first_imgJenny Novak, a second-year graduate student studying geography, was elected president of the Graduate and Professional Student Senate at Monday night’s GPSS meeting.Ready to serve · Jenny Novak, a second-year graduate student studying geography and the current campus affairs chair for GPSS, was elected president of GPSS on Monday. – James Watson | Daily Trojan Novak, GPSS’ current campus affairs chair, won a large enough majority of the senators’ votes to avoid a run-off. She beat out Edward Ng, a first-year graduate student studying public policy and urban planning, and Juanita Price, a first-year graduate student studying education.Novak said one of her main goals is spreading awareness of GPSS.“The most important thing for us is to focus on in the beginning is publicity … so the entire university community knows about GPSS and so the graduate students know what a resource we can be for them,” Novak said.Her long-term goals include establishing a subsidized transit system, continuing her work on improving sustainability and ensuring a first-year housing guarantee for graduate students, she said.“We want to make sure that our graduate students are getting the adequate space so that we can have students living closer to the community, at least in their first year here,” she said.Novak also hopes to ensure that the graduate student lounge in the new Ronald Tutor Campus Center promotes interdepartmental relationships and helps accomplish other GPSS goals.Aliya Yousufi, a second-year graduate student studying law and the current GPSS vice president, was elected for a second term as vice president.Yousufi, who ran unopposed, told the senators at the meeting Monday, “This year, I want to do a lot more.”Yousufi said she has a number of plans to use surplus funding currently unused by graduate students. She hopes to give all students access to the conference fund, which provides funding for students to attend conferences but is currently limited to certain departments, and to re-establish the professional development fund.“I’m going to be working with the finance chair to create a professional development fund for graduate student to help with networking and job hunting,” she said.Irfan Elahi , a current member of the GPSS Finance Committee and a graduate student studying business, was elected to serve as the finance chair.Elahi proposed increased efficiency, complete transparency and the expansion of the endowment fund. Like Yousufi, he said he would like to revamp the conference fund and add a senator development fund to take advantage of the extra funding GPSS has available.Rosezetta Upshaw, a second-year law student, ran unopposed for Community Service Chair and was elected to serve her second year on the GPSS executive board. She began her involvement as a senator two years ago and currently serves as the elections and recruitment chair.“I don’t want to reinvent the wheel; I want to use GPSS resources to put extra air in those tires that are already rolling,” Upshaw said. “I want to collaborate across disciplines more because my vision is really to bring the campus together.”She plans to offer visits to more schools and detention centers to take on a more visible role in the community.“We’re known for the social programming, the grad bar; we’re known as a bank to come get funding, but I also want us to be known as being active in the community,” Upshaw said. “If we’re all doing service together, if we’re all in the community making a difference, that’s the perfect way to build ourselves as an organization, to make connections across disciplines.”last_img read more

first_imgSomebody get Ted Thompson on the line! Pronto!I’ve got an idea that’s going to blow your mind. I am firmly convinced Rex Grossman is pretty much the worst quarterback ever to (dis)grace a football field, and that the Bears are going the way of the Super Bowl Shuffle if they keep Mr. Gross-man as their quarterback.So who should step up and be the 21st different starting quarterback for the Bears since Packers great Brett Favre started his consecutive-games streak back on Sept. 20, 1992?Why, how about Mr. Favre himself?Yeah, I know, this is like Babe Ruth going from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees (and playing in seven World Series, winning four), or Adam Vinatieri leaving the Patriots for the Colts (Super Bowl XLI), or Ray Bourque going to win his first Cup with the Avalanche. Geez, poor Beantown.But this would be worse, right? You can’t have the most iconic football player of the past 15 years leaving the Packers for another team! And for the Chicago Bears, no less! Can this happen?You “Brett” your sweet bippy it can. I’ve got a doozy of an idea for a trade that just might work out for everybody.First, let’s consider the state of each franchise.Chicago just lost the Super Bowl, and risks falling into the dreaded curse of the Super Bowl loser next season. At the same time, take out the quarterback, and the Bears have themselves a pretty good team — one that legitimately could call itself the strongest team in the league — and most definitely that of the NFC.On the other hand, Green Bay’s roster has more holes than a cart full of Swiss cheese. Favre’s a halfway decent option at quarterback, but he’s no Tom Brady or Peyton Manning anymore. And let’s face it: While he certainly gives the Packers a chance in 2007, No. 4 won’t be around forever (contrary to popular belief around the state).The Bears need nothing but a decent quarterback, and the Packers need a plethora of good players to build for the long haul. Do I smell a deal? Ya Brett-cha. Ah yes, I can see it now, on the SportsCenter bottom line…BREAKING NEWS: Packers QB Brett Favre has been traded to the Bears for the rights to every draft choice Chicago owns in the 2007 and 2008 drafts… and $50 million.Seriously. Sometimes, my own brilliance frightens me to no end.Tell me this isn’t genius! The Bears are almost certain to win Super Bowl XLII, Favre can retire with a second championship ring (along with all those passing records … here’s a tissue, Mr. Marino, and a bottle of anti-depressants, Mr. McGrath), and the Packers — as terrible as they may be next season — are on the fast track to winning a couple of Super Bowls in about four or five years.My guess is Bears fans would jump on this bandwagon a lot quicker than Packers fans. Even the most die-hard supporters are usually welcoming when a star player comes to town, no matter where he’s been or what he’s done.But in speaking with Pats fans about Vinatieri’s newest bling, my guess is Cheeseheads would sooner swear off brats and Miller Lite than see Favre play for Da Bears.How’s this: Favre sticks around for the first half of the season or so, breaks Marino’s touchdown record, yadda yadda yadda. Then, at season’s midpoint, when the Bears are 7-1 in spite of Rex and most definitely not because of him (I’m talking to you, Lovie), Chicago offers all their draft picks up to the then-2-6 Packers, who at this point are more than willing to let Brett end his career on a high note instead of a weekly debate as to whether Aaron Rodgers should start in place of the Packer legend.There, now everybody’s happy. Right?Right?Aaron Brenner is a sophomore majoring in journalism and really doesn’t hate Brett Favre as much as he may let on most of the time. Send all that Brett love to ajbrenner@wisc.edu.last_img read more

first_imgThere has been a recent spate of pitch-invaders at matches around the world, and to be fair to the game’s top players, they seem to be taking it well.Cristiano Ronaldo was the latest one to stay classy during Saturday’s match inGranada—a 4-0 Real Madrid win—when a young fan decided to start hugging him and then refused to let go. Ronaldo humoured the fan before security guards finally took over while it looks like Sergio Ramos also had to endure a hugging session. Nice behaviour by the Real stars, but with pitch-invaders increasingly being treated so nicely, surely it only encourages more people to follow their lead?And you have to worry about the day somebody has more dangerous intentions than a mere hug.last_img
