AG Curtis Hill Defending Indiana Law Prohibiting Abortion

first_img Attorney General Curtis Hill has written an op-ed defending an Indiana law prohibiting abortion based on an unborn child’s race, sex or disability.“There is no escaping the hard truth that permitting abortion of the disabled not only denies equal human worth but also gradually eliminates the disabled from society,” he writes. “Iceland has reached a nearly 100 percent elimination rate for babies with Down syndrome, and the United States and other developed countries are not far behind.”The op-ed appeared today at FoxNews.com.

Lunchboxes on the way out, new survey suggests

first_imgJust 5% of people take a homemade lunch to work, a new survey has revealed. Of more than 300 office workers asked by national health and safety law consultancy Protecting.co.uk, fewer than one in 20 workers brought their own lunch in to the office.Of other lunchtime options, 14% used the staff canteen, 13% went to a fast food establishment and 16% bought sandwiches from a shop. More than a fifth (21%) skip lunch altogether.The research found that factors contributing to fewer packed lunches in the office are strict rules around eating at desks as well as the increasing convenience of readymade sandwiches.Protecting.co.uk says this has caused people to turn to unhealthy snack foods, or miss out on a midday meal altogether.Mark Hall, spokesman for Protecting.co.uk, said: “It’s well known that worker productivity is linked to both decent breakfasts and lunches. It appears that thanks to so-called convenience foods, fewer employees are eating properly. The number of people who have a proper meal during their working day is depressingly low. And we’re shocked at the number of folk who go without something to eat at all.”The sight of the workplace lunchbox is becoming increasingly rare.”The results:5% brought in a packed lunch from home14% used the staff canteen13% went to a fast food establishment16% bought sandwiches from a shop9% have a pub lunch22% eat sweets and crisps from the vending machine21% don’t have lunch at alllast_img read more

Arts and Letters raises funds for mammograms

first_imgFor 14 years, the College of Arts and Letters has sponsored the Race to the Goal fundraiser to support breast cancer prevention during the month of October. Mo Marnocha, who organizes the campaign, said this October, the College of Arts and Letters raised more than $7,000 for mammograms, bringing the total amount of money raised over 14 years to more than $100,000. Marnocha said the money raised goes directly to pay for mammograms for people in St. Joseph’s County, and the funds collected this year will pay for approximately 45 of these tests.  “The facilitator of our fund is United Health Services, and they put that money into a special Notre Dame account,” she said. “When people come to them saying they need mammograms, if the person meets the criteria, the money will be used to pay for mammograms or diagnostic screenings.” Marnocha said the College of Arts and Letters has sponsored a variety of events including an online auction, soup-offs, chili-offs and raffles.  “We had a kind of flea market where people brought their goods and sold them in the Great Hall,” she said. “Also, one of the professors of music performed outside Crowley Hall.” Marnocha said the College also hosted a tailgate Oct. 19 before the USC game.  “It’s easy to raise money when there are people walking around campus on a home football game weekend,” she said. For every year of the fundraiser, the Dean’s Office has sold notecards with watercolors of various campus buildings, Marnocha said.   “That’s kind of our staple, we’ve always sold those,” she said. “Mark Roche, who was dean at the time [the campaign began] – his wife is an artist and a cancer survivor and she actually created those.” The majority of the donations for the fundraiser come from faculty and staff, Marnocha said.  “We’d love to have more students participate, but I know that our students on campus are already very involved in service,” she said.  Marnocha said she came up with the idea for the fundraiser 14 years ago when she read an article about breast cancer awareness.  “It was fairly new, 14 years ago, the whole pink ribbon thing,” she said. “So I went to the person I worked with at the time and suggested that as a team-builder we do a competition to raise money during the month of October for breast cancer awareness.”  Marnocha said in previous years the fundraiser was a competition among various offices in the College, but this year they decided to change this style.  “This year, we decided to do away with that and just do a total College effort,” she said. “A lot of people liked it that way, because there are people who will always work hard regardless if they are on a team or not.”  Although the fundraiser did not reach its goal of $10,000 for this year, Marnocha said she is satisfied with the outcome.  “We will ultimately help a lot of people with the money we’ve raised,” she said.
