UI lecturers support #PapuanLivesMatter discussion, criticize university’s disavowal

first_imgShe further argued that the discussion did not have a “strong enough scientific foundation” to be considered a proper academic forum.UI’s disavowal of the discussion has since drawn criticism on social media, with many saying that the state university – widely considered the best in the country – was bowing to political pressures and had failed to stand up for academic freedom.Shofwan Al-Banna, a member of the UI Lecturers Alliance representing the university’s international relations department, said that the university’s statement reflected sentiments that directly contradicted UI’s values as an educational institution.“We agree that universities must serve as a place where diverse ideas can be freely expressed, respected and, ultimately, protected,” he told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.Shofwan said the university’s disavowal of the discussion was “an exaggeration” on the part of the rectorate board, and that it might well discourage students from engaging in substantial conversations.“We never wanted to interfere in university bureaucracy. But we felt that it was now crucial for us [to speak up] because the very essence of any university is to enable the search for scientific truths,” he told the Post, adding that the alliance had been planning a series of discussions on the topic of academic freedom at universities.Editor’s note: An earlier version of this article contained an error. Veronica Koman is not a lawyer for Amnesty International Australia.Topics : The University of Indonesia (UI) Lecturers Alliance has conveyed its support for a discussion on racism against Papuans that was previously disavowed by the university rectorate.In a statement issued on Monday, the alliance praised the university’s Student Executive Body (BEM UI) for organizing the public discussion as it fostered a spirit of free speech among university academics.The alliance also called on the university’s academic society to remain consistent in supporting student endeavors to seek scientific truths in accordance with the 2012 Higher Education Law. “We also urge UI as an educational institution to assume a more active role in disseminating diverse ideas so as to avoid the production of a single [version of the] truth,” the alliance stated.Held on Saturday and titled “#PapuanLivesMatter: Racism in the Legal System in Papua”, the discussion largely revolved around the prosecution of seven Papuan activists charged with treason for their involvement in antiracism protests in Jayapura, Papua, in August 2019.Former Papuan prisoner Sayang Mandabayan, Papuan human rights lawyer Gustaf Kawer and Indonesian human rights lawyer Veronica Koman, were invited as speakers for the discussion.In UI’s statement dated June 6, university spokesperson Amelita Lusia said BEM UI had organized the discussion “without proper preparation and consideration” and that it had invited “inappropriate speakers”.last_img read more

Cammell Laird Splashes New RoRo Ship for Red Funnel

first_imgBritish shipbuilder Cammell Laird has launched a new GBP 10 million (USD 13.03 million) ferry it has built for Isle of Wight ferry operator Red Funnel.The Red Kestrel, a new freight-only RoRo vessel, will operate between Southampton and Isle of Wight.The 1,070 gross ton newbuild will officially join the fleet on arrival in Southampton, and enter service in May 2019, following a trials and training period.The launch event marks the debut of Red Funnel’s first dedicated RoRo freight ship since the company’s inception.“We are delighted by today’s launch of Red Kestrel…We’re thrilled that not only will Red Kestrel increase our total capacity and enhance convenience for our cross-Solent customers but we also take tremendous pride in supporting the revival of world-class shipbuilding in this country,” Fran Collins, CEO of Red Funnel, commented.“We are especially proud to be working for a British ferry company, winning the contract against international competition,” Tony Graham, Cammell Laird Chief Operating Officer, said, adding that the shipyard sees a big market in ferry repair, conversion and newbuild.Red Kestrel is Red Funnel’s first ship to be designed for freight traffic. As a freight vessel, it is limited to 12 passengers and constructed specifically to provide additional year-round freight capacity for Red Funnel’s Southampton-East Cowes route, which currently handles 53% of all freight movements across the Solent.At 74 meters in length, the newbuild will provide 265 lane meters of roll-on/roll-off freight capacity.To minimize the environmental footprint, the hull shape has been designed specifically to reduce wash and a propulsion package has been selected to make the vessel highly fuel efficient whilst meeting the latest Tier III emission regulations. The use of azimuth thrusters will also make the ship very maneuverable, according to Cammell Laird.The crossing time of 55-60 minutes will be identical to Red Funnel’s existing Raptor class RoPax ships and Red Kestrel will use the same berths in Southampton and East Cowes.Based in the UK port of Southampton, Red Funnel carries 2.3 million passengers and over 800,000 vehicles on its ferry route between the UK port of Southampton and East Cowes and 1.1 million passengers between Southampton and West Cowes on its Red Jet Hi-Speed service.last_img read more

Young St. John’s heating up after early-season struggles

first_imgSt. John’s head coach Steve Lavin said he’s been a “kindergarten cop” at many points this season.Only one upperclassman plays more than five minutes per game for the Red Storm. The top nine players in points and minutes per game are freshmen or sophomores. Lavin’s team is one of the youngest in the country, and the level of play in the Big East has been a challenging adjustment.“I expected this coming into the year, for it to be the most challenging season of my career,” Lavin said in the Big East coaches’ teleconference on Thursday. “When you’re as young as we are and you don’t have a player on the roster that’s ever been in the postseason, it just makes it difficult.”St. John’s lost three of its first four Big East contests. The Red Storm (13-7, 5-3 Big East) has found its stride, though, winning four straight conference games, including a matchup with then-No. 20 Notre Dame on Jan. 15. SJU now sits tied for third in the Big East.While St. John’s has struggled at points this season, Lavin enjoys watching the youthful, high-energy players develop. As they overcome early-season jitters, the inexperienced Red Storm players are leading a surge in the Big East.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It’s rewarding to see the breakthroughs, to see the development both individually and certain players and then collectively as a group,” Lavin said.SJU’s development has come slowly this season. Lavin said the Red Storm came into the year with one of the youngest teams in school history. Only four upperclassmen are on the roster, and none of them receive regular playing time in Lavin’s rotation.That led to growing pains for the young and talented St. John’s roster – starting with nonconference play.Lavin watched his team squander a 17-point lead in a Dec. 21 game against North Carolina Asheville. The 72-65 loss included an 11-0 run by the Bulldogs.The Red Storm’s next loss, in the Big East opener at Villanova on Jan. 2, was another display of youthful inconsistency, Lavin said.Nursing a three-point lead with 1:31 remaining in regulation, St. John’s sophomore Amir Garrett fouled Villanova’s Darrun Hilliard behind the 3-point line. Hilliard made all three free throws, helping send the game into overtime. The Wildcats eventually won 98-86.Since the Red Storm suffered a 67-51 loss to Georgetown on Jan. 12, Big East play has largely turned around for St. John’s. Freshman and sophomore players that have kept the team afloat all season have been the driving force behind the Red Storm’s recent winning streak.Sophomore D’Angelo Harrison and freshman JaKarr Sampson lead the team in scoring, averaging 19.8 and 14.3 points per game, respectively. Harrison has made definitive plays in crucial moments, including a block in the waning moments against Notre Dame and clutch free throws at the end of Sunday’s win against Seton Hall.“That’s just our captain stepping up. We’re blessed to have him in those kinds of tight situations,” sophomore Sir’Dominic Pointer said Sunday in a St. John’s Athletics press release.Freshman Jamal Branch has also contributed key minutes for St. John’s. Garrett and Pointer, as well as fellow sophomore Phil Greene IV, play more than 20 minutes per game for the Red Storm.“I’m just getting used to the Big East,” Sampson said to St. John’s Athletics after a win over DePaul on Jan. 19. “That’s my goal as a freshman.”Growing pains are still part of the young team’s identity, regardless of its recent success.As Big East play becomes even more brutal, Lavin is anticipating the breakthrough turning into consistency. He’s happy with how far his team has come this season.“I think the future is bright,” Lavin said. “Whether it’s this year or next year, I’m pleased with the progress of our program.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 29, 2013 at 11:34 pm Contact Jacob: jspramuk@syr.edulast_img read more

LOST IN THE MOMENT: Familiar poor shooting dooms Orange 61-56 in Final Four loss to Michigan

first_img Published on April 6, 2013 at 10:17 pm Contact Chris: cjiseman@syr.edu | @chris_iseman ATLANTA — Like he had done so often during Syracuse’s late-season struggles, Brandon Triche stood in front of his locker just minutes after a loss, trying to explain how the Orange’s offense disappeared.Except this time, it was in the Final Four. The same offense — and the same shooters — that had sent Syracuse on a surge through the NCAA Tournament became sporadic once again with a trip to the national championship on the line.While Triche spoke, his teammates scattered around the locker room sat in stunned silence. There was no future game to turn their attention to. There was no hope the offense could be corrected. The season was over.“The one thing that got us losing four or five games in a row and everybody losing faith,” Triche said, “is the reason why we lost the game today.”After the incredible turnaround that included a run to the Final Four, one that came after finishing the regular season 1-4, Syracuse’s season came to a crashing end on Saturday with a 61-56 loss to Michigan in the NCAA Tournament semifinals in front of a Georgia Dome crowd of 75,350 fans. The same problem that made a run to the Final Four seem like a pipedream crept back up once again, as the Orange struggled to hit the shots it needed.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textUltimately, it cost Syracuse its season and a trip to the national championship.The Orange shot 41.8 percent for the game, including a paltry 21.4 percent clip from the arc. Just two players — Triche and C.J. Fair — managed to score in double digits. James Southerland, Syracuse’s most reliable shooter, went 2-of-9 from the field and 1-of-5 from the perimeter. The same shots he swished during his record-breaking Big East tournament performance clanked off the rim.Michigan wasn’t any better. The Wolverines shot 39.6 percent from the field. But it was the outside shooting that helped push Michigan on to the national championship.“They made eight 3s and we made three,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “That’s the difference in the game when you really look at it.”Fittingly, Michigan’s first points of the game came when Tim Hardaway Jr. drilled a 3 from up top. Syracuse didn’t hit its first 3-pointer until the 12:43 mark of the first half when Fair knocked one down from the top of the key.The Orange finished the game with only three 3-pointers — one each from Fair, Southerland and Trevor Cooney, and Southerland’s didn’t come until there were only 41 seconds left in the game.What made the night even more frustrating for Syracuse was that two players who did the most damage from the arc for Michigan were mostly unknown bench players overshadowed by the Wolverines’ star-studded starting lineup.Caris LeVert and Michael Albrecht each hit two 3-pointers. LeVert hadn’t hit a 3 in the tournament, while Albrecht had three. Syracuse paid plenty of attention to Trey Burke, Glenn Robinson III and Hardaway. Nik Stauskas, who came into the game shooting 44.9 percent from the arc and was averaging 11.5 points per game, didn’t score a single point on Saturday.“They had players come off the bench and knock down shots,” SU point guard Michael Carter-Williams said. “I didn’t even know who they were, to be honest. … They played with a lot of heart.”Syracuse had players in its starting lineup who are capable of delivering daggers. Southerland had seven 3-pointers in Syracuse’s four previous tournament games. Triche and Carter-Williams had each hit four.On Saturday, they lost that rhythm from the arc. Reminiscent of those lackluster offensive performances during the regular season, they couldn’t jumpstart an offense that suddenly lost its confidence.“Even when we were coming back, our offense still wasn’t really clicking,” Triche said. “I remember at one point, it was 41 to 45, we had the ball three possessions and still didn’t get it there.”Syracuse made a late charge. It came to within one point. A trip to the championship was right there.The Orange had 15 seconds to tie the game. Both Triche and Carter-Williams were on the bench after they each fouled out. That left Cooney to run the point. He dribbled the ball up the court and drove the lane for a runner, but his shot clanked off the rim.Another critical miss for Syracuse.Michigan grabbed the rebound, leading to a fast-break dunk by Jordan Morgan that sealed the win for the Wolverines. Michigan fans erupted. Syracuse fans were stunned.After the game, the Orange’s players sat in the locker room with blank expressions on their faces. Carter-Williams stood in front of his locker with watery eyes, answering question after question about how Syracuse’s season could end like this.The answer wasn’t tough to find. The Orange’s offense had disappeared again.“That game is how our whole season was,” Triche said. “Especially in games we always lost.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Related Stories Gallery: Syracuse takes on Michigan in the Final Four in AtlantaCohen: Triche, Southerland leave Syracuse with mixed legaciesGallery: Louisville defeats Wichita State 72-68 to advance to championshipSubdued Marshall Street crowds require little police involvementSyracuse community reacts, reflects on SU’s fall to Michigan in the Final Fourlast_img read more

UW still unbeaten in Big Ten after shutting out MSU

first_imgContinuing their impressive unbeaten run in Big Ten play, the Wisconsin men’s soccer team defeated Michigan State 1-0 in a hard fought victory Sunday at the McClimon Complex on a windy, fall day in front of a crowd of more than 600 fans.The shutout victory solidifies Wisconsin’s (7-4-2, 3-0-0 Big Ten) hold on first place in the Big Ten. No other team in the Big Ten has won all three of its games, and only Wisconsin and Northwestern (2-0-1) remain unbeaten thus far. Michigan State, meanwhile, fell to 4-7-2 and 1-2-1 in the conference.The game was dictated by windy conditions that affected the flight of the ball throughout the game and made it difficult for either team to have a meaningful possession. As a result, for much of the first half, defenses prevailed as both teams combined for a total of only eight shots.The lone goal of the game, which came in the 33rd minute, developed from a breakaway give-and-go by senior Josh Thiermann and sophomore Chris Prince at the top of the penalty area that set Prince free behind the defense. After having the initial shot deflected by the goalkeeper, Prince ultimately found the back of the net on the rebound attempt and slotted it across the goal line.“I was just sitting on the outside, and I saw [Thiermann] come in and get the ball,” Prince said. “You know, Josh and I have worked on some of this combination stuff, and so we are getting pretty good at it and understanding each other. He just toe-poked it to me, I tried to chip the goalie, it hit off his foot and then I put it in from there.”Entering the second half, the Badgers seemed content to sit back and defend their lead, especially with the wind making it difficult for their defense to clear the ball out of their own half of the field.“Getting that goal early helped our confidence in the back. … We were able to settle down a little bit and stay composed,” sophomore defender Paul Yonga said. “I mean, we had to make them work. We were the ones with the lead, so we [knew] that we had them chasing the game in the second half.”Increased possession in the second half by the Spartans led to one of their best opportunities of the game in the 71st minute. After an interesting call by the official against sophomore goalkeeper Max Jentsch, Michigan State received an indirect free kick in the penalty area that deflected off of the defense and out of harms way.Growing frustration near the end of the game from Michigan State led to two red cards for the Spartans, one of which went to standout senior forward Rubin Bega. The remaining 10 minutes of the game resulted in relentless attack from the remaining 10 Michigan State players as they desperately tried to level the score, forcing Jentsch to make some key saves to preserve the slim lead.“When you’re at 10 men and you’re losing, there’s that feeling of ‘Oh my god, let’s kick it in front of goal,’ and there were some scary moments,” head coach John Trask said. “But I thought, overall, it was very well played by the team.”Looking ahead to their remaining three Big Ten games, the Badgers enter a three game road trip confident in their ability to win close games. Their confidence will be tested as they face their next Big Ten opponent at Northwestern Sunday, a game that could be a deciding factor in crowning the 2011 Big Ten champion.“We are 3-0 in the Big Ten now. We have had a confident start, so I think we’re looking good,” Yonga said. “We are looking to stay composed, not be too over confident, but I think we are pretty confident right now that we could beat anyone.”last_img read more

ANALYSIS: Barca need to rediscover defensive solidity

first_imgBarcelona need to rediscover the defensively solidity that has underpinned their championship charge alongside their sharp attack after an error by Gerard Pique in the drawn match against Sevilla reduced their lead to two points at the top of La Liga.Pique has looked assured and led from the back over recent months as the defence has provided the foundations for Barca’s assault on three trophies this season.The attacking trident of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez may capture the headlines but Barca’s rearguard have looked more composed and cut out the basic mistakes that led to their struggle earlier in the season and put coach Luis Enrique’s position under threat.The turnaround has been most noticeable for Pique who was dropped for below-par performances and a lack of professionalism.He has been looking more like the defensive stalwart that along with Carles Puyol gave the defensive security during Barca’s golden era with Pep Guardiola at the helm.Amply supported by either Jeremy Mathieu and Javier Mascherano the defence played their part as Barca overtook Real Madrid at the top of La Liga, swept into the quarterfinals of the Champions League and reached the final of the King’s Cup. However, against Sevilla on Saturday, facing a spirited attack they once again made mistakes and in particular an error by Pique on the halfway line led to a breakaway and the late equaliser for the Andalusians who drew 2-2.Luis Enrique was angry at the way they surrendered a two-goal lead but refused to single out any players.”When we concede I don’t like it, however it comes,” Luis Enrique told a news conference.”If it is due to a mistake then it is the same.”Midfielder Sergio Busquets also backed Pique. “It wasn’t his mistake but that of the team. It is not a case of blaming anybody,” he said.”It is disappointing to draw having been ahead but we are still leaders and on the right path.”Sevilla coach Unai Emery said before the game that this Barca side was the most similar he had seen to that of Pep Guardiola’s but they are still a long way from controlling the game as well as the team that won three La Liga titles and two Champions Leagues between 2008 and 2012.Barca need to get their mojo back.–last_img read more
