THIBODAUX, La. — The Nicholls State University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) teamed up with Hi 5 to provide some holiday cheer to local families in the community through an Angel Tree event.The Angel Tree was placed in Barker Hall in November, which was decorated with ornaments that consisted of a child’s name provided by Hi 5, as well as their gender, age, clothing and shoe size, and wish list. Whoever picked the ornament from the tree would purchase items from the list and wrap them to be gifted to the child.The gift presentations began Monday, Dec. 10, at the Cotillion Ballroom in the Donald G. Bollinger Memorial Student Union on the Nicholls campus. The children and their families, along with Nicholls student-athletes, coaches, athletic administrators, and members of the Hi 5 organization gathered for dinner. Following the meal, the children whose names were placed on the tree were presented with gifts by Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.“It was a great experience,” said Al Wilson, President of SAAC and member of the Colonel football team. “It’s very humbling and reminds you of where you came from. Interacting with kids makes you feel better about everything that you go through and makes you remember why you got into a sport and the fun that you had as a kid.”As part of the “Southland Gives Back” initiative, the Southland Conference will profile a community service outing from each of our 13 member institutions this holiday season.
Tenth-grader Spencer Monhein called the 15-minute film powerful and said he appreciated its message of tolerance – something he feels his school has also been carrying out in the last month. “The school is doing a pretty good job at having us learn about black history. The month now makes sense to me when before it didn’t.” Hart was named a Zero Hour school by the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations for promoting cultural awareness through positive student activities after some racially fueled confrontations last year on campus. The Emmy- and Oscar-winning Gossett, who became a Broadway star in his teens and soon tripled as a star in feature films and television, told students about his personal commitment to cultural awareness. Sporting a black T-shirt marked with the word “Eracism,” Gossett explained that his newest project is a nonprofit foundation that is planning to send African-American youths involved in gangs to Africa to learn about their history and culture. “The message is to teach young people that there is no race or religion above any other so that there can be a level playing field,” Gossett said. Hart Principal Gary Fuller said that is the message he hopes his students get out of the school’s Black History Month activities. “We are one family,” Fuller said. Gossett stressed that while viewing oneself as part of one human race is important, minorities should concentrate on learning their own history – often skipped in history books, television and film. “I call this Operation Catch-up,” Gossett said. “The United States is about to be the cutting-edge diamond of diversity in the world, so we need to have this knowledge of self.” email@example.com (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

NEWHALL – Spreading a message of tolerance and cultural awareness, legendary actor Louis Gossett Jr. spoke to students Monday as the culmination of Black History Month celebrations at culturally diverse Hart High School. Hart students also watched “Windows,” an award-winning short film co-starring Gossett as an amputee veteran who finds solace in an unsuspecting friend. Gossett said the film deals with wars and how different types of conflicts affect people. “It’s about more than world wars,” Gossett said. “It’s about finding other ways to communicate with each other rather than violence.” read more

“He would have been in a lot less trouble if he had waited at the scene,” Pokorny said. “This could have been just a horrible accident.” Each charge that Zavala faces carries a possible sentence of 30 years in state prison. Bail was set at $50,000. Pokorny said a bail bondsman arrived with Zavala when he turned himself in. Zavala has no prior criminal record.

The two were headed toward Bakersfield because Palomino was planning to move his family there. After the collision, Zavala allegedly drove farther to flee from authorities, turned off at the northbound State Route 138 off-ramp and ended up on Lancaster Road. The tractor-trailer’s fuel tank apparently ruptured in the collision, causing the cab to catch fire after the driver left the freeway. CHP Investigator Dave Pokorny said that witnesses who spoke to the driver when he stopped the burning truck were concerned that he was trying to get a ride out of the area while his truck was ablaze. The witnesses had no knowledge of the earlier fatal collision. About 20 minutes after the crash, police got a call from a man, possibly Zavala, who claimed his tractor-trailer had been stolen from a Pilot station in Castaic. When they arrived, the man was nowhere to be found. Pokorny said that Zavala evaded capture despite ground and air searches. VALENCIA – A Salinas man accused of causing a Thanksgiving Day crash near Gorman that killed a father and son turned himself in to the California Highway Patrol on Monday and was booked on suspicion of two felony hit-and-run counts and two manslaughter counts. Javier Barajas Zavala, 41, had contacted authorities Thursday through his attorney to express a desire to surrender, CHP officials said. He arrived Monday morning at the Newhall CHP office and was transported to the Santa Clarita sheriff’s station for booking. “We received a letter from his attorney instructing us not to question him,” Officer Wendy Hahn said. “When he arrived, we gave him his Miranda rights and asked him if he wanted to talk to us, and he said no.” Investigators believe Zavala was driving a 1999 Peterbilt big-rig that slammed into the back of a 1990 pickup truck stalled in traffic lanes of the northbound Interstate 5 near Gorman. read more

The Global Voices blogging network is an important collection of views, reports and media from around the world, including a comprehensive review of Belarus presidential Election Day protests and crackdowns.Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty is also covering the aftermath of the election, including a photo gallery of scenes from the crackdown.StorifyAs Vadim Lavrusik pointed out in his predictions for media in 2011, a new role of journalists in events like the Belarus election is to act as a real-time curator of information, sifting, filtering, vetting and verifying information for a distributed audience. NPR senior social strategist Andy Carvin has been one of the best in the world at this task, as evidenced by his work during the Haitian earthquake. Below, he used Storify to curate images, links, videos and tweets from the Web. This weekend, Alexander Lukashenko won a fourth term as president of Belarus. Official statements that he received nearly 80% of the vote have been met by the West decrying flaws and violent clashes involving thousands of protesters that have turned out into the streets. Eight of the 10 opposition candidates are reported to have been arrested, along with hundreds of protesters. As the government of Belarus cracks down, the Web is waking up to the news. Here are online windows into what’s happening.Blockade and crowd photos via Charter 97YouTubeThe Neda video in Iran was one of the most politically powerful online videos in history.

audrey watters Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Related Posts Facebook is rolling out a change to its social sharing buttons: “Like” will now act a lot more like “Share.” In other words, when you hit that “Like” button to express your thumbs-up approval of a particular site or story, Facebook will now post an update to your wall that includes a lot more details about what you’re approving. A Facebook “Like” will now include a picture, a headline and a little blurb, along with the option to comment, just as it does when you purposefully share a story to Facebook.Facebook spokesperson Malorie Lucich told Mashable that Facebook will continue to support the share button but that like will be the “recommended solution moving forward.” Calling the changes today “a test,” Facebook says it’s looking for developer feedback on how this new functionality works. But Inside Facebook reports that the old version of the share button has been removed from developers’ documentation. Up ’til now, developers had several options about how the button would push content to Facebook – a share button, a simple, comment-less like, and a recommend-with-comment option. Unless the latter was chosen, users only got a link to the story on the recent activity section of their wall. Now the Facebook buttons will all generate a full story. This change will likely be a boon to publishers who will see more of their content fill more news streams, and in turn, hopefully gain more referral traffic as a result. But it may not be a welcome change to Facebook users who find their feeds full of likes-are-now-shares.Will the auto-publishing to your wall change how you use Facebook’s Like button?

Related Posts Tags:#advertising#web People say tech startups have to eat their own dog food (meaning use their own services) but the widespread confusion concerning the value of location check-in apps like Foursquare could be eliminated by dog food as well. Specifically, by dogs eating dog food when their owners check-in at food dispensing marketing displays. It’s just an example, but it’s a really good one!Check out the video below of a German pet food company’s marketing idea. Dog owners who check in on Foursquare at a dog food display in their town will see the display release a free sample of the food. Then their dog will eat it, their social network contacts will see that they have engaged with said brand and the dog will pull on its leash when anywhere within blocks of the display in the future. “Please go check in at that dog food place!” your dog will say. Minus (or not) the dog, I can imagine a relatively simple system like this being applied to humans as well. Check in and a free sample is automatically dispensed. It’s a great idea.Personally, I don’t need beef kibbles to check in but it’s clear that many people do need some immediate reward to motivate them to participate. Give me “check in and we’ll educate you about the history of the place you’re at” and I’d be happy. I might even sit up on my back legs and shake hands.To tell the truth, my dogs are so food obsessed that I’d never be foolish enough to let them learn they could get food dispensed from a place like this. They would never be willing to walk anywhere else. I do like the idea though.Video found via PSFK via Mashable via Creativity Online.
