‘Tremendous resilience’ observed among war-affected children

first_imgChildren traumatized by war can still go on to lead normal lives, according to Theresa Betancourt, associate professor of child health and human rights and director of the research program on children and global adversity at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.In an interview with DW.com published Aug. 21, 2016, Betancourt said that adult family members play an important role in helping children endure the trauma of living in a war zone. “The children see and experience war through the experiences of their parents,” she said, and they suffer when they see their parents suffering. But the soothing comfort provided by a parent can help them manage frightening events.Positive relationships with caregivers and community members, as well as access to school, can help protect children from developing post-traumatic stress disorder, according to Betancourt.While some children act out after experiencing trauma, Betancourt said that the majority do not. “In fact, there is often tremendous resilience observed among war-affected children, with many able to overcome trauma and lead a normal life,” she said.

B1 Block Party features Guster, Mayer Hawthorne

first_img Guster’s set lasted over an hour and concluded with a standard encore and what Guster lead singer Ryan Miller called “a real encore” where the clapping and cheering of students actually brought the band out for a few more songs. The B1 Block Party, Legends Night Club’s annual open-air event, kicked off the first weekend of the school year. Legends also brought in a Velcro wall, Euro Bungy, a photo booth, Cash Cube and rock-climbing wall for students to enjoy during the event. A Notre Dame tailgating staple, Corn Hole was set up for a little friendly competition. “There was a fun concert feel during Guster,” sophomore Emily Golden said. Live music played throughout the night, with local acts Nick Gunty and Identity Crisis opening the stage for Mayer Hawthorne and the headlining act, Guster.   With a lineup of star acts and the volume cranked all the way up, it was difficult to be on campus Saturday night and not know the B1 Block Party was happening.center_img “I don’t remember there being as many other activities besides just the concert last year, so this year’s Block Party was definitely more fun,” sophomore Stefan Hogle said. “The Euro Bungy was really fun and really tiring.”  “I’ve never heard their music before, but Guster sounded really good, and they were high-energy and fun to watch” sophomore Ben Galloway said. ND Concessions, Chick-Fil-A, Papa Murphy’s Pizza and Jimmy Johns Gourmet Sandwiches were available all night. Chick-Fil-A brought along their cow mascot who was spotted dancing around to the night’s musical acts. After Guster concluded, Notre Dame’s DJ 3J and DJ Whoo Kid of G-Unit Records lit up the turntables and gave a nightclub that lasted until 4 a.m.last_img read more

Top-ranked tussle in store for Trojans

first_imgIn collegiate sports, it is rare to find a regular-season matchup showcasing the two top teams in the country. These types of marquee matches are normally saved for primetime television or late-round tournament games.Tough test· Junior setter Riley McKibbin will help lead USC against Cal State Northridge, recently given the nation’s top ranking. – Katelynn Whitaker | Daily Trojan Though as the No. 2 USC men’s volleyball team (6-2, 4-1) travels tonight to the Metadome to face the newly-crowned No. 1 team in the land, the Cal State Northridge Matadors (8-1, 5-1), there will be no championships at stake, no ESPN camera crews and no late-night exposure. And while the final result may not leave the victor with a trophy or ticker-tape parade, no match this season has held as much importance as tonight’s showdown between these two Mountain Pacific Sports Federation conference foes.The Trojans, who previously were ranked No. 1 in the country, enter tonight’s match in Stockton, Calif. in what simply can be described as unfamiliar territory. Last Friday, they led No. 11 Pepperdine 2-1, with an 18-14 lead in the fourth set, when the wheels on what looked to be an emphatic road win came off. The Waves rattled off a 12-6 run to win the set, and then carried that momentum in to the final set, en route to a 15-10 victory.The match not only ended USC’s perfect conference record, but it stripped the team of its standing as the nation’s elite. While the team has had several statement victories over top teams including UC Irvine, Ohio State, UCLA and Long Beach State, all of their previous success means little without a victory over the Matadors — a team this group of players has had trouble with during their time at USC.“Our team hates losing as much as we enjoy winning,” senior middle blocker Hunter Current said. “We have been able to overcome pressure situations in previous matches, so we are looking to prove the same against Northridge.”While the Trojans were left searching for answers this past week, Northridge had arguably its best two performances of the season. The Matadors, behind senior leader opposite Theo Edwards and sophomore setter and assist leader Matt Stork, convincingly swept Pacific in three sets and upset previously second-ranked Stanford in a five-set stunner.CSUN will enter tonight’s 7 p.m. tussle with the Trojans in a bit of unfamiliar territory as well. The team’s 8-1 record is the best in school history — a history that has featured only one appearance in the NCAA final, back in 1993.Yet, while the chips may be stacked against the Trojans as they look to reclaim the top spot, many of the players are drawing on a motivational message they received from a guest speaker last season — former USC football head coach Pete Carroll.“He told us when you are playing a top-ranked team, a lot of guys think they have to play at a higher level to win the game,” junior setter Riley McKibbin said. “That’s when players tend to make some unreal plays but, more often than not, make mistakes.”McKibbin believes if the team can follow Carroll’s words and play consistent despite the level of competition they may be facing, the outcome will end favorably for the battle-tested Trojans.last_img read more

Crop conditions vary throughout the Peace region

first_imgThe spotty nature of recent shower activity this summer in the Peace Region has resulted in a wide variety of both forage and grain crop conditions.While last week’s B.C. Day rain storms left some Environment Canada weather stations with August 3rd records, the official total of 25 millimetres at the local airport station was well off the 1976 record of 37.3, and other areas got much less than that.Crops on the Alberta side of the border in the Grande Prairie area have been described by a Northern Lights County councillor as, “A disaster, very stressed, non-existent.”- Advertisement -He estimates hay yields are one quarter to one half of normal, and says with grain crops not faring much better consideration is being given to declaring the county an agricultural disaster area.That would make it the fourth county north and west of Edmonton to do so, but the President of the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association says it is not uniformly dry across the region.The livestock producer victims this year could be forced into unwanted herd reductions, because unlike in previous dry years, there’s little emergency feed to be had across the border.Advertisement Some ranchers there are fighting a two front war, one against the drought conditions, and the other against grasshoppers.last_img read more
