Clarity, he noted, was important. “This looked and felt like a terrorist attack,” Patrick recalled. As a result, online rumors quickly circulated, falsely identifying various people with ties to the Middle East as suspects. Patrick’s office had to quickly quell these false reports. “As a Black man, I am very self-conscious of how easy it is for people to presume all manner of ill intent or bad behavior on me without knowing anything else about me.”As the search for the bombers continued, he said, the involvement of an informed public proved vital on many fronts. The capture of suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev hiding in a Watertown backyard began with a call from a concerned homeowner. But long before that, the generosity of thousands helped feed and house runners from around the world who had been stranded by the tragedy. “I got a great piece of advice, which I will never forget, from my chief of staff at the time. He said acknowledge and call up the acts of kindness that regular people are showing to others, and I did that.”Reflecting on the COVID-19 outbreak, Patrick expressed some optimism over the prospects of reversing vast inequities in the nation. “There’s something very exciting about this moment, which is that all of the hardship, all of the suffering exposed by the pandemic means we have an opportunity to confront our unfinished business.”The panel that followed focused on how to handle the divisions that have grown increasingly toxic. Open discussion, the panelists agreed, is crucial. The ability to engage in it is also a teachable skill. For that reason, Mankiw explained, for his freshman seminar, “The Economist’s View of the World,” he makes a point of choosing students with opposing views. “Six from the left, and six from the right,” he said.“Disagreeing with someone and having these difficult conversations is a practiced skill,” said Neeley. “For example, don’t attack the person, challenge the argument.”To engage, added Jackson, involves learning to “sit with discomfort.” “As long as your disagreement is not disrespecting me as a human being, I’m totally fine with that,” she said.Such active listening can bridge divides, noted Fung. Following the 1994 shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Brookline, he recalled, activists on both sides of the abortion divide began to meet, searching for common ground. This resulted in an opinion piece, published in The Boston Globe, that acknowledged both their differences and their common humanity. Calling for a return to such “civil dialogue,” he acknowledged its difficulty. “It’s going to be a while before many of us can get where we see the inherent goodness in our opponents,” he said.Bringing the event to a close, Sherri Charleston, Harvard’s first chief diversity and inclusion officer, summed up the goals for the series and for our country. “It will take continual exploration to think through the most difficult questions that face us in a way that ideally allows us to have more people involved in a dialogue about how we shape the future of our country, our institution, and the world, including as many voices as we possibly can.” Political leaders are facing new and daunting challenges in a country arguably more divided than at any point since at least the Vietnam War. However, there have been other divisive periods, and on Monday evening, the online event “Leading in the Midst of Polarized Times” looked to a political veteran and academics for the lessons of the past.The inaugural event of the Harvard Community Dialogues Series, hosted by the Office of the President and Office for Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging, the 90-minute online discussion featured a conversation with former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick ’78, J.D. ’82 and followed with a panel discussion with Archon Fung, Winthrop Laflin McCormack Professor of Citizenship and Self-Government; Greg Mankiw, Robert M. Beren Professor of Economics; Tsedal Neeley, Naylor Fitzhugh Professor of Business Administration; and Shahara Jackson, Ed.L.D. candidate at the Graduate School of Education and president of the Harvard Black Graduate Student Alliance.Invoking the “commitment to the truth” inherent in Harvard’s motto, Veritas, President Larry Bacow opened the event. “This commitment to civil discourse has never been more important,” he said, describing the goals of the series. “We can all learn from each other. That is what these conversations are all about.”Moderator Carrie Johnson, a 2020 Nieman Fellow and the justice correspondent for NPR, opened the discussion with Patrick by asking him to revisit the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, which occurred during his second term as governor. Patrick described a fast-moving crisis, during which very little was initially known.One of his first responsibilities, Patrick noted, was to communicate with an understandably panicked public. “We tried to communicate often and to acknowledge each question, to take our time in answering questions, and to tell people what we could tell them, and to stop short of what we couldn’t.” “I got a great piece of advice, which I will never forget, from my chief of staff at the time. He said acknowledge and call up the acts of kindness that regular people are showing to others, and I did that.” — Deval Patrick The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news.

Published on November 26, 2016 at 9:08 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @ChrisLibonati PITTSBURGH — Former Pittsburgh head coach Johnny Majors slipped between people congregated outside the Pitt locker room. He marched with his head down and, to no one in particular, he boomed about the game he had just watched.Haven’t seen anything like it in my 48 years of coaching, he said as he walked through the high-ceiling bowels of Heinz Field.FBS football hadn’t seen anything like it either.Syracuse (4-8, 2-6 Atlantic Coast) and Pittsburgh (8-4, 5-3) combined for 137 points on Saturday — an FBS record — in the Panthers 76-61 victory over the Orange. While the 76 points allowed was a school record for SU, it reached new heights offensively as well. The 61 points were the most points a Dino Babers-coached Syracuse team scored all season. Quarterback Zack Mahoney narrowly missed a few records, finishing 42 yards shy of SU’s single-game passing yards record, two completions short of SU’s record for completions in a game and five attempts short of Ryan Nassib’s attempts record in a game.Mahoney completed 43-of-61 passes for five touchdowns and an interception. The quarterback’s performance turned on that interception. The SU quarterback played better after it, allowing SU to click better offensively.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He threw that pick-six and came off the field with his shoulders down and all of that stuff. I told him, ‘If you don’t throw the ball, we can’t win,” Babers said. “So we are going to keep throwing the ball and if you throw a pick-six then you just throw a pick-six. But the next throw is going to be a touchdown. We can’t win without you. You are going to throw and you are going to throw well.’“I don’t know exactly what he did after that but I think he did a little bit better.”Syracuse came out of the half down, 35-21, and Pittsburgh was set up to receive the half’s opening kickoff. The Panthers had scored touchdowns on their previous four drives and it appeared SU wouldn’t be able to stop the Pitt offense. After allowing a quick first down on two plays, the Orange forced two incomplete passes and stuffed James Conner for a 1-yard gain.Mahoney dropped back to pass on third down and, looking to avoid the Panthers’ pass rush, tried to quickly throw the ball to the left sideline. Pitt’s Dane Jackson returned the interception for a touchdown and put the Panthers up, 42-21.With Syracuse down, 56-34, Mahoney and wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo went on a run of their own. Etta-Tawo finished off Syracuse’s final three drives of the season with a touchdown on each. In those drives, Etta-Tawo hauled in a combined six catches for 100 yards and three touchdowns. The touchdowns pushed his game total to five and his season total to 14, setting a program record for receiving touchdowns in a game and tying the program’s season touchdown receptions record.“Reality set in for the team,” Etta-Tawo said of what flipped the offense’s struggles in the prior three games. “The team realized that it was the seniors’ last game.”After the interception, Syracuse scored 40 points — more than it had scored in a game all year — in fewer than 30 minutes. In all, Syracuse racked up 668 yards. Its 440 passing yards and 228 rushing yards both set highs during Babers’ tenure as head coach.“We just started clicking,” Mahoney said. “I think when I saw them getting tired and us clicking, it was a big morale booster.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+

Observation: the human brain appears able to use lactate as fuel instead of glucose during strenuous exercise (see Science Daily). Deduction: From an evolutionary perspective, the result of this study is a no-brainer. Imagine what could have or did happen to all of the organisms that lost their wits along with their glucose when running from predators. They were obviously a light snack for the animals able to use lactate.This gem was from Gerald Weismann, editor of the FASEB journal in which the study was published. Weissmann did not explain why humans didn’t evolve some means to circumvent this threat of becoming crunchy brain candy to tigers – a little hot sauce surprise in the cerebellum, perhaps. But then, it would be tough for the victim possessing that innovation to pass on his genes. Presumably one can only “imagine what could have or did happen” when one loses his wits.This is the same Gerald Weismann that won SEQOTW two months ago for updating Darwin with On the Origin of Tumors by Natural Selection (08/13/2008). This time, Weissmann was absolutely right. From an evolutionary perspective, it was a no-brainer.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

A day after the police fired in the air to disperse 500 villagers descending on a security camp in Dantewada district in Chhattisgarh to oppose it, the police on Wednesday claimed they held a “positive interaction” with those residing within the camp’s security perimeter.“There is a remarkable change in the approach of the villagers of Potali. Women and children in particular turned up at the security camp and held a positive interaction with troops,” says Sundarraj P., Inspector General of Police (Bastar Range).Carrying bows, arrows and axes, residents of Potali, 56 km from Dantewada and neighbouring villages on Tuesday confronted security personnel head-on to oppose the permanent security camp that was set up there on November 11. As the situation seemed to have spiralled out of control during discussions between villagers and the District Collector and the Superintendent of Police, the police fired blank rounds in the air to disperse the crowd. Mr. Sundarraj claimed villagers were under duress to launch an agitation. “Maoists mobilised villagers to protest against the camp. They didn’t have any other option but to take part. Otherwise, they would be killed,” he says.Strategic locationThe camp is of strategic importance for the forces as it falls in the volatile Aranpur region, which forms a connecting corridor between the Darbha division and South Bastar division for Maoists, explains Mr. Sundarraj.“That’s why Maoists are trying their best to derail our efforts in setting up a camp. It’ll be tough for their Malangir area committee to continue its activities once operations begin here,” he adds.“The area is considered a Maoist bastion,” says Devhans Rathore, Sub-Divisional Officer of Police, Kirandul. “When the situation got tense on Tuesday, we fired eight-ten blank rounds which made villagers run helter-skelter.” | Photo Credit: Special Arrangement Members of the District Reserve Guard interacting with villagers of Potali in Dantewada on November 13, 2019 According to the police, the development of the region is the “main antidote for the Maoist menace”. Therefore, under the Trust-Development-Security model, the police plans to win over locals through credible and transparent policing, speed up road construction and rehabilitate Maoists willing to surrender.However, Joga Poyam, vice-sarpanch of Potali, asserts the protest was independent and Maoists did not force them to take part. “Villagers are scared. They get caught in the crossfire between Maoists and security forces each time and bear the cost. Sometimes, when the police are unable to catch Maoists, they come for us.”Tribal women, who practise the age-old tradition of fetching wood and leaves from forests, do not want to be harassed by troops, he says. “Resentment is simmering in the village. We’ll continue our agitation.”On Wednesday, during discussions between neighbouring panchayats and security forces, villagers demanded they not be harassed or intimidated while going to fields, located as far as 5 km away in the hills, and markets.“They told us they had not set up the camp on our land but government’s, and that they won’t trouble us,” says Mr. Poyam. “They agreed with us and want to part of the development process,” says Mr. Rathore. “We told them we’re there for their own safety. If they don’t do anything anti-social, we won’t trouble them. If they need anything, they can come to us. Our doors are open.”’When will militarisation come to an end?’This being the fourth locals-led protest in a month against security camps in the Bastar region, Bela Bhatia, lawyer and social activist, believes that at the bottom of all of it lies the question: when will militarisation of the region come to an end?“Aranpur station area is already notorious for numerous fake encounters,” claims Ms. Bhatia. “Now they are moving even closer to locals, and they don’t want the camp there because they have been at the receiving end of fake encounters, sexual assault and arbitrary arrests for years.”Often, those living close to camps were arbitrarily stopped and questioned while going to fields and markets, she alleges.Ms. Bhatia believes the District Reserve Guard (DRG), composed mainly of surrendered Maoists, is now at the forefront of the anti-Maoist strategy of the police, while paramilitaries have faded in the backdrop.“Sometimes, they are deployed in areas where they were earlier active as Maoists. This helps them identify those who had attended meetings or given Maoists food back then. Meanwhile, it’s unclear whether these people still take part in such activities to the same extent or not,” she says.It is unclear whether their participation in such activities is voluntary or not in the first place as villagers are not in a position to say no to Maoists, she adds. “These protests, as I see it, is also due to the fear of an increased presence of the DRG in the area.”Mr. Sundarraj says typically a camp is set up by the DRG and the police. Later, if the situation warrants, paramilitaries can be moved in.
Italy ‘Enough about Balotelli!’ – Bonucci frustrated by focus on Italy striker after France defeat Jamie Smith Last updated 1 year ago 07:14 6/2/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Italy Mario Balotelli France v Italy France Friendlies The Azzurri forward wasted a number of chances for Italy against France, but Bonucci defended the striker after a 3-1 loss Leonardo Bonucci says it is time to reduce the focus on Italy striker Mario Balotelli after the Azzurri fell to the first defeat of Roberto Mancini’s reign against France.Goals from Samuel Umtiti, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele earned Les Bleus a 3-1 win in Nice on Friday, Bonucci’s reply a mere consolation.Balotelli struck on his return from four years in international exile in Mancini’s maiden match in charge against Saudi Arabia, but only hit the target with two of his six shots at his home ground, Nice’s Allianz Riviera.

Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now And Bonucci, who captained Italy despite Mancini suggesting the armband could go to Balotelli, is fed up with the media’s focus on the former AC Milan and Manchester City forward.”Enough questions about Balotelli, enough!” Bonucci snapped at Rai Sport post-match. “He makes mistakes like everyone else, he scores goals like everyone else.”He is working hard, he has gained experience and came here with the right attitude, but enough talking about Balotelli. We are a team, we cannot put too much pressure on him or minimise the impact of all the other players.”France completely outplayed Italy and at times looked like running riot, but Mancini – who offered opportunities to newcomers Mattia Caldara, Rolando Mandragora and Domenico Berardi – sought positives after tasting defeat for the first time.”This can help to gain experience. Nobody likes to lose, ever, but there were moments where we had the chances to make it 2-2,” the Italy coach said to Rai Sport. “Naturally, there is a difference between us and France at the moment.”It was a totally different game to Saudi Arabia and the players did very well. Perhaps the most important thing is that the debutants did well and if we continue like this, in a year we’ll be at their level, or close to it.”At this moment, unfortunately, France are superior to us and have so many players available to them. We must work and learn to get close to them, but we’re on the right track.”@FrenchTeam score at least goals Italy for theth time.

I think they are one of the favourites for the World Cup.”
