'Flight shaming' hits air travel: One in five claim to be cutting back on flying due to environmental damage, survey finds

 

One in five households have already cut back on flying because they are ashamed of the environmental damage they are causing, according to a report.

An environmental movement called 'flight-shaming' - which counts Swedish school girl activist Greta Thunberg among its supporters - is beginning to make even hard-nosed investors in the aviation industry nervous.

Banking giant UBS has predicted that the campaign could halve growth in air traffic in the decades to come.

Should I Intervene With a Kid Who Says He Is Depressed? 

 

Dear Care and Feeding,

My 11-year-old son has been friends with “Paul” for more than two years. During that time, Paul has been suspended from school multiple times for his language (he drops the F-bomb constantly, has called his teacher the B-word, etc.) and disruptive behavior. He’s known to deliver very colorful commentary on how he sees the world, shouting out some particularly interesting bits at times. Nevertheless, Paul is a smart and sensitive kid, and I am rooting for him. We all are.

The reason I’m writing is because Paul recently told my son that he sneaks and drinks his mother’s vodka when he’s feeling depressed, which is “most of the time,” in his words. He has mentioned those feelings before, and I’m also aware that telling tall tales is part of his swagger. For the most part, we take them in stride, but the combination of the alleged drinking and depression made me pause. I’m honestly not sure if Paul is just trying to look cool or if he’s trying to ask for help.

My plan, which I shared with my son, is to wait and see if Paul ever talks to me about these issues, and to then talk to a grown-up who has some oversight in his life, i.e., the school principal or his teacher. I wonder if I’m doing enough or if I should do more, though I’m not even sure what that would entail, as a conversation with his parents seems impossible—they are not at all approachable. Am I just sticking my nose in where it doesn’t belong? Your thoughts are appreciated.

—All Eyes on Paul

Ending the HIV/AIDS Epidemic Only Happens if Black America Leads 

 

The underpinning of the administration’s plan is the recent surveillance data that shows that 50 percent of the U.S. epidemic is in 48 counties, Washington D.C., and San Juan, Puerto Rico, and seven states that have a substantial rural population living with HIV. While there is no question that focusing on the jurisdictions with the highest HIV burden makes sense, we must ask if focusing on geography alone — the where — will unlock the mystery of ending the HIV epidemic.

But with 60 percent of the Black HIV epidemic lying within the aforementioned jurisdictions, can we end the HIV/AIDS epidemic without also focusing on the other W’s, the who and the what?

Odell Beckham Jr. not bothered by people speculating he is gay 

 

GQ: There was a period of time when a lot of gossip sites — specifically black gossip sites — would constantly say that you were closeted. They’d call you “excited” in a hot-tub photo with your teammates or simply just say you’re gay. How’d that make you feel?

Beckham: I’ve never had an opportunity to talk about this. Honestly wasn’t offended. I’ve never once had no problem with anybody who has their own personal life that they live. I have friends who are gay. It was almost more funny to me. I almost messed with them even more. It’s like when someone gives me an ultimatum, I’m usually always going to go to the opposite way of what you want me to go. So when they would say that, I would almost mess with them even more. I have no problem with anyone’s sexual orientation.

How rich people could help save the planet from climate change 

 

Rich people don't just have bigger bank balances and more lavish lifestyles than the rest of us -- they also have bigger carbon footprints.

The more stuff you own, and the more you travel, the more fossils fuels are burned, and the more greenhouse gases are emitted into the atmosphere.
Jetting around, buying luxury goods, keeping mansions warm and driving supercars -- they all have a carbon footprint.

Oxfam has estimated that the average carbon footprint of someone in the world's richest 1% could be 175 times that of someone in the poorest 10%. Studies also show that the poor suffer the most from climate change.
Read: While the rich world braces for future climate change, the poor world is already being devastated by it

But some argue that the wealthy can do the most to help fix the climate crisis. Here's how they could make a difference.

Gay teen writes emotional letter to parents who won't accept him 

 

A gay teen from Nanuet, New York, has written a heart-breaking letter to his parents who wouldn’t accept him for being who he is.

Kent Mendez, 19, tweeted a photo of the letter, in both English and Spanish, on 8 July in an act that has the entire social media website collectively crying.

In the devastating letter, Mendez explained that, with LGBTI youth rejected by their parents being more likely to consider taking their own live, he refused to ‘become another statistic.’

What happened?
Mendez left it all behind on Sunday morning. The bedroom he had lived in for years. His dog, Valentino.

But in the letter he left behind for his mother and father, he explained that while the decision was difficult, the life he had led was even more so.

‘There hasn’t been a day where I haven’t cried or struggled to find the energy to get out of bed,’ he wrote.

‘I feel trapped and manipulated every time I walk out of my room.’

Grande announced she would be partnering with non-profit voter registration group HeadCount in March via Instagram, telling fans to “use your voice and get your ‘thank u, next gen’ sticker.”

Cracker Barrel Tells Pastor His Church Is Not Welcome After Sermon Calling for Execution of Gay People 

 

A Cracker Barrel restaurant in Tennessee turned away a pastor who preached anti-LGBT sermons, including that gay people should be executed by the government.

Grayson Fritts, a Tennessee pastor who is also a detective at the Knox County, Tennessee Sheriff’s Office, was planning a meeting with his church group at the Cracker Barrel in Cleveland, Tenn. on June 29. When the chain found out, Cracker Barrel refused to host them, citing the restaurant’s “zero tolerance policy for discriminatory treatment or harassment of any sort.”

Music Industry Tests Mini-Grants to Help Artists Recover: 'I Want to See Rappers Name-Checking Their Therapists' 

 

Is the music industry’s increased ­spending on mental health making a difference?

The high-profile deaths of artists like Chris Cornell, Lil Peep and Chester Bennington in 2017 led to a spike in funding by music companies on mental health research and groups that provide resources to uninsured artists. But while spending has increased by 25%, the number of artists reporting mental illness issues and self-medication for depression has grown slightly, frustrating mental health advocates.

"I’m tired of watching people die from this disease," said Macklemore on May 16 during MusiCares’ 15th annual Concert for Recovery in Los Angeles, where he accepted an award and paid tribute to rapper Mac Miller, who died of a drug overdose on Sept. 7 at the age of 27.

As the music industry assesses how it allocates resources, many are shifting toward a more targeted approach, forgoing large grants and endowments to organizations in favor of smaller, direct payments to individuals in need of counseling, hospitalization or rehab.

Milwaukee County Declares Racism A Public Health Crisis 

 

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele signed a resolution Monday (May 20) stating how racism is a public health crisis and that the county plans to take action.

"Everybody has been reading and hearing about the same set of statistics in Milwaukee for decades," Abele said. "We lead in an unfortunate way the racial disparities in employment, in education, incarceration, income and even things like ... access to capital."

The resolution hopes to take actionable steps to level the playing field in Milwaukee, a playing field that finds minorities disproportionately affected.

Kicked out, spat on and abused, new UK shelter helps LGBT+ homeless 

 

LONDON, May 15 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Apart from being spat on and urinated on when he slept rough in London for over a year, 52-year-old Chabahn had to contend with another daily threat: being abused and attacked for his sexuality.

Chabahn, who is gay but kept it hidden on the streets, said living with HIV was an additional burden that some mainstream shelters did not have the capacity to support him with.

"When it comes to being LGBT, the amount of discrimination on the street is rather high. There is no safety, you have to fend for yourself," said Chabahn, who declined to give his full name.

"You have to become a very good actor and you have to be someone that you are not."

Transport for London bans adverts from 11 countries over anti-LGBTQ laws 

 

Transport for London has banned adverts from several countries with poor human rights records.
According to the Evening Standard, a total of 11 countries are affected by the ban, which comes into place after Green Party London Assembly member Caroline Russell wrote to Mayor Sadiq Khan with concerns about them.

Last month, it was reported that the transport network would remove adverts promoting Brunei after the south-east Asian nation implemented a strict new law that will see LGBTQ people killed for same-sex relations.

Pride: La oportunidad de curar, empoderar y respetar a la comunidad LGBT 

 

Entrevista con Fernando López, director ejecutivo de San Diego LGBT Pride, una organización sin fines de lucro que trabaja para fomentar respeto e igualdad para la comunidad LGBT a nivel local y global.

Tener un lugar en la mesa no significa mucho si la mesa es demasiado pequeña para ser inclusiva de alguna manera significativa, y eso es algo que Fernando López Jr. no ha perdido de vista desde que se unió a San Diego LGBT Pride como director ejecutivo el año pasado.

“En la comunidad LGBT no sólo ves necesidades no compensadas, sino que te encuentras con un gran potencial que no se ha explotado. Mi objetivo ha sido construir una mesa más grande, venir de una mentalidad de abundancia y generosidad”, dijo López, quien se identifica como no binario y usa el pronombre elle (they, en inglés).

“La gente quiere sentirse escuchada, vista y valorada. Todos buscamos algún tipo de conexión y una forma de sentir que nuestras vidas están al servicio de algo más que de nosotros mismos”.

A mumps outbreak on the campus of Temple University in Philadelphia has reached the triple digits. The city health department said the number of confirmed and probable cases of mumps at the school reached 108 as of Thursday.

Nearly 5,000 students and faculty members have taken advantage of free vaccine booster shots, with more than 2,500 people given shots Friday during the second clinic offering the MMR vaccine, according to city health officials. The first clinic at the school Wednesday saw more than 2,200 people.

"It's just really scary to me so I decided to go and get it," one student said, CBS Philly reported.
