In one week, LIU will be hosting the annual George Polk Awards in journalism! 📰

According to the University’s website, “the George Polk Awards were established in 1949 by LIU to commemorate George Polk, a CBS correspondent murdered in 1948 while covering the Greek civil war. The awards, which place a premium on investigative and enterprising reporting that gains attention and achieves results, are conferred annually to honor special achievement in journalism.”

For the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, the Polk Awards ceremony will be held next Friday in-person at the Yale Club of Manhattan where distinguished guests from around the world will gather to recognize this year’s top reporters in the field.

Where is Donda 2? 🎵

If you’re a fan of Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, you know that his album Donda was a complete success. So much so that he subsequently announced a sequel to the wildly popular album, but it never hit shelves.

Staff Reporter, Alexander DeLeon, reports on the circumstances behind Ye’s withholding of the album which has since been limited to exclusive music players called Stem Players.

Why did Ye choose to release his album in this medium?

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! From LIU ... but not that LIU. (More on that after the holidays from the Class of 1990 Facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1440945796095966)
Extraordinary Story for the Holidays. L.I.U. Graduate Talks with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America and discusses her transition from homeless teen to Social Worker. (Make room at The Inn.) (https://www.goodmorningamerica.com/.../homeless-teen-now...)
Happy Halloween! Here is an article from the archives of the Long Island Press entitled-Long Island Haunts: 13 Creepiest Haunted Places On Long Island. #13 SHOULD BE NO SURPRISE TO L.I.U. FOLKS:
Say hello to an up and coming Norwegian director who is also a Long Island University graduate. Peter Holmsen (actually Petter Hølmsen if you prefer) was the 2014 Valedictorian at CW Post. He has gone on to do some interesting things as a director and writer primarily in the horror genre. That's according to Karina-ScreamQueen-Adelgaard on her Heaven of Horror reviews site: "POST MORTEM: NO ONE DIES IN SKARNES is a new Netflix series from Norway. (T)here’s subtle humor that really drives it all home. The main story is essentially an alternative vampire story. You’ll see no fangs, but the craving for blood is very much there. Also, those sharpened senses, which can be a real problem, when you seem to suddenly be surrounded by people chewing very loudly. Frankly that last line seems to be used by other critics for this series. They may be reading off of the press release and found it just too tempting to edit? Well, here is the OFFICIAL trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gC8wHu6qt9s&t=15s Anyone who streams Netflix and can binge a few of the Season 1 episodes, give us a review? That would be a loyal L.I.U. thing to do and it might be a real community service also. Kevin Bergin, Pharmacy/Hudson, admin. Class of 1990 Facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1440945796095966
Long Island University Football: The Risks/Rewards of Big Time Opponents The first three Long Island University (LIU) football games for the 2021 season are all against Division I-A or FBS opponents. Between these three "paydays", the university should anticipate a total financial windfall in excess of $1 million dollars. The monetary numbers work out like this: -September 2nd @ Florida International University: $240,000 * -September 11th @ University of West Virginia: $475,000 * -September 18th @ University at Miami (Ohio): $300,000 * (Additionally, these are all road games too.) Let's look at how LIU fits into the changing world of college sports. New to Division I-AA Long Island University played an abbreviated, COVID-19 related, 2020-21 Spring program. There, the Sharks went 2-2 against Division I-AA/ FCS conference opponents. Prior to that recent truncated schedule, they had played their inaugural FCS season in 2019 and went a dismal 0-10. This was only their 2nd season on this higher tier of collegiate football; In the prior 25 year period, between 1993 & 2018, the then LIU Pioneers played Division II football. (Division II is described as an intermediate-level division of competition in the NCAA). [Note: There are no plans for the school to move up to I-A status. As stated in a department written response, "The whole Northeast Conference, LIU's home conference, would have to make that commitment, and all 8 schools are pretty set on where we are."] Coach Resigns After 23 Years Bryan Collins announced his decision on Twitter earlier this summer that he will resign as head coach of the football team after 23 seasons in control. Collins tweeted in June: “This week I decided to turn the page. It has been a true honor ... Thank you for 20+ years with great coaches, players and staff.’’ When contacted by Newsday, Coach Collins declined to expand on which factors led to his resignation. ** Jonathan Gill, who was the passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach, was named interim head coach. For those who do not follow college football? FBS football climaxes with the plethora of college bowl games that permeate the late December and New Year’s Eve holiday season. One of the Sharks’ first games, this September, will be against the University of West Virginia, who are in a "5 Power Conference"-albeit the weakest one at present-these five conferences generally provide the vast majority of schools/teams that compete for the national collegiate championship. Spring Football, also referred to as a kind of preseason training for Big-Time college programs, is increasingly seen as a money losing operation. More and more games are being scheduled between these two distinctly different levels of competition to begin the regular Fall season. It is also seen as a way to ease-in to Division I-A seasons with some relatively easy guaranteed victories (against I-AA/FCS). *** Physical Safety of Smaller Programs Playing Bigger Schools Data was collected from I-AA athletic trainers consistently involved in paydays or guarantee games. Because athletic trainers work to prevent injuries, the opportunity to hear rich narratives from them was the foundation of a recent study from the University of New Mexico. The majority of FCS athletic trainers (67%) said their student-athletes suffer from increased soreness and are (more) banged up following games against more dominant FBS schools. "The majority (of I-AA athletic trainers polled) also said that playing multiple FBS opponents in the same season is detrimental to the health of their student-athletes. The athletic trainers further reported that when their school had played Division I-A opponents in consecutive weeks, they saw an increase in injuries while competing against the top level of play." **** The 2021 LIU football season begins on September 2nd against Florida International University.

I hate to be critical, but the "shark" mascot/logo looks more like a mermaid. The newspaper, on the other hand, looks damn good. Keep up the good work.
