‘Make the Number Zero’ fundraiser underway

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — The Indiana Coalition to End Sexual Assault (ICESA) launches the third annual “Make the Number Zero” fundraising campaign August 1. With a goal of $50,000, this campaign seeks to end sexual violence and human trafficking in Indiana. Individuals and companies can donate to the campaign online here throughout the month of August and September.The donated funds will help ICESA continue growing programs, creating a deeper impact, reaching more people, and expanding prevention strategy. It will also help continue shifting culture and strengthening Indiana communities to end sexual violence; ensuring all victims receive the services they need and deserve.The previous year’s campaign provided the opportunity for over 900 sexual assault victim advocates to attend comprehensive, trauma-informed training, conferences, and webinars. These various educational opportunities for victim advocates result in survivors receiving better services and overall care.In addition, the 2017 campaign contributed to the creation of over 1,000 “We’ve Got Your Back, backpacks” which include clothing, toiletries, undergarments and flip-flops. These backpacks were delivered to victim advocates and sexual assault nurse examiners who provide them to sexual assault victims who submit their clothing to evidence after receiving a medical forensic exam.The donations also helped to bring focus to the need for additional services throughout the state.  As a result, nine rape crisis centers were developed across the state and ICESA began the administrative role for the Indiana Protection for Abused and Trafficked Humans (IPATH).“ICESA is working to end sexual violence and human trafficking in Indiana,” said ICESA’s Chief Executive Officer, Tracey Horth Krueger. “Your donation will truly help us make the number zero as you will be making a meaningful impact on survivors and support sexual assault service providers, and empower communities in our state.”Overall, these donations help change Indiana’s landscape for responding, serving and preventing sexual violence and human trafficking. Donating to the “Make the Number Zero” campaign fills the gap in resources throughout all communities in the state.last_img read more

Tropical Storm Dorian’s Potential Local Impact Currently Unknown

first_imgA tropical storm warning has been posted for Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. St. Lucia is currently under a tropical storm watch. In addition, favorable water temperatures, as well as low wind shear in the storm’s path, will likely lead to more strengthening.The National Hurricane Center says that additional watches or warnings could be issued later Sunday for portions of the Windward and Leeward Islands. The center also advises those in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Hispaniola to monitor the storm’s path.Dorian is expected to become a hurricane by the time it reaches the Northeast Caribbean sometime during the middle of the week. Forecasters expect the storm to undergo increasing wind shear later this week as it interacts with land, potentially leading to gradual weakening.The NHC also says it is too early to tell what impact, if any, South Florida could feel from Dorian. Dorian is certainly keeping forecasters guessing, for now.The tropical storm, which formed over the weekend, is currently located more than 2,100 miles to the southeast of South Florida.It has top winds of 40 miles per hour, and should continue moving in a west-northwesterly direction.2 PM EDT: #Dorian is getting a little better organized as it moves toward the Lesser Antilles, were tropical storm conditions could begin as early as Monday— National Hurricane Center (@NHC_Atlantic) August 25, 2019last_img read more

USC renames VKC, implements preliminary anti-racism actions

first_imgThe Task Force on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, formed in 2015, which recommended more than 20 action items though few were implemented, will also be expanded to include new members of students, faculty and staff. The new committee will aid the taskforce in identifying structural and institutional bases of inequality on campus and developing initiatives such as mandatory implicit bias training and sensitivity and course offerings on racism.  “This is a long journey, and it’s going to take a lot of commitment,” Folt told the Daily Trojan. “It’s a chance for us to really get a good look but start taking actions pretty precipitously with as broad involvement as possible. And if we do that, a month from now, it’ll be better, and two months from now, it’ll be better. And I think that’s the point … to keep moving forward, involving people and making actions that can get us moving ahead.” According to Folt, these are the first of several actions the University will implement to address racist institutions and structures and support its Black and marginalized communities.  “He expanded research, academic programs, and curriculum in international relations,” Folt said of von KleinSmid. “But, he was also an active supporter of eugenics and his writings on the subject are at direct odds with USC’s multicultural community and our mission of diversity and inclusion.”  The Von Kleinsmid Center will temporarily be renamed The Center for International and Public Affairs as USC removes its former title, President Carol Folt announced in a communitywide email Thursday. The change follows months of petitions and scrutiny stemming from former University President Rufus von KleinSmid’s status as a known eugenicist.  The Von KleinSmid name and bust were removed Wednesday night following a unanimous vote from the Board of Trustees executive committee. (Photo courtesy of Jerome Ching) Folt also wrote that Zukoski and Senior Vice President of Human Resources Felicia Washington will spearhead the search for a Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer, a position the University aims to fill by fall.  Spaces for underrepresented students will also be created on two floors of the Student Union in the fall as part of Vice President of Student Affairs Winston Crisp’s multi-year initiative to expand on-campus and cultural community spaces including for Black, Latinx and LGBTQ students, Folt announced. USC will also launch First Generation Plus, a program to provide resources to first generation, spring, transfer and undocumented students. Folt’s letter comes after criticism of her previous email May 31, with many students calling it a performative gesture acknowledging the killing of George Floyd and other Black victims at the hands of police brutality with no administrative action. Following the email, students called on the University to address and acknowledge racism on and off-campus, to cut ties with the LAPD and to rename VKC via a Black Lives Matter solidarity march Saturday. Petitions from students such as rising senior Jephtha Prempeh and letters from campus organizations including the Black Student Assembly and USC Student Coalition Against Labor Exploitation made similar demands.  “We urgently need training to raise awareness of conscious and unconscious biases,” her email read. The email also announced the implementation of an advisory board for the Department of Public Safety, five years after its recommendation from the Provost’s Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion. To be composed of faculty, staff, students and members of the surrounding campus community, the board will be led by Provost Charles Zukoski and report directly to Folt on safety protocol, policing and engagement with the community on- and off-campus. Folt also said the board, which she hopes will materialize in a matter of weeks, will examine DPS’ relationship with the Los Angeles Police Department and its history of racial and identity profiling.  In the interview with the Daily Trojan, Folt said she has been attempting to enact these changes to campus since her inauguration but has dedicated significant attention to addressing the issues created by the coronavirus pandemic. As the University makes the transition to return to on-campus living, Folt looks to continue to address anti-Blackness with the advice from diversity committees and other advisers.  In an interview with the Daily Trojan, Folt said the taskforce will also evaluate student demands on defunding DPS and cutting ties with the LAPD.  The Board of Trustees executive committee voted unanimously to remove the name and bust of von KleinSmid Wednesday night. The renaming comes more than a year after former Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Michael Quick announced the formation of a nomenclature committee February 2019 comprising students, faculty and staff.  “It’s pretty critical for a leader not to lead with their chin but to bring people with them and lead with the things that are going to take real action, and can avoid the mistakes of the past,” Folt said in the interview. “You always wish you could do more and do it faster and do it better, but I really do think we’re in a really good position to act quickly.” “This moment is our Call to Action, a call to confront anti-Blackness and systemic racism, and unite as a diverse, equal, and inclusive university,” the email read. “You have asked for actions, not rhetoric, and actions, now.” “[These are] decisions that need to be done in consultation with people, and I personally believe what we want is a wonderful, safe environment with great community engagement,” Folt said in the interview. “We want to do it in the best possible way, and I think we lead with our mission, and then we take the actions necessary to get it.”  In addition, Folt wrote that she has tasked Washington to work with the community to develop an online Mandatory Unconscious Bias Training program for Fall 2020.  Nathan Ackerman, Ana Mata, Shaylee Navarro and Sarah Yaacoub contributed to this report.last_img read more

first_imgThis weekend the undefeated Wisconsin Badgers take on the unranked Clarkson Golden Knights and unranked St. Lawrence Saints in their first away games of the season in New York on Friday and Saturday night.These first away games follow a spectacular opening weekend in Madison where the Badgers swept No. 12 Boston College in the first two home games of the season.Neither the Golden Knights nor the Saints have picked up a win this season both going 0-2 in the first weekend of the regular season. The Golden Knights take on their second Big Ten team of the season after losing two in a row to Penn State last weekend.Women’s soccer: Badgers to play final regular season games versus Nebraska, Ohio StateThe No. 17 University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team (11-2-2, 5-1-3 Big Ten) will welcome Nebraska (8-4-4, 4-1-3 Big Ten) Read…Last week they put up a good fight against the Nittany Lions but failed to keep the momentum going on Saturday. Over the weekend the Saints fell to the University of Maine by more than two goals each game. Both the Golden Knights and the Saints host the Badgers at home and will look to upset the No. 13 Badgers.Jack BerryIt was announced on Tuesday that Berry was honored as the Big Ten Third Star of the Week. He was a pivotal piece at goalkeeper during the opening weekend for the Badgers including shutting out Boston College in one of the two games. If Berry can continue to stand strong in net it will be a tremendous help to the Badger team.Allowing the Young Players to Make Big PlaysIt is evident even in the very beginning of the season that there are multiple talented young players for the Badgers this year.Women’s Hockey: Badger’s seek to continue win streak during home series against PrincetonThe undefeated Wisconsin Badgers (6-0-0, 2-0-0 Western Collegiate Hockey Association) are poised to face off against an unranked Princeton (0-0-0) Read…Giving them the chance to get out on the ice and give a new energy to the team worked for the Badgers in their games against Boston College over the weekend. Freshman Brock Caulfield brought excitement when he scored his first career goal on Saturday night. The young guys are here, hopefully for the long run and giving them the chance to grow and push each other as a team on the ice is going to build a camaraderie as the season progresses.Keeping the Momentum Going on Both Offense and DefenseEven though it is still early in the season, there has been strong play from both the offense and defense.The Badgers have set themselves up with a great beginning to the season if they can keep the fire and momentum that was evident in weekend one as the season progresses it is quite likely that the Badgers will be headed for a year packed with wins.last_img read more

Deontay Burnett is stepping up and finding his role

first_imgSophomore running back Ronald Jones II may have stole the show against Oregon, rampaging his way to a program-record four touchdowns, but Saturday night also saw the arrival of sophomore wide receiver Deontay Burnett. The slot receiver found himself thrust into a bigger role after redshirt junior Steven Mitchell Jr. suffered a season-ending injury, and Burnett was up for the challenge. He tied his career high with seven catches for 87 yards and found the end zone in the Trojans’ 45-20 win over the Ducks.“It was time for other guys to step up,” redshirt freshman quarterback Sam Darnold said. “They did, and they did a great job.”Darnold has looked for Burnett on several key plays since seizing the starting role, and the pair’s connection extends off the gridiron.“Me and Deontay have great chemistry,” Darnold said. “We play basketball together in the offseason all the time.” Burnett agreed that he and Darnold have synergy on the field. “We have a good connection. We’re just out there making plays for each other,” he said. “Hats off to Sam: He’s a tremendous talent.” Burnett had made noise before, racking up 93 yards on seven receptions against Arizona State in October. He had also nabbed a touchdown on his only catch of the game for the past two weeks. Saturday was the first time Burnett managed to combine scoring with high yardage.“I just always had to be ready,” Burnett said. “It’s all coming at me now, and I just have to lock in and take every opportunity that comes my way.”He certainly rose to the occasion on Saturday. Burnett’s longest reception of the day came in the second quarter, when he took the ball into Oregon territory on a 29-yard reception.But Burnett’s biggest highlight of the game came in the two-minute drill. He accounted for 42 of 45 yards in the Trojans’ final touchdown of the first half. After grabbing a Darnold bullet for 17 yards to convert a third-and-long, Burnett reeled in two more receptions for 23 yards and scored a two-yard touchdown on his fourth reception of the drive.“All of our guys did a great job running their routes and expecting the ball every single play,” Darnold said. “That’s been the huge key so far this season. Everyone is taking advantage of their opportunities.”Burnett said it was “surreal” taking the field in Cardinal and Gold every week, and he now hopes to settle into his bigger role over the coming weeks.“I’m comfortable,” he said. “I just have to correct some mistakes that I’ve been making with some film.”A tough follow-up assignment awaits, however, as the Trojans travel to Seattle next weekend to face No. 4 Washington. But Burnett is raring to go toe-to-toe against the undefeated Huskies.“They’re a good defense, but we’re a good offense,” he said. “The best will come out next week so I can’t wait, and I know my teammates can’t wait, either.”Despite USC’s much-maligned slow start to the season, the Trojans are just a game out of the Pac-12 South lead and still have an outside chance of making the conference championship. A loss at Washington likely crushes that dream, but an upset could bring it that much closer to reality.Not that Burnett needs any reminding. “It’s November,” he said. “We have to just go: all gas, no brakes.”last_img read more
