first_imgFarley Hall is hosting its signature event, Farley Hall Be Fine Day, on Friday to encourage conversations about femininity and raise money for the YWCA Women’s Shelter in North Central Indiana.The event began Thursday with an open mic night in the Farley basement. Throughout Friday, Farley residents will be handing out buttons and bananas outside DeBartolo Hall to encourage healthy eating, hosting yoga on North Quad at 1 p.m. and hosting a “Walk in Her Shoes” walk in high heels across South Quad at 5 p.m.Senior Yomara Acevedo, one of the event’s coordinators, said when the event was started during her sophomore year, it received a lot of backlash.“I thought it was a fun and interesting event, but it just sparked a lot of controversy that may or may not have been a good thing for an inaugural year,” she said. “So then last year … I remember it just being really watered down.“ … It wasn’t sparking any conversations. Part of this is we want to spark conversations on what it means to be feminine. So this year we’re trying to find a balance between it.”Junior Carly Gray, Farley Hall vice president, said they wanted to incorporate the word “fine” — Farley’s mascot — into their signature event’s slogan, eventually settling on the phrase “Today, I’m at my finest.”“Even if it does change year to year, we think we’ll still have a stronger message for the day than we have in the past and a concrete set of events that people can point to, and say, ‘That’s what Be Fine Day is about,’” Gray said.According to junior Micaela Mitchell, one of the Be Fine Day coordinators, the “Walk in Her Shoes” event will raise funds for the YWCA women’s shelter in North Central Indiana. The Be Fine Day Facebook page features stories from some of the women at the shelter, Mitchell said.“ … A lot of them were domestic violence victims,” she said. “One of them was a meth addict after her domestic abuse. They all were really positive and really emphasized that they have a place and a purpose and YWCA has really helped them find that, and find friends and find housing.“I think the most shocking about that was most of them were from different states — faraway states like Alabama, Florida — one of them is from Chicago — and they were escaping people.”Gray said she hoped the walk would also ignite conversations between men and women about femininity.“One of the goals of our event is sparking conversation and dialogue about different expressions of femininity and certain things that apply to women that wouldn’t apply to men — or at least men that don’t conform to feminine stereotypes, or something like that,” she said. “So we hope the walk will do that while also raising awareness about the Women’s Shelter, and also raising money for them as well.”Mitchell said Be Fine Day’s organizers wanted Be Fine Day to be an inclusive event, while still focusing on discussions about femininity.“ … We really tried to find a way to highlight the differences between men and women, but still create a dialogue so that we were still focusing on our goals and ideas, but we weren’t excluding people from engaging in that,” she said.Junior Lauren Saunee, Farley Hall president, said she hopes the event works to draw the community’s attention to the issues Be Fine Day addresses.“I think that at the end of the day, if people are talking, that’s what we want,” she said. “And also — bringing awareness, too. We talked about the women’s shelter. There [are] so many different charities in South Bend, but this is something we obviously have invested an interest in so just bringing that to the surface.”Acevedo said the ultimate goal of Be Fine Day is to recognize all types of femininity.“We want to emphasize, ‘If you’re athletic, you’re still a queen, and if you’re really, really feminine and you like dressing up, you’re also a queen,’” she said. “We want to highlight and celebrate all forms of femininity, whether you really like makeup and you really like dressing up, or you don’t.”Tags: Be Fine Day, Farley Hall, signature eventlast_img read more

first_imgBack to “being us every night,” as Clippers forward Moe Harkless said after practice Friday, when the Clippers prepared for the slumping Minnesota Timberwolves, who showed up at Staples Center toting a 10-game losing streak.“It’s a difference when we’re the aggressors and when we’re kind of playing lackadaisical, a little,” said Harkless, who changed his jersey number last week to 11 from 8, out of respect for Bryant. “When we’re the aggressors, it’s a beautiful thing to watch for us.”A 40-point first quarter was a good look, but the prettiest sight of all for Rivers was the healthy roster at his disposal.“It was nice,” said the Clippers coach, who had all of his players at his disposal in Saturday’s 118-106 victory for the first time since Christmas and for just the second time all season – although Paul George’s minutes were limited in his second game back from a hamstring strain that cost him nine games.Even with limited doses of George, the Clippers (34-15) improved to 15-4 when George and Kawhi Leonard both play. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES — The Clippers recently diagnosed themselves with a case of the slow starts, a malady they sought to remedy Saturday afternoon at Staples Center, where the previous night the Lakers held an emotional tribute to Kobe Bryant before their game against the Portland Trail Blazers.On Saturday afternoon, Bryant’s retired jersey Nos. 8 and 24 remained visible in the rafters and 8 and 24 jerseys spotted the arena, often paired by fans with a Clippers’ hat or jacket, as the Clippers avoided losing a second consecutive game after stumbling Thursday against Sacramento.“I thought they had a better focus,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “And honestly, just being honest, going through this last week, I didn’t know if it was focus. It was a tough one as a coach to hold anyone accountable.“But now you can feel it. The game last night was important for the league, I think, and now you can feel everybody, we can get back to basketball.”center_img And they improved to 29-8 when at least Leonard plays – and 7-2 in the past nine games, when Leonard has been a tear, scoring 30 or more points in each.Hours before returning to San Diego State for a day in his honor and a jersey retirement ceremony, Leonard extended that streak Saturday with 31 points in 24 minutes. He now has the second-longest 30-point scoring streak in franchise history.“He’s playing as well as anyone in the league right now and he’s doing it all around,” said Rivers of Leonard, who also had six rebounds and four assists. “It’s not just scoring, he’s doing it with his defense, with his passing. The best part of it, it’s coming in the flow. It’s not a forced 30. It’s just ball movement, he’s going downhill, he’s getting his shots and it doesn’t stand out some nights. You’re looking at a box score like, ‘Wow, he had 30?’ That’s a great sign.”The Clippers – who shot 45.9% (45 for 98) and limited Minnesota to a 17.9 (7 for 39) 3-point percentage – fended off Karl-Anthony Town and his T-Wolves with substantial first- and third-quarter outputs, before resting Leonard for all of the final period.George scored seven of his 21 points – and of the Clippers’ 20 – in the fourth quarter. He logged 25 minutes.Four other Clippers finished in double figures, including Lou Williams (17), Montrezl Harrell (16), Patrick Beverley (12) and Landry Shamet (10). Shamet has scored in double figures for the nine consecutive game.Towns finished with a game-high 32 points for the Timberwolves (15-33) on 11-for-22 shooting.last_img read more
