In a Tuesday email to students, associate vice president for Residential Life Heather Rakoczy Russell announced Notre Dame will begin the move out process May 22.Students will have the option to retrieve their belongings through an in-person appointment or opt to have their belongings packed, stored or shipped.“In-person move out appointments (4 hours in duration) will take place over the course of three weeks, including weekends,” Rakoczy Russell said in the email. “Appointment days for students returning in-person will be followed by appointment days for family/friend proxies. Appointment times are not yet available, but Residential Life will contact students in the coming week with further information.”In an effort to follow public health recommendations the scheduled move out appointments will prevent students from moving out of the same room at the same time. This will also allow for each building’s high-touch surfaces to be cleaned daily.According to the email, “All items left in residence halls after the move out process ends will be disposed of or donated, and may be subject to additional removal costs. Goodwill donation drop-off points will also be available.”Students have the option to “employ a local moving service for assistance, but must accompany that service in-person during their scheduled appointment time.”The University will allow Handled, a third-party vendor, to pack, store or ship belongings to students who are not able to return to campus in person.“The cost of the packing and storage service starts at $545 per student, which includes four large boxes, three bulk items and free local storage in a non-climate-controlled container through September 30,” Rakoczy Russell said in the email.Students have the option to purchase extra boxes, box items, extend storage and/or ship items to their homes for an additional cost.Rakoczy Russell added in the email that “for whom a return trip to campus might present a particular financial hardship,” the Office of Student Enrichment is available for assistance.Tags: COVID-19, Heather Rakoczy Russell, move-out
Women’s World Cup 2019: Full bracket, dates, times, TV channels, results for every match Host France is sitting close behind the U.S. at 4/1 odds to win it all. If the Les Bleues advance past the next two rounds and win the finals, they would earn their first major international trophy. Related News The defending champion Americans are still the favorites entering the quarterfinals of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup after coming out of the round of 16 with a close 2-1 win against Spain.The U.S., however, will have to advance past a challenging France team in the quarterfinals Friday (3 p.m. ET, Fox) to have a chance at winning the finals. “I hope it’s huge and crazy. That’s what it should be. This is the best game, this is what everybody wanted,” U.S. co-captain Megan Rapinoe said ahead of Friday’s match. “Seems like they’re up for it. (The media) of course is up for it, and all the fans. Maybe it’ll be a pretty even split between the fans in the stadium.” Germany is another team that could take the title from the U.S. The Germans enter the quarterfinals at 9/2 and face Sweden on Saturday.

Four full England internationals, all of whom are at college in the United States, will represent England Golf in the annual Jones Invitational Cup at Ocean Forest Golf Club at Sea Island, Georgia, on 31st January – 2nd February. The quartet will be Seb Crookall-Nixon (Workington, Cumbria), Greg Eason (Kirby Muxloe, Leicestershire), Ben Stow (Rushmore, Wiltshire) and Ben Taylor (Walton Heath, Surrey) who will seek to secure this title that has continually eluded English players. Crookall-Nixon (image copyright Tom Ward Photography), 20, a member of the England squad for the past two years, is at the University of San Francisco. He was the English under 16 champion in 2008 and 2009, and made his full England debut in the 2012 Home Internationals. He also reached the quarter finals of the English Amateur Championship in his home county of Cumbria that year and represented England Golf in last year’s Jones Cup. Eason, 21, is a former boy cap who was named as reserve for last year’s GB&I Walker Cup team. Has been at college in the University of Central Florida since 2010 and won his second event on the college circuit, the Adams Cup, in that year. Has enjoyed further successes on the other side of the Atlantic and is a member of the England squad for 2014. Stow, 22, has been an England cap since 2011, a year in which he won the Welsh Youths Championship and the South West Championship and helped Wiltshire to the first of their back-to-back County Championships. He was the leading individual when England won the European Men’s Challenge Trophy in Iceland in 2012 and he was a member of the last two Home Internationals teams. He is currently at the University of Kentucky. Taylor, 21, is a past winner of the South East Junior Championship, the South of England Boys Championship and the Daily Telegraph Junior Championship. He made his full England debut in the 2011 Home Internationals in Ireland and in 2012 finished third in the Turkish Amateur and the Jones Cup, the best by an England player to date. In 2012, he was a quarter finalist in the English Amateur and represented GB&I in the St Andrews Trophy. Last year he finished equal third in the Brabazon Trophy. He has enjoyed considerable success first at the Nova Southeastern University in Florida and now at Louisiana State. The Jones Cup comprises a field of 84 top amateurs from the US and around the world, who will compete over 54 holes of stroke play for this prestigious title which was inaugurated in 2001 as a biennial event but which is now played annually. 17 Jan 2014 International quartet seek to end barren spell in Jones Cup
SAN DIEGO — The Giants know they weren’t dealt the best hand at the table.They don’t have an elite starting staff, an offense full of home run hitters or a roster lined with All-Stars capable of calling other team’s bets.A month before the trade deadline, they decided to ignore the odds and push in their chips anyway. With a 18-4 record in their last 22 games, the Giants are all in and suddenly a threat to outlast their competition.“Now we’re kind of in a situation where we’re playing with …
17 December 2010South Africans continued to build on their ever-improving performances in all forms of cycling in 2010, excelling on the road, on the track, in mountain biking and in BMX.The country had the honour of hosting the UCI BMX World Championships in August in Pietermaritzburg and the venue certainly sparkled with a one-of-a-kind track that sported two starting ramps and was rated as one of the finest tracks ever built.Latvia’s Maris Strombergs raced to the men’s elite title, but South African star Sifiso Nhlapo gave the home crowd plenty to cheer by finishing second.Great Britain’s Shanaze Reade won the women’s elite title, while South African women picked up three gold medals in age group racing.UCI Mountain Bike World CupIn June, it had been learnt that Pietermaritzburg would host a round of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup in 2011. The city had previously very successfully hosted a round in 2009, but the withdrawal of global sponsor Nissan due to the worldwide economic meltdown had prevented the 2010 event taking place.South African hopes for 2011 will be high after Pietermaritzburg local Greg Minnaar won the downhill title in his home town in 2009 and Burry Stander, from Port Shepstone on the KwaZulu-Natal coast, finished third in the cross-country.Both men continued to shine in 2010. Minnaar, a three-time overall World Cup winner, finished runner-up to Britain’s Gee Atherton in the final standings as the South African’s team, Santa Cruz Syndicate once again dominated.During the year, Minnaar recorded wins in Leogang (Aut), Maribor (Slo), and at Fort William in Scotland. He finished third in the World Championships.Stander finished seventh overall in the cross country rankings. His best result was a third place at the World Championships in Canada, and at the first World Cup stop in Dalby Forest in Britain.In 2009 Stander was crowned the under-23 world champion so his best years are still ahead of him.World championAnd speaking of young talent, Bernard Esterhuizen scored one for South African track cyclists when he sprinted to the one-kilometre time trial title at the UCI Junior World Track Championships in Montichiari, Italy.Former Olympic track cyclist JP van Zyl told Cycling South Africa: “Bernard Esterhuizen is the ‘Real Deal’ of South African track cycling.He continued: “His winning time of 1:03.265 is world class. In my opinion, it is lightning fast.”Esterhuizen is based at the UCI’s World Cycling Centre in Aigle, Switzerland.On the women’s side of things, Ashleigh Moolman Pasio made a favourable impression when she became the first African to finish in the top 20 Giro d’Italia Internazionale Femminile. What made her achievement even more remarkable is that Moolman Pasio was ill on the final four days of racing in the mountains.Tour of South AfricaThere was good news for South African cycling in late November when it was announced that the UCI-backed Tour of South Africa will take place from 19 to 26 February 2011.The eight-day, seven-stage event is expected to prove a popular draw for international teams, scheduled as it is just after the Tour Down Under and before the start of the Spring Classics in Europe.Phil Liggett, known as “The Voice of Cycling”, is a big fan of South Africa (he owns a couple of properties in the country) and will lead the television coverage of the event.Pat McQuaid, the president of the UCI, commented at the launch of the race route: “I am looking forward to the future, where it will have a place among the greatest races of the world.”Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

ADDRESS BY PRESIDENT CYRIL RAMAPHOSA AT THE INTERNATIONAL TELECOMMUNICATION UNION (ITU) TELECOM WORLD 2018
Read the full text of the address by South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Telcom World 2018 on Monday 10 September at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Convention Centre, eThekweni.Programme Director, Minister Nomvula Mokonyane,Acting Premier of KwaZulu-Natal, Mr Sihle Zikalala,Executive Mayor of Ethekwini, Ms Zandile Gumede,Ministers and Deputy Ministers,Secretary General of the ITU, Mr Houlin Zhao,AU Commissioner for Infrastructure and Energy, Dr Amani Abou-Zeid,Members of the diplomatic corps,Distinguished delegates,Esteemed guests,Ladies and Gentlemen,It is a great privilege to address this opening session of the ITU Telecom World 2018.It is an honour as the government and the people of South Africa to host this event for the first time on the African continent.For us, the ITU Telecom World provides a guide to the future.The deliberations that take place here concern the economy and society of tomorrow that we are building today.We are at the dawn of a digital revolution that will reshape the way we work, they way we live and the way we relate to each other.Technological change is proceeding at a pace far greater than anything humanity has experienced before.It is through forums like this that we are able not only to anticipate technological change, but also to harness it for the advancement of humanity.It is through bodies like the International Telecommunication Union that we craft a digital agenda for inclusivity, sustainability and development.We have the means and the responsibility to direct the evolution of information and communications technology towards the achievement of a better life for all the peoples of the world.It is our task to ensure that the 4th Industrial Revolution improves the human condition and that no one is left behind.It is our task to ensure that this digital revolution responds to the needs of the developing world.It must assist in overcoming unemployment, not exacerbate it.It must bridge the digital divide, not widen it.It must employ the latest in communications technology and data analytics to solve some of the world’s greatest development challenges.The decisions we make now, as individual countries and as a global collective, will determine whether the 4th Industrial Revolution is the opportunity that so many people anticipateor the threat that so many people fear.As our economies become increasingly dependent on information and communication techology, it is critical that governments work more closely with industry to maximise the value of digital innovations.It is equally critical that both government and industry develop effective collaborative relationships with the communities they are both expected to serve.It is such relationships that are required, for example, for the accelerated rollout of broadband in areas that are generally seen asnot being economically viable.And yet, the presence of broadband in such areas is vital for the viability of the economy.The rapid expansion of broadband reach and accessibility is a priority in South Africa because it is a key determinant of economic inclusion.There are currently 20 million South Africans who do not use the internet, for a range of reasons such as unaffordable data prices, lack of internet-enabled devices and lack of access.Yet, about 87% of households in South Africa have access to mobile phones, presenting us with a great opportunity to overcome digital exclusion and to drive inclusive growth and innovation.Government has recently decided to accelerate the licensing of the radio frequency spectrum in the 2.6Ghz, 700Mhz and 800Mhz bands to hasten the growth of mobile communications.We have finalised consultations with the telecommunications industry and other stakeholders to ensure allocation of spectrum reduces barriers to entry, promotes competition and reduces costs to consumers.Following a Cabinet decision last month, our regulator ICASA is now preparing to licenceavailable high demand spectrum.In addition, we have begun work in preparation for 5G spectrum licensing as part of our efforts to build a smarter digital economy.Earlier this year, we announced plans toestablish a Digital Industrial Revolution Commission to ensure we are in a position to seize the opportunities of the rapid advances in information and communication technology.We are informed by research that associates investment in ICTs with such economic benefits as higher productivity, lower costs, new economic opportunities, job creation, innovation and increased trade.Information and communication technology also helps provide better services in health andeducation and strengthens social cohesion.Our work in this area coincides with agreement on the establishment of an African Continental Free Trade Area, which will create a single market of over a billion people.At the Plenipotentiary of the African Telecommunications Union held last month in Nairobi, South Africa was mandated to lead a five-country committee to coordinate the development of the continental response to the 4th Industrial Revolution.This is a task that we undertake in support of the African Union’s Agenda 2063, which seeks a continent with diverse and inclusive economies,advanced infrastructure and a skilled and capable population.In promoting this vision, we see a key role for technology.It was precisely this – the developmental role of technology – that South Africa’s founding President Nelson Mandela affirmed when he addressed the 7th World Telecommunications Conference and Exhibition in Geneva in 1995.It was the first year that South Africa participated in the global event as a full member of the ITU.In his speech, President Mandela said it was crucial for South Africa and the entire African continent to be part of the organisation that would drive international policy, technological development, cooperation and skills transfer.Now, in the year of the centenary of his birth, let us be guided by his vision of a world in which everyone is connected, not only by technology, but also by a common humanity.Since rejoining the ITU, South Africa has worked with other member countries to advocate for the transformation of the institution and the entire global communications landscape to promote equality and inclusivity.In the World Summit on Information Society,held in Geneva in 2003 and Tunis in 2005, we advocated for a people-centred and development-oriented information society, where citizens’ lives are enhanced by ICTs and member states are recognised on an equal footing.We continue to champion the internet as a tool for social and economic development.We support universal broadband and universal broadcasting to connect all citizens and ensure that they have access to information.Most recently, we have advocated for the safety of ICT infrastructure and secure use by all online.Important to Africa and developing countries is the need for countries to share manufacturing and localisation opportunities to allow equal access and shared growth throughout the world.We support equitable access to global ICT resources such as orbital slots, satellites and governance of the internet.Distinguished Guests,Ladies and Gentlemen,We firmly believe that there is a strong correlation between innovation and growth.South Africa recently embarked on an investment drive to attract $100 billion in new investment in the country over the next five years.This is part of a broader effort to set the economy on a new path of growth, employment and transformation.We will be holding an Investment Conference on 25-27 October, where we will showcase the country’s lucrative investment offerings.We are determined that the ICT sector be an integral part of this investment drive, with a focus on infrastructure investment, e-commerce, local manufacturing of equipment, and innovation.South Africa has demonstrated its capabilities in the development and deployment of information and communications technology.We expect that the Investment Conference will help to demonstrate the country’s great potential.In conclusion, we are certain that Telecom World 2018 will produce innovative solutions tosocietal challenges and establish a platform for greater inclusive growth.I thank our industry partners and state owned companies that heeded the call to support government in hosting this event for the first time on African soil.Special thanks to the Secretary-General, the entire leadership and officials of the ITU for having shown confidence in our country to host this event.To our guests from across the continent and across the world, we are honoured and delighted to welcome you to our shores.It is my pleasure to officially declare the ITU Telecom World 2018 open.I thank you.
