When the program began 21 years ago, local eighth grade students were invited to participate in relationship building with their mentors.Harris said that the program helps to inspire self-confidence, leadership skills and relationship growth.“I think it’s a real win-win,” Assistant Director of the Leadership Center Tyler Fisher said. “We’re giving back to the community, helping eighth graders during this transition time, and also benefitting our students in many aspects.”Students directors said they enjoyed their experiences interacting with the eighth graders.“As I got into it and got into the mentoring role, I realized how much these students latch onto this type of human connection,” said Maddie Blagg, executive director of external affairs for LeaderKids. “It was very unique to me because it showed that any sort of interaction that they could get, particularly from a mentoring standpoint, having a mentor in their lives, was so remarkable and watching them grow in it.”The eighth graders said they felt as though LeaderKids would help them to becomes better leaders. Other eighth graders said they were excited to see the TCU campus.“Oh it was fun. We got to take pictures by the fountains, like the Frog Fountain,” said Bridget Wright, eighth grader at Benbrook Middle-High School.Two students from each of the 23 middle schools in Fort Worth ISD were asked to participate in the program.LeaderKids is sponsored by Leadership Fort Worth, which is a program that aims “to empower and connect diverse leaders who serve as catalysts for a vibrant community,” according to its website.The students meet once a month, from 2 to 6 p.m. on a Tuesday.This story was originally posted on tcu360.com Students find outlets for stress relief before finals Facebook Previous articleMuseum event welcomes community, expands cultural awarenessNext articleStanford professor speaks as Green Honors Chair Amanda Aguilar RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Amanda Aguilarhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/amanda-aguilar/ ReddIt + posts Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Presidential candidates aren’t favorable among voters Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday
MANILA – The Philippine governmentis considering developing some facilities in Visayas and Mindanao as potentialquarantine sites for the next batches of Filipino repatriates from countrieshit by the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles saidthe plan was pitched, as the government readies itself for the possible“worst-case scenario,” considering that cases of COVID-19 continue to soarworldwide.“So we’ve identified several potential sites forquarantine sa Visayas and Mindanao. Again, these are all just inpreparation for the worst-case scenario. It’s better prepared and that we’reprepared for any eventuality,” he said in an interview with CNN Philippines.All Filipinos who returned home from COVID-19 hit countries have beenquarantined at the New Clark City’s Athlete Village in Capas, Tarlac.Over 400 Filipinos aboard M/V Diamond Princess cruise ship in Yokohama, Japanare currently undergoing the prescribed 14-day quarantine period. Three of themwere admitted to a public hospital in Pampanga after exhibiting symptoms ofCovid-19.Nose and throat swabs from the three, who have coughs and colds, have alreadybeen sent to the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) for testing.Nograles said the government also sought to tap the rehabilitation center inFort Magsaysay in Nueva Ecija as a quarantine site for overseas Filipinos whowish to come home amid the Covid-19 outbreak.“We’re also looking at Fort Magsaysay because that was the initial quarantinefacility that we’re looking at before going to Athletes Village. So, if in casewe need to repatriate more of our countrymen from other countries includingMacau, Fort Magsaysay is something that we’re looking,” he said.At present, more than 3,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19 have been reportedoutside China.The Philippines has confirmed three cases of Covid-19, involving three Chinesenationals from the central city of Wuhan, China where the virus originates.There is no existing case of new coronavirus in the Philippines, since one ofthe three Covid-19 patients died, while the remaining two already recoveredfrom the disease.

Van Gaal said: “Newcastle was attacking. They wanted to attack, and that is the difference. I am saying that all the time, but you are doubting my words and my vision. “When you see two teams who want to attack, then you see a game like this. But when you see a match that only one team wants to defend and wastes time and frustrates the opponent…” United led 2-0 and 3-2 on Tyneside as Wayne Rooney claimed his 10th and 11th goals of the season either side of Jesse Lingard’s 37th-minute strike. Georginio Wijnaldum had kept the home side in it at 2-1 and Aleksandar Mitrovic levelled from the penalty spot with 67 minutes gone before Rooney and Newcastle full-back Paul Dummett both scored inside a riotous final 11 minutes. Van Gaal said: “We have scored three goals and have one point. I have said in all my press conferences that you have to score one more goal than your opponent, and we didn’t do that.” Opposite number Steve McClaren was understandably delighted with a concerted fightback which ended his side’s run of four successive 1-0 defeats on a night when the club paraded January signings Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saivet in front of the fans. Shelvey had completed his £12million switch from Swansea just a couple of hours before kick-off, and his new boss was delighted to have landed him. McClaren said: “I couldn’t believe it when he was up and we’ve actually got him. I didn’t think they would sell, but we are delighted they have done and we have got him. “He’s a young player who with the Euros coming, he wants to be in that England squad, so he has got a lot to fight for from now until the end of the season. That’s got to be of benefit for us.” The Dutchman saw his side score three times and still not win as Newcastle fought back to snatch a 3-3 Barclays Premier League draw at St James’ Park on a night when the United boss could hardly claim to have been bored. However, he insisted his team was able to attack more freely than in recent weeks because the Magpies did the same. Press Association Louis van Gaal has blamed blanket defences for Manchester United’s uninspiring football.
The Syracuse men’s soccer team finished with a record of 1-1 in this weekend’s Mayor’s Cup tournament at Hartwick College in Oneonta, N.Y.The Orange recorded its first win of the season — and first under new head coach Ian McIntyre — in a 1-0 overtime triumph against Northeastern on Friday. SU got the win despite being outshot 17-3. Junior midfielder Nick Roydhouse netted the game-winner on a 22-yard free kick in the sixth minute of extra time.Syracuse took advantage of one of its few opportunities throughout the match. The team managed just one shot in each period of play.Helping preserve the shutout were goalkeepers Ryan Jones and Jeremy Vuolo. Jones, last year’s No. 1 goalkeeper for the Orange, got his first start under McIntyre. Together, the goalie duo made five saves in SU’s second shutout of the season.On Sunday, the Orange fell 2-0 to Columbia, the eventual tournament champion. SU outshot the Lions in the second half and held them to zero corner kicks, but couldn’t find the back of the net. The team’s 10 shots on goal were its most since the season opener against Siena, but only one of its six shots in the second half was on goal.AdvertisementColumbia got on the board in the 21st minute on a goal from Henning Sauerbier. The Orange (1-3) played tough for the next 60 minutes until a late goal by the Lions sealed the defeat.Despite Sunday’s loss, the Orange finished second in the tournament by virtue of its head-to-head win over Northeastern.The Orange returns to action Saturday when it travels to Washington, D.C., to take on American.Field hockeyFor the second straight weekend, the Syracuse field hockey team came up just short of two big wins on the road. The Orange defeated No. 17 Old Dominion 3-1 on Saturday, but fell to No. 3 Virginia in a 2-1 overtime loss Sunday. Both games were played at the Powhatan Sports Complex in Norfolk, Va.The ninth-ranked Orange started the weekend strong against Old Dominion, as junior forward Heather Susek and freshman midfielder Leonie Geyer took care of all of the scoring. Geyer beat the ODU goalkeeper from 10 yards out for SU’s first tally, but the Lady Monarchs tied the game before halftime.Susek took over from there. Under a minute into the second half, she tapped in the rebound after an ODU save to give the Orange a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Nearly 10 minutes later, Susek scored in the same fashion for the game’s final goal. All of SU’s goals were unassisted, and sophomore goalkeeper Leann Stiver had three saves for the Orange. SU outshot Old Dominion 19-10 in the game.SU’s game Sunday was a battle from the start, and the first goal didn’t come until 31:45 into the game. Junior midfielder Martina Loncarica scored off of a penalty corner for the Orange’s only goal, but Virginia bounced back with a goal just before halftime. Both goalkeepers were flawless in the second half, and the teams headed into overtime deadlocked in a 1-1 tie. Just over three minutes into overtime, Virginia’s Elly Buckley beat Stiver to hand the Orange (4-2) another disappointing loss.The Cavaliers outshot the Orange 16-11 and had double the amount of penalty corners (8-4). Stiver had eight saves in the game.With her goal in the game on Saturday, Geyer now leads the Orange in points on the season with eight. Susek is tied with senior forward Lindsey Conrad for the team lead in goals with three.The two games were part of a tough six-game road trip that doesn’t end until a Sept. 25 game against Louisville.

“Definitely not,” Muncy said if he expected to be in this position. “Maybe Buehler. But I didn’t figure I’d be standing here. The whole experience has been incredible.”And wholly unpredictable.When the Dodgers reported to Camelback Ranch for the opening of spring training in February, the narrative surrounding the defending National League champions was how little they had changed during the offseason – no big free-agent signings, only one trade that wasn’t a salary dump. The two-year deal given to clubhouse leader emeritus Chase Utley was the only multi-year deal negotiated by the Dodgers’ front office last winter.Then Matt Kemp played like an All-Star. Max Muncy started hitting home runs and never really stopped. Manny Machado was acquired in the boldest trade-deadline move this season. And Buehler grew into his potential faster than the Dodgers could have hoped.“One thing I learned years ago is not to act like you know how a season is going to unfold,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said after Monday’s 5-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies. “It’s about having as many good options as you can have and then sitting back and watching how things materialize. This year is a great example of that.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is familiar with the value of unexpected contributions.“Max has been unbelievable,” he said. “Every year it takes a couple guys you didn’t really count on to have big years and Max is that guy. Last year it was Chris Taylor. To envision 35 home runs from a guy that was a non-roster invitation, I didn’t foresee it. He just wanted an opportunity and, fortunately for us, we gave it to him and he came through.” LOS ANGELES — Do you remember Opening Day of the Pacific Coast League season? Max Muncy does.“Yeah, it was about 10 degrees in Iowa,” Muncy recalled, exaggerating slightly.Also notable, Muncy hit a home run and right-hander Walker Buehler pitched for the Triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers.Nearly six months later, Buehler was pitching again and Muncy hit another home run – his team-leading 35th for the Dodgers – only now it was in the 163rd game of the big-league season. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies PITCHING PLANSMonday’s win saved the Dodgers from facing quite a dilemma. They would have had to choose between right-hander Ross Stripling, who has struggled since returning from the DL, and a bullpen game (perhaps featuring Alex Wood as an ‘opener’) to start a do-or-die wild-card game on Tuesday.“The pitching is set up,” Roberts said after Monday’s win. “That’s all we talked about. It wasn’t an elimination game (against the Rockies), but for us to kind of prepare for the Division Series we felt it was a must-win.”The Dodgers will now be able to send Clayton Kershaw to the mound for Game 1 on regular rest Thursday with Hyun-Jin Ryu lined up for Game 2 on extra rest. In nine starts at Dodger Stadium this year, Ryu has a 1.15 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP, holding batters to a .212 average. He hasn’t allowed a run at Dodger Stadium in his past 14 innings.“That’s probably the way it looks, yeah,” Roberts said of the rotation.Buehler would line up to pitch Game 3 in Atlanta on Sunday on five days’ rest with veteran left-hander Rich Hill in Game 4.FAN FAVORITESThanks to the 82nd home date on Monday, the Dodgers were able to set a new franchise record for attendance this season. The one-game playoff with the Rockies drew 47,816, pushing the season total to 3,857,500 – a few hundred more than the previous record set in 2007 and the sixth-largest season total in National League history.“It has been remarkable since the day we got here,” Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten said. “They have been supportive for 60 years. To think this year was the greatest attendance they’ve ever had is really extraordinary. And that really enables us to do everything that we do.”Tickets did not go on sale until about 22 hours before Monday’s first pitch and there were large swaths of empty seats when the game started as fans fought through traffic to get to the stadium for the afternoon start.“You drive in L.A., it’s going to take you a while – but it’s worth it when you get here,” Kasten said. “That’s what I’ve learned about living in L.A. – it takes a long time to get there but when you do, it’s really worth it.”UP NEXTBraves (RHP Mike Foltynewicz, 13-10, 2.85 ERA) at Dodgers (LHP Clayton Kershaw, 9-5, 2.73 ERA), Thursday, TBD, Fox Sports 1Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season
