Message to Our Members From television and tablets to video games, laptops and smart phones, today’s children access media on multiple screens. It’s enough to make any parent worry how much is too much? New recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics place greater emphasis on the quality of the media kids interact with, rather than the quantity, and the association points to PBS KIDS as a leading resource for educational programs. The new guidelines also encourage parents to watch TV with their children, and talk about it together – making screen time family time. Here at NET, we know that when media is developed responsibly and thoughtfully, it impacts education, and that when parents are engaged, kids learn even more. A recent study found that Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood helped kids learn social skills like empathy, recognizing emotions and social confidence, with the key to this learning being parental involvement.

and to be underconnected to the internet. We’ve added NET PBS KIDS to the program schedule on pages 4-13 of INSIDE NET.

Mark Leonard

This month, NET News premieres the new 8-week series Speaking of Nebraska. The program will leverage the power of media to encourage discussion about issues that matter in Nebraska. Newsmakers, policy makers and elected officials will join host Mike Tobias each Thursday night beginning April 20. Also from NET News, After Ebola: Nebraska and the Next Pandemic reveals the personal stories of the medical professionals in Omaha who cared for patients infected with one of the world’s deadliest diseases. The new documentary offers the type of high-quality research journalism that you won’t see on other television stations.

NET’s new fourth channel, NET PBS KIDS, offers the perfect opportunity to watch and learn with the children in your life. With 24/7 access, a livestream and video app, PBS KIDS programming is now available in the evenings and other times when families spend time together.

Your support of NET makes it possible for us to sustain our current programs and produce new ones for you to enjoy.

The new channel is especially important for young children living in low-income households, who are more likely to rely on television for educational content,

Mark Leonard NET General Manager, CEO Proud NET Member

NOVA: Holocaust Escape Tunnel

Tuesday, April 4 9 p.m. CT on NET

Wednesday, April 19 8 p.m. CT on NET

Go inside the violent battle between a ranching family in the West and the federal government, examining how a simmering fight over land in Nevada and Oregon became deadly, invigorated a wider right-wing anti-government movement and continues to challenge prosecutors and law enforcement.

16

NOVA follows archaeologists trying to locate the last traces of a vanished people in the Lithuanian city of Vilnius. Once one of the most important Jewish centers in the world, it was destroyed by the Nazis. As they work to unearth a lost temple, recover its treasures and locate hidden graves, the team makes an extraordinary find—a hidden escape tunnel dug by Jewish prisoners.


Wednesday, April 19 9 p.m. CT on NET Plague. Avian flu. Cholera. The most contagious and deadly diseases in the world could be on our doorstep overnight. Would we recognize the symptoms? Could we treat the disease or keep it from spreading? An elite, specially trained group at the University of Nebraska Medical Center mobilized to face this reality late in the summer of 2014, when three patients infected with the Ebola virus were transferred to the hospital for treatment. The unit spent 10 years preparing for patients with dangerous, highly contagious diseases, but this was no dress rehearsal. It was a worst-case scenario – with possible deadly consequences.

The NET News production After Ebola: Nebraska and the Next Pandemic examines preparedness and planning for a potential pandemic requiring quarantine and containment. It combines the personal stories of those in Omaha who dealt firsthand with one of the world’s deadliest diseases, with reporting about plausible scenarios that detail how a highly infectious disease could emerge from the Great Plains. The documentary also explores how lessons learned at the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit upgraded infectious disease response for health care providers around the world, and forced both small clinics and regional hospitals in Nebraska to reassess their preparedness for a killer pandemic.

“When the Ebola patients were brought to Nebraska there was international media coverage. We wanted to tell the story of what happened behind-thescenes and what lessons were learned from the experience,” said NET News senior producer Bill Kelly.

“Nature is experimenting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.” Dr. Tom Safranek, State Epidemiologist

“A disease anywhere, could be a disease everywhere.” Dr. Ali Khan, Dean of the College of Public Health, University of Nebraska Medical Center

Crete Member Appreciates NET’s “Moral Compass”

Greg and Dineen Vlasnik

You could say that Dineen Vlasnik of Crete and her husband, Greg, are all-around NET fans, keeping up with television, radio and special events. “If I could pick only one channel, it would be PBS,” Dineen said. “It has a moral compass and educational focus I want.” Right now she is binge-watching Call The Midwife – her favorite show – and rarely misses Rick Steves’ travel shows Saturdays on both NET Television and NET Radio. “We love to travel and plan a lot of our trips around Rick Steves’ recommendations,” she added, including trips to Italy and Ireland. Dineen also values the real news she gets from watching PBS NewsHour and listening to All Things Considered as she drives

home from her work as an occupational therapist at Madonna in Lincoln. “I like to learn new things – about our area and from around the country,” she explained. And, she never misses an episode of Nebraska Stories – now in its eighth season on NET Television. Taking in member events is also a highlight. The couple joined a dinner event when The Recipe Box was produced, attended a Joshua Bell concert and just went on their third excursion to view the Sandhill cranes at Rowe Sanctuary with other NET members. “We are so lucky to have what we have in Nebraska as we enjoy all of NET’s programs. I’m proud to be a member,” Dineen added.

NET is planning a spring road trip to South Central Nebraska – visiting Hastings, Holdrege, Minden and McCook – and you’re invited to be part of the fun!

With a Will, There’s a Way A milestone birthday, the arrival of a grandchild or retirement are times to reflect on where your family has been and what the future might hold. It’s also a chance to think about the values you hope to pass along to future generations. One way you can ensure that your values endure is to draft a will – a document that describes how your assets will be distributed to your family after your lifetime. If NET has been important in your life, you may choose to include a gift to support our future. Always be sure to discuss your intention to support NET with your loved ones. Your gift could inspire them to make a connection with NET, too. It’s best to review your will every couple of years to make sure it’s kept pace with your busy life and still protects the people you love. NET can guide you in creating a plan.

Community Support Spotlight

ICAN Inspires Leaders and Transforms Organizations It takes bold thinking, strategy, leadership, communication skills, self-awareness and vision to be a good leader. And, sometimes it also takes guidance to help employees realize their potential in these areas, as well as in building careers. Since 1981, ICAN (Institute for Career Advancement Needs) has provided men and women with opportunities in development and leadership, motivating them with programs and on-site training tailored to meet an individual or company’s unique goals. “We are a trusted partner in helping companies develop their employees in a transformational way,” said ICAN President and CEO Susan Henricks, who leads the organization after a long corporate career. “We are passionate about leadership development.” ICAN works in three primary areas – programs, services and events. And, much like NET’s television and radio programming, it’s an array of options that educates, enlightens and inspires success. ICAN-created programs such as “Defining Leadership,”“IMPACT: Leading High Impact Teams” and “EVOLVE: Navigating Change, Values and Worldview,” help future leaders unlock their potential, navigate change and lead with intention. Companies can work directly with ICAN’s certified facilitators to create customized training and coaching services that address issues specific to their business. 22

ICAN also teaches participants how mind and spirit alignment can translate into success. “Our programs are all about the whole person and their whole life. We help them develop selfawareness, ethics, values, emotional intelligence, whole brain thinking and a leadership voice,” said Allison Schorr, ICAN’s senior manager of marketing and communications. The organization’s premiere event is the annual ICAN Women’s Leadership Conference, which takes an authentic look at evolving trends in today’s workplace. Other networking events are growing in popularity. For example, ICAN’s 7x7x7 events feature seven speakers talking for seven minutes about seven unique topics. The ICAN speaker series features local and national experts presenting topics that are relevant to business leaders of any age or generation – whatever their role. ICAN also believes in the power of assessments as tools to balance learning and leader development. Programs are designed so that companies can understand how each individual thinks and behaves, and how the whole team can benefit from individual experiences. “As baby boomers retire and Generation X and millennials become our next business leaders, this continuum of learning becomes very important,” said Henricks.
