first_imgLocalNews Saturday NOT a public holiday by: – December 2, 2011 Tweet 7 Views   no discussions Share Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! Share Cabinet Secretary Felix Gregoire Cabinet Secretary Felix Gregoire is dismissing claims that government has set aside Saturday as a public holiday. Many Dominicans believe that the national day of mourning which will be recognized tomorrow for the official funeral of Dominica’s Goodwill Ambassador Jeff Joe is a national holiday but the Cabinet Secretary says Dominican businesses are expected to operate as normal. “Saturday December 03, 2011 has been declared a national day of mourning. That day is definitely not a national or public holiday. When we say national day of mourning we expect people to be solemn in their dealing. We expect the radio stations to play soft music such as gospel, we expect persons to be dressed in black and white. To be thinking about, in this case Jeff Joseph and his life. It is certainly not a public holiday,” he stressed.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

first_imgEven though Nick did not win the gold medal that everyone in this area hoped he would, he did carry the American banner proudly.  The two athletes ahead of him were both Americans as well, and it will probably be the only event where this will happen.  For a 19-year old in his first Olympics, no one can be too disappointed.  I am sure with his personality he will do quite well in obtaining new and better endorsement deals which should allow him to complete again in four years.  The fall that occurred this year in one of his runs should serve him well when this opportunity comes around again.  Sometimes when everything goes too easy, an athlete gets too confident, doesn’t work as hard, and before he/she knows it the next set of athletes passes them by.  Nick will not let this happen!  Winter Olympics are not America’s strong point, so what he did accomplished is a plus for the American team–and for Southeastern Indiana!  It is a shame that families have to sacrifice so much, and unless you medal, there isn’t a lot of financial help at the end of the Olympic rainbow.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 14, 2014 at 12:50 am Contact Stephen: sebail01@syr.edu | @Stephen_Bailey1 CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — DaJuan Coleman was unable to play in No. 2 Syracuse’s (17-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast) 69-59 win against Boston College (5-12, 1-3) on Monday due to swelling in his left knee.Coleman, who has not started the Orange’s last five games due to a left leg contusion, did not practice Sunday and is continuing daily treatment for the injury he suffered two and a half weeks ago.“Basically just waiting for the swelling to go down,” Coleman said. “It’s getting a lot stronger, though.”Coleman has played just three minutes in those five games — garbage time at the end of Syracuse’s win over Virginia Tech last Tuesday — and appears to favor his right leg when warming up with a left knee brace before games. He was averaging nearly 15 minutes per game before the injury limited him to only six minutes against Villanova on Dec. 28.Coleman’s status is still day-to-day with the Orange’s next game against No. 23 Pittsburgh on Saturday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I’m hoping that he, this week, gets better and that we can use him,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “That’s what I’m hoping for, but we’ll see what happens.”Coleman said he suffered the injury setting a screen in practice when a teammate banged into the side of his left knee. Since beginning treatment shortly thereafter, Coleman said the leg has gotten gradually stronger.His treatment consists of light weight lifting to warm up, then running on a treadmill in an in-ground pool to reduce strain on his leg.“That’s basically what I’m doing and just resting,” Coleman said.It’s just a matter of icing the contusion and waiting for the swelling to go down.“When he’s ready, he’ll play,” Boeheim said.

first_imgStudents reflect on past activism International students engage in campus politics Students differ on the proper outlets for political activism If you were to ask a college-educated person about politically active campuses in the United States, the University of Southern California might not be the first school that comes to mind. In recent years, however, USC has become a student body that is not only aware of social and political issues, but actively engaging and making an impact in their surrounding communities.Whether it’s in the immediate vicinity of Los Angeles, or even in showing solidarity to protesters on the other side of the Pacific Rim, USC has a sprawling diversity of interests, and students all over campus are leading the charge in making their surrounding communities a better place. When Yasmeen Serhan and I envisioned this supplement, we wanted to capture a snapshot of the rapid growth USC is undergoing with regard to its political activity and the extent of student involvement. Though we couldn’t include every issue, we hope to capture a glimpse of how our fellow Trojans are making a genuine impact on the world around them.Some acknowledgments: I’d like to extend a special thank you to Special Projects Editor Yasmeen Serhan, who worked tirelessly organizing and executing this supplement despite a myriad of commitments, as well as Design Director Mollie Berg, whose meticulous attention to detail and tireless work ethic resulted in the visual product you see before you. I’d also like to thank the Fall 2014 Daily Trojan Editorial Board and the Office of Student Publications for their contributions. Finally, I’d like to thank you, our readers, for your continued support and readership.

first_imgRichard Montañez’s voice boomed through the room as his intense gaze met the eyes of several dozen students. Gesturing with his hands and speaking with complete conviction, Montañez told the crowd that when he was growing up in Guasti, a small town near Ontario, California, one moment in the second grade changed his life.“At my school, everyone spoke English, and I didn’t know English,” Montañez said. “On the first day, when I pulled out my burrito for lunch, everyone stared at me — and I put it back in the bag, because I was embarrassed. I wanted to be like everyone else.”But when Montañez went home and told his mom that he didn’t want to be different, she told him something that stuck with him.“She said, ‘No, mijo, this is who you are’ — and the next day, she made me two burritos,” Montañez said.On Monday night, Montañez addressed the Latina/o Student Assembly in a talk that covered his journey at PepsiCo, from working as a janitor at a Frito-Lay plant to serving as the executive vice president of multicultural sales and community activation for PepsiCo North America. As the inventor of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, Montañez discussed his pride in his Latino heritage as well as his determination to succeed when faced with seemingly insurmountable odds.Montañez, who never completed high school and made his way through the corporate world without a college degree, stressed the importance of pursuing the education that he was never able to attain.“When I was a kid, I didn’t know how to dream — my generation weren’t dreamers,” Montañez said. “Our fathers and grandfathers weren’t dreamers, because they didn’t have time to dream — they were too busy working. The generations that came before me kicked down the door for me, but you don’t need to kick down that door, because you have the key: your education.”While working as a janitor at the Rancho Cucamonga Frito-Lay plant in the 1970s, Montañez came up with the idea of creating snack products specifically marketed toward Hispanics, a market that hadn’t been touched by an American company at that point. Taking the initiative, Montañez developed his own recipe for what would later turn into Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, and pitched his idea to the plant’s CEO.“There’s one thing you need to start a revolution: a revelation,” Montañez said. “There are so many ideas in front of us that nobody else can see. You have to be a leader and a visionary in seeing what no one else can see.”Today, Montañez teaches leadership to MBA students, delivers keynote speeches at universities around the country and has met several U.S. presidents and spoken at the United Nations. He runs two charitable foundations, Kits for Kids and Feed the Children, and gives away college scholarships to young Latinos. According to Montañez, the secret to success is to embrace what makes you unique, as well as to have confidence in taking the initiative.“I never once went looking for money,” Montañez said. “It just so happened that money found me. The first thing that I wanted was happiness, and I wanted to be respected, but you have to respect yourself first.”Ultimately, Montañez emphasized that although it’s important for students not to let their background — zip code, skin color, or education level — define them, minorities should also never forget their heritage. When asked if he had ever considered going back to school, Montañez said he had decided not to — even if lacking a degree made him ineligible for a CEO position — because it “wouldn’t be him.”“I’m proud of you being here and trying to get an education,” Montañez said. “I don’t have an education. But I’m the most brilliant uneducated person you will ever meet.”last_img read more
