  • Justice for Philando Castile!

    first_imgMillions of people saw the sickening video of Philando Castile bleeding to death in his car on July 6, 2016. Police officer Jeronimo Yanez shot at the Black man seven times after stopping him in Falcon Heights, Minn., a suburb of St. Paul.Millions heard Castile’s friend Diamond Reynolds scream, “Please don’t tell me that he’s gone. Please officer don’t tell me that you just did this to him. He was just getting his license and registration, sir.” (Associated Press, July 7, 2016)And now millions of people are outraged that on June 16 Yanez was found “not guilty” of second-degree manslaughter and two counts of dangerous discharge of a firearm.Both Diamond Reynolds and her four-year-old daughter, who were in the car, could have been killed, too. After seeing her boyfriend shot, Reynolds was handcuffed by police.“The system continues to fail black people,” said Valerie Castile, the mother of Philando Castile. (Huffington Post, June 16) One hundred sixty years after the U.S. Supreme Court’s infamous Dred Scott decision, Black people still have, in the words of the ruling, “no rights which the white man was bound to respect.”The night of the verdict over 2,000 people took to the streets of St. Paul, starting at the state Capitol. The #Justice4Philando Emergency Unity Response was initiated by many local organizations. (Fight Back News, June 16)People blocked Interstate 94 and the light rail line. “No justice, no peace, prosecute the police” was one of the chants. Eighteen people were arrested. (CNN, June 16)Six hundred people marched through Harlem, N.Y., on June 17. They started at 116th Street and Malcolm X Boulevard and finally reached Trump Tower in midtown. New York police continually tried to block the demonstrators.Black Teamster lives matterPhilando Castile was a worker and member of Teamsters Local 320. He had been employed in St. Paul public school cafeterias for 14 years. At the time of his assassination, Castile was nutrition services supervisor at the J.J. Hill Montessori Magnet School.Children loved Philando. “He was [as] much a teacher than any teacher in that building,” said Joan Edman, a retired worker at the school. “He remembered their names. He remembered who couldn’t have milk. He knew what they could have to eat and what they couldn’t,” said Edman, who added that “five hundred real children are directly impacted.”“He was just a nice, caring person who worked at the school, who should not be dead,” said Andrew Karre, whose 8-year-old son attends the Montessori school. (Time, July 7, 2016)None of this mattered to police, who stopped Philando Castile 52 times in 14 years. (New York Daily News, July 9, 2016) Driving while Black is a real offense, and for Castile it carried the death penalty.‘Whites only’ Second AmendmentPhilando Castile told officer Yanez that he had a gun which he was licensed to carry. (Chicago Tribune, July 14, 2016) As Castile was complying with the officer’s request for identification, Yanez killed him.Don’t African Americans have the Second Amendment right to possess firearms?In fact, Black people are denied even the right to self-defense. Seventeen-year-old Black sharecropper Samuel Osborne was confronted in his South Carolina shack by white landlord William Walker on Aug. 17, 1941. Walker was drunk and carrying a .32 caliber pistol.In justified fear for his life, Osborne reached for his rifle and killed his cracker boss. Osborne’s right to self-defense didn’t matter to Judge Strom Thurmond, who sentenced Osborne to the electric chair. (Lars-Eric Nelson column, New York Daily News, Jan 8, 1999)Super-racist Thurmond would later be elected South Carolina governor and also spend 46 years in the U.S. Senate. Thurmond’s support was vital to putting Richard Nixon in the White House.Every time cops kill an unarmed person they claim they are in fear for their lives. But killing a drunken racist who was pointing a gun at him sent Samuel Osborne to the electric chair. The Black teenager was executed on Nov. 19, 1943.Four months later, the Palmetto State electrocuted 14-year-old Black child George Junius Stinney, whose trial on phony murder charges lasted just two hours.California Gov. Ronald Reagan signed the Mulford Act in 1967, banning the carrying of guns. The National Rifle Association was silent. This law was aimed to smash the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, as it was called at the time. Black Panthers would carry a law book in one hand and an unloaded shotgun in the other while observing police.Claiming that they were armed and dangerous was the excuse for police to kill Black Panther Party members. Among the victims were Fred Hampton and Mark Clark, who were murdered in their beds in Chicago on Dec. 4, 1969.Nearly 50 years later, poor people aren’t supposed to have First Amendment free speech rights, either. State legislators in Arizona and Texas last year introduced bills to bar video recording of police. (Arizona Republic, Jan. 12, 2016)What’s needed? Millions in the streetsMinnesota is considered a liberal state. But between 2000 and June 2016 — that is, before Philando Castile’s death — 147 people were killed by Minnesota police. (Star Tribune, June 7, 2016)The biggest mass hanging in U.S. history occurred in Mankato, Minn., on Dec. 26, 1862, when 38 Indigenous Santee men were executed. ( attacking Somali immigrants living in Minnesota, Donald Trump came within 44,000 votes of winning the Gopher State.Racism is rejected by many workers in Minnesota who are appalled by the killer of Philando Castile going free. “Philando was a good man who is missed by the people who loved him and by hundreds of children and educators in the St. Paul Public Schools,” said President Denise Specht of Education Minnesota, a labor group affiliated with the AFL-CIO.“More than 100,000 Minnesota children who look like Philando will wake up tomorrow in a society that still treats them far differently than white children,” said Specht. Teamsters Local 320 proudly declared its member Philando Castile to be a union brother.But where is the statement by Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa Jr.? And why is AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka silent? Stopping racist police killings is a labor issue.A movement of millions is needed to stop the racist police. Every protest is a step toward building it.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

  • Why Aren’t More Renters Becoming Buyers?

    first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribe The Zillow Real Estate Market Report for February has recorded national median rent as accelerating at its fastest pace in 21 months. Over the past year, U.S. median rent rose 2.8 percent, reaching a median of $1,445. Attributed to this pattern is the lack of for-sale inventory, as well as the lower affordability of homes for buyers due to rising prices and mortgage rates. “Rental appreciation slowed between 2015 and mid-2017, but is once again picking up steam, re-accelerating over the past nine months,” said Aaron Terrazas Senior Economist at Zillow.Cities with the fastest appreciating rental markets are along the West Coast, in cities such as Sacramento and Riverside, California, and Seattle, Washington. This marks the seventh month in a row that Sacramento has topped the list of median rent market acceleration, experiencing rental growth of more than 8 percent since last February to $1,849. In addition to locations along the West Coast, areas such as Minneapolis and Atlanta are also rising in the market, both reporting about a 4.5 appreciation rate over the last year. “For-sale inventory is tight, and with home prices continuing their rapid climb, it’s becoming more and more difficult for renters to become owners, forcing them to rent longer than they otherwise would have,” Terrazas said. “Searching for the ‘right’ home has become a drawn-out affair, and rising prices require more savings for a down payment. Were it not for strong new apartment construction over the past half-decade, rental appreciation would be even stronger than it is now.”For the year ending in February 2018, home values rose 7.6 percent to a median of $210,200.  Over the past nine months, home value growth has fluctuated in the range of 7.2 percent to 7.6 percent annually. San Jose, California, Las Vegas, and Seattle reported the greatest home value growth, with San Jose rising more than 26 percent in the year-over-year analysis, reaching a median home value of $1,252,400, followed by Las Vegas with an increase of nearly 16 percent, and Seattle with an increase of 14 percent.Buyers will have 10.3 percent fewer homes to choose from this year, a pattern of decline that has continued every month since February 2015. Declines have accelerated into the double digits in nine of the past ten months. San Jose, Las Vegas, and Columbus, Ohio are reporting the greatest drop in inventory. Mortgage rates also reached their highest levels since April 3, 2014, with rates increasing throughout February. Rates opened the month at 4.06 and ended at 4.26 with a mid-month high of 4.28 percent.

  • St. Louis County to ban domestic violence offenders from carrying concealed guns

    first_imgRdlamkin/iStock(ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo.) — People with domestic violence convictions and orders of protection against them will soon be banned from carrying concealed guns in St. Louis County, Missouri, according to a vote this week from the county council that was sharply split along party and gender lines.The four women on the council who are all Democrats, voted yes at Tuesday’s meeting, while the three men on the council, who are all Republicans, voted no.Councilman Tim Fitch said at the meeting that the bill would “take a federal felony charge and make it an ordinance violation,” or essentially a “ticket.”“While it may look good on a campaign brochure,” Fitch said, “it’s going the opposite direction.”In response to Fitch, Councilwoman Kelli Dunaway conceded that passing this bill would make an ordinance that wouldn’t have the same penalties as a federal crime.But Dunaway stressed, “the problem is, these particular federal crimes do not get prosecuted,” because federal prosecutors are “too busy with much bigger issues.”“If we can hand this law over to the county government, it’s more likely to be prosecuted,” Dunaway said.“We’d like to do a whole lot more to protect people from gun violence,” Dunaway said. “Even though this doesn’t go far enough, I think it’s the first step in the right direction.”Councilwoman Rochelle Walton Gray argued that the ordinance furthers the federal law because “it sends a message to our prosecutors.”But Councilman Ernie Trakas said he believes the bill “encroaches” on the 2nd Amendment, telling the council at Tuesday’s meeting, “this bill overreaches, is not well thought out, and I believe it violates state law.”Councilman Mark Harder voted no, and at the meeting called the bill “flawed.”“If we’re going to tackle domestic violence in St Louis County — and we should — this does not go near far enough to act as a deterrent to domestic violence,” Harder said.Councilwoman Lisa Clancy, chair of the county council, introduced the bill.“Like probably a lot of other states, Missouri’s got some pretty tight restrictions” on how local government regulates guns, Clancy told ABC News on Thursday. She calls this bill the best steps to address gun violence and domestic violence at the local level.“I wish the bill could go further, but it can’t at this time until we change some state laws,” she said.Clancy said St. Louis County Executive Sam Page is expected to sign the law in the next few weeks.She said it was co-sponsored by the other women on the county council and that the process included involvement from the county executive and domestic violence advocates.Clancy said Kansas City’s city council has already passed a similar bill and lawmakers with the city of St. Louis are working though a similar bill of their own.

  • Arkansas’ near-total abortion ban certain to face legal showdown

    first_imgdlewis33/iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(LITTLE ROCK, Ark.) — Arkansas’ latest move to restrict abortion access for its residents will likely head to court as proponents and opponents of a new law debate over the future of reproductive rights in the state.Both sides of the issue contend that the legal battle could have larger implications for the rest of the country.Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed SB 6, which passed in the state legislature and prohibits abortion in all cases except to save the life of the mother. Cases involving rapes and incest are not considered exceptions under the law, a move that Hutchinson said in a statement he did not agree with.The governor, nonetheless, advocated for the bill, which also charges anyone who performs a non-approved abortion with a felony punishable up to 10 years in prison.Hutchinson acknowledged the bill was made to challenge Roe v. Wade.“SB6 is in contradiction of binding precedents of the U.S. Supreme Court, but it is the intent of the legislation to set the stage for the Supreme Court overturning current case law,” Hutchinson said in a statement following the bill’s signing.Several reproductive rights advocacy groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas, the Guttmacher Institute and NARAL Pro-Choice America, immediately condemned the bill and noted that the state has spent the last couple of years chipping away access to safe abortions.Without any open clinics in the state, the average one-way driving distance to an abortion clinic for Arkansas women would be 128 miles, according to research from the Guttmacher Institute.Holly Dickson, executive director of the ACLU of Arkansas, said in a statement that her organization will see the governor in court.“This extreme abortion ban is cruel and unconstitutional, and it will have accomplished nothing but cause stress for patients while ignoring the pressing challenges Arkansans face,” she said in a statement.The law is slated to go into effect at the end of August, but it is likely to be the first of many state laws that are aimed at curtailing abortion access.There were 384 anti-abortion provisions introduced in 43 states in January and February, according to an analysis by the Guttmacher Institute, and several states have pressed on with their legislative packages.The South Dakota Legislature passed a bill this week that would ban abortions due to a Down syndrome diagnosis and would impose a criminal felony on the provider. A bill approved by Arizona state leaders would ban abortions performed after 20 weeks of pregnancy and charge those who perform such procedures with a felony.The governors of both states have said they will sign the bills.A federal judge has put a hold on a bill that would also restrict abortions in South Carolina after Planned Parenthood sued the state.The bill, which passed in February, requires doctors to perform ultrasounds to check for a heartbeat in the fetus, which can typically be detected about six weeks after conception. If one is detected, the abortion can only be performed if the pregnancy was caused by rape or incest or the mother’s life is in danger.Elizabeth Nash, the Guttmacher Institute’s associate director of state issues, said in a statement that there will likely be more challenges to Roe v. Wade from the state level and urged Congress to take up the issue soon.“Now is the time for Congress to protect against these attacks by creating a federal statutory right to access abortion without medically unnecessary restrictions through the Women’s Health Protection Act,” she said in a statement.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

  • On living in cold water: K-strategies in antarctic benthos

    first_imgComparison of the life-histories of two species pairs of caridean decapods, each pair containing a polar and a more temperate-water species (Chorismus antarcticus (Pfeffer, 1887)/Pandalus montagui Leach, 1814 and Notocrangon antarcticus (Pfeffer, 1887)/ crangon crangon (Linnaeus, 1758), suggested that in each case the polar species was more of a K-strategist than was the temperate species. In particular there were striking differences in brood size, egg weight and maturity of the newly hatched larvae. Measurements of individual annual reproductive effort, RE, as g fresh weight eggs per g fresh weight female indicated that in both species pairs the RE of the polar K-strategist was significantly less than that of the comparable temperate water r-strategist. Results expressing RE as g total egg lipid per g fresh weight female were equivocal. These data are discussed in relation to available autecological information for Anterctic marine invertebrates and it is concluded that many features of the polar benthos are explicable in terms of a general evolution of typical K-strategies. The role of low temperature in the widespread evolution of K-strategies may be crucial; consideration of this leads to a re-appraisal of “cold-adaptation”.last_img read more

  • Dalradian Grampian Group affinity for the Bowmore Sandstone Group, Islay, SW Scotland

    first_imgWhole-rock Sm-Nd model ages of 1601 Ma (lower Laggan Formation) and 1674 Ma (upper Blackrock Formation) suggest a late Palaeoproterozoic, early Mesoproterozoic source for the rnetasediments of the Bowmore Sandstone Group, central Islay, SW Scotland. In situ U-Pb detrital zircon (SIMS) analyses show that the group was deposited after 1003 Ma +/- 19 Ma in a basin dominated by Mesoproterozoic detritus, with some Palaeoproterozoic material and minimal Archaean input. The data are consistent with Laurentian sources, mostly Grenville (possibly including reworked sedimentary material from the southwestern Grenville Province), but with some input from Ketilidian, Labradorian, Pinwarian and Archaean terranes. Previous correlations with the Torridonian and the upper Dalradian are no longer tellable given the paucity of Archaean detritus in the Bowmore Sandstone Group. However, the data are comparable to parts of the Dalradian Grampian Group, in particular, the Glen Spean Subgroup (Upper Grampian Group, Strathtummel succession). It is proposed that the Bowmore Sandstone Group was deposited in an eastern Grampian Group basin, similar to the Strathtummel and Cromdale basins, which are also dominated by Grenville detritus.last_img read more

  • Oxford professor claims NHS could vaccinate Britain in 5 days

    first_imgAccording to Bell, the slow pace at which the NHS is proceedings is a failure of leadership, not of individual nurses and doctors. Image: CDC via As of January 16th, 3,559,179 people in the UK have received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine and 447,261 have received the second dose. The Regius Chair of Medicine at Oxford, Sir John Bell, has commented that the NHS could vaccinate the whole country against COVID-19 in less than a week.  However, the Oxford professor claims NHS bureaucrats are standing in the way, costing the UK many more lives. Bell argues the criteria to volunteer as a vaccine helper is currently too stringent and is one of many things limiting the health services’ effectiveness.   The professor also called for authorities to start treating the pandemic like a war, and that they should drop everything to contain the virus spread.  He highlighted Israel’s vaccine programme, which at times was vaccinating 2% of its population a day, as a role model for the NHS.center_img “The NHS has the theoretical capacity to immunise everybody in five days if they want to, but I don’t get the sense they are really motivated,” Bell told the Times. “I think the frontline medics certainly see it as an emergency – those guys are working harder than anyone I’ve ever seen. They are eye-wateringly good, but you don’t get the [same] sense from the hierarchy in the NHS, the bureaucrats.” “Did you see the list of things you have to do to volunteer to help the inoculation programme? To impose it on people who are just sticking a needle in an arm is bonkers.” Sir John Bell has been approached for comment.last_img read more
