On Jan. 12, Queer and Ally Student Assembly hosted their spring barbecue in Alumni Park.Catered Hawaiian barbecue awaited attendees on brightly colored tablecloths. The atmosphere was a fun and vibrant one, due to the music that blared loudly from speakers.Rainbow colors · Banners QuASA put up in honor of National Coming Out Day on Oct. 11 still fly proudly over Trousdale Parkway. – Razan Al Marzouqi | Daily TrojanAlec White, a sophomore majoring in political science and a QuASA member, spearheaded the spring barbecue.“QuASA is a great organization, especially for those who are not out yet. We put on events to show our support — to show that they aren’t the only ones who feel a certain way about themselves,” White said.White’s involvement with QuASA is unique as he identifies as straight in an organization of predominantly queer and gay students.“QuASA is here because it’s everyone. It reaches so many different kinds of identities, whether you are queer or straight. Maybe you are Latino or Jewish — we get everyone,” said Becca Grumet, executive director of QuASA.Grumet described how her role in such an active student group on campus serves as her main inspiration.“I love giving people what they want. Once, QuASA brought a couple of famous YouTube bloggers to campus,” Grumet said. “Seeing students shaking when meeting the stars they are obsessed with was so cool. It sounds cheesy, but it’s that feeling of making people’s dreams come true.”According to Grumet, one of the events that are currently in the works for the semester are the Valentine’s Day Sex Carnival and a dodgeball event called Everybody’s Dodgeball.Glenn Young, assistant director of QuASA, is looking forward to the Sex Carnival, in particular.“The Sex Carnival is a fair that will promote safe sex and sexual awareness and awareness of different identities,” Young said. “We plan to bring in food trucks and though I don’t want to compare it to Springfest, we want to make it big like that.”One of QuASA’s signature and most popular events is the Second Chance Prom, which will be held at The Lorenzo this year. In the past, the Second Chance Prom featured themes like “Zombies” and was held at the California Science Center.Within the next two weeks, QuASA has planned a Rainbow Skate Night and a Welcome Back Dance.One of the organizations under QuASA is OUTreach. Its service-oriented projects range from helping the homeless to working with LGBT senior citizens.As QuASA and its member organizations move forward, Co-President Dawson Ray stressed improving the partnership between LGBT students and their allies.“One thing that the USC community could do a better job of is joining the Ally Alliance group. As of right now, I feel like we have two members — the president and vice president,” Ray said. “It was started recently, but I feel like not a lot of people know about it, or those who know about it identify as queer or gay. Getting the word out about Ally Alliance would be great.”
Melbourne, Australia | AFP | World number one Simona Halep Saturday admitted losing the 2018 Australian Open final was a painful moment, but it taught her how to better handle pressure situations which she has since put to good use.The Romanian was targeting a first ever Grand Slam title in that match against Caroline Wozniacki and looked on track to win before folding in the third set.Halep had won her service game and then broke the Dane to get a 4–3 lead.She served for what would have been a 5–3 advantage but Wozniacki broke then held serve for lead 5–4. The fired-up Dane went on to break again and win 7-6 (7/2), 3-6, 6-4, leaving Halep crushed.“I didn’t want to think that much about that match because it was really painful to lose it,” she said at Melbourne Park when asked to reflect on what went wrong.“But I learned some things from that match. That break (at 4-3) broke me a little bit in that moment.“Now I know how to manage better if that happens again.“She was better at that moment and maybe fresher than me because I played so many long matches before. She was actually less tired than me and deserved to win. She was stronger,” she added. A gutsy Halep took what she learned into the next major of the year, the French Open, and made no similar mistakes, romping through the third set of the final 6-1 against Sloane Stephens to finally clinch her maiden Slam title.“It made a big difference (because) I can say inside myself I did what I wanted to do. I won a Grand Slam finally,” said the 27-year-old.“Now I can say I’m a real number one Before I said without a Grand Slam, you are not a real number one.“I’m happy. I’m enjoying the time. Everything I’ve done last year made me be more relaxed,” she added.– Chill out –The stellar year saw Halep end 2018 as the world number one, despite her season ending early in October when she suffered a herniated disc in her back.She called the injury “very scary” and literally did nothing for six weeks to get over it.But the lay-off means she will start her Australian Open campaign against Estonia’s Kaia Kanepi with limited court time after crashing out of the warm-up Sydney International at the first hurdle.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2

Vine/Andy WittryMaryland struggled down the stretch this season, but played Big Ten favorite Michigan State very tough in today’s conference semifinal. With 0.8 seconds left, down 64-61, the Terps had a chance at a long Melo Trimble heave to tie the game, and on the play it appears that he may have been fouled by Michigan State’s Eron Harris while shooting. A call would have put Trimble, an 86-percent free throw shooter, on the line with a chance to tie the game, but the referees swallowed their whistles, giving Sparty the win.Was it the right call? You decide:Last shot by Maryland. Close call on if it’s a foul or not. Michigan St. wins and will play Purdue tomorrow https://t.co/lCScEB2jwb— THE MAIN MANN™ (@JacobMann_1) March 12, 2016Twitter certainly doesn’t have a consensus.Don’t think that was a foul on Harris but WHY IS HE THERE???— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) March 12, 2016That was a foul on the last shot but #Terps had their chances.— Zachary Cohen (@ZcohenCNN) March 12, 2016LOL Maryland got screwed on the last play. Clear foul.— Peyton Manning GOAT (@mranieri17) March 12, 2016Maryland didn’t deserve a foul at the end. They got too many of them the first 15 minutes of the 2nd half. So no, Terp fans can’t complain— Adam Ruff (@AdamMRuff) March 12, 2016Terps nation: dont complain about the “foul” at the end. Complain about the coach that doesn’t prepare our team or make any adjustments— DLee (@dmvDLEE) March 12, 2016At any other point in the game that’s a foul. Basketball is dumb— Alyssa Goins (@AlyssaGoins) March 12, 2016“I swear to god I didn’t see it” as CBS shows him losing it because it was clearly a foul— Anthony Valle (@Ant_Films) March 12, 2016That was probably a foul at the end of the Maryland-Michigan State game, but a referee is never going to call that.— Justin Howard (@JustinHoward44) March 12, 2016At the same time, if you’re stupid enough to contest a 3/4-length shot and make contact, you should probably be punished with a foul.— Jesse Yomtov (@JesseYomtov) March 12, 2016“If that was a foul, I will tell you some other ones on our side that were fouls.” -Tom Izzo #goat #V4MSU #bigtentournament— Jerry VanDorpe (@JDVanDorpe) March 12, 2016That is 100 percent a foul.— Andrew Holleran (@andrewjholleran) March 12, 2016Calling a foul there would be very rough, but Harris can’t put himself in that position. Michigan State might’ve gotten a little lucky today.More: The 10 CFB Teams That Could Go Undefeated In 2016 >>>
New Delhi: Power distribution companies in the national capital on Friday issued an advisory for kite-flying related precautions to prevent electrocution and trippings due to use of metal-coated thread (manjha). Flying of kites picks up on the occasion of Independence Day in Delhi.”It has been observed in the past that during the monsoon season, specifically around Independence Day, a large number of people fly kites. It has also been noticed that many people use metal coated Manjha to make it stronger. When this metal coated manjha comes in contact with live wires it causes tripping resulting in blackout of the area fed by the affected line and can cause serious injuries to the kite flyers or even may result in death of the person,” said Delhi Transco CMD Padmini Singla .

Tripping of a single 33/66 KV line can disrupt power supply to over 10,000 consumers and takes about two hours to repair the fault,” a BSES discoms spokesperson in the city said. Disrupting power supply and causing damage to power equipment is punishable under the law. “Each year, there are several instances of kite-flying related trippings. Last year, there were 12 instances of kite-flying related trappings in BSES’ area.” he said.

Mumbai: The beleaguered Videocon Group has admitted to stupendous outstandings to various lenders – public and private – amounting to over Rs 90,000 crore, making it perhaps the biggest corporate bankruptcy case in Indian banking history, official sources said on Thursday. The two main group companies – Videocon Industries Ltd (VIL) and Videocon Telecommunication Ltd. (VTL) – owe Rs.59,451.87 crore and Rs.26,673.81 crore, respectively or a staggering Rs.86,125.68 crore to Indian banks, led by the State Bank of India (SBI).

Interestingly, even the Group promoters – Venugopal Dhoot, Pradipkumar Dhoot and Rajkumar Dhoot – have also filed claims of Rs.57,823.24 crores on the basis of personal guarantees provided by them for various facilities availed/guaranteed by VIL, which are under evaluation. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday The VTL has also claimed Rs.17,86,94,69,659 from VIL on which there is no dispute and has been accepted in toto. This and other data has been uploaded by the company’s Resolution Professional (RP) on its website today for varing periods ranging from November 2018 to January 2019. Industry sources say this will be the biggest private sector bankruptcy in India after the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code was introduced in 2016 for debt resolution – with wide-ranging ramifications for both the corporate world and the banking sector. Last year, the company was sent by the SBI to the National Company Law Tribunal after the Dhoot-family owned company defaulted on its loans. As per the IBC regulations, the company’s board of directors has been suspended and a RP appointed to manage its routine daily operations. Revealing the figures of claims, VIL has named a whopping 54 Indian and foreign banks, financial institutions and even a cooperative bank to whom it owes a staggering Rs 59,451.87 crore. Against this, claims of Rs.57,443.62 crore have been admitted while claims of Rs 1,149.57 crore have been rejected and those worth Rs.782.24 crore are being verified. There’s the ICICI Bank with a claim of Rs 3,318.08 crore on VIL and another Rs 1,439 crore on VTL. It may be recalled that in January this year, the CBI had booked the then ICICI Bank Managing Director and CEO Chanda Kochhar, her husband Deepak Kochhar, VIL’s Venugopal Dhoot and others, in an alleged quid pro quo loan scam, for criminal conspiracy and cheating. Later that month, Chanda Kochhar quit but in a drastic action, she was sacked by the bank which also revoked all her entitlements and appointed a new COO, Sandeep Bakshi, in her place. On January 31, the Justice B.N. Shrikrishna Committee appointed to probe the scam found her guilty of flouting the ICICI Bank’s Code of Conduct as she failed to discharge her fiduciary functions to rescue herself to avoid any conflict of interest. Among the claims of VIL’s 54 lenders are 34 banks with SBI making the biggest claim of Rs.11,175.25 crore; from VTL’s total 34 lenders, SBI has claimed the highest amount of Rs 4,605.15 crore. From VIL, the second highest claimant is IDBI with Rs 9,561.67 crore crore. From VTL, the Central Bank of India is the second biggest claimant with Rs 3,073.16 crore. From VIL, the Latur Urban Cooperative Bank (Maharashtra) is the lowest claimant with Rs 33 lakh and from VTL, the lowest claim has been submitted by Bank of Maharashtra for Rs 21.13 crore.
