Of Asphyxiation, Belts, and Pharaonic Rituals

Shine a light on sexual abuse in schools

abuse accountability crime education misconduct pedophilia rape

There’s an old adage that says you can’t manage what you don’t measure.

That’s why it’s hard to believe that no one has thought to tally the number of sexual assaults across the country perpetrated on students by employees of kindergarten to Grade 12 schools.

After all, we’re talking here about the safety and mental well-being of children.

But now a national inventory has been done for the first time by the Canadian Centre for Child Protection. And its findings point to the urgent need for mandatory public reporting of disciplinary actions by the bodies that license teachers across the country as a first step to stopping predatory behaviour.

Right now, only three teacher licensing bodies — those in Ontario, British Columbia and Saskatchewan — make disciplinary decisions public. In other provinces, researchers compiling the report had to rely on news stories and criminal cases as their only sources of information.

That’s serves the interest of no one but guilty teachers, who without public scrutiny can fly under the radar, unnoticed and often unpunished. It also means the public and politicians are blind to the dangers that lurk in schools.  (more...)

Yanis Varoufakis: Ireland a tax haven ‘free-riding’ on Europe

offshore tax evasion money laundering accountability transparency business corruption economy

Ireland is a tax haven “free-riding” on the rest of Europe, and remains deeply divided since the crash, former Greek finance minister and author Yanis Varoufakis has claimed.

Speaking at an event in Munich hosted by the Ifo institute for economic research, Mr Varoufakis said the euro zone was unsustainable and would impoverish peripheral countries such as Greece. He said the latest political and economic turbulence in Italy highlighted as much.

Asked if Ireland’s recent economic turnaround did not run counter to his narrative of euro zone disintegration, he said: “Ireland is a divided society. There are two Irelands. There is the real Ireland which remains depressed.

“If you look at those who are not connected to the offshore economy… to the Facebooks and the Apples and so on… the Irish who remain in old Ireland they remain just as badly off as they were 10 years ago,” he said. “And the discontent is massive.  (more...)

Why Nestle is one of the most hated companies in the world

fascism corporations business multinationals corruption science Nestle
Child labor, unethical promotion, manipulating uneducated mothers, pollution, price fixing and mislabeling – those are not words you want to see associated with your company. Nestle is the world’s largest foodstuff company, and it has a history that would make even hardcore industrialists shiver. We’re gonna look at why Nestle has such a bad reputation and whether or not it deserves it.

People love to hate, and they really love to hate on big companies – whether or not they have a reason to. I especially dislike it when the latter happens. Companies (big companies included) are the very backbone of our economy, and they often get a bad rep for little or no reason. But sometimes there is a reason, or as in this case, several solid reasons, as we’ll see below. Which brings me to the next point: why are we writing this article? ZME Science is a science website (crazy, right?), and this is not strictly science, at least not in the way our regular articles are. But we also write about environmental issues, especially when they affect many of us, and especially when we can make a difference.

Nestle is a Swiss multinational food and beverage company. According to Wikipedia, their products include baby food, bottled water, breakfast cereals, coffee and tea, confectionery, dairy products, ice cream, frozen food, pet foods, and snacks. Twenty-nine of their brands have sales of over $1 billion a year and have over 8,000 brands. They have 447 factories across 194 countries and employ around 333,000 people. They truly are what you would call a giant. They’re also considered to be one of the best employers in Europe with six LEED certifications and sponsor numerous activities and sustainable projects. Looking at only these stats, it would seem that Nestle is one of the “good guys”… but then why are they so hated? Let’s take it step by step.  (more...)

One of the mysteries of my youth is the career trajectory of my American college don. After being thrown out of seminary, he graduated from Columbia University as an English major. He was a Peace Corps volunteer and was thrown out of a Central American country for suspicion of being a CIA agent. At my college, he schmoozed among a milieu of fascists, Freemasons, and Salon Marxists. I had a conversation with the dean about what seemed to me very inappropriate behavior for a don at a Canadian university. Soon afterward, his academic career terminated and he re-emerged as an executive-level manager at Nestle Canada. What kind of connections did he have to land a job like that, straight out of academia? How do all these data points connect? Does any of this connect to the college's most famous dead socialite, Honey Sherman?

Greater transparency, accountability urged after researchers delve into sexual abuse by school employees

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection is calling for more transparency after a new report found school employees were responsible for hundreds of alleged sexual offences involving students.

“This causes a lot of damage to children when this misuse of a relationship occurs, and it can be profound,” Noni Classen, the centre’s director of education said Thursday.

“This can ruin children’s lives.”

Researchers found 750 cases of sexual offences involving at least 1,272 children were perpetrated by employees or former employees. The vast majority — 86 per cent — were certified teachers, but other staff such as educational assistants and custodians were also charged.

Most of the victims were in middle school and high school. They were primarily girls while the alleged offenders were largely men.

“It really was something where you needed to sit back and take a moment and say, ‘OK we really need to look at this. We need to question what’s being done. This is something where there can be harm to children’,” Classen said.

Researchers at the centre started to collect and analyze data following Project Spade, an international police investigation into child pornography which led to more than 400 arrests around the world. Of the 100 people arrested in Canada, Classen said 40 were teachers.

Researchers wanted to understand the scope of the problem so that they could see how to prevent future abuse.

However, they quickly ran into roadblocks. Ontario, British Columbia and Saskatchewan are the only provinces where the organizations responsible for certifying teachers make disciplinary decisions public.  (more...)

Another day, another Nazi: This Is the Man Who Ran Canada’s Biggest Neo-Nazi Podcast

nazi fascism internet youth politics hate racism white supremacy xenophobia anti-semitism islamophobia

Before he was a neo-Nazi, Clayton Sanford was a cosplayer.

It was May 2008 and the occasion was Anime North, one of the largest annual anime gatherings in North America. Thousands of people descended on Toronto, dressed as Japanese cartoon and gaming characters. Sanford went as Roy, a character from Nintendo’s Fire Emblem series, complete with sky-blue armour, gold-handled sword, and a plume of striking red hair.

It was Sanford’s first cosplaying event. In photos he strikes various warrior poses, usually unsmiling and faux fierce-looking with a thick red wig and gold lamé flecking his costume. “I’m always serious. Because Roy is hardcore,” he wrote as a caption to one of these pictures.

A decade later, the now 31-year-old Sanford was deeply involved in another (decidedly less colourful) world, this one populated by proud racists who decry immigration, denigrate minorities, and espouse mass deportation and occasionally genocide in an effort to make Canada white again.

As “Axe In The Deep,” Sanford hosted This Hour Has 88 Minutes, one of the most popular and enduring white nationalist podcasts in the country. From September 2016 until mid-May 2018, when it went dark following inquiries from VICE, 88 Minutes was a gleefully profane, forever hateful take on the news of the week.  (more...)
