(Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)When Bo Schembechler arrived at Michigan in 1969, he enacted a rallying cry that has now become the slogan for the Wolverines’ football program. “Those who stay will be champions!”If Michigan has a catch phrase, that’s it. Those six words have become synonymous with the Wolverines and are seen all over Ann Arbor, Mich. It appears the Texas football program likes the slogan. Bedford on perseverance: “Those who stay will be champions, on and off the football field, when it’s all said and done.”— Longhorn_FB (@Longhorn_FB) August 14, 2015That phrase was trademarked by Schembechler Enterprises, LLC.

Canada will get no warning next time we strike says Mohawk

first_img(Above YouTube video done in response to previous linking by Canadian authorities of First Nations activists to terrorists. Video by independent filmmaker Jay Cardinal Villeneuve. Views do not represent editorial position of APTN National News)By Jorge BarreraAPTN National NewsThe Canadian government won’t get any warning the next time it faces a major strike against its economy of the scale witnessed in 2007 when Mohawks from Tyendinaga shut down rail-lines and one of Canada’s busiest highways for several hours, according to one of the Mohawks involved in the event.The blockade caused about $100 million in “economic damage,” according to a 2008 “secret” Canadian Security Intelligence Service memo obtained under the Access to Information Act by two academics.Tyendinaga Mohawk Shawn Brant, who has done jail time over various blockades, said the strategy has changed among some militants who previously gave ample warnings about planned actions.“We gave the government and society every opportunity. We showed our faces, we didn’t hide anything and the response was a brush off and continued indignation against our people,” said Brant. “There is a movement that is developing that isn’t…giving the same opportunity for people to have input. It is simply going to…unfold and people are going to say, ‘Where the hell did it come from?’”Brant and several other Mohawks were involved in the June 29, 2007, National Day of Action blockade of Hwy 401 between Ottawa and Toronto. They also blocked rail lines crossing Tyendinaga Mohawk territory near Belleville, Ont.The rail blockade stopped the movement of about 25 freight trains and 22 passenger trains.The Assembly of First Nations called for the Day of Action, but distanced itself from the Mohawks’ actions.“Sabotage of critical infrastructure was a major concern in connection with the 2007 Day of Action,” according to the CSIS memo, which discussed how the threat of sabotage had changed from the Cold War era to the present day.The document, written by former CSIS director of operations Charles Bisson, was part of a batch of intelligence files obtained by Queen’s University doctoral candidate Jeffrey Monaghan and Kevin Walby, an assistant professor from the University of Victoria.The files, dating from 2005 to 2009, include a list of perceived terror threats against Canada compiled by the Integrated Threat Assessment Centre (ITAC), which includes participation from CSIS, the RCMP, Canada Border Services Agency, Public Safety, Department of National Defence, and other agencies.The list of threats includes “Aboriginal extremists,” along with Al Qaeda-linked terrorists, Hezbollah-linked terrorists, home-grown Islamic terrorists, the Tamil Tigers, Quebec separatists, “lone wolf” operatives and “multi-issue extremists” like environmentalists, anti-capitalists and animal rights activists.The ITAC list is included in several reports titled, The Threat from Terrorists and Extremists.The reports note that the vast majority of conflicts between Canada and First Nations “are successfully resolved by peaceful means.”The examples of conflicts cited in the documents include the 1990 Oka crisis, the 1995 Ipperwash occupation in Ontario, the 2006 Six Nations land reclamation in Caledonia, Ont., and the 2009 shut-down of the Canada-U.S. border-crossing by authorities after Akwesasne residents refused to allow armed border guards on their territory.“Disputes over a range of issues including, among other things, land claims, natural resources, self-governance, environmental concerns and social services have resulted in Aboriginal protests that have occasionally turned violent,” the ITAC reports note.The ITAC documents also note that, “multi-issue extremists and Aboriginal extremists may pursue common causes and both groups have demonstrated the intent and the capability to carry out attacks against critical infrastructure in Canada.”Brant says it doesn’t concern him to know Canadian authorities include First Nations people as potential terror threats.“I am proud that they put us in that category and it makes feel that we are working to achieve something,” said Brant. “When we have women that are going missing everyday and when we have communities that don’t have access to clean drinking water and our women and children are suffering, then we should be terrorists. If we have to take actions to bring out some concrete resolutions and changes to our society and our people, then that is what we have to be doing.”Former Manitoba First Nation Chief Terry Nelson also makes an appearance in Bisson’s heavily redacted CSIS memo, which is separate from the ITAC assessments. A partially redacted line references someone raising the “possibility of sabotage that could target a planned oil pipeline project in Manitoba.”Nelson, who authored the Day of Action AFN resolution, said he remembers referring at the time to an Enbridge U.S. oil pipeline explosion in November 2007, that killed two workers who were repairing a leak.“All we were saying is that the pipelines were essential and we never wanted to see any type of activism like,” said Nelson. “It is possible, but I don’t think anyone said anything specific that we are going to blow up the pipeline. That was never our intention.”Nelson said authorities have reason to be worried.“They should be concerned with the way they are treating us,” said Nelson. “The only reason it is a threat is because they created the economics of desperate people. If they had given the Indigenous people a little bit of hope that they are serious about settling the issues, then they wouldn’t have that threat which is a creation of their own policies.”Nelson is currently preparing to request an audience with the Iranian parliament. He is also planning on leading a caravan from Winnipeg to Ottawa to deliver information to embassies about the situation of First Nations people in [email protected]@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

West Moberly First Nation will continue to fight Site C

first_imgIn a release late yesterday, B.C. Hydro’s President and Chief Operating Officer, Chris O’Riley said, “BC Hydro has reached benefit agreements with the majority of First Nations that we consult with on Site C. We remain committed to working with Indigenous communities to build relationships that respect their interests.”Chief Roland Willson of the West Moberly First Nation said, “We have every intention of proceeding to trial, and will be deciding whether an appeal of this judgement is necessary as well.”“The Court may have chosen not to suspend work on the dam, but that doesn’t mean this Project will ever be completed. As the 200 evacuees at Old Fort could tell you, the unstable north banks of the Peace River may have other plans,” said Chief Tsakoza of the Prophet River First Nation.The West Moberly and Prophet River First Nations applied for a complete stoppage to work on the dam, or for work to stop in so-called “critical areas” for a period of 18 months – which is the period of time that an expedited trial for the treaty infringement suit is estimated to take.Below is a full copy of the judgement released Wednesday FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Chief Roland Willson of the West Moberly First Nation says they will proceed to trial over the Site C dam.A court injunction to stop work at the Site C Dam was dismissed Wednesday by B.C. Supreme Court. In the decision released by Justice Warren Milman, the Judge said the injunction would cause more harm to B.C. Hydro, ratepayers and other project stakeholders than it would to the West Moberly First Nation.Justice Milman also said, “I have not concluded that West Moberly’s case is fairly strong.” The judgement also announced a trial looking at Treaty 8 rights should start in 2019 and must be completed before the Site C Reservoir is flooded in 2023.last_img read more

Sabarimala temple to open on March 11 for 10 day festival

first_imgThiruvananthapuram: The Sabarimala temple will open for the annual temple festival for 10 days, starting from March 11. A release issued by the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB), which administers the shrine, said that head priest Kandararu Rajeevaru would preside over the temple opening ceremony. The festival will end on March 21. The temple will also get a new gold-plated door for the sanctum sanctorum when the hill shrine opens for the festival tomorrow. Also Read – Squadrons which participated in Balakot air strike awarded citations on IAF Day The existing door, which developed tiny cracks, would be replaced with the new one. The holy door, made of quality teak wood, has been plated with at least four kilograms of gold after engraving and embossing it with copper. A group of Sabarimala devotees, led by one Unni Namboothiri, met the expenses of the new door as an offering to the presiding deity, TDB president A Padmakumar had said. “The new door is designed in such a way that the gold platings can be removed if the door suffers any damage in course of time,” the TDB chief had said. The Lord Ayyappa Temple had recently witnessed frenzied protests by devotees opposing the implementation of the landmark September 28 Supreme Court verdict permitting women of all age groups into the temple.last_img read more

Mens hockey Ohio State in a New York state of mind at

Members of Ohio State’s men’s ice hockey team celebrate a goal by freshman forward Tanner Laczynski (9) in the third period of the Buckeye’s game against Bowling Green on Oct. 22. The Buckeyes won 6-1. Credit: Breanna Crye | For The LanternThe Ohio State men’s hockey team has put together two straight weeks of play that have prompted coach Steve Rohlik to say he’s “disappointed” in the outcomes. The Buckeyes are 1-1-2 in its last four games and are ranked No. 14 in the country. But it’s not the record that has Rohlik and the team not living up to the standards they set in the offseason, it’s the ability to execute on the penalty kill and finish scoring chances.On Saturday against the University of Connecticut Huskies, OSU followed up a comeback win on Friday with 49 shots on net. However, the back end of the weekend double-header ended in a 3-3 draw.“We probably played our best game of the year, besides the Denver game, as a team, and I think we felt pretty good about that,” Rohlik said. “That’s by far the most quality chances — and I’m talking point-blank chances — and we just didn’t finish.”The Buckeyes allowed two goals in the first period last Saturday, both were power-play goals. OSU ranks last in penalty kill in the NCAA, killing off only 72 percent of opponents’ power-play. Rohlik has said since the beginning of the season that wins and losses for the Scarlet and Gray will be decided on the play of the special teams. OSU’s power play ranks near the top of the NCAA, but Rohlik insists that OSU has work to do on that end as well.“Special teams … it’s going to make or break you and eventually it’s going to catch up to you,” he said. “Certainly right now we have to correct some things.”The Buckeyes travel to Troy, New York, this week for a two-game series against the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. OSU senior goaltender Christian Frey will make the trip, having started in his first two games since being injured for nearly a month. Frey only practiced a few days before Rohlik placed him between the pipes against UConn.Frey faced 42 shots in two games and made 35 saves.Frey told The Lantern that he suffered a groin strain during the team’s second regular-season game against Air Force in the beginning of October. He underwent treatment for four to six weeks before returning to the ice for practice. Now with a full week of practice under his belt, Frey is expected to start in net for the Buckeyes on Friday night.“It was preventative too. It’s early in the season, if I needed to come back earlier, I probably could’ve battled through it,” Frey said. “I felt really good this week in practice so hopefully this will be a good week. I feel like I’m 100 percent healthy.”RPIThe RPI Engineers are 2-8-1 in the 2016-17 campaign with a minus-14 goal differential. The Engineers also rank among the worst defenses in the NCAA having allowed 3.55 goals per game. The Buckeyes lead the nation with 4.55 goals per game, which has been a safety blanket for the lack of production on the penalty-kill unit thus far.On special teams, RPI junior defenseman Jared Wilson is tied for second in the nation with four power-play goals on the season, while senior forward Riley Bourbonnais ranks among the top in shorthanded goals. The RPI penalty kill is successful almost 90 percent of the time, which supports Rohlik’s claim that the game will be won on special teams.Senior forward, and team captain, Nick Schilkey continues to be a nightmare for opposing defenses. Schilkey collected the Big Ten Conference’s first star of the week after a five-point week against UConn, including the game-winning goal last Friday. He is second in the country in goals scored, tied first on the team in points and owns a rating of plus-12. Schilkey said with the team having the week off after RPI, this is a great opportunity for the team to empty the tank and make a statement.“Right now we have a good start as a team right now and the points are coming along, but we just got to stay focused and keep working hard,” he said. read more
