Very nice... Harvard has made a commitment to providing closed captioning on all of its live events. This is not required just yet from the FCC on straight to the web live sports productions, but good to see they are doing it! http://sportsvideo.org/main/blog/2015/08/harvard-bolsters-control-room-to-handle-dual-productions-invests-in-closed-captioning/#sthash.KmwNoUIF.dpuf #closedcaptioning

Construction in the athletic department at Harvard University certainly shows signs of growth as the Crimson have completed renovations on its centralized control room that will now allow for the department’s video production team to produce multiple events from the same space.

"Life and language are alike sacred. Homicide and verbicide - that is, violent treatment of a word with fatal results to its legitimate meaning, which is its life - are alike forbidden." - Oliver Wendell Holmes. Our Word of the Week was coined by Oliver Wendell Holmes in 1858 and popularized by English author C.S. Lewis. It literally means "the murder of a word"! #LanguageFacts
