Saint Mary’s students celebrate Senior Week

Posted on by

first_imgIn the week leading up to Commencement, seniors had the opportunity to participate in different activities to celebrate the traditions and sisterhood fostered at Saint Mary’s.The week is a time for students to have one more chance to spend time together as a class, senior class president CoCo Craig said.“It’s time for memories,” Craig said.According to Craig, the week began with a senior formal Sunday, followed by the Alumnae-Senior Champagne Brunch, yoga and scavenger hunt Monday.Senior class vice president Lindsay Rzepecki said the Class of 2016 participation in the Class Gift Campaign — in which each class tries to achieve 100 percent participation in raising money for Saint Mary’s — will be revealed, and the class’s gift will be presented to College President Carol Ann Mooney on Monday.Domerfest 2.0 and Babetostal were held on Tuesday, and the class took a trip Wednesday to Chicago for a Cubs baseball game at Wrigley Field.The main events of the week took place Thursday, Craig said, when students painted handprints in the underground tunnel that connects Le Mans Hall and the Saint Mary’s Student Center and participated in the Saint Mary’s tradition of Opening of the Circle. Additionally, they received their letters from the Letter Writing Project, had a party on the island in Lake Marian and had their final walk down the Avenue.“The Opening of the Circle is a tradition where the president of the class reads a script that basically prepares to send us off, but reminds us we are always welcome to come home,” Craig said. “The Letter Writing Project is a genius idea the Class of 2015 started. Friends, faculty and family write letters to students about the positive impact they have contributed.”The Opening of the Circle will be a time of reflection for the graduates, Rzepecki said.“Opening of the Circle will surely be a sentimental moment for all of us graduating seniors, as we participated in a very similar ceremony [Closing of the Circle] on our first day at Saint Mary’s,” she said. “We will reflect in prayer and join hands with our classmates.”Rzepecki said the week aimed to make memories for students to “carry with us as we move past the comfort of Saint Mary’s.”“Each memory, person, hardship and celebration has made our own personal Saint Mary’s story,” she said. “These unique and precious gifts are something we will not be able to relive, but they will live on. This is the opportunity to celebrate those memories with just us, and only us — the Class of 2016. It’s a time of celebration, and we certainly deserve it.”Senior Isabella Gagnon said in an email she was excited to spend her final days at Saint Mary’s with her classmates.“Senior Week has really allowed me to hang out with girls that I may not usually hang out with, that aren’t in the same major or clubs that I am,” Gagnon said. “It’s also an extra week that we get to pretend we aren’t about to be real adults. We can just … bond with our fellow Belles all week without the stress of finals.”Gagnon said she is looking forward to the Senior Letter Writing Project, as well as other events during the week.“I am excited for taking our final walk down the Avenue,” she said. “I’m pretty sure this is the part where I will start crying uncontrollably. … I want to get as much out of my Saint Mary’s experience as possible. I think it’s important to go to yoga classes and handprint paining to really do that. I’m not doing every Senior Week event, but I will make the best out of the ones I do go to.”Tags: Commencement 2016, saint mary’s, Senior Weeklast_img read more

Anies issues decree on increasing Jakarta’s COVID-19 alertness level

Posted on by

first_imgIn addition, Anies said the city administration would form a special COVID-19 command center for preventing, monitoring and addressing a potential outbreak. However, he said Jakarta residents should not be unduly alarmed. “Go about your day as usual and don’t spread news that has not been confirmed as true,” he said on Sunday as quoted by Antara news agency.The decree comes amid the viral circulation of a photograph that reportedly shows a Jakarta Health Agency report on a possible outbreak in the city. Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has issued a gubernatorial decree on increasing the capital’s alertness in response to the global outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).In the decree, issued on Tuesday, Anies urged all city officials – including mayors, agency heads and district and subdistrict heads – to step up efforts to educate the public about the deadly virus.“We are supporting and organizing events to educate the public about how to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 infection in Jakarta,” Anies said in the decree. The post, which has since been mostly removed from social media, shows a presentation slide depicting a pie chart with the caption “COVID-19 cases based on case criteria,” with 32 cases marked as being under “supervision” and 115 cases as being “monitored.”The agency issued a statement to clarify the image on Friday, stating that the term “COVID-19 cases” on the slide only meant patients who had exhibited symptoms of the disease and had recently traveled to affected countries.center_img “The Jakarta Health Agency hereby states that all lab test results have shown that there are no COVID-19 patients in Jakarta,” the agency’s disease control and prevention division head, Dwi Oktavia, said in the statement. She acknowledged, however, that 115 people were being “monitored’ and that 32 people were “under supervision”, but did not detail whether these people had been tested for the disease or not. Dwi Oktavia did not immediately respond to The Jakarta Post’s requests for comment.

Ross Stripling strong over seven innings as Dodgers beat up on Giants for a second time

Posted on by

first_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “I mean, it’s just the depth, right?” Stripling said. “You can read about it. In the Andrew Friedman era, we’ve always just had a ton of depth, and this year is no exception to that. I mean we’ve got guys behind Dustin May that are elite in their own rights — guys like Josiah Gray and Tony Gonsolin — that are probably going to help us win games this year. It’s just a testament to our front office, the guys that draft for us and then our coaching staff for developing guys. It’s just kind of like the next man up.“Obviously our lineup is what it is. It’s phenomenal, and it’s going to be a grind for anyone that has to come in and try and pitch to it. But then our ability to have guys that are built up and make starts and then bring guys out of the bullpen that maybe some people have never heard of that are nasty and really good. … It’s just our depth, man. It feels like every year we show it off.”The Dodgers’ bullpen has found the Giants’ lineup — devoid of Buster Posey, Evan Longoria, Brandon Belt or even Madison Bumgarner — just as pliable. Dodgers relievers have allowed just one hit over 6 2/3 scoreless innings so far this season.“I certainly think we should be impressed. But I don’t think surprised,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of the starts from May and Stripling. “You talk about depth with our club — we talk about it a lot — and starting pitching certainly is a part of that. Dustin and Strip, you know you get opportunities when certain things happen so to see these guys rise to the occasion, not surprised at all, and opportunities that they deserve.”Stripling was smooth and efficient, mixing in a new changeup developed for this season. He strolled through his seven innings on 92 pitches, walked none and struck out seven. Only one Giant reached second base safely. That was Jaylin Davis, who drove an opposite-field, solo home run into the cardboard cutouts enjoying the new “Home Run Seats” in right field.

(Photo by David Crane, Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG)ExpandAn old hand at the replacement starter gig, right-hander Ross Stripling, allowed just one run on four hits in seven innings Friday night as the Dodgers beat the San Francisco Giants 9-1.Dustin May was a last-minute replacement for Kershaw as the Opening Day starter on Thursday. Between them, May and Stripling held the Giants to two runs on 11 hits over 11 1/3 innings, struck out 11 and walked none in the first two games. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “He was very efficient,” Roberts said. “He pitched to all the quadrants. His curveball, changeup, cut fastball was all working tonight. He’s just such a good executor of pitches.”The Dodgers’ offense has been thorough if not explosive while scoring 17 runs in two easy victories over the Giants. Friday’s runs came one at a time until they once again put the Giants away with a crooked number late. Two of the runs came on single swings by Max Muncy (in the first and sixth innings). Muncy also scored on the front side of a double-double with Justin Turner in the fourth.The Giants appear to be holding an in-season talent search to assemble a pitching staff. It is not going well.The Dodgers have scored runs against eight different pitchers in the first two games, putting 43 runners on base — 26 on base hits of assorted impact, 13 on walks, one hit by pitch and three on fielding errors. Two of those walks and a throwing error by catcher Rob Brantly led to two runs in the seventh inning Friday, the second driven in by Mookie Betts’ single (his first RBI as a Dodger).“Potent. Dangerous. Explosive. Exciting,” Muncy said, pushed to replace “thorough” as a descriptor for the Dodgers’ offense. “There’s not really one word you can pick for it.“It’s just nice to get out there in real games and see what this lineup can do. … It was exciting during Summer Camp. It’s even more exciting now that the real games are going on.”Muncy made his fourth career start at leadoff in Thursday’s opener with Betts batting behind him against a right-handed pitcher (Johnny Cueto). With a left-hander starting Friday, Betts went back to his preferred spot atop the order and Muncy dropped to second. It’s a left-right arrangement Roberts indicated he will use frequently this season.“I’d better get real comfortable,” Muncy said of the setup. “Once you get past the first inning, it’s just another spot in the lineup. With the way our lineup is, guys are always going to be on base. There’s always a chance to drive people in. It’s nothing too different once you get past that first at-bat.”Related Articleslast_img read more
