Council calls for moratorium on the N-word

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Los Angeles city officials called Friday for a moratorium on the use of the “n-word” as a matter of both civility and respect for the African-American community. With personal testimony by officials of slurs and bigotry directed against them, Councilman Bernard Parks said he recognized the measure was limited in its scope. “I recognize this is not going to solve poverty or world hunger or all the other ills of the world,” Parks said. “But it brings attention to the idea that the use of this word – whether among friends, in music or before the City Council – it is a word that causes trauma and violence.” Parks said he was encouraged by community activists to call for the moratorium to bring attention to the one-year anniversary of the incident involving comedian Michael Richards, who used the word against members of his audience. “We should celebrate that as an opportunity to bring attention to it,” Parks said.last_img read more

No More Need for Embryonic Stem Cells?

first_imgHarvesting human eggs and creating embryos for embryonic stem cells may soon become a thing of the past.  Nature Science Update reported that four teams have verified that normal skin cells in mice can be reprogrammed to act identically to embryonic stem cells.    The technique, called “induced pluripotent stem cell” (iPS), holds promise to end the ethically-questionable practice of cloning human embryos then killing them for their stem cells.  “If researchers succeed, it will make it relatively easy to produce cells that seem indistinguishable from embryonic stem cells, and that are genetically matched to individual patients,” wrote David Cyranoski.    This new practice not only overcomes the ethical questions: it is easier to do, and matches the cells to the patient.  Neither eggs nor embryos are necessary.  “There’s no trick, no magic,” commented Shinya Yamanaka of Kyoto University, who pioneered the technique.  Another researcher was so impressed, he commented, “It’s unbelievable, just amazing.”  He compared the accomplishment to the cloning of Dolly the sheep: “It’s that type of accomplishment.”    What remains is to test the technique with human cells.  It also remains to be seen if the cells can be transplanted back into the patient for therapeutic purposes.  At least for now, biologists may have a safer and ethically favorable alternative for studying stem cells in the lab.  The Washington Post printed a follow-up story on June 7 with reaction from ethicists, religious leaders and pro-ES stem cell advocates.  The announcement coincided with Congress’s second vote to approve funding for embryonic stem cell research, reported Focus on the Family, expected to be vetoed again by the President.  The news line at Family Research Council reminded its readers that scientists had recently used adult stem cells to manufacture insulin – an important step in finding a cure for diabetes (see Bioresearch Online).    Already, it appears proponents of ES research are defending their turf.  In Science the same week, Constance Holden ended her report, “Hochedlinger and others hasten to point out that research needs to progress on all fronts because all systems ‘have their limitations.’”Keep an eye on this story and on the pro-ES advocates.  The article quoted one who said that research on embryonic stem cells remains “absolutely essential.”  Why?  It is still too early to tell, but if all barriers are removed for use of iPS instead of ES, the reaction of the embryonic stem cell advocates will be instructive.  Will the Hollywood celebrities still seek air time for tear-jerking commercials, when no law will be required to overcome ethical barriers that no longer exist?  Will the $3 billion California stem cell institute switch to the newer, safer, ethical iPS?  Will Big Science lobbyists cease their rhetoric about how ethical objections to ES will leave America scientifically behind the rest of the world?  Stay tuned.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Bafana, US for Mandela Challenge

first_imgIn 2009 Bafana Bafana faced Norway inthe annual Nelson Mandela Challenge. Thehome team won 2-1. Bafana Bafana face the highly ratedUS team in the 2010 edition.(Images: Formore free photos, visit the image library)MEDIA CONTACTS • Morio SanyaneSafa communications director+27 82 990 0835Ray MaotaCoach Pitso Mosimane of South Africa’s national football team Bafana Bafana has announced a 23-man squad that will meet the US in the annual friendly Nelson Mandela Challenge.Mosimane announced the squad on 10 November 2010 at the headquarters of the South African Football Association (Safa) in Nasrec, south of Johannesburg’s inner city.The briefing was attended by Mosimane; acting CEO and programmes director of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, Moipone Buda-Ramatlo; Safa communications director Morio Senyane; Bafana manager Barney Kujane; Bafana assistant coach Jairo Leal; and Oupa Ngwenya, head of strategic projects and corporate communications at the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund.Giving young players a chanceThe match will play out on 17 November at the Cape Town Stadium, built from the ground up for the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Because the match is broadcast not only at home but also in the US through ESPN, kickoff is later than usual, at 9:30pm. This year’s challenge is the 16th edition.Mosimane said: “This is a friendly match so I will be trying to have a look at other players and for that to happen I had to leave out some of the regulars in the team.”The absence of experienced campaigners like captain Aaron Mokoena, Katlego Mphela and Macbeth Sibaya attests to this. Defender Bongani Khumalo has been left out due to injury.“Friendly matches are a big challenge because as much as you try to make changes, it means you have to tamper with your winning combinations. But then again these are challenges that exist in this game, we have to strike a balance but also not lose sight of our vision of slowly bringing in young players,” said Mosimane.Defenders recalled to the squad include: Siyanda Xulu of Mamelodi Sundowns, Keegan Ritchie of Moroka Swallows and Bevan Fransman of Hapoel Tel Aviv in Israel. Midfielder Matthew Pattison, whose last Bafana outing was at the pre-World Cup training camp in Durban earlier this year, also returns to the national team.Davide Somma, the England-based Leeds United striker, is the only newcomer. He gets his call-up because of a prolific strike rate at his UK club, which brought in some rave reviews. Somma was born in 1985 in Johannesburg but moved to the US as a 12-year-old before finding his way to England.Mosimane said: “It’s important to give him a chance to see what he is made of, but at the same time I do not want to put him under pressure and give him the idea that he is the answer to our scoring problems.“I just want to give him a chance to play for South Africa and increase our pool of strikers. He has been scoring in almost every match so we have to bring him in and I hope it works out for him,” said Mosimane.The squad that will battle it out with US consists of: goalkeepers – Itumeleng Khune and Moeneeb Josephs; defenders – Siboniso Gaxa; Siyanda Xulu; Morgan Gould; Bevan Fransman; Siyabonga Sangweni; Tsepo Masilela; Keegan Ritchie and Anele Ngocongca; midfielders – Siphiwe Tshabalala; Steven Pienaar; Thanduyise Khuboni; Daylon Classen; Reneilwe Letsholonyane; Andile Jali; Teko Modise; Mathew Pattison and Kagisho Dikgacoi; strikers – Sthembiso Ngcobo; Kermit Erasmus; Davide Somma and Bernard Parker.Bringing the best to South AfricaIn a statement Safa CEO Lesley Sedibe, who wasn’t at the briefing, reiterated the association’s pledge to be a caring organisation.Sedibe said: “The Nelson Mandela Challenge is a prestigious occasion in the international football calendar and is Safa’s commitment to always invite countries of high stature in the international football family.“The highlight of the Challenge will be the presentation of a R1 000 000 (US$145 440) cheque by the two captains to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. It will be donated by Safa and it is in this spirit that we urge the people of Cape Town to fill the stadium to capacity,” said Sedibe.Continuing Mandela’s legacyThe fund expressed its gratitude to Safa for the donation, saying it will go a long way towards putting smiles on the faces of many disadvantaged children.The fund’s acting CEO Moipone Buda-Ramatlo said: “The Foundation is also happy to know that the beautiful game of soccer remains an active ally for the continued safety, protection and care of children.“The wellbeing of children is a cause most dear to our founder Nelson Mandela, as there can be no better future for any society than its children,” said Buda-Ramatlo.Oupa Ngwenya of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund said: “As a sports-based fundraising vehicle of the fund, the Nelson Mandela Challenge has been a combination of fun and a demonstration of concern for children’s wellbeing from the football community.”The fund was established by former president Nelson Mandela in 1995, driven by his love for children and his desire to end their suffering.last_img read more

Indian president visits South Africa

first_img2 May 2012 Indian President Pratibha Patil arrives in South Africa for a state visit on Wednesday, accompanied by a government minister, four parliamentarians, various officials and a business delegation. Patil’s visit follows an invitation by President Jacob Zuma, and will provide an opportunity to for further strengthening the relationship between the two countries. During her visit, Patil will discuss bilateral relations with Zuma. The two presidents will also address South African business people and their Indian counterparts at a business forum in Pretoria. Since the establishment of full diplomatic relations between South Africa and India in 1993, numerous high-level visits have taken place between the two countries, with cooperation agreements signed in trade, investment, education, defence, information and communication technology (ICT), health, agriculture, and science and technology. As strategic partners, South Africa and India have created a platform for cooperation in various forums, including the BRICS grouping of Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa; the IBSA (India, Brazil, South Africa) grouping; the BASIC (Brazil, South Africa, India, China) climate change-specific forum; and the India-Africa Forum. According to the Department of International Relations and Cooperation, trade between the two countries stood at R48.2-billion as of November 2011, with South African exports at R21.9-billion and imports from India at R26.3-billion. The two countries have set a bilateral trade target of R111-billion to be reached by 2014. “India and South Africa share a common vision on a range of global issues and domestic challenges,” the department said in a statement on Monday. “Many of the objectives are being pursued both bilaterally and multilaterally, and are also being given content through South-South initiatives.” Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Ex-CM Dhumal, State chief in BJP list of candidates

first_imgFormer Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal and Himachal Pradesh BJP chief Satpal Singh Satti are among the party candidates, a list for which was announced on October 18, for the State Assembly polls.The BJP has declared its nominees for all the 68 seats in the State’s Assembly and the names also include Anil Sharma, Congress veteran Sukhram’s son, who quit his party recently to join the BJP.Mr. Dhumal, a two-time Chief Minister, will contest from Sujanpur instead of Hamirpur, which he represents in the outgoing Assembly.Mr. Dhumal and Union Minister J.P. Nadda are seen as two most likely choices for the post of Chief Minister if the saffron party comes back to power in the Congress-ruled State. The BJP has not named its chief ministerial candidate.The BJP central election committee had met last week to finalise their candidates in the State. The single-phase election will be held on November 9.The party has dropped from the list four sitting MLAs — Gobind Ram Sharma from Arki, Rikhi Ram Kaundal from Jhandutta, B.K. Chauhan from Chamba and Anil Dhiman, who won the bypoll to the Bhoranj seat in April.Vijay Jyoti Sen, sister-in-law of Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh’s wife Pratibha, and former Congress leader Pawan Nayyar have been given tickets from Kusumpti and Chamba.Maheshwar Singh, who merged his Himachal Lokhit Party (HLP) with the BJP has been fielded from Chopal.As many as 12 new faces and an equal number of former MLAs and Ministers have got tickets.The party has fielded six women this time, one less than the 2012 polls. They are Sarveen Chowdhary (Shahpur), Rita Dhiman (Indora), Indu Gauswamy (Palampur), Kamlesh Kumari (Bhoranj), Vijay Jyoti Sen (Kusumpti) and Shashi Bala (Rohroo).The new faces included former IAS officer J.R.

Alliance talks with Congress a downer: BSP

first_imgBSP chief Mayawati said here on Thursday that her party would like to join hands with secular parties to defeat “communal parties” in the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections but only if it got a respectable number of seats to contest.She said even for the Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Assembly polls, BSP leader Satish Mishra held talks with Congress leader Ahmed Patel but the outcome was not encouraging.Mr. Mishra was dejected after the talks and had now stopped advocating contesting elections in an alliance, she said. “Mishra is also unhappy with the stance of the Samajwadi Party.” She said contesting in alliance had not benefited her party, therefore it was better that the BSP contest the polls alone.The BSP president who convened a meeting of senior party leaders to pass directions for the coming urban local bodies polls in Uttar Pradesh, which the party is contesting on its “elephant” symbol for the first time, said any party man entering the fray as Independent would be expelled.last_img read more

Doctrines of Jainism particularly relevant in today’s world: President

first_imgStating that the doctrines of Jainism always espoused a rich tradition of non-violence, President Ram Nath Kovind said on Monday that the teachings of the great Jain spiritual teachers were particularly relevant in today’s tumultuous world.Rishabhanatha, the first Jain Tirthankara (spiritual teacher), spoke of non-violence through peace and gaining peace through the path of non-violence, said Mr. Kovind at the inauguration of a three-day Vishwa Shanti Ahimsa Sammelan (peace conference) at Mangi Tungi in Nashik district in north Maharashtra.The event was organised by the Bhagwan Shri Rishabhdev 108-feet Vishalkai Digambar Jain Murti Nirman Committee.“The three jewels of gems of Jainism are Samyak Darshan (right perception), Samyak Jnana (right knowledge) and Samyak Acharan (right conduct). In today’s world, which is being torn apart by hatred and violence in the name of religion, Jainism’s emphasis on compassion for all creatures is particularly relevant,” Mr. Kovind said, adding that Jainsim teaches people to live and let live.He further said that the principle of ‘Ahimsa Paramodharma’ in the Jain tradition is distinguished for human welfare and compassion – and not just for the absence of physical violence.Bhagwan Mahavir gave special importance to ‘Apirigraha’ that is not taking what is more than essential to live, Mr. Kovind said.“Humankind is exploiting nature indiscriminately. Ruthless consumption and accumulation of resources is increasing. Due to this, phenomena like climate change are emerging as challenges. Following the Jain tradition shows us a way out,” he said.President Kovind presented the first international ‘Bhagwan Rishabhdev Award to Suresh Jain, the chancellor of the Tirthanker Mahaveer University in Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh. The award carries a cash prize of Rs. 11 lakh, a memento and a citation.The President is on a two-day tour of Maharashtra and will attend the convocation ceremony of Symbiosis International Institute in Pune.last_img read more
