News Text:
Manhattan College professor and philosophy blogger Mitchell Aboulafia said the ranking system as it currently stands does more harm than good. Citing methodological problems, the potential for cheating and an overemphasis on the analytic tradition of philosophy, Aboulafia said it would be better for the field to rely on more objective measures of departmental quality — such as faculty publications and graduate student job placement.

Data analytics With the rise in the importance of data analysis, there are definitely jobs to be had, says Rachel Cirelli, director of the Center for Career Development at Manhattan College. These jobs may be at health care or financial firms, such as data analyst or economic analyst — or may analyze data in a field that the graduate has a secondary interest in, such as communications and marketing. Public service With a social science graduate’s interest in human relations or social justice, they make ideal candidates for AmeriCorps jobs, Cirelli says, especially if they have volunteer experience. The Peace Corps and other government positions can give these grads opportunities to combine social justice with service.

News Text:
For those who bother to look for it and appreciate it, wildlife is everywhere in the Bronx. From my bedroom window, I can watch red-tailed hawks perch on the weathervane above Manhattan College. I have seen groups of deer browsing on Hunter Island, and coyote tracks in Pelham Bay Park. We have the famous Bronx black squirrels. In winter, bald eagles patrol the frozen Hudson River in search of an easy fish dinner. On walks with my dog, I keep an eye out for skunks and raccoons. I even taught my wife how to convince a black-capped chickadee to land on her hand, as if she were Snow White.

The radical Islamists have been fighting to regain control of Afghanistan since being ousted by U.S. forces in 2001 and have been a source of instability against the Pakistani government along the two countries' border.

News Text:
In 2013, Howe met Sina Shahbazmohamadi, director of imaging at UConn’s Center for Clean Energy and Engineering, now an associate professor of mechanical engineering at Manhattan College in the Bronx. He had a suggestion. "In order to have a more robust, fool-proof, mechanism to duplicate these things, let’s use 3D printing," Shahbazmohamadi said. "The machine just reads our images, and turns them into the mouthpieces." The process allowed Shahbazmohamadi to digitally remove dings, dents, and cracks that existed in the originals, and even duplicate antique mouthpieces that no longer existed. "We had only the tenor mouthpiece for the saxophone," he said. "But digitally, we were able to adjust the sizes so that we create the mouthpieces for other versions, such as alto, baritone, and soprano -- but the real, antique mouthpieces, they do not exist."
