first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Sept. 30, 2016 For most students, Family Weekend at the University of Colorado will involve some variation of a similar pattern: breakfast at one of their favorite local hangouts, a sightseeing drive, then a trip to Folsom Field in time for Saturday’s 12:30 Buffs game against visiting Oregon State.But that’s not how CU senior Alex Kelley’s day will go.Instead, Kelley — the starting center for the 3-1 Buffs — will see his morning begin with a wakeup call at the team hotel, followed by team meetings and a pregame meal. He’ll then ride the team bus to Folsom Field in time for the team stroll down the Buff Walk, suit up, and after running onto the field behind Ralphie, will prepare to do battle with the Beavers.His parents will understand. Kelley’s father, Karry Kelley, is no stranger to his son’s strict schedule in preparation for game time. Nearly 40 years ago, he was in his the same position as his son when he lettered four times for the Buffs from 1976-1979 as an offensive tackle.Asked what it means to play for the same school as his father, Kelley said: “It means a lot. I was raised to be a Buff because of my dad and I’m glad I’m here. And it means all the more to me because of the success we’re having this season and we’re finally doing good.”Kelley also noted that his dad remains a big Buffs fan.“He’s the biggest fan I see up there (in the stands) every weekend,” Kelley said. “Every time I look up I see him jumping around, screaming, high-fiving people, and it’s awesome.”But if you think there is any type of friendly competition between father and son, think again.“He is way better than I ever was,” said his dad, Karry. “It’s really been fun to see him excel.”And excel he has. Kelley, from San Diego, Calif., played for Vista High School and was one of California’s top recruits at the time. After redshirting his freshman year, he saw action in all 12 games during his redshirt freshman year at CU. He moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore and has held onto that spot ever since, including this year’s season opener against Colorado State.Remember that game? You may remember that the first Buffalo to score a touchdown in that game — also the first CU touchdown of the season — was Kelley,  a feat that hadn’t been accomplished by a lineman for Colorado since Oct. 28, 1995.“My dad didn’t know I scored,” Kelley said about his dad’s reaction. “He didn’t know I scored until my brother texted him – but after he heard he was super excited.”Kelley’s mom, Charlyn, will also be at Folsom Field for Saturday’s game. She enjoys watching her son’s success on the field.“My mom loves the games,” Kelley said. “She’s probably my biggest critic though – whatever success we have she’s just, ‘All right, just keep working, keep doing what you’re doing – you don’t want it to get into your head’. She’s the one who really brings me down to earth.”Staying down to earth is no issue for Kelley who is grateful to be a part of a program that his father once was a part of.“I grew up a CU Buffs fan, watching the games every Saturday with my dad,” Kelley said. “To have the opportunity to come here is amazing. I have a picture in my room of me, my dad and my two brothers all in football stances in (Folsom) stadium. I was like 8 years old. It’s my dream school.”Categories:AthleticsCampus Communitylast_img read more

first_imgHomeLifeHomeless youth realize their dreams through photography Oct. 28, 2017 at 8:13 amLifeNewsHomeless youth realize their dreams through photographyKate Cagle4 years agobriefscity of santa monica Kate CagleDaily Press Staff WriterIn an age where every dinner plate, sunset and palm tree has an equal chance of being photographed by a smartphone and shared on Instagram, it’s hard to fathom how a single picture of a building can change a life.But that’s exactly what it did for Brittnie Pemberton.She snapped the photo on the San Diego State University campus ten years ago she was just ten-years-old and homeless. Her parents had never been to college and the family was living in a shelter in San Diego. At the time, Brittnie’s mom thought the family’s future looked pretty bleak.“If Pictures of Hope had never been to the shelter where we were staying she never would have gone to college,” Pemberton’s mother, Tanya said in an interview with the Daily Press.The click of the shutter on a new digital camera provided by the organization cemented young Brittnie’s dream as she roamed the campus with a photography mentor. The digital image is testament to the power of visualization. The elementary school student’s goal to earn a scholarship and get to college became more real.The picture proved prescient. Brittnie is now a junior at SDSU studying psychology. She earned that scholarship after all. Her parents went to college too. Tanya now helps run the Salvation Army on 11th Street in Santa Monica.Last weekend, eleven local homeless children were given the same opportunity as Brittnie at the Upward Bound House. Pictures of Hope provided them with cameras (they get to keep) and sent them out with photography mentors all over the city to photograph their dreams.They returned with pictures that symbolized their goals in life – pictures of UCLA and SMC, snapshots of the beach and images of homes with green lawns under sunny skies where they hoped to live.“When you ask the children to share their hopes and dreams, the moms often say this is the first time the kids have even talked about them,” founder Linda Solomon said. “They’re so busy making ends meet they don‘t discuss their hopes and dreams.”Solomon says with the help of a mentor, the children suddenly feel like their dreams matter. Once they matter they become attainable. Pictures of Hope has helped children in 50 cities with the highest population of homeless children. Skinnytees sponsored the event in Santa Monica and Walgreens donated the cameras.SDSU is not the only college to offer a picture of hope child a full ride after seeing their photograph. The president of Blackburn College reached out to Solomon a few years ago and also offered to help her young photographers get through school. So far, Blackburn has granted four full rides to Pictures of Hope alumni.The Santa Monica children’s heartfelt photographs will be printed on holiday notecards that will be sold with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting Upward Bound House on 12th Street. The children will see their photographs in print for the first time when they go on display Nov. 11 at the shelter.The Upward Bound House is a non-profit organization that provides housing, supportive services and advocacy for the homeless. The House works to reduce the number of children living on the streets by helping their families access basic resources and transition into their own homes.“When you’re going through homelessness, the kids and their mothers often feel that no one even knows they are out there,” Solomon said. Once the photos go up for sale, the dreams can no longer be [email protected] :briefscity of santa monicashare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentKate CagleSenior ReporterSenior reporter for the Santa Monica Daily Pressview all postsFor George Pepper the Blacklist Goes OnHomeless youth realize their dreams through photographyYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall10 hours agoEntertainmentLifeNoteworthyTales of Two DaughtersCharles Andrews16 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson21 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter21 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor21 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press21 hours agolast_img read more

first_img0Shares0000NAIROBI, April 12- Haydn Porteous carded a dramatic eagle two at the first extra hole to edge out compatriot and friend Brandon Stone en route to his first professional title at the Barclays Kenya Open.It was another underwhelming year for Kenyans with Dismas Indiza summing up the dismal showing by firing a 75 that saw him drop from the top ten at the start of the day to shared 28th with five under 283 for the tournament. His prize takings were 1,620 euros (Sh 159,620.73) with compatriots Brian Njoroge (2 over 290) and Matthew Omondi (9 over 297) ranked 59th and joint 63rd on the final leader board with only three local golfers qualifying for the final two days of action at Karen.In the end, the tournament that has provided the launch pad to three past champions to the first Major of the season, The Masters that was being played concurrently at Augusta namely; the late Seve Ballesteros, Trevor Immelman and Ian Woosnam became an internal South African contest as Porteous and Stone outclassed the rest of the field to force extra holes.The 20 year-old from Johannesburg hit a sublime three wood from the tee to seven feet at the par four 12th in the first hole of sudden death after signing for a closing 68 at Karen Country Club to pull alongside Stone at 17 under par, having trailed by one overnight.Porteous who took charge of the leader board going into Day 3 before being supplanted by Stone on Saturday took home € 32,000 (Sh 3,153.001.99) for his win as the overnight principal bagged € 22,000 (Sh 2,167,688.87) after losing the shootout.-Strong start-Porteous made a strong start with two birdies before further gains followed at the fifth, 12th and 13th to cover dropped shots at the sixth and 14th.As for Stone, who made six birdies of his own on Sunday to card a 69, the turning point came when he racked up a double bogey at the par four 13th.That allowed Porteous back into contention, and when the pair both birdied the par five 18th, extra holes were required to decide a victor.The triumph fulfils the promise Porteous showed as an amateur, while it also earns him a first full season of Challenge Tour action.“It hasn’t sunk in just yet, but I am sure when I wake up tomorrow morning I will know exactly what I’ve done,” said Porteous, who was ranked the best amateur in South Africa before joining the paid ranks.“It was nerve-wracking out there today and certainly not boring. Brandon was two shots ahead, then I was two shots ahead, then we were even down the last and ended up both making clutch putts for birdie before the play-off. Then it was a once in a lifetime eagle,” he added.His next target is to have a season that will land him a European Tour card having aced the first European Challenge Tour event of the campaign.The South African pair may have taken much of the attention on the final day in Kenya, but there was plenty of exemplary play elsewhere in the closing 18 holes, not least from George Woolgar who signed for a 67 to finish one stroke back in third – the best performance of the Englishman’s career so far.Another Englishman, Sam Walker, was another shot back in fourth after the three-time Challenge Tour winner posted a 69 to close.-Material from europetour.com used for this report0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgMoyes tells Liverpool fans: Nothing deliberate over Ramos challenge on Salahby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United and Everton boss David Moyes insists Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos didn’t set out to injure Mohamed Salah in Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat last season.Moyes was a member of the elite UEFA technical study group that assessed the Champions League Final between Liverpool and Real Madrid.He told the Sunday Express: “One of the big points the next morning about the Champions League Final was the Sergio Ramos foul on Mo Salah. It was the key moment of the game.“Ramos was telling Salah this is the big boys’ game now and you will have to deal with that, but he wasn’t trying to deliberately dislocate his shoulder.

first_img Facebook Scaachi Koul didn’t set out to write One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter.She began working on her personal essay collection two years ago, at age 24, intending the book — which she refers to as “a catalog of misery” — to be a much lighter read. But when Koul’s editors at Doubleday Canada pushed her to dig deeper into her “garbage soul,” the underlying tenor of the book shifted.“It’s a lot about loneliness and trying to make a connection, and it’s a lot about how your history informs where you’re going,” Koul says. “I’m happy where it went, but sometimes you do need an editor to tell you that you don’t have to be glib all the time. That was a hard lesson for me.” Advertisement Advertisement Those who follow Koul’s work as an editor on BuzzFeed or on Twitter know that she’s an all-caps force who doesn’t suffer fools or anonymous online trolls gladly. The sly, cutting sarcasm — and the misery — still reverberate through One Day We’ll All Be Dead, but they’ve been tempered, leaving breathing room for Koul to share more vulnerable observations of her life and her roles as a young woman, a girlfriend, a best pal and a daughter of Indian immigrants.
