Thursday, 20 February 2014

With the heart-stopping 3-2 overtime victory by the Canadian women's hockey team in the final game of the Olympic tournament, four Big Red skaters earned gold medals: Rebecca Johnston '11, Laura Fortino '13, Laurianne Rougeau '13, and Brianne Jenner '13 (who scored Canada's first goal).

A day earlier, former track star Jamie Greubel '06 won a bronze medal for the USA in the women's two-man bobsled.

Cornell's sixth Olympian is Chris Langton '12, an alternate on the USA bobsled team. He saw his older brother Steve bring home a bronze medal in two-man bobsled — the first American medal in that competition since 1952.

The loss of recognition was reduced to two years and the chapter house was allowed to remain open with a full-time resident adviser. Read more.

 
Faculty Senate Asks Cornell to Divest from Fossil Fuels Print E-mail
Monday, 16 December 2013

On December 11, the Faculty Senate overwhelmingly approved a resolution calling for Cornell to divest from companies holding large reserves of fossil fuels. According to the Ithaca Journal, the vote was 46 to 13 with two abstentions. The resolution calls for gradual divestment of endowment funds in the 200 companies holding the largest such reserves, with the University to reach climate neutrality by 2035.

In a letter to the Daily Sun signed by seven professors, the proponents stated: "Our goal is to make a strong public statement that will draw attention to the need for society to transition from fossil fuels to truly clean sources of energy that are fossil carbon neutral."
