Students raised several hundred dollars by selling baked goods and ice cream shakes in support of groups as diverse as Oxfam America, Habitat for Humanity, Heal the Bay, and Farm Sanctuary, among others. They also collected bags of used clothing for Homeboy Industries of Los Angeles.According to theology teacher Christine Knudsen, the fair has grown each year since its introduction four years ago as a summer school class project. Students initially read about justice issues in class and then research various organizations that contribute to positive changes both locally and around the world. “The point is for students to become informed about an issue or a cause, and then do something positive and concrete to support it,” the instructor explained.Along with raising funds, students created awareness at the event for nearly 30 organizations. Some students brought laptops so that others could sign online petitions, while other students encouraged classmates to phone local representatives about social justice issues.About Immaculate HeartFounded in 1906, Immaculate Heart educates young women in grades sixth through 12th from its central location in the Los Feliz foothills near Griffith Park in Hollywood.

The assembly wants to create up to 150,000 jobs and raise the gross domesticproduct of Wales by up to 10 per cent within 15 years. It believes that raisingskill levels is the answer. But CBI Wales has criticised the plans for failing to involve employers.Amanda Wilkinson, senior policy adviser for CBI Wales, said, “One of theaims of the draft plan is to raise GDP.

Indo-Pacific Endeavour ships wrap up final port visits

first_img View post tag: IPE18 View post tag: HMAS Toowoomba View post tag: Royal Australian Navy View post tag: HMAS Adelaide Ships deployed as part of the Royal Australian Navy’s Indo-Pacific Endeavour tour have concluded their final port visits before returning home later this week.HMA Ships Adelaide and Toowoomba visited the Solomon Islands’ capital Honiara, while HMAS Success visited Rabaul in Papua New Guinea, working with Pacific Island partners in support of regional prosperity and security.ADF personnel worked alongside partner security forces and local communities to conduct women in leadership and medical workshops, as well as carrying out repair and maintenance work to local schools, health and community facilities, and historic sites.The crews also conducted commemoration services for the loss of HMAS AE1, Australia’s first submarine, which sank off the coast of Rabaul in 1914, and the sinking of HMAS Canberra during the WWII Pacific campaign.IPE Joint Task Group Commander, Captain Jim Hutton, said the visits reinforced our regional security partnerships.“We were honored by the welcome we received in both countries,” Captain Hutton said.“Over the last few days, we have forged stronger people-to-people links and joint capacities in both countries that can be utilized in times of crisis.“At the end of the day we are all committed to supporting regional security, and IPE has enhanced our ability to operate more seamlessly with our Pacific partners.”In the Solomon Islands, the ADF focussed on maritime security training with the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) Maritime Division.The IPE Joint Task Group was also able to assist the RSIPF conduct a short notice medical evacuation of four people, including a teenager who had been critically injured in a remote part of the country.“We were able to support the RSIPF’s request for assistance by utilizing two of the ADF’s embarked MRH-90 helicopters to send five police officers and medical teams to Bellona Island to retrieve the wounded individuals back to Honiara for emergency treatment,” Captain Hutton said.“This highlights not only the capability of the ADF to work with partners to rapidly plan and conduct joint force operations in a complex security environment, but also our enduring commitment to our friends and neighbors in the region.”These port visits follow successful capacity building and community engagement activities conducted during visits to Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa in Phase One of IPE in June.The IPE Joint Task Group will return to Australia later this week.

Lessons on studying security

first_img <a href=”” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a> On Tuesday, Cass Sunstein, a member of a five-person advisory panel created by President Obama to make a sweeping review of U.S. surveillance activities, discussed the group’s efforts and the 46 recommendations it released last month, including major reforms to the way the intelligence community does business.“We did have a shared, unanimous belief,” Sunstein told a crowd at Harvard Law School, “that reforms are highly desirable.”Sunstein, former administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, examined some of the committee’s key recommendations, top among them the suggestion that compiling telephone metadata — information about whom a person called and when — be taken out of the hands of government and placed with either phone companies or a new, private entity.“Our recommendation is not that the phone companies should all of a sudden start storing the metadata. … They already have it. They store it.”The committee took the position, explained Sunstein, that the risk associated with private maintenance of the data is better than the risk of a government compiling communications information and possibly using it to “entrench itself or to punish people.”Sunstein, Harvard’s Robert Walmsley University Professor, said that while the risks from the government holding such data is small in the current environment, over the course of time it might not be “small enough to be comfortable.”“Our tradition is [to be] particularly nervous about state action that threatens privacy or politics, and that is probably a good tradition to be able to be part of,” he said.When it comes to listening in on the heads of other countries “we are in tension with,”  Sunstein said the group recommended that people outside the intelligence community be involved in the process to help manage and gauge the risks of such work. Members of the intelligence community should be in the room, said Sunstein, but so should other high-ranking government officials. “A wide assortment of people with different concerns should be there.”Another recommendation countered the “need to share” approach adopted by the intelligence community in the aftermath of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.That philosophy, the panel worried, has given a wide range of people in recent years access to material unrelated to their work, material they could potentially use “to compromise any number of interests,” said Sunstein.Instead, he said, the panel suggested that classified material be shared only with those “who by virtue of their work need to know” it. In addition, he said, people with access to confidential information should be re-vetted periodically, “to make sure they aren’t developing risks in terms of their loyalties and their commitments.”Sunstein said the committee’s review process was inclusive. It involved a public-comment period and meetings with representatives from the private and public sectors, including officials of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Agency (N.S.A.). The discussion was also based, he said, on a number of principles meant to help to organize their recommendations, including the notion that “there are some things that are off limits.”“Suppressing dissent, intruding into people’s private lives, or compromising people’s religious liberty … are illegitimate grounds for action, and they can’t be invoked as a basis for surveillance,” he said.Sunstein was wary of critics who say that the N.S.A. wants to “sweep stuff up.” He noted that even his colleagues on the panel who are well-versed in issues of civil liberty and privacy were “impressed by the N.S.A.” and its openness in helping think through important reforms.The N.S.A., he said, is committed to ensuring that the nation avoids another terrorist attack, but “it isn’t interested in people’s political views, or personal views, or personal lives. It just isn’t.”And while the intelligence community may not agree with all of the panel’s recommendations, said Sunstein, “the fact that our report, which has a number of non-trivial changes from the status quo, has not got the intelligence community all up in arms, I think, is helpful in seeing their openness in trying to strike a better balance.”Sunstein said he found it “pleasing” that it’s impossible to discern how people will side on any one of the committee’s 46 recommendations purely based on their party affiliations.“That is a challenge in a way because you don’t have prebaked alliances on which you can build. But it’s also a great opportunity for the United States, for the first time really in a long period, to put our operations in this domain on a very firm footing that will make it less necessary, or at best unnecessary, for us to have the kind of heat that we have seen over the last years.”When asked if he thought there would have been a presidential review panel if the security case involving Edward Snowden, the intelligence contractor who publicized a trove of sensitive government documents, didn’t exist, Sunstein offered the noontime crowd a little humor.“I read a lot of science fiction, which has a lot on alternative universes, parallel universes, and I actually believe they are true. So I tried to visit a parallel universe in which Snowden didn’t happen, and that’s classified.”Cass Sunstein on ‘Liberty and security in a changing world’last_img read more

Students compete in Tough Mudder race

first_imgSeveral Notre Dame students participated in a race through a giant obstacle course this weekend, an obstacle course that ends in a field of live wires that carry a 10,000-Volt shock. Sophomores Ryan Tixier, Dan Yerkes and Kevin Colvin tested their endurance in the Tough Mudder course Saturday and Sunday in Attica, Ind. They joined more than 6,500 other participants in the 12-mile obstacle course. “Tough Mudder has some crazy obstacles, but it’s worth it because it’s for a charity that helps returning vets readjust to life back home,” Tixier said. “Our roommate, Kevin, sent us a link on Facebook about it earlier in the semester, so we all grabbed onto it.” Tixier said British Special Forces designed the course to be a test of strength, mental grit and camaraderie. All proceeds from the weekend’s race support the Wounded Warriors Project, a charity that helps soldiers returning from overseas readjust to life in the United States. Some of these veterans participated in the race, Tixier said. “The most satisfying thing is that you’re actually helping people,” Tixier said. “There were some returning vets from Iraq there, one with prosthetic legs, who did it too. That just made it much more real. It was a really great event overall.” Icy water, swamps and blazing bales of kerosene-soaked straw greeted the participants at each turn of the course, according to the race website. Other obstacles included trails of cargo nets, 12-foot high walls and wire fields. “You’d run two miles, then scale a rope and drop 20 feet into an icy lake. You would swim under barriers and could barely move at some points,” Tixier said. “At another you crawled through a trench with dangling barbed wires filled with electricity hanging down. You’d feel jolts, but you kept going.” Yerkes, who ran the Chicago Marathon in October and qualified for the Boston Marathon, said the military-style obstacles were very different from other endurance races. They made teamwork necessary to complete the course. Tixier said he was surprised by the level of camaraderie displayed at the event. Though participants were physically exhausted, he said they were enthusiastic and helped one another finish the course. “You’d stay at one place for five minutes to pull people over an obstacle,” Tixier said. “My roommate Kevin helped a girl over a muddy log because she couldn’t move. She had said, ‘My legs don’t work.’ But she rested and ended up finishing the course later.” Teamwork, physical exhaustion and determination were on full display during the course’s final sprint, Tixier said. “The very last obstacle was the field of live wires. You’d see the finish line, but stood there for two minutes with 20 other people trying to get the will power to just do it,” he said. “But it was a good last obstacle because it brought the life back into you.” The contestants celebrated the end of the race with music and food, as well as free tattoos or a head-shave, Tixier said. “They had a big stage with music, but most people huddled around fires,” Tixier said. “We were just happy to have survived. I did get my head shaved with a Mohawk before the race started though. You could get that or a mullet.” While the race was tougher and colder than he expected, Tixier said he planned to participate in a Tough Mudder event again. “I’ll do it again, but not during November,” Tixier said. “There were too many ice water swims where your entire body just goes numb. If I did it again, it would be during the summer months and I’d get more guys from my dorm to do it.”last_img read more

CUNA: MBL guidance should be open for comment prior to final rule

first_imgWhile CUNA supports proposed changes to the National Credit Union Administration’s member business lending (MBL) regulation, guidance should be released and open to comment before the rule is finalized.In its comment letter to the agency sent Tuesday, CUNA praised the agency for moving from the current prescriptive approach to a more principle-based methodology.“CUNA supports NCUA’s approach because it simplifies the regulation and removes many onerous business lending restrictions in the current rule not mandated by the Federal Credit Union Act (FCUA),” the letter reads. “The prescriptive approach may have been appropriate in the early years of business lending; however, in spite of the FCUA limitations and this prescriptive approach, credit unions across the country have developed robust commercial lending programs with experienced management and sound lending practices.”CUNA also urged the agency to release and permit comment on the supervisory guidance it intends to issue. The proposal requires a more thorough examination of loans and policies by examiners, so the NCUA should provide consistent training and guidance to examiners, CUNA added. continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
