Police launch probe after another reporter faces notorious sexist slur

first_imgST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Police are investigating after a female reporter was heckled with a notorious sexist slur while on camera in St. John’s, N.L.Const. Geoff Higdon of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary says they received a complaint Thursday that a CBC reporter was heckled as she reported from the annual St. John’s Regatta a day earlier.Peter Gullage, executive producer for CBC Newfoundland and Labrador, said Friday reporter Carolyn Stokes was doing a lakeside interview. A young man ran up behind her and screamed the phrase — often abbreviated to “FHRITP” — as a friend recorded it, he said.“It happened in full HD — the guy ran up to Carolyn and yelled it,” Gullage said. “From our point of view it’s workplace harassment.”The phenomenon has plagued journalists in the United States and Canada since 2015, with one of the more high-profile cases involving a heckler screaming it at a reporter covering a Toronto FC soccer game.Toronto’s CityNews reporter Shauna Hunt confronted several men about their use of the sexually explicit remarks while doing fan interviews. One of the men was fired by Hydro One after CityNews aired the video. In Calgary, police charged a man with a traffic offence in May 2015 after he hurled the same vulgarity at a CBC journalist.Meanwhile, a man accused of shouting the same slur at another St. John’s news reporter last April entered a not guilty plea to a mischief charge Thursday.NTV reporter Heather Gillis was interviewing a city councillor in April when a man in a passing truck allegedly called out the phrase. Gillis said it was the third time she has been targeted with the expression since she started working at the broadcaster in December 2011.“I’m fed up — I’m tired of it,” Gillis said in April. “No one should have to endure that while they’re working. I’m a professional and I was humiliated interviewing a politician. It’s time for it to stop.”Gullage said the CBC caught the most recent slur on video.“The investigation is ongoing,” Higdon said Friday.last_img read more

Six Nations passes cannabis law

A new law will restrict where cannabis can be used and sold on Six Nations.The law, passed by the Six Nations elected council on Feb. 25, also calls for the creation of a community-driven commission to oversee implementation of the restrictions. The commission’s mandate includes annually reviewing and amending the law as necessary.“The passing of this law is aimed at providing health, wellness and safety for all members of Six Nations of the Grand River while securing economic sovereignty leaders to the prosperity of present and future generations,” the elected council said in a statement issued March 7. “As we move to transition to the next steps, a community-driven commission will be created.”The law was developed and passed after receiving feedback through a number of public meetings over last fall and winter.Under the law, smoking or vaping cannabis is prohibited in public areas, including school zones, the longhouse, church or any other building designated by the owner to be a “no smoking, no vaping” zone. Violators could be required to undergo cannabis education for a first offence and, upon a second offence pay a fine of up to $1,000. A third offence could result in a fine of up to $5,000.Cannabis is not permitted in any child-care facility, including child care provided in a private home, whether the children are present or not.The commission will be responsible for issuing permits to produce, distribute, dispense, cultivate, process and sell cannabis. Permits cost $5,000 each and the money will be put into a legal defence fund.Under the law, dispensary permits will not be issued to those who intend to sell cannabis from a building or location easily accessible by people under 19. Dispensaries are not allowed to sell to anyone under 19.The law also includes security and bookkeeping requirements.And eight per cent of gross cannabis sales must be paid to the elected council at the end of each month. Funds collected will be used to support community initiatives, including roads, parks and recreation, post-secondary education among other things.Following the legalization by the federal government of the production, sale and use of recreational cannabis in October 2018, Six Nations elected council announced plans to develop regulations.Vball@postmedia.comtwitter.com/EXPVBall read more

Setback for Trump as US judge stops deportations under refugee ban

first_img Image: Susan Walsh AP/Press Association Images Short URL 33,284 Views A FEDERAL JUDGE issued an emergency order last night temporarily barring the US from deporting people from nations subject to President Donald Trump’s travel ban, saying travellers who had been detained had a strong argument their legal rights had been violated.US District Judge Ann Donnelly in New York issued the emergency order after lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a court petition on behalf of people from seven predominantly Muslim nations who were detained at airports across the country as the ban took effect.The judge’s order affected only a portion of Trump’s executive action. As the decision was announced, cheers broke out in crowds of demonstrators who had gathered at American airports and outside the Brooklyn courthouse where the ruling was issued.The order barred US border agents from removing anyone who arrived in the US with a valid visa from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. It also covered anyone with an approved refugee application.It was unclear how quickly the judge’s order might affect people in detention, or whether it would allow others to resume flying.“Realistically, we don’t even know if people are going to be allowed onto the planes,” ACLU lawyer Lee Gelernt said. “This order would protect people who they allow to come here and reach US soil.” By Associated Press President Donald Trump with Defense Secretary James Mattis at the Pentagon in Washington on, Friday Setback for Trump as US judge stops deportations under refugee ban The American Civil Liberties Union won a legal challenge, describing Trump’s move as a ban on Muslims. Video won’t play? Click here.The directive did not do anything to prevent attacks from homegrown extremists who were already in America, a primary concern of federal law enforcement officials. It also omitted Saudi Arabia, home to most of the September 11 hijackers.As a candidate Trump pledged to temporarily ban Muslims from coming to the US, then said he would implement “extreme vetting” for people from countries with significant terror concerns. He told reporters yesterday the order is “not a Muslim ban”.“It’s working out very nicely,” Trump said of the implementation of his order.We’re going to have a very, very strict ban and we’re going to have extreme vetting, which we should have had in this country for many years.

In San Francisco, hundreds blocked the street outside the arrival area of the international terminal. Several dozen demonstrated at the airport in Portland, Oregon, briefly disrupting light rail service while hoisting signs that read ‘Portland Coffee Is From Yemen’ and chanting anti-Trump slogans.US lawmakers and officials around the globe also criticised the move. Senator Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said while Trump is right to focus on border security, the order is “too broad.”“If we send a signal to the Middle East that the US sees all Muslims as jihadis, the terrorist recruiters win by telling kids that America is banning Muslims and that this is America versus one religion,” Sasse said.Our generational fight against jihadism requires wisdom.In Tehran, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Iran would stop issuing new visas to US citizens in response to Trump’s ban, but that anyone already with a visa to Iran wouldn’t be turned away.Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took to Twitter yesterday afternoon to say that refugees were welcome in Canada, “regardless of your faith”. Under Trump’s order, it had appeared that an untold number of foreign-born US residents now travelling outside the US could be stuck overseas for at least 90 days even though they held permanent residency “green cards” or other visas. However, an official with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said last night that no green card holders from the seven countries cited in Trump’s order had been prevented from entering the US.Some foreign nationals who were allowed to board flights before the order was signed on Friday had been detained at US airports and told they were no longer welcome. The DHS official who briefed reporters said 109 people who were in transit on airplanes had been denied entry and 173 had not been allowed to get on their planes overseas.In her three-page order, Judge Donnelly wrote that without the stay “there will be substantial and irreparable injury to refugees, visa holders and other individuals from nations subject to the January 27, 2017, executive order.”Just over a year ago, then Governor – now Vice President – Mike Pence said calls to ban Muslims from entering the US were “offensive and unconstitutional”. Source: Governor Mike Pence/TwitterSyrian WarTrump billed his sweeping executive order as a necessary step to stop “radical Islamic terrorists” from coming to the US. It included a 90-day ban on travel to the US by citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen and a 120-day suspension of the US refugee programme.Trump’s order singled out Syrians for the most aggressive ban, indefinitely blocking entry for anyone from that country, including those fleeing civil war. Source: Justin Trudeau/Twitter Sunday 29 Jan 2017, 7:34 AM Two of the first people blocked from entering the United States were Iraqis with links to the US military. Hameed Khalid Darweesh and Haider Sameer Abdulkhaleq Alshawi were detained by immigration officials after landing at New York’s Kennedy airport on Friday night. Both had been released by Saturday night after their lawyers intervened.The government can exempt foreign nationals from the ban if their entry is deemed in the national interest. But it was not immediately clear how that exemption might be applied.Diplomats from the seven countries singled out by Trump’s order would still be allowed into the US.Those already in the US with a visa or green card would be allowed to stay, according to the official, who wasn’t authorised to publicly discuss the details of how Trump’s order was being put in place and spoke only on condition of anonymity.Trump’s order also directed US officials to review information as needed to fully vet foreigners asking to come to the US and draft a list of countries that don’t provide that information. That left open the possibility that citizens of other countries could also face a travel ban.The US may still admit refugees on a case-by-case basis during the freeze, and the government would continue to process requests from people claiming religious persecution, “provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual’s country”.American-Islamic RelationsThe Council on American-Islamic Relations said it would challenge the constitutionality of Trump’s order.“There is no evidence that refugees — the most thoroughly vetted of all people entering our nation — are a threat to national security,” Lena F Masri, the group’s national litigation director, said. “This is an order that is based on bigotry, not reality.” Protesters at John F Kennedy International Airport in New York yesterday Source: Craig Ruttle/APJohn Cohen, a former Department of Homeland Security counterterrorism official who worked under Democratic and Republican administrations, said the order didn’t address America’s “primary terrorism-related threat” — people already in the US who become inspired by what they see on the internet.Trump’s order drew support from some Republican lawmakers who have urged more security measures for the refugee vetting program, particularly for those from Syria.“We are a compassionate nation and a country of immigrants. But, as we know, terrorists are dead set on using our immigration and refugee programmes as a Trojan Horse to attack us,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said in a statement on Friday. “With the stroke of a pen, he is doing more to shut down terrorist pathways into this country than the last administration did in eight years.”It is unclear how many people would be immediately impacted by the non-refugee travel ban. According to the statistics maintained by the Homeland Security Department, about 17,000 students from the seven designated countries were allowed into the US for the 2015-2016 school year. In 2015 more than 86,000 people from those countries arrived in the US on other, non-immigrant visas and more than 52,000 others became legal permanent residents.Last year the US resettled 85,000 people displaced by war, political oppression, hunger and religious prejudice, including more than 12,000 Syrians. Before leaving office President Barack Obama announced the US would accept 110,000 refugees in the coming year, but Trump’s order cut that by more than half to 50,000.Read: Refugees detained at airports after Trump bans them from entering USRead: Donald Trump made a big decision about abortion this week – here’s what you need to know Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Image: Chris Jackson/PA Images Share Tweet Email May 2nd 2017, 11:49 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article BRITAIN’S ROYALS ARE seeking €1.5 million in damages over the publication of topless photographs of Prince William’s wife Kate, it emerged on the opening day of the trial of six media representatives for invasion of privacy.French gossip magazine Closer and regional newspaper La Provence in September 2012 published long-lens photos of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing topless in the south of France, triggering outrage in Britain.The prosecution in the invasion of privacy trial called for “very significant fines” over the grainy pictures, while a lawyer for Closer said the royal couple wanted €1.5 million in damages.The lawyer Paul-Albert Iweins insisted that the photos showed a “positive image of the couple” and criticised an “Anglo-Saxon reasoning of damages and interest”.The pair were snapped on a break at a chateau owned by Viscount David Linley, the son of Princess Margaret, the late sister of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II.One of the most intimate shots, which were offered to some publications but not published in Britain, shows the Duchess of Cambridge topless and having suncream rubbed into her buttocks by husband William.Laurence Pieau, Closer’s editor in France, Ernesto Mauri, chief executive of the Mondadori group which owns the magazine, and Cyril Moreau and Dominique Jacovides, two Paris-based agency photographers suspected of taking the pictures, face charges of invasion of privacy and complicity at the trial in Nanterre outside Paris.‘Not shocking’La Provence’s publishing director at the time, Marc Auburtin, and photographer Valerie Suau are also standing trial.The case had been delayed for four months to give the lawyer for the agency photographers more time to prepare their defence.Prince William’s Kensington Palace office declined to comment ahead of the trial when contacted by AFP.The case was being heard shortly after the royal couple visited Paris in March. Pieau defended her publication’s actions at the time of the scandal, saying the pictures of Kate, now 35, were not in the “least shocking”.Police said two photographers were confirmed to be near the chateau at the time of the royal couple’s stay after combing through lists of hotel guests and telephone numbers.But both photographers have denied taking the photos, despite evidence that both received substantial payoff amounts after the images’ publication.The magazine has steadfastly refused to divulge the identity of the photographer who took the topless pictures.A week before Closer published the shots, other images of the couple from a different angle were printed in La Provence.La Provence photographer Suau has been charged for taking photos of Kate in a swimsuit in the same place, but her paper has denied that their photographer took any topless images.The snaps triggered a furious reaction from the British royal family and a furore in Britain where several newspapers had rejected an offer to buy the pictures.The angry royal couple launched legal proceedings soon after they were published.Their lawyer argued that the photos were particularly distressing as it brought back painful memories of William’s late mother Princess Diana’s death in a car crash in Paris in 1997 while being pursued by paparazzi.French authorities sided with the couple by banning any further reproduction of the pictures before launching a probe into how the snaps were obtained.But the topless photos still appeared in several other European publications in Italy’s Chi, which, like Closer, is owned by Mondadori, in Ireland’s Daily Star and sister magazines in Sweden and Denmark.- © AFP, 2017Read: Police investigating alleged hack of Pippa Middleton’s iCloud accountRead: Tory councillor resigns after video shows him asking protestor ‘can I take you to bed, please?’last_img read more

Tampa Leaders Look to Expand Tanker Mission at MacDill AFB

first_imgTampa leaders are working to bring KC-135 Stratotankers displaced from installations that receive the Air Force’s next generation aerial tanker to MacDill Air Force Base in an effort to demonstrate the base has the capacity to handle more aircraft.MacDill, which currently has 16 KC-135s, was passed over in 2013 to become one of the first bases to receive the KC-46A Pegasus. That competition would have brought 36 jets to MacDill, and local officials want to show that the base can support a greater number of aircraft, reported the Tampa Tribune.With MacDill already slated to receive eight additional tankers starting in 2017, base supporters are pushing to obtain 12 more. They are targeting the four bases in the running to host the first Reserve-led KC-46A unit — Tinker Air Force Base, Okla.; Seymour-Johnson AFB, N.C.; Westover Air Reserve Base, Mass.; and Grissom ARB, Ind. Additional KC-135s should become available from the installations that receive the newer aircraft.“When these bases get the KC-46, we want the KC-135s to continue to come here,” said Chip Diehl, a former MacDill base commander who now serves as vice president of the Tampa Bay Defense Alliance.Air Force officials, however, say no decision have yet been made about relocating the Eisenhower-era tankers.The area’s congressional delegation is spearheading the effort to show that MacDill has the operational and logistical capacity to accommodate more aircraft.“Our ‘MacDill Means Mobility’ campaign will not stop there and will advocate for KC-46s to be assigned to MacDill in future years,” said a spokeswoman for Rep. Kathy Castor (D). Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

On Raising Black Boys in Baltimore

first_imgSean Yoes is a senior contributor for the AFRO and host and executive producer of “First Edition,” which airs Monday through Friday, 5-7 pm on WEAA 88.9 Lanise Stevenson with her 12-year old son Ethan are featured in the documentary ‘For Him I Will.’ (Courtesy Photo)Oct. 26 marked six months since last April’s uprising. And one of the most enduring images from those transcendent, volatile days was that of Toya Graham repeatedly slapping her 16-year old son upside his masked head. The single mother of six recognized him while she watched the events unfold on television, during those initial moments of the protests at Mondawmin Mall following the funeral of Freddie Gray.Within days, the images of Graham disciplining her son went viral and millions heaped gushing accolades upon her for her actions. But, I feel like implicit in much of the praise was a perhaps not so insidious sentiment; `All these young, Black thugs need is for their mommas to go upside their heads and knock some sense into them.’I too applaud Graham for loving her son enough to go get him off the street, literally dragging him away from an incredibly perilous scenario.However, where much of the world may see a definitive narrative of how a Black mother should deal with her Black son, I see just one small flicker of time in the 16-year history of Graham and her son.Of course, the relationships between Black mothers and sons is vastly more complicated and nuanced than a few thunderous head slaps.A new documentary, “For Him I Will,” crafts an infinitely more complete narrative of Black mothers and the inherent challenges in raising the sons they love by themselves in Baltimore. The documentary had its debut screening Oct. 25 at the Delta Center in Park Heights.The film, by Baltimore filmmakers Bobby Marvin Holmes and Justin Gladden, focuses on the stories of three mothers: Lanise Stevenson, Bridget Bridgeford and Ericka Bridgeford (no relation).“I started going to funerals when I was 12-years old, so for me having a Black boy in Baltimore was a very scary thing,” Ericka said.“When I was pregnant with my first child I kept saying, `I hope it’s not a boy, I hope it’s not a boy. I wasn’t prepared for parenthood, I was prepared to just try to live everyday. I was trying to figure out who I was,” added Ericka, who was 24 when she had her son Paul.“For Him I Will,” is the second documentary for Gladden and Holmes who are intent on producing authentic, organic Baltimore stories.“I have a commitment to tell the stories of my community. Seeing other media outlets, organizations cover the unrest I thought it was a disgrace,” said Holmes. “We have a responsibility to tell these stories and to tell them right. Justin and I have an agenda…we’re Black men, so we’re Black boys as well…so, we want to tell the stories that you often don’t hear about the Black male and see Black males being vulnerable, which some of you don’t see on your prime time television,” he added.The mothers speak with gut-wrenching honesty and clarity about their sometimes tenuous journeys and the evolution of their relationships with their children.“I was so afraid of not raising them right that I wasn’t doing a lot of anything other than hugging and kissing them a lot when they were little, but I didn’t feel like I was doing a lot of relationship building with them,” Ericka Bridgeford said.“So, when I decided I really wanted to be on this earth and stand in my own power and make a decision about who I was everyday, that started at deciding the kind of mom I was going to be. And I chose to be a friend and be someone who was trustworthy to my children and from that moment on every day I learned what building a relationship with them was,” she added.Stevenson, who is raising her 12-year old son Ethan, hopes, “For Him I Will” is a conduit for women, particularly those with Black boys to unite and encourage each other.“It is time for us to truly come together in an authentic way,” Stevenson said. “Because we know how to be together in a superficial way, we do that very well you see it every day on  social media. But, to come together as women in a very authentic way is something that I hope that this film will evoke because it’s so necessary.”last_img

Vegeta looks perfect, but that’s because heliterally is.You can see Murata’s solid work looks almost just like Toriyama’s designs, because he’s such a talented artist. And if you’re a Dragon Ball Z fan you’ve probably been taking a look at all of the rest of the work he’s shared on his social media accounts. We’ve covered some of them before as well. He’s done Goku, Piccolo, Whis, Krillin, and other characters in addition.This is a fitting tribute to the partnership that was Vegeta and Nappa way back when, during the days when Vegeta was working under Frieza to destroy planets. They were comrades, until Vegeta destroyed Nappa, anyway, because he was “usefulness.” It’s definitely a trip down memory lane for fans of the series.

Fernando Carballo exhibit showcases 40 years of technique

Courtesy RedCulturaIt’s one of the miracles of art: If you know what you’re doing, you can skip the brush and just dribble paint directly onto paper. The paint plops into lines and curves, drips and splotches, until – voila! – a woman’s face emerges, as human and alive as a painting can be.Such freeform painting is just one of the techniques Fernando Carballo has used over the past four decades, along with drawing and traditional brushwork. Now 72 years old, Carballo is a revered artist in Costa Rica, where he has won awards for his canvases. This month, Casa del Artista has dedicated its gallery to a Carballo retrospective; simply titled “Graphic Exposition,” the display showcases 15 of his works.If you happen to be passing through the neighborhood of Guadalupe anyway, the Carballo collection is worth a visit, especially if you have never heard his name. What’s striking about Carballo is that he has tried a variety of styles and media: “Muchacha Bonita” is the portrait of a young woman, a kind of line drawing made from dripped paint. In contrast, “Espalda Masculina” (“Masculine Back”) shows a shirtless man’s shoulder blades. His musculature is richly colored and shaded with colored pencils. The two portraits seem completely dissimilar, as if created by two very different artists.Yet all of Carballo’s work shares a single trait: it seems slightly unreal. Even his most realistic figures, like the one in “Personaje” (“Character”), is somehow warped or exaggerated. The bald, naked man in “Personaje” is realistically rendered overall, but he has a huge, beckoning hand, like a homunculus in a bad dream. “Madre” (“Mother”) is the haunting image of a woman, drawn in stark pen-and-ink, with a stoic face and bulbous lower belly. Carballo imaginatively renders her curvature, from sharp nose to baby bump, with the anatomical freedom of Frank Frazetta. Many of the other figures look like Freudian doodles, playfully sexual though never exactly erotic.The Carballo exhibit is the perfect excuse to visit Casa del Artista, an art school operated by the Museum of Costa Rican Art. With a name like “Artist’s House,” you might expect a rundown potting studio in a converted mill, the kind of dusty little workshop you find in quaint U.S. towns. But Casa del Artista is headquartered in a spacious, spotless, super-modern building. The school hosts hands-on classes in every kind of medium. If you have artistic aspirations and you speak even a lick of Spanish, the course catalogue is worth a gander.In this sense, Carballo’s work is the perfect installation for the school’s lobby. He demonstrates the range of draftsmanship a single artist can attempt. Try everything, he seems to suggest. Something’s bound to turn out right.“Exposición Gráfica de Fernando Carballo” continues through June 30 at Casa del Artista, Guadalupe. Mon.-Fri., 8 a.m.–8 p.m.; Sat., 8 a.m.–4 p.m. Free.
