Director of Robin Hood Camp Rick Littlefield Is Just 7 Years From a Major Ownership Achievement

Rick Littlefield, the Director of Robin Hood Camp, is only seven years away from a major ownership milestone.

CARMEL, CA, USA, June 5, 2020 / — The ownership of a family business is something that can be passed down from generation to generation. With this passing down, comes family traditions of ownership and leadership that simply can't be maintained when a business falls out of a family. For Robin Hood Camp Director Rick Littlefield, a major ownership milestone is just several short years away.

The Robin Hood Camp is on a quest for 100 years of ownership by only two generations of a family. The milestone is so impressive, because years of research has yet to uncover any other business or organization that was successfully operated for 100 consecutive years with just two generations of family leadership. Rick Littlefield explains this accomplishment is one that has never been seen before, and that's much of why he's so eager to reach this seven-year gold.

Rick Littlefield has successful run the Robin Hood Camp, following his father, for decades. He has maintained many leadership and ownership policies passed down from his father, the founder. Rick Littlefield sates that it would be an honor for the entire Littlefield family to reach this milestone.

The Robin Hood Camp Maine currently has 93 years of family tradition under its belt. The camp, currently directed by Rick Littlefield and passed to him by his father, offers one of the most dynamic programs in summer camping for kids. Kids are selected from around the world to take part in the camp and practice more than 35 activities and sports. Rick Littlefield explained that each child is carefully interviewed before admission to ensure an exceptionally friendly camp experience. 

Some of the traditions carried down in the camp's nearly 100 years of existence are a remarkable sense of community, camper diversity, and camper freedom to choose their own activities. Rick Littlefield explained that world-renowned counselors, who provide positive experiences for campers year after year, are another time-honored tradition. 

"The Robin Hood Camp has been one of the top camps in the country since 1928," Rick Littlefield said. "With all of these years comes experience and tradition that can't be rivaled by other camps."

Rick Littlefield described that he looks forward to completing the quest of reaching 100 years of ownership between his father and himself. He explained that this unprecedented achievement is one that will be celebrated among his family and at the camp. 

"We know these next seven seasons of camping are going to fly by," Rick Littlefield concluded. "They always do with all of the adventure and excitement that takes place here at Robin Hood Camp. We look forward to keeping this camp in the family for another 100 years too."

Camp-Owner Rick Littlefield Shares Three Valuable Skills Kids Develop at Summer Camp

CARMEL, CALIFORNIA, USA, June 5, 2020 / — Serving as camp owner and operator for decades, Rick Littlefield of Robin Hood Camp has witnessed the valuable skills kids develop during camp and shares them with readers below. 

Robin Hood Camp has served as one of the world’s premier summer camp programs since Rick Littlefield’s father first opened its doors to the public almost a hundred years ago. Today, the summer camp program offers world-class activities led by professionals in their field who instill lasting skills and traits.

Camp-owner Rick Littlefield believes campers attending his Maine program learn critical skills and develop life-long habits through positive reinforcement and guidance from experienced leaders. 

“Robin Hood Camp gives campers a unique opportunity to grow and develop by picking out their own activities throughout the summer and the level of difficulty they’ll participate in,” says Rick Littlefield. “Among other beneficial traits, this leads campers to learn important decision making skills they might not otherwise receive until later in life.”

1. Decision-Making 

At summer camp programs like the one Rick Littlefield offers in Maine, campers learn to be more independent of their parents and make informed decisions that directly affect their lives. At Robin Hood Camp, campers experience a structured program with plenty of options to choose from, giving them the ability to learn decision making skills in a comfortable environment with the guidance of professionals on-hand. This allows all campers to experience personal growth and gives them the chance to come out of their shells. 

2. Teamwork

“The activities at Robin Hood Camp encourage teamwork in a range of ways, whether it’s in competitive sports, in excursions and activities requiring collaboration, or other partnerships,” says Rick Littlefield. 

While schools teach teamwork between students at a certain level, summer camp programs offer a more hands-on approach. At summer camps, campers rely on support from one another and learn to have more success and fun when working with others. This learned teamwork will benefit campers throughout their lives, from education and familial relationships to personal and professional ventures later in life. 

3. Resilience

At summer camp, kids are often away from their parents for the first time or else are away from them for uncharacteristically long amounts of time. This gives them the opportunity to prove resilience to themselves by overcoming hurdles, undergoing challenges, and making informed decisions on their own. If needed, counselors are there to care for campers, but this freedom to stand on their own encourages campers to be stronger and more confident in their day-to-day. This resilience will carry over into nearly every aspect of their adult lives. 

“Kids come back from summer camp more confident and stronger than before, and are capable of overcoming greater obstacles with the valuable skills they’ve learned,” says Rick Littlefield.

An Open Letter from Krishnan Suthanthiran to the American People to Unite Together Under God and the American Flag As One Nation and One People

Let us follow in the footsteps of our forefathers in making progress for racial justice and promoting peaceful non-violent protests to express our views and desires.”

— Krishnan Suthanthiran, TeamBest Companies & Best Cure Foundation

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, June 5, 2020 / — The first time I heard about America was during President John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural speech in 1961, and I was fascinated and inspired by his message. During that time, I was an Indian Citizen pursuing my studies in High School in India.

Subsequently, President JFK challenged America to land a Man on the Moon in the 1960s. Although his life was cut short by the bullets of hatred in November 1963, Americans fulfilled his dream of landing a man on the moon in 1969. When I heard the news about JFK’s death, I was in my first year of college and wept after hearing the tragic news. However, after we landed a man on the moon in July 1969, I traveled to Canada to pursue my Master’s Degree at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I was elated to watch the TV news programs of the American astronauts landing on the moon.

After graduating from Carleton University with a Masters Degree in Engineering, I traveled to the USA and arrived in Washington, DC in late June of 1972 as a permanent resident — soon after the Democratic National Committee office break-in at the Watergate Office Building. I liked the beauty of Washington, DC and looked for employment with hopes of remaining there. I was fortunate to be recruited by an Oncologist at Howard University Hospital (formerly known as Freedmen’s) in mid-July 1972. A career in cancer treatment and research has been a lifelong goal of mine, ever since my father’s passing in 1968 due to cancer. Shortly after that, I became involved in part-time business in medical supplies to hospitals. I worked as an Engineer Physicist at Howard University Hospital in Washington, DC, USA until 1978. After residing in the USA for 17 years as a permanent resident from 1972–1989, I chose to become an American Citizen in 1989, as I am proud to be an American.

Rev. Martin Luther King spoke about his dream of having everyone judged by their character, not by the color of their skin, hoping all could work and live together in peace. While we have made substantial progress as we have become a Global “melting pot” of various ethnicities, nationalities and individuals of all backgrounds studying, working together, and living in peace globally for the most part. However, discrimination based on race, gender, nationality, skin color and ethnicity continues to challenge our society’s ability to live in peace and prosperity for all.

This past week, we have witnessed the entire world speaking out in dismay and displeasure at the recent death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. In addition, we have seen many such injustices unfortunately too often and too tragically. Leaders, CEOs of major corporations, and citizens of many countries have also spoken and protested such excessive lawlessness by those who have taken an oath of office to preserve and protect citizens.

Mahatma Gandhi dreamt of a free India, and today, India is the largest democracy in the world since receiving Independence from Great Britain more than 72 years ago, on August 15, 1947. The likes of JFK, Mahatma Gandhi, Rev. Martin Luther King, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk and others, all promoted peaceful, non-violent protests and channeled their hope, desires and dreams into accomplishments that benefit all humankind.

This past weekend we witnessed the incredible success of USA/NASA, SpaceX, Elon Musk and Veteran Astronauts, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley accomplish their team’s launch to the International Space Station. This was accomplished, for the first time in almost a decade, from U.S. Soil, and at a fraction of the cost to American Tax Payers — due to the smart Public/Private Partnership between NASA and SpaceX, founded by Elon Musk, one of America’s genius innovators.

So, my fellow Americans, let us take a lot of pride in this monumental accomplishment of this latest journey to Space. While the entire world has spoken about the unjust death of George Floyd, let us express our courage, determination to fight injustice through lawful, non-violent protests, as we are guided by martyrs like George Floyd, Rev. Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy and others, who have sacrificed their lives in fighting for the good of human beings all over the world.

I, too, have suffered prejudice of various kinds during my life. In order to help the people see through these flaws of our system, I plan to make a series of docudramas about prejudices and discrimination I experienced all over the world — to let the world look in the mirror to see, learn and correct itself over time.

There are good and bad elements in every profession. Many play a challenging role in maintaining peace, law and order and some have sacrificed their lives in line of duty in order to accomplish this. However racial, ethnic, gender, age, religious or nationality discrimination exist all over the world still today. There are some who take the law into their own hands and start summary execution of fellow Citizens of this world. Again and again, we have witnessed this abuse of power in several such incidents, as well as this past week, in the senseless and brutal murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

For centuries, major political parties in America have governed by dividing Americans. As a proud American, I would like to unite all Americans, as we all have the same common goals and aspirations. To accomplish this I established a new independent political party named ‘Proud American Party’ to present unique solutions to all the challenges we face today.

Education is the most effective way to eliminate poverty, improve global health and promote peace. A college education should not be a debt sentence-for-life for our young adults. Everyone deserves the best healthcare — after all health is wealth. To accomplish these goals, I established Best Cure Global Foundation in 2007 to make quality education and healthcare affordable and accessible to everyone. In addition, I formed a division under BCF called ‘3E — Education, Empowerment & Equality’ in memory of my mother to promote the development and advancement of women and the underprivileged. Having lost my father to cancer, I launched a ‘Global War on Cancer’ on April 29, 2015 in memory of my father. My companies' (TeamBest) products and technologies continue to save millions of lives annually for more than 6 decades.

Let us pray together, channel our energy and positive spirits of our souls to solve the numerous challenges of our society, including COVID-19, high cost of healthcare and education. My fellow Americans, please join me in uniting all Americans under God and the American flag. Let us follow in the footsteps of our forefathers in making progress for racial justice and promoting peaceful non-violent protests to express our views and desires.

Have a great day — be safe and healthy. Let us care for each other. Best wishes.

Dr. David Samadi: Four essential cancer screenings men need

prostate cancer

colon cancer

Prostate cancer, Colon Cancer and Testicular cancer are some of the few cancers that screening plays a vital role in detection, cure when it is diagnosed early.

Prostate Cancer is a silent killer and no symptoms. Screening with PSA and rectal Exam can save your life.Using MRI technology cancer can be detected and chance of cure is much higher in early stages.”

— Dr. David Samadi

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 4, 2020 / — The men in our lives – grandfathers, fathers, husbands, brothers, sons, uncles – may not be getting the regular cancer screenings they need. Skipping lifesaving routine screenings help find signs of a serious problem before it’s too late to treat.

“Getting routine health screenings may be the last thing on most men’s minds yet they really should be one of the first,” explained Dr. David Samadi, Director of Men’s Health and Urologic Oncology at St. Francis Hospital on Long Island. “Men are 24 percent less likely to visit their doctors in any given year than women and 22 percent less likely to get their cholesterol checked. This also includes their hesitation on getting screened for cancer, despite the fact their cancer mortality rates are higher.”

“In my field as a urologist, prostate cancer is the leading cancer diagnosis among men and the third most common diagnosis overall with 191,930 expected cases in 2020,” said Dr. David Samadi. “Prostate cancer in the early stages usually has no symptoms. Annual screenings for this cancer should begin at age 40 to establish a baseline and then the frequency thereafter depends on family history of this cancer and ethnicity.”

Dr. Samadi’s top four cancer screening tests all men need include checks for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, colorectal cancer and skin cancer.

Prostate cancer screening
The most common cancer in men is prostate cancer other than skin cancer. The majority of prostate cancers are slow-growing but some can be aggressive and fast-growing types as well.

“Men who schedule regular prostate cancer screenings beginning at age 40, will have an excellent change of recovery if any disease is found,” said Dr. Samadi.

Screening tests for men for prostate cancer include a simple blood test called a prostate specific antigen (PSA) and a digital rectal exam.

Testicular cancer
Even though testicular cancer is not very common, the incidence rate of it has been increasing in the United States and many other countries for several decades.

Men, who are at the greatest risk of developing testicular cancer, are between the ages of 20-34, with 33 being the average age at the time of diagnosis. Only nine percent of men with testicular cancer are older than 50.
“It’s necessary for men, especially within these age ranges, to do a monthly self-examination of the testes,” advised Dr. Samadi. “If any lumps, bumps or other changes are noticed, they need to see their doctor as soon as possible as testicular cancer has a very high cure rate.”

Colorectal cancer
Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men. This cancer begins in the colon or rectum starting out as a growth called a polyp on the inner lining of the colon or rectum. Some types of polyps can change into cancer but not all polyps are cancerous. The most effective way to prevent colorectal cancer is to find and remove the colon polyps before they turn cancerous. The most common test to detect polyps and colorectal cancer is to have a colonoscopy done beginning at age 50 or younger if colorectal cancer runs in your family.

Skin cancer
The most common cancer found in men is skin cancer with the most dangerous form being malignant melanoma. Men not only have a higher risk of developing this deadly skin cancer than women but also have a higher death rate.
“Men tend to get more ultraviolet exposure because of their jobs and consequently more sunburns,” stated Dr. Samadi. “If men skip using sunscreen regularly, they’re at a greater risk of developing deadly malignant melanoma that’s harder to treat. Seeing a dermatologist yearly for a full body skin check along with performing their own skin self-exams, help find suspicious looking changes in skin.”

Dr. Samadi’s last bit of advice, “Be proactive with your health. Cancer screenings can and do save lives. Take advantage of them to take charge of your health.”

Dr. David Samadi is the Director of Men’s Health and Urologic Oncology at St. Francis Hospital in Long Island. He’s a renowned and highly successful board certified Urologic Oncologist Expert and Robotic Surgeon in New York City, regarded as one of the leading prostate surgeons in the U.S., with a vast expertise in prostate cancer treatment and Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy.

Over a Thousand People join Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices Webinar on Developing Communication in Children through Play

Free Autism Workshop: "Developing Communication in Children Through Play" A presentation by Leah Diamant M.S., CCC-SLP, TSSLD.

Free Autism Workshop: “Developing Communication in Children Through Play” A presentation by Leah Diamant M.S., CCC-SLP, TSSLD.

Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices presented an online workshop webinar free of charge through the generosity of the New York City Council of Autism Initiative.

Play is essential. Kids learn everything through play”

— Leah Diamant, M.S., CCC-SLP, TSSLD

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, June 4, 2020 / — On Wednesday, June 3, Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices (SKHOV) hosted a free webinar workshop, “Developing Communication in Children through Play”. The presentation was led by speech-language pathologist, Leah Diamant, M.S., CCC-SLP, TSSLD, and was attended by over 1,000 participants around the world using the Zoom webinar portal.

In this two-hour workshop, Diamant discussed the benefits of using play to promote better speech and social skills. “Play is essential. Kids learn everything through play," Diamant said. She used many studies and video examples to show how much can be learned about communication and problem solving through using toys and interaction with other children.

There are a variety of methods that parents and teachers can utilize in order for play time to become beneficial for development. Parallel play, for example, is a form of play where children play in close proximity to each other and with share toys, but do not directly interact. By playing alongside another person, children will learn how to effectively speak and work with others in an enjoyable setting. She gave comprehensive examples of how parents can promote this type of environment at home.

With proper guidance during play time, educators and parents are able to develop better communication skills and vocabulary in young children. Diamant also stressed the importance of supporting children at the level they are at rather than pushing them further before they’re ready. This practice is very beneficial for development and allows children to have fun while learning.

The workshop, along with all others by SKHOV, was provided free of charge through the generosity of the New York City Council Autism Initiative.

Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices founded by Dr. Joshua Weinstein, offers a broad spectrum of evidence-based education and therapeutic programs to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and related disabilities in a warm and nurturing environment. As a nonpublic, nonprofit, multi-cultural school, we provide quality treatment, education, professional training and mentoring.

Best of Los Angeles Award Winning Author, Adrienne Rubin, Shares Short Piece On Responsibility & Freedom Amidst COVID-19

Adrienne Rubin

American Workers Survey

"In spite of our need for freedom, most of those who responded are choosing responsible behavior"- Adrienne Rubin

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, June 4, 2020 / — In the midst of the national protests that have taken place throughout the nation, it has become easy to drown out all other news. “If it bleeds, it leads”. Recent winner of the Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best New Memoir – 2020” for her memoir “Diamonds and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business”, Adrienne Rubin takes a closer look into the mindset behind responsibility and freedom in this country in response to COVID-19. Having just received a Members Spotlight in Modern Luxury/Angeleno Magazine for this year’s International Women’s Day on March 8th, 2020, Adrienne has written a short piece entitled "A New Mindset," hoping to raise awareness of a topic that has often been overlooked during these unprecedented times. Read Adrienne’s piece here:

"A woman on the beach on our east coast was proud not to be wearing a mask in public. As an independent thinker, she refused to be told what to do. Her freedom was too important.

The dictionary defines freedom as “the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.” In other words, it is the state of being allowed to do whatever you want to do whenever you want to do it, which would be fine if we each lived alone and apart from the presence of others.

In society, along with freedom, there must come the other side of the coin: Responsibility. How does your freedom affect mine? And today more than ever, how does your not wearing a mask affect me? You ignore science and the fact that your very breath holds a potential invisible weapon. According to what experts are saying, should you come within my air space, you put me in danger. Neither of us can know for certain, but when you confront me without a mask on, my instinct for survival is telling me to flee.

At a news conference in March of this year, Rudy Gobert, the first NBA player found to have Covid-19, elicited careless behavior by touching all the microphones and recording devices at a news conference. Cameras captured him while he blatantly, although unknowingly, infected others. His later apology was widely accepted. But to flaunt independence and personal freedom at the expense of others, now that we know better, threatens us all.

Our new mindset requires a return to ethical behavior. Let’s assume we choose to follow suggested guidelines, putting others as a priority, behaving responsibly by valuing the gift of life, and universal good health above all else. We willingly give up feelings of entitlement, replacing them with a heightened sense of the environment and a social consciousness. Ideally, this leads to empathy and more purposeful existence, and yet, even so, we still anxiously await a return to work and a semblance of life before COVID.

Our new normal lives will be different and slow in coming. Many of us expect to return to work in the coming weeks and months, while far fewer expect to resume social activities in the near future. Many businesses around the world will have vanished, unable to withstand economic pressure. Those with online sales will enjoy double-digit growth, as digital habits become firmly entrenched. Virtual shopping sessions will peak our interest, as we search for items to buy. Even though luxury sales will return faster than expected, since those who can afford it will indulge, prices will be lower, and even this sector will take longer to recover.

As we begin the month of June, fewer than half of us will book medical appointments, even essential ones. The same is predicted for grocery shopping in person, eating in restaurants, going into stores to shop, and any activity that involves close contact with others.
