Key narcolepsy–influenza vaccine findings retracted

Posted on by

first_imgFollowing the 2009 swine flu pandemic, roughly one out of 15,000 children in Europe who received the H1N1 vaccine called Pandemrix developed narcolepsy, a disorder that causes irresistible sleepiness. A leading explanation for the rash of narcolepsy cases is that a fragment of the H1N1 virus used to produce Pandemrix may have triggered an autoimmune reaction in some vulnerable children. Researchers have struggled to find evidence for that hypothesis, however. This week, the picture grew murkier when Stanford University researchers retracted a paper in Science Translational Medicine, published 18 December 2013, that was hailed as the first evidence to support the immunological hypothesis. After several attempts, scientists say they are unable to replicate a key part of the experiment.For more, see the full story in this week’s issue of Science.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more

Deontay Wilder KOs Dominic Breazeale in 1st round to defend heavyweight belt

Posted on by

first_imgDeontay Wilder, right, knocks down Dominic Breazeale during the first round of the WBC heavyweight championship boxing match Saturday, May 18, 2019, in New York. Wilder won in the first round. (AP Photo/Frank Franklin II)NEW YORK — Deontay Wilder believes they are coming, the mega matchup with Anthony Joshua and the rematch with Tyson Fury.Until then, he moved onto some business with Dominic Breazeale.ADVERTISEMENT DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew He looked like a picture of peace as he carried his young daughter into the arena about three hours earlier, but was back to making his case as boxing’s baddest man once the fighting started.In the other title fight on the card, Gary Russell Jr. (30-1, 18 KOs) defended his piece of the featherweight title when the referee stopped his bout with Kiko Martinez (39-9-2) late in the fifth round on the advice of the ringside doctor because of a bad cut over the challenger’s left eye.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Duterte wants probe of SEA Games mess Warriors rout Blazers for 3-0 lead in West finals Catholic schools seek legislated pay hike, too An immediate rematch was expected before Fury surprisingly went another route.“I understand what Tyson Fury did. When you get dropped on the canvas like that, I understand you have to get yourself back together,” Wilder said. “But the rematch will happen, like all these other fights will happen. The great thing is all these fights are in discussion. The big fights will happen.”And Wilder won’t need any more pounds as long as he still has one of the most feared right hands in boxing.Breazeale had downplayed Wilder’s power, saying heavyweights are supposed to hit hard. But he should certainly be a believer now.He was challenging for a heavyweight title for the second time, having been stopped by Joshua in the seventh round three years ago in Britain. He said he had learned and grown from that fight, but there’s nothing that could have prepared him for what faced in landing just two punches before 13,181 fans in Brooklyn.“This was a situation where he landed the big right hand before I did,” Breazeale said. “I thought I was going to come on in the later rounds. I’ll be back and go for the heavyweight title again.”Wilder and Joshua was the fight just about everyone in boxing would prefer to see, but so far it’s been all talk without seriously moving close to action.Joshua will be making his U.S. debut at nearby Madison Square Garden on June 1, so perhaps they could try again afterward to negotiate a bout.Wilder easily put aside the letdown of not fighting Joshua or Fury again because of his anger toward Breazeale over an altercation involving family members at an Alabama hotel in 2017. He went as far as to tout his ability to kill a man in the ring, remarks for which WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman said would be addressed by the organization in a hearing.Wilder was coming off tough tests in his last two bouts, getting rocked by Luis Ortiz in their March 2018 fight in this arena before stopping the Cuban in the 10th round, and needing a knockdown in the final round to secure the draw with Fury.

He wanted a rematch with Fury or a unification match with fellow champion Joshua, but settled for a mandatory defense of his WBC title when those couldn’t be made.He ended it quickly, finishing off Breazeale (20-2) after being pushed hard in each of his last two fights.Wilder weighed in at a little more than 223 pounds, a gain from the 209 he was at for the Fury fight, but still well below the 245 he set as a goal after feeling he was too small in that bout, in which he dropped Fury with a huge combination in the 12th round but had to settle for the draw when the challenger was able to get up and finish the fight.ADVERTISEMENT Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess He took care of it quickly and emphatically.Wilder got back into the win column Saturday night, knocking out Breazeale with an overpowering right hand in the first round to defend his heavyweight title.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics“There’s been a lot of animosity and a lot of words that were said and it just came out of me tonight,” Wilder said.Wilder hurt Breazeale with a right to the head early in their fight at Barclays Center, but the challenger had recovered from that early onslaught. But there was no coming back from the right later in the round that immediately dropped Breazeale, who was trying to get up as referee Harvey Dock counted him out at 2:17 of the round.

Cris Carter Shares Troubling Details About Urban Meyer

Posted on by

first_imgjim harbaugh overratedCris Carter, a former Ohio State wide receiver and a close friend of Urban Meyer, shared some troubling details about the head coach’s health situation while discussing his retirement today.The former NFL wide receiver, who was coached by Meyer at Ohio State, opened up about the head coach’s situation on FOX Sports 1 today.Carter revealed that he thought Meyer shouldn’t have been coaching over the last month of the season. Meyer’s health situation was apparently a serious one.”He wants to coach, but physically he can’t. He can’t do this anymore. Urban Meyer is a good man, and he’s had a tremendous impact on young people.”@criscarter80 on his former WR coach & friend to step down at Ohio State pic.twitter.com/hlqO0eVU9j— First Things First (@FTFonFS1) December 4, 2018Carter went further on Meyer and his issues:“Urban’s a very, very close friend of mine…. His biggest problem is he wants to coach, but physically he can’t coach. He can’t do this anymore.I think it’s been well-documented, as far as the cyst on his brain. When he gets agitated, upset… when he gets in coaching mode, it becomes very to almost impossible for him to coach because the cyst begins to leak fluid, which leads to – not a migraine headache, but a splitting headache.When we saw him double over on the sideline, that was not because of anything else but the cyst and it rupturing. There’s a few things potentially that he could do, he could rest…. The second one is to have a procedure done where they could relieve the pressure [from] the procedure he had done a couple of years ago, but you’re opening up the brain – and that’s not coming with a great deal of encouragement by the specialist who is working on him.And the third thing is what we saw today, was Urban Meyer resigning as the coach at Ohio State.”He continued:“I refused to go to the Michigan game. I went to the Big Ten Championship, and that’s because Urban wanted me there. I thought something else was going to happen on the sideline before we were able to get to this day. Urban Meyer, he really can’t coach. He shouldn’t be coaching, and I would argue that he shouldn’t have been coaching the last month.”Meyer’s final game will come on New Year’s Day. Ohio State is taking on Washington in the Rose Bowl.last_img read more

Delhi Capitals star Rishabh Pant surpasses Kumar Sangakkara to set new IPL record

Posted on by

first_img India Today Web Desk New DelhiApril 29, 2019UPDATED: April 29, 2019 13:22 IST IPL 2019: Rishabh Pant has become the first wicketkeeper to claim 20 dismissals in an IPL season ( Courtesy by BCCI)HIGHLIGHTSRishabh Pant has claimed 20 dismissals in IPL 2019No wicketkeeper has effected more dismissals in a single IPL seasonKumar Sangakkara had claimed 19 dismissals in IPL 2011Delhi Capitals star Rishabh Pant became the first-ever wicketkeeper in a T20 tournament to effect 20 dismissals on Sunday when he picked up two catches in their table-topping win over Royal Challengers Bangalore.With 15 catches and five stumpings in 12 matches, Rishabh Pant also set the record for most dismissals by a wicketkeeper in an IPL season. The record was previously held by Sri Lanka great Kumar Sangakkara who came up with 19 dismissals for the now-defunct Deccan Chargers in 2011.Recently, Bangladesh wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan also claimed 19 dismissals in Bangladesh Premier League 2019.Rishabh Pant failed to trouble the scorers with the bat after walking in to bat at No. 4 at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Sunday but the young wicketkeeper was impressive behind the wickets even as the entire Delhi team were tidy on the field.Pant took a couple of stunning catches of Heinrich Klaasen and Gurkeerat Singh as DC bowlers restricted RCB to 171 while defending a 188-run target. Rishabh Pant took a blinder to dismiss Heinrich Klaasen in DC’s win over RCB on Sunday ( Courtesy by BCCI)Pant, the wicketkeeper, may have been tagged as a work-in-progress by a few former cricketers but that hasn’t stopped the Delhi star from breaking wicketkeeping records.In India’s tour of Australia earlier this year, Pant became the first wicketkeeper from India to effect 20 dismissals in a Test series.Pant has buried the disappointment of the World Cup selection snub and is completely focussed on his role with the Delhi Capitals.”I was disappointed. Obviously, because every player dreams of representing India and playing a World Cup for the country is even more special. I was disappointed but as a cricketer and as a professional, I know that there’s no point in being disappointed. I try to move on. I am focused on performing in the opportunities that I get. That’s about it,” Pant had told Sports Tak earlier this month.advertisement”World Cup selection, as I said, was disappointing. But if I keep thinking about it and don’t try to improve and move on, it makes things more difficult for me. I am seeing the positive side.”I am looking at what can be done now. I have a few IPL matches remaining. I am looking to perform in those matches. Only if you perform well, as a person, you can be confident”.The Ricky Ponting-coached team qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2012 after their win over RCB on Sunday. DC are currently are sitting on top of the table with 16 points from 12 matches and a better Net Run Rate than Chennai Super Kings.Also Read | Have moved on from World Cup disappointment, focused on IPL: Rishabh PantAlso Read | Try to make sure no back-biting in KKR camp, says Dinesh KarthikAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

IPL 2019: Felt like hell, says Shreyas Iyer after DC beat SRH in tense Eliminator

Posted on by

first_img Ishant Sharma I. Sharma Super Over 0 Match Ended Indian Premier League, 2019 0 Rajarshi Gupta VisakhapatnamMay 9, 2019UPDATED: May 9, 2019 08:43 IST Delhi Capitals produced yet another clinical performance in the Eliminator against Sunrisers Hyderabad (Courtesy by BCCI)HIGHLIGHTSShreyas Iyer said he was a nervous man as Delhi Capitals beat SRH in a thriller in Vizag on WednesdayIyer said it felt like hell as DC almost made a mess of their 163-run chase in the EliminatorDC are now on course for their maiden IPL final but they will need to beat CSK in Qualifier 2 on FridayDelhi Capitals held their nerves to seal a thrilling 2-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 2019 Indian Premier League Eliminator in Vizag and kept alive their hopes of a maiden IPL final. DC will now take on defending champions Chennai Super Kings but it was not easy in a tense clash against SRH.Chasing 163, Delhi Capitals were cruising thanks to Prithvi Shaw’s sensational 56. However, Khaleel Ahmed and Rashid Khan struck twice in an over each to bring Sunrisers Hyderabad back in the game. Rishabh Pant did what he has done so often for DC – he hit 5 sixes to almost close it for his team.However, it looked like there was a twist in the tale when Rishabh Pant fell for a 21-ball 49. DC still needed 5 from 11 and had only 3 wickets left. Khaleel Ahmed bowled a brilliant last over and made it difficult for the Capitals.Amit Mishra out obstructing the field when he changed his direction while running down to the striker’s end for a quick single as Khaleel attempted to hit the stumps. Keemo Paul kept his cool to take Delhi home but Shreyas Iyer admitted he endured some nervous moments sitting in the dug-out.”I can’t express my emotions. I was sitting and those last two overs were like a hell,” Iyer told the host broadcaster after DC moved to Qualifier 2. “It felt like I have been sitting and watching for years when it came to the last two years.”Shreyas Iyer had reasons to feel nervous. Earlier in the season, they were cruising to victory against Kings XI Punjab before Sam Curran derailed Delhi Capitals with a hat-trick. Against Kolkata Knight Riders, Prithvi Shaw had set it up nicely with a 99 but late collapse meant the game went to the Super Over.advertisementBut on Wednesday, Rishabh Pant was determined to see Delhi through and he kept his calm to hit 5 sixes in a match-winning effort.It was really down to two of the youngest talents in Indian cricket. Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant have already played for India and have been brilliant for Delhi Capitals in the IPL. Shreyas Iyer said it was best to leave the two alone and let them play their natural game.”I personally feel they are the sort of batsmen who you can’t control and let them play on their own. If you try to stop players like Rishabh and Prithvi, it may not work. If they go on with the flow, they can win you games.”Delhi Capitals will face defending champions Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 2 in Vizag on Friday. The winner will meet Mumbai Indians in the final on May 12. DC have never made it to the final but they will seriously start believing now. All they need to do now is beat 2 teams who have won the IPL 3 times to win their first title.With Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant in their ranks, Delhi Capitals have dared to dream. And they have learned to dream big. An IPL title is not too far off now.Also Read | IPL 2019: Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw knock SRH out, Delhi Capitals on course for maiden finalAlso Read | IPL 2019: Rishabh Pant objects after Shreyas Iyer decides to withdraw run-out appealFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

On a personal note, this was an exciting interview for me. I have been an admirer of Sid and his creativity at both Garden & Gun and Southern Living for many years. His appreciation of the South, American made and damn good barbecue really helped us shape what I wanted to focus on when we started The Manual.Tell us a bit about yourself.I was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee and headed up North to Connecticut College where I was an English major. I worked on the magazines in high school and college for fun. I never thought it would lead to a career! Once I graduated I started teaching English. Did that in Switzerland for a year but it wasn’t a long-term thing.My first magazine gig was at Abuzz magazine in L.A. (now defunct) and then I moved to New York and really started my career there at Sports Afield. Terry McDonald (the Editor) was my mentor and really one of the best (formerly of Esquire and Sports Illustrated). He went to Men’s Journal and I went there with him. I was there for five years and was Editor-in-Chief (EIC) for the last two years. I loved that magazine. It had a great mix of men’s service with an adventure angle. It wasn’t all about working out, it was much more experience oriented.Then I was EIC of Field & Stream for another five years and I had a long run in New York City, for about 15 years. But we had two little kids and we started talking about the South. My wife is from Nashville and we didn’t want to stay in NYC forever. In the spring of 2007 I got a call from Garden & Gun. Their first editor stayed for about an issue and a half. Their concept was a crazy idea at the time but the more we talked the more exciting it became. Next thing we knew we were in the car to South Carolina.In 2011 I moved to Birmingham, Alabama to become a Group Editor at Time Inc., overseeing five brands including Southern Living, Cooking Light, Coastal Living, Sunset, and This Old House. It was a big job, but Southern Living is the mothership here in Birmingham and I saw huge potential in this brand that had been around for nearly 50 years. So here I am. It is a great time to be here and a great time to be in the South.The region has totally exploded on every front.Jeans:I am a Levis guy. Occasionally  I have ventured away but I always come back. You can mostly find me in 501’s but I do have a variety.Shirts:I keep it pretty simple. I am a huge fan of Billy Reid. I have never come across anyone else whose shirts fit as well. You can wear them up or down. I tend to go from one event to another that are totally different (from dressy to a BBQ) so I can count on Billy’s stuff to be appropriate. J.Crew is a go-to and I love Sid Mashburn. It is one of the best men’s clothing stores in America. Sid has created a cool, comfortable environment.Pants:My Banana Republic khakis are a staple. I grew up going to a prep school in Memphis and there are some habits you just can’t shake.Suits:You got to have Seersucker in the closet and I might bust mine out about twice a year, but it is a critical one for a guy in the South. Sid Mashburn makes a great suit and a place called Shaia’s in Birmingham is another go-to. Anything Ken Shaia recommends I follow his lead. He knows his fabrics and has great recommendations.Shoes:I love my Blundstones. Those are my winter go-tos. Puma’s on the weekend and OluKai’s in Charleston.Accessories:I’ve got a Filson bag I carry everywhere. I get a lot of compliments on it. It is just a green Filson bag, a relic of my days at Field & Stream. It is canvas and has thousands of miles on it and it holds up.I don’t wear a watch so there isn’t much on that end. Usually a good baseball hat for those unshowered Saturdays – they come in handy.Outerwear:I live in the South so it isn’t a huge concern. I love Patagonia. Always have. It is so versatile and I think I have a trench coat in my closet that has been hanging there since I left New York. But if it is a downpour I wear my Patagoina rain jacket.Favorite Cologne:I don’t wear it.Your favorite App:I have to say, it is probably my Grateful Dead App! I can listen to any show from any year any time I want. That comes in handy sometimes. Yes, I’m a closet Dead Head.Favorite piece of technology:My iPhone. Although I got a UV Boom speaker that syncs with your phone and the sound is amazing.Next tech purchase:The next iPhone. I am intrigued by the watch but not quite ready to go there.How about Father’s Day ideas?Look, what I want is to hang out on Sullivan’s Island and spend time with my family. That is the most important thing. But it is always nice to get something too. I love bourbon for one thing. I am a big fan. There are so many interesting kinds out there. You see what has happened in the bourbon world. I just learned about Belle Mead.I have also been coveting the Brackish Bow Ties coming out of Charleston. We ran them in the magazine and somehow what we had in the office disappeared.Speaking for myself and fathers in general, some kind of experience is a really cool gift. Say a cooking class, cocktail making class, things like that. A fishing trip too. Those are things I would get really excited about.We just did these Southern Living food awards, recognizing great artisanal food in the South. We taste tested nearly 300 different things (which is not as much fun as it sounds). There are these pickles, Pogue Mahone Pickles. They are the best tasting pickles. Cold, crispy and spicy. I love seeing things like that coming out. That is a great gift.Jack Rudy cocktail mixers are amazing gifts too. Brooks is a genius. Lastly, we have been doing some books lately. As we are focused on a women’s audience we have been doing some things for a men’s audience too. We just published A Southern Gentleman’s Kitchen by Matt Moore. It is showing men how to up their game in the kitchen. We also have The Ultimate Book of Barbecue by Chris Prieto. It is really technique oriented with great recipes like how to cook a brisket and some more show stopping barbecue. A third on is On the Road Again by Morgan Murphy, which is full of recipes from diners and dives all over the South. They really do appeal to a male audience and there is a need there for these books. They are selling like crazy. Editors’ Recommendations 1. Southern Living 2. Southern Living 3. Southern Living 4.

Harris says busing should be considered not mandated

Posted on by

first_imgWest Des Moines(US): Sen Kamala Harris said Wednesday that busing students should be considered by school districts trying to desegregate their locations not the federal mandate she appeared to support in pointedly criticising rival Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden last week. Harris had a breakthrough moment at the candidates’ first debate when she criticized Biden for his opposition to mandatory school busing when he was a senator in the 1970s. Harris said she benefited from busing as an elementary school student in Berkley, California, in the early 1970s. Also Read – Turkey preparations for Syria offensive ‘completed’ “That’s where the federal government must step in,” Harris said, looking at Biden and winning a burst of applause from the auditorium in Miami. On Wednesday, though, Harris characterized busing as a choice local school districts have, not the responsibility of the federal government. Busing, while not central to the Democratic primary, has become a proxy issue for the debate between Biden and Harris over race as well as broader questions about the 76-year-old former vice president is out of step with his party. Also Read – Imran Khan arrives in China, to meet Prez Xi Jinping After a Democratic Party picnic Wednesday in West Des Moines, Harris was asked by reporters whether she supports federally mandated busing. “I think of busing as being in the toolbox of what is available and what can be used for the goal of desegregating America’s schools,” she responded. Asked to clarify whether she supports federally mandated busing, she replied, “I believe that any tool that is in the toolbox should be considered by a school district.” In a tweet Wednesday, Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield knocked Harris for her response, writing, “It’s disappointing that Senator Harris chose to distort Vice President Biden’s position on busing particularly now that she is tying herself in knots trying not to answer the very question she posed to him!” Harris’ comments Wednesday were far from the indictment she delivered during the debate last week. Under attack on the debate stage, Biden appeared stunned and dismissed Harris’ comments as a mischaracterization of his positions. He has notably begun his remarks to fundraisers by talking about how civil rights spurred his entry into public life more than 45 years ago. To be sure, Biden’s record on busing is complicated. Biden has insisted he only opposed busing ordered by the federal Education Department, and said allowing local governments and school districts to implement busing was “one of the things I argued for” at the time. During an appearance at a conference last week in Chicago, Biden told the audience he “never, never, never, ever opposed voluntary busing.” But Biden was an outspoken opponent of federally mandated busing in the 1970s and ’80s, sponsoring a congressional measure that would have limited funding for federal busing efforts. The issue spilled into Iowa as Harris and Biden returned Wednesday for the first time since the debate. Both will need some success in Iowa’s leadoff nominating caucuses to build momentum heading into South Carolina, the first Southern primary, where they are vying aggressively for a robust African American voting bloc. Biden and Harris also have been aggressively courting members of the Congressional Black Caucus, with Harris edging Biden in endorsements, picking up support from Reps. Bobby Rush of Illinois and Frederica Wilson of Florida. Biden last week landed the support of popular Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. In Iowa, where African Americans are a small minority, endorsements from black leaders are magnified. Harris got the backing of two popular black ministers after her debate performance last week. Appearing Wednesday evening in Waterloo, Iowa’s most densely African American city, Biden received the backing of one of that city’s most influential black ministers.last_img read more

We can no longer turn our backs on communities affected by migration

Posted on by

“Libya, once a booming economy which many hopeful migrants viewed as a prized destination, is today a country beset by a grave security situation, a collapsing economy and virtually no service provision which is worsening an increasingly complex migration situation,” said William Lacy Swing, Director General of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in a press statement. The statement emphasized that fostering a stable environment to bring about a much-needed holistic approach to migration governance is now a priority. There are different migratory flows moving through and towards Libya, driven by underdevelopment, State fragility, marginalization and security threats in West Africa, East Africa and the Middle East. These are compounded by political insecurity and conflict, which further exacerbate existing vulnerabilities of the affected communities, including Libyans themselves, according to IOM.Mr. Swing will meet with the Interior Minister of the Government of National Accord, Alaref Al Khoja and the Chairman of the Presidential Council of the Government of National Accord, Fayes Al Sarraj to discuss how IOM can strengthen its technical support to these communities within Libya. “As humanitarians, we can no longer turn our back on the communities affected by the current migration crisis in Libya,” Ambassador Swing underscored. “This is why IOM is enhancing its support to the most vulnerable people in the country – be they migrants or Libyans,” he added.There are an estimated 303,608 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Libya, according to IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix. A majority have been displaced from areas in the north-east and north-west of the country, particularly in Sirte and some parts of Benghazi. Displaced Libyans are suffering from a lack of access to essential services, including medical assistance and economy opportunities. IOM works with local government and communities to promote stability and development for IDPs, migrants and local host communities in Libya. It is also helping to establish a better system of managing the migration situation on the ground. Mr. Swing will also meet with migrants at Triq Al Sekka detention centre, where he will speak to Ahmed Issa, Head of the Directorate for Combatting Illegal Migration, about how IOM can offer continued support, such as through direct assistance, infrastructure development and voluntary humanitarian return.Due to the situation, many migrants are turning to IOM for help getting home. Since 2011, IOM has helped 13,691 migrants get home to safety. Just this week, the UN agency assisted 160 stranded migrants return from Tripoli to Cote d’Ivoire. IOM stresses that increased support to voluntary humanitarian returns is essential to improving migration management and a long-term commitment to forging links between effective reintegration schemes, stability and local development potential in communities of return. The UN migration agency is launching an Action Plan for Libya to work with the authorities to address the many challenges faced by migrants, IDPs, returnees and the affected Libyan population. The two key objectives of the approach are to urgently provide humanitarian assistance and protection to affected populations in Libya and contribute to stability, build capacities and resilience of Libyan authorities, as well as the affected populations themselves. read more

Coop Education helps student fasttrack career success

Posted on by

When Adam Campagnolo crosses the stage at Convocation next week, his dream job will be waiting on the other side.The 22-year-old Bachelor of Business Administration student has just wrapped up his final year at Brock’s Goodman School of Business with the knowledge that there is a full-time investment banking analyst position with RBC Capital Markets ready for his arrival in July.Thanks to his co-op studies, hard work and commitment to extracurricular business competitions, Campagnolo has earned a spot within the highly competitive world of investment banking, offering advisory services to facilitate mergers and acquisitions and help companies raise capital.Having completed four co-op work terms in the industry during his time at Brock, Campagnolo says that it was the help of one of Brock Co-op’s employer development managers, Ryan Larouche, that gave his career an initial push in the right direction.“Before my first co-op work term, Ryan introduced me to some contacts at Scotiabank and that helped land me my first finance work term,” he said. “The co-op team can position you to help yourself, and that goes a long way in the business world.”Campagnolo is among the thousands of students who annually benefit from Brock’s diverse co-op education options, which include co-op employment opportunities in 40 programs.Larouche was quick to point out that while the Co-op team’s assistance is beneficial, it was the hard work and commitment Campagnolo dedicated to securing full-time employment in the investment banking industry has been the determining factor in his early success.“Adam is always willing to go the extra mile and put in all of the time needed to exceed expectations,” said Larouche. “It’s our job to guide and help our students get started, and it’s up to them to take action and use those connections and tips to succeed.”In an industry that often demands extremely long hours and has only a few positions on offer each year, Campagnolo has had to do his fair share of work, at times putting in more hours in one week than professionals in other industries do in two. But he says his love of the job makes it all worth it.“I think the opportunity to work on deals that headline Bay Street news is really appealing,” he said. “The job is very demanding, but you get to learn from some of the smartest people in finance and have the opportunity to do really interesting work.”In fact, Campagnolo excelled so much in his work terms that he secured his upcoming full-time position nearly a year before he graduated.“I signed my offer in August 2017 and it has made the last year really enjoyable,” he said. “I don’t have too many things to worry about and that has helped me relax a little bit.”As he prepares to enter the world of full-time work, Campagnolo is counting on his co-op skills to help him hit the ground running.“The skills I learned will help me right away when I start,” he said. “There are so many parts of the job that are important. During my work terms, I got a taste of what it’s like to be an employee and to contribute meaningful work, show value and gain experience as a whole.“I’m excited to move on to the next stage of my life and I cant wait to go back to work, but I’ll miss Brock because I had a great experience and met some fantastic friends and professors here.”With his parents there to cheer him on, Campagnolo will graduate on Thursday, June 7 and spend the rest of the spring preparing to take his Chartered Financial Analyst Level One exam, an essential certification for any up-and-coming finance professional.With the test, Convocation and his July start date on Bay Street just around the corner, Campagnolo reflected that it was the co-op program that has ultimately been the primary catalyst towards achieving his investment-banking dream.“I had the ambition to join investment banking, and doing the co-op work terms helped me develop the knowledge, experience and resumé that I needed to get into it,” he said. “Without co-op, I know for a fact I would not have been able to get the full-time job that I wanted.” read more

Ohio State womens soccer misses out on Big Ten Tournament after 20

Posted on by

Two second-half goals in a 12-minute stretch helped the No. 8 Michigan women’s soccer team defeat visiting Ohio State 2-0 Saturday night.The loss to the Wolverines will prevent the Buckeyes from getting a chance to defend their Big Ten Tournament championship next weekend in Champaign, Ill.The teams played to a scoreless draw in the opening half with the Buckeyes holding a 9-7 lead in shots. OSU freshman forward Nichelle Prince had three of the five shots on goal late in the half.Michigan could not convert on their three corner kicks in the first half, but early in the second half their fortunes would change. Senior forward Shelby Chambers-Garcia found the back of the net off a corner kick from freshman forward Madisson Lewis, giving the Wolverines a 1-0 lead in the 60th minute.OSU would press to tie, but freshman goalkeeper Taylor Bucklin saved shots on goal from senior defender Danica Wu and sophomore defender Marisa Wolf.A little more than a minute after Wolf’s shot, Michigan would add on to the lead as senior forward Nkem Ezurike outran the defense, and netted her 11th goal of the season to give the Wolverines a 2-0 lead.The Buckeyes would wind up with a total of 10 shots in the second half, but could not get past Bucklin, who finished the day with seven saves, improving her record to 15-2-1 on the season.OSU will have to wait and see if it gets a berth in the NCAA tournament. The selection show is on NCAA.com at 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 11. read more

Ohio State focuses on improving after 39point win

Posted on by

OSU redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) runs through the Rutgers defense toward the end zone during an Oct. 18 game at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 56-17.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorThe question for Ohio State heading into its matchup with Rutgers was simple: Will the momentum still be there?A quick 14-0 start for the No. 13 Buckeyes (5-1, 2-0) showed they still had a spark despite two weeks off. In a total team effort, OSU led the Scarlet Knights (5-2, 1-2) in nearly every significant statistical category — save penalties and time of possession — but its coach said there’s still work to be done.“It’s time to, first of all, develop depth,” Urban Meyer said after his team’s 56-17 win. “We could go on and on about the mistakes that were made today. But enjoy the win tonight, go see your families, do what you gotta do and come back ready to go.”For the Buckeyes, the time to “come back ready to go” will be Saturday when they are set to face Penn State on the road. The last time OSU faced-off with the Nittany Lions, the Scarlet and Gray came away with a 63-14 win at home. That 2013 win came at Ohio Stadium, but the last time OSU traveled to State College, Pa., the result was comparable. OSU beat Penn State, 35-23, on Oct. 27, 2012, before last season’s shellacking. On top of recent success against their upcoming opponents, the Buckeyes are on a historic streak this season against all takers.Even with any room for improvement the coaching staff might see, the 2014 Buckeyes have already carved out a spot in the OSU record books, specifically when it comes to offensive production. The team posted 50-plus points for the fourth straight game — a school record — and it gained 500 yards or more in each of those games, which is tied for the program’s best.Production of that nature would be a good sign for every team, but at least one OSU assistant said he wants to keep focusing on ways to improve instead of talking about what the Buckeyes have done lately. Co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman said he’s not ready to make a judgment on where OSU stands, but added he hopes to have a clearer picture as the Big Ten schedule heats up.“Obviously the scoreboard and the play-by-play or stats say that we’re playing pretty well, but as a coach you always try to find the things that you can get better at,” Herman said after the game. “I don’t know how well we’re playing.”Meyer said it will be important for the Buckeyes to continue focusing on improvement rather than touting recent success, something he said he feels the team is able to do.“The good thing is that I don’t feel like there’s a complacent attitude,” Meyer said. “Complacency is awful in this business and with the players, because when you watch the film, we could actually have played a lot better in certain situations.”In order to find the spots where OSU could have performed better against the Scarlet Knights, it might be key to look beyond the box score.The Buckeyes totaled 31 first downs on offense while holding Rutgers to a three of 13 performance on third down on defense. OSU also outgained the opposition 585 to 345 and won the turnover battle, 3-1.Much of that success on both sides of the ball came early in the game for the Buckeyes, which led to a 35-7 advantage at the half.“Our focus is always to start fast and get things going,” redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett said after the game. “I think we executed better than in past weeks, but we can still eliminate some mistakes. I put some of that on myself.”Barrett’s own mistakes didn’t come until he had already nearly hit double digits in pass attempts, as he completed his first nine throws of the game. But after Barrett ran for two scores and threw for another in the first 10:46 of the third quarter, he and the Buckeye offense stalled.From that point on, OSU didn’t post another point and recorded just one gain of more than 14 yards.To an extent, the Buckeyes’ defense mirrored the fast start and slow finish of their offensive counterparts. Before addressing that less-than-stellar second half, Meyer praised the defense’s overall performance against a team he said the Buckeyes respected going in.“Our defense, you credit that, you can take the first half that’s a credit to our defense,” Meyer said. “They took a team that threw 400 plus yards against our rivals and really played well, creating turnovers once again and getting the ball to the offense rather quickly.”From a scoring standpoint, the Buckeyes’ matchup with Rutgers was tied for their second-best defensive outing of the season. Sophomore safety Vonn Bell credited that success to every player on the defense being “all in” on what it is trying to achieve.“You can see the progression of our players and see us getting takeaways and scoring,” Bell said after the game. “It’s very impressive this young group can understand what the coaches are telling us.”But Meyer stressed that — despite bright spots — the defense still didn’t have the start-to-finish effort he would like to see, especially when some less experienced players got a chance to make a statement late.“We gave up some runs, and when a two gets in the game there can’t be that big of a drop off,” he said of the second-string defense’s performance in the game. “And right now we all saw what happened, there’s a significant drop off when our twos got in there.”Co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell said the coaching staff tries to communicate to the backups that they need to treat their playing time the same as if they were starters.“We try to talk to those guys, ‘Hey, don’t consider yourself a two,’” Fickell said. “‘You want to be a one-B.’ That means there’s not a big drop off between the one-A and the one-B.”Even though the slow finishes to the game on both sides of the ball didn’t affect the outcome of the contest, Fickell said the Buckeyes have to make sure they stay hungry rather than settling — even after a 39-point win.“We’re never satisfied with where we are,” Fickell said. “And that’s the thing that we think that … going into what we were doing, we’ve got to be able to finish things.”Whatever adjustments or improvements the Buckeyes can make are set to be showcased after a week of practice. OSU is scheduled to take on Penn State on Saturday in State College, Pa. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. read more
