Group considers loft resolution

first_imgStudent Senate discussed Saturday’s cancelation of PigTostal and the Office of Housing’s decision to remove lofts from St. Edward’s Hall at its meeting Wednesday. Student body president Brett Rocheleau said police forces told him a neighbor alerted them that a party that was planned did not have a permit. He said people must request these permits at least 15 days in advance, so the students organizing PigTostal could not get one in time for the event. “It was completely an isolated incident where basically the police force and the administration weren’t looking to cancel this party,” Rocheleau said. “They were working with it, they were expecting it to occur. So it’s not going to keep coming up every weekend, these types of incidents.” Senate considered a resolution asking the Office of Housing to reconsider its decision to remove all lofts from St. Edward’s Hall by the 2013-2014 academic year and replace them with modular furniture. Sean Long, St. Edward’s senator, said building the lofts is a First Year Orientation ritual for the residence hall. Rocheleau said the Office of Housing considers the lofts a safety issue because they block the spots in the ceilings that release water in the case of a fire. “By them knowing that this is occurring, they don’t feel right letting it slide,” he said. The group passed the resolution after debate. Senate passed a resolution requesting Auxiliary Operations to ask for student feedback about the Notre Dame ID card. It also passed resolutions asking for the creation of serve.nd.edu to centralize service opportunities and asking for revision of the Physical Education wellness program to initiate discussion about gender issues. Senate passed a resolution amending the student government elections process. The resolution stated, “For the purpose of petitions, the original signature of an undergraduate student shall be required to signify approval of the placement of a candidate or ticket on the ballot … In the event that an election proceeds to a runoff, all tickets in the runoff may have a nominal increase in their funding equivalent to 20 percent of the funding initially allocated for the primary election.” Campus Ministry Liaison Ellen Carroll introduced a resolution requesting the University begin each home football game with a prayer. She said the football team would be a starting point, but the practice would ideally extend to other varsity sports. “A lot of students who went to Catholic high schools, their sports games would start with a prayer,” Carroll said. “People have been talking about what would it be like to start Notre Dame football games with the same kind of thing.” If the prayer were instated, the exact wording would be determined through collaboration between various University offices, such as the Office of Campus Ministry and the Office of the President, Carroll said. Rocheleau said the resolution is not meant to impose religion on anyone, and the prayer would not profess belief in any specific faith. “It just says bless the players so no one gets hurt, no one gets harm, there’s fair play,” he said. “So I hope no one would ever feel that we’re imposing our religion on anyone … And we would make sure the prayer focuses on being generalized for all religions.” Senate tabled the prayer resolution and will discuss it again at the next meeting. Student body vice president Katie Rose reminded senators if someone feels a discriminatory incident was not handled correctly by his rector, he can report the incident to someone in a position of greater authority. “If you do have a problem, if you think you weren’t treated correctly or a matter wasn’t treated correctly, you can go to the head of the rectors, who is [Associate Vice President for Residential Life] Heather Russell,” she said.last_img read more

Second annual Women’s Investment Summit features female voices in finance

first_imgThe Notre Dame Institute for Global Investing (NDIGI) will hold the second annual Women’s Investment Summit (WIS) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, featuring 26 female speakers who will discuss their pathway to success in the investment field. The event is sponsored by BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, Premier, Six Street Partners and Wellington Management.“We’re trying to help more women in finance,” said Erin Bellissimo, managing director for the NDIGI. “What better way to tie into one of our key priorities, which is inclusion, with an investment conference that also can help the participants in career discernment and understanding the investment landscape? There will be a lot of educational learning that can go on to help with career choices. In addition, we’re going to be doing some case studies with very experiential learning.”To preface the WIS, the NDIGI held the final round of a stock pitch competition Thursday night. Senior Lauren Weetman, committee chair for the competition and the WIS, said there were originally 21 teams entered in the contest. Three panelists who were coming for the WIS judged the top three teams, giving those students the opportunity to get feedback on their work from people already in the field.“It’s pretty rare that students are able to manage $900,000 on their own, and we wanted to extend that opportunity across the entire campus,” she said. “We thought it worked really well with the WIS, where we’re focused on bringing more people into investing. The stock pitch competition is another way of furthering that mission — and, having these incredible people in for the WIS meant that we could have some amazing judges for the competition.”Some of the speakers at the WIS graduated from the University, some currently work for the University and some are not affiliated with Notre Dame at all. Each one, however, is deeply involved with the finance world and especially passionate about women’s role in investing, Bellissimo said.“Cathy Murphy, the president of personal investing at Fidelity, is not an alum, but she’s coming because she believes in this issue so deeply,” she said. “I think all of the participants are coming because they realize that women have to take the lead on trying to help solve this issue of not having a lot of retention of women in the industry.”Although every panelist is female, the event is geared toward all students at Notre Dame — male and female alike. Senior Claire Eilers, committee chair for speakers, said the event is open to students from schools throughout the University because it showcases the opportunities available in the investing world.“Last year, really only female students came, and that’s not the point of the summit; it’s supposed to be for men and women,” Eilers said. “This conference is targeting this huge discrepancy of women not being in these leadership roles in the investment managing industry, and everyone should come learn about that issue.”While this is only the second year the NDIGI has held the WIS, Bellissimo hopes it will continue to grow in the future. It provides a special opportunity for students to hear from women in the investing field, which is not always common, she said.“I’ve gone to quite a few investing conferences in my time here at Notre Dame, and it’s rare to even have one woman speak at them. The fact that it’s all women is something that’s kind of groundbreaking, and I think it’s great for Notre Dame,” Weetman said. “It’s hard to picture being an investor if you can’t see other women doing it.”Tags: finance, investing, women’s investment summitlast_img read more

Scholes: Rashford can learn from Van Nistelrooy

first_imgManchester United legend Paul Scholes has urged Marcus Rashford to study the game of Ruud van Nistelrooy. Rashford held informal talks with the agency’s representatives in Miami last weekend Scholes says no-one knew where the back of the net was like Van Nistelrooy. And Scholes reckons Rashford should take note. He said: “I played No 10 with Ruud for a season – and I loved it. He’s just a ruthless, ruthless goalscorer. He just lived for scoring goals. “Whenever he did score or didn’t score, the first thing he would do when we got on the team bus after the game was see if Thierry Henry scored. “And if Henry had scored he wouldn’t talk to anybody for the full trip home because he was so engrossed in being the leading goalscorer, not just at United but in the league, in the world, everywhere. “I loved the way Ruud finished as well. I played with some unbelievable centre forwards. You are thinking Cole, Dwight Yorke, Sheringham, Solskjaer. There are loads. read also:Rashford: Honour to work with Giggs and Rooney “There are some unbelievable goalscorers.

Ambris helps Volcanoes break losing streak

first_imgNORTH SOUND, Antigua, (CMC) – Sunil Ambris struck his fourth half-century in five innings as Windward Islands Volcanoes broke their three-game losing skid with a comfortable five-wicket victory over West Indies Under-19s here yesterday.Chasing an uncomplicated 208 for victory at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium, Volcanoes got home in the 41st over with the right-handed Ambris hitting an unbeaten 67.Opener Johnson Charles hit a typically breezy 41 while Shane Shillingford finished on 25 not out.Leg-spinner Mikyle Louis left his mark with two for 45.Matthew Patrick had earlier top-scored with 45 while fellow opener Shian Brathwaite got 42, as West Indies Under-19s rallied to 207 for nine off 50 overs.Seamer Kyle Mayers produced a superb spell of four for 38 from his 10 overs and former West Indies off-spinner Shane Shillingford was equally excellent with three for 22 from 10 overs.Sent in, the Under-19s flourished early on as Patrick and Brathwaite put on an excellent 88 off 91 balls for the first wicket.The left-handed Patrick faced 91 balls and counted two fours and a six while Brathwaite hit three fours and two sixes in a 60-ball knock.Once Brathwaite was bowled by Shillingford in the 23rd over, the Under-19s lost four wickets for 25 runs to slump to 113 for four in the 21st over.However, a 47-run fifth wicket partnership between Shamar Springer (29) and Kirstan Kallicharan (24) propped up the innings and ensured the Under-19s got beyond 200.In reply, Charles got Volcanoes off to a brisk start, adding 43 off 44 balls for the first wicket with Tyrone Theophile who made 19.The right-handed Charles, who stroked five fours and a six, also put on 33 for the second wicket with Devon Smith (12) before three wickets fell for 30 runs, to leave Volcanoes tentatively placed on 106 for four in the 23rd over.Ambris then came to his side’s aid, anchoring two partnerships to erase any doubt about the result. He faced 78 balls and counted six fours, putting on 62 for the fifth wicket with Kavem Hodge (19) and another 42 in an unbroken sixth wicket stand with Shillingford.Gaining a promotion in the order, Shillingford made it count, whacking a four and two sixes in a 16-ball cameo to deflate the Under-19s challenge.WINDIES UNDER-19sS Brathwaite b Shillingford 42M Patrick c wkp Ambris b Shillingford 45B Yadram c and b Sebastien 8+E Stewart c wkp Ambris b Shillingford 3S Springer c Sebastien b Mayers 29K Kallicharan c wkp Ambris b Mayers 24K Paul c wkp Ambris b Mayers 0J Bishop c and b Mayers 11M Louis not out 9J Spencer b Williams 2O McCoy not out 12Extras (w22) 22TOTAL (9 wkts, 50 overs) 207Fall of wickets: 1-88, 2-99, 3-107, 4-113, 5-160, 6-160, 7-177, 8-186, 9-189.Bowling: Matthew 5-0-25-0 (w4), Mayers 10-0-38-4 (w1), Williams 9-0-44-1 (w8), Hodge 6-1-38-0, Shillingford 10-1-22-3, Sebastien 10-0-40-1 (w9).VOLCANOESJ Charles c Bishop b Louis 41T Theophile b Paul 19D Smith c Springer b Bishop 12A Fletcher c wkp Stewart b Louis 13+S Ambris not out 67K Hodge c Brathwaite b Patrick 19S Shillingford not out 25Extras (b4, w7, nb3) 14TOTAL (5 wkts, 40.2 overs) 210Did not bat: *L Sebastien, K Mayers, K Williams, M Matthews,Fall of wickets: 1-43, 2-76, 3-82, 4-106, 5-168.Bowling: McCoy 3-0-22-0 (nb2), Paul 8-0-52-1 (w3, nb1), Bishop 10-1-36-1 (w2), Louis 9.2-0-45-2, Kallicharan 3-0-14-0, Yadram 2-0-14-0, Spencer 3-0-15-0, Patrick 2-0-8-1 (w1).Points: Volcanoes 4, Under-19s.last_img read more

Associated Press March 15, 2020 4:05 p.m.NCAA vice president of men’s basketball Dan Gavitt says brackets won’t be created for the NCAA men’s and women’s basketball tournaments that were canceled due to coronavirus concerns. Gavit says he made the decision and it was supported by basketball committees.“There is not an authentic way to produce tournament fields and brackets at this point without speculating,” Gavitt said Sunday, the day the men’s NCAA Tournament field had been scheduled to be announced. “And, that isn’t fair to the teams that would be positively or negatively impacted by manufacturing March Madness. More importantly, in light of this global health crisis, I believe we need to keep college basketball in perspective.”College basketball’s showcase was canceled on Thursday, leading to suggestions from coaches and athletic directors to release brackets for the event even though it won’t happen this year.“Players and coaches want to see their school name on the bracket,” Gavitt acknowledges. “Members of the media want to dissect matchups. Bracketologists want to compare the work of the committees versus what they’ve predicted. Fans are curious for those same reasons. All of us want something to fill the void we’re feeling. However, anything less than a credible process is inconsistent with the tradition of the NCAA basketball championships. … There will always be an asterisk next to the 2020 NCAA men’s and women’s basketball championships regardless if brackets are released.” Gremio players and coaching staff arrived at the Rio Grande do Sul state championship game wearing the masks. Authorities in Brazil have not ordered the cancellation or postponement of sporting events because of the corona pandemic but recommended that games are held without fans.

The deadline is June 30, then we’ll eventually see if we need to exceed that.”He adds, “We’ll propose to UEFA that they postpone the Euros.” The men’s top-tier Brazilian championship is scheduled to begin in April. The decision does not affect state championships currently being played. Some matches were held without any fans this weekend in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. São Paulo, Rio and other state soccer bodies are set to decide Monday on their course of action.___2:50 p.m.The New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority says all of the ski areas and venues that it manages will suspend operation at the close of business Sunday. When asked what his biggest baseball concern was, Daniels responded: “I don’t really have one to be honest with you, my head’s not even there. It might have been a few days ago, but it’s been pretty solely focused on making sure everyone’s got what they need, and everyone’s family is taken care of, and that we can get everybody home. We’re going to have plenty of time to figure out the baseball piece.”___6:24 p.m.Keeneland announced it will be closed to all non-essential guests starting Monday. Only essential employees, owners, trainers, veterinarians, blacksmiths and stable workers will be allowed into the track in Lexington, Kentucky.The track will set up screening checkpoints to monitor those seeking access and everyone will have their temperature taken. Only people with a temperature less than 100.5 degrees and showing no symptoms of the COVID-19 virus will be admitted. The screening will continue indefinitely. The Spanish league has suspended play due to the pandemic. Most people quickly recover from the global virus after experiencing only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.___More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sportslast_img read more
