Birmingham University Injunction

first_imgBirmingham University has recently been granted an injunction that criminalises any occupation of university property for the next year. The injunction follows a recent occupation of an abandoned campus building and other protests which have resulted in sanctions against students.Tessa Gregory, a solicitor at Public Interest Lawyers who is acting on behalf of Birmingham students, described recent events as being ‘a shameful attempt by the university to prevent students from exercising their lawful right to protest.’ A Birmingham University spokesperson claimed that the injunction would have no effect of the right of student protest on campus; ‘it merely covers the unauthorised occupation of campus or buildings.’Other universities have also resorted to legal action to end occupations. Sheffield University have recently withdrawn a similar injunction last week after successful negotiations between student occupiers and university authorities. Students at Royal Holloway were also threatened with a high court injunction, although the occupation ended before the university resorted to such action.Asked to comment on the Birmingham injunction and Oxford’s response to a future occupation, an Oxford University spokesperson stated that the University ‘fully supports people’s right to protest, as long as it is within the law. We do not support occupying University buildings as a means of protest. Any response to a particular protest would depend on the circumstances.’In November 2010 the Radcliffe Camera in Oxford was occupied by a group of students as part of a wider protest against public sector cuts. The protest ended after more than 24 hours when the police managed to break through a door.The National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts has placed the blame on the increasing privatisation of higher education. They say that certain principles, such as freedom of expression and democracy on campus, are being lost, as ‘high paid university executives are cracking down on all forms of dissent on universities’ campuses.” They will ‘fight this draconian injunction in court’ as well as disregarding the injunction in practice by organising more protests at Birmingham University.last_img read more

Trip to Post Office is Old-Fashioned Treat

first_imgJack Devine counts on the Ocean City Post Office to arrange for his annual shipping of a holiday gift to Poland. By TIM KELLYIn an age of cyber-deals, easy online shopping and other benefits, carrying packages and waiting in line at the post office might seem old-fashioned.That’s exactly what customers seem to like about going to the Ocean City Post Office at Ninth Street and Ocean Avenue.“I love that post office,” said Johanna Hoch, a resident at Gardens Plaza Condominium at Park Place and the Boardwalk.“I look forward to going there. It’s a fun experience. I like the Art Deco architecture and the original brass post office boxes,” Hoch added. “What I really like are the people who work there. They’re helpful and they remember you.”The Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce and the city named a marketing effort for its already popular Asbury Avenue and Boardwalk businesses “Old Fashioned Family Christmas.”The local post office certainly fits into the theme and complements it.Though technically not a business, the United States Post Office representing the 08226 zip code dovetails with the free carriage rides downtown, breakfast and photos with Santa, the Christmas tree lighting and the annual Holiday Parade, among other featured events and tourism incentives.On Tuesday, the effort seemed to be doing a good job of luring more folks to Asbury Avenue and the Boardwalk, away from the malls and chain stores.“I like to support local business and to keep my (holiday shopping dollars) here in town,” said Pat Garza, who lives in the Riviera section of the resort.She said that she prefers wrapping and packing her mailed items herself rather than trusting it to an online retailer.“Today, I sent off a package to Marlton, and I picked up a few large envelopes and packing supplies,” Garza said. “I’ll be back here when those items are ready to ship.”Count Kathleen Tully as a major fan of the Ocean City Post Office’s services.Postal customer Kathleen Tully noted that Amazon and other online retailers and “Big Box” stores are convenient but impersonal.Tully, who lives in the Gardens section of town, said, “I use Amazon for things that I bought (conventionally) and then can’t find in retail stores. I can usually find those items on Amazon for my repeat purchases. Everything else I buy locally and mail from here.”Tully said she also enjoys buying Christmas stamps at the post office to dress up her holiday cards and letters.Residents aren’t the only ones using the O.C. Post Office’s old-school methods to their advantage.Savvy local businesses are doing it too, said Aimee Schultz, whose JASM Consulting company helps clients do just that.One of them, Jilly’s, utilizes online ordering for its gift baskets, she said.However, the baskets are personalized to fit the needs of each customer, which results in different shipping needs as well.“The post office is great at that,” said Schultz.She also mentioned Jon & Patty’s Coffee Bar and Bistro as a business in town that combines both high and low technology.Schultz said the restaurant receives numerous online orders for gift cards and mails out individualized messages along with the cards.“The post office allows them to (add value) to the gift card sales as an additional point of contact with customers,” she said.Pat Garza stops at the post office to mail a package and purchase several large envelopes for future mailings.An reporter observed several other businesses in line Tuesday at the post office, but most were folks looking to mail packages and cards or to purchase supplies for mailing and packing holiday gifts.Jack Devine, executive director of the Ocean City Arts Council, was mailing a card and talked about how he utilizes the post office for a gift he sends to Poland every year.“One of the people who works there is (a native of) Poland and I enjoy speaking with her about where my package is headed,” Devine said. “It’s great because you can track the package and with the cost of postage, you receive an extremely well done (hard copy) record of what’s going to happen regarding delivery.”A postal worker said Tuesday that employees were not permitted to do interviews when they work.An off-duty employee, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the personal touch is what the postal service is hoping to capitalize on in the years ahead as technology continues to evolve.“We have automated most of our operations as well,” the employee said. “The thing that sets us apart from the pack is that we can know our customers and sometimes anticipate their needs and help them to better meet them. People like doing business in this manner when many companies are so impersonal. It’s the old-fashioned way.”Rita Boyle of Park Place, who also owns a home in Camden County, said there was nothing like mailing cards, letters and packages from Ocean City.“The people here are so nice,” Boyle said. “They help you out and care about getting your packages there on time and for the least amount of cost.”A mural depicting an Ocean City post card stands outside the post office.last_img read more

SMC holds leadership conference

first_imgThe Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership (CWIL) Conference will take place this weekend at Saint Mary’s College. “This year’s conference focuses on the themes of leadership, women, intercultural studies and the intersection between them,” said Mana Derakhshani, a College faculty member helping to organize the conference. These ideas will be explored at the conference through various speakers, roundtable discussions, panels and workshops. The conference is hosted by the Center for Women’s Intercultural Studies and will start today and continue through Saturday. Beverly Tatum, president of Spellman College, a historically black college for women, will be the keynote speaker. She will give a presentation entitled “Educating Tomorrow’s Global Women Leaders” tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the O’Laughlin Auditorium. Tatum has made a career out of women’s education, written several books and is an expert on race and identity, Derakhshani said. “She epitomizes in many ways the various themes of the conference”, she said. Derakhshani emphasized how the CWIL Conference’s themes related to everyday life. “Some of the presenters and most of the participants are not professors or academia. They bring together theory and practice,” she said. “The conference is a place to share ideas, to learn about innovative projects and theories or how people are dealing with these issues in research and practice.” She encouraged students to attend the conference.

Building a Tradition

first_imgA lot of people have asked how Batesville has developed such a good distance running program.  When I came to Batesville and took over the cross country program, it was run by the basketball coach, and the main participants were the basketball players trying to get into shape for basketball.  They had very little desire to improve as runners.Even though I coached basketball at the time, I decided to recruit athletes whose first love was running. One of these young men was Dennis Dierckman who went on to finish second in a state distance race.  Also, I expanded the training to include practicing on Saturdays and running through the summer vacation for fun.  Since most other programs in southeastern Indiana were just like Batesville had been, it was not difficult to dominate them.With the success of Dennis Dierckman and the runners who followed him, we built a tradition which continues today.  After I retired, Leo Turchyn, Ron McAllister, Lisa Gausman, and Ben Pierson have continued with this attitude.  They are continuing to do quite well in distance running.  Once the tradition is established, athletes want to be a part of winning programs.last_img read more
