For the past four years, the Broome Educators of Children Association (BECA) has partnered up with the Family Enrichment Network (FEN) and their “Adopt-a-Family” initiative. This year, BECA has chosen another large family to sponsor and is looking forward to filling their holiday wants and needs. BECA pledges a large gift each year through their hard work and fundraising items like bikes, comforter sets or special wants for each child.
The BECA officers have created a beautiful display in our education classroom in T-204. Thanks to the kindness of our gracious students and staff of the Teacher Education/Early Childhood department and departments and people throughout SUNY Broome, we are able to make this family’s holiday shine brighter.
Please feel free to come in and take the special “tags” for this year’s family of five (four boys, ages: 13, 11, 2 and 3 months and a girl who is age 8 and/or their caregivers) and support this amazing annual tradition of giving.
If you would like to stop by TH 204 and take a tag, they will be ready by this week’s Common Hour workshop (Nov. 14) or you can reach out to the BECA Advisor, Christine Webb, at ext. 5160 or email@example.com. Thank you for your consideration, kindness and community spirit of giving!
Any gifts need to be returned to T204 by Dec. 5 for delivery to the family!

Join us from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Nov. 14 in Wales 203B for a discussion with media critic Jeff Cohen via Skype on “The Mainstream News Media and Political Theater.” The talk will cover everything from the Trump impeachment inquiry to the media’s framing of the victory over ISIS to the results of the general election. The event will be moderated by Communications Instructor Nick Bongiorno.
Cohen is a journalist, media critic, professor, and the founder of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), a media watchdog group in the U.S. He is a retired associate professor of journalism at Ithaca College, where he was an endowed chair and founding director of the Park Center for Independent Media. He was formerly a lawyer for the ACLU and authored or coauthored five books that criticize media bias, mainly written with 2012 California Congressional District 2 candidate Norman Solomon, who missed the “top two” runoff by only 174 votes. Between 1997 and 2002, Cohen was a regular commentator for Fox News Channel’s Fox News Watch, for MSNBC and CNN. He appeared in Outfoxed, a documentary critical of Fox News, and other documentaries.
Join Engineering Science Professor Robert Lofthouse at 11 a.m. Nov. 14 in Titchener Hall Room 102 as he discusses the challenges we face in implementing sustainable practices to ensure we, and our environment, have a future.
