Documents of freedom

first_img“Forever free.”Drafted and signed more than 150 years ago, the Emancipation Proclamation declared slaves held in Confederate states free, and made their liberty central to the Civil War’s goals. President Abraham Lincoln, who authored and signed the Proclamation in 1863, called it “an act of justice.”The 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1865 formally outlawed slavery and involuntary servitude in all states, ending a shameful period with which America has yet to fully reckon.Both of these historic treasures, along with a handwritten notecard from Frederick Douglass, the famed 19th-century abolitionist and orator, were on display at Harvard Business School’s (HBS) Baker Library late last week, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous HBS alumnus. The documents were on campus briefly as part of “Agents of Change,” the library’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the African-American Student Union at HBS and a related conference.The student union was formed by four African-American M.B.A. students, including the first woman to graduate from the two-year M.B.A. program, at the height of social and political turmoil in America. The organizers pushed administrators for a number of changes to the Business School curriculum, climate, and culture, including a demand for more black faculty and expanded African-American student enrollment in the M.B.A. program; courses that focused on non-white business topics, such as black entrepreneurship; and greater financial assistance to black students.The library exhibit also highlights the important scholarship and thought leadership on race and business by HBS’ African-American faculty and alumni as “agents of change” since the early 20th century.last_img read more

Sod inspection

first_imgHomeowners may know to inspect potted plants for diseases, insects and other signs of an unhealthy plant before buying them. But University of Georgia Cooperative Extension specialists say sod should be inspected, too, before it’s rolled out and installed.When buying grass sod, inspect it carefully. The sod should be strong, uniform, free of pests and have a dense covering of grass blades. It should neither be dried out nor waterlogged.Buying sod certified by the Georgia Crop Improvement Association guarantees the sod is free of noxious weeds.Make sure the sod has not been sitting on pallets for more than a couple of days. The longer the sod remains on pallets, the larger the chance it suffers from lack of water and heat stress. This can diminish its overall quality and ability to take root into the soil once installed. If you are planning to install any new turfgrass this year, UGA Extension specialists say wait until late April or early May. Late spring conditions are more suitable for establishing warm-season grasses.Warm-season grasses grow best during the warm months when temperatures reach 80-95 degrees in the spring, summer and early fall. They grow vigorously during this time and become brown and dormant in the winter. They also have poor shade tolerance.These grasses include bermudagrass, St. Augustinegrass, centipedegrass, zoysiagrass and seashore paspalum.For more advice on UGA turfgrass varieties, visit www.georgiaturf.com. Or, call your local UGA Extension agent at 1-800-ASK-UGA1.last_img read more

No One Cares That You Tele

first_imgFlying low: Once under the radar, telemark skiing is beginning to hold an edge in the blue ridge.The Quiet Revival of Telemark Skiing Drop knees, not bombs….Free your heel, free your mind…Trust me, I tele.These axioms, and more not suitable for print, adorn bumpers, roof racks, and Nalgene bottles across the ski landscape. They represent the modern attitude toward an art almost as old as sliding on snow: the telemark ski turn. To watch a master of the technique as they genuflect gracefully down a slope is like watching the birth of modern skiing; like watching evolution in action. The telemark ski method ushered in a new era, bridging the gap between utilitarian cross country and recreational downhill skis.It all started with one man: a Norwegian named Sondre Norheim. In 1868, Norheim laid down the first telemark turns in a ski competition in what is now Oslo, the general public’s first introduction to the new technique of using the free heel of cross country bindings to bend and pull the uphill ski beneath the body while extending and bending the downhill leg forward to execute a turn.Norheim’s technique, however, was soon passed over for the easier fixed-heel parallel turn and almost died out forever. The cultural changes to the American landscape in the late 1960s and 1970s led to a telemark revival, when ski bums in Crested Butte and Vermont rebelled against the crowded, groomed resorts in favor of exploring the backcountry on cross country skis and bringing back the telemark turn. The 1990s brought plastic boots to replace leather, fat skis to replace skinny, and modern telemark took off in the U.S.Telemarking is certainly still an alternative way to ski, especially in the Southern Appalachians where it is still relatively unknown outside of bubbles like Canaan Valley. In the mountains out West, telemark skiers have a reputation akin to dirtbag climbers. Part of this is economical—telemark gear can get you deep into the backcountry and also perform at the resort—but a larger part is cultural. Much like fly fishing or the singlespeed mountain bike, telemark is not the easiest or fastest way, but it has an almost spiritual appeal to those who do it.This feeling is what hooked Boone, N.C. social studies teacher and part-time ski patroller Russ Hiatt on the sport. Having grown up skiing in Utah, he picked up telemark as a way to challenge himself on the comparatively tame slopes of the Southeast.“Certainly, there’s an attraction about it because it’s different,” Hiatt says. “It’s challenging in its own way. It’s not like alpine skiing is that easy, but this adds a whole new aspect to it and that attracts certain people. To me it’s a lot like surfing; I think it’s just a lot more soulful. It’s not about getting to the bottom of the hill the fastest; it’s how you get to the bottom of the hill.”Since the technique has so many moving parts, tele skiers are free to experiment with the depth of their stance, their transition, and their balanced body movements, putting a personal stamp on each turn. The free heel of the binding allows for easy touring without changing the setup, permitting telemarkers the freedom to roam the hills for fresh tracks anytime. The very act of the turn, with its emphasis on fluid motion and connectivity, reminds one of other spiritual movements like tai chi— hence all the “free your mind” and “let go, just feel it” talk that purveys many tele conversations. This individuality, along with the funny boots, give telemarkers a camaraderie that may be missing from the alpine and snowboard sects.“Because it’s different and has a smaller following, it really is much more about community,” says Hiatt. “It’s kind of like this instant connection. When you see another free-heeler, you already have this instant thing that separates you from the crowd.”It was this exact instant connection that put Hiatt on the path to help create Tele-Fest at Beech Mountain in 2011. After a day on the mountain and a little bar-napkin planning with a few others, he created Tele-Fest, now in its third year. It has even added a mini film festival. The festival is a fun way to get together and drop knee, but it also serves a larger purpose: access.Gatherings like Tele-Fest allow the exchange of ideas and knowledge, but also the exchange of gear. As the sport gains popularity in the South from its grassroots beginnings, Hiatt hopes resorts and retailers will begin to recognize telemark as something worthy of their resources.“Yes, we’re a niche group, but a niche group that hopefully will be worth a resort’s investment in a rental fleet,” he said. “That’s still our goal, and we’re working towards it.” •The Tele TurnThe basic telemark turn is made by doing the exact opposite that you have learned throughout your skiing career. In the parallel turn, your uphill ski is generally supposed to be in front of your downhill ski. This is not true for the telemark turn. If you want to turn to the right, you pull your right ski, uphill ski, back underneath your body, flexing at the forefoot and the knee. At the same time, your downhill ski, left ski, extends forward, flexing at the hip and knee. This is a similar motion to doing your simple lunge during that exercise class you hate. Oh, you don’t do lunges? Then you probably won’t get very far on telemark skis. The technique is virtually one lunge after another, except at speed, on snow.

Alure Home Improvements Hosts 4th Annual Summer Remodeling Fashion Show

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Sponsored Content Brought To You By Alure Home ImprovementsEverybody knows that Alure Home Improvements “goes to extremes to build your dreams,” but next month they’re going back in time to take you on a journey. The occasion is their fourth annual summer remodeling fashion show on August 6th and 7th, where they’ll be showcasing decades of home design work and highlighting the latest trends in products and styles. Enjoy live cooking and wine seminars, free food from Felico’s Catering, complimentary beverages, an arts & crafts tent for kids, a bounce house, and much more, including presentations, prizes and workshops.To add to all the fun, designers will be on hand wearing period costumes as they demonstrate looks from the turn of the 20th century, the 1920s, the 1930s, the 1940s, the 1960s and beyond. Alure Home Improvements promises an inspiring weekend for all who attend, whether they’re contemplating a major home project or just want to learn what’s hot and what’s not, and understand how our home interiors got the appearance they have today.“Everything you could possibly imagine we try to cover in terms of style and practicality,” says Gina Bonura, Alure Home Improvements’ custom kitchen and bathroom manager. “There will be designers on staff here the whole weekend. We welcome people to talk with us, and we’ll be happy to discuss their projects with them with the time we have.”Interested guests can sign up in advance for free 15-minute imaging sessions to talk about a range of home-remodeling topics.“We’ll have people there demonstrating the products we offer in roofing, windows and siding,” says Michael Gervasi, director of sales, exterior division.Gervasi says that Alure Home Improvements participates in the Owens Corning Roofing Platinum Preferred warranty system, which “is probably the best on the market.”They’ll also be touting the merits of Marvin Infinity Replacement Windows with Ultrex Fiberglass that are “eight times stronger than vinyl,” Gervasi adds.Alure Home Improvements’ Summer Remodeling Fashion Show returns August 6 & August 7 with all the latest home remodeling trends and designs, along with free admission, free seminars, free BBQ, and plenty of fun and activities for the whole family!The Oasis 2600 Sunroom from Ohio-based Joyce Manufacturing will also be on display—an all-season, insulated, high-performance sunroom with a clean, finished look without any visible screws or fasteners, and electrical raceways that conceal the wires and cables.“It’s one of the better products on the market,” Gervasi says.Another new material in home remodeling is Celect Cellular Composite Siding by Royal, which boasts wood-grain aesthetics, low maintenance, long durability, and structural integrity. Made with PVC, it has the appearance of fiber cement board but it doesn’t have the headaches, because it doesn’t absorb water or crack. Nor are there nail head holes, because it’s seamless. Celect is quick and relatively easy to install. The factory-applied finish comes with a 25-year warranty.“This is good stuff,” says Gervasi.Learn More About Alure Home ImprovementsWhile materials have evolved, some modern designs still evoke their roots, according to Bonura.“For instance, in the 1940s they had those big cast-iron farm sinks, and those are very popular today,” she says. “We’re going to show what they looked like in a 1940s kitchen and how those influences are being felt today.” The current versions aren’t made from cast-iron; they’re stainless steel or copper, but they have the same functionality of the large farm sink.Back in the early 1900s, it was still the era of the coal stove. The latest advance in cooking features the induction range, which uses magnetism to deliver the heat.“The nice thing about induction is that because it’s magnetized, there’s no flame or heat source,” says Bonura. “If a child touches the stove top, it’s not hot.”Another new technology gaining in popularity is the built-in convection steam oven.“There’s no microwave, no radiation,” she says. “It’s all steam. It actually replaces the moisture in the food and makes such a difference in reheating a bagel, or last night’s takeout.” But, she concedes, “You still need the microwave to pop the popcorn!”If you want to see what your home will look like with Alure’s 15-minute interior or exterior design-imaging session, you should email Alure a photo of the front of your house, the kitchen, or the bathroom in your current home. To RSVP, email [email protected] or call 888-772-5873.Alure Home Improvements’ 4th Annual Summer Remodeling Fashion Show runs Saturday, Aug. 6, and Sunday, Aug. 7, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Alure’s Showroom, 1999 Hempstead Turnpike, East Meadow, NY 11554.last_img read more

Restriction relaxation leads to increase in Depok household clusters

first_imgDepok city in West Java has seen an increase in COVID-19 household clusters as the city continues to ease restrictions, Depok Health Agency head Novarita said.”We’ve started to see patterns, three or four people testing positive for COVID-19 [in a certain area] and it turns out they are a family living in one household,” Novarita said on Wednesday as reported by kompas.com.Novarita said the agency had coordinated with the Jakarta administration, as 60 percent of Depok residents commuted daily to Jakarta, the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in the country, for work.”Jakarta has been conducting massive COVID-19 testing, much larger compared to other cities. A lot of times, we manage to find a household cluster after a Depok resident tests positive in Jakarta. We track their close contacts and find their family members have been infected as well,” she said.Novarita said the agency relied on people’s awareness to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Depok as the city administration could not “prevent people from working”.She also urged commuters to take a shower upon arriving home.Read also: ‘Don’t rush into new normal’, Jokowi tells local leaders amid rising COVID-19 cases”After arriving home from work, you should immediately change your clothes and take a shower. Don’t sit around and chit chat with your family right away,” she said.As of Wednesday, Depok had recorded 1,488 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the highest in West Java.Pandu Riono, an epidemiologist from the University of Indonesia (UI) in Depok, said the government needed to integrate COVID-19 mitigation in Greater Jakarta.”The mobility of residents in Greater Jakarta is very high, even though Jakarta and its satellite cities have different administrations and provinces, they should be considered one region to curb the spread of COVID-19,” Pandu said on Tuesday.If Jakarta’s satellite cities carried out active case findings and massive testing like the capital city, Pandu said there might be a spike in COVID-19 cases in those areas.

Goodluck:’Boko Haram being trained by ISIS’

first_imgPresident Goodluck JonathanNigeria’s president Goodluck Jonathan says Boko Haram militants have been receiving training from ISIS.However president Jonathan did not mention the countries where the militants have been training. He told VOA that for a long time he has been suspecting the group for having alliances with international extremist groups.He further stated that:’We know the links are there. But even now, we may not know the degree of linkages as to how much funds are coming in from them, the kind of volume of weapons coming in from them, the nationalities coming from them.’Nigeria has been battling the Islamic militants whose main base in North East since 2009. The group has been indiscriminately killing citizens regardless of their faith and it has also displaced thousands of people with most being left homeless.The groups tactics involve suicide bombings, take people hostage and torching villages of people suspected not to support the fighters.  Last yar Boko Haram took hostage 200 hundred school girls who have yet to be rescued by the government.President Jonathan is running for re-election on March 28 in what is expected to be the most competitive vote since Nigeria returned to democracy in 1999. Election officials postponed the vote from its original date in mid-February because the military said it couldn’t provide enough troops to guard the polls.Since then, Nigerian soldiers along with troops from neighboring Chad, Cameroon and Niger have pushed Boko Haram out of many towns and villages they occupied in the country’s northeast.last_img read more
