GLOUCESTER — A group of 120 young women from all over the globe descended on the Maritime Gloucester museum Saturday afternoon to learn all about marine science, the local fishing industry, and what it’s like to be a female sea captain.

The point of the program was to help inspire these young women — ages 15 to 19 — and assure them they can have a place among the next generation of influential chemists, biologists, engineers, mathematicians — even seafarers, if that’s their dream.

Blackburn Challenge Outrigger Canoe Video

Hi Joey,
My lovely wife, Mary Kay, Cindy Perry and Scott Tyrrell paddled a 4-person outrigger canoe in last week’s Blackburn Challenge. We belong to Boston Outrigger Racing Association and our club was well represented in this year’s event. The 4-person outrigger is called “The Duke” and had a couple of GoPro’s running. As you know, the seas were big and there was plenty of adventure! Our “ama” or outrigger filled up with water and we had to drain it on the beach in Gap’s Cove. We had a terrific race and hope Good Morning Gloucester enjoys our video!

Millard Fuller Quote of the Week from Greg Bover

The Quoter is still sailing. Here’s another one of my favorites from the collection for your consideration.

“It is easier to act your way to right thinking than it is to think your way to right action.”

Millard Fuller (1935-2009)

Fuller founded Habitat for Humanity, which has built more than 150,000 homes for those in need in more than 90 countries. Volunteers build houses with the recipients, who then repay the cost of materials at no interest, revolutionizing the way in which philanthropy works. The holder of 50 honorary degrees, Bill Clinton awarded him the Medal of Freedom in 1996.

New Summer Program At O’Maley

Hi, Joey,The first “Summer Science Grad Camp” at O’Maley Innovation Middle School has just wrapped up. An enthusiastic group of “graduates” of Grades 7 and 8 at O’Maley spent two weeks working alongside teachers exploring new ideas and innovative projects that could be incorporated into the science curriculum at each of the grade levels in future years.
Grade 7 students and teachers delved into life science studies for a week in the O’Maley “Slime Lab,” studying single-cell organisms, engaging in dissection studies and examining human anatomy with new model torsos that just arrived at the school. They spent another week exploring engineering ideas, culminating a full building event with concrete in the lab. Grade 7 students also had three field trips to the MIT Museum, the Museum of Science and the Harvard Museum of Natural history, all in Cambridge.
Grade 8 students extended the work they had done with the O’Maley 3D printers during the school, applying their new skills to two exciting projects: designing and creating prosthetic hands, and “printing” 3D chocolates (visiting Gloucester’s own Turtle Alley for inspiration)! They worked with e-Nable, an organization that uses 3D printing to produce prothetics, on the design software, and also explored tessellations–using repetitive geometic shapes to create a design on a flat plane.   
Here is the link to more photos from this two-week program:


TBT Post Carrying New Line Featuring design by a Rockport local graffiti artist Scott Perdomenico

I’m attaching some pictures of it, hope you like it.

Thanks and talk to you later.



East Gloucester Map, 1884 from Pat Dalpiaz

Joey–I am attaching a couple of pictures I thought you might find interesting.  Several years ago, I bought this map at Dogtown Books and had it framed.  My dad grew up on Haskell Street which is why I picked this map out of all he had to offer at the bookstore. 
These pictures are taken through the clear covering the framers used and therefore not as clear as they might be otherwise.  Still, I thought you and others at GMG might like to see a little piece of East Gloucester, 1884!  I think it’s pretty cool.

You can see others here.  This is Plate 5.

I follow GMG and appreciate all your efforts along with your hard working crew of volunteers!   Pat Dalpiaz
