Swedish University Sings for Science

On December 10, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel’s death, the Nobel prizes are officially awarded in Sweden each year. Though there will not be quite the usual celebrations this year, the recipients will still be honoured in different ways worldwide. So in the spirit of celebrating the contribution of science and research to society, Chalmers University of Technology, one of the leading scientific universities in Sweden, aims to shine a light on the years of hard work that lie behind crucial scientific breakthroughs, through a rather unusual way – by singing for science.

The way to scientific understanding is paved with many important and cumulative steps and contributions. Every year, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology publish over 4000 scientific articles outlining new, peer-reviewed findings in a wide array of areas – everything from sustainable energy technology, food science, medicines, climate modelling and new materials, to foundational research laying the groundwork for future applications.

“Research at Chalmers and other universities helps new knowledge get out into society and industry for the benefit of everyone, to help with better decision-making. With the help of new research, we can better understand our world, and guide the way forward to more sustainable ways of living,” says Stefan Bengtsson, President and CEO of Chalmers University of Technology.

Singing for science is perhaps not the most standard way for a university to communicate. But there is a long musical tradition in Swedish academia, and last year the Chalmers Choir celebrated its 150th birthday. The pandemic unfortunately put a halt to rehearsals and concerts for a time, but now, they can sing together again, and are proud to present a new song in four voices, to the tune of the 18th century Swedish musician Carl Michael Bellman’s popular song ‘Så lunkar vi så småningom’ (‘So we gradually amble’). 

The lyrics are in Swedish, but an approximate English translation is provided in the video. Watch here.

“We are very happy to contribute and celebrate science in this way. We hope our message of faith in science can spread far and wide with the help of the song,” says Maria Cervin-Ellqvist, Vice-President of the Chalmers Choir and a doctoral student at the Department of Communication and Learning in Science where she researches, appropriately enough, research communication.

New watches launched live this year from WatchTime New York included the new Swizz Beatz x De Bethune Dream Watch 5 Tourbillon “Season 1,” the new A. Lange & Söhne anniversary model, and more

WatchTime New York wrapped this Sunday following three days of new wristwatch presentations, talks, and warm reunions as the global watch community gathered for the first live, in-person WatchTime New York event since 2019. The triumphant comeback also marked a notable expansion for the major event, widely regarded as America’s most important public watch event dedicated to collectors, this year offering a packed three-day lineup, held at Gotham Hall from Friday, October 22 to Sunday, October 24, 2021. The event, produced by WatchTime and presented in partnership with sponsors Tourneau | Bucherer and BMW, also marked one of the first large-scale luxury events in New York City to successfully reconvene post-quarantine.

WatchTime New York kicked off Friday, October 22 with a high-energy VIP cocktail event. Eager guests gathered in the Seiko lounge before surging into the show floor under Gotham Hall’s famed rotunda. Well-heeled private collectors and watch enthusiasts got the first chance to mingle with brand executives and influencers in attendance while marveling at the latest offerings from the 28 registered brand exhibitors, including Chopar, Breguet, Blancpain, Seiko, Norqain, Grand Seiko, MB&F, and more.

This year’s longer three-day event format doubled the popular slate of WatchTime New York panels on Saturday and Sunday, October 23 and 24, featuring leading experts and figures from the watch world. This year’s panels, moderated by Sara Orlando, WatchTime Publisher, WatchTime Editor-in-Chief Roger Ruegger, and renowned collector and consultant Jeff Kingston, explored hot topics in the watch world today, from how the watch landscape has changed since 2019 in the wake of global disruption to the state of women’s watch offerings in today’s marketplace and engaging new brand collaborations. The final panel of the weekend covered the ongoing surge in demand and shortage of stainless-steel sport-luxury watches, with featured celebrity panelist and watch lover Aldis Hodge of “One Night in Miami” and “City on a Hill.”

WatchTime New York once again served as a major stage for new product launches. On Saturday, October. 23, recording artist and producer Swizz Beatz arrived to personally launch his new collaboration with De Bethune: the new Dream Watch 5. The new A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Honeygold “Lumen” was announced live from the show floor on Sunday, October 24, coinciding with the brand’s anniversary.

First-time exhibitors this year included Chopard, Massena LAB, Norqain, and others.

Sara Orlando, WatchTime Magazine Publisher: “The success of our show this year underlines the fact that the luxury and watch industries are booming right now, and collectors are eager for the kind of face-to-face, hands-on interactions that we have always facilitated at WatchTime New York.” Orlando moderated a thought-provoking all-female panel dedicated to women and watches on Saturday, October 23.

WatchTime Editor-in-Chief Roger Ruegger: “We are proud to have brought back WatchTime New York live and in-person, not just safely, but on a bigger scale than ever before: with an extended schedule, more engaging panels, and welcoming even more exciting new brands this year.

Pandemic Mental Health with Dr. Friedberg

On Saturday, September 25, Dr. Ahron Friedberg, distinguished Manhattan and Sag Harbor psychiatrist and resident, held a reading and discussion of his book, Through a Screen Darkly: Psychoanalytic Reflections During the Pandemic, in the home of renowned fellow psychiatrist and Hamptons resident, Dr. Mirjana Blokar. Attendees and discussion participants included prestigious neuroscientist, Dr. Heather Berlin, among numerous Mount Sinai colleagues and friends.

Dr. Friedberg explains, “The book shows that, of necessity, people can learn to adapt, even in the most difficult circumstances. Even though we can only see “darkly” we can call on resources we do have, in addition to those we can acquire to retain our sense of dignity and purpose. Through a Screen Darkly is a time capsule of how we struggled – and are continuing to navigate – a disease we do not fully understand.”

The book addresses the pandemic in phases, including I) Pandemic, II) Venturing Out, III) The New Normal, and IV) Life Simplified. The essays provide perspective on several subjects relating to mental health, including parenting, elder care, work life (losing jobs, finding jobs, choosing new work, commuting), loneliness, children, and dating. Through a Screen Darkly offers practical examples of how patients coped with these conditions and (in many cases) found the resilience to get past them.

“The ultimate goal is to bolster your resilience,” states Dr. Friedberg. “In my experience counseling patients through the pandemic, I found that they had greater capacity for resilience than they realized. Deploying this resilience was their pathway to successfully managing their mental health.”

In addition to Through a Screen Darkly, Dr. Friedberg has also written Flashing Seven: Seven Essential Skills for Living and Leading, co-authored with Dr. Jack Hischowitz, Clinical Professor at Mount Sinai, Between Us, A Father and Son Speak, co-authored with his father, Dr. Eugene Friedberg, and Psychotherapy and Personal Change; Two Minds in a Mirror, also written with Dr. Sandra Sherman.
Through a Screen Darkly is available for purchase at amazon.com.

The Town Hall × The Boys

The Town Hall has announced a special evening with brothers Ron Howard and Clint Howard as they reflect on their new book The Boys. The live evening, moderated by Malcolm Gladwell will take place on October 12 at 7PM at The Town Hall  the same day The Boys is released.

What was it like to grow up on TV? is not a question most of us know the answer to, but Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Howard and fan-favorite actor Clint Howard do. The brothers rose to fame on popular shows of the 1960s and 70s like Happy Days, The Andy Griffith Show, and Gentle Ben. At The Town Hall, they chat about their new dual memoir The Boys, in which they reflect on the importance of family and share memories of their extraordinary childhood spent on sound stages, hanging out with Hollywood legends like Andy Griffith, and working with trained bears. Theyߣll also dig deeper, examining the industry with the perspective of life experience behind them.

Tickets prices, which include a copy of The Boys are $47-$52 and are available at 

The evening is presented in partnership with Strand Bookstore and is also providing copies of The Boys.

After the last year and a half of working on this book, I am really looking forward to sitting with Clint and Malcolm at Town Hall to dive into our life experiences, as well as share all that we have learned throughout this process, said Ron Howard.

Clint Howard agreed. Writing a memoir with my brother has been an awesome experience and kicking off our book tour in New York City is a dream come true.

We are excited to welcome Ron and Clint Howard to The Town Hall to discuss their book The Boys, said Artistic Director Melay Araya. This is an exciting opportunity for audiences to get a peek behind the scenes of Hollywood from two these two prolific men and to see that while their family’s circumstances may have been different, they have gone through some of the same struggles and triumphs that many families do. Our goal at The Town Hall is to welcome important voices commenting on the American experience, and we know this evening will be fun and enlightening.

With the perspective of time and success Ron as a filmmaker, producer, and Hollywood A-lister, Clint as a busy character actor the Howard brothers delve deep into an upbringing that seemed normal to them yet was anything but. Their Midwestern parents, Rance and Jean, moved to California to pursue their own showbiz dreams. But it was their young sons who found steady employment as actors. Rance put aside his ego and ambition to become Ron and Clint’s teacher, sage, and moral compass. Jean became their loving protector sometimes over-protector from the snares and traps of Hollywood.

By turns confessional, nostalgic, heartwarming, and harrowing, The Boys is a dual narrative that lifts the lid on the Howard brothers’ closely held lives. It’s the journey of a tight four-person family unit that held fast in an unforgiving business and of two brothers who survived child-actor syndrome to become fulfilled adults.

“We believe that love has the power to unify us. By reinforcing solidarity and acceptance within our community and with our allies, we can truly begin to create more inclusive spaces that are representative of our amazing LGBTQ community. ” said Rich Walczak, Executive Director, Miami Beach Pride. “The foundation on which this week is built is the concept of self-acceptance and authenticity and why we want everyone to feel like they belong at our celebration this year.”

Miami Beach Pride, working in tandem with local leaders, announced its new COVID-19 protocols and prevention measures (available online soon) for a safe and exciting festival.

Free masks will also be available on-site.
