SANDY HOOK – Cadets from the drill team of the Marine Academy of Science and Technology (MAST) Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) took first place overall at Manchester High School’s recent Pearl Harbor Day drill competition. The Sandy Hook-based school competed against cadets from 12 other NJROTC units from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware in eight events, including academics, athletics, uniform inspection and precision marching.MAST placed first in Armed Platoon (commanded by Cadet Liam Kile of Tinton Falls), New Cadet Color Guard (commanded by Cadet Zachary Mansfield of Monmouth Beach), and Academics (commanded by Cadet Caroline Davidson of Brielle); second in New Cadet Basic (commanded by Cadet William Hurley of Monmouth Beach), Unarmed Platoon (commanded by Cadet Emily Fuller of Brielle), Varsity Color Guard (commanded by Cadet Jake O’Donnell of Tinton Falls) and Personnel Inspection (commanded by Cadet Shane McCutcheon of Manasquan); and third in Athletics (commanded by Cadet Liam Hoagland of Colts Neck).“The cadets really went above and beyond preparing for this meet,” said retired Navy Commander Tracie Smith-Yeoman, MAST’s Senior Naval Science Instructor. Students attending MAST are required to be active members of the NJROTC program during their high school years, but there is no requirement for military service after graduation. The program focuses on citizenship development and leadership.Cadets from the Marine Academy of Science and Technology Navy Junior ROTC drill team took home three firsts, four seconds and a third on their way to an overall first place finish at the Pearl Harbor Day drill competition at Manchester High School.Smith-Yeoman commended the cadets for their dedication. “Since we don’t have an indoor facility here on the Hook that’s large enough for drill practice, the cadets must practice outside in all kinds of weather,” she said.“We also don’t have late buses like many other schools, so the parents must arrange for transportation for the cadets when they finish after-school practice,” explained Smith-Yeoman. Many of the cadets live quite a distance away from the school, so the support of family and friends is integral to the program’s success. “This win belongs to the entire MAST family,” she said.Colts Neck High School’s NJROTC unit, headed by retired Marine Corps Major Gregory Penczak, took third place at the event. Atlantic City High School took second place.MAST’s next competition will be at Linden High School’s Martin Luther King Jr. meet on Jan. 15. They are hoping to qualify for the 2018 NJROTC Nationals Academic, Athletic & Drill Championship in Pensacola, Florida in April.This article was first published in the Jan. 4-11, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.

Africa First is the brainchild of NewYork-based film producer Kisha Cameron.RELATED ARTICLES • SA-set sci-fi satire huge hit in US• Top honours for SA movie• Film body eyes Garden Route• Bang Bang Club lives on in film• African film takes centre stageMEDIA CONTACTS • Africa [email protected] Garson (New York) A groundbreaking US initiative to develop and showcase African film talent is set to put the continent’s filmmakers on the fast track to success.Africa First, the brainchild of New York-based film producer Kisha Cameron, is a project run in partnership with big time United States movie distributors, Focus Features, to “find new voices, new talent on the continent – people who have something to say,” says Cameron.Focus Features’ movies include A Serious Man, Coraline, 9, Brokeback Mountain, Burn after Reading, Milk, Atonement and Catch a Fire, to name a few.The Africa First initiative runs a competition each year, choosing five winning scripts from across Africa and then helping the filmmakers develop their scripts into short films. Winners get US$10 000 (R76 700) to help make their films, a weekend in New York to workshop them first with a panel of advisors and the opportunity to get their films showcased at all the major American independent film festivals. The advisors are a group of top African filmmakers who have also worked in North America and the United Kingdom.Cameron, who has just returned from the Sundance Festival in Utah, is upbeat about the reception the Africa First 2008 winning films – which went into production last year – have just received there.Three of the five movies, all directed by women and also showcased at a screening in Manhattan late last year, went on to Sundance. The three – The Tunnel by South African Jenna Bass, Pumzi (Breath) by Wanuri Kahiu of Kenya, and N’Dar (Saint Louis Blues) by Dyana Gaye from Senegal – were all well-received at Sundance, says Cameron.The Tunnel is a moving, lyrical drama seen through the eyes of an imaginative 10-year-old girl on the traumas she experiences at the hands of President Robert Mugabe’s ruthless Fifth Brigade during the Matabeleland uprisings of the 1980s.Pumzi is an original, post-apocalyptic science fiction story set during a “water war” in Africa, now a desert, about a young woman’s secret struggle to grow a plant.N’Dar is a quirky and jolly road trip musical set in Dakar, a retro tribute to French and American musicals of the 1950s and 1960s.“The screenings went very well,” says Cameron. “There was a great deal of interest – and surprise,” she adds. “When people see the diverse range of films – a drama, a musical and a sci-fi – each very well executed, fresh and surprising, they say ‘Wow, this wasn’t what I was expecting from short films from Africa’.”The range of genres traversed by the movies “explodes the myth that African cinema comprises one genre”, said June Givanni, one of the advisors on the board, at the Manhattan screening. “People think they know the continent, they think they know what African cinema is.”Speaking from South Africa, Bass, a Zimbabwean, said Africa First gave her the structure to get The Tunnel made, the opportunity to work with filmmakers and the “confidence to fight for what was an often-difficult project”.Bass, who is pursuing several other film projects, said she felt “incredibly fortunate” to be a part of a group of African filmmakers. This “has given me hope for the cinematic future of our continent”, she adds. Her trips to New York and Utah gave her an introduction into “the way the US industry operates,” she says. She also met people who expressed interest in her work and who are following its progress.Kahiu is currently turning her short film, Pumzi , into a feature.When Africa First put out their first call for scripts in June 2008 “it was like water being soaked in the soil,” says Cameron. “We were saturated with applications. Since then it’s been tremendously exciting.”Cameron says the relationships cultivated between Focus Features and African filmmakers cut both ways. While the filmmakers retain the overall rights to their films, Focus Features gets the North American rights as well as “first look” should they be turned into features. “We are trying to make it a mutually beneficial project. It’s not just about ‘us helping you’. We’re not saying, ‘Here’s the money. Go with God.’ We really want to develop a relationship. We want to work with you.”The films are good enough to get where they need to on their own, says Cameron. “What we are doing is putting the icing on the cake. The talent is there. We are providing a platform to showcase it,” she says.Cameron has her own film company, Completion Films, and helped produce Spike Lee’s Bamboozled as well as Sometimes in April , an HBO film on the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. She is currently working on two films: The Fighting Prince , directed by Norman Maake, about South African boxer Arthur Mayisela, and Area Boys , a Nigerian film written by leading playwright Oladipo Agboluaje.The Africa First advisors together have a wealth of experience on making film and television productions on the continent.Givanni programmed the Toronto International Film Festival’s Planet Africa series for four years. Another advisor, Clarence Hamilton, is production head at the South African National Film and Video Foundation. Hamilton was head writer of the first season of children’s TV series Takalani Sesame. He was co-creator of the HIV drama Gaz’lam and head writer for Soul Buddyz . Other advisors include Mahen Bonetti, the director of the African Film Festival; journalist and documentary filmmaker Jihan El-Tahiri; Pedro Pimenta, manager of training programmes throughout South Africa; and Keith Shiri, director of the Africa at the Pictures film festival in the UK.The five winning Africa First filmmakers from 2009 are: Stephen Abbott (South Africa), Matt Bishanga (Uganda), Daouda Coulibaly (Mali), Matthew Jankes (also South Africa) and Rungano Nyoni (Zambia). Their films are now being made and should be ready for screening later this year. The round for this year’s submissions will open in May or June.

Geocachers were challenged to explore benchmarking by taking a selfie with a NCEES trackable at a NGS marker. The winning photographer would receive a trip for two to the 2015 Geocaching Block Party in Seattle.As a twist of geocaching fate would have it, the winning photographer was Lieutenant Bob Cizaukas (Username: cizzors). Bob happens to be the geocacher who made Geocaching in Space possible. In 2013, 11 trackables hitched a ride to the International Space Station with Astronaut Rick Mastracchio. Bob convinced Mastracchio to take the trackables into space with him on Expedition 38. He also made this an interactive experience for elementary school students in Connecticut by giving each trackable to a school so that students could follow its adventure into space.Thanks to NCEES, Bob will now be bringing one of the trackables that made the voyage to space to Geocaching Block Party for other geocachers to enjoy! We asked him to tell us about his experience with #PSNoBoundaries.How long have you been geocaching? I started geocaching with my wife, Jennifer, my daughter Karisa and my son Ethan (little cizzors) in November 2010.Why did you start geocaching?I geocache with my family and friends to exercise and be adventurous. My wife likes hiking, but I seemed to enjoy hiking more with the challenge of finding a cache. We also really enjoy the great places we have discovered and the friends we have made through geocaching.I learned about geocaching through a chance conversation with a hot air balloon pilot about navigation. The pilot, while explaining how her GPS helps guide her hot air balloon, mentioned that she also uses the GPS for geocaching which intrigued me and so it began. I don’t recall her name and never saw her again after that 30 minute conversation in November 2010.Tell us about the NCEES #PSNoBoundaries winning photo!Blooper photo #1!My family had never found a benchmark before so we were excited about finding one and taking a picture. We noticed there was one on the Thomaston, CT Police Department, not far from our home. We activated our new trackable, attached a bicycle reflector (since we have seen surveyors use reflectors) and headed out. My daughter Karisa, age 7, my son Ethan, age 10 and our dog Pluto, age 7 months, headed out in our geomobile to search for the benchmark. We found it and intended on getting Pluto in the photo but he wouldn’t stay still and didn’t make it into the final submission. We took the photo and a couple months later we found out we won!The picture was of NCEES surveyor TB (TB726TN) at Benchmark LX0604.Blooper photo #2! Pluto did not make the final cut.What was the first thing you did when you learned you won tickets to Geocaching Block Party?When I found out I won, I called my wife at work and told her the exciting news. I have always wanted to go to the Geocaching Block Party but have not had the opportunity.What is the #1 thing you are excited for at Block Party?I am most excited to be able to show everyone attending my Geocaching in Space bug (TB5JJN1) and the ISS geocache log.What tip would you share with new players who want to start having fun with trackables?My advice to new geocachers wanting to have fun with trackables is to do your best to log them and drop them into another cache as soon as possible. I also like to post a picture when possible. Attending geocaching events and asking questions to other cachers is how I found the best information about trackables.We also asked Bob to take the What’s Your Geocaching Road Trip ‘15 Vehicle? quiz. His result was “Station Wagon.” (Although we’re guessing he’ll be taking an airplane to Block Party!)The last Geocaching Block Party will be Saturday, August 15. Explore new geocaching adventures, celebrate 15 years of geocaching, and hang out with nearly 3000 of your new best friends. There will be plenty of fun events, food trucks, interactive exhibits and vendors. Plus, it’s a great way to earn the Meet Your Road Trip Crew souvenir. Mark your Will Attend here.

Impressive footage from both the Blackmagic 4K Production Camera and Panasonic Lumix GH4 are exciting for cinematographers and indie filmmakers.The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K and the Panasonic Lumix GH4 (yet to be released) are creating quite a buzz in the indie-filmmaking community. But how do they compare to each other? In the following article we take a look at test footage and differences between these two cameras.The Blackmagic Production Camera 4KThe highly anticipated Blackmagic 4K Production Camera offers the sleek design of the original BMCC with 4K resolution. Early test footage shows that the quality is every bit as beautiful as it’s predecessor.The camera, which just started shipping, has been plagued with release delays over the past year. Blackmagic CEO Grant Petty says that the delay is caused because the company needed to “replace a bunch of the software in the camera that handles the sensor calibration and image processing“. Blackmagic has recently dropped the price of the cam $1,000 (now only $3,000), making it the cheapest 4K production camera. That is until the GH4 is released…The Panasonic Lumix GH4Unlike the BMCC, the mirrorless GH4 doubles as a still photography camera when it’s not taking 4K footage. With an updated sensor and 4K compatibility, the GH4 offers DSLR lovers a camera for the modern age. Preliminary footage of the GH4 shows it’s capability and we are impressed.The GH4 is not quite as cinematic as the BMCC, partly due to it’s MOV compression, as opposed to BMCC’s RAW recording. That being said it is still producing high quality footage that rivals even the most state-of-the-art DSLRs (we’re looking at you Canon Mark III). Early speculation has the GH4 priced at $1,500 but Panasonic has not released any details regarding the release.What do you think of the test footage? Do you think that the GH4 is a real contender or is the Blackmagic far superior?

Upon arriving at the elephant sanctuary in Johannesburg, South Africa, I was immediately informed of the ground rules.The first rule is to understand that the elephants that I was about to interact with we’re not tame animals. They’re not domesticated, and they aren’t “pet” elephants. These elephants have only been trained, not tamed. The training is pretty limited, and the elephants, hopefully, will someday be returned to the wild (where they belong).The second rule is to understand the foundation on which the relationship between man and elephant is based: food.When I arrived at the sanctuary, one big, young, male elephant was running around trying to break the fence surrounding him and three other elephants. I asked the guide what he was doing. The guide said, “He’s hungry. Elephants are always hungry.” It’s true, too. Elephants eat about 400 pounds of vegetation daily.Here’s the rule: As long as you are giving the elephant food, you can approach and touch the elephant. But as soon as there is no more food, the relationship has ended, and you must turn and walk away. If you don’t walk away, it’s likely that the elephant will smack you with his big trunk–something you may or may not survive (and you sign a release agreeing to this potentially very serious negative outcome).The reasons the elephant in the picture above, Kumba, is tolerating me touching her is because she is being bribed by her handlers with food. As long as there is food, we’re all good. But if the food wasn’t there, I wouldn’t likely be there either. And that’s how it goes with elephants.As you might expect, there’s analogy to sales relationships here. As long as you are feeding your elephant what it values, you have a relationship. That value is the foundation of your relationship. No more value, no more relationship. And I would add no new value, no relationship. Once you run out of value you can expect your elephant to take it’s big, muscular trunk and smack you out of the way.QuestionsWhat is the foundation the relationship you have with your elephants?How do you ensure that you continually meet their enormous demands?

Hiralal Solanki is waiting for the backwaters in the swelling Narmada to recede so that he could return home. Cooped up in a 10 feet-by-10 tin shelter at a relief camp with two younger brothers, a sister-in-law, and an assortment of recovered household items stacked around, he refuses to leave for Gujarat, where his parents were resettled more than two decades ago. Just eight, and a minor, in 1994, when his parents were given a five-acre plot in Panchmahal district, 192 km away, he and his siblings were left behind in the care of relatives. Today, leaving behind two shops and a ramshackle hut at Kotda village in Madhya Pradesh’s Dhar district that faces submersion, the families of Mr. Solanki and 130 others have shifted to the camp set up by the Narmada Valley Development Authority (NVDA) in the neighbouring Nisarpur, which too is facing submergence. Uncertainty remains As Gujarat continues to raise storage at the Sardar Sarovar Dam at a menacing pace, those residing in 178 affected upstream villages of Madhya Pradesh stare at uncertainty. On Saturday, the level in the dam had risen to 135.9 metres, well above the 135 metres that was to be filled by the end of this month as per the schedule prescribed by the Narmada Control Authority (NCA).Now, Mr. Solanki sits on the street selling pans, made possible with the help of some capital from a camp neighbour, who lent ₹20,000 at 5% interest. “I make just ₹50-60 a day now. Previously, it was ₹1,500,” he said. “Back at the village, the same friend lent us money at no interest.”“The allotted land is arid and we’re treated like outsiders in Gujarat,” said Mr. Solanki’s mother Durga Bai, who has come on a visit to care for her youngest son, who is suffering from typhoid. “We don’t know their language, and are often not allowed to pass through their fields.”Nowhere to go Rajesh Bhagole, 29, an agricultural labourer who shifted with his wife to the camp on July 12 from Nisarpur, said, “Why should we shift elsewhere when we were born here, studied here and vote here? I received no land when my father did. We have nowhere else to go. So, we’ll return to our houses when the water recedes.”As they had limited space to themselves, Mr. Bhagole explained that they had rented a room separately for ₹1,000 a month to store household goods.“Rehabilitated people continue to live in acquired houses [that the project authorities had acquired],” said Pawan Kumar Sharma, Commissioner, Narmada Valley Development Authority (NVDA). “We can’t force them to shift. Therefore, they usually return once the water recedes.”According to the NVDA, of the 37,729 project affected families in Madhya Pradesh, while 32,174 had been rehabilitated in Madhya Pradesh, 5,555 had been resettled in Gujarat. Recently, the Madhya Pradesh government admitted that more villages in the State were facing submergence than estimated earlier. At a makeshift school in the camp, 150 students shift to a neighbouring gaushala whenever the heat makes the tin classrooms with no fans, impossible to sit in. “I am waiting to return to my village school where we had fans,” said Payal Verma, who is staying at the camp alwith her parents, who are agricultural labourers, and a brother and grandparents.
