first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Arsene Wenger celebrated the 21st anniversary of his arrival at Arsenal in winning style as the Gunners cruised to a 2-0 victory over Brighton on Sunday.There are many reasons for Arsenal fans to look back fondly on the day Wenger was hired but, after several years of underachievement, the Frenchman finds himself engaged in a fight to restore his tarnished reputation.It is too early to predict whether Arsenal can end their 13-year wait to win a fourth Premier League title under Wenger, but there were some encouraging signs as Brighton were put to the sword at the Emirates Stadium.Nacho Monreal opened the scoring in the first half before Alex Iwobi, converting Alexis Sanchez’s majestic assist, wrapped up the points after the interval.Arsenal’s sixth win from their last seven matches in all competitions moved them to within six points of leaders Manchester City heading into the international break.Fittingly, Wenger marked his milestone date with a notable record of his own.Brighton are the 45th different Premier League club to be defeated by Arsenal since Wenger took over in 1996, breaking the record he shared with Manchester United legend Alex Ferguson. Just 64 hours after winning at Belarus’s Bate Borisov in the Europa League on Thursday, Arsenal were back in action and Wenger freshened up his side by making nine changes.Wenger this week claimed Arsenal are a more unified team since the transfer window closed just after their humiliating 4-0 defeat at Liverpool.There was ample evidence to support that theory as his team tore into Brighton right from the start.Alexandre Lacazette almost gave them the perfect start after just 65 seconds when his fierce drive flashed past Albion goalkeeper Mat Ryan, only to cannon back off a post. Albion striker Tomer Hemed was serving the first of a three-game suspension, so Izzy Brown started up front and the youngster went close with a header from Pascal Gross’s free-kick.That effort aside, it was one way traffic as Wenger’s men left Brighton trailing in their wake time and again.– Irrepressible –Sanchez and Iwobi tested Ryan from long-range before Monreal gave Arsenal the lead in the 16th minute.Granit Xhaka’s free-kick to the far post was headed back by Lacazette and after Shkodran Mustafi had his shot cleared off the line, Monreal chested down and fired home from 10 yards.It was Monreal’s first league goal for Arsenal since March 2013 and the Spanish defender celebrated with a fist-pumping roar of delight.Solly March nearly silenced Arsenal’s cheers moments later when he unleashed a powerful 20-yard shot that crashed back off a post.The Gunners should have doubled their lead before half-time when Brighton defender Lewis Dunk slipped, putting Lacazette through on goal.But Lacazette let Brighton off the hook with a tame shot straight at Ryan, while Aaron Ramsey saw his low strike repelled by the Australian keeper following an incisive Arsenal counter.Those misses didn’t prove a source of regret as Sanchez produced a sublime contribution to set up Iwobi’s first goal since January in the 56th minute.Exchanging passes in a blur of movement, Ramsey and Lacazette worked the ball smoothly into Sanchez inside the penalty area.Faced with three Albion defenders, Sanchez knew a shot would be blocked, so he instinctively guided a back-heel towards the unmarked Iwobi, who had the simple task of firing home from eight yards.Sanchez was in irrepressible mood and it took a combined of Dunk and Ryan to keep out his goal-bound shot, before Sead Kolasinac’s header was cleared off the line by March.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (April 2, 2016)–Longshot Thess Is Awesome stunned an on-track crowd of 13,724 in winning Saturday’s Grade I, $100,000 HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Darley Award Stakes for Arabian-bred older horses by 1 ¼ lengths over heavily favored Paddy’s Day while covering 1 1/16 miles in 1:54.75. On the lead gate to wire under Travis Wales and trained by Lynn Ashby, Thess Is Awesome reversed a 38 length defeat at the hands of the favorite on March 5 to win at odds of 46-1.“He’s never shown his true potential,” said Wales. “I was waiting for his day, the day when he could challenge the best. Today was that day and he loves Santa Anita’s track. He was comfortable on the lead and he just opened up from there.”The fourth-longest shot in a field of 10, Thess Is Awesome paid $94.20, $20.80 and $8.00. Owned by Cre-Run Enterprises, LLC, the 6-year-old Virginia-bred horse notched his fifth win from 13 starts, and with the winner’s share of $49,500, he increased his career earnings to $118,881.“He had some bad habits,” said Ashby. “He would duck in and duck out…I’m so proud of him. There must be a lot of angels here today. This is wonderful.”Off at 4-5, Paddy’s Day was third, three lengths off the winner turning for home, but couldn’t get the job done under Kelsi Purcell as he finished a head in front of Easter Man. Paddy’s Day, who had over $72,000 bet to win on him, paid $3.00 and $2.20.Ridden by Edwin Maldonado, Easter Man was second turning for home and tired late to finish third. Off at 6-1, he paid $3.20 to show.Fractions on the race were 25.12, 51.03, 1:18.56 and 1:47.22.last_img read more

first_imgDonegal Senator Brian O Domhnaill has repaid the Oireachtas €3,434 for wrongly-claimed expenses, it has been revealed.Senator O’Domhnaill€The Fianna Fail politician is already being investigated by the Standards in Public Office Commission for alleged duplication of expenses claims.A total of five members of the Oireachtas repaid €4,992 in claims after the audit, which was carried out by Mazars. Fianna Fáil Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill, who was investigated by the commission over travel and subsistence claims made between 2006 and 2007 when he was a county councillor, accounted for €3,434 of the total.The repaid claims are from 2012, and a total of 12 TDs and Senators were picked at random to have their claims checked to ensure they comply with Oireachtas rules.The Mazars audit found four TDs – Mr Martin, Fine Gael’s Catherine Byrne and Sinn Féin’s Jonathan O’Brien and Michael Colreavy – repaid wrongly claimed expenses.The Irish Times revealed Mr Ó Domhnaill was the only member of the Upper House who had to do so, but he had to repay the largest amount. The Mazars report said: “In our opinion the member was unable to show/receipts relevant documentation, within allowable expenditure categories for the PRA (public representational allowance) as set out in the legislation in respect of €3,434.30 claimed by him during the period under audit.“The expenditure was ineligible as it was either not incurred in the relevant period, the expense category was not allowed for senators or was not applied wholly in respect of expenses specified in (standing orders).”Mr Ó Domhnaill last night said the claims related to the holding of “clinics and constituency offices”. Senators are not allowed claim for such, since they are elected on vocational panels and not constituencies, as TDs are.Mr Ó Domhnaill said there was a “lack of clarity” and said “for being productive on the ground, you are being punished”. He also claimed he would have been allowed claim expenses incurred for holding one-to-one meetings, but not clinics.The Donegal politician also asked the High Court last month to halt an investigation by the commission in the alleged duplication of his previous expenses claims. The action relates to an investigation concerning travel and subsistence claims made by Mr Ó Domhnaill between 2006 and 2007, when he was a member of Donegal County Council.The commission was due to begin a public session concerning the expenses matter last June, but that did not proceed after Mr Ó Domhnaill secured leave from the High Court days earlier to bring his challenge.The High Court is due to make a decision on the matter next month.DONEGAL SENATOR PAYS BACK €3,434 IN WRONGLY-CLAIMED EXPENSES was last modified: December 20th, 2013 by StephenShare 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)Tags:Brian Ó DomhnaillexpensesOIREACHTASlast_img read more

first_imgThe Tomorrow Trust maintains a long-lasting involvement in the lives of the youths that walk through their doors, from as early as the preschool level all the way through to university. (images: Tomorrow Trust)A proper education can go a long way to improving the standards of living of many South Africans, but a quality education may be hard to come by if one does not have the means to pay for it.It is even more difficult to get a quality education for children living without their parents in child-headed homes or orphanages.It is this massive challenge, among many others, that the Tomorrow Trust is looking to overcome. It works to help some of South Africa’s promising young minds to fulfil their potential by accessing better education.“There is nothing more tragic than when someone has been gifted with potential and then cannot access it due to systemic breakdown of delivery within a country such as ours,” says Kim Feinberg, the chief executive officer of the Tomorrow Trust.INVESTING IN THE FUTURE“After 14 years in human rights and education in the non-profit world of South Africa, it became obvious to me that the greatest injustice in our country was not to give our children and youth the opportunity to receive a quality education that would give them both choices and opportunity for their lives.”Shortly after coming to this realisation, Feinberg went about creating the Tomorrow Trust to provide much-needed support to young people who were trying to reach heights just out of reach.The Tomorrow Trust is a non-profit organisation whose efforts are aimed at improving the quality of education available to youth throughout the country. They put a particular focus on those living without the care of their parents in orphanages and homes.A faltering education structure coupled with the lingering effects of apartheid has robbed many South African children of the chance to get high quality education. Apartheid’s unequal education legislation hindered the improvement of infrastructure in schools in underprivileged areas. This has perpetuated the cycle of poverty.It has also widened the gap between the privileged and those less fortunate, making it increasingly difficult for people to lift themselves out of poverty and pursue the lives they would like to live.Feinberg believes a country cannot be successful without an educated youth. “In this case both our youth and the country are set up for failure, breaking all the dreams of each individual as well as those who gave their lives for our democracy such as Madiba and Walter Sisulu, Steve Biko among all the others.”Facilitators at the tomorrow trust strive to help as many children as they can on a daily basis and make a telling difference in the lives of each individual.PROGRAMMES ON OFFERThe Tomorrow trust helps these children to reach their educational goals from as early as preschool all the way through to their matric year, offering support in various ways such as providing study materials, stationery and funding to attend schools that they otherwise may not have been able to attend.The organisation also helps pupils to apply for scholarships and bursaries to help lighten the financial load on the organisation and its sponsors.Throughout their school years, the children taking part in its programmes are inculcated with a pay-it-forward mentality and are encouraged to support other children relying on the trust. Along with this mentality the trust also hopes to instil a sense of self-motivation and independence by offering a hand up, an opportunity to learn how to help themselves, as opposed to a hand out which would only encourage dependence.This approach allows for the youth participating to grow into self-sufficient members of society who can help themselves and in turn, as alumni, help others who are experiencing the same difficulties.Feinberg says the Tomorrow Trust “offers both integrated education and holistic support through psycho-social support and self-development covering all areas of their lives to prepare them for independence and to move into the economy and our society”.Their many programmes insure that they can reach as wide a group of children as their resources allow. By building basic skills in the earlier stages of the programmes and supplementing these skills with more in-depth understanding of subjects like maths, English, science and life sciences later, the pupils are better equipped to compete for places in leading higher learning institutions.Pupils in the Tomorrow Trust programme have shown a marked improvement in their performances. This improvement is even more apparent when one compares the national pass rate and university entry to that of the students taking part in the Tomorrow Trust programmes.In the nine years that the Tomorrow Trust has been in action, it has managed to improve the lives of some 2 000 individuals and their immediate families. It has more than 160 alumni who have graduated from tertiary institutions.“We have a 90% employment rate in a country with over 50% of our youth unemployed. We are breaking generational poverty and creating lives that have both choices and critical thinking to make our country great,” says Feinberg.PLAY YOUR PARTFeinberg encourages the public to help ensure that the trust reaches as many youth as it can by supporting the trust in any way they can.“Tomorrow Trust is turning away hundreds of deserving young children and youth from five years [old] through to university simply due to financial restraints. Every R50 impacts what we can do to give an opportunity to our children and our country. Please get involved with us in as many ways as possible.”To play your part in uplifting the country’s youth, contact the Tomorrow Trust on 011 447 7707 or send an email to [email protected] more information on the trust, you can visit its website.last_img read more

first_imgTeletherapy, therapy using a web-based platform, is being used across the country and internationally to help address the therapy shortage. Parents and schools are using teletherapy to access skilled therapists in their schools or homes by just a click of a link.DotCom Therapy® is one of the companies that is working to address the shortage and the needs of military schools and families around the country. DotCom Therapy was founded by two Speech-Language Pathologists two years ago and has recently expanded from only providing skilled speech therapy services to also providing occupational therapy and mental health services in schools and homes nationwide. We interviewed Emily Olsen, Licensed Clinical Social Worker for DotCom Therapy, to gain insight on this innovative therapy modality.Describe your current role.I provide individual and group counseling along with mental health services to elementary through high school students in a school district that has a large military family population, and has one of their schools on the army base. What’s your favorite part of your current job? I LOVE working with students. It is so fun to work with a first grader and use my imagination and help her navigate through some of the tough emotions she deals with and then work with a high school student who needs help managing and expressing his anger in a healthy way. It is a special time during their day to step away from their peers and teachers, and just spend time talking and working things out. It is so rewarding!Tell us about experiences you have had working with military families.I often interact with families who have moved a lot, which has helped them to be adaptable, resilient and disciplined. These students often are very self aware, understand the importance of family, and have a strong community network to rely on. How did you come to work with military families?I had my first interaction with military families about 12 years ago when a relative of mine was serving in the Army. I learned during that time how strong these families are. I then went to work professionally with military families in my role as a Social Worker for Dotcom Therapy.  It seems that military families have their biological families and then also their extended families of circumstance (being bonded by their involvement with the military).  I believe that the support network for military families is unmatched.From your experience, how are military families similar and different from other types of families? How do you change your practice between families? I know that when I see a student who comes from a military family there will be additional challenges that this student will have most likely faced at their young age (i.e., deployment of a loved one, frequent moves to new posts/schools/churches, and uncertainty of their future). I also know that these students will have many strengths including: adaptability, resilience, strong community support, self-awareness, and advanced maturity in some cases. When working with all families, military or civilian, it is important to remember to not enter into the therapeutic relationship with preconceived notions; it is my job to let these families and students teach me about themselves. They have their own unique story, struggles and strengths, and that is where I need to start. As providers, how can we support military parents who are deployed or away frequently due to trainings/school?   From my standpoint in my role, I like to communicate with family members however is easiest and works best for them. I am flexible in knowing that communication may not always be easy or consistent due to the work they do, but it does not mean that family members do not want to know how their child is doing. Sometimes you have to think outside the box to keep those communication lines open. The executive Director of DotCom Therapy, Elise Mitchell, a certified speech-language pathologist says this about the use of teletherapy with military schools and families: “By using this remote, encrypted-platform, we are able to efficiently get to these students and pair them with a specialist because location is no longer a barrier. We are able to ensure that military students and families have access to an autism specialist, a bilingual therapist, a therapist who also has a husband in the military and understands that community etc….essentially whatever the school or family needs in their skilled therapist. It is very rewarding to meet the therapy needs of these families who are doing so much for our country.”To learn more about DotCom Therapy, visit www.dotcomtherapy.comThis post was edited by Robyn DiPietro-Wells & Michaelene Ostrosky, PhD, members of the MFLN FD Early Intervention team, which aims to support the development of professionals working with military families. thethelast_img read more
