HSCC Testimonial: Matthew Clark (Detroit, 2008-2010)

BDPA Detroit is a historically strong chapter when it comes to the national high school computer competition (HSCC) championships. In fact, there is only one chapter (Southern Minnesota) with more championships than Detroit. One reason for the success in Motor City is the strong coaches and students in the program. One of the strong students over the past three years (2008-2010) has been Matthew Clark.

Matthew shared his thoughts on his HSCC career with us.

Happy Birthday: George Williams, Past National BDPA President

Please join us in wishing a wonderful birthday to our past national president -- George Williams. I've known George since I first joined BDPA back in the late 1980s. He was a powerful figure in the BDPA Cleveland chapter before he set a record for the longest-tenured national president in BDPA history.

BETF Executive Director Wayne Hicks Voted One of the Top 50 Amazing Tech Tastemakers

I just learned from the folks over at Black Web 2.0 that I'm one of the Top 50 Amazing Tech Tastemakers.

You may recall that we told you about the Top 50 Amazing Tech Tastemakers campaign a few weeks ago. Since then a number of you took the time to cast your vote on who you think should be a Top 50 Tech Tastemaker and the results and activity have been both interesting and exciting to watch. The voting ended yesterday and we ended up as #25 on the list!

THE POWER OF THANK YOU

by BDPA Detroit TAC

In the spirit of Thanksgiving I'd love to share with you the benefits and power of two simple words. THANK YOU.

They are two words that have the power to transform our health, happiness, athletic performance and success. Research shows that grateful people are happier and more likely to maintain good friendships. A state of gratitude, according to research by the Institute of HeartMath, also improves the heart's rhythmic functioning, which helps us to reduce stress, think more clearly under pressure and heal physically. It's actually physiologically impossible to be stressed and thankful at the same time. When you are grateful you flood your body and brain with emotions and endorphins that uplift and energize you rather than the stress hormones that drain you.
