The secret lives of boys

first_imgHarvard alumna Niobe Way sharpened the debate around the emotional capacities of boys and girls with an intimate look at teen relationships during a Harvard discussion on April 14.In a talk at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, the author shared insights from her work in teenage development and read aloud early and middle adolescent boys’ descriptions of their friendships.“Sometimes you just need to spill your heart out to somebody,” said one 15-year-old boy.“My best friend and I love each other. That’s it. You have this thing that is deep, so deep within you, you can’t explain it,” said another.One young teen said that, “Without friends you would go crazy or mad, you’d be lonely all the time, be depressed — you would go wacko.”Describing his close friends one high school sophomore said, “You could tell them anything; you could give them anything. It’s like giving yourself to them.”Way remarked on how the language was almost marital in nature, noting that terms like “love” and “through thick and thin” fill the interviews she compiled during more than two decades of research.A professor of applied psychology at New York University, Way, Ed.D.’94, has worked with teens for more than 20 years, conducting hundreds of interviews with boys from 11 to 18. More than 85 percent of her respondents, said Way, suggested their closest friends, especially those during early and middle adolescence, “share the plot of ‘Love Story’ more than the plot of ‘Lord of the Flies.’”The interviews confirmed the emotional capacity of boys, said Way, whose new book,  “Deep Secrets: Boys’ Friendships and the Crisis of Connection,” sheds light on the intimate nature of young male friendships. The work also examines how those bonds are severed as boys approach adulthood.According to Way, secret sharing or intimate talk defines a best friend for most boys. When asked why such friendships faded as they aged, the teens listed girlfriends, busy school and work schedules, and a need to change schools or move as the main reasons. But Way says that it has much more to do with ingrained societal norms.They become, she said, “increasingly attuned to cultural messages about manhood and maturity.”“Rather than focusing on who they are,” Way added, “they become obsessed with who they are not.”Despite the countless studies that indicate close friends are good for a person’s emotional and physical well-being, boys feel pressure to show their independence and emotional stoicism, said Way.“You need someone to turn to when things are bad,” one freshman studied by Way said about the importance of close male friends. Three years later, when asked the same question he responded that, “While he has nothing against gay people, he himself is not gay,” said Way, adding that this teen, like many others, expressed sadness at losing close male bonds.Cultural conventions about masculinity are one part of the problem. Another is that people have become increasingly less connected and less empathetic over the past 40 to 50 years. Recent surveys reveal that half the U.S. population discusses important matters with only one other person, or with no one at all.“We as adults in American culture appear to be facing a crisis of connection and boys entering manhood appear to be facing a similar crisis reflecting, most likely, this larger crisis.”last_img read more

Junior Parents Weekend allows students to introduce their family to the Notre Dame community

first_imgThis past weekend, parents of Notre Dame juniors flooded campus for Junior Parents Weekend (JPW), a deep-rooted tradition in the Notre Dame community that has taken place annually ever since the first “Parent-Son Day” was held in 1953.The weekend kicked off with a gala Friday night in the Duncan Student Center, which featured music, food, dancing, cash bars and opportunities for photographs and caricature drawings. Saturday’s events included academic programs, Mass and the President’s dinner. The weekend concluded with a brunch Sunday in the Dahnke Ballroom. Sophia Lauber | The Observer Juniors and their parents eat at a brunch Sunday, which culminated the Junior Parents Weekend festivities.This year was the second year that the Duncan Student Center was available for use for the event, so, while JPW executive chair junior Eric Kim said that the committee followed a lot of precedents established last year, there were also a few changes made to the gala — the biggest of these changes being the decision to expand the opening gala to Corbett Family Hall.“I believe that student activities and division of student affairs will do this again,” Kim said. “It definitely eased the traffic that Duncan had last year and improved the crowd control.”Another notable change was the addition of more cash bars at the gala, a development that was implemented in response to complaints about the lengths of lines from last year.With the improved flow of crowds, Friday night went smoothly, except for a small incident with an elevator that got stuck. Kim said while he did not know the details of what happened, he saw a large group of people exiting the elevator shouting with excitement.“Someone told me they were stuck for an hour and 15 minutes or so,” he said.  “It must’ve been claustrophobic. Hopefully they made some good memories.”Overall, Kim said that he believes the weekend is an “opportunity for junior parents to explore our spiritual, academic and social lifestyle here at Notre Dame.”The academic programs that took place Saturday morning gave parents an opportunity to experience their students’ academic lifestyle within the University, especially those in the College of Arts and Letters, junior Shady Girgis said in an email.“I hope the parents that attended the Arts and Letters program got a good idea of what a true liberal arts education at Notre Dame looks like,” Girgis said. “Also, I hope they realize the absolutely open world their children can explore upon graduation with the mentorship and guidance of the incredible faculty we have in the College of Arts and Letters.”Another goal of this year’s committee was to carry on the efforts of last year’s committee to make the weekend’s events affordable for more juniors, Kim said.“Our main goal was to establish more publicity with the Office of Student Enrichment, so in every email that we sent out before tickets sales, we incorporated the idea that financial assistance is available for students that are in need of it and that do want the assistance,” he said.Kim said he believes this year’s committee was successful in increasing the number of students who applied for assistance.Junior Takunda Ushe said he was originally not planning on having his parents attend JPW until his rector reached out to him and encouraged him to look into financial assistance. With the help of the Office of Student Enrichment, Ushe was able to have both his local host mom and his parents from South Africa attend JPW. Ushe said the weekend was a big deal for both him and his parents, who have never been to Notre Dame or the United States before.“I think I navigate between two worlds — my life before Notre Dame and my life at Notre Dame,” Ushe said. “To have those two worlds come together is just like everything coming full circle for me. It still feels surreal. I would never think that I would have my parents walking down in front of the grotto or the main building. It’s just unthinkable.”The weekend offered Ushe and many other junior students the opportunity to share with their parents the aspects of Notre Dame’s community that cannot fully be expressed in words, Ushe said.“No one has told them about the whole educating not just the mind but also the soul — they just saw that for themselves,” Ushe said.Tags: JPW, Junior Parents Weekend, Office of Student Enrichmentlast_img read more

Donna the Buffalo – Silverlined

first_imgMusic festival darlings Donna the Buffalo celebrate their 20th anniversary with their latest offering Silverlined , the band’s seventh studio album to date. Led by founding members, lead guitarist Jeb Puryear and multi-instrumentalist Tara Nevins, DTB doesn’t necessarily break any new musical ground over the course of the album’s 13 tracks.  Instead what they achieve is just another solid collection of countrified, Cajun-flavored, reggae-infused sounds, which have become their musical calling card. While Silverlined doesn’t measure up to the band’s earlier work from the mid to late 1990’s, there’s still plenty of goodies throughout to make long-time fans happy including the album opener “Temporary Misery” (with guest vocalist Claire Lynch), the live favorite “Biggie K”, which is presented here with a smoking horn section, and the album’s title track with a guest vocal appearance by David Hidalgo of Los Lobos.  Here’s to 20 years and counting.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               -Shaun Harveylast_img read more

3 ways to get that promotion you’ve been wanting

He keeps the credit union … Web: Details So, you love your job and the people you work with, but you’re still not satisfied. Maybe you’re wanting more. If you’re looking to move up, here are three ways you can show you’re ready for a big promotion…Make sure your fingerprints are everywhere: This isn’t great advice if you’re robbing a liquor store, but if you’re working on a project with a team of coworkers, show your bosses that you’re not afraid to step up and take ownership of the project.Lift up others: Every member of your team probably won’t be an all-star on their own, but with a little help from others, they can raise their game to the next level. Think about yourself like you’re Lebron James. Sure, you can score 40 points anytime you want, but think about how great it is for the team that you can also dish out 20 assists at will. Helping make your team great is good for everybody and it won’t stay a secret when you’re the one who’s making everyone better.Be honest: If you know what you want, let it be known. Bosses aren’t always mind readers, so sometimes you have to help make them aware of your ambitions. And if your current position isn’t really on a path to a management position, you may need to remind the powers that be that you’re capable of so much more than what you’re currently doing every day.last_img read more

Governor Wolf Applauds Senate for Unanimous Passage of Justice Reinvestment Initiatives Legislation

first_img April 25, 2018 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Governor Wolf Applauds Senate for Unanimous Passage of Justice Reinvestment Initiatives Legislationcenter_img Criminal Justice Reform,  Press Release,  Public Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today applauded and thanked the Senate for unanimous passage of a package of justice reinvestment initiatives, known as JRI 2, introduced by Senator Stewart Greenleaf.“Passage of JRI 2 legislation will establish solutions to the challenges that incarcerated individuals and those on parole face, ensuring fair, consistent sentencing, probation practices that are evidence-based, and initiatives that expand communications and compensation for crime victims,” Gov. Wolf said. “I applaud Senator Greenleaf and the entire Senate for passage of these important pieces of legislation that will help achieve the goals of a vastly improved criminal justice system.“The commonsense reforms under JRI 2 will help save taxpayers money and ensure that when people have served their time without incident they are able to reenter society in a timely manner so that our taxpayers are not footing the bill for extended prison stays after an individual has served their time.“JRI 2 will invest more resources in our county probation system to improve outcomes and increase the use of evidence-based best practices so that we can improve supervision and training to help probation officers work with individuals and make sure that we are only requiring those who present a real risk to go back for further supervision.“JRI 2 will also help improve sentencing guidelines to further reduce recidivism and will update sentencing guidelines to make sure that we are doing all we can to emphasize risk reduction and help make sure that people are only serving time in accordance with their violation – rather than ordering longer sentences for smaller violations.”The JRI2 package of bills include:SB 1071: Provides for release of ‘short-sentence’ offenders once a minimum sentence is reached and certain provisions are met, including no commission of violent crimes or certain sexual offenses, no gun or high-volume drug delivery offenses, and no misconduct while incarcerated. This will provide significant cost savings for the state.SB1071 also streamlines the process of accessing substance use disorder treatment for incarcerated individuals, which can lead to earlier release from prison.SB 1070: Reinvests savings generated by this bill will be used to create an Advisory Committee that will approve and finance the use of best practices in probation supervision statewide, using evidence-based practices to help county probation departments assess the unique risks and needs of each individual on probation.SB 1072: This bill improves the flow of information to crime victims by prosecutors and police and improves victim compensation for losses incurred during the crime.“We need to work to make our criminal justice system more fair, more equitable and more focused on rehabilitation, which JRI 2 will help do. Since I became governor, I have worked hard to reform our system so that it leads to better outcomes and saves taxpayer dollars – while also leading to less crime and fewer victims,” Gov. Wolf said.Governor Wolf led a call-to-action for criminal justice reform legislation, including JRI 2, at a press conference with Senator Greenleaf on April 12 at the Dauphin County Justice Center.last_img read more

Asset managers failing to use proxy votes ‘irresponsible’ – Generation IM

first_imgAsset managers are failing in their duty to asset owners if they do not engage with companies using their proxy votes, the co-founder of Generation Investment Management has said.David Blood argued that it was important to remember governance failures led to the collapse of investment bank Lehman Brothers, a fact he said underlined the importance of board composition.Speaking at a National Association of Pension Funds conference on stewardship, he noted that governance issues ranged from the composition of a board to the role of the chairperson versus the chief executive and the diversity of a board.All of these aspects matter, he said. Of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, he said: “The board failed. The CEO should have raised equity – it was well known the CEO should have raised equity – but he didn’t because the board didn’t say it.”Blood said he could give “hundreds” of examples where governance failures were ultimately responsible and questioned why some investors and asset owners failed to recognise its importance.He added that he found it “shocking” when asset managers argued that they did not possess the capability to engage or vote on behalf of asset owners, as the actions were part of the manager’s fiduciary duty.“If you are an asset manager – whether you’re an index manager, or you’re a concentrated manager – you’re taking on governance responsibilities, you must vote your proxies,” he told delegates.“To do otherwise, to say ‘Well, this just doesn’t fit my revenue model’, is irresponsible and inconsistent with what is in the best interests of clients.“Those who are confused about whether we should consider sustainability or not, or whether it’s a fiduciary issue or not, I’m not confused. It’s very clear to me that it allows you to make better investment decisions.”However, Melanie McLaren, executive director for codes and standards at the Financial Reporting Council – responsible for monitoring the UK Stewardship Code – warned against equating good engagement with constantly voting.“From an FRC point of view, we are a bit nervous about a world that suggests engagement equals a vote on anything,” she said.“We’d actually like to see engagement as genuinely that, as communication and dialogue – but it doesn’t always need to be on an ultimatum-type basis that you would get there for votes.”last_img read more

DILG sacks 27 BFP-6 personnel in Boracay caper

first_imgPersonnel of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) Regional and Iloilo City offices undergo mass testing Tuesday at the Freedom Grandstand. File Photo/Arnold Almacen/CMO Romulo-Puyat said the COVID-19 positive BFP-6 employee and her colleagues checked in on June 12 and “pretended” to be part of the Boracay Inter-Agency Task Force delegation when the latter convened on the island from June 11 to 12. Like their sacked regional director Fire Senior Superintendent Roderick Aguto, they would be investigated, too, for last week’s trip to Boracay Island with a colleague who tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). He ordered the creation of a team from the BFP national headquarters to conduct the probe. “A total of 28 personnel were relieved from their positions. Of course, they are under quarantine and would undergo reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests,” said Secretary Eduardo Año. “The concerned hotel at that time had no authority to operate, which is issued by the agency after ensuring that an accommodation facility has set health and safety protocols in place,” she said. MANILA – Twenty-seven more personnel of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) Region 6 have been relieved from their posts by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). In a related development, the Department of Tourism (DOT) revoked the accreditation of the hotel that housed the BFP-6 personnel. The Interior secretary also said 24 staff of the hotel where the BFP-6 personnel stayed and nine boatmen who ferried the group would also be subjected to quarantine. “The investigation would determine the extent of each personnel’s participation or accountability…the command responsibility of senior officers…There was a report that they’ve been drinking there…or if they violated physical distancing while having their gathering,” said Año. Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said the hotel had no Certificate of Authority to Operate yet when the BFP-6 personnel stayed in it from June 12 to 14. Boracay was reopened to tourists from around Western Visayas on June 16 upon the recommendation of the Aklan provincial government and the task force’s approval./PN “The group claimed they were attending a conference of the task force but there was no conference already that time. The task force already left Boracay,” she said.last_img read more
