Two Muslim women drive NYPD to change its practice of forcefully removing the hijab

first_img– Advertisement – According to the Associated Press, while Clark and Aziz began as the initial plaintiffs of the federal lawsuit, multiple women joined them, reiterating the same story of forced hijab removal. According to the legal decision, the new policy now requires NYPD officers who question or arrest a person with religious attire to “take [a] photograph of [the] prisoner with religious head covering in place.” Exceptions to the policy are very limited and include only cases in which religious attire covers the face, for example, a burqa—which would have to be removed for full facial features to be captured.“This is a milestone for New Yorkers’ privacy and religious rights. No one should be forced to undress just to be fed into a facial recognition database. New Yorkers are able to get a drivers’ license or passport while wearing the hijab, and there’s absolutely no reason for it to be removed by police,” STOP’s Executive Director Albert Fox Cahn said in a statement. STOP represented both Clark and Aziz in their proceedings. “Now that the NYPD has agreed to end the policy, they still need to go a step further. That’s because this settlement doesn’t address the thousands of New Yorkers who were subjected to this unlawful policy. That’s why we’re still fighting in court to make sure the NYPD pays for the harm its already inflicted.”- Advertisement – Incidents of forced hijab removal have occurred throughout the U.S. for years. Women have not only been forced to remove their hijab but made to receive their headscarves outside of police department buildings, where the public can see them. Additionally, some women have reported being forced to wear short-sleeved clothing when other options were available. In a country where religious freedom is guaranteed, no one should be forced to remove religious covering nor fear wearing it. If other government identifications can be taken without the removal of religious coverings, such as licenses, mug shots and other photos should not result in the practice of discrimination. Photos depicting one’s facial features can be taken without interfering with religious freedom.center_img xWe may have ended this policy, but we’re still fighting in court to get justice for those victimized by the NYPD in the past. Help us continue the fight to compensate the thousands of New Yorkers already mistreated and harassed by the #NYPD.https://t.co/IUJE623X1Q— S.T.O.P.—Surveillance Technology Oversight Project (@STOPSpyingNY) November 10, 2020The New York City Law Department special federal litigation chief, Patricia Miller, also saw the policy change as “good reform.” She noted that such a change serves as a model for other aspects of the country. “It carefully balances the department’s respect for firmly held religious beliefs with the legitimate law enforcement need to take arrest photos and should set an example for other police departments in the country,” Miller told the AP.For years the department had no official policy and left removing religious attire for mugshots up to the discretion of officers—who sometimes removed them and sometimes did not. This policy change is not the first the NYPD has made as a result of religious discrimination. According to The New York Times, a lawsuit filed in 2016 resulted in the department allowing officers to wear turbans and grow beards for religious reasons.- Advertisement –last_img read more


Pentagon surplus handouts stoke the militarization of US police

first_imgSmall-town police armed for war As soon as protests began in Minneapolis, the city’s troubled police department rolled out armored vehicles appearing more suited to Middle East battlefields.Other large cities have them too, but also small towns.In 2013 police in Flathead County, Montana, which has 90,000 residents nestled near the scenic Glacier National Park, received a landmine-resistant armored vehicle, one year after taking delivery of a military transport. When US police flooded the streets around the country to confront protesters two weeks ago, for many it appeared like the army had deployed, with camouflage uniforms and combat gear, heavily armored anti-mine vehicles, and high-powered assault weapons. That’s not by accident. For years the US Defense Department has been handing its surplus equipment over for free to police departments — and the departments, large and small, have revelled in it.Critics say it has been part of the overall militarization of the police, and helped fuel mass nationwide demonstrations against police abuse and deadly tactics that began after the May 25 killing of a handcuffed African American, George Floyd, by a Minneapolis police officer. The 10-person (two only part-time) police department in Ada, Oklahoma, population 16,000, got their mine-resistant armored car in July 2019, after stockpiling 34 M-16 assault rifles over the years.  In a country where many people have their own guns and where schools have suffered mass shootings, even local education districts are taking advantage of the Pentagon’s handouts.The 47 primary and secondary schools of the Bay District in Panama City, Florida acquired no less than 27 assault rifles and two mine-resistant armored vehicles in 2012 and 2013.Trump restarted giveaway The “1033” Pentagon surplus program has existed for years. Since 1997, the US military has distributed used and new equipment ranging from handguns to helicopters to armored vehicles, worth around $8.6 billion, to more than 8,000 federal, tribal and local police forces, according to the US Congress. In 2015 President Barack Obama severely limited the program, but his successor Donald Trump restored it in 2017.That year alone, some 500 million pieces of military equipment were transferred to the country’s police services under the 1033 program.But the recent anti-police protests have recharged efforts to stop it.This week around 200 lawmakers in Congress, mostly Democrats, sponsored a bill, the “Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act”, to again reel in the program.The bill, in the House of Representatives, would strictly limit the transfer of guns, ammunition, grenades, explosives, certain kinds of vehicles, and drones and other aircraft designed for the battlefield.A parallel bill is being prepared in the Senate, pushed by Democrat Brian Schatz, who has fought against over-arming the police for years.”It is clear that many police departments are being outfitted as if they are going to war, and it is not working in terms of maintaining the peace,” Schatz told The New York Times. “Just because the Department of Defense has excess weaponry doesn’t mean it will be put to good use.”Schatz and Republican Senator Rand Paul attempted to push through a similar law in 2014, after the first publication of details of the 1033 program, amid the riots over police brutality against African-Americans in Ferguson, Missouri. The protests and riots that broke out over the police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown were met by police officers carrying assault rifles and driving armored cars they got from the Pentagon. Topics :last_img read more

Victor Moses coach threatens to leave Inter Milan

first_img Loading… Andrea Belotti was gifted the opener after Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic fumbled a corner at the Torino star’s feet at San Siro – heaping further misery on Conte and his stuttering side. But Inter – without Romelu Lukaku – rallied in the second half thanks to goals from Ashley Young, Diego Godin and Lautaro Martinez, who ended his five-game scoreless drought. Conte added: “I honestly think we started the game very well. Then there was this corner kick. It was a period where there was an incident and we conceded a goal. “I find it sensational that Samir messed up: he hardly makes mistakes. Overall, I think it was a game we dominated. read also:Conte: ‘Inter on the right track’ “The goal could’ve made us nervous and caused us problems, but we did well to score our goals. “We’re much less predictable than we were before as now we attack with more men. The result must crown the effort we put in and when it doesn’t, it disappoints me. “We’ve been punished excessively by certain incidents, but we’re on the right track: playing attacking football and overloading our opponents’ box.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Inter head coach, Antonio Conte, said he will not “hesitate” to leave if the club are unhappy, though the Italian remains committed to the Nerazzurri project amid question marks over his future. Conte joined Inter at the start of the season but there have been reports the former Chelsea and Juventus boss could leave at the end of the 2019-20 campaign. Doubts have emerged amid Inter’s struggles and Conte’s frustrations, with the team failing to fire since the Serie A returned last month after the season was halted in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Inter leapfrogged Lazio into the second position in the table, eight points behind leaders Juve with six games remaining, following Monday’s rallying 3-1 win at home to Torino, and Conte was asked about his future. “I was called to Inter for a three-year project, to bring them back where they deserve to be,” Conte told Sky Sport Italia. “Inevitably, that takes time. I came here with so much enthusiasm. I have faith. “I started a three-year project and [my contract] lasts three years. After that, if they want to extend my contract… I’m happy, I know there’s a long way to go, but I don’t want to overstay my welcome. “If everyone’s happy with the job I’m doing, and I think that’s the case right now, from what I’ve been told, then I don’t see why we shouldn’t go on. “If they’re not happy with the job I’m doing then I won’t hesitate to step aside.” Inter have seen their Scudetto bid derailed following a home defeat to Bologna and a draw with Hellas Verona, and they fell behind in the 17th minute on Monday.center_img Promoted ContentPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D GraffitiA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsThe World’s 7 Most Spectacular Railway StationsReal World Archaeological Finds That Would Stump Indiana JonesWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Who Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Top 10 Most Romantic Nations In The World10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World7 Mind-Boggling Facts About Black HolesBest Car Manufacturers In The Worldlast_img read more

Gov. DeSantis Signs Bills on School Bus Safety, Bear Poaching

first_imgHowever, Democratic Rep. Joe Geller, of Aventura, said he was “reluctantly” supporting the bill, as he believes the proposed fines are too high.“We’re fining someone up to $400 because they look away for a second, maybe because their kids are fighting in the backseat, and they don’t see that they’re passing a school bus that’s stopped,” Geller said in February. “That’s just too high. It’s just too much money to be charging for what is likely to be an inadvertent mistake.”Another bill signed by Gov. DeSantis (HB 327) seeks to stop poaching of black bears. It is a practice that stems partially from killing the animals for their gallbladders. Bear bile, which is secreted by the liver and stored in the gallbladder, can bring hundreds or thousands of dollars on the black market, where it is promoted as a cure for numerous illnesses.The governor is also in the process of signing the upcoming year’s $93.2 billion budget. Gov. Ron DeSantis on Saturday signed 21 bills, including measures intended at improving school bus safety and preventing bear poaching.The school bus safety bill (HB 37) will increase penalties for motorists who do not follow traffic rules when buses are stopped to load and unload children.It would increase the minimum penalty from $100 to $200 for drivers who fail to stop for school buses. In addition, the law would double the minimum penalty from $200 to $400 for motorists who pass stopped school buses on the side where children enter and exit.“This bill is a step in the right direction,” Republican House sponsor Ardian Zika, of Land O’ Lakes, said before the House approved the measure last February. “Today, we are sending a loud and clear message that the Florida House of Representatives stands by the safety of our children and our communities.”Florida governor stiffens penalties against bear poachinghttps://t.co/i3i5KWQubN— Florida Issues (@FloridaIssues) June 21, 2020last_img read more


Sales struggles in loss; Lemon sets program record for receptions

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories DIGGING A HOLE: Multiple turnovers, miscues cost Syracuse in 17-10 loss to MinnesotaMinnesota leads Syracuse 7-3 at halftime in low-scoring affair filled with penaltiesOffensive struggles cost Syracuse in 17-10 loss to Minnesota MINNEAPOLIS— The game was nearly over when Marcus Sales finally made his way onto the stat sheet.After turning in 100-yard receiving performances in each of Syracuse’s first three games, the senior wide receiver was held without a catch for the first 57-plus minutes of the game on Saturday night. The Minnesota secondary rendered Sales invisible in the Orange’s pass-happy, no-huddle offense for the first time in 2012.“We tried to move him around, get him in spots where we could get some one-on-one looks,” SU quarterback Ryan Nassib said. “But they had a plan for him and they did a good job taking him out of the game.“It’s something that we’re going to have to think about and game plan for.”Sales finished with two catches and a touchdown, but both came on the Orange’s meaningless scoring drive in the final minutes to cap a 17-10 loss to Minnesota at TCF Bank Stadium.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSales emerged as the team’s go-to receiver with his stellar play in the first three games. He easily found seams in the defense on slants and chased down lob passes for grabs during the streak of 100-yard games, but Nassib rarely looked his way on Saturday as the Gophers ran their game plan to perfection.“Mostly they clouded him and played a safety over the top,” SU head coach Doug Marrone said. “They did a nice job of that, take him out of the game and that’s what most people do to take people out.”Lemon sets program record for receptionsLemon returned to his 2011 form in the loss. After undergoing offseason shoulder surgery and dealing with a nagging lower-body injury early in the season, the senior broke through with nine catches against Minnesota.His performance moved him past Shelby Hill and Scott Schwedes to become Syracuse’s leader in career receptions with 145 — six more than the previous record. Lemon’s historic night went without any celebrations, as he and the team focused more on a disappointing 17-10 loss after the game.“It means a lot,” Lemon said. “It would mean more if we won the game. It’s nice to be on a list with people like that, but I don’t play this game to get individual records. We go out there to win the game.”Lemon’s first catch came midway through the first quarter with SU trailing 7-0. The wideout lined up with about 15 yards separating him and Minnesota safety Derrick Wells. Nassib hit a wide-open Lemon in the slot for a 24-yard pickup and then called his number on the next play for eight more yards.From there, Lemon became Nassib’s favorite target, just as he was in 2011.Bye weekHeading into the bye week, Marrone’s team isn’t where it wanted to be. Syracuse has fallen in three close games, and the program looks to be on the path to another losing season.Marrone tried to impress on his players the need to remain positive and continue to believe if they’re going to rebound from the bad start.“Like I told the players, we know that we’re a good football team,” Marrone said. “The perception of it is we’re 1-3 and the three teams we’ve lost to are a combined probably 11-1. That doesn’t make us feel any better.”Marrone said he stressed that the players can’t get caught up with outside expectations and distractions this week. Right now, the Orange can only continue to work hard and improve before taking on Pittsburgh in a Friday night game in the Carrier Dome on Oct. 5.The head coach still calls his group a good football team. To back up their coach’s statement the rest of the season, Nassib and his teammates know this week’s preparation is crucial.“We got to go into this bye with a full head of steam and try to get as much better as we can,” Nassib said. “We got to get our bodies back. We’ve been in four dogfights so far this year and we just got to get ready for the second half of the season.” Commentscenter_img Published on September 24, 2012 at 2:52 am Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.edulast_img read more


Program strives for inclusivity, participants say

first_imgA gender-inclusive option currently exists in two apartments on the floor. Participants live in rooms with students who identify with the same gender but share the apartment with students of all genders.Elizabeth Soriano, a junior majoring in communications who lives on the Rainbow Floor, said living in one of the gender-inclusive apartments has improved her USC housing experience.“It’s a really good experience so far because I’ve had previous experiences with housing…and compared to this housing experience, I feel like I’m in a better place,” Soriano said.Vigil said so far, residents of the gender-inclusive apartments have had positive experiences.“The rooms have not had any major conflicts as of now,” Vigil said.He went on to say that though the pilot program is new for USC, many universities already offer comparable housing options.“Other institutions have been doing something similar on their LGBT-themed floors for years,” Vigil said.Kevin Steen, the floor’s resident adviser, said the gender-inclusive apartments integrated smoothly into the rest of the building.“It has really added to the diversity of the floor and has really legitimized our movement toward gender-friendly housing at USC,” Steen said. “The Rainbow Floor is really a reflection of the community, and USC really leads the way in terms of movements and changing mentality.”Soriano said living in a gender-inclusive apartment and on the Rainbow Floor is preferable to past housing options.“It makes me feel much more comfortable to know that identity won’t be a factor with any conflicts that would rise up among my apartment mates,” Soriano said. “So far, it’s been great.”Other California universities, including Stanford, have made the shift to offer gender-neutral housing. Gender-neutral housing allows students to live in the same room, regardless of their gender identification, as opposed to gender-inclusive housing, which allows students of opposite sexes to live in the same apartment but not the same bedroom.“This transition toward gender-inclusive housing is a way for USC to make the Rainbow Floor more inclusive and create a safe environment,” Vigil said. “This was not a move to make the USC campus gender-neutral.”Vigil said in order to make the shift, the university would have to invest many resources to renovate the current traditional-style dorms and build gender-neutral bathrooms where each stall and shower is enclosed from floor to ceiling. He also said that the case for adopting gender-neutral housing must come from the students.“At Stanford, student government put petitions together and took surveys of the student body,” Vigil said. “In order to have gender-neutral housing at USC, students need to advocate for it. Just like every other issue on campus, students need to move it forward.”Though there has not been a huge push for gender-neutral housing so far, Steen said he feels encouraged by the response the program has received.“I’ve had members of the Greek community and people in Residential Education checking in with me to see how its going, so I feel like we have a lot of support,” Steen said.A wider-reaching program would come at a great benefit to students, Soriano said.“I feel like it would be great if it could be expanded, the Rainbow Floor included,” Soriano said. “I feel like a lot of other people can benefit more than I can currently.” A new pilot program that offers gender-inclusive housing on a LGBT-themed floor has been dubbed a success, according to Vincent Vigil, director of the LGBT Resource Center.According to Vigil, the program, which was approved last March, aims to make the LGBT-themed Rainbow Floor in Century Apartments more inclusive for transgender or gender-variant students.Diversity · The Rainbow Floor in Century Apartments offers gender-inclusive apartments for tenants of both sexes to create a comforting and accepting environment for residents and at USC as a whole. – Ricardo Galvez | Daily Trojanlast_img read more


Wisconsin, Minnesota geared up for round 2

first_imgAlthough Paul Bunyan’s Axe will not go to the winner, this weekend’s men’s hockey series between Wisconsin and Minnesota has a great deal at stake.Trailing Minnesota by 10 points in the Big Ten standings, the third-place and 12th-ranked Badgers (14-8-2 overall, 5-4-1 Big Ten with 16 points) are looking to climb back into the conference title chase with six points on the line Thursday and Friday night at the Kohl Center with 10 games remaining in the regular season.As if the battle for the first title in the inaugural year of Big Ten hockey wasn’t enough to add to the rivalry, the fact that the Golden Gophers (18-2-5, 8-0-2 with 26 points) are the No. 1 team in the country coming into Madison should certainly spark a higher level of intensity in a series that has been fairly quiet in recent years.“In the games we’ve played them since I’ve been here as a coach, we haven’t had any big brawls. When I played them as a player we had brawls, so it was a little different,” Wisconsin assistant coach Gary Shuchuk, who played for UW from 1986-1990, said. “But it’s just one of those great rivalries where it’s bragging rights. Right now, they’re up two games on us and playing in this Big Ten. We have a chance to redeem ourselves.”Those two games Shuchuk referred to were the first two games played this season between the Badgers and Gophers, which saw the Gophers sweep Wisconsin in Minneapolis Nov. 29 and 30.However, the new alignment in the Big Ten that has only six teams allows the member schools to play each other in home-and-home series, giving Wisconsin a shot at revenge, something that often didn’t happen in the old Western Collegiate Hockey Association.Though the teams did already play this season, it was the first conference matchup for both teams and early on in the season, meaning the two squads will have a different look about them come Thursday night, as Wisconsin head coach Mike Eaves explained.“The way they would have changed is the details in their systems play. It’ll be harder to find plays in their defensive zone coverage because they’ve had more reps and more game experience. Every part of their game their details will be better,” Eaves said, adding his team will be better in its systems play as well.For Wisconsin, the changes are not just limited to the play on the ice, as there will be several changes to those who are on the ice, too. The biggest of those alterations will be the absence of Tyler Barnes, who sustained a shoulder injury two weekends ago against Ohio State. With Barnes on the sidelines for the second consecutive week, Eaves will have to shake up his forward lines once again.Fortunately for Eaves, the changes in the lineups this week are due to getting Nic Kerdiles back from his shoulder injury after he missed six games and part of the game against Alaska-Anchorage when he initially got hurt.“He’s high-level, skill player. He can skate like the wind. He has a great shot. He has great vision,” Shuchuk said. “Just inserting him into the lineup gives us a different dimension as a team as a whole. I like it when he’s playing because of that. He’s one of those hockey players that at any given moment he can score or cause a penalty with his speed, so he brings a different element into our lineup.”Kerdiles will play wing on the first line with Mark Zengerle at center and Sean Little on the other wing, bumping Morgan Zulinick to the second line with Michael Mersch and Jefferson Dahl, encompassing the key line changes.Despite the changes and the injury to Barnes, Wisconsin still has a great deal of experience with seven seniors in the starting lineup.Minnesota, on the other hand, has a very balanced roster and a youthful one at that, with eight freshmen comprising the Gophers’ biggest class of players, freshmen who have been key to their success and top rank.“I think that as a whole, how they’re having success is based on their freshman group. Their freshman group came along and they’re scoring a lot of goals for them. If they didn’t, I think they would have struggled,” Shuchuk said.The eight Gopher freshmen have combined for 89 points including 36 goals, which is the second best mark in the country for a freshman class behind only Boston College. The Gopher offense has received contributions from all throughout the lineup, which has helped make Minnesota the fourth-best offensive attack in the country with a 3.65 goals per game average.But the big reason why the Gophers are currently the top-ranked team in the country is that they’re not limited to relying on their offense. Minnesota allows the third-fewest goals per game in the country at 1.96, as sophomore goaltender Adam Wilcox ranks in the top 10 nationally in goals-against-average and save percentage.With refined play through all three zones, the Gophers will certainly pose a big test for Wisconsin this weekend, but the intensity of the series in the past should hold up this weekend and make for two very competitive games.“When you’re chasing the No. 1 team, there’s always a little extra fun to it,” Zengerle said.“They’re No. 1. It’s on our ice, students are back and it’s just got every degree to be an exciting weekend. Our whole locker room just wants it to be [Thursday] night at 7:30 right now.”last_img read more


1xBet’s Evgeniy Kiriushin: Embracing the fast-growing esports market

first_img BetInvest: The benefits of separating esports betting markets August 7, 2020 StumbleUpon Share ESI Digital – No Drama Please… Esports growth should be treated as business as usual  August 20, 2020 Share Related Articles SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 Submit Whether you have embraced the well-publicised esports revolution, or remain cynical over its status as a sport, there is no doubting its growth as a betting proposition, writes 1xBet’s Head of Business Development Evgeniy Kiriushin.Just 10 years ago few were interested in esports, but now sporting websites across the world are keen to get involved in this exciting and rapidly developing sport.There are many who remain cynical of esports and question whether the name is really justified, but even the most sceptical have to admit that whatever you call it, esports is in a league with the fastest growing sports in the market.1xBet has always tried to stay ahead of the game by keeping up with the latest esports trends and developments. We took our first bets in November 2011, when the StarCraft sequel was one of the most popular games. Then, in December of the same year, we started taking bets on Counter-Strike.We had spent 18 months studying the new sport, exploring opportunities, assessing the risk, and checking for unforeseen pitfalls. Eventually, we gained the experience we needed to enter the market with a product which would quickly become a frontrunner in the betting industry.Our esports portfolio has since expanded from two (StarCraft II and Counter-Strike) to five permanent sports (with the addition of Dota 2, League of Legends and Overwatch). We have even taken this further for customers who are unable to watch live streams by developing a product which is unrivalled amongst our competitors – an information board for Counter-Strike and Dota 2.The great thing about this sport is that alongside the more mainstream games, such as Counter Strike and Dota 2, there are lesser known games with a similarly dedicated fanbase. It’s for this reason we often offer bets on Heroes of the Storm, WarCraft III, Hearthstone, Quake Champions, Call of Duty, and the old favorite, StarCraft: Brood War, a cult real-time strategy video game.We also have FIFA simulators and fighting games such as Mortal Kombat. These games are included in tournaments and have their own leagues, championships, legends and champions.While other companies cling to basic market choices, 1xBet has considered what esports customers are really looking for. Games contain too many exciting and unexpected moments to be reduced to simple “Team 1 To Win” or “Team 2 To Win” bets.Total frags? Of course. First Blood? Absolutely! Round Winner? Most definitely! And these are just a few from our standard set of markets – we also have special bets including player selections and individual player records, to name just a couple of examples.As with traditional sports, unexpected player transfers and last-minute exchanges occur in esports. And while bets on transfers have become commonplace in mainstream sports, they are still novel in esports. We have become one of the first companies to offer bets on transfers, even down to semi-professional level, while we are prepared to extend the market to include local competitions.By the way, what have you heard about fantasy leagues? You have probably heard of fantasy football, but have you heard of fantasy esports? We are gradually developing in this direction and will continue to do so. We have lots of interesting ideas in store for our customers…Our goal is to be the top esports betting company!last_img read more
