Walk-on White receives NCAA waiver, will be eligible to play against Holy Cross

first_img Published on November 28, 2014 at 6:03 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Syracuse walk-on guard Christian White has received a transfer waiver from the NCAA and will dress for Friday night’s game against Holy Cross, SU Athletics announced via Twitter on Monday afternoon. He’ll be eligible for the entire season, SU Athletics confirmed.SU Athletics spokesman Pete Moore did not know the exact type of waiver, but said it is likely related to White being from the Rochester, New York area. The NCAA will sometimes permit waivers to player who transfer closer to home, Moore said.The 5-foot-10, 180-pound junior point guard was originally ruled ineligible for the 2014-15 season due to NCAA transfer rules after coming to Syracuse from Monmouth. Four walk-ons joined SU before the season started, but head coach Jim Boeheim said before the season that White would be the most likely to play out of the group if eligible.“I think if Christian was not sitting out, he would probably have the best chance to play,” Boeheim said at Syracuse’s media day on Oct. 17. “He’s played in college, he’s a point guard and he’s a pretty good point guard but he’s sitting out this year.“If he wasn’t, I think he’d get an opportunity probably this year to play.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhite has been participating in practice as SU currently has only one true point guard in freshman Kaleb Joseph and junior forward Michael Gbinije has played sparingly at the position.Asst. sports editor Phil D’Abbraccio, [email protected], contributed reporting to this article.

‘The Bull’ Backs Unsworth For Everton Job

first_imgFormer Everton forward Daniel ‘The Bull’ Amokachi has backed former teammate David Unsworth for the vacant managerial post at the club.The Merseyside club sacked Ronald Koeman on Monday after a wretched start to the season prompting the club to put the club’s u23 manager, David Unsworth in temporary charge.In a chat with BBC World Service, former Super Eagles player and coach Amokachi drummed up support for his firmer teammate. He said:“He is somebody who is willing to die for the team.”“Once a blue, always a blue.“I would love to see him appointed. He has all the qualities to take Everton to the next level.” he added.Speaking further, Amokachi said:“There is always a first step that you take to become great.”“And he made that first step with the Under-23s.“He’s shown all the Evertonians he’s capable of bringing the best out of football players. I was back at Goodison Park three weeks ago and I saw how respected he is by all Evertonians.“We’ve seen in France, in Spain, where youth coaches came on board and did a great job. Why not Everton?“Give him a chance. You don’t need to bring somebody in and spend a fortune when you have somebody who can bring the best out of the players. Some fans want a high-profile coach but if you have somebody who can do the job, why not stick with him?” he concluded.Daniel Amokachi and David Unsworth played their part for Everton during the club’s last title win, the 1995 English FA Cup.Relatedlast_img read more

SEARCH Presents US$2000 To Saah Joseph’s Ebola Fight

first_imgAs part of her humanitarian contributions to contain the spread of the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD), authorities  of the Special Emergency Activity to Restore Children’s Hope (SEARCH) yesterday presented a cash contribution of US$2000 to Montserrado Electoral District #13 Representative, Saah Joseph.The amount, according to SEARCH executive director Sondah Geepea-Wilson, is to help Rep. Joseph in his fight against the EVD through the provision of his personal ambulance service.Rep. Saah’s ambulance service transports persons within Montserrado County, who might show signs of Ebola, to isolation and treatment centers within the county.SEARCH, she said, received the money it presented to the Montserrado Lawmaker from her donor, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), to enhance Rep. Joseph’s capacity to run the ambulance service in this critical period.“We are honored by what you are doing with your ambulance service by transporting those being afflicted by Ebola to the various treatment units. We don’t have enough money to help you in the fight, but little is enough when God is in it,” Mrs. Wilson told Rep. Joseph as she presented the US$2000 cheque to the lawmaker on behalf of her staff. He could use the money either for fuel or to increase whatever given to his co-workers in the fight against the EVD.SEARCH is a locally based non-governmental organization (NGO) engaged in the provision of protection and welfare services, including health and medical, to Ivorian and Sierra Leonean refugees otherwise referred to as “persons of concern.”Receiving the cheque, Rep. Joseph expressed gratitude to SEARCH leadership for the empowerment, and promised to remain committed, because it is based on the fight to contain Ebola that he announced the arrival four new ambulances valued at US$40,000.“Our services look expensive, but it is the contrary since we have directed our efforts to save the lives of our people. Our goal is for every Liberian to have access to quality health services, whether Ebola exists here or not,” Rep. Joseph assured.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Eskom gets $365m clean energy loan

first_imgIt is expected that the project will lay the foundation for a future fleet of power plants by demonstrating solar field and power plant technology. Emission savings are estimated at about 5-million tons of CO2 equivalent – over a 20-year life span – for the Sere wind power project and 9-million tons for the Upington solar power plant. Diversifying energy mix 7 June 2011 “Eskom is committed to reducing its carbon footprint,” Eskom CEO Brian Dames told BuaNews this week. “This is an exciting time in the company’s history with its first large-scale introduction of two critically important renewable energy projects in its fleet.” The loan, which was concluded under the South African Government Guarantee for Eskom’s debt, is for 40 years. Currently, South Africa generates barely 22MW in wind power and has no grid connected solar power generation capacity. While it is more expensive to generate power from renewables than from coal-fired production, the goal is to decrease their marginal cost over time. Apart from providing financing, AfDB will also transfer critical knowledge of how to design and manage wind and solar energy projects to South African experts, enabling the country to take a major step towards an economy powered by cleaner energy. According to a statement by the African Development Bank (AfDB) this week, the financial package includes $265-million from the bank’s own reserves, as well as a $100-million concessional loan from the Clean Technology Fund. Carbon emissions savingscenter_img Catalyst for larger scale delivery According to the AfDB, about 90% of electrical energy produced in the country in 2010, was derived from fossil fuels, emitting approximately 224.7-million tons of CO2, and making the South African economy one of the most carbon-intensive in the world. “In addition to the tremendous environmental benefits, the project will have a positive impact on job creation,” the AfDB said. The funds will allow Eskom to implement its $1.3-billion renewable energy programme that includes a 100MW concentrated solar power plant at Upington in the Northern Cape and a 100MW wind farm near Koekenaap in the Western Cape. These projects respond directly to South Africa’s need for more energy and to diversify its energy mix, gradually increasing the weight of clean energy to 42% by 2030 as anticipated in South Africa’s Integrated Resource Plan, released earlier this year. “The two initiatives are the first of their kind in a region where they are seen as a test case and catalyst for larger-scale delivery of power using renewable technologies to displace considerable future CO2 emissions,” Hela Cheikhrouhou, director of the AfDB’s energy, environment and climate change department, said in a statement this week. South African state company Eskom has secured a US$365-million (about R2.46-billion) loan from the African Development Bank to fund construction of a concentrated solar power plant at Upington in the Northern Cape and a wind farm near Koekenaap in the Western Cape.

NPPC wins HSUS case

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled in favor of the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) in its appeal to dismiss a lawsuit brought by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). The court rejected HSUS’s attempt to advance an anti-meat activist agenda through an unwarranted suit designed to hurt 60,000 U.S. pork producers and undermine a farm sector critical to rural communities and that employs hundreds of thousands of Americans.The court rejected HSUS’ attempted challenge to the National Pork Board’s 2006 federally approved purchase from NPPC of trademarks associated with the organization’s “Pork: The Other White Meat” campaign and payments associated with the agreement. While HSUS claimed it and others were injured because proceeds from the transaction were misappropriated by the National Pork Board, the pork “checkoff,” the D.C. Circuit found that HSUS and its fellow plaintiffs failed to demonstrate that they had suffered harm from the transaction, including the associated payments.“The dismissal of this case is a win for American pork producers who depend on NPPC’s issues advocacy work and the research, education and promotional work performed by the National Pork Board,” said David Herring, a pork producer from Lillington, NC and NPPC’s president. “The real misappropriation of funds is HSUS’s continued efforts to fundraise under false pretenses while using its proceeds to attack farmers dedicated to feeding billions of people at home and abroad.”last_img read more

Total Force Fitness and Military Families Learning Network: Personal Finance

first_imgIn this week’s Friday Field Notes, we will begin our exploration of the resources and programming that Military Families Learning Network provides to support Total Force Fitness with our Personal Finance team.Personal Finance and Total Force FitnessWhile financial fitness is not one of the eight core domains of Total Force Fitness, personal finances can affect all eight domains. For example, it can be difficult for service members to maintain social fitness if they argue frequently with their spouse about finances. Therefore, you will find plenty of resources from Personal Finance to support many of the Total Force Fitness Domains.Social Fitness: Personal Finance’s Family Finance Series provides information and strategies for meeting the financial needs that accompany changes in relationships (e.g., the birth of a child or divorce) that occur over one’s lifespan. Being prepared to meet these changes financially can help service members and their families focus on their relationships with loved ones to support social fitness.Medical and Dental, Nutritional, and Physical Fitness:  While finances are not usually one of the first things that people think about when they hear physical health, finances and health are strongly tied and being prepared financially can support all areas of physical health and fitness. Personal Finance’s upcoming webinar, The Relationship Between Health and Finances, explores the interconnectedness of personal finance and health. One of the key ways that health and finances are interconnected is the cost of insurance. With Personal Finance’s Insurance Principles and Resources: What Financial Educators Need to Know webinar, you can learn about insurance basics, including ways to determine the coverage that is right for you. For additional information and resources, check out Small Steps to Health and Wealth, a program designed to build good habits that support both physical and financial health, created by Personal Finance team member, Dr. Barbara O’Neill.Behavioral Fitness: Risky health behaviors can often put service members and their families at risk financially. Personal Finances upcoming webinar, Gambling Disorders: Special Considerations for Service Members, explores research on the risk factors of gambling disorders as well as resources available to service members who are currently struggling with a gambling disorder.These are just a few of the resources available through the Personal Finance team that supports Total Force Fitness. To learn more about the professional development opportunities offered by Personal Finance, check out their team page.Additional Resources from Personal FinanceThe Personal Finance team provides professional development opportunities for Personal Financial Managers who support service members and their families through financial counseling and education. However, Personal Finance’s programming is easily accessible to everyone looking to improve their own finances and financial literacy. You can take advantage of their programming by joining a webinar, downloading a podcast, or joining the mailing list to get updates on timely blog posts.last_img read more
