The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology has been awarded a $150,000 Museums for America Grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services. Over the next two years, staffers will catalog, document, inventory, and photograph the Peabody’s most important archaeological collections with the grant.“Our collection will be more accessible to researchers, especially educators,” said Senior Collections Manager David DeBono Schafer, who will manage the project. “These are among our most requested materials. Now researchers will be able to quickly determine exactly which archaeological objects are in the collection.”The collection of approximately 20,000 objects includes stone tools from the Leakey excavations in Africa, organic archaeological materials (such as textiles, wood, leather, and basketry), ceramics from the American Southwest, and many historic artifacts from three decades’ excavations in Harvard Yard.
VESTAL (WBNG) — The Binghamton men’s basketball team is taking part in a movement much bigger than the game itself. Dempsey has been using this time to have conversations with his players, ones that may be uncomfortable, but are necessary. “They’re not just basketball players, not that they ever were, but they have more of a platform now than ever. We want to encourage them to use that in a positive and productive way.” As the leader of a D1 program, Dempsey is using his voice and is encouraging his players to do the same. The nine men’s basketball coaches of the America East Conference committed to give players Election Day 2020 off the court. A small step, setting a national example. “We felt it was important to come together as a group, and put a couple of action items behind our words. As division one players and coaches, we recognize that we need to be more outspoken about our goal of living in a society where equality is a priority,” says Dempsey. Dempsey says the goal isn’t to influence his players who to vote for, but rather to encourage them to make their vote count. “They have the freedom to vote for whoever they choose, and we want to encourage them to stand up and be counted, and exercise that right.” Now, the NCAA is now encouraging all member schools to grant athletes a day off from athletic activity on November 3. “If you’re going to be truly a team, truly a family you’re always preaching, than you have to understand what’s important to your teammates, and you have to try and come together to support each other.” In addition to giving athletes Election Day 2020 off, each school in the America East will host an anti-racism event at a home game this season.
“I really didn’t understand what fame was and I didn’t understand what being in a giant hit was, and I didn’t understand what a giant hit Titanic was compared to other giant hits,” he said at the time. “There was no rule book. There was nobody to navigate me through the experience of being watched all the time and nobody to tell me how to be normal when everybody is acting and looking at me differently.”The Django Unchained actor added, “Look, if you’re not careful about it, it can develop into a social anxiety. It’s like, what’s going to happen, what photographer is going to jump out where, what kind of thing am I being set up for? You try to talk yourself out of it, but you’re never used to it.”Since 2017, the Aviator star has been dating actress Camila Morrone. An insider told Us Weekly in 2018 that the duo are “very in love and serious” and that the couple have “talked about getting engaged.”- Advertisement – The Revenant actor has utilized very unique methods to hide from the paparazzi while in public through the years. When he attended a Los Angeles Lakers game in 2019, he opted to wear black sunglasses beneath a blue Los Angeles Dodgers hat while indoors. A decade earlier, the acclaimed actor ducked down in a London taxicab while covering most of his face with a black hoodie.DiCaprio has not shied away from sharing the downsides of fame. In an Esquire profile in 2016, the Wolf of Wall Street star opened up about gaining recognition early in his career.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Scroll through the photos below to see all of the times DiCaprio tried to hide in plain sight — and failed miserably. It can’t be easy being one of the most famous faces on the planet. Leonardo DiCaprio’s A-list status has naturally caused him to want to keep to himself — but he’s not always successful.Someone of DiCaprio’s prestige, a sought-after movie star with seven Academy Award nominations and one win under his belt, is understandably a person of public interest. His romantic relationships, friendships and beyond have garnered an abundance of headlines, but he’s less than interested in having his entire life up for public display.- Advertisement –
Spanish veteran Carlos Sainz stretched his lead atop the overall Dakar Rally standings by winning the 10th stage through the dunes of Saudi Arabia’s Empty Quarter on Wednesday. Dakar Rally debutant Fernando Alonso, the two-time former Formula One champion, lost more than an hour on stage 10 after double rolling his Toyota, an accident that saw the Spaniard carry on driving with no windscreen The 57-year-old Mini driver clocked 2hr 03min 43sec on a stage shortened by high winds to a 233km special between Haradh and Shubaytah, finishing ahead of Poland’s Jakub Przygonski (mini) and South African Giniel de Villier (Toyota). Sainz took full advantage of navigational problems by closest rivals Nasser Al-Attiyah, the defending champion, and France’s ‘Mr. Dakar’, Stephane Peterhansel. Peterhansel, who has won the Dakar 13 times (seven times in a car and six times on a bike), finished 11min 48sec off Sainz’s pace, while Qatar’s Al-Attiyah was further back, at 17:46. The result means Sainz, with two stages to go, now sits 18:10 ahead of Al-Attiyah and 18:26 in front of Peterhansel. “It was a dangerous stage with lots of difficult dunes,” Peterhansel said. “Several kilometres before the neutralised section, we got completely lost with Nasser and other drivers. Some drivers got there at the right time, when we eventually found the right way and gained a lot of time. “In the end, it’s a good stage for my team-mate Carlos who has opened up a gap on Nasser, whilst we have got a bit closer to Nasser even if we are still in third position.” Dakar debutant Fernando Alonso, the two-time former Formula One champion, lost more than an hour after double rolling his Toyota, an accident that saw the Spaniard carry on driving with no windscreen. American Ricky Brabec increased his lead in the general standings of the motorbike category with a second-placed finish.

Watford vs. Newcastle Venue: Vicarage Road Kick off: 12:30PMBuoyed by a much-needed win last time out, Watford will be looking to climb clear of the Premier League relegation zone when they host Newcastle United at lunchtime. The Hornets beat bottom side Norwich City in midweek and are four points above the drop, while Newcastle – thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City – are jostling for position in mid-table.Nigel Pearson praised the “strength” of his Watford side to dig deep against doomed Norwich and pick up all three points in a vital 2-1 win at Vicarage Road.That win, which came courtesy of Danny Welbeck’s spectacular overhead kick, ended the Hornets’ six-game wait for a victory in the Premier League.After beating Liverpool 3-0 at the end of February to claim one of the shock results of this or any other top-flight campaign, Watford accrued one point from the next 15 available.It was a run that left Pearson’s men at serious risk of dropping into the Championship, but the win over Norwich gives them a healthy four-point buffer on the two sides below them. However, Aston Villa and Bournemouth do still have a game in hand to play on Thursday, against Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.Watford still have work to do if they are to stay afloat, and with Manchester City and Arsenal to face in their last two games they could do with a victory on Saturday.There is perhaps no kinder fixture for Watford than the visit of Newcastle, either, with United stuck in mid-table and possibly already thinking of their shortened summer break.Steve Bruce’s men won three games in a row either side of the coronavirus-enforced hiatus to ensure that relegation would not be a concern for them this season.Results since then have been largely mixed, with a 4-1 away win at Bournemouth coming a week before a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Man City, summing up their inconsistent nature. United were truly dreadful at the Etihad Stadium and could have lost by even more in the end, with the Magpies struggling to adapt to a five-at-the-back system.Bruce was without Allan Saint-Maximin, in fairness, while Jamaal Lascelles, Andy Carroll and Isaac Hayden were also absent from the matchday squad due to injury.Still, there can be no excuse for the type of display produced by the Toon and they have to quickly pick themselves up for this trip to Hertfordshire.Watford possible XI: Foster, Femenia, Kabasele, Dawson, Masina, Capoue, Hughes, Sarr, Doucoure, Welbeck, Deeney. Newcastle possible XI: Dubravka, Manquillo, Schar, Fernandez, Rose, Ritchie, Longstaff, Shelvey, Joelinton, Almiron, Gayle.RelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Newcastle set to extend winning streak Ings not interested in leaving Saints, Southampton manager says Tags: Newcastle UnitedPremier LeagueVicarage RoadWatford
