Mehr Freiheit für saudische Frauen? Reiserlaubnis fortan auch ohne männlichen Segen

Im vergangenen Jahr erlaubte der saudische Kronprinz Frauen das Autofahren. Ein Grund hierfür waren jedoch auch die finanziellen Probleme vieler Familien, die sich keinen Fahrer für die Frauen leisten konnten und auf ein Einkommen der Frauen angewiesen sind.

Jetzt wurden weitere Lockerungen bekannt. Frauen, die ohne die Zustimmung einer männlichen Schutzperson, wie dem Vater, Ehemann, Bruder oder einem anderen männlichen Verwandten, einen Reisepass beantragen und ins Ausland reisen dürfen, müssen über 21 Jahre alt sein.

Die saudische Aktivistin Mona Abu Suleyma schrieb auf Twitter:
Es ist ein Uhr nachts in NYC, und ich kann nicht schlafen. Die Änderungen, die heute vorgenommen wurden, bei denen (...) das Alter der Volljährigkeit für Frauen und Männer auf 21 Jahre gesetzt wurde, ist so viel mehr, als die Reisebesch

How American Workers Won the Eight-Hour Workday ?

The idea of having two whole days off per week to rest and spend time with family once seemed like an unimaginable luxury to the toiling class, as out of reach as a $15 minimum wage (or the idea of a standard minimum wage at all).

Blast from the past by Bill #Weinberg.
This #2011 critique of #OccupyWallStreet ( #OWS ), published by the local, neighborhood, #NYC, #newspaper, #TheVillager, was very forward-looking, almost prophetic.
#BillWeinberg is a very misunderstood #leftist #journalist, because he is so critical of the #left. Imo, if more #leftists would listen to him, they/we would be stronger.

Donald Trump Jr. defends Chelsea Clinton in standoff with NYU student on islamophobic comments

“I’m so sorry,” she said. “Certainly it was never my intention. I do believe words matter.”
Still, the student persisted in dressing down Clinton, claiming the shootings were “stoked by people like you.”

While it’s unclear which statements the student was referring, the exchange subsequently prompted a series of reactions on Twitter, including one from Drumpf Jr. who called it “sickening.”

Instead, he contended that he didn’t see white nationalism as much of an issue, speculating that the issue lies within “a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess.”

Murdered mobster Frank Cali met murderer beforehand

Cali, 53, exited his home shortly before 9:20 p.m. Wednesday after a motorist in a blue pickup truck reversed the vehicle into the mobster’s parked Cadillac Escalade, causing it to “rock significantly,” Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea has said.

“It’s not like they came out, started a fistfight,” the high-ranking source said. “The importance of that is — it’s almost as if proof of the concept that hitting the car was contrived.”

Cali tried to escape the hail of bullets by hiding under the Cadillac, which initially led investigators to believe that he had been run over during the attack. Police no longer believe that was the case.

Vice leader of Gambino family shot in Todt Hill section, pronounced dead in hospital

Investigators say 53-year-old Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali was shot multiple times outside 25 Hilltop Terrace in the exclusive Todt Hill section shortly after 9:15 p.m.

Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn had referred to Cali in court filings in recent years as the underboss of the Gambino organization, related through marriage to the Inzerillo clan in the Sicilian Mafia.

His only mob-related criminal conviction came a decade ago, when Cali pleaded guilty in an extortion conspiracy involving a failed attempt to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island. He was sentenced to 16 months in federal prison and was released in 2009.

Charges against NYPD officers in rape case dropped

Because the police are there to maintain law and order, how would they ever fall from grace by committing a misdemeanour on their own? This of course is impossible, thus, any charges against them were purely heretic! We all have to be glad this girl was taught her lesson, to never accuse the cops again.

Former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg not going to run for president

(Unlike the former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, Michael Bloomberg felled the right decision not to ruin his entire reputation by running as a self-financed candidate who embraces his so-called independence from anybody. No duties for Howie, huh?)
“I know what it takes to run a winning campaign, and every day when I read the news, I grow more frustrated by the incompetence in the Oval Office. I know we can do better as a country. And I believe I would defeat Donald Drumpf in a general election,” Bloomberg wrote. “But I am clear-eyed about the difficulty of winning the Democratic nomination in such a crowded field.”

“Many people have urged me to run. Some have told me that to win the Democratic nomination, I would need to change my views to match the polls,” Bloomberg wrote. “But I’ve been hearing that my whole political career.”

On AOC, the GOP, and ecnomics

“Frankly, if we were willing to give away $3 billion for this deal, we could invest those $3 billion in our district, ourselves, if we wanted to. We could hire out more teachers. We can fix our subways. We can put a lot of people to work for that amount of money if we wanted to.”

As New York Mayor Bill de Blasio explained, the Amazon deal would have produced “$27 billion in new tax revenue to fuel priorities from transit to affordable housing — a nine-fold return on the taxes the city and state were prepared to forgo to win the headquarters.”

Think she and her allies have any idea how to, as her now infamous talking points put it, upgrade or replace “every building in America” … or replace “every combustible-engine vehicle” … or connect every corner of America with high-speed rail … or replace all fossil-fuel energy with alternative energy sources — all in 10 years’ time?

#Amazon ’s Defeat in #NYC Galvanizes Movement to End Billion-Dollar Corporate Welfare

NYC Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez invited by Amazon to ascertain herself about working conditions

"Is that culture of 'strict performance why Amazon workers have to urinate in bottles & work while on food stamps to meet targets?'" Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "'Performance' shouldn’t come at the cost of dehumanizing conditions. That’s why we got rid of sweatshops."

Ocasio-Cortez hasn't replied to Clark's invitation as of this writing, nor has she replied to requests for comment from the media. But! Let's not pretend like Amazon's totally innocent here.

Still, she should have accepted this invitation. Of course Amazon would have removed all the shameful evidences that proved her point, but at least, she wouldn't have looked like the one who bowed before her opponent.

I bet there are other states that would take this #opportunity, as #NY continues to lose residents, business, economy suffering, etc, due to progressive policies. Maybe NY can just raise taxes to fix the subway instead.....

Infamous Brooklyn prison restored electricity

While the prison's statement said that "staff are working to restore the facility to normal operations," New York governor Andrew Cuomo has asked for the Department of Justice to investigate the prison and the circumstances leading up to the power outage.

I hope for this facility that it was not due to public failure. Because so far, what I have heard is that the privately owned prisons provide higher standards than the public ones do. Of course this is due to the fact that taxpayers' money has to be utilised rationally, and not wasted big-time so that there are hardly any saves for bad times, but on the other hand, it should be clear to see that the money was spent for good, and not for nothing.

The trouble began on Jan. 27 when an electrical panel caught fire at the prison, cutting off power to part of the facility. According to facilities workers, the prison then shifted to emergency power rather than generator power as the generator switch had melted in the fire.

An insight on El Chapo's confinement

Instead I’m asking the court to force MCC NY to respect human dignity, the First Amendment, federal regulations, and other human and civil rights.

Just in case you wondered about the US' comprehension of the state of human rights enforcement: They incarcerate human rights activists as well, but fortunately managed to move him to end his hunger strike. After reading these first chapters, I wonder if they let the same thing happen as what happened with former Irish MP Bobby Sands., but with other human rights activists.

The prison transferred Spanish-speaking staff to his unit in case he ever let something slip in his native language. This also seemed to be part of a “good cop, bad cop” routine. They vacated the cell next to his in an apparent effort to reduce his conversational options. They seemed to hope that he’d get lonely and decide to speak to prison staff.

#Brooklyn inmates freeze to death during polar vortex in richest country on earth

The commissary, where they can buy additional warm clothing and snacks, has also been closed down, due to the limited electricity.

Former supervising paralegal Rachel Gregory told Quartz that colleagues report accounts of “people sitting in darkness and in freezing temperatures all day long,” with the jail on temporary lockdown, or served cans of sardines rather than ordinary meals.

Cuomo's planned legalisation on marijuana may be postponed

“With eight states now having enacted regulatory structures and launched consumer sales over the last five years, it’s certainly less of an unknown now. We’re happy to share w/you best practices&encourage you to review our core attributes,” the pro-marijuana group NORML responded on Twitter.

“You are welcomed to send any info, you believe is helpful to this process, but please have some patience. As a person of color, let alone the speaker of assembly it is disappointing that I am being scolded about a 6 week time-frame. This issue is deeply personal to me,” Heastie (D-Bronx) responded to NORML.

I wonder what this has got to do with his skin colour has got to do with it. Or does he refer to the correlation of drug abuse, a lower social standing and the byproduct that most of the lower social classes that are more likely to suffer from drug addictions are minorities? Then, this would make sense, and I guess that this was his main intention to s... Show more...

White Supremascist James Jackson pleaded guilty for murder of black man

The murder of Mr Caughman came at a time when hate crimes were rising throughout the country and in New York City. While New York has continued to be one of the safest big cities in the country, the number of reported hate crimes increased by 5 per cent last year.

“The pain is still there,” said Mr Caughman’s long-time friend, Portia Clark, 66. “I’m grateful he pleaded guilty to all of the charges and they can take him back and throw the key away.”

During his interview with detectives, Jackson said he intended the murder of Mr Caughman to be a “declaration of global war on the Negro race”, and that he wanted to “inspire white men to kill black men, to scare black men and to provoke a race war".
