Waste not, want not University community rallies to deal with COVID-19 crisis Law School’s Food Law and Policy Clinic steps up its efforts in time of pandemic Changes to human resources policies to run through May 28 Last week, the city of Cambridge announced an Emergency Order to use the War Memorial site for a temporary emergency shelter.“As we grapple with the enormity of this pandemic, we know that the city must provide an appropriate safe location for our homeless community to take shelter, properly isolate or self-quarantine, and stay safe. We are grateful to Harvard and MIT for recognizing the critical importance of this temporary emergency shelter and providing this instrumental funding,” said Siddiqui and DePasquale.Though hotels, university dormitories, and other housing complexes were discussed and considered, local public health officials pointed to several key variables that made the War Memorial the most fitting for public health needs. Its proximity to health care facilities, quick activation time, physical infrastructure, variety of separable spaces, and secure off street and underground drop-off access were among the most critical factors. Furthermore, the War Memorial’s existing security design is easily augmentable, utilizing a combination of private security for the interior and a dedicated team of Cambridge police officers to provide security for the surrounding community on a 24-hour basis.For more information on the temporary emergency shelter, visit the website. Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have made matching donations of $250,000 each to the city of Cambridge to cover costs associated with the creation of a temporary emergency shelter at the War Memorial Recreation Center, Field House, and garage.“Since this outbreak began, residents of Cambridge have benefited from the extraordinary generosity and partnership of the city’s leading business and academic institutions,” said Cambridge Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui and City Manager Louis A. DePasquale in a joint statement announcing the $500,ooo donation.“Harvard is proud to join MIT and Cambridge leaders in supporting the city’s homeless residents and ensuring that they have access to appropriate housing, food, health care and mental health services during this unprecedented public health crisis,” said Harvard President Larry Bacow. “From emergency housing, to PPE, to research and diagnostics, the entire Harvard community is bringing our best to respond to the many and unexpected issues that the novel coronavirus has presented — and we are honored to be working along so many committed partners in this effort in Cambridge, Greater Boston, and around the world.”“In our ongoing effort to help the city of Cambridge respond to this crisis, supplying financial support to create the emergency shelter was a logical next step,” said MIT President L. Rafael Reif. “As soon as we understood the need, we knew we wanted to help — and we are pleased to partner with Harvard on this critical initiative. MIT will also continue its support of Cambridge’s nonprofits, small businesses, and residents as this crisis unfolds. The leadership of Mayor Siddiqui, City Manager DePasquale, and the City Council have been a powerful inspiration. With each passing day, it becomes more obvious that we are all interdependent, bound together as neighbors.” Harvard to help track the virus Related Administrators, professors detail many and varied ways Harvard is trying to help, including offering use of hotel by Cambridge first-responders, health care workers Harvard to guarantee workers’ pay, benefits amid coronavirus disruptions Students from Chan School are helping to boost the volunteer public health workforce

Earlier this week, Jim Boeheim likened Boston College freshman guard Ky Bowman to Malik Monk and De’Aaron Fox, two freshmen guards from Kentucky and likely lottery selections in the next NBA Draft.Bowman torched Syracuse for 30 points on New Year’s Day, which included a 7-of-8 clip from 3-point land. But the player who had taken the conference by the storm in the first stanza of league play looked like a shell of himself on Saturday, let alone comparable to two of the best guards in the country.“Took away everything that he was doing, that was basically it,” Syracuse point guard John Gillon said. “Wasn’t that tough, we just had to play the right way.”The right way, for the Orange at least, was wiping out the open shots Bowman took advantage of 13 days ago. In the Carrier Dome on Saturday, he scored a meager three points on 1-of-9 shooting in SU’s (11-7, 3-2 Atlantic Coast) 76-53 win over the Eagles (9-9, 2-3), his only points coming on a highly contested 3 at the end of the shot clock in the first half.MORE COVERAGEAdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Final Word: Beat writers discuss Syracuse’s 76-53 victory What we learned from Syracuse’s 76-53 win over Boston CollegeSyracuse scores 20 points off 20 turnovers in 76-53 win against Boston CollegeTyus Battle scores career-high 21 points in Syracuse’s win “He hit like seven 3s I think, in the game at Boston College,” SU shooting guard Tyus Battle said, “so we just focused on not letting him get those open shots and making it tough for him and it turned out well today.”From the outset, it was clear Syracuse was going to make Bowman work far more for his shots. He didn’t get any open looks in the first half and any attempt at penetration was met with a slide from the top of the zone, forcing Bowman to reset.At Conte Forum in the Eagles’ 96-81 win earlier this year, Boston College utilized the post to create space on the perimeter. The Orange collapsed on the paint, and it freed up ample space for BC shooters beyond the arc, which they took advantage of the tune of 16 3-pointers on 26 attempts.This time, Boeheim could count the number of open looks Boston College had from deep on one hand.“I think there were two occasions where we left guys open and they made them,” Boeheim said. “They’re still very good shooters. … We did a better job of being there against them.”Ally Moreo | Photo EditorBowman still attempted a team-high six 3-pointers but only had the one make, with Frank Howard’s outstretched hand centimeters from his face at the top of the key. But most other times, Bowman struggled mightily to muster any form of an offensive threat.He fell into a double-team in the corner and threw the ball out of bounds across the court. Several possessions later, he double-dribbled. In the second half, Bowman rebounded his own miss but missed the jumper while trying to convert the second-chance opportunity.Without him, Boston College stumbled to a season-low 53 points not even two weeks after plastering nearly triple digits on the Orange.In this next stretch of games, Syracuse faces the cream of the crop of the ACC, starting with a Final Four rematch with North Carolina on Monday and a Saturday date with Notre Dame, the only team still undefeated in league play.Not to mention both games are on the road, where Syracuse hasn’t won yet this year. There’s Joel Berry from the Tar Heels, Steve Vasturia on Notre Dame and a litany of other star players that probably won’t put up duds like Bowman did. Syracuse knows its defensive mettle will be tested now more than it has been all year.“We let him get all these open shots,” Gillon said, “anybody in the ACC is gonna hit shots if they’re wide open.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 14, 2017 at 7:57 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman
