Urgent Need for Blood in Indiana

first_imgINDIANAPOLIS – As summer starts to wind down, local blood donations tend to slow down, too.Lucy Wehking, corporate communications specialist for the Indiana Blood Center, says the center was unable to fill a few hospital orders this week because of a lower amount of blood donations.She says about one-third of the center’s mobile donations come from education-based drives, so by this time of the summer there typically is a dip in supply.“Until people are really settled into school, we will continue to see that decrease in donations, and we are expecting unfortunately to see it decrease through mid-August.”Wehking says while blood donations are not at critical level at this point, there is still an urgent need for blood.The blood that is collected is distributed to the more than 60 Indiana hospitals served by the center.Wehking adds that while the holidays and summers may come and go, there are patients always in need of transfusions.Donors must be in good health, weigh at least 116 pounds and be age 17 or older – or 16 with parental consent.Wehking says it’s important to call the center if you have questions about your eligibility to donate, especially if you were deferred in the past.“Maybe last time you were deferred for low iron, or you traveled last time to an area that made you ineligible, or even if you were taking a medication, which caused you to be ineligible, a lot of people think that will indefinitely defer them,” she explains. “So we always encourage people do not self-defer.”Whole blood can be donated every 56 days, platelets every seven days.Mary Kuhlmanlast_img read more

Dann the man for Palace

first_img The 26-year-old has been at Ewood Park since 2011 and made 106 appearances, scoring seven goals. Dann has now completed his move to Palace, signing a three-and-a-half year deal with the south Londoners. Crystal Palace have completed the signing of Blackburn defender Scott Dann for an undisclosed fee. Press Associationcenter_img The Eagles announced the centre-back’s arrival on Twitter, while Blackburn released a statement shedding light on the terms of the deal. “Rovers defender Scott Dann has this evening completed a deadline-day move to Crystal Palace,” read the statement on www.rovers.co.uk. “The 26-year-old joins the Barclays Premier League club for an undisclosed fee, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal.” Dann becomes Palace’s third signing of deadline day, following moves for Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey and Jason Puncheon, whose loan from Southampton was made permanent. Blackpool’s Tom Ince and Celtic midfielder Joe Ledley are still on Palace’s radar, while Nurnberg have signed Jose Campana on loan with a view to a permanent move. The Eagles have yet to officially confirm that deal, but did announce the mutual termination of Wales defender Darcy Blake’s contract. last_img read more

Leicester sack director of football

first_img Press Association Sport understands the decision is based purely on footballing reasons. “Leicester City Football Club has terminated the contract of its director of football, Terry Robinson,” said a statement from the Barclays Premier League club. Leicester have sacked director of football Terry Robinson, but manager Nigel Pearson still retains the faith of the club despite a slump in results. “He departs with immediate effect and with the best wishes of everyone at the football club. “Current academy director Jon Rudkin will assume the responsibilities of director of football. “Jon has been with Leicester City Football Club for 16 years, has headed the club’s academy – recently awarded the Elite Player Performance Plan’s category one status – since 2003 and has an excellent understanding of the club’s footballing philosophy and values. “The owners, directors, management and staff at Leicester City would like to place on record our collective thanks to Terry for his work and contribution, and wish him well in the future.” Robinson was appointed by the Foxes in July last year with a remit “to provide strategic input to the club’s football operations at all levels, driving the consistent implementation of the club’s football philosophy”. The club signed 10 players in the summer transfer window but only three – Esteban Cambiasso, Danny Simpson and Ben Hamer – started Saturday’s defeat to Manchester City, and Hamer was only in the side because of injury to Kasper Schmeichel. Leicester have not won since beating Manchester United on September 21 and have lost eight of the last nine matches as they plummeted to the bottom of the Premier League. However, despite that alarming downward spiral it is understood Pearson’s job is not in any immediate danger. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Local Colleges Receive Hundreds of Millions in COVID-19 Relief Aid

first_imgLocal college students who have been struggling to pay their bills and keep up their studies during the pandemic are getting some help from the federal government.The coronavirus relief act, or CARES Act, passed by Congress is providing hundreds of millions of dollars to local institutions, including public and private universities, community colleges and for-profit institutions.Among the local schools receiving money: Miami Dade College ($49 million), Florida International University ($38 million), Broward College ($27 million), Florida Atlantic University ($22 million), Keiser University ($21.2 million), Palm Beach State College ($18.9 million), University of Miami ($8 million) and Nova Southeastern University ($7.2 million).At least half of each school’s money is required to go toward emergency cash grants for students.The law requires recipients to already be receiving some form of federal aid, such as a Pell Grant, which goes to low-income students, or federally backed student loans, which have no income restrictions.Officials from several institutions say they are still working on exact eligibility requirements for the new money.Starting today, PBSC will begin accepting applications and distributing more than $9.4 million in emergency cash grants directly to students whose lives and education have been impacted by the #coronavirus #pandemic. Learn more in the #PBSCNews Center. https://t.co/6RE9w8X0kJ— Palm Beach State (@PBStateCollege) May 1, 2020 Arthur Keiser, chancellor and CEO of Fort Lauderdale-based Keiser University, says, “We’re trying to make sure all students are covered.”Keiser must allocate at least $10.6 million of its funding to student aid, which “sounds like a lot, but it doesn’t go very far. We have almost 20,000 students,” adds the chancellor.While several other South Florida’s universities, including FAU and NSU, are still developing their plans for distributing money, FIU began accepting applications April 24. The university has received more than 3,200 applications and funded $2.5 million in requests, according to FIU spokeswoman Maydel Santana.Additionally, about half of the federal money can be used to offset expenses or losses for the institutions. FIU has calculated its losses at $6.2 million for spring, including refunds for housing and meals, protective equipment, cleaning and sanitizing, and new software. The expenses and losses are expected to be about $11 million for the summer term. “The longer this goes on, of course, the larger the shortfall,” Santana explains.Keiser said there could be new expenses if students return in the fall, as schools determine how to keep students and faculty safe. That could involve having fewer students in each classroom where everyone must wear masks and gloves. Each residential student could also be placed in a private dorm room, rather than sharing with a roommate.“Our plan is to be back to school in the fall, following whatever rules we’re given,” Arthur Keiser notes.last_img read more

Ramraj’s 5 for 34 helps Select U-17s restrict Demerara to 169

first_imgBy Michelangelo JacobusTHE Select U-17 team continued their good showing so far in the Hand-in-Hand (HIH) U-19 3-day Inter-County tournament when round two began yesterday at the GCC ground, Bourda.They put themselves in a strong position thanks to left-arm leg-spinner Chandrapaul Ramraj’s five for 34 which helped restrict Demerara to 169 despite Robin Williams’ half-century. At stumps they were on 17 for the loss of one wicket trailing by 152 runs.Under overcast conditions, the U-17s won the toss and sent Demerara in to bat. The latter received a solid start from their openers with the belligerent Sachin Singh making 23 before he became Ramraj’s first victim. However, his partner Robin Williams held his end and went on to stroke 54 (107 deliveries) which included four boundaries and a maximum before he was dismissed by Matthew Nandu.None of the other Demerara batsmen managed to string together partnerships despite getting starts. Round one hero with the ball, Joel Spooner, managed 27 while Pradesh Balkissoon made 21 to help Demerara to a respectable total.Ramraj was well supported by Nandu; the former cleaned up Demerara’s tail-end and ended with figures of 5 for 34 from 15 overs (four maidens) while Nandu snared 3 for 49 from 19 overs (four maidens). Niran Bissu and Andre Seepersaud took a wicket apiece.Taking strike, Select U-17 lost opener Rampertaub Ramnauth early for just one run. However Zeynul Ramsammy played some attractive shots to end the day unbeaten on 10 while Nandu was on six. The lone wicket was taken by Demerara’s Dequan Bamfield.last_img read more

La Liga: Barcelona Set New Unbeaten Record

first_imgBarcelona set a new La Liga record as a narrow win over Valencia extended their unbeaten league run to 39 matches. The leaders, fresh from a shock Champions League exit to Roma, led when Philippe Coutinho played in Luis Suarez to beat Neto at his near post. They looked comfortable when Samuel Umtiti headed in Coutinho’s corner.But the visitors gave them a late scare when Dani Parejo’s penalty squirmed underneath Marc-Andre ter Stegen after Ousmane Dembele fouled Andreas Pereira. Ter Stegen was at the centre of the game’s other dramatic moment – when he gifted the ball to Valencia’s Carlos Soler but then brilliantly saved Rodrigo’s shot onto the crossbar.Barca, who are now six results from the first unbeaten 38-game La Liga season, only need seven more points to seal the Spanish title. They face Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final next weekend as they seek a domestic double. The previous unbeaten La Liga record was Real Sociedad’s 38 across 1978-79 and 1979-80.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Young Turks films live on campus, discusses election

first_imgThe online, progressive-leaning show The Young Turks premiered live on the TV channel Fusion at Wallis Annenberg Hall on Monday.The show kicked off its live 12-week college tour at USC. It accompanies a weekly show in which the hosts discuss political issues and world events.The live show featured a panel, which included hosts Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola, the show’s creator Cenk Uygur and Nando Vila, the vice president of programming at Fusion and a commentator on the show. The panelists discussed current issues such as the legalization of marijuana, climate change and college tuition with a live audience composed of USC students.Olivia Deveau, a freshman majoring in journalism, said that she wished there was more female representation on the panel. However, she appreciated the point of view that the lone female panelist, Kasparian, offered.“I don’t necessarily agree with [Kasparian] because of her past opinions,” Deveau said. “[But] it was nice to hear her say some things that I really do agree with and hear her advocate for the millennials.”The panel also focused on the importance of young voters in the next election, who Kasparian said should not be underestimated. “When you hear about young people in the news, it is typically negative,” Kasparian said. “They’re not lazy, they’re the most educated generation. A lot of the criticisms are unfair.”While all the panelists agreed that millennials will be a deciding factor in the election, Uygur said that calling millennials “smarter than their parents” on TV is “toxic” for older television viewers.“They can swing an election if they get active. As progressive as millennials are, watch out — -we could make a tremendous difference,” Uygur said. Uygur and Iadarola agreed on the influence young people have on the election. Iadarola explained that The Young Turks has been influencing the media with what the show is doing online. On YouTube, the show dubs itself “The Largest Online News Show in the World.”“We feel that we can take what makes TYT different and superior and try to spread it,” Iadarola said. “It will make us better and other media better.”Though the show is followed by a wide array of students for its progressive ideals and leanings toward Bernie Sanders, members of the Armenian community have been against the show’s title, which Armenian Students’ Association member Syunik Zohrabyan called “inflammatory.”Zohrabyan explained that a political group in the Ottoman Empire called the “Young Turks” implemented the systematic genocide of the Ottoman Armenians and other ethnic groups of the empire in 1915.“What if this was instead the ‘The Neo-Nazis’ or ‘The KKK’ coming to speak and broadcast live from Annenberg to discuss global climate change?” Zohrabyan said. “For USC to give a platform to an organization that glorifies a government killing its own people is degrading to this University’s reputation.”Uygur explained that the show’s name “has nothing to do” with the historical reference.“Young Turks means young progressives looking to overthrow the established system,” Uygur said. “There’s a common English definition of that phrase, and that’s what we’re going for.”Matthew Yeh, a senior majoring in business, said he has been following the show for more than five years, and felt “starstruck” seeing the journalists he loves.“Unlike mainstream media, they are very honest and talk about things that aren’t usually talked about,” Yeh said. “They aren’t afraid of taking the position that not a lot of people agree with.”Despite his following of the show and interest in topics they cover, Yeh said he is not sure if he will cast his vote in the upcoming election in November.“I’m not well-versed, so I don’t want to make an uneducated vote, but it seems to me that one vote won’t make a difference,” Yeh said. “But the show explained that millennials being involved in the elections is crucial to make change.”The Young Turks will continue to tape their show from different universities across the country for the next 11 weeks. The show will broadcast from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. next Monday.last_img read more
