Pathway Program Gives Mountain House High School (MHHS) Students Two Years of College by the Time They Graduate

Associate of Science (AS) Degree and Career Training Program for MHHS Students Is the Joint Creation of Lammersville Unified School District (LUSD) and San Joaquin Delta College Mountain House Campus.

Mountain House, CA, USA — The graduating class of 2021 could be facing tuition costs as high as $339,000 for four years of higher education. However, thanks to the Early College Pathway Program, some graduates of Mountain House High School (MHHS) will have a leg up on college since they will have both a high school diploma and an Associate of Science (AS) degree, while others will graduate with the credentials they need to begin a career. The Pathway Program, developed in conjunction with San Joaquin Delta College Mountain House Campus, the gives high school students access to college classes so they can acquire two or more years of college credit upon graduation.

The Pathway Program was co-created by the Lammersville Unified School District, San Joaquin Delta College Mountain House Campus. MHHS first opened its doors in fall 2014, and the Pathway Program began spring 2016, with 38 students. Since then, two more cohorts have been added, with plans to expand to 150 students within two years. The first cohort graduates in May 2019 with an Associate of Science degree and a high school diploma. Students can apply to the Pathway Program as high school freshmen and commit to two classes per semester in order to earn their AS degree.

“Gerry was instrumental in bringing the Delta College Mountain House Campus to Mountain House and in helping us create the Pathway Program,” said Dr. Jessie Garza-Roderick, Associate Dean of San Joaquin Delta College Mountain House Campus. “This is the kind of program that enriches both the community and the college, promoting diversity in education at the same time it gives high school students an opportunity to earn their AS degree.”

Any student interested in San Joaquin Delta College Mountain House Campus courses can apply for admissions. What makes the program successful is the proximity of MHHS to the Delta College Mountain House campus. Pathway Program classes are incorporated into the high school curriculum and students attend college classes after school hours on the college campus.

“Being an exurb of Silicon Valley, parents are focused on preparing their kids for college, but the Pathway Program also provides vocational training in fields such as computer networking,” added Dr. Kirk Nicholas, Superintendent of the Lammersville USD. “Our high school is ranked as one of the top 100 high schools in California partly because our goal is to meet the educational needs of all students, including those who are college bound and those seeking career training. The Pathway Program is just one way we help our students become more competitive in applying for university admissions.

“Families move to Mountain House because it’s one of the most affordable well designed communities in the East San Francisco Bay area market, and because of the quality of education,” said Gerry Kamilos, CEO of Kamilos Companies. “Part of my vision for Mountain House has always been to offer local retail, recreation facilities, and one of the best school systems in the State, which includes the partnership between K-12 and the community college. With the support of San Joaquin Delta College Mountain House Campus, we are able help Mountain House High School students head start on their education. These types of community enrichment programs are what make Mountain House attractive to young professionals and families.”

According to CollegeData.com, the average cost of an in-state public college is $24,610 per year and the average cost of a private college is $49,320. Even within the state of California, state university costs are $22,000 per year and higher. At a cost of $46 per unit, parents of Pathway Program students can save $25,000 or more of college fees.

San Joaquin Delta College established its Mountain House Campus in July 2009 with the help of a $14 million advanced payment provided by Kamilos Companies. As a result, students are able to attend classes locally, without having to commute to Livermore or Stockton. Having the college as a local resource also is attracting the attention of area businesses. Tesla, for example, recently established a plant in Livermore and is interested in working with the Mountain House Campus.

“Questionable Minds,” a New Book: Conversations with Writers about Writing

OTTAWA, Ontario CANADA, 2017-Feb-15 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — The mind of a writer is a mysterious place. In Questionable Minds: conversations with writers, social psychologist dr george pollard gives a guided tour of the creative mental landscape of writers. In this unique collection of conversations, dr pollard explores the making of a fictional story or a stand-up comedy routine.

If you’re curious how your favourite novel or stand-up comedy routine comes into being, Questionable Minds helps you find out. This new book helps answer many questions. Where do the ideas come from? How do authors develop their characters? What is the secret of writing a successful stand-up comedy routine?

In this eclectic view of the workings of the imagination; dr pollard has assembled a remarkable panel of writers, covering a wide of range of literature. The conversations, in this collection, are with writers of thrillers, satire and westerns, as well as stand-up comedy.

Alessandra Torre tells gripping tales she claims are erotica. Peter Mehlman, a pillar of Seinfeld, has an idiosyncratically ironic eye and smooth, easy writing style. Chris Allen trades in thrillers that may contain more than a hint of truth.

Bruce Holbert is the thriftiest of writers, building finely honed sentences. Victoria Patterson artfully skewers the upper class, of Orange County, California. Steve Berry creates intricate mysteries against a backdrop of notional history. J Scott Fuqua tells tales with words and illustrations that resurrect a bygone era.

Ann Lewis Hamilton writes serious stories in a shrewdly droll style. Gabe Abelson is the A-list writer of late-night television talk show monologues. Jay Bonansinga writes The Walking Dead novels.

What inspires these writers? How do they develop stories or comedy? Why must they write?

To a one, they agree writing is sweating blood that shows up as squiggles on a page or pixels on an e-reader. Writing fiction or stand-up comedy is not for the easily distracted, the indolent or faint of heart. Writers must be eager to chase their characters and stories down the rabbit hole.

Questionable Minds is notable because of the depth and clarity of the insights found in the conversations. The book exhibits a unique intimacy; there’s no sense of canned answers to a list of prepared questions. Instead these conversations move effortlessly, following lines of curiosity and interest, while drawing out a wealth of detail.

Every writer dr pollard talks with has a different story to tell. Each has his or her own sources of inspiration. Their routines are personal; sometimes fitting writing around the rest of their lives or, for a few, squeezing in time for family, if they can drag themselves away from writing.

It is notable how willingly, candid and freely the writers talk. They discuss in detail the motivations that drive them to write. For some it’s enthusiasm; others want to explore their own lives and, perhaps, reframe them in a different context; still others want to discover what happens to their characters, as the story unfolds and still others simply enjoy the act of writing. Questionable Minds is an inside view of some highly distinctive minds, which are absorbing places to explore.

Although dr pollard explores similar themes with each writer, the conversations never become repetitive. Each writer is too distinctive a personality; each brings something fresh to the conversations and our understanding of why writers write. If you wonder how writers do what they do, this book will show you that it’s much more complicated and enthralling than you may imagine; it will improve your reading experience, too.

Questionable Minds is available through Amazon, in paperback and eBook editions at https://www.amazon.com/Questionable-Minds-Conversations-george-pollard. Review copies, in MOBI format, are available from the author at drgeorgep@questionableminds.com. For more information on Questionable Minds, visit the web site http://questionableminds.com or e-mail, as you wish, perhaps to arrange an interview with dr pollard.

About the Author
dr george pollard is a sociometrician and social psychologist at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. His teaching and research interests include the process, practise and effects of writing as an act of fulfilling the pop culture and entertainment need of society as well as media and truth.

The Rezvan Foundation for Excellence holds Fundraising Gala to honor a Legacy of determination and transformation and the value of Education

When it comes to legacies, the one left by Dr. Ahmad Rezvan resonates as one of the most enduring and heartwarming of all.

Salinas, CA, November 29, 2016 – Growing up in Iran, young Ahmad faced tremendous obstacles — abject poverty and the devastating loss of his father when he was just 14 years old. Despite this, and while providing for his grief-stricken family, Ahmad stunned his small town by secretly putting himself through school, winning admission to the most prestigious university in Iran, and eventually earning a medical degree. Ahmad needed equal parts excellence and determination to transform his life — and the lives of his family.

To honor the legacy of his late father, Dr. Ehsan Rezvan founded the Rezvan Foundation for Excellence, a nonprofit that supports students who share the same incredible combination of strengths that eventually brought the senior Dr. Rezvan to America with his family.

The mission of the Rezvan Foundation is to support the educational pursuits of exceptionally talented young students who have shown a determination to succeed, despite the crippling loss of one or more parent, or removal from their parents’ home.

It is the hope of the foundation that Rezvan scholars will continue to “pay it forward” and keep alive the generous spirit of Dr. Ahmad Rezvan and his family for generations to come.

To celebrate this lasting legacy, and to help fund future scholarships, the Rezvan Foundation for Excellence is holding its first-ever Fundraising Gala on Feb. 4, 2017, at the Sofitel Hotel in Redwood City.

Tickets to the gala are $250, and are tax-deductible (Tax ID No.: 81-0810674). Payment can be made by check (payable to The Rezvan Foundation) or credit card (Visa, MC, Discover or AmEx). Please mail or fax the completed form with check or complete credit card information to: The Rezvan Foundation for Excellence 7888 Wren Ave., #B-120, Gilroy, CA 95020. Phone: (818) 298-8316.

ThingLink Launches Virtual Reality Lessons App for Education

Interactive media platform ThingLink has launched its first virtual reality content app called VR Lessons. The app is designed for elementary school students, their teachers and parents.

Palo Alto, CA, USA — Interactive media platform ThingLink (http://www.thinglink.com) has launched its first virtual reality content app called VR Lessons. The app is designed for elementary school students, their teachers and parents.

VR Lessons by ThingLink is a collection of high quality, interactive, 360° image and video journeys on a variety of topics including science, language, and arts. The first stories take students to visit different kinds of ecosystems from the French Alps to a jungle in the archipelago of northern Australia. As students turn their heads to look around, they can spot details and unlock additional information of each habitat in a narrated virtual reality environment.

“Virtual reality can take students to places they could only dream of visiting, but it is also an open canvas for students to imagine and build new worlds and experiences. We are making it possible for schools to use virtual reality as an engaging learning platform,” says ThingLink’s founder and CEO Ulla Engestrom.

VR Lessons by ThingLink utilizes three key feature additions to ThingLink’s core product, the image editor: audio annotations, background audio for 360° images, and the ability to connect several 360° images or videos into a one immersive story.

“Audio annotations work wonderfully in a mobile VR environment, adding depth to the overall experience of the space. For example, in VR Lessons we added the sound of the wind in the background of an image from the Norwegian tundra, and an owl howling in the image of a cold winter forest in Finland. In annotations we are using both human and computer voiced files, and students can vote which voice they like the best,” says Engestrom.

The first VR lessons have been created by ThingLink’s own content team using the company’s new VR editor. Later, educators from around the world will be able to publish their virtual reality lessons in ThingLink’s VR Lessons app.

About ThingLink
ThingLink, founded in 2010, is an interactive media platform that empowers online publishers to create more engaging content by adding rich media links to photos, videos and virtual reality. With over 3 million content creators, ThingLink has become the most popular cross-platform solution and creative community for interactive images and videos.

Connecting Seniors to the Smartphone Conversation

Michael Schmitt uncovered an educational need for seniors while working for a major telecom company. Combining his current knowledge and teaching expertise, he created Learn4Fun4Ever.

St. Augustine, FL, USA — Fun, personalized Apple & Android technology lessons for seniors comes to the Jax Beaches.

Local entrepreneur Michael Schmitt uncovered an educational need while working for a major telecom company. Technology was advancing too quickly for some of his clients to keep up with. Frustrated by the way they were losing touch with loved ones, particularly grandparents with their grandchildren, they sought Michael’s help to learn how to use their Apple and Android phones.

Michael began helping his clients with everything from basic operations (how to text, make calls, email, etc.) to customized solutions for interests and/or special needs. Throughout this process, he tapped into his true passion: teaching. Prior to working in technology, he ran a business in Italy dedicated to teaching scientific and business English. Combining his current knowledge and teaching expertise, he took his services to the next level with the creation of his latest business, Learn4Fun4Ever.

“Today’s world relies on communication via the smartphone, email, text message and social media. ‘Smart devices’ connect people to ‘Their World’ in every imaginable way. In contrary, the unfortunate result is that many of our seniors are being marginalized by this technology… We, as a society, have an obligation to ensure they are included,” says Michael Schmitt, Learn4Fun4Ever founder and CEO.

Taking the unique teaching skills Michael gained from his foreign language education business, he created a revolutionary way to break down complex technology into user-friendly instruction for the novice smartphone and tablet user. Learn4Fun4Ever currently offers one-on-one personalized service by the hour or in packages of lessons. Seminars for group communities, senior centers, and by request are also available.
