The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday passed legislation to subsidize the domestic semiconductor microchip industry in a bid to compete with Chinese and foreign manufacturers. The final vote was 243 to 187, and with 24 Republicans backing 218 Democrats. The bill is now being sent to the White House where President Biden is expected to sign it.

The Senate passed the Chips and Science Act on Wednesday. The bill approves $52 billion in government subsidies for US production of semiconductors, which are used in everything from cars and trucks to computers and video games. It also includes a $24 billion chip factory investment tax credit.

The shortage of semiconductor chips began in 2019 at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic when demand began to outstrip supply.

Semiconductor chips are used in almost every industry as well as multiple everyday products. The materials required include silicon and are absolutely essential in building integrated circuits or microchips that drive most modern devices.

The shortage of chips is due to four reasons:

  • The automobile sector : computer chips appear in most modern automobiles, including their security systems and computer panels. As the industry moved away from “dumb” versions involving wiring and an internal combustion engine, the demand for these computer chips increased dramatically.
  • General increase in demand for electronics: We are in the age of the computer and that means microchips. It means integrated circuits. The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic put an end to many factors involved in the production of microchips, while people bored by the lockdown wanted to play video games and had to work from home on microchip-equipped computers. The decrease in the number of factories meant a decrease in the supply of chips while the increase in the number of computers taken off the shelves and plugged into the house meant an increase in the demand for chips.
  • A broken supply chain: The pandemic has caused considerable disruption in the supply chain, from which we have not yet fully recovered. Seaports that reopened when restrictions were lifted have returned to work with new cargo restrictions and as a result many people are left without packages.
  • Political Concerns: Some 80% of advanced microchips are made in Taiwan, and China is doing everything it can to make sure it swallows Taiwan whole. The United States (and Canada) doesn’t exactly have the best relationship with the People’s Republic of China, due to the trade war and Canada’s treatment of Hauwei’s chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou. China is busy building its own chip production and the United States is doing the same.

The legislation also provides an additional $200 billion over 10 years to help U.S. scientific research better compete with China, though Congress would still be required to pass appropriations legislation to fund those investments.

It’s not particularly common for politicians in the United States to support large subsidies for private companies, but there is an inherent geopolitical trade conflict, and they recognize that China and the European Union have allocated billions to their companies. of chips. Add to that national security concerns and a huge, completely locked-in supply chain that has curtailed global manufacturing of these microchip embedded components, and it starts to make sense.

DALLAS – New York City has three main airports located outside of Manhattan, namely JFK, Newark (EWR) and LaGuardia (LGA). Today, we take a look at three lesser-known airports that once served, or nearly served, the Big Apple.

The world’s first officially established airport opened in 1908 on the site of a former Morris Park racetrack in the Bronx, but it was demolished a few years later to fit into the expanding city. In its place, city officials chose a location in south Brooklyn that would become Floyd Bennett Field.

A government site committee selected the Bronx site as one of six potential airport locations; the other four became LaGuardia, Newark Liberty, JFK, and Teterboro airports. The Wright brothers and other aviation pioneers frequented the fifth, Governor’s Island, which had a runway until the 1960s, but that’s for another story.

Although plans for a major airport in the New York area had been discussed since 1925, little action was taken until 1927, when Charles Lindbergh’s solo transatlantic flight really got the ball rolling.

That year, the Bronx Chamber of Commerce realized it had to make New York City’s first municipal airport a reality.

Field Floyd Bennet


Floyd Bennett Field began in 1928 by pumping sand from the bottom of Jamaica Bay into the waterways separating Barren Island and a few other islands from the rest of Brooklyn. The airfield is located in the Marine Park neighborhood of southeast Brooklyn near Jamaica Bay. Prior to being used as a naval air station, the airport served as a hub for general and commercial aviation.

Floyd Bennett, a renowned aviator who led the first plane to fly over the North Pole and envisioned an airfield on Barren Island before he died in 1928, had the airport named after him.

It was inaugurated on June 26, 1930 and on May 23, 1931 it was officially made available for commercial flights. However, Bennett Field did not see much commercial traffic despite the excellent quality of its facilities and was mainly used for general aviation. Airmen flying to or from Bennett Field set dozens of aviation records during the interwar period.

The Old Flying Field, which operated from 1911 to 1916, is now a shopping center, while the East Field, which was once an industrial park but is now primarily a commercial area with townhouses and The Source shopping center on the site of the former runway.

During the “golden age of aviation” of the 1930s, Floyd Bennett Field served as the home base for many illustrious pilots. This was the result of a number of favorable circumstances, including climate, topography, current infrastructure and little commercial activity.

Bennett Field has served as the starting point or final destination for numerous world or transoceanic record flights, including 26 such trips and 10 transcontinental flights.

Bennett Field is currently managed by the National Park Service and is part of the Jamaica Bay unit of the Gateway National Recreation Area (NPS). The New York City Police Department (NYPD) still uses part of the airfield as a helicopter base, and one runway is reserved for amateurs flying radio-controlled aircraft, despite the fact that it is no longer used as a active commercial, military or general aviation airfield.

The United States Coast Guard and United States Navy began occupying part of the airport in the 1930s. On June 2, 1941, Bennett Field joined Naval Air Station New York following the start of the Second World War.

During World War II, Floyd Bennett Field served as the focal point for naval operations. The airfield served as a Naval Air Reserve station after the war. Bennett Field was last used by the Navy in 1970. However, the Coast Guard continued to use it until 1998, and a reserve facility remained there until 1983.

Bennett Field was to be used for various purposes; however, it was not until 1972 that a decision was made to incorporate the airport into the Gateway National Recreation Area. In 1974, Floyd Bennett Field reopened as a park.

As one of the largest collections and best examples of commercial aviation architecture of the time, and because of the region’s significant contributions to general aviation and military aviation during the between the wars, many of the earliest surviving original structures are included in a historic district. listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Roosevelt Field


A former New York airport called Roosevelt Field lies 3.7 kilometers (2.3 miles) east-southeast of Mineola, Long Island, New York. During World War I, the United States Army Air Service used Hazelhurst Field, also known as Hempstead Plains Airfield, Hempstead Plains Field, or even Garden City Airfield, as an airfield. coaching.

It was renamed in 1919 to recognize President Theodore Roosevelt’s son, Quentin, who died in aerial combat in World War I.

Many important flights of early aviation, including Charles Lindbergh’s solo transatlantic flight in 1927, took off from Roosevelt Field. Other early aviators like Amelia Earhart and Wiley Post also used it.

Once the property was in civilian hands after the war, the owners divided the remaining land into two separate areas before selling off pieces along the southern boundary of the field. Half of the western section along Clinton Road was taken up by Curtiss Field, a 300-acre airfield built on the original site of Hazelhurst Field.

The remaining area was occupied by Roosevelt Field, which included an east-west compacted clay runway approximately 5,000 feet long on the cliff, seven hangars, a substantial parking ramp near Curtiss Field, and other structures.

On September 21, 1926, René Fonck attempted to launch the Sikorsky S-35 in pursuit of the Orteig prize, but the aircraft was considerably overweight and strained the auxiliary landing gear placed to help carry the burden, breaking a wheel in the process. Two of the crew died when the aircraft, unable to achieve lifting speed, cartwheeled off the end of the cliff and burst into flames.

The runway at Roosevelt Field would be late used by Charles Lindbergh to take off aboard the Spirit of St. Louis on his trip to Paris the following May.

During World War II, the Navy and Army both used Roosevelt Field, which resumed operation as a commercial airport after the war until 1950, when it was purchased by property developers. On May 31, 1951, the field was closed.

The Bronx airport that never was


In August 1927, local businessmen gathered for the ceremonial opening of a new airstrip in the Bronx Wetlands. Shortly after, a single-engine biplane came in for its first landing, but instead of being greeted with joy, the crash included an automobile parked on the makeshift runway.

Although no one was injured, the failure of the attempt to create an airport in the Bronx was a bad omen. Many New York residents and visitors would be arriving in the eastern Bronx today rather than LaGuardia Airport in northern Queens if all had gone according to plan.

On October 1, 1928, one of New Jersey’s locations in the Newark area, which is now known as Newark Liberty International Airport, opened. However, the entry of a private company into the competition was to hamper the plans of a New York counterpart.

In 1929, a number of aviation companies merged to become the Curtiss-Wright Corporation, which at the time was the largest aviation company in the United States.

With over $35 million in cash, Curtiss-Wright decided to diversify its business beyond aircraft production by building an extensive network of airports across the country. The East Bronx Swamps in New York was a perfect fit and good value.

As soon as possible, Curtiss-Wright began acquiring land in the Bronx with the intention of building what a local newspaper called “the world’s largest airport on the shore of Eastchester Creek”.

A title of June 5, 1929 of The New York Times read, “$3,000,000 PLANNED AIRPORT IN THE BRONX; Curtiss Corporation announces the purchase of a site adjacent to Pelham Bay Park. WORK TO START SOON The 250-acre triangular terrain is described as ideal for sea and land aircraft.

As you might have guessed, residents of the nearby village of Pelham Manor didn’t like the idea of ​​having an airport in their backyard. Despite the village’s location in Westchester County, local authorities attempted to change zoning regulations to stop construction of the airport.

The airport seemed inescapable until the stock market crash of October 1929. With its property taxes on a single location over half a million dollars outstanding in 1936, Curtiss-Wright quickly liquidated its airport subsidiary.

By then, unhappy with the commute time from Brooklyn’s Floyd Bennett Field to Manhattan, New York City Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia had shifted his gaze to northern Queens. In 1934, he refused to land at Newark Airport in New Jersey because his ticket read “New York.” He called for a new, modern airport closer to Manhattan’s business center. This airport, which today bears his name, opened in 1939.

ENEOS Corporation, Suzuki Motor Corporation, Subaru Corporation, Daihatsu Motor Company, Toyota Motor Corporation, and Toyota Tsusho Corporation established the Biomass Innovation Research Association for Next-Generation Automotive Fuels on July 1, 2022, to study ways to optimize the fuel production process.

Providing diverse energy options to meet the needs of many different regions and customers is crucial to achieving carbon neutrality. Hydrogen and synthetic fuels based on electricity from renewable energy sources, as well as bioethanol fuel capable of reducing CO2 emissions by photosynthesis in plants are promising options, and their effectiveness has been confirmed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). However, it is essential to clarify the issues and seek a solution regarding the reduction of CO2 emissions and the social implementation throughout the manufacturing process, in addition to the supply of raw materials for each of these fuels.

This research association promotes technological research on the use of biomass, as well as the efficient production of bioethanol fuel for automobiles through the optimized circulation of hydrogen, oxygen and CO2 during production to achieve a carbon neutral society. The specific research areas are as follows.

(1) Research on efficient ethanol production systems

With the aim of improving the production technology of second-generation bioethanol fuel that does not compete with food, the research association will design, install and operate production facilities, identify production problems, research solutions and study ways to improve production efficiency. systems.

(2) Research on by-product oxygen, CO2 capture and utilization

The research association will study how to use the high concentration of oxygen generated as a by-product during the production of hydrogen, as well as the CO2 generated during the production of bioethanol.

(3) Research on the efficient operation of the whole system, including the use of fuel

The research association will study problems related to the use of obtained bioethanol fuel in automobiles and other vehicles and explore solutions. It will also study model formulas that can make predictions on both feedstock cultivation production volumes and fuel production volumes.

(4) Research on efficient methods of cultivation of raw materials

The research organization will develop a system offering optimal cultivation methods to maximize yield and optimize crop components to secure feedstock for bioethanol fuels. It will aim to improve the accuracy of crop yield productions through soil composition surveys and other methods.

US District Court in Colorado issues TRO against magazine and gun ban https://nkyzine.com/us-district-court-in-colorado-issues-tro-against-magazine-and-gun-ban/ Sat, 23 Jul 2022 01:02:15 +0000 https://nkyzine.com/us-district-court-in-colorado-issues-tro-against-magazine-and-gun-ban/ Today, U.S. District Judge Raymond P.

Today, U.S. District Judge Raymond P. Moore issued a temporary restraining order against the ban on so-called “assault weapons” recently enacted by the city of Superior, Colorado in Boulder County. . The case is Rocky Mountain Gun Owners v. Superior.

The plaintiffs’ lead attorney was Barry Arrington, one of Colorado’s top education law attorneys and now the winner of a major Second Amendment case. Arrington previously served in the Colorado House of Representatives and as a trustee of the Independence Institute, where I work.

Judge Moore was previously a corporate lawyer (Davis, Graham and Stubbs, Denver), then Chief Federal Public Defender for Colorado and Wyoming. He was nominated to the bench by President Obama in 2013 and confirmed unanimously.

Like several other towns in Boulder County, Superior recently banned semi-automatic centerfire rifles that have at least one supposedly bad feature, such as an adjustable stock; various semi-automatic shotguns; various semi-automatic handguns; and magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds.

It was obvious that these weapons are “commonly used by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes”, which has been the rule of the Supreme Court since then. District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) for which weapons are protected by the Second Amendment. First, the Colorado attorney general and the plaintiffs in an earlier case challenging the state of Colorado’s ban on magazines longer than 15 turns had said so. Colorado Outfitters Ass’n vs. Hickenlooper, 24 F. Supp. 3d 1050, 1068 (D. Colo. 2014), partly released for other reasons and sent back, 823 F.3d 537 (10th Cir. 2016). (I represented 55 Colorado sheriff plaintiffs in the case, which ended with the 10th Circuit declaring that neither the sheriffs nor the many other individual and organizational plaintiffs had standing.) Commonalities have also been found in the undisputed facts set forth in the judgment of Judge Traxler of the Fourth Circuit. dissenting opinion in Kolbe vs. Hogan, 849 F.3d 114, 153-55 (4th Cir. 2017). The opinions of many other circuit courts provide further and compelling evidence of commonalities; banned firearms number in the millions, at least, and banned magazines account for more than half of all magazines.

In accordance with the recent Supreme Court decision in New York State Rifles and Pistols Association vs. Bruen, courts are expected to decide Second Amendment cases on text, history, and tradition. The judge cannot decide based on his own opinions about good policy, nor should he defer to the judgments of legislative policy. The balancing policy was already being pursued by the American people when they passed the Second Amendment.

In BrownAccording to the historical approach of , the most significant periods are the Founding Era and the Reconstruction (when the Fourteenth Amendment made the Second Amendment binding on state and local governments). English history is relevant in that it shows an unbroken tradition that was adopted in America and continued to the founding. Colonial history is also relevant. The same goes for 19th century history and (with the exception of reconstruction) the sooner the better. The end of the 19th century is weaker and the 20th century is much too late to show a historical tradition that could override the text of the Second Amendment.

Judge Moore wrote: “the Court ignores historical precedent that would allow a government entity to ban a type of weapon entirely which is commonly used by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes, whether in at home or in public.”

To be precise, there are a few precedents prior to 1900, but none are more valid.

After incidents in which armed blacks deterred mobs from lynching, Florida in 1893 enacted a license requirement, an exorbitant bond for carrying or possessing a “Winchester or other repeating rifle.” Florida Statutes 1893, c. 4147, §1. In 1941, a Florida Supreme Court justice explained that the law was enacted to control black workers:

The statute was never intended to be applied to the white population and in practice was never so applied…. [T]here, to my knowledge, no effort has been made to enforce the provisions of this law against whites, as it has been generally agreed that it contravenes the Constitution and is unenforceable if challenged .

Watson vs. Stone, 4 So. 2d 700, 703 (1941) (Buford, J., agreeing) (agreeing with majority holding that the law does not apply to the transportation of automobiles).

Once the racist white “redeemed” governments regained control of Tennessee and Arkansas after Reconstruction ended, they banned concealable handguns and the bans were upheld in state courts. State v. Wilburn66 Tennessee (7 Bax.) 57 (1872); Fife v State, 31 Ark. 455 (1876). Given that Brown affirms the right to carry a concealed handgun, these precedents are invalid.

The supervisory case law of Brown being clear, and the exercise of a constitutional right being removed, the advisability of a TRO was obvious.

The Colorado plaintiffs also challenged Superior’s ban on open carry of handguns. Judge Moore denied the TRO’s motion against the open carry ban. As he rightly said, Brown affirms the right to bear arms, but also allows governments to decide whether the mode of transport should be open or concealed. Since 2003 in Colorado, concealed carry permits have been available to security-trained adults who pass a fingerprint-based background check. A system that prohibits open carry while allowing concealed carry does not violate the Second Amendment.

After Brown, the Supreme Court granted, quashed, and remanded the California and New Jersey 10-Round magazine forfeiture cases. GVR’d was also a case regarding Maryland’s ban on ordinary rifles. Additionally, new cases involving similar bans have been filed in various jurisdictions.

The Superior case is the first to result in a judicial opinion and could be a compelling, though not binding, precedent in cases nationwide.

It was during her freshman year of high school that the light bulb went out (in an antique Murano chandelier, presumably) for Zara Taitt. Although she always had a love for patterns and colors – a result of summers spent in her parents’ native Barbados – design was nowhere on her radar. But the blueprints brought home by her father, a civil engineer at Marriott, piqued her curiosity, as did the automotive aesthetics. “I was the weird high school girl who had posters of cars in her room,” recalls Taitt, who grew up in Irving. On a whim, she took an introductory design course that sealed her fate, and less than a year after graduating from UNT interior design, she was hired by the famous designer Jan Showers. “I just absorbed it all,” Taitt says of their 16-year working relationship. When she’s not working, busy being a mom, or trying out new restaurants, Taitt uses her platform for good. She sits on the board of Dwell With Dignity and was the first featured designer for their Thrift Studio Live initiative, which showcases diversity in design. Here, Taitt shares some of his favorite things, in Dallas and at home.

Favorite local restaurant: Hill ! The second would be Oishii.

Place not enough people know but should: Indigo 1745 in the Bishop Arts District. Excellent local skincare, jewelry and the sweetest men’s t-shirts.

Favorite weekend activity: Family time around a meal or a good movie. Also, taking care of yourself – the pandemic made me realize that there is nothing wrong with taking time for myself.

Favorite local artist: Desiree Vaniecia. I first saw her work at the Dallas Kips Bay Showhouse in 2020 and it immediately hit me.

A house can never have too many: Photos of family and friends. Having good “frozen in time” memories is good for the soul.

Favorite scent: Lemon, Lavender and Vanilla – I’ve been using diffusers lately and these essential oils are in rotation.

Favorite service must-have: Trivet by Jill Walker featuring watercolor scenes of Barbados. They add color and memories to the table.

Favorite art or coffee table book: Rihanna (Phaidon)

Accessory you reach for more than any other: Little golden earrings, they go with everything!

One thing everyone should have in their closet: A bright, classic, refined and fun blazer all in one.

Favorite Apothecary Item: Multi-purpose rose oil. It is a mixture of apricot seed oil and rose almond. The sweet scent lingers all day.

Best hosting hack: White votive candles – the quiet glow of candles looks great on a table. And hydrangeas, they can fill a vase with a few stems.

Go-to bottle of wine: Black Girl Magic Pink

Favorite travel destination:Barbados. It’s where my family is from, and every time I land, I feel at home. I can’t wait to see my family, to go to the beach, to eat a chefette roti and a mango from my aunt’s garden.

Favorite item you bought last year:Under your “Heal” Whipped Skin Puff Mask. I’m into skincare and this body cream is my little luxury.

The best advice you’ve ever received:“Many hands do light work.” -My mother

On Sunday, the New York Times Magazine published an interview with economist Herman Daly, a professor emeritus at the University of Maryland who was formerly a senior economist at the World Bank, titled “This Pioneering Economist Says Our Obsession With Growth Must End “.

During the interview, Daly argued that the world is too “full” and that people have exploited its resources, that the government should reduce its focus on growth to help prevent climate change, and that countries wealthy like America need to limit their consumption of goods so that we “make ecological space”. for the poor [countries] to catch”.

“Without a steadily rising GDP, we are told, we risk social instability, falling living standards and just about any hope of progress,” said David Marchese, the interviewer, in his introduction.

“But what about the counter-intuitive possibility that our current pursuit of growth, however crazy and causing such great ecological damage, is carrying more costs than gains?” he continued, explaining that Daly has been exploring the idea that “prioritizing growth is ultimately a losing game” for decades.

He said Daly created a theory that “renounces the insatiable and destructive hunger of the environment for growth” and “recognizes the physical limits of our planet”.

For his part, Daly questioned GDP as a measure of a country’s well-being. “Does growth, as currently practiced and measured, really increase wealth? Does it make us richer in an overall sense, or could it increase costs faster than profits and make us wealthier? poor?” He asked. “If it [GDP] increases, does this mean that we are increasing the standard of living? We said yes, but we left out all the costs of the increase in GDP”

Daly attributed “deaths and injuries caused by automobile accidents, chemical pollution, forest fires and many other costs” to “excessive growth” in wealthy countries.

He argued that America and other developed countries must reduce their consumption so that “we don’t monopolize all the resources for trivial consumption” because “the rich part of the world must make room ecologically for the poor catch up to an acceptable level. standard of living.”

While Daly pleads for Americans to lower their standard of living, US Presidential Climate Envoy John Kerry’s private jet has emitted more than 300 metric tons of carbon since Biden took office.

Daly also said the planet is “full” to its ecological capacity and people are “exploiting” and “depleting[e]” natural resources.

Volvo has been very clear that the industry should move faster to zero-emission transport, but after the European Parliament voted in June in favor of the 2035 deadline, ACEA said that “any long-term regulations term beyond this decade is premature at this early stage.”

The Swedish carmaker’s frustration is evident in the following statement: “We have concluded that Volvo Cars’ sustainability strategy and ambitions are not fully aligned with ACEA’s positioning and way of working at this stage. So we think it’s best to take a different path for What we do as an industry will play a major role in deciding whether the world has a chance to fight climate change. We have one of the most ambitious plans in the industry, but we cannot achieve zero emissions transport on our own.”

In a statement that some might say sidesteps the issues, ACEA would simply say: “We recognize Volvo Cars’ decision to leave ACEA by the end of the year. We are in the midst of unprecedented change. ACEA will continue to drive Europe’s ambitious mobility transformation, building on the industry’s global competitive position throughout the transition. We remain committed to acting as the voice of European car, truck, van and bus manufacturers, working hand in hand with all relevant partners and stakeholders.”

Santa J. Ono, biomedical researcher and president and vice-chancellor of the University of British Columbia (UBC), was appointed on 15e president of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor (UM), and will officially take office on October 13.

The UM board voted unanimously to appoint Ono at a special meeting July 13 in Ann Arbor. Ono previously served as president of the University of Cincinnati and vice provost and deputy provost at Emory University.

“On behalf of all of us seated here and the entire University of Michigan community here and around the world, I would like to extend a warm welcome to Dr. Santa Ono and his wife, Wendy, who joined today,” says Paul Brown, Chairman of the Board of Regents

“We look forward to meeting your daughters Sarah and Juliana, and your son-in-law David, very soon. We are delighted and honored to have you here today and to welcome you all to the University of Michigan family. I know you will continue to help us serve the public good.

Ono, 59, is an experienced vision researcher whose pioneering work in experimental medicine focuses on the immune system and eye diseases. Her leadership track record at universities in the United States and Canada includes prioritizing sustainability efforts, strong advocacy for mental health issues, and an open communication style.

He has also focused on the accessibility and affordability of higher education through services at organizations such as the Posse Foundation, the Urban Health Initiative leadership of the Coalition of Urban Serving Universities and the launch of new programs in the universities it has served. At UBC, he led substantial truth and reconciliation efforts for Indigenous and other groups.

Ono is the leader of the University Climate Change Coalition, a network that connects 23 of the world’s leading research universities and academic systems committed to accelerating climate action. Times Higher Education ranked UBC among the top seven universities in the world in its impact rankings in each of the past four years for taking urgent action to address climate change and its impacts.

Ono is also president of the U15 Group of Canadian Research Universities, a collective of research-intensive institutions like the Association of American Universities.

“The University of Michigan is recognized worldwide as the pinnacle of public higher education,” Ono says. “It is a singular honor to have been chosen to lead such an extraordinary institution.

“I look forward to embracing the university community and supporting its education, scholarship, innovation and service. And I look forward to joining Michigan’s 600,000 alumni in cheering on the Wolverines.

Ono, who is of Japanese descent, is the first Asian American to lead UM. He was born in Vancouver, raised in Pennsylvania and Maryland, earned a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from the University of Chicago and a doctorate in experimental medicine from McGill University in Montreal.

He has taught at Johns Hopkins University, Harvard University and University College London. While at the University of Cincinnati, he also served as a professor of pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

Ono’s appointment follows an extensive search that began in February. A Presidential Search Committee comprised of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and regents worked with executive search firm Isaacson, Miller to identify and vet candidates.

The committee held seven public listening sessions earlier this year to gather feedback from community members on their hopes and expectations for a new president. An online survey collected additional thoughts from more than 1,000 respondents.

“Several clear and consistent themes emerged in terms of what our community wanted from a new leader,” said Regent Denise Ilitch, who along with Regent Sarah Hubbard co-chaired the search committee to select the new president. . “Someone who could build trust, lead with integrity, and actively engage all of Michigan’s constituencies. Someone who had strong emotional intelligence and communication and listening skills.

“After getting to know Dr. Ono and learning about his experiences as a university administrator, it is clear to me that he is the right person to lead the University of Michigan at this time.

Ono’s five-year term as president will begin on October 13. He succeeds Mary Sue Coleman, who has served on an interim basis since the board fired former chair Mark Schlissel on Jan. 15. She will continue in this role until Ono starts. Coleman led the university as its 13th president from 2002 to 2014.

Ono will receive a base salary of $975,000, subject to annual increases at the discretion of the Board of Directors, and $350,000 in deferred compensation beginning in the first year. He will also receive regular university benefits and additional contributions to a pension plan, accommodation in the president’s house, an expense allowance, and the use of an automobile and driver, all in accordance with university policies.

“In every sphere of human endeavor, you’ll find Michigan graduates among the leaders and the best,” Ono says. “I look forward to meeting alumni from around the world, as I consider them an integral part of the university community; part of our family.

The University of Michigan was founded in Detroit in 1817 and began establishing its main campus in Ann Arbor in the 1840s.
