Nonprofit seeks volunteer host families for foreign exchange students before August 15.
Center for Cultural Interchange (CCI), the well-respected, nonprofit student exchange organization, seeks volunteer host families to host exchange students for the 2011-12 school year. Each year, CCI provides over 1000 exchange students from over 50 countries the opportunity to study in local public high schools for a five-month semester or a 10-month Academic High School Year.
“Host families make all of the difference,” said Allison Graham, Outreach and Training manager.  “They influence a young adult’s life, changing world views and making dreams come true. When the family is so willing to give, they have just as many rewarding and enriching experiences as the student.”

Fairway Market Cancels Fireman Cook-Off Scheduled For Tomorrow, Sunday August 14


Dear Mel,
After several hours of debate, checking, and rechecking the weather forecast in Paramus, we have decided that it is best to CANCEL the Firefighter Cook-Off event that was scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, August 14 at Fairway Market Paramus due to the significant chance of rain.

This was a very difficult call to make as the firefighter Cook-Off events are something that Fairway truly loves and passionately supports, however we believe it is the most prudent decision for the safety of the participants and attendees.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Sincerely,
The Fairway Market Team

A Woman’s Personal Safety Isn’t a Statistic By Alan Jacobson and Mark Safarik


A toddler awakens with a fever, so his mother drives to the store for a bottle of Children’s Motrin. It’s only 10pm and she lives in a well-regarded middle class neighborhood, so it’s not a big deal. Right?

According to the FBI Uniform Crime Report (UCR), violent crime in America has trended down 1.5% in the past five years. That’s good news, for sure. But what does it really mean for the average woman going about her daily life? There’s no argument that a reduction in violent crime is desirable. Fewer assaults, rapes, and murders is undeniably significant, but the UCR and other such metrics are statistics, trends, and percentages. For an individual going to work, the mall or a friend’s house, there is little direct correlation with such averages. For a woman, dangers and risks abound, and knowing that there’s been a 4.4% year-over-year reduction in violent crime the past two years does not amount to much when she’s at the wrong end of a sexual assault—or worse, murder. In short, criminals don’t read these reports. If a sexual predator sees a woman who interests him and he perceives that the risk for him is minimal because she is not taking steps to protect herself, she will be victimized.

  Maybe you can't buy love, but you can buy beauty. And in automotive flesh, beauty runs about a quarter of a million dollars for the 2011 Aston Martin Rapide Luxe.  The 470-horsepower, V-12 Rapide has one of those designs that causes people to stop, stare and buy a lottery ticket. My wife took one look at it parked in the driveway and said she had the urge to take off her clothes and lie naked on the hood. That's another reason men buy these cars.

AVX Develops Ultra-low Profile LED Lighting Connectors for Fluorescent Light Retrofit & Replacement


AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has developed two new series of connectors for LED lighting systems that maintain the same luminosity and light intensity as florescent strip lights.  The standard length of most fluorescent lights is 1.2m, and currently it is impossible to reflow-mount LEDs on such a long printed circuit board placed in the fitting.  As a result, the lighting strip is divided into shorter lengths joined by connectors.  AVX's new 9608 Series LED lighting connector and 9609 Series LED backlight connectors feature the lowest profile in the industry at 1.4mm, which minimizes the spacing between PCBs and allows for even light distribution.
