That’s an unfair message. This social awareness campaign sets the culture that sexual violence is absolutely not tolerated on our campus.”SGA received scrutiny from sexual assault survivors with the “Not on My Campus” initiative, Widick said.In order to increase campus involvement, SGA created a full “It’s on Us” week to combat sexual assault.The events began Monday with a banner signing at the Brown-Lupton University Union.Signs supporting the movement can be found all over campus. (Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.)Students walking to Market Square for lunch were greeted by Widick and fellow SGA members, smiling from ear to ear and asking students to sign a banner.Many students also wrote the three simple words, “It’s on Us,” on their hands to support victims of sexual violence which were shared through the SGA’s Facebook Page.More than 800 students signed the banner.Widick introduced the initiative along with Kat Nestor, director of sexual assault prevention and awareness. As director, Nestor is in charge of coordinating the events that occur throughout the week. Nestor also serves as a resource for victims.For Widick, going forward with the initiative was a no-brainer.“Any issue that prevents someone from having the full TCU experience needs to be addressed,” Widick said. “Whether that’s struggling with mental health or a sexual assault that they had in the past. It’s an incredible opportunity to establish the culture that sexual assault is not allowed in any way here and to help empower victims that they matter and their story matters.”Nestor said she wanted to go forward with “It’s on Us” this semester from hearing the stories of many victims across campus.“It’s not an easy thing to do,” Nestor said. “Especially on TCU’s campus which is so dominated by social culture. It’s all about fitting in and having a lot of friends. I think people are afraid to be vulnerable, so when people are vulnerable in a community like this it speaks even louder volumes.”According to the nation-wide “It’s On Us” data, 11 percent of all students experience rape or sexual assault during college. However, only six percent of college student body presidents believe that rape is a problem on their campus, according to FiveThirtyEight.SexualAssault_statVenngage Infographics“Those are heartstopping statistics,” Widick said. “This is something we need to actively address and the first step to improving something is realizing and recognizing it’s a problem.”Widick said there are two different facets of outreach: movement and bystander intervention training.The movement aspect happened by taking pictures and SGA hosted a bystander intervention training dinner Tuesday night to teach tips to listen, believe and support victims. Wednesday night featured a men’s sex and healthy relationships workshop.The events ended Friday with a keynote presentation on relationship violence by TCU’s Title IX Victim Advocate Leah Carnahan.A senior communications studies major and sexual assault survivor, who asked her name not be used, is grateful the university acknowledges the issue of sexual assault but wishes the university took greater steps.“They should do more than post about it on social media,” she said. “I think they should remind students about the issue once every month. It wouldn’t be too difficult and people may become more passionate about it.”She also suggested that all students should attend a mandatory meeting on sexual assault prevention. By forcing the idea onto students for one week only and forgetting about it for the rest of the school year not a lot of progress is made, she added.Two other schools in the Big 12 conference are involved with “It’s on Us:” The University of Texas and West Virginia University.Nestor said that TCU’s version stemmed from both schools.“Last year was the pilot year for ‘It’s on Us,’” Nestor said. “There were logistical things we needed to figure out. People weren’t completely sure what it was but this year we’ve been able to talk to a lot of other schools.”Widick said she was proud of the student body by the way they took part in the campaign.“I have felt very grateful for the way this community has approached this from trying to do everything they can to stop the problem,” Widick said. “I would love to keep this momentum going to be powerful bystanders against sexual assault.”Nestor and Widick had one goal for this week: placing the power in the survivor’s hands.“If we can help one person feel that they’re not alone and that their community believes them, then we’ve done our job,” Nestor said. “It would be great to have more than one person, but we should let people know that this is a community where they’re safe to share, encouraged to get help and will not be judged if they don’t choose to proceed with legal action.” Facebook Robbie Vaglio Snow temporarily stepping down as honors dean I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina.

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago On Tuesday, January 7, Puerto Rico was struck by a magnitude 6.4 earthquake south of Indios. Puerto Rico, still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Maria in 2017 when the island felt economic losses exceeding $1 billion in Ponce alone. Following the earthquake, CoreLogic expects the economic loss to be maintained within the $1 billion mark.“I am concerned because Puerto Rico hasn’t yet fully recovered from Hurricane Maria, and many of the homes on the island are designed for hurricanes and floods – they’re basically built on stilts, which makes them very vulnerable to earthquakes,” said Leisha Delgado, Founder & CEO, Hello Solutions. “Our experience from Maria tells us that there will be challenges coordinating assistance efforts, and communicating with people in parts of the island without power, so they may not know how to get aid, or know that help is on its way.”According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), this event has been identified as the main shock event (with 97% probability). A magnitude 5.8 event that struck on January 6 in a similar location is now identified as a foreshock.With Hurricane Maria in mind, much of the damage to homes in Puerto Rico is likely the cumulative effect of damage from different events. While in many cases of earthquakes, the cumulative damage refers to the foreshock, CoreLogic notes that damage is rather from the buildings that were partially damaged from Hurricane Maria in 2017 that have yet to be repaired, causing added uncertainty in loss estimation.CoreLogic also notes that there is uncertainty from the effect of demand surge, where materials are in short supply from the repairs from Hurricane Maria.“As such, there could be an additional spike in the cost of building materials and reconstruction work,” CoreLogic notes. “Because the island has been struck by two events in close proximity, repair costs could easily increase by up to 33% without federal or local government intervention.” January 9, 2020 3,452 Views center_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Related Articles Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Veteran Homeownership Rate Surpasses That of Overall Population Next: Detroit Expands Efforts to Prevent Property Tax Instigated Foreclosures Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more

The bench has asked the UT administration to apprise it with the previous years’ data so it can take an informed decision on the viability of opening the “Darbar Move”. “In order to enable a considered view to be taken, it is necessary to have firm information with regard to the implications of the Darbar Move in these times; its impact on the necessary resources at this stage; on the personnel involved (positions and number); financial implications; arrangements (transport, accommodation, security etc) involved and other relevant matters. Past experience would lend guidance to our consideration,” the bench comprising of Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Rajnesh Oswal observed while directing the Registrar General of the High Court to place a report on relevant aspects of the Darbar Move before the next date of hearing. The order has been passed in the backdrop of announcement of formal opening of the Darbar Move from last week of April 2019/ 1st week of May, 2020, by the UT administration on Friday. During the course of hearing being conducted via video conferencing, Advocate Shafqat Nazir appearing for the Petitioner pointed out that the Move involves shifting of thousands of Government personnel at all levels and the shifting of complete administrative machinery, records etc. this in turn would cause “unnecessary squandering” of financial resources of the Government and will also violate the requirements of social distancing. He thus urged the court that the Move be postponed till COVID-19 infection issues have been addressed and the matter is under full control with mobility restored after removal of lockdown. Further, Advocate Faisal Qadri also appearing for the Petitioner submitted that if the administration shifts from Jammu to Srinagar at this point, the security personnel who are critically needed for COVID-19 functions and deployments, as also transport vehicles, would need to be withdrawn for providing security to the Government personnel, securing VIPs and important persons who would all shift to Srinagar. The Advocates also contended that there is a possibility of persons moving, carrying infection. Based on these submissions, the bench has sought information with regard to the implications of the Darbar Move in these times; its impact on the necessary resources at this stage; on the personnel involved (positions and number); financial implications; arrangements (transport, accommodation, security etc) involved, etc. Accordingly it has directed: The Secretary, General Administration Department, Union Territory of J&K to provide details of the government officials at all levels (position/category-wise) who were involved in the four Darbar Moves in the year 2018 and 2019.The Secretary, Finance Department, Union Territory of J&K to provide Move-wise categories/ heads, figures of the finances incurred on the four Darbar Moves for the years 2018 and 2019.The Secretary, Finance Department, Union Territory of J&K, to provide details of the financial benefits (as Move Allowance; Temporary Move Allowance and any other) admissible to the employees, in the four Moves for the years 2018, 2019 be provided.The Director General of Police, J&K to provide the details of the police personnel who were involved in providing security cover to personnel involved in the Darbar Moves in 2018 as well as 2019. He will also provide the number of police personnel who have been detailed on COVID-19 related issues and duties in Srinagar.The Secretary, Estate Department to provide details of the accommodation belonging to it as well as that which was hired houses, hotels, guest houses etc. for providing accommodation to personnel involved in the Darbar Moves in 2018 as well as 2019. The Secretary, Estate Department of the Union Territory of J&K to also provide information of the rate wise and total expenses which were incurred in hiring facilities for making available accommodation to the personnel who had to make the four moves between Jammu and Srinagar (and vice versa) in 2018 and 2019.The Secretary, Transport Department/ concerned Department to provide details of the transportation which was required for effecting the Darbar Moves in the nature of trucks for transporting records etc and the officials as also transportation which is hired for transporting the officials effecting the moves. Details of this transportation as well as the expenditure incurred in the four Darbar Moves in 2018 and 2019 shall be provided.The IGP (Traffic) to provide details of special arrangements (whether blockage of the highway for other traffic) which have been made for the four Darbar Moves in 2018, 2019 on the National Highway-44 (Jammu-Srinagar stretch) and the dates thereof.ADG (Security) to provide details of security arrangements which were effected on the National Highway, Jammu and Srinagar for the four Darbar Moves in the years 2018, 2019.The Secretary, Estates Department to submit a report with regard to the current status of the Hotels/Guest Houses/Residential facilities which are used for housing personnel on the Darbar Move. The matter is now listed for consideration on April 16. Inter alia, the bench also addressed various other aspects related to the COVID-9 pandemic and consequent lockdown. The court has sought reports on the availability of essential commodities amid the lockdown. It has also asked the UT administration to file a status report on the issue of restoration of 4G internet services in the valley. Case Details: Case Title: Azra Usmail v.

Meatpacking facilities still present challenge to containing COVID-19, CDC says

first_imgABC News(ATLANTA) — BY: STEPHANIE EBBSAs COVID-19 cases continue to surge across the country this summer, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday meatpacking plants still present challenges in preventing transmission of the virus and that racial or ethnic minority workers are at much higher risk of getting sick and dying.A new CDC analysis found that 16,233 workers in meat and poultry processing plants were infected with COVID-19 in April or May, according to data reported by 23 states. Eighty-seven percent of the workers were racial or ethnic minorities and 86 have died.Of the 14 states that reported the total number of workers in affected meat and poultry facilities, 9% of all workers were diagnosed with COVID-19. In specific facilities the positive rate ranged from 3.1% to 24.5% per facility.“High population-density workplace settings such as meat and poultry processing facilities present ongoing challenges to preventing and reducing the risk for SARS-CoV-2 transmission,” CDC wrote in its report, saying more widespread strategies like universal testing could help limit the risk for workers.“Targeted, workplace-specific prevention strategies are critical to reducing COVID-19–associated health disparities among vulnerable populations.”Experts in workplace safety like David Michaels, an epidemiologist at George Washington University and former head of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, say the federal government is missing opportunities to do more to help workers in these high-risk jobs by requiring all employers to implement more protections.Michaels said that while new cases among young Americans returning to social activities or bars and restaurants are part of the problem right now, many Black, Hispanic, and Asian Americans have also been exposed at work since the beginning of the epidemic. He cited an analysis of new data from The New York Times that confirmed Black and Latino people have been impacted by the coronavirus at higher rates than whites.“So what’s going on here? You know, these are frontline workers. They’re not able to stay at home like like many of us, they have to go into work every day. They work in factories on farms and grocery stores, nursing homes. Driving buses. They’re making sure that we have food on our table. They’re taking, taking care of our senior citizens. They need income to put food on their tables they can’t afford these are low paying jobs. They can’t afford to stay home,” he said in an interview on ABC News Live.Michaels said the new surges support the argument that agencies like OSHA need to require more protections.“It’s clear proof that recommendations suggestions aren’t enough. We need a rule that says employers have to protect workers, they’ve got to get the right personal protective equipment,” he told ABC News Live.“Look, we know that they’re going to have to get some help from the government because we have a shortage of masks right now. And this is another area I think the government has to step up to the plate and use all of its resources to make sure that industry is producing respirators, gloves, gowns, all the things they’re needed in nursing homes and farms, in assembly line operations, every sort of workplace workers aren’t getting what they need.”Under the Trump administration OSHA has said it doesn’t need to issue any new rules to deal with COVID-19 cases because it can enforce it’s current requirements on workplace hygiene and safety, as well as use other authorities to enforce CDC guidance. But Michaels says that approach doesn’t do enough.“The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which I ran for seven years, under the law can issue an emergency standard right now. That would tell every employer in the country there that what they need to do is they need to make a plan figure out exactly how people are being exposed their workplace. And how they’re going to protect them up to the Secretary of Labor. Eugene Scalia has said OSHA has all the tools that they need. And we don’t need to do anything more. But they’re not really doing anything real.CDC also wrote that “expanding interventions” could help protect workers. Many companies have taken steps like screening employees before they come to work, staggering shifts, installing plastic barriers between work stations and requiring face coverings. But some experts say more changes are needed to allow for social distancing or even installing the type of air filtration system used in hospitals.But CDC found those steps are not universal in all facilities. While 80% of the facilities in the state data reported screening workers and 77% said they required face coverings, only 37% offered coronavirus testing.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Ageism rife in workplace

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Employers in the north of England claim age discrimination is still rife in the workplace, even though two-thirds of them have signed up to the DfEE’s ageism code of practice.Results from a survey of 6,000 large, medium and small organisations show 61 per cent of companies have adopted the code of practice, but 55 per cent of those questioned believe ageism is still widespread in the workplace.Nearly all respondents believe there are benefits to be gained through employing a diverse workforce. And of those questioned, 59 per cent indicated that a mix of old and young staff creates a good team atmosphere.Coutts Consultants, which commissioned the survey, claimed employing a mixed age-range workforce will lead to an improvement in morale.It said the experience of older staff will balance the enthusiasm and ideas of younger workers and lead to effective team working.Respondents represented a range of employers, with 7 per cent from organisations with less than 100 staff, 30 per cent from organisations with 101-250 staff and 63 per cent from organisations with more than 250.Breakdowns of figures revealed that the North West employs the most people between 35 and 44 but the region also employs the smallest number of young and old staff.According to the results, the North East employs roughly the same number of people in the 25-34 and 35-44 age brackets and has slightly fewer older and younger people in its workforce.Peter Barton, managing partner at employee research consultancy People at Work, said companies stand to benefit from employing older staff.He said, “Companies in the retail sector have claimed they benefit from employing older staff. They found older staff give good commitment, are good timekeepers and are good at handling customers.”www.ccgplc.comBy Richard Staines Ageism rife in workplaceOn 5 Sep 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

HR can give techies professional clout

first_imgHR can give techies professional cloutOn 12 Dec 2000 in Personnel Today Change isendemic in business today, but the sheer scale of change in every facet of IT,particularly within the fast-moving environment of e-commerce andcommunications, is without modern parallel. Manybusinesses are growing at a remarkable pace and need to keep finding staff withthe right skills levels in management, communication and leadership if they areto succeed.HRdirectors and those involved in training and developing IT professionals mustnot ignore the need to develop leadership skills. Traditionally,those involved in IT have been, to a degree, isolated from other functions. Nowthe emergence of e-commerce has reinforced the need for the IT function to playa key strategic role at the highest level.Develop skillsITdirectors need to develop management skills to add value across an organisationor business rather than simply manage a set of projects. There are still ITpeople who have risen through the ranks and who are only now being told thatthey need to develop leadership skills – and in many cases they do not knowwhat these are.Strategic opportunitiesThe newbreed of information and technology leaders will be quick to see strategicopportunities outside their organisation and can combine this intuition with anability to illuminate the most complex of these to business colleagues, theboard and the chief executive.Buoyant marketSuccessionplanning in an e-commerce environment is especially important. The marketis buoyant and it remains a challenge to recruit and retain the best.Businesses need to be ready to quickly plug gaps when people move on. The newbrand of leaders in IT will take succession planning seriously and work todevelop, motivate and promote people to become better than them.Personal powerManydevelopment practitioners refer to these new dimensions as personal power – acombination of attitude, belief and behaviour. How IT emerges this century willdepend on the identity, attitudes and spirit of everyone, but in particular ofits leaders.Open approachIT leadersin this new age will combine an open approach to relationships with positiveenergy and a dynamic, can-do attitude. They willhave the ear of the chief executive and be seen foremost as a successfulbusiness person at the heart of the organisation rather than a technical personfrom a department that has often been sidelined. New strategic roleThe HRfunction has an important role to play in helping to bridge the gap between theperception of IT professionals as techies and the new strategic role they haveto play which will be central to business.·       DavidTaylor is president of the association of IT directors, Certus.

One of the most unique aspects of the cultural exchange, however, was a wreath-laying ceremony at the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. The fort hosts a Veterans Day ceremony, and the commanding officer of Teruzuki, Cmdr. Takayuki Miyaji, desired to lay a wreath to show respect for all the Sailors laid to rest there.Russell recently completed an $84 million Extended Dry Dock Selective Restricted Availability (EDSRA).
