Commercial portrays ‘Fighting Irish’ on NBC

first_img Woodward said Chang’s story is only one of many interesting stories happening on campus.  Last week’s commercial featured the work Notre Dame has done in Haiti in the aftermath of the earthquake.  The commercial shows the devastation in Haiti, and then responds to the presentation of this problem by offering a solution. “Three years ago we came up with a concept — ‘what would we fight for?’” Todd Woodward, associate vice president for Marketing Communications, said. “The concept is built up around us being the ‘Fighting Irish,’ which is based on football.  A new two-minute commercial now airs on NBC during every home game, asking viewers “What would you fight for?” Researchers at Notre Dame have created new technology to aid field medical workers with diagnoses. The commercial features the research being done at Notre Dame and the faculty who are spearheading the research campaign, including Dr. Chia Chang of the College of Engineering.   “Notre Dame is full of amazing stories — incredible things our faculty and students are doing,” Woodward said. “To me it’s about why they are doing it … We want them to say this seems exactly what Notre Dame ought to be doing. It is so important that Notre Dame does this kind of work and it seems in line with their character.’” The commercial ends with Chang saying: “Fighting for innovative health care, we are the Fighting Irish.” The ad focuses on the academic work that is done at Notre Dame.  The commercial also attempts to convey why the work is being done and why such work is important to a student or faculty member doing research at Notre Dame, Woodward said. “First rate medical care is a fundamental right for every person.  Our hope is that our technology can make this a reality for everyone,” Chang said. “In the ads, we focus on what people don’t know about us,” Woodward said. “We want to bring awareness to the academic work that our students and faculty are engaged in, but look at it through a Notre Dame lens since we believe we are not like any other school, and our approach here is different.” “Football is critical to us, as is our Catholic identity, in communicating what makes Notre Dame unique.”  Woodward said University President Fr. John Jenkins’ campaign to boost Notre Dame’s reputation as a prominent research university is showcased in the advertisement.last_img read more

Nightclubs torn between income and public health

first_imgThree months ago, professional DJ Ganarjito Abirowo was still performing at multiple nightclubs in Jakarta. Under the stage name of Jidho, he used to perform five nights a week, making a name for himself as a sought-after DJ in the capital.However, the coronavirus pandemic has turned his life upside down.As nightclubs went into a temporary shutdown after Jakarta imposed the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) in April, Jidho has not only been unable to channel his passion for music, but he also experienced a financial downturn. “Still, we need certainty from the Jakarta administration on when nightclubs can operate again. I am more concerned about those who rely on the nightlife sector to make ends meet, such as bartenders and waiters,” Jidho told The Jakarta Post on Thursday.“I hope nightclubs can reopen again next month [July], as I heard that many [patients] have recovered from the disease.”Bergas Kampana Haryadita, a DJ who goes by the name Bergas, said his revenue had fallen ever since the PSBB was in place. He urged the city administration to set a specific time for nightclubs to resume operation and detailed health protocols for nightclub visitors and workers to protect them.Claiming to have lowered coronavirus transmission rates, Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has allowed offices, shops, restaurants, factories and other public places to gradually resume activities starting this month, but only at half capacity. It remains unclear when nightlife establishments like nightclubs, bars and massage parlors will reopen and under what restrictions.Read also: ‘Transitional PSBB’: A deciding chapter for Jakarta’s new normalJakarta Association of Entertainment Entrepreneurs (Asphija) chief Hana Suryani said such certainty was needed so that entertainment businesses could prepare scenarios to cushion the COVID-19 impact on their finances and prepare their future operation, like the recruitment of new employees. It would also give them more time for furloughed workers, especially those living outside of the capital, to go back to Jakarta, she said.“We need to save our businesses from enduring greater losses due to the epidemic. Do not get me wrong. We do not urge the administration to allow us to reopen our business as quickly as possible; all we need is certainty,” she said.She estimated trillions of rupiah in losses in the last three months.The association is now in cooperation with the Jakarta Tourism Agency to set a list of health protocols that would be mandatory for every leisure establishment.The association had suggested that the city administration include physical distancing among customers and body temperature checks in the protocols, but Hana asked the administration not to limit operational hours of the entertainment places in order for businesses to offset losses sustained during the last three months.“According to my experience, customers always come after 9 p.m. So if the administration asks us to close our businesses at 10 p.m., for example, we won’t be able to receive a healthy amount of profit,” Hana said.Read also: Jakarta discusses ‘new normal’ possibilities for nightclubs, massage parlorsJakarta Tourism Agency head Cucu Ahmad Kurnia had no definite answer as to when entertainment places may resume operations, saying only that he had scheduled a meeting with representatives of the leisure industry for Friday to discuss the eventual implementation of a new normal paradigm in the industry.Griffith University’s epidemiologist Dicky Budiman said reopening nightclubs and other nightlife entertainment establishments early would be a risky, unnecessary move, considering that any virus would easily spread indoors and that the nightlife entertainment was categorized as nonessential business in the city during the pandemic.Nightclub visitors would also be at risk of neglecting health protocol due to alcohol intoxication if they consumed alcoholic beverages, he said.He cited a recent incident in South Korea, which had COVID-19 cases bounced back in mid-May with a fresh infection cluster in Itaewon, a popular nightlife district in Seoul.“If the Jakarta administration insists on reopening nightclubs, they should at least not allow those located in COVID-19 red zones to resume operation. The administration should also actively trace the visitors,” Dicky said.Frequent clubgoer Cintya Agita said she would not immediately head to nightclubs once the administration allows them to reopen. “Probably I will wait for the ‘success story’ of the protocols. If there are no cases linked to nightclubs, I might consider visiting them only once a month.”Topics : His monthly revenue had plunged by roughly Rp 50 million (US$3,571) in the last two months, he said, without revealing his earnings now. The situation has forced him to start a culinary business offering home delivery to stay afloat.But Jidho was well aware that putting nightclubs on a temporary hiatus was important to help reduce the COVID-19 spread in the capital.The nightlife industry is caught between a rock and a hard place. They are aware that reopening entertainment places during the ongoing epidemic would increase the risk of new infections in the city, the epicenter of the outbreak in Indonesia, but many working in the industry are losing income.They now urged the Jakarta administration to provide certainty on whether they can resume business to offset their losses after around two months of PSBB, especially since the city has decided to ease restrictions starting on June 5.last_img read more

Chelsea remain top of the table

first_imgSouthampton were 3-1 winners at Bournemouth in the other game. While Liverpool have the chance to climb into second place in the Premier League later, it’s Chelsea who continue out in front by 7pts following the weekend’s action. Man City needed to come from one-down at home to Arsenal yesterday to stay within reach – Sané and Sterling with the goals in the second half. Spurs were also one-down but they too have kept track on the European positions thanks to goals from Dele Alli and Danny Rose – beating Burnley 2-1. last_img read more
