For Palestine: Hundreds disrupt Zionist parade

first_imgUnder the slogan “Celebrate Ending Israeli Apartheid,” over 100 activists disrupted the annual “Celebrate Israel” parade in New York City on June 4. Seven Jewish protesters were arrested. Five of those, identified as queer Jews, interrupted the parade’s LGBTQ bloc with signs saying “No pride in apartheid” and “Queer Jews for a free Palestine.”Counterdemonstrators, called together by Jewish Voice for Peace and If Not Now, unfurled banners, staged sit-ins and blocked the parade. Thousands, including NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York state Gov. Andrew Cuomo, marched down Fifth Avenue in the annual parade, which has received Israeli government funding of nearly $800,000 over the last seven years.Organizers said in a press release that they were resisting 69 years of Zionist terrorism, oppression and aggression, and expressing support for Palestine. They condemned Israel’s “apartheid wall and the more than 600 checkpoints, obstacles and other barriers” to freedom of Palestinian movement. A JVP statement also condemned the “exchange programs” between the New York Police Department and Israeli security forces that harm both communities of color and Palestinians.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Credit: Jeff FilippiniAfter spending 16 days suspended from a giant helium balloon floating 115,000 feet (35,000 meters) above Antarctica, a scientific instrument dubbed SPIDER has landed in a remote region of the frozen continent. Conceived of and built by an international team of scientists, the instrument was launched from McMurdo Station on New Year’s Day. The California Institute of Technology and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, both in Pasadena, California, designed, fabricated and tested the six refracting telescopes the instrument uses to map the cosmic microwave background (CMB), the thermal afterglow of the Big Bang that created our universe.SPIDER’s goal: to search the CMB for the signal of inflation, an explosive event that blew our observable universe up from a volume smaller than a single atom in the first “fraction of an instant” after its birth.The instrument appears to have performed well during its flight, said Jamie Bock, head of the SPIDER receiver team at Caltech and JPL. “Of course, we won’t know everything until we get the full data back as part of the instrument recovery.”Read the full story and see a slideshow from Caltech at:http://www.caltech.edu/content/spider-experiment-touches-down-antarctica#moreThe SPIDER project originated in the early 2000s with the late Andrew Lange’s Observational Cosmology Group at Caltech, and collaborators. The experiment is now led by William Jones of Princeton University, who was a graduate student of Lange’s.SPIDER is funded in part by NASA.

There are possibilities in this moment that we must seize as individuals, as a campus, and as a community.

He said leading the professional, dedicated men and women that compose the reserve has been a privilege and an honor.“This is selflessness at its best,” Smithard said. “They show when it’s cold and unpleasant, or on holidays.”The job can be demanding and stressful, he added.“It’s no walk in the park,” he said. But it’s also “an incredible opportunity.”But those who volunteer for the team and pass the rigorous selection process possess special qualities, Smithard said.“That’s a really impressive thing to be surrounded by,” he said. “If you’re not really enthusiastic about wanting to help other people, the emergency medical field is not for you.”Each reserve is required to serve a minimum of 16 hours per month, although many put in much more time than that, Smithard explained.About 40% of the team is made up of volunteers who plan to gain valuable experience and training and then eventually move on to other careers, ranging from doctors and flight medics to firefighters and police officers, he said.The other 60% are people with existing careers unrelated to emergency medicine.“We have people coming in from different walks of life,” Smithard said. They include rocket scientists, medical students, filmmakers, stay-at-home moms, nurses, and x-ray technicians.Among the team members is Andrew Klesh, who serves as chief engineer for interplanetary small spacecraft at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. While not riding in an ambulance to emergency calls, Klesh is the project systems engineer for NASA’s Lunar Trailblazer Mission.Each team member must be certified as an EMT, as well as undergo fire training and a probationary period.Reserves must not only be knowledgeable about medicine and emergency response but also possess the ability to calmly respond to stressful situations with decisiveness and confidence, Smithard said.“You need to be the calmest person in the room… where people are upset and hysterical,” he said.“We don’t allow people to wear the uniform and represent the city to the public unless they’ve passed those standards,” according to Smithard.The EMS Reserve is especially well equipped to assist with large events, such as the Rose Parade or Rose Bowl events, when as many as 20 of them at a time may be on duty to assist with influxes of patients. They also stand ready in the event of any major local catastrophe.While police reserves are common in the region, Pasadena’s Fire Department reserve is unique, he said.“It really doesn’t exist at all in California,” Smithard said.The reserves are dedicated to “emergency medical services” and are not used for fighting fires or rescue operations, city officials said.Smithard’s tenure heading the EMS Reserve will end next month, as he plans to retire and move out of state, he said.“I’ve enjoyed every moment of it,” he said.More information on the Pasadena Fire Department EMS Reserve is available online at emsr.org/index.cfm.

In the week ending on March 21, there were 3,283,000 claims for insured unemployment, an increase of 3,001,000 from the previous week’s revised level. According to the United States Department of Labor, this is the largest increase in history, as the previous high was 695,000 in October of 1982.Most states cited COVID-19 virus impacts in their unemployment reports. States continued to cite services industries broadly, particularly accommodation and food services. Additional industries heavily cited for the increases included the health care and social assistance, arts, entertainment and recreation, transportation and warehousing, and manufacturing industries.“This sudden increase in UI claims reflects the shock to demand in the economy,” said Doug Duncan, Chief Economist at Fannie Mae. “For a large segment of the workforce, the rapidly deteriorating employment situation is due to the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as the associated policy restrictions and shifts in consumer behavior, both aimed at avoiding infection. We interpret this morning’s release as a strong leading indicator of an expected increase in household financial stress.””The stimulus bill proposal currently working its way through Congress seeks to address certain features of the UI systems, such as eligibility requirements and the amount and maximum duration of benefits paid, which are intended to help alleviate some of the financial stressed caused by job loss,” Duncan continues. “Furthermore, payments to households are designed to make up for lost earnings. Proposed support for businesses is intended to help them survive the shock to demand in order to be positioned to re-hire workers after the virus subsides and demand picks back up.”Here’s what else is happening in The Week Ahead:Pending Home Sales Index (March 30)CoreLogic Case-Schiller Index (March 31) Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Employment Week Ahead 2020-03-28 Seth Welborn Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago March 28, 2020 1,269 Views The Week Ahead: Update on Unemployment Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agolast_img read more

While granting bail, the Single Bench of Justice Rajnish Bhatnagar highlighted that country is passing through a very difficult phase and the doctors are rendering important service to the nation. The Petitioner had moved the present petition to seek quashing of the FIRs registered against him for allegedly assaulting two women resident doctors of Safdarjung Hospital after accusing them of spreading COVID-19 in Gautam Nagar area. As per the allegations made in the FIR, the complainant (doctor), along with her sister, had gone to buy fruits where a person started speaking about social distancing and remarked that the doctors like them were spreading infection in residential areas. The complainant then informed the Petitioner that she knew the importance of social distancing and tried to reason out with him but he got abusive and aggressive and threatened that he would get a case registered against them . It is also alleged that when the complainant was about to leave the spot the Petitioner assaulted them and even touched them inappropriately. While informing the court that after cancellation of his bail he had surrendered before the Magistrate and now he’s currently in judicial custody, the Petitioner argued that he was only concerned about the social distancing being maintained between people looking into the threats of coronavirus. He further argued that he has been falsely implicated and he has only protested against the complainant and her sister for not maintaining the social distancing, and on this, both the ladies became aggressive and told that they were doctors and knew the meaning of social distancing. It was then argued by the Petitioner that immediately after the incident the complainant and her sister gave an interview in which no allegations of molestation were made and the allegations of molestation are just an afterthought. Counsel appearing for the state argued that the allegations are grave and serious in nature and the Petitioner rather than being thankful to the doctors attacked and molested them. While granting the bail to the Petitioner upon furnishing a personal bond of ₹20,000, the court noted that: ‘The petitioner being an educated man as stated by the counsel for the petitioner that he is an interior designer by profession should have been respectful to the doctors rather than abusing and threatening them.’Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

It’s good here at Pike County Elementary School.”For Grant, education is her passion. It’s what she has always wanted to do.“As long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a teacher,” she said.Grant said that she finds enjoyment and fulfillment in working with children.“As assistant principal, I was in the classroom often and I will be as principal,” she said.The learning process is an exciting thing to be a part of and Grant is not about to miss that.“I’m excited about the new school year,” she said. “We’ve been working hard to get everything ready when the students arrive. We want everything to be just right.”Grant is joined on the administrative staff by Shantell Rouse, who will be the assistant principal, and an important member of the school’s leadership team.“We are a team here at Pike County Elementary School and, as a team, we can accomplish much,” Grant said.
