Credit: CaltechCaltech announced on Wednesday its 2021 commencement keynote speaker will be Norman R. Augustine, a longtime leader in the aerospace industry. The commencement ceremony is scheduled for Friday, June 11.Augustine has served as assistant secretary of the Army and undersecretary of the Army, been awarded the Department of Defense Civilian Distinguished Service Medal five times, is a former president of the American Red Cross, and in the civilian world led Martin Marietta Corp. through its merger with the Lockheed Corp. to form the aerospace and defense company Lockheed Martin.This year’s commencement stirred controversy as some Caltech students have advocated for an in-person event.More than 500 Caltech students signed a petition calling for a more-traditional in-person graduation and said they weren’t satisfied with a compromise offered by the school to have a limited gathering of 300 students on-campus to view the virtual commencement ceremony.Wednesday’s announcement confirmed Caltech plans to proceed with the limited in-person gathering.The Institute said it will host an in-person gathering on June 11 that will allow bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree candidates to celebrate together on campus in the company of their peers and to watch the virtual commencement ceremony outdoors. In accordance with public health requirements, Caltech said, this event will be open only to pre-registered, fully vaccinated graduating students. Attendees will have access to staged photo areas for individual and group pictures. In a letter to the community, Rosenbaum, Provost David A. Tirrell, and Vice President for Student Affairs Kevin M. Gilmartin explained that the in-person celebration was created as the result of input from the Caltech community.“We have heard very clearly from our student leaders and representatives that what is most valued this June is the opportunity for our graduating students to return to campus and to safely gather with one another to celebrate their achievements,” they wrote.The degree conferral and graduation ceremony will be virtual and include remarks from Caltech president Thomas F. Rosenbaum and Board of Trustees chair David Lee, a keynote address, remarks from notable alumni, and the conferral of undergraduate and graduate degrees. Each student will be recognized individually as their name is read alongside the presentation of a personalized slide.Following Augustine’s keynote address, five notable Caltech alumni will each offer remarks on the theme of “resilience”:Maryam Ali (BS ’05) medical writer, Medtronic NeurovascularChristopher Blaszczak-Boxe (MS ’01, ’02, PhD ’05), assistant professor, Medgar Evers College, CUNYMorgan L. Cable (PhD ’10), Astrobiology and Ocean Worlds Group supervisor, NASA Jet Propulsion LaboratoryTara Gomez-Hampton (PhD ’11), associate director of medical affairs, Biosense Webster, Inc.Mason Smith (BS ’09), software developer, TGS Management CompanyFriends and family of Caltech graduates are encouraged to organize their own watch parties to view the June 11 broadcast of the virtual commencement ceremony and are invited to join President Rosenbaum and Katherine T. Faber, Simon Ramo Professor of Materials Science, for a virtual toast to celebrate the new graduates and their families immediately following the commencement ceremony, from 11:30 a.m. to noon. All of the graduates who are on campus for the commencement screening event and celebration will join the virtual champagne toast to connect with their classmates across the globe.More details can be found on commencement.caltech.edu.

It is a period that is not much explored or understood,” stated archaeologist Sarah McCutcheon.Kilmallock’s town walls, 70 per cent of which remain standing today, make it one of Ireland’s most intact walled towns. Hundreds of metres of the town’s medieval walls have been restored in recent years.Brian Hodkinson of Limerick Museum said that the event would raise the profile of the late medieval remains within the environs, encourage repeat visits and establish Limerick city, Kilmallock and other walled towns firmly on the itinerary of cultural tourism.

Opening its Big East slate for the 34th and final time, Syracuse displayed a prowess that left even its head coach, with his 903 career wins, surprised as the Orange (13-1, 1-0 Big East) crushed the Scarlet Knights (9-3, 0-1) 78-53.“We were playing well and then we started to play even better,” head coach Jim Boeheim said. “We made great decisions.”With his 903rd career victory, Boeheim moves into second place all-time in wins, surpassing Bob Knight’s 902. For most of this one, Boeheim could breathe easily, as Syracuse turned a two-point deficit into a blowout with a 21-0 run to close out the first half. Syracuse’s stingy interior defense combined with efficient transition offense allowed the Orange to win easily, its 13th consecutive win in the series against Rutgers.Rutgers began the game hot from 3-point range, draining four of its first seven attempts. Three of those came from Eli Carter, who led Rutgers with 19 points. It was his runner from the free-throw line that gave the Scarlet Knights their first lead, 20-18 with 8:19 to play in the first half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt was their only lead, as Rutgers made just two 3s the rest of the game. And SU’s defense was a wall inside.“We did a good job down low inside,” Boeheim said. “Trapping.”Syracuse recorded seven blocks in the first half, nearly equaling its per-game average of 7.5. With the score knotted at 20, Rutgers forward Wally Judge held the ball down low. Soon the extended arms of James Southerland and Rakeem Christmas trapped him. Judge managed to fling a wild, loopy pass out to the perimeter, but when forward Dane Miller tried bringing the ball back into the middle, Christmas swatted away his futile attempt.Syracuse’s guards got things going at the other end. Michael Carter-Williams grabbed a rebound off of a Rutgers miss and sped up the court. He drove down the left side of the paint and used his size to his advantage, extending his arm past the reach of the 6-foot-2 Carter for a layup to give SU a 28-20 lead.Rutgers head coach Mike Rice, returning from a three-game suspension, called two timeouts in a 66-second span, to no avail. Syracuse scored four points in between timeouts, with a Triche layup inside giving the Orange a 30-20 lead.After the second timeout, Carter-Williams came off of the court smiling and bobbing his head. Triche led the Orange with 25 points, the most he’s had since he scored 27 against Oakland in his freshman season. Carter-Williams recorded 12 points and 10 assists for SU.“We’re unstoppable if we’re able to rebound the ball,” Triche said. “I think that’s big, either rebound the ball or get steals. It’s going to lead to getting us in transition.”Syracuse’s lead only grew in the second half, as the Orange scored the first basket with a Carter-Williams 3-pointer. Rutgers ended its scoring drought less than a minute into the half, but never challenged.Back-to-back 3-pointers from Triche gave the Orange its largest lead of the game, 62-33, with 12:26 to play. The second came on a beautiful drive and dish from Carter-Williams, leaving Triche with plenty of room in front of him on the left wing.The Orange continued to play with energy even with its huge lead, sparked by a run that was one of its most dominant stretches of play this season — reminiscent of the runs that last year’s squad went on consistently on its way to the Elite Eight.“Everyone was contributing,” Carter-Williams said. “Our bigs did a great job of blocking shots and getting rebounds and the wings did a great job running the floor. And Brandon and I did a great job getting them the ball.“It was definitely a team effort and it was one of our peaks this year.” Comments

Here are the five keys that would allow the Orange to sweep its first season series with the No. 5 Blue Devils.No. 1 C.J.’s slumpThe last time C.J. Fair faced Duke, he played the best game of his career. Fair took over in the second half, hitting anything and everything en route to a career-high 28 points. Since then, though, he’s been dreadful. Fair is shooting 35.4 percent in the last five games, including a 7-for-23 performance in SU’s 62-59 overtime loss to Boston College on Wednesday. If the Orange is to pull off the upset in Cameron, it’ll need a rejuvenated and efficient senior leader.No. 2 Duke’s 3-point shootingThis season, Jim Boeheim has played most opponents to take 3-pointers. It’s a dare of sorts, but the Blue Devils aren’t most opponents. With four marksmen who connect on more than 40 percent of their 3-point attempts, Duke can shred the Orange from beyond the arc. Andre Dawkins (4), Rasheed Sulaimon (4), Tyler Thornton (3) and Rodney Hood (3) spearheaded the Blue Devils’ efforts from long range in the first matchup as the team ultimately finished 15-of-36. The Orange guards and wings will have to close out quickly to keep that quartet from a repeat outing.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNo. 3 Jostling with JabariThe Orange handled Jabari Parker well on Feb. 1. Boeheim kept his centers back to shade Parker on the baseline while playing off Amile Jefferson in the high post. The result was a frustrated Parker, who scored 15 points but fouled out late in regulation. This time, Parker could see more time in the high post. If that’s the case, Boeheim will need to adjust accordingly and bring Rakeem Christmas or Baye Moussa Keita forward.No. 4 Center playSpeaking of the centers, Christmas will be relied on for a bounce-back performance after the BC game. Christmas is likely the best post player on the court and will need to play like it for SU to win. He blocked Parker three times (including a nasty denial in transition) in the first matchup, but if Parker is moved to the high post, he’ll have to do a lot more to not only keep the sensational freshman in check, but also to stay out of foul trouble. With Keita playing only two minutes against the Eagles, it’s likely he’s still far from 100 percent.No. 5 Closing strongThose four keys and any other factors aside, the success of this Syracuse team is built on efficiency in the final five minutes. That’s how SU has won about half of its games this year. But against Boston College, and even N.C. State before that, the Orange hasn’t turned into the well-oiled machine that beat Duke once and Pittsburgh twice. No matter what else happens in the first 35 minutes, if Syracuse doesn’t play its best ball in the final possessions, it can’t win. Comments
