From marsh to Yard

first_imgIt’s been a bittersweet Thanksgiving week for students and archaeologists digging in Harvard Yard.Sweet because they found a major feature — a covered stone drainage ditch buried four and a half feet down that was likely an early step in transforming what was a low, wet, marshy place to the high and dry Yard of today.Bitter because the find, thought to date to the 1700s, came just days before the end of the autumn digging season, when Harvard’s landscaping crew fills in the pit until the dig resumes again nearly two years from now.“There’s a certain pain that comes with this profession,” instructor Christina Hodge said, looking thoughtfully into the 9-by-12-foot pit that students had dug over the last four and a half months. “There are a lot of challenges with archaeology.”The dig is in a corner of Harvard Yard near Matthews Hall. It has been excavated by students enrolled in “The Archaeology of Harvard Yard,” which is taught by specialists from the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology every other year.Summer School students began the dig in late June and handed off their trowels in September to Harvard College students, who ended their work Monday. Many of the students who dug this fall will assemble inside for a spring term laboratory course, where they will clean, examine, research, and catalog their finds.When the course was last held in 2009, the final days of digging offered a similar find, a foundation trench that likely belonged to the Indian College, one of Harvard’s original buildings that housed the first Native American students and a printing press that produced North America’s first Bible.Even before discovering the culvert, this year’s students had made some interesting finds, including coins possibly dating to the 1690s, a spoon from the 17th century, and a shoe buckle from the 18th century.Late last week, the diggers uncovered what looked superficially like a stone path, two and a half feet wide and 9 to 10 feet long. It was made of large pieces of Cambridge mudstone, a common building material that Hodge said was once quarried at the site of the present-day Fogg Art Museum. Voids between the stones indicated that the diggers had uncovered the top of a hollow structure. A measurement through one of the voids indicated a depth of 40 centimeters.With landscaping crews scheduled to fill in the dig today, a crew of three continued working Monday, carefully documenting each stone before removing some to see what was underneath.They found a ditch lined with stones on each side and on top, with the bottom made of soil.Hodge and fellow instructor Patricia Capone said the Yard was originally much wetter than it is today. Early accounts by Harvard officials spoke of buildings deteriorating badly, which could have been due to excessive moisture.“It’s pretty exciting … that you can excavate in Harvard Yard and find something that significant and that far down,” Capone said.Junior Emily Mayer, a history concentrator who missed the day when the stones were first uncovered, was working Monday, happy to have a glimpse of Harvard’s past.“It’s been fantastic. When I was little, I always thought that you’re not going to find anything in your own backyard, but here we are,” Mayer said.As one of their last acts at the site, Capone and Hodge covered the bottom of the pit with a tarp. Landscaping crews will cover that with the nearby piles of dirt dug painstakingly out of the pit over the past few months. The tarp will both protect the culvert and allow students and instructors to quickly dig down to its level when the course is next offered, in 2013.last_img read more

Students react to narrow victory over Navy

first_imgJodi Lo In a game with a much closer final score than many initially predicted, Notre Dame defeated Navy with a final score of 49-39.Irish senior quarterback Everett Golson accounted for a school-record six touchdowns – three passing, three rushing – as the Irish improved their record to 7-1.Senior Connor Stacy said he expected the Midshipmen to play well, but knew the Irish would win.“Navy always plays us tough,” he said. “I was pretty confident that we would pull it out in the end.”Senior Blake Prunsky watched the game from the comfort of his own home as he celebrated his birthday with an Irish win.“I only watched the first, second and fourth quarters, so from what I saw, the Irish played great.” he said. “Everett played like a Heisman-caliber quarterback today, and I’m confident we can win out.”Junior Matt Castellini echoed Prunsky’s sentiment, saying he believed Golson played like a champion yesterday.“He very much deserves to be in the Heisman conversation,” he said. “Big time players make big time plays. That’s what he does.”Senior Dolff Hanke said he wonders if the team’s performance was based on Navy playing well or the Irish letting up against an unranked opponent.“I’m not sure if we sometimes play down to our opponents or it’s simply that we struggle with Navy, but we need to realize that we have the potential to beat any team in the country,” he said.The Irish have a tough schedule ahead, with matchups against ranked Arizona State and a rivalry game with USC.Senior Alysa Kane, who watched the game from home, said she believes the Notre Dame defense may be bringing down the team.“The offense played like a championship-caliber team, but the defense seems to be dragging the team down in recent games,” she said.Junior Connor Brown said he believes the game was somewhat of a snoozer.“I fell asleep during the first half after we went up big,” he said. “I woke up, and we’re losing in the third quarter.”Tags: Everett Golson, football, Midshipmen, Navylast_img read more

Paradiso-O’Connor and Drinkall-Kinyanjui tickets discuss their platform ahead of election

first_imgIn “Meet the Candidates” videos for the 2020-2021 Student Government Association (SGA) election released to students in an email on Tuesday, the candidates spoke about the goals they hope to achieve if elected. Juniors Deirdre Drinkall and Brianna Kinyanjui — running for student body president and vice president, respectively — and juniors Giavanna Paradiso and Kelsey O’Connor — candidates for the same offices — discussed and outlined their campaign platforms, and why students should vote for them in Thursday’s election.The Paradiso-O’Connor platform has four pillars: empowering students on campus, enthusiasm in their work, equality in making sure all voices are heard and experience in student government. Nola Wallace | The Observer Giavanna Paradiso, left, and Kelsey O’Connor, right, prioritized empowering student organizations and promoting community in their platform.“We want to empower each student to speak up as their true authentic selves, because everyone at this school has a unique and valuable skill set to bring to the table. Both of us feel passionate that the school is what we make,” O’Connor said. “We’d also love to have the opportunity to empower clubs and organizations by offering the help of SGA through resources and services that many students don’t even know exist or know how to access. “On our platform, we mentioned empowering SDB, BAVO and the rest of student-led SMC clubs so that these clubs can serve and enhance the SMC community.”Paradiso emphasized the enthusiasm for the College she and O’Connor share.“One of our favorite hobbies is bragging about how amazing Saint Mary’s is to anyone and everyone we meet. We firmly believe Saint Mary’s is the best institution in the country, and at every event we have the privilege to plan has been a success because we got to witness the SMC community coming together on campus,” Paradiso said. “From watching Belles smile over free t-shirts, glitter, arts and crafts, Chick-fil-a, donuts and other treats, it brings joy to our face that demonstrates the importance of having pride in one’s school. “That’s what drives Kelsey and me — making Belles happy and helping them to feel at home and a part of something. Let us amplify your voices, opinions and stories on our campus and across the street. To be proud of what we’re building in our time on our campus. We are so enthusiastic about the opportunity and privilege to serve you all.”O’Connor said making Saint Mary’s a place where all students feel welcome and valued is an important part of the ticket’s platform.“Saint Mary’s is home for everyone, no matter your race, socioeconomic status, religion, gender, sexual identity, nationality, family background, hometown or beliefs,” O’Connor said. ”Saint Mary’s is your home, and everyone is welcome down the Avenue. We understand Saint Mary’s is not perfect, and we will continue to strive for diversity, inclusion and equality at all levels across campus with the help for each of you. “Each Saint Mary’s experience is different as every Belle has her own story and rather than continue to divide people, we want each Belle to know that she is capable of achieving whatever her dream is here at Saint Mary’s. We want every student to feel safe and part of this community.”The Paradiso-O’Connor ticket builds upon their campaign pillars with additions to their platform such as student wellness, inclusion, safety, opportunities, advocacy and support.Among their ideas for implementing these goals are increasing exterior lighting on campus, restoring Dalloway’s as a space for student use and implementing a tracking app for Blinkie.“We would like to ask you for your vote in [Thursday’s] election because you deserve empowerment, enthusiasm, equality and experience in your leaders and at your school,” Paradiso said.The priorities of the Drinkall-Kinyanjui ticket are to encourage smooth transitions for the new College President and vice president of student affairs with experience and competence. They hope to ensure Saint Mary’s serves the needs of its students and continues to remain true to the core values of the institution.The highlights of the Drinkall-Kinyanjui platform are centered on student services, Catholic identity and ecumenism, mental health, inclusivity and transparency of SGA. Nola Wallace Brianna Kinyanjui, left, and Deirdre Drinkall, right, emphasized the College’s Catholic identity and mental health in their platform.“The mission of student government should be to help each Belle find her voice and speak in through our events, sponsorships and communication to the powers that be,” Drinkall said. “Ensuring that each of us 1,379 Belles has complete access to that promise of discovery — discovering the spirit and sisterhood of SMC.” Kinyanjui said she applied to Saint Mary’s on a whim but has found it to be a home she wishes to serve and improve.“We have discovered the call to serve with authenticity, lead with competence, be outspoken for the sake of our fellow Belles and to become your next student body president and vice president,’’ Kinyanjui said. “I applied to Saint Mary’s on a whim, I never dreamed by choosing to call this place my home I would have been blessed with so many incredible people and countless opportunities.“The College thrives because of the hard-working students that put their time and effort into making it the place that they want it to be. And as long as I have the privilege to attend Saint Mary’s, I will strive to help make it a place every student feels they have a say in their college experience.”Drinkall said she and Kinyanjui plan to combine their different voices in serving the student body and promoting the mission of the College.“The changes we desire are to make Saint Mary’s even more Saint Mary’s,’’ Kinyanjui said. “We are passionate about subjects relating to mental health, Catholic identity, inclusivity and equity, and SGA accessibility.“Our concrete plans include to start empowering conferences, open up new inviting spaces for Saint Mary’s students, start faith-sharing community groups, create new positions for diverse representation on SGA and advocate for increased efforts in sustainability and support of the Belles Against Violence Office.” The Drinkall-Kinyanjui ticket believes student government needs to be more than just fun and uplifting committee events. “We wish to continue these and make them better, but also restructure SGA to make it the place students can go to voice their concerns and share ideas,” Drinkall said. “ … We need to increase SGA’s online presence and transparency. We wish to reintroduce an SGA website and create regular Facebook live events to actively share our activities and host office hours in the dining hall.” Kinyanjui expressed her belief in the ticket’s ability to combine leadership experience with new ideas.“We have firsthand experience for the job, while bringing fresh new ideas of effective leadership,’’ Kinyanjui said. “We have been directly involved with alumnae and prospective students and have the best understanding why Belles past, present and future choose and keep choosing Saint Mary’s. We will lead with vision of all that a Belle can be, and above all, we are women that live and breathe for the Belles of Saint Mary’s.’’Tags: Drinkall-Kinyanjui, Paradiso-O’Connor, Saint Mary’s Student Government Associationlast_img read more

Weekend Pick: Creeking Clinic

first_imgAll the best paddlers know that winter boating is well worth the cold water, if only for one major reason – creeking season! Prepare to join the ranks and clean up your skills this weekend with ACA certified kayak and swift water safety instructor Dave Kessmann at his Creeking Clinic this Saturday, January 17, on the Maury River. Dave KessmanDave Kessmann is an American Canoe Association (ACA) certified instructor in both Kayaking and Swift Water Rescue. With more than ten years of paddlesports education, he now bases his work out of Lynchburg, Va., and offers courses all throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.This particular course will focus on the skills and safety measures involved in intermediate and advanced creekboating. The Goshen Pass piece of the Maury River is a classic run for local boaters, and features some of the best Class III and IV creeking in the region. Kessmann will lead boaters down the relatively short 5-mile section, stopping often to share his insights on the surrounding water features and to teach important creeking lessons – including boofing, paddle technique, eddy-catching, scouting, and refined boat control. However, the quality of kayaking on Goshen Pass depends entirely on the water level of the river from rainfall and snowmelt. If Kessmann determines the pass to be unrunnable, he will move the class to the Upper Meadow River in West Virginia, another Class III-IV creeking option.Interested paddlers should contact Kessman via his Facebook page or email at [email protected] for more information and to register for the course. Everyone will need all of their own whitewater equipment and should prepare for cold temperatures with proper layers and drygear. This is not a beginner course, so be prepared for a fun but challenging event! A day on the river with Dave Kessmann will not only leave you exhausted and smiling, but also full to the brim with unmatched creeking experiences and skills for your whitewater future.last_img read more
