Members of the Dreams Unlimited Clubhouse in Royal Oak show off their talents at an open day – Daily Tribune Wed, 22 Jun 2022 17:14:43 +0000

Members and staff at Easterseals Michigan’s Dreams Unlimited clubhouse in Royal Oak held an open house Tuesday to celebrate.

Members, relatives and others had a chance to see and hear the artistic talents of some members of the clubhouse, including the singing, art and music of a member who plays the saxophone.

The pavilion program run by Easterseals hosted the open house to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the pavilion program.

Club manager Irvin Weatherspoon said there were 45 club members, all aged 18 or over. Members’ surnames are not made public.

“Dreams Unlimited (clubhouses) is a psychosocial rehabilitation center program to help individuals learn skills to be independent in the community,” Weatherspoon said, “through finding a job, going to school, and eventually getting a house.”

There are 40 other Dreams Unlimited clubs across the state, he added.

Since 1992, Dreams Unlimited Clubhouse staff have helped 1,000 adults with serious mental illness learn the skills they need to succeed in everyday life.

“For members, we’re emulating an orderly workday,” Weatherspoon said. “It’s like a business framework where they can register and complete tasks. Members can also learn from each other by working side by side.

The Royal Oak Clubhouse opened in 2007 after moving from its former location in Oak Park.

There are two separate units in the facility.

“One is for the hospitality department where we pack lunches every day,” Weatherspoon said. “We have the meals that we serve to the members and they learn how to cook, clean and do the dishes.”

The other unit is clerical and handles member services, data collection and outreach. Members can also learn about job tasks that can help them.

Members also participate in clubhouse policy meetings, including daily duties, activities, menu planning, and policies.

One of the primary goals of the Easterseals Michigan Dreams Unlimited Clubhouse program is to help members prepare to re-enter the workforce, improve their career and educational skills, build self-confidence, build relationships, and join a community of professional and personal support.

“We are very fortunate to be able to partner with Clubhouse members on their journey to gainful employment,” Easterseals Michigan President and CEO Brent Wirth said in a statement. “It is the commitment of our staff, volunteers and Clubhouse members that underpins its success.

Summer has arrived and it seems like the perfect time to remind both our children and our CEOs of an immutable law of physics as well as a long standing tenet of pool etiquette – that you cannot pee in only part of the pelvis. For kids, it just makes good sense and a much more enjoyable experience for everyone. For CEOs, especially as we enter another year where electoral politics will be front and center, it’s more of a fair warning that the rules have changed. Sticking your head in the sand and hoping no one will notice your absence until the storm passes makes no sense.

Any CEO who thinks he can still separate, isolate and insulate his business policies and practices from the sordid politics, culture wars and social media slander sewers that have engulfed us and drowned out all civil discourse is seriously mistaken. The concept that you’re just going to pay attention to your business and not get involved in these other issues is more than naive at this point. Noise, concerns, exposures and risks are unavoidable – just like peeing in the pool – and they are also increasingly linked to every part of your business. This includes customers, employees, products, safety and environmental concerns and, unfortunately, social and political issues as well.

You’re in the thick of it, whether you like it or not, and you’re going to have to do something because the success of your business depends on it. Even if your customers are unaware of some of these issues and controversies, you are not off the hook. Because there are many other parts to the conversation.

Just to be clear, those furious, crazed barbarians outside your walls aren’t the only ones storming the gates. In fact, just as much grief, anguish, and upheaval will likely come from some of your own inner co-workers as well, and those numbers seem to be increasing faster every day. Whether it’s due to increased employee unease, leading to more union organizing drives by disgruntled MBAs now working as baristas, or the pain of having to deal with angry, over-stressed customers who don’t have the slightest desire to be civil or understanding, the gloves are off.

At one point it made a lot of sense to suggest that – particularly in terms of customer conversations and confrontations – your employees leave their own politics and issues at home, even if in terms of masking that’s not not always possible.

Unfortunately, post-pandemic personal politics is still a big deal, with busy and volatile conversations between employees, so I recently suggested that in terms of allaying internal unrest, the best plan might be to simply point out clearly that some tense and sensitive subjects are simply no longer appropriate for the office if they really were.

But honestly, I’m afraid that boat has sailed. If you don’t step in and step in, you can be sure that someone else will fill the void and continue those conversations. And your efforts and actions will need to differentiate between the variable nature of discussions, which is primarily a matter – like navels – of innies and outies. Let your belly button guide you.

Innies relate to a company’s rules, regulations, procedures and policies – including editorial matters and content choices – that relate directly to the company and its operations. One such internal area is Netflix’s decision to continue to deliver creative content that is acceptable to some viewers and loathsome to others. Netflix’s bold direction toward employees is that the company will endorse a wide variety of content that’s guaranteed to offend everyone at some point. Oh, and if you don’t like it, you can leave.

Office hours and remote or hybrid work are also internal issues. Again, at least in Tesla’s case, Elon Musk’s position couldn’t be clearer: “Come back to the office 40 hours a week or go work somewhere else.” Ultimately, these are the direct concerns of your business and your employees and, for better or worse, they are entitled to a statement from management on the state of affairs and, ideally, on the why certain decisions are made.

Exits, on the other hand, are issues – especially cultural and political concerns – that have to do with the outside world. Make no mistake: these issues will eventually and directly impact your own life, family and livelihood, and that of your people. Notwithstanding this inevitable prospect, I still advise that the best, smartest course is discretion. Your team (and perhaps your customers) are always entitled to an explanation, but it’s perfectly appropriate to ignore the bullying and BS of a vocal, woke minority and simply take the position that the company is not going to not take a stand.

If you need clear evidence of the difficulty and danger of stepping out of your comfort zone and trying to navigate one of these culture wars, Disney’s continuing problems are a clear example. There were plenty of Disney customers and cast members on both sides of the gay rights issue and Disney’s first instinct was to try to stay out of the fray. When the CEO was humiliated quickly enough to change his mind, everything went awry. Sadly, it’s pretty clear that disgraced former President Donald Trump and shameless Florida Governor Ron DeSantis – aided and abetted by their thugs – will continue to harass corporate targets such as Disney in order to continue scamming sucker money from MAGA.

The situation only gets worse when the lines between inside and outside become even more blurred. Amazon ran into a similar problem when some employees objected to the company selling books they deemed trans-negative. When external concerns are drawn into the business environment and interfere with work operations, attitudes and interpersonal relationships, it becomes an endless Pandora’s box where no one, even with the best of intentions, can ever win.

Prayer is the first resort Tue, 21 Jun 2022 07:07:34 +0000

Alfred, Lord Tennyson, once wrote that “more things are accomplished by prayer than this world dreams of”. Unfortunately, so many people turn to prayer as a last resort. I would suggest we turn to prayer as a first resort.

One of my favorite prayers is the rosary. Between the tens of the rosary, I add two short additional prayers. A traditional prayer is: “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those most in need of your mercy. I remember hearing this prayer as a child when I was an altar server during the blessing in the 1950s. After the blessing, members of the Holy Name Society, Knights of Columbus, or sodality recited these words during the rosary.

As a priest, I created my own supplemental prayer. Between the tens of the rosary, I pray: “Lord Jesus, that all men be freed from suffering. May everyone be free from fear. May all peoples be filled with peace and joy. May all people be filled with loving kindness. May all peoples come to the fullness of life and love in your kingdom where you live forever and ever.

I always offer the first decade of the Rosary in thanks for all the good things in life. I offer the second decade for everyone who has asked for my prayer or for whom I have promised to pray. The third decade, I pray that God will grant fullness of life to the living and eternal life to the dead. I offer the fourth decade for the poor, the sick, the suffering and all those who have asked for my prayer. The last decade, I pray that all be saved and no one be lost.

Sometimes I pray the rosary while I go down to the basement of the presbytery. I also often pray the Rosary when I drive. I’m obviously focused on driving, but the Rosary seems to create inner peace while I’m driving. There is no wrong way to pray.

Most often we pray in a building, perhaps at home or in church, or from a book or hymn. Formal prayers require us to be in a fixed position. The rosary offers us the possibility of praying as we go along.

A Red Sox win? Break out the feather boa, whistles, strobe lights, and gem-encrusted mask Mon, 20 Jun 2022 13:46:36 +0000

BOSTON — There’s a yellow feathered boa and a silver, gem-embellished eye mask hanging on a hook in John Schreiber’s locker just inside the door of the Red Sox clubhouse.

Peek across the room – and watch carefully – you might notice the strobe light mounted on the wall below a TV where the players do their post-match interviews. (It’s disabled as these interviews air on NESN.)

Sometimes a fake $100 bill from a set of plastic money guns was left on the floor, blending into the carpet. And a few weeks ago, a box of whistles sat on a sofa near the players’ lockers.

These weird phenomena are all connected: They’re all set pieces used in an elaborate post-game celebration after the Red Sox win, centered on Schreiber, the 28-year-old reliever journeyman who found his groove in Boston this season. Standing outside the Red Sox clubhouse after the wins, all passers-by can hear a whole commotion with cheers and shouts, whistles and horns.

“It’s quite special,” said Kiké Hernández. “I would say anyone who isn’t in this clubhouse after games, after Ws, is missing out on a hell of a performance that deserves to have their own Vegas tour.”

“It’s like a dance party,” Kevin Plawecki said.

“Every ‘W’, all eyes are on Schreiber,” said Alex Verdugo.

“There’s a bit of dancing, a lot of drama and props,” Schreiber said. “All that stuff, so it’s kind of fun.”

The Red Sox are silent on the specific details of this postgame performance, but make no mistake, everyone is involved. The boa and mask appeared in Schreiber’s locker one day. Rumor has it that Rich Hill went to Party City for the attire. Plawecki added vuvuzelas. Manager Alex Cora provided the money guns. Schreiber’s moves are a big part of the fun, but the point of it all is to celebrate and recognize the players who had the biggest impact on the club’s victory that day.

“It’s been a lot of fun,” Hill said. “We come together as a team, obviously winning helps a lot, and being able to come together as a team is something that everywhere I’ve been has always been a post-game celebration. Just trying to highlight some big plays of the day or some of the big shots that the guys got and some of the throwing performances on the mound so that’s what we’re trying to do, try to shed some light to everyone and enjoy it together as a team.”

In the midst of a long season, which started off on the wrong foot with losses piling up quickly at the start, the Red Sox aren’t taking any of those wins for granted.

“(I’m glad) we got something after winning football games because a lot of good teams have their thing after games, and we really had nothing before Schreiber joined the team,” said Hernandez. “It helps us vibrate as a team and helps us come together and you always need those guys that are in quotes ‘the glue’. I would say he does a great job of being one of those guys and everything what a team can do to come together and enjoy certain things as a group and bring us closer together, I think that’s very necessary in every clubhouse I’m really glad Schreiber is here and now that I have the 30s, I don’t need to be that guy anymore.

It all started last year, with Triple-A Worcester to be exact. No one can remember the specific game he started or even how he started, but he made it to the majors and he’s here to stay.

“We were trying to figure out how it started and we literally couldn’t remember where, when or why,” Schreiber said. “It kind of happened one night in Worcester, maybe there was a good song or something and I was in a good mood.”

When Chris Sale was in Worcester last summer recovering from Tommy John surgery, he knew about the wild post-match scene and loved it. A few months later, Schreiber was recalled from Worcester in September during the Red Sox’s COVID-19 outbreak. Sale begged him to break up the post-match performance.

“He saw it and said, ‘You better do this here,'” Schreiber recalled. “The first series I was in (at Boston last year) and we won a game, he said, ‘Okay, it’s time to shine.'”

Schreiber was ejected after a three-inning outing in September. He pitched well in spring training for the Red Sox, but didn’t make the cut initially for Opening Day. At the end of April, he was called back and brought his routine with him. He was fired for a few days much to the chagrin of his teammates, but was recalled on May 6 and has been with the big league club ever since.

“He was throwing really well and it felt like we’d love to have him in our bullpen, but also selfishly love having him in our locker room after games,” Hernandez said. “We were all very happy to see him when he was called up and of course now he’s reinvented himself and throws a lot harder and is extremely dominant. But I think what he brings to the clubhouse sometimes can be more important than what he does on the mound.

A 15th-round pick by the Tigers in the 2016 draft, Schreiber made his major league debut in 2019. But after two seasons with the Tigers, posting a 6.28 ERA in 28 appearances, the club released him to the start of 2021. The Red Sox liked his side arm action and thought they could make some tweaks, getting him back from waivers in February 2021. He was slated for assignment at the end of spring training but straight to Worcester. After a season of honing his repertoire, working closely with pitching coach Paul Abbott, adding a lead and increasing his speed, Schreiber has emerged as an intriguing option for the bullpen, and although he started the year again in Worcester, the Red Sox had their eye on him.

This year, 20-plus appearances with the Red Sox, he posted an 0.87 ERA, struck out 24 and walked five, becoming a legit weapon outside the bullpen; he eliminated the team in a scoreless eighth inning in Sunday’s 6-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

And while his dominance on the mound was important for the Red Sox, the postgame contributions were just as important. His winding road so far has given him perspective, allowing him to drop his normally shy and serious demeanor to put on a post-game show his teammates can’t get enough of.

“That’s the most important thing,” Schreiber said. “Coming here with Boston, I just realized that you have to have fun here to be successful and I think that’s just the most important part, trying to have that mindset, going out there and enjoy.”

His teammates love the energy on and off the mound, but appreciate his intense in-game character for his goofy routine after the win.

“Knowing him in the bullpen from post-game, he’s a 100% one-to-nine competitor and a different cat, but as soon as that last one is out, he’s all about (the celebration),” Matt Strahm said. “He keeps the guys on their toes and stays light, but from rounds one through nine he’s a serious cat. He did it straight away when he got here, watching the team gravitate around that and grab it has been fun.

Consumer Voice: Give your kids swimming lessons, teach them water safety | Company Mon, 20 Jun 2022 06:00:00 +0000

If you have summer vacation plans or are headed to the pool, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) urges parents, grandparents and caregivers to enroll children in swimming lessons to help to prevent drowning.

During the COVID-19 pandemic closures, many pools and recreation centers have canceled classes. The AAP said it was important to re-enroll children in lessons and make sure they know how to stay safe around the water.

“Drowning has long been one of the leading causes of death in children and sadly it remains the leading cause of death by injury in children ages 1 to 4 in our country,” said pediatrician Sarah Denny, lead author of AAP policy. drowning prevention statement.

Voice of the Consumer: Lots to offer seniors at this week’s expo

“It is really essential that we are proactive in preventing these drowning deaths. So when we released the policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics, we really focused on two different scenarios: the first is when children are meant to be near water, and that’s where we have layers of protection like swimming lessons, lifeguards, adult supervision, life jackets, that sort of thing.

“Then there’s the case that a child shouldn’t be in and around water, so if you have a pool at home and you’re cooking dinner, you don’t expect your kids to have access. in the water, so you can’t have your eyes directly on them. But there is still a risk of drowning, so what can we do to avoid drowning in this scenario? And that would be four-sided fences, door alarms, restricting access for the child to go into the water.”

In 2017, more than 1,000 children died of drowning in the United States, according to the AAP.

Voice of the consumer: important warning about slant rails and crib bumpers

“Swimming lessons are great, and have been shown in children over the age of one to reduce the risk of drowning, but it’s also important to remember that swimming lessons do not protect our children from drowning,” Denny said. “When in the pool, even if there is a lifeguard on duty, if you have a beginning swimmer you should always be within easy reach of that swimmer – very close parental supervision or supervision an adult.”

“It is helpful if you are perhaps at a lake or at a large gathering to have an assigned ‘water spotter’ and it is that person’s duty and job to watch, without distraction, children in the water,” she added. “That means you’re not on your phone, you’re not reading your book, and you can turn that person around once in a while.”

The AAP said it’s important your child knows at least the basics to stay safe this summer.

Voice of the Consumer: Yes, scammers also profit from national tragedies

“Swimming is a life skill. Even if you are not an exceptional swimmer, or if your child is not an exceptional swimmer, he does not have great strokes, he is not part of the swim team, it’s ok but kids should be able to have enough training and skills to get back to the surface of the water, if they should fall in it, then get to safety said Denny.

Those were the days, my friend Sun, 19 Jun 2022 23:03:46 +0000

The other night as our band made up Mutts of the Round Table by member in good standing Rick “Nash” Kalil— enjoyed a sumptuous Italian dinner at Billy Petepiece pad on island 17, talk, like he always does, go back to the good old days, or like Brian “The Cat” Roll likes to say “Back in the day”.

As the song says, it was my friend’s time.

It made me think of the question asked by one of the carpet rats a few years ago, “What is a baby boomer?”

Well, a baby boomer, or someone in the older division, remembers the soft drink dispensers that dispensed glass bottles. The milk was delivered in glass bottles with cardboard caps. The children were smoking candy flavored cigarettes. Two cents got you a Wax Coke-shaped bottle filled with colored water. We drank Kikk cola.

Having to write “I won’t be bad in class” 100 times, standing in a corner for 20 minutes, being given detention or not being allowed out at recess was having an “easy time”. The real punishment was to arrive home and learn that your parents had received a call from the principal. This is because, in almost all cases, the parents sided with the teachers. This is why the student-teacher ratio was not an issue.

When a child left in the morning on a non-school day and did not return for lunch, no one considered organizing a search party. They were having too much fun at the park. Everything was fine as long as you were back when the streetlights came on. The city has imposed a curfew for those under 16.

A child with a pocket knife did not cause the school to be locked down. The “weapons” of choice were peashooters and slingshots stowed in a back pocket.

A popular moderate resort, Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, is home to some of Disney Vacation Club’s most unique villas – the Treehouse Villas. Last month, Disney filed permits to work on several Treehouse Villa addresses.

DVC guests have been relocated while the overwater bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort have had a facelift and the new villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa have also been completely redesigned. Disney also filed permits for the entire Disney Vacation Club Annex at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge last week.

Therefore, it would not be shocking to see the Rustic Treehouse Villas upgraded at some point in the near future.

Zalatoris bogeyed on the seventh where his approach missed the green, but he got that shot back with a birdie in the ninth before covering the back nine at one under.

Defending Spanish champion Jon Rahm started the day one stroke behind and, with six holes to go in his round, was one stroke behind Zalatoris.

Pre-tournament favorite Rory McIlroy looked like he was about to give up after three first bogeys, but he held steady and, with no one else walking away, found himself back in the mix with a birdie in the 11th which left him two behind.

Masters champion Scottie Scheffler looked set to pull away from the pack when he bore 101 yards for the Eagle on the par-8 eighth to take a two-stroke lead but had a rocky start on the back nine to fall back into the mix.
