Rhode Island protests Wal-Mart, honors Rosa Parks

first_imgOn Dec. 1, the 58th anniversary of Rosa Park’s refusal to move from her bus seat, which sparked the 382-day Montgomery bus boycott, Deborah L. Wray read an annual human rights statement for the Rhode Island Rosa Parks Human Rights Committee in the year of Rosa’s 100th birthday (Feb. 4, 1913).A Black Friday protest at Walmart in Providence, R.I., drew 35 people on Nov. 29. It was called by Occupy Providence and joined by members and the president of International Union of Painters and Allied Trades Local 195, members and staff of Laborers’ International Union of North America Local 271, Jobs with Justice, and the brand-new Campaign for Work, Wages and Well-being (C4W3) of the Rhode Island Peoples’ Assembly.The Nov. 29 protest drew enthusiastic responses from passersby, who loved the idea of an “A. Philip Randolph Minimum Wage” of $15 per hour and the idea that there should be a job for all. Among those who stopped, joined in and signed up for the new campaign was Anthony, who lost his $18-per-hour job at a local manufacturing company, which closed up and sent its work overseas. He said that jobs available were paying an average of $10 an hour and that dozens of people were competing for each opening.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

FDA fears new generation of nicotine addicts, blames e-cigarettes

first_imgTwitter Revamped enrollment process confuses some students Flu activity remains high in Texas Facebook printSmoking rates have been steadily declining over the years. However, the growing popularity of e-cigarettes has some experts worried there might be a new generation of nicotine addicts.The Washington Post reported that preliminary data from The National Adult Tobacco Survey showed a 75 percent increase in e-cigarette use among teenagers this year versus 2017.Electronic cigarettes, which rely on liquid nicotine that is inhaled through a vapor, were introduced at the turn of this century. One of the most popular brands, JUUL, recreates the nicotine levels found in cigarettes and is flavored to make the nicotine more palatable.JUUL promotes its products as an alternative for adult smokers, but it has become a gateway to nicotine addiction for teens and young adults.The appeal comes from a powerful nicotine experience without the taste or smell of cigarettes, said Oscar Espinosa, a senior economics major.Espinosa said he used to smoke cigarettes regularly — since using JUULs, he hasn’t touched a cigarette in more than a year.“I come from a family of cigarette smokers, I guess it popped onto me hereditarily,” Espinosa said. “I hate the smell of cigarettes and everyone started JUULing and I don’t know how to explain it, it’s efficient and it’s kind of different.”And it’s not just Espinosa — he said it’s hard to find someone at TCU who doesn’t JUUL.“When I started as a freshman, cigarettes were still a thing and JUUL wasn’t that big,” Espinosa said. “Junior year came around and cigarettes are out of the picture and everyone wants to JUUL — I can understand why. It’s a lot better for you honestly.”However, officials disagree.The Food and Drug Administration is threatening to pull e-cigarettes off the market if they cannot find a way to stop teenagers from vaping. They’re giving companies just 60 days to put an end to the e-cigarette craze.“A lot of the appeal around using JUULs and e-cigarettes is that it has started to transcend into a societal norm,” said Brad Stewart, associate director of health and wellness.Although officials are still learning about the long-term health effects of e-cigarettes,  Stewart said any form of addiction has its consequences.“To kick a nicotine addiction is actually harder than an addiction to heroin,” Stewart said. “Many individuals don’t realize how hard the nicotine addiction is — understand what you’re getting into and understand the repercussions of those decisions.”Electronic cigarettes are the most commonly used tobacco product among teenagers, according to the CDC.“I have a friend in a bunch of my classes who take breaks to step outside to go to the bathroom and JUUL,” said a TCU student who asked not to be identified. “People think it’s cool and then they do it and become addicted to it.”TCU is considered a tobacco-free campus, which means all forms of smoking and tobacco use are prohibited.

This kind of violation fosters a climate of fear and self-censorship and must therefore not go unpunished.”Gilberto Fernandes, the weekly’s editor, recently received threatening phone calls that were made direct to his office number. Paranaguá mayor Marcelo Roque brought three lawsuits against the newspaper in 2016 but lost each one.Molotov cocktails were thrown at the offices of the Bandeirantes TV channel in Curitiba, the capital of Paraná, on 15 February, injuring one of the building’s security guards.Brazil is ranked 103rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. to go further Follow the news on Brazil BrazilAmericas Condemning abuses Violence RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America April 15, 2021 Find out more Reports April 27, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns a shooting attack on Jornal dos Bairros Litoral, a weekly based in Paranaguá, in the southern state of Paraná.

Similar flooding has occurred at Beechgrove Avenue and Crecora Avenue and this was also reported to the Emergency Services,” Cllr McCreesh explained.The Sinn Fein politician said he had raised the issue of ongoing flooding at a section of Hyde Road over several years and it was recently discussed at a Limerick City West operational meeting.“It is hoped that a long term solution to resolve this flooding can be developed in the very near future as it is unacceptable that residents and motorists have to endure such a serious hazard,” he said.Senior engineer with Limerick City and County Council, Vincent Murray, said that the Service Operations Department responded to a report of a flood on Hyde Road at around 8.30am last Saturday.The road and footpaths were flooded with up to 250mm of water and access to the front of some houses was restricted. A diversion route around the flood was set up and the council commenced pumping operations to lower the water.“This flooding occurs a few of times a year after very heavy and intense rainfall like Ireland experienced last Friday night and Saturday morning but has never flooded before to the extent experienced last Saturday,” Mr Murray explained.“The existing surface water infrastructure in the Hyde Road area is old and while it can deal with normal levels of rainfall, is not able to cope with long and intense periods of rainfall. The City and County Council is currently working with Limerick Regeneration to provide a long term solution to the problem on Hyde road and is hopeful that this solution can be advanced in early 2016.” TAGSCllr Malachy McCreeshfloodingHyde RoadlimerickLimerick City and County CouncilSinn Fein Facebooklast_img read more

Witness who withheld evidence in William McKeeney murder trial jailed

And the judge said given his previous convictions it was obvious the 19-year-old had no regard for the law.Ishaq and Rehman were convicted of kicking Mr McKeeney to death, but the allegation that the attack had been racially motivated was deleted from the charge. They have still to be sentenced.
