Saka put an end to months of speculation surrounding his future by signing a new long-term deal earlier this month, despite reported interest from a number of heavyweight Premier League clubs. The academy graduate is already a key member of Arteta’s first team squad and his standing is reflected by his new squad number which was previously the property of Tomas Rosicky, Robert Pires and Alexis Sanchez.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT Read More 1 min. story 1/1 Read More Coming Next by Metro Video Settings ‘I liked the number growing up because some of the best players in the world have worn it.‘It shows how much confidence they have in me and I want to repay their faith and hopefully can write my own history in that shirt.’Saka’s rise to prominence has been a rapid one. Less than two years ago he was watching his idols from the stands and now he is laying on assists for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He said: ‘In the academy we got tickets to watch (the first team) and I used to see him scoring goals. To now be playing with him is just amazing.‘You know he’s going to score a goal for us. He’s such a good guy who helps all the young players with advice and he’s also funny as well!’While the 18-year-old’s club future is now settled, he faces something of a dilemma at international level.

Child Abuse Cases Highlight Week of Violence in Broward

first_imgDavie police are investigating an overnight shooting.Just before 3 a.m. Thursday, police responded to a Wawa gas station located at State Road 7 and Griffin Road, in regards to the shooting.Witnesses say they were sitting in their car when a red Dodge Charger pulled up beside them and two men inside that vehicle began shooting at them.They said six or seven shots were fired, with one of the bullets going through the driver’s side window.Police said no one was struck by any of the bullets, although a passenger was cut on his arm by the shattered glass.Meanwhile, South Florida’s youngest residents are not immune to violence.Authorities in Broward arrested a nine-time convicted felon Wednesday, days after he shot his ex-girlfriend’s 1-year-old son in an unincorporated part of the county.According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the victim’s mother had just left the KFC at 3061 West Sunrise Blvd. on Sunday night when her ex-boyfriend, 36-year-old Jeffrey Simmons, started following her car in another vehicle.Deputies say Simmons shot at the victim’s car twice just east of NW 27th Ave. on West Sunrise Blvd.The woman fled south on 27th Ave., while Simmons continued chasing her.The incident eventually ended in the parking lot near a Marshalls on W. Broward Blvd.Authorities say Simmons exited his vehicle and fired two shots at the woman’s car, striking her son once.Photo courtesy: Broward County Sheriff’s OfficeThe toddler underwent successful surgery, although it remains unclear whether he will have permanent physical limitations.Simmons was taken into custody around 1 a.m. Wednesday.He is being held at the BSO Main Jail without bond on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, missile into a building and possession of weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon.In another unfortunate instance of children caught in violent situations, a 29-year-old Margate mother and her boyfriend were arrested this week, as her 4-year-old son is clinically brain dead at a Broward hospital, according to authorities.Margate Police arrested Shaquita Monique Brockington and Stephon Alexander Beaver last Monday, July 20.On Wednesday, July 15, officers responded to a 911 call about a 4-year-old with injuries. The child was taken to Broward General Hospital, where multiple injuries were found on his body.A police report states that Brockington told police the 911 call was because the child had fallen out of a tree and landed on his head.According to medical staff, the boy has an internal brain bleed, but no external injuries to his head.They also reported finding additional marks and injuries “in various stages of the healing process” on the child’s chest, throat, arms, legs and back.Detectives found messages between the couple on the woman’s phone. On the day of the alleged fall and after arriving at the hospital, Brockington received a text from Beaver telling her “Bae relax & go in there with a clear mind. DO NOT CHANGE THE STORY.”However, Brockington gave detectives a sworn statement last Friday that the story of the boy falling out of a tree was made up between her and Beaver, whom she called her husband.She told them that on the day of the child’s injuries, she became upset because the boy was not eating his breakfast. She alleges that he ignored her questions as to why he was not eating.Photo courtesy: Margate Police DepartmentThe police report goes on to say she told detectives that she felt “disrespected” and began punching the child’s legs multiple times. Afterward, Beaver also took punches at the boy’s legs.Brockington also told police that when she left to go to the bathroom and returned a few minutes later, Beaver was throwing the child in the air and catching him.She yelled at him to stop, but was ignored. When he did stop, Brockington noticed the child’s breathing was not normal.Two hours later, she said he was still “breathing funny.” A half hour later, she told Beaver that she was concerned about the child’s breathing because he had recently recovered from bronchitis, and she wanted to call 911.Nearly four hours after the incident, she noticed drool and blood on the mattress, where the boy was laying.Beaver told her not to call 911, as he was concerned they would discover the incident. He then created the story of the child falling from the tree.Medical staff that examined the boy say the type of injuries discovered, including marks on his throat, bite marks, loop shaped scars, and small circular burns, indicate that he injuries occurred continuously and over a length of time.Additionally, Medical director Jason Schulman, MD, states that the amount and different types of injuries documented indicate that the child suffered continuous abuse while in Brockington’s care.She is charged with one count of aggravated child abuse and one count of neglect of a child, due to her failure to make a reasonable effort to protect the child from abuse, neglect or exploitation by another person. She also faces one count of lying to law enforcement. Her bond was set at $250,000.Beaver is charged with aggravated child abuse, child neglect with great bodily injuries, and lying to law enforcement. Bond for all three of his charges was set at $300,000.last_img read more

Knapp medically disqualified after suffering 3rd concussion, will become undergraduate assistant

first_imgCorrection: In a previous version of this article, the number of since since Adam Harris’ concussion was misstated. Kyle Knapp became the third Syracuse player in the last four seasons to have his career cut short from multiple concussions. The Daily Orange regrets this error.Syracuse offensive lineman Kyle Knapp has been medically disqualified after suffering his third concussion, SU head coach Scott Shafer said Tuesday.Knapp, who redshirted two seasons ago and was limited to two games last year, was transitioning to guard this spring before the third concussion ended his career.“Since he’s been in Syracuse, he’s had three concussions in a very short period of time,” Shafer said. “The doctors just felt like they had to disqualify him from playing.”Knapp becomes the third Syracuse player in the last four seasons to have his career cut short from multiple concussions after fullback Adam Harris and defensive end Tyler Marona. He was listed as the first-team right guard on the spring depth chart.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textKnapp will stay on with the team as an undergraduate assistant coach, Shafer said.“It killed him,” Shafer said. “He was crushed, but you’ve got to turn that leaf over.”Shafer said Knapp’s most recent MRI came back totally clean, and that Knapp asked Shafer if that meant he could continue playing.“‘No,’” Shafer said he told Knapp. “‘The doctor said it’s not safe. We’re going to move forward. Some things are more important than football.’”In reaction to the increase in concussions, Shafer began looking into protective helmets this spring. He noticed that programs including South Carolina, Clemson, Boston College and Temple had bought black, padded helmet attachments that reduce impact.On Sunday, he introduced the helmet pads to his players and made them mandatory for all players in uniform.

Sidney Harman, 92, remembered for loyalty

first_imgSidney Harman, a professor and entrepreneur known for his unyielding dedication to students, died Tuesday from complications of acute myeloid leukemia. He was 92.Remembered · Sidney Harman, the founding chairman of USC’s Academy for Polymathic Study, died Tuesday of acute myeloid leukemia. – Photo courtesy of University Communications Harman was appointed Presidential Professor and inaugural Isaias W. Hellman Professor of Polymathy at USC in 2010, a designation that reflects his commitment to varied, interdisciplinary learning. He was a founding chairman of USC’s Academy for Polymathic Study, which fosters the pursuit of interdisciplinary work.But he was perhaps better known for his entrepreneurial endeavors, including his acquisition of Newsweek magazine for $1 last year.Harman was also a public servant, philanthropist and audio equipment mogul — he founded Harman International Industries, a stereo maker now based out of Washington, in 1953.“He was so accessible and had a true passion for the student body,” said Karin Huebner, director of programs at the Academy for Polymathic Study. “He encouraged students to pursue their academic passions because it can lead to something great — and I witnessed that firsthand.”Huebner said even when Harman did not feel well later in life, he still invited students to talk to him and email him if they had any problems. At one Academy for Polymathic Study meeting, Harman took the time to talk to each of the 43 students that attended.“The first thing he did was ask each student what his field of study was,” Huebner said. “He didn’t talk about himself … that left an impression.”Harman believed by bridging different disciplines, from art to science, unparalleled results could be seen — results crucial to the formulation of new ideas and theories.“[Harman] remained fully committed to helping our students develop expertise that integrates the very best of several disciplines,” President C. L. Max Nikias wrote in a letter. “He touched so many with the breadth of his knowledge, the scope of his intellect and the depth of his experiences. He was a genius.”In Washington, D.C., Harman used his genius — and his audio fortune, estimated at $500 million — to give back to the community. He funded the building of the Sidney Harman Hall, home to the Shakespeare Theater Company and the Washington Ballet, and also started the Harman Family Foundation, an organization that benefits the arts.“Few people command the broad perspective that Dr. Harman brought to bear in all his successful endeavors,” wrote Catherine Quinlan, dean of the USC Libraries, in a letter.Harman served as a guest lecturer for a number of classes, including those in architecture, economics and law.“He was so much older than the students, but he was so calm in his demeanor and very wise in the words he gave them, that they all showed a great amount of respect for him,” said James Ellis, dean of the Marshall School of Business. “He was a pretty amazing fellow.”Harman’s impact is evident university-wide; the Academy of Polymathic Study now includes 186 members and those who worked closely with Harman recognize him as a visionary individual.“On a personal note, I will miss him very deeply, and will fondly recall the many thought-provoking conversations we shared in my office,” Nikias wrote. “I know the USC community joins me in extending heartfelt sympathies to Jane and the entire Harman family.”Harman is survived by his wife, former congresswoman Jane Harman, six children and two step-children.Private services will be held in both Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles at later dates, according to his family.last_img read more

Gold standard: UW’s Ahmed set for shot at Olympics

first_imgMohammed Ahmed posted a personal best of 27:34 in the 10,000 meters April 29, meeting Olympic standards. He simply needs to officialy make Team Canada.[/media-credit]After the race of his life at the Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif., April 29, men’s distance track runner Mohammed Ahmed has nearly solidified himself a spot in the 2012 Olympic Games this summer in London.His 10,000-meter time of 27 minutes and 34 seconds, which was the sixth fastest time at the event and Ahmed’s personal best time, easily qualified Ahmed for the Olympic “A” standard racing time required to be eligible for the Olympic games.Still, despite his once-in-a-lifetime run in California, Ahmed will need to do the same thing again at the June 27 Canada Olympic Trials if he is to qualify for the Canadian Olympic Team. With the collegiate track season still in progress, some questions have arisen concerning how effective Ahmed will be for the Badger track team for the final few weeks of the season, including the Big Ten Championships May 11-13 in Madison, with the Olympic Trials in June in the back of his mind.“Getting the standard out of the way helps,” Ahmed said. “That relieves a lot of pressure off of my shoulders, and I should be able to focus on the school season, … but we are going to see how we approach the training or if I need to ease up and rest a little bit as we approach the Olympics.”The 2011-12 cross country and track seasons have been nothing but highs for Ahmed, who, along with his teammates, won both the Big Ten Championships and the NCAA cross country title in the fall before transitioning to the spring track season, where he holds the fastest time in the 10,000 meters across the Big Ten this season.Having an athlete of his caliber on the team has led to a competitive team environment that, in some teams, could cause rifts within the ranks, but this has not been the case with Ahmed and his teammates. Affectionately called “Mo” by his teammates, Ahmed’s success has allowed everyone on the team to improve this season.“We all have the same goal and we all strive for the same thing,” fellow distance runner Zach Mellon said. “So to see it manifest itself in Mo, and just his dedication, that pushes us just as hard as any of our hard workouts do.”At the same time, distance track coach Mick Byrne stressed the importance of Ahmed’s ability to stay grounded despite all of the success he has experienced this year.“He has had to switch off from being this world-class athlete that just qualified for the Olympic Games to being a UW student,” Byrne said. “Now, it’s back to reality, it’s back to having finals. You have to get grounded pretty quickly.”While Ahmed’s qualifying run is a tremendous accomplishment for a junior in college, his feat could have benefits for more than just himself. At a meet with so many high profile runners – as was the case in the Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational – Ahmed’s race will serve to galvanize what is already a fairly famous distance track program at UW. With more attention in the track world being given to the Badgers, the UW men’s track team is bound to gain many recruiting benefits as a result.“When you take a big meet like the Payton Jordan meet at Stanford [on April 29], we had all the top middle-distance and distance athletes, not only in the United States, but from all over the world,” Byrne said. “Success like that certainly isn’t going to hurt your program, and high school coaches, because of the mass media now, they can track it online. It’s just excellent exposure for us.”For a prime example of the recruiting windfall that a well-known program can receive, look no further than Ahmed himself. A track star at St. Catherine’s High School in Ontario, Canada, Ahmed had numerous colleges courting him before he finally chose to come to Madison three years ago.“The tradition here is definitely one of the reasons that I chose to come here,” Ahmed said. “There is a great balance between athletics and academics here.“Obviously Mick [Byrne] has trained so many great athletes as a coach here, and when I was looking to choose a school, I wanted a coach I could trust, and Mick was that.”With all the hype surrounding Ahmed and the UW track program, which is now ranked 17th nationally as the team finishes out its season, it may seem like he has not had a chance to celebrate his accomplishment. Still, Ahmed knows that the next few weeks of intense training with the team will only help bring him one step closer to the opportunity of a lifetime this summer in London.“It’s something that I have thought about for years,” Ahmed said. “I have worked hard for this, and to get this opportunity is almost like a dream for me.”last_img read more
