Group praises ACE, Career Center

first_imgStudent Senate heard about opportunities with Notre Dame’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) program and passed resolutions about excused absences at Wednesday night’s meeting. Sarah Greene, from the ACE program, spoke about her experience teaching high school English. “I was an English major here at Notre Dame and went on to teach high school English in Mobile, Ala., for the ACE program,” Greene said.  “ACE is a great option for teaching since it’s just two years and includes a Master of Education degree. Plus it prepares students well for teaching in Catholic schools.” Greene saw this as an excellent opportunity for members of Senate because of their interest in leadership. “Teaching really cultivated my own leadership skills, and I know that’s something you’ve been working to develop,” Greene said. “I encourage you to share those gifts, give them back to students in need. I just wanted to come and thank you for the service you do and let you know that we are located in Carole Sandner Hall. We have ample study space and plenty of smiling faces to welcome you.’ After thanking Greene for her information, the group invited sophomore Max Brown from the department of academic affairs to introduce two resolutions dealing with excused absence policies. “The first issue we wanted to tackle is that regarding professional development,” Brown said. “A lot of times you have to interview for post-graduate opportunities or internships and the Career Center can help students get those excused absences. There are a lot of ways to get one for an interview, but essentially all of those excused absences are only for seniors. Specifically in today’s environment it is really important for undergrads to get those opportunities too.” The group unanimously voted in favor of this resolution, and Brown expressed his approval. “I’m really glad you passed that last resolution. I think that it is really important for a lot of us in this room,” Brown said. Secondly, Brown introduced a resolution concerning the class absence policy regarding death. “Currently, when a loved one passes away it is very difficult to get an excused absence unless they are part of an immediate family,” Brown said. “That doesn’t seem to fit the bill for instances that demonstrate extenuating circumstances where the University should allow students to get excused absences. So we decided to add the ambiguous term ‘loved one’ to this section of du Lac.” Class of 2015 president Tim Scanlon asked how they came up with the specific addition of the term “loved one” in this resolution. “We really thought a lot about how to define this. There are a lot of circumstances and it’s hard to define and name them all.  We are using ‘loved one’ so that the definition is at the discretion of the administration,” Brown said. “What it allows the administrators to do is to give students an excused absence even when the death is not an immediate family member but still someone very close. Also, they feel that they can have the power to ensure that this policy is not being abused.” Every Senate member also voted in favor of the resolution. Student body vice president Katie Rose updated the group on last week’s discussion regarding the Career Center. “After our discussion last week I had two very good meetings with some people at the Career Center,” Rose said. “Both were ridiculously productive, and a lot of the issues you brought up are going to be addressed. Thank you for your feedback; they were very appreciative.” Chief of staff Katie Baker expressed her gratitude for the senators who worked for the Department of Gender Studies. “Thank you for all your hard work last week during sexual assault awareness week,” Baker said. “The Time to Heal dinner was really amazing.  I hope you guys were touched by it as much as we were.”last_img read more

Trump, Taliban political chief speak as Afghan violence rises

first_imgUS President Donald Trump made the surprise announcement Tuesday that he’d had a “very good” talk with the Taliban political chief on the Afghan peace process, despite an eruption of violence marring a brief calm in the country.The insurgents were the first to give news of the highly unusual phone call between Trump and former Taliban fighter Mullah Baradar, which the insurgents said lasted 35 minutes.Trump confirmed the call later to reporters in Washington. But asked if he had held previous, undisclosed talks with Baradar, Trump replied: “I don’t want to say.” “We had a very good conversation with the leader of the Taliban today,” Trump said in Washington.”The relationship is very good that I have with the mullah. We had a good long conversation today and you know, they want to cease the violence, they’d like to cease violence also.”However, the call held at around 1440 GMT Tuesday came just a day after the militants ended a partial truce meant to be the first step in a wider peace deal under a US-Taliban agreement signed Saturday.The unrest raised questions over the future of talks between the insurgents and the US-backed Afghan government in Kabul that are set to begin March 10. Topics : Trump has touted the peace agreement as a way to end the bloody, nearly two decades US military presence in Afghanistan — right in time for his November reelection bid.Under the terms of the deal, US and other foreign forces will quit Afghanistan within 14 months, subject to Taliban security guarantees and a pledge by the insurgents to hold talks with the national government in Kabul.The agreement also includes a commitment to exchange 5,000 Taliban prisoners held by the Afghan government in return for 1,000 captives — something the militants have cited as a prerequisite for talks but which President Ashraf Ghani has refused to do before negotiations start.Baradar called on Trump to “not allow anyone to take actions that violate the terms of the agreement thus embroiling you even further in this prolonged war”, according to the Taliban transcript.Trump sounded sympathetic to the Taliban message, saying “they are looking to get this ended, and we’re looking to get it ended, I think we all have a very common interest.”He said the Kabul government may be “reluctant” to pursue the peace deal, saying “they’ve done very well with the United States for many years — far beyond military if you look at all the money that we spent in Afghanistan.”center_img Holding nation ‘hostage?’ Ghani’s government last week sent a delegation to Qatar to open “initial contacts” with the insurgents, but Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen on Tuesday said the militants would not meet Kabul’s representatives except to discuss the release of their captives.Apparent differences between the Doha agreement and a separate joint US-Afghan declaration made in Afghanistan underline the obstacles facing negotiators.The US-Taliban deal committed to the release of prisoners while the Kabul document only required both sides to determine “the feasibility of releasing” captives.In a statement, the UN’s Afghanistan mission called for “continued reduced violence to maintain & enhance an environment conducive to the start of intra-Afghan negotiations”.”After the US-Taliban deal, it is illogical to fight. It is time for peace,” said Naqibullah, a 40-year-old government employee in Kabul, who uses only one name.”The Taliban can’t take the whole nation hostage.” Dozens of attacksFollowing Saturday’s deal signing, the Taliban have been publicly claiming “victory” over the US and on Monday they announced an end to the partial truce, resuming their attacks on Afghan national forces.Since Monday, the Taliban conducted 33 attacks in 16 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces, interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said. “As a result, six civilians were killed and 14 wounded. Eight enemy were also killed, 15 wounded,” he said on Twitter. Two soldiers were killed in one of the attacks in southern Kandahar province, a government statement said. An attack in Logar province near Kabul killed five security forces, the provincial governor’s spokesman Didar Lawang told AFP.The halt to the limited truce, which began on February 22, ended what was a welcome reprieve for ordinary Afghans who have born the brunt of the deadly violence. Kabul-based analyst Ahmad Saeedi told AFP the uptick in attacks reflected the insurgents’ belief that “they have to keep the battlefield hot to be able to win on the negotiating table, as they did with the Americans.” last_img read more

Children ignored in gay marriage debate

first_imgNewsTalk ZB 17 April 2013 One of the senior MPs who will tonight vote against legalising gay marriage says there has not been enough debate around the rights of children. Northcote MP Jonathan Coleman says every child deserves a loving mother and a loving father. Labour MP Louisa Wall’s Marriage Amendment Bill is expected to easily pass through parliament tonight as MPs vote with their consciences. Dr Coleman does not think it’s an equality issue. “My point is there hasn’t been a full discussion around the rights of children in this debate. “So my personal view is that in an ideal world each child would have a loving mother and father. That hasn’t really been highlighted in the debate.” Deputy Prime Minister Bill English will also be voting against the Marriage Amendment Bill. He says the current arrangements work satisfactorily. “It does seem a bit odd that an institution that is becoming much less used and much less popular has now become the bench mark for equal treatment of people. “People can have equal treatment they get registered by the state with their relationship, we’ve got plenty of room for a range of arrangements.”http://nz.news.yahoo.com/a/-/top-stories/16774088/children-ignored-in-gay-marriage-debate/last_img read more

SoKor reports 17 new cases, fewest in month

first_imgSEOUL – South Korea has reported 17 new cases of COVID-19, the first time its daily jump came down to the teens in nearly a month, as health authorities scramble to contain a resurgence of the virus centered around the greater capital area. The figures released by the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention yesterday brought the national caseload to 12,438 cases, including 280 deaths. The month-long rise of infections in the densely populated capital area have raised concerns that the country is sleepwalking into another major crisis after containing its first wave centered around the southeastern city of Daegu. (AP) The country over the past two weeks has been reporting 40 to 50 new cases per day amid increased public activity and eased attitudes on social distancing. There has also been an uptick in imported cases, mostly from passengers arriving from southwest Asia, prompting authorities to halt providing new visas for travelers from Pakistan and Bangladesh.center_img Twelve of the new cases reported yesterday were from the Seoul metropolitan area where authorities have struggled to keep track of hundreds of transmissions linked to nightspots, restaurants, church gatherings, and low-income workers such as door-to-door salespeople and warehouse employees who couldn’t afford to stay home.

Andy Murray wins first ATP tourney since hip surgery

first_imgRelatedPosts Revised ATP calendar not safe for players, says Murray French Open pushed back one week, ATP and WTA announce August resumption ATP, WTA Tours extend shutdowns till July Andy Murray was in tears after winning his first ATP tournament since recovering from hip surgery, beating Stan Wawrinka in the final of the European Open.The former world number one has had an injury ravaged few years and had not tasted success on tour since 2017, but came from a set down to beat the Swiss in Antwerp.Sir Andy, 32, lost 6-3 in the first set, but battled back to win the second 6-4 and the third by the same margin.It was a remarkable comeback for Murray in more ways than one, having revealed plans to retire earlier this year because of a “severely damaged” hip that had been causing him pain “for a number of years”.He underwent an operation in January in what was seen as a final throw of the dice to save his career, and he made a stunning return to tennis by winning the doubles at Queen’s alongside Feliciano Lopez in June.But success over three-time Grand Slam winner Wawrinka was the greatest milestone yet of his comeback, and the tears soon flowed as the significance of his achievement dawned on him.Wawrinka was twice a break ahead in the third set, but Murray dug in and hit back immediately both times before saving two more break points at 4-4 to leave Wawrinka serving to stay in the match.Tags: ATPEuropean Openlast_img read more

Blues battle back to beat Saints

first_img Rodriguez punished a dreadful back-pass by Michael Essien and Saints took a deserved interval lead after Artur Boruc made a wonderful save to deny Fernando Torres. Essien had a first Premier League start since May 2012 to forget and was replaced at half-time by Ba, who hit the post from the corner which led to Cahill heading in an equaliser. Boruc went off with a hand injury and his replacement Paulo Gazzaniga was beaten by Terry’s header as Chelsea took a lead they would not relinquish, with Ba adding a late third. Chelsea had endured a mixed week following the 3-0 win at West Ham with qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League secured despite losing at Basle. As impressive as Southampton were at the start, the Blues began their first of nine December games woefully before recovering by out-muscling their opponents in the manner of Mourinho teams of yesteryear. And now the second-placed Blues are well positioned in a week which sees further tests against Sunderland and Stoke. Never before has Mourinho suffered a league loss at Stamford Bridge, relying on hard work and, at times, luck. Chelsea needed a controversial last-gasp penalty to draw with West Brom in the most recent home match. That was the only time Chelsea had dropped points at home this season, but within seconds of their seventh home game beginning they were behind. Nathaniel Clyne’s ball down the right fell for Essien, who hooked it hopefully backwards over the head of Cahill and Rodriguez coolly side-footed in. There was jubilation from Mauricio Pochettino and the visiting bench, knowing Southampton had won all six previous games in which they had opened the scoring this season. Torres tried to spark a revival, surging into the area before tripping under the attentions of Jose Fonte as he prepared to shoot. Boruc saved an Oscar shot before James Ward-Prowse curled a free-kick wide for Saints, as the visitors gave as good as they got. Essien was off the pace as Saints enjoyed midfield supremacy and the Chelsea man was booked for diving after losing the ball next to Morgan Schneiderlin in his own half. Torres’ persistence down the right almost paid off when he crossed for Oscar, whose header was saved by Boruc before the Brazil attacking midfielder went off injured, with Frank Lampard coming on. Boruc was at full stretch to deny Torres as the striker met Eden Hazard’s cross and Lampard was unable to reach the follow up as Southampton cleared and reached the break with their lead intact. Mourinho had seen enough and retreated from his technical area furious at his team’s first-half display before referee Michael Oliver had blown for the break. Essien, who spent last season with Mourinho at Real Madrid and was named ‘The Wall’ by the man he calls ‘Daddy’, did not return for the second half as Ba joined Torres up front. A Lampard free-kick had Boruc back-pedalling and the goalkeeper palmed the ball over, but from the resulting corner the Pole was beaten and Chelsea were level. Mata’s set-piece found Branislav Ivanovic, whose header was redirected by Ba on to the post. The ball ricocheted back, deceiving Boruc, and Cahill headed the ball in. There was a lengthy pause following the goal as Boruc went off. Gazzaniga’s first act was to retrieve the ball from his net as Lampard returned a half-cleared corner to Mata and Terry rose highest to head into the Southampton net. Chelsea were still well below their best despite squeezing Southampton into submission. Ba did well to meet Cesar Azpilicueta’s lofted pass behind Fonte, but dragged his shot wide with the goal gaping. Torres was replaced by John Obi Mikel for the final few minutes as Mourinho sought further defensive security. After Dani Osvaldo twice shot off target, Chelsea claimed a third. Ramires kept possession on Chelsea’s left before lofting a ball over for Ba to tuck in his first Premier League goal of the season and only the fourth by a Chelsea striker. Chelsea bounced back from conceding a Jay Rodriguez goal after 13 seconds to beat Southampton 3-1 and move within four points of Barclays Premier League leaders Arsenal. Goals from Gary Cahill, John Terry and substitute Demba Ba earned Chelsea’s sixth home win from seven games this season to extend Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten Premier League record at Stamford Bridge to 67 games. Mourinho was fuming with his team at times but would have been pleased with the response to the early blow. Press Associationlast_img read more
