Local businesses offer discounts to students

first_imgWhile students may be aware that certain businesses offer discounts for college students, student government’s recently initiated Students for South Bend Discount Program aims to expand awareness and use of these discounts. Student body president Catherine Soler said that, in addition to requests for the ability to use Flex Points and Domer Dollars off campus, students commonly inquired about a discount program. Students expressed their desire for a discount program during this year’s Whine Week, an event through which students could voice their desires and concerns about student government programs. “We got it again at Whine Week, to get Domer Dollars and Flex Points off campus,” she said. “While that’s popular, we decided based on student opinion that we’d focus instead on an off-campus discount program, and what it’s become is the Students for South Bend Discount Program.” Student Senate Off-Campus Concerns chair Emily LeStrange said that, while the idea of a student discount program is not new, the Students for South Bend program is the first at Notre Dame that does not require the purchase of a discount booklet. “Previous student government discount initiatives have all required students to purchase a discount booklet,” she said. “We feel that this time around, a free discount program that all students are welcome to participate in encourages greater use of the program.” Soler said student participation in the program hinged on not having to go out of the way to use it. “We knew it would never work if you had to buy something to get into it, and it would never work if you had to carry around something extra,” she said. “The stipulation for joining the program is that you must be eligible for the discount just by showing ID.” Soler said students who present a Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College or Holy Cross student identification card could receive the discounts. “The way we’ve done this is to work with Holy Cross and Saint Mary’s so it’s not just a Notre Dame [program], but a college program,” she said. Many businesses were invited to apply, and there was immediately a strong response, LeStrange said. “We were able to send out over 100 invites to local businesses asking them to join the Students for South Bend program, and within the first month we have gathered about 35 participants,” LeStrange said. “All participants will receive a window decal marking their participation in the program at the start of next semester.” The group of businesses committed to the program includes restaurants like Studebagels and Main St. Grille as well as service providers like the South Bend Museum of Art and Hair Crafters Day Spa Salon. LeStrange said the focus on local businesses could help strengthen the relationship between students and the community. “I think that a stable, commercial relationship between local business and students is a crucial component of strengthening community relations,” she said. “I think that ultimately, this is a great way for Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross to bridge the gap between college students and South Bend residents that is positive and supportive of what South Bend has to offer.”last_img read more

Lecturer considers theological implications of pornography

first_imgOn Friday, 2014 alumnus Michael Bradley, current managing editor for Ethika Politika and editor of The Whole Story, discussed the effects of pornography on relationships in a lecture titled “Passionless Love, Erotic Healing” as part of the 10th Annual Edith Stein Project conference.Bradley first defined pornographic consumption and production, stating that discovering the intention behind an action is the most important part of actually understanding it. He gave the example of murder versus self-defense to illustrate his point.“Self-defense and murder, as we know, can look identical physically, and yet are radically unlike morally,” said Bradley.With this in mind, Bradley defined pornographic production as separate from the consumption of sexually explicit material.“I want to say that pornographic production is simply the production of material intended for pornographic consumption; that is, production is a function of the intentional structure of that consumption,” Bradley explained. “Every directorial decision, if you want to call them that, that goes into making pornographic material aims at providing a sexual stimulus for the viewer.”Bradley said pornographic consumption is strictly pornography used with the intent to sexually arouse. As he explained, a law enforcement official who must watch hours of child pornography in order to identify victims is not consuming porn, regardless of whether or not he or she is sexually aroused.“The actual arousal of the viewer is neither necessary nor sufficient to a proper understanding of the definition of pornographic consumption.” Bradley said. “[The law enforcement agent] may be aroused by what he views, but it’s not pornographic consumption precisely because he doesn’t mean to be aroused by what he views.”After offering his definitions of pornographic consumption and production, Bradley turned to St. Augustine’s teachings on sexual pleasure, which he said are noteworthy despite their apparent harshness.“In Augustine’s view, sexual pleasure and the drive for it are irrevocably enmeshed and warped by what Cavadini calls ideologies of power and domination,” Bradley said, referencing Notre Dame professor of theology John Cavadini.“For Augustine, pride is the sin of illusory elevation of self, over God. It’s that tendency or inclination to replace God with oneself, the irrational privileging of oneself over everyone else including God,” Bradley said. “… The heart that is configured by [pride] will take great pleasure in its own use of power.”“The essence of pornography is domination, is control,” he said. “The viewer controls the subject, who responds to his wishes and can be appropriated without concern for his or her personhood.”Bradley said lust and pornographic consumption are closely linked.“This appetite for lust is deeply embedded in our culture.” Bradley explained. “It finds expression not just in images, but in written words, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and in popular narratives about relationships and expectations as well. Pornography is, sadly, for us at least, a cultural project. Lust imbues pornographic consumption with a horrible and deep boredom.”Bradley discussed what a person who seeks to engage in sexual activity must do in order to heal himself or herself of the tainted perspective that results from being in a culture that is surrounded by pornographic images. He pointed to prayer and the Eucharist and encouraged the audience to seek the humility of Christ instead of pride.Bradley said the way to overcome the boredom that porn eventually causes is to fully appreciate the humanity of the person with whom one is in a relationship. In doing so, a person is thereby doing exactly what porn does not, which is appreciating humanity. He concluded with a final reference to the hope that lies in the Eucharist.“We may not have supposed it, but the most humane response to the problem of pornography may ultimately rest in the joyful hope and humility afforded by a sound ecclesiology and in the consumption of a body after all, be it one of a very different nature,” Bradley said.Tags: Edith Stein, Edith Stein Project Conference, John Cavadini, pornography, Theologylast_img read more

Sisters of Notre Dame discuss their experiences as nuns

first_imgSeveral nuns living and working at Notre Dame gathered to share stories of their vocations and ministry experiences in a panel discussion Tuesday night. The panel, held in Coleman-Morse Hall and co-hosted by Campus Ministry and the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism, was moderated by Cushwa Center director Kathleen Cummings.Amongst the Sisters present were rectors, professors and associate deans at Notre Dame. The panel included Sister Ann Astell, professor of theology, Sister Kathleen Cannon, associate dean in the College of Science, Sister Mary Donnelly, rector of Flaherty Hall, Sister Mary Jane Hahner, rector of Pasquerilla West Hall, Sister Mary Catherine Hilkert, professor of theology, Sister Mary Lynch, rector of McGlinn Hall and Sister Susan Sisko, rector of Badin Hall. Chris Collins | The Observer Nuns who serve a variety of roles on campus speak at a panel discussion titled “Notre Dame’s Sisters and Their Stories.” The sisters discussed their callings and sought to educate attendees about life as a sister.Before the sisters were introduced, Cummings explained why the Cushwa Center and Campus Ministry elected to form this panel event. Cummings said that not much is known about the lives of sisters, as a 2015 study conducted by the Conrad Hilton Foundation indicated.“Catholic Sisters, while highly respected, remain a mystery to most Americans,” Cummings said, referring the study results. The panel aimed to debunk the common stereotypes and media representation of sisters in having the nuns relate their life experiences.The sisters began by introducing themselves and giving a brief history of their personal congregation. The women also shared the story of their vocation. Some sisters felt the calling to a life of ministry at a young age. Astell said she knew as young as 8–years–old, when she received her first communion, that she would live a holy life. Similarly, Cannon’s vocation was influenced by her school teachers, who were sisters.“Somehow I knew that this wasn’t just teaching, it was somehow making the world a better place,” Astell said. “So I began to grow into this identity.”Others, including Hahner and Donnelly, said they received their calling later in life. For instance, Hahner began her career working in a tax office, while Donnelly initially worked in a toy store. Despite their first jobs, the sisters realized they could no longer ignore their vocation.“There’s this mosquito, and you’re like ‘Get off me,’ but it’s God,” Sisko said.That one mosquito eventually becomes a swarm, she said.“To get rid of this swarm, I realized I should do what this vocation director suggested and visit the congregation,” Sisko said.Despite their different paths to the sisterhood, each panelist expressed their gratitude for their time at Notre Dame and their time working at the university.“I knew of the rector position, I loved the school and I wanted to get to get back to campus ministry on a college campus,” Sisko said. “I decided I needed to come home to Notre Dame.”Donnelly said she was thankful for her experience as rector of Flaherty Hall.“There’s something special about college students,” she said. “There’s something in all of you that feeds my spirit.”Tags: Campus Ministry, Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism, Nuns, rectors, Sisters of Notre Dame, Vocationlast_img read more

Holiday weight gain

first_img“The average person gains about one pound during the holiday season, but if you don’t lose that pound, it can add up over the years,” said Connie Crawley, a Cooperative Extension food, nutrition and health specialist coordinating the statewide program. “The point is to help people to stay aware of what they’re eating.” The challenge will lead into Cooperative Extension’s annual Walk Georgia program, which invites residents to track their physical activity and travel virtually across the state. Starting Feb. 10, Georgians will be able to log minutes of physical activity for the 12-week challenge. Registration open Feb. 1 at www.walkgeorgia.org Topics include curbing cravings, staying active, moderating consumption, estimating portions, drinking more water and sending leftovers home with others. “We send newsletters as reminders to log activity, which include great recipes and information about Georgia’s parks,” Crawley said. “There’s a local element to it and even competition. Several UGA deans are already talking about it.” For more information or to find your county agent, see http://extension.uga.edu/about/county/index.cfm.center_img “While writing the topics, I solicited tips from the agents, and there were some creative responses,” said Crawley. “One measured her driveway and found that walking the length 10 times is a mile. Even if she can’t get away from the house, she can walk up and down the driveway with family. Another agent makes a point to drink two bottles of water before work, two during the workday and two at home at the end of the day.” Georgia residents can contact their local Extension office to join the email list, which will begin during the week of Thanksgiving and extend through the beginning of January. University of Georgia Cooperative Extension agents are proposing tips to help Georgians keep the pounds off during the holiday season. As part of a new program this year, agents are starting the Zero Weight Gain Challenge, which will include weekly emails about ways to reduce the holiday bulge.last_img read more

Colombian Bishops Reaffirm Willingness to Mediate Hostage Releases

first_imgBy Dialogo July 10, 2009 Bogotá, July 9 (EFE).- Today Colombia’s Catholic bishops reaffirmed their willingness “to serve as mediators” in the release of hostages held by the FARC, after President Álvaro Uribe authorized opposition legislator Piedad Córdoba to participate in the process. “If there is something that needs to be done for the release of hostages, we are always here to serve,” the new general secretary of the Colombian Bishops’ Conference, Msgr. Juan Vicente Córdoba, an Ecuadorian currently serving as auxiliary bishop of Bucaramanga, said in an interview with Caracol Radio. Uribe yesterday authorized Córdoba to try once again to mediate the release of the FARC’s hostages, but on the condition that the twenty-four kidnapped police and military personnel and three corpses in the power of the guerrillas be handed over “simultaneously.” Before leaving on a trip to the United States, Uribe indicated that Córdoba could participate in the humanitarian mission charged with receiving the captives, together with the International Red Cross and the Catholic Church, after he withdrew her authorization to participate in April. In response, Córdoba thanked Uribe for his gesture, which she characterized as “positive,” and asked him for a meeting to “tackle the fundamental parameters for the release” of those kidnapped by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). In mid April the FARC announced that they would release Army Cpl. Pablo Emilio Moncayo, kidnapped at the end of 1998, and in June they indicated that along with Moncayo, they would hand over another member of the military who was wounded in combat. The condition demanded by the guerrillas was the presence of Córdoba for the handover of the hostages, something that Uribe opposed until yesterday. “The president has taken a step; we congratulate him. We hope that the guerrillas consent to the releases,” Monsignor Córdoba commented today, adding that, in his judgment, “it’s going to be a bit complicated” to have a “simultaneous” handover of hostages, as Uribe has called for. Meanwhile, Ingrid Betancourt, rescued a year ago in Jaque Operation, said in a statement published today by several Colombian media outlets that she is “pleased” by Uribe’s decision, since Córdoba’s participation in the releases “is very important, and her presence is a guarantee for assuring the lives of those kidnapped.” “I believe that (Uribe) is right to call for all of them to be released. This is something that honors him and reassures us,” the former Colombian presidential candidate, who was a hostage of the FARC for more than six years, expressed. “If I understood correctly, in calling for the releases to be simultaneous, it is not excluded the possibility that there could be several releases in different places, a possibility which might be of interest to the guerrillas,” she added.last_img read more

Moses elected to lead the young lawyers

first_img Moses elected to lead the young lawyers Assistant Editor Making a greater effort to reach out to young lawyers across the state and working to strengthen the current efforts of the division are some of the goals Orlando lawyer Jamie Billotte Moses hopes to accomplish when she assumes the presidency of the Bar’s Young Lawyers Division.Moses, 34, recently defeated Paul J. Scheck of Orlando by a 24-17 vote of the YLD Board of Governors to become president-elect designate of the division. Moses will serve as president-elect for 2004-05 under incoming YLD President Michael J. Faehner and become YLD president in June 2005.“I look forward to encouraging and leading the young lawyers of the state to achieve great things,” said Moses, a single mother of two young children, and a partner with Fisher, Rushmer, Werrenrath, Dickson, Talley & Dunlap, P.A.Faehner said Moses is one the “hardest working” lawyers he knows and looks forward to working with her during his term.“I think that the 18,000 young lawyers are very fortunate to have her as president-elect designee of the YLD,” Faehner said. “She’s going to do a great job,”Moses said one of the main purposes of the YLD is to support The Florida Bar Board of Governors in its governance of the profession.“Therefore, I would obviously hope to assist President-elect Designee Alan Bookman during his term,” Moses said. “As for what I hope the YLD will focus on, I would like to improve the programs that we currently have so that all who participate in them are benefitting as much as possible. The YLD does so many wonderful things throughout the year, and we need to make sure that we are doing all that we can to provide quality products — whether they be seminars, symposiums, or a newsletter.”Moses — an appellate attorney who also does real estate malpractice defense and insurance coverage litigation — also wants to strengthen the YLD’s ties to its local bar affiliates.“We have made a concerted effort not to only support our current young lawyer sections across the state, but to form new sections in areas that haven’t had one,” Moses said.For example, she said, this year the YLD helped to establish new young lawyer affiliates in Polk, Marion, and West Pasco counties.Faehner said Moses deserves a lot of the credit for helping to establish the new local bar affiliates.“She’s done quite a bit of traveling to get more young lawyers involved with voluntary bar associations,” Faehner said.Faehner said that he and Moses have worked together in the past and plan on continuing their efforts to “raise the interaction between The Florida Bar and the local young lawyer division affiliates.”Moses said she would like the YLD board to continue reaching out to its constituents and support their efforts to serve the public and the profession.Faehner believes he and Moses will work well together as a team because they share a connection. Both attended the University of Notre Dame. He received his undergraduate degree there, and that’s where Moses attended law school.“I can guarantee that we are never going to have a board meeting on a Saturday that conflicts with Notre Dame football,” Faehner said.Moses said her partner and former Bar Board of Governors member, John Fisher, impressed upon her how important it is to become involved in Bar work, and her firm is very supportive of her Bar activities. In addition to The Florida Bar YLD Board of Governors, she also serves on the Orange County Bar Executive Council, the OCBA YLS Board of Directors, and the Appellate Court Rules Committee.“These commitments take a lot of time from my practice, but my firm has supported my efforts for over nine years,” Moses said. “My firm is so supportive of my efforts, that they pay for my childcare while I do Bar service.”Moses said she is involved in Bar activities to encourage “and lead others to use their powers accordingly.”“Lawyers have incredible knowledge and access to powerful people. We have an obligation to use that knowledge and access to do good in our communities,” she said.“If we do not, we abuse the privilege to practice law,” Moses said.Moses graduated from the University of Notre Dame School of Law in 1994 and received her undergraduate degree from UCLA in 1991. Moses’ children are Ashley, 5, and her son Bennett, will turn 3 at the end of March.Moses also enjoys competing in triathalons and running races and likes to attend sporting events, fish, and is into craft-making.

It only took six months to restore but this Queenslander is back to its roots in New South Wales

first_img45 Tumbulgum Rd, Murwillumbah.THE owners of this stunning 1950s riverside home went to great lengths to ensure their home stayed quintessentially Queenslander in New South Wales when they restored it.

It needs some love but is a short stroll from the Wynnum waterfrontThe majority of interest in the house has come from first home buyers and builders, Mr Hagen said. And it is little surprise when you consider that the median house sales price in Wynnum has grown 26 per cent in five years, according to CoreLogic property data. Riskwise CEO Doron Peleg said lifestyle, weather and affordable housing made Queensland a great place to invest. “I’m originally from Redcliffe and have always liked Scarborough. It is quiet, we can go paddleboarding,” Mr Groves, an electrician, said.“Where we are now, it is busy. Here we are 800m if that from the water.”Ms Szulc said she was seeing a lot of interest in the Redcliffe market, with buyers, local and interstate, looking for that “Aussie lifestyle”.Deception Bay, which is also in the Moreton Bay council region, had the lowest median house sales price (southeast region) on the list at $358,218. Houses closer to the water were generally $200,000 more, but still below the median house sales price for Greater Brisbane ($530,000).Coolum Beach was the only Sunshine Coast location to make the list, with a median house sales price of $647,893.

New data shows the seaside locations that offer the best bang for buck.And, in many cases, the buyers have all of the bargaining chips.Top of the list is Barney Point, a beachside suburb of Gladstone. Here, 12 houses sold over the past 12 months with a median house sales price of just $142,000 – that’s 22 per cent of the median house sales price of $630,000 on the Gold Coast and that does not even remotely get you water views. Ray White agent Derran Corke is marketing 48 Sutton Street – a “quaint cottage” just one street back from The Esplanade in Barney Point. It goes under the hammer on December 11.Mr Corke said prices dropped after work in the resources industry dried up, but there was renewed confidence in the area. He said rents were increasing and investors were returning, with people moving back to Gladstone. “This one (Barney Point) has city views but is two streets back from the beach so would make a good investment, and it is affordable,” he said. Rounding out the top five cheapest beachside suburbs across Queensland is Russell Island ($200,000), Forrest Beach ($205,000), Balgal Beach ($208,000) and Cow Bay ($222,500), according to CoreLogic.In terms of bargaining power, buyers should take a look at South Mission Beach, where the median time on market for a house is 356 days, according to property data. A “potter’s chic shack” on a 1012sq m block is on the market for $695,000.
