    Norwegian daily Aftenposten says it has infuriated WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange by leaking the same documents as WikiLeaks but at a different pace and in a different order, according to an AFP report.snip...since last December, it has been leaking the secrets independent of the script for gradual release of the documents that Assange agreed upon with five of the world's leading newspapers.snipUnder Assange’s plan, WikiLeaks made a deal with five major publications — The New York Times, Le Monde, El Pais, The Guardian and Der Spiegel — to read and gradually publish the diplomatic cables. Aftenposten, meanwhile, has created its...

    Zoe Rosso, who is 3 years old... Like many children her age, she sometimes has difficulty making it to the toilet on time. That's why she was suspended from her preschool. snip The principal escorted Zoe and her mother, Betsy Rosenblatt Rosso, from the building Dec. 3. "The principal told me that Zoe had had enough chances," Rosso said. "That seemed absurd to me. It came as a total shock." Now, Rosso - who had to effectively shut down her business for a month while she scrambled to find child care and still had to pay the preschool's $835 monthly...

    National Organization for Women website ^ | October 28, 2010 | National Organization for Women
    NOW to Media: Stop Reducing Women Candidates to Sex Objects Statement of NOW President Terry O'Neill October 28, 2010 Sexist, misogynist attacks against women have no place in the electoral process, regardless of a particular candidate's political ideology. Today the tabloid website Gawker published an anonymous piece titled "I Had A One-Night Stand With Christine O'Donnell" that takes the routine sexual degradation of women candidates to a disgusting new low. NOW repudiates Gawker's decision to run this piece. It operates as public sexual harassment. And like all sexual harassment, it targets not only O'Donnell, but all women contemplating stepping into...

    Daily KOS | September 20, 2010 | Markos Moulitsas
    This week, the Senate will vote on an amendment to attach the DREAM Act to the Department of Defense appropriations bill. The DREAM Act gives undocumented persons who were brought to America as children a path to citizenship if they complete two years of college or military service. This is a winnable fight. Six Republican Senators are either co-sponsors of the DREAM Act or have voted for it in the past. Join with Daily Kos and SEIU to call your Senators, asking them to support passage of the DREAM Act amendment: Click here to call your Senators. Anti-immigrant forces are...

    National Council on Family Relations ^ | May 2003 | National Council on Family Relations
    The results presented in this article replicate findings from previous research: Women who cohabit prior to marriage or who have premarital sex have an increased likelihood of marital disruption. Considering the joint effects of premarital cohabitation and premarital sex, as well as histories of premarital relationships, extends previous research. The most salient finding from this analysis is that women whose intimate premarital relationships are limited to their husbands—either premarital sex alone or premarital cohabitation—do not experience an increased risk of divorce. It is only women who have more than one intimate premarital relationship who have an elevated risk of marital...
  • Women set to bear 72% of British austerity cuts, report shows

    The Washington Post ^ | August 30, 2010 | Anthony Faiola
    As Britain prepares for the deepest budget cuts in generations to tackle a crippling mound of public debt, the government is facing a pressing legal question: Is its austerity plan sexist? ... Women, recent studies here show, are far more dependent on the state than men. Women are thus set to bear a disproportionate amount of the pain, prompting a legal challenge that could scuttle the government's fiscal crusade and raise fairness questions over deficit-cutting campaigns underway from Greece to Spain, and in the United States when it eventually moves to curb spending. One major target in Britain, for instance,...

    Telegraph ^ | 06 Aug 2010 | Neil Lyndon
    A study published this week by Dr Catherine Hakim of the London School of Economics has found that men do slightly more work than the women they live with when employment and domestic work are measured togetherEver since the late Sixties, it has been an incontestable article of faith in the feminist creed that men are lazy, slobbish, barbaric, barely civilisable and incapable of switching on the vacuum cleaner without breaking it ...It has been an essential tenet in the feminist catechism – endlessly repeated on Woman’s Hour and in the Guardian – that men exploit and oppress women at...

    World Net Daily ^ | July 5, 2010 | Vox Day
    The fourth of July is the day to celebrate American independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. But what is the significance of independence from Great Britain when America is kept in dependence by Washington, D.C., and in the case of 11 once-sovereign states, forcibly so? Regardless of what one thinks of the left-leaning Obama voters, it is eminently clear that they did not vote for a Vietnam-like expansion of the war in Afghanistan. Nor did they vote for the assassination of American citizens without trial, government kidnappings on foreign lands or the continued use of an extra-constitutional jail on...

    The Guardian ^ | January 4, 2010 | Alan Travis
    The rapid introduction of full body scanners at British airports threatens to breach child protection laws which ban the creation of indecent images of children, the Guardian has learned. Privacy campaigners claim the images created by the machines are so graphic they amount to "virtual strip-searching" and have called for safeguards to protect the privacy of passengers involved. Ministers now face having to exempt under 18s from the scans or face the delays of introducing new legislation to ensure airport security staff do not commit offences under child pornography laws.More...

    The Truth About Cars ^ | December 29, 2009 | Cammy Corrigan
    First, they sold the most amount of cars in the world, then, they started cost cutting and now, Toyota are taking another big step towards becoming GM. The Charleston Daily Mail reports that the managers of Toyota’s manufacturing plant in Buffalo, West Virginia have allowed workers to distribute union literature during breaks at the plant. There’d been grumblings about unionisation for some time. Last month, some Toyota employees, (with the backing of the UAW, naturally), filed a grievance with the National Labour Relations Board’s regional office in Cincinnati. They wanted to distribute union material but were stopped by Toyota managers....

    A bipartisan group on Tuesday waded into such thorny issues as term limits and how state Supreme Court justices are selected as part of its recommendations on what should be changed in Michigan's 43-year-old state constitution. ... With a board made up of former elected officials and private citizens and advisory help from an even wider group of state policy experts, Citizens for Michigan came up with 63 changes it thinks should be made. Among its strongest recommendations is taking steps to make it harder for outsiders to change Michigan's constitution. ... It noted the attempt earlier this year by...
