Student group participates in diabetes walk

first_imgFriends of Notre Dame Diabetes, a campus support group for diabetics, participated in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund (JDRF) Walk to End Diabetes on Sunday afternoon. Junior Nancy Joyce, who organized Notre Dame’s participation for the walk, said the annual event attracts diabetics and those who support them from the South Bend area. “Each year, Type 1 diabetics and their families and friends create teams, and they raise money for Type 1 diabetes (T1) research through JDRF,” she said. “After being in touch with the local South Bend [and] Mishawaka JDRF when our group first started out last year, we decided to participate in the Walk as ‘Team Notre Dame.’” The walk is a very popular event in the area, Joyce said. “The walk is a pretty well-established event in the South Bend community and based on our experience last year, it was very well-attended,” she said. “There were lots of local sponsors who came out in support of the event.” To raise money for the event, Friends of Notre Dame Diabetes sold baked goods in LaFortune Student Center and encouraged walkers to fundraise on their own. The team hopes to attract community sponsors to partner with for next year’s walk, Joyce said. Overall, Joyce said the response on campus has been positive. “We’ve had a really positive response to the event on campus,” she said. “Our group is a small group, so publicizing the event was our biggest challenge, but when people did find out about it, they were very supportive.” JDRF helps raise awareness of T1 diabetes and fundraise for research, Joyce said. “JDRF also supports advocacy for T1 diabetics through programs such as the Children’s Congress, a leadership program that brings T1 diabetics to Washington, D.C., to speak with congressional officials about key federal funding opportunities for T1 [diabetes],” she said. Friends of Notre Dame Diabetes was founded last year by seniors Joe Williams and Gina O’Riordon, who both have TI diabetes, Joyce said. Initially, the club was started to help diabetics transition from high school to college. “As the group has grown, we’ve added more of a service element,” she said. “Several of our group members have been trained at Memorial Hospital [of South Bend], and anytime a child is diagnosed with diabetes at Memorial, the hospital calls us and we send several [Notre Dame] diabetics to talk with the child and help ease their fears about their disease.” Joyce said the students working with the program at Memorial are called “diabetes sidekicks”. “Our hope with this program is to show both newly diagnosed diabetics and their parents that though diabetes can be challenging, frustrating and scary sometimes, it is possible to live a very normal life as a T1 diabetic,” she said.last_img read more

1964: The Tribute Deliver Spot-On Beatles at NYCB Theatre at Westbury [Concert Review]

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York As if history was repeating itself, screaming fans could not be contained to their seats with a quartet uncannily mimicking the Fab Four on the floor of NYCB Theatre at Westbury Friday, Aug. 29, 2014.The mop tops, heeled boots and spiffy suits were just the icing on the cake for 1964: The Tribute, widely regarded as the best Beatles cover band on Earth. The group maintained the illusion with their self-depricative British humor between songs and bowing after each ditty. And then there was the competitive back-and-forth banter between lead singer John Lennon, played by Mark Benson, and George Harrison, played by Tom Work.“This here is a 12-string guitar, which has twice as many strings as John’s,” Work joked to the packed crowd, some of whom danced in the aisles during the high-energy performance. “It gets twice the applause.”The group, which includes Mac Ruffing as Paul McCartney on bass and Bobby Potter as Ringo Starr on drums, has played nearly 3,000 shows worldwide in their 30 years on tour. They’ve drawn even more crowds this year amid the 50th anniversary of the British Invasion.Across their two 45-minute sets, the act played hits off The Beatles’ earliest albums, including “I Wanna Hold Your Hand,” “Michelle” and “Twist and Shout.” They even came out for an encoure to play “Rock and Roll Music,” “Rollover Beethoven” and “Love Me Do.”Although the band they cover never had to deal with fans wielding their cell phones during concerts, the tribute act did what The Beatles would have done before playing “In My Life”: Encourage fans to call loved ones to let them hear the song.After all, as they sang: “Some have gone and some remain/All these places have their moments/With lovers and friends I still can recall.”For more show-stopping gigs at NYCB Theatre at Westbury, check out their page in The Island EarWatch The Beatles’ First Appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show:last_img read more

That time I almost won The Amazing Race

first_imgIt was one of the greatest heartaches of my life. There I stood with the finish line and the million-dollar prize just a few short steps away. Even Phil wanted me to win. Of this I was certain. But I couldn’t continue. I was forced to drop out due to a blown knee. I had let myself down, I had let my wife down, and I had let down my millions of adoring fans. To say I was crushed would be a gross understatement.Back in the real world, things were less devastating. I sat fused to my favorite recliner in a catatonic delirium brought on by just the right mix of fever and narcotic pain meds, watching a DVR’d episode of a popular reality TV show. Later I learned that my wife was quite amused as I rambled on about our Amazing Loss.When you manufacture your own reality in a setting like this, the consequences are minimal. Your wife will probably laugh at you. Readers of your blog might think you’ve lost your marbles. But that’s about it.However, when you manufacture your own reality in business, the results can be disastrous.Every organization I’ve ever worked with has bragged about all the reasons they’re better than their competitors. However, until pushed, very few have been willing to share the areas where they’re not better than their competitors. Sadly, this taboo area of discussion is also one of the most important, because these are precisely the points where your competitors will attack you. If you’re not ready for the attack, you’ll lose big.Maybe your institution competes against big regional or national banks. Sure, you’re local. You’re friendly. You don’t commit fraud by opening unauthorized accounts and you don’t invest in DAPL. But if consumers truly believed those were the most important qualities for a financial institution to possess, why do the big guys continue to pick up market share? Hiding from your competitive vulnerabilities is like believing the best way to cure an illness is to ignore it. It may feel good for a little while, but trust me, you’ll live to regret it. Instead, look at what the big banks do better than you. How convenient is your mobile app? How easy it is for small businesses to make a mobile deposit or fund a loan? Do you offer instant issue cards? If your competitor is better than you, what should you do about it? The first and best option is, of course, to fix the problem. For example, if your competitor has a better service reputation than you, developing and executing a comprehensive program to significantly boost your service reputation is entirely doable. I did exactly that when I was at Symitar the second time.But truth be told, you can’t win every battle. Sometimes you’ll come in second. The important thing is, you can’t ignore that when it happens. You need to market around your shortcomings, whatever they may be. Focus on the areas where you’re better and be prepared to talk about why the areas where you’re better are more important than the areas where you’re not. It all comes down to embracing reality.It only took me a few minutes and a precautionary trip to the ER to get over my Amazing Race loss. However, were I to lose in this amazing race we call business because I refused to remove my rose-colored glasses, I suspect the recovery wouldn’t be nearly as fast, if it came at all. 22SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John San Filippo John is the co-founder of OmniChannel Communications, Inc., a company that specializes in B2B marketing to community financial institutions.
