(Confused) Feminist blogger lays into Family First over call for Zoo mag ban

first_imgOneNewsNow 16 September 2015A prominent feminist blogger has criticised Family First’s stance on backing calls for a ban of the men’s magazine Zoo from Countdown supermarket shelves.Family First thinks the magazine should be removed from the shelves on back of a petition initiated by Australian women’s rights advocate Laura Pintur and signed by nearly 40,000 people.But blogger Dr Deborah Russell says it doesn’t make sense to ban the magazine and has instead called for better education around consent and sexual relationships.Family First National Director Bob McCoskrie yesterday said the organisation supports pulling Zoo magazine from all New Zealand retail shelves.“The magazine promotes a rape culture and objectifies women,” he said.Today Mr McCoskrie hit back at Countdown who claimed protesters were “making a mountain out of a molehill” about the supermarket stocking Zoo.“Sexual violence is not a ‘molehill’,” he said.“Zoo magazine is just one example of a confused society that on one hand is content to ignore the promotion of a rape culture and the objectification of women and children, while at the same time express an abhorrence of the “roastbusters’” mentality and lament our unacceptable rates of sexual violence in New Zealand.”https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/feminist-blogger-lays-into-family-first-over-call-for-zoo-mag-ban-q10916last_img read more

Andy Enfield agrees to contract extension through 2021

first_imgAfter taking USC to its best season since 2009 and first tournament appearance since 2011, the Trojans are extending the contract of head coach Andy Enfield — originally under a six-year deal — for two more seasons.The extension means Enfield will be under contract through the 2020-2021 season, adding on to a six-year deal Enfield signed in 2013 that was worth more than $1 million a year.After the departures of forwards Malik Martin and Darion Clark, Enfield’s contract extension adds further consistency to a USC basketball program trending upwards.After taking the Cinderella Florida Gulf Coast Eagles to the Sweet Sixteen in 2013, Enfield has made a new mark at USC and is looking forward to what next season has in store.“The men’s basketball staff is very appreciative of the great leadership and support from our administration and we are very thankful to have talented players in our program who are terrific representatives of USC,” Enfield said in a press release. “We look forward to an offseason of continued development for our players that will set the foundation for an exciting 2016-17 season.”Enfield led the Trojans to their first 20-win season since 2009. He won 21 games, a nine-game improvement from the 2014-2015 season.In the 2016-2017 season, the Trojans will be bringing back all of their starters as well as three quality recruits in Jonah Mathews, De’Anthony Melton and Harrison Henderson.Considering that USC has had six coaches since 2004 including Enfield, extending the former Johns Hopkins graduate was definitely a long-term move in the right direction.Enfield had reportedly drawn interest from other schools with coaching vacancies, including Pittsburgh. Later on, though, the Panthers ended up hiring former Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings, who took the Commodores to the NCAA play-in game after going 19-11 during the regular season.With his recently signed eight-year deal, Enfield will be the longest-tenured coach since Henry Bibby in the late 1990s and early 2000s and will be at USC for half the time of the longest tenured coach in USC history, Forrest Twogood, whose career with the Trojans spanned from 1951 to 1966.last_img read more
