WSA kicks off Body Love Week on Monday

first_imgRachel Carroll, a junior majoring in creative writing, led a workshop in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center Monday night that was designed to influence the way students think about their bodies as part of ‘Body Love Week’ Maya Dondonyan | Daily TrojanThe USC Women’s Student Assembly launched their annual Body Love Week, a series of events and panels that seeks to promote a healthy body image, on Monday. In previous years, the celebration of Body Love Week tended to be mainly educational, but this year, WSA wants to focus on the healing aspect of it and the creation of safe spaces for students to share their experiences.Vanessa Diaz, the director of Body Love Week, said students deserve a place to heal on campus.“Acknowledging that there was trauma in regards to the way you treated your body is the first step,” she said. “The next step is realizing that you deserve help.”Critical of other “love your body” campaigns like those from Victoria’s Secret or Dove, Diaz wants to do more than just tell people that they should love themselves.“What I wanted to do was not force people to love their body because that’s very difficult to do,” she said. “I want to see body love as a process, with good days and bad days and days in between. Something that we’re constantly working toward, which is a very difficult thing to do.”Diaz also commented on how important it is to dismantle the standards of beauty that the nation has set for USC.Maya Dondonyan | Daily Trojan“[We need to] realize that students in this University are diverse,” she said. “What the country sees as a stereotypical USC student is a very fit and ‘hot’ student. That is very damaging to students that don’t see themselves like that.”Monday’s kickoff event featured Rachel Carroll, a junior majoring in creative writing and gender studies, who led a writing workshop that focused on helping women realize that there are multiple steps to be taken in the process of learning to love their bodies.“[The workshop] focuses on realizing that there are multiple avenues of approach for body love,” she said.Carroll had the audience write three different pieces in which they had to analyze specific parts of their body in terms of how they found them useful, how they loved them or how they hated them. Jordan Fowler, undergraduate student body vice president, found the exercise helpful.“Usually [when I get complimented] I credit it to something else or justify it, instead of just owning it. And this exercise made me realize that,” she said.Diaz then led a discussion in which people shared what they thought body love meant.Maya Dondonyan | Daily Trojan“Body love is something that is always fluid for me,” Diaz said, “One thing that I’ve learned is that body love is a process.”Shyann Murphy, executive director of the WSA, shared her own experience dealing with learning to love her body.“I realized that the only images that I’d seen [were] images of women that were extremely thin and fit all these standard definitions of beauty that are not actually real,” she said. “Once I started seeing people who looked like me in real life, I realized that people who aren’t thin can also have good lives. Shifting that narrative was really good for me.”Tessa Meurer, a sophomore majoring in global health, recalled an incident where someone defended her after a man catcalled her in the street.“It reminded me that body love is remembering I’m worth more than what I look like,” she said.WSA has events planned every night of this week. Tuesday’s “Tools for Healing” is a panel of speakers put together in collaboration with other organizations on campus, in which they will feature T-FFED, a Los Angeles-based organization that works to combat eating disorders.Wednesday’s “It’s a Process” will be a screening of the movie Civil War Sickness, a short film about an individual taking steps to recover from an eating disorder. Thursday’s event is a ‘Self-Compassion Workshop’ in the Engemann Student Health Center in which they aim to provide students with the tools necessary to practice self-compassion. The closing event will be an open mic night in Ground Zero Performance Cafe Friday night.For Diaz, the hardest aspect about planning the week’s events was having to face her own struggles with loving her body.“In planning the week, I had to interrogate my own journey and that’s very difficult to do,” she said. “If I wanted to create those spaces for other people, I would have to create them for myself first.”Though the WSA aims to help particularly women in their path towards healing, anyone is welcome.“We want to make sure everyone can talk about their experiences and create and environment where everyone feels safe,” Diaz said. “Everyone can come to Body Love Week — body love is for everyone.”last_img read more

Grant, Oliseh, Mashaba speak of “difficult” 2018 World Cup qualification

first_imgGhana coach Avram Grant says the group stages of the qualifiers to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia will be difficult. The qualifying draw held in St.Petersburg, on Saturday had the Black Stars placed on a bye from the first round but will begin their campaign in November against the winner of the Comoros v Lesotho playoff over two legs. “It will be difficult but we have a good team,” Grant said.Avram Grant was appointed by the Ghana FA in a 27-month deal last November with the ultimate aim of building a more formidable Black Stars team to qualify and participate at the Russia World Cup.Eto’o wishes Cameroon wellCameroon legend Samuel Eto’o (above) has wished his countrymen a successful qualification campaign.The 34-year-old striker, who was one of the special assistants at the official qualifying draw in St. Petersburg on Saturday, is the top scoring Cameroon international of all-time, but he is unlikely to feature in the campaign as coach of the side Volker Finke has recently focused on a new generation of Indomitable Lions. Eto\’o appears to have moved on himself, wishing his national team good luck.The four-time African champions drew a bye in the first round as one of the 27 top ranked teams in Africa, but will meet either Somalia or Niger in the second round. “Cameroon’s chances are wide open, like most of the other teams.\” Eto\’o said in St. Petersburg.”Now, we know that you may be the favourite and still not make it through. I hope this will not be the case, though, because we have a great team and a group of young players who are willing to write history. I wish them all the luck in the world.” Oliseh expresses optimismNigeria coach Sunday Oliseh (above) believes there is cause to be optimistic about his team\’s qualification chances.The three-time African champions drew a bye in the first round as one of the 27 top ranked teams in Africa, but will meet either of two minnows Djibouti or Swaziland over two legs in the second round in November.”Of course, I am happy with the draw. We are not playing the first round, which is a preliminary round and which we knew before the draw,” Oliseh told the official Nigera FA website.”We will also be playing the first leg of the second round away which means we have an advantage of playing the more crucial return leg at home in front of our fans.” However the former Super Eagles captain warned against complacency, promising that his team will fight every opponent at full strength.”Djibouti and Swaziland need to be given the respect that they deserve and either of them that we face in the second round will not be underrated. We respect every team and we will battle anyone that emerges with our full strength.”With the draw now concluded, we can safely say that the race to Russia has officially started.”I am optimistic we will run this race very well. We will give it our very best and pray it will be good enough to get us one of the five slots available for Africa,” Oliseh remarked. Mashaba talks toughMany followers of African football may feel South Africa have their work cut out for them against Angola, but Bafana Bafana coach Ephraim Shakes Mashaba (above) is confident his charges can handle the threat posed by their neighbours.Both were drawn to meet in the second round of qualifying after being handed byes in the first round.The winner over two legs will advance to the group stage of the qualifiers.”I think in all fairness, it was a fair draw. One could not have asked for a better draw than this one,” Mashaba told the SAFA website. “We have played Angola on a number of occasions, although the outcomes were close, we have had an upper hand.”It (draw) was more or less what we expected; you cannot reach the World Cup finals without facing tough teams. One thing for sure, we will prepare thoroughly against Angola; we won\’t underestimate them.”The first leg of the tie will be played on October 11 in Angola, while South Africa will host the decisive return leg two weeks later.The draw FIRST ROUNDSomalia v NigerEritrea v BotswanaSouth Sudan v MauritaniaSeychelles v BurundiGambia v NamibiaLiberia v Guinea BissauSao Tome e Principe v EthiopiaCentral African Republic v MadagascarChad v Sierra LeoneMauritius v KenyaComoros v LesothoTanzania v MalawiDjibouti v Swaziland SECOND ROUNDSomalia/Niger v CameroonCentral African Republic/Madagascar v SenegalSouth Sudan/Mauritania v TunisiaMauritius/Kenya v Cape Verde IslandsGambia/Namibia v GuineaTanzania/Malawi v AlgeriaSao Tome e Principe/ Ethiopia v Congo BrazzavilleSudan v ZambiaChad/Sierra Leone v EgyptLibya v RwandaComoros/Lesotho v GhanaMorocco v Equatorial GuineaDjibouti/Swaziland v NigeriaMozambique v GabonEritrea/Botswana v MaliBenin v Burkina FasoSeychelles/Burundi v DR CongoTogo v UgandaLiberia/Guinea Bissau v Ivory CoastAngola v South Africa–Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmith. Get more updates on Facebook/Twitter with the #JoySports hashtag Reacting to the draw from St. Petersburg, Black Stars coach Avram Grant who once coached his native Israel in a previous World Cup qualifying campaign admits to an unusual process adapted in choosing representatives for Africa. “I think the system for Africa is a little bit new for me so we know only the first game and then we know we will go to the group stages,” he said.center_img “In any case, I think in Africa, all the group stages will be very difficult because it contains a lot of good teams and only less than 10% have qualified. If you compare to South America, 50% of the teams have qualified; in Europe, I think over 30 (%). The former Chelsea coach whose team have been to the past three World Cup tournaments is however confident his team will pass the test to make their fourth World Cup appearance. 20 teams are expected to advance from the second round knockout matches. They will then be drawn in five groups of four from which the group winners will secure their tickets to represent Africa at the World Cup in Russia from June 14 to July 15, 2018.last_img read more

Sumner County Attorney has yet to determine whether Jason Schoemann will be charged with Sunday morning stabbing

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Sumner County Attorney Kerwin Spencer said he will be sifting through a significant amount of reports and witness testimonies to determine whether or not to formally charge Jason Schoemann, 43, of Wellington, who is currently in custody for the alleged stabbing of his son.Jason SchoemannSchoemann is currently being held in Sumner County jail on suspicion of possible felony charges of aggravated battery and domestic battery. In the next 24 hours, Spencer expects to determine whether or not to charge Schoemann for the stabbing that occurred in the 1100 block of South Washington in Wellington, Sunday morning.Jason’s 22-year-old son, Austin Schoemann, is currently at Via Christi-St. Francis being treated for knife wounds to his chest and shoulder. Spencer said Austin is expected to recover, but will probably stay in the hospital for the rest of this week.Spencer said he will determine whether or not the evidence shows that Jason Schoemann aggressively pursued his son in the stabbing, or if he was reacting in self defense.He said he will be reviewing eight one-hour audio tapes containing testimonials from four to five witnesses, plus read the lengthy official police report.“It’s a complicated situation,” Spencer said. “I have to determine to what extent was the father protecting himself from eminent danger or if he was making unlawful contact (against his son).Spencer would not delve into the specifics of why the incident took place.“If I make charges, then a lot of that will come out in the court complaint and I can respond to those public charges,” Spencer said. “If I don’t make charges, then I still feel it is appropriate that I owe the public some kind of explanation to why I decided not to prosecute the case.”The Wellington Police were called to the S. Washington residence at 3:18 a.m. Sunday morning and learned that two adult males – 43 and 22 years old and identified as a father and son – were involved in a physical altercation where the son was stabbed in the upper chest.Wellington EMS transported the Austin Schoemann from the scene and subsequently to Wichita for treatment. The 43-year-old male was transported and treated at SRMC and subsequently booked into Sumner County jail on the suspicion of aggravated and domestic battery.Spencer said he expects to visit with Police Chief Tracy Heath before taking the audio tapes and police report home to determine what will be his next course of action.He said the testimony of Austin’s mother, Jennifer, which witnessed the incident, will be a huge determining factor on what course of action he decides to take.Follow us on Twitter.

Chimy Ávila: “Doc, I’m broken”

first_imgInside the fatality, the Argentine got rid of the so-called “triad”, which involves the sum of the anterior cruciate ligament lesions, the internal meniscus, and the internal lateral, so that the injury of the forward “It has not turned out to be so serious.” Pending the operation in the next few days, Bertó estimates that the recovery will range between 6 and 8 months, since “each patient is a world” and will depend in the first place on the fact that the surgical results are positive, “since any surgery runs the risk of being complicated; but with a good surgical team, those risks can be minimized.” “Doc, I’m broken” were the words with the that Chimy Avila received to the doctor of the Osasuna Athletic Club, Juan Bertó, after breaking the anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee in the 55th minute of the match played last night against Levante and that will make him Miss the rest of the season. Bertó explained in an interview with Efe that he lived the “unfortunate play” from the bench and when he realized that Chimy raised his hand asking for assistance “Without moving, they were practically aware that” something important was happening. “” When we arrived at the place where the Chimy was lying, the physiotherapist told us that he had broken, “said the doctor, who described the first moments after the injury, moments he took the opportunity to check “that the knee was not stable, so we decided to opt for the change.”“From the bench we didn’t have the ability to see exactly what happened, but we did sense that a lot of damage had been done.”Bertó said about the fateful moment, adding that they could not calculate the extent of the injury until they talked to the player. And has remembered cases like those of the Osasuna Sergio players Herrera, Unai García and Kike Barja, setting an example to the latter, which officially returned to the pitch 6 months and 15 days after getting injured in a workout. “He accepted it with fortitude, serenity, and with an improper maturity of a 25-year-old player,” said the doctor, while ensuring that Chimy Avila has “the support of his family and his wife, who has not separated from him at any time. ” The recovery process will consist of several phases, as noted, and the first will be to work to recover mobility. Then you must exercise muscle strength and physical tone, and finally integrate into group dynamics smoothly after the first 5 or 6 months have passed.The specialist in Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology Clinic University of Navarra, Andrés Valentí Azcárate, will be the person in charge of operating the player, who will perform “ligament replacement on the other of similar mechanical and physiological characteristics “ in a intervention that will be decided on what type based on what they show the images”. “For the maturity, the wisdom and the desire to work that Chimy has shown, as soon as he is training with the group, I think it will surprise us all, getting stronger,” said Bertó, who is convinced that “the time will put its place. ““Yesterday all the team members, despite having achieved a fundamental victory, the first thing they did when they arrived at the locker room was worrying about the chimy because physical recovery is so important as the mental or emotional “and hence I stressed the importance that will have the support that the team gives to the Argentine forward.last_img read more

Workers’ comp payouts dropping

first_imgChief Deputy County Counsel Donovan Main said a $3million sheriff’s settlement, a $4.5million medical malpractice case and $2.3 million in legal fees in a hospital closure case drove up the costs. “Normally, we don’t have that combination of large-magnitude cases,” Main said. Risk Manager Rocky Armfield said the $61 million drop in workers’ comp costs is significant because the county has more than 95,000 employees and about 24,500 open worker’s compensation claims. The county has aggressively worked to combat fraud and abuse and has encouraged employees to come back to work to perform light duties. The county Fire Department also has embraced a Fitness For Life program that offers firefighters, lifeguards and their nonunion management a 3 percent bonus for participating. At the Sheriff’s Department, workers’ compensation costs have dropped from $100 million in 2003-04 to $84 million last fiscal year. “We have been aggressively pursuing anything that looks like or might be fraud,” said Chief Bill McSweeney, who oversees the Risk Management and Internal Affairs divisions. Sheriff Lee Baca hired 10 retired detectives to conduct surveillance on employees and McSweeney said the department has reviewed more than 1,000 cases. McSweeney said the detectives’ work is sending a “big message” to employees. “When we call somebody up and say, `We have reason to believe you were playing basketball at the park last week and you told us you couldn’t walk. Which one is it?’ We often get a response of `I’m feeling much better now. I’ll come back to work.”‘ troy.anderson@dailynews.com (213) 974-8985160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The annual risk management report found workers’ compensation costs dropped from $324 million in 2003-04 to $263 million last fiscal year. The report also found the county’s total liability for workers’ compensation costs dropped 35 percent in that period to $2.4 billion. But while the county’s legal expenses fell from $49 million to $45 million in that period, settlements and judgment payments jumped from $26 million to $38 million. For the second consecutive year, workers’ compensation and litigation costs have dropped in Los Angeles County, where officials have cracked down on abuses and boosted wellness efforts, such as offering fitness bonuses for firefighters and lifeguards. After paying out $408 million in fiscal 2003-04, the county’s total costs dropped to $358 million in 2005-06, officials said Thursday. Chief Administrative Officer David Janssen said county and state workers’ compensation reforms and stepped-up attention contributed to the drop. “Departments specifically identified risk managers that we can work with, focusing on return-to-work programs and working as a whole organization to continue to monitor and drive down the costs,” he said. last_img

Peddlers facing strict new law

first_img“Ice cream vendors can work within the framework of the ordinance, but long-term vending is a problem in areas not designed for long-term activities,” Hirsch said, noting that some peddlers have been staying in residential locations for hours with no restrooms or trash cans to contain littering. Councilwoman Barbra Williamson said she has seen problems from street peddlers increasing in Simi Valley over the years, particularly on weekends and holidays. “On Valentine’s Day or on a long weekend, you have people selling flowers, rugs, flags, shirts, strawberries, you name it,” she said. Williamson said she sympathizes with vendors who might have trouble finding spots on private property, but said the ordinance is clearly supported by local residents and business owners. Williamson and other council members noted that people who operate their businesses from shops pay rent, insurance costs and taxes. “If someone can go onto a street corner and sell the same things with no taxes, undercutting the businesses, it’s not fair,” she said. “The small businesses in this community are our lifeline. We have to support them.” Police are expected to start warning violators and issuing citations March 15, when the law goes into effect. People selling products from vehicles, such as ice cream vendors, will be allowed to remain at each stop no longer than 10 minutes. Vendors are prohibited from trying to sell anything to people in their cars on any public street. The ordinance also prohibits people from trying to sell things to people waiting in lines or seated in public areas where they would be considered a captive audience. And it prohibits all peddling from nonmotorized vehicles on public sidewalks and by anyone sitting, standing or walking on public rights-of-way, including sidewalks, grassy areas and medians. “We are going to mainly concern ourselves with people who are creating continual recurring problems,” said Sgt. Dave Livingstone, a spokesman for the Simi Valley Police Department. eric.leach@dailynews.com (805) 583-7602160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The way some vendors move from place to place in and out of the community has also raised concerns about the potential for sales of defective or otherwise misrepresented goods. David Hirsch, Simi Valley’s city attorney, said the law was based in part on similar ordinances in other cities. “It’s a strict ordinance, but not unique,” he said. It does not apply to private property, so it would not affect bake sales at schools and churches, or a lemonade stand in someone’s front yard. “It’s not an outright prohibition,” he said, noting that such people as ice cream vendors will still be able to conduct business on city streets and people can still sell things such as Christmas trees or pumpkins on private property, with the owner’s permission and temporary city permits. SIMI VALLEY – A strict new local law against street peddling will go into effect next month to stop increasing numbers of itinerant vendors who sell goods from vehicles on city streets and from carts set up along sidewalks. The primary reason for the new ordinance is to maintain public safety, but the peddlers have also been creating a growing nuisance for residents and business operators, city officials said. “I think what is happening today is conducive to crime,” said City Councilman Steve Sojka, citing the potential for black-market sales. “This has nothing to do with oppressing the poor,” he added, responding to critics who complained that the law targeted poor people who couldn’t afford to establish stable businesses. The vendors have been damaging landscaping, trespassing, invading people’s privacy, creating health hazards, causing parking and traffic problems, and increasing the danger of vehicle crashes and injuries, city officials said. last_img read more

A 920-foot-long “river” in which visitors can float in inner tubes is called Big Rock River. Oasis Park’s 25-yard by 25-meter swimming pool will open for the public on Memorial Day weekend. The 33-acre Oasis Park, on Avenue S at 40th Street East, is one of two “super parks” created in a $43 million park improvement effort. The other was an expanded Marie Kerr Park, which gained a swimming pool and an amphitheater. Oasis Park’s 16,800-square-foot recreation center contains a gymnasium big enough for a regulation basketball court or two smaller courts, a dance and fitness studio with wood flooring, a youth game area, a lounge, a kitchen and a multipurpose hall that can be divided into three separate rooms. Operating the water park is expected to cost about $1 million per summer, city officials said. Officials hope to attract 125,000 visitors a summer and to have admission fees cover the costs. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgClub Notes – Naomh Adhamhnáin – 18.04.11The Seniors got their first win of the League campaign away to Gaoth Dobhair last Saturday but in a reversal of fortune, the Reserves lost their first game of the year. Both teams will have a Championship warm-up this Monday with home games against Dungloe in the Park, times to be confirmed.The Junior Men Footballers still await the beginning of their League and the word seems to be that it will be aone round of games and not home and away, which is very disappointing as it will not offer many games of football over the season. Thanks you to everyone that turned up to help at last week’s Bag Pack in Tesco. In particular Ciaran Maguire and his U-14 Boys, Brian McGeehin and his U-12 Boys, Jim Clarke, Celine McMenamin, Anne Forde and Tracey McVeigh who all put in big shifts to help out.There was a Minor Board meeting on Monday night in the Clubhouse. At a fairly uneventful meeting, the main topic now that the underage season is up and running was the buses. All managers have been sent a template to help them collect their bus money, so please use it or make your own.The Minor Boys Footballers had a good win over MacCumhaills last week, they have a home game against Malin this Friday in the Park at 7:30pm.The U-16 Boys footballers will play their rescheduled game with Termon this Friday in the Park with  a 12 noon throw-in.

Magnificent achievement for this very young team who had to play 3 straight games in a row without any substitutes. The U-12 Hurlers had a sucessful Blitz on Sunday winning 2 out of 3 games. The U-14 Camogie team had their County Feile on Sunday. This very young team produced strong performances against the eventual winners Burt.
