first_imgChelsea winger Pedro will join Serie A side Roma at the end of the season when his contract expires.The former Barcelona forward signed a short-term extension on Tuesday until the end of the season as his deal was going to expire at the end of the month.But Pedro had already agreed a deal in principle with Roma and was waiting for the Serie A club to reduce their wage bill to accommodate him.

USG race ends in Edwin-Austin victory

first_imgThe Undergraduate Student Government announced that USG Program Board Finance Director Edwin Saucedo and USG Director of University Affairs Austin Dunn are the winners of their presidential election during Tuesday’s Senate meeting.The Edwin-Austin ticket received 2,328, or 63.1 percent, of the votes, a 41 percent margin of victory over the rival ticket Charlie Henriquez and Cole Pham. Their ticket gained 834 votes, or 22.6 percent of the total.Newly elected USG President Edwin Saucedo was excited over his win and thanked his supporters.“We’re really excited for what’s to come, and we’re grateful for all the support we got from everyone and from our campaign team. We’re just happy to enjoy this moment,” Saucedo said. “I think opening our student government to the student body to show that we’re working for the student body. We need to make a difference to all of USC.”Saucedo’s running mate and new USG Vice President Austin Dunn was proud of the win despite a lower than expected voter turnout. He highlighted the transparency of their campaign as a key to their victory.“The voter turnout was a little bit lower than we expected, but we did as hard as we could,” Dunn said. “We ran a clean campaign; we were true to ourselves the entire time, very transparent, so this is just the icing on top of the cake. I’m super stoked for next year.”Saucedo and Dunn expressed gratitude for their campaign team and supporters.“Getting the team was the hard part, and getting a team that represented the whole student body or at least tapped into different communities. We don’t want it to look all the same,” Saucedo said.Henriquez was satisfied with his campaign.“It is what it is. I think we ran a great campaign,” Henriquez said. “We definitely stood out. We brought a different campaigning method to the student body. We ran hard; we called out everything we needed to call out.”The senatorial election results were also announced during the meeting. The ballot options changed this year; instead of voters choosing three greek senators, three commuter senators and six residential senators, the constituencies were discarded, and senatorial candidates ran uncategorized.The 12 Senators elected out of 20 candidates were Daniel Million, Paul Samaha, Josh Lurie, Daniel Newman, Kate Oh, Tyler Matheson, Alanna Schenk, Sabrina Enriquez, Tiffany Lian, Emily Lee, Tingyee Chang and Leena Danpour.Samaha promised to continue his advocacy for students and support issues in the face of an unresponsive administration.“I’m excited to continue working on the projects I’m advocating for and also bringing some new projects to the forefront of USG,” Samaha said. “To make sure mental health and college affordability remain two issues we students continue to press the administration on.”Results were announced by Associate Director of Election and Recruitment Logan Dallas. Dallas said 3,700 votes were cast this election. In last year’s election, 6,027 votes were cast. Despite this, she said she wasn’t concerned about voter turnout.“I’m excited for all the candidates that ran. It takes a lot of courage and a lot of work to do this; I’m really proud of everyone regardless of whether they got elected or not,” Dallas said. “Voting is down, but the passion of the people running is up, so I think they’re going to continue this trend of student engagement and making sure issues matter to students.”Current USG President Rini Sampath was nostalgic over the process and had a positive outlook for the future of USG.“I’m so excited for candidates that participated; it’s an exhilarating experience in and of itself, and of course for the candidate who won,” Sampath said. “I know it’s an incredible feeling to put all this work into something and reap the reward. I’m hopeful for the future of our organization and to see this kind of engagement from our campus.”last_img read more

Annenberg analyzes social media, cigarette brands

first_imgDr. Robert Kozinets, Jayne and Hans Hufschmid Chair of Strategic Public Relations at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, teamed with Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, an advocacy group from Washington, D.C. to conduct research in 10 countries to analyze social media and its hashtags regarding possible  cigarette brand marketing.In 1970, the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act was passed to deregulate cigarette advertising by the tobacco industry. However, instead of television and radio ads, tobacco industries are turning to social media to market their products. “The laws really only cover television, radios, newspapers and magazines,” Kozinets said. “They don’t cover social media, and [tobacco companies] are managing to find a way around those limitations because the laws are so slow-moving.”After five months, the research revealed that some social media users have been paid by tobacco companies or compensated with gifts. The researchers also found that certain parties that had free alcohol and giveaways were encouraging attendees to post pictures of themselves in addition to cigarette logos and design elements, resembling cigarette packages, which were in the background of many photos. “They noticed that tobacco companies seemed to be using social media and having a lot of postings by young people talking about parties and doing interesting things featuring cigarettes,” Kozinets said. “They knew that something was going on in a bunch of countries but they weren’t exactly sure what, so they contacted me to do some research with them around the world.”Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids decided to launch a petition with the Federal Trade Commission to start spreading the word. “I think students at USC and elsewhere need to be very aware that there’s a lot of money at stake when they start smoking as students,” Kozinets said. “When you get someone to start when they’re young, they are a smoker for life. Tobacco companies know this, and that’s why they’ve been made to promise that they weren’t going to advertise, but for some reason, our legislation has not kept up with the fact that influencers in social media are a form of advertising.”According to Kozinets, the University tries to emphasize moral and ethical elements in academics. For example, it offers a course based on ethical marketing. “In the real world, that doesn’t always happen,” Kozinets said. “You get a lot of gray areas where companies do the unethical things rather than the ethical things, and this study points out how important it is for us to do research that can reveal what’s really going on in these areas because it’s really hard to piece it together.”last_img read more

#AFCONonCiti: Keimune own goal earns Morocco slim win over Namibia

first_imgRicardo Manetti (Coach, Namibia)“We play in the group of death and we are the underdogs, but I am proud of what we have done today. Most of my players play in domestic league. I’m disappointed that we didn’t get at least a point because we deserved a draw. We will an important role in determining the fate of this group. Morocco is a very strong team and they are favorites for the title.” Namibia striker Itamunua Keimune scored on the wrong end of the pitch as the Southern Africans lost 1-0 to Morocco in their Total Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Egypt 2019 Group D opener at the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo on Sunday.The Brave Warriors looked well on course to collect a valuable point against one of the tournament’s favourites, but Keimune headed the ball into his own net with only two minutes left on the clock as he tried to defend a Hakim Ziyech free-kick.The Southern Africans had lived by their name, holding their own against the Moroccans for most of the match before the single moment of error gifted the Atlas Lions three valuable points.Coach Herve Renard’s men had struggled to break down a resolute Namibian defence and often tried their luck on set pieces, one of which gave the desired result late on.They had the chances to score especially in the second half with Sofiane Boufal coming on, but luck never stood their end until the own goal.The Atlas Lions camped in Namibia’s half passing the ball around with ease while Namibia stuck to their defensive lines. They had their first chance in the 10th minute when Nabil Dibar tried his luck from distance with the Namibian keeper smothering the effort behind for a corner.Namibia responded on the other end with a similar chance, but skipper Ronald Ketjijere lifted his effort a bit over the bar.Hakim Ziyech was enterprising for the Atlas Lions in attack and had two chances, first shooting just wide from the edge of the box after the defense failed to clear the ball in the 23rd minute.Nine minutes to the break, the Ajax Amsterdam forward picked the ball from distance before dancing away from his markers, but the eventual bullet off his boot flew straight to the keeper.Morocco added more pressure in the second half with Ziyech again coming close in the 72nd minute but Namibian keeper Loydt Kazapua saved with his feet after the striker’s effort was deflected by the defense.The introduction of Southampton striker Sofiane Boufal spiced up Morocco’s attack. Twice, Ziyech slalomed into shooting range, but he could not wrap his boot around the ball well to direct it into the net.From a set piece in the 88th minute, Ziyech struck in an in-swinging freekick and Keimune, in a bid to clear off ended up directing it past his own keeper.Total Man of the Match: Mbark Boussoufa (Morocco)What they saidM’barak Boussoufa (Man of the match)“We were the better side and missed many chances. The first game is always difficult. We are happy to win even by a slim margin. We hope to continue on good results and to perform better next time.”Herve Renard (Coach, Morocco)“I salute Namibia coach on his team’s performance. We faced an expected challenge and it was tough to keep the rhythm because of the hot atmosphere that will cause trouble to all teams. First game is always tough and what happened today proves this. We face Cote d’Ivoire next and we have to get ready for that important match.” Source: CAFlast_img read more

Perry steamrolls Oliver; Langley nips Schenley

first_imgBIG WIN—Perry quarterback Greg McGhee completed 11 of 15 passes for 225 yards and threw for three touchdowns in the Commodore’s 35-0 win over North Side rival Oliver. (Photo by William McBride) Perry’s defense also held Oliver to 60 yards total offense, including -30 on the ground.“As a team, we played well,” said Mc­Ghee. “We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, and we did what we could to prepare ourselves during the week. We studied film and worked hard in practice and we were rewarded with a win.”Langley 21, Schenley 18Langley posted a key victory when they knocked off Schenley, 21-18, at Cupples Stadium on Saturday.Austin Turner scored on a 30-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Jaquan Green with 3:27 left in the game to win it for Langley.“It felt good,” said Turner. “I went on the fade route, and (Green) saw me in the end zone. I jumped over (the defender) and got it, that simple.”Langley’s Deyshawn Martin returned the opening kickoff 87 yards for a score.Later on the quarter, with 6:15 left, Myles Catlin took a 4-yard run into the end zone to even things up at six.“There were points in the game where we could’ve been more effective,” Langley coach Kenny Wright said. “But I am happy with the progress that this team is making.”Joey Bell scored on a 23-yard touchdown run with 3:26 in the first quarter.Later, Schenley’s DeAndre Black returned a punt 93 yards for a touchdown. And with 5:02 left in the third quarter, Andre Reed put the Spartans ahead, 18-13, with a 3-yard TD run. But in the fourth quarter their 16 penalties for 113 yards would be problematic for Schenley to close out the game.“We don’t yet understand that there are four quarters in a football game,” Schenley coach Jason Bell said. “That is the reason that we gave them good opportunities to make plays and eventually beat us.”Langley went winless in 2009. They’re looking to improve to the point that they were 2008 when they made the post-season with a .500 conference record.“We’re pleased with some of the changes that we were able to make over the past year,” Wright said. “I think we’re ready to get back to winning again.”Allderdice 27,Peabody 16Allderdice continued to improve on its struggles in recent years by added another one to the win column by defeating the Highlanders.Patrick Ferguson rushed for 170 yards and two touchdowns. Mike Pfleger and Jaylen Wilkins also scored on runs of 7 and 6 yards.The Dragons remained undefeated with the win, and Peabody stayed winless.Brashear also defeated Westinghouse, 41-6, Thursday night.(Follow our continuing coverage of City League Football and add your comments to our website at www.new­pittsburgh­courier­online.com.)

21st Century Cracks: Turrientes, the new Xabi Alonso de la Real

first_imgFootball was instilled in him from a young age. Roberto, his father, was part of the Beasain squad that achieved promotion to Second B in the 1991-92 season. In fact, he was the captain of that team. In his childhood, Beñat was always hit by a ball and well advised by his father.Real Sociedad, aware of the enormous potential it has, shielded him last September: renewed until 2025. The extension of his contract was published on the club’s website with a photo in which he posed with Aperribay in Anoeta, in a sample of how important this player is in the club. As usual when a player stands out at Real, his name soon began to be associated with Athletic. Given these rumors, in San Sebastián they hit the table to ensure that Turrientes continues for many years defending the Real shirt. At the moment he is one of the leaders of Juvenil A, but it will not take him long to go to the branch. There he will meet Xabi Alonso. Teacher and student will soon unite their paths … The Royal Society is, historically, a magnificent factory of midfielders. In recent years, the main reference for this prolific quarry has been Xabi Alonso, who triumphed in San Sebastián to later do so also in Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern. Later Illarramendi arrived and now in Zubieta they already have another midfielder marked in red: Beñat Turrientes (Beasain, Guipúzcoa, 2002).It is an organizing midfielder, with a long journey. A profile very similar to that of Xabi Alonso, although with a little more arrival. It can operate in both the role of ‘6’ and that of ‘8’. On the defensive parcel he has an innate ability to always be well placed, anticipating the rival’s move to cut passes and accumulate recoveries. In the organization, he always offers help, has a good vision of the game and a long displacement that makes him unpredictable in construction. It also has a good shot when it looks out into the area.last_img read more

Giroux came to Thursday’s event wearing an Irving jersey.“It’s amazing,” he said, adding “it makes it even cooler” that Irving in late 2016 expressed support on Twitter for tribal efforts to lead the battle against the pipeline, which opponents believe threatens the tribe’s Missouri River water supply. Thousands of people traveled to the reservation area in 2016 and 2017 to protest, with hundreds being arrested. The pipeline began operating in June 2017, but the Standing Rock tribe is leading a court battle to try to shut it down.Kyrie Irving discussed his Sioux heritage during a January 2017 interview with ESPN, saying “there’s a home connection” with the tribe’s pipeline struggles and that he wanted to have a legacy outside of basketball. Irving this year asked Nike to put Standing Rock’s seal on a new sneaker. He also has a tattoo of the Standing Rock logo on his neck. Thursday’s visit left him with an even greater appreciation of his roots.“I had no idea how inclusive this group is and what it means to be part of Standing Rock, be part of the united Sioux nation,” he said.Irving, who won an NBA championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016, was born in Australia and grew up in West Orange, New Jersey.
