Read Full Story Nevin Scrimshaw, a nutritionist who pioneered the use of protein supplements to save the lives of children at risk of dying from malnutrition, passed away on February 8, 2013. He was 95.Scrimshaw, M.P.H. ’59, who received HSPH’s Alumni Award of Merit in 1995, devoted his seven-decade career to the field of international nutrition. Soon after training as a physician, he moved his young family from the University of Rochester to Guatemala, where he founded the Institute of Nutrition of Central America and Panama. His professors told him that by devoting himself to the then-exotic specialty he would be throwing away his career, Scrimshaw told the Boston Globe in 2008.In the 1950s, Scrimshaw pioneered the use of indigenous protein sources to create an inexpensive mixture that could be fed to young children to combat deadly malnutrition. His product, Incaparina, is still given to 80 percent of Guatemalan children during their first year. He guided the production of a similar food in India, and his approach is still used to develop other such products in developing countries.Scrimshaw also worked to reduce endemic goiter, a thyroid condition in children caused by a mother’s iodine deficiency. He developed a method of iodizing local salt and worked with governments to require iodation of all table salt. He also was a leader in research on the link between malnutrition and infection.

Plus, not every club wants to begin with a week on the road.The Tigers are playing their first 25 games in Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Comerica Park.“You’re not going to get me to criticize Major League Baseball. I’ve already seen my face enough on TV,” said Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire, who was ejected on opening day.“I’m not a schedule-maker. I just let them do their thing,” he said. “We’ve always said it would be nice to start down South for the first week and play in better weather areas. Eventually, you’re going to have a home opener soon. Our folks don’t want to wait.”In the meantime, players do their best to cope.White Sox teammates Leury Garcia and Yolmer Sanchez said they slathered Vaseline on their bodies to keep warm.

And the weather is still cold in October. But it’s something about it in October we don’t care. And in April we do,” he said.“Where are we shooting to go? It’s going to be cold in October. This is a dress rehearsal,” Cora said.The season began on March 29 and marked the earliest start date in the majors, excluding special openers in international sites such as Japan and Australia.As part of the labor agreement between players and owners, this season will span 187 days, instead of 183. That will allow for extra days off and more room to reschedule makeups. It also sets up for Game 7 of the World Series, if needed, to be played in October, rather than November.Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn admits it’s tough to see games played in flurries and frigid conditions. He also said the additional four days off will benefit teams later in the spring and summer.“It’s a part of the price to pay for that, I think,” he said. “Unless you’re going to push back the postseason, which I think is distasteful to a lot of people, or shorten the season, which is probably a long shot, I would say there’s probably not much we can do.”As in, no going back to a 154-game schedule or adding in a bunch of doubleheaders.MLB has tried to adjust the schedule in the past to have teams with warmer climates and indoor parks play first.
