A document uncovered by Harvard’s student newspaper included ratings of the attractiveness of female players as well as sexually explicit comments.University President Drew Faust called the behaviour “appalling”.The team, currently in first place in the Ivy League, will forfeit the rest of its games this season.In what reports indicate may be a yearly tradition, male soccer players at Harvard circulated documents with pictures of their female counterparts, rating their attractiveness from one to 10 and giving reasons for their decisions.They also noted which sexual position they thought the women in question would prefer.Until recently, the Harvard Crimson newspaper reports, documents from 2012 were publicly accessible through a former team’s Google Group.’Not isolated’Ms Faust said an investigation had found that the tradition had continued to the current season.She wrote that she “was deeply distressed to learn that the appalling actions of the 2012 men’s soccer team were not isolated to one year or the actions of a few individuals”.Ms Faust added in a statement: “The decision to cancel a season is serious and consequential, and reflects Harvard’s view that both the team’s behaviour and the failure to be forthcoming when initially questioned are completely unacceptable, have no place at Harvard, and run counter to the mutual respect that is a core value of our community.”Last week after the original story came out, the female players in question said they were “appalled that female athletes who are told to feel empowered and proud of their abilities are so regularly reduced to a physical appearance”.In an opinion piece published in the Crimson, they said: “More than anything, we are frustrated that this is a reality that all women have faced in the past and will continue to face throughout their lives.”The university’s director of athletics, Robert Scalise, said: “It’s very disappointing and disturbing that people are doing this.”Any time a member of our community says things about other people who are in our community that are disparaging, it takes away from the potential for creating the kind of learning environment that we’d like to have here at Harvard.”The men’s soccer coach Pieter Lehrer wrote in a statement to the Crimson that the team was “beyond disappointed that our season has ended in this way, but we respect the decision made by our administration”.

Rain or fire danger over the coming weeks could delay the completion past this month, county Public Works spokesman Ken Pellman said. Rancho Cordova-based C.C. Myers Inc., the construction firm that rebuilt the Santa Monica Freeway after the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, was hired in July by county supervisors to build the new bridge for $1.5 million. Aliso Canyon Road was closed in July 2004 by the 11,400-acre crown fire, which burned across 12 miles of brush-covered hillside from Acton to the Littlerock Reservoir. ACTON – A two-lane road that closed when a bridge burned in a 2004 brush fire could reopen to traffic by the end of this month. Construction crews are hurrying to complete a new concrete bridge for Aliso Canyon Road, which has been closed since a July 2004 fire destroyed the decades-old wooden bridge along the road. “That is being aggressively worked on,” said Norm Hickling, an aide to Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, who has been pushing for reopening of the two-lane road. County officials hope Aliso Canyon Road – linking Acton with Angeles National Forest – will reopen by month’s end, though no date has been set, Hickling said. Antonovich’s office will send out an announcement when traffic can resume, he said.
SHE’S only been on the job for seven weeks, but new city Planning Director Gail Goldberg is already saying all the right things. “If you have a vibrant city with a good economy, you can expect your city to grow,” Goldberg told the City Council last week. She’s right. Rather than trying to stamp out development, the city should welcome it. But – and this is key – it also must plan for growth intelligently. As Goldberg noted, development must include ample transportation options, adequate schools, parks and green space. And it’s the city’s neighborhoods that know best how to plan intelligently. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinals“We have to have a dialogue with neighborhoods like we’ve never had before. Nobody knows a neighborhood better than the people who live in a neighborhood,” Goldberg said. She can say that again. For too long, city development policies have been determined by the downtown fat cats and their developer buddies, with no attention paid to the needs of the city’s communities. The result has been decades of bad policy that fuels NIMBYism. So credit Goldberg for having the good sense to recognize – and say – that things need to start being done differently in this city. Going against the entrenched ways at City Hall won’t be easy, but for the good of L.A.’s future, Goldberg’s idealism must win out. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – Helped by a record plunge in oil prices, America’s trade deficit dropped dramatically in October, falling to the lowest level in 14 months. However, the deficit with China hit an all-time high for the third straight month, reflecting a flood of imported toys, games and televisions as retailers stocked up for Christmas. The administration is dispatching a delegation of seven Cabinet members to Beijing this week for talks on China’s currency system and other trade practices Americans see as unfair. The overall deficit for October fell to $58.9 billion, a drop of 8.4 percent from September’s $64.3 billion, the Commerce Department reported Tuesday. The improvement pushed the deficit to the lowest level since August 2005, with the percentage decline the sharpest since December 2001. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’It marked the second consecutive monthly decline since the deficit hit an all-time high of $68.5 billion in August, a month when America’s foreign oil bill was driven to a record high because of soaring global oil prices. But after surging past $77 per barrel this summer, oil prices have been falling. The average price for a barrel of imported crude dropped by a record $7.05 in October to $55.47 with the volume of petroleum shipments also falling. America’s total foreign oil bill fell to $21.8 billion, 17.1 percent below the September level. The fall in the oil bill accounted for four-fifths of the total trade improvement in October, which came in far below the $63 billion analysts had expected. The improvement caused some economists to revise upward their estimates for overall economic growth. Stephen Stanley, chief economist at RBS Greenwich Capital, said a narrow trade deficit would likely add about a half-percentage point to the gross domestic product, pushing his GDP estimate up to 2.5 percent for the final three months of the year. “The tone of the quarter just changed pretty dramatically,” he said. Other analysts agreed that an improving trade picture should help the economy as it struggles with a serious slump in housing and spreading weakness in manufacturing. Even with the overall improvement, America’s deficit with China rose by 6.1 percent to $24.4 billion, reflecting big increases in shipments of toys, games, sporting goods, televisions and computers in preparation for Christmas shopping. The deficit with China is at an annual rate of $229 billion, far above last year’s $202 billion deficit, which had been an all-time high for any country. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and six other members of the president’s Cabinet along with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke were to meet with Chinese leaders Thursday and Friday. Paulson has been lowering expectations for a breakthrough in this new Strategic Economic Dialogue, but administration critics said the new trade data showed how dire the situation is. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

As the Premier League edges closer to its hectic Christmas period, now’s the time to get your Fantasy Football team sorted.Fixtures come thick and fast, as do injuries, so it’s crucial to ensure your squad is stacked with form players who never get rotated. Getty Images – Getty Paulo Gazzaniga (Tottenham) – £1.7mHere’s a bit of a left-field shout. Tottenham, like Manchester United, have been in dreadful form so far this season.Backing them to keep clean sheets is a dangerous game at the moment, but things could be about to improve for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.They don’t face any of the ‘big six’ in their next three, with games against Sheffield United, Bournemouth and West Ham.And due to the injury of Hugo Lloris, Gazzaniga looks set to wear the gloves for the foreseeable future.A cheap, ‘big six’ goalkeeper who very few people own? Yes please. Vardy just can’t stop scoring 6 Gazzaniga is Tottenham’s No. 1 for the foreseeable future AFP or licensors Pulisic scored his fourth goal in two matches against Watford AFP Getty Images – Getty Rashford had a difficult time against Bournemouth, but its Brighton up next at home Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) – £3.8mManchester United looked to be regaining some form until their dismal 1-0 defeat at Bournemouth last Saturday.Nonetheless, the Red Devils have an enticing run of fixtures, with Brighton, Aston Villa and Sheffield United in their next three games.Most of their points seem to fall to Rashford, either through goals or assists, and he’s also on penalty duty (most of the time). 6 Admittedly, those are few and far between, but luckily we’ve found five players who won’t let you down over the coming weeks.Some stars have already made themselves indispensable in the game and you risk falling behind if you don’t pick them up this week.But there are also some good different options which could help you gain ground in your mini-leagues.Take a look at talkSPORT.com’s expert tips below.WIN £1K EVERY WEEKEND BY PLAYING FANTASY FOOTBALLJamie Vardy (Leicester) – £4.9mIt usually helps to have the Premier League’s leading goalscorer in your team.The Leicester striker has ten goals in the opening 11 games and he just loves playing against this weekend’s opponents.Arsenal travel to the King Power Stadium in desperate form, and Vardy has scored eight goals in as many league appearances against the Gunners.You might even say he has a point to prove after rejecting a move to the Gunners in 2016. This one’s a bit of a no-brainer. Getty Images – Getty 6 Getty Images – Getty John Lundstram (Sheffield United) – £1.9mIf you haven’t got Lundstram yet, what are you doing?The Sheffield United midfielder is the sixth highest point-scorer in the game, level with Sergio Aguero and one ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.He is a Fantasy Football manager’s dream: a defender in the game, but a midfielder in reality.His exceptional goalscoring form, and Sheffield United’s remarkable results, can no longer be put down to fluke.At this point, you’ve got to expect they will continue doing this all season and get behind their players in Fantasy Football. Sadio Mane has been in top form for Liverpool 6 6 Christian Pulisic (Chelsea) – £2.8mFour goals in two games and now a regular starter for the Blues, Pulisic is emerging as a fantastic option for Fantasy Football managers.Chelsea are light on the ground ahead of the Crystal Palace match, with Jorginho suspended and Mason Mount likely to miss the clash through injury.So Pulisic, who looked dangerous during the crazy 4-4 draw against Ajax, could represent an intelligent way into Chelsea’s points haul. 6 Lundstram is currently Fantasy Football’s best value player
