Facebook58Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Capital Medical CenterCapital Medical Center is excited to announce installation later this month of a new, state-of-the-art 3D mammography machine that will provide improved patient comfort and superior diagnostic accuracy in an effort to contribute to the breast health of our community.Photo courtesy: Capital Medical CenterThe installation is scheduled to begin December 27 and be available and open to patients starting on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 at the Capital Mammography Center (3920 Capital Mall Dr. SW, Ste. 401).During the installation downtime, breast ultrasound and bone density offerings at the Center will be unaffected.The new machine is the only FDA-approved 3D mammography machine that delivers at the same low dose as current 2D full-field digital mammography, resulting in an exceptionally sharp and detailed picture for breast cancer detection and diagnosis.It also features elements made to be inviting and more comfortable than 2D traditional machines.“This machine was designed by women for women,” notes Mardi Folsom, Lead Mammography/Ultrasonographer, Capital Mammography at Capital Medical Center.“It’s designed to pick up smaller cancers more efficiently that can lead to better health for our mothers, daughters and sisters.”3D mammography exams are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, and also help decrease the number of women asked to return for additional testing.Traditional 2D mammography may feature overlapping tissue – which is a leading reason why small breast cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks. A 3D method of imaging can greatly reduce the tissue overlap effect.This installation is part of Capital Medical Center’s continuing commitment to superior breast cancer detection and has the potential to increase screening volume and compliance for the countless women who have reported avoiding regular mammograms due in large part to the fear of discomfort associated with breast compression.Folsom reminds that one in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.“Early detection is huge,” Folsom adds. “Mammograms are a critical part of maintaining a healthy life, to detect cancers in the breast at an early stage when it’s easier to treat.“We are all on this journey together to tackle breast cancer,” she says. “We are in it for ourselves, our friends, our sisters, moms, daughters and our future.”To schedule a 3D mammogram at Capital’s Mammography Center, call us at (360) 704-4750. Walk-ins are also welcome.

By John BurtonRED BANK – There was a lot of sparring Monday night over a proposed hotel, as lawyers representing opposing sides squared off and even Planning Board members offered differing views regarding public safety and the project.As the borough planning board continued to hear the application for RBank Capital, LLC to construct a six-story, 76-room Hampton Inn and Suites at the borough’s Highway 35 border, it was confronted with a lawyer representing an entity offering a formal objection to the plan.Red Bank attorney Ron Gasiorowski – a familiar face for land use boards, regularly representing objectors, and a familiar name in the context of this project – announced he was representing a limited liability company that opposed the hotel. Gasiorowski said his client of record is CT95CT07, 200 Park Ave., LLC.That enigmatic announcement was immediately challenged by attorney Martin A. McGann Jr., representing RBank Capital, who demanded more specifics about the clients and their ability to legally oppose the project.Gasiorowski relented. “I acknowledge they are hotel owners,” he told McGann and the board.“Here we go again,” McGann countered.Back in 2012, Gasiorowski – after being pressured by the borough Zoning Board of Adjustment attorney – announced he was representing Tinton Falls Lodging Realty, LLC, and its principals, brothers Carey and Doren Tajfel. The brothers own and operate Doubletree Hotel by Hilton, a franchised hotel at 700 Hope Road, Tinton Falls. At that time Gasiorowski also represented a borough resident opposing the project on environmental grounds and because of the size and scope of what was proposed; but Gasiorowski conceded in 2012 Tinton Falls Lodging Realty was paying the legal fees. Gasiorowski had filed two separate lawsuits challenging this project, with the developer eventually withdrawing the application.“I represent to you it is the same objector,” McGann charged. And Gasiorowski conceded there is some overlap of principals in the LLCs.McGann fired back about this announcement, arguing, as he had four years ago that “out of town objectors don’t have jurisdiction” and legal standing to object under state land use law, which is backed up by case law.“There is a difference between having standing and having an interest,” Gasiorowski maintained. And his clients, CT95CT07, 200 Park Ave., LLC, have recently rented office space in Red Bank, thus establishing an interest in the project and allowing them to voice objection.The office space is in the Broad Street building where Gasiorowski has his law offices. McGann alleged leasing office space was only a ploy to allow the objections.“I would not appear before this board unless I was comfortable,” with his client’s position, Gasiorowski offered, adding he had never seen the clients’ lease.Gasiorowski proceeded to question the developer’s professional planner about technical aspects of the project as well as environmental considerations of the site and about traffic concerns.Traffic concerns were on the minds of board members, too. Specifically, the hotel’s plans to allow traffic traveling north on Highway 35 to make a direct left hand turn into the site.The hotel would be built on a long-vacant gas station property on the southern end of the Coopers Bridge, overlooking the Swimming/Navesink River, at the Highway 35/Rector Place intersection.McGann said the developer is seeking state Department of Transportation (DOT) approval to allow the left-hand turn in a designated lane, across two lanes of southbound traffic, with the state yet to make its decision.“The DOT has sole jurisdiction over this,” McGann insisted.That’s a matter to be determined, suspected board attorney Michael Leckstein, believing the board has considerable input in that decision. “I don’t think power is taken away from us.”“I remember when there was a gas station there,” board member Guy Maretta said. “I remember the near collisions,” from traffic entering and leaving the site.“We want smart growth,” with development, Maretta added. “It’s not smart to put the public at risk.”Board member Stanley Sickels replied that without a highway dividing barrier at that point “people are going to make that turn anyway,” which is more dangerous without a designated lane.“We have the ability to do it right, to keep people safe,” and should design it that way, Maretta countered.“Let’s let the DOT make its decision,” McGann advised, believing the board could approve the plan contingent on the state’s final verdict.Larry Cohen, Old Bridge, is the managing principal of RBank Capital. He told the board on Monday the franchised Hampton Inn would be “looking to cater to the transient business traveler” who would likely stay for a couple days. There would be no bar or restaurant, serving only a continental breakfast. The site would have an outdoor pool and Cohen planned to construct a boardwalk along the riverfront for the length of the property for public access to the river, as required by borough ordinance.Given the standing 3 percent borough hotel tax, the Hampton Inn would contribute approximately $75-$80,000 annually to the borough, in addition to the property tax, Cohen said.Professional planner Roy K. DeBoer said the location had been a hotel, the Standler’s recreation center, dating back to the early 20th century. It had been a gas station from the 1940s, DeBoer said.The board will again hear the application on Feb. 4, and Leckstein asked to see the lease for the borough office space taken by Gasiorowski’s clients.
All 27 summer interns at iCIMS, a software tech company, gather for the company wide “College T-Shirt Day.” iCIMS actively recruits New Jersey college students in an attempt to keep tech talent in the state.By Matt LoboscoNew Jersey students seeking to gain valuable internship experience close to home can now do so at one of the fastest growing companies in the tech industry.iCIMS, a company that sells talent acquisition software which other companies use to recruit job candidates, has created an internship program with the intention of bringing the best talent in New Jersey to the company. All 27 students interning for the company this summer are New Jersey residents and the majority of them attend schools in New Jersey, including Rutgers University, Monmouth University, TCNJ and Stevens Institute of Technology.Some interns also attend out-of-state schools such as Lehigh University, The University of Pittsburgh and The University of South Carolina. In total, nine schools are represented by this summer’s interns.“We are focused on recruiting and keeping New Jersey talent in New Jersey,” said to Vice President of Talent Irene DeNigris.Interns are placed in a variety of departments ranging from marketing to software development. According to DeNigris, the company typically looks for students majoring in areas such as statistics, computer science, business, marketing and communications.Responsibilities of each intern vary from department to department. At the outset of the program, each intern is assigned a project devoted to the department he or she will be working in. As the end of the summer approaches, interns will be presenting their projects to their team as well as leadership within the department. Examples of projects for interns this summer include working with the company’s content strategy team and constructing email campaigns to send out to prospects to engage them about the company’s software products.In an effort to prevent New Jersey’s best intern and entry-level talent from taking other job opportunities in Silicon Valley and at other tech companies, iCIMS is very aggressive in its recruitment of college students within the state. As the tech industry continues to grow rapidly across the country, iCIMS wants to offer great opportunities to New Jersey students within their home state.“We see big tech brands as our main competitors,” said DeNigris on the race for recruiting young entry-level talent.iCIMS gains access to students by building strong relationships with the top colleges and universities in the state. The company reaches out to students of these schools through career fairs, information sessions and on-campus interviewing.The company’s internship program is primarily for rising juniors and seniors at the undergraduate level. However, there are opportunities for Masters’ degree students in the company’s technology labs department. The summer internship program lasts for 10-12 weeks with all students starting at the same time. Internships are also available in the fall and spring, but positions in the fall are limited to summer interns who continue with the company while in school.All interns are paid and work out of the company’s main headquarters in Matawan. However, iCIMS will be opening a second headquarters in the Bell Works building in Holmdel later this year as the company looks to create more jobs.Kaitlin Anilonis, a rising senior at the University of South Carolina who is interning in the company’s corporate communications department this summer, said her experience at iCIMS has been “extremely valuable.” She said her daily responsibilities as an intern include a wide range of tasks such as drafting materials to secure media coverage, drafting blog content, crafting internal announcements for employees and creating and reacting to posts on the company’s social media platforms.Anilonis added that the atmosphere at iCIMS is very positive and that everyone is eager to help interns complete their projects and help them learn as much as possible during the program.“Everyone is hardworking and friendly, which makes it a great environment to work in,” Anilonis said.This article was first published in the July 13-20, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.

ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 24, 2016)– Five-year-old gelding Alert Bay heads a field of 11 in Saturday’s $100,000 Sensational Star Stakes for California-bred or sired older horses going 6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s hillside turf course.Easily the most successful in the Sensational Star by earnings alone with over a $1,000,000 to his credit, Alert Bay, trained by Blaine Wright will be seeking his first win down the hill. Dominant over Santa Anita’s turf course in recent years, Alert Bay has run in the money in six out of seven lifetime tries over the grass here in Arcadia, with four wins.A winner of the Grade II City of Hope (turf) Mile on Sept. 27, 2015 at Santa Anita, ‘AB’ went on to run seventh in the Grade II Seabiscuit Handicap in late November over Del Mar’s turf course after winning up north in the Bay Area at odds of 1-5 in a turf allowance. He then went on to run sixth in his first-ever try down the hillside in the Grade II Daytona on Dec. 26, though beaten only a length.Alert Bay’s latest try over the turf, when favored at 2-1, resulted in a second to What a View in the Cal Cup Turf Classic at Santa Anita Jan. 30 going 1 1/8 miles. With two bullet works serving as his most recent over Golden Gate’s Tapeta surface up at his home base in Berkeley, CA, Alert Bay looks ready to fire.“He does quite well at Santa Anita, he really likes this place,” said Wright following his win in the City of Hope. “I’ve never had such a versatile, hard-hitting horse as him; he can run on any surface. Obviously, he’s best on turf but he can run on dirt and even Tapeta.”By City Zip, out of the Dushyantor mare Hickory, Alert Bay is owned by Peter Redekop of British Columbia and is 23-11-5-2 overall with $1,028,235 in earnings.The complete field for the Sensational Star, to be run as the 6th race on a nine-race card Saturday, with jockeys and weights in post position order: Image of Joplin, Agapito Delgadillo, 122; Solid Wager, Victor Espinoza, 124; Aotearoa, Drayden Van Dyke, 120; Pay the Fine, Mario Gutierrez, 122; Lucky J Lane, Santiago Gonzalez, 120; McHeat, Fernando Perez, 122; Forest Chatter, Mike Smith, 124; Richard’s Boy, Flavien Prat, 122; Alert Bay, Martin Garcia, 124; Boozer, Gary Stevens, 120; Poshsky, Joe Talamo, 124.
JIM CASSIDY, SI SAGE, WINNER: “I thought it was a pretty fast dog (with regard to him telling Mike to ‘walk the dog’ on the front end before the race) as I watched. In between being on the outside and going down the hill, that forty-seven half made me think we might be in trouble.“If he didn’t impress anybody today, shame on them. He certainly impressed me.“I don’t think there’s any problem with him, no matter the distance. He’s just a very honest horse. Darrell (Vienna, former trainer of Si Sage) told me when he retired that this is a very nice horse and he couldn’t have been more right.“Without being a jerk, it brings tears to your eyes to win a race named after such a great man, Charlie Whittingham. It brought a tear to my eye.” JED COHEN (RED BARON’S BARN), OWNER OF SI SAGE, WINNER: “I couldn’t believe the morning line today (15-1). He won a race here last year at the same distance (three starts back, The Last Tycoon, on April 25, 2015) and I thought he beat a better group of horses than he was facing today…It’s nice to have a nice horse and for him to be able to show it.” ALONSO QUINONEZ, PATENTAR, SECOND: “I saved all the ground and I decided ‘If I’m gonna win it, I’ve got to swing out and take a shot.’ I’m real happy with the way he ran.” TRAINER QUOTES NOTES: Winning owners are Jed Cohen who races as Red Baron’s Barn, LLC of Los Angeles, CA, Rancho Temescal and Vayaconsuerte, LLC. JOCKEY QUOTES MIKE SMITH, SI SAGE, WINNER: “Well Jim told me he was going to run a big race today. ‘He hasn’t had a big effort in a while but he’s going to give you one today.’“He got carried out a little bit when we were crossing the dirt and we went a bit quicker than I wanted to go but in doing so he was well within himself, was comfortable, very relaxed and sometimes you’ve just got to let a fast horse be fast.”
