Crackdowns against the Occupy Wall Street encampments across the country reached the epicenter of the movement on Tuesday, when police rousted protesters from a. The shocking truth about the crackdown on Occupy Naomi Wolf US citizens of all political persuasions are still reeling from images of unparallelled police brutality in a coordinated crackdown against peaceful OWS protesters in cities across the nation this past week. An elderly woman was pepper-sprayed in the face; the scene of unresisting, supine students at UC Davis being pepper-sprayed by phalanxes of riot police went viral online; images proliferated of young women — targeted seemingly for their gender — screaming, dragged by the hair by police in riot gear; and the pictures of a young man, stunned and bleeding profusely from the head, emerged in the record of the middle-of-the-night clearing of Zuccotti Park. But just when Americans thought we had the picture — was this crazy police and mayoral overkill, on a municipal level, in many different cities. The National Union of Journalists issued a Freedom of Information Act request to investigate possible federal involvement with law enforcement practices that appeared to target journalists. The New York Times reported that New York cops have arrested, punched, whacked, shoved to the ground and tossed a barrier at reporters and photographers covering protests. Reporters were asked by NYPD to raise their hands to prove they had credentials: Other reporters wearing press passes were arrested and roughed up by cops, after being — falsely — informed by police that It is illegal to take pictures on the sidewalk. In New York, a state supreme court justice and a New York City council member were beaten up; in Berkeley, California, one of our greatest national poets, Robert Hass, was beaten with batons. The picture darkened still further when Wonkette and Washingtonsblog.

October 29, Auto Parts Workers Rally Across Ontario CAW members in more than auto parts workplaces took part in a series of lunchtime demonstrations outside their plants during a province-wide day of action on October The protest was the culmination of months of planning and involved 15, workers across Ontario. Parts workers called for a stop to the downward pressure on working conditions, employer demands for severe contract give-backs and demanded greater respect for work ownership, including the right to follow work in the event it is relocated to other facilities — with the collective agreement in tact. CAW President Ken Lewenza told a crowd of demonstrators in the parking lot of Burlington Technologies that cutting the wages and benefits of workers will not solve the uncertainty facing the parts industry. Lewenza highlighted that demands on parts workers for concessions are not limited to unionized shops, as non-unionized workers often face much more severe cutbacks. In Canada, approximately 20, parts workers are union members while about 40, to 45, are not. Lewenza urged government to introduce fairer unionization legislation, which would see card check certification reinstated in the province. He also lambasted the government for allowing employers to use replacement workers during labour disputes and touched on the need to introduce fair severance and bankruptcy legislation. This large-scale effort organized under the campaign Auto Parts Workers United, also included a massive outreach effort to non-unionized parts workers, including those employed by Magna.
Donovan Sharpe Donovan is a sexist son of a bitch who objectifies women by keeping them on their toes, their backs, and their knees where they belong. Primetime with Donovan Sharpe. Add him on Facebook and follow him on Instagram. As a military kid, I was fortunate to live a lot of different places at a young age. After college I continued my nomad-like existence before finally settling down on the west coast. An obvious benefit of having lived in all four corners of the U. Location and upbringing creates a few differences between them, but by and large, chicks that are born and raised in the states are clones as far as sexual interaction goes.
First Nations by linguistic-cultural area: Hundreds of tribes had developed, each with its own culture, customs, legends, and character. In the northern woodlands were the Cree and Chipewyan. They had dyed or painted the bottoms of their moccasins black, but one story claimed that the Blackfoot Indians walked through the ashes of prairie fires, which in turn coloured the bottoms of their moccasins black. The Blackfoot started as woodland Indians but as they made their way over to the Plains, they adapted to new ways of life and became accustomed to the land. Prior to colonization, they recorded their history through oral tradition as a way to transmit stories, law, and knowledge across generations.

If you’re not getting the results you want from online dating in terms of sex, it’s not about you — it’s about the sites you’re using. It’s perfectly acceptable to use online dating sites strictly for hooking up, but most mainstream sites have relationship-building undertones that set the course for your in-person encounters. Considering many singles are seeking a sexual attraction that possibly has the legs to grow into more, many digital matchmaking companies now ensure you are compatible not only physically, but emotionally and mentally, too. After all, even if you list your relationship preference as “casual dating” on a trendy mainstream dating site, you’re still using a service designed to initiate and create serious, long-lasting relationships. This, and this alone, makes your chances of finding stimulating and satisfying sex-only relationships slim. Being matched by factors like the number of kids you dream of having isn’t exactly sexually stimulating, but searching by breast size or being matched based on sexual interests certainly is. Luckily for you, there are plenty of unique, tailored sites that take the love factor out of your matches and focus on the nitty, gritty and ahem, dirty. To get the sexual satisfaction you crave from online dating — and more accurately, to use hookup sites without misconceptions and extra baggage — it’s essential to start your search on a site as focused on sex as you are. Much like how in-person sexual encounters are all about being at the right place at the right time, your online sexual encounters rely heavily on similar factors.
Reader comment on item: Years later I realized that these men get more religious as they get older. It was a horrible never-ending devolution into some crazy kind of backward time in history. I vow today that I will never date or marry outside of my religion. I embrace my Catholicism more than I ever did after being exposed to the religion of my ex which I found to be degrading to women, family and the children but women in particular. In the last months of our marriage, he continued bringing up his fantasy of having two wives. It was sickening knowing that millions of women who are practicing Muslims would lovingly accept this idea of not having an “ego” and sexually submitting themselves to the sexual desire of an already married man, it being OK in Islam. This was the last straw for me. Knowing that there is encouragement for women to acquiesce to the status of a sex object for a man and that whether United States law recognizes it or not, these women will go to the mosque and marry your Muslim husband and happily live “in the dark” knowing that their Holy Book blesses these illicit unions. They rationalize it by saying that through transcending their “ego” they embrace their sexualization and the man doing anything he wants with any woman he wants, they say that they transcend the opinions of others, especially the man’s wife when she finds out that his Islamic counterpart is working in collusion to create and maintain a deceitful “second marriage” Suffice it to say that this was a learning experience not soon to be forgotten and I wanted to share it with my friends on Keen.
Price WW11 Air Ministry Issue Fitters Callipers – We have had numerous examples of these over the years but this set is larger than the norm measuring 6. They are in really good issued condition and carry a Kings Crown and below A. The same embossing is repeated on the reverse side not shown in our picture. Another modestly priced genuine wartime period item that would make an idea stocking filler for the aviation collector in you life. The porcelain mount carries various stampings to the reverse including ‘BCM Registered Ektrik’ who we assume to be the maker and registered name. Condition is excellent and the switch spring remains firm but this item is for sale purely as a collectable as we doubt it complies with UK let alone EU current legislation! Minimal wear to chrome and overall nice original condition and good working order! We have found it very effective here in the office in terminating the nuisance phone calls we are all sadly inundated with these days!
Dear Captain Awkward, I am a 34 year old straight woman in an open marriage with a 39 year straight man. I have taken far more advantage of the openness of our marriage than my husband, at least until recently. I have had a string of long-term affairs and short-term flings. During the past 8 months I have basically been living with another man in a neighbouring town to the one I live in. I am drawn to men who are starkly different than my husband, who is an intellectual, moderate in terms of his vices and has a disdain for the type of men who spend every evening in a pub. I have a drinking problem but it is not a problem I feel any need to resolve and I am drawn to men who are also drinkers like me.
Do you prefer coffee or tea? What would you do if I were suddenly unable to speak your language? What’s one household chore you don’t know how to do? What’s one type of household chore you’re unwilling, or at least very resistant, to do? If we were in a group at a party and told a horrible joke that no one else laughed at, what would you do? What’s your favorite magazine? How much time do you spend on social networking in a week? Will you tell me if I have lipstick on my teeth or if my hair is standing straight up? If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?
