African-Americans face uphill HIV fight
The Record [Hackensack, NJ], by Mary Jo Layton

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 2/26/2013 12:52:24 PM

A 20-year-old diagnosed with HIV or AIDS today can expect to live 50 years, due to groundbreaking advances in treatment since the discovery of the virus 30 years ago. Despite the progress, troubling trends remain: 47,500 new cases of HIV infection are diagnosed each year in the U.S. And in the African-American community, the statistics are even more grim: The virus continues to strike a disproportionate number of blacks, and their death rates are higher than other ethnic groups. In New Jersey, African-Americans make up 14 percent of the population but constitute 53 percent of the people

Comments:
New infections run about triple the annual "gun" deaths in the US, and thanks to the Down Low and prison cultures, black women are 20 times more likely than white women to be infected.

So, we conclude that AIDS is racist and Emperor Zero does not care about his own kind (closeted or black, take your pick).

The virus doesn´t "strike" a person, like a bolt of lightning might strike. A person CONTRACTS the virus, through an action. They make it sound like a person is unlucky rather than doing something that has a price.

Somehow I knew blacks would be hit the hardest.

I swear to God if there was a story about a shortage of blond hair for wigs, the media would report that blacks would be hit the hardest.

Do these dummies have any idea what this constant portrayal of blacks as victims has done to the black community? Do they care?

You´re right #2, the 4 large vectors in the world have been transfusions of infected blood, sharing needles, infected men having sex with young virgin girls, and infected men engaging in anal sex. So why is there a large disparity between black and white women? Are there any courageous black leaders out there who would like to take this on? I understand that by asking the question I will be defined as a racist and sexist.

That progress is partially responsible for the increase in new cases.

In those 50 remaining years, he/she can continue infecting others, thousands of others.

It´s OK to say African-Americans have a disproportionately high rate of HIV. Left alone this statement implies victimhood.
But start asking why the rates are so high, if irresponsible behavior is the root cause... Well, that must be racist...

Oklahoma City — A federal judge agreed late Wednesday to temporarily block an Oklahoma pharmacy from providing an execution drug to the Missouri Department of Corrections for use in an upcoming lethal injection. The temporary restraining order was issued in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Tulsa by Missouri death row inmate Michael Taylor. His attorneys allege that the department contracts with The Apothecary Shoppe in Tulsa to provide compounded pentobarbital, the drug set to be used in Taylor´s execution on Feb. 26. The lawsuit argued that several recent executions involving the drug indicate it will likely cause Taylor

Michael Behenna wins parole
Oklahoman [Oklahoma City], by Chris Casteel    Original Article

Former U.S. Army 1st Lt. Michael Behenna has won parole and will be released from Fort Leavenworth on March 14, his mother, Vicki Behenna, said Wednesday. Behenna, who was convicted of unpremeditated murder in a combat zone, learned early Wednesday morning and called his parents in Oklahoma City. “We go between tears and laughing,” Vicki Behenna, of Edmond, told The Oklahoman. “I’m just so thankful. I’m just so very very thankful. It’s wonderful.” Behenna, 30, has served five years of a 15-year sentence. He was convicted in 2009 of killing an Iraqi man connected to al-Qaida while questioning him.

White roofs could curb warming
from urban growth, study finds

In the debate over how to confront climate change, carbon dioxide gets most of the attention. But at the city level, new research suggests, we ought to be looking just as critically at how urban growth is raising temperatures. A group of researchers found that as urban areas in the United States expand, so too will the “heat island effect,” in which pavement, rooftops, parking lots and other hard surfaces absorb heat and slowly release it, boosting temperatures higher than rural surroundings. By century’s end, the built environment will contribute as much to rising temperatures in cities across the United States

Commuters getting on and off NJ Transit buses along highways in Bergen and Passaic counties have been climbing over boulders of ice and snow for the past week because no one seemed to know who was supposed to plow the bus stops. One woman hung onto an NJ Transit bus stop sign that poked out of a mound of packed snow on Route 3 east at Passaic Avenue in Clifton as she waited for a bus to New York City on Tuesday morning. Others, grumbling about conditions at the bus stop, walked around the ice and onto a shoulder of

Bowling Green, KY. — A sinkhole collapsed part of the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky on Wednesday, damaging eight cars there but not shutting down the facility. Bowling Green city spokeswoman Kim Lancaster said the hole opened up at about 5:40 a.m. CST Wednesday, setting off an alarm and a call to the fire department. Frassinelli said no one was in the museum at the time. Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli said six of the cars were owned by the museum and two — a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil — were on loan from General Motors.

The US economic recovery is “far from complete,” new Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen told lawmakers Tuesday. Testifying in her first congressional appearance since she became the central bank’s first chairwoman, Yellen said Fed policy was likely to closely follow the course set out by her predecessor, Ben Bernanke. “I served on the committee as we formulated our current policy strategy and I strongly support that strategy,” she said.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas told a group of college students on Tuesday that race and gender relations are worse now than when he was a kid. Speaking at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida, Thomas, the second black justice to serve on the court, lamented what he considers a society that is more ´conscious´ of racial differences than it was when he grew up in segregated Georgia in the days before — and during — the civil rights era. The conservative justice who, among other things, has written opinions supporting limits on Affirmative Action, added that

Bay Bridge´s new problem: leaks

The just-opened eastern span of the Bay Bridge, already beset by questions about flawed welds and cracked steel rods, has a new problem: It leaks. Rainwater is dripping into the steel structure beneath the road deck on the suspension stretch of the span, which is supposed to be watertight, Caltrans said. Outside experts say that could pose a risk of corrosion on a bridge that cost $6.4 billion and is supposed to last well into the 22nd century. "That´s a problem, a big problem," said Lisa Thomas, a metallurgical engineer who studies material failure at a laboratory in Berkeley

Plainfield — Plainfield’s new mayor has shut down a program that aimed to distribute photo ID cards to the city’s immigrant community and had been supported by the previous administration. On the morning of Jan. 31, as dozens of people lined up to get cards at Angels for Action, a Latino social services agency on West Second Street, newly appointed Police Director Carl Riley showed up with a letter from Mayor Adrian Mapp effectively shuttering the program, according to the agency’s president Carmen Salavarrieta.

A fired executive from one of New Jersey’s red-light camera vendors contends in a lawsuit filed in Arizona that the company provided lavish gifts and bribes to government officials in 13 states — including New Jersey — to secure new contracts. The brief but bombshell reference to New Jersey and other states in a 13-page counterclaim was made by Aaron Rosenberg, former nationwide lead salesman for Redflex Traffic Systems of Phoenix. He did not mention specific municipalities from any of the states. Rosenberg noted in the suit that Redflex “bestowed gifts and bribes on ... officials in dozens of municipalities within, but

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

Michelle Obama chose Venezuelan-American designer Carolina Herrera for the gown she wore Tuesday to the state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande. The formal, ornate style of the sumptuous gown by Ms Herrera reflected French aesthetics, from the intricate beaded black bodice, to the train and full skirt in a color called liberty blue. ´From the White House to Versailles it´s not that far,´ said Susan Swimmer, author of Michelle Obama: First Lady of Fashion and Style. ´It´s much more keeping in a French aesthetic than I´ve seen her wear before.

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015. Republicans have denounced such actions as "lawless." But if what the president has

Michelle Obama´s lust for luxury has always been a bit of a problem for her husband and Democrats in general. Jetting off to five star resorts with a large entourage has too much dissonance with the rhetoric denouncing inequality currently in favor with the left. But the First Lady has now outdone herself, and because a picture is worth a thousand words, the damage may be a bit more serious than the occasional grumble over designer shoes and livin´ large.

Washington – Continuing his push to use executive powers as a way of advancing his agenda, President Barack Obama will announce Thursday a new effort to help improve the lives of young African-American males. A White House official said the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative would partner government with businesses to “make sure that every young man of color who is willing to work hard and lift himself up has an opportunity to get ahead and reach his full potential.” Young African-American men are unemployed at a higher rate than the population at large, and are more likely than peers of other races
