Lechal Smart Insoles Keep You on Your Toes

first_imgIt seems like everyone has a fitness tracker these days: it’s become the new Livestrong bracelet except it actually does something. Still, they’re not entirely accurate and they definitely don’t help you navigate cities. Instead, meet Lechal, a company making smart insoles that track your activity and help you find your way.The Lechal insoles fit into any closed shoe and sync with an app on your phone. Interestingly, they’re fitted with technology that vibrates to alert you to a variety of things. For example, the insoles accurately track your steps, distance walked/run/danced/moved, and calories burned. You don’t even need to bring your phone– they will automatically transfer the data when you’re back within range of your device. Or set goals for steps or distance and your clever insoles will buzz when you’ve hit the pre-set benchmark. It works seamlessly with Google Fit and Apple Health and you can even compete with others wearing the Lechal tech.But perhaps one of the coolest things these insoles can do is help you find your way. Imagine never looking lost again no matter how utterly flummoxed you are. Taking your new paramour on a date in a new part of town? No worries, program the location into the app’s map and small vibrations in your Lechal insoles will soundlessly tell you where to go– a little buzz in your left foot tells you to take the next left– you get the idea. If Lewis and Clark had these Sacagawea would’ve been out of a job.This technology is especially helpful when travelling abroad. Even if you aren’t wearing the uniform beloved by tourists the world over, shockingly white sneakers and cargo capris, looking lost with a map in front of your face tends to give it away. The secret-almost-spy-like insole navigation works even if you’re not online.Initially designed to be a new way for the visually impaired to navigate the world, but it didn’t take the company long to realize this idea would appeal to people across the board. The insoles’ battery is rechargeable, lasting an astounding 15 days. The insoles are easily trimmed for the perfect shoe fit, are coated in an anti-bacterial material, and are water resistant. They also offer a version that clip onto your laces if you’d rather not use insoles. They may take a minute to get used to, but these smart insoles keep you moving in exactly the right direction.

Board Says Town of Pictou Did Discriminate

first_imgHUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION–Board Says Town of Pictou DidDiscriminate An independent human rights board of inquiry has found the Townof Pictou discriminated against the pastor of a local church whenit denied him permission to stage a performance on the town’swaterfront. The board ordered the town to pay the complainant, Rev. KennethGilliard of Cornerstone Community Church, $6,000 in generaldamages plus interest of 2.5 per cent for the period of time upto the board’s decision. The town must also pay the complainant$3,000 plus taxes and disbursements towards his costs. In addition to the monetary ruling, the board is requiring Pictouto provide sensitivity training for its administrative employees. The town must file an anti-discrimination policy with the NovaScotia Human Rights Commission within six months. Sitting as the independent board, Cheryl Hodder found thatreligion did play a role in the town’s refusal. “ReverendGilliard was denied use of the Marina Stage because hisperformance contained a message,” she wrote in her decision. “Themessage was a religious message.” In an earlier ruling, the board rejected a pre-hearing motion bythe town to dismiss the complaint. The town argued it was notcovered by the Human Rights Act because it did not fall withinthe definition of “person” set out in the act. In August 2002, Rev. Gilliard sought permission to perform areligious drama on the town’s Marina Stage. He claimed the townturned down his request and told him the performance was notappropriate for the public space. In lodging a human rightscomplaint, he alleged the denial was because the play was of areligious nature. A complaint is referred to a board of inquiry when members of theNova Scotia Human Rights Commission believe a prima facie case ofdiscrimination is made after an investigation by a human rightsofficer. The chief judge of the Provincial Court selects anominee to chair the hearing from a roster and the commissionersratify the nomination. The decision on the complaint is then inthe hands of the independent board. Evidence collected during the investigation of a complaint ispresented at the hearing by the commission’s legal counsel. Thecomplainant and respondent can make submissions and questionwitnesses. The board chair then decides whether or notdiscrimination has occurred. All parties have a right to appeal decisions of boards of inquiryto the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal. A copy of the independent board decision is available on thecommission’s website athttp://gov.ns.ca/humanrights/decisions/2005decisions.htm .last_img read more

GTA urges CM to allow only Hill students in govt nursing schools

first_imgDarjeeling: Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) chairman Anit Thapa, in a letter to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, has requested the state government that only Hill students be admitted in the two government nursing schools in the GTA area.The letter comes in wake of the online admission system in the government-run nursing training centres of the state. As there is no reservation for students from the GTA area in the online system, many have failed to secure a berth. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellersThe letter states that this year many Hill students have been left out of the GNM admission list owing to the online system, because of which the nursing school seats of the two nursing schools (Darjeeling and Kalimpong) have been filled up with students from outside the GTA area. “This year there are no separate seats for Kalimpong and Darjeeling training centres as candidates from all over Bengal have filled up the seats of the Hill centres. I would be grateful if you can please allow only Hill candidates admission to these nursing schools of the GTA region,” stated the letter. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaThe Health and Family Welfare department of the GTA is preparing a merit list for the GTA region so that admission to these two nursing schools can be done exclusively for students from the GTA region, stated the letter to the Chief Minister. “I would be grateful if the government of Bengal accepts this proposal from GTA,” reads the letter from Anit Thapa. The General Nursing Training Schools (government) include one attached to the Kalimpong Sub-Divisional Hospital and another attached to the Darjeeling District Hospital in the GTA area. The Kalimpong centre has 40 seats, while the Darjeeling one has 50. The total number of seats in the state stands at 2,405 (2,300 for female and 105 for mail trainees) in the 39 government centres.last_img read more

Bloomberg Philanthropies Makes 5 Million Investment To Help Deliver Light To Africa

first_imgBloomberg Philanthropies has announced a $5 million impact investment in Little Sun, creators of portable, solar-powered lamps designed by co-founders: artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen.The company works with local entrepreneurs to sell its lamps to households where electricity is scarce or unavailable, at prices that are affordable to families currently using costly and toxic kerosene for their lighting. Little Sun operates as a social business, created specifically to address a social problem rather than to maximize profits.This is Bloomberg Philanthropies first-ever impact investment and will provide a low interest rate loan that will allow Little Sun to grow, providing clean and affordable energy to homes, schools and local business in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Foundation undertook a rigorous due diligence process to evaluate the viability of the Little Sun business model and determined that solar powered lamps can provide enormous environmental and social benefits.“Today, seven out of ten people lack access to even the most basic electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa. Over the next 20 years, Africa is poised to hold the world’s largest un-electrified population,” said Felix Hallwachs, Little Sun Managing Director and CEO. “The impact investment from Bloomberg Philanthropies will help us reach our goal of providing clean energy to homes, schools and local businesses, replacing toxic kerosene lamps everywhere we work. We consider access to clean, safe and sustainable energy a fundamental human right.”Currently, households in Africa not connected to the electric grid can spend up to 20% of their total budgets on kerosene, which is the primary source of light for many of these households. Breathing kerosene toxins is also damaging to health – four hours alone is equal to smoking 40 cigarettes. Additionally, global kerosene use has been estimated to emit up to 200 million tons of CO2 annually, which is the equivalent of emissions from approximately 60 large U.S. coal plants, heightening the need to develop sustainable alternatives.To provide the greatest number of people with access to the benefits of solar-powered light, Little Sun’s initial product is priced at the most affordable end of the spectrum of portable solar products. One solar-powered Little Sun light lasts for two to three years before needing a battery replacement, and can save households up to 90% over three years compared to what they would have spent on kerosene. The targeted price point still allows profits to be collected by the local entrepreneurs who sell the lights in their communities.“Too many families are forced to breathe in toxic kerosene fumes because they don’t have access to electricity. Solar-powered lights can improve their health – and at the same time, protect our environment – by keeping pollutants out of the air they breathe,” said Michael Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies. “Little Sun is bringing clean, safe, affordable light to people who don’t have it today.”While other solar-powered lights are also available, Little Sun is unique in that it is the only light that is also a work of art, inspired by the power of sunlight and energy access.“I am thrilled by the confidence that Michael Bloomberg and his great team at Bloomberg Philanthropies have shown toward our unique social business model and our aim to bring light to people living off the energy grid. To promote solar power in the shape of a Little Sun is to invest in radical change for the lives of many while, at the same time, caring for the planet we share. Holding hands with the sun is holding hands with the future,” said Little Sun co-founder and artist Olafur Eliasson. “With a Little Sun in your hand, you become a power station – charging your lamp in the sun, you also empower yourself. Access to energy and light allows you to determine the direction of your life.”The lamp’s exceptional design and engineering has made it popular, not just in areas without electricity but around the world. Little Sun is sold at museum stores and other outlets in regions including the U.S. and Europe, at a higher price, utilizing the profits from these sales to keep off-grid sales prices locally affordable and to kick-start local businesses in off-grid communities. The Little Sun project was launched in 2012 at the Tate Modern in London, where the lamp continues to be available for purchase. They are also available for purchase online and in museums, like the MoMA Design Store in New York City and select retail stores in the U.S. and Europe.Source:PR Newswirelast_img read more

King Mohammed VIs Visit to Abidjan Radiates the AUEU Summit Ivorian

Rabat – Côte d’Ivoire and Morocco are two great nations that have exceptional relations, and the presence King Mohammed VI in Abidjan “gives a special radiance to the African Union-European Union Summit,” said Ivorian Minister of Integration, Aly Coulibaly, on Monday.The two “brotherly” countries have managed to set up an exceptional partnership that confirms the presence of Morocco in Africa, Coulibaly told the press commenting on the arrival of King Mohammed VI to Abidjan.“This is an example for Africa that a South-South partnership can work,” said the Ivorian Minister, expressing hope that countries would follow their example. The partnership is a “win-win for both countries. It is bound to strengthen the profit of both nations,” he added.King Mohammed VI is on a working visit to the country a few days ahead of the European Union-African Union Summit in the Ivorian capital.At the Félix Houphouët-Boigny airport, the King was given a warm welcome by Ivorian president, Alassane Dramane Ouattara, who was accompanied by Côte d’Ivoire’s First Lady, Dominique Claudine Ouattara.The Moroccan King was also greeted by Ivorian Vice-President Daniel Kablan Duncan, Prime Minister Amadou Gon Coulibaly, Ivorian State Minister in charge of Defense Hamed Bakayoko, the governor of Abidjan’s autonomous district, Beugré Robert Mambé, the mayor of Port-Bouët Commune, and Côte d’Ivoire’s ambassador in Rabat, Idrissa Traoré.This is King Mohamed VI’s second visit to Cote d’Ivoire in 2017, which is a testimony to the importance Morocco gives to further developing its relations with this West African country.According to a survey conducted by the Economic and Financial Affairs Council, Morocco was the top provider of Foreign Direct Investments to Cote d’Ivoire in 2016. With a volume of investments that reached USD 213 Million, Morocco surpassed France, which had traditionally been the top foreign investor in Côte d’Ivoire. read more

StellaJones boosts dividend on record 2012 results Q4 misses analyst forecasts

Stella-Jones boosts dividend on record 2012 results; Q4 misses analyst forecasts by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 22, 2013 10:02 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – Stella-Jones slightly missed analyst expectations in the fourth quarter but the Quebec-based wood products manufacturer is increasing its dividend 25 per cent following record annual sales and profits last year and the prospects of benefiting from a North American recovery in 2013.“In the year ahead, we believe Stella-Jones will continue to experience solid demand for its core products and that revenues should continue to grow,” president and CEO Brian McManus said Friday during a conference call.“The recovery of the North American economy appears to be gaining momentum. We therefore anticipate increased opportunities to build shareholder value.”The company, which makes railway ties, utility poles and other pressure-treated wood products, said Friday that it will boost its quarterly dividend by four cents to 20 cents per share, effective with the April 30 payout.The shares (TSX:SJ) were down 47 cents at $80.25 near midday Friday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.Based on recent market prices, the dividend would yield just under one per cent annually. The stock has traded between $41.80 and $82.01 over the past year.For the fourth quarter, Stella-Jones said net earnings were $16.5 million or $1 per diluted share on sales of $159.3 million. That was up from $13.4 million or 83 cents per diluted share of net income on sales of $147.5 million in the final three months of 2011.The earnings in the last quarter of 2012 included tax benefits associated with land donated to local development authorities and costs related to the McFarland Cascade acquisition.Meanwhile, for 2012 as a whole, the company says net profit was $73.1 million or $4.53 per diluted share on sales of $717.5 million. That was up from a net profit of $55.7 million or $3.48 per diluted share on sales of $640.1 million in 2011.Last year marked the company’s 12th consecutive year growing profits, driven by constant efforts to enhance operating efficiency and “a methodical execution of our continental expansion strategy,” McManus said.He said demand for its core products should remain strong as North American railway operators upgrade and expand their infrastructure while demand is expected to hold in the utility pole market.“We may see a bit of a slowdown in terms of new projects getting developed in the mining sector. . . . The offset of that is we’re certainly seeing some new developments on the pole side for special projects that may be happening on a lot of green energy initiatives,” he told analysts.Pierre Lacroix of Desjardins Capital Markets said the fourth-quarter results were slightly below expectations on slowing organic growth.Excluding the one-time costs, he estimated earnings were 80 to 85 cents per share, below the 93 cents per share average forecast by analysts.Pre-tax operating earnings were $24.1 million, including $2.4 million in acquisition costs. That’s below the $27 million expected by analysts.Stella-Jones’ existing business decreased about nine per cent due to lower advanced delivery of railway ties in the quarter and a planned reduction in the tie recycling business.“We believe the slightly weaker-than-expected results could weigh on the stock price in the near term, especially as investors have built relatively strong expectations into forecasts and stock valuation,” he wrote in a report.But Ben Vendittelli of Laurentian Bank Securities said the “slight miss in revenues was offset by continued strong margins.”He said strong growth in poles drove the continued strong margins, which were 16.6 per cent in the quarter.In the short-term, the company’s main priority will be to integrate the operating facilities acquired from McFarland Cascade Holdings at the end of November, reduce debt, enhance its network and look for new acquisition opportunities, McManus said.The company is spending about US$11 million to a new railway wood treating facility in Georgia that will serve railways in the fast-growing Florida and Atlanta, Ga., areas.“The new plant will be primarily devoted to the production of railway ties and will enhance our presence and capacity in an important core market.” read more

Il y a trois milliards dannées… la vie naissait sur Terre

first_imgIl y a trois milliards d’années… la vie naissait sur TerreUne nouvelle étude rapportée par le Daily Mail Reporter indique que la vie serait apparue sur Terre de façon soudaine il y a trois milliards d’années. Les scientifiques ont étudié d’anciens gènes de façon à dresser le portrait des premiers êtres vivants sur notre Terre. Il ressort de cette étude que les premiers à se développer furent les microbes, lorsqu’ils eurent appris à utiliser l’oxygène et l’énergie du soleil pour vivre.À lire aussiL’astronaute Thomas Pesquet offre un splendide survol de la Terre depuis l’ISSD’après les calculs effectués, 27% de tous les gènes existants apparurent il y a entre 2,8 et 3,3 milliards d’années. Puis, il y a 580 millions d’années, la vie sur Terre changea rapidement au cours de l’ère primaire. De nouvelles formes de vie apparurent.Les fossiles aident les paléontologues à déterminer la façon dont la vie a évolué. Malheureusement, il existe très peu d’empreintes fossiles datant d’il y a trois milliards d’années. En revanche, on retrouve de nombreux fragments d’ADN. Et comme tout organisme vivant possède un génome hérité de ses ancêtres, les chercheurs ont imaginé, à l’inverse, utiliser les génomes actuels pour reconstituer l’évolution des microbes anciens.C’est ainsi que les scientifiques ont découvert que la majeure partie des gènes identifiés était en relation avec l’oxygène. Ils en conclurent donc que c’est avec l’apparition de l’oxygène que ce développement extraordinaire qui a eu lieu a pu se faire. Car il faut rappeler que l’O2 n’existait pas sur Terre il y a plus de 2,5 milliards d’années. A ce moment-là, seules des formes de vie anaérobies pouvaient survivre.Pour respirer de l’oxygène les systèmes durent évoluer pour parvenir à transporter des électrons, processus biochimique indispensable à la vie aérobie. C’est grâce à cette progression que la vie dans notre atmosphère actuelle se serait développée.Le 24 décembre 2010 à 17:42 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Mustafi reveals Arsenal team meeting after slump

first_imgShkodran Mustafi has revealed that Arsenal captain Per Mertesacker held a team meeting and called for an immediate response after a difficult spell for the clubThe German international revealed that Mertesacker held the meeting after losing four out of their previous five matches in February, which included two consecutive 3-0 defeats to Manchester City in the space of just four days.“To be honest, this season has been more disappointing for us because we had bigger targets,” said Mustafi, as reported on arsenal.com“One really big positive thing is that to be able to recover from such a period when everything goes bad and you’re not in form, to be close together and come out of it as a team is a really big, massive thing.“I’ve been playing in a lot of teams across Europe and I’ve been playing in teams where we have been doing well, I’ve been playing in teams where we’ve been struggling, and it’s not easy to come out especially when you’re a big team.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“You find yourself fighting in every game against every opponent. I think you have to give credit to the team because we managed to come together and go back to the basics. Everyone was fighting for each other to try to get back on a winning streak.“Everyone knew it was a difficult period. The meeting was about trying to listen to different opinions, different ideas and different feelings, and I think we found a way to try to change a bit.“It’s not that easy because one meeting is not going to change a lot, especially not during the season when you’re playing every three days, but it was important to speak our opinions out loud. Overall it was about giving 110 per cent to try to get out of it, and I think we managed it well.”Since the meeting, Arsenal have enjoyed an upsurge in form and have now won their past three matches. This included the defeat of AC Milan to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League and they will now turn their focus to their league game against Stoke City on Sunday.last_img read more

Womens Health Steps Up Social Sharing of Content

first_imgBumgarner says that exclusive content will be delivered to its Facebook community via a new social reader app, called Get More Women’s Health, that, once enabled, can be customized so readers can pick and choose what information is relevant to them, and ultimately what they would like to consume. “It’s a Facebook articles page that allows you to read information from the website right there in Facebook in an essentially ad-free format,” says Bumgarner. “It’s similar to the social reader for Washington Post. It’s connecting social media to news articles—some are updated every day and some a couple times a month. We’ve embedded it with lots of extra information.”There are bonus workouts integrated into the social reading app in addition to a body mass index calculator, a health advice column and exclusive videos, among other things. Bumgarner says content that might have previously been put behind a pay-wall, or not always readily available, will be integrated for the brand’s Facebook fans. While the content is hosted within Facebook itself, some articles or videos link directly back to the brand’s own website, driving traffic from the social site to its ad-supported Web product.The move to have this exclusive content available on social platforms comes from audience habits.“Changing a diet or changing your lifestyle, sometimes those things are more easily accomplished when you feel like you’re doing them with other people,” says Bumgarner. “That’s the real power of this social community out there—it unlocks something new and dynamic for a Women’s Health reader that is looking to improve their life. In a way, it’s an ability to connect with people around you and decide to make those improvements together. The idea of social media can become relatively meaningful.”Bucking a Paid Content ModelIn addition to offering free content to Facebook fans, Rodale is also giving individuals the opportunity to digitally read some of its magazine free of charge, too. As tablets grow increasingly popular, publishers have breathed a sigh of relief knowing that individuals will purchase content digitally, a ship that seemingly sailed as the Internet developed. Yet, starting with its October issue, Women’s Health will enable iPad subscribers to share articles with non-subscribers—even those who receive an article without a tablet will still have the tablet reading experience regardless of the device.“We’re using a kind of new technology that’s part of the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite,” says Bumgarner. “We think it’s great for Women’s Health because we have an amazingly social audience, and we can share what we’re doing in the tablet world with other people out there. They can get a taste of the tablet experience and as a brand it allows us to bring together the tablet edition, print content and social media.”If someone downloads the October Women’s Health edition, an individual can share a story across her own personal social media channels by clicking a button within the iPad edition that has been incorporated by Adobe. “The page posted looks exactly like the tablet experience,” adds Bumgarner. “If there’s a video on that page or a 360 degree animation, all of those things are included and in the same dimensions of the tablet page. It will feel like a tablet, being very vertical and having the same interactivity.”Once an individual views a shared tablet page, they have the ability to click to the table of contents and read one more article. If clicking for a third, a prompt to become a customer appears.According to the Audit Bureau of Circulation’s most recent Fas-Fax report for the period ending June 30, 2012, Women’s Health had a total paid, verified and analyzed non-paid circulation of over 1.6 million, selling about 300,000 copies at newsstands and almost 51,500 digital replicas.“We’re proud of what we’re doing with the tablet and we want to get it to the women’s audience,” says Bumgarner. “We know that not everyone has a tablet, but we do want to share what we’re doing. We thought this would be a great way to take the initiative and move it out into the world.” On the heels of a social summer, Rodale’s Women’s Health is looking to get even more engagement momentum through a variety of community outreach strategies aimed at cultivating its audiences.About 18 percent of the brand’s monthly Web traffic now comes from Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. The brand’s Olympic Twitter Takeover campaign, which took place in July, generated over 30 million Twitter impressions. Additionally, WomensHealthMag.com has recently seen a 171 percent jump in referral traffic from Pinterest.“We really want to give something special to our social community because we feel like it’s an important part of the direction that Women’s Health is going in,” says Sean Bumgarner, Rodale’s interactive design director. “We’ve seen tremendous growth on all of our social outlets over the last year, and especially the last six months.”last_img read more

Baltimore Area Leaders Seek to Remove a Number of Confederate Symbols in

first_imgralejandro@afro.com Baltimore area leaders are moving to address Maryland’s use and endorsement of Confederate symbols in the aftermath of the racially motivated shooting that left nine dead at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, the oldest Black AME church in the south.On Monday (June 22), Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake called on the state of Maryland to stop issuing specialty license plates with the flag, a still potent symbol of slavery and White supremacy, while Baltimore County executive Kevin Kamenetz has asked Baltimore City for permission to rename Robert E. Lee Park to Lake Roland Park (the park is owned by the city but has been operated and funded by the county since 2009).“The mayor finds the Confederate flag to be divisive and offensive. She believes that it should not be allowed as a symbol on Maryland license plates and should be recalled,” said Howard Libit, director of strategic planning and policy for the mayor’s office, in an email to the AFRO.In Annapolis, the mayor’s call is already generating activity among Democratic party leaders in the General Assembly. Sen. Jamie Raskin (D-Montgomery County) is in the process of drafting a letter – to be signed by himself, senate majority leader Sen. Catherine Pugh (D-Baltimore City), chair of the Legislative Black Caucus Del. Barbara Robinson (D-Baltimore City), and Del. David Moon (D-Montgomery County) – to the Maryland Secretary of Transportation Pete Rahn on the issue.The U.S. Supreme Court recently handed down a decision (Walker v. Texas Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans Inc.) which held, in part, that license plates constitute government, not private speech. In light of this, Raskin says, the continued appearance of the Confederate symbol on Maryland license plates constitutes the endorsement of that symbol by the state itself.“The Confederate flag is the preeminent symbol of slavery, secession, armed rebellion against the government, White supremacy, and racial violence. It was the flag that waved during the Civil War for those forces that were attacking Union troops, and then even in the 20th century, after Brown v. Board was handed down, the Confederate battle flag was resurrected as the symbol of racism, Jim Crow, apartheid, and racial violence throughout the country. So hey, if [license plates] are government speech, we should dissociate ourselves from it as quickly as possible,” said Raskin.The name of Robert E. Lee Park in Baltimore County has been an issue for county staff going more or less back to the time the county took over operation of the park in 2009, according to County Executive Kamenetz.The decision had been made to request the name change three months ago (the city alone has the authority to change the name under the current agreement with the county), but the formal request was not made until the events in South Carolina moved the name change up the priority list.“Lake Roland [Park] would better describe the central amenity in the park and also be a more inclusive term that we want to represent in our increasingly diverse county,” said Kamenetz.Kamenetz’s request to the city comes on the heels of a number of racial controversies that have occurred in Baltimore County. Back in March, a number of residents from the county’s Bowleys Quarters area posted comments to Facebook indicating that the best way to deal with unknown Blacks in the neighborhood was to shoot them. In January, Kelli Murray, a Baltimore County emergency dispatcher, left her job after comments she made on Facebook criticizing police brutality against Black men drew the ire of the local police union and others, who saw Murray’s comments as a critique of police in general and called for her removal (Murray was not removed by the county, but chose to resign when she felt the county was doing little to investigate harassment she had received after her post began to draw attention).Kamenetz insists, however, that those incidents had no bearing on the request for the name change. “I think that the county has a good record in recent years for promoting diversity and inclusion. That being said, because we are such a large county (830,000 residents), there’s still some knuckleheads out there who choose to voice their opinion whether reasoned or not. But in terms of county leadership, our goal is to promote diversity and inclusion, and having this name change symbolically furthers that goal,” said Kamenetz.Baltimore City councilman Brandon Scott, anticipates that the city will move to approve Kamenetz’s request. “I don’t think we’ll fight that at all,” said Scott, adding, “It’s extremely important that we change the name of the park.”“We know what General Lee stands for, we know what that name stands for and what it means to so many people across this country. Not just those of African-American descent like myself, but other folks who understand that our country has a history that is not always a great history, and we have to try to remove that stuff from public [places] whenever we can. We wouldn’t have a park in our city named after Hitler, so we shouldn’t have one named after Mr. Lee as well,” said Scott.Baltimore City councilman Carl Stokes also said that he does not anticipate a fight over renaming the park, though there may be some discussion about whether ‘Lake Roland Park’ will win out as the alternative.“I think it’s a great idea to rename the park,” said Stokes. “I’ve been thinking about it 40 years, why it’s named for Robert Lee and why we have the monuments to Robert Lee and other Confederate quote-unquote heroes. . . . I don’t see any opposition, I support it, [and] I think almost everyone in city leadership and government will support it also.”last_img read more
