Education : English Language Learner's Fun With Science Camp
Posted by admin on 2009/7/29 1:00:00 (1678 reads)

July 27-31 9:00am-4:00pm

The English Language Learner's Fun With Science Camp is a weeklong camp at Northern Kentucky University dedicated to the exposure and education of young minds to the natural sciences. The camp is organized by the Center for Integrative Natural Science and Mathematics (CINSAM), located on campus, and coordinated by Dr. Miriam Steinitz Kannan, a professor of the Biological Sciences at NKU, and Mr. Leo Calderon, Director of Latino Student Affairs at the university.

The camp is a comprehensive, week-long event with a goal of exposing underrepresented minorities to all fields of science, and at the same time, demonstrating how much fun science can be! The experience involves such activities as students isolating their own DNA from cheek cells and making them into necklaces, studying the awesome forces of nature such as magnetism and electricity, and even collecting fish and other wildlife by "electrofishing" at a nearby stream. It also involves a cruise on a floating classroom on the Ohio River! The cost is free to students and includes lunch plus all materials needed for activities.

The camp was first offered in the summer of 2004 with a participation of twelve students. Last year, twenty-four students ranging from eleven years of age to eighteen years took part in the Fun With Science Camp. The participants of last year's camp were quite diverse and included students from Withrow International High School, the Academy of Multilingual Immersion Studies, and Our Lady of Grace. Nine faculty members, as well as several NKU students and others from the surrounding community, helped put the camp together this year.

The goal is not only for all of our students to expand their knowledge of the natural sciences, but also for them to come to realize that science can indeed be exciting and fun!

Every day, they will be updating a blog with a description of the activities of the day, plus lots of pictures. Parents and students alike are welcome to check back in the evenings for updates on the camp!

Community : LULAC Ohio Calls on the U.S. Department of Justice to Investigate Hate Crime Case in Mt. Vernon, Ohio
Posted by admin on 2009/7/10 14:40:00 (1912 reads)


Cincinnati—The League of United Latin American Citizens of Ohio strongly requests an independent investigation by the U.S Department of Justice into the May 30, 2008 hate crime against the Hispanic minor Robert Cantu in Mount Vernon, Ohio.  Robert, a Hispanic minor, was attacked by five individuals and placed in a noose around his neck while ethnic slurs were used.  Over 1 year after the crime was reported the Prosecutors Office charged only one individual with aggravated menacing (a first-degree misdemeanor when committed by an adult) and ethnic intimidation (a fifth-degree felony when committed by an adult).  Surprisingly, the prosecutor only recommended 30 days in jail out of the possible maximum jail time of six months, Judge Ronk sentenced the assailant to only 10 days and a $100 fine plus court costs. 

LULAC finds both the crime and the sentence against the assailant completely appalling and seeks for the DOJ to take the following steps to send a strong message against those who commit Hate Crimes:

•    Conduct an independent investigation into the Cantu Case
•    Prosecute all parties involved in the noose incident
•    Investigate selective prosecution and police practices unfavorable toward minorities

To further expose this case and the growing trend in Hate Crimes committed in Ohio, LULAC Ohio and several organizations mentioned below will hold a Vigil for Justice in Mount Vernon, Ohio on July 24th in the city’s Public Square at 12pm.  The event will host hundreds of supporters from across the state and feature prominent community leaders and victims of hate crimes.
