Year Abroad students asked to confirm they are safe

first_imgAn email sent shortly after 3pm GMT by the Modern Languages Faculty Year Abroad Team has asked all Year Abroad students, whether they are living in Paris or not, to reply to the email to confirm that they are safe.This follows the terrorist attacks in various locations around Paris last night in which at least 128 people have been killed and an estimated 300 injured.The email states, “Following the appalling terrorist attacks in Paris last night, we are writing to everyone on their Year Abroad, to ask you to contact us immediately on receipt of this message (simply by using reply) to let us know both your own whereabouts and of anyone you know who may be in Paris now. We are obviously concerned about the safety of all our students, which is why we are asking everyone to contact us. We wish particularly to be reassured that those in Paris are safe and have not been directly affected. Those of you in Paris will no doubt have already contacted your families, but it is important for both the Faculty and for your Colleges to hear from you.”It goes on to say “We will also be happy to assist you with any questions or worries you may have. At present we do not consider that there is any reason to consider leaving France, as the French authorities appear to be taking all appropriate steps to ensure public safety, but we will keep you informed should there be any change.”Year Abroad students in France are also being advised to read the official guidelines of the French (http://www.interieur.gouv.fr) and the British (https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/france) governments.It has since also been confirmed that a recent graduate of the London School of Economics has been killed in the attacks.A march is expected to take place in Oxford from 5pm today “to show support for the victims of Paris, their families and their friends”, beginning outside the Radcliffe Camera. The Facebook event, entitled “Peaceful march for Paris” invites attendees to “bring candles, banners, and whatever you think is appropriate.”A further march of support has been planned for 2pm tomorrow, also meeting outside the Radcliffe Camera.A short service of prayer and reflection at Christ Church Cathedral has been organised for 8:30pm this evening, in light of the events in Paris.If you are seeking advice or have been affected by the attacks, you can call the UK Foreign Office on 020 7008 0000.

Mass brawl on Broad Street

first_imgApproximately 20 people took part in a fight at the junction of Broad Street and Magdalen Street this morning for reasons which remain unknown. A man in his thirties was taken to hospital with serious injuries after the fight occurred, and part of Broad Street was closed during the following hours of this morning.The man told the police he had been attacked by a younger man with dark skin and a beard, but there has since been no sign of the police finding this individual. This incident, reported as a crime, escalated into a large brawl around 3am. The seriously injured man was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital immediately afterwards, although his injuries were not life-threatening according to the police.The section of Broad Street where the events took place had to be kept closed until 11.30am, when staff were able to open the shops in the area. Among these shops were Boswell’s department store, the Varsity Shop, Fudge Kitchen and Cath Kidston. Michael Penfold, working on Boswell’s web team, told Cherwell, “We didn’t get a good look really – a good portion of Broad Street was sectioned off with police tape, and there was what I assume was someone from the forensics team pottering around taking photos of the crime scene itself.“The street itself looked completely normal with the exception of course of a lack of people, and a few of those yellow crime scene markers outside the store next door to the Fudge store or Cath Kidston. Boswell’s then opened around about 11:00 / 11:30am this morning.”The manager of the Varsity Shop, Laura Greenaway, described the scene in the same terms, highlighting the fact that curiosity was the main reaction to the events. “Broad Street was basically cornered off,” she said. “We were allowed in at half eleven and opened after that. My friend had told me about the incident before I arrived at the shop, and I just wondered what exactly had happened.”After being made accessible to the public again, Broad Street remained almost empty for the rest of this Good Friday. One Trinity College porter told Cherwell, “Not one person has mentioned it all day, it’s been very quiet” despite being very close to the location in which the brawl took place.last_img read more

Judge Strikes Lethal Injection Secrecy Law, Says Lawmakers ‘Overstepped’

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Dave Stafford for www.theindianalawyer.com The Indiana Department of Correction has again lost a suit in which it argues to keep secret the drugs it would use in a lethal injection. The judge in the case extraordinarily outlined how the DOC, the governor’s office, and the Indiana General Assembly appeared to directly undermine her order that the department disclose the drugs it might use in a potential execution.Marion Circuit Judge Sheryl Lynch on Thursday reaffirmed her prior ruling that the DOC must make public more information on the means it would use if an execution was ordered. But she also found unconstitutional on multiple grounds a law whose origins and motives were immediately questioned when it was slipped into legislation in the waning hours of the 2017 General Assembly session.The so-called Secrecy Statute declared confidential the drugs or chemicals DOC had on hand for a possible execution. It also effectively placed a gag order on anyone in the chain of custody of those drugs, including pharmacists. Lynch found the law, tacked onto the state budget bill and passed without Statehouse debate, clearly violated First Amendment freedom of speech protections along with many other federal and state constitutional protections.The judge’s order issued Thursday denied a DOC motion to modify her earlier order of summary judgment for Plaintiff A. Katherine Toomey. A Washington, D.C. attorney, Toomey had successfully sued the DOC, winning an order from Lynch that the department make public the drugs or chemicals that might be used if it was ordered to carry out an execution.But Lynch’s order also shed light on machinations between the DOC, Gov. Eric Holcomb’s office, and the General Assembly that resulted in the last-minute language adopted as law that apparently was in direct in response to her ruling.“Following the Court’s Ruling on Motion for Summary Judgment and during the five months the Department’s appeal was pending, the (DOC’s) Director of Legislative Services e-mailed the Governor’s Deputy Chief of Staff of Legislative Affairs. The e-mail attached the full text of the Secrecy Statute. On April 18, 2017, the Department’s deputy commissioner e-mailed the Governor’s legislative chief, saying, ‘[Name redacted] – I spoke with [name of Department’s legislative services director redacted] about this. I believe these [sic] version is substantially similar to the earlier draft, and should be helpful in resolving the Toomey case, and serve the other purposes …,” Lynch wrote in her order Thursday.“In passing the Statute while Toomey’s case was pending with the Indiana Court of Appeals and the Indiana Supreme Court, the General Assembly unconstitutionally took away the judicial power,” Lynch ruled. “The General Assembly does not have the authority to determine the outcome of pending litigation. As applied to this case, the General Assembly’s passage of the Statute overstepped its authority and violated the Indiana Constitution’s Separation of Powers by disturbing a pending case and upsetting this Court’s judgment.”Spokespeople from the governor’s office, the DOC and the Indiana Attorney General’s office, which represents DOC and the state in this litigation, did not immediately reply to messages seeking comment.Toomey, with representation from Indianapolis firm Plews Shadley Racher & Braun, began requesting information from DOC in May 2015 regarding the drugs it was holding should the state order an execution. There are currently 12 men who have been sentenced to death on Indiana’s Death Row, as well as one woman who’s housed in Ohio. No executions are currently scheduled, and several condemned inmates’ death sentences have been overturned on appeal.But DOC has vehemently fought requests and court orders to provide the information. The department appears to have instead relied on a strategy of passing a law that might nullify Lynch’s order.story continues belowBut the judge wrote that the Secrecy Statute, which was included as an amendment to the state budget bill — posted at 2 a.m. on April 21, 2017, in the session’s final hours — wasn’t just an unconstitutional violation of separation of powers. It also violated the state’s prohibition against special laws.“The Statute’s retroactivity clause violates the prohibition against special laws because it impermissibly applies to only one lawsuit by a single individual,” Lynch wrote. “According to the Department’s own records, Toomey is the only person who, at the time the Statute was conceived and ultimately enacted, had ever requested access to public records regarding the State’s lethal-injection drugs.”Lynch also ruled the statute violated the Indiana Constitution’s prohibition against single-subject legislation, and perhaps most significantly, First Amendment protections for anyone who chose to make public the means by which DOC might carry out an execution.“The broad language of the Statute is overreaching and violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and article 1, section 9 of the Indiana Constitution by censoring the speech of those individuals and entities … and their officers, employees and contractors and anyone else with knowledge of the identities of suppliers of execution drugs.“When a statute or court order prohibits the free flow of information and ideas, it is subject to a prior-restraint analysis. The Statute is an unconstitutional prior restraint. It forbids any speaker from responding to any request for confidential identifying information, even about themselves. This applies not only to the Department but anyone, even the outsourcing facility, wholesale distributor, pharmacy, or pharmacist themselves, as well as their officers, employees, contractors, and anyone they contract with.“This expansive prohibition on the right to speak on a matter of public importance is forbidden by the First Amendment. … Indiana may not constitutionally suppress all speech and information sharing on matters of public importance,” Lynch wrote.Plaintiffs’ attorneys say pharmaceutical companies and distributors are loath to have their products or names associated with executions. Many have forbidden their products from being used to carry out lethal injections.Against this backdrop, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled in February that the DOC did not need to go through a public rule-making process to develop an execution protocol. The DOC has not publicly identified the method of execution it would use if it was ordered to carry out the death penalty.Lynch’s Thursday order also set a hearing for Dec. 12 on the plaintiffs’ request for attorney fees that the state may have to pay the plaintiffs in this case. The judge stayed her order of Oct. 24, which ordered DOC to disclose information, until after the issue of attorney fees is decided.last_img read more

Saint Mary’s students celebrate College history

first_imgAs a continuation of the celebration of Heritage Week at Saint Mary’s College, students met for tea in Riedinger House, the residence for official friends of the College who visit campus. Tea was offered at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday. The event was restricted to 25 students per session, said Kara O’Leary, director of Alumnae Relations. Students were provided with fresh fruit and cookies, as well as soft drinks, tea and water. At the sessions, students had the opportunity to learn about Saint Mary’s College history, particularly about the Alumnae Association and Riedinger House. The event was part of Saint Mary’s College Heritage Week, which celebrates the history and founding of the College. O’Leary detailed the history of the creation of the Alumnae Association. “During the early days of the Association, the alumnae worked closely with the sisters, and then every two years [came] to visit with old friends and to watch the progress of the current students,” she said. O’Leary said the Association was the oldest Catholic women’s alumnae group in the United States. The group is the seventh oldest alumnae association for women’s colleges in the United States. The Alumnae Association began in June 1879 as a way for graduates of the College, then called Saint Mary’s Academy, to reunite. “The stated purpose was, ‘to preserve the bond of affection existing between our alma mater and her children,’” O’Leary said. Since that time, the Alumnae Association expanded and now includes more than 18,500 members with 60 different clubs, O’Leary said. O’Leary also said the Riedinger House played an interesting role in College history. “The house was built in 1939, and it was the practice house for Home Economics majors,” she said. Students lived in the house for a semester to learn how to manage a budget, plan meals, buy food, cook, keep house and entertain guests, O’Leary said. O’Leary said the house was named after Adaline Crowley Riedinger, the first alumna to have her daughter graduate from Saint Mary’s College. “The Riedinger family donated the major portion of the funds for the construction of the house,” she said. According to O’Leary, the interior of the house was designed on 7/8th scale in order to save money during construction. The house cost around $21,000 to build, with $4,500 used for equipment such as the refrigerator, sewing machine and stove. The house now houses official guests of the College when they visit campus. Sophomore Meghan Feasel gave students a tour of the house. Events continue throughout the week including the Heritage tour and tour of the convent at noon and 2 p.m. and Moreau Dinner held in the Nobel Family Dining Hall from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 pm. Wednesday. The Heritage Dinner will be held in Stapleton Lounge in Le Mans Hall from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Thursday, and s’mores and a meet-and-greet with the Sisters of the Holy Cross will take place at 2 p.m. in the Lillie O’Grady Room Friday. Heritage week will conclude with the All School Formal on Saturday.last_img read more
