Norway's beach handball team fined for wearing shorts instead of bikini bottoms

https://www.sbs.com.au/news/norway-s-beach-handball-team-fined-for-wearing-shorts-instead-of-bikini-bottoms?fbclid=IwAR0KoIFekpyT51EBrjgdjWnXbJ7ctH304mTioHdp2B2it1t0fi5aMti6ZJI

“Beach Handball’s rules stipulate that female players must wear tops and bikini bottoms. Men wear tank tops and shorts.”

“The European Handball Federation (EHF) said in a statement that its disciplinary commission had dealt with “a case of improper clothing” in the bronze medal match against Spain.”

 

Way to go ladies! How can I help pay their fine?

Fox News is starting to fold on their anti vax message, probably in fear of lawsuits!

Sean Hannity  after 8 months  is finally pleading with his viewers to get the vaccine!

I could only find this "Breakfast show" , which I've never seen before, with the actual Hannity clip starting around 1:22.

How America unleashed hell's agent in its own backyard: After Agent Orange left a trail of birth defects in Vietnam, a new film lays bare how the US sprayed it back home with devastating consequences

  • Herbicide known as 2,4,5-T is the highly toxic main ingredient of Agent Orange

  • The U.S. military stopped using it in 1971, but it was used in other parts of the US

  • It left a trail of appalling birth defects, just as it had when it was used in Vietnam 

By Tom Leonard In New York For The Daily Mail 22 July 2021

“When Carol Van Strum moved to Five Rivers, Oregon, in 1974, she thought she had found the perfect rural idyll. 

Surrounded by National Forest, her four young children could grow up close to nature. They loved fishing and playing by the river, fascinated by the little ‘dipper’ birds that sat on the rocks.

Then one day the children fell sick, choking and gasping.

Down at the river, Carol found a scene of devastation — dead ducklings, crayfish and trout. 

The cause seemed fairly obvious: a U.S. Forestry Service helicopter had been flying overhead the day before, spraying something over the land. 

Nobody knew what it was but, ‘a lot of people assumed, “Well it’s the government doing it, it must be OK,” ’ says Carol. ‘We called the fire service and they said: “Oh no, it’s perfectly safe.” ’ But it wasn’t.

The chopper was spraying a herbicide known as 2,4,5-T — the highly toxic main ingredient of Agent Orange, the notorious chemical defoliant used to blanket swathes of South-East Asia during the Vietnam War.”

Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker, authors of the new book I Alone Can Fix It, chronicling former President Trump’s tumultuous last year in office, joined Anderson Cooper 360 Wednesday, where they shared exclusive audio from an interview with Trump for the book. In the audio, which was chock full of rehashed falsehoods and conspiracies, Trump revealed that he and the January 6 insurrectionists at the Capitol shared a common goal.

“I wanted — I mean, personally, what I wanted is what they wanted,” Trump said. “They showed up just to show support, because I happen to believe the election was rigged at a level like nothing has ever been rigged before.”

Trump went on to once again lament the fact that former Vice President Mike Pence didn’t personally overturn the election the day of the insurrection, a power that a Vice President does not have under the Constitution.

It seems obvious and easily provable that Donald Trump watched the violent mob January 6th insurrection live on TV from it's beginning and was also being kept well informed of it's happening and ever increasing intensity ( with much destruction, traumatic fear, injury and even death just as regular Americans could see for themselves on TV as well ) and yet "purposely" delayed using his power, authority and especially his constitutional duty "responsibility" to immediately stop it.

Any rational person in this country knows Trump clearly and aggressively incited that mob to violently attack our most sacred institution Capital Building full of members of our congress and police. Including his own Vice President!

The action of Trump in purposely delaying his means to quell and stop the extremely violent January 6th mob attack on our Capital building and everyone in it to save lives, property damage and serious emotional trauma to them, is the most outrageous high level crime he committed in his entire presidency imo.

Trump not being charged with aiding and abetting these murder and mayhem causing attackers along with purposely abrogating his authority to stop their terrorist attack for personal political gain or any other reasons is just another of the most headshaking crazy "why nots" of our current times.

If Trump not only watched what 10's of millions of Americans were watching on national TV in real time from the very beginning of the terrifying violent siege and for the next two hours after, and then purposely refused to take any action to stop it for that time until much damage and injury and even killing occurred ( and allegedly even ignored pleas to take quelling action sooner by his own family?) what would or should anyone call this action?

If Trump were actually charged with crimes in his purposeful non-action to stop the Capital building attack and had to face a trial by jury, I would think the jurors would consider Trump's quoted public documented statement above saying "he wanted what the Jan 6th, Capital Building attackers wanted" as just about the most self incriminating piece of testimony that would force them to find him guilty of aiding and abetting. Especially in a civil trial involving claimants who filed personal liability lawsuits against him for his responsibility in the injuries and even deaths of the January 6th Capital Building attack and seige.

Joe,

I wrote this on February 15th in this thread:

Involuntary manslaughter is defined as the unintentional death of an individual as a result of another person's negligent actions.

In the United States, all states define negligent homicide by statute, often defining the offense as involuntary manslaughter.[1]

 

https://reischlawfirm.com/criminally-negligent-homicide-vs-manslaughter-whats-difference/

“The law states that you can be charged with criminally negligent homicide if your criminally negligent behavior caused the death of another person. On the other hand, the law states that you can be charged with manslaughter if your reckless behavior caused the death of another person. Therefore, the difference between these two crimes is the type of behavior that caused the victim’s death.

Criminal Negligence vs. Reckless Behavior

Criminal negligence is legally defined as the failure to realize that your behavior is so dangerous that it could kill someone. In order to prove you were criminally negligent, the prosecution must be able to show that a reasonable person in your situation would have realized that their behavior was potentially dangerous.

In the eyes of the law, you are reckless when you act in a manner that puts others at risk even though you are aware that your behavior could seriously harm or kill another person.

Steve Thomas

To put it simply, the difference between these two legal definitions comes down to risk awareness. A person who is criminally negligent did not realize his behavior was dangerous, even though he should have, whereas a reckless person knew his behavior was dangerous, but ignored the risks.”

Trump’s new Bitcoin

Trump-loving Republicans snatch up 'magacoins' -- and quickly fall victim to data breach

By Travis Gettys July 22, 2021

https://www.rawstory.com/magacoins/

“More than 1,000 people -- including Republican leaders and conservative media personalities -- have already signed up for the pro-Donald Trump cryptocurrency magacoin.

Poor security on a website associated with the cryptocurrency exposed users' personal information, including passwords and IP addresses, and revealed that the vast majority of the magacoin produced has gone to its self-described creator Marc Zelinka, a Trump-loving consultant, and a Super PAC associated with him, reported The Guardian. “

Unvaccinated people are flocking to the Titanic Museum in Branson, Missouri, where masks and vaccinations are not required, and spending hours marveling at the sight of the death and destruction caused by not having enough lifeboats.

I kid you not.

The infection rate in Branson, MO is running at 20%.

One's neck is sore at all the shaking of one's head.
