Evansville Law Library Gets A New Librarian

first_imgEvansville Law Library Gets A New Librarian Marilyn Odendahl for www.theindianalawyer.comEven as legal research materials continue to migrate to online platforms, the Evansville legal community has rallied to save its county law library.The future of the William H. Miller Law Library, which dates back to the early 1900s, was in doubt after its longtime librarian Helen Reed died unexpectedly in the spring. Data kept by Reed showed lawyers were no longer using the library as they once had but when closure became an option, they advocated to keep the venue open.Last week, the Vanderburgh Law Library Foundation board assured the facility will continue by hiring Kathleen Weston as the new librarian. Her first day will be Sept. 5.“I’m very excited to see where this goes,” said foundation board president Yvette LaPlante.In researching all that Reed had been doing, the board realized the late librarian was providing tremendous assistance to the pro se litigants who were coming to the law library. Weston is expected to continue that role so along with being the librarian, she will also carry the title of pro se coordinator. She will help unrepresented parties find the materials they need and direct them to local attorneys as well as legal aid services who can offer advice and representation.Pro se coordinators were among the proposals put forth in 2016 by the Indiana State Bar Association’s Future of the Provision of Legal Services Committee. Describing the rise in unrepresented litigants a crisis, the committee recommended coordinators either be attorneys or certified legal interns and be available in the courthouses to help the pro se parties navigate the system.Weston is not an attorney or a paralegal but she has experience working in student law clinics. From 1998 to 2005, she was the law clinics administrator at William Mitchell College of Law (which has since become Mitchell Hamline School of Law) and from 2005 to 2012, she was the law clinics office administrator at the University of Minnesota.A native of Evansville, Weston is currently a library assistant at the Willard Library in Evansville and will complete her master of library science degree in 2018.To determine the future of the law library, the foundation surveyed those who used the library and members of the legal community. Also, it held a public meeting to solicit more feedback.The foundation board learned the community considered the law library a valuable resource. “I was really surprised at the number of attorneys who said, ‘I don’t use (the library) but we can’t close it,’” LaPlante said. The lawyers view the facility as helping not only the general public but also the legal community.Through the outreach effort, the foundation board may also have identified some partners for future initiatives. The Volunteer Lawyer Program of Southwestern Indiana expressed an interest in holding a monthly clinic at the law library for pro se litigants and the pre-law and political science programs at the University of Southern Indiana want to explore ways they can work with the library.Funding for the law library will continue to come from the Vanderburgh Circuit Court and the library foundation.The law library, located in the City-County Courts Building in Evansville, is a non-circulating library with a collection of about 22,000 volumes and another 6,000 volumes on microfiche. Some online resources are also available.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Colder winters add to colony collapse

first_imgTwo widely used neonicotinoids — a class of insecticide — appear to significantly harm honeybee colonies over the winter, particularly colder winters, according to a new study from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). The study replicated a 2012 finding from the same research group that found a link between low doses of imidacloprid and Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), in which bees abandon their hives over the winter and eventually die. The new study also found that low doses of a second neonicotinoid, clothianidin, had the same negative effect.Further, although other studies have suggested that CCD-related mortality in honeybee colonies may come from bees’ reduced resistance to mites or parasites as a result of exposure to pesticides, the new study found that bees in the hives exhibiting CCD had almost identical levels of pathogen infestation as a group of control hives, most of which survived the winter. This finding suggests that the neonicotinoids are causing some other kind of biological mechanism in bees that in turn leads to CCD.The study appears online May 9 in the Bulletin of Insectology.“We demonstrated again in this study that neonicotinoids are highly likely to be responsible for triggering CCD in honeybee hives that were healthy prior to the arrival of winter,” said lead author Chensheng (Alex) Lu, associate professor of environmental exposure biology at HSPH.Since 2006, CCD has caused significant losses of honeybees. Pinpointing the cause is crucial to mitigating this problem since bees are prime pollinators of roughly one-third of all crops worldwide. Experts have considered a number of possible causes, including pathogen infestation, beekeeping practices, and pesticide exposure. Recent findings, including a 2012 study by Lu and colleagues, suggest that CCD is related specifically to neonicotinoids, which may impair bees’ neurological functions. Imidacloprid and clothianidin both belong to this group.Lu and his co-authors from the Worcester County Beekeepers Association studied the health of 18 bee colonies in three locations in central Massachusetts from October 2012 through April 2013. At each location, the researchers separated six colonies into three groups — one treated with imidacloprid, one with clothianidin, and one untreated.There was a steady decline in the size of all the bee colonies through the beginning of winter — typical among hives during the colder months in New England. Beginning in January 2013, bee populations in the control colonies began to increase as expected, but populations in the neonicotinoid-treated hives continued to decline. By April 2013, six out of 12 of the neonicotinoid-treated colonies were lost, with abandoned hives that are typical of CCD. Only one of the control colonies was lost — thousands of dead bees were found inside the hive — with what appeared to be symptoms of a common intestinal parasite called Nosema ceranae.While the 12 pesticide-treated hives in the current study experienced a 50 percent CCD mortality rate, the authors noted that in their 2012 study, bees in pesticide-treated hives had a much higher CCD mortality rate — 94 percent. That earlier bee die-off occurred during the particularly cold and prolonged winter of 2010-11 in central Massachusetts, leading the authors to speculate that colder temperatures, in combination with neonicotinoids, may play a role in the severity of CCD.“Although we have demonstrated the validity of the association between neonicotinoids and CCD in this study, future research could help elucidate the biological mechanism that is responsible for linking sub-lethal neonicotinoid exposures to CCD,” said Lu. “Hopefully we can reverse the continuing trend of honeybee loss.”Funding for the study came from the Wells Fargo Foundation and the Breck Fund at the Harvard University Center for the Environment.last_img read more

Stage Version of 1984 Heading to Broadway

first_img 1984 Big Brother is coming to Broadway. The 2017-2018 Broadway season will kick off with the London production of 1984. Adapted from George Orwell’s chilling 1949 novel, Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan’s stage version is set to open at the Hudson Theatre on June 22.Following the 2016 election, the novel 1984 has recently skyrocketed on bestseller lists. The story is set in a dystopian future where critical thought is suppressed by a totalitarian government. There have been two film versions of the novel: one in 1956 that starred Edmond O’Brien and Michael Redgrave another in the year 1984 that starred John Hurt and Richard Burton. This production of 1984 was originally produced in the U.K. by Headlong, Nottingham Playhouse, and the Almeida Theatre, London. The stage adaptation has had four lauded runs in the U.K. Scott Rudin and Sonia Friedman will produce the Broadway transfer.The creative team for the Broadway production consists of scenic and costume designer Chloe Lamford, lighting designer Natasha Chivers, sound designer Tom Gibbons and video designer Tim Reid.Casting will be announced at a later date.Sunday in the Park with George, which begins performances at the newly refurbished Hudson Theatre on February 11, is scheduled to run through April 23.  View Comments Related Showscenter_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Oct. 8, 2017 Andrew Gower in the London production of ‘1984’(Photo: Manuel Harlan)last_img read more

Minister Declares Chile Will Not Cede Territory to Bolivia

first_imgBy Dialogo December 19, 2012 Chilean Minister of Foreign Affairs Alfredo Moreno, denied that his country is planning to grant part of its sovereign territory to Bolivia, and dismissed that the Bolivian state had a different vision over the Treaty of 1904, by means of which he ceded its maritime coasts to Chile after a war conflict. “Bolivia says that Chile should grant them a sovereign portion of Chile. I do not think that way; the President (Sebastián Piñera) does not think that way, nor do the vast majority of Chileans,” Moreno said, according to local radio station Cooperativa on December 14. By the end of the XIX century, Bolivia and Chile fought the Pacific War, and then signed a peace treaty to put an end to the conflict in 1904. In this agreement, Bolivia granted to Chile the territory and maritime area that was in the Pacific Ocean, in exchange for commercial facilities in northern Chilean ports. However, Bolivia rejects the agreement and demands that Chile grant them a portion of land and sea to compensate for its lack of maritime access. President Evo Morales said he would bring the referendum to an international court, as in the case of Peru, which claimed a maritime border with Chile before the International Court of Justice at The Hague. Bolivia sent a delegation to The Hague to follow the hearings in the Peruvian maritime claim, which concluded on December 14. Regarding this issue, Minister Moreno confirmed that the cases are different, since Peru is not aware of the treaties signed in 1952 and 1954, which fixed the maritime border according to Chilean judgment, and Bolivia recognizes the validity of the Treaty of 1904 with Chile. “Bolivia agrees that the Treaty of 1904 states exactly what the Chileans claim,” Moreno declared. The Chilean Minister added that his country is willing to seek solutions “based on what was agreed over 100 years ago, which established the boundaries of Bolivia and Chile.” “This also requires political leadership in Bolivia,” Minister Moreno assured. Bolivia and Chile have no diplomatic relations since 1978.last_img read more

Ecuadorean Military Dismantles Three Colombian Insurgent Bases

first_imgBy Dialogo March 28, 2013 The Ecuadorean Military dismantled three illegal bases belonging to Colombian armed groups in a jungle area of the binational border, after an armed confrontation, the Armed Forces Joint Command reported on March 26. The clash between Northern Operational Command members and three Colombian insurgents – two men and a woman – wearing black uniforms and armed with M-4 rifles, took place on March 23 in Sucumbíos province, according to a communiqué. The individuals “opened fire against Ecuadorean Soldiers, who responded to the attack, forcing the criminals to flee,” the report added, stating that the military service members were performing routine surveillance operations. The report did not specify if any deaths or injuries resulted from this confrontation. After the conflict, the patrol searched the area and discovered “two rest points with the capacity for up to 20 people each, and a guerrilla base abandoned hours before having been discovered, where war materials and supplies were found.” The military patrol seized two AK-47 magazines, folding chairs, fuel, combat vests, stoves, notebooks, and doctrine books, among other items, the Joint Command stated. A built-in kitchen, tunics, and material to build traps were also found nearby. During 2012, Ecuador’s Armed Forces captured 19 alleged Colombian insurgents during controlled operations 720 km from the border, according to the report. The Soldiers also destroyed 19 bases and nine shelters built in Ecuador, as well as 173,385 coca plants, and 3,000 poppy plants (raw materials for the production of cocaine and heroin).last_img read more

How communication and personality improves the onboarding process

first_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Carletta Clyatt Carletta Clyatt, a popular seminar speaker, is the SVP at The Omnia Group.  She offers clients advice on how to manage more effectively and gain insight into employee strengths, weaknesses … Web: www.omniagroup.com Details New relationships can be stressful. People are blindly figuring each other out and managing expectations. When it comes to work relationships though, the “getting to know you” onboarding process can be easier with the right tools.   As with many things in the workplace, the most useful tool of all is communication. Successful communication relies on the ability to understand the message being conveyed. That’s where personality assessments come into play, giving you the information you need to truly understand and be understood. When most people think of personality tests, they think of matching candidates to a job. Or, they think of them as tools for their employee management, development and retention programs. What might not spring immediately to mind is their use in the onboarding process. They say you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and that’s definitely true when bringing a new employee into your credit union.  Which is why having a virtual cheat sheet for understanding the newest member of your team can be the game changer that gives you the advantage when it comes to a successful onboarding process. Every company has their own unique culture and ways of bringing new people into their world, and the most successful ones continue to redefine those processes by using analytics throughout the employee lifecyle. Twitter, for instance, has a 75-step onboarding program moving their new hires “From Yes to the Desk.”  It’s safe to assume that it takes more than 280 characters to explain the process!Google, true to its brand, relies heavily on analytics to map out the best paths to the future success of a new hire, and that path varies by position and department.  Based on how other people have found success within similar roles, they match what works and where they need to do more to help each new hire grow into their position. The use of a personality assessment, in every step of onboarding, can personalize the process and establish the groundwork for more long-term value, and long-term commitment, from your newest employees. An assessment takes your organization’s current onboarding methodology and puts a personalized spin on it. It can help you map the path for success for specific individuals, and in fewer steps than Twitter’s detailed program. Even better: it can be custom fit for your credit union’s culture and needs. For instance, one HR challenge with new employees is getting all the mandatory paperwork completed. In most companies, there is a lot of it. From federal forms and setting up security access to countless other procedural acknowledgements to sign and initial, that amount of written communication, all at once, can be intimidating. But if you know your new hire’s preferred way of processing information (do they thrive on deadlines and multi-tasking or do they need to complete one thing at a time, for example) you can use the onboarding time to release these forms in a way that plays to their strengths.  Similarly, you can use the required training videos and other audiovisual materials for maximum impact once you understand the individual strengths of your new hire and tailor the rollout of information to them accordingly. For example, Jared is detail-oriented and wants to fully absorb as much information as possible. He may take longer with each piece of the process to make sure he fully understands the information. Tonya, on the other hand, is comfortable moving at an accelerated pace and keeping copies of everything to refer back to later. Many companies have a training program with designated trainers to help a new hire learn the system and corporate culture. And many successful companies couple that with assigning a personal mentor. Not just someone giving them information, but helping them assimilate into their new environment, guiding them through their daily routine with verbal and non-verbal reinforcement and feedback. They help them transition through their work lifecycle towards a greater role in the success of the company. Mentors can also help manage new employee expectations when it comes to formal communication (coming down from official channels) versus an informal sharing of information within the department and other corporate cultural norms they might not be used to encountering. Behavioral analysis successfully pairs these people by matching communication styles, making it easier to coach new hires through any challenging areas that may occur. For example: Sally’s outgoing personality, and her love of mingling with new coworkers to help them assimilate, might be a boon to helping bring in Jonathan, who enjoys a hands-on approach and working closely in groups. But she might not be the best fit for Rebekah, who is more reserved and who prefers an analytical, one-on-one approach to the mentoring process, with steps and goals laid out to help her get comfortable in her role. Successful onboarding doesn’t end with a signed form or a completed training program. It’s an ongoing process that continues past the 90-day evaluation, as it morphs into successful long-term employment. That happens when a good plan and purposeful communication work together to help your new hire become an essential part of what is great about your organization. Starting a relationship off on the right foot doesn’t guarantee success, of course. But it does make everything – negotiating conflict, the process of discovering things about each other, and inevitable change – so much easier. Give yourself those advantages, and you’re more likely to end up with a dream match.last_img read more
