Symposium challenges Native American stereotypes

first_imgA guide to designing your graduation cap Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Linkedin The Leap: Why 13 students spent spring break in the concrete jungle Riley Knight printTCU students gathered Monday to challenge common Native American stereotypes through discussion, education and dance.The gathering marked the second annual Native American and Indigenous People’s Day Symposium. Funded by Discovering Global Citizenship, the symposium focused on the topic of Native American stereotypes and media portrayal through student discussion.Senior communications major Jessilyn Edwards, who attended, said other TCU students could benefit from an event like this.“The majority is not a minority at TCU,” said Edwards. “So I think it enlightens TCU students because it gives them a perspective they might not have ever thought about.”There are 567 federally recognized Native American tribes in the United States, with Texas holding the fourth largest indigenous population. There are three federally recognized tribes currently living in the state: Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas in Livingston; Kickapoo Traditional Tribe of Texas in Eagle Pass; and Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo in El Paso. TCU itself is located on the historical homelands of the Wichita and according to the TCU fact book, Native Americans made up 0.7 percent of the student body last year.Encouraging others to have a different perspective from the one they usually think about was one of the reasons Junior Kendra Hall got involved in the discussion. Hall is the president of the Native and Indigenous Student Association, which sponsored the symposium.“This is something that’s super important to me and my culture,” said Hall. “I don’t have a lot of contact with my people, so this is my way of setting aside my time to research my people and share those experiences.”Hall is a Nanticoke, whose traditional homelands are in the Chesapeake Bay and Delaware.The event also featured keynote speaker Matika Wilbur, a Swinomish and Tulalip photographer from Seattle, WA. Wilbur spoke about her project, called Project 562, which addresses and remedies historical inaccuracies, stereotypical representations and the absence of Native American images and voices in mass media and the national consciousness.“What we know is that in the context of our understanding of the world that we live in, the history is very much going to shape the way that we interact with each other,” said Wilbur. “And we know that history is written by the victor.”The symposium closed with traditional singing and dancing by Comanche Thunder, a Dallas-based drum group, and Tribal Traditions Arts & Education, a Dallas-based dance group.“I think we have to come together,” said Wilbur. “Our histories are intertwined, our faiths are intertwined and no matter where our ancestors were born, or how they interacted with each other, we are now in a time where we can change those things that we believed we knew before today.”Native Americans and TexasVenngage Infographics Linkedin The Leap: Staying on campus during Easter?

With a costly service error by Senior Anna Walsh and two back to back kills by Louisiana, the Ragin’ Cajuns took the second set.“No errors by [Louisiana] in the second set, which also said a little bit about how we played in the second set, [we] didn’t do enough blocking wise to slow them down. We played pretty undisciplined,” Kramer said.TCU came into the third set with a fierce mentality, dominating like the opening set and took it 25-18.The fourth set started off neck and neck and the teams were tied at 11 at the midpoint. Louisiana ran away with the lead with an 11-3 run to make the score 22-14.The Horned Frogs then went on an 11-1 run of their own to win the set and the match.“Great serving performance from Anna Walsh in end of [fourth set] and great defense by our team,” Kramer said. “It was a fun match to be part of especially in that set.”Offensively, TCU finished with a team hitting percentage of .350 and 67 total kills.First-year Elan McCall led the Horned Frogs in kills with 25 in addition to 22 digs, one assist along with a .429 hitting clip.Sophomore Tori Dilfer had a big night in assist’s with a team-leading 57 and found herself in double digits in digs with 11.The team had solid defensive numbers all around, racking up nine total team blocks and only allowing Louisiana to come up with a .212 hitting percentage.Senior Lexi MacLean, 14, and sophomore Berklie Baker, 17, finished with double digits digs as well.The Horned Frogs will be back in action Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. against Montana State to conclude the Fight in the Fort tournament.

The  Division Bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Sachin Shankar Magadum, has sought a response from the Government however, it refused to grant any interim relief.The matter is now posted for further hearing on June 5. The case relates to a petition filed by Social and RTI Rights activist Maruthi H, through Advocate Basawa Kunale and Advocate Hemanth Rao, contending that the impugned notification is liable to be quashed as it is illegal, arbitrary and in violation of the Constitutional and statutory safeguards provided to workers. The plea mentions that notification is in violation of Section 5 of the Factories Act as the said provision permits relaxation of labour laws only in case of Public Emergencies. The explanation to Section 5 stipulates public emergency to be instances of grave emergency where, security of India is threatened by war or external aggression or internal disturbance. “COVID-19 pandemic is a public health emergency and does not come within the ambit of any ‘war/external aggression/internal disturbance’. Both the Central and State Governments have ample power to address such a public health pandemic under the Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897 and Disaster Management Act, 2005 provide for health emergencies,” the plea states.The court has thus asked the Government to clarify in its reply as to what is the public emergency involved in the present case, so as to allow the Government to exempt the said labour laws. The court has also asked the Government to address the following issues:Question of additional wages to be paid to the workers;Safety regulations adopted for containment of Coronavirus in Factories;Justification forblanket application of the notification to all factories. The petition states that while the workers are suffering from the impact of lockdown, the State acting on the representation of Industrial bodies has relaxed the labour laws “in order to mitigate the economic losses suffered by the Factories and not to handle the public emergency.” Further, the petition claims that the impugned notification is vague and arbitrary in so far as it stipulates that overtime wages under Section 59 would continue to apply without clarifying the method of determining the same. “Section 59 provides for paying overtime wages when a worker works for more than 9 hours but there is no clarity as to whether the extra workings hours stipulated under the Notification entitles the worker for overtime wages,” the plea read. Lastly it is contended that the impugned notification, inasmuch as it increases daily working hours without any reasonable justification, amounts to “forced labour” and violates Fundamental rights under Articles 21 and 23 of the Constitution, apart from Directive principles of State Policy.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Next Storylast_img read more

Phoenix couple in viral-video arrest confront mayor: ‘It just makes me sick to my stomach’

first_imgObtained by ABC News(PHOENIX) — A Phoenix couple at the center of a viral-video confronted the city’s mayor and police chief at a community meeting Tuesday night about why police officers who pulled guns on them and their children last month and threatened to shoot them weren’t fired.The event gave Dravon Ames, 22, and Iesha Harper, 24, who is six months pregnant, a chance to vent face-to-face with city leaders over the way they were treated during the now-viral encounter with police on May 27. Both Ames and Harper said they feared they were going to be shot during the encounter. “It just makes me sick to my stomach. I have nightmares of barrels being pointed in my face and all I could think was, ‘How can I save my daughter?’”Ames told city officials at the meeting. “No kid should ever see that, nor should she see terror like that.”Mayor Kate Gallego ordered the community meeting, held at the the Pilgrim Baptist Church in Phoenix, after cellphone videos surfaced last week showing officers screaming profanities at Ames and Harper, manhandling both of them and pointing guns at them and their children, a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old, after they were accused of shoplifting at a Family Dollar store. The names of the officers were not released.“Police were trying to hurt us because she took a doll,” Ames said. “It hurts to see that this is what happens when someone’s shoplifting. If you think it’s about stealing or whatever … mass murderers get walked down and without a scratch.”Civil rights activists and community organizers urged victims who had been shot by Phoenix police officers and families that had lost loved ones to officer-involved shootings and/or police brutality to attend the meeting.“We owe it to our residents to give them an open forum to discuss their concerns with us and to propose solutions,” Gallego said in a statement.Among the attendees were Edward Brown, 35, who was paralyzed on Aug. 5, 2018, when he was shot in the back by a Phoenix police officer investigating drug activity in an alley; the family of Jacob Harris, a 19-year-old shot to death by an officer on Jan. 11 after he was suspected of being involved in an armed robbery; and relatives of Michelle Cusseaux, 50, who was fatally shot by a police officer sent to her apartment as part of a court-ordered mental health pick-up in 2014.One resident, Dante Patterson, said he had a dangerous encounter in January 2018 with one of the same officers allegedly involved in the couple’s apprehension last week.“I tried twice to file a complaint through the Professional Standards Bureau so he does not do that conduct again and you guys ignored me and look what happened,” Patterson said, addressing the police chief directly. “You guys didn’t listen to me, and just know that I’m not going to stop until something is done.”At a Monday press conference, Ames and Haper said they rejected apologies from Gallego and Police Chief Jeri Williams.“We’ve been aware of apologies from the mayor and the chief and, honestly, it hasn’t done anything to help us because it feels like a half apology. The officers are still working. It feels like a slap in the face. It’s like putting some lemon juice on an open wound,” Ames said.A day earlier, Williams said in an interview with ABC affiliate station KNXV-TV in Phoenix that she has “apologized to the family. I’ve apologized to the community.”Phoenix Law Enforcement Association President Britt London released a statement Monday asking the community to be patient until all the facts of an investigation come out.“On occasion, an interaction receives intense scrutiny by the public, the media, the city, and the department,” London said. “That is as it should be — as police officers, each of us must be held accountable under the law. However, accountability first requires the completion of a thorough, fact-based investigation. To hold court using only emotion, without obtaining facts, or ignoring facts, does not benefit our community.”Hours after the couple’s press conference on Monday, Phoenix police released new surveillance video from inside a Family Dollar store in Phoenix purportedly showing Ames shoplifting a pair of socks and his 4-year-old daughter walking out of the store with a box containing a doll.The video also shows an unnamed woman at the store with Ames, Harper and their two children tossing items back on a shelf before walking out with the young girl holding the doll.Attorney Sandra Slaton, who is representing the couple along with former Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne, said Monday that even if allegations of shoplifting were true, “it still would not justify the horrific, barbaric action of this police department.”No charges were filed against the couple, and a $10 million notice of claim, which is a precursor to a lawsuit, was sent to the city of Phoenix by attorneys for the couple.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Labour pledges help to raise staff productivity

first_img Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Labour pledges help to raise staff productivityOn 14 Nov 2000 in Personnel Today Chancellor Gordon Brown promised to introduce new measures to boost workforce productivity in his pre-Budget statement last week.Among them are tax incentives to encourage more employees to “take a stake in their company”. The Government wants to achieve a faster rise in productivity than in Britain’s major competitor countries over the next decade. Increasing employee commitment to a company’s growth will boost productivity, the Treasury said.There will be a consultation period on allowing employees in firms which are not trading on the stock market to pay less tax when they sell their shares.Generous tax benefits have already been introduced for staff working in wholly trading companies.As part of the “productivity challenge”, Education and Employment Secretary David Blunkett will investigate the use of tax-free and free adult learning to upgrade workforce skills.Other initiatives include: A pilot scheme at the start of next year to attract talented overseas staff – skilled individuals will be allowed to enter the UK if they can meet criteria on education, pay and experience,A “job transition service” will help employees and companies shedding large numbers of staff which will provide extra help where large-scale redundancies risk swamping the local labour market, The New Deal for lone parents will be extended to cover all lone parents who are not working or working less than 16 hours a week.
