WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden’s administration is moving to revoke the designation of Yemen’s Houthis as a terrorist group, citing the need to mitigate one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters. President Donald Trump’s administration had branded the Iranian-backed Houthis as a foreign terrorist organization, a move that limited the provision of aid to the beleaguered Yemeni people, who have suffered under a yearslong civil war and famine. A State Department official confirmed the move Friday after members of Congress were notified of the administration’s plans. The official said the removal changed nothing about the Biden administration’s views of the Houthis, who have targeted civilians and kidnapped Americans.

This call to action comes at a time when an estimated 35 percent of millennial women (born between 1981 and 1995) who were baptized Catholic have turned away from the Church and no longer practice their faith.In August 2014, the “Voices of Young Catholic Women” project was underway, Groppe said. The College extended a national invitation to young women to write to Pope Francis to more than 700 members of the Catholic Campus Ministry Association. The invitation was also extended to Saint Mary’s alumnae, Catholic parishes in the diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Catholic high schools with which Saint Mary’s has connections through the College’s recruiting network, team leaders of the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) and Catholic web media.The ProjectFollowing the national invitation, the project’s team compiled the letters, poems and other forms of creative expression into a binder for Pope Francis as they were sent to the College, Groppe said.The responses addressed four main questions, including: what is cherished about the Catholic tradition, what it is like to be a young woman today, how young women can contribute their gifts to serve the Church’s mission and what other ways young women can support one another’s return to the Church, if disconnected, Groppe said.College president Carol Ann Mooney said the project ties in with the Saint Mary’s mission “about as clearly as anything does.”“We are concerned at Saint Mary’s not simply with, of course, the academic and intellectual development of our students, but also their moral, social and spiritual development. That’s our philosophy,” Mooney said. “This project is not just about Saint Mary’s or our students, but it is more about our Church and how it can better reach out to young women and keep them close, well-served, sustained and nourished by the Church.”Kristen Millar, a senior and active participant in Campus Ministry, said she was first asked to help with the project last year, and agreed to help without any idea of what it would turn into.“As I met with [members of the CFS], we went over some of the articles that spurred this project — about Millennials leaving the Church and the problems young women face today — and it was shocking for me to discover all of this because I honestly didn’t know,” Millar said. “I felt as though I’ve been sheltered from the need that exists in the Church to re-inspire young women in their faiths.”One of the articles that prompted the project was America magazine’s 2012 article titled “A Lost Generation?” about fewer women in the United States practicing their faith, Groppe said.After reading the article, the group knew something needed to be done, Millar said.“At a time when many have left the Church, letters that give expression to the beauty, truth and goodness that young women do find in Catholicism can make an important contribution to the New Evangelization,” Groppe said. “Letters may also generate ideas about ways in which the Church could strengthen its support for young women amidst the many challenges they face to their baptismal holiness and human dignity, including epidemic levels of sexual violence and a media culture that degrades women. The intent of this project is constructive and hopeful.”The CFS received 225 letters, including several poems, some prayers and a number of drawings and works of art, Groppe said. Most notably, students at Saint Ursula Academy in Cincinnati designed a handmade pink and red satin stole for Pope Francis.Though most of the letters have been kept confidential, the letters expressed love for the Church and the Pope, but also included concerns about today’s secular culture, which often objectifies women, director of media relations Gwen O’Brien said.“Some writers shared private sorrows, like that of sexual assault,” O’Brien said. “Others recognized the problem and ideas on how to address it.”Delivering the Letters to Pope FrancisOver Thanksgiving break, Bishop Kevin Rhoades, of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Mooney, Millar and alumna Grace Urankar, (class of 2014) traveled to Rome to deliver the letters Nov. 26 at the weekly papal audience.Urankar said the weight of the project did not hit her until she literally found herself carrying the bag with the large binder containing the 225 letters through the metal detector at the Vatican.“To physically carry them reminded me of the old belief ‘strength in numbers.’ It means so much to me that other young Catholic women appreciated our mission and united with us in letter writing,” Urankar said. “With so many voices represented, how could we not be heard?”After the papal audience, Rhoades introduced Millar and Mooney to Pope Francis in Spanish, and all were able to shake Pope Francis’ hand as they delivered the binder and stole.“I presented the stole from Saint Ursula’s, and then President Mooney gave Pope Francis the binder and said that the letters contained the joys, hopes, griefs and sorrows of young women from the millennial generation,” Millar said. “He shook both of our hands and said ‘Please pray for me, I need the prayers,’ which was incredibly moving and humbling to hear.“The very day before, Pope Francis was in France, and the next day he was leaving for Turkey, so it just shows you how much of an effort he is making to reach different communities and address different issues,” Millar said. “He’s a universal symbol for the universal Church, and we were honored to be able to present him with a national symbol — the letters.”Mooney said the experience of delivering the letters was wholly thrilling.“It’s not only thrilling to go to Rome, and it’s certainly thrilling to actually talk to the Pope, but it was truly thrilling to feel like we were there doing something that was really important,” Mooney said.Besides attending the papal audience and meeting Pope Francis, the group attended a Mass offered by Bishop Rhoades and had dinner with the students studying in the College’s Rome study abroad program, Millar said.The group also toured the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, led by Rome program professor Harula Economopoulos, and they visited the sites of historic Rome, such as the Colosseum and Pantheon.“One night at dinner, President Mooney, her husband, George, and Grace and I sat down and had a really good conversation about the project and the Pope and how we need to remember that the pope is human too,” Millar said. “A lot of times we think of him as a more distant figure, when in actuality he is going through the same trials of being a human like we are, and he has the same joys and hopes and fears.“When we saw him in the audience, he was so charismatic and gets so much joy out of being with the people. You can tell he wants to be in the community helping people and knowing people. He stays in the crowd as long as he can, even if he’s in his ‘Pope mobile.’“I am just grateful to be able to do my part in answering his call to young women,” Millar said.‘Together, we can do even more’With the letters delivered, the project’s team has since returned to the United States and hopes the idea behind the project will continue to be discussed in the Church and beyond, Millar said.One of the group’s more modest hopes, expressed by Mooney, Millar and Urankar, is simply for the letters to be read.“Some young women poured their hearts out in the pages of those letters, so what one hopes is not only that they are read — and I trust they will be — but that with the Holy Spirit, there’s some realization of unmet needs and how the Church can work to meet them,” Mooney said.Urankar said she believes Pope Francis will read and hold the letters’ intentions in his heart.“It is a challenging time and culture for us as young American Catholic women, but we are strong, committed and prepared to build the kingdom of God,” Urankar said. “I hope Pope Francis realizes this through our letters, and I hope anyone who has witnessed this project knows the same.”In regards to the project’s development, Mooney said she was impressed by the enthusiasm of the students and their courage to aim for the top from the very beginning.“Quite often, one loses that optimism and that belief that they have the ability to make change,” Mooney said. “We all need to keep that belief in ourselves alive. The optimism and enthusiasm that fueled this project is very important for everybody to keep.”The project will continue to manifest, Millar said, if women advocate for other women in our daily lives in all situations, as pressures build from society to remain faithful.“It’s important that women see their roles in the Church and within one another’s lives as vital and necessary, because they are,” Millar said. “I have had challenges in my faith and how to live it out, but ultimately I was able to make this trip because of the women mentors in my life. That’s the most important aspect for me.“To have seen the progression of this project was amazing, and we were able to receive an outpouring of messages of women in the United States saying, ‘This is awesome,’ and ‘This is so needed,’ which shows that this needs to be an ongoing conversation to bring about change.“We all just need to remember that although you may be one person, you can do so much, and together, we can do even more.”Tags: bishop kevin rhoades, Campus Ministry, Carol Ann Mooney, Center for Spirituality, Elizabeth Groppe, Grace Urankar, Kristen Millar, letters, millennial, Pope Francis, Vatican, Voices of Young Catholic Women Pope Francis asked, and Saint Mary’s delivered — literally.In the fall of 2013, 10 Saint Mary’s students, the Office of Campus Ministry and the Center for Spirituality (CFS) came together to discuss ways in which the Catholic Church could better reach young women around the world. Together, the group came to one conclusion: write to Pope Francis.
When the Jakarta city government declared a state of emergency and ordered companies to allow employees to work from home, we followed the directive and had reporters and editors work remotely. Also, to comply with the government’s encouragement of physical distancing, we urged reporters to prioritize their health and safety at the expense of direct access to sources.But one major problem remained: how to continue producing the newspaper. Producing the daily newspaper requires the physical presence of some of our staff in the newsroom to lay out the pages that are then delivered to the printing press.That was until earlier this week. With the the coronavirus showing no signs of abating, we decided to lock down our facilities and have the print production team start bringing the newspaper to life from the safety of their living rooms.It could have been a logistical nightmare, but with the exception of relocating two crucial pieces of hardware, the process was smooth sailing. If anything, this is something that we were preparing for. The newspaper you’re holding in your hands marks a first in The Jakarta Post’s 37 year history.The Post’s editorial team has seen it all, from the May 1998 riots, the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami in the Indian Ocean and the deadly flooding in 2013 that submerged much of Jakarta, to the New Order government’s threat to shut us down entirely.None of those historic events brought significant disruption to our production process. But COVID-19 is a danger that we cannot take lightly. In late February, unrelated to the outbreak of COVID-19, we decided to make changes to how we delivered news to you.For the first time in the Post’s history, we reconfigured the newsroom to deal with the changing landscape of the media industry, which puts speed and accuracy above anything else. With the change, we gave a significant degree of freedom to editors and reporters regarding when and where they could break stories.So if in the past month you’ve seen an uptick in rapid reporting on COVID-19, that’s a sign the new system has taken effect. Now, with only an internet connection, editors can coordinate a vast network of reporters, writers, photojournalists and multimedia journalists to produce the timely, dependable and relevant stories our readers have come to expect.Printing this newspaper remotely is the next logical step from the method we implemented in February.Like everyone else, we do not know when this pandemic will end, and we will continue remote production as long as conditions require it. It appears that working from home – in our case producing remotely – will likely be the new normal.But like everything that has come before, this too shall pass.– The PublisherTopics :
LAHORE: Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has lashed out at current Men in Green skipper Babar Azam and has questioned his decision-making ability following their defeat in the second T20I of the ongoing three-match series against England.England’s limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan scored an explosive half-century as the hosts chased down a record target of 196 to beat Pakistan by five wickets at the Old Trafford on Sunday. “Babar Azam looks like a lost cow to me. He is out there, not knowing what to do. It is important for him to take decisions on his own so that it could help him become a better captain in the coming times,” Akhtar said on his YouTube channel. “Babar will need to understand that the chances coming his way are not going to happen for the rest of his life, so he needs to make the most out of it,” he added. The ‘Rawalpindi Express’ also criticised the Pakistan team and its players for their insecure and confused nature. “Pakistan team are playing in a bio ‘insecure’ bubble, where each player is insecure. No one has an idea about whether they want to become a good captain or a good brand. “Confused selection, confused management, confused captain, confused team and confusion of everything. Teams are not made like this,” Akhtar said. IANSAlso Watch: Power Lines or Death Traps?
Published on September 20, 2012 at 2:35 am Contact David: email@example.com | @DBWilson2 Margus Hunt never expected to be here.He was supposed to be in London this past summer competing in discus throw in the Olympics. Instead, he spent the summer working out with the Southern Methodist football team in Dallas.“Ten years ago I knew that at that point I was going to be at the London Olympics this year,” Hunt said. “Things change, people change and you just have to make do with the decisions and opportunities ahead of you. … It’s been a fun ride.”Hunt arrived in Dallas from Karksi-Nuia, Estonia, in 2007 to train with Mustangs track and field coach Dave Wollman. But when Hunt finally arrived at SMU, the school had dropped its men’s program.Without the track and field scholarship, Hunt would have to leave Dallas and return to Estonia.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut he didn’t want to do that; he loved SMU too much. So at the suggestion of Wollman, Hunt began training with the football team, trying to earn a football scholarship as a defensive lineman.“I only had the financial possibility to come here for a year and we knew that it was going to be a long shot to get the program back,” Hunt said. “Once the one year started to come to an end, we were officially with a problem, whether or not I was going to have to go back to Estonia and try to figure something out.“I really didn’t want to leave SMU. I liked it over here. I liked Dallas, I liked the campus, I liked everything about it and, at that time, a lot of the football coaches were always in the weight room and they told me just to try out.”In just three years of playing organized football, Hunt has become one of the most intriguing prospects in college football. At 6 feet 8 inches and 280 pounds, the 25-year-old former track and field star still has been clocked running a 4.7 in the 40-yard dash.During the Mustangs’ 52-0 win over Stephen F. Austin, Hunt set an NCAA record with his ninth career blocked field goal. A week later, in a 48-3 loss to Texas A&M, Hunt blocked his 16th career kick, good for second on the all-time list.That kick-blocking ability comes from a rare combination of size and speed.“He has rare explosion,” Mustangs special teams coach Frank Gansz said. “If you just take the fact that he’s 6-8, you see those things. You watch him come off the ball and this guy’s a gifted athlete. He could probably do anything he wanted to, he could play basketball.”Ask Gansz about Hunt and he’ll spend minutes raving about the senior, not only about his physical ability, but how well he’s picked up the game in just three years.“He’s a very analytical-type kid,” Gansz said. “He understands things. … You’re better off sometimes having something that’s a blank slate and working with it than you are when he’s coached by a lot of different coaches.”One area where Hunt had to change was in his training.As a thrower, Hunt would exert large amounts of energy every 10 or so minutes. He wasn’t prepared for the every down play of college football. Game film from his freshman season often shows Hunt frequently patting his head to signal he needed to come out.“He’s never experienced that kind of training for, for that kind of athletic team,” said Wollman, the former SMU track and field coach and now Hunt’s personal trainer. “But now, after this past three years of conditioning and power, he’s as fit as any big man I’ve ever seen.”Hunt had never even heard of football growing up in Estonia. At least not the American version.“I played European football, which you know as soccer,” Hunt said with a laugh. “I never really knew that much about it when I came here.”Instead, Hunt was a world-class thrower. Hunt won gold medals in both the shot put and the discus throw in the Junior World Championships in Beijing.When he was younger, Hunt competed in nearly every track and field event. That has gone to help him become the dominant and versatile athlete he is today.“I used to do every event out there,” Hunt said. “That’s what my coach back home wanted me to do. He made me do every possible track and field event so I would be more athletic and more prepared, just dynamic.”Hunt still looks back on his journey, and it’s still unbelievable.The next step for him could be the NFL. Right now, Hunt still fits the bill as an under-the-radar prospect, likely destined for the second or third round. But where he has the best chance to raise his stock is at the NFL Draft Combine.In addition to Hunt’s 4.7 40-yard dash potential, the defensive lineman has also benched 225 pounds 35 times, cleared 384 pounds and snatched 345 pounds.And most important, he’ll just keep getting better.“This kid is an ascending player,” Gansz said. “He’s still got a ways to go, and I think he’s a great player. That’s the best thing about this guy, he’s an ascending athlete.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+

Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner said Kershaw “looked awesome” to him and he agreed “100 percent” with Roberts’ participation award.“Definitely,” Turner said. “I told (Kershaw) after he was done, ‘Seeing you back out there was awesome.’ He said, ‘I wish I could have done a little better.’ I told him, ‘You being back out there is as good as it gets.’”Getting Kershaw to lower his exacting standards and accept that was a tough sell even though Friday’s start was essentially a second rehab start made on a big-league mound.“No, I can’t (look at it that way),” Kershaw said. “I’m thankful that I got to come back. That’s definite. Steve and B-Mac (physical therapist Steve Smith and strength and conditioning coach Brandon McDaniel) have been with me non-stop to get me back and a lot of people put in a lot of work to help me get back. I understand that from that standpoint and I’m thankful for that. But at the same time, I’m out there to win. I’m out there to get guys out very consistently and I didn’t do that tonight.”Making his first big-league start since June 26 with only one three-inning rehab start to test his injured back, he gave up a solo home run to J.T. Realmuto on his sixth pitch, three hits and another run in the second inning and an infield single in the third. Kershaw threw 66 pitches in his three innings, allowed five hits, struck out five and didn’t walk a batter. He did become the first major-league pitcher to reach 150 strikeouts in a season with fewer than 10 walks (he has only walked nine batters in 124 innings this season).“Not great, obviously. I threw a lot of pitches,” he self-reported. “I was averaging 20-plus pitches an inning so regardless if the pitch count was in effect or not it probably would have been a short night.“You try to look at the positives and I got to pitch again so that’s good. But you don’t want to be a detriment to the team either. I’ll definitely try and pitch a little deeper next time.”Kershaw’s breaking pitches, in particular, did not have their usual bite and he acknowledged “I was in the middle of the plate more than I should be.” But his back “felt fine” even after a Matrix-like contortion to avoid Jose Fernandez’s liner through the box in the second inning and a twisting play to field Christian Yelich’s infield single in the third.The other stuff should be fixable with time and more innings of work.“They better be. Yeah, they better be. I think so,” Kershaw said. “I was throwing strikes. They just weren’t quality strikes. Get two strikes on a guy, I wasn’t able to finish him off quickly. They had long at-bats. Credit to them, they did well. But I think more than anything I wasn’t able to produce the quality strikes tonight consistently.”Kershaw is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday at Yankee Stadium, then lines up to face the second-place San Francisco Giants in the first game of their visit to Dodger Stadium Sept. 19-21. By then, the expectations might have risen. But for now, Roberts was philosophical about having a mere mortal Kershaw in his rotation.“Honestly, I think that he is as human as we all are,” Roberts said. “I think where we’re at as a club — we’re in a good spot. And so … yeah, if he would have been three, four innings scoreless, six punch(outs) — that would have been great. But you still have to look a little bit deeper than the numbers.”The Dodgers’ offensive numbers were pretty shallow Friday. The Marlins ace, Fernandez, held the Dodgers to three hits in seven scoreless innings.The Dodgers had opportunities against Fernandez early in the game. They had two runners on in each of the first two innings and Josh Reddick doubled with one out in the fourth.All five were stranded as the Dodgers went 0 for 5 with runners in scoring position against Fernandez. He retired 16 of the final 18 batters he faced, 12 on strikeouts while tying his career-high with 14 strikeouts in those seven innings.After Reddick’s double, the Dodgers didn’t get another runner past first base until Yasmani Grandal’s long home run off Marlins reliever Fernando Rodney in the ninth inning broke up the shutout. MIAMI >> It felt like a win to everyone but the man who took the loss.Seventy-five days after his most recent start — and nearly two months after he admitted doubting whether he would pitch again this season — Clayton Kershaw lasted just three innings in his return from the disabled list as the Dodgers lost 4-1 to the Miami Marlins Friday night.“Just to see him on the mound was great,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “And in talking to him after the start, he came back into the dugout and said he felt good.“Obviously every game is important. But for Clayton to be back on the mound, I think that’s a win for us.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
The fifth international basketball friendship tournament, which was opened on Thursday evening in the University Hall in Tuzla, gathered teams from six countries in Europe. This is a cadet basketball tournament that is traditionally organized by KK Salians Falcons from Tuzla.Group A is Salinas Falcons, Partizan Beograd, Vearlose Kopenhagen, Lattera Ivrea from Italy, and Group B is OKK Sloboda Tuzla, Yucetepespor from Ankara, Radnički-Foka Kragujevac and Trogir from Croatia.Last year’s winners, Yucetepespor from Ankara will defend their title at this tournament.This year BC Vaerlose from Copenhagen will participate as well, and they are in first place in Denmark and Skandinavia.The first games were played last night, and a lot of excitement is expected on the court on 1 September at the finals.
Egypt played their semi-final in Libreville on Wednesday, although they needed extra time and penalties to see off Burkina Faso after a 1-1 draw, veteran 44-year-old goalkeeper Essam El Hadary — already four times a winner of the competition — proving their hero in the shoot-out.Egyptian fans.– Formidable –The Egyptians had won three consecutive Cups of Nations between 2006 and 2010 but missed the last three tournaments amid political upheaval in the country before Argentine Hector Cuper led them to back onto the scene here.Like Broos, Cuper has a young squad, although there are four survivors from the team that won the title in 2010 in El Hadary, Ahmed Fathy, Mohamed Abdel-Shafi and the Hull City wing-back Ahmed Elmohamady.The Pharaohs have not exactly been a joy to watch — they have built their success under Cuper around a rock-solid defence that has only conceded one goal so far in Gabon, while they have relied heavily on the star quality of Mohamed Salah at the other end.“Egypt will not be very different to what we have seen so far, whether people like that or not, whether that means we will be attacking or not,” Cuper told reporters on Saturday.“What we will be looking for is a result and up to now we have had results.”Cuper, who has Arsenal midfielder Mohamd Elneny struggling with a calf injury, is eager to shake off his own reputation as a loser having suffered numerous agonising defeats in finals in his career.But Egypt have a quite formidable record in finals — just one defeat in eight Cup of Nations finals and two wins out of two on such occasions against Cameroon, with the first coming on penalties in Cairo in 1986.“It’s a great way to end the competition in the final but it will be even better if we win the cup,” said Elmohamady.Egyptians celebrateShare on: WhatsApp Action when Uganda took on Egypt. Egypt won 1-0 to march on into the final.Libreville, Gabon | AFP |Cameroon and Egypt are both aiming to cap remarkable revivals by winning the Africa Cup of Nations when they meet in a final that few thought possible in Libreville on Sunday evening.These are two of the most successful nations in the 60-year history of the competition, with Egypt unrivalled on seven titles and Cameroon, four-time winners, just behind alongside Ghana.But at the outset of the tournament in Gabon it was the likes of Algeria, Senegal and defending champions the Ivory Coast who were considered the favourites, with Egypt dark horses in their first appearance since 2010.Cameroon, meanwhile, came with what looked like their weakest ever squad, handicapped by the refusal of several leading players to accept call-ups from Belgian coach Hugo Broos.Yet the Indomitable Lions qualified from their group at the expense of the hosts and have since knocked out both Senegal and Ghana to make their first final since 2008.Then, with a side containing the likes of Rigobert Song and Samuel Eto’o, they lost 1-0 to the Egyptians in Ghana’s capital Accra.This current Cameroon side has no such big name stars but Broos has transformed their fortunes over the last 12 months and is now looking for them to make history.“For these young players — 14 of the 23 are playing at their first Cup of Nations — it is possibly a unique opportunity in their careers to win the trophy,” he said.Speaking to reporters on Saturday, captain Benjamin Moukandjo added: “Of course when you get to this stage you want to win but I think looking at the run we have had we have already done well.“I don’t think anyone here would have bet a cent on us beforehand and that’s a real shame.”Cameroon, who last won the title in 2002, have had 24 hours less time to recover and ready themselves for the game at the Stade de l’Amitie after second-half goals by Michael Ngadeu and Christian Bassogog gave them a 2-0 win against Ghana in Franceville on Thursday.
3 Jun 2013 England Golf Photographer Tom Ward passes away It is with much sadness that we learnt of the news that our good friend Tom Ward passed away this weekend. Tom was the official photographer for England Golf, and previously the English Golf Union, for over 12 years and was probably one of the most experienced photographers in the UK specialising in amateur golf championships. Tom’s passion and enthusiasm for his craft was always inspiring and his collection of images has provided a wonderful history for all that is great in the game we love. We will miss Tom and have many, many fond memories of him. Our condolences and thoughts are with Tom’s family. He was a talented man and was respected by many throughout the world of amateur golf and beyond.
