As mentioned [on commentary], those injuries were a scratched cornea and a ruptured blood vessel. “We’re going to do periodic eye exams to make sure the scratch on his cornea is healing and he will be ready for WWE Fastlane.”Cena’s eye injury is indeed legit, but it has been worked into the current storyline with Rusev heading into their match at the Fast Lane PPV on February 22.

WSU Vancouver fall enrollment breaks record

first_imgIf Washington State University Vancouver feels a bit more crowded than normal, that’s because it is.WSU reported record enrollment systemwide last week, including at its Vancouver campus.As students wrap up their first month back at school, WSU Vancouver announced on Friday that its fall enrollment is 3,426 students, up from fall 2015’s 3,305 students. Vancouver also added 333 new freshmen from last year, according to a news release. Systemwide, WSU saw record enrollment of 30,142 students.Nancy Youlden, WSU Vancouver’s vice chancellor for student affairs and enrollment, credits the increased enrollment to the university’s marketing efforts. WSU Vancouver recently incorporated enrollment as part of its 2016-2021 strategic plan, and it is aiming for an overall enrollment of 5,000 students by the end of those five years. Youlden said the school has been working with a marketing firm that’s presented a “pretty crisp message” about the university to possible students.“We’ve been very deliberate,” Youlden said. “I think our enrollment efforts, communication, marketing are getting more sophisticated. It feels like it is certainly paying off and aligns directly with the university’s strategic plan.”WSU Vancouver’s budget is largely driven by tuition dollars, so enrollment increasing is always exciting news to the university. Resident tuition for students is $9,883 annually.Additional dollars from additional students will allow the university to offer better programs and facilities, Youlden said.“Any time we’re able to increase our overall operations budget, it allows us to do more,” she said. “Whether it’s existing academic programs or adding services that help support students. There’s just a number of different ways by having that additional capacity.”last_img read more

Hidden Figures shocks at SAG

first_imgThe cast of “Hidden Figures” rocketed to the Screen Actors Guild top award at a fiery, protest-laden ceremony that was dominated by defiance over President Trump’s sweeping immigration ban.An uplifting drama about African-American mathematicians who aided NASA’s 1960s space race, “Hidden Figures” was the surprise best-ensemble winner Sunday night at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium. With the Oscar front-runner “La La Land” not nominated in the category, most expected a contest between “Moonlight” or “Manchester by the Sea.”“This story is about unity,” said Taraji P. Henson, who stars alongside Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae in “Hidden Figures.” “This story is about what happens when we put our differences aside and we come together as a human race. We win. Love wins. Every time.”From the first remarks by presenter Ashton Kutcher, the ceremony was peppered with speeches that argued passionately for inclusion. In a very well dressed version of the demonstrations sparked nationwide over the weekend, most award winners spoke in some way — either through personal anecdote or a call to arms — against Trump’s halting of immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations.Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who added another honor for her performance on the political satire “Veep,” said she was the daughter of an immigrant who fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France.last_img read more

Tribe bets on casino plan in Oregon

first_imgSALEM, Ore. — A confederation of tribes in Oregon announced plans Tuesday to build a casino in the state capital, and draw in crowds of gamblers from Portland.The Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon said they hope to open the 140,000 square foot entertainment, gaming and hotel facility in 2021 on reservation property on the northern end of Salem, and that they want to partner with other tribes. The Siletz would need approval from the governor for a casino. The initial reaction from Gov. Kate Brown’s office indicated the Siletz will have to hedge its bet by getting the other eight federally recognized tribes in Oregon on board — and some already have casinos or have their own plans. “To date, Gov. Brown has not received any proposal that enjoys comprehensive tribal support,” Bryan Hockaday, Brown’s press secretary, said in an email. “Should Gov. Brown receive such a proposal, the discussion would focus on whether the proposed casino would be in the best interest of the tribes, and of the people of Oregon.”The Siletz said they expect to create 1,500 full-time jobs the first year of operation of the casino, which the tribe wants to build near Interstate 5 on the north side of Salem. They project $185.4 million in gross revenue in the first year of operation.last_img read more

BAHAMAS PRIME MINISTER MEETS WITH CARICOM LEADERS AHEAD OF ENERGY SUMMIT

first_img Bahamian music legend gunned down at home in Turks and Caicos Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE26th January 2015Prime Minister Christie meets with CARICOM leaders ahead of energy summitElcott ColebyBahamas Information ServicesNassau, Bahamas (26th Jan) – Wasting no time in his official capacity as the effective political head of CARICOM, Bahamas Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Perry G. Christie caucused with his Heads of Government Sunday evening in Washington DC ahead of the inaugural Caribbean Energy Security Summit scheduled to begin on Monday.While the Caribbean Community was clear in its desire for increased access to new funding and investment opportunities, they wanted to take a wait and see attitude by first listening to and analyzing the policy position and proposals presented by the United States before finalizing their regional policy position.In chairing his first official Heads of Government meeting, Prime Minister Christie said that in representing a diverse group such as CARICOM, there are bound to be varying levels of demands that countries would like to see fulfilled and consequently, varying levels of satisfaction when decisions are made. It was however necessary for all countries to take full advantage of the opportunities such a summit will present. “We are well aware that there will be significant corporate personalities present who are interested in investing in our countries so it is going to be I think critical for me to reflect the conditions and views of the countries represented by CARICOM” said the Prime Minister.Speaking more directly and specifically to the needs and concerns of CARICOM was the country’s Environment Minister Hon. Kenred Dorsett who said that it was important that “conditions associated with the funding does not preclude any member country from being able to access it; making sure that it’s new funding so that we don’t find themselves precluding us from getting from traditional sources that we’ve already been able to access fund from – will be very important and to ensure that at the end of the day, the actual mechanism by which funding is granting is centered in the CARICOM region to ensure greater level of accountability.”Another important issue up for discussion according to the Environment Minister was the availability of and access to natural gas from the United States and a clearer explanation from the US delegation on the licensing and approval processes for the export of vitally important energy source into CARICOM countries. This is important as CARICOM looks to use cleaner and cheaper fuels like natural gas and reduce its reliance on traditional fossil fuel such as diesel and heavy fuel oil or bunker C.Further, the Environment Minister said he hoped The Bahamas is not judged on its gross domestic product and eliminated from eligibility for critical funding. This has been a long standing and vexing challenge for The Bahamas in accessing critical funding for national development. Both the country’s Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Perry G. Christie and Foreign Minister Hon. Fred Mitchell have addressed this issue in various international forums.According to the US State Department, this Summit is a key component of the Caribbean Energy Security Initiative (CESI) that the US Vice President announced in June 2014. It brings together government, finance, and private sector leaders from the United States, the Caribbean, and representatives of the international community to promote a cleaner and more sustainable energy future in the Caribbean through improved energy governance, energy diversification, greater access to finance, and donor coordination.
