At Harvard, incoming freshmen select their favored study, waking, and sleeping schedules before arriving on campus so that roommates can be matched to complement and enhance their lifestyles. As President Drew Faust said during Freshman Convocation for the Class of 2020, learning also takes place outside the classroom during everyday interactions in which students augment each other intellectually while living together harmoniously. “Everyone in this community has the right to be heard, to be listened to, to be treated with dignity and respect,” Faust has said. “Our life together, our success as a University, and our aspirations toward Veritas depend upon it.” The diverse interests of roommates enliven the living environment, combining to form a thriving undergraduate community. Echoing the concept of religious pluralism outlined by Diana Eck, faculty dean of Lowell House, student ideas and cultures can be likened to bodies of water that change and shift directions as they move organically to fill rivers and tributaries. Here are portraits of roommates from the Class of 2020.
Star Files View Comments Roomies for life! The Book of Mormon star Ben Platt reunited with Pitch Perfect costar and Broadway alum Skylar Astin on the set of the film’s sequel, and shared on Twitter this hot shot of the two handsome leading men. From the looks of it, it seems as if they were both just sorted into Gryffindor, but something tells us Pitch Perfect 2 won’t change location from Barden University to Hogwarts. Platt and Astin play Benji and Jesse, respectively, two roommates who join the all-male a cappella group The Treblemakers. The sequel has a release date of May 15, 2015, so we have less than a year to wait, aca-fanatics! Ben Platt
Governor Wolf Touts Restore Pennsylvania Benefits in Blair, Clearfield Counties May 29, 2019 Infrastructure, Press Release, Restore Pennsylvania Altoona, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf was joined by local leaders on a walking tour of Altoona to observe blighted business fronts, including the condemned Penn Central Place, to discuss how Restore Pennsylvania could assist with revitalizing Pennsylvania’s communities.“My vision for Pennsylvania includes vibrant towns and cities with new development, opportunities in rural and disadvantaged areas, and a modern, interconnected commonwealth,” said Governor Wolf. “Restore Pennsylvania is the only way to properly invest in the people, and the future, of Pennsylvania.”Restore Pennsylvania, funded by the monetization of a commonsense severance tax, will invest $4.5 billion over the next four years in significant high-impact projects throughout the commonwealth to help catapult Pennsylvania ahead of every state in the country in terms of technology, development, and infrastructure.The infrastructure plan will help communities address blight, expand broadband access, mitigate the effects of localized flooding, and expand green infrastructure.“Like many municipalities in Pennsylvania, the city of Altoona is doing what we can with the current resources available to us, but lack of funding has prevented us from truly addressing our infrastructure needs,” said Altoona Mayor Matt Pacifico. “We are thankful that the governor is working on a solution, like Restore Pennsylvania, to truly help us address our needs instead of placing the financial responsibilities solely on our residents.”Encompassing new and expanded programs to address five priority infrastructure areas including high-speed internet access, storm preparedness and disaster recovery, downstream manufacturing, business development, and energy infrastructure, demolition, revitalization, and renewal, and transportation capital projects, Restore Pennsylvania projects will be driven by local input about community needs. Projects identified by local stakeholders will be evaluated through a competitive process to ensure that high-priority, high-impact projects are funded and needs across Pennsylvania are met.“Establishing new sources of funding for critical economic development projects remains a priority for all organizations like Altoona-Blair County Development (ABDC) Corporation,” said Steve McKnight, President & CEO, ABCD Corporation. We are open to all ideas to make that happen and appreciate being a part of this ongoing discussion”Later today, the governor will visit Clearfield Area Jr./Sr. High School in Clearfield County to learn about broadband issues there that affect students and parents in this mostly rural district.“Our children need access to affordable high-speed internet to build a better life for themselves, stay in Clearfield County, and compete with people around the world,” said Superintendent Terry Struble. “In today’s global economy, broadband is essential to accessing information, building a business, and achieving a quality of life these young people expect. It’s not a privilege; broadband offers the opportunities that our students deserve.”Nearly one million Pennsylvanians, many in rural areas, lack access to robust, reliable, high-speed internet.Learn more about what critical infrastructure could be fixed in your community with Restore Pennsylvania at governor.pa.gov/restore-Pennsylvania.

PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 6- Muhoroni Youth head coach Jeff Odongo has admitted he is uncertain of the future of the team after they were relegated from the Kenyan Premier League following a 7-0 thrashing by Kariobangi Sharks on Saturday.The sugarbelt side who gained promotion in 2012 has faced a tumultuous season characterized by financial struggles and there have been fears that the life of the team might come to an end once they slide back to the National Super League. “As per now we are uncertain of what exactly the future holds for us but we will wait. The management said they are looking for new sponsors but up to now, there is no news yet so we don’t exactly know how things are,” Odongo told Capital Sport.He has explained that the reason for their financial struggle has been their sponsors’ dwindling business which has in turn made it difficult for them to remit cash to the football team.“The lack of sugarcane hurt our sponsor’s business because it became hard for them to bring money to football when in the first place their own employees were not being paid. We are still hopeful though that things will look up for them,” Odongo noted.“We are going down to the NSL and even there, you need to have good money to make it count. It is huge heartbreak for us because this is a team that builds the youth, but I believe we can work hard and come back to the KPL within one season,” he added.Muhoroni’s star looked to shine bright after performing well last season including winning the KPL Top Eight title but a hugely underperforming season, punctuated by frequent coaching turnover and cries of unpaid salaries have seen their efforts waste down.Muhoroni Youth head coach Jeff Odongo (right) listens to his assistant James ‘Odijo’ Omondi (squatting) during their match against Kariobangi Sharks at the Kasarani Stadium on November 4, 2017.

If they lose their next match and either Thika United or Mathare United pick one point, they will be relegated.Zoo Kericho and Nakumatt FC also have some relegation fears cropping up. Zoo are 13th with 37 points while Nakumatt are a place below them with 36, just four shy of the automatic relegation zone.The two teams can however guarantee themselves safety with a win in either of the two remaining matches.“Mathematically, we are still not safe. My target is to get just three points from the available six and then look at how we can be better next season. It hasn’t been easy especially in the second leg but I am confident we will still be in the league,” Nakumatt head coach Anthony Mwangi said.Mathare and Thika will also guarantee themselves safety if they win just one of their remaining two matches.Nakumatt play Sony Sugar away and Kariobangi Sharks at home, Thika play Zoo Kericho away and Bandari at home while Mathare United play Muhoroni Youth at home and Posta Rangers away.-Kimanzi’s best season-Mathare United head coach Francis Kimanzi and his assistant Salim Ali engage the team in a half time pep talk during a past Kenyan Premier League match.

With youngsters sometime they might get a bit excited and not do things correctly but I am happy because in every game I see alot of improvement in individuals and the team,” Kimanzi said after his team’s 1-0 win over Nzoia.“But at the end of the season if we are still in the league, this would be one of the best seasons in my career because I have experienced lots with top level teams and sometimes it’s nice to have the feeling of coaches who struggle and more so doing it with players who are less talented and maybe younger,” the experienced tactician, one of the most qualified in the region said.-Matano pleased-AFC Leopards head coach Robert Matano with Team manager Gilbert Selebwa after their Kenyan Premier League match against Nakumatt on November 5, 2017.

We will not be relegated at the end of the season and we also finish with a trophy which is good. It has not been the way I want but nonetheless we have achieved something. Now it’s time to plan for next season,” Matano offered.KPL weekend resultsSaturday: Kakamega Homeboyz 2 Chemelil Sugar 2 (Mumias Complex), Kariobangi Sharks 7 Muhoroni Youth 0 (Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani).Sunday: Tusker FC 0 Thika United 1 (Ruaraka Complex), Mathare United 1 Nzoia Sugar 0, AFC Leopards 1 Nakumatt 0 (Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani), Bandari 0 Posta Rangers 0 (Mbaraki Complex), SoNy Sugar 1 Sofapaka 0 (Awendo Stadium), Western Stima 2 Ulinzi Stars 2 (Moi Stadium, Kisumu), Zoo Kericho 1 Gor Mahia 1 (Afraha Stadium, Nakuru).0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
