The Notre Dame Coalition for Human Dignity formed this semester with the goal of fostering communication among clubs working on issues of human dignity, as well as raising awareness of the work these clubs do on campus. Freshman organizer Matt Caponigro said the coalition derives its strength from the cohesion and spirit of cooperation shared among its member groups. “We thought that maybe if we started a dialogue with each other that we could help each other to move forward on some of these human dignity issues, to be more effective and reach out to more people,” he said. Caponigro said the Notre Dame Coalition for Human Dignity was founded as a passionate answer to a heartfelt request from Father Jenkins. “The coalition is our response to Father Jenkins’ call to make this university a healing, unifying and enlightening force in a world that’s deeply in need,” he said. “That has been our rallying call.” Caponigro said the coalition is inspired and driven by Notre Dame’s special status as a university focused on social concerns issues. “We at [Notre Dame] have a unique calling, especially among other universities, to do some real good for our brothers and sisters to start serious dialogue about human dignity issues,” he said. Caponigro said the coalition hopes to become a powerful advocate for human dignity by bringing together a diverse spectrum of clubs and individuals from across campus. “We want to build a coalition that bridges the gap between students, administrators and faculty members so that we can be truly effective in restoring human dignity to all people,” he said. The coalition has already grown to include organizations such as Right to Life and the Black Student Association, and hopes to further expand as it becomes better organized, Caponigro said. He said the coalition is empowered by its diverse membership, but this diversity can complicate its ability to make unified decisions. “The coalition revolves around partnership, sitting down at the table and talking about what we’ve been working on,” he said, “But it’s tricky, because there are a lot of different people at the table.” In the future, the coalition hopes to host a signature event before the end of the year to raise awareness and encourage student participation in the fight for human dignity, Carponigro said. “We’re hoping to do something like a concert on South Quad that brings everybody together, that shows our classmates and the rest of the Notre Dame community that we really do care about human dignity issues,” he said. Caponigro said he is excited for the coalition to forge closer bonds with Notre Dame as it matures and expands as an organization. “We’re looking forward to developing stronger relationships with the administration and with our peers so that we can really work together as a unified front,” he said.

On May 22, 2020, NPS officials announced heavy rain created multiple road hazards in the Roanoke, Virginia, area of the Parkway that required a road closure from milepost 112.4 to milepost 135.9, from U.S. Route 24 to Adney Gap. Access to Explore Park via the Parkway Restored from the North Two road hazards in the sections that remain closed, at milepost 119.7 and milepost 127.9, require significant reconstruction and slide prevention measures prior to reopening. Repairs at the smaller of these slides (milepost 119.7) will take place first, in an effort to reopen the section from the Explore Park Access Rd (milepost 115.5) to U.S. 220 (milepost 121.4) by fall of 2020. National Park Service (NPS) officials announced yesterday that a section of the Blue Ridge Parkway from Milepost 112.4 to Milepost 115.5 is now open providing access to Explore Park from the north. This section is the northernmost portion of a larger closure put in place in late May after multiple landslides in the area. Access to Explore Park via the Parkway remains closed from the south, and through traffic on the parkway south of Explore Park (milepost 115.5) remains closed to Adney Gap (milepost 135.9). Closures South of Explore Park Remain The largest hazard is a full road failure roughly one hundred and fifty feet (150′) in length at milepost 127.9. This complex road failure will require a longer-term closure for repair, and the estimated timeline for these repairs is still in development. Visitors are reminded that, due to the hazardous nature of this slope failure, the section of parkway from U.S. 220 (milepost 121.4) to Adney Gap (milepost 135.9) is closed to all uses including motor vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians.
LocalNews Modernization blamed for shortage of priests in Dominica by: – January 12, 2012 15 Views no discussions Share Sharing is caring! Share Bishop of Roseau His Lordship Gabriel Malzaire. The changing society and challenges facing young people are among reasons given for what the head of the catholic community say is a shortage of priests on the island.Bishop of Roseau His Lordship Gabriel Malzaire reported this week that there is a shortage of priests affecting the region and Dominica is no exception.“Before most social activities happened around the church so it was easier for a young person to be attracted by church things. Today the average young person is bombarded by so many things, they have so many options, and it is becoming more and more difficult for a vocation environment to be created,” he explained.The Bishop said there are several implications of a shortage of priests in Dominica.“It means that it puts additional strain on the workload of the priests available. If you have a big parish for example Vieille Case where there are six mass stations, for one priest to get into all those communities and give enough attention to people as they deserve,” he explained.That shortage has also affected one seminary in Trinidad which had to close its doors and refer students to the Dominican Republic for training.Dominica Vibes News Share Tweet
Share Sharing is caring! LocalNews Court rules against Defence team’s “no case submission” by: – February 16, 2012 Share Tweet Court gavel. Photo credit: lazytechguys.comJustice Bernie Stevenson-Brooks has ruled against the Defence team’s no case submission in the trail to determine whether Kenrick Tyson murdered Cecil James.The trial began on Monday and the Court heard from the former girlfriend of the accused that they both waited in a “shack” outside of the deceased home on the 9th of May, 2009. When the deceased arrived home the accused allegedly struck him on his head three times with a 2” x 4” piece of wood. He was found on May 10th, 2009 on his bed half naked with the bed linen soaked through with blood.On Wednesday the prosecution closed its case after having called 8 witnesses to testify including the former girlfriend of the accused Nasha Daniel.At the close of the prosecution’s case the defence team comprising of Wayne Norde, Bernadette Lambert and Ronald Charles led by Wayne Norde made a no case submission.Norde’s submission was based on the fact that the prosecution did not lead sufficient evidence before the Court as to the cause of death of Cecil James.He told the Court on Thursday morning that his submission was based on two limbs; that the prosecution did not prove the actus reus meaning the commission or act of omission which must be a voluntary act that causes the damage or harm.His second basis for making a no case submission is that the prosecution did not “provide an inch of evidence as it relates to the cause of death of the deceased Cecil James”.“Very critical in this case is that the prosecution has not produced through any of its witnesses how the deceased died. The prosecution has failed to prove that any act of the accused caused the death of the deceased.”Norde went on to highlight sections of the case the Queen vs Eston James in which the Court ruled that “the cause of death is critical in cases of murder” and also that “the prosecution has the duty to prove that the accused caused the death of the deceased”.He said the body of Cecil James was discovered, an autopsy was conducted as indicated by Inspector Romain Riviere but the prosecution did not furnish the Court with the contents of that report or a pathologist to provide evidence as to the cause of death.He urged the Court not to allow this “level of laid back, lackadaisical procedure” noting that if this is accepted by the Court.Norde submitted therefore the prosecution had failed to establish that the accused caused the deceased’s death.However the Prosecution team led by the Director of Public Prosecutions Gene Pestaina along with Clement Joseph and Arthurlyn Nesty refuted these arguments stating that “the acts of the accused accounted for the death of the deceased”. According to him; “there is no evidence that the deceased fell off his bed and knocked his head, the evidence is consistent with the uncontroverted evidence of an eye witness and the prosecution’s main witness Nasha Daniel.He explained that while it is a factor that the cause of death in a murder trial is required it does not mean that if the prosecution does not provide a medical or scientific cause of death that a murder was not committed.Justice Bernie Stevenson-Brooks did not uphold the submission by the Defence and stated that “there was sufficient evidence on the issue of causation which was produced and that a jury properly directed could make a decision on the evidence presented”.

Oldenburg, In. — Since 1999, the month of May has been designated as Military Appreciation Month. During this time, Americans across the country honor servicemen and women who’ve sacrificed and dedicated their lives to protect our freedoms.During the 2018 legislative session, the Indiana General Assembly passed several bills that benefit the military members living in Indiana, which were recently signed into law by Gov. Eric Holcomb.House Enrolled Act 1047 allows members of the military on active duty or called to active duty during an academic term to re-enroll in an uncompleted course or receive a refund or credit at state educational institutions.Senate Enrolled Act 96 extends the Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Pilot Program until 2020. This program assists in providing diagnostic testing and hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) to veterans. HBOT is a medical treatment commonly used to treat carbon monoxide poisoning, divers’ sickness, enhanced healing of some wound problems, skin grafts, heat burns and crush injuries.Senate Enrolled Act 262 requires the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles to issue a permanent parking placard to a disabled veteran when requested.I believe the General Assembly’s work will help improve the lives of our servicemen and women, both during and after their service.Click here for more information on Military Appreciation Month.

Modified driver Jerry Flippo of Bakersfield, Calif., leads the current Junior National Champion standings.
Midfielder Aaron Ramsey has backed Arsenal to bounce back from their Manchester City mauling. The Gunners remained top after their 6-3 loss at the Etihad, but they head into the weekend knowing if results go against them they could be as low as fourth should they lose to Chelsea on Monday. Ramsey feels the defeat has done no permanent damage though. “I don’t think it has shaken us,” the 22-year-old told the Daily Mail. “To concede that many goals was disappointing for the team, especially when we’ve defended so well this season. We still created a lot of opportunities and we could have had six goals as well. “We’re also still top of the league, and therefore in a great position. “We’ve dropped a few points in the past couple of games and we are still top, and that just shows what a good start we’ve had. Hopefully we’ll learn from this little blip and put it right as soon as possible.” Press Association
