4ocean Named The “Agent of Change” at 48th Annual SURFER Awards

4ocean Named “Agent of Change” at 48th Annual SURFER Awards

4ocean, an ocean cleanup company headquartered in Boca Raton, received the Surfer Magazine “Agent of Change” at the 48th Annual SURFER Awards held in Oahu, Hawaii. The award is given to a group or individual who uses surfing to better the lives of others.

Surfers Andrew Cooper and Alex Schulze launched sustainability company 4ocean in January 2017, just a few short years after a surfing trip to Bali gave them the insights into the problem of plastic and trash littering our oceans and waterways. To date, 4ocean has already pulled over 2.3 million pounds of trash. The company funds its efforts through the sale of post-consumer recycled bracelets, reusable bottles, and cleanup combos. Each purchase removes a minimum of one pound of trash from oceans and coastlines.

“Two-plus million pounds of plastic pulled is just the beginning of a lifetime commitment to protecting the future for our environment,” said 4ocean co-founder Alex Schulze. “Seven-days-a-week for 365 days-a-year, teams of 4ocean full-time captains and crews are dedicating to cleaning river mouths, oceans and coastlines, both above and below the water.”

“With over 16 billion pounds of plastic entering the world’s oceans annually, 4ocean is committed to making a difference. Pulling plastic one pound at a time is our goal as we expand operations from the U.S. to Bali, Indonesia, Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and other high impact areas,” said 4ocean co-founder Andrew Cooper.

4ocean’s business model is creating new, more sustainable economies around the world by paying fisherman to collect plastic and trash from the ocean instead of fish. It’s changing the way people think about the problem of plastic pollution.

A for-profit business, 4ocean gives ocean plastic a monetary value while incentivizing people all over the world to change their behavior.

Here Are The 2019 SAG Awards Nominations….

NEW YORK (AP) — “A Star Is Born” led nominations for the 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards with four nods including best ensemble on Wednesday, firmly establishing Bradley Cooper’s romantic revival as this year’s Academy Awards front runner.

In nominations announced in West Hollywood, Calif., the actors guild — one of the most predictive bellwethers of the Oscars — threw cold water on the awards campaigns of numerous contenders while elevating others. But “A Star Is Born” fared the best of all, landing nominations for Cooper (best male actor), Lady Gaga (best female actor) and Sam Elliott (best supporting male actor).

The other nominees for the group’s top award, best ensemble, were: “Black Panther,” ”Bohemian Rhapsody,” ”BlacKkKlansman” and “Crazy Rich Asians.”

That category is the most closely watched because only once in the last two decades has the eventual Oscars best picture winner not been nominated for best ensemble at the SAG Awards. The one aberration, though, was last year, when Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” overcame the SAG omission on its way to winning best picture.

Unless a new trend is forming, that’s worrisome news for Oscar hopefuls like “Vice,” Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic (which led last week’s Golden Globe nominations); Alfonso Cuaron’s Netflix drama “Roma” (the overwhelming choice of critics groups); and the 1962 road trip “Green Book.”

“Vice” still scored SAG nods for Christian Bale and Amy Adams, just as “Green Book” won nominations for Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali.

But “Roma” was shut out entirely, as was Damien Chazelle’s Neil Armstrong drama “First Man” and Barry Jenkins’ Harlem love story “If Beale Street Could Talk.” Most expected Regina King of “Beale Street” to be among the supporting female actor nominees.

Instead, Wednesday’s nominations gave an unlikely boost to “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the Freddie Mercury biopic that has been a hit with audiences but was slammed by critics. Despite being widely viewed as a riveting one-man show by Rami Malek, the film ended up nominated for its ensemble cast. Malek was also nominated for best actor.

The screen actors appeared to favor big ticket sellers over smaller independent ensembles.

Ryan Coogler’s comic-book sensation “Black Panther” also landed a nomination for its stunt ensemble team. Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman” scored nods for both John David Washington and Adam Driver. “Crazy Rich Asians” co-star Awkwafina, a presenter Wednesday morning, has the unusual pleasure of announcing the hit romantic comedy’s ensemble nomination. “It was all me,” she joked.

Yorgos Lanthimos’ period romp “The Favourite” failed to crack best ensemble, but its three leads — Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone — were all nominated, as expected. Stone added a second nod for her performance in the Netflix miniseries “Maniac.”

Emily Blunt also scored two nominations herself: one for her lead performance in “Mary Poppins Returns” and one for her supporting role in “A Quiet Place.” The other best female performance nominees alongside Blunt, Lady Gaga and Colman were Glenn Close (“The Wife”) and Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”)

Blunt’s nomination for “A Quiet Place” was among the nominations’ many surprises, as was Margot Robbie’s supporting turn as Queen Elizabeth in “Mary Queen of Scots.”

Timothee Chalamet (“Call Me By Your Name”) scored his second straight SAG nomination for his supporting performance in the addiction drama “Beautiful Boy.” Rounding out the category alongside Ali, Driver and Elliott was Richard E. Grant for “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”

Usually, about 15 of the SAG’s 20 individual acting nominees line up exactly with the eventual Oscar field.

In television categories, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Ozark” led with four nominations each. “Barry,” ”GLOW,” ”The Handmaid’s Tale” and “The Kominsky Method” trailed close behind with three nominations each.

Up for best ensemble in comedy are “Atlanta,” ”Barry,” ”GLOW,” ”The Kominsky Method” and “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel.” The drama series ensemble nominees went to: “The Americans,” ”Better Call Saul,” ”The Haidmaid’s Tale,” ”Ozark” and “This Is Us.”

Though Netflix was nearly shut out on the film side (its lone nomination was for the stunt ensemble of “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”), it dominated the television categories with 15 total nods.

The SAG Awards will be held Jan. 27 and broadcast live by TNT and TBS. This year’s show will honor Alan Alda with the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award.

The ceremony will be hosted by actress Megan Mullally, the guild announced Wednesday. The previous SAG Awards, when Kristen Bell emceed, was the first time the broadcast was hosted.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex Salutes Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller at Fashion Awards

LONDON — Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex took Fashion Award-goers in London by surprise when she took to the Royal Albert Hall stage on Monday evening to present Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller, the designer behind her wedding dress, with the British women’s wear designer of the year award.
“It’s such a pleasure to be here, celebrating British fashion and British designers in my new home of the U.K. I’m seeing many familiar faces, many of you I’ve known for quite a while,” said Markle, who wore an elegant one-shoulder Givenchy gown and clutched onto her baby bump throughout her speech.
She spoke about women empowering each other through the clothes they wear and fashion’s shifting culture: “It was cool to be cruel, now it’s cool to be kind,” she said.

“When you choose to wear a certain designer, we’re not just a reflection of their creativity and their vision but we’re also an extension of their values,” added the new royal, lauding Keller’s “creativity and incredible kindness.”
In turn, a very shocked Keller thanked Markle for trusting her in such an important moment in her life.

Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Awards $164,000 in Grant Funding to Improve Public Health

HONOLULU — Kaiser Permanente has awarded $ 164,000 in community benefit grant funding to community health initiatives in Hawaii. The grant recipients are working to improve public health with a focus on serving low-income and vulnerable populations.

“At Kaiser Permanente of Hawaii, we’re committed to building healthier communities across the state,” said Dave Underriner, president of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals of Hawaii. “We’re proud to support organizations and initiatives working toward the same goal to improve public health and access to care for everyone in our community.”

Hawaii Appleseed Center for Law and Economic Justice received $ 50,000 to further establish the Hawaii Budget and Policy Center, a valuable community resource that provides state poverty reports and analyzes budget and tax policies that address poverty and inequity in the state. The center will research and analyze key policy issues, with specific focus on policies that address health and well-being for low- and moderate-income households, in order to improve efforts by service providers, lawmakers and government officials. The center’s work has the potential to impact more than 150,000 Hawaii residents living in poverty.

Boys & Girls Club Hawaii received $ 40,000 to provide comprehensive mentoring and community programming to promote healthy eating and active lifestyles. Through the grant, Boys & Girls Club Hawaii will partner with organizations to provide learning and leadership opportunities through sports clinics and leagues, culinary arts programs and even business training to 400 at-risk youth on Oahu.

Hawaii Primary Care Association received $ 40,000 to improve access to mental and behavioral health services within community health centers. The majority of patients served by community health centers live below the federal poverty level and 14 percent are uninsured. The grant will help build capacity for community health centers to screen, provide interventions and offer referrals to treat substance abuse and other behavioral health issues, giving more than 11,000 patients a network of support and services.

Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center received $ 34,000 to expand its school-based health services program. The grant will support two school-based health centers at Waianae High School and Waianae Intermediate School, which provide acute care, immunizations, physical exams and basic medications such as antibiotics to a large population of Native Hawaiian students, regardless of insurance status. School-based health centers also increase access to behavioral health services, addressing a critical need for greater support for adolescents facing bullying, stress, violence, depression and suicidal thoughts. More than 3,800 adolescents living in Waianae are expected to benefit.

Following a special video homage to the legendary Queen of Soul that focused on the artist’s long history as a host, performer and winner at the AMAs, Knight took the stage to perform Franklin’s drawn-out interpretation of “Amazing Grace.” Then, minister and gospel singer McClurkin relieved Knight to perform “Climb Higher Mountains,” which was used as the recessional song at her funeral. 

From there, gospel legend Winans delivered a rousing rendition of “Mary Don’t You Weep,” followed by R&B/jazz singer Ledisi belting an invigorating “How I Got Over.” Contemporary gospel duo Mary Mary closed things out with a backing ensemble-assisted “Old Landmark.”

Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Awards $119,000 in Grants to Support Health Care Workforce and Economic Development

HONOLULU — Kaiser Permanente Hawaii has awarded $ 119,000 in community benefit grant funding to three nonprofits seeking to promote economic opportunity and support workforce development throughout the state.

“Kaiser Permanente is committed to addressing the shortage of health care workers and promoting economic opportunities in Hawaii,” said Dave Underriner, president of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals, Hawaii Region. “Supporting Hawaii’s health care sector, and helping small businesses grow and create jobs are among many ways we are committed to a thriving Hawaii.”

Hawaii Community College (via UH Foundation) was awarded $ 69,333 for the school’s nursing program to help address health care labor shortages on Hawaii Island. Ninety percent of the school’s nursing graduates — approximately 40 students per year — go on to work in health care positions on Hawaii Island, addressing a critical need for care providers in rural areas. The grant will be used to purchase a simulation mannequin that provides essential clinical education and hands-on skills learning to maintain accreditation for the nursing program.

Patsy T. Mink Center for Business and Leadership, in partnership with Mana Up (via YWCA Oahu), received $ 35,000 to promote economic opportunity, counseling and training for locally owned small businesses, with a specific focus on women’s leadership development. The nonprofits will offer a 10-month professional development course for 11 emerging women leaders, as well as a 12-week accelerator program for 20 local small businesses.

Hawaii Hospital Education and Research Foundation received $ 15,000 to expand scholarships for health care students in Hawaii. A shortage of providers in primary care, specialty care, mental health and oral health care, especially on neighbor islands, affects the health of the entire state. HHERF plans to offer scholarships ranging from $ 500 to $ 2,000 to 15 or more Hawaii health care students pursuing degrees in nursing, medicine, physical and occupational therapy, certified nursing assistant, medical assistant, pharmacy and health care IT.
