The e-mail also notes that a complaint was made by a member of the JCR to the president describing a specific incident taking place at Trinity and requesting that the encounter be on the record with the JCR committee. Of the 12 students, who would comprise approximately 4.1% of the Trinity undergraduate population, 9 reported having “faced any specific issues or incidents” at Trinity with regards race or ethnicity and 5 said that worries or issues about race have a detrimental effect on their mental health, the e-mail claims. The e-mail, which the Trinity JCR President accidentally sent to a mailing list of all JCR members rather than to the college President, disclosed the results of a poll issued to all undergraduates. Speaking to Cherwell on the subject of inclusivity, the Trinity College Communications Department said: “As a small collegiate community, it is our top priority at Trinity to foster an environment in which everyone feels comfortable, welcome and respected. Cherwellhas been alerted to a mishandling of information at Trinity College after a private e-mail discussing findings on the treatment of BAME students on campus was mistakenly made public. “It is top priority of Trinity College JCR that every student feels welcome and cared for at Trinity. 12 of the students surveyed identified themselves in the survey as either “Black/African/Caribbean/Black-British” or “Mixed/Multi-Ethnic”. When asked to comment, the president referred to the incident as an example of “human error” writing: “What has happened was a human error in a private email context where an email was accidentally Trinity email leak exposes sensitive information to JCR sent to the wrong mailing list; this is very regrettable but not a voluntary breach of confidentiality. “To this end, we are surveying our members to understand how to better support them and feeding this information back to college in order to work together on improving the culture and support provision at Trinity.” “This incident has sensitised the JCR committee, including myself, to be more careful with our email conversations. I have also urged the committee to turn on the “undo sending” option in outlook and have done so myself. The breach was quickly noticed and unintended recipients of the e-mail were sent a follow-up apologising for the mistake and asking them to delete the message. “We want students to feel empowered to come forward if they encounter instances of behaviour that work counter to these values so that we can continuously work to ensure that every single member of our community feels warmly included and that Trinity lives up to its values.” The complaint has subsequently been sent to Trinity’s approximately 290 JCR members as a result of the mistake. “Gladly, no students were mentioned by name in this email. Additionally, the numbers from the survey cited in the email in question were inaccurate.
Last weekend, jam worlds collided when Mike Gordon performed with progressive bluegrass heroes (and longtime Phish fans) Greensky Bluegrass. The collaboration went down at the band’s inaugural Camp Greensky Music Festival, which took over the Hoxeyville festival grounds in Wellston, MI.Gordon came on stage toward the end of Greensky Bluegrass’ headlining set on Saturday, June 2nd. The Phish bassist took up an acoustic guitar for a cover of Alison Krauss‘ “Endless Highway” before switching to his usual weapon of choice—the electric bass—for a set-closing take on the Greensky original “Don’t Lie”.Gordon was on hand at Camp Greensky after wrapping up a main stage performance with his own Mike Gordon Band. According to Greensky Bluegrass dobro player Anders Beck, there was a 65% chance that Gordon would sit in at Camp Greensky, so the band was no doubt excited when he did. Fortunately, we can all relive the magic of Greensky & Gordon with this video courtesy of YouTube user Peter Huebner.Greensky Bluegrass feat. Mike Gordon – “Endless Highway” & “Don’t Lie”[Video: Peter Huebner]Can’t get enough of Greensky Bluegrass’ Camp Greensky collaborations?

The highly-coveted Argentina international joined United in a record £59.7million deal from Real Madrid. The 26-year-old has been handed the club’s famous number seven shirt, and his arrival has the potential to excite fans after a poor start to the season. “He can accelerate our play and our style of play but he fits in our philosophy. “But what he can do more than fit in our philosophy, is I can change the system for him and maybe I shall do that in the future, like I have already done against Swansea City. “He played at Real Madrid not only as a wide wing player but also in midfield so that is also a reason why we are convinced he shall succeed.” Di Maria himself is happy to fit in wherever Van Gaal wishes to deploy him. Di Maria, man of the match in last season’s Champions League final, said: “It depends on the manager and where he wants to play me. “I come here to work for the team and I am prepared to play in any position he wants to. I just want to help the club become successful again.” Di Maria is well aware of the significance of United’s number seven, a shirt worn with distinction in the past by the likes of George Best, Steve Coppell, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo. Di Maria and Ronaldo were key members of Real’s Champions League-winning side last season and the Argentine asked the Portuguese star about United. He said: “I was aware of the importance of the number seven shirt. “Cristiano Ronaldo had spoken to me at Real Madrid and told me how important it was. “I wanted to wear this shirt and do as much for the club as Ronaldo and the others could do. “The club also wanted me to wear it so I want to live up to it.” Di Maria is likely to go straight into the squad for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Burnley but Van Gaal has not indicated whether he might start. Van Gaal, however, has warned he cannot be expected to transform fortunes immediately. Van Gaal, speaking at a press conference to unveil Di Maria, said: “I am very pleased that we can have such a class player in our squad but you have many class players. “For me it is also important that he is a team player and that is what I am liking in Di Maria – not only class, and that he can accelerate the game for us, but that he can also play in the interests of the team. “That is why we have chosen this player and I hope he shall give us good results, but we cannot expect after two days’ training sessions that he is the miracle what I already read (about). “No, you have to work for the miracle and he knows that.” United are yet to win a match this season and on Tuesday were knocked out of the Capital One Cup in humiliating fashion – a 4-0 defeat by League One MK Dons. Questions have been asked of Van Gaal’s tactics, notably his 3-5-2 formation, and consequently where Di Maria would fit into that. Van Gaal said: “I only buy players that can improve our philosophy so I have spoken already about his way of playing in the interests of the team. Press Association Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has warned not to expect instant miracles from Angel di Maria.

The Palm Beach County School District voted Wednesday afternoon to fire former Spanish River Community High School Principal William Latson.Board members voted 5-2 to terminate Latson’s contract over comments he made to a parent in an email last July about the Holocaust.In the message, the former administrator wrote, “I can’t say the holocaust is a factual, historical event because I am not in a position to do so as a school district employee.”He had been reassigned to the district office during the investigation.The investigative report stated the district had “just cause” to fire Latson since he violated several district policies.Latson’s termination will take effect on November 21. He has until that date to file an appeal.The School Board also decided at its Wednesday meeting to sue e-cigarette maker Juul, in an effort to combat the youth vaping epidemic.According to officials with the District, schools are struggling to address the issue, and “have been forced to divert resources to monitoring and disciplining the rapidly growing number of students using vaping products on school grounds.”If a settlement is reached, 75 percent of the money would go to the District, while the other 25 percent would go to the law firms who are representing the District.The statement from the District adds, “The top priority of the School District of Palm Beach County is the safety and well-being of our students and staff. Palm Beach County does not intend to stand by and allow this crisis to escalate further.”
A Doral Academy Preparatory School teacher has been arrested for having a alleged sexual relationship with her 15-year-old student that was recorded on video.Police took Desiree Cartin Rodriguez,27, into custody on Friday after they discovered a video that confirmed the relationship she had with the teen.Doral Police spokesperson Rey Valdes says “It wasn’t like it was a hidden camera.
