A New York City Council candidate who lives in lower income housing has been elected as the Democratic nominee for her district after controversy surrounded now-deleted online photos showing her husband sailing on his wealthy father´s yacht. Carlina Rivera will now be the nominee for the District 2 City Council seat to represent neighborhoods including parts of the East Village, Gramercy and the Lower East Side. (Snip) During her election, Rivera, who is a New York native, faced questions about her eligibility to live in Section 8 housing due to her salary as a council staffer and her husband´s numerous

Not only is she getting away with something, but she is depriving a genuinely in-need person or family of that low-income apartment.

Throw her out.

I am convinced voters like being lied to by Democrats, even to their detriment. After all, NYC elected the commie mayor.

Antarctica is being rapidly
melted from below says Nasa,

Independent [UK], by Andrew Griffin    Original Article

There is something mysterious and hot lurking beneath the surface of the Antarctic ice. Now Nasa says that it might have found the source of that strange heating – a “mantle plume” – or upwelling of abnormally hot rock, that lies deep beneath the surface. The heat is causing the surface of the ice to melt and crack, resulting in rivers and other disruption to Antarctica. Around 30 years ago, a scientist at the University of Colorado Denver said that there might be a mantle plume under a region of the continent known as Marie Byrd Land. That hypothesis helped explain some strange

An illegal immigrant “Dreamer” who became the face of the pro-DACA movement earlier this year after getting deported was arrested this week for trying to sneak back into the U.S. without permission, the Border Patrol said Wednesday. Juan Manuel Montes-Bojorquez had claimed to be the first person protected by DACA to have been deported by the Trump administration, and was suing to regain entry to the U.S. A judge had seemed sympathetic to his case. (Snip) Mr. Montes had tried to sneak back into the U.S. in February after his initial deportation and was caught. The government said that

The Palm Springs, Calif., City Council is entirely LGBT or queer after two new members were elected to the council Tuesday. Lisa Middleton made history Tuesday as the first openly transgender candidate elected to a nonjudicial office in California. Christy Holstege, who identifies as bisexual, won the second open seat on the city council. (Snip) Middleton and Holstege join gay councilmembers Geoff Kors and J.R. Roberts. Other transgender candidates were elected to office Tuesday — significant victories for an oft marginalized community. Transgender woman Andrea Jenkins was elected to the Minneapolis City Council while Danica Roem of Virginia beat 13-term Republican

One of the black Air Force Academy cadets who claimed he was targeted by racial slurs scrawled outside his dorm room actually wrote the hateful messages himself, school officials said this week. Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria — whose passionate message to cadets at the Air Force Academy’s Preparatory School in Colorado went viral after five black cadets found the words “go home” and an accompanying racial slur outside their dorm in September — confirmed the finding and reiterated the need for inclusiveness at the academy outside Colorado Springs. “Regardless of the circumstances under which those words were written, they were

Former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer admitted on Capitol Hill Wednesday that the Silicon Valley giant still doesn’t understand how hackers managed to compromise the information of billions of Yahoo users. In an opening statement to the Senate Commerce Committee, Mayer apologized to Yahoo’s users, blamed “Russian agents” for the breach and said that Yahoo quickly worked to protect user accounts and contact law enforcement. The digital diva — who left the helm of Yahoo earlier this year after it was acquired by Verizon — was forced to testify with a subpoena after she refused several requests to testify voluntarily, according

The Minneapolis City Council was poised for historic change Tuesday as voters elected the city’s first transgender council member, on a night that saw a handful of veteran council members from across the city struggling to hold on against strong challenges. “I’m feeling elated. Ecstatic. Extraordinarily happy right now,” Andrea Jenkins, who becomes the first transgender woman of color elected to public office in a major U.S. city, said from her election night party at Curran’s Restaurant. “I’m really, really deeply proud of my community.” At least one longtime council incumbent seen as vulnerable seized an early victory: Lisa Goodman,

A black Kansas man has admitted he put racist graffiti on his own car as a Halloween prank that got out of hand, police said Monday. Photographs posted on social media Wednesday showed the car covered with racial slurs against blacks and messages that included ´Go Home,´ ´Date your own kind,´ and ´Die.´ The vehicle, covered in graffiti scrawled with washable paint, was parked Wednesday at an apartment complex near Kansas State University and the incident fueled racial tensions at the university and in the community. An emergency meeting of the Black Student Union called that evening drew concerned administrators

Dozens of warships believed to contain the remains of thousands of British, American, Australian, Dutch and Japanese servicemen from the second world war have been illegally ripped apart by salvage divers, the Guardian can reveal. An analysis of ships discovered by wreck divers and naval historians has found that up to 40 second world war-era vessels have already been partially or completely destroyed. Their hulls might have contained the corpses of 4,500 crew. (Snip) These submerged ships are one of the last sources of “low background steel”, virtually radiation-free and vital for some scientific and medical equipment.

A newly declassified FBI dossier on the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. alleges the civil rights leader had a possible lovechild and once bedded folk singer Joan Baez. The scandalous 20-page report – included in the latest document dump of files related to the JFK assassination – says that “a responsible Los Angeles individual” informed an agent that King had an affair with the wife of a prominent black dentist and may have fathered a baby girl.

An extra $5 million (£3.8m) has been released to control the deadly plague outbreak in Madagascar which has now reached ´crisis´ point. The World Bank has answered desperate cries from aid workers for emergency funding to tackle the ´worst outbreak in 50 years´. Cases of the plague have spiraled by 37 per cent in less than a week, and the most recent statistics show at least 1,800 people are now infected and 127 deaths have been recorded. (Snip) The ´truly unprecedented´ outbreak has prompted warnings it will spread to nine nearby countries - South Africa, Seychelles, La Reunion, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Comoros

Kevin Spacey turned the set of “House of Cards” into a sick, sexual playground — which he used to harass and abuse young staffers, a report says. Eight people who currently work on the show or worked on it in the past have come forward and accused the Oscar winning actor of misconduct, with at least one person claiming he was sexually assaulted. (Snip) “It was a toxic environment for young men who had to interact with him at all in the crew, cast, background actors,” he said.

Accusations of inappropriate sexual behaviour against Kevin Spacey are mounting, with one actor claiming the Hollywood star routinely preyed on young men and sometimes invited them to the stage of the Old Vic for picnics. The Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos said there were many young men with a “Kevin Spacey story”. He added: “It seems that it only took a male under 30 to make Mr Spacey feel free to touch us.” (Snip) He recalled being told a similar story by many people of how Spacey invited young male actors to the Old Vic to “talk about their careers”. Cavazos continued:

A day before Donald Trump arrived in Beijing for crucial talks, China arrested 3 prominent African-American athletes. It would be awful if this became a racial issue today back home. A new element could be introduced into the deal-making at the heart of presidential mission to East Asia, and these youths have a following. They all have head shots from UCLA (snip) If the Chinese wish to use this incident for bargaining leverage (and why wouldn’t they?), they could exchange lenient treatment of the matter, as an “administration violation,” which sounds non-criminal.

If standard practices are applied, the three UCLA basketball players – including LiAngelo Ball – arrested Tuesday in mainland China under suspicion of shoplifting face between three and 10 years in prison if convicted, according to Chinese lawyers who briefed Yahoo Sports on the applicable laws. The sentencing guidelines could shift depending on the amount that the Chinese could prove was allegedly stolen. Authorities believe the players shoplifted from a Louis Vuitton store near the UCLA team hotel outside of Shanghai. The Bruins are in China to play Georgia Tech on Saturday in the season opener.

When California lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, the state chapter of the NAACP will be seeking their support for a campaign to remove “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem. The organization last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled

I argued that conservatives should disassociate themselves from Roy Moore and denounce him weeks before credible allegations surfaced today that he preyed on teenage girls, one only 14 years old. So I’m pretty locked-in. I suppose it’s good that some Republicans see this as a bridge too far. But it’s a little hard for me to focus on that upside when you think about what they considered to be acceptable until now. Still, it’s good to know where the line is. You can set up shady charities for profit. You can call for religious tests and champion theocracy. You can

Maybe it was that whole “low energy” thing. In surprisingly undiplomatic terms for elder statesmen, George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, bash President Trump in a soon-to-be released book.

Trump that they can’t stand. (Snip) “You can either exploit the anger, incite it, or you can come up with ideas to deal with it.” Jeb offered real solutions, “but it didn’t fit with

The results are in and New Jersey and Virginia have elected new Democratic governors. In New Jersey, former Goldman Sachs executive and Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy expectedly defeated Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno by an estimated margin of as many as 14 points, and in Virginia, Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam defeated former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie by an estimated 7-to-8-point margin. Surely, New Jersey’s swing to a Democratic governor is a product of an unpopular outgoing Republican governor, Chris Christie, and President Trump’s unpopularity in the state as well. Further, outgoing Republican Governor Christie has the dubious status as New Jersey’s
