RYE BROOK, N.Y. - Middle school girls from throughout the country were honored earlier this month by ThinkSTEAM, an organization founded by Lakeland High School student Jothi Ramaswamy. The organization handed out awards for its ThinkBIG Challenge at the Business Council of Westchester office on Wednesday, Aug. 3.

The ThinkBIG Challenge was designed to ignite students’ interest in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). It challenged girls to explore the importance of STEM by creating a 1-4 minute video inspiring girls to enter STEM fields and/or how this can be done through the arts.

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...

What More Can Murphy Do?

June 21, 2018

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them. I was wondering just what new laws he would propose? How many more laws are needed? How about enforcing the numerous laws already on the books, which, by the way, isn’t being done?
