first_imgEDMONTON – Alberta has halted construction of a medical superlab, saying it wants to allow the just-elected United Conservative government time to review the project.An Alberta infrastructure representative says in an email that the “pause” is intended to minimize costs incurred before the new government has the opportunity to conduct a review.The $590 million lab near the University of Alberta’s south campus was announced by the NDP government in 2016, and former health minister Sarah Hoffman noted last month that site preparation was underway.But Premier-designate Jason Kenney has called the project unnecessary and promised to scrap it if elected.The lab was intended to bring existing laboratories and staff under one roof to process the more than 30 million tests conducted in the province every year.Kenney has said the project would do nothing to improve patient services, and that a UCP government would also put the NDP’s plans for a lab-testing superagency on hold while consulting on the best way to deliver lab services.last_img read more

first_imgKathleen MartensAPTN NewsFirst Nations actor Duane Howard apologized Tuesday for what he calls “consensual sex” with a 16-year-old girl in 1993.“I want to clarify I did not rape Lauraleigh (Paul),” Howard said in a telephone interview with APTN News. Howard was 30-years-old at the time.“I wanted to apologize for the one-night stand; we had casual sex.”Howard can be heard taking several deep breaths over the phone.“I did not know she was 16,” he added.When Howard had his sexual encounter with Paul in 1993 the age of consent in Canada was 14. The law was raised to 16 in 2008.The telephone interview was conducted with Howard’s publicist, Holly Carinci, listening on the line.Howard apologized for “the incident” in a video posted to Facebook earlier Tuesday. The nearly five-minute video has since been removed.Howard said he “apologized for this encounter” to Paul in person in 2016, and she accepted his apology.“Since then we have had what I thought was a close friendship,” he said, noting he has private  messages to this effect.He said he has been reeling since she characterized what happened as an alleged crime on her Facebook page on Oct. 10, being unable to sleep more than a few hours a night and feeling quite emotional.(Lauraleigh Paul in an undated Facebook photo.)Calling it “an ugliness I no longer wished to be burdened with,” Paul described a sexual assault in a post on her Facebook page Oct. 10.The Vancouver-based entrepreneur wrote:“It was a violent rape. He slithered into the room, I say slithered because he literally crawled across the floor to get to me. I couldn’t breathe as he had my mouth covered and pushed into my face with his hand. I can remember how painful it was.“My neck hurt because of the way he was keeping me quiet. His scaly skin against mine. My vagina was tearing, and it stung and burned, made me cry for days.”Read More: The Reverant actor posts apology to Vancouver woman over ‘incident’Her post remains up and has been shared and commented on hundreds of times.“They had quite a close friendship,” noted Carinci. “This has been very shocking and it’s one of the reasons he’s been so silent.“Duane has been completely bowled over and has received nothing but hatred from the community.”Carinci asked that, for Howard’s own safety, APTN not report his whereabouts.She clarified that his video apology on Facebook was written by two women from his community on Vancouver Island.“His apology – to be clear – was for what he thought was wrong by having albeit consensual sex with a teenager way back then,” Carinci said.Howard said he took the video down on Facebook after a few hours when it seemed to be doing more harm than good.“I felt that it was just making matters worse. Everybody was angry…everybody felt that I wasn’t being remorseful.”He confirmed he looked tired in the video, and had been feeling lots of “ups and downs.”He said only “about six people” have called or messaged him while he goes through this difficult experience.“What I’m really upset about is that none of my brothers from the community … try to support me.”kmartens@aptn.ca@katmartelast_img read more

first_imgBarabanki (UP): BSP chief Mayawati Wednesday accused the BJP of using the martyrdom of jawans for election purposes and regretted that the country’s borders are still not totally secure. She also alleged that like the previous Congress government, the BJP dispensation too is using the CBI, ED and the Income Tax department against its political opponents for electoral gains. “Under such circumstance, the electorate have to see to it that neither the BJP nor the Congress… comes to power at the centre,” the BSP chief said at an election meeting here. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra Singh Claiming that the BJP will be voted out of power this time because of its pro-RSS, capitalist, communal and casteist policies, Mayawati said no amount of “drama” or ‘jumlebazi’ (rhetoric) will help the party. “The borders of the country are not totally secure under the BJP government as a result of which terror attacks are taking place and several jawans are being martyred. It is most unfortunate that they are anyhow using this for election purposes,” the BSP supremo said.

Warning people that her political opponents have “adopted every trick” to win the elections, Mayawati said people should not fall for tall election promises and allurements. “During the last Lok Sabha election, the prime minister (Narendra Modi) had the country dream of ‘achche din’ and made promises even one-fourth of which were not fulfilled. This is because most of their time was devoted to saving their capitalists friends and making them richer,” she claimed. The BSP president also accused the Congress of ignoring the contributions of B R Ambedkar and said like the implementation of the Mandal Commission report, Bharat Ratna was awarded to the architect of the Constitution only when V P Singh was the prime minister. “When V P Singh sought our support for his government, we put forth two conditions — Bharat Ratna for Ambedkar and implementation of Mandal Commission report, which he accepted. But the BJP, which was giving outside support, did not like this and withdrew,” she said.last_img read more

The H7N9 strain of avian influenza, first detected in China four years ago, has experienced resurgence since December 2016, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Organisation for Animal health (OIE) have reported. The virus can be lethal to both humans and poultry. “To protect human health and people’s livelihoods, it is essential to tackle the disease at its source in poultry: efforts need to target eliminating H7N9 from affected farms and markets,” said Vincent Martin, FAO’s Representative in China. The H7N9 strain is considered endemic in eastern and south-eastern China, and as of early March, has been estimated to be linked to more human cases of avian influenza than all other strains of avian influenza combined.China’s Ministry of Agriculture has ordered animal husbandry, veterinary and public health officers, as well as industry and commerce authorities to take closely coordinated and timely action to control the spread of the virus. Neighbouring countries are at high risk as are all that have poultry trade connections with China. “Targeted surveillance to detect the disease and clean infected farms and live bird markets, intervening at critical points along the poultry value chain – from farm to table – is required. There should be incentives for everybody involved in poultry production and marketing to enforce disease control.” Surveillance of the virus had proven difficult in the past, as the virus caused mild or no illnesses in the poultry and infected chickens displayed few or no symptoms. However new evidence from China’s Guangdong Province shows the emergence of a strain which can lead to high mortality for birds within 48 hours of infection, enabling quicker detection but also potentially raising the risk of severe animal and economic losses for the poultry industry. Matthew Stone, Deputy Director General of the OIE said, “China has been quick to notify international organizations about the virus’ recent change from low to high pathogenicity in poultry. Given the continuous risk of virus change, inherent to all influenza viruses, timely sharing of surveillance results and sequence information with the international community is crucial for pandemic preparedness.” While more than 1,200 human cases of H7N9 have been reported since 2013, there is no danger of catching the disease by eating chicken. As in previous waves, most patients infected reported visiting live bird markets or had come into contact with infected birds. “We need to understand the drivers of this disease in devising appropriate control and preventive strategies”, said Dr. Juan Lubroth, FAO Chief Veterinary Officer. “These must be tailored to meet the expectations of all stakeholders involved, such as farmers, traders, transporters, market operators, government and international agencies and the consumer.” read more

“Food rations [are] cut in many of the neighbouring countries,” said Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, adding that vulnerable groups, including women, who have already been exposed to violence cannot be provided with the necessary support.Since 2015, over 400,000 refugees and asylum seekers have fled the small central African landlocked nation, escaping human rights abuses, political uncertainty, and deteriorating humanitarian situation.Over 60 per cent of that number have fled to Tanzania (254,000 refugees) and several thousands to Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Uganda. Furthermore, with the volatile situation persisting, there are fears that the total number of refugees could rise to 450,000 by the end of 2018. Humanitarian efforts to assist those in need, however, also remain constrained due to severe lack of funding.The $391 million Burundi Regional Refugee Response Plan includes targeted response in those four countries along with the resources needed in each context.Fully funded, some 430,000 vulnerable persons will benefit from the Plan through 2018.The common thread is ensuring that the majority of the displaced living in refugee camps (about 85 per cent), are provided with food, shelter and education as well as protection from sexual and gender based violence.“For the moment, the conditions are still fragile, so support to host countries continues to be a priority that I hope the world will not forget,” added Mr. Grandi.Funds will also go towards strengthening social services, livelihood opportunities, protection and restoration environment as well as providing documentation and training for government officials on refugee status determination.UNHCR ‘not encouraging’ refugee returns at this timeAccording to Catherine Wiesner, the Regional Coordinator for the Burundi situation at the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), over the last few years, some Burundian refugees have decided to return home, and are seeking to re-establish their lives in their communities.They, however, are facing considerable economic pressures and food insecurity.“At this stage, UNHCR and partners are not promoting or encouraging refugee returns to Burundi,” said the UNHCR official, noting that the agency is working with the relevant Governments to assist those who indicate they have made a free and informed choice to return voluntarily, to do so in safety and dignity.“We are also reiterating our appeal to Burundi’s neighbours to continue to uphold their international responsibilities and commitments to receive asylum-seekers at their borders and offer protection to those who need it,” she added.An outbreak of violence in Burundi in April 2015 and, later, a political crisis along with deterioration in security and humanitarian environment has pushed the country deeper into crisis and continues fuel the exodus of its populations, some of whom have been displaced as far as to South Africa and Kenya. read more

first_imgEPC-UK, a market leader in the manufacture, storage and distribution of commercial explosives, will be “bringing the blast to life” at this year’s Hillhead, thanks to the latest Augmented Reality technology. A combination of Virtual Reality and the real world, Augmented Reality (AR) takes the form of live video imagery, which is enhanced with computer generated graphics, immersing the user in a specific environment – for example in a quarry whilst a blast is being conducted. The state-of-the-art technology also adds labels, captions and other helpful overlays to the user’s view, making it an ideal teaching tool.“Augmented Reality is a way of placing a person in a situation they would not normally be able to experience. By bringing it to Hillhead, we hope to engage visitors within the quarrying environment and get a true feel for what we do,” explains Ben Williams, Managing Director of EPC-UK.“However, AR is not just for entertainment. It has a number of practical applications, the most important of which is training. Within our industry it is extremely difficult to realistically recreate certain scenarios, from both an economical and safety standpoint. However, AR is changing this. It is enabling us to take learning out of the classroom and into the quarry – virtually.“There are limitations, but AR will allow students to learn at their own pace, giving them the ability to rewind training videos to help aid the retention of information,” adds Williams. Alongside the AR demonstrations, EPC-UK will also be showcasing its innovative EPC-Metrics service. Launched last year, the service, developed in partnership with Datum Monitoring Services, aims to facilitate the immediate access of event data, via state-of-the-art fixed monitoring stations, removing the need to travel to and from a monitoring location, and the time-consuming manual download of results in the field.The advanced monitoring stations incorporate a GSM modem for wireless data transmission, together with the option for solar power, enabling the service to be used even in the most remote of locations. “We have been successfully providing traditional blast monitoring services for a while, but EPC-Metrics takes this offering to another level,” continues Williams. “A fixed monitoring location provides a consistent point of reference for reliable results, whilst the real-time transmission of data saves our customers both time and resources as they no longer have to produce this information on site.“The service offers users a more efficient way of monitoring blast vibration and air over-pressure, aiding the tracking of compliance and providing a greater understanding of site characteristics.”EPC-UK will also be announcing a series of new training programmes, from ‘Environmental Management in Blasting’ and ‘Geology for Blasting’ to ‘Managing the Blast Site’ and ‘Explosives Legislations for Senior Managers’.  These industry leading courses have been specifically designed for the industry, encouraging continuous professional development within the sector and attracting new talent.“Our industry is constantly evolving and, as such, so are we.  We have already moved away from playing a purely manufacturing role to becoming a full-service provider and our investment in innovative technology, such as AR, is a demonstration of this.“We are excited to be showcasing this technology at the industry’s foremost event and look forward to bringing the blast to life for our visitors,” concludes Williams.last_img read more

first_imgOregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into Friday night’s wrong way driver-involved fatal traffic crash in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 84 east of Corbett that resulted in the death of a woman and serious injuries to a man. The victim’s name is released in this update.According to Trooper Ted Moisan, on July 6, 2012 at approximately 11:55 p.m. a 2005 Nissan Frontier pickup driven by JAMES F. SCHNEIDER, age 53, from White Salmon, Washington, was eastbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 23 following another vehicle in the left lane when the vehicle ahead of the pickup swerved left to avoid a wrong way driver. The pickup collided head-on with a 2007 Kia Rio that was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes.The Kia’s driver, ERIKA K. MYERS, age 36, from southeast Portland, was pronounced deceased at the scene. She was wearing safety restraints and the car’s airbags deployed.SCHNEIDER was transported by ambulance to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center with serious injuries. He was wearing safety restraints and the pickup’s airbags deployed.Just prior to the crash occurring, at least one driving complaint was received about a wrong way driver in that area.OSP troopers from the Portland Area Command office are continuing the investigation into the cause of the crash. Moisan is the lead investigator.OSP was assisted at the scene by Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, Multnomah County Fire District 14, Multnomah County medical examiner, and ODOT.

first_imgDistrict 6 firefighters noticed that some people they served had no way to get to or from the hospital after an emergency, such as a car crash. So they came up with a solution: give those people a prepaid taxi ride to the hospital or other location inside the district’s jurisdiction, which covers Salmon Creek, Felida and Hazel Dell.“All we are is big problem solvers,” said Firefighter Bill Dunlap, who spearheaded the project. Dunlap said that many people in the lower-income parts of the district don’t own cars and can’t afford a taxi ride. So, when someone gets injured, sometimes family members can’t get to the hospital in a timely manner.Yet it’s important for family members to be at the hospital because they can answer medical questions if a patient is incapacitated, said Dr. Lynn Wittwer, Clark County’s Medical Program Director, who helped shape the token program. The service will start out slowly and cautiously, he said.“It’s an experiment, basically,” Wittwer said. “If it catches on, we’ll probably see more of it.”With one token, a Vancouver Cab Co. taxi takes someone to Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center or picks them up from there. Two tokens are used for PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, which is farther from District 6.last_img read more

first_imgInsurance organisation Aviva has introduced a carers policy and enhanced its bereavement leave benefit for its 16,000 UK-based employees.The carers policy, which became effective on 2 October 2017, enables full-time employees who have caring responsibilities to take up to 35 hours of paid leave per holiday year for planned events, such as to attend hospital appointments. The policy also allows full-time working carers to take up to 35 hours of paid leave for emergencies per holiday year. The amount of paid leave available for part-time employees who are carers is pro-rated.In addition, the new carers policy extends to parental leave arrangements to carers, meaning that employees who have caring commitments can request up to four weeks of unpaid leave per year, subject to a maximum 18-week cap. Aviva’s working carers will also be able to request adjustments to their working patterns if needed, for example moving to part-time hours.Alongside the introduction of the new carers policy, Aviva has increased its bereavement leave, from 35 hours to 70 hours.The new policy follows a pilot that was undertaken at the organisation’s Bristol site in November 2016. This included 100 employees taking part in the We Care initiative, which provided a support network for employees to share their experiences, as well as the challenges, of juggling work and care commitments. The pilot further enabled Aviva to collect feedback on the issues that its working carers faced.The carers policy has been launched as part of Aviva’s wider employee wellbeing programme, Wellbeing@Aviva. The programme aims to provide employees with a range of products, policies and advice to help support staff’s overall wellbeing.Andy Briggs (pictured), chief executive officer, UK insurance and global life and health at Aviva, said: “Nearly one in eight UK [employees] currently combine working and caring commitments. Dealing with these dual responsibilities can be challenging and often unpredictable.“Through the pilot in our Bristol office, we’ve recognised that a significant number of our employees have caring duties. We’ve also carried out independent research which revealed 83% of UK carers believe they should be treated by employers in the same way as parents; for example, having the right to take up to 18 weeks unpaid leave. Knowing this, we are very pleased to introduce this policy to give further support to all of our UK [employees].“Changing demographics and an ageing population mean that three in five people in the UK will end up caring for someone at some point of their lives. So we’re taking this step now, to support our [employees] and the people they care about.”last_img read more

first_img Facebook The Australian band’s lead singer lets us in on why the annual summer festival has been so important during its 20-year runRenée FabianGRAMMYs Jun 22, 2018 – 11:52 am Australian band Tonight Alive formed down under in Australia in 2008. Comprised of vocalist Jenna McDougall, guitarist Jake Hardy, bassist Cameron Adler, and drummer Matt Best, the band has gifted the alt-rock community with four full-length studio albums so far, including their latest January 2018 LP, Underworld.As Warped Tour veterans, our host, Ryan J. Downey, caught up with the band’s lead singer McDougall at the first day of this year’s festivities in Pomona, Calif., on June 21, where she dished on the “evolution” of performing at the revered summer festival, the advice she would share with her younger self and why the Warped Tour community has been so important during its 20-year run.So you have obviously done the Warped Tour before. Is it bittersweet knowing this is the last time?A little bit. I think it’s going to become a little bit more painful as we get into it, recreating that bond and feeling it again. It’s been a pretty life-changing tour for us. This is our fourth time.I was going to ask you if you could sum up Warped Tour in one word, and I suppose life-changing, it’s hyphenated, that counts.I feel like evolution. It just gives you a chance to embody what you want to embody and be who you want to be. You get to put that in practice every single day and really manifest your highest devotion to yourself, highest devotion to your band. I love it.What was your impression of Warped Tour growing up, obviously not growing up in America. Was it just something you always inspired to like, “I want to be on that someday, I want to go to that someday”?We did, absolutely. We grew up in Australia, and its so far removed from everything. Every band we loved was American and all we wanted to do was become an international touring band.  I remember being 14 and watching YouTube videos of Rufio. They were one of our favorite bands growing up and we got to tour with them in the following years. … We were really young when we heard about Warped and we never got to be fans of the festival. We are fans of the festival, but we see it from a different perspective. We see it from the inside out or outside in.This is your fourth Warped Tour. What do you wish that you would have known the first time that you know now, the fourth time, that makes your life easier out here?Maybe not even totally related, but just in general, what I wish I knew when I was younger is that I don’t have to try. You just be. Just be who you are and you emit a frequency, you put out a signature and people will pick up on it or they won’t. And that’s OK. It’s not a reflection of your worthiness or your ability to be interesting or your skills or anything like that. It’s not a reflection of that. It’s just a reflection of whether you resonate with people. I think I always tried to perfect and control how people would receive me or our band. And now it’s just amazing we get to come back this many times. I’m just happy to be here and play the music we know people love now. We don’t have to project anything. So I think that comes with age as well as experience.I want to ask you, we’re asking everybody that’s here, if you could say anything to Kevin [Lyman] and those who run Warped Tour, given it’s the last time, a thank you or anything like that.Everything I could say, they know. This has been a life-changing experience for me. It’s given me a chance to cultivate a sense of sense, a sense of identity, a sense of connecting with people and figuring out what matters to me. I love the fact that it’s six weeks long. I’m sure in the past it has been longer, but the fact that you get to do this everyday, it really challenges you and tests you. It wants you to know if this is important enough. And it is. And it creates passion and it feeds your fire and that’s the opportunity that they put in front of us as artists but also that they put in front of kids as well, to come to a place where that energy of being an outcast and a rebel and an anti-conformist is amplified, and the safety. There’s a bubble that surrounds us and it pulls us all in. I just feel for the people that live in one city and only get to see this once a year, and we get to do it 36 times a year.It’s a place where all of us outsiders can come together and belong somewhere.One-hundred percent. I don’t want that to go away. But we’ll find other places.People will always find community in music, and music like Tonight Alive.

first_imgIce fog is made up of tiny ice crystals that form when it’s at least -30 degrees Fahrenheit. In urban areas, the crystals often form around pollution particles from vehicle emissions or wood smoke. (Photo by Joseph Hall)Anchorage residents have been waking up to fog most days recently. But do the cold temperatures that go along with it make it technically “ice fog”?To answer that question, we spoke with Brian Brettschneider, a climatologist in Anchorage who closely tracks Alaska climate data and trends. Alaska’s Energy Desk is checking in with him regularly as part of the segment, Ask-A -limatologist.He told Energy Desk editor Annie Feidt you can’t have ice fog unless it’s at least 30 below zero.Listen NowInterview Transcript:Brian: Even though it’s been in the single digits and even close to zero the last few days in Anchorage, it’s actually regular fog. It’s no different than a fog that would happen in July or August, it’s just colder outside. The fog particles themselves are actually little microscopic liquid water droplets.Annie: How is that different than an ice fog?Brian: With ice fog, instead of liquid water droplets, the fog particles are actually ice crystals. That doesn’t happen until you’re at a minimum of -30 degrees Fahrenheit. In rural areas you wouldn’t see it until it’s at least -40 or -45 Fahrenheit.Annie: Is it something you can just see is different?Brian: No. You can’t actually see what the fog is made out of. Even though you see fog and have reduced visibility, you’re not actually seeing the water droplets. It can condense out into mist or even ice crystals or snowflakes. But you can’t see the particles, so you wouldn’t know by looking whether it’s freezing fog or ice fog, you would need to look at the thermometer.Annie: Does ice fog act differently in how it forms or how it dissipates?Brian: It’s a very, very cold phenomenon. The nucleus of the fog particles is typically pollution- automobile exhaust or even smoke particles from fire places. When it gets cold enough, there becomes a point where it’s so cold that it’s almost impossible not to have ice fog. I think if it’s -60 or -70, no matter where you are, possibly with the exception of Antarctica, you’re going to get ice fog, whether the atmospheric conditions are conducive for fog or not, it’s just so cold that any little particle in the atmosphere is going to start collecting ice crystals on it.last_img read more

first_img Share /APPresident Donald Trump pauses while speaking during a meeting with Chilean president Sebastian Pinera in the White House, Friday, Sept. 28, 2018.President Donald Trump directed the FBI Friday to launch a supplemental investigation into his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at the request of the Senate Judiciary Committee.Trump said in a statement that the updated investigation, which comes in response to sexual misconduct allegations, “must be limited in scope” and “completed in less than one week.” The decision marks a reversal for the administration, which had argued that Kavanaugh had already been vetted.Kavanaugh has adamantly denied the allegations. In a statement released by the White House, he said that he “will continue to cooperate” after senators asked Trump to open a supplemental background investigation.Kavanaugh said he’s been interviewed by the FBI during his confirmation process and conducted “background” calls with the Senate. He added he answered questions under oath Thursday “about every topic the Senators and their counsel asked me.”“I’ve done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate,” the judge noted.Earlier on Friday and after a dramatic flurry of last-minute negotiations, Kavanaugh had cleared a key procedural hurdle.Under pressure from moderate members, Republican leaders said they would allow the new probe for up to one week, slowing their rush to confirm Kavanaugh shortly after the new high court term opens on Monday.The talks were forced by Sen. Jeff Flake, a moderate Republican who surprised colleagues by announcing his support for Kavanaugh early Friday only to call for further investigation a few hours later.Friday’s developments unfolded a day after Kavanaugh and an accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, testified in an emotional, hours-long hearing that was televised nationwide. Kavanaugh angrily denied the allegation that he assaulted Ford while they were both in high school, but she said she was “100 percent” certain he was her attacker.Flake, a key moderate Republican, was at the center of Friday’s drama and uncertainty. In the morning, he announced that he would support Kavanaugh’s nomination. Shortly after, he was confronted in an elevator by two women who, through tears, implored him to change his mind. The stunning confrontation was captured by television cameras.After huddling privately with his colleagues, Flake announced he would vote to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination to the full Senate only if the FBI were to investigate the allegations against the judge. Democrats have been calling for such an probe, though Republicans and the White House have insisted it’s unnecessary.The committee vote was 11-10 along party lines.Andrew Harnik/APSen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., right, speaks with Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., third from right, and Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., second from right, at the conclusion of a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, Friday, Sept. 28, 2018, after Flake calls for an FBI investigation into the allegations brought forward against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The committee voted along party lines to send the Kavanaugh nomination to the full Senate for a vote. Also pictured is Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., left.Flake said that after discussing the matter with fellow senators, he felt it “would be proper to delay the floor vote for up to but not more than one week.”Attention quickly turned to a handful of undecided senators. West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin said he supported Flake’s call to push off a full Senate vote until the FBI investigates Ford’s allegation. He said the probe should happen “so that our country can have confidence in the outcome of this vote.”It was unclear if Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska would do the same.With a 51-49 majority, Senate Republicans have little margin for error on a final vote, especially given the fact that several Democrats facing tough re-election prospects this fall announced their opposition to Kavanaugh on Friday. Sens. Bill Nelson of Florida, Joe Donnelly of Indiana and Jon Tester of Montana all said they would vote no.During Thursday’s hearing, Democrats repeatedly peppered Kavanaugh with questions about whether he would support an FBI investigation. He demurred, saying he would back whatever the committee decided to do.The FBI conducts background checks for federal nominees, but the agency does not make judgments on the credibility or significance of allegations. It compiles information about the nominee’s past and provides its findings to the White House, which passes them along to the committee.Republicans say reopening the FBI investigation is unnecessary because committee members have had the opportunity to question both Kavanaugh and Ford and other potential witnesses have submitted sworn statements.If the FBI does reopen the background investigation, agents could interview accusers and witnesses and gather additional evidence or details that could help corroborate or disprove the allegations.Democrats have been particularly focused on getting more information from Mark Judge, a high school friend of Kavanaugh who Ford said was also in the room during her alleged assault. In her gripping testimony, Ford said Kavanaugh and Judge’s laughter during the incident has stuck with her nearly four decades later.Judge has said he does not recall any such incident. In a new letter to the Senate panel, he said he would cooperate with any law enforcement agency assigned to investigate “confidentially.”Flake, a 55-year-old Arizonan, has made himself a central character in the drama. As a retiring Republican, with no public plans to face GOP voters soon, Flake has emerged this year as a vocal and biting Trump critic and an advocate for bipartisan cooperation in Washington, even has he largely votes with his party.Flake’s post on the committee has given him another platform. In recent weeks, he’s acted as a committee liaison to the Democrats and moderates Republicans urging a slower process.Last weekend, he pushed the committee to give Ford more time to decide whether to testify. Democrats have been eyeing him as a possible “no” vote, leaving many surprised to see him announce Friday morning that he backed the judge. He made clear hours later his vote wasn’t yet secure.last_img read more

first_imgBy RUTH SERVEN SMITH, The Daily Progress of Charlottesville undefinedCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — In 1969, James R. Roebuck arrived at a University of Virginia that was still considered a gentleman’s university and was reluctantly enrolling Black graduate and undergraduate students.Roebuck enrolled in UVa’s graduate philosophy program and became the Student Council’s first African-American president. He discussed his efforts to force university administrators to support Black students and enroll women at a UVa symposium on March 22.UVa’s first African-American student president Dr. James R. Roebuck stands for a portrait at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Va., on Friday, March 22, 2019. (Andrew Shurtleff/The Daily Progress via AP)“The thing that was most important to me was making an institution that would provide equal opportunity to all students; making sure Black students could come here, as well as welcoming women,” he said at the event, which was intended to support equity at UVa and diverse student leadership.Roebuck has served as a Pennsylvania state representative from Philadelphia since 1985. His experiences as an undergrad at Virginia Union University and then at UVa provided an early test of his political skills, as well as a vision of how student leadership could advance a slate of diverse demands.In 1969, he and fellow students issued a list of demands to then-President Edgar Shannon, demanding the school raise enrollment of Black students to 20 percent, enroll women and stop direct and indirect support of the war in Vietnam. The effort was featured in UVa professor Claudrena Harold’s 2016 short film “We Demand,” which was played at last Friday’s event.In 1970, the student council passed a resolution to endorse similar demands. That year, UVa became coeducational.“As the first African-American Student Council president, I’m sure you faced quite a few challenges in that role,” said Alex Cintron, the outgoing student council president and its first Latinx president. “I just want to know, what were the experiences like?”“I have always said, what is important to me is not being the first African-American whatever, but what is important is getting to the second and the third African-American elected president,” Roebuck responded. “I understand it took 20 years to elect a second African-American president to the student council at UVa, and that concerns me.”Roebuck said he and his fellow Black students formed a cohort of support and depended on local families, churches and organizations for a social group. He was also comfortable with pushing for change after years of advocacy for integrated movie theaters and the election of African-American officials in Richmond.However, recent events in Virginia, Roebuck said, mentioning Attorney General Mark Herring and Gov. Ralph Northam’s admissions that they had both worn Blackface, make him worry that progress remains slow.“I’m dismayed that these pictures are coming up and that people thought they were appropriate to publish in their yearbook,” he said. “I can’t imagine that you would want to put yourself in Blackface next to a Klansman in your yearbook, which represents your academic achievement.”Still, though, Roebuck said he’s proud of his peers’ efforts that moved UVa toward offering education to all Virginians, and he encouraged current students to continue pushing for change and to help create social networks that will make minority students feel welcome.“UVa offers great opportunities for students, but sometimes it’s an effort for students to be aware of that and feel they will have a comfortable, positive four-year experience,” he said.___Information from: The Daily Progress, http://www.dailyprogress.comlast_img read more
