每日英語跟讀 Ep.K480: About School - Italy’s oldest student graduates again aged 98
Giuseppe Paterno, who is 98, has become Italy’s oldest graduate - again.
Paterno has added a masters in history and philosophy from the University of Palermo to an initial degree in the same subjects he earned there two years ago.
Paterno passed the latest degree with top marks, again, his proud family said on Facebook.
He has no plans to rest and wants to write a novel using his trusty typewriter.
Born in 1923, Paterno grew up in a poor family in Sicily and despite his love of books and studying, he wasn’t able to go to university as a young man.
Instead he served in the navy during World War Two from the age of 20 and went on to be a railway worker.
Guilty! Law school sends out erroneous admissions emails 法律學院寄出錯誤的入學通知電郵
The Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts, said in a statement it’s guilty of accidentally sending acceptance emails to former and current applicants.
The School blamed a "technical error" for the glitch, saying the erroneous emails went to more than 200 people who applied for admission starting next fall, as well as to nearly 4,000 former applicants, some of whom are already enrolled.
Lakisha Papoutsakis, a single mother, who received the acceptance email, said that she has dreamed of going to law school since she was a child.
She shared the good news with her loved ones before noticing the follow-up email. "I was like, ’Oh my
God this is so amazing,’ and then it was like, ’Oh no, sorry, April Fool’s Day,’" she said.
她跟親愛的人們分享喜訊後，才注意到後續的電郵。她說：「我本來心想，『我的天啊，這太驚喜了』，然後又覺得，『喔不，真遺憾，這是愚人節吧』。」Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1546670 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1545424
