University of Limerick welcomes funding support package for higher and further…

first_imgUniversity you Limerick campus aerialsPhoto: True MediaUNIVERSITY of Limerick has today welcomed the announcement by Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris TD of a €168 million funding package for the Higher and Further Education Sector and a roadmap for the return to colleges in September.The package of supports will cover costs incurred by third-level institutions during the Covid-19 pandemic and offer guidance on students returning to campus through its Further and Higher Education Roadmap.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Welcoming the announcement, incoming Interim UL President Professor Kerstin Mey said: “Over the past five months our University has faced extraordinary challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Every aspect of our campus life was affected but as a community, we rose to the challenges.“Like all Irish universities, we are facing a funding deficit so it is very welcome news today that Minister Harris and his colleague Minister of State for Skills and Further Education Niall Collins TD have intensively engaged with the universities and established these measures of support.”UL has been at the forefront of the national response to the Coronavirus global pandemic with staff from UL’s School of Medicine, School of Allied Health, Department of Nursing and Department of Psychology joining the frontline to support the HSE.The University is currently hosting the Intermediate Care Facility at the UL Sport Arena and has secured close to €500,000 in funding for COVID-19 research projects.UL, in partnership with the HSE and Revenue, very quickly set up the UL Virtual Hub with over 50 senior health sciences students trained to engage in contact tracing which during the peak of the outbreak in Ireland were averaging around 100 calls a day.UL’s Bernal Institute, Department of Chemical Sciences and Department of Biological Sciences scientists prepared a validated lysis buffer for the HSE. The Bernal Institute is also providing technical expertise to University Hospital Limerick (UHL), while collaborating closely with HSE staff and colleagues in the pharma sector on the testing reagents critical supply chain.UL staff served on national COVID-19 advisory committees; developed and produced PPE solutions; provided daily graphic updates on national and international case numbers; compiled advice and support for autistic adults and children during the crisis; developed patient communications protocols for HSE; researched the sociological impacts for parents of the pandemic and a huge amount of research continues to support the national response to the global pandemic.At the same time, there remains the potential for significant loss of income for the University of Limerick arising from falls in international and graduate income.“Our summer income has been wiped out and the income from on-campus student residences next year has yet to be determined with substantial reliance still on online delivery. We must also invest further in technology including lecture capture, online resilience, online communications capability and the virtual learning and student support environments to enhance online delivery and this package will help us to do so,” said Professor Mey.UL looks forward to welcoming its students back to campus and the new academic year commences for all students on September 28. Teaching will be delivered via blended learning both online and face-to-face on campus. Each year cohort will have scheduled on campus face-to-face teaching as well as online and interactive facilitation of learning.UL has also committed to its international students that they are welcome to travel to the campus to commence their programmes of study in September and they will be facilitated and supported when self-isolating for 14 days. UL’s international cohort of students broaden the learning experience of all student, enrich campus life and bring an economic injection estimated in excess of €21 million to the region each year.

A Christmas Gift 38 Years in the Making

first_imgBy Rick GeffkenFrank Capra’s “It’s a Wonderful Life” is about George Bailey and his Christmas angel Clarence. “The Gift of the Magi” is an O. Henry story about the selfless exchanges of a husband and wife. A recent uncommon gift of love and remembrance in our Two River area by a real married couple virtually defines the Christmas spirit we all aspire to.When Asa Sweeney was a young Cub Scout attending Middletown’s River Plaza School, David Barrett was one of his boyhood pals. Not best friends exactly, but as close as two young boys could be. “We were like the Little Rascals,” he recalls.Like most 1970’s kids growing up in River Plaza, the boys spent their free time on the Swimming River crabbing, snapper fishing and swimming. In cooler seasons, they rode their bicycles everywhere, pretended to be explorers in the woods around town, and probably teased their fair share of little girls.When school let out in June 1978, 12-year-old Asa spent the summer at home on Navesink River Road. David’s parents were separated; he went off to visit his mother in Texas. David Barrett never returned to River Plaza School that fall.Asa Sweeney: “Things were different back then. All I remember is coming to school in September and our teacher made an announcement: ‘David Barrett is not coming back. He died in Texas. Everyone please open their books.’ There were no grief counselors at that time. But we all knew what happened.”Sweeney grew up and went about his life. He married, had children, and was a boat dealer in Keyport for several years. He lost that business during the last recession when people’s recreational money went wanting.The third grade class at River Plaza School in Middletown during the 1973-74 school year. David Barrett is standing in the middle row, third from the left. His pal Asa Sweeney, in a Cub Scout uniform, stands right next to him. Photo courtesy Asa SweeneyNow 52 and a small business owner, Sweeney tells it this way: “In the fall this year, I went to Fair View Cemetery in Middletown a couple of times looking for my grandmother Anna Kennedy’s grave, but I couldn’t find it. So I thought I’d go to the office and get a map to help me. As I was talking to the woman there, she started writing down where my grandmother was, my aunt was, a friend was. Then I remembered David Barrett, who I used to ride bikes with around here. She gave me his location too.”Scuffling around the gentle cemetery hills, Sweeney couldn’t find where Barrett was buried. The office had no record of a tombstone for Sweeney’s grammar school buddy. He was shocked. “How could he not have a tombstone?” It bothered him, although he’s quick to add “I’m not judging.”A few days later, Sweeney returned to the cemetery office and asked if he could buy a tombstone for David. He was politely informed that he’d have to obtain the permission of the grave owners, listed as his friend’s grandparents from Little Silver. Sweeney discovered they had moved to North Carolina, but had passed away. A literal dead end. Sweeney, undaunted, began following a lead for David’s father in Arizona, but the elder Barrett had also died in the intervening years. He had no idea where in Texas his friend’s mother might have lived, her last name, or if she was even alive anymore. His frustration led to resolve.Asa Sweeney gets serious as he remembers. “David’s parents were never married, it was a broken family right from the start. When he went to see his Mom in Texas over the summer, he and another kid found a shotgun in the house, were playing around and David was accidentally shot in the face and killed.”Sweeney went back to the Fair View Cemetery staff with a proposition. “You know what? My friend has been out there for 38 years, and I want to give him a tombstone.” In early September, Sweeney put up a Facebook notice asking if anyone wanted to contribute toward a grave marker. Seven or eight people from River Plaza School responded with money, and a few others chipped in, too.With about $1,200 in donations, Sweeney went to Uras Monuments in Middletown and was quoted $2,000 for an engraved granite stone. Here’s where this story takes a George Bailey turn.Asa and Karen Sweeney have three sons, two are currently Boy Scouts, and the other is a college student in Boston. They have lots of expenses now and more coming up in the next several years. They talked over what to do about David Barrett’s unmarked grave. This ordinary middle class couple, faced with as many bills as their Toms River neighbors, decided to kick in the remaining $800 themselves for the grave marker. (Pause here while we contemplate this extraordinary generosity.)When asked about his motivations, Sweeney grew silent, his rationale apparently never contemplated. Looking away for several seconds, eyes lowered, he reluctantly whispered, “I just thought it was the thing to do.” (Second pause.)Ill at ease, Sweeney quickly changed the subject to the grave marker with David’s image. Sweeney got it from their third grade class picture, which his 81-year-old mother kept all these years. He was surprised to see himself standing right next to David Barrett in 1973.Sweeny purchased an expensive gravestone this December, and put it on an empty plot of grass for a friend he hadn’t seen in 38 years. A friend he has only a few personal stories about, a boy who was in and out of his life before either of them could understand what life is about.Bill Rockafellow, superintendent of the Fair View Cemetery marveled as he said “It’s very unusual for a nonfamily member to put up a gravestone; maybe it’s happened twice in 10 years that I can remember. As far as David Barrett’s gravesite is concerned, I’ve been here for 35 years and I’ve never seen anybody over there.”Sweeney’s wife, Karen, who never knew David Barrett, provided the poetic inscription gracing his tombstone:No Farewell Words Were Spoken, No Time to Say Goodbye,You Were Gone Before We Knew It, And Only God Knows Why.Forever Young, Forever in Our Hearts.Your Fellow River Plaza ClassmatesMerry Christmas, Asa, Merry Christmas. Somewhere a bell is ringing.last_img read more

Shoprite Now Open in Shrewsbury

first_imgBy Christina Johnson |SHREWSBURY ­­– By 11 a.m. Wednesday on its first day of business, more than 1,000 customers were inside the brand new ShopRite at 1151 Shrewsbury Ave., moving slowly down the aisles of precisely arranged products, reading labels, checking prices and taking it all in.Throughout the 80,000-square-foot store, smartly uniformed store employees in black aprons stood outside their immaculate stations, greeting customers or offering samples. Saker ShopRite executives in suits buzzed through the aisles, chatting with staff and shaking hands with customers. The mood was festive, like a holiday.“It’s awesome. It’s amazing. I’m like, a little overwhelmed,” said Amy Montano of Little Silver, who was in the meat aisle, picking out Thanksgiving dinner items for her family of three with the help of a yellow store directory handout. Typically, the real estate professional will drive 20 minutes to Wegmans and Costco in Ocean Township to do the family shopping. But ShopRite is only 10 minutes from her home. She was impressed. “It’s just beautiful and everything looks great.”Convenience, quality, freshness and the overall customer experience are some of the ingredients in Richard Saker’s recipe for success. Saker, of Middletown, is president and CEO of Saker ShopRites, which continues to be guided by the family’s fifth generation of grocers. Of his 32 stores, 25 of have the “World Class” label for their amenities, extensive size and depth of offerings. The Shrewsbury store is a World Class store.Customers who know the Hazlet, Middletown and Aberdeen stores will feel at home in Shrewsbury. The layout of the grocery, produce, meat and seafood sections is familiar. But the Shrewsbury store stands out for its vast hot food and deli provisions selection, a smorgasbord of hundreds of prepared entrees from both the World Class Kitchens and Dearborn Farms brands that seems to go on and on from behind a long, gleaming 30-foot glass case, a feast for the eyes.Shrewsbury ShopRite meat manager Justin Hager shows off the premium, custom cut meat selection. Photo by Christina Johnson“Grab and go” foods prepared by ShopRite chefs aimed to appeal to busy working moms and dads who want to pick up a home-cooked meal to share together at night, is a sophisticated experience in Shrewsbury. “If you see a product with World Class Kitchens on it, we’re making that here in New Jersey, with good union labor. All our products are handmade and the vast majority of our products are 100 percent natural,” said Saker. “Which is something that is quite amazing, because there’s nobody else who does that. Everything is made fresh and everything is made locally.”Customers can buy homemade food in packages right in the refrigerated aisles, or they can be served behind the glass by an employee who will help a customer build an $8 or $9 meal with an entrée and two sides from the colorful selection.In the fresh pasta aisle, ShopRite’s Richard Saker shows beef ravioli made from his wife Laura’s recipe. Photo by Christina JohnsonThe Shrewsbury store also features a new fresh pasta operation where customers can buy packaged pasta products like angel hair, macaroni and ravioli produced on the premises. Kobe beef, a premium product not formally found in supermarkets, also gets star billing in Shrewsbury, where customers can order Kobe beef burgers, Kobe roast beef, Kobe corned beef and Kobe pastrami. These two new features will be rolling out to other ShopRite stores in the future.All of this is offered under video screens that show mesmerizing kitchen videos from ShopRite chefs slicing and dicing, sautéing and baking, or piping icing into flower shapes onto beautiful little cakes for the boutique patisserie. “We import some of the finest ingredients from all over the world,” including chocolate from Belgium, said Saker. “We are just a cut above any bakery. Nobody does anything like we do.”The meat section of the store is also something special in Shrewsbury. Customers can regularly find custom cuts of USDA Prime beef and Kobe beef, as well as specialties like pork crown roast and beef bracciole. Or they can request something different from the butcher behind the counter.The store, which employs 300 full- and part-time workers, has a local focus. Customers can find Booskerdoo Coffee, roasted in Monmouth County; Glenda’s Kitchen gluten-free, gourmet cookies, which are baked nearby in Atlantic Highlands; and the Grown in Monmouth branded plants provided by local farms like Louis Davino Greenhouses.There is also a pharmacy, a cafe, a full-service catering department and a store nutrition expert and nutrition center.The store is open 6 a.m. to midnight every day. The company offers a “ShopRite from Home” app with pick up from reserved parking spots, and will offer home delivery.ShopRite from home is a service that allows customers to place orders for pickup at a reserved section of the parking lot. The supermarket will offer home delivery. Photo courtesy ShopRite“Customers are excited, it’s a ‘wow,’ ” said Shrewsbury ShopRite store manager Mike Egan. “They’ve been waiting a while for ShopRite to come back to Shrewsbury,” he said, referring to a store that existed in the 1970s.Shrewsbury ShopRite store manager Mike Egan at the entrance of the store, where “Shrewsbury NJ” spelled out in oversized Scrabble tiles welcomes customers.
