Help comes for those who can’t speak

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – About 20 family members fanned out in the Saugus neighborhood after the holiday dinner, anxiously searching for the autistic 5-year-old who had slipped out of his home unnoticed. Bradley’s mom sobbed hysterically, knocking on door after door, as the child slid inside a stranger’s car. The benign strangers called 911, and the boy’s frantic mom arrived in time to be chastised by sheriff’s deputies who were unprepared to consider the special circumstances they faced. “Any chance he can, if a door is open he will try to sneak by. He has no sense of fears, he will go into the middle of the street. He doesn’t know cars will hit him,” said Michelle Hopkins of her son, who runs, not walks out the door. “(The deputies) were very rude, cold, so quick to attack me, making me feel like I was a horrible mother.” Young people are not the only ones who will benefit. “The biggest problem is identifying people we come in contact with if they are unable to tell us who they are,” said sheriff’s Deputy Rick Cordero, who works at Rio Norte Junior High and Valencia High School, where students with special needs attend classes. He recalled a wandering man whose blank stare suggested Alzheimer’s disease. “He becomes your ride-along for the rest of the day until a family member calls and says `We’re missing Grandpa,”‘ Cordero said. Often relatives do not call at the first signs of flight. The registry is a resource for people with communication and behavior disorders, including and Alzheimer’s disease, oppositional defiant disorder, autism and Asperger syndrome, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Separate binders are kept for males and females and for easy retrieval ages are clustered in five-year increments. Emily Iland, who organized C.L.E.A.R., said registry programs in Pennsylvania and Florida inspired her to establish this one, but it took three years for the Sheriff’s Department to embrace the concept. The William S. Hart Union High School District, the Child and Family Center, Regional Center and the city of Santa Clarita’s Human Relations Forum are partners in the organization. The nonprofit Santa Clarita Autism-Asperger Network plans take the group, funded solely by donations, under its wing. Cordero, the Sheriff’s Department’s liaison to the group who helped devise the registry format, hopes it becomes a pilot program for the county. Wearing the helper’s shoes, he envisions what it feels like to be on the other side. “What if you lost the ability to tell someone who you are?” he said. “You could be surrounded by law enforcement, scared, (not) knowing what’s going on.” For more information, visit www.CLEARscv.org, or call Iland 297-4205. judy.orourke@dailynews.com (661) 257-5255160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Bradley foils the protection of labels on clothes: he strips naked and flees. A cadre of groups joined forces three years ago to banish scenarios like this one. The Community and Law Enforcement Aware Response program bridges the communication gap between first responders, the courts and school officials – and people with disabilities and their families. They aim to replace misunderstandings and blame with enlightened emergency response. C.L.E.A.R. established a registry Saturday where families can create profiles of loved ones and submit photos, so those who cannot speak for themselves are spoken for. Confidential forms filed with the Sheriff’s Department ask about unusual behaviors that might attract attention or endanger the person, favorite pastimes and locations, medical issues and the best way to approach and communicate with the special needs person. last_img

NPO encourages critical thinking in schools

first_imgThinking Schools SA is revolutioninsing the way children are taught in school. The NPO calls for an approach that encourages learners to think more creatively and critically. (Images and Videos: Thinking Schools SA)Schools in South Africa assess learners through a standardised testing method. But many educational professionals are calling for an overhaul of the current system. They believe the focus should rather be on a more creative approach that encourages critical thinking.One of these organisations isThinking Schools South Africa (TSSA), a non-profit organisation that helps schools to transform the way they teach and learn through encouraging learners to think critically. It is backed by one of South Africa’s most well-known education commentators, Professor Jonathan Jansen.TSSA was established in 2011 after attendees at the International Association for Cognitive Education in Southern Africa conference, held in Cape Town, agreed to start an NPO that focused on the concept of thinking schools.Rector and vice-chancellor of the University of the Free State, Professor Jonathan Jansen, supports TSSA’s approach to learning.It works with management and teachers to develop whole school thinking approaches and languages. It believes that critical thinking is not something teachers are explicitly trained to do and that the curriculum does not demand it. Instead, schools assess learners on how well they recall content. This results in graduates who are not able to think critically.TSSA implements thinking skills in schools by integrating critical thinking into the curriculum and making it a core part of how teaching and learning takes place.Watch these videos to learn more about TSSA:Learners gave their feedback on TSSA’s creative thinking approach.Director of the Discover Centre for Health Journalism at Rhodes University, Professor Harry Dugmore, tells TSSA what tertiary institutions look for in students.Have you played your part to build a better South Africa for all?

Where to Find Vintage Lenses (and Tips on How to Use Them)

first_imgLet’s take a look at some creative and affordable options into finding, purchasing, and utilizing vintage lenses in your film and video projects.I recently went to a filmmaker meetup in Austin, Texas, to chat and hang out with some other videographers, documentarians, and film professionals. I’d been several times before, but was looking forward to this meetup because many of us were planning to bring our cameras and share our go-to lenses, gear, and favorite build-outs.While it was cool to try out some different rigs and talk shop with how others had problem-solved many of the same camera and lens issues (for their unique production experiences), one of the most intriguing aspects about the event was checking out everyone’s go-to lenses.And a surprising amount of those lenses were vintage.Now, I’ve shot on vintage lenses several times. However, I don’t own any myself. But to hear everyone talk, more often than not their prize lens possession was a cool vintage lens they either found in an attic, was handed down to them by a parent or grandparent, or was purchased at a thrift shop. Several others were purchased on Ebay or online elsewhere, but the majority of the videographers had a lens with some personal significance.For those who have a vintage lens in their possession, or for those looking to get one of their own, here are some of the best places and resources for finding and purchasing vintage lenses, as well as tips on how to work with them once you have one.Mom and Pop Camera StoresIf I could suggest one place every video professional should look first for vintage lenses (or cameras, gear, etc.), it’d have to be your local mom and pop camera store. These shops are constantly in danger of closing down — many have already shut their doors for good. Not only should you do your duty to support these shops while they’re still around, they actually can be treasure troves for vintage lenses, which you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else.Sure, there might be a mark up as compared to buying online (more on that below), but you’re also getting both the convenience of walking out the door with your purchase, as well as a chance to try out your vintage lens on your camera(s) of choice. You can also spend time chatting with your resident video expert about the vintage lenses, find out more info about when and where they came from, and even advice on how this equipment might help you on your next shoot.Online and Marketplace OptionsImage by bogdandimages.Yet, for many, there are no mom and pop stores around the corner anymore. So, purchasing a vintage lens online might be your best — and only — option. There are drawbacks to finding vintage lenses online, namely that you can’t test them out on your camera or rig right away.But, if you’re patient and are willing to check back often — especially on the online auction sites — and consider making returns, you can find some quality and rare vintage lenses. Here are some different online options.Mainstream Options:EbayAmazonB&HIndustry Options:LensAuthorityKehUsedPhotoProMarketplace Options:CraigslistFacebook MarketplaceShopGoodwill Your Family’s Attic or GarageAs a result of the previously mentioned filmmaker meetup, four out of five filmmakers must apparently have filmmaking relatives with stockpiles of vintage lenses — and in some cases cameras — stashed away in attics and garages.Personally, all I’ve ever found from my parents is an old camcorder from the ‘90s, but if you do have parents or grandparents who shot amateur photography (or better yet, videography) in their youth, you might be lucky enough to stumble upon some vintage hand-me-downs that not only have their own unique bokeh and stylings, but also some cool personal stories, as well.Thrift Stores and Estate SalesImage by vetkit.Similarly, for every filmmaker heir out there, there has to be countless other attics and garages where vintage lenses are burdened upon uninterested parties, who would just as soon sell or get rid of their vintage lenses — often for bargain prices.If you consider yourself a seasoned thrifter, hitting up used goods and thrift stores can be a fun Saturday afternoon activity — diving through electronics bins looking for vintage finds. You can also make the morning rounds of estate sales at houses in affluent neighborhoods, in search of vintage lenses there, as well.Lens Mounts and AdaptersUnless you’re searching for vintage lenses to go with your vintage 16mm film camera, you’re probably going to need to research and invest in lens mounts or adapters. Here’s a good article on working with vintage lenses on modern cameras, as well as a good resource for finding the right lens adapter for you.Cover image by tomertu.For more tips and insights into working with vintage camera lenses, check out some of these articles below.Should You Use Vintage Lenses on Your Next Project?Explore the Ultimate Vintage Lens Library10 Things to Know About Shooting with Vintage LensesGear Basics: Is Filming with a Pancake Lens a Viable Option?Using Vintage Film Lenses on Micro 4/3 Cameraslast_img read more

Slain rifleman was set to join family in a fortnight

first_imgRifleman Jaidrath Singh of the Rajput Rifles Regiment, who was killed on Friday in unprovoked firing by Pakistan across the LoC in a ceasefire violation in Jammu and Kashmir, was supposed to be with his wife Mamta in two weeks.The 28-year-old solider belonged to Bhagwanpur village in Deoband area of Saharanpur district in Uttar Pradesh. The news of his martyrdom has shattered his family and fellow villagers.According to Jaidrath’s younger brother Sahdev, who is also a rifleman with the Rajput Rifles Regiment, the unit of the (RRR) in which he was posted, was transferred to Jaipur last month. But after the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims, the unit was asked to stay for another month.Passionate soldier“My brother was a passionate and brave solider who never was scared of facing biggest challenges. He had joined Army when he was just 19. So, when he was told that the transfer of his unit will be delayed by a month he happily informed us about that,” said Sahdev, who joined the RRR in 2010.Sahdev told The Hindu that when he got the call from Jammu and Kashmir that Jaidrath was no more, he could not believe it. “We are proud that son of this soil sacrificed his life to defend the country. But at the same time the pain of seeing him leave, is too much to bear for us,” he added.Rifleman Jaidrath Singh’s body is expected to reach his village on Saturday evening and he is to be cremated on Sunday. His family has demanded that Chief Minister Adityanath visit Bhagwanpur and announce development works.last_img read more
