Syracuse, N.Y., tenants on rent strike

first_imgSyracuse Tenants United held a march, rally and press conference June 1 to announce that a group of Syracuse Quality Living tenants will continue their rent strike into June.The SQL is a major landlord in the Syracuse University area. The 10 SQL tenants withholding rent have experienced infestation, mold, lack of heat in the winter and maintenance personnel entering their apartments without notice.Tenants marched to the company office and read prepared statements to the press and supporters. An SQL employee called police on the lawful gathering, and three police cars arrived shortly after.“It is evident that SQL doesn’t care about the well-being of its properties, maintenance staff, or especially its tenants,” said Isaiah Nins, a rent-striking tenant, following the event.The tenants plan to withhold rent until management meets their dire habitability needs or voids their leases.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Woman veteran of Long March, Wang Dingguo ¡presente!

first_imgWang Dingguo, the oldest female veteran of the Chinese Red Army’s Long March, died at the age of 107 on June 9. (China Daily, June 11)When Wang was 20 years old in 1933, she joined the Chinese Communist Party after running away from a five-year marriage she had been sold into.The next year, she joined the Fourth Red Army Front and went on the Long March from October 1934 to October 1936. Red Army soldiers marched 6,000 miles through the rough Chinese countryside to combat the Kuomintang regime and flee Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist Party army. Wang was one of only 30 women among the 86,000 men on the Long March.Wang fought in battles with Nationalist Party troops and endured freezing Chinese winter conditions that caused her to lose a toe to frostbite. She reflected on the Red Army forces marching at night: “The line of torches looked like a long dragon with flames. They lit up the winding roads. For me, I saw hope.” (tinyurl.com/y7a5bb9b)Wang was part of a theatrical troupe designed to raise troop morale. The troupe marched ahead of the troops, then caught up with them after all had passed, marching the same route twice. (tinyurl.com/y7l5q5s4) She was in charge of the troupe’s props and makeup, as well as serving as a fighter.At the end of the march, Chinese communists set up a new base at Yan’an in the isolated mountains of northern Shaanxi. It was here, during the next 10 years, that the Chinese Party developed their constitution based on Marxism-Leninism and where they solidified the leadership of Mao Zedong.In 1959, Wang became a member of the Supreme People’s Court, the highest court in mainland China. In 1964, she became a secretary in the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. She retired in 1993.Wang Dingguo’s long militant life is a testament to the power and determination of the young communists who fought for and built what has become one of the most powerful and rapidly developing countries.(Photo credit: China Daily)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Pasadena Completes State Mandated Stress Test Measuring New Water Conservation Target

Jerry Brown mandated through Executive Order B­37­16 issued on May 9.To complete the test, urban water suppliers like PWP must determine the anticipated potable water demand for the next three water years equal to the average demand for calendar years 2013 and 2014. A water year is from October 1 to September 30.In a report to Interim City Manager Steve Mermell, PWP Interim General Manager Shari Thomas said the stress test determined that Pasadena will need an estimated 32,678 acre­feet of potable water annually for the years 2017, 2018 and 2019 based on this formula.PWP also must determine its potable water supplies based on current supply conditions and assuming a three­year hydrology that mirrors the 2013 to 2015 water years. For the Stress Test calculations, Thomas said PWP will apply a conservative water supply estimate of 10,964 acre­feet per year.Analyzing these data and considering supplies that will be delivered by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California to PWP, Thomas said the Stress Test results showed that PWP does not anticipate a supply shortfall for the utility.“With the new water efficiency framework in place, the State is able to sunset the mandatory conservation target,” Thomas said, adding that although a mandatory target is no longer required, PWP will continue to encourage continued conservation.This month, PWP will submit a proposal to the City Council’s Municipal Services Committee to consider changes to the city’s Water Waste Prohibitions Ordinance, Thomas said.

ECISD board approves request to notify TEA about entering partnership for IR schools

first_img WhatsApp WhatsApp By admin – February 13, 2018 Pinterest Twitter Twitter Local News Facebook Facebook The Ector County Independent School District Board of Trustees approved a request to notify the Texas Education Agency that the district may enter into a contract with a third-party on improvement required schools.Supplemental agenda material said “while the district does not to commit to whom we are partnering and we may determine later not to partner with anyone, we must submit the attached Letter of Intent to keep this option open.”ECISD has eight campuses on improvement required status under state accountability standards. Ector Middle School and Noel and Zavala elementary schools are in their fifth year of improvement required. If they do not come off the list, they will face closure or the Texas Education Commissioner will appoint a board of managers over the whole district.The board also approved a local campus partnership application, so the district can access the benefits under Senate Bill 1882, which allows for the partnerships. Trustees have previously heard a proposal from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin to make Ector Middle School and Zavala in-district charter schools with a science, technology, math and engineering focus.Other possibilities mentioned in the application are Odessa College and Texas Tech University. The action was taken during a board work study session Tuesday.On a separate item, trustees discussed an agreement for the construction and lease back of a Boys and Girls Club to be located adjacent to Edward K. Downing Elementary School and results of a YouthTruth Student Survey.Trustees also heard a presentation on a possible new solar project near Penwell and the process of applying for ERATE funds to revamp the district’s fiber network.Chief Operations Officer David Morris said the club will be an 8,000-square-foot facility that will be leased back to the district for $1 a year for 30 years.David Chancellor, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of the Permian Basin, said the club would serve youngsters in West Odessa and can become a hub for four schools in that part of the county.Chancellor said the building, paid for through donations, will cost $1.6 million and have a $400,000 endowment. He said they are about $80,000 short right now, but everyone has said yes to the project.The hope is to break ground this summer and have the facility completed by this time next year, Chancellor said. It will have a capacity for about 150 youngsters, but will serve about 500 students a year.Superintendent Tom Crowe said the club would use the Downing Elementary gym.On a separate item, Crowe reviewed highlights of the YouthTruth Student Survey, conducted in November 2017.The executive summary said the survey covered students’ perceptions of their school in terms of student engagement, academic rigor, relationships with teachers, relationships with peers, school culture, college and career readiness and academic support services. Students also provided feedback about student motivation, the summary said.Crowe said the response rate was 50 percent. He added that this will be a three-year process and campuses will pick out one or two things that would improve their school.Jason Garewal, director of project development from a firm called 174 Power Global Corp. and Kirk Glasby of corporate tax consulting firm DuCharme McMillen & Associates introduced themselves to the board.The item was discussion of conducting a public hearing on the application of the Oberon Solar Project for an appraised value limitation on qualified property, under Chapter 313 of the Texas Property Tax Code.The Texas Comptroller’s website said an appraised value limitation is an agreement in which a taxpayer agrees to build or install property and create jobs in exchange for a 10-year limitation on the taxable property value for school district maintenance and operations tax purposes.The minimum limitation value varies by school district, the site said.The application for a limitation on the appraised value for maintenance and operation purposes is submitted directly to the school district and requires an application fee that is established by each school district, the site said.The board’s final determination of the application can only be made after a public hearing is conducted, supplemental agenda material said.

Five dead in apparent murder-suicide at house, nursing home in Texas

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(ROBSTOWN, Texas) — Three people were found dead at a nursing home in south Texas after police responded to calls of an active shooter at the location. Further investigation found two more people dead at a related location, police said.Police reported to Retama Manor Nursing Center in Robstown, Texas, a small town about two hours south of San Antonio, at about 7 p.m. local time for reports of a shooting, according to the Robstown Police Department. Upon arrival, three people were found dead, including the shooter, according to Robstown Chief Administrator and City Secretary Herman Rodriguez. Two men and one woman were pronounced dead on arrival, police said.Robstown police called the threat “neutralized” in a release.Authorities later found two more people — both men — dead at the suspect’s home in Robstown, according to San Antonio ABC affiliate KIII-TV.Rodriguez told KIII-TV that he could not release further information about how the shootings transpired. A new conference is expected to be held Saturday afternoon, city officials said.Authorities said the investigation into the murders is ongoing and few details would be shared out of respect for the family involved. Rodriguez said he was “flabbergasted” by the situation.“Anything that we would state at this point at such an early time in this tragedy would be speculation, and we definitely don’t want to speculate,” Rodriguez told KIII-TV. “This is a profound incident that doesn’t really transpire here too often in Robstown. We’ve got to keep the empathy of the family; this is a small town here in Robstown.”Retama Manor Nursing Center was described by police as a medium-sized for-profit nursing home with 94 beds. The company operates a number of nursing homes in south Texas.“Current information will remain scarce because we are looking at a murder investigation and not compromising anything that might impede that investigation,” Robstown Police Chief Erasmo Flores said in a statement. Texas Rangers will assist in the murder investigation.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

HR’s role in pensions debate

first_imgHR’s role in pensions debateOn 1 Sep 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Pensions redrawnIt is difficult amid the many complex issues still being thrown up by the pensions debate to see exactly what HR’s role is in all this.The message so far from all the experts is simplification. But the task facing HR is anything but simple. There has already been industrial and legal action from employees who sense their pension rights eroding. Steel workers at the Caparo Merchant Bar factory in Scunthorpe introduced an overtime ban when their final salary scheme was closed while Ernst & Young have had to bring out the big legal guns over proposals to switch from a final salary to a money-purchase based defined contribution scheme after their employees objected. Handled incorrectly, changes to any benefits could constitute a breach of employment contract, or at least a breach of the employer’s duty of trust and confidence (see analysis, page 12). Changes to pension schemes will also require extensive – and meaningful – consultation under the new laws headed this way from Europe.But of course there is more to this than the letter of the law. Occupational pensions are at the very heart of the psychological contract between employer and employee. It’s clear that much more thought is going to be needed on how that contract should be rewritten and then communicated to workers, if recruitment and retention strategies are not to be wrecked. What exactly does the employer undertake to deliver if not future financial security? What can it expect in return? These are the questions that could make mere legalities look very trifling indeed.Not only that, but as the role of the employer in pensions provision continues to change, HR will have the job of making staff aware of the options available for securing their futures. Will we see HR departments becoming financial advisers? Will access to such services have to become a cornerstone of employee benefit policies?Yet again, for HR practitioners it comes down to communication and consultation – issues that some in business still see as soft, yet which are at the core of the productivity conundrum this country has yet to crack.Heather Falconer, Editor [email protected] Comments are closed.

Disability: Access to Work grant rises by a third

first_img Reply Talent.A skill few posses. Society is so bound up with CVs littered with lists of Skills and Knowledge, Qualifications and Experience. So why shouldn’t those with less conventional ‘entry’ qualifications just demonstrate their talent?It’s usually organic – and something that just can’t be just learnt. Priceless. Previous Article Next Article Some disabled employees are to receive a 36% increase in Access to Work grants to assist them at work from next month.From 1 April 2018, people can claim up to £57,200 annually to help pay for additional support in the workplace –£15,000 more than the current cap of £42,100.Access to Work provides financial support to ensure someone’s disability or health condition doesn’t hold them back at work, and can cover workplace adaptations, assistive technology, transport and interpreters.Increasing the amount people can receive annually will ensure that more disabled people, particularly from the deaf community, are able to benefit from the grant and achieve their career aspirations.Work and pensions secretary Esther McVey said: “By extending this grant we’re ensuring that many more disabled people can reach their career potential, which is a key part of our commitment to getting one million more disabled people in work by 2027.”A statement from the UK Council on Deafness said: “This will help deaf people whose first language is British Sign Language (BSL) to access the communication support so vital to enabling them to thrive and succeed in the workplace.”The Government aims have one million more people with a disability in work by 2027. In a statement it said it would introduce the following measures:discretion in exceptional cases of multiple disability, to consider award limits averaged over a longer period – for example, where a person’s ongoing need for a support worker may be below the cap but when coupled with a periodic need for say a wheelchair, would exceed the cap in that year;introduction of managed personal budgets to enable greater choice and control for customers in the way grants are spent;taking applications 12 weeks ahead of a job start date rather than the current six weeks to allow more time for support to be agreed and put in place;continuing to invest in our digital improvements such as developing the facility to submit invoices online;allowing more flexibility in how people can use Access to Work to support short periods of work experience where there is a likelihood of a paid job in the near future.However, campaign group Inclusion London described the cap as inappropriate and discriminatory. “Any cap hits those with the highest support needs, effectively penalising deaf and disabled people with the highest support needs and impacting most on certain impairment groups.”It said the new cap is still a fixed limit set in an entirely arbitrary way. Costs for specialised equipment and interpreters tailored to individuals’ needs can exceed this amount or vary from year to year.“There is no financial reason for a cap given that investment in Access to Work makes a return on investment to the Treasury through taxes, without taking into account the added cost benefits of savings to the NHS or social care budgets,” it added.Speaking at an event to drive awareness of autistic talent, Sarah Newton, minister for disabled people, health and work, said the Government wanted to encourage employers to access much-needed talent, particularly those potentially facing skills shortages post-Brexit.“It’s important that everyone has the ability to reach their full potential. We have record levels of people in employment but still plenty of job opportunities. It’s not acceptable that there are so many talented people that with some support could be in employment,” she said. Fiona Flaherty 21 Mar 2018 at 11:08 pm # Related posts:No related photos.
