Menino’s innovation agenda and help revitalize Western Avenue.Jones, who will officially assume his duties on May 9, will serve as a key part of the lab’s planning and design team, helping to define and develop programs, build relationships within and beyond campus, and create an environment that will attract and support student innovators and enhance team activity. Additionally, he will develop and manage the operations of the lab and design programs to link thought leaders together with Innovation Lab occupants.In addition to 15 years of marketing and sales experience with Fortune 500, mid-size, and start-up companies in the consumer goods industry, Jones has both an impressive history of entrepreneurial activity and academic experience mentoring up-and-coming entrepreneurs. “With his extensive background helping undergraduate and graduate students, as well as his work with entrepreneurial ventures and his strong ties to Harvard University, Gordon is a superb choice for this new and important position,” said Joseph Lassiter, professor of management practice at Harvard Business School and faculty co-chair of the Harvard Innovation Lab. “He has the skills to build relationships between students and local entrepreneurs, create partnerships with area small business organizations, and develop a center of innovation that fully brings to life the spirit of innovation present throughout the wider University and community.”Read the full announcement.

Trump also said a quarantine would not be necessary in those states. Earlier on Saturday, Trump tweeted that he was considering a two-week quarantine due to the pandemic, even though the governors of New York Connecticut and New Jersey were unaware of the possibility.In an interview over the weekend, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said a quarantine “would be chaos and mayhem.”“It’s totally opposite everything he’s been saying. I don’t think it is plausible. I don’t think it is legal.”In the past days, federal and state authorities have been scrambling to slow down the spread of the deadly virus. The US surpassed Italy and China this week to become the country with the most coronavirus cases in the world.At least 121,285 people in the US have contracted the virus since the first case was reported in late January. The death toll has reached 2,043, doubling in the last two days.
