The Notre Dame student senate met Wednesday to decide on the nomination of two new members to the Student Executive Cabinet for the remainder of the 2019-2020 Academic term. Student Body President Elizabeth Boyle, a senior, and Student Body Vice President Patrick McGuire, a junior, were patrons of the nominations.The nominated candidates were Katherine Wallace for director of academic affairs and Tiffanie Cappello-Lee for press secretary & director of communications. McGuire read the cases to be made for each of the candidates.“We have selected Katherine to be the director of academic affairs because she is a passionate, committed, experienced and talented student leader who serves with focus and enthusiasm,” McGuire said. “Katherine is a current member of the Academic Affairs Department who brings Executive Cabinet leadership experience as the director of athletics emeritus. Katherine, a member of the Notre Dame fencing team, is also a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Council. She has served as a McWell Thrive leader and is a Notre Dame Monogram recipient. Katherine has performed in each of these roles with exceptional skill, diligence and leadership capability.”As Wallace was not present at the meeting due to a scheduling conflict, the Senate could not ask her any questions directly. McGuire addressed the potential concern about her absence by saying she would be available over email and a deputy director will later be appointed as well.“[I’ve] also had some good discussions about the fact that it’s important for a director to be at Senate which is a very genuine and important concern,” McGuire said. “Good thing is, even if in the future Catherine is unable to make meetings because of practice, we are also appointing a deputy director of Academic Affairs learners, so, if something like this were to happen again, there would still be representation from the department.”The Senate quickly moved through Wallace’s nomination and confirmed her. They then moved onto the next candidate, Cappello-Lee.“[Cappello-Lee] has a deep dedication to service, justice and excellence,” McGuire said. “On campus, Tiffanie [Cappello-Lee] has served as a research assistant in Dr. Michale Ferdig’s malaria genetics and genomics research lab and a co-coordinator for the Global Health Conference. Tiffanie [Cappello-Lee] is a Hesburgh-Yusko Scholar, a member of the Glynn Family Honors Program, and a Sorin Fellow in the Center for Ethics and Culture.”Beyond campus, Cappello-Lee does pro-bono consulting for Mercy Homes for Boys and Girls, conducted research on the environmental impact of dietary changes in China and water pollution’s impact on health in Hong Kong, and has conducted extensive research in Ottawa and Santiago, Chile, McGuire said.“She has also interned at the management consulting firm AArete,” he said. “Through these experiences, she has gained and honed her skills of marketing, team building, research, writing, and consulting — all skills that will prove essential to her role as press secretary and director of communications.”Cappello-Lee was present at the meeting, and Senate only had one question. Sam Cannova, junior class council president, wanted to gauge her decision-making process in a very specific, high-stress environment.“As I’m sure we all know, Notre Dame lies on the Indiana fault line,” Cannova said. “We have a Radiation Laboratory on campus. Further, one of the typical roles with the press secretary and director of communications is to cover all sorts of news. One of the frequent stories usually takes Elizabeth and a director of comms slash press secretary to the Radiation Laboratory. So, in the event that you were in the Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory with Elizabeth [Boyle] and Pat[rick McGuire], and an earthquake occurs, in which the exits are just like blocked, ceiling falls down, and you can’t get out, and there’s a radiation leak, but there are only two hazmat suits. What do you do?”After the audible laughter in the room had died down, Cappello-Lee answered the question.“That’s a very important question and very realistic,” Cappello-Lee said. “Ultimately, I would just give it to Elizabeth and Pat[rick], like that’s the type of person I am, and since they are good people, I’d probably want to save them.”There were no more questions regarding her nomination, and after she exited the room, the Senate confirmed her nomination.Following the nominations, the Senate heard from director of department of community and engagement director, senior Alex Yom, about promoting this year’s department events, including Converge.“So far this year, I’m sure you’ve all seen the South Bend adventure guide being posted,” Yom said. “So we’re trying to give more access for students of all years to understand the different restaurants and things to do in South Bend. In terms of civic engagement, we’re proud to have done the Converge kickoff, which had over 200 signups this year matching people from different political views.Yom said the department also worked with ND Votes on a voter registration competition, registering over 1,200 people across campus. Next semester, the department’s focus is will be on ensuring students have access to volunteering and internships in South Bend.“So we’ll be putting on the social concerns fair with the Center for Social Concerns … and then the big idea actually that we’re all really excited about because the debate is going to be held on campus next year,” Yom said. “… We’re really excited to put together sort of like this debate facilitator model, building off of the success of Converge. We’re hoping [to] pair different dorms together and have debate facilitators trained in each dorm pairing, and basically have a sort of debate model up until the actual presidential debate next fall. So the Senate would be a huge help to publicize this in your respective residence halls and trying to recruit people.”Following the talk from Yom, the Senate voted to move a resolution recognizing and encouraging No Shave November to the floor. Sam Delmer, a sophomore senator from the Dillon community in Baumer Hall, was one of the patrons and presented the bill to the Senate.“The goal of No Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free,” Delmer said. “Members of the University community may participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, letting those legs go natural … participation is by no means obligatory, but the recognition of the program offers important recognition of our community’s allyship with cancer patients and their families.”There were not many concerns with the resolution, but some wondered if the bill would be discriminatory against hairless people.“Delmer said the bill would not be discriminatory because shaving itself is the concern and not shaving because one does not have any hair to shave is acceptable,” he said.Following these brief concerns, the Senate motioned for the end of debate and passed the resolution.Tags: student senate

But the South appears to have brought its outbreak under control thanks to an extensive “trace, test and treat” program that has drawn widespread praise. Its reported death toll is around 250 — vastly lower than that of Italy, Britain, Spain and France, which have each recorded at least 24,000 fatalities.

South Korea said Sunday it will loosen social distancing rules this week to allow gatherings and events to take place after the number of new coronavirus cases dropped significantly in recent days. The country endured one of the worst early outbreaks of the disease outside China and strict social distancing has been widely observed since March.Scores of events — from K-pop concerts to sports seasons — had been delayed or cancelled, while museums and galleries were closed and religious services suspended. “Gatherings and events will be permitted under the condition that they follow disinfection measures,” he added.The South reported 13 new infections on Sunday, taking the total to 10,793, the Korea Centers for Disease Control said.Some professional sports, including baseball and soccer, are due to start their new seasons this week after being postponed over virus fears, although the matches will be played behind closed doors.The government is also set to announce this week the dates for students to return to school, which is expected to be some time around mid-May, according to Yonhap news agency.Topics :
BEN CLASSON/Herald photoFor every Pavel Datsyuk, there is a Tomas Holmstrom.For every skilled player, a team needs a gritty player totake hits, get beat up a little bit and ultimately be there to collect reboundsin front of the crease. Blake Geoffrion is that guy for Wisconsin. ?For Blake to be effective, I think it?s one of the thingshe has to do all the time,? UW men?s hockey coach Mike Eaves said during hispress conference Monday. ?If you take a look at the national hockey league, if youtake a look at Mr. Holmstrom, who plays for the Detroit Red Wings, he?s made aliving being in the 3-by-4 area in front of the crease and making lifemiserable for the opposing goaltender with his ability to see the puck, gettip-ins and rebounds,? Eaves continued. Geoffrion began showing signs that he is ready to fulfillthat role. He picked up an assist Saturday night because a rebounding shot hitoff of him and found his teammate Michael Davies for the goal. He also set upanother by screening Minnesota State goaltender Mike Zacharias from the play. Although Geoffrion is willing to do whatever it takes tohelp the team win, as he indicated during the post game press conferenceSaturday, he still envisions himself doing bigger, fancier things, Eaves said. ?He needs to get that mindset like Mr. Holmstrom: ?This iswhere I need to make my living,?? Eaves said. ?Wayne Gretzky?s office wasbehind the net dishing pucks; his living has to be up front.??Time to take the leadThe men?s hockey team hasn?t had any difficulty this season comingfrom behind. Wisconsin has won or tied nine games this season when facing adeficit heading into the third period. ?We continue to play with confidence in our ability not topanic and to continue to play and do the things we want and have found ways tocome back and get ties or victories,? Eaves said. Since the Badgers have scored first in just 40 percent oftheir games this season, they?ve almost grown accustomed to having to comeback. According to Eaves, it?s not as though his team doesn?t playwell from the get-go, it?s just that the opportunities haven?t turned intogoals. ?In the first period we?ve felt that we?ve played somereally good hockey,? he said. ?We just haven?t scored. And as a result, we findourselves behind.? While the success has been there, Eaves hopes his team can alsoget practice playing with the lead, because, as he put it, it takes a muchdifferent mindset. ?I wish we would have more games where we had the lead goinginto the third period, because that?s a different mentality,? he said. ?Playingfrom behind, there?s a different pursuit, a different aggressiveness that youneed to have.? Saturday night was one of the few opportunities Wisconsinhas had this season playing with a lead, and a big one at that. The Badgersjumped out to a 4-0 lead in that one but gave up two unanswered goals. Eaves was pleased the team was able to gain some experiencein those situations, but he still would like to see more balance. He felt thatthe team played too cautiously and may have been the direct link to thoseMaverick goals. ?Connelly continues to emergeBeyond the second-half numbers ? in which Shane Connelly hasallowed two or fewer goals on all but three occasions while allowing just onegoal five times ? is a player who understands the game more. According to Eaves, his junior goaltender has latched on tothe idea that he can go out and play pucks and survey the ice as well as act asa third defenseman. ?I think he?s evolving into becoming a much more effectivegoalie,? Eaves said.
FILE PHOTO: Chelsea’s Hudson-OdoiLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea would have to sell one of their established wingers in order to satisfy Callum Hudson-Odoi’s desire for immediate first-team action. The Italian manager has come under increased scrutiny in west London, having dropped to sixth in the league and with some Blues fans joining in with chants for him to be sacked during Monday’s FA Cup loss to Manchester United.His team are set to contest Sunday’s League Cup final with Manchester City, attempting to avenge a 6-0 humiliation at the Etihad Stadium earlier this month.There were also some jeers when Sarri introduced midfielder Jorginho as a second-half substitute on Thursday.The Italy international, signed in the summer from Sarri’s former club Napoli, is regarded by many as embodying his manager’s ‘Sarri-ball’ philosophy, a strategy that has recently failed to produce results and critics feel is one dimensional.“I think in the first 30 minutes (against Malmo) we understood why Jorginho is very important for our team. We were in trouble to exit from our half, on pressing,” he said.“I hope that our fans will be able to understand that Jorginho, for us, is really a very important player.” Teenage prospect Hudson-Odoi has grown restless at Stamford Bridge and handed in a January transfer request as offers came in from German champions Bayern Munich.The 18-year-old, who has yet to start a Premier League match, seized a rare opportunity by scoring the Blues’ final goal in Thursday’s 3-0 Europa League victory over Swedish club Malmo, wrapping up a 5-1 aggregate success.But manager Sarri called for patience, explaining that he would need to allow Pedro, Willian or Eden Hazard to depart to accommodate Hudson-Odoi now.“You need to understand that, in the same position, we have Pedro, Willian and Hazard,” said Sarri.“I want to remind you that Callum, with this one (against Malmo), played 14 matches. There isn’t in England another 18-year-old player with 14 matches in the first team. So I think that we are using him in the right way at the moment.”“If I am at the club and I want Callum to play consistently, I have to sell another winger,” he added. “Otherwise the manager is in trouble.” Share on: WhatsApp
