What news... July 30 - 31, 2008 ...

Two days left and I will be in MIT ... I will be in my Apartment.... where I will be staying for my studies in MIT ... I have visited the place before ... and I will taking with me all the kitchenware I will need ... I am excited to be there ... pretty much excited ... I have been waiting for a long time to have this dreams of mine coming true... Tang Apartment, 14th floor, approximately 10 minutes walk from Civil and Environmental Engineering department ... that it’s where I will be living ... well ... I will keep you updated about that ...
Certainly you may have been mad at me ... posting the info to late in the day ... I was having a good time attending a summer lecture in Hanover entitled Water: “Managing our most precious, yet precarious resource”... presented by Mrs. Marq de Villiers, Journalist, Editor and writer ... I have even got one his book entitled : “Water - The fate of our most precious resource” ... and the second presenter was Alice Outwater ... who graduated from MIT and who’s the Author of “Water: A natural History” ... It was fantastic ... amazing to be in that public lecture ... the general title of these series of lectures given in Hanover is “Positive Solutions” ... initiated by ILEAD (Institute for Lifelong Education at Dartmouth ... the session of today discussed human’s kind impact on water resources (ground waters, rivers, lakes and ocean) and the impact of diminishing clean water supplies on human health .they focused on the two overlapping water crisis: Supply and contamination. It had also examined the notion of who “owns’ water and its proper pricing, along with possible solutions involving demand (water policy) management and technology. Restoring the integrity of natural water systems ... working together with nature ... can result in cleaner, more plentiful water... Some solutions were given by the presenters that in order to end the main both water crisis ... water contamination and water supply ... we need active political will and enough funds ... to apply knowledge, intelligent, and technology we have ... using less water, treatment and reuse ... establish the ecosystem in order to respond to the burden of non-point water source pollution that is keeping our rivers, groundwater, lakes have poor water quality ... Let the nature doing its work in water quality control ... and still it is up to use to be in control of point water source pollution ...

Strange things I saw in NYC....

Different cultures ... different believing ... different culture values... I saw in NYC strange things, I have ever seen before ... According to my culture small kids are kept at the backs of their mothers ... or when there are able to walk they are given a chance for practice by themselves ... In NYC I saw dogs on leash ... the leash is a special loop that keeps dogs not going far while walking with their owners ... I saw a kid on leash too ... her/his mother was walking her/him like a dog ... it makes me tense but nothing I could do ... I suffered of that situation ... my heart was beating and I was furious ... I think before UNICEF comes to Africa or elsewhere for different projects to help children ... it should have one also in NYC where it has its world main office and address the immorality in some mothers hearts of NYC who walk their kids on leash like dogs ... also, I think the human rights watch should intervene for this case and address it in such way that human dignity keeps its value among family members ...
I always have a critical thinking about how human health considerations in whatever I see around me, is applied ... I mean especially in terms of protecting it against any kind of risk he/she may have at that place ... Based on this criticism ... I found strange the subways and roads underwater linking Manhattan with other parts of the city in the neighboring area... I have been in the deepest subway ... and above it were others... I was asking myself how much time can take to save people at that much depth if anything happens ... How much time can it take to sever people stuck on road passing under water ... You can imagine if it happens that there is a problem that cause collapsing of this infrastructures ... at both sides of the subway and people remain in middle of two soil portion fallen ... I think they can be dead ... before any intervention reaches them ... we have to always consider the tragedy of the world trade center and think of what may be done ... and see if some systems can be put in place ... may be some have already been developed but ... I saw any ... and I think my friends could have told me ... Anywhere those were the strangest things I saw since I arrived in USA ... and this is also the end of the stories about my NYC visit ... I hope you enjoyed them ...

Amazing things I saw in NYC...




I saw something important but free in New York ... free ride on New York Taxi boat from IKEA the Swedish furniture store in Brooklyn to the Ships museum in Manhattan ... for free ... you don’t have to pay ... you just have to go on line and get in ... IKEA paid for everybody targeting people from Manhattan who are willing to come to shop in their store... furniture are cheap ... IKAE is a place for everybody ... when on that boat I had different views of Manhattan, view of the statue of Liberty ... French gift to America ... presented to the people of United States in 1886 ... then you will pass nearby the Governors Island which is being transformed in Park ... From 1966 to 1996 the island served as a major United States Coast Guard installation ...
Africa continent has particular wildlife and nature ... In New York they have artificial waterfalls ... waterfalls in Africa like in my motherland Rwanda ... we have them in big number ... and there are pretty ... amazing ... meanwhile most of the people don’t see the beauty their express ... feel as there were meaningful ... all depends on how much money can everybody gain from tourism activities around ... everything is Natural ... but in NYC ... waterfalls are artificial ... not far from NYC ... They have Niagara falls ... small kids and other people who ever saw real waterfalls can drive down and have an alive view of waterfalls ... In Africa we have the famous waterfall all over the world ... shared between two countries Zambia and Zimbabwe ... Victoria falls ... Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders) is the name used by the local people and Victoria Falls is the later name given by Europeans (see pre-colonial history, below). Although Victoria Falls constitute neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, the claim it is the largest is based on a width of 1.7 kilometers (1 mi) and height of 108 meters (360 ft), forming the largest sheet of falling water in the world ... it also figures on the list of world heritage site ...
I also visited the Museum located in Alexander Hamilton House in NYC ... named in honor of Alexander Hamilton who had been the first USA secretary of treasury ... the founding father, economist and politics philosopher ... The U.S. Customs Service was established by the Fifth Act of the First Congress of the United States on July 31, 1789, and today, as U.S. Customs and Border Protection under the Department of Homeland Security, remains the nation’s oldest federal agency. Nowadays the former customs service office is used as The National Museum of the American Indian, George Gustav Heye Center … It is a wonderful Museum … full of amazing arts … drawings … sculptures … history of American Indians people … I am sure different pictures attached will tell you more and rise your curiosity in visiting such places ….
It is actually not easy to tell all the amazing things I saw in NYC … but I think I tried and all depends to one’s personal appreciations … I can’t forget bridges … joining Manhattan to the remaining part of the city … I have ever seen bridge like the ones I saw in NYC … there are special bridges … e.g. Manhattan Bridge … with a total length of 6,855 feet (2,089m) … with a span of 1,470 ft (448m) … the bridge was opened to traffic December 31, 1909 … next year will be 100 years anniversary of Manhattan bridge… proving sustainability of structures in USA … designed by bridge Engineer Raphael Modjeski … It has four vehicle lanes on the upper level (split between two roadways). There are three vehicle lanes, four subway tracks, a walkway and a bikeway on the lower level. The upper level, originally used for streetcars, has two lanes in each direction, and the lower level can be one-way in peak direction or have two lanes in one direction and the other in the opposite direction...

Sample of some Impressive NYC landmarks...

Six days of NYC visit stories ... the NYC visit story is long in the telling ... I saw to many things during that visit ... today I am focusing to the most impressing landmarks ... I saw in NYC ...
The first impressive landmark I saw at the first day I arrived in NYC was the Times Square ... NYC landmark ... defined by its animate digital advertisements ... I saw it in different music videos produced in NYC e.g. Song of Usher featuring Alicia Keys titled “my boo” ... Many tourists are visiting that place ... during the day time and nights in order to admire different lights ... MTV office is also located at that place ... probably you may want to know other places all over the world that may be compared to Times square and who are also considered like landmarks of the cities in with they are located in ... Champs-Élysées in Paris, Trafalgar Square in London, and Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo ... Formerly Longacre Square, Times Square was renamed after the Times Building (now One Times Square), the former offices of The New York Times, in April 1904 ... Times Square has achieved the status of an iconic world landmark and has become a symbol of its city. Others impressive landmarks ... The Empire states building, Flatiron building, Chrysler buildings and United Nation building ... these buildings are also NYC landmark... Their all have different and particular structures and special locations ... The Flatiron Building, which when constructed was called the Fuller Building, was one of the tallest buildings in New York City upon its completion in 1902 and is considered one of the first skyscrapers ... Empire state building ... Its name is derived from the nickname for the state of New York. It stood as the world's tallest building for more than forty years, from its completion in 1931 until construction of the World Trade Center's North Tower was completed in 1972. Following the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, the Empire State Building again became the tallest building in New York City... Chrysler building ... Standing at 319 meters (1,047 ft),[2] it was briefly the world's tallest building before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building in 1931. However, the Chrysler Building remains the world's tallest brick building.[3][4] After the destruction of the World Trade Center, it was again the second-tallest building in New York City until December 2007, when the spire was raised on the 365.8-metre (1,200 ft) Bank of America building, pushing the Chrysler Building into third position ... UN building ... located in “International Territory” of New York City ... its borders are First Avenue west, East 42nd Street south, East 48th Street north and the East River east. It has been built between 1949 – 1950 (http://en.wikipedia.org/)... It is very impressing to see how people were able to implement impressing projects like the ones discussed above in 1900’s ... Can you try to imagine what people are able to do at the moment? ... of course some are good in imaginations and soon we will have others special landmarks ... others are exploring the sky ... others are developing technology ... the science of simulation ... prediction ... we can then know what may happen if we engage ourselves in doing something ... e.g. everything is designed by computer based technologies before implementation ... people are able to see what is next ... what may happen ... then do improvements before implementation ... in 1900’s most of the work was done on paper ... people seating and writing ... drawing their model designs using hands ... nowadays we are using computer based technology ... certainly scientist of 1900’s time were smart compared to what we are today ... but I am sure if they come back today ... and be asked about the actual sciences ... they will respond that scientists nowadays are smart than they did ... The time is still moving forward ... and tomorrow we will have other specialties ... new day, new brains and new strong imagination ...

From the central Park ... To World Trade Center...





Tallest buildings I have ever seen before ... oh my God ... Are they strong? Yes of course ... very strong ... replied my friend Peter ... I was thinking that they will fall down on me (joke) ... it is really amazing to see the talented Engineers ... Architects ... good in designing structures ... building the highest building ... Trump Hotel ... WTC7 ... it was amazing ... I remembered the buildings in Kampala City and Nairobi ... Africa Cities .... I remember when I first saw them ...ohh ... I couldn’t believe my eyes ... In my motherland the highest building has 10 floors using American system of labeling the building floors ... which is 9 floors in the system that we use in Rwanda ... the highest building in Kampala has around between 15 – 20 floors ... I couldn’t count them they were too many ... imagine if I have to count them for buildings in Manhattan ... my neck will be down before counting the last floor ... Anywhere up to me Manhattan is a city of arts ... arts in everything ... building structures, Central Park, Sculptures around the city, UN building, Empire states building, museums ... all these I cited are some of the Manhattan landmark ... proving how it is a city of arts ... As mentioned by the title I saw all this while we were going to visit World Trade Center ... I saw the tragedy on TV ... watched documentary films about it ... but still they were not enough to make me feeling like I did when I arrived at the place ... saw buildings who were part of the World Trade Center that remained ... it touches my heart ... it was really a tragedy ... ever seen ... I saw the highest building ... standing at their bottom ... imagine them falling down ... falling down ... it was really scaring ... unbelievable, hypnotizing situation ... on that day the World became small ... because Americans were chocked ... the world population were chocked ... you couldn’t imagine elsewhere ... it was like to flee in face of danger ... danger was everywhere ... America was mourning for people who were in the buildings ... I felt it ... Nowadays New York has different objects as signs to remind people what happened ... it is not only pictures and movies... you find near Battery tunnel a fire of mourning for the people in WTC ... the fire was turned on September 11, 2001 ... up to now it is still on ... and will always be on ... a museum is being built ... I have also seen a cross in metal ...found while they were cleaning the place ...a metal with a form of cross ... found at ground zero ... a sign of comfort for all ... it will be taken to WTC museum when it will be completed ... I was nearby WTC7 and was told that the buildings destroyed were double of WTC7 ... August 5, 1966 World Trade Center was on ... seven year later April 4, 1973, the ribbon cutting ceremony was held ... the total cost was $ 900 million ... located in the heart of New York City Downtown financial district ... with 13.4 million square feet (1.24 million m²) of office space, almost four percent of Manhattan's entire office inventory at that time (Wikipedia) ... with 198 elevators (both buildings), 110 floors, 417 m high ... New York City was proud ... America was proud of that landmark ... the most proud people were designers ... Architect Minoru Yamasaki and Engineer of structure Leslie Robertson ... and the owners , Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, were also proud of their achievement ... September 11, 2001 ... all the achievements were turned in sand ... seven years of construction ... 3 hours of total destruction ... everybody was mourning for the people and the great achievements deleted from the Earth ... certainly it is very easy to destroy than to build ... When I was visiting that place ... I was also having in mind what happen in my country where 1 million of people were killed in 100 days ... it was unbelievable and it will still be ... you have to be strong and then believe ... people are totally different ... ones are good in constructing, building the history, keeping the memory, creative, artists, good in everything ... other ones are good in destroying, killing, raping, fighting ... it is up to us to choose what will be our side ... and then after figure out who succeeded ... who’s the best ... it is complex and confusing ... but we are proud that meanwhile we survived ... no matter how scaring, vigorous, terrific was the tragedy, different situations we passed through ... we have again the future in our hands ... dream prosperity, sow dedication, achieve sustainability and mark you name somewhere ... we will always have in our memories how exemplary you have been for us ... you names will always be a part of the history ... the World will know you as the great man ... to be continuous ...

From Coney Brooklyn Island ... To the central Park ...

Central Park is a large public, urban park (843 acres, 3.41 km², 1.32 mi²; a rectangle 2.6 statute miles by 0.5 statute mile, or 4.1 km × 830 m) in the borough of Manhattan in New York City, almost 4/5 of the size of Vancouver's Stanley Park and just over 1/3 of the size of London's Richmond Park. With about twenty-five million visitors annually, Central Park is the most visited city park in the United States,[2] and its appearance in many movies and television shows has made it famous. The Central Park is bordered on the north by West 110th Street, on the south by West 59th Street, on the west by Eighth Avenue. Along the park's borders however, these are known as Central Park North, Central Park South, and Central Park West respectively. Fifth Avenue retains its name along the eastern border of the park. Most of the areas immediately adjacent to the park are known for impressive buildings and valuable real estate. The park was designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and architect Calvert Vaux, who went on to collaborate on Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Central Park has been a National Historic Landmark since 1963.(Retrieved from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_Park, July 24, 2008). I visited the Central Park ... the famous park in New York and know all over the world ... it is a wonderful place ... I saw in different things I ever had seen before ... it was amazing ... People who are visiting the Park are from all sides of the world ... Asians, Africans, Europeans, South Americans, Americans, Australia, etc ... It is really a good combination ... you identify that when people pass behind you with different accent and different language... I liked how everybody is free ... some people are eating, others running, couples in love, people working the dogs, etc ... it is unbelievable ... I was lovely to visit the park ... The transport around the Park is done by different people using bikes using ... Chinese style where the bike has three seats extend behind and covered ... it is amazing to see how the job is done by all categories of the people ... I saw Tango dance alive ... it was wonderful to see how people were happy dancing ... that Argentine music rhythm ... I saw a floor with names of people ... my friend told me that most of the names are of the people who helped to establish the park and others are of the people who paid for their manes to be written there ... I visited the Literary Walk ... know in different movies ... it is beautiful to see how trees from both sides cross their branches ... I was impressed by the number of sculptures I saw. Normally the center park has a total of 29 sculptures ... The sculpture that impressed me the most was the Bethesda fountain ... Bethesda Fountain was in the original "Greensward Plan", developed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the architectural middle of the park was called "The Water Terrace," for its placement beside The Lake, but the area became known as Bethesda Terrace after the fountain was unveiled in 1873. At the unveiling ceremony, the artist's brochure quoted a Biblical verse from the Gospel of St. John: Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called… Bethesda…whoever then first after the troubling of the waters stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. The fountain was designed and created by Emma Stebbins, who became the first woman to receive a sculptural commission in New York City when she was commissioned to create this fountain. It was designed and created in 1868, but wasn't unveiled until 1873, when the park was officially completed. In 1988 the Central Park Conservancy cleaned, repainted, and sealed the fountain with a protective coating, and it's washed and waxed annually in order to preserve it. The fountain can be found in the middle of the park, on the north side of 72nd Street. When we arrived at the fountain palace I was surprised by the number of people around ... it is really a lovely sculpture ... It can take days and nights if I go in details of whatever particular single thing I saw in the central park ... In brief it is a wonderful place to visit while in New York ... while in America ... I visited a small part of it so I will be back and visit the zoo and the rest of it so we still have a time to discuss more about it ...

New York City visit ... to be continuous...

Big Apple visit … continuous …

My first Ocean view … at Coney Brooklyn, NYC
Saturday July 19, 2008 … will never be forgot … it has been a part of my life history … I saw the Ocean … for Rwandese it is very difficult to imagine how it looks like … a landlocked country without access to the ocean … we saw it in movies, on TV, pictures … the lucky people have been in Kenya and Tanzania and saw it … others had opportunities like I do to go abroad and experience it … the view is infinity … you can’t seen beyond … it is wonderful … it is amazing … the future has always surprises for us and we don’t know how they will look like … or how we will feel about them … it is very hard to imagine and figure out … it is very hard for me to believe this … I know my story … it was very difficult to hope this new life … but I am experiencing and enjoying it … Coney Brooklyn is an amazing Island … with a huge beach … with unaccountable number of people enjoying the summer … they have amusement rides … different games … open beach … where each one of the people is busy his way … some fishing… others swimming ... playing games … taking pictures … it is a variety of amusement … whoever can be, cannot miss something to pleasing him/her … there are people in cyclone … bands singing … rock music … I enjoyed that visit … it shows the other face of the NYC … how people know also to make fan for themselves as they are hard working … Once you are in the center of the city … you see that people are very busy and don’t have a time … there are moving very fast … and their minds are away … people at Coney Island are from the city … they have smile on their faces … they are happy enjoying the beach … taking that time to forget about the job … and take a rest on the beach … That is a behavior the majority of Rwandese do not have … most of the people are concerns by what they will be eating tomorrow … due to a high number of poor people in rural areas … for us we are still on the way towards development and don’t have time … may be one day we will reach that level … as we know everything begins somewhere and we already have the beginning … I am sure that we are going towards our development objectives and will reach them …

To the big Apple … New York City (NYC) …

I left Boston South station; main Bus, train and subway station in Boston; at 10:00 PM with the “Luck Star Bus”… We drove four hours to reach NYC and had stopped in middle of the way to buy refreshments … the cost of the bus between Boston – NYC or NYC – Boston is $15. Fung Wah and Luck Star Bus are Chine’s companies that operate between Boston and New York. They are known for their low fares in comparison to other bus and rail routes between Boston and New York. Due to the low prices, they have become a popular way for young people and other travelers on a budget to travel between Boston and New York. For my experience I tried both bus. I went to New York with Luck Star bus and came back to Boston with Fung Wah. I haven’t liked Luck Star bus due to its seats that are small in height and space. Small heights fit in very easier but tall height have to find a position that can be comfortable for them … I was surprised by the seats … My legs couldn’t fit… may be the bus seats are designed according to the Chinese height … I was seating with a woman who was annoyed by my presence nearby her … when we stopped in middle of the way she came and asked a friend of mine that we were traveling together to switch round with her … my friend and I were both surprised with that behavior … may be she was generous or was due to another cause that I wasn’t able to identify … anywhere after four hours drive … we arrived in NYC – Chinatown … Peter’s girl friend; a friend of mine whom I was going to visit in NYC; came to join and welcome us. She took us for a surprise in Chinese restaurant within Chinatown… the restaurant is special because names of food are not familiar and the way the food will be looking like … is unknown … we ordered and waited to have our surprising food … we waited and finally had our order … I really don’t know how I can describe it … look to the attached pictures… we enjoyed the food … Chinatown … In NYC people from the same country tend to live in the same area of the city and Chinatown is most populated by people from chine who came to live and work in NYC… After enjoying our lunch … my friend we went together in NYC on the same bus left us; He was going for a different program … we went home for a rest … I was a bit tired … it was very meaningful to me to visit Peter … The first time we met he was in Rwanda and since then became friend … it is really wonderful to make friends wherever you are … wherever you go … doing so you are sowing seeds that you can’t know when they will grow … you only find it in different time of your life … grown and giving you great harvest … continuous …

Keepsake …


The old Pine …
“Lest the old tradition fail” This tablet marks the old Pine contemporary with the life of the college and Guardian of its traditions have been struck by lightning in 1887 and by a whirlwind in 1892 it was cut down in 1895. Replaced in 1912 … these words are from the block-notes near by the pine …

George Lundeen a native of Holdrege, Nebraska, born 1948.

Lundeen was a Fulbright-Hayes Scholar studying at the Academia de Belle Arte in Florence, Italy. He holds a master in Fine Arts from the University of Illinois and a bachelor of arts from Hastings College in Nebraska. George Lundeen established his sculpting studio in Loveland, Colorado in the mid-1970s where he currently lives and works. He has been commissioned to sculpt portraits and interpretive works alike for universities, municipalities, foundations, and corporations. Mr. Lundeen is a member of the National Academy of Design and the National Sculpture Society. I was on his sculpture in Dartmouth College made of Bronze … gift of members of the class of 1961 on the occasion of their thirty-fifth reunion … the sculpture is of Robert Frost … Robert Lee Frost (March 26, 1874January 29, 1963) was an American poet. He is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of the rural life and his command of American colloquial speech.[1] His work frequently employed themes from the early 1900s rural life in New England, using the setting to examine complex social and philosophical themes. A popular and often-quoted poet, Frost was honored frequently during his lifetime, receiving four Pulitzer Prizes

Bartlett Tower
The erection of this tower as a landmark more enduring than the old pine was succested by Samuel Colcord Bartlett eighth president of Dartmouth College. It was built by members of the successive undergraduate classes from 1885 to 1895 … these words are from the block-note fixed on the tower … can you see how taller it is? I haven’t seen any estimation of it height. At the moment it is 113 years old … can you imagine how sustainable it is? … Bartlett Tower society have been created … Named for the tower inspired by President Samuel Colcord Bartlett as a symbol of building upon the past for the benefit of the future, the Society celebrates this special form of philanthropy. A planned gift can help you realize the greatest personal and financial satisfaction from your philanthropy to Dartmouth … words from the web page of the society (http://www.dartmouth.edu/~gpo/plans/bartlett.html)

All these keepsakes outlined above left in my mind while I visited, along speech … where we found the following words …they are expressing hope, enthusiasm, courage, imagination, creativity ,sustainability, peace, arts, tradition, conservation of Dartmouth community … and American society … What did they left in your mind after readying the above paragraphs?
