first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter It’s On Us PA,  Press Release,  Public Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf announced today the “It’s On Us PA” program is accepting grant applications to combat sexual violence at colleges and universities. The Department of Education will award grants up to $30,000. Applications must be submitted by the end of January 31, 2018.“Since Pennsylvania joined the national “It’s On Us” campaign two years ago, more brave men and women have come forward with allegations of harassment and assault, and we must do all we can to prevent these attacks,” said Governor Wolf. “The #MeToo movement is another reminder of the seriousness of sexual assault in our society and these grants will help colleges and universities to partner with us to make campuses safer.”Programs or activities eligible for funding include campus-wide training for students, faculty and staff; institutional campaigns to raise awareness and understanding of the reporting process and resources available to and rights of survivors of sexual violence; programs that enhance awareness of available resources and students’ rights or seek to increase mechanisms for anonymous reporting; and efforts to improve capacity to collect federal- or state-required data.Grant applications are available on the Pennsylvania Department of Education website.Last year nearly $1 million in grants was awarded to 36 postsecondary institutions across the state – including community colleges, and independent and public 2- year and 4-year colleges and universities.The It’s On Us campaign is a national initiative to raise awareness about sexual assault; teaching participants that assault includes non-consensual sex, advising them on how to identify dangerous situations, empowering them to intervene, and urging them to create an environment of support for victims and survivors.Pennsylvanians are invited to join the thousands of people, including superintendents and university and college presidents, who have signed the “It’s On Us” Pledge, which encourages everyone to help end sexual assault. The It’s On Us PA website has more information about the campaign and pre-written tweets users can share on Twitter to encourage others to take the pledge.

Leah Levert helps keep Syracuse in 3-1 loss to Miami

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 11, 2016 at 11:04 pm Contact Michael: | @MikeJMcCleary Syracuse found itself down a point following a strong kill in the first set against Miami. The Hurricanes looked like they might get into a rhythm against the Orange. But that was halted by Syracuse middle blocker Leah Levert.The very next play, the junior rose up and punched the ball into the Women’s Building court on Miami’s side for her first kill. The very next point she tapped the ball with the same result: another point. Her play kept the Orange around early in the first set. She set the tone for the team that unfortunately could not catch on.Levert was one of the lone bright spots in Syracuse’s (7-18, 6-9 Atlantic Coast) 3-1 loss to Miami (12-15, 6-9) Friday night. She recorded 10 kills on only 13 attempts and notched four blocks. Her .692 hitting percentage was the top mark on the team.The Orange stayed competitive for much of the game largely because of Levert. The middle blocker’s effort was not enough to prevent SU from adding its third loss in the last four games. Her six kills in the first two sets allowed SU to carry some momentum into the back half of the match and play noticeably better in that time. The team ultimately could not come back from Miami’s early lead.“We lacked a spark,” said Levert of the team’s overall performance. “We temporarily had energy, we temporarily had the drive to fight.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAside from Levert’s performance errors plagued the rest of the game. Those errors were the deciding factor of the game as the scoring often fluctuated throughout the sets based on which team committed more errors.

Soon after the wrestler made his big revelation, the WWE also released a statement:  “Tonight on Monday Night Raw, Roman Reigns (aka Joe Anoa’i) announced that he is relinquishing the WWE Universal Championship and taking a leave of absence from WWE as he once again fights leukemia, which had been in remission since late 2008. Reigns is taking his battle with leukemia public in an effort to raise awareness and funds for research in order to advance cures for the disease.” “I’ve been living with leukemia for 11 years and unfortunately it’s back. Because the leukemia is back, I can’t fulfill my role. I can’t be that fighting champion and I’m going to have to relinquish the universal championship. I’m not going to lie, I’ll take every prayer you can send my way but I’m not looking for sympathy, I’m not looking for you to feel bad for me because I have faith.””Sometimes life throws you a curveball and the best thing for me to do is to go home and focus on my health,” Anoa’i said. “But I want to make one thing clear: By no means is this a retirement speech because after I’m done whupping leukemia’s ass, I’m coming back home. And when I do, it’s not going to be about titles and being on top, it’s about a purpose.””I’m coming back because I want to show you all at home and my family and my children and my wife that when life throws a curveball at me, I will choke up and I will swing for the fences every single time. I will beat this and I will be back so you will see me very, very soon.” WE RECOMMEND Digital Desk center_img First Published: 23rd October, 2018 14:39 IST FOLLOW US Here’s what Roman Reigns said: 1 year ago Real Kashmir FC becomes first team from J&K to debut in the Hero I-League COMMENT Reigns, who’s real name Leati Joseph Anoa’i, announced his decision by delivering an incredible speech, where he promised his fans that this wasn’t ‘retirement speech’ as he vowed that he would be back soon after undergoing treatment.
