Photo/Hannah Wilder.[Episcopal News Service — Indianapolis] Episcopal Camps and Conference Centers July 8 presented Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and her husband, Richard Schori, with Hero of Camping Ministry awards for their contributions to the Episcopal camping world.Not only are they outdoor enthusiasts, but Jefferts Schori and Schori also support ECCC’s mission to sustain and enhance the ministry of all camps and conference centers of the Episcopal Church.Amidst Indianapolis Day festivities in Victory Field, which included samba dancing and carnival games, Jefferts Schori and Schori both received the triennial award, which honors those who have supported the ministry of Episcopal Camps and Conference Centers through personal involvement. Schori is a former board member and Jefferts Schori was the first presiding bishop to be the keynote speaker at ECCC’s annual conference in Mississippi in 2009. She has been supportive of ECCC’s mission throughout her episcopate, and has visited many camps and conference centers.Waycross Board of Directors Chair Natalie Weir and Peg Smith, chief executive officer of the American Camp Association, presented Schori and Jefferts Schori with the glass, rock-like awards.Weir’s 40-year involvement in Waycross, the camp and conference center in the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis, has shown her the “transformative impact that a community of unconditional love, centered in the beauty of creation has in people’s lives,” she said. She recognized the presiding bishop for understanding “the formational role that camps and conference centers play in the spiritual formation and leadership development of youth, young adults, and the young at heart throughout the church and the world.”In honor of the award ceremony, hundreds turned out in T-shirts from their own Episcopal camps and conference centers.“As we look around the stadium at all the folks who are wearing their camp or conference center T-shirt, we can see that campers are leaders in the church, and the work we are doing at our camps and conference centers really is changing the world,” said Weir.“We also understand that spending time in God’s creation, even on a very hot day like today, has a profound impact on our ability to understand and address the complex issues we face daily in our lives as we do the work God has given us to do, in our workplaces, our communities and the world.”In presenting the award to Schori, Weir said, “you have left your handprint on the hearts of many through your efforts to ensure no Episcopalians are left inside.” A former college athlete, Schori is a highly skilled mountain climber and has made a solo, un-roped ascent of the Matterhorn, climbed Mt. McKinley and other lofty peaks.Weir recognized the presiding bishop for her efforts in placing a priority on leadership development for youth and young adults alike. A trained oceanographer, the presiding bishop has always displayed her love of the outdoors, and respect for God’s creation. The award given to the presiding bishop read, “in recognition of her vision and lifelong commitment as educator, priest, bishop and presiding bishop to the training of generations of young leaders who are transforming the world.”The Hero of Camping Ministry Award is the brainchild of the ECCC board of directors and Executive Director Canon Peter Bergstrom. In an address to the House of Bishops July 7, Bergstrom said, “summer camp is more important today than ever, as so many children spend most of their waking hours indoors in front of one screen or another. Direct connection to nature, to God’s creation, is important in so many ways, as is really living together with other children from a variety of ethnicities and economic backgrounds.”Canon Bergstrom said that Schori and Jefferts Schori understand that summer camp, combined with flourishing parish youth groups, provide vital experiences that form loving and caring Christians and life-long Episcopalians.“It is a pleasure to honor them,” said Bergstrom. “We’re grateful for leaders who understand the connection between Episcopal camps and conference centers and the future of our church.”During General Convention in 2009, ECCC honored the Rt. Rev. M. Thomas Shaw, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, with the Hero of Camping Ministry Award.The House of Bishops recognized Canon Bergstrom July 7 for his 40 years of service to Camp Stevens, the Episcopal camp in the Diocese of Los Angeles and San Diego. He retires this summer from his responsibilities as executive director, but will continue his leadership of ECCC.Smith, who is an executive at the American Camp Association, a national organization representing more than 7,000 individual members and more than 2,400 ACA-Accredited® camps, spoke about the role that leaders in the faith community have, and their responsibility to enrich lives through the camp experience. She noted the connection between spirituality and nature, saying, “many people have their first encounter with spirituality in the outdoors so when I see these two things together – spirituality and nature – it gives me hope.”She recognized Schori and Jefferts Schori for their lifetime achievement award and then addressed the audience: “You are all heroes. You have influence as leaders of the church. Use it well.”— Hannah Wilder is communcations director for the Diocese of San Diego.

The original cedar tree on the site plays a very important for the layout of the house, so that there is a view of the tree from anywhere in the house. Also, the shape of the house responds to the impact of climate elements of the place: the central double height module acts as a lung with cross ventilation, and the west glass facade works for natural lighting.Save this picture!© Sergio PucciSeveral considerations were taken into account so that the house had the least possible environmental impact, both in design and materials, as well as in systems for energy conservation. For example this was considered in the choice of materials, so that they are renewable, reusable or recyclable in addition to durable and low maintenance. Wood from the cedar tree was used in the stairs, and some other details of furniture in the house. The deck consists of certified wood from renewable sources mixed with recycled plastic, concrete floors and bamboo, among others. Additionally, the house has rainwater collection systems for toilets and irrigation, it is planned for solar panels, container doors were reused for most doors of the project, the hot water is solar-heated, cross ventilation is enough so that the home does not require air conditioning, and natural lighting makes virtually no electric lights necessary during the day.Save this picture!© Sergio PucciSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Sergio PucciThe use of containers in the construction gives a rich contrast to the design, in addition to reducing the environmental impact, which means the reuse of an existing element, generating less CO2 emissions than the cement production and transportation from trucking all those traditional materials to the site, not to mention a less invasiveland movement. It is estimated that the construction time is reduced by 20% and the total cost about 20%.Save this picture!© Sergio PucciProject gallerySee allShow lessRT Residence / Jacobsen ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsExplore the Land of the Upright People in Grant Smith’s “Upright and Educated”Event Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/588779/incubo-house-maria-jose-trejos Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/588779/incubo-house-maria-jose-trejos Clipboard ArchDaily Year: 2013 Save this picture!© Sergio Pucci+ 32 Share CopyHouses•Escazu, Costa Rica “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMaría José TrejosOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEscazuCosta RicaPublished on January 19, 2015Cite: “Incubo House / María José Trejos” [Casa Incubo / María José Trejos] 19 Jan 2015.

Jim RicksJames Frederick Ricks came from rusty, dusty Lackawanna, N.Y., once a steel town near Buffalo. He became a New Yorker at 16, employed by Billboard Publications in that favorite entry job of writers in all media — the mailroom. Like fictional mailroom workers, he did not remain there long, and ultimately became head of the Copy Center, the locale of many stories he told.Once someone phoned him: ”Jim, I’m trying to print this damn report and they’re on my back and the machine is dead. Ya gotta help me!” Jim solved this terrible emergency by plugging the machine into the outlet.The problems were not usually so simple. It was a pressure job, the phone constantly ringing with frantic calls for help. All through many organizational changes and administrative turnovers, the company hung onto Jim to meet emergencies and solve their problems.He always found a way to defend the workers in his department. If someone was not very skilled, he would train and protect them.So many were nourished by his great-hearted generosity. His own and other children had a person to admire and emulate, who dealt with them with humor and understanding.One hot summer night he took his kids, Ellen and Stacey, to a poetry slam in the Village. When they left at 1:30 in the morning and got in the car to go home, the battery was dead. It was so hot, so late, so far from home, and he had to get up for work the next day. Telling the story, Jim smiled and said, “We just found a cab and went home.” How cool was that: a hard-working, African-American father took his children to a poetry slam, of all things. For most, finding a dead car late at night would have been a catastrophe. For Jim, it just made the evening more of an adventure.For several years, he worked every week serving food and respect in a soup kitchen. He was the organizer and leader of his tenants association, in combat with the owners for decent conditions in the building.Jim’s life template came from his parents, who in addition to their own kids adopted two they had served as foster parents. When Jim’s mother was nearing death, she made him promise never to abandon his adopted brother and sister, and he never did.The printed program of a memorial organized by his family told of another side of Jim: “He provided years of dedicated service to the Workers World newspaper, which addresses various issues in the United States and around the world.” He was a longtime member of the Workers World supporter program.A thousand Thursdays, Jim came after work to help mail this newspaper. He always wore headphones behind his ears, thus preserving his eardrums, and was never prevented from carrying on conversations.One Thursday, an elderly woman admired a shirt Jim was wearing. “When you get through with that shirt, would you give it to me?” He nodded yes. A few minutes later, he reappeared in a white tee and handed her his shirt, factory-folded. This at one time would have been called a happening.Jim was in the Workers World loft when needed, and out on the streets when needed, so many times, so many ways. One comrade recalled an event from the summer of 1995, when it seemed the state would succeed in murdering Mumia Abu-Jamal. “Our Party went all out to save his life. Jim volunteered to paste up Harlem’s 125th Street. As we started our work, I saw two men in their 70s watching us. Jim’s strong arm never tired during the three hours it took to plaster the most famous street in Black America. When we got back to where we had started, Jim and I shook hands. Across the street, I saw the same two men. They were smiling at us. Maybe they were thinking that’s the way it should be.” A Black man and a white man working together for a just cause.This world, our beautiful planet threatened with death by capitalism, needs more lovers of life and soldiers for socialism like Jim Ricks. There will be no pretentious corporate or college building bearing his name. His living monument will stand as long as there are people left to tell his stories. He will be remembered with love and admiration by all who shared in the many parts of his life.Rosemary Neidenberg and Steve Millies collaborated on this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Marvin WilsonThe state of Texas legally lynched Marvin Wilson on the evening of Aug. 7.Houston, Aug. 7 — Marvin Wilson was often teased as a child in Beaumont, Texas, for being illiterate. In a recent interview on death row, Wilson said, “People, when they see that you is stupid, dumb and ignorant, they rather make fun of it and laugh about it, make you the laugh of the town, rather than say man needs some help. I spent my life fighting trying to defend my honor rather than trying to learn.” (Houston Chronicle, Aug. 7)Today at 6 p.m., Texas plans to strap 54-year-old Wilson to a gurney and inject him with a lethal dose of Pentobarbital until he is pronounced dead.Texas will legally lynch this African-American man who was in special education during his school years; failed several grades; was “socially promoted” to the next grade level until he dropped out in the 10th grade; and sucked his thumb well into adulthood. According to Texas, he is not mentally disabled enough to be exempt from execution.According to the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, “Intellectual disability is characterized by significant limitations both in intellectual functioning and in adaptive behavior, which covers many everyday social and practical skills. … One criterion to measure intellectual functioning is an IQ test. Generally, an IQ test score of around 70 or as high as 75 indicates a limitation in intellectual functioning.”Marvin Wilson scored a 61 on the standard Wechsler IQ test, a score well below the legal marker for mental disability.In 2002, the Supreme Court established a national consensus against executing people with mental disabilities when it ruled in Atkins v. Virginia that “the mentally retarded should be categorically excluded from execution.” The court said that states must use professional standards to determine to whom this would apply.Why is Marvin Wilson beinglegally lynched?So why is Wilson’s execution being allowed to proceed by Texas state and federal courts, as well as by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit?After the 2002 decision, Texas developed its own standards for mentally disability, ignoring the specifications in the Atkins case. Rather than rely on scientific, clinical standards approved by the AAIDD, Texas uses seven criteria called “Briseño factors” that it devised on its own and that are not used by any other state.These nonclinical factors, which are named after another Texas death-row case, are supposed to prove whether a defendant presents a “level and degree of mental retardation at which a consensus of Texas citizens would agree that a person should be exempted from the death penalty.” The Nation reports, “As an example, the Briseño court cited the fictitious character of Lennie Small, the mentally impaired migrant worker from John Steinbeck’s novel, ‘Of Mice and Men.’ (‘Most Texas citizens might agree that Steinbeck’s Lennie should, by virtue of his lack of reasoning ability and adaptive skills, be exempt’ from execution, the court concluded.)” (Aug. 6)The AAIDD says that Texas’ “impressionistic ‘test’ directs fact-finders to use ‘factors’ that are based on false stereotypes about mental retardation that effectively exclude all but the most severely incapacitated.” (The Guardian [Britain], Aug. 5)According to Wilson’s lead attorney, University of Maryland law professor Lee Kovarsky, “They said that Marvin was not retarded because he was able to work construction and get married and have a child. They said he lied in his own self interest because he denied his own guilt. How far outside scientific consensus can you go?” (TheGrio.com, Aug. 1)Kovarsky wrote in an appeal presented to the Supreme Court that if Texas proceeds with Wilson’s scheduled execution, he “will own the grisly distinction” of becoming the lowest-IQ Texas prisoner put to death despite the Atkins v. Virginia ruling.How can Texas allow this executionto take place?According to a New York Times editorial, “The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals in a 2004 ruling perversely read [the Atkins] directive to mean that the state could devise its own restricted test for retardation. It bluntly rejected the Supreme Court’s ‘categorical rule making such offenders ineligible for the death penalty.’ It defiantly refused to recognize ‘a “mental retardation” bright-line exemption’ even for those who ‘legitimately qualify’ as mentally retarded for other purposes.” (Aug. 3)The Times noted that the Texas court’s 2004 ruling has been the basis for the rejection of mental disability claims in at least 10 other death penalty cases.“Apparently you have to be pretty dumb in Texas not to be considered normal,” Casey Davis, a 91-year-old member of the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement and long-time educator and school psychologist, told Workers World. Another activist, Joanne Gavin, said, “Texas should stop ALL executions. Minus that, it must not be allowed to [disregard] the law. The Supreme Court must step in or else its Atkins ruling is not worth the paper it is printed on.”According to reporter Ed Pilkington writing in the Guardian, Wilson’s case and the case of Warren Hill — whose execution in Georgia was called off barely 90 minutes before it was to occur last month — show that the Supreme Court has a growing problem on its hands as states act in “close to open defiance of the will of the highest judicial panel in the land in relation to the execution of people with learning difficulties.” (Aug. 5)Activists will be at Huntsville death row, where Wilson sits imprisoned, to press the Supreme Court for justice today. Since Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who is responsible for 244 of Texas’ 483 executions, historically opts for cruel and unusual punishment, it is now up to the Supreme Court to determine if Wilson’s life will be spared.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Audio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/tar-spot-pioneer-wrap.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Tar spot continued its spread in 2020, robbing yield from many Indiana corn fields. Indiana agronomist Brian Early with Pioneer says it’s imperative that farmers plan this winter to get ahead of tar spot next season, and it starts with your variety selection.Brian Early“Our varieties, as well as every variety across the country, has a different tolerance of these leaf diseases. So, it’s important when you sit down and plan in 2021, or right now throughout the winter, that you keep that in mind on the seed side to look at those tolerances.”Early also recommends a fungicide to help with tar spot, and he says it should used proactively instead of reactively.“Tar spot is unique in that it gets infection in the plant and it kind of lays dormant inside the plant. So, by the time you start to see those little black pustules come to the surface, the tar spot is well embedded in there. So, to manage it effectively, you’ve really got to have that proactive, curative application to get ahead of that disease.”Early recommends applying Aproach Prima fungicide to corn between the tassel and blister stage for the best results. That should also help fend off other disease concerns.“When we had to start looking at variety tolerances and fungicides to manage tar spot, naturally we’re picking up good control on things like northern corn leaf blight and grey leaf spot as well. So, using Aproach Prima and picking our best varieties tolerant to tar spot has really paid off for us.”Early adds that you can rely on your Pioneer sales representative to help you plan.“We know the ins and outs of the tolerances of varieties, how they work in conjunction with the fungicides, timings and rates and such, to really help fine tune that plan before we get going with the planters. In addition to that, if you’re a self-scouter, we offer a really nice library of images on pioneer.com/agronomy that you can get online and look at all those as well.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Plan Ahead to Deal With Tar Spot in 2021 By Eric Pfeiffer – Dec 15, 2020 SHARE Previous articleNew Midwest Grazing Exchange Website Aims to Connect Livestock Farmers With LandownersNext articleDr. Seth Meyer to Return to USDA to Serve as Chief Economist Eric Pfeiffer Plan Ahead to Deal With Tar Spot in 2021 SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter

Only seven days before the start of the fall semester, Salsa Limón announced the closing of its campus location for good.Salsa Limon’s “Universidad” home resided at 3501 S. University Drive. This strip has housed many campus favorites, including Doc’s Records, Dutch’s Hamburgers, The University Pub, Buffalo Brothers and Pizza Snob.The Fort Worth taco joint announced its departure on its Facebook page.TCU360 reported that there is a seafood restaurant taking its place on University Drive.Salsa Limón will be relocating to its new location, Maggie, that is near Southside on the popular W. Magnolia Avenue. “I think they’ll do great,” said David Shaw of Shaw’s Burgers and The Lazy Moose on Magnolia Ave. “There’s a great market over here. I’m confident that they’ll still have TCU students here. Exciting things are happening on this street.”This isn’t the first relocation Salsa Limón has experienced in the past few years. In 2016, the “Museo” location (929 University Drive) closed as well. This was its second location where the goal was a “brick and mortar” feel. Rather than relocating and leaving the original building, Salsa Limón decided to relocate the building itself. The Museo building migrated 2.7 miles west and is now the “Distrito” location on White Settlement Road.Salsa Limón has come a long way since its first location at La Gran Plaza in 2006 and its first food truck in 2010.

Therefore, all the parents having visitation rights can now avail electronic visitations via Video Calls etc. instead of Physical Visitations during this period. The order was passed in a PIL filed by Dr. Tanuj Dhawan, Assistant Professor with University of Delhi, who raised concerns regarding the Mental Health of Children due to impossibility of maintaining contact with their parents having due visitation rights. “Many couples who are either separated or divorced are having Visitation Rights for their children from court but due to movement restrictions they are unable to exercise same which would cause serious concerns over the mental well being of the child concerned,” Dr. Dhawan told the court. He had also submitted that “The issue of mental health amid lockdown is amongst the important aspects in this unprecedented situation due to this many NGOs and Mental Health institutions have been acting round the clock, needless to say the Psychological changes which would be observed during and post pandemic period amongst people since this scenario has created lot of anxiety and depression in the society, especially children.” Based on his representation, the Supreme Court agreed to convert Physical Visitations into Electronic visitations during these times. A bench of Justice NV Ramana, Justice SK Kaul and Justice BR Gavai ordered, “The grievance of the petitioner is that because of lockdown, the children are unable to interact with their parents even though they have visitation rights for the purpose. If they have visitation rights, we suggest that electronic contact instead of physical visits can be substituted in these times. The parties can arrive at a mutually acceptable arrangements in this behalf. If there is an aggrieved party, the same can approach the Family Court.” The matter was accordingly disposed of.

“Whatever the tensions were before, we have successfully negotiated a settlement agreement — something that is fair and equitable to both sides, and that both sides agreed to,” Engler said in the statement. “We are now committed to continuing our efforts to strengthen sexual misconduct prevention on and off campus and to respond promptly to and appropriately if prevention fails.” Morgan McCaul, another survivor of Nassar and one of many to speak publicly at his sentencing hearing, called on the public to “occupy” the Board of Trustees meeting on June 22 in order to demand Engler’s resignation. Nassar, who was a faculty member at MSU and served as the longtime doctor to the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team, was sentenced in January to up to 175 years in prison in connection with the treatment of several victims. Nassar faced charges on seven counts of criminal sexual misconduct in the first degree, to which he pleaded guilty to in November. Among the public figures Denhollander applauded for calling on Engler to resign were Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, Michigan Sen. Gary Peters, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette and Michigan Rep. Justin Amash. “I am looking forward to the Board of Trustees meeting next week where we will continue our progress and efforts to move forward,” he added. “I believe actions matter, and that is how the success of our work will be determined.” Michigan State University came to a settlement for $500 million with victims of Nassar in May. There has been $425 million set aside for current victims, while $75 million will be set aside for any future claimants. Engler, the former Republican governor of Michigan, responded to Mosallam’s calls to resign by digging in. He released a statement Friday saying, “I continue to look ahead.” Denhollander, meanwhile, spent Friday on Twitter amplifying the number of people calling for Engler to resign. She criticized another trustee who continues to support Engler, saying, “Because stability doing the WRONG THING is better than changing for the right thing?” “He’s the wrong leader for Michigan State University,” fellow trustee Dianne Byrum told WXYZ-TV. “He needs to step down and resign.” Michael Bonfigli /The Christian Science Monitor/Getty Images(EAST LANSING, Mich.) — Michigan State University Interim President John Engler was brought on to clean up the mess left in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal. Instead, with less than five months on the job, calls are growing for him to resign after private emails showed him criticizing one of Nassar’s victims.Engler wrote in an email in April to the president’s special counsel, Carol Viventi, that survivors were being “manipulated by trial lawyers” and Rachel Denhollander, the first gymnast to go public with her claims of abuse by Nassar, was likely to get a “kickback” from the lawyers for her role in the case, according to an article in The Chronicle for Higher Education.On Friday, two Michigan State trustees told Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ-TV that Engler should step down immediately.“He needs to resign immediately. He lacks empathy. He lacks the tone needed to be university president,” trustee Brian Mosallam told WXYZ-TV.“His comments regarding Rachel Denhollander are unconscionable,” he added. “He is not fit to lead Michigan State.”“He’s the wrong leader for Michigan State University,” fellow trustee Dianne Byrum told WXYZ-TV. “He needs to step down and resign.”Engler, the former Republican governor of Michigan, responded to Mosallam’s calls to resign by digging in. He released a statement Friday saying, “I continue to look ahead.”“Whatever the tensions were before, we have successfully negotiated a settlement agreement — something that is fair and equitable to both sides, and that both sides agreed to,” Engler said in the statement. “We are now committed to continuing our efforts to strengthen sexual misconduct prevention on and off campus and to respond promptly to and appropriately if prevention fails.”“I am looking forward to the Board of Trustees meeting next week where we will continue our progress and efforts to move forward,” he added. “I believe actions matter, and that is how the success of our work will be determined.”Denhollander, meanwhile, spent Friday on Twitter amplifying the number of people calling for Engler to resign. She criticized another trustee who continues to support Engler, saying, “Because stability doing the WRONG THING is better than changing for the right thing?”Among the public figures Denhollander applauded for calling on Engler to resign were Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, Michigan Sen. Gary Peters, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette and Michigan Rep. Justin Amash.“I think Engler has made it very clear that he’s not capable of leading MSU out of this crisis,” Denhollander said in a statement to WXYZ-TV. “To characterize not just myself as manipulating for money, but to characterize all these other women as pawns, as being too stupid to know that they’re manipulated, is a gross mischaracterization of sexual assault survivors that is going to set the tone on campus.”Morgan McCaul, another survivor of Nassar and one of many to speak publicly at his sentencing hearing, called on the public to “occupy” the Board of Trustees meeting on June 22 in order to demand Engler’s resignation.Engler could be forced out of the president position if five of eight trustees vote for his ouster.Michigan State University came to a settlement for $500 million with victims of Nassar in May. There has been $425 million set aside for current victims, while $75 million will be set aside for any future claimants.Nassar, who was a faculty member at MSU and served as the longtime doctor to the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team, was sentenced in January to up to 175 years in prison in connection with the treatment of several victims. Nassar faced charges on seven counts of criminal sexual misconduct in the first degree, to which he pleaded guilty to in November.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Michigan State University Interim President John Engler was brought on to clean up the mess left in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal. Instead, with less than five months on the job, calls are growing for him to resign after private emails showed him criticizing one of Nassar’s victims. Engler wrote in an email in April to the president’s special counsel, Carol Viventi, that survivors were being “manipulated by trial lawyers” and Rachel Denhollander, the first gymnast to go public with her claims of abuse by Nassar, was likely to get a “kickback” from the lawyers for her role in the case, according to an article in The Chronicle for Higher Education. “His comments regarding Rachel Denhollander are unconscionable,” he added. “He is not fit to lead Michigan State.” Engler could be forced out of the president position if five of eight trustees vote for his ouster.
