He gave other reasons for pulling the programme, in particular, the way Galán spoke on the air to Carlos Barba, the head of the state human rights commission. Galán had accused Barba in an interview of being “over-cautious” in his approach to a prostitute’s murder.”This is all very strange because I talked to Carlos Barba and he isn’t the one who asked for the programme to be stopped,” Galán said. “I think the real reason is that my programme upset people (…) The subjects covered and even its name bothered some people at the university (…) I think it was a very personal decision taken by just one individual. It’s not Guadalajara university, because the university never censored me.” Newslast_img read more

Tallulah Fest and River Clean Up Recap

first_imgTallulah Fest, the annual kayaking festival situated at the Chattooga River Resort on the Georgia/South Carolina border, is billed as “one of the wildest parties in the southeast.” From what our new friends at the festival told us – that is absolutely true.The festival usually coincides with the Tallulah Gorge whitewater release in the spring, drawing kayakers from across the country.  This year, however, the whitewater release didn’t happen, and the festival took a different turn.Earlier this March, Southern Company, who manages the dam and its releases, announced that they would postpone this springs’ release and perform emergency maintenance on the dam’s spillway. But where there’s a will there’s a party, and party they did. Festival-goers still showed up ready for tunes, brews, and homemade kayaking movies. The laid back festival went off without a hitch and lasted far later than we did. At one point (we think around 4:00 AM) we woke up to a campsite bluegrass jam just up the hill.We love a good party but we had bigger fish to fry. We were excited to wake up and lead our first river clean-up as the Live Outside and Play team. In the morning a group of water-loving kayakers followed us to a popular put-in on the Chattooga river. We were told the area sees a lot of traffic and were expecting the worst, but to our delight (and the delight of those who tagged along), we actually had a difficult time finding trash! We spent several hours canvassing the river bank and the area surrounding the highway We came away with far less trash than we anticipated. It was a rewarding morning for all of us and the locals showed us a lot of love. Plenty of tan-faced boaters came up just to say hello and show their appreciation. _________________________________________________________________Stay up-to-date with all-things Live Outside and Play by following our Instagram and Facebook feeds!

Andy Murray, with eye toward U.S. Open, plots singles return beforehand

first_imgAndy Murray could return to singles action in mid-August at the Cincinnati Masters with an eye toward playing at the U.S. Open.The former world No. 1 hasn’t played a singles match since a first-round loss to Roberto Bautista Agut at the Australian Open in January, with Murray undergoing resurfacing surgery on his right hip shortly afterward. He made his comeback in doubles action alongside Feliciano Lopez at the Queen’s Club Championships — the pair won the competition — and Murray has played in two more tournaments since while also linking up with Serena Williams in the mixed doubles at Wimbledon.Murray will partner this week with his brother Jamie at the Citi Open in Washington, and he admitted he is close to a singles comeback too.”In terms of how I’m moving and feeling and pulling up the next day from these practices, I’m really happy with where I’m at. I think I’m quite close,” the three-time Grand Slam champion told reporters (via the ATP Tour’s website).”If I was to play a tournament in a few weeks’ time, I could do it. But it’s just to get to maybe where I want to get to, I’ll need to play matches and get a little bit more work done in the gym on my cardio.” From Eastbourne to the @CitiOpen…@andy_murray travels the @ATP_Tour handing out selfie lessons pic.twitter.com/5SdYkNYP5V— LTA (@the_LTA) July 29, 2019The singles tournament in Cincinnati begins on August 11, 15 days before the U.S. Open starts, and Murray admits he would need to play a singles tuneup to be involved at Flushing Meadows.”Best-case scenario probably would be Cincinnati, and then if I wasn’t able to play in Cincinnati, there’s a good chance I would probably wait until after New York because I wouldn’t want my first tournament to be playing best-of-five [sets],” he said.Between the Citi Open and Cincinnati Masters, Murray will be reunited with Lopez at the Rogers Cup in Montreal.last_img read more

At stake this weekend is a €1m prize fund with the eventual winners receiving €100,000 each.Now English club amateurs can get involved in the six-hole action – and play their way to the ultimate prize of an involvement in the European Tour’s GolfSixes tournament in 2019.Details of a national GolfSixes competition for club members will be announced in the coming weeks. The short format game will also be showcased with an invitational event at England Golf Week at Frilford Heath Golf Club, Oxfordshire, in August.Keith Pelley, Chief Executive of the European Tour, said: “When we first began developing the concept of GolfSixes, we knew it had the potential to be a format that could inspire male and female players of all ages and abilities to either take up the game or play more often, and we’re delighted that England Golf share that vision.“Through partners like the Golf Foundation, the GolfSixes League format has already been adopted across the UK and Europe and has proved immensely popular with young players across Europe with programmes up and running in Denmark, Belgium, France and the Netherlands. Rolling it out to adult amateur players is the next logical step and we’re very excited to be working with England Golf to attract more people to our wonderful game.”England Golf Chief Executive Nick Pink commented: “We are very excited to be working so closely with the European Tour and forging even stronger links between the professional and amateur game.“We love the way the European Tour is developing GolfSixes, creating an international competition which brings men and women together at the top end of the game.“It’s a bright, modern, alternative format which will absolutely work at club level and will appeal to new audiences. In particular, we think it will be enjoyed by people who are short of time, or who are new to golf and to competition and by those who are getting back into the game after a break.“Above all, GolfSixes is fun and it’s showing that golf is changing to suit the needs of different people and their lifestyles.”GolfSixes has already captured the imagination of youngsters across the country who were involved in a pilot project run last year by the Golf Foundation and supported by England Golf with Sport England funding.The charity pioneered the GolfSixes League, which will grow this year to involve youngsters from 125 clubs across the UK.

Holy Cross Academy Debuts in Fall

first_imgRUMSON – When Holy Cross School opens its doors in September it will have a new name and a renewed focus on modern, Catholic education. By Elizabeth Wulfhorst “Enrollment is robust and sustainable for a selective Catholic grammar school,” said Manning, “and steps are being taken to position the school for measured growth in the years to come.” He said tuition will “likely increase slightly each year at a similar rate to that over the last decade,” citing “unpredictable” insurance costs as one thing challenging the budgets of many institutions. Parents were madeaware of all the changes tothe school in a letter fromthe administration, followedby an open informationalmeeting. Makin explained the importance of the foundation as a fundraising body. “The school is still a parish school and still part of the diocese of Trenton,” Makin said, but the foundation will be used to “build up a nest egg and support Catholic education in the Rumson community.” That fund would be used for long-term projects like facilities improvements and scholarships or financial aid for students. As in the past, the school’sPTA will raise supplementalfunds for specific projects orpurchases, Makin said, butthose funds must be usedwithin the school year. Thefoundation allows the schoolto focus on long-term givingand fundraising in supportof the Rumson community. Also being introduced isa new virtue-based Catholicapproach to discipline andconflict resolution. Manning said he hopes many more generations will be able to benefit from a Holy Cross Academy education. center_img “We’re seeing a lot of change in education on the whole and even more in Catholic education,” said Teresa Makin, Holy Cross Academy’s marketing director. “Renaming the school gave us a chance to reset and refocus and make changes in a positive way.” “Everyone is very excited about the positive changes taking place in the Academy to ensure a Catholic education at Holy Cross parish remains a mainstay of our parish,” said the Rev. Michael Manning, pastor for Holy Cross Church. Now called Holy Cross Academy, the school has implemented an entirely new math curriculum with new textbooks for all kindergarten through eighth-grade students. A Project Lead the Way S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) curriculum will add additional weekly S.T.E.M. classes to the already daily science and weekly technology classes. Project Lead The Way is a nonprofit organization that develops S.T.E.M. curricula for schools. “Above all we want tobe an excellent Catholicschool,” said Makin. In addition to the changes in name and curriculum, the school has established the Holy Cross Rumson Education Foundation “to support the current and future needs of Catholic education in Rumson,” according to a press release. Holy Cross Academy will host its first open house from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Friday, Oct. 11.last_img read more

Saina to skip nationals next month

first_imgSaina Nehwal will miss the senior national badminton championships in Rohtak from January 3-10, since the meet will clash with the Super Series finals, which get underway in Taipei on January 5.Speaking to MAIL TODAY, the Hyderabadi, who won the Hong Kong Super Series meet on Sunday, said the clash of dates with the season- ending Super Series event was the reason for her missing the nationals.”The fact that I have to play in the Super Series final is very important for my rankings. This year I skipped five such events and as a result could not finish higher up.”But then, I had to do this since winning gold at the Asian Games and the Commonwealth Games was my top priority,” she said.Saina, who arrived in Hyderabad late on Monday, said that she was happy with the way she executed her tactics in the final against Wang Shixian of China.”I am extremely happy that I was able to play my best in the final against her (Shixian). She is one of the best players in the world and I am happy that I could win despite losing the opening game,” Saina said.Saina also felt that all the emphasis she had laid on improving her fitness has paid off.”More than anything else, I would credit my success this year to my fitness. I think I have never been so fit before this in my career.”I have been working very hard on this aspect and it was because of this that I could outlast Shixian in the decider,” she said.advertisementDespite losing the opener, Saina said she knew the match was not going to slip out of her hands.”I was confident that I could win this match. I had worked out my tactics with Baskar Babu (coach who accompanied her to Hong Kong).”We knew that we were in for a long match. And once I had won the second game, I knew I was in with a chance. She was making uncharacteristic mistakes. I think the pressure got to her,” Saina added.Playing at Indian OpenMeanwhile, Saina will be in action at the rechristened Indian Open, which gets underway in Hyderabad on Wednesday. This tournament was known as the Syed Modi International till last year.”I had a great year. I would like to end that on a positive note by winning in front of my home crowd,” said Saina.last_img read more

Mexico’s draw all about the fifth game

first_imgMexico Mexico’s path to the ‘quinto partido’ will draw attention at Friday’s World Cup draw Jon Arnold Click here to see more stories from this author @ArnoldcommaJon Last updated 1 year ago 06:08 12/1/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Andres Guardado Mexico Getty Images Mexico World Cup El Tri never have made it out of the Round of 16 at a World Cup on foreign soil. Their draw will be judged on how difficult or easy that path appears The fifth game. “El quinto partido.” Even with the World Cup Round of 16 still a full eight months away, the draw Mexico gets Dec. 1 will direct everyone’s attention to what could be happening June 1.Talk about getting to the “quinto partido” is on everyone’s lips every four years. For a country that lives and breaths soccer as much as Mexico does and has so much pride in its national team, the fact that the team has never made it to the quarterfinals of a World Cup played on foreign soil stands out as a point of embarrassment.There will be analysis of Mexico’s group opponents, but fans also will be tempted to look ahead to see who Mexico might face in the Round of 16, the point where the adventure has ended for El Tri in the last six tournaments. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player “First we have to talk about the group phase and after that see if Mexico can keep advancing to the final stages. But Mexico can advance to the fifth game,” former Mexico midfielder Alberto Garcia Arce, a three-time World Cup veteran who now works as a Fox Deportes analyst, told Goal this week, “Hopefully this national team can move on even past that, but obviously we’ll have to see beyond even the group that they’re in, which team they could meet in the next round. That’s also really important: Which team you could face when you’re advancing to the next round.”That’s what Mexico will learn Friday morning Mexico City time. Sitting in Pot 2 as CONCACAF’s strongest team, Mexico could end up with a favorable draw but be ‘crossed’ with a group that contains two powers like Brazil and Spain .Alberto Garcia Aspe MexicoWhile it’s a topic of plenty of debate among the Mexican people, Garcia Aspe said the players inside the locker room are much more likely to focus on the matchup at hand rather than hitting a goal the fans have set for the team – no matter how much of a boost to the spirits it would be if they hit that goal. “I don’t think the players talk about the ‘quinto partido’. I think the ‘quinto partido’ is much more something the fans and the press (chat about). The press is a big part of why we talk about this fifth game. Obviously the players do have it in mind. In 1994 we were right there and we’ve been very close to advancing there in other World Cups,” Garcia Aspe said.That tournament in the United States showed how deceiving the draw can be. Mexico won its group thanks to scoring more goals than a powerhouse Italy team that ended up finishing runner-up. That brought what should’ve been a forgiving contest against Bulgaria. Garcia Aspe converted a penalty in regular time of a 1-1 draw but sent his kick in the shootout over the crossbar as the Cinderella team from Europe continued on.Even with a glass ceiling on the team, Garcia Aspe hopes the current team aims not only to get to the fifth game and break out of the rut the Mexico national team seems to be stuck in but sets its sights even higher.”I think as a player, you concentrate more on the games that are coming, on moving on, but obviously you have the expectation of getting to this ‘quinto partido’ – not only the ‘quinto partido’​ but advancing ideally to the seventh game, right? That would be the final,” he said. “I don’t think the players are thinking about the fifth game. They’re thinking about playing at the World Cup, defending the colors, doing their job and in the course of that you get to the ‘quinto partido.'”Javier Hernandez Chicharito MexicoThat certainly is the attitude the current squad is taking. Midfielder Andres Guardado said before friendly matches against Belgium and Poland in November that he “might get called crazy” for thinking El Tri could go far beyond the fifth game but nevertheless will approach the tournament with that attitude.”Mexico’s ambition is very clear. In our country we talk a lot about a different World Cup and about finally eliminating the ghosts of the past and be able not only to get past the ‘quinto partido,’ which is mentioned often in Mexico, but be able to set much higher goals for ourselves. I believe we’re capable of this,” Guardado said at a news conference.So if Mexico is set to give its all with Juan Carlos Osorio at the helm and a mix of veteran players like Guardado and Chicharito with rising stars like Hirving Lozano and Jesus Corona, are we putting too much emphasis on Friday’s big moment? Is it just something to tide us over until the real fun starts in the summer? Well, not quite.Just who Mexico plays will have a big bearing on how easy the road is to achieving what it wants in Russia. Garcia Aspe noted that a tough group but an easy Round of 16 opponent may help Mexico get up to speed as opposed to the reverse. Osorio is waiting to see what the ping-pong balls bring.”We’ll see what fate has for us. I think all the teams in the World Cup have their own merit and methodology and will be difficult challenges,” the coach said upon arriving in Moscow. “I think we can accommodate certain styles of play. Mexican soccer has been preparing to arrive at this moment in time and if we want to have a great World Cup we must face difficult opponents. We’re waiting to compete and have a good World Cup.”last_img read more

IT’S A STATE OF ORIGIN CLASH

first_imgNSW v Queensland. The thought of a match between traditional Touch strongholds makes enthusiasts rub their hands in glee. Karley Banks has this report on the Boys 15 Years match between the two sides at the 2004 School Sport Australia Touch Championships. QUEENSLAND WINS THE FIRST ROUND: Queensland took the points in today’s heavyweight clash against arch rivals NSW in the Boys 15 Years Division. Despite the 8 – 4 victory, neither team was reading too much into the result, reasoning the tournament and their teams still had a lot of Touch to play and that today’s result would matter little in the final wash-up. The attack from both teams was quality all the way, despite the sweltering conditions, but defensive lapses hit both teams as they struggled to gain stability in defence and a decisive edge. The game opened at a frenetic pace and it was end-to-end passages in the opening exchanges as both teams struggled to find the early chink in the armour. NSW play maker Kialu Brown and Qld lynchpin Dwayne Conlon traded steps and skills in this attacking blitz, which was only thwarted by committed defence from both sides who hung tougher than Dizzy Gillespie at nine down on a dodgy deck. Seven minutes into the first half, NSW finally got the opportunity they coveted when a quick changeover and a clever wrap play from Kenneth Forrest and Zoram Watene resulted in Watene grabbing the first TD of the game. Concerted pressure from Qld saw a clever short dump and split play close out pay dividends with that man Dwayne Conlon streaking over to equalize at 1-1. The Qld boys were still hi-fiving Conlon when the elusive Kialu Brown, just 60 seconds later, produced some inspired play for NSW, throwing an audacious cut out pass to Kenneth Forrest who dived over in the corner to take the Blues out to a 2-1 lead. Incredibly, in the very next set of six Dwayne Conlon, the man who surely must have been covered in spiders, so infrequently did NSW make a touch on him, was weaving his magic again. Another pet play short to the line saw Conlon escape from half and find his Captain and Glenala State High team mate Nathan Bani who dived over to put the banana benders back on level terms at 2-2. The Queenslanders looked determined to settle and play some disciplined touch – they started rolling with their rucking and transitioned well with few unforced errors, this extra concentration in attack helped steady their defence. NSW went close in the next set, but Queensland had weathered the storm, for the time being at least. Qld’s next possession was a classic piece of expansive play, a nice long ball into a Late `B’ switch play between the talented John Tyson and Waimana Kingi who combined for a quick phase of play. The two NSW middles were split apart like a watermelon and Josh Costello accepted the short ball on a platter to put the Maroons up by one. NSW did not take a backward step and threw everything at the Qld line but the Qld middle of the park defence led by the rock solid Peter Norman, Anthony Mitchell, and Dwayne Conlon refused to concede in the shadows of half time. Qld looked for some breathing space before oranges, and found it when Josh Costello did it all himself and mesmerised the defence into ball watching. Holding the ball out in front, like all good ball players, he ran a dummy `A’ play close to the line and to the delight of the local crowd plunged over to give Qld a 4-2 lead. At 4-2 the game was still very much there for the taking and it was clear that for the most part, the players’ on both sides, had decided to leave their defensive face in the kit bag today. Today’s game was all about attack with both sides keen to chance their arm and take some risks. After the break NSW produced a clever tap play that nearly paid instant dividends. A stray pass cost the Blues as they battled desperately to get back on level terms with Qld. The more the half wore on, the closer Qld seemed to victory and the closer NSW inched towards defeat – pushed passes and rushed options hurt the Blues – partly due to the great defensive pressure Qld exerted in second phase defensive situations. Seven minutes into the second half Qld worked another quick dump and split play which found Brendan Andrews splitting on the outside of a defender then snap like a cobra straight back into a gaping hole which was caused because a NSW defender slipped and couldn’t recover – but it was still a great read from Andrews, who gleefully took his side out to a commanding 5-2 lead. Kiaula Brown, Jack Bowsden, and Zoram Watene tried desperately to dig their team out, creating numerous half chances, which frustratingly came to naught for the Blues. Michael Singh and Matthew Yiagou eventually combined to produce a short dump and split play of their own to give NSW a glimmer of hope and bridge the gap to 5 -3. Qld was determined to hit back and almost immediately David Briggs, a class act with all the skills, injected himself into the game and produced a great finish off the back of some well worked and sequenced long balls and deep switch plays which isolated the middles – the `Danger Will Robinson’ call came far too late for the disjointed NSW middle whose lack of communication and decisiveness provided an obvious target for second phase play. At 6 – 4 to Qld, John Tyson again put his stamp on the game, being prominent in a collaborative passing movement, which smacked of combination that only a well-oiled machine could conjure. Tyson accepted a great inside ball from Anthony Mitchell to dash NSW hopes of retribution in this game. NSW, as proud defending champions, refused to give in and fought back with Heath Bassett firing a bullet in Coedi Towney’s direction. The lanky winger accepted the offering and NSW at 7 – 4 was starting to find some rhythm with their play, making less errors, and finding some combination. With less than two minutes to go, Qld wanted the last word and got it when Ben Drury spied an opportunity for a short side overlap and sent Cameron Curtis spearing over to complete the scoring for the game. The 8 – 4 victory was welcomed by Qld Coach Dan `the man’ Parker who was pleased with his team’s efforts. “It was a good team effort, we promoted the ball well and attacked with purpose. Defence was ordinary, something we can work on in the next few days.” “It’s a good win and they all played well -but it won’t mean nothin’ if we don’t win Saturday (in the final)…. The guys were ready to play and having Peter Bell’s input was great – he is a great tactician and a few technical points he made helped the boys immensely.” Parker was loathe to praise just one of his players, but agreed Dwayne Conlon is a special player who can create great opportunities with his hands and feet. Parker who teaches at Glenala State High, a school with a large Indigenous population has worked tirelessly at the school to promote touch and the participation of Indigenous youth in the sport. Four Glenala boys are in this Qld side and their combination and understanding of the Coach’s tactics is a definite strength as Qld search to find the path to victory in this year’s series. For NSW coach Mark Hildebrandt, who spent five years as Manager of the team before taking over as Coach this year, the result is not one he is overly concerned with. “We can play much better. Communication was a problem and we really didn’t play to our pattern…. full credit to them they subbed and moved the ball well, but I feel we got close, scored a few, and didn’t play anywhere near our best…we’ve got plenty left in us and we’ll build into the tournament from here.” So there you go – sounds like plenty of good Touch from these two sides and everyone else to look forward to. For NSW Kialu Brown was a dangerous customer who will give a few teams a few nightmares “I see Steppy people” (as in the sixth sense) watch him go, he is exciting to watch. Qld were great across the park but the “Game Go to Guy” went to none other than Dwayne Conlon who carved up the NSW middle like a Christmas turkey. I heard all reserve seating was sold out for tomorrow’s big program at Owen Park – with Qld taking on NSW in the 15 Years Girls and both the 12 Years Boys and Girls and a host of other fantastic games – it should be a cracker. Stay tuned, I expect to see the kids using their own flashy, crowd pleasing, non-federation touch steps tomorrow – it brings the crowds back to the game. Written by Karley Bankslast_img
