OUCA believe in a thing called Love

first_imgAmerican rock musician Courtney Love treated members of the Oxford University Conservative Association to a lively visit last Sunday.By the end of the night the celebrity had not only joined the Association, but was also elected as the group’s first ‘Non-Executive Officer for Rock and Roll’.Students departing from the evening’s Union debate were surprised to find Love in the Goodman Library. “I thought some people were going to faint,” said Trinity PPEist Joseph Gold-Ochsner.The event covered many topics. During a discussion of foreign policy, Love claimed that Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has made romantic overtures to her and offered to try and exercise leverage over his oil export policy on behalf of Britain and the US.Love was in possession of a walking stick which she claimed to have once belonged to Sir Winston Churchill. As the event got underway Love stipulated that whoever intended to speak should be in possession of the item.Joe Cooke, OUCA President-Elect, said that despite incessant lobbying for Love to donate the cane to the society, “she insisted that it was for P Diddy’s birthday.”Adi Balachander, a History student at St Anne’s, sat next to Love throughout most of the night. “I found her to be a very friendly person. She was quite happy to find so many young people interested in politics,” he said.The celebrity was said to have been interested in the “Tory culture” and the differences between American and British conservatives. Love’s visit also attested to her career in rock and roll. As the meeting came to a close Love commended everyone in attendance to climb onto tables and sing the theme tune from ‘Dad’s Army’, also accompanying the young conservatives in their renditions of ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘God Save the Queen’. After the event Love accompanied students to the King’s Arms.Joe Cooke does not believe any one in attendance will forget the night soon. He told Cherwell, “I was shocked to find a rock star in our midst.”OUCA President Henry Evans was notified earlier in the day by the Union that Love wished to attend OUCA’s weekly ‘Port and Policy’ event. The celebrity was reportedly in Oxford visiting a friend, enjoying a day of pheasant shooting and looking for property in Oxfordshire. Love spoke at the Oxford Union last year. Her talk focussed on relationships and spirituality.last_img read more

Getting Reacquainted with Hiking

first_imgI’m not sure when I stopped hiking, but at some point in my adult life, I completely abandoned the pursuit. When our kids were babies, we hiked all the time. It was the easiest outdoor adventure we could undertake with two screaming babies in tow. Throw them in those backpacks and start walking until they stopped yelling. They loved it. Things got difficult when they started walking. I should say, things got slower. Instead of humping through several miles of technical terrain with babies strapped to our backs, we were lucky to make it 100 yards from the trailhead because every leaf, every mud puddle demanded thorough exploration. And my wife and I were fine with it. We’d read on the internet that we should let our kids explore the outdoors at their own pace. And if the internet says so, then so be it.But then, a couple of years later, our kids stopped wanting to hike. Other pursuits took precedence. Tubing and standup paddleboarding. Riding bikes. Rock climbing. We were still exploring the outdoors on a regular basis, we just weren’t hiking. When free time is limited, and you have a choice between ripping singletrack on a mountain bike or meandering through the woods on foot, my family tends to lean toward the faster pursuit.Then one Sunday, on a whim, my wife declared that we’d be spending the day at Blue Ridge Pinnacle, a short but steep hike near Mount Mitchell off the Parkway. She was already packing the lunches when she told us of her plan. There was no negotiating the matter. We were going to hike that day whether we liked it or not.And we did like it. The hike itself was incredible, moving through grassy meadows and stands of evergreens, along short cliffs and over boulders until we stood on the crest of a fin of granite, overlooking a large swath of the Southern Appalachians below us. We’d just missed peak foliage, but the mountains were still painted a deep, burnt sienna. And the kids were super stars. They still stopped to explore, climbing trees and jumping off rocks, but their pace was quick, almost frantic as they moved from one nook along the trail to another. When we reached the summit, they took turns “bouldering” on a gray slab, then posed for silly pictures near the edge of the rock. And we had time to be silly together. We could talk and joke and chase each other and rest on rocks to eat M&Ms. That’s the sort of interaction you get to enjoy when you’re hiking. The pace is slower than mountain biking, you don’t get the adrenaline or sense of challenge that rock climbing offers, but every once in a while, maybe slow and simple is the right choice for a family.last_img read more

Tom Brady remains optimistic after Patriots’ loss to Dolphins: ‘We still have a lot of football to play’

first_img“We’ve had a lot of tough losses over the years. We lost pretty important games,” Brady said Monday during his weekly interview on sports radio station WEEI, via ESPN. “What’s the difference between losing by 14 down there, losing by 50, or losing by 1? They all count the same.”Mental toughness is mental toughness. You realize that a lot of things had to go right for them to win, and they did. You know, give them credit. They made some important plays.” Related News WATCH: Dolphins defeat Patriots on miraculous final play Rob Gronkowski: ‘I did sucky’ as ‘Miami Miracle’ safety Brady broke down New England’s road struggles, which continued at Hard Rock Stadium. He said the losses in Week 2 against the Jaguars and Week 3 versus the Lions were due to slow starts and that the contest in Tennessee was because the Titans physically outplayed the Patriots.But against the Dolphins, Brady said, “We had every opportunity to win that game.””So it’s not (that) I don’t think we can win on the road. We’ve won on the road, played well on the road. We just have to close the deal,” he added. center_img A one-point loss or a 50-point loss, it’s all the same for Tom Brady.So, when the Patriots fell to the Dolphins 34-33 in Miami on Sunday, Brady remembered some of the team’s tough losses from the past but also recognized there is still plenty of football left to play. New England, which is atop the AFC East at 9-4, will have a chance to even its road record in Pittsburgh in Week 15.”We still have a lot of football to play. There was a lot of positives from yesterday’s game that we have to kind of use going forward, that we will use going forward. Our whole season is ahead of us, so let’s make the most of it,” Brady said.last_img read more

‘Lucky’ guy Wenger looks to fresh start after fitting farewell

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Arsene Wenger said he is looking forward to a fresh start despite his sadness at bidding farewell to Arsenal after 22 years in charge as manager.Wenger was given a fitting send-off in his final home game at the Emirates on Sunday as Arsenal produced a devastating performance to thrash Burnley 5-0.On a day dominated by tributes to the Frenchman, Wenger was greeted with a guard of honour before kick-off and presented with a special gold trophy originally given to the club for winning the Premier League without losing a game in 2003/04 under his guidance.“This stadium I have worked on every single part from your press conference to the technical areas, so it is part of myself,” said Wenger, who was given a hero’s reception on a final lap of honour at full-time.“I can say guys who managed 22 years in a club of that stature, there are not many.“I have been lucky to have the comfort to work for such a long time in a club of that stature.“On the other hand, I have to think, I will cherish every minute I had here, but as well it is a new start for me.”Wenger, 68, hasn’t hidden his desire to continue working in some capacity next season, having also hinted his departure wasn’t entirely his own decision. Despite winning three Premier League titles in his first decade in charge, many fans had become frustrated with the Gunners’ inability to challenge for the Premier League and Champions League in recent years.Arsenal will finish this season in sixth, as low as they ever have in Wenger’s reign, and defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-finals means for a second straight season Wenger has failed to qualify Arsenal for the Champions League.Nevertheless, there was rightly an atmosphere steeped in nostalgia for the great days Wenger has given the club on Sunday in a 60,000-capacity stadium he helped to deliver and design when the club moved from Highbury in 2006.“It means that even if they are not always happy, they still respected me and wanted to show at least I gave my total commitment to do well,” said Wenger of his ovation from the supporters.“That’s how I see it. They know my commitment was genuine, total, with complete integrity, it is of course a big compliment.”last_img read more

Eyes on AFCON as Stars battle Walias in Bahir

first_img0Shares0000Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne during a past training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 10 – Tuesday evening news that Sierra Leone had failed to meet conditions set by FIFA to lift a suspension on the country has now thrown Group F of the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier into new dimensions.The Confederation of African Football (CAF) tweeted later that the double header pitting the Leone Stars against Ghana’s Black Stars had been called off. This essentially means that on the road to qualifying for next year’s Cup of Nations, any results picked against the West Africans will be annulled. This means Ethiopia who beat Sierra Leone 1-0 last month will be on zero points while Ghana and Kenya who lost away to the Leone Stars are now on three.Breaking news: AFCON Qualifier matches Ghana vs Sierra Leone & Sierra Leone vs Ghana on the 11th and 14th of October respectively have been cancelled as SLFA did not meet the conditions stipulated in the letter sent by CAF on FIFA’s decision to suspend the federation.#AFCONQ2019— CAF (@CAF_Online) October 9, 2018The new development means that Kenya needs at least four points off Ethiopia, who they face in a span of four days, to qualify for next year’s showpiece in Cameroon.The first leg will be staged at the 60,000-seater Bahir Dar Stadium in Ethiopia’s Amhara region, almost 500km away from the capital city Addis Ababa.Kenya’s Harambee Stars go into the match tails up after last month’s win over group leaders Ghana in Nairobi and head coach Sebastien Migne has urged his charges to ‘confirm’ that the result against the Black Stars was no mere fluke and pick three points against the Ethiopians.Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne passes on instructions before a training session at the Bahir Dar Stadium in Ethjiopia“It was a fantastic result but the most important thing in the high level is to confirm the same kind of performance. It is a tough challenge we have because Ethiopia is a tough team but we will try to compete well,” Migne said on Tuesday evening after the side’s training session in Bahir Dar.He added; “We are on the way to write a new page for Kenyan football but this is the beginning, we will try to write good book for the future,”The French tactician says his team is ready for the tie despite a short training period together with most of the players having joined up with the squad on Monday in Bahir Dar.He expects a tough duel especially with Bahir Dar’s intimidating atmosphere, but the French tactician says he will be happy to play in such an atmosphere.“I know Ethiopia because I have faced them previously in the World Cup qualification with Congo and I know this stadium has very good atmosphere. It is good for Ethiopia, but also good for football,” the tactician noted.Harambee Stars skipper Victor Wanyama during a training session at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on June 7, 2017. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaHis sentiments are shared by skipper Victor Wanyama; “We are ready for the match even though we have had less time to train together. But I feel the players are in good shape and we will tackle the match with positivity,” the midfielder said.Meanwhile, Ethiopia head coach Abraham Mebratu is optimistic his side is in the right frame to pick three points from Kenya and keep their AFCON dream alive.“We are only thinking about securing maximum points in home soil. All the teams in the group picked three points that made things to start from scratch. All we need to do is win our remaining games,” the tactician noted.Stars will be stronger heading into the Ethiopia game with four players who were absent for last month’s win over Ghana returning.Skipper Wanyama is available after gaining match fitness following a month-long injury spell, same as central defender Brian Mandela who is available after serving his one match suspension following a red card against Sierra Leone.Paul Were celebrating in apast match with Harambee Stars.PHOTO/courtesySensational winger Paul Were is also back in the team after recovering from injury same as midfielder Johannah Omollo who strained his hamstring on the eve of the game against Ghana.The only absentee will be defender Joash Onyango who is suspended after picking a red card against the Ghanaians in Nairobi.Migne is expected to stick up to the team that played against Ghana, though wingback Erick ‘Marcelo’ Ouma might be drafted in after impressing in an off-the-bench appearance in the friendly against Malawi.The headache for the French coach is whether to stick with David ‘Cheche’ Ochieng at the heart of defense after the Sweden based stopper came in following Onyango’s red card or to pull in Brian Mandela instead.The last time Kenya played in Ethiopia was in 2015 during the African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers where they lost 2-0 and missed a penalty.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
