England criticised for not making most of conditions against Australia

first_img(REUTERS) – England’s 64-run loss to Australia in the World Cup on Tuesday left their semi-final qualification hopes in the balance and British media outlets settled on a similar theme, focusing on the hosts’ lack of application as compared to their rivals.Australia (12 points) sealed the first semi-final spot with their sixth win while England – fourth with eight points and two games left – must now keep one eye on other results with Bangladesh and Sri Lanka breathing down their necks.England great Geoffrey Boycott called their batsmen “one-dimensional” and “flat-track bullies” and that was evident from some of their dismissals by bowlers Jason Behrendorff (5-44) and Mitchell Starc (4-43), who thrived in seam-friendly conditions. “England have simply been unable to deal with surfaces that have not allowed them to play their go-to explosive and aggressive game,” former cricketer Steve James wrote in The Times.“(Eoin) Morgan said afterwards that it would have been a ‘horrific’ decision to bat first… in these conditions, but from now on should he consider batting first? That is three losses chasing now.” Although England won the toss and elected to bowl at an overcast Lord’s, Morgan was let down by his bowlers as Australia’s patient 123-run opening stand gave them a platform to set a competitive total.By contrast, England were stumbling at 26-3 with James Vince, Joe Root and Morgan back in the pavilion by the end of the sixth over. “England were guilty of bowling too short in seam-friendly conditions as Aaron Finch (100) and David Warner (53) made headway in an opening stand… their third ton-plus partnership of the tournament,” David Ruse wrote on Sky Sports.“Australia were 44 for no loss after their first 10 overs as they dealt with the short stuff, England were reduced to 39-3 after their initial 10 as they floundered against the pitched-up deliveries.”Former English captain Michael Vaughan was particularly critical of Vince, whom he gave 1/10 in his player ratings in The Telegraph, after Jason Roy’s replacement failed for the third time and fell for a duck in the second ball of the innings. “England have a decision to make. No point continuing to play him (Vince) after three failures,” Vaughan wrote.“How is he going to suddenly turn it on against India in a game when if they lose they could be out (of) the World Cup when he has no form behind him? “They will have to wheel out Jason Roy or, if not, promote Moeen Ali or Chris Woakes to open. Neither options are ideal but they can’t do any worse.”England’s final two matches are against the two remaining unbeaten sides in the tournament – India and New Zealand.They are two teams England have not beaten in seven attempts at the World Cup since 1992, prompting another former captain Mike Atherton to borrow a phrase made famous by former Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson. “It is squeaky bum time now.”last_img read more

For DACA recipients at USC, the future is unknown

first_img“I grew up here,” said Araksya Nordikyan, a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and student at USC. “I don’t know a home besides California. Our parents took a good-willed intention and a risk, and we can’t be blamed for it, because we were so young. It’s really unsettling because if I’m not allowed to call this place my home, and my home is also not where I’m from, then what is home? Where do we belong?”Nordikyan, a junior majoring in philosophy, politics and law, is one of the dozens of DACA students at USC. She said she doesn’t remember much about coming to the United States. She emigrated from Armenia with her parents when she was just 4 years old, and hasn’t been back since.Nordikyan didn’t know her immigration status until her senior year of high school. When she tried to apply for financial aid to pay for college, she realized she didn’t qualify because she isn’t a citizen of the United States. AN UNCERTAIN FUTUREAraksya Nordikyan, a junior studying philosophy, politics and law, are DACA recipients. Photo courtesy of Nordikyan.DACA is an Obama-era policy that grants work permits and deportation relief for two-year renewal periods  for undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as minors. Now, DACA recipients at USC are facing uncertainty about the security of the program — President Donald Trump issued an order on Sept. 5 last year that would have terminated the DACA program on Monday. However, federal district courts in Brooklyn and San Francisco filed injunctions against the order, and the Supreme Court declined Trump’s attempt to bypass appeals courts and reverse the injunction decision at the Supreme Court. “The uncertainty scares me — I don’t know what’s going to happen next,” Nordikyan said. “What if [Trump] cancels the program completely? What happens next? I have no clue.” Provost Michael Quick sent out a memo Monday encouraging students and staff who are DACA recipients to seek legal advice in light of increased uncertainty about the program’s continued existence.“While the more immediate threats to those in our community with DACA status are at least temporarily removed, we know this also prolongs the fear and ambiguity,” Quick said in his memo.USC President C. L. Max Nikias said he is worried about the uncertainty that Trump has created regarding DACA’s status.  He estimates that there are at least 70 to 100 DACA recipients currently attending USC. “[It] creates a lot of anxiety for these kids,” Nikias said in an interview with the Daily Trojan. “It may prevent them from concentrating on their studies.”Nikias said he identifies with students struggling with immigration issues. He came to the United States to pursue his master’s degree and subsequent Ph.D. at the State University of New York Buffalo, and he and his wife, Niki, had to go through a complex naturalization process to become American citizens. “We came to the United States a long time ago as international students to pursue the dream, for better lives, for better education,” Nikias said. “I can sympathize with the anxiety and uncertainty of an immigration status, but also I can see the benefits of education, that anyone who gets a USC degree and stays here and pursues a career, they are going to be very productive citizens of our society.” Yaneiry Barrios holds a flag | Daily Trojan file photoYaneiry Barrios, a senior studying contemporary Latino and Latin American studies and social sciences (psychology) immigrated to the United States from Guatemala when she was just a year old. “It was very hard because [my mother] migrated by herself with her one-year-old on her back,” Barrios said. Barrios said she grew up with a vague understanding that she was undocumented, but didn’t fully understand it until she tried to apply to a study abroad program in France at her high school. At that point, she realized she couldn’t because of her immigration status. Barrios said she was one of the first to apply for DACA when President Barack Obama introduced the program in 2012. “It felt good,” Barrios said. “I was the first one in my family who was able to get an actual driver’s license, and understanding that I was granted an opportunity to be legal here, even though it wasn’t [citizenship], but have the reassurance that I can stay here.”But that began to change after Trump was elected to office and began to make changes to U.S. immigration policy. “My DACA expires toward the end of September,” Barrios said. “Right now, with the uncertainty of what’s going to happen, I don’t know if I’m going to lose my DACA, or if I’m going to be able to reapply … What scares me is that if they remove DACA completely and get rid of it, what’s going to happen when I graduate?”THE RIGHT RESOURCES Graphic by Karan Nevatia | Daily TrojanThe University has set in place various initiatives to provide resources for DACA students, staff and faculty. Associate Dean of Religious Life Vanessa Gomez-Brake was appointed the central contact person to coordinate support for DACA students across campus, the Gould School of Law is hosting immigration clinics, and counseling services available to DACA students, Nikias said. “I have the opportunity as a religious leader and a chaplain to offer confidential counsel, which means anyone who walks through this door is able to feel and trust that I can keep anything they share with me confidential,” Gomez-Brake said. “As you can imagine, for those who are undocumented or even DACAmented, that is something that is very cherished, because that is something you can’t talk about with just anyone.”In terms of legal resources, the Gould Immigration Clinic’s Legal Advice Project provides assistance to USC community members — including students, staff, faculty and their family members — through legal consultation and advice, and by helping to fill out DACA renewal applications. “We’re helping DACAmented students to renew their DACA applications,” Immigration Clinic Director Niels Frenzen said. “We’re giving them individual consultations to determine whether or not they are eligible for anything else — is there something in their personal history that might allow them to pursue legal status that they didn’t know about before?”Barrios went to the immigration clinic to talk about her application with experts. “They told me what I could do, the next steps I should be [taking],” Barrios said. “I took what they told me and talked to my lawyer back home and see what she thought, and got her opinion as well, so I was able to get two sources.” The University is also reimbursing students for the $495 renewal fee for DACA, with funds from the Undergraduate and Graduate Student Governments and the Provost’s Office, according to Frenzen. Gomez-Brake said those funds will be disbursed through her and the Office of Religious Life. The University has also appointed Assistant Director of Crisis Services Beth Kebschull as the Engemann Student Health Center point of contact for DACA students, and Engemann will provide counseling services for students experiencing anxiety due to uncertainty about DACA, according to the Provost’s memo. At the same time, however, some students expressed concerns about the completeness of the University’s commitment to its DACA students and workers. Graphic by Karan Nevatia | Daily TrojanImproving Dreams, Education, Access and Success, a student organization created to empower undocumented students, held a workshop for DACA recipients on Tuesday. At the meeting, attendees discussed whether the University would continue to support them after they graduate, whether the University has a plan in place to support students if DACA is repealed in the near future and whether the University will continue to employ staff members who would no longer be authorized to work if their DACA work permits are invalidated. “After graduation, will USC just forget about us or would they still look out for us?” Valeria Resendiz, the co-executive chair of IDEAS, said. “There’s so much uncertainty surrounding DACA, we want to know that the school will keep us here, will support our education.”Barrios also said that she wants to see the University expand the pop-up DREAMer resource center that IDEAS and the American Studies and Ethnicity department created in 2017. The center’s name refers to the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, which would have allowed young undocumented immigrants to become permanent residents had it passed through Congress. “The University should make the DREAMer Center something more official, and something that should be running continuously, because there are still students at the University who have not come out as undocumented,” Barrios said. “It should have a space for all undocumented students to study and get to know each other, because we have [Asian Pacific American Student Services], El Centro, Norman Topping, the Lavender Lounge, so if we have spaces for those groups, we should also have spaces for undocumented students.” Resendiz said that while the center is still open, it lacks the resources it needs to run efficiently. POLITICAL ACTIONAlong with the on-campus resources provided, Nikias has been working to lobby the U.S. government to develop a permanent solution with a path to citizenship for DACA recipients. “We have an Office of Federal Relations in Washington, and when I go to Washington, and actually go with a delegation of trustees, we meet with members of Congress … [on] both sides of the aisle, where we actively lobby on this issue,” Nikias said. Nikias has also made his case to the media — he’s done interviews with CNBC and the Washington Post and published an op-ed in The Hill last month calling for a bipartisan presidential commission on immigration.“For so long, this has been a political issue without a face,” Gomez-Brake said. “It’s really important for us to remember that these are our fellow students, our fellow humans, they are like anyone else on campus, and they have the same needs.”last_img read more

Powered by Firework José Mourinho, once the most feared gaffer all around the European continent, is not having the best phase of his managerial career at the moment, and as seen in the FIFA’s The Best awards event, the ‘Chosen One’ is favouring to walk out from unfavourable questions.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Twitter(@GMS__Football)Since being sacked by the Manchester United hierarchy back in December 2018, the Portuguese has not been welcomed by any of the European elites, even though having work experience at Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.The current pundit for Sky Sports, Mourinho showed he does not facour questions regarding his break from a managerial job, as he takes leave from further questions being thrown at him in the award ceremony.Advertisement Check out the bizarre interview in the video below, courtesy to the official Twitter handle of GiveMeSport.Dreaming about a job as the manager of an imaginary ‘World XI’ team, the 56 year old told that Fabio Capello and Walter Zenga, who were present at the award ceremony, are also potential candidates to manage the said ‘dream team’, as they are also out of job.Soon after, Mourinho’s body language indicated that he was done with the questions, and as the interviewer thanked him for his honesty, he walked off the stage.“You have to stay here with me! Why do you want to go?” the lady presenter’s plea to stop Mourinho failed, and she ended with saying “Okay, you want to go.”Social Media stepped up after the clip went viral, as football fans suggested that the interviewer didn’t do the best of her job on stage, and Mourinho was right to make a prompt exit.

Black Friday Football Rivalry Bigger Than The Game

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |Thanksgiving may be about friends, family and feasting.But for those in the Two River area who like to get out and throw around a football, the day after Thanksgiving is all about “the Rivalry.”For the past six years, the Rivalry Series flag football knockout tournament has pitted town against town in a good-natured Black Friday competition that also raises serious money for Lunch Break of Red Bank.This year, the 2018 edition will include an even larger field of participants. Joining Little Silver, Shrewsbury, Fair Haven and Rumson will be squads from Middletown, Monmouth Beach, Oceanport and Red Bank.“The past couple of years we’ve started to include more and more people from different communities and the word continues to spread, and the interest grows,” said Rivalry Series organizer Rick Brandt of Little Silver.The games will kick off Friday, Nov. 23 at Count Basie Field in Red Bank and run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Children from different towns will play each other at grade level. There is also a division for women and another for men 18-34 and over 35.The first games will pit Little Silver against Shrewsbury, Red Bank against Middletown, Rumson against Fair Haven and Oceanport against Monmouth Beach.In the beginning, it was just a group of Little Silver friends who took to the turf for some post-holiday pickup football. The opposing team was from neighboring Shrewsbury.“When we first started playing as 12-year-olds back in 2002, I’m not sure we ever thought it would get to this point,” Brandt said. “Bragging rights were all we were worried about back then. But it’s come a long way.”Brandt learned early on about Little Silver’s deeply embedded, but friendly, rivalry with Shrewsbury.“When you’re growing up in those towns, the rivalry is seen and felt everywhere,” Brandt said. “It’s in your recreational sports. It’s in the schools. It’s everywhere you look.”“The funny thing about it is, you play against those guys for so long in so many different organized sports and pickup games that you actually start to like them,” Brandt said with a laugh. “Then you get to high school and your sharing classes with them and you can’t figure out why you were ever rivals in the first place.”Brandt said as the friendships grew, so did the traditional game itself. In their high school years, friends and family began attending, some to tailgate, other to mingle, and all to lend voice to their respective cheering sections.In college, though the distance between them increased, it was the game that helped maintain the bond between the friends. And each year the audience continued to grow.In 2013, Athlete’s Alley of Shrewsbury starting equipping players with personalized team jerseys, giving the day its own uniform. Inspired by the all the participation, Brandt formed a partnership with Lunch Break and over the next two years raised nearly $2,000 for the organization though small donations from those who played in and attended the game.“It was a nice start, but I thought we could do more,” said Brandt.Between 2015 and 2017 the series’ organizers pledged $10,000 donations to Lunch Break and hit their mark each time.In 2016, the traditional game was expanded, offering games for men, women and children from Little Silver and Shrewsbury.Last year, players who participated in the RIvalry Series raised $10,000 for Lunch Break of Red Bank. Photo courtesy Rick BrandtThis year donations are pouring in and Brandt expects the Rivalry Series will have raised $50,000 for Lunch Break by week’s end.One day, Brandt, working with his brother Rob Brandt, would like to see Rivalry Series expand even more and include teams from every part of Monmouth County.“We’re calling it the Rivalry Series, and we did that on purpose, because I’m not sure I want to limit this to just football,” Brandt said.“Down the line, I have no doubt that we can run basketball and softball events and have them be successful. There are so many different sporting events we can launch and then you’re really talking about a lot of money being raised and a lot of good being done in our community.”Rivalry Series Schedule of EventsFriday, Nov. 23The GamesBoys & Girls (3rd & 4th grade), 9 a.m.Boys & Girls (5th & 6th grade), 9 a.m.Boys & Girls (7th & 8th grade), 9 a.m.Men 35 & older, 11 a.m.Women 18 & older, 1 p.m.Men 18-34 years old, 3 p.m.After PartyVal’s in Rumson, 7-10 p.m.For more information or to register for competition visit therivalryseries.com.This article was first published in the Nov. 22-27, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more
