Egypt: Top student shuns meeting with Pope after receiving a zero…

first_imgA Christian high school student who challenged the Education Ministry’s exam protocol resulting in a public outcry, has declined to meet with Pope Tawadros II, the church said Wednesday.  Mariam Malak accuses her school examiners of swapping her answer sheet with another student’s. This incident resulted in her receiving a “zero” in all subjects.  Now she has refused to meet with Egypt’s pope, church spokesperson Father Paules Halim said.  A church source said she probably feared her meeting with the pope would be seen as adding a sectarian dimension to her dilemma. Malak had said that the answer sheet, though it bore a ticket with her name on it, contained a handwriting that was not her own. The Education Ministry rebuffed her claims, however, saying that experts at Egypt’s Forensic Medicine Authority confirmed the handwriting was hers. The ministry said Malak would have to repeat her academic year.Malak’s case has gained much support and sympathy from activists and social network users. In her first and second years of high school, Malak garnered overall scores of 96 and 98 percent, respectively. Her exceptional grades in previous years has led the public to believe her, despite the ministry’s repeated denials.High school exams have typically represented a headache for Egyptian families eager to see their children go to reputable universities, with many relying on expensive private tutoring to ensure high grades. Exams over the past few years have been marred with many incidents of cheating, as well as the leaking of exam questions.Prime Minister Ibrahim Mehleb met with Malak on Tuesday. He said that while he has full confidence in the outcome of the prosecution services’ investigations in her case, he would “stand by her until she gets her rights”.Malak’s lawyer Ehab Ramzy, who attended the meeting with Mehleb, said the Prime Minister promised to ask the Justice Ministry to form an independent investigation panel of experts to review her answer sheet once more.last_img read more

UW goes out in style on senior night

first_imgAs they entered their game Friday night against Northwestern (8-9-2, 4-5-1), the Wisconsin women’s soccer team (7-8-3, 4-5-1) had a lot of questions to be answered. Would they win and qualify for the Big Ten tournament? Would they be able to break out of their goal-scoring funk? Would their defense be able to rebound after giving up nine goals in the last four matches? Would the team’s five seniors be able to go out on a positive note in their last home match? The answer to all of those questions was a resounding yes.On a chilly Friday night at the McClimon Soccer Complex, the Badgers broke out of their slump to crush the Wildcats 5-0 and guarantee themselves a spot in the upcoming Big Ten tournament.”Our team was on a mission tonight,” Wisconsin head coach Dean Duerst said. “To make a statement and go ahead of [Northwestern] in the league standings was big too.”Wisconsin came into the match-up having not scored in their last four matches, but behind a two goal and one assist effort from senior forward Allison Preiss and a goal and two assists from sophomore forward Taylor Walsh, the Badgers struck early and often. The Badgers got on the board in the 12th minute as Walsh and Preiss combined for their first of two goals on the day. Walsh, playing along the far sideline, crossed it into Preiss at the top of the penalty box. Preiss, who received the ball in stride, blasted a shot to the near post for her third tally of the season.”Our team came out and played like they were capable of playing all year long,” Duerst said. “Anytime you get an early goal, it gives momentum and that makes a difference.”Wisconsin struck again in the 21st minute. Walsh dished out an assist, but this time the goal belonged to sophomore midfielder Elise Weber. Weber snuck in behind the Wildcat defense and found herself all alone against Northwestern goalkeeper Lauren Johnston. Weber gained possession of Walsh’s pass and lofted it up and over Johnston for her third goal of the season. The Badgers scored once more before the half ended and this time Preiss set up Walsh for the goal. After taking the pass from Preiss, Walsh faked to her right then went left and shot the ball to the far back post for her sixth goal of the season. Wisconsin’s fourth goal didn’t come until the 80th minute, but it was a memorable one. Playing in her last match at home, senior forward Lindsey Walker took a shot that was deflected. She gathered the rebound and sent a slow roller that got passed Johnston for her first career goal.”You know it’s a great night when Lindsey finally gets her goal,” Duerst said. “She’s been so close so many times.”The Badgers added one more goal just about four minutes later as Preiss scored her second goal of the match. The five goals by the Badgers matched their season-high set earlier in the year as they beat Minnesota 5-1 Oct.1. Northwestern came into the match with the third-most goals among Big Ten teams but was unable to muster much offense as senior goalkeeper Stefani Szczechowski recorded her second shutout of the season. “We just really had a mentality today for the shutout,” Wisconsin senior defender Natalie Horner said. “That’s what we were thinking from the beginning … what we wanted today was a shutout.”The win made sure the team’s five seniors would not leave their home field for the last time in defeat. All the seniors played a role in the win, especially Preiss with two goals, Walker with her first career goal and Szczechowski who got the shutout. Duerst said this type of a win makes the year for the seniors.”In a pressure situation, they came through,” he said. “You think of all the time and effort and commitment they’ve given and they got rewarded for that here.””The most important thing is how well they performed,” Duerst added. “It’s great to see your seniors perform at a top level.”With the win, the Badgers earned the No. 7 seed in the Big Ten tournament, which starts Thursday at Penn State University. Wisconsin will face off against No. 2 seed Illinois, who beat the Badgers 4-2 Sept. 22 at the McClimon Complex.The win over the Wildcats gives the team confidence as they head into the postseason, but they know exactly where they’ve come from. “It puts a lot of confidence in everyone on the team,” Horner said. “But at the same time we all know what the last two weeks have held for us, and so we need to keep that in mind and not forget that that can happen again and that we’re not unstoppable by any means.”We just really need to focus this next week in practice and get ready to go and play that way next weekend.”last_img read more

One School, One Book launched to bring students and faculty together

first_imgThe Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism is launching One School, One Book, an initiative that aims to bring students, faculty and staff together as a community and will hold its first event on Thursday.Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide was selected, and a discussion will be held Thursday by Henry Jenkins, the book’s author, and four of his graduate students.The program looks to unify students and faculty by enabling them to read, interpret and discuss the contents of one book that highlights issues relevant to the school.“It’s supposed to provide an opportunity for all Annenberg students to have a common experience of reading the same book,” Annenberg Associate Dean Abby Kaun said. “We select the book on [topics] we think are important and of interest to our students and to our faculty.”A forum will be held for each book to allow students to engage with one another.Annenberg intends to continue the program over the summer for entering and returning students.“We’ll announce it to incoming students, so before they even get to the Annenberg school, they can be reading the book too,” Kaun said. “We’d love to have some sort of online discussion of the book even before students get here, and then what we hope to do is not just have one big event around the book, but to possibly have other programming connected to whatever the book is.”Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide looks at how business, politics, education and religion are shaped by the ways people engage with popular culture.“The book is structured around a series of case studies of media properties of Survivor, of American Idol, of The Matrix, of Harry Potter and of the presidential elections before 2008,” said author Henry Jenkins, a professor of communication, journalism and cinematic arts. “We’re trying to look at the relationship [between] old media and the new relationship consumers are forming to digital media, networking and communications.”The book also aims to differentiate between old and new media and what the connection between both means.“When we talk about new media and participatory culture, we’re talking about communications that more people can produce and share with each other,” Jenkins said. “Lots of new ideas diversify the culture, and those ideas often then get amplified and they get taken up by broadcast media, and that in the way is the intersection; it’s how our ideas fly from one to the other.”last_img read more

Yorkshire forms County Golf Partnership

first_img Yorkshire golf is set to benefit from an exciting new partnership that will help drive the efforts to grow the sport across the county. The move will give the county’s 200-plus clubs and golf facilities a powerful ally in the continuing campaign to encourage the next generation of players to take to the fairways and on into club membership opportunities. The formation of the Yorkshire County Golf Partnership will bring together the expertise and skills of the Yorkshire Union of Golf Clubs, the Yorkshire Ladies’ County Golf Association and the Yorkshire PGA. The county has traditionally been one of the strongest in English golf and has a long history of producing top-class golfers and developing future players. The partnership will support clubs in opening up new ways of bringing people into the sport, helping would-be players develop the skills to enjoy their time on the course, and showing the benefits of becoming a club member. Yorkshire joins the England Golf Partnership’s national network of county golf partnerships, which are able to share best practice and funding through its national partners, Sport England and the National Lottery, and are making it easier than ever to give golf a go. The aims of the Yorkshire CGP will be to promote the game in the region, introduce more people to golf regardless of age, gender and background and to increase the number of members at affiliated clubs. Clubs across Yorkshire will benefit from the additional support as they seek to retain and recruit members as well as increasing regular participation. Through the network of county partnerships, the England Golf Partnership’s target, as outlined in its Whole Sport Plan, is to increase and widen participation in golf, from grass roots to elite level, and achieve the vision of making England the leading golf nation in the world by 2020. Richard Flint, England Golf’s Participation & Club Support Director, said: “We are delighted that Yorkshire, with its proud record as a successful golfing county, has taken the step of forming a county golf partnership which will bring together extensive experience and knowledge that will allow the game to grow further to the benefit of all the clubs and those taking up a sport that offers so many health and social benefits.” John Shaw, President of the Yorkshire Union of Golf Clubs, said: “The Yorkshire Union has joined forces with the Yorkshire Ladies’ County Golf Association and the PGA to form a County Golf Partnership. The funding which we receive will support our golf clubs in their endeavour to encourage participation in the game of golf, which will hopefully lead to an increase in golf club membership.” Dawn Clegg, Hon Secretary of the Yorkshire Ladies County Golf Association, said: “The YLCGA feel that we will be will be in a strong position to take advantage of a whole range of projects and benefits. The CGP will have a key role working with clubs in Yorkshire and we should be able to encourage more people to get into golf thanks to our funding.” Andy Herridge, Yorkshire PGA Captain for 2014, said: “On behalf of the PGA of Yorkshire, I am delighted that we have started a county golf partnership programme. Hopefully this will enable us to encourage and maintain the growth of golf within our region. I am looking forward to getting the ball rolling!” One of the first tasks for the new body will be to appoint a county development officer who will put their ideas and objectives into practice. The county golf partnerships seek to support Get into golf, a national campaign to inspire adults to take up the game and is run by the England Golf Partnership through its network of county golf partnerships, supported by Sport England and National Lottery funding. Get into golf opportunities include great value beginner courses with PGA professionals. They are a fun and sociable way to start golf – and a great way to make new friends. The Yorkshire County Golf Partnership will be looking to engage with golf facilities to create opportunities in Yorkshire once a development officer is appointed.
