By Tommie Lee – April 7, 2021 4 287 Notre Dame to require COVID vaccines for all students in the fall WhatsApp Pinterest (Tommie Lee/MNC) The University of Notre Dame says all students will be required to have the COVID-19 vaccine for the fall semester.From the University of Notre Dame:The University of Notre Dame will require all students — undergraduate, graduate and professional — returning to campus for the fall 2021 semester to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the University’s executive officers — President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., Charles and Jill Fischer Provost Marie Lynn Miranda and Executive Vice President Shannon Cullinan — wrote in a letter sent today to the campus community. The University will accommodate documented medical or religious exemptions.“The safety of the University and local communities is always our highest priority,” Father Jenkins said. “Requiring students to be vaccinated for COVID-19 is a new and important addition to our health policies, one that we believe will enhance public health at Notre Dame and in our community, while also contributing to our ability to return to a more vibrant campus environment.”The announcement comes in advance of the University opening a clinic Thursday (April 8) with the Pfizer-BioNTech two-dose vaccine, making it especially easy for current students to meet the vaccine requirement.The vaccination clinic will use the Compton Family Ice Arena and will administer first doses from April 8 to 15, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Second doses will be administered from April 29 to May 6.In their letter, the executive officers encouraged students to be vaccinated at the on-campus clinic in the days and weeks ahead. They indicated that officials with the Indiana Department of Health have assured the University that there will be ample supply to fully inoculate the student body and any faculty and staff who have not yet been vaccinated.The University’s leaders also encouraged anyone on campus who has been vaccinated to register their status through an online tool.The University currently requires enrolled students to be immunized for hepatitis B, meningitis, measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus and chicken pox, and last fall required all students to receive the flu vaccine, again with medical and religious exemptions.

Colin Brace, chairman of Newport-based Brace’s Bakery, has passed away after a short illness, aged 96 years.His son, Mark Brace, who runs the bakery alongside brother Jonathan, told British Baker he was widely respected throughout the industry.Colin Brace, who was the grandson of the founder of the bakery, George, has worked for the business since 1946 during the end of the Second World War.Colin Brace enlisted into the army before joining the family business and carried on working up until last week when he fell ill.“He will be sorely missed by us all,” said Brace’s Bakery. “We saw Colin last Thursday (8 February) at the bakery when he came to work, as he did most days.”Some of his highlights during his life included receiving an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2013 for his services to the baking industry and to the community in Wales.Tributes poured in through social media following the announcement of Brace’s death, describing the chairman as a “momentous man with pride and integrity” and “a massive loss to Brace’s family and friends”.
On Wednesday night, October 25th, folk rock favorites The Avett Brothers made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers to play a new song, “Roses and Sacrifice”. According to a post on the Avett’s Facebook, the performance on Late Night marked the group’s 25th late-night TV spot.The band has played the song live a number of times since debuting it at Red Rocks last year, but it has yet to appear on any official releases. While the band hasn’t released a new album since 2016’s True Sadness, the introduction of this down-home ditty to a national audience seems to (hopefully) portend a new set of songs from the Avett Brothers in the near future. Check out the video below:The Avett Brothers – “Roses and Sacrifice”[Video: Late Night with Seth Meyers]The Avett Brothers’ appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers came on the same day the band announced their 2019 return to Red Rocks in Morrison, CO, continuing a years-long tradition of multi-night runs at the storied natural amphitheatre. The three-night run is set to take place from Friday, July 5th through Sunday, July 7th. Supporting acts for the first two nights of the run have yet to be announced, but the Avett Brothers have confirmed that Lake Street Dive—who made their own Red Rocks headlining debut earlier this year—will open the festivities on July 7th, the run’s final night.On Tuesday, The Avett Brothers were also included in the initial lineup announcement for the 2019 edition of SweetWater 420 Fest, set to take place from Friday, April 19th through Sunday, April 21st, 2019 at Centennial Olympic Park in the heart of Atlanta, GA.This week, The Avett Brothers are preparing for a sold-out, three-night run at Port Chester’s historic rock palace, The Capitol Theatre, set to take place from Thursday, October 5th through Saturday, October 7th.

The president of the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) today (May 26) announced the results of the annual election of new members of the Harvard Board of Overseers.

The five newly elected Overseers are introduced here:Flavia B. de Almeida (São Paulo, Brazil) is a partner in Monitor Group, an international consulting firm, and head of its São Paulo office, where she specializes in corporate strategy and governance. After undergraduate studies at the Fundação Getúlio Vargas, she received her M.B.A. from Harvard Business School in 1994.Richard W.

Raised in Mexico, he is a 1971 graduate of Harvard College. He studied at Oxford, then received his M.B.A. from Stanford in 1975. Verna C. Gibbs (San Francisco) is professor of clinical surgery at the University of California, San Francisco, a surgeon at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and an expert on operating-room safety practices.

Sometimes we venture out into nature to find solitude. To simply reflect on its beauty. To escape from noise, traffic and the constant interruptions from modern technology. Other times we feel the need to be surrounded by friends and family, though preferring a more scenic venue than our living rooms. Fortunately, there is a stretch of the Upper James River Water Trail for each of these experiences and plenty of others in between. Some river users prefer the sound of laughter instead songbirds. Paddling with a group of friends or family members is a great way to make memories and introduce kids to the beauty of nature. Scouts, church groups, family reunions and other gatherings flock to the Upper James for a leisurely float in kayaks, canoes and especially tubes. Photos courtesy of Upper James River Water Trail. The James River begins where the Jackson and Cowpasture Rivers merge near the town of Iron Gate. Overall, it’s a popular river for paddlers but as it meanders through northern Botetourt County, there are remote and rugged stretches where it’s quiet enough to hear leaves rustling in the breeze and birds calling to one another. The 13-mile stretch downriver from the Eagle Rock public access point is perhaps the least paddled section. This picturesque portion of the river offers a few rapids and stunning scenery. The Town of Buchanan is often thought of as a hub of activity on the James. If you start your journey there, within minutes of leaving the town limits you’ll find another stretch of river that feels remote and peaceful. Further downriver where the James flows into Rockbridge County, the stretch between Alpine and Glasgow features a seven mile stretch with virtually no signs of civilization. The Upper James River Water Trail is made up of approximately 64 miles of the James River in Botetourt and Rockbridge Counties plus about 10 miles of the Maury River, which merges into the James in the Town of Glasgow. If you assumed that roughly 74 miles of river offers a wide variety of sites, terrain and challenges, you’d be right. Photos courtesy of Upper James River Water Trail. The stretch from Springwood to Buchanan is especially popular with groups. When the river is at normal water level, it’s a relaxing and fun float. It’s roughly five miles and ends at a big sandy public access point in Buchanan where there is plenty of parking and some nice places to grab a meal and a cold drink. Social or solitary, there is a place for you on the Upper James River Water Trail. There are outfitters and guides ready to give you expert advice and offer a shuttle service so you can enjoy your ideal day on the James River. Plan your visit at www.upperjamesriverwatertrail.com
