first_imgThe New York Times readership program has been renewed, giving USC students access to the daily newspaper on campus and online starting next week.Read all about it · The New York Times is now available for students at Tutor Campus Center, the Annenberg School and Leavey Library. – Kevin Fohrer | Daily Trojan“The New York Times readership program was started in the spring semester of 2013,” said Michael Yoshimura, USG’s director of Academic Affairs. “When we looked over the budget for the spring semester, it made sense to continue it.”In order to expand its readership base, The New York Times offers discounts to student organizations at major universities.“[The New York Times education staff] gave us a presentation on their readership program, and it sounded like a great way for students to learn what’s going on outside USC,” Yoshimura said.Physical copies of the daily paper will be placed in special racks near Leavey Library, the Ronald Tutor Campus Center and the Annenberg School each week from Monday to Friday. The directors say this spring’s distribution is an increase from last semester’s.“We’re actually getting more copies now, as well as a new online subscription,” said Logan Burkhead, USG’s assistant director of Academic Affairs.USG has registered for 200 digital licenses per day, which students can obtain by going to nytimes.com/passes  and registering with their USC email address. Students logging in will be given 24-hour access to subscriber content on the website.Yoshimura and Burkhead hope this new feature will increase the subscription’s popularity and result in even more educational opportunities for USC students in months to come.“We want to extend the program in the future,” Burkhead said. “We’re hoping to have an actual New York Times columnist come in by the end of the semester and give a presentation to students.”The directors believe that in comparison to other papers, such as the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times offers the “best package” to college students.“It seems like The New York Times is an elite publication, and it deals on a national scale,” Yoshimura said. “And considering everything else they’re giving us, they really set themselves apart.”last_img read more

first_img FOLLOW US READ | Was A Mistake, Hoping For Light Punishment: Shooter Ravi Kumar On Doping ViolationSun’s CAS hearing, the first in 20 years that was open to the public, was beset by technical difficulties and interpreting errors between Chinese and English which frustrated lawyers and held up proceedings. CAS said the private translation service was provided by Sun’s camp and agreed by both parties, adding that it couldn’t hire its own interpreters for reasons of “independence and neutrality”. Swimming body FINA confirmed in January that Sun had used a hammer to smash a vial containing his own blood sample during the testing session, but acquitted him of anti-doping violations, agreeing that testers had failed to produce adequate identification. But the ruling outraged the World Anti-Doping Agency which took the matter to CAS, demanding a ban of between two and eight years for missing the out-of-competition test. After being cleared by FINA Sun was able to compete in the World Championships in Gwangju, South Korea, in July, where he won two golds but became a focus of protests from rivals.READ | Captain Woods Sends Himself Out In 1st Presidents Cup MatchREAD | NBA Trade Rumours: Kevin Love On Verge Of Leaving Cleveland Cavaliers For Boston Celtics SUBSCRIBE TO US Chinese Olympic swimming champion Sun Yang’s anti-doping case, in which he is facing an eight-year ban for missing a drug test, won’t be settled before mid-January because of translation problems, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said. The Swiss-based court said “some concerns were raised” about the translation of Sun’s testimony from Chinese into English at the one-day hearing on November 15. The triple Olympic gold medal-winner, who served a doping suspension in 2014, is accused of smashing a blood vial with a hammer following a visit by testers in September last year.READ | Fit Johnson ‘ready’ For Full Part In Presidents Cup After Surgery First Published: 11th December, 2019 12:50 IST Press Trust Of India WATCH US LIVEcenter_img COMMENT “Although the organisation and the schedule of the public hearing was to the satisfaction of the arbitrators and parties’ counsels, some concerns were raised with respect to the quality of the interpretation of Mr. Yang’s testimony,” a CAS statement said.”The parties are currently preparing an agreed-upon written transcript of the proceedings, including a full translation of Mr. Yang’s testimony, which the panel will work from when deliberating and preparing the arbitral award,” CAS said, adding that the case would not be decided before mid-January.

first_imgThere’s plenty of reason to believe the Cardinals could select Kyler Murray with the first overall pick in next week’s draft.The two-sport star boasts all the credentials to be Arizona’s next starter after the team finished last season with a league-worst 3-13 record and missed the playoffs for the third straight year. There’s just one problem. Arizona already has Josh Rosen on the roster, which prompts the question: Could the Cardinals draft a top-10 quarterback for the second straight year? If they find a willing trade partner, then absolutely.The Cardinals haven’t had a winning season since 2015 when they posted a 13-3 record and won the NFC West with veteran Carson Palmer at the helm. But Palmer retired at then end of the 2017 season after spending much of the year on injured reserve, leaving a sizable gap under center that Rosen couldn’t seem to fill in his first season. Rosen completed 55.2 percent of his passes for 2,278 yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 14 games as a rookie.If Murray ends up being picked in the first round, he would become the first player ever to be a first-round selection in both the MLB and NFL drafts. Cardinals’ Josh Rosen hears the noise behind all those trade rumors Murray led Oklahoma to a 12-2 record as he threw for 4,361 yards with 42 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2018. He also ran for 1,001 yards and capped off his final collegiate season by winning the Heisman Trophy.Before that, however, he only threw 21 passes and rushed 14 times over seven games while backing up Baker Mayfield in 2017. As a freshman at Texas A&M in 2015, Murray threw 121 passes and rushed 53 times in eight games. Related Newscenter_img Given his late success on the football field, Murray announced in February he would pursue his dream of being an NFL quarterback, despite being selected by the Athletics with the ninth overall pick of the 2018 MLB Draft.His stock rose at the Scouting Combine in February, where he measured 5-10 and 1/8 inches and 207 pounds. It’s worth noting that quarterback Russell Wilson, who signed a mega contract extension to become the NFL’s highest-paid player earlier this week, posted similar measurements at 5-11 and 204 pounds before being drafted by the Seahawks. While Wilson ended up being a third-round pick, there’s no arguing that his underestimated talent has proven to be beneficial for Seattle.
