    Amy Cooper, a white woman who was publicly shamed and fired by her employer after calling the police on African American birdwatcher Christian Cooper who asked her to leash her dog in Central Park, said her “entire life is being destroyed right now.” After the immense backlash against Amy, Christian is now saying he is uncomfortable with the response, according to the New York Times. “It’s a little bit of a frenzy, and I am uncomfortable with that,” he said.

    At a blood donation bank in Cologne, western Germany, empty bags sit ready to be filled. A few forms, a quick measure of blood pressure, a scratch on the arm, and seven minutes later donors have made their 500-ml contribution to the 15,000 blood donations needed every day in Germany. The footfall of donors, now wearing face masks due to the coronavirus pandemic, is steady, but not fast enough. Germany’s blood reserves are running low. Under usual circumstances, the German Red Cross (DRK) — which covers two-thirds of Germany’s blood supplies — would aim to have enough blood reserves for...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Larry Kramer, the playwright whose angry voice and pen raised theatergoers’ consciousness about AIDS and roused thousands to militant protests in the early years of the epidemic, has died at 84. Bill Goldstein, a writer who was working on a biography of Kramer, confirmed the news to The Associated Press. Kramer’s husband, David Webster, told The New York Times that Kramer died Wednesday of pneumonia. “We have lost a giant of a man who stood up for gay rights like a warrior. His anger was needed at a time when gay men’s deaths to AIDS were...

    The first same-sex weddings have taken place in Costa Rica, the first Central American country to equalise its marriage legislation. A lesbian couple became the first to tie the knot in a ceremony that took place just after the new law came into effect at midnight. The wedding was shown on national TV. President Carlos Alvarado said the law change meant Costa Rica now recognised the rights lesbian and gay people had always deserved.

    Abortion activists disrupted a pro-life organization’s virtual graduation ceremony last week by hacking into the video and displaying pornography and Nazi images to the students. Students for Life of America hosted the event May 20 with OANN’s Liz Wheeler. Breitbart reports someone hacked into their broadcast and showed graphic gay pornography and Nazi images to more than 100 pro-life students in what is being called a “Zoom bomb.” SFLA President Kristan Hawkins said her organization is filing reports with the FBI and police. “During the graduation events, hackers stole another memory from students and seized control of the broadcast, sending...

    ROSARIO, Argentina - During a liturgy on Tuesday marking the revolution that led to Argentina’s independence, the cardinal of Buenos Aires issued a strong message of support for the nationwide measures imposed to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. “We all know that defending the people means an economic meltdown. It would be sad if we opted for the opposite,” said Cardinal Mario Aurelio Poli, handpicked by Pope Francis to replace him as archbishop of Buenos Aires. Speaking during a Te Deum - a traditional Church service for thanksgiving - the cardinal referred to the pandemic as “a virus...

    The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed millions of dollars to research treatments and vaccines for COVID-19 as the pandemic continues to spread across the globe. Those endeavors are now fueling a lot of conspiracy theories. Of course even Bill Gates made some strange comments that fueled those conspiracy theories. Back in March he said, the country needs to go much further with a longer, coordinate shutdown to effectively turn back the spread of the disease. “We’re entering to a tough period that if we do it right we’ll only have to do it once, for six to 10...

    I remember as a twenty-two-year-old being excited when I saw a new book called the The Mists of Avalon by an author called Marion Zimmer Bradley. Mists was presented as the retelling of the Arthurian legend from the point of view of the women of Camelot, which I thought was a thrilling idea. However, I found the book heavy on paganism and morbid, explicit sex scenes, but light on romance, heroism, chivalry, mystery, faith and all the qualities I had come to love in the Camelot stories. I never read any of the author's other books and did not care...

    No, Prof. Pinker, Belief in an Afterlife is Not a ‘Malignant Delusion’ A May 20 Washington Post op-ed claimed that evangelical Christians are behind the Republican push to reopen the nation. In response, Harvard psychology professor Steven Pinker tweeted on May 21, “Belief in an afterlife is a malignant delusion, since it devalues actual lives and discourages action that would make them longer, safer, and happier. Exhibit A: What’s really behind Republicans wanting a swift reopening? Evangelicals.” (The tweet has since been removed.)Prof. Pinker, a self-described atheist, is wrong on all points. (Practical lesson: You can be a brilliant Harvard scientist...

    So many mysteries surround Donald Trump: the contents of his tax returns, the apparent miracle of his graduation from college. Some of them are merely curiosities; others are of national importance, such as whether he understood the nuclear-weapons briefing given to every president. I prefer not to dwell on this question. But since his first day as a presidential candidate, I have been baffled by one mystery in particular: Why do working-class white men—the most reliable component of Donald Trump’s base—support someone who is, by their own standards, the least masculine man ever to hold the modern presidency? The question...

    California lawmakers have passed legislation to reduce the penalty for those who knowingly or intentionally expose others to HIV without their knowledge, rolling back a law that mostly affected sex workers. The bill, SB 239, which was approved by the Democrat-controlled state legislature in September and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Friday, will lower the charges for these acts from a felony to a misdemeanor when the law goes into effect in 2018. The act of knowingly donating HIV-infected blood, also a felony now, will be decriminalized.

    A federal judge on Friday dismissed a $10 million defamation lawsuit by One America News (OAN) against Rachel Maddow, finding that a "reasonable viewer" would know the MSNBC prime-time host was only offering her opinion when she called the right-leaning network "paid Russian propaganda." "Maddow had inserted her own colorful commentary into and throughout the segment, laughing, expressing her dismay (i.e., saying 'I mean, what?') and calling the segment a 'sparkly story' and one we must 'take in stride,'" Judge Cynthia Bashant wrote Friday. ...

But unlike the bulk of freshmen, who cruise to reelection after winning their seats the first time, Riggleman is locked in a nasty Republican renomination battle against Bob Good, a Campbell County supervisor and former athletics official at Liberty University . . . “He comes out as pro-gay marriage. He comes out as pro-drug legalization, and he limps down the stretch of the nomination after it becomes revealed that he's a purple progressive...

    Michigan's attorney general said President Donald Trump will be told not to come back if he refuses to wear a face mask when he tours a Ford Motor plant outside of Detroit Thursday afternoon. 'Honestly, if he fails to wear a mask, he's going to be asked not to return to any enclosed facility inside our state,' Dana Nessel, a Democrat, told CNN. . . . Nessel threatened to take legal action against Ford Motors if the president doesn't wear a face covering.

    LANSING, Mich. – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel and 19 other AGs sent a letter Wednesday urging the Food and Drug Administration to further ease restrictions on blood donors in the LGBTQ community during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. There has been a shortage of blood during the virus outbreak and organizations have been requesting people donate if they are able. This urgent need for blood led the FDA to reduce the wait period after sexual activity for gay and bisexual men from 12 months to three months. The attorney generals said this doesn’t do enough, and pushed for a risk-based,...

    HOUSTON – An 81-year-old man is accused of killing a 65-year-old relative who died on December 2, 2019, from severe head injuries he received the month before, according to court records. Alan Bischof, 81, was charged with aggravated assault of a family member, a second-degree felony. Before 65-year-old Craig LaMell’s death, he told police he’d been walking on a bike trail near his home in the 200 block of Delmar Street in southeast Houston when he was attacked and beaten by three men, according to court records. But with no identifying information, the case went cold. Then, in April, there...
