Young Skilled Auto Service Technician 
to Compete at WorldSkills Competition

Leesburg, Va. - Paul Allen Danenberg, of Boise, Idaho, will represent the United States in Automobile Technology at the biennial WorldSkills Competition in Kazan, Russia. Danenberg will compete as a member
 of the WorldSkills USA team, selected and trained by SkillsUSA. The 45th international event will be held Aug. 22-27, 2019.
 
Danenberg looks forward to competing in Kazan. "Seeing all of the different cars that aren't available in America - and being able to work on them - is going to be a valuable experience that I will never forget," he said.
When asked what he most enjoys about his skill, Danenberg said, "You can see any combination of weird issues: a vacuum leak causing a fuel rail pressure sensor code on a VW; a jumped timing chain causing a low fuel rail pressure on a GM; or a ground that has high resistance causing all kinds of electrical problems from voltage feedback. The work is very rewarding."
After the WorldSkills competition, Danenberg hopes to become a field service engineer, traveling across the country to diagnose and repair issues that nobody else can fix. "It sounds like a great opportunity to travel and perform my favorite part about my job. Eventually, I would also like to give back to my community and become an automotive teacher for a postsecondary program."
 
Every two years, WorldSkills hosts the world championships of skills, which
attracts more than 1,600 competitors from more than 76 countries and regions around the world to compete in more than 50 different trade skills. Considered the best in the world in each trade skill, contestants compete before the public for four days in contests that are run and judged by industry using demanding international standards. They represent the best students from each nation and many are highly trained by their sponsoring country. To see a list of competitions, go to: https://worldskills2019.com/en/event/skills/
 
There are 22 members on the WorldSkills USA Team, with an average age of 19. Other occupational areas in which the United States plans to compete include Aircraft Maintenance, Autobody Repair, Bakery, Bricklaying, Cabinetmaking, Car Painting, CNC Milling, Cooking, Cyber Security, Graphic Design, Hairdressing, Heavy Vehicle Maintenance, Mechanical Engineering CAD, Mechatronics, Plumbing and Heating, Print Media, Restaurant Service, Web Technologies and Welding.
 
Hundreds of thousands of spectators, public policymakers, employers, teachers, trainers, technical experts and government officials from around the world will attend this competition. The event will be held at the Kazan Expo International Exhibition Centre. For more information about the competition, go to:  https://worldskills2019.com/en

AlleviateStressFour Most Important Things to Alleviate Stress
Welcoa Absolute Advantage, David Hunnicutt, PhD

Dr. Hunnicut says, "With stacks of research to support it, researchers have found that the consequences of stress in the U.S. have become very real. According to the latest estimates, experts tell us that 80% of all disease may actually be stress-related. In my world, 80% is a very big number, especially in a country where more than $2 trillion is spent on health care services. When it comes to who stays healthy and who gets sick in the U.S., stress may very well be the #1 factor."

"Stress is a big issue in the U.S. In fact, it's everywhere. It dogs us at work. It plagues us at home. It travels with us on the road. It shares our relationships. Ironically, it even sleeps with us."

But there are four very effective ways to tackle stress and they have nothing to do with gimicks such as stress balls. It starts with setting boundaries, learning to quiet the mind, turning off the TV and practicing compassion.

StageDoorCSI Stage Door Series Presents "The Second Coming of Joan of Arc"

The CSI Stage Door Series will present "The Second Coming of Joan of Arc" at 7:30 p.m. on April 18 the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults or $5 for students. Tickets will be available at the CSI Box Office, by calling 732-6288, at the door, or by going online to http://tickets.csi.edu.

She led an army to victory, crowned a king, took on the entire Catholic Church...and was dead by 19. Joan of Arc is the MOST documented figure of the 15th century, and yet myths about her pervade the history books, to this day. In The Second Coming of Joan of Arc, by Carolyn Gage, the audience will discover the real Jeanne Romee, and through her story, the brutal institutional misogyny that women continue to face. Drawn from the detailed records of her two trials-john including hundreds of testimonies by all involved in her short life-The Second Coming finally tells the truth about the simple- minded, virginal peasant girl, who was anything but.

Jennifer Miller performs this one-woman show that explores not only the experience of "Joan of Arc," but relates that experience to contemporary women. Join her and discover the defiant, irreverent, clever, and unrepentant Jeanne, who remained unfailingly true to her own visions.
The CSI Stage Door Series, intimate arts experiences where both performers and audience members are on the stage itself, are designed to be thought-provoking and a little out of the ordinary in different ways - whether it's because of the intimate setting, the material performed, the way they are presented, or the collaborations involved.

TWIN FALLS- It is never too late to quit! From April 1st to April 29th, South Central Public Health District (SCPHD) is offering tobacco cessation classes every Monday at five p.m. in St. Luke's Hailey Clinic.

Tobacco causes a majority of the preventable death and disease in the United States. According to the CDC, every year more than 440,000 people die from smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke. Meanwhile, around 8.6 million people are living with serious illness as a result of smoking and/or use of smokeless tobacco.

"Our classes are designed to help people overcome their tobacco addiction and take control of their health," said Cody Orchard, Health Education Specialist. "These classes are just a start, if you want to quit and can't make it to a class call (208) 737-5968 and we will work around your schedule."

The Freedom From SmokingĀ® program was developed 35 years ago by the American Lung Association and is offered at no cost. The program has helped hundreds of thousands of people end their addiction to nicotine.

ChildAbuseWe All Can Play a Part in Preventing Child Maltreatment and Promoting Well-Being
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Twin Falls, Idaho-April 5, 2019-The College of Southern Idaho Head Start/Early Head Start Twin Falls center will be hosting our 9th annual "Pinwheels for Prevention" walk. The walk will take place on the CSI campus at noon. We will meet a classroom of children, staff, and parents at the bus stop in front of the Taylor building. Every year we do this walk with children, parents, staff and community members to support child abuse awareness and prevention. On April 5, please wear BLUE to show that you support national efforts to prevent Child Abuse.

Did you know?
Pinwheels are a symbol of the great childhoods that all children deserve! This April, we're bringing everyone together - from parents to business owners to elected officials -to recognize the fact that we all have a role to play in the healthy development of children!

Research shows that when parents possess six protective factors, the risk for neglect and abuse diminish and optimal outcomes for children, youth, and families are promoted. The six protective factors are:

* Nurturing and Attachment
* Knowledge of parenting and child/youth development
* Parental resilience
* Social connections
* Concrete supports for parents
* Social and emotional developmental well-being
