Yosemite Visitors Sparse As Deadly Virus Spreads
CBS 47 - over 4 years
Park Rangers are in the process of rodent-proofing 91 cabins at Yosemite National Park’s Curry Village. Only wildlife could be seen roaming around Curry Village. Since Hantavirus killed two and sickened four people who stayed there, visitors are taking precautions. Jill Johnson lodged at campgrounds close by and brought masks. The virus is carried in the feces and urine of deer mice and can become airborne. “I don't really think the mice are gonna stay isolated to one particular area of cabins, not sure how that's affected,” said Johnson. Kim Barrett is part of a bicycle group from San Jose that’s been coming up every Labor Day weekend for the last few years. This year, the park looks and feels different. “It’s definitely quieter, not as many people. We all brought up disinfectants and Lysol. Telling the kids to not wander around too far into the campground,” said Barrett. “There’s not hysteria about it. Obviously when you say virus people are scared,” said husband ...

Poetry, Architecture, and Dance, Combined
Harvard Magazine - almost 5 years
In one scene, the pitch-black auditorium reverberates with the desolate sound of a droning sonar—and nothing else. In another, headphoned dancers wiggle onto the stage, gyrating their bodies to songs on their iPods, lost in their own worlds of music. In a third, off-stage doors slam as dancers march across an open floor, pausing one by one to shout out expressions such as, “Is this it?” Last weekend’s trifecta of modern dance performances at Farkas Hall was indeed it. The Office for the Arts event marked dance director Jill Johnson’s biggest Harvard show since taking charge of the program last fall. A mix of emotion, passion, innovation, and ethereal movement, Spring Performances is the culmination of a five-week collaboration among Johnson, Dance Program artist-in-residence Christopher Roman, and more than 20 students. Comprising three separate works—The Sum of Missing Parts, Third Rail, and The Sound of Distance in Itself—the show drew upon poetry, design, architecture, and litera ...
