The Met Names Nancy Chilton Chief External Relations Officer of the Costume Institute

ONWARD AND UPWARD: For many in the fashion crowd, Nancy Chilton’s name has been synonymous with The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. She has taken on a larger role, having been promoted to chief external relations officer for the Costume Institute.
For four years, Chilton has served as chief communications officer for the department. In her new post, she will continue to head communications for the Costume Institute’s exhibitions, special projects and the Met Gala. (The latter alone would seem like a year-round job, given the hundreds that turn out for the exhibition preview, and the more curated crowd for the black-tie event.)
Chilton will oversee additional institutional priorities, philanthropic programs, working closely on sponsorship relationships and other outreach with development. “Every year you talk about the exhibition for months beforehand, write about it and select images to tell the story. But the best moment is when you walk through the galleries with [curator in charge] Andrew Bolton and you see it actually come to life. And the day after the [Met] Gala walking through the galleries and actually seeing the public engaged with it and overhearing comments and reactions — those are always the best moments,” Chilton said.

Five Minutes With Alfre Woodard on Acting Gigs, Artists’ Roles in Race Relations

MIRROR, MIRROR: Truth be told, Alfre Woodard knew Badgley Mischka before she met Mark Badgley and James Mischka. Sizing herself up as “ample at the top, and not tall,” the Oscar-nominated actress said she started wearing the label years ago. “Whenever you are out and about for eight to 10 hours at events, you want to feel at your best,” she said before the lights went down at Tuesday morning’s runway show.
The film, stage and TV actress got to know the design duo through the equestrian circuit, where her daughter and Badgley compete. “My daughter is an equestrian, so I have watched Mark ride. I didn’t even go introduce myself. I was already wearing their clothes. I thought, ‘Oh my God, there he is with the horse,’” she said.
In regards to her own pursuits, Woodard is shooting the second season of the Netflix series “Luke Cage” and her latest movie “So B. It” premieres early next month. The independent film also features Talitha Bateman in the lead role. As for the role the arts play in helping with race relations, Woodard said, “Well, not just race. What art does, the creation of it, the exploration of it, the sharing and

Labor Relations in Education

Labor Relations in Education


Collective bargaining in the public schools of the nation has its legal roots in the industrial labor model fashioned in the 1930s out of labor strife between union organizers and private businesses. This industrial union labor model was transplanted almost wholesale into the public sector over fifty years ago when teachers, fire and police personnel were granted the legislative right to collectively bargain their wages, benefits, and terms and conditions of employment in most states. What impact has this industrial model had on public education and on the relationship between teachers and administrators? Labor Relations in Education explores unions and collective bargaining in the public schools of America. The history of the laws, the politics of the response to collective bargaining and unions, and the practices of bargaining and managing a contract are explored in this volume. Changes that may move labor relations into professional relations and away from the industrial labor union model and diminish the schism that exists between educators are discussed. A fully developed simulation is included to employ the practices and concepts discussed in the book.

Matter, Ether and Motion – The Factors and Relations of Physical Science

Matter, Ether and Motion – The Factors and Relations of Physical Science


In the past fifty years the advance in physical knowledge has not only been rapid, but it has been revolutionary. The fundamental principles of natural philosophy that were applied by Sir Isaac Newton and others to masses of visible magnitude have been applied to molecules; and it has thus been discovered that all kinds of phenomena are subject to the same mechanical laws. It was thought before that physics embraced several distinct provinces of knowledge which were not necessarily related to each other, such as mechanics, heat, & electricity. Such terms as imponderable matter, latent heat, electric fluid, forces of nature, and others in common use in text-books and elsewhere, served to maintain the distinctions; and even to-day some of these obsolete physical agencies are to be met in books and places where one would hope not to find them. As all physical phenomena are reducible to the principles of mechanics, atoms and molecules are subject to them as much as masses of visible magnitude; and it has become apparent that however different one phenomenon is from another, the factors of both are the same-matter, ether, and motion; so that all the so-called forces of nature, considered as objective things controlling phenomena, are seen to have no existence; that all phenomena are reducible to nothing more mysterious than a push or a pull. Some say that science is simply classified knowledge. To the author it is more than that, it is a consistent body of knowledge; and a true explanation of any phenomenon cannot be inconsistent with the best established body of knowledge we have. If physical factors are fundamental, then theorizers must square their theories to them. One may often hear the question asked, What is electricity? But a similar question as to the nature of heat or light or chemism is just as pertinent, although there chances now to be less popular interest in these than in the former; not, however, because they are in themselves better understood, or l
