Sharing Poem Amidst Tragedy We’re Experiencing…

first_imgEvening falls recently over downtown Los Alamos. Photo by Carol A. Clark/ladailypost.comBy JOE STANEK Los AlamosI’m just an average fellow that lives and works on the hill and I thought I’d attempt to share some words, a poem, that came to me last night amidst the tragedy that we are experiencing:​Houses​​My breath is but a candle light​the in and the out ​of the light and the darkness​Yet taken for granted​for measure by measure​​If the eye is the window​then the lung is the house​But in a house is a ceiling and a floor​​And if candles are people​they are locked in their houses​​And many candles have gone out of them​​Houses with mantles and candles gone out​While others grow dim​​Let the lighted breath continue to burn​in remembrance of those no longer breathing​​And houses untouched ​give honor​to those touched​​And have empathy, compassion,​and sorrow and tears​​And let the breath of our light continue to shine​into the darkness for those​flames now gone out​​My flame flickers​by their breath now gone out​and they whisper to us​​Live​​As our houses are shaking​As our windows are wet​​From here till tomorrow​We’ll not soon forget​​To do better​To awaken​To change​To graduate​​And apply the lessons​and to ask the questions​​And to wonder ​Why​​​–Joe Staneklast_img read more

Teacher Of Year Mandi Torrez Urges New Mexico Educational Retirement Board Trustees To Divest From For-Profit Prisons

first_imgBy MANDI TORREZ2020 Teacher of the YearI first heard the term “school-to-prison pipeline” during my first year in graduate school when I was switching careers and moving into education. My professor gave us an article that included how one southern state was using third grade test scores to plan for the prison inmate capacity it would need heading into the future.Let that sink in.I am a third grade teacher and when I look at my bouncing, bubbly students, I see potential not profit, and I do not know of a teacher who feels differently. So as educators, it is time that we ask why our pension fund is being invested in for-profit prisons, a move that goes against the very grain of what teachers like me stand for, which is to empower all children to thrive in society instead of leaving them to fall victim to an unfair justice system.This is why I am asking the New Mexico Educational Retirement Board Trustees to vote during its Aug. 14 meeting to divest from for-profit prisons.This is an opportunity for the trustees to honor the request of thousands of their vested members and put the NMERB on the right side of history.According to the American Civil Liberties Union, our incarcerated population has increased by 700% since 1970. This steep rise outpaces both population growth and crime. It’s safe to say that one reason is because for-profit prisons rely on cells to be filled in order to make their business model work. The plight of underserved populations should not be for sale.Neither should the plight of children or any human being, especially those who seek only safety and freedom. Yet, according to the Santa Fe Dreamers Project, more than 70% of immigrants being detained in the United States are in for-profit prisons. Many are refugees trying to escape violence and death in their home Countries, oftentimes brought on by historic U.S. actions. The conditions in which they are detained are deplorable and many are forced to stay for extended lengths of time while they await an asylum hearing.We are failing on our moral standards as a country. The ACLU reports that the U.S. imprisons more people — both per capita and in absolute terms — than any other nation in the world, including Russia, China, and Iran. Our teachers should  not be forced to play a part in this. We should not prop up companies that bank on our system failing vulnerable, underserved populations.Companies and cities around the country already have divested funds from for-profit prison corporations like GEO Group. The California State Teachers Retirement System made this move, as did Columbia University and Georgetown University.Having our hand in prison profits sends a terrible message about where the priorities lie in our state. As educators, we must support healing communities and seeking true partnerships, not contribute to a system that just might one day claim our students. Divesting from for-profit prisons will help dismantle those pipelines that lead from schools to prison. Dismantling injustice is why I signed up for classroom duty. How about you? Mandi Torrez is a third grade teacher at Placitas Elementary and on sabbatical to carry out duties as the 2020 New Mexico Teacher of the Year.last_img read more

A life less private

first_imgWhat do the former head of the IMF and an English footballer have in common? Well in the last fortnight, issues around what private information is in the public interest, and what is not, have swirled around both men. And as government, parliament, the press and the judiciary struggle with these issues, they should all have both cases, and cases like them, in mind. The same issues arise with regard to allegations surrounding the private life of Sir Fred Goodwin. It is often pointed out that what members of the public are interested in is different to the public interest. The English footballer who is alleged to have had an affair with a reality-TV star, and then taken out a ‘super-injunction’ to keep the episode out of the media, would seem to support this point. More of that below, but for now let us say that any argument that this is a ‘public interest’ story is on the weak side of this spectrum. Goodwin is more problematic though, and his was a super-injunction that disquieted parliamentarians, used as they are to operating with the freedom from liability that comes with the protection of parliamentary privilege. And here is the problem – for public figures, private sex may be bound up very closely with the public interest. It is remarkable that we should be surprised by this five decades on from the Profumo scandal. The fact of an affair, infidelity or sexual assault opens a public figure to the risk of blackmail and other pressures. It creates the possibility of indiscretions, and may lead to decisions or actions that go against the better judgement of a powerful public figure. Dominique Strauss-Khan has not taken out an injunction of any kind. So, following his arrest in New York for an alleged sexual assault, which he denies, what is the former head of the IMF doing on this list? Well his arrest was followed by reports of other alleged incidents of inappropriate behaviour. He denies all these allegations; but the episode is focusing on the protection afforded by France’s strict privacy laws and how appropriate they are in relation to the due diligence carried out on key public figures. Thus far, that points towards the public interest being served by a lowered respect for privacy. Maybe, but consider this. Some of the ‘entertainment’ that comes from the private lives of footballers used to be provided more regularly by ‘ordinary’ people. Open an old copy of the Daily Telegraph, for example, and you’ll find reports on he titillating details of people’s private lives, and intrusions into private misery provided as ‘court reports’ – articles embarrassing, shaming and outing people who had never before been in a newspaper. From a certain angle, it is ‘fairer’ to write about celebrities, much of the gossip about whom is manufactured or released with their consent. Does it matter if people gain the same interest and enjoyment from a celebrity similacrum as they used to more regularly gain from salacious court reports? Maybe not. But if the public’s only digestible account of human behaviour is an entirely manufactured one, and that account informs their world view – of each other, of celebrities, of politicians and business people – then over time that is also a problem. A little disinfecting sunlight is surely needed, even if doesn’t seem to be in the best possible taste. And what of Twitter and parliamentary privilege? Parliament and the judiciary will likely find their own accommodation over issues of parliamentary privilege, questions on which parliament can ultimately pull rank. But those who back strict privacy laws should note that the existence of Twitter, and other social media, means that tight privacy and reporting laws have unintended consequences. As Jemima Khan and Jeremy Clarkson, who really were no more than friends, found out, the very existence of privacy laws and super-injunctions make it harder to rely on an earnest assertion of innocent conduct.last_img read more
