If you want to do business on the internet, there are a number of options to choose from; so many, in fact, that it can be bewildering. The choices range from build-it-yourself web sites to fee-based global marketplaces like Amazon and Shopify. If your product is handmade or unique, there are also special platforms -- like Etsy -- that focus specifically on crafters. The options are numerous, and the benefits of each to your business are sometimes unclear.  Presenter is Jeff Hecht, President and CEO, Aronson Hecht Agency.  Picking an eCommerce Platform is an on-line event and requires registration on the SCORE Northeast New Jersey website.

Substitute Single Squatch Trail Race
Mar 14
NY NJ Trail Conference
Mahwah, NJ 07430

Sunday, March 14 at 10:00 am

NY NJ Trail Conference

Storytime: traditionally we have our two-day Double Squatch trail party the second weekend in March at Stokes State Forest.... Unfortunately the NJ State Parks are not currently issuing permits for events so we are going with Plan B and hosting this new "substitute" single day event! Join us at the Ramapo Valley County Reservation in Mahwah NJ on Sunday March 14 2021 for the "Substitute Single Squatch"! Come squatch 5.5 miles or 11 miles with us! We are proudly supporting our friends at the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference with this event! As always our trail parties are open to runners and hikers of all ages and paces! RACE DETAILS In order to comply with the current NJ Executive Order for outdoor gathering limits we are doing four waves of 25 runners/hikers. Check out the various start times and check-in times below. All runners/hikers need to park in the main parking lot for the Ramapo Reservation and walk over to the NYNJTC Headquarters where the start/finish and check-in area is. Please allow a few minutes to walk from the parking lot to the Trail Conference Headquarters. After you finish the race please grab some snacks from the aid station and then head out to your cars so we can avoid any large group congregating at the finish line. 10am 11 miler: check-in between 9:30am-9:45am 10:30am 5.5 miler: check-in between 10:05am-10:20am 11am 11 miler: check-in between 10:35am-10:50am 11:30am 5.5 miler: check-in between 11:15am-11:20am **In the event that Governor Murphy increase the outdoor gathering limitations we will consolidate start times. We will communicate any changes with you via email and by updating this registration page. All runners/hikers will take home a handcrafted wood medal as well as a swag item from the Squatch Shop (choice of buff mug car magnet hat etc). The top 3 male and female runners will receive a handcrafted wood award from the Squatch Shop as well as some delicious baked goods from the shop of one of our club members Charlotte Aschoff "Good Eats By Char". COURSE DESCRIPTION The race will start/finish at the New York New Jersey Trail Conference Headquarters. All runners/hikers need to park at in the main parking lot for the Reservation and then walk over to HQ using the footpath. We will have a large flag at the start of the footpath so you know which way to go. The race course is a 5.5 mile loop. 5.5 milers will complete the loop once and 11 milers will complete the loop twice. The course has 900 feet of elevation gain - this is NOT a flat course! There is a 550 ft climb over from mile 1-1.9 - so be ready for that! You will be rewarded with some great views and the rest of the course has a few more rolling hills before descending back down. If there is still snow on the trail please come into the race expecting your mileage to be slower than usual. From the NYNJTC Headquarters follow the singletrack trail to the start of the Yellow Trail that will lead you over the foot bridge. Bear right to go halfway around Scarlet Oak Pond (this is the same way our Onesiefest 5K loop goes). When you get halfway around the pond you will turn right on the Yellow Trail. Here's where the fun begins - get ready for the biggest climb of the loop. You will climb about 550 feet between mile 1 and 1.9 (woo hoo!). Your hard work will be rewarded with some awesome views along the Yellow Trail specifically "Cactus Ledge" and "Ridge Overlook". You will stay on the Yellow Trail until you hit MacMillan Reservoir. At this junction turn right on the Pink Trail to go around the top of the Reservoir. Your next turn will be a right on the Red Trail. Follow the Red Trail until it ends at the opposite end of the Reservoir where you will make a right on the Blue Trail which then quickly joins the Yellow Trail. Turn right on the Yellow Trail and follow it all the way back to Scarlet Oak Pond and back over the footbridge returning to the singletrack that will take you back to the NYNJTC Headquarters. Check out the elevation profile in the picture gallery above. You can view the 5.5 mile loop on Strava using this link: https://www.strava.com/routes/2795024771194215612 HEALTH PRECAUTIONS Our squatchtastic "Dream Team Extreme" has been tirelessly working out all of the details to make this trail party safe fun and an all-around squatchy time. Here are the details you need to know before you register for this trail party! - Waves are limited to 25 runners per wave start time. - Although we do not anticipate this in the event that the county pulls the permit we will give all pre-registered runners/hikers a 100% credit to any 2021 Sassquad event. Please note this means that we are not offering refunds on the non-refundable registration fee. - Runners/hikers will use a mask during check-in at the start of the race and at the aid station. All runners will need to carry a mask/buff with them and should use them anytime you cannot stay 6 feet apart from other people. - Please come to the start/finish during your assigned check-in time (listed above). After the race ends and you gather your belongings and snacks from the aid station please head back to the main parking lot so we can avoid any large gatherings at our race headquarters. VIRTUAL OPTION If you are unable to travel to the event or would prefer not to participate in-person we have a virtual option for you! Get out to your favorite trail (or road treadmill backyard etc!) to complete the 5.5M or 11M! We will mail you the handcrafted wood medal shortly after you sign up for the event.

New York of the 1850s was a time when the Irish fleeing the famine in their home country arrived in great numbers only to settle in ethnic ghettos.  With no skills or education, little English, and of Catholic faith in a Protestant culture they faced discrimination for the available factory jobs.  Many children became homeless and worked as shoeshine boys.  Horatio Alger wrote novels about these boys and their rise from humble backgrounds to lives of comfort through hard work, determination, and honesty.  Rick Feingold teaches American Business History at Bergen Community College and holds a degree in History from Rutgers University.  This is a Zoom event so register online (Don't forget to give us your email address).  Registration will close 24 hours before the event and we'll send you the Zoom meeting number, password, and URL meeting link at that time

NY NJ Trail Conference

Before you head out for your favorite hike - we want to help put your best foot forward with the fitness industry's newest crave with a ground movement workout! Ground movement: Ignored by most over the age of five find out why a cohesive practice of small ground movements is the next big thing in the fitness industry. You can do these wherever you have some space on the ground. And if you practice them often they’ll improve not only your ability to sit and move on the ground but also your mobility flexibility and strength as well. Ground mobility is so much more than just “mobility drills” or anyone movement pattern – and today I’m going to teach you all about it. We take these movements for granted only to realize how much trouble they give us when we really pay attention to our ability to perform a wide variety of such ground movements not just effectively but efficiently. The awesome thing is you don’t need to be James Bond to perform at a high level in a wide variety of life situations from every day to more adventurous (or life-threatening) tasks. You just need to understand its greater practical importance and how to build your skillset through consistent practice. About our instructor: Dr. Phil Lombardo has extensive experience in the care of both sports injuries and general musculoskeletal injuries for patients of all ages. In 2007 Phil joined the top one percent of the Doctor of Physical Therapy in the country by becoming an APTA Board Certified Specialist in Sports (SCS).

His expert knowledge as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) a Sports Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) and a Certified Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) guarantee his patients the highest quality of care. It brings Phil great joy as he shares MovNat a physical education system for developing real-world capability through natural movement with his patients and now to the public. His journey led him to become a MovNat certified instructor hosting the first-ever MovNat Elements Workshop in NJ and then becoming the first-ever licensed MovNat facility in NJ.

Session 2: Using Autosomal DNA for 18th and 19th Century Mysteries Even though our 18th and 19th century ancestors have been dead for decades their DNA still survives in their descendants. Learn how to use autosomal DNA to attack and potentially solve genealogical mysteries and brick walls for ancestors who were born or lived in the 1800s 1700s and beyond. Session 3: Using DNA Painter to Map and Analyze Your Autosomal DNA DNA Painter is an easy-to-use third-party tool that enables you to assign segments of DNA shared with cousins to a map of your chromosomes. Together we’ll look at this powerful new tool and how you can use it in your research. Session 4: Evaluating a Genealogical Conclusion Including DNA Someone tells you that they’ve proven their connection to a genealogical ancestor using DNA but have they really proven it? Did they avoid the known pitfalls? Together we will discuss the most common pitfalls when using DNA evidence and propose the minimum requirements for a genealogical proof comprising DNA. There are a limited number of “seats” for this event. By presenter’s request this event will NOT be recorded. ——— Blaine T.

Made in Jersey will feature a series of New Jersey based performing artists sharing new works-in-progress. After each broadcast, audiences will be able to join the artist in a live chat where they can askquestions. Vaiśravaṇa, commonly known as Kubera, is the Buddhist, Jain, and Hindu deity of wealth in the form of natural resources, currency, and commerce. In some depictions, he is the pot-bellied, self-serving, dark-skinned ruler of the Yakshas – an indigenous tribe of magical healers and shamans coveted for their knowledge of Earth’s secrets but feared by “respectable” society. In others, he is the radiant, noble, golden-skinned guardian of the north and official treasurer to the gods. His shapeshifting in religious art and literature is reflective of South Asian society’s framing of good and evil around wealth, caste, and complexion. His endurance in collective consciousness symbolizes mankind’s relentless pursuit of wealth in an era dominated by consumerism and driven by instant gratification. These themes will be explored in three acts, each of which is dedicated to a specific South Asian classical dance style, geographic region, and time period. This solo work by Kiran Rajagopalan has been commissioned by Prakriti Dance and will premiere in full at their “Festival of Solos” on October 20, 2019. The first act, performed in the Kandyan dance
