SMC hosts zumbathon for cancer

first_imgIn honor of breast cancer awareness month, the Saint Mary’s Stand Up to Cancer club held a zumbathon to raise funds for cancer research on Saturday in the Angela Athletic Facility gym. Club president Christi Hutch said about 125 people attended the three-hour dance marathon. In addition to the zumba dancing, the event featured prize raffling and vendors selling various products to support individuals fighting cancer in the South Bend area. Twenty zumba instructors from the area volunteered to direct the exercises for participants. To break up the three consecutive hours of dancing, Troop ND and the Irish Dance team performed at the event’s halfway point, Hutch said.    “This event is fantastic because it incorporates the involvement of the South Bend community, as well as the involvement of the student communities at Saint Mary’s and Notre Dame,” Hutch said. “We have come together today to fight for a good cause.” Leah Ramaekers, club historian, said she admires her organization’s work. “This is the club’s second annual zumbathon, where 100 percent of our proceeds will go to the ‘National Organization to Stand Up to Cancer,’” she said.   Club vice president Julia Ritter said the fundraiser’s popularity makes it a successful fundraiser. “The zumbathon worked so well last year that we’ve become obsessed with zumba and therefore, we’ve decided to keep doing it as our fundraiser,” Ritter said.   Saint Mary’s alumna Kimi Troy, who graduated with a degree in English Writing, helped coordinate the event. Troy said she presented the idea of holding a zumba charity event to the student activities board as a way to connect with the community and fundraise for the national “Stand Up to Cancer” organization.  “I have been involved with the program ever since,” Troy said.   Allison Lukomski, another club member, said her own dancing ability had nothing to do with her enjoyment of the event.  “Even though I am a bad dancer, it really doesn’t matter if I am a good dancer or not; I am dancing to make a difference,” she said. “Cancer runs in my family and because of it, the fight is more personal to me … I want to combat it in any way possible.” participant  Olivia Jackson said. She said she would definitely recommend this event to friends in the future.   “Zumba is a great workout, and why not give back to the community at the same time?” she said. Hutch said approximately $1,100 was raised at the end of the Zumbathon. Contact Chelsey Fattal at [email protected]last_img read more

Toure apology ‘good news’, says Guardiola

first_imgManchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola insisted nothing has changed in his stormy relationship with Yaya Toure although he welcomed the Ivory Coast international’s apology for controversial statements issued by the player’s agent.The City manager was talking on Friday just hours after Toure issued an apology over his dispute with the Spaniard as he attempted to bring an end to an impasse that has seen him left out of the team since the opening weeks of the season.Toure’s agent Dimitri Seluk had originally created the problem by criticising Guardiola for his treatment of Toure and other City stars.But while Guardiola has accepted the apology and Toure is available for selection for the Premier League leaders’ clash with Middlesbrough on Saturday, his hopes of a recall look slim given several in-form players are currently ahead of him in the pecking order at City.“I spoke with Yaya this morning and of course it is a private conversation so I know what happened, what he said, of course,” said Guardiola at a news conference.“It’s so important for Manchester City, that’s the most important thing.“And of course for Yaya, who I appreciate. I have known him for a long time,” said Guardiola, who met Toure when they were both at Barcelona.“I read what he wrote and that’s all. Of course it’s good news for Manchester City but it’s most important for Yaya as well.“Yaya was in all our meetings and training sessions. You knew the situation. Nothing changed.”The relationship between Guardiola, who arrived at City in pre-season, and Toure collapsed after comments from the Ivorian’s controversial agent Seluk which had the City manager demanding an apology before he would consider recalling him to the team.Seluk accused Guardiola of “humiliating” Toure by leaving him out of the Champions League squad for the current group stage, launching an astonishing personal attack on the manager in the process.‘Misunderstandings’  While Toure apologised, his agent may not have helped when he claimed that he had personally not said sorry, but merely called for peace in the feud between the club and his client.Guardiola was in no mood to clarify the situation when pressed further on Friday, saying: “I answer about Yaya. I am not saying any more.“I spoke with him, it’s good, that’s all. I’m now focused on Middlesbrough. I know the situation.”In a statement published earlier on Friday on his website and his Facebook page, Toure said he apologised on behalf of himself and “those who represent me” for all the “misunderstandings from the past”.He added: “Those statements do not represent my views on the club or the people who work there.“I have nothing but respect for Manchester City and only wish the best for the football club.”Toure, who is in the final year of his contract, has been at City since joining from Barcelona in 2010 and has won two Premier League titles, two League Cups and one FA Cup during that time.Meanwhile Guardiola also denied there was any major altercation between City players and staff and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi following City’s 3-1 midweek Champions League victory over the Catalan side.Reports claimed a furious Messi was involved in a confrontation with City coach Mikel Arteta.But Guardiola insisted: “I spoke with Arteta. It’s impossible, he admires so many things about Barcelona, the institution, about Messi in this case.“And knowing Mikel as I know him, he’s one of the best people I’ve met in my life, it’s impossible that he could have an argument with another excellent person like Messi. Impossible.“First it was Fernandinho, now it’s Arteta, let’s see who it is tomorrow (Saturday). Let’s see if you finally guess,” added Guardiola sarcastically.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Irish Water shut down drilling operations in Lough Foyle following protests

first_imgDrilling operations on Lough Foyle have been suspended indefinitely by Irish Water following ongoing pressure on the Irish Utility. A drilling pontoon had been constructed at Carrickarory Pier in Movllle in recent weeks, however, that plan has since been abandoned and the construction has since been dismantled.This rig was to carry out a geophysical investigation in anticipation of a sewage discharge pipe being installed in the centre of the fishery. Crane arrives to dismantle drilling pontoon at Carrickarory Pier, Moville.The move follows concern raised from politicians, fishermen and local protesters in the area.Last week, the Campaign for a Clean Estuary received confirmation from John Mc Cartney, Director of Conservation and Protection,  that operations had been halted following concern about Oyster breeding in July/August on the Lough Foyle.Operations will not resume until an opportunity to evaluate concerns have been raised.Speaking to Donegal Daily, Enda Craig, said: “Cranes have arrived to dismantle the Irish Water drilling rig that would have destroyed a very valuable and important fishery at Carnagarve on Lough Foyle. “Irish water were told by the fishermen that the rig would be blocked if it attempted to locate onto the pipe site.“A fortune of money squandered because Irish Water did not think it worth their while to consult with the stakeholders of the fishery.“The crane driver at the pier confirmed the rig be loaded onto lorries and transported back to Scotland after spending two weeks anchored at the nose of Carrickarory Pier in Moville.“It is now time for Irish Water to confirm how much this debacle has cost the taxpayer of Ireland.”Irish Water shut down drilling operations in Lough Foyle following protests was last modified: August 14th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)last_img read more

Video in HTML5: Still an Unresolved Issue

first_imgTags:#web#Web Development A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market frederic lardinoiscenter_img It only took 3 years to go from HTML2 to HTML4, but the HTML4.01 specifications were published 10 years ago and even though today’s web looks very different, we are still waiting for HTML5. The Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group started preliminary work on what is now known as HTML5 in 2004 and the W3C HTML Working Group was adopted this draft as the basis for the HTML5 specs in 2007. Some modern browsers already offer partial support for HTML5, but there are still quite a few issues that need to be resolved before we will see the finalized version of the HTML5 specifications. One area where there is still a lot of discussion is support for video in HTML5.What Codec?Philippe Le Hegaret, the interaction domain leader for the W3C, talked about this issue in an interview with WebMonkey’s Michael Calore. According to Le Hegaret, video support is still one of the main issues surrounding the development of HTML5. Safari and Chrome are both based on the same open-source WebKit engine. Video support, however, is not part of WebKit yet, so every vendor implements it differently. Currently, browser developer disagree over how to implement this feature and what codec to use. Apple wants to use uses H.264 and Mozilla, Google and Opera support Ogg Theora. As of now, HTML5 still includes the
