first_imgMAYBERRY WE MISS YOUGavel Gamut By Jim RedwineIn December 1991 my family and I ate at Luby’s Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas. There was no trace of the bodies, blood and shattered glass from the October 16, 1991, mass shooting. We still felt their presence. Although I remembered the city riots of the 1960s and ’70s and had closely followed the violence of 1968, the utter randomness of the Luby’s murders stoked more personal concerns. To slaughter people, one did not even know struck me as much more horrendous than the misguided criminal actions of zealots.While America’s 20th century experience with deadly violence from 1900 up to the 1960’s was extensive and tragic, as Jasmine Henrique reported in her article Mass Shootings in America: A Historical Review (Global Research News, 2013), the victims were almost always members of the killer’s own family or were the unfortunate object of a felonious act such as a specific, intentional robbery that was committed in secret. However, in most of the last half of the 20th century and the first nineteen years of the 21st century, America has endured public mass killings of persons who were strangers to their murderers.Memories of Luby’s came back to me as I participated in an internet class on the judge and courthouse security taught by my friend and fellow faculty member Judge D. Neil Harris from Mississippi. Judge Harris along with other faculty of the National Judicial College including me is teaching a six-week course to seventeen judges from across America. Of course, it is not just the judiciary that needs to be concerned about security.If you recall, when this course on general judicial topics started three weeks ago I suggested in this column there was much we modern judges could learn by examining how courts and judges arose originally. That is when humans considered net-working to be making friends with the folks in neighboring huts. As for court security in those bygone days about all that was required was for the judge to treat people who came to court as the judge would want to be treated. This worked pretty well until the world began to fill up with people who were not comfortable living in a smaller area.But now, as William Wordsworth (1770-1850) might say, “The world is too much with us”. Or as Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) might have nostalgically wished if he were in charge of courthouse security, “That security system is best that restricts the least”. Unfortunately, we can no longer simply return to nature. The world has moved on.Whereas in 1950 there were 151 million people in the United States and it seemed space was infinite, in 2019 we have 327 million and it has become difficult to stretch out. Mayberry, our TV town of 2,000, has metamorphosed into what feels like a megalopolis from sea to sea and from Mexico to Canada. Sheriff Taylor, who did not even carry a gun, ordered Deputy Barney Fife to carry only one bullet and keep it in his shirt pocket.It may be that overpopulation has impacted our behavior. Dr. John Calhoun (1917-1995) studied population density using lab rats as subjects. While many other scientists point out humans are not rats and are more able to adapt as conditions change, it may be our precipitous increase in mass shootings of random victims has come about as, at least, a partial result of population density. In their analysis of Calhoun’s theories, Doctors Edmund Ramsden and Jon Adams in their article Escaping the Laboratory: The Rodent Experiments of John B. Calhoun & Their Cultural Influence (Journal of Social History, Spring 2009) stated:“As population density (of the rat city) increased it became ever more difficult for an individual to control the frequency of social contact. The result was unwanted interaction, leading to adverse reactions such as hostility and withdrawal, and ultimately, to the type of social and psychological breakdown seen during the latter stages in his (Calhoun’s) crowded pens.”To solve a problem it helps to understand the cause of the problem It maybe there are more valid causes for mass shootings than increasing population density. If so, they should be defined. However, if our teeming mass of humanity is contributing, we should address it and use our Homo sapiens adaptability to assuage the carnage. Regardless, whatever the etiology of increasing societal, including the courthouse, violence there is no doubt is occurring.As reported by Timm Fautsko, Steve Berson and Steve Swensen of the National Center for State Courts and the Center for Judicial and Executive Security, there were 199 incidents of courthouse violence from 1970-2009 with an increase noted each decade. As they posited:“We live in a time when threats against judges and acts of violence in courthouses and courtrooms are occurring with greater frequency than ever before.”As much as I yearn to return to Mayberry and rely upon my mother’s stated advice, “Jimmy, just be nice”, the evidence overcomes the myth. Society, including the judicial system, must face the reality of a 21st-century world. Security is necessary. That is why the Indiana Supreme Court in its Administrative Order AD19 requires each county court system to develop a security plan, seek approval for that plan, implement that plan and update the plan every two years.I do not like it and my guess is neither does the Supreme Court. However, I, and I believe they, know it is necessary.For more Gavel Gamut articles go to www.jamesmredwine.comOr “Like” us on Facebook at JPegRanchBooks&KnittingFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

TOWIE star promotes the health benefits of bread

first_imgThe Federation of Bakers has teamed up with TOWIE star Georgia Kousoulou to launch a sportswear range inspired by bread. Featuring slogans including ‘I Run on Bread’, and ‘Eat, Sleep, Toast, Tone’, the limited-edition collection of leggings and vests aims to promote the humble loaf as the “perfect workout partner” and a healthy source of carbohydrate.The collaboration comes on the back of research which revealed that young women were unnecessarily shunning carbs from their diet.The poll of 2,000 females aged 18-35, conducted by research firm Opiniun, found that as many as 59% disregarded bread as a healthy source of carbohydrate, while more than a third (37%) believed that avoiding carbs entirely was an effective way to shape up.In addition, only 22% would consider eating bread as a means of boosting energy levels before exercise, the survey showed.  Sports nutritionist Anita Bean welcomed the pro-carb message and insisted bread had endured a “rough time” over the past few years due to the low-carb, gluten-free and fad diet trends.“There is no need for the 99% of the population who do not have coeliac disease to avoid bread,” she said. “Bread is good for you and is a healthy choice as part of a balanced diet. It is an important source of carbohydrate, which fuels the brain, nervous system and heart, as well as all your daily activities and exercise. It’s low fat, low in sugar, and wholegrain, wholemeal and brown bread is high in fibre, so If you’re serious about getting into shape, then bread can help you achieve this.”Kousoulou added: “As much as we can all get carried away with the latest expensive fad health trend, bread is an important part of eating healthily and is the perfect fuel for my workouts.”last_img read more

Club brings Hawaii to Notre Dame

first_imgStepan Center heated up Saturday night with Hawaii Club’s annual Lu’au celebration of Hawaiian culture. The event featured Hawaiian food, music and hula dancing amidst an extensively decorated arena, freshman club member and Hawaiian nativeMatt Matasci said. “Parents back home pick flowers and have them sent [for decorations],” he said. Parents of natives also sent Hawaiian shirts and necklaces for the Lu’au’s merchandise table, Matasci said. The efforts of the club members and their parents did not go unnoticed at the Lu’au. “It’s a great atmosphere,” junior attendee Tony Lefeld said. “Stepan Center is surprisingly well decorated.” Sophomore Camille Muth, secretary of the club, said the key function of Hawaii Club is to provide a supportive community for Hawaiian students making the tough transition from tropical sunshine to blustery permacloud. “This is one of those groups that really makes me feel at home here,” Muth said. The club forms its close bonds by recruiting members early, she said. The club holds meetings for incoming freshman the summer before they begin at Notre Dame to welcome them to the club and the University. These extensive efforts have translated into strong membership. “Most people from Hawaii tend to join the club,” Matasci said. “There are some things that you can’t understand unless you’re from Hawaii. It’s nice to have people from Hawaii to relate to.” Although the Lu’au is the club’s largest event, Muth said the Hawaii Club will continue to be a fun outlet for Hawaiian students on campus. “We all just get along really well, and have fun no matter what we’re doing,” she said.last_img read more

Does the Mainstream Corrupt?

first_imgAs a competitive kayaker, I have always laughed at the word “pro” when it is accompanied with my sport.  Due to the small numbers in the whitewater industry, there are very few, if any, athletes who can eke a living solely out of being an athlete.  The people who are passionate and dedicated enough to try to make their living in the industry end up doing a number of different things to make ends meet… design product, produce videos, take pictures, etc.I have sometime dreamt of what it would feel like to sign the multi-million dollar contracts that exist in some larger sports.  There couldn’t be anything cooler than doing what you love to do, and being compensated well enough to support your family once you have cashed in your athletic shelf life.As far as kayaking goes however… there is no doubt about the fact that our sport is continuing its movement towards the mainstream.  I just watched this video of whitewater legend Steve Fisher dropping Jackass personality Bam Margera off of 82 foot Metlako Falls in Oregon:With Margera and motorsports icon Travis Pastrana giving kayaking some legitimate press, things seem to be accelerating towards the world of energy drinks and other commercial involvement in our sport.  While athletes are obviously going to be psyched about the increased revenue injection into the pie, my question to you is this…Is exposure, money, and the movement to the mainstream a good thing?There is something to be said for the grassroots nature of a bunch of people doing something that they love simply because they love it, and with no ulterior motives.  The river is a place of solitude and meditation that doesn’t lend itself well to spectators, grandstands, and booming commentators.  We risk losing something essential about our sport if that is the way things develop…On the other side of the coin, it is impossible to get on the river without being affected by its power, and realizing what is really important out there.  The same people who are currently leading the mainstream development of our sport are also those who have the deepest respect for the river.I competed in a spectacular event this past weekend by the name of the North Fork Championships.  This race was an unbelievable one to be a part of… 30 invited athletes, five wildcards, a massive class V rapid, remote control camera helicopters, a Red Bull ramp… you get the idea.  Regardless of the high profile nature of it, and the huge cash purse that was up for grabs, the competitors banded together like no event that I have ever seen.  Lines and strategies were shared freely, and everyone had each other’s backs at all times.  A great river was done justice through a great event and great paddlers.  And there was not a spec of garbage to be seen afterwards… the rapid roared on as it always had.Ultimately, there will be people on both sides of the argument here.  I am excited about the development of our sport, but I just hope that we can all keep those roots in mind.  Let’s channel that development to increase advocacy for clean water, river access, and protection of the wild places on the planet.  I think that we can have it all if we do it right.What do you think?last_img read more
