The University of Arizona men’s club soccer team won the 2017 NIRSA National Tournament Open finishing 14-8-1 during its 2017 season. I sat down with head coach Erik Rhodes to discuss the season. Daily Wildcat: To start off, if you could describe your season in one word, what would that be? Coach Erik Rhodes: Uneven. I think it showed our guys that we had the ability to compete and win at the highest level. We beat really good teams that had good runs in the National Tournament in San Diego. And for a three or four game stretch, again in a couple of days, we just played solid soccer and won games flowing to another. Where we struggled over the rest of the season was we would have games like that on back to back weeks and not back to back days.

About 300 Louisiana inmates spending their lives in prison for murders committed as teens are turning to the courts after the Legislature failed to address their sentences, which were declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in January. A bill that would’ve given the inmates a shot at parole after serving at least 30 years died at the end of the regular Legislative session Monday amid eleventh-hour negotiations and an unrelated spat between the state House and Senate. Each of the inmates will now need to petition district judges for new sentences individually, prosecutors and defense attorneys say. If district attorneys again seek sentences of life without parole, each defendant is entitled to a full-blown sentencing hearing, including expert testimony and evidence about their home lives, schooling and mindset at the time of the crimes, many of them decades in the past. The court battles and hearings pose complex legal challenges that could drag on for years and cost … [Read more...] about Cases expected to clog Louisiana courts, and cost millions, after state fails to address unconstitutional life sentences
Cadarius Johnson, seen here at 16 years old when he was booked into Claiborne Parish Detention Center in July 2013. (Photo by Brett Duke, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune) Cadarius Johnson shuffled into a Shreveport hospital dressed in a prison uniform, his legs in shackles and wrists chained to his thin waist. Two armed guards escorted the 17-year-old with a developmental disability to see a psychologist, ready to intervene in another outburst. In childish, uneven handwriting, Cadarius wrote his name onto a legal form, releasing his right to medical privacy. Whatever unpredictable thing he might say next could be turned over to a judge. It had been three months since an early morning in July 2013 when Cadarius, then 16, was left alone at his mobile home despite a court order telling his mother to stay with him. For reasons that remain unclear, he called 911 and hung up four times before sunrise. Within the hour, Cadarius was in custody, and a sheriff’s deputy was accusing … [Read more...] about A Louisiana teen with disabilities needed help. Why was he accused of trying to kill a cop?
In each of the past seven years, major tech companies have released diversity reports, charting the number of women and people of color they employ. The numbers are reported to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, but companies have dedicated more and more resources to publicly displaying their commitments to diversity. The displays are impressive. The results are not. These companies spend millions on targeted outreach and strategic partnerships, but the results change little from year to year. Between 2014 and 2020, for example, the share of Black and Latinx tech workers at Facebook each increased by less than 2 percentage points. It seemed the same story year after year. Until 2020. The nationwide reckoning on race and racism last year exposed what many tasked with diversity work have privately discussed for years: that Silicon Valley’s own diversity and recruitment structures can hinder the work of opening doors to new people from different backgrounds with new … [Read more...] about Black Tech Employees Rebel Against ‘Diversity Theater’
