The late-morning ceremony took place in Tercentenary Theatre as hundreds looked on.Honored were Army 2nd Lts. Victoria Migdal of Pleasantville, N.Y., a neurobiology concentrator who will enter the Medical Corps after medical school at Vanderbilt University, and Nicole Unis of Lanesborough, Mass., a ALM degree candidate in finance assigned to the 6th Military Intelligence Battalion, 98th Regiment, at Fort Devens, Mass.; U.S. Navy Ensign Evan Roth of Canandaigua, N.Y., a government concentrator assigned to the USS Lassen based in Yokosuka, Japan; and U.S. Air Force 2nd Lt. Isaiah Peterson, a philosophy concentrator who will be commissioned into the Judge Advocate General’s Corps after law school at Georgetown University.Harvard’s relationship with the Reserve Officers’ Training Program (ROTC) dates to 1916.Before the ceremony, Roth waited with his family in front of the John Harvard Statue. Reflecting on his four-year climb to the end, a degree and a commission, he said, “We talk a lot about the ‘long crimson line.’ There’s a long legacy of service here.”Administering the oaths was Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. “You’re about to become part of a long and illustrious heritage,” he told the new officers, recounting service by Harvard graduates starting with the Revolution. “They have fought for America in every element there is, on the land, in the air, on, under, and above the sea.  And every time — every time — Harvard graduates have been there.”Mabus called the ceremony “a circle completed” in his own life. More than 40 years ago, as a fresh-minted Naval officer, he reported to his first ship in the Boston Naval Shipyard during the Vietnam War. “I am very proud that our country today may debate the purpose of a war,” he said, “but is united in support of the warriors who fight.Navy and Harvard ROTC veteran Bruce Johnstone ’62 welcomed the new officers to an experience of a lifetime. “You’re going to be their teacher, their mentor,” he said of people they will lead. “You’re going to be an inspiration.”Harvard President Drew Faust praised the new officers for “a choice that will continue to distinguish you among your classmates and among your fellow citizens.”President Drew Faust and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus applaud during the commissioning ceremony.

Curtis R. Stevens and Army Lt. Col. Timothy J. Hall, commanders of the ROTC units associated with Harvard. Stevens retires from the Navy at the end of this month and Hall will soon leave the Boston area for a new Army assignment in Germany. They have been “not just wonderful teachers and mentors for our students,” she said, “but wonderful colleagues — and diplomats — as we worked through the complexities to achieve what we celebrated with our two ribbon cuttings this past year.”A Naval ROTC office opened at Harvard’s Hilles Hall in September; an Army ROTC office opened there in March.“We have heard a great deal in the media this past year about the 1 percent — those at the pinnacle of the economic pyramid,” said Faust. “I want us to think for just a moment about a quite different 1 percent.  It actually is closer to one half of one 1 percent. This is the proportion of the American population that is enrolled in the military.”Faust reached into the past for a lesson. “The Founding Fathers cautioned that we as a nation must not permit the military to become separated from its society and its citizenry,” she said. “In the era of the All-Volunteer Force, we must be particularly attentive to this imperative.”last_img read more


first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Governor Wolf Buys Wegmans’ First Bottle of Wine to Go in Pennsylvania, Celebrates Additional Consumer Convenience Under Act 39 Liquor Reforms Liquor Reform,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Wolf joined Wegmans executives and others to toast sales of wine to go, which began this morning at the Mechanicsburg Wegmans located at 6416 Carlisle Pike.“As I have always said, my goal is to modernize the sale of liquor, wine, and beer in order to bring Pennsylvania’s wine and spirits system into the 21st Century,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “I applaud the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board and Wegmans for working together to enhance the customer experience by providing greater convenience and satisfaction to the people of central Pennsylvania.“From large grocery chains like Wegmans and Giant Eagle to sub shops like Super Sub & Six Pak in Dubois, and from specialty restaurants like Winedown Café in West Reading to bottle shops like Below Deck inside the Boat House in Conshohocken, additional access and convenience are popping up all across Pennsylvania, just within the last couple of weeks.”As of Wednesday afternoon, the PLCB had received 243 requests for wine expanded permits authorizing the sale of wine to go, and it had issued 120.The Mechanicsburg Wegmans is the first of 17 Pennsylvania Wegmans stores to begin selling wine to go, and it is anticipated all Wegmans locations in Pennsylvania will offer a robust selection of hundreds of wines at various prices this fall.  Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. is a 90-store supermarket chain with locations in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts.Wegmans and the PLCB initially met in early August so both organizations could begin to collaboratively plan and develop the processes for a system-wide roll out of wine to go at Wegmans stores across Pennsylvania. A limited pilot program – intended to test and refine processes for forecasting product needs, planning replenishment orders, and delivering wine from a PLCB distribution center directly to the store – was developed for the Mechanicsburg Wegmans location.On August 26, Wegmans submitted its first order through the PLCB’s Licensee Online Order Portal (LOOP), an Internet-based system that allows licensees to order wine and spirits at any time from home or office.  Wegmans received its wine expanded permit on Monday, August 29, then received its first wine delivery directly from a PLCB distribution center yesterday at the Mechanicsburg store.“This pilot program with Wegmans promises to be very successful, and as we continue discussions with a number of large chain retailers interested in selling wine to go, we will be encouraging development of similar, limited pilot programs to ensure successful broad-scale roll-outs,” said PLCB Chairman Tim Holden at today’s event.  “Wegmans’ introduction of wine-to-go sales is the culmination of great teamwork and collaboration, and the PLCB is ready and eager to achieve similar success with many more wine-to-go retailers across Pennsylvania.”Recognizing consumers’ interest in buying local and the significant impact that Pennsylvania wines and spirits have on Pennsylvania’s agriculture and tourism industries, Wegmans’ initial wine offerings include wines from Pennsylvania wineries Moon Dancer Winery, Cider House, and Tap Room in York County and Nissley Vineyards & Winery in Lancaster County.“Not only do these liquor reforms give our homegrown winemakers more retail outlets where they can sell their wines, but under Act 39, Pennsylvania wineries, distilleries, and breweries can also now sell each other’s products, said Governor Wolf.  “This will allow them to offer more variety to consumers, appeal to new customers, and grow their businesses and local economies.”Following a Champagne toast to wine-to-go sales at Wegmans, Governor Wolf perused the Mechanicsburg store’s wine and beer selections, purchasing the first bottle of wine sold there under its new wine-to-go license.“Today’s celebration is a testament to the tremendous potential of public-private partnerships, illustrating that government can in fact be professional, responsive, and helpful business partners to the private sector,” said Governor Wolf.  “The PLCB has achieved a great deal in a very short period of time, and they are to be commended for the fast thinking and thoughtful problem-solving that has enabled today’s celebration and the overall transformation of the beverage alcohol industry in Pennsylvania that will continue for months and years to come.”Additional liquor reforms introduced earlier this month include expanded Sunday hours and the sale of Pennsylvania Lottery tickets at Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores and dramatically expanded direct wine shipping options for Pennsylvania residents.In coming months, the PLCB will explore customer loyalty programs, pricing flexibility, a new special liquor order portal and the auction of expired restaurant licenses authorized by Act 39.center_img September 01, 2016last_img read more


first_img Published on February 23, 2020 at 3:20 pm Contact Arabdho: [email protected] | @aromajumder Brendan Curry ran horizontally across the top of the offensive zone late in the fourth quarter and let a long shot go. Unlike most of the afternoon, this shot stayed down and punched the top right corner of the Army cage. It provided an insurance goal as SU (3-0) extended its lead to 9-7, a score that would hold until the final buzzer against No. 9 Army (3-2) on Sunday afternoon. The Orange didn’t hold their first lead until the 5:46 mark in the fourth quarter, but with career-best performances from Drake Porter and Jamie Trimboli, SU avoided an upset and stayed undefeated.Here are three takeaways from the game.  Brick wallArmy’s Nickolas Edinger caught a pass in front of the net and turned to face SU goalie Drake Porter one-on-one. He faked high a couple of times before trying to squeeze it through Porter’s five-hole. But Porter got down with his stick to stop it like he had the entire game. The senior goalie made nine saves in the first quarter alone for Syracuse and finished with a career-high 18. Porter’s play in the first half limited Army to five goals on 17 shots. With Syracuse’s offense unable to get going until the start of the second half, Porter kept the Army lead manageable. The Black Knights had multiple chances one-on-one against Porter in front of the cage when Syracuse slid. He was only beat once in the first half in those situations, when Miles Silva shot high instead of faking. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter Jamie Trimboli’s first goal in the second half, Army came down and took a long shot on Porter. He saved it, and 39 seconds later, Trimboli was down at the other end putting the ball in the back of the net. The next Army possession, the sequence repeated — this time taking only 16 seconds for Trimboli to score. With Porter as their anchor, the Orange launched their comeback. Shooting woes continueNew offensive coordinator Pat March noted SU’s shooting percentage struggles through its first two games. The Orange came into Sunday ranked 26th nationally at 31.7%. That was well off other Atlantic Coast Conference teams like North Carolina and Notre Dame, which are both above 36%. In the first half against Army, the poor shooting continued, and SU scored just twice on 18 shots. Some of that resulted from where the Army defense forced shots from. Syracuse got too close to the goalie at times, and with the Orange coming from the side of the net Army goalie Wyatt Schupler easily closed the angle. But many shots went high and wide. Griffin Cook had one chance when he was open backside but took it behind-the-back and missed the cage entirely. Syracuse also didn’t get as many chances as it did against Colgate and Binghamton, averaging 60 shots across those two games. Army limited the Orange to 47 shots on Sunday afternoon.   Trimboli TrebleSyracuse badly needed a spark of offense to start the second half, and Trimboli delivered. Thirty seconds into the third quarter, Trimboli cut the Army lead to two goals when Brendan Curry found him in the middle of the offensive zone with a sliver of space. Then Curry tried a similar feed to Stephen Rehfuss but missed the pass. But Trimboli was shadowing the Rehfuss backdoor cut and caught the pass and shot low right past the Army goalie. To cap off a third-quarter hat trick in under five minutes, Trimboli had an unassisted effort where he dodged from the wing and shot in a similar location to beat the goalie. On an afternoon the rest of his teammates shot high and wide and struggled to find space against a suffocating Army defense, Trimboli ended with five goals on seven shots and led a Syracuse comeback to avoid an early season upset and earn its first top-ten win of the year.
