College hosts younger siblings

first_imgSaint Mary’s College welcomed a variety of young faces to campus to celebrate Little Sibs Weekend with several days of circus-themed activities. “I brought my brother to Little Sibs last year, and I really wanted to be a part of it this year,” sophomore Chloe Derank, co-chair of Special Events for the Residence Hall Association (RHA), said. “I was reading ‘Water for Elephants,’ and I was like, ‘We should have a circus!’ and that’s what we ended up picking.” The weekend was an opportunity for Saint Mary’s students to share their campus with younger siblings and relatives, including spending a night in the residence halls. Events began with registration at 5 p.m. on Friday, where participants received a t-shirt that displayed the circus theme. The group ate s’mores and played board games in Regina Friday evening, Derank said. Derank said Saturday’s circus in Regina North Lounge drew the largest crowd. She estimated about 120 siblings showed up, accompanied by around 75 Saint Mary’s hosts. “From 9 [a.m.] to 12 [p.m.] we had a circus with a bunch of different games, and [the siblings] could get prizes and snacks,” Derank said. “We had this game called ‘Spray Away’ … and I think that was probably the biggest hit.” Sophomore Kaitie Maierhofer coordinated “Spray Away,” a game that allowed the younger siblings to squirt water at her. She also hosted her own siblings for the weekend. “‘Spray Away’ went really well,” she said. “I don’t know if [the siblings] enjoyed squirting me or the balls more, but it worked out.” Other attractions included magic shows, a temporary-tattoo parlor, a photo booth and slushies, first-year Maureen Hutchinson, fellow RHA Special Events co-chair, said. In the afternoon, siblings had the opportunity to make their own Chex Mix and color Easter-themed coloring pictures for arts and crafts, Hutchinson said. After, the group visited Dance Marathon, a dance-themed fundraiser for Riley Hospital for Children in the Angela Athletic Facility. “We did a scavenger hunt through there with [the siblings], and got to see all the fun stuff,” Derank said. Saturday’s activities concluded with an evening showing of the DreamWorks picture “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted.” The weekend ended Sunday morning with an obstacle course for the siblings to play on. “It was really fun,” Maierhofer said. “In my personal experience, [it was] better than last year. My sister had more fun this year than she did last year.” Derank said her participation in last year’s event inspired her to become involved with planning this year’s weekend. “A lot of the ideas for things came from Pinterest,” Hutchinson said. “The crafts [especially].” Little Sibs Weekend accommodated visitors ranging from around one year old to 18 years old, Derank said. “I think we did a pretty good job [of entertaining with that age range],” she said. “I think the circus was able to do that a lot.” Maierhofer said she and her sister enjoyed the flexibility of the weekend. “It works out well, knowing that you can do all of the activities, or just have your sibling come out and just [enjoy the weekend] with them,” Maierhofer said. Despite the inevitable stress involved with planning, Derank and Hutchinson said they felt the success of the weekend was worth it. “The best part was a little kid, probably 3 or 4, [getting] his T-shirt at registration,” Derank said. “His sister held up the shirt … and he got so excited because there was a circus animal on it … and that was just the best moment.”last_img read more

‘Take them off’: Ben Stokes’ extraordinary ‘request’ revealed

first_imgSport, Yahoo Sport UKIT was the incident that divided the cricket world and one that some still believe decided the Cricket World Cup.But according to one England great, Ben Stokes was not on the side you might have thought after his team benefitted from an unlikely clash between bat and ball.Needing nine runs from the final three balls to win the final, England were handed a huge slice of luck when the ball ricocheted off Stokes’ bat while he was running and it raced away to the boundary.As Stokes was coming back for a second run, the umpires awarded England the two runs plus another four for the overthrows – six in total.That ruling was questioned upon an inspection of the rulebook and decorated former umpire Simon Taufel declared the officials made a ‘clear mistake’ with their interpretation of law 19.8.The Australian umpire said England should only have been awarded five runs, rather than six.Now, in the days after the country soaked up their first World Cup triumph, Test star Jimmy Anderson has revealed Stokes apparently asked the umpires to reverse their decision.“The etiquette in cricket is if the ball is thrown at the stumps and it hits you and goes into a gap in the field you don’t run,” Anderson told a BBC podcast.“But if it goes to the boundary, in the rules it’s four and you can’t do anything about it.“I think, talking to Michael Vaughan who saw him after the game, Ben Stokes actually went to the umpires and said ‘can you take that four runs off? We don’t want it’.“But it’s in the rules and that’s the way it is.”Whether the umpires would have taken the runs off the board is one question – and the likely answer is no.The other is whether Anderson’s second-hand information from Vaughan is totally accurate, and that will remain up in the air until Stokes speaks again.But the all-rounder, who was once given out obstructing the field against Australia in 2015, was clearly shocked to have realised his bat redirected the ball from New Zealand’s throw.“I will be apologising to Kane for the rest of my life,” the Kiwi-born England star said after the match.The apparent mistake by the umpires affected more than the score to the tune of an added run.Had the rules been applied correctly, Stokes would have been at the other end for the penultimate ball of the innings.Adil Rashid should have taken strike with England needing four runs to win from two deliveries.But it was not to be, and to their credit nobody from New Zealand, the ICC or England has forced the issue.

Shohei Ohtani officially slated to return to Angels rotation on Wednesday

first_imgDETROIT — Shohei Ohtani will return to the mound on Wednesday, with nine days rest since his last start.“Body-wise, I can’t really tell at this point if I needed those two or three days, but I was able to hit an extra couple games because of those two or three days, so in that way it worked out,” Ohtani said through his interpreter on Tuesday, after the Angels officially announced his return to the rotation.Ohtani pitched against the Tampa Bay Rays on May 20, his third straight outing on a Sunday.

The body feels great. The performance is somewhat there, so I’m satisfied so far. … Everything has been really tough so far. I still have a lot of hurdles to overcome.
