Who says only modern day presidents used the press to their advantage? From his earliest days, Abraham Lincoln devoured newspapers. As he started out in politics he wrote editorials and letters to argue his case. He spoke to the public directly through the press. He even bought a German-language newspaper to appeal to that growing electorate in his state. Lincoln alternately pampered, battled, and manipulated the three most powerful publishers of the day: Horace Greeley of the New York Tribune, James Gordon Bennett of the New York Herald, and Henry Raymond of the New York Times. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30 when Al speaks with noted Lincoln scholar and best selling author, Harold Holzer about his new book: Lincoln and the Power of the Press.

In an all-new episode of The Business Beat, Steve Jones-D’Agostino, strategic partner of Susan Wagner PR + Best Rate Of Club, interviews Rose Pavlov, president and CEO of Ivy Child International. They talk about the business of teaching children mindfulness, self-regulation and leadership.

Ivy Child is a charitable non-profit organization based in Worcester that provides cross-cultural positive psychological services for children, families and communities worldwide. Ivy Child does this by “teaching children mindfulness, self-regulation and leadership to build resilience, emotional intelligence and healthy habits for life.”

Rose Pavolv’s academic path has taken her to Boston University, University of Oxford, and Harvard University. Her professional and volunteer experiences have led her to a partnership with UNICEF and World Vision.

In 2010, Rose was recognized by Worcester Business Journal as one of the 40 Under Forty emerging leaders in Central Massachusetts. In 2012 in Boston, she addressed the Empower Peace Women 2 Women Global Leadership Conference. That conference provided more than 600 emerging, international, young women leaders (ages 15 to 19) from 41 countries with leadership training and social-entrepreneurship skills, while strengthening their cultural competencies through training, lectures and discussions by experts and women leaders such as Rose.

Rose realized at a very young age that her passion was working with young children. Her commitment to community and international humanitarian service evolved as a teenager, when she worked with Mother Theresa and the Sisters of Charity.

While serving slum dwellers in southern India, Rose taught art and music to children in villages. Over the past two years, she has worked with the victims of the natural disaster in Haiti, provided teacher/school training in the Dominican Republic, and lectured in the United States.

Rose is also a board member of the Center for Women and Enterprise. However, she says, her most cherished role is being the mother of two.

On November 15, at Worcester Technical High School, Ivy Child International hosts A Journey to Kerala, an exclusive culinary benefit featuring a 21-course vegetarian Sadya – or feast -  and traditional entertainment.  All proceeds support mindfulness-based learning programs in the Worcester Public Schools.
