Syracuse fraternity permanently expelled over racist video

Syracuse University announced Saturday that it has permanently expelled a fraternity over an offensive video that fraternity members say was intended as satire.

Chancellor Kent Syverud called the Theta Tau video “racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, ableist and sexist” in a video posted on the university’s website.

He said disciplinary actions against the individual students involved could include suspension or expulsion.

The video showed a group of men laughing uproariously at performances punctuated by racist language against blacks, Jews and Hispanics and simulated sex acts. Some students contend the video illustrates larger issues of racism and sexism at the university.

The Syracuse chapter of Theta Tau, a national engineering fraternity, apologized for the video Friday and says its members believe racism “has no place on a university campus.”

CP Rail strike temporarily averted as unions set to vote on offers

A rail strike has been temporarily averted after the federal labour minister ordered employees of Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. to vote on the company’s final offers, just hours before they were set to walk off the job.

Statements from both CP Rail and two unions representing workers say the minister’s order to administer a ratification vote on each of the two offers follows advice of federal mediators.

In a release late Friday, representatives for the unions recommended that their members reject the company’s offers.

Earlier this week, the Teamsters and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers gave the railway a 72-hour notice of strike action.

CP Rail said in a statement that the minister’s order means there will be no disruption in commuter or freight service.

“CP will immediately begin to execute a safe and structured start-up of its train operations in Canada,” the railway said in a statement Friday night.

However, a statement from the unions says the company’s offers don’t have a “chance in hell of being ratified.”

An electronic vote on the offers will be conducted by the Canada Industrial Relations Boards at an undetermined date.

The unions say if the offers are rejected, workers will be free to strike.

A shut down of CP Rail services would have wide ranging repercussions.

Via Rail Canada had warned passengers Friday that a strike might force it to cancel morning trains on Saturday and Sunday between Sudbury and White River, Ont.

And Greater Toronto transit operator Metrolinx had warned of possible delays for customers on its Milton and Barrie lines. It noted CP also owns a section of corridor leading into the Hamilton GO Centre and train service to and from this station would not be provided, although regular GO bus service would continue and extra buses would be put into service.

The BC Rapid Transit Company said Friday it would provide buses if a CP Rail disruption stopped its West Coast Express train service in the Greater Vancouver area.

VIA Rail and Metrolinx had advised customers to check their websites for updates.

Shocking Report Shows Cancer Patients are Being Euthanized Without Their Consent

A survey of end-of-life decisions for cancer patients involving Flemish physicians has found that in 10.4% of the cases, there was euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide and life shortening without explicit patient request in 1.8%.

The results were published in the British Journal of Cancer and were based on a survey of physicians in Flanders, Belgium, in 2013. The percentages are based, not on cancer deaths, but on the number of end-of-life decisions for the patients. The classification system may seem a bit odd to non-specialists. If the drugs were given with the explicit intention of hastening death, the decision was termed “euthanasia” if “someone other than the patient at the patient ’s explicit request had administered the drugs”; physician-assisted suicide if “drugs had been prescribed or supplied and self-administered”; and “life abbreviation without explicit patient request” if there had been no explicit request from the patient.

The reasons for an end-of-life decision included (along with other motives) the “wish of the family” (28%) and an “unbearable situation for relatives” (12.4%).

Since cancer is the disease most often mentioned as a trigger for a euthanasia request, it is not surprising that requests for euthanasia are higher amongst cancer patients. The authors believe that “in Belgium assisted dying has clearly become a part of medical practice in the care of cancer patients and that the various disciplines of oncology need to be trained in dealing with euthanasia requests”.

The 1.8% of deaths which occurred without explicit request should not alarm anyone about “slippery slopes”, the authors believe. The proportion of such deaths has remained constant ever since euthanasia was legalised in 2002.

However, somewhat confusingly, the authors note that “decision-making took place without the patient’s input in almost 20% of the cases”. These decisions were not necessarily euthanasia; they could have been withholding treatment or aggressive pain relief. But as the authors note, it is still unethical.

German 7th Grader: ‘I Am Marginalised Because I Am German and Eat Pork’

Bullying in German schools in Berlin’s heavily migrant populated areas has increased drastically with pupils claiming that they are threatened and beaten simply because they are German, and not Muslim.

Teachers in schools across Berlin are voicing concern over bullying from migrant-background Muslim children towards German children who can find themselves in a minority. According to one 7th grader in Berlin’s Schöneberg district, many Muslim migrant-background children bully and beat him simply for being German, Tagesspiegelreports.

In an interview with the newspaper, the unnamed pupil said: “I’m in seventh grade in a high school in Schöneberg. There, I am marginalised because I am German and eat pork. They swear in Turkish and Arabic about me.”

“In German, I am insulted as a son of a bitch or a fucked whore. In addition, I am sometimes beaten and kicked. If I get too close to other boys, they call me gay and kick me,” he added.

 

“Girls in my class are called sluts when they wear strapless shirts. I’ve been trying to change school for many months but can not find a free place to go to school. The school office and the school do not help me,” he said.

As a result of bullying, many teachers in Berlin have spoken out including Hildegard Greif-Gross, director of the Peter Petersen Elementary School in Neukölln, who said that young pupils can be bullied for as little as bringing a ham sandwich to school as part of their packed lunch.

Jewish pupils have also been singled out by bullies in diverse areas. In one case in May of last year, a Jewish pupil in Berlin was forced to change schools because of constant bullying and threats that eventually led to him being beaten by other pupils.

 

The 14-year-old, whose parents had moved to Berlin from the UK, put their son in a diverse school which he initially enjoyed until his fellow pupils found out he was Jewish.

Earlier this week, yet another anti-Semitic attack occurred when a teenager wearing a kippah filmed himself being violently attacked by a Muslim who whipped him with a belt while yelling “Jew!” in Arabic.
