Harvard’s Theresa Lund “Here’s another Permit Patty trying to kick me off my own property” Black Mom

Alyson Laliberte: “Y’all here is another Permit Patty trying to kick me off my own property because she’s having a hard time getting her kids to take a nap at 3:30 in the afternoon on a Saturday. I’m outside enjoying the afternoon with my daughter when this woman came downstairs and asked me if I would move so her kids can nap. Mind you it’s mid day and we weren’t even being loud at all drawing with chalk. She followed me around and harassed me trying to get my information and apartment number as if she had a right to know. When I wouldn’t tell her she proceeded to ask me if I lived in the “affordable apartments” of the building for Cambridge residents or if I lived in one of the Harvard owned apartments (which is all the same building anyways). It was totally discriminating and racist of her.. or maybe it was because my daughter is biracial who knows. I have no idea who this woman is and the fact that she thinks she has some kind of authority over me is crazy! She wanted to know what apartment number I lived at so she can yell outside my window to see if I like it (real mature) as you hear her say in the video. This woman’s house is no bigger than mine even if she lives in one of the apartments that are owned by Harvard. Despite color, where I live, how much money I have she will be buried 6 feet under just like me… Why do people think they are literally better than others? Why does she think she has a right to make us move? If she really did not want to be disturbed she would own a one family house instead of deciding on moving in to a condominium with a bunch of neighbors. I’ve lived in this complex for 15 years. Not one other person complained about my daughter and I. I have no idea who this woman is but if someone knows her please tag her and share this if you agree!!!!”

Police arresting 14-year-old black teen outside of Philadelphia Zoo for selling water

Black youth’s arrest at Philadelphia Zoo sparks argument between zoo security staffers

The chaotic arrest of a black youth at the Philadelphia Zoo on Thursday was captured on video and posted to Facebook, where it has drawn more than 170,000 views and raised questions of how white people and police treat black people.

The video shows one of the zoo’s public safety officers, a black woman, shouting at another safety officer, a white woman who allegedly got Philadelphia police involved.

“This is what you did!” the black safety officer yelled at the white safety officer, as police held the youth face-down on the ground and tried to put him in handcuffs. “This is what you want. Is this what you want?”

“I only asked him to move!” the white safety officer shouted back. “I asked him to move.”

In the background, people could be heard saying, “What’d he do?” and “I’m sick of this.” Passing drivers stopped and honked.

Efforts to locate the youth, who was led away from the scene in handcuffs, or his family have been unsuccessful. It’s unclear how old he is and what charges, if any, he faces. Friday evening, a police spokesperson only said, “we are aware of the video and we are currently reviewing it.”

The video, which lasted about a minute and 30 seconds, doesn’t show what was happening before police approached the group.

Some people who commented on the video on Facebook said the youth and others regularly sold water at the plaza outside the zoo’s gates near 34th Street and Girard Avenue, where the arrest occurred. The woman who posted the video could not be reached Friday, but wrote that the youth were trying to raise money for their football team.

A zoo spokesperson, Dana Lombardo, said the group was not affiliated with “any legitimate local sports team” and was not selling water bottles at the time. She said zoo staff had asked the group to leave the plaza.

“There have been a number of incidents with this particular group, including soliciting money from zoo guests, throwing rocks at a zoo staff member just the previous day, and harassing another female public safety officer just before this incident occurred,” Lombardo said.

The group began to leave, she said, but made a “threatening remark” to one of the zoo’s safety officers, who then flagged down a Philadelphia police cruiser that was driving by.

The zoo did not detail what the alleged remark was or whether the arrested youth was behind it. The zoo also didn’t say whether the white safety officer in the video was the one who alerted police.

The Infamous Cleveland Balloonfest of 1986 That Went Terribly Wrong

In September 1986, the city of Cleveland attempted to set a special record: the simultaneous launch of 1.5 million balloons. But fate intervened, and the result was both crazier and more tragic than anyone could have imagined.

Harvard’s First Female President Drew Gilpin Faust Address at Harvard Commencement Speech 2018

Harvard President Drew Faust delivered powerful messages to the Class of 2018 on the importance of truth, justice, and equality at a time when those values have come under assault in some corners of the country and the world.

Speaking at Afternoon Exercises of Harvard’s 367th Commencement, Lewis repeatedly called on graduates to assume leadership roles in a world that needs them, while Faust noted that this year it wasn’t just the speakers on stage urging students to get to work. The graduates themselves see the challenges before them, she said.

“Never has the world needed these graduates more, and I think they understand that,” Faust said, sharing observations from a recent lunch with seniors.

“They described how their attitudes and plans had altered because of these changed circumstances. They no longer took their world for granted. The future of our society, our country, our planet could not be guaranteed; it was up to them.

“Their careers and life goals had shifted to embrace a much broader sense of responsibility, extending beyond themselves to encompass an obligation to a common good they had come to recognize might not survive without them.”

Faust and Lewis delivered their remarks at Tercentenary Theatre during the annual meeting of the Harvard Alumni Association.

RARE: Young Anthony Bourdain prior to No Reservations visits chef Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant in UK

Anthony Bourdain eats at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant and is blown away!

Pre-No Reservations, around 2000, Anthony Bourdain paid a visit to Gordon Ramsay’s eponymous London restaurant, as part of his Cook’s Tour series, at a time when Ramsay was still on the pass.

This is the era, you may remember, when Ramsay was chasing his third Michelin star and was truly at the top of his game, turning out faultless and elegant French classics from an unforgiving kitchen.

Bourdain goes on to enjoy what he describes as one of the best meals of his life, moving through four “extraordinary” courses, including a classic Ramsay lobster ravioli and a sumptuous braised shin of beef topped with truffle and foie gras that Bourdain describes as “one of the best things I’ve eaten, ever.”

Interestingly, Bourdain describes Ramsay at the time as “not a name brand – he’s a hands on chef,” which as we all know, was soon to change.

It’s a great insight into just what a good chef Ramsay really is.
