Leave the shoes Rowers’ shoes are scattered along the dock while the teams are out on the water. Rigging Zuzanna Wojcieszak fits the scull back in the boathouse. Row, row, row… Alena Tofte ’13 (from left), Caroline McHugh ’12, and Fallon O’Dowd row, row, row their boat. River House Eliot House residents who participate in the Eliot Boat Club, the intramural crew program, arrive at the launch at the boathouse along the Charles River. Scullied Members of one of Harvard’s intramural crew teams lift their scull into the Charles River. Crew cuts Crossing the bridge Rowers cross through one of the Charles’ bridges on their morning row. Harvard President Charles Eliot once famously decried the sport of baseball for its deceptive practices.“Well, this year I’m told the team did well because one pitcher had a fine curveball. I understand that a curveball is thrown with a deliberate attempt to deceive,” he said. “Surely this is not an ability we should want to foster at Harvard.”For Eliot, rowing was one of the true honorable sports. (Tennis was the other.) And at Eliot House, the river House named for Harvard’s longest-serving president, crew is king.The Eliot House courtyard graciously opens out onto the Charles and the boathouse. Many new residents arrive at the House with no rowing experience, but find themselves drawn to the water in the early morning, seeking that serene feeling when a boat glides across the water, with the team of eight rowers, guided by their coxswain, working as one.Former House Master Lino Pertile made crew a priority. At the Charles Eliot dinner, Pertile would evoke the ghost of Eliot as a mythical inspiration, with him talking to rowers and offering words of wisdom and encouragement: “Fly like the wind and bring glory to Eliot House.” Dawn meet-up Yonatan Kogan ’12 (from second from left), Johnny Bassett ’12, Eddie Grom ’12, and Austin Glamser ’12 take a minute before heading out on the river.

first_imgBy Noelani Kirschner/ShareAmerica August 07, 2020 The illegitimate Nicolás Maduro regime continues to undermine both human rights and democracy in Venezuela.Enforced disappearances of Venezuelan civilians by the regime are on the rise, according to a report by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights group and Foro Penal, a Venezuelan human rights organization.The regime has kidnapped civilians it suspects of being political dissidents, as well as their family members, and tortured them for days. Many have not been seen or heard from again.The report details 200 enforced disappearances in 2018, 524 in 2019, and over 230 cases as of June 2020. The increase in disappearances correlates with Maduro’s deepening political crisis and authoritarian control, the report says.The report also says that women detained by regime thugs were more likely to disappear, suggesting women are being used to punish and intimidate family members into complying with the Maduro regime.“Enforced disappearance, and even more so when it is systematic, results in an intense violation of the detainee’s right to defense,” said Alfredo Romero, president of Foro Penal. “Enforced disappearance turns arbitrary detention — which in and of itself is a serious violation of human rights — into an opportunity for unlimited barbarity for the perpetrator.”Rigging elections in advanceMeanwhile, Maduro continues to sabotage Venezuelans’ right to conduct future free and fair elections. The Maduro-aligned Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ, in Spanish) replaced the leadership of the National Electoral Council (CNE, in Spanish) with Maduro’s cronies, said U.S. Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo.“These are unconstitutional actions,” Pompeo said. “They make a mockery of democratic processes, and the Venezuelan people are fighting to protect those very freedoms that they so richly deserve.”The Organization of American States (OAS) recently passed a resolution that condemns the Maduro-selected electoral council and other actions of the Maduro-aligned supreme court.“More than ever we must protect the prerogatives of the [National Assembly] as the last democratic vestige in the country,” said OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro on Twitter, “and reject and annul the spurious decisions of the illegitimate TSJ and CNE.”Sanctions against corruptionIn response to the Maduro regime’s support of corruption, the U.S. government will continue to sanction bad actors complicit in Maduro’s exploitation of Venezuelans.On June 18, the U.S. Treasury Department sanctioned Joaquín Leal Jiménez and Alex Nain Saab Morán in Mexico for working with the Maduro regime to trade food and water for oil.To evade U.S. sanctions, Maduro used the state-run Venezuelan oil company PDVSA to trade crude oil with Leal and Saab, supposedly in exchange for fresh water and food for Venezuelans. However, while the Venezuelan oil was delivered to Mexico, the Venezuelan people did not benefit from this transaction.This comes on the heels of dire food and water shortages. A survey conducted in April found that 86 percent of Venezuelans have unreliable access to water and 11 percent have no access to water at all.“The best pathway out of the Venezuelan crisis is through a broadly acceptable transitional government to administer a free and fair presidential and parliamentary elections,” Pompeo said.last_img read more

first_imgLiverpool, United Kingdom | AFP | Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah ensured Liverpool maintained their 100 percent start to the Premier League season by coming from behind to beat Newcastle 3-1 at Anfield on Saturday.The European champions have a history of starting slowly in early kick-offs under Jurgen Klopp and only arose from their slumber after the Magpies took a shock lead through Jetro Willems on seven minutes.Mane turned the tide before half-time with a sumptuous finish into the top corner before profiting from an error by Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka for his second.Dubravka redeemed himself after the break with a string of fine saves to keep the final score down, but was helpless when Salah finished coolly from Roberto Firmino’s cute backheel.Klopp’s men open up a five-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table, but the champions can cut that gap back to two with victory at Norwich later on Saturday.Newcastle sprung a huge surprise by claiming their only win of the season so far at Tottenham three weeks ago. They followed the same script as they frustrated the hosts in the early stages before stunning Anfield by going in front.Willems turned inside Trent Alexander-Arnold before drilling a fierce shot past the helpless Adrian.Liverpool trailed at home for the first time since March, but quickly rallied to record a 14th straight Premier League victory. Mane was furious with Salah after being substituted in a 3-0 win away to Burnley before the international break, accusing the Egyptian of being too greedy in his eye for goal.But it is the Senegalese who has more goals so far this season and he arrowed into the far corner from Andy Robertson’s pass to get Liverpool back on level terms.Firmino had been rested from the start after his travels to the United States with Brazil during the international break, but he was soon called into the action as Divock Origi limped off injured.And Firmino made an instant impact as his pass towards Mane was spilled by Dubravka for the Liverpool number 10 to roll into an empty net.Liverpool had only one scare once they were in front as Emil Krafth blasted over a great chance to bring Newcastle level again at the back post.However, it was only a matter of time before the Reds made the game safe as Dubravka saved brilliantly from Robertson and twice denied the excellent Firmino, who was named man-of-the-match despite only coming on eight minutes before half-time.The Brazilian bagged another assist when his flick freed Salah, who took his time before leaving Dubravka grounded and placing the ball into the far corner.Mane was denied his hat-trick and Firmino a triple of assists by the offside flag, but Liverpool cruised through the final stages with one eye already on the start of their defence of the Champions League away to Napoli on Tuesday.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_img 49ers on Wednesday: Where have all the defensive interceptions gone? “That’s usually where quarterbacks earn their money,” coach Kyle Shanahan said of third-down prowess. “… He was on tonight throwing and got to the right spots. When it wasn’t there, he made plays with his legs.”It also effectively served notice to skeptics who questioned Garoppolo’s worth on a team that’s largely won via its rushing attack and dominant defense. Garoppolo shrugged off such talk, that it’s merely “just people” outside the locker room doubting him.Garoppolo’s career-best game unfolded only after tight end George Kittle injured his knee on their first play, and only after the Cardinals (3-5-1) took a 7-0 lead on their opening possession. Once Garoppolo’s fourth touchdown pass found Dante Pettis, it seemed safe to celebrate, which Pettis did with Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” dance move.A THRILLER from @JimmyG_10 to @dmainy_13 👀#GoNiners pic.twitter.com/4U9W2zMHIV— San Francisco 49ers (@49ers) November 1, 2019 How much Jimmy G-to-Kittle is too much Jimmy G-to-Kittle? With a little health and stability, Jimmie Ward finally showing 49ers, NFL what he can do Hall of Fame QB who once tormented 49ers now sees them as the NFC’s top playoff seed FIRST LOOK: Hip-hop icon E-40 teams with 49ers on new music video GLENDALE, Ariz. — Yep, the 49ers are undefeated halfway through the season, and Jimmy Garoppolo reminded everyone Thursday night he can be a sensational reason why.Garoppolo’s career-high four touchdown passes were just enough to lift the 49ers to a 28-25 win over the Arizona Cardinals.His knack for converting third-down plays, meanwhile, truly saved them in a spooky fourth quarter on Halloween night. That lifted the Cardinals’ spell on the 49ers, who lost their past eight meetings and last won in Arizona in 2013.The 49ers (8-0) converted 11-of-17 third-down plays, and Garoppolo’s ability to move the chains with third-down completions to Emmanuel Sanders and Ross Dwelley killed the final minutes. Although Kittle overcame his knee’s apparent hyperextension, the 49ers lost starting linebacker Kwon Alexander to a pectoral injury in the fourth quarter. Alexander will undergo an MRI exam Friday.Now 5-0 on the road this season, the 49ers next play at home against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night, Nov. 11.Here are the highs and lows — or tricks and treats, in the spirit of Halloween — of the Niners’ win.STUDS QB JIMMY GAROPPOLO: Touchdown passes three consecutive drives put the 49ers ahead 21-7 at halftime. Touchdown pass No. 4 came after he went through his progression, saw Pettis beat Patrick Peterson and threw to the back, right of the end zone. On the scoring strike to Kittle, Garoppolo also looked off the defense, then found Kittle open across the middle. Touchdowns Nos. 2 and 3 were to Kendrick Bourne (7 yards) and Emmanul Sanders (fourth-and-goal from the 1).“He makes some pretty gutsy throws out there, doesn’t he? Goodness gracious,” Kittle said.Garoppolo’s best pass: a 22-yard completion right into Sanders’ hands, before Sanders could barely look for the ball that moved them to Arizona’s 24-yard line in the third quarter. Garoppolo’s most clutch passes: third-down completions on the game-ending drive, capped by an 11-yarder to Ross Dwelley on third-and-9. Garoppolo was playing in Arizona for the first time since his starting debut in the New England Patriots 2016 season opener, which he won in comeback fashion.Garoppolo called this win “really fun” and had a “great time out there.” But he wouldn’t go so far to say it was was best football game ever. Instead, he downplayed it as: “Same as every other game. It wasn’t anything different for me out there. Just more opportunities, different opportunities and guys were making plays with the ball in their hands.”TE GEORGE KITTLE: He overcame a first-play leg injury, and just before the first quarter ended, he scored the game-tying touchdown on a 30-yard catch-and-run. That score came on third-and-3; Garoppolo was 15-of-15 this season when targeting Kittle on third down until the second series, when a third-and-2 pass was broken up by safety Budda Baker. He finished with six catches for 73 yards, as knee and an ankle injury kept him out of the closing minutes.George Kittle: UNSTOPPABLE 😱 @gkittle46 | #GoNiners📺: #SFvsAZ on @NFLNetwork | @NFLonFOX | @PrimeVideoHow to watch: https://t.co/I6INVckndX pic.twitter.com/RL3TnEyqMz— NFL (@NFL) November 1, 2019“I’m great, babe. Always,” Kittle said. “In football, stuff happens and you decide to go back out there or you don’t. I tried to give my team everything I could, and in the fourth quarter, I couldn’t go anymore, and I’m happy to have a guy like Ross Dwelley step up. I can’t say enough about Ross and the plays he made. I’m so happy for him.“Once something happens, you try to push through as much as you can. But if it comes to the point I feel I’m a liability for the and I’m not the best man for the job, I talked to my coach about it, and we made a decision. I definitely thought Dwelley was definitely more mobile than I was in the fourth quarter.”Kittle’s 30-yard touchdown catch was impressive in that not only did he beat Baker off the line but he fended him off again at the 9 en route to the end zone. “He made a couple good plays and I just had to remind him I was going to be here all night,” Kittle said.WR EMMANUEL SANDERS: In his encore, Sanders caught more passes (seven) than any other 49ers wide receiver had in a game this season caught. He finished with 112 yards, and he had a 1-yard, fourth-and-goal touchdown catch to close the first half for the 21-7 lead. He also drew a pass-interference penalty that brought the 49ers to the 5-yard line just before halftime. Meanwhile, Marquise Goodwin is a healthy scratch with the 49ers instead opting to play Sanders and four other wide receivers.Jimmy Garoppolo is building tremendous chemistry with Emmanuel Sanders! #49ers pic.twitter.com/MwXwOV1B82— ourSF49ers (@OSf49ers) November 1, 2019Related Articles TE ROSS DWELLEY: Filling in for Kittle, he didn’t just make a heroic catch on the final third-down conversion to kill the clock but it’s what he did after the catch: gain a couple extra yards so his 11-yard reception would succeed on third-and-9.Shanahan said: “Dwelley’s been huge for us this last month. We were messing with Dwelley all week, saying the No. 1 goal in this game was to win but the No. 2 goal was to improve Dwelley’s yards per catch average, because I think he was at 0 or 1, and to do that on the last play was pretty cool. I know the guys were pumped up.”“He’s kind of like ‘Baby George,’ ” guard Mike Person said. “He got the (yards) he needed today.”Dwelley’s reaction to the nickname: “Who said that? That’s a freakin’ heck of a compliment. I’m fine with that.”RB MATT BREIDA: Sore ankle? Of course he’d overcome it like he did so often last season, but, wow, Breida looked as quick as ever on a 31-yard run in the second quarter. He had 65 yards on six carries at halftime, then finished with 78 yards on 15 total carries.PUNT COVERAGE: Tarvarius Moore and Raheem Mostert combined to tackle Cardinals punt returner Pharoh Cooper for a 1-yard loss at the Arizona 9. The Cardinals totaled 17 yards on three punt returns.DUDSHEALTH SCARES: Alexander’s fourth-quarter departure with a chest injury is most concerning. That Kittle leg injury was a frightening way to start, but he returned to action the following series. Defensive tackle Arik Armstead missed time in the first quarter as he felt he had something stuck in his throat.CB EMMANUEL MOSELEY: His roughest start saw him allow his man, Andy Isabella, go for an 88-yard touchdown in the closing minutes, and the Cardinals’ ensuing two-point conversion pulled them within 28-25.Showing off that 4.31 speed 🚨@AndyIsabella5 goes 88 YARDS for the @AZCardinals TOUCHDOWN! #RedSea @K1📺: #SFvsAZ on @NFLNetwork | @NFLonFOX | @PrimeVideoHow to watch: https://t.co/I6INVckndX pic.twitter.com/KTDSF1Q9qr— NFL (@NFL) November 1, 2019OPENING DEFENSE: Opponents came out running at the 49ers once again, and Kenyan Drake busted past D.J. Jones and Fred Warner on the opening snap for a 36-yard gain. The 49ers also struggled in opening drives in their previous two road games, at Los Angeles (touchdown run) and Washington (missed field goal). Three-and-outs were forced in the 49ers’ first two games at Tampa Bay and Cincinnati. Drake’s touchdown run came on a sprint to the right pylon.WARNER’S HANDS: The 49ers linebacker, after letting Drake slip past him on the opening snap, dropped a potential interception later in the half. It would have been his first career interception in 24 games.Robert Saleh and Fred Warner played Murray perfectly… except for the important part. pic.twitter.com/mQJ2BIKuFY— Dieter Kurtenbach (@dieter) November 1, 2019DEEBO SAMUEL’S HANDS: The 49ers’ rookie dropped a potential, 13-yard touchdown pass after getting wide open in the end zone just before halftime. He did, however, show grit later and finished with four total catches for 40 yards.THIRD-DOWN PENALTY: Dee Ford kept alive the Cardinals’ opening drive with an illegal, horse-collar tackle of Kyler Murray. Ford rallied, however, and had one of the 49ers’ three sacks on Murray; Dre Greenlaw and DeForest Buckner had the others.CARDS QB KYLER MURRAY: Sure, he can be elusive, but his favorite target was to sail a pass well out of bounds as the 49ers applied pressure. Murray was 17-of-24 for 241 yards, with 88 coming on that touchdown to Isabella. Murray had five carries for 34 yards and got sacked three times but escaped others. “He’s like a little squirrel back there, running everywhere,” DeForsest Buckner said.Murray was the No. 1 overall draft pick — taken one spot ahead of the 49ers’ Nick Bosa, who had an uncharacteristically quiet night (one tackle).SEASON PASS DIGITAL OFFERIf you have not already, we strongly encourage you to sign up for a digital subscription, which gives you access to all content on the Mercury News and East Bay Times websites.

first_imgHere’s a true story: One non-hustler says to another non-hustler, “How’s it going?” The second non-hustler says, “I am on the right side of the dirt.” The first non-hustler says, “Well, that’s as good as it gets.”No. That is not “as good as it gets.” “It” gets way better than just being on “the other side of the dirt.”What You Tell YourselfNon-hustler’s make very poor language choices. Those choices provide a clear view into their mindset, and the language they use puts them in a disempowered state. Words like, “I am on the right side of the dirt,” or “Any day above ground is a good day.” That’s not setting the bar very high, is it?If you ask a non-hustler how they are, they’ll say, “I’m okay.” Why on Earth would you want to be “Okay.” They’ll tell you that they “hate Mondays,” “can’t wait for Fridays,” that Wednesday is “hump day,” and that you shouldn’t “work too hard.” Who wants to be “okay?” That sounds like mediocrity, doesn’t it?They’ll also tell you they are “living the dream,” but said in such a way to make sure you know that they aren’t deeply engaged with what they’re doing and that they are cynical. This is how non-hustlers identify each other.Empowering Words, Empowered MindsetHustlers are different. If you ask them how they are, they will say something like,“Excellent,” or “Wonderful.” They tell you that they are “killing it,” or that they are “crushing it.” This is a very different mindset than that of the non-hustler, and so it comes with very different language choices.The hustler doesn’t notice anything different about Mondays and Fridays. On both days, they’re engaged with their work and their life. Because they are engaged in their lives, they don’t see Wednesday as being significant because it is half way to the weekend; they like all the days.You’ll never hear a hustler say, “Don’t work too hard,” or that they are “just happy to be on the right side of the dirt.”Your brain is designed to keep you alive. That is its primary function. But that doesn’t mean that your goal should be simply survival. You are capable of way more.You are here to do something meaningful, to passionately engage with life, and to thrive.last_img read more
