Life along the Charles from sunrise to sunset

first_imgOn a walk along the Charles River you might encounter an artist painting, a lone man running, or a woman meditating among the sweeping branches of a weeping willow tree. Look up and you’ll see bird formations sweeping across a pastel blue sky. On the water are paddle boarders and crew boats. Breaking the near-silence of the early morning are muffled shouts from motorboats to rowers.The Charles River, an 80-mile expanse of water, named for a former king of England — by the king himself — is prettiest as the sun sets and rises each day. At these hours, the river feels meditative and restorative, as the woman sitting cross-legged in the weeping willows has surely discovered.Bridges connect the Charles to Boston and Cambridge. From east to west the bridges are the Longfellow (or Salt and Pepper), the Mass. Ave., the BU, Weeks Footbridge, and the Anderson Bridge at Harvard. Countless more bridges stretch through 23 towns and cities ending in Hopkinton at the river’s source.Soon the bustling Anderson Bridge, which connects Harvard Yard and Harvard Square via JFK Street to the Harvard Stadium and Business School in Boston, will become even more so with the planned opening of the Science and Engineering Complex next fall.This river and its bridges, which we’ve traversed many times, have connected us, too. Through beauty in nature, exercise, and social interactions, we celebrate the Charles.,Oft in sadness and in illness,I have watched thy current glide,Till the beauty of its stillnessOverflowed me, like a tide.– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow from “To the River Charles”,Related Autumnal exposures: Colorful moments in passing Harvard, in the background Missing campus?

4 times when speaking up is the right thing

first_imgFor someone like myself who cares deeply about my relationships with family, friends, and coworkers, it can be difficult to be assertive, for fear of being inconsiderate or argumentative. Many mistake not being forceful or opinionated with a lack of strength; this could not be further from the truth. Here are four scenarios when speaking up is not just okay, but the best decision you can make.When you witness misconductFor some, it’s easy to come forward when another employee demonstrates dishonest or inappropriate behavior. For others, the misconduct is not mentioned for fear of future strife with the particular employee. No matter if your relationship with the individual becomes strained, speaking up on what you’ve witnessed (or heard) is always the right thing to do. Your supervisors will respect your adherence to company policy.When you’re being taken advantage ofWe all must work outside our given job descriptions. Contributing to the team by going above and beyond your given duties is essential not only to the company’s success, but also to your professional advancement. Keep in mind, though, that there’s a difference between being trusted with additional tasks and being stretched too thin. If you feel you have reached your limit in what you are able to do, speak up. If you have too many balls in the air your work may suffer. So, coming forward and being honest will demonstrate to your supervisor that you not only care about the quantity of work given but most importantly its quality.When you don’t understandNo matter if you’re in an entry-level position or in a supervisory role, never be afraid to ask questions. Don’t pretend to know more than you do. Speak up if you have concerns or need more information about the work you’ve been tasked with. It’s better to be confident in what the expectations are then to not completely understand. That way you know you’ll get it right.When you just feel strongly about somethingThere is a difference between being aggressive with your concerns and opinions and actually asserting yourself in what you feel strongly about. Don’t be afraid to be different than your colleagues. If things are going a way you don’t agree with or a work topic is being discussed that you truly have passion for, step up and make your feelings known. As long as you do so in a professional manner, your coworkers should respect your strength and your confidence. 28SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Wendy Moody Wendy Moody is a Senior Editor with Wendy works with the editorial team to help edit the content including current news, press releases, jobs and events.

Antitrust regulation will change under Biden, but don’t expect revolution.

first_img– Advertisement – F.T.C. commissioners serve staggered terms and need Senate approval, so it could take time for the balance to shift. In any case, experts say the political climate isn’t ripe for an aggressive policy overhaul. David Vladeck, a Georgetown University law professor and former director of the F.T.C.’s consumer protection unit, said that even though “antitrust laws haven’t worked very well in the digital economy,” he doubted a revolution was either desirable or possible. Similarly, Eleanor Fox and Harry First of New York University, who recently outlined new rules to rein in Big Tech, said there was plenty of room for consensus in the ideological middle, balancing nuanced views on market efficiency and consolidation. – Advertisement – The F.T.C.’s five commissioners are currently three Republicans and two Democrats. The Democrats, Rohit Chopra and Rebecca Slaughter, often oppose the majority’s “permissive” treatment of corporations, and one of them could become the new head of the agency. Indeed, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce recently urged Mr. Simons to “immediately stop work on all partisan, controversial items,” noting that leadership “will undoubtedly be changing.” – Advertisement – A debate has raged between more laissez-faire conservatives and the so-called progressive “hipster antitrust movement” seeking a more muscular competition policy overhaul, especially toward Big Tech. President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. is expected to seek a balance between these competing ideologies.center_img And Sean Royall, a former deputy director of the F.T.C.’s competition bureau who is now a partner at the legal giant Kirkland & Ellis, said, “The changes we expect are on balance fairly moderate.” Joe Simons, the chairman of the Federal Trade Commission, said Thursday that monopolies could “squash” smaller competitors by buying them, a possible warning shot ahead of the agency’s expected lawsuit against Facebook. The statement highlights how the agency’s approach to antitrust could change under a Biden administration, as the Democratic Party’s left wing pushes for even tougher enforcement, the DealBook newsletter reports.- Advertisement –last_img read more

No Huth for Foxes

first_img They return with Leicester in desperate need of a home win after just two league victories at the King Power Stadium this term. The record does not do the Foxes justice and it is a source of frustration for boss Nigel Pearson. “We are aware of the fact our home form has to improve, there’s no doubt about it. Before a ball is kicked you know your home performances and results are going to be very important,” Pearson said. “We haven’t played that badly, that’s one of the things which has been frustrating for us. We have had plenty of good performances but the results haven’t always come. We’re confident that will change.” Palace come to Leicester unbeaten in five games since Alan Pardew was appointed last month. Pearson is out to end Pardew’s fine start, although he admits the pressure is on his Foxes team. “People would look at a game like Saturday, whatever camp you sit in, and hope your team is capable of winning,” he said. “In some ways that puts more pressure on games like this. Ultimately, at our best, we are going to be a difficult team to play against. The defender, who signed on loan from Stoke on deadline day, was banned for two games and fined £15,000 by the Football Association after breaching rules in relation to social media comments, and is halfway through the suspension. Matty James is available after suspension, Riyad Mahrez is back following Algeria’s African Nations Cup campaign and Matt Upson is available after a long-term foot injury. Press Association “We have a healthy respect for people and on their day Palace are a very capable side. We have to make sure we’re getting our home form right and pick up three points. “We have been in the bottom spot for a while so it’s always an incentive to know three points gives you a chance to progress.” Pardew will throw non-league signing Keshi Anderson straight into the squad. Anderson, 19, joined Palace on deadline day from Barton Rovers, who play in Southern League Division One Central – seven tiers below the top flight. The striker has scored 19 goals for Rovers this season but secured his move after notching a six-minute hat-trick against Palace in a trial match for Brentford. “Six minutes isn’t bad is it? He’s just got a chance, that’s what it is,” Pardew said. “It’s an opportunity for him, he trained with us today and I’ve put him in the squad tomorrow. “It’ll be good experience for him to come to see what goes on and his headlights are still full on.” Palace will be without captain Mile Jedinak for the trip to the Foxes after the midfielder returned from helping Australia win the Asian Cup with a sore ankle. Yannick Bolasie is also unavailable. The winger is at the African Nations Cup with DR Congo, who play a third-place play-off on Saturday. Robert Huth is suspended so cannot make his Leicester debut against Crystal Palace on Saturday. last_img read more

Rodriguez staying with Saints

first_img A ruptured anterior cruciate ligament means it has been over a year since the 25-year-old last played, but that has not prevented speculation about a summer move mounting. Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool were among those to have reportedly shown an interest, but Rodriguez has dashed their hopes by agreeing a new deal at Southampton. The England international’s contract was due to expire next summer, but he has now penned an extension taking him through to 2019. “I’m delighted,” Rodriguez said. “It’s a great club and we’ve done amazingly this year. “It’s been a tough year for myself being out, but I’m really delighted to sign the contract. It’s now about looking forward to the future. “The medical staff have all worked tirelessly with me, so this is great news. I just want to carry on improving now and to try to get some game time.” The last of Rodriguez’s 76 Southampton appearances came at Manchester City last April, when an awkward fall ended his World Cup dreams. That injury has kept him out ever since but the forward could well make a first-team return before the season comes to a close. Rodriguez’s return will be a big boost for Southampton, while his renewed commitment to the club is a welcome development following last summer’s unparalleled talent drain. “This is very good news for the club because there was some speculation about Jay and interest from other big clubs, so it is a compliment to the club that we have an agreement,” manager Ronald Koeman told Southampton’s official YouTube channel. “It has been a difficult time for Jay who has been doing everything to come back in a good shape. “It’s a good start to the summer business for us because it shows that everyone here is convinced by what we want to achieve.” Rodriguez was not the only Southampton player approaching the last year of their contract, with Nathaniel Clyne also in the same position. Speculation about the right-back has increased in recent months, with Manchester United strongly linked with a summer move for the England international. The fact Clyne is out of contract next summer has fuelled talk and Saints manager Koeman has repeatedly underlined the importance of knowing whether he would sign a new and improved deal or not. Executive director Les Reed planned to sit down with the full-back after Saturday’s defeat to Leicester and it appears there is a chance he could yet stay on the south coast. Previous talks over extending Clyne’s contract have stalled, but Press Association Sport understands negotiations over a new deal have reopened. Whether a deal can be struck is another matter, but the resumption of talks is a positive move given it appeared all but certain the 24-year-old would be heading for the exit. Press Association Jay Rodriguez has ended speculation over his future by signing a new and improved contract at Southampton, keeping him at St Mary’s until 2019. last_img read more
