IS IT TRUE FEBRURY 7, 2017

first_img IS IT TRUE the City’s acquisition of the dilapidated and vacant CVS property located at the corner of Columbia and North Main street was purchased by the City DMD Department over 2 years ago for $525,000? …that the Director of the Evansville DMD Kelly Coures told City Council that this property would be able to rent for $18,000 per year? …if this property was rented for $18,000 a year the real value would be $180,000 not $525.000? …the value of this building should be lower because of the bad condition and the location of the building?IS IT TRUE dilapidated and vacant CVS property located at the corner of Columbia and North Main street allegedly had many individuals that were going to lease their property from the City of Evansville DMD Department but all failed through? …the Director of the Evansville DMD now claims that Deaconess Hospital is interested in acquiring this property for a testing lab? …we hope that this property won’t be taking from the tax roll because of Deaconess Hospital not-for-profit status? …we hope that they pay at least $525,000 to acquire this property?IS IT TRUE just right across the street from the vacant CVS Building 6 houses are now vacant and surrounded by a security fence for possible demolition to make way for another City of Evansville DMD or Evansville Land Bank project? …the properties addresses begin at 16 to 32 West Columbia Street just right off North Main Street? …we wonder who owned these properties and who bought them to demolish for how much per home? …we also wonder if people renting the above houses were abruptly forced to move elsewhere?IS IT TRUE the Regents of the University of California need to take notice though, since when the faculty and student at the University of Missouri threw a free speech oppression tantrum a few years ago, the financial penalties came fast and hard?…the incoming freshman class at Missouri was so much smaller that two dorms had to be closed and the alumni giving declined by $30 Million?…President Trump’s threat to withhold federal dollars from UC Berkeley is much less of a threat to their coffers than the massive alumni base cutting off donations and sending their offspring elsewhere for an education?…several UC Berkeley alums including the creator of Dilbert have already stated their intention to cease their generosity?…this should be a theme going forward for universities who allow oppression of freedom of speech by cowering to the mob in the street?…if the faculties and administrations will no,correct this cowardly refusal to provide a place where freedom of speech is practiced, it is time for their generous alumni to take the bull by the horns and starve them into returning to places of knowledge, tolerance, and freedom?FOOTNOTE:  Do you feel that the Evansville City Council should give a developer of an existing Eastside Shopping Mall a $80,000 tax credit phase-in so he can renovate it?

Gordon Polson, director, the Federation of Bakers

first_imgClimate change is a hot topic at present and one that has a direct impact on bakers as demand for biofuels increases.As part of the EU’s commitment to promote renewable energy, it is encouraging member states to produce biofuels as a way to cut carbon emissions.The Federation of Bakers (FoB) supports the role that renewable energy sources from agricultural sources can play in tackling climate change. However, this will lead to additional demand for crops such as wheat and will carry implications for the supply of wheat for bread.The mandatory target proposed in the EU Energy Package of 10 January, 2007, is that biofuels should replace a minimum of 10% of petrol and diesel for transport by 2020. It is a worry that the mandatory nature of the target could give rise to exacerbated shortages of agricultural raw materials for food production.Increased demand for wheat crops would inevitably also affect price. In fact, the EU Energy Strategy for Biofuels estimates that, by 2010, cereal prices will increase by 6-11%. This would come hot on the heels of previous wheat price rises in recent months.To ensure a smooth move to the increased use of biofuels, the FoB believes that policies should be managed in a way that does not distort the availability of agricultural raw materials for food. The introduction of financial incentives to encourage farmers to sell agricultural raw materials to the biofuel industry must be carefully managed.last_img read more

Professor offers basics of bioethics and the law in 90 minutes

first_imgBioethics, the law, and how they pertain to health information technologies, reproduction, and research have raised questions, and often hackles, since humans began to debate the boundaries of life. Should physicians assist in the death of a patient? Or create embryos and destroy them in the service of creating stem cell lines? Under what circumstances should the state be allowed to involuntarily hospitalize individuals, and what procedures are in place to protect the rights of those individuals?Harvard Law School Professor Glenn Cohen brought those questions, and an approach to consider them, to an interactive, one-night class at the Harvard Ed Portal that delved into the intricacies surrounding the legal, medical, and ethical aspects of bioethics.The Sept. 13 lecture, attended by nearly 60 people and audited online by more than 100 viewers from all over the world, was held in conjunction with Cohen’s HarvardX course,  “Bioethics: The Law, Medicine, and Ethics of Reproductive Technologies and Genetics.”Bioethics is about testing our intuitions, examining a series of cases that are alike and unalike and then exploring whether the variations affirm or challenge our gut feelings, said Cohen, the faculty director of the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics.“This is what law professors do, take the premise of what something should be and nudge you toward doubt and self-doubt,” he said. “Especially when educating with material that is both fascinating and terrifying. There is a certain moral panic when thinking about making these decisions.”A live audience listens to Glenn Cohen’s bioethics lecture at the Harvard Ed Portal while a live stream reaches nearly twice as many people. Rose Lincoln/Harvard Staff PhotographerMark Keating, a student from Brooklyn who has been taking Cohen’s online course, traveled to Allston to attend the lecture in person. “The first week of the online class was fascinating, looking at odd experiments and tweaking this or that to see if our intuition changes,” he said. “It fostered an environment of debate and discussion for me even outside of the class.”The discussion included what Cohen referred to as “patients and passports,” or medical travel. Should parents be allowed to take their children abroad for things that are illegal at home, such as abortion? Should laws be extraterritorial? How should we allocate who gets priority on organ transplant waiting lists? What is morally significant regarding intuition — in other words, what is the right thing to do?Even the obscure, such as who owns the hair customers leave at a barber shop or the blood drawn in a lab, are the types of questions that are examined every day by hospital ethics committees, research ethic boards, classrooms, and courtrooms. The answers, however, will only come through the process of pushing intuitive thinking and nudging the boundaries of discussion across society, Cohen said.Audience members had plenty to say through the 90-minute lecture.“This is a field growing in importance and stature,” said Jamie Susskind of Cambridge, Mass., a fellow at the Berkman Klein Center who is writing a book on the future of political ideas.“When you are dealing with the law you want a yes or no answer so you can have a precedent, but in this case you almost can’t be wrong,” said Carmen Altes of Watertown. “There is no direct answer, so there is no wrong way to arrive at a conclusion.”Brad Bellows, also a Cambridge resident, said the lecture let the community be part of a Harvard Law School class for one night.“We don’t do enough of these kinds of events. Anything that gets people thinking is a good thing,” said Bellows. “This Allston setting is an important part of Harvard that is often overlooked.”“This is a wonderful opportunity to both experience and have a discussion with Professor Glenn Cohen,” said Robert A. Lue, faculty director of the Harvard Ed Portal and faculty director of HarvardX. “Glenn is something of a superstar at the Harvard Law School and clearly has a remarkable breadth of intellectual interests and projects.”The takeaways for the evening were beneficial to both teacher and students. Cohen said he liked seeing how he could adapt his course to the Ed Portal setting and how thoughtful people were in their participation.“I find this endlessly fascinating,” said Cohen. “I hope I’ve at least entertained you, if not educated you.”The lecture was one of the Faculty Speaker Series offered by the Harvard Ed Portal as part of its educational initiative stemming from HarvardX, an online learning resource offering high-quality programs in many disciplines.SaveSavelast_img read more

Right to Life sponsors apologetics training

first_imgNotre Dame Right to Life sponsored apologetics training Monday night to teach students to defend their pro-life beliefs. Apologetics commissioner Luke McVeigh instructed participants on how to facilitate dialogue and articulate pro-life arguments.“What we aim for is to have a friendly, open dialogue with someone about it,” he said. “There’s what you say and how you say it. Obviously, it’s important to be saying the right things, but also how you say it is just as important, if not more important.” McVeigh began the training session by explaining the scientific foundations of the pro-life argument. He said it was important to establish “common ground of what the pre-born are.” “Our development is all self-based, there’s not anything that develops for us,” he said. “It’s self-directed. The mother isn’t directing the development of the child; the unborn is directing its own development.”Understanding stages of human development has become an important facet of pro-life apologetics, McVeigh said.“A lot of times, people bring up the idea of when someone becomes a person — when they have a heart, when they have a brain,” he said. “That would be true if you were talking about a car, which is constructed, and all these parts are added on. Whereas with a development, the blueprints are already there, it’s just developing and growing, like a photograph.”McVeigh said most people agree on the science of the “pre-born” and that most of the discrepancies are rooted in philosophy, specifically related to defining personhood. “Personhood is based on what we are,” he said. “It’s our substance, regardless of functionality.”Participating students brought up counterarguments they had heard which they were unsure of how to answer, such as when the pregnancy is life-threatening to the mother. McVeigh said the pro-life response has centered on the idea that directly killing another human is not acceptable.“But in a situation like an ectopic pregnancy, there are procedures that’ll kill the unborn child. In this case, we’d say it’s okay to perform the procedure to save the mother,” he said. “Unfortunately, it will inevitably end the life of the child. … If the mother died, both of them would pass away anyways.”Monday night’s training was intended to be the first part of a two-part training session for apologetics, McVeigh said. “The second session is going to be about bodily rights,” McVeigh said. “Even if we assume the fetus is a person with the right to live, there are some other arguments that people would make that says the fact that it’s inside the woman’s body gives her the right to end its life. We’ll be going into those issues in depth and explaining why it wouldn’t be okay for that to happen.” McVeigh said it was important to remain compassionate and sympathetic when engaging in discussion without compromising beliefs. “Be proud of your pro-life position,” he said. “We’re not ashamed of it; we’re happy to discuss with people about it. We have a great group here at Notre Dame, and I hope to grow it.” Tags: apologetics, Right to Lifelast_img read more

Alan Cumming on Playing Cabaret’s Emcee in Every Decade

first_img Cabaret Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on March 29, 2015 View Comments Alan Cumming will take his final bow as Cabaret’s Emcee when the revival closes on March 29, but he’s had quite a stay at the Kit Kat Klub. He reaches the “end of an era,” he explained to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, after playing the pansexual ringleader in every decade of his adulthood (Cumming first played the role in his 20s, and he recently turned 50). But don’t expect a 60-year-old Emcee. Take a look at the fun clip below as Cumming vows to hang up the suspenders for good, and recounts his fashion (or lack thereof) influence on former co-star and fellow current Broadway headliner Helen Mirren.
