first_img Message* (iStock/Illustration by Kevin Rebong for The Real Deal)New York’s road to economic recovery is going to be long, but city officials want to speed things up by making Covid-19 tests easier to access.The New York City Economic Development Corporation, which bolsters economic growth in the city, plans to work with researchers from Columbia University to produce a rapid Covid test that would be available to the city directly, the Wall Street Journal reported. The group plans to award $164,000 to Dr. David Ho, a researcher at the university, in an effort to fund studies of the rapid test.“The sooner that we can get testing innovation out there, the sooner we can reopen things and get people back to work at a broader scale,” NYCEDC head James Patchett told the publication.Read moreOffice landlords offer no-wait Covid tests to lure workers backOffice landlords offer no-wait Covid tests to lure workers backCuomo announces plan to get workers back to offices Email Address* This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowcenter_img Columbia researchers previously developed a test that was used to help reopen the school’s Morningside Heights campus. Ho, director of the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center at Columbia, told the newspaper that his team will seek emergency-use approval for its antigen test from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.The move comes as the city takes steps to open more businesses and facilities that have been closed due to the pandemic. Indoor dining returned in February, with restaurants now allowed to operate at 35 percent capacity; sporting events have also welcomed attendees, and more things like weddings and summer camps will be allowed in the coming months.But the city’s positive Covid-19 cases remain high, even though the numbers have been decreasing in recent weeks. And New York remains in the bottom 10 states as far as vaccinations go, according to the Journal.Separate from the EDC’s effort, real estate companies like RXR Realty and Related Companies have been taking matters into their own hands by establishing on-site rapid-testing facilities on their properties in an effort to get more workers back to offices.

first_imgOver a thousand people crowded into the Memorial Church Sunday (Nov. 11) for a special birthday. Seventy-five years earlier, almost to the minute, the Colonial-style structure was dedicated on Armistice Day 1932.“This is a festive and happy day for us,” said the Rev. Professor Peter J. Gomes, the Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church, who in 1982 had presided over the celebration of the church’s 50th anniversary. It was a time to acknowledge all of Harvard’s dead from 20th century wars, he said, and to celebrate the living as “a beloved community of memory and hope.”“The silent sound of prayer and the active sound of music are always here,” said Gomes of the building, with its high white pews, rich woods, and vaulted ceilings. “This is no mere war memorial.”Celebrations stretched over nearly four hours, beginning with a church service commemorating both the war dead and the benefactors to the high-columned structure.Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick ‘78, J.D. ’82, a member of the Memorial Church congregation, quoted “two philosophers.” Reinhold Niebuhr was one. The other was his grandmother, whose slum-bound rose garden on Chicago’s South Side has remained his inspiration.In the 1950s and 1960s, adults in his broken, impoverished neighborhood “treated [children] as if they had a stake in us,” said Patrick. “They understood how to tend their garden.”He praised Gomes for tending the “garden” that is the Memorial Church.The service featured the world premiere of “The Litany of Light,” an anthem commissioned for the anniversary celebration and composed by Carson P. Cooman ‘04, now an instructor in Harvard’s Department of Music. A line from the libretto, by Elizabeth Kirschner, summed up the day’s duality of somber remembrance and fundamental cheer: “Joy may wander but never leave.”The Harvard University Choir sang throughout the day, and a lush musical prelude featured the Riverside Brass Quintet.Afterwards, celebrants walked out through the Memorial Room — “the heart of the church,” said Gomes. A fresh green wreath had just been placed there by an honor guard of cadets from Harvard’s Reserve Officer Training Corps program.In the sharp chill of early afternoon, the crowd gathered on the wide granite steps of the South Porch. Led by a bagpiper, they formed a wending, slow procession from the church — “a motley crew in procession, meant to be noticed,” said Gomes.At the grassy Delta in front of the Science Center a large tent awaited, where about 500 guests ate salmon and drank champagne from fluted glasses. Gomes and Harvard President Drew Faust made remarks in celebration of the occasion, and former University Marshal Richard M. Hunt was chairman of the day.Behind the podium was a wall of enlarged photos showing famous visitors to the Memorial Church through the years, including Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela.History was at the core of the afternoon remarks.The Memorial Church was built with donations from alumni to commemorate those from the University family who had fallen during World War I. “Here at Harvard, the war cast a long shadow,” said Gomes.During the 1914-18 conflict, Harvard sent 11,319 to fight; 375 died in the Allied cause, including three faculty members. Three died fighting for the German side.By the fall of 1918, enrollment at Harvard College shrank to 20 percent of its usual size, and the campus itself was transformed into “an armed camp,” said Faust, who is also Lincoln Professor of History. Nearly all remaining undergraduates belonged to student army training camps.In those days, “the war had been deeply felt in the day-to-day experience of Harvard University,” said Faust. Building the Memorial Church was an attempt to cope with fresh memories, she said — part of a worldwide struggle to understand what was known as the Great War, which occasioned 70,000 memorials in England alone.“The Memorial Church stands in the tradition of trying to reinvent humanity in a world that had seemed to lose sight of it,” said Faust.The grand church was designed to counterbalance the scale and grandeur of Widener Library across the New Yard. But it was unique among memorials of that era, meant to be “a living institution,” said Faust, where the energetic civic and religious business of a university community could unfold. “What better way to honor the dead,” she remarked, “than to place them at the heart of the living?”As for the future, said Gomes from the tent’s low wooden stage, “we have a very specific adventure in store” — refurbishing projects that over the next two or three years will cost $6 million.Appleton Chapel will be opened up to restore it to the “bowl of light” it once was, he said.Both the chapel and the gallery will be fitted for two new Charles B. Fisk organs. And the pulpit will be relocated to underneath windows where it was before 1968.“Needless to say, dear friends, you will all hear more,” said Gomes to the gathering, in one of the day’s many lighthearted calls for more church benefactors. “This might well be the most expensive free lunch you ever had.”last_img read more

first_imgSaint Mary’s President Jan Cervelli spoke Monday about the importance and necessity of sustainability in the world today.Cervelli spoke on Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato si’ and said the Pope did a great job explaining the complexity of environmental issues.  “I think Francis hits on the head that many of the problems we see today around sustainability are not simple, they are multi-dimensional,” Cervelli said.Cervelli said the issue of environmental conservation is much more than just the environment and that it affects so many other aspects of our lives. “The first part about environmental, economic and social ecology is how they’re all interconnected. We can’t look at them separately,” Cervelli said.Cervelli said colleges like Saint Mary’s can take steps towards dealing with sustainability issues by thinking of academics as integrated learning spaces and looking at the issues as issues of social justice.  “I have some hopes and dreams for the college and for all of you, and to think about academic programs that take this approach solving problems,” Cervelli said. “It’s not just the environment, it’s dealing with the social justice dimensions as well that we’re so passionate about at Saint Mary’s.”Cervelli said that progress can only happen once people share information and communicate with each other, no matter the field. “Many of our problems today follow the fragmentation of knowledge and the isolation of bits of information [that] can actually become a form of ignorance,” Cervelli said. “So many of you are studying in very fine departments with very fine faculty; one of our goals is to work across departments, and be able to talk from science over to humanities.”Cervelli spoke about one of her personal heroes, landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. Olmsted designed Central Park in New York City and Cervelli said he put parks in cities because it made the cities more livable. “He had a strong belief, as does Pope Francis, in the healing power of nature. It’s the unconscious reflecting, it’s that ability to escape,” she said. “He believed it’s one of the more important responsibilities of the government to provide these spaces.”Cervelli said that Olmsted and Pope Francis are similar in their beliefs for the importance of the common good. “Francis talks a lot about human health and wellness and how it comes out of the environment, but what comes out of it are human interactions, with each other, socially,” Cervelli said. “Frederick Law Olmsted believed back in 1852 that nature has a direct impact on healing of humans.”Cervelli said Americans should be very proud that the first idea of a national park was born in the United States.  “That spawned the conservation movement,” Cervelli said. “And I’m afraid often times it’s not even taught in schools. The ideas of land conservation, and perpetuity for everyone and to protect our environment [and] essentially ourselves.”Tags: cervelli, conservation, president, sustainabilitylast_img read more
