Activists deliver letter to Nikias in support of immigrants

first_imgStudents gathered around Tommy Trojan on Thursday to deliver a letter to President C. L. Max Nikias demanding increased protections and resources for undocumented and international students.In the wake of White House policies targeting immigrants, the students came together as members of OurCampus, an umbrella organization of student clubs looking to encourage inclusion on campus.“It’s really just about connecting people on campus who are in some way feeling excluded or marginalized,” said Henry Mattei, a junior majoring  environmental sciences and economics and an organizer for OurCampus. “The goal of it is to make our campus a more inclusive place.”The letter asks for physical and financial support for undocumented and international students. Mattei said that without support from the University, students are vulnerable to the labor exploitation and the loss of financial aid. In response, the letter requests a fund for affected students, along with other commitments to keep students secure.The action comes off the heels of a similar letter sent by USC faculty to the administration with policy recommendations to better support students under the Trump administration.Many felt that the University’s commitment to its international and undocumented students has been lukewarm. “The University has given out a lot of really vague statements on the value of diversity,” said Noha Ayoub, a sophomore majoring in law, history and culture. “We want complete support from the University in this regard.”Students entered Bovard Auditorium and delivered the letter to the office of Nikias. The letter was taken by an administrator who agreed to deliver it to Nikias. The administrator was unable to comment about the letter.Students also visited the office of Provost Michael Quick. There, Mattei spoke with Quick’s assistant about the letter. “The response was very limited,” Mattei said.Despite the lack of immediate action from the administrations, students are still optimistic. “It might not be the final thing you have to do, but it’s a step in the right direction,” said Julian Turner, a sophomore studying industrial and systems engineering. “It’s opened doors that weren’t open before.”last_img read more

Angels’ Andrelton Simmons hurts shoulder on diving play

first_imgMESA, Ariz. — Andrelton Simmons was diagnosed with a strained left shoulder after undergoing an MRI exam on Thursday night, according to the Angels, who characterized Simmons as “day to day.”The news comes as a relief for the team after Simmons was hurt diving for a ball in Thursday afternoon’s game against the Oakland A’s. Simmons came out of the game with a trainer, but shortly after the game Manager Mike Scioscia said the team was optimistic.“I think as he came out of the game and left here, he gave us a feeling he’s fine,” Manager Mike Scioscia said before the MRI. “We’re definitely going to be cautious.”The Angels’ Gold Glove shortstop dove to his right and rolled over on his shoulder trying to get a ground ball in the fifth inning.

Attorney: Ronaldo rape report documents altered, fabricated

first_imgFILE – In this Oct. 6, 2018, file photo, Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo warms up prior to a soccer match against Udinese, in Udine, Italy. Ronaldo’s new Las Vegas lawyer is calling documents cited in media reports about a woman’s claim that he raped her in 2009 “complete fabrications,” and says the encounter was consensual. (AP Photo/Antonio Calanni, file)LAS VEGAS— Cristiano Ronaldo’s new Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer went on the attack Wednesday, saying documents cited in media reports about a rape claim against the soccer star were “complete fabrications” and the encounter was consensual.In a statement , attorney Peter S. Christiansen blamed reports about the 2009 encounter on electronic data leaks of documents that he said were stolen by a hacker from law firms and other entities in Europe and then put up for sale.ADVERTISEMENT Ronaldo “is accustomed to being the subject of press attention that goes along with being famous,” Christiansen said.But the statement called it “absolutely deplorable that any media outlet would support or advance such an elaborate and deliberate defamation campaign based on stolen, easily manipulated digital documents.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThe statement acknowledged that Ronaldo and Kathryn Mayorga reached a non-disclosure agreement in 2010 after their encounter in Las Vegas.Mayorga’s attorneys, Leslie Stovall and Larissa Drohobyczer, did not immediately respond to telephone, email and text messages. Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Christiansen declined to comment further.Drohobyczer said previously that Mayorga never wanted her name made public but became worried that she would be identified after a 2017 media report apparently referred to the encounter at the Palms Hotel and Casino.In August, her attorneys asked Las Vegas police to reopen an investigation that had been closed in 2009 without charges.The lawyers followed with the lawsuit about two weeks ago.Police have refused to release documents, citing the reopened case, and have not commented about progress in the investigation.Stovall and Drohobyczer have said a Las Vegas psychiatrist diagnosed Mayorga with post-traumatic stress and depression “caused by Cristiano Ronaldo’s sexual assault in 2009.”The attorneys said she was “emotionally fragile,” out of the country and would not be interviewed by media.The psychiatrist, Norton Roitman, has testified numerous times as an expert witness in state court in Las Vegas. His office issued a statement to The Associated Press saying his role in the case does not permit him to publicly comment.Christiansen replaced high-profile criminal defense attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld as Ronaldo’s legal representative in Las Vegas.Ronaldo’s attorney in Berlin, Christian Schertz, has refused comment about the rape allegation. He threatened to sue after the German magazine Der Spiegel reported on the lawsuit, saying the article violated Ronaldo’s personal rights. Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Knicks intent on rebuilding and not afraid to say it Ronaldo, 33, of Portugal, plays for the Italian club Juventus and his home country’s national team. Some sponsors, including Nike and video game maker EA Sports, have expressed concern about the rape allegation.Mayorga, 34, a former model, filed a lawsuit on Sept. 27 in Nevada acknowledging that she accepted $375,000 to keep quiet about the encounter with Ronaldo in a hotel penthouse.The lawsuit seeks to void the agreement that her lawyers say she signed under pressure from “fixers” trying to protect the reputation of Ronaldo. The lawsuit also seeks monetary damages of at least $200,000.“Given the breach of that agreement by the other side and the inflammatory accusations that have been lodged in the ensuing days, Mr. Ronaldo feels compelled to no longer stand silent,” Christiansen said in his statement.“To absolve any doubt, Mr. Ronaldo has always maintained, as he does today, that what occurred in 2009 in Las Vegas was consensual in nature,” it said. “The documents which purportedly contain statements by Mr. Ronaldo and have been reported in the media are complete fabrications.”ADVERTISEMENT Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal LATEST STORIEScenter_img Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum MOST READ Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Telephone calls to Der Spiegel on Wednesday went to voicemail.The Associated Press does not generally name people who say they are victims of sex crimes, but Mayorga gave consent through her lawyers to make her name public.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
