Calarco was nominated to the board by Associate Class members. His nomination was then approved by the general membership. CORTLAND, N.Y. – The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) Board of Directors, historically comprised solely of lift manufacturers, will include a representative from the lift inspection side of the business for the first time in 2014. Evan Calarco of Total Tool Ltd. (Castleton, N.Y.) was elected to serve as the board’s first Associate Class member during the annual membership meeting held in Las Vegas on Nov. 4. “The addition to our board of an Associate Class member who represents ALI Certified Lift Inspectors reflects well on the growth of the organization and our vision for the future,” said R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman, ALI president. “There are more than 500 active lift inspector candidates currently in the program, representing more than 300 different organizations. As the Associate Class membership class grows, the influx of new participants will help ALI penetrate deeper into the industry to better educate lift users about equipment safety. Having a lift inspection representative in the boardroom gives us a stronger voice and offers new perspectives, which enables ALI to better serve everyone.” The new Associate Class of ALI membership was created as part of ALI’s Lift Inspector Certification program launched in November 2012. Any North American organization with at least one ALI Certified Lift Inspector on staff may join ALI as an Associate Class member. Associate Class members have access to exclusive industry resources, training materials and discounts. They also vote to put forth the Associate Class member board representative. More than 40 companies have joined ALI as Associate Class members in the past three months. ALI’s 2014 Board also includes Chairman Jerome Lentz of Challenger Lifts (Louisville, Ky.); Douglas Grunnet of Stertil KONI USA (Streator, Ill.); Gary Kennon of Rotary Lift Consolidated (Madison, Ind.); Jeff Kritzer of Bendpak, Inc. (Santa Paula, Calif.); Pete Liebetreu of Hunter Engineering Co. (Bridgeton, Mo.); Stet Schanze of Gray Manufacturing Co., Inc. (St. Joseph, Mo.); and O’Gorman.

Little progress will be made for mandated police body cameras from that House Bill 93 currently being considered in the state senate. The bill, which unanimously passed the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee during its first hearing, only requires police departments throughout Florida currently using body camera to regulate officer training, the use of cameras and the management of footage captured.The move comes at a disappointment for police body camera advocates seeking a statewide mandate. But Broward County State Representative Hazel Rogers said that while this demand is “understandable” in light of recent high-profile police shootings, “it may not be practical, as some departments may not be able to afford the cost of the cameras.”Bill 93 sponsor Democrat Shevrin Jones of West Park admits “some departments don’t have the capacity to use the camera, and to impose a mandate would be costly and unfunded.”Calls for state police officers to wear body camera has escalated since last month’s shooting death of church musician Corey Jones, 31, by a Palm Beach Gardens police officer. Jones was shot while waiting by his car on a highway for a tow truck after his car had broken down.Last Sunday, at a vigil held in memory of Jones by Florida’s Black Law Students Association in Lauderdale Lakes, renewed calls were made for mandated police body cameras. The panelists, including Representative Jones and Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, supported the call for Body cameras. Israel told the audience that he would be advocating for the use of body cameras by county police officers.To date, only a few departments in Palm Beach County, Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami Beach wear body cameras. While no departments in Broward are mandated to wear cameras, officials in Hallandale Beach, Coral Springs and Lauderhill are reviewing the possibilityMiami security consultant Manley Nichols said that while body cameras are “ideal, especially as controversial police shootings escalate, there are serious cost, training, and privacy implications, so this is an innovation that cannot be rushed.”
Egyptian MP Suzy Nashed revealed that 89 female MPs filed a complaint to parliamentary speaker Ali Abdelaal over the statement of MP Elhamy Agina, which called on female MPs to wear modest clothing inside the parliament.The female MPs demanded that Agina apologize for his inappropriate statement in front of the House of Representatives.MP Dina Abdel Aziz from Helwan said she rejects Agina’s statement, describing it as provoking, and called for an immediate written apology to all female MPs. “Female MPs headed to the council in the early morning to express their anger toward the irresponsible statement,” she said Wednesday evening.Other MPs expressed solidarity with the female MPs to stress personal freedoms, including the freedom of attire, Abdel Aziz mentioned.MP Mai Mahmoud called on Agina to apologize for his statement, adding that all female MPs wear modest clothes, despite different styles which might differ from one governorate to another.Agina should focus on the laws he wants to amend or approve instead of the clothes of female MPs, Mahmoud said.MP Anisa Hassouna commented on the incident saying that parliament should not indulge in such controversy and called on Agina to apologize for his statement. She added Agina’s statement harmed him rather than the female MPs.“All female MPs are modest. (Agina’s) statement is inappropriate and unacceptable,” said MP Hayam Halawa.MP Mona Mounir rejected Agina’s statement as well and intervention in the personal freedom of citizens in general. She described the statement as provoking.The statement does not deserve a comment, said MP Noha al-Hemeily, the youngest MP in parliament. MP Sara Gad el-Mawla also downplayed Agina’s statement saying that the country needs work, effort and legislation that citizens are awaiting.Agina meanwhile commented on the ongoing controversy saying that media has magnified his statement and tackled it in a way that offended female MPs. Agina pointed out that he criticized casual clothes, like jeans and dresses worn by some female MPs. Agina accused media of twisting his statement, adding that all female MPs are modest and respectable.
