SMC establishes Comedy Creators improv club

first_imgSaint Mary’s recently established an improvisational club called Comedy Creators, or C-Squared.  This club stands as the new sister club to the Notre Dame Humor Artists, co-creator and junior Megan Steron said.  The founders’ love for making others laugh inspired the club, Steron said.  “Comedy Creators was developed to be a low-key, approachable and self-esteem-building opportunity for anyone interested – with or without experience,” Steron said.  “It is a misconception that improv is extremely difficult and scary, so I wanted to diminish that idea.”  Steron said there is a strict open-door policy at C-Squared, as well as a good community environment. The meetings are started with warm-ups and simple exercises to make the improv games easier for their new attendees. “It does not matter if your schedule only allows you to come once a month, for an hour only, or even the last 30 minutes,” Steron said. “We are an optional stress reliever.” Junior and C-Squared member Payton Moore said she has thoroughly enjoyed the club so far, since it is a fun way to expand her acting skills.  “There is no such thing as a stupid idea or a failed improv here,” Moore said. “It isn’t about performance; it is about improvement and having fun. Feeling stressed? Go to Comedy Creators. Feeling sad? Go to Comedy Creators. You really can’t go wrong by attending.” Junior Claire Stewart said the best aspect of the club is the overall atmosphere.  “The impression is meant to be silly, goofy, undignified and most importantly, wonderful,” Stewart said.  Freshman Kimberly Orlando said attempting  improv was scary at first, but the positive atmosphere of the club allowed her to step out of her comfort zone and open up to a new community on campus. “I saw the booth for Comedy Creators and Megan [Steron] explained it to me as being a bunch of students having fun and playing improv games like those seen in ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’” Orlando said. “The first meeting, I was a little nervous, but after a few ice-breakers, everyone opened up and was having a lot of fun.” Orlando said the meetings are a good, alternative way to relieve stress. “The whole meeting was two hours of games and laughing, which is pretty awesome,” she said. “Some people put it all out there, and no one was judged for how far they went. It’s just a fun way to let loose for a few hours and get over the stresses of tests and upcoming midterms.” Contact Chelsey Fattal at [email protected]last_img read more

Black Cats bring in Reveillere

first_imgFormer France international Anthony Reveillere has joined Sunderland for the remainder of the season, the club have confirmed. Press Association The 34-year-old full-back, who has been training with the Black Cats in recent weeks, is a free agent after being released by Italian side Napoli during the summer. Reveillere began his career at Rennes, but enjoyed his most successful spell with Lyon, for whom he made almost 300 appearances and won five Ligue 1 titles. center_img He has been drafted in by head coach Gus Poyet, whose already meagre defensive resources have been stretched by an injury to summer signing Billy Jones. Reveillere, who will wear the number 15 shirt, could go straight into the squad for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Arsenal at the Stadium of Light, provided his international clearance is received in time, as Poyet’s men attempt to bounce back from their 8-0 mauling at Southampton. last_img read more

Pacesetters remain unbeaten behind Gillis’ shooting

first_img… Half Mile Bulls bounce backBEHIND the shooting of Stephan Gillis, Pacesetters chalked their second win in this year’s Guyana Amateur Basketball Federation (GABF) National Club Championships, with an entertaining 74-68 victory over Plaisance Guardians, when the tournament continued on Wednesday at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall with a double-header.Pacesetters’ Stephan Gillis scores one of his four three-pointers on the night against Guardians.Half Mile Bulls rebounded from their 94-55 opening night’s loss to Bounty Colts, and emerged 81-53 winners over Rose Hall Jammers, thanks to a ‘double-double’ (31 points, 10 rebounds) performance by Michael Turner.Coming into the game, Rose Hall Jammers had the perfect start in the tournament when they came out 64-60 winners over Ravens and were hoping to carry over their sensational play in the showdown with the Linden side (Bulls).However, the Bulls came to Georgetown ready to play and were led by Turner’s ‘two-way’ game and the shooting of Terron Welch.Welch, who ended the game with 20 points, scorched the Jammers in the first half, leading the Bulls to a 23-14 first period score, and 46-22 at the end of the first half.Combining for 51 on the night, Turner and Welch rallied the Bulls to a great third quarter, where they out-scored the Jammers 23-14, to head into the final stanza leading 69-36.Michael King, who was the Berbice team’s best performer on the night, fought hard for his 12 points and the Bulls in the fourth quarter had already taken their feet off the pedal as they cruised to a well-deserved win.Meanwhile, the night’s second game was entertaining from the first toss of the ball, despite Pacesetters being in control throughout the night.With Gillis and emerging star Nathan Saul causing trouble in the back court for the Junior Hercules-coached Guardians, Pacesetters raced to a 20-8 lead in the first quarter but the Plaisance team rebounded well in the second (period) to enter the second half still trailing 26-36.Power forward Trenton Woolford (15) and point guard Colwin Nurse (13), along with the lanky Akeem Crandon (13) tried valiantly to keep the Guardians in the game upon the resumption of the second half, but Gillis and Saul had already found a groove.Pacesetters led 54-40 at the start of the final quarter and though the Guardians had a 24-point quarter, as compared to the winning side’s 22, it was not enough to see them pick up their first win, having lost 59-82 to Victory Valley Royals on night one.The tournament will continue tonight, with a Linden invasion, when Bounty Colts take on Amelia’s Ward Jets from 19:00hrs and Victory Valley Royals oppose Retrieve Raiders in the second game.last_img read more

Keith’s Keys: In sports journalism, luck is what you make of it

first_imgLife is all about luck. If you want to convince me otherwise, I would invite you over, sit you down, show you the 2006 American League Championship Series and have you explain to me how the Detroit Tigers’ run to the World Series wasn’t luck. Much like the players on the diamond — including Magglio Ordóñez — journalists sometimes get lucky. And just like luck works in favor of the Tigers, sometimes journalists get unlucky, too. This conversation might sound eerily similar to something you might hear along 28th Street from a group of students who claim, “They didn’t just get in because their parents went here.” But I implore you to stick around and listen to the other side of journalism politics. This past weekend, I was on Instagram (as usual) and I came across the profile of a woman who is the daughter of one of the Los Angeles Rams’ assistant coaches. For background, she works at NFL Network and Fox Sports as a production assistant, and also happens to interview Rams players from time to time. She was posting about how there are people out there who make her feel bad for getting access to the Rams simply because her father is one of the coaches. She claimed that while everyone else was vacationing during summers and spring break, she was working hard and covering Rams training camp, sacrificing her vacation time. This presents an interesting discussion about nepotism inside the world of sports media and whether or not journalists deserve the jobs we have. This brings to mind broadcasters Kenny Albert, Joe Buck and countless others whose parents were former on-air reporters and media members.Just like Albert, the coach’s daughter was lucky. For whatever reason, she was in a position that most aspiring sports journalists would love to be in. While nobody deserves to be lambasted  for circumstances out of their control, complaining about getting heat for it on social media is extremely disrespectful to those who have had to struggle more for success. She undoubtedly works hard, but a lot of other journalists work just as hard, if not harder, and will never even see the inside of the Coliseum because they aren’t the daughter of an NFL coach. Now, I can confidently say that I did not deserve some of the jobs I’ve received, and there are others who agree.Even though I am columnist here at the Daily Trojan, there’s is no doubt that there are more talented and qualified writers out there. Regardless, I’m thankful and lucky that I have this position. We should all act humbly. None of us deserve anything more than what we’ve worked for and past that, we should be thankful for the opportunities that luck brings our way. Getting a leg up from your friends or family might be a little controversial but in this industry, it is all about who you know and I don’t blame her for taking advantage of her dad being a coach — she would be a fool not to.The first major gig I landed in the summer before my freshman year of college was because of someone I knew. I worked for free every weekend that summer at the Del Mar race track as a production assistant. But I only has that opportunity because a guy named Eddie B., who I met calling my high school’s baseball team, knew someone at the network that broadcasts all the horse races.If I hadn’t met Eddie, would I have the job at TVG Network based on my skills alone? Most certainly not, and that’s unfair. It’s unfair to people who have to work minimum wage jobs to support their families and can’t take unpaid internships in the summers and during the school year. And while I shouldn’t necessarily feel guilty about getting that gig, I should still be thankful and appreciative of the opportunities I’ve been given and the connections I’ve made because not everybody is as lucky.We journalists have to stick together. It’s a rough situation with this current job climate.Although some may want to protect their own interests — and for good reason — we must ensure that the most prominent reporters are recognized for their talents. Nepotism should not be the way talented individuals achieve success. In the wise words of Amy Hempel, “There’s no such thing as luck. Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.” Keith Demolder is a senior majoring in broadcast journalism. His column, “Keith’s Keys,” runs every other Tuesday.last_img read more

A tribute to K. Abdullai Kamara (KAK)

first_imgBy A. Trokon TarrI have known Abdullai for 20 plus years, from the University of Liberia days to the Press Union of Liberia. Some of my colleagues have known him more than that.As it is natural in any organization, our respective relationships with Abdullai have varied a good deal. To some, he has been the boss, to be addressed as “Chief.” Others have known him just as “Abdullai.” To others again, he has been simply “Kamara,” and to a few intimate colleagues he has been “KAK.” But his attitude to us has never reflected these differences.A lot of my media colleagues will agree with me that Abdullai was one of the most tolerant Muslims in Liberia. He was humble, peaceful, compassionate, kind, hardworking and merciful. Those qualities came from above.I felt comfortable, equal, and had a very good relationship with him. He was always ready to go the extra mile when called upon. Abdullai was a hard working person (call it a workaholic) and he loved to get things done orderly, timely and professionally. He was a true Muslim, a leader, an editor, unifier, a real development communications specialist, a champion for journalists and media freedom and a great pen pusher.Abdullai would go the extra mile to assist you or call someone to do the same if he couldn’t, just to make sure that you were comfortable. I never heard him raise his voice. He believed in fairness. When there was a conflict he had to deal with, he dealt with it in a humble way. Strife was not part of his life.I do not want to say much about his value to the media in Liberia, because that is a matter of which we shall be reminded, often painfully, for a long time to come.No one is indispensable, but there are some people it is very difficult to do without, as I fear we are shortly going to discover.We are going to miss our former PUL President – but moreover we are going to miss K. Abdullai Kamara (KAK), the man.Those days at the University of Liberia and Press Union are gone, but not forgotten. It’s really hard to accept a sudden death like his, and we will never get accustomed to it.Gone before us too soon, K. Abdullai Kamara (KAK). Certainly, the precious memories of you would remain in our hearts. In everything, we all can say, May Allah’s blessing and peace be upon you. Rest in peace, KAK.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
