Justice for Breonna Taylor protest, Louisville, Ky., May 29.These slightly edited remarks were given by Monica Moorehead at a June 7 International Women’s Alliance webinar: “Building our militant global women’s movement to resist imperialism in the time of COVID-19.” This series of International Women’s Alliance webinars could not have come at a more opportune time. A wave of rebellion is sweeping the globe. Who would have thought six months ago that the epicenter of this rebellion would be the U.S. — the imperialist belly of the beast? It is both shocking and not surprising that this is happening. The billionaire ruling class, their Wall Street investors and the Trump government are having nightmares, fighting among themselves, knowing that their entire system is under attack — first for ignoring all the early signs of the COVID-19 pandemic, followed by the lack of testing and health care for everyone, including essential workers — and with the unemployment rate approaching Great Depression levels, not counting 2 million incarcerated workers in prisons and detention centers, undocumented migrant workers, working-class and oppressed youth. Workers are resisting with strikes, sit-ins, car caravans and even resisting armed neofascists who want to reopen businesses. The second pandemic is the rebellion ignited on May 25 by the horrific torture and police lynching of the 46-year-old Black man in Minneapolis, George Floyd. It took five days for the cop who asphyxiated Floyd to be charged and several days later for the three other cops to be arrested. That rebellion will reach two weeks tomorrow (June 8). This rebellion against police terror has brought together Black, Latinx, Indigenous and white people of all generations, genders and abilities with marches, rallies, shutting down bridges, interstates, carrying out civil disobedience and expropriation — all in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, with people risking their health to be in the streets in all 50 states, in large and small cities. This inspiring rebellion has spread around the world on almost every continent in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, which is an international struggle. Underneath these two unprecedented pandemics is a dying capitalist economic system based on making profits, not meeting human needs. Capitalism has been in a permanent economic crisis since the housing market crash in 2008. It never has and never will fully recover. This crisis is reflected in low-wage jobs, lack of housing, closings of hospitals and clinics, mass incarceration, a rise in domestic and sexual violence, attacks on reproductive justice, police brutality, environmental racism, lack of healthy foods, etc. For working-class people and people of color, there has always been a generational social crisis for years before 2008. But COVID-19 has made these issues more acute, especially with the genocidal numbers of people of color dying, at a rate 50 percent higher than whites due to institutionalized racism. Women are resisting on all frontsIn my organization, International Working Women’s Coalition, our main slogan is “Every issue is a woman’s issue.” We have a 10-point program that begs the question: Can we live without all the basic human needs like health care, jobs, housing, food and more? We say that in order to win these rights, you have to unite and fight capitalism and imperialism, which propagates white supremacy in all forms. And patriarchy and gender oppression are used to divide women and all sectors of our class.Who are on the front lines in the COVID-19 crisis? Mainly health care workers, the majority being women who put their lives on the line to save lives, but are dying because they don’t have personal protective necessities, access to ventilators and other lifesaving equipment. Women, especially women of color, have seen their numbers swell as incarcerated workers. Many are single mothers.Women have also been victims of police violence, like Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black EMT worker, shot eight times by Louisville, Ky., police while sleeping this past March. Her 27th birthday was on June 5. She is just the latest victim of police terror. There’s Sandra Bland in Texas, Rekia Boyd in Chicago, Shantel Davis and Kyam Livingston in New York, and countless other women of color whose lives have been tragically cut short. None of the police involved have been arrested or charged. But women are resisting on all fronts. Women of color, Black, Latinx and Indigenous, as well as anti-racist whites, a vast majority of them young, are on the front lines of this rebellion, not backing down from the police. Health care workers are rallying and marching against their terrible conditions, fighting both COVID and saying Black Lives Matter. Women are on the frontlines fighting these and other neoliberal policies emanating from the imperialist system both at home and abroad. The COVID-19 virus may be keeping a lot of us off the streets due to age and preexisting health conditions, but we can still show solidarity in other ways to fight any isolation, including women’s assemblies. We need to agree on some global united days of action on issues that most impact women, because despite where we live and struggle, we face the same struggles and the same fight against the same oppressive system. A good start is to defend this global rebellion against police and military terror, however long it lasts, because it is a woman’s issue. As the Assata Shakur chant says, as it applies to women and gender-oppressed people, “We have nothing to lose but our chains.” Monica Moorehead is an executive committee member of IWA. She is also a coordinator of the International Working Women’s Day Coalition in New York City.

Adam Schiff (D-CA), a senior member of the Intelligence Committee, issued the following statement in response to allegations that the IRS has engaged in the targeted scrutiny of certain tax-exempt 501(c)4 social welfare groups:The Internal Revenue Service must enforce the tax code in a neutral and nonpartisan way. Any politicization of tax enforcement is abhorrent and should be viewed as a grave offense. These allegations must be investigated to the fullest extent and dealt with appropriately.â€œI first raised the issue of selective enforcement by the IRS during the Bush Administration, when the agency audited All Saints Episcopal Church of Pasadena based on the content of a particular church service. After a former pastor gave an anti-Iraq War sermon, All Saints became the target of an aggressive IRS investigation in which the churchâ€™s tax-exempt status was threatened. At the time, I could find only one Republican colleague, Rep. Walter Jones, that would join me in calling for an investigation. The IRS targeting of certain organizations on the basis of their ideology is anathema, deeply chilling to free speech and cannot be tolerated.“The need to investigate these allegations thoroughly and to hold accountable those responsible, however, must not obscure the fact that many of the so-called “social welfare” organizations which have multiplied since Citizens United are a sham that should lose their tax exempt status. Some of these organizations are undeniably and overwhelmingly political, and merely seek to use the tax code to shelter their operations from scrutiny and to avoid disclosure of their donors. The IRS must enforce the law fairly and with no regard for ideology, but they must enforce the law.“Congress should do what I called for back in 2005 â€“ undertake a thorough review of how the IRS interprets and enforces the law when it comes to tax-exempt organizations, and examine whether existing laws and regulations need to be updated to draw a brighter line. Congress should also act to require disclosure of contributions to remove the incentive for partisan organizations to abuse the tax code for the sole purpose of avoiding transparency in the political process.â€ EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy 28 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it First Heatwave Expected Next Week More Cool Stuff Subscribe Community News

We have a progressive Finance Plan, which seeks to end the crisis in housing and the crisis in health.” Fianna Fáil will deliver for older people. A key priority for us in government will be to ensure that older people have the income and resources that they require to live full and independent lives.”“We will increase the State pension by €25 over the lifetime of the next government. We will protect the Free Travel Scheme; allocate an additional €20million to Housing Adaptation Grants and provide an additional €5million home care hours over the next five years.“Fianna Fáil will also ensure that those who are 65 but not yet entitled to a State pension will not have to sign on the dole. We will provide a transition payment, defer the increase in the State pension age and establish a Commission on Pensions to examine this issue.”Deputy O’Dea also dipped into his party’s shopping list to promise a change in direction on Housing with a return to days of home ownership.“We will return to building public housing. We will build 50,000 more affordable homes and 50,000 more social homes. We will increase the Help to Buy Scheme to help First Time Buyers. We will introduce a savers scheme that gives First Time Buyers a helping hand of €10,000 towards their deposit.”And he says that Fianna Fáil have big plans to tackle the Health Service.“A lack of resources in our Health Service is failing our most vulnerable particularly in the Mid-West with the A&E crisis at UHL. We in Fianna Fáil will add five million more Homecare Support hours, hire up to 1000 new consultants and hire 4000 new nurses and double the NTPF to €200m.”And that’s not all.In relation to childcare, Deputy O’Dea claims Fianna Fáil would increase State support to take some of the financial pressure off and ease the worries of mothers and fathers by quadrupling the weekly subsidy for every child under three in a crèche from €20 to €80.“Under Fianna Fáil, we will introduce a new €2000 per year tax credit for workers whose child is being minded by a registered child minder – equivalent to €166 per month and extend the successful ECCE scheme, introduced originally by Fianna Fáil for three to five-year-olds by two weeks per year to 40 weeks. We would also increase maternity and paternity leave to a total of 34 weeks – to be shared at the discretion of parents,” he concluded.

Almost one three Britons has taken their home off the market in the past five years, according to a new study.Reasons for taking down the For Sale sign included poor market conditions, lack of funds and deciding to renovate instead.For those that did sell, the average sale time on the market varied between six months and two weeks – while 16% are still going through the conveyancing process.The figures were revealed in a survey by window-furnishings company Thomas Sanderson, who polled more than 1,800 UK homeowners.All respondents revealed they had put their house up for sale in the past five years.Successful transactionsOf the Britons who had put their house up for sale, just over half (56%) had successfully gone through with the transaction,The remaining 28%, however, had taken their house off the market in the past five years.When asked why they had put their house up for sale, the most common answers were ‘To move to a different area’ (23%), ‘Because I could no longer afford the property’ (18%) and ‘To upsize’ (15%).Just over two-thirds of those who had removed their house from sale (68%) said they had done so in the past two years. When asked why, the most common reasons were:Could not/did not want to sell the house in the current market – 19%;Decided to renovate instead – 17%;Could no longer afford to upsize – 16%;They no longer wanted to move – 14%;Could not afford the fees – 12%.Plans to relistAsked if they thought they would put their house back on the market, just under a quarter (23%) said they thought they would do so in the next two years, with a further 26% saying they would in the next five years.Nearly a third (31%) said they didn’t think they would ever re-list their property.Just one in nine (11%) said they regretted the decision to take their house off the market, while 53% were certain they had made the right choice, while the remainder were unsure.The average amount spent putting their house up for sale before removing it from the market was roughly £1,200.Commenting on the findings of the study Richard Petrie, Marketing Director at www.thomas-sanderson.co.uk, said: “It has become increasingly popular to renovate your home rather than buy new in the current market, so it makes sense that people are choosing this option after initially deciding to sell.“It’s annoying that you still have to pay for various fees when putting your house on the market, but you may end up saving money in the long term if you are not in the right position to sell your home.” Stalling sales Unable to sell homes housing market house sales March 17, 2020Richard ReedOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 17th March 2020 at 3:11 pmPre-covid 19, which was the 2019 market, here are the scores on the doors regarding moving not moving exchange rates etc, taken on a national basis as a snapshot at the end of December 2019.

Organizations are trying to protect their devices against the backdrop of a changing cybersecurity landscape. At the same time, hackers are working just as hard – if not harder – to infiltrate security measures. As security tools get more advanced, attackers find new ways to bypass them. The latest tactic used by hackers is attacking IT systems below the operating system (OS) of a device. Attacks at the hardware-, firmware- or silicon-level can expose organizations to systemic damages.To study the effects of these types of intrusions, the Dell Technologies Hardware Security study conducted by Forrester Consulting surveyed IT, security, risk and compliance decision-makers at companies with more than 500 employees. Below is a topline summary of the commissioned study’s findings.Hardware-level Breaches are the Latest RealityThe majority (63%) of organizations surveyed experienced at least one data compromise or a breach in the last 12 months due to an exploited vulnerability in hardware security, while 47% experienced at least two hardware-level attacks.Hardware-level breaches can be carried out via targeting software vulnerabilities (43%), web applications attacks (40%) and strategic web compromises (30%).These threats put customers and employees at risk, cause brand damage and impact revenue performance.Current Strategies Don’t Prepare for Hardware-level AttacksNearly two-thirds (63%) of organizations recognize they have a moderate to extremely high level of exposure to threats to the hardware supply chain, yet only 59% have implemented a hardware supply chain security strategy.While three in five companies see BIOS and firmware exploits as very or extremely concerning, only half feel the same about silicon-level vulnerabilities.The lack of a consistent security approach to hardware-level security breaches leaves organizations open to the risk of damage, including loss of sensitive data, financial loss and diminished competitive advantage.Hardware Security Vendors are a First Line of Defense Chip manufacturer validation and supply chain validation are viewed as critical to addressing hardware-level threats. Forty-seven percent of surveyed companies reported adopting and investing in supply chain validation initiatives now and 30% plan to implement in the next 12 months. Thirty-eight percent plan to adopt chip manufacturer validation in the next year.Organizations that invest in stronger measures report growth in overall security (55%), reduced hardware expenses (39%), increased business continuity (44%), and expedited digital transformation (42%).Endpoint security and platform security are equally important features that are expected from hardware security vendors by 61% percent of organizations. Although organizations expect excellent security from their vendors, only 28% said they were satisfied with the device security practices their vendor-provided at the silicon level.Bottom line, hardware security is at the core of any computing system, and exploitation at this level is devastating. Once you are hacked, your endpoint, data and entire enterprise are at riskDell Technologies understands the importance of building security into the foundation of our devices. We are leading the way by fortifying our trusted devices both below and above the OS, while the rest of the PC industry prioritizes security apps and defenses that only sit above the OS. This difference in approach has led Dell Technologies to claim the industry’s most secure PCs – hands down. You can read more about how Dell architects a system of security measures, built from the inside out here.To read the full Dell Technologies Hardware Security study conducted by Forrester Consulting, “BIOS Security – The Next Frontier for Endpoint Protection,” please click here.
Hitchcock would be proud. The off-Broadway revival of 39 Steps will shutter on January 3, 2016 at the Union Square Theatre. At time of closing, this incarnation will have played 14 previews and 303 regular performances. Directed by Maria Aitken, the production is aiming to return to the Great White Way at some point in 2016.Adapted from the 1935 Hitchcock film thriller by Patrick Barlow, 39 Steps features a cast of four actors who reenact all of the characters, locations and famous scenes in the movie using just a few props and a lot of theatrical ingenuity and split second quick changes.The company currently includes Robert Petkoff as the dashing hero Richard Hannay, Billy Carter as Clown #1, Cameron Pow as Clown #2 and Brittany Vicars as Pamela/Annabella/Margaret.After beginning life in London, 39 Steps received its American premiere in September 2007 at the Huntington Theatre Company in Boston. The show moved to the Roundabout Theatre Company’s American Airlines Theatre on January 4, 2008, transferred to the Cort Theatre on April 29, 2008, and then to the Helen Hayes Theatre on January 21, 2009. After closing on Broadway on January 10, 2010, 39 Steps moved to New World Stages on March 25, 2010, where it played through January 16, 2011. View Comments
