"FINDING THAT CONNECTION - neurons connecting to one another in a Petri dish" (video)

"So amazing! Psych students- check this out!! https://t.co/VpvEYNadEn"

"In this video, Dr. Lila Landowski shares footage of two neurons connecting in a dish. Here's what Lila had to say about the footage:

You’re watching two neurons that I saw under the microscope sensing one another and connecting.

There are 86 billion neurons in the brain - how do they know how to connect to other neurons or body parts when our bodies are developing?"

Karl E. Backlund Sr. - obituary

You may recall the request last week to connect relatives of Karl Backlund with Ed Beksha. The community responded quickly to make the connection. Karl's obituary is now posted and shared here.
"It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Karl E. Backlund Sr, who left this world for his next big adventure on April third at the age of 78.
Karl E. Backlund Sr

A native of West Wrentham, Karl led a storied life with strong connections to his local community. He was many things, a member of the American Legion, a Boy scout leader, a talented woodworker, a collector, a fisherman, but most importantly a husband, father, grandfather, and good friend. After graduating from King Philip High School, he served his country proudly as a member of the United States Army before marrying his wife Sandra and raising their three kids: Karl, Kirk and Kim.
 
Karl was a wealth of knowledge and was never afraid to speak his mind. He lived his life on his own terms, always stubbornly committed to making sure things were done the "right" way. Although his approach could be intense, those who worked with him and for him gained from the experience. A generous man, Karl welcomed all who came to his door and was always willing to help both friends and strangers."

COVID Connectors: Connect Sick Patients with their Loved Ones with a repurposed device


Elizabeth Pehota (@pehota) tweeted at 1:09 PM on Fri, May 15, 2020:
"Have an old phone? Here's an idea 💡

Due to visitor restrictions, hospital patients feel isolated & many are looking for a way to connect with their loved ones.

That's where our #NERevs  Hometown Hero Kaya Suner comes in with COVID Connectors ⬇️"

FM_#245 Josh Vanada, President, URCC YPO 4/07/20 (audio)

FM #245 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 245 in the series.

This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Josh Vanada, President of the United Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professionals Org (YPO). We had our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

We talk about the revamping of the YPO focused around the 3 C’s (community, connection, and continuing education). The web site is being redone along with that of the United Chamber’s page. 

In the meantime, updates can be found on their Facebook page.
