Diversity and Inclusion Summit at CU-Boulder aims to build ‘road map’ to diversity

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail The 19th annual Diversity and Inclusion Summit will be held at the University of Colorado Boulder Nov. 13-14, featuring a variety of sessions for students, faculty, staff and community members. All events are free and open to the public.This year’s theme, “Building the Road Map: Realizing Diversity and Inclusion for CU-Boulder, City of Boulder and Boulder County,” is based in part on a 2003 statement from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. In a Supreme Court ruling that diversity can be used in university admission decisions, O’Connor wrote: “We expect that 25 years from now, the use of racial preferences will no longer be necessary to further the interest approved today.”Alphonse Keasley, who has been involved with the summit since it began 19 years ago, says the Summit Planning Committee is using this year’s summit to help the campus and community march toward a place that “exemplifies diversity, intercultural understanding and community engagement.”“This year we will be taking a look at the history of our campus efforts related to diversity and inclusion,” said Keasley, CU-Boulder’s assistant vice chancellor for campus climate and community engagement. “We also will be looking at what it is we want to do, not only on campus, but also within the city and county. Thus the theme ‘Building the Road Map.’ We really would like to see this year as a year where we launch into some specific actions that we can take year after year.”Most summit events will be held in the University Memorial Center on the CU-Boulder campus. Highlighted sessions at this year’s summit, all to be held in the UMC’s Glenn Miller Ballroom unless otherwise noted, include:– Nov. 13, 9:30-10 a.m. Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia will offer insights on the critical importance of diversity and inclusion for the state of Colorado.– Nov. 13, 10:05-10:35 a.m. CU-Boulder Professor Adam Bradley will offer an address titled “A Hip-Hop Road Map to a Diverse Future.”– Nov. 13, 10:45-11:50 a.m. A panel titled “Where Have We Come From?” will cover significant milestones from the campus and community.– Nov. 13, noon-1:30 p.m. Keynote presentation by Professor Patricia Gurin of the University of Michigan on “Engaging Diversity: More Important Than Ever.” Gurin will discuss the social science evidence that was key in the 2003 Supreme Court affirmative action ruling on the educational benefit of diversity.– Nov. 14, 9:30-10:45 a.m. in UMC room 235. A panel titled “Where Are We Now and Where Are We Going?” will build on an understanding of the actions, policies and dialogues that have shaped the direction of diversity and inclusivity within the University of Colorado and greater Boulder community.Hosted by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement, the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee, Boulder County and the city of Boulder, the Diversity and Inclusion Summit offers more than 80 educational and exploratory sessions presenting a view of diversity beyond the most common definitions, highlighting the research, talents and insights of faculty, students and staff.  The purpose of the summit is to bring the most up-to-date practices around matters of diversity, inclusion, equity and social justice to campus.For a complete schedule of summit events visit http://sites.google.com/a/colorado.edu/cu-diversity-summit/home.Contact: Alphonse Keasley, assistant vice chancellor, 303-492-5479 Greg Swenson, University Communications, 303-492-3113 “This year we will be taking a look at the history of our campus efforts related to diversity and inclusion,” said Alphonse Keasley, CU-Boulder’s assistant vice chancellor for campus climate and community engagement. “We also will be looking at what it is we want to do, not only on campus, but also within the city and county.

The highway, which connects Laguna Heights and Port Isabel, was closed off for several hours, forcing a long line of vehicles to reroute and drive into Brownville to re-enter either city, including many of those who were coming back from participating in the 31st Annual Causeway Run and Fitness Walk which ended on South Padre Island. Though a brief power outage followed the electrical fire affecting a little over 1,000 area residents, the road wasn’t reopened until after 5:00 p.m. as the pole was swaying back and forth in danger of collapsing shortly after the fire ignited around 10:00 a.m.“The fire we saw was compromising the integrity of the pole,” said Officer Ray Brandriff of the Port Isabel Police Department who was on scene. “It’s starting to sway now. It doesn’t happen that often and usually they’re able to extinguish it. I can’t tell you why it’s still burning it this weather,” he said referring to the rainy atmosphere surrounding the unyielding fire.The fire was put out by emergency crews before the pole was intentionally dismantled and is expected to be replaced next week. Electrical lines had to be cut and rerouted so the disintegrating pole would not tear down neighboring power lines once collapsing.“We made a temporary measure to restore power until a permanent metal structure arrives to replace it,” said Franz Espinoza with AEP Texas. “This is a normal business practice in these kinds of situations. The public is not in any danger while we wait for the replacement to arrive.”Many of the wooden utility poles along the chief highway have been replaced by metal ones over time to prevent similar occurrences. Poor weather conditions are cited as the reason for the incident.Want the whole story?

Benitez on Ramos, Ronaldo-Bale divide and more

first_img Bale vs. Ronaldo: Coaches have to control a group of professionals, but not what their agents say. I talk to the players and when there’s a conflict, it’s solved. There’s no problem between Bale and Cristiano. Everything is magnified in Madrid. Sometimes it’s out of jealousy, or to attack. I am surprised. Cristiano Ronaldo: I have no problems with any player in the squad. Yesterday I spent a good, long time talking to Cristiano. He starts matches on the wing, but a little in the penalty area because he has goals. He practices free-kicks and does them very well. It’s a matter of time before he’s scoring them. Dropped points against Atleti: If at the Vicente Calderon we forced the best Atletico Madrid to make three changes in desperation and didn’t concede four times as in April this year, we must have done something right. On the table were his exchange of words with Sergio Ramos, the relationship between Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale and the dropped points against Atletico Madrid. 15/10/2015 EFE, Sport EN Here’s what the Spanish coach had to say:  Upd. at 12:44 Real Madrid manager Rafael Benitez spoke to Onda Cero’s Al Primer Toque on Wednesday night.  CEST Ramos: I fought more than anyone for Ramos to stay. There’ve been zero problems between us. He’s the captain and a phenomenon and he has to prove himself constantly. Unrest in the dressing room: I’m amazed at how many stories are invented. We have a very good dressing room. There’s a great atmosphere among the players. It’s healthier than you think. I’ve had locker rooms that are more complicated. They all have some players who are more happy or less happy and some can be worse than another teammate, but there’s been nothing exceptional. Injures: There aren’t as many injuries as people say. Today I counted nine. Injuries aren’t the same as fatigue. The fans can be calm, we’re working hard to prevent this, but we play twice a week with intensity and we have a lot of internationals.last_img read more

Powered by Firework The club management of Paris Saint Germain are eyeing to replace Edinson Cavani in the next summer transfer window. They are now sorting the options and Luka Jović and Mauro Icardi  are topping the list. The other options might well be Moussa Dembele or Romelu Lukaku.Advertisement Mauro Icardi is in good form for Inter Milan for last few seasons. So, he is certainly under the radar of many top European clubs in this summer transfer window. According to the sources, Mauro Icardi is wishing to leave Inter Milan after the end of this season. However, Inter Milan are currently placed at the third position in the league table of Serie A and they will qualify for the Champions League next season.Advertisement Luka Jović is also in great form this season for Frankfurt. Frankfurt are also in the semifinal of the Europa League. So, it is quite certain that all the European top guns are eyeing to make a move for him and Paris Saint Germain are also in this list. If the Ligue 1 Giants could not get Mauro Icardi or Luka Jović, they will go for Moussa Dembele or Romelu Lukaku and they are also quite renowned centre forwards to replace Edinson Cavani at Paris Saint Germain.Manchester United pull off the unthinkable at PSGAdvertisement Advertisementlast_img read more

‘Sin Bins’ in grassroots football – a huge but welcome development?

first_imgAdvertisement NBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs3o39iWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E2p0a6( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 2ztjWould you ever consider trying this?😱cv2ptCan your students do this? 🌚38wfRoller skating! Powered by Firework Dissent is a major negative side of football. Often , dissent leads a player or a team spiraling into sheer indiscipline and negative actions. In the perspective of fans too, dissent sends a wrong message to them, especially to the youngsters. The game of football which is supposed to promote teamwork and discipline , is rendered useless when a role model player engages into abusive behavior and dissent.Advertisement Along these lines, the good news for football is that the FA is endorsing the concept of sin-bins at the grassroot level. Sin bins are nothing but a zone outside the pitch where a player can be sent to by the referee for usually 10 minutes in case that player has engaged in dissent like activity.Advertisement Mark Bullingham, The FA’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “The introduction of sin bins is a positive step for grassroots football. They allow referees to address incidents of dissent quickly and effectively.“Dissent is a key part of the game that needs to be tackled, and our pilot phase has proved that sin bins work well. The trial showed a huge impact on behaviour that we want to roll out to the whole game and make it more enjoyable for everyone.”Advertisement This move has been well endorsed by people in the game with 72% of players, 77% of managers and 84% of referees praising the use of sin bins.
