Australian rugby team trains at ND

first_imgThe Australian national rugby union team, nicknamed the Wallabies, arrived in South Bend on Saturday and will be training on campus through Thursday. The squad, which is currently ranked third in the world, behind New Zealand and Ireland, will then travel to Chicago for a test match at Soldier Field against the 16th-ranked USA Eagles on Saturday night.  Members from both the Notre Dame men and women’s club rugby teams attended Monday night’s practice with their coaches. Sophomore Rachael Shey, a member of the women’s club rugby team, said although the practice was optional for Notre Dame players, watching with her coach was a beneficial learning experience.“Our coach is here for the practice. He’s here to network and teach us what they’re doing,” she said.Senior Andy Preising, captain and president of the men’s club rugby team, said Saturday’s game would be a test for the Eagles. “They’ve got a game on Saturday, which unfortunately is at the same time as the Texas game,” Preising said. “It’s going to be a big test for the U.S., definitely. We had our first international test in America last year — we played the All Blacks [New Zealand’s national rugby union team].”This will only be the fourth time the Wallabies have played in the U.S. and the first time they’ve played the Eagles in nearly 40 years. Preising says the team will not practice on Notre Dame’s Stinson Rugby Field but instead on the field near Stepan Center. “We’ve opened up our facilities to them. They’re not actually going to be playing much on our field because it’s turf and Soldier Field is grass,” he said. Director of Sports Science Matt Howley is from Australia and Kevin Ricks, associate athletic trainer, said Howley was part of why the Wallabies got into contact with Notre Dame. “They were scheduled to play in Chicago and were already looking for a place nearby to practice and train before the match,” Ricks said. While Notre Dame players will probably not have the opportunity to interact much with the Wallabies, Ricks said the Irish athletic staff are expected to interact with the team’s support staff of therapists, doctors and strength coaches. The Australian staff is considered to be one of the most advanced in the world in terms of sports science, and they will be working with Irish strength and conditioning coaches, athletic trainers and nutritionists. After the Wallabies play in Chicago, the squad will return to Notre Dame for more training before going off to London on Sept. 13 to compete in the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Their first game is Sept. 23 against Fiji.  Tags: athletics, athletics department, Australia, Rugby, Stepan Center, wallabieslast_img read more

Travel companies see it as ‘welcomed step’

first_imgThroughout the coronavirus pandemic, travel executives have been pinning their hopes on a Covid-19 vaccine saving their industry, which has suffered from the fallout of the health crisis.Following news Monday of Pfizer‘s vaccine data showing more than 90% efficacy among participants without evidence of prior infection, CEOs from major cruise lines and hospitality operators cheered the breakthrough.“TripAdvisor has long believed travel will recover with vigor as soon as a vaccine was widely available. Today’s Pfizer news is a welcomed step in the right direction,” Steve Kaufer, CEO of TripAdvisor, told CNBC over email.- Advertisement – Florida, Port of Miami, Row of cruise ships docked, non-essential business due to Coronavirus.Jeff Greenberg | Universal Images Group | Getty Images – Advertisement – “This is a very positive development for the world, and, of course, our company and our brands, as well as the cruise industry. It is too early at this point to determine the impact this may have on the conditional sail order in the U.S., if any,” Carnival wrote in an email to CNBC.Carnival shares soared about 36% on Monday, on pace for its best day ever as a public company. It went public in 1987.Richard Fain, CEO of Royal Caribbean, has often called a vaccine the “ultimate weapon” to tackling Covid-19. Royal Caribbean rocketed up about 28%, on track for its best day since March.In the meantime, the cruise operators are working around the clock, setting up testing facilities for all crew and conducting simulated voyages with their new COVID protocols. Once deemed successful, CDC will provide the green light. Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Line have suspended U.S. sailing for the remainder of 2020.Norwegian Cruise Line reports quarterly earnings after the bell on Monday, where shareholders will want to know whether a January 2021 start-date is feasible.Analysts also are wondering whether a new administration under the leadership of President-elect Joe Biden will result in different protocols for the cruise industry. The industry has received support from Vice President Mike Pence, who reportedly overruled the CDC’s decision to extend its cruise ban until February 2021. CDC lifted its no-sail order at the end of October and issued a framework for a Conditional Sailing Order.Truist Securities Managing Director Patrick Scholes believes a Biden administration “will be more likely to follow the recommendations of the CDC when it comes to health matters.” Hotel operators also joined in on the market rally Monday, with Marriott on pace for its best day since March.Online travel giant Expedia is up 20%, on pace for its largest percentage increase since 2012.Investors are hopeful that access to a vaccine will lift confidence in travelers and result in a spike in bookings next year. Prior the Pfizer vaccine news, Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson on the company’s earnings call last Friday said, “We’ll start to see meaningfully more bookings when those vaccines start to take effect.”center_img – Advertisement – Shares of TripAdvisor jumped 20%.Travel executives are hopeful that an effective vaccine will speed up the timeline around when travelers will feel comfortable getting back out and about again.While questions remain around the supply and distribution of a vaccine, the data from Pfizer was enough to fuel travel-related stocks to the top of the S&P 500.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Diploma Divide: College soccer faces pressure to change or lose out on top players

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ The best 18-year-old soccer players in the world, in America, aren’t playing college soccer. There’s no reason for them to. They can practice, play and get paid to do so with professional teams around the country and globe, constantly perfecting their craft.There’s another set of players, almost as good, who can get even better. But they go to college and don’t get the practice to fulfill their potential. It’s NCAA policy to limit players to 20 hours of practice per week in-season and eight out of season – though there are further limits on how much they can practice with their coaches.Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre is part of a coalition of top college coaches — including Maryland’s Sasho Cirovski, Indiana’s Todd Yeagley and supported by West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck — pushing for the NCAA to change its regulations on Division I college soccer and allow teams to play a few more games in an extended fall-spring season.“We are one of the more mobilized coaches groups out there,” McIntyre said. “This is something we’ve talked about for the last year or so.”Collegiate soccer, along with the game in the rest of the country, has improved in the past 30-plus years. But if college soccer doesn’t reform now, McIntyre and other coaches argue, it will lose out on more top talent.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We already are,” McIntyre said.As Major League Soccer evolves, more and more professionalized club academy systems are scooping up players, allowing teams to sign local talent to Homegrown contracts — which don’t count against team salary caps. There are increasing and better opportunities. Without action from the NCAA, coaches say, there is a closing window in which college soccer can stay relevant.McIntyre can offer a soccer prospect a number of games he probably wouldn’t get to play in competing for time at the professional level. But they come too quickly to help the player fully develop. McIntyre, or any college head coach, can’t work with his players for more than two hours per week in the offseason.Outside of the season, their skills are stunted. In it, their academics are risked by near-constant travel and their bodies are ground along the brink of breaking down, reducing midweek practices to tactical walkthroughs. When McIntyre’s squad ended practice Monday, no one was sweating.“Right now we’re managing players rather than training players,” McIntyre said.Andrew Wenger was the No. 1 pick in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft after playing three seasons at Duke. Every summer during his Duke career he played in the Premier Development League, a division of the United Soccer Leagues in which most of the country’s best college players play.Effectively, he extended his season. He remembers that each fall some of his Blue Devils teammates would return to Durham not in good enough shape to play a competitive game. They hadn’t all summer. They’d been working summer internships. And for some of them, it took two months — half the season — to get there.“If everybody’s not rowing in the same direction — it’s the old adage, you’re working against yourself,” said Brendan Burke, Northeastern associate head coach and SU goalkeeper Alex Bono’s former coach at Reading United. “All it takes is a couple to not be focused on what they’re doing.”It weakened the team, the training sessions and the better players in them. The very best college players, Wenger said, come out of school behind and tend to have narrower, lower-paying career paths with some even sliding out of MLS into the United Soccer League PRO division or the North American Soccer League.On Aug. 28, Stanford sophomore midfielder Jordan Morris became the first college player called up to the U.S. men’s national team since 1999. Of the 18 other field players named to the roster for the U.S. friendly match against the Czech Republic on Sept. 3, only four had played any college soccer.It showed.“The main thing that I noticed is the speed of play is so high,” Morris said. “I think just as you keep moving up levels, that’s a huge difference is just — everyone is so technically gifted to get to where they are at that level.”Without college soccer, Morris wouldn’t have been with the national team in Prague, Czech Republic. He said he wasn’t physically or technically developed enough coming out of high school and Eastside FC, a youth club in Washington. Morris didn’t even know if he wanted to play professional soccer then, he said.But he thinks college soccer should change. An extended season, he said, would give more players more practice on their individual skills and team play, raising the level of external and internal competition.“It’s kind of hard when you’ve got a whole year left to put all your focus into getting technically better,” Morris said.For decades, college soccer was practically the only route to being a professional soccer player in America. Former U.S. national team midfielder and Reading United technical director Troy Snyder remembers the original North American Soccer League folding when he was playing at Penn State in the mid-1980s, leaving American soccer with no nationwide system of organized soccer more competitive than the NCAA.And while college soccer today is surrounded and becoming overmatched by MLS teams, theirs and other U.S. Soccer Development Academy teams, it is better than it was then, Snyder said.“I think college kids are training harder in the weight programs, just everything about it has gotten much more serious in all aspects of it,” Snyder said. “… I still disagree with the number of games. I think they should play more games.”SU midfielder Stefanos Stamoulacatos just missed out on his youth club, Empire United, joining the U.S. Soccer Development Academy system. Empire didn’t align with the New England Revolution until his senior year of high school.He’s trained with Greek professional clubs AEK Athens at age 17 and Olympiacos when he was 15. There, practicing was just a matter of doing one’s job, he said.Stamoulacatos also wants an extended, more spread-out college season. He acknowledges that some schools, not wanting to invest in a two-season soccer team, might drop their programs as others create more professional training environments.“Do whatever it is to make it more professional-like‬,” Stamoulacatos said. “I guess there would have to be sacrifices.” Comments Published on September 17, 2014 at 12:30 am Contact Jacob: [email protected] | @Jacob_Klinger_last_img read more

21 COVID-19 cases linked to Cedar Rapids nursing home outbreak

first_imgJOHNSTON — State officials have confirmed there’s an outbreak of COVID-19 at a Cedar Rapids nursing home. Governor Kim Reynolds made the announcement during her daily news conference on Monday.“Twenty-one of Linn County’s 71 total positive COVID-19 cases are directly related to this outbreak,” Reynolds said. “State and local public health officials are working closely with the facility regarding the care of those who are sick and assisting with the monitoring of residents and staff.”Last week, Reynolds issued an order that all staff entering any long-term care facility in the state be screened for a fever, as that’s one of the key symptoms of COVID-19.“This is a critical step to ensure our health care workers are healthy,” Reynolds said Monday, “and to protect the most vulnerable Iowans.”Some city and county officials in the state have been asking the governor to take another step and issue a statewide “stay at home” order. Reynolds today said the data does not indicate that kind of a restriction should be triggered at this point.“I really feel strongly that’s the proper way to move forward so that we don’t really impact the supply chain,” Reynolds said, “we don’t raise the anxiety higher than it already is.”Reynolds said health care experts advise there’s a chance for a second spike in the number of COVID-19 cases, perhaps in the fall, and that’s why she’s not issuing a “stay at home” order now.“This is a marathon and so if you keep asking people to do more and more and more and we’re not basing it on data, then at some point they really are not going to take you serious,” Reynolds said. “It’s like: ‘Well, we’ve asked too much of people and their willingness to accept and do what they need to do is really pushed to the max.”According to Reynolds, the state of Iowa will receive at least 15 of the new mobile testing machines from Abbott Laboratories that will be able to process tests in five minutes. Reynolds suggested those machines will be deployed to hospitals and some nursing homes.“This is really good progress,” Reynolds said.Reynolds told reporters she’s waiting for the Trump Administration to release details later this week on the president’s “social distancing” guidelines which have been extended until April 30th. As of now, the governor has only recommended that Iowa schools stay closed until Monday, April 13th.last_img read more

Inishowen artist to compete for biggest contemporary art prize

first_imgDonegal artist Marty Kelly will compete for the biggest prize in Irish contemporary art at Vue 2016 at the Royal Hibernian Association gallery from November 3-6.The €5,000 Vue Contemporary Art Prize presented by Savills will be awarded to the artist who has produced an outstanding body of work in the last year or made some other substantial contribution to the visual arts in Ireland.19 of Ireland’s leading contemporary art galleries have each nominated an artist as a contender for the prize and RHA director Dr Patrick Murphy, who has an extensive track record as a curator of contemporary Irish art, will adjudicate. Carndonagh native Kelly has been nominated by the Gibbons and Nicholas gallery in Dublin, where he completed “There’ll be no bloody bluebirds”, a series inspired by the current migrant crisis in Europe.After seeing the White Cliffs of Dover on a return trip from Calais, Kelly was reminded of the patriotic song by Dame Vera Lynn and decided to use the bluebird as a metaphor for refugees.The series explores issues of unity and separatism and how we identify with each other through compassion, love, gratitude, acceptance, pity and fear.“My current work investigates how we identify ourselves,” Kelly said. “Why do we see someone else’s experience of life as being wholly separate from our own? Compassion is seeing ourselves in each other rather than fear. Work is for me part of a daily meditation exploring these issues and states of being.“Sometimes we see others as less worthy or imprisoned and sometimes they are not. I’m observing the world and society as a self-enquiry. I don’t have the solution but I hope the work generates awareness and empathy.”Last year’s prize was awarded to abstract artist Richard Gorman who collaborated with Stoney Road Press for his series ‘Kan’ – three monumental (150 x 110cm) carborundum prints on handmade Indian paper.“This is only the second year the Savills Art Prize has been presented at Vue and we hope the award will become as important to Irish art as the Turner Prize is in the UK,” said Vue 2016 organiser Louis O’Sullivan.“Savills are the perfect partner to present the Prize as most art is found in homes and businesses, and not just museums. “Vue 2016 is a great opportunity for collectors and investors to experience some of the best contemporary art currently being created in Ireland, and to get some expert advice and guidance from leading galleries.”Opening hours for Vue 2016 are 6-8pm on Thursday, November 3, 11am-8pm on Friday, November 4, 11am-7pm on Saturday, November 5, and 12-6pm on Sunday, November 6.Inishowen artist to compete for biggest contemporary art prize was last modified: October 17th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Level Up: Video Games Are The New Educational Hack

first_imgHow to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? Turns out—to no surprise—they can. Here are the winners from the 2013 Challenge, with video game designs encompassing everything from community and literacy, to math, science and health.Through the project, kids learn and take away a myriad of lessons about communication, collaboration, problem solving and systems and computer thinking. The high number of educational Challenge submissions speaks to the interest of youth to see video games with an academic framework. It’s taking a medium already used by students and developing the games in a way that benefits their progress in school. stephanie ellen chan Why You Love Online Quizzes Video games are often at the center of negative press for their effect on children. But that’s not the only story that can be told. Video games used as teaching tools can change lives and impart excellent skills.With news of any youth in possession of a gun or worse being the perpetrator of a shooting, the eyes of the world fall on their consumption of media: What video game did that child play last?  Names like Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty have become synonymous with a supposed cultural degradation, the blame of many for the rise of youth violence and gun homicides. But children can also learn from the creation of and interaction with video games dispelling the harsh stigma of the child/video game complex and bringing a revolution to the educational system. A revolution that will be gamified. Related Posts Video games utilized for education can have unique and positive effects. Two programs make this very clear: The National STEM Video Game Challenge is an annual call for middle to high schoolers to submit their own video game designs and compete on the national level with other children their age. By designing their own games, children learn the ins and outs of coding, strategy and digital creation.The Mind Research Institute’s ST Math video game is another example of education gamification, as it utilizes the medium of a video game to teach students to conceptualize math in brand new ways. This lets children have a visual representation of math problems in motion; what was once just numbers placed flat in a textbook now dance to life with a digital companion to aid in figuring out solutions.The gamification of education is radical and effective. Such alternative methods to today’s education system deserve a closer look.The 2013 National STEM Video Game Challenge is a call for youth to design and submit their own video games in an effort to increase science and technology learning. This challenge, started in 2010, was created in response to the White House’s push towards STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education. The goal is simple—plant an interest in technology and engineering by spurring youth to create their own video games. The question lies in if the students are actually able to build a platform themselves. Matthew Peterson from the Mind Research Institute argues that learning through video games—sans words—is the key to increased learning opportunities. With an emphasis on math education, the MRI aims to forever change how students achieve success in math. For example, MRI’s ST Math software is a video game where each level depicts a new math problem for the player to solve. Problems are presented without words, and instead inferred through pictures and numbers. An animated penguin is the friendly guide throughout each level—users must solve the math problem so that the penguin can cross the screen.In his TED Talk, Peterson speaks about how teaching math through video games is the key to raising test scores, granting educational opportunities and achieving success for the future.Youth thrive in being their own purveyors of their educational journey. Textbooks and paperwork provide only one way for students to engage in mathematics, a method that does not account for the variances in the many ways children learn. ST Math’s utilization of avatars, movement, and interactivity with problem solving grants players the agency needed to acquire a solid command of math skills. MRI’s dataset shows the improvement of math test proficiency in schools across America who used ST Math for one to two years. The conversation surrounding children and video games can be shifted to reveal the hugely positive hack it’s creating in the educational system at this very moment. Kids may be born into the care of screens, but if utilized in the right ways, those screens can create significant improvement in areas like science, tech and math. Images and videos courtesy of gamerenthusiast, National STEM Video Game Challenge, Mind Research Institute, TedxTalks, ELineMedia Tags:#education#math#stem#video games 7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Growing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoidlast_img read more
