Students advocate “Equal Pay Day”

first_imgWhile many students spent yesterday afternoon in class or at lunch, junior Laura Corrigan and senior Cat Cleary advocated for equal pay. The Saint Mary’s students stood on the steps of the South Bend courthouse with Mayor Pete Buttigieg as he declared yesterday “Equal Pay Day.” “Equal Pay Day” is a recognized day across the nation intended to promote awareness for the fact women are paid less money than man, Cleary said. “It takes a woman 15 and a half months to earn what a man makes in a year,” she said. “Women earn 77 cents for every one dollar men earn. People will brush this issue off and say it isn’t relevant, but it is.” Corrigan and Cleary, sponsored by a grant provided by the American Association of University Women (AAUW), have been working all semester on projects and programs that promote the mission of the AAUW. “The mission of the AAUW is to break through barriers for girls and women,” Cleary said. During Spring Break, Cleary and Corrigan decided they wanted to devise a way to promote “Equal Pay Day” in the South Bend community. After reaching out to the local AAUW branch, the League of Women Voters of the South Bend area, the South Bend Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) and the Gender and Women’s Studies Department at Indiana University South Bend, Corrigan and Cleary drafted a letter to Mayor Buttigieg. The letter requested the mayor commemorate April 17 and bring awareness to the issue. “We wanted to draw attention to this issue,” Corrigan said. “[Women] have a lifetime of earnings ahead of us. Think how much money that is – the wage gap really adds up.” At noon on Tuesday, the mayor honored the letter’s request. During a press conference with reporters, business men and women and other community leaders, Mayor Buttigieg declared April 17 “Equal Pay Day.” The declaration was in sync with other organizations, protests and events throughout the nation also dedicated to promoting equal pay. “We were one small part of a larger movement,” Cleary said. “There were larger movements occurring all across the country.” Corrigan and Cleary said the process was relatively smooth and they were not worried about making their hopes of “Equal Pay Day” in South Bend a reality. “I know Buttigieg is very committed to social issues,” Cleary said. “I wasn’t worried; I knew we would have his support for this issue.” Corrigan agreed with Cleary, saying Mayor Buttigieg was a valuable assets to their work to promote “Equal Pay Day” in South Bend. “[Buttigieg] said it was important that men should care about this issue, too,” she said. “It’s not just a woman’s issue. It is important that everyone is aware about this problem.” Contact Bridget Feeney at bfeene01@saintmarys.edulast_img read more

Mourinho under fire after Man Utd’s meek Euro exit

first_img“Fellaini was by no means United’s worst player but what was he there for exactly? To expose what failing in Seville? To bring what to United’s midfield?,” asked chief sports writer Matt Dickinson.“True, he did go closer than his teammates to breaking the deadlock but if picking him always felt like turning up at a party with a baseball bat, United were duly lacking in any subtlety. Creative passing through central midfield was non-existent.”The Telegraph called United’s display “embarrassingly inept”.Only once the situation was dire did Mourinho throw on another £70 million of attacking talent in Anthony Martial and Juan Mata to ride to the rescue. But to no avail.“There are players in that squad to play good attacking football with the money that’s been spent,” said former United midfielder Paul Scholes, also part of the team that won the 2008 Champions League.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 Pogba, who cost a then world-record £89 million ($124 million) in 2016 as Mourinho’s first big signing, was again dropped, this time in favour of the more robust Marouane Fellaini, a decision that drew stinging criticism from The Times newspaper. Mourinho fielded four forwards — Sanchez, Lukaku, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard — in an attacking-looking line-up at Old Trafford but United only broke free of the shackles in the desperate closing minutes.A stubborn Mourinho, who has won the competition with Porto and Inter Milan, said his side had not put in a “bad performance” but that contrasted with the sour mood in Manchester after a first home European defeat since 2013 to a Sevilla side only fifth in La Liga.“If you are a team at home, the onus is on you to go out and attack and make sure you take the game away from the opposing team,” said former United defender Rio Ferdinand, who won the Champions League under Alex Ferguson in 2008.The question for fans is why Mourinho is seemingly unable, or unwilling, to set his attacking superstars free.center_img Manchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Jose Mourinho was condemned for his negative tactics after Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League to Sevilla, with Alexis Sanchez anonymous and Paul Pogba’s confidence apparently in tatters.United, riding high in the Premier League, started the second leg of their last-16 tie on Tuesday as strong favourites to progress to the quarter-finals after a goalless draw in Spain but mustered just four shots on target across both legs.Two late goals from substitute Wissam Ben Yedder gave the home side a mountain to climb and a consolation goal from Romelu Lukaku was far too little, too late, with United exiting the competition 2-1 on aggregate.last_img read more

City Roundup…Schenley states its case to be ‘top dog’ in the city

first_imgSchenley’s Jerome Mathews was the hero of the game against the Perry Commodores for two reasons. Numero uno—he combined with junior running back Shawn Davis to accumulate 109 yards rushing on 33 attempts, 18 of which he carried for 53 yards. Then he intercepted a Greg McGhee pass inside the Schenley 15-yard line within the final minute of the game to seal an 8-6 victory on Friday at Cupples Stadium. The 109 yards the Schenley running back tandem earned matched the total of the entire Perry offense.“We have to go back to the drawing board and completely re-evaluate some things over the next week,” said Bill Gallagher, Perry’s head coach. “Our team has to understand that this is a team game and we have to learn from our mistakes in order to improve.”The first points of the game were scored on a safety when McGhee was tackled in the end zone for a safety by Schenley’s Taylor Campbell with 5:35 left in the opening quarter. Also in the first, Schenley’s junior tailback DeAndre Black scored on a four-yard run to make the score 8-0.“I am impressed right now with the maturity of our kids at this point,” said Schenley’s head coach Jason Bell. “A lot of my underclassmen are stepping up and filling in some roles for some of my veterans.”One of those veterans is senior quarterback Darren Jackson, who was injured in last week’s game against Brashear. He is expected to miss the next two to three weeks with a shoulder injury. His replacement is sophomore quarterback Calvin Beck, who went 6 of 14 passing with 79 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions.The Schenley defense was strong. In addition to the total offense they allowed, they also held the Perry passing attack to 0-7 and 26 total yards in the first half. McGhee finished with eight completions on 22 attempts with 55 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions.“Hats off to Schenley,” said Gallagher. “They play with so much passion and enthusiasm. They are doing such a good job in that system.”The big game coming up this week will be Schenley vs. Brashear. The Bulls were heavy favorites coming into the season after two impressive undefeated seasons in which they rolled over City League competition. However, Perry stopped all that with an upset in the first game of the season, but then lost to Schenley in the second game. This sets up the big matchup this week in which the Spartans will have sole possession of first place if they can pull off the victory. Otherwise a there will be a three-way tie.Other games:Carrick 20, Allderdice 14Carrick opened play in the City League with a win. Carrick’s senior quarterback, Ryan Roeper continues to be one of the stronger passers in the City League. He went 8 of 18 for 100 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.This would, however, be a game that would go down to the wire. With 12 seconds left in the game, Jajuan Thomas caught a 3-yard touchdown pass from Rasheed McKamey. The two-point conversion was made by Roeper. That would be the second score that McKamey was involved in as he scored on a 2-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.Allderdice scored on runs by Patrick Ferguson (two yards) and Mike Pfleger (five yards).Oliver 24, Westinghouse 8This one was won on the hands of Tyrek Morgan, the legs of David Marshall, and the arm of quarterback Dante Jeter. Marshall started of the scoring with a 60-yard sprint to the end zone in the first quarter. Then, Jeter hooked up with Philip Upsher-Ferguson on a 50-yard touchdown pass, also in the first period. Jeter did it again in the second quarter, this time, with Morgan from 30 yards out to make it an 18-0 game going into the half.“Once again we waited too late,” said Westinghouse head coach Monte Robinson. “We need to come up with some faster starts as we go down the stretch. We have a lot of young guys who play with fire and are still learning. They really want to win.”Ryan Lucas of Oliver intercepted a Darrel Cosby pass in the third quarter and returned it 29 yards for a touchdown. Cosby responded and put his team on the board in the fourth quarter on an 11- yard run. He finished completing 14 passes on 30 attempts with 149 yards, no touchdowns and one pick. David Pryor and Marcus Falls each had six catches for 72 and 61 yards, respectively.“I must compliment Westinghouse on the effort,” said Tim Keefer, Oliver’s head coach. “Their kids played hard and hung in the game.”Jeter finished 4 of 9 with 97 yards, 2 touchdowns, and no interceptions.Brashear 61, Langley 0This game had been “mercy-ruled” at halftime with a score of 47-0, all Brashear. On the opening kickoff Manny Reed bolted up the sideline for an 85-yard score on the return. Bruce Patterson looked unstoppable. He finished with 11 rushes for 142 yards and 3 touchdowns, with two in the second half. Quarterback Henri Chatman added two rushing scores of his own including a 40-yard dash up the middle shaking several defenders to get there. He tacked on an 18-yard strike through the middle of the Langley “D” to senior wideout Manasseh Garner in the second half. Victor Bragano capped off the scoring with a 42-yard fumble recovery returned for 6 points late in the final quarter.(Follow our continuing coverage and add your comments of District 8 football to our website at newpittsburghcourieronline.com)(D.W.
