Reaching new heights

Posted On Mar 1 2021 by

first_img Picturing Harvard — and America Related The center in the crossroads New Smith Campus Center is a welcome to all center_img Harvard Square’s new restaurant towers above the rest, literally.The Heights, which opened in early March, sits on the top floor of the Smith Campus Center, giving diners a bird’s-eye view of the Charles River and the southern part of campus, including the bell tower of the Baker Library and inside the U-shaped Harvard Stadium. Offering lunch, dinner, and even cocktails for Harvard affiliates and their guests, The Heights puts flavorful twists on familiar favorites.“Everybody’s trying to fit a niche,” said executive chef Joseph B. Santos, a veteran of the New York City food scene. “What I’m trying to do here is break the mold a little bit.”He’s doing that with an 80-seat venue that offers quick-service lunch and full-service dinner featuring modern cuisine inspired by tastes from his childhood, his culture, and his travels in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. dishes range from a Rhode Island-style calamari with Korean gochujang aioli instead of the usual marinara sauce, to a mac and cheese plate served Mediterranean-style with Greek olives, spinach, and artichokes. There’s also garden-style mac and cheese, Black Angus burgers, Cuban sandwiches, a Cambridge-inspired salad, and even an Instagram-ready vegetable dish called the “Meze Hall.”“It’s a lot of flavors that are familiar to a lot of people. We’re calling the food contemporary American [because] what the face of America is now is a melting pot,” said Santos, who is Asian and Filipino-American and loves seeing what other cultures eat and how they cook it.The menu shows off Santos’ passion for homemade ingredients and dishes that are camera-ready. He buys local and cooks from scratch when he can. “The Toast” pops with a mix of colors from kale, radishes, red onions, and egg that tops it off. The peanut butter and jelly sandwich uses a house-made peach jam and is stuffed with Applewood bacon. French fries, sprinkled with a vibrant blend of red spices, come with a side of homemade barbecue sauce. All are perfectly made for social media.“Part of it is actually seeing it prepared properly and putting some love into it to have it look beautiful,” Santos said. “We take a minute or two extra just to make sure it’s done right.”,The Heights offers daily dinner and pasta specials, with five cooks behind the line flexing their creativity. Though according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics only about 40 percent of professional cooks in the U.S. are female, all five line cooks at The Heights are women. “In all my years of cooking this is actually the first time I’ve ever had a full female hot line,” Santos said. “When I was looking at these resumes I wasn’t looking at names, I wasn’t looking at gender, I was looking at skills, and I’m glad it worked out organically like this.”Along with food, the restaurant features a refreshing cocktail, beer, and wine menu Tuesdays through Fridays from 5 to 11:30 p.m. One cocktail, a creation of Santos’, is called the Bad Bunny. The drink, a twist on the Bloody Mary, uses carrot juice, vodka, and other ingredients.The vibe at The Heights is casual, and the elevated tableside view of the Charles and Allston make it unlike any other eatery in the Smith Campus Center. “It’s an amazing treat to come upstairs,” said Elizabeth Osgood, a Harvard employee there with colleagues for lunch.The restaurant is the seventh dining option brought in by Common Spaces, rounding out a well-balanced lineup in the Smith Center. The space is tucked away in the River View Commons wing of the 10th floor, which at least one person in the party must have a Harvard ID to access.So far, The Heights has been a welcome addition.Osgood had the day’s special, pulled-pork sliders. She said she had trouble deciding what to eat because “the menu is awesome.”Hana Seita, a Harvard College senior there with a classmate, agreed. “I like how there are a lot of vegetarian and vegan options,” she said. When the waiter arrived with her order — The Toast — Seita’s eyes widened. “Oh, wow!” she said. “It looks so good.”To learn more about The Heights, including the menu and times, visit its website.

CWI/PCL 4-day tournament…. Jaguars 61 runs short of victory target

Posted On Sep 19 2020 by

first_imgOPENER Devon Smith fell agonisingly short of his 33rd first-class century, but despite his effort, the advantage is still with the Guyana Jaguars, as the hosts closes in on victory against the Windward Islands Volcanoes at the end of the penultimate day yesterday at the National Stadium, Providence.The tourists could only set a modest total of 165 for the hosts to chase, and at stumps on day three of the sixth round Cricket West Indies (CWI) Professional Cricket League (PCL) Four-day encounter, the title-holders were 104-4, 61 runs short of the victory target.For the Volcanoes there was little to be positive about, although Smith did at least offer some resistance in their second innings, battling to 95, but it was generally another disappointed batting display, as they were bowled out for 241.When the hosts chase began, they lost Tagenarine Chanderpaul off the sixth ball into the innings without scoring, before the demise of skipper Leon Johnson (12), Chanderpaul Hemraj (19) and Shivnarine Chanderpaul (11) during the final session of play, but any further hope the visitors had of making the Jaguars uncomfortable was withdrawn by Vishaul Singh and Anthony Bramble.Singh remained unbeaten on 48 while Bramble is on ten.Earlier, rain delayed the start of play by 45 minutes, with the tourists, batting a second time, resumed on 127-6, an overall lead of 50 runs.Smith, who resumed on 49, immediately brought up his fifty with a boundary off left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul. The 36-year-old was joined by his nephew Dennis Smith at the start of the day’s play, and together they showed no signs of nerves, as they frustrated the home side for most of the session.As the partnership flourished, both batsmen played freely, mixing caution with aggression before Permaul (2-79) brought an end to the 68-run stand when he had Dennis Smith trapped leg before wicket for a 74-ball 28, at 196-7.Soon after, Smith was bowled between bat/pad by Gudakesh Motie (2-46), an innings which spanned 271 minutes, 185 balls, with seven fours and a six.However, Shane Shillingford and Delorn Johnson survived until lunch at 214-8, with the visitors leading by 137.After the interval, Keemo Paul (2-56) removed Johnson with the first delivery of the second new ball before rain intervened. Soon after the resumption, pacer Keon Joseph (2-29) claimed the final wicket of Shillingford for 26. Medium pacer Sherefane Rutherford (2-19) was the other successful bowler for the Jaguars.After losing the 21-year-old Chanderpaul, leg before wicket to Johnson, Hemraj and Johnson took the hosts to tea at 23-1, but the Jaguars skipper was bowled by Johnson soon after the interval before Hemraj was trapped in front to Kyle Mayers.However, both Chanderpaul and Singh were given chances, with the 43-year-old dropped on eight while Singh was put down when he was on 30 and 41, as the visitors bowlers bowled in the right areas and troubled the left-handed pair constantly.But, the ever-reliable Chanderpaul was taken at first slip off Shillingford just before the close. Singh and Bramble then continued their defiance till the end.

Alliance of American Football: Players, coaches, reasons to watch new pro football league

Posted On Aug 26 2020 by

first_imgAre the uniforms cool? These Battleship gray and yellow uniforms have a Naval theme, and they look sharp. The aircraft carrier logo is awesome.The @AAFFleet uniforms represent the grays of the U.S. Navy’s Pacific fleet, complemented by the warm yellows of the San Diego sun. https://t.co/GdiGEeRglC #JoinTheAlliance 🏈⚓️ pic.twitter.com/DIIjVJkFPH— The Alliance (@TheAAF) November 29, 2018Who is the coach?  Dave Boller is the GM, but it’s former Rams coach Mike Martz who is the most-recognizable name here. Martz was the coach in the loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl 36.Remember that guy?  Arizona State’s Mike Bercovici and East Carolina’s Phillip Nelson are fighting for time at quarterback, and Colorado’s Nelson Spruce and Stanford’s Francis Owusu were solid players in college. Damontre Moore was a solid pass-rusher at Texas A&M, and linebacker A.J. Tarpley had 299 tackles at Stanford. There are a handful of reasons to watch this new, unique football league. Among them: There are no TV timeouts. Teams must attempt two-point conversions after every touchdown. No kickoffs. No halftime. And the 52-man rosters feature some blasts from the past.MORE: AAF aims to offer second chancesThe season runs through April 27, which will be the final day of the 2019 NFL Draft.Here is a team-by-team guide with reasons to watch the AAF.Alliance of American Football teams(Eastern Conference)Atlanta LegendsStadium:  Georgia State StadiumAre the uniforms cool?  Royalty wears purple, and the Legends have a crown on their helmet. “Game of Thrones” fans will like these uniforms.All hail ATL. pic.twitter.com/Y3vmY3zPvN— Atlanta Legends (@AafLegends) November 28, 2018Who is the GM and coach? Former Rams GM Billy Devaney runs the team, which is coached by former Dolphins defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle. Of course, all that pales in comparison knowing Michael Vick is the offensive coordinator. That should be fun. Remember that guy?  Former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray will be a popular player close to home, and former Michigan star Denard Robinson, also known as “Shoelace,” is on board. The defense loaded up on locals with T.J. Barnes, Brandon Watts, KeShun Freeman and Corey Griffin from Georgia Tech, plus Damian Swann and Quincy Mager from Georgia.Birmingham IronStadium:  Legion FieldAre the uniforms cool?  The Iron have a silver-and-black look, very similar to that of the Sharks in “Any Given Sunday.” It is the textbook case of “less is more.” They are cool.First look at the @AafIron uniforms. pic.twitter.com/xnWkrorQxr— Ryan Brown (@RyanBrownWJOX) November 27, 2018Who is the GM and coach?  Longtime NFL assistant and former Alabama offensive line coach Joe Pendry is the GM, and former first-round pick Tim Lewis is the head coach.Remember that guy?  Can the Auburn and Alabama fans get along? The Iron have former Alabama stars Blake Sims and Trent Richardson, plus former Auburn receiver Quan Bray. Chris Davis, who returned the legendary “Kick Six” in the Iron Bowl for the Tigers, also is on the roster.Memphis ExpressStadium:  Liberty Bowl StadiumAre the uniforms cool?  It’s red, white and blue with a jet plane on the helmet.

Former Vanderbilt running back Zac Stacy figures to get carries. The defense has a heavy SEC presence that includes former LSU stars Sam Montgomery and Anthony Johnson.Orlando ApollosStadium: Spectrum StadiumAre the uniforms cool?  Apollo himself would wear this navy blue uniform with light orange and dark orange tones. The logo is original, too. We like it.👀 First Look: These are the uniforms the Apollos will be wearing when we 🏹 #TakeAim this February!Get your season tickets now ▶️ https://t.co/6lMMgCJSBr pic.twitter.com/BwxKUqYVAM— Orlando Apollos (@aafAPOLLOS) November 27, 2018Who is the GM and coach?  Former Seahawks and Falcons GM Tim Ruskell brought back Steve Spurrier, who he knows from the Tampa Bay Bandits days in the USFL. The “head ball coach” is back. No wonder those uniforms feature orange and blue.Remember that guy?  Austin Appleby and Garrett Gilbert are familiar names at quarterback from their days at Florida and SMU, respectively, along with Purdue running back Akeem Hunt. Former Washington linebacker Azeem Victor and FSU defensive lineman Jacob Pugh are familiar names, too. The Apollos have 15 players from Florida, Florida State and Miami.(Western Conference)Arizona HotshotsStadium:  Sun Devil StadiumAre the uniforms cool?  Think North Dakota State. The yellow, green and orange combination works. The logo is OK, but the Hotshots were good enough to put the number on the side of the helmet.Arizona Hotshots reveal uniforms and helmet design https://t.co/dk2xn9JsYg pic.twitter.com/YV9v5EDv8P— azfamily 3TV CBS 5 (@azfamily) November 28, 2018Who is the GM and coach? Former Browns GM Phil Savage is in charge, and Rick Neuheisel, who played in the USFL in 1984-85, is the head coach.Remember that guy?  Trevor Knight, the quarterback who passed for 348 yards and four TDs in the 2014 Sugar Bowl against Alabama, is the quarterback. Larry Rose II rushed for 4,558 yards and 37 TDs at New Mexico State. Former Georgia defensive tackle Trenton Thompson is on the defense.Salt Lake StallionsStadium: Rice-Eccles StadiumAre the uniforms cool?  They look like the old Seahawks uniforms, with a light silver-and-gray combination. The logo is clever.Land speed records have been set, and broken, on Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats for decades. That’s why the Salt Lake Stallions uniforms are inspired by automotive chrome. #GoStallions pic.twitter.com/6raWJfoEEv— The Alliance (@TheAAF) December 4, 2018Who is the GM and coach?  Longtime NFL exec Randy Mueller is in charge, and he brought back Dennis Erickson, who coached at Miami and with the 49ers and Seahawks.Remember that guy?  Utah running back Matt Asiata will be a fan favorite in his old stadium, and there is a heavy Nebraska presence on the offense with Terrell Newby and Kenny Bell. Former BYU standouts Handsome Tanielu and Micah Hannemann are on the defense.San Antonio CommandersStadium: AlamodomeAre the uniforms cool?  All kinds of colors here with maroon, red, silver and white, and it looks like a collision between Virginia Tech and Louisville.San Antonio Commanders @aafcommanders first look at the 2019 uniforms from a Twitter post by the Alliance of American Football (AAF) @TheAAF pic.twitter.com/Rz5310WvR7— Joe Alexander (@JoeAlexander210) November 27, 2018Who is the GM and coach?  Cowboys legend Daryl Johnston is the GM. Former Nebraska coach Mike Riley is the head coach, and former Wake Forest and Baylor coach Jim Grobe joins him as the defensive coordinator.Remember that guy?  Former Toledo quarterback Logan Woodside will get a shot here. The Commanders have running backs you’ll remember, like Minnesota’s David Cobb, Houston’s Kenneth Farrow, TCU’s Aaron Green and Texas A&M’s Trey Williams.
