first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Westport Winery Garden ResortWestport Winery Garden Resort is offering a unique inclusion for 2016 reservations in their new outdoor event center. Bookings of their Victorian Wedding Garden and Pavilion have a $1000 rental fee that includes $1000 in wine, so basically use of the facility is free.Creator of this concept, and winery co-owner Kim Roberts said, “It seems like the price of getting married has become almost cost prohibitive in some situations.” This is verified in the trend of many couples eloping to avoid the drama of escalating competition in creating the most over-the-top ceremony or simply indefinitely postponing the ceremony to save money for their first home.Westport’s goal is to make it affordable and fun to simply tie the knot without breaking the budget.Wesport Winery’s gardens and pavilion are the perfect setting for an intimate, outdoor ceremony and reception.“The notion that a wedding needs to be an extravaganza puts a lot of extra pressure on everyone involved,” Roberts cautioned. With that in mind, the winery allows couples to potluck or hire their favorite caterers when enjoying the resort’s garden wedding venue.In addition to the wine, the $1000 fee includes use of the Victorian Wedding Garden, a high-top pavilion tent, the wedding ready room, and a separate parking area for wedding guests.There is a sign in the wedding ready room—which used to be a chicken house—that says it best: “Find soulmate, Pick a date, Invite friends, Dress special, Say ‘I do’, Live happily ever after.’” The resort’s goal is to allow couples to focus on their future together, building a home and having a family without not being saddled with debt or worry on the day of the wedding.Westport Winery Garden Resort earned the title Best Northwest Winery from King 5 Evening Magazine.Even though the word winery is in the name, all ages—and dogs—are welcome at celebrations in this garden resort. “In our family, the dogs are sometimes the most important consideration as we make decisions on where we want to spend our leisure time.” This is why the resort boasts an off-leash dog park in addition to welcoming dogs throughout the gardens while on-leash.Dates are limited, so those considering a 2016 wedding should contact the winery’s event coordinator Dawn Jones. Her direct email is [email protected] Winery Garden Resort is located on the corner of Highway 105 and South Arbor Road halfway between Aberdeen and Westport.

first_imgSome Residents Concerned About Possible Carcinogens By John Burton The issue concerning the borough’s Piping Rock Memorial Park is “its playability,” said Mayor John Ekdahl. “We’re wearing out the grass fields,” the mayor said of the park and officials are looking at ways to improve it. The mayor and Borough Council are considering a proposal from the borough Parks and Recreation Director Sarah Orsay, and committee, for the park and its accompanying Martello Field on East River Road to install a synthetic turf surface on a portion of the site. According to Orsay, the synthetic turf would be used to convert the baseball field and a portion of the small lacrosse/youth football practice field into a regulation-size, all-weather, multisport field. The field, if the plan moves for ward, would be able to accommodate many sports activities, including soccer, lacrosse, flag football, tackle football practice, field hockey and the use of school teams, Orsay said.The plan under consideration, Orsay noted, would also retain the park’s tennis courts and the existing playground would be relocated to the eastern end of the current lacrosse field and the park continuing to be home to the 9/11 memorial.“I think what’s critical to the project is to maintain the neighborhood park-like feel,” she said.This park, given its extensive use for the various sports activities, as well as the other town parks with natural grass covering, takes a beating, Ekdahl said.As it currently stands, Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School allows the borough rec program to conduct some activities on the high school’s artificial turf field. “Having said that,” meaning the high school’s help, Ekdahl continued, “we’re still running out of space.”“We actually have to take one field a year out of play to entirely habilitate it,” Ekdahl said.“Between the high school, elementary school, recreation (program) and travel sports,” Orsay said, “the fields are in constant use.”In the fall the borough parks get 3,500 participants using them each week, Orsay explained. She said, if a child has two practices and one game in a week, that constitutes three “participants.”“The demand for the regulation field is far exceeding our ability to supply, and certainly our ability to meet the demand, as well as maintain the integrity and beauty of our parks,” Orsay offered.“We are getting some pushback,” however, from some residents over what is being considered, Ekdahl acknowledged. The objections, in part, are coming from some who live in the vicinity of the park. Others, Ekdahl said, have raised issue with the use of synthetic turf and possible health considerations. A recent, controversial study charged that some material used in the turf installed on sports fields and in playgrounds – coming from such items as recycled rubber vehicle tires – could be cancer-causing.
“As I told them” – meaning the residents – “we haven’t even gotten there yet,” as to what material or even if the council would move for ward with the plan, Ekdahl pointed out.The Monmouth County Open Space Grant program has awarded the borough $250,000 for the project; the borough is required to make a matching contribution; and officials are awaiting to hear on their second grant application, seeking an additional $135,000, which would also need the borough to match that amount. County officials should make that announcement in January 2016. Funding is contingent on the borough obtaining the necessary money for the project, Orsay said.Orsay said the entire project is estimated at $1.2 million.Should the borough win the second county grant, the council would likely move forward with having its engineer produce a feasibility study. Depending on what that study shows, officials would likely look at funding options, including private sources, to cover the borough’s costs, Ekdahl explained.Should the council move forward, “I think it’d be greatly enjoyed by the community,” Orsay maintained.last_img read more

first_imgYou are not alone out there in the run up to new lead paint laws that take effect on April 22 of 2010. For us the law won’t alter the way we do business on a whole bunch of jobs since the majority of our projects are on homes born after 1977–homes to which the law does not apply. We work mostly in the suburbs, and considering the enthusiasm with which this city sprawled through the last quarter of the 20th century, there is no shortage of 15-30 year-old homes that need help. However, the small number of projects that we do on older homes tends to account for a disproportionally large percentage of our gross revenue so that means we have to pay attention.There are two types of certificationAn examination of the guidelines reveals a distinction between who must become certified for what: Renovation companies that are not sole proprietorships must be certified as both a “firm” and as a “renovator”, while sole proprietorships require only the “renovator” designation. To become a Certified Firm, you have to apply to the EPA www.epa.gov/oppt/lead/pubs/toolkits.htm and prove that a representative of your company has completed the proper training–for us that is Tommy, our VP of Construction Operations—and pay $ 300.00 (registration is good for five years). This can take up to 90 days so you better get started today!The representative who has completed the training is the renovator. Renovator training involves attendance at an 8-hour class (better than defensive driving, but not as cool as concealed handgun training), with lots of technical procedures, pretty good pizza and a very nice certificate. Tommy learned that if children under the age of six are present on a regular basis in an older home where more than 6 square feet of lead-based paint are to be disturbed in a room (or 20 sq. ft. of lead-based paint on the exterior), testing must be done. The testing is not difficult, and it is not technical, but like everything else related to compliance and CYA it requires comprehensive documentation.We deal with the small jobs and sub out the big stuffIf a swab comes back the wrong color, we have to do two things: use more swabs to see how widespread the issue is, then decide if the cure is something we want to tackle ourselves or not. It will be something we want to do if it involves, for example, limited removal and repair of some baseboards and window sills. Anything more than that, though, means we hire someone to do it the dirtiest work for us—an independent contractor who is a full-time specialist. And we are no more interested in becoming a lead-paint expert than in becoming a master plumber, electrician, or watchmaker. What we are very interested in is orchestrating the specialists and managing the new regulations. We must adhere to important new standards and document every single step along the way whether we do the remediation ourselves or not.Share your leaden war stories with Tommy, our lead Renovator or Michael, President of our Certified Firm!last_img read more


first_imgEarlier this year, President Trump signed an executive order aimed at promoting the advancement of American AI technology. This announcement came as a surprise to many in the tech industry, but a welcome one. Some say the U.S. is falling behind the curve when it comes to investing in AI research and development. But we’ll find out about Trump’s AI initiatives and the future of AI and governments.With the Chinese government hailing AI development as a priority for the country, and many small but wealthy countries like the UAE creating ministries for AI  the U.S. may find that its place as the leader of the AI field is threatened. Steps should be taken to ensure that there is a plan to promote American research into AI development. This new executive order may be the necessary push to keep the U.S. at the forefront of the AI field.Accelerating America’s Leadership in Artificial IntelligenceThe executive order, entitled Accelerating America’s Leadership in Artificial Intelligence, contains five core pillars regarding the expansion of  U.S. AI research efforts. These pillars are: AI: How it’s Impacting Surveillance Data Storage Related Posts AI Will Empower Leaders, Not Replace Them International engagement, which addresses multi-national collaboration without sacrificing the competitive technological edge the U.S. is seeking. Research and development, which requests that federal research organizations devote funding to and report upon advancements in AI research. What the executive order doesn’t include, however, is any information on how these initiatives will be funded. The Trump administration reportedly has stated that it is up to Congress to allocate funding for the new changes.In addition to a lack of information on how these initiatives will be funded, many industry experts warn that the current executive order is light on critical details. Kate Crawford, the co-director of the New York University-based AI Now Institute raises concerns over the passing mentions of privacy and civil liberties. She is concerned that the administration’s controversial track record when it comes to these essential issues may lead to an abuse of AI technology without proper limitations put in place by ethics committees.What Does the New AI Initiative Mean for Researchers?The move to push for more significant research and reporting on AI, as well as more training and educational opportunities to increase the AI-knowledgeable workforce, is applauded as a long overdue change. After the Obama administration’s 2016 report on artificial intelligence and automation, little has been done to advance the U.S.’s knowledge and understanding of AI. Meanwhile, the Chinese government has made a 200 percent increase in AI research and development funding since 2000, which is putting China on track to match U.S. spending in the field by the end of the year.While it is crucial to develop a national strategy regarding AI development, the executive order is merely the first step in the right direction. Jason Furman, a Harvard professor who served on the Obama administration’s Council of Economic Advisors, points out that the new AI executive order is aspirational, but lacks a detailed plan to reach the stated objectives. If the Trump administration follows through on the executive order, it is possible that the hoped-for changes can occur.If the executive order is to make a tangible difference for American AI researchers, it is clear that a more formal plan must be developed and goals must be set to remain competitive in the world of AI.Advancing Artificial Intelligence for Governmental UseAI has nearly limitless applications, including national security and warfare. In the past few decades, we’ve seen how the use of artificial intelligence has dramatically changed the face of war and the ability to maintain national security. It is, of course, one of the goals in advancing U.S. power in the field of AI to continue security and surveillance developments.These advancements, however, cannot be pursued without close attention to the civil liberties and personal privacy of citizens. While artificial intelligence and facial recognition software have immense power to assist government surveillance efforts, it also has been demonstrated that AI is not free from racial bias and prejudice. It is critical that policymakers not only think about the advancement of AI but the inclusion of our values while implementing this technology.Erik Brynjolfsson, a management professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, states, “China in many ways has very different values than we have in the West about things like surveillance, privacy, democracy, property rights. If we want Western values to thrive, we need to play a role in maintaining and even extending the technological strength we’ve long had.”The U.S. has the power to shape the face of artificial intelligence in incredible ways, primarily through international collaboration.This collaboration, however, cannot be entirely successful with the current “arms race” view many countries hold about AI research and development. There is no one path to progress in the field of artificial intelligence, and the advancement of AI isn’t a winner-takes-all situation.It is an important consideration that our ethical standards and policy guidelines keep pace with the rapid development of artificial intelligence. The field isn’t free from controversy, which is why it is especially important to address the concerns of automation-cause job loss, personal data privacy, and civil liberties proactively and frequently as the research and development of AI continues to evolve.Whether the Accelerating America’s Leadership in Artificial Intelligence executive order will bring about tangible change in the artificial intelligence field is yet to be seen, but this order is hopefully the beginning of a new age of research and technological advancement for America. We are excited to discover how this policy will impact the world of artificial intelligence and continue to watch the advancement of American AI.

first_imgFrom a relative unknown, Ashwini Chidananda Akkunji has become a well-known name in sporting circles in a very short time.Her heroics at the Delhi Commonwealth Games (CWG) and the Guangzhou Asiad have marked the 23-year-old from Udupi in Karnataka as one with a great future.Ashwini is startled at her new found fame but is slowly coming to terms with it. “Life has completely changed for me since the CWG and Asian Games. So much recognition has come my way in recent times that I feel truly humbled,” Ashwini told Mail Today after she and several other Indian gold medallists at the Guangzhou Asiad called on President Pratibha Patil at the Rashtrapati Bhawan on Saturday.Ashwini teamed up with Sini Jose, Mandeep and Manjeet Kaur to win the women’s 4x400m relay gold at both the CWG and the Asiad.Incidentally, it was India’s third consecutive gold medal in the relay at the continental extravaganza.If this was not enough, she bagged the yellow metal in the 400m hurdles too.”The reception when I returned home was just seen to be believed. I have heard people burst into tears when I won,” she said.”This will motivate me to work even harder in the future and encourage more youngsters, especially those from a rural background like me, to take up sport as a career.” Ashwini was delighted with her interaction with the President.”She was very gracious and I am very happy to have got the opportunity to interact with her. She had a look at my two gold medals as well,” she said.advertisementAshwini was considered a relay specialist for a long time before she paid more attention to the 400m hurdles, and the results are obvious.She had clocked 59.49 seconds in the event at the Delhi CWG and failed to make it to the final. A month later in Guangzhou, she surprised everyone by registering a personal best timing of 56.15 seconds to win the gold medal – an improvement of over three seconds.”I did not take the 400m hurdles too seriously till about a month ago when I started working seriously on the event,” she said.”The competition at the Asian Games was very tough but my coach – Yuri Vogordonik from Russia – had full faith in me which gave me great confidence. He has helped me in my physical as well as mental conditioning. I cherish this gold medal a lot. I had certain technical faults in my running style in the hurdles, which I worked on. That has resulted in the significant improvement in my timings.” She has been an integral part of the 4x400m relay team for which she runs the third leg.”There is a lot of team spirit within the group which pushes the girls to do better.” And she does not plan to stop improving any time soon.”I still have a lot of clearance while crossing the hurdles and I need to work on this and other technical deficiencies,” Ashwini observed.”My next aim is doing well at the 2012 London Olympics and I want to be at my best then.In 2011, we have the Nationals, the various Grand Prix and the Asian championships and I will focus on them.” As of now, the felicitations and celebrations are taking most of her time.”I fact, I have not done any training for the last several days,” she said.last_img read more
