Colonel Light Gardens, Australia - October 13, 2017 /PressCable/ —

Ludo Aequitas, a not for profit organization – with its key platform the promotion of mental health and equality through sport was created to resolve the exact type of conflict which has now erupted between President Trump and the athletes of its national sports.

The anthem, flag, standing with hand over heart are symbols, gestures, that the United States uses, more than most, as symbols of respect, honour and a commitment to its values as a country and a society. There is also the matter of its constitution and the rights to free speech. The problem arises when different individuals attach different meanings to such symbols, depending on their life experiences and politics.

In recent times, sport has been asked and involved itself with a number of bio-psycho-socio-cultural issues. These include motor neurone disease, breast cancer, concussion encephalopathy, mental health, domestic violence and poverty with the aim of promoting awareness, education and change in attitudes and behaviour.

Now it is race relations and law enforcement.

Whether to kneel or to stand? Link arms or not? What are the values being debated?

Ludo Aequitas has a compromise: through the adoption of its “Ludo Creed” – a set of sporting and human values; and “Do The Ludo” – a sporting behaviour that offers an alternative to either standing or kneeling. A neutral venue for all.

Ludo Creed – is the central cognitive component to the Ludo Aequitas initiative. “We, the players representing our chosen sport, do solemnly swear to uphold the Ludo values of equality, respect, honour and fair play at all times, and denounce vilification based on Race, Colour, Sex, Age, Gender, Religion, Disability or Social Status.”

Do The Ludo – is the central behavioural component of the Ludo Aequitas initiative. It is designed to symbolise strength and defiance, pride and compassion. It can be done individually, with the right arm in the air with a clenched fist, and the left arm folded across the heart (or vice versa). Others can join in by placing their left or right arm around the shoulder of the person next to them, and their other arm again folded across the heart. In this way a “LudoLink” chain can be established either realistically or virtually.

President Trump, sports people and athletes, the fans, the owners, are all invited to “Do The Ludo” as a show of unity and mutual respect for their position.

Mahrez salvages 1-1 draw for Leicester against West Brom

Oct 16, 2017

LEICESTER, England — Leicester failed to climb out of the English Premier League's relegation zone after a 1-1 draw at home to West Bromwich Albion extended the team's winless run to six matches on Monday. Riyad Mahrez salvaged a point for Leicester with an 80th-minute equalizer at King Power Stadium, but it was another ponderous display by the hosts, who could be set for another season of struggle after their improbable title-winning campaign of 2015-16. Last season, Leicester was defending the title and plunged to within a point of the relegation zone before firing Claudio Ranieri, the manager who masterminded...

Sotomayor: Judging brings emotions, but keep them in check

Oct 16, 2017

NEW YORK — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor told college students in New York City that she sometimes feels "great turmoil" inside when she is hearing testimony on the bench, but works hard to keep her emotions and personal biases in check. Sotomayor participated in a question-and-answer session with Queens College students Monday at an event celebrating the college's 80th anniversary. "You can't do human activity — and judging is a human activity — without having human emotions," she told the crowd at the LeFrak Concert Hall. "The sense of how you deal with it is to acknowledge it....

NYC 'remains a target,' FBI says after bombing conviction

Oct 16, 2017

NEW YORK — The swift conviction Monday of a New Jersey man in a mostly botched bombing mission in Manhattan last summer was labeled a victory against terrorism by law enforcement officials, but they urged continued vigilance. "It's very obvious that this city remains a target," said William F. Sweeney Jr., head of the city's FBI office, at a news conference outside Manhattan federal court after a jury that deliberated about four hours over parts of two days convicted Ahmad Khan Rahimi of all eight charges against him. Sweeney credited hundreds of law enforcement officers in New Jersey and New...

Netflix sinking deeper into debt to fuel subscriber growth

Oct 16, 2017

SAN FRANCISCO — Netflix is sinking deeper into debt in its relentless pursuit of more viewers, leaving the company little margin for error as it tries to build the world's biggest video subscription service. The big burden that Netflix is shouldering hasn't been a major concern on Wall Street so far, as CEO Reed Hastings' strategy has been paying off. The billions of dollars that Netflix has borrowed to pay for exclusive series such as "House of Cards," ''Stranger Things," and "The Crown" has helped its service more than triple its global audience during the past four years — leaving...
