Woods named to list

first_imgThe postseason hardware looks like it might find its way into the hands of USC sophomore wide receiver Robert Woods, who has put up some impressive numbers in just his second season with the Trojans’ program.The second-year wideout has been named a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award, given annually to the college football’s best receiver.Woods ranks seventh in total receiving yards (1,126), fourth in total catches (92) and ties for fourth in touchdowns (11). All of those marks put him first in the Pac-12.Woods is on pace to pass former USC receiver Keyshawn Johnson’s mark for the Pac-12 and USC record for most receptions in a season at 102.Woods was named one of 10 semifinalists Monday, joining fellow Pac-12 sophomore, California’s Kennan Allen along with Baylor’s Kendall Wright, Oklahoma State’s Justin Blackmon, Western Michigan’s Jordan White, Oklahoma’s Ryan Broyles, Clemson’s Sammy Watkins, Houston’s Patrick Edwards, Notre Dame’s Michael Floyd and Illinois’ A.J. Jenkins.Before last Saturday’s game against Washington, in which Woods caught a mere two passes for five yards, Woods seldom had a poor week, his worst outing being the five-catch, 36-yard performance against California at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Oct. 13.This season Woods has already broken USC records for receptions in a game — 17 against Minnesota during the team’s season opener on Sept. 3 — and yards in a game — 255 during an Oct. 1 game against Arizona.Since the award’s inception in 1994, no USC wide receiver has ever won the award.The finalists of the Biletnikoff Award will be announced Nov. 21, and the winner will be announced on The Home Depot College Football Awards live on Dec. 8, at 6 p.m. on ESPN. Correction: A previous version of this article stated Robert Woods recorded seven receptions against Minnesota. He actually had 17.last_img read more

Detroit Bankruptcy Judge Rejects Extended Water Shutoff Moratorium

first_imgShareTweetShareEmail0 SharesSeptember 29, 2014;Detroit Free PressThe continuing tragedy of Detroit’s practice of turning off running, potable water on households who are seriously delinquent on their water bills has reached a new pinnacle: The judge overseeing the Detroit bankruptcy process has ruled that he doesn’t have the authority to stop the shutoffs.Or did he say that? It isn’t really clear. He actually said that there is no constitutional right of citizens to running, potable water. Clean water may be a necessity for health and wellbeing, but it isn’t a right. People who have their water shut off can presumably use public toilets, find drinking fountains, or access water for hygiene elsewhere.There may not be a constitutional right to water in Judge Steven Rhodes’s view, but the United Nations believes (and has a resolution indicating) that water is a human right. The UN General Assembly:“Recognizes the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life and all human rights; [and]“Calls upon States and international organizations to provide financial resources, capacity-building and technology transfer, through international assistance and cooperation, in particular to developing countries, in order to scale up efforts to provide safe, clean, accessible and affordable drinking water and sanitation for all”But Judge Rhodes also introduced a financial issue that may have been as much a factor in his thinking as the question of his constitutional prerogatives. In his ruling from the bench, Judge Rhodes suggested that the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department would be financially harmed by an extension of the water shutoff moratorium. In light of the city’s bankruptcy and the efforts of all parties to eke every nickel they can out of any source they might find, the judge said that an extended moratorium on shutoffs would be “the last thing [Detroit] needs” as a “hit to its revenues.”Alice Jennings, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, which included 10 residents as well as nonprofits like the People’s Water Board and the National Action Network, pointed out that her clients were not advocating for free water, but for affordable water. Moreover, the cutoffs could adversely negatively impact people least able to cope with the lack of running water, such as homes with children or with disabled persons. Witnesses from the Water Department testified that they didn’t possess “specific data” on how many of the shutoffs had affected households with vulnerable people, though one department spokesperson suggested without elaboration that they had “a fairly good handle on this.”Since the shutoff moratorium ended in August, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department has been turning off water for as many as 400 accounts a day. According to Darryl Latimer, the department’s deputy director, DWSD was “on pace to collect $1.5 million” in July, but during the month of the moratorium, the Department only got $200,000. If you were a bankruptcy judge trying to hammer out an equitable arrangement between the city and its multiple creditors, you might be disinclined to pass on maximizing available funds—even with the potential cost of human lives.The result is that even with the moratorium and with programs generated by foundations and other donors, some 22,000 homes lost water due to shutoffs between March and August. Subtract the 15,251 who had service restored through payments or agreeing to payment plans, and that leaves nearly 7,000 homes shut off, with more on the way.{loadmodule mod_banners,Ads for Advertisers 5} The judge’s decision may have been even more than an issue of scraping for every potential coin in Detroit. The press cited Aaron Renn, an urban affairs analyst who blogs under the name “The Urbanophile,” to the effect that, “If city officials don’t have the stomach to collect long-overdue [water] bills, how will they undertake tougher reforms?”Judge Rhodes could have said that widespread water shutoffs in Detroit were a health and safety threat to Detroit’s predominantly low-income population, but instead he said it was outside of his legal purview. His ruling could have laid the groundwork for a thoughtful discussion of what aspects of public services—or how much of public services—should be treated as human rights and not subordinate to the financial needs of a municipal department whose history of managerial miscues and bad investments led to the Detroit water crisis.That’s what’s really at issue: What parts of modern life should be treated as necessities, as rights to be protected? Access to healthcare? Access to decent and safe housing? Access to clean running water? In this instance, perhaps only a narrow one, Judge Rhodes has ruled that the rights of Detroit’s creditors who are trying to get paid back for their investments and expenses, trump the rights of Detroit’s legacy residents who are simply trying to live. – Rick CohenShareTweetShareEmail0 Shareslast_img read more
