Cw

first_imgSir, Congratulations Cherwell on your fabulous Cw arts/features pullout! As well as your sexy layout and gorgous pix, I just love John Kettle’s ‘On the Town’ column! It’s high time this University’s main student paper had a supplement that combines sharp writing with killer looks. You guys totally pull it off. May I voice my concerns however at your misogynistic and outmoded ‘Fit Sportswoman of the Week’. It is exploitative, tacky, and demeaning to all the independent women working their bollocks off to get a degree here. You are celebrating male chauvanism above female sporting achievement. Naughty Cherwell! Yours, Sanchez Cohen, KebleARCHIVE: 2nd Week TT 2003last_img read more

New Colombian Military High Command Named To Serve Under President Santos

first_imgBy Dialogo July 28, 2010 Outgoing Colombian president Álvaro Uribe’s administration announced the new armed forces high command that will serve under Juan Manuel Santos, who takes office on 7 August. Adm. Édgar Cely was designated as the new commander of the armed forces (the highest position within the armed forces), replacing Army Gen. Freddy Padilla, who submitted his resignation in May, effective 7 August. Cely, fifty-eight years old, has wide experience in military strategy, since he was one of the military personnel who created Task Force Omega, an elite force specialized in fighting leftist guerrilla groups in the country’s jungles. With graduate studies in security and national defense, in addition to a specialization in international relations and humanitarian law, Cely has been head of operations for the National Navy, director of the War College, and naval attaché at the Colombian embassy in Great Britain. The defense minister, Gabriel Silva, also announced that Gen. Alejandro Navas has been named the new commander of the Army, Adm. Álvaro Echandía will be the new commander of the National Navy, and Maj. Gen. Julio Alberto Gonzáles will be the commander of the Air Force. At the same time, Gen. Oscar Naranjo was confirmed as the national director of the police. The new military high command is well known to Santos, who was defense minister for two years, until May of last year, when he gave up the position in order to launch his presidential campaign.last_img read more

Tandem puts it all together

first_img Press Association Tandem was the best horse on show at Navan and showed all of his Flat quality in the navanracecourse.ie Maiden Hurdle. “We’ll look for a winners’ of one and go from there. He was unlucky not to win in Galway. He’s a big powerful horse, a very strong horse. We still have homework to do on his jumping. It was satisfactory today, but will get better.” Icy Reply had to pull out all the stops to justify 15-8 favouritism in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Mares Hurdle. Dessie Hughes’ grey seemed in trouble as the front-running Urtheoneiwant quickened clear two out, with Mark Enright working hard on the market leader. But she eventually knuckled down and improved to jump the last in unison with the long-time leader, and stuck her neck out to pass the post three-quarters of a length to the good. Hughes said: “It’s a nice race to find for her. We were going to run in the beginners chase at Kilbeggan last night and she has been schooled over fences. “She jumped a bit scatty there and maybe didn’t know what we were doing. We saw this race and the conditions looked right. She’s done well for a four-year-old. She’ll go chasing now as she’ll get great allowances.” Brand Ambassador (12-1) had been sidelined for two years heading into the Navan Welcomes Owners Today Maiden Hurdle, but he lacked nothing in the way of fitness and registered a six-and-a-half-length success for Gordon Elliott and Barry Geraghty. Jarob (12-1) came up short over the larger obstacles at the Galway Festival but was a different proposition in the Racing Again Saturday 27th September Handicap Hurdle and after taking up the running before the last, sped away to beat Tico by eight lengths. Coldstonesober (8-1) quickened into a clear lead between the last two in the Follow Navan On Facebook Handicap Hurdle and the move proved decisive as he held Blue Ridge Lane at bay. center_img Sent off the 1-2 favourite to atone for a defeat at Galway on his jumping bow, the Dermot Weld-trained five-year-old was always to the fore and hardly broke sweat to score by three and a quarter lengths. His trainer said: “He did it impressively. He just missed the last and still has plenty to learn. When he puts it all together he’s potentially a very high-class hurdle horse. last_img read more

Over the past seven days, the team has put together an 89 wRC+, which ranks 23rd. The issue is Snell has failed to make it past the fifth inning in three of his previous four starts. I refuse to believe this is going to be the version of Snell we’re going to get for the rest of the year. He’s nothing but a GPP play, but it could be a fruitful play at that.C: Travis d’Arnaud, Rays @ Twins. If he continues to lead off, I’ll continue to have interest. He’s priced really nicely across the industry, and considering TB is on the road, they’re guaranteed ninth-inning at-bats, which is ideal.MORE TUESDAY MLB: SP rankings | Fantasy Alarm PRO tools1B: Trey Mancini, Orioles vs. Padres. Logan Allen may be a top-100 prospect who showed out in his first professional start, but pitching in San Diego and pitching in Baltimore are the polar opposite to one another. This game has a massive 10.5 implied run total, and righthanded swingers gave Allen issues at Triple-A. Mancini is rolling at the dish, slashing .353/.450/.765 over his past 10 games, and has a .415 wOBA vs. LHPs this year.2B: Ketel Marte, Diamondbacks vs. Dodgers. The pace he’s on is unsustainable, but Marte has a seven-game multi-hit streak in which he’s gone 19-for-29 with three home runs, three doubles and a triple, and he’s even chipped in with a stolen base. Ross Stripling is going to be limited and won’t pitch too deep into this game, so Marte will get a couple at-bats against an average Dodgers ‘pen.SS: J.P. Crawford, Mariners @ Brewers. I don’t love his price on DK, but on FD it’s quite enticing. Crawford has been on fire slashing .333/.426/.487 over his past 10 games.

Five things learned from the Premier League

first_imgMan. United players celebrate. They beat Brighton 1-0 to close the gap on Man.CityLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City maintained their march towards the Premier League title with a gripping win at Huddersfield, while Ashley ensured Manchester United remain their closest rivals.Liverpool and Chelsea shared the spoils, but Alexis Sanchez lifted Arsenal.Here AFP Sport looks at five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend:City a team for all seasonsTrailing to a Nicolas Otamendi own goal on a rain-lashed, freezing afternoon at Huddersfield, for Manchester City this was an acid test. The cynics who greeted Pep Guardiola’s arrival in England with taunts about the Spaniard not knowing what it takes to win in the league’s most inhospitable venues were about to start crowing. But City had the perfect response as Sergio Aguero equalised from the penalty spot before Raheem Sterling’s late winner moved the leaders eight points clear of second placed Manchester United. Guardiola admitted he was delighted with the way City had coped with the test. “The Premier League is so tough, now winter has come, we knew they were so aggressive so strong, but we are so happy for the way we won,” Guardiola said. Can anyone stop them now? Post-injury Hazard is back to his bestAn ankle injury sustained during the close season meant Eden Hazard did not make his first Premier League start until the last day in September, but having been gently eased back into action by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, he is now back to his devastating best. He was head and shoulders above everyone else on the pitch in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at Liverpool, fully exploiting his licence to roam in support of lone striker Alvaro Morata by dropping deep to gather the ball before weaving past befuddled defenders, his touch so sure and precise as to be uncanny. Conte opted for a 3-5-1-1 system at Anfield, meaning an extra central midfielder played instead of a wide forward like Pedro and Willian, but thanks to the irrepressible Hazard, Chelsea’s counter-attacking play still brimmed with menace. Here’s our take on the game… #LIVCHEhttps://t.co/SGUfpmsWjL— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) November 25, 2017Spurs title bid is overTottenham won many admirers over the previous two seasons as they pushed for the Premier League title but this year’s challenge is all but over after a costly draw against managerless West Brom. Spurs’ record against the other members of the “Big Six” is poor but their inability to finish off less-exalted opponents has been equally costly this season. They have garnered just three points in home matches against Burnley, Swansea and West Brom and are now realistically too far off the pace. Asked after the match if the gap to leaders Manchester City was too big to bridge, Pochettino conceded: “Yes it is true.” When City won on Sunday to make it a 13-point gap, Pochettino’s worst fears were confirmed. He may have been denied today’s winning goal but @Youngy18 was still pleased with an important three points… pic.twitter.com/ywMRHYCRLd— Manchester United (@ManUtd) November 25, 2017Sanchez ends away-day bluesOnly seconds remained at Turf Moor as Arsenal contemplated the extension of their miserable away record this season. Arsenal had earned just four points away from home this season and, with Mesut Ozil absent due to illness, they were labouring to break down a well-drilled Burnley defence. But Arsene Wenger’s side refused to accept their fate and Aaron Ramsey drew a needless shove from James Tarkowski deep into stoppage-time, earning a penalty that Alexis Sanchez slotted home. Arsenal are up to fourth place and encouragingly for Wenger, have now won all six league games in which both Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette have started.Important win today, Burnley didn’t make it easy for us but the lads kept going ?? #WeAreTheArsenal pic.twitter.com/7YAGFYT2MD— Per Mertesacker (@mertesacker) November 26, 2017center_img ?️ Mauricio gives his assessment of today’s 1-1 draw with West Brom at Wembley. pic.twitter.com/RtvPE1cT4m— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) November 25, 2017Ashley Young reinventedAshley Young joined Manchester United from Aston Villa in 2011 as a flying winger but has reinvented himself as a left wing-back and has forced his way into Jose Mourinho’s starting line-up, keeping out more specialist defenders. While never a prolific goalscorer for United, Young gives the team an extra attacking dimension, shown on Saturday when his shot midway through the second half found its way into Brighton’s net via a cruel deflection. “That was a tough one today, big 3 points in the end! Come on @premierleague…my shot was going on target, I’ve waited long enough for a goal,” Young tweeted. But the plea fell on deaf ears — it was marked down as a Lewis Dunk own goal.That was a tough one today, big 3 points in the end!

Cowboys release Michael Sam from practice squad

first_imgDallas Cowboys practice squad player defensive end Michael Sam speaks to reporters after team practice at the team’s headquarters in Irving, Texas. (AP Photo/LM Otero, File)IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys released defensive end Michael Sam from the practice squad Tuesday, another setback as the NFL’s first openly gay player tries to make an active roster during the regular season for the first time.Sam spent seven weeks with the Cowboys after signing to their practice squad on Sept. 3, four days after he was among the final cuts by the St. Louis Rams at the end of the preseason.The Rams drafted the former SEC defensive player of the year from Missouri late in the seventh round in May. He was pick No. 249 out of 256. Sam had three sacks in the preseason with St. Louis playing mostly against second- and third-stringers.The Cowboys are among the league’s worst in sacks but have been getting solid production with a rotation in the front four of a defense exceeding expectations.Dallas also has rookie second-round pick DeMarcus Lawrence close to coming back after breaking his right foot in training camp. He was placed on short-term injured reserve and will be eligible to play next week against Arizona.Veteran defensive end Anthony Spencer has been getting stronger each week in his return from microfracture knee surgery that sidelined him all but one game last season.The Cowboys (6-1), off to their best start since they were 12-1 in 2007, are playing their second straight NFC East opponent at home, with Washington (2-5) visiting Monday night.While releasing Sam, the Cowboys added linebacker Troy Davis of Central Florida and defensive tackle Ken Bishop of Northern Illinois to their practice squad.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more

Middletown School Budget Includes Hiring New Security Officers

first_imgBy Jay Cook  |MIDDLETOWN – On the heels of yet another fatal school shooting earlier in the day, this time in Maryland, Middletown’s Board of Education took steps on Tuesday, March 20 to help ensure each of its 17 schools will be safer and more secure in the future.At the introduction of the district school budget hearing, Middletown schools’ business administrator Amy Gallagher said one of the “bigger areas” in the 2018-2019 budget focuses on creating 15 new “Safe School Officer” roles. The spending plan calls for a $455,952 expenditure for safe school officers, which Gallagher called “SSOs.”The four security guards currently split between the district’s two high schools – Middletown North and Middletown South – are to be retrained and become part of that team.“As you may or may not know, right now we don’t have security guards specifically assigned to the elementary schools,” Gallagher said. “This would assign security guards to the elementary schools and also bolster what we have in the middle schools and high schools.”Earlier in the day, authorities in Maryland said a 17-year-old male student shot and wounded three other students at Great Mills High School with a handgun before he was stopped and died after a gun fight with an armed school resource officer on duty at the high school. One of the victims, a 16-year old girl, died later on Tuesday.Middletown Schools Superintendent William O. George explained to about 35 parents in attendance how proposed SSOs are different from school resource officers. The main difference, George said, is that an SSO would not be permitted to carry a concealed firearm into the school. He emphasized that option is not on the table right now. SSOs are also school employees, while school resource officers are police department employees.An SSO “works directly with the school system and will not be carrying a weapon but would be a retired law enforcement professional with background and training with other responsibilities in the school,” George explained.George said school security discussions, in Middletown and across the county, have increased and accelerated recently. He met with the Monmouth County Superintendent of Schools’ roundtable, has had talks with the Monmouth County Police Chief Association and will meet soon with the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office as well as other state departments, said George.“Maintaining a hardened front” is the main benefit of having an SSO in each of Middletown’s schools, George said.While supportive of proposed security increases, some concerned parents spoke up during public comment to question the viability of retired professionals and whether or not concealed carry should be an option.“If they don’t have any type of weapon, then what’s the difference between (an SSO) and just a retired elderly person running around if the school gets breached?” questioned resident Jen Rosen.“I think a trained law enforcement professional is fantastic – I think they add a value – but my question is on the age and the fitness,” she continued. “We’re talking about people who are retired for a reason.”Maryellen Chappell, who has children in three district schools, said her husband is a retired police officer and that she wholly supports having an armed officer in the schools“The time is now. We just had a shooting today. And you know what, there was one fatality, but that’s one fatality too much,” Chappell said. “But that guy was taken out by a security guard that was trained to take that person out.”George reaffirmed that Middletown schools “are not having armed, concealed carry at this time,” but added this process could “create the opportunity for that in the future if that’s the direction over time.”Also part of the budget increases to school security were a $160,000 cost for replacing the public address system at Middletown South, as well as at least $100,000 budgeted for replacing secure APR doors at the elementary schools.The push for improved infrastructure highlights a two-year initiative where Middletown’s schools have budgeted $2.3 million over the past two years for security and surveillance measures.The 2018-2019 proposed budget of approximately $141.6 million includes an estimated 1.8 percent school levy increase to homeowners in Middletown. A homeowner with a home assessed at the average value of $423,427 would pay approximately an additional $156 under the spending plan. The tax levy would generate over $2.4 million in new revenue for the school district.The tentative budget will be voted on at the Board’s March 28 meeting and a public hearing and final adoption will likely occur at the April 25 meeting.This article was first published in the March 22-29, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more
