Saint Mary’s adapts visitor guidelines after 2-week restrictions

first_imgInterim vice president of student affairs Gloria Roldán Jenkins informed students that the College would be returning to visitor guidelines established at the beginning of the semester, in an email sent to students Thursday.Jenkins said that tri-campus students will now be allowed to come to Saint Mary’s when given permission by their home institution. She also reminded Belles to continue following health and safety guidelines across campuses.“Tri-campus students are not considered visitors and can come to Saint Mary’s campus,” Jenkins said. “However, all social visitors from Notre Dame or Holy Cross, when allowed by their respective institutions, must follow Saint Mary’s safety guidelines, including wearing an appropriate face covering, physical distancing and hand washing. Saint Mary’s students visiting Notre Dame must adhere to their guidelines and standards. Holy Cross remains closed to outside visitors.”Currently, off-campus visitors are still cautioned not to come to the College unless they have necessary business to complete.“Saint Mary’s College continues to discourage off-campus visitors,” Jenkins said. “Only those with essential business with the College are allowed at this time.”Jenkins also told students that no visitors are allowed in private dorm spaces. On-campus Saint Mary’s students can still visit each other’s rooms while following proper safety guidelines.“No guests, including family members, students from Notre Dame and Holy Cross, or Saint Mary’s students who are living off-campus, are allowed in private residence hall spaces,” Jenkins said. “Each residence hall has a designated lobby where guests may wait, but they must wear a mask at all times. Saint Mary’s students living on campus are allowed to visit one another in their residence halls, but must wear a mask at all times.”The College is still limiting informal social gatherings to 15 people and is requiring clubs to receive approval to plan events.“To minimize students’ exposure to COVID-19, informal social gatherings will continue to be limited to 15 people,” Jenkins said. “Students and other community members may request to organize internal events, as long as they follow participant, physical distancing and masking guidelines.”Belles can also participate in activities approved across the tri-campus, a policy which is subject to change with the changing health status of the College and the surrounding community.Students are also asked to follow safety guidelines while traveling for the weekend.“While students are not absolutely barred from such travel, we do ask that students who choose to leave campus for the weekend adhere to the safety guidelines established by the College while away,” Jenkins said. “For the same reason, we continue to ask that students refrain from attending off-campus parties.”Tags: COVID-19, fall 2020, Gloria Roldán Jenkins, Saint Mary’s Collegelast_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

Nathan Rothschild: GTG – Take your shot on Super Bowl LIII engagement

first_img DraftKings CBO – Industry ‘only just scratched the surface’ of US sports betting July 16, 2020 StumbleUpon Share Submit Sky Sports grows American football offering with NFL channel August 14, 2020 Kambi and DraftKings agree on final closure terms July 24, 2020 Share Related Articles Nathan Rothschild, Genius Tech GroupA year on from PASPA’s federal repeal, liberalising the US sports betting market. Nathan Rothschild, co-founder & partner at Genius Tech Group details that Super Bowl LIII presents the industry’s first test at proving its audience engagement credentials…_______________The usual level of excitement generated at this time of year by the Super Bowl has been compounded within the gambling industry globally by the expansion of sports betting in New Jersey and elsewhere since last year’s game took place in Minneapolis.For obvious reasons interest in US sports has gone global. It might well be that the lead up to Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta has reached corners of the globe previously impervious to the delights of NFL.Back in the US, though, what remains the same as ever is the enthusiasm of the fans for getting involved in the game through more than just sitting – and occasionally leaping up in excitement – watching the game on TV.This is where Football Squares enters the field of play. If you are anything other than an American reading this, you will likely be somewhat nonplussed by what I mean here.Football Squares – most often played for American Football’s big game – is where a number of contestants pick squares from a randomly numbered grid numbered from 0-9 whereby the numbers relate to the last digit of the score for each team at the end of each quarter. The money collected for each square is then distributed to the winner of each period.Now, for all the chatter that we see about gamification and the application of technology to sports betting in the modern online gambling environment, it should be noted that Football Squares doesn’t need much more than a pencil, a ruler and some players.In return, it brings with it that all-important element of fan engagement – a very simple concept that can be understood in seconds and brings fans together for a shared experience.This is why ahead of the game between the Rams and the Patriots this coming weekend we have translated that into a version of Football Squares for DraftKings.Testing F2PIt isn’t just the regulatory backdrop in the US that makes free-to-play offerings attractive in the US. As many have pointed out, the whole fantasy sports ecosystem in the US both pre-dates expanded sports betting and will continue to thrive even once sports betting is established in more and more States in the years to come.Free-to-play games have a similar dynamic. Yes, they can be free from any regulatory snags; but more importantly, they provide fun for the fans, an enjoyment over and above just passively watching the game.Indeed, I would argue that US sports are ultimately much more engaged with the consumer, whether that is through a deeper understanding of the statistics or simply through the shared social experience around watching the game.And in a wider sense, the US could be the big testing ground for free-to-play. While state-by-state regulation will bring obvious sports-betting opportunities, on a national level it will remain the case that free-to-play and fantasy will remain a great way to get punters through the door without encountering any regulatory hurdles.F2P is a cheap but effective way to drive sign-ups and garner click-throughs. Squares, for instance, has an obvious read-across to actual betting on the game and once players are engaged with the game via the DraftKings site, it offers them a window into what else the operator has to offer.More broadly, and looking beyond this game and the US, we are also engaged in bringing more free-to-play games to sports-betting operators.The free-to-play ideas emanating from our Genius Games division are just scratching the surface of the interest that exists out there for innovative and engaging content that comes naturally for whichever sport in whichever jurisdiction…so lets kick-off!____________Nathan Rothschild, co-founder & partner at Genius Tech Grouplast_img read more

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians left a

first_imgArizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians, left, and general manager Steve Keim discuss the upcoming NFL football draft, Tuesday, April 19, 2016, in Tempe, Ariz. (AP Photo/Matt York) 0 Comments   Share   It also means a long wait on draft night.The Cardinals must sit and watch 28 other teams turn their pick in and then listen to Commissioner Roger Goodell announce the selection.“When you’re picking so late it’s so hard to forecast what happens the 28 picks prior,” Keim said. “The thing I will tell you is we will be prepared.”That includes, according to Keim, possibly moving up or back, the latter of which may leave the Cardinals without a first-round pick on April 28.Currently, the Cardinals have six picks in the 2016 NFL Draft with one each in the first, third, fourth and sixth rounds and two in the fifth round, including No. 170 that the team received as a compensatory selection.Remember, the Cardinals do not have a second-round or seventh-round pick. Those were traded to New England and Philadelphia for linebacker Chandler Jones and quarterback Matt Barkley, respectively.The lack of a second-round selection (61st overall) is just fine by Arians.“Just write Chandler Jones’ name on a tag. You’ll be happy as hell,” he said, laughing.Keim has been known to covet picks — he’s been involved in at least one draft-day trade each of the three years since he’s been GM — but this year he may go against the norm. TEMPE, Ariz. — It’s the one downside to a successful NFL season: a late first-round draft pick.Not that the Arizona Cardinals are complaining or would prefer the alternative; quite the opposite, really.Both general manager Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians like the view from where they stand, drafting in the lower-third of the opening round for the second straight year.It means they’re coming off a good season, and at 13-3, the Cardinals enjoyed their best regular season in franchise history. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “In four years together, we feel like we’ve gotten significantly better as a roster,” Keim said, referring to Arians, “so acquiring more picks gives you the obvious, which is to hit on more players, yet at the same time because of our roster and the depth that we currently have, it’s harder to make our football team.”In other words, Keim may be less inclined to part with either their first- or third-round (92nd overall) selection in favor of being busier on the draft’s third day, even though the Cardinals have had great success recently in the later rounds, i.e. Andre Ellington and Justin Bethel, who were each sixth-round picks.While meeting with the media on Tuesday, Keim said they had completed their top-120 board, which ranks draft-eligible players taking into account their talent, medical history and character, both on and off the field.Keim said they expect to draft an impact player at No. 29 again, should they keep the pick.As far as which direction they may go, Keim provided no hints, though he liked the defensive line depth and Arians pointed to a handful of quarterbacks with great potential.Of course, no names were spoken.The Cardinals also have needs — center and cornerback are considered the most pressing — and should be addressed accordingly in the draft. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “When you have a roster to the point that where we feel pretty good about it, like we that could play tomorrow,” Keim said, “it makes it a lot easier to be honest with the system where you don’t feel like you have to reach for a need.”Added Arians, “Take the talented player. You will miss on the needs. The needs will get you broke and fired.”It’s been seven years since the Cardinals drafted this late in the first round, and this year marks the fifth time in the last eight years that the Cardinals’ first-round pick is 20th or later.“Quite frankly, there’s talent throughout the whole draft,” Keim said. “It’s just making sure we get it right.”last_img read more
