Thousands denounce anti-Semitic attacks in Philadelphia

first_imgWhen news surfaced on Feb. 26 that hundreds of gravestones had been toppled and damaged at the Mount Carmel Jewish Cemetery in northeast Philadelphia and several Jewish centers had received bomb threats, area communities were quick to respond. On March 2, thousands turned out for a lunchtime “Stand Against Hate” rally outside the Liberty Bell at 6th and Market streets.The desecration of headstones at Mount Carmel followed a pattern seen earlier in February in St. Louis, Mo., and at a Jewish cemetery in Rochester, N.Y., on March 2.  An increase in bomb threats against Jewish centers across the country has also been reported. These anti-Semitic attacks are taking place at the same time as a spike in fire bombings of mosques across the U.S.These attacks are not casual acts of anti-Semitism or Islamophobia, but a clear reflection of the agenda of alt-right elements now serving as advisors in President Donald Trump’s White House. Trump’s lip service in condemning these terrorist acts during his congressional address on Feb. 28 fails to cover up his open embrace of Stephen Bannon, Reince Priebus and other openly white-supremacist, anti-Semitic Islamophobes and xenophobes.Attacks on Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the most recent target of anti-Russia attacks from hawks like Sen. John McCain, only serve to cover over Sessions’ legacy as a proponent of white supremacy in the U.S.Unfortunately, the rally in Philadelphia was heavily dominated by Democratic Party politicians who have done little to expose Trump’s racism and links to the right wing, while themselves embracing policies that support attacks on immigrants and other people of color.Several speakers thanked the police — openly ignoring an opportunity to stand in solidarity with Black, Brown and Asian communities under the gun from police brutality. Mayor Jim Kenney, who addressed the crowd, has been challenged by anti-police brutality activists for backing off his campaign promise to end stop-and-frisk in Philadelphia. Fortunately, a few signs in the crowd spoke to the need for solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.Several speakers did condemn and link the attacks on Jewish cemeteries to Trump’s policies of excluding Muslim immigrants, his raids on undocumented immigrant families and the rash of fire bombings of Muslim mosques. Representatives of Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu and Bahai communities were among those who spoke.Several speakers gave background stories about the people buried at Mount Carmel, including many who had survived the Nazi Holocaust in Europe that killed Jewish people, labor activists, communists, people with disabilities and many others.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Phil Hartman, Dean of the College of Science and Engineering, serves on the selection committee for the award and gives his input on giving three professors the award each year.Carter, also a professor of professional practice in strategy, has been at TCU for seven years. She said she was honored to be nominated for the award among other strong candidates from the Neeley School of Business.“It was an amazing thing to think that I could be one of the people considered and would [eventually] win that award,” Carter said.She said that she enjoys the latitude to teach what she is passionate about, as well as students’ willingness to learn as much as possible.Petrovich said that as a professor, his job is to arrive in class ready to engage the students he teaches.“The responsibility is on us to give [students] a return on their investment and make sure that they get the highest quality education,” Petrovich said.The award originated in 1982 as the Burlington Northern Foundation Faculty Achievement Award.  It was formally known as the Dean’s Award for Distinguished Teaching and was given every two years, alternating with the Dean’s Awards for Research and Creativity.Now the award is given annually.Each college nominates one faculty member for each category. The AddRan College of Liberal Arts nominates two, one from humanities and one from social sciences.At the end of November, the Provost Council, comprised of TCU deans, meets to vote on the three winners. After they meet, the award is presented during Fall Commencement. Each winner receives a $2,500 award.More qualifications for the Dean’s Teaching Award can be found in the document below.

Rep. Chu Statement on Vote to Avoid a Government Shutdown

first_img Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Government Rep. Chu Statement on Vote to Avoid a Government Shutdown Published on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 | 1:34 pm Just hours before the deadline to avoid a government shutdown, the House of Representatives passed a continuing resolution to fund the government until December 11, 2015. After the vote to pass the continuing resolution, the House voted for a resolution that would add language to defund Planned Parenthood. Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27), who voted for the continuing resolution and against the measure to defund Planned Parenthood, released the following statement:With this resolution we avoided one looming partisan shutdown only to set up the next for December. Meanwhile, sequester cuts continue to strangle domestic services and our defense capabilities. This pattern of lurching from crisis to crisis while ignoring the requirements of real, long-term budgeting must end. Worse, Republicans once again tried to use the urgency of keeping the government open as an excuse to attack women’s healthcare by trying to defund Planned Parenthood. This ploy, which almost led to yet another government shutdown, threatened to have serious impacts on the health of women and families. I am proud to stand by Planned Parenthood as an essential provider of safe, legal, and quality care.“Today is not a victory, it is just doing the bare minimum to avoid a failure. The sequester must be lifted and government should return to funding as normal. I voted today to avoid a shutdown, but I would much prefer to vote on a budget that meets our needs, helps families succeed, puts our country on a secure footing, and provides real confidence in our government and the economy.” HerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty11 Ayurveda Heath Secrets From Ancient IndiaHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Most Influential Women In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeauty Community News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Make a comment First Heatwave Expected Next Week Your email address will not be published.

Principal for a Day Revisits Jefferson Elementary School

first_img Make a comment Top of the News 20 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. It’s not every day that business leaders can go back to school. Andy Tien, the Vice President of Marketing at the Pasadena Services Federal Credit Union, was principal of Jefferson Elementary School in November as part of the Pasadena Unified School District’s Principal for a Day program. PUSD’s Principal for a Day program gives community leaders the chance to learn about local schools and spend the day learning with students. He sat down with Principal, Amin Oria, to discuss what Jefferson has planned for the holidays and beyond.The Principal for a Day program gives us the opportunity to connect with people outside of our school,” said Oria. “We really are a community school and see [Jefferson Elementary School] as a positive place of growing and interaction.”Principal Oria has participated in PUSD’s Principal for a Day for the past six years and she is eager to build awareness of the programs Jefferson offers. This centrally-located public school offers Pre-K through fifth grade education as well as Transitional Kindergarten, after school programs and adult education classes for parents. Tien plans to incorporate financial literacy courses into the parent’s education classes on topics such as, credit scores, loans and budgeting.These practical skills for parents go hand in hand with the experiential learning curriculum for Jefferson Elementary students. Oria explains that the goal at Jefferson is to provide more than just a “textbook education.” They accomplish this through walking excursions, Metro trips and visits to local institutions like the Norton Simon Museum, The Huntington Library and Kidspace Museum.In addition to these interactive trips, Jefferson Elementary stands out for its commitment to languages and music. This year marks their first class of kindergarteners in the Spanish Dual Language Immersion Academy. This program follows a 90/10 model where teachers speak 90% Spanish and 10% English each year until the ratio evens out to 50/50 in fourth grade. Oria explains that this program helps both native and non-native Spanish speakers become bilingual and billiterate – skills that will help them later in life.“Music is another language – one that people speak all over the world – so, to me, music education fits with the Spanish language dual immersion program,” said Oria. “It shows [students] that there are different ways to communicate.”Jefferson students learn the language of music through a special partnership with the Pasadena Conservatory of Music – the only one of its kind in the PUSD system. This weekly music instruction allows students to learn the drums (percussion), recorder (winds) and ukulele (strings). In addition to providing a means of creative expression and a foundation for arts appreciation, these classes help students learn math, world cultures and how to collaborate in musical ensembles.“We think of [our programs] as offering private school benefits in a PUSD school,” said Oria. “[Students] get many opportunities and receive a well-rounded education.”For more information on Jefferson Elementary School visit www.jefferson.pusd.us.

In an order dated May 8, the Supreme Court had observed that States can consider selling liquor via Home Delivery and/or inculcate indirect sales during the lockdown period to facilitate social distancing.It was widely reported that when liquor sale were allowed in different parts of Maharashtra between May 4 and May 7, alcohol worth Rs.150 crores was sold. The rush was such that police were unable to cope with the additional responsibility of manning the wine shops to control the crowds and wine shops were closed after four days. States like West Bengal, Odisha, Tamil Nadu and Chhattisgarh have already permitted home delivery of alcohol, others like Delhi have started an e-token system and charged a 70 per cent ‘special corona fee’.

Michigan family tries to live waste-free with solar-panel bikes, no plastic

first_imgPhotographer/iStock(GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.) — A Michigan family is documenting their “waste-free” journey with a daily blog in an effort to inspire others to change their lifestyles and combat environmental damage.Erin Augustine, founder of the Carbon Free Family blog, said the term waste-free is more of a mindset than a goal, but it’s a lifestyle choice that guides just about all of her family’s daily activities. “Like absolute zero is unattainable. For me the mindset is recognizing that everything I bring into my life will eventually be waste and then managing for that,” Augustine told Grand Rapids ABC affiliate WZZM-TV on Monday. “We said, ‘Hey let’s try to live waste-free or zero-waste or with a specific focus on plastics,’ so eliminating single-use plastics.”She and her husband, Robbie, started by teaching their two daughters about the impacts of excessive waste. Next, they incorporated lifestyle changes like driving less and using solar-powered bikes for longer trips. They also avoid single-use plastics, utilize reusable bags when shopping and opt for glass mason jars to replace Ziploc bags.The waste-free mindset quickly became a core part of their daughters’ way of life.“When we get in the car, my children remind me of the impact. Hazel will say, ‘Mom, do we have to drive, because you know we’re harming the polar bears,’” Augustine said. “One of the things I love about children is they have ‘A’ plus ‘B’ equals ‘C.’ It’s a very simple narrative in her head. When we drive we’re hurting polar bears.”The family also tries to shop solely at places that will put their products right into the family’s glass containers when they pay. Augustine said sometimes she has to use some single-use paper products, like when she gets her tortilla chips, but says it’s a good trade-off, as paper can go into her compost, according to WZZM.“We’re building community, while we’re going zero-waste. So I have a significantly better relationship with my cheese shop and my cheese lady,” she said.She chronicles her journey daily on her Carbon Free Family Facebook page and said she hopes to encourage millions of people to take up the waste-free lifestyle.When asked about her goal, she said, “I hope we taught something to a person who has never heard of this lifestyle or didn’t know where to start.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
