‘Big Sleepout’ held in New College

first_imgOxford University Student Union (OUSU) held a ‘The Big Sleepout’ this weekend, with students spending spending the night sleeping rough in New College quad. The event was designed to increase awareness of the acute homelessness problem afflicting Oxford as well as to raise money for the charity Oxford Homeless Pathways.The Sleepout has been organised as the culmination of Homelessness Awareness week, held by OUSU’s new ‘On Your Doorstep’ campaign, an initiative intended to provide students with information concerning how they can help end homelessness.Students assembled in New College quad on Saturday evening and heard a talk from Oxford Homeless Pathways on the importance of the charity’s work, followed by a discussion ofthe issues surrounding homelessness.Sandwiches and hot drinks were provided to participants, though they had to bring their own sleeping bags.Darcey Murphy, a student from Balliol closely involved with the organisation of the night, commented, “we wanted to do a Sleepout as part of On Your Doorstep’s Homelessness Awareness Week. We’re having a discussion about what it means to be homeless and the stigma around it.”The event cost £3 to attend, most of which will be used to fund the Hostel O’Hanlon House. The hostel accommodates two hundred people who would otherwise be homeless, fifty six of whom are rough sleepers, every night of the year.Lesley Dewhurst, Chief Executive of the charity, explained how Oxford has a particularly acute homelessness problem due to the high cost of accommodation and lack of affordable housing. She explained that, “the effects of the recession and welfare reform have exacerbated these problems, and cuts to local authority spending are having a serious impact on services like ours which rely on grant funding.”Many individuals and JCRs have expressed solidarity with the aims of the initiative. Keble JCR’s Charities Officer remarked, “Homelessness is one of the most visible social problems in Oxford. The campaign is a great way of raising awareness for local initiatives and charities that we can all support.”Some people have vioced concerns that the event reduces the problem to the singular issue of sleeping rough, rather than encompassing all issues surrounding homelessness.A Keble second year commented, “Whilst the idea seems good as a means of raising awareness, there is a danger students will feel they can empathise with the homeless, despite their relative safety in New College, and the provision of food and drink”.However, the organisers are quick to dispel fears that they are attempting to emulate the gravity of the problem. Darcey Murphy explained that, “we’re not trying to claim that sleeping out for one night in any way reflects what it’s like to be homeless, but we’re hoping it will encourage people to consider their conceptions of homelessness more closely.” CherwellTV has filmed the sleepout and a broadcast will be available on our website soon.last_img read more

Oriel College dismisses contractor over harassment claims

first_imgOriel College has dismissed one of its contractors after students allegedly experienced intimidation and sexual harassment from builders working on a site in their Third Quad.Oriel College’s Domestic Bursar, Kevin Melbourne, told Cherwell, “It was recently brought to the College’s attention that some of our College members had experienced or witnessed inappropriate remarks and behaviour by a contractor working on the Rhodes Building redevelopment.“Oriel does not tolerate inappropriate behaviour of any kind and as soon as this issue was brought to our attention we took immediate action, removing the perpetrator from the premises within the hour. The College made it clear to the main contractor that this behaviour is utterly unacceptable, that it should not recur, and that any future instances would be dealt with very severely.“All further reports have been investigated and to the best of our knowledge were historical instances that took place prior to the contractor being removed.“The College has a zero-tolerance policy on sexual harassment. We have urged all students to report any instances of unacceptable behaviour immediately to the Junior Deans or a member of the senior management team so that appropriate and speedy action can be taken.”The refurbishment of the Rhodes Building, which currently houses fresher undergraduates, has been an ongoing project since June 2013 and was due to be finished in September 2014. While all the accommodation was finished in time for Michaelmas term, work by external contractors has been ongoing through Michaelmas and Hilary on seminar rooms and a new gym on the ground floor, as well as on landscaping Oriel’s Third Quad.One second year female undergraduate commented to Cherwell, “In Michaelmas term, I experienced a number of incidents of harassment. The strangest was when one of the builders sang a song about my ass as I walked by. On a separate occasion, a group of them discussed my body loudly within earshot. I’ve lost count of the number of times they’ve whistled at me.“As I live opposite the building site, this became a daily occurrence. I think I’ve been conditioned over the years to ignore street harassment but in hindsight I wish I’d reported it earlier. I finally decided to say something when I heard that a large number of girls had been subjected to this disgusting behaviour. The College has dealt with it extremely well.”Another student, who also reported her concerns to College, commented, “Some of the builders working on Oriel’s Third Quad – one in particular – have demonstrated inappropriate behaviour towards myself and other female students whilst working in Third Quad, but mostly while taking breaks on Oriel Street.“It is extremely uncomfortable to walk down there at the moment as they stand by the side and often look you up and down and mutter inappropriate comments. Living in Third Quad makes it pretty hard to avoid (particularly the staring). I have reported this to College and they are taking it very seriously and are trying to do something about it.”The JCR President of Oriel, Kit Owens, commented to Cherwell, “I am very pleased with the quick and decisive response the college made when it became aware of reports of harassment. It sends a clear message that this sort of behaviour is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our community.”last_img read more

Weed Control

first_imgGeorgia corn farmers are preparing for harvest, but they can’t take a break once they ship their crops to market. That time should be focused on staying ahead of weeds that can cripple the next year’s crop.University of Georgia Cooperative Extension corn weed specialist Eric Prostko says that Palmer amaranth, also known as pigweed, has the potential to produce seed in corn fields up until the first frost. He urges Georgia producers to consider appropriate management options before leaving the field unattended for the winter.The first frost typically does not occur in Georgia until November. In the three months between harvest and frost, pigweed can continue to grow and reproduce at a high rate. If not managed, a female plant could produce approximately 400,000 seeds.After corn harvest, Palmer amaranth plants that emerge up until 35 days before the first frost have the potential to produce viable seed, Prostko said.“The season is not over. What farmers do after they’ve harvested their corn is equally important as what they just did during the season,” Prostko said. “When the farmers get the corn harvested and they’re not doing anything during that period from August to November, if they allow the pigweed to go to seed just after they’ve worked to keep pigweed out of their fields for the last couple of years, they will have ruined all of that work.”To control Palmer amaranth plants larger than 6 inches in height, Prostko recommends that producers either mow, apply tillage or both. For plants less than 6 inches in height, farmers should consider tillage or herbicide applications.“Right now, corn growers need to be thinking, ‘After harvest, what I am doing? Am I planting a double crop? If I’m not planting a double crop and I’ve got pigweed or tropical spiderwort, I’ve got to do something,’” Prostko said.Tropical spiderwort — also known as Benghal dayflower — can also go from germination to seed in about 40 days. Tropical spiderwort is characterized by late-season emergence and, if uncontrolled, can produce seed and contribute to weed problems for future crops.Prostko recommends farmers either use tillage or herbicides to control spiderwort.If fields are tilled, they should be cultivated every three to four weeks while spiderwort is emerging. If herbicides are used, they must be applied after the plants have recovered from any damage caused by harvesting equipment, when they are actively regrowing or are less than 6 inches in height.For farmers in southern Georgia counties who plan to double crop, Prostko says that planting soybeans or grain sorghum after corn is an excellent way to help manage postharvest weed problems.For more information about corn production in Georgia, see the UGA Grain Crop Team website at grains.caes.uga.edu.last_img read more

Bar policy shifts will assist law school faculties and sections

first_imgBar policy shifts will assist law school faculties and sections July 1, 2006 Regular News At the urging of the Budget Committee, the Bar Board of Governors has amended two standing board policies, one to help sections and the other to help law school faculty who want to become affiliate Bar members.Outgoing Budget Committee Chair Mayanne Downs presented the changes at the board’s June meeting.One exempts sections from being charged for general administrative expenses by the Bar for sponsorship money they raise during the year.The second allows the Board of Governors to annually set the amount that will be charged for law faculty affiliate members, instead of setting that amount in standing board policies.That amount had been $25 and the board approved setting it at $35. Law professors who become affiliate Bar members are allowed to become section members if they pay the same dues as other section members.Bar Executive Director John F. Harkness, Jr., also said the change is a benefit for public law schools. Law schools will be able to pay for a group membership for all their law professors.“We think this will allow more faculty members to become affiliate members,” Harkness said.center_img Bar policy shifts will assist law school faculties and sectionslast_img read more

Take responsibility to curb gun violence

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion  With the exception of hunting, emotional factors play the major part in how a gun will be used. Although cars have been used as weapons in places like Charlottesville, guns are the more likely resource if a person wants to kill someone. For cars, administrations and institutes in the United States helped put in backup cameras, stability control and other safety measures.But there is no advising agency for safe gun use. Maybe the Second Amendment needs Amendment 2.5, stating that there must be adequate protection for those without guns and for those too young or frail to possess them. The National Rifle Association, fearful politicians and gun companies stand by gun advocates by taking no action on the consequences of how guns are used and how many of them are out there.To quote the cartoon caption after the slaughter in a movie theatre, “Freedom isn’t free.” So true. If collectively we took responsibility to reduce gun violence, then maybe we would live in a safer environment. If we only had the will to do so.Bill ShapiroNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusPuccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?
