Nine Premier League clubs to allow stars miss project restart

first_img It is understood that teams from across the table are concerned with player safety and one team has told stars they do not have to play. One club who will be without key players should football return is Aston Villa, with manager Dean Smith explaining it’s down to health concerns. “If they’re not comfortable to return then you have to return without them until it’s safe to do so,” Smith began.“So we have to listen to our players, we have to listen to their concerns. “We’ve got a player who’s asthmatic, we’ve got a player whose mother-in-law is in remission and living with the family. “So you have to be very careful, certainly with the transmission, because this knows no boundaries.” The season will resume with no fans allowed in stadiums and there are a variety of other measures set to be put in place.

Zimbabwe snatch tie after Windies collapse

first_img…Shai Hope hit 101 from 120 balls(REUTERS)- Zimbabwe seamer Donald Tiripano bowled a superb final over to help his side earn a dramatic tie in their Tri-Series one-day international against West Indies in Bulawayo yesterday.The visitors lost three wickets, including two run outs, in a desperate last five balls as Tiripano gave them nothing to hit with a succession of full deliveries that restricted the West Indies to 257 for eight.Captain Jason Holder had the chance to win the game off the final ball but could not make contact and wicketkeeper Peter Moor ran out a charging non-striker Jonathan Carter.Zimbabwe celebrated as if they had won the game and well they might after the visitors had seemed sure of victory.West Indies batsman Shai Hope hit 101 from 120 balls, his maiden ODI ton in his second match, and added 162 for the third wicket with Kraigg Brathwaite (78).When he was dismissed West Indies needed 38 runs from 32 balls with seven wickets remaining, but they could not get over the line due to tight bowling and poor shot selection.Zimbabwe won the toss and made 257 all out in exactly 50 overs.Their innings was built around the third-wicket stand of 144 between Craig Ervine (92) and Pakistan-born Sikandar Raza (77), but petered out as they managed only 67 runs from their final seven wickets in 11.2 overs.With all three sides having played two matches, West Indies head the Tri-Series table with seven points from Sri Lanka (five) and Zimbabwe (two).West Indies take on Sri Lanka in their game next Wednesday at the same venue.B Chari c Holder b C Brathwaite 15C Chibhabha run out 25C Ervine c Powell b Gabriel 92Sikandar Raza c K Brathwaite b C Brathwaite 77S Williams lbw b Nurse 2E Chigumbura c wkp Hope b Holder 8+P Moor c Powell b Holder 6*A Cremer c Gabriel b C Brathwaite 8D Tiripano b Gabriel 14T Chisoro not out 0C Mpofu b C Brathwaite 2Extras (w8) 8TOTAL (all out, 50 overs) 257Fall of wickets: 1-38 (Chibhabha, 11.1 overs), 2-46 (Chari, 13.1), 3-190 (Sikandar Raza, 38.4), 4-197 (Williams, 39.5), 5-218 (Chigumbura, 43.4), 6-228 (Moor, 45.5), 7-233 (Ervine, 46.2), 8-255 (Tiripano, 49), 9-255 (Cremer, 49.3), 10-257 (Mpofu, 50)Bowling: Gabriel 10-0-45-2 (w4), Holder 10-0-47-2 (w1), Benn 8-0-45-0 (w1), C Brathwaite 10-0-48-4, Nurse 10-0-55-1, Carter 2-0-17-0.WEST INDIESJ Charles lbw b Tiripano 19K Brathwaite c Ervine b Williams 78E Lewis c Chibhabha b Cremer 18+S Hope c wkp Moor b Mpofu 101R Powell b Williams 17C Brathwaite c Williams b Tiripano 9*J Holder not out 4A Nurse run out 0J Carter run out 1Extras (b1, lb3, w5, nb1) 10TOTAL (8 wkts, 50 overs) 257Did not bat: S Benn, S GabrielFall of wickets: 1-33 (Charles, 7.3 overs), 2-58 (Lewis, 11.1), 3-220 (Hope, 44.4), 4-234 (K Brathwaite, 47.1), 5-242 (Powell, 47.4), 6-255 (C Brathwaite, 49.2), 7-255 (Nurse, 49.3), 8-257 (Carter, 50)Bowling: Mpofu 10-0-64-1 (w2), Tiripano 6-0-26-2 (w1), Chisoro 10-1-42-0, Cremer 10-0-44-1, Williams 10-0-52-2 (nb1), Sikandar Raza 4-0-25-0.Points: Zimbabwe 2, West Indies 2.Man-of-the-Match: Shai Hope.last_img read more

USC creates new task force to address sexual violence

first_imgThe Office of Equity and Diversity announced the launch of the Sexual Misconduct Prevention Task Force, a group consisting of five committees to address the issue of campus sexual assault and gender violence on Wednesday.New home · The Center for Women and Men plans to relocate to the Engemann Student Health Center (above) in October 2014. – Razan al Marzouqi | Daily TrojanThe launch, announced by email, follows a March letter to the USC community from Ainsley Carry, vice provost for student affairs.“Student safety is our highest priority, and USC wants all members of our community to have an environment free from sexual assault and misconduct,” Carry said in his March 25 letter. “We desire to enhance communication to achieve this priority.”Though it is headed by Jody Shipper, Title IX Coordinator and executive director of the Office of Equity and Diversity and Ekta Kumar, director of the Center for Women and Men, the task force will be mainly student-run. Title IX is a federal provision barring gender discrimination in an education environment.The five committees of the task force are student programming; clinical and advocacy procedures; communications; sexual assault policy; and inclusivity, LGBTQ and gender-based misconduct.Ilene Rosenstein, director of student counseling services, will lead the clinical and advocacy procedures committee; Lynette Merriman, associate provost for support and advocacy, will lead the communications committee; Kelby Harrison, director of the LGBTQ Center, will lead the inclusivity, LGBTQ and gender-based misconduct committee; and Shipper will lead the sexual assault policy committee.Kumar will coordinate the student programming committee in addition to managing the task force as a whole. She said that she has already received over 20 emails expressing interest in the committee, and that other coordinators she has spoken to have received similar levels of student interest.“We’re getting a lot of student interest in it, which is good,” Kumar said.“I think the whole point of the task force is to get students involved in this kind of work, and for their voices to be heard,” Kumar said. “And so that is why we separated it in five areas, to have a comprehensive approach.”Though planning is its early stages, the five committees will collaborate with each other in managing and implementing student-led initiatives.“Everyone who’s leading a committee, all of us will be touching base with one another, so there will be communication with different people who are running the subcommittees,” Kumar said.Last week, USC hosted a national conference of university leaders to discuss issues related to sexual misconduct. Thirty-five universities sent representatives to the conference to discuss issues of prevention, bystander awareness education, education programs and legislation regarding college sexual assaults.Such legislation includes the yes means yes law. California became the first state in the nation this week to institute an affirmative definition of consent. SB 967, popularly known as the yes means yes law, requires that people who engage in sexual activity give affirmative, unambiguous and voluntary consent to sexual acts. All California universities who use financial aid funding from the state must conform to the law.Kumar said input from the conference encouraged the development of the task force.“It reinforced the fact that we’re doing this and helped us recognize that we’re ahead of the wave,” she said.last_img read more
