GO-TIME: Department of Aging Improves Access Services at Senior Community Center

Posted On Oct 16 2020 by

first_img September 22, 2016 Efficiency,  GO-TIME,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Aging, in partnership with WITF, is entering its third season of an exciting initiative called MindMatters: a series of stimulating lectures presented by academics and experts on subjects ranging from history and current events, to politics and culture, to gardening and healthy living.With a savings of over $39,000 in 2015-16, MindMatters offers professional programming at no cost to senior community centers across the commonwealth. MindMatters is designed to be viewed in a group setting and encourages senior center attendance, social interaction and stimulating discussions between center participants and presenters.“Studies have shown that when given the opportunity to participate in life-long learning or self-management programs in a senior community center, older adults are given the tools needed to better manage their life,” said Secretary of Aging Teresa Osborne.  “By providing enrichment in a social, community setting, improvements in overall mental, physical, social, spiritual, emotional and economic well-being can be measured.”Prior to MindMatters, senior community centers would pay for individuals to travel and present on various topics in person. The cost and logistics of delivering this type of programming made it difficult or sometimes impossible for centers to provide it for their participants. Now, senior centers can choose from over 30 lectures on topics of interest that appeal to their participants.Some of the MindMatters topics include:Betsy Ross: The Making of the MythExercise is MedicineFamous Pennsylvania Politicians of the 20th CenturyFood Glorious Food: Satisfaction Without GuiltGardening and PlantingOptical Illusions: A Look at How the Human Eye WorksQuilts: Crafting an American Icon“Providing on-demand access to this resource expands the opportunity for senior centers to participate and enables older Pennsylvanians throughout the commonwealth to be engaged, physically, mentally, and emotionally in their community,” said Secretary Osborne.To learn more about GO-TIME, visit https://www.governor.pa.gov/go-time/.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf GO-TIME: Department of Aging Improves Access Services at Senior Community Centercenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more


JFSE Wraps Up Taiwanese Offshore Wind Project

Posted On Sep 28 2020 by

first_imgJames Fisher Subsea Excavation (JFSE), a part of James Fisher and Sons, has completed its first project in Taiwan.JFSE deployed the shallow draft Twin R2000 tool to de-bury and retrench a cable for maintenance as part of the Formosa 1 wind farm development for its client, cable lay contractor Woen Jinn Harbor (WJH).Formosa 1, near Miaoli on the west coast of Taiwan, is a 130MW wind farm and will be the country’s first commercial-scale offshore wind project, the company noted.Lee Cheng-Yu, director at WJH, said: “This was a complex element of the project. We needed to use an M/CFE provider that had a strong track record in the offshore wind farm market so we could fully trust the cables would be protected during the process. The JFSE team and the Twin R2000 provided a fantastic service.”Richard Beattie, regional director Asia Pacific at JFSE, said: “We are delighted to have successfully completed our first project in Taiwan and provided WJH with the perfect solution for its subsea excavation requirements. The Twin R2000’s flexibility to operate in shallow water depths from 1.5m and non-contact method was vital.”last_img read more
