Verizon workers ready to strike

A sea of red T-shirts flooded the streets, while those wearing them roared with anger in front of Verizon’s corporate headquarters in Manhattan on July 25. Some of the shirts read “I can’t calm down, I need a contract,” “Will strike if provoked” and “We walked before, we’ll walk again,” referring to a 2011 strike.The estimated crowd of 12,000 union members and allies, representing 39,000 fixed-line and FIOS workers in nine states from Maine to Virginia, were rallying to tell the giant telecommunications company that they’re ready to strike if they don’t get a better contract offer by the time the current one expires at midnight on Aug. 1.Why strike? The contract Verizon brought to the bargaining table June 22 contained significant, deal-breaking cuts: decreases in pension benefits, huge increases in workers’ medical costs, unlimited reassignment of job locations, elimination of job security and expanded outsourcing of jobs — on top of an existing two-tier wage system for new hires.No wonder that 96 percent of members of the New England Council of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers voted on July 17 to strike, while the Verizon East district of the Communication Workers voted by 86 percent to strike during the week of July 20.Speakers at the rally included CWA President Chris Shelton, who blasted management for trying to rob workers of their retirement. He ended a rousing speech with the chant: “Ready to fight and ready to win!” Barbara Bowen of the Professional Staff Congress at City University of New York and Secretary-Treasurer Earl Phillips of Transit Workers Union Local 100 gave solidarity messages and offered their support for a strike.Caesse Villegar, a Black sister representing Cablevision workers, talked about how CWA and IBEW had stood with them during the three-year battle they eventually won and now Cablevision workers would stand by Verizon workers.Verigreedy lives up to the workers’ nickname for Verizon. Listed 15th in this year’s Forbes Fortune 500, the company raked in $29 billion in net income in the last five years and $4 billion in just the last quarter. The five top executives have been rewarded handsomely, with a total of $44 million in annual salary and bonuses in 2014. They will never have to worry about their retirement.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more

Milwaukee community supports youth uprising against cops

first_imgMilwaukeeSolidarity with youth fighting police terror was strong at an informal gathering in Sherman Park here on Aug. 21. The park was the location of a youth uprising in protest of the killing of Sylville Smith, an African-American man, by Milwaukee police on Aug. 13.The Wisconsin Bailout the People Movement initiated the community picnic to support the courageous youth being vilified by both corporate media and city officials for demonstrating anger against Smith’s death. The Milwaukee protesters were met with an aggressive police force, like the police reaction to protests in Baltimore after the police killing of Freddie Grey in 2015 or in Ferguson, Mo., against that of Michael Brown in 2014. As in the those cities, instead of dispersing, youth decided to act in self-defense, allegedly answering police aggression by throwing objects at the cops and setting fire to a BP gas station next to the park.Homes were also burned. However, Babbette Grunow, who co-hosts a radio program in Milwaukee and lives near the park, voiced on-the-air skepticism about placing responsibility on youth protesters. She noted that one landlord had previously spoken of the benefits of collecting insurance money instead of continuing ownership of the homes.Those gathered at the community cook-out all agreed that the anger of the youth was justified. Meeting at the park were activists from Bail Out the People Movement, union members, an NAACP member, youth from the Industrial Workers of the World, as well as neighborhood families. Members of Workers World Party came in support from Durham, N.C.; Rockford, Ill.; and Los Angeles and from Detroit FIST (Fight Imperialism, Stand Together).People were in agreement that the best way to change the youths’ reaction was to get the police to stop killing Black people, and instead of budgeting more money for cops, use money to provide jobs and opportunities for youth.The event was also a speak-out for the community, as people shared the microphone to denounce injustice they had personally experienced from police. One Black youth, who appeared to be around 11 years old, told this writer, “The police came up to me while I was just sitting in the park and put a gun to my head.”Many people spoke about the need to reopen Sherman Park for the youth. After the rebellion, the police enforced a 6 p.m. curfew. They surrounded the park with an orange plastic fence, a constant reminder of yet another resource denied to the Milwaukee community, which already suffers from one of the highest unemployment and incarceration rates in the U.S.A Black man in his twenties, who is a volunteer at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee located in Sherman Park, said, “We bought all of these materials, videos and things for the kids that we can’t use now because of the curfew. We used to have movie nights and activities for the kids and would make sure that everyone was out of the park by 10 p.m. There were no fights or problems, and it provided something for them to do.”He described how he found out how strict the curfew was: “My daughter had an asthma attack and I needed to get home quick, so I had to walk through the park. A cop told me to walk all the way around, but I refused to listen to that bulls–t and kept on walking.” Luckily, he wasn’t arrested for trying to save his daughter’s life.Gilbert Johnson, former president of American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees Local 82, talked about how ironic it was that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said he wanted to improve Milwaukee, but then closed down a rail manufacturing plant providing local jobs and keeping community businesses functioning. After that, Walker went after public sector unions. “The only union that should be abolished is the police union,” Johnson said, stressing the need to organize and support the youth to defeat police terror in the community.Caesar Crayton, a Black gay youth and member of IWW’s Milwaukee Chapter, said, “I’m here standing in solidarity with our youth and letting them know that we have a voice and we should not be afraid to use it. We are gonna stand up and fight back when we are under attack. This is our park and we are taking it back!”In the spirit of those words, the last activity of the picnic was to symbolically reclaim the park by placing placards on thosevery same orange fences meant to deter the community. The signs stated: “Disarm and Abolish Cops and National Guard,” “Resistance Is Justified from Milwaukee to Palestine,” “Parks Are for the Youth, Not Cops,” and more. The community was continuing its steadfast “No!” to violent police aggression aimed at the Black and Brown youth of Milwaukee.Parker, a leader of the Los Angeles Branch of WWP, is the Peace & Freedom candidate for senator in California.

Indiana Presents Leadership Workshop at AFBF Convention

first_img INFB leadership workshopOne of the workshops conducted at the recent American Farm Bureau convention was a fun workshop focused on leadership and conducted by Julie Taylor, the Education Coordinator at Indiana Farm Bureau. It might have been all fun and games, but it was aimed at adults wanting to explore self-leadership and leadership of others.“The presentation is Leadership, it’s all Fun and Games. It’s based around the toy box leadership book that was used in the Leaders in Action program with Indiana Farm Bureau for the last several years. In the presentation we’ve got several different activities going on, a self awareness activity with drawing a picture that they can’t see, hot potato and listening and not being afraid of making decisions, and then four different toy discussions on how toys teach leadership skills to children and how we can translate that on in to our adult life.”Taylor was to present the workshop with Dr. Julie Klarich, Director of Affiliate Relations at IFB Insurance, but she could not make the trip. The national convention was their first time presenting and the workshop is available now in Indiana.“She has used the Leaders in Action program and the toy box leadership book for the last several years, so she’s done quite a bit of this, and I was in the pilot class for Leaders in Action, so I went through it with her and they’ve done some staff development too. if a county or a district or another organization would be interested in having us come and present then just call or email and we’ll try to work it out.”Contact Julie Taylor at [email protected] Indiana Presents Leadership Workshop at AFBF Convention SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Presents Leadership Workshop at AFBF Convention SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jan 20, 2015 Previous articleIndiana Regional Dairy Meetings SetNext articleNew Growth Market for US Ag, Not Where You Would Expect Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Offshore Leaks: data journalism challenges powerful hidden interests

first_img RSF_en April 4, 2013 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Offshore Leaks: data journalism challenges powerful hidden interests Organisation Following today’s publication of findings from the analysis of millions of leaked documents about offshore companies and tax havens, Reporters Without Borders hails the journalistic investigation of leaked data troves and the major progress it represents in the emergence of a journalism capable of confronting powerful hidden private sector interests“The conjunction of whistle-blowers and investigative journalists acting as democracy watchdogs makes it possible to challenge a skilful network of secrecy with often planetary ramifications,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “These new transparency tools will help to combat the embezzlement of public funds, the fraudulent acquisition of fortunes and corruption.”Just as Reporters Without Borders saw the positive effects that the WikiLeaks revelations had on the fight against repressive regimes, so it now welcomes the work that has been carried out by the Washington-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) with funding from the Centre for Public Integrity.The findings published today by 38 news organizations around the world were based on 15 months of research and analysis of more than 2.5 millions leaked files. The work was led by the ICIJ’s network of investigative journalists and mobilized more than 86 journalists in 46 countries.The Swiss daily Le Matin said the leaked data, which includes emails, contracts, passport photos and accounts, contains information about more than 122,000 offshore companies and trusts linked to at least 130,000 people in 140 countries. center_img News Help by sharing this informationlast_img read more

Press freedom fears put to George Bush and President Barroso ahead of Moscow visits

first_img News May 9, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Press freedom fears put to George Bush and President Barroso ahead of Moscow visits Organisation BelarusEurope – Central Asia BelarusEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders has expressed concern about mounting press freedom violations in Russia since Vladimir Putin became president in letters ahead of their visits to Moscow on successive days of George W. Bush and the President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso. Help by sharing this information RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” May 28, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders expressed concern at mounting press freedom violations in Russia since President Vladimir Putin took power, in letters to US President George Bush and European Commission President José Manuel Barroso, due to meet the Russian president successively on 9 and 10 May.The worldwide press freedom organisation urged the two men to raise in talks with Putin the issue of “the absence of pluralism in news and information, an intensifying crackdown against journalists, leading to widespread self-censorship and the drastic state of press freedom in Chechnya”.”No fewer than 17 journalists were physically attacked and three others threatened in 2004 alone. Two journalists were assaulted in March 2005. Violence against journalists constitutes the most serious threat to press freedom in Russia.””Several journalists have been murdered in recent years. The murder of Paul Khlebnikov, US citizen and editor of the Russian edition of Forbes magazine, as he left his office on 9 July 2004 has yet to fully elucidated.” Reporters Without Borders told President Bush that the organisation had “reservations about the rigour and the impartiality of the current investigation”. “We expect Russian prosecutor-general Vladimir Yustinov to establish the whole truth about this murder, for which two suspects who have been extradited from Belarus are expected to go on trial this July. It is to be hoped that those who instigated this odious act will be quickly identified and punished”.Reporters Without Borders “is still hoping for some solid progress in the investigation into the murder of Alexey Sidorov. The 31-year-old journalist was stabbed by two men in the parking lot of his apartment block in Togliatti, west central Russia on 9 October 2003. He died shortly afterwards in the arms of his wife. Sidorov had succeeded Valery Ivanov, murdered in similar circumstances on 29 April 2002, as editor of the newspaper Toliattinskoye Obosrenie.”To date the Russian government has taken no steps to see that the guilty of murder are identified and punished. This spiral of violence that is taking place with complete impunity can only encourage a policy of terror towards the press and force journalists to practise self-censorship,” the organisation added in its letter to the President of the European Commission. Reporters Without Borders also pointed out that “there was still no news about Ali Astamirov correspondent in Ingushetia for Agence France-Presse (AFP) who was abducted on 4 July 2003.” The organisation urged José Manuel Barroso to intervene with Putin to get the Russian authorities to undertake to do everything possible to shed light on his disappearance. It also stressed the “shocking absence of pluralism in the broadcast sector and the recent disappearance of Russia’s independent media”.The press freedom organisation welcomed the adoption by the European Parliament on 28 April of the annual report on human rights worldwide in 2004. Its Article 38 expresses Europe’s concerns about “extension of de facto government control over most TV stations” and the real risk of seriously threatening “the existence of alternative sources of information”.The European Parliament, in Article 37 of this report, “strongly urges Russia to allow humanitarian organisations, reporters and human rights observers to have free access to Chechnya”.The Council of Europe (of which Russia is a member) said on 3 May that “Security-motivated censorship will only serve the cause of the terrorists.” René Van der Linden, President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) called on the organisation’s 46 member states “to refrain from adopting unnecessary restrictions on the free flow of information under cover of the fight against terrorism”.

Das Projekt liefert reale Verkehrsdaten von komplexen städtischen und ländlichen Kreuzungen im Alpenraum in Österreich. Diese Pressemitteilung enthält multimediale Inhalte. Die vollständige Mitteilung hier ansehen: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210222006021/de/ Zusammen mit dem Helius-Smart-Lidar-System von Cepton installierte ALP.Lab Vista-P60-Lidar-Sensoren an Kreuzungen und Kreisverkehren in Österreich. ©ALP.Lab Als Partner von Automobilzulieferern wie Magna und AVL sowie von wissenschaftlichen Organisationen wie Virtual Vehicle Research, Joanneum Research und der Technischen Universität Graz liefert ALP.Lab reale Daten zu komplexen Verkehrssituationen, um die Fähigkeiten autonomer Fahrsysteme zu testen. Das Unternehmen trägt so dazu bei, Lösungen zu finden, die Unfälle reduzieren und den Verkehrsfluss verbessern. Von engen, nebligen und schneebedeckten Straßen bis hin zu Radfahrern, die mitten auf einer Kreuzung eine Straßenbahn überholen – durch die bergige Landschaft ist Österreich mit vielfältigen Verkehrsszenarien konfrontiert, die einzigartige Herausforderungen für die Sicherheit von Fahrzeugen und Fußgängern bergen. Solche schwierigen Verkehrsszenarien können zudem auch Hindernisse für den nahtlosen Einsatz von autonomen Mobilitätslösungen darstellen. Eine realistische Datenbasis verschiedener Fahrszenarien ist daher von zentraler Bedeutung für das Testen und Verifizieren von Fahrerassistenzsystemen (ADAS) und autonomen Fahrzeugen (AVs), um sicherzustellen, dass sie auch in komplexen Umgebungen gut funktionieren. Im Rahmen dieser neuen Partnerschaft setzt ALP.Lab das Helius™ Smart Lidar System von Cepton zur Erfassung von 3D-Verkehrsdaten in Echtzeit ein. Die Lidar-Daten unterstützen das Training von KI-Algorithmen, die für szenariobasierte Tests von ADAS- und AV-Funktionen verwendet werden. Darüber hinaus dienen die gesammelten Daten zur Vorhersage von Fahrzeugtrajektorien an Kreuzungen sowie zur Analyse von Verkehrsdaten für die Optimierung des Verkehrsflusses. Zusammen mit dem Helius-Smart-Lidar-System installierte ALP.Lab einige Vista-P60-Lidar-Sensoren von Cepton am Rand von Straßenkreuzungen und Kreisverkehren. Diese ergänzen nun weitere Sensortypen wie Radar und andere Arten von optischen Sensoren. Im Rahmen von Anwendungen zur Verkehrsüberwachung und -analyse leisten Lidar-Systeme in vielen kritischen Fällen gute Dienste, in denen andere Sensortypen Schwierigkeiten haben. Lidar-Systeme können dank ihrer hervorragenden Detektion bei verschiedenen Lichtverhältnissen rund um die Uhr eingesetzt werden – beispielsweise bei Nacht, im Schatten oder wenn starke Scheinwerfer blenden. Sie bieten außerdem eine höhere Winkelauflösung im Vergleich zu Radar-Sensoren und reduzieren die Anzahl falsch negativer und falsch positiver Ergebnisse. Die Vista-P60 Lidar-Systeme, die auf der patentierten Micro-Motion-Technology von Cepton basieren, verfügen zudem über eine hohe Reichweite von 200 m bei 30 Prozent Reflektivität sowie einer Winkelauflösung von 0,25 Grad. So erfassen die Lidar-Sensoren jedes ankommende und abfahrende Fahrzeug und jeden Fußgänger in einem Abstand von bis zu 170 Metern um die Kreuzungen herum. Die fortschrittliche Helius-Erfassungssoftware verarbeitet die Lidar-Daten des Vista-P60 und ermöglicht so intelligente Analysefunktionen. Helius verarbeitet die Punktwolkendaten aus dem Netzwerk der Vista-P60-Sensoren und liefert in Echtzeit 3D-Informationen zu Objektabmessungen, Positionen und Geschwindigkeiten. Dadurch kann Helius die verschiedenen Objekte, die an einer Verkehrssituation beteiligt sind, genau verfolgen und klassifizieren. Da Helius und die anderen Sensoren, die ALP.Lab verwendet, nur anonymisierte Daten erfassen, wird die Privatsphäre von Fußgängern und Fahrzeugen geschützt. Gleichzeitig erhält ALP.Lab aussagekräftige Verkehrsdaten für tiefergehende Analysen. Das Helius Smart Lidar System ist optimiert für eine einfache Integration. Dank des spiegellosen, dreh- und reibungsfreien Designs sind die Vista-P60-Sensoren sehr langlebig und leicht zu verbauen. Das Sensorgehäuse ist so konstruiert, dass es rauen Außenbedingungen und kaltem Klima standhält, was die Sensoren robust und langlebig macht und zudem die Wartungskosten senkt. Mit der vorinstallierten Helius-Software, die auf einem Edge-Computer läuft und das skalierbare Netzwerk der Lidar-Sensoren verbindet, ist Helius ein Plug-and-Play-System, das sich einfach einrichten und skalieren lässt. „Wir haben die Lidar-Lösungen von Cepton in erster Linie wegen ihrer Langlebigkeit und präzisen Detektion ausgewählt, die selbst bei hohen Fahrzeuggeschwindigkeiten akkurate Ergebnisse liefert. Dank der Informationen der Lidar-Sensoren sind unsere Daten so realitätsnah wie möglich. Dadurch können wir verbesserte Simulations- sowie ADAS- und AV-Testumgebungen und detaillierte Analysen des Verkehrsflusses erstellen“, sagt Christian Schwarzl, Director of Testing and Validation von ALP.Lab. „Zwischen Cepton und ALP.Lab ist eine erfolgreiche Synergie entstanden, da wir das gleiche Ziel verfolgen: Wir wollen ADAS- und AV-Funktionen für den Massenmarkt zugänglich machen und die Sicherheit von gefährdeten Verkehrsteilnehmern verbessern.“ „Lidar spielt eine entscheidende Rolle in der Zukunft der autonomen Mobilität: Lidar-Sensoren fungieren nicht nur als ‚Augen‘ der Fahrzeuge, sondern ermöglichen auch intelligente Anwendungen im Rahmen der Verkehrsinfrastruktur, um sicheres autonomes Fahren zu unterstützen. Um ADAS- und AV-Fähigkeiten der breiten Öffentlichkeit zugänglich zu machen, ist es entscheidend, Informationen über Verkehrsszenarien zu sammeln, mit denen alle Fahrzeuge konfrontiert sein werden. Nur so können wir geeignete Testumgebungen schaffen und für sicherere Straßen sorgen“, sagte Dr. Jun Pei, CEO von Cepton. „Daher freuen wir uns über die Zusammenarbeit mit ALP.Lab und darüber dass unsere Technologie maßgeblich zum Erfolg des Projekts beitragen kann.“ Über Cepton Technologies, Inc. Cepton bietet hochmoderne, intelligente, auf Lidar basierende Lösungen für eine Reihe von Märkten, darunter autonomes Fahren, ADAS, Smart Cities, Smart Spaces und industrielle Anwendungen.
