me in the piazza

I'm a writer, publishing both as SJ Rozan and, with Carlos Dews, as Sam Cabot. (I'm Sam, he's Cabot.) Here you can find links to my almost-daily blog posts, including the Saturday haiku I've been doing for years. BUT the blog itself has moved to my website. If you go on over there you can subscribe and you'll never miss a post. (Miss a post! A scary thought!) Also, I'll be teaching a writing workshop in Italy this summer -- come join us!

Go, NYC Harbor School!

I don't sail or dive, but I love the river and the harbor, which must be why I get such a kick out of this story.



First Public High School Approved to Join the American Academy of Underwater Sciences

The American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS) is a consortium that oversees the standards and practices of underwater researchers. On Oct. 25, the Urban Assembly New York Harbor School was accepted as the first public high school member of the AAUS. The other 138 members are primarily major research universities, aquariums and consulting firms. A private boarding school in Hawaii is the only other high school member.

"On a practical level," wrote Joe Gessert, Harbor School's Dive Safety Officer and Dive Instructor in an email announcing the news, "this membership will help open new research opportunities and partnerships to our dive students (as well as possibilities for our marine science and robotics students), give them a strong addition to their college applications to major universities, give them a head start towards field work in the marine sciences, and hopefully bring in outside researchers for collaborative projects."
