17“These are my usual colors for fall and winter. Not just dark, but I have a lot of layers and colors. Kind of like the changing leaves, you have to have a lot of shades of the same spectrum,” said Hong Kong native Janny Leung, a visiting scholar at the Yenching Institute. 2“I like wearing bow ties when they go with my outfit. I wear a variation of the same thing every day,” said Max Seawright, a graduate student in Romances languages and literatures. “I made this bow tie — I’ve probably made a couple dozen of them. This bag is from Brooklyn Flea — it has my swimming stuff in it. I’m coming from the gym.” Fall now seems like a dream in New England. It arrives and lasts, at best, for a few weeks, before relenting to Boston’s unflinching winter. When it happens, it happens overnight — the tweeds and trenches are suddenly gone, replaced with the omnipresent puffer coat. And this winter has been one of the worst. With snowstorms passing through almost every other day, what’s a style maven to do? This edition of Common Threads weaves between a fleeting fall and enduring winter, showcasing the sudden sartorial switch that occurs, and how, with a bit of effort, style can weather any storm. 12“This is too cold for me!” said Louise Robin, an au pair from Corsica, France, and a student at Harvard Extension School. But she does embrace the snow while it’s here — she has several snow tubing and snowboarding trips planned. 1“This coat keeps me very warm,” remarked freshman Osaremen Okolo from Canton, Mass. “This is the worst winter we’ve had in a while. Usually there’s one big snowstorm. Now it’s like every day.” 16“Harvard has better fashion in the fall. This is a men’s sweater I got from a thrift store. An oversized cardigan is my fall staple. It can make anything look great,” said Lami Olatunji ’14. “I’m wearing eyeliner on my lips and two-tone eye shadow.” 6Matthew Sebastian, part of the A.R.T. stage crew, took his dog Sucuk (Turkish for “sausage”) out for a brisk morning walk. “I like the winter because I can layer. This is one of my favorite tweed jackets, it’s vintage.” But does he like the cold? “Oh, God no,” he guffawed. “It’s freezing.” He said he keeps warm with whiskey. 13Joseph Wawrzyn of Somerville was passing through the Yard en route to work. “I’m nice and toasty, all layered up,” said Wawrzyn, who is the singer of Boston band Condor. He prefers winter to summer and said he keeps warm with, “Layers and snuggles.” 9“This is balmy to me. I’m from Minnesota!” said freshman Luke Heine. “My style is very esoteric. This sweater is a bit Vail, Colo. — skiing some mountains, hot-tubbing at night.” 10Before his visit back to Cambridge, alum Ellison Weeks, Ed.M ’11, who now lives in California’s Bay Area, went shopping. “I remembered how cold it was here, and I needed a new jacket, and I saw this one and loved the color and the camel wool. After coming to New England, my style is a bit preppier. I grew up a bit here.” 8“I have labs today — I’m an engineering student — so my wardrobe is very limiting. I have to wear trousers and flats,” said sophomore Yinka Ogunbiyi ’16. “I like items that don’t really make sense, like this sweater-coat-cardigan; it has a lot of hidden pockets.” 15“I lived in PfoHo as an undergraduate and our mascot is a polar bear,” said Brandon Geller, a sustainability manager at the Office for Sustainability and a graduate student at the Graduate School of Education. “I wear this regularly. It keeps my little paws warm.” 5Linda Martini of Milan said Cambridge residents dress more casually than people in Italy. “People in Milan tend to dress up a lot,” she said. 11Harvard Film Archive Director Haden Guest popped out in the cold to buy “Zama” by Antonio di Benedetto. 4“I have to dress like a professional and not so sexy or fun,” said Tokyo native Ayumi Kanamoto, a visiting fellow at Harvard Kennedy School. “In Tokyo, everyone dresses very well. Here, people have a lot of passion and they’re interesting, but not so fashionable. I’m not even considered fashionable in Japan!” 14“Yellow makes me happy and it’s so dreary. I wanted to cheer myself up,” said second-year Harvard Law School student Fatima Mohammed. 3Tony Rothman, a teaching assistant in general education, bought his hat from a market in Moscow, where he lived off and on for more than 15 years. “As they say in Russia, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes.” And as for his head temperature: “It’s hot.” 7Tobi Tikolo ’14 and Sophie Hagerty ’14 have been dating for two years. “We’re just really similar,” said Tikolo. Even their style is complementary: “I do wear a lot of masculine-inspired things. I like men’s shoes and men’s watches,” said Hagerty.
By Stephanie SchupskaUniversity of GeorgiaWhat began as a federal move toward a mandatory animal identification program has been knocked down a notch. But making the National Animal Identification System voluntary doesn’t mean that it will fade from existence, says one University of Georgia expert.NAIS was designed to inventory each livestock producer’s premises and animals and to provide an industry-wide, 48-hour trace-back system. The system came about as a way to stop the spread of such predominately animal diseases as BSE, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy, by tracking it to its source. BSE is commonly known as mad cow disease.“To be absolutely correct, the U. S. Department of Agriculture has put out a draft of its user’s guide for a comment period for the next couple of months,” said Ronnie Silcox, an associate professor of animal and dairy science at the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “As of November, their position is that NAIS is a voluntary program, and the program is still set up pretty much as always.” With the demand from countries, like Japan, for meat that can be traced by age and origin, the need for animal identification still exists. As of Nov. 27, only 333,184 premises have been registered in the U.S. That’s a small fraction of the more than 1.43 million American meat producers listed in the 2002 census data.For over a year, Silcox has worked to help Georgia’s producers meet NAIS standards. Around 40,000 such livestock facilities exist throughout the state. Less than 10 percent of those have premise ID numbers, he said.“That would include cattle, swine, poultry, horses, goats, sheep, llamas and alpacas,” Silcox said. Because NAIS has become a completely voluntary program, Silcox says the USDA will continue to support the program, but the industry will develop it.“Those producers who are involved in marketing programs and marketing groups of cattle will still want to be involved in an ID program,” Silcox said. Smaller producers may opt to get a premises ID number, and ID their cows, pigs or llamas later, he said. “Registry of premises will help in tracking diseases even if every animal is not registered,” Silcox said.According to Chuck Conner, the USDA’s deputy secretary, in a quote to BEEF magazine, the NAIS “is voluntary with a capital V. Not a currently voluntary, then maybe a mandatory system. This is a permanently voluntary system at the federal level.”Just because the federal government isn’t mandating a tracking system doesn’t mean others won’t make it mandatory.“Right now with our export markets, like the Japanese markets, they’re wanting age and source for beef,” Silcox said. “To do that, we’re going to have to identify and track animals. The program might develop slower than if it were mandatory, but as we move into the future, more of those in the meat industry will want source verification on where they’re getting their products.”(Stephanie Schupska is a news editor for the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)

Clarksville man sentenced to federal prison time for attempting to destroy meth during search of his home
CLARKSVILLE — A Clarksville man has been sentenced to five years in a federal prison after attempting to destroy methamphetamine. The US Attorney for the Northern District of Iowa’s office says 38-year-old Drew Johnson admitted that in February 2019 that he was in possession of meth when officers arrived at his home to search it. Johnson, who was outside at the time, admits running into the house and throwing the meth into a wood-burning stove and then fighting with officers. Johnson has an extensive criminal history, including two prior convictions for domestic assault and multiple theft convictions. US District Court Chief Judge Leonard Strand last week sentenced Johnson to 60 months in prison, to be followed by a four-year term of supervised release.
