Nicky Southall insists the Dover management team feel everyone’s pain as they continue to seek an elusive first win of the season.

The Whites travel to Yeovil this Saturday in their final National League game, with the Glovers winning 2-1 at Bromley on Tuesday night.

Yeovil is 13th in the National League, unbeaten in six games in all competitions, while the Basement Boys Dover lost 3-2 to their other part-time club Wealdstone in midweek and are now 22 points behind. Security.

Another loss for the Whites on Saturday would mean they have lost seven games on the spin and 10 straight league games since their goalless draw against Solihull Moors on September 21.

Ahead of the meeting at Huish Park, deputy manager Southall said: “They have an experienced team.

“They got a result against Bromley on Tuesday and then we have the big budget hitters at Wrexham in the next home game (December 4th). It doesn’t get any easier!

“It’s tough. We know it’s tough.

“We feel everyone’s pain – you guys (the media), the players, the fans, down to the kitmen and the rest of the people behind the scenes.

“We are desperate to get this result.”

The Whites defeated Yeovil in November 2019 in a televised game, as defenseman Scott Doe scored the only goal.

Southall is hoping his current crop can build on this victory, adding: “They are a good team.

“They were a championship team. We went there a few years ago live on tv and beat them.

“We just have to be positive and, fingers crossed, we can get that first win.”

However, a lot has changed in the two years since this televised reunion.

They met twice last season at Yeovil as Dover suffered FA Cup heartbreak, losing on penalties after a 3-3 draw in the FA Cup and the Glovers winning 3-1 in their meeting in the league.

Southall says the Whites are hoping to bring in a leader in time for the game while defender Danny Collinge, who missed the game against Wealdstone due to illness, may also return.

Forward Ricky Miller (calf), player coach Reda Johnson (thigh) and Seth Twumasi (knee) have also been on the treatment table recently, but playmaker Koby Arthur faced off against Wealdstone as he stood up. was recovering from a calf problem.

Southall admitted that the Ghanaian’s return to fitness had been a big boost, saying: “We know what Koby has. It has quality.

“He has a bit of class at home. He seems to be picking the right pass at the right time and he has a purpose in him.

“He had a little calf problem that he contracted in training. Whether it’s because we’re training on the 3G pitch, which isn’t ideal, (I’m not sure) but he felt it.

“We didn’t risk him on Saturday but we brought him into the squad on Tuesday, he took a fitness test that afternoon.

“We were happy to have him on the pitch because we need him on the pitch.”

Dover will also have to decide whether to stay with Josh Bexon, who returned to the squad for the Wealdstone game, or to recall Watford goalkeeper on loan, Adam Parkes.

REAL ESTATE MANAGEMENT Eurolets (UK) Limited has been ordered to pay more than £ 80,000 for security breaches which “potentially put large numbers of people at risk of death or serious injury from fire”. London Fire Brigade (LFB) inspectors discovered “serious fire safety flaws” during two visits to a five-story building on Danbury Street in Islington operated by the company.

An enforcement notice requiring Eurolets (UK) Limited to address fire safety concerns was issued following a visit in 2016. Subsequent compliance was sufficient. However, a subsequent visit then found defects similar to those found in the previous inspection.

The Danbury Street building consists of over 40 self-catering apartments rented to tenants. Inspections revealed deficiencies, including combustible materials near the entrance to the premises, a lack of fire extinguishers and signage, stuck doors, holes in the walls, and a non-functioning fire alarm system.

Ten separate offenses

Eurolets (UK) Limited was charged with ten separate offenses under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, as the company pleaded guilty to all counts. The case was heard by Westminster Magistrates’ Court earlier this month. Here is the full list of charges and penalties:

* non-observance of general precautions in case of fire
* failure to conduct an appropriate and sufficient fire risk assessment
* failure to ensure appropriate arrangements in case of fire
* failure to ensure that the exit routes were clear and unlocked
* failure to ensure appropriate fire safety measures are in place and to convey appropriate details to employees and residents
* lack of maintenance and warranty of fire safety equipment
* failure to provide employees with sufficient information on fire safety
* failure to provide adequate safety training
* failure to ensure adequate structural compartmentalization
* surcharge for combustible items during second inspection

The president of the tribunal ruled that the company “was far from appropriate standards” and that there was “a serious and / or systemic failure within the organization” to face the risks involved.

Eurolets (UK) Limited was ordered to pay a fine of £ 60,000 on the first count (with no separate penalties for the other counts), a victim fine surcharge of £ 170 and costs of £ 20,000. The total fine of £ 80,170 is to be paid over ten months at the rate of £ 8,000 per month.

Residents endangered

Paul Jennings, LFB’s deputy fire safety commissioner, said :, coupled with the only means of escape being swarmed by smoke. In sentencing, the judge made it clear that she had increased the fine because of the large number of residents who had been put at risk by the company’s lack of action to address the concerns expressed.

Jennings added, “We are pleased with the outcome of this case, thanks to the hard work carried out every day by our fire safety inspectors. It should also serve as a warning to property managers that we will not hesitate to act in situations where people do not take their responsibilities seriously. “

In conclusion, Jennings noted: “There is no excuse for leaving people’s safety to chance, especially since the information is so readily available to those responsible for building safety that they can fully understand. what their obligations are and ensure that they comply with the law. . “

It’s hard to overstate the environmental importance of trees, which, among other functions, remove climate change-inducing carbon from the atmosphere, purify the air of toxins, and help control runoff.

While it may also be difficult to quantify some of these effects, a new study by researchers at the University of Maryland is helping to clarify the role of urban trees in mitigating stormwater flows, and finds that even isolated trees lining a street or planted in a park can have a significant effect.

A study published yesterday in the newspaper Scientific reports by Assistant Professor Mitch Pavao-Zuckerman and PhD student Sara Ponte, both from the Department of Environmental Science and Technology, discovered that individually planted trees capture, store, and release stormwater into the atmosphere – a process called “transpiration” – at a rate of three times that of trees in a forest. The study was conducted in partnership with the US Forest Service and the nonprofit Center for Watershed Protection, with funding from the Chesapeake Bay Trust.

The publication explores how trees work in different urban contexts, from streets to small patches of forest – knowledge that can help support the management of green infrastructure, including the growing practice of tracking the environmental service provided by trees to calculate the storm water or other charges assessed by municipalities.

“Our data can help ensure that tree credit policies better reflect the real benefits of trees in cityscapes, as they interact with water and their environment differently in cities than outside cities.” , did he declare. “Our next step is to take this dataset of how each tree is functioning and scale it to see how an entire stand or patch of trees dampens stormwater flows.”

Pavao Zuckerman’s team measured transpiration in three separate urban settings: isolated trees on grass and a cluster of trees on grass in Montgomery County, and a closed canopy forest in Baltimore. They built and used sap flow sensors to get a clearer picture of how trees access groundwater, installing them in 18 mature red maples to continuously monitor transpiration rates during the growing season. They also measured soil water content, air temperature, relative humidity and precipitation at each site.

“Quantifying the impacts of urban trees affects different parts of the water balance, such as the evapotranspiration component discussed in the article by Mitch and Sarah, allows us to better understand the benefits of urban trees and to know where and how to plant and plant them. preserve to get the greatest benefit. said Deb Caraco, senior watershed engineer at the Center for Watershed Protection.

Pavao-Zuckerman said the results can serve as guidelines for managers of urban stormwater runoff, and that the current method of relying on data collected from non-urban locations to determine the effect of urban trees should be abandoned.

For current and former students of Aluva UC College, their fight is not only against the rigid rules of the hostel, but against management’s apathy towards them, especially in cases of sexual harassment.

In recent years, female students residing in five hostels at Union Christian College in Aluva, Kerala have struggled to reform the archaic rules of university hostels. The rules are misogynistic and illegal, say student organizations and residents of the hostels. In fact, in recent days, they have stepped up their demand, handing out leaflets and putting up posters around campus claiming the rules are anti-women.

From unrealistic curfews to having to submit numerous letters of consent, the students are questioning hostel rules, or “hostel discipline,” as the circular puts it. Although the rules apply to both male and female students, many say they are often only enforced for students, while they remain “on paper” for male residents.

In April 2019, the government of Kerala extended until 9:30 p.m. the curfew for women’s shelters attached to all public colleges. Being a government-funded college, the students demanded that UC College also adhere to the government-mandated curfew. Currently 6:00 p.m. is curfew for the UC College Women’s Hostel, while it is 6:30 p.m. for the Men’s Hostel. They can obtain an extension up to 21 hours after having requested the authorization of the director in the prescribed form, indicating the reason and the destination. However, many female students say the rules are waived for male residents and that they are still allowed to enter the hostel even after curfew time.

The tedious rules

Mathrukam UCC, a female wing of the Federation of Students of India, distributed posters and leaflets against the regulation in hostels. Even for academic purposes, students are only allowed to go out late if they are accompanied by a teacher, guardian or parent, the students say.

For academic programs or weekend classes, students must obtain permission from the principal and submit a parental consent letter. The student must also submit a letter from the course director, indicating the nature and timing of the course, according to the regulations. They are also not allowed to leave the hostel with any visitor, other than parents or guardians.

Even to leave hostels on vacation, students claim they have to go through the headache of getting clearances. “We are not allowed to leave the hostel on weekends or on public holidays. We are allowed to go out on Saturday afternoon, for a few hours. The rest of the time we have to spend in the hostel. Come home for vacation, they text our parents as soon as we leave campus. Our parents will have to do the same, text shortly after we leave home for the hostel. We are not allowed to go. elsewhere after class, so we have to reach the hostel shortly after leaving the college building, ”says a college resident student.

“We have submitted petitions to the principal asking for a reform of the rules. But no action has yet been taken,” said Tessa, another student at the college. She further adds: “Imagine not being allowed to leave the hostel on public holidays.”

Complaints of sexual harassment are ignored

For current and former college students, their fight is not just against the rigid rules of the hostel, but against management’s apathy towards them, especially in cases of sexual harassment, where their allegations are. swept aside as mere “misunderstandings”. “And they have used every platform and every opportunity possible to highlight and question the callous attitude of UC College management towards female students.

On November 11 this year, Mileena Shaji, a bachelor’s degree student in history who obtained first rank from Mahatma Gandhi University, even rejected the Sri K Narayana Menon Memorial Award given by the university for her apathy towards women. .

Just seven months before Mileena rejected the award, a former college student claimed she was sexually harassed by an English department teacher. About 200 alumni of the college had sent a letter to the principal in support of the survivor and also specifying many such experiences at the hands of the teacher, who incidentally is the winner of the Kerala State Film Award for his book.

Although the administration removed the teacher from the post of Head of Department (HoD), he continued to teach at the college, facing no action. Moreover, an internal investigation into the allegations gave him a good word, saying that the complaints about the teacher’s behavior stemmed from a “misunderstanding” and that he would try to remedy them.

“We remember that a sexual predator who traumatized many female students still holds a respectable teaching position at the college. We remember how the internal committee (formerly known as the internal complaints committee) dismissed complaints about (a teacher’s daughter) on campus. We remember the hostel rules which are utterly oppressive and shockingly sexist. We also remember how the CI totally ignored our concerns and always sided with the oppressor, ”Mileena wrote in a letter to the principal, rejecting her award.

In her letter, Mileena refers to an incident in which a college assistant professor raised a serious allegation against college officials, stating that the latter took no action against a final year student who was wrong. driving with her 13 year old daughter. on the college campus.

“Should we be raising a potential rapist,The assistant professor asked in a Facebook post. The incident happened on March 17, 2021. “No one can be justified in making an obscene comment when looking at the body of a 13-year-old girl. It has been 10 days since I filed the complaint (with authorities). No action was taken. In addition, the silence of the college teachers, except a few, was as expected. Many do not even find this to be a problem, “he wrote. the teacher.

However, a few months later, the IC released its findings on the harassment of a 13-year-old girl on campus. Papicha, an Instagram page opened by former UC College students to protest the college, alleged that the IC report said the 13-year-old “misunderstood” the friendly speech from the senior student in her final year and “it was her imagination.”

“It is quite alarming that ‘misunderstandings’ only happen to women who complain,” Papicha responded to the ICC report.

No students on IC

According to the guidelines of the University Grants Commission (UGC), all universities must have an IC to deal with sexual harassment, and these committees should have staff and students as members.

“I studied in college from 2014 to 2017, and we had never heard of an IC in college, although they claimed it has been around since 2013. They never advertise, never organize workshops nor give awareness about IC. Also, according to rules, IC should have a student representative, but there are no students on it even today. As a result, students don’t know where to complain or who to contact, ”explains Malavika, a former college student.

Williamsport, Pa .– Construction students at Penn College competed in a regional competition in Albany last week, placing first and second in separate categories. Student performance and reflections indicate a strong construction management program in college.

The students won first and second place in the 32nd Annual Region 1 Associated Schools Building Competition, held November 11-13 in Albany, New York.

The college pre-construction team, responsible for the construction and renovation of a public school building in New England, placed first. His Heavy Highway / Civil team, responsible for a sewer project in New Jersey, placed second in the competition.

“I am amazed each year at what student teams are able to accomplish in such a short period of time,” said Wayne R. Sheppard, assistant professor and department head of construction management. “Penn College teams are made up of volunteers who participate in after-school competitions in addition to already busy schedules that include classes, jobs and other clubs and activities. How they come together and grow as a group and then overcome these challenges is fun to watch. “

Members of the pre-construction team, led by Tom A. Grates VI, of Taranto, were Noah M. Lacarte, of Charleroi; Danielle E. Malesky, of Biglerville; Rudy C. Shadle, of Mechanicsburg; Nathan I. Tabon, Allison Park; and Jacob C. Wells of Mountain Top.

The Heavy Highway / Civil team, led by Nathan G. Kress, of Sciota, consisted of Mason E. Blethen, of Colora, Maryland; Anthony M. Glotfelty, of Broomall; Conor B. Laraia, of Chambersburg; Mike R. Miller, of Montgomery; and Cody J. Smith, of Honesdale.

A number of students are not new to the ASC competition. Grates and Kress also competed in 2019 and 2020; and Laraia, Malesky and Tabon entered the 2020 competition.

As part of the pre-construction competition, Consigli Commercial Properties requested proposals for Lincoln Public Middle School in Lincoln, Massachusetts.

“The task was made complicated by the fact that this was a selective demolition and remodeling, as well as new construction on an active school,” said Grates. “On the day of the event, we were responsible for establishing a detailed estimate, a schedule, a logistics and usage plan, a constructability review, a risk assessment review and several other additional documents in a little less. from 3 p.m.

The team did not receive any information on the project leading up to the competition, Grates said, but instead received the plans at Friday’s 8 a.m. kickoff meeting in Albany. Members had until 10:30 pm to get it all done and handed in… and then had to prepare (and train for) their presentation at 11:30 am on Saturday morning.

“It was a pleasure to go to Albany and represent Penn College and the Construction Management Program in this competition,” said Grates. “We competed against the best construction management schools in the area; that the two teams place is a testament to everything we learn here at Penn College.

Before the competitions, said Grates, both teams knew they needed to use all of their knowledge – from classrooms to clinics – to help them succeed.

“Being able not only to win but also to participate in these competitions will be one of the fondest memories of my college career,” he said. “I hope the underclassmen can continue to compete, and I’m delighted to see what the underclassmen will accomplish in next year’s competition with the experience they have gained.”

In the Heavy Highway / Civil competition, hosted by Weeks Marine, Kress and his teammates competed at a combined sewer outfall screening facility to be built along the Hudson River in Weehawken, New Jersey.

“The purpose of this structure is to filter the waste that was originally discharged directly into the Hudson, with the goal of making the river a much cleaner environment,” Kress said. “Our team had to submit a complete offer proposal containing a project schedule, a detailed cost estimate, as well as means and methods. “

The final proposal was expected Friday at 11 p.m., with a professional presentation to the judges the next morning.

Like Grates, he couldn’t give his teammates enough credit: “Before the competition my team had spent countless hours researching and working on this project. This group has shown dedication and drive throughout the competition, and our placement testifies to that.

“It has always been a privilege to represent Penn College and the Construction Management Program at CSA competitions. Attending ASC for the past three years has been one of my favorite academic experiences, ”said Grates.

“Going against the best construction management colleges and universities our region has to offer – and being able to take first and second place in the Heavy / Civil category in consecutive years – is proof May Penn College provide an education that guarantees a prosperous future for all of us.

Students were also able to attend a career fair and network with over a dozen potential employers in the region (which covers Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and West Virginia).
