Vermont Business Magazine During the spring of 2016, the Vermont Legislature approved an additional one million dollars in funding for the Child Care Financial Assistance Program in State Fiscal Year 2017. This increase will allow the Department for Children and Families’ Child Development Division (CDD) to make changes that will benefit child care providers and families in Vermont. This will include an increase in the amount paid for infant care when the changes take effect August 21.”We are very grateful to the Vermont Legislature for this increase,” said CDD Deputy Commissioner Reeva Murphy. “It will allow us to make several changes that will benefit child care providers, parents and children in Vermont. In particular, this increase will help us begin to address the rates the State pays for infant care, an area that is challenging for both parents and providers.”The following changes will take effect on August 21, 2016:1. The rates the State will pay for infant care will increase.The rates the state currently pays for infant care-one of the costliest types of child care-are below the rates most child care providers charge. Parents have to pay the difference between the state rate and the providers’ rates. This limits access to quality infant care for families who can’t afford to pay the difference.An across-the-board increase in the rates paid for infant care will help reduce the gap between what the state pays and what child care providers charge.* The rates paid for infant care in registered family child care homes will go up by 3 percent* The rates paid for infant care in 4-star rated licensed centers will move from the 75th percentile of the 2008 VT Child Care Market Rate to the 75th percentile of the 2009 VT Child Care Market Rate2. The income guidelines used to determine eligibility will move from the 2014 Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG) to the 2016 Federal Poverty Guidelines.Vermont currently uses the 2014 federal poverty guidelines to determine eligibility. The move to the 2016 poverty guidelines will make more families eligible for assistance and may also provide a slightly higher benefit to those participating.* The 2016 FPG for a family of four is $24,300* The 2014 FPG for a family of four is $23,8503. Increase the maximum income for eligibility from 200 percent of FPG to 300 percent of FPG.Families whose incomes are above the FPG still get child care assistance based on a sliding fee scale. This means that as their incomes go up, the amount of assistance they get goes down-to a minimum 10 percent benefit for families with incomes at 200 percent of FPG. This change will extend the 10 percent benefit to families with incomes between 200 to 300 percent of FPG.The child care provider rate schedule as of August 21, 2016 is available online at: dcf.vermont.gov/sites/dcf/files/CDD/Docs/ccfap/CCFAP_Rate_Schedule_Effective_August_2016.pdf(link is external)Source: Department of Children and Families 8.12.2016
With his profound impact off the course, it would be easy for most to overlook Takamura’s natural running ability.Takamura, who was a seven-time all-state selection in cross country and track, is a talented part of the Gophers team.After competing in only three meets a season ago, Takamura is now a strong contributor on a team that is ranked 12th in the country by the latest coaches poll.Vega – Minnesota’s No.1 runner – said Takamura has improved every year since joining the team.“He’s really determined and dedicated to improving himself,” Vega said. “You can just see that as he’s progressed through his freshman year until now, he’s definitely stepped it up quite a bit.”Last year, Takamura missed making the team that competed at the Big Ten Championships by one spot.But Plasencia said Takamura is definitely in the hunt for one of the last spots on the Gophers’ nine-person traveling team this season.Plasencia said this weekend’s event, the Jim Drews Invitational, will be crucial in determining if Takamura can make the Big Ten squad.Last season, Takamura posted a season-best eight-kilometer time of 25:44.9 at the competition.By his actions and his words, Takamura continues to prove why he is not only a leader of his team but of all athletes at the University.Takamura said he was more concerned with helping his team become a top-10 team in the country than with his personal agenda.“I guess more importantly than me being on the roster for the team is doing what I can to help the rest of the team push ourselves into that new level,” Takamura said.With an attitude of that nature, it is easy to understand why he plays such a vocal role in the athletics community and on his team.“He’s real positive and kind of a natural born leader,” Vega said. “He really helps motivate everyone around him and kind of keeps the team in a good mood. He’s a good guy to have on the team.” Takamura helping all athletes excelTakamura has a shot at making the team that will go to the Big Ten Championships. Zach EisendrathOctober 11, 2006Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintIn many ways, Minnesota men’s cross country runner Seijen Takamura’s impact off the course is just as important as his contributions on it.The redshirt sophomore is an executive member of the Student Athlete AdvisoryCommittee and is instrumental in connecting athletes with the University’s administration.Each team at the University has two representatives on this committee, which works closely with Associate Athletics Director Leo Lewis and Athletics Director Joel Maturi. But Takamura is one of only five executive members who oversee the group.Takamura, who applied and was appointed to the position after being encouraged by teammate Ben Hanson last fall, said he took the job because he feels comfortable in leadership roles and wanted to make a direct impact on helping student-athletes become more well-rounded individuals.The North Mankato native is no stranger to being in a leadership position. At Mankato West High School, Takamura was student council president and a National Honor Society member.The habit of athletes to hang out solely with their teammates and shy away from the rest of the college community is one glaring problem Takamura said the Student Athlete Advisory Committee is working to address. He described many athletes as “isolated.”“We kind of want to break down some of those barriers and make everyone more accessible to each other,” Takamura said.A commitment to volunteering in the community and increased graduation rates among athletes are other goals Takamura said the organization has.But his leadership extends beyond his position on the committee. Takamura is a leader on his team as well.Coach Steve Plasencia, who said he faced recruiting competition for Takamura’s services primarily from Ivy League schools because of his high academic standards, said one of Takamura’s greatest qualities is his leadership.“For a third-year guy, he’s in many respects mature like a fifth-year senior,” Plasencia said. “One of his great assets is that level of maturity.”On a team composed predominately of underclassmen, senior captain Antonio Vega said Takamura relates well to the youngsters, who might be intimidated when coming into the program.“He really gets them involved as being part of the team,” Vega said. “Seijen really steps up and goes out of his way to make sure everyone feels comfortable.”

STOCKHOLM — Haldex announced that it has reorganized the company into a “functional organization.” The Group Management structure will be extended to include business development and global sourcing and logistics functions. Haldex says this new functional organization will reduce complexity and optimize the processes through the entire value chain, from R&D to the final customer product. Effective immediately, the new functional organization will replace the present structure for the company’s two business units, Air Controls and Foundation Brake. The Group Management will reflect the organizational change and will include the new functions of Business Development and Global Sourcing & Logistics. As a result, Paul Bale will take the new position of SVP, Business Development. Bale joined the Haldex Group in 2000 and has held several senior-level management positions within the company. Bjarne Lindblad will take the new position of SVP, Global Sourcing & Logistics. Lindblad brings nearly 10 years of relevant experience within Haldex and has held several vice president positions in the controlling and purchasing functions within the company. Ulf Ahlén, CEO and president of Haldex, commented, “The new functional organization is a natural step in our continuous ambition to reduce complexity and to streamline the company. A functional organization simplifies the execution of our long-term R&D strategy, the rationalization of the supplier network, and supports the continuous work of standardizing business and production processes. “I welcome Paul and Bjarne into the Group Management. Paul’s comprehensive product and technology knowledge, along with Bjarne’s extensive experience in strategic sourcing, will add valuable competence and creativity into the Group Management,” Ahlén said. The company noted that this organizational change will not have a major effect on Haldex’s quarterly reporting format. AdvertisementClick Here to Read MoreAdvertisement
Independent/Harlow + BentleyJacquline Farjam grew up on Long Island until she was 18 years old, that’s when she moved to Los Angeles to study fashion design and business management at Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Then, in 2006, she and two friends started a fashion blog. They traveled around the country, covering runway shows, which eventually led to the development of an online luxury shopping experience company that supported independent artisan jewelry designers.With all of the experience and knowledge under her belt, in 2014 she began working for Alice + Olivia in Manhasset and East Hampton as a personal wardrobe stylist. Still, she wanted more — her own candle company to be specific. That’s when Harlow + Bentley was born.How did the idea for Harlow + Bentley come about?Candles have always been a part of my life. I’ve realized how transformative candles can be for our wellbeing and how much peace they bring people by allowing them to live in the moment. It allows you to set the mood for whatever the occasion, whether you’re hosting a dinner party, want to relax at home, or a romantic night.Lighting candles at social events or when guests are over also brings forth a particular ambiance that creates a connection between people and a zone of comfort and a positive environment for everyone. I came up with the name Harlow + Bentley during one of my brainstorming sessions. I just loved how it sounds.What’s the specific connection to the East End?When I lived in Los Angeles, I would go back to New York and spend time in the Hamptons, attending many social events and enjoying beach life. Now, I live in East Hampton every summer and fall. I’m not sure which I love better. There’s the feeling of the summer excitement in the air and running into familiar faces in town, and the crisp fall days and nights having a glass of wine in Cittanuova in East Hampton when the crowds lessen in September. I just love it there.The Hamptons always seem to feel like what I describe “a big-small world.” So many people come and go, yet when you stick around long enough, you see many familiar faces over the years like clockwork. Acquaintances whose faces you see walking down the street become friends, those friends become like family over the years, and it’s just lovely. The East End is where I do a lot of my business. When I created the brand Harlow + Bentley, some of my biggest supporters were the owners and buyer at Whites Apothecary. I’ll eternally be grateful to have had them in my corner since the beginning.How does Harlow + Bentley connect to the community itself?We’re proud product sponsors for over 300 VIP guests and attendees at the annual Social Life Magazine St. Barths event hosted by supermodel Christie Brinkley. The feedback we got and support from the East End and city crowd was wonderful and those individuals continue to order today. As business expanded out east, we have offered many of our shoppers delivery right to their doorstep during the summer and early fall seasons.I personally do candle consultations and we enjoy assisting our customers in choosing the right scents for their homes and their businesses over email, or calls as well. Our mission is to provide a luxury R & R environment for our clientele with our quality offerings. Our client base also loves to set up private at-home candle shopping events with their friends and family. We have fun with it, and it is definitely an enjoyable experience for everyone involved. We truly enjoy being such an integrated part of the community and having such a supportive energy from the community behind us.Describe your candle making process.Every scent in the line is well thought-out and tested by bringing it to markets across New York for feedback from our customers. Each scent has a unique blend of fragrances that are exclusive to our brand. In addition, we like to say we have a “scent for every nose.” This means that we covered many main scent variations, whether you are a fan of floral scents, beach house/fresh linen scents, vanilla baked good scents, masculine scents, sweet scents, scents reminiscent of holiday and spring ideals. There is a scent for everyone to enjoy.The scents sound relaxing. Which are your favorites?My personal favorite scents are No.1 White Tea and Ylang Ylang, or the No.4 Sandalwood and Patchouli, which I very often burn together. The soft floral notes of the No. 1 combined with the natural earth tones and warm amber in our No. 4 candle is just so soothing to me.Each scent is reminiscent to me for various reasons. For example, the crisp and touch of soft sweetness in the scent of No.5 Rosé Musk scent reminds me of the notes of summer nights with a glass rosé sitting by the beach. The No. 2 Cotton Blossom and Citrus scent smells like fresh summer linens and beach notes. No. 3 Bourbon and Vanilla reminds me of swanky jazz nights in NYC. Each scent has its own personality.What inspires new fragrances?My inspiration behind the different scents are the places I’ve been and the stories I’m trying to tell. We have several main signature scents that are always available, as well as our seasonal scents, but we’re also launching six new collections that will be available for purchase online.Do you have a favorite story you associate with a particular scent?There are too many to choose from, but recently a friend of mine reached out after receiving the Gardenia candle and what she told me made my heart melt and it was a good reminder of why I started Harlow + Bentley. My friend left me a voice message in tears telling me how the Gardenia scent brought back memories of her grandmother and how that candle was so special to her.These are the types of moments that make all the hard work worth it. Listening to her recall this is the type of moment in my business that makes all the hard work I put in so incredibly rewarding. Giving someone some much needed R & R with our products and linking them to good memories from their past really warms my heart and makes me love what I do even more.Harlow + Bentley is currently offering 15 percent off entire orders using discount code “SUPPORTSMALLBIZ.” See the entire collection at www.harlowandbentley.com and be sure to follow on Instagram @harlowandbentley for upcoming [email protected] Share

LONDON, CMC – A disappointing batting effort from West Indies A left them with an uphill task of saving their four-day match against County side Surrey. Replying to the hosts’ first innings of 366 all out, West Indies collapsed to 178 in reply, to concede a lead of 188 runs, on the second day of the encounter at the Oval.Batting a second time, Surrey were 62 for one – a lead of 250 runs heading into today’s penultimate day.Left-hander Vishaul Singh top-scored with 47, Odean Smith got 30 while wicketkeeper Devon Thomas chipped in with 28, but the Caribbean side found life difficult against the South African pace duo of Morne Morkel and Mathew Pillans. Morkel, 33, who recently retired from international cricket after playing 86 Tests, claimed three for 12 while Pillans ended with three for 29.John Campbell fell for five with the score on 28, losing his off-stump to a full length delivery from Morkel, and opening partner Chandrapaul Hemraj followed for 19 four balls later in the same over, caught at second slip by Scott Borthwick.When Pillans removed Sunil Ambris for 12 to a catch by Mark Stoneman at square leg, Windies A were struggling on 53 for five. However, Singh and Thomas then put their heads down in a 49-run, fourth wicket stand which propped up the innings.While Singh faced 112 balls in a shade over three hours at the crease and struck five fours, Thomas notched four boundaries in a 65-ball knock.Windies A suffered a major setback just before tea, losing Thomas and Raymon Reifer (0) in the space of three deliveries with no runs added at 102. Thomas chased a wide one from Pillans and was caught at the wicket while Reifer drove at the second ball he faced and edged to Stuart Meaker at third slip.With captain Shamarh Brooks unable to bat due to injury, the end came swiftly for Windies at as Borthwick chipped in with two for 35 with his leg-spin.Earlier, Borthwick ended on 175 not out as Surrey frustrated the tourists, after resuming the morning on 309 for eight. On 153 at the start, the left-hander batted 279 balls in just over 7-1/2 hours and struck 22 fours and a six, all told.Left-arm seamer Reifer picked one of the wickets to fall to end with the best figures of three for 65.
The player has given his OK to the Pericos regarding a four-year deal and they must now reach an agreement with Spurs. CEST Fazio is the club’s primary target in defence and the club are keen to tie the deal up as soon as possible. Talks with the player are at an advanced stage and it seems the transfer could be completed soon, with the English club keen to move the Argentine on. 08/07/2016 The Barcelona-based club have made big strides this week in a move for Tottenham centre-back Federico Fazio. Lluis Miguelsanz Espanyol president Chen Yansheng was in London this week, accompanied by CEO Ramon Robert, to talk about the deal. Tottenham paid 10 million euros for him two summers ago, but he’s failed to adapt to English football and spent last season back on loan at Sevilla. Espanyol’s second option was Diego Llorente, who was offered to them by Real Madrid, but the young defender has now moved on loan to Malaga. It seemed as if Espanyol had eased off in their search for new defender, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Upd. at 18:28
