“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.

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. Agent of Liverpool-linked Lille striker, Victor Osimhen, has revealed why his client will not move to the Premier League.
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.

The one-club man is, however, only tied to a contract through to the summer of 2021 and is yet to commit to fresh terms. 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. He can’t run like a 25-year-old kid anymore, although he does sometimes. “What we have to do as Barcelona fans is give him the best team in the world to keep enjoying him. He has to play until he’s 70 so that we can enjoy him more.”
Batesville, 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.

MATTHEW KUTZ/herald photoAs the Wisconsin Badgers’ volleyball team tips off against Indiana Friday night at the UW Fieldhouse, a number of individual milestones could be reached.Sophomore libero Jocelyn Wack will attempt to extend her double-digit dig streak to 48 consecutive games, and continue to chase Griselle Lopez-Pereira’s (Virginia Commonwealth) streak of 63.Senior co-captain Aubrey Meierotto is just nine kills short of reaching the 1,000-mark for her career. She would become only the 15th player in school history to achieve this feat, joining the likes of Jill Odenthal, Erin Bryd, and Sherisa Livingston in the UW record books.And last but not least, head coach Pete Waite, already the school’s all-time winningest coach, will be going for his 100th conference win as he is currently 99-27 in Big Ten play in his seventh year at Wisconsin.Even with the potential for a handful of new records, don’t expect the Badgers’ mindset to be on anything but their match.The UW volleyball team knows the importance of every Big Ten contest and won’t be overlooking a rather sub-par Indiana team that is currently just 1-5 in conference play.”Coming into any match, you can never take any team for granted,” sophomore setter Jackie Simpson said. “We play in a conference where every night you’re going as hard as you can and we respect any team that comes into our gym or any gym that we go into, we have to really respect every team equally.””[The Big Ten is] very competitive,” Aubrey Meierotto said. “Every night is going to be a really hard game. Every team in the Big Ten is a really good team so it’s going to be a fight.””Every year the Big Ten is really competitive and we’ve just got to come out every match and fight, and I guess take one match at a time,” senior co-captain Sheila Shaw said.So although Friday’s match won’t have the same hype that Minnesota or Penn State brought with them, Indiana will not be taken lightly by any means from the Badgers’ perspective.While Indiana may not be in the upper echelon of Big Ten teams, they still present a legitimate challenge for Wisconsin in a number of ways.Senior right side hitter Rachel Gerling is one of the best servers in the conference. She currently leads the Big Ten in service aces with 40 on the year (0.68 per game).On the defensive side of the net, senior middle blocker Mandy Eberle, a Sussex, Wis., native, leads the conference with 29 blocks in 15 Big Ten games.Also, freshman setter Laura Holms has been a welcome addition to the Hoosier line-up, as she is averaging 11.51 assists per game on the season, comparable to Wisconsin’s very own Jackie Simpson at 12.03 per game.Another main concern for Friday’s match is this week’s schedule. Typically, two games are both played on the weekend, but with a Wednesday game this week, the team may be out of routine and only has one day of preparation following the match against Northwestern.”It always is [difficult with a mid-week game],” Waite said. “Even for the players — some of them are still at classes or have different things going on so some have to be late, but I think they’ve adjusted well to that.”Nevertheless, Waite is confident going into this weekend with his balanced Badger team.”[Our balance] is why we’ve done well over the season,” Waite said. “People can’t key on one or two of our players. I think we’ve got a good number that are very strong offensively and they come from different areas of the court.”Not only does UW have great balance from position to position, with five players averaging over two kills per game, but they also have great versatility, as many of their players can move from one position to another.”That’s something we’re trying to do to expand our game a little bit and become more versatile,” Waite said.
USC Facilities Management Services began an initiative at the start of this year to increase recycling during home football games this season but so far has found fans and tailgaters are not using the system.Big blue bins · Facilities Management Services has placed two recycling bins along West 37th Place on game days to encourage fans to recycle bottles and cans. – Kristy Pyke | Daily TrojanBig blue recycling bins were rolled out to help encourage people to sort out their own trash, said Daniel Benitez, FMS landscape supervisor.“We are trying to get people to think about recycling,” Benitez said. “We weren’t getting too [many] results with the cardboard trash cans. It is a process to get people to notice. People just throw their trash where they are standing.”Linda Chapital, communications manager for FMS, said USC collects on average eight to 10 tons of trash each game but currently has very little success with recycling in particular.“For the amount of people we have here, we aren’t getting that much in the recycle bins,” Chapital said.Chapital also said the lack of recycling is partly because members in the community gather most of the recyclables before the trash can reach recycling bins.Halli Bovia, USC sustainability program manager, said students should take more individual responsibility for their actions.“There needs to be more of an emphasis on personal responsibility for your personal waste rather than relying on community members to pick up trash,” Bovia said.Charlotte Mountain, a junior majoring in psychology, said she attempts to recycle at tailgates, but recycling bins are not always readily available.“I try to recycle, but there aren’t that many recycling bins,” Mountain said. “If there were more recycling bins, I would love to recycle.”Students agreed they needed to take more initiative and said the university needs to make recycling more readily available on campus, especially at tailgates.“The university can make it easier by providing more means for students to recycle, but also, students have to take up the responsibility themselves to recycle,” said Richelle Tanner, a freshman majoring in environmental studies and jazz studies.The Undergraduate Student Government created a new sustainability position to increase student awareness of sustainable practices this year.“There is now going to be a much larger emphasis on sustainability initiatives and projects around campus,” said Rohan Mehra, USG assistant director of sustainability. “We have about eight projects in the works right now and are meeting with USC Hospitality, the Lyon Center, Transportation and other groups on campus to complete them.”There are two recycling bins currently in use on game days, one located on the corner of West 35th Place and Trousdale Parkway and the other on West 35th Place and McCarthy Quad, but FMS plans to increase its game day recycling efforts in the future.“There are just two containers right now but we are looking to try different things,” Benitez said. “[The] Sustainability program has been here for awhile already. Now we are trying to get different trends to go green.”Kristen Rodgers, a sophomore majoring in broadcast and digital journalism, said recycling at tailgates is a simple task and has a positive environmental impact.“It is a waste to simply throw away all of those bottles and cans when you could just as easily recycle and create less of a carbon footprint,” Rodgers said.
After 18 years under the control of Michael L. Jackson, the USC’s Student Affairs division has a new leader: Ainsley Carry.New start · Ainsley Carry sits down with the Daily Trojan’s Annalise Mantz to discuss his new position as vice provost of Student Affairs. The semester is Carry’s first, both as Vice Provost and at USC. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanAt USC, Carry steps into the brand-new role of vice provost for Student Affairs. Though his predecessor, Jackson, held the title of Vice President and reported to President C. L. Max Nikias, Carry will work directly with Provost Elizabeth Garrett.Carry explained that his new title reflects a realignment in the priorities of Student Affairs. He said Garrett spearheaded a reorganization of the department to direct its focus to “a laser degree on student health, student safety and student engagement.”The third of four brothers, Carry grew up in Miami. He earned a bachelor’s degree in food and resource economics, a master’s in counselor education and a doctorate in higher education at the University of Florida.His career in higher education has included stints at Southern Methodist University, the University of Arkansas, Temple University and, most recently, Auburn University.In the past, Student Affairs oversaw everything from on-campus dining and housing, to student engagement programs. The recent reorganization moved several departments, including orientation programs and university publications, out of Student Affairs.“Those things were part of a portfolio that included a number of other things,” Carry said. “Now we’re saying, let’s drill down and focus on those things that are really most important to students.”He explained that moving several offices out of Student Affairs’ jurisdiction shouldn’t reflect negatively on their importance.“At the end of the day, I think the USC freshman, sophomore, graduate student isn’t sitting around saying, ‘that used to report to Student Affairs, but now it doesn’t so now I can’t use it anymore,’” he said. “That’s not their reality.”The reality of attending USC, Carry said, is being a part of a hyper-involved and highly motivated student body. He said he hopes to meet as many students as he can and make himself as available as possible to the student body. He said students could connect with him on Twitter at @DrAinsleyCarry.“To me, USC is like the best of all worlds — great athletics, great academics, the most diverse student environment, not to mention the city of Los Angeles,” he said. “I’ve worked at a number of schools, but the potential for world-changing opportunities? I’ve never seen it more expressed in a campus than here.”Though Carry seemed excited to start the fall semester, he also expressed concerns about the allegations of sexual assault that led the U.S. Department of Education to launch an investigation of USC’s compliance with Title IX standards. He said he hoped to handle the situation by treating the students involved the way he would want his own six-year old daughter to be treated by her university when she attends college.“The concerns that some students have expressed about our approach and response to claims of sexual assault are important to me, that we get to the truth, that we figure out a way to move forward,” Carry said. “And I know it’s important to the president and provost because these are people’s kids.”He also saw USC’s relationship with the Los Angeles Police Department as a hot-button issue, in light of the incident last spring when more than 70 LAPD officers broke up a student party and arrested several students.Carry said the protests that the USChangeMovement and other students organized in the wake of the incident made an important point, but the university needs to take stronger action.“I get it,” he said of students’ anger over the incident. “But how do we facilitate an intelligent conversation in light of that context. It’s easy to protest and rally and get angry, but it’s harder to sit down and look at both sides of the story and ask how do we find a middle ground.”Even as he acknowledged the potential difficulties the university will face handling these issues, Carry emphasized his excitement to work with students and faculty to better USC.He cited the university’s focus on constant improvement as tremendous motivation. He said the fact that administrators want to improve USC’s graduation rate, already high at 90 percent, shows the university’s determination to keep improving.“[USC focuses] not just on how can we be the best on the west coast or how can we be the best in the United States, but how can we be the best in the world. That’s exciting,” he said.While Carry mentioned so many over arching goals for the university, he said he hasn’t lost sight of accomplishing a few of his own – including learning the fight song.“I’m excited about learning USC traditions. I’m still waiting for somebody to teach me the fight song,” Carry said. “I know how to “Fight On” right now, but they haven’t taught me the fight song yet.” Follow Annalise Mantz on Twitter @asmantz
