Westminster College is pleased to announce that sophomore Blaine Ravert of Columbia, MO, is the recipient of the prestigious 2021-2022 Presidential Fellowship through the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress (CSPC).

A Political Science and Philosophy double-major, Ravert is a founding member of the College?s John Quincy Adams Society and its Policy Leadership Development Program. He also served on the Columbia area Helping Our Peers Everywhere Club from 2016 to 2020. Ravert was elected an executive board member in 2019.

?I am honored and proud to be selected, because I know of the extremely high quality of the other applicants,? Ravert said recently after being informed of the fellowship. ?I am also very excited to get such a remarkable opportunity so early in my academic career.?

Dr. Tobias T. Gibson, the Dr. John Langton Professor of Legal Studies and Political Science, says Ravert exemplifies what a Presidential Fellow should be as a result of his long list of accomplishments. He cites Ravert?s membership in the Westminster Honors Program, his high GPA, and a variety of op-eds Ravert published in local newspapers as a freshman.

Gibson adds, ?As his advisor, along with Dr. James McRae, I am confident Blaine will represent the College well and gain a firm understanding of the U.S. presidency and public policy during his fellowship.?

Westminster began participating in the CSPC program in 2020.

The College is among only a handful of small liberal arts institutions nationwide ? and the only college or university in Missouri ? to be included as a participant.

A premiere outlet for scholarship on the presidency, the CSPC has partnered for more than 50 years with institutions such as Harvard University, Stanford University, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Naval Academy.

Through the highly respectable and historic program, Westminster students such as Ravert are provided with the unique opportunity to engage on the national stage with policy makers and members of the U.S. Congress. His participation will include monthly online meetings and a scheduled trip to Washington, DC, this fall.

Ravert also will be expected to do more in-depth study and complete additional projects.

He explains, ?I will be writing a paper that examines how artificial intelligence and the presidents? commander-in-chief powers have interacted and could continue to interact.?

After he graduates, Ravert says he plans to attend graduate school with a focus on international affairs and policy analysis. Until then, he is content to focus on the year ahead.

?I took a class with Tobias about the presidency last semester, and I wanted to learn more about the topic,? Ravert reflects. ?It [the fellowship] really looks like an interesting opportunity.?

For more information on the CPSC?s Presidential Fellowship, please contact Dr. Tobias T. Gibson at Tobias.Gibson@WCMO.edu.

Yet another “yeah no” note

Following up on “Yeah no” and “‘Yeah no’ mailbag” (4/3/2008), Russell Lee-Goldman writes:

I was actually about to send a long email to you about yeah-no, but decided just to put it on my blog.

That’s “Yeah-no and no-yeah again“. Noncompositional (3/4/2008).

But one highlight that might interest you is that I found a token of “yeah no” while trolling through archived NPR transcripts on lexis-nexis: it’s Geoff Nunberg in Talk of the Nation, April 2nd 2004. The lead-up to the “yeah no” starts at around 10m:30s into his segment of the show.

See Russell’s blog post for a transcript and discussion. If I were breaking into the conversation at this point, I might observe that

Yeah, no, well, in fact “yeah no” is pretty much the thematic idiom of NPR.

That is, if I were the sort of person who makes such facile generalizations, which I’m not.

But here are a couple of random examples anyhow. On Science Friday, 4/30/2005, a caller asks whether math is “part of the structure of our mind and reality”. Ira Flatow says “Hang on. I’ve got to get a reaction from Keith Devlin, if he dares to react to that.” And Keith Devlin responds:

Yeah. No, and in fact, that’s what my book “The Math Instinct” is all about.

On Talk of the Nation, 10/7/2003, Scott Simon asks Ivo Daalder and Todd Lindberg for reactions to Condoleeza’s Rice’s appointment as head of the Iraq Stabilization Group, and after each has had a turn, Daalder continues with

Yeah. No, no. I mean, I think that’s right, we didn’t quite know what was going on, but we had some experience.

Russell’s note continues:

I also have to mostly agree with you wrt to this: “The null hypothesis, I think, would be that yeah, yes, no, oh, etc. each has its own function, and speakers emit instances of such words randomly as functionally appropriate.” In all the cases of “yeah-no” (and “no-yeah”) that I’ve looked at (mostly switchboard and fisher transcripts, also some multi-party meeting recordings) you can identify a function that each of the yeas and nos has, and they correspond almost exactly to functions that they have -individually-. It just might be that certain situations “call for” combinations of these uses, and so you get more yeah-nos than you might expect. But it’s not really much different, I think, from other combinations like “oh no” and “so yeah” – it’s just that the canonical meanings of “yeah” and “no” are antonymic, so we might wish to attribute the whole collocation with some special meaning before checking all the
facts.

I’m working on this stuff for one of my qual papers – look forward to all the answers being laid out therein. (he said sarcastically).

Russell added in a follow-up email:

I just noticed your reporting of Justin Levitt’s observation: “I’ll just end by noting that I hear “I mean” following “yeah, no” a whole lot. Maybe this indicates people are aware of the ambiguity? I certainly say “yeah, no, I mean I liked it, but…””

This is really great, because it corroborates Schegloff’s analysis of this particular use of “no” (to introduce corrections of misunderstandings, to put it grossly) – which he says is often followed by some indication of a correction, such as “I mean.”

That’s Emanuel “Manny” Schegloff, who has written extensively on conversational corrections over the past 30 years. In fact, this is almost the 30th anniversary of Emanuel Schegloff, Gail Jefferson and Harvey Sacks, “The Preference for Self-Correction in the Organization of Repair in Conversation“, Language 53(2): 361-392, 1977.

I also need to point out that there’s a band named “yeah NO“, founded in 1996.

I hope you don’t mind uninvited responses from strangers to your very interesting blog, but, given that you point this out, I thought you might be interested to know there was a band called “Yeah Yeah Noh” working out of Leicester between 1984 and 1986, sufficiently well thought of to have had a compilation album issued twenty years later. (I know this since the guitar player is my cousin). I have no idea of the linguistic origins of their name.

?I never talked much about how I fell in love with John. And I certainly didn?t tell him how I felt. It was not a convenient time for me to fall in love with him, and it was not a convenient time for him to fall in love with me. One morning, around four o?clock, I drove my car almost as fast as I could. I thought, ?Why am I on the road at this time of night?? I felt miserable and it was clear to me: I am falling in love with someone with whom I have no right to fall in love. He was afraid of his way of life. So I thought, ?I can?t fall in love with this man, but he?s like a ring of fire.? These words, spoken in 2000 by the singer June Carter in the magazine Rolling Stone, refer to how he composed the famous Ring of Fire, the song that in 1963 popularized who five years later would become her third husband, Johnny Cash. That song, originally recorded by his sister Anita Carter, was about a forbidden love predestined to happen.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=It7107ELQvY

July 7, 1956. June, who was then accompanying her first husband Carl Smith on guitar, ran into Cash backstage at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. She knew exactly who Johnny was because weeks before, while on tour with Elvis Presley himself, he had listened to his first hits several times on a jukebox. Cry! Cry! Cry! and I Walk the Line. He, likewise, was also knowledgeable about June?s trajectory because from a very young age he grew up with the music of his influential family, The Carter Family. ?I can?t remember anything else we talked about except his eyes. Those black eyes that shone like marbles ?, wrote June in the box set notes Love, God, Murder. What he forgot to tell is that in that first meeting the artist already asked him to marry him. Although it was obvious that they were attracted to each other, for all practical purposes theirs was impossible because they were both married. It is true that June in that same 1956 would end up divorcing Smith, but the following year she did not hesitate to step on the altar for the second time with the American football player Edwin ?Rip? Nix.

Cash, for his part, had been married to Vivian Liberto since 1954, a young woman who did not welcome her husband?s rise in the media and, consequently, who spent long periods away from home neglecting their four daughters: Rosanne, Kathy, Cindy and Tara. Those days were undoubtedly Johnny?s wildest. From the mid-fifties to well into the sixties his addiction to amphetamines and barbiturates was uncontrollable. In 1965, he was even arrested in El Paso after trying without success to enter the United States 669 ephedrine tablets and 475 anxiolytics that he had bought in Mexico. ?It was a bag of bones. He looked like death walking and he knew it. There was a violent side to that person ?, he is heard confessing to himself about the spiral of self-destruction into which he fell in the documentary The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash, released last year on YouTube Premium.

Vivian not only suffered in silence from the excesses of the man she loved, but also mistrusted his loyalty. Reasons were not lacking. Especially after June joined their band in 1962, the starting point where they secretly started a romance behind their partners? backs such as affirms Julie Chadwick in the book The Man Who Carried Cash, centered on the figure of the only person with knowledge of the facts, his manager Saul Holiff. ?He should have been relentless to save the marriage. As implacable as June was to destroy it ?, Vivian herself would write in her memories I Walked The Line: My Life With Johnny. EIn 1966 she filed for divorce and June filed for Edwin. With the signed paperwork, of course, they finally freed themselves from their respective partners to face a future together. However, not everything was as rosy as Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon made us see in the biopic On The Tightrope.

The film told us how June fought with all her might to get Cash away from drugs and, precisely, ended with a recreation of that February 22, 1968 in which the star, before 7,000 spectators, took advantage of a concert in Canada to ask her to marry him. They finally got married a few days later, on March 1. However, their union was anything but idyllic. Or, at least, that is what is gleaned from various testimonials. For example, there is that of the journalist Robert Hilburn, who investigating in the face of his book Johnny Cash: The Life discovered A murky episode: ?I thought I knew Johnny Cash, but I didn?t know that things had gotten so dark. June was pregnant with John?s son, John Carter. They had married in ?68, this happened in ?69 and the child was born in ?70. June, while pregnant, learns that John had or had had an affair with his sister Anita. During that time John would have relationships with other women, and one of them was Anita ?.

Nor should we ignore the dirty laundry that their first son in common, the aforementioned John Carter, confessed in Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash. Throughout those pages, he explained that, although the story of his parents seemed like a fairy tale to the gallery, ?the reality is that the suffering continued and worsened, if anything, over the years.? To give you an idea: after several health problems, Cash again fell into the abuse of anxiolytics and entered the Betty Ford Center on several occasions; Money was scarce in the family because it was wasted in a big way and, in the eighties, the decade in which his father?s recording career hit rock bottom, they had no choice but to sell a large part of their jewelry in order to pay for domestic service. In any case, what is most surprising is the unpublished portrait that he traces of his mother June, of whom he affirms that she was a compulsive shopper, that she also had a severe problem with pills and, in addition, that on many occasions she became paranoid because she was afraid that her husband was unfaithful to her again.

Even with those, June and Johnny remained together until 2003, the year they both died just four months apart. Their long-standing relationship, although one might think otherwise, never faded. Proof of this is in the paper that Cash wrote to his wife in 1994 on the occasion of their 65th anniversary: ???Happy Birthday Princess. We get old and get used to each other. We think alike. We read our minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we get a little irritated. Maybe sometimes it is taken for granted. But every now and then, like today, I meditate on that and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I have ever known. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me to be better. You are the object of my desire, the # 1 earthly reason for my existence. I love you a lot. Happy Birthday Princess?. As Cash himself added in Rolling Stone three years before he passed away: ?Here is unconditional love. You hear that phrase a lot, but it?s real with me and her. She loves me despite everything, despite myself. She has saved my life more than once. She has always been there with her love, and certainly, she has made me forget the pain for a long time, many times. When it gets dark, and everyone goes home and the lights are out, it?s just me and her.

The complicity between them was also noticeable on stage. Photo: Getty

It is true that June in that same 1956 would end up divorcing Smith, but the following year she did not hesitate to step on the altar for the second time with the American football player Edwin ?Rip? Nix.

Cash, for his part, had been married to Vivian Liberto since 1954, a young woman who did not welcome her husband?s rise in the media and, consequently, who spent long periods away from home neglecting their four daughters: Rosanne, Kathy, Cindy and Tara. Those days were undoubtedly Johnny?s wildest. From the mid-fifties to well into the sixties his addiction to amphetamines and barbiturates was uncontrollable. In 1965, he was even arrested in El Paso after trying without success to enter the United States 669 ephedrine tablets and 475 anxiolytics that he had bought in Mexico. ?It was a bag of bones. He looked like death walking and he knew it. There was a violent side to that person ?, he is heard confessing to himself about the spiral of self-destruction into which he fell in the documentary The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash, released last year on YouTube Premium.

Vivian not only suffered in silence from the excesses of the man she loved, but also mistrusted his loyalty. Reasons were not lacking. Especially after June joined their band in 1962, the starting point where they secretly started a romance behind their partners? backs such as affirms Julie Chadwick in the book The Man Who Carried Cash, centered on the figure of the only person with knowledge of the facts, his manager Saul Holiff. ?He should have been relentless to save the marriage. As implacable as June was to destroy it ?, Vivian herself would write in her memories I Walked The Line: My Life With Johnny. EIn 1966 she filed for divorce and June filed for Edwin. With the signed paperwork, of course, they finally freed themselves from their respective partners to face a future together. However, not everything was as rosy as Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon made us see in the biopic On The Tightrope.

The film told us how June fought with all her might to get Cash away from drugs and, precisely, ended with a recreation of that February 22, 1968 in which the star, before 7,000 spectators, took advantage of a concert in Canada to ask her to marry him. They finally got married a few days later, on March 1. However, their union was anything but idyllic. Or, at least, that is what is gleaned from various testimonials. For example, there is that of the journalist Robert Hilburn, who investigating in the face of his book Johnny Cash: The Life discovered A murky episode: ?I thought I knew Johnny Cash, but I didn?t know that things had gotten so dark. June was pregnant with John?s son, John Carter. They had married in ?68, this happened in ?69 and the child was born in ?70. June, while pregnant, learns that John had or had had an affair with his sister Anita. During that time John would have relationships with other women, and one of them was Anita ?.

Nor should we ignore the dirty laundry that their first son in common, the aforementioned John Carter, confessed in Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash. Throughout those pages, he explained that, although the story of his parents seemed like a fairy tale to the gallery, ?the reality is that the suffering continued and worsened, if anything, over the years.? To give you an idea: after several health problems, Cash again fell into the abuse of anxiolytics and entered the Betty Ford Center on several occasions; Money was scarce in the family because it was wasted in a big way and, in the eighties, the decade in which his father?s recording career hit rock bottom, they had no choice but to sell a large part of their jewelry in order to pay for domestic service. In any case, what is most surprising is the unpublished portrait that he traces of his mother June, of whom he affirms that she was a compulsive shopper, that she also had a severe problem with pills and, in addition, that on many occasions she became paranoid because she was afraid that her husband was unfaithful to her again.

Even with those, June and Johnny remained together until 2003, the year they both died just four months apart. Their long-standing relationship, although one might think otherwise, never faded. Proof of this is in the paper that Cash wrote to his wife in 1994 on the occasion of their 65th anniversary: ???Happy Birthday Princess. We get old and get used to each other. We think alike. We read our minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we get a little irritated. Maybe sometimes it is taken for granted. But every now and then, like today, I meditate on that and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I have ever known. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me to be better. You are the object of my desire, the # 1 earthly reason for my existence. I love you a lot. Happy Birthday Princess?. As Cash himself added in Rolling Stone three years before he passed away: ?Here is unconditional love. You hear that phrase a lot, but it?s real with me and her. She loves me despite everything, despite myself. She has saved my life more than once. She has always been there with her love, and certainly, she has made me forget the pain for a long time, many times. When it gets dark, and everyone goes home and the lights are out, it?s just me and her.

The complicity between them was also noticeable on stage. Photo: Getty

Read our ENSO Essentials & Impacts pages for more about El Niño and La Niña.

In mid-February, the tropical Pacific sea-surface temperatures rose slightly but remained below average and within the moderate strength La Niña range. All atmospheric parameters also indicated La Niña conditions. A new set of model runs predicts La Niña conditions are likely to dissipate by April-June 2021, with neutral conditions prevailing as we move into Northern Hemisphere summer. This outlook is similar to that of the official ENSO forecast issued January 15, which used both models and human judgement, and which carries a La Niña advisory.

ENSO Forecasts

To predict ENSO conditions, computers model the SSTs in the Niño3.4 region over the next several months. The plume graph below shows the outputs of these models, some of which use equations based on our physical understanding of the system (called dynamical models), and some of which use statistics, based on the long record of historical observations.

The La Niña odds are lower in the official probabilistic forecast issued by the U.S. Climate Prediction Center (CPC) and IRI in early February than in the mid-month IRI/CPC forecast. The earlier forecast uses human judgement in addition to model output, while the mid-month forecast relies solely on model output. More on the difference between these forecasts in this IRI Medium post.

Detroit Mercy also received favorable recognition in the following categories:

Best Colleges U.S. News & World Report National Universities 2022 badge?University of Detroit Mercy is gratified to be recognized again as one of the top 200 institutions in the country by U.S. News & World Report?s 2022 ?Best Colleges? edition,? said President Antoine M. Garibaldi. ?This national recognition confirms the exceptional quality and affordable Jesuit and Mercy education that our excellent faculty and staff provide to talented students who will soon join the ranks of more than 100,000 successful alumni around the world.?

When the pandemic began in March 2020, the higher education community across the world faced historic challenges. Detroit Mercy quickly convened a COVID-19 Task Force comprised of faculty and staff to help transition to virtual learning and focused on helping students stay on track with their studies. Additionally, the Detroit Mercy community collectively developed ways to make the University?s campuses safe as students returned this fall for in-person instruction.

That collective action has paid off immensely. The University welcomed 573 new freshmen this fall. Approximately 544 of this total will attend the McNichols Campus, which represents the largest McNichols class in the past 12 years. In total, the University anticipates about 5,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students for the fall. Last year, the University?s fall enrollment was 4,987.

The 2022 U.S. News & World Report rankings once again reaffirm the quality of Detroit Mercy?s education and the strength of the University?s Jesuit and Mercy traditions in helping to develop students into men and women of purpose and service. The new rankings also provide an opportunity to highlight several important initiatives that are currently underway at the University.

These initiatives include the expansive McNichols Campus Renovation Project, which will transform the northwest Detroit campus and provide an enhanced student experience. The renovated center will open in the summer of 2022 and will offer students a one-stop, state-of-the-art facility where they can complete financial aid, registration and other student services, eat, congregate and socialize. The new student union will be followed by the eventual demolition of the University?s Fisher Administration Center and Reno Hall. The multi-phase plan also includes new on-campus student apartments, greenspace on newly acquired land and a Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning, among other projects.

In July, Detroit Mercy?s College of Engineering & Science was awarded $1.12-million from the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to establish the Metro-Detroit Regional Vehicle Cybersecurity Institute, a regional-based, cybersecurity consortium. Led by Detroit Mercy, the consortium consists of multiple academic institutions in southeast Michigan and includes University of Arizona as a research partner. This consortium is designed to expand and enhance the cybersecurity engineering workforce through an applied curriculum developed in consultation with industry partners. The consortium also supports upskilling and reskilling for vehicle cybersecurity by prioritizing underrepresented populations, military personnel and veterans. Instruction began this fall.

In recent weeks, Detroit Mercy also implemented new academic programs that fit well with industry and student needs and interest. These programs include

These milestones, coupled with the undergraduate tuition reset in 2017 that lowered tuition from $41,000 to $28,000, and the graduate tuition reset in 2019 for MBA, Master of Community Development and graduate programs in Architecture, Nursing and Engineering, make the institution?s nationally ranked, Jesuit and Mercy education affordable for all students.

Since 2020, Detroit Mercy continues to be ranked among the best institutions in the national universities category. Prior to 2020, Detroit Mercy was ranked in the top Midwest regional universities category by U.S. News & World Report for more than 18 consecutive years.

BOULDER, CO (June 22, 2021) ? The Effect of Constitutional Provisions on Education Policy and Outcomes, a recent report from the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, examines the potential effects of amending education clauses contained in states? constitutions.

Bruce D. Baker of Rutgers University reviewed the report and found its conclusions to be overly simplistic, despite using excessively complex analyses to make its case.

The apparent intent of the Federal Reserve Bank report is to provide an empirical justification for amending the education clause of Minnesota?s constitution. Specifically, the report lays out four independent empirical analyses in an attempt to advance a theory of action for improving education quality. This theory of action asserts that amending these education clauses to include strong language regarding a legislative duty to fund schools leads to increased citizen leverage, potential judicial intervention, and adopted legislation?all of which lead to better school quality and student outcomes.

Unfortunately, the four analyses presented in the report use methods and models that exceed the capacity and quality of the data. In addition, these methods and models are inadequately linked to one another or to the theory of action.

Professor Baker concludes that the report provides little evidentiary basis for the proposed theory of action or for the current campaign to amend the Minnesota constitution.

U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo of Tulsa, OK, is among 25 highly accomplished individuals who are a part of Westminster College?s three-day Hancock Symposium, Sept. 14-16, 2021.

The event will take place in a hybrid format on campus ? with off-campus guests joining virtually ? as a result of current COVID-19 precautions. Livestreaming is available on the College?s website and both its Facebook and YouTube pages.

Harjo will read poetry and perform music on Wednesday, Sept. 15, at 7 p.m. in the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury.

?We are thrilled for Joy to be joining us for this event, as she is one of many dynamic speakers that our students will have the opportunity to interact with,? says Dr. David Jones, 2021 Hancock Symposium Chair. ?Given the timely nature of this year?s topic, everyone should find several engaging sessions to attend.?

Alumni Speakers

The packed three-day schedule includes a variety of Westminster alumni, including Shauna Aminath, ?08, who has repeatedly made the news and most recently made international headlines on May 5 after being appointed Minister of Environment, Climate Change, and Technology for the Republic of Maldives. Aminath will discuss ?Environmental Policy Where It Matters Most.?

Other alumni speakers include R. ?Flanny? Flanigan, ?12; Amy Laurel Fluker, PhD, ?08; Colin Kerr, ?06; Janice Mathews-Gordon, ?81; Hassaan Sipra, ?11 ???; Mahogany Thomas, ?13; and Donald Wood, ?00 ??.

Other Speakers: A Pfizer Scientist, an Olympic Bronze Medalist, a Gaming Expert, and Much More

Jones stresses there is a little bit of something for everyone in this year?s Symposium, from scientists to artists to business and financial experts, including a recent addition to the speaker lineup: Brian Wesbury, Chief Economist with First Trust Advisors, LP.

The majority of the presentations kick off at 9 a.m. on Sept. 15 in Champ Auditorium with noted plenary speaker Justin Sperry, PhD, Vice President of Technology and Innovation for Biotherapeutics and Vaccines and head of Pfizer?s St. Louis R&D operations.

Sperry?s presentation, ?Past, Present, and Future Insights into the COVID-19 Vaccine,? is central to this year?s Symposium theme, ?Finding Opportunity in the Age of Disruption.?

The Symposium will also feature lectures by two-time World Wrestling Champion and Olympic Bronze Medalist J?Den Cox, a native of Columbia, MO. Cox will present ?Taking a Stand: Moving Beyond BLM to Equity for All.?

Students will particularly want to catch gaming expert Abbie Heppe give her presentation on ?Bringing the Outdoors into Your Living Room.? The Director of Live Service for Media Molecule will focus on how the company pivoted during COVID-19 to bring events directly to players in their own homes.

Ultimately, Jones says, speaker presentations should be highly educational, and the campus community can sincerely look forward to classes being suspended during the event so everyone can view the presentations.

?2020 was truly a year of critical disruptions, in public health, education, race relations, and politics, to name a few, and many remain with us today,? Jones reflects. ?We have invited speakers from around the world to help us make sense of what happened and, more importantly, to help us find opportunity in the challenges to move forward with creativity and innovation.?

Launched in 2006, the Hancock Symposium is the College?s signature event, offering a highly diverse group of guest lecturers, panel discussions, and workshops on a particular subject of global interest. The Symposium is funded in perpetuity by a generous gift from alumnus David Hancock, ?67 FIJI, of Kansas City, MO.
