  • (LGBT BARF ALERT) BBS - Tube (Subway) to change 'hello ladies and gentlemen'...

    07/13/2017 1:09:44 PM PDT · by johnk · 34 replies ^ | 7/13/17 | BBC
    The "ladies and gentlemen" greeting on Tube announcements is to be scrapped, Transport for London (TfL) has announced. London Underground staff have been told to say "hello everyone" in an effort to become more gender-neutral. TfL said the move was to ensure all passengers felt "welcome". LGBT campaign group Stonewall welcomed the decision, which was supported by London mayor Sadiq Khan at a session of Mayor's Question Time last month. The revised phrasing will be applied to all new pre-recorded announcements made across the capital's transport network. Mark Evers, director of customer strategy at TfL, said: "We want everyone to...

    WASHINGTON — The United States is said to have disclosed that Saudi King Abdullah was dying. (Snip) The sources said the photograph was taken by White House personnel during Obama’s meeting with the Saudi king outside Riyad on March 28.“The Saudis specifically did not want any photograph that showed Abdullah with the tube,” a source said. “But there was a White House photographer that took the picture for what he said was history.” The photograph was said to have been relayed to members of the White House press corps. Within a day, an image of the Saudi king with the...

    Tunnelers expanding London's Underground (Tube) stations have stumbled on a cache of more than two dozen Roman-era skulls. The skulls likely date from the first century A.D. and may possibly—just possibly—be victims of the famed Queen Boudicca's troops, decapitated during her uprising against Roman rule in 61 A.D.

    World Crisis Alert: Guantanamo Bay detainees don't want to eat. Muslim rapper Yasiin "Mos Def" Bey is so worked up about their appetite plight that he videotaped himself being force-fed to build support for closing Gitmo. Cry me a river. This latest round of hunger strikes isn't an international human rights tragedy. It's another manipulative act of Jihad Theater. Have you forgotten? Calculated Gitmo fabulism goes back to 2005, when Newsweek fell for false rumors that U.S. soldiers "flushed" the Koran down a toilet at the military detention facility in Cuba. Gullible media reports of "desecration" provided a handy pretext...

    In a video made with United Kingdom-based human rights group Reprieve, Yasiin Bey, the actor/rapper formerly known as Mos Def, volunteered to have himself force-fed in the same manner as a procedure reportedly used on hunger-striking Guantanamo detainees. The graphic video, which was posted by the Guardian Monday, was directed by Asif Kapadia and based on a leaked government document outlining the "Standard Operating Procedure" for the "medical management of detainees on hunger strike." [Editor's Note: Video is graphic in nature. Viewer discretion is advised.] [video] In the video, Bey is restrained while two volunteer doctors lodge a tube up...

    Surgeons at Tucson's University Medical Center removed Rep. Gabrielle Giffords from a ventilator Saturday and inserted a tracheotomy tube into her neck to assist her breathing, according to the center. Removing her from the ventilator, which means she is now breathing on her own, allows the medical team to assess her ability to speak and is another step toward stabilizing her condition so that she can leave the intensive care unit and be moved to a regular hospital room. The tracheotomy tube in her throat provides a passageway for free movement of air and, if she begins to have trouble...

    London Underground is today accused of an appalling security blunder for allowing Abu Hamza's son to work on the network. Mohammed Kamel Mostafa, 25, from Wembley - a convicted terrorist - was given a security pass and access to restricted areas. He worked as a labourer at nights and weekends for a sub-contractor despite having spent three years in a Yemen jail for plotting to blow up British tourists. His father is serving seven years for inciting murder and racial hatred at London mosques. Labour MP Andrew Dismore said today of Mostafa: "It beggars belief. It wasn't like he was...

    LONDON - The suicide bombers who killed 52 passengers on London's transit system last year contacted someone in Pakistan just before striking, Britain's top law enforcement official said Thursday. Home Secretary John Reid also told the House of Commons that police and intelligence agencies had thwarted three attacks since the July 7 bombings, but did not say who was behind them or where and when they were to take place. Reid's statement indicated that a third bombing attempt had been stopped since February when Peter Clarke, deputy assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said two attacks had been thwarted since...

    Shooting Policy Defended Updated: 11:19, Wednesday March 08, 2006 Police tactics for dealing with suspected suicide bombers have been backed by senior officers, despite the fatal shooting of an innocent Brazilian. Jean Charles de Menezes was shot dead at a Tube station in London after being mistaken for a terrorist. In backing the policy - called Operation Kratos - the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) acknowledged it was still awaiting the outcome of an official investigation into the Tube shooting.

    LONDON -- Union leaders representing London Underground workers said Thursday they will hold talks with managers aimed at preventing a crippling New Year's Eve strike on the city's subway system. The negotiations will take place at arbitration service ACAS on Friday in the hope of avoiding a planned 24-hour walkout from noon Dec. 31. Members of the RMT transport union announced the action, and another 24-hour walkout on Jan. 8-9, after members voted by more than five to one for industrial action in a dispute about hours and staffing levels. The action would paralyze the capital's underground network and cause...

    U.S. NAVAL STATION GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba, Dec. 1, 2005 – The small number of involuntary feedings conducted at the U.S. detention facility here are done humanely and are well within common standards of medical care, officials said in an effort to counter allegations made by attorneys for some detainees here. Thirty to 33 enemy combatant detainees here are currently on a hunger strike -- which officials here call "voluntary fasting" -- to protest their continued detention. Of those, 22 are receiving liquid nutrition through a tube inserted through the nose and into the stomach. "We have an ultimate responsibility that...
