The Occupy USC General Assembly said it plans to focus on advocacy and creating open forum, after the group held its second meeting Friday at Tommy Trojan.Sit in · The Occupy USC General Assembly began to hammer out goals at its Friday meeting. – Katelynn Whitaker | Daily TrojanOccupy USC, which began Oct. 25 as an offshoot of the national Occupy Wall Street movement, aims to increase its presence on campus.“The main thing we wanted to work on as a movement was advocacy and getting people aware of what’s going on,” said Julia Wang, an occupy USC participant movement and sophomore majoring in neuroscience. “We are saying that people with the privilege should be more aware of what their position of power is.”Occupy USC has no leaders to ensure everyone’s voice is heard, said Max Hoiland, a participant and senior majoring in film studies.“It’s an attempt to create democracy in a real, genuine form,” Hoiland said. “The whole idea is that everyone does have the choice to participate — there’s no hierarchy.”Elizabeth Gustafson, a USC alumna and participant, said she decided to join the movement because its broader cause could attract and bring together large groups of people.“What I like about Occupy USC is that even though it’s focused on [specific issues], there’s a broader interest that appeals to a lot of people,” Gustafson said. “If any activism can take place, it’s at USC. It’s bringing all of the different causes together to build consciousness and awareness.”The Occupy USC General Assembly action committee is currently focused on putting together a moment of silence for Wednesday in response to the police brutality that occurred at Occupy Oakland on Oct. 24.
Chelsea winger Victor Moses has praised his club teammate Cesar Azpilicueta after his nomination as part of a 5-man shortlist for the BBC African Footballer of the Year Award.Moses further said that the aforementioned Azpilicueta has been a big influence on him most especially the defensive part of his game as a wing back.The Super Eagles forward was speaking in an interview with Goal.com. He said:“I’d say Azpilicueta [has influenced me most].”“He played a huge part in my defensive development last season.” he added.Speaking further, the former Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Stoke City man said:“He is always behind me, always constantly talking to me to make sure I am in the right position. When is the time to go and when’s the time to stay.“The more games I was playing, [the more] we were getting used to the formation and position I was playing, which worked out well for me and he helped a lot.“He understands me. We established a partnership which was very good.“To me, I would say that Cesar is underrated. As a defender he has got everything. He’s quick, he’s got that desire, passion for the game. He just wants to play football. Azpilicueta is never tired. He can run all night in every minute. He wants to play every game.“I think he could play on a Saturday and then again on a Monday. He’s got a great ability.“It is great for us that we have him. He’s someone that loves the game. He is always talking to every player before games. He wakes everyone up and says we have got to go out there and win this game.“The position I am playing at right wing-back, I know I can score goals there. Wherever the manager plays me, I will play. I am not a player who tells him where I want to play and where I don’t want to play. I just want to enjoy my football. It is just a matter of time and the goals will come.“I am now used to this system after playing there last year. I hope to score more goals this season and help my team-mates. As a player, every season you want to do better than you did last season.“I want to be better this season than last season. I am aiming for more goals and assists.“I have already got the fitness. First of all, it is about the hard work you put in to help the team as much as you can. Going forward, I would like more goals and assists.” he concluded.Victor Moses is on the 5-man shortlist alongside Sadio Mane, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita with the winner expected to be made known next month.Source: GoalRelated’2017, My Best Year So Far’ – MosesDecember 25, 2017In “Africa”Victor Moses’ Decision On Return To The Super EaglesMarch 11, 2019In “National Team”Moses Makes BBC African Award ShortlistNovember 12, 2017In “Africa”
A beer in memory of an American Civil War hero who hailed from Milford is to be launched in the same Co Donegal town. The Traveller’s Inn, Milford has launched the new house beer, which will be known as ‘Baxters 1867’.Owner Michael McBride commissioned the craft beer in honour of the Baxter family, whose roots to the building go back to 1867. Brewed by Kinnegar Brewing, ‘Baxters 1867’ is a crisp and refreshing pale ale.The beer is based on an American pale ale style in recognition of Samuel Alexander Baxter, who fought with the North in the American Civil War.Commenting on the launch, Michael McBride says the history of the Baxter family goes back a long way.‘I’ve been interested in the history of the building for quite some time and have often heard references relating to the Baxter family like the phrase ‘there’s still a light in Baxter’s’. Or the warning that was issued to many a misbehaving student, who was told they would ‘only be good for holding up Baxter’s Corner’. “I was intrigued by the family’s story, particularly when I discovered the connection to the American Civil War. I asked Rick LeVert from Kinnegar Brewing to create a craft beer inspired by the Baxter legacy and I’m delighted with the result.’Rick LeVert, Kinnegar Brewing says they loved working with Michael on this project.“Kinnegar Brewing is all about finely crafted, all natural farmhouse beers. Collaborations with like-minded, local businesses like Michael’s are a natural fit for us and a great way to experiment with new recipes and flavours. The added bonus is that customers get to experience more variety, enjoying craft beer at its best.’The launch of ‘Baxters 1867’ is a summer event not to be missed.‘Baxters 1867’ is exclusive to The Traveller’s Inn and will officially launch with a summer barbecue on Friday, 27th June at 7.00pm. All are welcome to come along, sample the beer and enjoy live music from The Brambles and DJ Paul McGlynn. BEER, BEER!

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180403_RyanMartinA soggy day for us today as rains move across the entire state. The heaviest rains this morning will be in southern Ohio, and later this afternoon and evening we see that threat farther north. Thunderstorms can happen and there even is an outside chance we see some strong to severe weather, although it’s not a big chance. We actually see better threats of thunderstorms farther west this afternoon. Rain totals remain on track to be from .25” to 1.25” over 100% of the state. Temps today will be above normal, making the only day out of the next 10 to have that kind of temperature profile. The map above shows total precipitation potential through tomorrow morning.Much colder air is on the way in for tomorrow. This cold air begins to blast in overnight tonight, but we think most of the moisture will be gone before it gets here. Rains will be trying to exit the eastern third to quarter of the state tomorrow morning, while light snow flakes can start to develop in NW Ohio .Generally, though, the northeast and north central parts of the state look like the best areas for snow development tomorrow, mostly due to lake enhancement. We won’t rule out wet snowflakes tomorrow from US 30 northward, but will be straight up and say that coverage will be limited to no more than 30% of that part of the state. The rest of the north just sees flakes from time to time. South of US 30, we just see the cold air dominating at from midday on. Temps will struggle to hit the mid-30s in the north Wednesday afternoon, and the mid-40s south.Thursday should be dry statewide, and we see some sun in there. But, minor moisture moves across the state overnight Thursday night through Friday morning. This little wave brings scattered light rain and snow showers through, but liquid equivalent precipitation will be limited to a few hundredths to no more than .2”. This can have an equal threat of rain or sloppy wet snow. The rest of Friday will feature clouds giving way to sun.Saturday and Sunday look to be mostly dry. High pressure moves across the state Saturday and we have some minor south winds in for Sunday. Still, cold air rules the weekend, and we see only minor moderation in temps for Sunday. South and southeast winds do develop Sunday afternoon ahead of our next system to start next week, allowing temps to get back closer to normal.Next week still looks to start damp. Monday we have moisture returning, but temps are colder again with strong NW flow. That means we can see wet snow, and perhaps a bit of rain mixing in. WE have to look for a coating to an inch or two over about 60% of the state for Monday. The cold lingers behind that initial system and yields a second batch of action for Tuesday. That wave will be limited mostly to the southern half of Ohio. We can add another .4” of liquid to the equation, and some of that may give an additional coating to 2” of wet snow. Cloudy skies will be seen north for next Tuesday.Mostly dry but still chilly next Wednesday, and then finally heading into Thursday, we have south winds starting to moderate temps a bit. We could get back to near normal for daytime highs by late next week.The extended forecast is largely unchanged this morning. Our next system still looks to develop out of a low moving over the eastern Corn Belt for the 13th. This system is farther south than 24 hours ago, and therefore is likely a less drawn out feature. WE still will look for .25”- 1” of rain across for that time period, but can expect drier weather for the 14th and 15th. A weaker front arrives on the 16th, with the potential of .1”-.5” of rain for Ohio. Finally, expect a strong spring storm complex for the 18th, and rain totals look higher. Right now we will project half to 1.5” rains out of that system.So, while we have some tweaks, generally our thought process is unchanged this morning. Cold and damp will be the buzzwords through the rest of this week and through midweek next week. Then, we continue to see a fairly active precipitation pattern, even when temps start to moderate a bit. Nothing here makes us change our thoughts on potential field work in the next few weeks at all.
A group of building consultants has developed a free app for mobile devices intended to provide detailed information on building techniques and materials.Content on Construction Instruction-HD, or Ci, includes silent animations explaining a variety of building techniques, a directory of building products organized by manufacturer, articles, a news section, and a video library. It was introduced in an article by Fernando Pages Ruiz at Fine Homebuilding in June.The app is an offshoot of Construction Instruction, a firm that provides on-site training, classroom seminars, and construction defect diagnosis. Consultants Justin Wilson and Mark LaLiberte were looking for a way of making information accessible to builders in the field, and came up with the idea of building a mobile app.In June, Ruiz wrote that Ci had been downloaded more than 120,000 times and had an active community of 64,000 regular subscribers. Its media director is Dan Morrison, the former executive editor of Fine Homebuilding who also helped launch Green Building Advisor.Ci can be downloaded at iTunes, Amazon and Google Play, and it works on any mobile device. According to Morrison, the app automatically senses the device it’s being viewed on, whether it’s connected via wi-fi or a cellular network, and the quality of the reception. “This means that videos load faster and play better than on YouTube or other websites,” Morrison said in an email.There are more than 100 technical articles and building science videos that complement the directory of silent animations, Morrison said.Ci invites manufacturers to upload technical documents and installation guides, Morrison writes, but “marketing hype” is prohibited.“Because information from manufacturers must pass muster with us, we do not segregate manufacturer content from our own,” Morrison said. “It is all good, useful and relevant.”
The about 60,000 strong crowd inside the grand Jawaharlal Nehru stadium went berserk as they bid goodbye to ‘Shera’, the mascot of the 19th Commonwealth Games that ended on Thursday.Sending the spectators in frenzy, Shera entered the field in an open decorated auto-rickshaw along with singer Shaan.Shaan, 38, a playback singer who apart from his albums and Bollywood music has given his voice to many hit Bengali, Telegu and Tamil film songs, sang to an energetic Shera on behalf of athletes and everyone present at the stadium.A smiling Shera waved his hands as they took a circle in the red coloured auto inside the arena.Shera does not leave until he gives a heartful performance with Shaan amidst the roaring shouts of joy from the spectators.–with PTI inputs

Mumbai: Indian equities fell for the ninth session in a row on Monday as investors fretted about health of non-banking finance sector, US-China trade tensions and uncertainty over poll outcome.In their longest losing streak in years, the BSE Sensex crashed over 372 points and the NSE Nifty dived nearly 130 points on sustained sell-off across the board. In the past nine sessions, the Sensex has lost 1,940.73 points and the Nifty has given away 599.95 points. The BSE index widened its loss towards the fag-end of the session on emergence of intense selling in financial stocks as fresh concerns over liquidity crunch re-emerged. In percentage terms, however, Sun Pharma was the biggest loser with 9.39 per cent drop. Intra-day, the pharma major’s shares tanked over 20 per cent. Other top Sensex laggards were Yes Bank, Tata Steel and Indusind Bank — falling as much as 5.58 per cent.
