SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Bengie Molina was eating an ice cream sandwich. It was an hour before the first pitch. Joc Pederson, then a Palo Alto high school senior, had his first taste of big league life after being dragged into the Giants clubhouse by a family friend.

“I’m like, ‘The major leagues are the best! It’s amazing,” Pederson, 29, recalled Thursday from inside another Giants clubhouse, the newly renovated one inside Scottsdale Stadium, where he arrived that morning after signing a one-year, $6 million deal with the hometown club.

Since that seminal moment in 2010 – jumping the railing of the then AT&T park, meeting Pablo Sandoval, who gave him a pair of batting gloves without knowing they would team up a decade later in Atlanta – Pederson has racked up a rich playoff experience and refined a powerful left-side-of-the-plate swing, two qualities the Giants hope can complement a team that won 107 games last season and is aiming for something more than a first-round exit from the playoffs.

“I think he’ll fit right in at our clubhouse,” said Alex Wood, who reunited with Pederson after four years with the Dodgers from 2015-2018. “He’s not afraid of the spotlight. He likes big moments and he tends to do well. He is the kind of player we are looking for and need in our clubhouse.

Pederson has made the playoffs in each of his seven professional seasons, including four trips to the World Series. He rose to prominence last season during the Braves’ World Series race for wearing pearls around his neck and wore a black pearl necklace, just under a head of bleached blonde hair styled in a messy mohawk, so that he was taking his first batting practice. cuts inside Scottsdale Stadium.

“He’s pure entertainment all the time,” Wood said. “It’s just Joc, man. He likes to have a good time and likes to play ball.

On the same day Pederson signed his deal, however, the Giants’ path to the playoffs was made more difficult by a few splashy signings within their division. The Rockies paid $182 million for Kris Bryant, while the Dodgers gave Freddie Freeman $160 million. The Giants, meanwhile, seem content going into the season with Pederson as their main roster upgrade, which is losing Bryant and Buster Posey.

“From a roster perspective, it suits us really well, the way Kap manages the roster and tries to match,” said Farhan Zaidi, president of baseball operations for the Giants. “He was one of the best power hitters against right-handers in his entire career at the big league level. … We still really believe in talent. When he’s in the batting box, he can do things in the batting box that few guys at the big league level can do. …On pure ability, he ranks highly on our list. It’s just our responsibility and his responsibility to get him out of this.

Under Zaidi, the Giants have not given a contract worth more than the $44 million they promised Carlos Rodon or longer than the three years they committed to Anthony DeSclafani. Avoiding costly long-term deals may seem like an organizational philosophy at this point, but Zaidi has firmly refuted that impression.

“That’s just not the case,” Zaidi said. “We talked a lot about the benefits of flexibility. But there is no absolute rule regarding the maximum number of years or the maximum of dollars. We have certainly made offers beyond these figures. … There are big free agents and one team signs them and 29 don’t. You are going to be among the 29 more than you are the one doing it. …that’s not to say there aren’t players getting big deals that we’d love to have and have been involved with.

Zaidi said the Giants, whose payroll currently stands at about $135 million, below last season’s total and nearly $100 million below the luxury tax threshold, have the flexibility financial to add more parts, but have indicated that the group they have is more or less the one they will start the season with.

“I think we’re at a point now where we’re going to have a discussion about a player and you have to say, well, who’s going off the roster; who’s losing at bats?” Zaïdi said. our list right now. Any additions at this price.

The deal with Pederson was so obvious it almost happened a year ago. Zaidi, whose relationship with Pederson dates back to their time in Los Angeles, pursued Pederson last offseason, but the outfielder opted for a day-to-day role in Chicago and was eventually traded to Atlanta.

Finally, playing for the team he grew up on – yes, he confirmed he was a Giants fan as a kid, despite his dad spending 12 years in the Dodgers organization – was ‘surreal’ , Pederson said. Now an adult, Pederson has two children of his own and both sets of their grandparents reside in the Bay Area.

When Pederson arrived at the clubhouse on Thursday morning, he was greeted by a locker next to his for his brother, Champ, who has Down syndrome and played a major role in Pederson’s life.

“I sent him a photo. … He’s going to be thrilled,” Pederson said. good things, so I show up today and his locker is there….I think that shows the first class organization they are.

On the field, Pederson has a long history of right-handed throwing shuffling — a career .832 on base plus slugging — but struggled to replicate the same success with the Dodgers in 2020 and again in 2021. Pederson finished 2021 with a .238/.310/.422 batting line and did no better against lefties.

The Giants will place Pederson in their outside corner spots and designated hitter. They’re hoping that by minimizing his exposure to lefties, they can extract the same type of production that led to 123 home runs in his first four major league seasons.

As Pederson struggled to secure his own “prove it” deal last season, it was hard not to notice the success of other players in San Francisco, whether it was Brandon Crawford’s career year or the escapes such as Darin Ruf.

Even in his early years, Oprah Winfrey overcame obstacles such as neglect and discrimination to become one of the most powerful voices in the world. Orpah Gail Winfrey was born on January 29, 1954 in Kosciusko, Mississippi, and has since become one of the richest women in the world. His first name is not misspelled; it is a biblical link with the character of Ruth.

Growing up, she was constantly confused with Oprah by people who didn’t know any better. When Vernita Lee gave birth to Oprah as a teenager, she was a single housekeeper. Vernon Winfrey, Oprah’s father, served in the military when she was born.

Education

Vernita moved in with Oprah’s grandmother because of her situation. Oprah remembers having to go to school in a sack of potatoes because her family was so poor. Oprah was a student at Lincoln High School in Milwaukee. Nicolet High School accepted her into a special program for poor students because of her academic success. Back at East Nashville High School, Oprah would struggle.

WVOL, a local African-American radio station, hired Oprah as a part-time news anchor when she was just 17 after winning the “Miss Black Beauty Tennessee Pageant.” As a student at Tennessee State University, Oprah would be eligible for a scholarship to pursue a degree in communications. At the age of 19, Oprah decided to leave school and seek a career in media.

Real estate owned by Oprah Winfrey

As of this writing, Oprah resides at “The Promised Land”, a mansion in Montecito, California. This property, which she bought in 2001 for nearly $50 million, has a total area of ​​about 42 acres. To date, the property is valued at $90,000,000, according to numerous publications.

She also owns a 41-acre property on Orcas Island, Washington, which she owns. Since 2016, she has owned the Seamair Farm Estate, a 23-acre property.

As we can all guess, these are some of the most expensive real estate properties in the world, and their value continues to rise, as does our favorite person’s net worth.

Oprah Winfrey’s Investments

In 2015, Oprah invested $43 million in Weight Watchers and owns a 10% stake in the company. Oprah Winfrey’s current interest in the company is valued at approximately $218 million.

Biography of Oprah Winfrey

She was born in Mississippi on January 29, 1954.

As a result of the above, Oprah Winfrey has been dubbed “Queen of Media”. It’s no secret that the queen of media, as she is affectionately known, had a rocky start to life. Thanks to her grandmother’s encouragement, she learned to read before the age of three.

A History of Oprah Winfrey’s Net Worth

Net worth by the end of the year

  • 1985 $500,000
  • 1989 $1,000,000
  • 1995 $500,000,000
  • 2000 $1,000,000,000
  • 2007 $2,000,000,000
  • 2014 $3,000,000,000
  • 2019 $3,100,000,000
  • 2020 $3,500,000,000

In 1999/2000, Oprah became the first black woman billionaire in the United States. She was making $300 million a year by this point, producing her own program as well as that of Dr. Phil and Rachael Ray. As of this writing, Oprah Winfrey is the fourth richest celebrity in the world. Kanye West ($6.6 billion), Steven Spielberg ($7.5 billion) and George Lucas ($10 billion) are the only three billionaires who can match his wealth.

Oprah Winfrey

Projects and amendments

For the past two years, Oprah has served on the board of Weight Watchers. She received $43.5 million in stock when she joined the company. The value of that stake has grown to about $400 million. Earlier this year, she agreed to a multi-year deal to produce shows for Apple as part of the company’s content strategy.

Among Oprah’s acting credits are The Color Purple (1985), Beloved (1998), The Butler (2013), and Selma (2014). There are many TV shows and documentaries that she has created.

For “The Color Purple” and “Selma,” Oprah has been nominated for two Oscars so far, one for Best Supporting Actress and the other for Best Picture. The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Academy Award was presented to him in 2011.

Oprah has 18 Daytime Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe, two Primetime Emmy Awards and a Tony Award to her credit. She has been nominated for 26 Daytime Emmy Awards and won 18.

Oprah’s Billion Dollar Success Story

A new contract with King World/ABC was not finalized after Oprah fired her agent, Jeffrey Jacobs. King World was adamant about not renegotiating. It turned out to be a very happy refusal. Rather than give away a small portion of the show’s syndication points, King World allowed Jeffrey Jacobs and Oprah to unwittingly establish an empire.

As the talks dragged on, Jeffrey and Oprah formed their own company, HARPO Productions, to move forward on their own terms.

There wasn’t much King World could do about it. National syndication seemed inevitable at the time, as Oprah’s ratings in Chicago were at an all-time high. In the end, they should have paid Oprah a portion of the profits. They should have paid a few million dollars a year for it. ‘

King World eventually returned to the table, but Oprah no longer wanted a share of the backend. King World executives were surprised when she revealed that she intended to create the series by HERSELF. She and Jeffrey would cover all production costs for the show through HARPO Productions at HARPO Studios, and they would then pay a pre-determined fee to King World to syndicate the show across the country. King World now had a job with a salary.

Ninety percent of HARPO was owned by Oprah. Jeffrey held a tenth stake in the company.

Then Oprah and Jeffrey entered into a much larger overall deal with ABC that covered film productions, a magazine, books, and most importantly, the ability to create other TV shows under its production umbrella…. His 3.5-acre HARPO facility would be the exclusive location for all series production.

There is more than that.

As for Oprah and Jeffrey, they were able to get a piece of King World Productions. Oprah would enjoy all King World shows, including Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, as part of this deal.

In 1999, CBS paid $2.5 billion in stock to acquire King World. One percent of CBS was owned by Oprah once the deal closed. In the mid-1990s, she struck a deal with ABC that saw her own a significant share of Disney stock.

Oprah Winfrey would go on to earn several BILLIONS of dollars from traditional contracts, while her 1980s talk show contemporaries like Sally Jesse Raphael, Phil Donahue and Jerry Springer would go on to earn tens of millions of dollars.

Jeff Vorva Times Correspondent

One afternoon shortly before Thanksgiving, Providence Catholic elder Matthew Martin turned the key and looked in his mailbox, but received nothing from the Western Golf Association. .

The WGA is involved in the Evans Scholarship program, and Martin was hoping to win one of the coveted prizes.

Never mind. Maybe it will come another day.

Turns out the Orland Park resident had a grateful Thanksgiving. After knocking on the mailbox, he noticed a package on his porch.

“I understood straight away what it was,” he said. “I was so happy and excited.”

The Evans Scholarship is a boon for high school graduates: it is valued at more than $120,000 over four years.

The WGA announced in January that Martin was one of 65 Chicago-area students to have received the scholarship, which provides full housing and tuition to golf caddies.

According to a press release, each winner reflects the scholarship’s four selection criteria: a strong cadet record, excellent academics, demonstrated financial need and exceptional character.

People also read…

“These young men and women are part of an outstanding incoming class of New Scholar caddies from across the country,” WGA President Joe Desch said in the statement. “They represent what the Evans Scholars program has been since 1930.”

An estimated 315 cadets are expected to receive the Evans Scholarship across the country.

Caddies Martin at Ruth Lake Country Club in Hinsdale.

“It’s the perfect job for someone my age,” Martin said. “I’ve been doing this for five years and who hires 4th graders except for the golf courses? It’s a chance to get outside, exercise, meet great people and learn about golf, a sport I love.

One of the people he has met on the course is Chicago Blackhawks star Jonathan Toews.

“I was a caddy in his group and I got to spend four hours with him,” Martin said. “That was great. He probably can’t remember my name now.

Around Providence, they surely know his name. Martin is a man in constant motion. He is on the golf and volleyball teams. He is president of the school’s student council, a member of the National Honor Society, competes on the Scholastic Bowl and Mock Trial teams, is a student ambassador, and is a member of the science club and other organizations.

If that’s not enough, he started a bag club that grew from a handful of students to 70 members.

How does he juggle such a crazy schedule?

“I’m not always the most organized person,” he admitted. “I try to prioritize things. Who would benefit the most from my presence? »

The Evans Scholars Foundation works with select colleges and caddies can submit a wish list of where they would like to go.

Martin hasn’t chosen his college yet, but he’s considering finance as a major.

He said his dream job would be in golf finance.

A record 1,070 caddies are enrolled at 21 universities across the country as Evans Scholars, and more than 11,500 have graduated as Evans Scholars since the program’s inception by famed Chicago amateur golfer Charles ” Chick » Evans Jr.

“These young students have each demonstrated excellence in the classroom, in their communities and on the golf course,” said WGA President and CEO John Kaczkowski. “We are proud to welcome them to the Evans Scholars family.”

Evans Scholars Alumni donates more than $17 million annually, with all proceeds from the BMW Championship going to the Evans Scholars Foundation.

ROSELAND — A hospital on the far South Side provides dental education for young Chicagoans and their parents, including working in parts of the South Side that have long lacked access to routine dental care.

Roseland Community Hospital’s mobile dental clinic returned in February after a hiatus during the pandemic. Dental van staff are again providing young people and their families with dental checkups, cleanings and goody bags with toothbrushes and other hygiene items, hospital officials said.

Patients at the mobile clinic receive check-ups every six months, and staff refer patients to local dentists if they need more complex care.

Young participants of the Roseland Community Hospital Mobile Dental Clinic enter a mobile dental van.

Deputy Director Antwone Belt, a Roseland native who oversees the program, said the clinic is improving access to dental care for children and parents in his home neighborhood.

Belt said he had teeth that looked like “the skyscrapers of Chicago” when he was younger, and his peers teased him. But he received dental work in high school that inspired him to pursue health care, and now Roseland’s mobile clinic enables others to pursue proper oral health care.

“Kids can learn good dental hygiene, parents can learn things they probably didn’t even know,” Belt said. “[We can] make the kids not ashamed of the way their teeth look because maybe they were made fun of at school like me, and take that and kind of turn a negative into positive.

Belt and the team also work with daycare workers and parents, teaching them how to instill good dental care habits in children so they are healthier throughout their lives.

“It’s like a dream, it’s a dream come true,” Belt said. “Because you really have a role to play in engaging your community, people who know what Roseland was like, what we’re doing – having a real involvement with those people.”

The mobile dental clinic started in 2013. The hospital was able to launch the mobile dental program and get its signature van thanks to a grant from the Washington Square Health Foundation.

Belt believes the mobile dental clinic is a long-needed public service for Roseland, which has historically had limited access to fair health care and information.

“A lot of these things that other neighborhoods or communities may have to see on a regular basis, we haven’t had those kinds of opportunities,” Belt said. “That’s why the dental program is so integral, because we can go to you.”

With the mobile dental clinic returning to Roseland and other communities, Belt hopes he and his colleagues can continue to provide services for years to come.

“I just want to carry on with this message, year after year,” Belt said. “It’s not about numbers; it is about education. I want to continue with this trend and get people to understand that at Roseland Hospital, we really appreciate what we do and we want to help save lives, to promote people in the best way possible, to be the best version of ‘themselves.

History teacher Wendy Leighton holds a copy of ‘They Called Us Enemies’, about the internment of Japanese Americans, while talking about being marginalized with her students at Monte del Sol Charter School on 3 December 2021, in Santa Fe, NM As conservative ruled states across the United States try to restrict discussions of race, gender, and identity in the classroom, progressive states try to prioritize these discussions. In New Mexico, education officials are moving forward with a social studies curriculum that places greater emphasis on identity, race, and “systemic privilege or inequality.”




If Frank Thomas had played Major League Baseball in this century, or even in the 70s, 80s, or 90s, he would have made money for my grandkids-who-will-never-have-to -work-a-day-of-their-life .

Thomas – not to be confused with the Chicago White Sox Hall of Fame designated hitter of the same name who played in the 1990s and therefore made my grandkids-never-have-to-work -a-day-in-the-money-of-a-lifetime-was a three-time all-star, hit 30 homers in three seasons and had 10 years where he hit at least 20 homers.

But he did in the 1950s and 1960s, so he still had to worry about making a living when his baseball career was over.

When the cheers died down, Frank Thomas made ends meet by selling the future.

That’s how he ended up in my ninth-grade computer class.

It was 1980 and we were learning programming on Apple IIE computers, which had 48K hard disk memory. By today’s standards, it’s next to nothing – each of the photographs on this page is a digital file that far exceeds what was once the capacity of an entire desktop computer – but it was powerful enough for the era.

And since Thomas had his best seasons in Major League Baseball before any of us were born, we had no idea who he was. Our computer teacher, Mr. Grimm, cleared things up for us. He was a wrestling coach, but he knew his baseball.

Thomas told us that we could learn to manipulate all those ones and zeros that make computers do what we want them to do. and he promised that we would build that future faster if we went to business school – that we would start cashing the paychecks when our peers were only halfway through college.

How could that be possible, he asked. Then he answered the question.

While students must take liberal arts classes — history, philosophy, foreign languages ​​— Thomas told us that the business school curriculum would only teach us what we need to know to work in that future.

This 40-year-old message has become new again.

One of the few things everyone — Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives — can agree on these days is that more young people should consider trade schools and apprenticeships as an alternative to college.

And that’s true.

Instead of going to college and racking up debt that at best would take years or even decades to pay off, business and trade schools like the one Frank Thomas once promoted can quickly teach young people the skills they need to enter the workforce.

And only those skills. This is where the problem lies.

This is not to denigrate career-oriented education, but the school must do more than prepare young people for the labor market.

In a political system where we choose our leaders, where individual freedom is sacrosanct, education must be more than professional training. Too often, however, school – from kindergarten to college graduation – is viewed solely as vocational training.

We regularly ask elementary school students what they will be like when they grow up. and that doesn’t mean we want to know their desires or aspirations regarding their goals, or what kind of parent or spouse they will be.

We want to know what they will do in life.

We regularly ask high school graduates going to college what they plan to major in. If they say something like ‘philosophy’ or ‘women’s studies’, we say, ‘What kind of job will you get with this degree?’ »

Ironically, the liberal arts, where young people learn what have come to be known as “soft skills,” can prepare them for a multitude of jobs.

But it avoids a troubling reality – our society has commodified education, just as it has commodified health care, the environment, water, and other necessities that probably shouldn’t have a price.

We value education mainly for its professional reward. and we do so at our own risk.

Over the past few years, the pandemic has taught us that understanding the historical context, distinguishing good information from bad, and knowing the scientific method can literally be a matter of life and death.

Education cannot simply be a means of gaining access to employment. It must teach us to be citizens.

This isn’t the first time Enchanted Backpack has visited the area. Joe Froelich, assistant director of logistics, said he visited a school in Merrillville last week.

Also, Enchanted Backpack visited Scott College in 2020, which is located in the school town of Hammond. Scott was the first school in Indiana to receive supplies.

Froelich said there weren’t always students greeting them outside, especially with this weather. He said it was a really special moment and he enjoyed the production.

“We are incredibly lucky to receive this donation because only 50 schools are selected each year,” Sylvia Alvarez, district parent coordinator for the East Chicago School City, said in an email.

For East Tennessee State University student Ian Shockley, long before the director called “camera, action,” there were lights.

A love for acting and, in particular, a deep passion for lighting design brought the Jonesborough resident to ETSU after graduating with honors from David Crockett High School in 2019.

Now in its freshman year, Shockley is set to make its debut. Next week, when ETSU’s Drama and Dance Department presents the drama “Straight White Men,” it will mark Shockley’s first major show as a lighting designer.

And he can’t wait.

“Lighting greatly affects the mood of the room,” Shockley said. “For ‘Straight White Men,’ the setting is a family room in suburban Chicago. It’s also Christmas and there are a lot of lighting situations to deal with.

When creating a design plot for a show, Shockley says the first step is to dig into the script. What is given? What is needed based on the room’s actions?

“It’s about exposure and getting the vibe and feeling of the show while supporting the actors on stage,” he said.

“The space we work in is amazing,” Shockley said, referring to the Bert C. Bach Theater, an intimate, state-of-the-art black box facility inside the new Martin Center for the Arts. The Bach Theater opened in the fall of 2021 and “Straight White Men” will be the second show to be performed there.

“The black box space is very flexible and offers great creative freedom.”

Shockley specializes in theater design/production and gained various experiences during his time at ETSU. In addition to working in the Stage Shop and Costume Shop, he was the lighting programmer for last fall’s production of “Men on Boats.” He is also the technical director of the Patchwork Players, a student-run theater organization that produces shows and programs throughout the year.

“One of the greatest things about the Technical Theater program at ETSU is that you get a lot of one-on-one help,” he said. “Not only do you have access to this wonderful creative space, but you also have the chance to be mentored by talented teachers like Melissa Shafer.”

“Ian came to ETSU with a solid foundation in stage lighting production through his active involvement in local community theater lighting,” said ETSU Professor Shafer. “What the Department of Theater and Dance at ETSU was able to offer Ian was its focus on lighting aesthetics. ‘Straight White Men’ is his first collegiate lighting design and , with the opening of the Martin Center for the Arts, Ian has state-of-the-art equipment to work and learn in, much like a chef working with the finest knives or a painter with the finest brushes. joy to see him evolve as a designer.

Shockley has done design work for other theaters and says her plans after graduation include working for a regional theater or performing arts company, or maybe a touring show.
