Croke Park Security in place to prevent One Directioners from queuing too

first_img Source: An Garda Síochána/Twitter UPDATED 4.24pmCROKE PARK HAS said that security staff are working today to prevent One Direction fans from queuing too early in the local residential area.Responding to concerns that security guards were in place from 7am this morning, a spokesperson said Croke Park, MCD Promotions and the gardaí are “very conscious of the local community in all aspects of planning for the One Direction concerts this weekend”.“Security stewards have been in place around the stadium since 7am this morning to monitor, observe and report on activity and work with the Gardaí in relation to any issues with access and concert patrons arriving early into residential areas nearest the stadium.”The spokesperson also said that residents have not been denied access to their homes or business.“No road closures are in place.”Earlier, some residents expressed their concerns about security staff being in place this morning.They said they had made an official complaint to gardaí, claiming they had been denied access and parking.Locals have been vocal about the upcoming Garth Brooks’ and One Direction gigs which are taking place at the Dublin stadium. They have repeated calls for the number of special events at the stadium to be reduced.Labour Relations Commission chief Kieran Mulvey was appointed to chair talks between residents, GAA bosses and promoters with the aim of solving the dispute over the number of concerts being held at the stadium, but residents have called the process “a sham”.Preparations for the One Direction concerts, which will begin tomorrow night, have already got underway: 1 Direction Concerts Dublin post any queries U have & Insp Gallagher Mountjoy Garda will reply 7 – 8 pm this evening— An Garda Síochána (@GardaTraffic) May 21, 2014center_img Angry residentsEamon O’Brien, Croke Park Streets Committees and Irish Stadium Communities Association, said the “lock down” of the area has already begun.  Source: Shane MurphyLocal resident Peter Branagan told, that his understanding of the law is that only a uniformed gardaí has the powers to direct persons away from a cordoned area, citing section 21 of Criminal Justice Public Order Act 1994:… a member of the Garda Síochána not below the rank of superintendent that it is necessary in the interests of safety or for the purpose of preserving order to restrict the access of persons to a place where an event is taking or is about to take place which attracts, or is likely to attract, a large assembly of persons….It goes on to say that only a member of the Garda Síochána is permitted to erect a barrier or a series of barriers on any road, street, lane, alley or other means of access in a one mile radius. Source: Shane MurphyLawThe law states that where a barrier has been erected only “a member of the Garda Síochána in uniform may by oral or manual direction or by the exhibition of any notice or sign… divert persons generally or particularly and whether in or on vehicles or on foot to another means of access to the event, including a means of access to that event on foot only…”.Branagan pointed out that this is not just in relation to the One Direction concerts, but that it is an ongoing issue, saying the whole matter has been “handled disgracefully”.“It goes on all the time. I’ve pointed it out to the gardaí before, I have gone to the land registry and pointed out boundary areas, but I’m just ignored,” he said.In relation to passes that the gardaí say are for residents access, he said that there is no law that states that a resident must display a pass in order to access their home.“No security personnel has the right to stop me having access to my street regardless of whether I have a pass or not. It’s outrageous,” he said.He added that he had no problem if it was properly implemented, saying:Only the gardaí have authority to restrict access. If there are barriers in place I should be able to just say I live here and be able to drive through, simple as that. There is no legal authority for them to stop me going to my house.In a statement, gardaí said that if anyone wishes to make a complaint about any issue they should contact their local station.They said that any such reports will be fully investigated, but they would not confirm correspondence from third parties as such reports are confidential.Croke Park also noted that there is a local community team in place, as well as a dedicated 1800 number to deal with any issues around the concert set up.Read: Thought of how your kids will be getting to the One Direction gigs?

Woman gets year in prison in 400000 theft from employer

first_imgA 60-year-old woman who formerly managed Vancouver-based Grimm Enterprises was sentenced Tuesday in Clark County Superior Court to a year in prison for bilking the property business out of more than $400,000.Debra A. Ingalls of Vancouver pleaded guilty last month to a single count of first-degree theft. Court records show she originally faced two counts.“(Ingalls) had our trust. She was treated like family, so much so that she was added as a trustee” to the company, said Lisa Sorenson, who is also a trustee of Grimm Enterprises along with her stepmother, Carolyn Grimm.The business is owned by the trust and manages more than 70 residential and commercial properties in the Vancouver area, including Club Green Meadows. All of the properties are owned by Carolyn Grimm, whose husband Joseph Grimm oversaw the company’s operations until his death in 2010. When Joseph Grimm died, Carolyn Grimm handed over responsibilities to the company’s managers; she told investigators she is no longer involved due to her age, according to an affidavit of probable cause.In December 2014, Ingalls was injured when “a carport at one of Grimm’s rental properties hit her in the head during a windstorm,” the probable cause affidavit says. She was in a coma for two weeks.last_img read more

Aaron Lennon not expecting England callup

first_imgAaron Lennon admits that it’s unlikely he will get a call-up to the English national team, despite an impressive display for Burnley on SaturdayThe 31-year-old winger found the net for the first time in over two years in Burnley’s 4-0 win over Bournemouth.It was the Clarets first of the new Premier League season.But, despite impressing in front of England boss Gareth Southgate, Lennon is not expecting his first England call-up since February 2013.He told Sky Sports: “It’s a long time since I played international football.“You never know. But the only thing I am concentrating on is playing well for Burnley. Whatever happens, happens.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.On his goal drought, Lennon added: “It’s been preying on my mind to be honest.“I should score more. I’ve had a few chances this season but it is great to get the goal.“If you are playing every game you want to aim for double figures. But for me getting assists is just as important. It makes my day if the other lads score as well.“It didn’t matter how we won. We knew it was just important to get back to winning ways. To win 4-0 was even better.“We worked on it all week, getting back to basics, being on the front foot and doing what we do. From minute one we were in their faces and it has paid off for us.”Burnley are now 16th in the Premier League table.last_img read more

Nearly an inch of rain expected in first week of fall

first_imgThe first full day of fall is expected to bring with it rain to Southwest Washington. Widespread moderate to heavy rain is expected to begin along the coast late this afternoon and then slowly spread inland Tuesday night and Wednesday, according to a National Weather Service special weather statement.Rainfall totals from today through the end of the week are expected to reach nearly an inch in the inland and one to two inches on the coast and in the mountains, the weather service reports.The predicted rainfall would be the most rain the area has seen in months and so authorities warn that residual oil and grease on the roadway will likely create slick driving conditions. The weather agency warned of localized flooding, especially in areas affected by wildfires. Coastal regions may see wind gusts of up to 55 mph.last_img read more

Church of Englands synod takes on Brexit divisions as zero hour approaches

Church of Englands synod takes on Brexit divisions as zero hour approaches

first_img Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email As Amazon burns, Vatican prepares for summit on region’s faith and sustainabilit … August 30, 2019 News Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,LONDON (RNS) — The Church of England’s most senior leaders are expected to rebuke Britain’s political leaders over their handling of Brexit at the church’s General Synod this week.In a special motion at synod, just weeks before the Brexit deadline, the archbishops of Canterbury and York will urge politicians to do more to heal divisions in society.The motion, put forward by Justin Welby, archbishop of Canterbury, and John Sentamu, archbishop of York, says that “social divisions feel more entrenched and intractable than for many years.” It also refers to “the divisions within the major political parties which are stifling the emergence of a hopeful and viable visions for the common good in our communities.”Although the motion does not explicitly mention Brexit, it says that “the nation’s leaders must work together for the common good at this time of division” and that the Christian commitment “to putting the voices of the poor and marginalized at the heart of the nation’s concerns” must be reaffirmed.The archbishops call on every diocese and parish to pray regularly for Parliament members and the government, seeking God’s strength and wisdom for the responsibilities they bear.Justin Welby, archbishop of Canterbury, addresses the General Synod at Church House on Feb. 20, 2019, in London. Video screengrab via Church of EnglandThe synod debate comes in the same week that Prime Minister Theresa May has written to all 317 Tory MPs, urging them to unite behind a Brexit deal while warning them “history will judge us all” over the process. But three of her Conservative MPs quit their party. Anna Soubry, Sarah Wollaston and Heidi Allen wrote a joint letter to May saying that the government’s “disastrous handling” of Brexit was the final straw. Meanwhile, May was striving yet again this week to persuade the European Union to agree to changes to the “backstop” plan to prevent the return of customs checks on the Irish border.The U.K. remains on course to leave the European Union on March 29, even as May has been unable so far to convince a majority of MPs to back the withdrawal terms she struck with the EU last year.The country also remains deeply divided over Brexit, with growing anxiety about the impact on jobs and investment when Britain quits the EU, especially if a new relationship with Europe is not in place by the time of Britain’s withdrawal.Church of England Synod officials have cleared almost two hours in the agenda on Saturday afternoon (Feb. 23) to enable the assembly of representatives of clergy, bishops and lay members of the church to debate the motion on the state of the nation.This is at least the third time Welby has voiced his concern in the Brexit debate. Two years ago, in his presidential address to General Synod, he said the Church of England must take part in reshaping post-Brexit Britain or risk seeing the country ruined by its current problems.“This could be a time of liberation, of seizing and defining the future, or it could be one in which the present problems seize our national future and define us,” he said.Attendees take a break to meet one another at the Church of England’s General Synod at Church House on Feb. 20, 2019, in London. Video screengrab via Church of EnglandIn January, speaking in the House of Lords, Welby warned that if Parliament fails in the task entrusted to it of sorting out a Brexit deal, a second referendum might be necessary. “This is about more than Brexit, and Parliament must not show itself unfit for the job,” he said.Just before Christmas, Church of England bishops also said they were praying for “courage, integrity and clarity for our politicians” at a time of turmoil over Brexit, while Welby and Sentamu called on churches to pray for politicians, “praying for wisdom, courage, integrity and compassion for our political leaders and all MPs; for reconciliation; and for fresh and uniting vision for all in our country.”Their comments were also endorsed by the Rt. Rev. Susan Brown, moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, along with the Most Rev. John Davies, archbishop of Wales.With time running out, the U.K.’s Anglican churches aren’t the only ones praying for Britain. The umbrella organization Churches Together in Britain and Ireland has issued a request that all its member churches and associated bodies join together “in a time of dedicated prayer for the political situation in the United Kingdom.”The moderator of CTBI, Angaelos, Coptic archbishop of London, asked for help from abroad as well, saying, “We hope and pray that every person of faith will join us in prayer across our nation, and beyond.” Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,About the authorView All Posts News • Photos of the Week Share This!

OpenWorm project reaches new milestone—muscle simulation

OpenWorm project reaches new milestone—muscle simulation

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. ( —The OpenWorm project has reached a significant milestone, team members report—muscular contraction that is able to drive the simulated worm forward in a stream of simulated water. The next step for project members is to connect simulated brain cells with muscle cells allowing the worm to control its own movements. The team also hopes to create a virtual version of the worm to allow for porting to an interactive web application for use by the general public. Citation: OpenWorm project reaches new milestone—muscle simulation (2013, December 23) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Building a digital life form: OpenWorm, Open Sourcecenter_img The goal of the OpenWorm project is simple and straightforward—building the first (others have tried and met with limited success) digital life form—getting there of course, is anything but. The idea is to replicate how it is that living organisms do what they do. In the case of the nematode, that means, among other things, swimming through water in a way reminiscent of an eel.The project is an international open source collaboration and as such is open to anyone who wishes to participate. Of course those who choose to do so will find a certain degree of expertise in computer programming or biology will be needed. The team reports that the nematode was chosen as the first simulated life form because of its simplicity—the real worm has just 959 total cells—almost half of which are muscle cells or neurons.Building a simulated life form is challenging—it would be a simple matter to simply draw a nematode and then animate it—Hollywood has been doing that for over half a century. What’s difficult is to use computer code to create and simulate the underlying basic elements that make up a nematode and then have them perform the way they do with the real organism, resulting in virtually identical behavior. That means creating code that describes such things as how its cell muscle cells work and then how they work together in order to cause the entire organism to move in a way that suggests forward progress. In this instance, that’s a lot of code and number crunching—it took three full days of rendering to produce less than a fraction of a second of action. This is significant progress—the OpenWorm project only just started this past May. The first simulation involved causing muscle cells to do nothing more than twitch.

Costa Ricas Supreme Court orders release of Nicaraguan unjustly imprisoned for 17

Costa Ricas Supreme Court orders release of Nicaraguan unjustly imprisoned for 17

first_imgThe Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court, or Sala IV, on Tuesday unanimously voted in favor of an habeas corpus filed by a man who was wrongly imprisoned for a year and five months in Costa Rica.Police officers mistakenly arrested the man, a Nicaraguan national, at a police checkpoint after they found that the man’s name matched that of a Nicaraguan fugitive who had been sentenced by a criminal court to four years in prison. In their ruling, the justices noted that there was a 28-year difference between the two men’s ages. They also said the mens’ photographs did not match.“Even though the man at the time told all officials involved in his capture and imprisonment that they were mistaking him for someone else, none of them conducted the elementary procedures to verify his identity,” the justices wrote in a ruling.Upon confirming the error, the criminal court judge ordered the detainee’s release, according to a statement from Sala IV.The justices expressed their concern “over the indifference and negligence” showed by all officials involved in the case from Costa Rica’s prison system and the Judicial Investigation Police, who refused to respond to any of the man’s attempts to explain the identity mistake.Sala IV ordered the Prosecutors’ Office and the Judicial Investigation Police to open an investigation into the process and all officials involved.The Tico Times contacted Sala IV, the Prosecutors’ Office and the Judicial Investigation Police about the case, but was told the institutions were not authorized to disclose any further details.

For the past three years the Florida Tomato Exchange (FTE) has stayed on message, repeating its claims of Mexico’s unfair trading practices, illegal government subsidies, dumping of tomatoes on the US market, worker mistreatment, and more without backing up their accusations with evidence of any kind.”The Florida Tomato Exchange has for a long time advocated the U.S.’s withdrawal from the Tomato Suspension Agreement with Mexico, claiming that it has been flouted and that U.S. growers have suffered as a result. The FPAA, meanwhile, is a long-standing advocate of free trade for Mexican produce in North America and over recent months has frequently accused the FTE of protectionism. In the FPAA’s Monday statement, the organization listed a series of rebuttals regarding Schadler’s letter.In response to the FTE’s claims that Mexican tomato growers receive “illegal” subsidies and that is why they have taken so much market share away from Florida tomatoes, the FPAA said that although Mexico has had programs to promote agriculture, they are “small and nothing like our USDA programs”. “To the contrary, US government assistance to agriculture dwarfs anything that Mexico could possibly do,” it said.It added that the FTE “ignores development trends and grower consolidation to paint an inaccurate picture of farm closures”. The group said that the decline in the number of Floridian tomato companies during the 22-year duration of the old suspension agreement could be attributed to many causes.”Most importantly, Florida growers failed to see the rest of the agricultural world evolving into the 21st century and got passed by. Now they are crying foul,” it said.”They are mostly producing flavorless tomatoes that consumers have abandoned, and they are trying to use politics to maintain an outmoded business model.”It also highlighted that Mexican tomato imports are an important economic driver for U.S. companies and job creation.In addition, the FPAA said it ‘strongly agrees’ that U.S. farmers must be protected, but claimed the FTE’s action “go well beyond the intent of the law”. “They are attempting to create a seasonal monopoly to force their products onto the American public to make up for their lack of foresight and innovation.  In short, they are trying to regulate their way to profitability,” it said.The U.S. withdrew from the Tomato Suspension Agreement with Mexico in early May, implementing tariffs on 17.5% and reinitiating an anti-dumping investigation, the conclusions of which are expected toward the end of this year.

first_imgKevin Zimmerman, reporter and editorThe Cardinals will: Draft Kyler Murray. You don’t make a trade just to make a trade, and the reality is the Cardinals should take the player they want and not trade the pick — or Rosen — if a monster offer doesn’t come across Steve Keim’s desk. This presents the possibility we end up with a Rosen-Murray quarterback battle, which isn’t the worst result.Vince Marotta, Co-host of Bickley & MarottaThe Cardinals will: Draft Kyler Murray. I do believe the decision makers of the organization communicated with other teams about dealing the pick but were ultimately not blown away by what was offered to give it up. So, Murray will be the pick. The only intrigue that remains, in my mind, is whether or not the Cardinals are blown away by an offer for Josh Rosen before Thursday night.

The combination of Murray’s star upside and fit in Kliff Kingsbury’s system is too much to pass up.Matt Layman, reporter and editorThe Cardinals will: Draft either Nick Bosa or Quinnen Williams. I’m just not convinced the evidence is there that the Cardinals are planning to take Murray, and it’s hard to believe the rumors this time of year.

Trans campaigner I feel comfortable in my body now

Trans campaigner I feel comfortable in my body now

first_imgAfter living as a man for 45 years, one transgender woman has found salvation in telling her story of transition in appearances around the world. THEO PANAYIDES meets a woman who has spent much of her life hiding in furious activityThis will not be a political piece about transgender rights. It won’t dwell on hot-button issues like the problem of ‘deadnaming’ (calling a trans person by their birth name) or the furore over which toilets they should use. I do ask a few such questions of Jessica Lynn – as you might expect with a 53-year-old transwoman who transitioned in 2010, after a lifetime of trying – and maybe I should’ve asked more, but we just don’t have time. Sitting across from me at the Crown Inn Hotel in Nicosia, Jessica talks and talks about her life – fast and fluently, in a high, rather croaky voice, talking non-stop for over three hours. I stagger out, exhausted just from listening. She, however, is just getting started, awaiting a call from British charity Blenheim CDP in about 15 minutes (they want her to be keynote speaker at a conference next year), then doing a podcast in a couple of hours.“I’m an obsessive personality, I’m not gonna lie to you. OK? I tend to overdo things,” she admits at one point. Her story – the one she tells in such detail – has already been told 700-800 times around the world, before she tells it to me. “If you see my schedule, it’s insane. There are weeks that I speak in five different countries, on five different days”.She’s due to depart the next day, having given presentations at a couple of local events. After Cyprus it’s Vienna on Monday, London on Tuesday, Slovenia on Wednesday, later on she goes to Tel Aviv, Portugal, Japan; before Cyprus she spoke at the University of Hull, then the University of Maynooth in Dublin, then Limerick, then Loughborough: “I gave something like four presentations that day”. She’s not always paid, nor is she being sponsored by some large organisation, though there’s a Donate button on her website ( and a non-profit called ‘Your True Gender’, based in her native California. This compulsive globe-trotting is something she clearly has to do, both because of her legal woes (more on this later) but also because it’s become essential to her life. Jessica used to have vices; in her 20s, she drank to excess – yet she hasn’t touched a drop in 30 years, “the closest I’ve come is kissing a guy that’s been drinking”. This is her vice now, this is her obsession; this, you might say, is her salvation. “My release is going in front of 200, 300, 500 people, and telling them my story”.She talks openly, feverishly, intimately; when she laughs she’ll often tap me on the arm affectionately, like two old friends sharing a joke. Her diction veers from thoroughly blunt to oddly cutesy, like “coinki-dink” for ‘coincidence’; she’ll often end a sentence with “if that makes sense to you”, as if implying that it probably won’t. She remembers details, like the name of her son Bradley’s teacher when he was diagnosed with Tourette’s (she has three sons, Jeffrey and Curtis in addition to Bradley); she remembers how much everything cost, from houses to legal documents to the kids themselves (“I didn’t have medical insurance for him,” she recalls of Jeffrey, now 27 and her biggest supporter, “so he cost $5,000 to give birth to”). She recalls being brought back to life twice by doctors – not just once, but on two separate occasions – in the course of her turbulent life. She recalls having 14 employees and making over $100,000 a year (!) as an 18-year-old sign painter. We’ll get to that too, space permitting.This is not a piece about trans rights, it’s a profile of a life which would’ve been remarkable in any case – but it’s also about trans rights, inevitably. Jessica’s eyes are blue, her teeth very white, her hands rather big for a woman. She’s a tall, striking blonde with a touch of the rock star, and has been propositioned many a time since transitioning: “I’ve had the strangest pick-up lines. I’ve had a guy say: ‘Come back and I will lick your body for 24 hours straight’.” (This was in Istanbul, where the traders in the souk really took to her: “I had a guy – I was buying a necklace for a friend, sitting there talking to him – he goes: ‘Can I just take you in the back and f**k your brains out right now?’.”) Yes; but she also used to be Jeffrey Butterworth, a contractor and cabinet-maker in southern California – and, based on the photos she shows me, an intense-looking man with curly hair and a worried expression.She always knew, she says, even as young as four years old. “You’re born this way. It’s a proven fact.” Being trans is genetic but not hereditary (if that makes sense), though she did find out later that her dad, an accountant at IBM, had also been into cross-dressing, in a small way. Needless to say, Jessica’s “drive” went far beyond cross-dressing. She recalls going to her friend Michelle’s house – whose parents finally forbade the little boy from playing with their daughter anymore – to play dress-up and tea-party, “and I wanted to be her. And it did not make sense. This is in 1969-1970, nobody did that, I had no idea what it was. Why do I want to look, be, act, live like a girl?”. At seven, “when I learned the difference between boys and girls, I took a razor blade to bed and physically tried to saw off my penis”. Her parents never knew about that little incident (there was blood, but no serious damage) – but of course they sensed her inner struggle, and indeed later revealed (when she finally came out to them, in her early 20s) that they’d thought about transitioning her at four or five years old, and had taken her to see renowned sexologist Dr John Money at UCLA.Why didn’t they go through with it? Maybe because the young Jessica – like a lot of transgender people, she says, citing Caitlyn Jenner as another example – was adept at hiding her desires in furious, workaholic activity. First she collected stamps and insects, then began playing football and discovered that, “when I was on that field for 90 minutes, I’m not thinking about wanting to be a girl. It became my next obsession”. At 15, she was the youngest player on the No. 2 non-pro team in the whole country; she had four scholarship offers, and an invitation from the Olympic Committee to try out for the 1984 Games – “but it was a coping mechanism,” she says, shrugging sadly. Football gave way to the sign-painting business, and $100,000 a year as a young entrepreneur – “but it was another coping mechanism. To deal with this turmoil, I turned it to work. It was just my way of coping”.‘And what of sexuality?’ I ask, mindful of the fact that she’s been married twice – the first one a crazy, five-week marriage to “a beautiful, kind, screwed-up girl” when Jeffrey was going through a bad time, mourning a girl named Barbara who’d been killed in a car accident. Which sex was she attracted to?“Men,” she says firmly. “But I didn’t understand it. Young boys have their first wet dream, right? Mine was being with a boy – and I was a girl! And it did not make sense to me.”So how does she know she was transgender, and not a repressed gay man?“It’s a different feeling,” she replies – then pauses, trying to pinpoint the difference: “Most gay guys don’t want to be a woman… Later on, when I started experimenting with men, I would not be a man with a man. I had to be dressed as a woman. OK? And a man wasn’t allowed to touch my penis. OK?”That was in the 90s when she hung out at a club called The Queen Mary, a place with female impersonators in the front room and a back room for women like herself – “There’s a certain group of men who are attracted to transwomen; we call them ‘chasers’” – long before her transition but after the breakdown of her marriage to Rachel, mother of her three boys. The aforementioned Barbara, the love of her life as a teenager, was the first person she ever came out to, though of course – like Rachel, who also knew of the inner turmoil – she loved Jeffrey as a man. (Jessica was with her in the car when it was totalled; that was the first time she had to be brought back to life, the second being a suicide attempt years later.) As a man, she was always very attractive to women – even though she made no secret of her gender dysphoria, and couldn’t even get aroused half the time. Did the fluid, non-macho signals she emitted act as a turn-on – Rachel would pluck Jeffrey’s eyebrows and shave his legs, and teach him how to do his lipstick – or was it just a function of being dynamic as a person, and treating women as she’d like to be treated herself? Human sexuality is a complex thing.That’s not the way Judge Scott Becker of Collin County, Texas saw it – and we’re jumping ahead now, coming forward to 2012 when Jessica had already transitioned, shed her penis (though she emphasises that’s a personal choice, not a necessity) and started looking like she does now, sitting across the table at the Crown Inn. “I’ve had facial surgery,” she enumerates, “I’ve had the nose done. These are all fake teeth. I’ve had my upper lips shortened, I’ve had my lips plumped up”. She’s had rhinoplasty, septoplasty, vocal-cord surgery – “they cut my vocal cords in half, stretched them, made them thinner [and] took off 80 per cent of my voice box” – to transform the deep man’s voice she’d endured for 45 years. Maybe that’s why she did so much, because she’d waited so long: “For 45 years, I hated – hated – looking in the mirror and feeling my body, seeing my penis. I just dreamed for 45 years of being a female”.But we digress (it’s that kind of story). The relationship with Rachel flickered back to life even after the marriage was over, surviving on and off for about 18 years – and they were still living intermittently as a family even in 2012, years after a California judge had awarded Jeffrey full legal custody of the three boys. A complicated arrangement led to Rachel being in Texas with the kids while Jessica was completing her transition – but it turns out there are two stories here, not just the life of a transgender person but a story of family breakdown and legal shenanigans that’d be compelling even without any LGBT angle.Rachel sued in Texas (a state where judges can overrule a previous custody decision in another state), demanding the removal of Jessica’s parental rights with regard to Curtis, her youngest son. Ms. Lynn has “taken one of the most selfish acts a parent can take, changing her gender,” claimed the other side, and the judge – following a trial where everything was made as difficult as possible, possibly to the point of being discriminatory – firmly agreed, decreeing that Jessica should never again see her son and that her name be struck from his birth certificate. Devastated, she turned for help to a Texas law office run by a transgender judge, but was disappointed. “They said there’s not much you can do about it,” she says sadly. “They said ‘Go out there and start talking about it’, and that’s what I did. And that’s what brought me into speaking.”So here we are, six years and hundreds of speeches later, a story that’s now been told to thousands of people and may even (she says) become a movie, a deal being imminent with “a really known producer in California” – but also a significant story in other ways. A story of a life spent, maybe not in denial but certainly in distraction, looking for ways to dodge her constant feelings of self-loathing and dislocation: forays into alcoholism, cocaine addiction, suicide attempts, abortive relationships with the wrong gender. A story of an obsessive personality whose life revolved for years around a single, unspoken obsession – and now revolves around another, unsatisfied one. A story, too, of a transgender person who, for all her angst and “dark periods”, lived in a place that was generally sympathetic – then met the other, conservative America (“the Trump America,” as she puts it) and was instantly execrated. That’s the bigger, political story.This is not a political piece, which is probably just as well. Is it really true, as Jessica says, that “about 80 per cent of transgender people know by the time they’re five years old”? Do children so young have such a firm grasp on gender? Is it true, as she says, that a child should transition at a young age because, even if they change their minds later, you can just “stop the hormones, put the boy back on testosterone and he’s going to come back, 95 per cent [of the time], as a normal boy”? It’s important to know the facts on these issues – but of course other pundits spout the opposite views (which of course she dismisses as fake news), so who to believe? What do ‘man’ and ‘woman’ mean, anyway? (“Physically I feel comfortable in my body now. OK?” explains Jessica. “I like to look feminine. I like to wear heels, I like to look nice, I like to smell pretty. That’s my thing.”) The subject has become so politicised it’s almost intractable, at least for casual observers. Even the precise numbers of transgender people are up for debate: 0.3 per cent of the population according to UCLA, 1-2 per cent according to activists.Maybe; but the fact remains, indisputably, that transgender people exist – even in places where they tend to be invisible. “Coming here to the university yesterday, one of my first questions was: ‘How many people here know a transgender woman?’,” says Jessica. “Two classrooms yesterday, nobody raised their hand. I was in Ukraine, 100 students, nobody raised their hand. You go to California, everybody raises their hand! You go to New York, everybody raises their hand!” She chuckles briefly at the comparison. “But I know you have ’em!” she adds pointedly; “It’s not the water in California.” She’s right, of course – and her story can only open doors, even if she tells it partly to salve the pain of being deprived of her child, the latest twist in a packed, whirlwind journey. I leave her to it, sipping coffee and checking her phone as she waits for the next appointment.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

Advertisement Contact us at editors@timecomWashington: After a divisive campaign marked by fierce clashes over race immigration and other cultural issues Americans began casting votes on Tuesday to determine the balance of power in the US Congress and shape the future of Donald Trump’s presidency The first national elections since Trump captured the White House in a stunning 2016 upset will be a referendum on the polarizing Republican president and his hardline policies and a test of whether Democrats can turn the energy of the liberal anti-Trump resistance into victories at the ballot box "Everything we have achieved is at stake tomorrow" Trump told supporters on Monday night in Fort Wayne Indiana at one of his three rallies to stoke turnout on the last day before the election All 435 seats in the US House of Representatives 35 US Senate seats and 36 governorships are up for grabs on Tuesday in elections focused on dozens of competitive races from coast to coast that opinion polls show could go either way Democrats are favored by election forecasters to pick up the minimum of 23 House seats they need for a majority which would enable them to stymie Trump’s legislative agenda and investigate his administration Republicans are expected to retain their slight majority in the US Senate currently at two seats which would let them retain the power to approve US Supreme Court and other judicial nominations on straight party-line votes But at least 64 House races remain competitive according to a Reuters analysis of the three top nonpartisan forecasters and Senate control was expected to come down to a half dozen close contests in Arizona Nevada Missouri North Dakota Indiana and Florida Democrats also threaten to recapture governor`s offices in several battleground states such as Michigan Wisconsin Ohio and Pennsylvania a potential help for the party in those states in the 2020 presidential race In a last-minute controversy NBC Fox News and Facebook on Monday pulled an ad by Trump`s campaign that critics had labeled racist The 30-second spot featured courtroom video of an illegal immigrant from Mexico convicted in the 2014 killings of two police officers juxtaposed with scenes of migrants headed through Mexico Critics including members of Trump`s own party had condemned it as racially divisive CNN already had refused to run the ad saying it was "racist" Voter turnout could be the highest for a midterm election in 50 years experts predicted About 40 million early votes were likely cast said Michael McDonald a professor at the University of Florida who tracks the figures In the last such congressional elections in 2014 there were 275 million early votes FEARS OF IMMIGRANTS During a whirlwind six-day blitz to wrap up the campaign Trump repeatedly raised fears about immigrants issuing harsh warnings about a caravan of Central American migrants moving through Mexico toward the US border A debate about whether Trump`s biting rhetoric encouraged extremists erupted in the campaign`s final weeks after pipe bombs were mailed to his top political rivals allegedly by a Trump supporter who was arrested and charged and 11 people were fatally shot at a Pittsburgh synagogue But on the eve of the election the president said in an interview with Sinclair Broadcasting that he wished he had a softer tone during his first two years in office – even as he continued his relentless attacks on political rivals Trump blamed the political vitriol on election season "I`d love to get along and I think after the election a lot of things can happen" Trump said "But right now they`re in their mode and we`re in our mode" Many Democratic candidates in tight races shied away from harsh criticism of Trump focusing instead on bread-and-butter issues like maintaining insurance protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions and safeguarding the Social Security retirement and Medicare healthcare programs for senior citizens But Democratic former President Barack Obama hit the campaign trail in the election`s final days to challenge Trump questioning his policies and character "How we conduct ourselves in public life is on the ballot" Obama told Democratic volunteers in suburban Virginia who were working for Senator Tim Kaine and House candidate Jennifer Wexton who is challenging incumbent Republican Barbara Comstock
