My bio on Grindr read: “Be trans friendly. Send face to chat.”It was difficult to be on a gay hookup app as a trans woman. But I knew there were straight men on Grindr who hungered for a woman like me. One night I was up late working when I received a Grindr message from him, a selfie. Amid his light brown hair, two-day scruff and meek gaze, his lacrosse T-shirt stood out to me the most.

Democratic candidate for New York City Mayor Maya Wiley speaks to voters and media while campaigning at the Co-op City housing complex in the Bronx borough of New York City, New York, U.S., June 7, 2021. REUTERS/Mike Segar/File PhotoFor months, a trio of liberal Democratic candidates in New York City's mayoral race has vied for the mantle of progressive standard-bearer in a crowded field. "New York is not a progressive city," said Christina Greer, a political science professor at Fordham University. "We know there are a lot of Democratic voters who call themselves progressive and support progressive values but think AOC is a little too far left." "She's clearly the progressive candidate that can win in this race," said Gabby Seay, the political director for the union, which represents healthcare workers.

But while the number of newborns fell across China, the official birth rate remained comparatively high in the western region of Xinjiang. Between 2017 and 2018, birth rates in Xinjiang dropped by a third, from 15.8 per 1,000 people to 10.7 per 1,000 people. From that year, minority regions began a "special campaign to control birth control violations." State-run media blamed Xinjiang's previously high birth rates on religious extremism , and painted declining fertility as a victory for women's rights. Jobs and surveillanceRetaining control over Xinjiang birth rates is not the only reason for the Chinese government's retention of three-child limits on families.

Andrew Yang, democratic candidate for mayor of New York City, speaks during a campaign appearance at City Hall Park in New York City, U.S., May 24, 2021. The city, Yang said on Thursday, "is failing us. But New York's mayoral contest suggests a different political reality is taking hold among Democrats as urban areas nationwide dig out from the coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic triggered massive job losses, left streets deserted, strained local budgets and contributed to a national rise in violent crime. This is a harbinger of what’s to come,” said Douglas Schoen, a Democratic pollster and longtime adviser to former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Similar to his presidential campaign, Yang has proposed a number of innovations, including a basic income of $2,000 a year to 500,000 poor residents. “To move forward, we cannot continue being derailed by the dangerous and violent behavior in our city,” Adams told reporters on Monday in Manhattan. “People aren’t going to come back to work on mass transit if they’re going to get mugged,” said Kathryn Wylde, who heads the Partnership for New York City, a prominent business organization.

Bernie Madoff exits federal court March 10, 2009, in New York. The bulk of his investors were institutions and wealthy individuals — clients who, in the eyes of regulators, are thought to be sophisticated, Roper said. Lessons from the 'Madoff bomb'However, just because these red flags aren't initially present doesn't mean consumers should let their guard down. "Where you custodied your assets simply wasn't a topic that anyone really considered, until the Madoff bomb hit," Stoltmann said. Consistently stable returns for investments other than, say, government bonds are also another lesson of the Madoff scandal, he added.

Just before she received her second Pfizer vaccine on April 2, Bella Sabino said she couldn't scroll through TikTok without seeing a slew of videos declaring Pfizer the "hot vaccine." "People were making it into a really fun joke ... you know, Johnson and Johnson versus Pfizer versus Moderna," said Sabino, 19, who attends Fordham University in New York. "Um, only hot people get the Pfizer vaccine," the popular audio, recorded by TikTok user "idrinkurmilkshake" announces. Among the first such trends is vaccine rivalries. Many joked that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was the "Walmart vaccine" because its efficacy was lower than that of Pfizer or Moderna, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Mr. Chauvin’s lawyer has yet to present his witnesses or introduce medical evidence that experts say holds his best hope for an acquittal. But he was likely able to steadily make some dents in the prosecution’s case over the first week of testimony, legal observers said. “We’ve had some very emotional testimony,” said Cheryl Bader, a criminal law professor at Fordham University and former federal prosecutor. “The judge has allowed witnesses to talk about how they felt, and talk about the raw experience they had and their guilt over this death. That was particularly powerful.”Eric Nelson, Mr. Chauvin’s defense attorney, pushed back against some witness accounts in his cross-examination, with a low-key and deliberate manner.

G. Gordon Liddy, the political operative who supervised the Watergate burglary, which brought down President Richard Nixon, died Tuesday, his family said. Money and other links would lead from the burglars to others, including Liddy, a former FBI agent, and to the White House. Twenty-five people went to prison as a result of the botched break-in, including Hunt. During his time in prison, Liddy spent more than 100 days in solitary confinement. Liddy's wife, Frances Purcell Liddy, died in 2010.

FILE PHOTO: Radio show host G. Gordon Liddy arrives for the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner in Washington, U.S., April 21, 2007. Liddy, born George Gordon Battle Liddy, was one of the notorious White House “plumbers” whose job it was to plug leaks to the media in the Nixon administration. Liddy and Hunt came up with the plan to get into the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate hotel-office complex in Washington as Nixon was seeking re-election in 1972. After his team was caught, Liddy would be convicted of conspiracy, burglary and wiretapping for the Watergate and Ellsberg break-ins.

Edison profited from his patents, but he was also exposed to the dark side of the patent system. While the patent system is designed to spur innovation like Edison's, it also hampers it. Economic research suggests that these litigation costs and license fees burden innovative firms to such a degree that on balance the patent system discourages innovation. How to fix the systemInventors who come up with new chemicals, including pharmaceuticals, tend to benefit from the patent system. The patent system can be improved to deliver a net gain to all inventors even without being drastically reworked.

Construction of a Trump library could wind up being a major battleground over the legacy of the twice-impeached president. It's unclear whether either university Trump attended would want to house a Trump library. President John Kennedy picked a spot for his presidential library near Harvard, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a month before his assassination. Richard Nixon's presidential library in Yorba Linda, California, was at the center of a historical brawl over the Watergate scandal. Language in the Presidential Records Act "places the responsibility for the custody and management of incumbent Presidential records with the President."

Why American cities have so many pigeons
  + stars: | 2021-01-11 | by ( Benji Jones | Steve Cameron | ) www.businessinsider.com + 0.00   time to read: +5 min
Pigeons are a staple of American cities, yet these birds are actually native to North Africa, the Middle East, and Europe. Europeans brought pigeons to North America in the 1600s, likely as a source of food, and the birds then escaped. While pigeons are clearly at home in American cities like New York, they're actually native to seaside cliffs halfway around the world, in North Africa, the Middle East, and Europe, where we domesticated them 5,000 years ago. Narrator: So how many pigeons live in cities anyway? But here's the thing: As long as we have thriving cities, pigeons will live in them.

The only guests in the 11-bedroom property, which opened in January as part of the Inns of Aurora, a resort in New York’s Finger Lakes region, are Mr. Samenuk’s nearest and dearest: his mother, three siblings and their families, including two children, 3 and 4, and two Labrador retrievers. The group also invited some in-laws to join them for a private dinner and backyard s’mores on New Year’s Eve. “It’s just going to be us — no one else will be there,” said Mr. Samenuk, 21, a model and Fordham University student who lives in New York City. “I feel like it’ll be our little home away from home.”

Mr. McCarrick was a legendary fund-raiser and a charming, avuncular presence — but those defenses exist in all kinds of contexts. Why does this particular sort of abuse and neglect keep happening in the Catholic Church specifically? In 1951, while a student at Fordham University, the promising young Mr. McCarrick published a feature in The Fordham Monthly, describing a spiritual journey to a Carthusian monastery in the Swiss Alps. He pursued the two as one, and was rewarded with a luminous career in the Roman Catholic Church, where countless opportunities to halt his predations were overlooked, declined, outweighed by fleeting fixations. If sacrifices had to be made in the course of serving the Lord, Mr. McCarrick and his many enablers made certain they were human ones.
