June 15, 2011 Regular News Bankruptcy education available to state judges through the NCBJ’s “Bench-to-Bench” program Bankruptcy education available to state judges through the NCBJ’s “Bench-to-Bench” program The National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges provides an informal program for state court judges to obtain bankruptcy education and answers.Known as “Bench to Bench” or “Bench-Bench” outreach to state court judges and sponsored by the Public Outreach Committee of the NCBJ, the program provides and develops materials to assist state court judges with bankruptcy issues that impact their cases.In addition, from time to time, participating bankruptcy judges will collaborate with their state court counterparts to plan educational gatherings followed by social time. Sometimes the interaction between the two benches is simply a matter of bankruptcy judges’ making it known that they are available for telephone conferences when a thorny bankruptcy issue arises in a state court case.For more information about the program, visit www.ncbj.org/project.html and scroll down to “Outreach to State Court Judges.” Materials are available at this link: www.ncbj.org/OutreachtoStateCourtJudgesMaterials.htm. For more information and to discuss setting up an educational meeting/social gathering, state court judges in Florida may contact Bankruptcy Judge Laurel M. Isicoff (Southern District of Florida), NCBJ POC chair, at email@example.com, or Bankruptcy Judge Catherine Peek McEwen (Middle District of Florida), NCBJ POC committee member, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“He looked like a big leaguer,” Griffey recalled, adding, “He was like a grown man at 14. He was not intimidated by the big leagues at all. He knew what was going on.”Young hit .288 with 13 home runs and 93 RBIs last season for Tampa Bay, then was traded to the Twins.Griffey, now 38, turned in a solid season in 2007 with 30 homers, 93 RBIs and a .277 average. Young said he saw no reason for his former mentor to call it quits.“Age is not a thing in this game anymore,” Young said. “If he keeps putting up numbers, he’ll keep on playing. Just look at his resume.”Young went 1-for-3 in the exhibition. Griffey was 0-for-1 with a walk.Notes: Twins LHP Francisco Liriano was scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Tuesday, with the possibility of pitching in a game later this week. … Reds OF prospect Jay Bruce, who left Sunday’s game when his left quadriceps muscle tightened, will be watched closely.“One thing that makes us a little wary is that he’s had this injury a couple of times,” manager Dusty Baker said. “You do a lot of running in center field. To have an injury like that re-occur in a player that young makes you a little apprehensive.” Twins beat Reds 8-6; Delmon Young greets old mentor Ken Griffey Jr.A two-run homerun in the 10th gave the Twins the win in Fort Myers, Fla.March 4, 2008Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrint>FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) – Chris Basak hit a two-out, two-run homer in the 10th inning and the Minnesota Twins beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-6.Randy Ruiz hit a tying, two-run homer in the ninth for the Twins.Minnesota starter Glen Perkins pitched two innings and gave up a run, two hits and two walks. He struggled in his previous spring training outing.“I felt a little more together out there,” Perkins said. “I felt like I was in a little more control.”Like Perkins, Cincinnati’s Jeremy Affeldt is trying to earn a spot as a starter after relieving last season. He allowed a run and one hit in three innings.“It’s the first time I’ve pitched that long in a year and a half,” Affeldt said. “I used my changeup this time. It was my most effective pitch. That is the one thing I’ll go home smiling about. My fastball isn’t where I want it to be. I didn’t feel comfortable out of the windup until the last inning.”The exhibition gave Reds star Ken Griffey Jr. and Twins newcomer Delmon Young a chance to catch up.Griffey was already a star when he joined the Reds in 2000, and Dmitri Young was one of his Cincinnati teammates. Young’s teenage brother, Delmon, used to tag along with Griffey, shagging flies and occasionally take batting practice.
The Huffington Post:One of the enigmas of the American political landscape is the impoverished Republican. This is the American with very little money, and many unmet needs, who nevertheless votes for people and policies that will deny him or her assistance. Indeed, many of the reddest states in the nation — those whose elected leaders want to gut the state’s welfare programs — are among the largest beneficiaries of government aid.This makes no sense. With economic inequality at a historic high, why would so many Americans want to cut spending on social services targeted specifically for them? Are these Republicans such ideological purists — so opposed to wealth redistribution on principle — that they are willing to sacrifice their own self-interest?…These results, reported in a forthcoming issue of the journal Psychological Science, are the first experimental evidence that fluctuations in perceived status can actually change attitudes about wealth redistribution. Importantly, these subjects may have believed that conservative policies were serving their self-interest, but in fact they were not better off than those with liberal policy preferences. The scientists ran another version of this study, using an economic game to manipulate perceived status, and got similar results: Those who believed they had out-performed most of the others recommended rule changes that would let the wealthy keep their money. What’s more, the economic “winners” saw liberal policy advocates as economic losers who are biased by self-interest.Read the whole story: The Huffington PostWray Herbert is an author and award-winning journalist who writes two popular blogs for APS, We’re Only Human and Full Frontal Psychology.

Oct 6, 2010One fourth of kids under 2 received full seasonal flu vaccinationOnly about a quarter of children under 2 years old were fully vaccinated against influenza during the most recent non-pandemic flu season, according to US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics released today. The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices in 2002 first encouraged seasonal flu vaccination in children aged 6 to 23 months, and then in 2004 recommended vaccination for this age-group. From September through December 2008, 41.5% of children in that age-group received at least one dose of the vaccine, with only 24.7% receiving complete two-dose protection. States with more than 40% receiving full vaccine coverage were Massachusetts, 45.9%; Rhode Island, 43.9%; Vermont, 43.6%; New Hampshire, 43.3%; Wisconsin, 41.2%; and Minnesota, 41.1%. Full coverage fell below 15% in three states: California, 14.9%; Arkansas, 14.2%; and Mississippi, 8.7%.Oct 6 CDC reportOrgan-transplant patients hit hard by pandemic H1N1Organ transplant recipients who were infected with pandemic 2009 H1N1 flu had higher mortality rates than the general population, with poorer outcomes in those whose treatment was delayed, according to a recent study. Researchers studied 77 transplant patients from 10 centers, 35 of whom were suspected novel H1N1 cases, 19 probable, and 23 confirmed. Six of them (7.8%) died, compared with CDC estimates of much less than 1% mortality in the general population and about 5% in hospitalized patients. Time from the onset of symptoms to the first visit and treatment was “significantly longer” in 34 patients who were admitted to a medical ward and 10 admitted to intensive care, compared with the 33 ambulatory patients.Oct 1 Transplantation abstractMRSA stalks Maine lobstering villageHealth officials in Maine suspect that lobster fishing activities have contributed to a methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) outbreak that has affected about 30 people in an island fishing community over the past two summers, the Associated Press (AP) reported today. Dr Stephen Sears, Maine’s state epidemiologist, told the AP that there’s no indication that MRSA is linked to lobsters but that multiple small hand traumas that occur in activities such as hauling lobster traps and cutting bait could allow the pathogen to gain a foothold on the island. Some fishermen and other island residents have been treated multiple times, but no deaths have been reported, according to the AP. Sears said it’s difficult to determine how MRSA came to the island community of Vinalhaven. He told the AP that the pathogen isn’t transmitted by seafood and that it doesn’t usually survive in sea water or on beaches at levels high enough to cause human infections.Oct 6 AP story

SHARE PITTSBURGH (AP) — Crews have rescued a University of Pittsburgh student who became trapped between two off-campus buildings, reportedly after trying to jump from one rooftop to another to impress a woman he had just met.Authorities didn’t immediately identify the man but say he could face charges once he’s treated for what’s believed to be a broken ankle. He was freed about 6 a.m. Tuesday after being trapped about four hours when he fell awkwardly into the narrow, debris-filled space between the buildings.The man was bleeding but waved to TV news cameras as he was wheeled on a gurney to an ambulance.Public safety officials say crews broke a hole through a restaurant wall to reach him, and lowered another medic on a rope to ensure the rescue efforts didn’t injure the man even more.

Crimes committed against victims due to their disability, sexual orientation or transgender identity could be punished more harshly, the Law Commission has suggested in a call for a comprehensive review of ‘hate crime’.A report published today recommends reforms to ensure the criminal justice system is able to make a ‘stronger and more coherent’ response to hate crime. For policing purposes, a crime is recorded as a hate crime if the victim or anyone else believes it to have been motivated by hostility based on disability, gender identity, race, religion and sexual orientation. But criminal offences available do not cover all five characteristics.The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 created racially and religiously aggravated offence and the Public Order Act 1986 criminalises various forms of stirring up hatred on the grounds of race, religion and sexual orientation.The commission said responses to a consultation showed strong support for extending the aggravated offences, but many responses also indicated that existing offences are ‘unnecessarily complex and not working well’. The commission recommends a ‘comprehensive review’ considering how the criminal justice system should best protect victims of hate crime, which characteristics should be protected by specific criminal offences, how such characteristics should be identified and the role played by sentencing.The commission notes that such a review would require government support and resources. If that was lacking, it suggested the ‘alternative but less satisfactory solution’ that the aggravated offences should be extended to disability, sexual orientation and transgender identity.Its research found that enhanced sentencing powers are being under-used, in part because the hostility element of hate crime is often not investigated fully and the court is not given the evidence needed to enhance sentencing.It recommends that the Sentencing Council provide clear guidance to judges on sentencing for any crime with an element of hostility, and that the Police National Computer record where any offence was aggravated by hostility.However creating new offences of stirring up hatred on the grounds of disability and transgender identity would bring very few successful prosecutions, the commission said. Law commissioner for criminal law Professor David Ormerod QC said: ‘We do not believe that simply extending the existing offences would provide an adequate solution. Instead, we recommend a thorough review of the scheme should be carried out. We believe this would provide the criminal justice system with its best opportunity to respond effectively to hate crime in all its forms.’Commenting, justice minister Damian Green (pictured) said: ‘All forms of hate crime are despicable and can have devastating consequences for victims and communities.’ He said the government welcomes the report and will be considering the recommendations before responding ‘in due course’.
