Who does the five-time national champion head coach think should be favored to win the national championship?

The Crimson Tide are probably a more-talented team, but their quarterback situation is unclear and the schedule is pretty brutal. The Tigers, meanwhile, have a Heisman Trophy contender behind center and a more manageable schedule. Who are you betting on to win it all this year?
Members of OSU womens volleyball team celebrate after a play during a game against Florida State on September 6 at St. John’s Arena. Credit: Ashley Roudebush / For The LanternThe Ohio State women’s volleyball team is looking to capture its second tournament win in a row this weekend as it heads to Brooklyn, New York, for the Blackbird Invitational.OSU (5-1) is set to take on host Long Island University Brooklyn (0-4) on Friday at 7 p.m. to kick off the tournament. The No. 15 Buckeyes are then scheduled to take on two currently undefeated teams on Saturday, playing Syracuse (5-0) at 10 a.m. and No. 13 Arizona (6-0) at 5 p.m.The Buckeyes are riding a five-match winning streak and are coming off a tournament win on their home floor at St. John Arena, defeating then-No. 14 Florida State twice and Northern Illinois once.Coach Geoff Carlston was happy with the way his team stayed steady and worked together, and said he hopes it carries over to this weekend.“I thought we really played well as a unit this weekend,” he said. “Everyone impacted our team and our wins. In that sense, I think we feel really good about the culture we’ve created.”Carlston said his team has confidence after sweeping the Sports Imports D.C. Koehl Classic tournament, but his players are trying to remain grounded as they prepare for conference play.“We really try to stay so in the moment because you’re going to have big wins and big losses in the Big Ten,” he said. “Then the next day, you have to be playing another top 25 team.”Sophomore outside hitter Luisa Schirmer echoed the sentiments of her coach when she described the team as confident but focused as it heads into another important set of games.“Two undefeated teams are coming into the tournament, so we’re going to have to play our best again,” Schirmer said. “We can’t let our confidence overcloud how hard we’re going to have to work.”Keys to victoryHeading into the Blackbird Invitational, senior outside hitter Katie Mitchell said the key will be the intensity of the back-row defenders.“I thought our back-row defenders did a great job of scrapping,” she said. “I mean, they picked up everything that you could possibly throw at them.”In the D.C. Koehl Classic, junior libero Valeria León had 58 digs en route to a second straight all-tournament performance, while sophomore defensive specialist Kalisha Goree added 24.Mitchell also said the presence of the team’s middle blockers was huge for the OSU offense last weekend and she hoped they continue their high level of play.“Having the middles as a constant presence makes the other teams worry about them a little bit more than they usually do, and that opens up our offense,” she said.Sandbothe earns more honorsOne of the middle blockers to whom Mitchell was referring is junior Taylor Sandbothe, who was named a Big Ten co-player of the week alongside sophomore middle blocker Haleigh Washington of Penn State.“She played at another level this weekend and that’s what I talked to her about,” Carlston said. “And it wasn’t just the game, it was her persona, her personality, how she played the game.”Sandbothe was also named the D.C. Koehl Classic tournament MVP after picking up 42 kills on a .521 attack percentage, along with 16 blocks and three aces.What’s next?OSU will wrap up its nonconference schedule by playing in the Golden Grizzlies Invitational in Rochester, Michigan, on Sept. 18 and 19.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Haiti, March 4, 2018 – Port-au-Prince -The Bahamas’ role in the region is rapidly moving towards one of “more leadership” because of the country’s ability to rapidly respond in times of natural disasters such as Hurricanes, Minister of Foreign Affairs the Hon. Darren Henfield said Tuesday.Minister Henfield introduced to the Conference the agenda item on Tourism and other issues discussed by Heads of Government on Day Two, which included Air Transportation Issues and Blacklisting and Derisking.Minister Henfield, who took over the Chair as Head of Delegation for The Bahamas following Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert A. Minnis’ departure for New Providence Monday night, said Prime Minister Minnis’ position as the Head of Government of the Caribbean Community responsible for tourism, also carried tremendous significance.“It is important that the Prime Minister is playing a role in the quasi-Cabinet, responsible for Tourism,” Minister Henfield said.Citing the Minnis Administration’s decision to assist Dominica in the aftermath of hurricane devastation last year, the Foreign Affairs Minister said The Bahamas’ ability to respond to natural disasters such as the one in Dominica improves the country’s position regionally.“We have a very good Defence Force and utilities to be able to respond in times of natural disaster and I think that always improves your influence and the way the other countries look at you,” Minister Henfield said.“We sent the HMBS Lawrence Major to Dominica with Defence Force personnel onboard. We had medical doctors on board; we also had firefighters from the Royal Bahamas Police Force onboard to assist Dominica during their time of need.“When you put your money where your mouth is in responding, (countries tend to look up to you.) Now raising the issue of money, you know it is tight all across the region, but you do what you can to assist where you can. In fact, that is the very nature of this body of states called CARICOM and the Caribbean Community, to be responsive to each other’s needs.”Minister Henfield and Minister of Tourism and Aviation, the Hon. Dionisio D’Aguilar, both addressed Tuesday’s Plenary Session on Tourism. Mr. Henfield delivered The Bahamas’ Opening Statement while Mr. D’Aguilar made a PowerPoint Presentation.“The Paper was very well received this morning. The technocrats from the Caribbean Tourism Office (CTO) and the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) were here and the presentation was very well received; they were all asking for it and we intend to lay it on the table here and give it to them,” Minister Henfield said.“We also intend to send out the presentation in which everybody is raving about the commercial that was shown here this morning encapsulating the entire Caribbean region and what it offers, and so I think we are on the right path.”By: Matt Maura (BIS)Photo Caption: The Hon Darren Henfield, Minister of Foreign Affairs, leads The Bahamas’ Delegation on the second day of the 29th Inter-Sessional Meeting of the Conference of Heads of the Caribbean Community in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on 27 February.

Renowned photographer Shahidul Alam speaks at Vent House by Amnesty International at EMK Center in Dhaka on 4 May 2019. Photo: CollectedAmnesty International’s South Asia campaigner Saad Hammadi on Saturday said people will naturally be afraid of speaking when they do not know what they say or write may constitute an offence.Such feelings breed resentment and are not healthy for a country’s social development, he observed.He made the observation at the first ever campaign event by Amnesty International in Dhaka.Amnesty International in partnership with the Edward M Kennedy Center hosted the campaign event of arts and performances in defence of freedom of expression.The event was organised in commemoration of the World Press Freedom Day, reflected on the attacks on media and online platforms, intrusion of privacy and repressive laws which have been used against people’s legitimate rights to freedom of expression.“We have noticed that newspaper editors in Bangladesh have become extremely careful about publishing stories and editorials, and even refrain from publishing columns and stories due to fear of reprisals,” said Saad Hammadi.“The event today is part of Amnesty International’s continued campaign for reclaiming freedom, which includes the right to freedom of expression in countries where people are met with heavy punishment for peacefully sharing opinions,” he said.Saad Hammadi said, “People cannot freely express themselves without protection from the state. Censorship of information and the fear of reprisals dwindles quality of life, integrity and their accountability to the public.”Vent House by Amnesty International brought together comedians, cartoonists, journalists, bloggers, musicians, poets, activists and live performance artistes to promote freedom of expression and reflect on the role that the government and people can play with respect to protecting this right.The event also launched hashtag campaign #YoursPeacefully to remind the government that peaceful exercise of freedom of expression must not be criminalised.Celebrated photographer Shahidul Alam, standup comedians Yamin Khan and Ahmad Ashik, cartoonist Syed Rashad Imam Tanmoy, journalists Shuprova Tasneem, Ayreen Khan, Syed Tashfin Chowhdury, media personality Iresh Zaker, blogger and activist Fahmidul Haq, artists Liza Hasan, Reetu Sattar, Sayeef Mahmud and Aabir Khalid signed up for the Amnesty campaign event.Performers and discussants also included indigenous rights activist and musician Sham Sagor Mankin, singer and songwriter Armeen Musa and her band Ghashforing Choir, young poetry collective The Versemongers and activist Samina Luthfa Nitra.Amnesty International has, in different parts of the world, been supported by a wide range of artistes, including Coldplay, Russell Brand, Jimmy Carr, Jon Stewart, John Oliver, Stephen Colbert among a host of international artists in defence of freedom of expression around the world. The Dhaka event is the first time supporters and members of Amnesty International in Bangladesh have come together along with members of the international community.
