Video: Boris "Hope/Riot Sugar"
by Adam Bubolz · Published · Updated
Never content on being pigeonholed into anything, Japan’s Boris releases a video that cuts back and forth between two songs, one from each of their newly released albums. The video starts out with the shoegazey “Hope” and eventually winds up with the much heavier “Riot Sugar” and continues jumping back and forth between the two.
MILLION-DOLLAR GIFT OPENS DRIVE TO RAISE $4.5 MILLION FOR CANISIUS HIGH SCHOOL website canisius high school
The Buffalo News (Buffalo, NY) April 27, 1995 | DAVE CONDREN – News Religion Reporter Canisius High School today announced the kickoff of a $4.5 million capital campaign that is well under way, thanks to a $1 million gift from the Koessler family.
The fund drive, timed to coincide with the celebration of the school’s 125th anniversary, was announced by the Rev. Charles F. Kelley, the Jesuit priest who serves as president of the Catholic high school for boys.
During an afternoon news conference and reception for the school’s faculty, staff and benefactors, Father Kelley said that nearly $2.5 million has been raised during the initial phase of the campaign.
The Koessler family contributed $1 million, the largest gift in the school’s history.
He said the fund will be used for tuition, faculty endowment and capital improvements at the Jesuit-run school at 1180 Delaware Ave.
The slogan for the campaign is “A Foundation of Excellence . . . A Vision for the Future.” Father Kelley said a successful campaign will increase the endowment fund at Canisius to more than $6 million.
The new money will permit Canisius to increase its scholarship and financial assistance funds, he said, enabling the school “to continue its mission of making a Canisius education available to young men from a diversity of backgrounds.” The money set aside for faculty development will enable teachers to “pursue excellence in their respective teaching fields through the use of graduate courses and research,” he said.
Father Kelley characterized the $1 million gift from the Koesslers, a philanthropic Catholic family that achieved financial success in the printing industry, as “the largest in school history.” Members involved in making the gift include John W. Koessler Jr., class of 1945; Paul Koessler, class of 1955; William J. Koessler, class of 1974; Eric Koessler, class of 1984; and Ronald P. and Mary Koessler Smith. website canisius high school
Canisius has 550 students and 7,700 living alumni. Next fall’s freshman class is expected to be one of the largest in the recent history of the school, with 220 students registered to date.
Canisius High School was established by the Jesuits as a single institution with Canisius College in 1870 to educate the sons of German immigrants.
Both schools originally were located in a red brick building on Washington Street, adjacent to St. Michael’s Catholic Church, which also is staffed by the Jesuits.
The high school and college were reorganized as separate institutions in 1913 with the college moving to Main Street and Jefferson Avenue, its present location. Canisius High School moved to its Delaware Avenue site in 1944.
