AVB: Bale to miss season opener

first_img The Welshman’s future has been the subject of much speculation throughout the summer, with Bale closely linked with a world record move to Real Madrid. The 24-year-old sat out Wales’ goalless draw against the Republic of Ireland on Wednesday night with a foot injury and manager Chris Coleman admitted questions over Bale’s future had dominated the build-up to the game. Spurs open their new campaign at newly promoted Crystal Palace on Sunday before they take on Dinamo Tbilisi in the Europa League the following Thursday. When asked if Bale would feature at Selhurst Park on Sunday, Villas-Boas told Sky Sports News: “No, because he’s been out injured for most of pre-season. “He was involved in the games against Brentford and Swindon but not any others, for different reasons; he pulled a muscle in his gluteus that prevented him from being involved for two weeks and he’s been complaining of pain in the foot. “I think the most natural thing is to see him not involved against Palace.” Real have maintained a constant public campaign to try to woo Bale this summer, with a number of senior players admitting they would love the Tottenham forward to join them at the Bernabeu. Tottenham and Real have yet to come to an agreement over the transfer of Bale despite weeks of speculation that the 24-year-old is set to move to the nine-time European champions. Bale has reportedly made it clear he wants to leave Spurs for the Spanish capital, but chairman Daniel Levy is said to be demanding a fee in excess of the £80million that Real paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo four years ago. The saga is set to continue with the transfer window open until Monday, September 2. Gareth Bale will not be involved in Tottenham’s start to the Premier League season, manager Andre Villas-Boas has announced.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Progress made in clinician hiring, mental health outreach

first_imgAfter battling the usual institutional and bureaucratic obstacles that can impede progress, construction on the fifth floor of Engemann, a year in the making, finished early and is now home to 18 clinicians. This hiring, along with the addition of 30 more clinicians in Student Health, brings a total of 85 full-time clinicians who are available and dedicated to the care of USC students.  If students need greater care than what is provided by these embedded counselors, Greco referred them to clinical services on a short-term or group-setting basis, setting them up with psychiatric services within the USC system or in the community. For groups of students that are seeing greater separation from the campus, including international students, there are specific “Let’s Talk” workshops with times earlier and later in the day and those conducted in languages other than English to meet these needs.  Leading up to the opening of the USC Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Sciences floor in the Engemann Student Health Center in November, concerns relating to student deaths, the diversity of clinician staff and the greater mental well-being of the community were continually raised in forums with student leaders and administrators.  Kelly Greco, assistant director of Outreach and Prevention Services and clinical associate professor and faculty of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, has overseen the project on advancing outreach services to meet the needs of communities on campus rather than in their individual members. Through embedded counselors introduced this year in academic departments like the School of Cinematic Arts and the Gould School of Law, and in cultural centers like La CASA and the Center for Black Cultural and Student Affairs, these clinicians dedicate part of their week to offer their skills to the communities they serve and provide resources on coping with Zoom fatigue or seeing peers ignore public health guidelines. When USC Student Health was brought into the greater Keck School of Medicine system in 2017, 37 clinicians across the University Park and Health Sciences campuses were available as providers for more than 45,600 students.  “I can’t impress upon you how extraordinary this is, from an institutional perspective,” Siegel said in a student media briefing. “I don’t know of any other place in the country that has put that kind of resources and support, let alone one that has been willing to nest it in the Department of Psychiatry and say, ‘This is so important to us that we’re not going to have it be separate. We’re not going to have it be outside the health system. We’re actually going to bring Student Health and a full dedicated practice for students in the department so that students have unfettered access to the highest quality care.’” The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Sciences, led by professor and chair Dr. Steven Siegel, continually advocated for a way to refer students to long-term care without sending them through a maze of community providers and insurance guidelines, which is the national standard for student care at the university level.  “I expect moving forward, this is going to be a very, very different experience for USC students than has ever been possible before,” Siegel said. Currently with 85 full-time clinicians, the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Sciences and USC Student Health look to continue to work to meet the needs of community members through advancing outreach methods. (Sarah Cortina | Daily Trojan)center_img “So we look at how we can go out into the community and reach individuals, especially, you know, in terms of addressing prevention, on decreasing the barriers, on decreasing the stigma, on increasing accessibility and just helping educate the community about resources, but also life skills,” Greco said. “And how do I cope with stress? How do I cope with COVID? How do I cope with the social political climate? Being online? Right, so we know there’s so many challenges right now that we’re all facing as a community.” The changes come after students have noted long wait times and a required phone consultation to receive mental health services as barriers to seeking help at Engemann. In the past, students have had to wait several days or weeks in order to schedule an appointment with Student Health for their mental health needs. “We are actually recruiting and hiring therapists who specialize in substance-use disorders,” Siegel said. “We’ve made it our priority. And substance use in particular is going to be a focus of the department. Everything from, you know, media campaigns, how do we get messages out to enhance services available.” While the outlook for mental health treatment may seem grim, with the pandemic increasing loneliness and stress along with instances of anxiety and depression among college students, both Siegel and Greco are confident that the department’s hiring process, which is still actively continuing, will equip the University with the resources it needs to better support its students. One issue in particular that is labeled as a top priority of the department, along with the burgeoning USC Institute for Addiction Science and the Haven, is substance abuse. This focus is not just following the concerns of past drug-related deaths of students, but the increasing use of substances to cope with coronavirus-related fallout.  With the 2020-21 school year starting in mid-August, the two practices saw almost 1,800 student visits in the month. According to Siegel, there are currently no wait times at either practice for individuals seeking out care, which has been of paramount importance to the department.  Siegel also stressed the intentionality of the department’s hiring to meet the needs of the diverse student body. Over the past year, they have hired 50 new faculty members, with two-thirds being women, around half being people of color and one third being from marginalized communities, an initiative that he says is about “asking students who they want as much as what they want.”last_img read more

The rayista hobby, an example of solidarity that comes from afar

first_img– ADRV platform (@plataformaADRV) March 29, 2020Rhymes and stanzas that players like Ali, Luna, Trejo, Ángeles, Montiel and Alberto; ex from the Strip like Cota, Antonio and Iván Amaya, Yuma and Natalia; an icon of rayism like Michel; journalists such as Quique Peinado, Carlos Sánchez Blas and Antonio Luquero; singers such as Pulpul (Ska-P), Juankar (Boikot), Kake (Caskarrabias), TaylorChris (Afrojuice) and Fortu (Obús); the historian Juan Jiménez Mancha; the mythical utillero Isi; actors such as Víctor Sevilla and Vicente Gil; as well as dozens of fans and supporters acquaintances and loved ones in the neighborhood. Without forgetting some of the great protagonists, the nurses of the Infanta Leonor. Kas Vallekas video tribute to all the anonymous heroes who are fighting this pandemic. ⚡⚡Only the people save the peoplehttps: //t.co/ty8khQYHt4 The ADRV Platform has been the engine of an idea seconded by anonymous fans of Rayón and Vallecano, as well as by the Rayo and Veterans Association male and female staff. Your message of encouragement does not stop there. He has also captured it in a video. A tribute from Vallecas to all the anonymous heroes who fight against COVID-19. Well-known faces recite a poem in which we walk the corners of the neighborhood, empty, without joy, waiting for the sun to rise again after this terrible storm.There are no more children in the parks, silence rules El Bulevar, the chairs were left without portal gatherings.Uncle Pio’s lawn has not been trodden for a long time, I haven’t heard that old man talk for days, that grandparents don’t go down to buy anymore.My family, my friends, die alone and I can’t even watch them, it’s time to cry alone.Only nurses are heard to scream, Help for Health!I just want to be close to mine, to be able to go outside every day, that my grandmother goes for the bread.For the kisses and the hugs. A smile to wake up, a look to rewind.When time is past and present is no longer. And Vallecas, we will soon enjoy again!From Rayito’s goals to the Naval Battle. From the intricate sandwich to the gypsies sing. Of the statue of the Grandmother, who did not stop rocking.We have already suffered attacks and evictions we stopped. This neighborhood as always will rise again and united, we are going to stop it!The streets will resonate, the ball and the swings and the Albufera, to overflow. Sunsets in the Tits, the Estanquera de Vallekas will not be a memory.Go back to the swamps and rivers to spend the summer, beers in the bars, go for a walk.Time will have stopped, everything will be a bad dream and we will go out to celebrate it, like good Bukaneros!As Second, Let’s go out! And if someone takes my soul, let it be Saint Agnes.Because the day I die, I want to see my drawer, painted red-red, like my heart.Courage, courage and nobility. Now we have to support. Vallekas is not afraid. Vallekas is solidarity. Always at the foot of the canyonHistorically this hobby has always lent a hand in adversity. The defaults threatened the liquidation of Rayo during the last period of the Ruiz Mateos, back in 2011, which meant the sale of the club and the subsequent Bankruptcy. A stage in which the employees of the entity, some entire marriages, were not paid and were immersed in a desperate situation. Hence, the rayistas created a Row 0 to help those workers in distress.They also overturned with the one enabled by Rayo in 2014 to Carmen Martínez Ayuso, a Vallecas neighbor who was 85 at the time and was going to be evicted, and whom technician Paco Jémez has been helping to pay for his apartment for several years. Part of that collection (half, around 10,000 euros) was destined, one year later, for trying to fulfill Wilfred’s last wish, bringing his children from Nigeria. The goalkeeper died without the reunion being able to materialize, but they were able to come to say goodbye to their father.Its causes do not stop there. Since 1997 the Days Against Racism have been organized without interruption, with talks, parties and banners to try to raise awareness in society and thus end this scourge. Symbol precisely of this fight was Wilfred, one of the most beloved and representative players in the Strip. Also his hobby fought for gave a name to a sports center in the neighborhood and got it. That, apart from having his door and mosaic in the Vallecas stadium, which was his home.Two important pillars for fans are coexistence and the transmission of values, the engine of other activities such as the Race and the Rayism Days, where different activities were programmed to get to know the neighborhood and the club better. Furthermore, it is common to see that, from the bottom of Bukaneros, typhoons are displayed against gender violence, evictions … applauded and supported by the entire field. So it can be concluded that this is a combative and supportive hobby. Without a doubt, a different hobby. The fan of the Strip is supportive and, once again, has shown it with facts. Rayism, aware of the needs of the Hospitals of Vallecas in the face of this coronavirus epidemic, decided to mobilize and enable a Row 0 to acquire the necessary sanitary material for the Infanta Leonor and the Virgin of the Tower. Donations amounted to € 40,004.66 and with these funds it will also be possible to help other sectors affected by this crisis, such as shelters and homeless people who spend these days at IFEMA.last_img read more

Stephens creates history by winning Hi-Pro senior title

first_imgTennis history was created at the Eric Bell Tennis Centre last Sunday when 13-year-old Michaela Stephens, a student at Liberty Academy in Kingston, became the youngest player to win the female singles section of a Tennis Jamaica senior All-Jamaica tournament. Stephens defeated 28-year-old Pauline Henry 6-1, 6-1 in the final of the Hi-Pro All-Jamaica Senior Tennis Championships. In the male section, the No. 1 seed, Damion Johnson, who was runner-up last year, defeated Dwayne Pagon 7-6 (7-4), 6-4. Stephens, who will be 14 years old in October and is also the All Jamaica Junior champion, controlled the game from the start and used her superior service to set up winners, while staying aggressive throughout the match. She also adjusted to the windy conditions much faster than her opponent, who served a spate of double faults. Henry, who is an entertainment coordinator at the Holiday Inn Resort and Spa in Montego Bay, had been off the tennis scene for some time. She told The Gleaner that her last tournament was two years ago and she was coaxed into entering this tournament, thus, she was only able to practise for a few weeks. She was disappointed at not taking the top prize, but took consolation in the fact that she had reached the finals, which will encourage her “to return to the game and play as much as my work schedule will allow me”. Stephens’ mother, Jacinth Bryant, toasted her daughter after the victory with a bottle of sparkling grape juice. “I am a happy woman today,” she told The Gleaner. “Michaela works very hard, and it is good to see her achieving this type of success.” In the men’s Class Two, Barry Hazel defeated Leighton Burton 6-2, 6-2 and in Class Three, Sean Martin defeated Marlon Hosang 7-5, 4-6 and 10-6 in the Super tie-breaker. In the men’s doubles, Pagon and Matthew Rodriguez defeated Jeremy Miller and Cliff Dwyer 6-4, 3-2 and in the women’s doubles, Stephens and Jenna Harrison defeated Gina Delisser and Pauline Harrison 10-5.last_img read more
