Allegations against law firm come out at hearing

first_img(Photo: Lawyer David Blott taken at the time of his graduation from the University of Alberta Law School in 1998) By Kathleen MartensAPTN National NewsVANCOUVER–A Calgary law firm under fire for the way it handled residential school survivor compensation cases was cleared in two earlier peer reviews, a lawyer representing the firm says.The Alberta Law Society twice looked into complaints against Blott & Company and found nothing wrong, Blott’s lawyer Roy Millen says. The investigations were carried out in 2009 and 2011 after one client complained he was overcharged and another said he received an advance at a high interest rate.Similar complaints are now being investigated by a court monitor following a hearing in B.C. Supreme Court last Thursday.Blott & Company can resume working with its 3,000 residential school clients while the investigation is conducted by Crawford Class Action Services of Ontario, the court monitor for the Residential Schools Settlement Agreement.The settlement includes financial compensation for survivors of sexual and the worst physical abuse while students at Indian Residential Schools through what is called the Independent Assessment Process (IAP).Justice Brenda Brown has yet to release a written order following last week’s court hearing approving the investigation.Crawford alleges four clients were advanced loans against their six-figure compensation payouts and charged interest in the 20 per cent range, along with service fees – something Crawford says violates the IAP rule of full compensation paid only to survivors, who can settle with third parties later. Court heard Blott & Company was not the only law firm arranging settlement loans.Crawford lawyer Lou Zivot told the judge one complainant was expecting more than $100,000 but received around $30,000 after being invoiced for two loans valued at $70,000 – more than she says she got.Crawford further alleged some clients weren’t properly represented, which Blott denies. And, that some clients were given big-screen television sets and laptop computers, the costs of which were deducted from the compensation payout.A publication ban remains in effect on any information that would identify the four complainants and the names of 10 associates that work at Blott & Company.At the same court hearing, Brown lifted her 15-day suspension of Blott & Company operations that put 56 compensation hearings on hold. She’d suspended the firm’s activities prior to the Nov. 10 hearing.Those hearings frozen from November 1 to November 18 are now being re-scheduled by the Indian Residential Schools Adjudication Secretariat. Its adjudicators hear evidence from survivors at confidential hearings and decide how much compensation is due.Compensation payouts range from $105,000 to $455,000. About 200 lawyers work with IAP clients.Roy Millen said IAP cases comprise 90 per cent of Blott & Company business. He also told court the firm was the subject of an investigation started by the adjudication secretariat that didn’t interview founderDavid Blott. He said David Blott is willing to meet with the adjudication secretariat’s representative to address any concerns.Chief Adjudicator Daniel Ish confirmed he ordered an internal investigation last February because of complaints from clients and his adjudicators. Those were that Blott lawyers weren’t properly preparing clients for their hearings, “major discrepancies” between IAP applications and evidence heard by the adjudicator, incomplete documents, and “excessive” cancellation of hearings.Ish noted Blott challenged the authority of his office to conduct an investigation. Blott also denied the allegations.Ish says it was first anticipated 12,500 survivors would seek compensation but he says the caseload is now at 27,000. Already 11,500 cases have been heard across Canada.When the IAP concludes next year, Ish predicts somewhere between $2 billion and $3 billion will have been paid out.As for the loans, Millen said Blott arranged them for 68 clients but hasn’t done so in the past two years. Court heard the loans were obtained through three Alberta-based lending companies: Funds Now Inc., BridgePoint Financial Services and Settlement Lenders of Canada.David Hamm, the president of Funds Now, said in an affidavit Blott didn’t receive any direct or indirect payment for arranging loans, adding Funds Now is no longer operating.The Residential Schools Settlement Agreement states compensation cannot be paid to other parties, including lenders.Millen says the loans occurred during the precursor to the IAP – the earlier compensation process called the Alternative Dispute Resolution.He said Blott & Company has handled 500 IAP cases in the past eight months without complaint.In fact, two Blott associates said they were each attending and billing for 20 compensation hearings per month.kmartens@aptn.calast_img read more

Cong withdraws ad with Lankan child

Unfazed by the resultant controversy, the Congress spokesmen had said that the photo was only symbolic but the idea was to highlight the issue of malnutrition in Gujarat. (Daily Pioneer) Succumbing to intense criticism from all quarters, the Gujarat unit of the Congress has withdrawn its advertisement on malnutrition that had used a flood affected Sri Lankan baby’s photo to ‘prove’ its allegations.Sources said that the controversial advertisement has been withdrawn from all the media like hoardings, internet, newspapers and other forms. Claiming that about 45 per cent children in Gujarat are malnourished, the Congress advertisement had shown a skinny child’s picture but it was soon revealed by internet savvy people that the baby was of Sri Lanka origin. read more

One America News sues Rachel Maddow for 10 million

SAN DIEGO — A conservative television network sued Rachel Maddow for more than $10 million on Monday for calling it “paid Russian propaganda.”One America News filed the federal defamation suit in San Diego.The small, family-owned network based in San Diego is challenging Fox News for conservative cable and satellite TV viewers and has received favourable tweets from President Donald Trump.The lawsuit contends that Maddow’s comment on her July 22 MSNBC show were retaliation after OAN President Charles Herring accused cable television giant Comcast of censorship. The suit contends that Comcast refused to carry the channel because it “counters the liberal politics of Comcast’s own news channel, MSNBC.”A week after Herring sent an email to a Comcast executive, Maddow opened her MSNBC show by referring to a report in the Daily Beast that said an OAN employee also worked for Sputnik News, which is linked to the Russian government.“In this case, the most obsequiously pro-Trump right-wing news outlet in America really literally is paid Russian propaganda,” Maddow said on “The Rachel Maddow Show.”“Their on-air U.S. politics reporter is paid by the Russian government to produce propaganda for that government,” Maddow said.In the lawsuit, OAN said Kristian Rouz was a freelancer for Sputnik News, not a staff employee, and his work there had nothing to do with his work for OAN.The lawsuit includes a statement from Rouz that said he wrote some 1,300 articles over the past 4 1/2 years for Sputnik but “I have never written propaganda, disinformation, or unverified information.”“One America is wholly owned, operated and financed by the Herring family in San Diego. They are as American as apple pie. They are not paid by Russia and have nothing to do with the Russian government,” Skip Miller, an attorney representing OAN, said in a statement. “This is a false and malicious libel, and they’re going to answer for it in a court of law.”The suit names Maddow, Comcast, MSNBC and NBCUniversal Media.A message seeking comment from an MSNBC spokeswoman was not immediately returned.However, the lawsuit included an Aug. 6 letter from Amy Wolf, an attorney for NBCUniversal News Group, to OAN’s attorney.It said OAN “publishes content collected or created by a journalist who is also paid by the Russian government for writing over a thousand articles. Ms. Maddow’s recounting of this arrangement is substantially true and therefore not actionable.”The Associated Press read more

Talks on Cyprus to resume tomorrow at UN

Wednesday’s meeting between the Secretary-General, the Greek Cypriot leader, Tassos Papadopoulos, and the Turkish Cypriot leader, Rauf Denktash, ended after about 90 minutes.The discussions began yesterday at UN Headquarters in New York with the guarantor nations – Greece, Turkey and the United Kingdom – also on hand to support the process.Mr. Annan had written to the two leaders last week, inviting them to resume negotiations on the basis of his settlement plan. The objective is to submit a completed text to separate referenda in April, in time for a reunited Cyprus to accede to the European Union on 1 May, along with nine other countries. read more

A fifth of 1624 year olds spend more than seven hours a

“It is not just about it affecting relationships and productivity but also mental health. An Oxford University study last year showed self-reported mental wellbeing peaked for 15-year olds at four hours a day on screens. After that further screen time had a negative effect on their wellbeing.”For a generation born around the turn of the millennium when the first camera phone was launched and Sony Playstation 2 was taking the world by storm, smartphones are the main mode of accessing the internet.Even the oldest of the 16-24 year-olds were just 13 when the iPhone was launched. Now 95 per cent of that age group use their smartphone to go online, compared to 70 per cent of all adults and just 22 per cent of 65 to 74-year-olds.Young women appear to be more addicted to their smartphones than young men, with texting (53 per cent), logging on to social media sites (44 per cent) and browsing the web (34 per cent) the most popular activity while commuting. The only downside, she admitted, was that her husband Chris, 56, “didn’t like it” when she used her phone when watching TV. Keita Eriawan, 20, a student at Hult international business school in London, said he downloaded the app because of his frustration that his habit of constantly checking his phone was distracting him from his studies.He said it helped him become aware of how much time he wasted: “I used to check my phone every five minutes for social media and football updates. That would be over eight to nine hours a day. Now I would say it’s about half that time.”By contrast, Martin Lock, chief executive of Silversurfers, said he expected a sharp increase in older people’s time on the internet in coming years as the government took more services online and more tech-savvy middle-aged users got older.Margie Savory, 69, a former TV producer from Bridport, admits she is addicted to her phone, using it to keep in contact with family and friends, and up to date with community news. “I use it to keep in touch, through Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Twitter,” she said.“We have a WhatsApp group with neighbours who are older than me where we can send each other pictures if we do something fun or are on holiday. We keep an eye on each other’s gardens when we are away.” Almost a fifth of young people aged 16 to 24 are so addicted to their smartphones that they spend more than seven hours a day online, new Ofcom data reveals.The exclusive analysis for The Telegraph shows young people in that age bracket  are twice as likely as the rest of the population to be online for what is equivalent to over two full 24-hour days a week.The data also reveals a generational digital divide as just 1 per cent of over 65s and only 6 per cent of 55-64 year olds spend over 50 hours a week online, compared to the 18 per cet of 16-24 year olds, equivalent to more than 1.1m young people.Ofcom provided the inter-generational breakdown of heavy users after revealing earlier this month that Britons are on average spending a day a week online and check their smartphones every 12 minutes.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––Online experts expressed concern that such heavy use of phones, tablets and PCs could be having a negative impact on relationships, productivity and even mental health.One in seven (15 per cent) of younger users admitted they were more productive when they lost access to the internet, and one in five (19 per cent) said they were less distracted. More than half admitted their devices interrupted face-to-face conversations with families and friends. For all adults, the proportion spending over 40 hours online has quadrupled, from 5 per cent to 19 per cent since the iPhone was launched in 2007. Among 16-24 year olds, it rises to 33 per cent. Three-quarters of the age group spend more than a day a week online.The young generation is more tolerant about using smartphones during activities with family or friends, with just 21 per cent saying it is unacceptable while watching TV with others, compared to 41 per cent of all adults. Half thought it was acceptable to check their phone for notifications during a meal compared with just 17 per cent of all adults.There are signs, however, of a nascent backlash among the young – just as there is a tandem drive by the government to get more older people online so they can more easily access services and care.Hold, a Norwegian social enterprise company, claims to have signed up 100,000 young Britons to an app which uses similar psychology to the social media giants by rewarding students for the time they stay off, rather than on, their phones. In Norway, 125,000 students use it. Women aged 16-24 years old on average spend a full hour longer each day on their phones than men of the same age, four hours a day compared to three by the men. The rewards such as drinks, food or travel are provided by sponsors of the company, which has been backed with £250,000 by Brent Hoberman, who works with Princes William and Harry to counter cyber-bullying, and Henry Lane Fox, who was his co-founder at LastMinute.Com. “I feel that age group are aware of their digital dependence and are making efforts and attempts to cut down,” said Tanya Goodin, founder of digital health consultancy Time to Log Off.

Robbie We talk about Plan A and Plan B and crap like

first_img“They keep talking in England about trying to change things and make the national team a lot better.“In Ireland we need to try that as well but is it going to change straight away? It hasn’t changed since I walked in the door the day I first got here so I don’t think it’s going to change for a while.”The ‘fresh energy’ promised by Trapattoni sees two changes to the side with Anthony Pilkington handed his first competitive start on the left wing in place of James McClean, and Paul Green drafted in to bolster a central midfield missing the injured Glenn Whelan.Defeat tonight would leave Ireland needing favours elsewhere and a mathematical miracle to qualify. Despite the lingering disappointment of Friday, Keane says the importance of the game demands that the players be fully focused.“It’s very easy after the game to keep your head down. Everyone’s disappointed but certainly yesterday the training session was quite lively.We know the importance of this game so we certainly have to pick ourselves up because if not, we won’t be going to Brazil. Staying fully focused means no chat about Trapattoni’s future and the renewed pressure that the manager has come under in the last few days.“Whatever happens beyond these few games, that’s certainly out of my hands and the players’ hands,” Keane said.“As professionals we have to stand up and be professional in the job that we do, make sure we give as much as we can to that green jersey and the people back home who are watching us.“All you can do in life is try your best, do what you can to try and make people happy and do your best for the team. If that’s not good enough then that’s something that other people will have to look at.”Explainer: Here’s how Ireland can pull off a miracle and qualify for the World CupIreland fans ask ‘is there anything to be said for saying another mass?’ Since I’ve been the squad we’ve played the exact same way. We don’t have the personnel like Spain to get the ball down and have 80% possession against teams. We’re not that team.We know our strengths and we stick to it, unless it changes from grassroots but it’s not going to change certainly for a good few years.center_img WITH MORE THAN a hint of frustration, Robbie Keane acknowledged that Ireland don’t have a Plan B — because they don’t have the quality of players to vary their tactics.Defeat against Sweden left Ireland’s World Cup chances hanging by a thread and Giovanni Trapattoni’s side need a win in the Ernst Happel Stadion tonight to keep alive their fading hope of being in Brazil next summer.For that to happen they will need to improve on Friday’s damp squib where they reverted almost exclusively to long balls as they chased an equaliser in the last half-hour. Keane, Ireland’s record goalscorer, was bypassed.Giovanni Trapattoni’s system and substitutions have again been held up for criticism but on the eve of his 129th cap, Keane says the tactics have never changed regardless of the manager.“We talk about Plan A and Plan B and crap like that,” Keane said. “Ireland has never had a Plan B before. We’ve always had Plan A, simple as that.last_img read more

Four MPs return to PASOK but party still beset by turmoil

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Four MPs rejoined PASOK a few weeks after being ejected from the Socialists’ parliamentary group for opposing the latest austerity package, but their return did not disguise the deepening tension in the party.It was announced that former ministers Costas Skandalidis and Angela Gerekou, along with Michalis Kassis and Yiannis Koutsoukos would cease to be independent MPs. Their return took the number of PASOK lawmakers back up to 28, which is still lower than the 33 the party had after the national elections in June. It also increased the number of deputies in the tripartite coalition to 168, a comfortable majority in the 300-seat House.Their return came as PASOK heads toward its party congress at the end of the month. Preparations have led to tension within the party. A group of 75 members, including some MPs, issued a statement expressing concern about the way the congress is being planned. Their intervention is seen as casting doubts on Evangelos Venizelos’s leadership.The tense atmosphere in the party was evident when members faithful to former Prime Minister George Papandreou almost came to blows with Venizelos supporters at PASOK’s headquarters in central Athens on Wednesday over complaints that the congress participants had not been announced yet.The party could also suffer further damage from the parliamentary inquiry into the Lagarde list.Police experts informed MPs yesterday that files containing the names of some 2,000 Greek depositors had been opened on September 30, 2010, hours after the CD with the list was given to then Finance Minister Giorgos Papaconstantinou and that the person opening them had used 28 keywords to search the data, including “George Papandreou,” “Papakonstantinou” and names of other politicians and businessmen.The inquiry is likely to be extended until the end of March.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Verizons Super Bowl ad honors first responders months after throttling incident

first_img 3 The Santa Clara Fire Department said Verizon throttled their internet access while they were helping fight the Medocino Complex fire in California. The Mendocino Complex Fire burned more than 280,000 acres and destroyed at least 75 homes. Justin Sullivan / Getty Images Verizon thanked the first responder community in a new ad campaign that debuted during the Super Bowl Sunday night, months after the company was criticized for throttling California firefighters’ internet access as they battled one of the state’s largest wildfires, The ad includes interviews with first responders and NFL players who had experienced their own emergency situations in which first responders aided them. The ad ends with the message: “First responders answer the call. Our job is to make sure they can get it.” The ad is part of a larger video campaign, in which Verizon interviews 12 NFL athletes and coaches retelling their own stories of how first responders helped them.This is not the first time Verizon has run ads during the Super Bowl to thank first responders. It also did so in 2018. But this year’s campaign raised eyebrows after a much publicized incident with the Santa Clara Fire Department, which came to light as part of a lawsuit challenging the FCC’s 2017 repeal of Obama-era net neutrality rules. Feb 28 • Last chance to get 3 months of Mint Mobile service for $20 Share your voice Comments May 7 • 2020 Toyota Supra first drive review: More reset than reboot According to the court filing submitted in August, the Santa Clara Fire Department said while it was helping fight the Mendocino Complex fire, crews dispatched to coordinate resources in the field saw dramatic declines in their wireless speeds. The fire department had exceeded its data cap and Verizon had slowed down its service to a crawl. When department officials called the company, they were told by customer service that they needed to upgrade the service in order to reinstate full access to the internet. After the issue appeared in court documents, Verizon publicly apologized, stating it had been a customer service error — not a violation of net neutrality. On Monday, Verizon spokesman Rich Young reiterated that point. “What happened in Santa Clara was a one-time, isolated incident,” he said. “During the incident in Santa Clara, we made a mistake in failing to follow our own practice to waive data restrictions when the issue first came up.”Young added that since Verizon became aware of the throttling incident, it’s taken steps to ensure that regardless of the plan they’re on, first responders will not encounter data restrictions during a declared emergency. The company has also introduced a new plan for first responders that does not include restrictions.  The company has a dedicated website of special offerings for first responders, including discounted plans and discounts on accessories. But the timing of the Super Bowl ads showing appreciation for first responders was somewhat awkward, as only days before an attorney for the Santa Clara Fire Department was in federal court as part of the oral arguments in the case challenging the repeal of the net neutrality rules. The case pits Mozilla and several other internet companies, such as Etsy and Reddit, as well as 22 state attorneys general against the Republican-led FCC.  The Santa Clara Fire Department joined the lawsuit following the Verizon throttling incident. Even though the Santa Clara firefighters have conceded that Verizon didn’t violate net neutrality principles, their attorney argued the incident illustrates the lack of protections for public safety since net neutrality was repealed. “There’s nothing stopping companies from putting first responders at the back of the line, especially if they offer a commercial paid priority service,” Stephanie Weiner, who represented the firefighters in the oral arguments, said as she argued that the FCC should have made provisions for public safety in its order.But Verizon says it’s always supported the first responder community and will continue to do so. “The Santa Clara situation had nothing to do with net neutrality,” Young said. “We’re strongly committed to providing reliable services to public safety users, especially during times of emergency.  We’re continually working with them in providing multiple options to best fit their needs.” Verizon is also working with and raising money for the Gary Sinise Foundation, which offers financial support to first responders and their families. As part of its first responder appreciation campaign, the company said it’s donating $1.5 million to the foundation and on top of that will also contribute $1 whenever the Verizon ad campaign is mentioned on social media. Taking It to Extremes: Mix insane situations — erupting volcanoes, nuclear meltdowns, 30-foot waves — with everyday tech.

Heres When You Might See Season Two of One Punch Man

first_img ‘One Punch Man’ Get A Video Game, Probably Has More Punches11 Manga Series That Should Never Be Live Action Movies One Punch Man had a riveting first season that hooked viewers in with its unique premise and likable main character Saitama, who could take most enemies out with one punch. That’s not an exaggeration, as he was very much a force to be reckoned with. It made its debut on Adult Swim and won over scores of new anime fans with its silliness, relatable hero, creepy villains, and hilarious antics.It’s absolutely worth watching if you haven’t already, though its first season definitely wasn’t long enough to sate our hunger for all things One Punch. That’s why it’s such good news that a second season is possibly on its way.It seems rumors are swirling around that the series is set to return for a second season this year, and the episodes that will comprise the season are already supposedly in production. As far as a concrete date goes, that’s up for debate. The second season of the show could very well make its worldwide debut later in July this year, which is actually the second anniversary of One Punch Man’s original debut. That could change at any moment, however, and it could end up being sooner or later since there hasn’t been any official confirmation.If you’re interested in seeing what happens to Saitama in the next season ahead of time, however, you can pick up the manga and jump in to see what you’re missing without skipping a beat. Some spoilery predictions include the idea that Saitama will have some sort of vulnerability going forward and he may have to fight against Lord Boros.One thing’s for sure: Hopefully, Saitama finally earns some of the respect that’s been sorely missing from his treatment from the Hero Association he belongs to, and maybe we’ll see less of Genos this time around and more of the titular One Punch Man.

Off the eaten path Corderos Bar

first_imgRelated posts:Off the eaten path: Bar y Restaurante Rio de Janeiro Off the eaten path: Bar La Selegna Off the eaten path: Pad Thai Off the eaten path: The best of 2018 I’ve already highlighted what I think are the top three chifrijos in Costa Rica. Doing so was one of my first orders of business when I started this column.At the end of the day, chifrijo is the shining star of Costa Rica cuisine. My hunger for it will never be fully satisfied. The search for the best one in Costa Rica will always continue.But this week, I might have found its origin.Before a soccer game at the Ricardo Saprissa stadium last week in Tibas, I walked into the nearby Cordero’s Bar with my boys. It looked like my kind of place: a small hole in the wall with a dimly lit bar – or cantina as they are referred to in Spanish.The owner, Miguel Cordero, has been the owner of this family business since the very beginning and claims to have invented the chifrijo, right there, at Cordero’s Bar.I am not able to confirm that, but I don’t doubt the guy. The story of the alleged chifrijo invention is on the first page of the five-page menu. The history of the chifrijo according to Cordero’s Bar. (William Ayre / The Tico Times)In summary, in October of 1979 while in the kitchen at his bar, Don Miguel mixed together a little of everything that he had on hand and served it in a single bowl. He enjoyed it so much that he made a second one for a customer. Obviously, the rest is history. The name chifrijo is a combination of Chi from chicharron, chile and chimuchirri and Frijo for frijoles.The dish is now widely popular with many versions or “imitations” across the country. Most include a base of white rice and a topping of avocado as key ingredients. At Cordero’s, their chifrijo has neither. That’s how it should be, says Don Miguel.The chifrijo at Cordero’s Bar has perfectly cooked red beans, a generous amount of delicious fried pork, fresh tomato pico de gallo and a top-secret house sauce that they say makes all the difference.They’re very serious about the top-secret part too. I couldn’t get a single ingredient out of them and am ashamed to admit, I was not successful in guessing either.I literally have no idea what’s in it, but it tastes good. As always, I like to top mine off with a brave serving of the house-made hot sauce or pickled chilis. It adds a welcome touch of spice. On the side, as always, are tortilla chips. The chifrijo at Cordero’s Bar. (William Ayre / The Tico Times)Don Miguel not only claims to have invented the chifrijo, but he also owns the trademark to the word. It’s caused backlash for him after it became public knowledge that he had served a handful of other local bars with a legal notice for using it on their menus. I say if the man really did invent the dish and name it himself, then why not? More power to him.Though this is ‘the house of the chifrijo’, the food menu at Cordero’s Bar also highlights most other local bar food staples like olla de carne, ceviche, mondongo, and dados de queso. It also has as a selection of soups, rices, pastas, salads and desserts. For the place’s small size, the menu is quite expansive. I never tried anything besides the chifrijo, I like to stick with what works.Cordero’s Bar also has antique relics covering the walls. It could almost double as a museum. It’s been open for more than 30 years and has amassed quite a collection of old beer brand signage, as well as Coca-Cola glassware from every World Cup tournament dating back to the turn of the century.Additionally, there are framed photos of La Sele squads from before I was born around the restaurant. There are also different black-and-white photos of the owner with various politicians. At least, I think they’re politicians. Shame on me. I didn’t recognize any of them. The inside of Cordero’s Bar. (William Ayre / The Tico Times)These collectibles give the bar a lot of charm. The dark wood finishing does too. For me, a bar like Cordero’s is of historic significance, leftover from another time, and needs to be conserved.Prices per plate of food average around 2,500 colones (about $4), with the chifrijo surprisingly being one of the more expensive options at 3,700 colones (about $6). Drinks are cheap here too, as expected, with an Imperial beer costing 1,200 colones (about $2). Prices include all taxes. Portions are smaller, bocas style. Major credit cards are accepted.Cordero’s Bar is open seven days a week, from 11 a.m. until midnight. They close earlier, at 8 p.m., on Sundays. The bar is located on Avenida 53, 275 meters east of Pali, in Colima de Tibas. Street parking is easily available. Search “Cordero’s Bar” in Waze or Uber to arrive conveniently. William Ayre is a Canadian born chef and restaurateur who has spent the last half of his life doing business in Costa Rica, where he now considers to be home. Inspired by Anthony Bourdain, Ayre’s passion of experiencing different cultures through food has taken him to 35 different countries over five continents. Whether it’s a 20-course meal at a fine dining restaurant in Toronto, or cantina hopping in search for the best chifrijo here in San José, he fits in just fine. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

1425 South Columbia Road. If you need me Im here.It wasnt like he was trying to play Big Mr Coast Guard" That is what was commendable about the official actions of the Coast Guard harbor pilots and harbor police is that they recognized the value of the emergent resource around them They saw people with particular skills working in their areas of expertise doing things well and they came to the conclusion the response was better off letting them help Not everyone appreciates those contributions as readily as others Even after the August 2016 flooding in Louisiana we heard of some initial resistance to volunteer efforts But we cant tout the resilience of community or the value of the "whole community" in disaster response if we wholesale forbid them from stepping up to rightfully do what needs to be done We see that the willingness to "just do what needs to be done" a phrase that mariners used repeatedly after 9/11 to describe their actions is not a uniquely Gulf Coast tendency Nor is it uniquely American Consider the boat operators who spontaneously converged and worked alongside formal responders while a shooter attacked a youth camp on the Norwegian island of Utoya Like his 9/11 peers one boat operator described in a Telegraph interview that you "just do what it takes" In the flooding following Hurricane Harvey the Cajun Navy has been doing what it takes But it has also illustrated yet again that the success of our formal responses often depends upon latent capacities already present in our communities Following Hurricane Harvey we saw law enforcement officials such as those in Harris County specifically reach out to include such emergent resources in their response Such actions are commendable and likely helped to save lives We must be clear: those emergent efforts do not replace the resources required from outside the affected areas or by those we often deem as officials Citizen capacity does not justify divestment In events on the scale of disaster and catastrophe however those formal systems will fall short without involving informal responses in a meaningful way And in some cases lives will be lost Although safety and security are critical during a crisis there is value in the improvised citizen response to disaster Value in planning and improvisation Throughout history frustration with current policies has often led to changes in disaster management As historian Scott Knowles pointed out even the Federal Emergency Management Agency was established in 1979 in response to a concern that disaster response was too fragmented across agencies More recently a focus on the Incident Command System has permeated the rhetoric of American emergency management The Incident Command System which is a formalized management system of organizing resources and tasks is highly practical in incidents such as wildfires the type of hazard for which the Incident Command System was first developed And it was born out of the frustrations with incompatible systems across organizations But our research on the boat evacuation of 9/11 as well as evaluation by other social scientists points to how the Incident Command System does not deliver a completely uniform compatible system in more decentralized complex disasters This is precisely because improvised and emergent activity cant be fully structured ahead of time Instead the Incident Command System works quite well in emergencies where established responders are working with other established and expected responders The incident command system is basically a tool for agencies to manage themselves The word "incident" itself is telling: a confined or localized event Scholars have listed the characteristics of an event that could be managed in an incident command system: relatively small relatively readily understood established technical procedures and a lack of emergent activity The interpretation of the event rests in the hands of a few specialists But agencies managing themselves is not the same as managing a disaster A disaster entails different interpretations involving all the functions of communityfunctions that are never clearly understood and that are always contested Those functions arent commanded they are negotiated Boat operators on 9/11 did not neatly fit into an Incident Command System system nor could they have given the surprise of their involvement But the reason they were able to do so much was because no one forced them to Rather they were able to evolve and fit alongside formal systems in a thoughtful collaborative and deliberate way We are sure to eventually hear examples of risks unnecessarily taken or of errors in judgment throughout the vast armada of boat operators engaged in rescue operations in flooded Houston and surrounding communities just like there may have been isolated cases in flooded Louisiana communities last year But that shouldnt let us lose sight of the impressive coordination and collaboration that bolstered this response effort We must continue to learn the right lessons from disaster: that there is value to both planning and improvisation in disaster That although citizens might sometimes make mistakes they also enable the greatest of responses That successful disaster response in part depends on a willingness of formal responders to acknowledge the capacities of our citizenry be they mariners or farmers welders or educators or something else entirely So thank you to the Cajun Navy and to the rest of those in flood-affected communities drawing on their supplies equipment and know-how to help their neighbors to help complete strangers and to keep reminding us of the value of citizenry in disaster response This is an updated version of an article originally published on
