OSU lost, 1-0.Credit: Michele Theodore / Copy ChiefComing off a season-high six goals in a senior day victory against Northwestern, the Ohio State women’s soccer team heads back on the road for two Big Ten games this weekend. The Buckeyes are scheduled to play at No. 21 Nebraska Friday afternoon and Iowa Sunday.“(This) week’s games we just have to win,” freshman forward Nichelle Prince said. “We have to go in hard, we have to go in even harder than (last) week.”With just three games left in the regular season, OSU currently sits at 3-3-2 in Big Ten play, good for sixth best in the conference. The Buckeyes have scored 11 goals in their past three games, compared to just 18 goals in their first 13 games. Coach Lori Walker is hoping the offense continues its run but is also making sure the defense is getting attention, too.“Consistency is our challenge,” Walker said. “My hope is we didn’t expend all the goals left in the box (on Sunday). We’re going to continue to work on our defending and not giving away transition goals, kind of like we saw today.”Sitting atop the Big Ten standings is OSU’s Friday opponent, Nebraska, who is 7-1 in conference play. Two Nebraska forwards, senior Jordan Jackson and freshman Jaycie Johnson, each have seven goals on the year to lead the Huskers in scoring.“These are two tough games and two very important games,” Walker said. “Nebraska is playing extremely well, and it’s always hard to play Iowa at Iowa, so everyone counts.”Hawkeye sophomore goalkeeper Hannah Clark has shut out seven opponents, tied for the most in the Big Ten this season.OSU freshman midfielder Alexis Degler said for the Buckeyes to be successful, they need to keep their composure and concentrate on the task at hand.“We really need to keep our intensity level and just celebrate the game,” Degler said. “We just really need to bring that the rest of the time, and our soccer will come with it.”Friday’s match at Nebraska is scheduled to start at 4 p.m., and Sunday’s match at Iowa is set to kick off Sunday at 2 p.m.
CAIRO – The jailing of three activists has triggered fears in Egypt of a return to the police rule that blighted the Mubarak era, eroding gains made in the march towards democracy.On Sunday, a court jailed Ahmed Maher, Ahmed Douma and Mohamed Adel to three years for organising an unauthorised protest in a verdict seen as the military-installed government broadening the crackdown on dissent.It was the first such verdict against pro-democracy protesters since the July 3 overthrow of president Mohamed Morsi, whose Islamist supporters have borne the brunt of a deadly crackdown. The three and Alaa Abdel Fattah, a vocal critic of the police and the military detained on similar charges, were at the forefront of the movement that toppled long-time ruler Hosni Mubarak in 2011, beginning Egypt’s march towards democracy.But analysts say gains achieved since then are threatened by the targeting of such men and by other moves that could signal the return of a police state.Pursuing these activists “is a deliberate effort to target the voices who, since January 2011, have consistently demanded justice and security agency reform,” Human Rights Watch’s Sarah Leah Whitson said in a statement.“Almost three years after the nationwide protests that brought down Hosni Mubarak, security agencies feel more empowered than ever and are still intent on crushing the right of Egyptians to protest the actions of their government.”Activists have lashed out at the authorities for arming themselves with a new law banning all but police-sanctioned protests, calling it an attempt to stifle freedom of expression — a core value in the fight that toppled Mubarak.The interim authorities justified the overthrow of Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected president, as a response to massive protests against his turbulent year-long reign, which critics said was marked by power-grabs and economic mismanagement.More than 1,000 people have died in a crackdown on Morsi supporters and thousands have been arrested.The sentencing of Maher, Douma and Adel came days after Ahmed Shafiq, a premier under Mubarak, and the ousted strongman’s two sons were acquitted of corruption.That verdict underscores a sharp reversal of fortune not just for Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood movement, but for the pro-democracy movement itself.‘A significant step back’“These practices are far from the rule of law. In fact these practices are of a police state enforced more brutally than ever,” 14 Egyptian rights groups said in a joint statement.James Dorsey, Middle East expert and senior fellow at the Singapore-based S Rajaratnam School of International Studies, said: “The jailing of activists is a significant step back in what Egypt has achieved since the toppling of Mubarak.“Yesterday’s (Sunday’s) verdict strengthens an atmosphere of caution, if not intimidation.”Dorsey said the regime is expanding the circle of people it is targeting beyond the Brotherhood.“It is signalling that it is not looking at broadening the rights and freedoms of the people,” he told AFP.Activists say the way the four were arrested, why they were detained, the acquittal of Shafiq and Mubarak’s sons and the midnight raid on an NGO last week to arrest Adel were all reminders of the Mubarak era.“In principle (the regime) is retaining an autocratic rule. This coupled with the protest law essentially means there is very little public space to express dissent,” Dorsey said.Experts now question the government’s intentions on the road map it announced to usher a democratic transition, the first step being the January 14 and 15 referendum on a new constitution, followed by parliamentary and presidential elections.Sunday’s verdict “is sabotage against the front that supports the road map,” said Hassan Nafea, professor of political science at Cairo University.He was referring to Maher’s April 6 youth movement which initially backed the road map after Morsi’s overthrow but on Sunday said it was withdrawing its support from the plan.“Now many questions are raised. Will the elections be free and democratic? Is Egypt heading towards a democracy?” asked Nafea.“The first test on the ground will be the referendum.”Dorsey remains hopeful, however.“The military… does not understand that in Egypt…there has been a fundamental shift. No matter what happens, people are willing to question. The regime can’t legislate away this fundamental shift,” he said.

The journey of tastes is equal to the greatest pleasures that make our wishes come true, it awakens our senses and provides an unforgettable feeling, and it is through this hypothesis that a new gastronomic fairy tale was created – Ethno Park Zagreb.The ethno park represents a journey through Turopolje through a unique story, and the current cultural offer of this interesting picnic area is richer for a new chapter that permeates from historical influences to the present day. The traditional cuisine of continental Croatia, including Turopolje, was under various influences, from Hungarian and Central European, all the way to Turkish and Arabic cuisine from the east. Ethno Park Zagreb with its rich historical collection provides an insight into a large part of these historical events. ” Within the Ethno Park Zagreb, there is a smaller wooden house, but nothing more modestly decorated. Then the summer house, where you will find refreshment during the hot summer days, and on slightly colder days, the same place will turn into a magical winter garden, where you will be warmed by a cup of tea or mulled wine. Right next to the summer house there is a charming children’s playground where games, laughter and new friendships are not lacking. Then we come to an elegant hall that is intended for celebrations and gatherings, and is arranged and adjusted according to your wishes depending on the type of occasion. ” stand out from the Ethno Park Zagreb.Special attention is paid to the preparation of meals, so that the ingredients of local farms prevail, and the delicacies are unique in the way the Ethno Park is prepared, which includes the recipes of our grandmothers. A special focus is on authentic dishes such as cooked štruklji in Turopolje, baked homemade fuži with fresh cheese as well as old Turopolje soups. In addition to those historical recipes, Erno Park pays attention to new combinations of dishes such as veal medallions in apple and honey sauce, but also old desserts such as grandma’s pancakes with grated apples and caramel topping. ”At the very end, although at first it seems as if there is no end, because we are located on an area of 40 000m2, a special place is occupied by an orchard, which is adorned with about 800 trees of various fruits. What will especially impress you during a walk through the orchard, especially in the evening, is the view that reaches straight to Sljeme, the highest peak of our Zagrebačka gora Medvednica.”The magical Ethno Park is located just a few kilometers from the center of Zagreb in Mala Mlaka and an irresistible, magical and peaceful place is an escape into some past times, a visit to the rich history of Croatian regions, and most importantly tells our authentic story.
