Danny Glover Why I Support The Sanders Institute

first_imgSanders Institute Founding Fellow Danny Glover has revealed why he supports the organization dedicated to transforming democracy through research, education, outreach and advancement of bold, progressive ideas and values.“The present state of our country and of our world beckons to all of us,” wrote the actor in an email to supporters of the Sanders Institute. “As we confront climate change, multiple refugee crises, the threat of global conflict, and a disturbing normalization of fascism, our collective future mandates that we unite around calls for justice with a sense of urgency – justice for women, justice for LGBTQ communities, justice for immigrants, justice for racial and ethnic minorities, justice for religious minorities, justice for the economically disenfranchised, justice for our environment. We are called to defend the self-evident truths upon which democracy is built – equality, freedom, and the ability to pursue personal fulfilment – from forces rooted in falsehood, manipulation, and demagoguery. To do so, we must inform ourselves thoroughly and organize effectively. It is in this spirit that I support the Sanders Institute in actively engaging citizens and media in the pursuit of progressive solutions to economic, environmental, racial, and social justice issues.”Glover is a Sanders Institute Fellow with Jeffrey Sachs and Harry Belafonte. The mission of the Sanders Institute is to revitalize democracy by actively engaging individuals, organizations, and the media in the pursuit of progressive solutions to economic, environmental, racial, and social justice issues.“The Sanders Institute’s focus on individuals and media speaks directly to the terrain of the digital age,” wrote Glover. “Its emphasis on progressive solutions speaks to our collective need to defend our highest ideals by effecting positive change. While mendacity can be a shortcut to power, that power is ultimately unsustainable. We must speak powerful truths to power; truths rooted in our diversity and interconnectedness. In recognizing the ways in which we all have something to contribute and the ways in which we all depend on one another, we harness the value of our differences to establish powerful coalitions; coalitions that can effectively counter the rigidity and isolation of illiberalism. As a Fellow of the Sanders Institute, I offer my experience in supporting social justice movements around the world on issues like environmental justice, labor, economic inequality, and racism, and I hope to inspire a new generation of socially engaged citizens in fighting for justice and equality for all.”To find out more about the Sanders Institute, click here.last_img read more

Long Inuit wait for residential school apology from prime minister ends Friday

first_imgThe Canadian Press ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Jimmy Tuttauk was working on the remote coast of northern Labrador when he first heard that Ottawa was settling with former students of residential schools.It was 2007 and he was listening to a radio news report that sent his heart soaring – until he realized the awful truth.“My God, how could they have left us out?” Tuttauk recalled thinking as it became clear Aboriginal children who suffered in similar dorms and classrooms in Labrador and northern Newfoundland were excluded.“It was never about the compensation,” he said of the decade-long legal odyssey that followed. That traumatic journey, fraught with nightmares of abuse that never fully fade, culminates Friday with what Tuttauk and so many others have longed for: an official apology.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is to attend a ceremony in Goose Bay, including Inuit singers and drummers, that’s expected to draw more than 300 people.Tuttauk, 57, will be there.“Mean, nasty things happened to little children under the government’s watch,” he said from his home in the Inuit community of Hopedale.“It was about the apology and finally being recognized that we weren’t lying all these years.”The previous Conservative government argued Ottawa was not responsible for schools in North West River, Cartwright, Nain and Makkovik, all in Labrador or in St. Anthony in northern Newfoundland. The International Grenfell Association ran three of the schools, while the Germany-based Moravian Missionaries ran the other two.They were left out of then-prime minister Stephen Harper’s apology in the House of Commons in 2008. Nor were they eligible for a related compensation deal that has paid out to those who attended residential schools across the rest of Canada.Lawyers for more than 800 plaintiffs countered that, after Newfoundland joined Confederation in 1949, Ottawa had the same legal duty to Aboriginal students in the province.The Liberal government offered a $50-million package last year to settle claims of sexual and physical abuse along with the loss of language and culture.Students who lived in school residences for less than five years were eligible for $15,000 in general compensation while those who lived there five years or more could receive $20,000.Compensation for sexual or significant physical abuse up to about $200,000 was based on sworn testimony.More than 120 members of the class action died waiting for a resolution.Plaintiffs’ lawyer Steven Cooper said 960 former students or their estates have received payments. Of those, around 120 were eligible for higher amounts for the worst abuse.“We’ve certainly asked the prime minister to be sensitive to the fact that there was a large group of people who suffered similarly before Newfoundland joined Confederation.”Cooper said the lawsuit did not seek damages prior to 1949 because modern courts lack jurisdiction before that date when Newfoundland was its own dominion.Some former students are rejecting the apology on that basis, but “the vast majority” accept it, he added.“There’s going to be a lot of tears shed,” he said of Friday’s ceremony.“I have never in my life, and I know that I never will meet a more loving, patient, understanding, forgiving group of humans.”Tuttauk received both types of compensation. He is among 29 former students who were the only ones in Canada forced to testify in open court about horrific ordeals many had never spoken of before.He was nine years old when he moved into the school in North West River. He has described how a former male staff member molested him during bath time, and how he was sexually abused for three years before hitchhiking to nearby Goose Bay to be with his mother, who was ill.“I believe my mother got convinced it was in the best interest for me and my younger sister to go there for education and probably betterment,” he said. “I don’t know, but it wasn’t for the better, I can tell you.”Tuttauk later battled addiction and worked as a heavy equipment operator. He is the father of five children and now has six grandchildren. Today, he helps young people overcome addiction.To know a prime minister will, at last, apologize “means everything,” he said.Still, Tuttauk wants to see more federal support for clean drinking water, housing and other needs in Aboriginal communities.“There’s little kids still suffering today.”last_img read more

Sudan UN rights expert voices concern at alleged torture censorship

4 June 2009In spite of some positive steps made by the Sudanese Government, reports of arbitrary arrests, torture and press censorship, along with the situation in the war-ravaged Darfur region, are cause for concern, an independent United Nations human rights expert said today. In spite of some positive steps made by the Sudanese Government, reports of arbitrary arrests, torture and press censorship, along with the situation in the war-ravaged Darfur region, are cause for concern, an independent United Nations human rights expert said today.Sima Samar, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Sudan, wrapped up an 11-day visit to the country today. She noted such positive developments as Sudan’s ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the passing of the Human Rights Commission Act.One of the “most notable” developments in Sudan has been the creation of Human Rights Forums for Darfur and other areas, she said. The Forums’ co-chairs include the UN peacekeeping mission in Sudan (UNMIS) and the hybrid UN-African Union force in Darfur (UNAMID).But despite these strides, “I remain concerned about a number of human rights issues in the country,” Ms. Samar said, such as cases of arbitrary arrests, detention, and allegations of ill-treatment and torture by security forces, including the National Intelligence Security Service (NISS).The National Security Forces Act, which gives the NISS its powers of arrest and detention, are also cause for concern, she noted, calling on the Government to improve and facilitate the access of human rights officers from both UNMIS and UNIMID to detention centres across Sudan.Reports of ill treatment and torture of human rights defenders are also extremely worrying, as is the ongoing newspaper censorship and restrictions on freedom of expression for journalists and the political opposition, the expert stressed.“In view of the upcoming elections in February 2010, it is imperative that restrictions on freedom of expression and association be removed to create a conducive environment for free and fair elections,” she said.On Darfur, Ms. Samar pointed out, the “fluid and unpredictable” security situation is having a “direct bearing” on the human rights situation in the region, which remains a “zone of conflict.”During her visit to the Kalma camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs), she heard the uprooted voice concern over the expulsion of international non-governmental organizations (NGOs).Immediately after the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest warrant for President Omar Al-Bashir in March for alleged crimes committed in Darfur, Sudan expelled 13 aid groups, who were aiding nearly 5 million people, from the region.The Government and the UN have tried to fill the humanitarian gap left in the wake of the NGO expulsions, but the Rapporteur, who last visited Sudan last March, said that they alone do not have the required capacity.Both the humanitarian and human rights situation in Southern Sudan is also a cause for worry, she stressed, with several hundred civilians having been killed in clashes among tribes in Jonglei state.“The size and scale of inter-tribal clashes over cattle rustling has been unprecedented, with the use of sophisticated firearms and targeting of women and children in villages,” Ms. Samar said. Although UNMIS forces are trying to stem such attacks, “the sustainable solution to this problem will involve a proactive deployment of state security forces in areas of potential conflict, and a well-designed and peaceful civilian disarmament campaign.” read more

One patient told me she overheard a member of staff referring to

first_img Jan 29th 2017, 12:00 PM Sunday 29 Jan 2017, 12:00 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article ‘One patient told me she overheard a member of staff referring to her as “just a psychiatric case”‘ Our health service must place a greater priority on the physical healthcare needs of people with mental illness, writes Dr Stephen McWilliams. 15 Comments By Dr Stephen McWilliamscenter_img Dr Stephen McWilliams Short URL 392 Views Share Tweet Email PATIENTS SOMETIMES TELL me that, by virtue of their existing mental illness, they must work twice as hard to have their physical illnesses taken seriously by the health service.In the waiting rooms of general hospitals, accident and emergency departments and outpatient clinics, they overhear themselves talked about primarily with reference to their anxiety, depression or psychosis, even when their reason for attending is purely physical.One such patient told me she overheard a member of staff referring to her as “just a psychiatric case”. Another recalled being informed by a general nurse (in a private medical hospital), “we don’t do mental health here.” Such examples are not unusual.These attitudes, where they exist, come at a costPsychiatric patients often feel marginalised in general medical settings. They receive less effective and often delayed care for their physical illnesses because such symptoms are frequently eclipsed by their psychiatric diagnosis.My patients are not alone in experiencing this. The phenomenon – termed “diagnostic overshadowing” – has been highlighted as a real problem in the healthcare of individuals with psychiatric illness.Diagnostic overshadowing is a major theme in a recent report by the Royal College of Psychiatrists in London entitled: “Whole person care: from rhetoric to reality – Achieving parity between mental and physical health.” In Ireland, the drive to reduce costs has seen funding for the treatment of psychiatric illness gradually shrink in comparison to that for physical illness.This is despite the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimation that 350 million people worldwide have depression, making it the world’s leading cause of disability. Mental illness and physical illness are a long way from gaining parity of esteem. They simply are not seen as equally important. It is little wonder people with mental illness sometimes feel disenfranchised.Separation of mental illness and physical illness is largely artificial Source: Shutterstock/Alexander RathsThey often occur in the same people. A recent report by the UK think-tank QualityWatch examined 100 million hospital episodes annually over five years. They found that almost half of people with mental ill health have a concurrent physical condition. They are four times more likely to die of respiratory (lung) disease and 2.5 times more likely to die of cardiovascular disease.QualityWatch also reported that people with serious mental illness die 10 to 17 years younger, which echoes a WHO assertion that individuals with schizophrenia die 10 to 25 years younger.Suicide accounts for some of this, but physical illness is the main reason. For example, people with schizophrenia are six times more likely to smoke heavily, while approximately half are significantly overweight. Up to 15% have diabetes and 58% have elevated blood pressure.Meeting medical needsAs a general rule, meeting the medical needs of any patient will reduce the amount of emergency care they need relative to planned care. People with mental illness have 10% fewer planned medical admissions than the general population, according to QualityWatch.Instead they have three times more A&E attendances and almost five times more emergency admissions. Less than one in five of these emergency admissions among psychiatric patients are to address their mental health needs; most are for the potentially-preventable complications of common illnesses such as high blood pressure, heart disease, epilepsy and various infections.Individuals with underlying mental illness are more likely to be admitted overnight and they generally remain longer in hospital.Deaths that could be avoidedIt is little wonder that the UK National Health Service has estimated that some 40,000 deaths might be avoided each year if individuals with serious mental illness were afforded the same amount of physical healthcare as the general population. The equivalent number of deaths annually based on Ireland’s population would be almost 3,000.In the words of the WHO, the reduced life expectancy of individuals with serious mental illness is due to “a society socially and functionally biased towards the population living with severe mental disorder.”They die earlier not because of their psychiatric illness per se, but “because of the discrimination and lack of access to good health services.” The WHO further asserts that stigma is the biggest barrier preventing people with severe mental illness from receiving effective care.People with mental illness already get a raw dealIt behoves our health service (our Government and, indeed, society) to place a greater priority than it currently does on the physical healthcare needs of people with mental illness.With various mental health campaigns, public and professional knowledge is improving. But perhaps influencing attitudes is the greater challenge.Dr Stephen McWilliams is a consultant psychiatrist and author. He is clinical lead of the Psychosis Programme at Saint John of God Hospital, Stillorgan, Co Dublin. @McWilliamsMD“We have always found ways to lock up mentally ill people”: The disturbing history of Irish asylums>Outrage as Government accused of U-turn on mental health budget commitment>last_img read more

Four charged over attack on Thessaloniki mayor

first_imgFour men were charged on Monday over an attack on Thessaloniki’s mayor, Yiannis Boutaris.The 75-year-old was attacked on Saturday during a ceremony in the city, honouring the 353,000 victims of the genocide against Pontian Greeks by Ottoman Turkey on the territory of Asia Minor in 1915-1923, during and after World War I.Thrown to the ground, he was then attacked by some 12 people, who started to kick and punch him all over. As a result, Mr Boutaris was hospitalised.According to the director of Ippokrateio Hospital of Thessaloniki, Vana Papachristodoulou he was treated for a leg injury and bruises, and wanted to leave immediately “but we insisted and kept him overnight”, she said.After being discharged on Sunday Mr Boutaris told reporters that he had “lived a nightmare”.“They were hitting me everywhere. Kicks, punches, the lot,” he said.“It was a despicable attack but I am well.”The Greek government openly condemned Saturday’s violence, dubbing the perpetrators “extreme-right thugs”.Meanwhile the attack was praised by Ourania Michaloliakou. The daughter of the founder and leader of Greece’s Golden Dawn party Nikos Michaloliakos, she accused Mr Boutaris of being “anti-Greek”.“Bravo to each and every person individually who did their duty in Thessaloniki today. Respect and a thousand bravos to you all,” Ms Michaloliakou tweeted on Saturday.The suspects, two aged 20, one 36, and another 17, were charged by Greek authorities under accusations of causing grievous bodily harm, along with breaching peace at the event.One of the suspects openly attributed his actions to being angry with the liberal mayor, following a recent statement about pursuing friendlier relations with neighbouring Turkey.Another two told police that they were influenced by the rest of the crowd, and were apologetic for their actions.They expected to be brought to trial on Wednesday, following a request for a two-day deferral by their lawyers.Given one of the suspects is aged 17, he will be tried separately in a court for minors. No trial date has been announced for him as yet.Meanwhile prosecutors are undertaking a separate investigation to see whether charges can be brought against those who instigated the attack, and have yet to be unidentified.

DynamoDB le service Cloud libre novateur et performant dAmazon

first_imgDynamoDB, le service Cloud libre, novateur et performant d’AmazonLes professionnels se voient proposer par Amazon un Cloud très intéressant et différent des autres, à 1 dollar (0,77 euros) par mois pour chaque gigaoctet. Il s’agit du premier réseau à fonctionner en NoSQL sur des disques SSD. Les bases de données d’entreprises sont de vrais casse-têtes, mais doivent être à la fois massives et performantes. Avec DynamoDB (lien non disponible), Amazon propose une base plus simple que les bases SQL classiques, et donc plus performante. Les clients peuvent, en quelques clics, créer, dimensionner et piloter une base de données NoSQL. Les bases NoSQL sont un outil de choix pour les développeurs web, les grands réseaux comme Google, Amazon, Facebook ou eBay, trop vastes pour des bases SQL. Bien que NoSQL signifie « Not Only SQL », il s’agit en fait d’une base qui reprend les fondamentaux d’une base SQL, mais sans toutes ses fonctions avancées. La spécificité des NoSQL est de diminuer les liens entre les données, ce qui rend les très grands volumes de données moins couteux.Mais Amazon DynamoDB ne pourrait exister sans son autre atout: un service reposant entièrement sur des disques SSD. Cette nouvelle génération de mémoires, proche des clefs USB, propose des temps d’accès bien plus réduits que les disques durs classiques. L’accélération des entrées et sorties de données dans la DynamoDB est ce qui permettra à Amazon de tirer le plein parti du NoSQL.

Messis brilliance takes Barcelona to the next round

first_imgA goal and an assist from the Argentine are what finally gave FC Barcelona the Group of Death’s top spot against PSV Eindhoven at Phillips Stadium.There is no denying it, Lionel Messi is dead serious about winning the UEFA Champions League this season as he proved it once again this Wednesday with a goal and an assist for Barcelona against PSV Eindhoven.Maybe some people thought that this match would be easy for the Catalan club, but the Dutch champions really took them to the extreme as they needed to push themselves all the way to the second half in order to get the first goal.There was nobody else but Lionel Messi to take them out of this problem, playing at Eindhoven proved to be extremely difficult because there weren’t many spaces to create chances due to how well-organized the defense was.The fact that Luis Suarez missed this match due to an injury, crippled Barcelona’s attacking powers and the manager even decided to play Ousmane Dembele from the very start of the match.Philipe Coutinho also started, the Brazilian was coming back from an injury and this was the first time he started a game since he suffered it.The first half actually ended with Barcelona not being able to pick the PSV Eindhoven lock, the biggest moments of the match were reserved till after an hour had passed.⏰ All over in Eindhoven!⚽ PSV Eindhoven 1-2 FC Barcelona👟 Luuk de Jong / Messi & Piqué🙌 Top of Group B!🔵🔴 #PSVBarça— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) November 28, 2018After the 60-minute mark, Dembele combined with Messi while entering the box. The Argentine took the ball and gifted us with yet another impossible dribble with a goal included that amazed even the PSV fans.The Argentine made his maneuver between five opponents and managed to bury his shot in the top corner after he released a potent shot with his left foot, a goal that served him to reach his 66th goal in the same number of matches during the group stage.The man has also scored 40 knock-out stage goals, which leaves him with an impressive 106 Champions League conquers throughout his career.An out of this world stat to a completely out of this world player, but Lionel had only just started his personal showcase for the evening.Barcelona had only scored one goal so far, the final outcome of the match was nowhere near completed and PSV Eindhoven was still attempting to equalize the game by any means they could do it.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.There were several moments in which either side could’ve scored the next goal, but Barcelona was the most fortunate one after finding the back of the net once again before their rival.1️⃣2️⃣ teams are qualified for the @ChampionsLeague last 16:FC BarcelonaManchester CityFC Bayern MunichReal Madrid CFJuventus FCA.S RomaFC PortoAFC AjaxAtlético Madrid Borussia DortmundManchester UnitedFC Schalke 04— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) November 28, 2018Twenty minutes before the final whistle, Lionel Messi himself was the man responsible for that second goal after serving a clinical assist to Gerard Pique during a set-piece for Barcelona.This second goal was a total life-saver, especially because PSV did manage to score one goal during the final minutes through a Luuk de Jong header that gave the locals a good eight final minutes to possibly getting that draw.In the end, Barcelona was able to hold the fort and got those three points that secured them the Group of Death’s top spot.It doesn’t matter how they do in the final match against Tottenham Hotspur, Barcelona is already expected to rest many of their star players for that match in order to save some energy for the long season that is still ahead.This victory is great news for the Spurs, because this means they will have a bigger chance to qualify to the next round after they managed to win their respective match against Internazionale Milano simultaneously.⏰ RESULTS ⏰✔️ Atlético, Porto, Schalke & Dortmund qualify for last 16! 👏👏👏😍 Best performance tonight?#UCL— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) November 28, 2018How would you describe Lionel Messi’s performance tonight against PSV Eindhoven?

Black Money Yash Birla Among Seven Indians Having Swiss Bank Accounts

first_imgYash Birla is one of the seven Indians named publicly in Switzerland’s Federal Gazette as holding Swiss bank accounts and being investigated by the income-tax authorities in India. The rest include a Delhi-based businesswoman Ritika Sharma, Sneh Lata Sawhney, Sangita Sawhney, Gurjit Singh Kochar and Sayed Mohamed Masood, who is being probed for running a Ponzi scheme, referred to as ‘City Limousines scam’. Another person associated with the scam, Chaud Kauser Mohamed Masood, has also been named in the gazette.Yash Birla is the son-in-law of late realty and liquor baron Ponty Chadha, reports Livemint. As part of its efforts to root out the menace of black money, Indian authorities have been putting pressure on Swiss officials to reveal names of Indians having accounts in Swiss banks.Some details of Sayed Masood Jamadar, the mastermind behind the Ponzi scheme carried out in Mumbai through City Limouzines (India) Ltd, were earlier shared by Swiss authorities with Indian authorities. Sayed’s accounts were also frozen by the Swiss authorities on the request by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).Besides, Indian authorities have asked for more details about him and Chaud Kauser Mohamed Masood. The Swiss Federal Tax Administration has asked the seven Indians to file their appeals within 30 days before the Federal Administrative Court to avoid their details to be shared with Indian authorities under the ‘mutual assistance’ treaty on tax matters.Gurjit Singh Kochar is married into the Chadha family.    Responding to the development, finance minister Arun Jaitley said “this should serve as a “sufficient indicator to those with unaccounted wealth abroad about the action to follow.””The era of tax haven has come to an end and it’s no longer safe to keep the assets abroad illegally,” he added.The Yash Birla group said “no individual bank account in his name or under his control”.The NDA government had promised to bring back black money stashed outside the country during its election campaign last May.

The Celtics should trade the 1 pick

first_imgThe Celtics should trade the #1 pickThe ping pong balls bounced Boston’s way last night and the Celtics landed the #1 pick. Even though the conventional wisdom is that Boston will take Washington guard Markelle Fultz, but Colin thinks they should trade the pick.He doesn’t believe that adding a rookie is going to help put them in a position to legitimately compete against Cleveland next year.

He also talked Lonzo to the Lakers; if Lonzo would play for the Celtics; and how $500 shoe sales are going.Cris Carter and Nick Wright – Co-host’s of the upcoming FS1 show First Things First talk about their new show; the LaVar Ball interview; if Lonzo Ball to the Lakers is a win for the NBA; why Nick thinks the Warriors are the luckiest team; and if Gisele should have revealed that Brady had concussions last seasonJason McIntyre – Founder of The Big Lead and co-host of Speak for Yourself is in-studio to talk NBA Draft; why he believes in conspiracy theories; and why he thinks Boston will trade the #1 pick.last_img read more
