We hope that the German and French police will quickly identify and arrest all those who organized and carried out these attacks.“The Turkish media should stop being regarded as extensions of the political forces in Turkey. Attacks on Zaman must not be used to target the government just as pro-Kurdish newspapers should not have to suffer because of the government’s fight against the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). It is disturbing that journalists are increasingly paying a physical price for the persistent polarization of the Turkish media.” The attack on the premises of Zaman France in the Paris suburb of Pantin was carried out at 2:40 p.m. on 15 February by about 15 hooded individuals, who threatened the journalists and ransacked the offices. No one was hurt but employees were traumatized and the damage was considerable. Computers, furniture, doors and windows were all smashed.The newspaper has requested police protection and plans to move to a new location. It was the third attack on its premises in six months.On the evening of the same day, individuals threw Molotov cocktails that damaged the entrance to the Zaman office in the German city of Cologne and attacked a nearby Turkish café soon afterwards. Two suspects, aged 17 and 22, were arrested.The staff of Zaman France said the attack on their premises was claimed by the “Euphrates Revolutionary Revenge Brigade,” a small group that identifies itself as a PKK ally. The German police are also working on the assumption that the Cologne attack was the work of supporters of Kurdish separatists. The attacks took place on the anniversary of PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan’s arrest in 1999.The 28-year-old conflict between the Turkish government and PKK recently hotted up again with a series of deadly PKK attacks on Turkish soldiers and Turkish military bombardments of PKK bases in northern Iraq.Turkey’s press is increasingly becoming a hostage to this conflict. Several dozen journalists working for leftist or pro-Kurdish media have been arbitrarily detained in recent months in an investigation into the KCK, a network accused of supporting the PKK. Around 30 who were arrested in simultaneous raids in several cities in December have still not been told what they are charged with. Arrests are continuing.

Shelby previously held the position of chairman of the Senate Banking Committee from 2003 to 2006.Shelby, 80, is replacing retiring Senator Tim Johnson (D-South Dakota) as chairman of the committee.”It is an honor to lead the Senate Banking Committee in the 114th Congress,” Shelby said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues in the House and Senate to implement policies that will foster economic growth.”The standing rules of the Senate say that the committee has jurisdiction over legislation concerning such subjects as public and private housing, including veterans’ housing; federal monetary policy, including the Federal Reserve System; banks, banking, and financial institutions; deposit insurance; economic stabilization and defense production; and many others.Shelby will have just two years to lead the committee under GOP party rules. Despite working against the clock, many analysts and observers believe that his experience and longtime involvement with the committee will allow him to speed up the committee’s activity.Analysts believe that one of Shelby’s top priorities as Senate Banking Committee chairman will be taking on issues with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act in 2010 and in particular concerns over the activities of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which formed a year after the Dodd-Frank Act was passed. There are reported to be several proposed bills regarding financial regulation reform in the House that have yet to make their way to the Senate due to outgoing chair Tim Johnson’s opposition to such reform.

As for the inn, don’t expect any sudden closures. Scofield and Arthur seemed a bit offended by the very suggestion. “We have guest reservations for next July. We would never shut down like that. Inns will often take two years to sell, it’s a big commitment.” “I’m going to miss it terribly. Our staff is like family. Katie (Arthur)’s been with us for 19 years, one of our housekeepers has been here 12 years and never taken a sick day, I can’t wrap my head around not being here with everybody and the guests,” said Scofield. Tagged: downtown ithaca, hotels, katie arthur, lynnette scofield, william henry miller inn Brian Crandall Scofield is proud of the impression she and her inn staff have left on guests. “We’ve had several guests make us quilts, one of the inn itself. A guest made a total replica of the house in a glass case, it’s just been a remarkable way to earn a living.” After four months of renovations, the William Henry Miller Inn opened on March 4, 1999. With her husband initially, and later with business partners Dave Bier and Katie Arthur, Scofield’s inn has garnered hundreds of enthusiastic reviews from travelers near and far. The attentive service, home-like warmth, and sumptuous accommodations have earned the inn many accolades over the years – Scofield was named 2013’s “Innkeeper of the Year” by Select Registry, the international association for independent hotels, lodges and B&Bs. For those who are wondering if it’s time to bid their farewells to Scofield as she sets out for other towns, don’t worry, she’ll still be around, and still an active part of the community. “I’m president of the United Way board, a part of Foodnet…I love this city, there’s no way I’d leave.” The feet that fill those shoes first stepped through the doors of the Stowell-Osborn house in 1998. The house at 303 North Aurora Street has long been a part of Ithaca’s fabric. Built in 1878 for a prominent local grocer and his family, the Osborns purchased the building in 1914, and called it home for over eighty years. Agda Osborn, a Cornell pre-med student-turned-permanent resident, would become a prominent community organizer and a keystone of local philanthropic efforts. However, Osborn wasn’t a fan of every community effort – the county wanted to buy her house and tear it down to build the then-new county library in the 1960s, but was promptly rebuffed. The William Henry Miller Inn has welcomed tens of thousands of guests into its tidy brick and wood-trimmed walls over the years, and now the time has come to pass the torch to the next person. For those who might like to slip their own shoes into an innkeeper’s role, Scofield has some advice on what characters qualities will serve them best. “We can’t quite conceive her not being involved every day,” added Arthur. Image property of the William Henry Miller Inn. Lynnette Scofield, the owner and proprietor of the nine-bedroom inn, has decided the time has come to rest on her laurels and ease into a well-earned retirement. But alas, Scofield and her partners have decided the time has come for a new owner. Earlier this week, the inn was listed for sale, with an asking price of $1.499 million. The listing implies a strong preference towards those who wish to become innkeepers themselves – it would come with all the furnishings, future bookings, and of course, the nine-bedroom inn with accessory unit for the innkeeeper’s residence. “One, a sense of humor. Two, knowledge of where you live, because you’re asked questions every day. Three, a curiosity, because you’ll meet people from all over the world, what they do, and where they come from. And also compassion, we never know why people are here, and compassion is a big part of this.” Scofield pauses for a moment. “And good shoes, you gotta have good shoes.” For those intrigued and aspiring to take the storied establishment into its next chapter, local real estate agency Howard Hanna is fielding inquiries. In the meanwhile, Scofield, Arthur and their staff will continue to provide the high-class inn experience they’re known for. “The average length of an innkeeper’s life is seven years, and we’ve done it for 20 years. My feet hurt,” Scofield says with a laugh. “I am hitting a milestone birthday. We work seven days a week. I love being downtown, but the feet hurt. You can ask anybody who knows me how much I love shoes, nice shoes, but I’m now wearing old lady shoes.” ITHACA, N.Y. — For two decades, it’s been a staple of Downtown Ithaca. The lively glow of a fireplace, the delectable scent of baked goods, a steaming cup of coffee, and fresh sheets awaiting guests from places near and far, each visitor on their own unique path that brings them to the city of gorges. “It’s just been our pleasure to say ‘how can we help you’, and our door is always open. We meet all sorts of people, governors, sports players, actors, really good looking actors…it has been a wonderful once in a lifetime experience.” Brian Crandall reports on housing and development for the Ithaca Voice.

welcomia/iStock(NEW YORK) — The family of a man who was shot 11 times with a stun gun, allegedly including on his testicles, is suing the city of Glendale, Arizona, and the three officers they say were involved in the incident.Johnny Wheatcroft had been sitting in the passenger seat of a parked car with his family and one friend in a Motel 6 parking lot when police officers approached the vehicle on July 26, 2017, according to the civil complaint. They had planned to reserve a room for family time, the complaint said.Police, however, said in a statement from the city of Glendale that they had observed the vehicle Wheatcroft was in commit a traffic violation and that after speaking with the driver, Shawn Blackburn, they discovered that Blackburn did not have a license on him.In police bodycam footage released by the City of Glendale, tensions escalated as the officers allege that Wheatcroft appears to shove something between the seat and the center console.“I don’t want you stuffing anything down in between the seat like you’re doing,” says Officer Matt Schneider, who unholsters his stun gun and points it at Wheatcroft’s neck.The statement said that Officer Schneider and his partner Mark Lindsey attempted to remove Wheatcroft from the vehicle “for the safety of themselves and those around them” and so that they could “maintain a safe eye on him for the duration of the traffic stop.”However, within seconds, the entire scene unfolds into chaos: Wheatcroft, while tangled in his seat belt, is stunned repeatedly. His wife, Anya Chapman, allegedly hits another police officer in the head with a bag full of bottled drinks, according to the city statement. Wheatcroft’s children can be heard in the video screaming and crying from the back seat, asking their father if he is okay.Officer Schneider continues trying to extract Wheatcroft from the front seat but he remains tangled in his seatbelt. Finally, Wheatcroft’s son crawls into the front seat and releases his father, who is dragged away from the car. Schneider, meanwhile, tells the son to get out and stand in front of the car. The boy, visibly afraid, ignores the officer and starts crying hysterically in the front passenger seat instead, the video shows. As more officers arrive onto the scene, one arrests Chapman while another tends to their son, removing him from the car, the video shows.“Please don’t take my mommy,” the boy could be heard screaming in the video.“Wheatcroft… was handcuffed on the ground… Schneider [then] pulled down [Wheatcroft’s] shorts and tased his testicles and perineum,” according to the complaint.“Keep fighting and you’re going to get it again,” Schneider can be heard saying in the bodycam footage.The footage continues to show Wheatcroft being lifted off the ground. As officers do this, Wheatcroft says that he can’t breathe and that he has chest pains, to which Schneider can be heard saying, “Well, you shouldn’t have been stupid then.”Wheatcroft is then seen on the bodycam footage being led off to a police car and placed in the back seat.Following the incident, Wheatcroft was charged with aggravated assault. He “was then wrongfully detained in the Maricopa County jail for approximately two months,” according to a statement from Wheatcroft’s lawyers.Wheatcroft’s case was ultimately dismissed after the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office declined to press charges.“Through the process of reviewing evidence in the case involving Mr. Wheatcroft prosecutors reviewed the video and determined there was no likelihood of conviction due to the totality of the events leading to the arrest,” according to a Maricopa County Attorney’s Office statement given to ABC News.“At the same time, prosecutors looked at the video and, due to the totality of the events, determined at that time the actions of the officer also did not meet the charging standard of — reasonable likelihood of conviction,” continued the statement.The Glendale Police Department also conducted a review of the officers’ actions and “discipline [was] implemented regarding certain tactics used by one officer,” according to a statement by the City of Glendale.Wheatcroft is currenly serving a five-year sentence for an unrelated burglary in the third degree. He had previously been incarcerated multiple times for drug paraphernalia, theft and burglary.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
iStock/Kameleon007By: SONY SALZMAN, ABC News (NEW YORK) — From the start, the founders of Black Lives Matter have always put LGBTQ voices at the center of the conversation. The movement was founded by three Black women, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi, two of whom identify as queer.By design, the movement they started in 2013 has remained organic, grassroots and diffuse. Since then, many of the largest Black Lives Matter protests have been fueled by the violence against Black men, including Mike Brown and Eric Garner in 2015, and now George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.But it’s not only straight, cisgender Black men who are dying at the hands of police. Last month, a Black transgender man, Tony McDade, 38, was shot and killed by police in Tallahassee.On June 9, two Black transgender women, Riah Milton and Dominique “Rem’mie” Fells, also were killed in separate acts of violence, their killings believed to be the 13th and 14th of transgender or gender-non-conforming people this year, according to the Human Rights Coalition.And in 2019, Layleen Polanco, a trans Latina woman who was an active member of New York’s Ballroom community, died while in solitary confinement at Rikers Island jail.“We are a prime target because of our Blackness, and our intersectionality of being trans adds an extra target on our backs,” said Jonovia Chase, co-lead organizer of House Lives Matter, a community organization composed of sexual- and gender-minority people of color.Chase said that although Black Lives Matter was “created by queer folks, [cisgender] privilege has taken precedent over gay and transgender people.”While Chase and other LGBTQ advocates of color clearly condemn the deaths of George Floyd, Amaud Arbuery and countless other cisgender Black men, they’re also quick to call attention to other acts of violence against Black LBGTQ people that garner less national media attention.They often point to Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, a trans woman of color, who helped kickstart the LGBTQ rights movement following the Stonewall uprising of the 1960s only to watch as many hard-fought rights and privileges benefited white gay men and women but weren’t extended to people like them.“It’s another example about how the Black queer community has been in the forefront leading, however, we’re not being seen or heard or valued,” Chase added.However, organizers say there are clear signs times are changing, and that Black LGBTQ voices are increasingly taking center stage in nationwide conversations about race, discrimination and police violence.In recent weeks, people have turned out in never-before-seen numbers to support the LGBQT community of color — and especially Black transgender people.Last week in Brooklyn, an estimated 15,000 people turned out for a demonstration called The Black Trans Lives Matter rally, aka “Brooklyn Liberation,” making it one of the largest transgender-focused protests in history, according to the organizers.In Los Angeles, tens of thousands more gathered in Hollywood for the All Black Lives Matter protest, intended to be inclusive and centered on LGBTQ members of BLM.And on Juneteenth, to celebrate the day the last enslaved people were informed of their freedom, celebrations across the country sought “intersectional” celebrations of the Black experience in the United StatesIn Harlem, in New York City, hundreds gathered for a massive celebration of music and art intended to “lift up and center Black Queer and Trans folks” in an event co-organized by The Blacksmiths, Intersectional Voices Collective and the Wide Awakes.“More people are also becoming educated and intentional at this moment,” said Niama Safia Sandy, who’s on the steering committee of The Blacksmiths, a coalition of artists, curators, culture producers and organizers committed to Black liberation and equality.“It is just not possible to turn a blind eye away from these things anymore,” Sandy said.Clad in face masks and handing out hand sanitizer, hundreds turned out to dance, sing and march along historic Black landmarks on a hot day Harlem.Eventually, the parade-like crowd landed at St. Nicholas Park, where members of New York City’s ballroom community greeted protestors with elaborate voguing performances, a dancing style born in the queer ballroom scene that has since been popularized by Madonna, Rihanna and Ariana Grande.“It’s rare that we get opportunities to come together as a Black community and specifically center the trans and queer community,” said Chase, who helped organize the Juneteenth celebration in Harlem.During one performance, model and poet Linda LaBeija, a member of the House Ballroom community, read a spoken-word poem called, “Vogue, bitch,” to a thunderous crowd of more than 300 people.“How many of those beacons of light must we lose along the way?” LaBeija asked the crowd, referring to the Black trans women who have been the victims of violence.And as Black Lives Matter protesters continue to remember George Floyd and others killed at the hands of police, LaBeija asked, “Are you including Black trans women in that list of Black names?”As a Black transgender woman, Deja Smith said she’s learned the hard way how difficult life can be for people like her in the United States.“It has been a struggle most of the way here,” said Smith, a founding member of the Intersectional Voices Collective and director of makeup artistry for DDPRO.“But over the last three to five years things have started to ease up, leading to this moment today where I just thought I would never see a crowd of Black, queer and trans people of like minds, getting along, and speaking to our ancestry.”Smith credits the founders of Black Lives Matter for creating space for LGBTQ voices from the start.“It has always been part of their cultural movement,” she said.

Facing grave uncertainties of their office needs, many office tenants opted for short-term lease extensions, while others listed part of their offices for subleasing.[CO] — Akiko Matsuda

Tags: Pac-12/Tyler Huntley/Utah Utes Football September 29, 2019 /Sports News – Local Huntley leads No. 19 Utah past Washington State 38-13 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Tyler Huntley passed for two touchdowns and ran for two more, powering No. 19 Utah over Washington State 38-13 in the rain on Saturday night.Huntley completed 21 of 30 passes for 334 yards. He didn’t attempt a pass in the fourth quarter as Utah (4-1 overall, 1-1 Pac-12) went conservative to claim its first win against the Cougars since 2012.Anthony Gordon may have set a conference-record nine touchdown passes last week, but it was Huntley who stood out from the get-go. He completed eight of his first 10 passes for two TDs, notwithstanding a wide-open drop in the end zone.Utah followed the axiom that the best defense against a high-powered offense is to just keep the ball away. The Utes spent 7:40 on the opening drive of the second half and reached the 1-yard-line before settling for a Jadon Redding 28-yard field goal.After Jaylon Johnson’s interception, Derrick Vickers rushed for a seven-yard touchdown, giving Utah a 31-13 lead. The Cougars already seemed to have run out of time.The Cougars only managed seven plays for 26 yards in the third quarter as the Utes took control.Then WSU embarked their own long drive (7:06) in the fourth, but was stopped at the 2-yard-line when Julian Blackmon tackled Max Borghi on fourth down.After becoming the first WSU quarterback to top 400 yards passing in his first four starts, Gordon threw for 229 yards but had two interceptions, including Francis Bernard’s pick with 5:26 to play.Utah’s defense only allowed one play over 20 yards the entire game.Utah had 325 yards in first half — averaging 9 yards a play— which was more than the Cougars managed all game. WSU came in with the No. 1 passing attack in the nation at nearly 500 yards a game, but had just 252 yards through the air and just 313 yards of total offense.Samson Nacua, filling in for leading receiver Britain Covey, had five catches for 90 yards, and Bryan Thompson had four receptions for 111 yards.There were whispers that Covey may redshirt as he hasn’t healed fully from offseason knee surgery and has played the maximum of four games.Borghi had 51 yards rushing and nine catches for 70 yards for the Cougars.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Utes fell nine places after losing to USC, but their stout defense re-emerged to accompany a potent offense. There were many upsets, so Utah doesn’t figure to rise too far.THE TAKEAWAYWashington State: After the astounding collapse against UCLA last week, the defense wasn’t much better Saturday as Utah romped to 526 yards. In addition, Gordon and the offense could never get rolling to try and outscore the Utes.Utah: Behind the masterful play of Huntley, the Utes didn’t miss Moss much and the defense was sturdy and kept everything in front of them throughout the game. Utah only punted once and played it safe with yet another game ending turnover-free.UP NEXTWashington State has a bye next week and then visits Arizona State on Oct. 12.The Utes also rest next week and then play at Oregon State on Oct. 12.
