Misoginia de Trump, pilar del capitalismo

first_imgCuando el presidente Donald Trump criticó la apariencia y la inteligencia de Mika Brzezinski, co-anfitriona del programa de MSNBC “Morning Joe”, señaló los dos tipos de viejas censuras contra las mujeres.Aunque su ataque fue inmediatamente denunciado – por mujeres de ambos lados del Congreso y por grupos de derechos de mujeres – Trump no hubiera alardeado de su repugnante odio a la mujer si el patriarcado no fuera uno de los pilares del capitalismo.Desigualdad de la mujer en EUAEjemplos de desigualdad de la mujer en EUA comienzan con la brecha salarial. Las últimas estadísticas muestran que las mujeres ganan 80 centavos por cada dólar que un hombre blanco gana, aunque las mujeres (y los hombres) de color ganan aún menos. El Instituto de Investigación sobre Políticas para la Mujer estima que no será hasta 2059 que las mujeres blancas alcanzarán paridad salarial, mientras que las negras esperarán hasta 2124 y las latinas hasta 2248. ¡Obsceno robo!Eso significa que todas las empresas, corporaciones y tiendas por igual, roban por lo menos 20 centavos de cada dólar que gana una mujer. Según las últimas estadísticas del Departamento de Trabajo, a partir de 2010, las mujeres representaban el 47 por ciento de la mano de obra total de EUA: 72 millones de trabajadoras, o 58,6 por ciento de las 123 millones de mujeres de 16 años o más.No es de extrañar que la clase dominante no quiera una legislación que garantice una amplia licencia de progenitores, cuidado gratuito de niñas/os y cuidado de salud universal. No es de extrañar que uno de los principales medios que las mujeres tienen para el control de sus vidas – el control de la natalidad – está en las barricadas. No es de extrañar que las transexuales de color sean las víctimas de ataques transfóbicos y asesinatos. No es de extrañar que “cada nueve segundos una mujer en EUA es agredida o golpeada”, informa la Coalición Nacional Contra la Violencia Doméstica, mientras Trump planea recortar sus fondos. No es de extrañar que el capitalismo EUA aplique su poderío militar para intimidar al resto del mundo a que cumpla su mandato, afectando desproporcionadamente a las mujeres y sus hijas/os.El uso y el abuso del poder y el control son parte integrante de la sociedad de clase capitalista, ya sea en la sala de juntas o en el dormitorio, ya sea por medio de leyes fiscales que favorezcan a los ricos o con salarios bajos que mantienen a los pobres en pobreza, ya sea la policía asesina o un puño brutal en la casa. No se puede separar el patriarcado – el privilegio de los hombres sobre el derecho a controlar a la mujer como su propiedad privada – del capitalismo, que mantiene el poder a través de la propiedad privada.La lucha continúaLa nominación de Eric Dreiband por Trump el 29 de junio para dirigir la División de Derechos Civiles del Departamento de Justicia es otro ejemplo de su misoginia. Al igual que todos sus nombramientos al gabinete y varios departamentos – que se oponen a la premisa misma de su cargo – Dreiband ha pasado su carrera corporativa oponiéndose a los derechos civiles. No sólo representó al arzobispo católico de Washington, DC, en el caso 2014 de la iglesia contra el beneficio de control de natalidad de la Ley de Asistencia Asequible, sino que defendió a la Universidad de Carolina del Norte en una demanda relacionada con HB 2, la discriminatoria “ley del baño”.Dreiband “tiene vocación de ir contra las mujeres y los derechos LGBT”, dijo Jesselyn McCurdy, subdirectora de la oficina legislativa de la Unión Americana de Libertades Civiles. Vanita Gupta, ex jefa de la División de Derechos Civiles, dijo: “Quien lidere la joya de la corona” del DOJ debe tener una profunda y perdurable fe en las leyes de derechos civiles de nuestra nación … derechos por los que la gente ha muerto”. Llamado Dreiband “lamentablemente no cualificado” porque no tiene experiencia en “derechos de voto, reforma policial, vivienda, educación y crímenes de odio”. (Rewire, 29 de junio)En todas las escalas internacionales de medición, ya sea la representación de las mujeres en el gobierno, los niveles de vida, la longevidad o la mortalidad infantil, EUA está cerca del final de la lista de 40 naciones industriales.Tome la mortalidad infantil. Un informe de nbcnews.com el 21 de marzo señaló que la tasa de muerte por cada 1.000 nacidos vivos en EUA disminuyó de 6,9 en 2005 a 5,8 en 2014 – una disminución del 15 por ciento, según el Centro Nacional de Estadísticas de Salud. Pero es una vergüenza nacional que la tasa en la capital de la nación, una ciudad en gran parte negra, es de 7,9. Compare eso con la tasa de Cuba de 4,3 en 2016. (Ministerio de Salud de Cuba, 1 de enero)¿Por qué la diferencia? Cuba es un país socialista revolucionario que nacionalizó las grandes haciendas y negocios, muchos de propiedad EUA, a partir de 1960, para poder brindar atención médica universal y educación gratuita, luchando por erradicar todas las formas de racismo y chovinismo contra las mujeres y las personas LGBTT. Pone sus recursos donde está su política de principios, a pesar del bloqueo de Washington.Mientras que sólo el socialismo revolucionario puede sentar las bases para acabar con todas las formas de opresión, incluyendo el odio a las mujeres, mucho puede ser y ha sido ganado bajo este sistema a través de la lucha. Cuando esta escritora investigó la brecha salarial en 1970, era de 59 centavos por dólar.Pero es esencial recordar que nuestros reñidos logros pueden ser revertidos por reaccionarios como Trump y su banda de guerreristas y billonarios si no seguimos luchando. Ellos controlan el estado, por lo que la destrucción de éste tiene que ser nuestro objetivo final mientras luchamos por acabar con el sexismo, el racismo, los ataques contra LGBTT y todas las formas de explotación y opresión.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The said data shall be published by the State Government on a daily basis,” added the Court.The Court also stressed that until and unless a larger section of the population is tested for the presence of COVID-19 virus, it would be impossible to detect the spread of the disease through a large population.Apart from that, the Court perused the report submitted by the State Government which revealed that there is an absence of sanitization dispensers, manual dispensers, inadequate number of changing rooms and washrooms, lack of drinking water facilities, lack of testing kiosks for carrying out COVID-19 test, lack of CCTV cameras, and at many places the roads, leading to the Ghats, have yet to be constructed completely.Another area of concern which the Court, in its order noted, was related to the poor condition of the Hospitals & medical services spread throughout the Kumbh Mela area.Therefore, the Court directed that the Hospitals should be upgraded and should be given the required facilities so as to be able to tackle the re-emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Court also directed that a sufficient number of Jal Police should be deployed by the State Government so as to protect people from the possibility of drowning or being washed away by the rapid currents of the river.Other significant directions issued by the CourtNight shelters should not only be constructed and readied, but also be provided with mobile washrooms and urinals, and with drinking water facilities.Those who have taken their first dose of the vaccination, and are certified to be COVID19 negative, shall be permitted to enter the Kumbh Mela area. Encourage those, who are coming to the Kumbh Mela, 9 to take their first or second dose of the vaccine at the designated vaccination centres throughout the Kumbh Mela area.Ensure that the S.O.Ps. issued by the Central and the State Government must be adhered to strictly.

Illegal trafficker busted with seven sharks in pool inside home: Attorney general

first_imgwrangel/iStock(NEW YORK) — An illegal shark trafficker was caught in the jaws of law enforcement this week.The New York State Attorney General’s Office, inconjunction with the Department of Environmental Conservation, announced it arrested Joshua Seguine on possession of seven sharks wih the intent to sell. The sharks, all sandbar sharks, are a protected species under New York law, according to the attorney general.Sandbar sharks cost about $11,500 to acquire legally, the attorney general’s office said in a release.The 38-year-old from LaGrangeville, New York, just outside Poughkeepsie, was officially charged with Illegal Commercialization of Fish, Shellfish, Crustaceans, and Wildlife.“Harboring and selling protected species for one’s personal financial gain is not only illegal, it’s immoral. I applaud the work of DEC’s Bureau of Environmental Crimes, Environmental Conservation Police Officers, and Division of Marine Resources for the investigation that brought these crimes to light and the work of the Attorney General’s office that is bringing this individual to justice,” DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos said in a statement.Seguine has been on DEC’s radar for years, according to the attorney general’s office.He was stopped by authorities in July 2017, when five sharks were found in a tank in the back of his truck. He admitted he was selling the animals to DEC officials.Seguine was allegedly selling the sharks on MonsterFishKeepers.com, a forum for large and rare fish. The site’s marketplace does have a section outlining fish banned for sale in different states.The DEC obtained a search warrant in 2017 and found the sharks in an 18-foot pool at his home. Officials also found a number of dead sharks, including two dead leopard sharks and a dead hammerhead shark.Though the sharks were discovered almost two years ago, Seguine wasn’t arraigned until Tuesday. His next court date is April 16.The seven sandbar sharks are currently being taken care of at the New York Aquarium in Coney Island. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Role of krill versus bottom-up factors in controlling phytoplankton biomass in the northern Antarctic waters of South Georgia

first_imgThe extent to which Antarctic phytoplankton stocks are controlled by ‘bottom-up’ and/or ‘top-down’ factors is highly variable. Here we consider data collected at South Georgia during 3 summer surveys that recorded substantial hydrographic variability. A suite of bottom-up and top-down controlling factors were measured simultaneously at the mesoscale. Sea surface temperature varied by>2 degrees C, macronutrients ranged from near-winter concentrations to near-depleted, while mean densities of a major grazer, krill Euphausia superba, varied between near-zero and>400 g wet mass m(-2). A general linear model was used to identify the main factors implicated in the observed differences in phytoplankton biomass. Despite east-to-west and on- to off-shelf temperature gradients, temperature per se was not implicated in phytoplankton variability. Also, while there was an abundance of NO3-N in surface waters, NH4-N was the key nutrient throughout. A domed relationship between phytoplankton and krill peaked between 2 and 4 mg chlorophyll a m(-3) and 6 and 30 g krill m(-2). The positive side of this dome was represented by the west off-shelf region downstream of South Georgia. Here, an ample supply of micro- and macronutrients promoted high primary production, and low densities of krill presumably had little grazing effect, This positive relationship between krill and phytoplankton biomasses was interpreted as krill accumulating in areas of good feeding conditions. The negative side of the dome was typified by the east off-shelf region, where macronutrients remained high, primary production rates were low, and krill densities were very high. The grazing rates calculated here suggested that krill affect their food stocks severely, and the negative krill-phytoplankton relationship in this region may reflect locally high krill densities driving down their food supply.last_img read more

CITIZENS AGAINST GOVERNMENT WASTE

first_img“THE PORKER OF THE MONTH” UNITED STATES REPRESENTATIVE MIKE TURNER (R-OHIO) SUBMITTED BY CITIZENS AGAINST GOVERNMENT WASTECitizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) has named Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio) Porker of the Month for leading the effort to spend more taxpayer dollars on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) – the most expensive weapons system in U.S. history. The F-35 has been plagued with a myriad of problems since its inception. The program has been in development for 17 years, is seven years behind schedule, and is $200 billion over budget. Despite these ongoing failures, on April 3 Rep. Turner, who co-chairs the House JSF Caucus, announced a proposal to purchase 102 additional F-35 aircraft. Rep. Turner praised the F-35’s supposed “unique capabilities” less than one year after the House Armed Services Committee found that the F-35C “may not have the range it needs to strike enemy targets” and that the JSF “may actually have been out of date years ago.” For attempting to throw even more taxpayer dollars into the F-35 money pit, Rep. Turner is the April Porker of the Month.

The latest edition of the Ratings examines 14 Senate and 55 House roll call votes related to tax, spending, transparency, and accountability measures. Five members of the House of Representatives and four Senators earned the coveted title of Taxpayer Super Hero by achieving the highest possible score of 100 percent. On the other end of the spectrum, seven representatives and 24 senators had a perfectly abysmal score of zero. CCAGW congratulates those members who stood by taxpayers and championed fiscal responsibility throughout the second session of the 115th Congress.

The Save the Internet Act would restore Obama Administration regulations of the internet that stifled investment, limited innovation, slowed deployment of the latest broadband technologies across the nation, and ultimately restricted economic growth. While the bill ultimately passed the Democratic-controlled House by a vote of 232 to 190, all but one Republican, Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.), voted against the measure, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has declared that the bill is “dead on arrival” in the Senate.

The proposed tax on soda and sweetened beverages are among the most egregious, as regressive soda taxes have already failed in states like Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Washington. “The last things Californians need right now are more taxes and more government intervention in their everyday lives. These paternalistic proposals signal that California continues to ignore its constituents, as it barrels toward becoming the ultimate nanny state,” concludes Klensch.

Discounted Registration for StandUp4SEALS Beach Events on Memorial Day Weekend

first_imgAmerican flags line the beach obstacle course during the inaugural StandUp4SEALS Beach Challenge in May 2013 in Ocean City, NJ.The StandUp4SEALs Beach Challenge will return to Ocean City for its second year on Memorial Day Weekend, and registration is now open for its three events: a stand-up paddleboard race, a beach obstacle course race and a fun run for kids.In its first year, the event attracted more than 600 competitors for the combined events and raised $46,515 to benefit the families of Navy SEALS killed in service. Event organizers have a fundraising goal of $150,000 this year, according to Mike Vaules.The inaugural event last year filled a gap in Ocean City’s special events calendar and provided a spectacle for visitors watching obstacle-course competitors run through a water-filled pit sprayed by a fire hose, crawl under the Ocean City Music Pier, carry sand-filled sacks, perform calisthenics, traverse balance beams, and climb walls. The stand-up paddleboard race includes a box course that starts and finishes on the beach and takes racers through the surf.This year’s event is set for 8 a.m. Saturday, May 24, on the beach at Eighth Street in Ocean City. Event organizers are offering a 10 percent discount off registration fees for any OCNJ Daily reader who follows the link below.Register to participate in the event at a 10-percent discount.Read more about the StandUp4SEALS events and how to help.StandUp4SEALs benefits One Team One Fight, a partnership between the Navy SEAL Foundation and The 31 Heroes Project (named for the SEALS killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011).This year, the event also will benefit the Travis Manion Foundation. Manion was a U.S. Naval Academy graduate and a Marine from Doylestown, Pa., who was killed in action in Iraq on April 29, 2007.“If not me, then who?” Manion told his mother when she asked why he had to leave for his second deployment.“That statement has become the backbone for the Travis Manion Foundation and inspires myself and the entire StandUp4 SEALs team to volunteer our time and raise as much funding as possible,” Vaules said.last_img read more

Afterschool Drama Club Fifth-Grade Showcase Was A Big Success

first_imgThe Ocean City School District’s Afterschool Drama Club for Students in 2nd through 5th grades concluded on Friday with the presentation of the Fifth-Grade Showcase.  Previous shows were held for the third graders (March 27-31), fourth grade (February 6-10), and second grade, (January 9-13).These events help encourage participation in the arts through theatre games, musical theatre, improvisational activities, basic stage direction, imagination activities, skits and much more. The events encouraged participation by students with no previous experience as well as those who are young “veterans” of the stage.Click here to see a short video clip of one of their routines “Another Opening, Another Show”. These programs were made possible through partnerships with the school and the Ocean City Theatre Company, and a grant provided by the Sea Isle Board of Education in collaboration with the Ocean City Board of Education.The showcase, which proved to be a great success, included the following participants: Alexis Allegretto, Anna Stam, Bria Condella, Bridget Breeden, Carly Gleason, Charles Drain, Dakota Vega, Emily Mullins, Katie Baccala, Katie McAllster, Kylee Hoagland, Mia Gallagher, Olivia Tyrrell, Reagan DeVlieger, Sammy Beckmann, and Schyler MacMichael.The students and parents were grateful for the grant provided by the Sea Isle Board of Education and also grateful for all of guidance that they received from Fourth-Grade Teacher, Andrew Benfer and OCTC Founding Artistic Director, Mike Hartman.last_img read more

What’s up in Boston’s fall arts scene

first_imgStarting this semester, you probably expect to spend plenty of quality time buried in work and studies. While we wouldn’t discourage that, we also need to remind you that you’re in a culturally rich city, one where there’s no lack of art, music, and theater to fill off-campus hours. Here are a few highlights for the fall, so you can schedule some fun.This season’s music slate ranges from the momentous to the downright bizarre. In the latter category, Roy Orbison becomes the first dead artist to play Boston as a hologram (Nov. 3 at the Orpheum — for the record, a larger place than the Channel, the now-defunct club where Orbison played his last Boston show alive). Not dead, but certainly dark and edgy, is Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, who plays the Wang Theatre on Oct. 19 and 20. Getting tickets for that show has been an adventure in itself — organizers used alternative ticketing to foil scalpers, which meant fans had to line up for an entire day — but that will make the experience sweeter for those getting through the doors.Tickets are still available to see Courtney Barnett, the Australian songwriter who has rightly become one of the most buzzed-about rockers of recent years. Combining rough-edged garage rock with a Dylan-esque sense of wordplay, Barnett is not only brilliant, she’s also a huge fan of Boston music: When we saw her last year she snuck a couple of Breeders’ and Lemonheads’ covers into the set. Barnett plays the House of Blues on Oct. 21.In fact, it’s a banner season for songwriters, since three of the finest will hit town this fall: Richard Thompson (Paradise, Nov. 14), Lucinda Williams (Paradise, Nov. 5‒6), and Elvis Costello (Wang Theatre, Nov. 10). The Costello show should be a little special, both because he won a cancer battle earlier this year and because his forthcoming album “Look Now” has the soul and the killer hooks of vintage E.C. As for Williams, she’s the queen of alternative country, and if she’s ever played a less-than-impassioned show, we haven’t seen it.,If you love alternative country, this fall offers a unique chance to see where that all began. Back in 1968, a landmark Byrds album called “Sweetheart of the Rodeo” was released and … nothing happened, because nobody wanted to hear long-haired hippies play country music. Fifty years later, the album is an enduring classic, and Harvard Class of ’69 dropout Gram Parsons — who created that album with founding Byrds members Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman — is enshrined as a musical deity. Parsons left us in 1973, but McGuinn and Hillman have reunited with modern-day disciple Marty Stuart to play the whole of that album and a bunch of other Byrds classics at Emerson’s Colonial Theater Sept. 26.It’s also a good time to catch up on some Boston musical history. Forty years ago, a scruffy group called the Modern Lovers played most weekends on Cambridge Common, doing attitudinal songs about the singer’s lack of a girlfriend. That was more or less the beginning of punk rock in Boston, but the band’s ex-leader, Jonathan Richman, has since carved out a career as an acoustic troubadour, doing poignant and whimsical riffs on love and life. (You may have caught him in the movie “There’s Something About Mary.”) His annual fall shows at the Middle East in Central Square are always a delight, and he’s there from Oct. 15‒18 this year. We hear he’s even got a girlfriend now.Back in the ’90s, the toast of Boston was a band called Letters to Cleo, a hyperactive pop/rock band with a dynamo of a singer named Kay Hanley. (How good was she? Well, in the next decade she got the job as the featured singer in Miley Cyrus’ show, standing off in the shadows and belting all the songs out when the star was busy twerking.) Most of the band members are based in Los Angeles now, but they make occasional reunion swings. They tore the proverbial roof off the Paradise last year. There’s no reason to think it won’t happen again when they play on Nov. 16‒17.,We noted last winter that the musical “Hamilton” was coming to Boston. There have been months of additional advance hype since then, which means that face value tickets for the show, which just opened a two-month run at the Opera House, are going to be even tougher to come by. One worthy alternative is “The Black Clown,” a world-premiere musical running through Sept. 23 at the American Repertory Theater. The show uses Langston Hughes’ 15-stanza poem as a jumping-off point for the black American experience, incorporating blues, gospel, and jazz, along with choreography that stretches from Josephine Baker to hip-hop. The defiant and empowering tone of Hughes’ poem is maintained throughout.Nothing so relevant is promised in the forthcoming Emerson Colonial Theater production “The Play That Goes Wrong,” but it sure looks like fun: The show chronicles what happens when a 1920s murder mystery is performed by a troupe that’s not up to the task, including a corpse that insists on moving. If you remember the ’80s Broadway hit “Noises Off,” you’ve got the gist of this intentional theatrical train wreck. The two-week run opens at Emerson on Nov. 7. And if you need somewhere to take your folks for Parents Weekend, you could do worse than “Rock of Ages,” the hit musical about Sunset Strip metal decadence circa 1980s, featuring a soundtrack full of Styx and Def Leppard (both of whom played Boston for real this past summer). The show, at the Boch Center in Boston Oct. 23‒27, celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, meaning it’s time to get nostalgic about nostalgia.A different kind of history is on view this month at the Institute of Contemporary Art, whose current show “We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85” documents an era when women of color were creating new forms of expression in visual art, along with performance, film, and video. As a Boston Globe review recently put it, these artists were “throwing conceptual grenades” by opening their work to radical social and political movements. The show runs through Sept. 30.last_img read more
