Union College rude over request for photo

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionMy wife recently inquired from Union College whether it would be OK for our family to use their beautiful campus as a backdrop for a family photo session on Nov. 19. My wife called security and two individuals assured her that it shouldn’t be a problem, but one of them gave her the contact information of an individual to contact to be sure.This individual rudely told my wife that the policy is to request and submit a permit application with a $35 fee to do this. This is absurd, and on principle I refuse to pay this, especially in the demeaning way it was demanded, rather than requested in a nice manner. My family and I have always supported this school, certainly financially, since my son is an alumni — his degree had cost plenty.I know of several people who have used the Nott Memorial and Jackson Gardens and other scenic photo spots on this historic campus as photo backdrops. To my knowledge, they did this without even extending the courtesy that my wife did — without issue or permits. Recently, my wife and I walked the campus to select our favorite spots. We saw security twice, we were taking pictures, all we got was a friendly wave from the security guard.I just hope that this so-called policy, and more importantly, the rude behavior of this individual, is not what Union College has become. We will not use their beautiful grounds for our photo day, nor will we ever financially support this college.Bob VielkindScotiaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img read more

This discovery was made after the FA had plans to build a museum that would house trophies won by the North African powerhouse.“Officials of the committee which meets every five years and currently manages the Football Association were surprised that the trophy was not available, in light of their desire to create a museum at the federation headquarters, which would feature the trophy and the national team’s kits,” Shobeir said on the “On Time Sports” TV show.“However, [they] were surprised to find that the Afcon trophy was lost, and decided to open an investigation.”Caf – which is also headquartered in the city of Cairo, in a solidarity move, have offered their support to help Egypt find the missing piece of silverware.“Caf has learnt with shock, reports of missing Afcon trophies from the Egyptian Football Association secretariat. Our doors are open and the @EFA can count on our support in the search for the priceless memorabilia,” read a statement on the Caf Twitter handle. Egypt are the most successful team in the history of Afcon with seven titles, two better than the next successful team Cameroon, who have five titles.The Pharaohs first won it in 1957 followed by the 1959 edition on home soil.It had to take them 27 years before they landed a third continental title, this time on home soil again in 1986.Egypt would be triumphant again in 1998, seeing off South Africa in Burkina Faso before they dominated it three times in a row in 2006, 2008, 2010.The 2006 edition was the third time they would win it on their turf, the only team to achieve such in Afcon history. Egypt were hosts for the fourth time in 2019, but they crashed out at the Round of 16 stage to Bafana Bafana, while Algeria went on to claim ultimate glory in the final by dispatching Senegal.Tags: AFCONAhmed ShobeircafEgyptlast_img read more
