SHELTON — The explosion and resulting fireball lit up the night time sky from Fairfield to Waterbury.

Not only did the March 1, 1975, fire destroy the Sponge Rubber Products plant in downtown Shelton and send hundreds to the unemployment line, it also threatened the city’s future.

But in the basement of the then-White Street city hall, a group of dedicated city officials met, often several times a week. Led by Frank Osak and Ole Severson, they poured over rolled-up maps drawn in pencil while plotting the city’s future after the fire.

Their commission took the lead in redeveloping Bridgeport Avenue from the old Route 8 into the city’s economic corridor. The work was one of several memorable achievements for Osak in a life dedicated to community service.

On June 15, Osak, retired chief executive officer of Derby Cellular Products, died in Griffin Hospital where he served on the Board of Directors for several years. He was 90.

“Frank Osak played a key role in the development of our city. Frank is regarded as a founding father of the Route 8 corridor,” said Jimmy Tickey, Planning and Zoning commission member. “He always advocated for smart development, high-end commercial and class A offices along our main corridors, and beautiful residential zoning outside of those corridors.”

When Tickey was first elected to the commission in 2013, he invited Osak to breakfast to discuss the commission and what a new member could expect.

“He began: ‘Well, I was first elected in 1960,’’ Tickey related. “The conversation has continued since then. I consider him a mentor.”

In the early years of the 21st century, psychology became an increasingly integrative science at the intersection or hub of diverse other disciplines, from biology , neurology , and economics to sociology and Angara Vintage Oval Citrine Bezel Ring in White Gold LVnZZCn
. For example, stimulated by Amos Tversky’s and Daniel Kahneman ’s theory of decision making under risk, new areas developed, including behavioral economics and decision making, often being taught by psychologists in business schools. Likewise, advances in cognitive neuroscience led to the subfield of neuroeconomics.

In another direction, links deepened between psychology and . This connection reflected new findings in psychology about the nature of human social behaviour, as well as the fallibility of eyewitness testimony in legal trials and the distortions in retrospective memory.

Likewise, with recognition of the role of mental processes and self-care behaviour in the maintenance of health, the fields of behavioral medicine and health psychology emerged. These subfields study links between psychological processes, social behaviour, and health.

At the same time, within psychology, old sub-disciplinary boundaries were crossed more freely. Interdisciplinary teams often work on a common problem using different methods and tools that draw on multiple levels of analysis, from the social to the cognitive and to the biological.

An extremely wide range of diverse research methods are used by psychological scientists to pursue their particular goals. To study verbal and nonverbal behaviour and mental processes in humans, these include questionnaires, ratings, self-reports, and case studies; tests of personality, attitudes, and intelligence ; structured interviews; daily diary records; and direct observation and behaviour sampling outside the laboratory. Diverse laboratory measures are used to study perception, Angara Garnet and Diamond Leverback Earrings in Yellow Gold GpaFR
, memory, decision making, self-control, delay of gratification , and many other visual, cognitive, and emotional processes, at levels of both conscious and automatic or unconscious information processing.

The astonishing growth in computational power that began in the final decades of the 20th century transformed research on methods of data analysis in psychology. More-flexible and more-powerful general linear models and mixed models became available. Similarly, for nonexperimental data, multiple regression analysis began to be augmented by structural equation models that allow for chains and webs of interrelationships and for analysis of extremely complex data. The availability of free, fast, and flexible software also began to change teaching in the measurement area.

The study of religious psychology involves both the gathering and classification of data and the building and testing of various (usually rather wide-ranging) explanations. The former activity overlaps with the phenomenology of religion, so it is to some extent an arbitrary decision…

Resilience: that ability to bounce back from adversity. It is what allows you to recover from change or hardship, whether in the workplace or life in general.

As a leader, you can change your views, habits, and responses by modifying your thoughts and actions, which will help broaden your outlook and become less narrowly focused – and more able to adapt to change.

To become more resilient, center on these 8areas:

1. Accept change. Find ways to become more comfortable with change. Change is constant and inevitable, and you can be successful if you accept it rather than resist it.

2. Become a continuous learner. Learn new skills, gain new understandings, and apply them during times of change. Do not hold onto old behaviors and skills, especially when it’s obvious that they don’t work anymore.

3. Take charge. Embrace self-empowerment. Take charge of your own career and your own development. Don’t expect someone else to guide the way.

4. Find your sense of purpose. Develop a “personal why” that gives your work meaning or helps you put it into a larger context. A clear sense of purpose helps you to assess setbacks within the framework of a broader perspective.

5. Pay attention to self-identity. Form your identity apart from your job. A job is just one facet of your identity, and a career is just one aspect of your life. Separate who you are from what you do.

6. Cultivate relationships. Develop and nurture a broad network of personal and professional relationships. Personal relationships create a strong base of support — a critical element in achieving goals, dealing with hardships and developing perspective.

7. Reflect. Whether you’re riding a success or enduring a hardship, make time for reflection. Reflection fosters learning, new perspectives, and a degree of self-awareness that can enhance your resiliency.

8. Skill shift. Question (and even change) your definition of yourself or your career. Reframe how you see your skills, talents, and interests. By casting your skills in a new light, you can see how they might shift into new patterns of work and behavior.

Last time I checked, Japanese Americans were still using their Japanese names. So much for that excuse. And Africans that migrate here don’t change their names either, and they are doing exceptionally well. So you just don’t like “black-sounding” names. Too bad for you.

When white cops kill blacks, they are never prosecuted for their crimes. This is not the case for black on black crime of course. The perpetrators WILL face justice if caught. And this is precisely the point that BLM makes. That cops should be tried and convicted for their crimes against black people. But it seems that in America today, even that is too much to demand.

JMR- You are either ignorant or insane both I’d rather not be. Your foolishness is the real reason why this Nation will never live in harmony. Your statements are fact-less and field with blame and same with no interest in the entire truth. You spew this ridiculous sentiment based on your opinion with some minuscule insertion of a few facts to bolster your BS. Bottom line is, until the old guard of white America, with their disingenuous beliefs and fear die off nothing will ever change. The system you created has now come back to roost. The country was founded on Death, crimes against humanity, rape, theft and pillaging. Our ancestry stole people from their homes, brought them to another country naked, and afraid. Beat them into submission, raped their women, killed their men for attempting to flee this brutality and forced them into 400 years of free labor. Then once they built this Nation with with the blood, sweat and tears, they were so called freed at some point. Oh but no you didn’t stop there and wiped the slate clean, you then created the convict leasing System where you were able to say a black person committed a crime in order to keep slave labor. That was abolished during Reconstruction 1855-1877. Oh but no that wasn’t enough, Jim Crow 1890-1914 were there were multiple riots and more killings of blacks who were trying to gain their own wealth and systems to provide for themselves and your people wouldn’t have it. 1895 New Orleans, Wilmington insurrection 1898 aka Wilmington massacre of 1898, The event marks an era of more severe racial segregation and effective disenfranchisement of African-Americans throughout the South, a shift already underway since passage by Mississippi of a new constitution in 1890 raising barriers to voter registration. Laura Edwards wrote in Democracy Betrayed (2000), “What happened in Wilmington became an affirmation of white supremacy not just in that one city, but in the South and in the nation as a whole. Atlanta Ga race riot 1906 through 109 multiple riots conducted by white people. 1917 4 cites held race riots that year. 1920 1944- 12 race riots in ,multiple cities including the Tulsa 1921 Massacre-killing some 300 people, mostly blacks. The attack, carried out on the ground and by air, destroyed more than 35 blocks of the district, then the wealthiest black community in the nation. More than 800 people were admitted to hospitals and more than 6,000 black residents were arrested and detained, some for as many as eight days.[2] The official count of the dead by the Oklahoma Bureau of Vital Statistics was 39.
