A German presenter has apologised after being caught smearing mud on her clothes moments before appearing on television from a town ravaged by last week's historic floods.

Susanna Ohlen, 39, said she acted after feeling "ashamed" of reporting from the town in her clean clothes.

The broadcaster RTL said she had been suspended for breaching its standards after the video went viral.

In a statement, Ms Ohlen said she had made a "serious mistake".

She had been reporting from Bad Münstereifel in North Rhine-Westphalia, where record rainfall destroyed homes and left dozens dead last week.

Ms Ohlen said she had been helping aid efforts in the days before filming for RTL's Good Morning Germany programme on Monday.

But before going on air, she felt "ashamed to stand in front of the camera in clean clothes", she said.

Without thinking, she said, "I smeared mud on my clothes".

Speaking at a rally in Toronto on July 17, former parliamentarians and rights activists voiced support for Falun Gong adherents amid the ongoing persecution of the spiritual practice launched by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) 22 years ago.

Over 500 Falun Gong adherents participated in a parade through the city’s downtown to commemorate the victims of the largest human rights abuse in China. At least 500 people registered online for the parade, but roughly 700-800 people showed up, said Jeffery Jiang, one of the organizers.

At the rally in Queen’s Park, former Conservative MP Wladyslaw Lizon called on Canada, the United States, and Europe to help those who “demand rights and change in the communist system” as in the past they helped people living in the Soviet Union.

“This gives hope, and it should give hope to all of us and to those that are here today, persecuted by this terrible communist government in China,” Lizon said.

“We should remind not only the communist government of China of their crimes, [but] remind them that the times to answer for those crimes is coming.”

Falun Gong is a spiritual practice that includes meditation exercises and teachings based on the tenets of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance. Also called Falun Dafa, the practice was introduced in 1992 in China, where it gained widespread popularity due to its benefits to people’s mental and physical well-being. By 1999, it had attracted 70-100 million adherents, according to Chinese government estimates.

CCP leader Jiang Zemin perceived that popularity as a threat to the regime’s rule. On July 20, 1999, Jiang launched an unprecedented campaign and brutal oppression aimed at eradicating the practice.

A suspect, who allegedy boasted with pals about gang-raping a 13-year-old Austrian schoolgirl who died in the attack, has been arrested.

The teenager's lifeless body was dumped beside a road next to a tree after allegedly being raped by the four men.

Austrian police say all four were immigrants from Afghanistan and arrested three, with an international manhunt carried out searching for the fourth. The suspect has now been arrested in London.

Schoolgirl Leonie, 13, from the city of Wiener Neustadt near Austria's capital Vienna, was reported missing by her parents Melanie P, 40, and Hannes W, 39.

One can of Pepsi, just less than a pound. That’s how much baby Richard weighed when he was born.

His hand was the size of his mother’s fingertip. His eyes were fused shut, and his ribs and vessels shone through his almost translucent skin.

“He was just an itty-bitty little guy,” said his mother, Beth Hutchinson. “His lungs were just little air sacs.”

Richard Scott William Hutchinson was born four months premature on June 5, 2020. One week prior, his mother went to the doctor with what she thought was a urinary tract infection. That same day, just 21 weeks into her pregnancy, she learned she was going to have her son within days.

“She texts me: ‘Get a bag together. I’m going to the hospital,’ ” said Beth’s husband, Rick Hutchinson.

‘I DIDN’T WANT TO GIVE UP’
The day before Richard was born, doctors told the Somerset, Wis., couple that their son had a “zero percent” chance of surviving.

“I was devastated,” Beth said. “It was really hard to accept their answers.”

I wouldn't leave ethics as something to be judged by some faggot on 4chan who really wants to kill a kid because some other faggot on 4chan used it as a cheap argument against abortion. Nobody else, not the doctors, not the parents, has come along and said AND SEE, THAT'S WHY ABORTION IS BAD. Just some faggot on 4chan politicized it, some faggot who would politicize people's favourite cultivars of apples.

And because of that you're desperately trying to counter-politicize it by convincing everyone that this kid needs to be fucking euthanized. Fucking look at yourself. Take fucking stock in your words and your actions. You've been driven to moral infanticide because of some faggot on 4chan.

on his Chicago skyscraper’s 2011 tax bill.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the office of Cook County State Attorney Kimberly Foxx filed a lawsuit this month with the Illinois Appellate Court against the refund, stating that the former president's refund would take away taxpayer dollars from Chicago public schools and other agencies to pay for it.

Last month, the state property tax board voted 5-0 that the value of the Trump International Hotel & Tower had been overassessed, thus leaving Trump eligible for a refund totaling $1.03 million.

The tax breaks had been sought on behalf of Trump by the law firm Klafter & Burke, formerly run by Chicago city Alderman Edward M. Burke (D).

Burke has since pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial on federal charges that he blocked businesses from getting city permits until they hired his law group.

North Korean women have been ordered to refer to their lovers as “male comrades” in Kim Jong-un’s latest war on everything modern.

Officials in Pyongyang urged women to “mind their language” and avoid any slang terms from progressive-minded America or South Korea, The Express reported.

An editorial in government newspaper Rodong Sinmun attacked the “bourgeois” ruling class ideology which has freed women to be more open about sex across the world.

Kim Jong-un has fought against such changes in North Korea, fearing more than half his population could adopt the language of freed people.


Kim urged women to drop slang terms such as “oppa” and replace them with more formal addresses


A South Korean MP said he was told in a recent intelligence briefing North Korean women are banned from using popular slang term “oppa” to refer to their lovers.

The Rodong Sinmun article explained style, appearance and language are “a reflection of the state of thought and spirit”.

People who have had their shots and become infected with the delta variant of the coronavirus can harbor large amounts of virus just like unvaccinated people. That means they could become spreaders of the disease and should return to wearing masks indoors in certain situations, including when vulnerable people are present.

But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention did not publish the new research.

Some outside scientists have their own message: Show us the data.

"They're making a claim that people with delta who are vaccinated and unvaccinated have similar levels of viral load, but nobody knows what that means," said Gregg Gonsalves, an associate professor at the Yale School of Public Health. "It's meaningless unless we see the data."

DR. Fauci noted there is not yet clinical data on what the high viral loads mean in terms of disease transmission. "You can make a reasonable assumption that vaccinated people can transmit the virus just like unvaccinated people can," Fauci said.

If we're seeing more breakthroughs, is it just because the virus is better and the vaccines don't hold up quite as well, or is the efficacy of the vaccines beginning to wane, independent of the delta?" asked Robert Wachter, chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of California at San Francisco. "This is 3D chess, there's a hundred things going on at the same time."

About three-fourths of people infected in a Massachusetts Covid-19 outbreak were fully vaccinated against the coronavirus with four of them ending up in the hospital, according to new data published Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The new data, published in the U.S. agency’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, also found that fully vaccinated people who get infected carry as much of the virus in their nose as unvaccinated people, and could spread it to other individuals.

That's probably going to be because most of the people up there were vaccinated and because delta can still infect the vaccinated. How many of the unvaccinated people in that one had to go to the hospital and how many of them died?

The total number of breakthrough cases is likely higher than 125,683, since nine states, including Pennsylvania and Missouri, did not provide any information, while 11, like Covid hotspot Florida, did not provide death and hospitalization totals. Four states gave death and hospitalization numbers, but not the full tally of cases.

And vaccinated adults who have breakthrough cases but show no symptoms could be missing from the data altogether, say officials.

Breakthrough cases among the elderly were more likely to be serious, according to available data. In Washington state, 27 of the 52 people who died were known to be associated with long-term care facilities, according to state information. In Louisiana, the median age of those with severe outcomes was 73.

yeah, pretty bizarre, only makes sense if you understand that the GOP is actually a deathcult.

(CNN) -- An eviction moratorium for renters from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is on track to expire Saturday night, after the House of Representatives adjourned for August recess without passing an extension.

Democratic leaders scrambled throughout the day Friday to try and find enough votes to extend the moratorium beyond the July 31 deadline to no avail. Just after 6 p.m. ET on Friday, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer attempted to pass a bill to extend the eviction moratorium by unanimous consent, but it was rejected by Republicans. The House adjourned shortly thereafter.

The Supreme Court last month allowed the CDC order to stay in place until July 31 but said congressional action would be needed to extend it past that date. President Joe Biden called on Congress on Thursday to extend the moratorium to December 31, but both chambers have yet to move through the legislative process to extend the directive and the moratorium appears on track to expire barring some sort of last-minute action.

On Friday evening, the US Departments of Agriculture, Housing and Urban Development, Veterans Affairs and Treasury and the Federal Housing Finance Agency announced that -- at Biden's request -- they are extending "their foreclosure-related eviction moratoria until September 30, 2021."

Biden had called on state and local governments earlier Friday evening to "immediately disburse" rental assistance funds from Covid relief laws ahead of the moratorium's expiration. "State and local governments should also be aware that there is no legal barrier to moratorium at the state and local level," he said in a statement.

https://www.politico.com/news/2021/07/30/cryptocurrency-fears-tax-hit-infrastructure-501885

Buried in the still-unreleased bipartisan infrastructure package is a sweeping crackdown on cryptocurrency transactions that could generate significant tax revenue for the government and major anxiety in a financial technology industry that thrived during the coronavirus pandemic.

Lawmakers want people facilitating trades in Bitcoin and other digital assets to be subject to reporting rules similar to those governing the sale of stocks and other securities: Brokers would be required to report things like how much people paid for cryptocurrencies.

The proposal is alarming many in the industry, who are expressing fear of being ambushed with a host of new rules they could be stuck with for years.

They see the new reporting requirements as potentially damaging the economic viability of cryptocurrency markets, which have seen a rapid expansion in new users during the pandemic.

Given how much new tax revenue could be at stake and the amount of progress that has been made on the bill, many doubt the language will be eliminated, so they are focused on efforts to make what they see as improvements.
>>
Industry groups including the Blockchain Association, Coin Center and the Association for Digital Asset Markets outlined their opposition to the requirements in statements on Thursday, taking particular note of provisions in the draft version that could lead to targeting of individual users.

Perianne Boring, founder and president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce, said in an interview on Friday that her group proposed amending the bill language to “tighten the definition” of what constitutes brokering activity to exclude cryptocurrency miners and the operators of decentralized finance platforms.

“The idea of shoving this into a congressional mandate or as a as a revenue-generator for something completely unrelated, is not the preferred way or the right way to get the best policy,” Boring said, noting that ADAM and others have repeatedly asked for more guidance from the IRS on how to enforce existing laws.

ADAM's CEO, Michelle Bond, said “it is critically important for the industry to be at the table to provide technical assistance for proposals of this magnitude."

Tax compliance is considered a major problem with cryptocurrencies, and lawmakers are hungry for the $28 billion their proposals are said to raise to help finance their big-ticket spending plans.

The issue is complicated, potentially affecting banking and securities law. It also crosses jurisdictions in Congress, from the tax committees to banking panels.

The move to boost cryptocurrency reporting requirements comes after Republicans killed a plan to boost IRS enforcement by greatly expanding the agency’s budget — something Democrats are expected to tackle in a separate tax-reconciliation package.
>>
IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig has repeatedly asked lawmakers for more power to improve tax compliance in the cryptocurrency industry, where many market participants are unaware of their obligations or are outright cheating.

Though industry officials vow to fight the proposals, they’ll likely face an uphill battle.

The plan is headed for a quick vote in the Senate, and lawmakers will be loath to blow a hole in the infrastructure proposal after struggling for weeks over how to defray its cost of the plan.

The fact that few lawmakers understand cryptocurrencies and their relationship to taxes means that any lobbying effort will require a major educational campaign. Congress’s most expert member on the issue, Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), happens to be one of the main authors of the broader infrastructure package.

Portman spokesperson Drew Nirenberg said in a statement: "This legislative language does not redefine digital assets or cryptocurrency as a ‘security’ for tax purposes, impugn on the privacy of individual crypto holders or force non-brokers, such as software developers and crypto miners, to comply with IRS reporting obligations. It simply clarifies that any person or entity acting as a broker by facilitating trades for clients and receiving cash must comply with a standard information reporting obligation."

Much of the proposal is designed to replicate the reporting regime imposed when people sell stocks in companies like Apple or Ford.

Brokers would be required to report people’s so-called basis, or the price at which they bought cryptocurrencies, as well as their gross proceeds — which would make calculating their tax bills much easier. Studies have long shown that when people know someone else is independently reporting their income to the IRS, they are far less likely to skirt tax obligations.
>>
Lawmakers also want to include anti-money laundering provisions sought by the Treasury Department that would require transactions worth more than $10,000 to be reported to the government.

Behind the scenes, lawmakers have debated language that would expand the definition of broker to include decentralized exchanges, without traditional middle men, and peer-to-peer transactions, though some say the language of the proposal is broad enough to sweep in others like cryptocurrency miners.

“The extension of the definition of ‘broker’ is a surprise,” said Lisa Zarlenga, a partner at the firm Steptoe & Johnson LLP who works on cryptocurrency tax issues.

Another source of contention: provisions that could potentially go beyond cryptocurrencies to other types of digital assets like non-fungible tokens.

The Treasury Department had already been working on rules to tighten reporting requirements on brokers like Coinbase, but having Congress’s imprimatur would help head off any potential legal challenges to the agency’s authority to issue new regulations.

Industry officials are vowing a fight.

Blockchain Association Executive Director Kristin Smith expressed frustration with the last-minute scramble to write the legislation, saying it could impose new requirements on “all sorts of different actors in the ecosystem.”

“We think it would have the effect of potentially driving a lot of these actors and businesses and individuals involved in crypto overseas and really stifling the innovation in this space here in the United States,” she said.

While Congress’s budget forecasters can predict with confidence the cost of tax changes that are similar to ones lawmakers have made before — such as expanding the child tax credit — they invariably have a harder time for more novel policy proposals.

Cryptocurrencies present a particularly difficult challenge because their valuations can fluctuate wildly, it’s hard to know how many people are buying and selling the assets, and forecasters have to make guesstimates about the tax rates they likely pay.

https://thehill.com/regulation/court-battles/565446-228-republican-lawmakers-urge-supreme-court-to-overrule-roe-v-wade

Scores of congressional Republicans on Thursday urged the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade next term when the justices review a restrictive Mississippi abortion law.

The GOP lawmakers, 44 senators and 184 House members, argued in an amicus brief that the landmark 1973 decision in Roe and related rulings represent “a vise grip on abortion politics.”

“Congress and the States have shown that they are ready and able to address the issue in ways that reflect Americans’ varying viewpoints and are grounded in the science of fetal development and maternal health,” wrote the lawmakers, who represent 40 states.

Among the signatories were Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and other Republican leadership members. Earlier this week, a trio of conservative Senate Republicans — Josh Hawley (Mo.), Mike Lee (Utah) and Ted Cruz (Texas) — filed a separate amicus brief in the case.

The Thursday filing comes after Mississippi’s attorney general urged the justices last week in a brief to overrule Roe when the justices review Mississippi’s ban on virtually all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

On Thursday, Mississippi also received backing from a dozen Republican governors who asked the Supreme Court to eliminate federal abortion protections and instead allow states to regulate the procedure.

When you have sex, the only thing you're consenting to is sex and nothing more than sex. However, what you initially consent to isn't even an important factor in the ethicality of abortion. If you let someone stay at a property that you own, you are still within your rights to kick that person out later if you decide you don't want them there. Likewise, even if a woman had sex with the intention of getting pregnant, it would still be her right to terminate the pregnancy if she changed her mind. Unless you've signed some legal contract, you're not obliged to let anyone use your property for any longer than you want.

Details of the mishandled remains emerged Thursday morning, nearly a week after the events took place, prompting the first responder services to address reporters Thursday afternoonin the Eastern Townships city about 150 km southeast of Montreal.

Danny McConnell, the Sherbrooke police chief, said on July 23at around 10 a.m. firefighters received a call about a small brush fire near a factory on Cabana Street.

"When they arrived, witnesses declared that someone had lit a silicone mannequin on fire," McConnell said, adding that, at that point, firefighters requested assistance from police.

"After discussions between the two departments, it was agreed thatthe mannequin would be disposed of in the container at the Sherbrooke police service, which cannot be accessed by members of the public."

Four hours after firefighters did so, at 2:15 p.m., a man filed a missing person report for his partner. Police then tracked the woman's cellphone signal to her car, which was parked on Cabana Street, near the siteof the fire.

"A police officer who intervened earlier raised the coincidence insightfully," McConnell said. Police retrieved the so-called mannequin from the container and were able to identify it as the body of the missing woman.

There is far too much information missing from this story. How the body could not be recognized as a real human is beyond belief. If it was on fire enough to disguise the fact that it was human, it's impossible to believe nobody noticed the stench of burned flesh. You smell that even once and you can't ever mistake it for anything else, and the stench of burnt human flash is so different from anything else imaginable that there is no way to ignore it and think it's something else.

Something far more fucked up than a "simple mistake" (involving several firefighters & police) happened here. At the least, several major training issues are raised in both the police and fire departments.

I don't why witnesses would jump to mannequin upon seeing someone dump a corpse and burn it. Maybe Canadians are too trusting, I wonder how many times someone saw something and brushed it off, "oh Jim was just dumping his persian rug off at the construction site, shame his wife wasn't there to help him".
Four hours after the fire to file a missing person is pretty soon, and while there's no mention of how long she was missing before then, I'm still fingering the boyfriend on this one.
