I make a lot of parenting mistakes. Some are minor, like forgetting we need ketchup or, in a moment of desperation at the ice rink, putting Diet Coke in Emma’s sippy cup. Now she loves the stuff. This week I made a major mistake.
Step by step, the Haitians rebuild, and Notre Dame is very much part of it.

Life has a certain way of sneaking up on you. It dawned on me one day that Lou Holtz was four coaches ago; many of my colleagues do not remember where they were when Kennedy was shot because they were not yet anywhere.
The earthquakes that recently rumbled Haiti, Chile and China also dominated the media with Richter-scale force. For a few days, it’s nonstop coverage as survivors are dragged from the rubble and families share their grief with the world. But as action shifts from the disaster itself to the arduous work of making life normal again — providing food, medicine, shelter and hope for those who have lost so much — the TV crews leave.…

At this point in her life’s journey, Maraya Steadman ’89, ’90MBA is a stay-at-home mother of three. Her Notre Dame diplomas hang in the laundry room as she struggles with trying to fold fitted sheets.
Maybe no man is an island. But pack 135 of them together inside 6,000 tons of airtight steel suspended hundreds of feet beneath the surface of the ocean, and collectively that’s what they become.
Astronaut Michael T. Good ’84, ’86M.S. was a crew member on the Space Shuttle Atlantis’ final mission in May.

Unless you’ve been at death’s door with a compromised immune system or happen to be a medicinal chemist, chances are you’ve never heard of a “carbapenem” antibiotic.

The commemorations last year of the birth of Charles Darwin (1809) and of the publication of On the Origin of Species (1859) offered us a stark reminder that scientific advances in evolutionary biology and cosmology have long served as the basis for that increasingly pervasive philosophical outlook, which dismisses divine agency.…
