Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) celebrated its 150th anniversary with a Sesquicentennial Gala held on Thursday, May 4, 2017. The event brought together nearly 150 HSDM alumni, faculty, students, and friends for a festive evening at the Harvard Art Museums.Harvard President Drew Faust kicked off the Gala with congratulatory remarks and a champagne toast. She noted many of the School’s milestones, including that HSDM was the first American dental school to be affiliated with a university and its medical school, among other significant achievements.“The Harvard School of Dental Medicine has long been a place of firsts. A place for pioneers who devote themselves to the deeply humane work of caring for and improving the lives of people through the application and creation of knowledge,” Faust said.“Today that work is visible in the education of students, in the work of clinicians and researchers, and the impact of efforts to promote oral health in communities both down the street and around the world.”“May the beneficent work of the School continue for at least another 150 years!” she added.Guests gathered in the Calderwood Courtyard to enjoy dinner, remarks and entertainment.Kellie Moore, a third-year D.M.D. student, spoke of what inspired her to go to dental school and the importance of student scholarship aid.

It will be celebration time next week when the PING women’s fourball betterball tournament marks its 10th anniversary.The Plate and Grand Finals take place on Monday and Tuesday, September 7 and 8 respectively, at PING’s own Gainsborough Golf Club in Lincolnshire. Each day, 50 pairs will compete for the titles, continuing a success story which began in 2006.The tournament, which is run by England Golf, was an instant hit when it was launched and thousands of players from 800 clubs grabbed an opportunity to play an unusual format for women.Over the past decade the tournament has become one of the highlights of the calendar and became so popular that the Plate Final was added to the Grand Final in 2009.This year, 846 clubs took part by running qualifying rounds and the 50 pairs who reached the Grand Final mostly scored 44 points or better, with just four claiming their place with 43 points. The remaining 37 clubs with 43 points and 13 clubs with 42 points successfully qualified for the Plate Final. The ballots for both finals were decided on countback.The tournament is an event which combines competition with friendship and club spirit. Most finalists arrive in their club colours and pairings have featured mothers and daughters, in-laws, sisters, twins – and a pair whose surnames were Duck and Mallard.There’s been players as young as 12, as well as competitors at the other end of the age spectrum. One pair brought their own fan club –an entourage of nine supporters from their proud club, bearing a large, home-made banner.The players represent all abilities, with high handicappers and low, internationals and very new golfers, county players and former professionals. One finalist played when she was 37-weeks pregnant and, twice, competitors were so determined to take part that they played solo when injury or illness forced their partners to call off.Finalists have also faced some interesting hazards, such as the time when a deer chewed a competitor’s ball!The rewards for reaching one of the finals include a fabulous goodie bag, great prizes and a lovely lunch. The most-common word at registration is ‘Wow!’ and when one competitor signed in for last year’s Grand Final she asked the organiser: “Can I kiss you now? It’s Christmas come early!”Click here for championship webpageCaption: 2014 Grand Final winners Sheila Mcdonald (left) and Pam Wiseley (Image © Leaderboard Photography)PAST WINNERSGRAND FINAL2014 Pam Wiseley & Sheila Mcdonald – Houldsworth, Cheshire2013 Denise Page & Sarah Dawson – Willow Valley, Yorkshire2012 Rita Towler & Dorothy Scholes – Harwood, Lancashire2011 Laura Harrison & Abbie Spence – Hobson, Co Durham2010 Cath Rawthore & Hilary Tarleton – Sale, Cheshire2009 Sue Elliott & Rachael Thomas – Henbury, Gloucestershire2008 Bridget Moore & Jenny Readman- Meon Valley, Hampshire2007 Cynthia Hollingsworth & Megan Ball – Colne Valley, Essex2006 Shirley Kay & Jenny Knight – Matlock, DerbyshirePLATE FINAL2014 Sian Mansey & Carol Simpson – Horsley Lodge, Derbyshire2013 Karen Hughes & Elaine Ducker – Cottingham, Yorkshire2012 Ros Ford & Sarah Gotts – Cretingham, Suffolk2011 Philippa Mason & Samantha Reagan – Shooters Hill, Kent2010 Ruth Coleby & Linda Young – Penrith, Cumbria2009 Lilias Adamson & Sue Pearson – Ely City, Cambridgeshire 2 Sep 2015 PING women’s tournament marks its 10th anniversary
ARCADIA, Calif. (May 26, 2016)–Grass specialists Bal a Bali and Quick Casablanca head a field of 10 three year olds and up in Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 Charles Whittingham Stakes, to be run at 1 ¼ miles on turf.Named for the legendary late Hall of Fame conditioner who was affectionately known as The Bald Eagle, Whittingham remains Santa Anita’s all-time leading stakes winning trainer with 204 added money triumphs to his credit. Originally run as the Hollywood Invitational Turf Handicap in 1969, the race, which was won a record seven times by Whittingham, was renamed in his honor following his death in April, 1999. ROYAL ALBERT HALL: A clever 1 ¼ length allowance winner over the course at a mile and a quarter two starts back on March 25, English-bred Royal Albert Hall returns to Santa Anita following a solid third place run in the Grade II, 1 ½ miles turf Elkhorn Stakes at Keeneland April 23. Ridden by Flavien Prat, he was beaten a length and will be reunited with Rafael Bejarano, who was aboard for the allowance win on March 25. Trained by Doug O’Neill, “Albert” has been no worse than third in three starts this year and he is 7-1-3-1 over the local course. Although he has run from well off the pace in the past, he appears best suited when he can sit mid-pack early. Owned by Head of Plains, Keh, Knight and partners, Royal Albert Hall, who has two wins from 18 overall starts, seeks his first U.S. stakes win in the Whittingham. He has earnings of $219,983.

QUICK CASABLANCA: Trained by Ron McAnally, who ranks second to the legendary Whittingham with four lifetime wins in the race dating back to superstar gelding John Henry’s consecutive wins in 1980 and ’81, holds a good hand with veteran Quick Casa Blanca, who comes off a facile 2 ¾ length win in the mile and three quarter turf San Juan Capistrano Stakes on April 10. Chilean-bred, Quick Casablanca is an 8-year-old full horse that has responded well to McAnally’s patient handling since arriving from New York early in 2014. Second two starts back in the Grade II, 1 ½ miles San Luis Rey Stakes on March 13, he was a close third three back in the Grade II, 1 ¼ miles turf San Marcos Stakes. Winless in eight tries at a mile and a quarter on turf, Quick Casablanca faces tougher competition in the Whittingham and his connections would welcome a fast pace which would complement his late running style. Owned by Pablo Gomez, Quick Casablanca is 28-5-8-6 overall with earnings of $749,160. He’ll be ridden for the sixth consecutive time by Tyler Baze. BAL A BALI: A Group I winner in his native Brazil in his only try going 1 ¼ miles on turf, this 6-year-old horse comes off a narrow defeat when third, beaten a neck, in the Grade III San Francisco Mile (turf) at Golden Gate Fields on April 30. Trained by Richard Mandella, Bal a Bali was off as the 9-5 favorite but just missed in a game effort. Third, beaten 3 ¾ lengths two starts back in the Grade I Frank E. Kilroe Mile (turf) here on March 12, he has a win and two thirds over the Santa Anita turf and has been first, second or third in his last five starts at middle distances on turf, the last four in graded stakes. Ridden to victory by Flavien Prat in his U.S. debut, the Grade III, one mile turf American Stakes at Santa Anita on May 9, 2015, Pratt has been aboard in his last three starts–all third place finishes. Owned by Fox Hill Farms and Siena Farms, LLC, Bal a Bali is 20-13-1-4 overall, with earnings of $751,478.
The new tactician who will be assisted by Mary Adhiambo has already named a squad of 30 players which is expected in camp on Sunday evening to start preparations for the COSAFA tourney.The squad has seen a return of strikers Neddy Atieno and Mwanahalima Adam who missed Starlets’ African Women’s Cup of Nations campaign. While Adam was finalizing her KCSE exams, Atieno was away in military training.Missing from the squad is last year’s top scorer Esse Mbeyu Akida who has taken some time off football to concentrate on her job in Kilifi with Moving The Goalposts (MTG), the Non-Governmental Organization which gave her a footballing chance.Harambee Starlets forward Esse Akida wheels away in celebration after scoring against Uganda during the 2016 CECAFA Women’s Championship. PHOTO/COURTESYAlso conspicuously missing from the squad is goalkeeper Samantha Akinyi and midfielder Christine Nafula.Starlets have been placed in Group B of the COSAFA Cup alongside Swaziland, Mozambique and Mauritius. They begin their campaign against the Mozambicans on September 14 at the Luveve Stadium in Bulawayo.Defending champions Zimbabwe have been placed in Group A and will face off with Zambia, Madagascar and Malawi while South Africa who won the preceding three tournaments in 2002, 2006 and 2008 headline Group C alongside Namibia, Lesotho and Botswana.With 12 teams competing this year, it is the biggest ever field assembled for the COSAFA Women’s Championship and shows the tremendous growth in women’s football in the last decade.At the same time, the national under-20 team will be leaving for Jordan later Sunday for a week-long training camp where they will play two friendly matches with the hosts.The junior Starlets are using the camp to prepare for their second FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia next month.

They were supposed to deliver at least 600 pieces of uniform to all the national teams but they haven’t done that as well as a monetary addition to the deal.The company was also supposed to provide replica jerseys for sale to fans but the same is yet to be done. The kit was used only once, during Harambee Stars’ 2-1 loss to Sierra Leone in an African Cup of Nations qualifier.This was the second kitting deal signed by the federation in the recent past.

You know what I’m talking about. You have had the same questions yourself, I am sure. But once we move beyond those obvious questions and the discussion gets deeper—down to the good stuff, where we all really start to learn about the greening of our industry—I occasionally get asked some different questions — second-level questions that are not as obvious.They are usually some variation on: What do I have to watch out for? What is my biggest risk? And my answer is the same, each and every time: Do not try to be something you’re not! You can’t fake this stuff any more than an Irish Catholic can fake his way into a Protestant pub in Belfast! (I know, because I tried it once). Well, I guess you can try it (I did), but it’s certainly not for the faint of heart!Where’s the beef?Not that being you is a bad thing; it’s just that it will be your death knell in trying to establish your credentials as a green professional, if your prospects see right through you.You tell me you are a manufacturer of “green” plywood, and I want to hear more than it is made from pre-consumer recycled content. You tell me you are selling green products for the lumberyard, and I want to see if you know more than what’s on the back of your company brochures. And if you are telling your sales prospects that you are a green builder or remodeler, you’d better be able to back that up, too.You can’t be part-time green and still call yourself green. Either you build green or you don’t. You can’t be a green professional and not have credentials like CGP, LEED AP, or LEED Green Associate to back it up. You can’t say you build green homes if you are not willing to submit the plans and construction methodology to the independent, qualified third-party analysis and testing of a recognized local or national green building program.There is no honor system anymore, folks. We had the chance as an industry to build right, and we blew it. If you are going to sell yourself as a green professional, you need to earn industry-recognized credentials to prove it, and you need to submit your products or homes to third-party review. So, don’t portray yourself as somebody you are not, and you will never violate my 6th commandment of building green. My advice to those involved with residential construction: if you are not sincere in your efforts to be a green builder/remodeler/supplier/architect, don’t try to be something you’re not. Quit fooling around, get out of the way, and do something you believe in. Otherwise, it will not be long before you are uncovered for what you are.Everyone wants to go greenOver the past several years I have traveled around the country, speaking to (and with) building professionals of all different types: custom builders and remodelers, midsize “custom” builders, and large production builders. I have also met with designers of every persuasion, from architects, engineers, and interior designers to do-it-yourself decorators with no credentials whatsoever. Some of my most powerful conversations have been with the most senior management of Fortune 500 suppliers, manufacturers, and retailers in the residential construction industry as well as owners of local mom-and-pop hardware stores.In every case, the conversation is about “going green.” Their business, my business, every business—and how we are all selling our products and services—is being impacted by the green tsunami sweeping over every aspect of our lives.Silk purse or sow’s ear?The most obvious questions I get asked regularly are: What’s green? Will it last or is it a fad? Can I really make money selling green? How do I “do” green?

Authorities in Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) plan to rework new routes to ferry apples out of the State from Shopian in volatile south Kashmir, days after suspected militants killed three non-locals in the area. “There is a need to enforce efficient route plans and facilitate timely secured evacuation of crops,” District Development Commissioner, Shopian, Choudhary Mohammad Yasin said . “Safe and secure management of apple crop is of foremost concern and every effort is being put in to resolve all the issues,” he added.Mr. Yasin met the members of the Fruit Growers Association in Shopian on Friday, in the wake of sudden attacks on non-locals, including the killing of two people related to the apple trade. The area has been observing a shutdown ever since the Centre revoked J&K’s semi-autonomous status. “The recent attacks may have shaken us but won’t stop us from protecting our crop,” said Mr. Yasin. “Apple is Shopian’s soul and we remain committed to securing it. Our apples will surely reach you in markets all over the country,” he added.Nazeer Ahmad (name changed), a member of the growers association from Shopian’s Heff, said the recent attacks were “mysterious”. “It’s hard to point out the motives behind the attacks. Apple trade is the sole means of income for a majority of families in Shopian. Many traders have already raised loans and the families have planned weddings,” he said.Authorities plan to set up about 10 “safe pick-up points” for smooth movement of apple trucks, officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The security establishment is in the process of securing five locations as “safe” points. More than 500 trucks have been placed at a secure location — Pir Ki Gali’s Poshana area — on the Mughal Road, which connects Shopian with Poonch. The Mughal Road bypasses the vulnerable Srinagar-Jammu national highway.A group of unknown gunmen rounded up about 18 non-locals, including labourers and fruit traders, in Shopian’s Trenz on Wednesday. Later, one non-local from Punjab was shot dead and another injured. The attacks have instilled fear among the orchardists but “apple loading continues unabated”, officials said.Also know as ‘Apple Town’, Shopian’s apple orchards are spread over 26,231 hectares, making it the biggest crop producer after Anantnag, which has 33,768 hectares of apple orchards. South Kashmir’s other districts, Kulgam with 25,606 hectares and Pulwama with 25,133 hectrares, produce a relatively smaller apple crop.According to the Horticulture department’s figures, the government-introduced market intervention scheme (MIS) — to pick the fruit directly from farmers due to the uncertain situation in the Valley — has seen a very healthy response from Anantnag, where 1,012 metric tonnes of apple has been ferried outside the State till October 10.“However, Shopian has seen little movement under the MIS. Just 23 metric tonnes has been exported from the district. Most crop is still on the trees as Shopian is the last district in the Valley to pick apples due to different weather pattern,” said an official at the Horticulture department, who declined to be identified.According to official figures, 1.45 lakh hectares is under apple cultivation in Kashmir, which produces 71% of the total output of the fruit in the country.
