Students reflect on tradition of interhall football

first_imgWith football season commencing, many students get their football fill by cheering on the Fighting Irish and binge-watching other NCAA and NFL games each weekend. But for those who want to get out on the gridiron themselves, Notre Dame has no shortage of options.Last weekend kicked off the seasons for men’s and women’s interhall football. Reigning champions Welsh Family Hall and Stanford Hall look to defend their respective titles this year amid large and fiercely contested fields. Emma Farnan | The Observer Stanford and Duncan residents compete in the 2016 men’s interhall championship game held in Notre Dame Stadium on Nov. 20. Interhall football started this past Sunday for both men’s and women’s halls.Senior Matt O’Brien, captain of Stanford’s team, played football in high school and was thrilled at the opportunity to get out on the field once again. He said the Sunday afternoon games are more than just a chance to throw the ball around; competition in interhall matches is often surprisingly good. O’Brien said his team’s intensity is one of the keys to its success, and something he hopes to carry forward into this season. “We had a great group of upperclassmen who have helped us since I was a freshman,” he said.Stanford junior Peter Ryan, who scored the decisive touchdown in last year’s final, and again this weekend against Keenan, is “probably the most dangerous wide receiver in the league,” O’Brien said. Every Sunday, all-star athletes take the field alongside other determined players to compete for their dorms.“Winning an interhall football championship is one of the best moments of your life,” O’Brien said. “But even making it to the finals is quite an achievement. Each championship game is played in the Notre Dame Stadium in front of hundreds of fans, making it an unforgettable experience.”Senior Michele Pennala is the captain of Breen-Phillips’ flag-football team this year and said the sport is just as much about dorm participation as it is about competition.“It’s one of the ways to get more involved with community and I think BP also had a really fun tradition when we were coming in as freshman, making it seem like it was a fun experience and you get to be more active with the dorm,” Pennala said. “And then it just transitioned to be a bonding experience with various classes. It also just releases that competitive side that a lot of people had in high school and that they might not be able to embrace in college by not playing a competitive sport.”Pennala said the team is usually comprised of 15 to 20 girls and last year Breen-Phillips made it to the semi-finals, winning their first playoff game, but then losing their second.“The best part is when someone got an interception or had an amazing run play,” she said. “Not only would the players on the field, but also the people on the sideline and the coaches would just start screaming and flailing their arms and just going crazy. That’s always an electrifying feeling.”Pennala said not everyone on the team had played flag football before, but that some players were looking to try something new.“It’s actually a really big mix, some people haven’t played flag football before or maybe they signed up for a powder-puff game in high school,” she said. “People just wanna go out there and be a part of the dorm.“Everyone just gets a chance to participate and it makes it that much more exciting to have that opportunity to discover a different side of themselves.”Finalists get a small taste of what the Fighting Irish players feel every week as they step out onto the field, as all four of last year’s competitors battled strong winds and temperatures in the mid-thirties. The challenging conditions did nothing to dampen the players’ excitement, though, and O’Brien recalls a moment when, “just around dusk, the lights came on and flooded the field.” This year is O’Brien’s final season of interhall football and he said he looks back on his interhall memories fondly.“I genuinely feel like I’ve been living on borrowed time, to have the opportunity to put on a pair of shoulder pads and play a game of competitive football every week,”O’Brien said. “Of all the traditions we have here at Notre Dame, when I look back on my college experience I can honestly say that I couldn’t have gotten this anywhere else.”Tags: dorm life, football, Interhall Footballlast_img

Planting for Drought Tolerance

first_imgWhile Georgia is not currently experiencing drought conditions, it still makes good environmental sense to select drought-tolerant larger shrubs as the cornerstones of your landscape design. University of Georgia horticulturist John Ruter, who directs the UGA Trial Gardens, has been breeding and cultivating plants for dry Georgia gardens for decades. He recommends Georgia gardeners consider conifers when they’re looking to add a drought-tolerant sense of heft to their landscapes. “Many conifers are naturally adapted to seasonal droughts or have evolved in areas where dry seasons regularly occur or rainfall is limited in general,” Ruter said. “They often have unique morphological characteristics such as needles, which help them conserve water from being lost from the foliage.” One new conifer variety that Ruter bred himself at UGA — a drought-tolerant bottlebrush bush called “Scarlet Torch” — recently made “Today’s Garden Center’s” list of new drought-tolerant plants for summer 2014. “This new drought-tolerant variety has the largest bright red flowers we’ve seen on any bottlebrush and is irresistible to hummingbirds,” noted the magazine. If a bottlebrush bush won’t work in your garden, Ruter has several other drought-tolerant selections that have proven themselves tough enough to stand up to Georgia summers. His list includes the following shrubs: Calocedrus decurrens – California Incense Cedar: native to California and Nevada, this wonderfully fragrant conifer comes from areas that receive lots of snowfall, but very little rain. It is best used as an upright growing tree in the northern half of Georgia. Cedrus atlantica – Atlas Cedar: native to Eurasia, this needled conifer is best used in the upper south. Slow growing but worth the effort. The cultivar ‘Glauca Pendula’ has blue foliage and a wonderful weeping habit. Cedrus deodara – Deodar Cedar: native to the Himalayan regions of southeast Asia, numerous selections of this plant are available. It grows upright and spreading with blue or gold foliage. ‘Gold Cone’ is Ruter’s personal favorite. Cunninghamia lanceolata – China Fir: relatively common on older home sites in the South, this plant is fast growing, large and comes with green or blue foliage. It develops a large multitrunk tree with time. Try ‘Chason’s Gift’ or ‘Samurai.’Cupressus arizonica var. glabra – Arizona Cypress: becoming more popular in the landscape, this plant grows in the mountains of Arizona where it receives monsoonal rain showers in the summer. ‘Chaparral’ and ‘Limelight’ are two popular cultivars.Cupressus sempervirens – Italian Cypress: the pencil of the conifer world, this plant is known for its very upright growth habit. It performs best on drier sites where temperatures don’t drop below 5 degrees F.Juniperus chinensis – Chinese Juniper: this very tough plant comes in a variety of growth habits (upright and spreading) and a variety of foliage colors (green, yellow, and blue). It’s very drought tolerant when established.Juniperus conferta – Shore Juniper: grows along the sandy beaches of Japan. It’s an excellent ground cover for well-drained slopes or beachside locations. ‘All Gold” and ‘Silver Spreader’ are two great cultivars.Juniperus horizontalis – Creeping Juniper: is the prototype ground cover conifer for use in landscape. It usually has a very prostrate growth habit and requires low to no maintenance.Pinus palustris – Longleaf Pine: a long-needled pine native to the southeastern United States, this tree performs well in most of Georgia, except the high mountains. The juvenile or “grass stage” can be used in large containers.

Comeback kid Hollie wins Scottish title by three

first_img Teenage international Hollie Muse shot nine-under par to win the Scottish U16 girls’ open championship – and proved herself a real comeback kid. Last summer she appeared odds-on to win the English U15 title, only to lose after a last-hole reversal. The experience was on her mind as she approached the 36-hole Scottish stroke play at Strathmore, but this time there were no setbacks. The 15-year-old from West Lancashire announced her intentions with a course record of seven-under-par 65 in the first round and followed up with a two-under 70 today. It gave her a three-stroke win over Scotland’s Shannon McWilliam, while England’s Emily Price took third place on two-under. Her success crowned a great day for England. Muse, together with Price, the English U15 champion from Cleobury Mortimer, and Martha Lewis (St George’s Hill), won the team event, beating Scotland by a shot.   Third place went to England’s Team B of Chloe Howard (Elfordleigh), Natasha Slater (Furness) and Bel Wardle (Prestbury). What’s more, the top 15 on the leaderboard included 10 English players.  Afterwards Muse (image courtesy SLGA) commented: “I can’t believe it. I’m so happy I started crying! After the U15s and what happened there I am just so happy to win the Scottish. It ruined me at the time, but I picked myself up and came here and it’s amazing to have shot the scores I did.” She went on: “I think I have learned. I played the course, not the other players, and I told myself I was just having a knock with my friends. That really helped, it was a good way to do it.” She was strongly challenged for the title. McWilliam was three behind after the first round, but played her first nine holes today in four under and had narrowed the gap to one shot after 27 holes. However, Muse played her back nine in level par, while the Scottish player was two-over. Muse is a prodigious hitter and her length off the tee was one of her advantages. In the first round she drove the par four 16th and over the two rounds she was seven-under for the par fives. She also performed well on the greens, using a new putter which she acquired only five days ago. It let her down just once, on her second hole of today’s round, but the double bogey was sandwiched between two birdies. Altogether she had 11 birdies and an eagle over the 36 holes.  England Golf girls’ coach Scott Godfrey commented: “Hollie is a stand-out player and her first round was real class. She was a little bit nervous today but she handled it really well.” Muse is the fifth English player to win this title in six years, following Alice Hewson in 2013, Gabriella Cowley, Emily Taylor and Bronte Law.  She is also a past winner of the English U13 championship and last year helped England to win both the girls’ and ladies’ Home Internationals.

‘Stranger danger’ – Donegal Gardaí warn parents over personalised school items

first_imgGardaí in Donegal have issued a warning to parents not to add their children’s names to their school bags as they prepare to go back to school in September. The warning comes following a new initiative by Donegal gardaí, ‘Stranger danger’, warning parents that their child could ‘automatically presume that anyone who knows their name is not a stranger’.A spokesperson for An Garda Síochána in Donegal said: “That time of year is upon us all again and we are out buying bits and pieces for back to school in September. “When buying a school bag for your child please do not have any personalisations added with their name visible.“A child will automatically presume that anyone who knows their name is not a stranger.“There are so many choices out there from personalised pencil cases to stickers for books with the child’s name added and that is fine as they won’t be seen when the child is travelling to and from school.”‘Stranger danger’ – Donegal Gardaí warn parents over personalised school items was last modified: August 7th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img

What Will Wikipedia Look Like in Another 10 Years?

first_imgTags:#news#NYT#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts center_img This weekend, everyone’s favorite massively-collaborative online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, will celebrate its 10th anniversary. Wednesday morning, we got on the phone with Wikipedia founder Jimmy  Wales and Wikimedia Foundation executive director Sue Gardner to find out about the site’s past and, more importantly, its future.While the site’s meager origins are retold with anecdotes of entries like “Astronomer,” which first read “Scientist whose area of Research is Astronomy,” we expect a lot more from the online destination that now enjoys in excess of 400 million unique visits every month.Humble BeginningsWales recalls getting the site going with a common tradition among programmers – the “hello world”. “It’s hard to imagine that it’s been 10 years since I first edited Wikipedia,” said Wales. “I remember that first day. I clicked on ‘Edit’ and I wrote ‘Hello World’, and that was the beginning of Wikipedia and all the things that have come since then.”Since its humble beginnings, Wikipedia has become a dominant force on the Web. With 17 million articles in 270 languages, Wikipedia has grown to be the fifth most popular website in the world and almost half a billion people visiting it each month. But where will it go next?My Advice? Diversify“The most important thing,” Wales told us on a press call today, “is the increased diversity in languages.” According to Wales, around 30% of Wikipedia articles had been in English and already that number has dropped to 20%. “We’re going to see very very large projects in languages where we’ve never seen such things before,” he explained.To that end, of course, Wikipedia has plans to move from its rather homogenous editor user base (which it staunchly defends as a group of dedicated and loyal users) to one not quite so young and male. It also wants to become more global, says spokesman Jay Walsh.“We all see a Wikipedia in 10 years where the imbalance of global north/global south representation is equalized.  We expect to see avid and active use of Wikipedia in southeast Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and South America,” said Walsh. Beyond user diversity, Walsh explained that Wikipedia hopes to expand in a number of ways.“We aim for more global chapters, more robust global partnerships with major academic centers, libraries, galleries and museums, and hopefully much more presence in the emerging mobile space, and availability of off-line formats of Wikipedia for those parts of the world where, even in 10 years perhaps, regular internet access is difficult to achieve,” he said.Use It Or Lose ItIn terms of usability and how the site looks, Wales said they hope to improve usability to make it much more intuitive, something that should also help to lure in a more diverse set of users and editors.On the same hand, he said, “we’re not going to become Facebook, we’re not going to become MySpace or YouTube. The core of what we do is already quite usable.”Walsh agreed that, while social features would become increasingly important, it wouldn’t be in the same context as most other sites. “We do want to explore better social functionality inside of the project, but more so to help editors collaborate – target articles that need attention, meet in real-time on Wikipedia instead of using third party systems like IRC,” said Walsh. “Those tools are more about work than general social sharing amongst users – but I anticipate the readers will also see a rise in the availability of tools that let them share knowledge more powerfully amongst their groups – and repurpose for off-line reading.”Overall, usability and interface were definitely on the list of upcoming improvements said Walsh, with a goal of having simpler editing options. “I think we’ll see significant user interface enhancements, though I won’t go too far into the crystal ball. Wikipedians like to keep things functional, simple, and very adjustable and configurable,” he said. “I anticipate the readers will also see a rise in the availability of tools that let them share knowledge more powerfully amongst their groups – and repurpose for off-line reading.”What do you think? Will we continue to see an ad-free, donation-supported Wikipedia well into 2020, or will it grow too big to support itself this way? Will social voting schemes come to Wikipedia or will it continue to simply be run in long, winding debates in virtual backrooms? Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting mike melansonlast_img
