In wake of sex-abuse scandal, USA Gymnastics hires 2 experts to ‘protect athletes’

Posted by on 5:09 pm in Press Release | 0 comments

INDIANAPOLIS – After a year of controversy involving sexual abuse of young athletes, USA Gymnastics has added two people to its senior staff who will oversee “athlete protection.”

Toby Stark will serve as USA Gymnastics’ director of safe sport and will lead a department focused on protecting athletes, said a USA Gymnastics press release. She is former executive director of Chaucie’s Place, an Indianapolis-area child advocacy organization focused on child sexual abuse and youth suicide prevention.

Stark will oversee, coordinate and communicate all aspects of USA Gymnastics safe sport policies, guidelines, educational programs, reporting and adjudication services, as well as report safe sport matters to the Board of Directors, the press release said.

Mark Busby, who handled child abuse and sex crime cases while with the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, will provide supporting in-house legal counsel.

He will handle all information provided to USA Gymnastics about potential abuse, direct any required investigations and coordinate cases with the U.S. Center for SafeSport, as needed.

Based in Indianapolis, USA Gymnastics is the national governing body for gymnastics in the United States. 

In August 2016, the Indianapolis Star published an expose detailing how USA Gymnastics turned a blind eye to accusations of sexual abuse by coaches. That led several former gymnasts to step forward with allegations of sexual abuse by Dr. Larry Nassar, then a Michigan State University sports-medicine doctor who also served as USA Gymnastics’ chief medical officer for almost 20 years. 

What you need to know about the Nassar controversy

Nassar, who was fired by MSU in September 2016, is now facing 33 charges of criminal sexual conduct involving nine women, all but one who are former patients. Those charges are pending in Michigan’s Ingham and Eaton county courts. 

Nassar also pleaded guilty this month to federal child pornography charges. He is awaiting sentencing in that case.

More than 100 former patients, many of them former USA Gymnastics athletes, have filed lawsuits against Nassar. Most of those lawsuits also name MSU and USA Gymnastics, saying those organizations ignored red flags in Nassar’s behavior.

What’s next in Nassar case

Steve Penny, CEO of USA Gymnastics, resigned March 16 amid allegations that his organization did not do enough to protect gymnasts against sexual abuse.

In June, USA Gymnastics released the results of an internal investigation that found the organization lacked proper policies and procedures to report allegations of sexual abuse to law enforcement.

The board agreed to adopt 70 recommendations in the report, including a ban on adults from being alone with minor gymnasts, including sleeping in a hotel room. Adults will also be prohibited from having out-of-program contact with gymnasts via email, text or social media.

Al Mezan Joint Press Release: Zero Accountability

Posted by on 3:23 pm in Press Release | 0 comments

In July 2014, Israel began a military assault on the Gaza Strip, including an indiscriminate bombing campaign and a brutal ground invasion. In total, the assault killed 1,545 Palestinian civilians, including 556 children, and made 11,166 families homeless.

Three years on, no justice has been attained for victims and survivors of the attack. While 500 Palestinian complaints were filed with Israeli military courts over the 2014 Gaza war, only three soldiers were convicted as of August 2016, for minor felonies such as credit card theft. Military commanders and politicians — those most responsible for the massive loss of life — were never held accountable for their role in violations of International Law and International Human Rights Law.

The sole legal recourse for Palestinians in Gaza is the Israeli military court system, a kangaroo court run by the same military which carried out the attack. As the Israeli human rights organization B’tselem explains, “the military is more likely to lose track of a file altogether than to press charges based on a file.”[1]

Visualizing Palestine, Al Mezan Center for Human Rights, and Adalah The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights have produced a series of visuals to mark the third anniversary of the 2014 attack on Gaza. All the data is sourced from research conducted by Al Mezan on the ground in Gaza during and in the aftermath of the attack, and re-verified in the year following the attack.

Over the next 50 days, Visualizing Palestine will intermittently release a series of visuals highlighting the crime and impunity of Operation Protective Edge.

Press Release: Antigua reportedly in line for net speeds of up to 800Mbps

Posted by on 3:23 pm in Press Release | 0 comments

PUNTA CANA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC–(Marketwired – Jul 17, 2017) – At the 33rd CANTO Annual Conference Trade Exhibition, John Reid, CEO of CW Communications (CW), announced that CW has completed a groundbreaking pre-5G (fifth generation wireless broadband technology) trial in Antigua. Once installed, Antigua will be the first country in the region with the most advanced pre-5G network, delivering download peak speeds of up to 800 Mbps. In the trial’s next phase, the Company expects to test a 5G prototype reaching 2 to 5 Gbps peak speeds, which will have a profound positive impact on the island.

The announcement came as part of Reid’s keynote address today to prominent Caribbean officials at the 33rd CANTO Annual Conference Trade Exhibition in the Dominican Republic. “These are exciting times for CW Communications, as we continue to invest and develop more pioneering innovations to meet the needs of our customers and enable growth in the region through transformative technology,” said Reid. “This pre-5G trial in the Caribbean, is a significant step towards the evolution of CW’s mobile networks across the region to 5G, and providing Gigabit speeds to our customers in Antigua,” he continued.

CW’s pre-5G technology trial, a combined effort with parent company Liberty Global, is based on LTE Advanced Pro (LTE-A Pro), the latest LTE evolution, that delivers lower latency, more capacity and improved reliability for customers. This translates into a faster mobile internet experience where customers can better participate in advanced technology such as richer video experience and new apps.

In early October, the Company will further test a 5G prototype network designed to deliver wireless data connections above 2 Gbps. If the trials are successful, and the business case favorable, the Company plans to invest another $5 million in Antigua alone to significantly upgrade the wireless infrastructure there. CW has invested $1.5 billion in the region over the last three years.

5G is a new set of standards beyond traditional 4G/LTE technologies. This set of standards will allow operators to deliver wireless data connections above 1 Gbps and to enable the Internet of Things (IoT). CW’s pre-5G trial and 5G prototype trials are part of a partnership with Ericsson, who will provide the equipment and software in Antigua and across the Caribbean.

A novel and viral propagation model
Gimli users need GIM tokens to use functionalities and place bets during a stream. Streamers are the ones who set up Gimli the way they want to entertain their audience, and receive the GIM fees. They benefit from Gimli and will spread its adoption to hundreds of millions viewers worldwide.
