Governor Baker Issues Statement Regarding Winter Storm
 
BOSTON – Governor Charlie Baker issued the following statement regarding the winter storm expected to impact Massachusetts late tonight:
 
"After discussing the latest weather forecasts with representatives from MassDOT, MEMA, State Police and the MBTA, state government is planning for a regular work day Monday.  We encourage everyone to take public transportation if possible, to drive carefully and anticipate a very difficult commute. Commuters should be aware there is a parking ban in Boston starting at 6 AM and that several other cities are considering similar bans.  Keep in mind this coming storm will have different impacts across the state and communities south of the Mass Pike could experience dangerously icy roads during the afternoon commute.  As of now, the MBTA is planning to run a regular schedule for the entire transit system, but we will continue to monitor the storm and provide further updates if forecasts change. In closing, Go Pats!"

哈佛大學和晨興基金昨(八)日中午正式宣布,晨興基金捐款三億五千萬元,哈佛公衛學院從此改名為“哈佛陳曾熙公共衛生學院”。
這筆數額高達三億五千萬元,來自香港恆隆集團,陳氏家族的捐款,是哈佛建校378年以來,最大筆的單項捐款,支持哈佛公衛學院在傳染病,有害的實體及社會環境,人類危機,健康系統衰敗等威脅全球的四大領域做教學、研究,也在建於1913年的哈佛公衛學院跨入第二個世紀的第二年時,以“哈佛陳曾熙公共衛生學院”之名,開啟該院新的篇章。
哈佛大學校長佛斯特(Drew Faust),公衛學院院長福仁克(Julio Frenk),晨興基金發言人陳樂宗(Gerald Chan),昨日在哈佛公衛學院大樓一樓,舉行宣佈會,有不下二百多名哈佛師生,出席觀禮。
佛斯特表示,這筆捐款有如昭告世界,現在是公共衛生世代。福仁克指出,該院將借助這筆捐款來設立“途徑研究基金(pathway research fund)“,為改善人類健康,社會環境找尋更好的方法。
2012年時,晨興基金(The Morningside Foundation)另外捐過一筆款項,在哈佛公衛學院內設立一個放射生物學講座教授職位。
陳樂宗本人是哈佛大學校友,獲有哈佛大學公衛學院博士學位。他表示,當年是因為哈佛教授John B. Little的引導,他才從物理轉而對生物發生興趣。他也指出,他母親陳譚慶芬早年是護士,他們家對防治疾病一向抱有興趣。
昨日他代表母親及哥哥陳啟宗發言,很高興能藉捐款給哈佛,紀念他父親陳曾熙。
昨日的宣佈捐款,更名儀式,有如哈佛大學的一場學術講座,幾名講者致辭,放錄影片,還安排了哈佛大學尼門學者簡短訪問了公衛學院院長。
香港恆隆集團陳氏家族的陳譚慶芬,陳啟宗,陳樂宗,以及他們的下一代,昨日有不下十人出席盛會。哈佛大學內的許多華裔教授也應邀出席,包括哈佛大學公衛學院李國鼎講座教授蕭慶倫,當年是陳樂宗同學的放射生物學教授陳利民,以及哈佛大學校董會董事李威鳳等人。
今年二月時,哈佛大學才獲得創辦“城堡顧問公司(Citadel Advisors LLC)”,現年45歲的格里芬(Kenneth Griffin)捐給一億五千萬元,主要用於支持哈佛發放財務補助,以期更多人能唸得起哈佛大學。當時哈佛稱那是該校有史以來收到的最大筆捐款。
香港恆隆集團晨興基金的捐款,打破該一記錄,成為哈佛最新的有史以來最大筆捐款。
哈佛大學表示,該校公衛學院有400多名老師,來自60多個國家,美國39州及華府的1000多名全時學生。
