The first, which took home the silver “Best Use of Membership Political Mail–Democrat,” was a campaign for Mark Udall, the former Colorado senator. The ad, done in conjunction with the Mountain West Credit Union Association (MWCUA), portrays Udall as a superhero fighting for credit union members.”He may not wear a cape, but Mark Udall is a hero when it comes to fighting for Credit Union members,” reads the ad, which was sent to MWCUA credit union members. continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

College football Week 12 primer: Heisman Watch, upset picks, predictions and more

first_imgThe Tigers have a future No. 1 pick at quarterback in Trevor Lawrence, an All-American tailback in Travis Etienne who averages 8.9 yards per carry, a receiver who averages 20.4 yards per catch in Tee Higgins and a defense led by the multi-talented Isaiah Simmons. Did we mention they have won 25 straight games?  Clemson might play in the ACC, but they aren’t like the other teams in the ACC. They also are a victim of a close 21-20 victory on Sept. 28 against North Carolina. One more time: The Tigers won the game.   The Tigers at +300 to win a national championship might be a steal. No. 23 Navy meets No. 16 Notre Dame (2:30 p.m., NBC) in the first of those matchups. No. 4 Georgia travels to No. 12 Auburn (3:30 p.m., CBS) in the afternoon slot along with a matchup between No. 8 Minnesota and No. 20 Iowa (4 p.m., FOX). The prime-time spotlight shines on the Big 12 with No. 10 Oklahoma at No. 13 Baylor (7:30 p.m., ABC).  WEEK 12 PICKS: Straight up | Against the spreadNo. 5 Georgia travels to No. 13 Auburn (3:30 p.m., CBS) in the biggest SEC game of the week, and No. 7 Minnesota is an underdog at No. 23 Iowa (4 p.m., FOX). No. 12 Baylor puts its unbeaten record on the line against No. 10 Oklahoma (7:30 p.m., ABC) in the primetime slot. Every week, Sporting News will survey the landscape looking for Heisman contenders, coaches on the spot, upset alerts and other trends. With that in mind, get ready for Week 12:  Heisman watch   LSU’s Joe Burrow took control of the Heisman Trophy race after hitting 31 of 39 passes for 393 yards and rushing for 64 more yards in a 46-41 victory against Alabama last Saturday. That effectively knocked Tua Tagovailoa and the rest of the field into a race for second. Ohio State’s Chase Young won’t be on the field in Week 12, so this is an opportunity for Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts to firm up a spot as a finalist.  Hurts still leads all FBS quarterbacks with a 94.1 QBR, and he ranks second in the FBS in total offense at 401.2 yards per game. Burrow is third at 376.3. Hurts by no means will catch Burrow with a victory at Baylor, but it’s still a chance to stay in the Heisman vote and continue the never-ending debate with Tagovailoa.  Who is second on your ballot right now?  Coach on the spot  Penn State is coming off a 31-26 loss at Minnesota, and the Nittany Lions cannot afford to look ahead to next week’s noon showdown with No. 2 Ohio State.  Not with Indiana coming to Happy Valley. James Franklin can’t lose this game. The Nittany Lions are 5-6 against teams ranked in the AP Top 25 since 2017, and the Hoosiers are No. 24. Indiana is 0-10 at Beaver Stadium, however.  The Nittany Lions must win out to get to the College Football Playoff, but a loss here and next win in Columbus would be devastating for a program on the rise.Upset alert   We will give you three doors to choose from:  Can Auburn throw a wrench into the Playoff race by knocking off Georgia at Jordan-Hare Stadium? The Tigers won the last meeting 40-17 in 2017 and are 7-1 ATS as home underdogs under Gus Malzahn. That’s a tough spot for the Bulldogs.  Iowa beat No. 2 Michigan at Kinnick Stadium on Nov. 12, 2016, then beat No. 3 Ohio State in the same place on Nov. 4, 2017. Will Kirk Ferentz beat another top-10 team at home for the third time in four seasons with Minnesota coming to down?  Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly is 7-2 against Navy, but he has never lost to the Midshipmen in South Bend. Navy won at Notre Dame Stadium in 2007 and 2009, however, and they can slow the Irish’s so-so run defense down.  One of those is going to happen Saturday. We just don’t know which door to choose.  Over/under  Alabama suffered a November loss, but that will not be the defining reason as to why they would be left out of the CFP.  Of the 20 playoff participants since 2020, a total of five lost in November. That list includes Michigan State (Nov. 7, 2015), Clemson (Nov. 12, 2016), Washington (Nov. 12, 2016), Georgia (No. 11, 2017) and Alabama (Nov. 25, 2017). The Crimson Tide  There have been six undefeated teams, too, and among other nine playoff teams seven lost in October and two lost in September. That says it’s still better to lose early, but it really does not matter if you don’t lose twice.  Think about it …   Clemson averages more points this year than last year – a slim difference of 45.3 to 44.3 – and is giving up fewer points than last year – 11.5 to 13.1 – and yet they are considered a rung below LSU and Ohio State.   Week 12 of the college football season has arrived, and there are just three more weeks until the College Football Playoff pairings are revealed.  There are four matchups involving teams ranked in the College Football Playoff rankings.  last_img read more

Education key to developing responsible citizens

first_img…education workshop hearsOfficials from the Education Ministry and other educational institutions in Guyana are placing more emphasis on the importance of education in the lives of students as well as the need for teachers to pay attention to the critical requirements for the creation of responsible citizens.These issues were tackled at the educational leadership conference, hosted by the Education Ministry earlier this week, by three panellists – the Chief Education Officer, Marcel Hutson; Vice Chancellor of the University of Guyana (UG) andChief Education Officer Marcel HutsonMarla Bernard.The Chief Education Officer, during his remarks, stressed on the roles that education played in society, surpassing the acquisition of formal education. While being educated at the various levels, there are other qualities that should be inculcated, with teachers expected to exploit and develop these with their students.“A critical role of education is that of socialisation. That has to do with training and teaching so that persons can actually develop the right kind of attitudes and behaviours that would actually pass the change that we want to see in society,” Hutson stated.“It also has to do with fitting people into society so that they could be citizens that are responsible, citizens that are caring and citizens that are productive,” he added.Furthermore, Professor Ivelaw Griffith addressed the room of educators from several administrative regions in Guyana, and explained that this could be acquired through modifications in the way formal classroom sessions were conducted, while establishing a sense that excellence should be the most important practice.“So many of our students – whether primary, secondary or tertiary – come from circumstances where there are so many insufficiencies: rental, single parents, insufficient money (and) food and it is very often easy to be comfortable with just getting on. It is very easy to get by. Our responsibility is not to be in the mode of allowing ourselves to just be that ‘get by’. We need to be aspiring [to] excellence,” the Vice Chancellor said.This, he stated, is one of the key values which will result in the production of good citizens of Guyana.The panel of speakers was also engaged in discussion generated by questions from the various regional officers.Furthermore, the educators were also briefed on other aspects of educational development, which they are expected to convey to other teachers of their respective regions. With a three-day workshop on formal training, which commenced on Monday, the Ministry is hoping that this will aid in the improvement of the quality of education in schools countrywide.last_img read more
