AG Curtis Hill Announces Expansion Of Human Trafficking Investigations Unit

first_img As the nation marks Human Trafficking Awareness Month, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill today announced the expansion of the Office of the Indiana Attorney General Investigations Division’s Human Trafficking Investigations Unit (HTIU).The HTIU works to:raise public awareness of human trafficking;educate Hoosiers on how to address human trafficking in local communities;collaborate with schools, teachers and students to spread knowledge of at-risk factors and recruitment techniques – and how to report warning signs;alert employers and businesses in industries prone to human trafficking to the signs and effects of this crime; andwork with county prosecutors and law enforcement at all levels — local, state and federal — to fight these crimes affecting communities statewide.The Attorney General is assigning additional investigators and attorneys to this unit who possess extensive law enforcement experience. They include former police officers and prosecutors, all of whom who will provide educational, investigative and prosecution support to private and public agencies throughout Indiana. Beyond catching and prosecuting criminals, the unit also aims to prevent the occurrence of further human trafficking activity and the suffering it brings to individuals and communities.“The predators engaging in this deplorable criminal activity need to know they will be sought out, captured and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said Attorney General Hill. “Victims trapped in this illegal enterprise who are desperate for a better way of life need to know there is help and hope.”The National Human Trafficking Resource Center can be reached at 1-888-373-7888. The organization lists tips on its website intended to help citizens recognize possible warning signs of human trafficking so they can notify authorities anytime they believe they have spotted victims in need of aid.Human trafficking — whether labor trafficking or sex trafficking — is one of the largest and fastest-growing criminal industries in the world, just behind the drug trade. In the United States, statistics suggest 71 percent of labor trafficking victims entered the United States on lawful visas. Further, 83 percent of sex trafficking victims are U.S. citizens. Both forms of human trafficking recruit from marginalized groups: labor trafficking from immigrant populations and sex trafficking from women and children. The typical age of children pulled into commercial sex is as young as 12 to 14. Research indicates that individuals who have been previously traumatized as children or adults are at an increased risk for re-victimization, exploitation and other manipulation.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Getting their hands on science

first_imgThe excitement was palpable at Gardner Pilot Academy (GPA), as students, teachers, parents and special guests gathered last month in the auditorium of the community elementary school in Allston for a momentous event. It was a day, in fact, that principal Erica Herman had waited nearly a decade to see.On this special morning, Herman, along with several young GPA scholars, Boston Public Schools Superintendent Tommy Chang, and Harvard officials cut the ribbon on the school’s new state-of-the-art science laboratory — a vision brought to life with a $500,000 donation from Harvard University.“Over the last 10 years we have been working on how to transform unused basement space to create a school that is ready for the 21st century,” said Herman. “We wondered how we would get the money, and thanks to the tremendous commitment from Harvard University in seed funding, we were able to not just do one small project but hugely transform the basement.”The academy is an inclusion school in the Boston school system that serves nearly 370 students from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. During the summer, the basement of the 100-year-old building on Athol Street was gutted for the construction of the new lab. The renovation gives middle school students an opportunity to learn science in an environment that allows hands-on participation.The Harvard grant enabled construction of the lab space — including epoxy-resin counters and work surfaces that are resistant to water, heat and chemicals, which lets students and teachers to use certain materials for lab work and demonstrations. The funds also paid for whiteboards, tables, chairs, four in-room sinks (including one with handicap access), storage, and a recycled composite flooring for easy clean-up.The donation, announced in 2015 from Harvard Community Benefits, is part of a cooperation agreement with the City of Boston. The agreement supports professional development for teachers, gives students direct access to Harvard programs, and helps with after-school programs at the academy.“It was an honor and a privilege to visit with students and staff at GPA, and to help dedicate the school’s new science lab,” said Paul Andrew, vice president of public affairs and communications at Harvard. “Harvard has a valued, longtime partnership with the GPA, and it was terrific to see how the transformation of this space has sparked such enthusiasm among students and teachers, enhancing the strong culture of learning that permeates the GPA.”The renovations focused on the students’ educational needs, Herman said. The team met with parents and community representatives to ensure the enhancements met the highest standards, she said. The result — paid for with funding from Harvard, Boston Public Schools, grants, school-based fundraising and private donations — was an up-to-date science lab ready for use on the first day of school in September.“It’s been a great collaboration that we will continue to nurture, learn from and grow with,” said Chang. “Thank you to all the teachers who make the magic happen here and to Harvard who has helped make this place tick. Every single time I’m here I’m just amazed by the work these young people are producing. You are helping ensure they are prepared for college and for life.”Artur Shehu (from left), Gerardo Umaru, Illyanis Santiago, and Victoria Coll, all GPA students, enjoy their new science classroom with their teacher Marcus Penny. Kris Snibbe/Harvard Staff PhotographerNearly 100 students utilize the science lab daily, including several who attend after-school programs. Daunty Geovanny Martinez, 13, an eighth-grader from Boston, said he hopes to become a pharmacist one day and thinks the science lab will help him do well in college.“I use the science lab every day and I love it,” said Martinez. “Before we always had restrictions on what we could do with science, now everything is so much better. I feel like I’m learning more.”Marcus Penny, a middle school science teacher at GPA, said what makes the science lab so special are the amenities that help students access the curriculum at a deeper level.“It’s amazing what can actually be done to turn unutilized space in a school into an extremely fruitful center of learning,” he said. “We also have deep gratitude for the partnerships that can help us move forward to help students on the ground-level. We have functional results students can use right now.”More than 70 percent of students at Gardner Pilot Academy are from Allston-Brighton. The school offers a wide range of services including before- and after-school programs, health and counseling services, an on-site health clinic, tutoring and mentoring to students and their families, and adult-education programs. To address the growing needs of the community, over the past four years the academy expanded from a K-5 program to one that offers pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.Lauren Lafferty, director of extended services at GPA, said the additional students and the expansion of programs created the need for critical improvements to the century-old facility.“We have an incredible faculty dedicated to supporting the whole child but we have been in a gap,” she said. “We need both faculty and students to have access to high-quality, 21st-century resources and materials, as we know this is connected to success in college, career, and beyond.”Alexandra Montes McNeil, E.D., the instructional superintendent supporting the GPA and 14 other schools in the Boston school system, has a special connection to GPA. Her mother, Catalina Montes, was the principal there for more than 20 years, and her brother attended the school.“I’m very excited about this. My mother’s vision while she was principal was that this was a community school, so she laid that foundation and Erica has worked so hard to help further that vision. It’s amazing,” said McNeil, a former science teacher. “My mother cried when she saw the science lab, Erica took it beyond her wildest imagination.”The ceremony took place in conjunction with Give the Gift of Reading, which brings together community members and GPA students to honor and celebrate the value of reading and education. Guest readers including members of Boston Public Schools administration, Harvard staff, and Senator William N. Brownsberger visited classrooms to read aloud to students before the ribbon-cutting. This was the sixth Give the Gift of Reading event in over nine years.“The kids love The Gift of Reading and it’s a great way to pull together our greater Gardner Pilot community and show people what we are all about, especially with the amazing renovation of the science lab,” said Ashley Baima, first grade learning specialist at GPA.Herman said Gardner Pilot Academy intends to keep the expansion going. The science lab was phase one of their capital improvement project, and Herman is already working on phase two — adding a full-service kitchen and renovating cafeteria space to expand the school’s meal program.“None of this would be possible without the tremendous commitment from Harvard University who really gave us the foundation funding to make all the visions seem possible,” she said. “It’s a true partnership.”last_img read more

Ryan Sessegnon: Tottenham player reveals he received racist abuse online | Football News

first_imgRyan Sessegnon has become the latest footballer to reveal he has received racist abuse on social media.Sessegnon received the abusive messages on Monday night, shortly before the offending profile was removed from Instagram.- Advertisement – Everyone at the Club is with you @RyanSessegnon. We are proud of the rich ethnic diversity that exists across our communities, fans, staff and players. We are driven by inclusion and equality for all and nobody should have to endure such repulsive abuse.— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) November 3, 2020 His parent club have since offered their support on Twitter.“Everyone at the Club is with you Ryan Sessegnon,” Tottenham’s official Twitter account said.“We are proud of the rich ethnic diversity that exists across our communities, fans, staff and players.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – “We are driven by inclusion and equality for all and nobody should have to endure such repulsive abuse.”The England Under-21 international moved to Tottenham from Fulham for £25m in the summer of 2019, but was allowed to seal a temporary move away from the club following Sergio Reguilon’s arrival. In July, Crystal Palace’s Zaha called for ‘action and education’ and after he too was subjected to racist messages before a match against Aston Villa. – Advertisement – He has now joined the likes of fellow footballers Raheem Sterling, Wilfried Zaha and Troy Deeney who have also spoken out about the racist and threatening abuse they have received on social media.Last month, Watford’s Deeney openly questioned whether social media companies have the desire to eradicate abuse and argued they may even benefit from a drive in traffic when incidences of racism occur.

CDC, Aventis announce allocation plan for flu vaccine

first_imgOct 12, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – To cope with the loss of nearly half of the nation’s influenza vaccine supply, federal health officials and Aventis Pasteur announced plans today to distribute Aventis’s 22.4 million remaining doses to those who need them the most.”Beginning immediately, about 14.2 million doses of vaccine will be allocated over the next 6-8 weeks through Aventis Pasteur contracts directly to high-priority vaccine providers, including hospitals, long-term care facilities, nursing homes, and private providers who care for young children,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in a news release.In a second phase later, about 8.2 million doses will be shipped to “other high-need areas,” the CDC said. “This plan will help ensure that vaccine gets to those people who need it the most,” CDC Director Julie Gerberding, MD, MPH, said in the release.The plan follows last week’s announcement that about 48 million doses of flu vaccine from Chiron Corp. will not be available this year. The British government shut down Chiron’s plant in Liverpool last week and stopped the shipment of doses to the United States because of contamination problems in the plant. The Chiron vaccine would have constituted nearly half of the projected US supply of 100 million doses this year.Last week the CDC recommended that healthy people from ages 2 through 64 not get flu shots so that the available doses can be saved for the high-risk groups, including the elderly, babies aged 6 to 23 months, people living in nursing homes and long-term care facilities, people with chronic medical conditions, pregnant women, children on chronic aspirin therapy, and healthcare workers directly caring for patients.In a news briefing today, Gerberding said the CDC estimates that between 42 million and 50 million people are in the high-risk groups and will request vaccine. “This year we won’t be able to get vaccine to all of them. . . . There may be some people who may not be able to get vaccine who really need it.”Because of the shortage, she urged people to take normal precautions against flu and to seek treatment immediately if they get sick. She said the CDC is stockpiling antiviral drugs such as oseltamivir (Tamiflu) in the hope of using them to blunt the effects of the vaccine shortage.”We’re sorry that people who want vaccine may not be able to get it. We appreciate everyone’s help in pulling this together,” Gerberding said.Also in the news briefing, Aventis Pasteur US President Damian Braga said about 15 million of the company’s 22.4 million remaining doses have been committed to customers. Of those 15 million, 11.8 million were already scheduled to go to high-risk customers, he said. “We’re hoping that with some cooperation from our customers, the actual disruption to our customers will be at a minimum,” he added. The company has produced a total of 55.4 million doses this year, he said.Gerberding said the CDC is “working aggressively to map out where influenza is by county” and also mapping the delivery of doses and need for vaccine by county. “So what we’ll end up with in a few days is a comprehensive picture of who needs vaccine and where it is,” she said.Gerberding said the CDC is relying on the “honor code” to enforce compliance with the recommendation that vaccine doses be saved for people in high-risk groups. This has worked in the past, and “so far we have good evidence that it’s working this time too,” she added.She noted that a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) team is still in Britain checking to see “if there are any safe doses of vaccine that can be acquired from Chiron at this time.”In other developments, the pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) said yesterday it was exploring the possibility of selling its Fluarix flu vaccine in the United States, according to a Reuters report. The vaccine is sold in 70 countries but not in the United States, because the company decided in 1992, when it launched the product, that the US market was overcrowded.A GSK official told Reuters that the company was talking with the FDA about the possibility of getting approval for the sale of Fluarix this season. But most of the company’s supply is already committed to other customers, leaving only around 200,000 doses available for new buyers, the report said.See also:Oct 12 CDC news release read more
