HumIn Focus

As part of the Humanities Institute’s mission to publicize the social relevance of Humanities scholarship, we present HumIn Focus, an educational web series that asks scholars to reflect on the ideas lying behind pressing social issues. In each episode, we ask scholars to reflect on ideas in their work in ways that expand and enrich questions of current concern. In so doing, we hope to both broaden and deepen conversations about those questions in ways that emphasize how what we do in the Humanities matters crucially for all of us.

Tax-Wise Giving—IRA Charitable Rollover

tax-saving way to help wpsu

Making a gift from your IRA to WPSU-TV and FM is a tax-wise way to enrich the lives of your family, friends and neighbors through public media.

If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit The Pennsylvania State University and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as Penn State without having to pay income taxes on the money. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short.

By making a gift from your IRA, you can see your philanthropic dollars at work. You are jump-starting the legacy you would like to leave and giving yourself the joy of watching your philanthropy take shape.

Why consider this gift?

  • Your gift will be put to use today, allowing you to see the difference your donation is making.
  • You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you bene­fit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
  • If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution for the year, your IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.

A gift made from your IRA will never count as income but always make a difference!

How to Give

  1. Fill out the Letter to Administrator and send to your IRA plan administrator.
  2. Fill out the Letter to Penn State indicating WPSU as your chosen recipient and send to Penn State’s Office of Donor and Member Services via fax, email, or the address provided.

Contact your plan administrator and request a “qualified charitable distribution” be made directly to WPSU-TV or FM. It’s important to know that if you first receive the distribution and then donate the proceeds, the gift will not count as a qualified charitable distribution. We encourage you to consult with your advisors to fully understand the legal and financial impact of your charitable gift.

We’re Here to Help

If you and your advisors need more information about giving from your IRA, please contact WPSU membership director Jessica Peters at (814) 863-5597 or jessica@psu.edu.

Tina Williams Brewer

Pittsburgh, PA
Story Quilting – African symbolism, Black heritage

An internationally-honored creator of story quilts, Tina Williams Brewer is known for her artistic exploration of African-American history and the personal experiences associated with it. She uses symbolism, textile and fabrics to create story quilts that are motivated by issues focusing on family, women and children, and the spirituality of culture. Her work has been celebrated and displayed in locations as geographically distant and diverse as the United States Embassy in Ghana and the American Craft Museum in New York City.

Brewer has brought the joy of quilting to hundreds of individuals through her residency programs and volunteer efforts. Never an advocate of the traditional, she has been a leading force with the Pittsburgh-based residency program of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts as well as the Art and Kids Museum Project with the Society for Contemporary Craft and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts’ Preserving the First Culture traveling program. She is also a board member of the Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, an emeritus board member of Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, and a member of the Fiber Arts Guild of Pittsburgh and Women of Visions, Inc. In 2008, Brewer received the Service to the Arts award.

Brewer received her B.A. from Columbus College of Art and Design. A native of Huntington, West Virginia, she now lives in Pittsburgh with her husband, John Brewer. They have two children, John Emery and Kristine, and four grandchildren.

Ansumana Komba Gbembo

Ansumana Komba Gbembo

Erie, PA
West African clothing/tailoring

Originally from Sierra Leone, Ansumana Komba Gbembo fled to Guinea with his family in 1995 due to the Sierra Leone Civil War. In Guinea, he attended a trade institute through the United Nations Refugee Agency. Gbembo says many refugees learned new skills such as sewing and carpentry in this program. After three years, he and his family moved to Gambia and officially began his career as a tailor. However, when Gbembo got very sick in 2009, the U.N. moved him to the United States for medical treatment. He has been in Erie ever since.

Over the years, Gbembo has traveled twice to see his wife and three children, and to gather fabrics for his clientele in the states. In West African fashion, color and design are very important, and there are always new motifs emerging — unlike in America, he says. Gbembo is not just a tailor, but he is a designer, too. “I do not need a pattern when I sew. I do what my customers want, but I can create my own pieces. My art is combining patterns, colors and different fashions together.” Some of his unique projects include sewing for a Gambian minister, creating wedding gowns and other ceremonial clothing, and more recently, making special gloves for beekeeping suits.

Sewing means a lot to Gbembo because he was supported by the U.N. to learn this trade. That is also why he feels strongly about passing the art form onto others. In Gambia, Gbembo taught many young people how to sew in the West African tradition. In Erie, he has volunteered at the Bethany Outreach Center and currently mentors two local apprentices.

 

Alexandria Marguccio

Alexandria “Allie” Zupan Marguccio

Seward, PA
Idrija bobbin lacemaking

The great-granddaughter of a Slovene bobbin lacemaker, Allie Marguccio’s passion for her heritage is evidenced by her continued study and research of the artform. Idrija lace has long been a treasured gift sent by her Slovene relatives. With the help of her cousins, she was able to obtain the traditional materials used to make Idrija lace so that she could carry on the tradition in the USA. Marguccio has traveled to Slovenia numerous times to tour the lacemaking centers of Idrija — Železniki and Cerkno and studied under the tutelage of Metka Fortuna, director of the Idrija School of Lace, and Stana Frelih, Master Teacher.

In addition to private lessons at her home, Marguccio has taught beginning bobbin lace at the Bottle Works Ethnic Arts Center, United Elementary School where she formerly worked as a school librarian, and the New Florence Community Library. Along with teaching workshops to individual lace groups, she has taught Idrija lace at various events such as Ithaca Lace Days (Ithaca, NY), the Winter Lace Conference (Costa Mesa, California), and North Carolina Regional Lace Guild’s Spring Lace Day (Chapel Hill, NC). She has also taught at IOLI (International Organization of Lace, Inc.) Conventions in St. Paul, Minnesota, Salt Lake City, Utah, Sacramento, CA and Coralville, IA and is a member of the Five Rivers Bobbin Lacemakers of Western Pennsylvania, Finger Lakes Lace Guild (NY), IOLI, and OIDFA.

Marguccio’s lace work and her 2008 Pennsylvania Council on the Arts grant study project were showcased at exhibits in May and June of 2009 at the Bottle Works Ethnic Arts Center as part of a Slovenian Cultural Heritage Celebration and more recently in June 2013 as part of an Exhibit of Ethnic Arts. She and her husband Tom, who is a woodturner of lace bobbins, established Designs by Marguccio in 2003.

Vera Nakonechny

Vera Nakonechny

Philadelphia, PA
Rushnyky, Wedding and Healing Ritual Towels

Vera Nakonechny was born in Germany to Ukrainian parents who had been forced to move during the war. After immigrating to Philadelphia, she studied with many masters of Ukrainian traditional arts, including Eudokia Sorochaniuk. Since 1991 (when Ukraine declared independence), she has been traveling there regularly to both learn and teach textile traditions such as weaving, headpiece making, and embroidery for rushnyky. Rushnyky tell the story of family and civic life and often function as healing tools in Ukrainian communities (e.g., a sick person might be wrapped in a towel that has also been blessed and prayed over).

“For each occasion there is a different towel: birth, christening, wedding, healing… Each is done in different ways with different symbols and different embroideries, and yet each is always symbolizing that spiritual part of human life.”

Ingredients

  • ½ lb French green beans thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation

  1. Place green beans, carrots and butter in a sauté pan over high heat and stir to coat as butter melts.
  2. After 1 minute the green beans and carrots should be sizzling and popping. Take off heat and serve.

Ribeye Steak

Ingredients

  • 8 to 12 oz ribeye steak
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • tablespoon of butter
  • salt and pepper

Preparation

  1. Take your steaks out of the refrigerator an hour before you cook them in order to bring them up to room temperature.
  2. Season one side of your steaks generously with salt and pepper, then set aside for 5 minutes.
  3. Place your steaks so that the side with the fat cap is facing down, in a cast iron pan over medium heat for 3 minutes to render out some of the fat.
  4. Flip your steaks so that the seasoned side is down and cook for 4 minutes. Season the side facing up with salt and pepper.
  5. Flip your steaks and turn the heat down to medium-low. Cook for another 4 minutes.
  6. As that side cooks, place butter in the pan along with the crushed clove of garlic.
  7. As the butter melts, use a spoon to scoop the melted butter on to the top of the steaks, basting them as they cook.
  8. Remove steaks from pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 1 lb bag, multicolor fingerling potatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • rosemary, finely chopped

Preparation

  1. Parboil your potatoes so that they are not completely cooked through, but can be pierced by a fork.
  2. Slice potatoes in half, lengthwise.
  3. Pour a hearty glug of olive oil in a cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Lay your potatoes flat side down in the pan and season with salt and pepper.
  4. As potatoes start sizzling, give the pan a few flips to move potatoes around.
  5. Add garlic and rosemary to the pan and flip to mix ingredients.

Brown Butter Purée

Ingredients

  • 1 stick of butter
  • Olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, chopped

Preparation

  1. Place chopped onions and carrots in a small pot with a glug of olive oil. Place on high heat and allow vegetables to sweat.
  2. Put the whole stick of butter in a sauté pan over high heat, and, using a small whisk, move the butter around the pan as it melts, stirring constantly until the butter is completely melted and turns brown.
  3. Pour the brown butter into the pot with your sweated vegetables and use an immersion blender to pulse the ingredients to the desired consistency for your purée.

 

Thrifty Tip – Reconditioning and Seasoning Cast Iron

Recipe – Bacon-Wrapped Scallops

Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Braised Lentils and Baked Multi-Color Carrots

Braised Lentils

Ingredients

  • 2 cups lentils
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 Spanish onion
  • olive oil
  • 1 qt salted chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation

  1. Dice your onions and carrots and place in a cast iron pan over medium heat. Add olive oil to coat.
  2. Once vegetables start to sweat, add red wine vinegar (be careful, this will create some steam!).
  3. Add lentils and stir to coat.
  4. Add chicken broth and let simmer.
  5. Let simmer for 10 minutes, letting the lentils absorb the liquid.
  6. Taste to check seasoning and add salt and pepper as needed. If not all liquid is absorbed, allow to simmer for a few more minutes.

Bacon-Wrapped Scallops

Ingredients

  • 4 large scallops
  • ¼ lb. thick cut bacon
  • 1 stick butter
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 3 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 skewers

Preparation

  1. Slice the edges of the bacon, length-wise, so that it’s width is the same as your scallops.
  2. Take a skewer and pierce the end of a piece of bacon, followed by a scallop, then wrap the bacon around that scallop. Add your second scallop and use the remaining length of the bacon to wrap around that scallop, forming a figure-8 pattern. Tuck the end flap of bacon in between the two scallops to keep it secure.
  3. Warm a cast iron pan over high heat for 1 minute.
  4. Place your skewered scallops into the pan, with one of the bacon sides down, so that the bacon’s fat renders out.
  5. After five minutes, turn the skewers to the opposite bacon side to continue rendering. Only flip when the bacon comes free easily. If it sticks to the pan, the fat is still rendering.
  6. Cook for another 5 minutes, then turn so the scallops are face down in the pan.
  7. Cook for 5 minutes then flip again to the opposite side of the scallops. Add a tablespoon of butter to your pan along with a few sprigs of thyme. Rotate the pan to allow the butter to coat the entire pan, then tilt the pan so the butter pools. Using a spoon, scoop some butter onto the top of your scallops to further brown them.
  8. Once all sides are browned, remove from pan and serve.

Multi-Colored Carrots

Ingredients

  • 8 miniature multi-colored carrots
  • 3 sprigs of thyme, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil

Preparation

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Peel your carrots to remove the outermost layer of skin.
  3. Bring a pot of water to boil. Once boiling, add your carrots for 5 minutes. When your timer goes off, immediately submerge the carrots in an ice water bath to stop cooking.
  4. Toss your carrots with olive oil, salt and pepper, in an oven-proof pan. Place in oven for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Then slice your carrots length-wise and serve.
