The degree will equip graduates to manage talent and nurture business growth across the public sector, nonprofits and private industry. According to an industry study, human capital is critical to growth, which is why leaders worldwide are making HR a key function to business operations.“Over 90 percent of executives are realizing crucial gaps to be filled at the leadership level and are targeting organizational design as a top priority,”said Mika Nash, PhD, Academic Dean of Continuing Professional Studies at Champlain College. “Champlain’s M.S. in Human Relations and Organization Development prepares those who wish to rise as business advisors to drive and achieve missions and business objectives.”The fully online program teaches the problem-solving skills needed to retain a strong workforce, attract engaged workers, and strengthen an organization’s ability to achieve goals.

Raze Or Rebuild Bel-Aire Cove?

first_imgA debate over competing solutions for the Bel-Aire Cove Motel in Hampton Bays has ended with the Southampton Town Board agreeing to hold a public hearing next month to weigh the property’s fate.After several public comments and an hourlong debate between board members, a unanimous vote was cast in favor of Councilwoman Christina Preston Scalera’s resolution to hold a January 8 hearing to determine whether the Shinnecock Road property should be purchased with money from the Community Preservation Fund.“I feel that this parcel is appropriate for CPF purchase irrespective of the issues that we’re talking about relative to its use as a hotel,” Preston Scalera said at the board’s December 11 meeting. “Ideally, I would have loved to see it flourish as a hotel, or have confidence that it will do so in the future, notwithstanding this speculative nature of using other people’s money to fund hopes. I think it’s problematic that we have a fundamental lack of confidence that this board will enforce its codes. And I think it is well-founded, which is even more troubling to me.”The Bel-Aire Cove Motel has been the source of many complaints and was cited with code violations for overcrowding, bedbugs, and missing smoke detectors during an October 2017 raid. In an attempt to clean up the property, Supervisor Jay Schneiderman proposed what board members are touting as an “out-of-the-box” plan in August to purchase the property for $1.06 million and prepare it for development as luxury town houses or a 22-room boutique hotel.“I’ve been working for three years on this property trying to come up with a community-based solution that would get it to be a positive part of the local economy in Hampton Bays — to clean up the issues around the septic system, to have it be something that would pay a higher tax to the school district than it’s currently paying, and to have it be a hotel once again,” Schneiderman said. “We talked about revitalizing the Hampton Bays community and stimulating the economy. I feel I haven’t made my case strong enough, so this will buy me some time. I’ve got work to do.”Board members on both sides raised concerns that the property might remain a problem for the Southampton board into the future. Preston Scalera said she was afraid the town might find itself back in the same situation if the motel is rebuilt, and Hampton Bays resident Ray D’Angelo echoed her fear, urging the town purchase the property through the CPF, raze it, and preserve it. He was joined by other community members who wished to see the same thing.“My two main concerns are the residents that live there now get safely relocated, which I hope the town would help do, and that this place will be done with,” D’Angelo said. “We would really like to see this thing put to bed — have a stake go through its heart and not see it come back to life.”Councilman John Bouvier had a converse concern.“We’ve acquired a lot of CPF properties that have languished,” he said. “It’s in the heart of Hampton Bays; it’s on the water. If you acquire it with CPF funds and you leave it, then there’s a burden on the town to maintain the property because people see it all the time driving through. It has to be protected. And it could become another blight.”Councilman Tommy John Schiavoni joined his three board members who were opposed to the use of CPF money to buy the property, citing concerns it would set a precedent. Preston Scalera countered that she was just as worried about the town getting into the real estate business.“This property has been a part of Hampton Bays for 60 years,” Schiavoni said. “I am mindful of the tax base in Hampton Bays. Economic development has been one of this board’s goals. Good Ground Park was built; Edward J. Warner Sr. Old Ponquogue Bridge Marine Park and fishing pier, Ponquogue Pavilion, Hot Dog Beach, the Tiana Life-Saving Station, to name a few, are some of the development projects we have, and it would be nice to have people come to Hampton Bays as a summer resort to visit those amenities and go to the restaurants in town and contribute to the economy.”While Schneiderman, Bouvier, Schiavoni, and Councilwoman Julie Lofstad all said they were ready to vote “yes” on the resolution to purchase the property, and felt they had been “maneuvered” to vote in favor of the public hearing, ultimately, they said they would not go against letting the public speak at a formal hearing.“I’m always willing to listen,” Lofstad said. “And especially if time is not of the essence.”Because her fellow board members have already seemed to have made up their minds on the matter, Preston Scalera pleaded with them to do their due diligence in weighing public positions from next month’s hearing. “Go into the public hearing with an open mind,” Preston Scalera said. “I think the public deserves that.”[email protected] Sharelast_img read more

7 Pendleton Marines, sailor charged with murder of Iraqi civilian

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — Seven Marines and a sailor have been charged with murder in the April death of an Iraqi civilian, the Marine Corps said Wednesday. All eight also were charged with kidnapping, according to a Marine statement issued at Camp Pendleton, Calif. Other charges include conspiracy, larceny and providing false official statements. Separately, the U.S. military in Iraq announced that murder charges were filed against a fourth Army soldier in the shooting deaths May 9 of three civilians who had been detained by U.S. troops. Spc. Juston R. Graber, 20, of the 101st Airborne Division was charged with one count of premeditated murder, one count of attempted premeditated murder, one count of conspiracy to commit murder, and making a false official statement. On Monday the military had announced that three soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division were charged with murder and other offenses in connection with the May 9 killings. It was not clear why charges against the fourth soldier were not announced until Wednesday. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2 In the case of the April killing of an Iraqi civilian, the allegation is that Marines pulled an unarmed man from his home on April 26 and shot him to death without provocation. Seven Marines and one Navy corpsman from the Pendleton-based 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment were taken out of Iraq in late May and put in the confinement at Pendleton pending the filing of charges. The Marine Corps identified the eight as: Marine Sgt. Lawrence G. Hutchins III, Marine Cpl. Trent D. Thomas, Navy Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Melson J. Bacos, Marine Lance Cpl. Tyler A. Jackson, Marine Pfc. John J. Jackson, Marine Lance Cpl. Jerry E. Shumate Jr., Marine Lance Cpl. Robert B. Pennington, and Marine Cpl. Marshall L. Magincalda. The case is separate from the alleged killing by other Marines of 24 Iraqi civilians at Haditha last November. A pair of investigations related to that case are still under way and no criminal charges have been filed. The accused in the current case will be assigned military lawyers at no cost, although they have the choice of hiring their own civilian attorneys. Lt. Gen. John Sattler, the senior commander at Pendleton, will decide whether and how to proceed with preliminary hearings known in the military justice system as Article 32 proceedings. Those in turn could lead to courts-martial for some or all eight. On May 24 the Marines announced that Maj. Gen. Richard C. Zilmer, the commander of all Marine forces in Iraq, had asked for a criminal investigation after a preliminary probe. Together, the Hamdania and Haditha cases have generated international criticism of the U.S. and unfavorable publicity for the Marine Corps. Gen. Michael Hagee, the Marine commandant, visited Iraq to reinforce the importance of adhering to ethical standards. “As commandant I am gravely concerned about the serious allegations concerning actions of some Marines at Haditha and Hamdania,” Hagee told a Pentagon news conference June 7. “I can assure you that the Marine Corps takes them seriously.” “As commandant I am the one accountable for organization, training and equipping of Marines,” he added. “I am responsible and I take these responsibilities quite seriously.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
