Making a difference in a oneofakind town

You’ve decided to stay with a local family; unknowingly, you’re passed by your new neighbor, who waves as he trots alongside on a white horse. Children laugh and play in a nearby school. You see your hosts as you reach a small intersection. They take you into their home, treating you to dinner and conversation. Tomorrow, you’ll be working with them on their farms, picking coffee and enjoying cane juice freshly squeezed from an antique press. You’re in San Jerónimo, Buenos Aires, four hours away from San José, nestled in the foothills below Chirripó, experiencing a bit of the famed “pura vida.”Starting your daily routine with breakfast at 6, you are to help paint a new soccer field at the local elementary school. The process is to lay down tape across the faded lines and to paint fresh new lines over them. During every break the students have, which is quite often, they come out and start helping you as you paint, which is not only inspiring but also practically cuts your job in half. The growing ball of used tape results in a spirited game of, well, “Tape Ball,” with 40 students running, screaming and jumping on top of each other. You have not had this much fun in you don’t know how long.You wake up the next morning and begin preparing to climb to Frog’s Peak with your guide, don Alvarado. He is 74 years old and supposedly does this hike every day. You start to believe that it will be a piece of cake – but reevaluate at the 800-meter mark, where the trail disappears and don Alvarado takes out his machete. For the next 700 meters, you will have to carve your own trail, which is both unnerving and exhilarating. At, the top, however,  you can see for hundreds of miles all around – an unforgettable vista.These were just a few of the experiences we had as members of a student group that planned a community service project in San Jerónimo as part of our participation in the Atenas, Alajuela-based educational initiative Summit to Summit: Bridge Program, which facilitates the transition from dependent teenager to independent adult. The six-day trips we plan and carry out each quarter as a complement to our usual schedule afford us opportunities for cultural immersion and meaningful engagement with the communities we visit.In the case of our visit to San Jerónimo, it wasn’t just an opportunity to see the sights, swim the waterfalls, and hike the trails (we also helped build bridges to connect hiking paths at the Chakra resort outside of town); it was a chance to live the rural mountain life in the company of a welcoming community, while engaging in an enriching cultural exchange. Our week left us convinced that there is something really special about San Jerónimo. Come and see it for yourself.The authors are students at Summit to Summit. For more information on the program, visit the organization’s webpage. For more on San Jerónimo and its place in the tourism industry, read our recent story, ¡Vivan los Apuntados!

That’s the old boxing proverb, probably borrowed from a Jack Dempsey tug-of-war from 100 years ago. In the case of the NFC West, it’s true. The Rams can beat the Seahawks, but not the 49ers, who of course never take down Seattle. The Cardinals blow a game at home to New Orleans, then take down the Seahawks in the toughest place to win in pro football. Arizona has pulled off the feat three times in the last four years now, which is stellar … or stupidly maddening for fans who watched them blow one-score games against the Vikings, Dolphins and those Saints. None of which are awful clubs. But it remains an incredible feat that of the Seahawks’ six home losses since 2013, half have come from Bruce Arians’ group.

Pujara to bat to his potential Once he starts scoring runs to go with the composure he already has it becomes very difficult for the opposition to have control of the game” Kohli added Talking about the morning session Kohli said they were not overtly worried despite Luke Ronchi and Mitchell Santner going very strong “It wasn’t much of a concern because the reason we scored the extra 30-40 runs was because we could bat them out of the game That’s exactly what we planned to do A target of 430 on the fifth day wicket – fourth day one session and a fifth day wicket – is very very hard to get All your batsmen right till No 10 have to bat really really well So we knew that it was a matter of being patient It’s a good lesson for us good learning” he said “The only thing we collectively decided was that we will take a learning out of this There will be runs scored there will be partnerships but its how we come back that will define our character So going through a difficult situation is very important for us to become better players What I’ve learnt in few matches that I have been captain is that you have to have patience If you get over-excited or keep on bowling in one mould

hard “Whoever has the first advantage over the other team they will go into the second Test feeling more confident for sure But it doesn’t mean that you can take things for granted because we know that we’re playing a quality side “For them to show the resilience and the character that they did over the five days of this game we know that we cannot afford to be relaxed at any stage We got

dual national to be arrested in Iran part of what a United Nations panel has called an "emerging pattern" since the atomic accord The sentencing was only reported by Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency which is believed to be close to Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard a hard-line force answerable only to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei The Guard has been involved in nearly every

who vanished in Iran in 2007 while on an unauthorized CIA mission remains missing as well A year ago Caravan magazine published a lengthy feature on India hockey player Sardar Singh pegged on a provocative question: Is Sardar Singh the last of India’s hockey greats It was a time when the Indian team was struggling for form and Sardar was one of the few bright spots but even then it was a strange question because Indian hockey already had at least one other world class player in goalkeeper Sreejesh Ravindran Watch highlights or repeats of India matches over the last few years and you will Sreejesh come to India’s rescue time and again in goal sometimes making multiple saves during the same attack He has preserved victories earned draws and fought valiantly in defeat to keep his team alive He has excellent positional skills and sharp reflexes which make it hard for opposing players to slot the ball past him File photo of Sreejesh Ravindran Getty His performances are inspiring to watch as a spectator They must be even more so for the rest of the Indian players To watch one of your own give everything he has for the sake of the team inevitably demands that the others do the same When Sreejesh led India to silver at the Champions Trophy last month in the absence of Sardar the first time ever that the men’s hockey team had made the final it was confirmation that India did not have to rely on Sardar to lead the team On Tuesday Hockey India announced that Sreejesh would replace Sardar as captain of the Indian Hockey team less than a month before the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro It is the right decision given Sreejesh’s influence on the team’s performance and Sardar’s own struggles including having to face rape allegations whose proceedings are currently in court in the UK The move is also designed to revitalise India’s midfield maestro by reducing the burden on his shoulders India coach Roeland Oltman said “the philosophy behind changing the captain is that we felt people need to take more responsibilities on the pitch and off the pitch Sardar was taking too much responsibilities (sic) because of which he was not performing at the level that is expected of him By changing the captain I believe Sardar will play a much better Olympics” Perhaps most importantly this is the kind of big bold decision we don’t see very often in Indian sports In the Caravan article about Sardar there is this telling quote from then Australia coach and hockey legend Ric Charlesworth who had a brief and unhappy time coaching India as well “He [Sardar] is very good But you know”— Charlesworth paused and laughed the half-laugh again — “hockey is a team sport There is an obsession in India about individuals in a team game Your cricket team is too individual in nature and so are the hockey players” Sardar Singh is (or was) the biggest name in Indian hockey Removing him as captain was always going to make headlines especially so close to a major sporting event It would have been very easy for the selectors to stick to the status quo and wait until after the Olympics to make a change if at all But they did what they thought would give the team the best chance of success regardless of individual reputation or past accomplishments The same goes the selectors’ decision to drop now former India women’s captain Ritu Rani It was Rani who led India to a bronze medal at the 2014 Asian Games and it was under her leadership that the team qualified for the Olympics for the time in 36 years Yet these accomplishments were not enough to prevent the 24-year-old from being dropped because of a poor attitude and lack of match fitness Once again it was the future that counted for more than the past All too often Indian sports across the spectrum have subsumed the collective in favour of the individual This is to a large extent because individuals have tended to achieve more than the collective and focussing on the individual takes away some of the attention from the failure of the group This is true not just of team sports in India but also indvidual sports But as long as that cycle continues the success of the group remains a secondary concern Against this history Hockey India’s decisions represent a refreshing and encouraging departure Let’s hope they also represent a turning point in Indian sport and don’t end up merely being a blip in the course
