Legendary manager joins Berahino debate: ‘It’s completely unacceptable for a player to strike!’

first_imgBassett endured similar circumstances when Dutch forward Pierre van Hooijdonk, who he labelled a ‘waste of space’, refused to play during his time at Forest, and the 70-year-old feels Berahino is obliged to honour his contract.“It’s completely unacceptable for a player to go on strike. They’ve signed a contract and if the club don’t honour that the player is straight onto the PFA who come down on them like a tonne of bricks,” Bassett told talkSPORT.“If he refuses to play then the club can suspend him and fine him two weeks wages every two weeks but of course it’s no help to the club and no use to the player.“You have to accept that if the clubs can’t agree a fee you’ve got to get on with it – you never know what might happen six months later.”Berahino’s public damning of Peace has cast the spotlight over the Baggies chairman after he continually blocked the 22-year-old’s proposed exit, and Bassett claims neither protagonist, Peace or Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, are to blame for the fiasco.He added: “Peace is entitled to ask what figure he wants for Berahino. It’s not up to him to decide what he thinks it is unless there’s a buyout clause in his contract.“You can’t blame him for trying to get the maximum money he can and you can’t blame Levy for only being prepared to go so far.“The buying club thinks that the selling club will get desperate right at the death or the other club hangs on and they hope they get the figure they want.“There’s brinkmanship the entire time – these things always get left to the last moment.” 1 Former Wimbledon and Nottingham Forest manager Dave Bassett has become the latest footballing figurehead to discuss the Saido Berahino transfer furore, stating it is ‘completely unacceptable’ for a player to go on strike.Tottenham had two deadline day bids rejected for the West Brom striker, who duly took to Twitter to vent his frustration and pledged never to play for the Baggies again while chairman Jeremy Peace is still at the helm.last_img read more

Atletico Madrid monitoring long-term Manchester United target

first_img1 Atletico Madrid are interested in long-term Manchester United target Nicolas Gaitan.The Benfica midfielder has remained loyal to the Portuguese club over the years, despite reportedly being trailed by United during several transfer windows.Gaitan recently signed a new contract with Benfica, but according to A Bola, Atletico are readying a bid for the Argentinean.Gaitan’s release clause has been set at £34m but the report suggests Benfica would accept a fee of around £27m.Atletico’s manager Diego Simeone has been a long-term admirer of his 27-year-old Argentine compatriot and is confident the Spanish side can agree a deal with Benfica this month, particularly with the club facing the prospect of a transfer ban after the January window closes.

Teacher abuse

first_imgThose are the AP’s findings after reporters sought disciplinary records in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The result is an unprecedented national look at the scope of sex offenses by educators — by of breach of trust.The 7-month investigation found 2,570 educators whose teaching credentials were revoked, denied, voluntarily surrendered or limited from 2001 through 2005 following allegations of sexual misconduct.Young people were the victims in at least 1,801 of the cases, and more than 80 percent of those were students. More than half the educators who were punished by their states also were convicted of crimes related to the misconduct.The findings draw obvious comparisons to sex abuse scandals in other institutions, among them the Roman Catholic Church. A review by America’s Catholic bishops found that about 4,400 of 110,000 priests were accused of molesting minors from 1950 through 2002.Beyond the horror of individual crimes, the larger shame is the institutions that govern education have only sporadically addressed a problem that’s been apparent for years.“From my own experience — this could get me in trouble — I think every single school district in the nation has at least one perpetrator. At least one,” says Mary Jo McGrath, a Santa Barbara lawyer who has spent 30 years investigating misconduct in schools. “It doesn’t matter if it’s urban or rural or suburban.”Throughout the Southland there have been several examples of teachers who have continued to teach after being arrested for underage sex offenses, or who have not had their credentials immediately suspended.Eric Olsen, 29, a former substitute teacher in the Ontario-Montclair school district, was convicted of lewd acts with a minor after his June 2006 arrest.He said in a jailhouse interview that he allowed little girls to sit on his lap, and became sexually aroused.Olsen told police that he was banned from Central School District in Rancho Cucamonga in December and San Bernardino City Unified School District in April 2005 for similar actions.In the Central School District in Rancho Cucamonga, officials reported similar allegations about Olsen to the children’s services in December 2005, but the Sheriff’s Department said it has no record of the incident.Jelani Kimble, a substitute teacher from West Covina, was also arrested in June 2006, and later convicted of oral copulation with a 17-year-old girl from the class he was teaching at Northview High School.Although Kimble was convicted in August 2006, he did not have his teacher’s credentials suspended until November, and not revoked until February of this year, according to state documents.A teacher at Bonita High School, Walter Edward Babst, continued teaching for a week after being caught in January 2006 in a sex sting on camera for a “Dateline NBC” program in Riverside County.Babst’s defense lawyer and several local citizens who had seen ads for the TV program that showed Babst’s face called Bonita Unified School District and told them about him before Riverside County authorities got around to calling.Activist Terri Miller from the Las Vegas-based Stop Education Sexual Abuse, Misconduct, and Exploitation Organization calls the movement of a sexual offender from one school district to another without being flagged as an offender “passing the trash.”“We need laws that will aggressively hold accountable people who enable sex offenders by not reporting information on them to law enforcement,” Miller said.She noted that the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing state agency is very active in suspending teacher’s credentials when they get information from local school districts and law agencies.“The problem is often that local agencies just don’t make sure they tell the state,” Miller said.Like Olsen’s, the cases that the AP found were those of everyday educators — teachers, school psychologists, principals and superintendents among them. They’re often popular and recognized for excellence and, in nearly nine out of 10 cases, they’re male.While some were accused of abusing students in school, others were cited for sexual misconduct after hours that didn’t necessarily involve a kid from their classes.The overwhelming majority of cases involved public school teachers, since many private schools don’t require a teaching license.Two major teachers’ unions, the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association, each denounced sex abuse while emphasizing the need to consider educators’ rights.Kathy Buzad of the AFT said that “if there’s one incident of sexual misconduct between a teacher and a student that’s one too many.”In practice, the AP found less vigilance.The AP discovered efforts to stop individual offenders but, overall, a deeply entrenched resistance toward recognizing and fighting abuse. It starts in school hallways, where fellow teachers look away or feel powerless to help. School administrators make behind-the-scenes deals to avoid lawsuits and other trouble. And in state capitals and Congress, lawmakers shy from tough state punishments or any cohesive national policy for fear of disparaging a vital profession.Abuse also is treated with misplaced fascination in American culture.“It’s dealt with in a salacious manner with late-night comedians saying, ‘What 14-year-old boy wouldn’t want to have sex with his teacher?’ It trivializes the whole issue,” says Robert Shoop, a professor of educational administration at Kansas State University who wrote a book to help school districts deal with sexual misconduct.“In other cases, it’s reported as if this is some deviant who crawled into the school district — ‘and now that they’re gone, everything’s OK.’ But it’s much more prevalent than people would think.”He and others who track the problem reiterated one point repeatedly during the AP investigation: Very few abusers get caught.They point to academic studies estimating that only about one in 10 victimized children report sexual abuse of any kind to someone who can do something about it. When it is reported, teachers, administrators and some parents frequently don’t — or won’t — recognize the signs that a crime is taking place.“They can’t see what’s in front of their face. Not unlike a kid in an alcoholic family, who’ll say, ‘My family is great,’” says McGrath, the California lawyer and investigator who now trains school systems how to recognize what she calls the “red flags” of misconduct.In Arcadia, in 2003, some those “red flags” may have been apparent.During a molestation trial for onetime Arcadia High School English teacher Phillip Sutliff, now 35, of Azusa, a onetime cheerleading coordinator at a local park told how she was seduced by Sutliff in 1993.At the time, Sutliff worked at a nearby recreation center.Earlier this year Sutliff had his California teaching credential suspended, but not revoked, after being convicted of 17 counts of sexual misconduct with a child under the age of 18.Investigators said Sutliff, who will be heading to state prison shortly after his Oct. 26 sentencing, had an inappropriate, sexual relationship with a former student for 2 ½ years, beginning when she was 16.But Sutliff’s single-subject teaching credential — issued on Aug. 22, 2003 and set to expire Sept. 1, 2008 — remains on hold.A young woman who testified against him said that in 1993 — when she was 16 and he was 21 — they had a brief, consensual fling. The pair worked at Live Oak Park in Temple City.“It shocks me that people don’t understand the severity of sexual abuse when it’s consensual,” said Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Phil Wojdak, who prosecuted Sutliff’s case. “The victims’ ability to have healthy relationships with men is taken away from them for years.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

They’re pursued, seduced and think they’re in love.An Associated Press investigation found more than 2,500 cases over five years in which educators were punished for actions from bizarre to sadistic.There are 3 million public school teachers nationwide, most devoted to their work. Yet the number of abusive educators, nearly three for every school day, speaks to a much larger problem in a system that is stacked against victims.Most of the abuse never gets reported. Those cases reported often end with no action. Cases investigated sometimes can’t be proven, and many abusers have several victims.And no one — not the schools, not the courts, not the state or federal governments — has found a surefire way to keep molesting teachers out of classrooms. A teacher at Bonita High School continued teaching for a week after being caught in January of 2006 in a sex sting in Riverside County.A substitute teacher at Northview High School retained a full teaching credential for three months after he was convicted of molesting a 17-year-old he taught at the school.Another teacher, who explained how he let young girls sit on his lap to gratify himself, taught in two nearby school districts before he was jailed.These are only a few instances of a widespread problem in American schools: Sexual misconduct by the very teachers who are supposed to be nurturing the nation’s children.last_img read more

Preaching Capitalism

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.It’s also the checkbook in your purse, the price tags in the stores, your dreams of a better job or paying off your plastic. Just as vital to the mission, Fox Business has made a good start in promoting optimism. On its first morning, a glowing anchorwoman noted that on the same date – Oct. 15 – back in 1951, a TV institution was born: “I Love Lucy.” Good call. Fox’s new institution-in-the-making could aptly be nicknamed “I Love Business.” This is in shrewd contrast to CNBC, the long-dominant financial network and now Fox’s archrival. At CNBC it’s not about love, but money. CNBC has always opted for an Alpha Male (or Female) style, a jackets-off, boiler-room image of urgency (even with the jackets on). On Fox Business, the style is more that of a chummy, overeager Eyewitness News team. By Frazier Moore THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Mission accomplished! So far, anyhow. Fox Business Network, which signed on last week, has swiftly gotten down to business with a wide-angle vision of business as more than just playing the market. Many from this friendly family already are known to viewers, including Fox News vets Neil Cavuto, David Asman and Dagen McDowell. There’s also former CNBC star Liz Claman, who last Thursday spent a pleasant hour with folksy uber-investor Warren Buffett in a chat that insistently was touted as newsbreaking. And there’s NBC’s “Today” alumna Alexis Glick who, on the first day, began with a bang from Times Square interviewing a man who does business as the Naked Cowboy. Accessorized only with boots, hat, tighty-whiteys and guitar, he boasted that by Christmas he expected “over one billion dollars accrued.” Glick gamely tried on his cowboy hat. Fox Business also has legitimate reports, and analysts and numbers. But nothing too intense. It’s easy-listening TV. (Also easy on the eyes: Its women manifest a certain high-gloss look its competition wouldn’t dare.) At one point, Fox Business co-anchors showcased an inexpensive gadget that lets you use your phone to make free calls through your computer, while, over on CNBC, the topic at hand was: When, and how, do you fire a CEO? A CNBC anchor pelted a financial expert with wonkish questions about interest rates while Fox Business had a lifestyles-of- the-rich-and-famous interlude with power ties: A fashion expert invited anchor Peter Barnes to swap his red necktie for a blue one that sells for $1,150. Barnes couldn’t resist modeling it. Monday, both networks had plenty to say about Apple’s huge quarterly profit. But Fox Business couldn’t say enough, with correspondent Jenna Lee even posted outside Apple’s Fifth Avenue store, where she cooed about the product line and interviewed satisfied customers. But why not go crazy? Since everybody has an iPod and thinks Apple is cool, viewer interest in the company reaches far beyond people who will ever own its stock. The bottom line difference between the two networks: CNBC transports you, the ordinary viewer, into the business world, while Fox Business, as it promised from the start, brings the business world to you on your couch somewhere off Main Street. It also does its best to reassure you that business is good (in all senses of the phrase). With that in mind, Fox News boss Roger Ailes was baiting the competition months ago. Last February, he told The New York Times he had often seen things on CNBC “where they are not as friendly to corporations and profits as they should be.” As for Team Fox, he added, “We don’t get up every morning thinking business is bad.” Probably not. But Ailes has made a policy of acting as if he thinks his business – the news business – is bad enough. Bad, that is, with the notable exception of his staked-out corner of the media universe, where a handful of righteous players (like newborn Fox Business and his vibrant Fox News Channel) hold forth against what they decry as the liberal media elite. Fox Business reflects a branding strategy straight from the well-thumbed Ailes playbook. Fox Business spent much of last Friday observing the anniversary of 1987’s “Black Monday” market crash with recaps, analysis and where-were-you-then recollections. The moral of the story, as framed by the network: Things turned out all right, didn’t they? Thank goodness Fox Business is here now to keep spreading the good word. Most media outlets are all too focused on “biz-blasting,” as Asman termed it during his interview with a guest who duly echoed the Fox Business gospel. Dan Gainor, director of the Business & Media Institute, came packing research he said proved most media coverage slams the business world. Item: During the market explosion the past few years, the media, instead of “crowing about it,” dwelled on “downbeat news.” Already a viewer can sense this won’t be a problem on Fox Business. Here the glass of capitalism is apt to be reassuringly half-full, if not overflowing. Free enterprise won’t be blasted by Fox Business, which is busy running interference for it. And encouraging the audience not to get rich, necessarily, but to believe. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The landscape for aging workers

first_imgBoston College established the Center for Retirement Research in 1998 through a grant from the Social Security Administration. Its mission is to produce first-class research and to forge a strong link between the academic community and decision makers in the public and private sectors. One of Boston College’s recent research findings is that almost 45 percent of working-age households are “at risk” of being unable to maintain their pre-retirement standard of living in retirement. Boston College also has the Center on Aging & Work/Workplace Flexibility. It helps businesses prepare for the opportunities and challenges of an aging workforce. A recent fact sheet noted that those under 50 were 42 percent more likely to be called for an interview than those 50 or older. The University of North Carolina, at Greensboro, has a gerontology program that focuses its research on aging and business. Research on age and work also has been conducted by The Conference Board in New York for the past 25 years, advising employers about the implication of an aging population. The Conference Board recently received a $2 million grant from Atlantic Philanthropies USA to study the inclusion and engagement of late-career workers in corporations and nonprofit organizations. Corporate Voices for Working Families established a program called Mature Workforce Pillar. In its work with Buck Consultants, Corporate Voices found that 60 percent of a private sector sample did not see the aging workforce as a significant issue. One new research group is the The Partnership for Public Service: Fed Experience Project. This year, 31 percent of all federal employees will be eligible to retire, and a U.S. Government Accountability Office publication estimates that 15 percent actually will retire. The message is that the federal government will have a labor shortage. As a result, the Fed Experience Project is exploring ways to attract experienced (older) workers for paid government service. The federal government is telling us that opportunities are available. Eighty-five percent of federal jobs are outside Washington, D.C., and more than 50,000 are overseas. California has almost 13 percent of the total number of federal positions with federal agencies in Los Angeles (GAO, Securities and Exchange Commission) and Pasadena (National Aeronautics and Space Administration). Among other things, the Fed Experience Project research includes checking on whether online access to jobs is user friendly to mature workers. Our hope is that research, public policy recommendations, innovative practices and the value of experience and maturity will trickle down to create a truly equal opportunity employment environment for all ages. Such an environment will benefit mature job seekers and employees, and employers who need a competent and effective workforce.

Universities also are a major contributor in the area of age and work. Dear readers: I recently have received numerous queries about the climate for people working in their 50s and 60s. So I thought it might be interesting to share with you a national view on what’s happening regarding age and work. Let’s begin with the largest organization representing seniors, AARP. Its division of Workforce Issues focuses on the 50-plus group from employer and employee perspectives.

With the help of 30 friends, Silva dug a 50-foot trench and lined it with cement to create a flow channel from a pond into a larger lake. It took them seven hours. “I was very happy to see the water flow,” he said. “It was a success.” Silva, who is also on Whittier High’s wrestling team, joined the Scouts at age 12 as part of the Webelos Scouts, a year-round family- and home-centered program that develops ethical decision-making skills. He said he gets the same satisfaction from the Scouts as he does wrestling. “I am part of a larger group of people,” Silva said, “but ultimately, I have to depend on myself.” Silva, a member of Troop 497 in the Rio Hondo Chapter of the council, said his time with the Scouts has helped him mature. “It certainly has trained me for the real world,” he said. “It’s taught me to be a leader.” All he has to do is look at fellow Eagle Scouts, including former President Gerald Ford, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, former Olympian and world record holder in the triple and long jump Willie Banks and former Senator and NBA star Bill Bradley, to confirm his assessment that the Scouts breed leaders. “The fact that a young man is an Eagle Scout has always carried with it a special significance as he enters higher education, business and community service,” Zuniga said. “It’s a special achievement for him.” For Silva, his future is in literature. He’s written several short stories and even a novel. “I’m inspired by real life and the struggles I have with family and school,” he said. “My writing gives me clarity to help solve the situations.” [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
