Former prof sues college claiming she was pushed out
Ann Marie Flynn wants her original teaching job back at Manhattan College
Posted May 19, 2019 — By HEATHER J. SMITH

A former tenured professor says Manhattan College was wrong to allegedly push her out of her job after more than 20 years at the school, claiming in a human rights commission complaint and a lawsuit filed in Bronx County Supreme Court that administrators discriminated against her over gender and perceived disability.

Up until a few years ago, Ann Marie Flynn was chair of Manhattan College’s chemical engineering department — a program she says was once listed with the likes of Princeton University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology as among the top chemical engineering programs in the nation.

She took family medical leave in January 2014 to care for her cancer-stricken husband and to deal with her own depression over his illness, according to complaints filed with the Bronx Supreme Court and the city’s human rights commission. When Flynn tried to return, she claims provost William Clyde and engineering school dean Tim Ward demoted her, prevented her from returning to work, solicited student complaints against her, and ultimately called a termination hearing she says violated the college’s employee policy, according to the human rights complaint.

*** and ***

Wade, Fabe and Clyde did not respond to requests on Monday to comment.

The lawsuit comes nearly a year after some students picketed outside Flynn’s disciplinary hearing, claiming the school was giving her an unfair shake.

“How can you pick at someone for being loud in a classroom?” asked Nicole May at the time, a Manhattan College alum who once had Flynn has a professor. “It was nitpicking. All she did was push her kids, and you’re going to try to terminate her for that?”

Flynn also seeks attorney’s fees and unspecified monetary damages.

POSITRACTION: ‘Great Green Wall’ in Africa

Dozens of Countries Have Been Working to Plant ‘Great Green Wall’ – and It’s Holding Back Poverty
By McKinley Corbley – Mar 31, 2019

*** begin quote ***

More than 20 African countries have joined together in an international mission to plant a massive wall of trees running across the continent – and after a little over a decade of work, it has reaped great success.

The tree-planting project, which has been dubbed The Great Green Wall of Africa, stretches across roughly 6,000 miles (8,000 kilometers) of terrain at the southern edge of the Sahara desert, a region known as the Sahel.

The region was once a lush oasis of greenery and foliage back in the 1970s, but the combined forces of population growth, unsustainable land management, and climate change turned the area into a barren and degraded swath of land.

After decades of political collaboration, the Great Green Wall project was finally launched by 11 countries in 2007.

The initiative has since recruited at least nine additional countries to plant drought-resistant acacia trees across the entire width of the continent. Though the wall is currently only about 15% percent complete, it has already dramatically impacted the participating countries.

Over 12 million acres (5 million hectares) of degraded land has been restored in Nigeria; roughly 30 million acres of drought-resistant trees have been planted across Senegal; and a whopping 37 million acres of land has been restored in Ethiopia – just to name a few of the states involved.

Sounds like a great idea.

Wonder if we could do it here in the USA?

Bury some of the Interstates with “animal migration overpasses” and it’s possible?
