Defeated Wimbledon semi-finalist Sam Querrey said his tournament run had convinced him he could beat the world’s best players, and next year he planned to go one better and make the final.Querrey was beaten by Croatian Marin Cilic on Friday after a Wimbledon adventure that has seen him play a string of five-set matches, vanquish world number one Andy Murray and become the first American man to reach a grand slam singles semi-final since 2009.”It’s been a fun run,” the 29-year-old who hails from California said in typically understated fashion.”It’s given me some confidence … I feel like I’ve really had some ups over the last year, and hopefully there are more of those to come,” he added. “I feel if I play well, my level is at a high enough point where I can beat those top guys.”Asked how he might fare at Wimbledon next year, he said: “Pencil me in for a final, and hopefully that will happen.”Cilic had beaten Querrey in their previous four matches, but the American said his opponent had played better than ever before in the semi-final.”I kind of felt like he pushed me around a little bit today,” he said. “He just does everything really well, he did seem to play at a really high level.”Cilic will face the winner of the match between seven-times champion Roger Federer and Czech Tomas Berdych in Sunday’s final, and Querrey said the Croat would a handful for anyone.”If he plays well and plays big, he can give anyone trouble. If he plays Roger, Roger’s the favourite in that one obviously. But Marin can give him some trouble.”advertisement
As Ben Phillips, co-founder of the Fight Inequality Alliance and a Hewlett Fellow of Public Policy at the Kellogg Institute, listened to Nelson Mandela speak at a rally in South Africa just four years after apartheid ended, Phillips said he realized two things. “The first was that I was in the presence of a hero, but the more important thing is that I realized I was in the presence of thousands of heroes,” he said. “History had not been made by one man. History had been made when so many people organized together.”Phillips brought his passion against global inequality to a lecture in the Hesburgh Center on Wednesday evening titled, “Winning the Fight Against Inequality (And Why It Needs You).” After high school, Phillips moved to South Africa to work as a teacher in a black township. It was there where he first became involved in social activism.“After that year in South Africa, I felt like it physically rewired me, and I therefore couldn’t do anything else other than work in social justice,” Phillips said.Over the course of his life working across the globe in campaign teams and social movements, Phillips said he learned the most important change is never done by professionals. “The key step for achieving change that makes society more equal is for ordinary people to regain their voice, regain their power … they do that by forming groups,” he said.Phillips covered a number of damaging effects inequality causes. In addition to hurting the most vulnerable members of society, Phillips said inequality also causes people who are well off to suffer.“Unequal societies are more violent, less trusting, have less economic growth and potential, harm the environment more, respect human rights less, generate more anger and intolerance and start to fragment and start to not operate as a democracy,” Phillips said.Phillips said cities all over the world live with a stark divide between the rich and the poor, and in many of these cities, the divide is growing.“Seven out of 10 people live in countries where the gap between the rich and poor is worse than it was 30 years ago. One percent of Indians own 50 percent of India,” he said. “In the U.S., the richest 10 percent of the population captured more than all the gains made since the recession. The other 90 percent went backwards.”Phillips said the rich not only hold the majority of the nation’s wealth, but they have power in multiple facets of society.“The problem we face is the problem of political capture,” he said. “Political capture means some people have so much money, they don’t just buy boats, they buy elections. The new golden rule is that the people with the gold make the rules.”In order to combat inequality, Phillips said change will require groups of ordinary, yet diverse people.“A successful movement that establishes a decent, equal society needs doctors and people struggling for peace work in order to take on the 0.1 percent, so I think an inclusive movement is key,” he said.While people may think social movements today are too divisive, Phillips said pushing against authority is essential in creating change.“In the 1960s, if you look at Gallup polls, most whites thought that Dr. King was divisive. There were newspaper articles about how the March on Washington was reckless, and people ask about Black Lives Matter, why can’t they be like Dr. King? They’re exactly like Dr. King,” Phillips said. “They are highlighting a new issue, and people need to hear it.“Phillips said the battle to create a lasting revolution requires a significant amount of time and dedication because combating inequality requires several fights to be won.“When you look at these groups that are making a difference, you see them on the news when they’re out on the streets with placards, but that’s about one percent of what they do,“ he said. “The key word is a series of planning, of building trust, of working with with communities. It’s many, many days of meetings in drafty church basements. It’s endless, and it’s that that brings real change.”Urging students to join the fight against inequality, Phillips said Notre Dame students can benefit from three lessons.“Today when we demolish deference, when we build collective power, when we build a new story, we can be in influence,” Phillips said. “It is not inevitable anywhere, but it is not impossible anywhere.”Tags: inequality, racial justice, social activism, wealthy inequality

Letterkenny Rotary Club has launched their Bikes 4 Africa campaign where members of the public are being asked to donate their old bikes by leaving them at any of the six Bryson Recycling Centres from Saturday 8th to 22nd October. These bikes will be repaired and refurbished and sent to Africa where they will be allocated to secondary school children to help them get to school each day.This initiative is being supported by Donegal County Council and is part of National Reuse month campaign which is about encouraging people to rethink what we do with our waste and to pass it on, repair it or refurbish it into something new. Suzanne Bogan, Waste Awareness Officer with the Council believes that “this is a great initiative and one that clearly demonstrates what we are trying to achieve during national reuse month. Donating, refurbishing and repairing items are all forms of reuse and offer people a chance to save or make money, get creative, learn a new skill and be environmentally conscious”.Bikes can be left at any of the six Bryson Recycling Centres in Letterkenny, Dungloe, Milford, Carndonagh, Stranorlar, Laghey during opening hours from Saturday 8th to 22nd October.Once the bikes are collected, they are sent to Loughlan House, the correctional facility in Co. Cavan where the Irish Prison Service has arranged for the inmates refurbish the bicycles as part of their rehabilitation and training programme.The latest shipment in May of this year brought the number of refurbished bicycles to 1,000, all of which will eventually be transported to The Gambia, where Rotary’s partner organisation “Jole Rider Gambia” pre-selects the schools, and then oversees the distribution of the bikes, with the assistance of the Gambian Education Ministry. Bikes remain the property of the school, with teachers allocating them to the children according to set criteria. When a child graduates from school, their bike is then reallocated to another child. This means that each bike impacts positively on as many as 10 students. Letterkenny Rotary Club was successful in sending 50 + bicycles last year, and want to do the same or even more this year. It costs €10 per bike to have them transported.Shane Clerkin, Manager with Bryson Recycling said they were “delighted to support the Rotary Club’s “Bikes for Africa” campaign by providing collection points at the six Recycling Centres in Co Donegal. At Bryson we are committed to “building better futures” and where better to achieve this than gathering bicycles for school children in Africa.”For Recycling Centre opening times and more on Reuse month visit www.donegalcoco.ieDonations of old bikes to the Bike 4 Africa campaign can be left at any of the six Bryson Recycling Centres in Letterkenny, Dungloe, Milford, Carndonagh, Stranorlar, Laghey during opening hours from Saturday 8th – 22nd October.Donegal public asked to donate to Bikes 4 Africa was last modified: October 10th, 2016 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:Bikes 4 Africadonegal
