Rise Against Drummer Says No To Animal Tests At CUBoulder

first_imgRise Against drummer Brandon Barnes has sent a letter on PETA’s behalf to his alma mater, the University of Colorado–Boulder (CU-Boulder), urging the school to replace all experiments on live animals in undergraduate science classes with modern simulation methods.As Barnes points out in the letter, students at CU-Boulder currently decapitate frogs, force frightened rats to swim in water mazes, and cut open live rats to expose their hearts, even though superior non-animal methods exist and undergraduate science classes at CU-Denver are taught without using, hurting, or killing any animals.“As a Colorado native and alumnus of CU-Boulder, I was horrified to learn from my friends at PETA that in undergraduate science classes at my alma mater, students cut off frogs’ heads and experiment on their organs, force terrified rats to swim in water mazes, and cut open live rats to observe their exposed beating hearts. After spending the last 14 years playing drums in the band Rise Against, whose primary messages are about fighting injustice, I feel compelled to weigh in on this important issue.“Treating other sensitive, intelligent beings like disposable laboratory equipment is wrong, and—although I was a business and music major at CU-Boulder—I know that there must be better ways to teach undergraduates than by having them needlessly torment, maim, and kill hundreds of animals. In fact, apparently even CU’s campus in Denver, where I grew up, does not include any experiments on live animals in similar courses. I understand that experts such as CU-Boulder emeritus biology professor Dr. Marc Bekoff have provided your faculty members with information on interactive computer simulations and other humane methods available to teach students—a growing majority of whom now oppose animal testing—without hurting animals.“As you know, CU-Boulder states that its institutional vision includes “[t]ransforming how we teach, discover, and share knowledge” and “[b]uilding a 21st-century learning environment.” It’s time for CU-Boulder to fulfill this vision by replacing archaic and cruel teaching methods with ones that are more modern, effective and humane.”Source:PETAlast_img read more

House prices up in May

House prices up in May by Kayla Butler Posted Jun 1, 2015 2:55 pm MDT Here’s a surprise in light of the province’s economic woes: home sale prices in Calgary actually increased in the month of May.According to the Calgary Real Estate Board, the average house price moved up by just over half-a-percent from April, and nearly one full percent, year over year.CREB Chief Economist Anne Marie Lurie tells 660News the amount of new listings in May was unusually low.“They’re down over last year by about 30 per cent. They are below long term averanged just for the month of May we are about 18 per cent below the 5 year average, 20 per cent below our 20 year average.”However, Lurie add the with existing inventory the real estate market in Calgary is balanced.The average selling price in May was $454-thousand, with the majority of single family detached homes selling for less than half-a-million dollars.

Kosovo situation yielding fewer results than hoped in 2016 UN envoy tells

“Ultimately, political and societal reconciliation processes must reinforce each other,” Zahir Tanin, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), told the Security Council. “I hope what awaits Kosovo in 2017 is political dialogue accompanied by necessary progress at community level. In these efforts, the European Union (EU) and UN roles continue to converge.” Established by Security Council resolution 1244 (1999), UNMIK continues to implement its mandate in a status neutral manner. Mr. Tanin said difficulty building a broad political consensus has meant that the territorial demarcation agreement with Montenegro, agreed in 2015, remains unratified, with attendant consequences for Europe’s visa liberalization plans for Kosovo. Political divisions have also made it more difficult to reap the benefits of normalising relations with Serbia within the EU-facilitated dialogue, while Kosovo’s EU Stabilisation and Association process, a major development with far-reaching potential, has been given little focussed attention by officials or the public, he added. Despite the political polarization, some of Kosovo’s leaders are forging ahead with a farther-sighted view of reconciliation, and the re-building of mutually beneficial relations, he said, citing President Thaÿi’s recent engagement jointly with the family associations of both Albanian and Serb missing persons, and his emphasis on treating this issue on humanitarian, not political, grounds. In contrast, Mr. Tanin said, the accelerated passage through parliamentary procedure of a new law on the Trepca industrial complex emerged as another obstacle to constructive dialogue. Assembly members were given less than 48 hours to review the draft, with almost no opportunity given for analysis and argument. The international member of the Special Chamber of the Kosovo Supreme Court has requested that the Constitutional Court review the constitutionality of the law. The results of recent surveys, including one commissioned by UNMIK, indicate that there is little ethnic division in priorities at community level: unemployment, corruption and lack of economic development are the biggest concerns. Among other recent notable findings: The normalization of relations with Serbia is considered to be an important priority in roughly equal proportion in both Kosovo Albanian and Kosovo Serb communities, over 50 per cent in both cases; and Both Kosovo Serbs and Kosovo Albanians, in substantial majority, believe that the Association-Community of Serb-majority Municipalities will increase the security of Kosovo Serbs.“Regardless of these familiar dichotomies between political issues and ground level concerns, the European perspective remains a force for stabilisation throughout the Balkans region,” Mr. Tanin stressed. In their annual reports, the EU and the World Bank continue to highlight low levels of employment generation, and the exceptionally high rate of youth unemployment, he said. Youth unable to find opportunities within accepted parameters are vulnerable to the temptations of alternative narratives, including extremism. Violent extremism and terrorism are evolving threats in Kosovo and the region. Countering this threat requires a holistic approach, in which law enforcement is one essential component, he said. Last week, the authorities in Kosovo arrested a number of individuals who have allegedly been recruited by extremist militants in Syria to plan and conduct attacks in Kosovo and the region. UNMIK is steadily adapting itself to more effectively address the contemporary challenges of Kosovo, he said, stressing the importance of improving the Mission’s relationship with the Kosovo institutions and urging the Council to help advance the cause of reconciliation. read more

Columbus Crew draw English Premier League team Crystal Palace FC

The Columbus Crew hosted English Premier League team Crystal Palace F.C. in an international friendly at Crew Stadium Wednesday and a game with unlimited substitutions resulted in a 2-2 draw between the American and British sides.Forward Adam Bedell drew first blood for the Black and Gold on an arching assist by defender Eric Gehrig in the 15th minute, but the opposition was not deterred as Palace’s Glenn Murray equalized with a 36th minute strike.The final 10 minutes of the first half saw the visiting Eagles engage a tighter defensive stance of contesting for possession, likely inspired to battle after their forward evened the game for them.“From the start, they sat back a little bit. That’s just the way that they, that’s just their game plan,” Bedell said after the game, speaking to what the Premier League squad did differently from the Major League Soccer defenses the Crew face every week. “A good block of eight, good defending … MLS teams, when the game’s 0-0, you just play. You don’t see that, that block of eight very often so I think that was the big difference.”Another Crystal Palace goal by substitute midfielder Jake Gray in the 70th minute of play occurred following a scuffle in the box, during which Crew goalkeeper Matt Lampson pled his case for having been interfered with on the play. The goal stood to give the guests the 2-1 lead after they had been threatening in transition for the majority of the evening.One of the Crew’s three defensive halftime substitutions saw a homegrown player from Bexley, Ohio, in Ross Friedman get his first career action in a Black and Gold kit when he came in for fellow defender Chad Barson.Friedman, 22, had been playing for the USL-PRO affiliate Dayton Dutch Lions but got the call to suit up as a Crew reserve against a top-flight international team.“I think going out at Dayton and trying to do the little things right — not slacking in any way — you know, prepares me for situations like this,” Friedman said. “This opportunity proves to show we can get called at any point. Situations happen and you’ve got to be ready. So I felt happy with my preparation and I’m ready to build off of it.”Columbus notched an 80th minute goal, however, to tie the game once more.Crew center midfielder Agustin Viana delivered a lofting assist from 35 yards away and his attacking counterpart, Daniel Paladini, fought to contact the ball in midair for the equalizing header. The tie game endured through two minutes of second-half stoppage time.“Adam (Bedell) was fantastic. He had a great header and Danny (Paladini) made a nice run trying to get midfielders running into the box. I was pleased over all,” Crew coach Gregg Berhalter said.Berhalter, who played as a defender for Crystal Palace from 2001-02, added that “the defending could have been a bit better.”The game marked the first of three stops on Crystal Palace’s American tour before the Premier League season kicks off in August.The Crew are slated to resume MLS play when they travel to Foxboro, Mass., to take on the New England Revolution in a crucial Eastern Conference matchup Saturday.Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. read more

Over 80 of rents are too expensive for people on housing benefits

Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Jan 26th 2017, 6:01 AM Just one property was available to rent within all of the four categories in two of the locations; Sligo town and North Kildare.

Source: Shutterstock/Andrey_Popov“We continue to call for full rent certainty with rent linked to the Consumer Price Index and enhanced security of tenure.”Rent predictability measures are welcome, particularly the designation of Cork City and the four Dublin Local Authorities as Rent Pressure Zones.Rent predictability must be extended as a matter of priority to other areas experiencing continued rent increases, we look forward to the imminent Housing Agency report which it is anticipated will identify 15 additional areas.Single housing unitsShe added that single people and couples must be specifically catered for, given the disproportionate impact benefit limits are having on access to affordable housing.“44% of those on the social housing waiting list are single (40,342 households) and 2,794 of those in emergency accommodation are recorded as single people without dependents.”She urged that the government’s housing plan be implemented as quickly as possible in order to keep people in their homes.The Simon Communities deliver supports and services to over 8,300 people and families who experience or are at risk of homelessness every year.Conducted between 28-30 November, the report, called Locked Out of the Market VI: The Gap Between Rent Supplement/HAP Limits and Market Rents is the sixth study of its kind conducted by the Simon Communities.Read: A new ‘niche’ lender for property investors is tipped to compete with the banksRead: Property prices will rise in 2017 – with the biggest increases just outside Dublin 9,429 Views By Gráinne Ní Aodha 58 Comments Short URLcenter_img Share Tweet Email THE MAJORITY OF properties available to rent are priced beyond the reach of people dependent on state housing benefits, a snapshot study by the Simon Communities in Ireland has found.83% of rental properties are priced beyond the upper limit for the Rent Supplement (RS) and the Housing Assistance Payment (HAP).This leaves just 17% of all properties available to rent within the RS and HAP limits for the four categories included in the study, which looked at 643 properties in 11 different areas across the country.The average monthly rent for a one-bed property in Dublin City Centre, for example, was €1,900 across 260 rentals. That compares with a RS/HAP rental limit of €660.Between July and September last year, the average rent price rose by 3.9% from €1,037 to €1,077, matching the largest quarterly increase on record.SupplyThe report also found that there were 643 properties to rent over the November 2016 period in ten locations. This is a fall of 44% from 1,150 homes available to rent in May 2015. Source: Shutterstock/ZerborOnly five of these properties were available to rent for a single person within Rent Supplement/Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) limits and only five properties were also available to couples within these limits over the three-day study period.The number of rental properties on the market has increased since the August 2016 study, however critically/crucially the number available to people in receipt of state housing payments decreased from 20% to just 17% of all properties, indicating a growing gap between RS and HAP limits and the market rent.In Portlaoise, there were no properties available to rent – a finding that was mirrored in three previous reports by the Simon Community.Plugging the gap“Already there has been a drop in the number of properties available to people within these limits since our last study in August 2016,” says Niamh Randall from the Simon Community. https://jrnl.ie/3205222 Image: Dominic Lipinski Thursday 26 Jan 2017, 6:01 AM Image: Dominic Lipinskilast_img read more

Washington court Obesity covered by antidiscrimination law

first_imgOLYMPIA — It’s illegal for employers to refuse to hire someone who is obese if they are otherwise qualified for the job, the Washington Supreme Court ruled Thursday.In a 7-2 ruling, the high court said obesity is covered by the Washington Law Against Discrimination, which protects employees with disabilities.“Because obesity qualifies as an impairment under the plain language of our statute, it is illegal for employers in Washington to refuse to hire qualified potential employees because the employer perceives them to be obese,” Justice Mary Fairhurst wrote for the majority.Attorney Mike Subit, who filed a friend-of-the-court brief for Washington Employment Lawyers Association in the case, said the ruling “confirms that Washington has an extremely broad definition of disability” — one that covers more than the federal Americans with Disabilities Act.“I hope this ruling will lead to a sea change in the way that courts think about obesity and disability law,” he said.The ruling answered an inquiry from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which asked the court to determine under what circumstances, if any, obesity qualified as an impairment. The justices said obesity “is recognized by the medical community as a ‘physiological disorder, or condition.’”The federal appeals court is considering the case of Casey Taylor, who sued after the BNSF Railway Company told him in 2007 it was company policy to not hire anyone who had a body-mass index over 35. He said the company told him he needed to undergo several tests that he could not afford — including a sleep study, blood work and an exercise tolerance test — or his only hope for getting the job was to lose 10% his weight and keep it off for six months.last_img read more

Ethiopias Amhara leader army chief shot dead amid coup attempt

first_imgAbiy Ahmed, Ethiopia’s prime minister.The regional president of Ethiopia’s Amhara state and his advisor were killed on Saturday during a coup attempt, in which the country’s army chief was also shot dead. The coup was orchestrated by Ethiopia’s top general, according to a report published with The Guardian. Ambachew Mekonnen and his adviser Ezez Wasie were shot on Saturday, said Abiy Ahmed, Prime Minister of Ahmara, on national television in the early hours of Sunday. A statement from Abiy’s office did not give details on who was believed responsible for the attack. “The coup attempt in Amhara regional state is against the constitution and is intended to scupper the hard-won peace of the region,” said the statement.Brigadier General Tefera Mamo, the head of Special Forces in Amhara, said on Sunday, “Most of the people who attempted the coup have been arrested, although there are a few still at large.”Gunfire was reported from Addis Asaba, the capital of Amhara, by the US embassy. Violence around Amhara’s main city Bahir Dar was also reported. “The embassy is aware of reports of gunfire in Addis Ababa. The chief of mission personnel are advised to shelter in place,” the embassy said in one of its two alerts.The coup attempt comes a year after a grenade explosion left two people dead at a rally Abiy was addressing. He has been hailed for his efforts to end the iron-fisted rule of his predecessors, since coming to power in April 2018.last_img read more

Hate Crimes In Houston Go Underreported Rarely Prosecuted

first_img 00:00 /04:11 Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: During the race for Harris County District Attorney, then-candidate Kim Ogg charged DA Devon Anderson with dropping the ball on prosecuting hate crimes. We decided to dig deeper, as part of News 88.7’s year-long initiative, DiverseCity.In 1998, three white men – John William King, Lawrence Russell Brewer, and Shawn Allen Berry – kidnapped a 49-year-old African-American man named James Byrd Jr., in Jasper, Texas. The three chained Byrd to a pick-up truck and dragged him for three miles, killing him. That crime led to the passage of Texas’s hate crimes law in 2001, as well as the federal hate crimes statute, the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, in 2009. Both raise the level of punishment for any crime in which the victim is targeted because of prejudice.“If we have an aggravated assault, which is a second-degree felony, and we can prove it’s a hate crime, it gets bumped up to a first degree, and we get the higher range of punishment,” says Harris County DA Devon Anderson.Physical evidence alone – say, a bloodstain or a stray fiber – can link an attacker to a victim. But proving hatred as the motive for an attack is often much harder.“We have to prove that the reason that the person or the groups of people were targeted was because of their race, or their color, or their gender, or their national origin. That’s an added element we have to prove,” says Ruben Perez, an assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Texas.Even when an attacker makes finding such proof easy, victims aren’t always willing to cooperate.Conrad Alvin Barrett was driving through Katy in November 2013. He stopped when he saw an elderly black man named Roy Coleman. The following sound is from a video Barrett took on his cellphone, later released to the media:“The plan is to see, if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?”“How’re you doing? Yeah? Yeah? Knockout!”When Coleman went to a senior’s center the next day, workers there saw he was in agony, his face deformed. They notified his daughter.“He was then taken to the hospital,” says Perez. “Turns out his jaw had been broken in two places. He was missing three teeth. He had not even reported it to the police.”Local and federal investigators got involved. When they took Coleman’s statement, they asked why he hadn’t reported the assault.“He said, ‘When I was growing up, if a white man did something to you, you didn’t say anything. Especially if the police were involved, you didn’t say anything, ’cause it could get worse,’” says Perez.Barrett was ultimately convicted under the Shepard-Byrd Act and sentenced to six years in prison.The Coleman case illustrates another point: some hate crimes are never prosecuted because victims are convinced that speaking up will only bring more unwanted attention, even more attacks.“All of us in this business have known for many years that it certainly appeared that hate crimes were being undercounted,” says Mark Potok, a senior fellow with the Southern Poverty Law Center.Last year, Houston reported 27 hate crimes. That’s far short of what one might expect for a city of Houston’s size. Other large U.S. cities – such as New York, Los Angeles, and Phoenix – reported hundreds.“These crimes are all reported on the basis of individuals reporting to police departments, police departments reporting to the state, and then the state reporting to the FBI. So it’s a completely voluntary reporting system,” Potok says.The Justice Department decided to try to get a more accurate count through statistically representative sampling. Its model revealed that roughly 260,000 hate crimes are committed in the U.S. every year, between 25 to 40 times the number suggested by voluntary reporting. The department is still trying to determine how that breaks down by state and by city.One thing we can tell is how many have resulted in successful prosecutions. Harris County has brought hate crimes charges in six cases under the Texas hate crimes act since 2001. Four have resulted in convictions or plea deals. Two are still pending. Federal prosecutors have won convictions against nine individuals under the Shepard-Byrd Act, not just for Houston but for all of Southern Texas. X Sharelast_img read more

Jetstar whistle blower sounds safety concerns

first_imgAustralia’s budget airline Jetstar is facing allegations it is exploiting staff and compromising the safety of its passengers, a former flight attendant has revealed.Former Jetstar flight attendant Dallas Finn quit his job with the carrier just two months after employment due to his concerns over long shifts for cabin crew and staff’s inability to answer simple safety questions, the ABC reported.Mr Finn filed a report about fatigue after flying five return international flights over five days.“The majority of these flights were quite busy, I found that my sleeping patterns were drastically affected to the point of fatigue,” Mr Finn wrote in a report.“The Ho Chi Minh flight is between a 12 and 13 hour day, they would change the pilots over in Ho Chi Minh but the cabin crew would have to fly back,” he added.Mr Finn said his concerns arose after a recent flight experience he shared with fellow Singapore based staff, which during a pre-flight briefing were incapable of answering emergency procedural and a medical questions. “It was the first time I’ve actually been scared of flying because if something went down I didn’t actually know if that crew would be able to back me up,” Mr Finn said.Despite the allegations, the airline maintains it has rigorous safety standards.The ABC reported further concerns that Jetstar’s Singapore based crew are not receiving the same protection as Australian crew by requiring Singapore-based staff to work shifts longer than 20 hours.Mr Finn said Jetstar is exploiting foreign based workers.“I think they are abusing the situation with the working rights, they are going under Singaporean law and Thai law however they are flying above our skies.” According to a Jetstar representative, overseas contracts reflect local market conditions.
