New wave psychological science

How do we change our minds?

Elizabeth Gilley, 2015

What accounts for changes in attitudes and dispositions which guide behavior? Under the perspective framework of  evolving Cognitive Behavioral  Theory,  we understand that both internal and external stimuli effect response patterns. Other psychological perspectives, may consider other  interpersonal variables, such as the body-mind intelligence,  including past experiential training history and conditioning, as well as  Humanistic,  Transpersonal and Integral psychological self-perceptual concepts, which can encompass an  enlargement (rather than a diminishing ) of perspective, reevaluation of changing need, circumstance,  and more positive  self-efficacious  motivational factors.  In the evolving study of social psychology, both internal and external, intrapersonal and interpersonal variables,  are considered.

Social psychologists have always been interested in determining what accounts for an individual’s cognitions, attitude and emotions, reasoning, judgements, and behaviors,  including the situational, as well as the collective influence of culture and society upon the individual. For if we can understand these, then perhaps, in turn, we can induce change, for a variety of purposes ranging from control of the masses, in relation to limited resources, commercial marketing and economic advancement and hopefully, perhaps, also, the altruistic, advancement of the human race.  Certainly,  there are  occasions that merit our effort  to predict behavior in regards to survival and self-defense.

A good predictor of behavior, is past behavior. However, there are many determinants of behavior, each powerful in Continue reading

MIAPBC Members: We need your help!
We are looking for member testimonials to be featured on our website and other member recruitment materials. In 2-3 sentences, sum up why you decided to join the MIAPBC and how it has been beneficial for you. Please email these toalyssa@marinepbc.org by January 31.
Something new we would like to incorporate for 2016 is the MIAPBC Ambassador Program. Veteran members (5+ years) would make themselves available to talk to new members in a mentor-like role. Sometimes it is better for new members to talk to other members who have been in their shoes rather than association staff. Ambassador’s would also make new members feel welcome at MIAPBC events. If you are interested, contact Alyssa Freeman.

West Palm Beach – The West Palm Beach Fishing Club’s (WPBFC) 79th annual Silver Sailfish Derby, headquartered out of the Sailfish Marina on Singer Island, is set for January 6th through 9th, 2016.  Established in 1935, the event is recognized as ‘The World’s Oldest Sailfish Tournament’ and continues to attract some of the best sailfish anglers, captains and crews in the sport.
The tournament is expected to draw approximately 40 boats and 200 anglers who will be vying for some of sailfishing’s most prestigious awards.  Part of what makes the Derby so special are the traditions and the people behind them.  Many Derby awards are sponsored by families who have

been associated with the event for decades.  The Derby’s top angler a
ward is the Mrs. Henry R. Rea trophy, a magnificent silver sailfish sculpture that dates back to the event’s origin.  Henry Rea was a WPBFC supporter and seasonal resident of Palm Beach who underwrote the spectacular trophy to honor his wife.  The Rea Trophy remains one of the most coveted trophies in all of angling.  The Top Lady Angler trophy is sponsored by the Hampp Family in memory of Rose Hampp, who won the honor in the 1957 Derby along with many other awards throughout her accomplished angling career.  The Louis S. Boski award for Outstanding Angling Achievement honors the late Lou Boski, an active WPBFC member who set the Atlantic sailfish single day catch record of 83 releases in 1980.  Other prizes include the Top Small Boat trophy, Top Tag Team, daily angler and boat awards, and overall boat and angler awards.
Those who are not fishing the event can follow tournament boat standings on the Derby’s mobile friendly virtual scoreboard.  The Derby scoreboard will go live just prior to the event and can be found on the WPBFC official website.
Photo’s from the tournament are routinely posted on Instagram at #SilverSailfishDerby.  Proceeds from the event benefit the WPBFC’s many conservation and education initiatives.  For registration and additional details on the Silver Sailfish Derby contact the WPBFC at (561) 832-6780 or visit:  www.westpalmbeachfishingclub.org
More Derby History….
The Silver Sailfish Derby was established by the WPBFC during the Great Depression as a way to stimulate tourism and business in the Palm Beaches.  In the late 1950’s famous American author and avid big game angler Ernest Hemingway was a Derby trophy sponsor.  While plenty of celebrities have participated in the event through the years, it is the Derby’s longstanding support of billfish conservation that has been its hallmark.  In the late 1930’s Derby organizers began promoting catch and release fishing for sailfish, a very new and radical concept for the day.  This forward-thinking approach to offshore saltwater fishing set the stage for the catch and release ethic that is widely practiced by anglers today. Perhaps the most notable conservation contribution attributable to the Derby is the development of the red release pennant.  The WPBFC began flying the pennants in 1938. Today, the little red pennant is recognized around the world as a way to signify a sailfish release. The Derby was also among the first tournaments to incorporate game fish tagging for scientific purposes into a competitive format.  The WPBFC became an early advocate for the use of non-offset circle hooks when fishing for sailfish and required their use in the tournament prior to the National Marine Fisheries Service mandate.  Eagle Claw L2004EL zero degree offset circle hooks and the Eagle Claw TroKar non-offset circle hook are the ‘Official Circle Hooks’ of the Silver Sailfish Derby.  Author Mike Rivkin chronicled the Silver Sailfish Derby’s storied history in his book, The West Palm Beach Fishing Club: A 75-year History.

Celebrating 30 Years! 

Youth Sailing Foundation of the Palm Beaches – 
Spring Sail Team Sponsorship Available
Marine Industries Association Members,
The Youth Sailing Foundation of the Palm Beaches was formed in 2015 to support youth sailing in Palm Beach County by working with established organizations in the community.  One of our goals is to support young sailors who are interested in developing their sailing skills but may not have the financial means to do so.
The Palm Beach Sailing Club is currently registering sailors for the Spring Sailing Team that starts Saturday January 16th.  Participants range in age from 8-16, with younger sailors in the small Optimist dinghy, and the high school sailors in the olympic class Laser dinghy.  Season runs from Jan 16 to May 26.  There is one after-school practice during the week, and a Saturday practice.  Competitive sailors travel to regattas around South Florida.  Many of the older Sail Team sailors return to work as summer camp counselors or volunteers.  The Coaching fee for the Spring Season is $450 and there is a $150 boat rental fee.
Our Foundation would like to sponsor a young sailor with a genuine interest in developing their sailing skills, who is in good academic standing and may require financial assistance.    Sponsorship may be partial or full depending on assessed need.
Please provide the following information for sponsorship consideration totom@ysfpb.org by January 24th.

Header - Opinion
From Sally: I’m emailing you in response to the suggestion that we contact our representatives regarding our island. If we do not have the ability to vote since some of us are not residents of Florida but pay property taxes, we should be able to vote in all local elections. Many of our island part-time residence pay huge tax bills each year with no representation whatsoever. I would like to initiate a bill through our state representatives to allow property owners the ability to vote in local and state elections in states in which they own their property and pay taxes. This is taxation with no representation.
From the office of Rep. Bill Hager …

A US Citizen can only be registered to vote in one state, and can only be a legal resident of one state. In fact, there have been people prosecuted for voting in 2 different states for the same election. I would suggest that our part time residents know they can still voice their concerns, come to town hall meetings, email and call their elected officials. We don’t look up whether or not a person is registered to vote when they call us, we just ask their address to know that we represent them.
Update: If you haven’t done so, please update your voter registration or register to vote in the upcoming March 15, 2016 Municipal Elections. Learn more …
