I see Tony Cascarino periodically, he is a good lad Cas. I have not seen Andy Townsend for a while but I have seen Frank Sinclair. Eddie Newton is still doing some really good work at the club, and Andy Myers, and I am pleased the club has kept those players involved. That is very important and they are good role models for younger players.”Jason Cundy was another young player when I was at Chelsea. “I tried to help them along and they had a thirst for knowledge and a good attitude.” last_img read more

Florida Softball Mother Does Ridiculous Chicken Dance After Michigan Intentionally Walks Batter

first_imgFlorida Softball Mother does the chicken dance.Florida Softball Mother DanceAnyone who’s ever been to a college softball game knows that there is a lot of cheering and a lot of taunting. But one Florida softball fan (presumably the mother of a player on the team) took it to the next level Wednesday night.In the sixth inning, with Florida leading Michigan 4-1 in the championship game of the Women’s College World Series, the Wolverines intentionally walked Gators star Lauren Haeger both to avoid her and set up a potential double play. It did not sit well with everyone in attendance.Nice chicken dance, Florida Mom. https://t.co/dUaJUGKMRU— Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) June 4, 2015The move did eventually pay off, as Michigan got out of the inning without any damage. But Florida still won the title. We’ll assume this woman was happy with the overall result.last_img read more

Editor of CBCs The National reassigned after cultural appropriation flap

first_imgTORONTO – The managing editor of CBC’s “The National” was reassigned Wednesday for what the public broadcaster called “an inappropriate, insensitive and frankly unacceptable tweet” he made as part of a controversial debate over cultural appropriation.In a memo distributed to staff, CBC News editor-in-chief Jennifer McGuire said Steve Ladurantaye will now work on its digital “storytelling strategies” and reach out to indigenous communities “as part of his learning process.”“As you know, Steve Ladurantaye apologized for his action,” said McGuire in the memo. “He has made it his goal to better understand the appropriation issue from the perspective of Canada’s indigenous people.“We will support Steve in these efforts and I am confident that the work and conversations we are engaged in will, in the long run, make Steve and all of us better journalists and better leaders.”Last week, Ladurantaye was among the journalists who engaged in a late-night Twitter conversation that was sparked by a contentious magazine article advocating for more cultural appropriation in Canadian literature.In the Writers’ Union of Canada’s magazine Write, novelist and then-editor Hal Niedzviecki suggested “anyone, anywhere, should be encouraged to imagine other peoples, other cultures, other identities.”The opinion piece also suggested there should be an appropriation prize in literature.After the article was published, apologies came from the union as well as Niedzviecki, who resigned.Meanwhile, former National Post editor Ken Whyte responded by tweeting he would “donate $500 to the founding of the appropriation prize if someone else wants to organize.”Ladurantaye replied that he would contribute $100. He later deleted the tweet and apologized, saying “what I did was hurtful, and my apology is without condition.”“In short, I wasn’t thinking. I didn’t stop to think,” he said in a string of tweets.“That’s a problem. I need to address it. I didn’t stop to think about what it is like to not have my position or my power or my voice.”McGuire said she spent the last few days “meeting with individuals and groups who have experienced personal hurt and community impact” from Ladurantaye’s tweet.“This incident raised questions about CBC’s commitment to being a more inclusive and representative workplace in staffing, in leadership, and in content,” she said.Ladurantaye’s duties will be assumed by executive director of news content Jonathan Whitten, senior director of content experience Michael Gruzuk, and executive producer of “The National” Caroline Harvey, said a CBC spokesman.McGuire’s memo also noted that Ladurantaye’s future with “The National” will be reassessed in the fall.The CBC said Wednesday that Ladurantaye was not going to comment on his reassignment.The move comes a few days after Jonathan Kay stepped down from his job as editor-in-chief at The Walrus magazine.While Kay said his reasons for leaving the magazine were “somewhat mundane,” his departure followed an opinion piece he wrote in the National Post defending the right to debate cultural appropriation.In an email to The Canadian Press, Kay said his interests as an editor no longer aligned with the priorities of the organization that produces the magazine.last_img read more
