first_img Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder Reporters Without Borders today voiced revulsion at the murder of Nisar Ahmed Solangi, correspondent for the Sindhi-language newspaper, Khabroon, in Kingri, Sindh province.Ahmed Solangi, 34, died in a hail of nine bullets after he was ambushed by six people on motorbikes and armed with Kalashnikovs, who shot him at point blank range as he was distributing newspapers on 17 June.“We are shocked by the murder of Nisar Ahmed Solangi, less than three weeks after the killing of Noor Hakim, in the tribal areas on 2 June,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “The deteriorating working conditions and the insecurity facing journalists in the rural areas of the country are extremely worrying. It is crucial both that the local authorities find and punish the killers of Nisar Ahmed Solangi and that the Pakistani authorities put an end to this lawlessness”, the organisation said.Sindh’s rural areas are currently the scene of serious conflict between rival clans. A friend of the reporter, Khan Muhammad, told Reporters Without Borders, “Solangi received death threats two days previously, from a Sindhi tribe, Junejo, which was unhappy about his reports”. The journalist had written an article contesting allegations by Junejo members that a rival clan had killed some of its members in a recent clash. The journalist asserted that they had been killed by police officers.The family of the murdered journalist has begun legal proceedings against members of the Junejo clan: Hadu Junejo, Makal, Nazir, Ghulam Haiser, Siddiq and Nural.A reporter on Sindh TV News, Abdul Khaliq, dismissed a theory that Nisar Ahmed Solangi had been killed for ethnic reasons. “He was killed because of his profession,” the journalist said.

The successful health and safety measures from last year will be implemented again and built on for the 2021 camps.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Despite challenges encountered last year, the 2020 Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps proved a great success and provided a welcome diversion for over 70,000 children across the country from the Covid-19 restrictions.It also marked an important milestone by welcoming the 1 millionth participant to the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps. The number of camps and capacity at this year’s camps will increase as we get closer to the summer months with some already on sale, but parents are reminded to book early to avoid disappointment as demand is expected to be higher than ever.Kellogg ambassador and Mayo Football Star, Cillian O’Connor was on hand to launch the 2021 Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps and will front the ‘Cúl Start’ campaign alongside Kilkenny Camogie Star, Grace Walsh with a range of social video content to be delivered across Kellogg’s social channels throughout the Summer.

We are looking forward to welcoming more children this year and for the camps to continue to play such a key role in the summer of budding sports stars.” she said.GAA Cúl Camps co-ordinator Charlie Harrison added “It’s time to make Summer plans! Keeping in line with Government guidelines we are thankfully in a position to deliver the camps during the months of July and August 2021 to children living in all 32 counties.“Naturally, after the year we’ve all had to endure, the idea of finally getting out of the house, being active and seeing other children sounds hugely appealing. We are mindful of the reality that Covid 19 will still be with us however, and we will be very much guided by the government and relevant authorities to ensure all reasonable safety measures and protocols are adhered to in the rollout of our camps.GAA President Larry McCarthy said “The success of our Kellogg’s Cúl Camps in 2020 was one of the GAA highlights in what was a difficult year for everyone. The focus and outlet that it gave to 70,000 of our young players in a safe environment provided a huge boost to them and their families and I am confident the camps can have a similarly positive impact this summer.“The reach and success of the camps is not limited to Ireland only; their growing popularity across our international network is a great source of pride and seeing the distinctive playing gear, not just across the island but in pockets around the globe, is fantastic.“A special word of thanks to Kellogg for a decade of supporting this vital project. It is without doubt one of the best and most and successful summer initiatives for children with Gaelic games and fun at the heart of it all.”For more information on the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps visit www.gaa.ie/kelloggsculcamps Twitter Email RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement LimerickNewsKellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps return for Summer 2021By Meghann Scully – April 27, 2021 213 center_img Linkedin TAGSGAAKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick Post Previous articleLimerick Post Show | Martyn CosgraveNext article€339,000 of Suspected Drugs Seized on April 26, 2021 in Limerick City – Three Men Arrested Meghann Scully WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Facebook Print Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener WhatsApplast_img read more

Growing up, giving back

first_imgIn the first 10 minutes of watching Javion Rookard in action, the 19-year-old director of the Cambridge Youth Enrichment Program (CYEP) took two phone calls, answered a text, helped soothe an upset child in need of a Band-Aid, finished cleaning the cafeteria after lunch, and directed a group where it needed to go. And he did it all with a smile.“I’ve always wanted to be director … Being director really means you can do anything. It means you have to do anything,” Rookard said. “I’m the lunch guy, the teacher, the trainer, the manager, the fundraiser. It teaches you to wear so many hats and be able to juggle multiple things at once … This job is never over. I don’t go home at 5 p.m. My phone never stops buzzing. It’s crazy, but I absolutely love it.”With more than 160 children at three sites across Cambridge, the enrichment program is the oldest and largest of Harvard’s Phillips Brooks House Association’s (PBHA) 10 student-run camps.The operations, officially called Summer Urban Program (SUP) camps, serve more than 900 low-income, at-risk youth, ages 6 to 18, around Greater Boston.The SUP programs provide a safe, supportive, positive environment for children through the summer. The programs teach violence prevention, and work to stop summertime loss of educational concepts. Research consistently shows that students, particularly those from low-income families, risk losing at least two months of literacy and math skills during the summer. The SUP camps work on that through activities that combine academics with social and emotional development. PBHA’s Cambridge Youth Enrichment Program (CYEP) was held at the King Open School in Cambridge. Photos by Kris Snibbe/Harvard Staff Photographer Art of crafting a popular program Javion Rookard (from left), CYEP director, and Sarah Gonzalez ’18 work with Amaya Fifield, an Amigo School eighth-grader. CYEP continues to grow as more youngsters learn about the opportunities it provides, including theater productions and arts and crafts projects. Jing Qui ’16 works with Joshua Aldinor, a sixth-grader from Benjamin Banneker Charter Public School. As Rookard checked in on classes making props for the upcoming end-of-the-season musical and began getting ready to lead a group of fifth graders in rehearsal, he also made time to recognize dozens of students by name. That particular skill was aided by his being part of the program for years.“This is my 13th year as part of CYEP,” said Rookard, who will be a sophomore at Bentley University this fall. “I started coming here when I was 6 years old. But my older siblings also came here. My oldest brother is six years older than me, and he also started when he was 6, so assuming I was with my mom when she dropped him off, I guess you can say that I’ve truly been coming here my entire life.”The campers seem to love him.“I think Javion is great. He’s so funny. He should be the director for at least two more years,” said Adrianna Brown, 10, of Cambridge. “We get to do so many fun things here,” she said. “We just went camping in New Hampshire, and they had a zip line! I also really like doing the science experiments and learning all about evaporation.”“My favorite part was going roller skating and getting to sleep on the rink. We watched movies all night and had pizza for dinner,” said Fabienne Douyon, 10 “and a half,” of Cambridge, who’s been coming to CYEP for “a lonnnnng time.”Brown and Douyon are just two of hundreds of kids Rookard oversees. He is, of course, aided by a host of college-aged counselors.“This is my first year at CYEP,” said Sarah Gonzalez ’18, of El Paso, Texas. “Harvard can sometimes be a bubble, and during my first year I know that I didn’t get out as much as I should have. I wanted to work here to build a better relationship with Cambridge and our surrounding community. Getting to know this community, the kids, and their families has been an invaluable experience.”“I do this because of the relationships that I build with the kids. That is my favorite part. Deep down, this is my heart,” said Rookard.” When they look at you as not just their mentor, but as their friend, that means the world to me. When they look at up smiling, well, that means we’re doing something right.”last_img read more

For Lakers, Suns, a pair of shooters have been sharp

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years LOS ANGELES — They’re coming in hot, Avery Bradley and Kelly Oubre are.In his pregame analysis of Monday’s opponent, Lakers coach Frank Vogel zeroed in on Oubre, the Phoenix Suns’ electric forward who’s been shooting lights out in his past eight games, going 28 for 59 (47.5 percent) from 3-point range.“Kelly Oubre is on fire right now,” said Vogel, most concerned with recent history and the 24-year-old forward’s previous three games.“He’s shooting over 50 percent from the 3, averaging over 30 points a game … and he’s obviously the second option to Devin Booker, who’s an All-Star-level player who didn’t make the All-Star Game. They’ve got a lot of firepower coming in here and we’re gonna have to play well to beat them.”center_img Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Related Articles “I love working with (Cook), he motivates me, keeps me positive – my roll dawg. We work out all the time together.”And by all the time, Bradley means anytime.“It can be anytime,” he said. “Definitely on off days we’re there. Practice days; if we have practice that night, we’re there, shootin’. Our plan was eventually get the opportunity, build confidence and then the hard work will kick in, and I think that’s what’s happening now.”TEAM USA FINALISTSAnthony Davis, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and JaVale McGee were named among 44 finalists for the 2020 U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team, it was announced Monday. The official 12-member 2020 U.S. roster will be announced later this year.Davis was a member of the 2012 team that went a perfect 8-0 en route to a gold medal in London. Howard started for the U.S. on the undefeated 2008 team that won gold in Beijing. And James is a three-time Olympic medalist (2004 bronze and 2008 and 2012 gold).“It’s a blessing just to be a finalist,” Kuzma said. “Growing up, I always wanted to play for the Olympic team. That was always a goal of mine. Never really knew if it was gonna happen, but the opportunity to be on the team. It’s a blessing.”STAYING SHARPWith just Monday’s game and Wednesday’s in Denver on the docket before the All-Star respite, Vogel said he talked with his squad about keeping their edge (and cutting down on those pesky turnovers – they had 24 in their victory at Golden State on Saturday).“This is a time of the season that teams take losses that they shouldn’t take,” said the first-year Lakers coach, whose team went into Monday’s game with the Western Conference’s best record (39-12). “We’re playing for something bigger, and it’s more important to us, and we’re not gonna be one of those teams; we’re gonna take care of our business tonight.”For his part, Bradley wasn’t concerned about All-Star break-itis infecting the Lakers’ locker room.“I’m not even worried about it,” Bradley said. “We got two more games, that’s the focus, just trying to play well before break.Plus, he said, “that’ll make my break better.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersPhoenix coach Monty Williams said the 6-foot-7 forward has defenders thinking so much about him getting to the rim for dunks that they’re giving him space to shoot.“The threat of him dunking on you at times makes you back up, so he’s had games where he’s knocked down 3s so that’s about it,” Williams said. “Obviously, we played an up-tempo type of basketball and Kelly’s hit 3s … he’s made shots.”On the other side, Williams’ squad would be wise to keep an eye on Bradley, the Lakers’ soft-spoken 6-2 defender. The veteran guard, a career 36.4 percent 3-point shooter, has been lighting it up in his past six contests, making 18 of 30 attempts (60 percent) from behind the arc in that span, including going 5 for 7 in the Lakers’ win at Golden State on Saturday.While Oubre has been able to take advantage of defenders in the 37-plus minutes per game he’s been playing during this recent hot streak, Bradley’s goal has been to capitalize on all the opportunities that come his way in the 23.3 minutes per game he’s been on the court.“To be honest, just staying in the gym, trying to find a way to get myself going. Late nights, me and Quinn Cook,” said Bradley, who was 0 for 10 in the five games before he found his current rhythm.last_img read more
