Museum unveils Knute Rockne exhibit

first_imgFans of Notre Dame football may be surprised to learn legendary coach Knute Rockne’s professional life extended well beyond the game he helped define. The South Bend Studebaker Museum recently opened the exhibit “Knute Rockne: The Rest of the Story,” detailing Rockne’s involvement with the automobile manufacturer Studebaker from 1928 until his death in 1931. Museum archivist Andrew Beckman said the exhibit highlights Rockne’s role as a motivational speaker and celebrity spokesman for Studebaker, working during the football offseason so as not to interfere with his coaching duties. Beckman said the exhibit celebrates the 125th anniversary of Notre Dame football by acquainting people with an interesting, yet lesser-known aspect of the University’s past. “We thought this would be a great opportunity to reintroduce people to a part of Studebaker and Notre Dame history they may not have been aware of before,” he said.   Rockne was Studebaker’s prized spokesman, he said, using him in advertising campaigns and as a representative at sales and industry meetings across the country. The exhibit features old photographs from these sales meetings, as well as other advertising memorabilia. “Studebaker would use Rockne in their promotions, in [public relations] photos, so we have a number of those from the late ’20s, including ones showing Rockne with his players hunched around a Studebaker,” Beckman said. The exhibit also contains one of the “Rockne” line of automobiles Studebaker produced for two years after Rockne’s death in 1931. “Very few people are aware there was an automobile named after the coach, so we have an actual 1933 Rockne five-window coupe as part of the exhibit,” Beckman said. Based on past success with Rockne-themed exhibits, Beckman said he expects a tremendous response for the museum’s current offering.  He said most of this successncould be attributed to widespread curiosity about Knute Rockne’s life. “Every time we do something regarding Rockne, the response is usually surprise followed by fascination,” Beckman said. “That’s what we have traditionally observed.” Beckman said he hopes people visiting South Bend for Notre Dame football weekends will continue their support of the Studebaker Museum. “We try and get as many people down here before the football game starts as we can,” Beckman said. “We’ve traditionally been very busy on game Saturdays, so we anticipate that carrying through this year.” Contact Dan Brombach at [email protected]last_img read more

Rory glory impresses Hamilton

first_img Press Association “I’m excited to be going,” said Hamilton, speaking to Press Association Sport ahead of flying into London from Los Angeles where he has held a number of business meetings over recent days. “I went in 2007 and 2008 and I’m certain that back then I didn’t even have one hundredth of the support I have right now. “That support has really grown over the years. The fans have just been amazing, incredible. “A lot of Brits have come up to me and told me how proud they are, that they are huge fans.” Hamilton recognises what McIlroy has achieved this year, and ahead of the SPOTY event at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow showed true sportsmanship to tell him as much this past week. “I messaged Rory, wishing him all the best for it and told him I’ll see him this Sunday,” added Hamilton. “I also congratulated him on an incredible year because he has been phenomenal, and at his age too.” After finishing runner-up in his F1 debut year of 2007 to Joe Calzaghe and again in his first title-winning season of 2008 to Sir Chris Hoy, Hamilton is expecting to finish second for a third time, not that that concerns him. Lewis Hamilton has hailed Rory McIlroy as “phenomenal” ahead of their Sunday night showdown for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award. “I remember ’08 and losing to a Sir, so I didn’t mind that,” said a joking Hamilton. “But I don’t think I have to win anything more than I have, or to show what I’ve achieved, or to prove how much support I have. “I know I’m aware of the support I have. I never thought I’d have people tuning in to their TVs or turning up at races to support me. “And this isn’t like I’m going for the world championship and I’m dying to win it with everything in my power. “Instead this is one of those events where you feel quite privileged to be amongst all the great stars also there. “I know it’s going to be a good experience being there – although I do anticipate me being runner-up again!” After what has been a whirlwind past two weeks for Hamilton following his championship triumph, SPOTY represents the last awards event prior to him finally taking a break. “The last couple of weeks have been pretty intense, pretty crazy with interviews, doing stuff for Mercedes, various other awards shows. “I’ve not really had any time for myself, but I’m still on a high, and the reception and response has been amazing. “But after these awards I’m gone. “Every year you have to be very selfish with your time. I believe you have to be because it is such a long year. “You have to get away as soon as possible, have a couple of weeks’ break and then start training again just before Christmas for the next season. That’s what I like to do. “This year the BBC Sports Personality has shifted everything later, so my break starts a lot later than usual, and now I can’t wait.” There is a 10-strong shortlist with McIlroy tipped to win the public vote and become the first golfer to win the award since Nick Faldo in 1989. Jo Pavey, whose 10,000m gold medal in Zurich made her the oldest female European champion in history at the age of 40 years and 325 games, is one of four female contenders and has described her inclusion as “beyond my wildest dreams”. Olympic skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold did her own chances no harm by claiming victory in the opening World Cup race of the new season in Lake Placid on Friday night. Yarnold, who will jet back across the Atlantic to be present at the ceremony, warned she could be star-struck by the big occasion. Yarnold told Press Association Sport: ” ‘I didn’t watch things like Sports Personality when I was a kid because I wasn’t allowed to watch much TV, but in recent years I have become aware just how prestigious it is. ”For me it’s all about getting to meet my sports heroes, the types of people I would never get to meet in everyday life like Rory McIlroy and Max Whitlock. I follow these people when I am away and it is going to be great to meet them in person.” Skier Kelly Gallagher, who with her guide Charlotte Evans was crowned Great Britain’s first Winter Paralympic champion, and all-conquering dressage rider Charlotte Dujardin are also included on the list. Gareth Bale is the only footballer to make the cut after an impressive first season with Real Madrid, while boxer Carl Froch also earns a place after his conclusive Wembley rematch win over George Groves. The list is completed by gymnast Max Whitlock, who won world, European and Commonwealth medals in 2014, and swimmer Adam Peaty, who won four European titles and two Commonwealth Games golds. McIlroy has long been a clear favourite for the honour given his wins this year in The Open and USPGA, as well as helping Europe to victory in the Ryder Cup. But after claiming his second Formula One world title a fortnight ago in Abu Dhabi, so Hamilton’s odds have shortened considerably and he is pushing McIlroy to the wire. last_img read more

6 questions for Minister Patterson

first_imgDear Editor,It is the private business of the Patterson family how they deal with their personal situation in regard to an allegation of trafficking of a controlled drug (cocaine) against one of their members. It is, however, a public matter for the people vs Derrick Patterson; not David Patterson. If anyone has an interest in this case, I suggest they take it up with the person who is charged, and not use the occasion to personally abuse the Minister.So the portions of the statement from David Patterson – the individual giving support to his brother — must be commended. We all have families, and if for any reason any one of them falls into any situational challenge, it is our duty to offer them our love, irrespective of how annoyed we are at their action.That is why I was baffled that David Patterson, the person, chose — in his statement at the bottom half — to import the voice of David Patterson, the Public Infrastructure Minister, into the debate. Since David Patterson the Minister spoke, I thought it might be wise to ask the Minister these six important questions, since he has executive access to the machinery of the State:1: Were the controlled drugs (cocaine) trafficked from Guyana to Grenada?2: Did the person on remand, who is a relative of the Minister, have a VIP Pass for our international ports of exit (airport, etc)?3: Which Minister is in charge of the airport?4: Is it common practice across the Granger Government to issue relatives of senior functionaries with VIP Passes, although they may not meet the criteria as set out by the Foreign Affairs Ministry?5: Which Minister is in charge of security at the airport? And is that Minister a member of the Alliance For Change?6: Does the security protocol allow VIP Pass-holders to be checked for controlled drugs (cocaine)?I would really appreciate full transparency and disclosure on this important matter, since if this VIP Pass situation is being abused at our ports of exit, good governance would dictate that we do the “fit and proper” thing by taking corrective measures immediately, and hold those who are abusing it accountable.Regards,Sasenarine Singhlast_img read more

The Phone Pitch: Should You Make the Call?

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Despite all the various communication tools we have at our disposal – email, Skype, phone, video conferencing, instant messaging – nothing beats a face-to-face meeting. And when it comes to pitching to a potential investor, a face-to-face interaction is coveted and more often than not crucial. But face-to-face meetings aren’t always possible, due to timing or logistics. So can you – should you – pitch over the phone?Fred Wilson wrote a blog post on phone pitches last week, advising entrepreneurs not to make them. He contends that “they aren’t very effective. I hate taking them and almost never do. I don’t think they allow the entrepreneur to show themselves very well which is the most important thing of all.”VC Sarah Tavel responded to Wilson with a post “In defense of phone call pitches.” Although she agrees that face-to-face meetings are preferable, she argues that there may be times when a phone call is useful. Cautioning entrepreneurs against writing off phone calls altogether, she says they can be “a good first step.”Tavel stresses that phone calls with investors needn’t be funding pitches. “For me, the call is not about a go/no go on an investment,” says Tavel, “it’s about a go/no go on investing more time.” An introductory phone call can be thought of, then, as a pitch for a face-to-face meeting. Both Tavel and Wilson agree that this sort of call should be kept short. Think elevator speech. The goal of the call is several-fold: To introduce yourself. To assess an investor’s interest. To set up another meeting (preferably face-to-face).Although location and logistics can make in-person visits tricky, “There really is nothing like the in person, face to face meeting when it comes to fundraising or any kind of high level sales effort,” argues Wilson. Phone calls shouldn’t be avoided altogether, but save your pitch to make in person. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts audrey watterscenter_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#start#tips last_img read more
