ABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Tropical Depression Cristobal is meandering over the Yucatan Peninsula Friday morning, but it’s expected to move back into the Gulf of Mexico overnight and strengthen back into a Tropical Storm.As it moves north, Cristobal will encounter a lot of atmospheric sheer and dry air, and because of that, it is only expected to have about 60 mph winds.By Sunday afternoon, Cristobal will approach the Louisiana coast, but because the storm will be large, its effects will be felt all the way to Florida.Due to the size of the tropical cyclone, flood watches have been issued for Florida, Mississippi and Louisiana through early next week.The biggest threat with Cristobal will be heavy rain and flooding. Some areas along the Gulf Coast, and even into Mid-Mississippi River Valley, could see between 5 to as much as 10 inches of rain. Locally, more than 10 inches of rain is possible.So far, the storm has caused 2 to 3 feet of rain to fall in Central America and Mexico, producing deadly flash floods.In other weather news around the country, widespread severe weather caused more than 300 damaging storm reports from Colorado to New Jersey.There were four reported tornadoes Thursday in Tennessee and Nebraska, but no major damage was reported.Winds in South Dakota gusted up to 95 mph, which pushed a semi-truck off the road and baseball-size hail damaged cars and shattered windows in the state.Severe weather is possible for southern Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Louisiana and Mississippi Friday, where damaging winds and hail are possible.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

More bread baiting came at the hands of The Sunday Times this week (and a copycat story in The Times on Monday), which castigated wholemeal bread for nearly doubling levels of sugar over the past 30 years.The nub of the report was that the sugar content in a typical loaf of wholemeal bread rose from 2.1g per 100g in 1978 to 3.7g per 100g in a Hovis wholemeal loaf today. It compared 1978 data, gleaned from McCance and Widdowson’s The Composition of Foods, with a loaf plucked from the shelf – in this case, Hovis, which uses a small amount of brown sugar.So why is there more sugar in our bread, it asked. Is it added to make loaves more palatable, perhaps compen- sating for cuts in salt urged by the FSA? Perhaps, but what the report failed to note was that sugar is not a common added ingredient in all wholemeal loaves.One plant baker told me that his supermarket loaf contains no added sugar. Despite this, a quick look at the nutrition label showed carbohydrate sugar content similar to the Hovis loaf. So are there labelling inconsistencies? As one scientific expert noted, nothing underhand is going on and “nobody is concealing the addition of sugar in bread”.A sticking point is that ’sugar’ has not been defined in this debate. A whole host of reasons could be behind increasing levels of sugars – from the addition of malt to wheat variety changes having a difference on carbohydrate levels, to the increased use of enzymes, which generate more maltose in the fermentation process, even in no-time doughs. Nutritional analytical techniques have also improved significantly over the past 30 years.Even so, with 100g of wholemeal bread – typically two-and-a-half slices – weighing in at less than a teaspoon of brown sugar, this doesn’t quite compete with a can of Coke (10 teaspoons of refined sugar) for a sugar rush strong enough to get the kids climbing the curtains.Also in the news this week, congratulations are due to the NA’s new chairman, Shirley Ryder, and president, Mike Holling, and to Simon Solway, who has taken over as president of the newly named Alliance for Bakery Students & Trainees (see pgs 6 and 9).
Fresh off the campaign trail, Greensky Bluegrass brought their infectious live sound to Eugene, OR for a performance at the McDonald Theatre last night. Energy was at a high as GSBG threw down in Seattle the previous night, and fans had high hopes for a great night of music.The band certainly did not disappoint, as they had special guest sit-ins from Mimi Naja from Fruition and pianist Holly Bowling for the performance. Naja joined in at the end of set one, accentuating “All Four,” “Santa Fe” and “Reuben’s Train.” Bowling came in for the end of set two, playing “The Four” into Grateful Dead’s “Eyes Of The World.” Bowling also returned for the encore, “Who Is Frederico?”Watch all of Bowling’s sit in, below:There’s also full show audio available for those inclined, as captured by Dean Grabski:Setlist: Greensky Bluegrass at McDonald Theatre, Eugene, OR – 3/26/16:Set 1: Jaywalking, Windshield, Living Over, Against the Days, How Mountain Girls Can Love, All Four*, Santa Fe*, Rueben’s Train*Set 2: Fixin to Ruin, Take Cover, Bring Out Your Dead, Handle With Care, Fo Sho, Uh Huh, Hit Parade of Love, Forget Everything, Broke Mountain Breakdown, The Four% > Eyes of the World%E: Who is Federico?% * w/ Mimi Naja% w/ Holly Bowling
In 2013, Jennifer Chung was working as a software engineer in Seattle when she decided to take CopyrightX, an online legal course offered through Harvard’s edX collaboration with other universities.Now she’s a second-year student at Harvard Law School (HLS).Chung’s interest in copyright law stemmed from her hobbies. She wrote fiction and played music in her free time, and so understood the disruptive effect that information technology has had on the intellectual property rights of artists of all kinds.“It’s basically a body of law that was really relevant to me, based on my hobbies and my profession,” Chung said. “I really enjoyed the course. It was applicable to my interests.”CopyrightX is part of a culture of experimentation in online learning that has marked HarvardX — the University’s portion of edX — from the beginning. The course pioneered a parallel teaching model for online and on-campus students and, more recently, an additional hybrid model that combines online and in-person learning far from Harvard’s campus.Rather than substituting online learning for in-person learning as some courses do, HarvardX Faculty Director Robert Lue said the hybrid model seeks instead to combine the strengths of each method, allowing students to view various types of online content, which frees teaching time for more personal interactions.“For what kinds of learning does online work particularly well? By using it in that manner, can you free up time and persons to focus on the modes of learning — hands-on learning, experiential learning — that are best handled in person?” Lue said. “The idea is to have them complement each other in a very profound way.”CopyrightX is offered to different student populations in different ways. For instance, the in-person version of the course is offered in a traditional classroom to HLS students. The online version, which is taught in parallel with the campus course, has been offered since edX began in 2012.The third, hybrid version of the course began almost by accident, according to William Fisher, the WilmerHale Professor of Intellectual Property Law, the course’s main instructor. That first year, he said, a former student asked if she could use the CopyrightX material to teach a parallel course to her students in Jamaica. Fisher agreed. During the course’s second year, instructors at 10 institutions around the world offered it, combining their own in-class instruction with CopyrightX’s online lectures and reading materials. This year, the number of affiliated courses grew to 18, at institutions from Australia to Africa to the Middle East to Europe to the Caribbean to South America.“The original vision had two dimensions, the Harvard Law School course and the 500 online students. So far as I know, the full integration of a residential course and the online course was itself unprecedented: not just teaching them in parallel, which is unusual, but using the same materials,” Fisher said. “I did not initially contemplate the third layer.”CS50x, the edX version of Harvard’s popular introductory computer science course, has proven hugely successful — it has over 450,000 registrants as of this spring — and anticipates its own hybrid version this fall at Yale University.David J. Malan, Gordon McKay Professor of the Practice of Computer Science, said the Yale course is designed to mirror the Harvard on-campus experience as much as possible. It will have the same recorded lectures that online and Harvard students view. It will be overseen by a Yale computer science professor, aided by teaching fellows, as it is on the Harvard campus.“It’s ultimately motivated by our interest in and my own personal interest in the openness of educational content,” Malan said. “This is surely a good thing for the whole world if we can stand on each other’s shoulders so that we don’t need to reinvent so many wheels.”The hybrid model is just part of the culture of innovation at HarvardX, Lue said. Instructors are still trying new techniques and learning how best to teach far-flung students. What works for one instructor may not work for another. What works for one subject may not work for another. But along the way, innovation continues.Andrew Gordon, the Lee and Juliet Folger Fund Professor of History and an expert on Japan, worked with John Dower and Shigeru Miyagawa at Massachusetts Institute of Technology to design last fall’s “Visualizing Japan,” a unique course on Japanese history that flipped the usual priority of text and illustrative materials, making art, photographs, and other visual media the central focus.The six-week course had higher-than-average student retention, Gordon said, and prompted a follow-on course about postwar Tokyo taught by a professor at the University of Tokyo. The course created a trove of visual materials that can be used as a resource by faculty members in the future and, Gordon said, the process of co-teaching and co-producing gave him new insights into both history and pedagogy.“It was like making a documentary movie,” Gordon said. “I was a learner as well as a teacher.”
More options to help you build and ramp up your business the way you want to, according to your workloads.Your IT transformation requires on-demand infrastructure to meet the demands for changing business needs and architecture.A key portion of the budget is comprised of the planning for new infrastructure and the workload need for the business.

More than 100 Notre Dame students, faculty and South Bend community members gathered at the Grotto on Thursday night for a remembrance prayer vigil to show support for the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa, Mexico.In September, students from the Rural Teachers College of Ayotzinapa were abducted during a peaceful protest. Since then, the protest movement in Mexico has spread around the world and continues to gain momentum as people turn the spotlight on the country to demand justice for the more than 20,000 people who have disappeared since 2006.Michael Yu Ph.D. student César Leon Soto, president of the Latino Graduate Association at Notre Dame (LGAND), planned the vigil as a vehicle to bring the global movement directly to the Notre Dame community, reminding students that young adults similar to themselves were severely punished for standing up for their beliefs.Forty-three empty chairs stood around the grotto as a reminder of the missing students. In the tradition of Latin American protest movements, each student’s name was called as a candle was lit on their chair.“This serves as a symbolic gesture indicating that the 43 are not forgotten and that their struggle is now ours,” Soto said.Marisel Moreno, associate professor of Spanish, said she encourages students to not remain unmoved by such “unimaginable” violence.“As members of a higher learning institution, it’s unimaginable to think of 43 of our own students victimized for standing up against corruption and oppression,” she said. “These students are the latest victims of a highly corrupt system that is working in tandem with drug cartels and benefits from impunity. … We are all implicated, and it ultimately affects us all.”According to Soto, there are various ways for students to get involved in the movement. By clicking on hashtags such as #FightingForAyotzinapa, #WeAreAyotzinapa and #Ayotzinapa, students can stay up-to-date on the movement.Soto said he calls all Notre Dame students to become aware of the problems in Mexico and to work toward restoring the image of Notre Dame as “a champion of human rights” and more than just a “football school.”“Ultimately, we can show our support by putting pressure on the Mexican government, by writing letters to the Mexican consulate expressing our dismay,” he said.According to Kellogg visiting fellow Sandra Ley Gutiérrez, student movements are important in creating change and providing energy and strength to the demands for truth and justice. Gutiérrez ended the prayer service by challenging students to become informed, spread the word, show support and reject all forms of violence.“Lastly, never forget, and never let others forget about this massacre,” she said. “We are counting on you.”Tags: Ayotzinapa, LGAND, Mexico, missing students, prayer vigil
The Notre Dame community honored the nearly 60 people killed and more than 500 injured in Sunday’s shooting at a country music concert in Las Vegas. Earlier in the day, University President Fr. John Jenkins released a statement expressing his condolences and the day ended with a 9 p.m. prayer service at the Grotto on Monday.“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the awful carnage in Las Vegas,” Jenkins said in a statement. “We pray that there comes a day when the senseless violence that has plagued the nation for so long ends for good.”According to an email from Campus Ministry, the bells of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart tolled in honor of the victims from 3 p.m. – 3:05 p.m. Later, at 5:15 p.m., special prayers were offered for the victims in Las Vegas at the Annual Red Mass, at which Fr. Kevin C. Rhoades, the Bishop of Fort Wayne–South Bend diocese, presided. At 9 p.m., director of Campus Ministry, Fr. Pete McCormick, led a prayer service at the Grotto.Allie Green, Campus Ministry’s assistant director of liturgy, emphasized the community element of the service.“The only way we can come together to make sense of this is together in groups,” Green said. “We can try to make sense of this violence as one family.”Green also noted the importance of the Grotto as the venue for the service.“How blessed we are to a have a sacred space like the Grotto to pray,” she said.Kate Barrett, associate director of liturgy, also stated the importance of gathering as a community.“I think the thing about events such as last night is that there is a lot of fear surrounding it because it is so unpredictable,” she said. “One of the things we hope comes out of this is solidarity,” Barrett said. “You can only overcome hatred and violence through prayer, community and peace.”Barrett agreed that selecting the Grotto as the venue was an important choice.“The Grotto is a place where people come to find comfort,” she said. “We chose it, as opposed to a mass or a rosary, so that we could include everyone.”The service itself consisted of a hymn, an opening prayer, a reading from St. Paul’s letter to the Colossians, intercessions, the Lord’s Prayer and the alma mater. Once the alma mater was finished, the assembled community members exchanged signs of peace before many entered the Grotto itself to light candles in honor of the victims. Throughout, quiet weeping pervaded the air.After the conclusion of the Lord’s Prayer, McCormick issued a call for unity.“As we conclude this prayer with our hands joined, let us remember that we are stronger together,” McCormick said. “Just as we stand here at this Grotto, that emanates forth light, it is made brighter by the candles united together. The same is true for us.“In a day in which darkness seemingly prevailed, always remember that the light is within. That what we have to offer this world is made most profound in our unity, the ways in which we come together to share for love one another, and share compassion for one another. You can always, and I promise this, always, be the change you want to be in the world by simply joining hands, as we do tonight.”Tags: Grotto, Las Vegas shooting, Prayer service
