A letter to the Class of 2020

first_imgHarvard belongs to all of us and we belong to Harvard and to each other. This manifests itself most clearly, when — as alumni — we elect the Overseers of the University and Elected Directors of the Harvard Alumni Association. This is an enormous responsibility, which we hold together. Harvard alumni have created this community for you and now you can join us in paying it forward.Wherever, however, and whenever, there are so many ways for you to maintain and build your own Harvard community.It could be by continuing to hang out with your classmates, physically or virtually; or via your School reunions; or through your local club; or through one of the 57 HAA Shared Interest Groups like Harvard Alumni Entrepreneurs, Harvard Alumni for Education,  Harvard-Radcliffe Science Fiction Alumni, or Harvard Alumni for Oceania. Look for us on your School or Harvard Alumni Association website, on our club and shared-interest-group websites; our Facebook pages; on our Instagram and Twitter feeds; and even in the depths of subreddits.Wherever you go, this community will be there for you. We are waiting to meet you and we already have your back. Come and find us!So, I know now where I will be on May 28. I won’t be in Tercentenary Theatre; I will be here in Melbourne, Australia, in the middle of the night in my pajamas, watching the livestream from Cambridge together with you and your families and crying tears of joy and pride for Hamish; for Ana, Liz, and Spencer; and for the incomparable Harvard University Class of 2020. The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news. Like you, I thought I knew exactly where I would be on May 28, 2020: in Tercentenary Theatre welcoming you to the Harvard Alumni community as president of the Alumni Association. As a parent, I was also looking forward to celebrating the graduation of my son, Hamish, from the College, together with his roommates Ana, Liz, and Spencer and their families.While we have lost a magical day together, you have given us so much more to celebrate on May 28.We — the entire alumni community — are proud of your class. Like your families, we are proud of your hard work and achievement and, like your families, we are overwhelmingly proud of the way you have met the challenges of this year.To protect the people of Massachusetts from the COVID-19 pandemic you left your classes and, in many cases, your home at Harvard to move to a virtual mode of education. At the same time, you stepped up to serve your communities across the world. Some of you moved straight onto the front lines of the pandemic, like the Harvard Medical School Class of 2020 students who chose to graduate early so they could join the fight and those from the T.H. Chan School of Public Health who volunteered to provide the contact tracing system for Massachusetts. Others kept student-led organizations like the Phillips Brooks House Association, WHRB, and The Crimson operating. Business School students banded together to create networks that kept PPE flowing to Boston-area hospitals. You have reached out to mentor students whose elementary and high schools are closed, staged virtual voter registration drives, supported your families, fed medical workers, and more. My heart is ready to burst with admiration.So many of you physically left Harvard in mid-March, well before you expected. However, you will find that you never leave Harvard. Your classmates and your experiences will always remain yours and you will discover that Harvard is even bigger and better after you graduate.You all are part of a community that includes everyone who has ever studied or worked at the University, a community that reaches to all parts of the world. It is a community that will welcome you unconditionally in places you wouldn’t expect. Living in southern Australia, after growing up in Arctic Canada, and having lived and/or worked on every continent except the Antarctic, I can say this from personal experience. (I am also sure there is also a Harvard community in Antarctica. I just haven’t met them yet.)Harvard belongs to all of us. “Wherever you go, this community will be there for you. We are waiting to meet you and we already have your back.”last_img read more

Cereal survey determines fate of dining hall cereal menu

first_imgStudents who saw Tony the Tiger, Lucky the Leprechaun and Fred Flintstone in North and South Dining Hall Thursday afternoon were not simply sleep deprived from their first week back after break.These three beloved advertising cartoon mascots were invited to campus for Notre Dame’s annual Serious Cereal Survey event, where students vote for which cereals will be served in the dining halls next fall.The survey allowed students to choose the dining hall they normally eat at and then pick their three favorite cereals at that dining hall. Students were also able to sample new cereals including Oreo O’s breakfast cereal, Nutter Butter breakfast cereal and others to vote whether they want the dining hall to add these cereals to the menu.Currently, the top three most popular cereals at North Dining Hall are Special K with Red Berries, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Lucky Charms. The most popular cereals at South Dining Hall are Cracklin’ Oat Bran, Special K with Red Berries and Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Reggie Kalili, the assistant director for marketing for campus dining, said in an email.Kenzie Hengesbach, a sophomore media assistant for campus dining, encouraged students to fill out the cereal survey at North Dining Hall. She said people seemed to be enjoying the new cereals, but people also stood by the typical ones.“A lot of people today have actually gone for like Cracklin’ Oat Bran and just the classic cereals,” Hengesbach said.Brian LaVaque, a Kellogg’s area sales manager, attended the event at North Dining Hall to encourage students to fill out the survey and to promote the Kellogg’s cereals.“The cereal survey is a Notre Dame campus dining tradition, it’s been going on for a number of years, and Kellogg’s has been a part of it for a very long time,” LaVaque said. “It’s a great event to get student’s exposed to some new cereals that everyone has offer and give the students a choice to pick what cereals they want to see in the dining halls next fall.”LaVaque specifically drew students’ attention to one of Kellogg’s newest breakfast cereals.“Today we have all of our classic cereals out here, Frosted Flakes, Fruit Loops, Apple Jacks and Special K Red Berries, but the new one we want to get students to taste is the Cinnamon Frosted Flakes,” he said.As freshman Caroline Tracey sampled the cereals, she said her go-to cereal at the dining hall is Lucky Charms, but she hopes the dining hall will consider serving Rice Krispies.“They have the Cocoa Krispies, but not Rice Krispies which drives me crazy because then I have to buy the normal one at LaFun,” Tracey said.Reflecting on the cereals she ate as a child, Tracey said her favorite cereal has changed over the course of her life.“When I was a kid I ate a lot of Honey Bunches of Oats and Rice Krispies,” she said. “My mom wouldn’t buy Lucky Charms, so I would only get it at my friends’ houses, so now I eat it a lot.”Tracey said she usually eats cereal in the dining hall for breakfast or for a snack, but freshman Helton Rodriguez said he thinks cereal could be either breakfast, a snack or dessert.“A snack to me would just be the cereal by itself. Breakfast would be with milk, and maybe bananas and strawberries mixed in with it. And then for dessert, I’ve had yogurt and cereal with maybe jam on top,” Rodriguez said. “I think it all depends on how you make it.”last_img read more

Cornell Cooperative Extension Holds STORY Curriculum

first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window) MGN Stock ImageJAMESTOWN — The Cornell Cooperative Extension asks, “What do modern farming practices, invasive insect species, and robot fashion all have in common?”They say they are all curriculum found in the Science Technology Opportunities for Rural Youth (STORY) curriculum. Molly Brown, 4-H Educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County, began teaching with the STORY program last year as part of a three-year, grant funded by the Ralph Wilson Jr. Foundation. While the program was originally envisioned as live-teaching encounters, it has been restructured to meld with the needs of the community while facing a pandemic.“This year, we’re partnering with Chautauqua Institution and made STORY into a type of virtual programming that is very hands on and it’s actually not face-to-face,” Brown explains. “We’re not doing any of it with Zoom. Instead, there are discussion boards and interactions between me and the kids.”Submitted ImageThrough their Learning Management System, Chautauqua Institution is making the STORY curricula available to the public. Learners do not need to be a member of the Institution in order to purchase and participate in the program. Proceeds from the sale of STORY curricula will be shared between Chautauqua Institution and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County. More information is available at https://learn.chq.org/. “Chautauqua Institution is holding all of this really incredible education so that even though they are not doing in-person programming this season, people can still purchase and be a part of the programming,” Brown says. “You can go through it at your own pace, and if you have questions you can message me and I’ll get back to you.”Videos and printable activities help round out each interactive adventure. The three courses Brown has assembled involve using robots and fashion to promote healthy body image, learning about farm anatomy and modern agriculture, and invasive species in our region. The courses will be released one at a time in the Chautauqua Institution’s Learning Management System.“The first one that launched is invasive species, and we’re doing a citizen’s science program to have the kids build mosquito traps and put them on their properties,” Brown explains.The traps will collect a variety of mosquitoes and potentially one of particular interest: the Asian Tiger Mosquito. This highly-invasive species was introduced to the United States from Asia in the mid-1980’s and is capable of carrying and transmitting disease. They can be trapped safely by creating the right environment for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. Participating in this program also helps Cornell University track the prevalence of this mosquito in the area.“Once we have eggs, we hatch the eggs and put the lid of the trap on and raise the mosquitos,” Brown states. “And then we freeze them and find out if we have Asian tiger mosquitos. All the research goes back to Cornell.”The STORY Program is one of many programs offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County (CCE-Chautauqua). CCE-Chautauqua is a subordinate governmental agency with an educational mission that operates under a form of organization and administration approved by Cornell University as agent for the State of New York.It is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The association is part of the national cooperative extension system, an educational partnership between County, State, and Federal governments. As New York’s land grant university Cornell administers the system in this state.Each Cornell Cooperative Extension association is an independent employer that is governed by an elected Board of Directors with general oversight from Cornell. All associations work to meet the needs of the counties in which they are located as well as state and national goals.

Big Proposed Australian Gas Project Faces a ‘Zero Value’ Problem

first_imgBig Proposed Australian Gas Project Faces a ‘Zero Value’ Problem FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Northern Star (News Corp. Australia):Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is playing into the hands of the gas cartel ‘ripping off Australia’ by encouraging the NSW Government to approve a controversial gas project in the state’s north, according to an energy analyst.The Prime Minister’s comments “strongly encouraging” the Berejiklian government to approve the Narrabri Gas Project are “unbelievable”, said Bruce Robertson of the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis.In fact, the massive project – which environmentalists say threatens the Pilliga forest – is literally worthless on Santos’ books.“This project is valued at that level because at the moment it has zero reserves of gas,” Mr Robertson said.But Santos  is in a life and death struggle over billions of dollars in mounting losses incurred by its gamble on the East Coast gas export industry, particularly its share in one of the three Gladstone LNG “trains” worth a combined $70 billion.The Gladstone plants and related gas fields came online just as world gas and oil prices went into freefall. There is now a huge global glut which could last years.And yet Australia is paying through the nose for gas because the cartel – Shell, Santos, Origin, and BHP-Exxon – have pushed up prices by exporting the bulk of domestic gas overseas through Gladstone.The industry is now desperate for gas – anything, even a gas project which has zero proven reserves.“What they’ve got to do is keep feeding the beast,” Mr Robertson said.“In the last result pre-tax (Santos) wrote off over a billion dollars.“They’re basically hoping for a war in the Middle East to get them out of this.”Mr Robertson argues this economic disaster could push Australian manufacturing to the wall in a “second wave” of deindustrialisation.“According to the ACCC we should be paying $5.30 a gigajoule, and we are currently paying $10.16. We’re paying two times what we should be,” he said.“The employment consequences of this are dire. Action simply has to be taken to reduce the costs (of gas) to reasonable levels.”More: Narrabri gas project has zero book value: analystlast_img read more

U.S. Military, Panamanian Agencies and NGOs Donate and Deliver Aid to Panama

first_imgBy Dialogo July 18, 2013 SOUTHCOM’s Partnering Directorate and Panama-based Civil Affairs soldiers collaborated with the Rotary Club in Panama City, Panama, and Rotary District 6080 in Missouri to provide 270 BIO-Sand water filtration systems, 10 pallets of wheelchairs, and five pallets of men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing to the people of Panama. The donation was valued at more than $34,000 and was part of a Rotary project that began more than three years ago to provide much-needed aid to communities throughout Panama. SOUTHCOM, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency and the Civil Affairs Team were able to facilitate air transport through the DENTON Program from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, to Panama. The purpose of the Denton Program is to allow U.S. based non-governmental sources to transport humanitarian aid at little or no cost to the donor. The Missouri National Guard, the State Partnership Program partner for Panama, provided ground transportation from the Rotary Club’s warehouse in Jefferson City, Missouri, to Whiteman Air Force Base.last_img read more

Gov. Wolf Announces $1.5 Million in PAsmart Job Training Grants in Southwest Pennsylvania

first_img Education,  PAsmart,  Workforce Development Harrisburg, PA – Building on his plan to expand job training for Pennsylvanians, Governor Tom Wolf today announced the first PAsmart Apprenticeship and Next Generation Industry Partnerships grants for southwestern Pennsylvania. The governor launched PAsmart last year to increase STEM and computer science education and job training to prepare workers with the skills that growing businesses need.“Pennsylvania’s economic future depends on a well-educated and highly-trained workforce,” said Governor Wolf. “These PAsmart grants allow more people to get on-the-job training for good jobs in southwest Pennsylvania.

Apprenticeships provide hands-on opportunities for workers to learn skills while earning a paycheck. Next Generation Industry Partnerships connect employers in the same industry to provide job training.The governor’s budget unveiled Tuesday builds on the success of PAsmart to create opportunities for Pennsylvanians from birth to retirement. The governor’s Statewide Workforce, Education, and Accountability Program (SWEAP) expands access to early childhood education, increases investments in schools, and partners with the private sector to build on the PAsmart initiative.The governor is also creating the Keystone Economic Development and Workforce Command Center to bring together government, schools and industry like never before. The departments of Community and Economic Development, Labor & Industry (L&I), and State will work with external leaders including Chamber of Business and Industry President Gene Barr, and AFL-CIO President Rick Bloomingdale to find innovative solutions that close the skills gap.The following are the PAsmart apprenticeship and Next Generation Industry Partnerships grants awarded in southwest Pennsylvania.
