Harvard President Larry Bacow recently welcomed Cambridge Mayor Marc McGovern and hundreds of senior citizens to the 44th annual Harvard Cambridge Senior Luncheon. Guests enjoyed dancing and mingling with friends in Harvard’s historic Tercentenary Theatre.It was Andrea Haber’s first time coming to the luncheon. Haber, who has lived in Cambridge for more than 53 years, said the festivities were “outstanding.” “It’s been well-organized, relaxing, and really just remarkable,” she said.Jack Jennings, GSAS ’80, who lives just down the street, said he’s been coming to the luncheon for more than 20 years. “I’ve been around … I’ve lived in many places and I’ve traveled to many places, and I can think of no better place to be than a few blocks from Harvard and the Square,” he said. “I’ve found a home here. It’s the best place to be in the world.”

The Panthers, 21-8, opened States with a five-set victory over Florida State College at Jacksonville.However, Palm Beach State lost to top ranked Miami-Dade 3-1 and before being swept 3-0 in the rematch against Florida State College at Jacksonville.By the way, the weather in West Palm Beach recently has been a balmy 26 C. The Nelson Daily: Take me through the way you got to attend Palm Beach to play volleyball.Katie Wayling:I look at life as one big adventure. As my grad year came to it’s last few months I started thinking more and more about how I could get out and live life to it’s fullest.I began to realize all the opportunities that were right there in front of me so I set out to pursue one and it landed me here. I started by researching schools in areas that I would like to travel to. After emailing several different schools, I came across PBSC (Palm Beach State College). I contacted the coaches and after they reviewed my game footage they offered me the full ride scholarship. How could I pass up the opportunity to not only play volleyball at the collegiate level, but also travel to a place I have never been before! I took the chance, packed my bags and hopped on a plane to Florida saying goodbye to everything familiar to me . . . and all I can say is I couldn’t be happier with my decision.TND: How’s the volleyball experience? KW: Not only are my coaches very kind, but they make me see the game in ways I didn’t know existed. Running plays I have never ran before makes things new and exciting so I enjoy every opportunity I get to get better. I feel as though I have become a much stronger setter since training here. I have a great time with all the girls on and off the court and have certainly made friendships that will continue down the road for many years to come. This is the exact level I wanted to compete at so I am very content. TND: Are you getting lots of time? KW: We started the season running a 6-2. I would play three rotations, sit three rotations, then back in for three again and so on. About a month into the season we began running a 5-1 with me as the starting setter. I have been getting plenty of playing time with the exception of a couple games that I was out due to a shoulder injury. TND: Do you live on campus?KW: The majority of student-athletes live in Emerald Lake’s apartments and town houses. It is a very nice complex surrounding a lake less than a mile off campus. I live in a two-story town house with three teammates. The houses are very nice and spacious- LOVE having my own room. TND: Did you think last year at this time, during Grade 12 season with the Cats, you’d be playing varsity volleyball in Florida?KW: I had no idea where life was going to take me at that point. TND: Did your time at Mount Sentinel prepare you for life outside the Kootenays?KW: The months I spent with classmates, (the) teachers of Quest for Community, the things I experienced and life lessons I discovered in that time span have had more impact on shaping me into the person I am today than anything else in my life. TND: And what about all those bus rides, tournaments and provincials as a member of the Wildcats?KW: All of the great times and achievements that were had with (varsity volleyball coach) Joe (Moreira) and the Cats will never be forgotten. [email protected] As an athlete at South Slocan’s Mount Sentinel High School, Katie Wayling has done it all — well almost everything.Moving from Stanley Humphries in Castlegar during her Grade 9 year the budding volleyball/basketball star made an immediate impact on the varsity girl’s teams.During the four years at Mount Sentinel Wayling was part of a pair of provincial titles, both — B.C. High School A Girl’s Volleyball Championship in 2007 and B.C. High School A Girl’s Basketball crown in 2008— coming in the same school year. Wayling, 18, achieved the rare feat while playing with older sister Kendra.Something very rarely accomplished at the high school level, especially in the Kootenays.Wayling also played for Team B.C. Volleyball squad in the summers of 2007 and 2008.But athletics is not the only highlight of Wayling’s schooling.In January of this year, the daughter of Rand and Christine Wayling was part of the Mount Sentinel School trip that was in Haiti during the earthquake.Which was an event that definitely gave the 5’7” setter from Canada a different outlook on life.So much so that Wayling has allowed very little moss to grow under her feet as she is now attending school in sunny Florida at Palm Beach State College, located 60 miles north of Miami in Lake Worth, Florida.The Nelson Daily Sports Editor Bruce Fuhr caught up with Wayling prior to leading the mighty Panthers into the National Junior College Athletic Association Florida State Championships Women’s Volleyball Championships in Winter Haven.

Al-Qahtaniya (Syria): A car bombing claimed by the Islamic State group killed five people, including three children, in a Kurdish-held town in northeast Syria on Wednesday, a war monitor said. The explosive-rigged vehicle detonated in Al-Qahtaniya, a town in Hasakeh province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor. Hoker Arafat, a security official, said the bomb was detonated remotely in front of the town post office. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US”Three children were killed in the bombing because it was very close to a primary school,” he said. A member of the local security forces was wounded in the attack, he added. State news agency SANA also reported the bombing, saying it killed several people, including children. IS claimed the attack on its Telegram channel. The jihadist group routinely claims attacks in northeast Syria, despite its territorial defeat earlier this year. Such attacks have included arson against wheat fields and deadly car bombs. IS maintains a presence in the country’s vast Badia desert, as well as in areas controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in the country’s northeast and east. The SDF, backed by the war planes of a US-led coalition, announced the end of IS’ self-proclaimed “caliphate” in March in the village of Baghouz, in Syria’s far east.
OTTAWA – The federal ethics commissioner has cleared Finance Minister Bill Morneau of allegations that he and his father benefited from insider information to save half a million dollars on the sale of shares in their family-built company.Political opponents asked ethics commissioner Mary Dawson to look into several sales of millions of dollars worth of shares in Morneau Shepell Inc. in late 2015 by Morneau and his father. The sales came just days before a major tax announcement that the minister’s accusers say triggered a dip in the stock market.Morneau’s December 2015 announcement raising income taxes on the highest earners had a wide-reaching market impact, they argued, because it encouraged wealthier shareholders to sell off some their stock holdings before the changes came into effect on Jan. 1, 2016. Doing so meant big savings for the Morneau family, they alleged.Not so, Dawson said in a Jan. 5 letter to Morneau released Monday: there was no privileged information acted upon, since the tax increase was first announced publicly “well in advance” of the family’s stock sales.“With respect to the sale of Morneau Shepell Inc. shares in the fall of 2015, I am of the view that you did not benefit from insider information,” writes Dawson, whose seven-year tenure as conflict of interest and ethics commissioner happened to end Monday.She referred to statements to the media made Nov. 4, 2015, by then-House leader Dominic LeBlanc, who said the tax measures would take effect on Jan. 1, 2016. Dawson also noted that the Liberals’ 2015 election platform had promised to introduce the tax changes.“This was well in advance of the sale of your Morneau Shepell Inc. shares on Nov. 30, 2015, and the tabling of the Dec. 7, 2015, ways and means motion on this matter.”The other sales by Morneau’s father, William Morneau Sr., were made Nov. 23 and Dec. 3.In a separate examination, Dawson also cleared Morneau of allegations that he was involved in the Bank of Canada’s renewal of its contract with Morneau Shepell to manage its employee pension plan. The Bank of Canada renewed its contract with the company for four years in February 2017.Dawson said she opted to close the matter after reviewing documents provided by the Bank of Canada and comments sent to her by Morneau’s counsel. “I am satisfied that, as minister of finance, you had no involvement in the Bank of Canada’s decision of the renewal of the Morneau Shepell Inc. contract.”Morneau’s name, however, has yet to be fully cleared by the ethics commissioner’s office, which has another formal examination underway related to his connection to Morneau Shepell.The review was launched amid conflict-of-interest allegations over proposed pension reform spearheaded by Morneau. Opponents say the legislation would have brought him personal financial benefit, Morneau has denied the conflict-of-interest accusations.A spokeswoman for the commissioner’s office confirmed Monday in an email that the examination remains active.These were all among several high-profile controversies that battered Morneau in the second half of 2017.In July, he enraged small-business owners by proposing tax-system changes. The ensuing uproar forced him to eventually back off elements of his plan.He has also faced intense political pressure over how he handled his personal financial arrangements after coming to office. The questions focused on his shares in Morneau Shepell, for which he was executive chairman until his election win.In response to the controversy, he sold off the remainder of his holdings last fall in the pension management firm, which were worth about $21 million.He promised to place his other substantial assets in a blind trust. Morneau donated to charity the difference between what the shares were worth at the time of the sale and their value in 2015 when he was first elected — estimated at about $5 million.Dawson also fined Morneau $200 for failing to disclose his role as a director in a private corporation that owns a villa in France. Morneau had disclosed his ownership of the villa, but — owing to what his office called an administrative oversight — failed to mention the ownership structure itself.On Monday, a spokeswoman for Morneau said that his office was “pleased with the outcome” of the commissioner’s latest examination.“The minister will continue to work with the office of the ethics commissioner to ensure he is in full compliance with the rules,” Chloe Luciani-Girouard wrote in an email. “The minister has gone above and beyond the initial recommendations from the ethics commissioner by divesting all his family’s holdings in his former company.”However, Conservative finance critic Pierre Poilievre continued to say Monday that Morneau was wrong to sell his shares shortly before introducing the tax hike on the wealthiest Canadians — whether or not he actually broke conflict of interest rules.“Conservatives believe it is unwise for ministers to buy or sell shares in the weeks immediately before the introduction of tax measures,” Poilievre said in a statement.“Finance ministers should lead by example. It is not good enough for ministers to boast that their actions are not illegal.”Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter
