Opponents call FL bill targeting transgender athletes dangerous, discriminatory

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Photo by Brett Sayles Please enter your name here International Transgender Day of Visibility is an annual event occurring on March 31 dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide, as well as a celebration of their contributions to society.Focus on the LegislatureFrom Florida News ConnectionMembers of the U.S. Congress, and more than 20 state legislatures, including Florida, seek to restrict, and in some cases ban, trans athletes from competing in sports.The bills moving through Florida’s Legislature appear to be on fast-track, with talk from insiders that the Senate version by State Senator Kelli Stargel (R-Lakeland) might skip one of its three committee stops.Stargel’s bill prohibits sports designated for female students from being open to males – and if a student transitions, their testosterone levels will have to be confirmed monthly to remain eligible.Nathan Bruemmer is a transgender man and board member of Equality Florida. He said the measure is discriminatory.“As soon as blanket bans go up for things, it is never about anything good,” said Bruemmer. “It is always about subjugating a community’s rights, and that is exactly what’s happening right now and they are doing it so fast. Why?”Some claim requiring a transgender woman to maintain testosterone levels below 10 nanomoles is a scientific solution to a controversial problem. Opponents say the bills, which have been duplicated across the country, are more of a solution in search of a problem.Bruemmer said the bill comes at a time when his community needs to be uplifted, when trans children needs assurance that they no longer have to suffer in silence. He said the bill is dangerous since statistics show one in two trans youths will attempt suicide.“We have lost community members who are not here with us to take the fight on,” said Bruemmer, “either because of those statistics who’ve taken their own life or who choose to disengage and just not participate even if they would love to do so because they’ve gotten the message that they don’t matter and we don’t want you hear.”The House version of the bill by State Representative Kaylee Tuck (R- Lake Placid) is more restrictive against transgender women, as it would keep female high school athletic teams for biological women and girls, excluding transgender women from competition.Bruemmer said both measures along with others across the country is discouraging, especially with the approaching International Transgender Day of Visibility on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. The annual event raises awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide.center_img You have entered an incorrect email address!

Located in Oakland, California, on a down-sloping site high above the San Francisco Bay, this home was designed to capture the magnificent vistas spanning from the Bay Bridge to the Golden Gate Bridge. Floor-to-ceiling glass clears the way to unobstructed views. The predominantly south-southwest orientation required deep overhangs to cut down glare and soften the light quality in the home.The clients, a couple with grown children, wanted to create a dream home for their life as empty nesters, but still desired accommodations for their kids and other frequent guests. Thus, the four-bedroom home was planned as two distinct volumes connected by a glass bridge.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemThe primary volume is all about the owners who sought luxury and transparency. The master suite is a spacious open area with a wall of glass connecting the residents with their setting and capturing the breathtaking bay. The tub and shower are open to the bedroom and separated from the outside only by glass. Also in this main structure are the open plan of living room and kitchen. The secondary volume, the street-facing building, comprises less critical functions: a glass carport, three guest rooms and a recreation room. Save this picture!Spare and rigorously Modern in its aesthetic, the home has only a handful of materials and even fewer colors. Concrete floors, steel and glass window systems, and a mostly white composition of cabinetry and furnishings define the minimalist composition. Color is introduced subtly through blue plaster, landscaping, artwork and the dramatic views. The plaster, a meticulously trowelled herring bone scratch coat, has the illusory effect of a shimmering metal finish. Save this picture!The building’s bowed walls – an hourglass in plan – are a response to the client’s desire for curvilinear forms as well as a strategy to satisfy municipal setback regulations. Rather than require that the entire building be set back a certain distance from property lines, city planners allowed the clients to average the home’s setback distance. The curves also serve to create a visual compression, which has the effect of a volume being squeezed in the center and exploding to the view on the glazed façade.Project gallerySee allShow lessPakistan Pavillion for Shanghai World ExpoArticlesMuseum of Nature and Science / MorphosisArticles Share Area:  394 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projectscenter_img United States “COPY” Year:  “COPY” Architects: Kanner Architects Area Area of this architecture project Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/35536/oakland-house-kanner-architects Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/35536/oakland-house-kanner-architects Clipboardlast_img read more

New site to enable individuals to donate PCs

first_img Tagged with: Digital Technology Trading New site to enable individuals to donate PCs UK charities can now apply for free, donated computers on a new Web site, donateapc.org.uk.Donateapc.org.uk acts as a free ‘matchmaking service’ to enable individuals and organisations to donate their unneeded computers, printers and IT equipment to a UK charity. Charities can therefore browse through the database and contact the donors directly if they are interested in receiving the equipment. In addition, charities themselves are also encouraged to donate their old computers for other charities if they are upgrading their own PCs. The service is free for donors and charities alike. Advertisement Howard Lake | 18 June 2003 | News  32 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis For donors, the service is primarily intended for people who only have one or two computers they want to donate, or for anyone who can’t find a recycling organisation who will take their unwanted equipment. There are plenty of recognised recycling organisations that will handle donations of multiple computers or IT equipment. Ivan Wainewright, one of the site’s founders, explained: “There are many people who would like to give their old and unneeded computers to a charity but for various reasons they cannot do so through one of the standard recycling organisations. For example, they may not live near enough to such an organisation, or it may not be convenient for their local recycling organisation to accept just one or two items. Or they may wish to donate the computer to a particular type of cause. “Donateapc thus increases the ways in which people can give their old IT equipment to a good cause. Items such as computers, printers, scanners, hubs, screens and even photo-copiers can be made good use of by a charity or non-profit organisation.” The site also includes tips for charities on what they should consider before accepting a used computer and articles on what donors should do before donating their PC to charity.

Mullahs call for death penalty for young journalist held for past three months

first_img May 3, 2021 Find out more News News Follow the news on Afghanistan Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says News AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information June 2, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders is very worried about the pressure being placed on the authorities by conservative religious leaders in the case of Sayed Perwiz Kambakhsh, a young journalist in the northern province of Balkh who has been detained since late October 2007 on charges of blasphemy and defaming Islam. The Council of Mullahs says he should be sentenced to death.”The calls for the death penalty for Kambakhsh highlight the growing influence of fundamentalist groups on intellectual debate,” the organisation said. “The blasphemy charges are an ill-disguised attempt to hide the desire of the local authorities to restrict press freedom.”A reporter for the newspaper Jahan-e Naw (“The New World”) and a journalism student at Balkh university, Kambakhsh, 23, was arrested on 27 October and detained in Mazar-i-Sharif. Articles on the role of women in Muslim society were found at his home.His brother, Sayed Yaqub Ibrahimi, also a journalist, told Reporters Without Borders his arrest was illegal. “Any case involving the press should be heard first by the Media Evaluation Commission before going to the courts,” he said. “Furthermore, the prosecutor only referred the case to the courts after the Council of Mullahs said he should be sentenced to death for insulting holy texts.”Journalists in Balkh province finally revealed that Kambakhsh was being detained after the failure of attempts to obtain his release through negotiation. They wrote to President Hamid Karzai calling for his release. Two days later, the Council of Mullahs warned the authorities against releasing him.Reporters Without Borders is also very concerned about Ghows Zalmay, a former journalist and attorney-general’s spokesman, who is being held for publishing a translation of the Koran into Dari. He was arrested in early November after conservative religious leaders said the translation was “un-Islamic” and misinterpreted verses about adultery and begging. Parliamentarians have even accused him of being “worse than Salman Rushdie.”Afghan journalists are exposed to threats and harassment from religious fundamentalists who try to prevent any debate about Islam and the status of women. The authorities often violate freedom of expression on the grounds of protecting the Islamic nature of Afghan society.Reporters Without Borders appeals to the international community to intercede with the Afghan government and seek the release of Kambakhsh and Zalmay.center_img Organisation January 17, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Mullahs call for death penalty for young journalist held for past three months Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” to go further RSF_en News AfghanistanAsia – Pacific RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan March 11, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Gavin Newsom was settled before enforcing orders barring indoor gatherings, including church services.On Wednesday, Harvest Rock Church lost a court case that would have allowed them to legally hold indoor meetings.“At minimum, the city should await the outcome of such litigation before storming the church-house door and imposing criminal sanctions on Harvest Rock Church, its pastor, and the religious adherents assembled in the pews,” the Liberty Counsel wrote in an Aug. 12 letter, the same day church lawyers lost in court.The church has been meeting despite Gov. Gavin Newsom’s order, which closes indoor operations at several businesses, including restaurants, hair salons, and fitness centers.In that letter, attorneys with the nonprofit religious liberty organization, which promotes litigation related to evangelical Christian values, accused the city of exercising a “discriminatory application of the Governor’s COVID-19 orders.”“Though your July 28 letter asserts that the city has been enforcing the orders against all gatherings in the city, the treatment of the recent demonstrations, protests, riots, and looting tells a far different [and blatantly discriminatory] story.“On June 10, 2020, hundreds of people gathered in the streets of Pasadena without threat of criminal sanction.”There were no riots or looting in Pasadena during the demonstrations following the death of George Floyd, a Black motorist killed by police officers in Minnesota.Harvest Rock — like the protesters — can meet and hold rallies and services outdoors. They are also allowed to hold services via Zoom.The church contends that failure to gather in person for religious worship services “is disobedience to the Lord for which (the church) will be held divinely accountable.”Recent guidelines issued by the state Department of Public Health, through the governor, discourage singing or chanting indoors due to fears that it increases the spread of respiratory droplets, thus heightening the risk of spreading COVID-19 among a crowd.In that July 28 letter, the church was ordered by the city to cease indoor operation or risk misdemeanor charges that could result in fines and imprisonment. The July 28 letter was signed by Code Compliance Manager Israel Del Toro.“The city is enforcing these orders and will continue to do so until present the emergency ends,” the letter states.It was not immediately known if the church plans to hold indoor services on Sunday.Churches were closed in March amid Newsom’s stay-at-home orders after they were deemed a nonessential service. Subsequent restrictions eased and churches were given the OK to open the doors provided they followed health and safety guidelines limiting attendance.On Wednesday, lawyers seemed to be ready to take action if they did not get their way.“Nevertheless, should the city persist in its efforts to discriminatorily and unconstitutionally seek to enforce its draconian restrictions only on religious adherents, while turning a blind eye to thousands of protesters, rioters, and looters, Liberty Counsel stands ready to vindicate the cherished constitutional rights of Harvest Rock Church, Pastor Che Ahn, and all of Harvest Rock Church’s members and congregants.”last_img read more

Parmeshwar, appearing on behalf of the Commission, and granted the extension of 6 months. The Bench also heard Advocate Pradeep Yadav, who apprised the Court of the recent incident of custodial torture in Tamil Nadu wherein a father-son duo were tortured to death in police custody, and sought for a fixed timeline and guidelines in order to prevent such encounters. The CJI, however, did not agree with the submission. “How can we ensure no deaths in custody? There are some who die of natural causes. We cannot grant relief like this and say that there should be no crime. As a lawyer, you have higher responsibility and need to make some reasonable arguments.” Accordingly, the Bench granted the six months’ extension to the Inquiry Commission to complete the probe and file its final report. Filed by Advocate K. Parameshwar, the instant Application submits that the circumstances that have arisen due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdown, have “hindered the sittings of the Inquiry Commission as the three members of the Commission reside in different cities and the place of inquiry is in a wholly different city as well”. The Application, however, goes on to state that the Inquiry Commission’s work was not completely halted by the pandemic as collection of records and documents, as well as statements of persons acquainted with the incident went on, despite the situation. On 12 December, 2019, the Supreme Court had directed for the constitution of an Inquiry Commission to investigate the circumstances which led to the alleged encounter of four accused persons in Hyderabad on 6th December, 2019. The four accused persons had been in custody of the police in connection with the rape and murder of a young veterinary doctor. The Commission is headed by former Supreme Court Judge, Justice VS Sirpurkar, and comprises of former Judge of the Bombay High Court, Justice RP Sondurbaldota and former Director of Central Bureau of Investigation, DR Kaarthikeyan. A period of 6 months had been granted to the Commission for completion of inquiry, from the date of its first sitting. Accordingly, the Telangana High Court had given permission for accommodation of the Inquiry Commission, and the Government of Telangana had issued sanction for the creation of 19 temporary posts for a period of six months, to aid with the functioning of the Commission. The Terms of Reference of the Inquiry Commission were, thereafter, framed by the Supreme Court on 10th January, 2020, and directed for an inquiry into the “circumstances that led to the death of the aforementioned four persons and to ascertain as to whether any offence appears to have been committed in the course. If yes, to fix the responsibility of erring officials”. Post this, the first sitting of the Inquiry Commission was held on 3rd February, and a public notice was published, inviting persons acquainted with the matter of inquiry, to come forward and furnish information to the Commission. The Application states that, in pursuance of the public notice, 1365 Affidavits were filed by various persons, and almost all were in Telegu, therefore, requiring translation into English. It is further submitted that relevant records from the NHRC Investigation team, SIT Investigation team have been collected as well as post-mortem reports. However, the Application submits, due to the declaration of the national lockdown in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, work of the Inquiry Commission has been halted as they have been constrained to suspend sittings. The possibility of conducting online hearings and sittings were explored, but the same was abandoned by the Commission due to difficulties arising from security and confidentiality. “Moreover, the inquiry requires physical inspection of the scene of incident and other related locations, which is also not possible in a virtual hearing. Conducting inquiry, without physical hearings, spot inspections and so on, does not appear feasible”. In light of the above circumstances, the Application prays for an extension of six months for submission of final report from the date the Commission is able to resume investigation. It further prays for directions to the Government of Telangana to issue appropriate orders to enable the continued functioning of the Inquiry Commission.
