Superstar Surfer Bethany Hamilton Wows the Crowd During Her Ocean City Appearance

first_imgHamilton was joined on stage by her husband, Adam Dirks, and toddler son, Tobias. By Donald WittkowskiLola DeMarco has a white T-shirt that she vows will never, ever be washed.The 10-year-old, fifth-grade student at the Ocean City Intermediate School showed off what has now become her prized possession, an autograph by famed surfer Bethany Hamilton that adorns the bottom of the shirt.“This will be getting framed,” Lola told her mother, Kim DeMarco, to make sure that the shirt and the autograph scribbled in black magic marker will never get near the washing machine.Lola was among hundreds of adoring fans who gave Hamilton the rock star treatment during the surfer’s standing room only promotional appearance Friday night at Coastal Christian Ocean City. A line of admirers stretched down the sidewalk along West Avenue while waiting for the doors to open for the event.Hamilton is proclaimed as the world’s most famous surfer, not only because of her prowess on the waves, but also her inspirational recovery from a shark bite in 2003 that severed her left arm. She was only 13 when a tiger shark attacked her while she was surfing in Kauai, Hawaii. She was back to surfing within a month of the attack.For young girls like Lola DeMarco, Hamilton is more than just a sports idol. The stirring tale of a teenager who survived what could have been a fatal shark attack and went on to become an elite adult surfer with just one arm has resonated with people across the globe.“She’s an inspiration for a lot of surfers around the world and for people in general,” Lola said. “It was so exciting to meet her.”Kim DeMarco noted that her daughter spent much of the week looking forward to seeing Hamilton.“I think it was an honor for her,” she said.Lola was lucky enough to get some one-on-one time with Hamilton during a VIP meet-and-greet session.“She is so adorable,” Hamilton later said of Lola during an interview. “I love being an inspiration in the world to young girls like her and helping them to make decisions that will empower them.”Young girls and their parents filled the audience at Coastal Christian. Sisters Lilli and Stella Kiefer, of Greenwich Township, Cumberland County, sat just a few feet from Hamilton.“I really enjoy watching her surf and enjoy looking at her pictures,” 9-year-old Stella said.“I think it’s amazing seeing her in person, after watching her movie and reading her book,” added 11-year-old Lilli.Hamilton, 26, is in the midst of a promotional and inspirational tour sponsored by the casual footwear maker Cobian, which carries her personal line of sandals.On Friday night, she also gave the audience a sneak peek of her upcoming film, “Surfs Like a Girl.” Her life story already has inspired a book, a documentary and the 2011 Hollywood feature film “Soul Surfer.”Hamilton was greeted with booming cheers and applause when she took the stage to sign autographs and talk about her experiences as a surfer and mother. Her husband, Adam Dirks, and toddler son, Tobias, accompanied her.“I guess motherhood is amazing,” she said. “I’m thankful to be a mom and share parenthood with my husband, who is amazing. We love being parents.”Despite the demands of parenthood, Hamilton remains a high-level competitive surfer. Before her public appearance, she went surfing Friday afternoon off Ocean City’s Seventh Street beach.Hamilton told the audience of her family ties to Ocean City. Her father, Tom Hamilton, who now lives in Hawaii, grew up in Ocean City and she has other relatives who live in the surrounding area, she said.She also spoke of her Christian beliefs and how her faith in God has helped her to cope with the emotional and physical challenges of losing her arm.“God loves me just as I am,” she said. “I’ve lost my arm, but I have normal-life struggles that come my way.”Hamilton has founded a nonprofit organization called “Friends of Bethany” to help shark attack survivors and amputees.Speaking on a deeply personal level to the girls in the audience, Hamilton stressed that they should not be pressured into trying to mold themselves into the unrealistic standards of beauty promoted by the mass media.“I think there’s so much more to beauty than physical attributes,” she said.last_img read more

Mayor’s Update: October 19

first_imgMayor Jay Gillian Dear Friends,The first of four pumping stations in our Fourth Ward neighborhood drainage project was activated earlier this week. These pumps are located underground near the Ocean City Municipal Airport and will benefit streets near the Stainton Wildlife Refuge at the northern end of the project area. Work to complete the other three stations continues. When they go online, residents will begin to see the full benefits of the project.Concrete and paving crews continue to make good progress on the north end drainage project. Concrete work on Sixth Street is nearing completion. The focus of this project will turn to Bay Avenue from First Street to Eighth Street. New Jersey American Water is making upgrades that must be completed before our drainage contractor can install pipes crossing Bay Avenue to outfalls on the bay. Expect detours and plan alternate routes for the next several weeks.Utility companies also are making upgrades at the southern end of the island ahead of a major road and drainage project between 55th Street and 59th Street. The utility work includes the causeway between Ocean City and Strathmere. Please use caution when driving in this area.Another project in its final stages includes stretches of North Street, First Street, Second Street and Third Street between West Avenue and Wesley Avenue.Members of our city’s Green Team and Environmental Commission toured the Cape May County recycling facility this week. The operations there are impressive with equipment and workers sorting and processing tons of recyclable materials every week. The group came back with a lot of knowledge and one important message from the facility: Don’t take plastic bags to the curb for pickup.Put recyclables directly in the can (and never in a plastic trash bag). Return single-use plastic shopping bags to the grocery store, where effective recycling programs are in place. This small step by residents can help dramatically improve the efficiency of the recycling center and help us be better stewards of the environment. I also want to let you know about three new fact sheets from our Environmental Commission, which works to raise awareness among the community about various ways to preserve the coastal environment we all know and love. See Respect Wild Animals, Run An Energy-Efficient Home and Go Solar.    Finally, I want to remind you that the city and Clean Ocean Action are seeking volunteers for our annual fall Beach Sweeps 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday, Oct. 20). Anybody who wants to help clean the beaches is encouraged to register at the Ocean City Music Pier before the event. Volunteers last year removed 373,686 pieces of debris statewide during the event.I also want to welcome to Ocean City all of the participants in this weekend’s Porsche 356 East Coast Holiday. The public can see their classic cars on display on the boardwalk from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.I hope you all have a great weekend. Warm regards,Mayor Jay A. Gillianlast_img read more

TB survival mechanism explained

first_img Read Full Story In a new paper, Eric Rubin, professor of immunology and infectious diseases at Harvard School of Public Health, and colleagues describe how tuberculosis (TB) bacteria undergo metabolic adaptation to survive attempts by immune system cells to kill them off by starving them of tryptophan. The researchers also identified a means of inhibiting tryptophan synthesis in the bacteria that could eventually lead to new treatments for TB.Read an abstract published December 5, 2013 in Cell.Watch a lighthearted video in which first author Jason Zhang, a graduate student in Rubin’s lab, explains the study.last_img read more

Brutal Cold, Light Snow Hits Long Island

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The blast of frigid air that enveloped Long Island Tuesday morning also came with light snow—a dusting that arrived just as commuters hit the roads. The white stuff is expected to continue to fall throughout the afternoon, but accumulation may not exceed 2 inches, according to the National Weather Service. Meteorologists at the NWS’ Upton office predicted between 1-2 inches, with most of the snowfall coming before 5 p.m. There is a chance of snow showers in the forecast until 7 p.m., however. While accumulation may not be significant, it’s the frigid temperature that could turn out to be the biggest nuisance. Forecasters predict a high of 26 degrees Tuesday with wind chill values between 10 and 15 degrees. The brutal chill will hang around all week, meteorologists said. Wednesday could be even colder, with the wind chill making it feel like 5 degrees during the day and below zero in the evening. There is a slight chance of snow showers Wednesday.last_img read more

NAFCU urges disclosure exemption for credit unions ahead of today’s CFPB hearing

first_img continue reading » NAFCU, noting the uniqueness of credit unions and their limited authority for member business lending, urged ahead of a CFPB public field hearing today that the CFPB exempt the industry from any future rulemaking that would require further disclosure of business loan information.Today’s hearing, slated for 11 a.m. Pacific (2 p.m. Eastern) in Los Angeles, will review a Dodd-Frank Act small business lending requirement that the CFPB collect information on small business loans made to women- and minority-owned business.NAFCU will monitor the hearing for any potential impact on the credit union industry.“Credit unions serve distinct fields of membership, and as a result, institution-level data related to women-owned, minority-owned, and small business lending substantially differs in relation to other lenders,” wrote NAFCU Regulatory Affairs Counsel Andrew Morris in a letter to the bureau on Tuesday. “Given the unique characteristics of credit unions and the limits placed on member business loans (MBLs), the CFPB should seek to exempt credit unions from any future rulemaking that compels disclosure of business loan information.” 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
