梅仲安警官举了一个剑桥华裔居民接到诈骗电话的例子。打电话的人自称是中国政府官员,如果接电话的人不电汇9.5万美元到香港一家银行,将被逮捕。这名居民汇款後觉得可疑,报了警,经由两名警员和香港警方合作,才成功追回汇款。
梅仲安警官也列举了举多诈骗手法,包括提供技术服务,冒名IRS,假借亲人名义,或网上约会等,手法其实很相似,都假装成受骗者可信任的人,再以各种理由索要金钱。他提醒同学们接到不明来路的电话,一定要提高警觉。

(Boston Orange 周菊子倍投方案图片顿报导) 倍投方案图片顿同源会(CACA Boston)923日晚,假帝苑大酒楼举办第三届「乔治霍尔(George F. Hoar)参议员及新英格兰精神奖」,表扬四名政界及社区人士,鼓励华人重视历史,争取权益,积极参政。

乔治霍尔是麻州康可镇人,美国开国英雄之一Roger Sherman的外孙。1902年美国国会讨论排华法案时,他是77人中唯一投反对票的参议员。倍投方案图片顿同源会因而以他的名义设立奖项。
今年的获奖人士分别为康州参议员黄涛(Tony Hwang),曾任美国驻梵蒂冈大使的前倍投方案图片顿市长雷夫连(Ray Flynn),前牛顿市议员马惠美、甫退休的塔芙茨大学政府及社区关系部主任卢贝(Barbara Rubel )

应邀顶替联邦众议员刘云平,担任当晚主讲人的是已退休美国首名华裔二星将官陈绍章(William S. Chen)。他藉询问在场众人有谁的祖辈当过铁路工人,参加过二次世界大战等问题指出,华人对美国的今日成就曾有许多贡献,却从未受到肯定。
201612月,曾参加二次世界大战的菲律宾退伍军人获得了国会金章奖(Congressional Gold Medal),但推动颁发这国会金章奖给二次世界大战华裔退伍军人的法案,却还在努力中。美国联邦参议院经亚裔参议员Tammy Duckworth努力,甫於2018912日通过,但在联邦众议院部分还差103名议员联署。
父亲在二次世界大战中是飞虎队成员之一的陈绍章指出,如果华人们都努力催促各自选区议员支持,在年底前通过此案,今年十二月的纪念排华法案废除75周年,就更有意义了。
倍投方案图片顿同源会强调教育,文化的重要,邀相关人上上台。(周菊子摄)
??????????? 在台湾高雄出生,九岁移民来美的黄涛,当晚从罗德岛州首名华裔市长,现在竞选州长的冯伟杰手中接过奖座。他以乔治霍尔为引,强调美国是移民国家,各人的语言、文化背景不论差异多大,来到美国,就一样都是美国人。他称许雷夫连为民服务,不分党派,堪为楷模,希望座中学子效法。
??????????? 倍投方案图片顿同源会会长谭飒雯特地在会中指出,该会刻正针对青少筹办项目,培训他们的领导力,以及对中华传统文化的认识与理解。
同源会全国论文比赛的倍投方案图片顿优胜者,刻在倍投方案图片顿大学就读的黄晓琳,北牛顿高中的袁嘉熙,也在当晚领奖,依序各得奖金1000元,700元。

2019 Boston Marathon? Qualifier Acceptances

2019 Boston Marathon??Qualifier?Acceptances
Adjustments to Future Boston Marathon Qualifying Standards Also Announced

BOSTON -?The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) today continued its notification to applicants of their acceptance into the 2019 Boston Marathon?. In preparation for the 2019 Boston Marathon, the B.A.A. implemented the same registration process for qualified runners as it used in the 2012 through 2018 Boston Marathons, allowing the fastest qualifiers to register first. The 123rd?Boston Marathon will be held on Monday, April 15, 2019 and will mark the 34th?consecutive year that the event will have John Hancock as its principal sponsor.

Qualifiers who were four minutes,?52 seconds?(4:52) or faster than the qualifying time for their age group and gender have been accepted into the 2019 Boston Marathon. A total of 23,074 qualified applicants have been accepted to date or are in the process of being accepted, pending verification of their qualifying performance.

A total of 30,458 applications were received during the registration time period for qualifiers, a significant increase from recent years. With the increase in applications received, 7,384 qualifiers were unable to be accepted due to field size limitations. In cooperation with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the eight cities and towns along the Boston Marathon route, the B.A.A. has set the field size for the 2019 Boston Marathon at 30,000 official entrants.

More than 80% of the 2019 Boston Marathon field will be comprised of athletes who have met the qualifying standards. The balance will consist of invitational entrants, including runners participating as part of the Boston Marathon’s Official Charity Program and John Hancock’s Non-Profit Program, as well as invited elite athletes. Participants who ran on behalf of more than 260 non-profit organizations raised $36.6 million for charity at the 2018 Boston Marathon.

After thoroughly reviewing this year’s applications, and comparing this year’s submission data to trends seen in the past five years, the B.A.A. also today announced adjusted qualifying standards for all age groups looking ahead to the 2020 Boston Marathon. This data-informed assessment and decision factors in the increase of faster times run by Boston Marathon qualifiers; the number of applicants within each age division and gender; and the annual number of applications received since 2014. Qualifying standards will be five minutes faster for all age groups, starting with the 2020 Boston Marathon.

“For countless runners, participating in and completing the Boston Marathon is a life-long athletic goal. We look forward to welcoming 30,000 participants from across the globe to the 123rd running of the Boston Marathon next April,” said Tom Grilk, B.A.A. Chief Executive Officer. “The B.A.A. has worked hard to ensure an equitable and fair process for gaining entry into the Boston Marathon. Due to the unprecedented support and interest in being part of next year’s race, the B.A.A. unfortunately is unable to accept all deserving participants who achieved hard-earned qualifying times. We thank them for their running efforts and desire to run with us.”

Grilk continued: “We have adjusted the qualifying standards for the 2020 Boston Marathon, as the number of marathoners who have submitted applications to run the Boston Marathon has increased significantly during the most recent two registration years. We forecast the interest in running Boston as continuing. We know that the running community pays close attention to our qualifying times for their age group because they are important factors in their training, racing and race selection. As such, for the 2020 Boston Marathon, adjustments to all age group qualifying standards will be five minutes (5:00) faster than previous standards.”

Since 1970, the Boston Marathon has featured qualifying standards as a means of entry. The last time the B.A.A. updated qualifying standards was for the 2013 race, when all qualifying times regardless of age and gender were lowered by five minutes. A breakdown of adjusted Boston Marathon qualifying standards can be found below.

Registration for runners who met the B.A.A.’s Qualifying Standards for the 2019 Boston Marathon began on Monday, September 10 using a “rolling admission” schedule and continued through Saturday, September 15. Registration re-opened on Monday, September 17 and application submissions were received through Wednesday, September 19. Registration for the Boston Marathon is not first-come, first-served, but rather allows for a more systematic and orderly application procedure with the fastest qualifiers of those who submitted entries accepted.

  • 30,458 applications were received during the registration period for qualifiers.
  • 23,074?qualified applicants have been accepted to date or are in the process of being accepted, pending verification of their qualifying performance.
  • 7,384 applicants were unable to be accepted due to the large number of eligible qualifiers who submitted an application for entry combined with field size limitations.
  • This year’s ‘Cut-Off’ time needed to gain entry into the Boston Marathon was 4 minutes, 52 seconds or faster than the qualifying time for each respective age group and gender.

During the registration period, the breakdown of accepted Qualifiers was as follows:

  • 5,256 Qualifiers met their qualifying time by 20 minutes, 00 seconds or faster.
  • 8,620 Qualifiers met their qualifying time by 10 minutes, 00 seconds or faster.
  • 8,545 Qualifiers met their qualifying time by 05 minutes, 00 seconds or faster.
  • 220 Qualifiers met their qualifying time by 4 minutes, 52 seconds or faster.
  • 433 Qualifiers were accepted based on finishing 10 or more consecutive Boston Marathons.
  • 270 Qualified Athletes with Disabilities have been accepted, or are expected to be accepted, through the conclusion of the Athletes with Disabilities registration period.

Qualifying performances for the 2019 Boston Marathon must have been run between September 16, 2017 and September 19, 2018. Notices to those accepted will be issued by the B.A.A via e-mail.

For reference, qualifiers needed to be three minutes, 23 seconds or faster than their age group and gender for the 2018 Boston Marathon; two minutes, nine seconds or faster for the 2017 Boston Marathon; two minutes, 28 seconds or faster for the 2016 Boston Marathon; one minute, two seconds or faster for the 2015 Boston Marathon; and one minute, 38 seconds or faster for the 2014 Boston Marathon. A history of Boston Marathon qualifying standards and cut-off times?can be found here. Notices to those who submitted an application for entry but who were not accepted were also issued today.
