The Notre Dame student senate approved new judicial council positions and discussed the implementation of Callisto for reporting sexual assaults at its meeting Wednesday.Judicial Council president Matt Ross presented his nominations for the new vice presidents of judicial council. He named freshman student Shady Girgis as vice president of elections and first-year student Myrofora Zambas as vice president of peer advocacy. With no debate nor objections, both nominees were named as vice presidents.Senate then moved on to its general orders, announcing three resolutions to bestow emeritus status on three past student-body representatives. Student body chief of staff for the past term Michael Markel, vice president Becca Blais and Student Body President Corey Robinson were all recognized.Lastly, two students presented two sexual assault awareness and prevention proposals to be instituted in Notre Dame’s 2017 academic year. Jade Martinez, student government’s director of health and wellness described Callisto Reporting Software, which allows students to report assailant information easily and confidentially.“Callisto sends these sexual assault reports directly to the Title IX coordinator for further investigation,” she said. “Names of assaulters can be matched using this software, offering the potential of a safer campus by prosecuting violators faster.”Martinez also stated that the committee is working to have this software installed by the fall, after solving its pricing ambiguity.Isabel Rooper, student government director of gender relations went on to promote aggregate data releases for Notre Dame’s sexual assault policy.“This push to release detailed information on sexual assaults would provide increased awareness and intervention in sexual assault occurrences on Notre Dame’s campus,” she said.The aggregate data released would include “the number of sexual violence reports filed, number of investigations opened, policy decisions, sanctions imposed and changes in these sanctions and length of each case,” Rooper said.This data would collect the information Notre Dame chooses to exclude in sexual assault surveys sent to students Rooper said.According to Rooper, currently, Notre Dame’s lack of standardization in data makes it difficult to compare our school to other universities around the nation.“Releasing aggregate data has the potential to make strides in sexual assault reporting, improving on current methods of both surveying and spreading awareness about the weight of Notre Dame’s, and every university’s, sexual assault problem,” she said.Presently, Rooper and Martinez were unsure if Holy Cross and St. Mary’s would join in Notre Dame’s movement to install Callisto reporting software and release aggregate data.Proceeding these presentations, there was no new business to attend. The senate agreed to adjourn the meeting with no obligations.Tags: aggregate data, Callisto, ND student senate

Share on: WhatsApp Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango of Uganda (C) tries to clear the ball during the Club World Cup football match between Kashima Antlers and Mamelodi Sundowns in Suita, Osaka . AFP PHOTOOsaka, Japan | AFP | Silvio Romero struck twice as Mexican side Club America beat Asian champions Jeonbuk Motors 2-1 on Sunday to set up a dream Club World Cup semi-final with Real Madrid.Local favourites Kashima Antlers salvaged some pride for Asia, however, when the Japanese title holders toppled South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns 2-0 in the day’s second quarter-final in Osaka.In the early kickoff, Kim Bo-kyung swept Korean powerhouse Jeonbuk in front after 23 minutes before Romero pounced twice to send the CONCACAF representatives through to the last four.“The players showed character, attitude and heart,” America coach Ricardo la Volpe told reporters.“We made some changes and tweaked the system a bit in the second half and got the goals.“We passed a test today and we will play Real Madrid with no fear,” he added. “We will have to work twice as hard but everyone expects us to lose so there will be no pressure on us.”Romero equalised with a clinical header just before the hour mark and the Argentine striker volleyed home the winner via a slight deflection off Jeonbuk forward Kim Shin-Wook after 74 minutes as the K-League side wilted under the mounting pressure.Club America, who also beat Jeonbuk in the quarter-finals of the FIFA tournament 10 years ago, will face European champions Real Madrid, led by talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, in Yokohama on Thursday.The hulking Kim Shin-Wook, instantly recognisable with his peppermint green mohican, was a constant menace but well shackled by markers in a tense finish as the Mexicans clung on for the win. Kashima, who came from behind to beat part-timers Auckland City 2-1 in the tournament’s curtain raiser on Thursday, were gifted their opening goal by Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango in the 63rd minute.Latching on to a knock-down from Shoma Doi, Yasushi Endo scuffed his left-foot shot which somehow squeezed under Onyango, bobbling out of his despairing grasp and over the line almost in slow motion.Substitute Mu Kanazaki killed the game off by smashing home from close range with two minutes left after more sloppy defending from the Africans.Kashima, fresh from clinching their eighth J-League crown last weekend, will face South American Libertadores Cup holders Atletico Nacional of Colombia in the competition’s first semi-final on Wednesday.“We struggled at the start to deal with their spirit,” said Kashima coach Masatada Ishii.“But we settled down in the second half, found a nice balance and scored two good goals. It was important to stay calm and we will have to be just as patient against Nacional.”Spanish giants Real are scheduled to arrive in Japan early Monday morning local time.
Sane threatened first with a pacey burst down the left and rising drive that Alisson Becker parried.But City recycled possession and Aguero beat Dejan Lovren to Bernardo Silva’s cross before firing into the roof of the net to score for the seventh time in seven home league games against Liverpool.Despite a combination of nerves and fatigue at the end of a gruelling festive period, the game truly came to life in a pulsating second-half.City had claims for a penalty waived away when Raheem Sterling tumbled under a challenge from Andy Robertson before the Scot was to play a vital part Liverpool’s equaliser.One Liverpool full-back picked out another as Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross was met perfectly by Robertson to square for Firmino to head into an empty net.Pep Guardiola had his head in his hands when a slack pass from Sane set Liverpool free on the counter-attack moments later, but within seconds the German showed what he is capable of as he latched on Sterling’s pass before firing in off the far post.Alisson demonstrated why Liverpool spent a then world record £67 million for a goalkeeper in July to bolster their title chances with a brilliant save from Aguero as the Argentine tried to round him at the end of a blistering City counter-attack.Seconds later it was the turn of his understudy in the Brazil side to make a huge save as Ederson denied Salah as tempers flared with Guardiola furious a free-kick wasn’t awarded City’s way before the Egyptian broke clear.Sterling then wasted a great chance to ensure City didn’t have to see out a tense five minutes of stoppage time, but the hosts held out to put the title back up for grabs.Share on: WhatsApp Manchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City inflicted Liverpool’s first Premier League defeat of the season to breathe new life into their title defence with a 2-1 victory at the Etihad on Thursday.City now trail Jurgen Klopp’s men by just four points thanks to Leroy Sane’s winner 18 minutes from time after Roberto Firmino had cancelled out Sergio Aguero’s first-half opener for the hosts.A run of nine straight league wins had given Liverpool a commanding lead at the top of the table as they edged towards a first top flight title since 1989/90, particularly after City suffered back-to-back shock defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester to begin the festive season.With no more league meetings between the sides to come, Liverpool’s destiny is still in their own hands, but they will now have the pressure of having a City side that romped to the title with a record 100 points last season on their tails.Jurgen Klopp had predicted a “thunderstorm” of a start from the champions to match the Champions League quarter-final second leg between the sides last season when City roared into an early lead before Liverpool fought back to win 2-1 on the night and 5-1 on aggregate.However, despite City’s dominance of possession, it was Liverpool who looked the more assured in the early stages.And only the finest of margins denied the visitors the lead on 19 minutes when Sadio Mane burst onto Mohamed Salah’s pass and saw his shot come back off the inside of the post.John Stones then smacked his panicked clearance into City goalkeeper Ederson but the England international redeemed himself by clearing just before all of the ball had crossed the line.City were also handed a reprieve by referee Anthony Taylor when captain Vincent Kompany only saw a yellow card for a wild two-footed lunge on Salah.At the other end Virgil van Dijk was again justifying his tag as the world’s most expensive defender to keep City’s array of attacking talent quiet with he Dutchman standing tall to block David Silva’s effort.However, a Liverpool defence that had not conceded twice in the same game all season in the league before kick-off was breached when City managed to free Aguero from Van Dijk’s shackles.
