Vincent’s Club ends gender exclusivity

admin No Comments

first_imgVincent’s Club (or “Vinnie’s”) voted last Wednesday to finally allow admission of female members of the Oxford Blues sporting community as full members.Previously, non-members had to be invited to use the clubhouse, though members of Atalanta’s Club – an equivalent society to Vincent’s for female Blues – nonetheless had access to the club’s facilities.Ayowande McCunn, Vincent’s president, said, “On 9 March 2016 the resident members of Vincent’s Club completed a vote that removed the word ‘male’ from the Constitution of the Club. The effect of the change in the rules is that women are now eligible to be elected to membership of Vincent’s Club. A 2/3 majority was required for the resolution to pass and 85 per cent of resident members voted in favour of the change.“The process leading to the change began in Michaelmas Term 2015 and involved a consultation of members during Hilary Term.”The decision to allow for female membership comes only a year after the club rejected the same change. Though a majority at the time wished to strike the word “male” from the constitution, they did not constitute the two-thirds majority required for a constitutional change.The new vote has proven more popular than last year’s, although some think it still comes too late.Juliet Flamank, a first year athlete at Balliol, told Cherwell, “I think that it’s sadly too common that clubs such as these started off a male only clubs. Although it’s great for future generations that women are now allowed to be members, it’s a shame and rather ridiculous that its taken it this long.“As a woman in sport I feel that my sporting achievements should be equally celebrated and I should have the ability to participate in all the ways that men in sport do. Vinnie’s says it stands for sporting excellence – well for a club more than 150 years old, I can’t believe that only now have they realised that women’s sporting excellence is also recognisable. It’s great this change has finally happened and I hope it encourages others like it.“It’s just very late to the game.”Eden Bailey, OUSU’s VP for Access and Academic Affairs-elect, expressed the same sentiment more succinctly. “It is 2016,” she said.last_img read more

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Senior Day Set For Noon Saturday For UE Men’s BasketballFace Indiana State In Home Finale EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The final game of the regular season is set for Saturday as the University of Evansville men’s basketball team welcomes Indiana State to the Ford Center for a 12 p.m. game.  It will also mark Senior Day as a group that includes Christian Benzon, Jaylon Brown, David Howard, Sergej Vucetic and Willie Wiley will be honored before the game and will speak following the contest.Evansville dropped both ends of their final road trip of the season, including a 109-83 loss at #25 Wichita State on Tuesday.  Jaylon Brown reached the 20-point plateau for the third game in a row, totaling 25 points while knocking down 10 out of 11 free throws.  Dru Smith connected on 5 out of 7 3-pointers en route to a career-best 19 points while Duane Gibson finished the night with 10.  UE will open up the MVC Tournament on Thursday evening; the time and opponent will be determined following Saturday’s games.Against one of the top teams in the conference and one of the best atmospheres in the nation, freshman Dru Smith was on fire Tuesday at Wichita State.  Smith connected on 5 of his 7 shots from outside while finishing with a career-high 19 points against the Shockers.  Prior to the game, he hit just 11 triples on the season.Evansville notched 83 points on Tuesday versus the Shockers becoming the first team to score 80 points in regulation at Charles Koch Arena since WSU beat #18 Texas Tech, 85-83, in December of 2009.  It was the most points scored by an opponent in a regulation MVC game at the venue since the Aces had 81 on 12/31/04.  Consequently, that was the last time UE reeled of 80 or more tallies against WSU.Jaylon Brown’s career scoring output currently stands at 1,294 points, which is 25th on the all-time Aces list.  With at least two guaranteed games remaining, Brown has a realistic shot to move into the top 20.  Brown is just 41 points behind Buster Briley, who ranks 20th with 1,335 points in his career.Indiana State enters the regular season finale with an overall mark of 11-18 and stand at 5-12 in the MVC.  Brenton Scott is the top scorer for the Sycamores, checking in at 16.0 points per game, which is second in the league behind Jaylon Brown.  Last time out, Indiana State dominated their way to a 69-59 win over UNI in their Senior Night at the Hulman Center.Niels Bunschoten led the way with 20 points while Scott chipped in 14; Everett Clemons had a double-double, registering 12 points and 13 caroms.  Earlier this year, ISU grabbed an 85-84 overtime win over UE at the Hulman Center as five Sycamore players hit double figures, led by a 22-point game by Scott.One of the top rivalries for both programs see Indiana State holding a 90-78 lead in the series.  The Aces own a 53-29 mark in home games versus the Sycamores and have won 3 out of 5 meetings played at the Ford Center.  Indiana State has won six in a row over UE in Terre Haute.last_img read more

Coopland and Cooplands bid for Ainsleys shops

admin No Comments

first_imgCooplands (Doncaster) and Coopland & Son (Scarborough) are on the verge of signing a joint deal to buy 22 of Ainsleys’ 29 shops out of administration.The two companies, which are separate businesses with different sets of shareholders, but which have family links, are understood to have collaborated on and agreed a joint bid with administrator Grant Thornton. It would see Cooplands of Doncaster acquire 12 stores in the city and southern perimeter of Leeds, while Coopland & Son of Scarborough would buy 10 stores in the area to the east and north of Leeds.An industry source said the companies joined forces in a bid to strengthen their chances of agreeing a deal, giving the administrator the opportunity to sell the majority of Ainsleys’ retail estate in one go. The acquisition is set to be formally completed later this month.The remaining seven Ainsleys stores are likely to be sold off to other buyers, with Greggs previously voicing its interest in some of the outlets. It is thought the central bakery in Leeds will be sold separately. Family business Ainsleys of Leeds, which employs nearly 300 people, went into administration in November, due to the pressure from declining sales and increased competition. It has continued to trade, as administrators look for a buyer. “Ainsleys won’t be the last bakery business to have over-stretched itself in the current climate,” said the source. “Consolidation in the sector will continue in the coming year with trading on the high street still very tough.”last_img read more

Saint Mary’s supports LGBTQ youth with Spirit Day

admin No Comments

first_imgAlthough Saint Mary’s colors are blue and white, students will don purple attire Thursday in support of Spirit Day, which raises awareness about bullied LGBTQ youth.Senior Courtney Lamar, president of the Student Diversity Club, said the Saint Mary’s community hopes to demonstrate unity by wearing purple.“We work to support all identities on campus,” Lamar said. “Spirit Day is particularly important because we want to uplift those who have been bullied and put down for being who they are.”Senior Angela Bukur, Student Diversity Club vice president, said wearing purple requires little effort but sends a powerful message.“This will help to show support and spread awareness on campus,” she said. “Since this issue isn’t talked about often, this is a start towards taking a stand against LGBTQ youth bullying. I believe that we must start small in order to eventually have it turn into a movement.”Spirit Day is especially important because LGBTQ youth are bullied at much higher rates than other students, Bukur said.“74.1 percent of LGBTQ students are verbally harassed because of their sexual identity, and 55.2 percent are verbally harassed because of their gender identity,” she said. “I want the Saint Mary’s campus to come together to show them that they’re not alone.”Lamar said she and Bukur collaborated to ensure that Spirit Day fosters a comfortable environment on campus, both for students of the College and for others affected by bullying.“Students can benefit from this cause by creating a safe space for their peers,” Lamar said. “Supporting Spirit Day will help LBGTQ youth by showing them that they have a support system here at Saint Mary’s, and it shows that we care about the problems they face daily.”Bukur said another goal of Spirit Day is to heighten students’ awareness of the hardships confronting those who identify as LGBTQ.“I believe this is an important issue because it’s not talked about often,” Bukur said. “Although same-sex marriage was legalized this summer, there are still many other issues facing the LGBTQ community.”Bukur said she and Lamar worked alongside president of Sociology Club, senior Cara Firestein, to promote Spirit Day as a campus-wide event.“One of our hopes is that people will be prompted to learn more about the bullying that LGBTQ youth are often subject to, so that they can help to prevent it in the future,” Firestein said. “Bullying happens far too often, especially among LGBTQ youth. Until people begin standing up against this mistreatment, progress will not be made.”Firestein said she hopes students recognize today’s significance as they strive to end intolerance against the LGBTQ community.“It is incredibly disheartening to know that LGBTQ youth are bullied at such high rates for simply being true to themselves,” Firestein said. “I think that having events like Spirit Day on campus helps to promote further awareness, compassion, acceptance and diversity among our student body.”Bukur said she hopes today reinforces the importance of acceptance.“The goal of celebrating Spirit Day is to educate students on the issues facing the LGBTQ community,” Bukur said. “I would really like for people to begin to take a stand to change the way LGBTQ youth are treated.”To pledge to wear purple in support of bullied LGBTQ youth, visit glaad.org/spiritday.Tags: LGBTQ, purple, spirit day, Student Diversitylast_img read more
