Trump denounced at NYC march

first_imgHundreds of people from the various communities and organizations that reflect New York City’s working class gathered at Fifth Avenue and 56th Street at the Trump Towers on Dec. 20 to say “No to Trump, no to racism and immigrant bashing, no to Islamophobia, no to war.” Donald Trump has focused on a racist message in his public statements and his campaign rallies have opened their doors to some of the most reactionary fascist elements in the country.If there was one central message of the protest, it was the call for unity in the struggle against racism. For two hours people representing the different groups came to the microphone and gave a shout out for unity of the working class and all oppressed communities. Many Muslims were present, with their mosques or organizations, and gave a strong message that they could stand up proudly without having to apologize before the attacks of Islamophobes like Trump.Following the rally, the demonstrators marched to Sixth Avenue and then downtown to protest at the headquarters of Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post. They targeted these corporate media for the support they have given to Trump’s reactionary and racist ideas. The organizers from the International Action Center and other organizations said at the rally they consider today’s action “just a beginning” in the mobilization to stop Trump and others like him.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Family fights for charges after video shows fatal ’roundhouse’ kick to taxi driver’s head

first_imgWLS-TV(CHICAGO) — Three months after their father was killed by a kick to the head in the middle of a Chicago street, Omar and Rehman Tungekar are still looking for justice.Rehman and Omar Tungekar; the man’s widow, Thara Tungekar; and the family’s lawyer, Michael Gallagher, held a press conference on Wednesday and released new surveillance video of Anis Tungekar’s death at the hands of an Uber driver on Labor Day weekend.According to Gallagher, an Uber driver swiped taxi driver Anis Tungekar’s cab and knocked off his side mirror before driving off. At the next intersection, the 64-year-old Anis Tungekar pulled in front of the Uber driver, exited the vehicle and yelled at him.“Anis pulled his cab in front of the Uber driver, exited and verbally confronted him, pointing out the damage he had done to the cab,” Gallagher said at the press conference.The video shows Anis then walk to the passenger side and slam the folding mirror closed before walking back toward his cab. Gallagher called him “not aggressive in any way, shape or form.”“At that time the Uber driver got out of his car, walked to Anis and roundhouse kicked him, striking him in the head until he fell to the ground,” said Gallagher.Anis Tungekar was knocked out by one kick. He died two days later.The 30-year-old driver, whose name has not been released by police, was questioned by police about the incident, but released from custody without charges, according to Chicago ABC station WLS-TV.“The night that my father died, his killer was released without charges and here we are three months later still waiting for someone to acknowledge that it is a crime to kick someone to death in the city of Chicago,” said Omar Tungekar, the victim’s son.Police and the state attorney said the incident is still under investigation.“Despite all the evidence, the State’s Attorney remains reluctant to charge this man and what this reluctance signals to us is, as far as the state is concerned, my father’s life had no value, that he was dispensable, not worth fighting for,” said Rehman Tungekar.The Uber driver has been removed from the using the app, a spokesperson told the Chicago Sun-Times.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Caffeine control guidelines launched

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Caffeine control guidelines launchedOn 1 Apr 2004 in Personnel Today TheDepartment of Safety has issued new guidance on the amount of caffeine thatworkers can legally imbibe each day.Thepublication, Controlling Caffeine – Creating a healthier work environment,warns that workers must keep and maintain a daily record (written orelectronic) of their daily caffeine consumption (DCC) at work. Employers mustensure that such records are kept.Dailycaffeine records (DCR) must be kept for at least three months and must beavailable for inspection during normal offices hours to assigned inspectorsfrom a number of prescribed government organisations, including environmentalhealth inspectors from the Department of Safety.Allworkers (unless they are exempt or partially exempt workers) must not exceed acaffeine consumption of 250 milligrams within 24 hours. This limit is referredto as the personal caffeine limit (PCL).If,for any reason, a non-exempt worker exceeds the PCL, it will represent a‘caffeine excess incident’ under amendments to the Reporting of Injuries,Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR).  All ‘caffeine excess incidents’ have to bereported to the Department of Safety by the quickest means possible.Workersand employers reporting ‘caffeine excess incidents’ will receive information,advice and, if appropriate, counselling. TheDepartment of Safety has wide powers to enter and search business premises, toseize suspected caffeine containing beverages (CCB) and to prosecute bothworkers and employers.Exemptworkers, as defined in Schedule 4, include night workers (as defined in theWorking Time Regulations 1998), homeworkers and staff in certain exemptworkplaces, including offshore installations, the NHS, academic establishmentsduring certain parts of the academic year, journalism and actuarial services.RichardBretton, Health & Safety Partner at law firm Osborne Clarke, said: “TheBritish tradition of ‘making a brew’ will shortly become a thing of the past,and vending machines selling hot drinks, cola and chocolate will soon bebanished from every workplace.” TheControl of Caffeine at Work Regulations 2004 implements the provisions of theCaffeine Consumption Directive 301/2002 and the remaining elements of the YoungWorkers Directive 128/1999.  Theregulations were drafted by the Department of Safety (DoS) under the EuropeanCommunities Act 1972, section 2(2) and create a number of new onerousrequirements.Forfurther information visit https://www.personneltoday.com/goto/23131last_img read more

moe. Paid Tribute To Butch Trucks With An Awesome “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” Encore At The Georgia Theatre [Recap / Setlist]

first_imgJam stalwarts moe. continued their winter tour last night with a tight two-set performance at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA. The band filled the show with older, fan favorite material, awesome and poignant covers, ambitious improvisation and slick transitions.Set one opened with an energetic take on “Sensory Deprivation Bank”. “All Roads Lead to Home” followed, before a fun version of “Queen of Everything” was trotted out. “Don’t Wanna Be” came next, before an awesome “Opium” into “New York City” segment that was the highlight of the first set. A big “McBain” brought the first set to a close.Set two started off with the familiar falsetto of “Blue Jeans Pizza”. A heartfelt “The Happiest Days Of Our Lives” was up next, and that started off an awesome three-song segment that featured Pink Floyd‘s ever-poignant “Another Brick in the Wall”, and a raucous “Lazarus”. The band then kicked into high-gear with a seamless, four-song set-closing run through “Hi and Lo”, “Don’t Fuck With Flo”, “Ricky Marten”, and “Meat”.For the encore, the band stepped on the stage and busted out an improv-heavy cover of the Allman Brothers‘ classic “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed”. It was a touching tribute to the recently deceased Butch Trucks, who sadly passed away earlier this week. They turned in an emotional version of “Liz Reed” in honor of their fallen compadre, as they toured with the Allman’s back in the 2000s.See below for a full setlist from last night’s moe. show at the Georgia Theatre.

Converting skin cells to stem cells creates ‘kidney structures’

first_imgHarvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) principal faculty at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) have established a highly efficient method for making kidney structures from stem cells derived from skin taken from patients. The kidney structures formed could be used to study abnormalities of kidney development, chronic kidney disease, and the effects of toxic drugs, and could be incorporated into bioengineered devices to treat patients with acute and chronic kidney injury. In the longer term, these methods could hasten progress toward replacing a damaged or diseased kidney with tissue derived from a patient’s own cells.The work was published in Nature Biotechnology.“Kidneys are the most commonly transplanted organs, but demand far outweighs supply,” said co-corresponding author Ryuji Morizane, associate biologist in BWH’s Renal Division. Morizane worked in collaboration with HSCI researchers Joseph Bonventre, Albert Lam, and M. Todd Valerius.“We have converted skin cells to stem cells and developed a highly efficient process to convert these stem cells into kidney structures that resemble those found in a normal human kidney,” Morizane said. “We’re hopeful that this finding will pave the way for the future creation of kidney tissues that could function in a patient and eliminate the need for transplantation from a donor.”Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects 9 to11 percent of the U.S. adult population and is a serious public health problem worldwide. Central to the progression of CKD is the gradual and irreversible loss of nephrons, the individual functional units of the kidney. Patients with end-stage kidney disease benefit from treatments such as dialysis and kidney transplantation, but these approaches have several limitations, including the limited supply of compatible organ donors.While the human kidney does have some capacity to repair itself after injury, it is not able to regenerate new nephrons. In previous studies, researchers have successfully differentiated stem cells into heart, liver, pancreas, or nerve cells by adding certain chemicals, but kidney cells have proven challenging. Using normal kidney development as a roadmap, the investigators developed an efficient method of creating kidney precursor cells that self-assemble into structures that mimic complex structures of the kidney. The research team further tested these organoids — three-dimensional organ structures grown in the lab — and found that they could be used to model kidney development and susceptibility of the kidney tissue to therapeutic drug toxicity. The kidney structures also have the potential to facilitate further studies of how abnormalities occur as the human kidney develops in the uterus and to establish models of disease in which they can be used to test new therapies.“This new finding could hasten progress to model human disease, find new therapeutic agents, identify patient-specific susceptibility to toxicity of drugs, and may one day result in replacement of human kidney tissue in patients with kidney disease from cells derived from that same patient,” said Bonventre, an HSCI principal faculty member. “This approach is especially attractive because the tissues obtained would be ‘personalized’ and, because of their genetic identity to the patient from whom they were derived, this approach may ultimately lead to tissue replacement without the need for suppression of the immune system.”last_img read more

Ratings downgrade as U.S. coal company Bowie Resource Partners faces ‘liquidity shortfall’

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):Bowie Resource Partners LLC could face a liquidity shortfall in the next year if it fails to extend its revolving credit facility, S&P Global Ratings said in a downgrade of the U.S. coal producer.The company’s liquidity may be insufficient to cover its revolver due in August and mandatory amortizations, a June 8 ratings action said. S&P Global Ratings dropped its corporate credit rating for Bowie from “CCC+” to “CCC,” lowered the rating on the company’s $335 million first-lien and $100 million second-lien term loans to “B-” and “CC” from “B” and “CCC” and placed all ratings on CreditWatch with negative implications.“While long-term contracts with large utility customers provide some stability to future cash flows, we view the business to be vulnerable to unexpected outages or operational disruptions given its smaller size and dependence on two anchor customers,” the rating agency wrote.More ($):  Bowie Resource Partners downgraded over concerns of liquidity shortfall Ratings downgrade as U.S. coal company Bowie Resource Partners faces ‘liquidity shortfall’last_img read more
