Jared Kushner was an excellent student in high school and graduated from Harvard with honors.” (About 90 percent of Jared’s 2003 class at Harvard also graduated with honors.)My Kushner discoveries were an offshoot of my research for a chapter on Harvard donors.Somebody had slipped me a document I had long coveted: the membership list of Harvard’s Committee on University Resources.
“His GPA did not warrant it, his SAT scores did not warrant it.We thought for sure, there was no way this was going to happen. It was a little bit disappointing because there were at the time other kids we thought should really get in on the merits, and they did not.”Risa Heller, a spokeswoman for Kushner Companies, said in an email Thursday that “the allegation” that Charles Kushner’s gift to Harvard was related to Jared’s admission “is and always has been false.” His parents, Charles and Seryl Kushner, “are enormously generous and have donated over 100 million dollars to universities, hospitals and other charitable causes.The moon is Earth's only natural satellite--an object that travels in an orbit, or curved path, around a larger object.The moon's orbit is elliptical, or oval shaped, which means that its distance from the Earth changes as it travels in its orbit.Planning expeditions to Earth’s nearest celestial neighbor is no longer just a NASA effort, though the US space agency has plans for a moon-orbiting space station that would serve as a staging ground for Mars missions in the early 2030s.
The United Launch Alliance, a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Boeing, is planning a lunar fueling station for spacecraft, capable of supporting 1,000 people living in space within 30 years.The moon travels in its orbit at an average speed of 2,237 miles (3,600 kilometers) per hour.As it gets closer to the Earth, it speeds up because of the Earth's strong gravitational pull. The Earth's gravitational pull also affects the moon's shape.At the time, Harvard accepted about one of every nine applicants.(Nowadays, it only takes one out of twenty.)I also quoted administrators at Jared’s high school, who described him as a less than stellar student and expressed dismay at Harvard’s decision.“There was no way anybody in the administrative office of the school thought he would on the merits get into Harvard,” a former official at The Frisch School in Paramus, New Jersey, told me."New Moon Rising" is the nineteenth episode of the fourth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and is the seventy-fifth episode altogether. Oz arrives back in Sunnydale, seemingly able to control his wolf side even during the full moon, and presents Willow with a difficult choice.
