Dorms find innovative ways to build community during pandemic

first_imgWhile COVID-19 has limited the variety of activities dorms can host, halls are trying to keep their traditions and allow the students to immerse themselves in the dorm life in safer and socially distant ways.Sophomore Danny Brennan, a resident of Fischer Hall, reflected on the pandemic as an opportunity for dorms to be more creative about planning events.“It’s definitely been tough so far,” Brennan said. “With all the restrictions, what we’ve traditionally done is a lot of barbecues and a lot of outdoor events with the dorm community, trying to tie people together in that way. But this year it’s been a little bit tougher than that, so we’ve had to be a little creative.”Fisher Hall has been fundraising for St. Adalbert Catholic School for many years. This year, Fisher planned a tournament with an entry fee that supports St. Adalbert.Brennan said it is important continue donating to St. Adalbert.“[Fisher residents] love the idea of not only them being able to have fun and a little competition, but also being able to give to St. Adalbert because we do have a commitment. I would say everyone, I mean I can’t obviously speak for everyone, but we really care about St. Adalbert,” Brennan said.The mood of competition also keeps residents active in Stanford Hall, who are participating in “Cross-Sectional Olympics,” Stanford president junior Allan Njomo said. Courtesy of Allan Njomo Stanford residents compete in Spikeball during the Cross-Sectional Olympics.“Cross-Sectional Olympics is a big competition we are all having as a dorm,” Njomo said. “We have a variety of big events and smaller events. For example, everybody goes out on the field and does a quick 40-meter race. We also have games of the iPhone pool, checkers or ping pong. Over time, these points are adding up to see which section is going to win on all of it.”Another signature event, ND 110, is organized by Duncan Hall. President, junior Jason Wanamaker described the event’s success this year.“ND 110 is a stair climb that honors first responders that climbed the Twin Towers during 9/11,” Wanamaker said. “We got about 370 students to participate this year. Last year, only about 100 students participated, so we upped the participation a lot. At the end of the day, we got to write a check for $10,000 to the charity for disaster relief.”Duncan also hosted a Yoga SYR with a certified yoga instructor. Courtesy of Jason Wanamaker Students gather outside for Duncan’s Yoga SYR.“We have a certified yoga instructor in our dorm,” Wanamaker said. “He had people bring dates to the lawn behind Duncan. It was very fun. We got about 150 people total.”The dorm presidents realize the difficulties for new students in meeting new people and making friends. Pasquerilla East president Meghan Bolinger shared how Zoom makes it easier for students to engage.“The Zoom events could have helped with that as people were able to tune into things without necessarily taking that initial step right away,” the junior said.Pasquerilla East Hall teamed up with the Spreading Positivity and Radiating Kindness (SPARK) Commission which allows freshmen to connect with upperclassmen.“Upperclassmen and freshmen could sign up to help plan events and facilitate things together,” Bolinger said. “They were put in their SPARK groups, as an opportunity to meet new people who weren’t necessarily their roommates, go get dinner with them and plan events. It’s more freshmen targeted just because it’s a really difficult time this year.”Lewis Hall and Walsh Hall have also created similar programs that could help freshmen get outside of their comfort zone and meet new people.Lewis president, junior Claire Wilson commented how her dorm’s Big Little program is connecting freshmen with upperclassmen.“This coming Friday is our Big Little reveal,” Wilson said. “This year, it is huge. We have so many littles that everyone has two littles.”Walsh chief of staff, junior Caroline Bice said the hall has altered its traditional events to adhere to new safety guidelines.“We have a lot of events that are Walsh traditions which we had to adapt for this year,” Bice said. “We have this thing called Soul Sisters which is basically a Bible study format discussion, where you just talk about your faith in a super informal way, its application to current situations so how you’re changing and how that affects you and your mental health.”Tags: COVID-19, dorm community, Duncan Hall, fisher hall, lewis hall, Pasqueriila East, Stanford Hall, Walsh Halllast_img read more

Champions League final eight set to be played behind closed doors

first_img The other outstanding tie will see German champions Bayern Munich entertain Chelsea at the Allianz Arena in pole position having won 3-0 in the first leg. The winners of those four ties will join the already-qualified quartet of Atalanta, RB Leipzig, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in the last eight. The latter stages will be played out in a unique final eight straight knockout format in Lisbon in August, starting on August 12 with the first quarter-final and concluding with the final at Benfica’s Estadio da Luz on August 23. All quarter-final and semi-final ties will be one-off matches. The Portuguese capital was announced as the venue in June but has since registered worrying numbers of coronavirus cases, with lockdown restrictions reimposed last week on 19 neighbourhoods across the northern periphery of Lisbon. The restrictions concern some 700,000 people and will remain in place for at least a fortnight. The Europa League will also be completed with an identical format, a final eight in Germany, with the final in Cologne on August 21. However, none of the last-16 ties have been completed, with only six of the eight first legs having been played. Benfica’s home stadium, the Estadio da Luz, will host the 2020 Champions League final Read Also: Ronaldo shows off ripped body as he recovers from AC Milan loss The other two ties – Inter Milan v Getafe and Sevilla v Roma – will be played as one-off ties in Germany. The women’s Champions League will be completed with a final eight in San Sebastian and Bilbao in Spain’s Basque Country between August 21 and 30. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 However, following a review, UEFA has decided to allow those sides who were supposed to be at home to play the matches in their own stadiums on August 7 and 8. It means that Italian champions Juventus will host Lyon in Turin looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg played in France in late February. Loading… “Several elements were taken into account by UEFA when making a decision, such as the protection of the health of all those involved in the matches as well as the public at large; a responsibility to provide the safest environment for matches in order to guarantee the progress of competitions; as well as ensuring sporting fairness within a very inconsistent landscape (with some countries allowing and some forbidding stadium attendances),” European football’s governing body said in a statement. It added that “in light of the current situation, the UEFA Executive Committee felt it prudent to conclude that UEFA matches should take place behind closed doors until further notice.” UEFA said the decision had been made “in agreement with the national associations and authorities of the final eight tournaments’ hosts Germany, Portugal and Spain”. It also confirmed that “irrespective of any future decision, for reasons of sporting fairness”, all matches in the qualifying rounds of next season’s European competitions which are due to be held as a single-leg ties – so not including the play-offs for the Champions League – will be played behind closed doors. – Last-16 venues decided – Meanwhile, the remaining last-16 games, which were postponed in March because of the coronavirus pandemic, will not be played on neutral grounds when they finally go ahead in August. UEFA had indicated last month that the matches could be played in the northern Portuguese cities of Porto and Guimaraes depending on the health situation around the continent. The final eight of this season’s Champions League in Lisbon is set to go ahead behind closed doors after UEFA confirmed Thursday that all matches in European competitions would be played without spectators “until further notice” because of the coronavirus pandemic. The decision also affects the four outstanding last 16, second-leg matches, as well as the remainder of this season’s Europa League and the women’s Champions League final eight, to be played in Spain in August. Manchester City will defend a 2-1 lead when they entertain record 13-time champions Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium, while Barcelona will host Napoli at the Camp Nou with that tie poised following a 1-1 draw in the first leg.

Port Harcourt Introduces Night Golf

first_imgMohamed Salah may have scored over a century of goals but he will forever be remembered in Egypt for just one – the late strike against Congo in October that took the Pharaohs to their first World Cup in over a quarter of a century.Egypt – African champions a record seven times – had not reached a World Cup since 1990, but Salah was given the chance to seal their place in Russia from the penalty spot deep into stoppage time with the score at 1-1.The 25-year-old somehow ignored the crackling fever to slam home, sparking nationwide euphoria and prompting President Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi to praise the forward’s ability to handle the pressure of over 80 million expectant Egyptians. The goal cemented his reign as King of the Pharaohs in 2017, with the team nicknamed ‘Salah’s Egypt’ thanks to the winger often inspiring a limited side to the top. Salah scored five of the seven World Cup qualifying goals that took Egypt to next summer’s tournament.He was equally impressive at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, where he earned a place in the team of the tournament after having a hand in four of Egypt’s five goals – scoring twice – as the North Africans finished runners-up to Cameroon.However, Salah’s outstanding form has not been restricted to internationals. After joining Liverpool from Roma in June, the start to his Anfield career could scarcely have gone better as he was named the club’s player of the month in August and September.A goal on his debut helped him rack up seven goals in his first 11 Premier League games, and he has fared even better in the Champions League, with five goals in six games.Salah’s superb start in England was a continuation of his fine form in Italy, where the diminutive player was a key figure in Roma’s best league placing in seven years.He scored 15 times and provided 11 assists in a league famed for its defending as Roma finished second, trailing champions Juventus by just four points.This is the first time Salah has been nominated for BBC African Footballer of the Year and he would be the first Egyptian to win it since the legendary Mohamed Aboutrika in 2008.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Where to consume foraged apples at The Orchard on Fortnite map

first_imgThe map above shows you where The Orchard is on the Fortnite Chapter 2 map.When you land there, you’ll notice apple trees in the area with some apples that have landed on the ground. If you’ve been playing for a while, you’ve likely consumed apples in the past. But if not, all you need to do is look at the apple and then a button will appear (depending on what system you’re playing on) that shows how to consume the apple. Just hold on to that button for about a second and you’ll eat the apple.As in the past, once you’ve eaten the apple you will gain five health (if you need it).

Although they’re called Trick Shot challenges, none of the challenges actually involve doing trick shots.Instead, most of the challenges are pretty straightforward (eliminations with Pistols, Damage with Shotguns) with a few that might need a little extra guidance. One of those is “Consume Foraged apples at The Orchard.” While somewhat easy to understand, you may not remember exactly where The Orchard is. That’s where we come in. The Orchard is located near Frenzy Farm, although it’s a little more north of there.MORE: Pipeman, Hayman and Timber Tent locations to dance at for Fortnite challengeConsume apples at The Orchard in Fortnite The hardest part of this challenge will be fighting off others for apples. Most likely, a lot of people will be landing here to complete the challenge on their own, meaning the apples may be gone if you wait too long. Other than that, this challenge is pretty simple and you should accomplish it quickly.The challenge requires you to consume three apples.last_img read more
