C.Ve. Shanmugam says 2,428 members signed affidavits in support of amendments to the by-laws

AIADMK Villupuram district secretary and former Minister C. Ve. Shanmugam on Wednesday submitted to the Election Commission in New Delhi the text of the resolutions, adopted by the party’s general council at its meeting on Monday, along with the affidavits signed by 2,428 members of the general council.

He told reporters that the affidavits reflected the support of the general council members for all the 16 resolutions, especially those concerning the revival of the post of general secretary, the creation of the post of interim general secretary, appointment of Edappadi K. Palaniswami to the post, and the commitment to hold the election for the post of general secretary in four months. As many as 2,460 members had attended the meeting. 

Asked how the EC would handle the matter, Mr. Shanmugam replied that it was for the EC to decide. However, he referred to the ruling of the Supreme Court and the Madras High Court on the powers of the general council with regard to the party’s internal affairs. He criticised the deposed coordinator, O. Panneerselvam, for the manner in which he gained entry into the premises of the party headquarters on Monday morning. 

He refused to comment on the contents of an audio clip, said to be containing the voice of former Minister C. Ponnaiyan. He added that Mr. Ponnaiyan himself clarified that he had not made such remarks.

Killexams : Be the first to know

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — With a cease-fire between Israel and Palestinian militants holding after nearly three days of violence, Gaza’s sole power plant resumed operations Monday as Israel began reopening crossings into the territory.

Israel also lifted security restrictions on southern Israeli communities after the Egyptian-mediated truce took effect late Sunday. Fighting abated, and war-weary people in Gaza and Israel were left picking up the pieces after another round of violence — the worst since an 11-day war between Israel and Hamas last year.

Since Friday, Israeli aircraft had pummeled targets in Gaza while the Iran-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad militant group fired hundreds of rockets at Israel.

Over three days of fighting, 44 Palestinians were killed, including 15 children and four women, and 311 were wounded, the Palestinian Health Ministry said. Islamic Jihad said 12 of those killed were militants. Israel said some of the dead were killed by rockets misfired from Gaza. No Israelis were killed.

People are also reading…

The violence had threatened to spiral into another all-out war but was contained because Gaza’s ruling Hamas group stayed on the sidelines, possibly because it fears Israeli reprisals and undoing economic understandings with Israel, including Israeli work permits for thousands of Gaza residents that bolster Hamas' control over the coastal strip.

Israel and Hamas have fought four wars since the group overran the territory in 2007. Hamas had a strong incentive to avoid more conflict, which has exacted a staggering toll on the impoverished territory’s 2.3 million Palestinian residents.

The outburst of violence in Gaza was a key test for Israel’s caretaker Prime Minister Yair Lapid, who lacks experience leading military operations. He unleashed the offensive less than three months before a general election in which he is campaigning to keep the job — and may have gained political ground with it.

Israel began to reopen crossings into Gaza for humanitarian needs on Monday and said it would fully open them if calm is maintained. Fuel trucks were seen entering at the main cargo crossing headed for the power plant, which went offline Saturday after Israel closed the crossings into Gaza last week.

That added to misery at the height of summer heat in the territory, which is under a stifling Israeli-Egyptian blockade and suffers from a chronic power crisis that leaves residents with only a few hours of electricity a day.

Life for hundreds of thousands of Israelis was disrupted during the violence. Israel's sophisticated Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted many of the rockets launched at Israel and no significant injuries were reported.

Israel launched its operation with a strike Friday on a leader of the Islamic Jihad, saying there were “concrete threats” of an anti-tank missile attack against Israelis in response to the arrest last week of another senior Islamic Jihad member in the West Bank. That arrest came after months of Israeli raids in the West Bank to round up suspects following a spate of Palestinian attacks against Israel.

It killed another Islamic Jihad leader in a strike on Saturday.

Both sides boasted of their successes. Speaking to reporters in Tehran on Sunday, Islamic Jihad leader Ziad al-Nakhalah said the militant group remained strong, despite losing two of its leaders. “This is a victory for Islamic Jihad,” he said.

Despite that claim, the group undoubtedly sustained a blow during the fierce offensive. Beyond losing the two leaders, it reduced its arsenal by firing hundreds of rockets.

Israel said some of the deaths in Gaza were caused by errant militant rocket fire, including in the Jebaliya refugee camp, where six Palestinians were killed Saturday. On Sunday, a projectile hit a home in the same area of Jebaliya, killing two men. Palestinians held Israel responsible for the Sunday attack, while Israel said it was investigating whether the area was struck by misfired rockets.

The cease-fire deal contained a promise that Egypt would work for the release of two senior Islamic Jihad detainees held by Israel, but there were no guarantees this would happen. The weekend fighting was also bound to complicate Islamic Jihad’s relations with Hamas.

A senior Israeli diplomatic official said the offensive was successful and had taken Islamic Jihad's capabilities back “decades,” citing the loss of the two leaders and hits to the group's rocket production and firing capabilities, among other blows. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the operation with the media.

U.S. President Joe Biden welcomed the cease-fire.

“Over these last 72-hours, the United States has worked with officials from Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Egypt, Qatar, Jordan, and others throughout the region to encourage a swift resolution to the conflict,” he said in a statement Sunday.

In the occupied West Bank on Monday, Israeli troops demolished the homes of two Palestinians suspected of carrying out a deadly attack against Israelis in the city of Elad in May. The soldiers faced a violent protest during the operation, the military said.

The U.N. Security Council was to hold an emergency meeting Monday on the violence. China, which holds the council presidency this month, scheduled the session in response to a request from the United Arab Emirates, which represents Arab nations on the council, as well as China, France, Ireland and Norway.

“We underscore our commitment to do all we can towards ending the ongoing escalation, ensuring the safety and security of the civilian population, and following-up on the Palestinian prisoners file,” said U.N. Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Tor Wennesland, in a statement.

The Israeli army said militants in Gaza fired about 1,100 rockets toward Israel, with about 200 of them landing inside the Palestinian enclave. The army said its air defenses had intercepted 380 of them, including two fired toward Jerusalem. The military did not specify what happened to the remainder, but they likely fell in open areas or broke up in the air.

Islamic Jihad has fewer fighters and supporters than Hamas, and little is known about its arsenal. Both groups call for Israel's destruction, but have different priorities, with Hamas constrained by the demands of governing.

Over the past year, Israel and Hamas have reached tacit understandings based on trading calm for work permits and a slight easing of the border blockade, imposed by Israel and Egypt when Hamas overran the territory 15 years ago. Israel has issued 12,000 work permits to Gaza laborers, and has held out the prospect of granting another 2,000 permits.

Dan M. Frangopol, the inaugural Fazlur R. Khan Endowed Chair of Structural Engineering and Architecture at Lehigh University, is a co-author of a paper recognized with the 2022 European Council on Computing in Construction (EC3) Thorpe Medal.

The paper, "Digital technologies can enhance global climate resilience of critical infrastructure," was published online in December 2021 in Climate Risk Management (Elsevier), a peer-reviewed, open-access journal.

The writing team includes Frangopol—a pioneering researcher in the fields of life-cycle performance analysis, design, maintenance, management, and multi-objective optimization of civil and marine structures under uncertainty—as well as other international experts in fields such as structural safety, risk, resilience, sustainability, structural health monitoring, natural hazards, and climate change effects on infrastructure.

Established in 2018, the award honors Antony Thorpe, a pioneering professor in construction information technology and co-founder of COMIT (Construction Opportunities for Mobile IT), the community for mobile computing in construction. The medal recognizes a paper that “contributes to either practical or research aspects of engineering informatics disciplines in the built environment,” according to EC3. A panel evaluates nominated papers on “the practical value of contribution and its impact on engineering informatics practice.”

The award will be formally announced July 26, 2022, during the European Conference on Computing in Construction (2022EC3) Conference in Rhodes, Greece. The biennial meeting, organized by the European Council for Computing in Construction, is the premier European conference for information, communication, and technological research, innovation, and policy for the construction sector as a whole in Europe. The event gathers researchers, practitioners, and construction industry professionals from around Europe to meet and share information about the latest developments in all aspects related to computing in construction.

“Existing and emerging digital technologies, such as Internet of Things (IoT), digital twin (DT), and machine learning (ML), as well as cutting-edge modeling will play a leading role in developing and enhancing the resilience of critical infrastructure systems to climate change,” says Frangopol. “Leveraging expertise in these fields is key to guiding decision-making to achieve international economic and societal goals that depend on safe, reliable, resilient, and sustainable infrastructure systems.” 

Frangopol’s main research interests are in the development and application of probabilistic and optimization concepts and methods to civil and marine structures under various types of hazards.

He is a distinguished member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and has been recognized with numerous awards and honors from ASCE and other leading professional organizations. He is the founder and editor-in-chief of Structure and Infrastructure Engineering, an international peer-reviewed journal launched in 2005.

Frangopol is an elected member of the National Academy of Construction of the United States, an international fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, a foreign member of the Academia Europaea (Academy of Europe, London), a foreign associate of the Engineering Academy of Japan, a foreign member of the Royal Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts, an honorary member of the Romanian Academy, and an honorary member of the Academy of Technical Sciences of Romania. He holds four honorary doctorates, 14 honorary professorships, and six guest professorships.

Frangopol has authored/co-authored 4 books, 64 book chapters, over 450 articles in peer-reviewed journals, including 13 award-winning papers, and more than 600 papers in conference proceedings. He was ranked as the 10th most-cited civil engineering author in the August 2019 Stanford University worldwide citation survey published in PloS, and ranked No. 45 (United States), and No. 95 (World) on April 6, 2022, by on the list of top scientists in Engineering and Technology.

Frangopol is the founding president of the International Association for Bridge Maintenance and Safety (IABMAS) and of the International Association for Life-Cycle Civil Engineering (IALCCE), and the founding vice-president of the International Society for Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure (ISHMII). He is also the past vice-president of the International Association for Structural Safety and Reliability (IASSAR), and past vice-president of the Engineering Mechanics Institute of ASCE and past member of its Board of Governors.

GREENSBORO — Less than a year from now, the corner of Davie and East Market streets will have a city-sponsored makeover.

A concept rendering of the February One parking deck. The deck is scheduled to open to the public by summer 2023.

By April 2023, the city’s five-year parking deck project is expected to come to a close, the finished look being an over 700-space structure for cars and bicycles alike.

Not to mention a parking office, retail storefront epicenter and home to a new 180-room Westin Greensboro hotel.

But for one business on South Elm Street, this new multimillion-dollar dream deck is nothing but a nightmare.

Cone Denim Entertainment Center used to bring in packed crowds and big names in comedy. Now, the venue only has four events listed on its website — two this month and two in October.

People are also reading…

Owner Rocco “Rocky” Scarfone said the live entertainment center has struggled to book major artists since construction started on the downtown February One parking deck in 2020.

“It was a disaster,” Scarfone said. “Everything was torn up and it was not usable and they had put up a temporary retaining wall.”

The deck, he said, has destroyed Cone Denim’s easement, an alley in the back of the venue’s building.

Cone Denim Entertainment Center has had limited access to the alleyway behind its building during construction of a new parking deck. Equipment and materials can be seen in the alley in this Sept. 30 photo.

Artists traveling to perform at the live entertainment center use the alley for their tour buses. Without it, the buses can’t get to the back of Cone Denim’s building to unload equipment and artists can’t access the dressing room.

For Scarfone, it was like the business had gotten over the nightmare of COVID-19, which had shut them down for 14 months, just to awaken to a new one caused by the construction.

When Cone Denim hosted its annual charity event to raise money for St. Jude, “Stars and Guitars,” the unusable easement led to multiple artists and tour buses loading in front of the venue instead of backstage.

“That leads to us walking artists through the front door with guests in the building,” Scarfone said. “It’s a security risk, they don’t want to do it and it creates a nightmare for load out.”

Adjustments had to be made when country singer Niko Moon came because there was nowhere to park in the back of the building. Stage props critical to Korean-pop band 2Z’s performance couldn’t be loaded. And the trend continued, show after show.

“I can’t book my A grade acts,” Scarfone said. “Everyone, anyone who is in the live entertainment industry will tell you that access to the rear of your building and to your dressing rooms is mandatory. And that access has not been available since Day 1.”

Cone Denim Entertainment’s marquee is bare. The venue on South Elm Street just has four shows booked right now — two in August and two in October. Owner Rocco “Rocky” Scarfone says he has trouble booking acts because it is difficult, if not impossible, for tour buses to access the back of the building because of the new parking deck being built.

Day 1 of fighting for access to Cone Denim’s easement isn’t last year or the year before — it’s Dec. 19, 2017.

That’s the day the City Council voted to build the February One parking deck, but also when it voted to take Cone Denim’s easement by eminent domain.

What resulted after was a court case, pursued by Scarfone and Jeff Furr, another Cone Denim owner, to prevent the city from seizing the alleyway.

The City Council voted to settle with Scarfone and Furr in April 2018. The no-fault settlement awarded $735,000 in damages and lawyer’s fees and gave the owners certain easement rights.

These rights-of-way were twofold, with certain stipulations required during construction of the deck and another set after.

According to the agreement, during construction the city is supposed to provide a 15-foot by 80-foot parking easement and an about 14-foot by 70-foot shared access easement whenever Cone Denim gives them appropriate notice of a show. The shared access easement is located inside of the parking easement.

Cone Denim uses the easement for artists’ tour buses to load and unload equipment and according to the settlement, the exclusive right to park there during the show.

Or at least the easements would be used for those reasons if the tour buses were able to fit through them, Scarfone said.

According to the agreement, there are times when “the parking easement may be inaccessible and unavailable for use due to modifications to the Parking Easement area necessary or appropriate in connection with the construction of the project…”

One area of the alleyway behind Cone Denim Center in Greensboro measures just under 11 feet wide.

However, in instances where the easement area is unavailable, according to the agreement, it is the city’s responsibility to “designate alternative bus parking locations” that Cone Denim has the exclusive right to park in and that the city must ensure that the construction is completed promptly to minimize the parking easement’s unavailability.

But Scarfone said the easement’s unavailability hasn’t just been limited to a specific time when construction was being completed and is still unavailable today.

“We explained to them (the city’s lawyer) that we don’t have either of those at all,” Scarfone said. “It (the parking easement) wasn’t a 15 by 80… it wasn’t even 14 by 80. The shared access easement, it was supposed to be 14 feet wide. It doesn’t say 14 feet wide, then narrows to 8 feet, narrows to 11 feet. It’s supposed to be 14 feet without exception.”

Because of this constant unavailability, Scarfone said buses have had to park at East Market Street, which is an alternative parking area noted in the settlement, wheel equipment up to Elm Street and go through Cone Denim’s front door.

“Cones would be put out, but no city monitoring whatsoever… people would just move the cones and park their cars there,” Scarfone said. “Our most exact show, the tour bus was in, which was a nightmare to back in, and only for them not to be able to get out because people parked behind them. There’s no enforcement for anything.”

The city declined to comment on the settlement.

Scarfone said he and his lawyers have been contacting the city about the problems, which they see as a breach of contract, since December 2020.

Yellow posts line the space in between the new February One parking deck that is being built and Cone Denim Entertainement Center's easement.

“Even though we told them, the city’s parking deck is now permanently constructed in our easement,” said Drew Brown, a lawyer representing Scarfone. “And not only have they built this wall, but they’ve put in barriers now that closes it even more behind my client’s business.”

According to the agreement, when construction is complete on the deck, Cone Denim should have an easement that’s 19 feet wide and about 220 feet long. Currently, the widest section is about 14 feet.

Yellow posts line the space in between the new February One parking deck that is being built and Cone Denim Entertainement Center’s easement.

Considering that the five-story deck’s structure is already in place, Scarfone said he feels like the 19-foot wide easement is impossible now.

“The easement that is there right now, is now the easement I am stuck with,” Scarfone said. “Forever. It would be impossible for them to tear down the deck structure.”

“There is no light at the end of the tunnel for me… it is absolutely the ruination of my business, permanently.”

He sees just one option now.

“All these phone calls, all these letters, everything we’ve done has fallen on deaf ears,” Scarfone said. “As if my business doesn’t matter because I’m not a $50 million Westin. And now we’re left with no choice but to sue again, which I shouldn’t have to do.”

Killexams : Council waives tax penalties on run-down High Street property

At Monday’s meeting, the Somerset City Council agreed to waive the penalties on the unpaid taxes of a High Street property in order to help a developer renovate the residence.

The council will not be waiving the actual unpaid back taxes, but by waiving the fees it will clear the way for the property to be transferred to the new owners.

“I think they’re (the current owners) pretty much giving it to him (the new owner),” said City Attorney John Adams. “If he can get the tax liens waived, he can redo the property.”

Both Pulaski County Government and the Somerset Independent district are doing similar waivers, Adams said.

The house on the property, located at 312 High Street, is in a dilapidated state, Adams said. Without the developer taking on the project, the lot would become another in the long list of those taken over and maintained by city government.

Mayor Alan Keck confirmed the city currently has more than 30 properties on its books.

Adams added that when the economic climate is better for builders, the city’s plan would be to file suits in Pulaski Circuit Court, notify the tax lien holders they are selling the properties and offload the properties through sales.

Of the High Street property, Adams said, “This is an opportunity to save this one before it gets too far gone.”

Adams said it would cost the city between $5,000 and $10,000 to tear down the High Street house themselves, so by waiving the tax penalties it would still save the city money.

Keck said that this would also allow the property to be used for residential housing – something the city sorely needs more of.

From property finances to those of EMS, Council Member Amanda “Bean” Bullock updated council members about discussions at the latest Somerset-Pulaski County EMS board meeting, in which officials said there were currently nine open positions and three people off on medical leave.

Board members discussed having to cut costs in some areas in order to possibly raise pay.

“With our EMS workers coming in at $16.25 an hour – our paramedics coming in at that – then we’re going to have to look at some raises for these people,” Bullock said.

Keck said he agrees, but that Somerset government shouldn’t be taking on the entire cost.

“The city is putting up as much of the bill as the county is, and we’re less than 20 percent of the population,” Keck said.

The city and Pulaski County Government still have two years on their current agreement of how much of EMS’s costs the county will cover, Keck said, “but long-term there’s going to have to be substantive changes, and the city can’t always foot the bill.”

Killexams : Will there be a press left to regulate after Peter Feeney departs?

Susan McKay becomes press ombudsman on October 1. Our guess it that the former director of the National Women’s Council of Ireland, much decorated journalist and author of several well-received books will raise the profile of the office. “We’d like a higher profile,” admits the outgoing press ombudsman, Peter Feeney, “and I’m guessing my successor will work hard to up it a bit.”

“It’s tricky, though,” he warns. “The ombudsman might feel inclined to issue a press release or to secure an interview on radio about some issue. But if the subject matter subsequently leads to a complaint, you’ve compromised yourself. You’ve given the perception that you have made a decision. It’s hard to find issues where it is safe to comment.”

So that explains why Feeney has been low-profile over the past eight years. As his term comes to an end, though, he is prepared to be more voluble. His most surprising statement? “You would have questions about the future validity of the Press Council, because as everything goes digital, what was conceived as a means of dealing with complaints about print may not have the structures in place for digital formats.”

Peter Feeney, the outgoing press ombudsman


Will there even be a printed press to regulate? “I worry about the viability of journalism in Ireland,” he agrees, “because as more of it becomes digital, there are less resources available, and journalism requires resources.” Noting the decline in advertising, and shrinking print circulation, he adds: “The feeding trough is emptying for journalism.”

“Constructive journalism” is a new buzzword, and in that spirit let us praise Feeney for pulling off the tricky balancing act of keeping both the public and press onside. He did this by upholding just the right number of complaints, about one in three. In 2021 he had to decide 31 cases. Twenty complaints he rejected, seven he upheld, and in four cases he decided the newspaper had taken sufficient remedial action. Feeney does not have a quota in his head, but says: “I feel it would be bad if I didn’t uphold a certain number of complaints.”

Contrast that with the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI), which decides on complaints about TV and radio stations, and which went three years without upholding a single one. “It’s impossible to believe broadcasters didn’t make mistakes in those three years,” Feeney says. “I think the credibility of my office would be undermined if the public don’t see that there is a reasonable chance of a complaint being upheld.”

On the other hand newspapers pay for the Press Council and ombudsman — the bill came to €301,810 last year — and if a big title got huffy about a negative ruling, and refused to print it, that could be curtains.

“If a major newspaper or group pulled out, I don’t think the Press Council would survive,” Feeney says. “I have been impressed by the way editors have accepted the independence of the roles, and just put up with a decision they don’t agree with.”

For those still sceptical about the need for a press ombudsman, be aware that newspapers once treated complainants with disdain. They were dismissed as cranks, their letters ignored, their phone calls terminated. Only those with solicitors were taken seriously. That has changed utterly; editors hate losing a Press Council case and will usually take swift action to avoid it.

“If a person has a point,” Feeney says, “rather than get on their high horse and start talking about freedom of expression and the right to publish, editors say, ‘We’ll amend the story online.’” Which, as we know, is all anybody cares about these days.

Killexams : LGBTQ library books to remain despite residents' complaints to council

A total of 44 books have been requested to be banned from the Victoria Public Library, including 21 reevaluated by the library’s advisory board in 2021. The library won’t honor that request.

A group of parents attended the July 19 city council meeting, complaining that some books at the Victoria Public Library were pornographic and harmful to children. They did not respond to requests to talk to them outside the meeting. The list of the 44 books was provided by the library after being approved by City Attorney Allison Lacey.

“Banning books is not a great move for the city, based on freedom,” said Mindy Bergman, head of the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Texas A&M University in College Station.

Bergman said the books, which are all about LGBTQ children and teens, have existed throughout literature’s history.

“Every person has a gender,” Bergman said Wednesday morning. “These books push against the usual ideas. That’s what art and stories have always been about. That’s what these books are about.”

The residents have spoken out against these books in several city council meetings.

In December, members of the Victoria Public Library Advisory Board voted to uphold the library director’s decision to keep all 21 contested books in the library collection. A group of Victoria residents had originally submitted 43 formal citizen request forms for reevaluation of library materials in the summer of 2021. The library’s director denied the requests to remove the materials or move them to a designated area in the library. Twelve residents then appealed the decision for 21 books, requiring the advisory board to make a final decision.

Most of the 21 books belong in the juvenile or young adult sections of the library, and most specifically deal with lesbian, gay or trans issues affecting children or teens.

Victoria Library Director Dayna Williams-Capone said the library needs to retain such books because they are written for often-marginalized communities in Victoria. She said she thought a small group was behind the request to remove the books. All of the books have been retained by the library, Williams-Capone said, but all require the child’s parents sign any books out when requested by a child.

“We follow our own policy,” Williams-Capone said. “We state clearly that the parent signs them out as their parent and guardian. We follow the process.”

Parents concerned about their children memorizing these materials should oversee their children’s memorizing habits, Williams-Capone said.
