- Ex-Stanford, Riordan athlete Tyrone L. McGraw dies at 29
By Mitch Stephens - Monday Jun 26, 2017
A year ago, Tyrone McGraw announced to the 2016 graduating class at Riordan — where a decade before he had spoken as the school’s valedictorian — that he was born with crack cocaine in his blood system.Four months later, his godfather and new caregiver, Brad Hallett, died of a stroke.McGraw’s commencement speech spent little time focusing on those details, instead clearly laying out thoughts, tools and internal ammunition to bypass and hurdle physical and mental obstacles.Ones he used to earn a scholarship to Stanford, where he was a running back for two years, set the school’s 60-meter record in track, and earned a bachelor’s degree with honors in American studies.Tools he utilized to study abroad — at Oxford and Berlin — and intern at the White House under President Barack Obama.On Sunday, almost a year to the date of his commencement speech, with girlfriend Mayte Sanchez by his side, McGraw died in his sleep after a three-year battle with cancer.Riordan principal Vittorio Anastasio, who has been at the school 33 years and who invited McGraw to speak, said his good friend and former student was upbeat until the end.Anastasio saw all of it at Riordan, where McGraw was the school single-season rushing leader and qualified for the state track meet.According to Anastasio, McGraw was everywhere.All the Ivy League schools wanted him, but he signed a letter of intent to Stanford presented to him by Hall of Fame coach Bill Walsh.“In 35 years as a sports journalist, I’ve never met anyone as inspiring as Tyrone McGraw,” he said.Social media posts were filled with similar sentiments.Anastasio said services are pending and that a memorial would be in the school’s 1,200-seat auditorium sometime in the next month.MaxPreps senior writer Mitch Stephens covers high school sports for The San Francisco Chronicle.
- Roger Abrahams, folklorist who studied African American language, dies
By William Grimes - Saturday Jul 1, 2017
Roger Abrahams, folklorist who studied African American language, diesRoger Abrahams, one of the first folklorists to study the language and performance styles of black Americans as reflected in songs, proverbs and riddles both old and new, died June 20 in Sunnyvale.Mr. Abrahams (pronounced Abrams) cast his net wide, exploring Anglo-American folk songs, jump-rope rhymes and counting rhymes, but devoted most of his scholarly energies to the African diaspora in the Caribbean and the United States.Earlier folklorists had focused on black religious expression, the language of the church and pulpit.The Emergence of African American Culture in the Plantation South (1992), Mr. Abrahams turned back the clock to study the corn-shucking ceremony, a ritual with songs and chants that he reconstructed through newspaper accounts, travelers tales and diaries as a means of understanding the social dynamics of plantation society.Historian Wilson Moses, reviewing the book in the Historian, called Mr. Abrahams “probably the most celebrated living preservationist of African American secular oral traditions.”John Szwed, Mr. Abrahams’ collaborator on “Discovering Afro-America” (1975) and the essay collection Blues for New Orleans:After earning a master’s degree in literature and folklore from Columbia University in 1959, Mr. Abrahams returned to the University of Pennsylvania, where, under the direction of Leach, was awarded a doctorate in literature and folklore in 1961.To better understand the African roots of African American folk practices and verbal styles, Mr. Abrahams did extensive field research in the Caribbean, beginning with a week on St. Kitts and Nevis in 1962.With ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax, he recorded sea chanteys and the songs performed at tea meetings, a combination variety show and church fundraiser.Mr. Abrahams pursued his interest in black speech and street culture in the United States in several works that, like “Deep Down in the Jungle,” rejected the current argument that black Americans suffered not only from poverty but from a deficient culture.Mr. Abrahams taught for many years in the English department of the University of Texas in Austin, where he also served as the director of the African and Afro-American Research Institute.
- Hearing is believing: Speech may be a clue to mental decline
By MARILYNN MARCHIONE, AP Chief Medical Writer - Monday Jul 17, 2017
More pauses, filler words and other verbal changes might be an early sign of mental decline, which can lead to Alzheimer's disease, a study suggests."What we've discovered here is there are aspects of language that are affected earlier than we thought," before or at the same time that memory problems emerge, said one study leader, Sterling Johnson of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.Next, they tested 264 participants in the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer's Prevention, a long-running study of people in their 50s and 60s, most of whom have a parent with Alzheimer's and might be at higher risk for the disease themselves.In the second round of tests , they declined faster on content (ideas they expressed) and fluency (the flow of speech and how many pauses and filler words they used.) They used more pronouns such as "it" or "they" instead of specific names for things, spoke in shorter sentences and took longer to convey what they had to say.Researchers could not estimate the cost of testing for a single patient, but for a doctor to offer it requires only a digital tape recorder and a computer program or app to analyze results.Another study at the conference on Monday, led by doctoral student Taylor Fields, hints that hearing loss may be another clue to possible mental decline.Family doctors "can do a lot to help us if they knew what to look for" to catch early signs of decline, said Maria Carrillo, the Alzheimer's Association's chief science officer.
