BRAMPTON, ONTARIO, CANADA , April 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Brampton Council passed unanimously the following motion in recognition of the 10 year anniversary of the Tamil genocide. We will never forget the horror of Mullivaikkal.

We remember. TGTE Prime Minister Rudrakumaran challenged councils and legislatures to remember this sad chapter in world history. I am proud the City of Brampton is the first Council to do so.

Thanks to Cllr Pat Fortini for seconding my motion and working closely with our dynamic Tamil community in Brampton.

Also thanks to Nimal Vinayagamoorthy David Rajaratnam Siva Sanmugaand Mohan Ramakrishnan for helping with the wording of the motion.

TAMIL GENOCIDE REMEMBRANCE MOTION

Moved by: Mayor Brown
Seconded by: Councillor Fortini
Passed. 10-0

WHEREAS, The Tamil people, living in their traditional homeland in North-East Sri Lanka, were subjected to severe persecution and injustice by the rulers of the Government of Sri Lanka after the independence Granted by British in 1948, including widespread massacres, usurpation of land and property, and acts of wanton destruction; and

WHEREAS, the horrible experience of the Tamils at the hands of their oppressors culminated in 2009 what is known as the ‘‘Genocide of the Twenty first Century;” and
WHEREAS, The Tamil Genocide began with the arrest, exile, and murder of thousands of Tamil intellectuals, and political, religious leaders; and

WHEREAS, the regime in control of Sri Lanka planned and executed the unspeakable atrocities committed against the Tamil people from 1958 through 2009, which included the torture, starvation, and murder of more than 100,000 Tamils; and

WHEREAS, newspapers in Canada commonly carried headlines such as “Toronto’s Hidden Genocide,” “Thousands protest Tamil Genocide,” and “How the world should react to Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields…”; and

WHEREAS, Unlike other peoples and governments that have admitted and denounced the abuses and crimes of predecessor regimes, and despite the overwhelming weight of evidence, adamantly denied the occurrence of the crimes against humanity and genocide, and those denials compound the grief of the remaining survivors of the atrocities, desecrate the memory of the victims, and cause continuing trauma and pain to the descendants of the victims; and

WHEREAS, the passage of time and the fact that few survivors remain who serve as reminders of indescribable brutality and torment, compel a sense of urgency in efforts to solidify recognition and reaffirmation of historical truth; and

WHEREAS, Canada has become home to one of the largest population of Tamils from Sri Lanka, and those citizens have enriched our country through leadership in the fields of academia, medicine, business, agriculture, government, and the arts and are proud and patriotic practitioners of Canadian citizenship;
Therefore Be It Resolved That the City of Brampton:

(a) Endorse the United Nations Human Rights Council’s (UNHRC) findings on Sri Lanka’s crimes against humanity and UNHRC HighCommissioner’s recent call for Sri Lanka to enact legislation to criminalize war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide; and

(b) Recognize that these crimes against the Tamil Nation in Sri Lanka constitute a genocide; and

(c) Recognize that May 18th as Tamil Genocide Remembrance Day as commemorated by Tamil Canadians every year for the last 9 years; and to educate others about the tragic loss of life, land, and human rights of the Tamil Nation and the crimes of genocide committed against them; and

(d) Send a copy of this Resolution to the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), and Brampton Members of Parliament (MPs) and Members of Provincial Parliament (MPPs).

Insurance law attorney Jared Stolz comments on ACE American Ins. Co. v. American Medical Plumbing, Inc., a recent decision of the Superior Court of New Jersey.

Stolz & Associates, LLC (N/A:N/A)

The court explained that the waiver applies if during construction the Owner insures properties, at or adjacent to the site by policies separate from those insuring the Project”

— Jared Stolz, insurance lawyer in New Jersey

FLEMINGTON, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, April 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Attorney Jared E. Stolz comments on a case dealing with waiver of subrogation provisions in a widely used form construction contract. The complete article will be available on Jared Stolz’ blog at https://jaredstolz.law.blog/

“ACE's insured, Equinox Development Corporation (Equinox Development), contracted in March 2012 with Grace Construction Management Company, LLC (Grace Construction), to build the ‘core and shell’ of a new health club in Summit. American was a plumbing subcontractor. Sometime in April 2013, after the work under the contract was completed, a water main failed and flooded the health club.”

At the time of the water main failure, Equinox and its subsidiaries were covered by ACE’s insurance policy. Thus, ACE paid out almost $1.2 million for the damages covered by the policy.

“ACE eventually filed suit against American, claiming it was at fault for the water-main break and seeking recovery of its payments to Equinox. American promptly answered, invoking [the form construction contract] A201's subrogation-waiver provisions. Soon thereafter, American filed its motion for summary judgment, which the trial court granted, relying mainly on an unpublished federal district court opinion.”

The court first noted that “[i]n broad terms, A201 requires the owner and contractor to procure, respectively, property and liability insurance; and requires the owner and contractor and its subcontractors (and sub-subcontractors, agents and employees) to waive all rights against each other for damages covered by the required property insurance policy.”

On appeal, ACE laid out several arguments for why its claim was not barred by the subrogation waiver. First, “ACE contends that the subrogation waiver under section 11.3.7 has a spatial limit, applying only to claims for damage to the Work itself but not adjacent property, as well as a temporal limit, applying only to claims arising before construction is complete. Since the bulk of the water damage affected not the health club's ‘core and shell’ but its internal construction and furnishings, and since the claim here arose after the Work was completed, ACE concludes that section 11.3.7 does not restrict it from suing American.” Second, even with respect to subrogation waiver that applies to post-completion insurance, “ACE contends that its insurance policy was not ‘other than’ a policy that insured the Project during construction.”

The court rejected ACE’s argument, explaining that “the waiver applies ‘[i]f during the Project construction period the Owner insures properties, real or personal or both, at or adjacent to the site by property insurance under policies separate from those insuring the Project.’ The waiver also applies ‘if after final payment, property insurance is to be provided on the completed Project through a policy or policies other than those insuring the Project during the construction period.’” Thus, the court concluded, that ACE’s policy was subject to the subrogation waiver in the form contract. The case is ACE American Insurance Co. v. American Medical Plumbing, Inc., Docket No. A-5395-16T4.

Millions Diagnosed as Mentally Ill May Actually be Suffering from Treatable Immune Disorder

The headquarters for CCHR Florida are located in downtown Clearwater.

Restoring Human Rights Dignity in the Field of Mental Health

Restoring Human Rights Dignity in the Field of Mental Health

New research has led to a belief that many people diagnosed as “bipolar” or “schizophrenic” may actually be suffering from a treatable immune system condition.

The failure to rule out non-psychiatric causes for the symptoms that a patient presents and instead labeling them as mentally ill is irresponsible at best.”

— Diane Stein, president of the Florida chapter of CCHR

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The discovery in 2007 of “anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis” which causes symptoms similar to schizophrenia or bipolar disorder inspired a study by researchers at Houston Methodist. Joseph Masdeu, MD, Ph.D was the principal investigator. A neurologist with the Houston Methodist Neurological Institute, Dr. Masdeu stated, “We suspect that a significant number of people believed to have schizophrenia or bipolar disorder actually have an immune system disorder that affects the brain's receptors. If true, those people have diseases that are completely reversible — they just need a proper diagnosis and treatment to help them return to normal lives."

Dr. Masdeu continues, "We know that nearly 1 percent of the U.S. population — or more than 3.5 million people — have schizophrenia. Another 2.6 percent of American adults have bipolar disorder. What we don't know is how many of these patients actually have one of these treatable immune system disorders." [1]

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a mental health watchdog that works to restore basic inalienable human rights to the field of mental health, is very concerned not only about the misdiagnosis of treatable physical ailments as mental illness but also about the use of psychiatric drugs which come with dangerous and even deadly side effects.

For instance, one of the most commonly prescribed drugs to treat schizophrenia is Abilify. Some of the side effects of this drug are:

• thoughts about suicide or dying
• attempts to commit suicide
• new or worse depression
• new or worse anxiety
• feeling very agitated or restless
• panic attacks
• trouble sleeping (insomnia)
• new or worse irritability
• acting aggressive, being angry, or violent
• acting on dangerous impulses
• an extreme increase in activity and talking (mania)
• other unusual changes in behavior or mood [2]

A common psychiatric drug used to treat bipolar is Zyprexa. The side effects may include:

• Seizures
• changes in body temperature
• impaired sexual function
• tardive dyskinesia (this include slow or jerky movements that one cannot control, often starting in the mouth with tongue rolling or chewing movements.)

Drugs of this class have also been associated with higher risk of death, strokes, and transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) in elderly people with behavior problems due to dementia. [3]

“The failure to rule out non-psychiatric causes for the symptoms that a patient presents and instead labeling them as mentally ill is irresponsible at best,” says Diane Stein president of the Florida chapter of CCHR. “Adequate medical care is a basic human right that is being denied to millions of people.”

Additionally, the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders) has been criticized for labeling everyday upsets as “mental disorders” and this may be contributing to the misdiagnosis of people with treatable medical illnesses according to some experts.

Allen France MD voices his opinion in an online publication of Psychology Today stating, “…DSM 5 will harm people who are medically ill by mislabeling their medical problems as mental disorder.”

He continues, “Adding to the woes of the medically ill could be one of the biggest problems caused by DSM 5. It will do this in two ways: 1) by encouraging a quick jump to the erroneous conclusion that someone's physical symptoms are 'all in the head'; and 2) by mislabeling as mental disorders what are really just the normal emotional reactions that people understandably have in response to a medical illness.”

A new listing in the DSM 5 is labeled “Somatic Symptom Disorder” and Suzy Chapman, a UK health advocate, voices some serious concerns about this so-called “disorder.”

What would a person have to exhibit in order to necessitate treatment for “Somatic Symptom Disorder?”

“'A person will meet the criteria for SSD by reporting just one bodily symptom that is distressing and/or disruptive to daily life and having just one of the following three reactions to it that persist for at least six months: 1) 'disproportionate' thoughts about the seriousness of their symptom(s); or 2) a high level of anxiety about their health; or, 3) devoting excessive time and energy to symptoms or health concerns.'”
Ms. Chapman states, “Unless DSM-5 changes these incredibly over inclusive criteria, it will greatly increase the rates of diagnosis of mental disorders in the medically ill – whether they have established diseases (like diabetes, coronary disease or cancer) or have unexplained medical conditions that so far have presented with somatic symptoms of unclear etiology.” [4]

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

Secure Channels Launches Desktop Encryption Utility ZIPcrypt™ featuring XOTIC™

SCIFCOM Dial Screenshot

Secure Channels Launches Desktop Encryption Utility ZIPcrypt™ featuring XOTIC™ extreme encryption technology and all-new “dialable” cipher-strength

IRVINE, CA, UNITED STATES, April 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Secure Channels Inc., a provider of innovative security solutions, announced today the launch of ZIPcrypt™, an easy-to-use desktop utility that encrypts and decrypts files or folders with a simple right-click.

The ZIPcrypt™ application (utility) is designed for simplicity and to be immediately familiar to those who already use WinZip, WinRAR, or other shell-integrated compression utilities. ZIPcrypt™ presents the option to perform encryption using the widely popular AES-256 standard, as well as the more powerful, ground-breaking new encryption technology known as XOTIC™.

The XOTIC™ encryption format allows for unprecedented direct control over encryption strength using a simple “dial” feature that resembles a stereo volume control knob. XOTIC™ encryption strength ranges from 512 bits of security (known as “post-quantum” strength), all the way up to an eye-popping 131,072 bit, which can only be described as “archive strength”.

ZIPcrypt™ follows the popular “Freemium” model, making it always free to use for basic file and folder ZIP compression with encryption. Users can also opt-in to engage a free-trial of SCIFCOM™[1]. Enabling SCIFCOM™ fully unlocks the potential of ZIPcrypt™, allowing for maximum encryption dial-settings and direct inline integration of the SCIFCOM™ online file-sharing service. The file-sharing feature includes the ability to directly send jumbo sized (extra-large) files securely over the internet via SCIFCOM.

SCIFCOM™ file-sharing utilizes the powerful SCIFCOM™ (as-a-service) website and robust cloud storage options to transmit files anywhere on earth. Recipients of encrypted files receive a link via email whereby encrypted data can be downloaded from the cloud, and encryption keys are handled separately and securely by SCIFCOM.

The minimal and elegant design of ZIPcrypt™ along with robust features for sharing files remotely presents an attractive and powerful alternative to DropBox.com. ZIPcrypt™ combines the ability to securely encrypt, store, and send data with ease.

(For a full list of SCIFCOM features, please visit http://beta.scifcom.com)

"Encryption is difficult and expensive, so it's not utilized by very many organizations," said Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer of Secure Channels Inc. "With ZIPcrypt™ we built a minimalistic yet powerful utility that's exceedingly simple to use and provides users with important capabilities for their own security. These include local file and folder encryption (with ZIP compression) and send-a-file using the online SCIFCOM encryption as-a-service platform. We're excited to offer our first encryption-as-a-service platform and expect rapid adoption due to our combined ease of use and the benefits of encrypted protection. "

ZIPcrypt™ solves one of the most troublesome problems in the world today; the ability to send files safely while still remaining extremely simple to use. "We wanted to create something weightless that won't impact the user experience," said Michael Feinberg, Chief Information Officer of Secure Channels Inc.

Student Employee at Stevenson University Files Class Action for Unpaid Minimum Wage and Overtime Pay

A former student employee from Stevenson University, Inc. has filed a lawsuit on behalf of herself and others denied overtime and minimum wage

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, April 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On April 19, 2019, a former student employee (Plaintiff) of Stevenson University, Inc. ("Stevenson University") filed a class and collective action lawsuit (Case No. 1:19-cv-01159) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland against the college to recover unpaid minimum and overtime wages. Stevenson University is a private higher-learning institution in Baltimore County, Maryland. While pursuing her undergraduate and graduate degrees, Plaintiff was hired to work as both a receptionist for the university and a Graduate Assistant for the university's lacrosse team.

Plaintiff brought her case on behalf of herself and other students who work or worked for Stevenson University. Plaintiff alleges that the college violated the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") and equivalent state wage laws by failing to pay her the correct minimum and overtime wages for all hours worked. Plaintiff alleges that she consistently worked more hours than she was scheduled to work. However, regardless of how many hours that she and other student employees worked, it is alleged they were only permitted to record between ten (10) and twenty (20) hours on their time-sheets each week. It is alleged that Stevenson University prohibited its student employees from reporting working beyond the capped number of weekly hours designated for a given position, resulting in a denial of minimum wage and overtime payments.

According to the Complaint, this was a uniform policy enforced among all student employee positions within the athletic department (including the positions of Team Manager, Graduate Assistant and Assistant Coach) and administrative positions within the university (including, but not limited to, the receptionist position).

Additional information regarding how student employees who work or worked for Stevenson University can learn more about this case by visiting our website or by calling the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl at 410-244-7005. The case is entitled Brooks v. Stevenson University, Inc.

NEWS CONFERENCE TO ANNOUNCE LAWSUIT IN THE CASE OF SELWYN HALL

Jacksonville 04.24.19

Police Brutality and Brutality: Murdered in Cold Blood

Civil lawsuit claims in excess $10,000,000 tortious conduct by Officer Ryan McGee

JACKSONVILLE, FL, USA, April 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at 11AM, a news conference will be held at 332 East 19th Street in Jacksonville, FL (crime scene) to announce a lawsuit in the case of Selwyn Hall, an unarmed Black male killed by Jacksonville Sheriff Ryan McGee on April 25, 2017.

Police were called to the residence where Selwyn Hall was killed due to a response to a domestic dispute between Hall and his wife. The police response to the call was excessive, without qualification and deadly; resulting in Selwyn Hall being shot several times and killed by Ryan Mcgee, without justification or any sound reason, whatsoever.

Attorney for the Plaintiff in the lawsuit representing Selwyn Hall’s widow, Malik Z. Shabazz, Esq., and local counsel, will detail the allegations in the Civil lawsuit which claims in excess $10,000,000 tortious conduct by Officer Ryan McGee and Constitutional violation by the City of Jacksonville, Officer Ryan McGee and other JSO officers in the excessive force, beating and wrongful death of Selwyn Hall.

For years the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has used excessive force, unnecessary beatings and unjustified killings as a custom and practice. It is time now that justice prevails in the City of Jacksonville. “On April 25, 2017, the Jacksonville Sheriff Office had every chance to peacefully resolve issues relating too their call to the home of Selwyn Hall and his wife. Instead, once again, the JSO used excessive and deadly force to gun-down an unarmed citizen. When the facts and circumstances clearly state there was no need for deadly force whatsoever.” – Malik Z. Shabazz, Esq.

A town hall meeting on 'Police Misconduct and Brutality: Murdered in Cold Blood' is scheduled for Thursday, April 25 – 6pm at the B & SUN Art Museum – 2422 North Myrtle Avenue – Jacksonville, Florida
