Interns and fellows share findings with Harvard conservation community

first_imgConservators and preservation specialists from across Harvard gathered to learn about the projects and challenges faced by several interns and fellows working across Harvard, in the museums and libraries.“It was a great learning experience,” said Kelli Piotrowski, a Kress Fellow working at Weissman Preservation Center. “My background is in rare books, and I got to branch out and work with materials ranging from 14th-century manuscripts to mid-20th-century architectural drawings.”The Harvard Library hosts up to two graduate level conservation interns each year at the Weissman Center. This year, the library received a grant from the American Institute for Conservation to support a Kress Fellowship in postgraduate conservation work.Brenda Bernier, head of the Weissman Preservation Center, observed, “Fellows and advanced interns bring fresh ideas and ask insightful questions that keep us on our toes. It also gives us the opportunity to contribute to the education of the next generation of conservators.  Both sides benefit from the exchange. We hope to get sustained funding to continue offering fellowships across all of Preservation Services.” Read Full Storylast_img read more

Facebook in organ donation push

first_img Share Philip Barton explains how his son’s transplant prompted him to use Facebook to raise awareness about organ donationThe NHS and social networking site Facebook have joined forces in an attempt to increase the number of organs being donated.People will be able to register as an organ donor through the website and share their intentions with family and friends.Three people die every day while waiting for a transplant, NHS says.NHS Blood and Transplant said the partnership was an “exciting new way” to encourage donation.Around 10,000 people in the UK are on the waiting list for an organ.‘Life event’The NHS said only half of registered organ donors told their families that they wanted to donate their organs after death. If somebody is on the register then legally the organs can be used for transplantation. However, organs are not taken if the family is too upset by the prospect. The NHS said relatives who knew the person’s wishes were far more likely to consent.People can now say they are an organ donor as part of their “Facebook Timeline”. It is marked as one of their life events alongside getting married, having a new job or moving home. It will also mean people can register to become an organ donor through the NHS’s own pages on the social networking site.Inspired by friendsSimon Milner, the UK policy director at Facebook, told the BBC: “This is about making it easier for families in that highly emotional time as somebody dies, that they know this person is a register organ donor.“The second thing is to encourage people who may have thought about it in the past, but have just not got round to it or who might be inspired by finding out that 10 of their friends are organ donors, or 100 of their friends are organ donors, that they want to do it too.“We think there’ll be a double benefit from this.”NHS Blood and Transplant’s director of organ donation and transplantation, Sally Johnson, said Facebook was a “fantastic way” of getting families to talk about organ donation now instead of at “the worst possible time”.She said: “We need more people to sign up to the register and share their wishes with their friends and family, our job is to make that as quick and easy as possible. “This is an exciting new way to use the power of social media to reach a huge audience and encourage people to think about it, act, and share that information.”Initially, similar partnerships will be launched in the US, Australia and the Netherlands. Facebook then hopes to widen the scheme to other countries.By James GallagherHealth and science reporter, BBC News Share Sharing is caring!

Gregg Berhalter named USMNT head coach

first_imgColumbus’ form faltered in 2018 as talk of Berhalter’s impending departure grew, but the team recovered to upset DC United in the play-offs and reach the Eastern Conference semi-finals.37 – Gregg Berhalter is the 37th head coach in #USMNT history. Since the start of 2014, no #MLS club scored more goals from corners than Berhalter’s Columbus Crew. Welcome. pic.twitter.com/PQB3ElImu5— OptaJack (@OptaJack) December 2, 2018Crew chairman Anthony Precourt said on Sunday: “On behalf of the club, I want to congratulate Gregg and thank him for his visionary leadership and commitment to establishing Columbus Crew SC as a consistently high-performing, playoff-caliber team.”Precourt drew criticism for his public attempts to move the Crew from Columbus to Austin during Berhalter’s time at the club. Gregg Berhalter has been appointed as the United States’ new head coach after months of speculation.USA had been without a permanent boss since October 2017 when Bruce Arena quit after failing to guide the team to the 2018 World Cup, the States missing the finals for the first time since 1986. Dave Sarachan had taken charge of a series of friendlies in the meantime as US Soccer delayed making a decision on an appointment, with his contract up at the end of the year following friendly defeats to England and Italy last month.And Berhalter has belatedly been confirmed as the new man, as expected, leaving Columbus Crew in MLS after five years.He becomes the first USA coach to have represented the country as a player at a World Cup, collecting 44 caps as he played a prominent role at the 2002 finals in Japan and South Korea.The first U.S. World Cup veteran to coach the #USMNT. Gregg Berhalter has a message for all our supporters:— U.S. Soccer MNT (@ussoccer_mnt) December 2, 2018″This is a tremendous honor,” Berhalter said. “Having played for the national team, I know what it means to represent our country.”I believe in our players and our program and, together, we will work to build something special and develop a team that will make our supporters proud.”US Soccer announced that the appointment was ratified by unanimous vote at a meeting on Saturday.Berhalter has long been tipped for the role, having reached the MLS Cup final in 2015, where the Crew were beaten by the Portland Timbers.last_img read more
