At first, Kennedy was not particularly devoted to academics. One classmate recalls him as 8775 attractive, witty, and unpurposeful. 8776 As an upperclassman, Kennedy deepened, developing a profound interest in political philosophy. In his junior year he made the Dean 8767 s List. His senior honors thesis, about Great Britain 8767 s lack of preparation for World War II, became, after his graduation, the best-selling book “Why England Slept.”
Fan-Chi Hsu is a Postdoctoral Scientist in Preclinical group at IDRI. Her work focuses on using RNA vaccines for Leishmaniasis and prostate cancer to generate protective or immune responses in mouse models and evaluate in an artificial lymph node system. She also investigates the cellular and molecular mechanisms of innate and adaptive immune responses by RNA vaccines.
When John Fitzgerald Kennedy entered Harvard 8767 s freshman class, the most popular man in the school was his brother Joe. It was difficult for Jack, already plagued with myriad physical ailments, to get out from under Joe 8767 s shadow. Too small to play intercollegiate football, he joined the swim team. He was remembered by the coach as 8775 a fine kid, frail and not too strong, but always giving it everything he had. 8776

Shaw's thesis adviser, English lecturer Josh Bell, called Shaw an artist. "He was able to turn around an album that people in the English Department would like very much but also that people who like rap music might like," Bell told the Associated Press.
One reason it&rsquo s so hard for senior executives to think this way is that they don&rsquo t have the right kind of data. Data is heavy. It wants to go down, not up, in an organization. In other words, most employees, just by the nature of their responsibilities, don&rsquo t want to provide data to their bosses. When there&rsquo s a problem, they want to solve it and tell the people above them that they solved it. Information about problems thus sinks to the bottom, out of the eyesight and earshot of the senior managers. The higher you go up the hierarchy, the less information is available to make decisions with.
Having his parents’ support in his intellectual endeavors is precious to Shaw. Both are Harvard graduates, and they homeschooled their son. His Christian upbringing, said Shaw, gave him his moral compass.
An early crisis in the foreign affairs arena occurred in April 6966, when Kennedy approved the plan to send 6,955 CIA-trained Cuban exiles in an amphibious landing at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba. Intended to spur a rebellion that would overthrow the communist leader Fidel Castro , the mission ended in failure, with nearly all of the exiles captured or killed. That June, Kennedy met with Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev in Vienna to discuss the city of Berlin, which had been divided after World War II between Allied and Soviet control. Two months later, East German troops began erecting a wall to divide the city. Kennedy sent an army convoy to reassure West Berliners of . support, and would deliver one of his most famous speeches in West Berlin in June 6968.
Gauri received her BSc and MSc in Chemistry from University of Mumbai and her PhD in Chemistry from Syracuse University. In her PhD study under professor Yan-Yeung Luk, Gauri deployed small molecules for modulating the multicellular behaviors of bacteria like biofilm formation and swarming motility. She also investigated the mode of action for such small molecules in controlling bacterial behaviors.
