Facebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Saint Martin’s University Salgado Maranhão remained illiterate until age 15, spending most of his youth working on his family’s isolated subsistence farm in rural, northeastern Brazil. Now, he is one of Brazil’s most celebrated poets and will be presenting a reading of his work at Saint Martin’s University.Accompanied by Alexis Levitin, a translator of Portuguese poetry, award-winning poet Maranhão will read from two of his collections, “Blood of the Sun” and “Tiger Fur,” at the next Robert A. Harvie Social Justice Lecture. The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place April 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the University’s Norman Worthington Conference Center.The two men are coming to campus as part of a West Coast tour to promote Maranhão’s work that extends from San Diego, California, to Seattle, says Jamie Olson, Ph.D., associate professor of English, who has counted Levitin among his colleagues for a number of years.“I have seen Salgado and Alexis read their poems and translations in person. To say the least, they are a dynamic pair,” Olson says. “Salgado’s poems bring together the earthy, the political and the metaphysical, and Alexis translates him beautifully.”Maranhão explains in an autobiographical essay for Milkweed Editions that as he was growing up, he “had to work in the fields like everyone else to earn a living…This was hard, hard work and quite distant from poetry.”“Poetry entered my life in an unexpected way,” he explains in the essay. “I lived in close proximity to poetry all my childhood because of the repentistas, the travelling singers and reciters of improvisatory poetry that were typical of the northeast of Brazil when I was growing up.” His constant contact with the repintistas, who Maranhão likens to “modern-day troubadours,” had a cumulative effect on him.In addition to the English Department and the Harvie lecture series, sponsors of the reading by Maranhão and Levitin are the Office of the President, Office of the Provost, the College of Arts and Sciences, Sigma Tau Delta honor society and Saint Martin’s Abbey.The Robert A. Harvie Social Justice Lecture Series was created by Saint Martin’s University Professor of Criminal Justice Robert Hauhart, Ph.D., J.D., to raise awareness of social justice issues within the community. The series honors the work of Robert A. Harvie, J.D., former professor and chair of the Department of Criminal Justice at Saint Martin’s.

Facebook160Tweet0Pin0Submitted by United State Department of TransportationThe U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) today announced a $6.9 million grant award to Intercity Transit in Olympia, Washington, as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, signed by President Donald J. Trump on March 27, 2020. Intercity Transit will use the grant funds for operating assistance, paratransit service, preventive maintenance, project administration, security services and security equipment in order to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 public health emergency. See FTA’s apportionment tables for the totals apportioned to each area. (This funding is based on the agency’s current request and may not represent the full amount the agency will receive.)“This historic $25 billion in grant funding will ensure our nation’s public transportation systems can continue to provide services to the millions of Americans who continue to depend on them,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.“We know that many of our nation’s public transportation systems are facing extraordinary challenges and these funds will go a long way to assisting our transit industry partners in battling COVID-19,” said FTA Acting Administrator K. Jane Williams. “These federal funds will support operating assistance to transit agencies of all sizes providing essential travel and supporting transit workers across the country who are unable to work because of the public health emergency.”In addition to the CARES Act funding, FTA issued a Safety Advisory that prompts transit agencies to develop and implement policies and procedures regarding face coverings and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces, physical separation, and hand hygiene consistent with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidance. CARES Act funding can be used to cover 100 percent of these costs.

COLIN cowherd alabama walmartSince Duke’s Sweet 16 loss to Oregon on Thursday night, there’s been plenty of chatter about Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski’s conversation with Oregon’s Dillon Brooks and his initial denial that he reprimanded Brooks for hitting a meaningless three-pointer in the final seconds to make the score 82-68. Krzyzewski apologized over the weekend for not being truthful about his exchange with Brooks but there were some who still felt disappointed with what he did. Count Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd among them. Cowherd spoke on his show today and said he felt “bummed” that Krzyzewski lied, saying he had held the coach to a higher standard.

WINNIPEG – Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister is calling for more cooler heads and less overheated rhetoric in the burgeoning aerospace trade war centred around Boeing and Bombardier.It was a plea that was immediately rebuffed by Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard who has said “not a bolt, not a part, of course not a plane of Boeing” should enter Canada until the conflict is resolved.“I will not tone down. I will tone up if I need to do it,” Couillard said Thursday at Bombardier’s assembly plant in Mirabel, north of Montreal. “I will fight for Quebec.”The Quebec premier has called on Ottawa to take a hard line against Boeing after the U.S. Department of Commerce proposed a hefty 219 per cent duty on jets manufactured by rival Bombardier.The department’s preliminary findings say Bombardier benefited from improper government subsidies, giving it an unfair advantage when selling its C-Series jets south of the border.“It’s an unacceptable attack towards an industry, a province and a country and we shall prevail,” Couillard said.Earlier in the day, Pallister said Couillard’s emotional call for a Boeing boycott is understandable, but not helpful.“That overheated rhetoric and emotional language, though understandable because of the concerns the premier has …. is not necessarily as helpful as cooler heads and a demonstration of an understanding that our trade is a very important mutual benefit to Canadian and US economies,” Pallister said Thursday after an announcement in Morden, Man.“I would always be one who promotes open trade and encourage all to remember that there are mutual benefits in our relationships.”The Manitoba capital is home to a Boeing manufacturing facility that employs 1,400 people and is the third biggest aerospace centre in the country.Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman called Couillard’s comments unhelpful.“His comments do not appear to acknowledge the reality that Quebec is not the only province affected by this dispute,” Bowman said in a statement Thursday.“While I respect that the premier of Quebec is going to stand up for jobs in Quebec, his comments are an oversimplification of the dispute and are not helpful for the Canadian aerospace sector as a whole.”This dispute goes beyond a region of the country, he said.“Cooler heads need to prevail so we can continue to collectively find ways to grow this sector, not obstruct it.”Couillard argues the US$1 billion invested by the province in Bombardier’s C-Series program was not a subsidy and Bombardier is being targeted by its larger aerospace rival even though Boeing has also benefited from decades of government assistance.Unifor president Jerry Dias, who represents Boeing workers, said both Bombardier and Boeing receive government support. This trade dispute threatens the ability of government to support the industry, Dias said.“Boeing is playing a very dangerous game, not just for Bombardier but for themselves,” he said. “This whole thing is poisoning the well water.“If we don’t fight this now, the fallout can be just brutal.”But Pallister said the Canadian and American economies are so intertwined, he’s confident the two countries will weather the storm.“We have the strongest international co-operative relationship of any two countries in the world,” he said. “We will get through this.”— By Chinta Puxley in Edmonton, with files from Steve Lambert in Winnipeg and Ross Marowits in Montreal
