TCU creates new office to handle Title IX complaints, modifies reporting process

first_imgAlexandra Lang is a Journalism and Political Science double major from San Antonio, Texas. She has worked for TCU360 since her freshman year, and she is currently the Executive Editor of The Skiff. printTitle IX complaints will now be handled through the new Office of Institutional Equity, which has streamlined the process for filing and monitoring submissions. The announcement came in an email to the campus community from Chief Inclusion Officer Dr. Darron Turner on Sept. 3. According to the email, the creation of the office will result in “increased capacity and focus to achieve Texas Christian University’s strategic priorities of diversity, equity and inclusion.” The OIE will focus on Title IX complaints and allegations regarding discrimination, harassment, retaliation and sexual misconduct, while the ODI will continue to plan and promote a more inclusive campus. Turner also wrote that students will now be able to file Title IX complaints directly through the OIE in a streamlined process, creating a “single point of contact for tracking submissions and monitoring the process through the resolution stage.”The new director of the OIE is Sharon Fernandes Gooding. Gooding was promoted to this position after serving as TCU’s coordinator of diversity and inclusion in the ODI since August 2019, according to her LinkedIn page.The new director of the Office of Institutional Equity, Sharon Fernandes Gooding.

She will enforce policies against discrimination on campus, as required under Title IX.Vircks was originally hired by TCU in February 2018 as the deputy Title IX officer before being promoted to senior deputy Title IX officer in March 2019, according to the email.In addition, Leigh Holland is now an OIE investigator, and Dr. Cheryl Taylor is a data analyst and investigator. Chancellor Victor Boschini also sent an email on Sept. 3 announcing the changes.“[TCU is] indebted to the students and colleagues who have shared their experiences with us; we become better by acknowledging hurt and then enacting strategies that allow growth,” he wrote.Boschini encouraged students to attend the first Diversity Day Virtual Conference. The theme is “REFLECT. REIMAGINE. RECONNECT.” “[This theme] recognizes the need to reflect on our past as well as recognize the complex ways our lives intersect so that we can build a new movement focused on personal and systemic change,” Boschini said.  The conference will feature keynote speaker Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, as well as four panels discussing intersectionality, anti-racism, racial healing and social activism, according to Boschini’s email. The virtual conference will be Oct. 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Registration instructions for the event will be announced this week.  Alexandra Langhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-lang/ ReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution + posts TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Twitter ReddIt Twitter Facebook Linkedin Facebook Alexandra Langhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-lang/ The Skiff: April 8, 2021 The Brown-Lupton University Union.

Freedom of information shrinks during president’s first year

first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the restrictions that the authorities are imposing on journalists’ access to information in Salvador, where President Salvador Sánchez Cerén has just completed his first year in office.Salvador is ranked 45th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, a fall of seven places from its position in the previous year’s index. News Organisation El SalvadorAmericas News June 12, 2020 Find out more News April 11, 2020 Find out more to go further Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom Receive email alerts Related documents ley_de_acceso_a_la_informacion_publica-3.pdfPDF – 270.85 KB center_img Follow the news on El Salvador El SalvadorAmericas Help by sharing this information October 7, 2020 Find out more The president’s relations with the media have been distant and he has shown little interest in answering questions. He even displayed hostility on 15 April, when media that had just published violent crime figures for March were accused by Sánchez of participating in a “psychological terror campaign” against his government.That takes the cake in country where, according to the police, there were 481 murders in March (or an average of 16 a day), making it one of the deadliest months in a decade.And media personnel are among those falling victim to the generalized violence. Reporters Without Borders has registered three murders of journalists in Salvador since Sánchez took office on 1 June 2014. So far it has not been possible to establish whether any of these murders was directly linked to the victim’s journalistic work.Journalists and media outlets that have investigated corruption, public finances or violence have been the targets of hostile comments, accusations and pressure from government officials.They include the newspaper La Página, which was ordered by Tovías Armando Menjívar, the head of the Financial Investigation Unit in the prosecutor-general’s office, at the start of May to take down a story about former President Francisco Flores and to stop publishing any more articles on the subject on pain of prosecution. A few days later, the prosecutor denied that any attempt was being made to suppress information.When the Police Anti-Drug Division (DAN) detained Oscar Martínez of the El Faro newspaper for questioning in July 2014, they said they were “acting on orders from above” and wanted to know if he was the reporter covering organized crime for his newspaper and who his sources were. Jorge Beltrán Luna, a journalist with El Diario de Hoy, was also arrested by DAN police officers when returning from doing a report in San Ignacio in November 2014.The head of the Association of El Salvador Journalists (APES) condemned Martínez’s arrest and voiced concern about the spread of censorship.“The authorities have a responsibility towards journalists and media outlets,” said Claire San Filippo, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “They must set an example by displaying a respectful attitude towards reporters, or else they will encourage abuses against the media.”“We urge President Sánchez Cerén’s government to adopt a more open attitude towards the media and to end practices that violate the 2012 Law on Access to Public Information (LAIP).”The Declaration on Principles of Freedom of Expression issued by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) says: “Access to information held by the state is a fundamental right of every individual. States have the obligation to guarantee the full exercise of this right.”Three years after the LAIP took effect, it is clear that high-ranking officials are limiting transparency and blocking the publication of information that could be compromising or problematic for them.Many Salvadoran NGOs such as Grupo Promotor have condemned these abuses. Financial information such as the cost of state advertising or the cost of official visits is classified as confidential, with the result that the public is denied access for long periods.Paragraphs 4, 11 and 13 of Article 10 of the LAIP nonetheless state that information about state spending is part of the information that should be made accessible to the Salvadoran public.The fact that the president himself breaks the rules does not encourage senior officials to change their practices on the provision of information.Salvador is ranked 45th out of 180 countries in the press freedom index that Reporters Without Borders published in February.(Logo AFP) RSF_en Salvadorean authorities must not obstruct coronavirus coverage News June 4, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Freedom of information shrinks during president’s first year Salvadorean president’s alarming hostility towards independent medialast_img read more

Mother’s warning after Chloe’s tragic death

Shirley Kinsella holds a pendant she wears around her neck with a picture of her daughter Chloe inset.by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A LIMERICK mother has said how she is “going through hell and back” after the death of her 15-year-old daughter whose body was taken from the river Shannon six days after she went missing from home.Speaking after the inquest into her daughter Chloe’s death heard that the Junior Cert student had toxic levels of alcohol in her system,  Shirley Kinsella said that teenagers were not heeding warnings about the dangers of alcohol.The inquest at Limerick City Coroner’s Court this Wednesday heard that Chloe’s body was recovered from the river Shannon a short distance from her home at Kenyon Avenue in Kileely on October 4 last year.Shirley, the mother of seven, said her life would never be the same again and renewed her call to young people not to drink alcohol.“I’m going through hell and back again and young people are still drinking near my house. You’re just wasting your time talking to them.”“I just hope to God for their own sakes they just look after themselves. I wouldn’t like anyone to got through it. I will never be right after this I can’t believe what happened her.”She said that her daughter would have turned 16 last week and instead of organising a party, the family met at Chloe’s graveside where they released a number of balloons in her memory.Chloe’s uncle Matt Franklin said the recent searches for two young students who went missing earlier this month brought it all back for the Kinsella family.“It is very hard when you hear the helicopter hovering over your house and you know there’s someone else in trouble.”Coroner John McNamara heard evidence of how Gardaí were notified on October 4 that members of the Limerick Marine Search and Rescue had found Chloe’s body in the water near an area known as Brown’s Quay.She was subsequently identified by her 24-year-old sister Linsey who last saw her alive at their home on September 28.Pathologist Dr Vourneen Healy performed a postmortem examination where toxic levels of alcohol were found in the 15-year-old’s blood stream.Returning an open verdict in accordance with the medical evidence, Mr McNamara said he was aware of the great efforts to find Chloe with more than 200 volunteers taking part in the search.“I don’t know if she fell in accidentally or intentionally and therefore the suitable and correct outcome is an open verdict in accordance with medical evidence,” he explained.

Senior Advocates SC Mishra and Harish Salve, appearing for BSP and Dilwar respectively, submitted that the MLAs were evading service by staying out of their official residences and are learnt to be residing at a hotel in Jaisalmer. They sought for a direction to serve notice through the Speaker or the Secretariat.Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for the Speaker, opposed the maintainability of the petition and said that the Court cannot direct the service of notice through the Speaker.The division bench disposed of the appeals, with the above directions, and remitted the matter to the Single Bench without expressing anything on the merits.The single bench is slated to consider the matter on August 11.According to the BSP,  the merger is unconstitutional because the party did not merge with the Congress either at the national level or state level.The case assumes significance as the National General Secretary of BSP has issued a whip to its MLAs asking them to vote against Congress in the event of a confidence motion being moved in the Assembly. The Governor has summoned the assembly session on August 14, after showing much reluctance to the demand of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to convene the session immediately.

Vanessa Carlton Is Coming to Bay Shore

first_imgEmbed from Getty Images Grammy-nominated artist Vanessa Carlton is making Bay Shore her local stop on her national tour as she plans to take the stage March 9th at YMCA Boulton Center. She’s already been selling out venues in New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago.A lot has changed for Carlton since her hit song “A Thousand Miles” garnered her a Grammy nomination. She has moved from New York City to Nashville, married husband John McCauley (Deer Tick) and had a baby girl.Her last album Liberman, which came out in 2015, was critically acclaimed for showcasing Carlton’s continuing musical evolution. Her wistful vocals, poignant lyrics and simple instrumentation bring you intimately into her world and highlight a new side to this accomplished songwriter.Rolling Stone said that Carlton had “refined her voice as a songwriter” on Liberman, her fifth studio album, which was “turning heads” for good reason. The Boston Globe said her creation put her “in a better place, artistically.” Pitchfork agreed that the Liberman was “excellent on its own,” adding that her voice is the “key attraction on songs that register between low-key pop, rock and folk.” It noted that “a million years ago,” she had released “A Thousand Miles,” which was “the pop song that launched a generation of piano lessons.” Pitchfork applauded Liberman for being “raw, muted, refreshingly weird.”As she put it, “the whole message of the album is expressing a lot of philosophies about my life, peace, pain and happiness over the past ten years. I wanted this record to not only be very personal to me, but an expression of these ideas.”Carlton values the connection between the artist and the audience, even if it means the performer has to be at her most vulnerable on stage, because when it works, it’s worth it.This tour supports Carlton’s latest album Earlier Things Live, which just dropped in February. It honors her previous artistic work and features a compelling collection of live versions of her fans’ favorites like “A Thousand Miles” and “White Houses.” There’s also a special duet with John McCauley on the Deer Tick song “In Our Time.”Clearly, the time is right for Vanessa Carlton.She is slated to appear March 9 at YMCA Boulton Center for the Performing Arts, 37 West Main St., Bay Shore. boultoncenter.org Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York last_img read more
