Dalhousie student leader faces backlash for criticizing white fragility

first_imgHALIFAX – A Dalhousie University student leader says she’s facing a backlash for criticizing “white fragility” and standing with Indigenous Peoples on Canada 150 celebrations.Masuma Khan, a member of the student council executive, is under investigation for an online post that another student alleges discriminated against white people.The issue stems from a Dalhousie Student Union decision not to endorse Canada Day celebrations or hold celebratory events on campus.The decision prompted outcry from some groups, like the Nova Scotia Young Progressive Conservatives, who said in a Facebook post the student union “should be helping instill pride in our country, not boycott it on our most significant national holiday.”Khan, a fourth-year international development studies student, called the celebrations an ongoing “act of colonialism” and used a hashtag that referred to “white fragility.”“Be proud of this country? For what, over 400 years of genocide?” she said. “I stand by the motion I put forward. I stand by Indigenous students.”Her post prompted Michael Smith, a graduate student in history at Dalhousie, to pen an opinion piece for the National Post newspaper.“Canada is a welcoming country. We are blessed to be one of the most tolerant and multicultural nations in the world, where all individuals are free to pursue their dreams, regardless of their backgrounds,” he said in the op-ed. “Canadians have much to be proud of, and plenty to celebrate on this 150th year.”Khan, a Muslim woman of colour who wears a hijab, said implicit in these comments is that she isn’t from Canada.“People assume I’m an immigrant and assume I should be more thankful for what Canada has given me,” said the 22-year-old born and raised in Halifax. “I firmly believe that me being a settler to this land and being born in so-called Halifax in the land of the Mi’kmaq, it’s my job to stand in solidarity with them and to bring these conversations to the table and work harder towards reconciliation.”Meanwhile, Smith, who could not be reached for comment Friday, also lodged an official complaint with the university.The university’s senate discipline committee has agreed to hear the complaint. Khan had been a member of the committee, but says she has now been removed pending the outcome of her case.The committee is expected to review the complaint against Khan in November or December.Arig al Shaibah, Dalhousie’s vice-provost of student affairs, said the university’s code of conduct allows students to raise concerns about behaviour they feel negatively impacts their learning environment and experience.“With complaints of this nature, we engage in efforts to resolve issues through informal, educational and conversational means,” she said in a statement. “If individuals involved are not agreeable to informal means to resolve matters, the code dictates that the matter must be referred to the senate discipline committee for a hearing.”The university considers both critical dialogue and freedom of expression fundamental principles that guide its work, al Shaibah said.“Respect and inclusion are core to Dalhousie’s mission,” she said. “That said, these are complex issues, and it is my hope that all campus community members will play an active role in promoting critical and constructive dialogue.”But Khan said the complaint against her targets her free speech and identity.“People might say it wasn’t an appropriate response. You have to understand I deal with Islamophobia on the daily,” she said. “I’m the one that gets called a terrorist when I walk down the street.”“I don’t think it’s appropriate for the university to tell racialized students how they can talk about their lived experiences,” Khan added. “Suggesting I should take some training about how to talk about racism, that’s incredibly invalidating.”Khan said ultimately she couldn’t support Canada 150 celebrations when 172 Indigenous communities currently don’t have clean drinking water.Earlier this week, an Indigenous member of Dalhousie’s board of governors said she was subjected to institutionalized racism at a recent meeting.Kati George-Jim of the T’Sou-ke First Nation in British Columbia, a student representative on the Halifax university’s oversight board, raised her concerns in a lengthy letter she read aloud at a meeting this week. Despite the controversy, the outcome was cited by one board member as a positive step towards reconciliation.Added al Shaibah: “This past week, there have been important conversations, which for me, are fundamentally about issues of respect, inclusion and community. These conversations are difficult, yet they are essential.”last_img read more

At start of World Water Week UNICEF highlights how women and girls

As World Water Week kick off today, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has highlighted that the opportunity cost from a lack of access to water disproportionately falls on women and girls who collectively spend as much as 200 million hours – or more than 22,800 years – every day collecting this vital resource.“It would be as if a woman started with her empty bucket in the Stone Age and didn’t arrive home with water until 2016. Think how much the world has advanced in that time. Think how much women could have achieved in that time,” UNICEF’s Chief of Section of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Sanjay Wijesekera, said in a news release issued by the agency today.The message from the UN children’s agency comes as experts from around the world gather in the Swedish capital of Stockholm for World Water Week to discuss and develop new solutions to the globe’s most pressing water-related challenges.The theme of this year’s Week is ‘Water for Sustainable Growth.’ In the news release, UNICEF noted that the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) for water and sanitation – Goal 6 – calls for universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water by 2030. “The first step is providing everyone with a basic service within a 30-minute round trip, and the long term goal is to ensure everyone has safe water available at home,” UNICEF stated. “However, UN estimates are that in sub-Saharan Africa, for example, for 29 per cent of the population (37 per cent in rural areas and 14 per cent in urban areas), improved drinking water sources are 30 minutes or more away.”The UN agency noted that the people who are devoting time to such activities are almost always women and girls. A study of 24 sub-Saharan countries revealed that when the collection time involved is more than 30 minutes, an estimated 3.36 million children and 13.54 million adult females were responsible for water collection. In Malawi, for instance, the UN estimates women who collected water spent 54 minutes on average, while men spent only six minutes. “No matter where you look, access to clean drinking water makes a difference in the lives of people,” Mr. Wijesekera said. “The needs are clear; the goals are clear. Women and children should not have to spend so much of their time for this basic human right.” Woman in Gorkha district, Nepal, carrying drinking water. Photo: UNICEF/Narendra Shrestha UNICEF also noted that spending excess time for collection considerably shortens the time available to spend with their families, on child care, other household tasks, or in leisure activities. For children, water collection takes time away from their education and sometimes even prevent their attending school altogether. Furthermore, water collection can also affect the health of the whole family, and particularly children: when water is not available at home and even if it is collected from a safe source, the fact that it has to be transported and stored increases risk of disease by the time it is drunk. This in turn increases the risk of diarrhoeal disease, which is the fourth leading cause of death among children under five years of age, and a leading cause of chronic malnutrition, or stunting, which affects 159 million children worldwide. read more

Righthanded David Warner swats Chris Gayle for 14 off 3 balls

Is he batting right-handed? A David Warner switch hit from a T20I in 2012 Getty ImagesESPNcricinfo– Ever since his involvement in the sandpaper scandal at Cape Town last year, not much has gone right for David Warner in his year spent in exile from the Australian team on the T20 franchise circuit. That is until the left-hand batsman went right. Literally.Warner turned heads when he took guard right-handed against Chris Gayle midway through the 19th over of the Sylhet Sixers innings against Rangpur Riders on Wednesday. Judging by the resulting performance, he may be tempted to do it more often.The Australian captain of Sylhet was on 45 off 32 balls at the time and had started the over on strike to Gayle with a two, but then couldn’t get either of the next two balls away. Ahead of the fourth ball, he swapped stance at the crease and, with Gayle coming around the wicket, smashed the fourth ball with a golf-style straight drive over Gayle’s head for six to bring up his half-century.Gayle countered by going over the wicket but Warner stayed right-handed for the fifth ball and reached out to sweep a low full toss behind square for four. For the last ball, Warner reverse-swept Gayle, not middling it but still getting enough of it to go to the boundary. Warner celebrated during the sequence by doing a hip-shimmy dance and appeared to exchange a few words with Gayle at the end of the over. Warner ended the innings unbeaten on 61 off 36 balls.“It was one of those things [batting right-handed] at the back of my mind as I couldn’t get Chris [Gayle] away because of his height and the lengths that he was bowling,” Warner said at the post-match presentation. “I play golf right-handed, so I thought I might as well come and swing and clear the ropes. It came off.”Warner, who is naturally right-handed with his throwing arm and initially batted right-handed as a child, has made a habit at training sessions of spending time batting right-handed. Gayle perhaps should not have been totally surprised at Warner’s method since the Australian attempted to employ the right-handed stance in a T20I against the Gayle-captained West Indies in 2010.However, Warner was denied by the on-field umpires, who allegedly told him at the time that it was against the spirit of the game and that it could produce a lengthy stall because the fielding side would need to adjust their field settings to comply with regulations. But Warner would not be denied in Sylhet, as he pulled out all the stops in an effort to get the Sixers out of last place on the BPL table.

Better Housing Mental Health Care proposals during annual County Speech

Benefits strategies can reinforce organisational values

first_imgThe role of benefits strategies in reinforcing organisational values was one of the key themes to emerge from Employee Benefits Live 2016, which took place on 11 and 12 October 2016 at Olympia National, London. Keynote speaker Vicky Williams, director of people at the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), highlighted the importance of embedding organisational values into performance and business strategies. After launching its core values of teamwork, integrity, passion, and excellence in 2015, the LTA is now set to link these to employee performance reviews and associated reward.Benefits that represent an organisation’s values and culture were also on the agenda for Diarmuid Russell, vice-president of international at Glassdoor. During his keynote address, which opened this year’s event, Russell stressed the value of developing ‘moments of magic’, such as providing treats for new recruits on their first day at work that are representative of their new employer, or offering employees unique experiences that reflect the organisation’s core purpose.Russell said: “Moments of magic are the opportunity to really transcend the day-to-day employment experience and bring some magic to the employer brand and employee experience. It’s not just about fun stuff; it’s about finding something that is true to the [organisation’s] core values and that represents what [it does].”Such initiatives can not only engage employees, but also create brand ambassadors. With the rise of social sharing through sites such as Glassdoor, employer brand is increasingly important. Organisations should embrace the opportunities that such transparency can provide, said Russell.Leaders also need to be aligned with an organisation’s vision and purpose, according to Nicky Moffat CBE, former HR director at The British Army, who closed Employee Benefits Live 2016 with a keynote address on the ways in which employee-wide leadership can empower staff and drive business success. Leaders can help to engage staff by ensuring that values are explained in a way that is clear and relatable.How to offer benefits that support all employees and enable them to perform at their best at work remained high on speakers’ and delegates’ lists of priorities. Steve Varley, UK chairman and managing partner at EY, took to the keynote stage to outline the steps EY is taking to support inclusivity and diversity in the workplace. Flexible working is one of the many ways EY strives to meet the diverse needs of its workforce.Varley said: “Once we have recruited our people, how do we ensure that we are able to fulfil their career aspirations and offer working arrangements that will help support them throughout the different stages of their careers with us?“We refuse to let people be forced out of a career because we couldn’t be flexible enough to accommodate their situation. Our underlying philosophy is that if we are able to get the best out of our people by accommodating their needs, then the organisation, as well as the individual, benefits.”last_img read more

Begich Campaigns Removes Controversial Crime Scene Ad

first_imgThe campaign of Sen. Mark Begich has taken down a controversial TV ad entitled “crime scene” that began airing Friday. The ad featured a retired Anchorage police officer who says Republican Senate candidate Dan Sullivan let sex offenders off with light sentences.Download Audio“One of them got out of prison, and is now charged with breaking into that apartment, murdering a senior couple and sexually assaulting their 2-year-old granddaughter.”It essentially blames Sullivan for the 2013 crime, because he was attorney general when the suspect cut a plea deal for a prior crime that resulted in a short sentence. Sullivan immediately responded with a rebuttal ad, calling the Begich ad shameful and unfounded.“The failure that led to Active’s release occurred before I even became Attorney General,” Sullivan said.The double murder case hasn’t yet gone to trial, but the Department of Law previously acknowledged the suspect would probably still be in prison if it were not for a mistake when he was sentenced for a prior crime. The department found a state prosecutor in 2010 relied on an inaccurate report of the suspect’s criminal history, resulting in a deal and a four-year sentence. Because the suspect had a prior felony, the sentence, by state law, should have been at least double that. Sullivan’s campaign says he bears no responsibility for the erroneous report. The Begich campaign counters by circulating an image of the 2010 plea deal that resulted in the short sentence. Sullivan was AG then, and his name is on the bottom of the document. Both campaigns took down their ads after a request by the victims’ family.last_img read more

Bill Filed To Promote Language Immersion

first_imgDownload AudioAt least 20 distinct Native languages are spoken in Alaska, and every year, the population of speakers gets a little smaller. A Golovin senator now wants to reverse that trend by encouraging immersion language charter schools in the state.Democrat Donny Olson introduced a bill on Friday that would create a special certification process for instructors of Native languages, so that it would be easier for them to teach in schools. He’s hoping to build on the success of legislation recognizing Alaska’s Native languages as official languages in their own right.“There is a continued interest, a continued momentum of issues like this that are coming to the forefront,” says Olson.While the bill would make it easier to set up immersion programs for any language, it makes specific reference to revitalizing endangered languages and providing an education consistent with indigenous cultures. The idea behind an immersion program is that students would be able to take all kinds of courses — like math and science — in a language other than English to help their fluency.The charter schools could be set up using already existing resources, serving as alternative curricula in brick-and-mortar schools that are already up and running. Olson hopes that such schools could be established in rural areas, like the one he represents. His own parents spoke Inupiaq to him when he was a child, and he would like his children to have a chance to learn the language as well.“The idea that they could do something like that — I think it could make the daddy proud,” says Olson.Bethel already operates a Yup’ik immersion school. Foreign language programs exist in Southcentral including a Spanish program in Wasilla and a number in the Anchorage School District.last_img read more

Soon There Could Be Light Bulbs That Recycle Their Own Heat

first_img A team of researchers from MIT announced Monday that they have developed a novel method to make conventional incandescent lights far more energy efficient. Incandescents, the ones with the white hot filament in the middle, are notorious energy hogs because they generate massive amounts of waste heat in addition to light.The MIT team, which published their findings in Nature Nanotechnology, wrapped the filament of their bulb in a new kind of crystalline filter that allows visible light to escape but reflects infrared light back towards the filament. Reflecting these IR wavelengths back to the filament keep it hotter (and therefore burning brighter) while consuming less electrical energy. The bulb is only at the proof-of-concept stage right now but the prototype reportedly is already roughly as efficient as many of the CFL and LED selections currently on the market.
