Eugenics? Project Prevention Pays Drug Addicts $300 to Get Sterilized

Image
Project Prevention is raising eyebrows and controversy by offering drug addicts $300 to either undergo sterilization or use a form of long-term birth control.

Project Prevention has paid a total of 4,077 people (including 65 men) to get a tubal ligation (tube-tying), an IUD, implanon (a hormonal contraceptive that is implanted), Depro-Provera (an injection that lasts three months) or (for men) a vasectomy.

Based in North Carolina, Project Prevention hangs posters in nationwide in homeless shelters, methadone clinics, AA and NA meeting rooms, and near needle exchange programs. The posters say: "Don't let a pregnancy ruin your drug habit." and "She has her daddy's eyes ... and her mommy's heroin addiction."

Infrastructure is Crumbling While US Congress Blathers: Bridges, Tunnels and Railroads Structurally Deficient

Congressmen don't always see eye-to-eye when it comes to many issues and earlier this week Congress took up a transportation bill that many critics believe won't go anywhere. Across America there are many roads and bridges that are in need of repair, so why can't Congress come to terms with improving America's infrastructure? Wilmer J. Leon, political science professor at Howard University, helps us answer some of these questions.

Profit Motive? Big Psychiatry Invents and Redefines Mental Illnesses

Image
Unlike in conventional medicine where objective diagnoses and treatments are made based on observable biological evidence, psychiatrists get together every so often to decide what should or should not be considered a "mental illness." And they do not always agree, as evidenced by the more than 13,000 professionals from around the world who recently signed an open letter demanding that the upcoming edition of the psychiatry industry's "diagnostic manual" be put on hold and reconsidered.

As the elite of the nation's psychiatric establishment work in the shadows to fully revise the highly controversial handbook labeling various behaviors and emotional states as "illnesses," experts across the board are crying foul. A handful of new potential mental disorders and the revised definitions for others have caused a particularly fierce uproar among some psychiatrists and mental health professionals. At least 25,000 comments have already been submitted about the proposals.

Fertility Firm Targets Financially Vulnerable College Students

Image

Read all about it: The leaflet from Altrui that was distributed to Cambridge University students
Thousands of Cambridge students have been targeted by a firm offering up to £750 to egg donors.

Leaflets were stuck in their university pigeonholes, making an emotional plea to help a couple unable to have children.

It said: 'We are looking for a real-life angel to be our egg donor.'

The development appears to be a result of an increase in the amount of 'compensation' that can be given to donors, and may confirm fears of a rise in 'egg brokers' profiting from dealing in human lives.

The targeting of elite students also raises concerns about attempts to create 'superbabies'.

Last night critics warned that young women are often unaware of the risks of egg donation, and a fertility expert said the firm's tactics were 'unacceptable'. Donors have to take drugs to stimulate egg production, and complications may cause death in rare cases.

Brevard Mother Killed Her Four Children, Then Herself: Deputies


US, Florida - The unmistakable sound of gunfire stirred the neighbors early Tuesday. Moments later, there was a knock at the front door.

They opened it to find three children from next door - at least one of them shot and wounded, authorities said. The neighbors called 911, grabbed a towel and tried to attend to the kids.

Then, they told deputies later, a calm voice in the darkness summoned the three children back to their home on Bright Avenue in Port St. John. It was their mother, 33-year-old Tonya Thomas.

They kids walked back obediently. And once inside, Thomas shot and killed them.

Brevard County Sheriff's deputies were just arriving at 4:54 a.m. Tuesday when they heard the shots that ended the lives of Joel, Jazlin and Jaxs Johnson. They were 12, 13 and 15.

Their oldest sibling, 17-year-old Pebbles Johnson, was stretched out on the front yard motionless when deputies arrived. They drove onto the lawn and loaded her into the back of a deputy's cruiser, but by the time they could get her to paramedics waiting nearby, she was dead.

Greek leftwing refuses to bow to old order: fresh elections called for June

Image
Greece has been plunged into further political instability after party leaders failed to agree on the formation of a national unity government that could steer the insolvent country through its worst crisis in modern times.

Nine days after inconclusive elections, the leaders announced they had been unable to forge the necessary consensus to create a coalition during emergency talks on Tuesday led by the president, Karolos Papoulias.

The collapse of talks, after a week of abortive attempts by individual leaders to form an administration, sent global financial markets diving.

Attributing the breakdown to "petty party interests", Evangelos Venizelos, who heads the socialist Pasok party, said the only way out of the impasse was to hold fresh elections next month.

The new poll is expected to be announced on Wednesday and will take place on 10 or 17 June, officials said.

A caretaker government will replace the outgoing left-right coalition, led by the technocrat banker Lucas Papademos, as the nation prepares for another round of election campaigning.

"Unfortunately the country is being led again to elections ... under very bad conditions," said Venizelos, adding that he hoped the next decision of Greek voters would be "more mature".

What? Anders Breivik trial: man sets himself on fire outside court


A man is in hospital with serious injuries after setting himself on fire outside the Oslo courthouse where Anders Behring Breivik is standing trial for mass murder and terrorism.

Police say the man was seen pouring liquid over himself before igniting the liquid and trying to gain access to the court building.

He was stopped by security officials when he reached the temporary security tent set up to scan everyone entering the building during the 10-week trial.

A video posted on the website of the daily newspaper VG showed a man running towards the tent with his black hat on fire, shouting after dousing himself with liquid from a bottle. He is wrestled to the ground by armed security officers who stamped out the flames.

Newly sworn in French President Francois Hollande has been delayed in his journey to Berlin for key talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel after his plane was hit by lightning.

The plane was forced to turn back to Paris. Mr Hollande is now on a second plane and is expected to arrive in Berlin 90 minutes late, at 19:30 GMT.

During his inauguration speech, Mr Hollande appealed for "a compromise" over the German-led focus on austerity.

He called for an emphasis on "growth".

"The plane could have been hit by lightning," a presidential spokesman told the AFP news agency.

"For security reasons, it turned back. At this moment, the president is again en route."

No-one on board was hurt.

Two riot police officers tackle a demonstrator Friday, May 4, 2012 in Victoriaville, Quebec. Provincial police say a riot in small-town Quebec last week was the most violent protest they've seen in more than a decade and insist their response was a measured one.
Canada - A tense standoff has ended at Collège Lionel-Groulx in Sainte-Thérèse, Que., this morning, after provincial police tactical officers moved in on a group of students, teachers and parents blocking the school's entrance.

The protest was declared illegal at around 8:30 a.m. ET and protesters were told to disperse.

Authorities were trying to enforce a court injunction allowing some students to return to class. Similar scenes have played out at colleges across Quebec in the past few weeks.

The tactical officers began moving in on the group just after 9 a.m., pulling people out from the mass of demonstrators and arresting them. Tear gas was also fired.

Students flashed peace signs at officers as the group was forced from the entrance, and pushed back across the property by the advancing line of police.

Quebec's Education Minister Resigns Amid Student Crisis; Liberal Majority Narrows

Quebec Education Minister Line Beauchamp announces her resignation as Premier Jean Charest looks on Monday, May 14, 2012 in Quebec city.
Canada - Quebec's education minister and deputy premier resigned from politics Monday in a bombshell announcement that came amid months of student-related unrest.

Education Minister Line Beauchamp said she was not resigning from her dual roles because of violence and intimidation related to the student strikes this spring.

Making the announcement at a news conference alongside the premier, Beauchamp said she was actually leaving because she didn't feel like she was helping to solve the problem.

"I am not giving up in the face of vandalism and civil disobedience," said Beauchamp, who will resign her Montreal-area seat.

"I am resigning because I no longer believe I'm part of the solution."

The move leaves Premier Jean Charest with a wafer-thin majority in the legislature - where the Liberals hold 63 seats, the opposition and Independents hold 59, and there are three vacancies.
