Oregon city stops jailing poor who cant pay court debts

PENDLETON, Ore. — The eastern Oregon city of Pendleton has stopped jailing people unable to pay fines, a city official said, following the settlement of a federal lawsuit contending city officials were running a debtors’ prison.The East Oregonian reports in a story on Saturday that city attorney Nancy Kerns said city court officials recently adopted new policies that ban the use of jail time for fines arising from minor violations.“No person shall be incarcerated for the inability and lack of financial resources to pay financial obligations to the Court, including fines, costs and restitution,” the policy states.The policy also requires the city court to consider defendants’ ability to pay and appoint attorneys to indigent defendants who face jail time.Anglea Minthorn spent nearly two months in jail in 2017 for owing about $1,000.She sued in early 2018, contending the city was violating the U.S. Constitution by incarcerating a debtor unable to pay the debt.Minthorn’s “experience is not unique,” the lawsuit said. “It is a reflection of how defendants operate a modern-day debtors’ prison in which people who cannot afford to pay court-imposed fines arising out of minor violations are arrested, incarcerated, and fined further.”The lawsuit described Minthorn as a low-income person with disabilities who struggled to get stable housing, medical care and food. The lawsuit said she was hospitalized for 74 days in 2016 because of stroke-like symptoms.Minthorn did not contest a 2014 judgment against her and afine for $873. The lawsuit questioned why the amount of that fine later rose to $2,493 with no reason given.Ultimately, the city settled with Minthorn in April, agreeing to pay her $130,000.Minthorn received about $80,000. Legal Aid Services of Oregon, a non-profit civil legal program that provides access to legal help, received $45,000. Some $4,300 went to a trust to administer the settlement payments, and the city received $1,033 for Minthorn’s outstanding fines.“This lawsuit should put all of Oregon on notice to take a look at their practices on this,” said Sarah Armstrong of the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon.___Information from: East Oregonian, http://www.eastoregonian.comThe Associated Press read more

Burlington Baller Mfiondu Kabengele drafted in first round

Burlington’s Mfiondu Kabengele was the last of a record four Canadians taken in the first round of the NBA draft.Kabengele was selected 27th by the Brooklyn Nets but was traded soon after to the Los Angeles Clippers. That should be a positive for Kabengele, he will get to pair up with Hamilton native and rising star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.It was a meteoric rise for Kabengele who didn’t play basketball seriously before he was discovered during an elementary school track meet at Sherwood park in Burlington. International Basketball and Sports Academy coach and Dundas-native Barry Mungar who was an NBA draft pick and played for team Canada at the 1988 Olympics helped develop Kabengele.“When he hit his growth spurt, he took off like a rocket,” said Mungar. “He went from six-foot-three to six-foot-nine in a relatively short period of time and that was kind of what put him over the top.”Kabengele won the Ontario Basketball Association Championships with the Hamilton Wildcats and a Catholic Cup title with Corpus Christi Catholic Secondary school. After that, Kabengele went to prep school in Chicago and earned an NCAA scholarship to Florida State University.“It feels amazing,” said Kabengele. “You work your whole life for this and have my family and friends and everybody watching at home supporting me. I’m just very grateful.”One key person who is supporting Kabengele is NBA hall-of-famer Dikembe Mutombo, his uncle. read more

Man City crowned Premier League champions after emphatic Brighton victory

first_imgMan City crowned Premier League champions after emphatic Brighton victory Pep Guardiola’s side were too good for Chris Hughton’s men. Share9 Tweet Email 120 Comments City had not conceded in their previous four games, but Brighton were playing on their nerves as they sought revenge for defeat in their FA Cup semi-final last month.Ali Jahanbakhsh flashed a shot just wide of Ederson’s right-hand post before the moment that was celebrated as wildly 270 miles north at Anfield as it was on the south coast.Pascal Gross’s dangerous in-swinging corner was powered home by veteran striker Murray at the near post on 27 minutes.This was the first time City had failed to score first in a league game since early December and the first time they had trailed at all in the 14-game winning run that has carried them to the title.However, Brighton’s lead and Liverpool’s hope lasted just over a minute.- Aguero leads City recovery -Aguero scored the sensational last-gasp goal that ended City’s own 44-year wait for the title in 2011/12 and his goals have been a constant of their now four Premier League triumphs in eight seasons.4 – Manchester City have won their fourth Premier League title – only Manchester United (13) and Chelsea (5) have ever won more in the competition.

La baleine au menu une pratique dépassée

first_imgLa baleine au menu, une pratique dépassée ?Depuis des semaines maintenant, des militants poursuivent les navires japonais partis en campagne de chasse à la baleine. Si cette pratique est très ancienne, de nombreux pays l’ont abandonné. Pourtant, le Japon se bat pour maintenir cette tradition qu’il poursuit “au nom de la recherche scientifique”. L’homme chasse la baleine depuis des dizaines voire des centaines d’années. Il a ainsi appris à utiliser de multiples manières ces cétacés, se nourrissant de leur chair, utilisant la graisse pour faire du maquillage, des produits pharmaceutiques, de la peau pour fabriquer du cuir, de l’huile pour le chauffage… Face à une telle “poule aux œufs d’or”, le Japon a dès les années 1970, étendu son territoire de chasse à la baleine dans les eaux sud-coréennes, russes et australiennes. Cette initiative a d’ailleurs provoqué une guerre avec la Russie qui a fini par capituler et céder en quelque sorte son territoire maritime au géant de la chasse baleinière. Mais en 1982, l’affaire prend un nouveau tournant. La Commission internationale pour la réglementation de la chasse à la baleine décide d’interdire la chasse dite commerciale. Une mesure adoptée par la majorité des pays membres de la CBI et rejetée par le Japon entre autres.En 1987, le pays finit toutefois par accepter le moratoire mais démarre en parallèle un programme de recherche scientifique sur les cétacés dans l’Antarctique (JARPA). Le but avancé est alors de collecter des informations sur la structure des stocks et la biologie des baleines. C’est d’ailleurs ce programme qui permet encore aujourd’hui au Japon d’organiser sa campagne annuelle de pêche à la baleine, grâce à l’article 8 de la CBI qui donne le droit à ses membres d’émettre des permis spéciaux de chasse scientifique. Mais de nombreux écologistes estiment que l’aspect scientifique ne serait en fait qu’une couverture.  Une activité en déclin dans le monde Le Japon entend donc, par cette manipulation législative, poursuivre l’objectif fixé par la CBI d’assurer “la conservation judicieuse de l’espèce baleinière et, partant, de rendre possible le développement ordonné de l’industrie baleinière” en continuant sa chasse afin de recenser les stocks restants. Quant à l’utilisation de la viande de baleine, le pays la justifie en expliquant que c’est la CBI elle-même qui exige dans son règlement que les spécimens chassés soit utilisés autant que possible.Aujourd’hui, il reste quelques adeptes de la chasse à la baleine dans le monde, comme l’Islande et la Norvège, mais l’activité semble en déclin. Toutefois, cette quasi-unanimité ne convainc toujours pas le Japon. Ainsi, le dernier bastion de la chasse à la baleine au Japon, la ville portuaire de Shimonoseki, se bat pour garder ses traditions, dont les plats conçus à base de ces cétacés. “La pêche à la baleine fait encore travailler plus de 6.000 personnes ici et de nombreux habitants la considèrent comme un loisir. Nous sommes déjà le premier port de pêche à la baleine au Japon mais nous visons la place de numéro un mondial”, a déclaré le maire de la ville. De la baleine au menu des cantines scolaires À lire aussiCes 18 animaux méconnus à l’aspect étonnant pourraient disparaître avant vousA Shimonoseki, la situation est ainsi clairement expliquée : c’est seulement pour ses qualités gustatives et nutritionnelles que la baleine doit être vénérée. Cité par le Courrier international, un restaurateur de la ville témoigne : “les grandes pêcheries ont disparu après le moratoire, mais mon père a estimé que les petits commerçants, eux, pourraient continuer d’exister. La culture de la pêche à la baleine utilise toutes les parties de l’animal, c’est une des raisons pour lesquelles je veux maintenir cette tradition”. Une tradition qui revient même aujourd’hui dans les cantines scolaires de la région.Cette année, le Japon prévoit de ramener de l’Antarctique 900 petits rorquals et rorquals communs. Mais les militants qui traquent actuellement les baleiniers japonais comptent bien les empêcher d’accomplir leur oeuvre. L’an dernier, ils ont tellement harcelé les navires que le Japon a fini par interrompre sa campagne. D’après le président de l’association Sea Shepherd, les militants ont réussi à sauver près de 3.000 cétacés au cours des dernières années.Le 22 janvier 2012 à 11:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Solskjaer discusses bringing the best out of Pogba

first_imgManchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes rattling Paul Pogba is key to bringing out the best from the Frenchman.United continued their 100 perfect start to life since Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker manager in December following their 2-0 win against Newcastle United at St James’ Park.Pogba has been one of the most improved players since the Norwegian took over, with the World Cup winner scoring four goals and creating three assists in his last four games for the Red Devils.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.Solskjaer believes tapping into the aggression of the former Juventus star which was on display against the Magpies after being fouled by Jonjo Shelvey, has helped him rediscover his form for United.“You need to rattle Paul Pogba at times to get him going; he has been immense for us,” Solskjaer said, according to Standard.United face a tough game after their FA Cup third round tie at Reading on Saturday when they travel to Wembley Stadium to face high-flying Tottenham Hotspur.last_img read more

Buyout Window Closes Layoffs Loom at Time Inc

first_imgWednesday was the deadline for representatives of the Newspaper Guild to notify Time Inc. brass about how many staffers accepted buyout offers as the company looks to eliminate as many as 500 from its overall workforce.Time Inc. is expected to begin slashing jobs as early as next week. The number of cuts will depend on how many volunteers stepped up for the buyout packages. I was told today by a company spokesperson, not unexpectedly, that Time Inc. won’t be disclosing the number of employees who accepted the buyouts.The New York Post’s Keith Kelly has a relatively detailed outline of how the layoffs might play out: The publisher’s biggest magazines (Time, People, Sports Illustrated, Fortune and Money) could eliminate 90 editorial positions—as many as 40 possibly coming from Fortune. During a recent earnings call, Jeff Bewkes, CEO of Time Inc. parent Time Warner, said the company will incur a $100 million charge during the fourth quarter as it begins a restructuring of Time Inc., primarily in respect to its news group. He said the restructuring will be “more targeted” in comparison to the massive changes that were made this time last year, resulting in around 600 layoffs.And about those layoffs last year: They were made department-by-department, instead of happening all at once as part of a collective announcement. News of more and more and more layoffs were unveiled in slow motion. We saw the same thing happen this fall at Condé Nast. Following the closure of Gourmet, Cookie, Elegant Bride and Modern Bride, hundreds of layoffs happened, but were announced at a painfully slow pace, over several weeks. It must have been a killer for employee morale. (In fact, morale hit such an “all-time low” the company reportedly hired a crisis intervention expert.)As Time Inc. gears up for its latest wave of job cuts, I hope, for the sake of its staffers, that the axe falls swiftly and that workers aren’t paralyzed, waiting for days and weeks for the final word about whether they will remain employed.last_img read more

first_imgTo promote the cultural heritage and weaving skills of Indian hand-made carpets and other floor coverings amongst the visiting overseas carpet buyers, the Carpet Export Promotion Council is organising its 34th India Carpet Expo (13th in Varanasi) at the Sampurnanand Sanskrit University Ground, Varanasi, under the aegis of Government of India.
