Suit alleges Motel 6 discriminated against Latino customers

first_imgPHOENIX – A civil rights group sued Motel 6 on Tuesday, alleging it discriminated against some Latino customers at two locations in Phoenix by giving their whereabouts and personal information to U.S. immigration agents who later arrested at least seven guests.The lawsuit by the Mexican American Legal Defence and Educational Fund said Motel 6 had a corporate policy or practice of giving Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents information that guests provided at check-in.It also alleges that Motel 6 provided such information without requiring authorities to get a warrant or without having a reasonable suspicion that crimes were being committed.“We are seeking to deter any (law enforcement) operation of this sort,” said Thomas Saenz, president of the civil rights group.Motel 6 declined to comment on the lawsuit but said in a statement that it takes guests’ privacy seriously.The national budget motel chain said in September that its Phoenix employees will no longer work with immigration authorities after the Phoenix New Times newspaper reported that workers were providing guests’ names to agents who later arrested 20 people on immigration charges.In a tweet at the time, Motel 6 said: “This was implemented at the local level without the knowledge of senior management.”Earlier this month, the Washington state attorney general sued the chain, saying it had violated a state consumer protection law by providing the private information of thousands of guests to immigration agents without a warrant.The lawsuit alleged Motel 6 was aware that agents used the registration information to single out guests based on their national origin. Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s office began investigating after news reports about the Phoenix case.The chain has said it had told its more than 1,400 locations that they were prohibited from voluntarily providing guest lists to immigration authorities.The Phoenix lawsuit was filed in federal court on behalf of eight unnamed Latinos who stayed at two Motel 6 locations in the city during June and July. All but one of the eight was arrested.ICE agents visited some of the guests at their motel rooms a day after they showed passports, driver’s licenses or identification cards issued by the Mexican government to Motel 6 employees, according to the lawsuit.As a result, one woman was deported from the United States, while a man spent 30 days in a detention centre until he could raise a $7,500 bond. In two instances, ICE agents laughed when guests asked them whether Motel 6 had provided their personal information, the lawsuit said.It said the eight guests had a reasonable expectation that their information would not be shared with federal authorities and alleged that the discrimination was made because of their race or national origin.The Latinos who sued said they suffered emotional distress, fear and humiliation.They are seeking undisclosed financial damages and are asking a judge to declare the information sharing a violation of anti-discrimination law and constitutional protections against unreasonable searches and seizures.Immigration and Customs Enforcement wasn’t targeted in the lawsuit. Yasmeen Pitts O’Keefe, a spokeswoman for the agency’s operation in Arizona, declined to comment on it.___Follow Jacques Billeaud at twitter.com/jacquesbilleaud.

BJP banks on sitting MP Rao Inderjit Singh for Gurugram

first_imgGurugram: BJP has once again relied on Rao Inderjit Singh for Gurugram Lok Sabha constituency seat. After the BJP announced his name on Saturday, Singh will be hoping to win from the Gurugram seat for the fifth time. Rao Inderjit is the son of Rao Birender Singh who has also won from the Gurugram seat a number of times.In 1998, Rao Inderjit Singh contested from Congress and won. His victory was shortlived as in 1999 he was defeated by Sudha Yadav from BJP who besides being a tall leader of the saffron party is also the widow of Sukhbir Singh Yadav, a martyr in Kargil war. In 2004, Rao Inderjit defeated Sudha Yadav and from thereon he has been winning the Gurugram Lok Sabha seat regularly from Congress and BJP seats. In 2014, Rao Inderjit for the first time fought on BJP ticket and won by more than one lakh votes. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderDespite being a prominent leader nationally, Rao Inderjit in the past has not shied away in expressing his displeasure on the workings of the state government. Recently, he disagreed with the state government policy of moving the substantial portion of Aravallis out of the Punjab land and preservation act (PLPA). He has also stated several times that it is the Central government that has played a much greater part in revamping the city’s infrastructure by improving roads and connectivity. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsThough Rao Birender Singh and his son have had a formidable record in winning the Ahirwal belt maximum number of times, they have been defeated a few times. After the emergency, Rao Birender Singh of Congress was defeated by lawyer Manohar Lal Saini from Janata Party. Later in 1980 elections, Saini was defeated by Rao Birender Singh. The victorious reign of Rao Birender Singh carried on with huge wins in 1984 and 1989 elections. The tides for Rao Birender Singh changed in 1991 elections when he was defeated by Colonel Ram Singh, a retired Army soldier who had represented India in 1962 and 1965 war with China and Pakistan respectively. Colonel Singh was instrumental in ensuring BJP win for the first time in the belt when he defeated Rao Birender Singh in 1996 General elections. This is for the last time Rao Birender Singh contested in the General elections.last_img read more

Worsening security hampering relief effort in Somalia says UN

Efforts to help Somalis who have been forced to flee their homes due to the violence engulfing their nation have never been as restricted as they are now, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said today. Roadblocks, shelling and attacks in the capital Mogadishu, along with rising threats against and targeting of aid workers, have severely limited the humanitarian community’s ability to operate, according to OCHA.Just last week, a roadside bomb near the southern Somali town of Kismayo killed three humanitarian workers serving with the international non-governmental organization (NGO) Médecins Sans Frontières.The worsening security situation has also led to an increase in the vulnerable population. Over the past two months, some 40,000 people have fled Mogadishu. The UN refugee agency (UNHCR) puts the total number of those displaced by the ongoing fighting since the end of last October at over 294,000.OCHA has stressed the urgent need for the political and security issues in the troubled Horn of Africa nation to be addressed “in a robust way to create an environment conducive for humanitarian response and eventual recovery.” 5 February 2008Efforts to help Somalis who have been forced to flee their homes due to the violence engulfing their nation have never been as restricted as they are now, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said today. read more

Empowering women through media explored at UN meeting in Beirut

Addressing participants, the Executive Secretary of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), Mervat Tallawy, said the media, with all the technological advancement within its reach, could help in transforming the traditions and customs which have greatly hampered the advancement of Arab women.”We hope the media will change … the negative and stereotypical image of women,” Ms. Tallawy said. She hailed the numerous UN conferences which have helped improve conditions facing women and said media should begin according priority to women’s issues.In an opening statement, Lebanon’s Minister of Information, Ghazi Aridi, said the media, which has an important role to play in influencing public opinion, should shed light on the problems that women face around the world. At the same time, she warned against attempts to use the plight of women only to promote State policies, citing the example of Afghanistan. Afghan women had been oppressed for years under the Taliban regime, but their plight was only highlighted when a war was being planned in the country. Speaking on behalf of the UN Department of Public Information (DPI), Therese Gastaut, Director of its Strategic Communications Division, said the UN was taking a two-pronged approach to the issue, advocating women’s increased participation and access to the media, while promoting a balanced and non-stereotyped portrayal of women. She said DPI will be looking to the results of the four-day meeting as it strives to improve its communication programmes for the advancement of women. The event was organized by the UN’s Division for the Advancement of Women in collaboration with DPI, ESCWA and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). read more

New challenges await Guerrero Jr as top prospect joins Blue Jays

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. destroyed minor-league pitching at every level, improved his defence enough to look like a viable big-league third baseman and kept saying the right things even as injuries and service time games slowed his inevitable arrival to the major-leagues.My son! The country that saw you as a child will now see you turn into a big one.Working hard everything can be done. I’m proud of you! Love you! pic.twitter.com/WJyLBVKWoR— Vladimir Guerrero (@VladGuerrero27) April 25, 2019Now the hard part begins. When Guerrero Jr. makes his Blue Jays debut Friday against the Oakland Athletics, he’ll face a new challenge: putting it all together against the best competition in the world, not just for a day but week after week and month after month. Every early mistake will be scrutinized, while any early successes will raise expectations even further.“It’s a big moment for the Toronto Blue Jays,” manager Charlie Montoyo said. “He’s the number one prospect in baseball … hopefully he becomes what everyone thinks he can become.”It’s time. #LetsGoBlueJays pic.twitter.com/e0Pj918i58— Toronto Blue Jays (@BlueJays) April 24, 2019No pressure, though. Guerrero Jr. finished up his stint at triple-A by going two for five with an opposite-field home run Wednesday. Through 33 plate appearances at the highest level of the minors, he has a .367 average with a 1.124 OPS.But really that’s hardly surprising for Guerrero Jr., the top prospect in the minors. Fair or not, that level of offence was expected of him at triple-A. It’s perhaps equally significant that on Wednesday he played in three consecutive games for the first time since returning to action from the oblique issue that sidelined him this spring.Because Guerrero Jr. has been injured twice in the last calendar year, his conditioning remains a variable worth watching as he arrives in Toronto. Knee and oblique issues sidelined him for weeks at a time, slowing his development. That means the Blue Jays will monitor his workload carefully, mixing in regular days off to guard against fatigue.“I honestly think he’s going to do well,” Montoyo said. “But whatever happens we have to be patient. Defensively, offensively. Because he’s 20-years-old.”Right, his defence. On the field, Guerrero Jr.’s glove remains a critical variable for the Blue Jays. Long-term, they gain massive value if Guerrero Jr. can stay at third base. If that happens, the team keeps first base available for another offence-first player and designated hitter stays open for a rotating cast.Can Guerrero Jr. play third in the big-leagues right now? Sure–the Blue Jays have already discussed how they’ll position him on various shifts. But while the likes of Kris Bryant and Alex Bregman completed their defensive development in college and the minors, Guerrero Jr.’s will finish on a big-league field. Third base coach Luis Rivera likely has some early afternoon infield sessions in his future.With questions still lingering around Guerrero Jr.’s conditioning and defence, some of his development will have to happen at the major-league level. That’s not necessarily ideal, but the Blue Jays are still in a great spot here with the most exciting prospect in baseball about to join their lineup. And make no mistake: from a hitting standpoint, he’s ready to contribute right now.“I think so,” Montoyo agreed. “I think he’ll come here and do well, for sure.”The smoothest transitions happen when players are ready in all facets of the game. In this case, Guerrero’s bat outpaces the rest, so we’ll likely see occasional mistakes on the field once he does arrive. Behind the scenes, the Blue Jays’ strength coaches and nutritionists will work to keep him physically ready for the challenge of a long season.Considering all those variables, Guerrero Jr.’s arrival in Toronto won’t be a coronation. It’ll be the beginning of a new set of challenges, some of which he has more experience with than others. How Guerrero Jr. responds will determine his own path ahead as a big-leaguer while impacting the Blue Jays’ direction as much as any one player can.Once Guerrero Jr. arrives in Toronto, he’ll have a day to get his bearings in his new home ballpark. Maybe he’ll set up his locker or get settled in a hotel room. At some point along the way, he’ll meet with his manager and when he does the message will be simple.“Just relax and play,” Montoyo will say. “Do your best. And he will.” read more

Maptek relaunches open pit scheduler as Maptek Evolution

first_imgMining solutions developer Maptek has re-launched the open pit scheduler which it acquired from Orelogy in 2014, as Maptek Evolution. This contains strategic, tactical planning and optimisation tools for preparing development plans and medium to long term mine schedules. The software runs on a cloud-based server using genetic algorithms which are ideally suited to multi-objective problems such as scheduling. “Processing schedules within a single solution and leveraging the cloud is 10 times faster than traditional methods,” said Maptek Mine Scheduling Manager Steve Craig. “Many iterations are run to analyse the most relevant solution for a particular set of data inputs and operating conditions. Planning teams can concentrate on developing the scenarios that add value.“Evolution employs cut-off grade optimisation which is the single most effective task that can add value to a project,” continued Craig. “This optimisation accounts for the complex geo-metallurgical environment, balancing mining, milling and refining capacity constraints to maximise value, and does it extremely efficiently. This complicated process is now encapsulated in a straightforward application, so engineers can readily explore where value can be added to their projects.”Evolution’s tactical approach generates a production schedule while also optimising the haulage fleet and the shape of waste landforms. This results in the optimised allocation of haul routes with calculated cycle times, productivity and fuel burns. Scheduling across planning horizons helps operations hit blending targets and meet customer specifications. “Holistic scheduling ensures optimised haulage routes and grade/tonnage consistency throughout the mine life. Mine planners and management can feel confident that their decisions are based on profitability right from the start of their project. Yet there’s flexibility to adapt to fluctuating commodity prices,” he added. “Engineers always look for practical solutions. The integration of Evolution with Maptek Vulcan mine planning software will provide the necessary tools. Our first project is phase optimisation, a tool which is in high demand for finding the most practical phase design for a schedule.”Recent sales in South America represent a significant milestone for Evolution, affirming its place among Maptek mining solutions.last_img read more

Googles new US data centers will run on 16 million solar panels

first_img Share your voice Tags 5 Comments Google Google plans to purchase 100 percent renewable energy for its data centers and offices in the US and around the world.  Google Google will amp up its expansion in the southeastern US with millions of solar panels. Google wants the electricity consumed by its new data centers in Yum Yum, Tennessee, and Hollywood, Alabama, to be “matched with 100 percent renewable energy from day one.” To meet this goal, the search giant said Wednesday it’s struck a multi-year deal with the Tennessee Valley Authority to purchase output from several new solar farms, which will total 413 megawatts of power from 1.6 million solar panels. The two largest solar farms will produce roughly 150 megawatts each, according to a Google blog post. They’ll be among the largest renewable energy projects in the Tennessee Valley region, Google said, and the biggest solar farms ever built for the search giant.Google said in 2016 that the company planned to source carbon-free electricity on a 24/7 basis for each data center. The search giant tried to reach 100 percent renewable energy purchasing goal in 2017. So far, Google has sourced carbon-free energy for its data centers in Finland, Netherlands, Taiwan, North Carolina and Iowa, according to Google’s October 2018 report. Tech Enabled: CNET chronicles tech’s role in providing new kinds of accessibility.CNET Magazine: Check out a sample of the stories in CNET’s newsstand edition.

Largely shielded from crisis tourists still enjoying Greece

first_img How do cataracts affect your vision? ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece is known the world over for its historic sites, sparkling sea, and lovely, vine-shaded restaurants. Add riot police, shuttered banks, and lines at cash machines and the picture clouds.This is the reality facing tourism in Greece this year, as the peak summer season in the popular destination is threatened by a financial crisis of frightening proportions. Up until now, the charming cafes and outdoor restaurants near the Acropolis have remained overflowing with tourists, but considering the bad publicity of the past week’s events, many businesses say they are beginning to see cancellations and a slowdown in reservations. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility “People are waiting before they commit,” she said. “Business is good right now but people are worried because groups are not committing.”The crisis could not have peaked at a worse time from the point of view of the hundreds of thousands of Greeks who depend on income from the frenetic summer months to keep their families going during the slack winter time.Elman Vasileios, manager of the Majestic Travel agency in central Athens, said the bank shutdown has made it impossible for him to conduct business as usual. To make matters worse, major airlines have emailed his agency in the last day telling him he cannot issue any tickets, even to customers with cash.“We cannot operate as we used to because we have no quick access to funds if people pay by credit cards,” he said. “We also have a huge amount of money stuck in the bank that we can’t get access to.”His agency is still accepting credits cards, but it is taking days or weeks for him to be able to get his hands on the money via various electronic bank transfer systems.He has several overlapping problems: Tourists are shortening or cancelling their trips to Greece, and, a substantial number of Greeks concerned about their own finances (and particularly their supply of cash) have cancelled their own summer holidays, traditionally taken on some of the treasured islands that dot the Mediterranean here. Top Stories “Our future bookings are down 20 to 30 percent,” said Edward Fisher, who owns and operates Athens Backpackers and Athens Studios, with prime locations near the Acropolis that cater mostly to youthful travelers without mega-budgets.He blamed the global media for the marked slowdown, and said he believes it will only be a “temporary blip” because of Greece’s timeless appeal.“There’s something mystical about Greece,” said the Australian who started his business 12 years ago. “It tickles a different sense. (…) So we’re not panicking. But I want to avoid a humanitarian crisis here.”Tourism and the foreign funds it generates are vital for Greece’s hoped-for recovery from its deeply indebted state. The World Travel and Tourism Council said tourism’s direct contribution to the Greek economy was more than 29 billion euros ($32 billion) in 2014, accounting for just over 17 percent of the country’s GDP.As such, the Greek National Tourist Board is taking steps to reassure tourists that their credit cards and bank cards will work normally and that restrictions applied to Greek citizens will not apply to visitors. Lyssandros Tsilidis, president of the Hellenic Association of Travel and Tourist Agencies, maintained an optimistic view, saying tourism figures are holding steady nationwide. “Greeks going on holiday this summer have fallen to zero and I mean zero,” he said. “I just had a group of 40 cancel. They don’t have access to their funds and they don’t know when they will. This season has been destroyed. Foreign embassies are warning people about problems so people think twice about coming to Greece.”Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

For having fun, it’s no problem.”John Kopari, visiting from Duluth, Minnesota, added the crisis hasn’t affected him and his family “one bit.”But for those who haven’t yet booked their trips, such assurances are not soothing fears that the ATMs and the banks may soon run out of cash altogether, unless there is an infusion of euros delivered by the European Central Bank or another emergency source.And some restaurants and hotels have posted signs saying they will not accept credit cards, despite the government’s pledges.Tour guide Christina Poulogiani, exhausted after leading German, Austrian and Swiss tourists to the Acropolis in the hot sun, said Tuesday was the busiest day of the year, but that future bookings are in doubt.
