PA Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine Convenes “It’s On Us PA” Campus Sexual Assault Prevention Roundtable at the University of Pittsburgh It’s On Us PA Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine today convened an “It’s On Us PA” roundtable discussion at the University of Pittsburgh to solicit feedback from education and community stakeholders on the role of administrators, students, community members and policymakers in combating sexual violence in schools and on college campuses.Last month Governor Wolf announced “It’s On Us PA” – the first statewide campaign to address sexual assault in schools and on campuses. Building on the national “It’s On Us” movement launched by President Obama and Vice President Biden in 2014, “It’s On Us PA” engages education leaders as well as students, teachers, families, and communities to make a personal and public pledge to play a role in preventing and responding effectively to sexual violence. Since the launch less than a month ago, over 200 people – including representation from over 100 schools across the commonwealth – have taken the pledge and signed on to the campaign.“It is on all of us to ensure that Pennsylvania’s students receive a quality education without having to worry about the threat of sexual assault in our schools and on our college campuses,” said Dr. Levine. “Governor Wolf is committed to created schools that teach – and ensuring that those schools also provide a safe and nurturing environment for our students from kindergarten through college. Sexual assault should never be part of any student’s education experience – and I am proud to join Governor Wolf and the over 200 Pennsylvanians that have already taken the “It’s On Us PA” pledge.”Dr. Levine was joined at the event by State Senator Jay Costa, State Representative Dan Frankel, as well as representatives from the PA Department of Education, PA Commission for Women, PA Action Against Rape, Pittsburgh Council on Higher Education, Duquesne University, University of Pittsburgh, California University of PA, Indiana University of PA, Community College of Allegheny County, Carlow University, Chatham University, South Allegheny School District, Avonworth School District, Bethel Park School District, Allegheny Intermediate Unit, Woodland Hills School District, Baldwin-Whitehall School District, Northgate School District and South Fayette Township School District.“We all share in the responsibility to keep students safe and prevent sexual assaults on college campuses,” said Senator Costa. “I’m proud to be part of the “It’s On Us” campaign and see it as an opportunity to further open lines of communication and build bridges between our students and the community. While these discussions won’t be easy, they couldn’t be more important.”“I’m proud to join Physician General Levine for this important roundtable discussion in the heart of my legislative district,” said Representative Frankel. “President Obama and Governor Wolf have shown great leadership in working to combat the epidemic of campus sexual assaults and I believe the “It’s On Us PA” campaign is going to make a real difference in the lives and safety of our students across the Commonwealth.”Today’s event is an important step in a year of action, in which the Wolf Administration is working with community leaders and stakeholders from across the commonwealth to develop state-level policy recommendations to address the pressing issue of sexual assault in our schools and postsecondary institutions.# # #Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf February 22, 2016 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter

Columbus East won by a score of 4-1.The Olympians struck first on a ball rolling in the box that #20 settled and finished into the top corner. Before the first half ended, Batesville’s Emily Rose finished a breakaway that started from a pass by our center defender Abby Brandt to even up the score at halftime. Batesville conceded the 2nd and 3rd goal of the match in the middle of the 2nd half. The Lady Bulldogs continued to battle and missed several chances on goal. Within the final minute, the Batesville GK Julia Hunter got caught off her line and an Olympian ripped a shot into the back of the net from 30 yards out to finish off the scoring.“The score makes it sound worse than the game played out to be.We played without several key players tonight and we kept up with a good opponent. The final score does not reflect that, but the girls worked hard and challenged Columbus East throughout the game. Gabi Garcia played excellent for us tonight. She filled a void in the center due to an injury and held her own. She was all over the field and started many of our attacking opportunities.” Batesville Coach Kyle Laker.The Batesville JV lady Bulldogs defeated the Columbus East JV Olympians with a final score of 3-0.Taylor Rowlett scored all three goals with 2 assists from Audrey Weigel and 1 assist from Baylee Rohlfing.

David Moyes is adamant Manchester United will be a major force this season even if he does not make the additions he is looking for. United’s pursuit of Cesc Fabregas appears to have stalled, meaning they will head back to England at their end of their five-match tour of the Far East and Australia without strengthening as so many anticipated. Links to Everton duo Leighton Baines and Maroune Fellaini continue to be made, and having already stated he needs more bodies in midfield the latter man in particular seems certain to be of interest. Yet Sir Bobby Charlton is confident Rooney will remain where he is beyond the September 2 transfer deadline and could still get the 52 goals he needs to match his own club scoring record. “Wayne Rooney is a Manchester United player and I think that he will continue to be a Manchester United player,” said Charlton, who was speaking during a visit to the Laureus-supported Operation Breakthrough project. “We are not silly enough to make any rash decisions. “I don’t like losing really good players and he is a really, really good player. “I was hoping one day that he might score as many goals as I had and that would have been really nice if it was at our club. I’m still thinking that way.” Moyes has confirmed skipper Nemanja Vidic will face Crewe in a pre-season friendly at Gresty Road this evening. Yet Moyes has reminded worried United fans that their team are defending Premier League champions. And with the club slapping a ‘not for sale’ sign around Wayne Rooney, other than the retired Paul Scholes, Moyes has all the players responsible for that triumph available to him. “The squad Manchester United has, without any additions, will be tough opponents for any team this year,” he said. “That is the squad that finished 11 points clear in the Premier League. I am confident in that squad.” Speaking ahead of the final tour game against local Hong Kong outfit Kitchee FC, Moyes is relishing the campaign that lies ahead. Yet talk continues to be dominated by the pursuit of Fabregas and Rooney’s status at United. More may become clear with the Fabregas situation when he returns to training with Barcelona amid speculation he will restate his desire to remain at the Nou Camp. There have been no such assurances from Rooney, who is said to be wary of the influence Sir Alex Ferguson still has at Old Trafford and the Scot’s negative opinion of him. Press Association
