Neither Mission nor Prudence in Kim’s Expression

A corrupt system like this absolutely will collapse. It reminds me of the Soviet Union right before it collapsed,” he reportedly goes on. “The people’s trust in the North Korean leadership collapsed thanks to the currency redenomination,” he also comments in an e-mail dated December 13th, shortly before the death of Kim Jong Il on the 17th. “An ageing leader, an inexperienced successor and a sunk economy… nations surrounding North Korea can’t help seeing it as dangerous.”“North Korea passed responsibility onto Party Planning and Finance head Park Nam Ki and executed him, but the people all know perfectly well that the currency redenomination could not have been done by a mere cadre,” he adds.Kim also offers a withering critique of the North Korean regime’s propagandist media in a November exchange, saying of Workers’ Party publication Rodong Shinmun, which is now available in print and online in both Korean and English, “They don’t have enough paper to print it so people can’t read it. For the electronic version you need to have a computer, but how many North Korean people actually have one… and even if they do, there is no electricity so how are they going to use it.”The formerly unreleased set of e-mails are to be officially released by Japanese monthly magazine Bungeishunju in its March edition, but were revealed by South Korean daily newspaper Donga Ilbo today.

Big Ten drug policies differ among schools

first_imgAmong Big Ten schools, the penalties for failed drug tests vary between the first, second and third offenses. “The NCAA’s doping policy is outdated, and there needs to be more consistency among schools,” Hainline told the Wall Street Journal. “Our first priority is that we’re providing great care from a health and safety standpoint because we’re really worried about their well-being,” she said. Across the NCAA, student-athlete drug policies differ, a problem the association’s administration wants to fix. But creating one uniform policy might not be as easy as it seems.  He said the educational counseling component of the disciplinary action is overlooked but important. “There are issues that are more prevalent in different areas of the country, so they could possibly be handled more efficiently at the institutional level than waiting for the minutiae and bureaucracy of the NCAA,” said Chris Hawthorne, a Big Ten representative for the Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and a formerGophers football player.  Several other Big Ten schools including Ohio State, Nebraska and Wisconsin don’t require a suspension on the first offense. If the student-athlete fails his or her first NCAA-issued drug test, the penalties are much more  stringent and include the loss of a year of eligibility and a full-season suspension. “In my opinion, it makes no sense to punish a kid if you’re not going to allow and encourage them to learn from the experience,” Hawthorne said. If a student-athlete at Rutgers failed a drug test for the first time, he or she may be suspended for up to two weeks. Brian Hainline, who was named the NCAA’s first chief medical officer in 2012, said it’s time to find common ground, taking the responsibility out of individual school’s hands. center_img The group shares it by email with all student-athletes before the school year. It’s also in the student-athlete handbook, and all freshmen are educated on it in their orientation, said deputy athletics director Beth Goetz  At Minnesota, a group that includes the athletic department’s sports medicine staff, sports psychologists and officials from Boynton Health Service reassess the school’s drug policy for student-athletes each year. The men’s basketball program at Syracuse also received heavy sanctions from the committee in March for failing to abide by their drug policy, among other violations. Many student-athletes may not realize usage of Adderall could lead to a failed drug test, Hawthorne said. Still, he said student-athletes shouldn’t put themselves into that risky situation. NCAA spokespeople did not return calls for comment for this story. Big Ten drug policies differ among schools Sam KraemerApril 30, 2015Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintWith the amount of change the NCAA has undergone in recent years, rectifying inconsistent drug policies from school to school may be next on the docket. Just last week, the NCAA Committee on Infractions put Oklahoma State’s football program on a one-year probation after concluding the team failed to follow the school’s own drug policy for student-athletes. For example, if a student-athlete at Minnesota failed a drug test for the first time, he or she would be required to do 20 hours of community service. The same applies for Iowa.  Hawthorne referenced the abuse of Adderall — the prescription drug that enhances concentration —  by students and student-athletes alike during exam periods. With all of the differences, Hainline told the Wall Street Journal he hopes for the autonomy conferences to draft a collective policy, rather than the current school-by-school basis. “If you’re a student-athlete, you’re coming to school for academics and athletics. There’s no place for abusive drugs to occur in my opinion,” Hawthorne said. “There’s a culture of abuse right now, and we need to do a better job of combating it.”last_img read more

(AP Photo/Austin American- Statesman, Ricardo B.

The future of USF football is very bright under his direction.”The Bulls went 10-2 this season and finished second in the American Athletic Conference East division to league champion Temple.Strong was 16-21 with no winning seasons in three years at Texas after replacing Mack Brown. Before going to Texas, Strong was 37-15 in four years at Louisville (2010-13), including 23-3 in the final two seasons.The Cardinals were in the Big East/American Athletic Conference when Strong was coach and they won at least a share of two league championships.The 56-year-old Strong has deep roots coaching in the state of Florida. He did three stints covering 13 seasons as an assistant coach at the University of Florida under Steve Spurrier, Ron Zook and Urban Meyer, mostly as defensive coordinator. He was also defensive coordinator at South Carolina from 1999-2002.“Some of the best football talent in the country is right here in the Bay Area and throughout the state of Florida, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with the young men in the USF football program and build on the strong foundation already in place,” Strong said in a statement.___More college football at Ralph D.
