Welcome to Day of the Mushroom!

Day of the Mushroom celebrates edible mushrooms, which can be eaten plain, be stuffed, or be used in salads, soups, and sauces. Culinary mushrooms first began being cultivated in the early eighteenth century, in France. They were known as Parisian mushrooms by those outside of the country, and the English exported them to America by the end of the nineteenth century. It was mainly these white and brown Agaricus bisporus mushrooms that were cultivated and sold, none more so than cremini mushrooms. Beginning in the 1940s, many other types of mushrooms began being cultivated on a wider basis.

The following are some common varieties of mushrooms eaten today, some being cultivated and some being found in the wild:

  • White button: most common edible mushroom, with 90% of mushrooms eaten in the United States being them; goes well with most ingredients; mild, but flavor intensifies when cooked.
  • Cremini: also known as crimini, baby bella, and brown; similar to white button but a bit more robust of a flavor.
  • Portobello: also known as portobella; really just a large cremini; can be up to six inches in diameter; meaty flavor—good veggie alternative for burgers; began gaining popularity in the 1990s.
  • Shiitake: also known as black forest; frilly umbrella caps; meaty texture when cooked; woodsy flavor.
  • Oyster: velvety texture; fluted caps; mild flavor.
  • Enoki: also known as enokitake or enoke; originally from Japan; long stems; tiny caps; grows in clusters; high in potassium and fiber; used raw as a garnish with soups, salads, and Asian-inspired dishes.
  • Morel: yellow and black varieties; wild mushroom; honeycomb crevices; nutty and earthy; commonly used in sauces.
  • Truffle: most expensive mushroom; wild mushroom, but there has been some cultivation; robust flavor; sometimes infused in olive oils.
  • Beech: crunchy texture; nutty flavor; usually cooked and used in stir fries.
  • Maitake.
  • Porcini: highly sought-after wild mushroom; meaty texture.
  • Chanterelle frilly; flavorful, with hints of apricot and almond.

Delaware transfer Jyáre Davis commits to Syracuse: ‘I felt drawn to them’ (PS; $; Waters)

For the almost the entirety of Jyáre Davis’ visit to Syracuse University over the weekend, it rained.

The rain poured, it drizzled and it misted, but it seemingly never stopped.

But Davis, a 6-foot-7 forward who played the last three seasons at the University of Delaware, still managed to tour the SU campus.

“It was super rainy and windy, so I didn’t walk around campus as much as we normally would,’’ he said, “but we drove around and I saw everything.’’

On Sunday morning, near the conclusion of the official visit, Davis was talking with Syracuse coach Adrian Autry in a film room inside the Carmelo K. Anthony Center. At that moment, Davis committed to play for the Orange.

As Davis and his family left the Melo Center, the skies brightened.

“We were leaving to get in the car and all of a sudden, it was sunny outside,’’ Davis said. “It was funny. We all made jokes about it.’’

Davis becomes the second player to commit to Syracuse through the NCAA’s transfer portal, joining former Colorado center Eddie Lampkin Jr.

Davis averaged 17.1 points and 7.5 rebounds for Delaware during the 2023-24 season.

Davis said he decided to commit to Syracuse after establishing a connection with Autry and the rest of the SU staff during his brief recruitment.

Syracuse Basketball: Top analyst details skill set of new 4-star commit Jyáre Davis (itlh; Adler)

Syracuse basketball picked up its second four-star prospect via the transfer portal on Monday night.

The Orange, with a pledge from Delaware senior forward Jyáre Davis, also landed some additional depth for the team's front court ahead of the 2024-25 season.

The 6-foot-7, 215-pound Davis, who took a visit to the Hill over the weekend, announced that he would transfer to the 'Cuse via his Instagram and X pages.

This is a big pick-up for the 'Cuse coaching staff, which has seen at least six players from its 2023-24 roster hit the portal this off-season, along with sophomore point guard Judah Mintz heading to this summer's NBA Draft.

Among those departures are sophomore power forward Maliq Brown and junior forward Benny Williams, who was dismissed from the program in early February.

As far as transfers into the Orange ahead of 2024-25, Davis joins Colorado senior center Eddie Lampkin Jr., who is also a four-star transfer prospect and recently said he would commit to the 'Cuse after taking a visit to Central New York.

Syracuse Basketball: 4-star, 5-star targets who are top visit candidates coming up (itlh; Adler)

With the 2023-24 season in high school hoops over and the AAU circuit gearing up over the spring and summer months, Syracuse basketball recruiting targets will start to think more heavily about upcoming visits, whether to the Orange or other suitors.

A little bit of context here. Prospects in the 2026 class can start taking official visits on August 1 of this year. Before that, on June 15, the contact period opens up for this cycle, meaning that college coaches can start initiating direct communication with rising high school juniors.

So after that contact period opens up, we could see more players in that cycle receive scholarship offers from the 'Cuse coaching staff, among other college squads. Now, 2026 players have already been able to take unofficial visits, while 2025 prospects could go on unofficial or official visits.

Where Do Syracuse's Players (Current and Former) Land in Portal Rankings? (; Frank)

The portal is buzzing again. Players are going in and out, committing to schools, taking visits, narrowing their lists, and all the fun stuff. So, let’s take a look at the Syracuse angle of which players that left after this season are showing up in portal rankings, along with where SU commits Eddie Lampkin and Jyare Davis fall as well compared to those guys.


Lampkin is the first Syracuse player to appear on this list at 79th, with Jeff Borzello writing: “After spending three seasons at TCU, Lampkin left for Colorado and enjoyed his best season yet. He averaged 10.6 points and 7.0 rebounds, and he put up 15.7 points and 6.3 rebounds in three NCAA tournament games.”

Davis is a few spots down the board at 93rd: “Broke out on the national scene with 17 points and six rebounds against Villanova in the 2022 NCAA tournament. Davis averaged 17.1 points and 7.5 boards, earning second-team All-CAA honors.”

The other player to make a name on the list is Maliq Brown (who has been rumored to Duke) at 96th, 17 spots behind the new Orange center: “Brown certainly put impressive performances on tape during the final stretch of the season, notching three double-doubles and averaging 11.8 points, 9.6 boards and 3.0 assists in the final five games. Put up 9.5 points and 7.2 boards on the season.”


Lampkin appears first again here at 75th, with a substantial writeup from Sam Vecenie, one of the best basketball analysts out there:

“I haven’t been one of Lampkin’s biggest fans for many of the reasons we saw in Colorado’s Round of 32 loss to Marquette, when the Golden Eagles repeatedly attacked him in ball screens. Lampkin’s not a good rim protector in drop coverage and he’s not mobile enough to switch.

One way to mitigate his defensive issues is to deploy him in a zone, where he could take up space inside and use his size and length at the basket. The Orange used much less zone in Red Autry’s first season than they did under Jim Boeheim — just 20 percent of their defensive possessions, per Synergy. Syracuse was quite poor on defense last season, finishing 13th in the ACC in defensive rating while giving up 111 points per 100 possessions, per KenPom. So perhaps Lampkin’s recruitment signals a desire to go back to more zone next season.

If the Orange plan to use a similar amount of man-to-man again next season, I do not think Lampkin will be a particularly successful addition. But Lampkin is undeniably skilled on offense and will give the team a real post presence, something it lacked this season following the departure of Jesse Edwards.”

Former Syracuse forward Maliq Brown to visit ACC program this week (PS; $; Waters)

The Syracuse University men’s basketball team could have a former player show up on its ACC schedule next season.

Maliq Brown, who entered his name in the transfer portal on April 1 after playing two seasons at Syracuse, will visit Duke Wednesday through Friday. On3 was first to report the news.

Brown, a 6-foot-8, 220-pound sophomore, averaged 9.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.2 steals per game this season for the Orange. He also led the ACC in steals with 71 in 32 games. Brown was named to the ACC’s All-Defensive Team and was fourth in the voting for the conference’s Defensive Player of the Year award.

Brown spent the 2023-24 season at the center position. He began the season as the primary back-up to Naheem McLeod, a 7-foot-4 transfer from Florida State, who suffered a foot injury 14 games into the season. The injury required surgery, which forced McLeod to miss the remainder of the season. Brown started the last 18 games of the year at center.

He scored a career-high 26 points against Duke last season.

Brown would bring experience and an efficient offensive game (69.8% field goal percentage) to the Blue Devils but would have some stiff competition to get on the court. Duke is bringing in the No. 3 recruit at center (Khaman Maluach), the No. 1 recruit at power forward (Cooper Flagg) and the No. 12 recruit at small forward (Isaiah Evans).

Syracuse University student’s family gives $2.15 million for new campus center (PS; $; Boyer)

A Syracuse University student’s father and aunt are pledging $2.15 million to build a new student center at the College of Engineering and Computer Science.

Denver-based engineering firm owner Marco Campos and his sister, Deanna Campos-Miller, are making the gift through their Campos Foundation, which they established to help encourage students pursuing science, technology, engineering and math careers, the school announced last week.

Campos was inspired to make the gift following a recent visit to the SU campus, where his son is a junior in the College of Visual and Performing Arts. Campos was inspired to pursue engineering after taking part in a bridge program in high school, which lead him to the University of Colorado. After establishing his own engineering firm and growing it into an international business, he made a similar gift to his alma mater.

SU said the student center at the engineering and computer science school will includes programs to attract underrepresented students to the college and support enrolled students. SU has a goal to grow enrollment and faculty at the school by 50% by 2028.

“The Campos Student Center will provide dedicated space for our students with a home for collaboration, community and access to resources that maximize their success,” ECS Dean J. Cole Smith said in a news release. “This space will facilitate club activities that enhance the experience of our diverse student body. More than that, it will be a home on campus that is inviting and welcoming to all.”

Micron is hiring: See the salary ranges for about 2 dozen positions for Clay plant (PS; $: Coin)

Micron Technology has started posting ads for high-paying jobs long before ground has been broken at the planned semiconductor plant in Clay.

More than 20 positions that would be based in Clay are advertised on Micron’s website. The jobs include environmental engineer, electrical engineer, construction manager, wastewater engineer, and health and safety manager.

Micron declined to provide detailed information about when those jobs might be filled and where those new employees would work before the first fabrication plant, or fab, opens in Clay. That opening is estimated to happen in 2029.

“We recently started posting select positions to support construction and operations in Clay,” the company said in a prepared statement. “Micron expects to start substantial hiring in the second half of 2025 and will scale in line with industry demand.”

All of the jobs posted so far require bachelor’s degrees. Most require three to 10 years of experience in relevant fields and pay six figures at the top end of the salary range.

The lowest-paid Clay position advertised now is construction document controller, which would pay $57,000 to $96,000. The highest-paid position is senior manager/director of environmental health and safety, with a salary range of $114,000 to $256,000. (See full list below.)

Micron said where a new hire falls in the position’s salary range depends upon “work location and additional job-related factors, including knowledge, skills, experience, tenure and relevant education or training.”

Dario Nardella, Mayor of Florence, Italy, to Address Syracuse University Graduates During 2024 Commencement (; Staff)

The Mayor of Florence, Italy, Dario Nardella, will deliver Syracuse University’s 2024 Commencement address Sunday, May 12, in the JMA Wireless Dome. The ceremony will begin at 9:30 a.m.

Nardella was first elected in 2014 and is currently serving his second term as mayor of the Renaissance city. He also serves as Special Rapporteur for Ukraine at the European Union (EU) Committee of the Regions and secretary general of Eurocities, a nonprofit organization made up of over 200 large cities, representing more than 150 million people across 38 countries, from within and outside the EU. He previously served as its president from 2020 to 2023.

Nardella’s city shares a deep connection with the University, as it is home to the Daniel and Gayle D’Aniello Syracuse University Program in Florence. The Syracuse Abroad program, at the historic Villa Rossa, has welcomed tens of thousands of Syracuse students for more than 60 years.

“The City of Florence has hosted generations of Syracuse University students, and we are delighted to welcome Mayor Nardella to our campus to address the Class of 2024,” says Chancellor Kent Syverud. “His leadership of such a globally significant artistic, cultural and historical city, along with his collaboration with city leaders across Europe, will make for an inspired Commencement message to our graduating students, their families and the University community.”

Nardella’s visit is a continuation of the affinity between Syracuse University and Florence and its people.

“It’s always an honor and a privilege when one is called to address young people. But, we should always be aware that with honor and privilege also comes responsibility, more so, when the recipients are young professionals who will one day be our future leading class,” Nardella says. “I’m humbled and overwhelmed with gratitude and joy. Thank you for this opportunity and thank you, Syracuse University and Daniel and Gayle D’Aniello Syracuse University Program in Florence for your long-lasting commitment to the city of Florence, to the values it embodies and to the community I serve.”

Nardella graduated with a law degree with first class-honours at the University of Florence, where he also earned a Ph.D. in public law, construction and environmental law. He is also a graduate in violin from the Conservatorium Cherubini in Florence.

A professor at the University of Florence where he teaches Cultural Heritage Law, Nardella started his political career in 2004 when he was elected councilman for the City of Florence in the Democratic Party. He served as legal advisor to the Minister of Institutional Reforms during Romano Prodi’s premiership (2006-2008). In 2008, he was selected by the U.S. State Department to attend the International Visitor Leadership Program. In 2009, he was once again elected to the Florence City Council and appointed vice mayor.
