Southland Gives Back: UIW Conducts Toy Drive for Boysville

first_imgSAN ANTONIO, Texas – UIW athletics and Boysville of San Antonio partnered for the 2019 holiday season and conducted a toy drive that ran from Nov. 4 through Dec. 6. The month-long collection event was capped with a delivery day on Friday, Dec. 13, where representatives from the Cardinals’ Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) distributed more than 150 toys to the Boysville campus.Boysville of San Antonio is an organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of abuse and neglect in families while simultaneously preparing children for success in adulthood. Since 1943, children have come to Boysville from all of the South Texas region to gain a safe, structured and family-like home. In 1986 the organization opened its doors to girls in an effort to keep siblings together.“There is no better way to exemplify the holiday spirit and UIW’s school mission than giving back to our community,” said UIW SAAC president Marissa Watters. “This year, SAAC chose to share the gift of love and compassion by providing toys to Boysville, a local organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of abuse and neglect in families while preparing for success in adulthood for children of all ages.“Providing a gift for a child in need is just one simple way for the Cardinals’ athletic department to show these children that they are not alone and are part of a much larger community that cares for them.As part of the “Southland Gives Back” initiative, the Southland Conference will profile a community service outing from each of our 13 member institutions this holiday season.last_img read more

Captain Kane sets sights on Champions League and FA Cup double under Mourinho

first_imgHARRY KANE has set his sights on Tottenham winning a cup double.The Spurs striker got Jose Mourinho’s reign off to a winning start with a goal in the 3-2 London derby win over West Ham.2 Harry Kane is targeting a Champions League and FA Cup double under new boss Jose MourinhoCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdVictory for Tottenham at home to Olympiakos in the Champions League tomorrow will send last season’s finalists into the knock-out stages with a game to spare.Kane said: “Realistically, we look at the Champions League and the FA Cup. We will see how that goes and I will keep doing what I’m doing and keep fighting.”Kane limped out of the London Stadium with a bruise on his foot, a bump on his head and a belief in his heart he can finally win silverware with his beloved Spurs.And before you ask, his belief was not the result of the knock to his noggin!It was due to the arrival of Mourinho as manager.The Special One, who was appointed as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor on Wednesday morning, made an instant impact as he guided Tottenham to their first Premier League away win for TEN MONTHS.It ended Spurs’ run of five top-flight without a victory and raised their hopes this season may not be a write-off after all.Kane said: “The gaffer has won at every club he has gone to — there’s no hiding away from that. He wants to win, he’s a proven winner.“I’ve made it clear that I’m at the stage of my career where I want to win trophies. I’ve made it clear I want to win them here and it’s a big year for this.2“Realistically, we look at the Champions League and the FA Cup to try to do that.“We will see how that goes and, from my point of view, I will keep doing what I’m doing and keep fighting for this club on the pitch.”Spurs are nine points off fourth spot, but Kane refused to rule out a fifth successive top-four finish.He said: “We’ve managed to do it the last four seasons and we know how big it is to be playing in the Champions League, doing well in the Champions League, making this club even bigger around Europe.“We’ve started difficult this season, but we still have full belief that we can make the top four.“It’s massive for the players, for the club, financially for the club to reach the Champions League so that’s our aim in the Premier League this season.”Kane headed Spurs 3-0 up in the 49th minute after first-half strikes had put the visitors in control.But they took their foot off the pedal and late goals from Michail Antonio and Angelo Ogbonna flattered the Hammers.It was crazy end to a crazy week for Tottenham stars, who saw Pochettino axed on Tuesday night after five-and-a-half years at the helm – and Mourinho named as his replacement 12 hours later.Kane, who injured his foot as he scored and then was almost KO’d as he bravely put his head in front of Aaron Cresswell’s thunderbolt free-kick, admitted: “It’s been a week I’ve never really had in my career before.“It was a big shock on Tuesday night for everyone, the players included. Then it was a quick turnaround and all of a sudden we got a new manager, one of the best managers there has been in the game.“So you have to automatically have to turn your head towards that and focus on this game. Obviously, there was a lot of emotion, a lot of energy, but the gaffer came in and said it was all about just preparing for Saturday.“He said get yourselves ready and you don’t have to impress me in days one and two, so don’t run about wasting your energy.“It was about going out here and performing, and thankfully we got the win.”It showed what a bunch of shysters footballers truly are – as Spurs stars looked a totally different group to the ones who had been sacking it off under Poch this season.It also highlighted the ex-manager’s part in their sorry start as you were left wondering why he had struggled to get a tune out of them.But it was sweet music for Mourinho, who has insisted Kane is not for sale at any price.The striker said: “When you do well as a player, it brings a price tag on your head.Most Read In SportTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own club“Look, all I can do is do my best for the team and that’s what I’ve always done.”I’ve always tried to score, I’ve always tried to work hard, win free-kicks, and get over the line any way you can.

Mayweather makes big money offer to McGregor for super-fight

first_imgSpeaking on ESPN’s First Take, the undefeated boxer made the clearest offer yet to the UFC champion.A potential superfight between the pair has been rumoured since last year when McGregor apparently announced his retirement from the sport.The Irishman went on to beat Nate Diaz in a rematch and claim the lightweight title with a devastating win over Eddie Alvarez in November.Mayweather, who retired in September 2015 with a lacklustre win over Andre Berto, claims he’s still the ‘A-side’ of a fight with McGregor and outlined some outrageous figures that would need to be met if the bout went ahead.“You guys keep hearing all these different rumors about different fighters want to face Floyd Mayweather,” he said.“Everybody keeps talking about Conor McGregor. He’s blowing smoke up everybody’s ass. Dana White, the UFC – let’s make it happen.“Bring him over to the boxing world, and I’ll show him what it’s like.“We tried to make the Conor McGregor fight. They know what my number is. My number is a guaranteed $100 million. That was my number.“We are willing to give him $15 million and then we can talk about splitting the percentage – the back end – on the pay-per-view.“But of course, we’re the ‘A side.’ How can a guy talk about making 20 or 30 million if he has never made 8 or 9 million in a fight.”McGregor’s disclosed pay for his UFC 202 rematch with Diaz was (US) $3 million, with a rumoured total payday of around $15 million after the pay-per view figures were accounted for.Early last year, McGregor became the first UFC fighter ever to crack the Forbes 100 highest paid athletes list, raking in about $22 million.Following three more blockbuster fights, including becoming the first fighter ever to hold belts in two different weight classes simultaneously, he says he expects to earn almost twice that in 2016.“By the time 2016 closes out, I’ll be closing in on $40 million,” he said. “This is a $40 million dollar year for me. It’s been a damn good year.”While no other UFC fighter even comes close to earning as much as McGregor does, Mayweather is in another world altogether.For his final fight – a unanimous decision win over Berto – the 49-0 boxer made a guaranteed $32 million, taking his total 2015 earnings to $282 million after his victory over Manny Pacquiao. Berto made $4 million for the Las Vegas fight – outdoing McGregor’s best guaranteed payday by some margin.Many in the boxing world believe Mayweather could be lured out of retirement for the right money and to beat Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 record.Only time – and cash – will tell.last_img read more

Do you know how to interpret your cat’s behavior? Check if you really understand him

first_imgFacial expressions show moodA test that analyzes how much you know your cat Image: iStock Communication is fundamental in our society. But in addition to being able to communicate with words, we can also pay attention to the expressions or gestures that a person has to understand them. However, understanding a body and facial expression of someone can be quite complicated if we do not deal with a person and much less if we focus on cats.center_img Cats are very dear animals in society, but by having such an independent behavior, they often fail to understand them. Still, cat owners know their feline friends perfectly and although these animals cannot speak, they have many other ways of expressing what they feel.A recent study by biologist Georgia Mason concluded that there are few people able to correctly understand the facial expressions of cats. If you think you are in that small group of people, you can try it by doing a simple test. A test in which to answer if the cat has a positive or negative emotion The Cat Faces Study is composed of 8 questions. In each of them a video of a cat appears doing something specific and according to this we have to answer if it is having a positive or negative emotion. Once the test is finished, if our results are good we can perform a second test but with more complicated questions.Although it seems that the test is simple, the videos have been modified so that we can only see the face of the cat and thus not help us with the external situation. To get a positive result we will have to be attentive to all the movements of each cat.last_img read more
