By her own admission, Ann E. Shinnar is a tough professor. She even sees it as a “badge of honor,” because in her mind, that means her students are well prepared for a life in science and “understanding how they can take observation and make conclusions.” As a Lander College for Men associate professor of chemistry and deputy chair of the chemistry department, Dr. Shinnar’s main goal is to show those in her lab “what kind of mastery they need to accomplish” to find order amid the universe’s randomness, in the hopes of their doing groundbreaking work. That’s why Dr. Shinnar takes such pride and responsibility in her job. “The mark of a teacher is someone who not only knows the material, but can explain it in detail and convey the important and beauty and excitement of that particular discipline.”

Smoke and cheers were in the air on Sunday as Lander students celebrated Lag B\'Omer with gourmet barbecue, courtesy of master chef Tzvi Norowitz (the secret is in the sauce) and ‘shiur’ basketball tournaments. Rabbi Sacks, Rabbi Shmulewitz and Rabbi Tannenbaum stood on the sidelines cheering on their ‘shiur’ as their students competed against one another, and kollel, on the basketball court. Rabbi Mirsky joined his students on the court to fight for the title. In the end, only Rabbi Sacks’ shiur and the Rabbis Mirsky & Berzon shiur combo were left standing. Rabbi Mirsky’s and Rabbi Berzon’s shiurim emerged victorious. Wives and kids came out to cheer and eat. God arranged for the gorgeous day.
