first_img– Advertisement – Tarnawa could have gone for the Filly & Mare Turf, but connections chose this stiffer task for the in-form three-year-old, who had won the Prix Vermeille and Prix de l’Opera on her last two starts for her owner the Aga Khan.Keane had her at the back of the field as Channel Maker and United set the pace, with Aidan O’Brien’s Magical in a handy position not far off the lead.Channel Maker set sail for home at the top of the straight, but the pack closed in a furlong out with Keane producing Tarnawa with a perfectly-timed run that saw her keep Magical at bay by a length. Channel Maker was another length away in third.- Advertisement – Keane said: “Mr Weld gave me a call and told me what was happening, and then he rang again today and said it would have been lovely if I’d sat on her before, because she takes a bit of knowing.“They had worked with her at the stalls while she had been here and when I spoke to Oisin Orr he said the filly had done one of her pieces of work before she left Ireland.“It’s been a brilliant year, it’s lovely to get this victory going home and it’s definitely the icing on the cake for the year we’ve had.” Dermot Weld and Colin Keane teamed up to great effect as Tarnawa stormed to victory in the Breeders’ Cup Turf at Keeneland.Crowned champion jockey once again in Ireland, Keane was replacing the luckless Christophe Soumillon, who also missed a winning ride on Order Of Australia in the Breeders’ Cup Mile. It was his first ride for veteran trainer Weld, who was also enjoying his first Breeders’ Cup success.- Advertisement – Weld’s son, Mark, said: “It doesn’t get any bigger than this. These overseas prestige races in the autumn are what we train them for and I’m sad my dad is not here, but the Covid situation put paid to that.“It was Colin’s first ride for us and there were no instructions. We left it completely up to him and as soon as I saw Colin pull her out, it was a like a jet seeing a runway and off she went.“My father has been a long-standing supporter of American racing ever since Go And Go won the Belmont back in 1990. He worked in the United States as a boy and it’s very special to him.”- Advertisement –last_img read more

first_img The 22-year-old, who qualifies via his maternal grandmother, was handed a first senior call-up for Wednesday night’s friendly in Cyprus and is thrilled to be given a chance on the international stage. He started his career at Southampton’s renowned academy, where he was a year above England and Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but dropped down to Sky Bet League One when he was released by the Saints. Press Association Reeves has taken well to the task, scoring 10 times this season from midfield and catching the eye of Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill in the process. “My nan is from Fermanagh and a lot of my Mum’s side still live over there, so I always knew it was a chance for me to play for Northern Ireland,” he told Press Association Sport. “I was ecstatic when I got the call, so was my family and everyone at home too. “It would be unbelievable to play international football; it’s an incredible opportunity and it would be an honour to represent Northern Ireland.” Ironically, Reeves’ new international captain, Steven Davis, is one of the men who forced him out of St Mary’s when he was signed to bolster the club’s Premier League credentials in 2012. Reeves holds no grudges on that front, though, and is hoping his week away with the likes of Davis and Chris Brunt can help him become a better player. “I trained with ‘Davo’ a lot at Southampton and it’s good to know someone when you’re coming into a squad and meeting a lot of new people,” he said. “He’s an easy guy to get on with, everyone likes Steven. You can always improve and training with these players can only help. “Working with guys from different styles and different cultures is good, especially when they’re international players. “You need to learn from them and then take it back with you and improve.” center_img MK Dons midfielder Ben Reeves is eager to make the most of his “incredible opportunity” with Northern Ireland.last_img read more

The handicapper made us go this way so he’ll take his chance,” said the County Cork handler. “We’re hopeful he’ll get the trip. Others in the race are the same, stepping up to three miles, so we’re all in the same boat, but he certainly wasn’t stopping the last day over two-and-a-half. “He stayed the trip at Mallow (Cork) well that day, so we’re hopeful. “He handled the ground well that day.

first_imgVisiting professors Amir Sharifi and Asli Ü Bâli discussed the relationship between the Turkish state and its Kurdish minority population at the Annenberg School for Communication on Thursday evening.Adriana Shen | Daily Trojan An ongoing conflict · Amir Sharifi, director of the Kurdish Human Rights Advocacy Group, spoke on the need for changes at the local level in Turkey.The discussion, hosted by the USC Middle East Studies Program and moderated by Evîn Cheikosman, a M.A. candidate in the USC Center on Public Diplomacy, was an opportunity for the crowd in attendance to reinforce their knowledge on the complicated social and political relationships between the Turkish state and Kurds, from their first butting of heads after World War I  to today.Sharifi is the director of the Kurdish Human Rights Advocacy Group, president of the Kurdish American Education Society and lecturer of linguistics at California State University, Long Beach. Bâli is a professor of law at the UCLA School of Law who teaches public international law, international human rights and a seminar on the laws of war.The Kurdish people are an ethnic group from the Mesopotamian Plains, an area that encompasses parts of many Middle-Eastern nations, such as south-eastern Turkey, north-eastern Syria, northern Iraq, north-western Iran and south-western Armenia.Despite their dispersal between these nations, the Kurds share a common language and culture that transcends man-made borders. This has led many Kurds, beginning in the 20th century, to advocate for the establishment of an independent Kurdish state, putting them at direct odds with the newly formed Turkish state after World War I.“At the founding of the Turkish state, there was absolutely no recognition of such a thing as a Kurdish community,” Bâli said. “In fact to this day you will hear Turkish nationalists recite the same narrative that was present at that time at the founding that there is no such thing as a Kurdish population, there is only Mountain Kurds, [a derogatory term].”Today, Kurds make up 20 percent of Turkey’s population, but despite this, only just managed to gain any sort of representation in the government in the form of the People’s Democratic Party (HDP), a left-wing, progressive and pro-Kurdish party. However, this movement has taken a step back following the recent coup attempt in Turkey this past July.“You see the Turkish government opportunistically using the purges to simply lump in anybody who is politically aligned with a pro-Kurdish position,” Bâli said. “Most recently and most prominently, of course, with the removal of 24 elected mayors in the Southeastern provinces of Turkey from their office and their detainship [sic] and prosecution, allegedly as part of some sort of terrorist conspiracy.”Sharifi, himself a diasporic Kurd from Iran, believes that while Kurds in areas like Turkey have a long way to go before they are free of persecution and that changes needs to occur in local municipalities, rather than broad sweeping change at the national level.“Democracy is to be institutionalized, if you mention I think, for instance in Turkey, the HDP played such a significant role through the municipalities,” Shafri said. “And I think this is something historic about the Kurds. Through these communal formations of political and civil representations, they can primarily have a popular participatory mechanism whereby they would be exercising their right to self-assertion and right to self-determination.”Despite the long-held animosity between Turkey and its Kurdish citizens, Bâli believes that there is hope for a progressive future in Turkey that fosters greater cooperation between the two groups.“An interesting phenomenon that we’ve seen over the last decade is the emergence of a Kurdish voice in Turkey that isn’t just a voice about ethnic identitarian concerns, but about a political formation,” Bâli said. “[It is] a progressive platform that encompasses many more things — LGBT communities, gender equality, environmental protections — [which] many Turks … disgusted with the mainstream existing political formations might be prepared to sign up for.”last_img read more

first_imgPhoto from IFC websiteThe Interfraternity Council sent out a letter Thursday to the USC community expressing its disagreement with the Academic Senate’s resolution from 2015 to defer Greek recruitment to spring.The letter said that the IFC leadership met with USC administrators on Sept. 13 who again asked to push Greek recruitment to the spring semester, citing mental health concerns among first-year students.“While we take these concerns to heart, the Interfraternity Council does not believe that the administration’s recruitment eligibility proposal will combat issues of academic stress,” the letter read.The letter explained that research suggested that anxiety and stress from first-year students typically stemmed from a sense of loneliness, and that deferring fraternity and sorority recruitment to the spring would remove a support system already in place by the organizations.“I don’t think it’s USC who should make a decision whether [first-year students] should join Greek life or not,” said Alexander Lorenzo Cuoci, president of the IFC.Cuoci said that while he rushed during his spring semester freshman year, he understands that students come to USC ready to join Greek organizations. He said that the IFC is willing to have proactive conversations to offer viable solutions for the issues listed by administrators.In the letter, the IFC leadership said they take responsibility for issues in the community and will work to create a safe environment for first-year students.Cuoci added that Greek organization members will be emailing President C. L. Max Nikias, Vice President for Student Affairs Ainsley Carry and Provost Michael Quick urging them to reconsider their decision.“This [letter] is the last push to make sure that our voices are heard and that the administration is not just making decisions without hearing our voice,” Cuoci said.Vice President for Student Affairs Ainsley Carry responded to the letter with a statement emailed to the Daily Trojan following the time of publication.Carry requested the statement be published in its entirety:“To be clear, the proposal is not deferred recruitment. The University is accepting input on policy to require a minimum grade point average of 2.5 and completion of 12 units of course work at USC before going through the rigorous recruitment and new-members education process of joining a Greek-letter organization. In other words, allow first-year students one semester (90 days) to get adjusted to college academics and social life before going through the rigors of a 15-week new member education process. Under this policy, Greek-letter organizations would still be permitted to welcome new members in the fall semester that have at least a 2.5 GPA and completed 12 units at USC – sophomores, juniors, seniors, and spring admits who are in their second semester. In the following spring Greek-letter organizations would be able to recruit first-year students that have completed a semester at USC. We are examining implications of this policy for transfer students. I ask: “What is so unreasonable about giving first-year students 90 days to adjust to college life?” USC is not the first school in the country to prioritize the health, wellness and safety of new students by allowing them time to adjust to college life, many of our peers and aspirant institutions have similar policies.  For the past two weeks I have been sincerely listening to leaders of Greek councils and organizations on this matter and I will do so until a decision is finalized. The first year of college is the toughest. We owe our new students every opportunity to be successful in and outside the classroom. When there are opportunities to consider changes that may improve the quality of the student experience, reduce stress and anxiety, and give students the time they need to adjust to college life, I will examine it. USC remains committed to prioritizing student health and wellbeing.”last_img read more
