  • Air Canada Will No Longer Refer To Passengers As “Ladies & Gentlemen”.

    Many airlines are making efforts to be more inclusive. For example, earlier this year we saw airlines for the first time add a non-binary gender option when booking travel, including the option to select “X” as your gender (rather than “M” or “F”). Air Canada is largely a progressive airline, and La Presse reports on an internal memo that has been sent to employees. Currently Air Canada’s flight attendants, gate agents, and pilots, refer to passengers as “ladies and gentlemen” when making announcements, but they’ll soon be updating their phrasing to be more gender neutral.

    High school cheerleaders on probation for posing with pro-Trump banner A high school cheerleading squad in North Carolina was put on probation Monday for posing with a pro-President Trump banner at a football game. Members of the North Stanly High School squad posed for photos with the “Trump 2020: Make America Great Again” flag at an Aug. 30 game on “American Night” — in which students were encouraged to dress patriotically, the Stanly News & Press reported. One photo — depicting seven girls in red, white and blue cheer uniforms and two boys in red “MAGA” caps with the banner...

    Heather Friesen, 26, had a GoPro strapped to her head as she fell down the sheer rocks at the Ka’au Crater Trail, cheating death — but suffering a collapsed lung, 10 broken ribs and a fractured scapula. Saying that time slowed down as she fell, she said her “friends were freaking out that I was going to die” but she knew she would make it. She added, “I found out there had been others before me who fell from the same spot and died, and I know that God saved my life that day.”

    The New York Times tweeted and then deleted a comment Wednesday about the 9/11 attacks that suggested airplanes, not terrorists, were responsible for killing almost 3,000 people. The article is about “remembering those lost 18 years ago on 9/11,” when terrorists overtook multiple planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Another plane crashed into a Pennsylvania field after citizens on board tried to take down the terrorists. “18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center,” the NYT original tweet read. Terrorists were responsible for the 9/11 attacks, not...

    Mandt also said he was not sure if a petition that circulated earlier in the year had anything to do with Sodexo's decision, but at the start of a meeting he had with Sodexo, a new regional manager said they had "political and contractual differences." In April, Marshall and Sodexo received a petition with more than 750 signatures from people requesting the university and its contracted food vendor cut ties with Stewarts. That came following social media posts made by Mandt after he chose not to attend a vigil at the local mosque honoring victims of a mass shooting in...

    Marvel's The Amazing Spider-Man is changing the dynamic of Peter Parker's social circle in a huge way as he's been forced to defend his roommate, Boomerang, from the new incarnation of the Syndicate, an all-female crew sent by Wilson Fisk to kidnap him. But while the latest chapter sees the team pursuing Boomerang to undoubtedly score a major payday, we eventually discover a common ambition the members share: They want to bring down the patriarchy and, more so, take a shot against toxic masculinity in a New York that they believe should have more women in power. When the women...

By Vatican NewsThe message for the occasion is signed by the Delegate of the Australian Bishops for Migrants and Refugees, Bishop Max Davis. In it, he recalls the theme of Pope Francis’ message for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees which will be celebrated on September 29, on the theme: "It is not just about migrants”.

    Beto O’Rourke: ‘We’ll Lose America’ If Trump Stays in Office Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” 2020 presidential hopeful former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) predicted if President Donald Trump won a second term, “we’ll lose America.” O’Rourke said, “There is a concerted, organized attack against immigrants, against people of color, against those who do not look like or pray like or love like the majority in this country. And this moment will define us one way or another. And if we do not wake up to it, I am convinced that we’ll lose America, this country, in our sleep. And...

    Pope Francis appoints pro-Islam archbishop to lead major French city Analysis August 16, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis recently named a new archbishop for the major French city of Marseille on the Mediterranean coast: Bishop Jean-Marc Aveline, 60, best known for his commitment to “islamo-christian dialogue.” His nomination is a clear message to the large Muslim community of Marseille, both North African and Sub-Saharan. The northern districts of the city are infamous in France for their poverty and insecurity, violent crime, and drug-trafficking. Jean-Marc Aveline was since 2013 auxiliary bishop of Marseille; before that, he was its vicar general. He...

    Trump just blamed the El Paso shooting victims for their own deaths He endorsed the racist manifesto’s worldview when he tied gun reform to immigration reform. Over the weekend, a white man with a semiautomatic rifle went on a shooting rampage at an El Paso Walmart, killing 22 people. President Trump, who averred that we cannot let the victims “die in vain,” offered an idea for how to prevent future shootings: “Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks, perhaps marrying this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. We must have something good, if not GREAT, come...

    Suburban women recoil as Trump dives into racial politics ROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) — Carol Evans approves of Donald Trump’s immigration policy. She gives him credit for the strong economy. But the Republican from the affluent Milwaukee suburbs of Waukesha County, a GOP bedrock in the state, just can’t commit to voting for the president next year like she did in 2016. “I just don’t like the way he talks about other people,” Evans, a 79-year-old retired data entry supervisor, said recently as she walked through a shopping mall in Brookfield, Wisconsin, days after Trump fired off a racist tweet at...

    Four House Judiciary Committee Democrats said in a Friday op-ed that they will "move forward" with an impeachment effort against President Trump. Democratic Reps. David Cicilline (R.I.), Pramila Jayapal (Wash.), Mary Gay Scanlon (Pa.) and Veronica Escobar (Texas) wrote in an op-ed published in The Atlantic that after former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony on Capitol Hill this week, “it is up to Congress to act.” "Our investigation will seriously examine all the evidence as we consider whether to bring articles of impeachment or other remedies under our Article I powers," the four Democrats wrote. “Our Constitution requires it.

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) held a press conference with members of the far-left Squad to respond to what the left claims are “racist” attacks from President Trump. Trump suggested the freshman Democrats should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” if they are so unhappy with the United States. The press conference devolved into a bashing session against Trump’s policies, with Omar citing Trump’s purported Islamophobia and asserting that he is perpetuating “the agenda of white nationalists.” “He would love nothing more than to divide our country based on race, religion,...

    Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke mocked President Trump’s claims of victory in the recent deal reached with Mexico to avert his threatened tariffs – calling the president’s claims “overblown” and arguing that he has hurt the economic ties between Washington and its closest neighbor. “I think the president has completely overblown what he purports to have achieved. These are agreements that Mexico had already made and, in some case, months ago,” the former congressman from Texas said on ABC’s “This Week.” “They might have accelerated the timetable, but by and large the president achieved nothing except to jeopardize the most...

    AOC slams FBI over double standard for white supremacists WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proclaimed on Twitter Wednesday that “Neo-Nazis are getting off the hook,” sharing a video of a back-and-forth she had with FBI leadership over who gets defined as a terrorist. “This hearing was wild,” Ocasio-Cortez said. The New York Democrat questioned Michael McGarrity, the assistant director of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, at a House Oversight subcommittee hearing Tuesday. AOC was trying to make the point that white supremacists – what the hearing was about – and Muslim terror suspects were treated differently under the law. “Doesn’t it...

    By now, the public is well aware of the “Green New Deal” proposed by freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. They have not responded well to calls for forced veganism and banning airplanes, let alone giving up the American way of life made possible by cheap energy. But while Ocasio-Cortez has taken the brunt of the media focus, environmental groups have developed a new strategy to get their way: pass a type of “Green New Deal” state by state.

Former Vice President Biden was asked Saturday by an activist with the US Youth Climate Strike if he would support a presidential climate debate hosted by her group, at which point he jumped in to tout his global-warming bona fides. “By the way, I want you to know: I’m the guy that did all this stuff—read RealClearPolitics, it will tell you about how I started this whole thing back in ’87 with climate change,” he said...
