How the First LGBTQ Mariachi Became an Outlet for Advocacy
What social power does music have? Where does that power come from?
Mariachi musicians Carlos Samaniego and Natalia Melendez found out the hard way—first through discrimination, ridicule and professional blackballing among their musician peers, then via the challenging path of advocating for the acceptance of gay, lesbian and transgender people in the mariachi world.

‘There’s so much to be outraged by everyday with regards to this administration – unless you are really paying attention and follow specific news feeds, the policy changes which negatively effecting the LGBTQ community go unnoticed.’
Ron finally added: ‘Many people, straight or gay, are unaware of the steady dismantling of our rights and protections. I hope through this project raises some awareness.’

Dwayne Johnson Lets His Daughter Paint His Nails, 'Cause He Has "Papa Bear Priorities"
Dwayne Johnson is a busy man, but that doesn't stop him from making time for his three daughters. The 46-year-old actor recently shared a photo on Instagram, from when he was on the way out the door for work and his 2-year-old daughter Jasmine insisted he "really needed" his nails painted. Dwayne, ever the dutiful dad, couldn't say no when she looked up at him with "her mama's gorgeous blue eyes." Aw!
New York Schools To Begin Mental Health Education Classes
At the top of July 2018, New York State (NYS) required public schools to implement a mental health segment within the curriculum. With the school year now underway, the program will take effect and aim to nurture children’s perception and experience with mental health.
While the learning plan aims to educate young students, it’ll also serve as a learning tool for teachers. At the top of the year, when the mandate was first announced, Glenn Liebman, CEO of NYS Mental Health Association, said to News10, “We’re not looking to be psychiatrists. We don’t want teachers to be clinicians or anything like that. We’re looking for them to have a basic understanding about mental health issues, about signs and symptoms.”

Humans have been messing with the climate for thousands of years
Thousands of years ago, ancient farmers grew oats, corn and wheat, just as they do today. They also cultivated rice and raised livestock. But a millennia ago, they cleared much more land than modern day farmers do, despite having fewer people to feed. That’s because farming was far less efficient. Mechanized harvesters didn’t exist, and growers had yet to develop crops that could be planted in tightly packed rows, yielding more food from less space.
The scientists used a computerized climate model to simulate the climate nearly 777,000 years ago. The climate back then looked more or less what the climate today would look like if not for the warming caused by carbon pollution from ancient farming and modern industrialization, he said. This climate model offered higher resolution than previous models used by the team.
Former Writer Saw Bert And Ernie As 'Loving Couple,' Sesame Workshop Disagrees
New life was breathed into a perennial debate this week, when a former Sesame Street writer revealed that not only did he consider beloved characters Bert and Ernie to be a gay couple, but he used his own relationship as creative inspiration.
On Sunday, Queerty published an interview with Mark Saltzman, who worked on the show in the 1980s and 90s, asking him if he thought of Bert and Ernie as a gay couple.
"I always felt that without a huge agenda, when I was writing Bert & Ernie, they were," Saltzman said. "So I don't think I'd know how else to write them, but as a loving couple."
For black women at church, it's more than the Aretha eulogy
A black pastor's controversial eulogy at Aretha Franklin's funeral laid bare before the world what black women say they have experienced for generations: sexism and inequality in their houses of worship every Sunday.
Ladies, I'm with you... but if you really feel disrespected by your church leave and don't subject your daughters to becoming future ragdolls to an antiquated society. God belongs to the heart. 09-Sep-2018
Hundreds Arrested in Multiday Protests of Supreme Court Nominee
U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing in the Senate this week was frequently disrupted as protesters were removed from the hearing room by police, with more than 200 people arrested.
Protesters are removed during the fourth day of Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., September 7, 2018.
In an unusually intense episode of civil disobedience on Capitol Hill, the four-day Senate Judiciary Committee hearing was targeted for “creative resistance” by liberal activist groups, said Linda Sarsour, Women's March board member.
“This is a travesty of justice! Adjourn the hearing!” Sarsour, 38, yelled on Tuesday morning as she was the first to be taken out of the hearing room by police officers.
Obama calls on California to rise up against ‘anger and division’ of Trump and GOP
Read the full transcript of Obama’s fiery anti-Trump speech
Barack Obama is done holding back.
The former president unloaded on President Trump — by name — and Republicans in Congress during a blistering speech at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign on Friday, urging students in the audience to vote in an election he called a turning point.
“It did not start with Donald Trump,” Obama said. “He is a symptom, not the cause.” But he went on to criticize Trump and Republicans in Congress at length, calling out coziness with Russia’s Vladimir Putin, Trump’s tweets about the Justice Department investigating Republicans, the president’s reluctance to criticize Nazi sympathizers after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and more.
“Republicans who know better in Congress — and they’re there, they’re quoted saying, Yeah, we know this is kind of crazy — are still bending over backward to shield this behavior from scrutiny or accountability,” he said.
A rush transcript of Obama’s remarks is below...
State says seniors were abandoned during California wildfire
Staff at two senior care centers abandoned residents during an evacuation as wildfires swept through Northern California last October, state officials said Thursday as they moved to revoke licenses from the Santa Rosa facilities and their top administrators. Nobody in either facility died.
A Department of Social Services complaint says more than 20 people would have died when a dementia facility burned to the ground if family members and emergency responders hadn't evacuated them after all staff left. The investigation says night staff members at Villa Capri were not trained in emergency procedures and had never practiced a fire drill. They could not find keys to a bus that could have sped evacuations.
At least three residents were never evacuated from another facility, Varenna, and workers who found them the next morning lied about it, the investigation found.
Both care centers are owned by Oakmont Senior Living, which called the allegations unfounded.
