U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry broke his leg in a bicycle crash Sunday after striking a curb and scrapped the rest of a four-nation trip that included an international conference on combating the Islamic State group. He planned to return to the United States on Monday.
Kerry was staying overnight in a Swiss hospital overnight as a precaution, State Department spokesman John Kirby said, before flying to Boston for further treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital.
“The secretary continues to be in great spirits and active,” Kirby said. “He has done a range of phone calls including with the president.”
United Airlines has come under fire after a Muslim passenger was allegedly refused an unopened can of soda because she might “use it as a weapon.”
Tahera Ahmad, director of Interfaith Engagement and associate chaplain at Northwestern University, has accused United of “Islamophobia” after an encounter with a flight attendant Friday that left her in tears.
Ahmad wrote in a Facebook post that she asked for an unopened can of Diet Coke during beverage service on her flight. When she was brought an open can, she requested a new beverage for sanitary reasons but was told, “I’m sorry I just can’t give you an unopened can so no diet coke for you.”
A man sitting near her was later brought an unopened beer, and Ahmad, who wears a hijab in her Facebook profile photo, asked the flight attendant again why she wasn’t able to have a similar can.
Ahmed also wrote that after the encounter, she asked her fellow passengers if the experience was discriminatory, but no one responded aside from one man who said, “You Moslem, you need to shut the f** up … yes you know you would use it as a WEAPON so shut the f**k up.”
When asked about the incident, a representative for United emailed The Huffington Post this statement:
The flight attendant onboard Shuttle America flight 3504 attempted several times to accommodate Ms. Ahmad’s beverage request after a misunderstanding regarding a can of diet soda. The inflight crew met with Ms. Ahmad after the flight arrived in Washington to provide assistance and further discuss the matter. Additionally, we spoke with Ms. Ahmad yesterday to get a better understanding of what occurred and to apologize for not delivering the service our customers expect when traveling with us.
We look forward to having the opportunity to welcome Ms. Ahmad back.
Ahmad’s story has quickly spread on social media, with some people adopting the hashtag #UnitedForTahera, calling for a boycott of the airline. Despite the statement from the airline, Ahmed wrote on Twitter that she has yet to receive a “sincere apology” from United and is “disappointed at [the] dismissal.”
While some countries are having trouble spying on suspects than because of communication encryption, India has other worries. Police in the country have arrested a pigeon (not the one in the picture), on charges that it may be a spy from Pakistan.
Yes, this is real news reported by the BBC. Apparently spy pigeons are a real thing over there, or at least police believe that to be the case.
The bird in question was taken into custody on Thursday after being discovered by a 14-year old boy in a village around 4km from the Pakistani border. The bird had a “stamped message” on its body written partly in Urdu, which is the official language of Pakistan.
The bird was X-rayed at police headquarters, but nothing suspicious was found. Even so, the pigeon remains in police custody, and it has been logged in as a “suspected spy” in the official police diary.
“This is a rare instance of a bird from Pakistan being spotted here. We have caught a few spies here. The area is sensitive, given its proximity to Jammu, where infiltration is quite common,” local police superintendent Rakesh Kaushal told the Times of India.
I couldn’t help but be taken aback by the title. Were my eyes deceiving me? Was I really reading someone blatantly argue for segregation by race?
The author, Aeman Ansari, argues that ethnic minorities have a right to claim public spaces to “share stories about discrimination without judgement and intrusion,” that is, judgement and intrusion by white people. She goes on that many students at Ryerson have experienced racism and that these spaces act as a forum where the ethnic students are protected from stereotypes and marginalization. Furthermore, she states that this is crucial in order to resist oppression.
What oppression might that be? Do you mean like being prevented from attending public spaces due to your race?
The two white journalism students that were asked to leave said they felt embarrassed by the situation, calling it, counterproductive. Ansari then blames individuals upset with this policy as “proof that they were right to exclude those students.” The piece also says that the organizers and attendees were there to “help each other get through social barriers and injustices.” However, I’m at a loss to pinpoint what those barriers might be. It appears they were able to put on their event and even discriminate against an entire race of people without too much fanfare.
The article goes on to implore that instead of focusing on the students that got kicked out we take a deep hard look at the “history of oppression” that white people have inflicted on ethnic minorities. We’re asked to examine the racist history of the West and the enslavement of Africans. According to Ansari, “This kind of oppression is still witnessed today.”
Didn’t we HAVE segregation, and they bitched and whined about it?
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries could flood the market with oil for years if it opts to do nothing to alter its output ceiling at a highly-anticipated meeting in June.
“If they don’t do something and find a way to get on the same page, we will all be floating on a glut of oil for a very long time,” warned Kevin Kerr, president of Kerr Trading International.
Questions about OPEC’s oil production are being raised as the oil cartel is set to call its first meeting since November 2014. Back then, OPEC’s vow not to cut output sent crude-oil prices plunging. Although prices have recovered somewhat in recent weeks, they are still sharply off their 2014 peak levels.
OPEC has maintained a collective production ceiling of 30 million barrels a day since it did away with individual country quotas about three years ago, and analysts expect the oil cartel to stand pat on that target when members meet on June 5 in Vienna.
But if OPEC decides not to change its target, it’ll be a “big signal that it is determined to continue with its policy to not give away market share,” even if prices fall as a result, Bhushan Bahree, senior director of OPEC and Middle East research at IHS told MarketWatch.
OPEC has already been pumping more than it said it would. The group produced 30.93 million barrels a day in April — the highest monthly total since November 2012, according to a Platts survey of OPEC and oil-industry officials and analysts released May 8. Output in Saudi Arabia, OPEC’s biggest producer and the country with the most spare output capacity, is on the rise, topping 10 million barrels a day in April.
