Three of the eight honorees have ties to Saint Augustine’s University – Dr. Robert E. Bridges, Rev. Arthur James Calloway and Bishop Henry Beard Delany.  This recognition demonstrates how two former SAU professors and an alumnus have upheld SAU’s rich legacy by making significant contributions to the city.Dr. Bridges’ service to the City of Raleigh began in 1961. Upon earning a degree in elementary education from Saint Augustine’s College (now University), he was hired by Raleigh City Schools to teach fourth grade at Hunter Elementary School.  In 1984, he became the school system’s first African-American superintendent.   During his 28-year career, he helped integrate the school system, participated in the merger of the Raleigh School System and Wake County School System into one, and oversaw unprecedented growth.  Aware of the need for African-American male children to have mentors and encouragement in achieving academic success, he created the Helping Hands Program which the school system still operates.  After retiring in 1989, Dr. Bridges served as provost at SAU and chaired the NC Advisory Commission on Raising Achievement and Closing Gaps.  He continues to work with the Helping Hands Program and mentor young African-American men.  His impact on the community and the school system has been recognized throughout the years by numerous awards including the Wake Education Partnership Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013.For thirty-nine years, Rev. Calloway served the citizens of Southeast Raleigh as rector of St. Ambrose Episcopal Church.  Under his leadership, the church established after-school programs, provided meeting space for Alcoholic Anonymous, and provided grants for senior citizen programing all to the benefit of Southeast Raleigh.  During this time, he also took on the role of community organizer, civil rights activist and college instructor at SAU.  During the 1960s, he helped organize efforts to integrate Raleigh City Schools and supported the election of African Americans to political office.  Rev. Calloway was elected to the Raleigh City Council representing Southeast Raleigh for three terms from 1979-1985.  He was also involved with the PTA, Save Our Community Association, Southside CAC and Southeast Optimist Club.  In 1998, Rev. Calloway retired from St. Ambrose.  He passed away in 2001.Alumnus Delany, a centennial inductee, was born an enslaved person on February 5, 1858 and died April 14, 1928 as a Bishop in the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina. Delany, a Georgia native, arrived in Raleigh in 1881 to enroll as a student at St. Augustine’s Normal School to study theology and music. After graduating in 1885, Delany immediately joined the staff. He served as the chaplain, vice principal and supervisor of building projects. He and his students helped construct several buildings on the campus including the Historic Chapel, which still is a place of place of spiritual guidance for the campus and the community.Ordained in The Episcopal Church in 1889, Bishop Delany’s legacy continues in the churches he helped found as well as at SAU’s Historic Chapel.A Hall of Fame induction ceremony is scheduled for Monday, October 5 at the Raleigh Convention Center.

Midweek Madness – Nathan White unleashes on Al Baxter

first_imgWednesday May 12, 2010 Midweek Madness – Nathan White unleashes on Al Baxter It’s midweek, so time for some madness as we take a look at this short clip from the Super 14 that shows Chiefs front rower Nathan White letting loose on Waratahs prop Al Baxter when the two sides met on the weekend.The clip was requested earlier in the week, so I thought it would be pretty interesting to get it posted to show you all exactly what happened, and how blatant punching can apparently be forgiven on the rugby pitch these days.In a week where two players were suspended for dangerous tackles, it’s a little strange to see that White, who launched (and landed by the look of things) at least three solid punches on Baxter, got away with this with little more than a penalty against his team.In general it was a pretty bad weekend for the officials, and Steve Walsh kept with the low standard as he looked out of sorts at times in this game, and lacked his usual confidence when it came to decision making. He also found himself having to perform Matrix-like manoeuvres to get out of the way on more than one occasion.He picked up criticism not too long ago for winking at a front rower after penalising the other side, and at the beginning of this clip you can see him once again being just a bit too friendly.When it came to the scuffle though, Walsh, after consulting assistant ref Vinnie Monroe, decided to just give the players a talking to and a penalty. A while back that was considered great reffing.Perhaps there’s a school of thought that will say the same now even, and fair enough if that’s what you subscribe to, but we were also told recently that punching on a rugby field is a direct red card, or at least a yellow. White’s punches looked like the real deal, so should he not have been sent to the cooler?Compare mistimed, reckless tackles that get a few weeks out of the game, with what we see here, and once again we’ve got confusion when it comes to how the game is, and should be, policed.So the point of this post isn’t to have a go at Walsh himself, it’s merely to get a bit of feedback regarding your thoughts on the matter, as I’m sure opinions are divided. Maybe it was simply a case of both Walsh andMonroe being uncited.. The question for you is: Was this well handled, or should White have been carded? On a sidenote, coming up on RD we’ve got highlights of Leinster vs Edinburgh, our Super 14 Pick of the Week, the next episode of School of Hard Knocks, Guinness Premiership highlights, and any other interesting clips we come across.

The Jaffa Roofhouse is a project designed by Ben Gitai Architects and was conceptualised and built by the Architects Ben Gitai, Charly Chrochu, and co-curated with Isabelle Wolff. The Jaffa Roofhouse is situated at the ancient port of the city of Jaffa, reputed to be one of the oldest ports in the world, out of which modern-day Tel Aviv has grown. Throughout the design development of the project, a profound dialogue was in-stored between the Roofhouse and the surrounding Landscape.Save this picture!© Dan BronfeldSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Dan BronfeldThe Jaffa Roofhouse, entailing a complete renovation of an existing space intended for quality and comfort, was completed in the year 2020. The synthesis of the space in the Roofhouse is based on the idea of dividing the plan into two zones: the living room, which is made up of a continuous curved earth structure, and the private spaces which are oriented towards the outdoor space. This division intends to create a clear layout which connects the inside and outside. The private zone includes two sleeping areas integrated into the curved structure as well as a dressing area and toilets.Save this picture!© Dan BronfeldThe living area includes an indoor/outdoor dining room and kitchen, and a patio with shower and toilet. The Roofhouse creates an in&out spatial experience, where the outdoor merges with the indoor to create a unique flow-based on light and nature. Every space in the Roofhouse is connected and separated at the same time by the poetic passage doors letting the light go through to form incredible shapes while ensuring intimacy in each room. Materiality was of premier importance in the spatial atmosphere and expression of this project, with most of its elements being earth-made from soil sourced from the local area. The curved structure is made of compressed soil and straw with earth plastering. These earth structures were constructed at an offset from the concrete existing shell, which allows for airflow inside the walls and a fluid natural circulation of air between the earth elements which regulates the room’s humidity and temperature, utilizing earth’s natural buffering abilities.Save this picture!© Dan BronfeldThe passive system of controlling the environmental conditions in this project was of vital importance for the quality of living. In order to bring nature to this space, we created a garden library integrating 450 different ceramic pots created by hand, introducing and bridging the authenticity of the local Bedouin culture and the monochromatic colours of the city. The continuing transformation of the Roofhouse by the light touching each geometric piece in the Roofhouse gives and impression of metamorphosing and presence into space. The orientation of each of the modules was hand-carved and shaped in order to have this quality. This Roofhouse is designed to feel suspended in the air of Jaffa-Tel Aviv and grounded by its materiality. One can choose to enjoy the silence of the space and wander off in thoughts or to listen to the distant sounds from a city that never sleeps. “COPY” 2020 Israel Projects Photographs:  Dan Bronfeld, Ben Gitai Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyHouses•Israel ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/943175/jaffa-roofhouse-gitai-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeGitai ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookIsraelPublished on July 10, 2020Cite: “Jaffa Roofhouse / Gitai Architects” 09 Jul 2020.

Roach Honors College decided that this year each college would individually provide a platform for their college’s senior honors students to present their honors thesis.This year those seniors were Allie Friedman, Dayna Martin, Sarah Clement, Beth Harrison, Catherine Cummisky, and Jordan MacAskill.“It used to be that all of the students seeking departmental honors across the university would present their projects in one giant event,” Esping said.Esping said this year the honors college decided to let each college create an event for their own students because each college knows the best platform for their students to present on.“We decided that the best way to honor this incredibly consuming and difficult and exciting process was to give them a more elegant forum where they would have a bigger audience,” Esping saidThe projects take students up to two years to complete, and students are led by a mentor and one or two other people.“This project has taught me a great deal about the field of special education, and I’m very grateful for the support and guidance that I received from the College of Education,” Cummiskey said. “I am especially grateful for my advisor, Dr. Lindy Crawford, who helped me through this entire process.”Friedman, unlike the many students who chose empirical studies, wrote a children’s fiction chapter book.“While the story is fiction, it is all based on research,” Friedman said.At the event, each student presented to a panel of judges for 15 minutes followed by a five-minute question-and-answer section.The criteria for judging was developed by students in Qualitative Research 2, a College of Education graduate course, led by professor Gabe Huddleston. The students, who doubled as judges, created the judging criteria based on what they learned in their class.The winner of the College of Education senior thesis presentation, Sarah Clement, was awarded $100 and will go on to present her senior thesis at the Boller Competition. The Boller Competition consists of a representative from each college at TCU competing to win the Boller Prize.In addition to competing for the Boller Prize, many of these students will go on to publish their work, Esping said.“I’m excited to talk to people about it and show them what I’ve learned and accomplished,” said Friedman.Friedman said her book is now in the beginning stages of the publishing process, and that is what she is really excited about.Soon-to-be graduates and presenters like Dayna Martin are grateful for the opportunities that The College of Education has afforded them.“TCU and the college of ed transformed my life for the better and I’ll forever be grateful for all the experiences and love I have received,” Martin said.

Noi’s injury, poor shooting hinders men’s basketball in home defeat to Oklahoma

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe Horned Frogs’ Saturday morning didn’t get off to a great start when forward Kouat Noi, TCU’s second-leading scorer and three-point shooter, walked out during warmups with a boot on his left leg. The redshirt sophomore rolled his ankle in practice Friday, according to a team source, which held him out of the Horned Frogs’ match-up with Oklahoma. The TCU offense significantly felt his absence as they shot 35 percent from the field, the second lowest of the season, and 28 percent from behind the three-point line in a nine-point defeat, 71-62. The Sooners (16-10, 4-9) shot 50 percent from the floor.Forward JD Miller, who scored a team-high 14 points, and guard RJ Nembhard, who put up 12 points, combined to shoot 5-19 in Noi’s absence. Miller said that’s how their offense is designed regardless of whether or not they’re going in, but head coach Jamie Dixon had another perspective on three-pointers accounting for 49 percent of their field goal attempts.“I don’t think we got good enough looks, we took too many three’s, and you don’t want over 40 percent of your shots to be three’s, so we took too many,” Dixon said. “We didn’t get enough penetration or interior touches, that’s why their 3-2 zone was so successful because we didn’t play inside-out like we would usually against the zone.”Freshman guard Kendric Davis received his first career start in place of Noi and also scored a team-high 14 points, but he said the Australian’s absence had a dramatic effect on TCU’s offensive attack. “It’s very tough since his presence itself is a big us because everyone knows he can shoot the ball, which is like 15 points off the board, but defensively he gives another dimension,” Davis said. “Today, the ball was thrown down low because we were playing so small, and the shots we were missing were affected by the fact that we were all playing a lot of minutes with six or seven people. Missing him is a big part of what we do.”TCU guard Kendric Davis hits a three-pointer against Oklahoma. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoSix of TCU’s eight players to see the court Saturday played at least 26 minutes, while four played at least 30 minutes. Miller and point guard Alex Robinson each played 38 of a possible 40 minutes. “We’re down to six or seven in the rotation, and it’s hard on our bodies,” Miller said. “We’re playing a lot of minutes. We have to keep fighting.”In his 16 years as a head coach, Dixon said the Horned Frogs’ injury issues are unfathomable. “We have had four guys have season-ending injuries, that’s unheard of, but it is what it is,” he said. “We can sit here and call it an excuse but it’s not. We’ve got to figure it out. No one is going to feel sorry for you — you have to find a way.” Lat Mayen, Yuat Alok, Angus McWilliam and Jaylen Fisher have all suffered season-ending injuries this season, while Kaden Archie dealt with a few smaller injuries before transferring to UT-El Paso. Dixon added that he’s unsure how long Noi will be out, but he expects that “it won’t be long” until the redshirt sophomore returns.TCU led Oklahoma for the game’s first 14 minutes, but the Sooners made a push behind forward Kristian Doolittle. He scored six straight points in the first half’s final three minutes, as Oklahoma took a two-point edge into the locker room, 32-30. Doolittle finished with a game-high 21 points in addition to 10 rebounds and five assists. His Jan. 12 performance against TCU up in Norman was eerily similar, as Doolittle put up 24 points and 10 rebounds in the Sooners’ 76-74 victory over the Horned Frogs. The second half didn’t start off well for the Horned Frogs, as the Sooners’ first three baskets were three-pointers, which allowed them to get out to a double-digit lead, 47-37, with 13:34 left to play.Still trailing by ten with 5:16 to play, 59-49, Nembhard began to bring the Horned Frogs back. The redshirt freshman drained a three-pointer and then converted a three-point play by finishing a lay-up through contact, which left TCU down four, 59-55, with 4:39 to play. Sooner guard Miles Reynolds countered with lay-in that left the Horned Frogs down six, 61-55, with 3:33 to play. The Horned Frogs then turned the ball over, which led to a wide-open Brady Manek dunk. Miller followed with a lay-up, but Doolittle countered with a floater of his own, which left TCU staring down an eight-point hole with 1:34 to play.Nembhard drilled a three-pointer from the right corner, providing a sliver of hope for TCU, as they trailed by five, 65-60, with 1:22 to play.TCU guard RJ Nembhard hits from the corner for three against Oklahoma’s Aaron Calixte. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto Sooner guard Christian James countered with a lay-up, and the Horned Frogs took too much time on their next possession.“We got careless with the ball late, when we were getting stops,” Davis said. “We threw it away, turned it over and took bad shots, which is like a turnover. We have to execute better.” Dating back to March 9, 2017, TCU has defeated every Big 12 opponent at least once except for Oklahoma. However, Dixon said he didn’t see a recurring theme because of the injury woes his team faced today. “I wouldn’t say there is any similarity, we put out a new product today that wasn’t successful, so I don’t know what that has to do with last year,” Dixon said. The Horned Frogs (17-8) have six games left in the regular season, three at home and three on the road. The loss drops them to 5-7 in Big 12 action. “You can’t lose home games, all home losses are problematic, so we are going to have to go find a win somewhere else, maybe somewhere people didn’t expect,” Dixon said. “That’s what we did at Iowa State… we have to focus on Monday and play better Monday.”TCU hits the road to face Oklahoma State at 8 p.m. Monday in Stillwater.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice S Vioshwajith Shetty in its order dated December 1, 2020, noted “It is the duty of the State Government to ensure that if liquor is being illegally sold, on a complaint received in that behalf, immediate action is taken for preventing illegal sale of liquor. If an organization of women makes such a complaint, it is all the more necessary for the State Government and its Officer to act very expeditiously considering the rights of women.” Petitioner SUDHA KATWA had primarily sought a direction to constitute a committee of experts to recommend steps to implement Article 47 of the Directive Principles of the Constitution. Further, it had prayed for issuing a direction to form Nigrani Samitis of Women with legal rights to stop illegal sales in each village. A direction to the State to empower Gram Sabha Resolution to close down even the Licensed Shops even if 10% of People vote for this. Also direct the Government to form Committees like “Village Nigrani Committees” and other committees with some legal backing and support of Karnataka Legal Services Authority. The bench said: “All the prayers are for issuing a writ of mandamus. A writ of mandamus can be issued to enforce performance of a statutory duty or a statutory obligation. Except for the prayer clause (b), we do not find from the petition or from the submissions of the learned counsel for the petitioner that there is a specific failure pleaded on the part of the State Government to perform a particular statutory duty or a particular statutory obligation. As far as prayer clause (b) is concerned, if the sale of a particular category of liquor requires a licence and if the same is being sold without obtaining the requisite licence, it is the obligation of the State and the concerned authorities competent to take action to immediately step in and prevent illegal sale of liquor.” It added ” Though the intention of the petitioner when he sought these prayers may be very noble, we are afraid that a writ of mandamus as prayed for except for the prayer (b) cannot be issued as corresponding legal duty and obligation on the part of the respondents is not shown.” It disposed of the petition by stating “Writ jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India is equitable and discretionary. Merely because a representation made by the petitioner is not being decided, a writ of mandamus cannot be issued for asking in a mechanical manner. The Court will have to examine the nature of the representation. The Court will have to examine whether the authority to whom the representation is made has a power to grant the relief claimed in the representation. The conduct of the petitioner is also required to be examined.”Next Storylast_img read more
