Cubas first daughter has gone beyond Castro name

first_img Comments   Share   But no matter how much Castro desires to set her own course, controversy will follow her on her trip to San Francisco precisely because of her father and uncle, both reviled by many Cuban-Americans and enemies of Washington for more than half a century.When word came last week that the State Department had issued an entry visa to Castro _ as well as at least 60 other Cuban scholars _ Cuban-American politicians were quick to pounce. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio accused her of bringing a campaign of anti-Americanism to U.S. shores, while New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez said he was “indignant” over her presence.They and others noted that U.S. rules prohibited Communist Party members and other high-ranking Cuban government officials from entry without special dispensation. While Mariela Castro is not officially part of the government, her personal ties to Cuban leaders are clearly evident.The State Department has refused to comment on individual visa cases. Castro is due to chair a panel on the politics of sexual diversity in San Francisco and to meet with the local LGBT community. On May 29, she is to participate in a talk at the New York Public Library.As head of Cuba’s National Center for Sex Education, or Cenesex, since 2000, Castro has acquired a much higher profile than her siblings and cousins, becoming a leading advocate for gay rights in Cuba, Latin America and beyond. Clean energy: Why it matters for Arizona That tendency to go against the grain stuck, and four decades later Castro is still speaking her mind.“It would be very easy for me to repeat what the whole world wants to hear, not contradicting anybody, being sweeter and more accepted. But my work obliges me to present realities that not everyone wants to face,” Castro said at the book launch. “I’m not going to stop doing and saying what I believe in. The day I can no longer do that, I might as well spend my time planting lettuce instead.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Top Stories Four benefits of having a wireless security system Attractive, intelligent and quick to smile, Castro has a flair for dressing elegantly in bright colors. She is commonly seen heading up annual gay pride marches in the capital, flanked by six-foot-tall transvestites. Outspoken and self-confident, she meets regularly with visiting dignitaries, including a delegation of U.S. women last year, and travels the world giving talks about gay rights.In conversation she looks questioners directly in the eye, is quick to speak and punctuates her words with animated gestures. She is reported to have two children with her husband, a Sicilian-born photographer, and a third child from a previous marriage, though even those basic details are not easily confirmed in Cuba.And while Castro does not regularly give interviews, she is far from reclusive.She is the only member of her famous family to really embrace Twitter; Fidel and Raul’s accounts are dry and impersonal, apparently managed by underlings. She’s also not afraid to mix it up with critics, as she did last year in a very public Twitter spat with dissident blogger Yoani Sanchez.Grumbling about “despicable parasites” criticizing her just hours after her debut on the social media platform, Castro tweeted: “Were you ordered by your employers to respond to me in unison and with the same predetermined script? Be creative.” Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, familycenter_img “She has put herself at the forefront of the struggle for rights for the LGBT community,” said Gloria A. Careaga Perez, a professor of psychology from the National Autonomous University of Mexico who will be on Mariela Castro’s panel at the San Francisco gathering of the Latin American Studies Association on Thursday. “What she does is praiseworthy because she is a pioneer, an academic and political authority who stands up for human rights.”Requests to interview Castro were not granted ahead of her trip, and four friends and admirers declined to speak on the record, a symptom of Cubans’ deep misgivings about openly discussing members of the Castro family.But while others are shy of giving their name, Castro has not been, particularly when it comes to her signature issue. She has lobbied for years for her father’s government to legalize same-sex marriage, something he has not done. Earlier this month, Castro said the president privately shares her views on gay rights, and declined to push him to go public.While she has no doubt benefited from her surname, Castro says it has always been important to her to have a separate identity.“I never wanted any part of that, `the daughter of …’” she said several years ago at a book launch in Havana. “I despise people who get on that kind of carriage, and I love myself very much for not doing so. I never did, and I never will.” It was a rare moment of direct confrontation between a Castro and one of the dissidents, who are officially disparaged as counterrevolutionary sellouts doing the bidding of Washington, and it showed her willingness to depart from the prepared script, even if in defense of the government.She was born July 27, 1962, to the power couple of the Cuban Revolution: Raul Castro and Vilma Espin, also a prominent guerrilla who later was president of the Federation of Cuban Women, a member of the Communist Party’s Central Committee and Fidel’s first lady stand-in for years when he had no official partner. Espin died in 2007.Mariela, who bears a close resemblance to Espin, cites her mother’s influence and has called her work a continuation of Espin’s labor to advance women’s rights in Cuba and Latin America.“She was very sweet and tender. She passed along her values in educating us,” Castro once said. By contrast, Castro sometimes quarreled with her father, though she has said she was always proud of his accomplishments.It was at college in the late 1970s that Castro had her eyes opened to the gay rights movement, as a student leader who successfully fought off attempts to have gays expelled for their sexual orientation.

From her father, she inherited a disciplined tenacity.But Mariela Castro, a married mother of three and member of Cuba’s most powerful family, has paved her own way in making gay rights her life’s cause.

PARIS FRANCE –Sixteen of the worlds most respect

first_imgPARIS, FRANCE –Sixteen of the world’s most respected and talented grand chefs will come together in Paris to cook under one roof. And when the roof happens to be Le Grand Trianon in the magical Château de Versailles (in the Palace of Versailles), outside Paris, France, then it transforms a memorable event into a momentous occasion. This vision will turn into reality when the first Dinner of the Chefs is held on September 17, 2008.It will undoubtedly be a unique opportunity to experience an evening of epicurean pleasures in the sheer, unadulterated luxury of Marie-Antoinette’s personal retreat, the haven of privacy given to her by Louis XVI in 1774.Only 60 guests are invited to enjoy this ultra-exclusive experience, a banquet of 15 courses in the Salon des Cotelle whose walls will be adorned with fabulous scenes by the eponymous 17th century painter Jean Cotelle.The Dinner of the Chefs will welcome 15 new creations and a selection of the rarest wines. The master chefs enlisted to recreate their finest dishes on the evening read like a “Who’s Who” in the world of haute, cuisine and all are celebrated in the Michelin red book.The net profit of this special event will be donated to the International Foundation for Research on Alzheimer Disease (, chaired by Dr. Olivier de Ladoucette, alongside their Good Will Ambassador Alain Delon.To compliment such sumptuous surroundings, the table will be provided by some of the greatest names in French design. They have secured the support of famous “Maisons des Arts de la Table” to give the best craftsmanship France can provide. Also lending its flair and expertise to the evening is a collaboration of some of the greatest hotels in the world: Le Bristol, The Crillon, Four Seasons Hotel George V, The Meurice, The Plaza Athenee and the Trianon Palace & Spa.On arrival at the airport in Paris, all guests will be taken in their own chauffeur-driven limousines to their luxury hotel and then on to the Château, where they will be greeted by Jean-Jacques Aillagon, the chairperson of the Domaine de Versailles, and Pierre Arizzoli-Clementel, the Managing Director of Museum and Domaine de Versailles. An exclusive visit to the private estate of Queen Marie-Antoinette is then planned before a cocktail reception under the colonnades of the elegant courtyard. Beyond will be a view of the gardens, illuminated by thousands of candles, flickering in the twilight.As an additional special souvenir, ladies are being offered a specially commissioned Sèvres breakfast set—a magnificent replica of Marie-Antoinette’s porcelain mug and saucer. They will also receive an exclusive fragrance of Guerlain, in a monogrammed bottle.For the gentlemen, there will be an exclusive edition monogrammed case containing three very rare wines, a flask of vintage Hennessy Cognac and a lovely magnum of Dom Ruinart—a very special selection made by Andreas Larsson, Best Sommelier of the World 2007. They will also receive a limited edition “Dinner of the Chefs” apron embroidered in golden letters, from the renowned Bragard House.“As the creator of the Dinner of the Chefs I wanted to create something very special with a selection of the most talented chefs, something rare, dedicated to these magicians who have this power of enchanting our palate. Beyond experience, knowledge and knack, there resides in every Chef the soul of a poet where free spirit prevails over pure logic,” said René-Julien Praz, creator and executive producer, Dinner of the Chefs.“The ultimate cultural ambassador, fine cuisine expresses in a universal manner the degree of perfection and refinement attained by a people. It is the very idea that we seek to convey to you through the Dinner of the Chefs. A never-before gastronomic experience, bringing together almost 40 Michelin stars in order to offer you the best works of these creators and, allow you to participate in the most important of all causes: research on Alzheimer Disease.”The Chefs:Yannick Alleno, Chef at Hotel Meurice – Paris: Yannick Alleno is one of those young chefs in their thirties who bring freshness and daring to their cooking. He apprenticed at such renowned hotels as the Lutétia, the Royal Monceau and the Sofitel Porte de Sèvres. The celebrated Escoffier competition opened the doors of Drouant to him. He remained there for five years before taking over at the restaurant of the Hôtel Scribe, thanks to the support of Paul Bocuse. The Bocuse d’Argent firmly in hand and two years of hard work later, he obtained a second Michelin star for the Scribe. Four years later he came to the Meurice, the prestigious restaurant on the rue de Rivioli for which he obtained a second star in 2004 and a third in 2007. After four years at the head of the Meurice, Yannick Alleno is clearly recognized as the new star of his generation. Biffi, Chef of Catering at Potel & Chabot – Paris: Jean-Pierre Biffi was born in an Italian family, at Mirande in the Gers region of France. It was his grandmother, an astounding cook famous for making the local middle class’s mouths water, who gave him the desire to wear the cook’s attire. In 1970, he discovered the wonders of “foie gras” with André Daguin. From 1972 to 1975, he studied in the cookery school of Toulouse. In 1975, he started in Paris at the famous Café de la Paix of the Grand Hotel Intercontinental, followed by the Hotel Bristol aside Jean-Paul Bonin. In 1980, he joined the Crillon Hotel, and for seven years, he was the right arm of the kitchen chef and was awarded the National Trophy of Cuisine during this assignment. In 1987, he became the chef and marketing director of Maxim’s restaurant, and then joined the caterer Potel & Chabot to manage the kitchens as organizer of international caliber receptions (New York, Prague, Budapest, Marrakech, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Venice, Singapore, and Dubai). His aim, beyond the recipe, is to find sources to astonish and surprise, working on the products and the dishes, but also on the staging, table decoration, lighting and music. http://www.poteletchabot.comMichel and Sebastien Bras, Chefs of Restaurant Bras – Laguiole: Michel Bras took his first steps towards becoming a professional cook by tending the stove in his mother’s kitchen at the family run hotel-restaurant, “Lou Mazuc.” Unlike most chefs who undergo an apprenticeship before setting out on their own, Michel was largely self-taught and created his own culinary world by drawing on the native tradition of his beloved Aubrac. Opened in 1992, Michel Bras’ restaurant is granted a three star rating by the Michelin Guide seven years later. Built in a very secluded venue, at the top of a hill, the Bras family estate is ingenuously molded in a wild landscape made of stone, greenery and light. Son Sebastien Bras, 36 years old, is also part of the team. “We get along very well, my father and I,” says Sebastien. “We do not fear or feel any generation gap. What my father did 20 years ago was very avant-garde and still is today, so we have a lot in common. A culinary symphony to be discovered with your five senses.” Fréchon, Chef of Hotel Bristol – Paris: After a studious apprenticeship with Christian Constant at the Crillon Hotel, followed by restaurant Taillevent, Eric Fréchon completed his academic training at restaurant La Tour d’Argent. Originating from Normandy, Eric started his professional career by opening his own gastronomic bistro: La Verrière. This first experience was a success, but he was rapidly noticed and hired by the owners of Hotel Bristol. This is how he arrived at the head of the kitchens of this Palace in 1999, where he settled in perfectly and renewed the image of this great hotel. Attracting considerable attention, he was awarded the famous distinction of “Best Craftsman of France.” Innovative, ingenious and creative, Eric Fréchon conquered celebrity step by step and obtained the famous Michelin stars thanks to his beautifully classic and modern cuisine. The mouth to ear confirms this success story; his style gradually expresses itself through the marriage of great classic French dishes and the most bizarre mixtures. (so he says!) A liberty, an inventiveness and sheer mischief are the distinctive signs of a young chef who has the talent to propose the best products in order to transform as well as sublimate them. Hom, consultant chef to the Oriental Restaurant Group: Born in Arizona, Ken Hom became a brilliant student of art history. Between classes in Chicago, Ken made his cooking debut helping out on weekends at his uncle’s Chinese restaurant. To finance his studies, Ken gave cooking lessons that became so popular he was soon invited to join the famous Culinary Academy where he met some of the great American chefs. When BBC television searched for a Chinese chef to present a new program, Ken applied for the position and was immediately hired. An adept student of the fundamental principals of Yin and Yang, Ken Hom’s cooking is directly inspired by the ancient Far East philosophies that preach the harmony of body and soul. Ken has become a worldwide star and ambassador of contemporary Chinese cuisine.Marc Meneau, Restaurant L’Espérance – Vezelay: Born in Avalon, Marc Meneau entered the Hotellerie School at Strasbourg in the 1960s. He made a lightening debut, earning his first Michelin star in 1972, his second in 1976. Marc Meneau runs “l’Esperance” at Saint Père-sous-Vézelay, a magnificent bourgeois mansion that he bought in his home village, a place where elegance and refinement come together. Bearing the Relais & Château label, l’Esperance boasts two stars in the Michelin Red Guide and a 19/20 rating in Gault et Millau. In 1983 Marc Meneau was elected “Best Chef of the Year.” This child of the region prepares elaborately baroque cuisine, a knowing mixture of Burgundian bourgeois tradition and poetic license that flatters the senses. A man of great culture, he co-authored with Annie Caen, the “Gourmet Museum,” “Monastic Cuisine,” “Cuisine en Fête,” and “Cuisine and Painting.” Michalak, Chef Patisserie at the Plaza Athénée – Paris: The absolute star of pastry, the “Rambo” of chocolate, the “Bruce Lee” of floating islands, the “Casanova” of sugar, the “Wizard of Oz” of cream. He got involved by greediness for custard pies and at the age of 15, decided to become a patisserie. With perseverance, courage and will, he moved on with training courses and odd jobs in the greatest palaces in the world, passing through London, Brussels, Tokyo and New York. But it is in the cradle of refinement and fine Parisian taste that Michalak developed his art, at Fauchon followed by the famous Ladurée house. However, his true luxury is above all his talent. Michalak is a cake genius. While remaining faithful to his vow of simplicity by revisiting the great classics of patisserie, this undisputed artist however tries every single day to surprise us with his desserts where taste and beauty cannot be separated. In 2005, he won the Patisserie World Championship. His kid’s dream to become Superman did not work out, however, this eternal romantic has become the super hero with a white toque at the Plaza Athenée, the most fashionable palace of the City of Lights since 2000. http://www.plaza-athenee-paris.frJean-Louis Nomicos, Chef of Restaurant Lasserre – Paris: Born in Marseille, Jean-Louis Nomicos still remembers those grand Sunday lunches of his youth under the fig trees at his grandparents’ house. At the age of 16, Jean-Louis debuted at the restaurant ‘l’Oursinade.’ Then for five years, he studied under Alain Ducasse at the Hôtel de Paris in Monaco. He moved to Paris and became head chef at La Grande Cascade in the Bois de Boulogne, and in 2001 he took up the relay at the restaurant Lasserre where he is executive chef. The choice of ingredients and their authenticity represent an essential first step for Jean Louis Nomicos who maintains close relations with his suppliers. He insures that his foie gras comes from les Landes, his fish from Carantec, his beef from Salers, his potatoes from Chez Clos, etc. His cuisine, which cleverly plays off the savors of the Mediterranean, is classical haute gastronomy but veritably contemporary. Passard, Restaurant L’Arpège – Paris: Philosopher in the art of observation, Philippe Legendre is the most zen of all chefs and insists on total silence in his kitchen in order to better concentrate. He demands total commitment to the “product” from his co-workers. That’s where things are born, he says. Each month he works with new ingredients with total precision: no room for error or for out-of-season results. If a produce is only at its best for a few days, it won’t stay on his menu any longer than that. By deciding to favor vegetables, even as he arrives at the summit – three stars in the Red Guide – Alain Passard embarks on a new path. Passedat, Chef at Le Petit Nice Passédat – Marseille: Born in 1960, son of Jean-Paul Passedat and grandson of Germain Passedat, cook at the restaurant le Petit Nice since 1917. Le Petit Nice was at the original La Villa Corinthe, perched on the rocks along the seaside, facing the Château d’If and Frioul Islands.

In 1985, at 25 years old, he’s back with his father Jean-Paul in Marseilles (two Michelin stars in 1981) and successor to him. In 1999, Gerald met Ferran Adrià, the molecular cuisine inventor, and became fond of the idea. He gets supplies from the fishermen of Marseilles. His menu is made of 98% of fish and shellfish and 2% of meat, with a fondness for some of forgotten fish such as tub gurnard and red scorpion fish, others modest local fish such as the girelle, saran and mostelle. In 2008, heading 49 employees, he’s been granted with a Michelin third star.çois Piege, Restaurant Les Ambassadeurs Hôtel de Crillon: As a young boy, Jean-François Piège enjoyed snail hunting, mushroom picking and fishing, and started experiencing his taste buds within the marvelous territory of the Rhone valley. At the age of 14, he started with Jacques Manière, one of the inventors of the Nouvelle Cuisine, then he studied at the hotel school “to learn how to enjoy” before working in different restaurants “to learn how to do.” After working in the kitchens of the Elysée Palace, residence of the French president, during his military service, he continued with Alain Ducasse at both the restaurant Louis XV in Monte Carlo and at the Plaza Athenée in Paris. Since February 2004, Jean-François Piège manages a team of 25 persons at the Ambassadeurs, the restaurant of the Hotel Crillon on the Concorde Square. In his cooking book “Côté Crillon, côté maison” published by Flammarion, Jean-François Piège reveals his recipes such as the lobster snack, the boned young pigeon with foie gras, the sea bass with oyster tapioca. Even today, he can open any page of “La France à la Carte” from Gault et Millau and recite the recipe of the praline tart or the shellfish aspic. and Laurent Pourcel, Restaurant le Jardin des Sens – Montpellier: Jacques and Laurent Pourcel, identical twins and sons of wine-growers, decided before rejoining together, to live their passion for cuisine separately, therefore cumulating experience and culinary culture. Laurent Pourcel worked with Michel Bras and Alain Chapel, and Jacques worked with Michel Trama, Marc Meneau and Pierre Gagnaire. In 1988, they opened their restaurant Jardin des Sens after falling in love with a small end-of- the-century abandoned house, only minutes away from the centre of Montpellier. They transformed the decor giving it a resolutely modern atmosphere and sculpted a superb Mediterranean garden. In 1998, Michelin awarded the twins their third star. With the former patisserie of the Jardin des Sens, they created the Bakery of Sweet Savours and the Cuisine Workshop to welcome all cuisine amateurs. They opened the restaurant Senses and Savours in Japan, revived the restaurant Maison Blanche in Paris as well as launched a line of cutlery and table accessories.

Dromolaxia municipality claims area has become ghettoised

first_imgThe municipality of Dromolaxia-Meneou on Tuesday asked for offset benefits to counterbalance the fact that people living within its boundaries cannot develop their properties or businesses, claiming the area has been “ghettoised.”At the House refugee committee, Dromolaxia mayor Kypros Andronikou reiterated a long-standing demand for Larnaca airport to pay the local municipality a business licence fee.Approximately 32 per cent of the airport falls within the municipalities’ boundaries.The mayor said he has discussed the matter with the operators of the airport, who replied that they have a fees agreement directly with the state.A fraction of the parking revenues at the airport would solve the issue, he added.Andronikou complained of double standards: while a refugee running a small business has to pay the local municipality a business license fee, the same does not apply to the airport.Dromolaxia hosts refugee housing estates which, because they lie on Turkish Cypriot land, deprive their occupants of title deeds.Refugee occupants had been granted certificates of leasing under the previous administration of Demetris Christofias.In the absence of title deeds, it was decided that leasing certificates be made available to refugees allowing them to transfer the residence to their heirs. They could also use the certificates to secure bank loans.But according to Andronikou as it stands the certificates are essentially useless, as due to zoning arrangements local residents cannot develop their properties.He said a large tract of land in Meneou adjacent to the airport’s runway has been assigned a zero construction coefficient, and as such is worth “nothing but air.”Moreover, Kyprianou said, because Dromolaxia has been designated as a peri-urban area (urban outskirts) it is unable to tap EU development funds.The refugee residents in the area have become second-class citizens, he asserted.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Pilot greed a reminder of why Cyprus Airways collapsed Georgiades says

first_imgCriticisms surrounding the liquidation process of now defunct Cyprus Airways are a staunch reminder of the mismanagement that ruled the company for years and eventually led to its demise, Finance Minister Harris Georgiades said on Thursday.He was commenting on accusations by former Cyprus Airways employees a day after the liquidation process came to an end, leaving some quarters disgruntled.On Wednesday, 98.6 per cent of 325 former employees of the defunct air carrier, voted in favour of a settlement plan outlining how €11m would be disbursed to creditors.The liquidator Avgoustinos Papathomas said €6.4m would go the state and €4.6m to former employees who were subject to pay-cuts during their tenure at Cyprus Airways. The settlement plan will be submitted to Nicosia district court on January 19 for ratification where any objections can be filed.Responding to criticisms on Thursday, Georgiades said the state had paid former employees “significant compensation when it had to because they were losing their jobs.”The carrier did not have the funds to compensate the former employees as it already owed millions it couldn’t pay back and thus the government stepped in to give the money to those who lost their jobs to help them out and was now receiving the money back as part of the liquidation process.A former pilot of defunct Cyprus Airways Chrysanthos Hadjichrysanthou speaking on Cybc’s morning show however called it “unethical” and said “I don’t know anyone that gives compensation and asks for it back,” while at the same time, President Nicos Anastasiades wrote off a €20m debt football clubs owed to the state.He argued that the €6.4m the state would be receiving as part of the liquidation should instead go to the former staffers.Pilots, who had a separate fund from that of all other former employees “were sorted out just fine” Georgiades said.Their reasoning is that they would have preferred the state had not stepped in to compensate the former employees so that during the liquidation process, the pilots could have received more money, the finance minister added.This was unacceptable and listening to the pilot was reminiscent of the mismanagement that ruled Cyprus Airways for years, Georgiades said.“Thankfully, the closing down of Cyprus Airways caused no problems to our economy. On the contrary, air connectivity has improved, fares have decreased, new airlines began operating and new jobs have been created.”Georgiades also said he was glad that most of the former employees had found jobs in their respective fields.The liquidator had amassed €21.6m in income since the liquidation process began in early 2015. Divestment came to €8m with an additional €2.5 expenses leaving just over €11m to distribute amongst creditors.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

UnheardElizabeth DiasEliana DocktermanOct 21 2016IdeasElizabeth Dias is a TIME correspondent covering politics and religionEliana Dockterman is a staff writer for TIME in New York CityGretchen Carlson is both extraordinary—in her cultural visibility in her multimillion-dollar career in her personal accomplishments—and utterly ordinary When she filed a lawsuit in July alleging sexual harassment during her tenure at Fox News she became part of a disturbing statistic: at least 25% of American women say they have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace according to a 2016 report from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission She also faced an obstacle that blocks an untold lot of them: an arbitration clause in her employment contractRelatedUSA $215 Million Settlement Proposed in Alleged USC Gynecologist AbuseUSA $215 Million Settlement Proposed in Alleged USC Gynecologist AbuseThere is no reliable data on how many Americans have ceded their rights to a court hearing through arbitration clauses; one academic study estimates using projections based on narrow data sets that as many as a quarter of nonunionized American workers may be subject to the restrictions Arbitration clauses are found not only in multimillion-dollar contracts like Carlson’s but also in the most mundane hiring materials—form contracts even employee handbooks—that have been given to employees at Anheuser-Busch or Applebee’s or some editors at TIMECarlson cleverly navigated her own clause: she sued Roger Ailes the co-founder CEO and chairman of Fox not the company itself Her suit alleged that Ailes "unlawfully retaliated against Carlson and sabotaged her career because she refused his sexual advances and complained about severe and pervasive sexual harassment" As soon as the case was public Ailes’ lawyers tried to compel it into arbitration arguing that Carlson had broken the terms of her contract which stipulated that any legal disputes be brought not in court but in arbitration proceedings Ailes denied wrongdoing and he and Carlson agreed on a confidential settlement "As we’ve made clear there’s absolutely no room anywhere at our company for behavior that disrespects women or contributes to an uncomfortable work environment" 21st Century Fox said in a statement "Within hours of the first public complaint raising an issue at Fox News we commenced an investigation and less than two weeks after that investigation began the Chairman and CEO of Fox News departed"This August in response to Carlson’s case Democratic US Senators Richard Blumenthal Al Franken and Dick Durbin wrote to four major arbitration businesses requesting information on employment disputes and cases involving sexual harassment that have been heard in secret by arbitrators Questions included how many sexual-harassment lawsuits have been referred to binding arbitration through their organizations and how many cases involved confidentiality clauses similar to Carlson’s regardless of the cause of action Three of the four arbitration organizations responded The American Arbitration Association one of the largest businesses (and a not-for-profit) noted that its data was not comprehensive and added that only 4% of employment-plan cases in 2014 involved sexual-harassment issues For Blumenthal that information was not adequateREAD: Gretchen Carlson’s Next Fight"The responses give us no informative or comprehensive view of how prevalent the problem is" he says "It could be very substantial with illegal or dangerous activity going unreported or underreported"Last year Franken reintroduced the Arbitration Fairness Act which would invalidate current arbitration clauses in employment consumer civil rights and antitrust claims Under this measure a claimant alleging sexual harassment who is subject to an arbitration mandate could not be forced to resolve the dispute that way This year Senator Patrick Leahy followed it up with the Restoring Statutory Rights Act which says no arbitration agreement can make you waive a statutory right"Clearly these clauses can be misused and silence can be a means for abusers to conceal misconduct" says Blumenthal who refers to Carlson’s case as a teaching moment for the nation "If Ms Carlson had adhered strictly to the terms of her employment contract her case would have remained a secret forever"Arbitration clauses are easy to miss—you probably have agreed to one at some point whether at your job or at your bank They can be just a few short words but their impact is vast These clauses push disputes between parties to a system in which an arbitrator (sometimes a retired judge) is hired to adjudicate the matter Some contracts prohibit claimants from speaking about the claims which in harassment cases could leave other victims in the dark And you don’t necessarily have to sign on a dotted line to agree to one—Netflix subscribers agree to arbitration in the terms of use before picking a movie; workers at Macy’s and Raymour & Flanigan have sued over arbitration clauses that the companies said they agreed to by virtue of accepting employment at the company Even at-will employees can be compelled into arbitration through clauses in employee materials"You don’t necessarily have to have signed anything to be bound by it" says Katherine Stone a law professor at UCLA "It might just be in the materials that were given to you when you took the job the same materials that told you where your parking space is"Research by Stone and Cornell law professor Alexander Colvin shows that payouts in arbitration are much smaller than the damages plaintiffs might receive in court—so small that lawyers are reluctant to take the cases Carlson’s reported $20 million settlement is far more than most could hope to win—again because of the confidentiality statistics are hard to come by but a 2007 Chicago-wide survey put median sexual-harassment settlements at roughly $30000; a national study from a researcher at Columbia University in 2006 found employees who take their cases to trial win on average $217000RelatedLawI Was a Sex-Crimes Prosecutor Here’s Why ‘He Said She Said’ Is a MythLawI Was a Sex-Crimes Prosecutor Here’s Why ‘He Said She Said’ Is a Myth"Mandatory arbitration clauses in negotiating away the civil rights of an individual are just a bad idea" says Anita Hill now an antidiscrimination professor at Brandeis University "What we’re talking about here with harassment is a civil rights violation Our policy is driven from the point of view of the people the men who are more powerful and engaging in abusive behavior Women are skeptical coming forward because they don’t trust the procedures"In 1991 Hill told a Senate committee that Clarence Thomas—the man they were considering confirming to the Supreme Court who had been her former boss including at the EEOC—had asked her "Who has put pubic hair on my Coke" Thomas was of course confirmed but Hill’s testimony marked a watershed moment for sexual-harassment awareness: the following year reports of sexual harassment filed with the EEOC shot up from 3349 to 5607Yet it may actually be getting harder for employees to take sexual-harassment complaints to court "Anecdotally speaking the use of arbitration agreements from our perspective is increasing" says Peggy Mastroianni legal counsel at the EEOC Many women rationalize that it’s not worth the risk to bring cases forward "The biggest problem in many of these cases is fear of retaliation fear of more harassment" says Mastroianni "If they leave their company usually they want to continue working in the same industry but they fear they’ll be seen as litigious or difficult" As Jean Sternlight director of the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution at the University of Nevada Las Vegas points out privacy is one benefit of arbitration: an employee dealing with sexual harassment "might prefer to have it handled in a private way and arbitration could give them that privacy"Those who do want to file complaints face a series of legal hurdles Eighty-three percent of those who file sexual-harassment claims with the EEOC are women some of whom presumably want not only to be free of it and compensated but also to fundamentally change the place where they work Employers can be liable for quid pro quo sexual harassment perpetrated by supervisors and for supervisors or co-workers who create a hostile work environment—but a 2013 Supreme Court decision narrowed the definition of supervisor to someone who can hire fire or significantly change the responsibilities of the person being harassed"When you take a job you don’t think you’re going to end up suing your employer" says Stone "Any employer that is big enough will be advised to put an arbitration clause into their employment materials and employees will not be able to bring a class-action suit It’d basically be malpractice not to advise that""The EEOC’s stance has always been that mandatory arbitration of employment discrimination is bad: the secrecy the lack of precedent" says the EEOC’s Mastroianni "We litigated this issue in a number of cases that we lost"The arbitration system has expanded in scope over the past decade for what many argue are good reasons Corporations often maintain that circumventing court systems reduces litigation costs allows more-limited discovery and yields a swifter result for both parties "Most of the controversy in these employment cases often have to do with does the employee have a choice" says Chris Poole CEO of the arbitration company JAMS "We don’t really have a dog in that fight All we can do is try to do everything to level the playing field" That includes asking the employer to pay the bulk of the cost of arbitration and allowing the employee to help choose the arbitrator "Our entire business depends on neutrality" he adds "It’s our religion"When asked about Ailes’ role in the clause in Carlson’s contract Susan Estrich a lawyer for Ailes says he "does not get into the weeds of contracts" Arbitration clauses she adds "have become increasingly standard not just in employment contracts but across the board My gynecologist was the last of my doctors to require them in order to keep his insurance rates from skyrocketing The reason doesn’t have to do with sexual harassment and secrecy; it’s because litigation is so expensive that no one can afford it and it drives insurance costs through the roof"RelatedLawWhy Trump Couldn’t Really Stop the Mueller Investigation—Even if He Fired RosensteinLawWhy Trump Couldn’t Really Stop the Mueller Investigation—Even if He Fired RosensteinEmployers have also seen arbitration as a way to cut down on class-action and employment disputes State and federal rulings are mixed The Supreme Court provided the means for businesses to prevent class-action suits Critics say the attempt to stop arbitration’s use is a move in support of trial lawyers who have been large Democratic supporters "Arbitration denies personal-injury lawyers opportunities to score even more giant contingency fees" American Tort Reform Association spokesman Darren McKinney says "For years those lawyers have used sympathetic groups—including the elderly service veterans and crime victims—to press lawmakers for statutory exceptions to the Federal Arbitration Act Having largely failed with Congress the lawsuit industry has more recently turned its lobbying focus to regulatory agencies and certain state legislatures where its reliably generous campaign contributions seem to be more appreciated"But the trend of moving cases into confidential arbitration cases has troubled many Carlson Leahy and Blumenthal are part of a tide The Obama Administration has tried to curb the arbitration boom without Congress Last month a Department of Health and Human Services agency barred nursing homes that receive federal funding from mandating that residents resolve disputes in arbitration In May the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) proposed a rule to prevent banks and credit-card companies from using arbitration clauses with consumers In June the Department of Education proposed to protect students from arbitration clauses buried in enrollment agreementsOn the presidential campaign trail Hillary Clinton has attacked the use of arbitration clauses She supported the CFPB’s proposed rule in May In early October Clinton promised to carry on the Obama Administration’s efforts and order agencies "to curb the overuse of harmful forced-arbitration clauses" Donald Trump has been quiet on the issue Employment contracts for Trump’s campaign have included binding arbitration clauses that can turn any disputes over to the American Arbitration Association instead of a court system A spokesperson for the Clinton campaign said that Clinton campaign contracts do not include arbitration clauses or referencesEven if Clinton wins in November Democrats will likely not be able to hold a hearing on arbitration unless they win back the Senate and even then Republicans are likely to continue to control the House Change outside of Congress is also difficult given federal case-law trends—the change for nursing homes came after Leahy held regular hearings on the use of arbitration clauses when he chaired the Senate Judiciary CommitteeBut Blumenthal and his colleagues are not backing down "Gretchen Carlson is woman of great courage and moral fiber and personal strength and hopefully her example will help support legislation to protect others" he saysThe conversation around harassment sexual assault and sexism has gone from a whisper to a roar—on campuses where women have persuaded the White House to investigate Title IX mishandlings in war zones where servicewomen appealed to Senators for a new process to adjudicate cases of rape and on social media where campaigns like the one started by Kelly Oxford have spurred women to share their stories of assault and harassmentBut Carlson’s story and the systemic problems it highlights underscores the challenges women still face "I have a hard time reconciling the current climate for women with the progress we’ve tried to make But if people thought this was going to be resolved in 25 years of talking about sexual harassment that’s not going to happen" says Hill "These things are deeply embedded in our brains and baked into the way we do things"New satellite images released by NATO on Thursday show Russian troops massed on the Ukrainian border seemingly on a war footing Speaking in the Czech Republic NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen trashed Russias claims that the troops were on an exercise and criticized Moscow for "stirring up ethnic tensions in eastern Ukraine and provoking unrest" "As I speak some 40000 Russian troops are massed along Ukraines borders" he said "Not training but ready for combat" Meanwhile pro-Russian activists are still defying a Ukrainian ultimatum to vacate state buildings they have occupied in the eastern cities of Donetsk and Luhansk Acting Ukrainian President Oleksandr Turchynov

(APC) was using the recently released looters’ list to divert “public discourse from the raging questions on their numerous scandals manifest sleazes and overall failures in governance” A statement by PDP’s spokesperson Kola Ologbondiyan said the nation had now seen that the Federal Government had no case against the PDP as the looters’ lists only had individuals who were not indicted or convicted for corruption” The statement reads “It is now a notorious fact that the whole essence of the flimsy and contemptible lists was to cause public misperception ‘change the topic’ and divert international and national discourse from various serious issues including; “The parlous state of the nation’s economy caused by President Muhammadu Buhari’s misrule for which Nigerians are now resorting to vices including slavery and suicide as options “The intensive global vote of no confidence on President Buhari-led APC-government particularly on its painful anti-people policies as presented in damning verdicts by international figures the latest being the world renowned Bill Gates “The vote of no confidence on the Buhari administration by eminent statesmen including former President Olusegun Obasanjo former military President Ibrahim Babangida and former minister of defence and ex-chief of army staff Gen Theophilus Danjuma who also indicted this administration of

administration and almost resorted to near mob action “These are issues that cannot be swept under the carpet using any ploy whatsoever “While we still challenge the APC to name any members of the
