He is not afraid of hard work. Nigel is also dedicated to his teammates, was a fearless leader this year and a total class act.

Everyone—riders, staff and management—will miss having him around but everyone is also really happy for him. In every race we did this year Nigel found a way to infiltrate breakaways and put pressure on the defending teams. Off the bike Nigel went from young understudy 3 years ago, to team leader this year, setting the tone for our expectations. Cycling is a damn hard sport.

Without having a good calendar, equipment, infrastructure and mentorship; few can succeed in cycling. With Silber Pro Cycling, Canada will continue to send year-after-year male cyclists to the pro echelon. I feel lucky to have been a part of this program. Many thanks to Scott, Arthur, the staff and the many excellent partners at the team. Buy Gold and Silver Coins and Bars online.

Silver Bar Kangaroo 1 oz. Panda 30 Gram Silver He returned to his position at BU after losing the election to William Weld. That same year he was appointed by Gov. Weld to serve as head of the Massachusetts Board of Education.

Among Silber's recruits to the Boston University faculty were the author Saul Bellow and Elie Wiesel , writer and concentration camp survivor. Under Silber, Boston University increased in size but questions about his leadership style caused splits among faculty and alumni. In his early days as BU President, Silber accused the faculty of mediocrity and the students of fostering anarchy, and they, in turn, accused him of tyrannical rule.

According to Perspectives Online , the publication of the American Historical Association , "at a time when the BU president Silber was running roughshod over faculty rights, Fritz Ringer bravely and vigorously championed the principles of academic freedom. Initially the Silber administration would not negotiate with the union. In the refusal was challenged in a lawsuit.

Two-thirds of the faculty and deans demanded the board of trustees fire Silber. The faculty conducted a brief strike in , which was followed by a clerical workers' walkout in which several faculty members refused to cross the picket line. Silber charged five of these faculty members with negligence and moved to have them disciplined. At that point faculty members throughout Boston signed a petition to have Silber removed.

Silber was especially visible for confrontations with historian Howard Zinn. In one incident, Zinn arranged to take a sabbatical and teach in Paris , with Herbert Marcuse teaching at BU in the meantime. Silber vetoed the move. Silber also prevented Zinn from receiving pay raises and promotions over a number of years. In , the courts ruled that faculty in the local AAUP chapter were "managerial" employees, and therefore could not engage in collective bargaining.

Investments continued, even after a rebuke from state regulators because of the risk involved. The bulk of the investment was lost when the Seragen stock collapsed. In , Silber ordered that the Boston University Academy , a prep school operated by BU, disband its gay-straight alliance , a student club that staged demonstrations to publicize the deleterious effects of homophobia.

Silber dismissed the stated purpose of the club—to serve as a support group for gay students and to promote tolerance and understanding between gay and straight students—accusing the club of being a vehicle for "homosexual recruitment. Silber advocated integration at the University of Texas , and was the first person to chair the Texas Society to Abolish Capital Punishment.

In the Massachusetts gubernatorial election of , Silber ran for Governor of Massachusetts as a Democrat. His outsider status, as well as his outspoken and combative style, were at first seen as advantages in a year in which voters were disenchanted with the Democratic Party establishment. Silber's perceived angry personality, coupled with Weld's socially liberal views, helped Weld in the race. During the gubernatorial race, Silber regularly overreacted to questions from the press.

These overreactions came to be known as "Silber shockers. He questioned saving the lives of terminally ill elderly people, quoting Shakespeare and saying that "when you've had a long life and you're ripe, then it's time to go. He said that the feminist Gloria Steinem , the black Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan , and white supremacists are "the kind of people I wouldn't appoint as judges.

Ultimately, Weld was able to hold on to a significant portion of the Republican base while appealing to large numbers of Democrats and left-of-center independents, enabling him to defeat Silber by four points.

Weld became the first Republican to serve as governor since
