Muir cut his target price to $4.50 (£2.85) on the idea that there is some remaining takeover appeal.In a statement, Blackstone said it was disappointed by opposition from Seneca Capital and the activist investor Carl Icahn to its final proposal of $5 a share. Blackstone originally offered to acquire Dynegy for $4.50 per share. Dynegy shares yesterday fell 17 cents, or 3.3 per cent, to $4.97.

You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here OpinionBy Elizabeth Englander and first published on theconversation.comAfter a shooter killed 17 people at a Florida high school, many have expressed frustration at the political hand-wringing over gun control and calls for prayer.As a parent, I understand the desire for practical responses to school shootings. I also absolutely believe the government should do more to prevent such incidents. But the gun control debate has proven so divisive and ineffective that I am weary of waiting for politicians to act.I study the kind of aggressive childhood behavior that often predates school shootings. That research suggests what communities and families can start doing today to better protect children. Here are 10 actions we can all take while the federal government drags its heels.What schools can doBecause educators observe students’ emotional and behavioral development daily, they are best positioned to detect troubled behaviors and intervene. In Los Angeles, for example, schools have successfully used outreach and training to identify potentially violent students before problems occur.1. Teach social and emotional skillsChildren learn social skills from everyday interactions with each other. Playtime teaches young people how to control their emotions, recognize others’ feelings and to negotiate. Neighborhood “kick the can” games, for example, require cooperation to have fun – all without adult supervision.Today, frequent social media use and a decrease in free play time has reduced children’s opportunities to learn these basic social skills.But social and emotional skills can – and should – be taught in school as a way to prevent student violence. Students with more fluent social skills connect better with others and may be more able to recognize troubled peers who need help.2. Hire more counselors and school resource officersDue to budget cuts, many schools have few or no trained school psychologists, social workers or adjustment counselors on staff. These mental health professionals are society’s first line of defense against troubled students – especially with the current increase in adolescent depression and anxiety.In my opinion, school resource officers – trained police officers who work with children – are also helpful for students. While untrained officers may pose a threat to students, well-trained school resource officers can connect with kids who have few other relationships, acting as a support system. They are also on hand to respond quickly if crime or violence erupts.Putting trained school resource officers and counselors in every school will cost money, but I believe it will save lives.3. Use technology to identify troubled studentsTechnology may challenge kids’ social development, but it can also be harnessed for good. Anonymous reporting systems – perhaps text-message based – can make it easier for parents and students to alert law enforcement and school counselors to kids who seem disconnected or disturbed. That enables early intervention.In Steamboat Springs, Colorado, one such tip appeared to prevent extreme violence in May 2017. Police took a young man who’d threatened to harm his peers into protective custody before he could act on his words.What communities can doCommunities also help raise children. With many eyes and ears, they can detect often smaller problems before young people grow into violence.4. Doctors should conduct standard mental health screeningsExtreme violence is almost always preceded by certain behavioral problems. These typically include a propensity toward aggression, a marked lack of social connectedness, indications of serious mental illness and a fascination with violence and guns.Doctors could detect these problems early on with a standardized screening at health checkups. If concerns arise, referrals to counseling or other mental health professionals might follow.Doctors are an underutilized community resource. Regular check-ups could help prevent violence. Myfuture.com, CC BY-ND5. Enlist social media companies in the effort to detect threatsMost young people today use social media to express their feelings and aspirations. In the case of school shooters, these posts are often violent. A single violent post is hardly a guarantee of homicidal acts, of course. But evidence strongly indicates that repeated expressions of this nature can be a sign of trouble.I would like to see companies like Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat create algorithms that identify repeated online threats and automatically alert local law enforcement.What parents can doParents and guardians are often the first to detect their child’s emotional struggles. Here are some tips for monitoring and promoting healthy emotional development at home.6. Think critically about your child’s social media useFrom virtual war games to cruel trolls, the internet is full of violence. The relationship between violent content and aggression hasn’t been consistent in research: Some studies see no relationship at all, while others find some correlation between violent video games and violent behavior.This mixed evidence suggests that online content affects children differently, so parents must assess how well their child handles it. If your daughter likes “Assassin’s Creed” but is gentle, socially successful and happy, the onscreen violence may not be strongly impacting her.But if your child is drawn to violent games and tends to be aggressive or troubled, discuss the situation with your pediatrician or school counselor.7. Consider what your child is missing out onIs your child sleeping properly? Do your kids socialize with other young people? These two behaviors are linked to mental health in children, and excessive screen time can reduce or diminish the quality of both.Make sure digital devices aren’t disrupting your kids’ sleep, and schedule play dates if your kids don’t make plans on their own.8. Assess your child’s relationshipsLike adults, children need confidants to feel invested in and connected with their community. The trusted person can be parent, a family member or a friend – just make sure someone’s playing that role.For children who struggle to make friends and build relationships, there are programs that can help them learn how.Children need confidants to feel connected to their communities. AP Photo/Gerald Herbert9. Fret productively about screen timeResearch shows that excessive screen time can damage kids’ brains. That’s alarming in part because parents can’t realistically keep kids entirely off devices.So rather than just fret over screen time, focus instead on how children can benefit from a variety of activities. Evidence shows that children who experience different pursuits over the course of their day – from sports and music to an after-school job – are happier and healthier for it.10. Talk with your childThis is both the easiest and hardest way to make sure your kids are doing OK. Children, especially teenagers, don’t always want to talk about how life is going. Ask anyway.My research shows that simply asking children about their friends, their technology use and their day is an important way to show you care. Even if they don’t respond, your interest demonstrates that you’re there for them.Try this one now. Ask your children what they’re thinking about the shooting in Florida and how they like their friends and school. Then listen.Dr. Elizabeth Kandel Englander graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with Phi Beta Kappa and High Honors and completed her doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Southern California as an All‑University Merit Fellow. After being awarded a National Institute of Mental Health Research Service Award to study at the University of New Hampshire, she started teaching in the State University system in Massachusetts and is now a professor of Psychology.

Webnews workers and supporters of their struggle to unionize rally at New York City Hall Park, Nov. 6.Staff reporters and editors at news websites DNAinfo and Gothamist celebrated a union victory after voting to join the Writers Guild of America, East on Oct. 26. But that victory was short-lived.Affiliated with the AFL-CIO, WGAE represents “writers in motion pictures, television, digital media, and broadcast news.” DNAinfo and Gothamist websites pulled millions of readers each month.The struggle originated in New York when 25 editorial staff voted to join WGAE, with only two dissenting votes. The vote was conducted under the supervision of the National Labor Relations Board. Then the real fight started.Owner Joe Ricketts shut down the websites on Nov. 2. As a result, 115 employees, including sales, office and technical workers in New York and at the sites’ sister publications in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, were laid off. Ricketts also removed the sites’ online content. That hindered the news staff’s ability to apply for future jobs because their portfolio items were inaccessible to potential employers.The callous moves on Boss Ricketts’ part were excused by the greedy capitalist talking point: “the bottom line.” Ricketts is the founder of TD Ameritrade, owns the Chicago Cubs and donated $1 million to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. He said in a public statement: “At the end of the day, a business is a business, and businesses need to be economically successful if they are to endure.” He unsuccessfully argued that “business wasn’t sufficient to continue.” (New York Times, Nov. 2)Gothamist journalist Scott Heins countered Ricketts’ claim: “The union drive did not kill Gothamist and DNAinfo. We did not even get a chance to make it to the bargaining table. Joe Ricketts made the decision to shut this down before we even got to present a list of demands.” (Labor Press)Despite his rhetoric, it is clear that Ricketts, who once wrote the editorial “Why I’m Against Unions at Businesses I Create,” wanted to punish his staff for organizing a union.In response, WGAE hosted the “Rally to Support DNAinfo and Gothamist” at New York’s City Hall Park on Nov. 6. At the gathering, more than 300 people joined the “fight against the billionaire war on journalism.”New York City Council’s Progressive Caucus and representatives from the New York Central Labor Council, Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA), Service Employees Local 32BJ and the National Writers Union, United Auto Workers Local 1981 showed solidarity with the fired media workers.WGAE wins severance agreementA victory came on Nov. 13 when the DNAinfo/Gothamist bargaining committee, led by WGAE, announced they had negotiated “an agreement that includes substantial gains beyond the initial offer made by management.” The terms of agreement for all the laid-off workers include what amounts to four months’ severance pay with full benefits. And the writers have the right to use their published work and to create new work based on that. There was no nondisparagement clause. (WGAE press release)After outrage and outcry, the writers’ articles have been archived online. WGAE’s Director of Communications Jason Gordon told Workers World, “We are having conversations about maintaining availability in the future. The union committee has made it clear that this is important, and I believe management understands.” Ricketts’ company also confirmed in writing that it “will not remain in business” and will not “create any neighborhood news media website for at least two years.”WGAE’s Executive Director Lowell Peterson stated in the release: “The reporters at DNAinfo and Gothamist stayed strong despite the vocal hostility of management (especially owner Joe Ricketts), and their solidarity proves the value of collective bargaining. They identified the real needs of the entire unit and achieved the best shutdown agreement possible under the circumstances.”Peterson added: “We have learned the importance of building a collective voice in digital media. And we have learned how important it is not to permit ideologically driven billionaires to control our media.” As the DNAinfo/Gothamist bargaining committee also noted in the release: “[W]e hope that our experience underscores the importance for writers and journalists everywhere to unite and stand up for their rights.”This struggle highlights how union busting conducted by the capitalist billionaire class is an assault on the right to organize, as well as on freedom of the press and free speech.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Harris, who is also correspondent in Sri Lanka for the geopolitical magazine Jane’s Intelligence Review, said he was leaving the country on 8 November on the advice of the British embassy.He has worked in Sri Lanka since last November and had routinely applied for an annual visa renewal on 30 September. The government did not respond and has since refused to explain its attitude.Harris told Reporters Without Borders he was being targeted for his critical reporting of peace negotiations between the government and the Tamil Tiger separatists, who he said may have pressured the government not to renew his visa.He was asked to speak publicly to opposition members of parliament after he wrote an article in Jane’s Intelligence Review in May. He was subsequently called an “agent of the British MI5 intelligence service” by minister Rajitha Senaratne.A week later, the government ordered a secret investigation of him, Harris said. Staff at his hotel were questioned, his room searched and his movements closely watched. For the past week, he had been intimidated and harassed by armed men.

USS Harry S. Truman completes sea trials Share this article View post tag: US Navy View post tag: USS Harry S. Truman U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) wrapped up five days of sea trials returning to its homeport at Naval Station Norfolk on July 25.This was Truman’s first time underway in nearly a year, as the ship underwent a planned incremental availability (PIA), which began last September, .“Sea trials is a five-day underway that pushes the limits of the ship; a true shakedown,” said Truman’s Executive Officer Capt. Cassidy Norman. “Everything we’ve done for the past year has been building up to this moment. I’m proud to finally have our ship back out on the waterfront.”Team Truman navigated through the sea trials checklist completing a number of evolutions, including small boat recoveries, testing aqueous film-forming foam sprinkler systems, high-speed turns, catapult testing and a simulated replenishment-at-sea alongside USNS Medgar Evers (T-AKE 13).Since the shipyard period, Truman Sailors have also overcome testing on their ability to perform in various areas such as damage control, deck seamanship and flight deck operations, which are viable, simulated scenarios that can occur while at sea.“This is our first time back out on the Atlantic since we pulled in to start the maintenance period a little under a year ago,” said Logistics Specialist 1st Class Kurt C. Trammell II. “We completed more than 300 hours of shipboard evolutions during the five days at sea. Our ship and her crew were pushed to their limits while we were out there, but we came out on top.” July 26, 2017 Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Harry S. Truman completes sea trials
