Yours isn’t the only sweat in your stash

first_imgA spokesperson for the University said, “Oxford Limited continually checks and is reassured by all of its licensees and suppliers that [ethical] policy is adhered to. “At a recent meeting with OUSU, Oxford Limited was happy to accept a suggestion that OUSU propose a revised form of wording for future agreements.”Campaigners also want Oxford to affiliate itself with the Worker Rights Consortium, an independent U.S. organisation which monitors companies in order to protect the rights of workers involved in garment production. Membership costs £12,000, which would constitute 1 per cent of its gross licensing revenues.Criticising Oxford’s non-membership of the Consortium, Robinson said, “If Oxford Ltd want, as they claim, to ensure good conditions for their workers, why are they keeping those conditions secret? Harvard have done it, Princeton have done it: 188 colleges and universities have signed up to the Workers Rights Consortium: why won’t Oxford?”OUSU’s campaign is focusing primarily on the Oxfordbranded clothing popular with tourists, but E&E reps are also concerned about how sports teams’ and college stash is made.Currently, the permission for use of branding on sportswear and college merchandise is given by the University proctors for official teams and clubs, or individual colleges in the case of college logos. With this permission, teams or colleges can go to any supplier, meaning there is no standard across the board for ethical production.Tom Meacher, captain of Oxford Polo Blues, told Cherwell he thought it was important that any company manufacturing university branded clothes should be as transparent as possible. “It’s not ethical to be selling clothing made in places like sweatshops and just not fair on the students who are buying this stash unknowingly.” The University has come under fire for refusing to divulge how ‘University of Oxford’ branded clothing is made, leading to concerns about the ethical credentials of souvenir tourist clothes and stash.OUSU’s Environment and Ethics Committee are campaigning to get Oxford Limited, a business subsidiary of the University responsible for the global licensing of the Oxford brand, to be open about the manufacture of University of Oxford clothing. The University claims that they are unable to publicise the manufacturing arrangements of their suppliers, as it is “commercially sensitive information”.Sean Robinson, co-ordinator of the E&E Anti-Sweatshop Campaign, said, “We should not put the Oxford University brand to a product which may have been made in appalling conditions for those workers involved. “The brand should stand for more than making money whilst ignoring ethical obligations. We want to ensure that no one who wears the Oxford Crest on their breast need also bear the weight of exploitation on their mind.”A similar campaign five years ago by the Ethics Committee resulted in Oxford Ltd introducing a Code of Labour Practice which specifies that licensees must ensure acceptable working conditions in their factories. However, without an independent body to check that this code is being implemented, ethics campaigners fear that it will have no effect. Robinson said that the code “only has meaning if there is incentive on the part of either Oxford Ltd or the licensees to see it enforced.“Consumers concerned over labour conditions voice their concerns with their wallets. If Oxford Ltd contractually obliged its licensees to ensure open, independent, verification of the working conditions in their factories and warehouses, then ethically minded consumers could rest assured that they would not be buying clothes stained with the blood, sweat and tears of exploited workers.” Oxford Ltd is said to have responded favourably to the campaign’s pressure for the inclusion of disclosure clauses in the contracts the company signs with its licensees, which would enable information about manufacturing arrangements to be released and accredited by an independent third party. last_img read more

Concerns Grow Over Facebook Data Leak

first_imgAPRIL 11TH, 2018  CHRIS MASTROBUONO EVANSVILLEMany across the Evansville are concerned over the massive Facebook data leak scandal.Improper use of 87 million people’s personal data by Cambridge Analytica was released.People say they are scared and have concerns, despite many of us posting so freely, some say Facebook should change some things and revert to settings it used in the past.Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg defended his business model to the U.S. Senate on Tuesday and to the house on Wednesday.That’s got many wondering if Zuckerberg will change the security of his brainchild which has become a social media juggernaut or the way the free platform operates.Younger generations are using social media more often than ever and they have concerns of their own. Like Signature School freshman Michael Keith,“I personally use Facebook, a lot of my friends use Facebook, I know that more kids use Facebook, I’m friends with more kids than adults, so it’s kind of scary that some kids could have that thing happen to them.”He went on to say, “Use the college emails again, now you can just use your parents email or something like that and I think they should make maybe passwords more secure, like maybe use specific characters in the password.”Elisa Pike of the U.S. Air Force said, “We put our information out there so freely, and nobody ever reads the user agreements so that’s probably in there so I don’t know.”Chris MastrobuonoNews Reporter/ Weather Forecaster FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Explore Widener in all its glory, from your desk or phone

first_img Related Recognizing prominent architect Julian Abele and his role in designing Harvard’s Widener Library At the center of Widener Library, a miniature museum The virtual tour was conceptualized and commissioned by Harvard Library’s digital scholarship program manager Matt Cook and head of research services Reed Lowrie. Cook said their vision was to “provide an experience of the space and its historical information for those unable to enter physically.”This option has become even more relevant during the coronavirus outbreak and response, as the building is closed to all but essential staff. Lowrie suggested that users who would typically tour the library this time of year, like prospective students, could tour it virtually instead.He and Cook had the tour approved and launched ahead of schedule once they saw the University’s response to coronavirus would restrict access to the library.The virtual tour is currently in beta and includes a feedback link. It is viewable on a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Widener, like all of Harvard’s libraries, is currently closed to the public as part of a University-wide effort to reduce the number of people on campus amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, there’s a new way to visit — and you don’t even need a Harvard ID.Harvard Library has partnered with a digital production company to create a 360-degree virtual tour of Widener, using a model constructed from thousands of photographs taken inside the building. Viewers can gaze up at the skylights of the Loker Reading Room, wander through the lower-level stacks, and examine the bookshelves holding Harry Widener’s personal collection. Along the tour, markers indicate an option to read historical details.,View the full interactive tour.center_img Harry’s books Shining a light on a genius The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news.last_img read more

Jakarta’s Paloma Bistro confirms Indonesian, Japanese COVID-19 patients visited in February

first_img“Unfortunately we don’t have any detailed information about the visitors as it was an open event that anyone could come to. Besides, they are not our regular hotel guests,” Darmawiharto said in a press conference on Tuesday.The Japanese woman, 41, was Malaysia’s 24th coronavirus patient who, according to the Malaysian Health Ministry, tested positive for COVID-19 on Feb. 27 after traveling from Japan in January and to Indonesia in early February.Case 1 and her 64-year-old mother, known as Case 2, had been in contact with the Japanese citizen before the two Indonesians tested positive for coronavirus, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo said on Monday.Read also: Jakarta bar Amigos visited by COVID-19 patient suspends operation amid virus fears The management of Des Indes Hotel in Central Jakarta has confirmed that an Indonesian patient who tested positive for coronavirus visited the hotel’s Paloma Bistro last month, where she reportedly encountered a Japanese woman who was later diagnosed with COVID-19 in Malaysia.Darmawiharto, the hotel’s manager, said on Tuesday that the 31-year-old woman, also known as Case 1, and the female Japanese citizen were not staying at the hotel, but they had come to Paloma Bistro on Feb. 15 at about 8 p.m. to attend a routinely held “Latin Dance” event.He added that approximately 30 people had joined the event that night. The two patients are currently in an isolation ward at the Sulianti Saroso Infectious Diseases Hospital (RSPI Sulianti Suroso) in Jakarta. On Feb. 14, Case 1 and the Japanese woman had also reportedly visited Amigos Bar and Cantina in Kemang, South Jakarta, where the two danced together, according to Health Minister Terawan Agus Putranto’s account.Darmawiharto went on to say that three Des Indes Hotel’s staff members who were on duty in Paloma Bistro at the time when the event took place had all passed the 14-day coronavirus incubation period and had also taken part in medical checks supervised by health authorities.”The three have shown no signs of illness. […] All of our staff are healthy” he said, adding that all 63 hotel staff members were in good condition and no one had taken sick leave since the event.”We would like to confirm that our hotel is a safe place. We do regular cleaning just like any other hotel, and we have also prepared preventive and precautionary measures against the virus by providing face masks and hand sanitizer in public spaces around the hotel,” Darmawiharto said.He added that the hotel was still operating as usual.

The UN security council puts pressure on Salva Kiir to sign…

first_imgSalva Kiir and Riek MacharThe UN Security Council is putting pressure on President Salva Kiir warning that it was ready to “act immediately” if he does not sign a deal to end the country’s 20-month war.President Salva Kiir is scheduled to sign the power-sharing agreement in Juba on Wednesday, alongside the leaders of Kenya, Uganda, Sudan and Ethiopia, but his spokesman said he had reservations on the latest peace deal.South Sudan’s rebel leader Riek Machar signed the agreement a week ago but Kiir had only initialled the text and said he would return to the table in early September.After meeting on the crisis in South Sudan, council members “expressed their readiness to act immediately if President Kiir does not sign the agreement on Wednesday as he has undertaken.Nigerian Ambassador Joy Ogwu, who chairs the council this month says the council will take immediate action if he does not sign the deal.The United States has presented a draft resolution that would impose an arms embargo and targeted sanctions on South Sudan if Kiir fails to sign the accord.Russia and China have expressed doubts about the draft text as have some African countries, in particular over sanctions that would target those deemed as blocking the peace accord.The United States has yet to submit a list of names of those who would be hit by an assets freeze and travel ban.Russia, a veto-wielding member of the council, said there would be no need to adopt the resolution if Kiir signs the deal.The latest in a string of peace deals, the agreement commits both sides to implementing a “permanent ceasefire” within 72 hours after signing.The deal gives rebels the post of first vice president, which means that Machar would likely return to the post he was sacked from in July 2013, six months before the war began.To address months of horrific violence, the agreement calls for a truth and reconciliation commission to be established and a war crimes court in collaboration with the African Union.The UN envoy to South Sudan, Ellen Margrethe Loej, told the council that a peace accord — if signed on Wednesday — was “only a first step” and that many hurdles lie ahead for the youngest nation in the world.last_img read more
