Another bonus off the Deluxe Edition is additional backstage film from the Dead’s 1970 U.K. tour, as well as previously unreleased footage of “Dear Mr. Fantasy” and “Death Don’t Have No Mercy”, both of which were recorded in 1989.As band archivist David Lemiuex shared in a statement,Around 2003, while winding through the 16mm film outtakes for The Grateful Dead Movie in preparation for its DVD release, I came across a couple of unlabeled cans of 16mm film. I loaded the first reel onto the Steenbeck film viewing/editing table and was amazed by what I saw. … Not only rare, exceptional quality material from the performance at the Hollywood Festival, but loads of other terrific footage, showing the band at a Warner Bros. Records party in London (Pigpen surrounded by suits!), at a photo shoot (‘that’s one uncooperative bunch of musicians!’), at a rehearsal hall performing ‘Candyman’ vocal harmonies and, most exciting of all, backstage at the festival. This is truly some of the most remarkable, candid, and interesting footage in existence of the Grateful Dead and we’re thrilled to be releasing the entirety of this wonderful historical document.You can pre-order Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story Of The Grateful Dead here.

Tennessee tracking police deaths, killings

first_imgIn this special podcast episode of “Harvard Chan: This Week in Health,” the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health examines how the state of Tennessee is taking action to more accurately track police deaths and police killings — and explore how that could lead to changes in how police forces operate.“We are starting with the basic principle that first you need to know what the patterns are and then you start doing the kinds of research to try to understand why,” Nancy Krieger, professor of social epidemiology at the Chan School of Public Health, told Voice of America in a July 13 article. Krieger led a study that resulted in a report published this past year.Tracking police killings and police deathslast_img read more

Calling on companies for civic engagement

first_img Read Full Story Around half of eligible voters in the U.S. cast a ballot during the 2018 midterm elections. In the same year, 80 percent of the approximately 3,500 Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota employees voted. CitizenBlue, a 19-year-old civic-engagement initiative led by Blue Cross staff, is largely credited for the company employees’ impressive turnout.Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota is one of eight companies profiled in a new Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation publication titled, “Civic Responsibility: The Power of Companies to Increase Voter Turnout.” Authored by Sofia Gross, Ash Center 2018-19 Technology and Democracy Fellow, and Ashley Spillane, M.C./M.P.A. ’18, the report details companies’ efforts to encourage voter participation and was the inspiration for a panel discussion hosted by the Center last week.Both authors were present for the event alongside panelists Susan Goss Brown, president of the Gap Foundation, Scott Mills, president of BET Networks, and Craig E. Samitt, president and CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota. Harvard Kennedy School’s Archon Fung provided opening remarks and actress Kerry Washington moderated.The event centered around the conclusion of Gross and Spillane’s report, that companies’ efforts to encourage voter participation, no matter the size, have a positive impact on voter engagement. Company efforts detailed in the report and described by the panel range in scope, from registration reminders to an Election Day holiday for employees.At the start of CitizenBlue, said Samitt, “the primary focus was essentially sending reminders to associates to get out and vote. Now it’s much more compressive… We give folks paid time off to go and vote. We send out magnets to remind them about voting dates. We have photo booths with selfie contests and other things to create excitement and enthusiasm.”Of course, not every company is prepared to jump straight in and deploy as many resources. Companies may be deterred by the “stickiness of politics” noted Goss Brown and feel they lack knowledge or experience. “We [GAP] make clothes and sell clothes. We’re not experts in voting laws and politics,” she said. But, in the end, “It’s better to do something than to do nothing.”For all the companies represented on the panel and surveyed by Gross and Spillane, it was critical that voter engagement efforts were non-partisan. The panelists also drove home that civic engagement efforts should be authentic and tied to a company’s mission. “Our [BET Networks] mission is to entertain, engage, and most importantly, empower the African-American community here in this country,” said Mills. “And when you think about the issues that are the greatest challenge for our community … addressing those are contingent upon civic participation.”Looking to the future, the panelists and Washington concluded that there are plenty of opportunities for companies to get started or increase efforts. “With the 2020 presidential election part of our daily conversation already, it is clearly not too early for companies to start thinking about how to encourage voters to participate,” said Gross.last_img read more

At Dataverse Community Meeting, an emphasis on data quality

first_imgDuring the fifth annual Dataverse Community Meeting from June 19 to 21, more than 180 participants, representing over 70 universities and research organizations from around the world, gathered in Harvard’s CGIS South building to learn about, discuss, and improve Dataverse, a software platform for publishing, citing, and archiving research data. Led by a team at Harvard’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS), a growing global community of developers, librarians, archivists, and researchers develop the open source software, which is used by 46 production sites on six continents to host data repositories.Attendees and speakers held presentations, workshops, panels, and an ideathon/hackathon, working on issues related to reproducibility of research, scaling outreach programs, software integrations for increasing Dataverse’s data storage options, and enhancing interoperability between data repositories and tools for visualization and curation.“One of the hardest but most essential elements of an open source software project is community engagement,” said Merce Crosas, chief data science & technology officer at IQSS and university research data officer at the office of the vice provost for research. “This year’s community meeting has shown that community engagement is an unquestionable success of the Dataverse project. While we celebrate our project’s success, we are also reminded of the importance of our work and the work we have ahead. Through Dataverse repositories now hosted on six continents, we are together making data accessible to more and more people, enabling them to verify research results, develop evidence-based decisions, and solve future challenges with high-quality, comprehensive data.” Crosas and Jonathan Crabtree spoke about the Global Dataverse Community Consortium, which formed a year ago with Crosas, Crabtree (UNC), and Peter Doorn (DANS) as chairs. The consortium has secured bulk pricing for registering persistent identifiers for Dataverse repositories and plans to provide services to support the Dataverse community.Attendees heard from Martha Whitehead, who was just two weeks into her tenure as vice president for the Harvard Library, and Roy E. Larsen, librarian for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Drawing on experiences as vice provost and university librarian at Queen’s University in Canada, Whitehead shared her vision for the library’s role in influencing the layers of policy, infrastructure, and services needed to facilitate data creation, use, and preservation.A look at the agenda and presentation slides also show how the community’s work continues to evolve with an emphasis on increasing the quality of shared data. Yin Shenqin, director of Science Data Center at Fudan University in Shanghai, spoke about the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission’s highly distributed deployment of Dataverse installations across dozens of universities and how they’ve scaled educational initiatives that help researchers and administrators improve how they share data.Ceilyn Boyd, Harvard Library’s research data program manager, moderated a panel discussion with administrators of four Dataverse repositories, including Harvard’s free and open data repository Harvard Dataverse. The administrators spoke about the benefits and challenges of different curation models.To learn more about Dataverse and how to get involved, visit the Dataverse Project.last_img read more
