Campaign 2020 @Baruch: Baruch Previews the First 100 Days of the Biden Administration

Baruch Previews the First 100 Days of the Biden Administration

Tuesday January 19, 12:30pm(EST)

RSVP HERE

Joseph R. Biden, Jr., assumes the presidency at a time of unprecedented
stress, at the peak of a pandemic and its repercussions, civil unrest
over the results of the election, rapidly accelerating climate change,
and a host of foreign policy challenges. The administration has said
that it will focus first on four broad areas: fighting Covid-19,
restoring America’s global leadership, infrastructure, and social
justice. How likely is it that President Biden can accomplish these
goals with the narrowest possible majority in the Senate and a very
slender majority in the House? What strategies are we likely to see from
the Biden administration on migration policy, support for higher
education, global trade, workforce development, and reducing carbon
emissions? In the broadest sense, how can a presidency launched amid
such dissension develop anything resembling a governing consensus?

Panelists:
Enrique
Desmond Arias, Professor and Marxe Endowed Chair of Western Hemisphere
Affairs, Marxe School of Public and International Affairs (Marxe School)
Hector Cordero-Guzmán, Professor, Marxe School, National Academy of Public Administration

The 2021 Conference on Community College Excellence (C3E)

2020 has been a year of extraordinary challenges and adjustments that have confronted all of us, both personally and professionally. As our college community has adjusted to this new reality, some of us are surviving and some of us are thriving. While we have shared our experiences this past year in multiple forums, we are recognizing that our emotional and physical well-being has been tested as well, even if most of us have been spared the ravages of COVID-19. This conference will provide a forum for research-based and applied best practices as we’ve adapted to an online environment for all of our roles, including teaching and learning, serving our students and managing our jobs.

Presentations and forum discussions will explore the following threads:

  • Effective teaching and learning environments
  • Ensuring student success,
  • Restorative practices and
  • Building a culture of support and empowerment

We will send out weekly updates with more information, as we get closer to the conference dates.

CCNY biologist David Lohman finds Asian butterfly mimics different species as defense against predators
Many animal and insect species use Batesian mimicry – mimicking a poisonous species – as a defense against predators. The common palmfly, Elymnias hypermnestra (a species of satyrine butterfly), which is found throughout wide areas of tropical and subtropical Asia, adds a twist to this evolutionary strategy: the females evolved two distinct forms, either orange or dark brown, imitating two separate poisonous model species, Danaus or Euploea. The males are uniformly brown. A population group is either entirely brown (both males and females) or mixed (brown males and orange females).
