A generation skewed by internet pornography

first_imgThe Telegraph (UK) 1 June 2012A generation of youngsters may be developing a skewed view of sex from pornography, a court has heard, after a 12-year-old schoolboy raped and sexually assaulted a younger girl after copying a hardcore film he watched on the internet. The case was just the ‘tip of the iceberg’ and said there may be many similar   cases throughout the country, lawyers warned. The High Court in Edinburgh heard the boy, now aged 14, was allowed   “unfettered” access to adult websites before forcing a nine-year-old to   perform a sex act on him. Sean Templeton, the boy’s defence counsel, said the case could be “the tip of   the iceberg” because pornography is giving a generation of youngsters a   “skewed view” of sex.…The appalling details of the case emerged amid growing political debate as to whether the Government should force internet providers to adopt an “opt-in” system. This means parents would have to remove a default block on watching pornography on their home computers, thereby preventing their offspring accessing adult images.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/9303598/A-generation-is-growing-up-skewed-by-internet-pornography-court-hears-as-12-year-old-who-raped-a-schoolgirl-is-spared-jail.htmllast_img read more

Magennis called up to replace Ward

first_imgDerby forward Jamie Ward has been ruled out of Northern Ireland’s World Cup qualifying double header next week, with Aberdeen’s Josh Magennis replacing him. In that time he has still scored 11 goals and would have been under strong consideration by manager Michael O’Neill, particularly for Friday’s clash against Russia, which first-choice striker Kyle Lafferty misses through suspension. Martin Paterson, back after a brief self-imposed international break, will now be favourite to lead the line at Windsor Park. But O’Neill has also given himself additional cover by adding Magennis to the group. The versatile 22-year-old can play at full-back and in midfield but also offers a physical aspect in attack. He came on as a late substitute in last month’s friendly against Malta but had not been named in O’Neill’s initial squad. He returns to the fold with confidence high, though, having scored twice for the Dons in a 4-3 defeat at Celtic on Saturday. A statement from the Irish FA read: “Injury has forced Jamie Ward to withdraw from the Northern Ireland squad. Aberdeen’s Josh Magennis has been called up to the squad for the World Cup Qualifiers against Russia and Israel.” Ward, who has four caps and was in line to feature in home clashes against Russia and Israel, started on Saturday against Leicester but lasted just 63 minutes. The 26-year-old has suffered a string of injuries in the last couple of seasons and has managed only 20 appearances for the Rams this term. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Juventus rule out Claudio Marchisio move to Liverpool

first_img “We have renewed with him, our focus is strong and I think Claudio’s first thought is to finish his career here. Not only Liverpool, we have received several offers.” Marchisio, a Juve youth product, signed a five-year contract in July to remain with the Old Lady until June 2020. Marotta also spoke of turning down offers for coveted France international Paul Pogba. “There were offers from other clubs formalised, but we have rejected them because Paul is the heritage of the club,” Marotta said. “Maybe we have loaded him with many responsibilities, but this will help him to become a leader.” Marchisio has been linked with a move to Anfield to work under new Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, but Marotta believes the 29-year-old is going nowhere – despite the Bianconeri having received “several offers”. “We get so many offers for our players, but we are used to buying – not selling,” Marotta told Premium Sport shortly before Juve’s 0-0 Serie A draw at Inter Milan on Sunday evening. Italy midfielder Claudio Marchisio is not interested in joining Liverpool and wants to finish his career with Juventus, according to the Turin club’s chief executive Giuseppe Marotta. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Holt: Lebron would be ‘tight’ addition to needy Browns squad

first_imgThere are two running punchlines in the NFL right now. One involves Al Davis of the Oakland Raiders. The other is any kind of reference to the Cleveland Browns.Since becoming a franchise again in 1999, the Browns are 55-114. They’ve made the playoffs once in that span, losing a wild card game in 2002. In their best season, the 2007 campaign, they didn’t even make the postseason despite finishing 10-6.It’s not just the Browns that have Cleveland struggling either. The Indians got to watch their former Cy Young winners CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee face off in the World Series this year — for teams not based out of Cleveland. Even the city itself is pretty demoralizing; I mean, you can buy a house for the price of a VCR (Hastily made Cleveland tourism video anyone?). And I’ve been to Cleveland once, so I can make this kind of sweeping, generalized statement.However, there is one shining star for every sports fan in Cleveland. Obviously I’m talking about LeBron James; even people who don’t know a free throw from a touchdown know James is pretty much the best player in the NBA right now. James is the reason citizens of Cleveland will reply “Who?” to any conversation about the Browns.So prior to the Cavaliers’ game Tuesday, James told reporters that “if I dedicated myself to the game of football, I could be really good, no matter what team I was on.” This was in response to ESPN’s Monday Night Football crew waxing poetic about the NBA star’s NFL potential. All them smart guys at ESPN have been parading the possibility of James becoming a tight end for over a year now. It got brought back up again Monday because it’s a great idea, and, well, you have to have something to talk about during a Browns game.Even Browns head coach Eric Mangini wants James to make the crossover. Reporters asked the coach and players what they thought about the idea and Cleveland quarterback Brady Quinn was also on board, saying, “Tell him to suit up and let us know. We’ll get him working. Obviously he’s an incredibly talented athlete. If he wants to try to play a little bit now, we’d be more than willing to pick him up.”Of course you’d be willing to pick him up. The Browns would pick up 57-year-old Lynn Swann if he came out of retirement, that’s how pathetic their offense is. Cleveland could start Johnny Unitas at quarterback and improve its production at the position.But all joking aside, let’s consider this for a minute. James is a freak of nature athletically. He’s marketable. He’s given the idea thought. James shouldn’t be considering a move to the New York Knicks next year, he should be thinking of trading the hardwood for the gridiron.LeBron James needs to play football. And yes, I am dead serious.You might be saying, “Adam, you’re an idiot! That has to be the worst idea I’ve ever heard. Why would he ditch his all-everything NBA career?” Well you know what, maybe it is the worst idea I’ve ever heard too. But it just might be bad enough to work.See, James has a history of football. He was all-state in high school as a wide receiver, but quit football to focus on basketball. In those two first-team All-Ohio seasons, he had over 1,800 yards and 27 touchdowns.He’s also got the body for it. James is 6 feet 8 inches and anywhere between 250 and 275 pounds, depending on who you listen to. He’s got the height, he’s got the athleticism (for reference, see any time he’s ever dunked) and he’s got the stature. And No. 23 also has a 7-foot wingspan and 44-inch vertical, meaning Quinn can just lob balls up in the air without looking (as he tends to do) and reasonably expect James to come down with them.And forget the fact that he hasn’t played football since high school. The San Diego Chargers’ Antonio Gates is one of the best tight ends in the NFL right now and Gates played basketball in college. After NBA scouts told Gates he was too small for the league, he decided he’d just forget basketball and become an All-Pro tight end — no big deal, right?Tony Gonzalez, the NFL’s other premier tight end has a basketball history as well. Gonzalez, arguably the best tight end ever, played on both the football and basketball teams while at Cal. Seventy-eight pro touchdowns later and Gonzalez is a lock for the Hall of Fame. Apparently basketball is a precursor to success as an NFL tight end.At this point, you might be thinking of another No. 23 who decided to take a break from basketball to play another sport. But let’s think less “Michael Jordan” and more “Bo Jackson.” Catching footballs for the Browns is a little easier than toiling in the White Sox’s minor league system. And while neither is an enviable undertaking, the idea of watching James leap over linebackers and toss defensive backs like small children is infinitely more entertaining.There is the issue of job security — James is a bona fide NBA superstar and there’s no guarantee he would succeed in the NFL. But it’s a chance he should take, especially right now. James’ contract with the Cavaliers is up after this season and New York would love to bring King James to Madison Square Garden in 2010.But the Knicks — to put it nicely — suck, and they suck so bad that not even James could save them. He got to see that firsthand earlier this month, when he dropped 19 points on them — just in the first quarter — en route to a 100-91 win that wasn’t as close as the final score indicated.And if Cleveland can storm its way to an NBA title this year on James’ and Shaquille O’Neal’s broad, broad shoulders, that would leave James with almost literally nothing left to accomplish in the NBA. He owns a league MVP, All-Star MVP honors and a scoring title. He’s been named to the All-NBA first team and also was a first-team all-defensive selection. If he gets his hands on the Larry O’Brien trophy, he’s just about got a career clean sweep of meaningful awards. Why not take a little break from the NBA to see what could be on the gridiron?There’s really no reason for anybody to object to the move. The Browns, as much as they need wins, need reasons for people to watch their games. The NFL would dump its trunks at the idea of marketing a crossover star like James. TV viewership for Browns games would skyrocket at least into the dozens. The Cavaliers might object, but hey, it’s Cleveland; the city is used to disappointment.James should leave the Cavs after the season — but just down the street to Cleveland Browns Stadium. The LeBron-Kobe Bryant matchup is always intriguing, but I’d rather pay to see the LeBron-Troy Polamalu bill. Worst case scenario, he sucks and goes back to the NBA to win more titles or MVPs or Nike contracts. It would take some time and dedication, but with “legendary” status pretty much locked up in one sport, he’d be stupid not to try for two.Adam is a junior majoring in journalism. So is LeBron playing football the best “worst” idea ever or what? E-mail him at aholt@badgerherald.com.last_img read more

Syracuse’s comeback attempt falls through in 11-10 loss at No. 6 Northwestern

first_imgAs Taylor Gait cleared the ball with about 2:30 left in Syracuse’s game against Northwestern, Wildcats attack Kara Mupo swung her stick, just missing Gait’s head.The missed check was enough to draw a yellow card, which gave the Orange an extra player and a chance to tie the game. SU worked the ball around until Kelly Cross promptly sent a high shot at goalie Bridget Bianco, who saved it.“We didn’t finish our shots,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “So when we had opportunities to make plays, we didn’t make one on the offensive end.”The save ended the Orange’s last attempt at a comeback and No. 5 SU (8-3, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) lost 11-10 to No. 6 NU (5-2) in Evanston, Illinois on Sunday. The Orange squandered its last chances to tie the game. Mupo, who scored five goals, led NU past the Orange in the first half and provided an answer to SU’s threats.“We couldn’t quite get to that tie situation and battle back. We kept making our runs and getting a couple goals,” Gait said. “We just need to try and continue to make shots and get back to that next level. We just didn’t get that done today.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter playing to a 3-3 tie in the game’s first 10 minutes, NU scored three goals in three minutes to temporarily pull away from the Orange. With the score 6-3, SU recovered with two goals in a little more than a minute.But Mupo found holes in the Orange’s defense and rebuffed SU’s comeback twice. Finding herself all alone against SU goalie Kelsey Richardson with 12 minutes and two minutes left in the first half, Mupo ripped two goals past Richardson, the latter of which gave Northwestern its 8-6 halftime lead.In the second half, the teams traded goals until Cross cut NU’s lead to 11-10 with 9:50 left. But after an SU timeout, attack Kailah Kempney threw the ball out of bounds on the ensuing restart.“We scrapped, we gave ourselves a chance,” Gait said. “We had at least three chances to tie the game and we didn’t get it done.”With 5:24 left in the game, Cross intercepted an NU pass and SU successfully cleared the ball. As Syracuse passed the ball around, the Wildcats were called for a three-second violation. Riley Donahue took the Orange’s free position and fired it high. Bianco cleanly saved it and cleared the ball.The score held through NU’s final game of keep-away.“It was a tough game,” Gait said. “… We just came up short at the end.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 22, 2015 at 5:19 pm Contact Chris: cjlibona@syr.edu | @ChrisLibonatilast_img read more

Woman found guilty in death of USC student

first_imgAn 18-year-old woman was found guilty Thursday of the murder of USC graduate student Xinran Ji, who was killed during an attempted robbery off campus in 2014.Photo courtesy of USC NewsA life cut short · Xinran Ji, a graduate of Zhejiang University in China who was working toward his master’s degree in electrical engineering at USC, was killed in 2014 during an attempted robbery near campus. He was 24.Jurors convicted Alejandra Guerrero on all counts for charges of first-degree murder, second-degree attempted robbery and assault with a deadly weapon in Ji’s case. She was also found guilty of second-degree robbery and assault with a deadly weapon in the case of Claudia Rocha, who was attacked several hours after the assault on Ji.The sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 28. Guerrero, who was a minor at the time the crime was committed and therefore is not eligible for the death penalty, could face up to a life sentence in prison and at minimum will be sentenced to 25 years to life. Three others — Andrew Garcia, Jonathan DelCarmen and Alberto Ochoa — are also charged with Ji’s murder, but will be tried later in the year.Jurors deliberated for just over a day before delivering the verdict in Guerrero’s case, following a two-week trial that began with opening arguments on Sept. 30. Prosecutor John McKinney presented evidence during the trial that suggested Guerrero and the others with her had specifically targeted Ji, including Facebook messages that referenced “flocking,” a term Guerrero and her peers used to describe robbing.McKinney argued that there was no evidence Guerrero had been forced to attack Ji, and that she participated of her own free will. Ji’s blood was found on the jeans Guerrero was wearing that night, and video evidence presented during the trial showed Guerrero striking Ji with a wrench, which McKinney said was one of the fatal blows.Guerrero’s attorney Errol Cook, however, argued that Guerrero was the youngest of the attackers and thus was clearly not the leader of the group. Cook presented the defense’s arguments during cross-examination of the prosecution witnesses to cast doubt on the prosecutor’s argument that Guerrero had acted willfully to kill Ji.Ji, a graduate engineering student from China, was attacked on July 24, 2014, as he was walking back to his off-campus apartment near 29th Street and Orchard Avenue. Evidence presented during the trial showed a car pulling up next to Ji and Garcia, Ochoa and Guerrero jumping out; Ochoa went after Ji with a baseball bat and struck the first blow, while Garcia followed with a second blow from the bat and Guerrero attacked Ji with a wrench.After the attack, Ji dragged himself back to his apartment and was found lifeless the next morning by his roommate. Medical reports indicate that he suffered a broken nose, internal bleeding, several skull fractures and lacerations all over his face.Ochoa and Garcia were taken into custody roughly two hours after Ji was attacked, when a man they allegedly attempted to rob called the police near Dockweiler State Beach. DelCarmen and Guerrero were arrested later that day after the robbery attempt on Claudia Rocha.Urmila Venkataramani contributed to this report.last_img read more
