44th Academy Awards

The 44th Academy Awards were presented April 10, 1972, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. The ceremonies were presided over by Alan King, Sammy Davis Jr. and Jack Lemmon. One of the highlights of the evening was the appearance of Betty Grable, battling cancer at the time, who made one of her last public appearances, she appeared along with one of her leading men from the 1940s, singer Dick Haymes, to present the musical scoring awards. Grable died the following year; this was the first time in the history of the Awards in which the nominees were shown on superimposed pictures while being announced. Nominations announced on February 22, 1972. Winners are highlighted in boldface and indicated with a double dagger. Charlie Chaplin received an honorary award at this ceremony, for "the incalculable effect he has had in making motion pictures the art form of this century". Chaplin, living in self-imposed exile in Switzerland for twenty years, came back to the United States to re-market his older films and to receive this award.

When introduced to the audience, Chaplin received a twelve-minute standing ovation, the longest in Academy Awards history. 29th Golden Globe Awards 1971 in film 14th Grammy Awards 23rd Primetime Emmy Awards 24th Primetime Emmy Awards 25th British Academy Film Awards 26th Tony Awards

2014 Atlantic Sun Women's Basketball Tournament

The 2014 Atlantic Sun Women's Basketball Tournament was the 36th edition of the Atlantic Sun Conference Championship. It took place from March 2014 through March 16, 2014 in several arenas. All games took place at the higher of the two teams competing; the A-Sun Championship was a six-day single-elimination tournament. The top eight teams competed in the championship; as part of their transition to Division I from Division II, Northern Kentucky was not eligible for post season play until 2017, including the A-Sun tournament. The winner of the tournament earned the A-Sun's automatic bid into the 2014 NCAA Tournament. 2013-14 NCAA Division I women's basketball season Atlantic Sun Women's Basketball Tournament Atlantic Sun Men's Basketball Championship Details

William A. Haseltine

William A. Haseltine is an American biologist and philanthropist, he is known for his groundbreaking work on the human genome. Haseltine was a professor at Harvard Medical School where he founded two research departments on cancer and HIV/AIDS. Haseltine is a founder of several biotechnology companies including Cambridge Biosciences, The Virus Research Institute, ProScript, LeukoSite, Diversa, X-VAX, Demetrix, he was a founder chairman and CEO of Human Genome Sciences, a company that pioneered the application of genomics to drug discovery. He is the president of the Haseltine Foundation for Science and the Arts and is the founder and president of ACCESS Health International, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving access to high quality health worldwide, he was listed by Time Magazine as one of the world's 25 most influential business people in 2001 and one of the 100 most influential leaders in biotechnology by Scientific American in 2015. Haseltine has devoted his career to improvements in human health.

He was born to a scientific family. His grandfather was an engineer, his father a Ph. D. physicist. He was raised on a naval base, the Naval Ordnance Test Station at China Lake in the Mojave Desert of California surrounded by weapons scientists and engineers, his older sister Florence received both a PhD in biophysics and an MD, his younger brother Eric a PhD in neurobiology. His younger sister Susan became a specialist in computer systems, his early life is described in the book Rapture by Brian Alexander and Gene Masters by Ingrid Winkelgren. Haseltine graduated from Burroughs High School in 1962, he received a BA in chemistry from UC Berkeley in 1966 and a PhD in biophysics from Harvard University in 1973. Haseltine was pre-medical student at the University of California majoring in chemistry, he published two scientific papers as an undergraduate, one on the composition of the Martian atmosphere in Science Magazine. And a second on the use of isotope shifted lasers for communication to outer space in Applied Physics Letters.

He was graduated at the top of his class. Upon graduation he decided to learn as much as possible about science as possible towards creating new ways to treat and cure disease. At Harvard University he worked under the direction of James D. Watson, co-discoverer of the structure of DNA, Walter Gilbert, who received a Nobel prize for developing a method to determine the sequence of DNA. Work in this laboratory gave him an excellent grounding in the tools of what was the new field of molecular biology; as a graduate student he worked on fundamental aspects of regulation of expression of genes. He elucidated the means by which bacteria signal the shift from growth when food is abundant to maintenance when food is scarce, the topic of his PhD thesis titled Magic Spot and the Stringent Response. During his graduate studies, Haseltine was active in his opposition to the war in Vietnam, he wrote several articles on the use of technology in the Vietnam War and broke the "Agent Orange Defoliation" story in a cover article in the New Republic.

He worked with the American Friends Service Committee to create a resource center for those who wished to understand their own communities’ involvement in the war and lectured against the war throughout the country for several years. He was a founder of "Science for the People". In 1973, Haseltine joined the laboratory of David Baltimore at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a post-doctoral fellow. There he began to work on fundamental aspects of how retroviruses known to cause cancer in animals reproduce, his work, in collaboration with several other scientists, provided unexpected insights into the process of retrovirus replication and was recognized as innovative in publication in leading scientific journals. This work prepared him for research on human disease and retroviruses, both important in his career, he interrupted his postdoctoral studies at MIT the summer of 1973 to serve as a visiting professor at the University of Copenhagen Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, where he continued his work on the regulation of gene expression in bacteria.

In 1976, he joined the faculty of the new comprehensive cancer center, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute affiliated with Harvard Medical School. He became a professor in the Harvard Medical School Department of Pathology and shortly thereafter a professor in the Cancer Biology Department of the Harvard School of Public Health, he founded the equivalent of two academic departments: the Laboratory of Biochemical Pharmacology devoted to work on cancer cause and treatment, the Division of Human Retrovirology, dedicated and finding treatments for HIV/AIDS. As a professor, he published more than two hundred research articles in leading scientific journals and edited several books, he mentored dozens of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, many of whom have gone on to successful careers of their own at Harvard and elsewhere. He taught advanced level courses in cancer biology and HIV/AIDS to medical students. For many years he taught a course "Biology and Social Issues" for Harvard non-science undergraduates and was a tutor and thesis advisor for several generations of Harvard undergraduate biochemistry students.

Retrovirus replication continued to be a focus of his early research as a Harvard professor. This research led to fundamental insights including the "end to end jumping" of the initial copy of the genome, he began to focus on two related issues: how retroviruses induce cancer in animals, whether or not retroviruses cause cancer and other diseases in humans. His laboratory discovered that the key determinant of the ability of retroviruses, those
