There are plenty of prizes out there, and while it would be nice to win a Nobel, the award I dream of winning is the MacArthur. Just think about it: You don’t have to apply, you just get a phone call one day informing you that you’ve won $625,000–no strings attached. Oh, and now everyone has to call you a genius. While a number of Baltimore-based folks have won the prize in recent years, this year no local profs were on the list. But one of the honorees does have different strong ties to Johns Hopkins.

Tripster will give them a day filled with fun, interesting activities.  With many schools closing  NEXT WEEK for the Jewish holiday, now’s the time to learn more!  Check out the launch event Tripster has planned, and read more about the company and its amazing proprietor, who is a working mom herself and understands the need for occasional child care.   Here’s a note from owner, Jamie Seward:

Johns Hopkins is on a multi-year quest to become one of the top 10 universities in the country. According to the most recent US News ranking, they’ve almost made it, coming in at number 12. (Prepare to go down, Cal Tech and Dartmouth!) But do you know what else sounds pretty good? Being the 14th best university… in the world. And if you filter out the UK schools also in the top spots, this makes Hopkins the 9th best school in the United States!

October Open House at the Waldorf School – Ask About the Rudolf Steiner Scholarship.  A visit to the Waldorf School of Baltimore is an important part of deciding whether a Waldorf education is right for your child. Initially, you will notice the beauty of our hallways and classrooms. What makes a more lasting impression, however, is the sense of purpose and joy you will observe as students move throughout the campus – as they arrive to begin the day, as they travel between classes, and as they depart in the afternoon.
