$10 million gift to Divinity School

first_imgHarvard University announced Wednesday that Susan Shallcross Swartz, an artist and social and environmental activist, and her husband, James R. Swartz ’64, have donated $10 million to Harvard Divinity School (HDS). The gift will establish the Susan Shallcross Swartz Endowment for Christian Studies, which will fund new professorships and support fellowships and programming in the classroom and in the field.Harvard President Drew Faust praised the Swartzes for supporting not only HDS but also the broader University community. “The Divinity School plays a key role in the work and mission of the wider University,” said Faust, “and Susan and Jim’s gift — one of the largest in HDS’s nearly 200-year history — helps solidify the study of religion’s place at Harvard. We are most grateful.”Swartz, an American landscape painter whose work explores the intersection of spirituality and art, became involved with HDS in 2005, when she was invited to become the School’s artist-in-residence. Her involvement has continued over the years through service on the HDS Dean’s Council, thanks in large part to the Swartzes’ relationship with former Dean William A. Graham, whose legacy the gift also honors.“From the beginning of my association with HDS, I was impressed with the leadership of Bill Graham and with the Dean’s Council’s commitment to keeping the oldest divinity school in the country a vibrant place of scholarship and reflection,” Swartz said. “This gift will allow Dean [David N.] Hempton to take the School into the future, and to improve the currency of the leadership that HDS exercises. My hope is that the endowment will inspire scholarship and reinvigorate debate, service, and teaching for generations to come.”“Without question, Susan and Jim’s extraordinary gift will advance teaching and research in Christianity, one of our core strengths, well into the future,” said Hempton, who is also HDS’s Alonzo L. McDonald Family Professor of Evangelical Theological Studies and John Lord O’Brian Professor of Divinity. “The Swartz Endowment will expand our ability to assemble the leading scholars and thinkers in the field — and to draw the talented students that they attract. We are deeply grateful to Susan and Jim for their generosity and for their continued faith in our mission.”Founded in 1816, HDS was the first nonsectarian theological school in the country and the second professional school established at Harvard. (Harvard Medical School was founded in 1788.) The School has a distinguished history of fostering scholarship and critical thinking, as well as supporting service and ministry. HDS faculty are among the world’s leading scholars in Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist belief and practice.HDS offers four degree programs that educate students who assume leadership roles in ministry, education, journalism, government, public service, and many other fields. The HDS campus welcomes students from 30 denominations, who reflect a broad spectrum of academic interests and backgrounds.Trained in watercolors and oils, Swartz now works primarily in acrylics. Her “profoundly abstract landscapes and nature scenes” are in private and corporate collections around the world, as well as in several permanent museum collections. She has received numerous honors and awards during a career spanning more than 40 years.In addition to serving on the Dean’s Council, Swartz is on the boards of the Utah Film Center and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and on the National Advisory Board of the National Museum of Women in the Arts. She cofounded the Christian Center of Park City and is a founding member of Impact Partners, a documentary film organization.Swartz has worked closely with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Louie Psihoyos, and Jane Goodall on a number of environmental initiatives, and she has supported film projects — including the Sundance Film Festival and Academy Award-winning films — focused on social and environmental injustice.The Swartz gift will support HDS and Harvard’s long-term mission as planning continues for an eventual University-wide capital campaign. Harvard expects a late 2013 launch.For more information about Swartz and HDS, please visit www.susanswartz.com and www.hds.harvard.edu/.last_img read more

Dodgers activate OF Scott Van Slyke, put RP Chris Hatcher on DL

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Van Slyke adds a capable bat to a Dodgers lineup that produced eight runs combined in the four games prior to Wednesday.The left fielder was batting .264 with two home runs and 14 RBIs when he was injured May 30. In three rehab appearances with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, Van Slyke went 4 for 11. In his final rehab game on Monday, he was 2 for 4 with a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored. Van Slyke was one of four Dodgers rehabbing in that game along with Rodriguez, Peralta and League.No DL for NicasioThe Dodgers can take solace in avoiding the loss of another reliever to the DL. Mattingly said the Dodgers bullpen was short-handed on Tuesday night, but reliever Juan Nicasio said that didn’t include him. The right-hander professed his availability despite tearing half of the fingernail off the middle finger of his throwing hand in a 6-3 loss at Colorado on June 2.Nicasio further assured himself of his readiness during a 20-pitch bullpen prior to Wednesday’s game, during which he threw all his pitches, including the off-speed pitches he wasn’t able to throw following the injury.“I’m feeling comfortable with my breaking ball, 100 percent now,” Nicasio said. “I threw about 20 pitches (Wednesday) just to get the feeling for my breaking ball and it feels good, ready to go.” “I didn’t feel it on any one pitch,” Hatcher said. “The oblique is one of those things where, if it doesn’t get rest, it’s probably going to get worse.”The strain was mild enough that Hatcher wanted to pitch on Tuesday after Dodgers manager Don Mattingly was told of the injury on Monday in Texas.“At that point they were kind of hoping it would subside,” Mattingly said. “(Tuesday) just kind of asking him how he felt and seeing his face, it didn’t look real good. So I kind of had a feeling (Wednesday) wasn’t going to be a very good result.”Due to the unpredictability of oblique injuries, Mattingly said he was unsure of when Hatcher would begin throwing again.“Any of that would be a guess,” he said. “We thought Carl (Crawford) was going to be 21 to 30 (days) and now we’re heading toward 60.”center_img [email protected] @Clay_Fowler on TwitterLOS ANGELES >> A strained left oblique landed Chris Hatcher in the parade of Dodgers relievers on the disabled list Wednesday along with Joel Peralta, Brandon League, Pedro Baez and Paco Rodriguez, who are all currently on rehabilitation assignments in the minor leagues.The good news for the Dodgers is that outfielder Scott Van Slyke returned Wednesday from back inflammation that shelved him 18 games. He’ll replace Hatcher on the roster and immediately earn a spot in the lineup.Hatcher could benefit from a breather, considering his 1-4 record and 6.38 ERA in 27 appearances this season. The 30-year-old suffered a mild oblique strain during the two-thirds of an inning he pitched in Sunday’s 12-inning win over the Padres.last_img read more

Why DenG, Ericgeso, Christoph and Soul Fresh Are Not Making Hits Anymore

first_imgA little while back, DenG, Ericgeso, Christoph and Soul Fresh, just to name a few artistes, were headliners rocking whole towns and cities with their music.As their songs rocked Liberia day and night, their fan bases accordingly extended outside of Monrovia.This extension played a critical role in their rise to local superstardom, which can also be attributed to their conscious lyrics and their abilities to tap into their fans’ musical tastes and desires.From DenG’s ‘Kemah,’ to Ericgeso’s ‘Go Home,’ Christoph ‘Hold Your Polaruh,’ to Soul Fresh’s ‘Drop It and Wrap It,’ these artists rocked the nation like wildfire, making them ‘the people’s choice.’However, in recent times, these guys seem to be slipping, despite releasing quality singles that can’t seem to go pass a month after their release dates to just fizzle.Take DenG, for example. From ‘Make Dem Talk’ to ‘Some Done Some Na Done,’ it now appears that the top notch artist has lost his lyrical prowess. The two singles’ ‘hot lifespan’ didn’t go past a month after their release dates, maybe owing to the fact that they have a similar message to his first hit single ‘They Vex,’ without being as catchy.Both songs fell short of tapping into his fans’ expectations, and the lyrics appear to lack that power that could speak directly to the soul.For Ericgeso, who came to into the limelight about two years ago through the club banger ‘No Spacing,’ he is now struggling to maintain his momentum. Once regarded for his lyrical deftness, he fell short of such an appraisal in the singles ‘Resurrect’ and ‘Fall Down and Die,’   which messages were out of touch.In addition, his lyrics are neither on point nor touching.Now, Christoph, arguably the best rapper right now, is struggling to hold on to his spot despite releasing about four singles in sequence this year, which has not gone too far. The songs appear now to just be dying down.From ‘Marry Me,’ ‘Handbag,’ ‘Hipco 101,’ and ‘Hipco 102’ the lyrics appear to be disjointed, with similar rhyme patterns and wordings, and the messages just off track.Lastly, the group Soul Fresh, onetime best rap group in the country, is not doing well these days. This is evidenced by the group’s two singles ‘Red Bank’ and ‘Sweet, Sweet, Bad, Bad Dance,’ which lyrics are replicas of ‘Red Bank,’ with a similar message to ‘Drop it and Wrap It.’Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement – DenG, Ericgeso, Shinning Man and JB of the group Soul Fresh and Christophlast_img read more

Dan Uetrecht, Nov. 26

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We finished up last Thursday, Nov. 8 with the double-crops. Even an old timer told me that there are more beans still out after Thanksgiving than he can ever remember. It has been frustrating for a good year to be such a struggle at the end. I saw a couple guys running on Thanksgiving Day. There has been progress around here, but I feel for some of these guys.The weather has been some of the worst for late fall I can ever remember. There are probably more beans out down here than corn. The little corn that is still out is because it is down. Especially with the quality issues, guys are really pushing to get after it, but there just haven’t been good days to run. Even with a freeze, the beans are going to be so wet and they will still have to figure out a way to dry them.We have had a little ponding in the wheat but the water has gotten away. The wheat is still looking really good and I think it is going into winter really healthy.With the stuff we got off early, we were right behind the combine planting cover crops. We have some rye and crimson clover growing. In some of the later stuff we got off, we were never able to get those cover crops planted, so we still have some seed in the mini bulk bags to use after the wheat crop comes off next year.I am moving some grain out. I set the basis on a contract for some corn and we are going to move some the second half of December. I am concerned with quality issues and I want to get these bins cored. I want to be proactive in moving some grain.last_img read more

first_imgAC Milan coach Gattuso concedes Higuain now closer to Chelseaby Carlos Volcano9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAC Milan coach Rino Gattuso has hinted Gonzalo Higuain is leaving for Chelsea this week.Gattuso was speaking after the Coppa Italia win over Sampdoria.He said, “We have a very honest relationship, we say things to people’s faces. There is great honesty. When a player makes certain choices, it becomes difficult to convince him otherwise. One can try.“At this moment, he is a Milan player and we’re holding on tight. I don’t know what will happen. We are honest with each other and I want him to maintain this attitude, which has never been lacking thus far.”Gattuso continued: “I’ve talked to him a great deal, but it’s hard to give advice, because the career of a player only lasts 13-14 years. It’s his mind, not mine. The most important thing is to talk as men, look each other in the eyes and speak the truth.“I haven’t figured out what Higuain is unhappy with, because I see him look content and involved in the locker room atmosphere. We’ll see what happens. If it was up to me, I’d keep him at my house and feed him my dinner.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
