Harvard grad student workers unionize

first_imgIn a Harvard Crimson interview on May Day, President Drew Faust said she would bargain with its new graduate student union. This decision, affecting 5,000 graduate and undergraduate teaching and research assistants, comes after eligible students voted to unionize on April 18-19.Now Harvard Graduate Student Union – United Auto Workers is soliciting nominations for its bargaining committee.What is the plight of these workers? In the past the university has unilaterally imposed hardships like increased teaching loads and inadequate medical coverage on top of health care rate hikes without any discussion. Now the grad students can negotiate for improved benefits and working conditions and help set the terms of their employment.This stability will allow them to focus on research and teaching and also “build a stronger political voice beyond Harvard on issues that matter to us as academics.” ( This refers to the activism of other Harvard workers, like those who recently formed the TPS (temporary protected status) Coalition to force President Faust to protect rights of im/migrant workers.

State and National Issue Updates to Highlight IN Farm Bureau Convention

first_img By Andy Eubank – Nov 30, 2016 Home Indiana Agriculture News State and National Issue Updates to Highlight IN Farm Bureau Convention Previous articleDow DuPont Merger set to Close in 2017Next articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for December 1, 2016 Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE State and National Issue Updates to Highlight IN Farm Bureau Convention infb-2016-convention-previewAn update on the upcoming 2017 General Assembly legislative priorities and strategies for Indiana Farm Bureau will be on the agenda at this month’s INFB State Convention in Fort Wayne, December 8-10. Farm Bureau president Randy Kron says the lobbying team will cover infrastructure issues during their breakout session.“How do we pay for a lot of this infrastructure, and how do we maintain it? That’s going to be one of the topics,” Kron told HAT. “Another one that comes up in the Farm Bureau circle quite often is broadband. How do we get broadband out to these rural areas? With our farms and all the technology, we need high speed broadband, so it’s going to be important to determine how you do it and how you fund it.”Also at the state convention Mary Kay Thatcher, Sr. Director of Congressional Relations at American Farm Bureau will update members on what lies ahead in farm bill talks.“Mary Kay when it comes to farm bill or agriculture policy is probably one of the best around,” Kron said. “I know it seems early to be having a discussion about farm bill, but we’re hearing a lot of chatter from DC that they might be writing it early or this one might be cut a little short with a new farm bill. So, what we want to do is make sure our Indiana farmers start thinking about what’s important to them. We talk about safety nets, but what’s really a safety net? Is it crop insurance? We talk about that and the ARC program and whether it’s the county. There are just a lot of variables there.”Matt Erickson, Chief Economist for the Senate Ag Committee will provide more of the Washington DC perspective on the farm bill, and there is a session on big data.Indiana Farm Bureau invites its membership to Find Your Voice with other members from around the state during the state convention. Find Your Voice is the theme this year, and Kron says it’s important.“We as farmers sometimes forget that our world doesn’t end at the farm gate. We have to tell our story and that’s what Find Your Voice is about. Whether it’s at your local courthouse, the statehouse or in our nation’s capital, it’s about talking about your farm, telling your story, what we do, and making sure legislators understand what issues are important to each of us.”Convention pre-registration is closed although you can register on-site.

Witness of photographer’s killing offered bribe for false testimony

Enríquez Zavala was arrested on the night of 3 July on suspicion of ordering the killing.Other disturbing facts have emerged, including Enríquez Zavala’s belated arrival at the murder scene and the fact that all of the city’s police officers were assigned to tasks outside of the city on the night of the murder. All in all, there is now a degree of confusion about the suspected roles played by Enríquez Zavala and Antonio Frausto Ocampo, a drug cartel hit man with whom he has been linked.________________________________________________________05.07.05 – Former police chief arrested for murder of Gregorio Rodríguez HernándezAbel Enríquez Zavala, the former head of municipal police in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, was arrested on the night of 3 July on suspicion of ordering the 28 November murder of photographer Gregorio Rodríguez Hernández of the daily newspaper El Debate.Enríquez Zavala was public security director for the city of Escuinapa at the time of the murder, having been suspended from his previous position four months before. He has been linked to Antonio Frausto Ocampo, a hit man working for the Sinaloa drug cartel who allegedly carried out the Rodríguez killing._____________________________________________________16.12.04 – Gregorio Rodríguez Hernández’s killer identifiedA report in the daily La Crónica de Hoy on 3 December said the police have identified the presumed killer of El Debate photographer Gregorio Rodríguez Hernández, who was gunned down on 28 November in Escuinapa, in the northwestern state of Sinaloa. The killer is said to be Antonio Frausto Ocampo, an alleged hit man for the Sinaloa cartel, which is led by Ismael El Mayo Zambada. The police are also reportedly looking for two brothers, Doroteo and Manuel Ulises Cedano Ornelas, who are suspected of participating in the killing. A third brother, Abraham Cedano Ornelas, 20, has already been arrested.The police found the jeep allegedly used by the killers in a place owned by Frausto Ocampo. The murder weapons has also reportedly been identified. Initial findings suggest that Rodríguez was killed because of his work as press photographer. In an article published on 3 December, journalist Jesús Blancornelas said Rodríguez is believed to have taken photos that show former police chief Abel Enrique Zavala in the company of Frausto Ocampo at a party on 20 November.————————————————————-03.12.2004 – News photographer gunned down in front of family in restaurantReporters Without Borders today condemned the slaying of Gregorio Rodríguez Hernández, a photographer with the daily El Debate in Escuinapa, in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, who was gunned down on 28 November while dining in a restaurant with his wife and two children.”In view of the increasing violence in Mexico, especially against the press, all aspects of this murder must be investigated thoroughly including the possibility that it was linked to the victim’s work as a journalist,” the organisation said in a letter to Sinaloa governor Juan S. Millán, asking to be kept informed of the investigation’s progress.Some witnesses said the killers arrived on foot and shot Rodríguez at point-blank range before making off. Hit in the head, neck and chest, he died immediately. Other accounts referred to two individuals using a pickup. The newspaper said one of the presumed killers had already been identified.Rodríguez had various local beats, including sport, society and crime. El Debate news editor Juan Carlos Ramírez said the killing might have been linked to a brief published on 24 November about a physical attack by two suspected drug traffickers on a doctor who refused to treat an injured person they brought to his surgery. But Ramírez stressed that he did not want to speculate, and that the gunmen could have killed the wrong man.Editor Laura Bejar added that Rodríguez was often asked to take photos of violence linked to drug trafficking.None of El Debate’s reporters had received threats, but the newspaper had requested police protection for two journalists working in Escuinapa. With 25 murders in the past four months, Sinaloa is one of Mexico’s most violent states. center_img News July 8, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Witness of photographer’s killing offered bribe for false testimony News Receive email alerts to go further MexicoAmericas Help by sharing this information April 28, 2021 Find out more NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs saylast_img read more

New Jersey police may arrest drivers who have yet to return $188K that spilled out of truck onto highway

first_imgWABC-TV(NEW YORK) — It was the best of the Christmas spirit, and it was the worst of the Christmas spirit.New Jersey officials said that more than $114,000 of about $510,000 in cash that spilled out of the two plastic bags in the back of a Brinks armored truck earlier this month has been returned by drivers — and that another roughly $200,000 was gathered on scene and returned to the Brinks drivers.But about $188,000 in cash remains missing, according to police officials in East Rutherford, New Jersey.Video capturing the incident shows stunned motorists pulling their cars over and rushing onto a busy highway, grabbing at bills fluttering through the air — and causing multiple car accidents.Still, more than $188,000 remains missing, and presumably is still in the hands of some of those motorists — who could be arrested if police track them down before they come forward voluntarily.Captain Phillip Taormina with the East Rutherford Police Department told ABC News that police were looking at license plate cameras, Department of Transportation cameras, and cameras from MetLife Stadium and the New Jersey Turnpike to identify motorists involved in the incident.Taormina also said other motorists had turned in dash cameras and cell phone footage.He said everyone who has returned the money came forward themselves, and that charges would be pursued against anyone who police identified through video.Police said the truck’s rear passenger door opened due to a mechanical issue as it was driving along Route 3 that morning when the two plastic bags fell out of the open back door and flew open, scattering across the highway and being blown around by “vehicle traffic along with the windy weather conditions.”Videos taken by other motorists showed the money on the road and other drivers abandoning their vehicles to chase the cash, which police said caused accidents.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
