ND recognizes eating disorders

first_imgIn observance of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, the University Counseling Center is promoting awareness of the dangerous effects of the pressure to look perfect. “Students can feel like a lot of aspects of their life are out of control, and food is one aspect that they can control,” Maureen Lafferty, assistant director of the University Counseling Center, said. “An eating disorder can develop from this mentality.” The theme of this year’s national campaign to promote awareness of eating disorders is “Everybody Knows Somebody,” which reflects that the number of eating disorders in the United States is on the rise. The campaign also focuses on how to reach out to people with these disorders. Lafferty said although people commonly associate eating disorders with women, men can also suffer from them. “Women are certainly affected more, but eating disorders are not limited exclusively to women,” she said. Signs of an eating disorder include a restricted diet, mood swings, compulsive and obsessive exercise and low self-esteem. However, Lafferty said any radical change in behavior is a cause for concern. “If you notice a significant drop in weight or a change in eating behavior, it may indicate an eating disorder,” she said. “If you have a concern, it should be expressed in the spirit of care and compassion. “It is a sensitive subject, so express your concern in a caring way rather than being accusatory” Lafferty also said turning to professionals can be a smart way to address concerns. They can provide additional information and help develop a plan for whether and how to approach the person. “Eating disorders are way more complex than we think and in some cases we need professional input to figure out the best way to approach the situation,” Lafferty said. If a student notices a friend engaging in harmful behavior, he or she should turn to a rector or a member of the University Counseling Center, Lafferty said. “Do not feel like you alone need to be responsible in the situation,” she said. “If you notice a change in a person’s behavior, do not act like a detective. Approach them with an attitude of compassion rather than anything accusatory.”last_img read more

Trio set for Pre-Season Camp at Madureira Esporte Clube in Brazil

first_imgON the heels of a historic visit to Brazil last week where Guyana Football Federation (GFF) president Wayne Forde met with Brazilian Football Federation (Confederação Brasileira de Futebol – CBF) president Rogerio Caboclo, the partnership has already bearing fruits.The GFF, in a release, revealed that Ryan Hackett of Fruta Conquerors, Kelsey Benjamin (Georgetown Football Club) and Sese Norville of Milerock FC will spend one month at Brazilian second-division side, Madureira Esporte Clube where they will undergo pre-season training.The trio who have been part of the senior national Golden Jaguars set-up in recent times will be exposed to another level of training over a four-week period with the possibility of landing a Pro-Contract, based on their performances during that period.The young footballers were part of the historic Brazil Train and Play Camp last August when the senior national team spent two weeks there and played against the said club in a practice match.Speaking about the venture, president Forde said that this is the first of many initiatives and the goal of the GFF, (which has also presented an MoU to CBF president Rogerio Caboclo) is aimed at holistic development of the sport on and off the field of play, along with ensuring that as many as 40 players between the ages of 18 and 22 years gain exposure in Brazil over the coming months and years.“Ideally, we would prefer to have the players enter into the Brazilian Football system much younger, but unfortunately, language challenges, immigration laws and parental consideration are yet to be fully explored.”Forde maintained; “The GFF is very pleased that our work to develop a partnership with our Brazilian neighbours has started to bear fruit. This is a wonderful opportunity for the players ahead of our preparations for the Olympic Under-23 Qualifying competition in July. I would like to join the rest of Guyana in congratulating these players and wishing them every success whilst in Brazil.”President Forde also offered congratulations to the management of the respective clubs, Milerock FC, Georgetown Football Club and Fruta Conquerors, thanking them for the work they have put into moulding these players.He also indicated that the young Guyanese will likely feature in a friendly match in which Madureira Esporte Clube would play against the Qatar national team on June 9.Qatar and Japan were invited to play in the world’s oldest continental tournament – Copa America, the 46th edition of the event, which will be played in six stadiums across five cities in Brazil.The stadiums are Belo Horizonte, Porto Alegre, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and Sao Paulo.The opening is set for the Morumbi Stadium (Sao Paulo) while the final will be held at the Maracaná Stadium (Rio de Janeiro).last_img read more

TWIN TOWNS BOXER GETS STAMP OF APPROVAL

first_imgIt was a proud day for the O’Reilly family, the Twin Towns Boxing Club and Donegal when boxer Stephen O’Reilly collected the first 55c stamp in his honour this week.Ballybofey man Stephen, tipped as a future Olympic contender, features on the stamp to commemorate the Centenary of the Irish Amateur Boxing Association.Stephen travelled with his family and friends along with loyal members of the Twin Towns ABC. Well-known coach Brian Anderson, who has worked with Stephen since he was a youngster, said the day was a very proud one for all involved.The stamp features Stephen (wearing red) in action against his long-time rival David Joyce of St.Michael’s ABC in Athy.The Donegal sportsman has won nine national titles since taking up the sport when he wandered into the Finn Valley Centre aged just eight and began sparring for fun.The new stamp can be purchased, together with a special edition First Day Cover envelope at www.irishstamps.ie or at the GPO in Dublin. All Stephen needs now is to keep his fingers crossed about a possible chance at the Olympic team where he can prove once and for all he will take some licking after putting his stamp on the sport.The offer of a place on the Olympic Team is probably already in the post!EndsTWIN TOWNS BOXER GETS STAMP OF APPROVAL was last modified: April 14th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:stampStephen O’ReillyTwin Towns ABClast_img read more
