Lawsuit Challenges U.N.C.’s Affirmative Action Policies

first_imgThe chance may be hard to resist, agreed Mr. Bagenstos. “Affirmative action is something that’s been a big agenda item of the conservative movement for a long time,” he said. “I think the justices know exactly what they want to do with these cases.”In a referendum vote last week, California voters narrowly approved maintaining the state’s ban on affirmative action in college admissions, indicating some softness in public opinion on the issue even in a liberal state. The Trump administration filed a case against Yale in October, and a newly seated Biden administration — which is expected to support affirmative action policy — could choose to review and drop that case, experts said.“I think the Biden administration is going to take a really careful look at the Yale case,” said Samuel Bagenstos, a law professor at the University of Michigan, and a principal deputy assistant attorney general for civil rights in the Obama administration.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –center_img However, Students for Fair Admissions has petitioned the court to add it as a plaintiff in the Yale case, a move that, if approved, would keep the case alive even if the Biden administration drops out. The Trump administration has also filed an amicus brief in the Harvard case that the Biden administration might withdraw, but that would not prevent the case from proceeding.Now that the Supreme Court has a 6-3 conservative majority, including the Trump appointees Brett M. Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Neil M. Gorsuch, it has a chance to make the biggest change in affirmative action admissions in more than 40 years, when it forbade the use of racial quotas but supported the principle of diversity.“I think there are six votes on the Supreme Court to dramatically limit affirmative action and to overrule earlier decisions allowing it, and that’s going to be true whether it’s Trump or Biden,” said Erwin Chemerinsky, a constitutional law scholar and dean of the University of California, Berkeley, law school.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Govt to disburse money to laid-off workers, families to curb economic impacts of COVID-19

first_imgProgram participants will receive Rp 1 million per month (US$ 61) for three to four months. To protect the economy from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government has decided to speed up the disbursement of training funds for workers through the preemployment card program, as well as increase the allowance provided to low-income families.Originally slated for April, the preemployment card program’s launch has been brought forward to this Friday.“Several sectors have started layoffs. [The program will] support laid-off workers as well as day laborers and micro-businesses that have seen a decline in sales. We hope that those affected by the COVID-19 outbreak can learn a new skill or improve their skills,” President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo said in a virtual press briefing on Tuesday. The government has allocated Rp 10 trillion for the program, which is expected to provide training to about 2 million people.Earlier, Coordinating Economic Minister Airlangga Hartarto said online training would be available nationwide while offline training sessions would be available in Riau, Bali, North Sulawesi and Surabaya in East Java during the program’s first phase of implementation.The President has also announced an increase in the amount of aid given to families enrolled in the Family Hope Program (PKH) for the next six months.“The allowance has been increased from Rp 150,000 to Rp 200,000 for each family. The allocation fund is Rp 4.5 trillion,” said Jokowi, adding that the program could cater to around 20 million low-income families. (aly)Topics :last_img read more

El Gobernador Wolf anuncia que los restaurantes pueden aumentar la ocupación en interiores al 50% a partir del 21 de septiembre

first_img Economy,  Español,  Press Release,  Public Health Los restaurantes deben autocertificar que cumplen con las órdenes correspondientes En el día de la fecha, el Gobernador Tom Wolf anunció que los restaurantes pueden aumentar la ocupación en interiores al 50% a partir del 21 de septiembre. Con el fin de garantizar que estas empresas operen de manera segura mientras Pennsylvania continúa mitigando la propagación de la COVID-19, y para inspirar en los clientes y los empleados la confianza de saber que pueden comer sin peligro, los restaurantes se comprometerán a cumplir estrictamente con todas las guías y pedidos de seguridad de salud pública a través de un proceso de autocertificación.“Si bien nuestras medidas de mitigación agresivas y apropiadas han mantenido el recuento de casos bajo, debemos continuar tomando medidas importantes para proteger la salud y la seguridad públicas mientras nos acercamos al otoño. Al mismo tiempo, también debemos apoyar a la industria de servicios de alimentos minoristas que ha luchado a través de esta pandemia”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “La autocertificación garantiza que los restaurantes puedan expandir su funcionamiento en interiores y comprometerse con todas las órdenes adecuadas para que los empleados y los clientes por igual puedan estar seguros de que están debidamente protegidos”.Los restaurantes que se autocertifiquen aparecerán en la base de datos en línea “Open & Certified Pennsylvania” que admite búsquedas de restaurantes certificados en todo el estado. Los consumidores podrán acceder a esta base de datos y encontrar comercios certificados en su zona, lo que garantiza que los consumidores puedan tomar decisiones más informadas sobre los establecimientos de alimentos que buscan frecuentar.Los documentos de autocertificación y la información sobre el programa Open & Certified Pennsylvania se pueden encontrar en Internet a partir del 21 de septiembre. Contendrán lo siguiente:• Una lista de los requisitos contenidos en la actual guía de la industria de restaurantes y las medidas de aplicación;• Una declaración de que el propietario ha revisado estos requisitos y se compromete a seguirlos;• El número máximo de ocupación en interiores de la empresa según el código de incendios; y• Una declaración de que el propietario comprende que la certificación está sujeta a sanciones debido a la falsificación no jurada a las autoridades.Cualquier restaurante que desee aumentar su capacidad en interiores al 50% el 21 de septiembre debe completar el proceso de autocertificación en Internet antes del 5 de octubre. Los dueños de negocios deben conservar una copia de la confirmación de la autocertificación que recibirán por correo electrónico. Se debe implementar el distanciamiento social, el uso de máscaras y otras medidas de mitigación para proteger a los trabajadores y a los clientes. Asimismo, a partir del 21 de septiembre, los restaurantes que venden alcohol cerrarán la venta de alcohol a las 10:00 p.m.Además, a los restaurantes que se autocertifiquen se les enviarán por correo materiales distintivos de Open & Certified Pennsylvania, como adhesivos para ventanas y otro tipo de carteles que designen su certificación, que pueden mostrar a los clientes y empleados.La autocertificación se utilizará como parte de las medidas de cumplimiento vigentes convenidas por el Departamento de Agricultura y la Oficina de Control de Bebidas Alcohólicas de la Policía Estatal de Pennsylvania, y se compartirá con los departamentos de Estado, Trabajo e Industria y Salud, y otros organismos de cumplimiento de la ley. Los restaurantes que funcionen al 50% de su capacidad tendrán que verificar el estado de autocertificación como parte de la aplicación continua de estos organismos a partir del 5 de octubre, y se centrarán en la concienciación de las empresas. El estado continuará con su enfoque mesurado para aliviar las restricciones al tiempo que mantiene vigente el resto de las tácticas de mitigación específicas dirigidas a la industria minorista de alimentos a medida que los restaurantes aumentan la capacidad al 50%Por otra parte, la inclusión de un restaurante en la base de datos de restaurantes Open & Certified Pennsylvania demuestra que se preocupa por sus clientes, sus empleados, la comunidad y el futuro económico del estado.El proceso de autocertificación se diseñó en base a una medida de mitigación similar en Connecticut, y la limitación de ventas de alcohol se inspiró en una medida de mitigación similar en Ohio.Es crucial que los restaurantes fomenten la confianza del consumidor, ya que según el estudio de seguimiento de los viajeros estadounidenses más reciente de Longwoods International, solo el 40% de ellos se sienten cómodos comiendo en restaurantes locales.“Reconocemos las consecuencias que la pandemia de COVID-19 ha tenido en las pequeñas empresas de Pennsylvania, especialmente en nuestros restaurantes”, agregó el Gobernador Wolf. “A través de este proceso de autocertificación, la industria de restaurantes de nuestro estado garantizará la seguridad y el bienestar tanto de los empleados como de los clientes, y podrá comenzar a regresar a su funcionamiento normal y a la recuperación financiera”.Los propietarios de restaurantes que tengan preguntas adicionales sobre el programa de autocertificación pueden comunicarse con covidselfcert@pa.gov.En el mes de julio, siguiendo las recomendaciones del gobierno federal y en respuesta al aumento de los casos de COVID-19, el Gobernador Wolf y la Secretaria de Salud, Dra. Rachel Levine, firmaron órdenes sobre medidas de mitigación específicas para todas las empresas de Pennsylvania en la industria de servicios de alimentos, incluidos restaurantes, vinerías, cervecerías, clubes privados y bares. El estado y los organismos locales continuaron e incluso aumentaron las medidas correspondientes de cumplimiento.El Gobernador ha instado a la Asamblea General a apoyar su plan para contribuir con la recuperación adicional de pequeñas empresas, que incluye la propuesta de $100 millones de dólares en préstamos y subvenciones condonables para las industrias de la hospitalidad, el ocio y los servicios.El Gobernador también instó al Congreso a brindar rápidamente ayuda financiera a los restaurantes de la nación mediante la aprobación de la Ley de Apoyo económico real que reconoce que la asistencia única de restaurante es necesaria para sobrevivir (Ley RESTAURANTES). El proyecto de ley bipartidista en el Congreso otorga $120 mil millones de dólares para ayudar a los restaurantes independientes con los retos económicos generados por la pandemia de COVID-19.View this information in English.

Top Robeco execs depart amid corporate restructuring

first_imgDavid Steyn, who only began as chief executive of Robeco Groep and chairman of its management board in November last year, has already left and will join the ORIX Group as part of the changes.Bert Bruggink, chairman of the Robeco Groep supervisory board, has also gone and will join the ORIX Group, the company said. Under the new structure, Robeco Groep said Robeco Institutional Asset Management will have its own supervisory board and executive management.It said this would emphasise its position as an autonomous global asset manager, under the name Robeco, headquartered in Rotterdam.The other part of the new structure will be Robeco Groep, which will be changed into a financial holding company from an operating company.Makoto Inoue, president and chief executive of ORIX Corporation, said the new structure would allow Robeco’s investment talent “to flourish and help Robeco to further expand on its strong foundation”.The company believes it will also further separate the holding activities of Robeco Groep and the asset management businesses of its subsidiaries, Boston Partners, Harbor Capital Advisors, Transtrend, RobecoSAM and Robeco. “The new structure reflects current global industry and market trends, guaranteeing continued expertise in investments, distribution and client servicing,” the company said.A spokeswoman for Robeco said the new structure had arisen from studying industry best-practice across the world, and detailed discussion between management and supervisory board members, shareholders and regulatory authorities. “As a result, the changes bring the governance structure of the business fully into line with AIFMD guidelines for Robeco,” she said.Investment strategies, the teams running them and client servicing at Robeco will all remain as they are.The supervisory board of Robeco will consist of Jeroen Kremers as chairman, and Jan Nooitgedagt and Gihan Ismail, with further members being announced soon.Kremers and Nooitgedagt are members of the Robeco Groep supervisory board now, and Ismail is currently executive director at Marine Capital.The company said the day-to-day management of Robeco would remain with Boeren, Roland Toppen, Peter Ferket, Ingo Ahrens and Karin van Baardwijk, who formed its executive committee, with Boeren leaving the group after leading the transition.The Robeco spokesperson said the company aimed to appoint a chairman of the executive committee of Robeco Institutional Asset Management in the near future. The supervisory and management boards of the newly transformed financial holding company Robeco Groep will be replaced by a “simplified financial holding board” chaired by ORIX chief Inoue, subject to regulatory approval.With Bruggink and Steyn already having left the two boards, the other members of the Robeco Groep supervisory board will step down once the transition to the new structure is completed.At the end of last month, Robeco announced the sudden departure of executive board members Hester Borrie and Hans Rademaker, who were head of global distribution and marketing and CIO, respectively.In December, Robeco announced it was opening a London office, saying the city was a key hub for the institutional and wholesale investment business globally. Three leaders at Dutch asset manager Robeco Groep are to leave the company in a corporate restructuring that will see the business divide activities into a clearly labelled asset management company and a financial holding company.Robeco Groep, which had €262bn in assets under management at the end of March, will separate its activities into Robeco Institutional Asset Management and Robeco Group.Japanese financial services group ORIX Corporation bought around 90% of Robeco from its former owner Rabobank in February 2013.Leni Boeren, who has been a member of the management board of Robeco Groep for 11 years and is chair of the executive committee of Robeco Institutional Asset Management, is to leave the group when the transition is finished.last_img read more

Students have told her she will go to hell.Now she is fighting back. She spoke out today at the Post Primary Teachers Association conference in support of a call for the Ministry of Education to issue new guidelines to make schools safe for “students, whānau and staff of minority genders and sexualities”.The association wants the guidelines to include gender-neutral toilets and gender-neutral uniform options in all schools.Grant, 29, trained as a statistician and gave up her job as a data analyst in Wellington to train as a maths teacher on the job at Onehunga High School this year under the Teach First scheme.She had never worn a school uniform, attended the uniform-free Wellington High School, which she described as “the most liberal school in the country”, and said she had never experienced serious homophobia before.“My whole life was this beautiful liberal bubble,” she said.“Then I moved to South Auckland. I have really been struggling.“My classroom has been graffitied with homophobia twice. I’ve had a few students come up to me and tell me I’m a sinner and I’ll go to hell.“But I’m a visitor to South Auckland.
