Magician gave Aidan O’Brien his ninth victory in the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh. Press Association Sent off at 100-30 and ridden by the trainer’s son, Joseph, the colt followed a strong pace set firstly by Ask Dad, and then by the Jim Bolger representative Trading Leather, who still looked in control with a couple of furlongs remaining. O’Brien junior never panicked and Magician powered clear to end up a convincing winner, with Gale Force Ten completing a Ballydoyle one-two. O’Brien junior, winning his third Irish 2,000 Guineas, said: “He’s a very, very tough horse and tries very hard. He stays well, he handles fast ground, he relaxes. He’s a horse that is improving every day. “We went a nice gallop, I was always very happy throughout the whole race. I was able to dictate things my own way. “After passing the three (furlong marker) I was very, very happy. I thought it would take a really, really good one to come and get me. He galloped all the way to the line. He has loads of pace. I think the key to him is fast ground. “He settles very well and he has a great attitude – I couldn’t say he wouldn’t get further than 10 furlongs, either.” Coolmore supremo John Magnier told At The Races: “He did it well you have to say, he was impressive. This is an improving horse and being by Galileo he should stay further. “We’ll discuss it (plans), but all there are all kinds of options. We could go the St James’s Palace route, and we’ve done crazy things before – we could run him at Epsom or go for the Eclipse. I’m saying that (Epsom) tongue in cheek, but we could. We’ll savour the moment and not get carried away.”
Nearly 30 percent of female undergraduate students at USC have experienced some form of sexual assault or misconduct since attending the University, according to respondent results from a university campus climate survey released Monday. The survey, which was administered last spring, drew responses from just over 8,000 students, or 19.4 percent of those enrolled in a USC degree program.“It’s hard to draw any hard conclusions from a participation rate of 19 percent,” said Vice Provost of Student Affairs Ainsley Carry in a press briefing Monday morning. “We will take the responses that we have and do the best job we can with the data in front of us.”USC’s survey was part of a larger organizing effort by the Association of American Universities to administer sexual assault climate surveys to 27 colleges across the country. Of the 21 schools that have released individual data, USC, along with the University of Michigan, had the highest percentage of sexual assault among undergraduate womenOn other data points, the University numbers were in line with the AAU’s survey national averages released Monday, Carry said, though he thought the averages were still too high. “What I cannot emphasize enough is one incident of sexual assault on our campus is too much,” he said. “We have got to end this.”The forms of sexual misconduct covered in the survey were nonconsensual penetration and nonconsensual sexual touching. In the last school year, 17.3 percent of female undergraduates said they had experienced some form of this misconduct. Instances involving female undergraduates were considerably greater than male undergraduates, with 6.8 percent male respondents reporting an instance of sexual misconduct since entering USC, and 4 percent reporting an instance within the past year. There was also a large disparity between graduate and undergraduate students, with 4.2 percent of female graduate students reporting either nonconsensual penetration or nonconsensual sexual touching. Alcohol was a prevailing factor in the majority of the cases, an issue Carry said may necessitate expanding outreach programs on the substance’s effects. “We found with the majority students involved in nonconsensual penetration, alcohol was involved in one or both parties,” he said. “So we have to ramp up our education on alcohol consumption.” In response to the Monday’s survey results, the University will be holding open conversations and forums with the USC community in the coming weeks to discuss the data and what can be done to further alleviate the frequency of sexual assault and misconduct. The school is also looking into implementing mandatory sexual assault education for all grade levels, as well as rolling out bystander education courses. The survey showed that 75.7 percent of those who said they were a bystander to sexual assault or misconduct did nothing. The above measures are meant to build off a string of changes rolled out over the past two years working to revamp USC’s sexual assault-related programming and procedures. These changes include the University expanding and relocating the Center for Women and Men to the Engemann Student Health Center, implementing an amnesty policy for those who report or witness sexual misconduct under the influence of alcohol and hiring a full time Title IX investigator who solely investigates cases of sexual misconduct at USC.In light of the survey, some students said it was indicative that more work needs to be done to reduce the frequency of incidents. “It either means that we have a problem or it means that the problem has existed for a long time and it’s just that people are speaking more against it now,” said Harry Lam, a sophomore majoring in business administration, regarding the data.Accessibility to reporting cases of sexual assault is also an problem, said Shyann Murphy, executive director of the Women’s Student Assembly. She said students need to more privy to a reporting process that is shrouded in “legalese.” “In order to increase reporting rates, every student needs to know what sexual misconduct is and be familiar with the whole process,” she said. “Those are a lot of shame that come along with reporting and admitting you’ve been a victim of sexual assault.”With the survey data, Murphy said now is a great jumping off point to move forward in sexual assault prevention. “I’m glad that USC did the survey because now that they have it proven there’s an actual issue, we can look at different avenues in providing resources and changing campus culture,” she said.

They’re looking for people who can relate to the veterans in their care. “What we really need veterans for is to interact with other veterans and provide companionship,” said Volunteer Program Manager, Kathy Lietaert. “They may spend time visiting with the veteran, sharing stories, listening to the veteran tell stories that they maybe haven’t even shared with their own families before.”Lietaert added that one in four patients they treated last year in Alpena were veterans, so there is a large number of people who could use this kind of support. “Somebody that can understand their story, somebody that can understand the experience they went through, or maybe someone who understands the military service in general and can relate.”To find out how to apply you can visit their website at HOM.org or you can call Kathy Lietaert at (231) 779–5409.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: hospice of michiganContinue ReadingPrevious APS superintendent offers tours of Besser and Wilson Elementary Schools ahead of bond electionNext City of Alpena Planning and Development Director moves to Chamber of Commerce
He broke the first national record in 2012. And then another. And another.It’s quite clear this 24-year old is a bit special.Ghana’s new javelin record holder John Ampomah is bullish about prospects of qualifying for the upcoming World Championship in Beijing.Ampomah set the national record after throwing 76.50m to comfortably win his third outdoor competition in Alabama a fortnight ago.Habitual record-breakerHis new personal best replaces the previous record (set by himself) of 75.99m, set at the CAA African Championships in August 2015 where he placed fifth overall. Ampomah, who was part of Ghana’s team that won six medals in Marrakech at last year’s African Championships – the highest total by the country since 2006 – tells Joy Sports that he’s excited at blazing the trail in his discipline. “It’s been a while now since we started having throwers in the Ghana team, so I’m very excited that am blazing the trail and making it to this level.””Qualifying for the World Championship is my target at the moment. I’m so looking forward to it and I hope to make an impression at the competition in Beijing in August.”The 2012 African Championship silver medalist broke onto the scene in 2012, breaking the 19-year old national record with a throw of 69.00m in March 2012 in Tamale.Then he went on to beat the record two more times at the African Championships, where he won silver, and at the 2012 rlg Grand Prix in Kumasi where he threw 73.69m. TrajectoryAmpomah, who was Ghana’s co-captain at the 2014 African Championships, is one of the first three athletes who benefited from the Ghana Athletics Association’s Education Trust Fund.He left for the USA in January 2012, alongside Doreen Agyei and Atsu Nyamadi with the support of then Minister of Youth and Sports, Hon.

The words sounded soothing as Lakers public address announcer Lawrence Tanter spoke. “The Philadelphia 76ers associate head coach is Mike D’Antoni,” Tanter said.The sell-out crowd at Staples Center then offered absolutely no reaction before the Lakers played the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday. No cheers. No boos. Nothing. The noise at Staples Center sounded different when D’Antoni coached the Lakers from 2012-14. Then, he heard constant boos and pleas from Lakers fans wishing for Phil Jackson to patrol the sidelines instead. In D’Antoni’s first year, Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard disliked the system’s pace and less focus on post play, while Steve Nash and role players loved the freedom afforded to perimeter players. D’Antoni met more support his second season amid a roster full of role players on one-year contracts, but he faced resistance from Kobe Bryant, Gasol, Chris Kaman and Jordan Hill. “You’re asking guys to play a different style at age of 30 or 36. Guys are not as receptive,” said Lakers forward Metta World Peace, who played for D’Antoni his first season. “We would’ve done better if we had a post-up style offense.”More challenges emerged. After firing Mike Brown five games into the 2012-13 season, the Lakers hired D’Antoni without affording him a training camp. He then oversaw a roster for the next two seasons that missed a combined 503 games due to injuries. Lakers coach Byron Scott also criticized D’Antoni as a Time Warner Cable SportsNet analyst during the 2013-14 season. But Scott sounded more diplomatic on Friday.“Mike’s a good guy,” Scott said. “From our run-ins with him, we’ve always been very cordial. I don’t think that’ll change.” Perhaps that explains why D’Antoni politely declined to talk about his tenure with the Lakers, which included a 67-87 record, countless injuries, mixed support for his fast-paced system and subpar defensive performances. D’Antoni resigned on April, 30, 2014, amid the Lakers’ refusal to assure him they would exercise his team option for the 2015-16 season.“I love you guys, but I’m going over here,” D’Antoni said to two Lakers reporters before sitting along the Sixers’ bench. “You know how nice that is?”Since the Sixers hired D’Antoni, Philadelphia have acquired point guard Ish Smith from New Orleans and entered Friday’s game as winners of two of their past three contests. Sixers coach Brett Brown called D’Antoni an “offensive mind” and a “good person.” “You got this buffet you can pick and choose what’s best for the players,” said Brown, who also was a Spurs assistant for nine years. “How do you put them in places where they can succeed?”D’Antoni sparked criticism for that issue.
