Current meeting of the Green Party caucus

And it begins …

Green Party discontent: MPs march, ex-MPs criticize leadership

Former senior officials accused the Greens of rejecting the fundamentals as party discontent surfaces over its government cooperation deal.

Former MPs Sue Bradford and Catherine Delahunty say the deal makes no sense and the party’s position in government amounts to a failure of leadership.

Delahunty criticized his former colleagues for failing to point the finger at an “unnatural alliance between banks and government” that represented record bank profits, inflation in house prices and growing inequality.

Former co-leader and current Greenpeace New Zealand chief Russel Norman also called Green Minister James Shaw’s position “just not credible”.

RNZ can reveal that a number of activists have recently withdrawn from the party, including former members of the executive and political wing.

They accuse Co-Leader Shaw of having an autocratic style and complain that the party executive does not hold the caucus and leaders to account for the political decisions of the government.

TDB recommends NewzEngine.com

The co-leaders of the Greens rejected the criticism, maintaining the Democratic Party and making gradual changes of government.

The party signed the agreement on October 31, 2020.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told media the deal was aimed at building consensus and stability, but stressed her party has the right to rule alone in parliament. Labor won over 50 percent of the vote.

Shaw remained Minister of Climate Change and Associate Minister of Environment (Biodiversity), while fellow co-leader Marama Davidson became Minister of Family and Sexual Violence Prevention and Associate Minister of Housing (SDF).

The terms of the agreement tied the two men to collective ministerial responsibility, but allowed the Greens to disagree and criticize the government on matters outside these ministries.

Shaw and Davidson were excluded from cabinet and tax policy issues.

Former politician and executive member Megan Brady-Clark – a delegate who voted to block the deal – said the specially convened meeting on the deal was carefully managed.

Delegates met on Zoom in a virtual conference on October 31, 2020 at 4 p.m. and were encouraged to reach a “consensus” around the document. They were given access to copies of the proposed deal at 4:30 p.m. at the same time as it was made public.

Brady-Clark said he left little to no time for wider dissemination and debate within their branches.

A government press conference was also scheduled the same evening to announce the deal, putting additional pressure on delegates to approve it.

it’s been 14 months since the Greens have surrendered their mana for vacant office trinkets in a government in which they have no power and what do they have to show for this strategic blunder?

Bullshit awakened.

I warned the Greens in 2020 that unless they come in force and demand transformative change and threaten a civil war with Labor, they will get a soft FA, and they have succeeded in get even less than that!

Greta is right, the real power is to protest outside the conference, not to sell yourself inside the conference!

The green strategy team is made up of checkers players trying to play chess.

Marama and James’ negotiating tactic was to get on their knees and beg!

You don’t get anything by begging, and they get nothing …

No political gain, just a few vacant office trinkets.

The Greens are repeatedly being tricked by Labor in a never-ending cycle of abuse that started with Helen Clark and you feel like someone should step in and step in now.

Labor gets the inoculation and political cover-up they want and the Greens get nothing.

Jacinda’s lukewarm incrementalism will not be contested by the Greens, it will be supported by them.

As the events of the climate crisis explode over the next 2 years, welfare reform goes nowhere, housing stagnates, poverty spreads, the Greens will sit alongside Labor like a parasitic twin unable to think for himself, let alone change things.

It quickly becomes clear that Labor and Greens are not the political vehicle for transformative change. With Labor too focused on preventing the Covid explosion in New Zealand and the Greens now gagged, no forward-looking vision on how to turn things around will be articulated.

This is a government backed by Labor + Greens, giving them 75 seats in a 120 seat Parliament and yet they CANNOT STILL be transformative?

All the Greens have gained for their hollow ministries is collusion with mediocrity and a few identity political victories.

The Greens don’t know if they are Arthur or Martha and if they did they would need a 7 month hui to discuss the use of pronouns.

Watch Climate Strike For Students Auckland get canceled last year due to heteronormative cis men’s privilege sums up the Greens perfectly. A middle-class asthetic for the virtue of social justice is linked to an awakened dogma that believes that all white people are racists, all male rapists, and anyone who supports free speech is a Nazi.

Greens are as alienating as a spin-off dinner party where everyone argues over who hates white men the most.

Greens are perfect for nipple free gatherings with trans cyclist activists allies of blogging moms, not so good on neoliberal economic hegemony.

They spent a year reaping the handy rewards of identity politics while doing nothing meaningful about poverty, homelessness or climate change.

The awakened NZ Greens have become so attached to the power public health has given them over Covid that they can’t fathom losing all that virtue signaling credit, they yearn for a perpetual level 5 and seem sad that no actual genocide has happened.

Despite my contempt for what the Greens have transferred to, I will probably still vote for them in 2023 but will skip the second there is a real alternative.

Their only hope is Chloe.

Chloe is a unique talent. She speaks with the energy of the new generation of voters in a language that empowers and challenges. She is an incredible communicator and if she had the leadership she could dominate the political debate.

What could be more radical than the youngest political leader in New Zealand history?

Chloe as a leader is a 15% party. Imagine Jacinda as Prime Minister with Chloe as Deputy.

To be politically relevant, the Greens must be necessary for the Labor Party. To do this, they must take Labor voters.

Chloe can do it. Marama and James can’t.

Meanwhile, the planet is burning.

Newcastle have been at the forefront for much of the first half against Cambridge. However, the need for a striker in Callum Wilson’s absence was glaring. The guys saw luck after chance be lost or saved by Dimitar Mitov, who was excellent in the opposing goal.

Eddie Howe put the guys in a 4-3-3. The last four were Trippier, Krafth, Schar and Ritchie. The midfield trio were Shelvey, Longstaff and Joelinton. Murphy was on the left with Fraser on the right and Saint-Maximin was leading the line, although he traded with Murphy later in the game.

Newcastle had a first chance. A penalty cry was denied when Longstaff fell into the box with Newcastle winning a corner. The guys played short with the ball ending up with Trippier. The full-back whipped a cross that Schar directed over the bar.

After Longstaff gave the ball away with a wrong pass, the visitors threw up a counter in the 13th minute. Newcastle returned to defend but conceded a corner which resulted in an open header at the back post which went straight into Dubravka’s waiting claws.

Newcastle had a flurry of chances around the 20th minute but just failed to shoot. Cambridge continued to defend well but Newcastle began to increase the pressure on our League One counterparts.

The best opportunity so far came in the 24th minute. An excellent pass sent Saint-Maximin rushing towards the two Cambridge central defenders. He played the ball to a booming Murphy on the left side of the box. His curling effort was parried by goaltender Mitov.

Another good opportunity presented itself just after 30 minutes. Schar played a great ball to Fraser on the right. The winger whipped up a cross that Murphy, now as a forward, tried to grab in front of goal but just couldn’t get the ball to touch.

Newcastle continued to pressure Cambridge without trying their luck. In the 40th minute, Shelvey found Fraser in the box. The winger passed to Murphy whose volley was repelled by Mitov. Saint-Maximin recovers the ball, the cross, but Longstaff’s header misses the goal.

Murphy was pushed back by Mitov again in the dying minutes of half-time. Fraser again found Murphy in the box. The 26-year-old scratched the ball but Mitov put his gloves on as he escaped the crossbar and behind for a corner kick.

Newcastle create chances and dominate this game. However, the guys started to panic after not being able to get into Cambridge early. The visitors are very involved as the absence of a clinical goalscorer keeps this game scoreless so far.

We’ve all been Carrie at some point, with our money put “where I can control it, hanging in my closet”, a bunch of shoes and a broken heart; hanging out with the city when there was no one else there, or being underpaid but writing stuff we loved.

Please, if you can, give us back the Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte of yesterday, matured from the joints of life but still with a sparkle. These spiritual friends, politically incorrect but human. Give us back the mistakes, the failures, the jokes, the gossip (maybe not the cosmopolitans, I hate that). Give us back the audacity of (almost) youth – theirs and ours. I wouldn’t want these three boring (and not so well dressed) “adult” women as friends to save my life right now. And frankly, once the dedicated and cathartic tears over how they (and we) were dried, I can’t help but wonder: what is the ultimate meaning of such an operation?

Newcastle United Blog | Eddie Howe is categorically setting the law for players wishing to join the one-off club Newcastle https://ivideosgratis.org/newcastle-united-blog-eddie-howe-is-categorically-setting-the-law-for-players-wishing-to-join-the-one-off-club-newcastle/ Fri, 07 Jan 2022 18:07:31 +0000 https://ivideosgratis.org/newcastle-united-blog-eddie-howe-is-categorically-setting-the-law-for-players-wishing-to-join-the-one-off-club-newcastle/ One thing Newcastle United and head coach Eddie Howe seem to be well aware of is that players come to Newcastle United simply for the big salaries they can get from what is now (by far) the most rich in world football.

One thing Newcastle United and head coach Eddie Howe seem to be well aware of is that players come to Newcastle United simply for the big salaries they can get from what is now (by far) the most rich in world football.

Amanda Staveley has often said that Newcastle will not be like Manchester City and spend money like they grow on trees (they don’t – I watched!).

They spent money like it was dated once they bought City, and they overpaid most of their initial acquisitions as they quickly tried to improve the team.

Either way, we now have Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules in place, which we did not have in the fall of 2008 when Abu Dhabi United Group bought the club from Manchester City.

These FFP rules have recently been relaxed a bit, to allow clubs to recover from what has been a very difficult time financially, due to the Covid19 pandemic, but Newcastle will always follow the rules.

Newcastle fans want to see players like Kieran Trippier come to the club, who are first and foremost engaged and want to come to Newcastle and not because of the money.

Eddie Howe spoke about this today – and the fact that he will take a negative view of any player who asks for a relegation clause in their contract.

On the contrary, Howe wants players to be 100% committed to helping Newcastle move up the rankings in the second half of the season and out of relegation issues as soon as possible.

Here’s what Howe said today at a press conference ahead of tomorrow’s home game against Cambridge United in the FA Cup 3rd round:

“I think offering relegation clauses is a surefire way to potentially bring in players who don’t have the right motivation.”

“We will take each situation individually. I would never clearly state one way or another that we are or that we are not because I don’t think it is right.

“Every individual situation is very different, but I want players who are absolutely committed, who have no way out, who say, ‘I have to make this work.’ I think that’s the only way for us. to be successful anyway.

“I think you get a feel for someone’s motivations and motivation very quickly because I think it’s very important to me.”

“You want players who want to come first for the football and the feeling of playing for Newcastle.”

“For the attraction of the club, for the attraction of supporters, for the attraction of history and the chance to build something special in a very unique football club.”

“These things are so important. If you see a player coming for purely financial gain, it won’t work – the player will not be successful. “

“It’s a big part of what we’re trying to do, but you also need really good players, so it’s a very tricky combination to figure out.”

Eddie Howe seems to have this gift of being a very good communicator.

And all Newcastle fans will love Howe’s comments above.

We don’t want anyone to join us just for the money – we don’t want to be like Manchester City in any way – other than being able to win 5 Premier League titles.

??

Either way, Howe seems to be getting better and better – but he knows we now have to string together a few wins, helped by new players and sold-out crowds at venerable St. James’ Park.

Fans seem confident about an FA Cup victory tomorrow, but nothing is ever guaranteed in football, as we have already discovered this season.

At Skyscanner, we encourage everyone to travel, no matter how you identify yourself or who you love. But we also recognize that there are important considerations when planning your trip as a member of the LGBTQ + community to ensure your safety and create those incredible lifelong memories.

As a white, slim, queer woman from the United States, my travel experiences and expectations are different from those of my LGBTQ + friends who are BIPOC, transgender, disabled, etc. In an effort to be as inclusive and intersectional as possible, I’ve reached out to the best in the business for their advice and recommendations on LGBTQ + affirming travel planning.


1. Start your research with IGLTA

Founded in 1983, IGLTA aims to help travelers meet the challenges of LGBTQ + travel by offering a variety of travel planning resources and welcoming LGBTQ + travel experiences. Social acceptance and legal protections around the world are complicated, but IGLTA guide to marriage equality can simplify this, as it allows travelers to explore which countries and regions of the world offer same-sex marriage.

In addition to marriage equality, the guide also features an app that provides LGBTQ + rights and protections in over 250 countries and regions around the world. While marriage equality isn’t the only consideration in travel planning, it’s a great start for couples looking to plan a romantic vacation. It also serves as a benchmark for understanding where the destination lies on the path to acceptance.

No matter what you think of frequently changing health metrics, there’s no denying that they can be confusing. If you’re feeling lost and want to avoid breaking the rules along with potential fines, we’ve rounded up the latest restrictions below.

Curfew

The curfew is back almost a year after the initial curfew was announced. The first curfew period in Quebec lasted more than four months, from January 9 to May 28, 2021.

The curfew hours are a bit shorter this time around. As of December 31, most Quebecers must be inside from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Fines for violating the curfew range from $ 1,000 to $ 6,000.

There are exceptions for essential workers who must be absent during these hours, for people seeking health care and for what the government calls other unspecified “humanitarian reasons”.

The first curfew also applied to homeless Quebecers until a superior court judge ordered an exemption, citing the rule’s “discriminatory and disproportionate effect” on the homeless population.

On Thursday, the Prime Minister declared that the curfew was necessary because if “the majority of Quebecers respect the [health] measures, […] there is a minority which does not respect the measures “.

“This is an extreme measure because the situation is extreme,” he continued, promising that as the current wave of COVID-19 infections abates, curfews will be the first rule. lifting.

As if anticipating criticism, the government issued a document Thursday evening, saying that “several studies demonstrate the effects and effectiveness of a curfew.”

In the document, the Department of Health and Human Services says the decision to reintroduce a curfew is based in part on “modeling showing that a curfew could reduce hospitalizations.”

Restaurants

Restaurant dining rooms are joining the list of food, beverage and gambling establishments that must close. However, you can still support your favorite restaurants by ordering via take-out, drive-through, and delivery.

Gatherings

Cancel your New Year’s party plans, as private gatherings are no longer allowed indoors except with members of your own household.

There are a few exceptions. According to Government of Quebec website, a person who provides support or services, such as a caregiver, can still go to another residence. Also, a person who lives alone can join another family bubble.

For those who can handle the cold, no changes to the outdoor gathering rules have been announced. Outdoor gatherings were last limited to 20 people or occupants of three households.

Outdoor events can also take place with a maximum of 250 people.

Stores

Stores, which are already operating with a reduced capacity limit of 50%, must now also close on Sundays.

Convenience stores, gas stations, and drugstores are exceptions, so you’ll be able to pick up essential items on Sundays. However, grocery stores will close both this Saturday for New Years and this Sunday as well as January 9 and 16.

Premier Legault said the move was aimed at helping stores cope with an employee shortage.

“Companies that offer services like plumbers and veterinarians can stay open on Sundays”, the government says.

Schools

All schools in the province, including CEGEPs and universities, will remain closed until January 17, but distance learning should be in place to fill the gaps until face-to-face learning. face can resume.

School day care will remain open for parents who really need it, such as essential workers.

Sports

All indoor sports are suspended unless they are practiced individually, in pairs or with occupants of the same household. But keep in mind that gyms and fitness centers remain closed.

Outdoor sports are still permitted. However, access to cabins and lodges may be restricted. For example, indoor ski slope facilities are only open to people who need to warm up or use the bathroom.

Places of worship

Places of worship must close unless they are holding a funeral, which is limited to 25 people inside.

In Quebec, a vaccination passport is necessary to access many shops and activities deemed non-essential, including restaurants and bars.

If you or someone you know suffers from depression or mental health issues, please contact a peer, parent or healthcare professional you trust. You can also contact a helpline who is available 24 hours a day to speak. Or Click here, for additional resources.

The traditional start to the racing year should look relatively normal with a large crowd expected in Cheltenham on New Years Day.

Having been to Chepstow on Coral Welsh Grand National day with only a handful of owners, coaches and essential staff, I can report that I felt like we were back in the dark days of full lockdown.

It was sad that the racecourse was back behind closed doors on its biggest day of the year and big race winner Iwilldoit certainly deserved the great Welsh welcome that would normally host one of their own in the winner’s enclosure. .

It wasn’t sad, but I’m sure it didn’t hurt Coach Sam Thomas’ enjoyment of his most prestigious winner to date.

Racing fans at Cheltenham have what to expect with a quality map in prospect.

the Paddy Power Novice’s Chase (the Dipper for most of us) has attracted a field of good pursuit prospects. The Press Man is Sky Bet’s 7/4 favorite, and rightly so, he won convincingly at Ascot last time around.

I cared about him at Ascot because he looked the most progressive horse in this graduation race and it turned out to be. However, as Sky Bet offers cash if you are second or third, I can give it up here.

The queen of the gaze has made a really good impression since going hunting and is now two out of two on the bigger obstacles. She is an intelligent mare and the allocation of 7 pounds for her sex in this event makes her an attractive betting proposition. She has exceptionally competed in two Champion Bumpers at the Cheltenham Festival, with credit in both.

The first saw her finish the closest with a fifth length of 7 behind Envoy Allen and the following season she was beaten to 23 lengths in the eighth behind Ferny Hollow after struggling in the race. So, receiving weight in there and 100/30 with Sky Bet, I’m going to take my chances on her to win this prestigious novice hunt.

As I take on Venetia Williams’ L’Homme Presse in The Dipper, I think she has strong claims to win Grade 3. New Years Paddy Power Handicap Chase for the second time in three years. Aso justified the favoritism two years ago for the Herefordshire-based coach and Tightrope walker Sivola will aim to mimic this (6/1).

I thought he would win the Fitzdares Peterborough Chase last time around and he ran well but had to settle for second behind First Flow. In his last start last season, he finished second behind Shishkin in the Maghull Novices’ Chase at Aintree. Although he was firmly put in his place by star Nicky Henderson, he was the best of the rest and is a progressive young pursuer.

Besides, if the 16 declared horses hold up, Sky Bet will pay 6 places instead of 4. In this case, I would be interested to see how Riders on the Storm becomes new trainer Richard Hobson. He showed up well on his stable debut at Aintree last month and this eccentric individual certainly has the ability to run well here.

He won the Grade 1 Ascot Chase in February 2020 (when he had a 162 rating), his run last month with a handicap on a reduced rating of 147 was good and a reproduction would see him come close to the same rating here. It’s an 11/1 move.

Later in the afternoon, I hope the Dornan Engineering Relkeel Hurdle can take the path of Brewin’upastorm (11/8 favorite with Sky Bet).

I have always been a fan of this horse and I was upset to see him make the frightening mistake which resulted in his rider’s fall in the 2020 Arkle Trophy, a mistake which deeply shaken his confidence.

After the last two consecutive places on the fences, his trainer Olly Murphy made the wise decision to return to the hurdles, a smart move that has since seen the horse show the shine that made him such an exciting prospect a few seasons ago. .

He returned this season to Aintree in November after having had a wind operation in the summer and my God he was awesome. The Relkeel looks tailor-made for him during the intermediate 2.5 mile trip and his confidence is high thanks to this adventure from Aintree.

His main rival in the market is this Grade 2 winner last year, McFabulous, but he was beaten by Brewin ‘in the National Spirit at Fontwell in February and hopefully the same happens here.

I’m going to Plumpton on Sunday for the Sky Sports Racing Sussex National.

He looks more competitive than ever. The last two winners of this permanent pursuit are back with 2020 winner Christmas In April aiming for a top mark of 11 pounds and Seaston Spirit now 3 pounds less than in its success last January due to four disappointing runs since. his victory.

So this can be difficult for the two for different reasons, but hopefully they both perform well for Colin Tizzard and Oliver Sherwood teams respectively.

The one who would be dangerous to throw off his flyweight is Eragon de Chanay which crept in as a bottom weight with 10 stones 3 lbs.

He’s from Gary Moore’s scorching stable and if he can perfect his jump, this endurance test might be fine for him with very little weight to carry.

Gary Moore has won it twice in the past and another victory would equate to Colin Tizzard’s three wins in this race which was established in 2001.

Welcome to the
Riverside hours‘Five days of resolutions. Start living properly.

If you’ve ever sliced ​​a hot tomato right next to the vine and put a piece of that pure sunshine on a sandwich, the taste of an off-season type of grocery store might make you cry in disgust. . Even if you live in a tiny apartment for four families or can’t keep a cactus alive, you can at least grow something to eat this summer.

Start small. Put some basil and soil in a bucket and place it in the sunniest corner of your garden / porch / fire escape. Maybe also a cherry tomato and a pepper plant if you have room. Do it after Memorial Day. Water them almost every day and watch them. You can try starting your own seeds and planting crops from spring to winter, but these are college movements – maybe save that for your 23 or 24 resolutions.

Truth be told, you’ll likely kill a good chunk of what you plant, especially early on, but you probably aren’t relying on this harvest to keep your thirteen children alive through the harsh winter. (My personal farming Yoda is my father, and he spent most of his 81 years there. Almost every year something fails in his legendary garden – every year is an experience.)

“You just have to do your best and let go of control,” says Madyson Winn, director of gardening at Flowers and Weeds on Cherokee Street, a great source of vegetables, herbs, fruits, ornamentals and plants. inside. “It’s a team effort, you and the factory and the environment, and sometimes things don’t always go the way you want them to. The good thing about it is that you learn to do things differently the next time around.

The stakes are low, and each year you collect more data on what to tweak next time around. If you get into this mindset, the inevitable setbacks (I’m looking at you, Great Zucchini Blight of ’20) won’t seem so daunting. Remember, you are doing this for fun. And sandwiches. Winn caught the gardening bug early on.

“I started when I was a kid. My mom told me to choose a plant to grow, ”says Winn. “I picked yellow squash. I went out every morning and checked. When it was ready it was just the coolest feeling, picking it up and helping her cook it for dinner.

It’s not exactly sex, drugs, and / or rock & roll, but seeing a little green marble forming on a tomato plant early on a June morning is a pretty unparalleled thrill.

“It’s just watching all the hard work you’ve put into something paying off,” says Winn. “It allows you to appreciate the natural world, how beautiful and organic things want to grow.”

In 2021, our authors published new research, analysis, and ideas on topics ranging from religious tolerance to taboos, atheistic stereotypes to the lure of religious politics, and much more. Read our top 10 blog posts of the year from newspaper writers featured in our religion archives on the OUPblog:

1. Stereotypes of atheist scientists must be dispelled before confidence in science is eroded

Dealing with a global pandemic has laid bare the public’s need for trust in science. And there is good news and bad news when it comes to the likelihood of the public trusting science. Our work over the past ten years shows that the public trusts science, and religious people seem to trust science as much as non-religious people. Yet public confidence in scientists as a human group is being eroded in a dangerous way. And for some groups who are particularly unlikely to trust scientists, the belief that all scientists are loud, anti-religious atheists is part of their mistrust.

2. Corona and the crown: monarchy, religion and sickness from Victoria to Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family have featured prominently in the UK state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The expectation that the monarch will articulate a spiritual response to the threat of disease has deep roots. It takes its modern form with Queen Victoria, whose reign decisively transforms the relationship between religion, sovereign, disease and health.

3. Theodore Roosevelt’s religious tolerance

Theodore Roosevelt is everywhere. Most famous is that his stone face gazes up at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. One of the most important but least recognized aspects of Roosevelt’s life are his ecumenical beliefs and his promotion of marginalized religious groups. Thanks to Roosevelt’s influence, Jews, Mormons, Catholics, and Unitarians came closer to the American religious mainstream.

4. The power of pigs: tension and taboo in Haifa, Israel

It might be an exaggeration to say that a wild boar broke the internet. But when someone posted an image of a boar sleeping on a mattress surrounded by trash from a recently raided dumpster in Haifa, Israel, in March, Twitter briefly broke. In a recent New York Times article, Patrick Kingsley documented the difficult relationship, not only between humans and pigs, but also between the people who want animals to be eliminated and those who welcome them. But Kingsley curiously omits an important detail: the drama over the fate of the Haifa boar takes place against a background of taboo and religious law.

5. A pre-9/11 action movie starring a Muslim hero shows what could have been

In the fall of 1999, another action flick came and went, garnering disappointed reviews and a paltry sum in ticket sales. The 13th Warrior is not a great movie, nor even a very good one. But while the movie isn’t great, there’s no denying how cool it is, which is why viewers keep revisiting it. The Vikings are intimidating, the villains are scary, the hero rises to the task, and there are intense action sequences including an underwater escape defying death from a cave. Basically, it’s the story of people from different backgrounds who learn to respect and appreciate each other.

What has added to the film’s appeal over the years is its choice to center a devout Muslim in a macho American action flick.

6. Margaret Mead in numbers

The life of anthropologist Margaret Mead (1901-1978) spanned decades, continents and academic conversations. Fellow anthropologist Clifford Geertz likened the task of summing it up to “trying to put the Bible – or maybe the Odyssey – on the head of a pin.”

7. Place transphobia in a different biblical context

As right-wing and reactionary forces in the UK and US increasingly incite panic about trans people and gender and sexual variations, their arguments therefore rest on false assumptions about sexuality, especially with regard to history and religion.

In this new blog post, Joseph A. Marchal explains that these assumptions can be challenged simply by understanding that gender has never been fixed, both today and in the context of the ancient biblical texts to which refer frequently those who oppose trans and homosexual people on supposed religious grounds.

8. The lingering attraction of religious policy in Northern Ireland

One of the most curious features of the sudden secularization on the island of Ireland has been the revitalization of religious policy. This is particularly evident in Northern Ireland, where last year the chaotic introduction of the Brexit protocol, loyalist riots and a controversy over banning ‘gay conversion therapy’ were followed by a decline. spectacular electoral support and leadership changes. within the largest unionist party that can only be described as chaotic.

9. Rehabilitating the Sacred Side of Arthur Sullivan, Britain’s Most Performed Composer

November 2018 saw the release of the very first professional recording of Arthur Sullivan’s oratorio, The Light of The World, based on biblical texts and focused on the life and teaching of Jesus. The critical response to this work, which had been largely ignored and rarely performed for over 140 years, was overwhelming.

10. Can skepticism and curiosity go hand in hand? Benjamin Franklin shows that they can coexist

Regardless of the trend in the contemporary Twitter crisis, from climate change to filibustering the U.S. Senate, newswriters have little trouble finding a sympathetic source of reporting. Writers who worry about polarization, people like Ezra Klein and Michael Lind, generally observe the high levels of tribalism that come with journalism and its consumption. The feat of being skeptical of the other team’s position while casting the same doubts on your own team is apparently rare. The consequences of skepticism on views unpleasant for the virtues of intellectual curiosity are not good.

Find out what Benjamin Franklin’s relentless curiosity can teach us in this blog post from DG Hart, author of Benjamin Franklin: cultural protestant.

Darcus howe

One of Brixton’s most important and important figures, Darcus Howe, will be honored with the unveiling of a blue plaque on Railton Road next Tuesday (January 4).

It will join an existing plaque marking the time the great revolutionary, writer and historian CLR James spent in Brixton.

Both are in the building at 167 Railton Road which currently houses the Brixton Advice Center and previously housed the revolutionary collective Race Today.

The counseling center recently announced its intention to vacate the building.

CLR James’ birthday also falls on January 4.

Darcus Howe, who died in 2017, was a black British civil rights leader, writer, story maker and co-founder of the Race Today Collective.

The plaque honoring him is part of a series created by the Nubian Jak Foundation, which works with English Heritage.

It is sponsored by Black History Walks.

Darcus Howe was a key figure in many major movements including the Black Panthers, Mangrove 9, Bangladeshi Housing, Black Peoples Day of Action, and the Brixton Uprisings.

He changed the face of British television with the Bandung File and Devil’s advocate, and the route of the British edition with the Race Today Collective.

Between 1973 and 1988, Race today was at the center of the fight for racial justice in Britain, highlighting the impact that campaign journalism can have.

“With the fight against racism and police brutality currently unfolding across the world, it is essential that young activists become familiar with the recent history of black radicalism in Britain, including the radical black press, in order to to harness the revolutionary potential of the media in the fight for racial justice, ”Black History Walks said in a statement.

Race today and his collective of writers have fought police brutality, challenged racist institutions and, by connecting the experiences of black communities in Britain to other struggles, revealed the interdependence of exploitation on the basis of race. , gender and class, according to the press release:

Race today, edited Darcus Howe and, from 1985 his wife Leila Hassan, was a central voice for the anti-racist black community in London.

A article by Bryan Knight in Novmacaw media details the importance and influence of Race today.

The plaque unveiling will be both a public and online event, with exact times and contributions depending on regulations in effect at the time. It is scheduled to take place between 12 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.

Black History Walks has a collection of lectures on Darcus Howe.
