In Germany, learning while seeing

first_img Related President’s funding will allow organizers to lay groundwork for new Harvard programs overseas A different kind of teachingThe Harvard program’s roots are almost a decade old. That was when Beckert, who is from Germany, realized that his students often had little exposure to life outside the United States.Beckert, whose expertise is in 19th century U.S. history, initially devised a semester-long course in Germany. When the University decided to concentrate study-abroad efforts in the summer, he developed the current program, with the help of funding from the President’s Innovation Fund for International Experiences.“It helps for students to see things could be different,” Beckert said. “In the U.S., the debate [on problems like sustainability and migration] often suffers from a hopelessness … It can be done; there are possibilities. That’s something we must teach them.”Another characteristic of the program is that it throws instructor and students together for longer periods of time, allowing teachers to get to know students better then they would in a Cambridge lecture course.“We leave [for excursions] at 9 [a.m.] and are back at 9 p.m.,” Beckert said. “We read ‘All Quiet on the Western Front,’ and I was walking with a group of students talking about how literature contributes to writing history. It’s not on the syllabus, but these moments happen a lot … For me as a teacher, it’s much more satisfying.“It’s also fun. It reminds me of why I wanted to be a teacher. We’re making a difference in the lives of very smart people.”SaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSave Seed capital for summer learning First in an occasional series on Harvard’s wide-ranging programs and research in Europe.FREIBURG, Germany — The sky soared blue and flowers dotted the ground at Auschwitz when Ayanna Dunmore visited.“When I was looking at the ruins of the gas chamber, a butterfly was flying … next to me,” Dunmore said.It was mid-summer, and nature’s exuberance provided a startling counterpoint to the horror associated with the camp where the Nazis systematically gassed more than a million people, most of them Jews. Beauty and memory created a dissonance for Dunmore, a Harvard sophomore, and her Harvard Summer School classmates.“It was very hard to be in that space, but it was also very eye-opening. There’s only one gas chamber left, which we did walk through. That was actually one of the most disturbing parts for me,” Dunmore said. “You could definitely imagine what it must have been like for the people who were actually there.“I just kept feeling like there is a very big difference between learning about the Holocaust from history books and even the Holocaust Museum … [and] going to where it happened, walking along the trail where those poor prisoners were actually forced to walk, and being at places where so many atrocities were committed — walking into the gas chamber and thinking … that could have been you. It creates a lot of emotions that are hard to put into words.”To Sven Beckert, a strong summer program is about dissonance. It’s about immersing students in a new environment, exposing them to fresh perspectives, and challenging them, not just intellectually, but also emotionally and socially, in ways impossible during regular classes in Cambridge.The inaugural eight-week program, officially the Harvard Summer Program in Freiburg, Germany, offered four classes to 20 Harvard students. Beckert, the Laird Bell Professor of History at Harvard and the program’s director, taught the core course, examining European responses to migration, urbanization, and the lingering effects of its own fraught history.“The general theme of the program is to explore how Europeans deal with issues of great contemporary relevance,” Beckert said.In addition to Beckert’s course, Sheila Jasanoff, Pforzheimer Professor of Science and Technology Studies at the Harvard Kennedy School, taught a course on sustainability, while two faculty members from the University of Freiburg, Elisa Orru, a postdoctoral fellow at the university’s Centre for Security and Society, and Uwe Wagschal, a professor of political science and chair of comparative politics there, taught privacy and inequality, respectively.To Beckert, the classroom material served to prepare the ground for the out-of-class experiences. About half of his teaching occurred during an array of excursions beyond the classroom and Freiburg itself. The three-day trip to Poland and Auschwitz was a key excursion, part of the program’s emphasis on historical memory and how Europe deals with its sometimes painful past, but students ranked other trips as important too, in particular a visit to a World War I battlefield in France whose preserved front-line trenches made a stark visual impact.“One of the advantages of teaching a course like this in a setting that is intrinsically comparative is getting students to see that the same problem can manifest itself in a variety of different ways,” Jasanoff said. “Part of the secret of being able to live in a multicultural world is being able to see from the other person’s point of view what the world looks like.”In addition to the classroom teaching and the new understanding from travels around the region, the 800-year-old town of Freiburg was a classroom itself. Lessons were unavoidable just wandering its cobblestone streets, whether using budding German skills to strike up conversations, exploring the local culture through Flammenkuchen and other foods not found in Massachusetts, or even sampling urban transit models while hopping trams or dodging the legions of bicyclists who crowd the streets of lovely Freiburg, which prides itself as being Germany’s greenest town.“Even if I’m not around, students learn,” Beckert said. “It’s learning not for grade, it’s learning for the rest of your life.”Green town as classroomFreiburg today is a modern town built up around an old center, whose cobblestone streets, sidewalk cafes, and venerable stores are only accessed by pedestrians and bicyclists.Freiburg prides itself on its environmental sustainability and provided a living case study for students in Jasanoff’s sustainability course. The town is nested in a nation that, unlike the United States, has vigorously pursued clean energy policies, fostering renewables even as it works to close its nuclear plants.“Germany as a country probably represents the opposite pole to the United States in its embrace of sustainability as a public policy issue,” Jasanoff said. “Freiburg is probably the place you would name first if you wanted to study sustainability in Germany.”Sammota Mwakalobo, a Harvard sophomore from Quincy House, said the sustainability course was a big attraction of the program for her. A Tanzanian, her love of hiking and concerns about climate change came together in high school, when she hiked 19,341-foot Mount Kilimanjaro and saw the melting glaciers there.Outside the classroom, students experienced the town’s sustainability efforts firsthand, including its streetcars, in their daily commute from dormitories outside the town center and the ubiquitous bicycles that challenge cars for primacy on the area’s narrow streets. Two students produced a video about Freiburg’s “Blue Bridge,” which town leaders decided to close to vehicles and reserve for bicycles and pedestrians and which has become a symbol of the town, Jasanoff said. Students also had to comply with the complex recycling system and toured Vauban, a neighborhood dedicated to sustainability, with roads designed to discourage cars and homes designed to conserve energy, including some that annually contribute more to the electricity grid than they use.“There’s always something to learn from another place, no matter what,” said sophomore Michael Cheng.The town also illustrates that sustainability can be a boon to the economy. Freiburg is home to 100 solar companies employing 2,000 people, has 700 jobs in environmental education, and has 12,000 workers in environmental economics and research, according to town statistics.All that, combined with its location near Germany’s borders with France and Switzerland, which encourages teaching about the European Union (EU) and cross-border migration, make Freiburg an ideal setting for the program, Beckert said.Language and cultureSophomore Daniel Menz applied to the program in part because of his interest in modern Germany and in part for personal reasons: his great-great-great grandfather emigrated from a small town in central Germany to Minnesota in 1853.“Germany is so interesting at this time because it’s the largest economy in the EU,” Menz said. “It’s amazing. It’s been a pretty intense program.”In addition to the four core courses, there were optional language classes that proved, for some, an exercise in humility.“My highlight was I finally ordered food in German,” Dunmore said several weeks into the program, “which is a great moment.”The students lived together in hillside dormitories at United World College, under the eaves of the Black Forest, and when not in classes they were free to explore Freiburg, swim on hot days, hike nearby mountains, and immerse themselves in German culture and society.The gothic Freiburg Minster cathedral is possibly the most famous landmark in the city. Joe Sherman/Harvard Staff“I always ask, ‘What did you see, what did you observe?’ From students [you get] a sense how urban life can be different,” Beckert said. “You go to a coffee shop in Cambridge, people sit with their computers alone. Here, you go to a coffee shop to talk.”Course teaching fellows Balraj Kaur Gill and Hilton Simmet not only assisted in class, they also lived with the students in the dorms and provided out-of-class guidance, such as an introduction to cooperative cooking, a life skill useful anywhere.“Us cooking is pretty hysterical,” said Kate Brady, a sophomore social studies concentrator living in Dunster House. “We thought we were so tough, but we can’t cook for ourselves.”Harvard students shared the classroom with students from University College Freiburg, and each was paired with a German “buddy” who greeted them on arrival, showed them around, and eased the transition. The German students also diversified the classroom discussion, Jasanoff and Beckert said.In one class, Beckert recounted, students were talking about success and how New York is the city in which to “make it.” A German student offered a different point of view, saying, “I just want to be happy.”“They add tremendously to the discussion,” Beckert said. “They have read different texts, had different experiences, and say surprising things.”A World War I battlefieldOne place where the difference from Harvard’s campus was particularly stark was Hartmannswillerkopf, a peak in southeastern France’s Alsace region with a commanding view of the Rhine Valley.It was at Hartmannswillerkopf, also known as Vieil Armand, that French and German troops faced off during World War I in a ferocious battle for the high ground. From trench lines sometimes so close together that troops could hear each other’s conversations, they mounted assault after assault that moved the lines little, left 30,000 dead, and earned the mountain the nickname “man-eater.”After a trip of a little over an hour to get there, Beckert and the summer students toured the battlefield and sat beneath the shade of a tree to talk about World War I and its enduring impact on modern Europe.“It is completely different from teaching at Harvard,” Beckert said. “We do a lot of teaching on location … Learning on location is a big difference and a much better way to learn.”The trip to the quiet former battlefield included a tour by a French guide through the remnants of barbed wire and the trenches.“He took us through the French trenches and through the German trenches and through no mans’ land,” said Harvard sophomore Uriel Espinoza Gutierrez. “You see how they’re separated by maybe five meters at the most. And I think that was really telling, because you could kind of feel the memory there.”Sophomore Amelia Goldberg found a visual reminder of the battle’s ferocity — reflected today in its trees — most powerful.“The forest where the battle took place was completely destroyed, of course, because [of] cannons, artillery, heavy rain, and mud, everything. So there was a completely new growth of forest,” Goldberg said. “When you get to the top of the hill and look down … there’s just this line of a different color of forest around the edge of the hill … where the entire vegetation was wiped out and the traces [of the battle] still remain, preserved in the natural life.”In addition to its proximity to sites important in the world wars, Frieberg’s location near the intersection of three European nations helps teach about migration in the modern world, and about the ease of travel across national borders within the European Union. The students even visited a Basel neighborhood that prides itself on straddling all three countries. Another trip was to Strasbourg, France, where students saw the European Parliament, the EU’s legislative arm, and the European Court of Justice.“It was educational to sit in those spaces and see where the deliberations happen,” Jasanoff said of the impact on students. “My own view of this is it is a taste, it’s an appetizer that will lead them to do certain kinds of exploration.”last_img read more

Properly reporting your pro bono contributions

first_imgProperly reporting your pro bono contributions August 1, 2004 Regular News Properly reporting your pro bono contributions (Editor’s Note: It has come to the attention of the Bar’s Standing Committee on Pro Bono Legal Services that not all Bar members are properly reporting their pro bono hours on the Bar’s annual fee statement form. To address the concerns, Robin Rosenberg, chair of the Standing Committee on Pro Bono Legal Service, put together the following Q & A to set the record straight.) 1. Who has to answer the pro bono questions on the Bar fees statements? Everyone. 2. What should I do if I gave money to a legal services provider and personally did pro bono work? You should report in both boxes – items 1 and 3. 3. What happens if I didn’t do any pro bono work or contribute to a legal service provider this year? There is no sanction for reporting 0 hours or $0 contribution. The rules only require that you honestly report what you did. The providing of pro bono services is voluntary. Lawyers are encouraged to contribute at least $350 to a legal aid organization in addition to or in lieu of service, so if you didn’t provide any pro bono you may wish to fulfill the aspirational requirement in that fashion. While reporting 0s is not sanctionable, the failure to complete the pro bono section of the form is a disciplinary violation. 4. What is “collective satisfaction” and when should I check it? Collective satisfaction is only available to attorneys whose law firms have filed a “collective satisfaction plan” with their circuit pro bono committee. You should only report in box item 2 the number of hours allocated to you. Also, if you have personally provided pro bono services or have made a contribution to a legal aid organization, you should report this service and/or contribution in the appropriate boxes. 5. What counts as pro bono? Generally, pro bono services involve direct free legal assistance to an eligible client or client group or free legal services to charitable, religious, or educational organizations whose overall mission and activities are designed predominately to address the needs of the poor. Direct legal assistance involves such services as representation, interviewing prospective clients, participation in advice clinics, co-counseling and mentoring on pro bono cases, serving as a mediator or arbitrator, and providing guardian ad litem services.Pro bono services to charitable, religious, and educational organizations may involve such services as providing corporate representation to a nonprofit group establishing a health clinic for the poor, providing real estate legal assistance to a church developing low-income housing, or assisting a charitable group feeding the homeless to obtain tax-exempt status.Nonlegal work for charities, such as fundraising or volunteer service, does not count as pro bono legal services. Nor does legal work for nonprofit institutions on projects that do not primarily serve poor people. 6. How is “poor” defined? The “poor” are not only those living below the federal poverty guidelines (a sliding income scale based on family size), but also the “working poor.” The “working poor” is not defined but is generally those families who have limited means and cannot reasonably afford the legal services they need. A good-faith determination by the lawyer of a pro bono client’s eligibility is sufficient. 7. If I do some pro bono work on my own and some from an organized program, how should I answer question 1? It is appropriate to mark both (a) “on my own” and (b) “through an organized legal aid program” and then provide the total hours of pro bono service provided. 8. Can I carry over pro bono hours from a previous year, and how? If you provided more than 20 hours of pro bono legal work last year, you can carry over the difference, up to 20 hours a year in the two succeeding years. Just report the carry-over hours in the line asking for how many you performed this year. Of course, we hope attorneys will want to continue providing needed pro bono assistance and will want to report all of their pro bono hours each year, so the true amount of volunteer service being provided in a year can be measured.last_img read more

Govt confirms digital technology to be added to school curriculum

first_imgNewsTalk ZB 9 December 2017Plans to add digital technology to the school curriculum have been re-confirmed by the Labour-led Government.Digital technologies will be taught from years one to 10, with options to specialise in years 11, 12 and 13 by 2020.Education Minister Chris Hipkins said he commends the work of the previous Government for their work on this.“It’s been widely embraced by industry, by employers. I think the consultation exercise around it has been really sound.”Digital studies will be progressively introduced to the school curriculum over the next couple of years.The reason it won’t be fully introduced until 2020 is because Hipkins does not want to rush the program.“We obviously don’t want to impose a degree of compulsion until we’re confident the sector’s ready for that. There’s a lot of professional development required for the teachers, there’s more resource material development required.”http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/news/education/govt-confirms-digital-technology-to-be-added-to-school-curriculum/last_img read more

Potent cannabis increases risk of serious mental illness, says study

first_imgBBC News 20 March 2019Family First Comment:people who used cannabis on a daily basis were three times more likely to have a diagnosis of first episode psychosis, compared with people who had never used cannabisThis increased to five times more likely for daily use of high potency cannabis#SayNopeToDopeSmoking potent ‘skunk-like’ cannabis increases your risk of serious mental illness, say researchers.They estimate around one in 10 new cases of psychosis may be associated with strong cannabis, based on their study of European cities and towns.In London and Amsterdam, where most of the cannabis that is sold is very strong, the risk could be much more, they say in The Lancet Psychiatry.Daily use of any cannabis also makes psychosis more likely, they found.Experts say people should be aware of the potential risks to health, even though the study is not definitive proof of harm.Lead researcher and psychiatrist Dr Marta Di Forti said: “If you decide to use high potency cannabis bear in mind there is this potential risk.”Dr Adrian James from the Royal College of Psychiatrists said: “This is a good quality study and the results need to be taken seriously.”The findingsThe researchers found:Self-reported daily cannabis use was more common among patients with first episode psychosis, compared to controls – 29.5% (or 266 out of 901) of patients versus 6.8% (84/1,237) of controlsHigh-potency cannabis use was also more common among patients with first episode psychosis, compared to controls – 37.1% (334/901) versus 19.4% (240/1,237)Across the 11 sites, people who used cannabis on a daily basis were three times more likely to have a diagnosis of first episode psychosis, compared with people who had never used cannabisThis increased to five times more likely for daily use of high potency cannabisThere was no evidence of an association between less than-weekly cannabis use and psychosis, regardless of potencyThe authors estimate that one in five new cases (20.4%) of psychosis across the 11 sites may be linked to daily cannabis use, and one in ten (12.2%) linked to use of high potency cannabis.In London, a fifth (21%) of new cases of psychosis might be linked to daily cannabis use, and nearly a third (30%) to high potency cannabis.Removing strong cannabis from the market would lower London’s psychosis incidence rate from 45.7 to 31.9 cases per 100,000 people per year, the scientists estimate.For the South London region they looked at, that would mean 60 fewer cases of psychosis each year.In London, a fifth (21%) of new cases of psychosis might be linked to daily cannabis use, and nearly a third (30%) to high potency cannabis.Removing strong cannabis from the market would lower London’s psychosis incidence rate from 45.7 to 31.9 cases per 100,000 people per year, the scientists estimate.For the South London region they looked at, that would mean 60 fewer cases of psychosis each year.READ MORE: https://www.bbc.com/news/health-47609849last_img read more

Support For Legalising Cannabis Continues To Drop – Poll

first_imgSayNopeToDope NZ Media Release 29 May 2020A new poll – the first to be taken after the proposed bill to regulate cannabis was published by the Government – reveals that support for legalising cannabis for recreational use continues to drop.The survey by Curia Market Research shows that 50% of New Zealanders said they plan to vote against legalisation, and only 35% are planning to vote in favour. 15% are undecided or wouldn’t say. Ignoring the undecided voters, the potential result is 59% against and 41% in favour. Strongest opposition comes from men, older voters and National voters. Labour voters appear split on the issue.This polling is consistent with previous polling on the issue. The Horizon Research poll shows support for legalising has plummeted from 60% late 2018 to just 39% in 2019. This is a similar trend to the 1 NEWS Colmar Brunton Poll (39% support, down from 43%), and the Newshub-Reid Research Poll (41.7% support).“We’re stoked that our messaging and our SayNopeToDope campaign is getting through to families. It is clear that while Kiwis strongly support a compassionate response to those in real need with a cautious and researched approach around cannabis medicine, when they thoughtfully consider the real implications of legalising recreational use, they completely reject the proposal – and rightly so.”Evidence shows that marijuana – which has skyrocketed in average potency over the past decades – is addictive and harmful to the human brain, especially when used by adolescents. In US states that have already legalised the drug, there has been an increase in drugged driving crashes, youth marijuana use, and costs that far outweigh tax revenues from marijuana. These states have seen a black market that continues to thrive, sustained marijuana arrest rates, and tobacco company investment in marijuana.“At a time when New Zealand’s mental health system is bursting at the seams, why would we go and legitimise a mind-altering product which will simply add to social harm?”ENDSlast_img read more

Bishop Malzaire is new President of the Antilles Episcopal Conference

first_img 468 Views   one comment FaithLifestyleLocalNewsRegional Bishop Malzaire is new President of the Antilles Episcopal Conference by: Dominica Vibes News – May 9, 2017 Share Share Sharecenter_img Tweet Sharing is caring! Bishop of the Diocese of Roseau Gabriel Malzaire newly elected President of Antilles Episcopal ConferenceBishop of the Diocese of Roseau, Gabriel Malzaire has been elected President of the Antilles Episcopal Conference (AEC). The Antilles Episcopal Conference or the Antilles Bishops’ Conference comprises of nineteen dioceses from the Bahamas to South America. Bishop Malzaire, who was ordained Bishop in Dominica on 10 July 2002, told Dominica Vibes in an interview on Tuesday 9 May 2017, the AEC comprises of Catholic churches that are of three different languages. “They comprise the English speaking Caribbean, the French speaking Caribbean and the Dutch speaking Caribbean so those three language areas are covered by the Antilles Bishops’ Conference. As president of the conference, I’ve been appointed as head of the group of nineteen Bishops.”The permanent board as it is referred to, is made up of a president, vice president and a treasurer who serve a three year term. The new permanent board was elected via secret ballot on Thursday 4 May 2017 during their annual one week meeting which ran from April 30 to May 6 in St Lucia. Prior to the election the vice president of the board sends forms to each members who nominates fellow Bishops for the offices. At the meeting two nominees are selected from nominees to run for each office. “I think it is quite humbling because you know to just think that the Bishops have such level of confidence in me is quite humbling for me,” Bishop Malzaire said. However, he added that at the same time there is a lot of work ahead. “In fact I was saying to the people on Saturday evening it will entail a little more travel because we have a lot of meetings.”But, the board has found that web meetings have helped reduce the amount of travelling members does in order to meet and also decreases traveling and ticket costs. Bishop Jason Gordon of Barbados was appointed Vice President and Bishop Gerard County of Saint Vincent was appointed treasurer. Dominican Archbishop Kelvin Edward Felix served as president of this board for two terms, from 1991 to 1997.last_img read more
