Hitting the books after hitting a wall

first_imgThis article is part of a series on the impact of humanities studies in and out of the classroom.Miguel Garcia is a student again, back on campus to complete his degree after a bipolar diagnosis changed the course of his education and life.“It’s been a challenge,” said Garcia ’17, a history and literature concentrator in American Studies. “I never thought I’d be back. But I don’t think any of those experiences have been in vain.”Garcia’s grit and resilience took shape in Detroit, where he grew up the son of Mexican immigrants. Neither his mom, who works in an industrial laundromat, nor his dad, a housekeeper at a casino, speaks English. Garcia was the first in his family to graduate high school. Discovering the humanities at Harvard Related University’s brightest share their stories in video highlighting the value of studying art and culture “I was initially rejected at Cass Technical High School because my test scores were pretty low, but I asked for another shot, and a guidance counselor said, ‘If you go to summer school here and get all A’s, I’ll let you in,’” he recalled. “I graduated as valedictorian.”His arrival at Harvard in 2010 was a bit of a culture shock. “I had never had a white friend before I came to Harvard,” he said. “Outside this campus we may have not have been friends, but Harvard makes a community where we all interact and share ideas.”He served on former College Dean Evelyn Hammond’s working group on BGLTQ Life to establish Harvard’s first such center, and co-founded Shade, a student organization for LGBTQ people of color. His studies were going according to plan.But then, in the fall of his junior year, his life took a turn into adversity. After a bipolar episode, Garcia left campus, returning home to Michigan to focus on his recovery.“I struggled to get medication right,” he said. “For about a year and a half, I did not leave the house. My older sister, Dolores, is a nurse, and she took care of me.”In time, he improved, eating better, exercising, and eventually finding work — first as an English teacher in a middle school near Detroit, then, inside the city lines, as a peer support specialist helping clients navigate the mental health system at Adult Well-Being Services.“It’s been my favorite job and I’ve been working since I was 14,” he said. “I can make a difference in someone’s life to someone who is going through something similar.”When he returned to Harvard last fall, after four years away, Garcia felt determined to finish his degree, but in tough moments found himself “afraid of failing again.” With his friends having graduated and moved on, he worried about making new ones. Happily, he quickly found support from many students and faculty, including Lorgia García Peña, an assistant professor of romance languages and literatures and of history and literature.In his humanities studies he also found meaning to help explain parts of his own narrative.“Both the study of history and literature deal with the nuances of the human experience — the beautiful, the brutal, and the mundane,” said Garcia, who is studying for the GREs and has plans for graduate school to get dual master’s degrees in public health and social work. “Having a foundation in liberal studies is really helpful when talking about challenges in modern society. I wouldn’t have had that if I had gone straight into the mental health field.”Peña, whom Garcia also credits with easing his transition back to Harvard, described her student as “incredibly engaged.” She recalled specifically his sharp observations while reading Arlene Davila’s “Latinos Inc.: The Marketing and the Making of a People” in her course “Performing Latinidad.”“He looked at the board where I had scribbled some concepts, then back at me, finally raising his hand, not with a question but with a critical observation about the role of the media in shaping cultural perceptions of Latinos in the U.S.,” she said. “It stayed with me, the seriousness with which he approached both the text and the question I had scribbled. I am most impressed about Miguel’s commitment to social justice — his passion about what is right and the fact that he takes actions to make his community better.”Garcia, who was recently honored with the 2016 Life Unlimited Award from the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, said his battle with mental illness has allowed him to see his scholarship in a new light.“Before I was taking courses to put on my resume,” he said. “Now I’m thinking about how they can help me combat mental health stigma and help people access competent health care.”last_img read more

Outdoor Updates: potential fee changes in Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests

first_imgNew research shows that sharks have only one fear: the orca Tsali Mountain Bike and Equestrian Trail Complex increase from $2 to $5 per rider per day, and $15 to $30 for an annual pass. U.S. Forest Service proposes fee changes in Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests The U.S. Forest Service is proposing to change recreation fees at four areas in the Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests. Current fees have remained the same for over a decade and the goal of the fee change is to establish a consistent fee throughout all of North Carolina’s national forests and to pay to upgrade sites. Proposed fee changes include: Virginia regulators vote to enter the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative but face push-back from Republicans The public comment period is open from April 22- May 31, 2019. Comments can be sent via email to [email protected] center_img A citizen board responsible for regulating air pollution in Virginia has voted to enter into an agreement with other states to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions released at the state’s power plants. The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative aims to reduce pollution from fossil fuel powered power plants by 30 percent over the next 10 years. State republicans oppose the idea and are attempting to block the move, calling it a tax that will hurt the state’s ability to attract new businesses. Earlier this year, Governor Northam vetoed GOP legislation that would have stopped Virginia from participating in the program without support from two-thirds of the general assembly. Brown Mountain OHV Trail Complex and Wayehutta OHV Trail Complex increase from $5 to $15 per vehicle per day, and $30 to $60 for an annual pass. A new paper published in the journal Nature Scientific Reports has found that when great white sharks encounter orcas they flee immediately and will swim great distances to get away, not returning to the same area until the following year. Orcas swim as fast as great white sharks—35 miles an hour—and hunt in groups. They have occasionally been observed eating great white sharks. Researchers tracked 165 sharks near the Farallon Islands off San Francisco. In the best-documented case, orcas from two separate pods arrived in an area where 17 great white sharks were hunting. When the orcas arrived the sharks took off, swimming as far as fifty miles away. Scientists say that while they don’t know for sure why the sharks bolted it could be because they feared for their lives, or because they were being bullied by the orcas.

Oscar win draws unlikely political support for ‘Parasite’s’ Bong

first_imgThe rest of the family then scheme to secure jobs in the wealthy household by inflating their qualifications and pretending they’re not related.Concerns with class and inequality fueled mass protests in 2016 that led to Park Geun-hye’s impeachment and subsequent ouster and propelled Moon into power the next year. While Moon’s administration has since been hit by its own corruption scandals, allegations that the Park administration excluded artists including Bong from state funding complicate any opposition hopes of scoring points from his victory.Bong was among 9,473 artists and cultural figures blacklisted for voicing criticism of how the administration handled the Sewol ferry sinking in 2014, according to South Korea’s culture ministry. Also on the list was CJ Group’s Miky Lee, a relentless advocate for Bong who shared the Oscar stage Sunday and who the Park administration pressured the company to demote.That hasn’t stopped LPK candidates from trying to leverage Bong’s status as a symbol of South Korean soft power. Kwak Sang-do, who was once Park’s senior presidential secretary for civil affairs and later served on the National Assembly’s cultural committee, pledged to expand cultural facilities in Bong’s hometown of Daegu.‘Act of Desperation’Another conservative candidate, Bae Young-shik, suggested erecting a statue of Bong, naming a street after him, as well as restoring his birth home.“The US, Russia, and Europe do not hold back on investing to honor their artists, politicians, academics, and scientists by making streets and erecting statues,” Bae told the DongA Ilbo newspaper. “We must support making Bong’s national contributions known all over the nationwide and worldwide.”Still, it’s unclear how many points such proposals will score with voters.“This is an act of desperation by the South Korean conservatives,” cultural critic Chin Jung-kwon wrote on Facebook. “They are trying to free-ride on director Bong Joon Ho’s glorious victory — that’s some gall.” Topics : “Parasite” director Bong Joon Ho is getting support from unexpected quarters in the wake of the film’s historic Academy Awards triumph: South Korean conservatives.Since Bong became the first director of a foreign-language film to hoist a Best Picture Oscar on Sunday, conservative politicians have been rushing to lionize the filmmaker. One candidate seeking election in the country’s upcoming parliamentary election has proposed naming a street after Bong and erecting statues to him and his characters. Another proposed building a film museum in his hometown.The calls are surprising if only because they’re coming from members of South Korea’s opposition Liberty Korea Party, the successor group that backed former President Park Geun-hye. Park’s staff maintained a blacklist that denied state funding to artists such as Bong and more than 9,000 other cultural figures critical of the government.center_img The attempt to capitalize on “Parasite’s” groundbreaking Oscars success highlights a problem facing the LKP as it attempts to take the National Assembly back from President Moon Jae-in’s Democratic Party in the April general elections.A recent Korea Gallup poll showed 31% of the voters were undecided while 36% supported the ruling Democratic Party and 20% for the Liberty Korea Party, which voters historically associate with the pro-conglomerate policies widely blamed for the social inequality given global exposure by Bong’s film.Class and Inequality“Parasite” tells the story of the poor Kim family whose son Ki-wu gets a job teaching English to the daughter of a tech executive named Park Dong-ik. last_img read more

KPK receives more than 800 complaints on social aid in less than 3 months

first_imgTopics : According to Jakarta-based SMERU Research Institute researcher Athia Yumna, the root cause of the problem was the sluggish pace at which regional governments regularly updated their list of beneficiaries.To ensure accountability in the distribution, the KPK issued a circular in April that urged government agencies and regional administrations to utilize the Social Affairs Ministry’s Integrated Data on Social Welfare (DTKS), in addition to citizen identification numbers to verify social aid recipients.The KPK has also urged regional governments to deliver the aid to citizens who are unregistered but meet the central government’s criteria to receive the COVID-19 relief. Afterward, regional governments are expected to submit reports on said social aid distribution to the Social Affairs Ministry to update the beneficiary data. Previously, KPK chairman Filri Bahuri asserted that those found guilty of corruption relating to COVID-19 relief funds could face the death penalty. The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has received 894 complaints pertaining to social aid in less than three months through its dedicated digital platform, JAGA Bansos, as the government distributes trillions of rupiah to help citizens during the COVID-19 epidemic. The complaints came from 243 regional administrations, namely 19 provincial administration and 224 cities and regencies administration, between May 29 and Aug. 7.“As many as 369 reports were from those who did not receive social aid even though [they said] they had registered for the program,” said KPK commissioner Lili Pantauli Siregar during a press conference on the KPK’s biennial performance report on Tuesday. center_img The KPK has resolved 357 of the total complaints, while 207 others were being processed. In the meantime, the agency is still verifying the remaining 312 complaints. JAGA Bansos is a feature in KPK’s portal and mobile app, JAGA, which provides the public with information and complaint submission services. The feature, which is accessible at jaga.id, allows the public to make reports over suspected irregularities and misappropriations regarding the distribution of COVID-19 relief.The initiative is also part of the KPK’s role in supervising the government’s national COVID-19 mitigation spending, totaling Rp 695.2 trillion (US$47.03 million). Out of this budget, the government has allotted Rp 203.8 trillion for social safety nets, including various forms of social assistance.The distribution of the assistance, however, has faced many hurdles, with reports mentioning slow or mistargeted distribution amid red tape and lack of coordination among central and regional governments. last_img read more
