first_imgHeather Cook sentenced to seven years in prison Rector Bath, NC November 15, 2015 at 12:32 am When we use absolutes, we are almost always wrong. They should be avoided if only for accuracy of speech/writing. Often they are also inflammatory (in this case not so much, but in general). Few incidents are “wholly” predictable; in this instance, many people behave the same way she did and have no incident and do not hurt or kill anyone; this in itself negates the “wholly” predictable statement. The “entirely avoidable” tragedy phrase is similar in nature. It clearly was a tragedy. She clearly could have minimized the possibility by behaving responsibly. Was it “entirely avoidable” in any set of circumstances? The absolutes would lead one to believe the answer is no. In no way can she be (legally) absolved of her responsibility for the tragedy. But neither can we when we use statements of an absolute nature, which can inflame attitudes and are generally inaccurate. I think most of us can do better if we think about what we are saying/writing. October 29, 2015 at 3:12 pm You are using incorrect language to describe this criminal event. This was not an “accident”. Please look it up. I don’t mean to imply that she intended to hit or kill. However, by driving drunk, by texting while driving, her crash was wholly predictable. A crash by someone drunk and texting is entirely expected. There is more than apparent fault in this case. This was not an act of God, this what an entirely avoidable tragedy. And if you hang your hat on “she didn’t intend to…”, then consider this; she intended to drink, she intended to drink and drive, she intended to break the law, she intended to text while driving drunk, and she intended to endanger the rest of us by doing these things. Please don’t use language that insults the victim. This was not an “accident”.

First of all there is a period of time which varies after admission in which visiting is very limited if at all. Secondly: the hours for visiting in Maryland are quite limited, only Thursday – Sunday on certain dates for an hour or less usually in a public room except for lawyers.Third: prisoners have to list the people they want to visit, even clergy cannot just wander in at will. The prisoners are expected to work on a daily basis as well.Prisons do have chaplains who provide pastoral care on a nondenominational basis.

I wonder which clergy of the Episcopal Church are visiting her since the Episcopal Church claims in its worship and its policies to be there in for those who are poor, orphaned, widowed, disabled, in prison, etc. ?

She was originally accused of 13 charges relating to the fatal accident.Judge Timothy Doory sentenced Cook after testimony about the impact of Palermo’s death from his mother, wife and sisters-in-law, according to the Baltimore Sun newspaper.Cook addressed the Palermo family after their testimony. “I am so sorry for the grief and the agony I have caused,” she said, according to the Sun. “This is my fault. I accept complete responsibility.”Attorneys for Cook and the Palermo family said during the hearing that they had resolved any civil liability arising out of the fatal accident.At the end of the hearing Cook was handcuffed and taken into custody. She had been free on $2.5 million bail since being charged October 31, 2015 at 10:32 pm I agree with Mr. Larson 100 percent. I conduct an outpatient substance abuse program through my private practice,one of the points that is constantly being pointed out to the patients in the program is that they chose to drink or do drugs. Once they made that choice, they then chose the consequences for that behavior. None of them intended to get caught while drinking and driving or get caught while doing drugs and driving, but once they got behind the wheel of their car while impaired, they are also responsible for the consequences of that choice. I agree that this was not an accident, she chose to drive and text while impaired, to give her only 7 years for killing someone is a slap in the face for people like me who work diligently trying to get people who drive while impaired to accept the responsibility of their actions and get them off the road. With a sentence of only 7 years you set substance abuse programs back into the dark ages.

first_imgThe Academic Council approved the College of Science’s proposal to create the Department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics (DACMS) in its meeting Thursday. The new department will begin its programs for undergraduate and graduate students in the Fall 2010 semester, according to Gregory Crawford, dean of the College of Science.Crawford said the new department will work closely with the existing Department of Mathematics and with other departments across campus.“Statistics is so important in all disciplines,” he said.The new department was created in part to enhance the emphasis on statistics at the University, Crawford said.“We were trying to figure out how to get more statistics at Notre Dame,” he said. “If you look at [the U.S. News and World Report rankings of universities for undergraduate education], 15 of the top 20 schools have at least one statistics department. We had to do something.”Although the new department will be the first to concentrate entirely on applied mathematics and statistics at the University, it will not bring an entirely new field of study to Notre Dame.“Applied mathematicians at Notre Dame already do a lot of statistics and computational modeling,” Crawford said. “By creating a statistics department, we’re expanding on the applied mathematics and computation already going on.”Creating DACMS will not significantly affect the existing Department of Mathematics, Crawford said.“Both departments will be very well resourced,” he said.According to Crawford, the new department will have an interdisciplinary research and teaching focus.“Since statistics is so important in all disciplines, as the department starts to grow, the new department will cooperate with other departments,” he said.He cited offering statistics courses that are geared to social science, engineering and biology majors as areas in which the new department will affect undergraduates in other disciplines.Crawford said he expects DACMS to remain a relatively small department but said it will have a high number of faculty members who have joint or concurrent appointments in other departments.The planned size of the new department is consistent with statistics departments at other universities, Crawford said.“[Statistics departments] tend to be very collaborative and do more interdisciplinary work,” he said. “[DACMS] will work with other departments and colleges to hire jointly with them.”Graduate students in the new department will have a unique role that is consistent will the department’s interdisciplinary mission. Instead of only serving as teaching assistants, graduate students will also serve as collaborative assistants (CAs).CAs will be available to assist faculty members and graduate students from other departments and colleges with the statistical elements of their research.“This will stimulate the cross-disciplinary research that’s going on at Notre Dame,” Crawford said. “It’s very exciting for [the College of] Science to offer this to the other colleges on campus.”The new department will sponsor its own major in applied and computational mathematics and statistics. Students who graduate with an undergraduate degree from DACMS will have graduate school options in diverse fields, including economics, sociology, psychology, engineering and science, Crawford said.Alumni of the program will also have options in the private sector.“It’s a very applied degree, so industry is looking for applied mathematicians and statisticians, as are hospitals,” Crawford said. “Most companies are looking for people with computational savvy.”Crawford said creating the new department does not affect the College of Science’s commitment to the Department of Mathematics.“The investment is going into the new department and the existing mathematics department,” he said. “It’s very important that both departments grow together.“We have an excellent mathematics department here.”last_img read more
