Hillary Clinton receives Radcliffe Medal

first_imgFormer U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday received the Radcliffe Medal, which annually honors a recipient whose life and work have had a “transformative impact on society.”Addressing the annual May gathering at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, departing Dean Lizabeth Cohen presented Clinton with the medal as hundreds of Radcliffe alumnae and Harvard luminaries looked on. Cohen cited Clinton’s extensive career as a lawyer and champion for the rights of women and children, as first lady, as U.S. senator from New York, as secretary of state, and as the Democratic nominee for president in 2016. Clinton was the first woman nominated by a major party for that office.“She has lived a life of public service. She uses her fierce intellect and determination to create meaningful social and political change. She displays the courage demanded of those who go first,” Cohen told the audience at the Radcliffe Day luncheon, reading the medal’s citation. Previous medalists include U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and former U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole.Hillary Clinton has a wide-ranging conversation with Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey ’92. Stephanie Mitchell/Harvard Staff PhotographerPrior to receiving her award, Clinton sat down with Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey ’92 for a wide-ranging conversation about her life, work, and thoughts on the state of the nation.Assessing the current situation with North Korea, Clinton said she was hopeful that American officials can regroup after plans for talks between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un fell through this week. But she cautioned U.S. leaders to enter into future talks with their “eyes wide open,” ready to “push as hard as possible.”She recalled that when you’re in the White House situation room, trying to come to an agreement on a difficult decision, you need to have “as much information — dare I say facts and evidence — as you possibly could, in order to advise and then make the best decisions.”But even with all the best information, “There’s no guarantee that the decision you make will be the right one,” she said, recalling her part in advising President Barack Obama about whether to target the suspected Pakistan hideout of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden in 2011.“It was by no means a 100-to-nothing decision. And it certainly wasn’t a decision that could be made by the gut of the president,” she said. Instead it was a decision that was made after advisers carefully considered the evidence, assessed the risks, and offered informed opinions. “Of course, the president has to make the decision,” Clinton said. “There is no way that I can imagine important life-or-death decisions being made without that kind of thoughtfulness, and the State Department has a deep reservoir of people with experience.“I am hoping that people who are currently in the government, not political appointees, will stay as long as they can, fighting for facts and evidence and our values,” she said, “and I hope that people, if they are so motivated, will still go into our government.”Clinton said she has been inspired by the many women, some of them political newcomers, who have been running for office in recent months, a development that she is supporting through her new political action organization, called Onward Together. She said she also finds the rise of young advocates for common-sense gun-safety laws “thrilling.”,Discussing her early years, Clinton recalled that her mother, who had worked to support herself during high school, was an inspiration “who guided me and picked me back up when I was knocked down.” She urged her listeners to think about how to “develop empathy and kindness in our children, for themselves and for others.” She also urged her listeners to speak up and speak out, encouraging them to defend the importance of a free press and higher education, to vote in “every election, not just for the national election,” and to “find an issue that you really care about and go deep and go long.”“We are living through a time when fundamental rights, civic virtue, freedom of the press, even facts and reason, are under assault like never before, but we are also witnessing an era of new moral conviction, civic engagement, a sense of devotion to our democracy and our country,” she added in closing remarks.During the afternoon session, Madeleine Albright, who from 1997‒2001 was the first woman to serve as secretary of state and was also the 2001 Radcliffe Medalist, praised Clinton for her dedication and devotion to the country. “She takes seriously the words that symbolize what this country’s all about,” Albright said, “that all men and women are created equal, and that our shared purpose should be about liberty and justice for everyone regardless of race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, or whether someone arrived in this land as an immigrant or refugee.”Radcliffe Day was also something of a prelude to farewell for Cohen, who is stepping down as dean on June 30 after leading Radcliffe since 2011. During her tenure, Cohen helped re-envision the institute’s academic mission, bringing experts from myriad disciplines to engage with the Harvard community. She also oversaw a range of physical improvements to the campus, helped integrate the arts further into programming and campus life, and led the Radcliffe Campaign, the institute’s branch of Harvard’s capital campaign, which raised $87 million.last_img read more

While the left-handed Stokes faced 97 balls in just over two hours and struck seven fours, the right-handed Buttler punched six fours off 47 deliveries.However, Holder bought himself back and was rewarded in his second over with the prized wicket of Stokes, caught at the wicket trying to clip a full length delivery that swung.His dismissal opened the floodgates again for West Indies as Holder removed Buttler in his very next over with three runs added at 157 for seven, brilliantly caught one-handed by Dowrich diving low to his right.Holder, the top-ranked all-rounder in Tests, then completed his five-wicket haul in his next over when he gained an lbw decision against Barbados-born Jofra Archer (0) after taking recourse to DRS.For Holder, it was his sixth five-wicket haul in his last 10 Tests, further enhancing his status as one of Test cricket’s elite bowlers.His sixth wicket arrived when Shai Hope pouched Mark Wood (5) at gully and Gabriel ended the innings by bowling Anderson for 10.last_img read more

Looking back at the Carrier Dome’s creation, nearly 40 years later

first_img Published on March 27, 2017 at 10:42 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 Whenever they could, Syracuse football coaches avoided showing recruits SU’s outdated home field. Built in 1907, Archbold Stadium constantly needed repairs before home games. For years, it crumbled. One day in the mid-1970s, Ronald Cavanagh walked a Syracuse football recruit into the Archbold Stadium locker room anyway. When a rat darted across a pipe, the recruit’s mother gasped. The athlete committed to Ohio State.“It was then that we knew we had to start thinking about a new structure, pronto,” said Cavanagh, a former SU professor and member of the SU Athletic Policy Board, which influenced the university’s decision to construct the Carrier Dome.Over the next few years, SU drew up the possibilities of building an open-air stadium on Skytop or in a lot off Bridge Street in East Syracuse, breaking ground at the New York State Fairgrounds or demolishing Archbold and constructing a dome in its place. For months, Syracuse University was at odds with the government and community members. After an unsuccessful attempt to build on Skytop, SU decided on the Carrier Dome, which hosted its first game in September 1980.Since then, about 18 million people have walked through its turnstiles. In the near future, the place SU calls home will undergo some of its most sweeping renovations, estimated to cost $205 million. Chief among them are a new roof and air conditioning system. With that in mind, here’s a look back nearly four decades in time at the creation of one of New York state’s signature landmarks.In crumblesAdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn November 1979, SU fans and workmen dismantled Archbold’s goalposts and removed the turf. By December, cranes and wrecking balls demolished the concrete stands. On Jan. 20, 1979, the last remnant of the Arch on Irving Avenue was torn down. “Vigorous Opposition”All of the approvals and permits from state and local governments were in place for a new, open-air structure to erect on Skytop field. But on the morning the construction workers pitched in their shovels, local residents laid down at the site in protest. The “unanticipated vigorous opposition,” mostly from residents, thought Colvin Street would turn into a major thoroughfare.“All of the work had been done,” former SU administrator Molly Broad said. “Yet the people did not want a stadium in their neighborhood.”Daily Orange File PhotoThen-SU Chancellor Melvin Eggers granted the locals’ wishes by canceling the plans to build at Skytop. He didn’t want to displease them, Broad said, so the university went with option two: Build on the site of what was known as “Old Archbold.”Making the dealThe university, in conjunction with Carrier Corp., New York state Senator and SU School of Law graduate Tarky Lombardi and the government, got a bargain on the deal, Broad said. The Carrier Dome cost under $27 million to build. As part of the deal, SU gave up its land in the Adirondacks. (Then-Carrier Corp. chief executive officer Mel Holm gave $2.75 million to the university in exchange for naming rights in perpetuity.)The foundationBy April 1979, the Carrier Dome site had been graded and leveled for the start of the Dome project. More than 100 men worked daily, a number that jumped to about 200 by project’s end. They erected pound-in-plate walls and pre-cast concrete box columns. By July 1979, 15 percent of the Carrier Dome was completed. The project, which created more than 250 jobs and $10 million in local expenditure, was completed on time in every stage. It was completed in the summer of 1980.Dome debutIn the Dome’s inaugural event, a Sept. 20 football game between SU and Miami of Ohio, temperatures hovered around 80 degrees. Bruce Laidlaw, class of 1995, had double-knit polyester slacks stuck to his legs“It was ironically incredibly hot and sticky,” Laidlaw recalled. “I couldn’t move. And it was absolutely packed to the gills.”Daily Orange File PhotoThe naming rights belong to Carrier Corp., a Connecticut-based air conditioning company. The irony of such a firm sponsoring a facility that does not have AC may baffle some, but AC was not installed during construction because builders considered Syracuse’s cold climate.Telling the head man Molly Broad had the “distinct pleasure” of telling SU head coach Jim Boeheim that the then-Orangemen would no longer play its home games in Manley Field House. Boeheim liked the tight-knit environment Manley provided and the home advantage it gave SU.“He was like a baby crying that he didn’t want to go to the Dome,” Broad remembered, laughing. “He went in anyway and had a smashing success.”The years sinceBy the 1990s, other large universities had built more modern facilities than the Carrier Dome. Nonetheless, the Dome has hosted thousands of SU athletic events — including Syracuse football’s upset of No. 1 Nebraska in 1984 and a slew of NCAA Tournament games — concerts and trade shows.
