Jane Havsy Morristown Daily Record Published 6:01 PM EDT Jun 22, 2019 The National Hockey League's annual draft is happening now, live from Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia. The USA TODAY Network New Jersey has compiled a list of players selected who have strong roots in the Garden State, both from high school and college. John Farinacci, C Pick: No. 76 of third round, by Arizona Coyotes High school: Dexter Southfield/Shattuck-St. Mary's/Delbarton (Chatham) The lowdown: Able to blend easily with his surroundings and get along with just about everyone, Farinacci (5-11, 190) is a very cerebral player who thinks faster than he skates. He played at Delbarton his freshman year, then transferred to Shattuck-St. Mary's in Minnesota, and is doing a post-graduate year at Dexter Southfield in Brookline, Mass. before heading to Harvard University in the fall. Marc Del Gaizo, D Pick: No. 109 of fourth round by Nashville Predators … [Read more...] about NHL Draft 2019: Which NJ alumni were selected?

Rick Kelleher is a big, white-haired, crisply presented man who looks very much the way you’d expect a Boston Irish power broker to look. If you found yourself sitting next to him on a plane, you might notice how he kept the conversation flowing naturally and emphasized his points with the physicality of a great salesman, dramatically raising his eyebrows and cocking his head. On this morning, Kelleher is seated at a back table in the lobby restaurant of the elegant Boston Harbor Hotel, where the server knows exactly how he likes his house-smoked salmon. He carries himself as if he owns the place, and, in a way, he does.

Few, if any, Democrats are shedding a tear over attorney Michael Avenatti’s announcement Tuesday that he will not run for president in 2020, but the party still faces the daunting task of winnowing down dozens of aspiring chief executives to select the one best positioned to drive Donald Trump out of the White House. "I do not make this decision lightly — I make it out of respect for my family," Avenatti said in a statement posted on Twitter. “But for their concerns, I would run.” The attorney earned some good will on the left earlier this year for his representation of porn actress and alleged former Trump mistress Stormy Daniels, but he squandered much of it by inserting himself into the fight against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in September. Losses in court and an arrest for alleged domestic violence piled on additional doubts about his viability. Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is also bowing out of the 2020 guessing game, according to … [Read more...] about Dozens of Democrats eyeing 2020 run, but bruising battles may lie ahead

Unlike most fields of work, which place a premium on formal education, the entertainment industry is full of rags-to-riches stories in which high school dropouts are propelled to the top of their game. The success of Al Pacino, Marilyn Monroe, Johnny Depp and Demi Moore—none of whom graduated high school—prove that spending time in a classroom is not essential to being a great actor.But whether they’re hedging their bets in case their career doesn't work out, or if they want the benefits of formal education, there are a number of high flying actors, directors and musicians who choose to attend college—and really good ones at that."I don't care if [college] ruins my career," Natalie Portman famously said in 2002 during her stint at Harvard University, where she studied psychology. "I'd rather be smart than a movie star." It’s rare that studying for a Harvard degree would do anything but enhance a career, but Portman had a point. She had already established … [Read more...] about Which Surprising Celebrities are Alumni of America’s Top Universities?
