RAN, Japanese officials mark sinking of HMAS Kuttabul

Nevertheless, the loss remains a poignant episode, because it is our loss and our story,” Captain Martin said.

Press release: British Embassy Tallinn celebrating 100 years of friendship between the UK and Estonia

first_imgOn 10 January British Ambassador to Estonia Theresa Bubbear announced the launch of a series of events that the British Embassy will hold throughout 2018 to celebrate the Estonian Centenary and 100 years of friendship between our two countries. These will include “Pop up Embassy” visits to each of Estonia’s 15 counties; an online exhibition on the Royal Navy’s support during Estonia’s War of Independence and a competition for school children to win invitations to this year’s Queen’s Birthday Party.British Ambassador Theresa Bubbear said at the launch event: We will always remember the special role of British naval and air forces during the Estonian War of Independence. No country or an individual can survive on its own, the co-operation is everything. It has been like that in the past and in the globalizing world the ties are going to be even stronger between Estonia and the UK. Estonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sven Mikser commented: For more information on “pop-up embassies” and other Centenary related activities of the British Embassy please follow the Embassy on social media at British Embassy Tallinn on Facebook and @UKinEstonia on TwitterAn online exhibition on the Royal Navy’s support during Estonia’s War of Independence is being created in collaboration with Estonian Maritime Museum, Estonian National Archive and Estonian National Library and will be located at www.UKandEstonia.ee. The Maritime Museum will be hosting a sister exhibition at Sea Plane Harbour in autumn. I am delighted that the Embassy can play a part in celebrating the Estonian centenary and I do hope that many people can take part in our events to learn more about the UK and the long-lasting friendship between our countries. We are celebrating 100 years of friendship, but also looking ahead at the next 100 years.last_img read more

‘Pathway to public service’

first_imgLexi Smith ’18 is this year’s Harvard Presidential City of Boston Fellow, marking the third fellowship since the program debuted in 2016.Smith, from Atlanta, is an environmental science and public policy major at Harvard. She said she always knew that she wanted to be involved in environmental issues.“My dad is a veterinarian, and when I was growing up we raised a lot of wildlife, many of which had been affected by human interventions in the environment. I think that made me care about how much humans can — and do — affect our environment, and what the consequences of that can be,” said Smith, who works Boston City Hall.Smith said she first became interested in the Presidential Fellow program after learning about the opportunity through Harvard’s Public Service Recruiting Day, held on campus every fall.“The Harvard Presidential City of Boston Fellowship creates significant pathways to public service for recent undergraduates. It exemplifies the deep and meaningful partnership that exists between Harvard and the city of Boston, and it underscores the University’s commitment to public service,” said Harvard President Larry Bacow.Smith said she wanted to serve at the city level because that’s where she sees tangible action.“There’s not much going on at the federal level on environmental issues right now,” she said. “I think a lot of environmentally minded people are choosing to work at the municipal level, and that cities are stepping up to maintain climate leadership in the U.S. Boston signed on to the Paris Climate agreement, and a lot of other cities have, too. We’re working together to stay committed to the ideals we previously affirmed as a country.”,The Harvard Presidential City of Boston Fellowship program continues to encourage Harvard students to make a difference through public service. It also creates a pipeline to civic-oriented career-development opportunities in hopes that more recent graduates will gain a deep understanding and passion for public service, and will continue to serve in similar capacities throughout their careers.Smith works on various projects at City Hall, and is part of the group writing the city’s Climate Action Plan Update, which implements the mayor’s goal of citywide carbon neutrality by 2050. She’s also helping with municipal aggregation — a means by which the city negotiates with third-party suppliers to give Boston residents more access to renewable energy.She’s part of a team working on the Family Led Stability Pilot, which aims to house homeless Boston Public School families and provide them with integrated public services. She’s also working with the the Boston Advisory Council on Ending Homelessness, through which currently or formerly homeless individuals advise the city on issues such as shelter policy.Smith, who will serve in the position through next summer, says one of the thing she likes most about it is its flexibility. “I came in with a certain set of interests,” she said, “but I think no matter what your background is, you could find city projects that would be of interest to you.”Harvard and the city of Boston recently agreed that the pilot program, now in its third year, will be extended for an additional three years.“I am thrilled that the fellowship will continue for an additional three years, and I am confident that Lexi and her successors will contribute to our city, our community, and our society in meaningful ways,” said Bacow. “Harvard students and alumni are eager to put their knowledge to work, and helping them advance the public good is one of my priorities — and a worthy goal that can be shared by colleges and universities not just here in Massachusetts but across the country.”“The Harvard Presidential City of Boston Fellows are important contributors to the work we do here in the city,” said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “The city has benefited tremendously in the three years of the program, while the fellows gain experience shaping and informing important city programs and policies. I look forward to continuing this program in partnership with Harvard.”Harvard has a long history of a robust commitment to public service. Smith credits, among other things, her work at the Phillips Brooks House for helping her land the fellowship.“I was very involved with the Phillips Brooks House when I was at Harvard, and many of the programs that I participated in helped prepare me for this job. I led the Environmental Action Committee, which introduced me to the activist and nonprofit environmental communities in Boston and Cambridge,” she said.“I also participated in the civics program, which gave me a great introduction to the city. I was teaching civics to fifth- and eighth-graders in Boston and Cambridge Public Schools so I got to know a lot of different neighborhoods that way — I think that community-based knowledge was instrumental as I was applying for the job.”The program provides funding for a recent Harvard College graduate to spend one year working as the mayor of Boston’s public-service fellow. The full-time position reports directly to the mayor’s chief of staff and is responsible for managing and executing projects in various issue areas. The fellow also works closely with city officials, cabinet chiefs, and department heads to design a wide variety of policy initiatives, and engages city residents through a range of community-based efforts.Students interested in learning more about public service opportunities can attend the Office of Career Services’ Nonprofit, Government and Global Health Fair on Thursday and the Harvard College Class of 2019 Public Service Recruiting Day on Friday. More information can be found on the Office of Career Services’ website.last_img read more

College announces change to commencement attire policy

first_imgPresident Jan Cervelli announced a change to the Commencement stole policy Tuesday. The revised policy will begin with the 2018 Commencement, according to a press release. Previously, the College allowed graduates to wear honors cords and medals at Commencement but did not allow stoles to be worn at the ceremony. Stoles, honors cords and medals were all allowed at the Baccalaureate Mass and Honors Convocation, however. The previous policy only allowed exceptions recommended by an academic department with approval from the President. This revision to the permitted attire for the commencement ceremony will allow for approved stoles to be worn at graduation, according to the release. Several members of the class of 2018 presented letters to President Cervelli requesting a change to the policy. “I was moved by thoughtful letters from members of the class of 2018 saying that stoles represent the community they’ve found during their years at Saint Mary’s,” President Jan Cervelli said in the release. “They have shown themselves to be Women of Action in this effort, as well as in their involvement with the groups that have meant so much to them as students. Symbols of those experiences deserve to be worn during Commencement.”The Office of Student Affairs will be responsible for approving graduation stoles if a student desires to wear a stole that is not on the list of approved stoles.According to the release, organizations with approved stoles are the education department, multiethnic clubs and organizations, Notre Dame band and STEM programs.
