Dr. Breen also helped to usher in new programs at Pacific Oaks, starting with the Master’s in Organizational Leadership and Change program in 2017—the first program to incorporate coursework from each of PO’s three academic areas—followed by Advocacy & Social Justice later that year and Community Psychology in 2018.“We thank Pat for her exemplary service to Pacific Oaks over the last five years,” says Fred Marcus, J.D., the Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Pacific Oaks. “During her tenure, both the College and Children’s School have flourished and grown under her leadership and guidance. She’ll be missed.”Dr. Jack Paduntin, the previous Chief Academic Officer for TCS Education System, is currently serving as Pacific Oaks’ Interim President through May 31, 2019. The Board of Trustees at Pacific Oaks are currently assessing the needs of the College and the Children’s School and developing a formal plan for the hiring of a new president.About Pacific Oaks College & Children’s SchoolFounded more than 70 years ago in 1945, Pacific Oaks College & Children’s School (PO) is a non-profit, accredited higher education institution offering Bachelor’s and Master’s programs in human development, marriage and family therapy, education, early childhood education, teacher preparation, advocacy & social justice, community psychology, and organizational leadership and change.

1. The kinematics of labriform and subcarangiform swimming have been investigated for juvenile (7–8 cm) and adult (27–30 cm) stages of the antarctic teleost Notothenia neglecta Nybelin at 1–2 °C 2. Upper threshold speeds using the pectoral fins alone (labriform swimming) were 0.8LS−1 in adult fish and 1.4Ls−1 in juveniles, where L is body length 3. In adult fish, steady subcarangiform swimming is only used at speeds of 3.6-5.4Ls−1 (tail-beat frequencies of 5.0-8.3Hz). Intermediate speeds involve unsteady swimming. In contrast, juvenile fish employ subcarangiform swimming at a range of intermediate velocities between the maximum labriform and burst speeds (2.3-8.4Ls−1 at tail-beat frequencies of 4.0-12.5 Hz). These differences in swimming behaviour are discussed in relation to changes in life-style and muscle fibre type composition between juvenile and adult fish 4. Burst swimming speeds in N. neglecta have been compared with equivalent data from temperate species. It seems likely that low temperature limits swimming performance in antarctic fish. This is more noticeable in juvenile stages, which normally have much higher tail-beat frequencies than adult fish
Jason Wolla was the winner of a hard-fought Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic IMCA Modified Tour Thursday at Dacotah Speedway. (Photos by Mike Spieker, www.speedway-shots.com)By Mike SpiekerMANDAN, N.D. (July 12) – The defending national champion let his emotions show when the 29th annual Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Tour came to a close Thursday at Dacotah Speedway.Jason Wolla claimed a hard-fought Modified win after 30 laps, as Hunter Marriott successfully concluded his bid for a third straight title with a second-place finish.“Hell yeah! We won!” Wolla exclaimed from victory lane. “To every single one of the fans up in the stands, it means a hell of a lot for me to be able to win this race on our home track. All these guys from out of town can pack it up, we won tonight.”Outside front row starter Wolla grabbed the lead on the opening circuit as third row starters Ricky Thornton Jr. and Marriott made their way up to second and third, respectively.Thornton slid up briefly to take the lead on lap 12 but Wolla came back to retake the top spot on the other end of the speedway. The lead duo swapped the point back and forth again on the following lap before Thornton took sole possession of the position on lap 14.Wolla didn’t go away, however. Thornton got held up in lapped traffic just past halfway, which gave the lead back to Wolla.The race for the lead heated up again with 10 to go as Thornton drove to the outside in lapped traffic. Marriott made it a three-car fight for the point before Thornton tried to clear Wolla with a pair of slide jobs; each time Wolla kept his foot on the throttle and powered around the outside to hold the lead.What was a battle for the lead became a fight for second between Thornton and Marriott and Wolla drove away with five to go.After getting by Thornton for second, Marriott came charging up to Wolla. Marriott pulled even off turn four coming to the white flag. A lapped car in Marriott’s lane on the final lap was all Wolla needed to win the race back to the $2,454 checkers.Curt Lund, best known for his IMCA Modified and IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car success, scored his first win of the week in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars.Curt Lund is pretty fast around the track in an IMCA Sunoco Stock Car, too. The Minnesota veteran topped the Thursday Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Tour finale at Dacotah Speedway.Lund started on the outside of the front row for the 25-lapper but didn’t find the lead until just seven laps remained. Once out front, Lund didn’t have any time to get comfortable as eventual champion Elijah Zevenbergen, threw slide job after slide job for the lead with under five to go.A caution with two to go put Zevenbergen right on Lund’s rear bump of Lund for the restart. Lund dove to the inside of turns one and two as the race resumed. Zevenbergen didn’t have enough speed to reel in Lund on the final circuit as Lund cruised to the feature win.Zevenbergen claimed his fourth straight and fifth career Stock Car Tour title.Feature ResultsModifieds – 1.

Press Association The 45-year-old Uruguayan inherited a squad in turmoil when he took over from Paolo Di Canio at the Stadium of Light last month, and is still assessing what he has at his disposal. Poyet hinted earlier this week that he was not entirely convinced by a summer transfer policy which saw the Black Cats lose Simon Mignolet, Stephane Sessegnon and loan signing Danny Rose and recruit 14 new players under director of football Roberto De Fanti. Gus Poyet has told his Sunderland players they still have time to clinch a place in his long-term plans. However, as he prepares to deliver his verdict on the squad when the recruitment team meets to discuss the way forward during the forthcoming international break, he admits his views are changing all the time. He said: “It changes, I won’t say daily, but the most important part for me is Saturday at 3pm. “When a player performs on Saturday at 3pm – people will say to me Wednesday, 7.45pm, Tuesday, I think it’s 2.05pm this Sunday – but that’s the most important thing. “Yes, we make sure that they train well, we make sure that we do all the basics, but at the end of the day when it matters is Saturday at 3pm. “That’s when I learn the most for when I take my decisions and write my report about every single player, if we need and where we need [strengthening]. “I am going to have a meeting, it’s going to be next week or the beginning of the following week, so then I will know everything. “It’s going to be either this week or the beginning of the following, but it’s going to be in the next two weeks, for sure.” In the meantime Sunderland, who put their Barclays Premier League difficulties to one side in midweek to book a Capital One Cup quarter-final clash with Chelsea, face the task of attempting to drag themselves out of trouble against title contenders Manchester City on Sunday. Manuel Pellegrini’s men will head for the Stadium of Light having scored 14 goals in their last three games in all competitions, seven of them against Norwich last weekend. Poyet has urged his side to have greater belief on the ball and was delighted with the way they retained possession to pave the way for their midweek cup victory over Southampton. He knows the challenge will be different against City – the Saints made 10 changes for their trip to Wearside – but he is hoping for more of the same. He said: “It’s a different proposition, but if we give it to them, we are not going to get it back, for sure, so we need to be brave. “We are not going to take silly risks. In plenty of situations where we were not able to pass the ball or keep it, we are going to try to keep it a little bit better than we have been used to.” Poyet will be without suspended duo Lee Cattermole and Andrea Dossena, who were both sent off in the 1-0 defeat at Hull last Saturday, but keeper Keiren Westwood has recovered from a blow to the head and is ready to compete with Vito Mannone once again. Defender Wes Brown made his first competitive start for the club in more than 21 months on Wednesday evening, and he too is vying for a place. Poyet said: “At the time I arrived here, he was not training every day, but then he started training every day and he found it easier. “He asked to play a couple of games in the reserves behind closed doors and then he was putting himself on the line for us to pick him. “Now he is in and it’s up to him to stay there and stay fit and help us to get out of this situation.”
