Binghamton University seniors look back a college experience

first_imgFellow senior Alex Reksten, expressed gratitude for what the school gave them. Normally held at the school’s Peace Quad, Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger hosted a virtual Champagne Send-off on Facebook, a staple event of commencement festivities. It was a decision that senior Dan Mottes, a member of the college’s lacrosse team, expected. The school postponed their commencement ceremony back in April due to the coronavirus pandemic.  VESTAL (WBNG) – While the class of 2020 won’t have the traditional ceremony with guest speakers, caps, gowns and all the celebratory festivities, seniors at Binghamton University looked back at the last few years and it what it taught them. In the video, Stenger promised students the school will have an in-person graduation ceremony, with this upcoming fall being a target date. “A few weeks into the quarantine, you just kind of got the sense that we weren’t coming back for graduation,” Mottes said.  “Who you were as a person back then versus who you are now, it’s really cool to think back and think about all the personal growth that you’ve had,” he said. “It’s an absolute privilege to be graduating from Binghamton University,” Reksten said. “The biggest takeaway is that no matter where you are in life, you’re going to be presented with a set of resources and what you do with them is entirely up to you.” But as students prepare to go their separate ways, the class of 2020, at the school and across the globe, are forever connected. But while quarantined with his family, Mottes has been able to reflect on his time on campus. Reksten said she and her family were able to watch together over Zoom, hearing from alumni, local leaders, professors, students, and others with ties to the Binghamton University community. “I think we’re all going to be tied together because of this event,” Mottes said. “In the long term this is only going to make you stronger as person.”last_img read more

​MP Pension to divest DKK400m of assets after excluding 14 countries

Sudan Afghanistan MP’s banned country list Libya Denmark’s MP Pension has cut Saudia Arabia and 13 other countries from its investment universe on the grounds of systematic human rights violations.As a result, the Danish labour-market fund for academics has blacklisted a total of 30 countries.Anders Schelde, MP Pension’s CIO, said: “With this step, we are getting the most consistent criteria for responsibility in the financial sector, when it comes to investment in government bonds.“This is an area we have been working on for a long time, but now the time has come to redouble our efforts to promote respect for human rights.” Mozambique (new) Chad Benin (new)last_img read more

The Big Gay Marriage Lie

first_imgThe Federalist 24 July 2015      It has become devastatingly clear that virtually the entirety of the gay-marriage activist effort was built on a lie. That lie, repeated ad nauseam, was this: gay marriage will affect nobody outside of the gays who wish to partake in it. This will become abundantly false as the Supreme Court-instituted gay marriage regime takes effect.We did not actually need to nationalize gay marriage to realize this. We have had examples for years from the states that already legalized the practice. Combined with the growing public hostility towards supporters of traditional marriage, it is impossible at this point to deny that gay marriage is a growing and serious threat to the liberty of those who disagree with it.Gay Marriage Doesn’t Hurt AnyoneExhibit A comes to us from Gresham, Oregon, a state in which gay marriage has been legal since 2014. In Gresham, a couple of bakers declined to make a wedding cake for a lesbian wedding. Because the lesbians in question endured “emotional and mental suffering” after their cake request was turned down, the state’s labor commissioner demanded that the bakers—a husband-and-wife team—pay the plaintiffs $135,000.In addition to this astronomical charge, the excitable commissioner ordered that the couple was not allowed to publicly proclaim their desire to not bake cakes for gay weddings. That is to say, the state slapped the Christian bakers with an enormous fine, then forbid them from advocating the point of view for which they were being fined.Gay marriage, we’ve been told, will not affect you.Exhibit B is found near Albany, New York, a state in which gay marriage has been recognized since 2011. At the Liberty Ridge Farm, another husband-and-wife team was fined $13,000 for refusing to host a gay wedding on their property (at which they host other public and private events). In 2012, a lesbian couple requested to use the property for their wedding. Believing in traditional marriage, the couple declined. Unluckily for the owners of the property, the phone call was being recorded. A judge subsequently determined the farmers guilty of “sexual orientation discrimination,” hence the fine. The farmers were also ordered to attend “staff re-education training classes.” The defendants have appealed the decision.Just legalize it, we were told for years. It’s not going to affect you!No More Churches For YouExhibit C comes from the laughably-misemployed religion writer for The New York Times, Mark Oppenheimer: “Now’s the time,” he announced after the ruling, “to end tax exemptions for religious institutions.” Oppenheimer, you see, believes that a tax exemption is functionally identical to a “subsidy,” and because religious institutions and other non-profits can be “quite partisan,” they don’t deserve to receive “subsidies” that require the rest of us to “faithfully cut checks to them.”As a result of the Supreme Court declaring that homosexuals have the right to marry, in other words, we’re now facing an energized progressive intelligentsia that wishes to effectively shutter many if not most of America’s churches.They told us over and over again: Gay marriage has nothing to do with you! You don’t have to worry about it!Exhibit D—perhaps the most foreboding—is in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in which the editor of PennLive/The Patriot-News announced the paper “will no longer accept, nor will it print, op-eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage.” Under the First Amendment, the paper is free to refuse to print any letters it wants, of course. It is unfortunately utilizing that precious freedom to silence differing opinions on a critical, complex issue of serious public interest.It is wholly plausible that many newspapers will follow suit, believing that opposition to or even skepticism about gay marriage is equivalent to, as the above newspaper’s editor put it, “racist, sexist, or anti-Semitic” opinions. Overnight, the sincerely-held opinions of a great many good, well-intentioned Americans became verboten. Reasonable dissent will not be tolerated. read more

Skrtel pens new Liverpool deal

first_img Skrtel, 30, would have been a free agent next summer if terms had not been agreed on a new contract, but talks were prolonged as the Slovakia international held out for a suitable deal. Now he has signed his new contract he will comp ete with the likes of Dejan Lovren, Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho for a place at the heart of Brendan Rodgers’ defence. The news comes after an announcement earlier on Friday that midfielder Jordan Henderson has been chosen as Liverpool’s new captain, succeeding Steven Gerrard who has moved to Major League Soccer side the LA Galaxy. Only last month Skrtel rejected as ”unacceptable” the new contract on offer, one of the club’s new model performance-related deals, after describing it as ”the kind offered to players who are much older or who have health problems”. However, those issues were ironed out and the Slovakian, Liverpool’s most consistent defender over the last two years, is likely to be a key figure in manager Brendan Rodgers’ back line this season. Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has finally penned a new deal with the Anfield club.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Third Powell century brings Leewards Hurricanes another victory

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua, (CMC) – Left-hander Kieran Powell stroked his third hundred of the Regional Super50 to surpass 400 runs for the tournament as Leeward Islands Hurricanes returned to their winnings ways with a dominant 105-run victory over Kent Spitfires here Saturday night.After watching their three-game winning streak ended by Trinidad and Tobago Red Force last Thursday, the hosts erased that disappointment by piling up 275 for nine off their 50 overs and then dismissing Kent for 170 off 39.4 overs.Of more significance, however, was Powell’s incredible of form as he carved out a delightful 106 – his fourth score over fifty in as many innings.The 26-year-old, who only returned to cricket in earnest this season after a self-imposed two-year break, now has 429 runs at an average of nearly 86.He also gathered back-to-back hundreds West Indies Under-19s and Windward Islands Volcanoes last week.On Saturday, he was once against shone in an innings that lasted 111 deliveries and included five fours and four sixes.He got support from all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall who smashed 43 from 28 balls with three fours and three sixes and tail-ender Gavin Tonge, whose cameo unbeaten 28 from 15 balls – with two fours and two sixes – gave the innings a late surge.Jamaican Nkrumah Bonner and opener Montcin Hodge both chipped in with 24.Fast bowler Matt Coles was the best bowler with four for 52 while veteran off-spinner James Tredwell (2-45) and seamer Calum Haggett (2-55) weighed in with two wickets apiece.Opting to bat first at Coolidge Cricket Ground, Hurricanes prospered through a 70-run first wicket stand between Powell and Hodge, and a 74-run second wicket partnership between Powell and Bonner.Powell, using his usual free-scoring approach, raised his half-century in the 20th over off 59 balls and then used another 50 balls to reach triple figures, bringing up the landmark in the 36th over.He lost Hodge in the 17th over brilliantly caught by Coles off seamer Darren Stevens and Bonner to Tredwell in the 34th, before he finally perished 19 balls later in the 37th over.Cornwall then combined with Jahmar Hamilton (15) to keep the momentum going.In reply, Kent found themselves undermined by West Indies speedster Alzarri Joseph who claimed three for 62 and the left-arm spin pair of Jason Campbell (2-26) and Akeal Hosein (2-28) who took two wickets apiece.The English county side were slumping at 60 for four in the 15th over until Alex Blake, who top-scored with 44 off 76 balls with five fours and six, put on 41 for the fifth wicket with Will Gidman (20) to prop up the innings.Once the partnership was broken, wickets tumbled and 31-run stands for the seventh wicket between Blake and Calum Haggett (8), and for the ninth wicket between Coles and Tredwell (seven not out), proved in vain.HURRICANESM Hodge c Coles b Stevens 24*K Powell c Blake b Coles 106N Bonner c Qayyum b Tredwell 24C Hughes c and b Coles 9R Cornwall c Blake b Haggett 43+J Hamilton c Bell-Drummond b Tredwell 15O Peters c Dickson b Coles 7A Hosein c and b Coles 2G Tonge not out 28A Joseph c Dickson b Haggett 6J Campbell not out 1Extras (lb5, w5) 10TOTAL (9 wkts, 50 overs) 275Fall of wickets: 1-70, 2-144, 3-170, 4-170, 5-221, 6-233, 7-236, 8-261, 10-267.Bowling: Haggett 10-0-55-1 (w1), Coles 10-0-52-4 (w3), Tredwell 6-0-45-2, Gidman 7-0-34-0, Stevens 10-0-36-1 (w1), Qayyum 7-0-48-0.KENTD Bell-Drummond c Hosein b Joseph 14S Dickson lbw b Tonge 5*S Northeast run out 17D Stevens c Cornwall b Hosein 20W Gidman c and b Hosein 20A Blake b Joseph 44+A Rouse c wkp Hamilton b Cornwall 2C Haggett c Cornwall b Campbell 8M Coles c Tonge b Campbell 27J Tredwell not out 7I Qayyum b Joseph 0Extras (lb2, w4) 6TOTAL (all out, 39.3 overs) 170Fall of wickets: 1-21, 2-21, 3-57, 4-60, 5-101, 6-104, 7-135, 8-137, 9-168, 10-170.Bowling: Tonge 5-0-26-1, Joseph 9.3-0-62-3 (w2), Hosein 10-1-28-2 (w2), Cornwall 10-0-26-1, Campbell 5-0-26-2.last_img read more
