Making an art of science

March 1, 2021 | rfunaawx | No Comments

first_imgEditor’s note: This is one in a series of profiles showcasing some of Harvard’s stellar graduates.For Kevin Shee, a lifelong love of dancing and four years of intense focus on that art won’t end with his graduation from Harvard this spring. It will take a back seat, though, to a newer love: that of a scientist conducting research on cancer.Shee, who lives in Winthrop House, is a molecular and cellular biology concentrator. He plans to take a few weeks off after graduating and then begin a two-year job as a cancer researcher at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT laboratory of Todd Golub, a professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.When Shee’s two-year contract is up, he plans on pursuing additional studies in graduate school, perhaps medical school. Though he entered Harvard with pre-med aspirations, in the four years since, he has become enamored with research.But Shee is sure he’ll continue dancing. Before coming to Harvard, he danced with the Crockett-Deane Ballet, based near his home in Sacramento, Calif.Shee is the older of two children in his family, both dancers. His parents always encouraged them to pursue art, Shee said, so that was important to him when he visited Harvard for the first time and saw a dance performance. Since then, he has danced with the Harvard Ballet Company, the Asian American Dance Troupe, and the Harvard Dance Program.Though he was urged to audition for jobs as a dancer after Commencement, Shee is a bit philosophical about the choice presented to him.“Dance is not something you need to do on a professional basis to really do it, and really enjoy it,” Shee said. “The act of expressing myself through dance is very fulfilling for me. Doing it as an extracurricular, but to a full extent, is more than I had hoped for.”Though he expects to continue taking dance lessons in Boston, Shee loves science too. Shee was interested in science in high school, but it was only in college that he was able to delve more fully into biology and become intrigued by both its complexity and its potential to do good.“There are a lot of things in the field of biology that I had no idea about. I found there was so much more to be discovered and so much more I needed to learn to make a mark in the field,” Shee said. “The more I learned, the more I realized there’s a lot to be done.”Shee has some personal motivation as well, since cancer has touched his family. A cousin died of liver cancer while Shee was at Harvard, and his mother is a breast cancer survivor.“This research has a lot to offer the world,” Shee said.Though many people think art and science are opposite disciplines, Shee doesn’t think that’s the case. The further he delves into biology, the more he sees the beauty of how it’s put together and understands that intuition and feeling, important to the dancer, are also important to the scientist.“They seem mutually exclusive, but they’re really not,” Shee said.For students just entering Harvard, Shee recommends they find something that excites them enough to spend the time it will take to excel in it.“It’s really important to find a passion, something to give your day to,” Shee said.last_img read more

first_imgArsenal have won their last two matches against Alisson’s Liverpool side (Picture: Getty)Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson admits the Premier League champions failed to maintain their usual high standards towards the end of last season, but last week’s win at Chelsea has helped restore confidence and build momentum ahead of Monday’s heavyweight showdown against Arsenal.Jurgen Klopp’s side cantered to the title last season but displayed signs of vulnerability during the run-in and began the current campaign by losing to the Gunners on penalties in the Community Shield and conceded three times in an opening day seven-goal thriller against Leeds at Anfield. Liverpool returned to their ruthless best at Stamford Bridge last weekend, recording their first clean sheet in nine matches in the process, and will put their 100% start to the season on the line on against rapidly improving Arsenal.AdvertisementAdvertisementThe signings of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota have given an added boost to the feelgood factor around Anfield and, after a slight wobble, Alisson is confident Liverpool are returning to their best form. ADVERTISEMENTHe said: ‘We know that we dropped a little bit, we don’t know why,” he said. “It wasn’t something we wanted to do but we knew we had to go back to our path if we want to be competitive this season for the title, because I believe this season the level is higher.

It was 4-3 and a good game for anyone who is watching football, but a really hard game to play.‘Then you have Chelsea away and it’s a tough opponent and then the way we went to the pitch from the mental perspective, I really liked this. I like the intensity of the game, I like the way we defended also, the opponent had some opportunities to score but it was from the quality of the opponent. But what I like was our mentality on that game. I think we are on the right path again.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Act Leader Jamie Whyte stands by incest comments

September 27, 2020 | tdpedrwj | No Comments

first_imgNZ Herald 26 February 2014New Act Leader Jamie Whyte is standing by his comments that incestuous relationships between consenting adults should not be illegal and says it would be “intellectually corrupt” of him not to be honest when asked such questions.In an article published on The Ruminator website, former philosophy lecturer Dr Whyte was asked whether the state should intervene if adult siblings wanted to marry each other.“Well personally, I don’t think they [the State] should”, he replied, adding it was “a matter of almost no significance because it just doesn’t happen”.Dr Whyte told the Herald his response was  based on his belief that: “I don’t think the state should intervene in consensual adult sex or marriage, but there are two very important elements here – consensual and adult”.“I wonder who does believe the state should intervene in consensual adult acts?”He said he was “very opposed” to incest.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11210373ACT Leader’s incest comments pretty silly – PMONE Newshttp://tvnz.co.nz/politics-news/act-leader-s-incest-comments-pretty-silly-pm-5853668last_img read more

first_img–Source: BBC West Ham midfielder Declan Rice has been named in England’s squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro in March.The 20-year-old switched international allegiance from the Republic of Ireland to England in a move recently ratified by world governing body Fifa.London-born Rice played three times for the Republic but qualified for England as they were all friendly appearances.England host the Czechs on 22 March and are away in Montenegro on 25 March.Rice, who has Irish grandparents, played for the Republic from under-16 level and went on to make three senior friendly outings last year, including games against France and the United States before the 2018 World Cup.He broke into the West Ham first team at the start of the season and, as he considered his international future, was omitted from Republic squads because playing competitive games would have stopped him switching allegiance.Why no Wan-Bissaka or Angus Gunn?Southampton goalkeeper Angus Gunn and Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka are both overlooked by Southgate.The in-form pair are dual-qualified – Wan-Bissaka has played once for the Democratic Republic of Congo at under-20 level and Gunn is coveted by Scotland.Southgate said: “I could pick players, give them a cap and stop them playing for someone else but I don’t think that’s right. Angus has got a good challenge to get into our under-21s. There’s some good competition for places.”England squadGoalkeepers: Jack Butland (Stoke City), Tom Heaton (Burnley), Jordan Pickford (Everton)Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Ben Chilwell (Leicester City), Michael Keane (Everton), Harry Maguire (Leicester City), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), John Stones (Manchester City), James Tarkowski (Burnley), Kieran Trippier (Tottenham Hotspur), Kyle Walker (Manchester City)Midfielders: Ross Barkley (Chelsea), Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur), Fabian Delph (Manchester City), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea), Declan Rice (West Ham)Forwards: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Callum Wilson (Bournemouth)last_img read more
