The journalist was pounced on by seven men armed with iron bars and cables on 4 May 2006. They beat him about the head and neck, leaving him unable to work for the next two weeks.Witnesses identified one of his assailants as a follower of the marabout (witch doctor), Sheikh Béthio Thioune. The marabout had told the press last week that he planned to support the re-election campaign of the current president, Abdoulaye Wade, at elections in February 2007, adding that he could deliver “four million disciples”.The assault on the journalist was in reaction to an interview he did on 27 April with one of the marabout’s disciples who cast doubts on the degree of the support he said he enjoyed.“Beating up a journalist who reports unwelcome news is an act from another age, which calls for a firm reaction from the Senegalese authorities,” the press freedom organisation said.“The police must carry out an urgent and thorough investigation into the attack and punish those who were responsible. There must be no impunity for those tempted to silence or intimidate the press during an election campaign”.

Bolstering a relationship with South Bend

first_imgIn a February interview with The Observer, now-student body president Lauren Vidal said the top priority for her and vice president Matthew Devine, both seniors, was to promote service both on campus and in the community.“We really have this idea of service, and although we understand that’s a broad term, we really [prioritize] service to our peers and to our community as a whole,” she said in the interview. Photo courtesy of Lindsay Huth Student Government sponsored Quad Markets on Oct. 10 on North Quad. Local vendors sold goods ranging from accessories to produce.Now, 10 months into their term leading Notre Dame’s student government, Vidal and Devine have narrowed their service focus while also expanding their vision of a more complete, mutually beneficial relationship between students and the city of South Bend.“We’ve really tried to be very deliberate with how we approach that image of [students] going out into the community and trying to also balance bringing part of the culture of South Bend to campus and also helping students to find ways that fit their lifestyle so that they can go off into South Bend and explore, or at least have some sort of visibility to what South Bend is,” Devine said.Through programs such as Quad Markets, the recently launched 29 for 29 — which pairs each residence hall with a South Bend family that has recently moved out of the Center for the Homeless in order to build relationships between students and South Bend residents — and the annual CommUniversity Day, Vidal and Devine have striven to create a stronger bond between the University and the city.South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg said the relationship has grown deeper over the course of Vidal and Devine’s administration and recent years.“I think our relationship is enviable as college towns go,” Buttigieg said. “I’ve been in university communities where there isn’t a good relationship, where it’s either hostile — I’d say that’s true at, for example, Harvard and Cambridge — or where the university and the community are kind of doing their own thing and not very involved with each other.“Here is very different. And it’s important that we not take that for granted because we really benefit from it.While University president emeritus Fr. Theodore (Ted) Hesburgh advanced Notre Dame as a global institution during his administration, Buttigieg said, University administrators and students have continued to cultivate an international presence, but also develop a robust relationship with the local community.Buttigieg said collaborative projects such as the Eddy Street Commons, the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture on West Washington St., the Notre Dame Turbomachinery Facility and Notre Dame involvement in community organizations such as La Casa de Amistad and the Robinson Community Learning Center are recent developments that have greatly benefited both the city and the University.“All of that would have been very hard to picture 10 or 20 years ago,” Buttigieg said.In response to recent student feedback, Vidal and Devine have also addressed the issue of crime in the community in collaboration with local law enforcement agencies, holding periodic meetings with representatives from the University, city, county and state levels.“In terms of the relationship with South Bend, finding the most effective channels of communication has been a key to our relationship with local law enforcement,” Vidal said.“It’s been a huge success. We’ve seen that really opening a forum for communication between all the parties allows us to figure out what’s really happening in terms of looking at all the instances of crime or robbery or burglary and figuring out what we can do as students to encourage safety and what they can do better in terms of serving us.”Buttigieg said clear channels of communication between students and the city extend beyond law enforcement, and there is still room for growth in the relationship.“There are so many different dimensions to the relationship — students as people who get involved, volunteer, start things, do things in the city; students as residents, whether you’ve got students living in the city limits or not, they’re all in the community and so we need to make sure we’re meeting the needs of students, and there’s no better voice for that than student government; [and] students as participants in the economy, working or shopping or eating or drinking in the city,” he said.“All of those things will work better if student government is able to create a flow of information about where the opportunities are for the students to know and then where the needs are for us to know, so that we’re doing a better job of connecting students to the community at large. I think a more structured relationship would probably help us get a feel for what’s on students’ minds and how much access they feel they have to the city.”Buttigieg said small changes, like signs pointing out that downtown South Bend is less than two miles from the heart of campus, can help make a positive difference.Devine said more students have also contributed to the growth of the relationship by taking advantage of work experience available in South Bend.“There have been a lot of people who have started looking at South Bend in different ways,” Devine said. “There have been a lot more people taking advantage of professional opportunities here in South Bend.”Through internships and volunteer opportunities, students can gain meaningful experience and career preparation, Buttigieg said.“Students can get that hands-on experience not just as practice … but as real-world impact,” he said. “And they’ll find a lot of partners, not just in city government, but in the non-profit community, the business community. It’s a small enough community that you can navigate it and have an impact at a young age in a short of amount of time.”Vidal, who spent the summer in South Bend interning for Indiana Legal Services, said she had a positive experience and grew more attached to the city, as more students have done, too, through cultural events and unique dining options in South Bend.“There are a lot of new and exciting businesses in South Bend, … a lot of cool new restaurants that we’ve seen that a lot of students have adopted as their own,” Vidal said.Buttigieg said students have become more “active citizens” and bring ideas he never would have thought of to the city rather than the city soliciting student help.“There’s a level of energy there that’s really exciting,” he said. “And we’re going beyond the traditional model of student involvement as going down to the soup kitchen.Going down to the soup kitchen is great, but we’ve got students applying their talents in so many different ways to the life of the city.”For their part, Vidal and Devine have sought to bring South Bend to campus and encourage students to bring campus to South Bend.“There are lots of positive things obviously happening in South Bend,” Devine said. “We’ve tried to promote the visibility of it, too, but also bring some of those positives to campus and help us develop our image off campus, too, as what we can be as a University.”Overall, Buttigieg said he hopes the relationship between the University and the city stands out as one of the strongest elements of both parties.“Our goal is for the relationship with the city to be one of the reasons you would come to the University of Notre Dame,” Buttigieg said.Tags: City of South Bend, Downtown South Bend, Lauren Vidal, Matthew Devine, Notre Dame, Pete Buttigieg, South Bend, Student governmentlast_img read more

Pakistan seamer Hasan Ali a doubt for Sabina Park Test

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC) – A groin injury has put Pakistan seamer Hasan Ali in doubt for the opening Test of the three-match series against West Indies bowling off here tomorrow.The 23-year-old, who is yet to make his Test debut, picked up the injury during last weekend’s three-day four game against the WICB President’s XI and is yet to recover.The Pakistan Cricket Board said the player would undergo rehabilitation in an attempt to return to full fitness quickly.“Clinical assessment – there is strain to one of his adductor muscles.

New Badger recruits share common roots

first_imgFreshman defenseman Courtney Burke (6) came out of the same high school as fellow Badgers Brianna Decker, Blayre Turnbull and Kim Drake – Minnesota’s Shattuck-St. Mary’s, a noted prep hockey powerhouse.[/media-credit]Five new players are slated to join the Wisconsin women’s hockey team next season, continuing a Badger history of bringing the best prep players to UW’s rink.The Badgers (10-4-1, 6-4-2 WCHA) announced last Wednesday forwards Sydney McKibbon, Sarah Nurse and Annie Pankowski, along with defensemen Melissa Channell and Jenny Ryan, have declared their intent to adorn the cardinal and white jersey.“We think they are good hockey players, other people think they are good players, but they are also good students and they come from good families and have different backgrounds,” head coach Mark Johnson said. “It’s a good class. We’ve got five quality people and five quality players so we’re excited for them to be part of our family.”As with past recruiting classes, they bring experience, talent and academic success to the program. But what makes this group unique is the chemistry they will already have coming into the unfamiliar world they will soon be calling home.McKibbon and Nurse will join the Badgers after finishing their current season together with the Stoney Creek Junior Sabres in the Provincial Women’s Hockey League. If working alongside them as teammates was not chemistry enough, the duo is currently linemates and the top two point earners for the Sabres.A forward from the town of Oakville, Ontario, McKibbon led her team in points last season with 41, 29 of which came from assists. Nurse benefitted from many of McKibbon’s plays, finding the back of the net 21 times, a team-high, and was second to McKibbon in points with 31.Ryan and Pankowski bring a similar dynamic to the team, both playing at the North American Hockey Academy in Stowe, Vt., for the past two seasons. While Pankowski is known for her offensive success, Ryan plays a critical role in maintaining a strong backline for the team.“In the recruiting world, there is no rhyme or reason, you are looking for players that fit into what you are trying to do,” Johnson said. “It is sort of fun. … They will be able to come, and as freshman go, they will be more comfortable with someone they can bounce things off of immediately.”Although Channell will not be coming in to the Badger program alongside a current teammate, she was raised in the same town of Oakville as McKibbon and the two competed for Canada’s Under-18 team in the 2011 Canada-USA series together. Channell also played alongside Badger senior Saige Pacholok in the 2012 Meco Cup for Canada’s Under-22 team.Past recruiting classes for the women’s hockey program have not had the same amount of prior history working together as this incoming group. Yet having a familiar face on the rink as a freshman is not an uncommon trend for Johnson’s team.Freshmen Courtney Burke and Kim Drake were teammates for four years at Shattuck St. Mary’s Academy before taking their bond to Wisconsin this season. The two join a long line of Badger players that once played at the elite hockey school in St. Paul, Minn., including current players sophomore Blayre Turnbull and senior Brianna Decker.“Having Blayre [Turnbull] and Decker here and Kim [Drake] coming in with me I felt like I already had friends so it wasn’t as uncomfortable or as unusual,” Burke said of her first weeks with the Badger team.Johnson recognizes the power of connections his current players may have with potential incoming players, seeing it as a positive addition to his recruiting process.“It’s all about developing relationships and with Facebook and all that, kids talk to each other. So [recruits] ask ‘What’s it like in Wisconsin’ and [current players] say ‘Oh, we’re having a blast,’” Johnson said. “That kind of stuff gets back to teams and players and it helps.”The Shattuck clan isn’t the only lineage of players with similar backgrounds. Freshman Molly Doner came to Wisconsin from the same NAHA team as Pankowski and Ryan, playing with them last season. The three also got to experience the joys of a successful recruiting process together, and Donor is excited she will once again have them as teammates.“Last season, both [Pankowski and Ryan] actually committed right after my official visit as well, so we all came back and were hyped up on adrenaline looking forward,” Doner said. “For me, to the next year, and for them, in two years.”Injured junior Brittany Ammerman and her sister Brooke Ammerman, who finished her four years at UW last season, played at NAHA as well.While Doner could list the successes and prestige of the program Johnson has built at UW, she said what won her over was the chemistry she saw among the Badger players and the instant connection she felt to it with the other former NAHA players.“I never really had to opportunity to know [the Ammermans] beforehand, but once I came here they knew me and it was that automatic connection,” Doner said. “Having them here, they kind of know what we went through, and it’s like all the Shattuck girls. They all have been through the same things. Just seeing all the chemistry the girl had together and how much fun they have, that was really the main selling point for me.”Beyond their play together, the five soon-to-be Badgers each bring additional experience at the international level, either for the U.S. or Canada. Johnson sees this type of exposure on a recruits’ resume as a signal they have played against older, stronger, more experienced players, similar to what they will face in the college hockey stage.With the program’s biggest name, Brianna Decker, graduating from the program after this season, the shows for the next offensive powerhouse will need to be filled.“Are they going to come in and be Brianna Decker? Well Brianna Decker wasn’t Brianna Decker, as a freshman she grew into that position,” Johnson said. “They come in and their eyes are big and a lot is thrown at them, but if they have good work habit and are consistent with what they do they will get better. We are lucky we’ve had some special players so hopefully this next group, one of them, two of them, or all of them will end up being a special player too.”Follow Caroline on Twitterlast_img read more
