This Ridiculous New Photo Of Baker Mayfield Is Going Viral

first_imgbaker mayfield speaks at browns press conferenceCleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, who was drafted No. 1 overall in this past April’s NFL Draft, hasn’t played a down during a regular season game just yet. But he’s already got a few sponsors lined up – including one for an underwear company called PSD Underwear. The marketing campaign for the product is something, too.The below photo, which has gone viral, shows Mayfield wearing the underwear next to a Rolls Royce. There’s also a tiger involved, for whatever reason.Some are joking that it looks like a scene that was cut from The Hangover. Let’s hope not, for Baker’s sake.Mayfield is apparently giving away 500 free pairs of the underwear, if you’re interested. We assume you don’t get a tiger with it.Excited to announce my partnership with @PSDunderwear! Giving away 500 free pairs today. Tiger not included ?. Give them a follow and shop my collection!— Baker Mayfield (@bakermayfield) August 21, 2018PSD also put out a photo on its Twitter account. It’s Baker and the tiger again.Welcome to the PSD fam @bakermayfield ! Wait till you see his collection…??— PSD Underwear (@PSDunderwear) August 21, 2018Mayfield has looked solid through two preseason games with the Browns, but it’s too early to tell whether he’ll be successful at the next level. Cleveland plans to stick with Tyrod Taylor as its starter heading into the season, so it’s also unclear when Mayfield will get his shot to lead the team.Until then, we’ll just have to get our Baker fill from PSD.last_img read more

Changements au système déducation à venir en septembre

first_img Le travail est en cours pour préparer les autres changements qui entreront en vigueur en septembre, soit : L’année scolaire prend fin le mardi 30 juin mais le ministère de l’Éducation et du Développement de la petite enfance continuera de préparer les changements au système d’éducation qui entreront en vigueur en septembre. « Je souhaite à tous les élèves, à tous les enseignants et à tout le personnel de soutien des écoles de passer un bel été en toute sécurité, a déclaré Karen Casey, la ministre de l’Éducation et du Développement de la petite enfance. Le Ministère, quant à lui, continuera de préparer les changements au système d’éducation qui seront en place dès septembre. » Dans le cadre du Plan d’action en matière d’éducation de la Nouvelle-Écosse, le Ministère procédera au renouvellement, à la reconstruction et à la réorientation du système d’éducation au cours des cinq prochaines années, et il commencera à appliquer certains changements dès le mois de septembre. Le plan est basé sur les commentaires de plus de 19 000 Néo-Écossais, dont des enseignants, des élèves, du personnel de soutien des écoles et des gens des conseils scolaires, des universités et du milieu des affaires. Depuis l’annonce du plan en janvier dernier, le gouvernement a : créé un programme simplifié qui met l’accent sur les mathématiques et la littératie pour les élèves de la 1re à la 3e année; rédigé un code de conduite qui s’appliquera à toutes les écoles et à tous les conseils scolaires; mis fin aux directives sur les devoirs et mené un sondage sur de nouvelles normes pour les devoirs; réaligné la structure du Ministère sur le plan d’action; établi un Centre d’excellence en apprentissage en mars dernier dans le cadre du réalignement du Ministère; ajouté plus d’activités d’apprentissage pratique pour développer des habiletés en technologie, notamment les Labos créatifs; fourni une aide financière ciblée aux conseils scolaires pour des mentors en mathématiques; fourni une aide financière pour appuyer l’intervention précoce auprès des élèves de la 1re à la 3e année; fourni une aide financière aux programmes d’intervention précoce pour résoudre le problème des listes d’attente. la création d’un forum ministériel sur l’excellence en enseignement, la création d’une chaire interuniversitaire de recherche, la création d’un conseil de liaison avec le milieu des affaires, la création d’un groupe de travail de transition composé d’éducateurs des écoles publiques et de représentants des universités et du NSCC. L’une des mesure du plan sera modifiée. Les évaluations provinciales en littératie et en mathématiques pour la 3e et la 8e année continueront pour pouvoir évaluer les changements au programme à l’échelle de la province. Ce changement s’appuie sur les commentaires des enseignants et des administrateurs. « À chaque étape de l’implantation, je continue de demander “Est-ce que c’est dans le meilleur intérêt des éléves?” Si ce n’est pas le cas, nous modifierons la mesure à prendre. Dans le cas des évaluations provinciales, nous croyons qu’il est important de les maintenir pour l’instant afin de voir dans quelle mesure le nouveau programme aide les élèves », a déclaré Mme Casey.

Kevin OLeary says he tried to convince Bernier to quit Conservative race

first_imgOTTAWA – Kevin O’Leary may be gone from the Conservative leadership race, but he doesn’t intend to let himself be forgotten.Instead, the reality TV star and businessman said merger talks were held Thursday between his campaign and Maxime Bernier’s to solidify a plan for the pair to work together between now and May 27, when the new leader is chosen.O’Leary dropped a bombshell into the leadership race Wednesday when he declared he was giving up his candidacy because he didn’t see a path to victory in Quebec and would instead throw his support behind Bernier, a longtime Quebec MP.Though, he told The Canadian Press in an interview Thursday morning from New York, he tried to make it happen the other way.“I certainly said “Max, I’m killing you in the polls everywhere, let’s look at it. You’re not going to win the leadership,’ and he’d say, ‘you’re not going to win 30 seats (in Quebec)’,” O’Leary said.Discussions included the idea of Bernier being given a position akin to a deputy prime minister, O’Leary said, but ultimately he accepted Bernier’s argument that such an arrangement wouldn’t persuade Quebec voters to back O’Leary.“We went around and around and around,” O’Leary said. “The thing is, I deal in reality. He’s right.”O’Leary, known for his stints on the reality business shows “Dragons’ Den” and “Shark Tank”, remains a popular TV personality in the U.S. and dabbles in dozens of companies. None of that mattered in Quebec though, because there they don’t see him on TV, he said, and the fact he was born in the province didn’t count for much.His decision to drop out wasn’t motivated by a desire to protect his personal brand from being tarnished by a loss, he said.He said he’ll prove that by campaigning for the Conservatives from now until the next election to fulfil his original promise to unseat the Trudeau Liberals.“I don’t need a job, I need to finish the task I started,” he said.O’Leary said while he has respect for the achievements and campaigns of other candidates — he specifically mentioned Lisa Raitt and Kellie Leitch — he feels neither can achieve electoral success in 2019 because they share the same liability: they don’t speak French.The fact O’Leary dropped out is an important lesson for everyone, candidate Michael Chong said in a speech to the Empire Club in Toronto on Thursday.“He couldn’t win because he can’t speak French,” Chong said, according to a text of his remarks.“And what that means is that any candidate in this race who can’t speak French can’t win.”By Chong’s calculus, that means the only viable candidates are himself, Bernier and Andrew Scheer and he positions himself as the only one among them with policies that could actually win.Scheer trotted out a new endorsement Thursday, saying he’s earned the backing of former P.E.I. MP and cabinet minister Gail Shea, who praised his understanding of the “diversity and importance of all the regions of Canada.”O’Leary said that was among the things he failed to understand until it was too late.In the interview, he said until he was really into the campaign, he didn’t grasp the complexity of the country’s regional dynamics.It was a lesson he first received from former prime minister Stephen Harper in one of their talks, he said, but it became clearer as he criss-crossed the country.O’Leary said that if the campaign with Bernier goes well, he hasn’t ruled out a run for Parliament in the 2019 election. He said he and his wife are going to continue learning French, aiming for immersing themselves for two weeks at a time, in places like Geneva, France or Quebec City.“I have the bug, I really do,” he said.“I loved it but it also broke my heart at the same time.”—Follow @StephanieLevitz on Twitterlast_img read more

‘Mohammed’ Is Oslo’s Most Common Male Baby Name Again

By Amal El AttaqRabat – The Norwegian Statistical Office has announced that “Mohammed” and its various spellings wass the most common baby name in 2018 among males in the Norwegian capital, Oslo.In an article published on January 24, the office said that while Lucas is the most popular male name nationally, Mohammed dominates in Oslo. A Norwegian statistics expert, Joergen Ouren, said that in Oslo “‘different’ names are more popular than elsewhere in the country” because of Oslo’s immigrant communities.   He pointed out that the name Mohammed was the most popular in Oslo 10 years ago. In 2018, Mohammed was followed by Lucas, Philip, Oscar, and Oliver in popularity in Oslo.Read Also: Oslo Donates Historic Fabric to Mohammed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary ArtAccording to Pakistani outlet the Nation, Mohammed does not come in the top 10 names in other Norwegian cities.According to Sputnik, Oslo has the largest immigrant population in Norway, with many Norwegians born to immigrant parents.

World Bank says it raised importance of managing traffic in Yala

“The Bank has indeed raised the importance of managing traffic in the National Park, an important cultural heritage and signature park for Sri Lanka. When people think of wildlife in Sri Lanka, this is the first park that comes to mind with its majestic cats, amongst other animals. But it’s not simply the Bank that has been raising the importance of managing this resource carefully, many Sri Lankans who have visited the Park believe that the time is now to manage the resource before significant irreversible damage,” the World Bank said. The World Bank says simply closing a Block in the park is not a holistic nor sustainable solution and is not the type of solution that the Bank would propose. The World Bank says it has raised the importance of managing traffic in the Yala National Park, an important cultural heritage and signature park for Sri Lanka.In a statement clarifying media reports on the World Bank’s position on the management of Yala national park, the Bank said that it has been raising the importance of managing this resource carefully. Further, it says holding back funding would defeat the purpose of supporting better management.“The ongoing discussions between the Bank and the government on the country’s park management is held with a view to ensuring that these vulnerable resources are managed for the benefit of those employed in the parks. This includes the local community whose livelihood depends on tourism in the park and the many visitors for whom the experience in the park will be a lasting one,” the World Bank said.

UN seeks 47 billion for 26 humanitarian crises in 2006

Launching the United Nations yearly Humanitarian Appeal today, Secretary-General Kofi Annan called for donors to provide $4.7 billion for urgent support to 31 million people in 26 countries stricken by war, natural disasters, drought and a combination of such scourges worldwide.Saying that the past year, with the response to the Indian Ocean tsunami and American hurricanes, demonstrated a tremendous capacity for giving, Mr. Annan stressed that the appeal “is an opportunity, which must not be missed, to extend that generosity to people whose plight may not capture the world’s attention, but whose suffering is no less tragic. “In a world of plenty, continued suffering is a terrible stain on our conscience,” he added, describing the “unimaginable conditions” of survivors of catastrophes, who had no access to clean water, food, shelter, health care or other necessities.He emphasized that the appeals are developed in the field to not only alleviate this immediate suffering, but also to identify and address long-term needs. The “Humanitarian Appeal 2006” comprises the Consolidated Appeals for relief projects of UN agencies and non-governmental organizations for Burundi, Central African Republic, Chad, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, Liberia, occupied Palestinian territory, Republic of Congo, Somalia, Uganda, Zimbabwe, the Great Lakes region and the West African region.“Flash appeals,” which are released in response to sudden onset emergencies during the year, are not included in the Humanitarian Appeal. 2005 was a record year for Flash Appeals, with 10 issued and requirements totalling just over $2 billion.Funding requirements for major ongoing emergencies such as those in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Sudan are included, though, with the latter country requiring the most funding for 2006 – $1.5 billion. “Unfortunately, many of these disasters have been largely forgotten by the international community,” said Jan Egeland, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator. “We can no longer afford to neglect the majority of crises – to play a humanitarian lottery in which only one or two crises capture the world’s attention each year, and therefore its support,” he added, stressing that “the funding of humanitarian assistance must be more predictable and more equitable.”“We need to see an expansion of the humanitarian donor community,” said Mr. Egeland. “For too long we have relied upon the same donors to fund the vast majority of our humanitarian assistance efforts.” In 2005, nineteen new donors made contributions to the United Nations appeals; at least nineteen additional new donors should contribute in 2006, he said. read more

Ohio State womens volleyball puts win streak on the line against No

Members of the OSU women’s volleyball team huddle up before a match against Florida Gulf Coast on Sept. 5 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-1.Credit: Emily Yarcusko / For The LanternAfter winning three consecutive matches and two against ranked opponents, the Ohio State women’s volleyball team (12-5, 3-2) looks to continue improving against No. 24 Northwestern (13-3, 3-2) Saturday.The Buckeyes’ latest win came against No. 15 Illinois on Wednesday as the match went to five sets, before OSU prevailed by scoring six straight points.Despite recent success, coach Geoff Carlston said the team needs to continue working on its defense and system, and said communication is still an issue.“Eliminate those five-point runs that we’re giving up, but really we’re gonna keep focusing on our defense and our system and then put together a really good game plan (for) Northwestern,” Carlston said.Carlston added that he thought the communication against the Fighting Illini was too quiet at times, and said that’s something that cannot happen against the Wildcats.Northwestern is led by redshirt-senior middle blocker Katie Dutchman, who carries a hitting percentage that is second in the Big Ten at .408, and redshirt-junior libero Caroline Niedospial, who averages the second-most digs in the conference with an average of 4.8 per set. The Wildcats also have the Big Ten’s reigning co-Freshman of the Week in outside hitter Symone Abbott.OSU senior outside hitter Erin Sekinger said the Buckeyes have benefited from having a deep bench this season.“We have so much depth this year that we can put anybody in and they’re going to step up and be so aggressive, because that’s what (Carlston) is looking for,” Sekinger said.The Wildcats are off to their best campaign since the 2010-11 season, when they finished 20-13. And coming into Columbus, the Wildcats have lost two of their last three matches.In their past three matches, the Wildcats have swept then-No. 18 Minnesota, and have been swept by No. 6 Wisconsin and No. 5 Penn State.Two Wildcats are set to return to the Buckeye state in redshirt-junior middle blocker Maggie Burnham, a native of Toledo, Ohio, and redshirt-freshman defensive specialist Abby Hofmeister, a native of Columbus and graduate of Bishop Watterson High School.OSU’s match against the Wildcats on Saturday is scheduled for a 6:30 p.m. start at St. John Arena. read more

Sandwich shop owner who murdered Paige Doherty in frenzied knife attack jailed

first_imgA sandwich shop owner who murdered a 15-year-old schoolgirl in a frenzied knife attack has been jailed for at least 27 years.John Leatham, 32, killed Paige Doherty in a back room at his shop in Clydebank after she called in on her way to her Saturday job at a hairdressing salon.The killer, who admitted murder when he appeared at the High Court in Glasgow last month, was told by the judge Lady Rae that he had taken the life of a “defenceless child” in a “savage and frenzied attack”. There were shouts of “scum” and “monster” as Leathem was sentenced. Killer John LeathemCredit:PA He is understood to have stored Paige’s body in a shed at his nearby home over the weekend before dumping it in bushes by the A82 on March 21.Leathem’s lawyer Ian Duguid QC said the murder was a “spontaneous, gross overreaction”.He said Leathem claimed to have taken Paige into the back office to discuss a job application, where he says he told her he would have to speak to her mother due to her age and that there were other candidates for the position as a shop assistant. Leathem claims Paige then threated to say that he “touched” her.Paige was described by her grandmother as a “kind and selfless person and all-round good girl”. The court heard how her mother Pamela Munro hears her daughter’s screams in her nightmares and stepfather Andrew said they could not get out of their heads “the terror that she must have experienced”.

Leathem reopened his shop just an hour after the attack and carried on serving customers, before moving the body in bin bags to the boot of his car. He later disposed of it in woodland close to the main road to Glasgow. It was found two days later.He stabbed Paige more than 60 times and left her with more than 146 injuries in the attack at the Delicious Deli in Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire, on March 19.The married father-of-two claimed in court that he attacked her when he panicked after the schoolgirl allegedly threatened to report him for sexual assault when he did not give her a job. The claim was dismissed by Paige’s family.He was caught on CCTV carrying her body out of the shop and he was filmed leaving to buy anti-bacterial wipes, bin bags and bleach.last_img read more

Allotment gardener in eviction threat for only growing nettles to make soup

first_imgChris Mellor claims he has been ‘harassed’ to leave his allotmentCredit:James Linsell-Clark/SWNS It appears from first glance that the plot is not cultivated, but it is developed specifically to include wildlife friendly featuresChris Mellor Mr Mellor, from Baldock, Hertfordshire, also provides produce for his family, including his wife Charmaine, 62, but says it is a shame the situation has turned into “local politics”.He said: “I am trying to defend my position, but the whole thing is a complex situation.”I am really stuck on my own. All they can say is appeal it and appeal to an independent group because the current group are very biased against what I do and what I am doing.”On his plot, Mr Mellor also has a pond and a 100lb beehive with a colony of more than 20,000 bees to encourage wildlife to the area. He added: “It appears from first glance that the plot is not cultivated, but it is developed specifically to include wildlife friendly features.”The move will effectively mean destroying years of work and destroying the natural habitat of all the wildlife using my plots.”There is no good reason for the action. There is no waiting list and many plots have been vacant for months, some for years.”A district council spokesman said: “We are aware of the issue and will be seeking to work with the parties to resolve the matter.”A Baldock Allotment and Leisure Gardeners’ Association spokesman has been contacted for comment. “There is all sorts of produce on there but it is just not managed in what most allotments consider a conventional way. From the point of view of a lot of people it looks messy.”But I deliberately take steps to keep weeds under control, the nettles are there for very good reasons because I eat them.”I encourage what grows there to grow but I also encourage it for the birds, bees and butterflies. All I wanted really is to be left alone to enjoy my allotment. I’m not trying to cause trouble.”Mr Mellor has two half-plots at the Clothall Common allotment site in Baldock, Hertfordshire, costing £54 annually at a discounted rate for being over 60.When he took on the plot, the allotment was owned by North Herts District Council but it was taken over by the Baldock Allotment and Leisure Gardeners’ Association (BALGA) at the start of the year.Since then, Mr Mellor claims he has been “harassed” to leave and has received a number of “non-cultivation” letters, stating his produce is “not up to an acceptable standard”.In September, he received an eviction notice saying he had to leave by October 20, but he is now in the process of appealing. The father of two said: “I am not trying to dictate to anyone how they should run their own patch. For me it was a source of pleasant enjoyment and exercise, which is going to go.”center_img A gardener claims he is being threatened with eviction from his beloved allotment for growing nettles rather than “conventional” vegetables.Chris Mellor, 64, said he faces being turfed out of the plot he has tended to for ten years because of his choice of vegetables and because he has left it “messy”.The great-grandfather claims he should not have to grow tidy rows of vegetables and instead wants to continue growing nettles, which he takes home and makes into soup.Mr Mellor, a semi-retired maintenance worker, said: “I’ve been told I don’t grow conventional veg, but me growing and encouraging nettles is as much about cultivation as growing a row of carrots.

Booyco extends Asset Protection System success to surface mining

first_imgBooyco Electronics has extended its electronic safety equipment offering having recently launched its Asset Protection System (APS) which is specifically aimed at enhancing vehicle and operator safety in surface mining operations. In combination with its underground pedestrian detection system (PDS) technology, the company now offers the mining industry a turnkey, fully integrated surface and underground safety solution for machinery and personnel.Having secured its forefront position in the PDS field years ago, Booyco Electronics says it is determined to replicate this success in surface applications. “Our current surface solutions were developed using our underground VLF systems but work optimally for pedestrian speeds and movements, rather than fast-moving vehicles,” Martin Vermaak, Chief Operating Officer at Booyco Electronics, commented. Designed for easy and effective communication between vehicles, the APS transfers information between users via a new, in-house designed and developed human machine interface. It incorporates a high definition LED screen and high-level controller with “massive computational power” to operate quickly at high speed.“Because our system can process a large amount of data really quickly, it meets the requirements necessary for vehicle-to-vehicle safety protection,” Vermaak continues. All forms of system communication are exchanged with the operators using icons, making it easy to use and understand; a significant advantage for users who are illiterate. Additionally, messages can be provided via a pre-recorded voice programme and can be customised to any language, which “encourages adoption and prevents alienation of the system as well”.Protocol and redundancy measures have also been incorporated to ensure the system continues working, despite a faulty sensor for example. Importantly, Vermaak notes, “if the system loses GPS signal, we can still determine where a vehicle is relative to other vehicles by accessing recently compiled information. WiFi capabilities provide users with the option to download data for incident analysis and can even aid in productivity by drawing comparisons between scenarios and vehicle operators. The system can be customised to suit specific requirements, without impacting on o changing the primary software design.“By providing both surface and underground safety system applications which are completely integrated and can operate via a single interface, the resultant economy of scale and shared equipment functionality enables us to reduce capital costs and risk management for our customers,” Vermaak highlights. Having completed the first APS prototypes at the end of 2015; taking customer requirements, previous lessons learnt and failure mode testing into account, Booyco Electronics has already commenced with its first on-site trial tests and has already received its first order.last_img read more

Middle schooler attacked on school bus speaks out

first_imgCORAL SPRINGS, FLA. (WSVN) – A middle schooler said he was attacked by another student when he refused to give up his seat on the school bus.Eleven-year-old Christian Lozada took a beating after, he said, a student attacked him on the school bus. He has bruises on his arms, forehead and a black eye. “He got up and started hitting me in my face,” Lozada said.The beating happened as the students were being transported to Forest Glen Middle School on Tuesday. Lozada, who is in the sixth grade, and his sister are some of the first to be picked up for school.An eighth grader got on the bus at a later stop and demanded Lozada to move so he could sit alone. “He’s like, ‘Get out my seat.’ I said, ‘The bus is moving now and there are no empty seats around,’” Lozada told 7News. “And then he’s like, ‘Well, then you’re going to have to get the finger’ and he started punching me in my arm.”The 11-year-old said he was held down below the seats and was punched in the arm and face before he was slammed into a window. Lozada’s sister was also hit when she tried to stop the attack. “It was under. It was like this, with the chair over here,” Lozada said touching his forehead.When the bus arrived at the school, an ambulance was called and Lozada was taken to the hospital. His father, Victor Lozada, got a call shortly after. “I was really afraid. I was shaking,” he said.The family hired attorney Joshua Hertz. “This is despicable, violent act and there’s nothing that he could have done,” Hertz said. “The school’s supposed to step in and protect him.” The eighth grader who is accused of beating Lozada was charged with simple battery. Lozada said he doesn’t want him back on the bus. “He should not do this again to somebody because if it happens again, the other person could get hurt worse,” he said.Coral Springs Police have not released the name of the accused eighth grader since he is a minor, however, he is ordered to appear in court.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Galvin wins US House primary now takes on Rep Young

first_imgAlyse Galvin, in yellow, sat for a webcast interview with political blog Alaska Landmine on election night. (Photo by Liz Ruskin)In the Democratic Primary for the U.S. House, independent Alyse Galvin soundly defeated Dimitri Shein and two others candidates for the chance to go up against the Republican incumbent, Congressman Don Young.Listen nowShein was at Mad Myrna’s, a bar on East Fifth Avenue, as the first returns rolled in. He could’ve taken comfort in the Bob Dylan song wafting out of the karaoke room.For the loser now will be later to win. For the Times they are a changin’.Shein didn’t win a spot on the November ballot. But he said there actually is something of a prize for finishing second.“I think so,” he said. “We took the message of ‘Medicare for all’ as far as we could. All the way through the race, I think. We changed the conversation to some extent so I think it’s good.”A mile away, Galvin and a throng of supporters flooded into the Dena’ina Center for a media-sponsored election-watch event.Galvin told her volunteers this was their victory.“Got a little work to do tomorrow and thereafter. But we’re game for it, right?” Galvin said, to cheers.Galvin said about half of her volunteers, and half of her staff, have never been involved in a campaign before, and this is Galvin’s first run for office. She said opposition to President Trump is a motivating factor.“People are pretty frustrated and full of angst, particularly in light of the fact that Don Young has not responded to many of the things that Don Trump has done,” Galvin said.She said Young hasn’t stood up to Trump on the tariff war with China, a big market for Alaska seafood. And, Galvin said, Young was quiet after the Helsinki summit, when Trump seemed to side with Russian President Vladimir Putin over American intelligence agencies.(In June and July, Young’s office emailed statements on both those subjects, in response to our inquiries. One expressed concern about the Chinese tariffs. The other said he was disappointed in the president after Helsinki. Young and Alaska’s two senators sent the president a letter about the tariffs.)Young voted in his hometown of Fort Yukon on Tuesday. He easily won his Republican primary. His campaign issued a press release afterward saying he was humbled by the support and wants to continue his work fighting for Alaskan interests in Washington, D.C.His press release doesn’t mention Galvin. Young is now the most senior member of Congress. He’s been vanquishing Democratic nominees since 1973.Galvin, though, thinks she’s the one who can beat him. She said she’s been in regular talks with Emily’s List and Planned Parenthood’s political arm – two groups that could boost her campaign coffers. And the Democratic National Committee issued a post-election statement embracing her.“Alaska’s ready for change,” she said. “That’s what I’m hearing all over the place.”And that, as it happens, was the theme at Mad Myrnah’s, too.… And the first one now will later be last. For the times they are a-changin’last_img read more

This is why Riverdales conversion therapy plotline is important

first_imgGot a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . GAYSTARNEWS- Conversion therapy, or ‘gay cure therapy’ is no laughing matter.For a lucky portion of the world’s LGBTI population, it’s something they’ll never have to deal with. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Read the full article on Gaystarnews:  : However, there are still thousands who have to.The CW Network are behind hit teen drama Riverdale.Main character Cheryl Blossom came out as bisexual earlier this March to the delight of fans.Since then, we’ve seen a relationship blossoming between Cheryl and Toni Topaz, another female bi character on the show.At the end of it’s most recent episode, we’re forced to watch as one of the main characters is committed to conversion therapy by her mother.It’s incredible that a show, who’s target audience is primarily teens, is highlighting such an important issue!As much as we’d all like to believe otherwise, conversion therapy still very much happens all over the world.I’m sorry but who decided to have the the conversion therapy plot in Riverdale??? I don’t see this as good representation at all .-.— issa ki (@xkirankaurx) March 23, 2018Conversion TherapyConversion therapy is a range of discredited practices that claim to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.Many medical and mental health organizations have long rejected gay conversion therapy with some states in the United States and countries banning the practice altogether.‘There is no sound scientific evidence that innate sexual orientation can be changed,’ the World Psychiatric Association said in a 2012 statement.A report by UK LGBT charity Stonewall said one in 10 NHS staff have witnessed colleagues express the belief that lesbian, gay and bi people can be ‘cured’ of their sexual orientation.More than 75,000 teens aged 13 to 17 in the United States will face conversion therapy before adulthood. The information comes from a study by the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law.Riverdale is currently on it’s second season. The season two premiere received a total of 2.34 million viewers.This latest episode, Chapter Twenty-Nine: Primary Colors, got 1.16 million viewers.Then if you think about all the viewers the show get’s when it’s added to Netflix on Thursdays – That’s a lot of people.You would think a vast majority of people would applaud the show for tackling such a real issue.But that’s not the case.A quick scroll through Twitter will show you that unfortunately a lot of the shows young viewers are mad at the storyline, questioning ‘why the fuck would the writers think it’s okay to write a conversion therapy for Cheryl.’I know I can’t take #Riverdale too serious but Cheryl just came out as bisexual and her mother putting her in a mental institution and making her go through conversion therapy is taking it too far.— you get to exhale now (@xLosingFaith) March 23, 2018Realistic representationOne tweet calls this conversion therapy plotline for not being good representation. Another calls for the show out for only recently showing Cheryl coming out and then putting her in conversion therapy.While this may be true, it is realistic representation.Are people really that sheltered that they don’t understand conversion therapy still happens?Coming out isn’t a jolly for everyone! For some, they genuinely do come out and are forced into conversion therapy by their family.Yes, we were so close to seeing Cheryl and Toni kiss only moments earlier in the episode but that’s what happens.Your freedom and sexuality is ripped right out from underneath you, because those who believe in conversion therapy believe in it so strongly.Malta became the first country to ban conversion therapy in 2016.That’s a mere two years ago. And, that’s only one country.The UK Department of Health has claimed they had ‘already taken the necessary steps to prevent the practice of gay conversion therapy in the UK’.And yet 33,000 still signed a petition asking them to officially make it illegal.uuuuuh riverdale was fun and games until they sent a lesbian character to conversion therapy?— pepsi marx (@Celebikai) March 22, 2018‘Gay cure’There’s also the important fact that it’s a bisexual woman being shown to undergo this horrible process.A large majority of discussion around conversion therapy looks at young gay men, which is why the term ‘gay cure’ therapy is also used a lot.So not only is the show highlighting an important issue, but they’re not even do it in the stereotypical way that most would expect.As if I wasn’t already annoyed enough already, then there are the people erasing Cheryl’s bi identity.There are even a lot of tweets saying they believe Cheryl is actually lesbian, and not bisexual.Madelaine Petsch has played Cheryl since the show first aired.The actress discussed her character’s sexuality in a video on her YouTube channel in 28 February 2018.Petsch explained: ‘Cheryl is still figuring out what her sexuality is.‘She is definitely interested in both women and men, so I would say she is bisexual. I think you’re going to see a lot more of her figuring out who she is.’Let bi people liveSo the actress herself literally said her character was bisexual.Cheryl has been shown flirting with men and women – And yet after one almost-kiss with a female and everyone has suddenly decided she’s actually lesbian.And that’s so horrid to bisexual people! It plays up to the whole trope that bi people are actually just undecided or waiting to pick a side.Respect her damn sexuality! And respect the important and realistic storyline that is her being forced through conversion therapy!Obviously we’re not HAPPY about it because it’s awful and horrid. But it’s important and incredible that the issue is being highlighted in front of so many people who may have never even thought about it before.If you hate the story line that much, lobby your government to do something about actual conversion therapy.Read morePeople are joking about ‘gay cure therapy’ but this is the reality UK considering a ban on ‘gay cure’ therapy eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us)last_img read more

TEMPE Ariz — Monday morning Arizona Cardinals h

first_imgTEMPE, Ariz. — Monday morning, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was asked about how the respective performances of Andre Ellington and Stepfan Taylor against the Atlanta Falcons will impact the team moving forward.“We have a good group of running backs,” the coach said. “I knew we did, because Ryan (Williams) can play. We’ve got a good group of guys and I don’t think you can have enough of them because in a blink they could all be gone.” ErrorOK ErrorOK The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories Ellington ran for 154 yards and a touchdown in the game, while Taylor carried the ball 14 times for 38 yards. Each played a vital role in the win, and both figure to be part of the team’s plans going forward.But Williams, the third-year pro out of Virginia Tech, seems to be somewhat in limbo. A bit of a surprise second-round selection in 2011 by Ken Whisenhunt, he lost his rookie season to a torn patella tendon and the majority of his second year to a shoulder injury. His third season got off to a rocky start as well, as he missed considerable time in training camp with knee troubles. There was some talk of him possibly not making the team out of camp, but a nine-carry, 25-yard, one touchdown performance in the preseason finale against the Denver Broncos was enough to earn a roster spot.It just was not enough to earn playing time. Williams, who said he’s as close to 100 percent health since the knee injury, believes the shoulder issue “was a blessing in disguise” because it allowed his knee a chance to heal. Though he has not been active for a regular season game, Williams said his mindset has not changed.“I’m in the same place that I was Week 1,” Williams said Wednesday. “Continue to work hard, and whenever the opportunity is given, take it.”center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires For his career, Williams has picked up 164 yards on 58 carries, and he’s caught seven passes for 44 yards. At just 23, he would seem to still have a vast amount of untapped potential, but as of now he appears buried on the depth chart behind Ellington, Taylor, Rashard Mendenhall and Alfonso Smith. It was thought that with Mendenhall out last Sunday Williams may find his way onto the field, but that was not the case. Before, Williams struggled to get on the field due to injuries. Now healthy, he still can’t find his way on.“As of right now I haven’t played much,” he said. “Kind of surprised that I’m still here because I thought — I didn’t really know what was going on, so I’m just going to continue to work hard.“Hard work always shines at the end, so I’m going to continue to work hard and get through everything that I’ve been through and continue on my path to trying to be great.” Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
