Spurs assess Townsend ankle injury

first_imgTottenham winger Andros Townsend is undergoing further assessment on an ankle injury that could jeopardise his World Cup spot. The 22-year-old exploded on to the international stage in October, netting on his England debut against Montenegro before helping overcome Poland as Roy Hodgson’s men secured a place in Brazil. However, Townsend has not enjoyed the best end to the campaign and last started a Premier League match in the 1-0 defeat to Arsenal on March 16. That lack of game time has seen his World Cup hopes weaken and, worse still, the winger sustained an ankle injury after coming on 12 minutes from time in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Stoke. Townsend left the Britannia Stadium in a protective boot and underwent an MRI scan on Monday, with further assessments set for Tuesday. The Spurs academy graduate has made 33 appearances in all this term, having impressed on loan at QPR at the back end of last season. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Syracuse basketball roundtable: Florida State, Tyler Roberson and more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 1, 2016 at 9:16 pm With one last regular-season game at Florida State on Saturday, Syracuse (19-11, 9-8 Atlantic Coast) remains on the NCAA Tournament bubble.Though SU nearly knocked off No. 8 North Carolina on Monday night, it has lost three of its last four. Beat writers Sam Blum, Jesse Dougherty and Matt Schneidman discuss three topics surrounding the Orange as it nears postseason play.1. What must Syracuse do to beat Florida State on Saturday, a game many are considering a must-win?Sam Blum: This goes back to the age-old answer of the season: The Orange probably needs to shoot pretty well to win games. The Seminoles play a couple of trees down low and have multiple offensive threats. But this game is a battle of the bubble, and if the Orange can knock off a fellow dweller twice in one season that’ll be very important come Selection Sunday. The Orange showed on Monday that it can play well, even when it doesn’t play even close to its best game. An effort like that would probably be enough to beat FSU.Jesse Dougherty: Obviously Syracuse needs to shoot well from the perimeter (per usual), but these teams’ last meeting showed the Orange will have a good chance to win if it limits Dwayne Bacon and Malik Beasley’s scoring opportunities. The freshman pair forms a two-man scoring machine for the Seminoles, but SU held them to four combined points in the second half on Feb. 11 after they scored a collective 21 in the first. The Orange put up 85 points on a spotty FSU defense in that game, but how much SU can limit the Seminoles’ backcourt will be the key in Tallahassee.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMatt Schneidman: I’m not sure if Syracuse can again shoot a blistering 62 percent from the field like it did the last time it played FSU. Let’s be honest, that’s not going to happen. But a more realistic formula for the Orange to pull off a vital game is to contain the two-headed freshman monster of Bacon and Beasley. Last time out, the Orange held the pair to below their season averages. The FSU bigs aren’t much of an offensive threat, so neutralizing its potentially lethal backcourt could lock up a spot in the NCAA Tournament before heading to Washington, D.C. for the conference tournament.Liam Sheehan | Asst. Photo Editor 2. Syracuse nearly knocked off national championship contender UNC with Tyler Roberson going for nine points and 11 rebounds. How much production must Syracuse get from him each game for the Orange to make a postseason run?S.B.: It feels like Syracuse has played a long slew of games in which its opponent has been interior-focused. SU needs Tyler Roberson plugged in every game, since it’s so evident what he does for a team when he’s playing well. Getting points on the offensive glass and being the only Orange jersey in a group of players and still getting a board is something he’s a pro at. When he doesn’t play well, it’s hard to imagine Syracuse doing much of anything down the stretch of this season. Having him around a double-double would be ideal.J.D.: Since Syracuse only lost by five on the road to the Tar Heels — widely considered one of the best teams in the country — I think it’s safe to say that something around nine points and 11 rebounds (or more simply 10 and 10) is what the Orange needs from Roberson. UNC collected 19 offensive rebounds on Monday, the most SU has given up this season, but Syracuse grabbed a respectable 12. Roberson was responsible for half of those, which proves the SU offense has a whole new layer when he is aggressive on that end.M.S.: Roberson is Syracuse’s best option to battle with an opponent on the boards and if 11 rebounds is what Jim Boeheim “expects,” just imagine if he could go off for a couple more and actually draw some legitimate praise from his head coach. Sure, there were some outliers of late were Roberson wasn’t his usual self on the glass. But the key with the junior is finishing. He’ll almost always log near double-digit rebounds, but it’s when he converts those offensive boards into second-chance points of his own that Syracuse receives an extra boost.3. How can Syracuse win games against NCAA Tournament-caliber teams when it shoots poorly from 3?S.B.: Syracuse shot 5-of-20 from 3 on Monday and still almost beat the nation’s No. 8 team on the road. When one thing doesn’t go well, another thing must. Playing good defense, and stopping second-chance opportunities is crucial. Getting second chances and making free throws is too. It’s certainly possible for Syracuse to win without making 3s, but it isn’t possible if the Orange is taking more than 30 3s. If it isn’t working, then SU players like Trevor Cooney, Michael Gbinije and Malachi Richardson should look to get to the basket, something they’re all capable of.J.D.: To still be effective offensively, which would be necessary to win in this situation, the Orange has to get to the rim and draw fouls. Both Gbinije and Richardson are very savvy off the dribble, and Cooney has also shown the ability to mix up inside on offense. No, Syracuse didn’t beat the Tar Heels on Monday, but it came within five points because SU went to the line 23 times and made 19 free throws. There are a lot of ways to compensate for poor perimeter shooting, and getting to the stripe for high-percentage scoring opportunities is a very tangible one.M.S.: Syracuse is just going to have to hope that Tyler Lydon and Roberson can assert themselves on the inside and Dajuan Coleman can chip in eight points or so. Oh, and there’s that thing called defense, which Syracuse isn’t too bad at. The Orange needs to hold an NCAA Tournament caliber team to 65 or fewer points and get some inside scoring if it wants to save its season in March when the long ball, hypothetically, isn’t falling.

Art show highlights Africa-America connection

first_imgThe Africans in America art exhibition highlights the connection between the US and Africa. Featuring a host of established and upcoming artists from the continent and the rest of the world, the exhibitionis at the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg until 17 December 2016.(Photo: Goodman Gallery)CD AndersonA new exhibition at Johannesburg’s Goodman Gallery, titled Africans in America, is an exploration of the cultural and contextual parallels between the continent and the United States.The exhibition also forms part of the academic conference Black Portraiture[s] III. Reinventions: Strains of Histories and Cultures, held for the first time in South Africa at the University of the Witwatersrand, in Johannesburg, from 17-19 November 2016.Black Portraiture[s] III is a collaboration between the US Department of State and Patrick Gaspard, the US ambassador to South Africa, as well as Harvard University, New York University and the Institute for African American Affairs. The forum offers an opportunity for artists, activists and academics from Africa, the US and the rest of the world to share ideas and perspectives on the African political and cultural identity within a global context.Emphasising that overall theme, the Africans in America exhibition itself runs until 17 December, presenting works at the Goodman and the Johannesburg Art Gallery. Artists featured include Ghada Amer, Theaster Gates, Alfredo Jaar, Julie Mehretu, Wangechi Mutu, Odili Donald Odita and Kehinde Wiley.The exhibition is curated by Goodman director Liza Essers and Hank Willis Thomas. The work of the American visual artist and photographer has been widely praised for consistently challenging perceptions of identity, history and symbols, while igniting dialogue about African and diaspora identities, particularly in global political and pop culture contexts.A Place To Call Home (Africa-America)Thomas’s 2009 work, titled A Place To Call Home (Africa-America), represents the overarching identity of the Goodman exhibition.A wall-mounted sculpture of black metal against a white background, the piece epitomises the distinctive geographical, historical and political connection suggested by the African American identity. It challenges the mythological association between black Americans and the African continent.As Thomas describes it, “our roots may be from there, but many of us don’t necessarily feel any more at home on the continent than we do on the continent of our birth. Our home is a place in between.”Emerging African artistsAfrican artists involved in the Africans in America exhibition include Eritrean photographer Dawit L Petros, whose art incorporates migration and multicultural globalisation as metaphors for African modernity.Dawit L.

It has been under the directorship of Essers since 2008. The gallery is focused on shaping change through art and culture, as well as opening up avenues of dialogue between established and emerging South African artists, and artists across the continent and the globe.For more information on the Africans in America exhibition and the gallery, visit the Goodman Gallery website.Source: Goodman Gallerylast_img read more

Planning for your Child’s Special Needs: Applying Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)

first_img4.) Encouraging resilience: Teach children about emotions – have them point out how they feel perhaps by using a smiley face rating scale or flash cards.Supplement the pointing by verbal prompts such as: “When my face looks like this I am feeling…” or “Today I feel like…” Written by: Lakshmi Mahadevan, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Extension Specialist – Special Populations, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.Major General Paul D Eaton – retired of the United States army states that “the future of our kids will be greatly enriched and enhanced if we infuse their earliest years with sensitive and thoughtful skills that will help them develop into a healthy, connected, and constructive generation of adults.”.The sensitive and thoughtful skills Major Eaton is referring to constitute social-emotional learning.  Social-emotional learning (SEL), as defined by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) is “the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.”Children with disabilities often find themselves struggling emotionally. Specifically, they tend not to be accepted by their peers, and they display shortcomings in the way they interact with peers and adults. Further, they have difficulty reading nonverbal and other subtle social cues.Some children with more severe cognitive impairments may lack age-appropriate social understanding of complex interactions. Further, students whose language is impaired may have appropriate understanding of social situations but may have difficulty communicating effectively with others.It is important therefore to teach children with disabilities the skills to recognize emotions, experience empathy, pursue goals and effective navigate interpersonal relationships (CASEL, 2012).Parents/guardians can encourage social-emotional learning in their homes by:1.) Being deliberate: Use progressive supports –Help your child identify a sibling’s emotions or of someone they see on television. – “Julie seems sad.”Ask leading questions – “Why do you think she is sad?”; “how can we make her smile?”Suggest solutions – “Maybe you can ask to play with her.” 2.) Using Scaffolding: ReferencesSupporting the Emotional Needs of Kids with DisabilitiesRaising Caring, Confident, Capable Children Take the time to debrief and teach SEL. Demonstrate and describe:Sharing (cooking and sharing dinnertime with family members, passing on the tv remote for someone else’s favorite program etc.)Kindness (helping a family member find something, organize for school next day)Friendship (visiting with friends at home, having a game night with friends)Cooperation (willing to change schedule to accommodate a family member’s needs)Teamwork (sharing chores, cleaning up together etc.)Sharing your feelings (“I feel upset right now”, “this makes me so happy”) 3.) Modeling SEL at home: 5.) Reviewing the school day: What was one cool thing you learned today?What is one question you didn’t get to ask today that you would like answered?What was your most favorite activity today, why?What was one thing you did with someone else today that you really enjoyed?What was something you learned today that can help you at home?What do you think we will learn next? 6.) Validating expression of child’s emotions: When emotions are expressed, do ask questions (for e.g. “what’s wrong?”; “You seem so happy today, I like it, what’s up?”)When emotions are expressed, don’t:Invalidate – “stop crying”Minimize – make the child laugh for examplePunish – impose time-out etc. Reading stories that evoke emotions:“What do you think Johnny is feeling right now?“What can Johnny do to make himself feel better?”“What did you learn from the story about how Johnny felt during…” Building feelings of competency and mastery – “that is the best work, so well done!”; “Look how far you have come…”Encouraging optimism – “I know our amusement park trip got canceled because of rain but you know we have a lot fun indoors everyday and we will postpone the park to another day!”Teaching children to reframe – “I am sorry our picnic got canceled, how can we make a picnic indoors?”Disarming with charm – “You seem really upset, would you like to talk about it, get a glass of water, put your head down for a bit?”Modeling resiliency – “ I feel bad that I got sick and we couldn’t go on our vacation last week, but I am happy to be well again and we now have a whole new plan for next time.”last_img read more
