Flaherty Food Fights promotes giving, community

first_imgThirty-one dorms. Two dining halls. One secret ingredient.Flaherty Food Fights, the dorm’s “Chopped”-style cooking competition and signature event, began Thursday night at North and South Dining Halls. Junior Theresa Rogers, who founded the event last year, said she was inspired by the dorm’s roots in Pangborn Hall.“I have a family friend who lived in Pangborn, and she was telling me about how she and her friends would go to the dining hall and each choose a little ingredient, and they’d all have to make their dinner based off of that ingredient,” Rogers said. “All the girls from Flaherty were originally from Pangborn, so it’s cool to have that little tie back.”In the food fights, cooking teams of two to four use ingredients in the dining hall, plus one special ingredient, to make a delicious meal. Sophomore Nichola Keane-Murphy competed on last year’s runner-up team from Lyons Hall and said she enjoyed the camaraderie of the event.“It was fun to collaborate with some other people from my dorm who I don’t really get to hang out with much,” she said. “It was really cool how the dining hall staff would help us with anything we needed, like finding equipment. They would run to the back to grab us extra pans, extra spatulas and stuff. It was really cool to interact with the head chef of the dining hall.”Rogers said the dining hall staff were excited and engaged with the idea right away.“Last year, for the final round of the competition, the chefs all went to the Asian markets the morning before to find some really random ingredients. When I showed up in the basket, I was like, ‘What is this?’ They said, ‘I don’t know. Have at it,’” she said.Teams can earn more time for cooking by raising more money for the dorm’s signature charity, Beacon Children’s Hospital. Keane-Murphy said Lyons really came together in order to help Beacon and their dorm-mates.“We reached out to our dorm’s GroupMe and said, ‘Hey, here’s this link, donate to it so that we can get extra time.’ We got enough [money] to get the maximum amount of time, and it was really helpful to be able to make something a little bit more … exciting,” Keane-Murphy said.Flaherty donates to Beacon year-round with events like DVD drives and occasional service trips. Rogers said her dorm is proud of the work the hospital does.“It’s really been a force for good in the lives of these children, because it’s the only comprehensive children’s hospital in our area, so people come from all over Michigan and Indiana to go there,” she said.Rogers said Flaherty has made a few changes to the event this year in the hopes of drawing more participants. They cut the event down to two nights rather than three and added a prize raffle for anyone who donates to their page. Last year, the dorm raised $1,700 through the event, and Rogers hopes to exceed that goal this year.“It’s been really interesting to try to make things really streamlined and easy for people who want to participate,” Rogers said. “Getting people to hear about it is the most important aspect, I think.”Tags: dining hall, dorm events, Flaherty Food Fightslast_img read more

The Chilean Armed Forces Support Science in Antarctica

first_imgBy Carolina Contreras/Diálogo February 15, 2017 The white continent is the backdrop for 57 scientific projects on atmospheric sciences, glaciology, microbiology, biotechnology, and evolutionary biology. The studies fall within the framework of the 53rd Antarctic Scientific Expedition (ECA, per its Spanish acronym) of the Chilean Antarctic Institute (INACh, per its Spanish acronym). The Chilean Armed Forces will provide logistical support and assets for the studies, which will run through April 2017. “This is a tremendous opportunity in which scientists from diverse institutions will carry out various kinds of studies, which we hope will open up our sphere of research even more,” noted Marcelo Leppe, head of the scientific department of INACh, during the farewell ceremony for a group of scientists held December 7th at the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “We have a leadership role in this area,” said Foreign Affairs Minister Heraldo Muñoz during the official ceremony. The 53rd ECA will cover 3,000 kilometers, from the city of Punta Arenas on the southern tip of Chile to Union Glacier, almost 1,000 kilometers from the South Pole. The studies will be conducted at six INACh bases and three bases operated by the Armed Forces. They will involve three Navy ships; airplanes and helicopters, for aerial transport; the Karpuj scientific vessel, which belongs to INACh, and support from various coastal/offshore vessels. This year the expedition will also have logistical support or international scientific cooperation from 19 countries, including Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Ecuador, the United States, and Mexico. A few steps away from the South Pole During the first phase of the 53rd ECA, the Fourth Union Glacier Scientific Expedition lasted 20 days. The Army supplied the resources and the knowledge to carry out the studies in the field. The Chilean Air Force (FACh, per its Spanish acronym) was responsible for transporting personnel and more than 30 metric tons of cargo to the glacier. The Navy provided base support, maintenance, logistical issues, and basic necessities. “The support of the Chilean Armed Forces was fundamental in this operation,” said Félix Bartsch, head of the ECA. After six hours of flight on board two of the FACh Hercules C-130 aircraft, the contingent of 21 scientists and service members arrived at the Union Glacier camp on November 23rd. After setting up and servicing the camp, members of the military assisted scientists in their research, especially with work that involved traveling several miles from base camp to obtain samples, test the ice, and install sensors for seven climate modeling and glaciology projects in the area. Given the difficult conditions they will face during their stay, with temperatures reaching 15 degrees below zero Celsius, strong gusts of wind, and frequent cracks in the icy ground, the contingent underwent military acclimation training two weeks prior to the start of the expedition. Despite the adversities, “it was a good campaign,” Captain Manuel Silva, Joint Staff Antarctic affairs delegate, told Diálogo. “Developing cutting-edge science in Antarctica doesn’t just interest Chile, but also the rest of the world.” Antarctic science Scientists on the white continent are searching for answers as diverse as, what are the effects of vitamin D on the inhabitants of Antarctica? Is it possible that bacteria on Antarctic vegetation could allow products like avocados to adapt to low temperatures? How are penguins adapting to climate change in Antarctica? From January 20th through mid-February, the Chilean Navy’s AP 41 “Aquiles” vessel participated in the second stage of the ECA, which allowed professionals from Chile and other countries to perform these and other studies. In total, there were six projects and 24 research groups deployed by the vessel to the South Shetland Islands as well as the O’Higgins and Yelcho bases. “Without the Navy, we would not be able to achieve any of the objectives we have, or very few,” Pamela Santibáñez, the scientific coordinator for the 53rd ECA told Diálogo. “They facilitate our arrival in places that we wouldn’t have access to any other way.” At the same time, the vessel allowed the maintenance brigade to perform repairs and upgrades of Chilean lighthouses in the Antarctic. In its quest to encourage Antarctic science among new generations, ECA also developed the XIII Antarctic School Expedition, comprising a group of students and teachers from different regions in Chile, as well as students from the United States who were awarded a grant to participate in the Joint Antarctic School Expedition, sponsored by the National Science Foundation. “This will be the largest and most complex Antarctic Scientific Expedition that we have organized on the white continent,” Bartsch reiterated.last_img read more

Agent: Why Osimhen will not play for Liverpool or Man Utd

first_img “I’m always honoured whenever I hear these links, but for now there’s no deal in place, even if negotiations with them are ongoing. “He wants to play regularly, we’re not going to repeat certain bad experiences from the past. “The Napoli fans are fantastic, their stadium is beautiful. I can only speak well of Naples and its team.” Okolo continued, adding that Naples may in fact be the “right destination” for his client. “The real problem with Italy is racism,” the agent said. “I know it happens all over Europe, but in Italy it happens a bit more often compared to elsewhere. read also:Osimhen ranked Nigeria’s most expensive player at €64m “I know Napoli fans aren’t racist, I have the video of them wearing masks for Koulibaly. “Although Napoli fans aren’t racist, many others are. Naples may be the right destination for Victor, but he still must make a decision.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Osimhen signed for Lille last summer as a direct replacement for Arsenal-bound Nicolas Pepe, whose boots he has filled impressively. The Nigerian provided 18 goals and six assists in 38 appearances before the curtailment of Lille’s season in April. As such, the 21-year-old has been heavily linked in recent months with the Premier League, with Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United all reportedly keen. What’s more, reports have said Napoli are keen but Osimhen himself shut down such talk. Speaking to Radio Marte (via Goal), the player’s brother-in-law and agent, Osita Okolo, also rubbished links between his client and the English top flight. “I can say that, for now, Osimhen hasn’t agreed anything with Napoli or another club,” Okolo said. “I can also deny that he dreams of going to the Premier League, I don’t know why [the press] says certain things. Naples is a fantastic city and Napoli are a very good team.center_img Agent of Liverpool-linked Lille striker, Victor Osimhen, has revealed why his client will not move to the Premier League.last_img read more

Messi has to play until he’s 70 so we can enjoy him! – Eto’o

first_img Quique Setien is the coach currently calling the shots at Camp Nou, but a return to his roots has been mooted for Pep Guardiola. The Catalan tactician remains at Manchester City for now, but they have the threat of a two-year European ban hanging over them. It may be that Guardiola is tempted to head back to Barca at some point, with Eto’o a big fan of the 49-year-old’s methods but not his personality. The ex-Cameroon international said of his former boss: “I stick to what I said, and I’m not the only person who has said it. My experience with Pep at Barcelona was what it was, but on a personal level it wasn’t what we hoped for. “Many players have said the same about him. As a coach, Pep prepares games like nobody else. How he coached us in 2009 was incredible, his way of seeing attacking football, control, having the ball, rondos, Pep was the best at that. read also:Messi, Suarez pressuring Barcelona chiefs to seal Neymar’s transfer “As a player, you had the feeling that you didn’t run much, although you did, because you were enjoying it. They are specific techniques for those of us who love good football. “For me, football is feeling like you’re in a theatre, and seeing tiki-taka, passing the ball, it’s not the only way to win but it’s special. It’s Pep’s way.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Samuel Eto’o is looking for Lionel Messi to “play until he’s 70”, with a former Camp Nou team-mate of the mercurial Argentine eager to see Barcelona build “the best team in the world”.

An exit clause has expired in the current campaign, but questions are being asked of how long the 32-year-old forward will stick around in his current surroundings. Eto’o hopes an all-time great still has many more chapters to write in a remarkable story at Barca, with the former Blaugrana frontman eager to see more top talent drafted in alongside Messi. He told Marca: “Leo is the best player in the world and the best of all time. I’d always pick the team asking Messi who he wanted next to him, in his team. “Every team in the world wants Messi. Then, you have to give him support.

Ivy Tech offers new IT pathways: Batesville and Lawrenceburg announce grant-funded programs

first_imgBatesville, IN—Thirty students will be chosen this fall to join two new cohort pathways for information technology (IT) at Ivy Tech’s Batesville and Lawrenceburg locations.Those selected for the cohort will receive a scholarship which will cover all tuition, course, and tech fees associated with both two-year certificate pathways.Lawrenceburg’s pathway is a 32 credit hour program focused on software development, including web design and app development. Students will earn an Ivy Tech technical certificate in software development and the national Microsoft Technology Associate certificate.Batesville’s pathway is a 23 credit hour program focused on both hardware and software support. Students will earn a certificate in IT Helpdesk and the national CompTIA A+ certification.These certifications will provide more qualified employees with a pathway for higher wages in the local workforce.“They really are walking away with some pieces of paper in hand, some resume building certificates and certifications, to help them be employable,” said Rebecca Rahschulte, Director of Ivy Tech Batesville and High School Strategies.Scholarship funding is provided by a grant in partnership with the EcO Network, a group that works with businesses and schools in southeast Indiana to help residents connect to better economic opportunities through education.In 2018, Ivy Tech staff, local businesses, and K-12 schools recognized the growing importance for IT professionals in the local workforce, so they decided to apply for the grant. Ron Eads, a Workforce Consultant for Ivy Tech, said local businesses made the difference in securing funding by writing letters of support.“We probably would not have received this grant without the help of the area businesses who came on board with us in the beginning and stated that they would be willing and interested to help us in supporting the students securing work-and-learn experience,” Eads said.The partnership reinforces the importance of IT in the southeast Indiana workforce and its connection to nearly every sector in our community.“It is really being lifted up, not just within our region but within our state and nationally, as an area that is in need of increased focus, attention, and training just because of the jobs that are going to become available in the field,” Rahschulte said.Those interested in joining either cohort must be high school juniors or seniors or adult learners who pass the requirements based on Accuplacer testing. To apply for the Batesville cohort, email Dr. Rebecca Rahschulte. For the Lawrenceburg campus, email Emily Hartnett.last_img read more
