My Summer With Des
My Summer with Des is a 1998 comedy drama television film, written by Arthur Smith, and directed by Simon Curtis. Broadcast to coincide with the beginning of World Cup 1998, the story is set during the European football championships in 1996, where football fan Martin finds his life is going from bad to worse after losing his job and splitting up with his girlfriend. It starred Neil Morrissey and Des Lynam, with Rachel Weisz playing the role of his love interest who seems to have the ability to travel through time and know the outcome of the tournament's matches before they happen. At one point Neil Morrissey's character asks her to take him straight to the semi-final between England and Germany, which they then arrive at in the next scene.
My Summer with Des
It starts with Neil Morrissey in France, as they prepare for the 1998 World Cup. He sports an ill-advised moustache and goes into a reverie as he remembers, all those years ago, when football came home. Well, two years ago.

Currently, the State's plan for SNAP-enrolled children in child care only will provide P-EBT covering the months of August 2022 through May 11, 2023. Children in child care are eligible for benefits if they are enrolled in SNAP and their child care facility is closed or operating with reduced attendance or hours, or if they live in the area of a school that is closed or operating with reduced attendance or hours. Benefits will be issued depending on the number of days that eligible children do not receive meal services through their covered childcare facility. Learn more about P-EBT for Child Care.
With the public health emergency expected to end on May 11, 2023, children in childcare will not be eligible for the 2023 Summer P-EBT benefit. The Arizona State Plan will be for School Children only. School-aged children attending National School Lunch Program (NSLP) schools at the end of the academic School Year 2022-2023 who were determined eligible for free or reduced-price meals, or attending a school on an active Special Provision Option cycle (Community Eligibility Provision, Provision 2 or Provision 3) will receive Summer 2023 P-EBT. Additionally, households with school-aged children are able to apply for Summer 2023 P-EBT at the NSLP site where they are currently enrolled by submitting a NSLP household application by the last day of the academic school year, or June 30, 2023, whichever comes first. Each eligible child will receive a benefit of $120. DES will begin processing the school-aged children for their Summer P-EBT benefits starting late July/early August 2023. Learn more about Summer P-EBT Benefits.
Eligible families with school-aged children will receive a pre-loaded Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card that can be used to purchase groceries. Households with eligible children under age 6 who are currently receiving Nutrition Assistance and/or Cash Assistance benefits will have this additional benefit added to their existing EBT cards.
This summer, Olivia Cantrell and Mallory Nelson joined the Des Moines Symphony team without ever setting foot in the office. Read below to learn what the summer was like for our first-ever remote interns!
Hi! My name is Olivia Cantrell, and I was the Marketing and Development Intern for the Des Moines Symphony this summer. Music has always been an essential part of my life, but performing was not the route I wanted to take. Growing up in a musical family, I experienced both the performance and administration sides of the music industry. After some very long conversations with my parents, I decided performing arts administration was the path I wanted to pursue in college. I currently attend Drake University, where I will be a Junior in September. I am a Marketing Major and have a Minor in Music, which allows me to play French Horn in almost all of the Drake University Bands. I am originally from Massachusetts and Wisconsin, but my family recently moved to Florida, so I call many places home, including Des Moines. Des Moines is such a fantastic city, and I was excited to see the Des Moines Symphony Orchestra had two intern positions for the summer. Over the past two years, I have attended numerous DMSO concerts and knew that this would be a great place to start my career in performing arts administration.
Hi Des Moines Symphony goers! My name is Mallory Nelson, and I was the marketing intern for the Des Moines Symphony this summer. I am a native Iowan who grew up in the Des Moines area. However, I do attend school out of state at Arizona State University. I will be a Senior this fall, finishing my degree in marketing and my minor in dance. A huge passion of mine is the performing arts, specifically dance. I grew up competing and being on stage, where I started dancing at the age of three. I guess you could say that performing arts will always be a part of me, and I have always wanted to find a way to combine my major with my minor. When I saw the intern position at the Des Moines Symphony, I knew that I had to apply. No matter how far I went away for college, Iowa - more specifically - Des Moines will always be my home. I am so excited that I had the opportunity to intern for the symphony this summer!
Olivia: When I accepted the position as Marketing and Development Intern, Drake had already sent its students home for the rest of the semester. Still, I was not anticipating working from home all summer as well. After finishing the semester online, I had already developed good work habits that were a big help in staying focused when the internship started. We had a set period from which to work on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, but my schedule varied from day to day. I found creating an itemized schedule helped me stay focused and complete the tasks I needed to get done. Another plus to working from home was working in comfortable clothes. I started the summer wearing business casual on workdays, but as the summer progressed, however, the business casual migrated to more and more relaxed. However, with a routine already down, this did not seem to affect my productivity.
Mallory: I definitely missed not being able to build personal connections with those on staff and my fellow intern Olivia. It was hard to log on to work every day and have little to no human interaction, besides talking to people through zoom and messaging. However, like Olivia previously mentioned, we did get the opportunity to have one on one discussions with each staff member. This allowed for more insight into how the Symphony operates and was an excellent opportunity to get to know the staff members better. Another challenge of working from home was all the possible distractions that could come up. These distractions varied every day from my family of five, also being home this summer to my dog scratching on my door, my phone going off with notifications, and having a construction crew working on my street. To help combat this, I would change up my workspace around the house and put on headphones to block out the many noises.
Mallory: I have learned so many things throughout this strange summer. For me looking into the future once I graduate, I am still unsure of what path is for me. There are many things that one can do with a marketing degree that makes it hard to narrow down what I want to pursue. I enjoy the performing arts, and I also enjoy advertising. This next year I will be exploring both options of whether an ad agency is for me or arts admin. The biggest takeaway for me would be that wherever I work or end up, I need to be able to adapt. Working during this pandemic has shown me that nothing is set in stone and that the industry is constantly changing. Whatever career I end up in, I am now prepared to be flexible. I am grateful for this internship, as many other organizations canceled. I would just like to thank the Symphony and staff for the opportunity to learn, grow, and better myself.

Each summer RDG Planning & Design welcomes a group of summer interns to the firm, offering students a real-life lens into the world of design and planning. During this time, RDG interns work alongside professionals in various disciplines and across multiple markets, learning directly from seasoned practitioners and getting hands-on project experience
One goal that I had on this internship was to learn new tips and tricks to work more efficiently with computer programs. Because of my internship, I was able to learn more about Adobe Illustrator through work creating various graphics for the projects I was working on.
The most exciting thing for me about this summer internship was the opportunity to be in the office full-time. The in-person experience meant I was truly able to venture into the office and company culture while meeting tons of people along the way. 041b061a72
