Group votes on club allocations

first_imgThe Saint Mary’s Student Government Association (SGA) met Tuesday to discuss budget allocations for clubs on campus, including two appeals from campus clubs. Both the Biology Club and the Social Work Club appealed the allotments received from SGA. Every club on campus is given the option to appeal its allotment and bring the issue to one of the SGA meetings. Clubs can only appeal a decision “if a procedural error has been made by the finance committee,” according to SGA finance committee bylaws. After hearing the appeals, SGA members discussed as a group whether or not to grant appeals for both of the organizations. Many questions came up during the discussion. “What exactly is a sponsorship?” senior class vice president Noelle Radko asked. “I’m not sure exactly what it is, and I know there may be some confusion about that among different clubs.” Student body president Nicole Gans explained that sponsorships, according to the finance bylaws, “serve to cover recognized clubs and organizations’ expenses that are campus-wide events or travel-related.” “It is important for all of you and any club on campus to come to see me if you have questions. I’m always in the SGA office,” SGA Executive Treasurer Liz Busam said. “If anyone is ever unclear on anything concerning allotments or finances, you can ask.” SGA Executive Secretary Emma Brink echoed Busam’s offer. “If you hear of any clubs having lingering questions, you can tell them to visit the SGA office and we can explain things to them there,” Brink said. According to the bylaws of the SGA finance committee, the purpose of allotments is “to fund the ‘material’ expenses of the club,” including “equipment and material for regular operations.” SGA give student clubs the option of applying for sponsorship from SGA for other expenses. SGA concluded its meeting by voting on the appeals. “I’m really proud of everyone for being able to make a decision on allotments,” Gans said. “We were able to work through things pretty fast, so I’m happy that we were able to get all of our allotments finished.”last_img read more

Cricket News ‘God help Indian cricket’, say Sourav Ganguly, Harbhajan Singh on conflict of interest notice to Rahul Dravid

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: “God help Indian cricket,” said Sourav Ganguly, expressing his displeasure after Rahul Dravid was issued a notice from the BCCI’s ethics officer on conflict of interest allegations against the legend. Ganguly was backed by off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who excelled under his captaincy. The BCCI ethics officer, Justice (Retd) DK Jain, issued the notice to Dravid on conflict of interest allegations made by Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association member Sanjay Gupta.”New fashion in indian cricket …..conflict of interest ….Best way to remain in news …god help indian cricket ……Dravid Gets Conflict of Interest Notice from BCCI Ethics Officer,” Ganguly wrote on his twitter handle. Supporting his former captain, Harbhajan said, “Really ?? Don’t know where it’s heading to.. u can’t get better person thn him for indian cricket. Sending notice to these legends is like insulting them.. cricket need their services for betterment.. yes god save indian cricket.”Dravid has been given two weeks to reply on the allegations levelled against him. According to Gupta, Dravid is allegedly conflicted as he is the current National Cricket Academy (NCA) director and vice-president of India Cements Group, which owns Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings.Gupta had earlier filed similar conflict of interest complaints against former cricketers VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar for their roles as Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) members and mentors of IPL franchises Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians respectively. Tendulkar and Laxman made lengthy depositions before Jain on their case and denied having any conflict while offering to step down from CAC if proved otherwise.Ganguly has also been at the receiving end of the conflict of interest notices for being the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president as well as the mentor for IPL franchise Delhi Capitals. Ganguly, too, said there is no conflict of interest in his roles as alleged by three cricket fans. last_img read more

Women’s World Cup 2019: Late penalty sends Netherlands past Japan

first_imgThe Netherlands booked a place in the quarterfinals of the Women’s World Cup thanks to a harsh late penalty converted by Lieke Martens that earned a 2-1 victory over Japan.Japan knocked the Dutch out at this stage four years ago en route to a final defeat against the United States, but Martens struck twice in Rennes on Tuesday to earn revenge. L I E K E #NEDJPN pic.twitter.com/DX1ULhZ59M— OranjeLeeuwinnen (@oranjevrouwen) June 25, 2019The Netherlands almost opened the scoring in the fifth minute, Aya Sameshima making an excellent block to deny Miedema, but the European champions soon took the lead.Sherida Spitse drilled in a low corner from the left wing and Martens flicked a superb backheeled finish through the legs of Yuika Sugasawa to beat goalkeeper Ayaka Yamashita.Japan almost hit back immediately, though, as Sugasawa did brilliantly to get into the Netherlands box but hit the outside of the post with her low shot.They did equalize before the break, Mana Iwabuchi slipping a clever throughball into the path of Hasegawa, who beat the offside trap before finishing well. Emi Nakajima tested Sari Van Veenendaal with a dipping long-range strike after the interval, Hasegawa then drilling narrowly wide as Japan continued to press.Hina Sugita hit the crossbar with a rocket of a drive in the closing stages before Van Veenendaal made a great save to deny substitute Yuka Momiki and seemingly take the game to extra time.But referee Melissa Borjas pointed to the spot to harshly punish Kumagai, with Martens making no mistake from the spot to set up a clash with Italy.KWARTFINALE! #NEDJPN pic.twitter.com/tAHDx9avrm— OranjeLeeuwinnen (@oranjevrouwen) June 25, 2019 The Netherlands led through Martens’ stunning goal in the 17th minute but Japan hit back through Yui Hasegawa and created a string of fine chances in the second half.It was Martens who scored the decisive goal in the last minute, though, converting a penalty given for a handball against Saki Kumagai, who blocked an on-target effort from Vivianne Miedema.

US women set to defend hoop title at world tourney

first_imgUSA’s Breanna Stewart, left, and Odyssey Sims, right, pressure Canada’s Tamara Tatham, center, during the second half of a women’s exhibition basketball game, Monday, Sept. 15, 2014, in Bridgeport, Conn. USA defeated Canada 76-51. (AP Photo/Jessica Hill)While the U.S. women’s basketball team is a heavy favorite to win another gold medal at the world championship, the Americans have shown some unusual vulnerability.The U.S. has only lost once at the worlds since 1998, but suffered a rare defeat in an exhibition game against France last weekend.That setback raised a few eyebrows heading into the tournament, which begins Saturday in Istanbul.“There are a lot of really good teams in the tournament and we’re one of them,” said coach Geno Auriemma “For us or anyone else to think we’re anything more than that is not being really objective about this whole thing.”The Americans ran through the 2012 London Olympics winning by an average of 34 points and have more than half of that team back in Turkey. Point guard Sue Bird, who will become the first U.S. player to compete on four world championship teams, will help lead the U.S. offense.Bird said she wasn’t aware of the milestone, “it’s kind of surreal in a way.”One reality she is used when it comes to playing for the U.S. is the limited training as a team.While other nations have been together for months preparing for the worlds, the Americans didn’t finalize their roster until Tuesday. What the team lacks in preparation, they make up for with talent. The roster is headlined by Diana Taurasi, Angel McCoughtry and Maya Moore.One potential thorn for the U.S. is a lack of experienced post players.Two-time Olympians Candace Parker and Sylvia Fowles are out with injuries. That just leaves Tina Charles and Candice Dupree as the only experienced posts.They do, however, have 6-foot-8 Brittney Griner, who will be making her debut on the U.S. national team. She was the WNBA defensive player of the year and set a record for most blocked shots in a game and season. Griner recently was cleared to join the team after suffering a retinal injury in Game 2 of the WNBA Finals.“I think my role will be blocking shots, playing defense and protecting that paint,” said Griner, who didn’t play in the loss to France. “I’m happy with that, because I love defense.”The Americans have a relatively easy draw facing China, Serbia and Angola in preliminary pool play. The U.S. has won all 11 meetings with China and Angola and will be facing Serbia for the first time.Only Russia and Australia have caused problems for the U.S. in major international tournaments since 1996. The Russians handed the Americans their only major loss in the last 16 years in the 2006 world championship semifinals, but they didn’t qualify for Istanbul.Australia was leading the U.S. at the half of the semifinals of the London Olympics before falling by 13. The Aussies chances of a repeat performance took a huge hit as stars Lauren Jackson and Liz Cambage both are out with Achillies tears.That doesn’t mean the U.S. won’t be challenged.France made an incredible run to win a silver medal in 2012 and has confidence after beating the Americans by four points on Sunday. They are led by WNBA players Sandrine Gruda and Celine Dumerc.Turkey has been improving over the past few years and has the added advantage of playing at home in front of a spirited crowd.“They are going to be very tough to beat,” Auriemma said. “I think if you’re the home team like the Czech Republic was in 2010 there’s some emotional benefit you get from that, provided you play well.”___Follow Doug on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/dougfeinberglast_img read more
