In an effort to bring awareness to domestic violence, all New Yorkers are being asked to wear purple Oct. 20 as part of National Domestic Awareness Month. The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office will be joining with other government agencies and nonprofit groups Oct. 20 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the H. Lee Dennison Building in Hauppauge for the 26th annual Commemoration Day to honor those who have been affected by domestic violence. There will be information about victims’ services, as well as speakers who will discuss their personal stories. The public is encouraged to share their Commemoration Day photos and stories using the hashtag #TurnSuffolkPurple. Sheriff Vincent DeMarco wants to bring awareness to the VINE and SAVIN-NY programs, which help protect victims of domestic violence. The Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification, or SAVIN-NY, program permits victims to register to be notified when a Family Court Order of Protection has been served on their abuser. The Victim Information and Notification Everyday system, or VINE, allows victims to register by phone or online to be notified when an offender is released from jail. VINE is available nationwide and may also be accessed through a downloadable app. Both services are offered completely free of charge and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More information and links to

the systems are available on the Sheriff’s Office website at www.SuffolkSheriff.com. “Victims of domestic violence and other crimes often live in fear,” DeMarco said. “The VINE and SAVIN-NY applications can provide some peace of mind to victims and family members and we need to spread the word about these important services. I am also encouraging residents to do their part to help reduce the number of people who are unsafe in their homes and relationships. If you suspect child or adult abuse, take action so that a professional can look into the situation. It never hurts to make a confidential call, and that one simple act could help save a life.” •Child Abuse Hotline Number: 1-800-342-3720 •Adult Abuse Hotline Number: 1-844-697-3505

peter Magistrale speaks in support of the child Victims act at a rally in st. James.

Community rallies to improve NYS child sex abuse laws By Ted Ryan and VicToRia espinoza Residents of the North Shore gathered at Veterans Memorial Park in St. James Oct. 15, to raise awareness of sexual abuse of children in New York state. Democratic candidate for the state Senate race in the 2nd District, Peter Magistrale, hosted the rally. He is advocating for a change to the current statute of limitations that restricts when a child rape victim can come forward with a civil or criminal case against their abuser. In New York, once victims turn 23 they can no longer make a case for child abuse against the predator in question. According to research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. In addition, the National Center for Victims of Crime said 14 percent of sexual offenders commit another sexual offense after five years, and 24 percent after 15 years. The National Sex Offender Public Website stated children usually delay telling someone if they have been sexually abused because they are either afraid of a negative reaction from their parents or of being harmed by the abuser. The website indicated kids often “delay disclosure until adulthood.” Magistrale said he thinks the restriction is unjust and wants to turn the tide on child abusers by removing the statute of limitations through the Child Victims Act. The bill would eliminate both criminal and civil statutes of limitation for child sexual abuse, and provide a one-time, one-year window in the statute of limitations to enable victims whose claim was time-barred by the current arbitrary limitations to revive their claim. A similar version of this bill failed to make it past the state Senate floor during the legislative session this past June. “A kid takes on average 21 years to come forward [to admit they were abused],” Magistrale said at the rally. “The average age

that a child is raped is 8 or 9. By the time they build the courage and get over their psychological scars, time is up. We have to pass the Child Victims Act to do two things: Lift the statute of limitations completely, and then give a one-year look back window for people who were abused and unable to come forward in the past to point out who did it to them so we get them [the predators] off the street as well.” Several victims of child abuse spoke at the rally, as well as members of anti-child abuse organizations. They told their stories of the abuse and their subsequent frustration with the restrictive statute. Among the speakers was Melanie Blow, COO of the Stop Abuse Campaign. “It’s simply ridiculous it’s taken us 10 years to pass the most significant bill to prevent child abuse,” Blow said. “But we’ve got survivors coming together right now to get the word out, to tell parents that this is an issue, and this piece of legislation will help.” John De Vito, Democratic candidate for the state Senate’s 3rd district, also spoke at the rally. “So many people here who are victims of sexual violence might never have a day in court to seek justice,” De Vito said. “But if we pass the Child Victims Act, our children will be awarded that opportunity going forward.” During an interview at TBR News Media’s office in East Setauket, state Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan (R-East Northport) said he agreed with Magistrale, who he is running against for re-election in the 2nd District, that this is an important issue but he does not support the legislation. “There are significant protections in the law right now,” he said. “This is a oneyear opener that could bring cases going back 40, 50, 60 years. We have statute of limitations for very cogent reasons and no matter how emotional a subject may be, witness availability, evidence, all those things have a salutary effect in terms of what happens.”

Strike may be coming for nurses at St. Catherine of Siena, St. Charles By Alex Petroski alex@tbrnewspapers.com Registered nurses at St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center in Smithtown and St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson have been working without a contract since March 2015, but they may be nearing a tipping point. Nurses from both hospitals voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike this week, according to a statement dated Oct. 17 from the New York State Nurses Association, a union that represents about 40,000 registered nurses in the state. “We are very frustrated with management,” Tracy Kosciuk, a St. Charles nurse in the maternal child unit who has been with the hospital for nearly three decades, said in a statement. Kosciuk is also the president of the union’s executive committee for St. Charles. “We feel a total lack of respect. Our community appreciates our dedication and management should too.” Spokespersons from both hospitals responded to the union’s actions in emailed statements. “We are working diligently to resolve all issues and have made great progress toward that goal,” separate statements from St. Charles executive director for public and external affairs, Marilyn Fabbricante, and St. Catherine’s executive vice president and chief administrative officer, Paul Rowland, each said. “We look forward to a mutually satisfactory collective bargaining agreement which rewards our nurses and meets the needs of our hospitals.” Fabbricante added that St. Charles has

Now a strike looms. not yet been informed by the union of plans to go on strike. Carl Ginsburg, a spokesman for the union, said they have strike authorizations from members at both hospitals, though negotiations are ongoing and no dates have been determined for the strikes. Unions are required to give health care institutions at least 10 days notice prior to a strike, according to the National Labor Relations Board — and Ginsburg said that had not yet occurred. According to the release from the union, its members are frustrated by inadequate staffing and are seeking better health benefits and a pay increase in their next contract.

In 1995, performance of nurses and other health care professionals became subject to ratings based on patient surveys conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, according to its website. “All of these issues affect retention and recruitment,” Tammy Miller, a nurse at St. Catherine of Siena, said in a statement. “Keeping and attracting experienced nurses are essential to quality care.” Dawn Bailey, a registered nurse and labor bargaining unit executive committee member of the NYS Nurses Association, said during a picket outside the Smithtown medical

center in April that working a shift without adequate staff can be dangerous not only for patients, but for nurses as well, on top of the potential damage it can do to ratings. “You can’t have two people lifting a patient all the time because there’s not that other person available,” Bailey said. “When people are going out with back injuries, then [members of hospital administration] wonder why.” Kosciuk expressed a similar sentiment during a picket in April. “Unfortunately the mentality … nowadays in the industry is [that] all hospitals are short staffed,” she said. “That’s not acceptable to have that mind-set.” Victoria Espinoza contributed to this story.

Suffolk County bans new deadly opioid drug By ViCtoriA esPiNozA Victoria@tbrnewspapers.com A victory was gained in the fight against opioid abuse this month, as the Suffolk County Legislature unanimously approved a new bill that prohibits the sale and possession of U-47700, a highly addictive synthetic opioid drug. The pink pill contains fentanyl, another addictive and dangerous opioid, and is resistant to treatment with Narcan, a drug used to revive people who have overdosed. Suffolk County Legislator Steve Stern (D-Dix Hills) created the bill, which passed Oct. 5. “We must do everything in our power to protect our young people from synthetic opioids like U-47700 that we know lead to addiction, serious health effects, graduation to heroin and potential death,” Stern said in a statement. Stern’s office said U-47700 was originally developed by the pharmaceutical industry as an alternative to morphine but was never marketed when it was determined to be more than eight times as potent as mor-

phine. The drug is manufactured overseas, mainly in China and is sold at a low cost on the internet, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. It can be smoked, snorted or orally ingested and can cause respiratory depression, coma, permanent brain damage and death. The DEA temporarily listed the drug on Schedule I of the federal Controlled Substances Act in September because of the imminent hazard it presents to public safety. Schedule I drugs have a high potential for abuse, are not currently accepted for medical use in the U.S. and are deemed unsafe even under medical supervision. Other drugs in the Schedule I list include heroin, LSD and ecstasy. Many states, including Georgia, Ohio and Wyoming, have banned the drug. The DEA confirmed at least 15 fatalities from the use of U-47700, and according to news sources, at least 50 deaths nationwide can be linked to the drug. According to the bill, any person who knowingly violates the law will be guilty of an unclassified misdemeanor punishable

U-47700, a new opioid drug, has reportedly led to more than 50 overdose deaths across the country and is resistant to Narcan treatment.

The law goes into effect immediately after the Office of the Secretary of State files it. The legislation to prohibit its sale was supported by the entire legislature, as well

as Health Commissioner James Tomarken and Police Commissioner Tim Sini. “I thank my colleagues on the Legislature for joining me in taking meaningful action to protect the health and safety of our communities,” Stern said.

Dogwood students tend to sick stuffed animals Kindergartners at Dogwood Elementary School brought in their stuffed animals to school for a checkup on Oct. 11 as part of an interactive workshop presented by Stony Brook University Hospital. In an effort to dispel some of the fear and apprehension associated with doctors

and hospitals, the students learned to perform proper medical treatments on a “sick” stuffed animal or doll they had brought in from home. After visiting the waiting room, the students worked to diagnose their stuffed companions; first checking their weight

and temperature before applying bandages and dispensing proper medicines based on their conditions. The students each performed different job functions, such as doctor, nurse, receptionist or pharmacist throughout the workshop.

Erin Zazzera, pediatric trauma coordinator at Stony Brook University Hospital, and Stony Brook University Hospital nursing students spoke to the classes about keeping safe in the car, wearing seatbelts and using booster seats and wearing a helmet for sporting activities.

Tips for a safe Halloween In preparation for Halloween, Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro (R) is offering parents some tips, courtesy of the American Academy of Pediatrics, to help ensure children enjoy the holiday safely.

ON THE TRICK-OR-TREAT TRAIL

• A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds. • Obtain flashlights with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts. • If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home. • Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat. • Because pedestrian injuries are the most

common injuries to children on Halloween, remind trick-or-treaters: • Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going. • Remember reflective tape for costumes and trick-or-treat bags. • Carry a cell phone for quick communication. • Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk. • If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic. • Never cut across yards or use alleys. • Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks. Never cross between parked cars or out of driveways. • Don’t assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing trick-or-treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn’t mean others will. • Law enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity.

• Consider adding reflective tape or striping to costumes and trick-or-treat bags for greater visibility. • Because masks can limit or block eyesight, consider nontoxic makeup and decorative hats as safer alternatives. •When shopping for costumes, wigs and accessories, look for and purchase those with a label clearly indicating they are flame-resistant. • If a sword, cane or stick is a part of your child’s costume, make sure it it’s not sharp or long.

Newfield continues to be Achilles heel for West Bulls Game 1

Newfield 2 Smithtown West 1

By Desirée Keegan Desiree@tBrnewspapers.com

In the second matchup between the two teams Oct. 14, sophomore midfielder and forward Nicholas Gomez scored his second of two goals off a long throw-in by senior forward Mike DiDominico just over six minutes into the first overtime to put Newfield (11-1-1 in league play) in the lead. Smithtown West senior forward Brandon Erny tied the score at 1-1 10 minutes into the second half, and the two teams continued to battle aggressively until the final minutes. Smithtown West junior midfielder and forward Andrew McDonnell finished with two goals and an assist in the win over West Islip. Erny added a goal and junior midfielder Robert Pirrera added the other. The Wolverines now lead the conference by one point over Smithtown

Prior to outscoring West Islip 4-1 Oct. 17, the Smithtown West boys’ soccer team was booted from the top spot in League III by new leader Newfield.

SportS East Bulls edge Ward Melville, sweep Riverhead By Bill landon Smithtown East continues to dominate the volleyball court. The girls’ team improved to 10-1 overall and 8-0 in League III to remain atop the leaderboard, with a three-set win over Riverhead Oct. 17, 25-11, 2511 and 25-10, and GaME 1 five-set win over nonleague opponent Ward Melville, 26-14, 25-19, 25-18, 25-15 and 26-24 Oct. 18. GaME 2 Smithtown East head coach George Alamia did not start several of his starters during the matchup against Riverhead in an effort to keep the score close and enhance his younger players, but it didn’t matter. He also saved them to go up against a tough opponent in League I’s No. 1-ranked Ward Melville. “They’re great team leaders — they make everyone around them better and as you can see, we don’t have a huge drop off when they don’t play,” Alamia said after the win over Riverhead. “Today we had good ball control against [Riverhead] and our back-up setter Marissa Oliveri has great hands and she moved the ball around really well today.” The Bulls started out slow in the first set against Riverhead, but retook the lead 8-7 and showed their dominance, rattling off point after point to put the set away, stringing together 11 unanswered points along the way. Sophomore right side hitter Grace Faulhaber said her team’s strength was its ability to rally back even after falling behind. “I loved the way, even when we lost the point, we found a way to get it back,” she said. “We dig deep, we’ll get that pass and then [we can] get that hit.” The second set was much like the first, and Alamia continued to go deeper into his bench. “As a team, we all work together — we never get down on each other and we always find a way to push through points to stay in the game,” junior outside hitter Alex Colon said. “We motivate each other and it’s [how we] bond together. That’s the most important part of the game.”

Clockwise from above, Marissa oliveri serves; Kate Chong leap up for a block; Paige Truncale reaches for the kill shot; and Jaclyn Mara connects with the ball. Senior outside hitter Haley Anderson, an All-State and All-Long Island player the last two years, along with senior libero Jill Pesce, junior outside hitter Steph Berdon and junior

setter Brooke Berroyer all watched the action from the sidelines. Alamia said the quartet provides the ingredients that are enabling his team to compete for a 10th consecutive League III title, adding that the players bring the consistency and a championship attitude every day to practice. With the balance of the roster seeing action in the third set though, you wouldn’t know the power foursome wasn’t in the mix. Alamia said he will continue to focus on strengthening his secondary going down the stretch in preparation for the postseason. “When we go around and Haley’s in the

back row, we need to grow in some areas offensively,” the head coach said. “We’ve made progress — we’ve gotten better — and I think we’ll be at our strongest come playoff time.” Senior middle Kate Chong said her team’s defense continues to make the difference. “We picked up a lot of balls — even the ones that were close,” Chong said. “We just push ourselves so hard, and we’ve been playing together since sixth grade, so we have a strong bond.” Anderson had a commanding 29 kills, 22 digs and six blocks in the win over Ward Melville. Senior right side hitter Paige Truncale finished with eight kills and five blocks.

Letters to the editor

Two reasons to vote for Donald Trump

Multi-age students share a learning experience.

File photo

Is it time to rethink public education? With last month’s release of a new draft of learning standards for Common Core in New York, the state Education Department may be trying to put lipstick on a pig. The standards were updated to give students more time to understand curriculum and make student expectations and lesson plans clearer to parents. But some educators and superintendents across Long Island said these changes are merely superficial and will have no real impact on improving the heavily criticized learning system. Public comment on the draft standards is being collected on the SED website (nysed.gov/aimhighny) through Nov. 4. It will be interesting to see how parents and teachers continue to respond. In a democracy, when policies like Common Core are met with overwhelming disdain even across party lines, change should not be so difficult. Maybe it’s time we all gave a little more thought to what we’re really trying to accomplish via schooling. What, exactly, should be taught in the 21st century? And how can it best be delivered to our future leaders? It’s probably not a bad idea to have some baseline of what everyone needs to learn — and, some mechanism for assessment — but not at the expense of eliminating music and art that contribute to creating well-rounded individuals. And certainly, not at the cost of preventing teachers from using their own creativity and enthusiasm to inspire a thirst for lifelong learning in students. We hope residents across Long Island will continue to voice their concerns and participate in this survey if they feel Common Core is still not doing their children justice. As Bob Dylan wrote, long ago, “The times, they are a-changing.” It’s as true today as it was back then — only time is changing faster. Let’s make sure our educational system has the capacity to change with the times, and change for the better.

Why would anyone vote for Donald Trump? For two good reasons: He is not Hillary Clinton, and he has a chance to win. The problem with Hillary is that she is a hard-core cardcarrying socialist, and her goal is to complete the stated mission of the current president, which is to fundamentally transform America, with reckless disregard for our Constitution. She has stated that she will defend and extend President Obama’s executive actions with regard to illegal immigrants, providing them with illegal executive amnesty. The United States Congress has acted on “comprehensive immigration reform” and has rejected it. Hillary and Obama have chosen to ignore the constitutionally mandated process by which laws in this country are established and enforced. She has promised to deliver, among other things, immediate access to Obamacare and welfare benefits, a clear path to full citizenship and voting rights to aliens in our country illegally at the present time. As if that were not enough, she also plans to admit a minimum of 105,000 refugees annually from the Muslim world. Like all good socialists, Hillary is dedicated to the proposition of redistribution of wealth, through exorbitant tax burdens on those who have earned it, to be doled out to various constituent groups of her party. She favors putting coal companies and

their employees out of business. When challenged on her claim that she was a friend of the West Virginia coal miners, she replied, “I don’t know how to explain it other than what I said was totally out of context from what I meant, because I’ve been talking about helping coal country for a very long time. And it was a misstatement, because what I was saying is that the way things are going now, we will continue to lose jobs.” During her tenure as secretary of state, her appalling ineptitude showed

that she is unfit for any position of authority and responsibility, certainly including the president of the United States. Her actions regarding Benghazi caused the deaths of four American diplomats, and she then lied to the American people about the cause of it. She described Syrian dictator Assad as a “reformer.” She set up a private email server to allow her to combine classified government business with her criminal Clinton Foundation activities, and was saved from prosecution only though political interference with the FBI, thereby demonstrating that she is correct in her belief that she is truly above the law. Donald Trump has indeed made some regrettable remarks, which can reasonably be construed as unsubstantiated braggadocio from a billionaire playboy entertainer. However, he does show the insight to realize that we, as a nation, are heading in the wrong direction, particularly with regard to our national sovereignty, constitutional government, energy policy, health care reform and American exceptionalism, and I believe that he will do his best to make America great again. Hillary, who was accurately characterized by William Safire as a “congenital liar,” will do her best to make America socialist.

George Altemose Setauket

Let’s change the tenor of our discourse Driving home from work yesterday, I wish I could say I was stunned to hear on the radio that a group of Trump supporters were calling for repealing the 19th Amendment (giving women the right to vote). What have we come to? What a disgrace. But then, once home, I read the Village Times Herald and found a balm in the well-reasoned, cogent letter of Susan Blake (Letters, Oct. 13).

As a parent myself, and as an adjunct professor at a local college, I am very concerned with the effect of this election cycle (and the fallout from it) on the hearts and minds of our young people. The vitriol, the isolationism, misogyny, xenophobia, racism — the sheer meanness is just not to be believed. Please, all people of goodwill, let’s at least change the tenor of the discourse between ourselves. I

would also like to suggest that when one hears outlandish accusations, if they don’t have time to try to investigate on their own by reading from the sources, they take the accusations to Snopes or Politifacts fact-checker websites. By the way, you can check Snopes right now to see that the call to repeal the 19th Amendment went nowhere fast.

opinion Picking races that matter the most

O

n your mark, get set ... Wait! I know we’ve never seen an Olympic sprinter or swimmer take off his goggles, stand up from the starter’s block, scratch his chin, shrug his shoulders and walk away. After all, these athletes have spent years preparing for races that sometimes last less time than it takes us to order lunch. Like it or not, most of us are in races of all kinds. Some of them are positive and can even be necessary, while others may not be as producBy Daniel Dunaief tive. We race against the bully in the playground to prove that we can cross the lawn faster than he can, we race against the car at the other end of the parking lot so we can get the closest spot — and we

D. None of the above

race to our seats in a movie theater so we don’t miss the previews. Some of these races clearly offer us an incentive to improve our lives, the lives of those around us or just to make us feel better. Beating the fastest kid on the block may not be something we put on our resumé, but it can give us confidence in other arenas. Races can be inspirational. Watch any Olympic Games and every media outlet is in search of an incredible story. Witness Wilma Rudolph. She had polio when she was 4, which caused her to have infantile paralysis. Through her recovery, she wore a brace on her leg until she was 9. She went on to become an Olympic track star in 1956 and 1960. Races can also encourage people to climb out of bed each morning, recognizing the urgency to do important work. Scientists, for example, frequently describe the race to cure cancer and to provide relief from other diseases that destroy our friends and relatives quickly, or slowly take them away from us. The scientific researchers know, without looking at a clock, that people

are suffering day and night with limited treatment, which also motivates them to work late at night or through weekends. Rescue workers, including the police, firefighters and the Coast Guard, race into storms or treacherous conditions to help people. Seconds can mean the difference between life and death. With everyone racing to something every day, it’s easy to see how some of those races, particularly the ones with little at stake, seem more like a battle of wills than a race. Do I need to race to the shortest line in the supermarket before that other person, with the same intent look in his eyes? What happens if I lose that race? Am I stuck in this other line for an extra 20 seconds or, gasp, even a minute or more? When we’re driving, we recognize that an ambulance racing past requires us to get out of the way. That’s not only the law, but it’s also the way we help our society function. When confronted with someone in a spectacular hurry, it’s possible and even likely that the person may be racing against or toward something we can’t see or understand.

High college costs heading for a fall

A

friend of mine, who is about my age and grew up on Long Island, was somewhat timid about going into the Big Apple on her own because she didn’t feel she knew how to get around, but she now is empowered by her car service. She is a member of the customer base of Uber or Lyft or Via — one of those and others that she can summon with her cellphone to take her on her errands around the city. The By Leah S. Dunaief service comes within two or three minutes, and she gets in and gets out, sometimes sharing the ride with another passenger, without having to so much as reach for her wallet. The fee and tip are automatically charged to her credit card and the price is significantly cheaper than an ordinary taxi. It is as if she had a chauffeured limo at her beck and call. As a result

Between you and me

she uses the service more often. When a store charges prices that are generally considered too high by shoppers, the store invites competition to come into the neighborhood. The same rule of economics applies to manufacturers and to industries. Sometimes that competition takes the more profound form of disruption by competitors who are aided by advances in technology, like the cellphone. In the instance of my friend and many like her, the car services have severely disrupted the taxi industry, dropping the NYC medallion price considerably. Another vulnerable industry is higher education. As the cost of a college education has gone up over the last 50 years by about twice the rate of inflation, the ability to secure a bachelor’s degree has moved beyond the reach of the average household. The result has been an untenable explosion of student — and parent — educational debt. This trend has also exacerbated the widening gulf between the haves and have-nots. Those without a four-year degree earn less over the course of their lives. While there are good public universities and community colleges, like

Stony Brook University and Suffolk County Community College, that are more reasonably priced and often allow the student to live at home and avoid room and board fees, there is another, growing option for students. Some colleges, including those with more well-known names, are offering bachelor’s degrees online. Although this may have struck many as snake oil in the past, today an online degree has become a viable option thanks to enormous technological gains — with more to come. Professors can stand in front of a class of students numbering from a handful to several hundred on campus. But thanks to webinars and other advances on the web, their student listeners may number in the thousands. Ah, you say, but they miss the live interaction of a classroom setting. Wrong. The students can now hear each other, as well as the professor, speak to each other and even see each other. There is more interaction over the Internet, in fact, than there is typically in large lecture classes. Shortly the speed of the Internet will reach unimaginable numbers to accommodate the instant transmission of incredible

And then there are the times when we are racing out to do something that may not, on second thought, be important or even all that helpful. Yes, movement might be positive and, yes, we might benefit from cutting down the time to accomplish something, but might we have found a shorter route or even a different path without all that running around? If we see our lives as a series of races, maybe we can pick the ones we truly want to run, while also recognizing that we can define a successful race for ourselves. Many years ago, I attended a press conference before the New York City Marathon. One of the reporters asked a Kenyan athlete, who was likely to finish in the top 10, about winning. The runner, whose pace per mile for more than 26 miles is faster than most people can sprint for a single mile, took his time to answer. “To finish the race is to win the race,” he said grinning, taking much more time between words than he would between strides the next day.

amounts of information. Professors attest to the high quality of response from the online students handing in assignments. There is even technology for locking down computers during tests to prevent cheating. Online education has already disrupted traditional education, and not just for special one-off events that are typically used by businesses and special-interest groups but for longterm degrees. Just Google “online degree programs USA,” and you will find 10 pages of names for starters. These include 2016 Top Online Colleges & Degrees, The 50 Best Online Colleges for 2016, List of Accredited Online Colleges & Universities, U.S. News & World Report 2016 Best Online Programs, Boston University online programs and so forth. Habits change more quickly today than at any other time in history. Just ask me how people get the top of the news each day: It’s not so much from newspapers or radio, or from network television or even cable TV — we get up in the morning and eyeball our mobile phones. Pay attention, college administrators and trustees, serious disruption is near.
