  • Controversial philosopher Peter Singer defends his infanticide views

    first_imgNewsHub 23 July 2020Family First Comment: How gross. But with free speech, he’s entitled to be objectionable, flawed, idiotic, ignored, and just plain wrong. We need to be reminded of these gross views. “ Huhana Hickey, who has used a wheelchair since 1996 and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2010, said in February Singer is “not an expert in the area of disability. His views against disabled people have been picked up by the abled community over the years and a lot of his views have been used against us,” she said. “He has every right to freedom of speech, they have every right to host him. I have every right to protest and to counter his speech around disability.”An Australian philosopher has defended his controversial views that parents of babies who have disabilities should have the right to euthanise them.Peter Singer, a professor of ethics, has argued it’s ethical to give parents the option to euthanise their babies if they have “severe disabilities”.He told Magic Talk his views aren’t “all that different from things that are happening right now” that are already generally approved.He says parents of severely disabled children are consulted by their physicians if the child is on a ventilator and in an Intensive Care Unit as to whether they want to continue to ventilate the child, he gives as an example.“I’m talking about really severe cases where the prospects for the child are very poor, and if parents say ‘look under these circumstances it would be better to withdraw the ventilator’, the doctors will agree and they know that means the child will die,” he says.“I think they’re doing what I’m suggesting, it’s just they’re doing it by withdrawing a treatment rather than by taking some active measures.”Singer was due to arrive in New Zealand in June to discuss his views that promised to teach “how to apply ethics to your everyday life”.However, his event was cancelled by the venue after complaints were made.“I was very surprised the venue cancelled the booking without even checking with me about the nature of the complaints that were being made. It seems like a knee-jerk response. Somebody complains, you cancel the speaker. It seems like a pretty strange way to run a venue,” he says.Before the cancellation, New Zealand’s disabled community was outraged he was scheduled to visit.READ MORE: https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/07/controversial-philosopher-peter-singer-defends-his-infanticide-views.htmlKeep up with family issues in NZ.

  • Coronavirus: Mikel terminates Trabzonspor contract

    first_imgRelatedPosts Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Chelsea sink Brighton to make winning start Former Chelsea midfielder Jon Obi Mikel has left Turkish club Trabzonspor because games in the country are still going ahead. Mikel, who made 368 appearances for Chelsea between 2006 and 2017, said he did not feel comfortable with top-flight games in Turkey being played despite the coronavirus pandemic. The Super Lig team confirmed in a statement that the Nigerian, who joined them last year and had a contract until May 2021, had left by mutual consent. “There is more to life than football,” the 32-year-old had said on Instagram on Saturday. “I do not feel comfortable and don’t want to play football in this situation. Everyone should be home with their families and loved ones in this critical time. “Season should be cancelled as the world is facing such turbulent times.” Five of the most prominent leagues in Europe – England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France – as well as the Champions League and Europa League, have all been suspended, but Turkish league games are going ahead without fans present. The virus, which has infected more than 190,000 people and killed more than 7,500 around the world, has also forced the postponement of the European Championship and Copa America. It has also affected a host of other international sporting events.Tags: ChelseaJohn Obi MikelTrabzonsporlast_img read more

  • Pizzasegola provides Italian spark for USC

    first_imgFamily, trust and volleyball keep native Italian Alice Pizzasegola motivated and focused on the court.Pizzasegola, an international relations major from Rivergaro, Italy, is the junior setter on the women’s volleyball team.For Pizzasegola, college is a world away from her hometown. Coming from a town with just fewer than 7,000 people, Pizzasegola had to adjust to a university with more than 40,000 students. She also moved halfway across the world — just over 6,000 miles — to a place she had never been.For most students, touring his or her future college is a must, but Pizzasegola’s only experience with USC came from many internet searches.“I didn’t really know what to expect,” she said. “But I think I made the best choice I could ever make.”Despite being in a foreign place for college, Pizzasegola was able to find comfort in former setter Hayley Crone, who graduated last year. When Pizzasegola was a freshman, Crone was a junior. Crone served as a mentor to her both on and off the court“She was amazing to me,” Pizzasegola said. “She was like my big sister.”Now a junior herself, Pizzasegola is doing the same with freshman setter Baylee Johnson. She sees Johnson as strong and hopes she’s giving her what’s essential.“I’ll always be here for her if she needs anything,” Pizzasegola said.As an upperclassman, Pizzasegola wants to be more than just a mentor to her fellow setter; she wants to be the teammate that everyone can trust.“If [they] have a problem, [they] can come talk to me,” she said. “I really like listening to people.”Pizzasegola sees this year’s team as a family. The team’s cohesiveness has helped bring them success.Before every match, the setter has a specific moment when she is standing with her team on the court while the national anthem plays. She looks up at the American flag and her teammates around her and remembers why she is here. She said it serves as her motivation to leave everything out on the court.“I should give my teammates, my family and myself the best effort to get what I want,” Pizzasegola said. “So I might as well just try as hard as I can.”It’s more than just the team’s newfound motivation that is helping their success. Pizzasegola pointed out that the high level of trust between her teammates on the court is what fuels their dominance.“It’s just like a circle of trust,” she said. “If I don’t trust my passer and don’t trust my hitter, I am not going to give my best set.”By the way that Pizzasegola values her relationships and trust with her teammates, it’s no surprise  how much she values her actual family as well.Being so far from home, she rarely gets to see her family. She gets to travel back home twice a year: for Christmas after the season is over and in the spring after finals. Her parents, Tiziano and Roberta Pizzasegola, also have the chance to come out and see their daughter during the season.Her dad comes out during Thanksgiving to spend the holiday with her. Her mom is a teacher, making it a bit harder for her to come out and watch her daughter, but she still finds the time.She also has an older brother, Filippo. He was able to come out and visit her last spring for Pizzasegola’s birthday. He ended up liking USC so much that he said he could see himself coming out here to study for a master’s.Away from the court, Pizzasegola loves spending her free time at the beach.“I just love the water, it makes me really calm, relaxed and quiet,” she said.From a young age, being in the water was a part of Pizzasegola’s life.“My mom just threw me into the water,” Pizzasegola said. “I loved staying in.”Though she doesn’t get many chances to get back in the pool — especially during the season — Pizzasegola was able to last spring. After practices, she would spend about 30 minutes swimming in the pool.Around the age of 10, Pizzasegola wanted to play a sport where she could play on a team. And volleyball provided that for her.“I realized I think I need to play with someone,” she said.Though she continued to grow with volleyball, playing in the U.S. wasn’t something that Pizzasegola thought about until she met a volleyball player who went to Stanford and played professionally in Italy.“It was really unexpected,” Pizzasegola said. “But what I found was really amazing.”In her three years at USC, she’s come to learn the differences between Italian and American volleyball. In the U.S. — especially at USC — volleyball is treated as more than just a sport. Coaches place a greater emphasis on making sure their players are growing academically and as people rather than just in volleyball techniques. Pizzasegola values these contrasts.“They’re trying to give you an education,” Pizzasegola said. “Not just in school,but for life.”She said what really made her love playing volleyball at USC was the feeling that she wasn’t just playing for herself, but for her teammates and the Trojan Family.“This feeling of spirit that you’re playing for your college,” Pizzasegola said. “It’s just like a big family.”Pizzasegola has created some of her fondest memories during her time at USC, and with the team recently earning its top national rankings, she has her sights set high for both herself and her teammates.“I know what being No. 1 means,” Pizzasegola said. “It’s probably the best feeling I’ve ever had volleyball-wise.”Individually, she wants to keep improving and learning to read the game better. She believes her team can go quite far this season.“We want to win the conference first,” Pizzasegola said. “Then the National Championship second.”Though this team has the potential to have a big season, they’re taking it one point at a time. They’re focused on always staying on top of their game.“It’s always fun in practice,” Pizzasegola. “We are always competing.”The women’s volleyball team will next head out on the road to Colorado and Utah, hoping to keep their undefeated record and top ranking intact.last_img read more

  • Top five sports moments this semester

    first_imgThe University of Wisconsin Athletic Department had a lot to celebrate this semester, even if none of those involved a championship trophy. From last-second shots to prestigious awards, this Badger class produced several memorable moments that will stand the test of timeHere is The Badger Herald’s list of the top five moments from this semester of UW athletics.1. Men’s basketball: Zac Showalter hits a game-tying three as time expires against FloridaHayes: Confused by the Badgers’ 8-seed draw? You’re not aloneAnd the No. 8 seed in the East Region goes to … AP No. 25 Wisconsin? To the surprise of Read…Down seven with only minutes left in their Sweet 16 matchup with the Florida Gators, the Wisconsin Badgers refused to panic and came back in nothing short of a miracle. After Bronson Koenig brought them back from the brink to a 3-point deficit with only seconds to go, he pulled up limp and was clearly in no shape to shoot a basketball.Head coach Greg Gard turned to probably the only other reliable shooter on the team, senior guard Zac Showalter, asking him to do the impossible. Showalter responded with one of the most memorable moments of the 2017 tournament, much like Koenig had done the year before, hitting a three as time expired and turning to Aaron Rodgers in the crowd with the patented “discount-double check”.2. Volleyball: Lauren Carlini wins Sullivan AwardCarlini brings home UW’s first Sullivan AwardIt’s official: University of Wisconsin volleyball’s graduating senior Lauren Carlini won the AAU James E. Sullivan Award Tuesday night in Read…Despite falling short of her championship dreams, Lauren Carlini achieved nothing short of history this semester, going to her fourth NCAA quarterfinals and winning the prestigious Sullivan Award. The award is given to the best amateur athlete and Carlini became not only the first Badger, but first volleyball player to ever win it.The only other Wisconsin legend to even be invited to the finalist ceremony was football player and Heisman winner Ron Dayne in 2000. Setting numerous Badger volleyball records, Carlini had an unstoppable career and season in Madison, capping it off in the best way possible.3. Men’s basketball: Badgers topple top seed Villanova to reach fourth straight Sweet 16Men’s basketball: Badgers face uncertainty after losing four star seniorsThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team is coming off a year where they made it to the Sweet 16 Read…Back to men’s basketball, the Badgers wouldn’t have even reached the Sweet 16 if it hadn’t been for their upset in the first round against the No. 1 overall seed, the Villanova Wildcats. Reminiscent of the team’s historic win over Kentucky in the 2015 Final Four and the Round of 32 win over No. 2 seed Xavier a year ago, the win was nothing short of Wisconsin greatness.Despite getting put in a tough situation by the NCAA tournament committee, the Badgers made the best of it and almost put themselves in place to make a run at a third straight Final Four. The gritty win against the Wildcats cemented Wisconsin as one of the top teams in the country and was a silver lining in a relatively disappointing end against Florida.4. Football: Wisconsin takes home Cotton Bowl against Western MichiganFootball: Badgers sink Broncos 24-16 in Cotton BowlWhile the loss to Penn State University in the Big Ten Championship game still looms large for the Badger faithful, Read…Despite an unfortunate collapse in the Big Ten Championship game against Penn State, No. 8 Wisconsin had a chip on their shoulder going into the Cotton Bowl in early January. While most picked Western Michigan to pull the upset on a downtrodden Badger squad, UW went to work like they always do and pulled an impressive, all-around performance to their first New Years Six Bowl win since 2000.Now 2-0 in bowl games in his first two years, head coach Paul Chryst is quickly cementing himself as one of the most consistent coaches in the Big Ten and the country. The solid play against Western Michigan proved Chryst’s ability to calm down his team and was a good sign for a growing program going forward.5. Women’s hockey: Badgers reach NCAA championship for first game since 2011-12Women’s hockey: Badgers fall short but leave impressive legacyEven though the season came to a bitter end, the University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team still has so much Read…The women’s hockey team would’ve been higher on this list if they had won just one more game to finish off their historic season, but to no avail. The senior-filled Badger squad was No. 1 in the NCAA rankings from week one to the final game, but couldn’t finish off the job against No. 2 Clarkson in the Championship.Despite ending in a tough light, The Championship game had alluded the Badgers for five seasons until this one. Relying on probably the best roster the program has ever had, Wisconsin put up a dominant performance to beat No. 4 Boston College in The Frozen Four and play for their fifth National Championship.last_img read more

  • UCL Review: Basel Stun United; Barcelona Secure Last 16 Spot

    first_imgManchester United suffered their first loss in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) this season with a 1-0 defeat at Swiss champions FC Basel.Swiss international Michael Lang was the hero for the hosts as he netted the only goal of the game with just a minute left on the clock to condemn Jose Mourinho’s men to their first loss in the competition.The surprising defeat means Manchester United will have to wait till their last game in Group A to secure a last 16 spot. A draw at home to CSKA Moscow will guarantee qualification to the first knockout stage as group winners while a win for Basel against Benfica in Portugal will also be enough for a last 16 spot.5-time European Barcelona didn’t have much problems in their own game against Juventus in Turin as both sides played out a goalless draw.The result meant Barcelona qualify for the first knockout stage as Group D winners with Juventus needing a win from their last group game against Greek champions Olympiacos to guarantee last 16 qualification.In the other group game, Sporting Lisbon boosted their chances of securing a last 16 spot with a 3-1 win over the aforementioned Olympiacos. The Portuguese side need to beat Barcelona at the Nou Camp to have any chance.In Group C, Antoine Griezmann and Kevin Gameiro scored in the second half to give Atletico Madrid a 2-0 win over AS Roma. The Italians finished the game with 10 men after Bruno Peres was sent off in the second half.Roma now need to beat lowly Qarabag in their last group game while Atletico will need to beat Chelsea to have any chance of making it to the first knockout stage.Matchday 5 Results:Group AFC Basel 1-0 Manchester UnitedCSKA Moscow 2-0 BenficaGroup BPSG 7-1 CelticAnderlecht 1-2 Bayern MunichGroup CAtletico Madrid 2-0 AS RomaQarabag 0-4 ChelseaGroup DJuventus 0-0 BarcelonaSporting Lisbon 3-1 Olympiacos RelatedUCL Review: Former Champions United, Juventus Secure Last 16 SpotsDecember 6, 2017In “Europe”Who Could The Premier League Teams Draw in The Next Round?December 7, 2017In “Europe”UCL: Teams Battle for Round of 16 and Europa League Spot on Final MatchdayDecember 12, 2018In “Europa League”last_img read more

  • There’s a Betting on Esports Conference in London this September…

    first_imgHow should a bookmaker offer esports markets? What are the challenges involved in doing so? From tussles with the game developers who own the IP, to issues with data, stream delays, the diverse and complex communities that exist under the umbrella term of esports, to the opportunity for casinos, self-titled ‘esports experts’, skins betting, ambassadors and more, it’s fair to say it’s something of a minefield.For the first time this September, SBC’s Betting on Sports Conference will have a dedicated Betting on Esports Conference running alongside the main agenda. More details are available here. Included in the Betting on Esports programme are:A dedicated esports betting exhibition space featuring eight companies20+ high profile industry speakers sharing their knowledge and opinionsSix panel sessions discussing the latest trends in esports bettingTwo high quality networking parties in the eveningThe panels will take place over the 13-14 September at Kensington Olympia Conference Centre  in London. Tickets are currently available at a 50% discount until June 15th.  Click here to take advantage of this offer.Las Vegas-based Millennial Esports has come on board as the Platinum Sponsor of Betting on Esports. The company runs a dedicated esports venue in downtown Vegas at the Neonopolis and is involved elsewhere in the space; for example it recently acquired Spanish data analytics firm Stream Hatchet. Alex Igelman, Millennial EsportsMillennial Esports’ CEO Alex Igelman said this regarding Betting on Esports: “With Nevada’s recent passage of SB 240, esports betting will soon be a common occurrence in Nevada sportsbooks. We are looking forward to Nevada’s continuing leadership in the space and we expect the State’s involvement to legitimise esports betting and set the standard for integrity and  oversight of esports events.“In the same token, conferences like ‘Betting on Esports’ are leading the way in educating the industry on the unique challenges and opportunities for all those seeking entry in the space. We are proud to be an integral part of this.”Speakers confirmed to date include Igelman, Pinnacle Head of Sportsbook Marco Blume, Unikrn CEO and Founder Rahul Sood, Esports Pools (ESP) CEO Scott Burton, GameCo CEO Blaine Graboyes, ESL UK Managing Director James Dean, Squawka Co-Founder Sanjit Atwal, Danske Spil Esports Manager Kasper Nemeth and PVP.ME CMO Michael Doyle. This conference is a move away from the now plentiful esports business conferences, and focuses purely on the opportunities that exist around the convergence of esports and gambling. Las Vegas, and land based casinos at large, stand to benefit from this opportunity offered by esports; whether that’s as a tournament venue or by offering a different type of product such as GameCo’s VGMs. GameCo CEO Blaine Graboyes will be speaking on the casinos panel, and will also be available to chat to with a stand in the exhibition area. Millennial is amongst the leaders in the space in Vegas in regards to hosting esports events; and the company has already hosted tournaments for Call of Duty and Madden. Away from casinos, there are now countless online bookmakers offering esports markets, but the quality of these offerings vary greatly. The likes of Betway for instance are one to follow when it comes to engaging with the communities of fans that are potential customers. One look at the Betway Esports Twitter and its content portal will show this, and moreover the firm has delivered one of the top bookmaker-team sponsorships in esports so far via its deal with NiP. Other dedicated services such as Unikrn are making interesting moves, and the Seattle based firm (which has a deal in place with Tabcorp), recently acquired LEET.gg as it appears set to diversify and enter the casino space too. Pinnacle meanwhile continue to offer esports markets, as they have done since 2010, and are currently seeking an Esports Marketing Manager to join their London office.With the esports betting space at something of a crossroads right now, the Betting on Esports Conference provides the perfect platform for the two elements of the business to come together and discuss trends and ambitions. For instance unlicensed skins betting sites continue to operate, whilst the likes of ESIC (Esports Integrity Coalition) are doing good work to combat this and unite the stakeholders in the regulated space. The likes of Betway, Esportspools (ESP), Pinnacle, GameCo, Unikrn, ESL, DreamHack and more are partners. -Betting on Esports is taking place as an event within the wider betting on Sports Conference. All ticketed attendees will gain full access to both shows.-  Disclaimer: As a part of SBC Global, Esports Insider is an organiser of the Betting on Esports conference-Sign up to our newsletter for a weekly roundup of the latest news from the esports industry-last_img read more

  • Bears waive Chris Blewitt, leaving number of kickers at 2

    first_img Melvin Gordon seeking new deal from Chargers The Bears signed Blewitt, who played four seasons at the University of Pittsburgh, following a group tryout in March after Bears general manager Ryan Pace indicated Cody Parkey’s contract would be terminated.Parkey infamously double-doinked a 42-yard field goal during the wild-card round and ended Chicago’s postseason run with a 16-15 loss to the Eagles in front of a stunned home crowd.He was later released when the new league year began on March 13. Chris Blewitt, well.. blew it.The Bears on Wednesday announced they have released the 24-year-old kicker. Jadeveon Clowney still not close on a deal with Texans Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey says he isn’t getting contract extension this year “I mean, that’s about as real as it gets,” Nagy said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “They were 0-for-3 out there. For today, we can’t have that. We are going to figure this thing out. But 0-for-3 today, no good.” The move leaves Chicago with just two kicking candidates on the roster: Eddy Piñeiro and Elliott Fry.#Bears roster update:We have waived kicker Chris Blewitt.— Chicago Bears (@BearsPR) June 12, 2019Bears coach Matt Nagy was visibly frustrated Tuesday as all three kickers missed a 42-yarder during the opening practice of mandatory minicamp.
