Alabama resists racism

first_imgOn-the-ground Alabama organizers are continuing the fierce, fighting spirit of the Selma-to-Montgomery march. The 51st anniversary of that historic journey, made by thousands in the teeth of Klan violence and racist state terror, fell on March 6.#VetsVsHate outside Alabama Trump rally after being ejected, Feb. 28.On Feb. 28, about 40 members of Shut Down Etowah carried an empty coffin and sang outside the Etowah County Detention Center in Gadsden. They were protesting the death of Ethiopian national Teka Gulema, who was paralyzed from a bacterial infection while detained. A case of “fatal neglect,” he was released by authorities only to die two weeks later in a local hospital. As supporters marched, detainees inside could be heard banging on the prison walls. The Etowah Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility has been condemned by Detention Watch Network as one of the worst facilities in the U.S. (weldbham.com, March 1)Also on Feb. 28, at a rally of 30,000 near Huntsville, several groups disrupted racist, anti-immigrant presidential candidate Donald Trump. Protesters with fists up chanting “Black Lives Matter!” heroically marched past Trump on the podium and also interrupted his speech later. These were students from Alabama A&M University and Oakwood University, two local historically Black colleges. Veterans Challenge Islamophobia held up signs: “We stand with our Muslim brothers and sisters” and “Veterans say end hate speech.” The vets were roughly ejected as Trump exclaimed, “Isn’t this fun?”To get to the stadium, thousands of Trump followers had to walk by about 50 sign-holding and chanting protesters from women’s groups, peace groups and the Alabama Coalition For Immigrant Justice. (whnt.com, waff.com)On March 1, more than a dozen Black Lives Matter protesters repeatedly interrupted a session of the Montgomery City Council. The multinational group, composed mainly of Black women, were outraged by the death of Greg Gunn, an unarmed Black man shot by a white cop while Gunn was walking home in his own neighborhood.Karen Jones stood directly in front of Mayor Todd Strange and said, “It is a travesty that this council can go on as if nothing happened, without even acknowledging (Gunn’s) death, his murder.” Jones is a local activist who led the group of protesters. The Council abruptly adjourned its meeting.By the next day, the Montgomery County district attorney had charged the white cop, Aaron Smith, with murder, an action so unusual that it brought national headlines. In the last decade, Montgomery police officers were dismissed for planting evidence, jailing people on false charges and beating suspects. All those targeted were African-American.

TCU students embrace use of Uber

She added that whenever she recounts a night out drinking with friends, Uber is always a part of the story.Thompson said she agrees with the following statement in a recent Uber report:“Uber has made it easier for me to avoid driving home when I’ve had too much to drink.”UberMADD ReportTCU Police Department detective Robert Rangel wrote in an email that taking ride-sharing cars are better than driving intoxicated.“The alternative that’s always a great idea is a designated driver,” Rangel wrote. “A trusted family member or friend that does not drink alcohol.”But whatever students decide should be made before drinking, Rangel said.“You don’t want to depend on making sound judgments after you have intentionally compromised your judgment,” he wrote.Rangel said campus police will not deploy any increased or special enforcement during homecoming weekend in regards to alcohol incidents.“We have never experienced a statistically significant increase in alcohol-related incidents during homecoming weekend,” Rangel wrote.Rangel credits this to homecoming’s family-oriented environment and returning alumni.“The influx of alumnus that are generally more mature and less likely to engage in excessive alcohol consumption like they may have in their younger years as students,” he wrote.Now, because of ride-sharing cars, students have more options.“I’m not afraid to voice my opinion,” Thompson said. “Sometimes it just takes you saying no that’s not okay for someone to change their mind and say, ‘fine, I’ll pay for my Uber.’”[<a href=”//storify.com/kyliealexandrra/student-reactions-to-ride-sharing-apps” target=”_blank”>View the story “Student reactions to ride-sharing apps” on Storify</a>] Previous articleMen’s golf closes out play in New MexicoNext articleTCU launches Fresh Check Day’s first national program Kylie Walker RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR JMBLYA breaks record at Dallas festival Kylie Walker is a junior Journalism major from Dallas, Texas.

Pasadena Rotary Club Awards $38,500 in Grants to Non-Profits City-Wide

first_imgGiving Back Pasadena Rotary Club Awards $38,500 in Grants to Non-Profits City-Wide From BRANDON VILLALOVOS Published on Monday, April 25, 2016 | 1:37 pm 3 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it The Pasadena Rotary Club will be hosting the 2016 Community Grants Award Luncheon on April 27 to award 21 Pasadena non-profit organizations with $38,500 in grants.According to the Pasadena Rotary Club, 28 organizations applied for grants this year, but the list was winnowed down to the following organizations that focus on serving Veterans and at risk and/or developmentally disabled children under 18 years of age.The Pasadena Rotary Club was able to award the funds from investment income generated by the foundation.“It makes a huge impact and it’s the difference between a dividing line when you can keep something going and when you can’t,” explained The Light Bringer Project Managing Director, Patricia Hurley, on the impact of the grant received.The organizations include: American Legion Post 13, Young and Healthy, Light Bringer Project, Learning Works Charter School, A Noise Within, Foothill Family Services, L.A. Children’s Chorus, Planned Parenthood, Convalescent Aid Society, Boys and Girls Club, Pacific Clinics, Door of Hope, Professional Child Development Associates, Hathaway Sycamores, College Access Plan, Union Station, Ability First, Outward Bound Adventure, Hillsides, Ronald McDonald House, and PCC Foundation.“Our local foundations are important to us and we are very happy that the Rotary is providing a grant to help us continue our youth advisement program,” said Ken Preston of Outward Bound Adventures, whose organization in its fifth decade of operation.It is no secret that even a little bit of supply money adds critical value in order to keep programs and services afloat. The impact is felt city wide, in which this year’s efforts aim to keep children and veterans a priority in the community extends much further than residents think.The common denominator in this equation is to allow organizations to not only survive, but to continue to thrive and enrich community involvement for years to come.“This grant definitely underscores the value of what services we provide for veteran students at Pasadena City College,” said PCC Foundation Executive Director, Bobbi Abram.Individual representatives from the organizations will be present to accept their grants in addition to attendees being provided with programs that further detail the awards. Attendance is open to the public and will consist of a lunch, meeting and presentation beginning at 12 p.m. at the University Club of Pasadena, 175 N. Oakland Ave. Tickets cost $31.00.For more information, visit www.pasadenarotary.com or call (626) 440-0908. Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Letterkenny General Hospital bucks that trend however, with a fall of 77%.The issue of hospital overcrowding has been a contentious one for many years, with the INMO publishing a daily report on the number of patients on trollies in hospitals, either in the Emergency Department or on wards.In November 2007, the INMO logged 6 patients on trollies in 2007, 25 in 2008 and 2009, 26 in 2010 and rose sharply to 81 in 2011.In 2012, the figure fell to 68, but last year, 2013 saw a massive increase to 209.Last month, that figure had fallen to 47.The 2013 rise could be partly attributed to the July flooding which had a severe impact on hospital services, and saw the Emergency Department located in temporary pre-fabs.Liam Doran of the INMO says this is a presing issue nationally, and he wants to see government action to address it……Audio Playerhttp://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/doranovercrowding.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.
