Support for student life

first_imgHarvard’s undergraduates will compete and perform across the country and enjoy the rituals of residential life on campus again this year, thanks to renewed support from Dean Evelynn M. Hammonds’ Student Life Fund.“Students have consistently expressed a desire for funding to help with travel and their work on House committees,” Hammonds said. “I’m very pleased that the College was able to provide these resources for the past two years.”Hammonds announced today (Sept. 9) that she will make available up to $50,000 to fund domestic travel and House-based events during the 2010-11 academic year. Organizations with domestic travel needs can apply for grants by accessing the Common Grant Application. Hammonds will work with the Office of Student Life to review and determine awards. House committees as well as the First-Year Social Committee can apply for grants to fund formals and other events in their House.Last year, grants from the Student Life Fund enabled Harvard’s undergraduates to fight fiercely in Denver, make audiences laugh in Saratoga Springs, and dance the night away on campus.Harvard Taekwondo used the support to pay for accommodations in Denver, where members competed in the National Collegiate Championships. Anh-Khoa Tran ’10 qualified for the U.S. national team and said his success — and that of his teammates — would not have been possible without help from the dean’s fund.“The grant allowed us to come a few days early and get acclimated to the elevation of Denver before jumping into the competition,” he said. “Furthermore, we made a team trip out to Colorado Springs to visit the Olympic Training Center, and we were able to meet some former Taekwondo National Team members and train at their studios.”The College Dean’s Student Life Fund also helped Harvard’s Immediate Gratification Players (IGP) wow audiences at the National College Comedy Festival in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.“We surely did benefit from the fund greatly,” said IGP member Scott Levin ’11. “It really helped us to have a super successful year as an organization.”Although the Dean’s Student Life Fund enabled Harvard students to travel hundreds of miles from Cambridge, it also had a great impact here on campus. House formals are often some of the most memorable events of an undergraduate’s time at the University. Samantha Houston ’11 of the Adams House Committee said that support from the Student Life Fund helped make last year’s formal “exceptional.”“The fund allowed us to hire a professional swing band and to construct elaborate decorations,” she said. “Because we do the formal in the common spaces of Adams House, the band and decorations were essential to creating a different and special setting.”Hammonds says that her commitment to the Student Life Fund stems from a desire to ensure that Harvard’s undergraduates make the most of the time they spend outside the classroom and to support the activities of the Houses.last_img read more

Plexiglass will be used during the vice presidential debate, but is it effective?

first_imgThe changes come after President Donald Trump tested positive for the coronavirus last Friday. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — The Vice Presidential debate on Oct. 7 will look a bit different than years past; for starters, the candidates will stand 12-feet apart and will be shielded each by plexiglass. Emmi says that during the summer Binghamton Plate Glass was very busy with demand as offices, schools, and businesses are implementing the material into their spaces. Plexiglass, she adds, is a resin material which is high use for barrier and safety, adding that it has different thickness levels and can be formed into a variety of sizes. Diane Emmi, general manager at Binghamton Plate Glass, says it is. While she says it won’t entirely protect you from the virus, it does help. But what exactly is plexiglass? And is it effective? “Creating a barrier between droplets and air particles that can be contaminated is very important and the distance and the barrier really make a difference in controlling everything,” said Emmi. She says it might even be the future of offices. You can find out more information about Binghamton Plate Glass here.last_img read more

With heavy hearts, Allderdice Dragons win second straight City League title, three days after Squirrel Hill shooting

RASHAWN HARVEY, ALLDERDICE DALEN DUGGER, ALLDERDICE THE ALLDERDICE DRAGONS celebrate their second consecutive City League football championship, Oct. 30, at Cupples Stadium, defeating Westinghouse, 18-8. (Photos by Courier photographer Will McBride)The City League football championship scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 27, at Cupples Stadium was postponed because of the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill.The game, featuring Allderdice and Westinghouse, was rescheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 7 p.m.“We gave the team off on Saturday and we got together on Sunday and had a meal and had a long conversation about the things that happened and tried to put it in perspective because as adults our coaches have a broader perspective than the kids do,” said Allderdice coach Jerry Haslett.  “We had a couple team meals together and we tried to just bring everybody together because it was a serious, serious tragedy.” DALEN DUGGER of Allderdice, left, attempts to elude Willie Knight of Westinghouse. ALLDERDICE COACHJERRY HASLETT The defending City League champion Dragons got off to a slow start and only had a 6-0 halftime lead over the Bulldogs of Westinghouse. Rashawn Harvey’s 34-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Dalen Dugger in the second quarter were the only points in the first half for ‘Dice. “Offensively we really didn’t change too much but defensively we lined up in some different formations and things that they never saw before and I think it confused them,” said Haslett. “Our kids really played hard and by lining up in a different defense than we played all year and it worked.”Westinghouse took the opening kickoff of the second half and drove the football all the way down to the Allderdice 5, but on fourth-and-3, they were stopped short of the first down.That seemed to spark the Dragons as they scored the next 12 points to pull away.First came a methodical 96-yard drive that ended with a Rashaun Caldwell 23-yard touchdown run.Dugger’s early fourth quarter run put the Dragons up 18-0.Westinghouse was led by sophomore quarterback Cameron “Super Cam” Jones, who ran for 155 yards on 27 carries. Jones’ 5-yard touchdown run and a Mike Massey 2-point conversion cut the lead to 18-8.The game ended with the 18-8 score and Allderdice was able to celebrate back-to-back championships.“This game was very important to us because of the community in Squirrel Hill and hopefully our victory will help in the healing process a little bit,” said Haslett.  “However, when I coached at Oliver we won a City League championship and the one thing I figured out as a coach is how important a kicker can be and our kicker got hurt, outside of football, last week. Because we lost our kicker we were 0-for-3 on extra points.”Westinghouse High School has struggled mightily in City League football for nearly two decades and has not won a championship since 1996.Bulldogs football player, Khalil Andrews Logan, was shot and killed in September and the football team dedicated the season to him.“I give a lot of credit to coach Monte Robinson and his staff for guiding the Bulldogs to the championship game,” said Luther Dupree, host of Steel City Sports World. “Allderdice just had too much size and Dalen Dugger, 6-feet-6 and winner of the Jeron Grayson Player of the Game trophy, was too much.” Like us at @NewPghCourier on Twitter read more

Rutan to attempt record in rocket

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Rutan conducted the initial flight testing of the rocket plane in the summer of 2001. Rutan has made 16 flights in the aircraft. The rocket engines on the aircraft will burn for about two minutes. During the flight, Rutan will bring the plane up to an altitude of about 12,000 feet. “Hopefully I’ll be close to Cal City when they (the rocket engines) do burn out,” Rutan said. “I hope it goes routine, but it is a horse of a different color. It is a rocket system.” The aircraft is being used by XCOR to develop technologies for routine, safe, reliable and cheap rocket propulsion for aircraft. “When we first asked Dick to be our test pilot, we had no money at the time,” said XCOR spokeswoman Aleta Jackson. “We told him we would put him in the record books. This is our thank you to Dick Rutan.” There is no record for a rocket plane in the EZ-Rocket’s weight class, which is for an airplane between 500 kilograms and 1,000 kilograms, or 1,100 to 2,200 pounds. There was a flight of 122 feet that was made by a rocket-powered plane that weighed under 300 kilograms, said Art Greenfield of the National Aeronautic Association. The NAA will have an observer on hand for Saturday’s flight. If the NAA approves the record, it will be submitted for recognition by the Federation Aeronautique International as a world record, Greenfield said. Rutan is a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel who drew international attention when he and co-pilot Jeana Yeager flew the Voyager aircraft around the world in 1986. The flight was the first nonstop, unrefueled around-the-world trip. XCOR is also trying to line up another first – the first rocket-powered delivery of mail. The company is proposing to deliver mail bound from Mojave to California City, but those arrangements are still pending. The aircraft will carry a small packet of mementos for XCOR workers. Plans call for keeping the aircraft at the California City Airport at least through Dec. 10, when a Toys for Tots campaign will be held at the facility.

MOJAVE – Dick Rutan, who got into the record books by flying around the world in 1986, is scheduled to make another record-setting flight – this time a hop of about 11 miles. Rutan is scheduled to fly XCOR’s EZ-Rocket aircraft on Saturday from the Mojave Airport to the California City Airport, setting a point-to-point record for a rocket-powered aircraft. “It will be the shortest long-distance flight record,” Rutan said. “I have a lot of records, but I don’t have one in a rocket-powered aircraft.” The EZ-Rocket is a modified Long-EZ, a popular kit plane designed by Rutan’s brother Burt. The airplane is powered by two 400-pound thrust rocket engines. last_img read more

Clinton fund invests in Africa’s girls

first_imgThere are 24-million African girls who will be denied an education. The Girls Charge initiative aims to lower that number. (Image: We – The solution) Sulaiman PhilipOver the next five years, the Clinton Global Initiative, the Mastercard Foundation and the Brookings Institution will collaborate with more than 30 companies, civil society organisations and governments to improve learning and leadership opportunities for African girls.The $600-million Girls Charge – Collaborative for Harnessing Ambition and Resources for Girls – fund will subsidise improvements in primary and secondary school facilities, as well as the quality of the education received through better teacher training and the provision of educational resources. It is hoped those who benefit will become grassroots activists and role models for the girls who follow.Progress has been made in Africa over the last two decades; the number of children attending primary school has increased and the difference in numbers of girls and boys in school has shrunk. However, a large number of those girls either drop out or do not get the opportunity of a secondary education.Watch Hillary Clinton discuss the Collaborative for Harnessing Ambition and Resources for Girls, or Charge, fund at the 2014 Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting in September:These issues are starkly brought up in the Dadaab refugee complex in northeastern Kenya. It is the largest in the world, and holds half-a-million Somali refugees who fled the civil war in their home country. Originally designed in the early 1990s to hold 90 000 migrants for a short time, 20 years later it has spawned satellite camps and is home to 500 000 people.Despite the hard-scrabble existence in Dadaab, a community has been created. There are small businesses and places of worship. People marry, have children and raise families. Unfortunately, however, the people of Dadaab have continued to practice a disturbing convention: denying female children an education. There are 180 000 children attending schools in the camp, just 38% of all the school-aged children. Only a third of girls between the ages of five and 13 go to school; for girls between 14 and 18 that number drops to 1 in 20.Resident Hawa Ahmed is raising six children on her own, four boys and two girls. Her sons are allowed to attend school while her daughters are consigned to cleaning and cooking. Learning how to care for a family is all the education her daughters require, she believes. Using a saying common to the refugees in Dadaab she chillingly she explained to researchers: “Gabar ama gunti rageed ama god hakaga jirto (a girl should either be married or in the grave).”In Ethiopia, Fatimah Bamum has to drop out of primary school because her father refuses to buy pencils and paper, despite the academic promise she shows. When the school year ends, so will her interest in maths and Amharic, Ethiopia’s official language. The only girl in her class and one of only three in the school, she is also facing the onset of puberty in a school with no water, bathrooms or privacy. In Africa, 24 million girls are robbed of an education because schools lack toilets and water.Simple hygiene, threats to their safety and the poor quality of education and opportunities in the most marginalised communities in Africa will be addressed by the fund. Once these challenges have been met, partners like Care and the Mastercard Foundation will work with the girls to help them acquire transferable skills. Those who show exceptional academic ability will be given university scholarships.It is not simply about ensuring that girls get the same access to education as boys; countries that invest in gender equality in education experience greater economic growth. Good quality education makes it possible to create robust, open societies. Every additional year of schooling increases economic growth by 2%. Women have been identified as the key to economic growth in Africa. Today they are small scale entrepreneurs but a continent of educated women will create leaders who will have fewer children and will be able to take better care of them. Two-thirds of Africa’s 153-million illiterate adults are women. (Image: Unesco)Partners like the Malala Fund and Echidna Giving will train, mentor and fund leaders in education with the idea that they will give back to their communities. They are especially committed to increasing the number and quality of female teachers.As more children go to school the need for teachers has grown as well. In 2012, Unesco reported that Africa would need to train a million more teachers by 2015, a 63% increase on numbers at the time, when there were just 3.1 million teachers on the continent and just 30% of those were women. In Dadaab this is already happening. Refugees who have completed secondary school are being trained as teachers. Women make up just 17% of the first group of teacher trainees but as more girls finish school and the pool of women increases, it is hoped they will make up at least 40% of future groups.One of the first group, a teacher born in the camp, believes that it gives them the opportunity to take skills back into Somalia to help rebuild the country; and if that does not come to pass, they will be able to change the camp from a place of no hope to one remade. As they said: “This programme will give us the capability and the knowledge we need to become better teachers and improve our students’ — and our own — lives.”Hillary Clinton in conversation with Graça Machel:last_img read more

Swing and a miss: Yankees in another 0-2 playoff hole

first_imgHouston Astros’ Jose Altuve scores the game-winning run past New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez during the ninth inning of Game 2 of baseball’s American League Championship Series Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017, in Houston. The Astros won 2-1 to take a 2-0 lead in the series.

Severino threw only 62 pitches.“I think it is my responsibility to protect this kid,” Girardi said. “I couldn’t take a chance.”Girardi said Severino checked out fine with team doctors. The pitcher certainly didn’t agree with getting pulled so early.“I told him I was good. They told me they saw something,” Severino said. “I told them that I was good and I wanted to go pitch. … I feel great. My arm feels great. I can go 20 or 30 innings more.” Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City LATEST STORIES Read Next Maybe they just need to get to the potential elimination games — the Yankees don’t seem to lose those.“We’ve been facing some tough pitchers and some tough games,” rookie slugger Aaron Judge said. “We’re just going to keep going out there and keep fighting.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutNew York catcher Gary Sanchez was unable to come up with a short-hop relay throw from shortstop Didi Gregorius with Jose Altuve charging toward the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Astros won 2-1 Saturday for a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven AL Championship Series.Sanchez said he simply dropped the ball on a play he’s used to making. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. center_img Game 3 is Monday night at Yankee Stadium, with CC Sabathia scheduled to pitch for New York against Charlie Morton.The Yankees have lost seven straight ALCS games dating to 2010.Verlander was done by the time hard-throwing Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman entered in the ninth with a scoreless streak of 18 2/3 innings dating to the last time he gave up a run, on Aug. 25 against Seattle. But then Altuve hit a one-out single and scored when Carlos Correa lined a double into the right-center gap.Judge cut off the ball at the edge of the warning track, but his throw went over the head of second baseman Starlin Castro to Gregorius on one hop at second base. Gregorius wheeled and, perhaps impeded a bit by Correa’s popup slide at second, short-hopped his throw to Sanchez.The ball arrived in plenty of time to get Altuve, who raced all the way around from first, but Sanchez couldn’t make a clean pick and the ball squirted away as Altuve slid in safely with the winning run.“If he comes up with it, it’s an out,” said Girardi, who quickly inquired with umpires as the Astros and their fans were starting a frenzied celebration. “I just wanted to make sure there was no interference. I didn’t see any interference at second. … It was a popup slide, that’s legal. You’re kind of hoping.”Correa homered in the fourth for the Astros — a play that evoked memories of Jeffery Maier in the 1996 ALCS at Yankee Stadium — when a 12-year-old Houston fan reached for the liner just over the right-field wall. The ball appeared to already be beyond the reach of Judge, who was still moving toward the fence when the ball ricocheted off the boy’s glove on top of the wall and into the seats.“I got back there a little late. He took a good swing on a ball off the plate,” Judge said. “I just wasn’t able to get back and get a good read to the wall and get up there and make a play.”The 6-foot-7 Judge had a homer-robbing grab in Game 3 of the ALDS, when the Yankees won 1-0 to stay alive in that series.A few pitches after Correa’s homer, Girardi and a trainer went out to check on starter Luis Severino when he uncharacteristically wound his pitching arm a few times. The 23-year-old right-hander stayed in the game then, and got the inning-ending out on a comebacker that appeared to strike the wrist of his non-pitching hand.

So just like in the Division Series, the Yankees are down 0-2 and headed back home.“It’s not like we haven’t been here before,” said manager Joe Girardi, who turned 53 on Saturday. “But these are two tough losses.”In their best-of-five set against the 102-win Cleveland Indians, the Yankees won three straight games when facing elimination to get to their first ALCS since 2012. And that was after winning a win-or-go-home wild-card game against Minnesota.But after striking out 14 times in the ALCS opener, including 10 against Keuchel in his seven innings, the Yankees whiffed another 13 times Saturday against Verlander, who threw 124 pitches in a complete game.ADVERTISEMENT BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary View commentslast_img read more
