>Koori and ethnic community leaders in Shepparton will meet this week to begin to resolve racial tensions that have triggered a spate of violent incidents at the town’s newly merged secondary college and left some parents afraid to send their children back to school.

>The multicultural school of more than 2000 students is also reckoning with a leaked report, commissioned by Victoria’s Department of Education and Training, that identified a culture of “systemic racism” among its exclusively white teaching staff.

>Greater Shepparton Secondary College acting executive principal Barbara O’Brien addressed the report’s “confronting” findings in a note to staff at the weekend, telling them the school would work with ethnic and Indigenous community leaders to create a more “culturally safe and inclusive environment”.

>Ms O’Brien has also written to parents, pleading with them not to inflame tensions or spread misinformation on social media, following a fight between a large number of students at the school’s Wanganui campus on February 26.

>One boy was taken to hospital with head injuries after that fight and a 15-year-old and an 18-year-old were later arrested by police. Students involved in the affray were also suspended.

>Formed last year from the merger of four high schools, Greater Shepparton Secondary College has almost 600 students from multicultural or Aboriginal backgrounds.

>The school’s students are currently spread across three campuses, but will move next year to a new $121 million campus being built on the site of the former Shepparton High School, which was closed in 2019.

>Colleen Jones, a member of community group Greater Shepparton Voice 4 Choice, which opposes the new school, said the merger had denied families choice about their school.

There is a new orientation being added to the lgbtq+ movement, superstraight. Superstraight individuals are only attracted to cis members members of the opposite sex. Trannies are getting incredibly mad at this new orientation because they feel entitled to have sex with superstraight people. There are other groups showing up too like superlesbians, who are women who are only sexually attracted to cis woman. One twitter user, cited in the above story, says superstraight people are homophobes for not having sex with trannies, in the same way a white woman is racist if she doesn't fuck black men.

More than two years after a group of residents from a northern California city first started receiving monthly cash payments with no-strings attached, the results of the public policy experiment are in: guaranteed basic income — designed to create an income floor — works, according to an analysis of results from the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration (SEED).

From February 2019 to February 2021, as part of a hallmark initiative from former Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs and funded by philanthropic donors, 125 Stocktonians with a median income of $46,000 a year received $500 per month through a prepaid debit card — additional income they could spend however they wanted.

Researchers found that compared to a control group, those Stockton residents who received regular payments experienced less income volatility each month, were more able to secure full-time employment, were better parents and partners, and even saw improvements in their health and overall well-being. In other words, a simple monthly stipend led to upward economic mobility.

China makes anal swab Covid tests compulsory for foreign arrivals

No.801590 ViewReplyOriginalReport
China has made anal swab tests for the coronavirus mandatory for almost all international arrivals, deepening a row with other countries over a practice many have described as humiliating.

The Japanese government has already raised concern about its citizens being subjected to the “undignified” procedure while American diplomats have also complained. Katsunobu Kato, Japan’s chief cabinet secretary, said it would ask China to alter its testing regimen after some Japanese travellers reported suffering “psychological pain” from the invasive procedure.

As a possible compromise Lu Hongzhou, a Shanghai-based doctor, told China’s state media that the anal swab could be substituted with a stool sample. South Korea appears to have accepted that offer and Japan is also understood to be in talks about a deal that would allow its citizens to avoid a test that involves the 2-3cm insertion of a saline-soaked cotton swab, which is then checked for the virus.

China says that the anal swab provides a higher degree of accuracy than most established Covid-19 testing protocols. The expansion of the swab test to airports that now include the hubs of Beijing and Shanghai is part of more sweeping “scientific adjustments” to China’s pandemic-control measures, according to the government.

In Beijing, a Chinese man who returned to the country told state media that he was required to take a nasal or throat swab test on his third and seventh days of a three-week quarantine. Then on the 14th and 21st day, authorities performed the anal swab test and collected samples from his room to test for the virus.

The guy never even graduated from high school, how on earth does he think he nows better than to get vaccinated when every single public figure says to get vaccinated. President Trump made producing the vaccine swiftly the central focus of his last year in office, Biden endorses the vaccine, Fauci endorses the vaccine, CNN & all the rest of the major media outlets say the vaccine is good, but this uneducated physical laborer thinks he knows more about medicine than them.

UK royals absorb shock of revealing Harry, Meghan interview

LONDON (AP) — Britain and its royal family absorbed the tremors Monday from a sensational television interview with Prince Harry and Meghan, in which the couple said they encountered racist attitudes and a lack of support that drove the duchess to thoughts of suicide.In a two-hour soul-baring interview by Oprah Winfrey, the couple painted a deeply unflattering picture of life inside the royal household, depicting a cold, uncaring institution that they had to flee to save their lives.Meghan told Winfrey that at one point “I just didn’t want to be alive anymore.” She said she sought help through the palace’s human resources department but was told there was nothing it could do.Meghan, 39, admitted that she was naive at the start of her relationship with Harry and unprepared for the strictures of royal life.
The former television star, who is biracial, said that when she was pregnant with son, Archie, there were “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.” Harry confirmed the conversation, saying: “I was a bit shocked.” He said he would not reveal who made the comment, though Winfrey said he told her it was not either of his grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II or her husband, Prince Philip.

US Domestic Terrorist groups draws members from military and police, website leak shows

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/mar/03/us-militia-membership-military-police-american-patriot-three-percenter-website-leak

A Guardian investigation of a website leak from the American Patriots Three Percent shows the anti-government militia group has recruited a network across the US that includes current and former military members, police and border patrol agents.

But the leak also demonstrates how the radical group has recruited from a broad swath of Americans, not just military and law enforcement. Members include men and women, of ages ranging from their 20s to their 70s, doing jobs from medical physics to dental hygiene and living in all parts of the country.

Experts say the revelations of the broad scope of the movement’s membership shows the mainstreaming of the radical politics of militia and so-called “Patriot Movement” groups during the Trump era and beyond.

There has been a particular focus on the militia movement after the 6 January attack on the Capitol in Washington DC, in which a rampaging pro-Trump mob included militia members and others from far-right organizations.

According to members who spoke to the Guardian, the website from which the list was leaked was set up by national leaders of Patriot Movement group, which is affiliated with the broader Three Percenter movement.

Names, phone numbers and even photographs of members were obtained by activists who then posted the data to an internet archiving site, and the Guardian cross-referenced these with public records and other published materials.

One of the activists who discovered the leak, whose name has been withheld due to safety concerns, said that the WordPress site’s poorly configured membership plugin left those details exposed to public view. Additional materials seen by the Guardian confirm that claim and show that the materials were obtained by a simple search technique.

Tale Old and New as Another Royal Wife Breaks Free

No.804192 ViewReplyOriginalReport
tl;dr: Harry is practically fucking his mom.
>A quarter-century after Princess Diana broke her silence about life among the British royals, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, did the same. Their stories were remarkably similar.

>Anyone who remembers the funeral of Diana, the Princess of Wales, in 1997 can't help being haunted by the wrenching sight of her two young sons, Princes William and Harry, walking slowly behind her coffin as it made its way to Westminster Abbey. Their hands were clasped in front; their heads were bowed. Harry looked so small in his suit.

>That image has reverberated down the years, a ghostly reminder of the princes' traumatic childhood, and it hovered again in the background as Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, spoke to Oprah Winfrey on Sunday night.

>While the British tabloids like to cast Meghan in the villainous role of the Duchess of Windsor - the American divorcêe who lured away their king in 1936 and lived with him in bitter exile, causing an irreparable family rift - Harry and Meghan seem determined to position her instead as a latter-day Diana, a woman mistreated by her in-laws, more sinned against than sinning.

>Harry has often spoken with anguish and bitterness about what happened to Diana all those years ago when she was cast out of the royal family after her divorce from Prince Charles and later died in a car wreck in a Parisian underpass, the paparazzi in hot pursuit. He raised the subject again on Sunday, drawing parallels between the experiences of his mother and his wife and saying, of Diana, that he has "felt her presence through this whole process."
