BONOKOSKI: Once again, PMThe last time a Canadian prime minister asked for national airtime was possibly in 2008 when Conservative Stephen Harper’s five-minute, pre-taped message, in English and French, spoke to how a... coalition government backed by “separatists” would not help Canada in the face of a global economic crisis. Soon after, he prorogued Parliament. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s 15-minute usurping of national airtime, his own prorogation of Parliament now over, had agreed-upon ground rules that his speech not be political. He ignored them. The consensus among national pundits and panelists, including former NDP leader Tom Mulcair, was that Trudeau’s speech was very political, and even had the whiff of an election campaign address. In fact, the entire night was political. The PM’s rare...

Man died from eating excessiveA Massachusetts construction worker’s death last year was due to his taste for black licorice, doctors say. The rare incident was reported Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine , which... detailed how the 54-year-old man ate a bag and a half of the candy every day for two weeks prior to dying. The man, who had just switched from red, fruit-flavoured twists to the black licorice version, collapsed inside a fast-food restaurant and died the next day. Licorice contains glycyrrhizic acid, which can deplete potassium levels and cause imbalances in other minerals, especially electrolytes, thus contributing to heart rhythm problems, doctors explained. “Even a small amount of licorice you eat can increase your blood pressure a little bit,” said Dr. Neel Butala, a cardiologist at...

Our society will suffer the consequences "If you've got nothing to do, and you're just watching telly and sleeping all day, it... just ruins you," is how one teenager described prison during the pandemic. Six months after emergency measures were introduced, evidence of serious problems across the justice system is mounting. Unquestionably, the severity of the situation facing courts and prisons now is the combined effect of the pandemic and a decade of cuts. Since 2010, the Ministry of Justice's budget has shrunk by 40%. The inspectorate that monitors the Crown Prosecution Service warned in the summer that the growing backlog could take a decade to clear. In the crown court in England and Wales, it stood at 37,000 cases...

Camila Acosta has learned this from experience. In just the one year since August 2019, when she began working as an independent journalist for the news website CubaNet, Acosta has endured multiple instances of targeted abuse.

Robert Taylor obituary

The Guardian - 24 Sep 2020 18:52
Robert Taylor obituaryJournalist and academic who charted the history of modern trade unions A rare combination of journalist and scholar, Robert Taylor, who has died aged 77, was the leading historian of modern trade... unions, often criticising their shortcomings but never doubting they were fundamental to a free society. Two of his books The Trade Union Question in British Politics (1993) and The TUC - From the General Strike to New Unionism (2000) debunked many of the hostile myths about union power while lamenting that British unions had not achieved a European-style tripartite relationship with employers and government "complete with rights and obligations" for both sides of industry.

Video from the scene showed loud booing from nearby protesters, who could also be heard chanting "vote him out!" and "honor her wish!"

Juliette Gréco obituary

The Guardian - 24 Sep 2020 17:14
Juliette Gréco obituaryFrench chanteuse and actor who was the musical embodiment of the existentialist movement Juliette Gréco, who has died aged 93, was the most influential French popular singer to emerge immediately... after the second world war. With her long dark hair, soulful eyes and deep voice, she became the musical embodiment of the existentialist movement. Although she seemed the most modern of performers, Gréco belonged to the grand tradition of Parisian chanteuses. Like her illustrious predecessors Damia, Yvonne George and Yvette Guilbert, she attracted poets and philosophers who found in her a modern femme fatale. Many of the songs she made famous were composed for her, but Gréco also sang some of the standard chanson repertory. Her manner was simple: usually dressed in black, she would stand...

In 2012, when Mitt Romney was running for president, he seemed like the incarnation of monied interests - a man who would defend beyond all other principles the right of the American millionaire to be taxed at 13%. He was out of touch, and cynically motivated. Whenever I saw a photo of Romney, I would suffer a surge of dislike. Then came Trump. Such is the warping effect of the bar being so lowered, a man who wanted to repeal the Affordable Care Act and ban same-sex marriage has somehow become known for being somewhat progressive. In the first days after Trump's...

The Fiver | What next? SissySign up now! Sign up now! Sign up now? Sign up now! The Fiver's downtime is usually spent slugging super-strength Tin while watching 2. Bundesliga matches with chalkboard in hand. Who needs Netflix... when Talking Pictures shows old episodes of Budgie, Catweazle and the late Jill Gascoine in The Gentle Touch? Superhero films are also a no-no at Fiver Towers. Who needs caped crusaders when you have Paul Lambert and Phillip Cocu? Thus, the news that Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have been revealed as potential investors in Wrexham AFC required some frantic googling on our abacus. Isn't Deadpool a Dirty Harry sequel? It is really Always Sunny in Philadelphia? And what comes to mind about Wrexham's football club itself?

The idiosyncratic originalismHundreds of thousands of words have already been written about the logistics of nominating a justice to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg before this year's presidential election. Since it now... appears that President Trump has the votes to secure such a confirmation, there are more relevant questions about the background of the eventual nominee. The frontrunner appears to be Amy Coney Barrett, a U.S. Appeals Court judge and longtime professor at the University of Notre Dame Law School. Even more digital ink has been spilled since 2018 on the subject of Barrett herself, whose previous federal confirmation hearing was unusually contentious by the standards of such proceedings. Most of the commentary has fallen on predictably partisan lines, with both supporters and critics drawing...

In a press conference Wednesday, Trump raised concerns from both sides of the aisle as he refused to... commit to a peaceful transfer of power should he lose the election this fall. Trump suggested, without evidence, that ballot fraud would lead him to lose the election, and that it would likely be decided in the Supreme Court. So in a Thursday appearance on Brian Kilmeade's Fox News Radio, the host asked Trump if he would accept a Joe Biden victory if it came from the Supreme Court. "That I would agree with," Trump responded. "But I think we have a long way before we get there. These ballots are a horror show." But it's not as if Trump has no influence on the court he's relying on to make a 2020...

There's every chance it was dreamed up to create waves in the blogosphere on a slow news day. Yet it is tantalising nonetheless, largely because this is just the sort of role no other actor in Hollywood but Cage would take on. He is, after all, the actor who felt he was perfect for the role of Kal-El in Tim Burton's abortive Superman Lives, despite all evidence to the contrary. The excellent 2015 documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? even unearthed footage of the actor in costume, revealing a version of...

Britain is in for a long, hard winter. That came across loud and clear from Rishi Sunak as he announced new steps designed to prevent unemployment from breaking postwar records over the coming months. Much of what the chancellor had to say was familiar. This is an unprecedented crisis. Curbs on economic activity are needed to cope with the Covid-19 pandemic. If the state is hurting businesses through lockdown and other restrictions then it has a duty to help.

Liberals need to stand up forA decade after my Guardian series A Transgender Journey, our rights look more fragile than ever Ten years ago, I began writing a series for the Guardian called A Transgender Journey, documenting my... gender reassignment process. At the time, some trans people felt it was backward-looking to use this autobiographical framing; they believed we had passed the point when we had to write memoirs to counter hostile coverage, especially as this seemed to encourage journalists to focus on our personal stories instead of our political concerns. I agreed, but I wrote it nonetheless. It eventually ran for 30 instalments and formed the basis of my book, Trans: A Memoir. Growing up under Section 28, before mass adoption of the internet, I found nothing in schools or public libraries that could help me...

Jobless claims come in worseThe number of new jobless claims for last week has come in worse than anticipated. The Labor Department said Thursday that 870,000 Americans filed new jobless claims last week, which was about 4,000... claims higher than the revised total from the week prior. The number was above the level that economists were expecting, as experts had forecast a decline to 850,000 claims, CNBC reports. This was another week that the new jobless claims remained below one million, but months into the coronavirus crisis, they're still at a level that far surpasses the worst week of the Great Recession. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the record for most claims filed in a single week was 695,000 in 1982. The improvement in jobless claims has come to a halt. 870K last week, which is up from 866K in the prior...

Republicans are moving quickly to appoint and confirm a replacement. A growing number of moderates, such as Eric Holder, are warning that should Republicans ram through an appointment, this fact, plus the deliberate blockade of Barack Obama's appointment of Merrick Garland in 2016, would justify a new Democratic administration and Congress to add seats to the supreme court to restore balance. With voting already under way in the 2020 election, a rushed appointment and confirmation in this moment would be a clear partisan power play, and further collapse the legitimacy of the supreme court. But...

Piketty's contention is that in the 21st century wealth has become more and more concentrated in the form of capital, owned by a minuscule few who sit happily on its colossal growing income - like the aristocrats of pre-revolutionary Europe and non-revolutionary Britain - and that the politically galvanising forces of the Industrial Revolution and vast democratising movements of the 20th century - the New Deal, the welfare...

Qatar: Significant Labor and Kafala Reforms

Human Rights Watch - 24 Sep 2020 14:00
Click to expand Image Workers in Katara cultural heritage village in Doha, Qatar. © 2018 Ramil Sitdikov / Sputnik via AP (Beirut) - The success of the significant labor reform measures that Qatar... introduced on September 8, 2020, will depend on how well the government enforces and monitors them, Human Rights Watch said today. The reforms will allow migrant workers to change jobs without employer permission and set a higher minimum wage for all workers, regardless of nationality. Qatar is the first country in the Arab Gulf region to allow all migrant workers to change jobs before the end of their contracts without first obtaining their employer's consent, one of the key aspects of the kafala (sponsorship) system that can give rise to forced labor. Qatar is the second country in the Gulf...

St Johnstone have just salvaged a draw against Hibs with an equaliser in the 83rd minute. As the referee blows the full-time whistle, the exasperated breath of a few thousand Hibees meets in the air above our heads. We stand up, almost in unison and, clutching programmes and scarves, we begin the trudge out of the stadium. Despite the scoreline, I am happy. This is the first football match I have been to in years and, as we file towards the turnstiles, I try to remember what's kept me away. I miss spending time with my brothers and my dad.

Since 2017, Xinjiang in China has been reeling from a brutal crackdown outlawing both public and private displays of Uighur culture or identity, not to mention political dissent. A cornerstone of this repression, and the foundation upon which all other coercive measures are built, is an intense and unparalleled carceral regime: a network of hundreds of political indoctrination camps, detention centres and prisons. This has forced the region's inhabitants not only into obedience but also into a chilling silence. Related: China has built 380 internment camps in Xinjiang, study finds

Those residents include Frank and Lisa Penna, who allege in a lawsuit that their water was among the contaminated supplies. Known as PFAS, for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, the chemicals in this class of approximately 5,000 substances have become notorious as much for their potential danger as for their perseverance.

Cambodian-British film-maker Hong Khaou, who directed the gentle tale of love and loss Lilting, has created a thoughtful, deeply felt movie of great sweetness, unfolding at an unhurried pace.

At least that's the report from a terrifying article written by Barton Gellman in The Atlantic. While this scenario is somewhat far-fetched, we should be clear that what Gellman describes here is tantamount to a coup, a complete break with the constitutional order that would unquestionably precipitate large-scale unrest and potentially the crackup of the United States. Could it actually happen? Trump has been clumsily telegraphing this plot for months -- not generally the smartest way to overthrow a government, which is best done in secret.

More than a thousand years old at that point, the empire was a patchwork of hundreds of different duchies, electorates, principalities, kingdoms, church lands, and so forth, some of them just a few dozen acres (Liechtenstein is one of these relics which still survives), with an exceptionally complicated and illogical tangle of legal institutions overlaying them all.

The wrong way to attack Amy Coney Barrett

The Week - 24 Sep 2020 11:45
The wrong way to attack AmyPresident Trump is expected to announce his pick to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg by this weekend, and he is expected to choose Indiana jurist Amy Coney Barrett.... Initial scrutiny has focused, as it did the last time her name was raised as a SCOTUS possibility, on Barrett's faith. She's Catholic, but she's also charismatic, reportedly a member of an intentional community group called People of Praise. And that, I suspect, is where Democrats may get themselves in trouble -- not with their takes on Barrett's Catholicism, which is where the debate over allegations of anti-religious bias among Democrats is now happening, mostly linked to widely rebuked 2017 comments to Barrett from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and/or pundit Hugh Hewitt's Wednesday claim...

House of Music by KadiatuWhat's the secret behind raising seven classical music prodigies?

Labour's target should be theThe Conservatives have form when it comes to jettisoning failing leaders. Ideology is the issue, not who's in No 10 Boris Johnson was crowned Conservative leader by MPs who knew he was lazy,... unprincipled, and incompetent, a charlatan driven by one cause: himself. But there was a greater consideration than his suitability for high office, and that was his effectiveness as an antidote to the twin menaces of Faragism and Corbynism. If they did not recoup their electoral losses to the Brexit party, and disillusioned remainers flocked back to the Labour fold, Toryism faced an existential crisis that might parachute Jeremy Corbyn into No 10. Johnson was the panic button, to be pressed only in the direst of political emergencies. Uniquely, of any viable Tory candidate, Johnson met the challenge...
