Distracted Driving Awareness Month in the city of bayonne

Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis issued a proclamation declaring October to be Distracted Driving Awareness Month in the City of Bayonne. This presentation was one of many events organized by safe driving advocate Pam O’Donnell.  Four years ago, her husband and daughter died in an automobile crash.  That tragedy has compelled her to speak out before a variety of audiences about the importance of safe driving and the consequences of highway deaths. She has spoken to audiences at churches, schools, and corporations.  The proclamation refers to public education programs sponsored by the National Safety Council and the Catch You Later Foundation.

learn a language at Hudson County Community College Continuing EDUCATION

Learning a second language offers benefits that go far beyond just broader communication and crossing language and cultural barriers. Although we are all familiar with some of the more common reasons why bilingualism is advantageous, some other surprising advantages are rarely explored. Learning a second language increases cognitive ability according to recent research. It also enhances soft skills, which are a combination of people, social, and communication skills. Moreover, a second language usually increases mastery of the native language as well as a renewed appreciation for it. Certain World Languages predominate today’s necessary technologies such as the internet as well as industries and agencies.

A second language offers marketability and professional development. The Continuing Education Department at Hudson County Community College  welcomes you to join our language institute where you have the opportunity to learn the basics of a new language and expand your view on cultures.
