Books portraying ‘traditional’ families could be barred – EU

first_imgMailOnline 7 Nov 2o12Books which portray ‘traditional’ images of  mothers caring for their children or fathers going out to work could be barred  from schools under proposals from Brussels. An EU report claims that ‘gender  stereotyping’ in schools influences the perception of the way boys and girls  should behave and damages women’s career opportunities in the future. Critics said the proposals for ‘study  materials’ to be amended so that men and women are no longer depicted in their  traditional roles would mean the withdrawal of children’s classics, such as Enid  Blyton’s The Famous Five series, Paddington Bear or Peter Pan. The document, prepared by the European  Parliament’s Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality, also suggests  EU-wide legislation is needed to tackle the way women are depicted in  advertising during children’s television programmes. It further complains about the number of  women in EU parliaments, and floats the idea of fixed quotas on a minimum  proportion of female MPs.…Tim Aker, spokesman for Get Britain Out, a  Eurosceptic campaign group, warned: ‘If the EU has its way, millions of  youngster would be denied the pleasure of reading childhood classics such as  Paddington Bear, Peter Pan or the Tiger Who Came to Tea because these books show  mums and dads in so-called traditional roles. ‘The Eurozone is crumbling, millions are out  of work and a generation of young Europeans face a bleak future. Yet the EU is  spending its time concentrating on how to socially engineer our children. This  politically correct report should be binned at once.’http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2229022/Now-Brussels-takes-aim-Famous-Five-Books-portraying-traditional-families-barred.htmllast_img read more

DOWN AND BACK: Syracuse scores 7 4th-quarter goals to pull off stunning comeback over Rutgers

first_imgOne more open look for Syracuse went unfinished. Again, Kris Alleyne stopped a shot the Orange normally buries. And again, Rutgers rushed the other way with numbers.Only this time, the game was tied with 22 seconds left and the Scarlet Knights breakaway promised to ruin SU’s Senior Day for good. Andrew Parrilla sprinted within 15 yards of Dominic Lamolinara’s goal with the kind of clear shooting lane Rutgers had buried shots through all day.But JoJo Marasco made a full-body dive, catching Parrilla from behind and checking the ball loose. Brian Megill scooped it up, sprinted 50 yards straight through midfield to the Rutgers crease and flipped the ball to Derek Maltz to skip into the left netting.“I tried to cut (Parrilla) off a little bit, let him know that I was right on his back,” Marasco said, “and I think that worked out great.”Rutgers missed routine passes, dropped balls and struggled to simply clear the ball. For three quarters, though, Syracuse was worse.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut in the fourth, the No. 7 Orange (9-2, 3-1 Big East) unleashed a full-field blitz to erase 45 minutes of wasteful shooting, stunning saves from Alleyne, loose defense and faceoff impotence. SU’s veterans spearheaded the comeback, tearing off seven goals in the fourth quarter. Cal Paduda slowed down Joseph Nardella at the faceoff X, and with the Scarlet Knights (2-11, 0-5 Big East) still making the same mistakes that had plagued them all game, Syracuse finally punished them for it in front of a Carrier Dome crowd of 4,048.“Everyone started to come together and our offense played like we’ve played all year,” Marasco said. “…So I think it came together quickly.”It had to.When the Orange took the field for the fourth quarter, the game seemed loss. SU trailed by five, and couldn’t get its scorers the ball.But just 1:14 into the final period, Luke Cometti took the Orange’s second shot of the quarter and buried it. Marasco fed him again two and a half minutes later to close the score to 10-7 Rutgers. Suddenly a comeback seemed viable.“Coaches really reiterated that we should stick with our game plan and that we were just playing sloppy, and we knew we had openings, we knew we could go at their guys,” Cometti said. “And our team, our offense was making it a lot easier to find me, guys like JoJo playing with their heads up makes it a lot easier.”Cometti scored a career-high six goals on the day, four in seven and a half fourth-quarter minutes. He glided through the Rutgers zone seemingly invisible and finished chances identical to ones he and his offensive teammates sprayed wide or had saved by Alleyne in the first three quarters.Each early missed chance had given confidence to Rutgers team that was overmatched on paper. The Scarlet Knights’ opener was Anthony Terranova cleaning up a messy rebound, the second capitalized on a man-down breakaway. RU led, but tentatively. By the second quarter, though, RU was popping the ball around the perimeter with authority, realizing the upset was becoming a reality.“You see that we started turning the ball over on clears, making saves and turning it over, giving the ball right back to them and they’re scoring,” Marasco said. “Second-chance opportunities can’t happen. It definitely felt like Villanova all over again.”But as seamlessly as Rutgers took control of the game, Syracuse tore it away. Paduda jammed up Nardella on faceoffs, long enough for wings like Matt Harris and Steve Ianzito to sweep in and take the ball. SU won eight faceoffs, and half of them came in the fourth quarter.The sudden injection of possession fed the starved offense, and it responded hungrily, finally devouring the chances it created on its rare possession earlier in the game.The fight back was stunning. Rutgers had no response aside from a Terranova goal with 5:40 remaining. Maltz made it irrelevant, burying on the net-crashing cuts he’s famous for – once on a 10-yard dart down the right hashes and again on the busted open last scramble with 10 seconds left.The sloppy game Rutgers owned for three quarters could be forgotten for 15 minutes of Orange brilliance.With 10 seconds left, Paduda crouched down for what he hoped was the last, game-killing faceoff to end an emotionally upside-down day.Said Paduda in the postgame press conference of those last 10 seconds: “It felt like two quarters.” Comments Published on April 13, 2013 at 6:44 pm Contact Jacob: [email protected] | @Jacob_Klinger_ Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

And I think they did very well. From what I understand the goal is the future,” Mourinho said.”I will try to find a job like what Solskjaer currently has, which at heart is constantly talking about the future and how you are protected in the present. I think it’s a great situation. He has a three-year contract and it’s all about the future and about young players. The results are important but I think it is amazing to have the opportunity to do that in a giant club like Manchester United.” last_img read more

Weather Penn State attack too much for OSU womens soccer in 21

OSU freshman midfielder Sarah Roberts (10) during a game against Minnesota on Sept. 17 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU lost 2-1. Credit: Sam Harris / For The LanternHeavy winds and rain were major factors in Saturday’s match against the nation’s No. 10 team.Penn State got on the board first in the early minutes of the game when sophomore forward Frannie Crouse went one on one with OSU redshirt junior goalkeeper Jillian McVicker, knocking it right past her through the net.Both the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions played an aggressive first half as OSU tried to break through the Nittany Lions’ defensive front but couldn’t get anything going offensively.The Nittany Lions put the next point on the board in the 39th minute as freshman midfielder Marissa Sheva finished inside the left post from 15 yards out.“In the first half, honestly, I couldn’t see,” OSU junior forward Lindsay Agnew said. “The rain was coming in and the wind was blowing hard. It stinks that they got those two goals, because I really feel if we would have held them to one goal then we could have buried them in the second half. Once the conditions changed, they couldn’t get ahold of the ball.”The Nittany Lions’ underclassmen were a threat to the Buckeyes on Saturday, just like they have been all season, as they have accounted for 24 goals on the year, two of which were scored against OSU.The teams went to halftime with Penn State in the lead, 2-0. The Lions also held the 8-2 advantage in shots, including 5-0 on goal.“I told them it was the best position I ever felt being down 2-0,” OSU coach Lori Walker said. “The wind was such a factor trying to get out early on. Having that at our back in the second half, I just said we have to take advantage of it and fight back and just get one at a time. I am pleased that we were able to come back out in the second half and really do that.”McVicker was replaced in the second half by freshman goalkeeper Devon Kerr.“I was confident and ready to play,” Kerr said. “I really wanted to make a change in the game in a positive way to get my team upbeat.”Walker downplayed the change, saying switching goalkeepers is not a big deal. She said a team has to take advantage of the skills each keeper can contribute to the game.“There’s nothing that (McVicker) did wrong in the first half,” Walker said. “It’s just a matter of utilizing players’ skill sets. At this school we change quarterbacks, and we change goalkeepers. It’s just what we do.”Back-and-forth play consumed much of the second half, as it the game remained at 2-0 until the 81st minute when OSU finally broke through the Nittany Lion defense. Freshman defender Kylie Knight found Agnew inside the box, who then knocked it in from eight yards out to cut the Penn State lead to 2-1.Agnew’s goal reignited her team as it tried to equalize.“I think it gave us another little bit of hope,” Agnew said. “But leading up to that goal, we had so much momentum and everyone was working really hard and winning every ball. Kylie played an amazing ball to me over the top and I was just happy to put one away.”Walker said the goal lit a fire under the team, but the clock remained its biggest enemy.“It really excited us, ignited us,” Walker said. “Because when you’re fighting back you just need that one thing to kind of change the momentum. Unfortunately, we just ran out of time.”For the game, the Nittany Lions held a 15-7 advantage in shots, including 9-2 on goal.Saturday’s game was also the return of redshirt junior defender and co-captain, Morgan Wolcott to Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Wolcott saw action in last weekend’s game, but it was her first game played back at home.Wolcott had been sidelined due to injury for much of the season.“I thought playing for the first time again, under the lights, in the rain, just got my adrenalin going,” Wolcott said. “Playing with my team and seeing how hard we fought all the way through, a full 90 minutes was unbelievable. I couldn’t be more proud of them.”The Buckeyes now prepare for their final regular season match of the season against the Michigan State Spartans.“Looks like it’s all going to boil down to that one,” Walker said. “It’s a championship game. I love championship games, and I think our players will show up for it. It’s home, it’s senior day, so there’s a lot of great elements to play for.”OSU is slated to kick off against the Spartans at 7:30 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. read more
