Following the first two days of international FEI competition at CPEDI 3* Moorsele, BEL, being held April 25-27, the Canadian Para-Equestrian Team finished in third place as a nation out of 10 countries in the team competition and have posted seven top three results over the past two days.Roberta Sheffield, Lauren Barwick, Ashley Gowanlock and Robyn Andrews represented Canada in the Nations’ Cup Team competition where the placings are calculated using the combined scores from the Team Test, held April 25, and the Individual Test, on April 26. The team from Belgium finished in first and second was awarded to Italy.Barwick of Aldergrove, BC rode Equine Canada’s 13-year-old Oldenburg mare, Off to Paris, and her own mare Ferdonia 2, a 15-year-old Oldenburg in Grade II. With Off to Paris, Barwick finished in first place in both of her tests, earning 70.882% in the Team Test and 73.086% in the Individual Championship Test. Riding her second horse, Ferdonia 2, Barwick was second in both tests as well. She earned 70.118% in the Team Test and 72.029% in the Individual Championship Test.“Both of my horses are fabulous partners and I am humbled by their willingness to go in the ring over and over again and try their hardest,” said Barwick, who is a three-time Paralympian. “I also want to give a big thank you to my team, grooms and Laura Dixon for travelling down from England last minute to assist us during the competition.”Sheffield of Lincolnshire, UK competed with Miss Evelyn Little’s eight-year-old gelding Dutch Warmblood, Bindro T, and her seven-year-old Anglo-European Studbook mare, Double Agent in Grade III. With Bindro T, Sheffield tied for third in the Team Test scoring 67.263%, and secured third place in the Individual Championship Test with 68.707%. Riding Double Agent, Sheffield was fifth in the Team Test with 66.605% and scored 67.463%, for seventh, in the Individual Championship Test.Competing in Grade Ib, two-time Paralympian Ashley Gowanlock of Surrey, BC and Collegiate Sweet Leilani, M. Kendalyne Overway’s 13-year-old Morgan mare, were third with 68.240% in the Team Test, and fourth in the Individual Championship Test, scoring 66.931%.“I am feeling extremely grateful at this point in time. Grateful that I have grooms that are willing to take months of their lives and devote them to helping me pursue my dreams. I am also grateful to Kendalyne Overway for loaning me her amazing horse so that I can take her to Europe,” said Gowanlock.“I am grateful to the team coaches for helping me put the pieces of the puzzle together on the fly with such a new horse and rider partnership, and I am grateful to the behind the scenes people at Equine Canada for organizing such a monumental European tour,” she added.Riding her mare Fancianna, a 13-year-old Friesian Andalusian cross in Grade Ia, Andrews of St. Johns, NL, was eighth in her Team Test with 65.739 % and eighth with 64.261% in the Individual Championship test.“The competition at Moorsele has been a wonderful experience. Being included in the team and placing third only proves that Para-Dressage in Canada is moving in the right direction,” said Andrews. “Thanks go to my coach Sue McTavish, Mary Longden, Andrea Taylor, Amie O’Shaughnessy, Elizabeth Quigg and all our fabulous grooms without whom we would never be prepared to compete.”Also in the Grade Ia was Jody Schloss of Toronto, ON, with her 16-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding, Inspector Rebus. The pair placed ninth in the Team Test with 65.261% and ninth in the Individual Championship Test with a score of 64.087%.Andrews, Barwick, Sheffield and Gowanlock have qualified to ride in the always popular musical freestyle test when the competition continues on April 27.“Today marked a high point in our three international competition tour. Winning bronze in the team competition against some of the top European teams has given the Canadian riders a big boost of confidence,” commented Elizabeth Quigg, Chef d’équipe. “Led by Lauren Barwick, who won both her team and individual classes, it is great to have all four team members qualify for the Freestyle competition. With three major competitions in four weeks and travelling with seven horses, five riders, coaches and support personnel, it’s a real test for everyone, and I am proud to say everyone is working together to create the best possible performance outcomes.”Leading the team on the European tour are Amie O’Shaughnessy, Director of Para-Equestrian; Mary Longden, team coach; Andrea Taylor, team coach, and Elizabeth Quigg, Chef d’équipe. A large support team is also accompanying the athletes, including Sue McTavish, Diana Andrews, Patty Merrill, Skye Hanlon, Laura Dixon, Grace Catts Tucker and Lauren Massey.Complete results for CPEDI3* Moorsele may be found here.CPEDI 3* Moorsele is the second stop for the Canadian riders on the European tour.

Three Injured after Eight Rigs Crash in California

first_imgLOS ANGELES (AP) – The California Highway Patrol was investigating the cause of a crash involving at least eight big-rigs on rain-slicked Interstate 5 in the mountains north of Los Angeles.Three people received minor injuries in the Monday night collision in the southbound lanes of the I-5 truck tunnel near State Route 14, authorities said.Four tankers containing gas, crude oil, milk and chemicals, were involved in the crash, but none ruptured, Los Angeles Fire Department Erik Scott said.KCAL-TV footage showed a tangle of trucks and traffic backed up behind them for miles.Dozens of firefighters from Los Angeles city and county initially responded to the scene, along with California Highway Patrol officers.It had been raining throughout the day in the Los Angeles area, but it wasn’t known if weather contributed to the crash, authorities said.The pileup occurred near the site of a deadly chain-reaction crash in 2007 that involved more than two dozen vehicles and left three people dead. A truck driver speeding on the rain-slicked interstate – the major West Coast route between Mexico and Canada – lost control and crashed into a median barrier in the truck lane tunnel, setting off the crashes and sparking a deadly inferno, investigators concluded.The 2007 collisions closed the busy highway for two days and cost $17 million to clean up and repair.last_img read more

Alumnus shares design career trajectory

first_imgRyan Meinerding, the Head of Visual Development at Marvel Studios and 1999 Notre Dame graduate, spoke Monday night in West Lake Hall about his career in design and his work on various movies including Iron Man 2, Captain America and The Avengers.“I head up a team of artists that actually do all the character design for all of the marvel studios movies,” Meinerding said. “We also do key frame illustrations, which is going through the script and figuring out what the key moments are and how to visualize them. We illustrate and design things as early as possible in production so the director and producers can understand what the movie is going to look like before it’s made.”Meinerding said he dabbled in website and video game character design before working for Marvel Studios.“I began trying to do animation style work, but I learned very quickly that across all of the companies that do animation: Pixar, DreamWorks, Sony, there are basically three guys that do all of the animation,” he said. “The jobs that are design jobs for the other people are designing all the doors or all the tables in the films and I decided pretty quickly I wasn’t going to do animation, which is sad because I really enjoy it.“That’s when I started to do more realistic work, like live action film design.”Meinerding said he and his team focus on whatever story the filmmakers are trying to tell and align the spirit of the characters with the Marvel Universe.“The visuals of the movie define the tone, however dramatic or comedic, and that’s the driving force for the storytelling,” he said. “Behind that, we aim to be true to the comics. Other comic book movies that are being done not by Marvel Studios aren’t always using that as the basis for their films, but at Marvel we try to be true to the story of the film and true to the source material.”“We have a faith in the character and in the brand that’s been around forever,” he said. “Captain America has been around for over 70 years. We try to find what’s fantastic about that character and bring it to life, as opposed to reinterpreting or changing it.”One of the biggest challenges as a designer in the film industry is maintaining a sense of integrity and pride in your work, Meinerding said, while still putting out pieces at the demanding pace required by the industry.“It’s very easy to get beaten down by deadlines and say I can’t do something good,” he said. “That’s a constant challenge with concept art because things have gotten to the point where people are just using photocopying and using pictures as their bases and not taking pride in their work, they just want to get something done that looks realistic.”Meinerding said it can be challenging when his work is not selected as the final design, but that he has learned to step back as a manager and realize that the design that is chosen will be quality.“Our job is to present the best options that we are capable of preventing,” he said. “If I get to draw Captain America and it doesn’t get picked I’m still okay with that because I got to draw Captain America. It can get disheartening in some context like when politics are involved and they actively aren’t picking the best design, but because we’re in a place where I have hired a lot of people that I know are doing great stuff. If my stuff doesn’t get picked, I still know it’s going to be a good design.”Tags: Marvellast_img read more

Notre Dame hosts high school Model UN conference

first_imgMore than 170 students from nine Midwestern high schools traveled to campus this weekend to participate in the Notre Dame Model U.N.’s (NDMUN) inaugural high-school conference.“It’s been really a dream of the club for, really, as long as the club has been around,” senior secretary-general Zachary Mastrovich said. “September of 2015 was really when we decided to make that dream become reality. “At that point, we were looking for venues, started talking to all the legal offices, spoke to some website and registration programmers and did everything we could to prepare — we gathered about 40 Notre Dame students to help out, trained them if they needed it.” High school student committees were allowed to sign up according to three levels of difficulty, depending on their experience: beginner, intermediate or advanced. “We are a beginner conference, but we knew some of the schools we were inviting had some really advanced delegates, so we wanted to make sure we had committees right for them,” Mastrovich said. “So we broke down our committees into three levels … with the advanced committees being crisis-based.”The advanced committees were constantly in contact with a “crisis committee,” who would constantly change the scenario to test the students. “The crisis committee will say, ‘A bomb is about to go off in a major city,’ and so you would go back to the crisis committee with your plan and they would say ‘OK, you did this, but here’s what’s going on now,’ and it’s a continually changing process. So we had two committees like that the crisis staff focused on.”The beginner and intermediate committees were more focused on the delegates forming resolutions and groups, although Mastrovich said that was still a part of the advanced committee’s challenge.  Mastrovich said the NDMUN conference was a success and the club was already planning on meeting next week to plan next year’s. “It was an incredible experience,” he said. “I was lucky enough to be the secretary general and watch everything come to life. We met there a couple hours early to make sure everything was set up right and schools started arriving and it was like, ‘Wow, this is a real thing, it’s actually happening.’ It was cool. I found it very rewarding.” As part of the planning process for next year, Mastrovich said the club would like to invite more schools to make the conference more diverse than it was this year, which had schools from Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin. “We’re always looking for more help,” he said. “We want to continually grow this conference so if anyone has any experience they can reach out. Kylie [Ruscheinski] is running it next year. If anyone wants to get involved, please reach out and we’ll help get you involved.” Tags: conference, crisis committee, high school, Model UNlast_img read more

419 first-year, transfer students to join Saint Mary’s community

first_imgThis fall 396 first-year students and 23 transfer students will close the circle and join the Saint Mary’s community.Diane Park | The Observer Despite colleges around the country anticipating a decline in enrollment rates and subsequent loss of tuition revenue as a result of of the coronavirus pandemic, Saint Mary’s is “pleased with the size of the Class of 2024 and very excited about the profile of the class,” director of admission Sarah Gallagher Dvorak said in an email.  “We can’t know for certain exactly how enrollment was impacted by the global pandemic, but you’d be hard pressed to find anyone working in college or university enrollment offices who would say that there wasn’t some sort of impact,” Gallagher Dvorak said.  “We did expect a bit of a bigger class given where our enrollment numbers were in early March, but things did slow down a bit once the pandemic took over and the world began to shut down.”The incoming class of 2024 hails from all corners of the United States, representing 29 different states, according to Gallagher Dvorak, as well as two countries. The diversity of the incoming class also spans beyond geographical boundaries and is reflected in their experiences. “This class has entrepreneurs, authors, scientists, artists, athletes, and many, many students who have volunteered both in their communities and communities all over the world to make life better for the people who live there,” Gallagher Dvorak said. These students have succeeded inside the classroom as well. The average GPA of the incoming class is higher than a 3.8, she said. This year, students from underrepresented communities make up 22% of the incoming first-year class. Gallagher Dvorak said this number is consistent with what has been seen in previous year’s enrollments — last year, being the outlier with a very large increase of underrepresented students. For Gallagher Dvorak the diversity of a student body is important because all students benefit from surrounding themselves with peers from all different walks of life. “One of the greatest values of college is to expand your knowledge and learn from others who may come from different backgrounds, who’ve had different experiences, and whose perspectives may be different than your own,” Gallagher Dvorak said. “We recognize this, and we’re proud of the diversity represented in our student body. In the coming year, we hope to build on that and enroll even more students from underrepresented populations to provide an even richer educational experience to our students.”Gallagher Dvorak said 18% of the incoming class applied early decision which shows how many applicants already had a strong affinity to attend Saint Mary’s. This strong affinity can also be seen through the prevalence of a legacy connection, as approximately 21% of the incoming class has a legacy connection. “We love to see that – their mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmothers loved their four years at Saint Mary’s and they know first hand the great benefits of being a student here.” Gallagher Dvorak said.  “They’ve passed this on and now we have the privilege to educate their loved ones.”Tags: class of 2024, Enrollment, fall 2020last_img read more

Burlington airport earns improved bond rating outlook from Moody’s

first_imgBurlington International Airport (BTV),Moody’s announced Wednesday an improvement in Burlington International Airport’s revenue bond outlook from Ba1 negative to Ba1 stable on the City of Burlington’s $43.16 million revenue bonds. This improved outlook is the result of a variety of reasons which are outlined below.Gene Richards, left, listens as Mayor Miro Weinberger speaks during the announcement last November that Allegiant Air would be offering seasonal, direct service to Orlando.BTV’s Director of Aviation, Gene Richards, said, ‘The improvement in the bond rating demonstrates the bright future ahead for the airport and shows the hard work of the BTV Team, through the direction of the Mayor, in ensuring that BTV remains financially strong for many years to come.’’ The rating incorporates the airport’s diverse carrier base and revenue mix, and improving liquidity and financial performance.’  The fundamental strength of the Burlington economy is incorporated in the rating, coupled with the lack of direct competition that is likely supportive of future increased rates and charges at the airport. For future ratings, Moody’s will especially look at improvement in enplanements, which have trended down in recent years.‘The improvement in the Airport’s rating outlook ‘ coming on the heels of the upgraded BED rating outlook and successful wastewater bond refinancing ‘ is more evidence that the City of Burlington has turned the corner in its long-term effort to restore the City’s finances and reputation,’ said Mayor Miro Weinberger.’  ‘This progress is the product of much hard work and commitment by the airport staff, City financial officials, the Airport Commission, and the City Council.’  We still have a long way to go with City and Airport finances and will continue our focus.’  We appreciate the broad support on this issue from the Burlington community.”Appropriately $43.160 million of outstanding debt affectedNew York, January 15, 2014 — Moody’s Investors Service has affirmed the Ba1 rating and revised the outlook to stable from negative on the City of Burlington’s $43 million Airport Revenue Bonds.’ RATING RATIONALE:The Ba1 rating reflects weakness in the airport’s market position shown by recent enplanement declines as well as its financial volatility shown in recent years. The rating also recognizes the airport’s diverse carrier base and revenue mix, and improving liquidity and financial performance. The fundamental strength of the Burlington economy is incorporated in the rating, coupled with the lack of direct competition that is likely supportive of future increased rates and charges at the airport.’ OUTLOOKThe stable outlook reflects the airport’s rising enplanement trend for the first half of fiscal year ending June 30, 2014, as well as the improving debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) and liquidity.’ What Could Change the Rating – UPThe rating could be pressured upward if the airport experiences reliable enplanement growth, improves debt service coverage to above 1.4x (calculated per net revenue) on a sustained basis and is able to restore and maintain liquidity to a reasonable level.’ What Could Change the Rating – DOWNThe rating could be pressured downward if liquidity and debt service coverage falls below current levels, and if leverage increases are not supported by enplanements. Also, the rating could face negative pressure if the FAA inquiry regarding possible grant program violations at the airport have a material impact.’ STRENGTHS* Large education and health care presence in City of Burlington, VT’ * Diversity of the airport revenues, including significant parking and concession revenues aside from airline derived revenues’ * Diversified airline carrier mix that minimizes passenger diversion to airports in Albany, NY and Manchester, NH.’ CHALLENGES* Volatile financial performance evidenced by debt service coverage below rate covenant of 1.25x in FY2009 and FY2010’ * Low liquidity compared to Moody’s airport sector median as measured by 122 days cash on hand in FY2012’ * Declining enplanements in recent years’ RATING METHODOLOGY’ The principal methodology used in this rating was Airports with Unregulated Rate Setting published in July 2011.
