Battle : D-III player Raridon works as player, custodian for North Central

first_imgDerek Raridon can’t stand the smell of sweat-drenched athletic tape. But somehow, after every North Central (Ill.) College home game, the used tape is strewn across the Cardinal’s locker room for him to pick up.‘Ankle tape is the worst to clean up by far,’ Raridon said. ‘I tell my teammates to pick it up because someone has to. That someone is generally me, though.’When Raridon isn’t playing on the court inside Merner Field House in Naperville, Ill., he’s cleaning the court, locker rooms and weight room at the facility. The 6-foot-6 forward for Division-III North Central works 20 work-study hours each week during the season as a member of the school’s custodial staff. On the floor, Raridon is a key part of North Central’s lineup. The forward is a two-time All-College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin Second Team selection. He has averaged 13.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game this season, and he became the 23rd player to score 1,000 points in school history in December.But as a custodian, Raridon picks up trash after home games, buffs the floors before basketball and volleyball games, and — unfortunately for Raridon — collects what’s left behind in the home and away locker rooms. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I’ve picked up some gross stuff,’ said Raridon, whose father, Todd Raridon, became the head coach of the Cardinals eight years ago.And Derek Raridon isn’t the first in his family to hold such a unique position. His older brother, Mitch, was the first to help the Merner Field House custodial staff during their father’s first four years at North Central. Todd Raridon said his eldest son needed to find work to offset the costs of attending North Central.‘There’s no such thing as a scholarship D-III athlete,’ Todd said. ‘Mitch started off cleaning the courts, and when Derek moved to Naperville, he started helping out, too.’Raridon was a 16-year-old high school student when his father started coaching the team, and he was in need of a summer job. Five years and probably hundreds of discarded balls of sweaty ankle tape later, Raridon considers himself a grizzled veteran of the trade.‘I’m pretty much a professional custodian,’ Raridon said, laughing. And being a ‘professional’ custodian means being ready to clean at any time, whether he’s on the clock or not. When the Cardinals returned from their holiday break to practice before a home game against Manchester (Ind.) College, they found the floors of the 81-year-old Merner Field House covered in dust. Much to the amusement of his teammates, Raridon broke out the broom and cleaned the court. And on a newly cleaned court, the Cardinals beat Manchester, 62-38.While his teammates joke with Raridon about his job as a custodian, they have a much tougher time ridiculing his basketball skills.Todd Raridon admits his son’s game is well ahead of what it used to be.‘Derek used to stay behind the (3-point) arc because he was a little scrawny,’ Todd said. ‘He’s certainly changed since then.’That change came about because of Raridon’s dual role as a player and custodian. After 40-hour work weeks during summer 2010, Raridon found himself sticking around the athletic facility.He would work on his low-post moves. He’d practice his foul shots. And after a summer of weightlifting, Raridon wasn’t the same scrawny 3-point shooter his father once saw him as. ‘I was right there (at Merner), so I felt like I’d miss out on an opportunity to improve,’ Raridon said. ‘There was no excuse to tell my dad that I didn’t stick around and work on my game.’That change helped save the Cardinals season last year, when injuries decimated the North Central frontcourt. Todd Raridon knew his son could handle the forward position, and after a summer of hard work, Raridon proved him right.Todd Raridon, the CCIW Co-Coach of the Year last season, can easily draw the connection between the time his son spends cleaning the court at Merner and his on-court performance. ‘The place has become a second home to Derek,’ Todd Raridon said. ‘He’d really do anything to improve as a player.’That improvement may come at the cost of picking up sweaty ankle tape, but if it helps his level of play and his team, Raridon is willing to keep cleaning.‘It’s actually fun to be a janitor,’ Raridon said. ‘And being in the gym is a nice perk, too.’Games of the weekGeorgia Tech 79, No. 15 Virginia 77Thursday, 8 p.m.The Cavaliers could be due for a letdown after coming so close against Duke. Glen Rice Jr. and company could take advantage here for a signature Atlantic Coast Conference win on Thursday night. No. 1 Syracuse 84, Notre Dame 66Saturday, 6 p.m.Notre Dame is a team that sorely needs some consistent scoring. Expect Syracuse to stick to what it does best: score in transition and play strong zone defense for another win.No. 3 Baylor 89, No. 5 Missouri 74Saturday, 2 p.m.Marcus Denmon isn’t enough for Missouri to give the Bears a loss here. Baylor is among the deepest teams in the nation, and even if it gets tripped up by Kansas, that’s not a testament to its talent. Perry Jones III, Quincy Miller and Quincy Acy should carry their team in this game. Tennessee 84, No. 13 Connecticut 81Saturday, 4 p.m.UConn’s inconsistency trips the Huskies up again. But don’t think this will be an easy game for the Volunteers. Tennessee should lean on the experience they gained by taking Kentucky to the brink of an upset to actually pull one off here. No. 21 Marquette 77, Providence 66Darius Johnson-Odom, Jae Crowder and the rest of the Golden Eagles should be too much for the Friars to handle. And although head coach Ed Cooley has his team playing well, it seems the Friars always play well enough to lose. Buzz Williams won’t let his team come out flat against an inferior opponent.

Shoah announces new research center

first_imgOn Friday, the USC Shoah Foundation commemorated its 20th anniversary with an event featuring trustee Steven Spielberg and USC President C. L. Max Nikias.Building upon its current success, the Shoah Foundation  announced its intent to establish the Center for Advanced Genocide Research. The center will be housed within the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences with the purpose of examining the causes of genocide and methods of prevention and intervention.“We are honored to establish this vital center of scholarship and learning,” Nikias said. “The University of Southern California is, and will always remain, committed to creating a world freed from genocide. Through the Center for Advanced Genocide Research, we resolve to have a global impact on the real-world problem of genocide.”Over the past 20 years, the Shoah Foundation has archived nearly 52,000 audiovisual interviews with genocide survivors and witnesses. These testimonies include ones from the Holocaust, the Rwandan Tutsi genocide and as of last Thursday, the Armenian genocide. The new center will give USC the unique privilege of being the only private research institution with this original material.Steven A. Kay, dean of the Dornsife College, commentated the event and hosted a panel of three of the Shoah Foundation’s key members: Stephen D. Smith, executive director, Wolf Gruner, soon-to-be director of the new center and Beth Meyerowitz, vice provost of Faculty Affairs.“By combining ongoing research with the vast amounts of information already collected by the USC Shoah Foundation, I believe we will be able to decode the conditions that can lead to genocide,” Kay said.The members of the panel commented on the significance of the center and the ways in which it will utilize the archive in conjunction with interdisciplinary study. Through the center, experts across different fields will be challenged to explore and decode the roots of genocide.“We’ve amassed something greater than the sum of its parts,” Smith said. “Each one of those individual stories was creating the opportunity to dig very deeply into the granularity of genocide. By building on the robust genocide research opportunities already in place at USC, we will be in a position to have a real impact in the field.”The Center of Advanced Genocide Research will facilitate and continue the impressive research of the USC Shoah Foundation.“The world now has a beacon of hope in breaking the cycle that leads to mass violence,” Spielberg said. “The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research, where steps incremental and monumental will be made in this march to make ‘Never Again’ a reality.”last_img read more

Man City ‘will prevail’ in UEFA FFP investigation – Chairman

first_imgPositionPlayerSigned byPrice StrikerRomelu LukakuMan Utd£90m Source: Sky Sports Manchester City “will unquestionably prevail” in the investigation by a UEFA panel into allegations they breached Financial Fair Play rules, says club chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak.In March, German publication Der Spiegel released files, including hacked emails, from Football Leaks which appeared to show City inflating sponsorship income. City deny any wrongdoing.UEFA convened a panel to investigate the materials, and Sky Sports News understands they are expected to recommend City receive a one-year ban from the Champions League.Al Mubarak, who was brought to City when the Abu Dhabi United Group completed its takeover in 2008, is “confident” they will come through the ordeal unscathed. “The football world is very small and word comes around very quickly so you know, when someone somewhere in a leading position in any club says something, or briefs something, guess what? We know about it.“The reality is, we didn’t buy the most expensive player in the Premier League, we didn’t buy the most expensive goalkeeper, we didn’t buy the most expensive midfielder, we didn’t buy the most expensive striker, so when people throw that, you know what they throw at us, I go back – let’s look at facts; let’s talk about facts.” Most expensive player by position in Premier Leaguecenter_img MidfielderPaul PogbaMan Utd£93.25m DefenderVirgil van DijkLiverpool£75m GoalkeeperKepa ArrizabalagaChelsea£71.6m “Am I uncomfortable? No. I respect regulatory bodies doing their job and any regulatory process that asks questions,” said Al Mubarak, in a wide-ranging end of season interview with City’s internal media.“We have to professionally respond which is what we have done. We are dealing with each of these entities as per the process, we have clear answers.“I believe, quite comfortably, if the process is going to be judged on facts then unquestionably we will prevail. If it’s not about facts and it’s about other things, then it is a different conversation.”Tebas comments ‘hypocritical’ and ‘ironic’ – Al MubarakLa Liga president Javier Tebas on Tuesday accused City and Qatari-owned Paris Saint-Germain of “inflating the market” with their state-sponsored cash – “one-off petrol-money, one-off gas”, he said.Al Mubarak says “there is hypocrisy in this statement that is ironic” because Spain’s top clubs have historically been responsible for “these huge jumps in transfer” fees. He also suggested a racist undertone to Tebas’ comments.“I think there’s something deeply wrong in bringing ethnicity into the conversation,” he said. “This is just ugly. I think the way he is combining teams because of ethnicity. I find that very disturbing to be honest.”Responding to the Tebas’ comments on spending, he added: “Number one, let’s look at the Spanish league, the time of breaking records on player acquisitions, I mean, who started that?“Let’s go back to the world records, Figo, Zidane. You know, the history, you have to look back at the history of La Liga, a league dominated by two clubs and Mr Tebas should look back at the history of that league and how distortion has happened throughout the ages.“And then you look back at transfers. In the top 10 transfers of all time, Manchester City has not a single player in that, not a single one. So I don’t really take it seriously and I ask our fans to always put it in context.“And I think people with glass homes shouldn’t be throwing rocks. I’m happy to talk to anyone as long as the conversation is about facts but once we start talking about innuendo and talking about theories I have no time for that.”‘Not just an attack on City, but the Premier League’Al Mubarak believes Tebas’ criticism is driven by the growing success of the Premier League, with all four spots in this season’s European finals occupied by English teams.“You have four Premier League teams in the two European finals and that’s a fact and that bothers a lot of people in many places. I find it very strange that coming back here in the UK…. we have to be protecting that,” he said.“We have the best league in the world, we have the most commercial league in the world, the most successful clubs in the world, economically, commercially in terms of global presence, and that’s why this attack is not just on Manchester City, it’s against this league.“And I hope people start seeing that and start – I know people don’t want to defend Manchester City – but for God’s sake start defending this league.”‘We didn’t buy the PL’s most expensive player…’Al Mubarak also turned his attention’s to perceived “jealousy” and “envy” City face from their Premier League rivals, following an historic domestic treble for the club.“I will not accept for this club to be used as a diversionary tactic on poor investment decisions from other clubs,” he added.“We’ve managed ourselves well and we will be judged by facts and facts alone. This is a well-run club. That’s a fact.“With success there is a certain level of jealousy, envy, whatever you call it. You know when Man United dominated the Premier League for many years, they know what they had to deal with for so many years, that’s part of the game.last_img read more
