Claire Burrin (Rutgers University), Windings of closed geodesics

For closed curves in the plane, the winding number is famously a homotopy invariant, but will not distinguish two curves that, say, differ by a null-homotopic loop. However, in the case of regular curves, the winding number is also a regular homotopy invariant. For a (cusped) hyperbolic hyperbolic surface equipped with a non-vanishing vector field, there is an analogous invariant. We examine growth, distribution, and density results for the number of ‘prime’ geodesics of fixed winding. This is based on joint work with Flemming von Essen.

Pipeline names Mets' Prospects of the Year

In many ways, the saga surrounding the Mets' decision to keep Peter Alonso in the Minors all year overshadowed the rather spectacular nature of his season itself. In 132 games, Alonso hit 36 home runs, including a walk-off on the final pitch of the Triple-A Las Vegas season. He knocked in 119 runs. He posted a .975 OPS. He submitted, statistically speaking, the best offensive season of any first-base prospect in the country. For that reason, Alonso was named MLB Pipeline's Mets Hitting Prospect of the Year.

“#MeToo and Epistemic Injustice” Conference

Event Date: 10/6/2018 10:00:00 AM About this interdisciplinary conference

Venues:

  • Friday, October, 5th – Roosevelt House, 47-49 East 65th St. 9:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, October 6th – Skylight Room (9100), The Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Ave. 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Over the past year, the #MeToo movement has forced into national consciousness what has long been an underground truth known by women: the horrifying pervasiveness of sexual harassment and assault as routine everyday occurrences, largely unpunished. How can one explain the resistance there has traditionally been, as recently brought out in one high-profile case after another, to taking women’s testimony seriously? Using Miranda Fricker’s innovative concept of “epistemic injustice” as a focus—the refusal to give members of subordinated groups a fair hearing—this 2-day interdisciplinary conference will examine the problem in its multiple dimensions. Eighteen theorists from a wide variety of subjects—philosophy, political theory, media studies, history, gender and women’s studies, LGBTQ theory, Africana and Native American studies, law, and disability theory—will look from their distinctive perspectives at women’s vulnerability to sexual

Multimodal Depression Detection: An Investigation of Features and Fusion Techniques for Automated Systems
  
Depression is a serious illness that affects a large portion of the world's population. Given the large effect it has on society, it is evident that depression is a serious health issue. This thesis evaluates, at length, how technology may aid in assessing depression. We present an in-depth investigation of features and fusion techniques for depression detection systems. We also present OpenMM: a novel tool for multimodal feature extraction. Lastly, we present novel techniques for multimodal fusion. The contributions of this work add considerably to our knowledge of depression detection systems and have the potential to improve future systems by incorporating that knowledge into their design.

World on Wednesday Lecture Series – Shea Tree Ecology in the Sahel Region of West Africa

The shea tree is indigenous to Africa and has been managed for millennia in agroforestry parkland systems across the Sahel-Savannah. The tree produces a fruit from which shea butter is extracted. Shea butter is a staple edible oil in Africa and is also commonly used internationally in cosmetics and as an ingredient in cocoa butter alternatives in the manufacture of chocolate. Come and learn about this amazing natural ingredient that provides an important income source for many African women and their families.

The World on Wednesday lecture series is sponsored by the Center for Global Engagement and is approved as CC Clue Credit.

Children and Justice: Unfinished Business

The Center on Media, Crime and Justice at John Jay College (CMCJ) has selected 33 journalists as Reporting Fellows for its fourth year-long program aimed at strengthening national reporting on juvenile justice.

The fellowship program, supported by The Tow Foundation and the Annie E. Casey Foundation, will be launched Thursday, Oct 4th and Friday, Oct. 5th with a symposium at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City, entitled Children and Justice: Unfinished Business.

Speakers scheduled for the symposium include: Elton Anglada, Assistant Chief of the Juvenile Unit, Philadelphia Defender’s Association;  Cara Drinan, author of “The War on Kids: How American Juvenile Justice Lost its Way; Kim Dvorchak, Executive Director, National Association of Counsel for Children; Carolyn Frazier, Children and Family Justice Center, Northwestern University; Marcy Mistrett, CEO of Campaign for Youth Justice; Vincent Schiraldi, former Commissioner, the New York City Department of Probation; and Karen Vastine, Senior Adviser to the Commissioner, Vermont Department for Children & Families.

“Over the past decade some 70 pieces of legislation in at least 36 states have enacted major reforms in areas ranging from raising the age of adult jurisdiction to removing youths from adult prisons,” said Stephen Handelman, Director of the CMCJ.

“This program is aimed at helping journalists take stock of what has been achieved so far, and get an early assessment of the work that still remains to be done.”

2019 Draft order set: Mets have No. 12 pick

Unlike in 2017, when the race for the No. 1 overall pick in the next year's Draft came down to a walk-off homer on the final day of the season, there was no such drama this summer. The Orioles, whose 115 losses were the fourth-most in modern big league history, clinched the top choice in 2019 with nine games remaining.

Energy from Unlikely Sources: Opportunities for New Organizing

For more than a quarter century, workers and the U.S. labor movement have sustained significant setbacks, including the broad expansion of “right-to-work” conditions; the increasing use by employers of vehicles that enable them to shirk standard employer responsibilities; and the Supreme Court’s tendency to prioritize employers’ property rights over worker rights. Despite these trends, 61 percent of Americans view unions favorably; organizing and unionization among young workers is surging, with three-quarters of new union members in 2017 being under 35 years old; and 2018 saw the largest wildcat strikes in decades, with teacher walkouts in West Virginia, Kentucky, Oklahoma, and Arizona challenging wage stagnation and school funding cutbacks. What does this imply about the possibilities and struggles ahead for labor? What are strategic options that would enable organized labor to succeed at mass organizing and to join forces with racial and economic justice organizations to become a movement?

David A. Kaplan–The Most Dangerous Branch: Inside the Supreme Court’s Assault on the Constitution

David A. Kaplan, former legal affairs reporter of Newsweek, will discuss his new book, The Most Dangerous Branch: Inside the Supreme Court’s Assault on the Constitution, in conversation with Burt Neuborne, the Norman Dorsen Professor of Civil Liberties and founding Legal Director of the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU Law School.

The retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, and the recent confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, have reminded us that the Court has never before been more central in American life. The justices have often ruled on the most controversial issues of our time—from abortion and same-sex marriage, to gun control, campaign finance and voting rights. The Court is so crucial that, according to polls, many voters in 2016 made their choice of presidential candidate based on whom they thought a candidate would name to the Court.

Kaplan’s new book is based on his exclusive interviews with the justices and dozens of their law clerks. He and Neuborne will discuss what Kaplan argues is the justices’ aggrandizement of power over the decades — from Roe v. Wade, to Bush v. Gore, to Citizens United, to rulings during the 2017-18 term. But the arrogance of the Court, he stresses, isn’t partisan: Conservative and liberal justices alike are guilty of overreach, a topic Kaplan and Neuborne will also address.

Nanoscience Seminar: Dawanne E. Poree, PhD, U.S. Army Research Office

  • Functional Chemistries for the Next-Generation Warfighter
  • Dawanne E. Poree, PhD, U.S. Army Research Office
  • The US Army Research Office Chemical Sciences supports research efforts to advance the knowledge and understanding of the fundamental properties and processes governing molecules and their interactions in materials and chemical systems. Within the Division, two programs are of particular interest to this audience – Polymer Chemistry and Reactive Chemical Systems.
  • The Polymer Chemistry Program seeks to understand the molecular-level link between polymer microstructure, architecture, functionality, and the ensuing macroscopic properties. Research in this Program may ultimately enable the design and synthesis of functional polymeric materials that give the Soldier new and improved protective and sensing capabilities. This Program is divided into two research thrusts: (i) Precision Polymeric Materials which supports research aimed at developing new approaches for synthesizing polymers with precisely-defined microstructure (monomer sequence and tacticity), architecture, and functional group location; and on exploring how molecular structure and composition impacts polymer assembly to enable complex structures with diverse functions; and (ii) Complex Adaptive Polymeric Systems which focuses on developing polymers that exhibit programmed molecular responses to external stimuli and exploring the assembly/incorporation of multiple responsive groups into a single polymeric materials system to engender complex responsive behavior. The Reactive Chemical Systems Program seeks to obtain a molecular level understanding of interfacial activity and dynamic nanostructured and self-assembled chemical systems. Research in this program seeks to develop novel materials and processes that enable unprecedented hazardous chemical management capabilities and Soldier survivability. This program is divided into two research thrusts: (i) Nanostructured Surface Interactions and Reactivity which seeks to gain a fundamental understanding of kinetics and mechanisms of reactions on surfaces and at interfaces; and (ii) Synthetic Molecular Systems, which focuses on exploring the properties and capabilities of self-assembled and supramolecular structures. Within these thrusts, high-risk, high-payoff research is identified and supported to pursue the Programs’ long-term goal.

Five questions the Mets face this offseason

A disappointing season ended on a high note Sunday for the Mets, whose second-half surge provided optimism that they can be far more competitive in 2019. But the team is also realistic about its chances. Outside of a rotation that led the Majors in second-half ERA, the Mets have plenty of issues to solve before Spring Training. That begins with the front office, which is about to install a new general manager for the first time in eight years. Whom the Mets choose rates as one of their five most pressing offseason questions.


2019 Draft order set: Mets have No. 12 pick

Unlike in 2017, when the race for the No. 1 overall pick in the next year's Draft came down to a walk-off homer on the final day of the season, there was no such drama this summer.

Mets end rollercoaster season with Thor shutout

Over the final eight weeks of the regular season, the Mets rated as one of baseball's 10 best teams -- a modest accomplishment, perhaps, but enough to paper over the stain of all that came before. A team built on its rotation thrived behind its second-half performance, from Jacob deGrom's routine dominance to Noah Syndergaard's shutout Sunday in a season-ending win over the Marlins.

Reyes likely ends Mets career to cheers

After an emotional evening on Saturday night, playing next to his longtime teammate and friend David Wright for the final time, Jose Reyes took the field on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field, likely for the last time in a Mets uniform.


Wilpon: New GM will decide fates of top execs

The Mets intend to narrow their general manager search in the coming weeks, in a process that will determine the fates of several top executives and uniformed personnel. Chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon, part of the three-man ownership group that is charged with finding a new GM, said Sunday that he will begin asking permission next week to interview other teams' executives.


Hamstring strain ends Nimmo's season early

The last on-field image of Brandon Nimmo's breakout season was an ironic one: The outfielder, known for always sprinting, stumbled rounding first base. The right hamstring strain Nimmo suffered at that moment, in the seventh inning of Saturday's 1-0 win over the Marlins, effectively ended the outfielder's 2018 campaign a day early.


Just like old times: Reyes, Wright share the field

The night was all about David Wright, but his longtime teammate and friend, Jose Reyes, soaked up everything he could playing next to the Mets' captain for likely the last time in front of a sellout crowd of 43,928 fans at Citi Field.


Nimmo exits early vs. Marlins with leg injury

Brandon Nimmo was removed from Saturday's game against the Marlins after suffering a right leg injury that's likely to end the outfielder's breakout season a day early. Nimmo had to be helped off the field after appearing to injure his right hamstring rounding first base following his leadoff single off Miami starter Trevor Richards in the seventh.


Wright bids farewell on emotional night in NY

Fourteen years after beginning his career amidst soaring expectations, David Wright walked off the field on Saturday as perhaps the most popular player to wear the uniform. He walked and popped up in the Mets' 1-0 win over the Marlins, which Austin Jackson won with a walk-off double in the 13th.


Syndergaard faces Marlins in 2018 finale

With the pomp and circumstance of David Wright's return to the lineup in the books, the Mets will complete their season Sunday in a 3:10 p.m. ET finale against the Marlins. Wright is not scheduled to play, though he will remain on the active roster. Noah Syndergaard will pitch for the Mets opposite Miami right-hander Sandy Alcantara.


Mayor de Blasio declares 'David Wright Day'

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio declared Saturday as "David Wright Day," in honor of Mets' captain.


Wright to start at 3B behind Matz vs. Miami

While Steven Matz will be making his final start of the season on Saturday against the Marlins at 7:10 p.m. ET in front of a sell-out crowd at Citi Field, he knows the day is not about him. The fans are there for one reason: a chance to see their captain, David Wright, take the field as he starts at third base. The gates will open at 4:30 p.m. so fans can watch the Mets take batting practice. Righty Trevor Richards will be the opposing pitcher for Miami.


Wright on! Crowd cheers as captain pinch-hits

By the time David Wright made the short walk from the Mets' dugout to the on-deck circle on Friday, Citi Field was abuzz. As fans adulated him, Wright looped his bat in a series of arcs, first with his right hand, then with his left. He went through his routine, strode to the plate and hacked at the first pitch he saw: a 96-mph Jose Urena fastball. Grounding it to third base, Wright said afterward that he was happy just to put it in play.


Young Mets fall, but witness to emotional night

On the last weekend of September, an amped-up crowd showed up to Citi Field to see David Wright's first at-bat since May 27, 2016. For Corey Oswalt and these young pitchers learning on the fly, they played Friday in an atmosphere unlike anything they had previously seen in the big leagues. It may not have been the at-bat Wright or fans had hoped for after nearly two and a half years, but Wright still walked into the Mets' dugout smiling cheek-to-cheek high-fiving every one of his teammates after he grounded out in a pinch-hit at-bat in the Mets' loss to the Marlins.


Wright on! After 2 1/2 years, David pinch-hits

David Wright's two-and-a-half-year absence from the Major Leagues is at an end. Wright will be the first man off the Mets' bench on Friday, according to manager Mickey Callaway, in what will be the captain's first big league appearance since May 27, 2016.


Mets shut down Lugo, Gsellman for season

With the season winding into its final days, the Mets have chosen a plan of caution for two of their most valuable relievers. The Mets shut down both Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman prior to their final series of the year against the Marlins, citing workload concerns.


Wright to be first man off Mets' bench tonight

David Wright's two-and-a-half-year absence from the Major Leagues is at an end. Wright will be the first man off the Mets' bench on Friday, according to manager Mickey Callaway, in what will be the captain's first big league appearance since May 27, 2016.


Structural Biology Seminar: ANTHONY MITTERMAIER, PhD

  • Measuring biomolecular dynamics with benchtop laboratory instruments.
  • Anthony Mittermaier, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry, McGill University
  • Most biological macromolecules express their cellular functions through dynamic phenomena such as binding, assembly, and catalysis. Rapid, inexpensive, and accessible methods to quantify these processes are therefore needed. Our lab is developing approaches for repurposing biochemistry instrumentation typically used for thermodynamic measurements on systems at equilibrium into powerful probes of biomolecular kinetics, with emphasis on isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) and temperature-controlled UV-Vis spectrophotometry.
  • ITC is emerging as a versatile tool for measuring the kinetics of challenging enzyme systems by tracking the heat that is released or absorbed during catalysis in real time. Since almost all chemical reactions release or absorb heat, ITC can be applied nearly universally. We have developed a suite of ITC-based methods that rapidly yield the affinity and the mode of inhibitor binding, the rates of association and dissociation, and the nature of partly-bound intermediates along the inhibitor association pathway.
  • In parallel, we have developed a simple thermal hysteresis method based on rapid, non-equilibrium melting and annealing spectrophotometric measurements. Proof-of-principle applications to a tetrameric guanine quadruplex and co-assembled polydeoxyadenosine/cyanuric acid fibers provided detailed information on the natures of assembly pathways, offering temperature resolution beyond that accessible with conventional techniques.
  • ITC and temperature-controlled spectrophotometers are widely available in research laboratories and core facilities, meaning that these new approaches can be easily applied to studying a broad range of biophysical questions.

Vargas closes strong, provides optimism for '19

Jason Vargas' dominant performance in his final outing of the season on Thursday in the Mets' 4-1 win over the Braves at Citi Field gave manager Mickey Callaway a reason to believe it will carry over into 2019. Backed by homers from Devin Mesoraco and Kevin Plawecki, Vargas allowed just three hits over seven scoreless innings against the NL East champion Braves, who will play the NL West champion -- Rockies or Dodgers -- in the NL Division Series.


Oswalt opens Mets' final series of '18 vs. Fish

Corey Oswalt has played a valuable role for the Mets this season, stepping in wherever they have needed him, whether it be a spot start or out of the 'pen. When starting on four or five days of rest, the righty owns a 4.13 ERA, including a 3.37 mark in September. Oswalt will make his final start of the season on five days of rest against the Marlins on Friday at 7:10 p.m. ET. Right-hander Jose Urena will take the mound for Miami at Citi Field.

These stats show how great deGrom was in 2018

Jacob deGrom finished off one of the greatest individual pitching seasons in MLB history Wednesday with eight scoreless innings against the Braves at Citi Field, in which he yielded only two hits while walking none and striking out 10. It was a fitting end to the 30-year-old right-hander's 2018 campaign, further bolstering his already strong candidacy for the National League Cy Young Award.


deGrom ends historic '18 with 1.70 ERA

Jacob deGrom capped his phenomenal 2018 season with eight scoreless innings of two-hit ball, lowering his MLB-best ERA to 1.70. The National League Cy Young Award hopeful recorded his 1,000th career strikeout with his 10th K on the final out of his start, becoming the fastest Mets pitcher to reach that milestone. Sean Newcomb kept the Braves in the game with five scoreless frames, but he struggled with command and worked a high pitch count. Dominic Smith, who got the Mets on the board with an RBI single, and Michael Conforto ripped solo homers to put the game away.


Vargas gets call in series finale vs. Braves

Jason Vargas will look for one last strong start when he takes the mound Thursday for the Mets' series finale against the Braves at Citi Field. Vargas, who is 4-1 with a 3.11 ERA over his last seven outings, will oppose right-hander Julio Teheran in the 7:10 p.m. ET game.


Mets honor Virgil, 1st Dominican-born player

As the Mets and Major League Baseball continue to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month, the organization honored Ozvaldo (Ozzie) Jose Virgil Sr., 86, by appointing him an honorary coach for Wednesday night's game against the Braves.

Hot Docs Screening: “QUEST”

Join us for a free screening of the award-winning documentary “QUEST” by Jonathan Olshefski and Newmark J-School professor Sabrina Schmidt Gordon, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers, and reception.

Co-Presented by Third World Newsreel, the Black Documentary Collective, Black Public Media.

Filmed with vérité intimacy for nearly a decade, QUEST is the moving portrait of the Rainey family living in North Philadelphia. Beginning at the dawn of the Obama presidency, Christopher “Quest” Rainey and his wife, Christine’a “Ma Quest,” raise a family while nurturing a community of hip hop artists in their basement home music studio. It’s a safe space where all are welcome, but this creative sanctuary can’t always shield them from the strife that grips their neighborhood. Epic in scope, “QUEST” is a vivid illumination of race and class in America, and a testament to love, healing and hope.

New Dramaturgies: Bertie Ferdman w/ David Levine – Contemporary Performance Beyond Site-Specific

Event Date: 10/5/2018 6:30:00 PM Tracing the genealogy of site-based work through the twentieth and twenty-first centuries,  Off-Sites  contextualizes the techniques and methods of the incredibly rich and vital genre of site-specific performance. Originally used for experimental staging practices and then later also for engaged situational events, site-specific is no longer sufficient for the genre’s many contemporary variations. Using the term off-site, Ferdman illustrates five distinct ways artists have challenged the disciplinary framework of site-specific theatre.

Bertie Ferdman  is a contemporary performance scholar whose essays have appeared in  TDR ,  Theater ,  PAJ ,  Theatre  Journal ,  Theatre  Survey ,  Performance  Research , TCG, and HowlRound. 

David Levine  is an artist, director, and writer. Recent solo exhibitions include  Some of the People, All of the Time  at the Brooklyn Museum, and  Private View  at 83 Pitt Street.

Imported From Brooklyn – Antonio Di Spigna Retrospective

Imported From Brooklyn – Antonio Di Spigna Retrospective
September 27th to October 31st
Monday to Friday, 10am-5pm (when College is open)

Opening Reception
Thursday, September 27th
Grace Gallery, 5:30pm-8:30pm

Imported From Brooklyn is the story of Distinguished Professor, City Tech alum, graphic designer and typographer Antonio Di Spigna’s 50-year career. In this show, letterform is elevated to art form through Di Spigna’s signature Spencerian Script.

Born in south Italy, and raised in south Brooklyn, Di Spigna was a student in the Commercial Art Program at City Tech (formerly New York City Community College) from 1962 to 1964. After graduating and continuing his education at Pratt Institute, Di Spigna ascended to partner in the legendary Lubalin Associates studio where he worked on all aspects of visual communication and graphic design. If you know of Herb Lubalin’s work, then you know Tony Di Spigna’s work. Di Spigna’s letterform and typographic work has been widely awarded and exhibited, and has achieved international acclaim.

This show is comprised of original hand-drawn type development sketches on tracing paper, fluid Spencerian Script letterforms and finished printed pieces, spanning Professor Di Spigna’s long career. The work on display has particularly special significance for City Tech’s new Communication Design B.F.A. program because it has been donated by an alum of the department, and through subsequent annual gifts will become the Grace Gallery’s first permanent collection.

The Communication Design department would like to thank Professor Di Spigna for this generous gift that positions the department’s B.F.A. alongside those programs and archives at Cooper Union (The Lubalin Center),  RIT (The Tom Carnase archives) and City College (The George Lois archive).

 


Environmental Sciences Seminar: Il-Won Seo

  • Field Study of Pollutant Mixing in Rivers.
  • Il-Won Seo, PhD Seoul National University, Department of Civil Engineering.
  • Focusing on two-dimensional (2D) mixing in natural rivers and open channels this presentation outlines the necessary field work and subsequent analysis to successfully identify mixing coefficients for a 2D pollutant transport model. When pollutants are introduced into rivers, the mixing length of the intermediate field is very long compared to the first stage. To properly map this process, one needs to identify both the transverse and longitudinal mixing characteristics of the pollutant which is done through deploying the two-dimensional advection-dispersion equation (2D ADE). The equation contains both advection and dispersion terms which are controlled via a longitudinal and a transverse dispersion coefficient. Methods for determination of the dispersion coefficients can be classified into two categories; 1) observation methods, and 2) prediction methods. When observed concentration data are available, the dispersion coefficients can be calculated using the observation methods. Otherwise the dispersion coefficients must be estimated by prediction methods based on the velocity profiles and empirical relations. In this presentation, we report on the experimental methods for tracer tests that we carried out using different experimental settings, such as natural rivers and large-scale experimental channels, as well as on the methods for determination of dispersion coefficients using the field data.

The unsung hero who made the Mets Amazin'

On June 15, 1969, the Mets were nine games back on the Cubs in the newly established National League East. The Mets traded for a player that day who would help propel them to their first championship. Donn Clendenon was hitting .240 in 33 games during his first season with the Expos when they sent the 33-year-old first baseman to New York.

The Mets' most unlikely postseason hero

What do all playoff teams in history have in common? Their rosters are stacked with recognizable, star players who deservedly receive most of the credit for everything good that happened to their clubs both in October, and the weeks leading up to it. But take a closer look -- for every handful of All Star-caliber players, there's at least one lesser-known contributor whose unexpected performance ended up being a difference-maker.


Thor bounces back, but 'pen can't close deal

Before first pitch and a 32-minute rain delay, Noah Syndergaard was sick. The Mets weren't sure what they would get -- if anything -- from the flamethrower, but he battled through six scoreless innings, holding Atlanta to three hits while striking out five.


deGrom faces Braves in last start of magical '18

Jacob deGrom will cap off his historic season against the Braves on Wednesday at 7:10 p.m. ET at Citi Field in front of the fans who have supported him all season long in his push for the National League Cy Young Award. The ace is likely to win the ERA title and will look to strengthen his case for the Cy Young with a 29th consecutive start of three runs or fewer allowed, which would tie the MLB record. Southpaw Sean Newcomb will take the mound for Atlanta.


Mets 'fully anticipate' Callaway at helm in 2019

There is much the Mets must settle over the next month, including finding a new general manager -- a search that remains in the relative early stages. Yet no matter who is in charge of the Mets' baseball decisions come November, Mickey Callaway will almost certainly remain manager heading into next season.


Mets activate David Wright from disabled list

Throughout the past month, as he watched the Mets' games in Flushing and elsewhere, David Wright typically sat on the dugout bench in a blue hooded sweatshirt. He did not put on his uniform top because he was not technically a member of the team; since May 28, 2016, Wright has spent each of the Mets' 433 games on the disabled list. That changed Tuesday, when the Mets activated their captain from the 60-day DL for the final six games of his career.

6 revelations about Mets' broadcast booth

From moccasins to Tootsie Pops.


Inbox: Is Wright on Mets' Mount Rushmore?

Wright is certainly on the franchise's Mount Rushmore; I don't think there's a great argument against Wright as the top offensive player in Mets history. His career WAR of 50.4, according to Baseball Reference, dwarfs that of Darryl Strawberry, who ranks second on the list at 36.6. Wright is the franchise record holder in hits, doubles, runs, RBIs, walks and total bases, and while some of that is due to the fact that he also leads in at-bats and plate appearances, his peak years were Hall of Fame-caliber. Wright's best season, 2007, was good for an 8.3 WAR, best all-time in Mets history.

Let Me Tell You Una Historia

Humans are emotional creatures. Storytelling describes the social and cultural activity of sharing stories, sometimes with improvisation, theatrics, or embellishment. Every culture has its own stories or narratives, which are shared as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation or instilling moral values. That’s why we are looking for Latino/a Story Tellers! We want to ensure you are telling your stories the way they should be told. You can prepare a 5 minute story about a true personal story that honors the latino/a experience; a folk or family story/traditions passed down from generation to generation; or a story that can foster opportunities and shine a light upon positive contributions, because your contributions are valuable! Storytelling is important because it is effective at teaching in a way that people can easily remember, and at helping people relate to one another.


Single Entry

The comedy Single Entry by popular Jamaican writer Aston Cooke, though set in a Jamaican context is one that many an immigrant can readily identify with. Single Entry examines the lives of two working class Jamaican women who are hell-bent on going to New York City to visit a relative; they hope to obtain even a single entry visa and once they enter the country, to never return. Jamaicans’ obsession with U.S. residence can be traced to the 1940s, when many people, mostly from rural parishes, went to Florida for a farm work program. This production in particular, tells how in some not so pretty ways, how the struggle to attain the American dream can be a difficult one especially for illegal immigrants.


#MeToo and Epistemic Injustice

The CUNY Graduate Center Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC), the Center of the Humanities, and the Philosophy Program present and interdisciplinary conference on #MeToo and Epistemic Injustice. Over the past year, the #MeToo movement has forced into national consciousness what has long been an underground truth known by women: the horrifying pervasiveness of sexual harassment and assault as routine everyday occurrences, largely unpunished. How can one explain the resistance there has traditionally been, as recently brought out in one high-profile case after another, to taking women’s testimony seriously? Using Miranda Fricker’s innovative concept of “epistemic injustice” as a focus—the refusal to give members of subordinated groups a fair hearing—this 2-day interdisciplinary conference will examine the problem in its multiple dimensions. Eighteen theorists from a wide variety of subjects—philosophy, political theory, media studies, history, gender and women’s studies, LGBTQ theory, Africana and Native American studies, law, and disability theory—will look from their distinctive perspectives at women’s vulnerability to sexual harassment and assault, and the ways in which it is complicated by class, race, nationality, sexuality, and disability.

Hear about Franklin’s rise to the presidency after his struggle with polio, Eleanor’s activism for civil rights and human rights, and Sara’s philanthropy.  Join us in the rooms where Eleanor gained the leadership skills to become America’s ambassador to the world and where Franklin created the New Deal to bring America out of the Great Depression.  Hear the voices of the Roosevelts and their friends and view Roosevelt memorabilia, photographs, and period documents.

Enjoy the Neo-Georgian landmark designed by architect Charles A. Platt and learn how Hunter College carries on the Roosevelts’ legacies in the 21st century through research, teaching and public programs.

Mathematics Colloquium – Raquel Perales (Instituto de Matemáticas, UNAM)

For $n$-dimensional Riemannian manifolds $M$ with Ricci curvature bounded below by $-(n-1)$, the volume entropy is bounded above by $n-1$. If $M$ is compact, it is known that the equality holds if and only if $M$ is hyperbolic. We show the same maximal entropy rigidity result holds for a class of metric measure spaces known as $RCD^*(K,N$ spaces. While the upper bound follows quickly, the rigidity case is quite involved due to the lack of a smooth structure on these spaces.


Benefit Concert featuring The South African Youth Choir

The internationally acclaimed South African Youth Choir (SAYC) is one of the most exciting choral projects in the world today. Since its inception in 2005, the choir has showcased its vast abilities on both local and international platform, entertaining a variety of audiences across the globe.

Under the direction of Phil Robinson, who took over the reigns as conductor in 2013, the choir has been awarded “Best Youth Choir” at the prestigious ATKV Animato International Choral Competition for the past four years successive (2014 – 2017). The choir was recently crowned as Overall Winner of the 10th annual ATKV Animato International Choral Competition and palmed in awards for “Best Youth Choir”, “Best Prescribed Work”, “Best Traditional Work” and “Best Contemporary Work”. SAYC was also crowned “Best Regional Choir 19 Years & Younger” at the Tygerberg International Eisteddfod (2014). The Choir has positioned itself as one of the most sought-after performance choirs in South Africa and regularly performs and records with various local and international artists.

SAYC was recently honored by Disney with an award for their contribution to the Arts. After a successful extensive tour through the United States during October 2017, the Cities of Las Vegas

and Minneapolis honored the choir by declaring 16 October 2017 and 21 October 2017 as “South African Youth Choir Day” respectively in recognition of the choir’s standard of excellence and contribution to spreading goodwill in these cities.

The choir does not only promote a unique musical product of international standard, but also endorses raw and exceptional South African youth talent. The Choir currently consists of 54 high school learners and students between the ages of 13 – 25 years from all over South Africa, representing the diverse cultures of the country. In the true spirit of UBUNTU, the SAYC is a celebration of unity within cultural diversity.

Mets try new approach with mini-camps

The Mets tried something new at the conclusion of the 2018 Minor League season, holding a pair of one-week camps right after the year's end, in two different locations. One in St. Lucie, Fla. and one in New York.


Who is Mets' all-time single-season ace?

We take a look at each franchise's One Game To Live pitcher, the one pitcher, during his one peak season, that you'd put on the mound with it all on the line. You just get to pick one pitcher, and one season, when he was at the height of his game. Who's your pick?


McNeil's hot bat spurs Mets to rainy series win

The Mets prevailed over the Nationals in a back-and-forth finale, led by Jeff McNeil's four hits and Michael Conforto's three RBIs. Both starters, New York's Steven Matz and Washington's Erick Fedde, had abbreviated outings and struggled with control. Victor Robles led the Nats' offensive charge with his second homer in the third and a two-run triple in the eighth, but the late rally fell short as Anthony Swarzak tossed 1 2/3 scoreless innings for the save.


Syndergaard gets call vs. Braves

Following an off-day Monday, the Mets will activate David Wright from the disabled list. With Wright available off the bench from Tuesday to Friday, the Mets will look for an opportunity to get him a pinch-hit at-bat or two before he returns to the starting lineup Saturday. Right-hander Noah Syndergaard will start Tuesday's 7:10 p.m. ET game against the Braves at Citi Field. Atlanta has yet to announce a starter.


These are the 2018 second-half All-Star teams

Baseball's All-Star Game is our annual opportunity to pause the hustle and bustle of the 162-game schedule and appreciate those who have defined the season, to date. But that date, of course, comes at a point in which so much of the season story is still unwritten. And even though the 2018 Midsummer Classic came especially late (teams had played nearly 100 games by that point), there are plenty of players whose performance since the break is worth appreciating, too.


Oswalt a bright spot in Mets' loss to Nats

Outside of a few aches and pains here and there, the Mets' rotation has stayed remarkably healthy this season. A group with significant injury concerns heading into the spring has quelled nearly all of them, with Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Zack Wheeler and Steven Matz in particular combining to start 111 of the team's first 155 games.

Matz goes for series win vs. Nats

Steven Matz will start the Mets' final road game of the year Sunday at Nationals Park. Owner of a 2.29 ERA over his last six outings, Matz will put that run of success on the line against right-hander Erick Fedde in the 1:35 p.m. ET game.


30 best games of '18 -- 1 player from each team

Every team, all 30 of them, has remarkable moments. From bunches of home runs to bunches of strikeouts, from household names to players you may not have heard of before, these become part of the fabric of a season. Here we go with 30 special individual performances for 30 teams.


Oswalt back in starting rotation to face Nats

With Zack Wheeler shut down for the year due to his heavy workload, Corey Oswalt will rejoin the rotation on Saturday at Nationals Park. Oswalt, who has already spot started twice this month for the Mets, will oppose right-hander Tanner Roark in the 4:05 p.m. ET game.


deGrom adds quality-start record to Cy resume

Jacob deGrom extended his streak of quality starts to 23 in his win over the Nationals, setting a Major League record. His seven innings of one-run ball broke a tie with Chris Carpenter and Bob Gibson for the most consecutive quality starts in a single season. He also struck out eight batters to reach 259 punchouts, the fifth-highest total in Mets history behind only Dwight Gooden and Tom Seaver. Jay Bruce knocked in two runs to back deGrom, and Devin Mesoraco returned from injury to hit a pair of doubles. Joe Ross allowed all four runs (three earned) over six innings for the Nationals.


Back from injury, Mesoraco catches for deGrom

For the first time in 18 days, Devin Mesoraco returned to the field on Friday, starting behind the plate against the Nationals.
