In only two months as an intern in a lab at Harvard School of Public Health, Erika Espinosa believes she learned more than she could have in a semester of undergraduate courses. The Summer Program in Biological Sciences in Public Health (BPH), Espinosa said, “taught me the real definition of hard work” as she performed molecular biology research that could have implications for obesity treatment.The laboratory-based program provides the opportunity for undergraduates to design and carry out a research project examining a biological science question that is relevant to disease prevention, and culminates in a poster session, where Espinosa—a biomedical sciences student at the University of Texas at Brownsville—was among 10 students who presented their work on August 7, 2014 to an audience of HSPH faculty and graduate students.A range of opportunitiesEspinosa is one of hundreds who have spent their summers at the school while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in a range of disciplines. As public health is interdisciplinary, the students selected for these programs often come from a variety of backgrounds, from life sciences to math to sociology. In addition to BPH, organized by the Division of Biological Sciences, students can participate in the Summer Program in Biostatistics and Computational Biology, the Summer Program in Epidemiology, or Fostering Advancement & Careers through Enrichment Training in Sciences (a cross-departmental program known as FACETS).

“We felt it was necessary to act now in order to give the new manager as much time as possible to try and achieve that goal.” David Moyes is expected to be appointed the next West Ham manager, Sky Sports News understands, after Manuel Pellegrini was sacked following defeat to Leicester. The 66-year-old Chilean has been under increasing pressure during an awful run of form since a 4-0 defeat to Oxford United in the EFL Cup in September. Manuel Pellegrini has been sacked as West Ham United manager Following a promising start to the campaign, the Hammers embarked on a run of nine league defeats and just two wins in 13 matches, losing at home to Newcastle, rivals Tottenham and most recently the Foxes. They sit just a point above the relegation zone heading into the New Year and, after dismissing their manager just 18 months into a three-year deal, co-owner and chairman David Sullivan said: “It is with great disappointment that we’ve had to make this decision. “Manuel is a gentleman and it has been a real pleasure to work with someone of his calibre. However, it has become clear that a change is required to get the club back on track in line with our ambitions this season.Advertisement Read Also: West Ham axe manager Pellegrini after Leicester defeat Moyes saved the Hammers from relegation during the 2017-18 campaign before being replaced by Pellegrini after his short-term deal expired at the end of that season, and they are readying themselves to re-appoint the Scot, who has been out of work since. Moyes was recently linked with an interim role at another of his former clubs in Everton to replace Marco Silva, but they instead turned to Carlo Ancelotti. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading…

Coming off a two-game winless stretch against a pair of top-five opponents, Syracuse (8-1-1, 2-1-1 Atlantic Coast) heads to Albany to take on the Great Danes (4-3-2, 0-0-1 America East) Tuesday at 7 p.m. The Orange battled No. 4 North Carolina to a scoreless draw after 110 minutes on Friday and travels east with only one goal to show in its last two games.Here’s everything you need to know about the matchup.All-time series: Syracuse leads, 7-1-1Last time they played: Then-No. 22 Syracuse defeated Albany, 2-1, on Oct. 6 of last year. Chris Nanco capitalized on an Albany turnover in its own defensive third to put the Orange ahead in the 14th minute. The Great Danes equalized just before half when they converted on their only corner kick of the opening 45 minutes, using a Carlos Clark header to knot the score going into the break. Syracuse took the lead for good when Ben Polk scored one of his team-high 12 goals in the 78th minute, volleying home an assist from Julian Buescher.The Albany report: The Great Danes have two common opponents with Syracuse, Massachusetts and Boston College. SU beat UMass, 3-0, and Albany beat the Minutemen, 2-1. UA lost to Boston College, 5-3, while SU handed the Eagles a 2-0 defeat.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfonso Pinheiro leads the team with five goals, while six other players have found the back of the net this season. Pinheiro ranks tied for fifth in the America East in goals scored. Danny Vitiello is Albany’s primary goalkeeper, playing seven of the nine games this year. He has a goals-against average of 1.21, which ranks seventh among goalies in the conference.How Syracuse beats Albany: The Great Danes give up a lot of goals — 15 on the season to be exact. Syracuse has only allowed six in fewer games played and the Orange is tied for the most goals scored in the ACC. On paper, SU should have no problem putting at least two in the back of the net and securing a comfortable win. The key will be Nanco. At times this season he’s struggled to convert on his chances, and he had no goals to show for six shots against the Tar Heels on Friday.SU has one of the deepest offenses in the country’s best conference, but it’ll need one of its leading goal-scorers to start rounding into form if it wants to achieve the level of offensive prowess it’s capable of. Nanco will inevitably create chances for himself, either by getting under bigger defenders or just blowing by them. It’s the final touch, though, that hasn’t shown up and will need to do so if Syracuse is to win on Tuesday.Stats to know:1.67 – Albany ranks last in the America East with a 1.67 goals-against average1 – Friday’s tie against UNC was the first time all season Syracuse hasn’t scored11.4 – UA averages 11.4 shots per game, but SU is surrendering only 7.1 shots per gamePlayer to watch: Afonso Pinheiro, forward, No. 11Pinheiro was the conference’s forward of the year in 2015 and a first-team All-America East selection. He has an assist to go along with five goals in eight games played. Pinheiro is only a junior, and set Albany’s single-season records with 11 goals and 26 points last season. Both of those totals led the conference in 2015. Comments Published on October 3, 2016 at 11:21 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+

29 June 2011 The South African government has used a one-day consultative meeting with the country’s commercial farmers to allay their fears regarding “land grabs”. The consultative gathering between Rural Development and Land Reform Minister Gugile Nkwinti and farmers’ organisations TAU SA, AgriSA and the Agricultural Business Chamber took place in Pretoria on Tuesday. Speaking to reporters after the meeting, AgriSA deputy president Theo de Jager said: “From the farming community, there [are] always … fears that there might be Zimbabwean-style land grabs by the civil society. “We are glad that today we’ve come a long way to bridge the gap between commercial farmers and government on issues of insecurity, as we’ve been on the receiving end of most issues,” De Jager said. “We are grateful, and [it is] refreshing that from now onwards, we will be working together with government and other stakeholders on all issues affecting us.” TAU SA’s central Gauteng chairperson, Wannie Scribante, said: “It is true that some farmers are leaving the country because of the so-called land grab fears. “However, as the farmer’s organisation, we don’t want to jeopardise everything in the industry, which is economically viable. We don’t want to see the farming industry going down the drain.” Scribante said that, following the meeting, though there was still more to be done, they were looking forward to working with government and other stakeholders in finding reasonable solutions regarding land reform in the country. It was Nkwinti who announced that together with the farmers’ unions, they would be drafting legislation on an Office Valuer-General, Land Management Commission and Land Rights Management Board to support land reform. “We’ve all agreed to work together, but we will continue to engage each other,” Nkwinti said. “This is a tremendous achievement since we are now moving towards the same direction, and I want to reiterate that we will be representative with all the relevant stakeholders during these processes.” Nkwinti said the creation of the Valuer-General was long overdue, adding that it was very important institution, given that the current system used by valuers was unknown. The Land Management Commission, according to Nkwinti, would also help resolve the contradictions between surface rights and prospecting and/or mining rights. He said there had to be a provincial Land Rights Management Board in each of the nine provinces for efficiency and better decision-making, adding that the boards would consult with local government before undertaking any development project within any municipal space.

The home side still enjoyed plenty of possession but hardly created a clear cut chance early on. Herrera found the breakthrough off a corner from Manny Ott, but Istiklol also looked threatening with Roland Muller needing to produce some fine saves to keep the Busmen in the tie.

By Aditi Gupta & Pawan Kumar SinghNew Delhi, Jun 18 (PTI) Justice C S Karnan may have faced the ire of the Supreme Court with his defamatory remarks against the judiciary but there have been other judges in recent years who too courted controversy with their comments.Karnan, who recently retired, described the collegium system as “autocratic” having preference for “high caste candidates”, hurling a volley of invectives at the chief justices of the Madras High Court and shooting off letters with “scandalous” comments against judges to top authorities.He became the first sitting high court judge to be awarded jail term though he is yet to be arrested.Recently a Rajasthan High Court judge, Mahesh Chandra Sharma, on the day of his superannuation, stoked a controversy in a judgement with his remarks — “make cow a national animal” and “peacock remains celibate”.”Peacock is a life-long celibate. He does not indulge in sex with peahen. The peahen gives birth after it gets impregnated with the tears of the peacock. A peacock or a peahen is then born… Lord Krishna used peacocks feather for celibacy of the bird,” he had said.A storm, similar to the one triggered by Karnans comment, was also created in 2010 when a sitting judge of the Karnataka High Court, Justice D V Shylendra Kumar, had called the then Chief Justice of India K G Balakrishnan as a “serpent without fangs” when the judges of the higher judiciary were showing resistance to make public their assets.advertisementFinally, when judges declared their assets, a bombshell of sorts was dropped as the apex court website showed that the then sitting woman judge, Gyan Sudha Mishra, declared her unmarried daughters as “liability”.In another shocking remark, Karnataka High Court judge Bhaktavatsala in 2012 had told a woman petitioner seeking divorce from her physically abusive husband, that all women suffer in marriages.”Women suffer in all marriages. You are married with two children, and know what it means to suffer as a woman. Your husband is doing good business, he will take care of you. Why are you still talking about his beatings?” he had said.Interestingly, there are several other judges who were in spotlight with their controversial remarks.Justice Markandey Katju, who retired from the Supreme Court, had said “hang the corrupt to the lamp posts” and “Muslim students sporting beard would lead to Talibanisation of the country”.The rhetoric continued with the statement of Justice S N Srivastava of the Allahabad High Court, who said “make Bhagwad Gita a national scripture” as it is a “rashtriya dharma shastra”.However, a judgement which drew the attention of the foreign press for judges obnoxious remarks was by Justice P Devadass, who in July 2015, granted bail to a rape convict so that he could “mediate” with his victim and heal their rift but the public outcry made the judge to withdraw the order.There were judges like former Chief Justice of India R M Lodha whose comment in 2013 in the hearing of a coal scam case that CBI is like a “caged parrot speaking in its masters voice” had drawn a lot of debate on the functioning of the agency.In one of his infamous utterances, Katju said, “The only way to rid the country of corruption is to hang a few of you (corrupt) on the lamp post. The law does not permit us to do it but otherwise we would prefer to hang people like you at the lamp post.””Everywhere, we have corruption. Nothing is free from corruption. Everybody wants to loot this country. The only solution for this menace is to hang some people in the public so that it acts as a deterrent on others,” Katju had said.In another case while dealing with a plea of a Muslim student against the directive of a convent school, he said “Muslim students cannot insist on sporting beards as it would lead to Talibanisation of the country,” which he withdrew later as Muslim groups criticised him.However, after his retirement, his criticism of judges of the Supreme Court did not go down well and he was directed to appear in person to explain his conduct of making such comments in his blog.While he became the first former apex court judge to be summoned to the top court, he apologised and escaped any ordeal like Justice Karnan who has been awarded six months imprisonment for contempt.Though Katju had been courting controversies, he never left the opportunity to criticise others for their controversial remarks and one such occasion came when in August 2014 he took on the then sitting judge, A R Dave, for his remarks on Gita and the Mahabharata.advertisementAt a private function, Justice Dave went to the extent of saying that “Somebody who is very secular…so-called secular will not agree…Had I been the dictator of India, I would have introduced the Gita and the Mahabharata in class 1. That is the way you learn how to live life.”Justice J B Pardiwala of the Gujarat High Court had courted controversy for his remark in the judgement that “if I am asked by anyone to name two things which have destroyed the country, they are reservation and corruption.” PTI AG PKS RKS ZMN GVS
