USG reveals mental health initiatives, passes SLAC resolution

first_imgSenators Emily Johnson, Chris McMorran and Benjamin Shiff are in the process of approving a task force of eight students to collaborate with Engemann Student Health Center on redesigning the mental health resources page on its website. Chuang met with Dr. Sarah Van Orman, chief health officer and associate vice provost for student affairs, and Dr. Robert Mendola, executive director and division chief of student mental health, to discuss the issue. Since then, the official billing dispute form has been added to the USC Student Health website and a line concerning the dispute process has been included at the end of the letter sent when charges are sent to the student account. Undergraduate Student Government updated a statement released Sept. 10 reaffirming its commitment to campus mental health to include specific ongoing senate initiatives during a Senate meeting Tuesday.  Sen. Angela Chuang said the statement’s updates help promote concrete initiatives USG is working on to improve mental health issues on campus.  Eight projects sponsored by USG senators were included in the updated statement. One initiative, spearheaded by Chuang, aims to increase transparency in the dispute process for the $20 missed mental health counseling appointment fee. While there has been a dispute process in place, Chuang said many students are unaware of its existence. Undergraduate Student Government senators passed a resolution Tuesday formalizing USC’s involvement in the Student Leadership Association of California, which holds a conference that brings together student government leaders from across 15 universities. (Elshaddai Mulugeta | Daily Trojan) USC, Pitzer and Occidental initially created SLAC in 2018 to build connections between student leaders across California. The resolution will formalize its support for the association of student governments. The task force intends to incorporate student perspectives on website changes and informational clarity. The senators are currently revising their initial proposal for the taskforce and expect it to be approved in the next few weeks. Aside from the revised statement, USG unanimously passed a resolution to continue its involvement in the Student Leadership Association of California during Tuesday’s meeting. The resolution follows USG’s participation in a SLAC conference Oct. 6, where student government representatives from 15 universities met at UCLA to discuss issues of administrative transparency and student engagement.  “We felt that [the website] wasn’t as intuitive as it could be … it seems very text-heavy,” Johnson said. “It wasn’t as approachable as it could be.”  “We really want to ensure that students recognize that we’re here to support them, and we’re here to work on projects that will benefit them and will hopefully support them regarding mental health,” Chuang said. last_img read more

FATHER’S TIME: After 2 years at Denver, Brendan Bomberry realized he had to be closer to his son

first_imgAlly Moreo | Photo EditorIn the winter, Brendan’s family filled the rink with ice for hockey. In the spring, the neighborhood left it empty for box lacrosse.Juggling lacrosse, Brittany, Jagger and everything else became an increasingly imposing challenge. Brendan played in four games after North Carolina, but felt distracted. He struggled to keep up in class, particularly with Analytical Inquiry II.The computer science course asked students to write code for video game software. Brendan’s preoccupation with his family contributed to him missing the term’s class drop deadline. He eventually failed the class, rendering him ineligible for the season’s final 11 games. He couldn’t travel for road games, meaning some weekends suddenly became free.Four or five times from March until May, Brendan flew from Denver to Syracuse to see his girlfriend and son. Brendan felt obligated to be there for ailing Jagger.“(Ineligibility) was a blessing in disguise,” Brendan said.Brendan met Jagger and Brittany in Ontario once the hospital released them. The family drove to Philadelphia to see Denver play in the Final Four. He couldn’t play but wanted to support his teammates. He also wanted Jagger to have that memory.The Pioneers that weekend claimed their first national title as Tierney realized the fantasy he’d pitched Brendan long ago. The championship ring now sits at Amy and Patrick’s house alongside the rest of Brendan’s trophies.The following summer, Brendan spent nearly every day with his girlfriend and son. He struggled leaving for school in the fall, overcome with emotion. He had decided to drive to Denver for sophomore year. Before he set out, Brendan told Brittany he wouldn’t go without her and Jagger. Within an hour, the three left together. Brittany finally told her mother as they approached the U.S. border.The three lived with five DU teammates for about two months. The other players, said Matt Jones, felt like uncles. They helped however they could, but eventually the three moved into their own apartment.“We’re super spontaneous,” Brittany said. “Everything’s not really planned with us.”Patrick had told Brendan before he left to be careful of his actions. No matter what, he said, Jagger will be watching. Brendan has since cut back on occasional trips to the bar, and now brings Jagger along when he hangs out with friends. They mostly stay in and play Xbox One games, like NBA 2K or NHL.In moving to Denver, Brittany had put her modeling career on hold. She felt comfortable with the sacrifice, but the Colorado fashion scene barely existed. She modeled for one show in nine months and thought, for her career to thrive, she needed to live near a vogue hub like Toronto. Anxiety built up in Brendan as he knew Brittany didn’t want to live in Denver for a second year.The strain of two dreams and one child made it impossible to be a couple. This past summer, Brittany and Brendan stopped dating. They currently share custody of Jagger and remain in close contact.“For him to excel, Jagger’s got to be a part of his life,” grandfather Scott Smith said. “He can’t go away and not see Jagger for weeks or months at a time. He just wouldn’t be the same person or the same player because of that.” OHSWEKEN, Ontario — Brendan Bomberry’s phone wouldn’t stop buzzing. So many texts. So many calls. The constant hum prevented him from opening the lock screen.Sitting in the airplane seat on a tarmac in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, on Feb. 26, 2015, Brendan’s new life began. He had become a father.“One of the happiest days of my life, him being born,” Brendan said, “but it was also one of the scariest.”Jagger, his son, arrived hundreds of miles away and shockingly early. The boy was born three months prematurely — so early that Brendan hadn’t told most of his teammates and coaches that his girlfriend Brittany Sobeski was pregnant. She had stopped in Syracuse to meet up with Brendan’s relatives for a drive from Ontario to Chapel Hill, where Brendan’s Denver lacrosse team would play North Carolina, when the contractions started.Mothers of premature babies typically receive steroids for the child’s heart and lungs. But Brittany’s labor started as nurses changed shifts, and it moved quickly. She panicked. St. Joseph’s Hospital doctors performed an emergency cesarean section surgery. The whole process took 30 minutes.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Chaos,” Brittany said.Brendan didn’t want to play against the Tar Heels, but did at Brittany’s urging. He scored two goals and then immediately flew to Syracuse. He saw his newborn son battling through complications from his premature birth. Jagger weighed 2 pounds, 11 ounces. For the first month, his heart stopped once a day and once a night. Brittany asked nurses if her son would survive. They couldn’t tell her. They didn’t know.Brittany lived at the hospital with Jagger for 64 days. She never left for more than a few hours at a time. Those few moments she spent with Brendan’s aunt Cheri and uncle Marshall, the planned copilots for the Chapel Hill trip. But Brittany always returned to Jagger quickly. Otherwise, anxiety kicked in.After a few days in Syracuse, Brendan had to return to school at Denver. He and Brittany FaceTimed constantly as the father waited for news of his son. As days became weeks and weeks became months, Brendan realized monitoring another human life was now his life. He had to grow up.In summer 2016, after two trying years at Denver and just before the transfer deadline, he made a decision for his family. Jagger being born in Syracuse was a sign, he thought. It must be. Brendan decided to finally join the team he’d admired since childhood.Lacrosse had been the one constant in his life since Jagger’s birth. The sport, in Mohawk tradition, serves as the thread tying the living to their ancestors. He found comfort in the familiarity and led the nation in man-up goals with 11 last season as a part of his 33 points. To reconnect with his family though, he needed to make a change. Now, the junior attack will be a key cog in Syracuse’s offense this season.“SU is the only place that would have taken me away from Denver,” Brendan said.,Depending on the season, the surface behind Brendan’s childhood home functions as a box lacrosse field or an ice hockey rink. It was one of the most popular spots in his neighborhood because all the other kids in his family came over to play. From there, you can see the adjacent houses belonging to his grandparents and an aunt.That family community helped Brendan’s parents, Amy and Patrick, raise their first-born son when they had him as teenagers. Brendan spent a lot of time with his cousins as his parents worked to sustain the family. After he was born, Patrick worked through high school with two part-time jobs, one as a factory security guard and the other at a gas station. Amy was in college with an active baby boy.As a child, Brendan’s routine became wake up, grab a stick and play on the rink. Brendan’s grandparents set a curfew because they couldn’t sleep when pucks and balls smashed off the boards late at night. The kids adapted, forced to be accurate: Hit the net or cause a ruckus.Family and lacrosse collided for Brendan in Syracuse. He often drove four hours to the Carrier Dome to watch his uncle Marshall, a key figure in the Orange’s 2000 national championship. He always wanted to play in the Dome. When he transferred to SU, Brendan wanted to wear No. 43, Marshall’s number. But it was taken. Still, his family and his heritage serve as his primary motivation.“Before I step on the field,” Brendan said, “that’s what I think about. ‘Who am I playing for? Why am I doing this?’ I think of my family, my son, the Creator and my people.”Brendan hadn’t chosen Syracuse at first for a few reasons. Part of it was that he wanted to play at the same school as Zach Miller, his best friend and high school teammate. He was also intrigued by the Denver staff. Head coach Bill Tierney, a six-time national champion at Princeton, pitched Brendan on taking an unproven Pioneers program to unprecedented heights.While they supported Brendan, the decision surprised several family members. Many worried that living three-quarters across the continent would be too far. But Brendan, not yet burdened with responsibility, wanted to see something new.At first, Brendan was shy as he acclimated to DU. Teammate Matt Jones could tell his roommate was far away from his family for the first time. He wasn’t uncomfortable because of where he was, but because of where he wasn’t.“I really took for granted my time I spent with (family),” Brendan said. “It really hit home that I’m a few thousand miles away. I started to get really homesick, and things just kind of (created a) domino effect from there.”Right around the time Brendan felt comfortable in his first trimester, Brittany entered one of her own. Courtesy of Brittany SobeskiJagger Bomberry spent 64 days at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Syracuse after being born about three months premature in February 2015.Whenever Brendan and Brittany drove past the Carrier Dome on the way to or from St. Joseph’s Hospital, Brendan would say, “I hope I can play there one day.”Brendan had tried two or three times to call coach Tierney and tell him he intended to transfer, but the courage to do so never appeared. It was one of the harder things he’d ever had to do. The call disappointed Tierney, but Brendan recalled him understanding. Now, for the first time, Brendan will play in the city most tied to him and his son.Jagger remains the primary reason for Brendan’s transfer, but he also said that he would’ve liked more playing time than he received as a second-line midfielder. (Tierney declined to be interviewed for this story.)Since transferring, Brendan’s five younger brothers and sisters, ranging from 5 to 15 years old, no longer ask, “How many sleeps until Brendan comes home?”Unlike when he was at Denver, Brendan’s siblings now know the answer: not many. He visited multiple times a month last semester, and while that number will lessen during lacrosse season, he’s still only a four-hour car ride away.That also means Jagger. Brendan’s absence sometimes makes it harder for him, Brittany said, when other dads pick up their kids at daycare.“Every time I feel Jagger misses him, I feel guilty and I come right to Syracuse,” Brittany said. “I want Jagger to be happy, and I want Jagger to be with his dad.”Brendan’s adjusted to the new school by bringing Jagger along while hanging out with teammates. When Brittany and his son are in Syracuse, the three often eat out on Erie Boulevard with senior midfielder Sergio Salcido. Once, at Moe’s, Jagger chugged a medium sweet tea “faster than I’ve ever seen someone chug before,” Salcido said, laughing.Sophomore attack Nate Solomon often has the three over to his South Campus apartment and jokes he likes the son more than the father. The parents once had to calm Jagger down because a fake rhino paperweight in the bathroom freaked him out. Looking back, Solomon and Salcido said, Jagger helped the transfer not feel like one.Brendan has big dreams for him and his new teammates. He is someone who has already watched teammates celebrate a national championship. He’d like to do it again, but this time play with them. And, most of all, he wants Jagger with him.,Brendan drove the back roads on the way home at the end of fall semester. He makes rides in his Lincoln MKZ feel shorter by singing along to country music. At the Canadian border, the two-lane highway became a single lane.He passed farmland, wind turbines and snow-covered empty plains. He stopped once in two hours, for a school bus dropping a kid off at an intersection. The further he drove, the more purple flags flew printed with the Hiawatha belt.They reminded Brendan where he came from: his family, his ancestors, his people. The ones he plays for. They’re what make an end-of-semester, four-hour car ride possible, as opposed to a four-hour flight.Brendan arrived at his Ohsweken home, and no one seemed surprised to see him. Siblings and cousins continued their War card game. Jagger walked over wearing a T-shirt that read, “Dad’s All-Star MVP.” A wooden lacrosse stick sat atop the living room mantle.Amy and Patrick put everything away they thought Jagger could throw. He found a mini hockey stick and a ball, anyway, and began swinging it all over the family’s living room.“Whoa,” Brendan said. “Careful!”This is what he missed seeing before the transfer. Brendan scooped up his son, who tugged at his short-sleeved camouflage shirt. Then he reached for his dad’s backward Oakley baseball cap.“He knows if I have a hat on, I’m probably leaving,” Brendan said, “so he takes it off.”But now when Brendan leaves, Jagger knows he’ll be back soon.Banner photo by Ally Moreo | Photo Editor,Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.last_img read more

Follow The Trace: Winning supersedes all, writes Oral Tracey

first_imgThere is a very simple personal philosophy that guides my perspective on all sports: ‘winning supersedes all’. After all, sports in general and especially professional and international sports is a results business. The basic principle of all sporting activity is built on teams and individuals competing against each other with the singular objective of winning. There have been lots of reasons to be critical of West Indies cricket in recent years. The administrators and the players have deservedly felt the wrath of despondent Caribbean cricket fans, but things have taken a dramatic twist in a matter of a few weeks. The West Indies have become Under-19 world champions, World T20 men’s champions, World T20 women’s champions. In remaining consistent, we have to now give credit to the same administration and, by and large, the same players, for bringing glory to the region. It would be downright hypocritical to blame the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and the players when things go wrong and refuse to heap praises on the same board and the same players when things go right. The fact of the matter is that West Indies cricket has not enjoyed this kind of widespread and consistent success for the past two decades. The interest, enthusiasm, and passion ignited by the recent success of our now three world champion teams have provided a sobering reminder of what West Indies cricket means to the people of the region. This dramatic and sudden change of mood and attitude is down to one thing only success on the on field of play. The feel-good emotions spreading across the region has little to do with likeness for the WICB president, Mr Dave Cameron, or the deficiencies in the governance structure of our cricket. Winning these three titles is what it’s all about. It is much more important that West Indies cricket regain its relevance and its respect, than having a likable and affable board president. If Mr Cameron’s seemingly obnoxious and arrogant style of leadership serves as motivation to the players in helping them focus and perform and win like they have done, maybe we should consider making Mr Cameron president for life. The board president has been the target harsh criticism from many quarters ever since the ill-fated tour of India back in 2013. The US$40 million-plus debt owed to the BCCI as a result of that fiasco is as much about the West Indies players walking off the tour as it was about Mr Cameron’s handling of the incident. In all fairness to Mr Cameron’s, his critics, including some of the very senior players in the team, must now also recognise that it is the same person who is presiding over the affairs of the region’s cricket while we are having all of this international success. Let us not conveniently ignore the fact that the West Indies are on top of the world in the most rapidly growing format of the game. Our weakness in Test cricket is as a result of the natural evolution of the game, which is rendering the longer versions of the game redundant. Neither Mr Cameron nor the International Cricket Council (ICC) can reverse this process of evolution. Indeed, the administration deserves credit for not being left behind, but instead, embracing the new craze as the region continues to churn out the most talented individual players in this format of the game, while boasting the world champions for both men and women, another index of T20 cricket saving our cricket rather than it destroying our cricket. But for the rapid emergence of this format, West Indies cricket would by now be further condemned to the doldrums of irrelevance. I suggest we put on hold this grand ‘get rid of Dave Cameron campaign’, assuming we are all about performance and winning and getting West Indies cricket back on top, which is exactly where it is right now. Again, the West Indies are winners, and after all, WINNING SUPERSEDES ALL.last_img read more

Artist Kevin Sharkey to pay €5,000 in damages in ‘tweet’ defamation case

first_imgA man has been awarded €5,000 in damages against Kevin Sharkey, a famous Irish painter who was brought up in Killybegs.In a case heard today in the Circuit Civil Court, quantity surveyor Garrett O’Mahony from Co. Kerry was granted the damages over Twitter posts in which he claimed the artist had called him a racist.The court had previously heard that the case arose after Mr O’Mahony replied to a comment posted on the artist’s alleged Twitter account. Sharkey allegedly replied with a tweet that O’Mahony’s counsel claimed was “outrageous, completely out of context, deeply offensive and highly defamatory, calling him a racist.”O’Mahony was granted injunctions against Sharkey two years previously to remove the allegedly defamatory comment from Twitter.The artist was not present in court. The only correspondence from Sharkey relating to the case was an email claiming that the Twitter account the comment was posted on was fake.The tweet was removed two weeks after legal proceedings were brought against Sharkey in 2014, but had been visible online for a month. It was claimed O’Mahony’s reputation was damaged as a result of the comments, as he had around 1,400 followers when it was posted and his profile was used for business communications. Mr O’Mahony had been granted a judgment in default of appearance and today’s case was one of assessment of damages only, the counsel said.As well as €5,000 damages, Judge Groarke awarded O’Mahony his legal fees, which could cost Sharkey another €10,000.Artist Kevin Sharkey to pay €5,000 in damages in ‘tweet’ defamation case was last modified: October 12th, 2016 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Tying the Window-Purchase Tax Credit to Energy Star – One More Time

first_imgOne of the good things about recently proposed legislation that would tie federal tax credits on the purchase price of windows to Energy Star criteria is that the legislation makes ecological and economic sense.The new bill, proposed by Senators Jay Rockefeller and Chuck Grassley, would modify a provision that, since it took effect on June 1, has offered consumers a tax credit of 30%, up to $1,500, on the purchase price of windows that have a solar-heat-gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.30 or less and a U-factor of 0.30 or less. It’s called the “30-30” standard and it’s relatively simple to apply. The problem is it doesn’t offer consumers who live in cold climates the flexibility they need to achieve maximum energy efficiency – through wintertime solar heat gain – from their purchase.Rockefeller and Grassley, to their credit, want to peg the tax credit to Energy Star requirements that are scheduled to take effect January 4, 2010. The positive, logical thing about these new Energy Star criteria is that they are climate-specific, with, for example, a SHGC “equivalent energy performance” requirement for the northern climate zone of at least 0.35 and corresponding U-factor equivalent of 0.31; for a SHGC performance equivalent of at least 0.40, however, the corresponding U-factor equivalent is 0.32 for that climate zone.For southern climates, meanwhile, the U-factor maximum is 0.60 and the SHGC is 0.27. Separate criteria also are established for window performance in “north-central” and “south-central” climate zones.Trade-group backingLast week, the Window and Door Manufacturers Association weighed in on the issue with a press release that commended the senators while it criticized the 30-30 standard.“The one-size-fits-all approach of the current tax credit fails to recognize that different regions of the country require different standards to achieve improved energy efficiency depending on climate. A window, door or skylight designed to protect from the cold winters of the north is not ideal to face the heat of a southern summer,” said WDMA Executive Vice President Michael O’Brien. “Established Energy Star standards, widely recognized by consumers, builders and retailers, recognize these differences and have different requirements for four different regions.”One small irony here is that the tax credit was tied to Energy Star’s regionally based criteria before the 30-30 standard took effect on June 1. The Rockefeller-Grassley bill simply brings Energy Star back into the equation, albeit in the updated form set to roll out on January 4.The availability catchAnother irony is that obtaining high-solar-gain windows can be a challenge in the U.S., even in northern markets. As GBA’s Martin Holladay pointed out in a GBA post on July 31, many window manufacturers in the U.S. have emphasized low-solar-gain glazing in both their product lineups and marketing, an approach that simplifies things for distributors and salespeople but can confound customers who want to make the most of window installations in cold climates.Martin cited the tribulations of Scott Pigg, a senior project manager at the Energy Center of Wisconsin who had done an analysis using RESFEN, a software program developed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to measure the performance of prospective window installations in specific settings. Pigg intended to use the analysis for guidance in selecting windows for his own home, but was flummoxed in his attempt to buy windows, from Marvin Windows and Doors, with a hard-coat low-e glazing option that would increase their SHGC.“I asked my contractor, and my contractor had no idea what I wanted,” Pigg told GBA. “Then he came back to me and said it would take three extra weeks. Then he said it couldn’t be done. I didn’t believe it, so I called Marvin directly. They said it was possible. Then my contractor said it would cost an extra $200 per window. I asked Marvin about that, and they wouldn’t give me any pricing information.”Pigg finally gave up and bought low-solar-gain glazing. Perhaps, if the Rockefeller-Grassley bill passes, the return to Energy Star standards will encourage manufacturers in the U.S. to make high-solar-gain glazing more readily available, and make experiences like Pigg’s a thing of the past.last_img read more
