TCU Police Department presents strategy for dealing with an on-campus shooter

Deny. Defend.That’s the TCU Police Department’s three-word tactic for dealing with the potential situation of dealing with an active shooter on campus.(Photo by Kelsey Emery)The police department laid out a strategy Wednesday on what should and shouldn’t be done if there’s a shooter on campus.“The actions that potential victims make in these situations are crucial and often the difference between life and death,” Officer John Marshall said.He advised people to close themselves off from a shooter and showed a video of people in a grocery store hiding and barricading themselves from the shooter.Officer Joe Thornton and Detective Steve Hall said people shouldn’t play dead. They also said people should find the nearest exit or secondary exit like windows, if possible. If exiting isn’t possible, try to remain out of sight and if the opportunity presents itself, try to subdue the gunman.The video urged people to attack weak spots of the body like the eyes, throat and groin. It also suggested that groups work as a team to hold down and detain the assailant until authorities come.Call 9-1-1 only from a safe and secure position. Remember to remain calm while explaining the situation.Prior to the shootings at Columbine High School in 1999, the first tactic taught to officers was to call the SWAT team and secure the building, since then the officers have been taught to respond at their own discretion, said Assistant Chief of TCU Police Robert Rangel.“We’re not waiting to see if someone needs help anymore,” Rangel said. “We have to take immediate action.”Be sure to follow the commands of law enforcement officers once they arrive on the scene, police said.(Photo by Kelsey Emery)No specific areas on campus have been identified as “safe places” for students to go during active shooter situations. However, Marshall said if an active shooter situation were to arise on campus, “it would be raining cops.”“If somehow it went more than 3 to 4 minutes, there’s going to be hundreds of Fort Worth cops responding as well,” Marshall said.last_img read more

Kids to Hire Their Own Counselors at Steve & Kate’s Camps

first_img Subscribe Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * An award-winning children’s day camp known for its guiding philosophy of letting kids decide their own activities today announced plans to dramatically expand its mission of kid-empowerment by directly involving campers in the interview and hiring process for their own camp counselors. Steve & Kate’s Camp,which has grown to include 39 locations in California, Washington and Illinoissince it began operation 33years ago,seasonallyemploys more than 600 college age or older counselors to manage dozens of camp programs from animation and cooking, to stadium sports and water slides.On May 20, regional directors from Steve & Kate’s Camps will invite campers to join them as interview paneliststo choose counselors for the summerof 2013. Kids will grill their prospective counselors with questions that are both prepared in advance and also posed on the fly, just to keep their future mentors on their toes. Camp counselor applicants who pass the Q&A period will then be put to the ultimate interview test—playing games with kids on the interview panel. Though Regional Directors will retain final say on all hires, they will depend heavily on feedback from the kids and debrief on all interviews with them. The Regional Directors will also conduct final pre-employment steps that include extensive reference calls and background checks, but they’ll rely on kids’ opinions to identify that certain “jenesaisquoi” that makes some people naturals to lead groups of kids.“After 32 years of conducting interviews, we decided to put hiring power in the hands of those most impacted by the hiring decisions—the kids,” said owners Steve and Kate Susskind. “Steve &Kate’s Camptradition of giving kids control over their own experience runs deep, and stems from our abiding philosophy that self-directed learning is the best way to learn. Instead of rigid structure,we offer campers a world packed with possibilities, and the tools and gentle guidance to help them become autodidacts. Having kids take part in the counselor interview and hiring process is a fun and groundbreaking extension of our mission to give our campers choice.”At Steve &Kate’s Camp, campers can explore new challenges. One camper dives into stop-motion animation, while another discovers a passion for dance. Or chess. A campercan become engrossed in making the ultimate spaghetti sauce. Or developing Leo Messi-like touch on the soccer pitch.These discoveries are all the more exhilarating because campers make them for themselves. This is a world liberated from adult judgments and expectations, and campers flourish in it.Steve & Kate’s Camp is equally flexible for parents, liberating them from the frustration of weekly sessions. There are two ways to play: The Day Pass and The Membership. Parents can buy any number of Day Passes and use them anytime. Unused paid passes are automatically refunded in full at summer’s end. The Membership is one fee that covers the whole summer and if a camper doesn’t use enough to justify the cost of the Membership his/her account is converted to Day Pass rate and the difference in cost is refunded automatically. Both plans allow families to attend anytime from 7:30 am to 6 pm, at any location and it even includes lunch and snacks.Lunch at Steve & Kate’s is a big deal. Chef Nate Keller, former Executive Chef at Google, has joined the team full-time and has developed a culturally diverse menu based on Italian, Mexican, Japanese, American and French cuisines. Some items are adventurous–coq au vin and eggplant parm–and others are kids’ classics–quesadillas and mac & cheese. He uses local and organic ingredients whenever he can and puts healthy twists on items like sneaking cauliflower into the mac & cheese sauce so that the meal is well balanced. Lunch comes alive thanks to the onsite cooks who fire each dish right before the kids eat.In keeping with the philosophy, campers can choose one of six options each day or eat them all if they are ambitious.Activities include:Studios: Nestled inconspicuously within Steve & Kate’s are six creative hives where campers lose themselves in uninhibited exploration. Inevitably, campers venture into one or more of them. Inside, they find copious supplies and professional equipment. Each studio is available every day at every location.Studios include: Stop-Motion Animation, Music Recording, Building, Dance, Culinary Arts and Style.Weekly specials: Each week there is a mind-blowing new thrill –a hurricane water slide, a zip-line, air cannons, rock climbing, obstacle courses, inflatable hamster wheels, water balloon launchers. Expect the unexpected.Daily specials: Every day of the week has its own special activity. Whether it’s go-kart racing, playing Frisbee® golf, juggling diabolos on a balance board, or traversing a slackline, no two days of the week look the same.Show Specials: At least once a week, campers are surprised with wild new phenomena—a King Cheetah, a stage combat workshop led by child actors, performances by a young dance troupe, a reptile show with a blue tongue skink and a python. Of course it could also be a 10-year old beatboxer. Or a violin prodigy. Dozens of novel acts grace the stage—many performed by inspiring youth as a way of showing what young people are capable of.Pure play: The choices for campers are virtually endless. They have a self-serve supply of books, strategy games like chess and Magic cards, thousands of precision-cut construction blocks, foosball, pogo sticks and stilts. They jump into rounds of dodgeball and capture the flag. And win prizes finding the rubber chicken and at Game Show.Sports: Soccer, hockey, racquet sports and field polo action take place in our custom, kid-sized inflatable stadium, where the ball doesn’t go out and the action rarely stops.Filmmaker-In-Residence: Camp becomes a movie studio lot each day when campers collaborate as actors and crew with our Filmmaker-in-Residence. Films are scripted, shot and edited, then premiered at Camper Showcase across all of the 39 locations.Please Note: Specific dates vary by location and are subject to change depending on school calendars. Camp is closed on July 4th. For location and rate information call 415.389.KIDS or go to http://www.steveandkate.com/fees/.Testimonial:“The children that attend Steve and Kate’s blossom and discover a freedom of identity that, in a way, no other institution I’ve experienced has ever managed. Kids find their thumbprint at Steve and Kate’s. My one complaint is: Where were they when I was a kid?”  ––Andrew Stanton, Academy Award-winning writer/director of Finding Nemo and WALL-ERecent Press:Variety Magazine (March 26, 2013): Free-Form Camp Fires Up Young Minds by Jon WeismanPacific Sun (Best of Marin Issue – April, 2013): Voted Best Summer Day Camp Community News Herbeauty10 Female Celebs Women Love But Men Find UnattractiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Lies You Should Stop Telling Yourself Right NowHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHe Is Totally In Love With You If He Does These 7 ThingsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Lies You Should Stop Telling Yourself Right NowHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyBollywood Star Transformations: 10 Year ChallengeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty15 Beauty Secrets Only Indian Women KnowHerbeautyHerbeauty Personal Living Kids to Hire Their Own Counselors at Steve & Kate’s Camps Steve & Kate:‘After 32 years of conducting interviews, we decided to put hiring power in the hands of those most impacted by the hiring decisions—the kids’ From STAFF REPORTS Published on Friday, May 10, 2013 | 1:54 pm 9 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Make a comment Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenacenter_img EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Photography by John LavittBoaz Rauchwerger and Don Pierro at University Club. Photo by John LavittThe University Club of Pasadena continues to demonstrate its value to the greater community when it accommodated a Vistage International Meeting on April 17. A peer-to-peer membership organization for CEOs and business owners, Vistage International is the most successful venture of its kind with more than 17,000 CEO members in 15 countries. Hosted by James Harwood of Total HR Management and facilitated by Don Pierro of Empower Labs, the meeting featured a powerful talk by renowned speaker Boaz Rauchwerger.A former Vistage Speaker of the Year, Boaz Rauchwerger crisscrosses the country to speak to a variety of groups about how achieving true success comes from within. Rauchwerger believes that attitude is everything because, “I don’t get what I hope for or wish for: I get what I expect.” By expecting and believing in the best, by highlighting opportunity, a business owner can create the groundwork for true success in a company.In front of the gathered group of Southern California CEOs and company owners, many from Pasadena, Boaz Rauchwerger kept pointing to a single word written in bold letters on poster board with an impressive exclamation point – “Unbelievable!” He explained how whenever you are asked how you are doing or how your business is doing, this should always be your response. Even if thing are not so great, it still covers the proverbial bases while giving a very positive impression to the other person.Since a business runs at the speed of its leader, business owners always need to do what has to be done whether they like it or not. Such challenges only can be effectively overcome through a positive attitude and true belief in a company’s ultimate success. Boaz Rauchwerger also pointed out the importance of asking questions as opposed to doing all the talking. By asking questions, you take control of a conversation and you learn the informational cues you need to succeed.Truly appreciative of his insight and energy, the Vistage International members left the University Club with big smiles and a renewed sense of purpose. Once again, as a true asset in the ongoing success of Pasadena, the University Club hosted an event worth remembering. Since taking over a President of the Board of Directors, James Harwood has delivered on the University Club’s original compact of being a social hub for the Pasadena community.About the AuthorGrowing up in New York City as a stutterer, John Lavitt embraced writing as a way to express himself when the words would not come.

Existing-Home Sales Expected to Inch Upward in January

first_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Tory Barringer in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Existing-Home Sales Expected to Inch Upward in January January 26, 2015 1,152 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post Share Save Sign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago An early forecast of existing-home sales projects a minor bump in transaction activity this month following December’s modest gain.Based on company transactional data and Google search activity, Auction.com predicted Monday that existing-home sales in January will come in at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.06 million, just slightly above the National Association of Realtors’ (NAR) December estimate of 5.04 million. The company’s range of predictions includes a lower forecast of 4.90 million annual sales and an upper forecast of 5.21 million sales.”There’s nothing pointing towards a quantum leap in January home sales,” said Rick Sharga, EVP for Auction.com. “Demand continues to be tepid, reflected by the relatively weak search activity that we’re tracking in Google Trends data. And inventory levels of available homes continue to fall, which means that even if demand picks up, there might not be enough homes to meet it.”In its latest look at resale data, NAR reported that the stock of available existing homes for sale was around 1.85 million in December, putting the national supply at 4.4 months at the current sales rate.Also challenging the housing market right now are stringent credit conditions, stagnant wages, and “lingering wariness about homeownership benefits,” said Auction.com’s chief economist, Peter Muoio.Oil-producing states also have their own problems to contend with prices per barrel on the decline.”White-hot sales growth in Texas has well outpaced U.S. existing home sales growth over the past three years, pushing the Texas share of U.S. existing home sales up to a near-record 6.2 percent,” Muoio said. “Low oil will cool the Texas economy and likely with it home sales within the state, exerting a drag on U.S. sales in 2015.” Tory Barringer began his journalism career in early 2011, working as a writer for the University of Texas at Arlington’s student newspaper before joining the DS News team in 2012. In addition to contributing to DSNews.com, he is also the online editor for DS News’ sister publication, MReport, which focuses on mortgage banking news.

A bench comprising of Justice S.K. Kaul, Justice Dinesh Maheshwari and Justice Hrishikesh Roy will deliver the judgment. Harish Salve, appearing on behalf of Mr. Ajit Mohan, concluded his counter arguments today. Main thrust of Salve’s arguments rested on the contention that it was not the “core function” of the Delhi Legislative to constitute a Committee examining issue of peace and harmony when there is no legislative power rested with the Assembly to deal with the issue. “There are two broad silos, one is existence of powers in compulsion of appearance and second is competence. I will submit that they are wrong on both.” Salve submitted. Coming to the stand taken by the Delhi Assembly and Committee in Peace and Harmony, Salve submitted that the two had spoken before the bench in “two voices”. Salve submitted “They are saying nothing has changed. This convenient divide is something I would respect from a constitutional court to look into. On matters like to taken divergent stands, please do not miss the significance.” It was also submitted that the substituted notice issued by the Committee does not make any difference in the position as contemplated by the earlier notices. Commenting on the duality of the arguments, Salve argued “See the headiness today in the committee. It reeks of constitutional arrogance. Look at the arrogance in the arguments of the Committee. If they are right, they are right. Then we must know these are the kinds of monsters we have created.” Further submissions advanced by Mr. Salve rested on the contentions of right to silence and Committee’s power to compel appearance of third parties by summoning them. According to Salve, where an area is within the legislative competence of Union Parliament, a State Assembly could not legislate on such area owing to the doctrine of “incidental encroachment.” “By the doctrine of incidental encroachment, if there is encroachment or overlap, the law of parliament prevails. This is called the dynamics of encroachment.” Salve submitted. Salve also vehemently refuted the submission made by Dr. Singhvi that entry 39 of List 2 and GNCTD Act of 1991 when read conjointly with other entries of List 2 will show that the Delhi Assembly has the powers to deal with subjects which are otherwise excluded under Art. 239AA. “What is the power of summoning? I want to get Entry 39 out of the way. It has no role to play in the context of Delhi Assembly. I don’t know how this was even read. This is not a legislative assembly. Much as they want to be a constitutional power, they are not.” Salve submitted. Concluding his submissions, Salve submitted that working for an American Corporation i.e. Facebook, the Committee cannot compel Mr. Mohan to appear in order to give evidence. “Evidence by its definition is factual. And when you call somebody to give evidence, you are calling to find out what happened. The views are not evidence. The law of evidence prohibits evidence of the opinion of a witness except an expert witness.” Salve argued. Furthermore, Salve closed his submissions in the following words: “If you want my views, I don’t want to talk about peace and harmony in India. Today it may be Facebook, tomorrow it will be somebody else but there has to be a law laid down by your lordships. Please do not permit this kind of expansion of powers through the backdoor and please protect citizens’ rights and particularly right to silence. In the noisy times of the present, right to silence is a virtue. And leave it to me to decide, whether or not I want to go and lay down that the summon is an invitation and no more.” Salve concluded.
