One approach is to build on an already familiar web-authoring program instead of requiring users to adapt to an entirely different tool. One company taking this approach is Ephox, a provider of solutions for web content authoring. By Eileen Mullan - Posted Jan 28, As we enter , it's clear to any reputable scientist that our planet is in peril.
Individuals and institutions alike—have begun to look at ways to reduce our impact on the planet.
The publishing industry is no different, and there are a number of ways that it is working to minimize its negative impact. Green IT is all around.

These days, anyone so inclined could fill his or her days signing up for green IT initiatives. Now, companies in the software-as-a-service sector are leading a charge to show how SaaS is the ultimate secret weapon for reducing any client company's carbon footprint. For proponents of virtual events, a perfect storm has created an opportunity: Truth without love is coarse and even dangerous. Love without truth is the worst version of a bad greeting card—sappy and vacuous.
Their impact on our lives and environments is most effective when they are working dynamically as a pair; together, truth and love help create a world that is just and realistic, and at the same time caring and harmonious. People in every community need to trust one another, to have faith in one another. Milton has always stood for excellent discourse.

Today, some of the most powerful models for civil discourse are our own students. Sam has an impressive intellect and a discernible edge. Like many other Milton students, Sam learned to balance his irrepressible desire to impart the truth with a compassionate filter. Good humor has an edge, especially in high schools. Editorial staffs must balance the intense pressure to be outrageous—pushing past boundaries sometimes—and the need for appropriate care and empathy for the students, faculty and staff that surround them.
On a notable occasion, the Milton Measure printed a simple, highly inappropriate tagline about a senior faculty member.

Sam blew a gasket and engaged his peers about it on the spot. Having struggled intensely with himself, with his peers and with his conscience, Sam grew. Watching Sam grow, mature and ultimately express his profound gratitude for Milton was one of my proudest moments here. When Milton is at its best, Dare to Be True not only proclaims the truth, it is enriched by love for justice, for integrity, for ideals, and for our fellow man.
Bland shared these words with students and faculty at Convocation on September 7, Young athletes connected with social media are engulfed by an athletics culture where civility, respect and general sportsmanship are hard to find. Neither athletes nor coaches can ignore the prevailing tides. In this environment, how do coaches impress student-athletes with the value of fair conduct; respect for opponents, teammates and officials; winning and losing graciously? How do you make sure athletes practice the skills that are bound to help them succeed in life?
Varsity softball coach Amy Hickey agrees: Great athletes, and great coaches, weave those elements together. After tryouts, and before practices begin, coaches explicitly go over team rules and expectations—some passed along from the athletic director, others they develop based on their own experiences. Many of these points deal in concrete terms with sportsmanship and how players are expected to represent the program and their School. Milton coaches view their roles broadly.
Even when your players act out of frustration, you have to hold them accountable. We thank the bus drivers when they drop us off. We leave a locker room the way we found it. Sportsmanship extends across a whole season. Student leaders set the tone; captains and seniors influence the dynamic quite a bit.
A teammate telling a player he or she has stepped out of line resonates more clearly than the same advice coming from an adult. Most of the coaches agree that the level of sportsmanship has decreased over the years. Some credit bad habits picked up in youth sports programs; parents who overinvest time and money, skewing a fragile balance; precedents set by for-profit AAU programs and club teams.
Things go quickly from participation trophies for all to cutthroat competition vying for a few top spots. Every Saturday morning, before their afternoon home games, Lamar takes his basketball team to eat breakfast together in the dining hall. Of course I want them to be compassionate, but I also want them to be competitors.
For instance, the longstanding practice of electing the student speakers assures seniors that at their last Milton gathering, they will hear messages from classmates they chose. More recently, Class I students have been inviting accomplished Milton alumni to be commencement keynote speakers.

This year, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, Class of , talked with graduates in Straus Library, prior to the formal commencement ceremony. His responses wove together his own stories, memories of years on the south side of Chicago as well as his time at Milton. He shared life lessons with Milton students headed off with many aspirations. How do we show the sense of common cause, and reach for that sense of common destiny, which is going to be necessary for us to confront the big issues facing us as a country, as a globe?
I had this experience of having a foot in two worlds. The price of admis-. When I talked with my pals at home about Milton, their eyes glazed over. I felt forced to make a choice, but ultimately I realized that was a false choice. I realized I had to actually decide who I was, and then be that all the time.
My real friends would accept that, no matter what. One of the reasons it feels easy for me to move among different settings is that I know who I am. Milton had a lot to do with that. We talked about daring to be true and what that meant. Today we are losing the ability to have a public discourse about values. At Milton we talked about values—it was part of English class, science class, dinner table conversations. To me that was transcendent. That talk made me feel bigger and made the community feel bigger. Hundreds of thousands of little decisions accumulate to who you are inside.
Having the courage to make the decision and the stamina to stand up to those others voices is a big job. I realized that was the way we were beginning to govern ourselves—for the next election cycle or the next news cycle, not making the hard decisions right now that will make things better for you and your children.

I thought I had something to contribute around the idea of generational responsibility. Are we going to practice making compromises that we know are in our longterm best interest even though they are uncomfortable right now?
It has beautiful green lawns, and abject poverty right next to it. It has limitless opportunity and. There are people dealing with private crises and silent anxiety in all those worlds. You have that in your power—simple acts of grace. You have that power. I hope you remember that.
