An academic grounding in the composition and social influence of music would help students become a next generation of informed performers or businesspeople, Iton hopes. He also aims to prepare a business plan for his n.e.Bodied Entertainment imprint, and to prepare for law school and the study of intellectual property and entertainment law. Founder of Black Student UnionA burgeoning entrepreneur fusing academics and entertainment while encouraging diversity and tolerance at New College of Florida, Iton is the co-founder of the college’s Black Student Union and also served as co-president of the student government during his 2016-17 term. A philosophy AOC, he excelled in the classroom, developing a series of courses on hip-hop composition and cultural education that drew praise from his faculty advisors. He successfully defended his senior thesis “Cultural Gentrification: Hip Hop and Racial Epistemologies in the United States” on Apr. 24th. As part of his thesis, he produced and directed “Sincerely, The Black Kids,” a documentary on racism in academia depicting the challenges black student government leaders experience nationwide.  The film features interviews with student leaders from Cornell, Clemson & American University who, though exceptionally talented as campus leaders, unfortunately find themselves combatting the same racism in their institutions that they were told did not exist anymore. The Black Kids The Black Kids was also produced by Shakira Refos with videographer/editor Eduardo Correa was recognized on ABC7 Sarasota – WWSB‘s Suncoast View on May 24, 2018 where Iton was hosted by Nikki Logan-Curran and Joey Panek in an in-depth television interview with the crew.While in Taiwan, Iton plans to become involved in the region’s music scene, host concerts and launch a web series on being a black American studying in Asia. “I look to involve myself in activities that will build bridges of understanding between Taiwan/Cheng Kung and the international black experience,” he said. “I see an excellent opportunity to engender a creative field capable of facilitating a fairly rare interplay between dialects in Mandarin and African American Vernacular English.”Sincerely, the Black Kids is currently in post-production and will be promoted on the national film festival scene soon.

Why Gardner Minshew might be the most interesting QB in the NFL

first_imgSo let’s go over some reasons why people like him so much.MORE: Five things to know about Gardner MinshewHe once tried to break his own hand with a hammerMore on that story here.His name is actually Gardner Minshew II with no original Gardner MinshewMinshew’s father is named Flint. There is no original Gardner Minshew, but if you look on the Jaguars’ official website, they list their new starting quarterback’s full name as Gardner Minshew II. This seems like an odd loophole in the naming system. How is this even possible? How far down the line can you create a false narrative? Could the Minshew family have named him Gardner Minshew V? If Minshew wanted to have a child and name it Gardner, does it revert back to the original, or is the child now Gardner Minshew III? I have questions.UPDATE: The Ringer was able to get to the bottom of the namesake. Turns out Minshew’s dad’s name actually is Gardner, he just goes by his middle name Flint (side note, the Jaguars’ quarterback’s middle name is also Flint). And if you’re wondering why he’s Gardner Minshew II and not Gardner Minshew Jr., well, we’ll let the original Gardner Minshew explain.Via The Lewiston Tribune:”Gardner is my mother’s maiden name, and Flint is my grandmother’s maiden name,” the elder Minshew said by phone Thursday. “And actually my wife, when he was born, that’s what she wanted to name him.”And she didn’t want him to be a Junior,” he added, “because down here in Mississippi, if you’re a Junior, you’re probably either called Junior or Bubba. So that’s why she wanted it to be II.”So now you know way too much information behind Gardner Minshew II’s name.He was almost named Beowulf insteadIn a profile of the Minshew family, The Spokesman Review talked with Minshew’s grandfather, who apparently wanted Gardner to be named Beowulf.From the Spokesman:“Beowulf is considered one of the greatest warriors because he can achieve anything and won’t let anything stop him,” Robinson told the class. “And (Gardner) said, ‘My granddaddy wanted me to be named that, because that’s what he wanted me to be.’”And if you thought a mustachioed quarterback named “Gardner Minshew” drew enough attention in 2018, just imagine the chaos that would have ensued had the Cougars’ record-setting passer been “Beowulf Minshew.” Granted, those odds were never great.“My dad wanted to name him Beowulf,” Flint Minshew verified, “and that’s about as far as that got.”We were so close to having an NFL QB named Beowulf.He apparently just catches big fish with his bare handsI done wrastled with a alligator. Tussled with a whale… #BadDude pic.twitter.com/8eKp2ZdOVt— Gardner Minshew (@GardnerMinshew5) July 9, 2019I have nothing else to add.He strips down and does exercise bandsIn a profile for The Athletic, we found out Minshew likes to exercise naked. Although the quarterback was quick to point out most times he does it in just a jockstrap, before admitting that there have been a few occasions when he is without any clothing.Yes, Gardner Minshew also does exercise bands in the locker room wearing only a jock strap, shades, and a headband. Sometimes naked, too. Sometimes Steve Spurrier even walks in on him doing it https://t.co/e2ZFwk3aOT pic.twitter.com/ir63VnKPZJ— Brian Floyd (@BrianMFloyd) September 10, 2019And while the profile in The Atheltic was written last year when Minshew was in college, the habit has followed him to the NFL.He was caught working out in a jockstrap before his first start in Week 2.Per @MikeGarafolo, #Jaguars starting QB Gardner Minshew III stretches in the pre-game locker room in nothing but a jockstrap. Again, our hero 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 15, 2019Remarkable.He’s also really smartA leak of the Wonderlic scores for the 2019 NFL Draft class shows Minshew scored a 42. There are 50 potential questions, although with time restrictions, it’d be unfair to say Minshew scored 42/50 on the test. Still, 42 is a really impressive number.He was even asked about it after the Jaguars acquired Josh Dobbs, who majored in aerospace engineering. And although this is a story about Minshew, I’d like to point out Dobbs memorized the first 45 numbers in pi. Minshew admits he’s not quite on the same level as Dobbs.Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew, who scored a 42 on the Wonderlic, says he doesn’t consider himself in the same league as new backup Josh Dobbs, who graduated from Tennessee with a degree in aerospace engineering. So where does he belong? pic.twitter.com/SULlOTcYyE— Michael DiRocco (@ESPNdirocco) September 11, 2019He’s fine sleeping on a used $10 mattressLast year, Gardner Minshew had bought a $10 mattress on Facebook Marketplace and was sneaking bottles of Crown Royal around Pullman in his jeans. Now, he is 9/9 against the Chiefs.A legend. https://t.co/CUPJ860MGz— Jayson Jenks (@JaysonJenks) September 8, 2019More tidbits from The Athletic profile.He shows no mercyHere’s Minshew just backhanding a blocked shot from a child at the Boys and Girls Club.Blocking out the haters like… ✋@GardnerMinshew5 & @TheRealMOW3 spent their day off hanging out at the @BGCNF Teen Center. pic.twitter.com/oFPVAufrfm— #DUUUVAL (@Jaguars) September 10, 2019He has his own tribute song Jaguars rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew has become somewhat of a cult figure in the NFL after just one career start.Minshew, 23, made his first his appearance in Week 1 after taking over for an injured Nick Foles. Once it was discovered Foles would miss most of the season with a fractured collarbone, all eyes went to Minshew and his incredible mustache. Minshew wowed many by completing 22 of 25 passes in Week 1, but his off-field storylines are what caused people to fall in love with him. He’s also a good quarterbackDespite all of the odd storylines surrounding Minshew, some of which sound like the start of a Chuck Norris joke, above all else, he’s good at what he does. He set all sorts of passing records at Washington State, and even finished in fifth place in the Heisman vote in his final season. He owns the Pac-12 single-season record for most passing yards (4,776), beating the mark previously held by Jared Goff.And so far as an NFL quarterback, he’s looked really good. He came in off the bench in Week 1 and won the Rookie of the Week award. He led a comeback drive in Week 2, which would have tied the game, but for some reason Jacksonville decided to go for a two-point conversion and didn’t convert.Minshew will continue to start for Jacksonville, and maybe we’ll find out some other stories about him in the mean time.last_img read more

Limerick Institute of Technology awards 57 Sports Scholarship

first_imgSports stars including Joe Canning and Jackie Tyrrell have previously received the scholarship from LIT, while current lecturers include Marcus Horan (formerly of Ireland and Munster) and Michael Fennelly (Kilkenny). Limerick Institute of Technology has awarded sports scholarships to 57 athletes from all over Ireland this academic year. LIT’s Sports Scholarship Programme has doubled in size over the last three years, and provides athletic support, focuses on individual welfare, and includes off-field mentoring and education support to its recipients.Supported by sponsors PMI, AIB and the Munster Council the LIT Sports Scholarships are set apart from others as they encourage young athletes to achieve greatness in their chosen sport, while providing a vast range of off-field supports.President of LIT, Prof Vincent Cunnane, described the scholarships as “the heart of what LIT is about – recognising our own while supporting people to be the best they can be.”“It is important to understand that these young people are part of an institution which recognises them as a member of this community.  That means valuing them in a balanced way.  Its about what happens off the field and off the track as much as on it.  It is about the whole person and putting the circumstances in place to allow them to unlock as much of their potential as possible,” he said.“In addition to financial aid, we have a number of athlete support measures built into our programme to do this.  These range from off-field mentoring to education support, sports psychology, and advice on managing issues like social media.”Congratulating the scholarship recipients Prof Cunnane added, “You’re living the dream, representing your team, your college, your county, in some cases your country, excelling at what you do. Your talent, your striving is being recognised and supported. Here at LIT we think it is important to support you and to recognise your excellence.”During the scholarship presentation ceremony at Thomond Park last week, Prof Cunnane also presented LIT graduate and the college’s former Rugby Officer – World Rugby Referee of the Year 2017, Joy Neville with the LIT Outstanding Achievement Award.“Joy will always be “one of our own”, one of our LIT community, of whom we are immensely proud. The list of your achievements is hugely impressive, but it is your commitment, determination to strive to be the best you can be, breaking down barriers and becoming a role model not only for our scholarship recipients here today, but to sports’ women and men all over Ireland that makes you outstanding,” he told the International Rugby Referee.LIT’s Sports Scholarship programme is now open for applications at lit.ie/sport .The Recipients areAIB                Christina Desmond               BoxingAIB                Peter Casey                             HurlingAIB                Oisin Kelly                              HurlingAIB                Peter Duggan                         HurlingAIB                Kevin Fitzgerald                    SoccerAIB                Christopher Sibanda            AthleticsAIB                Eoin Heavin                           SoccerAIB                Jordan Kelly                           SoccerAIB                Aran Hehir                            RugbyAIB                Eoin Bergin                           RugbyAIB                Robert Byrnes                      HurlingAIB                Paddy Delaney                     HurlingAIB                Luke Fitzgerald                    RugbyLIT                Nadine Rice                           BasketballLIT                Diarmaid Byrnes                  HurlingLIT                Shauna Ryan                         Ladies FootballLIT                Krystian Burchardt              BasketballLIT                Denise Moloney                   GymnasticsLIT                Gemma Dunican                  RugbyLIT                Rian Doody                           HurlingLIT                Sarah Carey                           CamogieLIT                Caoimhe Bourke                  CamogieLIT                Aoife Coughlan                     CamogieLIT                Cian Swaine                          FootballLIT                Megan O Mara                     Ladies FootballLIT                Shayleen McDonagh           Ladies FootballLIT                Niamh Barton                      RowingLIT                Chloe Houston                     SoccerLIT                Deborah Murphy                 CamogieLIT                Luke Moylan                         RugbyLIT                Cillian Dunne                       IWALIT                Laura O Neill                       CamogieLIT                Dylan Guiry                         FootballLIT                Kelvin Browne                     RugbyLIT                Brian Fanning                     FootballLIT                Pa Ryan                                RugbyLIT                Conor Ivors                          BoxingLIT                Adam Byrne                        FootballLIT                Keeley Lenihan                   CamogieLIT                Jenny Grace                        CamogiePMI                Matt St Amour                  BasketballPMI                Liz Falcigno                       BasketballPMI                Willie Connors                   HurlingPMI                David Reidy                        HurlingPMI                Kieran Bennett                  HurlingPMI                Ben Banaghan                   SoccerPMI                Katie Hennessey               CamogiePMI                Mark Kavanagh                HurlingPMI                Eric Killeen                        HurlingMunster Council   Ian Murray               HurlingMunster Council   Sean Ryan                HurlingMunster Council   Sinead Meagher      CamogieMunster Council   Darren Moran         HurlingMunster Council   Maeve Coffey          CamogieMunster Council   Sean Canty              FootballMunster Council   Conor O Grady      HurlingMunster Council   Jack O Dea             Adminprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

Internet of Things: Security Device Access Rights with Identity Management

first_imgThe ability to be able to control identity and access rights is a critical component for ensuring the security of devices communicating within the Internet of Things.  But Gartner says that today’s identify and access rights management (IAM) tools are inadequate for handling the scale and complexity of identity management that the IoT will bring.  Within an IoT framework, identity management will expand to include not only people, but also systems and the things that people own, share and use.Earl Perkins, research vice president at Gartner, said that “identity and access management leaders must reconsider how traditional approaches to cybersecurity and identity and access management work in a world where devices and services are so abundant, in so many different forms and positioned at so many different points within the IT ecosystem… ”Ant Allan, research VP at Gartner, said that “the Identity of Things (IDoT) requires a new taxonomy for the participants in IAM systems.  People, software that makes up systems, applications and services, and devices will all be defined as entities and all entities will have the same requirements to interact.”Earl added that “existing identity data and policy planning give IAM leaders and technology service providers (TSPs) a narrow view of entities leading to a static approach that does not consider the dynamic relationships between them. However, the concept of dynamic relationships is vital to the success of future IAM solutions. In fact, the concept of the relationship will become as important as the concept of identity is for IAM in the IDoT. It allows the IDoT to exist and become part of new responsibilities for IAM in the enterprise.”last_img read more

Courtois thinks Hazard should always play 90 mins

Article continues below Editors’ Picks Williams case shows Solskjaer isn’t holding Man Utd’s youngsters back – he’s protecting them Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Chelsea were then left without their most creative spark when chasing the game and Courtois has aired his surprise at his compatriot’s withdrawal. “I have no explanation for the substitution,” Courtois told Belgian outlet Play Sports. “I did not expect it, but it’s the manager’s choice. He’ll explain it. I can’t look into his head. “Of course, you want players like Eden 90 minutes on the pitch. He can always bring something extra.”Conte has been under pressure in recent weeks, with the Blues struggling domestically. Chelsea are currently fifth in the Premier League, two points behind fourth-placed Tottenham and 19 behind leaders Manchester City.Speaking after the defeat at Old Trafford, Conte suggested that Hazard had failed to maintain his high standards in the second half and that his withdrawal was merely a tactical decision.”No Hazard [is not injured], no,” he told a news conference. “It was a tactical decision. “You have to keep the same performance for 90 minutes, we didn’t have a great balance, and every single player has to try to work with the ball, without the ball, otherwise we lose our balance.”I think he’d finished his energy because the first half he ran a lot. The second half he started the same way, but when I see a player is a bit tired, my task is to find a different solution.”Meanwhile, Courtois was left deflated by the defeat at United, which came on the back of a 1-1 draw at home to Barcelona in the Champions League when Chelsea had also taken the lead.”After our goal, we conceded a counter-attacking goal just like last Tuesday but in the second half we had less of the ball, but even then we should never have lost this match,” he said.”If you do not do the small things well in top matches, you lose, which is what happened.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more
