Estudante angolana da Unilab/BA é selecionada no Mestrado em Estudos Étnicos e Africanos da Universidade Federal da Bahia

Margarida Duete Lourenço Bendo , estudante angolana da Unilab, Campus dos Malês/BA

O Campus dos Malês, em São Francisco do Conde/BA, teve a primeira aprovação de uma estudante do continente africano no Programa Multidisciplinar de Pós-Graduação em Estudos Étnicos e Africanos (Pós-Afro/CEAO), da Faculdade de Filosofia e Ciências Humanas, na Universidade Federal da Bahia (UFBA), seleção de mestrado 2018-2019.
A estudante angolana do sétimo semestre, do curso de Licenciatura em Ciências Sociais, vinculado ao Instituto de Humanidades e Letras (IHL), do Campus dos Malês/BA, Margarida Duete Lourenço Bendo, foi aprovada com uma vaga de mestrado sob a linha de pesquisa Estudos Africanos enfoca a África, com ênfase nas formulações sobre etnicidade, identidade, gênero e raça, a partir do estudo da história e cultura do continente, da UFBA.
Sua pesquisa teve a temática: “Tchikumbi: Ritual de iniciação feminina como forma de construção dos papeis de gênero em Cabinda, Angola”, sob a orientação da professora Dra em Antropologia Social do IHL/BA, Maria Andrea dos Santos Soares.
 
A pesquisa etnográfica busca pensar e analisar o ritual de iniciação feminina, Tchikumbi. Saber até que ponto é legitima as delimitações dos papéis de gênero dentro da sociedade dos Cabindas e se há conflito entre essa delimitação e os anseios das novas gerações. O ritual enquadra-se numa das fases de iniciação da mulher para a fase adulta, ou seja, apresentá-la à sociedade, como estando pronta para a vida jovem/adulta. 

 

“Essa conquista, muito importante para mim e para minha família, terei a oportunidade de problematizar a questão do conceito de gênero, sua aplicabilidade em contextos africanos e a condição feminina no contexto contemporâneo de Cabinda, tudo isso dentro de um programa que pesquisa e valoriza os estudos africanos como uma fonte de produção de conhecimento”, declarou Margarida Bendo.

Former NFL QBs find second careers as Nashville area high school coaches

Davidson Academy coach Jonathan Quinn was forced to make a big adjustment when his NFL quarterback playing days ended and his coaching career began.
It certainly wasn’t a simple transition.
“The biggest adjustment from player to coach for me was how slow the game was (at the high school level),” said Quinn, who won his first high school football state championship as a head coach in December. “When you are dealing with playing at such a high level for such a long time, and then you go here.
“The game is so much slower. And the time that you have to teach the game is a lot less. At the professional level, that’s all you do all day.”

Former NFL quarterback and ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer, who won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens, made national headlines earlier this month when he was named Lipscomb Academy’s next head coach.
But Dilfer will be just the latest former NFL quarterback serving as a high school football head coach in the Nashville area. Last season there were three in Quinn, Rusty Smith at Grace Christian and Ingle Martin at CPA.
Quinn was picked in the third round of the 1998 NFL draft by Jacksonville. Martin was picked in the fifth round by the Packers in the 2006 draft. Smith was picked in the sixth round by the Titans in the 2010 draft.
A fourth former NFL player, Justin Geisinger, is the head coach at Pope John Paul II. Geisinger, who was a standout at Vanderbilt, was an offensive lineman in the NFL. He was picked in the sixth round by Buffalo in the 2005 draft.
Transition from NFL to high school
Martin was 28 when he became the head coach at CPA. He recognized early that he didn’t know it all in regards to coaching football or the sport.
“I needed a couple guys with gray hair to talk to,” said Martin, now 36. “The biggest thing is I didn’t know it all. I still don’t know it all.
“Good leaders will surround yourself with people that are smarter than you are. I have an unbelievable staff that is smarter than me.”
Smith first came to Grace Christian as an offensive coordinator when the Lions were playing eight-man football. The program transitioned to 11-man football when Smith took over as head coach.
Smith said the hardest part of his transition from professional athlete to high school coach was realizing that he was no longer dealing with professional athletes.
“We tried to implement some of the things I was doing, and we quickly said, ‘Wait, we have to pump the brakes on this,’” Smith said.
The concepts were too complex for high school kids.
“We don’t have near the meeting time. They are 14 through 17, and I was from the pro ranks,” Smith said. “That was probably the biggest and hardest part of the transition.”

Former pros bolster staffs
At least 15 former NFL players or assistants are on Nashville area staffs.
Brentwood Academy and Ravenwood have the most with three each.
Former Titans Rocky Calmus and Jason Mathews along with former Packers/Rams lineman Scott Wells are on Brentwood Academy’s staff.
Former Titans linebacker Ryan Fowler, retired longtime kicker David Akers and former Titans assistant Alan Lowry all have joined Ravenwood’s staff in recent years.
Fowler is the Raptors’ associate head coach and defensive coordinator.
“He’s pretty darn unique,” Ravenwood coach Matt Daniels said of Fowler. “He’s built relationships with the kids and they trust him. They don’t think about his NFL experience.”

Two parents arrested for brawl after fourth-grade basketball game

Two parents of players on fourth-grade basketball teams were arrested for fighting after a basketball game on Jan. 19, according to WLWT.
Video shows a small group of parents inside the doorway after the game between two undefeated fourth-grade teams in the Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball League, Mariemont and West Clermont.

It appears two parents began pushing at each other and others began to intervene.
A kid who had been watching nearby jumped at one parent after she apparently threw something at a parent inside the tussle. The kid fell and, as he tried to get back into the group, was pushed to the outside by a group of other parents who appeared to be coming in to break up the fight.

The Fairfax Police Department told WLWT two parents, Aishia Peoples and Tasha Roland, were charged with disorderly conduct.
Peoples told WLWT that a West Clermont parent was being intimidating during the game.
The parents and athletes have been expelled from the league for the rest of the season, WLWT reported.

Super Bowl LIII: Patriots DB Obi Melifonwu has backing of coaches as he lives out dream with hometown team

Obi Melifonwu has had a rollercoaster start to his NFL career.
A second round pick in 2017 by the Raiders, Melifonwu was released in his second season. He latched on with the Patriots, the team he cheered on as a child growing up in Grafton, Mass., first with a practice squad deal.
Now he’s preparing to play in the Super Bowl for his hometown team.
For Melifonwu, it’s a valuable point on a journey that he hopes won’t end anytime soon.
“I’m a strong believer in if you’re not getting better at something, you’re getting worse, so to be in this position and to come this far, you definitely have to have something that’s deep inside that nobody can really push you to be great or do things to the best of your ability,” Melifonwu told NESN.com. “That’s something that you have to push yourself. What motivates me and gives me a chip on my shoulder is I wasn’t highly recruited out of high school. I had one offer to UConn. So, that’s definitely something that’s given me a chip on my shoulder.”
Melifonwu’s former coach and principal at Grafton (Mass.) High School are both excited about the Patriots playing in the game … and seeing their former charge excel on the stage he has. And they’re confident that Melifonwu landing with the Patriots was meant to be.

I grew up a Pats fan, and as a little kid I would pray that one day I would be a part of this team and end up going to the Super Bowl. All I can say is thank you God. If you knew what I’ve been through you would understand why I am so grateful, I am truly blessed beyond belief. pic.twitter.com/vuxDD1eK3k
— Obi Melifonwu (@Obi_1nOnly) January 21, 2019

“What he’s gone through – being drafted and then being released and then picked up by the Patriots – he’s worked hard, it’s well-deserved,” Grafton High School Principal James Pignataro told MassLive. “Beyond that, he’s just a tremendous person.”
Added Grafton football coach Chris McMahon: “I think he always knew that he had the ability to maybe do something special. When he came here from the Raiders, I think we all felt this was the best possible situation for him – to be in a place where there’s tremendous stability, where there’s veteran presence in the locker room to guide him. I think him being in the Patriots organization himself was probably the best thing that could’ve happened to him.
“The biggest thing to me with Obi is just the type of person he is, he’s genuine, honest, hardworking, he’s the kind of guy you want on your team. He’s the kind of guy you want to root for, as well. Sometimes we lose track of what makes these guys successful, and I think Obi’s success lies in his personality.”
With one more win on Sunday, Melifonwu would get to flash that personality alongside the Lombardi Trophy, and bring a little bit of Grafton, Mass. to the brightest lights and stage. He dreamed of doing precisely that with precisely this team when he was in high school, and now he’s almost there.

More than a dozen spectators fight after New York HS basketball game

Chairs were thrown and a 14-year-old got hurt falling through bleachers as a 15- to 20-person brawl broke out following a New York high school varsity basketball game.
Video from ABC7NY and NBC4NY shows spectators at a Wyandanch High School (N.Y.) basketball game fighting on the court after a game against Mount Sinai (N.Y.) High School.
It’s unclear why the brawl started, but Wyandanch School District Superintendent Dr. Mary Jones told ABC7NY the fight “began with young men from the community who were not on the team, nor were they students” in the district.”
Similarly, Mount Sinai director of athletics Scott Reh told Newsday the fight did not involve his players or fans.

Police cited the 15-20 participant number, though Newsday noted about 40 people were on the court around the fighters.
It lasted for 30 to 40 minutes before police arrived, a parent told NBC4NY.
A 14-year-old boy was arrested for allegedly striking one of the officers and refusing to leave, according to Newsday.
A girl, 14, was taken to the hospital after she hurt her knee falling through the bleachers, according to ABC7NY. She was not involved in the fight.
Her injury was minor, NBC4NY reported.

It had been an “intense” game, a parent told NBC4NY, and the junior varsity players were warming up when the fight started.
Jones said the brawl escalated quickly.
“After numerous 911 calls, the Suffolk County Police arrived and quashed a situation that could have been much worse. The district is investigating the incident and will make recommendations regarding any students who may have been involved and review whether our security plan is sufficient,” she said in a statement to ABC7NY.
NBC4NY reported that only students with IDs and the family members of athletes will be allowed at home games in the future.
The team was also asked to provide extra security for its next game, an away game at Amityville (N.Y), according to ABC7NY.

Tom Brady's dad shares funny stories of a younger Tom Brady throwing objects

Tom Brady is 41 years old and continues to throw footballs at a high level.
According to his dad, Tom Brady also enjoyed throwing something else when he was younger: golf clubs.
The father, Tom Brady Sr., and son oftentimes made bets on the golf games they played, per Boston.com.
“I remember one particular day we were on our way to Candlestick Park to see the Giants, but we stopped at the golf course to play nine holes,” Brady Sr. told ESPN’s Get Up.
“Of course, we would always [do] double or nothing. By the time we got to the seventh hole, he owed me about 40 car washes, and he ended up throwing the club into the tree.”

RelatedRams star Todd Gurley had a big-time college doubt him in HSSuper Bowl LIII: Patriots RB James White's nickname comes from HS writing teacher, not his footwork
Brady Sr. said, that after Brady threw the club, the father sent his son to the car and told him he would not play golf with him anymore.
“He begged me he’d never do it again,” Brady Sr. told Get Up. “And we drove home [after going to the Giants game] and stopped at the golf course and played another nine holes of golf, but that didn’t stop him from throwing golf clubs.”
That wasn’t the only time Brady threw something out of anger.
When his son went off to college, Brady Sr. saw a hole in his wall, left by a television remote that the younger Brady had thrown about three years earlier when he was in high school. Brady Sr.’s wife, Galynn Brady, hid the hole from her husband by putting a picture over it.
“Then she moved the picture, and I discovered the hole in the wall,” Brady Sr. said. “It was one of those things where he couldn’t believe that something had occurred, and put the T.V. remote through the wall.”
Barring an injury, Brady will be throwing in Super Bowl LIII when his New England Patriots take on the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams are quarterbacked by Jared Goff, who, like Brady, grew up in the Bay Area playing football, basketball and baseball. The game is on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Former New York HS football coach, special ed teacher charged with rape

WEBSTER, N.Y. — A former coach and special education teacher in the Webster Central School District in New York is facing rape charges.
The charges against Kali Watkins, 42, were announced Wednesday morning in a joint news conference with the Webster Police Department and Webster Central School District. Watkins is a former special education teacher and varsity football coach at Webster Schroeder High School (N.Y.).

Watkins was indicted by a Monroe County grand jury on one count of first-degree rape and one count of second-degree rape, said Monroe County assistant district attorney Meredith Vacca.
Vacca said the first-degree charge relates to having engaged in sex by forcible compulsion, and the second-degree charge relates to engaging in sex with a female child less than 15 years old. The incidents are alleged to have occurred in 2016 and 2017, she said.
Officials would not say if the victim was a Webster student.
At the news conference Wednesday, Webster schools superintendent Carmen Gumina said internal concerns about Watkins’ conduct at Webster Schroeder were raised in November 2017, leading to a district investigation and Watkins being placed on  administrative leave. During that probe, Gumina said, “the district was informed of an unrelated criminal allegation,” which officials referred to the Webster Police Department. Watkins was fired by the district on Dec. 22, 2017.
Webster Police Chief Joseph Rieger said his agency’s investigation began immediately then and has been “ongoing ever since.”

Watkins, who had been the Schroeder football coach for the previous eight seasons, started the 2017 season as coach of the Webster Schroeder girls varsity basketball team but was quickly replaced by veteran softball coach Meaghan Keil.
The Democrat and Chronicle reported in December 2017 that parents of girls basketball players were told in mid-November 2017 that Watkins was taking a leave of absence.
Watkins was named Monroe County Division I football Coach of the Year in 2017 but did not attend the banquet to receive his award. He is a former receiver and safety at the University of Buffalo and was a two-year captain for the Bulls and a 2014 inductee into the Section V Hall of Fame.
According to Monroe County Jail records, Watkins was being held without bail on a sealed indictment as of Wednesday morning.
