first_imgSt. Clare’s retirees need help on pensionSo where does restitution of funding for St. Clare’s Hospital pensions stand? We have reached a stalemate. We were counting on the state of New York and the Albany Catholic Diocese to help us and were given some hope. But as of this moment, we have no funding.I can tell you the struggle is real, and the hardship is real for us. We are all certainly feeling the pinch financially and emotionally. We’ve sadly lost some pensioners along the way, and time is not on our side right now.I respectfully ask the state of New York and the Albany Catholic Diocese to please find it in your hearts to help us with funding. We have tirelessly voiced our frustrations to every possible source and have received an enormous amount of support from our community, legislators and local media, for which we are extremely grateful.  Funding of our promised pension is well deserved. We, the St. Clare’s Hospital retirees, faithfully and dutifully committed ourselves in serving the underserved and indigent community of Schenectady County. Ironically, we are now that community. We would like to live the last chapter of our lives with some dignity. Is that too much to ask?Patricia PangburnSchenectadyThe writer is a St. Clare’s Hospital pensioner. I write today as a resident of Saratoga, parent of a student, district alumna, and member of a dedicated law enforcement family. On May 21, I’ll be voting for Natalya Lakhtakia, Heather Reynolds and John Brueggemann for school board because they are the only candidates with well-rounded platforms making the positive case to elect them.If you haven’t been following the antics of their opponents (Saratoga Parents for “Safer” Schools or SPSS) on social media, then you might not have seen the stunning rhetoric they are infecting our community with. Allow me to summarize.It’s conspiratorial thinking. From the SPSS perspective, everything is hidden or secretive. When your go-to argument is that there is secret conspiracy against you, I humbly submit that you have stepped beyond the bounds of civil discourse.It’s bullying. SPSS consistently attacks opponents in highly personal terms. They have labeled their opponents as “anti-safety.” Can you imagine a more brazen or laughable attempt at slander? No one in this race (or any race) is “anti-safety.” This is the kind of absurd hyperbole that people hate.It’s partisan. SPSS loves to throw around the derisive label “political,” yet they seem to have no shame in adopting the tried and true tactics of name calling, scare tactics, push polling, party-line discipline, and big money. Some of the SPSS candidates, to their credit, have recently attempted to distance themselves from the partisan excess of their backers, but in my opinion, the die is cast.Brooke McConnellSaratoga SpringsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusCuomo calls for clarity on administering vaccineEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsGov.

Maybe.We will be replacing plastic one-use bags with possibly paper bags that were replaced by one-use plastic bags because we were cutting down too many trees and the landfill thing. Plastic bags have been found to be a hazard to the environment. We realize this because they don’t biodegrade.We are now going to be “threatened” by a user tax because the markets and most likely everybody else we buy from like Target, Walmart, Stewart’s, etc., who use these bags, will also do this.We are trainable, people. I bought re-usable grocery bags from the markets, in the dollar store, etc. I just have to remember them when I leave the house. Buy reusable bags and start using them. I think we can educate ourselves not to have to pay a ‘ransom’ for a bag when we buy something. Let’s start now and eliminate the element of surprise by taking the bags with us. It’s not going to work if we don’t think green.Holly RussoGlenville Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionStart using reusable bags to avoid new taxcenter_img Support positive Spa school board slate Union president not judge on free speechIt’s impossible to be certain, but it sounds like the president of Union College is taking it upon himself to be an arbiter of appropriate speech when in a recent op-ed he said, “I oppose free speech on college campuses.” The list of folks who have tried unsuccessfully to control speech is long, notorious and burdened with the yoke of failure. Perhaps Mr. Harris has within himself the elusive combination of talents and capabilities to make it work. But considering he had the testicular fortitude and lack of common sense to commit such words to paper, there are doubts at hand.John P. SummersNiskayuna last_img read more

M’Vila joins Sunderland

first_img “Every player welcomed me and the feeling was very good with them so I’m excited for the start of the season. “I’ve also wanted to play in the Barclays Premier League for a long time so I’m very happy to be here.” Sunderland have the option to sign M’Vila permanently at the end of the loan agreement. M’Vila has been capped 22 times by France and spent last season on loan with Inter Milan, having started his career with Rennes. He follows Jeremain Lens, Younes Kaboul, Sebastian Coates and Adam Matthews into the Stadium of Light. Sunderland have announced the signing of France international Yann M’Vila on a season-long loan from Rubin Kazan. Press Associationcenter_img Twenty-five-year-old M’Vila is the fifth summer signing by manager Dick Advocaat and is available to face Leicester this weekend. “I’m very happy to be a Sunderland player.

Professor leaves quietly amid controversy, lawsuit

first_imgAfter the Sexual Harassment Task Force at the Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work dissolved in Spring 2018, the school has started making changes to its harassment and discrimination policies. (Julia Rosher/Daily Trojan) “I would imagine that they could at least release something saying that he is no longer on the faculty [so] that students know that, because it wasn’t just me who became fearful seeing him around,” Fenwick said. Tory Cox, assistant dean of field education at the Virtual Academic Center, also worked on the Sexual Harassment Task Force. Cox served as a co-chair for the Steering Committee, which guided the Environmental Culture Workgroup, Policy Workgroup and Assessment Workgroup. He also served as a liaison between the groups. Cox said that in preparation for the Fall 2019 semester, the School of Social Work updated its guidelines in business agreements with field organizations that graduate students work with to complete their required internship hours. These changes included measures to make students aware of harassment and discrimination policies at these internships and inform them on how to file a complaint. Guerrero could not be reached for comment at the time of publication. Fenwick said she was informed of Guerrero’s departure from USC through “underground gossip” rather than an official message from the University. While Fenwick said she understands the University must be careful with the information it releases concerning Guerrero due to the lawsuits at hand, she said that she and other students should have been informed that Guerrero would no longer be present on campus. “They owe it to Karissa to inform her, to let her feel safe and comfortable being on campus, and they haven’t done that because they won’t announce anything,” Winer said. “They’re keeping everything for some reason confidential.” Cox said the School of Social Work also sent out a school climate survey in January that included questions on sexual harassment and discrimination for students, faculty and staff. Its results are currently being compiled and will be used to identify more key issues the school must address. But she said she hasn’t received many updates on the progress of the recommendations since the task force submitted its report in Spring 2018. Hathaway and University Media Relations declined to comment on the status of the libel lawsuit. He said field instructors, who supervise students during internships, also received training, which includes live sessions and a 30-minute video about the University’s expectations for harassment and discrimination policy and reporting. Fenwick was also a student member of a Sexual Harassment Task Force assembled in Fall 2017. Students, faculty and staff on the task force compiled a 49-page report with recommendations to improve the School of Social Work’s policies, procedures and communication regarding issues of harassment and discrimination. Erick Guerrero, a former USC assistant professor who was placed on probation in Fall 2018 following an investigation of his alleged sexual harassment of a student, is no longer employed at the University as of Nov. 20, 2018, University Media Relations confirmed to the Daily Trojan.center_img “The idea of culture change is an important thing to recognize, that this is what the effort of the task was, to make sure that what had taken place previously would not take place again,” Cox said. Carl Castro, an associate professor at the School of Social Work,who was also part of the task force, said changes have already begun, but communication was more consistent before the task force dissolved last spring. Back then, he said updates were routinely provided via email and on the task force website. “Many of us have been wondering what is happening with those, when are they being implemented and how,” Fenwick said. “It seems like the school just wants the whole thing to fizzle out, which I guess I can understand from their perspective, but it’s unsettling I think from some of ours.” In October 2017, graduate student Karissa Fenwick filed a lawsuit against USC and Guerrero, accusing him of sexually harassing her in his hotel room during an academic conference. Guerrero also filed a libel lawsuit in October 2018 against 72 professors from the School of Social Work who publicly condemned him after the sexual harassment allegations surfaced. “We’ve done a nice, really thorough circle of what it takes in the field environment to make sure all parties are well-informed and that the process for filing a complaint is clearly delineated,” Cox said. Cox said these changes seemed necessary in light of recent sexual harassment allegations made on campus and complaints students made regarding their internships. “I just think we need a school-wide and University-wide campaign of communicating changes,” Castro said. “You can’t just say it once, you’ve got to say it multiple times, in multiple ways, in multiple venues.” Fenwick’s lawyer John Winer said he did not know why the University has not Guerrero’s departure publicly commented. Guerrero’s lawyer Mark Hathaway said Guerrero, who was an assistant professor at the Dworak-Peck School of Social Work resigned from the University. The Daily Trojan could not confirm this with USC. The School of Social Work faculty also voted to add six extra pages to its Faculty Guidebook on sexual harassment and discrimination policies, which is waiting on University approval, according to Castro. “We have students in every state doing internships, so the more spread out you get, the more important your policies and expectations are … so that agencies know where you’re coming from as an institution,” Cox said. last_img read more
