NORTHERN DISTRICTS SIGNS ON WITH TFA

first_imgNorthern Districts Touch Association (NDTA) is one of the oldest affiliates in Western Australia. It is also one of the largest, officially taking the title of second largets, with 87 teams taking part in the Summer 2004/2005 season. NDTA are also now a direct member of Touch Football Australia (TFA). Numbers are expected to grow again for 2005/2006, as the sport is thriving through extensive publicity, marketing and promotional campaigns undertaken throughout WA. AusTouch, the junior Touch program aimed at introducing children to the sport and building growth, is absolutely booming in WA and Northern Districts is only one of the many WA afilliates benefiting from the growth of the sport. The club operates from Doubleview, an inner suburb of Perth and has a major leadership role with respect to the development of the sport throughout WA. President of NDTA, Steve Whitfield, may have only been recently appointed but he and his affiliate have already been very supportive of the TFA unitary model of governance after he was introduced to the concept only a few months ago. NDTA is also seen as the breeding ground for new referees and is known to have more higher level badged referees than anywhere in WA. Both their Mens Open and Womens Open representative teams have also had recent success, winning Silver at the 2005 State Championships. With club membership bursting at the seams (and having only 5 fields), they continually refer players and teams to surrounding clubs with whom they have a positive relationship. Touch Football Australia is delighted to welcome NDTA on board and we look forward to servicing their affiliate and helping their growth to continue.last_img read more

Ohio State Michael Nodianos is no longer a student at The Ohio

Michael Nodianos is no longer an official Buckeye.The Steubenville High School graduate with a role in a video at the heart of an alleged rape case in Steubenville, Ohio, is “no longer a student at The Ohio State University,” according to the school’s Facebook and Twitter pages Monday.OSU spokeswoman Gayle Saunders confirmed to The Lantern Nodianos was no longer enrolled, but would not disclose the terms of his leave, citing Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations.OSU released a statement Friday that said “the student in question was in attendance only through Dec. 12,” the last day of the university’s final examinations. Saunders reiterated that statement to The Lantern Sunday, as well.“Find People,” the school’s faculty, staff and student directory, showed Thursday that Nodianos was a student in electrical and computer engineering.Nodianos, who has not been charged criminally, did not respond to The Lantern’s request for comment.Nodianos’ involvement in the Steubenville case, a town of about 18,000 along the Ohio River, has pulled OSU into a situation that’s increasingly garnered national attention in recent weeks.The video taken from an August night of back-to-school parties where, allegedly, 16-year-old Steubenville High School football players Ma’lik Richmond and Trent Mays raped a 16-year-old girl, shows him talking and laughing about the alleged rape for more than 12 minutes.Some found the video so offensive that it prompted a Facebook group titled, “OSU expel Michael Nodianos ‘Rape Crew’ member,” which amassed about 3,000 “likes” by Monday evening.The video itself, which can be found on YouTube under various names, shows Nodianos, wearing an OSU T-shirt, talking and laughing about the alleged incident.Nodianos makes several analogies that the alleged victim was “deader than” or was “raped harder than” as most voices off-camera laugh at his comments. Some rebuke him for his choice of words.Nodianos is reportedly being represented by Dennis McNamara. The attorney, according to multiple sources, held a press conference with members of the media in Steubenville Monday. He did not immediately respond to The Lantern’s request for comment.According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, McNamara said, “there was no excuse or justification” for Nodianos’ comments.The Plain Dealer wrote that Nodianos attended OSU on an academic scholarship.McNamara, according to the paper, said his client was interviewed by Steubenville police not long after the incident and that he was elsewhere at the time of the alleged assault.McNamara told reporters, according to the Plain Dealer, that Nodianos was “ashamed and embarrassed” at his actions in the video.It appears, though, some OSU students are confused as to whether or not Nodianos left on his own terms. While there is no confirmation that the university kicked Nodianos out, some students seemed to carry that impression.Samantha Arrowsmith, a second-year in psychology, applauded Nodianos’ departure from the university, but was also under the impression that the Steubenville High School graduate was forced out.“The kid that got kicked out of Ohio State, I’m happy about that … I wouldn’t want someone here that was like that,” she said.There is, however, no known evidence to suggest that Nodianos was expelled by OSU nor is there any formal indication that he will be charged with criminally.“I wasn’t aware that a student here had been involved at all … If he hasn’t officially been arrested or charged with anything, it might be a little premature for them to permanently expel because I guess, innocent until charged or proven guilty,” said Nathan Cotton, a first-year in public affairs.According to The New York Times, Richmond and Mays are under house arrest and awaiting a trial that has been set for Feb. 13.Dan Hope contributed to this story. read more

San Diego County Supervisor Dianne Jacob opposes power shutoffs during wildfires

first_imgGoing on @KUSINews in a moment to talk about SDG&E power shutoffs during heightened fire risks.

Including the 2018 Camp Fire in Paradise and the SDG&E-caused 2007 Witch Creek Fire in San Diego County.Jacob explained by shutting off electricity, SDG&E is trying to cover itself for its failure to fully harden their rural power lines and other infrastructure. Jacob then said the fact that SDG&E is still working on hardening their infrastructure, more than a decade after its equipment caused some of our biggest fires, is outrageous.Jacob is concerned that cutting off power will hurt rural residents and impact public safety. She pointed out that a lot of older residents need power in order to run medical devices, while many families need electricity to operate water wells.
