Group works to foster inclusive environment

first_imgAfter holding a diversity discussion two weeks ago, three experts on campus diversity, Emerald Woodberry, Dr. David Moss and Iris Outlaw, addressed Student Senate during Wednesday’s meeting. Woodberry, academic and university affairs commissioner for the Black Student Association, began the conversation by updating the group on what her organization has been working on. “We have spent our time trying to gather information from constituents of Call to Action, especially things that happened over the summer that we weren’t aware of,” Woodberry said.  “We have focused on putting committees together since a lot of Call to Action students from last year graduated. We’re actually still recruiting by contacting the multicultural commissioners from each dorm.” She also spoke about her work with Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) to enact initiatives conceived of during last spring’s Call to Action Town Hall. “NDSP went through an increase in cultural competency training,” Woodberry said.  “We made a pamphlet with information on reporting and tried to write it in a fair tone rather than one of authorities looking down on the students. Also, for increased accountability of officers they will start carrying business cards so students will know and be able to contact who they interacted with.” Moss, from the Office of Student Affairs, described his office’s current project – a one-stop website for reporting any type of issue. “Call to Action had a great deal of confusion on how to report, to whom, where to go … this way we’ll have one website called reportit.nd.edu to report different instances of issues that don’t fit into the Notre Dame environment,” Moss said.    He is also currently inspecting campus websites, working on amending course syllabi and continuing to encourage student involvement. “We commissioned an internal and external audit of Notre Dame websites, basically to see whether or not they are welcoming and inclusive,” Moss said.  “We are also working very hard to include on every course syllabus a phrase about valuing an inclusive environment.”nLater in the meeting, Student body vice president Katie Rose transitioned to a discussion about students’ opinions of the Career Center. “Our major concern is that for a lot of students the Career Center seems only for business jobs, so if you’re not interested in strictly business or graduate school you’re kind of lost on where to go,” Rose said. “We want to centralize all opportunities on campus because a lot of the students that fall into the gap I just mentioned are going to other institutions on campus. We would like better communication and referrals between all these places.” Chief of staff Katie Baker said the amount of resources available for students applying to graduate school is also very limited. Keenan Hall senator John Vernon works for the academic affairs committee and voiced other student concerns. “The days surrounding the career fair, students were really upset about Go Irish and the Career Center. They felt that it wasn’t helpful or that they didn’t know how to use it,” Vernon said. “There was also feedback from students in the College of Science that the Career Center is not really for them, that, like Katie said, it’s more geared towards business students.” McGlinn Hall senator Ali Wellmanmsaid girls in her dorm have an overall positive view of the Career Center. “The McGlinn girls really love the Career Center because of the mock interviews, especially the College of Science girls,” Wellman said. “However they said it was irksome to call in and make an appointment. Maybe they could make it online like the Writing Center and just have us fill out a timeslot. That would be really convenient.” Monica Daegele, Farley Hall senator, provided perspective from the College of Engineering. “There is a whole engineering career fair of its owe,” Daegele said. “However, it comes right at the beginning of the year, so a lot of students hastily put together resumes and didn’t really know what they were getting into.” Class of 2014 president Lizzie Helpling concluded the conversation on a positive note. “Speaking as someone who very recently decided on a major, the Career Center was an invaluable resource,” Helpling said. “I think they are a completely untapped resource for many people. They have job shadows for every single job available. I think what people don’t realize is what they could find out if they just went and talked to somebody there, you just have to go find them.”last_img read more

Lessons of the Week! Liza Minnelli, Jake Gyllenhaal & More

first_img Thank God it’s Friday…and LaChanze’s birthday! Let’s celebrate both by watching this clip on repeat and taking a look back on this past week’s goings on the Great White Way. A lot has happened in the past seven days, from a Star Wars queen turned pilot to a Great Comet star’s scandalacious confession. Study up below with the Lessons of the Week!Gyllenhaal Hasn’t Moved On from SundayJake Gyllenhaal’s Broadway stint in Burn This was postponed, but don’t worry: he knows to keep moving on. Instead, he’ll open the very same theater with Sunday in the Park with George, reprising his role from the recent City Center concert. When God closes a stage door, he opens a blank canvas. Or something. Well, there are definitely worse things.Don’t Hop in Lesli Margherita’s StarfighterLesli Margherita is great at many things: vlogging, being loud, stalking hot garbage men, etc. One thing she should probably leave off her special skills? Drone piloting. At a Star Wars event, the Matilda queen flew a toy drone—and promptly crashed it into a wall. She may be a Jedi, but next time she offers you a ride in her Starfighter, maybe you should have an excuse ready.Liza Brought Kisses to Jersey BoysJersey Boys has had its fair share of visits from stars over the years, but only one of them has insisted on kissing everyone in the cast (to our knowledge). According to cast member Peter Gregus, Liza Minnelli was intent on smooching all the Jersey Boys and all the Jersey Girls backstage. First medicinal marijuana (allegedly), then kisses…Liza, do you want to stop by Broadway.com HQ?Denée Defied Gravity From Her SeatWhile Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 is Denée Benton’s Broadway debut, she’s technically sung on the Great White Way before. The newcomer revealed that the first show she saw on Broadway was Wicked, and she sang along from the audience the entire time. If you’re going to sing at the Gershwin, Denée, at least do it on stage. We’re sure you’d look great in green.Eric Petersen Rocked as ReaganSchool of Rock frontman Eric Petersen was first bitten by the acting bug in elementary school. His role? Ronald Reagan. This week, he even offered up a taste of the transcendent performance. Hey, if we can get a hip-hop musical about Alexander Hamilton, surely we can get a rock musical about Ronald Reagan. That definitely doesn’t sound like a terrible idea at all.Alysha Umphress Is an MTA QueenAt the In Transit opening, we learned Alysha Umphress has a solid fallback career option: MTA announcer. Not only was she well versed in the subway map, but she also shared an uncanny impression of a muffled conductor. Why did it seem like no one else knew which trains were at what station, though? Are you too fancy for the MTA, Frankie James Grande? Because Christine Baranski isn’t.Janet McTeer Can Probably Slay VampiresBefore she was Broadway’s La Marquise de Merteuil, she was Madame de Buffy. While discussing her stint in Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Janet McTeer shared her old nickname back at the Donmar Warehouse, alluding to her Cruel Intentions counterpart Sarah Michelle Gellar. We have no doubt McTeer would be able to slay any and all vampires…and belt “Something to Sing About.”Morrible Needs a Production CompanyLast week, we learned that when she’s not on stage in Wicked or vlogging with Call Me Madame, Sheryl Lee Ralph moonlights as a film critic. This week, she’s playing the role of a film producer. Ralph bonded with Glinda standby Ginna Claire Mason and revealed she’s going to front a Doris Day biopic for her. This could be the start of something big. Redefining Diva Studios, perhaps?Sherie Made Her Son Proud in a Weird WaySherie Renee Scott has played rich Upper East Side socialite, a rich Spanish socialite, and now, “the old whore with a heart of gold” (her words). The Front Page standout recalled that while she was initially horrified by what her 12-year-old son would think, he was “proud” of her for playing a sex worker and even helped her rehearse lines. That’s a little weird, but hey, it’s 2016.Cheno & J. Lo Are Still Girls Next DoorKristin Chenoweth wowed us all on NBC’s Hairspray Live!, and Jennifer Lopez has some big shoes to fill in next year’s Bye Bye Birdie. (But really, how big can Chenoweth’s shoes be?) The two snapped an adorable pic together, reuniting after working on the cinematic masterpiece The Boy Next Door. We’re sure the 4’11” Mistress of All Evil had some pro tips. Listen to Vicky; she’s a vice principal!

Notify parents over sensitive issues

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRe Nov. 16 article, “Parent: Planned Parenthood program not for us”: Viviane Parsons’ objections to her daughter being subjected to Planned Parenthood’s teaching on how she might express her sexual feelings are well-founded. As a parent, I can identify strongly with Parsons’ desire to protect her child from any instruction on condom use or other misguided teachings.Planned Parenthood and its ilk apparently believe that teenagers don’t have the strength and integrity to avoid premarital sex. Of course, teenagers who have been appropriately informed can practice abstinence. There is teaching and support from both parents and their peers, who indeed have successfully “navigated the obstacle course” — which is modern society’s distorted assertions about the nature of human sexuality. Peers who have been abstinent are able to affirm that not only is teen chastity possible, but also that enlightened self-control can make a life of abstinence before marriage both a full and ultimately joyous experience.Nowhere in the article do I read that Parsons is insisting that Planned Parenthood be banned from the school system. (There could be a good argument made for this.) Instead, she’s simply asking that Schenectady High School be made accountable and that the appropriate officials alert parents in advance when such classes will be made available for the children.Is this asking too much?Glenn Smith SchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady police reform sessions pivot to onlineSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crashEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusAnderson starts, but Dodgers finish off NLCS winSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcylast_img read more

Japan’s spot LNG prices start to pick up

first_imgMETI’s data shows the arrival-based spot price was also at $3.80/mmBtu rising from last month’s $2.60/mmBtu but substantially down from $7.50/mmBtu recorded in June 2019. For illustration only (Image: NYK LNG) The effects of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic have weighed down on Japan’s spot LNG prices pushing them to record lows in previous months. The average contract price for spot LNG cargoes shipped to Japan in June stood at $3.80/mmBtu, according to data released by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The ministry surveys only spot LNG cargoes purchased by Japanese utilities and other importers. But its still represents a decline when compared to the same month a year ago when the contracted price was $5.5/mmBtu. Japanese spot LNG cargo prices are showing signs of slight recovery following a record drop in May. This is a rise compared to a record low in May when the contracted price reached $2.20 per mmBtu. It excludes cargo deals linked to a particular price index such as the US Henry Hub.last_img read more

United criticised over Moyes

first_img Pellegrini said: “It is a pity for David Moyes because I think he is a very good manager, that is why Manchester United chose him to continue the work that Sir Alex Ferguson did for so many years. “But I don’t know the reasons they have. It is always not good for the club to sack a manager who has a contract who is just starting his work – and very difficult work after Alex Ferguson – and a contract for six years.” Wenger, now far and away the longest-servi ng Premier League manager having taken charge of the north London club in 1996, was dismayed that United had not stuck with Moyes and warned such decisions could have wider consequences. “If you want quality people in any job, you need to give them time to develop and to become good, or people with the quality will not come into our job any more,” he said. “The average (job life) expectancy of an English professional club at the moment is 11 months, and that is quite unstable. Every guy who is married, has a family, will have a big hesitancy before he goes into that game. “That means the quality of the coaching and the quality of the managing is under threat.” Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho said he had spoken to former Everton boss Moyes in the wake of his dismissal, but declined to reveal what was said. Like Wenger, Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood insisted Moyes’ dismissal had come too early and complained that British managers “don’t get a fair crack of the whip”. Sherwood added: “It’s obviously a shame when anyone loses their job and it’s a shame that David hadn’t been given the time. “I think anyone needs the time to imprint their own style on a team and it was a tough job to follow Sir Alex Ferguson.” Hughes expressed disquiet over the circumstances of Moyes’ departure but went on to praise the appointment of Giggs, insisting: ” It’s probably the right appointment, the only appointment given the week that Manchester United have had. “It makes total sense. The knowledge and understanding of the place that he has is invaluable for them at this moment in time.” Bruce, who played alongside Giggs during his time as club captain, believes he could yet edge out high-profile bosses such as Louis van Gaal and Carlo Ancelotti. “There’s been a lot of players who have jumped in – (Pep) Guardiola springs to mind, (Jurgen) Klinsmann springs to mind – big players in big jobs. And the one thing it won’t do is faze Ryan, he’s been at Man Utd all his life,” said the Hull manager. “If they win the next three or four games 4-0 there’ll be a clamour for Ryan I’m sure and you wish him the best of luck.” Solskjaer said he had spoken to Giggs this week and hoped United could do the Welsh club a favour, with their next two games coming against two of Cardiff’s relegation rivals. Solskjaer added: “Giggsy has got all the attributes to become a top, top manager one day, definitely. “When he was a player – he still is a player – he chooses his words very carefully. “He is not one of those that always speaks every single day, but when he speaks you listen. It has always been that way. He commands respect.” Rival Premier League managers have criticised Manchester United’s decision to sack David Moyes just 10 months after replacing Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford. Press Association Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini expressed surprise over the timing of Moyes’ dismissal while Arsene Wenger warned the high turnover of top-flight coaches could affect the quality of coaching in the English game. Meanwhile, a number of former United stars including Steve Bruce, Mark Hughes and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer backed Ryan Giggs to succeed as he prepares to head into his first game as interim player-manager this season. last_img read more

FA fines Hammers

first_img “We would also like to remind all fans attending the match at White Hart Lane that they will be acting as ambassadors for West Ham United and their behaviour should reflect the values and standards of our club. “Working with the Metropolitan Police, the Club will continue to adopt a zero tolerance policy towards any form of discriminatory behaviour and any fan found to be acting inappropriately – including racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic behaviour – will be punished to the full extent of the law and banned from attending matches. “We are rightly proud of our world-famous support home and away and we look forward to the famous “claret and blue army” once again getting behind the team with all their heart and showing the world that following the Hammers means supporting with pride, passion and respect.” Press Association The incident in question occurred after referee Craig Pawson sent off Hammers goalkeeper Adrian just after the hour mark for handling the ball outside of his penalty area. Although the Spaniard’s red card was later overturned on appeal, the FA has announced the club have been punished for the players’ reaction. West Ham have been fined £30,000 by the Football Association for failing to control their players in the recent draw at Southampton. “Following an independent regulatory commission hearing, West Ham United have been fined £30,000 after the club admitted an FA charge of failing to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion,” a statement on the FA’s official website read. “The charge was in relation to an incident which occurred in or around the 61st minute of the game against Southampton on 11 February 2015.” Adrian’s dismissal saw West Ham play with 10 men for the remaining half an hour at St Mary’s – with Sam Allardyce’s side able to hold on for a 0-0 stalemate. Allardyce confirmed immediately after the game that they would appeal the red card and, whilst that proved to be successful, the club have now been hit with a fine for the separate charge. It is the second time this season the Hammers have been punished for failure to control their players following an incident in a 2-1 defeat at Everton which saw both clubs handed the same charge. With a derby against local rivals Tottenham on Sunday, West Ham co-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold have issued a letter to fans asking for their behaviour to remain exemplary at White Hart Lane. Previous matches between the two sides have been tarnished by anti-Semitic chants from a minority of West Ham supporters, with Gold and Sullivan calling for travelling fans to be at their best this weekend. “Sam and the team have been working hard on the training pitch this week to put last week’s wrongs right and Sunday’s game offers an exciting opportunity for us to bounce back (from defeat at West Brom),” they said in a statement on West Ham’s website. last_img read more
