Oxford City Council have voted overwhelmingly to support a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal. The motion was initially suggested by Green Party councillors, and follows a letter signed by 16 Labour councillors calling for a referendum on the final deal, joining their Liberal Democrat and Green colleagues.34 councillors were in favour of the motion, with six against and two abstaining.Green councillor for St. Mary’s ward, Craig Simmons, said: “I am encouraged by the cross-party support for this Green Group motion calling on a People’s Vote on the terms of any Brexit Deal. It is important to now spread the word and encourage other local authorities to pass similar motions. “In this way we can build upon the groundswell of support for a second referendum and give MPs the courage to take a different path.”Oxford SU President, Joe Inwood, told Cherwell: “We need a People’s Vote to tell the government it has taken the wrong path through the Brexit process.“Oxford students know how to spot a debating society charlatan when we see one – Boris Johnson needs holding to account for his false promises. The voices of students and young people have been ignored ever since the referendum. A bad deal will hit us hardest, yet the government are totally deaf to our concerns.”Speaking to Cherwell, Dominic Brind, a Magdalen student and spokesperson of Our Future Our Choice, said: “This is great news and shows that the Council are awake to the democratic necessity of a People’s Vote. “It shows a willingness to give the student body, who make up a sizeable portion of the city’s population, the opportunity to have a say over their futures that many of them lacked in 2016’s deficient referendum.”Councillor for St Clement’s ward, Tom Hayes, was one of the principal organisers of the Labour councillors’ letter, which said Brexit would “harm all our futures” and underlined the potential dangers for the NHS following a trade deal negotiated with “chest-thumping nationalist” Donald Trump. Cllr Hayes told Cherwell: “Theresa May is in office, but Jacob Rees-Mogg is in power.“The people who recently re-elected me with a larger majority and vote did so because I was calling for a People’s Vote. Since co-signing the letter, I’m pleased to have received 100% support from my ward.“The Labour Party’s Shadow Secretary of State for Brexit, Sir Keir Starmer, is on record as being open to a People’s Vote, as are a large number of constituency Labour Parties and MPs including David Lammy. “As Europe’s biggest party, Labour is a highly democratic member-led organisation, and I’m calling for a People’s Vote and standing on this platform in the elections to the National Policy Forum of my party.”A survey undertaken by Opinium for the People’s Vote campaign found in May that 69% of Labour voters supported a vote on the final Brexit deal, compared to 53% of voters nationally.The Labour councillors’ letter also deemed Brexit a “disaster for working people”. Most obviously at risk are the 4,500 staff employed at Cowley’s flagship MINI plant. In June, BMW announced that they would be forced to close down sites in the UK if Brexit caused customs delays during the shipments of car parts. The Guardian reported that a “full or part closure would have a devastating impact for the surrounding area.”Labour councillors who voted against the motion included Sajjad Malik, Deputy Lord Mayor, whilst council leader, Susan Brown, abstained.The Liberal Democrat candidate for Carfax ward, Conor McKenzie, told Cherwell: “It is great to see that some Labour councillors have joined the cause, though still a shame that many have followed the party’s lead nationally of either supporting the Conservatives’ pursuit of a Hard Brexit or dithering with people’s future by abstaining.“What disappointed me most is that a Labour councillor in each Holywell, Carfax and North wards voted against this motion. These areas are overwhelmingly student and voted by more than 80% to Remain, so this is a huge let-down.”Only Liverpool and Oxford City Councils officially support a People’s Vote. Other councils, such as Swansea, are exploring the possibility of voting on the matter.
Mayor Jay Gillian presents the Salute to Working Women 2019 Award to Karen Bergman. By Maddy VitaleCouncilwoman Karen Bergman joked with the audience that it was hard to believe she was receiving the 2019 Salute to Working Women Award from the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce.“What an honor for a Philly girl,” she said with emotion as she looked out into the audience Wednesday at the Flanders Hotel, where family and friends filled the room.The honor recognizes women in business for their achievements, both professionally and personally.Bergman, who also serves as the Flanders Hotel’s director of catering, began her love of Ocean City when she owned and operated Nash’s News on Asbury Avenue from 1997 to 2004.It was there that she developed a passion for Asbury Avenue and the Ocean City business community, she said.“I always had a passion for people,” Bergman said from the podium.Ocean City Councilwoman Karen BergmanBergman recalled when her love affair with Ocean City began.“As owner and operator of Nash’s News I met so many diverse people,” she said. “It really is a place where my love for Asbury Avenue began.”Bergman told the audience that she does not consider herself a political person, but rather a person invested in the community.She served as an Ocean City councilwoman from 2008-2012 and took a three-year break from politics.In 2015, City Council asked her to return to fill an unexpired seat being vacated by Michael Allegretto, who became the city’s Director of Community Services.“I will always be grateful to that Council,” Bergman said of her opportunity to be involved in City Council once again.Chamber members, family and friends fill the Flanders Hotel luncheon venue for the event.Bergman thanked many people for her achievements and successes, including Peter Voudouris, who hired her back at the Flanders after she left for a position in Cape May. She also thanked her parents, children and stepchildren and her grandchildren.Mayor Jay Gillian and Cape May County Freeholders E. Marie Hayes and Jeffrey Pierson honored Bergman with a proclamation for her accomplishments.During the luncheon, the one resonating theme was strength.Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Michele Gillian told the crowd at the start of the program that Bergman truly deserves the honor bestowed upon her for her never-ending work for the betterment of the community.“Karen is very unique. She is a friend, Council person, great mother, great grandmother – not a great grandmother,” Michele Gillian said as the audience laughed at her joke. “She is one of the nicest and most caring people you ever want to meet.”Gillian noted that this is the 21st year that the Chamber is honoring working women with the award.She highlighted all of the honors Ocean City has received that put women in focus. The main one occurred in 2015.Ocean City was voted one of the Top 5 places for women to own a business.“We promote and nurture women and respect women in the workforce,” Gillian said.Gillian added that there is great volunteerism by women in Ocean City and that it is important for women to get out and have their voices heard.Karen Bergman shares a light moment with Brian Broadley, second vice president of the Chamber of Commerce, Chamber Executive Director Michele Gillian and Mayor Jay Gillian.In addition to Michele Gillian, Mayor Jay Gillian and Brian Broadley, second vice president of the Chamber of Commerce, got up to honor Bergman.The mayor said he surrounds himself with great people. Bergman, he said, is one of those people.“This is the real deal,” Gillian said as he put his arm around Bergman.He emphasized that she is an asset to the city and the community and that he is so pleased she chose to return to City Council.While the focus was on Bergman, keynote speaker Carol Beske, founder of ACT Engineers, told the audience why it is so important to honor Bergman, and all women for that matter.Beske sold her company two years ago and is happy traveling and enjoying time with family. She is also ACT Engineers’ director of public involvement.Beske, a mother of four and the former mayor of West Windsor, started ACT Engineers 27 years ago.Before she spoke of her career, she said a few words to Bergman, who sat with family and friends in the audience.“Can you imagine how much joy you’ve brought into people’s lives?” Beske asked Bergman, referring to her position as head of catering for many pleasant events, including weddings at the Flanders Hotel.Beske told her story to the crowd that perseverance will make a goal achievable.She said while her husband was always supportive of her career path, she made her own decisions.“I choose what I do,” she said with a smile.Carol Beske addresses the audience.When Beske founded ACT Engineers, there were some tough times, especially in the beginning when the checks were small and her children’s college tuition checks were large, she recalled.But over time, five years, then 10, then 27 years, the business built up to be a thriving and successful company.“It takes a lot of perseverance,” she told the crowd.She added that there are some wishes she had for women in the workforce, specifically, there aren’t enough in politics.There are 20 women in the U.S. Senate and only 100 women in the U.S. House of Representatives, Beske noted.That, she said, needs to change. “We have much to offer,” she added.She ended her speech with this advice: “Take advantage of every opportunity and don’t sell yourself short. Go for it, ladies. We love women in the workplace.”Karen Bergman accepts a proclamation from Cape May County Freeholders E. Marie Hayes and Jeffrey Pierson.

Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter Mayor Mueller send questions to special prosecutor in charge of Eric Logan shooting Pinterest WhatsApp By Jon Zimney – March 14, 2020 2 342 (Photo supplied/ St. Joseph County Jail) South Bend Mayor James Mueller has submitted questions to the special prosecutor in charge of the Eric Logan investigation.The mayor says he wants the prosecutor to clarify some points and release evidence from the case, including having the prosecutor clarify how he determined former Officer O’Neill was justified in using deadly force.In addition, he asks Special Prosecutor Ric Hertel to release evidence he used to come to his determination no charges should be filed against former officer Ryan O’Neill.The questions come after a heated meeting, when Mayor Mueller met with the public late last week regarding the decision not to purdue criminal charges against former officer O’Neill.The meeting started with messages of support from city officials to Logan’s family, included an opening statement from the mayor, and then they took questions; which is where things got emotional.Most of the questions revolved around a desire to know exactly what evidence the special prosecutor found to exonerate O’Neill of any wrongdoing.Mueller said he is working a special request to make the evidence findings public, but not nod guarantee that he could get it released.

Saint Mary’s hosted its first student health and wellness fair, called “Win with Wellness,” on Friday in the Angela Athletic and Wellness Complex. Funded by a gift from alumna Kristine Anderson Trustey (’86), the fair was intended to generate more health and wellness programming on campus, Julie Schroeder-Biek, Saint Mary’s director of athletics, said. “[Trustey] gave a gift to the College, and with that gift she has charged us to do some more programming for health and wellness, so we thought that we would start it off with a wellness fair,” Schroeder-Biek said. Schroeder-Biek said this will be the first of many programs to provide students’ health and wellness education, which will begin to be introduced this academic year and will be kicked into high gear in the 2018-2019 academic year.The student health fair was structured around five prongs of health and wellness, Schroeder-Biek said. “We are focusing on five basically: mind, body, spirit, emotional and financial,” she said. “Those are kind of the prongs that we are really focused on.”Schroeder-Biek said in terms of focusing on the wellness of the mind, her goal was to provide students with methods of handling the stress they may be facing. “Because we are an institution of higher learning, we definitely wanted the mind and all the stress that you all deal with and try to give you guys options on how to calm down, how to deal with stress,” she said. In order to provide spiritual resources, Schroeder-Biek said she called on campus organizations for their assistance. “With the spirit, we have all these partners on campus, so we could pull in Campus Ministry and have them help us,” she said. The most unique aspect to the wellness prongs was promoting financial wellness, Schroeder-Biek said. In order to give students the tools to succeed financially, campus organizations such as Career Crossings attended the fair. “The other prong that we did add which was interesting was financial, because as our women are leaving Saint Mary’s we want you all to have those tools in your toolbox on how do you know what insurance to get, how to fill out your tax forms and there’s a lot that we’ve got resources on this campus that we could help you with,” Schroeder-Biek said. Due to the inclement weather Friday, there were concerns about the amount of people who would attend, but the fair ultimately did not see much of a setback, Schroeder-Biek said. “We were pretty nervous with the weather, we did have some vendors back out on us understandably because of the weather,” she said. “We didn’t almost know what to expect on a Friday afternoon, so I’ve been happy so far to see the people come through.” The fair had over 25 booths set up advertising the five prongs of wellness, and Schroeder-Biek said she was particularly excited about the Save a Life Tour booth that addressed distracted driving. “I love the distracted driving [prevention] that we have, the Save a Life Tour, because it’s dealing with distracted driving — being texting or drunk driving — and I think that these are really important booths to safely see how distracted it actually is,” she said. Schroeder-Biek said she would like to host this fair annually, and hopes to see it improve over the years.“We’d love to have feedback from the students,” she said. “We want to continue this annually, we would love to hear feedback on how we can make it bigger and better every single year.”Tags: funding, health, wellness
Josh Gad as LeFou in ‘Beauty and the Beast'(LeFou photo by Disney/Collage by Broadway.com) View Comments Beauty and the Beast’s LeFou has always been Gaston’s henchman—and his hype man. After all, he’s the one who has the townspeople dancing on tables, sloshing big mugs of beer and singing about Gaston’s thick neck and cleft chin. In a recent interview with Attitude Magazine, Beauty and the Beast director Bill Condon revealed that the character (played by Tony nominee Josh Gad in the live-action remake) is in fact gay and will have the first Disney “gay moment” when the film hits theaters on March 17.“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” said Condon. “He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. And that’s what has its payoff at the end, which I don’t want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.”OK, let’s all watch a clip of “Gaston” with brand new eyes now!
By Dialogo March 01, 2010 Two French warships arrived in Panama on Friday to pass through the interoceanic canal on a training voyage for cadets from the French Naval Academy, diplomats announced. The helicopter carrier Jeanne d’Arc and the frigate Courbet have been on a voyage around the world since December with more than a hundred cadets enrolled in the French Naval Academy. They plan to pass through the Canal on Saturday, Jean-François Bazin, chargé-d’affaires at the French embassy in Panama, told AFP. During the short visit, cadets from different countries will exchange information about defense, piracy, the fight against drug trafficking, and illegal fishing, as part of the professional training of the future officers of the French navy. The two ships left Brest (France) on 2 December to visit Morocco, Senegal, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Panama, Colombia, Martinique, Guadeloupe, the United States, Canada, St. Pierre and Miquelon (a French overseas territory in the Atlantic, near Canada), Germany, and Belgium, before returning to Brest on 27 May. The Jeanne d’Arc, which carries 586 marines on board, including 103 French cadets, in addition to other students from the Netherlands, Kuwait, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cameroon, Togo, Brazil, Spain, and Belgium, has taken part in multiple humanitarian missions and in the fight against piracy, forming part of the European ATALANTA deployment in the Indian Ocean in 2009. Nevertheless, this will be the last voyage for the Jeanne d’Arc, which has sailed 3.3 million kilometers (nine times the distance between the earth and the moon) since 1964. The Jeanne d’Arc is accompanied by the frigate Courbet, 125 meters in length, with more than 150 personnel on board, between officers and sailors.
Consumer awareness of identity theft risks spikes every time a large-scale data breach hits the headlines. The average consumer is probably at least a little concerned about identity theft, and many are very concerned. Javelin’s research tells us that about a third of all consumers who have identity theft protection obtained it through their bank or a credit card company, rather than through an independent provider. It’s easy to understand why consumers would turn to their trusted financial institution for help with this vital product that directly affects their financial security.However, if your FI is treating identity theft protection as merely a courtesy offering, or worse, not offering it at all, you’re missing a valuable opportunity to enhance your brand’s value and trustworthiness in the eyes of consumers.While overall awareness of identity theft has improved and the incidences of ID fraud declined slightly in 2014, it’s still a $16 billion problem in the banking industry, according to Javelin’s most recent research, the 2015 Identity Protection Services Scorecard – Direct-to-Consumer Market. In 2014, identity theft complaints again represented the lion’s share of complaints the Federal Trade Commission logged that year, accounting for 13 percent of all cases. Additionally, the Identity Theft Resource Center reports that last year data breaches reached a record high of 783 reported breaches, a 27.5 percent increase over 2013. continue reading » 26SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Israel’s parliament voted on Monday to allow the country’s domestic intelligence agency to track the cellphones of coronavirus carriers for the rest of the year amid a resurgence in new cases.The Shin Bet’s surveillance technology has been used on and off to track carriers since March, and the Knesset in a late- night decision approved the measure through Jan. 20, 2021, the Knesset news agency reported.The security agency tracks location data of confirmed carriers for 14 days before they were diagnosed. That data is used to identify anyone with whom they came into contact, which proponents say is crucial to infection chains. Topics : The surveillance has drawn challenges from privacy watchdog groups, and the Supreme Court cited worries over dangers to individual liberty in demanding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government regulate the surveillance through legislation.The new law includes additional oversight, requiring the government to renew its request every three weeks, and it can be used only when new daily cases exceed 200. Those ordered into isolation can appeal if they believe the data was inaccurate.The Knesset also instructed the Health Ministry to roll out an upgraded cell phone app that can be downloaded by the public to help track infection.Israel reopened schools and many businesses in May, lifting restrictions that had flattened the infection curve after a partial lockdown imposed in March.But a second-wave surge has many public health experts saying the government moved too quickly while neglecting to take the necessary epidemiological steps to control the pandemic once the economy reopened.Israel, with a population of 9 million, reported about 1,500 new infections on Monday. In total it has reported 415 deaths from the virus.
