Glory Kim talks about his research on the fetal membrane ultrastructure of Kingsnakes

Trinity’s Summer Science Research Program, which started in May, wrapped up last week. Approximately eighty students conducted research, gave presentations, and had the opportunity to hear what alumni were doing.

The final day featured five presentations by six students, with two of those teams looking at the ketogenic diet. Audience members were able to ask questions following the brief presentations, with some questioning various researchers’ methods, a practice that pushes learners toward more sound decisions in the future.

Several of the students indicated that their research is ongoing. Shelby Labe and Laura Nee Continue reading 'Science Students Opt to Spend Summer on Campus'»

Flags on Park Street

By , June 7, 2015 9:23 am

As is the tradition, vendors lined Park Street in preparation for the Greater Hartford Puerto Rican Day Parade and Festival, which takes place today. While the parade and festival are more-or-less family-friendly and take place between Colt Park and Bushnell Park, the parade eve continues to feature cars, motorcycles, bicycles, and air horns — up and down Park Street — all vying to be the loudest.

From May 17-May 27th sections of Park Street will be closed to motorists from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. This closure includes on-street parking. The City of Hartford says that residents will need to figure out off-street overnight parking during this time.

This will impact Park Street between Main Street and Park Terrace.

Sidewalks will remain accessible.

Scenes from the Sidewalk: No.

Remember how last month Broad Street was all about equestrians?

We can’t help but think that a pedestrian with some markers noticed the sidewalk-closure-without-warning on the west side of Broad Street near Capitol Avenue, not so far from where this sign was spotted.

Poor parking skills are honed over time. This driver has gotten a head start. Let’s look at all the violations:

  • Facing the wrong direction on a one-way street
  • Parking on the side where no parking is allowed
  • Parallel parking is the norm. This driver tried angle parking, backwards no less
  • Not even remotely near the curb
  • Possible interfering with driveway access

The future promises to be exciting!
