first_imgThe Disco Biscuits have announced their plans for the approaching New Year. On December 28th through 31st, the jamtronica pioneers will return “home” for a four-night run at the Fillmore Philadelphia.Last year, The Disco Biscuits celebrated New Year’s Eve at New York City’s PlayStation Theater following the previous year’s move to The Tabernacle in Atlanta, Georgia. Having only opened in October of 2015, The Fillmore Philadelphia is quickly becoming a favorite of the 23-year-old band and is the home to some of their greatest jams. In April, the venue even honored the band with a banner at the end of a three-night 4/20 run, celebrating the fact that they’ve played the venue the most out of any other act, with nine plays under their belt.Four-day passes are available via the run’s pre-sale, which starts today, and will also be available during the general on sale, which starts this Friday. Single day tickets will also be available starting Friday.

Teenage Brains

first_imgThink back to your teenage years. Did you feel awkward, especially given the changes with your body and emotions? Today’s teens are no different. They are quiet, forgetful and sometimes even surly. They consume large amounts of food and sleep all the time. If I sound like I know them well, I do. I have two teenagers in my home and I have to remind myself daily that they are not little adults. They are experiencing monumental changes that affect their interactions.The physical changes are obvious. They gain weight and seem to be sprouting up at superhuman rates.Just like their bodies, teenagers’ brains are also still under construction and not fully developed. In fact, several studies indicate that teenagers’ brains “are not fully developed until late in adolescence.” The neurons are literally not connecting. This under-construction phase is a challenging time for teens and sometimes the entire family. Both of my teens make decisions that are not based on logic, experience or common sense. Mind you, they are not bad decisions, just not well thought out.Now that we are clear about what is going on, let’s look at how we can assist with this transition into adulthood.Help them to make healthy choices about the foods they eat. Anyone who has been in contact with a teenage boy knows the struggle of keeping them full. Foods with more fiber keep them full longer. Make sure they keep the sweet foods and carbs, including drinks, chips, crackers, pasta and bread, to a minimum, as this can affect acne. Suggest calcium-rich foods, like collard greens, cheese, yogurt and fortified cereal, to support strong bones. Building strong bones now can prevent bone loss later in life and decreases the chances of osteoporosis. Currently, I buy two gallons of milk per week and a large box of fortified cereal. They are happy and so am I.Ensure that they are getting enough sleep. More sleep is required to do the heavy lifting of adolescence. Research suggests teenagers need an average of nine-and-a-half hours of sleep.Finally, keep trying. A good friend advised me to continue to plant the seeds with my teenagers. She insists that one day the seeds will take root and grow.I had to pause and reflect on the number of times my own great-aunt told me the same things over and over. As much as I hate to admit it, I remember the signs of adolescence I now see in my own son and daughter.To all of us helping teenagers make it to young adulthood, take a deep breath, keep up the good work and remember, one day, the seed will take root and the plant will grow.last_img read more

Reinforce employees’ understanding of the credit union difference

first_imgBuilding awareness of credit unions starts with regularly educating your employees about the movement’s principles and mission, says Christopher Morris, communications director for the National Credit Union Foundation.With 71% of young adults ages 18-24 professing little or no knowledge about credit unions, it’s not enough to offer new hires an overview at orientation and then count on the culture of your organization to offer reminders, Morris told a roomful of credit union training and development professionals at CUNA’s Experience Learning Live! in Las Vegas.Rather, they should heed the advice of credit union pioneer Edward Filene: “Keep purpose constant.”“Explaining the benefits of credit unions’ cooperative structure is critical to delivering high-level member service,” Morris says.That’s because front-line staff—the segment which most often deals with members—generally is the least equipped to answer direct questions from members about the credit union difference, or spot opportunities to deliver that message. continue reading » 20SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
