The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study announced today that former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will receive the prestigious Radcliffe Medal on May 25 during Harvard’s Commencement week.Awarded on Radcliffe Day, the annual gathering to celebrate the institute’s commitment to excellence and inquiry, the medal honors individuals whose lives and work have had a transformative impact on society.Radcliffe Dean Lizabeth Cohen called Clinton a “champion for human rights” and for the welfare of all, a “skilled legislator,” and “an advocate of American leadership to create a world in which states live up to their responsibilities.”A former first lady, Clinton served as a U.S. senator from New York from 2001 to 2009 before taking over as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013. She was the Democratic Party’s nominee for president in 2016, the first woman candidate for that office from a major political party.“Hillary Clinton’s life and career are an inspiration to people around the world,” said Cohen, who is also the Howard Mumford Jones Professor of American Studies in Harvard’s Department of History. “We commend Secretary Clinton for her accomplishments in the public sphere as a champion for human rights and the welfare of all, as a skilled legislator, and as an advocate of American leadership to create a world in which states — to quote Secretary Clinton — ‘have clear incentives to cooperate and live up to their responsibilities, as well as strong disincentives to … sow discord and division.’ We salute her commitment to a life of public service and the resilience it takes to live and work in the public eye.”“Whether in Arkansas, Washington, D.C., New York state, or traveling around the globe as secretary of state,” Cohen said, “Secretary Clinton has provided a model of what it takes to transform society, often under scrutiny: tireless effort, toughness amid the political fray, and an enduring capacity to envision a better future.”Previous medalists include U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, former U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole, and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Prominent Civil Rights leader and congressman will address Afternoon Program Related Radcliffe Day will feature a tribute to Clinton from Albright, a global affairs trailblazer, followed by a wide-ranging keynote conversation between Clinton and Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey ’92.The day’s program will open with a panel titled “Toward a New Global Architecture? America’s Role in a Changing World.” In 2009, Clinton outlined a vision for a global architecture with both incentives to cooperate and disincentives to cause friction. Nearly a decade later, the U.S. is still grappling with complex questions about its role in global affairs. Nicholas Burns, the Roy and Barbara Goodman Family Professor of the Practice of Diplomacy and International Relations at Harvard Kennedy School and a former U.S. ambassador to NATO and undersecretary of state for political affairs, will moderate a discussion exploring these issues with the foreign-policy experts Michèle Flournoy, David Ignatius, Meghan O’Sullivan, and Anne-Marie Slaughter.The Radcliffe Institute is dedicated to creating and sharing transformative ideas across all disciplines. Each year, the Institute hosts 50 leading scholars, scientists, and artists from around the world in its residential fellowship program. Radcliffe fosters innovative research collaborations and offers hundreds of public lectures, exhibitions, performances, conferences, and other events annually.The institute also is home to the Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library, the nation’s foremost archive on the history of women, gender, and sexuality.

Dear Doc: Does raw sushi ever contain parasites?–Vanessa, Greenville, N.C. The short answer is yes.In the wild, human disease-causing parasites are more commonly found in saltwater fish than freshwater fish. Other aquatic animals such as snails, frogs, and snakes also contain parasites.Now, this fact does not stop me from hungering for my favorite sushi roll as I write this post. Sushi served in the U.S. very rarely contains any live parasites (notice I said live). All intended-to-eat raw seafood in the U.S. is flash frozen for a set time, killing potential human-disease causing parasites.Note to home-made sushi makers: non-commercial freezers do not freeze raw meats or seafood fast enough to ensure all parasites are killed.Also, seafood at a local grocery store is not frozen to the same standards as that of seafood used in sushi restaurants.For those who crave sushi while traveling outside the country, keep in mind that other countries may not follow similar U.S. food standards.–Dr. Sean Cook is a physician and outdoor enthusiast from Georgia.
Cantero to work with Professionalism Commission October 1, 2002 Regular News After two weeks on the job, Justice Raoul G. Cantero has received his first management assignment from Chief Justice Harry Lee Anstead: serving as the court’s liaison to its Commission on Professionalism. The commission was created in 1996 to promote the highest levels of integrity among lawyers, and Anstead served as its founding chair.Anstead also named Second Judicial Circuit Judge Terry Lewis and Fourth District Court of Appeal Judge Martha Warner as co-chairs of the Florida Court Education Council, which oversees Florida’s pro-gram of continuing education for judges.“It’s a great honor,” said Cantero, “to be named liaison to the Commission by the same judge who is recognized as the father of legal professionalism in Florida. Chief Justice Anstead made Flo-rida’s professionalism program a national model, and I will do everything I can to continue the work he began.”As liaison Cantero will work closely with The Florida Bar’s Center for Professionalism, which was created in 1996 by then-Chief Justice Gerald Kogan based on recommendations of a Bar committee chaired by Anstead. Anstead had worked closely in 1996 with then-Bar President John W. Frost, who dedicated his presidency to the cause of legal professionalism.The professionalism movement grew out of studies by the American Bar Association and The Florida Bar showing that lawyers and the public increasingly have viewed the legal profession less favorably. The movement encourages attorneys to do far more than meet minimum standards of pro-fessional conduct set by rules of court and ethical requirements.Cantero practiced law in Miami from 1988 until his appointment to the Supreme Court by Gov. Jeb Bush on July 10. The Harvard-educated lawyer concentrated in appellate work and was head of the appellate department of the firm of Adorno & Yoss when the governor elevated him to the state’s highest court. Cantero received his undergraduate degree from Florida State University.On the Court Education Council, Judges Lewis and Warner replace retired Justice Major B. Harding, who praised both for their commitment to judicial education.“Judge Warner and Judge Lewis have both exhibited a passion for excellence,” said Harding, “and both have extensive experience serving on the faculty and helping oversee the Judicial College. They are well equipped to continue the ongoing oversight of what many view as the premier state judicial education program in the nation today.”Judge Warner attended Colorado College and the University of Florida law school and has been on the Fourth District Court since 1989, serving as its chief judge from 1999 to 2001. Be-fore her appointment to the appellate bench, she served as a judge of the 19th Judicial Circuit and was in private practice from 1974 to 1985.Judge Lewis received his undergraduate and law degrees from Florida State University. He practiced law from 1976 until he was elected to the Leon County Court in 1988. In 1998, Gov. Lawton Chiles named him to the Second Judicial Circuit Court.

USC held off a late push by Arizona to defeat the Wildcats 24-20 on Saturday in Tucson. The victory extended the Trojans’ record to 3-2 overall and 2-1 in the Pac-12. The Trojans had a 24-0 lead, but Arizona reeled off 20 consecutive points to draw closer in the fourth quarter. After a touchdown with under two minutes drew the Wildcats within four points, USC recovered an onside kick to close out the game.Freshman quarterback JT Daniels was 16-of-24 passing for 197 yards, while Arizona’s sophomore quarterback Khalil Tate’s was 16-of-33 passing for 232 yards. Penalties once again plagued the Trojans as the team committed 18 penalties totalling 169 yards.“There was a lot of yellow on both sides from both teams,” head coach Clay Helton said. “It was one of those nights. The things that I’m going to point out to the team are some of the decision-making things. USC’s first score came at the hands of a solid mixture of receivers to spark the passing game. Daniels completed passes to three different receivers, including a 37-yard pass to sophomore tight end Josh Falo for a total of 80 passing yards on a 12-play, 90-yard drive. The reception was notable as USC does not typically target tight ends offensively.In the first half, the Trojans were successful on key plays, converting three of five third down attempts while holding the Wildcats to just one of four conversions. On the other hand, USC failed to reconcile its preventable penalty issue from the Washington State game. The Trojans were penalized nine times for 95 yards in the first half alone. One of the fouls, a holding call, negated what would have been a large gain for sophomore running back Stephen Carr.Solid defensive pressure led to a turnover in favorable field position for USC. Senior linebacker Porter Gustin’s pressure on junior quarterback Khalil Tate on a play action forced a throw into the hands of senior safety Marvell Tell III. The Trojans were unsuccessful in breaking into the red zone and settled for a career-long 42-yard field goal by redshirt sophomore Michael Brown to extend the Trojans lead to 10-0. Perhaps the biggest improvement for the Trojans was the diversification of receiving targets. Daniels had five receptions to freshman receiver Amon-Ra St.Brown for 54 yards, two receptions each to Jones Jr. and Vaughns for 22 and 23 yards, respectively. This marked a stark contrast to past games in which Daniels focused on one receiver, usually St. Brown, for the bulk of targets. The offense also experimented more with plays towards the tight ends, which aided in the offense’s passing success. “I think [getting comfortable with more receivers] is a big positive for us,” Daniels said. “We’re getting better and better throwing the ball.” Aca’Cedric Ware sprints in for a touchdown – Emily Smith | Daily TrojanThe second half kept the ball rolling for the Trojans. On its first drive of the second half, USC extended its lead to 24-0 via a 69-yard rushing touchdown at the hands of senior running back Aca’Cedric Ware. He ran for 176 yards on 21 carries for two touchdowns on the night. “The o-line did their thing,” Ware said. “They opened up holes and I just ran through them.” The Wildcats’ first score came in the third quarter, and it was Tate’s first showing of the game. He led his team 84 yards in seven plays for a touchdown to narrow the Trojans’ lead to 24-7. The Wildcats’ next scoring drive didn’t come until midway through the fourth quarter. Following a turnover via a fumble by Daniels, Arizona found the end zone on its first play with a 32-yard completion to redshirt junior receiver Cedric Peterson. Arizona’s last drive ended with its third and final touchdown of the night late in the fourth after taking multiple stabs at the end zone from the red zone at the goal line. The Wildcats narrowed the Trojans lead to 24-20, which proved to be the final score.Heading into the bye week, there is a sense of urgency among the team to improve on the team’s recurring flaws.“Helton came up to me after and said ‘We really gotta go. These next two weeks are big for us,’” senior linebacker Cam Smith said,. “And I said ‘Hey coach, we’ve gotta have a sense of urgency.’ And that’s what we’ve been communicating a lot about and we’re all working together. These don’t feel great, but at the end it’s a win and I’m happy we have it.” Following the week off, USC will welcome Colorado to the Coliseum on Oct. 13.
