Media Release: St. Thomas University Establishes New Holocaust Centre
Posted by justfred.ca on July 17th, 2008
St. Thomas University Media Release - St. Thomas University Establishes New Holocaust Centre

St. Thomas University is establishing a Holocaust Centre to raise greater awareness of the plight of Holocaust victims during the Second World War, as well as other genocides throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first century. As part of its education and research program, the new centre will support the Ripples Internment Camp project, the only camp in North America that housed Jewish internees during the Second World War.

“Our centre will be distinct in content and mission. It will educate young people about the tragedies that transpire when prejudice, racism, and hate target groups in society,” said Dr. Michael McGowan, professor in Human Rights and director of the new centre. “People learn to hate and they can learn to stop hating by knowledge, understanding and engagement with others.”

He said the centre will give recognition to the significance of the SHOAH as a means to develop leadership to prevent similar atrocities. “We want to bring students together from across Canada and around the world to increase their knowledge of genocide and equip them to become leaders in their work for peace, understanding and respect.”

The Holocaust Centre will deliver educational programmes for students and professional groups, provide scholarships, organize seminars and conferences, and sponsor public lectures by scholars. The new centre will co-operate with other organizations such as the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews, the Canadian Centre for Diversity, and Yad Vashem.

Three outreach activities are already planned for the year – a study mission to Germany and Poland, a summer institute on diversity and respect, and interviewing surviving Ripples Camp internees. A fund-raising campaign will be launched for the Endowment Fund of the St. Thomas University Holocaust Centre, and a new advisory board will guide the centre’s activities.

At its Summer Convocation held today, St. Thomas University awarded an honourary degree to Philip Riteman, a Holocaust survivor. Born in Poland, Riteman and his family were sent to the Pruzhany ghetto in 1941 and the following year, they were packed into boxcars for a week’s journey to the Auschwitz-Birkeneau extermination camp. Tattooed as prisoner 98706, he would be the sole survivor of his extended family. After forty years of silent mourning, Riteman first spoke of his experience as a Holocaust survivor in 1989 to give voice to the millions who died and to silence Holocaust deniers.

St. Thomas University (www.stu.ca ), located in Fredericton, New Brunswick, is Canada’s only exclusively liberal arts university. Its cornerstone Bachelor of Arts programme encompasses 25 fields of study with numerous interdisciplinary options including an innovative Human Rights programme. St. Thomas is home to many research centres including the Atlantic Human Rights Centre. Both the Human Rights programme and the Atlantic Human Rights Centre seek to educate and train young leaders.

justFRED-0-GRAM $#*@ Computers II
Posted by jfnews@justFRED.ca on July 15th, 2008
Talk about a late update...you'll find more videos from River Jam, a
very different @ The Office, flowers, big skies, Tom Swift's
Lighthouse concert photos, and more...finally...

http://justFRED.ca/

Plenty in the calendar today from summer camps to concerts in the
park (Celtic Discovery tonight)...

As you may recall, we did a major server migration just before Canada
Day and spent the next week or so cleaning up the broken bits. Last
night, as we were preparing to update the site, our connection to
half of the site (the photo and video gallery part) suddendly stopped
responding. We tried from four different computers. Nothing. But some
colleagues in another location reported everything working fine for
them.

We finally isolated the problem this morning: a faulty router. So we
replaced it. With what turned out to be another faulty router.
Grrrrr...

The new router and network setup is in place. The home page and
galleries are up to date. The Daily Fred will be on its way as soon
as we hit...SEND...

We even had a chance to drop by the 2008 Harvest Jazz & Blues lineup
announcement this morning. We'll have photos and details tomorrow.

Cheers,

George

FDSA U18 Caps Win 2 of 3 Weekend Games
Posted by justfred.ca on July 13th, 2008
CAPS 7-1 Fundy (in Fredericton)
CAPS 2-1 Chaleur (in Bathurst)
CAPS 1-2 Chaleur (in Bathurst)



It was a busy weekend for the FDSA U18 CAPS men's team. Thanks to the Soccer New Brunswick schedule makers, they were forced to play 3 league games in 24 hours. The weekend started off well with a 7-1 home defeat of Fundy with goals from Patrick Burtt (2), Amir Razak (2), Elliott Hicks, Jeff Khoury and Charles Duplessis. Brad Stewart had the goal for Fundy.

On Saturday the CAPS travelled to league leading Chaleur for a double header.

In game one, Chaleur took the lead in the first half with a goal from Lene Arseneault, but the CAPS hit back with 2 goals from Jason Rouse to take the game 2-1.

In the rubber match, Chaleur made use of its longer bench and not having to travel. They dominated the first 10 minutes and opened the scoring when Lene Arseneault managed to get on the end of a shot across the box. This was a wake up call for the CAPS and they immediately picked up their game, but at half time the CAPS trailed 1-0. In the second half, Amir Razak beat several defenders to cross the ball and Frankie Daddurno's shot appeared to have cross the line, but the ref gave no goal. However, the ball was crossed back into the box by Marc Rossignol and Ray Harris' header beat the Chaleur keeper to tie the game. With both teams tiring each side was creating chances. The CAPS were working the ball forward with subtelty, but Chaleur was countering with a persistent long ball. The game looked like it would end in stalemate, but with two minutes played in time added on, Chaleur won a free kick. The ball was kicked high into the box and when the CAPS tired legs failed to clear it, Phillipe Degnace pounced on the loose ball to claim the 2-1 victory for Chaleur.

The CAPS record is now 5-2-2.

PS - A couple of people who moved and changed their settings for
justFRED-O-GRAMS report their old settings have returned. It looks
like some account settings broke when we moved to new servers about 2
weeks ago. If that happened to you, please accept our apologies. If
you want to change your justFRED-O-GRAM settings, use the appropriate
link down below and follow the instructions on the web page you're
taken to.

PPS - And yes, we know that entering justFRED contests is more
complicated than it should be. We're working on that during our
redesign.

justFRED-0-GRAM Heat Wave
Posted by jfnews@justFRED.ca on July 10th, 2008
One of the fans at The Drifters concert in the ampitheatre in
Fredericton North last night was electric - pushing some cool breeze
in the direction of the band. We also found some wading pool dippers
- and a few folks who wish they were young enough to get into the
kiddies pool. More local garden blooms. Baby butterflies. And more.

justFRED DEVELOPMENTS

The member database and login have been a long-standing issue for us.
The redesign and the rebuild of the site will include a complete
overhaul of those pieces.

Meantime, we've found a way to dramatically increase the size of the
video display. We pushed it to the max yesterday which means bigger
videos (the good) but they're more pixelated (the bad). We're working
on a happy medium: larger, clearer videos.

Cheers,
George
