    summary:
    Since I was an undergrad at Tufts, I've photographed the Boston Marathon from the perspective of the Tufts Marathon Team, coached by the irreplaceable Don Megerle. Originally as a student journalist, and then for Tufts as a client, this year's marathon, delayed due the pandemic, happening in October, brought back a familiarity. And besides seeing the pictures on @tuftsuniversity — delightfully — the Tufts student newspaper, the Tufts Daily, at which I was the photo editor as an undergrad, published a photo of mine as well.

    date:

    client:
    Reuters
    summary:
    It turns out Minnesota is the nation's top sugar beet producer - the sugar beet being a primary source for domestically produced raw sugar. The summer of 2019 was a wet one, followed by a freeze that left huge amounts of the state's sugar beet crop frozen in the ground. I pitched this story after hearing about it on MPR to look into how the farmers are faring.

Environmentalists and regulators have restricted fishermen’s ability to work as fish populations such as cod reach dangerously low levels. Gloucester, Massachusetts, a 400 hundred year-old seaport is struggling. Fishermen are backing out of the industry and a once impressive fleet has been reduced to no more than a handful of boats. Will the Gloucester of tomorrow resemble its blue-collar fishing heritage?

    summary:
    The company from which Tufts contracts its custodial services, DTZ, formerly UGL Unicco, has had a business relationship with the university since 2011. While custodians, union representatives and students demanded that the university make no cuts to the janitorial staff, members of the administration defended the decision to reallocate custodial labor and said that the terms of the reorganization were to be determined by DTZ alone.

    Throughout the last year, Tufts Labor Coalition (TLC) has been organizing in support of DTZ custodial employees who work on Tufts’ campuses. Students, faculty, staff and members of the custodians’ union, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) 32BJ, held demonstrations in opposition to a reorganization of the staff, which was originally estimated to result in 35 layoffs and was projected to save the university $900,000 annually. After the restructuring was implemented earlier this year — ultimately displacing 18 custodians, seven of whom are no longer working with DTZ — efforts have turned to fundraising in support of those workers who were affected.

In 2006 her landlord suddenly evicted her and every other resident of their building in Johannesburg's Central Business District to make way for new construction: a mall. Kadende is a victim of the city government's efforts to rejuvenate low-income areas with shopping centers and small businesses - an effort commonly known as gentrification. Since her eviction, Kadende, 42, her eight year old daughter Madeleine and her twenty year old nephew Washington have lived in a desperate housing situation, provided by the government that theoretically treats accommodation as a human right but practically is overwhelmed by systemic poverty.
