Ishmael puts off commitment to national signing day

Posted On Sep 17 2020 by

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Three-star wide receiver Steve Ishmael will put off his verbal commitment to national signing day, he said Wednesday night.“I am going to just wait until signing day,” Ishmael said. “I still want to look at the other schools and will make my decision then to see what school offers me the best opportunity.”In early December, Ishmael called Syracuse University the No. 1 school on his list. The North Miami Beach, Fla., native is expected to arrive in Syracuse around 2:30 Friday afternoon for his official visit. Joining Ishmael on the trip will be Alin Edouard, a close friend and three-star quarterback who verbally committed to the Orange on Oct. 20.Although Ishmael will finally see SU’s campus — an opportunity he’s waited a long time for — he said it’s unlikely that a decision will come during or at the end of the weekend.Heading into the visit, Ishmael has chiseled his list down to Syracuse, Illinois, Louisville, Cincinnati and Nebraska, he said. He has also received offers from Oregon, Pittsburgh and Miami (Fla.), among other schools.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the Orange has something no other program has: Edouard.Ishmael said that Edouard accompanying him on his visit is “special” and something “no other school can offer.”Said Ishmael: “Having him gives Syracuse an edge.”The Orange has received verbal commitments from four-star receiver K.J. Williams and freshman Corey Cooper, who is enrolled and eligible to participate in all football-related activities, according to SU Athletics spokeswoman Sue Edson.center_img Published on January 15, 2014 at 8:51 pm Contact Jesse: jcdoug01@syr.edu | @dougherty_jesselast_img read more


Students protest staff working conditions

Posted On Sep 17 2020 by

first_img“We are here not only because of the awful conditions of the workers at USC, but because the struggle for breaking down those conditions is entwined with a greater struggle for the political power of the working class,” Rico-Gomez said. “We hope that the contract that the workers are fighting for is passed.” One speaker said at the protest that the University allocated funds unequally to administrators and lower wages for the workers. An estimated 800 housing and hospitality workers at USC have partnered with Unite Here Local 11, a union for workers in Southern California and Arizona, to negotiate contracts with the University. The negotiations began last week, when Unite Here Local 11 negotiator Austin Lynch presented workers’ demands for increased wages and consistent working hours to University administration. Alejandro Rico-Gomez, a freshman majoring in fine arts who attended the protest, said students’ own backgrounds make the workers’ rights issue hit close to home. He said it was important for all members of the working class to unite on behalf of those struggling, saying that staff, students and faculty should come together to fight against what he called an oppressive administration. “It is a distribution problem; it’s not a resource problem,” he said. “How can a school with a $5 billion endowment say that they don’t have the capital to pay their workers? A school that is constantly expanding, gentrifying the surrounding neighborhood, adding to the increasing homeless population of Los Angeles — how can they say they don’t have the capital to pay their workers?” Ariann Barker, a freshman majoring in writing for screen and television, spoke at the protest and said she believes that under current conditions, workers’ rights are being infringed upon by insufficient pay and housing challenges. “We believe the university offers competitive compensation and exemplary benefits that make it a place people want to work,” the University wrote in a statement to the Daily Trojan. “We look forward to continued discussions with the union’s bargaining team and working together toward a new contract.” More than 25 students gathered in front of Tommy Trojan Thursday afternoon to denounce the University’s treatment of hospitality employees in the wake of a contract negotiation that began Nov. 13.  The students held signs that read “We stand with the workers of USC” and “Workers of the world unite.” At the demonstration, protesters spoke about workers’ holiday hours cuts and housing expenses. They alleged that the University owns many of its employees’ residences and charges them by the bed, making rent too expensive for staff with larger families.center_img Several of the students requested not to be identified, saying that the protest emphasized communal leadership and that allowing any individual to speak for the group would be counterproductive to the goal of the protest. During the protest, students walked from Tommy Trojan to the Tutor Campus Center until an operations coordinator asked that they relocate to avoid disrupting nearby students and blocking the TCC entrance. The protesters then walked across McCarthy Quad before stopping at USC Village, where they continued to chant and made speeches using a megaphone before returning to the center of campus. According to the University, USC has negotiated contracts with Local 11 in the past and expects to do so in this case as well.  “The workers that work in [USC] Village, the workers that work to scan your food in the dining hall, the workers that work in the [Customer Service Centers], who clean your room — everyone in this space has not been given the rights that they are guaranteed,” Barker said. As they marched, students chanted, “Racist, classist, neofascist” and “Hey hey, ho ho, subcontract has got to go,” referring to the University’s custodial services subcontract with Aramark, which one of the student speakers alleged works in the private prison industry. According to Aramark’s website, the company does not operate correctional facilities or penitentiaries but provides meals to inmates in 500 correctional facilities around the United States. More than 25 students gathered to protest the treatment of USC staff during a contract negotiation that began Nov. 13. (Ally Wei | Daily Trojan) Rico-Gomez said he learned about the protest on social media. The protest organizers spread the word using an Instagram account called Active Change USC that became active in the week preceding the protest and posted about the workers’ rights issues discussed at the protest. Students also placed flyers about the protest in residence halls and around campus.last_img read more

Top players, FIFA, CAF and health experts unite in the fight against Ebola

Posted On Aug 28 2020 by

first_imgTop international football players are joining forces with world football’s governing body FIFA, the Confederation of African Football and health experts to raise global awareness and promote simple preventative measures in the fight against Ebola.The “11 against Ebola” campaign, featuring Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, Barcelona’s Neymar Jr, Chelsea’s Didier Drogba and Bayern Munich’s Philipp Lahm among others, promotes 11 simple health messages selected with the help of doctors and health experts from Africa, the World Bank Group and theWorld Health Organization who are tackling the outbreak in West Africa.Underneath the slogan “Together, we can beat Ebola” and the hashtag #wecanbeatebola, players share each message with the help of animated films, radio content, banners, posters and pictures in a multimedia campaign launched on Monday, 17 November.Each health message, such as “Report unusual illnesses” and “Cook meat properly”, has been chosen to improve public understanding about how the virus spreads, and to provide clear information that can be used to reduce the chances of the virus spreading in affected communities.FIFA Chief Medical Officer Prof. JiÅ™í DvoÅ™ák, MD said: “We doctors have experienced the power of football when it comes to prevention and health, while successfully implementing the ‘FIFA 11 for Health’ programme in 15 African countries as part of the medical legacy of 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Now we are using the same system to tackle Ebola, by presenting simple educational messages to prevent the spread of the disease through the voices of football stars – ‘When football talks, everybody listens’.”The popularity of football and its top players has proven to be a powerful way to connect with a wide audience and to transmit public health messages. This is the first emergency health campaign of its kind implemented by FIFA. The world governing body of football has achieved positive results with previous public health awareness campaigns such as the FIFA 11 for Health, which recruited top players to promote simple health messages for children around the world. Neymar Jr said: “It is so important that we get the right information to those affected by the Ebola outbreak. We all hope this positive campaign will improve people’s understanding of the Ebola virus and help us to reduce the chances of it spreading. Let’s all get behind this campaign to help our brothers and sisters in the worst-hit regions. Together, we can beat Ebola.”FIFA President Blatter said: “The popularity of football gives us a unique platform to reach all communities. We hope that football can play its part and that this campaign against Ebola can make a real difference on the ground as the world comes together to fight the virus and to help those living in affected communities.”According to the World Health Organization, as of 9 November, a total of 14,098 confirmed, probable and suspected cases of Ebola virus disease have been reported in six countries. There have been 5,160 deaths. Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone have seen the highest number of cases.Download posters, pictures and banners featuring the players and their messages at www.fifa.com and share them in your community with the hashtag #wecanbeatebolaThe 11 against Ebola messages   Report unusual illnesses: please report any unusual illnesses or deaths in your community.Know the symptoms: do you have a fever with a loss of appetite, headache, fatigue, pain, vomiting, bleeding or diarrhoea?

City go for the kill, United aim to keep in touch

Posted On Jan 10 2020 by

first_imgTheir Manchester rivals had closed the gap to five points with a 1-0 win against Brighton on Saturday and, with City trailing to a Nicolas Otamendi own goal at half-time against Huddersfield, Jose Mourinho’s men were dreaming of a title lifeline.But City crushed those hopes in gritty fashion as Sergio Aguero’s penalty two minutes after the interval eased any nerves from the leaders, who piled on the pressure and were rewarded with six minutes left when Raheem Sterling netted the winner.City have now won their last 11 Premier League matches and 18 in all competitions.United can again move to within five points of their hated neighbours if they win at Watford on Tuesday, before City return to action at home to Southampton 24 hours later.Guardiola admits City’s scintillating run will end eventually, but he believes the way his team saw off fired-up Huddersfield should serve as a warning to their rivals that they are fully focused on the title.“If you want to win the title you can not expect easy games, so we have to live these kinds of situations and we spoke about at half-time how we are going to react in that situation,” he said.“We are going to lose. That is going to happen – definitely. Today was so close – it’s going to happen.“When you play every few days, when you see the scheduling – December, January – we go to Donetsk to play in the Champions League. It’s impossible.“The 18 games in a row is amazing and we have 11 in the Premier League in a row so that’s good. We have a good moment and with the spirit we can go further.“I am pleased because I know our fans are so happy because they see their players fighting until the end.”– Show of strength –United have no margin for error at Vicarage Road, where Watford will aim for a repeat of last season’s shock 3-1 win over Mourinho’s team.While Watford impressed in a 3-0 win at Newcastle on Saturday, United laboured to see off Brighton at Old Trafford until Lewis Dunk’s own goal from an Ashley Young effort sealed their second successive league win.United defender Victor Lindelof hopes his side can continue to grind out the wins while they search for their peak form.“We tried to do our best out there, we tried to play our game but it didn’t work out so good,” he said.“We got the three points and that is the most important thing. We didn’t play our best game but we got the win and that shows strength.”Champions Chelsea are lagging 11 points behind City in third place and must beat lowly Swansea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday to have any chance of catching the leaders.Key to their title defence is Eden Hazard’s ability to maintain the fine form he showed in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Liverpool.Afer an injury-hit start to the season, the Belgian excelled against Liverpool in the number 10 role behind Alvaro Morata.“The start of this season was full of trouble with Eden because he had an injury with the national team and we started the season without him,” Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said.“Now I think Eden is in really good form and I think he likes to play as a striker. There is a good link with Alvaro.”Fixtures (1945 GMT unless stated)TuesdayBrighton v Crystal Palace, Leicester v Tottenham, Watford v Manchester United (2000 GMT), West Brom v Newcastle (2000 GMT)WednesdayArsenal v Huddersfield, Bournemouth v Burnley, Chelsea v Swansea, Everton v West Ham (2000 GMT), Manchester City v Southampton (2000 GMT), Stoke v Liverpool (2000 GMT)0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling kicks the ball into the crowd as the final whistle blows in their match against Huddersfield Town in Huddersfield, northern England on November 26, 2017 © AFP / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 27 – Manchester City will bid to hammer home their advantage at the top of the Premier League against Southampton, while Manchester United head to Watford hoping to cling onto the leaders’ coat-tails in a crucial midweek programme.City underlined their determination to win the title with a gutsy 2-1 victory at Huddersfield on Sunday as Pep Guardiola’s side reestablished an eight-point lead over second placed United.last_img read more
