Northwood Resident Returns Following Intensive Research Project

 

Emilee Gancarz of Northwood, a member of the class of 2018 majoring in environmental engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), was a member of a student team that recently completed an intense, hands-on research project in Denmark. The project was titled Air Pollution on Prinsessegade. In their project summary, the students wrote, “ In this project, we assessed the viability of identified air pollution and traffic congestion solutions.”

 

At WPI, all undergraduates are required to complete a research-driven, professional-level project that applies science and technology to addresses an important societal need or issue. About two-thirds of students complete a project at one of the university’s 40-plus off-campus project centers, which are located around the world. A signature element of the innovative undergraduate experience at WPI, the project-based curriculum offers students the opportunity to apply their scientific and technical knowledge to develop thoughtful solutions to real problems that affect the quality of people’s lives-and make a difference before they graduate.

 

“The WPI project-based curriculum’s focus on global studies brings students out of the classroom and their comfort zones and into the global community to apply their knowledge to solve real problems,” said Professor Kent Rissmiller, interim dean of the WPI Interdisciplinary and Global Studies Division. “Students are immersed in all aspects of a different culture, from the way people live and work to the values they hold to the foods they eat-all valuable perspectives for surviving and thriving in today’s global marketplace. They also learn the meaning and magic of teamwork; make a real and meaningful difference in their host community; and gain a competitive edge for any resume, or graduate or professional school application.”

 


 

This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature:
1969’s “Death Rides A Horse”

 

Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday night (June 9 & 10)  for our “LRPA After Dark” presentation of 1969’s spaghetti western “Death Rides a Horse,” starring Lee Van Cleef and John Phillip Law.

 

“Death Rides a Horse” is a tale of murder, betrayal and retribution.  A young boy named Bill witnesses the degradation and murder of his family at the hands of outlaws. Fifteen years later, Bill (Law) is an angry, vengeful man bent on finding and killing the men who massacred his family. Bill meets up with Ryan (Van Cleef), an ex-con bounty hunter with his own dark reasons for tracking down the criminals. As the two unlikely partners get closer to their prey, Bill slowly uncovers secrets from Ryan’s past.

 

Though it may not be one of the most famous examples of its genre, “Death Rides a Horse” is a fan-favorite spaghetti western, filled shoot-outs, low-lives, and bloodlust. The film features a gorgeous score by the renowned film composer Ennio Morricone, as well as a memorable and understated performance by Van Cleef, truly one of the stars of that genre. You know you want to watch it -- so grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this gem from the cinematic past.
