University hosts rivalry blood drive

first_imgFollow us on Twitter @dailytrojan The rivalry between USC and Notre Dame didn’t only play out on the field this weekend.The USC Red Cross Club hosted its 2013 USC vs. Notre Dame Rivalry Blood Drive from Oct. 11 to Oct. 18.The Rivalry Blood Drive is a competition with the University of Notre Dame to see which school can collect the most blood within the week. Stations where students could donate blood were set up at McCarthy Quad, Harris Residence Hall and University Village.This year, USC collected 142 units of blood. Notre Dame’s results are not yet known.In past years, the Blood Drive competed with crosstown rival UCLA, but their numbers were too low to elicit much of a competition, according to USC Red Cross Club President Diana Chung. Notre Dame proved to be a new challenge.“Notre Dame is definitely not an easy rival,” Chung said. “They reach out not only to their campus but their entire community around campus, which we aren’t able to do because of security measures.”The event is meant to coincide with the USC vs. Notre Dame football game.“At the end of the weekend it’s like a kind of culmination with the football game to see who wins the blood drive and who wins the football game,” said Madelyn McCadden, a sophomore majoring in global health and a member of the Red Cross Club.The blood drive was sponsored by various organizations including Chicanos/Latinos for Health Education, Vietnamese Student Association, Alpha Phi Omega, Trojan Pride, Tzu Ching Trojans, Delta Sigma Pi, Panhellenic Council and Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering, which sent volunteers to help run the drive.One of the volunteers, Shelief Juarez, a sophomore majoring in political science and biology and member of the Chicanos/Latinos for Health Education, said she enjoys being able to give back.“It’s a really good opportunity to help around campus,” Juarez said.Students showed up to give blood for a variety of reasons, either by walk-in or appointment.Ryan Burrow, an undeclared freshman, mentioned that his fraternity is involved in a community service initiative and was looking for ways to contribute.“We’ve been seeing this truck on campus all week and we thought me might as well all go out and do it,” he said.The club reports that every donation will save three lives.Chung noted that some people must be turned away for a variety of reasons, such as being sick within the last week or having an iron deficiency.“We definitely have to turn people away,” she said. “We want to make sure that the blood itself that we give to sick patients isn’t contaminated.”Men who have had sexual relations with other men since 1977 are also not allowed to donate.“There was a thing where we had to turn away someone that was gay,” McCadden said. “There’s a federal law still in place where they won’t take blood if you’re gay because of the risk of HIV.”Kyron Richard, a sophomore majoring in public relations, said he was turned away after filling out the personal questionnaire.“[The Red Cross attendant] was really respectful about it, but he basically told me there was an FDA regulation that didn’t allow men who had any kind of sexual contact with men since ’77 to donate blood,” Richard said.Even still, Chung considers this year’s drive to have had a successful turnout.“This year we didn’t have as many appointments,” Chung said. “But we definitely had a lot of walk-ins, which more than made up for the appointments.”last_img read more

South Africa stuns Africa Cup of Nations hosts Egypt

first_imgSouth Africa captain Thulani Hlatshwayo headed just wide as he darted on to a free kick with 20 minutes remaining.Nigerians celebrate Egypt down and outCairo, Egypt | AFP | Thembinkosi Lorch scored on 85 minutes to give South Africa a stunning 1-0 victory over Africa Cup of Nations hosts Egypt after a pulsating last-16 clash in Cairo Saturday.After three woeful group performances, South Africa were rank outsiders against the record seven-time African champions, whose line-up included Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.A seesaw struggle was settled when a swift counterattack allowed Lebo Mothiba to send Lorch through and he fired past goalkeeper Mohamed Elshenawy.The winners were unrecognisable from the team that struggled in the group stage as they displayed sharpness and desire not previously evident.South Africa will face arch-rivals Nigeria, who eliminated defending champions Cameroon in Alexandria earlier Saturday, in the quarter-finals.Salah, who missed some midweek training due to a cold, was generally well policed by a superbly organised South African defence.Egypt changed three of the side that defeated Uganda to complete Group A with a 100 percent record, five goals scored and none conceded.Back came defender Mahmoud Alaa, midfielder Tarek Hamed and forward Marwan Mohsen with Baher Elmohamady, Nabil Donga and Ahmed Hassan dropping to the bench.South Africa made two changes, both in midfield, from the team that lost to Morocco and squeezed into the second round with the worst record of the best four third-place teams.In came South African Premiership Player of the Season Lorch and fit-again Dean Furman for Thulani Serero and suspended Themba Zwane.Bafana Bafana (The Boys) had been woeful in all three Group D matches, barely troubling rival defences, and the public and media slammed the negative tactics of coach Stuart Baxter.The England-born coach hinted at a more attacking approach and was true to his word as Percy Tau and Lorch had ambitious long-range attempts at goal within three minutes of the kick-off.– Tormented –Salah, the reigning African Footballer of the Year, had a shot deflected wide soon after.Mahmoud ‘Trezeguet’ Hassan, one of the Pharaohs’ stars in the group stage, tormented several defenders just outside the box and induced a foul, but Abdallah el Said botched the free-kick.The desire of South Africa to attack was evident again on 15 minutes when impressive winger Tau stung the fingertips of Elshenawy with a hard, long-range shot.Tau came much closer to breaking the deadlock midway through the half with a free-kick that cleared the wall and forced Elshenawy into a brilliant save.South Africa were looking the likelier side to break the deadlock and a brave block by Ayman Ashraf foiled Lorch.Mokotjo then unleashed a sizzling low,long-range shot that flew past Elshenawy but finished just off target,The frustration of Egypt, who scored all five group goals before half-time, was mirrored in the angry reaction of Salah when a free-kick was awarded against him.Mexico-born Egypt coach Javier Aguirre altered his largely ineffective attack at half-time, bringing in veteran Ahmed Ali for Mohsen.‘Trezeguet’ squandered a great chance just before the hour, tamely shooting straight at goalkeeper Ronwen Williams after a superb defence-splitting pass from Salah.Amr Warda, axed from the squad over sexual harassment allegations and swiftly recalled after player pressure, came off the bench on 64 minutes for his second tournament appearance. Share on: WhatsAppcenter_img Nigeria topple holders Cameroon in Cup of Nations classicOdion Ighalo scored twice and teed up Alex Iwobi’s winning goal as Nigeria eliminated defending Africa Cup of Nations champions Cameroon after a thrilling 3-2 victory in Alexandria on Saturday.China-based forward Ighalo bundled home a scrappy opener but Clarence Seedorf’s Cameroon hit back through Stephane Bahoken and Clinton Njie with two quick-fire goals before half-time.Nigeria drew level as Ighalo volleyed in his second just past the hour and he then turned provider to play in Iwobi to steer home three minutes later and set up an unexpected quarter-final clash with South Africa, who stunned hosts and favourites Egypt 1-0 in Cairo.“It was a good win and it was a difficult game. Even when they scored to make it 2-1 we still believed we could score and come back,” said Ighalo, as coach Gernot Rohr praised the resilience of the Super Eagles.“I think we dominated in the beginning and we scored a good goal. At the end of the first half there was a lack of concentration and Cameroon took advantage,” Rohr said.“But my young team always continues fighting and never gives up.”Seedorf was frustrated by Cameroon’s slow start although he could not fault the effort of his players.“I feel disappointment obviously and also some anger because I thought we were a little bit tense in a few moments, but I have to appreciate the players have done everything they could today,” he said. “It was not enough.”Seedorf’s penchant for change has seen the former Dutch star heavily rotate his side in Egypt, with Karl Toko Ekambi dropping to the bench here and 2017 player of the tournament Christian Bassogog recalled along with Njie in a bid to breathe life into a faltering attack.Rohr had paid the price for resting key players in the shock 2-0 loss to Madagascar, with Wilfred Ndidi, Kenneth Omeruo and Alex Iwobi all returning to the starting line-up for this last-16 encounter.– Momentum swings back and forth –Nigeria eliminated Cameroon in the first knockout round the last time they were reigning champions in 2004, and their bid to repeat history looked on when Ighalo nudged Nigeria ahead after 19 minutes.Moments after Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui powered a header over at the other end, Peter Etebo hooked a deep cross to the far post where it was driven back across goal by Omeruo and Ighalo stabbed home via a huge deflection that wrong-footed goalkeeper Andre Onana.It was the first time Cameroon had conceded in Egypt, but after scoring just twice in the group stage the Indomitable Lions matched that output in three frenzied minutes before half-time.Bahoken pulled Cameroon level on 41 minutes when he ghosted in behind Omeruo to connect with a terrific whipped cross from Bassogog, and Njie soon fired them in front after outpacing Ola Aina to a flick-on, holding his nerve and balance to slip beyond Daniel Akpeyi.Njie nearly got the better of Akpeyi again early in the second half, the Nigeria ‘keeper superbly clawing the ball out from just inside his post after the Marseille winger’s cutback was deflected towards goal.Rohr introduced Samuel Chukwueze with an hour gone but it was Ighalo, the top scorer in qualifying, who came to the rescue once more with a thumping finish after Ahmed Musa chested a cross into his path.Ighalo joined Senegal star Sadio Mane on a tournament-leading three goals and he played a key role in Iwobi’s decisive strike on 66 minutes, threading the ball through to the Arsenal winger to side-foot past Onana.Ngadeu-Ngadjui toed wide at a corner but Cameroon struggled to truly threaten Nigeria in the closing stages with Ighalo denied a hat-trick late on as Onana plunged low to his right to knock away the forward’s header.last_img read more

NFL Players Association hires ex-Steeler Nolan Harrison

first_img“The lessons in leadership that I learned serving in those positions really served as a springboard for me in my professional career in the financial services industry after I left the game of football,” Harrison said. “The confidence those guys showed me really inspired me, but also served to ignite my passion to continue to serve and protect my brothers in any way possible.”He currently is serving his second three-year term on the NFLPA former players board of directors, is chairman of the health committee, and has served as president of the Phoenix chapter of the NFL Former Players Association.“To be selected by executive director DeMaurice Smith to this important role and to assist him, all players and staff, in achieving his vision for the NFLPA is a challenge that I relish and I’m looking forward to taking on,” Harrison said.Harrison was a defensive lineman for the Raiders, Steelers and Redskins. In 128 games played, he had 22 sacks before retiring in 2000. He played college football at Indiana University and was drafted in the sixth round of the 1991 NFL Draft.Brig Owens, a member of the Washington Redskins Ring of Fame and a longtime NFLPA figure, sees the 41-year-old Harrison as an important addition to the NFLPA staff.“He has been a consistent leader and fighter for players’ rights and benefits when he was an active player, and now as a former player,” Owens said. “In addition, he’s a good listener and does not shy away from asking the tough question. He has a clear understanding of the history and continuing struggle of the players.” WASHINGTON (AP)—Nolan Harrison was hired by the NFL Players Association on Monday as senior director of former player services. Harrison played 10 seasons in the NFL and was the player representative for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1998-2000. He also served on the NFLPA’s executive committee from 2000-02.

New dynasty: Giants capture 3rd title in 5 years

first_imgSan Francisco Giants starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner, right, and catcher Buster Posey celebrate 3-2 win against the Kansas City Royals in Game 7 of baseball’s World Series Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2014, in Kansas City, Mo. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip)SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Bruce Bochy is crazy superstitious. It’s a little-known fact about the unflappable San Francisco Giants manager.Mere mention of anything about a dynasty during the World Series made him uncomfortable. He felt equally uneasy when his name got linked to the best skippers of all-time — those Hall of Famers he well could join someday.Bochy doesn’t have to worry about a jinx now. After winning its third championship in five seasons, the new label for his team looks as if it will stick.“Dynasty” blared the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday.The Giants closed it out with a 3-2 win in Game 7 at Kansas City on Wednesday night, sealed by Series MVP Madison Bumgarner’s five shutout innings as a reliever this time.“A lot has to go right. First off, it starts with the talent,” Bochy said. “I mean, you need that, which we have. Then you have to deal with a lot of things maybe during the season. Every manager says, ‘Hey, we’re fine, we have a good chance to get there if we stay healthy.’ But that doesn’t always happen.”San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner holds the World Series trophy after Game 7 of baseball’s World Series Thursday, Oct. 30, 2014, in Kansas City, Mo. The Giants defeated the Kansas City Royals 3-2 to win the series. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall)In a remarkable every-other-year pattern, San Francisco somehow finds its best form in even years. With new faces and old ones, with castoffs and misfits and some key midseason acquisitions.Few clubs have captured three championships in a five-year span. The last National League team to do it was the St. Louis Cardinals with Stan Musial from 1942-46, so the Giants are the first of the free-agency era.The Oakland Athletics won three straight crowns in the early 1970s, and the New York Yankees captured four in five years from 1996-2000.Still, San Francisco was never considered a favorite or the best team in the regular season any of these times. Twice in this stretch, the Giants missed the playoffs altogether.After a runner-up finish in the NL West to the Dodgers at 88-74, they took the wild-card card route this time.On Wednesday night, Tim Hudson became a champion after a 16-year wait and Michael Morse got there following 10 major league seasons.“It’s the greatest group of guys I ever played with,” Morse said. “It’s a group of guys who believe in each other and the outcome was a World Series victory.”This city has had a football dynasty. So now the storied baseball franchise is doing its best to catch up with the NFL team in town. The Niners ruled in the late ’80s and ’90s, winning five Super Bowls.A unique element for Bochy’s latest winning roster is the talented crop of homegrown players who made it happen.There are the big names — Bumgarner, Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval. And the emerging ones — Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford, Joe Panik.“You look at most of our team — like Joe, me, Buster, Pablo, Belt, Bum. It’s loaded with a lot of good players and a lot of players who are pretty similar in kind of their approach to the game and they’re pretty even-keel,” said Crawford, the shortstop.“Pablo’s a little bit different but me, Joe, Belt, Bum, Buster, we’re all pretty levelheaded at any point in the game whatever part of the season it is, whether it’s playoffs or midway through the regular season. We don’t really change. That says a lot with how well we’ve done in the playoffs and the postseason in recent years,” he said.“Nothing’s really too big for us,” he added.Eight players have been on all three winning World Series teams: Bumgarner, slugging third baseman Sandoval, Posey and relievers Jeremy Affeldt, Javier Lopez, Santiago Casilla, Sergio Romo and Tim Lincecum. Matt Cain, too, but he was hurt this year.General manager Brian Sabean, longest-tenured in baseball, can’t put a finger on why the mix keeps working. He is proud of the core of players who were drafted and came through the system and played such a huge part this time.“It’s a testament to player development and scouting. That’s what we all hope for, that you can plug your holes from within and build your team from within,” Sabean said. “That’s a surefire way to kind of keep things moving forward. It prevents you from having to go into the market, whether it’s free agency or more so the trade market.”The Giants survived skids in June and September before winning the wild-card game at Pittsburgh. They then beat Washington in the Division Series and St. Louis in the NL Championship series.It has started with Bochy and his spot-on decision making, from resting the relievers regularly early in the season so he’d have every one of them for the October run, to going with Bumgarner at every chance.“But you have to play good baseball for six months, whatever, to get there,” Bochy said. “Once you get there, you’ve heard guys say, ‘Well, it’s a crap shoot,’ but you have to play your best ball. You have to have the pitching. That’s obvious. But you’ve got to execute.”For the Giants, it’s about every player doing his part and serving a role, because, as Sabean puts it, “We don’t have a star system here.”“It’s everybody’s got to pull on the same chain and everybody’s got to be ready to play,” he said. “They understand the culture.”Dynasty or not, Affeldt has solved a potential problem at home.The lefty reliever and Game 7 winner has three young sons — and, now, three championships.“My three boys now all get to have rings on their finger,” he said, “And I’m very happy about that.”last_img read more

Thurston Realtors Help Local Seniors and Refresh Historic Cemetery

Local businesses sponsoring the day of community improvement were Sparks Northwest Insurance, Boggs Inspection Services, United Roofing Solutions, Olympia Federal Savings, and Absolute Mortgage.A large contingency of Realtors cleaned up the overgrown Mima Prairie Pioneer cemetery. Photo courtesy: Thurston County REALTORS AssociationThe large number of Realtor volunteers took time away from the hot real estate market to partner with Senior Services for South Sound to help several local seniors in Olympia and Lacey clean up around their homes, doing physical projects for those who cannot. On the same day, another large group of Realtors made what has become an annual trek to the historic Mima Prairie Pioneer Cemetery to help maintain an otherwise overgrown resting place for some of the area’s first pioneers.The previous week, Olympia’s United Roofing Solutions contributed to the Community Service Day effort by clearing a senior’s roof of moss and treating it to help prevent more.United Roofing Solutions donated their effort to clean and treat a senior’s roof. Photo courtesy: Thurston County REALTORS Association“It is important to us to give back to the community we love,” says Rae Anne Toth, the 2017 president of TCRA .“Realtors believe that our seniors are community treasures and the Mima cemetery is a tribute to the heritage of the earliest settlers in our area. Realtors really turned out for this day—despite being incredibly busy in this market—and worked hard to make a difference.”The Realtors  helped the local seniors by carrying away piles of debris, trimming back overgrown bushes and trees, spreading gravel, cleaning gutters and even building a gate and repairing a deck. One senior woman they helped had at one time coordinated volunteer efforts herself and she commented that it was a huge blessing to be on the receiving end. At another home, Realtors helped a senior gentleman who is an eighteen-year veteran of the Lacey Police Department and a former Resource Officer for North Thurston schools. The man was grateful for the work done on the yard he had cared for meticulously.Realtors helped a grateful senior trim and clean up his yard as well as at several other locations. Photo courtesy: Thurston County REALTORS AssociationA large contingency of the Realtor Association members also spent the day at the Mima Prairie Pioneer Cemetery, providing their own mowers, saws, trimmers and muscle to clean up the plots, headstones and the old orchard, something they have done for the last six years and one of the primary ways the historic cemetery is maintained. Watch Brendan Marchant’s video of the work done in this beautiful location that sits in the middle of Weyerhaeuser land located in southwest Thurston County.“This is rewarding work and really feels like we make a significant difference in people’s lives,” commented Ed Kunkel, the chair of the Realtor committee that organized the day. “The ‘before and after’ at the old cemetery and in these seniors’ yards was incredible and gratifying for all of us. It made me proud to be a Realtor.The Thurston County REALTORS Association of more than 600 REALTOR members provides professional real estate services to buyers and sellers and has been committed to protecting property rights and preserving the quality of life in Thurston County for more than 90 years.last_img read more

Aura management issue apology for ‘misleading statement’

first_imgManagement of the Aura Leisure Centre have issued an apology for a statement in which they inaccurately reported that all children affected by an incident yesterday had been discharged from hospital.Two children were kept in Letterkenny University Hospital overnight.Pool water contained in the filtration system leaked back into the pool, management say. Some children who were swimming in the pool at the time fell ill and six presented to LUH, with at least two kept in for further assessment.“In speaking this morning with the parents of the children who were brought to the regional hospital yesterday, we learned that, contrary to what we had been advised by the hospital yesterday afternoon, two children were in fact retained for observation overnight,” the Aura management said this morning.“We deeply regret the misleading statement yesterday that said all the children had been discharged, and any upset caused to the parents and children involved.“ The safety and wellbeing of the children in question is of our utmost concern. We will endeavour to maintain close contact with those involved throughout the day.” Aura management issue apology for ‘misleading statement’ was last modified: April 21st, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Aura Leisure CentreletterkennyLetterkenny University Hospitalluhlast_img read more
