  • Harvard Kennedy School faculty reflect on the death of Kim Jong Il

    first_imgThe death of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il brings up many questions about the future of the communist country and the Korean peninsula as a whole, where remnants of the cold war are still felt.“Internally, the North Korean regime will need to show consistently that they’re in command since the U.S. and South Korean militaries are prepared to respond to instability,” said John Park, Belfer Center fellow and senior program officer who directs Northeast Asia projects at the U.S. Institute of Peace. “Washington and Seoul’s concern is that instability will lead to a breakdown of command and control in a country that has active nuclear weapons programs. Beijing’s major concern is a massive outflow of North Korean refugees into the Chinese provinces in the border region.”In terms of the U.S. strategy in North Korea, Nicholas Burns, the Sultan of Oman Professor of the Practice of International Relations and former U.S. undersecretary of state said, “I think sitting tight is very important, expressing strong support for the South Korean and Japanese governments, making sure the North Koreans realize the strength of our alliance. I think that’s where the [Obama] administration is putting its attention and that’s what it should be doing.”Joseph Nye, Harvard University Distinguished Service Professor, writes, “In the short term of months, I do not expect great change in Pyongyang, but over the next year or so, Kim Jong Un [Kim’s son and successor] may find it difficult to consolidate his power with the old guard, particularly in the army.”last_img read more

  • Shelter Island Guide Sheds Light on Secluded Resort

    first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York If the Hamptons are the summer playground of the rich and famous, then bucolic Shelter Island—nestled between the North and South forks of Long Island—offers an escape from the glitz.Laying out a road map for those unfamiliar with the secluded East End resort community is the inaugural Shelter Island Comprehensive Guide, a new 190-page directory book compiled and published by local real estate agents Melina Wein and Yvonne Purcell.“My guide was written to share information on the wide range of activities, entertainment, businesses, artists, nonprofits and more that make our life on this island so special,” Wein said.The guide covers all aspects of life and tourism on LI’s smallest town, a tranquil 27-square-mile island that is accessible only by a five-minute ferry trip from North Haven on the South Fork and Greenport village on the North Fork. Cars are allowed on the ferries, space permitting since these crafts are relatively small. Passengers without cars can walk on board and enjoy the short ride on deck or sit inside the waiting room if they prefer.Chapters of the guide cover history, recreation, accommodations, entertainment, restaurants and shopping. The book also includes health and wellness, professional services, home services and a helpful section about the community.The guide exhaustively details just how much there is to do on there beyond what those taking a short cut from one fork to the other see on their drive down Route 114. There really is much more than meets the eye on this tiny island. For example, the Sylvester Manor, now a historic landmark, was once the largest slave plantation on Long Island–and its main house still looks like it did in the 1740s.Wein, who has raised her family with her husband on Shelter Island for the past 20 years, wrote: “I hope that this guide helps illustrate how Shelter Island is a beautiful place to visit, a great place to live.”Shelter Island Comprehensive Guide can be purchased for $9 at Shelter Island shops and online on the Amazon Kindle. The book can also be obtained for free by calling, emailing or visiting M. Wein Realty at 34 North Ferry Rd. on Shelter Island, calling 631-749-0999 or emailing [email protected]last_img read more

  • Eagles 3rd Annual ‘Red Out’ Game

    first_imgJac-Cen-Del High School basketball fans will turn the stands into a blaze of red Jan. 24 when the school hosts its third annual “RED OUT” to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke at its game against the Shawe Memorial Hilltoppers. Students and fans are encouraged to participate in the RED OUT by wearing red “GET FIRED UP” t-shirts, which are available for a $10 donation to the American Heart Association. The shirts will be available at JCD throughout Heart Week leading up to the game and at the game. The RED OUT is a community outreach program of the Student Council, which will be raising donations all week at school with several activities and getting the message out on a heart healthy lifestyle. All money raised by the “RED OUT” will support the American Heart Association’s mission of building healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke in Ripley County. Of all Ripley County deaths, 29.5 percent are due to cardiovascular disease. Nationwide, heart disease is the No. 1 killer of Americans, responsible for one in three deaths.

  • Bob Myers addresses Kevin Durant leaving Warriors for Nets

    first_imgKevin Durant “wanted to try something different,” according to Warriors president of basketball operations Bob Myers.The 30-year-old forward left Golden State after three seasons and signed with the Nets this summer. Myers was asked about Durant’s decision when he met with reporters Monday. “The one thing I’d share is, he just felt like, it was something inside of him, in his heart, that he wanted to try something different,” Myers said, via 95.7 The Game. “Nothing wrong with that. I’m at peace about it, personally, I hope our fans are, too. He was one of the best athletes to come through our city, certainly this organization.”Durant won two titles and two Finals MVPs during his time with the Warriors. He averaged 26.0 points and 6.4 rebounds last season but ruptured his Achilles in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Raptors. He’s expected to miss most, if not all, of 2019-20.

I think for him, it was just a new chapter.”“He just felt in his heart that he wanted to try something different.”Bob on why Durant decided to leave. pic.twitter.com/DfmZbi0BeF— 95.7 The Game (@957thegame) July 15, 2019Warriors co-chairman and CEO Joe Lacob announced earlier this month the team was effectively retiring Durant’s jersey.”Three years ago, we were thrilled with the arrival of Kevin Durant,” Lacob said in a statement. “He provided our fans and franchise with numerous highlights during his stay here … and carried himself with class and dignity both on and off the court.

Went to see Cousin Denny play his last home game at Shadyside Academy in Fox Chapel (more on that in a minute), Shadyside vs. Kittanning, for the conference title. Not just any game, but for the conference title. Now, I don’t have time or space to give you the total story from start to finish, but I’ll tell you three things, and I swear I’m not just calling “foul” because Denny’s my cousin. It was a great tough, hard fought game, by two good teams, going back and forth. A game that should have been decided by the players not the whistle.1.—A Shadyside kickoff late in the game that was clearly touched by Kittanning and should have resulted in a SSA touchdown…not called!2.—Later in the game, Kittanning scores on a touchdown pass only because the receiver pushed the D-Back off. Now listen folks, I am not talking a touch and push, I am talking a MMA push off that Stevie Wonder could see! And last and most certainly not least…3.—SSA behind the hard running of Briggs, who was determined to set the record straight after giving up a fumble in the previous series, scores a touchdown and is ready to tie the game at 28. The official hits SSA with a celebration penalty in the end zone and assesses the yardage on the extra point, not the upcoming kick-off. SSA missed the now too long extra point and they lose by one. The penalty should have never been called and I have never, never, never, never…(wait on it) never ever seen such a thing. Just a terrible call. Shadyside Academy, you got “homered” at home!!!:09 Penn State, I love ya, but do yourself a favor and stay out of Ohio State territory. C’mon 63-14, Lions you gotta roar louder than that!:08 No, I am not in my spot for the game. The Steelers are in Oakland man! I would be the only one at the stadium. I am, however, at my back-up spot and no you can’t find me here either, but I can be anywhere and make this call. The Steelers win by three in Oakland. In so doing, let’s let hometown hero Terrelle Pryor have a good game in the loss. I’m just saying!:07 Back at ya regarding the heads up I gave you with ten seconds on the clock. And this is a compliment to Shadyside Academy, not a knock…but if you ever want to see why some kids just seem to do better when they go to college than others, you only need to visit “SSA” and other such campuses, and you will clearly see why. The high school digs that some kids are privileged to attend are almost better than some college campuses.:06 Here is a shout out to some new readers coming into “The Locker Room.” First of all, the “Snipes Sisters” are now in, but they’re no strangers to how we roll. They go back with the Champions all the way to the Connie Hawkins League in East Hills. I saw the ladies at my cousin Lavern’s birthday party and they all look good…I mean really good!:05 And here’s a rare, but every now and then, double shout out to another loyal reader, Ms. Eleanor Carter. I saw the ageless wonder down at Savoy getting her swerve on the other night. (She says she’s President Jimmy Carter’s niece, but she’s Black and he’s White and I am a little confused about it. Hey, it’s a new day. Who am I to say?!?!):04 Hey Boston Red Sox, if your man was interfering with the runner for St. Louis heading for home plate, so be it. Your “bad call” wasn’t as bad a call as the “bad call” at Shadyside Academy!:03 Okay, here’s this. Just in case these knuckleheads can’t beat the also pitiful Raiders, if the long distance is a problem, why not go to the West Coast two days early and get resettled? I’m just askin’!:02 Hats off to your current National Old Timer Basketball League Champions, the Pittsburgh Old Timers, led by Tom “Bum” Coates. They took a close one from the Allegheny Old Timers (the other Pittsburgh team) in the season opener. Can you say re-peat!:01 Set your calendar for the 38th Annual Willie Stargell Pittsburgh MVP Awards Banquet coming Saturday, Dec. 7 at 6 p.m., starring keynote speaker Federal Court Judge Reggie Walton, the highly acclaimed presidential appointed Judge who hails from Donora, Pa., is coming home to be a part of the longest running awards banquet in Western Pa. history.
