Travel alert affects students abroad

first_imgWith the State Department’s recent release of a general travel alert for all Americans in Europe, Notre Dame’s Office of International Studies (OIS) took extra precautions to enhance awareness of the alert and to ensure the safety of its students studying or traveling abroad. The travel alert, released on Sunday, alerted U.S. citizens to the increased potential for terrorist attacks in Europe and recommended U.S. citizens take safety precautions when traveling abroad, particularly in public places like tourist sites and airports or while riding public transportation. The alert, a step below a formal “travel warning” which advises U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to particular places, was issued after an assessment of information that terrorist groups appeared to be plotting attacks on cities in Europe. There are presently 235 Notre Dame students studying in Europe, according to Kathleen Opel, director of OIS. OIS is in close contact with its students who are studying abroad and the program directors urged students to listen to the warnings of the State Department and adopt appropriate safety measures. “The Office of International Studies has notified students in Europe of the State Department’s advisory,” Opel said. “We have advised them to follow the tips from the State Department and have provided them with various strategies to do so.” Opel said she would tell Notre Dame students in Europe to increase their awareness when in specific locations or settings. “Students need to be vigilant and always be aware of their surroundings,” she said. “They are aware that they should not be attending political rallies or wearing clothing that draws attention to them as Americans.” Students in the Notre Dame London Program were made well aware of the advisory. “The London program has reviewed the travel alert with students both by email and verbally,” London program director Greg Kucich said. “We are emphasizing the alert’s precautions regarding vigilance, especially at transportation centers and large public gatherings.” Kuchich said the London Program urged students to follow the security procedures already established by the program, which include always filling out electronic itinerary travel forms and carrying the operational cell phones provided by the London program, as well as the emergency phone numbers. Both Kucich and Opel emphasized that students should use common sense and listen to and heed their instincts. “Students seem to be taking this in stride,” Opel said. “Most remember 9/11 and have grown up and live in an environment where travel vigilance is required.” Kuchich said Notre Dame students should even increase their awareness in their daily activities. “Students are paying due attention to the travel alert and recommended precautions while proceeding in a cautious, calm way with their academic studies, their daily routines in London, and their travel plans,” Kucich said. “Students are responding intelligently and maturely to the travel alert and are following all recommended precautions without disrupting their travel plans.” Junior Alex Study, who is abroad in London, is aware of the advisory and necessary precautions. “The recent travel advisory has not significantly affected my fall break thus far,” Study said. “I have made travel plans and I intend to keep those plans.” Study said most students are cautious but not allowing the advisory to negatively affect their academic and traveling experiences while abroad. “Most people don’t seem to be taking any real precautions, but some people are a little concerned and will be trying to avoid public transportation for a while,” he said. “As for myself, I won’t be taking any specific precautions, but will just exercise common sense and be aware of my surroundings.” The Office of International Studies will continue to work closely with students and program directors in monitoring and communicating the heightened threat. “We are looking out for what is best for the students,” Opel said. “We want to make sure the locations are safe and we will continue to monitor information as it develops and reassess from there.”last_img read more

Congressional delegation announces funding for White River VA expansion

first_imgCong. Delegation announces funding for White River VA expansionWASHINGTON (Monday, February 11) – Vermont’s Congressional Delegation – Sen. Patrick Leahy (D), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I), and Rep. Peter Welch (D) – announced today that the White River Junction VA Medical Center has been awarded $900,000 for designing a new imaging center and expanding its radiology services.  The medical center will be eligible for an additional $6 million for construction next year.The funding will allow the VA to plan and design the 6,996 sq. ft. expansion and renovation to the current facility.  The project will enhance radiology services for veterans and provide space for a permanent MRI machine. Leahy said, “To remain one of the country’s leading VA medical centers, White River Junction needs the latest equipment and facilities.  The new imaging center will create the space to bring in the most technologically advanced diagnostic and treatment sensors, keeping the hospital at the leading edge.  It will help provide the state-of-the-art quality care that our veterans deserve.”Sanders said, “This funding is good news for Vermont veterans. These resources will allow White River Junction’s VA to both add new space for a permanent MRI and renovate existing space so that Vermont veterans have top-notch radiology services.  As a member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, I look forward to making sure that these funds are delivered to the White River VA in a timely manner.”Welch said, “I regularly talk with Vermont veterans who are forced to travel out of state for their medical care.  This radiology expansion will help increase the services our White River Junction’s VA provides so our veterans can get more of the care they need right here at home.  Our veterans are entitled to the best and most cutting-edge care we can provide.”# # # # #last_img read more

Villa slip up in Fulham draw

first_img Paul Lambert’s side had been unlucky not to have led at the break but Charles N’Zogbia finally made the breakthrough before the hour mark at Villa Park. However Delph’s own goal, combined with a glaring miss in the 73rd minute, allowed Fulham to go home with a point and denied Villa the chance to go five points clear of the bottom three. Villa headed into the match seemingly timing their pull from relegation perfectly, winning three of their past four to leave them two points clear of the drop zone heading into the game, with rivals Sunderland and Wigan not in action. Fulham suffered a blow in the 10th minute when Damien Duff was forced off with a leg injury and replaced by Stanislav Manolev in an otherwise quiet opening period. Ashley Westwood’s 24th-minute corner caused Fulham a moment of anxiety before Christian Benteke side-footed over from towards just outside the six-yard box when he should have added to his overall tally of 19 goals from Andreas Weimann’s ball in. In the 31st minute Benteke and N’Zogbia played a series of one-two passes with each other before the former found his colleague with a delicate cross on the left, which N’Zogbia tried to clip home only for Mark Schwarzer to save impressively. Villa kept up the pressure from the restart and it finally told in the 55th minute. Matthew Lowton found Weimann in the box and though Brede Hangeland blocked the Austrian’s attempt, N’Zogbia had time to shift the ball onto his left foot and bend it into the left-hand corner. The equaliser came in the 66th minute. Bryan Ruiz’s corner from the right should have been dealt with comfortably at the near post but Villa midfielder Delph contrived the flick the ball backwards with his head, leaving Brad Guzan rooted and Westwood unable to scramble it away before it crossed the line. Villa had a sublime chance in the 73rd minute when Delph wasted the opportunity to atone for the own goal, blasting a loose ball at the back post high and wide with his left foot from Weimann’s teasing cross.

The two utility players have combined to miss 29 games between them. Roberts said Hernandez is “a couple days ahead” of Taylor in his recovery.“Maybe next weekend we’ll get them out on a rehab assignment, but that’s to be seen,” Roberts said.Jedd Gyorko lined out to the pitcher, singled, and played five innings at third base in his first minor league rehab game Saturday with Double-A Tulsa.

They have drawn 2,819,217 fans this season and will likely pass the 3 million mark by the end of the week.UP NEXTDodgers (RHP Tony Gonsolin, 0-1, 5.63) vs. Cardinals (RHP Michael Wacha, 6-4, 5.15), 7 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), MLB Network (out of market only), 570-AMRelated Articles Dodgers catcher Russell Martin said Maeda was “on board” with the pre-game plan Sunday. He didn’t shake off Martin’s pitch selections, and took a 3-1 lead into the third inning. But with two outs and two strikes on Greg Garcia, umpire Jerry Meals made a controversial call that changed the dynamic of the inning.On his eighth pitch to Garcia, Maeda located a fastball at the bottom of the strike zone. It was close to the same height as a called strike three on Fernando Tatis Jr. one batter earlier. Maeda hopped off the mound in anticipation, but Meals called the pitch a ball.Garcia singled on Maeda’s next pitch, then Manny Machado walked. That loaded the bases for Hosmer’s grand slam.“If I could take back one pitch, that would be the one pitch,” Martin said of the fateful changeup to Hosmer. “Sometimes you just make a mistake at the wrong time.”Maeda was less than an inch away from finishing the third inning without allowing a run. Instead, he continued a troubling trend.“He’s still a great pitcher,” Martin said of Maeda. “I thought that he did do a good job of using his fastball. He got some really weak contact. Machado, Tatis, a few of their guys – he got in on Renfroe as well. I think if he keeps trusting (his fastball), he’s going to realize that guys at this point respect the slider so much that they’re more vulnerable inside than people think.” LOS ANGELES – The Dodgers made Kenta Maeda a full-time relief pitcher in August of last year. Pitching in high-leverage relief situations down the stretch, Maeda’s earned-run average fell. His strikeout rate rose. By the National League Championship Series, he was the team’s top right-handed set-up man.Now, Maeda’s declining performance – as well as the emergence of other starting pitchers – is threatening to relegate him to a relief role again.Rookie Tony Gonsolin is taking Hyun-Jin Ryu’s place in the rotation Monday against the Cardinals. Two days later, the Dodgers will give Dustin May his second career start. Once Ryu returns from the injured list – he’s expected to miss only one start with neck soreness – Maeda could become the odd man out of the rotation.Maeda was 7-2 with a 3.61 ERA on May 31. Since then he is 0-6 with a 5.26 ERA, and has completed six innings just twice in 11 starts. Struggling to face hitters a third time through the batting order has been nothing new for Maeda. Sunday, he recorded only one out the second time through the lineup. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Maeda’s 2 ⅔-inning start against the San Diego Padres was his shortest this season, excluding a game in Philadelphia that was interrupted by rain. He was charged with five runs, all earned, including four on a grand slam by Eric Hosmer.“If you look at the first couple innings (Sunday) they were sitting soft and (Maeda) was beating them with the fastball,” Manager Dave Roberts said. “And so it’s tough, it’s hard, when you become predictable. That conviction at times, to throw your fastball when they have a tendency to sit soft, you’ve got to believe it. If you go to the well too many times that’s what can happen.”Is Maeda’s rotation spot in jeopardy?“No, no, he’s fine,” Roberts said.When Hosmer batted with the bases loaded in the third inning, he did not see a fastball. Maeda’s third consecutive changeup found the middle of the strike zone, and flew off Hosmer’s bat like a stampede. The grand slam put the Dodgers in a 5-3 hole.
