Odessa College adds Fab Lab camp

first_imgLocal NewsEducation Twitter Odessa College adds Fab Lab camp Twitter By Odessa American – May 24, 2021 Pinterest WhatsApp New to the Odessa College summer camp scene this year is the Fab Academy at the Fab Lab on campus.Adriana Moreno is the director of the Fab Lab and Danielle Collins is the assistant director.The camp will be two separate weeks — June 7-10 and July 12 to 15 and hours will be 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Spots are limited and the age range is 12 to 15.“Each day, we’re actually going to be taking them through learning the equipment and also making something with the equipment. So, for example, we’ll start day one on our 3D printers. We’ll show them 3D modeling, and the process of setting up their prototype to print; Then day two, we have them working on the laser engravers. Day three would be showing them how to program circuits, as well as some soldering and then day four, we have them working on our shopbot area, which is our is a CNC router. Meanwhile, they’re working on one big project that culminates at the end of the week …,” Moreno said.The work will be displayed for a month in a gallery, either in the lab or at the Phillips Goff Gallery in Sedate Hall, Collins said.Moreno said this would give the youngsters a chance to try out some areas of interest that might be in the STEM fields.“We hope to start introducing them to coming to college and really cultivating that college-going culture is something that we hope to do with this specific age range,” Moreno added.The lab is open to not only students and employees, but the whole Permian Basin community.“So when we introduce camps to this specific age group, they start being able to really wrap their mind around some of the different technology that they might see in the workplace, eventually, once they potentially graduate, high school or college,” Moreno said. “And here they get to really have a lot of hands-on activities and learn skills that they can then use in the workplace. So we want to start them young. We really want to be a funnel for specific degree pathways, and really provide those opportunities to students,” Moreno said.She added that she and Collins enjoy working with students.“We really want this space to be not just for traditional college age, but we want we want to see little ones all the way up,” Moreno said.Moreno and Collins are a brand-new team. Moreno started Feb. 15 and Collins started March 15.Moreno said she came over from the testing center and was initially splitting her time between the Fab Lab and testing center.Collins was the lead laboratory technician at University of Texas Permian Basin over the art department. In that position, she took care of all the art labs including the woodshop, metal shop, welding, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking and many other areas.For Moreno, who has been at OC for six years, it was a chance to use her creativity and to help people bring their projects to life.“I also really enjoy interacting with people, so I was excited to work with students and the community members … to experience and interact with people on so many different levels. There’s an aspect to teaching in the Fab Lab, as well …,” she said.Collins first became familiar with the Fab Lab at its opening and worked with the previous director Cedric Bleiming.Moreno said they have their plans in place and are working on registration and getting the word out.“I’m really excited for the kids to come in excited because usually when you have kids come in for a summer camp that they’re excited about, they bring in all these new ideas and ways of looking at things and ways that they grasp concepts and apply what you teach them to what they’re doing. It’s always really fun to see their understanding of things and then how they incorporate that with the background they already have,” Collins said.The lab reopened March 15 after being closed due to COVID.

Husband charged in 1982 ax killing of wife; chief calls it one of ‘worst outcomes of domestic violence’

first_imgiStock(NEW YORK) — Decades after a young mom was found dead in her upstate New York home with an ax in her head, her husband was arrested for second-degree murder.Brighton Police Department Chief Charles David Catholdi called the crime “one of the worst outcomes of domestic violence this agency has investigated.”On the evening of Feb. 19, 1982, police responded to a 911 call from a neighbor. Officers were led to the home of James and Cathleen Krauseneck in the Rochester area, where 29-year-old Cathleen Krauseneck was found with a blow to her head from an ax, according to officials.The crime was initially reported as a burglary, authorities said. The Krausenecks’ 3-year-old daughter was home when her mother died, Catholdi said at a news conference Tuesday.Police did not elaborate on what led to James Krauseneck’s arrest decades later, but did say a “fresh look” with help from the FBI began in 2015.Catholdi stressed there’s no single piece of evidence that points to James Krauseneck, but investigators are looking at the totality of circumstances and the timeline.DNA, fingerprints and the lack there of “can speak volumes,” Catholdi said.Catholdi also said investigators reexamined the timeline which he said proves James Krauseneck “was in the home at the time of the homicide.”An indictment was unsealed Friday. Krauseneck surrendered the same day and was charged with second-degree murder by way of a grand jury indictment, authorities said.Defense attorney Michael Wolford in a statement Friday called the indictment a mistake.“Jim’s innocence was clear 37 years ago; it’s clear today,” he said. “At the end of the case, I have no doubt Jim will be vindicated.”Wolford said the Krausenecks’ daughter, who was home at the time of the alleged crime, “has never doubted her father’s innocence.”“For the last 37 years, Jim has continued to contribute to society. At the time of his wife’s murder, Jim was an economist at Kodak Company and then afterward, had a successful career and retired as vice-president of a Fortune 500 company,” Wolford said. Jim has cooperated in the investigation of his wife’s murder, repeatedly giving statements to the police, consenting to the search of his home and his car. It wasn’t until I became involved and it became evident that he was being targeted, that I placed some reasonable conditions on any further interrogation.”Krauseneck was 30 years old at the time of the alleged crime. Now 67 and living in Arizona, he was arraigned on Friday and released on $100,000 bail, Catholdi said.The trial is scheduled to begin on June 2, prosecutors said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Expert casts doubt on counselling findings

first_imgExpert casts doubt on counselling findingsOn 8 Aug 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article An expert has poured cold water on findings that as many as nine out of 10 call centres in the UK now offer stress counselling to reduce staff turnover levels.Nearly 90 per cent of the call centres that responded to a Hay Management Consultants questionnaire said they had introduced personal counselling to offset the worst effects of the work.But the head of one of the UK’s largest stress counselling services disputed the findings. “I would be extremely surprised if the figure is so high given that only 40 per cent of businesses as a whole offer anything that could be described as counselling,” said Dr Michael Reddy, chairman of Independent Counselling and Advisory Services.Counselling alone would not cut turnover rates because it did not attack the root cause of the stress, which is the type of work, he said.Hay consultant Anthony McNulty said, “Offering counselling to pressurised employees and introducing new incentives are clear signs that call centre managers are determined to tackle these problems.”last_img read more
