Spanish fan arrested over racist abuse at Wolves Traore

first_img “He remains in police custody for questioning. “Any form of discrimination is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.” Wolves have, meanwhile, sought to reiterate their ticketing requirements in the Europa League following complaints about Espanyol fans being present in the upper tier of the Billy Wright Stand. Under competition rules clubs are required to provide 200 tickets in category one areas, separate from the main allocation for visiting teams, with the location chosen by UEFA. The tickets are typically used by guests of visiting clubs, such as players’ families. read also: Europa League: Wolves thrash Espanyol 4-0 in last-32 clash Wolves supporters themselves benefited from the legislation in this season’s away fixture at Slovan Bratislava, when 200 were able to attend despite the match being played behind closed doors because of previous racist behaviour from fans of the Slovak club. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… A Spanish fan was arrested on suspicion of racist abuse during Wolves’ 4-0 win against Espanyol at Molineux. The man, aged 24, was ejected from the stadium and arrested during the Europa League clash on Thursday night. He was arrested after monkey gestures and chants were allegedly directed at Wolves player Adama Traoré. It is understood UEFA’s three-step protocol for dealing with racism was not enacted as the incident was swiftly dealt with by stewards in the ground. In a separate incident three Espanyol fans were attacked by a group of youths near the old Canal Club building on the corner of the Ring Road and Wednesfield Road.

Decatur County Traffic Safety Partnership conducting school bus safety patrols

first_imgGreensburg, IN—Decatur County Sheriff’s Office and Greensburg Police Department will be working to safeguard students as they get on and off the bus this fall. Over the next couple of months, officers will be positioned along bus stops and routes looking for stop-arm violations and motorists driving dangerously.The overtime patrols are part of the state’s Stop Arm Violation Enforcement (SAVE) program, which was developed by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute last year, funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. As part of the effort, officers will work with local school corporations and bus drivers to identify problem areas where the highest number of violations occur.In Indiana, it’s against the law for motorists to pass a bus that’s stopped and has its red lights flashing and stop-arm extended. This applies to all roads, with one exception. On multi-lane roads divided by a physical barrier or unpaved median, vehicles traveling the opposite direction of the bus may proceed with due caution.The following is a list of school bus safety tips provided by NHTSA.• Slow down. Watch for children walking in the street, especially if there are no sidewalks in the neighborhood.• Be alert. Children arriving late for the bus may dart into the street without looking for traffic.• When backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage, watch out for children walking or bicycling to school.• Don’t drive distracted or impaired.• Watch for children playing and congregating near bus stops.• Be prepared. Knowing how to drive when buses are around is critical.  -Yellow flashing lights indicate the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children. Motorists should slow down and prepare to stop their vehicles.  -Red flashing lights and extended stop arms indicate the bus has stopped and children are getting on or off. Motorists must stop their cars and wait until the red lights stop flashing, the extended stop-arm is withdrawn, and the bus begins moving before they can start driving again.last_img read more

Broward’s Reopening Plan Limits Groups, Encourages Telework

first_imgBroward officials had not sent a formal letter regarding the reopening plans to DeSantis as of Wednesday afternoon. “Whenever feasible,” the plan also encourages employees to “telework or establish a rotation or staggered schedule to reduce the number of employees working on site.”When working on site, people must wear masks when they are within six feet of someone else.”I want a balanced, careful, and safe reopening. There is no such thing as a safe opening to a beach. I believe we need to start with a phase one that is phased in and I don’t think beaches should be part of that. Limit restaurant capacity to 25% at first,” says @senatornanrich— Broward County Commission (@browardinfo) May 12, 2020 Gov. Ron DeSantis said Wednesday that the county would learn “very soon” if businesses can partially reopen this Monday, May 18. A draft of the county’s plan which was obtained by the South Florida Sun Sentinel restricts groups to no more than 10 people. The draft plan allows for “professional services and other businesses located in multi-business office buildings in Broward County [to] continue normal operations,” but does not allow public access unless the business is considered “essential.” Violators to the new rules in Broward could face fines of up to $500 per violation.center_img Commissioner Mark Bogen says the county is expecting the governor to approve the plan, which is still being finalized, “quickly. And we’ll be moving forward quickly.”Miami-Dade officials are also trying to reopen some businesses in they county by this Monday. On Wednesday, the city of Miami announced it plans to open some of its businesses starting May 20. However, the governor said at a news conference that he plans to decide soon whether the county could reopen. “Broward has definitely trended well,” DeSantis said regarding recent reductions in the numbers of people becoming infected with COVID-19.Despite the potential Monday reopening, Broward’s beaches will remain closed until further notice. New rules for Broward County’s imminent reopening would require that salons, restaurants and stores limit their number of customers or get fined. In addition, businesses are advised to “develop a plan for monitoring your employees’ health, with a particular focus on COVID-19 symptoms, with the goal of preventing ill employees from working.”last_img read more

Wisconsin splits weekend set

first_imgJAKE NAUGHTON/Herald photoThe seventh-ranked Wisconsin volleyball team split its weekend series, winning against Northwestern in five games Saturday and losing 3-1 to Michigan State Friday.The Badgers’ victory Saturday snapped the Wildcats’ five-game winning streak, which included wins over No.13 Minnesota and No. 20 Michigan. Northwestern, which had previously lost seven in a row — including a loss against Wisconsin in Evanston Sept. 26 — was looking to fight their way up in the Big Ten standings.The Wildcats (15-9, 6-7 Big Ten) should not have posed much of a threat to a stronger Badger team but allowed Wisconsin to win despite playing, according to head coach Pete Waite, far from his team’s potential.“It seemed like it was a bit of a struggle tonight, just getting our team to play our best,” Waite said. “We just seemed to shoot ourselves in the foot for a while there, just giving points with net errors and service errors, and we’ve got to clean that up and get things back on track.”In the first game, Wisconsin came out swinging, en route to a 30-23 victory. The Badgers out-blocked the Wildcats 3-1 and hit at an impressive .429 clip, while holding Northwestern to a .186 hitting percentage.However, the Badgers were plagued by mistakes in the second and third game. In the second, Wisconsin had six service errors and allowed Northwestern to go on a 9-3 run, which led to a 30-27 victory for the Wildcats.“I think it attributed to the fact that we couldn’t put together runs,” senior setter Jackie Simpson said. “Obviously when you go back there and you miss your serve, it’s hard to keep that going because you work so hard to side out and then you give it right back to them.”Northwestern was able to come out on top in Game 3 as well, winning 37-35. The Wildcats capitalized on several net violations by the Badgers and held Wisconsin to a .182 hitting percentage. Leading the way for Northwestern were Brittani Gray, Chelsy Hyser and Lindsay Anderson — all credited with five kills.Wisconsin came out on top of Northwestern in the fourth, 30-26, with help from reserves Allison Wack and Morgan Salow, who had six and four kills, respectively.“We needed a boost,” Waite said. “I thought Morgan could up a little different kind of a block and Jackie [Simpson] had no problem going to Morgan.”In the fifth game, outside hitter Brittney Dolgner was able to take over, accounting for six of the Badgers’ 15 points. Dolgner had five of her 23 kills and one service ace in the fifth game.Friday’s match against the Spartans was the Badgers’ first loss against an unranked team since early September 2006. Going into the game, Michigan State was in a five-way tie for sixth place in the Big Ten, with a record of 5-7.“We didn’t come out with the same energy and focus that has gotten us to this point in the season,” Waite said. “It was clear we were pretty flat at the beginning and were battling back to find that throughout the match.“There were times where we saw our normal team, but it was just in spurts. I’ve been saying that these teams in the conference are very strong, very physical and playing some very good ball. Michigan State showed that tonight.”Michigan State won the first game 30-21. Outside hitter Katie Johnson led the Spartans with 10 kills in the game and 26 in the match. Heading into the weekend, Johnson ranked eighth in the Big Ten, averaging 4.24 kills per game.Keying the Spartans’ first game, Michigan State held Wisconsin to a mere .071 hitting percentage, while holding Dolgner to two kills and Taylor Reineke to three.“It’s frustrating,” Waite said. “They changed their lineup around a little bit, put some people in some better positions and they are a well-balanced team right now.”The Badgers rebounded in the second game, winning 30-25. Dolgner led the way for Wisconsin with six kills and outside hitter Katherine Dykstra had five kills. The Badgers held the Spartans to a .149 hitting percentage.The Spartans were able to win the third game, 30-26, despite allowing the Badgers to put up a .406 hitting percentage. The fourth game was marked by a controversial call. It appeared the ball landed out, but the officials ruled it in. The point eventually led to a 30-28 victory for the Spartans.“We’ve been improving every week since the loss at Michigan a while back,” Spartans head coach Cathy George said. “And we dedicated ourselves to improvement, and I’ve seen us gradually over time.”Wisconsin’s series split this weekend puts them two games behind Big Ten leaders Penn State. The Badgers will travel to State College, Pa., Nov. 16 to try to narrow the gap between themselves and the Nittany Lions.last_img read more

Men’s crew heads east

first_imgHeading into the weekend, the UW men’s crew team is ranked No. 3 in the country. But in their sport, numbers don’t matter much.“It’s nice to be recognized. Our guys are OK — there’s no question about that,” head coach Chris Clark said. “But for us right now, it does not mean anything. … It does not give you any tangible benefit.”Nevertheless, after a tremendous weekend at the Stanford Invitational against top-ranked Stanford and Cal — in which the Badgers dominated both teams — the latest number for the men’s rowing team is three. That is, third in the country.Beating two teams of the caliber of No. 6 Cal and No. 9 Stanford on the road was a defining set of wins for Wisconsin. Although the victories lifted the Badgers in the polls, their focus continues to be on the upcoming weekend.“We’re trying not to focus really on that,” junior Ross James said. “We’re trying to focus on the race at hand, rather than the big picture.”After a high-intensity trip to the West Coast, the Badgers are headed out east this weekend to go up against two more elite teams, Dartmouth and MIT, in the Cochrane Cup. As of now, neither team is ranked, but that does not leave the Badgers in the clear this weekend.“I think we feel a little confident, but at the same time we can’t take anything for granted,” junior George Walters said. “We are just compounding what we’ve done before. So I think we are just trying to take what we did from last two weekends ago and trying to build off that.”Both Dartmouth and MIT competed against some of the best last weekend, which adds to their experience. Dartmouth raced No. 2 Brown, while MIT faced No. 4 Harvard and fifth-ranked Princeton. Although neither Dartmouth nor MIT were able to come away with victories, both teams raced very competitively.Both UW opponents bring two other advantages to this weekend’s events. As East Coast schools, they have both been in the water for longer periods of time this season than the Badgers.“We’ve been on the water for just over two weeks. And we are racing crews who have been on the water for all of March,” assistant coach Eric Mueller said. “It’s a tough trip against a tough lineup.”Dartmouth and MIT also have the home-course advantage this weekend. Wisconsin will be flying to Hanover, N.H. for the first race against Dartmouth on Saturday and then driving to Boston for the second on Sunday, where they will compete in the Jablonic Cup.“When you travel like this, you just want to get through it and do as well as you can, because it takes a lot of energy,” Clark said. “It’s almost like you’re going off on a campaign basically. It’s always a tough challenge. The travel part of it is by far the most difficult.”Out of all the teams Wisconsin faces in their league, the Eastern American Rowing Conference, the Badgers are the only ones not located on a coast. This geographic disadvantage forces Wisconsin to be the last team to hit the water in the spring and the only team that is forced to fly to their races.Despite these obstacles, the Badgers have been able to put up impressive performances wherever they race.“[The] expectation is to get out there, row as well as we can,” Clark said.last_img read more
