People wearing face masks to protect against the new coronavirus walk at a government event aiming to stimulate consumer demand and consumption in Beijing, Saturday, June 6, 2020. AP China says it has largely stopped the spread of the virus at home, though it continues to have occasional localized outbreaks. It is on guard against imported cases as it begins to ease restrictions on flights and people arriving from abroad. (AP) The National Health Commission said Sunday that there were also five imported cases in the previous 24-hour period, bringing the nation’s total case count to 83,036. BEIJING – China has reported its first non-imported case of the new coronavirus in two weeks, an infected person on the island of Hainan off the southern coast.
By Ben DeatherageCOTTAGE GROVE, Ore. (Aug. 6) – Despite power problems in the southern Willamette Valley for much of the day due to a local aviation accident, it was fully restored just in time so that all of the racing would be completed for Fan Appreciation Night at Cottage Grove Speedway.The Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified finale was an incredible race as Grey Ferrando had the race of his life. Ferrando got out in front on the opening start and was the car to beat for much of the feature until Jesse Williamson brought pressure.Coming to the white flag Williamson edged out Ferrando, but Ferrando took the spot back out of turn two. When the two cars exited the fourth and final turn it was Williamson collecting his third local win of the season.Grey Ferrando got sideways on the front stretch and got together with Mark Wauge. Wauge edged out Ferrando for second. Collen Winebarger was fourth followed by Steven Sturdevant.In the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods, Willy McFall showed the way. McFall paced the field until lap four when Mike Medel made it around him. Medel’s tenure was short lived as Jorddon Braaten passed him on lap five. Braaten remained in the lead the rest of the distance to score his sixth victory of the year.Andrew Mathers was second while Medel ran third. Shawn Hand crossed the wire in fourth and Buddy McHargue was fifth.
THE Leeward Islands Hurricanes were staring defeat in the face at stumps on Sunday, the second day of their sixth-round match in the Digicel Four-Day competition against the Barbados Pride being played at the Kensington Oval.Replying to the Pride’s first innings score of 313 all out, the Hurricanes were first routed for a paltry 163. Asked to follow on, they were 16 for 4 at the close, still needing another 134 runs to force the Pride to bat again.Barbados, resuming from their overnight total of 302 for 8, were all out for 313. Promising paceman Alzarri Joseph dismissed both overnight batsman Justin Greaves for 38 and Jomel Warrican for 32, to end with figures of 5 for 42 off 24.2 overs. Both batsmen were on 30 overnight.In their turn at bat, the Hurricanes soon found themselves eight wickets down with just 90 runs on the board. They eventually folded for 163 all out.Had it not been for a tenth-wicket partnership of 73 between Nkrumah Bonner who scored 70 and Jason Campbell (39), things would have been much worse for the Hurricanes’ batsmen who were blown away by Kemar Roach 3 for 29, Miguel Cummins 3 for 34 and Kevin Stoute 2 for 29.Following on 150 runs behind, the Hurricanes were soon in tatters again, at 16 for 4. There was a wicket each for Roach, Cummins, Jomel Warrican and Roston Chase.Kacey Carty 12 and Gavin Tonge were the batsmen at the crease at stumps.PRIDE 1st Innings(overnight 302 for eight)O Phillips c wkp Hamilton b Tonge 6A Alleyne c Carty b Tonge 11S Brooks c wkp Hamilton b Joseph 63R Chase c Powell b Tonge 49J Carter lbw b Bonner 46+S Dowrich c Cornwall b Joseph 0*K Stoute lbw b Joseph 41J Greaves c wkp Hamilton b Joseph 38K Roach c wkp Hamilton b Bonner 3J Warrican c Otto b Joseph 32M Cummins not out 0Extras (b2, lb2, w3, nb17) 24TOTAL (all out, 100.2 overs) 313Fall of wickets: 1-14, 2-19, 3-125, 4-144, 5-144, 6-219, 7-245, 8-257, 9-310, 10-313.Bowling: Joseph 24.2-10-42-5 (w2, nb1), Tonge 14.4-6-29-3 (nb5), Hosein 9-0-48-0, Cornwall 23-1-79-0 (nb6), Campbell 15-2-65-0 (nb1), Bonner 14.2-4-46-2 (w1, nb4).HURRICANES 1st InningsM Hodge c wkp Dowrich b Roach 5J Otto c Carter b Cummins 0K Carty c Brooks b Cummins 0N Bonner b Chase 70+J Hamilton c wkp Dowrich b Roach 5R Cornwall c Carter b Roach 6A Hosein c wkp Dowrich b Cummins 0G Tonge b Stoute 17A Joseph c Roach b Stoute 5J Campbell not out 39*K Powell absent outExtras (b10, lb5, nb1) 16TOTAL (all out, 61.2 overs) 163Fall of wickets: 1-2, 2-12, 3-12, 4-22, 5-30, 6-37, 7-80, 8-90, 9-163, 10-163.Bowling: Roach 14-4-29-3, Cummins 14-7-34-2 (nb1), Greaves 11-4-19-0, Warrican 7-1-10-0, Stoute 9-1-29-2, Chase 4.2-0-22-1, Carter 2-1-5-0.HURRICANES 2nd Innings (following-on)M Hodge c wkp Dowrich b Roach 0J Otto c wkp Dowrich b Cummins 0K Carty not out 12A Joseph b Chase 1R Cornwall c Carter b Warrican 3G Tonge not out 0TOTAL (4 wkts, 15 overs) 16Fall of wickets: 1-0, 2-0, 3-13, 4-16.Bowling: Roach 4-4-0-1, Cummins 4-3-4-1, Stoute 2-1-9-0, Chase 3-1-3-1, Warrican 2-2-0-1.Position: Hurricanes require a further 134 runs to avoid an innings defeat.
(Shideh Ghandeharizadeh | Daily Trojan) The revolution is happening; we are scorching the earth. Put your delicate feelings aside, and join the fight — we are duty-bound to address our nation’s past sins and continuing injustices and we should never forget it. In that same vein, playing dumb and asking questions like, “So I’m not allowed to wear Jordans or I’m racist?” or making condescending comments such as, “Just because I appreciate Black culture but didn’t post anything doesn’t make me racist” is effectively racial gaslighting. By making those remarks, you are indicating that you understand the dynamic relationship between the variables at hand — Black culture, your exploitation of it and your white privilege — and have chosen to dismiss and trivialize it rather than see it for what you know it to be. You’re not fooling anyone. The world is on fire, the revolution has begun and history has taken a sharp turn. On May 25, George Floyd was killed in cold blood by a Minneapolis police officer while three more aided and watched, prompting nationwide outrage and protests in all 50 states. As a result, the Black Lives Matter movement is far more visible than it has ever been before; not only is it the driving force behind recent policy change within cities across various states — such as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s recent decision to reduce LAPD funding — but it is also forcing white people to have uncomfortable conversations and face truths they otherwise may never have confronted about racism. It is this shift toward accountability that hits closest to home. Popular culture in America today — yes, virtually all of it — is directly rooted in Black culture. Our white privilege cushions us, enabling us to reap its benefits while ignoring its dire realities. To listen to Black artists, wear clothing inspired by Black culture, use slang coined by the Black community, capitalize on traditionally Black beauty trends, to consciously draw on fragments of Black culture for your personal benefit but then stay silent when Black people are being killed is objectively and patently harmful. Your silence is complicity in injustice, in oppression and an ugly confirmation that if given the choice to retain your privilege at the cost of Black lives, you would. I am a white, privileged female who draws extensively from Black culture every single day of my life — from the music I listen to and the clothes I wear to the slang I use and the people I identify with. I am far from alone in that reality; in fact, many of you reading this probably meet the same criteria. Over the past week, I’ve had many long-winded, awkward conversations on the subject of cultural appropriation and its significance with my white peers — some of them disappointed me, while others outright sickened me. After reflecting on these conversations, I decided that I want to use this platform to send a very clear message to my white readers, colleagues and friends. In 2020, white girls in Jordans populate Instagram’s “Explore” page; rap is the No. 1 genre; public figures like the Kardashians and Billie Eilish, among many, many others, successfully exploit Black trends and behaviors (everything from cornrows to use of a “blaccent”) that their very pioneers have been persecuted for embracing. Why? Because the business model is such that Black culture sells when white people hijack it. The most disturbing part of it all is this: I know that white people taking accountability for appropriation tarnishes their “enjoyment” of the very culture they’re exploiting and for that reason, addressing those realities isn’t “fun.” Aside from the obvious fact that curbing systemic racism was never meant to be “fun,” what a small sacrifice to make — what a tiny, insignificant price to pay — to have a part in bringing those oppressed justice. Any who evaluate that tradeoff and choose silence play an active role in the persistence of racism in America. Rachel McKenzie is a rising senior writing about pop culture. She is also the opinion editor for Summer Trojan. Her column, “The Afterword,” runs every other Wednesday. Newsflash: Recognizing your privilege and doing something about it is not meant to be comfortable. In fact, the goal is for you to feel encumbered and burdened, for you to acknowledge your implicit biases and the role you’ve played (whether you realize it or not) in perpetuating racist societal structures and to then actively try to mitigate that effect. This shit is meant to make you think and squirm in your seat. In order for real change to happen, white people must feel uncomfortable. Perhaps that one meager moment of discomfort can lend some insight into how Black people in American feel on a daily basis and have felt for the past four centuries. Like systemic racism, appropriation of Black culture is so ubiquitous and normalized that most white people can actively engage in it and never, not once in the course of their lives, be forced to confront that fact — not that that’s anything new. The infatuation with Black culture by white people has historical roots; look no further than the whitewashing of the rock ‘n’ roll genre and hip-hop culture, along with other cultural thefts, for evidence. The enduring influence of Black culture in America as well as white people’s enduring exploitation of it is not a matter of opinion — it is fact. That being said, I’m not here to “whitesplain” cultural appropriation. The point I’m trying to make is that, in the wake of this nationwide call to action, white people are under scrutiny in a way we have never been before — and that has the potential to be a great thing. Right now, the way you choose to approach this issue as a white person (the conversations you do or don’t have, the sacrifices you are willing or unwilling to make) are extremely consequential. With that in mind, I have a few thoughts I want to share.
Published on August 28, 2012 at 1:33 am Contact Chris: firstname.lastname@example.org | @chris_iseman Facebook Twitter Google+ Sean Hickey’s time at Syracuse has been marred by injury. Finally healthy, he’s getting a chance to play because of an injury to SU’s most reliable offensive lineman, whom head coach Doug Marrone considers the best in the Northeast at his position.Hickey is taking over the left tackle spot for 2011 All-Big East first-team tackle Justin Pugh, who had shoulder surgery in the spring and will likely be out until the end of September. After injuries to both knees, including tearing the ACL in his right knee before the start of last season, Hickey’s finally going to see some playing time.Hickey, a junior, is a member of a revamped offensive line that is a major question mark heading into the season. Though Syracuse has veterans in left guard Zach Chibane and center Macky MacPherson to count on, the right side of the line is inexperienced after losing starters Michael Hay and Andrew Tiller to graduation. Hickey’s performance will be critical for the line early in the season.“I trained as hard as I possibly could this past year with Coach (Will) Hicks in the weight room, and with my footwork once I was cleared to do that,” Hickey said. “I had to shake some playing rust off because you’re going to have that.”Hickey came to Syracuse as a left tackle, but Pugh already had that position locked up. The coaches moved the 6-foot-5, 285-pound Hickey to the right side to back up Hay. The knee injuries, though, ended those plans.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith the injury to Pugh, Hickey is back at left tackle.From the start of training camp, Marrone raved about Hickey’s work ethic and ability to practice at a high level despite his limited action with the team in the previous two years. At the start of preseason, Marrone also said Hickey is among the best linemen that he and his staff have recruited.“He’s been solid. I think that’s a credit to him because going into it, I was very concerned,” Marrone said. “Going through those injuries and really not being on the field, for him to come in and do the job he’s done, I think that’s very commendable on that part.”While Hickey’s role as the starting left tackle is likely only until Pugh returns, his status as a starter might not be as temporary.Right tackle Lou Alexander never showed the SU coaches consistency during camp. Even on Saturday, when Marrone released the depth chart of the season opener against Northwestern, the head coach said Alexander still has to improve.Marrone said Alexander is starting because he was the best player “available” for that position. When Pugh returns, Hickey could slide over to right tackle.Marrone called it a “good problem,” and offensive line coach Greg Adkins said the coaches have some decisions to make as the season progresses.“We’ll have some options down the road,” Adkins said. “We’ve got some good decisions down the road that we can certainly look at.”Syracuse looks to develop specific qualities in its offensive linemen. Rather than only focusing on brute strength, the Orange wants linemen who are strong enough to handle defensive linemen off the ball while also being athletic enough to block the linebackers in open space.It’s a combination of strength and quickness that doesn’t come right away.“We’re making progress still,” Adkins said. “We’re not a finished product, but I see the arrow pointing up.”Guards Ivan Foy and Rob Trudo battled for the starting spot on the right side, and while Foy is listed as the starter, he technically hasn’t won the competition. On the depth chart, Marrone listed the starter as Foy “OR” Trudo.Foy has also never played in a game at Syracuse.If Hickey lives up to Marrone’s expectations, then the left side of the line shouldn’t suffer much without Pugh. If the right side falters, though, the Orange likely has to get through the first month of the season before Pugh returns and the line can be shaken up.For now, Hickey’s waited too long to get caught up in hypotheticals. He’s finally getting his chance, and he’s not about to waste it.“I’m going to go out there and play the best football I can play,” Hickey said. “And the coaches, it’s up to them whatever they decide to do.” Comments
The USC women’s basketball team knows a lot is on the line.The Women of Troy (1-2) went into this season ranked No. 23, but following a pair of road losses last weekend, received just nine votes in this week’s Associated Press top-25 poll.After a loss against No. 12 Georgia last Sunday and an upset by unranked Nebraska 68-50 last Friday, the team will head to the Bahamas for the Junkanoo Jam this weekend.With the tournament set to start Friday, the Women of Troy will battle No. 2 Notre Dame first, then face either No. 8 Duke or Gardner-Webb on Saturday.“We’re getting ready for the pressure [defense] we’re gonna see in the next four games, including Notre Dame in the Bahamas,” senior guard Jacki Gemelos said. “It’s a different type of team. The East Coast teams are more pressure-oriented.”Entering the competition with back-to-back losses might mean USC will be seen as weak, but freshman forward Alexyz Vaioletama could not stress the team’s determination enough.“It’s either go big or go home,” Vaioletama said. “We’re going big, we’re not backing down. It’s good for us to be an underdog, because [Notre Dame] may underestimate us and not know what our strengths and weaknesses are.”The games against Nebraska and Georgia could have been easy road wins for the Women of Troy. The team’s progress was arguably set back by consecutive losses. The importance of road wins is not only crucial for the team’s record, but also for its ranking.“We have to go out on the road and get big wins. That’s a big showing, when you’re on the road, for the committee,” senior guard Ashley Corral said. “We need to show that we’re just as good as those top-25 teams.”Playing such highly ranked teams in the Bahamas will not only give the Women of Troy a shot at redemption, but also a chance to get a taste of what March Madness play would be like.Notre Dame (3-1) would prove a challenge for any team at this point in its season, but it comes off a recent loss against No. 1 Baylor, while Gardner-Webb has started off its season with a 0-4 record, the first time since 2005 it has boasted such a record.Duke (3-0) has recently seen a strong performance from reserve Tricia Liston, who scored a career-high 22 points in the Blue Devils’ last game, resulting in a 80-54 victory against Western Kentucky.“Competing against teams such as Notre Dame and Georgia and Texas A&M on their turf or on a neutral site definitely gets you ready for when you get to play in the tournament,” USC coach Michael Cooper said.
Published on May 1, 2017 at 6:28 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse’s first loss since February bumped the Orange from its spot atop the college lacrosse rankings and down to No. 3 on Monday morning.The top-seeded Orange (11-2, 4-0 Atlantic Coast) fell to No. 4 seed North Carolina (8-7, 1-3) in the ACC tournament in Durham, North Carolina, on Friday by a score of 16-15. The drop in the rankings ended a three-week Syracuse run at the top, which the Orange held onto for longer than most. In the seven weeks before SU assumed control, all seven No. 1’s had lost.Friday was the Orange’s first loss since Feb. 25 against Army and it marked the first time Syracuse would not play for the conference title since joining the ACC in fall 2014.SU fell just shy of making its largest comeback in program history on Friday when it overcame a nine-goal deficit to tie things up in the fourth quarter. North Carolina originally jumped on a 11-1 first-half run to open the game. Ben Williams won 16-of-31 faceoffs but failed to win one for more than 20 minutes in the middle of the game.“It just got away from us in the second quarter,” SU head coach John Desko said. “There wasn’t anything we were really doing well.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments
