WATERLOO, Belgium — The leader of Catalonia’s failed secession bid in 2017 who fled Spain to avoid arrest says that the central government will be seeking “vengeance” instead of justice when 12 of his separatist allies stand trial next week.Carles Puigdemont has told The Associated Press at his house in Belgium, where he established residence after fleeing Spain, “we are all supporting them, helping them because they are suffering a terribly unjust and humiliating situation.”He said in the interview Sunday that “the trial is not an act of justice. It will not be an act of justice but rather one of vengeance.”Spanish Supreme Court President Carlos Lesmes has guaranteed that “this is a trial following the highest standards set by the European Union.”___Joseph Wilson reported from Barcelona, Spain.Renata Brito And Joseph Wilson, The Associated Press
Two sick Palestinian refugee children waiting for resettlement from Iraq died in the last two weeks, underscoring the precarious conditions faced by the group, a spokesperson for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said today.One of the children died in Baghdad while another died in Al Waleed refugee camp at the Iraq-Syria border, where earlier this month a 50-year-old man awaiting resettlement also died earlier this month.“So far seven people have died there, including three young children, since Palestinian refugees started to arrive at the border in March 2006 fleeing violent attacks against them,” said William Spindler.The 3-year-old Palestinian boy who died at the camp had been suffering from rickets, a bone disease caused by lack of vitamins and minerals, as well as pneumonia. The other Palestinian child, whose resettlement approval was pending, was a 14-year-old suffering from Hodgkin’s disease.The UN refugee agency has repeatedly sought to spotlight the problems faced by Palestinian refugees in Iraq, many of whom are stranded at the border, unable to cross into Syria. Earlier this year, the agency appealed for urgent medical resettlement for vulnerable and sick children in Al Waleed camp.So far, the agency has helped resettle one family of eight with several sick children from this camp to Norway last August. Another 11 medical cases submitted for resettlement are awaiting approval. Meanwhile, UNHCR has continued to identify other Palestinian medical cases, such as cancer patients and children with birth defects, who need urgent care.“UNHCR continues to urge resettlement countries to make rapid decisions and facilitate the departure of those most in need,” Mr. Spindler said.An estimated 2,000 Palestinians are living in severe conditions in refugee camps along the Iraq-Syria border, unable to cross into Syria. A steady flow of Palestinians have fled Baghdad since March 2006, when intimidation, forced evictions and attacks against their community began mounting. “UNHCR has sought solutions for the whole group since last year and has only received positive indications from Sudan and Chile,” said Mr. Spindler. Earlier this year Brazil took 107 Palestinians who had been stuck in Jordan’s Ruweished camp for four years.Meanwhile, some refugees continue to return to Iraq. UNHCR staff in Syria noted an average of 600 Iraqis returning to their country daily over the past week. “Many of them said that they had run out of money and their visas had expired,” the spokesman noted.“We welcome any improvements in the security situation and stand ready to assist people who have decided or will decide to return voluntarily. Iraqis themselves are the best judges as to how secure they feel. However, we still do not believe that the time has come to promote, organize or encourage returns to Iraq. That would be possible only when proper conditions are in place – including material and legal support and physical safety,” he said.According to government estimates, there are some 2.2 million Iraqi refugees – including some 500,000 in Jordan and up to 1.5 million in Syria. An estimated 2.4 million are displaced inside Iraq. 30 November 2007Two sick Palestinian refugee children waiting for resettlement from Iraq died in the last two weeks, underscoring the precarious conditions faced by the group, a spokesperson for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said today.
It eliminates the incentive for stealing a deviceCanada’s wireless carriers are targeting smartphone theft by setting up a database that will blacklist lost or stolen phones to prevent them from being reactivated.The move would also help protect personal data on such devices, the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association said Thursday.Smartphones are worth $600 to $700 and can be resold on the black market, noted association president Bernard Lord.“With this database, it makes that a lot less attractive because the buyer of the stolen phone will not be able to connect to any network in Canada,” Lord said from Ottawa.“It eliminates the incentive for stealing a device.”[np-related]The idea is also to reduce the black market value of a smartphone in the eyes of criminals, Lord added.Once consumers call their wireless carrier to report their smartphone lost or stolen, the device’s internal identification number goes on the electronic blacklist.Lord said even though more smartphones are lost than stolen, law enforcement officials have raised concerns about the issue.The database for the Canadian wireless industry will be up and running by September 2013 and Canada’s carriers will also be contributing to an international database to help prevent smartphone theft, he said.However, consumers who have their smartphones lost or stolen are “not off the hook” for paying their smartphone contracts.A website will also be set up by the association to help consumers protect their smartphone data and help protect themselves from theft.Lord said the smartphone’s ID number — called the international mobile electronic number — will be verified by carriers to make sure the device has not been lost or stolen.The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission congratulated the wireless industry for the initiative, but would like the database running sooner rather than later.“I would strongly encourage the industry to implement the database before September 2013 to ensure Canadians benefit from this added protection as soon as possible,” chairman Jean-Pierre Blais said in a statement.The creation of a database and collaboration to make sure stolen or lost devices aren’t reactivated will help make them less desirable to thieves, Blais said.“The CRTC has been concerned for some time about reports of an increase in crimes involving lost or stolen cellphones.”Telus said while the wireless industry, law enforcement, and regulators all have a role to play, smartphone users need to think about where they’re buying their devices.“We ask consumers to reconsider buying phones on sites like eBay, Craigslist, or Kijiji and instead buy their devices from a verified dealer,” Telus spokesman Shawn Hall said.“If you buy a phone from Craig’s List it might be legitimate, but it could be stolen and then you will likely be unable to get it activated,” he said.Smartphone use in Canada is among the highest in the world and penetration has exceeded 50 per cent, Lord said.Canada’s wireless industry will spend about $20-million on the initiative, he said.The United States is also taking steps to create a database that includes all of its carriers to fight the black market and their deadline is November 2013, Lord said.
After 21 years under the watch of John Bluem, Ohio State found a new men’s soccer head coach Monday.The Buckeyes announced the hire of former Indiana associate head coach Brian Maisonneuve as the 10th coach in program history. He spent the past 10 years guiding the Hoosiers to eight NCAA tournament appearances including their victorious 2012 NCAA national championship and a runner-up finish in the 2017 season.“I am excited to get to work and continue to grow the Ohio State program into one of the elite soccer programs in the country,” Brian Maisonneuve said in a statement. “John [Bluem] did a great job over the last 21 years and I am so honored for this opportunity. This is an incredible athletics department with tremendous resources.”Maisonneuve was an All-American as a player for the Hoosiers during his four-year tenure on the team from 1991 to 1994, and his success does not stop there. After playing at Indiana, Maisonneuve went to play for the Columbus Crew from 1996 to 2004. He also was a member of the 1996 U.S. Olympic team and the 1998 U.S. World Cup team. When his playing days were done, he coached for five years before joining the Hoosiers. He led the Hoosiers to eight NCAA tournaments throughout his time as a coach.He will fit perfectly as the next in line of a successful coaching history. “We are fortunate to add Brian Maisonneuve to our outstanding lineup of head coaches,” Ohio State Athletics Director Gene Smith said in a statement. “He has competed at a high level and coached in one of the most successful collegiate programs nationally. We look forward to the opportunities our student-athletes will have under Brian’s direction.” Maisonneuve has received multiple coaching awards throughout his career including the NSCAA Assistant Coach of the Year for the Great Lakes Region in 2012 and 2015. He was also named one of the top 12 assistants in the nation for the third straight year and fifth time in his career in 2016.
Another case, heard in a separate trial but contained in the same ruling, failed as the judge ruled an unrelated claimant, who is also anonymous, “has not accepted his guilt, has misled the public and this Court, and shows no remorse over any of these matters.” Some 669,355 requests for links to be removed from the search engine results have been made to Google since the ruling, around half of which were successful. The most affected website is Facebook, with 18,723 links removed.The ruling was made on a case by Spaniard Mario Costeja Gonzalez, who wanted two newspaper articles dating back to 1998 to be deleted from the search results page, which contained an announcement for a real-estate auction after he got into debt. In a statement a spokesman for Google said: “We work hard to comply with the Right to be Forgotten, but we take great care not to remove search results that are in the public interest and will defend the public’s right to access lawful information. “We are pleased that the Court recognised our efforts in this area, and we will respect the judgements they have made in this case.” Criminals are to have the “right to be forgotten” after Google lost a landmark High Court case to a businessman who asked it to remove information about his conviction. The man, who cannot be identified, had a spent conviction for conspiracy to carry out surveillance and had been sent to prison for six months. Mr Justice Warby, sitting in the High Court, said his offending and sentence, which was served over a decade ago, was “of little if any relevance” to future business activity and ordered that the links should be “delisted”. “The crime and punishment information has become out of date, irrelevant and of no sufficient legitimate interest to users of Google Search to justify its continued availability, so that an appropriate delisting order should be made,” he said. The man also had a young, second family, as well as adult children, which added to his case for privacy under the Human Rights Act, the judge said. He did not award any damages. He added that the information in his case “retains sufficient relevance” to his current life and business practices. In that case the claimant had been convicted of conspiracy to account falsely and sent to prison for four years. The cases were the first of their kind to be heard in England, and the ruling could have implications for criminals who want to remove information about a conviction from search engines. Jim Killock, executive director of the Open Rights Group, which campaigns to promote digital freedom, said: “The right to be forgotten is meant to apply to information that is no longer relevant but disproportionately impacts a person. “Spent convictions are rather different. The right of people to rehabilitation is an important one.”The Court will have to balance the public’s right to access the historical record, the precise impacts on the person, and the public interest.”Both men were challenging Google’s refusal to remove some links which contained information about their criminal past.Their claims were brought under data protection law and for “misuse of private information”The “right to be forgotten” was established in 2014 when the European Court of Justice said links to irrelevant and outdated material should be erased from searches on request. The Court will have to balance the public’s right to access the historical record, the precise impacts on the person, and the public interestJim Killock, executive director of the Open Rights Group Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

A “major incident” was declared on Saturday after high winds caused two large-scale Lancashire moorland fires to merge near communication masts.The flames have spread to Grade II- listed Rivington Terraced Gardens, which received £3.4 million of lottery funding only two years ago for improvements.Seven square miles of land between Tameside and Oldham were alight, covering the Greater Manchester region in a thick cloud of smoke and ash. Helicopters were immediately called to the scene to soak nearby woodland and smouldering hot spots to prevent them from burning out of control.Now, the army has been called in to assist fire crews amid fears that the wildfires could spread at a faster rate because of the recent dry, hot weather.Paul Etches, Head of Prevention at Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, has warned that the moorland fires were “not going away” and will need “many more days of intense sweat and effort” to extinguish them.“Our firefighters are tired but optimistic that we continue to make good progress,” he said.Fire brigades from all over the country, including Nottinghamshire, Humberside , Tyne and Wear amd Warwickshire have travelled to the North-East to help with the effort.

The army continue to assist the police and fire servicesCredit:Danny Lawson/PA Arsonists have been spotted lighting wildfires by a police helicopter as they continue to dig trenches to protect threatened homes.The authorities caught the individuals lighting fires near Bolton, as firefighters continued to battle the “major incident wildfire” in the Lancashire moorland that has been raging for the last five days.Crews remained at Winter Hill, near Bolton, overnight to launch a “large-scale attack” against the “rapidly developing, aggressive fire” which is endangering nearby properties.While patrolling the area, several people were spotted setting grass alight by Healey Nab in Greater Manchester by a police helicopter.Tony Crook from Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service told Sky News: “As they’ve been trying to extinguish the fire, people have been seen lighting other grass fires in the vicinity. “Police are now attending the scene, to try to apprehend those arsonists. It absolutely astounds me.”A 22-year-old man, from Bolton, was arrested on 29 June on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life, and has since been released under investigation.Firefighters had already spent five days tackling the huge moor fire near Manchester when two new fires broke out on Thursday, and a third on Sunday.Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service has announced that it has increased the number of fire engines at the scene from 17 to 22 to tackle the blaze.
Google Maps has already made taking the bus a little easier, and now its looking to do something similar for driving electric cars. You can now use Maps to search for nearby EV charging stations.All you need to do is search using the term “ev charging station” in addition to the area you’re in, which will bring up a list of any nearby stations. Google says it’s been adding information over the past few months, but, as always, will continue to update to make the service as accurate as possible.“We’d like to continue adding more charging stations to Google Maps,” Google’s Cynthia Yeung wrote on the official blog, “so we’re excited that our friends over at the the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are working to make more data available.”The company is also reaching out to car manufacturers, as well as charging station manufacturers and installers to help with the updates.
Haut-débit : la France favorable au forfait social à 20 eurosFrance – Dans sa politique de développement du numérique, le Premier ministre François Fillon s’est déclaré favorable à un forfait social de 20 euros pour un abonnement haut-débit. L’Arcep abonde en ce sens.Dans le cadre du développement de la fibre optique, François Fillon souhaite instaurer un forfait social pour les plus démunis : “Internet est devenu un outil essentiel au même titre que l’électricité, y accéder à un tarif abordable et à haut débit est un impératif de justice sociale. J’ai demandé au ministre de l’Industrie de mener les consultations afin de permettre d’offrir à tous la faculté de mettre en place une telle offre.” Le Premier ministre a sollicité les opérateurs afin qu’ils soient en mesure de lancer une offre d’ici six mois. Selon une étude, seuls 22% des foyers gagnant moins de 900 euros par mois jouissent d’une box. L’Arcep, le régulateur des communications en France, juge que le tarif social sur la téléphonie fixe semble “de moins en moins pertinent et qu’il conviendrait de le porter sur des offres multi-services.”Le 19 janvier 2010 à 12:12 • Emmanuel Perrin
NASA Makes Ultima Thule ‘Pop’ in Artsy 3D ImagesNew Horizons Snaps Sharp Images of Ultima Thule’s Surface Stay on target What’s more rock-and-roll than an interplanetary space probe?Queen lead guitarist Brian May this week announced plans to release a musical tribute to NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft.On Jan. 1, 2019, the ship will visit the most remote world ever explored by humankind: “(486958) 2014 MU69,” also known as Ultima Thule.At the same time, May will debut a fresh solo track (appropriately titled “New Horizons”) from the Goddard Space Flight Center.The song—May’s first official solo single in more than two decades—is the guitarist’s personal tribute to NASA’s ongoing mission.“This project has energized me in a new way,” May said in a statement. “It’s been an exciting challenge to bring two sides of my life together—astronomy and music.”Known chiefly for his contributions to one of the greatest bands of all time, May is also an acclaimed scientist.After graduating from Imperial College London with a degree in physics, he began working toward a PhD. But when Queen hit it big in 1974, May abandoned his doctoral studies to become part of musical history.Brian May’s “New Horizons” track will debut Jan. 1 (via BrianMay.com)He returned to Imperial College in the fall of 2006, and completed his PhD some 37 years after it began.May has since served as Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University for six years, had an asteroid named after him (52665 Brianmay), and co-founded global awareness campaign Asteroid Day.Earlier this year, New Horizons lead scientist Alan Stern “threw down the glove,” asking May to compose a theme for Ultima Thule, to be played as the probe reached its far-flung destination.“I was inspired by the idea that this is the furthest that the Hand of Man has ever reached,” May said. “To me, it epitomizes the human spirit’s unceasing desire to understand the universe we inhabit.”Launched in 2006 as part of NASA’s New Frontiers program, New Horizons completed its objective—perform a flyby of Pluto—in 2015, and has been cruising through the Kuiper Belt, more than 3.7 billion miles from Earth, ever since.May’s “New Horizons” track celebrates the mission’s 12-year journey, and includes a message from the late Stephen Hawking, congratulating the team on their successful rendezvous with Pluto three years ago.Listen for the song’s global premiere, broadcast live on Jan. 1 at 12:02 a.m. EST—the moment the historic Ultima Thule encounter is confirmed.More on Geek.com:‘Beam’ Your Support To New Horizons Ahead of Historic FlybyNASA Reveals Data Breach, Employees’ Personal Information at RiskYouTuber Builds Glitter Bomb Trap That Farts on Package Thieves

Islamic UniversityIslamic University (IU) authorities on Monday suspended a female student from the university allegedly for making ‘derogatory’ remarks about Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) on Facebook.The suspended student is Mousumi Akter Mou, a final year student of Finance and Banking department of the university.IU acting registrar SM Abdul Latif told UNB that IU vice-chancellor Harun-Ur-Rashid Askari issued the suspension order against Mou as she posted an “abusive comment” on Facebook about BCL, the student wing of ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL).A three-member probe body was also formed with IU Student Adviser professor Rezwanul Islam as its head to look into the matter, he said, adding that further action will be taken after getting the probe report.
Filmmakers are increasingly taking up sensitive issues like rape, molestation and other crimes against women as a backdrop for their stories and say it’s an effort to create awareness. The year 2017 has witnessed this in a big way with Kaabil, Maatr, Mom and Lipstick Under My Burkha to the soon-to-release Bhoomi. The rushes of Omung Kumar’s Bhoomi hint that a father is out to seek revenge for his daughter’s sexual molestation. Kumar says “socially relevant films” are creating awareness and his effort is only to show what is happening in society. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Socially relevant movies work and awareness is generated. We are trying to contribute in whatever small way for the community. It is something that is happening (in society), but people have turned a blind eye (to it).”We are just trying to bring it up front and tell the world that it is happening and something should be done to stop it,” Kumar said, and hoped such “eye-openers” impact people in some way. In the recent past too, these subjects have come up in several films. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveKaabil was the story of a young blind couple and how their life changes after the girl is raped by two men in her own house. Maatr and Mom, both revenge dramas, were stories about how the mothers, played by Raveena Tandon and Sridevi, respectively, take law into their own hands and go after the culprits who raped their daughters.In Lipstick under my Burkha, a bold film about the unbridled dreams of four women trapped in their lives owing to societal norms and stereotypes, depicts one character facing marital rape. Many say that films are a mirror of society, while there are others who blame movies for boosting eve-teasing and other social evils. So are such depictions an attempt to nurture a “more consciously responsible” population or can it have reverse reaction? Leena Yadav, the director of Parched, says films can’t take credit for bringing change in society and neither can society blame films for bringing bad things into structure.”We are feeding off each other. Films come from what is going around you. Secondly, it’s the way you depict anything that can make it vulgar, titillating, beautiful or spiritual. The same thing can be shot in 30 different ways. So when one depicts anything so sensitive (as rape and molestation), you have to be really very careful,” Yadav said.”Something that is from your end may be messaging, but it can also end up titillating and that is really sad. But what to do, we have twisted minds out there. So it is the responsibility of the filmmaker that when they tackle anything like that, it has to be done with utmost care as it is a very tricky thing,” added the director, who is now making a film titled Rajma Chawal.Often, women’s rights bodies target Bollywood for objectifying women. Are they happy with this change of focusing on socially relevant issues?Ranjana Kumari, Director, Centre for Social Research in Delhi, and a women’s rights activist, said, “Filmmakers have been showing all kinds of sexuality and sexual violence because it sells, but that does not mean they should continue doing it to make money. They should also know their social responsibility. In the wake of more gruesome violence, they should feel more responsible.” Social activist Pallabi Ghosh, however, feels that cinema has somehow helped in creating awareness as, after watching films, people are thinking that this is not just theirs but everyone’s issue.

Since 2014, Dr. Andrew Cronyn and Dr. Tracey Kurtzman have gone from seeing one transgender patient to 75. The 75 trans patients the two doctors see at El Rio range in age from 4 to 19.The Southern Arizona Gender Alliance estimates that 1,000-1,500 trans youth live in the Tucson area. Yet, the patients come to the clinic not just from Tucson, but other Arizona cities including Phoenix, Flagstaff, and Safford.Trans youth and pubertyA decade ago, Cronyn would have told these children to wait till they’re 18 to medically transition. However, he would never give that advice now.‘A lot of kids are still getting that advice,’ he told Tucson.com. ‘But what we now know is waiting can put kids through agony in their teen years.’A 2013 report by the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Committee on Adolescence noted that medical treatment for trans youth aren’t standardized, nor approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, the report states this treatment is ‘increasingly supported by medical literature.’Puberty is a rough time for all kids—especially trans kids. Despite article after article about why trans kids should wait to transition, experts in the field, like Cronyn and Kurtzman, think it’s actually beneficial to let transgender youth be who they are early on.Cronyn believes that putting trans youth on puberty blockers and cross-gender hormones may end up improving their mental health.‘Delaying puberty does not hurt the child. It can keep the breasts from developing and the menses from happening, and give the child an opportunity to reach adulthood and then make the decision,’ explains Erin Russ, director of programs for the Southern Arizona Gender Alliance. GAYSTARNEWS- Trans kids guide is ‘inaccurate and deeply damaging’, say LGBT activistsLGBT history will be made at the Rio Olympics, starting with the first same-sex married couple to compete in the gamesRequests for gender reassignment surgeries on the rise in IndiaRead the full article on Gaystarnews: :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/arizona-clinic-become-hub-transgender-youth/ Puberty blockers, which pause the onset of puberty, are entirely reversible. The child can decide to stop them and go through puberty naturally, or to continue their transition with cross-hormone treatments.The doctors at El Rio are regularly in dispute with insurance providers to pay for the appropriate doses of puberty blockers. Though they have been declared safe by the International Endocrine Society, they can cost up to $30,000 [£21,296; €24,393] per year if insurance won’t pay.First trans patientThe first trans patient seen at the El Rio clinic was an 8-year-old trans boy. He had left his previous doctor for insisting that he was a girl since he was born with a vagina.‘It was almost unbelievable. The child had chronic medical issues that weren’t being dealt with because the provider was so focused on the transgender part,’ Cronyn recalls.After this, word got out to other trans children and their families that Cronyn was supportive and open to helping transgender youth. This led to more transgender kids seeking treatment at El Rio.Cronyn cares for trans patients with three simple steps that he now trains other medical providers to use, too. They include calling the patient by their preferred name (not the name on their official documents), acknowledging the patient’s gender identity, and not looking at the patient’s genitalia unless it’s medically necessary.El Rio leads the wayAnyone hired at El Rio goes through a training course in caring for marginalized populations, including the LGBTI community. In fact, El Rio was listed in the Human Rights Campaign’s 2018 Healthcare Equality Index as one of 418 health organizations leading the country in medical care for LGBTI people.In addition to trans medical care, Cronyn and Kurtzman have also been a resource for families who have questions—such as how a trans boy can join Little League, where they can take their children for haircuts without judgement, where to buy clothes, and how to get legal documentation that reflects their child’s gender identity.‘El Rio made it possible for more families to get medical care for their kids,’ Russ says. ‘Kids now have the opportunity to develop the way they want to.’Got a news tip?

‘This unique fact allows researchers to track the onset and trajectories of issues like bullying that had previously been documented only at later ages,’ Mittleman said.‘In a context where seven states still have laws prohibiting any discussion of LGBTQ issues in schools, it’s been hard for researchers to collect measures of sexual orientation and gender identity from students as part of large-scale, education research programs.’Mittleman’s research fills a gap and will help understand the school experiences of LGBTQ students.‘This research is changing the discourse about LGBTQ students by posing new questions that go beyond a monolithic or gender-neutral view of LGBTQ/sexual minority students, to examine gender and racial difference among these students,’ said George Wimberly, director of professional development and diversity officer for the American Educational Research Association.‘By revealing that sexual minority girls experience harsher school discipline than similar boys, the research suggests that homophobic behavior, discrimination and bullying may vary by gender.‘School practices and policies can be reexamined and readdressed in light of these findings.’Got a news tip?

Students at LHS Lawrence High School. | Photo: LHS Budget Teen girls attracted to other girls are ‘far more likely’ than other students to be suspended or expelled from school. Joel Mittleman from Princeton University released the results based on his analysis of the 15-year-long Fragile Families and Childhood Wellbeing Study.The PhD candidate found same-sex attracted teens have 29% higher odds of experiencing exclusionary discipline.Girls experienced 95% higher odds of discipline while there was no apparent discipline risk for boys.‘The results suggest that sexual orientation itself may shape teens’ experiences in very different ways for girls versus boys,’ Mittleman said in a statement.‘My results are consistent, for example, with recent research showing that sexual minority girls are dramatically overrepresented in the juvenile justice system in a way that sexual minority boys are not.’Mittleman worked out that girls’ rates of discipline could only be explained by parent-reported behavioral problems in 38% of cases. Therefore, the rest of the students had possibly faced discriminatory treatment.No much data on LGBTQ kidsThe Fragile Families study is a vital tool for researchers on LGBTQ students. It is one of the only birth cohort studies in the world that includes information about sexual orientation. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) GAYSTARNEWS- Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Teens use Grindr to find a sense of community, shows the need for more LGBTI youth spacesOne percent of kids aged 9-10 years identify as gay or transgenderGoing to pride at university inspired me to come out as bisexualRead the full article on Gaystarnews: :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/lesbian-bi-girls-likely-get-expelled-suspended-school/

The RadiForce RX850 is the successor of the RadiForce RX840-MG released last year, which was the first 8-megapixel monitor for multi-modality use.EIZO’s 8 megapixel monitors act as effective replacements for multi-monitor setups for a smoother, more user-friendly environment when viewing numerous medical applications at once on a single screen. This allows medical professionals to conveniently view images side-by-side without the obtrusive bezels typically found in a multi-monitor environment.The RadiForce RX850’s super high-resolution screen is capable of displaying 8 megapixels of information with an improved pixel pitch of 0.1704 mm, allowing users to view medical images in exceptional detail across its 31.1-inch screen. This makes it ideal for a variety of modalities including digital mammography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound. The monitor also offers an increased high contrast ratio of 1450:1 to accurately render finer details in high-resolution images.The RadiForce RX850 guarantees 20,000 hours of usage time when used at the recommended brightness of 500 cd/m2.Designed to take up significantly less space than its predecessor, the monitor allows 8 megapixels of detailed information to be viewed more easily across a smaller screen. To keep work space efficient, the monitor’s width, height, and depth were reduced by 149 mm, 97 mm, and 27 mm respectively – a 37 percent difference when compared with the previous model. The reduced screen size also contributes to less head and eye movement, making the RadiForce RX850 more suitable for comfortably viewing medical data.The thinner, black front bezels are ideal for viewing the screen in dark reading rooms, making it easier to focus on images, while the original white stripe design around the sides of the monitor presents a fresh, clean aesthetic to promote a comfortable, user-friendly environment.The RadiForce RX850 will be available from May 2014.

PHILADELPHIA – Bill Cosby performed in public for the first time since a sex abuse scandal embroiled him in 2015, joking that he “used to be a comedian” and playing with a jazz band in his hometown as a retrial looms in his criminal sexual assault case.The 80-year-old entertainer took the stage for about an hour Monday night at a Philadelphia jazz club for his first show since May 2015. Before a friendly crowd, he told stories, honoured old friends and finished by leading the band in a set, first using his mouth to scat in place of a missing horn section and then taking a turn at the drums.Cosby, handing the drumsticks off to the bass player’s 11-year-old son, asked if the boy knew who he was and then told him.“I used to be a comedian,” Cosby deadpanned.Cosby reminisced about his childhood, telling the crowd about how when he was 4 he grilled a relative about the impending birth of his brother. He mimicked his Uncle William, who took a swig from a cocktail before answering every question — including whether a stork was really delivering the baby to his parents.Afterward, Cosby nearly dropped a glass jar he was using as a prop, prompting a “Whoa!” from the crowd.Cosby, who’s legally blind, seized on the moment.“Let me tell you something about people talking to blind people, you sighted people,” Cosby said. “If you see a blind person walking into a pole or something, if you speak perfect English, there’s a word called ‘Stop!’ Not ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!’“You laugh when blind people walk into things,” he continued. “And guess what: Blind people laugh when sighted people fall down!”Cosby arrived at the jazz club on the arm of his spokesman, Andrew Wyatt. He wore a grey hoodie bearing the phrase “Hello Friend,” something his late son, Ennis Cosby, often would say.He posed for photos with friends, including a couple he honoured at the start of his set. They all grew up in the same public housing complex.Cosby said he decided to make his return to the stage because of his friends.“I came here tonight to enjoy being with my friends and the musicians and the people who came,” he said after the show.He declined to discuss his upcoming retrial in a sexual assault case.During the show, the receptive crowd applauded and laughed along with Cosby’s jokes, a far cry from how his last performances went. His last comedy tour ended amid protests as about 60 women were coming forward to accuse him of drugging and molesting them over five decades, something he has denied.Cosby is scheduled for an April 2 retrial on charges he drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. He has pleaded not guilty and remains free on bail. His first trial ended with a hung jury last year. Jury selection for his retrial will start March 29.Cosby’s spokesman notified reporters of the comedy performance about two hours before he was to take the stage at the LaRose Jazz Club. The show was part of a program honouring jazz musician Tony Williams.Outside the jazz club there was one protester, a woman who frequently hounded Cosby at his trial last year. She played Helen Reddy’s song “I Am Woman” on a loop and held up a sign that said, “Perseverance to all survivors.”The jazz club performance is Cosby’s latest step back into the spotlight he’s mostly shied from since his December 2015 arrest.Two weeks ago, Cosby invited reporters to tag along as he ate dinner with old friends at a Philadelphia restaurant.Over the weekend, Cosby’s social media accounts featured photos of him visiting a barber and a cafe in the area and showing support for the Philadelphia Eagles, who won Sunday’s NFC Championship game against the Minnesota Vikings and secured a spot in the Super Bowl.___This story has been corrected to show the arrest was in 2015, not 2005. by Michael Sisak, The Associated Press Posted Jan 22, 2018 12:29 pm PDT Last Updated Jan 23, 2018 at 12:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Bill Cosby performs comedy at the LaRose Jazz Club in Philadelphia on Monday, Jan. 22, 2018.
