Trump Loses Travel Ban Ruling in Appeals Court

Trump Loses Travel Ban Ruling in Appeals Court | 12 June 2017 | A second federal appeals court on Monday ruled against President Trump's revised travel ban.

Professor: 'white marble' in artwork contributes to white supremacy

Professor: 'white marble' in artwork contributes to white supremacy | 08 June 2017 | A University of Iowa professor recently argued that appreciation of "white marble" used in classical artwork contributes to "white supremacist ideas today." Professor Sarah Bond demonstrates in an article published in Hyperallergic that "many of the statues, reliefs, and sarcophagi created in the ancient Western world were in fact painted," meaning the "white marble" often seen in such pieces of art were intended to be colored. Consequently, Bond argues that "the equation of white marble with beauty is not an inherent truth of the universe," and is thus "a dangerous construct that continues to influence white supremacist ideas today."

Australian police to get greater powers to shoot in militant sieges

Australian police to get greater powers to shoot in militant sieges | 08 June 2017 | Police in Australia's most populous state will be allowed to shoot suspects in "terrorist related" incidents even if the attacker does not pose an imminent threat, under a proposed law, New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian said on Thursday. The change comes after a series of "lone wolf" Islamist-inspired attacks, the most serious of which raised questions about the traditional police strategy of "contain and negotiate" in hostage situations. Under the proposal, which is likely to be adopted in the state's parliament given the support for it, lethal force can be used immediately if an incident is declared "terrorist related" by the state's most senior police officer, Berejiklian told reporters in Sydney. Currently, police have to wait until a suspect demonstrates an imminent threat to others.
