It takes hard work and dedication to graduate at the top of your high school class — whether you end up in the top 10 among 90 classmates or the top 35 among 350. Today we salute the hundreds of students who accomplished that rank in St. Paul and other east metro schools. This annual project invites schools to send us a list of their “Top Graduates,” however they define them. Some schools designate the traditional valedictorian and salutatorian, others define a Top 10, and some recognize a long list of students who have achieved honors status. Our 2019 compilation shows students headed to colleges from coast to coast — from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, to the University of California Berkeley. As college majors, STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) is strong. Some 80 students featured will major in a bioscience field; another 80 in an engineering discipline; three dozen in computer science. Other graduates are joining the U.S. military or … [Read more...] about Top graduates 2019: When their hard work meets the future
When breath becomes air quotes
Carmona laments condition of Beetham, Sea Lots IT has become almost impossible to take a breath of fresh air in TT, said former president Justice Anthony Thomas Aquinas Carmona, who called on people to rid the earth of the blight of air pollution in all its forms. "How is it we have allowed the citizenry of the Beetham and Sea Lots to breathe such carcinogenic air year after year? We have been asleep at the gates of environmental protection. In urbanised communities, clean air is becoming a diminishing commodity, a feature of the past and a stark reminder of generational irresponsibility," he said yesterday. Carmona was the feature speaker at the launch the Carbon Zero Initiative of TT (CZITT) 1,000 trees challenge at Chaguanas Borough Corporation. It is a collaborative effort of the Felicity Environmental Conservation Organisation (FECO), the High Commission of India and CZITT, an NGO.

Cosmo Landesman 3 February 2018 9:00 AM 3 February 2018 9:00 AM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp These are tough times for what I call the #MeToo Men — those white, liberal, high-minded men who pride themselves on being good feminists. Disgusted with Trump and horrified by Harvey, they want to show solidarity and be good allies to the women of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. So they wear their feminist hearts on their sleeves and their Time’s Up pins in their lapels — and they wear them with pride. But pride comes before the fall, especially if you try to parade your feminist credentials in public. Just ask actor James Franco and comedian Aziz Ansari. After appearing at the recent Golden Globe awards, both of these #MeToo Men were spotted sporting Time’s Up pins and ended up being denounced for sexual misconduct. Poor Franco. He faces the ultimate humiliation for a #MeToo Man — Scarlett Johansson wants … [Read more...] about Can I be taught how to become a #MeToo Man?
