Matriculate helps low-income high-schoolers apply to college

first_imgNonprofit organization Matriculate works to ensure all students in the United States have equal access to quality higher education, regardless of their socio-economic background.According to the organization’s website, only 8% of low-income, high-achieving high school students apply to college in a strategic manner similar to their high-income peers. Matriculate wants to change that.Matriculate is a national organization based in New York City that assists high-achieving, low-income high school students in their transition to college. The organization pairs low-income high school students across the country with college advisors — college students interested in aiding the high schoolers through the college admissions process.“[Matriculate helps] particularly those students who would traditionally be caught up in the cycle of under-maximizing where they have the talent to really thrive at a top college or university,” Staci Hundt, former interim director at the Office of Outreach and Engagement Recruitment at Notre Dame, said. “[The students] may not have a balanced college list built out that would allow them to kind of enter into the funnel at one of those top colleges or universities.”Notre Dame is one of nine colleges and universities throughout the country partnering with Matriculate, according to their website. Hundt was involved with the launch of the Notre Dame chapter of Matriculate in the fall of 2015, she said.“We actually became aware of [Matriculate] because of Sean Cullinan, who is a graduate of Notre Dame,” Hundt said. “At the time, he was a current parent, and he actually sat on the board at Matriculate. He introduced Don Bishop [Associate Vice President of Enrollment at Notre Dame] to the organization, and we thought, ‘Oh gosh, it would be a perfect fit for Notre Dame.’”Matt Winkler, a Notre Dame senior, is the head advising fellow of the Notre Dame chapter of Matriculate. He has been involved with the organization on campus since his freshman year.“The experience has been really amazing. Having the opportunity to both work with the various college students advising the high schoolers and my high schoolers over the years has been incredibly fulfilling,” he said.During his time with Matriculate, Winkler said he has helped eight low-income, high-achieving students who are now freshmen at various universities and colleges.“Seeing them grow from their junior year all the way through to the end of their senior year [of high school], and even through the beginning of their college experience right now, I still keep up to date with them, and they’re all doing really well,” Winkler said. “Over the time, you end up becoming pretty close to them.”Winkler said he still keeps in touch with Eliza Haider, a current sophomore at Princeton University, whom he helped with the college process.“I started with her at the end of her junior year, and she really didn’t know much about colleges at all. [She] really only knew the local colleges around her,” he said. “She’s doing really, really well.”Students who participate in Matriculate are passionate about giving back to their communities, Winkler said.“We’ve kind of all been given an incredible opportunity to come here and study those relationships and have really great college experiences, and I think all the advisors that I’ve seen have really been motivated to kind of pay it forward and help influence the lives of high schoolers,” he said.The club recruits potential advisors each year in the fall, Winkler said.“For people who are open to having difficult conversations with people and people who are friendly and outgoing and willing to put in the time, I can see those types of people would have an easy path to becoming an advisor,” he said.Tags: Matriculate, Undermatchinglast_img read more

After-school snacks

first_imgBy Dan RahnUniversity of GeorgiaChildren need after-school snacks. But University of Georgiaexperts say parents need to help kids make snacking the healthy,safe habit it needs to be.To supply the energy they need to stay healthy and active,children have to eat more calories and more often, said JanBaggarly, UGA Extension Service coordinator in Bibb County.Children are growing fast. And they’re usually more active thanadults.But parents need to guide children to make healthy snack choices,Baggarly said. To help them do that, keep plenty of healthysnacks on hand.A nutritious snack provides food from at least one of the FoodGuide Pyramid food groups, Baggarly said. At the same time, itisn’t too high in fat, sugar or salt.”Often, children don’t get all the nutrition they need fromeating regular meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner, so snacksbecome essential,” she said. “Making healthy snacks available forkids after school is a great way to keep their energy levels upand not spoil their dinner.”Plan aheadBut snacks should be planned for, she said. They shouldn’t justhappen.Baggarly suggests these nutritious snacks: cheese and crackers,peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, yogurt, hard-cooked eggs,cold cereal, fresh and dried fruits, raw vegetables and dips madefrom low-fat ingredients, popcorn, graham crackers and vanillawafers.You don’t have to leave cookies off the list, either. “Just makesure they’re made with low-fat ingredients,” she said.One way to reduce fat in cookies is by using applesauce in placeof shortening when making oatmeal cookies. This alteration alonecuts the fat by one-third.After-school drinks can add extra calories to a child’s diet,too. Baggarly said sugar drinks like Kool-Aid, soft drinks or”fruit drinks” are poor choices for snack time. Fruit juices madefrom real fruit (check the label) are much better.Milk is an excellent choice, too. “And today you can buy it in avariety of flavors, which helps its appeal,” she said.Food safetyParents help their kids make safe choices, too, said JudyHarrison, an Extension Service food safety specialist with theUGA College of Family and Consumer Sciences.”Moms and dads need to establish some basic kitchen rules andconsider putting them in writing,” she said. “For instance, manychildren begin to use the microwave as early as age seven. Butyou may not want your child (doing this) unsupervised.”Improper use of a microwave, she said, can cause severe burns.”Teach your children to open packages and remove lids so thatsteam escapes away from their faces,” she said, “and to use potholders or oven mitts when handling hot foods.”Harrison suggests teaching your children four simple steps tokeeping food safe: clean, separate, cook and chill. Keep counters and tables clean. Choose someplace else toplace books, book bags or anything else that might contaminatefood. Always wash hands with soap and warm, running water for atleast 20 seconds before touching food. And use clean plates andutensils. Wash fruits and vegetables with cool, running waterbefore you eat them.Keep raw foods like meats away from ready-to-eat foods.If you’re warming leftovers, make sure you reheat them to 165degrees Fahrenheit. Parents should teach their children how touse a food thermometer to check the temperature of cooked food.Put refrigerated foods back in the fridge after your snack isready. If you get the milk out, don’t leave it out. Put it back. Older children who have permission to use the microwave canprepare microwave popcorn (“but hold the butter, please,” shesaid), baked potatoes or lower-fat hot dogs. Or they can reheatleftovers.Kids deserve a little refreshment after a hard day at school,Harrison said. Just make sure it’s safely prepared and good forthem.(Dan Rahn is a news editor with the University of GeorgiaCollege of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more

We should not count only on growth to solve unemployment problem

first_imgRabat – To solve the problem of unemployment, we should not count only on growth, said minister of employment and social affairs Abdeslam Seddiki.According to estimates, 1 % of growth rate generates an average of 30,000 jobs, and we have a labor market that is witnessing an annual arrival of 180,000 job applications, said Seddiki in an interview published Monday by the newspaper “L’Economiste”.To meet these arrivals, we need a growth rate of 6 %, without including the existing stock of unemployed people, he said, stressing the importance of setting the balance between innovative investment and those meant for traditional sectors, and investment in infrastructure that creates indirect employment. The minister, who noted that the pressure on the labor market is still high, said that his department can act immediately on existing employment active policies, namely the Taehil, the Idmaj” and Moukawalati programs.last_img read more

The Good The Bad And The WTF Of NBA Free Agency

There have been a handful of seismic shifts since NBA free agency began earlier this month — LeBron James heading west to join the Lakers, DeMarcus Cousins signing with Golden State and Spurs superstar Kawhi Leonard being shipped to Canada for DeMar DeRozan — but the dust is finally beginning to settle some, allowing us to make sense of what has happened.Two things have become relatively clear: 1) This was a lean, challenging year for players who might have otherwise taken long-term deals, as around half of the pacts this summer have been for a single season; 2) With Cousins in tow, the Warriors may be in a league of their own again when it comes to contending for the title.But that doesn’t mean we can’t give a brief rundown of the teams that have wowed, disappointed or befuddled us this offseason. Here’s our look at the good, the bad and the confusing from the past month.WinnersIndiana PacersThe Pacers were arguably the league’s biggest surprise last season, going from what many analysts figured would be a lottery team after the Paul George trade with Oklahoma City to one win away from knocking out LeBron and the Cavaliers in the first round. An enormous part of that, of course, was Victor Oladipo having a better statistical campaign than George en route to becoming an All-Star and winning the Most Improved Player award.The other element flew under the radar but was just as integral: Indiana’s offense, gladly taking what the defense gave it, went against the grain and launched far more midrange jump shots than any other club, essentially making the Pacers the antithesis of the Rockets. With a group of decent jump-shooters, the strategy worked. But as a team that doesn’t shoot a ton of threes or get to the line much (Indiana had the NBA’s fifth-lowest 3-point attempt rate and the fifth-worst free-throw rate), the Pacers could have entered the 2018-19 season somewhat vulnerable to opponents who can score in bunches more quickly and efficiently.But inking perpetual-motion sharpshooter Doug McDermott should make Indiana less predictable and more of a threat from outside. And Tyreke Evans — who has quietly shot nearly 39 percent from the arc over the past three years after shooting about 28 percent in his first six seasons — was a solid, under-the-radar pickup who should be a huge upgrade over Lance Stephenson.Kyle O’Quinn, who came over for the room exception at one year and $4.5 million, will fit right in with the Pacers’ offensive philosophy; he hit better than 44 percent of his long 2s last season. He can get himself in trouble as a playmaker, but he’ll be a more-than-adequate backup to Myles Turner or Domantas Sabonis.Almost no analyst will pick the Pacers to land a top-three seed in the East. But should the Celtics, Raptors or Sixers struggle out of the gate, it wouldn’t be that surprising if Indiana did just that. The Pacers finished just outside the top 10 last season in both offensive and defensive efficiency — a hint that they weren’t far from contention. If things break right for them this year, they could reach that level with their improved roster.Memphis GrizzliesJust when we thought we had left the Grit-n-Grind era behind us, it found its way back into our hearts and, soon enough, onto the court at FedEx Forum.The Grizzlies battled through a miserable year that included the firing of coach David Fizdale after he and center Marc Gasol failed to see eye-to-eye, and that was after losing point guard Mike Conley to a heel injury that eventually led to season-ending surgery. From the outside, a total teardown might have seemed like the best course of action. But for a small-market franchise — which has big-money deals on the books and is already dealing with attendance problems — that avenue might have been too dire, leading the club to reload instead.Memphis did so by trying to get back to what made it special a few years ago: It loaded up on solid players who aren’t the most glitzy but tend to get the job done on both ends of the floor.While they started that process at the draft with forward Jaren Jackson Jr. — a player whom FiveThirtyEight’s projection models like a great deal — the Grizzlies also landed advanced-stats darling Kyle Anderson, who ranked second among small forwards in Defensive Real Plus-Minus this past season. With his ball-handling ability and size, Anderson is a lower-scoring, better-defending version of the Grizzlies’ Chandler Parsons, who has been sapped by injuries in recent years. Memphis also picked up wing Garrett Temple, a reliable defender and 39-percent 3-point shooter this past year, from Sacramento via trade.It’s not often that a 22-win team jumps into the playoff conversation without adding a bona fide star. But merely getting healthy again after adding this many capable two-way players could let the Grizzlies improve by leaps and bounds.LosersPortland Trail BlazersSimilar to how the Raptors needed a shakeup after multiple seasons fizzled out in a similar manner, the Blazers seemingly needed one in 2017-18, too. Even after realizing they couldn’t go about things the exact same way and altering a handful of schematic details, those fixes weren’t nearly enough, and the club got swept in the first round by Anthony Davis and the Pelicans.But the beatdown didn’t bring about big changes for the West’s No. 3 seed. Instead, the Blazers brought back restricted free agent center Jusuf Nurkic (who’s highly productive when he’s not getting whacked in the face) while losing solid bench contributors in guard Shabazz Napier and reserve big Ed Davis.1Seth Curry may be able to replace Napier’s production, and the hope is that skilled big man Zach Collins can play a bigger role in his second year.If there’s a sour taste in the mouths of Blazers fans, though, it should stem from the notion that Portland could have — and possibly would have — completed a sign-and-trade for Cousins had it not been that he and Nurkic have representatives who work for the same agency, potentially creating a conflict. Such a deal would have provided the sort of shakeup that a capped-out team like Portland needs. Instead, we may see this team — one of the few that enjoyed good health last year — finish near the bottom of the playoff pool in the West.Houston RocketsAny way you slice it, it’s tough to make sense of the Rockets’ offseason. This team was one decent half away from knocking off the vaunted Warriors and reaching the NBA Finals when its players short-circuited and couldn’t make a 3-pointer to save their lives.The Rockets were close enough that you could almost understand bringing back the same team to try again. But instead, Houston lost starting forward Trevor Ariza right out of the gate (granted, for big money at $15 million this season with a young Phoenix team). Then Luc Mbah a Moute followed suit, rejoining the Clippers about a week later for just one year and $4.3 million. Both were enormous contributors to the Rockets’ vast defensive improvement, and they played key roles in the team’s switch-everything scheme, a must-have against a club like Golden State, which screens away from the ball so well.Houston’s interest in Carmelo Anthony wasn’t terribly surprising, after it pursued him the year before. Yet while there’s a chance Anthony plays far better with the Rockets than he did in a down year with Oklahoma City, it’s hard to see him being much better than either of the two aforementioned wing players, given how Anthony is frequently exploited on defense.James Ennis may help in replacing the lost production on D, and getting guard De’Anthony Melton in the second round of the draft was seemingly a steal. Still, with the gap between the Rockets and Warriors as small as it was in the postseason, you get the feeling that these moves might have widened the chasm.Somewhere in betweenChicago BullsEven if you don’t think Zach LaVine is worth the four years and $78 million that the Bulls ponied up to keep him from becoming a Sacramento King, the logic is clear: LaVine, at one point, was the centerpiece of what Chicago got in the Jimmy Butler deal last summer.What’s tougher to understand is the logic behind pairing LaVine with free agent Jabari Parker.Yes, this ACL-hobbled duo has clear scoring chops, and both are just 23. But neither can really defend on the wing just yet, potentially making life far more challenging for impressive youngster Wendell Carter Jr. than it should be this early on.“Well, I don’t know — I just stick to my strengths,” Parker said when asked about defense during a Chicago radio interview. “Look at everybody in the league. They don’t pay players to play defense. … I’m not gonna say I won’t, but to say that’s a weakness is like saying that’s everybody’s weakness. I’ve scored 30s and 20s off of guys who say they try to play defense.”The Parker deal, for two years and $40 million, isn’t awful. The second year of the contract is a team option, giving the Bulls an out if he doesn’t return to form. But the biggest challenge, and one that gives analysts around the league pause, is his defense. Statistically, Parker has surrendered2By percentage, with a minimum of 5,000 possessions against. more blow-by opportunities on D than any other NBA player over the past three seasons, according to data from Second Spectrum. Some of that, of course, stems from the head-scratching scheme the Bucks used for so long. But other times, it was a function of Parker playing out of position at small forward, where he’s not quick enough to stay in front.It’s safe to assume that someone — be it Parker, the guy he’s guarding or both — is going to score a lot next season. We look forward to seeing who gets the upper hand.Los Angeles LakersNo one is knocking the LeBron signing itself. (How could you?) But add me to the list of people who have struggled to understand the free-agent signings around him.Regardless of whether you plan to have James control the ball a ton or you prefer that he operates more from the post, he would benefit most by having a stable of capable jump-shooters to give him the time and space he needs to create scoring chances.For the better part of eight years, James’s rosters have generally featured several shooting specialists who afford him ample room to drive and kick. A number of players — James Jones, Mike Miller, Shane Battier, Ray Allen, Mario Chalmers, Matthew Dellavedova, JR Smith, Kyle Korver, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, just to name a few — have logged seasons in which they shot 40 percent or better3On 100 attempts or more. from deep when playing alongside James. By contrast, no one on this Lakers roster — outside of James — has ever logged even one season of 40 percent or better.4On 100 attempts or more.This might be an arbitrary threshold. Aside from the fact that many players on this club are in the early stages of their career, Brandon Ingram shot 39.0 percent from there last year, and Josh Hart was at 39.6 percent. And it seems a given that the team’s best young players stand to take massive steps forward by playing with a great setup man who demands so much of the opponent’s attention.The bigger question, in light of comments he made during the NBA Finals, is whether this team will possess the sort of collective basketball IQ that James feels he needs around him. We know Rajon Rondo, however combustible he might be, is set in that regard. But the additions of Stephenson and JaVale McGee were tougher to square from that standpoint.At their best, with the right surroundings, Stephenson and McGee can lead the NBA in triple-doubles and wreak havoc in pick-and-roll scenarios, respectively. At their worst, they create blooper reels. We have no idea which versions will emerge. But rest assured: LeBron and the youthful Lakers will be anything but boring as we tune in to find out. read more

Ohio State mens lacrosse to face UMBC in first 2016 game at

OSU sophomore attacker Colin Chell (22) prepares to shoot during a scrimmage against The Hill Academy on Jan. 30. Credit: Kylie Bryant | | For The LanternThe Ohio State men’s lacrosse team is gearing up to host the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in the Buckeyes’ first game in Ohio Stadium of the 2016 season on Friday.OSU (2-1) is coming off its first loss of the season last week against Massachusetts. The team looked disorganized in the second half, which led to a 16-9 defeat at the hands of the Minutemen.“I think guys are really taking it on themselves as more a personal thing and something that we need to fix within ourselves,” redshirt junior midfielder and co-captain Tyler Pfister said. “We’re definitely learning from it but not dwelling on it.”OSU coach Nick Myers said the team is evaluating last week’s performance, but he does not want his guys to get hung up on it.“There’s been some reflection off of what we thought was a really disappointing loss,” Myers said. “We’re trying to put that behind us now and focus on us and prepare for a very good team that’s coming into Columbus on Friday night.”UMBC is arriving in Columbus on the heels of a loss to Richmond in its first game of the season by a score of 7-5. The team had a disappointing campaign last year, going 5-8. Still, Myers said he fully expects the program to have a bounceback year.“I just think, top to bottom, it’s a team that’s very disciplined,” he said. “We’re going to have to really work hard as a collective group to have success on Friday night.”UMBC is led by its pair of senior captains: attacker Nate Lewnes and defender Zach Esser.Esser guides a defense that allowed seven goals in the team’s first game. Last year, he became the first defender in the history of UMBC to earn back-to-back America East first-team honors.One of the focuses heading into Friday’s game for the Buckeyes will be stopping the Retrievers’ pair of experienced attackers: Lewnes and junior Max Maxwell.Lewnes saw his 18-game goal-scoring streak, which was sixth in the country at the time, end in the team’s loss to Richmond. A co-captain, Lewnes is the leader of the offense and has been a model of consistency over his first three years at UMBC.Maxwell, who scored a goal last week against Richmond, earned all-rookie team honors as a freshman.OSU senior midfielder and co-captain Kacy Kapinos stressed the importance of the defense playing together in order to stop the UMBC attack.“We have a great, close (defensive) unit in Robby Haus, Chris Mahoney and Erik Evans. It’s just playing team defense,” Kapinos said. “It’s not two guys shutting them down –— it’s everybody talking, communicating (and) making sure we’re all on the same page.” The game is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. on Friday at the ‘Shoe.Man-up opportunityOne thing the Buckeyes will look to improve on this week is the man-up. The man-up, or extra-man opportunity, is akin to the power play in hockey. In these situations, the offense has a one-man advantage because a penalty on the other team forces a player to stay off the field for a duration of time.OSU sophomore defender Erik Evans (43) controls the ball during a scrimmage against The Hill Academy on Jan. 30. Credit: Kylie Bryant | | For The LanternOSU has struggled in capitalizing on these opportunities so far this year. The team went 0-4 in man-up opportunities last week against UMass, including failing to score on one occasion when the Minutemen were two players down after a succession of penalties.“We have to give it to UMass,” Kapinos said. “They did a good job in man-down and picked off a couple of our passes.”The Buckeyes have struggled in this area the whole season, only capitalizing on two of their 12 man-up opportunities, which ranks them tied for 47th nationally. “We’re trying to find the right pieces and the right fit, but that’s a fine line,” Myers said of the man-up unit. “We’re going to keep chipping away at it. I’ve got a lot of confidence in that group.”National showcaseFriday’s game against UMBC will be OSU’s first time this year playing in front of a nationally televised audience, as the game is scheduled to be aired on ESPNU.“Playing in the ‘Shoe too is something that guys are really looking forward to, and I think is going to be a motivator for us going into it,” Pfister said.Myers said he knows his team is excited to play in front of viewers across the country, but he wants the team to stay focused on the task at hand.“I think the opportunity, anytime you’re on national TV, to not only play well but to just showcase what Buckeye lacrosse is all about is a responsibility,” Myers said. “But at the end of the day, it’s the next game on our schedule.”What’s nextAfter Friday’s game against UMBC, the Buckeyes are set to host the Midwest Lacrosse Classic. OSU is scheduled play Marquette on March 4 and Bellarmine on March 6. The games are slated for 6 p.m. and 3 p.m., respectively, at the ‘Shoe. read more
