Melanie May | 20 June 2017 | News  106 total views,  1 views today Tagged with: animals fundraising events Fundraising ideas The 2017 annual Bring Your Dog To Work Day takes place this Friday 23 June, and is fundraising for two charities: All Dogs Matter, and Animals Asia.Founded and organised by natural pet product manufacturer HOWND, Bring Your Dog To Work Day sees businesses across the UK let their employees bring their dogs to work with them. The event’s aims are to promote the benefits of bringing dogs into safe work environments as well as to raise money for charity.Anyone can take part and share their experience on social media with the hashtag #BringYourDogToWorkDay. People who donate £2 or more will also be able to upload an image of their dog to be published in the Bring Your Dog To Work Day ‘Dog with a Job’ Hall of Fame along with their dog’s work duties for the day. Businesses can also get involved by becoming official sponsors. In return for a minimum donation of £50, their company logo and a link to their website will be displayed on the Bring Your Dog to Work Day’s homepage.Money raised will be split equally between Animals Asia and All Dogs Matter.A ‘no dogs allowed’ work policy coupled with the benefits of dogs in the workplace at led to the creation of Bring Your Dog To Work Day by Mark Hirschel and Jo Amit, the co-founders of HOWND.Amit said:“We have always brought our dogs Roxy and Laila to work with us, but when we moved into new offices back in 2014 we discovered that they weren’t allowed in the premises. This inspired us to create an event that publicised why dogs can make a positive difference in safe work environments, in attempt to encourage companies across the UK to adopt dog friendly policies.”“We’re overwhelmed with how successful Bring Your Dog To Work Day has become. It’s been amazing to see how many people have posted their dogs at work across all social media in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Most importantly, it’s fantastic to raise money for All Dogs Matter and Animals Asia. We’re hopeful that this year will prove even more popular, building on the momentum of 2016.”last_img read more

Celebrating Dr. King the fighter in Newark, N.J.

first_imgDr. Willa Cofield speaks to the Newark MLK Day rally on Jan. 15.By Johnnie Stevens and Steve MilliesOver 100 people demonstrated in Newark, N.J., on Jan. 15 to celebrate the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday. Organized by the People’s Organization for Progress, the rally and march was a defiant mobilization against super bigot Donald Trump.A multinational crowd gathered in front of the Dr. King statue in Newark. Chaired by POP chairperson Lawrence Hamm, the rally heard young and old fighters.Dr. Willa Johnson Cofield described how the Ku Klux Klan burned a 17-foot-tall cross near her North Carolina home because she fought for voting rights. Although she was fired by a racist school administration, Cofield won her job back. Her legal case may have saved the jobs of 40,000 Black teachers throughout the South who were targeted by Jim Crow authorities.Former New Jersey assemblyperson William D. Payne spoke of his meetings with Dr. King. Proudly wearing a badge from the 1957 Prayer Pilgrimage, a civil rights march in Washington, D.C., Payne talked about his fight to bring Black history to all New Jersey students via the “Amistad Bill.”Speakers also included a representative from New Jersey BAYAN, a Filipino organization.Lawrence Hamm reminded people of the Garden State’s racist history. New Jersey was the last Northern state to outlaw slavery, but there were still people held as slaves in 1865. State legislators initially refused to pass the 13th Amendment against slavery.Hamm recalled the local theaters, where African Americans could only sit in the balcony. He pointed to the old Bamberger Department Store, where Black customers weren’t allowed to try on clothes.Pointing towards the old First Presbyterian Church, whose basement served as a “station” on the Underground Railroad, Hamm said that runaway slaves were advised that New Jersey wasn’t a safe haven.People marched down Market Street to Broad Street and then marched back, carrying many signs attacking police brutality and demanding jobs and health care for all. Firefighters in a fire truck honked their horn in support, as did many other drivers.Despite a few new buildings, Newark continues to be one of the poorest cities in the U.S. The racist ruling class has never forgotten the heroic Newark rebellion in 1967.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Athletics programs increase geographical diversity on campus

She currently serves as the academics editor. Twitter Student publishes children’s book, “The Howard Gardner Zoo” Linkedin The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Caroline Klapphttps://www.tcu360.com/author/caroline-klapp/center_img Stanford professor speaks as Green Honors Chair TCU students teach dance through TCU Tadpoles Facebook Caroline Klapp printThe success of the athletics department is bringing national recognition to TCU, Dean of Admissions Raymond Brown said.This is the fourth year in a row that more than half of the first-year class is from out of state. The first-year class has 2,072 students, and 959, or about 45.9 percent, are from Texas.The only reason Texas is still the majority state represented in the overall student body is fifth-year seniors and transfer students, 75 percent of whom are from Texas, said Cathan Coghlan, director of the TCU Office of Institutional Research.Brown said the university has increased in popularity across the country.“It’s largely because the rest of the country has discovered us,” Brown said.California and Illinois are the top two states represented other than Texas.However, TCU has students from all over world.There are 25 students from Vietnam in the first-year class and 90 in the overall undergraduate population, according to the Office of Institutional Research.Brown said the growing success of the football team has led to a lot of exposure.“We were one of those best kept secrets for years and years and years, and then in 2011, we won the Rose Bowl,” Brown said. “That sort of opened the floodgates for a lot of the rest of the country to take a look at us.”Two recent events had a major effect on the university’s appeal, said Clarence Scharbauer, chairman of the Board of Trustees.“The day they called us and asked us to join the Big 12 gave us another platform of incredible,” Scharbauer said. “And the other day we announced we are joining with North Texas for a medical school.”The recent success of the athletics program is gaining attention from the nation and attracting prospective students from across the globe.“We were on the national stage [in 2011],” Brown said. “The announcers for the game were talking about, ‘Hey, if you haven’t seen this little college in Texas, you need to,’ and the popularity just boomed.”After the Frogs won the Rose Bowl, yield within admission increased.Yield is the ratio of the number of students who accept the offer of admission based on the number of admission letters offered.“The fall of 2011 after the Rose Bowl was the highest increase in yield we had in 30-something years and this year, it’s almost tripled,” Brown said. “We issued 350 fewer offers of admission this year.”Scharbauer said 10 years ago, TCU was a small liberal arts school without a law school or a medical school, and now national recognition has increased dramatically.“All of a sudden, we start going out to California and playing football, our baseball team was in the College World Series three out of the last five years, and all of a sudden, it’s our front door,” Scharbauer said. “I’m not putting this all on athletics, but I’m just telling you it’s our front door.”Brown said that while football brings attention to TCU, the university offers much more to the students.“Gary Patterson is very fond of saying that the football program and athletics generally are merely the front porch of the university,” Brown said. “And he’s right. It’s really nothing more than that.”Brown said sports may bring students to tour the campus, but it’s not what makes them commit.“If [prospective students] didn’t like the experience here, and they hadn’t applied, they’re not going to,” Brown said.Scharbauer said the TCU study abroad program is also attracting students from across the country.“We are seeing a more diverse group of students,” Scharbauer said. “People are hearing about us, and we are getting a little more active out there with all the TCU abroad that we are doing. Kids are going to Scotland or Spain or Italy, and they’re coming home, and they’re talking about it.”Scharbauer said the Board of Trustees is observing the growing geographic diversity of the student population.“Now all of a sudden as a board, we are looking at the national exposure we are getting, we’re looking at our students, and now we are appealing to a lot more people,” Scharbauer said.Scharbauer said the board is excited about the diversity and is ready to react to it.“Now our board is starting to go, ‘Whoa, wait a minute, we like this diversity. Let’s see what we got out there, let’s see who might be interested,’” Scharbauer said.Brown said students decide to attend TCU for a variety of reasons.“You’ve got arguably the most beautiful school in the country populated by some of the most amazing people on this planet, in the form of our students,” Brown said.

Senior wide receiver Josh Doctson, a Maxwell Award semifinalist, left the game with an arm injury near the end of the second quarter, OSU has locked down Trevone Boykin’s other options, and Cowboy quarterback Mason Rudolph has thrown for four touchdowns on just 13 attempts.Rudolph has had time in the pocket to make the throws he wants, and he connected with wide receiver James Washington on two long touchdown passes in the first quarter that looked to be identical plays.Boykin, meanwhile, has been severely limited. The Heisman candidate has 241 yards passing, but has found trouble in the red zone, and has yet to throw for a score.Boykin also threw an interception on a route into the flat on TCU’s second drive of the game.The Horned Frog ground game has been next to nonexistent, with the exception of a few dazzling Boykin runs, one of which provided the team’s lone touchdown. TCU has only 83 yards rushing on 22 attempts.The Cowboy defense has held strong on big downs. TCU is 3-10 on third down conversions and 1-2 on fourth downs.OSU has only faced 5 third downs in the game. The Cowboys have scored in five plays or less on every touchdown drive they’ve had.Doctson’s injury occurred near the two-minute mark of the second quarter. The receiver hauled in a short completion before landing awkwardly on his left arm, and stayed down on the field before being walked back to the sideline with the training staff.Penalties have also been a problem for both teams. Each team has had 5 calls against them, most of which came in the first quarter.The Horned Frogs elected to receive the opening kickoff, but went three-and-out on three consecutive Boykin incompletions.The Cowboys punted on their opening drive as well, but Rudolph found Washington on their first touchdown pass on the drive following Boykin’s interception.TCU scored with 6:28 left in the first quarter after an impressive drive, but Jaden Oberkrom’s extra point was blocked.The Cowboys scored a touchdown on their next drive on the second Washington touchdown catch, and TCU answered with an Oberkrom field goal to make the score 14-9 with 3:24 remaining in the quarter.That field goal put the senior kicker into a tie with Colorado’s Mason Crosby for the most career made field goals in Big XII history, at 70.Those would be TCU’s last points of the half.Rudolph threw for touchdowns on OSU’s next two drives, and the Cowboy defense stifled the normally explosive Horned Frog offense.TCU was able to hold OSU to a punt on the next drive, and began to march down the field before Doctson’s injury killed the drive’s momentum.Oberkrom missed a 49-yard field goal attempt with :49 left on the clock, and OSU let time expire to go into the locker room with a lead.

Women’s soccer kicks off the fall sports season on the road versus Baylor

first_imgSam Fristachihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sam-fristachi/ ReddIt Women’s Basketball falls to Kansas State in overtime loss Twitter printThe TCU women’s soccer team will kick off its 2020 season on the road against Baylor on Friday, marking the first TCU Athletics event since March.“I’m excited about the season, and I think our players are as well,” said head coach Eric Bell. “The opportunity to compete for a conference championship is huge.”In the Big 12 preseason poll, the Horned Frogs rank third out of 10 teams.Junior Messiah Bright, who led the team in goals last season with 12 and senior Yazmeen Ryan, who led the team with nine assists, are two players to watch. “Yazmeen Ryan [is] who I think is probably, if not the best, one of the best players in our league,” Bell said. “She’s a special kid, and she’s turned out to be a leader within our group.”Bell added that Bright can “change the game with her pace and athleticism, as well as her goal-scoring abilities.”Both Bright and Ryan earned Big 12 Honors this preseason.Goalie Emily Alvarado will also be returning this season. Alvarado started in all 22 games last season and had seven shutouts. She also had a 1.17 goals against average and a 0.780 save percentage.“Emily is one of the best goal keepers in the country, and we are very fortunate to have her,” Bell said. “She’s done a really good job this preseason, and I expect her to have a really good season.”Tara Smith and Tayla Christensen both graduated, and six new first-years will join the team this year. “We have an older group, and we are starting primarily returning players,” Bell said. “That’s good from a familiarity and experience standpoint, and that should excite the team that we have a lot of experience that will be on the field come Friday.”Last season, the Horned Frogs were 11-8-3 overall and 4-3-2 in conference play. The team had big wins over No. 25 SMU and No. 13 Texas Tech in the regular season. In the postseason, TCU went to the Big 12 Soccer Tournament finals to fall to the Kansas Jayhawks 1-0.The team made it to the NCAA Soccer Tournament but lost in the first round to the University of Arizona Wildcats.This season, TCU will play each Big 12 team once, with four games at home and five games on the road.  The Horned Frogs will have their first home game Sept. 18 against Texas. Iowa State, Texas Tech and West Virginia will all travel to Fort Worth to take on the Frogs.TCU will travel to Baylor, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Kansas and Oklahoma for its away games this season.Although there will be no Big 12 Championship, the Horned Frogs are hoping to finish at the top of the Big 12. “I like our team, I think we have a shot at it, a really strong shot at winning it,” Bell said. “Hopefully we can stay healthy both from an injury standpoint and a COVID standpoint and give ourselves the best opportunity to be successful.”TCU is 4-13-4 all-time against the Bears. The 22nd match up between the two teams will begin at 7 p.m. on Sept. 11. The team will kick off its season against the Baylor Bears on Sept. 11.

Credit: Courtesy of Michael WongTwo current Caltech students and a 2016 graduate recently received Academic All-America Program honors, which recognize scholar-athletes who excel both in the classroom and on the playing field.Senior Nasser Al-Rayes (basketball) became a first-time honoree this year, while senior Christopher Bradley (water polo) and 2016 graduate Aditya Bhagavathi (cross country, track and field) received honors for the second consecutive year. Such recognition has previously been rare for Caltech: only one other student on campus—track-and-field alumnus Jeremy Leibs (BS, ’06)—has received an All-America distinction since it was first awarded in the 1950s.Al-Rayes helped lead the men’s basketball team to a program-record seven Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) wins during the 2015–16 season, breaking the previous record of six wins held by the 1953–54 conference title-winning team. Playing forward, Al-Rayes re-set his own single-season and single-game records for blocks while leading the team in scoring, rebounding, and free-throw shooting.Al-Rayes says he is gratified by the recognition, noting that “completing assignments on par with other Caltech students while performing athletically on par with other college athletes is not easy.” Still, he adds, he is especially pleased to be able to show that “athletic success and academic success aren’t mutually exclusive.”Bradley, recognized in part for his achievements on the men’s water polo team, followed up his 2014 program-record 134-goal campaign with a junior season in which he scored another 89 goals. “I enjoy the challenge that being a student-athlete at Caltech provides,” he says. “Although it has been a struggle at times, it has been completely worth it.”Bhagavathi capped his career with a second-place finish in the SCIAC Cross Country Multi-Dual Championships and fourth place in the SCIAC Championships. Bhagavathi, who was also the program’s first two-time qualifier for the NCAA Championships, led the Beavers to their first-ever regional ranking. He was a SCIAC champion in the track and field 5,000-meter run.Bhagavathi, now a business consultant, reflected on his time at Caltech as being especially formative, adding that athletics and academic competition “helped shape me as an individual. I carry with me the drive and determination that I cultivated through my athletic participation.”The Academic All-America honor, bestowed by the College Sports Information Directors of America, recognizes selected elite college athletes who also maintain a GPA of 3.3 or higher.More on this story and an interview with the student-athletes can be found on the Caltech Athletics website.last_img read more
