first_imgThe move follows several weeks of high-level meetings in the Pentagon among military chiefs, secretaries and Defense Department leaders, including one Monday involving Carter and the chiefs of the various services.Military leaders have pointed to the gradual — and ultimately successful — transition after the ban on gays serving openly in the military was lifted in 2011. Although legislation repealing that ban passed Congress in late 2010, the military services spent months conducting training and reviews before the decision actually took effect the following September.The latest Pentagon move comes just weeks after the Supreme Court upheld the right of same-sex couples to marry.Officials familiar with the Pentagon meetings said the chiefs of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force did not express opposition to lifting the ban. Instead, they said the military leaders asked for time to figure out health care, housing and other questions and also to provide information and training to the troops to ensure a smooth transition.Although guidelines require that transgender individuals be dismissed from the military, the services in recent months have required more senior leaders to make the final decisions on those cases, effectively slowing the dismissal process.

The Associated Press has learned that Pentagon leaders are finalizing plans aimed at lifting the ban on transgender individuals serving in the military. Senior U.S. officials say an announcement is expected this week. They say the military would have six months to determine the impact and work out details, with the presumption that they would end one of the last gender- or sexuality-based barriers to military service. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File) 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes “Obviously this isn’t finished, but Secretary Carter’s clear statement of intent means that transgender service members should and will be treated with the same dignity as other service members,” said Allyson Robinson, Army veteran and policy director for an association of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender military personnel called Service Members, Partners and Allies for Respect and Tolerance for All, or SPARTA.Brynn Tannehill, who was a Navy pilot before leaving the force and transitioning to a woman, recalled the difficulties when serving.“It was stressful and it was something that I couldn’t talk with anyone about, because if you even breathed a word of it you didn’t know what was going to happen,” said Tannehill, who still serves in Individual Ready Reserve. “You could lose your career, that I’d worked so hard for.”Several Congress members, including Rep. Adam Smith, ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, expressed support for Carter’s decision. But the more conservative Family Research Council questioned the change.“Considering the abysmal condition of our military and a decline in readiness, why is this a top priority for the Obama administration?” said retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, the council’s executive vice president. “The Pentagon must answer whether this proposed policy makes our military more capable of performing its mission. The answer is a very clear and resounding no.” Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility How men can have a healthy 2019 Comments   Share   Top Stories The transgender issue came to the fore as the military struggled with how to deal with convicted national security leaker Chelsea Manning’s request for hormone therapy and other treatment while she’s in prison.

New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon’s current regulations banning transgender individuals from serving in the military are outdated, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Monday, ordering a six-month study aimed at formally ending one of the last gender- or sexuality-based barriers to military service.Carter said he is creating a working group that will review the policies and determine if lifting the ban would have any impact on the military’s ability to be ready for battle. But he said the group will begin with the presumption that transgender people should be able to serve openly “without adverse impact on military effectiveness and readiness, unless and except where objective, practical impediments are identified.” The plan, which was first reported by The Associated Press, gives the services time to methodically work through the legal, medical and administrative issues and develop training to ease any transition, and senior leaders believed six months would be sufficient.“The Defense Department’s current regulations regarding transgender service members are outdated and are causing uncertainty that distracts commanders from our core missions,” Carter said in a statement released Monday. “At a time when our troops have learned from experience that the most important qualification for service members should be whether they’re able and willing to do their job, our officers and enlisted personnel are faced with certain rules that tell them the opposite.”Carter asked his personnel undersecretary, Brad Carson, to lead the working group of senior military and civilian leaders to take an objective look at the issue, including the costs, and determine whether it would create any insurmountable problems that could derail the plan. The group would also develop uniform guidelines.During the six months, transgender individuals would still not be able to join the military, but any decisions to force out those already serving would be referred to Carson. One senior official said the goal was to avoid forcing any transgender service members to leave during that time. That official was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Some of the key concerns involved in the repeal of the ban include whether the military would conduct or pay for the medical costs of surgeries and other treatment associated with any gender transition, as well as which physical training or testing standards transgender individuals would be required to meet during different stages of their transition.Officials said the military also wants time to tackle questions about where transgender troops would be housed, what uniforms they would wear, what berthing they would have on ships, which bathrooms they would use and whether their presence would affect the ability of small units to work well together. The military has dealt with many similar questions as it integrated the ranks by race, gender and sexual orientation.Transgender people — those who identify with a different gender than they were born with and sometimes take hormone treatments or have surgery to develop the physical characteristics of their preferred gender — are banned from military service. But studies and other surveys have estimated that as many as 15,000 transgender people serve in the active-duty military and the reserves, often in secret but in many cases with the knowledge of their unit commander or peers.last_img read more

first_img Times haven’t been too swell for the “”Federal Housing Administration””:http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/housing/fhahistory. That was apparent, by some accounts, “”when the agency raised insurance premiums for lenders of single-family mortgages in February””:https://themreport.com/articles/fha-raises-insurance-premiums-to-shore-up-mortgage-fund-2012-02-28, a choice it made to shore up its crisis-weary Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund.Now, according to “”Fitch Ratings””:http://www.fitchratings.com/web/en/dynamic/fitch-home.jsp, a new tide of mortgage delinquencies and price declines may tip the fund back toward troubled waters ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô and possibly insolvency.[IMAGE]The ratings agency said Friday that it sees problems arising from a difference between 90-day past due delinquency patterns for home loans backed by the agency and those without government guarantees.””This may eventually force the FHA to look for opportunities to put back some defaulted loans to the banks, particularly if the agency’s funding status worsens and U.S. home prices fail to rebound quickly,”” it said in a statement.According to Fitch, the FHA’s fiscal position benefited from the raise in upfront premiums but stays “”very weak”” in lieu of its inability to meet a congressionally required 2 percent capital buffer. [COLUMN_BREAK]The FHA capital ratio buffer currently stands at just 0.24 percent.The ratings agency found that government-backed mortgages constitute 83 percent, or about $66 billion, of 90-day past due delinquencies currently out there on the market.””This highlights the dimension of the growing delinquency problem for the FHA, given the predominant position of FHA-guaranteed loans in the troubled asset categories of major banks,”” Fitch said. “”While delinquency rates for nonguaranteed loans have been improving steadily at these institutions, the trend for FHA-guaranteed loans is starkly different.””A down-payment requirement increase on its way will likely worsen matters for the FHA, according to Fitch, which said that it expects the agency to resort to “”unconventional”” practices in order to prevent a bailout scenario and shore up the beleaguered fund.The scenario isn’t far-off from a crisis several experts predicted last year. “”Joseph Gyourko””:https://real-estate.wharton.upenn.edu/profile/805/, a real estate and finance professor at the “”University of Pennsylvania””:http://www.wharton.upenn.edu/, reported last fall that the $2.6 billion capital deficit vis-├âãÆ├é┬á-vis $1 trillion in insurance-in-force could mean a bailout.Just by how much?

(Photo by Brad Barket/Invision/AP) NEW YORK, N.Y. – Bruce Springsteen teamed up with country star Eric Church on a version of “Working on the Highway” and Jon Stewart laced into Donald Trump at a bawdy event Monday in New York that gathered comedians and musicians to help raise money for military veterans.Springsteen, a vocal critic of several White House policies, avoided politics completely at the Stand Up for Heroes show, instead offering a few off-colour jokes and four songs, including “Dancing in the Dark,” ”The Hard Land” and “If I Should Fall Behind” with his wife, Patti Scialfa.The Boss, in jeans, a white shirt and a jean jacket, was returning to the event now in its 12 year, having been the musical guest since the beginning. Last year, the Red Hot Chili Peppers took his spot as he worked on his one-man “Springsteen on Broadway.”Stand Up for Heroes is co-presented by the Bob Woodruff Foundation and the New York Comedy Festival. It kicks off the festival and raises money for the Woodruff foundation, which funds programs for injured veterans and their families. The foundation is named for the ABC news anchor injured in Iraq in 2006. It raised over $5.4 million at the event, held at the 6,000-seat Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.Stewart, also a veteran of the event, opened his set ridiculing the notion that America faced a threat from thousands of Central American migrants travelling northward in a caravan. “I’m so scared,” he said. “There’s thousands of sharecroppers coming at America at 1 to 2 miles per hour. They’ll be here by April.”Jimmy Carr, a British comedian, hit the stage with mostly blue, edgy material, but had some jokes at the expense of the commander in chief. “Walls work,” he deadpanned. “I was in China last year. I didn’t see one Mexican.”But the other comedians on the bill stayed away from politics, despite the event being held on the eve of divisive midterm elections. Last year’s event was more political, with comics such as John Oliver and Trevor Noah attending.This time, Jim Gaffigan poked fun at his able girth and told a story about having his appendix removed in Alaska and then going for a hike when he and his family encountered a bear. “I looked at the tour guide. He said, ‘Don’t worry, I have bear spray.’ I was like, ‘Do you have anything stronger?’”Seth Meyers returned to a very personal source of material, namely the birth of his children. For his first, his wife was in so much discomfort that she was on her hands and knees in the back of an Uber on their way to the hospital with her head out the window, screaming, “I do not like this.” Myers noted: “In New York City, nobody blinked an eye.”Church played three songs, including “Desperate Man,” ”Hippie Radio” and the unreleased “Still Standing Their Ground.” He strapped on a guitar to join Springsteen on “Working on the Highway.”The audience also cheered dozens of servicemen and servicewomen from Iraq and Afghanistan who were seated in the first few rows. “These wars are not over,” Woodruff said. “There is still a need for our mission and there will be that need for years to come.” He and his wife also urged everyone to vote on Tuesday.___Online: http://sufh.bobwoodrufffoundation.org/___Mark Kennedy is at http://twitter.com/KennedyTwitscenter_img Bruce Springsteen, Seth Meyers headline veterans fundraiserlast_img read more

first_imgOctober 21, 2006 Alumnus Jeff Stein reports on the award ceremony: Here’s how it was earlier this week at the National Design Awards at the Cooper-Hewitt/Smithsonian Museum in New York City: it was crowded, noisy, warm, and every man in the place was dressed in BLACK. First, of course, as with any great awards ceremony, there were DRINKS! And hors doeuvres. In a big tent, blocking 91st Street, in front of the Cooper-Hewitt, folks began to arrive, New Yorkers mostly, a little reticent to approach Soleri who was looking very smart in his formal-wear. Except for official photographers who would lead him away from time to time for portraits. A good interview is in this month’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Journal, multiple copies of which were available to party-goers. There were around 500 of those. There was President Roger Mandle of Brown University, chair of the National Design Awards this year. And architect Richard Meier. And Rev. Howard Moody; he is with us, as is Dino DeConcini. And there’s my neighbor Martha Schwartz, landscape architect from Cambridge. And Diane von Furstenberg. Photo: Alumnus Doug Lee’s daughter Sonya, all grown up, congratulates the award-winner. [Photo & text: Jeff Stein] No one was reticent about approaching Jim Labioda. “Pardon me,” said a tall woman. “Are you Governor Pataki?” “No, Ma’am,” said Labioda, resplendent in a tuxedo that we believe had once been worn by economist John Kenneth Galbraith. “That man right there?” he said, pointing to Roger Tomalty, “I’m his assistant.” By 7:30PM the drinks tent was full of celebrants; no one could move or breathe, a hint that it was time to traipse through the museum lobby and into the dinner tent set-up to cover the garden courtyard of the Museum. 55 tables of 9, black tablecloths, black stemware, bright red goody-bags, six giant video screens, and slinkys, that springy child’s toy, as decoration everywhere. Paolo was in the middle of the room at a table of award recipients, seated next to architect Thom Mayne’s wife, who was in a backless and low-cut gown, accepting an award on behalf of her husband who was in Paris instead of here. Food began to arrive at the tables, and wine; and speeches and video began to flow from the dias. In no time it was dessert and the award presentations. Spike Lee presented an award, mentioning that the Mets were up 1 to 0, bottom of the third. And Robert Downey Jr. said something cheerful about a young award recipient. Awards and their presentors move light and fast. Photo: Alumnus Jim Labioda and Arcosanti planning intern Mario Nuzzolese. [Photo & text: Jeff Stein] Then Milton Glaser presents the Lifetime Achievement Award to Paolo. Glaser actually knows Soleri, understands the work, admires it all. This shows. The crowd, which till now was not thinking about much, slows down, quiets. And Paolo has a few things to say to this crowd, too. About architecture, about religion as dramaturgy, about our responsibility to the future. Paolo’s closeup is live on all the big video screens, his voice miked throughout the giant tent. And then someone hands him the award, a kind of extruded star a foot long made of some mystery material, and its over. Everyone toasts the winners with champaigne, some folks gather up slinkys (I think we’ll be seeing a few of these at Arcosanti), and now, with the ice broken at last, people do come up to Paolo to talk. More desserts and socializing and drinks (witnessing awards is thirsty work!) in the Museum which has thoughtfully opened its bookstore to the crowd. And night settles on the city. Thursday morning, the sun rises over the Atlantic to shine on Paolo Soleri, winner of the National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement.

first_imgThe 4,500 tons of used tyres stockpiled at the Latouros quarry near Dali, outside Nicosia, will be transferred to a secure site at the Vassiliko Cement factory, Environment Commissioner Ioanna Panayiotou said on Tuesday after a meeting chaired by President Nicos Anastasiades.“Anastasiades responded to the urgent need to transfer the tyres and convened a meeting with all the relevant departments. It was decided that the tyres would be taken to a safe area of Vassiliko and the required funding was approved,” Panayiotou said.Even though there was a fire at Vasiliko earlier this month caused by bruning tyres, Panayiotou said the “area is safe and there is a licenced area and in the future things will be handled correctly”.The tyres at the site have been collected from tyre merchants around Nicosia.Managing director of Latouros Quarries Antonis Antoniou Latouros said on Monday that if the tyres caught fire where they are they would cause severe air pollution, as the smoke would cover a range of tens of kilometres.“In case of fire, as happened on July 3 at Vassiliko cement factory where piles of used tyres were wrapped in flames, the outcome would be devastating,” he said.Director of the department of environment Costas Hadjipanayiotou said that the company responsible for collecting and processing the tyres is breaking the law, as it ignored decrees issued on February 29, 2016, and refused to remove the tyres.“I am in touch with the legal services so that they can authorise our department to undertake the management of the tyres. But the state must be legally secure to make this move,” he said.Owner of the company responsible for collecting the tyres Giorgos Pavlides claimed that there are financial interests preventing their disposal, resulting in large quantities accumulating, adding that the department of the environment is not providing any solutions.“For three years, we were stockpiling tyres at the quarry. We sent a letter to the environmental department and asked Hadjipanayiotou to find a solution for the disposal of the tyres, but we did not receive any response. They also refused to take shredded tyres out of the quarry,” he said.Meanwhile, MPs agreed last Wednesday that a single system needs to be in place for the collection and management of rubber to avoid incidents like the large fire earlier in the month near the Vasiliko cement factory which was caused by large piles of old tyres being stored next to a flammable substance.The issue was discussed at the House environment committee, where MPs heard that if the fire had not been contained it would have caused a huge disaster in the area as the factory is located in the same area as the VTTV oil depot and an electricity authority (EAC) substation.Disy MP Giorgos Karoulas, who registered the issue for discussion, said that it is important that a single system is introduced for the collection and management of old tyres, to ensure the safety and health of members of the public.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
