    FEATHER ALERT

    (KRON) — California state lawmakers gathered in Sacramento on Tuesday morning to announce a new
    proposed bill, AB1314 which would enact a “Feather Alert”, or an emergency notification system to inform police law enforcement and media of a missing Indigenous person.

    Senator Rev Warnock introduced the Affordable Insulin Now Act months ago
    because Georgians are paying record prices for insulin. “I’m proud that my bill is now a part of the bipartisan package — capping insulin prices shouldn’t be a partisan issue.”

    Happy 4th of July, love to all !!

    We’ve got guts and plenty of heart…big thanks to the Biden Administration.
    The depths of Hell we’d be in today left up to the fmr president, doesn’t bear thinking about.

    Visited a little town up the road this weekend – street celebrations, sales, balloons, doors wide open, good vibes
    in the Sun. A silly trumpy parade of vehicles flashed by…
    Home today, a steady roll out of rock doves digging holes for pine nuts, blackcap chicadees, pink (male) and brown cassin finches at the bird feeder, robins about their worms, the humming birds have new sugar water in their feeder…aaand the birds are back !!

    Cancel July 4. We can’t celebrate Independence Day when women’s liberty has been lost

    “The U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Friday overturning Roe v. Wade ignored stare decisis and reversed five decades of precedent. They abandoned equality, and their decision abridges all women of their freedom, liberty, and independence.”

    10-year-old girl reportedly forced to leave Ohio for legal abortion

    “An impregnated 10-year-old Ohio girl couldn’t receive a legal abortion in her home state, creating difficult new questions for abortion opponents.”

    FORCED PREGNANCY

    “Forced pregnancy, including forced pregnancy of young girls, is a problem across Latin America.
    Forced pregnancy is defined as when a woman or girl becomes pregnant without having sought or desired it, and abortion is denied, hindered, delayed or made difficult.

    What does international law say?

    Article 7 of the Convention of Belém do Pará
    obliges states parties to “Condemn all forms of violence against women and agree to pursue, by all appropriate means and without delay, policies to prevent, punish and eradicate such violence “and also to” exercise due diligence to prevent, investigate and punish violence against women.” Therefore, the Committee of Experts, through the “Declaration on Violence against Women and Adolescents and Sexual and Reproductive Rights” issued in 2014, has recommended that States ensure sexual and reproductive health of women and their right to life, eliminating unsafe abortion and establishing laws and policies that allow abortion.

    The Commission on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women Committee and the Committee on the Rights of the Child has cataloged forced pregnancy as a harmful practice that gravely affects the rights of girls.

    The U.N. Human Rights Council has recognized that denial of abortion in cases of rape inflicts such psychological and physical trauma that it can amount to torture under international law.”

    A Congress that wanted to could, in theory,
    use the Guarantee Clause
    to defend the basic rights of citizens against overbearing and tyrannical state governments.
    It’s been done before. After the Civil War, Radical Republicans in Congress found their constitutional power to reconstruct the South chiefly in the Guarantee Clause, which they used to protect the rights of Black Americans from revanchist state governments…”

    “As recent events have made clear, powerful reactionaries are waging a successful war against American democracy using the counter-majoritarian institutions of the American political system,
    cloaking their views in a distorted version of our Constitution, where self-government means minority rule
    and the bugaboos of right-wing culture warriors are somehow “deeply rooted” in our “history and traditions.”

    But the Republic is not defenseless.
    The Constitution gives our elected officials the power
    to restrain a lawless Supreme Court,
    protect citizens from the “sinister legislation” of the states, punish those states for depriving their residents of the right to vote and expel insurrectionists from Congress.”

    Unfortunately for life on Earth:

    “The opinion didn’t just happen;
    opponents of reproductive rights executed a complex, years-long strategy to achieve their regressive goal.
    On the climate crisis, a similar dynamic unfolded.”

    “Fundamentally … the case will effectively determine whether,
    according to the six conservative justices on the Supreme Court, the government has any authority to impose regulations at all.”

    Excerpts of Ms. Brittney Griner’s letter to the President were made public through her representatives:

    “As I sit here in a Russian prison, alone with my thoughts and without the protection of my wife, family, friends, Olympic jersey, or any accomplishments, I’m terrified I might be here forever.”

    “On the 4th of July, our family normally honors the service of those who fought for our freedom, including my father who is a Vietnam War Veteran. It hurts thinking about how I usually celebrate this day because freedom means something completely different to me this year.”

    “I realize you are dealing with so much, but please don’t forget about me and the other American detainees. Please do all you can to bring us home.”

    The World Needs Wicked Scientists
    BY MARK MORITZ, NICHOLAS C. KAWA
    How can we train the next generation of researchers to tackle society’s most vexing problems?

    Quick take:

    “The term wicked problems has been used to describe a wide range of social and cultural issues that seem difficult or even impossible to solve.
    There is an urgent need for programs that bring together transdisciplinary teams specifically trained to consider both the complexity and the political nature of wicked problems.
    Those trained as wicked scientists will be better positioned and prepared to intervene on such grand challenges in ways that can yield more equitable outcomes.”
