The name Alex Cappa should serve as a rallying cry for Humboldt State football right now, and his recent rise to prominence couldn’t have come at a better time for the troubled program.After all, how many Division-II schools on the West Coast – or anywhere – can legitimately tell potential recruits, if you play for us you could be picked in the top three rounds of the NFL draft.Cappa, a four-year starter for the Jacks and a four-time conference offensive lineman of the year, has been gaining …
By Caitlin Hunter and Heidi Radunovich, PhDCreative Commons Licensing [Flickr, 140402-A-OP735-271, April 2, 2014] retrieved on September 10, 2015Survivors of Military Sexual Trauma (MST) often have high rates of posttraumatic stress disorder and other psychiatric problems. However, according to attachment theory, caretaker response (especially maternal response) to the needs of their child can greatly influence future adjustment, even in the case of traumatic childhood events. But can high levels of maternal care following child sexual abuse serve as a protective factor in the event of MST in adulthood? A study of 197 veterans previously deployed to Afghanistan/Iraq, 86% of whom served in the Army, found approximately 21% of participants reported experiencing sexual abuse in childhood, and 14% reported MST . Results suggested that veterans who experienced sexual abuse in childhood were more likely than non-abused veterans to experience MST. However, childhood sexual abuse only showed a significant association with MST when maternal care during childhood was low. Among veterans who experienced childhood sexual abuse, rates of reported MST were significantly higher among those who reported low levels of maternal care (43%) compared with those who reported high levels of maternal care (11%).The major finding of this study is that higher levels of maternal care might serve as a protective factor for those at risk for MST based on a history of child sexual abuse. However, the presence of child sexual abuse and low levels of maternal care might be indicative of an overall adverse childhood environment, with multiple risk factors that could contribute to victimization in adulthood. Veterans who reported childhood sexual abuse and high levels of maternal care might have been brought up in an environment with less risk factors for future victimization.Overall, this research highlights the importance of improving relationships between parents and children, particularly in situations involving child abuse. Of course, while maintaining supportive relationships is necessary in healing after a traumatic event, it is also critical to focus on ways to prevent sexual abuse from occurring at all, both during childhood and in the military setting.References Wilson, L.

His attacking game with the accent being on spin has earned him an impressive track record in the relatively short time since he made his national debut. Currently ranked No. 2 in the country after Niraj Bajaj, Dua’s present form is bringing him closer to regaining the National title he lost to Bajaj in 1975. After going through an indifferent period last year which reaped him a lean harvest, Dua is once again back among the titles.The current T.T, season has just got off the ground, and already Dua has clinched the major titles so far, including the prestigious Western India Championships and the recently concluded Times of India Tournament, one of the few prize money tournament held in the country.

Chennai: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman Tuesday said the slowdown in the automobile sector was due to many factors like the change in mindset of millennials,who now prefer taxi aggregators like OLA and UBER instead of committing for monthly installments to own a car. Sitharaman said the automobile industry did have its “good times” till two years ago. “It was definitely a good upward trajectory for the automobile sector”, she told reporters. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe minister said the sector had been affected by several things, including movement towards BS-VI norms and registration related matters and (also) change in mindsets. She said some studies had revealed that there was a change in the mindset of the millenials not to commit any EMIs (equated monthly installments) towards buying an automobile and instead taking OLA, UBER or the Metro (train) services. “So, a whole lot of factors are influencing the automobile sector. We are all seized of the problem. we will try to solve it”, she said. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostThe Bharat Stage VI (or BS-VI) emission norm will come into force from 1 April 2020 across the country. Currently, vehicles conform to BS-IV emission standards. On August 23, in a bid to address the slowdown in the auto sector, Sitharaman had announced lifting the ban on purchase of vehicles by government departments and allowed an additional 15 per cent depreciation on vehicles acquired from now till March 2020. Also, the government clarified that BS-IV vehicles purchased up to March 2020 would remain operational for the entire period of registration, while also considering various measures, including scrappage policy to boost demand. Aditionally, she, while stressing the need to speed up spending, said that a task force set up by the government to boost investments in infrastructure projects is in the process of identifying sectors requiring funding from the Centre. “Government spending has to be speeded up to boost consumption. The best spending (by government) will be on infrastructure. We have (already) announced Rs 100 lakh crore and that is the amount, which I think has to be speeded up for infrastructure related projects”, she said. Sitharaman was briefing reporters on ‘Furthering India’s development – 100 days of Bold initiatives and decisive actions of the Government of India.’ “I have appointed a task force to speedily identify the projects so that money can be front loaded”, she said. The Minister said the Committee (or the task force) has commenced work and was in the process of identifying those projects which would receive the funding (Rs 100 lakh crore). The task force, comprising secretaries from various ministries, other senior officials and the Niti Aayog CEO, would identify technically feasible and financially viable infrastructure projects that can be initiated in 2019-20, she said. Sitharaman said that the government, as part of its move to make India a $5 trillion economy, has chalked out various measures, including infrastructure spending and merger of public sector banks, among others. Asked whether the government was confident of achieving the targetted $5 trillion economy with the Gross Domestic Product at five per cent at present, she said the GDP going up and down was normal and recalled that it had happened even during the UPA regime in 2012-13 and 2014-15. “But I am not taking it as granted. I want to improve and (am) taking steps. One solace now is that inflation is under control. Food inflation (earlier) crossed 10 per cent But now it is 3.1 per cent. From 2014-till date, it did not touch four per cent. While worrying about the five per cent GDP, also look at the inflation rate”, she said. She said the current focus would be on how to increase the GDP in the coming quarters. On increase in gold prices, she said government was importing gold to meet local demand and consumers were also looking at it as an investment option. “Apart from the demand, other factors like crude oil price increase and the (fluctuating) $rate have also led to increase in gold prices”, she said. Asked how the government was infusing confidence among the business community, given the current slowdown, she said one measure was by interacting with them and addressing their issues sector wise. “All of us are constantly interacting with (each) sector. This is not just in Delhi, we are actively doing all around the country. We came out with two major announcements between August and September. I have promised that I will come out with one or two more announcements”, she said.
Bill Manning now has two championship teams to oversee.The Toronto FC president is adding Argonauts president to his title in the wake of the Canadian Football League board of governors approving the Argo purchase by Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE).Manning is now in charge of the MLS Cup and Grey Cup winners.“Toronto football. I can’t go wrong either way,” Manning joked.MLSE, which also owns the NHL’s Maple Leafs, NBA’s Raptors, AHL’s Marlies and Toronto FC, announced last month that it had an agreement in place to buy the Argonauts.There had already been some cross-ownership. The Argos were currently owned by two-thirds of the MLSE triumvirate — chairman Larry Tanenbaum’s holding company, the Kilmer Group, and Bell Canada.In bringing the Argos fully into the MLSE fold, Rogers Communications officially join its two MLSE partners as part of the CFL team’s ownership.“Clearly on the football side I think they’re in good shape,” Manning said of the CFL team.“This was just about how can we synergize the Argos into the MLSE portfolio,” he added. “Over the last few years, I’m really grateful that our board of directors and Larry thought that I’d done a good job with TFC and they wanted to see a similar model on how we can integrate the team side, the business side, the stadium side all into one.“And then obviously sharing a stadium (BMO Field), I think we can find some synergies there. And scheduling we can make sure that both teams really get to maximize their schedule. So it was just, I think, a lot of areas that I can oversee and just make sure that we kind of have this be a rising tide that raises both boats.”Manning, who took over TFC in October 2015, has football experience on his resume.A former United Soccer League executive of the year with the Minnesota Thunder, he was 34 when he took over as president and GM of the Mutiny in 2000. After the MLS folded the franchise after the 2001 season, he worked for the NBA Houston Rockets (director of corporate partnerships) and then the NFL Philadelphia Eagles (vice-president sales and services) before Real Salt Lake brought him back to MLS in 2008.He spent four years with the Eagles in all. There he was close to Tom Heckert, now senior personnel adviser for the Denver Broncos but formerly director of pro personnel for the Eagles.“We used to share notes on how to be a GM,” Manning said.Michael Copeland, who spent two years as Argonauts president and CEO, has been tabbed to join the MLSE leadership team along with Sara Moore, the Argonauts’ senior vice-president of business operations.Manning said their immediate roles will be to help the Argos’ transition into the MLSE family.“The Toronto Argonauts are an important and historic part of the sporting landscape in Toronto and across the country, and we appreciate the support of the CFL board of governors as the team officially becomes part of the MLSE family,” MLSE president and CEO Michael Friisdahl said in a release.“As we begin the process of incorporating the Argos into the organization, we are very pleased to name Bill Manning as president of the club in addition to his current responsibilities as president of Toronto FC.“Bill’s vast experience and championship vision as a sports executive will continue to be a great asset for Toronto FC, and now, the Argos. We look forward to Michael Copeland and Sara Moore joining the MLSE leadership team, and as a first order of business, playing an important role in the transition of the Argos to MLSE.”In the release, MLSE said the process of incorporating the team into the company’s business operations would continue over the coming months.“We are proud to officially welcome MLSE to the CFL and look forward to working with Bill Manning and the entire organization to enhance the experience for fans in Toronto, but also CFL fans right across the country,” said CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie.Founded in 1873, the Argonauts are North America’s oldest continuously operated professional football club.———Follow @NeilMDavidson and @GregoryStrongCP on Twitter.
