Disabilities caucus condemns attempted execution of Mumia by medical neglect

first_imgWadiya Jamal and Mumia Abu-JamalThe People with Disabilities Caucus of the People’s Power Assembly joins the international progressive community in condemning the attempted execution by medical neglect of Mumia Abu-Jamal.Writing from behind the walls of the prison-industrial complex, internationally renowned political prisoner and journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal is known for exposing the racist foundation of capitalism, from mass incarceration of people of color in for-profit prisons to U.S. war and intervention abroad.Unjustly convicted of killing a police officer, Mumia has spent 30 years in prison, until recently in solitary confinement on Pennsylvania’s Death Row. His demand for a new trial and freedom is supported by heads of state and prominent politicians in France, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America and by Nobel laureates Nelson Mandela, Toni Morrison, Desmond Tutu and others.Mumia is now seriously ill. He is suffering from life-threatening diabetes, full body skin disease, weight loss of 80 pounds in the last two to three months, extreme dehydration, multiple neurological symptoms, [including] uncontrollable shaking, slurred speech and loss of memory with fugue states. He now uses a wheelchair. Mumia’s family and friends hold the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections directly responsible for neglect, malpractice and inadequately addressing the alarming deterioration of his health. Only if he is released will he be able to get the proper medical care to give him a chance at recovery.Prisons are a disability issue. Mass incarceration has resulted in the jailing of people with mental, developmental, emotional and physical disabilities in disproportionately high numbers. Many are unjustly incarcerated. Once in jail, they often receive inadequate treatment for their disability or no treatment at all. This violates Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which guarantees prisoners with disabilities the right to adequate health care.As activists in the disability rights movement, we demand that Mumia, and all prisoners with disabilities, be immediately granted full medical rights, as protected by the ADA.We demand that Mumia be able to see a doctor of his choice. We demand that Mumia Abu-Jamal, who has been imprisoned for decades for a crime he never committed, be released immediately.We urge you to join us in phoning and emailing:• Secretary of the Department of Corrections, John Wetzel, to demand that Mumia be treated by a doctor of his choice. 717-728-2573; [email protected] pa.gov• Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to demand that the state halt attempts to execute Mumia by medical neglect. 717-787-2500; fax 717-772-8284; [email protected] also urge you to circulate this statement as widely as possible.People with Disabilities Caucus of the People’s Power AssemblyPeoplespowerassemblies.org; 212-633-6646.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Kavanaugh secured the support needed to win Senate confirmation to the Supreme Court.The Senate voted Friday 51 to 49 to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination.Three of the four undecided votes went to Kavanaugh’s favor coming from two Republicans, Sens. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) and Susan Collins (Maine), and one Democrat, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska).After reading the FBI report Thursday, both Republican senators said they’d “seen no additional corroborating information” to go along with Dr. Ford’s testimony.Just when we thought it was over, some votes could still change later on Friday.Kavanaugh acknowledges demeanor in Senate testimonySupreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh acknowledged that he shouldn’t have said some things in his testimony to the Senate in an op-ed published Thursday.Kavanaugh said he understands how questions about his demeanor and judicial temperament could be raised after the way he acted. But he argues that he will be an impartial and even-tempered justice.According to the Washington Post, his defense comes after 2,400 law professors from different political parties signed a letter to the Senate that argued for Kavanaugh’s lack of “judicial temperament.”Kavanaugh wanted to it make clear that the allegations against him were undue and wrongful.But some like Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) said it was too little too late to make a statement.What the Kavanaugh allegations mean for the midtermsRepublicans never expected the backlash and controversy that surrounded Kavanaugh’s nomination on July 9.What seemed like a sure thing confirmation is now making the party nervous. But something else surprising has happened in light of all of this: Republicans are more excited to vote in the midterms.A NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll said Republicans decreased their enthusiasm deficit from 10 to 2 points since July.According to CNN, republican leaders have noticed this spurt of enthusiasm and are using it to ensure the maximum amount of voters show up to the polls on Nov. 6.Trump tax investigation continuesNew York City officials said Thursday they have joined state regulators in the investigation of the Trump family tax schemes.Earlier this week, it was revealed that Trump had participated in shady things like outright fraud and tax evasion in the 1990s.The statute of limitation on any of these potential crimes uncovered have long expired, but this investigation will decide whether other penalties like fines are merited.U.S. puts sanctions on Turkish companyThe U.S. government imposed sanctions on a Turkish company for doing business with North Korea.S.I.A. Falcon International Group was accused of trading luxury goods and weapons with North Korea and ignoring previous sanctions from the U.S. and the United Nations.This is sending a strong message to Kim Jong Un right before the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to North Korea this weekend.The Trump administration wants to make clear its intentions to put pressure on North Korea to get rid of its nuclear missile programs.The move is also highlighting the on-again off-again relationship with Turkey, a NATO country.U.S. officials charge Russian spy agency of attacksThe U.S. government charged seven Russian spies with a variety of crimes.From widespread hacking that leaves no one safe to doping, poisoning, and downing of a plane, these individuals aren’t getting off easy.Russian officials from the intelligence agency, GRU, have denied these active measures and said that the U.S. has some shady business of its own: a biological program using toxic bugs as weapons.This is just one instance of the many accounts of Russian international crimes.

Motorists angry at new price plan at city car park

Motorists angry at new price plan at city car park

first_imgEmail CITY centre shoppers have reacted angrily to the new price plan at the Q car park at Harveys Quay, where motorists are now charged at 15 minute intervals.In a recent article The Limerick Post revealed the prices at various multi-story carparks around the city, and, with their new price plan of .60 cent per 15 minutes, the Q facility at Dunnes on Henry Street, emerged as the most expensive in the city, at 2.40 euro per hour.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A company representative told The Post that the rate reduced to two euro per hour, after the first three hours.Teresa Moloney, from Thomondgate, now living in Kilmore, was outraged when she discovered that the charge had increased by 50 cent from the previous rate of 1.90 euro per hour.“I couldn’t believe they would increase the price by so much and try to make out that they were doing us a favour by reducing it from 2.40 to two euro after the first 3 hours. That is still extortionate”, Teresa told The Post.“Nobody would come into town, park and spend just 15 minutes there. Also, if you are one minute over that you have to pay for the next 15, so if you are there for, say, just 31 minutes it would cost 1.80 euro!“The location suits me perfectly and, as a woman in my 60’s, I am not a fan of having to walk too far, but I want to boycott the place now. I would be prepared to march in protest over the cost”.Another angry Q car park customer was Mairéad Portley, who told The Post that she would be reluctant to shop in the city centre in future due to the price of parking there.She said: “To my horror last Friday, I noticed that Q car park at Dunnes had changed its billing system to 15 minute intervals.“I parked there from 11 am to 2.15 pm to enjoy some lunch and shopping in the city centre. The cost of this parking was 9.20 euro, an incredible rip off.“I, for one, will never park here again and will be most reluctant to shop in the city in future.“While in France recently, I parked in the city centre of Dijon, where it was 50 cent per hour. In essence, an hour parking in the Q car park is now 2.40, which compares negatively against other carparks in the city.“In recessionary times, I would expect prices to drop rather than increase”.In light of the comments received from unhappy customers, The Limerick Post contacted the headquarters of Q car parks in Dublin, seeking an explanation for the change in the price plan.Breda Leonard, head of marketing at the company, told us: “The price change was introduced at the beginning of August after we had been approached by customers and retailers who asked us to consider a 15 minute interval charge.“The motivation behind their request was to allow customers the opportunity to pay solely for the time they spent shopping. Previously, if an individual spent one hour and five minutes in the car park they would be charged for two hours. The 15 minute interval charge is more flexible and in current times, everyone is more conscious of spending.“We have discovered by chatting to customers that 62 per cent of them have made savings since we introduced the change. The plan was rolled out in Cork, Limerick, Galway and Dublin, but Limerick is the only place where we have received predominantly negative feedback.Ms. Leonard stated that a survey with a number of questions would be circulated to the carparks, and concluded that Q car parks would be happy to revert back to the hourly charge if that is what the majority of customers wanted.There is, as of yet, no date set for when the final decision on prices at the car park will be made.

Reward grows to $75,000 in hunt for killer of 7-year-old Texas girl as investigators look for links to other shootings

Reward grows to $75,000 in hunt for killer of 7-year-old Texas girl as investigators look for links to other shootings

first_imgChalabala/iStock(HOUSTON) — A reward for information leading to the arrest of the killer of a 7-year-old Texas girl has been raised to $75,000 as investigators analyzed and compared shell casings from the crime scene to those of unsolved shootings in the Houston area.Law enforcement officers are combing northeast Houston where a suspect, described by investigators as a white man driving a red pickup truck, opened fire on an African-American family’s car, killing Jazmine Barnes and wounding her mother, LaPorsha Washington.An official briefed on the investigation told ABC News Thursday that federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are comparing shell casings from Jazmine’s shooting to those in other cases to see if there are any connections.On Wednesday, Houston civil rights activists and religious leaders raised the specter that the random attack on Jazmine and her family was a hate crime and noted its similarities with an unsolved shooting in 2017 that left an African-American man seriously wounded.A’Vonta Williams, now 22, was shot in an apparently random attack on Aug. 30, 2017, as he drove his car about six miles from where Jazmine was shot. Officials said Williams was shot by a white man driving a pickup truck.Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said Wednesday that investigators from his agency are taking a fresh look at Williams’ shooting to see if anything was missed.Gonzalez said Jazmine’s sisters, who were in the car when she was shot, are working with investigators to come up with a composite sketch of the suspect they hope to release to the public.Meanwhile, social justice activist and journalist Shaun King announced on Twitter Thursday morning that the reward for information leading to an arrest of Jazmine’s killer has been raised from $50,000 to $75,000.“We will not stop until we find this man and bring him to justice,” tweeted King, a writer-in-residence at Harvard Law School’s Fair Punishment Project.The case has also prompted celebrities to get involved in the hunt for the killer.“Find him. This evil monster,” actress Gabrielle Union tweeted.Actress Olivia Wilde also took to Twitter to bring attention to the manhunt, writing, “Please help find this murderer if you can.”Meanwhile, Jazmine’s family announced that a funeral and balloon release for the little girl will be held on Tuesday at noon at the Green House International Church in Houston.Local activists are also planning to hold a community rally at noon on Saturday outside a Walmart close to where Jazmine was shot.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Psychology during the expeditions of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration

Psychology during the expeditions of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration

first_imgThe psychology of Antarctic explorers and groups in Antarctic bases has been much studied in recent years, and current knowledge has been summarized in a review by Palinkas and Suedenfeld (2008). There was no formal psychological research during the heroic age of Antarctic exploration, but a number of the doctors and non-medical personnel on the expeditions were keen observers of the psychological aspects of the expeditions and wrote about them. In this paper, I describe their understanding of the psychology of Antarctic exploration. By comparing this with current knowledge, it is clear that most of what has been found by formal study was known to the explorers of the heroic age.last_img

‘Country over company’: College of the Ozarks will strip athletes of Nike branding

‘Country over company’: College of the Ozarks will strip athletes of Nike branding

first_imgSeptember 6, 2018 /Sports News – National ‘Country over company’: College of the Ozarks will strip athletes of Nike branding Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailYu Chun Christopher Wong/S3studio/Getty Images(POINT LOOKOUT, Mo.) — The College of the Ozarks, a private Christian school in Point Lookout, Missouri, has announced plans to strip all student-athletes of Nike branding in response to the sportswear company’s controversial 30th anniversary “Just Do It” ad campaign, which features former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.“In their new ad campaign, we believe Nike executives are promoting an attitude of division and disrespect toward America,” College of the Ozarks President Jerry C. Davis said in a statement on Wednesday, according to ABC News affiliate KMBC.The college said it will “choose its country over company,” and remove all athletic uniforms that were bought from Nike as well as any clothing containing its emblems.“If Nike is ashamed of America, we are ashamed of them,” the statement continued. “We also believe that those who know what sacrifice is all about are more likely to be wearing a military uniform than an athletic uniform.”Kaepernick was the first athlete to kneel during the “Star Spangled Banner,” which is played before NFL games, in protest of police brutality against black people and people of color. He hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2016. Several other professional athletes in the NFL and elsewhere have knelt during the national anthem in solidarity since then, sparking intense political debate across the country.The College of the Ozarks has made its stance on the issue clear since at least October 2017, when it revised its contracts for competitions in all sports, adding a stipulation that all players and coaches show respect for the American flag and national anthem, according to the publication Ozarks Sports Zone.The Nike ad is scheduled to air during Thursday’s regular season NFL kickoff game between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles. Kaepernick tweeted a preview for the ad on Monday, featuring his face overlaid by a slogan: “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” On Wednesday, he tweeted the full commercial.Kaepernick’s initial tweet prompted many people on the internet to threaten to boycott Nike, as well as throw away or burn any Nike apparel they owned. Similar to College of the Ozarks, one man claimed that Nike was forcing him to choose between his “favorite shoes” and his country.Others predicted that Nike’s strategy would backfire.“Nike’s campaign will generate both attention and discussion, which is, arguably, one of its central aims,” Neil Saunders, managing director of data and analytics firm Global Data, previously told ABC News. “However, it is also a risky strategy in that it addresses, and appears to take sides on, a highly politicized issue. This means it could ultimately alienate and lose customers, which is not the purpose of a marketing campaign.”The company, however, has already benefited from the uproar that the Kaepernick ad has created. In less than 24 hours after first releasing the ad on Twitter, the company received over $43 million worth of media exposure, Bloomberg reported.NFL executive vice president of communications and public affairs Jocelyn Moore said in a statement on Tuesday, “The National Football League believes in dialogue, understanding and unity. We embrace the role and responsibility of everyone involved with this game to promote meaningful, positive change in our communities. The social justice issues that Colin and other professional athletes have raised deserve our attention and action.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
