The Infamous Cleveland Balloonfest of 1986 That Went Terribly Wrong

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.
