You said you would never forget and never forgive the trauma caused on that day. To you, what is the ideal outcome of these hearings?”

    John Fetterman.

    Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, discusses his tight race with Republican opponent Dr. Oz. On his tattoos coming under GOP attacks,
    Fetterman explains to Joy Reid that these markings signify milestones in his battle against gun violence as mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania.
    “It was a deeply personal issue. I ran on that issue and I was able to stop it or five-and-a-half years.”

  11. October 5, 2022 at 2:01 pm

    We need to ban animal testing.
    Dr. Oz’s killing over 300 dogs is a perfect example of why.

    After the Senate passed a bill that would eliminate a federal mandate to conduct animal testing, details about Oz’s experiments showed how the bill wouldn’t go far enough.

    Remarks by Vice President Harris in a Conversation on Reproductive Rights

    OCTOBER 05, 2022
    (exerpts)

    “I just love Venn diagrams. You know, the three circles — right? — sometimes there are more — and the intersection.

    And so I asked them, “Show me from which states we are seeing attacks on voting rights.” One circle. “From which state are we seeing attacks on LGBTQ rights.” Another circle. “From which states are we seeing attacks on women’s health rights.” You would not be surprised to see the intersection.”

    “And I think that’s a big part of the advice I’d give right now is: You’re not alone, and so let’s organize. Let’s organize. Let’s link arms, and do what we need to do, including in the next 34 days, around the country. (Applause.)”

    “-there’s nothing about this movement that in any way is trying to convert people, to change people in terms of what are their deeply held beliefs as it relates to their faith. There’s nothing at all about that. It’s simply saying the government shouldn’t be telling an individual woman what to do. And I think we should speak that affirmatively so we don’t leave the inference being something we don’t intend.”

    ROME, Oct 7 (Reuters) – Italy’s outgoing government has adopted a new plan for LGBT rights just before handing over the reins to a right-wing administration that promises to be far more socially conservative.

    “We weren’t very ideological, we were very concrete,” Equal Opportunities Minister Elena Bonetti told Reuters on Friday, saying the contents of the document were not controversial.

    The 30-page “National LGBT+ Strategy 2022-2025,” formally approved on Oct. 6, aims to fight discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in schools, universities, hospitals, prisons, sport clubs, and the workplace in general.

    It recommends measures including LGBT-awareness courses for teachers, doctors, police officers and prison guards, monitoring homophobic language in the media, and adding specific anti-LGBT discrimination clauses in national labour agreements.”

    History Was Made as Nicole Aunapu Mann Became the First Native American Woman Launched into Space

    By Levi Rickert and Neely Bardwell
    “In an interview with Native News Online in August, Mann described some of the work the crew plans to accomplish during their time at the station. She also spoke about how she did not think about becoming an astronaut until later in her career.

    “I didn’t figure that out until a little bit later on in life as a young girl growing up in Northern California,” Mann said. “I was certainly interested in math and science, but I didn’t really realize that being an astronaut was in the realm of possibility. So it wasn’t until I was flying jets in the Marine Corps, looking at my future career options, that I started looking at potentially becoming a test pilot and, from there, an astronaut. It took me a little time to get it all figured out.”

    • October 7, 2022 at 2:35 pm

      “Nicole has accomplished a feat that few Americans dare to dream and much fewer from the reservations,” the RVIT (Round Valley Indian Tribes) said. “She has opened a door and blazed a trail for Indian girls all over America, and especially from Round Valley, literally helping them set their sights, dreams, and goals beyond this world, proving that there is no limit.”

      “The tribes said they are planning a community watch party in her honor, and wish to celebrate by watching the launch. They also intend to theme next year’s annual California Indian Days Festival next fall in Mann’s honor and continued success. ”

      “Aside from Mann’s career at NASA, she is a Colonel in the Marine Corps who flew combat missions for Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. She has had 2,500 flight hours in 25 types of aircraft, 200 carrier arrestments and 47 combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
