Nine members of a Louisiana State University fraternity were arrested Thursday on hazing charges, the school told BuzzFeed News.

The students, who were Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity members, are accused of being involved in several incidents of violent and disturbing hazing activities that took place last fall.

Charles Eugene Brakenridge, 23; Blake Andrew Chalin, 20; Cade Rain Duckworth, 23; Gaston Thomas Eymard, 23; Shakti P. Gilotra, 22; Joseph Dylan Harkrider, 19; Malcolm Richard McNiece, 23; Alexander Joseph Rozas, 23; and Garrett Joseph Sanders, 21, were arrested. All but Duckworth and McNiece are enrolled at LSU this semester, the school said.

According to an affidavit obtained by BuzzFeed News, the hazing included kicking pledges in the chest with steel toe boots, beating them with a metal pipe, and making them stand in painful positions for hours on end. In one case, a pledge said he was doused with gasoline.

In another instance, a pledge was forced to “strip down to his underwear and climb into an ice machine that was half filled with water and half still frozen ice” and stay there for 30 to 45 minutes, the affidavit says. The pledge said he “did not attempt to get out of the ice machine because he felt he would have been beaten up if he did.”

After being removed from the ice machine, the pledge said he was made to lie on a basketball court covered in broken glass, where he and another pledge were “sprayed with a hose, had milk crates thrown at them, and were urinated on.”

Duckworth faces the most serious charges, with three felonies for battery and false imprisonment, as well as three charges of criminal hazing.

Eymard, McNiece, and Gilotra also face felony charges for battery.

The rest face misdemeanor charges of criminal hazing.

The school’s chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon was closed in January due to the hazing allegations.

“Our number one priority is that our chapters foster safe environments, and through our investigation, we found that the student members made choices inconsistent with the policies and values of Delta Kappa Epsilon,” DKE Executive Director Doug Lanpher said. “DKE does not tolerate this kind of behavior in the fraternity and holds its chapters and members accountable for the choices they make.”

Jason Droddy, the school’s Interim vice president for strategic communications, commended the fraternity’s national organization for quickly closing the chapter, saying it demonstrates “a growing recognition that hazing and other harmful activities cannot be tolerated.”

“This is a sad day for the university, but one that illustrates the cultural shift occurring at LSU,” Droddy said.

These are not the first arrests at LSU over hazing charges.

In 2017, 18-year-old Maxwell Gruver died in a hazing incident while pledging Phi Delta Theta fraternity.

Gruver’s blood alcohol content was 0.495 at the time of his death, and an autopsy found that he accidentally died of “acute alcohol intoxication with aspiration.”

The school suspended Greek life while his death was investigated.

Ten members of the fraternity were arrested as a result, with four eventually being indicted on hazing charges. One of the members is also being charged with negligent homicide.

كيف يمكنك إنشاء سينما منزلية في بيتك بأقل التكاليف الممكنة؟ • تسعة


إنشاء سينما منزلية

كثيرا ما تراودنا فكرة إنشاء سينما منزلية حيث نتوجه إليها في نهاية اليوم كي نزيل عن أنفسنا كل ما علق فينا من ضغوط وإرهاق طوال النهار لنشاهد فيلمنا المفضل الذي سيفصلنا عن الواقع وبالنسبة لواحد مثلي فكرة إنشاء سينما منزلية فكرة مثالية لأنني عادة لا أحب مشاهدة الأفلام في السينمات العادية لسبب هام وهو عدم احتمالي تعليقات الناس على الأفلام أو ضحكهم مثلا على مشاهد غير مضحكة وكأن شخصا حين يمل من الفيلم فينهض ليرحل في سلام دون إفساد متعة المشاهدة على من أحبوا الفيلم ليس واردا في قاموس مشاهدة الأفلام بل يجب أن يفسده على من يندمجون معه بالفعل لذلك فكرة إنشاء سينما منزلية فكرة رائعة وتحتاج إلى ميزانية نوعا ما.

ما تحتاجه من أجل إنشاء سينما منزلية

  • شاشة عرض سينمائي مما يسمى بالـhome theater وبها الكثير من الماركات وبأحجام مختلفة يناسب غرفتك من أول 43 بوصة وحتى 120 بوصة، ولكن يوجد أحجام متوسطة وهي 65 بوصة وهي مناسبة لأحجام الغرف المتوسطة 4*4 متر أو ما قاربها وهي بتكلفة تقارب الـ2500 دولار في المتوسط بالنسبة لكافة الأصناف.
  • يلزمك بروجيكتور (عارض) مناسب للشاشة، ولاحظ هذا جيدا أنه يجب أن يكون البروجيكتور مناسب لحجم الشاشة التي تختارها، واسأل عنها المختصين، حيث هناك أنواع للمحاضرات وهي ما تستخدم من أجل معالجة الضوء الرقمي وغير مناسبة لفكرة إنشاء سينما منزلية ولكن هناك أنواع أخرى مخصصة للشاشات التي تعمل بتقنية إل سي دي وتقاس قوة البروجيكتور ووضوح إضاءته بوحدة تسمى لومينس، عليك أن تختار البروجيكتور المناسب للشاشة التي اخترتها، حيث يتداخل مع هذا الأمر أيضًا مساحة وإضاءة الغرفة التي تنوي إنشاء سينما منزلية بها.
  • مشغل أقراص الدي في دي أو ريسيفر السينما المنزلية حيث يوجد الآن ريسيفرات مزودة بيو إس بي أو واي فاي للتشغيل عبر الإنترنت ولكن يجب أن يكون التشغيل من قنوات شرعية تسمح بالتشغيل بجودة فائقة الدقة تبدأ 1080p حتى تستمتع حقيقة بأجواء السينما المنزلية، ويمكنك وقتها الاستغناء عن البروجيكتور إذا أردت والاكتفاء بالرسيفر.
  • مضخم صوتي حيث يعطيك نفس الصوت المضخم الخاص بالسينما وابتعد عن نظام الإستريو لأنه خاص بالموسيقى هناك نظام خاص بالسينما المنزلية أكثر، وهناك عدة أنظمة للصوت يمكنك سؤال المختصين عنها أو طلب مساعدة أحد المهندسين الذي سيقوم بتركيب الأجهزة أو يمكنك تركيبها وحدك باتباع الإرشادات الخاصة بكل جهاز.

تكلفة إنشاء سينما منزلية

إنشاء سينما منزلية تكلفة إنشاء سينما منزلية

حسب الميزانية المتواجدة معك وحسب السينما المنزلية التي تنوي إنشاءها فعلى أي حال أنت المتحكم في الأمر حيث يمكن أن يكلفك هذا 500 دولار فحسب عن طريق شراء أجهزة النظام الصوتي فحسب وهناك ما يسمى “صندوق السينما المنزلية” يمكن تركيبه على الشاشة كبيرة الحجم فحسب وبهذا يكون لديك سينما منزلية أما إذا أردت إمكانيات أكبر وشاشة أكبر ومضخمات صوت يتم تركيبها في الحائط وأشياء من هذا القبيل يمكن أن يكلفك هذا 2000 دولار ويمكن أن يكلف 7000 آلاف إن أردت شراء شاشة بحجم 87 بوصة مثلا ونود لفت النظر إلا أنه كلما زاد حجم الشاشة وزادت إمكانياتها كلما زادت أسعار الملحقات من البروجيكتور ونظام تشغيل البلوراي والألترا اتش دي والأنظمة الصوتية المناسبة والكابلات وغيرها، وعلى أي حال أقصى ما يمكن أن يكلفك إنشاء سينما منزلية 10 آلاف دولار كحد أقصى.

إنشاء سينما منزلية أمر رائع ويستحق العناء وقد ذهبت مرة إلى أحد أصدقائي الذي كان يركب مضخم صوتي على شاشته بحجم 65 بوصة وكان للأفلام طعم آخر كأننا جالسون في السينما وأكثر أي نريد أن نقول أن الأمر يستحق العناء فعلا.

WHEN A GOOD PAINTER GOES BAD by Charlie Finch








Feeling that Armory Week is the best time to hit the galleries, because nobody will be there, I stopped by L&M Arts on East 78th Street, rang the bell, and ran smack into Peter Brant, who looked fantastic, slimmed down in a chocolate-colored corduroy suit. We were alone together, except for the cheery L&M staff, which was hanging a Frank Stella black painting, one of the murkier ones, on the back wall. As I leaned against a ladder, smiling, it occurred to me that L&M had exactly the right relaxed attitude towards art frenzy: when the lemmings head to the sea, be a seagull.

Cruising down towards Gagosian Gallery, I spied Stella Michaels and her brother selling her abstract paintings out of a van. "Are you part of the biennial?" I asked. "No," Stella bubbled, "I park outside of the Gagosian building every day to sell my work and Larry always says hello."

Why is it that uptown Gagosian always makes me feel as if I am entering the psych ward of the prison hospital? You know, narrow corridors to nowhere, murky glass doors, scary nurse attendants behind the admitting desks? However, the rest rooms are first rate, which is probably why Stella Michaels chose to park right outside.

My dear friend, the great collector Ranbir Singh, has been buying his pal Albert Oehlen‘s work for years, getting me to appreciate Albert in the process, but Oehlen’s new stuff at Gagosian is super awful. Don’t look at them online, see them in person to breathe the vomit: splatches of purple and gross green on open white fields, stupidly decorated with corporate logos borrowed from Ashley Bickerton‘s 1980s practice.

When I journeyed downstairs to see a forgettable installation of Yayoi Kusama and Piotr Uklanski dot paintings, it occurred to me that Gagosian is accomplishing what Pace Gallery was always accused of doing (but now does not), dumbing down every artist it signs and shows, success breeding mediocrity. It happened with Damien Hirst, it happened with John Currin and now Albert Oehlen is cursed as well. Maybe Larry could reverse the curse by giving Julian Schnabel a show, so Schabbo could paint something good!

The best abstract paintings I saw were the early-20th-century Crow Indian saddle bags, decorated in colorful, painterly grids, at John Molloy’s space on 78th street, next to L&M. But then I bought one, for $600, after bargaining John down, so I am biased.
