His return will celebrate the fact that 1.5 million visits have been made to the building since it opened just over a year ago. Advertisement Foremost among the visitors were HM The Queen, who formally opened the David Wilson Library in December, accompanied by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.Since its opening, the £32m Library has won an array of awards, including a Civic Society accolade for architecture, and the Royal Institute of British Architects East Midlands award for Architecture.During the current examination period, the Library is open 24 hours a day for students studying for their exams. But on Wednesday 3 June a number of them will take a short break from their revision to thank the man who made the iconic building possible.Librarian and Pro-Vice-Chancellor Christine Fyfe said: “The creation of the new Library is a major milestone in the history of the University for which we thank the David Wilson Foundation.“Of all University buildings, the Library best expresses our values and aspirations. The Library is placed both physically and spiritually at the heart of the campus. In opening its doors to the academic community and members of the public alike the Library is the face of the University to the outside world.”David Wilson will meet students who have made use of the new facilities, in addition to Vice-Chancellor Professor Bob Burgess and Christine Fyfe.Professor Burgess said: “The new David Wilson Library has transformed the University of Leicester’s campus and is a clear indication of our ambition for the future. We want to further develop state-of-the-art facilities to underpin the high quality teaching and research for which Leicester has become renowned. There can be no doubt that the provision of such an outstanding facility went some way to Leicester achieving the Times Higher Education University of the Year award in 2008-09. It is also testimony to the high standard of provision that the Library has won so many awards since it was built. This could not, however, have been achieved without the support of the David Wilson Foundation and other donors to whom we are extremely grateful. They have undoubtedly given our students an outstanding resource and greater opportunity to succeed in an increasingly competitive market.”David Wilson, an honorary graduate of the University, said: “The David Wilson Foundation believes strongly that there is no better start in life than the one gained from a good education.“For this reason, the Foundation specifically supports projects which actively increase educational and training opportunities for young people. We are also very keen to help young people overcome barriers to access a good education and training – whether these are through hardship, confidence, disadvantage or inequality.“This is the principal reason the Foundation offered to support the creation of the new University of Leicester Library which enjoys a central place in the lives of students and has a profound and lasting impact on their studies. I very much hope that the new Library will help all Leicester students aspire to do well both within the University and beyond in their future careers.“The Library also is a flagship project within the University’s development programme and helps to place the University within the very top league of UK universities. I am delighted that the Foundation has been able to play such a significant part in the University’s development and I am proud to have been involved”.Library key facts:David Wilson Library – Facts and figuresKey FactsProject scope: To extend and remodel the 1975 library building to create an adaptable, light modern library incorporating a range of new facilities.

The Public Broadcasting Service recently aired an “American Masters” documentary on Althea Gibson, the first African-American tennis star to break the color barrier in the virtually all-white, highly privileged professional tennis world. She has been compared to Jackie Robinson.Althea GibsonGibson was born in 1927 in Silver, S.C., into a sharecropper family. To escape dire poverty, her family moved to Harlem, N.Y., where she started her tennis competition as a teenager at the predominantly Black American Tennis Association. When she first stepped foot on the manicured lawns of Forest Hills in Queens, N.Y., to play tennis in 1950, she was constantly bombarded with the n—er epithet from racist spectators. She eventually became the first Black person to win the French championship (today’s French Open) in 1956. In 1957, she won Wimbledon and U.S. National (today’s U.S. Open) championships. She won the same 1957 championships in 1958 — a remarkable feat. Gibson eventually quit tennis to take more remunerative work because women tennis players were paid next to nothing in those days. She was contemplating suicide when a close woman tennis friend raised $1 million for Gibson from admiring fans worldwide. Despite racism, Williams sisters remain dominantSerena and Venus WilliamsSerena and Venus Williams both consider Gibson to be an important role model, as she overcame the many obstacles she faced as a Black woman to reach the highest pinnacle of recognition in the racist tennis world, similar to those faced by these amazing sisters. The Williams sisters began to play tennis at a very young age in Compton, Calif., thanks to their father, Richard, who coached them. Since the late 1990s, they have dominated women’s tennis in the most amazing way, with Venus winning seven single Grand Slam titles and Serena winning 21 single titles. Serena came very close to winning her first calendar Grand Slam title at this U.S. Open (winning all four major competitions in one year) and to tying with Steffi Graf at 22 wins in the modern tennis era. Serena’s mother, Oracene Price, said that her daughter felt so much pressure to become just the fourth woman in history to win the calendar Grand Slam. (ESPN, Sept. 11)Both Williams sisters have faced horrific racism even to the present day. Richard Williams paid children to yell out racist epithets to his daughters on the Compton practice courts to prepare them for what they would face as adults, playing professional tennis in front of largely white crowds. As Serena began to rack up the single titles on the U.S. Tennis Association tour, she faced ugly racist epithets, most notably at an Indian Wells tournament in California in 2001. She boycotted playing tennis there until earlier this year. Russian Tennis Federation President Shamil Tarpischev was forced to publicly apologize last October to the Williams sisters after he publicly referred to them as “brothers” and called them “scary” to look at. He was banned for a year by the Women’s Tennis Association and fined. Serena characterized his remarks as racist and sexist. Serena may be ranked the number one women’s tennis player, but not in terms of “marketability” in the corporate world. According to Forbes, Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova is the world’s highest-paid woman athlete in terms of endorsements. Serena has beaten Sharapova 18 out of 20 times. In terms of the overall Forbes list of men and women, Sharapova is ranked 12th and Williams 20th. On more than one occasion, Serena has been ridiculed in sexist terms in print and social media for her powerful body image — being 5’9” and 150 pounds — but she has never been on the defensive about it. At 33 and 35 years old, respectively, Serena and Venus Williams are just as dominant today as they were 18 years ago, when they both played at the U.S. Open as teenagers. When asked which athlete she would like to meet today, Serena answered, “Muhammad Ali,” due to his heroic stance in 1967 when he refused to fight in Vietnam. James Blake: standing while BlackJames BlakeBlack tennis stars like Althea Gibson, the Williams sisters, Arthur Ashe and others not only face racism on the tennis courts but off them as well. Take the lesser-known James Blake, once ranked the fourth-best tennis player in the world before he retired in 2013. A surveillance tape caught Blake being viciously attacked by a plainclothes New York police officer outside of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in a case of so-called mistaken identity. Police Commissioner William Bratton stated that the person that Blake resembled could have been his “twin,” a reminder of the racist cliché that all Black people look alike — especially if they are Black young men. The white cop who attacked Blake, James Frascatore, was named in four civilian complaints in a seven-month period of 2013. He has been named in two federal civil rights lawsuits as being among the group of officers accused of beating, pepper spraying and falsely arresting two Queens men in separate incidents that year.Blake has demanded that Frascatore be fired. While Bratton was forced to publicly apologize to Blake, he should also be pressured to arrest and charge Frascatore with assault and battery based on racism.

Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Previous articleUSDA Forecasts Record Farm Exports in FY 2021Next articleHAT Market Analysis for 5/28/21 with Bob Utterback, Utterback Marketing Services Eric Pfeiffer The Person Every Racecar Driver Wants to Meet- an Indiana Dairy Farmer! Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines for the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500! Each year, an Indiana dairy farmer hands out the most prized drink in all of sports, an ice-cold bottle of milk, to the winner of the Indy 500. This year, it’s Jill Houin from Homestead Dairy in Plymouth, Indiana.Houin says this is an opportunity to share with the world the dairy story, and to express how hard dairy farmers work to put milk on the table.“During this hard time of the pandemic, they didn’t stop working. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, working to get milk to the table and to the stores. And then they were working on donating coolers and milk products to food pantries during this time. So, I think just more and more people that understand how passionate and compassionate dairy farmers are for their community and for future generations, it’s just amazing to have the chance to share with so many people.”Assisting Houin this year will be rookie Milk Person Tim Haynes from Superior Dairy in Garrett, Indiana.The racecar drivers certainly love the tradition of guzzling milk after a big win. Josef Newgarden, driver of the #2 car from Team Penske, told HAT they appreciate the work of dairy farmers across the US.“The dairy farmers absolutely work their butts off to try and produce the necessary milk that we all need in society to keep our lives moving forward and to provide nutritious milk that people drink every day or use every day in food. Obviously, for us, we’re very thankful to that group for honoring this tradition of the 500 and providing that tasty milk at the end of the race if you’re hopefully the lucky winner. So, thanks to all of the dairy farmers in the United States and certainly to American Dairy Association of Indiana. It’s just such a great tradition to be able to share with that group and all the work that they put in to supply that product for all the people around the United States.”Newgarden and 20 other drivers chose whole milk as their preference if they find their way to Victory Lane. The rest of the 33-car field chose two percent.Check out more with Houin, Haynes, Newgarden, and this year’s Fastest Rookie Pietro Fittipaldi in the video above. By Eric Pfeiffer – May 27, 2021
