Fall rush turnout sets records

first_imgA record-breaking number of students attended rush events for sororities and fraternities during fall rush this year, with a potential new member class of 1,046 women rushing sororities.The nine sororities participating in rush were encouraged to offer more bids this year as a result of the large class, which broke the previous record of 953, USC Panhellenic President Megan Lambert said. Houses offered 737 bids this semester, with about 70 to 90 pledges in each sorority’s class.Roughly 300 students dropped out of Panhellenic’s rush and some students were not offered bids. Lambert said this happens every year, however.“There’s no guarantee that women will be matched up with a chapter, unfortunately,” Lambert said.USC Interfraternity Council President Michael Madden said official rush numbers will not be released until next week after IFC’s secondary rush ends. Madden said that, on average, more students attended rush events each night. Potential new members were asked to sign in to IFC’s computer system at each house they visited during rush events.“Every single day we were getting 50 more check-ins than what we had last year and the years prior,” Madden said.During house tours Sunday, for example, 1,054 potential new members signed in compared to 1021 students last year, Madden said.About 400 students received bids from fraternities, but more bids will be offered during IFC’s secondary rush, Madden said. Secondary rush will be held at The Lab on Sunday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.Despite the logistical challenges created by the increased number of students during the rush process, Lambert said she saw the bigger rush class as a positive change overall.“We are thrilled that there are so many women looking to join the Panhellenic community, and we can’t wait to welcome our new members,” she said.last_img read more

England U21s beat Poland to book semi-final place at European Championships

first_img Lewis Baker celebrates after scoring from the penalty spot 1 England Under-21s cruised into the semi finals of Euro 2017 after dismantling hosts Poland.Demarai Gray, Jacob Murphy and Lewis Baker’s penalty sealed a comfortable 3-0 win as England escaped the group stages at the tournament for the first time since 2009. They topped Group A ahead of Slovakia, who beat Sweden 3-0, with seven points and will play their last-four game on Tuesday but must wait to discover their opponent. Aidy Boothroyd’s assured side – who could play the runner-up of Groups B or C or the winner of C, which may be Germany – were always in control in their best display of the competition against the 10-man hosts.Jan Bednarek was also dismissed for a second booking after conceding a penalty for fouling Tammy Abraham as the hosts suffered an early exit. With Abraham benched after two gruelling games, Nathan Redmond led the line with Gray and the Leicester winger made an instant impact. England had already enjoyed a fast start with James Ward-Prowse, Lewis Baker and Alfie Mawson all going close within the opening five minutes before Gray put them in control. The 20-year-old scored just twice for Leicester during a frustrating last season but was on target he when he collected Ben Chilwell’s pass – following a delicious long ball from Jordan Pickford – and his 25-yard shot hit Jaroslaw Jach to fly past Jakub Wrabel. Gray had also scored the goal in Kazakhstan last October to seal England’s spot in Poland.Comfortable and settled with a sixth-minute lead the Young Lions relaxed with Poland’s muted response offering them encouragement.The hosts, bottom of the group, needed victory but England dictated the play and never allowed Marcin Dorna’s side to find the tempo which could haul them back. Chilwell’s marauding presence on the left caused constant problems while Baker, John Swift and Ward-Prowse easily held sway in midfield. A second goal was needed to avoid and it almost came on the half hour when Nathaniel Chalobah’s miscued effort called Wrabel into action and from the resulting corner the Slask Wroclaw goalkeeper brilliantly turned away Mawson’s free header. Swift then tested Wrabel from distance after 38 minutes but 60 seconds later Chalobah was forced off with what appeared to be a groin problem with Will Hughes, on the verge of a move to Watford from Derby, replacing him. It was the only blemish in an accomplished first half from England – by far their best display in Kielce – but they lost Redmond at the break with Murphy coming on. Confident England maintained their grip and Swift volleyed wide after 55 minutes from another brilliant set-piece delivery from Ward-Prowse. A second goal was needed to avoid late nerves and it duly arrived after 69 minutes in fine style as England hit Poland on the break. Calum Chambers expertly won the ball in his own area and found Baker who sent Gray scampering away down the left with Murphy in support. Gray raced into the area and squared for Norwich winger Murphy to tap in from six yards at the far post to double the lead and give Boothroyd’s men deserved breathing space. Przemyslaw Frankowski drilled wide soon after as Poland tried to respond but there was to be no comeback. Abraham wasted a fine chance with when he headed over but then won a penalty after being felled by Bednarek with nine minutes left.The defender was sent off for a second booking and Baker dispatched the spot kick to add gloss to the result.last_img read more

Ohio Pork Congress welcomes Tri-State Housing Conference

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest New to the 2016 Ohio Pork Congress is the addition of the Tri-State Sow Housing conference, hosted by The Ohio State University, Michigan State University and Purdue University. This special symposium on Tuesday, Feb. 9, is designed as an educational opportunity for producers, focused on one of the pork industry’s most widely debated animal welfare topics — sow housing.“As many producers are beginning the transition to group housing, it is the goal of the Tri-State Sow Housing Conference and the hosting universities to support the swine industry by expanding knowledge on options for housing systems and provide educational resources to make the transition from stalls to groups economically successful,” said Monique Pairis-Garcia, Assistant Professor Animal Well-being and Behavior, The Ohio State University. “We look forward to the opportunity to interact with producers across state lines and learn from global leaders in the industry.”The day-long conference will feature presentations and discussions led by experts representing various facets of the swine industry. Topics to be covered include the retailers’ perspective on marketing pressures related to sow housing, social perception of sow housing and purchasing behaviors of consumers, and employee training for farms transitioning to group housing. Also a very valuable addition to the conference will be panel discussion comprised of producers from Ohio, Michigan and Indiana that have experience transitioning to group housing.Dr. Lisbeth Ulrich Hansen will be traveling in from Denmark to provide the group with a European perspective on sow housing. Dr. Hansen will be leading a workshop on retrofitting barns, using experiences gained from her work at the Danish Swine Research Centre. The Tri-State Sow Housing Conference is focused on providing producers with the tools and education they need to make the transition to group housing as successful as possible. All producers are invited and encouraged to attend, and may access additional details and registration information by visiting OhioPork.org.last_img read more

Tougher measures ahead to deal with squatters

first_img Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #Squatters Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, July 3rd 2017 – Providenciales – Tougher measures are on the horizon as the Turks and Caicos Government takes aim at squatting.Squatting or illegal construction is a long standing problem and the new PDM Administration through Minister Goldray Ewing said the Planning Department is already empowered to deal with squatters or anyone building illegally in the Turks and Caicos, but amendments in Parliament will give planning officers more immediate power to deal with unlicensed building.It is a problem rampant throughout the islands and often, work permit holders are doing it but now, employers are put on notice by the Minister who reminded that housing for expatriate staff is a legal requirement; no foreign worker should be forced to have to build their own dwelling.  Low cost housing is also planned as an option by Government for those constructing illegally, as Minister Ewing said that the crackdown is less about making people homeless and more about regulating for quality constructions.center_img #MagneticMediaNewslast_img read more
