‘Planet Earth’-Themed Raves Are A Big Hit In The UK

first_imgIf you’ve ever admired the beauty of Planet Earth or Blue Planet, then there’s a good chance you’ve dreamed about having your life narrated by Sir David Attenborough, the 91-year-old British naturalist who lends his exquisite voice to these acclaimed documentaries. And since you’re not a humpback whale or a bird of paradise, it’s safe to assume that this will never happen.Fortunately, some enterprising music fans in the UK have created the next best thing by combining stately narration and high-production value nature documentaries with another British pastime: the rave. Known as David Attenborough’s Jungle Boogie, the traveling event puts on “a tribute to our national treasure through the medium of Disco.”The all-night dance party recently sold out its first two editions in Leeds and Liverpool, and high demand has inspired the organizers to book at least ten follow-ups in places like Bristol, Cambridge, Oxford, and Manchester. At the events, attendees have an opportunity to take photos with a life-size cutout of Sir David Attenborough, dance to music that has been remixed with samples of Attenborough’s glorious narrations, and watch some of the BBC’s most cherished nature footage. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from the parties goes to World Land Trust, a rainforest conservation organization that has worked with Attenborough.“The concept of ‘Jungle Boogie’ is that we transform a venue into a rainforest, play Blue Planet visuals on a projector, and get local DJs to play House, Disco, Funk, and Soul,” organizer Louis Jadwat told The Independent.While Sir David Attenborough’s voice may be a distinctly British treat, his work is enjoyed by plenty of Americans as well. Much like the migrating sea creatures of Blue Planet and Blue Planet II, we hope this event eventually makes its way across the ocean.[H/T – MixMag]last_img read more

Harvard University Housing establishes new rents for 2015–16

first_img 472–474 Broadway (all utilities included): one bedrooms $1,916–$1,974. Holden Green (all utilities included): one bedrooms $1,712–$1,950; two bedrooms $2,086–$2,422; three bedrooms $2,604–$2,943. Harvard University Housing (HUH) manages approximately 3,000 apartments, offering a broad choice of locations, unit types, amenities, and sizes to meet the individual budgets and housing needs of eligible Harvard affiliates (full-time graduate students, faculty members, and employees). Harvard affiliates may apply for Harvard University Housing online at www.huhousing.harvard.edu (click on “Apply”). The website also provides information about additional housing options and useful Harvard and community resources for incoming and current affiliates.In accordance with the University’s rent policy, Harvard University Housing charges market rents. To establish the proposed rents for 2015–2016, Jayendu Patel of Economic, Financial, & Statistical Consulting Services performed and endorsed the results of a regression analysis on three years of market rents for more than 2,900 apartments. The data included in the analysis were obtained from a variety of sources, including rentals posted on the Harvard University Housing Off-Campus Listing website by private-market property owners, information supplied by a real estate appraisal firm or a local brokerage company, and various non-Harvard rental websites, in order to provide comparable private-rental-market listings for competing apartment complexes in Cambridge and Boston. The results of this market analysis and of other market research indicate that market rents for Harvard University Housing in 2015–2016 will increase 2 percent on average across the 3,000-unit portfolio relative to last year’s rents, although within the portfolio rents on some units have been adjusted up or down based on current market conditions. As always, all revenues generated by Harvard University Housing in excess of operating expenses and debt service are used to fund capital improvements and renewal of the facilities in HUH’s existing residential portfolio.The rents noted in this article have been reviewed and endorsed by the Faculty Advisory Committee on Harvard University Housing* and will take effect for the 2015-2016 leasing season.2015–2016 rents for continuing HUH tenantsCurrent Harvard University Housing tenants who choose to extend their leases for another year will receive, on average, a 2 percent rent increase, with actual increases ranging from zero to 4 percent. Heat, hot water, electricity, and gas, where applicable, are included in all Harvard University Housing apartment rents; Harvard Internet service and air conditioning are also included, where available.Harvard University Housing tenants will receive an email from HUH in March with instructions on how to submit a request to either extend or terminate their current lease. Tenants who would like additional information or help in determining their continuing rental rates for 2015–2016 may call the Harvard University Housing Leasing Office at 617.495.1459.2015–2016 rents for new HUH tenants The annual market analysis for the 2015–2016 rents resulted in a recommendation that average rents for incoming tenants across the portfolio increase 2 percent relative to the prior year. Because Harvard’s rent policy is applied on a unit-by-unit basis, market rental rates for some unit types and locations will increase, while others will experience no change or will decrease, based on current market conditions. 85–95 Prescott Street (all utilities included): studios $1,632–$1,798; one bedrooms $1,946–$2,186; two bedrooms $2,376.

This policy was established in 1983 by President Derek Bok based on recommendations from a study led by Professor Archibald Cox and the Committee on Affiliated Housing. The original faculty committee determined that market rate pricing was the fairest method of allocating apartments and that setting rents for Harvard University Housing below market rate would be a form of financial aid, which should be determined by each individual school, not via the rent setting process. Additionally, the cost of housing should be considered when financial aid is determined. 2 Holyoke Street (all utilities included): one bedrooms $1,942–$2,028.

LIGHTS donates to high schools

first_imgUsed science equipment has found new life in needy high schools thanks to the year-old Notre Dame Laboratory Instrumentation Giving Hope to Students (ND LIGHTS) initiative. The program has successfully donated 12 pieces of campus equipment valued at more than $275,000 to six schools participating in the Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) program, ND LIGHTS Director Dr. Michelle Viglietta Joyce said. “This program has evolved into a place for a second life for equipment,” she said. “We take care of all of the paperwork. All the professor has to do is say, ‘I have this machine and want it to be donated.’ All the schools have to do is pay for the transportation … It’s a win-win for everyone.” The program finds high schools in need across the country and prepares the donation, Joyce said. “Everyone is very supportive of this project,” she said. “I’m so appreciative of the department, the dean of the College of Science and the Office of Sustainability. They helped me turn this idea into a reality.” The origin of ND LIGHTS lies in West Virginia, Joyce said. Joyce’s father, a retired principal at a West Virginia high school, spent 40 years encouraging students to grow and explore with education, she said. Joyce, an assistant professional specialist in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, took these teachings to heart when she founded ND LIGHTS last year to give old scientific equipment from Notre Dame science labs to resource-limited schools across the United States. “I always watched him provide the best for his students, especially in the sciences,” she said. “It was my high school chemistry lab that got me interested in chemistry. That’s where you can get kids interested in making this into a career.” Joyce creates experiments for teachers to perform with their students at the recipient schools. “What sets this program apart is the fact that we develop these experiments,” she said. “VWR, the preferred campus supplier of lab supplies, has partnered with us to donate all of the accessories and chemicals. They’re donating cases and cases so whole classes can do the experiment.” Joyce said she used journal articles to develop the experiments during the program’s first year, which she then taught to ACE teachers over the summer to use in their curriculum this fall. Next year, she will look to local schools as possible recipients for program equipment. In the future, Joyce said she hopes more Notre Dame students can get involved with the project. One way they can do so is enrolling in a class this spring semester to assist with donations. The class, called “Instrumentation in Scientific Education,” will have two to three students working with the equipment to create experiments for high school classes. Beyond the instruments donated to needy high schools, four highly specialized machines were also donated to Saint Mary’s, Joyce said. The machines are already being used in Saint Mary’s science curriculum.

ND ranks fifth in study abroad participation

first_imgThe opportunity to spend a semester of college taking classes in a foreign country, visiting new places and forming strong relationships with other students to many seems too good to pass up, and Notre Dame students are taking advantage of study abroad opportunities at higher rates than ever before. According to the Open Doors report released by the Institute of International Education (IIE), Notre Dame ranks fifth nationwide in percentage of undergraduate students participating in study abroad programs among U.S. doctoral and research institutions. The story focused on the 2011 to 2012 academic year. The United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, France and China ranked as the top five destinations for American students, and the IIE reported a steady increase in students pursuing academic semesters in foreign countries over the past decade. According to the report, 65.9 percent of Notre Dame students participate in study abroad, a 6.2 percent increase from 2012. Last year, the University ranked ninth in the survey. The Notre Dame International website states that the mission of International Studies is “to enable international learning and research experiences that enhance the academic, intercultural and spiritual formation of our students; enrich their global and cultural awareness and help to develop engaged citizens in our increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.” Junior Kate Friedli said she chose to study abroad in the United Kingdom during the past summer for a variety of reasons. “I think more and more people are going abroad for two reasons,” she said. “First, it’s incredibly fun. Second, you have the opportunity to learn things you wouldn’t in a normal, domestic class.” Friedli said her favorite part of the experience was forming friendships with the other Notre Dame students in her program. “What I found most rewarding about studying abroad was the people,” Friedli said. “The people from Notre Dame who I went abroad to London with will be my lifelong friends, and my interactions with true Londoners were very rewarding and fun.” Junior Sara Reyes also said studying abroad offered an opportunity to branch out and meet Notre Dame students she has yet to interact with on campus. “Studying abroad is the perfect medium to get out of your comfort zone,” Reyes said. “It was a great experience for me because I met a lot of Notre Dame students that I may never have had the pleasure of being friends with had I not met them during my time abroad.” Junior Katharine Maheras said she valued the opportunity to experience new cultures with other Notre Dame students who share a similar background to hers. “I not only got to have a new cultural experience but also was able to strengthen friendships with Notre Dame students through doing so,” Maheras said. Junior Kevin McMannis said by offering study abroad programs over the summer, Notre Dame International allows even more students to take advantage of the opportunity to study in a foreign country. “The summer abroad let me experience new and different parts of my Notre Dame and college career without missing a semester on this amazing campus,” he said. “I got to branch out of my dorm, live with six guys I didn’t know before and meet other amazing people.” Living in a metropolitan city and absorbing the culture were highlights of the summer program, McMannis said. “London’s city life and culture was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had so far, and I am super blessed to have been able to spend it with my college friends, new and old,” he said.  Notre Dame boasts more than 40 international study programs in more than 20 nations, including Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Mexico, Russia, Senegal, South Korea, Singapore, Switzerland, Uganda and the U.K., along with a domestic program in Washington, D.C.

Saint Mary’s students reflect on Semester at Sea

first_imgSaint Mary’s seniors Madison Marshall and Clare Theisen, along with junior Maura Newell, made waves when they participated in the Semester at Sea program, which is not directly offered through Saint Mary’s, but which the students managed to incorporate into their experiences at the College.Semester at Sea is a 100-day program that allows students to experience the cultures of ten or more countries in only one semester of school. Students travel on a boat that is slightly smaller than a cruise ship to get from international destination to destination — the destinations change slightly each semester. Newell, who studied abroad last semester, said she attended classes with fellow students from around the world while on the boat. “We would have class every day we were at sea, so we didn’t really didn’t have weekends,” she said. “The longest we were sailing was 12 days when we went from Hawaii to Japan, and the shortest was two days when we went from Japan to China.”Newell said as long as students discuss their plans to study abroad with the Registrar Office, their classes can count toward Saint Mary’s credits. Classes cover a range of topics, such as economics, art history, world diplomacy, photography, literature, anthropology, oceanography and religion, she said.“When we’re on the ship, we study what country we’re going to,” she said. “So in my business economics class, we would talk about the economy of whichever country we were traveling to.”Students have the option to either pay extra to take classes once the boat docks in a country or to travel independently. However, even if the students opt to travel independently, they must attend at least one field lab while they’re visiting a country. Newell said her art history class met with an artist in Vietnam. Professors, like students, must also apply to teach for a semester on the ship. Marshall, a marketing major who studied abroad in the fall of 2015, said most of the professors were from the U.S., but some were from other countries. “All of the professors were from prestigious schools,” she said. “I had professors from Yale and Harvard, which is something I wouldn’t be able to experience anywhere else.”Newell said the community feeling on the ship was unique because of how close the students live to the faculty.“When you’re living in close quarters with everyone, you get to know everyone really well,”  Newell said. “You don’t just see your teachers in a professional setting. You see them all over the ship, even walking down the hall in their PJs.”The ship was equipped with a gym, pool, a theater where students could attend talks or performances and multiple dining halls. Marshall said the ship was similar to the one in the movie Titanic.“We were lucky that our boat was a new boat,” Marshall said. “It had a Titanic vibe. Everything was elegant and decorative and kind of old-fashioned.”The ship also had no phone service and no internet for the students. Theisen, who studied abroad with Marshall, said this aspect of the ship made the experience more authentic.“Because you couldn’t rely on your phone, you were forced to listen and learn.” Theisen said. “When we went abroad, it was around the time of the Paris attacks, so it was interesting to see people’s perspectives from around the world. I grew and learned so much from the people around me.”Marshall said she made some of her best friends on the ship. “The relationships I made with other students on the ship aren’t even comparable with any of my other relationships,” Marshall said. “You build this inseparable bond with the people you travel with, even though they start out to be complete strangers.”Newell was the only Saint Mary’s student on her voyage, but she said it was worth pushing herself outside of her comfort zone for the experience. One of the greatest experiences she had was on her trip to Myanmar, she said. “We took a hot air balloon and flew over a bunch of pagodas and temples at sunrise,” Newell said. “I went to a little town that most tourists don’t go to. We met a family while we were there, and we stayed with them over night. It was such a different experience.”Students are able to travel to places such as the United Kingdom, Italy, Croatia, Greece, Spain, Morocco, Senegal, Brazil, Panama, Costa Rica, Japan, Hawaii, Vietnam, Burma, India, Malaysia and Myanmar, Marshall said.Marshall said one of the highlights from her trip was riding on camels in the Sahara Desert and sleeping in hammocks on the Amazon River. “Semester at Sea offers you the option to explore so many different places,” Marshall said. “I would have never chosen to go to Senegal, but that was probably one of my favorite places to go to. Every country was so amazing.” Theisen said one of the biggest advantages of studying abroad on the ship was the personal growth it offered.“It was a huge learning experience,” Theisen said. “In some places, you were surrounded by poverty, and a lot of people chose not to get off the ship. “There were times when people would swarm you begging for money, and I had never experienced anything like that. Those situations can be uncomfortable, but that’s when you grow.”Marshall said she would recommend Semester at Sea to anyone. “It pushes you to go outside of your comfort zone by spending time on a boat with a bunch of strangers and traveling to different parts of the world I could have never imagined going to,” Marshall said. “It has definitely helped to shape me into the better person I am today.”Tags: center for women’s intercultural leadership, semester at sea, study abroadlast_img read more

Goodbye potholes, hello smoother roads in 2020

first_img“I mean you’ve driven the roads, you see what needs to be done. You see a lot of temporary repair out there. This is actually going to allow us to do a full renewal of this section, and a lot of other sections across the region,” said Scott Cook, the public information specialist for NYSDOT Region 9. More than $14 million of that funding is coming to the Southern Tier to help patch up cracks and potholes created by severe weather. The DOT says these repairs could not have come at a better time. The DOT says instead of just temporary measures to repair the roads, this funding will make it possible for complete renewal projects to take place. HARPURSVILLE (WBNG) — New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced this week more than $151 million in funding to fix roads as part of the PAVE-NY initiative. The only rule is projects have to be started and completed in 2020. The Department of Transportation says when water gets underneath the surface of the road, it expands and contracts due to the changing temperatures, leading to the nasty cracks and potholes so common in the area. Cook said work will begin as soon as the last freeze is over, most likely early spring, and will have to be completed by the time winter rolls around again.last_img read more
