Portrait of former Harvard Chan School Acting Dean David Hunter unveiled

first_img Read Full Story A crowd of faculty, staff, and students gathered at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health on Sept. 6, 2017 for the unveiling of a portrait of David Hunter, Vincent L. Gregory Professor in Cancer Prevention, Emeritus and former Dean for Academic Affairs and Acting Dean.The event was held in the Kresge Building’s Rosenau Atrium, where the walls are lined with portraits of Harvard Chan School’s past deans as well as a series of “Ghost Portraits”—black and white portraits of notable African Americans and Native Americans in public health who were accomplished in their careers but minimized in history.After the portrait by artist Stephen Craighead was unveiled, Hunter discarded his blazer to reveal that he was wearing the same blue shirt and tie that was depicted in the painting. He posed next to it, eliciting laughter and applause.Hunter was appointed Dean for Academic Affairs in 2009, and served as Acting Dean in 2015-16.Dean Michelle Williams thanked Hunter for his many years of service at the School, which included serving as director of the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention from 1997-2003 and as founding director of Harvard Chan School’s Program in Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology (now called the Program in Genetic Epidemiology and Statistical Genetics). Hunter’s research focuses on the nutritional, environmental, and genetic causes of cancer.Hunter has joined the faculty at Oxford University, where he plans to launch a collaboration between Oxford and the Harvard Chan School in epidemiology.“The truly wonderful thing about the School of Public Health is its people—faculty, staff students,” Hunter told the crowd. “We may not always agree on what is the most important thing in public health. We may not always agree on the strategy to improve public health. But we always agree on the importance and centrality of the mission.”– Karen Feldscherlast_img read more

What to watch in compliance

first_img 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Brandy Bruyere Brandy Bruyere, NCCO was named vice president of regulatory compliance in February 2017. In her role, Bruyere oversees NAFCU’s regulatory compliance team who help credit unions with a variety of … Web: www.nafcu.org Details NAFCU’s compliance team works daily to offer award-winning compliance assistance and services to all federally insured credit unions, helping keep compliance teams up to date on regulatory hot topics. One of the signature resources that we offer is the Compliance Blog, which covers hot-button credit union industry issues. As we enter the second half of the year, NAFCU’s compliance team is here with the latest rundown of the most popular blog posts to date. 1. NCUA Priorities At the beginning of the year, NAFCU Regulatory Compliance Counsel Reginald Watson outlined the NCUA’s supervisory priorities and shared what credit unions can expect in 2019 regarding examinations coming down the pike. The blog focuses on BSA compliance, adverse action notices, overdrafts, the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, cybersecurity and the new current expected credit losses (CECL) accounting standard. Many of these regulations are seeing significant developments at their respective regulatory agencies and we will keep credit unions updated on further developments.2. OverdraftOverdraft compliance and legal risk continues to be a challenging issue for the industry. Before the CFPB announced its review of the rule, NAFCU Senior Regulatory Compliance Counsel Elizabeth LaBerge answered questions on overdraft policies and how credit unions can establish policies that obligate members with negative balances to repay a negative balance. LaBerge also discussed Regulation Z disclosure requirements as they relate to overdraft policies.3. ACH / Electronic Payments Can credit unions place a hold on ACH debit transfers that are used to fund the online opening of a checking account? In a recent blog, NAFCU Regulatory Compliance Counsel David Park explained what constitutes an electronic payment under Regulation CC and what transfers are or are not subject to the next-day availability rules. 4. Private Education LoansAs student loans face more scrutiny, NAFCU Regulatory Compliance Counsel Loran Jackson explained in a recent blog that any credit provider that makes a private education loan (PEL) – which is defined as a loan extended to a consumer in whole or in part for postsecondary education expenses – is a private education lender. She further provided analysis on Regulation Z’s student loan rule as well as the CFPB’s Education Loan Servicing Exam Manual.5. Change-in-Term NoticesRecently, there have been several inquiries related to change-in-term notices for checking and savings accounts. NAFCU Regulatory Compliance Specialist Alma Calcano created a chart outlining regulations for these notices. She noted that this is part of a three-blog series that will help credit unions navigate regulations governing change-in-term requirements. Those interested can sign up to receive NAFCU Compliance Blog posts in their inbox every Monday, Wednesday and Friday by clicking here.In addition to the Compliance Blog posts, NAFCU’s award-winning compliance team strives to provide resources on hot-button issues that impact the credit union industry, including its Credit Union Compliance GPS  – updated annually – and features new information on S.2155 provisions, field of membership, privacy, BSA, and more. Members of the compliance team will also be at NAFCU’s 52nd Annual Conference and Solutions Expo, June 18-21 in New Orleans. Other conferences this year include the Summer Regulatory Compliance School and BSA Seminar, which are in Minneapolis, Minn. -NAFCU Vice President of Regulatory Compliance Brandy Bruyerelast_img read more

Mangano Appoints Panel to Review Nassau Contracting

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Nassau County officials have launched a second review of their contracting process since New York State Sen. Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) was accused extorting bribes in exchange for influencing a county contract.Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, a Republican, appointed a three-man panel that will review the county’s contracting process, he announced Monday—four weeks after acting Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas, a Democrat, issued a report recommending reforms amid her office’s continuing review of a system she called “a recipe for corruption.”Mangano’s appointees include Hofstra University President Stuart Rabinowitz, former Keyspan CEO Robert Catell and Frank Zarb, the former chairman of the Nassau Interim Finance Authority, the state panel that oversees the county’s finances.“I commend them for their civic involvement and look forward to their review,” Mangano said.The panel and Singas’ review come after Skelos and his son, Adam, were arrested on federal corruption charges in May for allegedly conspiring to take bribes in exchange for, among other things, steering a $12 million Nassau stormwater treatment contract. The county has not been accused of wrongdoing and both men have pleaded not guilty. Skelos later resigned from his role as senate majority leader, but not his seat.Singas praised Mangano for appointing the trio.“I applaud the county executive for taking our recommendation and appointing a distinguished panel to reform Nassau’s broken and corruption-prone contracting process,” she said in a statement. “I hope that this panel adopts the comprehensive recommendations detailed in our report, including the establishment of an independent inspector general to police the contracting process.”Aside from appointing an IG, issues Singas raised in her 36-page report last month include the lack of a credible process to verify self-disclosed information provided by prospective vendors, politically influenced compliance investigations, unchecked discretion that leaves the county vulnerable to lobbyist manipulation, the lack of a central database of contracts, an inadequate vendor registration system and difficulty in crosschecking bidder’s information against public officials’ financial disclosure statements, which she said should be submitted electronically.Shortly after Skelos’ arrest, Mangano issued an executive order creating a county lobbyist registry. The legislature later passed a bill codifying that move. But the new Nassau lobbyist registry still requires a fraction of the information compare to what New York City collects, Singas warned.Singas was appointed district attorney in January after her former boss, Kathleen Rice, assumed her recently won congressional seat. Singas, who was nominated by the Nassau County Democratic Committee as their candidate to continue serving as the county’s top law enforcement official, faces a primary challenge from Michael Scotto, a former Manhattan prosecutor and Port Washington native. The winner of the primary will go on to face the Republican challenger, Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray, on Election Day.last_img read more

Strickler switches gears, then checks out in second half of Shryock Memorial All-Star main

first_imgKyle Strickler restarted right where he wanted to for the second half of the Shryock Memorial All-Star feature, then checked out in winning the Saturday night IMCA Modified special and $4,000 at Hancock County Speedway. (Photo by Chad Meyer)BRITT, Iowa (Aug. 12) – Kyle Strickler was right where he wanted to be midway through Hancock County Speedway’s Shryock Memorial All-Star main event.As a result, he was right where he wanted to be at the end of Saturday’s 50-lap feature for IMCA Modifieds.Strickler stayed close to Ryan Ruter following numerous cautions throughout the first half and was running second when the race was halted for the mandatory pit stop at halfway.He restarted second, took the lead almost at the drop of the green and checked out on the rest of the 31-car field, taking the $4,000 checkers handily ahead of Ruter.“It was so important to be lined up second,” Strickler explained. “The track had rubbered up and I was definitely trying to position myself for the restart.”“It’s tough to run well in a field this good but we made a gear change (at halfway) that helped us,” he added. “I knew if I could get out front I’d be tough to catch.”The second 25 laps ran caution-free. The only thing slowing down Strickler was traffic as he took the win in front of Ruter, Mike Mashl, 11th starting Brian Mullen and Benji LaCrosse. Ruter also went home with a check for $4,000, which included a bonus of $1,000 for leading lap 25.Shane Monson started 26th and ended in eighth; Richie Gustin was also a plus 18 on the night after starting 28th and ending in 10th.After finishing one spot short of a transfer from his “B” in Thursday’s Night of 1,000 Stars program, Strickler had finished 13th in Friday’s Night of 10,000 Stars at Britt.“We were struggling,” admitted Strickler, already on the ballot for next year’s Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational, “but this was a good way to end the week.”Hunter Marriott clinched the IMCA Speedweek crown with his 17th place finish.Cody Nielsen was the $750 IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock winner and Darin Toot’s IMCA Sunoco Stock Car victory paid $600.Colby Fett and Lucas Lamberies swapped the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod lead back and forth before Fett took the front spot for good late in the 20-lapper. Those checkers were good for $500.Feature results – 1. Kyle Strickler, Mooresville, N.C.; 2. Ryan Ruter, Clear Lake; 3. Mike Mashl, DePere, Wis.; 4. Brian Mullen, Seymour, Wis.; 5.

Lorenzen keys UW offensive attack

first_imgAs the Badgers’ volleyball team opened the Big Ten season this weekend with victories over the No. 5 Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Iowa Hawkeyes, the passing game once again proved to be vital to their success.Wisconsin came into the 2005 season with a reputation as a strong offensive team with their big outside hitters Aubrey Meierotto and Maria Carlini, middle blocker Sheila Shaw, and redshirt freshman Audra Jeffers stepping in at rightside hitter.However, head coach Pete Waite has strived to make his team known for more than just their offensive power, as passing and defense have been a vocal point of his practice sessions.The importance of the Badgers’ passing game was apparent in the season’s home opener as they defeated No. 11 UCLA with sophomore setter Jackie Simpson leading the way with 41 sets.As Wisconsin tipped off against the Gophers in the Big Ten season opener this past Friday at the UW Field House, the significance of their passing game became even more evident.With the Badgers off to a sloppy start early on in the contest with Minnesota, Waite turned to junior setter Katie Lorenzen, as Simpson was struggling to get UW’s hitters the ball.Lorenzen provided Wisconsin with an energy boost off the bench and helped will them to a 3-2 victory with 25 assists. She also tallied three blocks and a career-high six kills with no errors in nine attempts (.667 attacking percentage) in the match.”It was huge the way Katie Lorenzen came in here and got us on track,” Waite said. “She basically got the win for us and she basically gets the game ball for this one … if we gave game balls out.””It seemed like we [were] kind of disjointed out on the court,” he added of the decision to turn to Lorenzen. “It wasn’t totally Jackie’s fault, I think the passing was off also and they’ve got some great servers on their team.”We were just looking for someone to come in and steady us out. I think even when Katie started in there she was struggling with her location a little bit, but as she got out there and settled down she was great.”Lorenzen’s impact didn’t come immediately when she entered the game, but she gained more confidence with each point to which she contributed en route to victories in game two, four, and five.”I was a little nervous when I went in. I felt like my hands were shaky, but the team just brings a ton of energy. The crowd was awesome tonight so I got a lot more confidence with every point,” Lorenzen said.In fact, Waite was riding Lorenzen’s momentum into the Iowa match Sunday as she started for the first time since Oct. 15 of last year.”Katie came off the bench on Friday and did an awesome job,” Waite said. “She won the match for us basically, came in and just changed the tempo of things, got us on track and had an awesome match so I thought she really deserved the start.”But with the Badgers off to another slow start Sunday in the first match, Waite turned back to Simpson at setter.”As [Lorenzen] started [Sunday], I felt she wasn’t quite as crisp as we needed. The tempo and personality of the team wasn’t as high as we needed,” Waite said of his decision to return to Simpson.For Simpson, she holds no grudge in being benched and actually looks at it as more of a learning experience in improving her fundamentals in only her second season.”[I need to work on my] early draw and hold my phrase on the follow through — those two things, and then everything else will just fall into place,” Simpson said.”It’s all about consistency and that’s the thing we’ve been striving for, so it’s just finding that,” she added.Whoever gets the nod at the setter position, Waite knows that he can turn to his bench in almost any situation after Lorenzen’s ability to step up this weekend.”We’ve got two very good setters and on any given day, they’re going to step in like any position we have out there — middles, rights, lefts, DS’s — people will come in and help us out,” Waite said.last_img read more
