New Look, New Location, Same Tasteful Menswear for Gentlemen at Samuel Parker in Cross Keys

0 Written by: | Saturday, Sep 13, 2014 2:00pm

20140902_111006
Samuel Parker has long been our gold standard for a local men’s haberdashery. Named for owner Ken Himmelstein’s own grandfather, the shop caters to gentlemen of refined and classic tastes. And while some women may lament that that can seem to be a dying breed, the success of Samuel Parker and Himmelstein’s vision seems to indicate otherwise.
In fact, the shop is so popular that Himmelstein has actually moved locations, opening up in the Village of Cross Keys (as though you needed another reason to visit one of our favorite shopping oases). The new and expanded Samuel Parker opened its doors Thursday, Sept 4, complete with all the incredible menswear the shop is known for, plus new offerings that take the shop well beyond just fashion, embracing all things that make for a man of complete style.

Concussion Expert Chris Nowinski to Speak at Gilman on Oct. 9

Chris Nowinski 0652

Former Harvard football player turned WWE professional wrestler Chris Nowinski, now a nationally-known advocate for concussion awareness, prevention, and research in athletes, will visit Gilman School on Thursday, October 9, 2014, to talk with students, parents, and coaches. His talk at 7 p.m. in Alumni Auditorium is free and open to the community.

Nowinski is the co-founder and executive director of the Boston-based Sports Legacy Institute, a nonprofit dedicated to solving the sports concussion crisis through education, policy, and research. He also co-founded the Boston University CTE Center and works on concussion committees formed by the NFL Players Association, the Ivy League, Major League Lacrosse, and other organizations. His personal experience with brain trauma forced him to retire from WWE and led him to write the critically acclaimed book Head Games: Football’s Concussion Crisis in 2006, which is now in its 3rd edition as Head Games: the Global Concussion Crisis and was adapted for the documentary film Head Games in 2012.

College Rankings and College Admissions: Coming Out on Top

0 Written by: | Wednesday, Sep 10, 2014 4:30pm

endowment comparison4-1

It’s that time of the year again when US News and World Report releases its annual rankings for national colleges and universities.  The 2015 rankings, released yesterday, illustrate the usual shuffle among the Ivy League and Ivy League-ish institutions at the top: Princeton, Harvard, and Yale remained on top; MIT edged ahead of Duke while Columbia, Stanford, and University of Chicago now are tied at 4th place. Essentially, nothing has changed, and in this article I will use the current metrics of college rankings to investigate why this is so and how it impacts college admissions.

Undergraduate Academic Reputation

A whopping 22.5 percent of the rankings are based on the subjective opinions of both high school counselors and administrators at peer institutions.  The weight of this metric largely reflects the enormous marketing budgets colleges now need to stay competitive in the rankings.  According to a 2011 Noel-Levitz poll, private universities spent a median of $2,185 marketing dollars per new student.  This expense is an indicator that top colleges don’t just have to be good; they have to make sure everyone knows it.  This is easier for Ivy League schools who have garnered impervious auras that remain intact no matter the cheating scandals or grade inflation that may occur there; whereas “ranking climbers” like Washington University in St. Louis have used exorbitant fundraising campaigns in years past to attain similar stature.
