Illini faithful lack creative flair

Illini faithful lack creative flair

first_imgThere’s just something special about going home: seeing the family, going grocery shopping, doing laundry, sleeping in your own room.But there’s a different home Badger fans are looking forward to returning to next weekend: sections J through P. After a pretty shaky effort last week in Champaign against the Illinois “I-L-L-I-N-I!” coming back to Camp Randall Stadium can’t come soon enough for the one-time fifth-best team in the nation. And while members of Bret Bielema’s squad surely need to come back to their sea of red, it’s those of us who went to watch them play the Illini who can’t wait to jump around once again. Seven friends and I were among the delegation of Badger faithful to drive the most boring stretch of highway down Interstate 39 through the Land of Lincoln consisting of fields of nothing. We blasted “On Wisconsin” upon entering Champaign in hopes of intimidating the enemies as much as possible.The next morning, we got up and made our way to a Memorial Stadium under renovation. With sleepy, quiet Illinois fans surrounding us, we naturally high-fived every Badger fan we saw, sharing pride in our team.But there was just something about these Illini fans that was a real downer. With high expectations over the rowdiness of Camp Randall, I expected to hear some of the best Illinois had to offer.And it wasn’t much. The big sea of bright orange started off on Wisconsin’s first third down of the game by clapping in syncopation with their hands over their heads. This continued on every Badger third down of the game.Mildly amusing.Then, during the 4th quarter, the student section jumped to the left and right — not around — to the tune of Rocky and Bullwinkle’s Dudley Do-Right. They might have done it a second time, but I was too busy watching Tyler Donovan throw his second interception that I wasn’t paying attention.Finally, throughout the game, the student section would yell “I-L-L” and the rest of the crowd would respond “I-N-I.”“Hey, you can spell!” my friends and I yelled.And that was it. Unless I missed something — which is entirely possible — there were three cheers the entire game. Thank God I go to Wisconsin. The trip to Illinois made me and my friends appreciate what being a Wisconsin Badger is all about. I know this might warrant a big Full House “awww” after saying it, but it’s the truth. While profanity has caused UW a bit of trouble in the past and some unruly fans can be an embarrassment, the passion of Wisconsin’s student section is something to be proud of. Between jumping around, singing “Build Me Up Buttercup,” rowing, doing the wave and counting Bucky’s push-ups for every point we score, the Badger enthusiasm is clear.“Hey, you can count!” an I-L-L-I-N-I fan yelled after we finished counting in Champaign. “Between our reading and your counting, we’ve got everything covered.”And that was as much wit as Champaign had to offer. The joy of being in Wisconsin’s student section is enough proof of Wisconsin’s pride, but Badger fans have also historically traveled with their team in the masses. Between dedicated students and passionate alumni, thousands of people traveled to Pasadena for the Rose Bowls in 1994, 1999 and 2000, to Orlando for the Capital One Bowl the past two years and even this year, to Las Vegas for the UNLV game. And with today’s generation, the sea of red always means a full sea of red. The attendance at last Saturday’s game at Illinois was about 58,000, which was the “second sellout in a row,” the announcer proclaimed. I can’t remember the last time Camp Randall wasn’t sold out for a football game. The passion for Badger athletics isn’t limited to football, either. The Athletic Department announced that Wisconsin’s hockey attendance last year was the most in the NCAA and even beat out several NHL teams. At the end of the day, fans of Wisconsin athletics have been, are and always will be passionate about their teams.So next Saturday, I’ll throw on my Bucky T-shirt, go into the stadium, listen to Gary Cannalte’s game day forecast, watch “Ask the Badgers” and witness the Badgers get another win on the season.The best part, though: Next week I get to walk down Regent Street to get to the game instead of driving through fields of nothing.Tom is a junior majoring in journalism.

Elections 2014: expats all set to vote

Elections 2014: expats all set to vote

first_img The IEC has confirmed that 25 390 150 voters have registered to cast their ballots in the 7 May 2014 national and provincial elections. This is an increase of 9.5% over the 2009 voters’ roll. The voters’ roll reflects a total of 80.80% of registered voters, the IEC said. Gauteng has the highest number of voters with just over 6-million followed by KwaZulu-Natal with 5.1-million, the Eastern Cape with 3.24-million and the Western Cape with 2.9-million. Between them, these four provinces make up almost 68% of all voters. The final candidate lists, released by the IEC on 25 April, show a total of 8 651 candidates who are standing for elections. Of these, 2 089 candidates are on national lists; 2 165 candidates on regional lists; and 4 397 candidates on provincial lists contesting for 400 National Assembly and 430 provincial legislature seats respectively. This gives candidates an overall statistical 1 in 10 chance of election, the IEC said. According to VoteHome, a DA Abroad initiative aimed at encouraging South Africans living overseas to vote, the top 21 overseas voting stations with the most number of registered voters are: Find your nearest SA foreign mission All the overseas voting stations, except for the one in Helsinki, Finland, will open at 7am and close at 9pm. In Finland, voting will close at lunchtime due to a spring festival celebration. In order to vote, you must have both a valid green, bar-coded South African ID book, ID smartcard or Temporary Identity Certificate and your valid South African passport Voters registered in South Africa for a special vote will cast their vote on 5 and 6 May. The rest of the country heads for the polls on 7 May. Check the status of your VEC10 via the IEC websiteSee FAQs for overseas voters on the IEC’s website The thousands of South Africans living overseas who have registered to vote in this year’s national elections will cast their votes when polls open around the world, beginning with the SA High Commission in Wellington, New Zealand, at 7am on Wednesday (or 9pm on Tuesday in local time). The last voting station to close will be the one Los Angeles in the US, which will close at 6am South African time on Thursday. This year the fifth general elections since 1994. A report in a South African newspaper on Tuesday alleged that voters living abroad would not be able to do so due to a government communication problem relating to a notification form. However, this was swiftly dismissed as incorrect by the Department of International Relations, according to a report in the Mail & Guardian. “People are going to be voting tomorrow [Wednesday],” spokesperson Clayson Monyela said. “Elections are run by an independent body, not by government,” Monyela is quoted as saying. “All the information related to the elections, whether it’s here or abroad, is communicated by the IEC.” The IEC says it has printed 31-million papers for this year’s elections, and has recruited more than 200 000 to ensure smooth elections. There are 26 000 registered voters abroad, according to a report in the Cape Times. The IEC has reportedly budgeted R2-million to courier ballot papers from 116 cities back to South Africa. According to the IEC’s website, the South Africans living overseas who did not submit their VEC10 forms, which notify the IEC of their intention to vote, by 12 March are not eligible to vote. If you submitted your VEC10 by the specified date, and it was approved, you will be able to vote at the foreign mission you selected.

Is it time for industrial hemp?

Is it time for industrial hemp?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I recently had the honor of hearing President Donald Trump address my fellow members at the 99th Annual Convention of the American Farm Bureau Federation in Nashville. Not surprisingly, he addressed major agricultural issues like tax reform, regulatory reform, rural broadband access, Waters of the U.S. and trade policy. Every farmer in this country is impacted by these issues and I hold faith that the president understands the incredible challenges we face every day on our farms and ranches.I also hold faith in the president’s entrusting Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue to lead the administration’s Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity and execute its mission to “identify legislative, regulatory, and policy changes to promote in rural America agriculture, economic development, job growth, infrastructure improvements, technological innovation, energy security and quality of life.” Now that the task force’s report is out, one item escaped the list of recommendations, and so I urge the president and Congress to support an emerging rural economic opportunity for many farmers and ranchers across America.I believe this country is ready to go forward with the legalization of industrial hemp and move beyond nearly five decades of industrial hemp’s unfortunate misalignment with its more infamous cousin, cannabis. On Sept. 1, 26 other state Farm Bureau presidents joined me in writing a letter to Secretary Purdue urging that he and the task force recommend in its final report that industrial hemp be declassified as a Schedule 1 controlled substance. While I am disappointed that it didn’t make the list of recommendations, I am pleased with the ongoing dialogue we have with the secretary’s office.Joining Farm Bureau in support is the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, National Farmers Union, the National Conference of State Legislatures, and many other organizations across the country. To negate any talk that this is a left-leaning fringe issue, 14 current and former GOP governors have enacted hemp legislation under their watch — including Vice President Mike Pence.In November, Wisconsin became the 34th state to pass some form of legislation to legalize hemp production with unanimous support in the legislature and with the backing of Governor Scott Walker. As Wisconsin gears up for its first hemp planting season since 1957, this emerging and promising rural economic opportunity is under serious threat.On Feb. 15, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco heard a case, Hemp Industries Association v. Drug Enforcement Administration. The crux of the case is the DEA’s 2016 “Final Rule” that applied a controlled substances code number to cannabis extract products that contain one or more cannabinoids, including non-psychoactive cannabinoids that meet the federal industrial hemp definition of less than 0.3% THC, like Cannabidiol. The DEA’s position is so egregious that 28 members of Congress lent their names to a bipartisan amicus brief in support of HIA’s claim that the DEA has overstepped its bounds and that the Final Rule “was an abuse of DEA’s administrative rulemaking authority and otherwise not in accordance with law.”Covering the entire political spectrum, these bold members of Congress — including Reps. Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.), Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) — argue that “through the Final Rule, DEA is stifling economic development and commercial exploration of industrial hemp. It is undercutting the legislative text of Section 7606 of the Farm Bill by prohibiting marketing research of industrial hemp-derived extracts under an agricultural pilot program. This is the very opposite of what Congress passed into law and the purpose behind it.” America’s industrial hemp farmers, entrepreneurs and researchers agree.I urge President Trump and Congress to join the Wisconsin Farm Bureau and many other supporters in calling for the passage of Rep. James Comer’s (R-Ky.) H.R. 3530, the Industrial Hemp Farming Act. This legislation will classify hemp as it should be, an agricultural commodity, and permanently remove it from the jurisdiction of the DEA.Wisconsin farmers are hurting. It was recently reported that out of 94 federal court districts, the western district of Wisconsin experienced more farm bankruptcies than any other in 2017. This might help explain why 250 attendees showed up on a cold, blustery night in Eau Claire to attend a hemp seminar we recently hosted and more than 300 others have watched the video recording of it. I’m sure some were curious, but many others are desperate for options in this time of depressed commodity, milk and livestock prices.President Trump and Congress can lessen the burden of regulation that is stifling innovation, research and entrepreneurship in the emerging hemp industry, and join Congressman Comer and others in supporting the Industrial Hemp Farming Act. Through the support of the president and Congress, we can finally make it happen.last_img read more

Yoshida says Japan doesnt have excuses

first_imgThe Japan national team captain says Qatar were superior, but the 2019 AFC Asian Cup helped the Japanese get better.Japan lost the 2019 AFC Asian Cup 3-1 against Qatar on Friday in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.The Japanese had a very good run in the continental tournament, winning six consecutive matches before losing to the 2022 FIFA World Cup hosts.And even after not lifting the trophy, Samurai Blue captain Maya Yoshida says they are responsible for their own defeat.“It’s difficult to describe how it feels,” Yoshida was quoted by First Post.“We were too passive, a bit naive and made so many mistakes. We conceded two goals at the beginning of the game which we shouldn’t have – we simply weren’t good enough.”“But they played well and deserve to be champions. No excuses, we move on,” he explained.“That third goal was really tough to accept.”“It killed the game. If that’s a penalty I probably have to jump without using my arms. It was accidental – but that was the referee’s decision,” he added about the controversial decision to award Qatar a penalty kick.“It’s a huge disappointment but we have to learn from it.”Christian Pulisic ‘happy’ with his Chelsea debut Andrew Smyth – July 19, 2019 Christian Pulisic was happy with how Chelsea debut turned out despite it ending in a 1-0 friendly defeat to Kawasaki Frontale.Now Japan and Qatar will participate in the 2019 Copa America to be played in Brazil this summer.“We have to lift ourselves and take the right energy into the Copa America and the (2022) World Cup qualifiers,” Yoshida continued.“It’s probably one of the hardest defeats of my career.”“I got caught out for all three goals. But losing is part of football, he concluded.2019 Japan will now play the Kirin Challenge Cup in March against Colombia and Bolivia.Then they will host the Kirin Asia Challenge Cup against Australia and China.The Samurai Blue will start their Copa America challenge on June 17 against Chile, three days later they take on Uruguay and finish the Group Stage against Ecuador.Let’s go to the @afcasiancup final. #AsianCupFinal#asiancup2019 #bringasiatogether pic.twitter.com/3Uc9nintSh— MAYA YOSHIDA (@MayaYoshida3) January 31, 2019last_img read more
