LINCOLN, Neb. – About half of the more than 3,000 known letters penned by Pulitzer-winning novelist Willa Cather have been compiled, digitized and annotated. And soon, they’ll be available online.“The Complete Letters of Willa Cather” will be available Jan. 16 through the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the Lincoln Journal Star reported .Cather graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1895. Her novels told of Great Plains frontier life, and she was awarded a Pulitzer in 1923 for her book “One of Ours.” She died in 1947.In the letters to friends, family and colleagues, Cather describes her process and inspirations while also expressing frustrations and doubts.“Through the letters, there are thousands and thousands of details no one knew before,” said Andrew Jewell, the archive’s editor.The journey to use Cather’s unpublished and private papers to add context to her published works began three years ago. The process was aided by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in co-operation with the Willa Cather Foundation in Red Cloud, a Nebraska town that served as a backdrop to Cather’s work.Researchers began collecting Cather’s letters, which were held at Harvard College, private collections in Vermont and elsewhere across the U.S. A team of about 14 editors and contributors made digital copies of the letters, then transcribed and annotated the pieces. The process involved carefully examining Cather’s handwriting and deciphering her use of nicknames.“That was a big learning curve,” said Emily Rau, a graduate student and an assistant editor at the archive.The team then created an encyclopedia of short biographies about the people, places and works Cather referenced in the letters.New letters will be periodically added to the database over the next few years, Jewell said.___Information from: Lincoln Journal Star, http://www.journalstar.com by The Associated Press Posted Jan 3, 2018 7:31 am PDT Last Updated Jan 3, 2018 at 12:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Pulitzer-winner Willa Cather’s letters to be made public

S. France and Sweden Bolsonaro’s main support comes from wealthier more educated Brazilians Power says that is partly due to Bolsonaro’s hard line on law and order amid a surge of violent crime in Brazil Fernando Haddad The candidate for the PT was a late entry to the race only being confirmed as the party’s candidate after Brazil’s electoral court disqualified Lula in August “His main challenge is getting out from under Lula’s shadow” Power says adding that critics portray Haddad as Lula’s puppet and warn that if elected he would use executive powers to release him from prison Last week Haddad was forced to dismiss this claim from a member of his own party A lawyer and economist he was Mayor of São Paulo until 2017 He saw a surge in support after entering the race but seems to have plateaued around 21% Haddad 55 has previously spoken out against irresponsible public spending by his left-leaning party But he has now pledged to reverse austerity policies implemented by the ruling center-right government "We are not going to sacrifice the people any more" he told the Guardian after launching his campaign "Without public investment without families spending without cheap credit the economy wont recover" Ciro Gomes The candidate for the Democratic Labor Party Gomes is the main centre-left alternative to Haddad He is polling at 11% Gomes 60 has been in politics for four decades and has remained largely scandal-free He has served as a governor a finance minister and a congressman and has already run for president twice before Having worked in Lula’s government and supported him in the past Gomes was expected to gain some of the jailed former president’s support Yet so far voters have mostly gone to Haddad He has been harshly critical of both Bolsonaro whom he calls a fascist and the PT for allowing Bolsonaro’s rise by announcing their candidate so late Gerardo Alckmin Alckmin 65 is the candidate for the ruling centre-right PSDB and is currently on 9% The São Paulo state governor has been called “the Brazilian Hillary Clinton” because of his failure to win over voters despite ample experience in government “He’s an establishment candidate in an anti-establishment moment” Power says “Hes a very bland middle-of-the-road figure” Alckmin had been counting on taking the votes of the large proportion of Brazilians that say they would never vote for the PT but has been battered by Bolsonaro’s rise Marina Silva The founder of Brazil’s Green Party and former environment minister Silva 60 is running on a platform of promoting sustainability while creating jobs She also wants to invest more in education and roll out high-speed internet access across the country She is currently polling at 4% What are the issues on voters’ minds Schuler says that “culture wars” rather than policy discussions have dominated the 2018 elections But there are at least three other key points at stake: Corruption The Lava Jato (Car Wash) corruption probe launched in 2014 to investigate billions of dollars in graft at state-owned owned firm Petrobras Dozens of politicians have been investigated for things like taking kickbacks to award public contracts to companies that later overcharged the state At one point last year a third of the cabinet was under investigation Public anger at the political class has upended the two-party system that has dominated Brazil since the 1990’s 7 in 10 Brazilians say they have no trust in any political party “There’s a feeling that there’s something rotten in Brasília” says Power “Many people just want to get all the bums out” Security 2017 was the most violent year in Brazil’s modern history with 63880 murders Economic troubles driving people towards crime and the drug trade is partly to blame says Power and reduced public spending on security forces has also contributed Bolsonaro claims the surge in violence is the fault of human rights activists and global human rights treaties which restrict Brazil’s ability to fight crime He has pledged to give police more discretion to use lethal force and to lift gun control laws to allow Brazilians to defend themselves "If someone breaks into our house or our ranch we must have the right to shoot them and if we kill them its their problem for dying not ours" he said at a campaign rally earlier this year Economy Brazil is emerging from a four year-long recession which has driven unemployment up and wages down The budget is balanced for now but economists are warning that spiralling public debt could spark a new financial crisis soon Though Haddad is a moderate investors are hostile to his party’s plans to ease budget restrictions and their refusal to overhaul the expensive public pension system Despite his reactionary views Bolsonaro is seen as more market-friendly; after polls revealed he had extended his lead over Haddad this week the local currency the real jumped to its highest rate against the dollar in months Who will win in a run-off vote Polls agree that any run-off vote will almost certainly be between Bolsonaro and Haddad the most ideologically-opposed candidates in the race Then the question will be how many of the smaller parties’ supporters will drift to the far-right candidate and how many right-of-center voters will hold their noses and vote for Haddad to keep Bolsonaro out It’s certainly possible the former Army general will take the presidency; one simulated second-round poll shows Bolsonaro beating Haddad 44% to 42% with the rest of voters spoiling their ballots A lot will depend on who the eliminated candidates choose to endorse and how the rest of Brazil’s politicians respond Bitter partisan divisions mean it’s unlikely that parties will band together to block Bolsonaro out says Power “Theres a good portion of congress thats very opportunistic” he says “Before they make a move they’ll wet their finger and hold it in the air to see which way the wind is blowing” Write to Ciara Nugent at ciaranugent@timecomVienna Austria is the city with the highest overall quality of life in the world according to a survey released on Tuesday Mercer’s 18th annual Quality of Living survey evaluates living conditions based on a location’s political social and economic environment;

explore the outside world as a research suggests that outdoor learning yields extraordinary results (Source: Pixabay) Top News Parents you may want to expose your kids to nature more as according to a recent study it could yield extraordinary resultsThe study also suggested that outdoor learning needs to be introduced more formally into global school curricula in order for its potential benefits to be fully realised Read More The report by Plymouth University and Western Sydney University highlights the many and varied benefits to children of learning in the natural environment not just from an educational perspective but also in terms of their behaviour social skills health and well-being resilience confidence and sense of place But it also says that in an age dominated by a full curriculum busier family lifestyles and increased fear within society children are losing the freedom to play explore and be active in their environment and being denied opportunities that could enhance their long term prospects The report identifies a framework showing how governments could build on existing and current research and introduce outdoor learning as an integral element of national education policies Sue Waite one of the authors said: “At the moment if outdoor learning is part of a school’s curriculum in England it is largely because the teachers recognise the values of it With so much focus on academic attainment there can be pressure on teachers to stay in the classroom which means children are missing out on so many experiences that will benefit them throughout their lives” She added “This report shows that although there is significant research which supports outdoor learning for academic as well as social and personal outcomes it is only by having that recognised by policy makers that we are likely to achieve universal positive cultural change” Share This Article Related Article The framework the study proposes includes pathways to research informed practice designed to generate five key outcomes for children: a healthy and happy body and mind; a sociable confident person; a self-directed creative learner; an effective contributor; an active global citizen Western

is unlikely however to achieve its main goal: proving that the vaccine a livestock pathogen modified with an Ebola surface protein protects humans against the deadly disease That’s because there simply may not be enough patients Since peaking at the end of November the number of newly reported cases in Sierra Leone has dropped steadily from 95 4 weeks ago to just 21 last week That makes it very unlikely that the trial—led by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health and Sanitation—can get a statistically significant result says Stephan Becker a virologist at the University of Marburg Germany Together with the College of Medicine and Allied Health Science at the University of Sierra Leone CDC and the ministry aim to vaccinate 6000 nurses doctors and other frontline workers battling the Ebola outbreak over the coming months The vaccine—developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory and now backed by pharmaceutical giant Merck—was made by stitching a gene coding for an Ebola surface protein into the vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) a relative of rabies that infects cattle horses and pigs There has been no discussion of scrapping the trial which may end up costing about $25 million said Anne Schuchat director of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at a press conference today “However we did decide that it was very important to adjust our design to maximize the chance that we would be able to answer key questions” she said Instead of a classic stepped-wedge trial which introduces a vaccine to different groups in phases and then compares results from those who were vaccinated early with those who were vaccinated later the investigators are now starting a randomized trial in which individual participants will receive the vaccine either immediately or after a period of 6 months The new design increases the time that unvaccinated people—the control group—will be observed At the end of the study researchers will compare the rates of infection among the vaccinated and unvaccinated groups Statistical modelling suggests that to get a significant result 67 participants would have to be infected with Ebola if the vaccine is 50% efficacious If the vaccine is 90% efficacious as few as 17 infections might yield a significant result Even with a low probability of getting those results Becker says going ahead with the trial—called STRIVE (Sierra Leone Trial to Introduce a Vaccine against Ebola)—is a good idea because it may yield important information about the VSV vector That could be helpful in designing other vaccines based on that virus “And the trials might still save a few lives while doing that” he says The researchers are also collecting data on how safe the vaccine is and how well it stimulates the immune system information that might pave a way for the vaccine to be licensed even if there is no final proof of its protection An ongoing trial may also prove crucial if there is another uptick in cases says John-Arne Rttingen of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health in Oslo STRIVE is the second phase III trial of this particular Ebola vaccine candidate Last month a World Health Organization (WHO)–sponsored trial was launched in Guinea In that trial called a ring vaccination rings of people living close to newly discovered Ebola patients are identified and vaccinated either immediately or after 21 days So far five of a planned 190 rings have been vaccinated There have been more new Ebola
