After the shocks come the memorials. When reports swept the Harvard campus Monday afternoon that two bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon had killed and wounded people at the finish line, a wave of sadness and concern swept the campus. That sorrow deepened with the news that a close relative of two Harvard dining staffers, a young woman who also once worked at the University, was among the dead. On Tuesday, Harvard students, faculty, and staff attended three vigils for the bombing victims, in Andover Chapel at the Divinity School, near the Baker Library/Bloomberg Center at the Business School, and at the Memorial Church, where candles undercut the darkness. At each venue, sadness mixed with hope, and tears with resolve. 2Claire Aly writes a heartfelt message to her Harvard Business School co-worker Patty Campbell, who lost her daughter in the Boston Marathon attacks. 8President Drew Faust and Pusey Minister Jonathan Walton light candles at the Tuesday night vigil. 3Harvard Divinity School student Emily Jendzejec offers a candle after a gathering for meditation, prayer, grieving, and community support at Andover Chapel. 5Claire Aly (left) cries for her co-worker Patty Campbell, whose daughter was killed in the attacks. 7Harvard University Police Department Officer Michael Arsenault stands watch in Harvard Yard. 6Campbell’s co-workers and others gathered at the Harvard Business School to show support. 4The flag flew at half staff at Harvard Business School, just one of the spots on campus where vigils were held. 1Honor Wilkinson ’14 (left) and Andrew Sudler ’14 light candles at the Memorial Church vigil Tuesday night. 9People gathered as one community.

by: David KarlA little over a month has passed since we rang in the new year and set personal goals to make 2015 the best year yet. So, how are your resolutions going? Good? Bad? Did you even make any? While it’s true that the new year invites new beginnings (and new resolutions), the reality is, you can make a resolution any time of the year. And, they don’t have to be run-of-the-mill resolutions like getting in shape, saving more money, etc., which—let’s face it—are all-too-easy to not accomplish.Consider making some less typical resolutions for 2015 that affect your professional life. Have you ever thought of how you can apply your resolutions to your financial institution? Probably not. But, just like we set measureable performance-based goals, you could make professional resolutions that—while they may not be completely measureable—will positively impact your financial institution.To get you started, here are three vendor-related resolutions you could fulfill this year to ensure you have brought more value to your institution and your customers.1.

“Throughout a school year you really develop wonderful relationships, strong relationships with your students. And teaching remotely has been a very difficult thing to do for that very reason, because we miss those connections, we miss those daily interactions,” said Tiderencel. Over a two-week period, students carried their teachers around, participating in a whole bunch of activities. They say they do this to help stay in touch during a tough time. Teachers were forced to get creative to fill a void while not being around students. In the Johnson City School District, the second-grade team took on a new project based on the book “Flat Stanley.” “How are we going to engage second-graders in online learning when they’re not right there in front of us?” asked Fahrenbach. JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — With schools being closed across the state, students and teachers had to adapt to online learning. It was at first a worry for many, including second-grade special education teacher at Johnson City Erin Fahrenbach. “We’ve been doing math and reading and writing lessons all along, but it was nice to see something that caught their interest and motivated them to do a little more with their writing,” said Fahrenbach. “We sent each child a flat teacher of ourselves and their assignment was to take us on adventures with them,” said Tiderencel. Second-grade teacher Heidi Tiderencel says that’s been tough to do remotely. For more pictures of the adventures the “Flat Teachers” went on, head over to the Johnson City School District Facebook page. “I went to Sesame Street and I went to my piano practice with them,” said second-grader Stephen Howell. “It was just a really fun project to make connections with our kids since we can’t be with them in the classroom,” said Tiderencel. The students were then asked to write about what they did, an engaging assignment from the start.

The 6,000-mile round trip to Baku for the climax of the Europa League will deliver the defining verdict on their first seasons in charge for Arsenal Manager Unai Emery and his Chelsea counterpart Maurizio Sarri this evening.According to BBC, the final will shape how their campaigns are viewed – although for Italian Sarri there is no guarantee that even victory will see him handed a second season at Stamford Bridge.A major European trophy is at stake. Sarri’s job may be at stake. And Arsenal’s future is at stake, as they know only victory will lead them to the riches of the Champions League next season. So who does this confrontation in far-flung Azerbaijan mean most to – Unai Emery or Maurizio Sarri?The final may mean little more than a successful conclusion to a complex, contradictory season for the chain-smoking Italian, who arrived at Chelsea after his work at Napoli drew glowing references from the cream of the coaching crop, including Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola.It may yet rank as only something Sarri leaves for Chelsea to remember him by.Sarri’s season at Chelsea has been conducted against the backdrop of discontent among supporters who grew tired of his predictable substitutions.Those reached a low point in February when his go-to replacement of Mateo Kovacic with Ross Barkley (it was vice versa at various other points), was greeted with ironic laughter and chants of “you don’t know what you’re doing” from his own fans during the FA Cup fifth-round loss to Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.It came after a 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth and a 6-0 mauling by Manchester City and just before goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga’s open challenge to Sarri’s authority when he refused to be substituted in the Carabao Cup final before a penalty shootout which Chelsea.The much-vaunted ‘Sarri ball’, which was meant to be high-paced attacking football combining pressing and short, quick passing exchanges, has turned out to be largely tedious and relatively easy to rumble by teams of higher class.He has also alienated Chelsea fans by marginalising N’Golo Kante, regarded as the world’s finest holding midfielder, on the right of a three-man midfield to accommodate his favoured son Jorginho in the Frenchman’s favoured position.The big-money buy from Serie A is simply not in Kante’s class as that sort of operator.Sarri’s use (or lack of use) of precocious teenager Callum Hudson-Odoi was also an issue, with England manager Gareth Southgate seeming to show more belief in his talents.As a result of this lack of game time, it seemed this outstanding young winger was determined to leave the club. A serious Achilles tendon injury has put a stop to that for now.Their win percentage in the Premier League was 55.3% from 38 games, with exactly the same number of wins, 21, as Emery. The overall ratio was a highly respectable 61.3% from 62 games so far.Sarri’s problems, however, have extended beyond the field of play.There has been no connection between him and Chelsea’s fans, with not even the presence of Stamford Bridge legend Gianfranco Zola helping form a bond.And yet, if he wins in Baku, Sarri may be able to present a strong case to Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich that he has actually fulfilled his remit and deserves to build on the last 12 months.If a crystal ball of Sarri’s season in August had predicted a third-placed finish, the League Cup final only being lost on penalties to the team that completed the domestic clean sweep and an appearance in a major European final, surely this would have been deemed acceptable?If he had achieved this at other clubs there would be talk of a contract extension, not of a parting of the ways.Chelsea finished fifth under Antonio Conte last season and although the FA Cup was won, his relationship with the club’s hierarchy had fractured.Would anyone else have done any better this season? No-one marked Chelsea down as serious title contenders but they finished above Tottenham and behind two of the outstanding Premier League teams in recent memory.This Europa League final means much to Sarri – whether it means a lot for him at Chelsea or somewhere else remains to be seen.If Chelsea win, he can give Abramovich tangible evidence of his success and may even persuade the Russian that an alternative, such as Frank Lampard, is a romantic vision rather than a realistic one.If that is not enough for Chelsea, the sight of Sarri holding the Europa League trophy aloft will confirm in the eyes of Serie A giants such as Juventus, Roma or even AC Milan, that this is a coach of serious substance who should be given the appreciation in his homeland he may feel he has never been afforded in England.For Emery, the final means a return to familiar territory for the man who has made this tournament a spectacular speciality – winning it three times in succession at Sevilla, the last time when impressively outmanoeuvring Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool in Basel in 2015.Emery has shown the sure touch of an expert in guiding Arsenal past Napoli and Valencia in the knockout stages and, from a personal point of view, winning in Baku would simply strengthen the confidence of the Gunners’ hierarchy that they have the right man to move the club forward after the 22-year reign of Arsene Wenger.In many respects, however, overcoming Chelsea tonight will mean more to Arsenal’s long-term future than to Emery’s, who will be given time and patience to shape the club irrespective of the outcome in Azerbaijan.Arsenal risk falling further adrift of the Premier League elite if they are out of the Champions League for another season – especially with neighbours Spurs, who lived in their shadow for so long, contesting the Champions League final with Liverpool in Madrid on Saturday.For Emery, securing his status as the man to win Arsenal’s first European trophy since the 1994 European Cup Winners’ Cup will increase his own confidence and that of those who employed him.To claim the trophy for the fourth time as a manager would also be a remarkable personal feat.It would, crucially, mean his first Arsenal campaign would be regarded as a success on two fronts – a trophy in the cabinet and a return to European football’s top table after the stale end to the Wenger eraShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

He cited Marrone and Hackett as the reasons he originally chose Syracuse.“Syracuse changed the deal on me when Coach Marrone and Coach Hackett left to go to the NFL. That really put a damper on things,” Allen said. “It really made me second-guess everything. Not knowing the offensive coordinator is going to be a downfall for me.”Allen committed to Syracuse in May and was considered one of the Orange’s top recruits in the Class of 2013, making ESPN’s Elite 11 Finals, one of 25 high school quarterbacks invited to the competition.
