Saint Martin’s University Take Back The Night – Week of Activities…

Tag: 贵族宝贝

first_imgSubmitted by Saint Martin’s UniversityLACEY, Wash. —  At least one of every three women worldwide has been beaten, sexually assaulted or otherwise abused, and of these crimes, less than 50 percent were reported to police, according to the Take Back the Night international program. Saint Martin’s University will help break the silence on these injustices by joining a call for an end to sexual violence during its fifth annual Sexual Assault Awareness Week, April 8-11. The week’s activities will culminate with a Take Back the Night candlelight march, to be held on the University’s Lacey campus April 11, the final evening of the weeklong observance. All activities are free and open to the public.“The Take Back the Night planning committee is excited to expand our programming to engage the entire Saint Martin’s University community,” says Laurel Dube, assistant director of campus life and the event organizer. “By repeating programs in the afternoon and evening — and by hosting interactive self-defense and Title IX training, two new events this year — we hope to more effectively involve our faculty, staff, students, alumni and the surrounding community.”“It really is time to make a change that starts with a zero-tolerance culture,” Dube adds.Take Back the Night is a march held at locations around the globe to demand the end of all forms of sexual violence. Bringing together survivors, their supporters and community members, Take Back the Night marches have empowered people of all ages, races, religions, backgrounds and genders to raise a collective voice against sexual assault for more than 30 years. The first documented Take Back the Night event in the U.S. occurred in October 1975, when citizens rallied in Philadelphia to protest the stabbing murder of Susan Alexander Speeth, a young microbiologist who was attacked as she was walking alone just a block from her home. The first international Take Back the Night took place in Belgium in March 1976 at The International Tribunal on Crimes Against Women. More than 2,000 women from 40 countries participated.Emphasizing that Saint Martin’s week of activities is not just for women, Dube strongly encourages men to participate in solidarity with all sexual assault survivors. “It is very important that men of all ages show their love and support for their mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, girlfriends, nieces — all females who are near and dear to them and whom they want protected from sexual violence,” says Dube.Events scheduled on campus throughout Sexual Assault Awareness Week are as follows:Monday, April 8: The Clothesline Project, 12–2 p.m.  and 7–9 p.m., in the Trautman Union Building (TUB): The Clothesline Project was established in 1990. Individuals affected by violence, or who know others who have experienced violence, are invited to express their feelings by decorating a shirt that will be displayed on campus as a testimony to the issue of violence against women. Members of the SMU Counseling Center, Residence Life and Campus Life will host the event and will be available to speak with participants. Facebook29Tweet0Pin0 Thursday, April 11: Take Back the Night candlelight march, 7–9 p.m.: The march is open to all members of the Saint Martin’s University and Thurston County communities. It will begin in the TUB with a keynote address by Mary Pontarolo, executive director of SafePlace Olympia, an advocacy agency and confidential shelter for survivors of domestic violence. “Ms. Pontarolo’s message will be one of aiming to break the silence for victims of sexual assault and abuse, and striving to speak out and report instances of sexual violence to  law enforcement authorities,” Dube says. The march will extend across campus; at the conclusion, participants will be invited back to the TUB for refreshments and a closing activity.Saint Martin’s University is an independent four-year, coeducational university located on a wooded campus of more than 300 acres in Lacey, Washington. Established in 1895 by the Catholic Order of Saint Benedict, the University is one of 14 Benedictine colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and the only one west of the Rocky Mountains. Saint Martin’s University prepares students for successful lives through its 23 majors and seven graduate programs spanning the liberal arts, business, education, nursing and engineering. Saint Martin’s welcomes more than 1,100 undergraduate students and 400 graduate students from many ethnic and religious backgrounds to its Lacey campus, and 300 more undergraduate students to its extension campuses located at Joint Base Lewis-McChord and Centralia College. Visit the Saint Martin’s University website at www.stmartin.edu. Wednesday, April 10: Self-defense classes, 12–1 p.m. and 7–8 p.m., in the TUB: These two classes will be open to students, faculty, staff and members of the local community who want to learn basic self-defense moves and the actions to take when faced with dangerous situations. Tuesday, April 9: Presentation on Title IX and sexual assault on college campuses, 7 p.m. – 9:30 p.m., in the TUB: Cynthia Johnson, Title IX coordinator for Saint Martin’s University, will discuss the various resources available to students, faculty and staff to combat sexual harassment. Participants will learn how to prevent sexual harassment on campus and what to do in the event they experience sexual harassment. In addition, members of the SMU Counseling Center and the Office of Campus Life will present the documentary film You are the One and host a discussion about it. The film explores sexual assault awareness on college campuses through the work of two activists, Kelly Addington and Becca Tieder, who each endured a sexual assault experience while in college and have since devoted themselves to building communities with zero tolerance for sexual violence.last_img read more

first_imgBy Joseph SapiaHOLMDEL – The township Zoning Board is to continue a hearing Wednesday, May 18, on New Jersey Natural Gas’ proposal to build a gas line regulator on the site of the Holmdel Road solar farm at Hop Brook Lane.The regulator, which looks like a boiler and pipes, reduces the pounds-per-square-inch (PSI) of gas pressure in the line in a process that includes a heater to keep the line from freezing. The utility must reduce pressure in the feed line to safely connect with customers, according to New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG).The company is before the zoners because it needs three variances: one, to place the regulator as another principal use on the solar farm site; two, because the regulator would sit only about 90 feet from the across-the street property owner, rather than the required approximately 385 feet, in this “buffer zone” between residential and non-residential use; and three, fencing will be 8-feet-tall, or 2 feet higher than allowed.But the resident who lives across from the proposed regulator, Falguni Patel, and the Holmdel-based Citizens for Informed Land Use (CILU), have raised various concerns.If the town has a buffer zone between residential and non-residential uses, according to Regina Criscione, a spokesman for CILU, why allow the regulator?“On one side of the block, it may be commercial,” said Patel, who lives on Hop Brook Lane with her husband, Jag Desai, and their two children. “On the other side, residential.”And the Patel-Desai house is the closest residence.Other concerns raised by Patel and CILU include what could happen if a motor vehicle hits the regulator, the firefighting response to a gas fire in the area, and any emissions the regulator gives off.“It’s emitting stuff, whether they say it’s toxic or not,” Patel said.When Patel bought the property a few years ago, the land across the street was up for sale. In the year it took to build her house, Patel learned the solar farm was going in, she said.Patel said she supports solar energy and uses it, along with geo-thermal engineering (or using the ground’s heating and cooling power), to run her 6,000-square-foot house.“I was OK with it,” said Patel, speaking of the solar farm. “(But) I was disappointed not enough was going to be done with aesthetics (on the site).”NJNG, on the other hand, says it has already compromised – for example, with an existing earthen berm between the solar panels and Holmdel Road.“We are keeping more of that berm than the original plan and adding our own berm,” said Marc Panaccione, a NJNG engineer.Michael M. Kinney, a NJNG spokesman, said the company has been “working with local officials to amend” the plans.“The purpose of the regulator station is to provide service,” Kinney said. “Safety is the most important thing we do.”NJNG is to rent property a piece of the OCI Solar Power solar farm for the regulator. NJNG will have a 15-foot-wide gravel road along the solar panel fence to access the 75-foot by 75-foot regulator site. The regulator site will have an 8-foot-tall fence – the same height as the fence around the solar panels – and have wood-slat screening as a component.“It’s mostly below ground piping,” said Panaccione, speaking of the regulator.Heat vents will be 12- to 15-feet-tall, but buffered from view, Kinney said.NJNG’s berm will be 2-1/2-feet-tall, topped with evergreen and deciduous plantings ranging from about 2-1/2-feet- to 3-feet-tall at the lower end of planting to about 24-feet- to 30-feet-tall at the higher end of planting. Some of the vegetation could reach average heights of 40 to 50 feet, according to NJNG.“It’s a pretty decent mix of landscaping,” Panaccione said.As for emissions, the only thing coming from the regulator will be safe heat emissions , mostly water vapor and some carbon dioxide, Kinney said.In terms of safety, the regulator area will be protected by traffic-diverting posts and a guard rail, according to NJNG. Also, it will be at least 40 feet from the roadway, according to NJNG.As for a fire, a “natural gas fire, you don’t put out with a fire truck,” Panaccione said. “You turn it off.”Gas shutoffs are up and down the transmission line, according to NJNG.The transmission line is monitored continuously and its flow can be controlled remotely, Kinney said.The regulator results from a 2011-to-2012 upgrade of the gas transmission system between nearby Route 520 and the Route 36 corridor to the north, according to NJNG.“We’ve been looking for a place to place this station,” Panaccione said.The May 18 meeting is scheduled for 8 p.m. at Town Hall. It is a continuation of a hearing from February.Patel feels the gas regulator will move forward.“I want to fight it, I really do, but I feel this is just a show,” Patel said.last_img read more

South Africa’s wineexports rose 32% in volume and 42% invalue from 2007, to 45.2-million casesvalued at $780-million (R6.1-billion).(Image: MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. Formore free photos, visit the image library)Janine ErasmusSouth Africa is one of five wine-producing countries to join forces to form the New World Wine Alliance. The alliance plans to challenge European Union (EU) rivals under this banner. Europe is currently the world’s largest wine producer and exporter.So-called New World wines are produced outside the traditional European wine-cultivation areas in countries such as South Africa, Argentina, Chile, the US, New Zealand, Mexico, and Australia, which is the current market leader in the UK.The new alliance includes South Africa, New Zealand, California, Chile and Argentina – all of which will use their partnership as a marketing tool to further penetrate the global wine market and see off competition from European countries.This does not negate the fact that the five countries are still competitors in the market, but an alliance spokesperson said that all members will ultimately gain by sharing experience and best practice.“We have already benefited from each other enormously by exchanging viticultural and cellar research as well as innovations in packaging, marketing and logistics,” said the spokesperson.Official launchThe group will be officially launched at the next Prowein international wine and spirits trade fair, taking place over three days in Düsseldorf, Germany, in March 2010. In a world first, they will also exhibit their wines there as a joint force.The annual wine showcase, one of the most important trade shows on the wine calendar, attracted around 3 000 exhibitors in 2009, along with about 35 000 delegates and visitors from some 50 countries. Press coverage was extensive, making Prowein the ideal platform to launch the new wine alliance.Not only will the partners be exhibiting at the same pavilion, but together they will hold talks, seminars, presentations and workshops with relevant experts in the field.The pavilion’s theme, Down to Earth, suggests the main issues to be covered: sustainable wine production, management of scarce natural resources, management of climate change, cool-climate viticulture, organic wines, as well as market-related topics such as branding, building consumption sales, and icon wines, or wines of exceptional quality.Eastern focusAustralia has not joined the alliance because it has shifted its focus to the East. China is the world’s biggest single wine market in terms of population, as it is for beer, and the demand there for wine is growing. It is also the world’s sixth-largest wine producer.A 2008 report issued by China Wines Information predicts that wine imports into China will top US$870-million (R6.8-billion) by 2017 – a five-fold increase from the 2007 figure of $184-million (R1.4-billion).Challenging the EUMeanwhile, the New World Alliance will stand together as a unit to rattle EU winemakers. In 2006 the EU proposed a shake-up of its wine sector, prompted by growing competition from the New World, dwindling wine consumption in the region, and a fear that imports would eventually outstrip exports.New regulations were adopted by the EU Council of Ministers in April 2008, and are set to revamp the way the EU wine market is managed. The main focus areas are the reduction of the large quantity of unsold wine, which a few years ago was the equivalent of an entire year’s production, and the productive reallocation of funds to boost the competitiveness of European wines.For instance, the EU plans to stop paying producers for surplus cheap table wine and will instead divert this large slice of the EU wine budget into producing and marketing quality wines.Steady growthThe five partners of the alliance have all seen recent growth in exports despite the world-wide recession, and will continue to focus their efforts on the promotion of the New World as a source of top-quality wines and oenological innovation.In the period 2007 to 2008 all alliance members reported healthy export figures. South Africa’s exports rose 32% in volume and 42% in value from 2007, to 45.2-million cases valued at $780-million (R6.1-billion).Elsewhere in the southern hemisphere, Argentina’s 23.8-million cases exported were an increase of 14% in volume and 28% in value from 2007, and Chile’s exports rose 10% in value but decreased 3% in volume. Nonetheless, the 65.4-million cases were worth $1.4-billion (R11-billion).New Zealand saw 10.9-million cases leaving the country, an increase of 19%. The Antipodean country is famed particularly for its Sauvignon Blanc, and in June 2009 the country’s Nobilo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc became the top seller of its kind in the US.Exports from the US, of which 90% came from California, totalled 55-million cases worth $1-billion (R7.8-billion), an increase of 8% in volume and 6% in value.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

first_imgActress Priyanka Chopra, who plays the role of Olympic bronze medallist MC Mary Kom, says she has not tried to imitate the boxer on screen as her focus was on representing Mary’s spirit and personality.”We did not want to imitate her. We are making a Hindi film and we wanted the reach of the film to be wide. I am speaking a lot more in Hindi than Mary speaks and not in Manipuri. And I knew my face would never look like her we did prosthetics and lot of test. I don’t look like Mary. I don’t have the features like her, but I have given blood and soul for this film to make sure I represent Mary’s spirit and her personality to the best of my ability,” Priyanka said in an interview here.”Sanjay sir (Sanjay Leela Bhansali, producer of the film) said the film had to be about the spirit of Mary Kom and the story needs to be told. The fighting spirit of Mary is there in the film. Mary has seen the film and she has cried at some places…situations. She has given me her affirmation.For me, that is the biggest test won. Audience is god. They will decide the fate of the film,” she said.Mary Kom, Priyanka Chopra’Mary Kom’ is being touted as one of the much-awaited films of the year, though Priyanka says she never keeps any expectations from her films.”I never keep expectations from my film. I believe in destiny… I feel destiny and hard work go hand in hand. You can do the best and leave the rest. Every film has its own destiny. Off course I want people to love the film and get inspired. The film has personally inspired me a lot,” Priyanka said.advertisement”I am promoting the film because it needs promotion.But if I don’t talk about the film then how will people know about the film and her. I promote all my films irrespective of whether they will do well or not. I believe in commitment. For me, every film of mine is my ‘Mughal-E-Azam’. None of them will get less or more (attention) from me. I enjoy the process of film and the work that goes behind it,” she said.”The story that Saiwyn Quadras wrote on Mary Kom was amazing. It was his idea to make a film on Mary Kom and I give him credit for that. Writers are not given much importance and they don’t get good salary also which I think is tragic. When I heard the story of ‘Mary Kom’ I judged it for its story,” she added.To get into the skin of the character of boxer Mary Kom, Priyanka said she had to work on different things.”Being an actor I am supposed to train, but I am very lazy. It is horrible. I look fit and athletic and that is because my parents genetically look fit and they did not put weight till they were 45 years old. I am blessed that way. I had to go to gym for this film which was my punishment. I did hate going to the gym and I wanted to kill my trainer,” she said in a lighter vein.”This is not fitness. Fitness is very different from being an athlete. For us, fitness means healthy living, eating healthy and walking but this was about determination, focus, diligence, it is a lifestyle, a religion to be a sportsperson.For me, this experience was spiritual. I will never be a sportsperson…it will never happen to me again. I will never be able to represent my country in a competition where my ability will be tested. As an actor I got this opportunity to portray that,” she added.Priyanka reveals as she put in her 100 per cent efforts to play Mary Kom, thanks to the training she got for this film she can now play the sport.”To learn boxing was a religion. Today, I can play the sport as I know the rules, body posture, foot work, I can hit, I can defend I know the game and that was the big take away for me from the film. I did not have to act like a boxer, but I had to become one and that was spiritual,” she added.last_img read more

first_imgRoma captain Daniele de Rossi: Retirement ever closerby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAS Roma captain Daniele de Rossi admits he senses his career is coming to the end.The 35-year-old has been out since October 28 with a cartilage injury, and is unlikely to be fit to face Juventus on Saturday.“When I was young I’d have signed in any way to play half the Serie A games I have,” De Rossi told DAZN.“I’m a lucky guy, I’ve done the job I love, in the city I love, with the people I love. It weighs on me to look over the ravine, because I know the end is near, especially with this injury.“I’ve tasted what it means to be away from the squad, and I know it’s going to hurt me when I stop doing this job.“Whether that’s six months, a year, or three years, time is running out on my career.“This is the most serious injury of my career, it’s a cartilage problem, I’ve suffered a serious injury. It would be very serious if I were to tear it again at 35.“It takes time, I’ve started running and kicking the ball but I’m still behind.“The future? I have this dream of being a Coach, and if I have to think about all the things a Coach has to do what scares me most is doing 100 interviews a week!” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgNation to NationA series of announcements in the last few weeks, and several more expected any day, suggest the Trudeau government is rolling out its Indigenous rights framework by piecemeal opposed to the failed plan of one large piece of legislation.Those pieces appear to include the recently revamped K-12 education funding formula for First Nations across Canada. It is set to improve funding for First Nations as of April but also open the door to a self-government type of system for a single nation, or group, to negotiate with the federal government.The same concept is expected with Indigenous child welfare legislation, to be tabled in the House of Commons any day. There’s an opt-in clause expected in that legislation, meaning nations can do nothing, and remain status quo, or decide to negotiate a deeper deal with Ottawa to control the welfare of their children.That’s all similar to the idea of the Indigenous rights framework that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced last Feb. 14 in the House of Commons.The Trudeau government gave itself a deadline of last December to table a large bill that would likely to encompass all these new agreements in the hopes of doing away with the Indian Act.But it was going to provide First Nations with a clause to opt-out of the Indian Act. No nation was going to be forced out from under it. But if they opted out then they could negotiate what it actually meant regarding, such things as, title and taxation.Faced with still opposition, by many First Nations and regional governments, the Liberals backed away from tabling the bill.The idea was for Canada to “renew its relationship with Indigenous peoples, one based on recognition of rights, respect, co-operation and partnership.”That’s not from Trudeau speech, even though it sounds awfully similar, rather it comes from a Jan. 16 press release issued by Crown-Indigenous Relations marking the signing of a “protocol for consultation and accommodation” with the Huron-Wendat Nation.Similar language was used in an announcement involving the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne on Jan. 23 to solve issues of around border crossings. There’s another on Jan. 15 with the Mi’kmaq of Prince Edward Island and working towards a “Tripartite Framework Agreement” to recognize and implement the rights of the Mi’kmaq.“What we heard resoundingly from First Nations, Inuit and Metis is take the time to do it right and listen to us which is an obvious approach but novel for governments,” said MP Marc Miller, the parliamentary secretary to the minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations, on Nation to Nation Thursday.But Conservative MP Cathy McLeod said it can only been seen as a failure, or an over-promise, under-deliver situation by Trudeau.“The Prime Minister has failed in terms of standing up in the House a little over a year ago making a big commitment and not getting it done,” said McLeod, who is the Conservatives critic on Indigenous affairs.But what those that were against this approach in the first place?“It just shows that this government is not following through on its promise to have respectful dialogue,” said NDP MP Rachel Blaney.N2N@aptn.calast_img read more

first_imgLiving with a smoker after age 20 is associated with a 15 per cent greater risk of developing high blood pressure, warn researchers, adding that avoiding smoky environments can reduce the risk of hypertension. Passive smoking at home or work was linked with a 13 per cent increased risk of hypertension. Exposure to passive smoking for 10 years or more was related to a 17 per cent increased risk of hypertension and men and women were equally affected, said the researchers at “EuroHeartCare 2019″, a scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology, in Milan, Italy on Friday. Also Read – The Puja carnival”Avoid exposure to secondhand smoke regardless of whether the smoker is still in the room,” said study author Professor Byung Jin Kim from Sungkyunkwan University, Seoul, Korea. “Our study in non-smokers shows that the risk of high blood pressure (hypertension) is higher with longer duration of passive smoking – but even the lowest amounts are dangerous,” Kim added. This is the first large study to assess the association between secondhand smoke and hypertension in never-smokers verified by urinary levels of cotinine, the principal metabolite of nicotine. Also Read – Wave City brings special offers this NavratraIt included 131,739 never-smokers, one-third men, and an average age of 35 years. Participants with hypertension were significantly more likely to be exposed to secondhand smoke at home or work (27.9 per cent) than those with normal blood pressure (22.6 per cent). Hypertension was significantly more common in people exposed to passive smoke at home or work (7.2 per cent) compared to no exposure (5.5 per cent). “The results suggest that it is necessary to keep completely away from secondhand smoke, not just reduce exposure, to protect against hypertension,” said Professor Kim.last_img read more

It was that all too familiar feeling. After a dominant 34-25 scoreline heading into the break, the question lingering in the back of every Buckeye fan’s head was slowly becoming a reality – could they really lose this game? I wanted to believe I went colorblind, or that Ohio State started the half wearing Kansas’ jerseys as an early April Fool’s prank, but that wasn’t the case. A common sequence transpired for the next 20 minutes. Kansas responded, breaking hearts in Columbus, eliminating the Buckeyes from the Final Four, 64-62. So there is a new question for Buckeye fans – what could be next for the OSU men’s basketball team? It can be expected that changes will be made when a team travels the distance OSU did in the tournament. Between coaches wanting to find a new home and players graduating or entering the next level of competition, it is a common chain of events. The question can be summarized as a big “what if?” but a prediction is necessary with all the talent surrounding the team. Former guard William Buford will be the only player leaving the roster due to his senior status. Forward Evan Ravenel and guard Alex Rogers will be the only seniors on the roster beginning next year. The leading scorer, former sophomore forward Jared Sullinger, is officially out. The sophomore announced his departure on Wednesday, opening up the center position for the Buckeyes. Satch Sullinger, Jared Sullinger’s father, weighed in on the topic to WBNS-10TV’s ‘Wall to Wall Sports’ following the loss on Saturday: “The one question that I’ll have for Jared is, at this point, coming back, what do you have to prove?” The All-American didn’t have much more to prove. Sullinger led the team in points and rebounds for the past two years. If health was a major concern, it was no surprise that we saw the last game Sullinger plays in the scarlet and gray. Sophomore forward Deshaun Thomas will have until April 10 to make his decision on entering the NBA Draft, according to the NCAA. With Buford and Sullinger gone, and the possibility of Thomas joining them, there will be a void that needs to be filled. When it comes down to it, the Buckeyes are young. Freshman forward Sam Thompson and sophomore guard Jordan Sibert are prepared to take the two open positions. Thompson played in each game this season and has impressive athleticism and ball handling. On the other hand, Sibert appeared in 24 games this season, but offers good size alongside sophomore guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. Bearing in mind the departure from Sullinger, Ravenel would be a solid replacement. Ravenel was the only other player to start for the Buckeyes this season providing plenty of minutes off the bench during the tournament as well, but don’t be for certain he is the answer. Enter freshman center Amir Williams. The soon-to-be-sophomore stands in at 6-foot-11. Sitting behind Sullinger, he didn’t see much action this season, but Buckeye fans took notice when he stepped in against Syracuse in the Elite Eight. With the youth on the bench and the talent to fill the void; the team should be able to make another strong push into the tournament. read more
