Students start campaign asking University administrators to uphold previous Title IX standards

first_imgTwo Notre Dame students are starting a campaign asking University President Fr. John Jenkins to uphold previous Title IX standards in spite of recent policy changes made by Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos.Sophomore Elizabeth Boyle, one of the creators of the “StaND 4 IX” campaign, said the campaign is largely in response to DeVos’s September decision to rescind the 2011 Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) and 2014 Q&A Guidance for Sexual Assault. According to the StaND 4 IX website, the DCL “provided an interpretation of Title IX, presenting clear guidance to colleges and universities about their obligations in sexual misconduct cases,” and “clearly stated survivors’ rights.”DeVos’s decision to rescind these directives came shortly after the University’s administration made changes to Notre Dame’s Title IX policy, something Boyle said makes her “very nervous” about how the University will handle sexual assault cases in the future.“Secretary DeVos is giving schools the option to choose things such as their evidence standard [and] to follow the 60-day timeline or not, so we have this unique opportunity as this wonderful institution to take that moral high ground,” Boyle said. “ … I think that ability to choose our next steps was what inspired us to take this on and to ensure that we are this incredible university steeped in Catholic moral values, as we put out there.”Sophomore Isabel Rooper, the other creator of the StaND 4 IX campaign, said the University has made great strides in handling Title IX cases over the past several years, and the campaign asks the University to continue making progress.“Part of what we care about is making sure that the University continues moving forward,” she said. “And so that’s what we’re striving to get a commitment for with this letter, is to make sure that the University continues moving forward and making good on that promise to support and protect survivors of sexual violence, and have a fair and reasonable process.”Boyle said one of her biggest concerns about the rescinding of the DCL is the removal of the Preponderance of Evidence standard — which requires complainants to prove an incident of sexual assault is “more likely than not” to have occurred — and the removal of a 60-day timeline for investigating and concluding Title IX cases.The 60-day timeline is the typical timeframe identified in the DCL for how long a Title IX case should take to resolve. While the timeline was not strongly enforced before DeVos rescinded the DCL, Boyle said the only thing that could hold the University to that standard is community members speaking up on behalf of survivors.“Now I think the biggest push is going to come from student activists,” she said. “[It will come] from saying, ‘Hey, if you’re having a case that’s over 100 days long, you’re re-traumatizing the victims of assault, you’re putting them through this process again.’ So the difference is going to be in saying … that Notre Dame has this choice, and we pride ourselves on making the right choice, the choice that has the higher morality and protects people.”Notre Dame has conducted investigations that have lasted longer than the 60-day timeline while the DCL was in place, such as a case that resulted in an ongoing lawsuit from a former student. Rooper said the campaign asks the University to recommit to the 60-day standard in order to minimize the trauma for all parties in a Title IX investigation.“We understand that there are sometimes extenuating circumstances that make it difficult for a university to complete an investigation within 60 days,” she said. “ … But the goal of having the University commit to that timeline … is to be able to hold the University accountable and say Title IX investigations are really difficult [for] the complainant and the respondent alike, and containing that investigation as much as we can will be beneficial for all parties involved in Title IX cases.”The campaign, which will send an open letter to Fr. Jenkins on Nov. 17, also asks the University not to resort to mediation in cases of sexual misconduct and calls for the creation of waivers for the six-semester housing requirement so that “survivors of sexual misconduct and other forms of discrimination” can move off-campus.“Ideally, what we would like to see is a waiver system that doesn’t require the victim survivor to share their story in order to be able to move off campus,” Rooper said. “ … We think that that’s a form of re-traumatization for victims and asking too much of persons who have already been ostracized or felt excluded from our community in some way.”This request extends beyond Title IX to issues of discrimination against groups such as racial minorities and the LGBT community, Boyle said.Rooper stressed that everyone can contribute to this campaign, and said sexual misconduct “isn’t a partisan issue.”“This is something that we should all be on the same page about and that we should all decide that we need our university to commit to a fair process which will support survivors,” she said. “ … People can have differing opinions on what we’re working on, but we think it’s really important that people consider what’s happening nationally, because this is a really big and significant time for Title IX changes right now and people need to pay attention.”Tags: Betsy DeVos, Fr.

Hauppauge Man Admits $1.3M Foreclosure Scam

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A disbarred attorney from Hauppauge has admitted scamming 10 families out of $1.3 million in home equity during a foreclosure rescue fraud scheme that caused some victims to lose their homes.Barry Stephen Zornberg pleaded guilty Tuesday before Judge William Wall at Central Islip federal court to charges of lying to federal investigators.“A license to practice law is not a license to steal or lie,” Loretta Lynch, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, said in a statement.Prosecutors said the 54-year-old man conducted real estate closings and allowed Bethpage-based Empire Property Solutions, LLC, a company billed as a home foreclosure rescue specialist, to use his law firm’s escrow accounts to hold and transfer funds during the scheme.Zornberg falsely told federal investigators that he advised the victims to not participate in the scheme when, in fact, he encouraged the victims to sign over their homes to the firm, thereby losing title to their homes, authorities said.Victims were told they would “refinance” their homes with Empire, when, in reality, the homeowners were tricked into transferring title in their homes to straw buyers and paying large fees, according to investigators.John Rutigliano and Kenneth Kiefer, who ran the company, were indicted in 2011 on charges of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Kiefer has since pleaded guilty. Rutigliano pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.Zornberg faces up to five years in prison. He agreed to pay a total of $1,261,149.50 to the victims. His sentencing has not yet been scheduled.last_img read more

It allows you to “find” Pokemon in the real world, and do some interaction with other players. I just read a “USA Today” The information that is overlaid on the real-world view and the objects therein can be virtual or real in nature, and it can include data that wouldn’t be possible to perceive by normal means.There are aspects to all of this that aren’t immediately apparent. For example, machine vision and artificial intelligence technologies based on deep neural networks (DNNs) and deep learning have evolved spectacularly over the past few years. By enhancing augmented reality technology with machine vision and object detection and recognition, information about the real world surrounding the user becomes interactive and digitally manipulable.What this means is that augmented realities are really only a subset of mediated realities , in which a view of reality is modified or mediated in some way. In turn, this means that, as opposed to (or in addition to) being augmented , a real-world view might also be diminished in some way. As one example, suppose you are perambulating around a city like San Francisco, viewing the world through some form of mediated reality system that detects things you’d rather not see — like trash or graffiti or homeless people — and simply removes them from the scene (or replaces them with something more palatable).I’ve called this diminished reality , but other applicable terms might be decreased , deleted , or deletive reality (I’d be very interested to hear your views on this).Hybrid and Hyper Realities Other terms one sometimes hears are hybrid reality and hyper reality . It’s easy to have a knee-jerk reaction that someone is just coining new terms for the sake of it and/or for marketing purposes, but it may be that we do need to consider these additional nomenclatures.Let’s start by defining virtual reality (in today’s broadly accepted context) to be a completely fabricated view of an artificial world. Let’s further define augmented reality to be a real-world view annotated with textual, graphical, etc. information overlays.Now, suppose we were to take a real-world view and add artificial world overlays — not information per se, but artificial constructs such as buildings, machines, statues, flora, and fauna (including mythical creatures like dragons, for example). You could call this augmented reality, but at some stage I think it might be fair to classify the result as a hybrid reality.Here’s another situation that just popped into my mind. Do you recall the old Mystery Science Theater 3000 television program. The idea was that you watched a cheesy old science fiction film that was presented as though you were sitting at the back of a cinema. In the front row of the cinema (appearing as silhouettes from your perspective) were three characters passing disparaging comments about the film you all were watching. The films were selected for their awfulness, but they were made palatable by the commentary. I recall one dreadful black-and-white movie in which, half way through, a man was seen running down a corridor carrying a huge stack of paper, and one of the characters at the bottom of the screen exclaimed, “Thank God, the script’s arrived!” The reason I mention this here is that there is an Oculus Rift app that allows you to watch your favorite movies, or YouTube videos, in the comfort of a virtual reality cinema (you can select between various theater settings). Now suppose that your headset was equipped with binocular, forward-facing cameras and an associated machine vision system. Further suppose that you have a bowl of popcorn on your knee. Assume this system were such that you could enjoy the experience of a virtual cinema — with rows of seats in front of you and everything — but, when you looked down, you saw the real-world bowl of popcorn and your real-world hands. In this case, I think the term hybrid reality would be apposite.What about the term hyper reality ? Well, all I can say is that you should take a look at this Vimeo video and then tell me what you think. Once again, I suppose you could class this as augmented reality, but it certainly seems “hyper” to me.To be continued… I could waffle on about all of this stuff for ages, but I think I may have waffled enough for this column. In my next article we will consider some of the technologies that can be brought into play to present virtual and mediated realities, from smartphones and tablet computers to devices like Google Glass (RIP) to… but let’s not get carried away here.We’ll also be considering applications for these alternative realities, from entertainment to education to commercial to industrial.In the meantime, as noted above, I’d be interested to hear what you think about the term mediated realities being used to encompass augmented realities and diminished realities . I’d also be interested to know if you like diminished reality in this context, or if you prefer decreased , deleted , or deletive reality . Finally, do you agree with my assessment that hybrid reality deserves its place in the nomenclature? And is hyper reality its own beast, or is this just another hybrid incarnation? “You, Max, pointed this article towards me a couple weeks ago. Sorry it took me a minute to check it out.

Source: Max Maxfield) Virtual Reality (VR) Now, before we plunge headlong into the fray with gusto and abandon, it may be a good idea to take a deep breath and start by considering what we mean by virtual reality . Actually, even the concept of reality is a little fluffy around the edges. For example, the Holographic principle suggests that the entire universe can be seen as two-dimensional information presented on the cosmological horizon (my dear old mother, by comparison, suggests that the Holographic principle is a load of twaddle).Personally, I would argue that virtual reality is anything that allows us to experience a different reality to the one we perceive through our senses. On this basis, ancient humans sitting around campfires listening to their storytellers weave fantastic tales were experiencing a form of virtual reality. Similarly, fictional books allow us to envision alternative realities, as do traditional two-dimensional (2D) and three dimensional (3D) movies.Today’s computer-simulated immersive multimedia virtual reality systems take things one step further, but that step is a humongous one. It’s impossible to convey the experience of using an Oculus Rift-based virtual reality system — you really have to try it for yourself. (In a future column I will be comparing and contrasting a variety of systems, including the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.) Once you don the Oculus headset with its integrated headphones, you are transported to a different world with associated sound effects. It’s more than having the ability to look up at the ceiling or down at the floor or all around you — if you tilt your head to one side, crouch down, stand on your tippy-toes, or move forward, backward, or sideward, your perspective changes accordingly.The closest thing I can use to describe this experience is being on a Star Trek Holodeck, and we’re still only at the beginning of this technology. For example, I’m currently using the Xbox one controller that came with my Rift, but I’m anxiously awaiting the availability of Oculus Touch controllers, which will add a new dimension to the proceedings by allowing you to “see” virtual representations of your hands in your virtual world and precisely manipulate objects in your virtual environment.(Source: oculus.com) In the future, we can expect a wide variety of haptic (“touch”) technologies and devices to appear on the scene (no pun intended). These little scamps will dramatically augment the user’s visual and auditory experience with physical components.As a simple haptic example, one of the free applications that comes with the Oculus Rift is the Oculus Dreamdeck , which allows you to sample a suite of virtual experiences (just listen to the commentator’s excitement when he reaches the 3:20 mark in this video).If you are short of time, skip forward to the dinosaur scene that starts at the 9:20 mark. This is one I always use to introduce someone to the Oculus experience. Assume you are in the bay outside my office having your first Rift experience. Under my tutelage you select the dinosaur option. The scene commences with you standing in a corridor of a museum (I can see a simplified 2D version of what you are experiencing on the computer monitor next to the workstation). A humongous T-Rex appears at the far end of the corridor and stomps its way towards you. At around the 10:10 mark it opens its mouth and roars at you with spittle flying all over the place. At exactly the same time, I take a cup of water I have stashed nearby and flick drops of water into your face.This is my poor-man’s version of a haptic interface. When I did this to the guy who owns the building in which I maintain my office, he afterwards said that he experienced a “Total WTF moment” (of course, being young and innocent, I have no idea what this means LOL).Augmented and Diminished Realities An augmented reality is one in which a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment is augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, text, graphics, and/or GPS data. For example, consider this video depicting Magic Leap technology.center_img Log in to Reply Steve Manley says: Log in to Reply Log in to Reply July 11, 2016 at 6:22 pm Continue Reading Previous Metrics we need – Part 2Next The perfect UI August 8, 2016 at 3:05 pm “”…I think I will walk and look in reality…”nnThat’s always a good backup LOL” “Looking forward to reading about what you think of them.” Clive”Max”Maxfield says: Clive”Max”Maxfield says: “https://sp2.img.hsyaolu.com.cn/wp-shlf1314/C2058/IMG11575.jpg” alt=”last_img” /> read more
