As with everything Depeche Mode, Paper Monsters is a bit hit-and-miss. The spooky, hallucinogenic paranoia of the thick strings in ‘A Little Piece’ is undermined by execrable Hawaiian guitars in ‘Hold On’, and Gahan always seems intent on having one Marilyn Manson-esque pulsing industrial number as in ‘Bottle Living’. ‘Black and Blue Again’ is perhaps the most challenging song, an unpromising start builds slowly to a noisy climax of Reznor proportions with the nicely understated vocals proclaiming “I’m not very nice”. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if Gahan is hoping to get some of this stringbased material on a future David Lynch sountrack; some tracks are similar to the work of Angelo Badalamenti. Out come the corny 808 drum sounds for ‘I Need You’. Was that really necessary? Out June 2ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2003
A Labour safe seat since 1987, Dodds gained more votes than the other seven candidates standing in Oxford East. Dodds was first elected in the 2017 general election in which she gained over 35,000 votes. Gaining 28,135 votes, this election narrows her majority.

Conservative PCC, Louise Staite, gained 20.9% of the vote, whilst the Liberal Democrats’ Alistair Fernie gained 13.9%. Despite Liberal Democrat and Labour successes in Oxford, the Conservative Party will form a government under Boris Johnson after winning a majority. The Green Party’s PCC, David Williams, gained 4.8% and the Brexit Party gained 2.3%, while the three Independent candidates amassed 499 votes between them. Dodds, an Oxford graduate, was an MEP for South East England from 2014 before her election as MP in 2017.

FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail By Annah Elliott and Zach RobertsFor TheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS–Doctors, businesses and medical consultants turned out Wednesday in support of legislation that would bar hospitals and other health care providers from springing surprise bills on patients.House Bill 1004 and Senate Bill 3 would prevent hospitals and other health care providers from charging patients for services that are outside of the care networks covered by their health insurance. Votes were postponed until next week on both bills, which were heard in House and Senate health committees Wednesday, to allow time for likely amendments.Dr. Brian Blase, who served from 2017 to 2019 as a special assistant to President Trump for healthcare policy, applauded SB 3.“It is confusing and unfair for consumers whose facilities are represented in the network and then indigenously receive surprise bills from a provider or a service that was out of network,” Blase said.SB 3, authored by Sen. Ed Charbonneau, R-Valparaiso, would require healthcare providers to give patients a good faith estimate about the cost of their procedure at least five days beforehand, with the exception of emergency room bills. Under the bill, healthcare providers who are out of network but are providing services at an in-network facility cannot charge more than the insurance company agreed to pay the in-network provider.Dr. Alexander Choi, the president of Anesthesia Consultants of Indianapolis, testified in both the Senate and House committees that he liked the idea of ensuring patients know the costs, but wants to see changes in the legislation.Dr. Alexander Choi opposes the wording of SB 3. Photo by Andrea Rahman, TheStatehouseFile.com.“The concept I fully support. In fact, our practice has been doing that for years,” he said.But he said there were interpretation issues that could allow for possible arbitration, and problems with billing the out-of-network companiesTerry Metzger, the chief financial officer for St. Vincent Health, supported the bill and told lawmakers about insurance misunderstandings among patients.“We have to take patients out of the middle,” he said.The House bill, HB 1004, would reduce out-of-network prices to the lower in-network costs. Rep. Ben Smaltz, the Auburn Republican who authored the bill, said the focus is on the suffering Hoosiers.“An in-network facility may not bill in-network patient out-of-network fees,” he said.Getting a surprise bill, he said, could have both financial and health consequences.“The next time they need help with their health, they may be much more reluctant to seek the care that they need,” he said.Blase, who also is a senior research fellow on health care policy and spending and budget Initiative at the Mercatus Center in Virginia, called HB 1004 a step in the right direction, citing recent studies that show Indiana’s hospital prices and spending are higher than other states.“The prices in Indiana are 30% higher than other states in the study, 40% higher for outpatient care,” he said.FOOTNOTE: Annah Elliott and Zach Roberts are reporters for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalists.

A jeep comes to the aid of another vehicle stuck on a cross-street off West Avenue in July in Ocean City.A citizen campaign to urge the city to address street flooding problems in Ocean City continued Thursday night with seven people speaking at a City Council meeting.The property owners had been part of a grassroots meeting Wednesday night where about 40 people shared stories of moving cars, wading through floodwaters, dodging waves generated by passing vehicles, and trying to clean up after the waters recede.The meeting was organized by a subcommittee of the Fairness in Taxes group, and the attendees agreed that flooding has increased in recent years and that it can occur even on sunny days — with salt water bubbling up through storm drains. (Read more: Ocean City Residents Rally for Relief on Street Flooding.)The citizens who spoke on Thursday repeated some of the same frustrations and asked council members for a long-term plan to remediate flooding (“not a Band-Aid”) and for an ongoing maintenance plan.“What are we doing going forward, and how can I help?” 23rd Street resident Jackie Mittleman said.Mayor Jay Gillian responded to criticism of the city related to street flooding in a prepared “State of the City” address and in other remarks.“A primary focus of the capital plan is further road and drainage improvements throughout the city,” Gillian said. “I’d like to clear something up. This focus is not new. The first thing I did when I came to office was get the check valves installed that were called for in the Hatch Mott McDonald report. Thirty-one new valves were installed, and they’re being maintained.”“A few months later, the administration presented and City Council adopted the first formal capital plan for many years. That plan’s top priority was roads and drainage. We have not just recently added the word ‘drainage’ to appease somebody, and it’s ridiculous to suggest we have.”In his address (read full text), Gillian said every drainage area in the city has been rated on six criteria, and the ratings have been overlaid with road ratings to target “the areas where we can improve conditions for the most people.”He said bulkheads have been replaced and outfall capacity increased, among other improvements. He noted the completion of a major flood-remediation project in Merion Park and a planned one on the north end, making use of “the biggest grant in the city’s history.”“As we did in Merion Park, we will bring in an outside consultant to advise us on planned improvements for the neighborhood between 29th and 34th streets from West Avenue to Bay Avenue,” Gillian said. “We intend to involve the neighborhood in these discussions and fund the improvements this year.”Councilman Keith Hartzell said that local knowledge of specific flooding patterns is essential to any successful project.“The people in the neighborhood have to be talked to,” he said. “We can’t know it all.”In public comment at the close of the meeting, Fairness in Taxes President Michael Hinchman asked City Council to draw circles on a map of the Top 10 drainage areas most in need of work and to publish the list.“There will be some parts of the city you can’t fix,” he said.Hinchman said it would be more transparent to publish that list as well.

The Erskine Peters Fellowship, which helped African American graduate students finish their dissertations for the past 11 years, will come to an end at the conclusion of this academic year, the Fellowship’s coordinator said. The Office of the Provost, which funds the Fellowship, decided to terminate the program. The Office did not give a specific reason for its decision, however, the program was not endowed and was funded strictly on a year-to-year basis, Erskine Peters coordinator Maria McKenna said. McKennasaid the Fellowship aimed to give students the opportunity to experience academic life. “We wanted to give African-American graduate students an opportunity in[higher education],” she said. “The second goal was for them to experience academic life at a major Catholic university.” The Fellowship, which funded two to four African-American graduate students for a year to finish their dissertations through the Office of the Provost and other funds, has seen 47 fellows in its 11-year run, she said. “It is viewed as one of the premiere pre-doctoral fellowships,” McKenna said. “It put Notre Dame on the map as one of the universities putting African-Americans into higher education.” Richard Pierce, chair of the Africana Studies department and one of the founders of the fellowship program, said the Fellowship brought remarkable individuals to campus. “We’ve had some great people come through the program,” he said. “[Writing a dissertation] is a lonely process in the academic world — it’s just you and your work. To have this program and to be part of that process with these fellows is good. I get to see the best parts of the students.” When the idea of a fellowship program for minorities came up in a conversation with First Year of Studies Dean Hugh Page in 1999, Pierce said both agreed they wanted to find a way to increase the number of diverse faculty teaching in higher education. Therefore, they established a fellowship to help students finish their dissertations and enter the teaching realm. At the same meeting, Erskine Peters — a former Notre Dame English professor who empowered his students and fellow faculty members — was declared the namesake of the Fellowship due to his diverse mindset. “Peters came here and was committed to students,” he said. “[Notre Dame] is a large experiment. Some say you can’t have reason and faith in one body. Peters challenged that — he showed that you can have this in one mind, one body and one heart.” McKenna said she believes Peters would have been honored by the fellowship. “This fellowship program meant a great deal to his family because he was such a pioneer in many ways to the academy,” she said. “Notre Dame did justice to the impact Erskine Peters had on students and the academy by honoring him with this program.” To commemorate the Fellowship, McKenna said the Africana Studies department, in conjunction with the Institute for Scholarships in the Liberal Arts, the College of Arts and Letters and the Kenneth and Frances Reid Fund, will host a conference from March 29 to March 31. “We’re having it as a finale,” she said. “The conference is ‘Africana Studies’ Impact on the Academy,’ looking at the study of African people and the diasporas around the world.” The keynote address, “Minorities in the Academy: Then and Now,” will be given by Earl Lewis, the provost of Emery University. McKenna said Lewis knew Peters when he taught at the University of California, Berkeley, before coming to Notre Dame. There are no plans to continue a pre-doctoral fellowship program like the Peters Fellowship on campus, McKenna said. Pierce said he is grateful for the Fellowship and what it taught the faculty of the University. “We fulfilled the goals we had,” he said. “However, I wish we had more people hired here that came through the program … It’s difficult to think that we didn’t keep them here. Looking at their accomplishments, though, I’m pleased with the little part we played.”
