Shaping Long Island's Bioeconomy: The Economic Impact of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

March 1, 2015

As one of New York's leading research institutions, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is an asset of particular value to New York State. In order to promote a clearer understanding of the multiple ways in which the Laboratory contributes to the life of New York State and its people, CSHL President & CEO Bruce Stillman, Ph.D. asked Appleseed -- a New York City-based economic development consulting firm -- to assess the Lab's impact on the state's economy -- and in particular, on the economy of Long Island. This report presents the results of Appleseed's analysis. Part Two highlights the impact of CSHL as an enterprise -- as an employer, a buyer of goods and services from New York companies and a sponsor of construction projects. Part Three explores several ways in which research conducted at CSHL contributes to the growth of the state's and the region's economy. Part Four of the report describes CSHL's Meetings and Courses Program, which each year brings thousands of the world's leading scientists to Long Island to discuss their work. Part Five describes the Lab's public education programs, which offer a wide range of opportunities for elementary and high school students, and for undergraduates and graduate students as well -- covering everything from basic scientific concepts and techniques to the latest advances in the life sciences. Finally, Part Six highlights several reasons why CSHL's impact on New York's and Long Island's economy could be even greater during the next five to ten years than it is today.

Protecting Assets & Child Custody in the Face of Deportation: A Guide for Practitioners Assisting Immigrant Families

May 1, 2012

The United States deported almost 397,000 immigrants in 2011, the highest number of deportations in a single year in our nation's history. Whether or not someone has a right to stay in the country, or an ability to enforce that right, he or she is entitled to a final paycheck and is not by law stripped of all financial rights or child custody. But in fact, persons being deported not only often lose their U.S. community and family security, but also the assets they have built up and to which they are entitled. This manual guides volunteer lawyers and non-lawyer practitioners through important financial and family rights threatened by the deportation process.
