Harvard students help show Sox faithful ‘green’ is the new ‘crimson’

first_imgAs President Drew Faust threw out the ceremonial first pitch during Harvard Night at Boston’s Fenway Park on Sept. 22, thousands of spectators  were busy throwing out their recyclable plastic cups and bottles in the bags held by 30 Harvard students who spent the evening volunteering for the Red Sox Green Team.  The students, the majority of whom were freshmen who had expressed a commitment to the environment and sustainability through the Green ’14 program, were joined by the University’s recycling czar Rob Gogan and staff from the Office for Sustainability.The volunteers’ evening kicked off with an orientation from a member of the Red Sox staff and then the eager group of students spread throughout Fenway to collect bags of recyclables. The students said they appreciated the opportunity to help the environment and represent the University while exploring the nation’s oldest ballpark.“The experience was incredible! Not only did we get to explore Fenway Park, but we all got to do something we were passionate about,” said Kristen Wraith ’14.  “It was amazing how well the crowd responded to the Green Team. I had so many people thank me for what I was doing and ask how they could do the same. This is something that I would do again in a second.”This wasn’t the first group of Harvard students to help show the Fenway faithful that “green” is the new “crimson.” Last spring, a group of Graduate School of Education students volunteered on the Fenway Green Team during the Red Sox first home game of the season. The Red Sox organization recruits volunteer Green Teams to collect recyclables during games throughout each season.As part of Harvard’s commitment to building a healthier, more sustainable campus the University has made recycling and composting a priority.  The recycling rate at Harvard’s main campus is 55 percent, thanks in part to the adoption of single stream recycling.  Single stream recycling means all recyclables – from paper products to bottles and cans – go in the same bin. Recently, Harvard Recycling announced that even paper coffee cups and pizza boxes (if the food has been scraped out) can be recycled. Of course, it’s always best to bring your own reusable coffee mug with you to reduce waste and even save money (many cafes on campus offer discounts to students with reusable mugs). Recycling is also incorporated into all home football games at Harvard Stadium.To learn more about single stream recycling, check out Harvard’s September Green Tip of the Month.last_img read more

The Textalyzer? New efforts aim to curb texting by drivers

first_img Read Full Story Although most states ban texting by drivers, the problem appears to be getting worse—and road fatalities are on the rise. To change people’s behavior, lawmakers and public health experts are devising new strategies, some of which mimic strategies to combat drunk driving that began nearly three decades ago.Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health is developing a new plan based on the effective designated-driver campaign that it orchestrated in the late 1980s, which was promoted by Hollywood, the media, politicians, sports leagues, and corporations. Jay Winsten, associate dean and director of the Center for Health Communication at Harvard Chan School, said in an April 27, 2016 New York Times article that the new campaign won’t focus on scolding drivers for multitasking; rather, it will urge them to be more attentive, and will encourage parents to set a good example for their children.last_img read more

Samsung pledges to quit coal construction, but not before building Vung Ang 2 plant

first_imgSamsung pledges to quit coal construction, but not before building Vung Ang 2 plant FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:Samsung C&T Corp. will finish two more coal projects before exiting the sector.Construction of the two ventures, the Gangneung facility in South Korea and the Vung Ang 2 project in Vietnam, are scheduled to be completed in 2023 and 2024, respectively. The pledge to exit the coal industry is “unprecedented” for a non-financial firm in South Korea, the company said in a statement.The de-facto holding company of the Samsung empire has faced growing criticism over its involvement in coal amid mounting global pressure to halt use of the dirtiest fossil fuel. Activist climate investors expressed concern Samsung C&T remained committed to the two projects.Global investors are increasingly voicing concerns over the risks associated with South Korea’s overseas coal financing as the state-owned Korea Electric Power Corp., known as Kepco, continues to approve plans to invest in new projects. BlackRock Inc., the world’s biggest asset manager with a stake in the utility, urged the company to provide clear strategic rationale for its investment in new plants in Vietnam and Indonesia.Kepco’s board of directors approved a $200 million investment in the Vung Ang 2 project earlier this month. A joint venture between Samsung C&T and Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co. will be in charge of engineering, procurement and construction for the project, a Kepco spokesman said Oct. 6.Samsung C&T said its trading arm will also gradually exit from all coal-related businesses once its existing contracts terminate, while seeking to expand its business into LNG and renewables. The company will completely withdraw from the Gangneung project after selling all of its 29% stake, which it can do it three years after commercial operations begin in end-2023.[Heesu Lee]More: Samsung construction arm to ditch coal after 2 more projectslast_img read more

When it comes to analytics, culture is just as important as data

first_img 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Credit unions can talk all they want about data analytics, but putting those tools in place won’t mean much without an analytics culture.That’s the word from two former credit union executives – Brewster Knowlton, principal of the Knowlton Group and Rich Jones, principal of Leading2Leadership – who spoke during the Analytics and Financial Innovation conference here.“Technology is the easy part of the process,” explained Knowlton. “When we say analytics or data, people think IT. The last thing that comes to their mind is change of management or cultural transformation.”Too often, Knowlton explained, credit unions build a data warehouse and consider the work done. “That doesn’t solve the rest of the organization’s challenges,” he said. “How do we actually get that adoption? It starts with establishing stakeholder needs [and] getting to the point where you’re getting collaboration between departments.” continue reading »last_img read more
