Israelis among wounded in US synagogue attack

Posted on by

first_imgJerusalem: Two Israelis were among the Jews wounded in the weekend attack on a synagogue in California that killed one person and injured three others, an official said Sunday. An Israeli foreign ministry spokesman said an eight-year-old girl and her 31-year-old uncle wounded in the shooting attack in Poway, north of San Diego, on Saturday were from a southern town bordering the Gaza Strip. “The two moved from Sderot to San Diego a few years ago,” spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said in a statement, noting their condition was “good.” San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said both were wounded by shrapnel in the attack on the final day of the week-long Jewish holiday of Passover. A 60-year-old woman was killed in the attack, with the community’s rabbi wounded as well. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportIsraeli Diaspora Minister Naftali Bennett called the slain woman, Lori Gilbert Kaye, “a Jewish hero” who threw herself “in the path of the murderer’s bullets to save the life of the rabbi.” Gore identified the suspect, who was arrested after fleeing the scene, as 19-year-old John Earnest and said he had no prior arrest record. US President Donald Trump denounced the shooting as a “hate crime”. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin called the attack “yet another painful reminder that anti-Semitism and hatred of Jews is still with us, everywhere.” “No country and no society are immune,” he said in a Sunday statement. “Only through education for Holocaust remembrance and tolerance can we deal with this plague.” The shooting in Poway’s Chabad synagogue came exactly six months after a white supremacist killed 11 people at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue — the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in US history.last_img read more

Posted on by

United Nations officials are in Iraq continuing their discussions on the country’s political transition at the end of June and the organization of elections slated for early next year.Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Adviser, Lakhdar Brahimi, was in the northern city of Erbil today for talks with Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani, according to a UN spokesman.Meanwhile, with tomorrow the deadline to accept candidates for the independent electoral commission for Iraq, the head of the UN electoral mission warned that time was running short for finalizing the rules to govern the balloting set for January 2005.Carina Perelli told a press conference yesterday in Baghdad that her team will soon be holding public meetings so Iraqis can have a say in the rules that are to guide the process. The team also has been dealing with the Iraqi Governing Council and its legislative committee dealing with elections to obtain agreement for an electoral law, she added.”If you want an election to happen in January that means by the end of May you need to have those agreements in place,” she said. “Otherwise the electoral authority cannot start working.” read more

Uber backlash in Surrey town as hundreds sign petition amid claims drivers

Posted on by

first_imgThe council, discussing the problems facing Horley, heard that Uber was sending a manager twice a week to check on drivers.Mr Durrant said: “Our officers have met again with Uber and expressed our concerns in the strongest possible terms.”Uber drivers found breaking the terms of the contract including parking in non-designated spaces without a valid parking ticket will receive a penalty charge notice.”Secondly, Uber are sending a manager twice a week to ensure proper conduct by their drivers.”And thirdly, Uber are expected and required to maintain the toilet and rubbish facilities used by their drivers, soiling or littering in the streets or the car park will not be tolerated.”There’s a final option, the council can cancel the contract. Whilst exercising this option would push the problems back into the wider Horley area it has to be considered if this utterly unacceptable behaviour continues.”Mr Durrant later added: “We have already provided extra litter bins and signage in the car park to make it clear to drivers where they can park and have further signage being erected at the entrance to the car park.”If a person sees an individual carrying out the antisocial behaviour and associates this with a vehicle registration number then please report it to Uber so that they can take appropriate action.” Uber app Uber drivers could effectively be forced out of a Surrey town after claims they have been “leering” at and “intimidating” residents.Reigate and Banstead Borough Council agreed last year to lease Uber 50 spaces in the Horley high street car park and a portable toilet was set up following complaints that drivers were urinating in public.But the agreement might be terminated after residents continued to complain to the council and more than 300 have signed a petition to cancel the contract with Uber, the ride-sharing app.Councillors said some Uber drivers had been sleeping in their cars, leaving their engines running and not using the toilets available. I am…concerned at reports of some residents being intimidated or chased out of the car park… this council will not accept this type of behaviourCllr Christian Stevens Conservative councillor Christian Stevens said: “Many of my residents are concerned that the council has provided parking spaces to Uber in Horley’s High Street car park.”This appears to have led to Uber drivers manipulating the car park and in some cases chasing residents off of what is a public facility.”Additionally, there are reports of drivers not using the Portaloos Uber provided, leering and intimidating residents, leaving their engines running, sleeping in their cars and parking in spaces not marked for them.”Councillor James Durrant, portfolio holder for enforcement, said that some residents felt they had been “chased out of the car park” by some drivers.Mr Durrant said: “Although there has been some self-policing by Uber drivers I understand that there are still a number of them who do not park in the designated spaces, leave their engines running or sleep in their vehicles.”This is against the terms of the contract, I am also concerned at reports of some residents being intimidated or chased out of the car park, this is a public facility and this council will not accept this type of behaviour.”center_img Uber is a ride-sharing appCredit:DANIEL SORABJI/AFP Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Awww check out the new baby elephant at Dublin Zoo

Posted on by

first_imgSource: Patrick BolgerA NEW MALE elephant calf has been born at Dublin Zoo – and he already weighs about 80kg (12.5 stone).Born on the morning of July 17 to an Asian elephant called Yasmin, the bull elephant calf was up and walking around less than ten minutes after his birth.Dublin Zoo Assistant Director Paul O’Donoghue said the Zoo is “absolutely thrilled with the new arrival”:This male is significant because he will play an important role in the conservation of Asian elephants. Source: Patrick Bolger“Yasmin is an experienced mother and is bonding well with the calf, which is very strong and suckling well,” O’Donoghue added. “He has been given a warm welcome by the rest of the herd who are being very protective.”The new calf is Yasmin’s third and Zoo staff consider his arrival an important step in the international breeding programme set up to protect the survival of the Asian elephant. Only between 30,000 and 60,000 of the animals still exist in the wild.A competition to name the new calf will be carried out through the Facebook page of the new sponsor of Dublin Zoo’s Kaziranga Forest Trail, The Natural Confectionery Company.

Triskaïdékaphobie traitement symptômes questce que cest

Posted on by

first_imgTriskaïdékaphobie : traitement, symptômes, qu’est-ce que c’est ?La triskaïdékaphobie se caractérise par une peur irrationnelle et excessive du nombre 13. Il s’agit d’une phobie répandue dans la société, à des degrés plus ou moins prononcés. Elle nécessite seulement un traitement dans ses formes les plus sévères.Qu’est-ce que la triskaïdékaphobie ?La triskaïdékaphobie est un trouble anxieux provoqué par une peur exagérée du nombre 13. Ses manifestations peuvent être plus ou moins gênantes selon son intensité. En fonction des cas, le triskaïdékaphobe est surtout angoissé le 13 du mois, à plus forte raison s’il s’agit d’un vendredi 13 (à noter que la phobie du vendredi 13 s’appelle paraskevidékatriaphobie), mais il peut aussi refuser, par exemple, de séjourner dans la chambre n° 13 d’un hôtel. Ceci étant dit, cette phobie est si répandue que de nombreux hôtels n’ont pas de chambre 13… Le triskaïdékaphobe peut également décliner un dîner ou une sortie entre amis si 13 personnes sont réunies. Dans les formes les plus sévères, sa peur du 13 tourne à l’obsession : il peut se lancer dans des calculs sur à peu près tous les sujets pour ne jamais aboutir au nombre 13, si bien qu’il peut refuser de partir en vacances le 7 juin parce que 7 + 6 = 13.Les symptômes de la triskaïdékaphobieLes symptômes de la triskaïdékaphobie peuvent se manifester à la vue du chiffre 13 ou à sa simple évocation. Le principal d’entre eux est une peur incontrôlable, pouvant s’accompagner de pâleur, sueurs, vertiges, palpitations, hyperventilation… Le triskaïdékaphobe peut également fuir le plus loin possible de l’objet de sa peur ou, au contraire, être tétanisé. Les évanouissements sont possibles, mais demeurent plus rares.Les causes de la triskaïdékaphobieLa peur du nombre 13 est fortement ancrée dans plusieurs pays occidentaux. Elle semble tirer son origine de divers faits historiques et religieux ayant associé, au cours des siècles, le nombre 13 au malheur. À lire aussiTrypophobie, l’étrange peur des petits trousDans la religion chrétienne notamment, le nombre 13 a été assimilé au martyre de Jésus : ils étaient 13 à table lors du dernier repas précédant la trahison par Judas. On peut aussi citer l’exécution du grand maître des templiers, Jacques de Molay, le vendredi 13 octobre 1307. Selon la légende, il aurait maudit la famille royale sur 13 générations avant de mourir… À noter : certaines régions du monde, comme l’Asie, sont moins touchées par la triskaïdékaphobie. En revanche, la tétraphobie (peur du chiffre 4) est assez courante au Japon, en Chine, à Taïwan et en Corée. Pourquoi ? Parce que le chiffre 4 se prononce de la même façon que la « mort » dans ces pays…Le traitement de la triskaïdékaphobieUne triskaïdékaphobie peut être handicapante dans la vie quotidienne : il est recommandé d’entamer une psychothérapie pour la soigner. En règle générale, les thérapies cognitivo-comportementales donnent de bons résultats pour la triskaïdékaphobie, qu’elles soient associées ou non à la prise de médicaments (anxiolytiques ou antidépresseurs).Le 27 avril 2017 à 11:33 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

California Military Construction Projects Possibly Saved from Border Wall Delay

Posted on by

first_img ADC AUTHOR A memo last week from Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan appears to preserve $310 million in California military construction funds from diversion to border wall construction, Military.com reported Tuesday.California base officials believe construction projects at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach, Camp Pendleton and Fort Irwin are safe from a list due out May 10 outlining $3.6 billion in funding that could be used for border wall construction, according Shanahan’s guidelines.Shanahan’s memo exempted projects awarded in fiscal 2019, which also includes a $118 million reconstruction of the docking facilities at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach.Most new construction planned for the three California bases appear to meet Shanahan’s directive to not include projects that have “fiscal year 2019 award dates,” as ADC reported last week.But many in Congress remain wary over whether any military projects are safe, including in California.Rep. Harley Rouda (D-Calif.) toured the Seal Beach base Thursday and later released a statement expressing concern.Navy photo by Petty Officer 1st Class Aaron Bewkeslast_img read more

Gallery Media Group Aims for Authenticity

Posted on by

first_imgThat led to the formation of Gallery Media Group, which houses PureWow. In June, the group launched its second media property: ONE37pm, aimed at young men and focused on the intersection of culture and entrepreneurship. A few years back, Gary Vaynerchuk knew he wanted to get into the content business. But the New York entrepreneur and investor, who has run ad agency VaynerMedia since 2009, didn’t want a clickbait farm just chasing quick-and-easy views.Vaynerchuk was friends with Ryan Harwood, founder of women’s lifestyle site PureWow. Over time, he came to understand PureWow’s business better — and then bought it in January 2017. “The fact that PureWow was not very good at siphoning off audience from Facebook was very interesting,” he says. “It’s a real brand.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Still, Harwood notes, “you can’t jam something down the audience’s throat just because it’s beneficial to the advertiser.”Gallery Media generates the bulk of its revenue through branded content, having done work for Procter & Gamble’s Olay and Johnson & Johnson’s Neutrogena. This summer Gallery made a big hire from the TV biz, tapping Kate Mitchell, previously SVP of sales at Oprah Winfrey’s OWN, to be its first chief revenue officer. Mary Kate McGrath is its chief content officer.“We’re trying to build something so that when a brand does something with us, it gets meaningful impressions, not just talk,” Vaynerchuk says.Pictured: Mary Kate McGrath, Gary Vaynerchuk and Ryan Harwood lead Gallery Media Group.

According to their results, MBI/BSGI and MRI had nearly the same sensitivity for the detection of additional malignant tumors, but MBI/BSGI was much less likely to be positive in benign lesions.In their work, Dr. Kim and his colleagues evaluated 66 patients who had a new breast cancer diagnosis and a reported mammography breast density of greater than 50 percent with MBI/BSGI and MRI prior to surgery. Both MBI/BSGI and MRI detected disease not seen by mammography; however, the MBI/BSGI was more accurate than MRI in determining if lesions were benign or malignant.Only 26 percent of the additional lesions detected by MRI were malignant compared to MBI/BSGI, where 76 percent of the lesions detected were malignant. This is important for the newly diagnosed breast cancer patient since biopsy is required when imaging studies are positive. Therefore, MBI/BSGI could have led to a large decrease in the number of unnecessary biopsies for women in this trial. “The results of this study suggest that MBI/BSGI could play a crucial role as an adjunctive imaging modality which can be used to evaluate breast cancer patients with dense breasts,” said Dr. Kim.For more information: www.molecularbreastimaging.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more News | Colonoscopy Systems | August 06, 2019 Rise in Early Onset Colorectal Cancer Not Aligned With Screening Trends A new study finds that trends in colonoscopy rates did not fully align with the increase in colorectal cancer (CRC) in… read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more News | PET-CT | August 15, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Installation of uExplorer Total-body PET/CT United Imaging announced that its uExplorer total-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system… read more News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 07, 2019 Contrast Use in First Transthoracic Echocardiogram for Heart Failure Reduces Repeat Testing Heart failure is the fourth most common cause for all admission to U.S. hospitals, and it is the most common reason for… read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

The list identifies five targeted treatment options that ASTRO recommends for detailed patient-physician discussion before being prescribed. ASTRO released its first list of five recommendations on Sept. 23, 2013.ASTRO’s 2014 list of five recommendations are:Don’t recommend radiation following hysterectomy for endometrial cancer patients with low-risk disease. Patients with low-risk endometrial cancer, including no residual disease in hysterectomy despite positive biopsy, grade 1 or 2 with <50 percent myometrial invasion and no additional high-risk features such as age >60, lymphovascular space invasion or cervical involvement, have a very low risk of recurrence following surgery. Meta-analysis studies of radiation therapy for low-risk endometrial cancer demonstrate increased side effects with no benefit in overall survival compared with surgery alone.Don’t routinely offer radiation therapy for patients who have resected non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), negative margins, N0-1 disease. Patients with early-stage NSCLC have several management options following surgery. These options include observation, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Two meta-analysis studies of post-operative radiotherapy in early NSCLC with node negative or N1 disease suggest increased side effects with no benefit for disease-free survival or overall survival compared to observation. Patients with positive margins following surgery may benefit from post-operative radiotherapy to improve local control regardless of status of their nodal disease.Don’t initiate non-curative radiation therapy without defining the goals of treatment with the patient and considering palliative care referral. Well-defined goals of therapy are associated with improved quality of life and better understanding on the part of patients and their caregivers. Palliative care can be delivered concurrently with anti-cancer therapies. Early palliative care intervention may improve patient outcomes including survival.Don’t routinely recommend follow-up mammograms more often than annually for women who have had radiotherapy following breast conserving surgery. Studies indicate that annual mammograms are the appropriate frequency for surveillance of breast cancer patients who have had breast conserving surgery and radiation therapy with no clear advantage to shorter interval imaging. Patients should wait six to 12 months after the completion of radiation therapy to begin their annual mammogram surveillance. Suspicious findings on physical examination or surveillance imaging might warrant a shorter interval between mammograms.Don’t routinely add adjuvant whole brain radiation therapy to stereotactic radiosurgery for limited brain metastases. Randomized studies have demonstrated no overall survival benefit from the addition of adjuvant whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT) to stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) in the management of selected patients with good performance status and brain metastases from solid tumors. The addition of WBRT to SRS is associated with diminished cognitive function and worse patient-reported fatigue and quality of life. These results are consistent with the worsened, self-reported cognitive function and diminished verbal skills observed in randomized studies of prophylactic cranial irradiation for small cell or non-small cell lung cancer. Patients treated with radiosurgery for brain metastases can develop metastases elsewhere in the brain. Careful surveillance and the judicious use of salvage therapy at the time of brain relapse allow appropriate patients to enjoy the highest quality of life without a detriment in overall survival. Patients should discuss these options with their radiation oncologist.“We are proud to continue our commitment to the Choosing Wisely campaign and to release our second list of five radiation oncology treatments that we recommend physicians and patients discuss in more detail prior to treatment,” said Colleen A.F. Lawton, M.D., FASTRO, chair of ASTRO’s board of directors. “ASTRO is dedicated to supporting a strong doctor-patient relationship to ensure that patients are able to make sound and informed healthcare decisions. Both of ASTRO’s lists provide evidence-based recommendations that will foster detailed conversations so that patients receive appropriate, high-quality radiation oncology care.”ASTRO’s Choosing Wisely list was developed after several months of careful consideration and thorough review, using the most current evidence about management and treatment options. In January 2014, ASTRO formed a work group to develop the second Choosing Wisely list with representatives from health policy, government relations, and clinical affairs and quality. The work group narrowed a list of 28 topics to nine potential items. A survey was sent to ASTRO’s members to rate the value and relevancy of each item. The survey also included an open response option for members to comment on the nine suggested items and to provide additional ideas for the Choosing Wisely list. Using the survey results, the work group submitted a list of eight items to ASTRO’s board of directors, from which the final list of five items was selected. An extensive literature review was conducted for each topic, and the work group drafted the text and selected references for each topic. The final items for submission were approved by ASTRO’s board of directors.For more information: www.astro.org, www.choosingwisely.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

Lawmakers Not Giving Up on GSE Reform

Posted on by

first_img It appears GSE reform may actually be on the horizon—or at least discussed regularly in Washington—thanks to a new bill proposed by Congressman French Hill (R-Arkansas) recently.The bill, called the HR 5505 GSE Review and Reform Act, would require the U.S Treasury Secretary to study the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac annually, as well as the impact ending that conservatorship might have. The bill would also require the Treasury to present recommendations to Congress each year on how to progress GSE reform and move toward ending the conservatorship.Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been under FHFA conservatorship for eight years, when the GSEs required a bailout after the housing market crashed in 2008. Though both Democrats and Republicans have pushed for GSE reform in recent years, Hill says little has been done by Congress to change the conservatorship or even consider a path toward reforming the current system.“There has been no progress toward moving these federally dependent GSEs out of the conservatorship,” Hill said. “My bill would force Treasury to study this issue and present its recommendations to Congress at least once a year, creating engagement on the best path forward on housing finance reform to end taxpayer exposure and ensure access to mortgage credit for Americans.”“There has been no progress toward moving these federally dependent GSEs out of the conservatorship.”Rep. French Hill (R-Arkansas)GSE reform has been hot in the news lately, with parties on both sides of the aisle making pushes in Congress. In mid-May, 12 right-center organizations wrote a letter that urged Congress to pass the Mulvaney Bill, a GSE reform bill sponsored by Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-South Carolina) that would suspend the GSE’s obligation to fund the National Housing Trust Fund and Capital Magnet Fund until they were better capitalized.Not long after that, a group of 32 Democratic House of Representatives members wrote to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and FHFA Director Mel Watt to demand reassessment of the Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (PSPA), which requires the GSEs to have a capital buffer of zero by Jan. 1 of next year. This request came on the back of Watt’s February speech at the Bipartisan Policy Center, when he proclaimed the GSEs’ capital buffer as one of the biggest risks of conservatorship to date.Catch up on the latest news about GSE reform here.

Diversity The Thing Homeowners All Have in Common

Posted on by

first_imgDiversity: The Thing Homeowners All Have in Common The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) finalized four amendments to its Minority and Women Inclusion regulations today. The amendments, initially announced in October 2016, clarify the scope of the FHFA’s regulations and also provide guidance on the implementation of diversity and inclusion efforts.The FHFA adopted its inclusion regulations in 2010, just after the 2008 passage of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act. HERA requires Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the Federal Home Loan Banks, and the Office of Finance—and all its regulated entities—to encourage diversity and inclusion throughout their organizations and in their business activity.In October, the Agency proposed four amendments to clarify further the regulations’ scope, as well as offer implementation guidance to those institutions which it applies. Specifically, the amendments require entities to:Develop strategic plans regarding their diversity and inclusion efforts—or, at the very least, include diversity and inclusion as part of their overall strategic planning sessions,Expand opportunities to minorities, women, and disabled persons when using contractors or vendors;Amend their equal opportunity in employment policies to include sexual orientation, gender identity, and status as a parent, andProvide details on diversity efforts—including those done through affordable housing programs, community investment programs, and capital market transactions—in their annual FHFA reports.The Agency accepted comments on the proposed amendments for 60 days following their release in October last year. Today’s rule finalizes those amendments; it has been published in the Federal Register and will go into effect in 30 days.Today’s final rule is just one of many diversity efforts currently underway in the financial and housing sectors. There are also diversity-focused industry groups, like the American Mortgage Diversity Council, working to expand inclusion initiatives even further.The AMDC aims to address the challenges faced by minorities and women in the industry, as well as encourage supply chain, workforce, and strategy diversification, through events, monthly publications, compliance guidance, training, education, advocacy, and more. The council boasts leaders from GSEs, federal banks, private lenders, credit unions, and other financial institutions from across the country.Learn more about the American Mortgage Diversity Council at MortgageDiversityCouncil.com.

first_img by Scott Stroud, The Associated Press Posted May 9, 2019 9:30 am PDT This cover image released by Berkalin Records shows “Honest,” a release by Ordinary Elephant. (Berkalin Records via AP) Ordinary Elephant, “Honest” (Berkalin Records)A remarkable new album by a husband and wife duo who quit their jobs to go all-in on their music is full of elegant contradictions that somehow converge into one of the best Americana albums of the year.“Honest” was funded with a Kickstarter campaign, according to the liner notes. That’s not something you often see with music this polished and authentic.The contradictions begin with the band name, which sounds like a ’90s jangle-pop band that never broke through. If that’s your expectation, prepare to be surprised.The album’s understated elegance is built around the lead vocals of Crystal Hariu-Damore, who finds the sweet spot between world-weary and intense. It’s a trick you might expect from some of the world’s great singers, but on a Kickstarter-funded effort it’s a revelation.Then come the harmonies of her husband, Pete Damore, which are both carefully studied and easygoing. He dedicates his singing to complementing hers. Perhaps most importantly, he knows when not to sing.Lyrically, every song here has heft. The writing is visual and moving throughout. There’s the artfully political “If I Am Being Honest” which wrestles with a violent world with genuine anguish but never seems preachy. And one of the sweetest songs is the closer “Hope to Be That Happy,” a moving homage to an elderly woman that embeds its tribute in tender imagery.“Honest” is extraordinary from start to finish in that way. It’s a dazzling album with no false notes.Scott Stroud, The Associated Press AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Review: Unheralded duo delivers a gem from Kickstarter roughlast_img read more

Strong Reactions to AntiGay Ugandan Law Include Withdrawal of Aid

Posted on by

first_imgShareTweetShareEmail0 SharesFebruary 24, 2014; CNNThe anti-gay bill signed into law yesterday by Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni increases the penalties for homosexual acts, which are already illegal in Uganda, as they are in 37 other African countries. This bill originally included the death penalty for “aggravated homosexuality,” but it was put on hold and execution was replaced with life in prison after European nations threatened to withdraw aid. Those who reach out to gays and lesbians are also subject to prison terms, thereby making advocacy and support activities punishable by law.In signing the bill, Museveni risks any number of relationships and a good deal of money. Norway and Denmark have already withdrawn their aid to the government and redirected it to NGOs. Over this past weekend, Desmond Tutu decried the proposal, declaring, “We must be entirely clear about this: the history of people is littered with attempts to legislate against love or marriage across class, caste, and race. But there is no scientific basis or genetic rationale for love. There is only the grace of God. There is no scientific justification for prejudice and discrimination, ever. And nor is there any moral justification. Nazi Germany and apartheid South Africa, among others, attest to these facts.”Museveni changed his position on the bill a number of times before signing it. In January, he said he wouldn’t sign the bill, but by February, he’d changed his mind because, he said, scientists had proven that homosexuality is a chosen behavior. “No study has shown you can be homosexual by nature” he said,” That’s why I have agreed to sign the bill.”The United States is one of Uganda’s biggest sources of aid, and U.S. President Barack Obama called the proposal as an “affront and a danger to the gay community” in Uganda. The U.S. is among the nation’s largest donors, but Museveni has declared that the West’s perceptions of his country are of no concern.“Worried? Not at all,” he told CNN. “If the West doesn’t want to work with us because of homosexuals, then we have enough space here to live by ourselves and do business with other people.”“We see how you do things, the families, how they’re organized. All the things, we see them, we keep quiet,” he said. “It’s not our country, maybe you like it. So there’s now an attempt at social imperialism—to impose social values of one group on our society.”—Ruth McCambridgeShareTweetShareEmail0 Shareslast_img read more
