“Don’t ask, don’t tell” (DADT) was the official United States policy on homosexuals serving in the military from December 21, 1993 to September 20, 2011. The policy prohibited military personnel from discriminating against or harassing closeted homosexual or bisexual service members or applicants, while barring openly gay, lesbian, or bisexual persons from military service. The restrictions were mandated by United States federal law Pub.L. 103-160 (10 U.S.C. § 654). The policy prohibited people who “demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts” from serving in the armed forces of the United States, because their presence “would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.” - – wanna Read more, CLICK
Cherokee Nation, Federal Government Fight Over Rights Of Freed Slave Descendants
TULSA, Okla. — The Cherokee Nation’s election commission voted Wednesday to allow descendants of slaves once owned by tribal members to cast ballots for principal chief, but they’ll only count in the event of a court order. Federal officials objected to a ruling last month by the tribe’s highest court that found only people of direct Cherokee ancestry could be members of the tribe and vote in the upcoming election, essentially denying ballots to some 2,800 freedmen descendants. While the election commission’s vote doesn’t directly overturn the ruling by the Cherokee Nation Supreme Court, it does allow for freedmen to cast provisional ballots in an effort to make the election results stand, regardless of how the courts ultimately rule. “If a court decides the freedmen descendants can vote we will have the ability to certify the election,” Election Commission chairwoman Susan Plumb said. “If the court decides they cannot vote, we will still be able to preserve the election.”

Of all the challenges that parenting brings, this is one that few consider they might have to face. Halfway through a moving documentary about her firstborn’s life, the singer Cher falters. There isn’t much sign of emotion in her face – thanks to all that cosmetic help – but it is there in her voice and eyes. She refers to her child as ‘she’, then ‘he’, admitting she is ‘struggling with the pronouns’. ‘At some point, I’ll have to start calling her “him”,’ she concedes.
In law, there is no confusion. Chaz Bono – born to famous parents Sonny and Cher in 1969 – has been male for the past year, since his female-to-male sex change. Before that, ‘she’ was Chastity Bono, a grown-up, mixed-up version of the cute little girl with blonde ringlets who made her public debut on her parents’ TV show. There were many parts of the Sonny and Cher story that did not live up to the all-American dream. The I’ve Got You Babe singers divorced in 1975 and there were accusations of wife-beating and controlling behaviour.

Forgiving the student loan debt of all Americans will have an immediate stimulative effect on our economy. With the stroke of the President’s pen, millions of Americans would suddenly have hundreds, or in some cases, thousands of extra dollars in their pockets each and every month with which to spend on ailing sectors of the economy. As consumer spending increases, businesses will begin to hire, jobs will be created and a new era of innovation, entrepreneurship and prosperity will be ushered in for all. A rising tide does, in fact, lift all boats – forgiving student loan debt, rather than tax cuts for corporations, millionaires and billionaires, has a MUCH greater chance of helping to rise that tide in a MUCH shorter time-frame. The future economic success of this country is wholly dependent upon a well-educated, prosperous middle class. Instead of saddling entire generations with debt from which there is no escape, let’s empower the American people to grow this economy on their own! ”
Therefore, we, the undersigned, strongly encourage Congress and the President to support H. Res 365, introduced by Rep. Hansen Clarke (D-MI), seeking student loan forgiveness as a means of economic stimulus.”

The results of a recent study suggest that a daily dose of intranasal insulin could help improve memory skills in people suffering from Alzheimer’s-linked memory problems. It found that people with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease or a pre-Alzheimer’s condition known as amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) who used the insulin spray for four months either improved slightly or remained the same in tests of memory. Further investigation is needed before any definitive conclusions about the effectiveness of this treatment can be drawn, but researchers find these preliminary results encouraging. – More [ FILM: Contagion ]
