Lungi: Not just for airports anymore, by Ryann Manning

Пятница, 06 Августа 2010 г. 12:23 + в цитатник
Оригинал сообщения

In three years, I’ve probably passed through Lungi 18 times. On 17 occasions, I ventured no further than the airport, helipad, hovercraft launch, or ferry terminal. Once, I spent six hours in the Lungi Airport Hotel before my 5 a.m. Royal Air Maroc flight. Never did I consider exploring beyond that. But now I know: Lungi has treasures of its own. Just 45 minutes from the airport, and a lifetime

BREAKING: PROP 8 TRIAL DECISION TO BE ANNOUNCED WEDNESDAY BETWEEN 1 PM – 3 PM PST

Пятница, 06 Августа 2010 г. 12:22 + в цитатник
Оригинал сообщения

By Eden James, Courage Campaign Institute


Exciting news! Judge Vaughn Walker has come to a decision in the Perry v. Schwarzenegger case.


This just in from the American Foundation for Equal Rights:


The federal court announced today that it will release its decision in the American Foundation for Equal Right’s landmark case, Perry v. Schwarzenegger, on Wednesday. Text “EQUAL” to 69866 to get a text message with the official decision on your mobile phone the moment the court releases its decision, or sign-up for an email alert at equalrightsfoundation.org. Join AFER on its Web site to watch a live press conference with our plaintiffs and co-counsels Ted Olson and David Boies following the release of the decision. As we receive news about the details of the release, AFER will update our Facebook and Twitter profiles, along with our Web site.



More from the court:



On August 4, 2010, the court will issue its written order containing findings of fact and conclusions of law following the court trial held in January and June of this year. The order will be e-filed in the court’s Electronic Case Filing system, and will be immediately available thereafter through ECF and PACER. Visit www.cand.uscourts.gov for details on registering for PACER. There will be no court proceeding associated with the publication of the order.


A small number of hard copies will also be made available for public review shortly after the order is e-filed in the following locations:


San Francisco Courthouse: Clerk’s Office (16th Floor) & Press Room (18th Floor)


Oakland Courthouse: Clerk’s Office


San Jose Courthouse: Clerk’s Office



More news to come as it develops. If you have news to share, please post it in the comments!


UPDATE BY BRIAN LEUBITZ (CROSS-POSTED AT CALITICS):


Well, it looks like tomorrow is the big day. Judge Walker will finally issue a ruling in the federal Prop 8 litigation:


District Court Judge Vaughn Walker will issue a decision Wednesday on the constitutional challenge to Californias Proposition 8, the ban on same-sex marriage, according to a court announcement today.


Walkers written order will be released electronically Wednesday  no hour was given  and will later be available for public review in federal courthouses in San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose.(SacBee)



I am actually fairly optimistic here that Judge Walker will strike down Prop 8, at least as far as the inequity between married same-sex couples and those who missed the cut-off. That much, at the very least, seems to be something of a narrow decision that many judges like to make.


However, Judge Walker seemed to be hinting at wanting to take a bigger stand during the closing arguments. Now, hints are essentially meaningless. I might as well try reading my cranium for clues, but that optimism in me keeps rearing its head.


In legal terms, it all comes down to two questions:


1. What standard should the court review Prop 8 under?


2. How does the court complete the analysis based on that standard


Now, as Ive mentioned in the past, there are basically three choices for the standard: rational basis, intermediate, and strict scrutiny. Under strict scrutiny, getting a law that discriminates to pass constitutional muster is extremely difficult. It would have to be narrowly tailored to an important state interest. On the flip side, under rational basis review, the court need only find a rational basis for the discrimination for any state interest whatsoever.


Now, that last one sounds pretty broad. However, the Defense of Marriage Act (Section 3) was recently struck down under this standard. In that case, the Court said that the federal government simply had no interest whatsoever in regulating marriage. Now, this is slightly different, as we are talking about a traditional basis of state power and a state regulation. But all that is to say that even if Judge Walker uses the rational basis test, all is not lost.


The decision will appear on the Northern Districts website some time tomorrow.

UPDATE BY EDEN: For those in the L.A. area, AFERs Adam Umhoefer sent out the following prior to the decision date being announced:


Regardless of the outcome, this event will mark a significant moment for our community. The eyes and ears of the nation will be focused on us immediately following the court’s decision. We have a tremendous opportunity to showcase our families and dispel the discriminatory myths about gays and lesbians and their children propagated by our opponents. By attending and speaking honestly about your lives and what marriage means to your family, we can change hearts and minds across the nation.


Also critically important is a strong showing from the LGBT community and our allies. We want everyone to know the breadth and depth of our commitment to bring about marriage equality as soon as possible. So we ask you to please join us, bring signs, and help make this Decision Day a memorable day in the struggle for equality.

Hello my brothers and sisters. I am so glad to be with you tonight. I have to tell you life is better that I have ever dreamed of. I should be done with Irenias painting tomorrow night, and it is a little different that what you are used to seeing, but I think it is exciting, and your mind will immediately try to figure out the story behind it. It will be a great cover for the talented young lady.
I want to thank all of you for the support you have given me this last 2 weeks. But it is all good. Its actually become hilarious and the people behind it have become the biggest joke on the net. That is why I said I will no longer go on public groups, or even read letters from people who are just Jealous of what we have accomplished together.
But I have had to make a few hard decisions because of such nonsense. Like I said before, stay off public groups, and 2 is not help people unless they pay for it. 70% of the people attacking me are people that I helped and asked for nothing but a thank you. That is what hurt me, but you know what, f*ck them, and may Karma give them a healthy dose of what they deserve, and by a couple of letters I got from some very powerful friends, Karma is coming to their front door. Oh man, I would love to see that.
But anyways, thats it. Where about art and fun things from now on. We (A large number of you) agree to just ignore them and let them do what they want to do. The true is there is not a darn thing they can do to hurt me. My career is already made and set. I have 20 covers to do between now and January, plus all the work I am doing for my company.
Hopefully tomorrow night I will post the new painting, and then I am taking a week off to redo my studio. I AM SO excited!!!!!! In the meantime, I love all of you.May the Darkness Comfort You

I am sorry to have to tell you this, but from here on out i will only talk about art on this blog. My personal life, thoughts and all else are to be kept private. If I have a personal opinion about something, I will have to keep it to myself. I will also be leaving any personal groups that I am involved with except for FaceBook.

This decision was made because I have reached the point where I have became a target of jealous and ignorant people. May the Darkness comfort You.

Zukos Firebending powers have weakened substantially: he, and most of the Fire Nation, practice a corrupted form that draws power from rage, which Zuko has attempted to abandon. He and Aang travel to the temples of the Sun Warriors to learn the original form of Firebending. After discovering that the Sun Warriors still exist, Zuko and Aang are confronted by the original Firebenders, two dragons to whom they must prove their worth.

-Lives of Jesus- speaker Robert Krajenke-March 31 Forum

Пятница, 06 Августа 2010 г. 12:22 + в цитатник
Оригинал сообщения

 


An encounter with Edgar Cayce’s clairvoyant discourses on the Bible and the lives of Jesus was a transformational experience in Robert’s life that brought to him the mystic flowering fountain of love and gratitude that has since guided his life in a search for service and an ever increasing connection and relationship with the Divine. While the Cayce Readings led him to the great and living truths of the soul and spirit, his greatest teacher was Edgar Cayce’s lifelong secretary, Gladys David Turner who taught little with words but demonstrated powerfully as a the living example of love and service, which lay at the heart of the Cayce Legacy.


Robert is an author, minister, lecturer, poet and a spiritual healer. He is also the author of the three volume study, Edgar Cayce’s Story of the Old Testament and Spiritual Power Points, based on the Cayce interpretations of life and Scripture. He also is co-author with renowned British spiritual healer, Malcolm Smith of Spiritual Power, Healing Hands, recounting Smith’s journey as a spiritual healer.


Robert is a minister in the Fellowship of the Inner Light in Virginia Beach, an interfaith metaphysical church, where he facilitates a weekly meditation, prayer and spiritual healing ministry. He serves also as a volunteer speaker for the Association for Research and Enlightenment’s Free Daily Lecture Series in Virginia Beach, and is currently in the process of preparing a book of his poetry for publication.
