Women’s college offers program to help students cope with disappointment

by Jennifer Kabbany – Fix Editor Distraught and inconsolable when they score less than an A-minus’ Smith College, a top-ranked liberal arts school for women, is teaching them that life comes with disappointment, rejection, stumbling blocks — and it’s OK to experience such hurdles and learn from them. The Massachusetts-based elite university, which costs about $67,000 annually in tuition, fees and other expenses, has rolled out a new program called “Failing Well.” And while the name implies it’s helping the young women cope with life’s really big screw ups, the fine print illustrates the initiative is actually more about...

State of ‘Collapse’: Italy Overwhelmed as 13,500 African Migrants Arrive in Past Two Days

by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D. Italy’s migrant welcome centers are in a state of “collapse” as huge waves of African migrants take advantage of the temperate climate to make the crossing from Libya to the Italian peninsula. On Tuesday, 8,500 African migrants are reaching Italian shores aboard 14 different ships, adding to the 5,000 who arrived on Monday. The massive arrivals have led local media as well as politicians to speak of an authentic immigrant “invasion” exceeding the country’s capacity of assimilation. Officials reported on June 15 that more than 65,000 migrants had arrived since the beginning of the...

China Events of 2016

More than three decades after pledging to “reform and open up,” there are few signs the Chinese Communist Party intends to change its authoritarian posture. Under the leadership of President Xi Jinping, who will remain in power until 2022 and possibly beyond, the outlook for fundamental human rights, including freedoms of expression, assembly, association and religion, remains dire. China made modest improvements in a few areas in 2016. These include trial regulations promulgated in February that may reduce the rate of pretrial detention, the Supreme People’s Court’s continued efforts to retry cases of wrongful convictions and executions, and the...

U.S. Declares China Among Worst Human Traffickers

Trump administration leaves Obama’s upgrades of Cuba, Malaysia intact BY: Susan Crabtree Follow @susancrabtree The United States placed China on a list of nations considered to be the worst human trafficking offenders, a move that could exacerbate tensions with Beijing following an easing of relations in the first few months of the Trump administration. The public rebuke to China could complicate efforts by the United States to persuade Beijing to help curb North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs. China’s downgrade puts the country among the list of the world’s worst human rights offenders, including Iran, Syria, and Russia....

Supreme Court Decision about Same-Sex Parents and Birth Certificates Defies Science and Biology

Wait, did Bill Nye write the opinion? by M.J. Randolph hildren need to know about their biological parents for many reasons, including those related to health histories. That’s why it’s a pretty big deal for birth certificates to list the biological parents of the child in an accurate manner. In some cases, however, non-biological parents who are spouses are also listed on the birth certificate. But two lesbian couples in Arkansas didn’t like being merely listed. Instead, they “wanted to overthrow the basic purpose of birth certificates in non-artificial insemination cases: listing the biological parents of a child.”  The case, Pavan...

White House Says It Will Fake “Chemical Weapon Attack” In Syria

Source: Moon of Alabama  The White House claims that the Syrian government is preparing “chemical weapon attacks”. This is clearly not the case. Syria is winning the war against the country. Any such attack would clearly be to its disadvantage. The White House announcement must thereby be understood as preparation for another U.S. attack on Syria in “retaliation” for an upcoming staged “chemical weapon attack” which will be blamed on the Syrian government. In August 2013 Syria invited inspectors of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to investigate chemical weapons attacks on the Syrian army. As soon...
