Gainesville Pediatric Dentistry Takes a Polar Dip to Help Children

Drs. Arshia Shingler and My Tran plunged into cold waters for the Virginia Polar Dip in Reston, Va. at the Reston Community Center in Lake Anne, benefitting Camp Sunshine, a retreat in Maine for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. All proceeds help send children from the DC area to Camp Sunshine. To date, the Virginia Polar Dip has raised more than $73,000. The 2011 year, our goal is to raise $75,000 which will allow 37 families from the VA/MD/DC area to come to Camp Sunshine. For more information, go to www.freezinforareason.com.

Bridging the Generation Gap in Egypt and the American Workplace

The historical transfer of power in Egypt has seen the departure of an entrenched 82-year-old dictator and a movement toward a democratically elected government where young Egyptians will have a major voice in politics and policies of the future.  A major key to a successful transition that will allow Egypt to move forward as a stable, innovative nation lies in respect and understanding between generations.

The same is true with American businesses.

Innovation is the intersection of the past and present that leads to the future.  That’s why it is so important that business leaders publicly acknowledge the contribution of each generation, applaud the unique strengths brought to the table by workers of different ages, and encourage everyone to share their viewpoints as a way to make a strong team even stronger.
