Man arrested after allegedly filming girls in Target dressing room

first_imgLifeSiteNews 1 July 2016A 22-year-old man was arrested and charged with violation of privacy last week after he allegedly recorded underage girls in a Target changing room.The incident allegedly took place at a New Hampshire Target store on June 22, just days after the two-month anniversary of the retail giant’s announcement of a new policy allowing biological men to access women’s restrooms and dressing rooms and vice versa.According to the Bedford Police Department, the man was Zachary Bishop of Raymond, New Hampshire. He fled the Target store before the police arrived but subsequently turned himself in after police issued a warrant for his arrest.The arrest comes amid fears that the transgender bathroom policies sweeping the nation, like that adopted at Target, provide easier access for predators. Bishop would not be the first person to take advantage of the broad-reaching policies.In February, a Seattle man entered a swimming pool changing room and undressed in front of a young girls’ swim team, claiming he had the right to do so under transgender policies.In 2014, it was revealed that a convicted rapist who once sexually assaulted a five-year-old girl claimed to be transgender in order to gain access to a women’s shelter, where he again assaulted women.READ MORE: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/man-arrested-on-privacy-charge-after-incident-at-target-dressing-roomlast_img read more

RE lessons at risk, say faith leaders

first_imgRE teachers say that religious education is being squeezed out of the school curriculumReligious education in schools is under threat, faith leaders have warned.Leaders representing Christians, Sikhs, Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists said they were “gravely concerned” about the “negative impact” that current government policies were having.In a letter to the Daily Telegraph they called for RE to be included in the new English Baccalaureate.The Department for Education (DfE) said the English Baccalaureate “does not stop any school offering RE GCSEs””.In the letter published in the Telegraph, faith leaders warned that a failure to act would be a “serious flaw” in David Cameron’s Big Society project.The signatories included the Rev Michael Heaney, president of Churches Together in England, and Farooq Murad, secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain.Undermining REThey write: “Changes to the role and capacity of local authorities, coupled with the extension of the academies programme, are in danger of undermining the nature and quality of RE.”“Also, recent policy initiatives in relation to GCSE examinations are already leading to a deterioration in the provision for RE in many secondary schools.”RE teachers recently warned that religious education could disappear from many secondary schools because of the new English Baccalaureate.A DfE spokesman said it is compulsory for every student to study RE up to 16, adding that success in RE GCSE “continues to be recognised in the annual GCSE tables, as well as being a valuable qualification in its own right”.He said: “The English Baccalaureate does not stop any school offering RE GCSEs and we have been clear that pupils should take the GCSEs that are right for them.Big society“It is for teachers and parents to help pupils make the right choice. All academies and free schools must offer a broad and balanced curriculum.”The “Bacc”, which was introduced last December, is a new league table measure which ranks schools according to how many pupils gain grades A*-C in GCSEs in five subject areas: English, maths, a language, science and either geography or history.A recent survey by the National Association of Teachers of Religious Education (NATRE) found that a quarter of the state-funded schools featured in its research were not teaching RE to pupils aged from 14 to 16.The faith leaders called on the prime minister to do more to develop “a clear strategy” for the subject.“Failure to work with faith communities, along with their partner academic and professional associations, would represent a serious flaw in the Big Society project,” they write.BBC News 36 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!

‘EXTENDED BUT MODIFIED’: Defensor mulls easing of quarantine rules

first_imgMODIFIED QUARANTINE. The enhanced community quarantine is an effective measure against a pandemic like the coronavirus disease 2019, says Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. of Iloilo. However, it should be observed not longer than is necessary or the economy will suffer, he stresses. The provincial government will thus tweak quarantine measures to sustain the economy, says Defensor. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN ILOILO – Gov.Arthur Defensor Jr. plans to extend the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ)being observed in the province but with modifications. Business establishmentsmay be allowed to reopen except for those where social distancing would bedifficult to observe, he said. Defensor’sIloilo City counterpart Mayor Jerry Treñas hopes to start gradually easing ECQmeasures by May 1, too. The governor alsosaid public transport may be allowed to re-operate. He, however, acknowledgedthe difficulty of ensuring that social distancing would be observed in thissector. Healthcareworkers, those who have to do errands for essentials (food, health, utilities),those engaged in the delivery of goods, and those working in establishmentsthat would be allowed to resume operations, said Defensor. As of yesterday,April 23, Iloilo province has 18 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with four deaths. For thismodified quarantine measures, a modified ECQ pass will also be issued, added thegovernor. The ECQ startedon March 20. It was originally intended to last until April 14 but this wasextended up to April 30. Beginning May1, according to Defensor, business establishments would be allowed to resumeoperations except for those where social distancing would be difficult to carryout. “Iloilo Cityshould consider prepping for a phased reopening, and scaling back of the localgovernment unit’s (LGU) support for the economy. The phased reopening is astrategy that will protect the people from the (corona)virus while allowinglife to progressively return to normal, albeit a ‘new normal’,” according to professorsMaria Elisa Baliao, Rhodella Ibabao, Hanny John Mediodia, Cristabel Parcon,Juhn Cris Espia, and Vicente Balinas. Travelrestrictions, however, would remain, said Defensor, and provincial border checkpointswould continue. But an ECQshould not be observed longer than is necessary or the economy will suffer, saidDefensor.center_img Treñas said therewould still be restrictions on public transport, school classes and religiousgatherings, among others while quarantine rules and regulations are lifted instages or phases. Treñasthus welcomed the inputs of professors from the University of the PhilippinesVisayas (UPV). “Ang akon langginapangayo kooperasyon because we haveto open already. Naluoy ako sa mgapumoluyo ta nga waay trabaho,” said Treñas./PN Defensor saidyesterday he was finalizing an executive order on a two-week modified ECQ, fromMay 1 to 15. Who would beallowed to travel? “Thissituation is new to us all. We have no experience in this regard so we need allthe help we can get from the experts,” he said. Defensor wouldbe consulting with mayors before finalizing his executive order on a modifiedECQ. So there would likely be more details to include in this tweakedquarantine, he said. Under thecurrent ECQ, home quarantine is strictly being enforced. Public transport issuspended. Business establishments are closed except those dealing withessentials (food, health and utilities) such as public markets, grocery stores,pharmacies, banks, gas stations, hospitals, and food deliveries. “The enhancedcommunity quarantine is the most effective quarantine measure against somethinglike this (coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic),” said Defensor. Defensor alsoclarified the upcoming executive order is not an “exit plan” from the ECQ but agradual transition in quarantine measures.last_img read more

EQ, Sweet, MSD take new places in IMCA de­cal program

first_imgVINTON, Iowa – Three marketing partners already very familiar to drivers in all sanctioned divisions have new roles in IMCA’s national decal program this season.EngineQuest becomes title sponsor of both Northern and Southern regions for IMCA Stock Cars. Sweet Manufacturing joins the national program for Modifieds while MSD is new for the Stock Car national program.Karl Chevrolet and Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center return as title sponsor of Northern SportMod and Southern SportMod divisions; this season will be the second when drivers in both divisions are required to display Karl and SDPC decals on their race cars.There is no change from 2014 in required decals for Hobby Stocks.“We had relatively few changes in our national decal program again this year, which speaks volumes about the support our sponsors continue to give drivers in all IMCA divisions,” noted Kevin Yoder, director of marketing for the sanctioning body. “Requirements for decal placement are also very similar to last year. We will begin mailing decal packets in mid-March to drivers who have purchased 2015 licenses and have already emailed placement location information to more than 200 companies that do wraps.”Drivers must provide proof of decal placement to become eligible for national and regional point fund shares.Also returning as divisional title sponsors are Xtreme Motor Sports for the IMCA Modifieds, Eagle Motorsports for IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars, Sunoco Race Fuels for both the IMCA Stock Cars and Hobby Stocks, and Mach-1 for the Sport Compacts.Regional title sponsors for Modifieds are Larry Shaw Racing, Western; Razor Chassis, South Central; Jet Racing; Central; Belleville Motorsports, North Central; and Dirt Works Race Cars, Eastern.Second-year title sponsors for the Hobby Stock regions are Big Daddy Race Cars in the North and Charger Chassis in the South.Drivers in all eight IMCA divisions will receive Speedway Motors Weekly Racing decals, which are to be dis­played on both sides and on the right rear of their car.In addition to Speedway Motors, Xtreme Motor Sports and the regional sponsor, Modifieds are also required to display Performance Bodies, Summit, Scorpion Racing Products, Sweet and Jaz Products decals.Required decals for Stock Cars are Speedway Motors, EngineQuest, Intercomp, Holley, MSD, Sunoco and Fast Shafts.Hobby Stocks must display Speedway Motors, regional sponsor, Performance Bodies, Karl Performance and Sunoco decals.Along with Speedway Motors, Karl and Scoggin-Dickey, required decals for SportMods are KRC, Smiley’s, Bassett and Fast Shafts.Modified, Late Model, Stock Car and SportMod drivers are also required to display Hoosier decals above the rear tire on both sides of their car.Late Model, Sprint Car and Sport Compact drivers also receive decals but there is no designated placement for those divisions.“While Sprint Cars, Late Models and Sport Compacts don’t have a required location for their decals, we recommend having both sides the same and utilizing the front or bottom of the doors, or the wing on a Sprint Car,” Yoder said. “All classes should get the decals on their car as soon as they receive them and we will be verifying their placement through photos and track visits all season.”Decal packets will also include applicable contingency sign-up forms, which must be filled out and returned to the IMCA home office by Aug. 1. The rookie of the year application will be published in the point section of the Inside IMCA newsletter.The Aug. 1 deadline also applies for mailing or emailing a photo of the car, showing proof of required decal placement, to Yoder at the IMCA home office.“We encourage drivers to send in pictures of their cars early in the season,” Yoder said. “There are times throughout the year when sponsors contact us about using those pictures in advertisements so it’s always handy to have those on hand.”Car photos can be emailed to Yoder at [email protected] or mailed to his attention at the IMCA home office, Box 921, 1800 West D Street in Vinton, Iowa, 52349.last_img read more

Enrique: Gerrard a quality player

first_img The 33-year-old England skipper had a hand in all four of the goals against Fulham at Anfield, two of which came directly from his set-piece deliveries. And while he does not get forward as much as he used to, he still has the vision and passing range to hurt sides who give him time on the ball. Liverpool defender Jose Enrique believes captain Steven Gerrard’s role may have altered from the days of his barnstorming best but his quality still endures. “He is still young, you can’t forget that, he is 22 and he is playing fantastically. “He had the assist for Luis and I think he is doing really well and I hope he stays like this because it will be good for the team.” Enrique made his first appearance since October 5 after being forced to rest a knee problem which restricted his training programme, coming on as a second-half substitute for Aly Cissokho. “I still feel a bit stiff. It’s been quite a long time away and I’m still not feeling 100 per cent, but we have a break again and hopefully now I can carry on as Christmas is going to be very busy and I can be available,” the former Newcastle defender said. “I got a kick and had some bruising on the bone which gave me a lot of pain. “When I trained for a couple of days it got tight around my knee and I couldn’t train. “The month I was playing after that I was training only once a week because I couldn’t train any more, so it has been difficult for me because, of course, you lose your fitness. “When he (manager Brendan Rodgers) had more players available – because Cissokho was injured also – we decided to stop and rest my knee and hopefully it won’t give me any more problems.” “Gerrard has been playing fantastic as always, our captain is really important for us,” said Enrique. “When you get older you lose something physically; when he was playing with (Fernando) Torres for example he was playing behind the striker and now he is deeper on the ball. “He is playing with Lucas (Leiva) in a role he did not play when he was younger but the quality of the passes, crosses and free-kicks he is still doing the same thing. His quality is amazing.” Gerrard’s fellow midfielder Jordan Henderson also impressed against the Cottagers, threading a brilliant through-ball for the first of Luis Suarez’s two goals. The 22-year-old has earned himself an England recall on the back of a number of good performances this season. “Jordan is a hard worker and has been doing really well in training and now he is getting the results,” added the Spaniard. “He is working hard and that is why he is playing. Like everyone when you arrive here – even me – you improve as a player. “If you don’t improve in a few years it is a problem because when you play with these type of players you should improve every year, even if you don’t want to.
