Tucker Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength Scholarship Made Possible by $4 Million Gift from Carolyn and Robert Tucker

This full scholarship, which will designate the recipients as Tucker Scholars, will be transformational for these students.The four-year education will be covered, including tuition, room and board.”

— Dr. Frank Bonner

BOILING SPRINGS, NC, UNITED STATES, April 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A couple known for their generosity is once again making an historic contribution to Gardner-Webb University. Carolyn and Robert Tucker have given a $4 million scholarship endowment to establish the “Tucker Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength Scholarship.”

Retired GWU President Dr. Frank Bonner worked with the Tucker family for several years in the formation of this gift. The scholarship name is based on Mark 12:29-31, a scripture in which Jesus gives the two most important commandments. The first one is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” The second is to “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

“This full scholarship, which will designate the recipients as Tucker Scholars, will be transformational for these students,” Bonner explained. “The cost of a student’s four-year education at GWU will be covered, including tuition, room and board.”

In 2010, the Tuckers announced the largest donation in school history, a $5 million gift, which helped to make a new student center a reality. At the dedication ceremony, Robert Tucker gave another half million donation in honor of former Vice President of Student Development Dr. Dee Hunt. The Tucker Student Center has quickly become the heart of campus life.

The Tuckers are the owners of Shoe Show, Inc. Founded in 1960 in Kannapolis, N.C., Shoe Show’s success has been based on a simple formula of providing quality products, service and value. The Tuckers’ daughter, Lisa, is a 1989 graduate and former volleyball player for Gardner-Webb. She has remained committed to the University for three decades and currently serves as a trustee. She serves the family business as president.

“Gardner-Webb is a unique and wonderful place,” says Tucker. “The faculty and staff have dedicated their lives to teaching and being role models and mentors. Their love for their profession is evident in the way they care about the students. They always place them at the center of the University. I experienced that myself and I know how valuable that is.”

When fully in place, the fund will provide for four Tucker Scholars, one in each class, every year in perpetuity. The first Tucker Scholar will be awarded Fall Semester 2020. The Tucker Scholars will be students with exceptional academic experience and drive, strong character and leadership potential, and a dedication to Christian faith and service.

“This vision is far more than exciting—it’s revolutionary,” affirmed Woody Fish, vice president for external affairs and advancement. “Only a few of the most elite institutions have scholarship programs of this magnitude. For the nation’s very top students our name will be competitive with the most prestigious schools the country has to offer.”

Located in the North Carolina foothills, Gardner-Webb University is a private, Christian, liberal arts university. Gardner-Webb emphasizes a strong student-centered experience and rigorous academics to prepare students to become effective servant-leaders within the global community.

Spectrem Investor Confidence Indices Dip in March As Global Economic Indicators Weaken

Spectrem March 2019 Investor Confidence Index

More Dovish Stance by U.S. Federal Reserve Negatively Affects Investor Sentiment

CHICAGO, USA, April 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With U.S. economic indicators showing new signs of weakness, and the European Union bracing for the possibility of a hard Brexit, U.S. investors signaled a more bearish sentiment in March, Spectrem Group reported today in its High Net Worth Insights newsletter. The Spectrem Millionaire Investor Confidence Index (SMICI®) dropped by five points in March to 6 following a significant jump in confidence reported in February, while the Spectrem Affluent Investor Confidence Index (SAICI®) remained in positive territory for the second consecutive month despite decreasing one point to 3. Both indices are now in neutral territory.

The monthly Spectrem Investor Confidence indices track changes in investment sentiment among the 17 MM households in America with more than $500,000 of investable assets (SAICI), and those with $1 MM or more (SMICI). March’s survey was fielded March 18-21, 2019, during which the Federal Reserve announced no plans to increase interest rates in 2019 due to a slowing U.S. economy.

During March, Millionaires expressed their intent to reduce their exposure to individual stocks, and plans to shift capital toward stock mutual funds, individual bonds and cash in the month ahead. Non-millionaires registered nearly opposite intentions across all categories, with the exception of real estate, where all investors expressed growing interest due to declining mortgage rates.

Spectrem’s Household Outlook, which measures investor sentiment based on four key household financial components, displayed similar mixed messages. The overall Outlook remained steady at 21.60, despite a drop in the outlook for household assets and company health. This was the result of a significant increase in the most reactionary of the four components of the Spectrem Outlook, outlook for the economy, which broke into positive territory for the first time in six months.

“Following significant stock market declines toward the end of 2018, the first two months of this year have marked a period of solid recovery for investors,” said Spectrem President George H. Walper, Jr. “In March, markets remained strong, with volatility lower than in previous months. Investors continue to focus on possible outcomes of negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union over Brexit. And, while they are not necessarily pessimistic about the future, it’s clear that signs of slowing economic growth and the recent decision by the Federal Reserve to pull back from planned interest rate hikes are causing them to exert greater caution until global economic indicators can provide more definitive direction.”

Charts, including a deeper analysis of the index and its methodology, are available upon request. Additional insights include:

Pro-In® minimiza el riesgo de infección en el aeropuerto y ayuda a solucionar el problema mundial de residuos plásticos.

Aeropuertos: Las bandejas de los controles de seguridad están altamente contaminadas con gérmenes y bacterias, según un estudio científico.

ESCHBORN, ALEMANIA, April 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — En los aeropuertos, las bandejas de los controles de seguridad son un riesgo para la salud, que hasta ahora había pasado inadvertido. Un estudio* científico reciente, ha demostrado un alto nivel de carga microbiana y viral, que muestra un riesgo significativo de infección y contribuye a la rápida propagación de gripe y otras epidemias. Sobre esta base, la Startup Pro-In® Protect Innovations, ha desarrollado un protector especial para minimizar el riesgo de infección procedente de las bandejas. Así mismo, el producto puede contribuir a reducir el impacto ambiental de los residuos plásticos a nivel mundial.

A finales de agosto de 2018, el Instituto Nacional de Salud y Bienestar de Finlandia, en cooperación con la Universidad de Nottingham (Inglaterra) y la Unión Europea, publicó un estudio* sobre la carga viral y de gérmenes en los aeropuertos. El nivel más alto de contaminación se encontró en las bandejas del punto de control de seguridad, donde se colocan el equipaje de mano y artículos personales para su inspección. Como resultado, las bandejas del control de seguridad son un riesgo clave para la salud y multiplicadores en epidemias y pandemias.

Los patógenos permanecen activos durante días en las bandejas y en las pertenencias personales. Hasta ahora, no se había expuesto ninguna solución. Por primera vez, la empresa alemana Pro-In® Protect Innovations, ha creado Pro-In® Protect Inlay: un protector especialmente desarrollado para las bandejas de los controles de seguridad. Se coloca sobre la bandeja del control y se desecha inmediatamente después de su uso, eliminando el contacto directo entre la superficie de la bandeja y las pertenencias personales, de este modo evitando la contaminación durante todo el control de seguridad.
Eckhard Melz de Pro-In® Protect Innovations: "La cubierta protectora proporciona una solución segura e higiénica que beneficia la salud de todos los involucrados en el control. De manera simple, minimiza el riesgo de transmisión de patógenos y suciedad".
Debido a la aplicación simple y rápida, no se retrasa el proceso del control de seguridad.

Actualmente se produce en Polietileno totalmente reciclable o procedente de residuos de plástico. Utilizando plástico reciclado de varias fuentes como los océanos, a parte de su reciclaje, se puede transformar el producto usado en una energia limpia, mediante una planta de valorización de residuos integrada.
Eckhard Melz: „Producimos un producto útil de los residuos plásticos para proteger nuestra salud, y luego lo desechamos ecológicamente, ayudando así a limpiar el planeta.”
La innovadora protección se adapta a las exigencias de los aeropuertos, aerolíneas, organizaciones con controles de seguridad y hoteles.
