NSA reveals it used to have a Clown Club

Posted: at 5:49 am

Brittany Hillen

We’ve seen many NSA-related details surface, but none of them quite as unexpected as the latest revelation: the agency used to have a Clown Club. Less you think that is some cheery codename for a secret collective or program, it’s not — it was a literal Clown Club. It sounds almost too odd to be true, but the information was revealed by the NSA itself in an unclassified scan titled “Cryptologic Almanac 50th Anniversary Series” posted on its website. The club no longer exists, but its legacy apparently lives on.

The report starts off, “Once upon a time, a man named Ned Clark worked for the National Security Agency. And while he had an ordinary job at the Agency like everyone else, that’s not how he left his mark here: he gained his NSA fame through clowning.”

Clark, having served in the Marine Corps before joining the NSA in the 50s, worked as a typewriter repairman at the Agency. By the late 50s, Clark took up clowning under the moniker “Uncle Ned” as part of his work with children and charities. His life as a clown eventually spilled over to his job at the agency, where he “could always be counted on to entertain at the NSA Christmas Party or any other NSA family party.”

In the 1970s, the agency had its own NSA Clown Club, of which Clark was the president. The Club contained the Clarkwheel Clowns, and was intended to “promote and develop among the membership interest, knowledge, and skill in being a clown.” Clark is said to have given at least one lecture on clowning at the Friedman Auditorium during his time.

Clark passed away at the age of 67 in 1992, and at a time that isn’t known the club was disbanded. However, as of 2002, one of the club’s members going by the name “Snaggs” was still working for the NSA.

Huntington Willard named president and director of Marine Biological Laboratory

Posted: December 9, 2014 at 5:44 am

Huntington Willard, an innovative leader in the fields of genetics and genome biology who has built comprehensive research centers at leading institutions, has been appointed the next president and director of the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Mass.

President Robert J. Zimmer, who is also chairman of the MBLs Board of Trustees, announced the appointment to the MBL and University communities. MBL is an affiliate of the University of Chicago, a relationship designed to yield novel avenues for scientific discovery and education at both institutions.

At the MBL, Willard will lead one of the worlds foremost centers for biological research, international collaboration and education. Willard, currently the Arts & Sciences Professor of Biology and Genome Sciences at Duke University, will begin his appointment at the MBL on Jan. 1, 2015.

Willard has earned a reputation as a groundbreaking scientist, a strong leader and builder of complex academic initiatives, as well as a talented educator who has received multiple teaching awards. From 2003 to 2014 he was the founding director of the Duke Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy, a highly interdisciplinary unit that spanned the life sciences, engineering, medicine, social sciences and the humanities. For that program, Willard recruited 35 faculty members to Duke across 21 departments and established broad institutional strength in the genome sciences. He had previously chaired the Department of Genetics at Case Western Reserve University, where he also built a widely respected program of research and education.

As a researcher, Willard has explored many facets of genetics and genome biology, with a particular interest in the structure and function of chromosomes, the epigenetic regulation of gene silencing, and the evolution and organization of complex genomes. He is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and has won many awards for genetics scholarship, including the William Allan Award from the American Society of Human Genetics.

Hunt Willard is an outstanding scholar and a proven scientific leader who has created programs that have earned international respect, said Zimmer. He exemplifies the values that guide the Marine Biological Laboratory and the University of Chicagowide-ranging collaboration, eagerness to explore and define new fields of study, and a dedication to discovery through engaged education. We are delighted to welcome him to this community, and confident that he will lead the MBL in a way that preserves its strengths, creates new opportunities for growth, and takes advantage of the relationship with the University of Chicago.

Willard said he was attracted by the MBLs historic role as a beacon for scientists from around the world, including its renowned summer courses and creative year-round programs of research and education.

Im honored to be named the next president and director of MBL, Willard said. The MBL has enjoyed such a strong tradition of integrating research and education since its founding, and offers wonderful opportunities to develop and implement novel strategies for tackling some of the most pressing questions in life sciences and biomedical research today. The highly interdisciplinary nature of its year-round and visiting scientists and students offers unique combinations of scholarship, teamwork and adaptability that cant be easily matched elsewhere.

I cant imagine a place that better illustrates the values of integrated research and education that are important to meas a scientist, an educator and as a leader. I look forward with great enthusiasm to joining this community, at both MBL and the University of Chicago.

Jennifer Morgan, an MBL scientist and associate director of the Eugene Bell Center for Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering, said Willard is a perfect fit for the MBLs intellectual culture.

Freedom Alliance Provides College Scholarships to 270 Children of Military Heroes

Posted: November 7, 2013 at 8:43 pm

Dulles, VA (PRWEB) November 07, 2013

Freedom Alliance, an educational and charitable organization that supports military personnel and their families, has awarded college scholarships to 270 children of military heroes in 2013. The scholarships total $1.3 million and were awarded to students whose parent is a Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine who was killed or permanently disabled in a combat mission or training accident.

“These scholarships are made available,” explained Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon, “because these students have a parent who sacrificed life or limb defending our country. Both the parents and the students have made tremendous sacrifices for our country which we hope to recognize and honor with these scholarships.”

In total, Freedom Alliance has now awarded more than $7 million in scholarship assistance to students to help them finance their college educations.

“This Scholarship Fund,” Kilgannon said, “is a living memorial to military heroes. Each scholarship is a practical act of support for a family that has made incredible contributions to our country. Each scholarship is also recognition for a patriots sacrifice and a reminder to his or her child that the sacrifice of their parent will never be forgotten by a grateful nation.”

Among the scholarship recipients are students whose parent served in Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, the Persian Gulf War, the 1983 terrorist attack on the Marine Barracks in Beirut, the Battle of Mogadishu in 1993, and other military campaigns in defense of our country.

Kalie Walters is one of Freedom Alliances scholarship recipients. She recently graduated from the University of West Florida, and is currently serving an internship with the organization. Walters father, Tech. Sgt. Howard Walters, died in a helicopter crash in November of 2003 in Afghanistan. He was assigned to the 20th Special Operations Squadron in Hurlburt Field, Florida. Walters was 13 years old at the time of her fathers death.

The Scholarship Fund is one of several programs sponsored by Freedom Alliance in support of those who serve our country. To be eligible for the Freedom Alliance Scholarship, students must have a parent that has become 100 percent disabled or deceased due to an operational mission or training accident, and under the age of 26.

Students who may qualify for the Freedom Alliance scholarship can visit our website at http://www.fascholarship.com or the organizations main website at http://www.freedomalliance.org.
