Sterling pens letter to racially abused boy, says ‘stand tall’

first_img0Shares0000Raheem Sterling sent a letter to 13-year-old Ethan Ross after hearing he had been racially abused at school telling him to stand tall and be proud of who you are © AFP / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 11 – Manchester City star Raheem Sterling sent a letter to a 13-year-old goalkeeper after hearing he had been racially abused advising him to “stand tall and be proud of who you are”.Sterling himself was the subject of alleged racist abuse from Chelsea fans in a Premier League match in December. He wrote the letter on club headed paper when informed by Ethan Ross’s grandmother he had been “through a tough time with racial abuse.”Ross, a goalkeeper with the Under-14 team at fourth-tier Newport County, had been racially abused at his school.“Dear Ethan, I have recently been told from your loving Nanna Sue about the tough time you are having with racial abuse,” wrote Sterling, who also enclosed signed photographs of the Manchester City squad.“Remember to stand tall and be proud of who you are and don’t let them take away your courage. You are strong and very brave, and your Nanna is also very proud of you. Keep being you kid.“Remember speaking up doesn’t always make life easy, but easy never changed anything.”Ross took to Instagram when he received the letter on Saturday.“OMG just got this in the post from Raheem Sterling! Signed by all the Man City players. Thank you so much Raheem Sterling for the support,” Ross wrote on Instagram.His grandmother, who did not wish to give her full name, told The Times that Sterling’s gesture had done wonders for Ross’s morale.“When I took the package over to him you should have seen the look on his face —- he was overwhelmed,” said the 62-year-old.“There is nothing I could say to Raheem to thank him enough because it has really boosted Ethan’s confidence.“I can hear it in his voice. He has shown the letter to his friends and it has just gone absolutely mad.”Ross’s grandmother said she had written to Sterling when she read about the alleged racist abuse incident at Stamford Bridge which led to Chelsea banning four supporters pending further investigations.The grandmother said she hoped the letter from Sterling — who was born in Jamaica but came to England aged five with his mother after his father was gunned down — had been read by others and would serve to do some good.Despite the abuse Ross showed the same steeliness 24-year-old Sterling — capped 47 times by England — has done on the pitch.“After all he has been through last year, Ethan’s grades still went up —- so we are immensely proud of him,” his grandmother said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Teen in attack scheme to be tried as adult

first_imgSYLMAR – One of two former Quartz Hill High School students charged with planning a Columbine-style attack at the school will be tried as a adult. The 17-year-old boy, whose name won’t be released until he is formally charged Monday in Antelope Valley Superior Court, was found unfit to be tried as a juvenile after an all-day Juvenile Court hearing Thursday, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office officials said. A 16-year-old co-defendant last month was ordered tried as a juvenile because state law says juveniles must be at least 16 at the time of the offense to be tried as an adult. The younger boy was 15 when the two were arrested in December. Both boys remain in county juvenile facilities, officials said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

DD HEALTH: BE CAUTIOUS ABOUT NEW REPORT FINDINGS ON DIET, ADVISES IRISH EXPERT

first_imgDD HEATLH: A report published earlier this week by the UK’s National Obesity Forum and the newly-formed ‘Public Health Collaboration’ suggests people should eat more fat, cut out carbohydrates and ignore calories.These recommendations conflict with current health and nutrition recommendations from around the world and have attracted considerable criticism from experts in the field of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.In response to this report, Claire Kerins, lead Specialist Cardiac Dietician with Croí and the National Institute for Preventive Cardiology, encourages the public to be cautious when interpreting these recommendations. Ms Kerins explains “This report is mostly based on ideas and opinions, and not based on good science or research. The recommendations from this report are simply irresponsible and misleading for the general public”. She went on to say “If we were to follow the recommendations in this report, such as increasing our saturated fat intake from foods such as cheese and butter, the outcomes would be an increase in cholesterol levels, blood pressure and weight”.According to Croí and the National Institute for Preventive Cardiology, cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in Ireland, with approximately 10,000 people dying each year.It is estimated that by 2020 the incidence of cardiovascular disease in Ireland will rise by 20-30%. It is important to note that up to 90% of cardiovascular disease is attributable to modifiable risk factors such as cholesterol, blood pressure and weight (things we can do something about).When we examine the risk factors that contribute to cardiovascular disease, we can see that diet explains more than 50% of cardiovascular events. Ms Kerins explains: “The report is not robust and is not based on a comprehensive review of the evidence – it is fundamentally based on ideas and opinions. The authors, who are not named, have simply ‘cherry-picked’ research findings to support their claims and this is not good practice or good science”.She also added: “The public need to be encouraged to follow a Mediterranean style diet, which has a solid evidence base, known to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and other chronic diseases”.Mediterranean DietThe key elements of the Mediterranean diet include:More healthy fats such as olive oil or rapeseed oilLess ‘bad fats’ found in red-meat, butter and full fat dairyMore oily fish such as mackerel, salmon, sardine, troutGenerous amounts of fruits and vegetables every dayHerbs and spices to replace saltMore wholegrain foods in the dietSmall portions of nuts and seedsAlcohol in moderationAll the elements of the Mediterranean diet act synergistically to protect the body from cardiovascular disease. Speaking about the Mediterranean Diet, Ms Kerins, reports “There is a strong body of evidence demonstrating that a Mediterranean style diet is associated with a lower rate of cardiovascular disease.The health benefits associated with the Mediterranean diet are due to the synergistic effects among foods and nutrients in the Mediterranean diet, rather than an effect of only one nutrient, food or food group.The diet is effective in reducing cardiovascular risk by having a positive effect on different cardiovascular risk factors such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels, glucose levels, and inflammatory markers”.Recommendations Based on the current body of evidence, it would be potentially dangerous to think you can eat as much saturated fat as you want without it having an effect on your cardiovascular health, in particular your cholesterol, blood pressure and weight, states Croí.With so much attention being placed on the role of fats in our diet it is crucial to highlight that dietary advice on preventing and managing cardiovascular disease does not begin and end with fats.Croí states that we also need to be mindful of our diet as a whole and the balance of foods within it.Cardiac Specialist Dieticians with Croí and the National Institute for Preventive Cardiology continue to encourage a nutritionally balanced and varied Mediterranean-style diet for optimum cardiovascular health.For further information on diet and lifestyle advice, please visit www.croi.ie or call 091-544310.DD HEALTH: BE CAUTIOUS ABOUT NEW REPORT FINDINGS ON DIET, ADVISES IRISH EXPERT was last modified: May 27th, 2016 by John2Share 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)Tags:caloriescarbohydratesdonegal daily healthFathealth reportWarninglast_img read more

Bush visits border hot spot, urges Senate to act on bill

first_imgSAN LUIS, Ariz. – President Bush peered across this hot, dusty and very busy illegal crossing point on Thursday, hoping to offer conservatives balking at a broad immigration bill firsthand evidence that he’s serious about tightening the nation’s 2,000-mile border with Mexico. He said fences would help stop people from sneaking into the United States. The president showed off a section of the border that is seeing a rising tide of illegal immigrants and other smuggling. The United States is responding with increased manpower – including help from the National Guard – and a newly beefed-up enforcement zone that features two layers of tall fencing, a concrete culvert, floodlights, watch towers and camera surveillance. “I think it helps to have the president out here, seeing the part of the area of the country that one time was overrun by people coming in here, that’s beginning to get settled down because of a strategy that’s being employed,” Bush said later in a packed room at the Border Patrol’s Yuma Sector headquarters about 30 miles away. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinals“People’s work is making a difference,” the president said. “But we do not have full control of the border.” Bush wants a sweeping immigration overhaul that combines enhanced border security measures with a guest-worker program. But he faces stiff resistance from conservative Republicans, particularly in the House, who prefer a get-tough approach and largely oppose a Bush-backed guest-worker program, which they see as providing amnesty for criminal behavior. House legislation that passed last year would make all illegal immigrants subject to prosecution as felons. While the president visited the U.S.-Mexico border, the Senate continued a heated debate over broad legislation that largely does what Bush wants. It includes measures to tighten control over the borders, create a guest-worker program and offer a path to citizenship for many of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants already in the country. The Senate voted to make English the national language of the United States. Moments later, it voted to say that English was a “common and unifying language.” “The Senate needs to get the bill out,” Bush said. Eager to win over conservative opponents, the president has been talking increasingly tough. On Monday, he proposed deploying up to 6,000 National Guard troops along the international line to support Border Patrol agents until their ranks can be expanded. On Thursday, he said it makes sense to put up fencing along some parts of the border. Bush did not declare his support for either of Congress’ two competing proposals – one approved by the House that would build 700 miles of fencing and a provision in the Senate bill that would build half that. Instead, he said the decision should be up to the Border Patrol. “It makes sense to use fencing along the border in key locations in order to do our job,” he said, The president has talked repeatedly about the wisdom of walling the border in urban areas but has also signaled opposition to widespread fencing – which is hotly opposed by his ally, Mexican President Vicente Fox. Bush told Fox News, in one of five television interviews he granted while visiting the border to further press his message: “Whatever works.” Bush also defended those who oppose his immigration proposal against criticism that there is an element of racism to their stance. “I think it would be too harsh a judgment to say that somebody who doesn’t support a comprehensive immigration plan is a racist,” the president told CNN. “I don’t believe that. I do believe citizens have got legitimate concerns, realizing that parts of this border have been open for anybody who wants to come across.” Bush’s motorcade took him to a section of 6.9 miles of fencing that guard this area, the nation’s busiest immigrant-smuggling hot spot. The president climbed up to a berm overlooking the 150-foot-wide border enforcement zone, which has recently added a new secondary fence of chain links and razor wire to a 20-foot-tall wall of corrugated metal. Guided by Border Patrol officials and Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, the president also reviewed a line of Border Patrol vehicles and display booths. He also had a close encounter with the Washington debate, as he was joined on Air Force One by Arizona Republican lawmakers who have taken sharply different positions in the debate. Rep. J.D. Hayworth advocates doing anything possible to close the nation’s porous border, while Republican Reps. Jeff Flake and Jim Kolbe teamed up to sponsor guest worker legislation similar to Bush’s proposal. The president suggested he got an earful from his guests, telling his audience in Yuma that the group is “a good bunch – a little rambunctious at times.” Meanwhile, Lt. Gen. Clyde A. Vaughn, chief of the Army National Guard, said Guard members from hurricane states will not be expected to contribute troops to the border effort until the end of the storm season.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

IS TRANSITION YEAR WORTHWHILE? OUR TY STUDENT RESPONDS

first_imgIs Transition Year worthwhile? Kate Haley from Loreto Community School in Milford has spent a few weeks working for donegaldaily.com. Here she answers the burning question and asks her classmates what they think……Transition Year, what’s it all about? Do students actually get anything out of a year spent away from stress of exams or does it just make them lazy? A year for development or just a year of dossing… Donegal Daily gets Transition Year students from Loreto Milford’s side of the story. TY student Kate gives her view on the matter. ‘I can only tell you about my experience of TY, it’s not the same for everyone but I think Transition Year is more than just worthwhile. The things I’ve got to experience have been amazing. All the competitions we’ve got to do and the trips we’ve got to go on were class craic. I’ve have made friends from all corners of Ireland. Work experience has been a real eye opener too and it’s really good to know what different jobs are like out in the real world. Of course it goes without saying that working for donegaldaily.com was incredible. I would 100% recommend it to any student considering doing it and it’s defiantly not a doss year!’Meadhbh has her say ‘I think honestly Transition Year is as good as you make it! If you do nothing the whole year it’s going to be boring apart from the trips but if you enter all the competitions that are open to you it will make the year a whole lot more interesting and worth while. TY isn’t for everybody so I guess you just have to make the decision for yourself.’Eilis tells us of her experience ‘I think TY is totally worth it, I think the people who get involved in all the competitions and all the extra curricular activities get the most out of it. It is definitely not a doss year if you take part in all the activities. I loved TY!’Ciara says ‘It’s a good year and I would recommend that any self-motivated student should do it because it gives you the chance to mature and experience new things before going into the senior cycle. Personally for me it was a brilliant experience as I felt I needed a break from all the studying and books but believe me TY is no doss year! I got involved in as many activities as I could and I feel this has really helped me improve my confidence and independent learning skills. TY gives you a taste of the working world outside of school and statistically people who’ve done TY do better in there Leaving Cert then those who go on from Junior Cert. TY was totally worth it and I would undoubtedly do it again if I could.’ Heather thinks, ‘If you keep busy in TY, then it is really fun and worthwhile but if you don’t get involved in the activities then it can be really boring. I think if you don’t think you’d be bothered working in TY and you’re just taking it to doss then don’t do TY. You’re just wasting another year of your life in school! So if you’re going to do TY and you want to make it worthwhile then get stuck into everything going. You’ll have a class time and learn loads rather than dossing and being bored for the rest of term.’Kieran advises, ‘TY has its ups and downs and it’s not for everyone! It can be class craic and other times it can seem really pointless. I loved TY because we did so many things and we were involved in loads of competitions so we got to meet a lot of different people. I think if you’re considering doing TY then just go for it! It’s really made me a lot more confident then I used to be and on the whole it was an amazing experience.’There we have it. It would seem that Transition Year is what you make of it. So make it an amazing year by doing amazing things and giving everything a go. And who ever said it was a doss, not to these TY’s that’s for sure!   IS TRANSITION YEAR WORTHWHILE?

Uganda to represent Africa at 2016 Quidditch World Cup

first_img18 May 2016Quidditch is no longer a sport only played in the fictional, magical Harry Potter books. Invented in the series of novels by JK Rowling, fans were inspired to play quidditch in real life. Team Uganda will be holding the hopes of Africa on their shoulders at the 2016 Quidditch World Cup, taking place in Germany from 23 to 24 July.The International Quidditch Association (IQA) announced that 24 teams from six continents had preregistered to attend the tournament. Team Uganda is the only team from Africa.A crowdfunding project was started on the Indiegogo Generosity fundraising website to help Team Uganda to get enough money to travel to Germany.“Up to this point, most international quidditch teams have been from western countries – Europe and North America. With this campaign, we have a real chance to broaden the spectrum of teams attending the event,” says the Indiegogo campaign.Originally Team Uganda set out to raise €1 500 (about R26 000), reported British newspaper The Guardian, but the team need nearly €15 000 to get to Germany. They are just over half-way there, and have raised €8 256 so far.#Quidditch World Cup 2016 hopes to feature first African team | @guardian on Team Uganda: https://t.co/UkNBw3Wwwc pic.twitter.com/sDts3xgZXT— Quidditch Canada (@QuidditchCanada) May 4, 2016“Team Uganda still need so much more support,” tournament director Matthew Guenzel told The Guardian. “The flights alone number in the tens of thousands. But we are hopeful. The quidditch community is very supportive, and this is a great cause.”The team showed their appreciation on their Facebook page. “There is a moment when the support you get outweighs what you expected,” they wrote. “Thank you all for loving and supporting Team Uganda. It’s overwhelming and amazing! We are convinced that people in the quidditch community love us greatly.”Watch the team captain, Safina Nakawooya thank supporters:How the game is playedAs in the Potter books, quidditch is played with two teams of seven players each, made up of a keeper, two beaters, three chasers and a seeker.In reality, chasers tried to throw a quaffle – a semi-deflated volley ball – through raised hoops, beaters threw bludgers – dodge balls – at the opposing team, and seekers tried to reach for the snitch – a sock with a tennis ball in it – usually attached to the snitch runner’s shorts, reported The Guardian. And because brooms don’t fly in the real world, players hold a broom between their legs.The team that scores the most points, either by throwing the quaffle through the hoops or gaining the snitch, wins the game.Watch this for more information:OriginsIt was a sunny Sunday afternoon in 2005 when Xander Manshel and Alex Benepe, both students at Middlebury College in Vermont, in the US, began playing quidditch in real life, according to the IQA. By 2007, the sport had grown to have the first intercollegiate match. In 2008, the first 12-team World Cup was played, featuring teams from universities.The game gained global traction and by 2012, “the IQA hosted national teams from the US, Canada, the UK, France, and Australia in Oxford, England for the inaugural Global Games, a bi-annual tournament showcasing the talents of the best players from around the world, which occurred alongside a torch ceremony for the London Olympics”, reads the IQA website.The governing body now serves approximately 20 quidditch-playing organisations and nations spanning six continents.The World CupThe World Cup will be held at the Rebstocklage sports facility in Frankfurt.“We are excited about this opportunity to welcome the world to the heart of German quidditch, and look forward to working together with the IQA to ensure a memorable tournament experience for both players and spectators,” said Lisa Struck, chair of the Frankfurt 2016 Organising Committee.IQA executive director Harrison Homel said Frankfurt was a major travel hub so it was the ideal gateway for players and fans alike. “We are all extremely glad to be working with such passionate hosts, and to use this opportunity to bring our sport to new eyes in central Europe.”Source: The Guardianlast_img read more
