Bronkhorst arrived at the Hwange court on Monday wearing khaki trousers, a striped khaki shirt and a grey cap.Lawyers for professional Zimbabwean hunter Theo Bronkhorst, who led the expedition that killed Cecil the lion, on Monday applied to have the case against him thrown out of court.The hunt provoked worldwide outrage after it emerged that Cecil was a well-known attraction among visitors to the Hwange National Park and was wearing a tracking collar as part of an Oxford University research project.Regional magistrate Dambudzo Malunga accepted the court application and remanded the case until October 15 when she said she would determine if Bronkhorst’s trial should go ahead.Bronkhorst, 52, has been charged with “failing to prevent an illegal hunt” when American dentist Walter Palmer paid $55,000 (50,000 euros) to shoot the lion with a bow and arrow in early July.Bronkhorst denies any wrongdoing, saying he had obtained all the permits required to kill an elderly lion that was outside the national park boundaries. The owner of the land on which Cecil the lion was killed was listed among five state witness in the trial after initially being charged with allowing an illegal hunt.–AFP Charges against Cecil the lion hunter dropped by a Zimbabwean court Nigerian child bride murder case droppedcenter_img 2 Zimbabweans Face Charges over Death of Cecil the Lion Relatedlast_img read more

first_imgSr. Frances Jean Sandschulte, age 97, of the Srs. of St. Francis in Oldenburg, died January 5, 2017 at the convent.  Born August 12, 1919 in Loretto, Tennessee, she is the daughter of Elizabeth (Nee: Hollander) and Henry Sandschulte.Sr. Frances Jean entered the convent September 12, 1939 and made her final vows August 12, 1945.  She served as a music teacher, organist, orchestra and band director for 65 years before retiring in 2007.  Those places included Our Lady of Angels, St. Catherine’s, St. Aloysius Gonzaga and La Salle in Cincinnati, Ohio; Tierra Maria High School in New Mexico, St. Mary’s in New Albany, Indiana and Little Flower, Holy Trinity and Our Lady of Lourdes in Indianapolis, Indiana.The first of five children, her family moved to Cincinnati in 1925.  She became introduced to the Sisters as a student at Perpetual Help Elementary School.  Living close to the sisters, she began to consider her religious calling.  Knowing she wanted to pursue that calling, she waited two years after graduating before entering the Franciscan community.She noted that her parents loved music and as a result, she and her siblings pursued musical interests in which all were involved in the school orchestras and bands.  She enrolled in Marian University to get her music degree and later would graduate from the Cincinnati College of Music in 1953 and the College Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati in 1971.In 2005, while teaching at La Salle High School in Cincinnati, she was recognized by the La Salle High School principal during Catholic Schools Week.  In congratulating her, he said, “Sister, thank you for being an invaluable member of our greater Cincinnati Catholic School community.  Your dedication, love of music and passion for education are inspirational to all.  May God continue to bless you with health and happiness because of your loyal service to His children.”Upon retirement, she commented, “My greatest joy has been music.  My mother was a talented pianist and her love of music was caught by all her children. From the time I entered the Community, I was assigned to schools where I gave individual music lessons and organized bands and orchestras.  I must say I never missed a day in 65 years, so I lived “the sound of music.”  Somewhere in all of this I graduated from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music with honors.”  In retirement, she assisted in the convent Archives area and was piano accompanist for the choir and a member of the Chime Choir.She is survived by her sister Clementine Phillips of Fairborn, Ohio as well as numerous nieces and nephews.  In addition to her parents, she is also preceded in death by sisters Alma Rydze, Ruth Fisher and brother Henry Sandschulte.Visitation is Tuesday, January 10th, from 1 – 3 p.m. at the convent chapel.  Funeral services follow at 3 p.m. with Rev. Bill Turner officiating.  Burial will be in the convent cemetery.  Weigel Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.  Memorials may be made to the Srs. of St. Francis, P.O.

The minister disclosed this while speaking to newsmen on Nigeria’s preparations for the Olympics. He said the foreign based athletes will benefit from the advanced sporting facilities in their countries of residence, while stressing the need to provide same for the Nigeria-based athletes. “We are going to send a few of the home-based athletes outside the country for the necessary training. Some will go to Holland, other parts  of Europe, some will even go to Kenya,” he said. Dare also assured that the ministry was working round the clock to secure funding to support the athletes to ensure they give the best for the country at the Games. He  expressed optimism that the “Adopt an Athlete” policy of the ministry will go a long way in boosting preparation for the Olympics. In a related development, the Nigeria Olympic Committee has declared that suspended President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria Ibrahim Gusau’s claim of autonomy from the Ministry of Youth and Sports was out of order. The NOC also endorsed the removal of erstwhile AFN Technical Director, Sunday Adeleye, saying he stands removed stemming from the Ministerial Panel on the crises during the 2019 World Athletics Championship in Doha. According to the report, the leadership crisis in the AFN had been brewing since the last National Federation elections in June 2017 and worsened before the 12th African Games in Morocco in August 2019 when some board members asked Gusau to step aside as president and be investigated.Tags: EuropeIbrahim GusauTokyo 2020 Olympicslast_img read more

first_imgSUNY-ESF’s men’s soccer team ascended to the collegiate level in 2010. Since then, four other sports have joined them. Here are some of the other intercollegiate teams the State of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry students can participate in:Men’s golf Head coach John Turbeville called them the Mighty Oaks’ version of the Bad News Bears, Thaddeus Holland recalls.Holland, through his three years on the golf team, has seen a transformation from a men’s golf team competing at the recreational club level to a highly competitive unit competing in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletes.‘The golf team was still searching for its identity when I joined,’ said Holland, a senior. ‘… The team worked hard and fed off each other’s energy and, as a result, surprised a lot of people.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen Turbeville, the men’s golf coach, came to ESF in 2002, there were no formalized athletics teams, only clubs. Although the team now has 23 players, the birth of the team began in 2007 with eight players trying to learn the ropes.‘Now is certainly a very exciting time for ESF athletics, as it is gaining steam,’ Turbeville said. ‘It is, however, coupled with some sadness, as the students who were involved in the creation of the program are now graduating.’Although the sport is growing, Turbeville would not go as far to say that athletics has a huge role in the student body.Said Turbeville: ‘I think it has afforded a lot of students the opportunity to come to a specialized science school and not have to forego what is likely an experience with a sport that they have been playing all throughout high school.’Women’s cross countryJim Goulet has seen the transformation of sports at ESF. During his time as an undergraduate, ESF students could play on SU teams.However, the women’s cross country coach and 1972 graduate recalls that only about a dozen participated in sports such as rowing, track, basketball and lacrosse.When Goulet came back to his alma mater, those problems no longer existed. The NCAA dubbed ESF’s participation in SU Division-I athletics illegal due to ESF students paying tuition to their own school and not SU.To gain numbers, they didn’t go to the more conventional route.‘What was unusual was no one came there with the intention of running cross country. … We had to make up our team from the students already on campus,’ he said.In its third year, enrollment numbers for the women’s cross country team have gone up, but that’s partially because very few of the original numbers have graduated.However, the Mighty Oaks have been successful. Last year, ESF surprised everyone when it placed second in the USAA National and almost beat rival William and Smith last weekend.But Goulet would never go as far as to say that athletics are a big deal on campus.‘It’s not a sports-oriented school at all,’ he said.When it came to having a program, it wasn’t the students who weren’t as interested. Faculty members and Goulet said the administration had to promise they wouldn’t be taking kids from classes and that academics would be a priority.‘So, when we recruit, we stress that academics have to be first, athletics second,’ he said.He said that athletics aren’t a big thing, except for those who are involved.‘It’s not like we have crowds coming to our soccer games or cross country meets,’ he said.Men’s cross countryWhen John View arrived at ESF in 1979, the only two teams were the Woodsmen’s team and a men’s basketball program.He credits the unique relationship between ESF and Syracuse University for the expansion of the athletic programs due to both the support and facilities SU has given to ESF.‘Some students started to get interested,’ View said. ‘We don’t have a basketball team, so, of course, our students are going to appreciate that.’When Mike Miles joined the men’s cross country team his sophomore year, he was one of just eight or nine guys to be part of the first class of runners.Now, as a senior and captain of the team three seasons later, the team has doubled in size to more than 20 athletes.Miles said as the program gets older and more networking occurs, the team will get quantity and quality at the same time.He said he thinks ESF can have the best of both worlds when it comes to sports. Students can participate without dealing with the pressure that comes with competing at the Division-I level.Besides being a men’s cross country coach, the ‘highlight’ of Miles’ years has been being a competitive road runner, cross country runner for the Syracuse Chargers and running in the end of the season meets against the SU men’s team.Women’s soccerJust like the other ESF athletic teams, women’s soccer is another team that has continued to expand and get better.Junior midfielder and defender Amy Chianucci said last year — the team’s inaugural season — was a struggle, but this year things are looking up.‘This year we came into the season a little more seasoned with tougher training session and a heftier game schedule,’ Chianucci said.Head coach Daniel Ramin, who also coaches the men’s soccer team, likes the direction the team is heading.The highlight of the season so far has been a major victory over NCAA program Wells College. The match was a high scoring affair, with ESF coming out on top 7-4.On the season, the Mighty Oaks are 3-2.And what Ramin likes most about this team is the young talent on the roster.‘This has been a great recruiting year,’ Ramin said.The team currently has six freshmen in the starting lineup.— Compiled by Colleen Bidwill, asst. feature editor, cbidwill@syr.edu, and David Propper, staff writer, dgproppe@syr.edu  Comments Published on September 21, 2011 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgSyracuse redshirt junior guard Aaron Roberts injured his left knee during summer conditioning and will miss the 2017 season, SU Athletics announced Saturday morning.The 21-year-old from Chicago started all 12 games at left guard last season and led the Orange in both snaps played (968) and knockdown blocks (39). SU begins searching for his replacement at fall camp, which opens Sunday.The 6-foot-4, 297-pound lineman redshirted as a true freshman in 2014 and played in three games a sophomore. Last season, as a part of a line that featured five first-year starters, Syracuse succeeded throwing the ball but never gained any consistency on the ground. The Orange finished 13th out of 14 ACC teams in rushing, averaging 3.2 yards per carry as a team and scoring only 15 touchdowns on the ground.When Roberts left SU’s spring game, Syracuse.com reported, redshirt freshman Airon Servais moved from center to left guard.

first_imgThe Chairman of the Delta State Athletics Association, Solomon Ogba has resigned from the present board of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN).Media adviser to the two-time former AFN President, Olukayode Thomas confirmed the development yesterday as he stated that Ogba chose to throw in the towel due to the undue interference in the activities of the AFN.According to Thomas, Ogba is not comfortable with the dirty politicking that has taken over the AFN lately and that has informed his decision to quit the board. He said Ogba who is an advocate of doing things right is not happy that the AFN constitution and rules have been relegated to the background while things are now done without recourse to the law binding the Federation.“As an elder statesman in sports and athletics, in particular, Ogba said he cannot sit and continue to watch things done wrongly, though he has withdrawn from the AFN board, he will continue giving his support to athletics in Delta State and Nigeria as a whole” Thomas assured.Meanwhile, the former AFN boss also shed more light into the missing $150,000 grant from the World Athletics body during the last Africa Senior Athletics Championships held in Asaba, Delta State.Ogba described as untrue that the Athletics Federation of Nigeria, AFN got 150, 000 USD from the Confederation of African Athletics, CAA for the event.He explained that the money from the CAA was explicitly given to the LOC to assist in the hosting of the continental championships and was never meant for the Federation has been erroneously suggested.“It is a global norm that when cities are to host important events, governing and continental bodies give monetary and technical assistance to support the Local Organising Committees, so the 150,000 USD was assistance for the LOC, not AFN.“FIFA does similar things in football just like other world sporting bodies,” he explained.He wondered if the said $150,000 would have covered the magnitude of the budget spent for the 7-day programme which was adjudged one of the best organised continental showpiece.He also wondered why accusing fingers are been pointed at the AFN and no one is talking about the N850m applied for by the Sports Ministry to support the African Championships.“As at today, neither the LOC of Asaba 2018 nor anyone from Delta State has been informed about what happened to the 850m the Sports Ministry requested from the Presidency for Asaba 2018,” Ogba queried.But in a swift reaction, some of the board members of the federation insisted that Ogba’s resignation from the board was an attempt to wave attention away from the $150,000 in question.One of the board member, Brown Ebewele noted that Ogba should explain why the money was not paid into the federation’s account but a private account.“When we hosted the African Junior Championships in 1997 in Ibadan,the IAAF gave AFN $90,000 to assist in the hosting of the championships,” he responded.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_img“Now it’s winnin’ time.”A 20-minute postgame rally hosted by comedian George Lopez kept the 48,000-plus Dodgers fans in attendance on Fan Appreciation Day at a frenzied pace as players came on the field following the game wearing their NL West title caps and T-shirts.“The magic number is 11,” Lopez told the crowd, already counting down to a championship that would necessitate three wins in the NLDS and four more in the NLCS and World Series.Any more victories after this would come with Uribe making visits to the mound as a third baseman trying to give some advice instead of a manager-in-training calling for a pitching change, as he did with two outs in the seventh to take out right-hander Pedro Baez and bring in lefty Daniel Coulombe ‑ at the suggestion, no less, of his pitching coach, Clayton Kershaw, and likely endorsed by bench coach Hanley Ramirez (wearing Tim Wallach’s jersey).“I don’t like doing that,” said Uribe afterward. “It’s hard going to the mound. I don’t think I want to be a manager any more.”The home runs by Kemp and Gonzalez, and one more monster shot by seldom-used outfielder Roger Bernadina, were more than enough of a cushion for Greinke, as the Dodgers collected 16 hits on a day they didn’t take batting practice. Gonzales and Kemp have combined to hit 52 homers and drive in 205 runs.Now the silliness is over.“The last three games (since clinching the NL West) have been good and we’ve kept battling, but now I can start to feel a change already,” Mattingly said after the game, talking about going from regular to postseason mentality. “This is the best time of year.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error •A 1-0 managerial record for Juan Uribe, who started the game wearing Don Mattingly’s No. 8 jersey when taking the lineup card to home plate and then switched to Tommy Lasorda’s No. 2 jersey for a more comfortable fit later.The next stack of unfinished business begins with reopening the file on the St. Louis Cardinals.When Pittsburgh lost to Cincinnati prior to the first pitch of the Dodgers-Rockies contest, the Cardinals secured the NL Central title before they even took the field in Arizona. That meant the Dodgers didn’t have to wait a possible extra day to figure out who they’ll face in the first game of the National League Divisional Series on Friday. St. Louis, which knocked the Dodgers out of the NL Championship Series a year ago and has been “a thorn in our side” according to Mattingly, locked up that rematch position.The Dodgers’ 94th win of the regular season tidied up a three-game sweep of the Rockies and gave the Dodgers five consecutive victories to end the season, a streak better than any other team in the big leagues now. The franchise also has back-to-back 90-win seasons for the first time since a three-year stretch in 1976-78.“It’s all coming together at the right time,” said Dodgers co-owner Magic Johnson on the field before the start of Sunday game. “The town is really behind this team. They love this team. This is Dodger fever right now. This team has captivated this city and it’s fun to see it all growing.center_img The finished business that came bundled with the Dodgers’ 10-5 triumph-turned-pep rally over Colorado to complete the 2014 regular season on Sunday afternoon:•A major-league best 116 RBIs for Adrian Gonzalez, a total derived by a three-run homer, his team-leading 27th, in the third inning.•A 25th home run in the 150th game for Matt Kemp, coming in the first inning ‑ more HRs and games played since his near-MVP season of 2011.•A career-best 17th victory for Zack Greinke, who went five clean innings, passed the 200-inning mark for the season and even added a double down the left field line to raise his average to .200.last_img read more
