Cary’s Data Jam jams on, virtually
MILLBROOK — The 2020 Hudson Data Jam will be held this year, as it has since the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies began hosting it in 2014, with some alterations. This year, due to COVID-19 crisis, the competition will be a virtual event. Data Jam is open to all middle school and high school students, bringing together art and science, to entice more interest among students in all things scientific.
The effort is part of a national network of Data Jams. Originally announced earlier this year, changes have been made as distance learning is now the new norm while schools are closed.
The concept of Data Jam is to interpret a “data story” from a data set in a creative way; each submission is judged by a panel that includes a scientist, an artist and an educator.
There is a new category available to students in kindergarten through grade 12, the Family Data Jam, which allows families to work on a project as a team. The deadline to register is Wednesday, May 13. On Friday, June 19, the Virtual Data Jam Expo and Awards Ceremony will be held via Zoom from 5 to 7 p.m. Originally ceremonies were to be held at Marist College in Poughkeepsie. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top middle school and high school projects; a special award will be given to the top Family Data Jam project.
For details, and to register, go to www.caryinstitutue.org/eco-inquiry/data jam or to facebook.com/HudsonDataJam. Questions may be e-mailed to [email protected] or messaged through Data Jam on Facebook.

With the Cricket Valley Energy power plant’s construction nearing completion, residents took matters into their own hands on Saturday, Nov. 16, with the intention of shutting down the plant and urging New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo to close it for good.

In the early hours of the morning, local farmers Creek Iverses and Ben Schwartz and Brooklyn residents Monica Hunken and George Elliot arrived at the power plant where they climbed a 275-foot smokestack at 5 a.m.

Meanwhile, protesters from ResistCVE organized a tractor blockade to bar Cricket Valley Energy employees from entering, temporarily halting construction. Plant employees were sent home. In addition to the 10 people who locked themselves to the tractor, the blockade was supported by 50 other residents.

Dafna Mizrahi is a chef, and a well-known chef at that. She has cooked at some pretty great restaurants, including Monte’s Local Kitchen and Tap Room in Amenia, and she has twice been on The Food Network’s “Chopped,” leaving as champion. As much as she loves to cook, it’s sharing her skill with youngsters that is her first love and passion.

“I know how special it was to spend time being creative in the kitchen when I grew up,” she recently said in a prepared statement. “I want to bring that same feeling to children while teaching them the importance of making good [food] choices.”
