The Story of an Abstract Painting 4 / 4 Serena Bocchino standing in front of her art installation at Newark Penn Station-sponsored by NJ Transit and New Jersey State Council on the Arts ❮ ❯ Bocchino has created two mural-sized works on Raymond Boulevard East and West on the Newark Penn Station Building. On Raymond Boulevard East is a multi-panel installation of the original painting entitled “FRESH.” The painting was fabricated into geometric shapes to activate and enhance the façade of the brick-building wall.The art installation consists of three paintings from Bocchino’s oeuvre, “Star Power,” “Soar,” and “Over It.” All three works depict flight in a musical context. These works are enlarged to fill the 8-foot high by 26-foot long space dedicated to the art and are located on the Raymond Boulevard West wall of the Station.Directly across the building on the Raymond Boulevard East façade, is a multi-panel installation inspired by the original painting, “FRESH,” from Bocchino’s iPOP Series.All along the Market Street Tunnel of the Newark Penn Station, is Bocchino’s third art installation consisting of 27 panels -measuring 3×5 feet of illustrations taken from her children’s book, What Am I? The Story of an Abstract Painting. The book is based on the deconstruction of the abstract painting, “Landreach.”Bocchino states, “It is my hope that having the book enlarged and made into an art installation, will encourage passersby of all ages to learn about the creation of an abstract painting and after spending time with an abstract painting they may actually begin to see the world a little bit differently.In celebration of this installation and as community outreach, Ms. Bocchino and The Lucia Bocchino Fund for Promising Young Artists is donating 65 books to every art teacher in the Newark School District. The book will assist teachers in the classroom when they teach their students about abstract art and the story behind the painting includes contemporary issues of our day: inclusivity, friendship, and harmony.The New Interior Gallery Space of the Newark Penn Station near the PATH train entrance includes two works by Bocchino that have been reproduced and enlarged to 30 x 40 inches and are under glass, titled: “Untitled 67” and “Breakthrough Blush.” 1 / 4 Serena Bocchino Art Installation at Newark Penn Station of three Paintings, Star Power, Soar and Over It (all depicting flight in a musical context) on the West wall of Newark Penn Station Raymond Boulevard West 2 / 4 Serena Bocchino Art Installation at Newark Penn Station Raymond Boulevard East title: FRESH -a multi-panel installation. 3 / 4 Serena Bocchino Art Installation of 27 Illustrations enlarged to 3×5′ from the art book, What Am I?

Insurance staff attorney seminar set for Orlando April 30, 2003 Regular News Insurance staff attorney seminar set for Orlando The Bar’s CLE seminar on new rules governing insurance staff attorney law offices is set for June 25 in Orlando in conjunction with the Bar’s Annual Meeting.The program, presented by the Insurance Practices CLE Steering Committee, is set for 1-5 p.m. at the Orlando World Center Marriott.In January, the Supreme Court approved amendments to Bar rules that regulate the naming and structure of insurance staff attorney offices and address rules related to potential conflicts of interest in the insurance defense context. The rule amendments were the result of a three-year study by two Florida Bar committees of issues related to the area of insurance defense. The amendments take effect July 1.Katherine Giddings, who chairs the committee, said the seminar will address the amendments and issues related to compliance with those amendments. It also will provide a forum for discussion of national trends involving staff attorney offices; technical, practical, and ethical issues that may arise in connection with the amendments; and the operation of insurance staff attorney law offices generally.“Both insurers and insurance staff attorneys are sure to benefit from this enlightening and educational program,” Giddings said, adding that while the Bar is encouraging staff attorneys to attend the seminar, it is not mandatory that they do.Giddings said there has been some confusion because in adopting the new rules, the Supreme Court mandated that the Bar conduct a seminar on the new rules; it did not, however, mandate that staff attorneys attend.“I encourage attendance at the meeting,” Giddings said. “Florida is the first state in the nation to authorize the use of insurance staff attorneys by codifying Rules of Professional Conduct specifically governing the proper structure and naming of insurance staff attorney law offices. The new rules are sure to serve as a model for similar rules in other states.”For more information, see the Annual Meeting brochure in the May Florida Bar Journal or contact Giddings at (850) 425-1626 or [email protected]
By John BurtonATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – It’s surely an age-old question: What to do with the kids today? It’s a question Sherry Lombardi and Kerry Bowbliss, two young mothers with young children, found themselves asking.When they didn’t find an easy and available answer, they felt they weren’t alone and started a company that would meet that need.“We started it because we needed it,” Lombardi said, explaining how their company, Hulafrog, came to be.“The problem is there is so many things to do in the community,” Lombardi said, “but there is no central place to get that information.”The company got its unusual name because its founders wanted something fun, memorable and short that would convey the idea of children and their activities.Kerry Bowbliss, left, and Sherry Lombardi are co-founders of Hulafrog, an Internet company whose websites allow parents in a community to find activities and services for their children in one convenient location.The women, who both live in Atlantic Highlands, started their company in 2010, with a website focusing on the Red Bank area. Since launching the initial site and building their technology platform, Hulafrog has grown to 25 sites around the country. Its founders hope to be in 250 markets by the end of 2013, creating a truly national network of local sites.They are also hoping to garner the interest of national advertisers, Lombardi and Bowbliss said.The site lays out events, classes, activities, shopping and services geared for children, allowing the user to easily search and find specific things or just to get an idea.On the site for Monday, Sept. 17, among the items listed on the Red Bank site, under the “Top Rated Events Today,” were story time at the Red Bank Public Library for both the morning and afternoon sessions; and a baby-and-mom story time at the Monmouth County Public Library, Eastern Branch, in Shrewsbury Borough.The site also features “Our Picks” where those running the sites (publishers, as Lombardi and Bowbliss call them) highlight some events or activities. On the Red Bank site they emphasized the Monmouth Day Care’s Touch-a-Truck event, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Red Bank Middle School.“Anybody can go on the site and find hundreds of events,” Lombardi said.Along with those listings, site visitors can find listings of related businesses and profiles of some advertisers.The sites generate revenue through advertising and about 82 percent of visitors have contacted a business that advertised on the sites. The Red Bank site sees about 5,000 to 6,000 visitors a month, the women said.Both women have backgrounds in Internet industries. Lombardi previously co-founded a web analytics firm; Bowbliss was involved in the publishing end of the financial services industry.Both left the corporate grind as they started families. Lombardi has an 8-year-old daughter and a son, 6; Bowbliss’ kids are a son, 8, and a 6-year-old daughter. After staying home with their young ones, the two felt it was time to re-enter the workforce, but maybe not at their previous go-go pace.They feel theirs is not a unique story as they meet women with similar backgrounds who express a similar interest in getting involved in the venture. “Maybe they don’t have 60 hours to work, but maybe they have 30,” Lombardi said.The 25 Hulafrog sites’ publishers are currently all women, who have similar backgrounds – college educated, having worked in marketing or related fields.The operation is ”kind of Yelp for parents meets Avon,” was how Lombardi explained it, referencing the online guide and the iconic cosmetic company made up of legions of independent distributors. Like Avon, “being able to work at home has been a big part of it,” in attracting publishers, Lombardi said.“For the women who are running these sites, it’s challenging and rewarding,” she said. “It’s a job they can sink their teeth in.” The position allows them to get out in the community and relate to others in a peer-to-peer way.The publishers are paid on a commission basis, like Avon, Lombardi said.They believe the future looks promising because, as long as there are kids, parents are going to be looking for ways to entertain, educate and occupy.“Remember, there’s always something going on,” Bowbliss said.

OCEANPORT — The Oceanport School District is asking voters to weigh in on a $33 million bond referendum Dec. 10 to improve facilities at the Wolf Hill and Maple Place schools. According to business administrator Valery Petrone, the district has spent $1.7 million on required maintenance over the past 10 years. Frank A. Messineo, principal and owner of Solutions Architecture, said the district has a 2 percent cap on the budget that they cannot exceed, which makes it hard to fund large-ticket items like fixing leaking roofs or removing asbestos tiled flooring. “It’s an ongoing fight and we can never really catch up. And the referendum is our one best chance to do something like that,” he said. “And by allowing the district to finance these over many years, the cost is spread out and debt service aid is available.” If the referendum passes, both schools will receive new fire sprinkler systems; fire alarm systems; secure vestibules and lockdown capabilities; safety glazing on lower level windows; camera systems; new windows; new roofing systems; flooring; classroom furnishings; mechanical, electrical and plumbing upgrades; new lighting fixtures; parking improvements; and gym renovations, among other features. “Our buildings are rather aged and they are in serious need of upgrade and repair,” said Anne R. Facendo, the Oceanport superintendent. “The Wolf Hill Elementary School, which services pre-K through grade four, is 108 years old.” She also said the median age of the two combined facilities is 81.5 years old and the district’s last referendum was in 1996. The vote will be held Dec. 10 from 2 to 8 p.m. in Oceanport and in Sea Bright. The full presentation is available on the school website at oceanport.k12.nj.us. Wolf Hill School will see a new media center, cafeteria and connecting courtyard; six new classrooms will be added; toilet facilities will be renovated in pre-K and kindergarten classrooms, as now required by law; a new bus drop-off loop will be added; ADA-compliant spaces will be renovated; and more. According to the proposal, Wolf Hill School’s estimated 14,800-square-foot expansion will help accommodate the influx of children entering the Oceanport School District from the new housing developments at former Fort Monmouth. Because Sea Bright is a sending district to Oceanport schools, its residents will weigh in on the vote and the costs as well. If approved, the average Sea Bright homeowner can expect an extra $4.93 a month, or $59.19 a year, on their tax bills. He also said that bond rates are at a historic low, making this a good time to have a referendum. “But they’re not going to stay there forever so we want to try to take advantage of this,” he said. School board member Meghan Walker said a demographic study showed enrollment is steadily declining. However, 720 residential units are being built at the former fort. Projections show that once those children enter the school system, the demographics will about mirror the student population today. At a referendum presentation at a recent Sea Bright council meeting, a resident asked about the projections of student populations over the next five to 10 years. At Maple Place School, the science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) wing will be renovated with science labs, computer labs and more. There will also be renovations to the cafetorium, locker rooms with individualized showers, media center and guidance and physical therapist/occupational therapist rooms. According to the district, 81 of the 720 total residential units are “dedicated to Acute Care, which will produce no school age children, leaving 639 units.” Of the 639 units, 116 have already been built and are occupied. As a result, the district gained 20 new students. With this in mind, the district anticipates it will receive 109 students once the rest of the residential units are built. If the referendum is approved, the district anticipates receiving 34 percent of the total 40 percent it will be eligible for in state aid, to off-set costs. In that case, the average homeowner in Oceanport would pay an additional $43.32 a month, or $519.85 per year, on their tax bills.
An Inishowen councillor has called on the Office for Public Works (OPW) to fulfil their promise of developing a Conservation Management Plan for the Grianan of Aileach in Burt. Sinn Fein’s Jack Murray held talks with the OPW in February 2017 to discuss how a tourism project could be developed for the site.Speaking to Donegal Daily, following his initial address of the issue at the Inishowen Municipal District meeting last week, Murray said: “In February 2017, I arranged for a meeting of local stakeholders and the OPW (as custodians of Grianan of Aileach) to discuss how we could develop the tourism project. “That meeting was hailed as hugely positive as the OPW undertook to develop a Conservation Management Plan, after which we could look at further promoting this spectacular site.“That was two and a half years ago. Yet, this plan has yet to be published and there is no indication of when it will be.“I am now exacerbated with the delay as what we’re asking for is very simple.“I believe that small tasteful signage is erected, telling the fascinating story of Grianan to visitors and explaining the numerous points of interest that can be observed from the view. “Ultimately I would like to see a tour guide employed there to bring the story to life for visitors, while also ensuring that someone is there to protect against damage or vandalism.“I firmly believe that Grianan could be the number one tourist destination in the north-west of Ireland if it received the proper focus and investment.“To date, we’re just met with delays and the local community is fed up of it.”Tourism potential of Grianan of Aileach being wasted, warns councillor was last modified: September 19th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

7 June 2013South African footballer Benni McCarthy announced his retirement on Wednesday after a successful career that took him from South Africa to the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal and England before he returned home to finish his career with Orlando Pirates.McCarthy also earned 80 caps for Bafana Bafana during which he became South Africa’s all-time leading international goals scorer.He was at his best in the Africa Cup of Nations in 1998, making his mark with a four-goal performance against Namibia, with those four goals coming in the space of only 13 minutes. He finished the tournament with seven goals and was named in the team of the tournament as South Africa made it to the final where they were beaten 2-0 by Egypt.McCarthy was also a key player in the Bafana Bafana team that became the first South African side to play in the Fifa World Cup in 1998, and netted the team’s goal in a 1-1 draw with Denmark.‘Blessed’“I have been so blessed to have enjoyed a remarkable career that took me from the township fields of Nyanga Stadium, to winner’s medals in the Uefa Champions League and World Club Cup – the highest levels that a player can achieve in club football,” McCarthy said in a statement on Thursday.“I retire having represented my country at senior level 80 times and scored a record 31 goals. Two World Cup Finals, in France and Korea/Japan, an Olympic Games and a u-20 World Cup Finals will be memories that live in my heart forever.“And to have come home to South Africa for a final chapter, and to have won the treble with Orlando Pirates [in 2011/12] was the type of finale that only dreams are made of,” he said.Surpassed expectations“It has been a 17-year professional career that surpassed even my own expectations and I’ve been privileged to have played under many great coaches, including the very best, Jose Mourinho.”McCarthy’s most successful club years were spent in Portugal with Porto and in England with Blackburn Rovers, but before he played for those teams he turned out for Ajax Amsterdam and Spanish club Celta Vigo, having started his career with Seven Stars in Cape Town.In 2002, he starred for Porto, under Mourniho, while on loan from Celta Vigo, netting 12 times in 11 matches. When the Portuguese club sold fellow striker Helder Postiga to Tottenham Hotspur, Mourinho pounced and signed the South African striker to a permanent contract. McCarthy repaid that investment by topping the Portuguese League goal scoring charts the following season.Uefa Cup, Champions LeagueHe won the Uefa Cup with Porto in 2002-03 and the following season went on to lift the Champions League title with the Dragons. McCarthy played a crucial role in the team’s run, netting twice in a vital 2-1 victory over Manchester United in a round of 16 clash.Those two European successes turned Mourinho into the hottest property in coaching and he was soon signed by big spending English outfit Chelsea.McCarthy stayed on at Porto, scoring 34 goals in 74 matches, before being signed to a four-year contract by Blackburn Rovers in 2006.English Premier LeagueIt proved to be an inspired decision for the English club as McCarthy finished his first season as the second top scorer in the Premier League with 18 goals and 24 in all competitions. His league tally was bettered only by Didier Drogba and tied with Cristiano Ronaldo.An injury early the next season and the arrival of striker Roque Santa Cruz led to fewer playing opportunities for McCarthy.In February 2010, the South African signed with West Ham. Unfortunately, on his debut for the Hammers he suffered an injury that kept him out of action for six months. He ended up playing sparsely for the club and was released in early 2011.McCarthy then returned to action in South Africa with Orlando Pirates where he finished his career at the age of 35.He has indicated that he wishes to stay involved with football and will be working towards getting his coaching badges. He has previous experience working on television and hopes to do more TV work too.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material
