In a op-ed piece in the Washington Times, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson discusses how busing failed to address the lack of a racial utopia in America, but the Obama administration has recently implemented a new HUD rule that will “desegregate” housing.Earlier this month, HUD released its final rule on Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing. The rule was created to “desegregate” housing by withholding funds from communities that fail to demonstrate their projects “affirmatively further” fair housing.“As a former mayor, I know firsthand that strong communities are vital to the well-being and prosperity of families,” said HUD Secretary Julián Castro. “Unfortunately, too many Americans find their dreams limited by where they come from, and a ZIP code should never determine a child’s future. This important step will give local leaders the tools they need to provide all Americans with access to safe, affordable housing in communities that are rich with opportunity.”Carson adds that the Fair Housing Act and other laws have contributed the reduction of explicit discrimination in housing, but significant disparities in housing availability and quality persist.”The new rule would not only condition the grant of HUD funds to municipalities on building affordable housing as is the case today, but would require that such affordable housing be built primarily in wealthier neighborhoods with few current minority residents and that the new housing be aggressively marketed to minorities,” Carson noted.At the end of June, the Supreme Court ruled that the use of “disparate impact” claims can legally be brought about under the Fair Housing Act. While the Court ruled that disparate impact claims are cognizable under the Fair Housing Act, that ruling came with a caveat.”So the Court holds that there is a disparate impact claim under the FHA as a matter of statutory interpretation, but the Court cautions that remedial orders in disparate impact cases that impose racial targets or quotas could be unconstitutional,” Attorney Kevin Russell said on the SCOTUS blog. “. . .The Court emphasizes, however, that disparate impact liability should be imposed cautiously. To avoid constitutional problems, statistical disparity is not enough.”Oftentimes, these forced racial equality attempts by the government create larger issues instead of solving them, Carson says.”These government-engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse,” Carson concluded. “There are reasonable ways to use housing policy to enhance the opportunities available to lower-income citizens, but based on the history of failed socialist experiments in this country, entrusting the government to get it right can prove downright dangerous.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more


Program strives for inclusivity, participants say

first_imgA gender-inclusive option currently exists in two apartments on the floor. Participants live in rooms with students who identify with the same gender but share the apartment with students of all genders.Elizabeth Soriano, a junior majoring in communications who lives on the Rainbow Floor, said living in one of the gender-inclusive apartments has improved her USC housing experience.“It’s a really good experience so far because I’ve had previous experiences with housing…and compared to this housing experience, I feel like I’m in a better place,” Soriano said.Vigil said so far, residents of the gender-inclusive apartments have had positive experiences.“The rooms have not had any major conflicts as of now,” Vigil said.He went on to say that though the pilot program is new for USC, many universities already offer comparable housing options.“Other institutions have been doing something similar on their LGBT-themed floors for years,” Vigil said.Kevin Steen, the floor’s resident adviser, said the gender-inclusive apartments integrated smoothly into the rest of the building.“It has really added to the diversity of the floor and has really legitimized our movement toward gender-friendly housing at USC,” Steen said. “The Rainbow Floor is really a reflection of the community, and USC really leads the way in terms of movements and changing mentality.”Soriano said living in a gender-inclusive apartment and on the Rainbow Floor is preferable to past housing options.“It makes me feel much more comfortable to know that identity won’t be a factor with any conflicts that would rise up among my apartment mates,” Soriano said. “So far, it’s been great.”Other California universities, including Stanford, have made the shift to offer gender-neutral housing. Gender-neutral housing allows students to live in the same room, regardless of their gender identification, as opposed to gender-inclusive housing, which allows students of opposite sexes to live in the same apartment but not the same bedroom.“This transition toward gender-inclusive housing is a way for USC to make the Rainbow Floor more inclusive and create a safe environment,” Vigil said. “This was not a move to make the USC campus gender-neutral.”Vigil said in order to make the shift, the university would have to invest many resources to renovate the current traditional-style dorms and build gender-neutral bathrooms where each stall and shower is enclosed from floor to ceiling. He also said that the case for adopting gender-neutral housing must come from the students.“At Stanford, student government put petitions together and took surveys of the student body,” Vigil said. “In order to have gender-neutral housing at USC, students need to advocate for it. Just like every other issue on campus, students need to move it forward.”Though there has not been a huge push for gender-neutral housing so far, Steen said he feels encouraged by the response the program has received.“I’ve had members of the Greek community and people in Residential Education checking in with me to see how its going, so I feel like we have a lot of support,” Steen said.A wider-reaching program would come at a great benefit to students, Soriano said.“I feel like it would be great if it could be expanded, the Rainbow Floor included,” Soriano said. “I feel like a lot of other people can benefit more than I can currently.” A new pilot program that offers gender-inclusive housing on a LGBT-themed floor has been dubbed a success, according to Vincent Vigil, director of the LGBT Resource Center.According to Vigil, the program, which was approved last March, aims to make the LGBT-themed Rainbow Floor in Century Apartments more inclusive for transgender or gender-variant students.Diversity · The Rainbow Floor in Century Apartments offers gender-inclusive apartments for tenants of both sexes to create a comforting and accepting environment for residents and at USC as a whole. – Ricardo Galvez | Daily Trojanlast_img read more


Cavs’ Derrick Rose has bone spur in ankle, happy to be back

Rose left the Cavs on Nov. 22 and only returned this week, Friday, Dec. 8, 2017. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)INDIANAPOLIS — Derrick Rose is ready to start playing basketball in Cleveland again — once he’s healthy.The oft-injured point guard acknowledged Friday he has a bone spur in his left ankle that contributed to his decision to leave the team Nov. 22.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases He declined to say where he was, what he did or whether he pondered retirement. Rose even sidestepped a question about a potential target date for his return.“I’m taking it one day at a time. That’s the only thing you can do as far as your sanity,” he said. “You’ll go crazy if you try to overthink it or think you’re going to have a starting day and it’s not there.”One thing that has changed: Rose’s mindset.He thanked his Cleveland teammates and general manager Koby Altman for their support, which he said helped make the decision to come back easier. Now it’s just about getting healthy.“I was just figuring things out, thinking about this and that,” Rose said. “But I’m here for my team. I’m here to win. And that’s one of the reasons why I came back.”If Rose works his way back into form, it will only make the hottest team in the NBA better.The Cavs (18-7) already have four-time MVP LeBron James and perennial All-Star Kevin Love in the starting lineup and acquired one of the NBA’s best young point guards, Isaiah Thomas, in an offseason trade from Boston.Cleveland still has Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert, each of whom played a key role in the Cavs’ championship run two years ago.They also added Dwayne Wade and Jae Crowder during the offseason.Right now, though, the Cavs are banged up. SBP to Fiba: Louder in ’23 Rose’s absence prompted some to speculate on his future plans and when he returned to the team earlier this week, some contended that the top overall draft pick in 2008 was only coming back to cash in on a lucrative contract.“It’s not about that. I’ve saved up enough money,” Rose said. “If I wanted to leave, I would have left. Like I said, coming back here, starting with rehab that’s my first step. Keeping it simple and just giving my team support and then I’ll see what I see off the court.”The Central Division leaders and three-time defending Eastern Conference champs have won 13 in a row and can break the franchise record with a road win over the surprising Pacers (14-11) on Friday night.Cleveland won all six games while Rose was gone.But what exactly Rose did during his absence, or when he could be back in uniform, remains unclear.ADVERTISEMENT In his first public comments since ending an almost two-week hiatus, Rose told reporters that he had apologized to his teammates, was content with the Cavaliers and insisted he couldn’t wait to get back on the court.“I was just figuring things out, thinking about this and that,” Rose said before the Cavs’ morning shootaround in Indianapolis. “But I’m here for my team. I’m here to win. And that’s one of the reasons why I came back.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkBefore his departure, Rose had been slowed for weeks by an ankle injury.

No, no. Not at all,” Rose said when asked about his potential role. “I’ll be able to hoop. That’s all I want to do: Hoop and win. I don’t care about all the stuff that comes with it.

first_imgStephane Henchoz has told talkSPORT he is not surprised Rafael Benitez is having problems at Chelsea.And the former Liverpool defender claimed that Anfield stalwarts Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher “didn’t like him that much” when the Spaniard was in charge at the Merseyside club.Benitez guided Liverpool to their 2005 Champions League triumph while their manager and remains a popular figure among their fans.But he is deeply unpopular among Chelsea supporters and there have been reports he has fallen out with players at Stamford Bridge, which Benitez and Blues skipper John Terry both recently denied.And Henchoz said: “I think he’s a very good manager in that he knows a lot about football and the details.“The only problem for me is his man management and I’m not surprised things aren’t going so well for him at Chelsea.“I think he has some arrogance about him. The way he speaks to the players and the way he treats the players is not always the best.“Even if you are professional you still would like the manager to have a few words and speak a bit with you. Rafa Benitez only speaks to you when he needs you or wants something from you.“And I know that even Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, who spent a lot of time with him, didn’t like him that much.“When Chelsea signed him as manager, I was sure that things would not go smoothly.”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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Rajasthan defeat Baroda, win maiden Ranji title

first_imgGiant-killers Rajasthan notched up their maiden Ranji trophy title after defeating hosts Baroda on the basis of their first innings lead in the finals of the premier cricket tournament in Vadodara on Saturday.Resuming their second innings at 201 for four, Rajasthan amassed 341 in 129.1 overs and then reduced Baroda to 28 for four in 14 overs with Deepak Chahar wrecking havoc with three wickets in his seven overs for 15 runs.Earlier, skipper AL Menaria (101), who was dropped twice yesterday, added another 25 runs along with overnight batsman RR Parida (89) en route to his 149-ball century before being caught and bowled by Aditya Waghmode.Parida also couldn’t hang around too long and was trapped in front of the wicket by BA Bhatt.Murtuja Vahora then struck twice to remove Madhur Khatri (18) and Vivek Yadav (13). Deepak Chahar then became Swapnil Singh’s victim as Rajasthan slipped to 282 for nine.But last man and wicketkeeper Rohit Jhalani cracked a 80-ball 43 – studded with seven fours – to add 59 runs with Pankaj Singh (24) to take Rajasthan to 341 in the second innings.Chahar and Pankaj Singh then spitted venom and mowed down the top order at the Moti Bagh Stadium here.The first wicket to fall was KH Devdhar (5) when he failed to negotiate Chahar’s short quick delivery and hooked it in the air as Saxena took the catch at square leg.Two balls later, Pankaj scalped opener JA Kolsawala (13). His good length delivery angled across as going for a drive, Kolsawala edged it to wicketkeeper Rohit Jhalani as Baroda slumped to 18 for two.advertisementIn the sixth over, Chahar claimed his second wicket removing Swapnil Singh. His delivery squared up Swapnil and took his blade’s outside edge to Chopra at second slip.Chahar struck again, dismissing Waghmode to claim his third wicket. He induced a leading edge off the batsman and completed an easy catch as Baroda were reduced to 24 for 4.Later, Rajasthan skipper Hrishikesh Kanitkar attributed the victory to the team effort.”I can’t describe this feeling, it is an honour to play with these guys and it is satisfying that we have done it as a team, it is a team effort, that has been strength this season,” he said.- With PTI inputslast_img read more


Narsingh Yadav questions Sushil Kumar’s appointment as national observer

first_imgSuspended wrestler Narsingh Yadav has objected to Sushil Kumar’s appointment as a national observer, raising conflict of interest allegations, in a letter to the Sports Ministry.Narsingh last week sent a letter to the Sports Ministry, raising questions on how Sushil could become a national observer, when he is involved with the grooming of wrestlers at the Chhatrasal Stadium’s akhada which is run by his father-in-law Satpal.”Narsingh has written a letter to the Sports Ministry, raising objection on Sushil being a national observer. According to Narsingh, Sushil would favour his students from Chhatrasal as a national observer,” a top Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) official in the know of things told PTI.”Narsingh has claimed that being a national observer while training kids in his akhada is a conflict of interest.”Sushil, India’s double Olympic medallist, is among 14 Olympians appointed by the Sports Minister as national observers for their respective disciplines earlier this year.Narsingh also questioned how Sushil has been appointed observer despite allegations of sabotage levelled against him before Rio Olympics. Narsingh has been suspended on charges of doping for four years.”Narsingh has also apparently written about his doubts over Sushil’s alleged sabotage attempt in spiking Narsingh’s food and drinks before the Olympics and the resultant four-year suspension on him from wrestling,” the official claimed.When Sushil asked about Narsingh’s letter, the 34-year-old said: “That is up to him to write to anyone he feels like, raising whatever objection. I have no hard feelings for anyone or about anything.advertisement”Moreover I do not understand how it is conflict of interest. I am just a national observer, whose job is to monitor the sport of wrestling and give feedback to build a good squad for future Olympics,” Sushil said.Last year, in the run up to the Rio Olympics, Narsingh and Sushil were involved in a bitter court battle, which was followed by a dope scandal that resulted in the eventual suspension of the former.It all started with a tussle for an Olympic berth in the men’s 74kg freestyle category after the WFI reneged on its promise of holding a trial to decide who among Sushil and Narsingh would represent India in the Rio Games.In the process, Sushil felt short-changed and even took the legal recourse but could not get a showdown with Narsingh as had been promised to him by the federation after an injury prevented him from competing in the Olympic qualifiers.Narsingh was picked by the WFI on the basis of him bagging the 74kg Olympic quota berth with a World Championships bronze, while Sushil’s demands for a trial were rejected by both the Federation as well as the Delhi High Court after a lengthy legal battle.However, Narsingh’s triumph was short-lived as he failed a dope test conducted by National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) barely 10 days before the start of the Rio Games.Although NADA later gave him the clean chit, a subsequent hearing by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) barred Narsingh from participating in the Olympics and also handed him a suspension.last_img read more
