Judicial Council hosts final debate before student body election

first_imgThe Judicial Council hosted the final debate for the regular student body elections Monday night at 9 p.m. in the Midfield Commons of the Duncan Student Center.Running for office this year are the following tickets, for president and vice president, respectively: junior Noble Patidar and freshman Connor Patrick; junior Connor Whittle and sophomore Jack Rotolo; junior Zachary Mercugliano and freshman Aviva Lund; freshmen Henry Bates and Thomas Henry; juniors Michael Dugan and Ricardo Pozas Garza and juniors Rachel Ingal and Sarah Galbenski.All six tickets were present at the debate, which was moderated by junior and Judicial Council president Halena Hadi.Hadi began the debate by explaining the questions posed to the candidates came directly from students, and three randomly generated tickets would have the opportunity to answer each question. The pairs of candidates then introduced themselves and provided a brief overview of their platforms. The Bates-Henry ticket concluded the introductions by spontaneously ripping off their tear-away pants, much to the amusement of the crowd.The first question was in reference to the upcoming presidential debate that will be hosted on campus next fall and how each ticket’s administration planned to unify the campus in the midst of such a divisive political climate.Galbenski started the conversation with a proposition to include a voter registration module in the Moreau First Year Experience because of the influx of “newly minted 18 year olds” on campus in the fall. Photo courtesy of Patrick McGuire Candidates for student body president and vice president debated Monday night at 9 p.m. in Midfield Commons. The election is Tuesday, and voting commences at 8 a.m. and ends at 8 p.m.Whittle brought up his ticket’s initiative titled “Share Your Story Week.” “There would be a video booth around campus with simple questions like, ‘Who inspires you?’ ‘What’s your story?’ I think questions like that raise an overall important way of approaching dialogue that is meaningful,” he said. Lund emphasized the “blue dot / gold dot” initiative.“Starting in the dining halls, we would want people to be open to having conversations with cool, new people by putting a gold dot on their table,” Lund said. “If you’re busy studying, you could put up the blue dot.” The next question asked candidates to explain how they would help students from diverse backgrounds feel a sense of belonging on campus.Pozas Garza discussed why increasing club funding could help promote inclusion. “BridgeND can provide a model that suits that conversation [about diversity],” Pozas Garza said. “Did you know that Diversity Council, for example, is a club? Those are the kinds of things we want to improve our funding upon.”Diverse religious backgrounds were also a part of this conversation. Patidar suggested a method reminiscent of ConvergeND’s quiz format for pairing up students of different faith backgrounds to engage in productive dialogue.The Bates-Henry ticket chimed in as well, proposing the national anthem of every country represented in the Notre Dame student body be played before every sports event “at the same time to promote unity on campus.”When asked how they would address transgender rights on campus, Whittle decisively communicated his ticket’s stance. “Hate has no place on this campus,” he said. “We believe that sexual orientation and sexual identity should be added to the University’s non-discrimination clause.”Ingal agreed with the importance of this addition to the clause, sharing an anecdote about a Notre Dame graduate student who faced discrimination from an academic advisor as a result of her transgender identity.In response to the next question about sustainability, the Patidar-Patrick ticket shared a specific facet of their platform.“At Starbucks … people don’t know that only the lid and the cupholder are recyclable and the actual cup is not,” Patidar said. “I don’t see why having an awareness initiative where you put a poster where you throw your trash away that shows what’s recyclable and what’s not … is that hard to do.”The following question dealt with the inclusion of low-income students in residential and student life.Dugan explained that as a low-income student himself, he had experienced some of these limitations firsthand. He emphasized a necessary change in compensation for resident assistants and increased communication from the Student Activities Office about student programming jobs.He also said the Dugan-Garza ticket would reallocate $10,000 in student union funds. “What we would do with that $10K is give it to the Office of Student Enrichment, which is the office that serves low-income students like myself,” he said.In regards to gender relations issues, Ingal said it was crucial to take a pre-emptive approach with the gender relations issue on campus.“Something that’s really important to us is protecting women during the ‘red zone’ which is the first six weeks of a semester,” she said. “That is the time when you’re most likely to see sexual assaults carried out successfully. … One way we want to do that is by amplifying GreeNDot training not only for Welcome Weekend staff but also for people at bars or ushers at football games.”Dugan provided statistics to support the claim that women need greater access to confidential sexual assault resources on campus.“Twenty seven percent of women on this campus experience non-consensual sexual contact, and 7% of men do,” he said. “Of those who experience non-consensual sexual contact, 4% are able and 2% wind up reporting. Those are numbers we should not accept.”The candidates were then asked how Notre Dame should extend its community to the locals of South Bend.Mercugliano shared his experience with a craft fair that allowed him to connect with local business owners.“They expressed a lot of interest in both having more craft fairs of the like and small business fairs not only here on campus but in downtown South Bend,” he said. “I think that would be a great way to increase community involvement.”Rotolo proposed the addition of a community engagement module to the Moreau First Year Experience curriculum.To round out the debate, the candidates gave their closing statements, where they thanked their campaign teams and summarized the key takeaways from their platforms. Hadi reminded the audience that the election would take place Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and students could vote via email or the Judicial Council’s website. She also said there would be a runoff debate Wednesday at the same location and time and runoff elections would take place Thursday.

AU woos African Diaspora

first_img26 May 2003Over 50 African foreign ministers met in Sun City outside Rustenburg last week to discuss, among other things, ways of including the African Diaspora in the activities of the African Union (AU).The ministers, who constitute the AU’s executive council, the second most powerful organ of the organisation, discussed ways of getting Africans from developed countries such as the US, UK, Germany and France, as well as from developing countries like Brazil, to play a role in the continent’s socio-economic plan, the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (Nepad).South African President Thabo Mbeki, the AU’s chairman, told the assembled ministers that “there are so many of our own, all over the world, who are enthusiastic and willing to make their contribution to the regeneration of their mother continent. This they want to do because their roots run very deep into the African soil.”South African Foreign Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said the delegates would not prescribe a uniform role for the diaspora. “The Africans in the Diaspora are in a different situation . some may want to utilise their skills in the development of the continent, and some may want to contribute to Nepad.“Others can mobilise in the countries where they are for co-operation . solidarity, support and investment,’ Dlamini-Zuma said, adding that Africans living at home and abroad needed each other to help in developing the continent.Arts, Culture, Science and Technology Minister Ben Ngubane said co-operation between African scientists and his department had already started producing results. “We have already created an information databank with the linkages with all these people,” he said.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Setting sail for a better future

first_imgStudents at the Izivunguvungu sailingschool learn life skills as well as theboating essentials. Youngsters from informal communitiesin the Western Cape are given a chanceto forge a rewarding career. The school’s best young sailors go forwardto compete in local and national racesand regattas.(Images: Izivunguvungu) MEDIA CONTACTS • Matthew Mentz  MD, Izivunguvungu  +27 21 786 1120 RELATED ARTICLES • Aviation, maritime careers for youth • SA women marine pilots make history • SA harbour chief makes world history • Oh captain, my captain • Volvo Race boost for CT firmLyndon JafthaSouth Africans who live near the coast can enjoy swimming, surfing, fishing and sailing at any time. For the past decade the non-profit Izivunguvungu-MSC Foundation for Youth has ensured that young people from the Western Cape’s disadvantaged communities can enjoy those activities too.Working with the South African Navy (SAN) and the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), Izivunguvungu (isiZulu, meaning “a sudden strong wind”) gives youngsters the opportunity to learn about sailing, boatbuilding, and they also receive education about health, literacy, and recycling and caring for the environment.Based in Simon’s Town, the Izivungu school enrols students between the ages of 11 and 18. There are currently 100 attending the school, with an average of 20 students, from schools servicing informal settlements including Red Hill and Ocean View, sailing on a daily basis.Lessons take place in the afternoons, and only once children have learnt how to swim. Promising students are taken on as instructors once they complete their training – however, at the moment there are funds enough for just two instructors.Students are not only taught the basics, but are also instructed in competitive sailing, boat building and repair, and navigation. Boats in all conditions are donated to the school, and the students learn how to get them seaworthy again before taking them out to sea.They also learn mathematics and physics, important subjects in the nautical sector. In addition, the school transports the students to the Simon’s Town dockyards and provides each one with a hearty meal after their sailing exercises.Besides their maritime education, Izivungu students are encouraged to fish in False Bay and participate in outdoor activities such as rock climbing and mountaineering.On the cultural side, the SAN Band supports the Izivunguvungu Music Project, which teaches brass and percussion skills to the musically inclined, who then get the chance to perform with the navy band during the annual SAN Festival.Developing their maritime skillsThe Izivunguvungu-MSC Foundation for Youth, in conjunction with the SAN Festival, is responsible for organising the largest developmental regatta in South Africa. Here, more than 50 development sailors compete in dinghies supplied by the SAN.Every Sunday, students take each other on in bosun dinghies, which look like small yachts and can carry a crew of up to four people. The 14-footers are fast enough to take part in competitions, and stable enough for beginners to handle. At the end of each competition season, the best teams are chosen to compete in local and national regattas and races.In 2011, seven students undertook the trip of their lives when they competed in the annual Cape to Rio Yacht race. The crew steered their yacht, Spirit of Izivunguvungu, into a credible seventh place out of 16 starters. The 5 343 km race took 20 days to complete.Speaking just before the race got underway, Izivunguvungu skipper Kader Williams expressed his pride in his young crew.“These are guys that have been on the back of a police van but changed their lives for the better,” he said.Like the rest of the team, the 31-year-old Williams started off as a young student and worked his way up through the Isivungu ranks.Izivungu graduate Asenathi Jim (19), also a 2011 Cape to Rio crewman, is currently campaigning for a spot in Team SA for the 2012 Olympics.With the experienced Roger Hudson, Jim is part of a two-man team that has been preparing for the Olympics since 2009. The duo is in Barcelona for the 470 World Championships, which take place from 10 to 19 May.Giving youngsters a chanceIzivunguvungu was started in 2001 by triple Olympian, former world sailing champion and qualified teacher Ian Ainslie, since 2004 a member of the South African America’s Cup entrant Team Shosholoza. Ainslie has been a keen sailor since the age of 13, and today is recognised as one of the country’s most accomplished helmsmen.The foundation has had a rewarding relationship with the SAN since its inception, and it is with their help and that of the Mediterranean Shipping Company that it can continue to do fulfil its mission.The navy provides the premises, which include an office building, recreational and educational space, a classroom, a clothing storeroom, and a kitchen and dining room. The navy has also given the school access to manpower for specialised teaching, vessels and emergency equipment.The Mediterranean Shipping Company continues to fund the initiative, and their support covers the salaries, food, competitive clothing, transport and petrol, and building maintenance. The MSC has also donated the keelboat Donna Mia Always, and helps promising students out with job opportunities.last_img read more

Some farmers are still keeping wheat in the rotation

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matt ReeseIt is hard not to love the early green-up, the amber waves and the rotational benefits of Ohio’s winter wheat crop, but quality challenges, management issues and prices have eroded away acreage in recent years. In 2017, there were only 435,000 winter wheat acres harvested in Ohio, the lowest acreage on record. Planted acreage for the 2018 harvest was up to 530,000 acres, but still just a fraction of the Ohio acreage from years gone by.Wheat, however, continues to be a part of the rotation for Ben Bowsher who farms in Allen and Auglaize counties.“It has fit into our operation for a few reasons. We use it to do some fertility work and tile projects and there is overall profitability with selling the straw and the double-crop soybeans. Wheat also is a cover crop and it a great crop to hold the ground in the fall through the winter and tie up nutrients that could move. I think it is a benefit to break up the corn bean rotation too. It is a nice fit with the entire package. Wheat was one of our better crops over the last several years,” Bowsher said. “There are a couple farms that are 50-50 with the landlords and we use it on those farms and on our own ground in the rotation or if we need to do some tiling or fertility work. This was one of our better wheat crops this year and if you look at the wheat, the straw, and the double-crops, wheat has actually been more profitable than corn or soybeans.”Statewide, the wheat crop was a fairly good one in 2018. Heading into harvest this summer Ohio’s winter wheat crop was rated 20% excellent and 63% good, according the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. In most cases, despite some wet weather challenges, wheat was harvested in a fairly timely manner. The week ending July 8 had Ohio’s wheat 68% harvested, which was just behind the rapid progress of 2017’s harvest, but well ahead of the 42% five year average.Bowsher’s recipe for profitable wheat starts with timely planting.“We got it in timely last fall. We planted on the fly free date and there really wasn’t any damage over winter. Most of the time we had snow cover when it was cold and I don’t know that we really lost any tillers over the winter,” Bowsher said. “I was a little concerned about when we were going to get the nitrogen on in the spring. It was early April when we first got in to topdress it. I topdressed it and turned right back around, sprayed for weeds and gave it a second shot of N. Then the fungicide application was right on time and we were able to get it harvested in a timely manner.”Fungicide on the wheat is standard procedure for Bowsher.“We spray fungicide on it every year. We used a helicopter this year the weekend before Memorial Day to spray,” he said. “We did some side-by-side comparisons and it was always a benefit. Now it is just part of our planned program to spray fungicide. It gives us better straw quality and better grain quality.”Good timing for harvest is vital to maintain the quality of the crop, but also to maximize the profit potential from the wheat acres.“It was good quality this year. It came out of the field dry — it dried down faster than we could harvest,” Bowsher said. “In this area there have been quality issues, so we always push it with wheat. If it is below 20% moisture I’ll spend the time and money to cut it versus risking a quality issue and delaying harvest. I try to cut it wet for quality, get the straw baled and get double-crops in. July 4 is when I like to get them in by.”Double-cropping soybeans has become an important part of the profitability of the wheat acres for Bowsher.“Over the last 10 years or so we have double-cropped,” he said. “Anything above 15 bushels for double-crops is worth harvesting and we probably have a low 20 average for double-crop yields and last year they were right around 30 across the board. This year it was June 29 when we started harvest, which is fairly normal and we started planting double-crops July 2. Then we got a nice rain and we have had more rain since. I finished planting double-crop beans on July 9. There was moisture there and they came up pretty quickly. I planted on a Monday and they were out of the ground on Friday.”Timely planting for the soybeans depends on the straw baling process too.“We just sell the windrows and guys come in and bale it. We have had a good buyer come in the last few years now,” Bowsher said. “They know we plan on planting double-crops and they are cognizant of our time.”While there are plenty of benefits to wheat it requires careful management from start to finish to be successful.“When it is time to do wheat there is no waiting a day or two. Planting, nitrogen application, weed, control, fungicide application and harvest — you have to do it when it needs done,” Bowsher said. “It is a little more workload in the fall trying to get it planted and the big thing with wheat is the timing. When it is time, you can’t put it off. It is a high management crop.”Ohio State University Extension experts recommend a number of practices to get the wheat crop off to a solid start this fall. Agronomist Harold Watters offers some tips.Planting date — The fly free date in Ohio is also our agronomic trigger for the best planting dates. From recent experience we probably want to plant within the week to 10 days after the date. Long-term data says we should get about the same yield if we plant in the 14-day window following fly free. Fly free dates in Ohio range from Sept. 22 in northern Ohio to Oct. 5 at Southpoint.Application of phosphorus — nutrient movement can be reduced by applying the fertilizer in the spring into the growing crop. If, for example, 90 pounds of P2O5 is needed, 20 to 35 pounds of nitrogen comes along with that (assuming MAP 11-52-0 or DAP 18-46-0). This puts on the N when it is needed in the spring and provides growing crop for phosphorus application.Variety selection — Get good genetics with excellent disease resistance. Pierce Paul says that to reduce the threat of Fusarium head blight and to get good yields, choose a variety with high resistance to head scab and plan to apply a fungicide if conditions require.Row width — Using a drill, wheat can be planted at 6 to 10 inches. There are many split-row soybean planters in 15-inch rows. It gets a cover out there and doesn’t take too great of a yield hit. Some Ohio wheat producers are interested in growing soft red winter wheat in 15-inch rows to use a more precise planting implement to reduce equipment inventory, reduce wheat seed costs, sow a cover crop, establish a forage crop, or to Modify Relay Intercrop (MRI) soybeans into wheat.Be sure to check out this year’s Ohio State University Wheat Performance Trials.last_img read more
