On June 21, 1964, three civil rights activists – Michael Schwerner, James Chaney and Andrew Goodman – disappeared in Mississippi. They were working as part of the Mississippi Freedom Summer, registering black people to vote.

Less than 7% of black Mississippians were registered to vote. They were denied the right to vote because of fake literacy tests, intimidation and violence. It was simple voter suppression.

Schwerner and Goodman were white, Jewish and from New York. Chaney was black and originally from Mississippi. All three were in their twenties. Schwerner was married.

A deputy sheriff arrested them outside of Philadelphia, Mississippi, and took them to the Neshoba County Jail. Chaney was charged with speeding. The other two have been retained for investigation.

They were released around 10 p.m., after the local Ku Klux Klan was tipped off and were able to stage a lynching. The same deputy sheriff who took them to jail followed them after they were released.

He arrested them again and this time delivered the three to a gang of Klansmen on Rock Cut Road, where they were shot.

Their bodies were buried in a dam under construction at Old Jolly Farm. The land belonged to Olen Burrage, one of the wealthiest men in Neshoba County.

FBI field agents searched for the three men. Eventually they got a tip on where the bodies were buried.

Finally, after 44 days, their bodies were dug up.

Mississippi state authorities declined to bring murder charges against any of the Klan members. But in 1967, the federal government brought charges of civil rights violations against 18 Klan members.

Only seven Klansmen have been convicted and no one has served more than six years in prison.

Then, in 2005, in a very different racial and political climate, a Neshoba County grand jury indicted Edgar Ray Killen, a minister who helped organize the lynching, on three counts of murder. He was convicted and sentenced to 60 years in the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman.

Killen died in prison in 2018, just before his 93rd birthday.

The murders of Schwerner, Chaney, and Goodman spurred passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant achievements of the civil rights movement.

It is important for us to remember that these three men were in Mississippi, working to make voting accessible to people who were denied the right to vote.

Efforts to stop voter suppression, however, are not relegated solely to the events of half a century ago.

It is also a battle for today.

The Brennan Center for Justice, named after the late Supreme Court Justice William Brennan, reports, “Since the 2020 election, the nation’s voting systems have come under unprecedented attack from multiple angles. Laws that make it more difficult to vote, Laws that sabotage the electoral process. Threats and harassment directed against election officials. Extreme racial and partisan manipulation.

Let’s be clear about voter suppression. It is not a bipartisan movement.

Friday the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that guaranteed constitutional protection for women’s reproductive rights. Our comment comes from Carol Sanger, a professor at Columbia Law School:


The lives of women of childbearing age in the post-Roe era are about to be played out by tough new rules.

For the past 50 years, American women have been safe within the protections of Roe v. Wade, a name recognized around the world. Roe argued that the constitutional right to privacy included a woman’s right to choose abortion.

It was a good time. Women could shape their reproductive lives depending on when they got pregnant, how many children they had, or who they wanted to have children with.

But those days are over.

Carol Sanger, Columbia law professor.

CBS News

Friday, in a case called Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the current court overturned Roe. What used to be a common medical procedure is now, in various states across the country, a felony, subject to oversight and prosecution like other crimes.

This brings new uncertainties: can a state prohibiting abortion punish women who travel to a legal state for the procedure? Can a woman receive abortion pills in the mail? And who should be punished for violating the abortion ban? Doctors? The women themselves? Or, as in Texas, anyone helped at all?

Dobbs also invites a new era of female shaming. The stigma felt by some women under Roe will intensify: it is no longer a question of pretending that they are merely exercising a protected right.

Poor women in particular will face the calamity of unwanted pregnancies, with greater expense, distance and logistics.

But here, poor women are not alone. All women are now faced with the imminent removal of an established and precious right, affecting the most intimate aspects of family life.

In the 230 years since the adoption of the Bill of Rights, American women have worked hard to expand our rights as women. Now a big one that women have relied on for nearly 50 years has been taken away.

Dublin, June 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Air Cargo Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunities and Forecast 2022-2027” report has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The global air cargo market reached a value of US$270.3 billion in 2021. Going forward, the market is expected to reach a value of US$390.7 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 5 .80% in 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, the analyst continuously monitors and assesses the direct and indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use sectors. This information is included in the report as a major market contributor.

Air freight, also known as airfreight, is a mode of transportation used to deliver high-speed shipments via charter or commercial air carriers. It can be delivered worldwide as goods sent from shippers to consignees or from sellers to buyers. Moreover, it is managed throughout the chain by numerous entities, such as express carriers, air and postal operators, regulated agents, carriers and ground handlers, with varying responsibilities. Today, air cargo is helping to contribute to economic development around the world.

Air Cargo Market Trends

Air freight is used to deliver non-perishable goods such as jewelry, clothing, auto parts, and perishable goods including fruits, vegetables, and meat, which require prompt delivery. Furthermore, it plays a crucial role in the distribution of vaccines with a well-established temperature-sensitive distribution system and state-of-the-art technology and procedures. This, in confluence with the booming aviation industry, is bolstering the growth of the market.

In addition, other modes of transport, such as sea, rail or road transport, usually take days or weeks to deliver different items. However, transporting goods by air freight saves time and offers a high level of security. It also requires less packaging than other shipping methods to reduce the weight limit. This coupled with the growing popularity of consolidated air cargo services is positively influencing the market.

Apart from this, major players are increasingly focusing on geographic expansions and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) to expand their customer base. This, coupled with the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) into the air cargo supply chain and the increase in imports and exports of goods in many countries of the world, facilitates the growth of the market.

Security personnel outside Patna station after several trains were canceled due to protests against the Centre’s ‘Agnipath’ program, in Patna on Sunday, June 19, 2022. (PTI)

The Agnipath program provides for the recruitment of young people aged 17.5 to 21 for only four years, with the possibility of retaining 25% of them for an additional 15 years. A few days later, the government extended the upper age limit to 23 for recruitment in 2022. Staff to be recruited under the new scheme will be known as ‘Agniveers’.

Under the new program, about 45,000 to 50,000 soldiers will be recruited each year, and most will leave the service in just four years. Of the total number of annual recruits, only 25% will be allowed to continue for another 15 years under permanent commission. The move will make standing force levels much leaner for the country’s over 13 lakh strong armed forces. This will significantly reduce the defense pension bill, which has been a major concern of governments for many years.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the decisions and reforms might be unpleasant temporarily, but over time the country would benefit. Modi has kept silent about the violent protests. During a speech at an event, he said: “It is the misfortune of our country that many good things brought in with good intentions are trapped in political colors. The media is also dragged into it due to their TRP compulsions.” Highlighting the achievement of the ‘dual engine’ government and the pace of development under it, he today sought the blessings of the people of the state for it, calling it ‘the greatest strength’.

As violence against Agnipath’s recruitment program escalated on Friday, rail services across the country were disrupted, with nearly 300 rail services impacted by service cancellations, short disruptions and diversions .

The change in train schedules due to ongoing student protests across the country has impacted thousands of passengers who use the railways for general travel but are now stuck.

The disruption of services has continued for three days, even after the Center relaxed the age criteria for short-term recruitment of Agniveers into the armed forces.

According to the railways, around 316 train services were impacted up to 4:30 p.m. Friday. This included 80 express mail trains and 134 passenger trains canceled, 61 express mail trains and 30 passenger trains partially canceled, 11 express mail trains diverted.

The East Central and Northeast Railways were the hardest hit by the disruptions. These sections faced maximum disruption throughout the day on Friday. The railways said every effort was being made to contain service disruptions and restore normalcy.

The unrest also caused damage to railway property. The railways have not yet estimated the extent of the loss. Reports said protests broke out at Secunderabad railway station allegedly by army candidates, a bogie was set on fire and property was vandalized. However, the situation was quickly brought under control.

Demonstrations erupted across the country against the Agnipath Armed Forces Recruitment Scheme announced by the government on Wednesday. The scheme provides for a short recruitment of four years for students who would be called Agniveers during the selection.

HALLE WESTFALEN, June 16 — Nick Kyrgios was embroiled in a heated argument with the referee over a time violation before pulling himself together to defeat world number six Stefanos Tsitsipas 5-7 6-2 6-4 and qualify for the ATP quarter-finals. 500 Halle Open on Wednesdays.

The unstable Aussie received a warning for taking too long to return Tsitsipas’ serve as he trailed 2-0 in the second set and then summoned the supervisor to express his displeasure.

“He said I was playing too slow – statistically I’m one of the quickest,” Kyrgios told reporters after reaching his second straight quarter-final following his last four appearances in Stuttgart last week.

“I had to walk the sidelines to get my towel, there’s this thing called 30 degree Celsius sweat running down your hands. I needed to wipe my hands and he gave me a warning. The 27-year-old added that the crowd at the OWL Arena helped him improve his game after dropping the opening set to claim a third career victory over Greece’s Tsitsipas and continue his impressive run towards Wimbledon.

“The support I get from crowds all over the world is amazing. They want me to come out and put on a show,” he said.

“I’m happy to still be able to produce this level with the tournaments I play. It’s proof that I work hard when I’m not playing. Kyrgios, who is not seeded, will face Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta on Thursday. —Reuters

Here are five iOS 16 features that Apple “borrowed” from Google and Android.

New lock screen experience

One of the most talked about features of iOS 16 is the new lock screen customization experience that lets you add widgets for a quick lock screen preview. These include the weather, the battery status of your AirPods, upcoming calendar events, and more. The new lock screen on iOS 16 looks fantastic, but it’s a feature that debuted on Android in 2012 with the launch of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. In fact, Google has allowed users to add a clock, calendar, and other items to the lock screen. With Android 5.0, Google removed this feature, but Samsung OneUI still offers preset lock screen widgets. Suffice to say that Apple was strongly inspired by Google for a smarter lock screen.

translate camera

Once iOS 16 becomes widely available, iOS users may find it easier to translate text from images captured through the iPhone camera app. All they have to do is open the Camera app and then point it at the text to be translated. Hardcore Android users will instantly recognize this feature available through the Google Translate app, allowing you to point your camera at text for overlaid translation in the live viewfinder. Although Apple is finally bringing this feature to iOS users, it is limited in nature. Basically, the Translate feature takes a photo and then overlays a translation over some text in the captured image.

Auto-share in photos

A highly requested feature in iOS 16 that users have wanted for a very long time is shared photo libraries. Finally, Apple has made it easy to set up a separate Photo Library that up to five people can use, thanks to iCloud Shared Photo Library. For those unaware, Google has had Shared Libraries since 2017. So Apple’s iCloud Shared Photo Library feature was taken straight from Google’s Page Book, minus a few tweaks here and there. iCloud’s Shared Photo Library feature can be shared with up to five other people, and each contributor has access to add, edit, bookmark, caption, and delete photos . By comparison, Google Photos allows “unlimited” contributors to an album, but you can also use the Partner Sharing feature which limits sharing your library with just one person.

Live captions

Another feature that arrived on iOS 16 but is already available on Android is Live Captions. Apple said Live Captions can transcribe any audio content — FaceTime calls, video conferencing apps or in-person conversations — into English on iPhone, iPad and Mac. Google started offering live captioning features with the release of Android 10 and is now available in English on Pixel 2 and later devices. It’s good to see Apple finally catching up with Google and bringing live captions to a lot of people.

Cancel/schedule sending emails

iOS 16 will allow people to schedule your email and unsend it. This is something Google first added in Inbox, an experimental alternative to Gmail. Unfortunately, Google killed the Inbox Inbox app in 2019. Either way, you’ll be able to use the same features with iOS 16’s built-in Mail app. For iPhone Mail app users, the possibility to schedule the sending of emails in advance and the possibility of canceling the sending of an email in case of need (you will only have 10 seconds to cancel the email sent ) make Apple’s native mail app competitive with rivals like Gmail.

US Customs Seize Counterfeit Brand Watches at Port of Louisville Worth $22.5 Million https://artbydepaola.com/us-customs-seize-counterfeit-brand-watches-at-port-of-louisville-worth-22-5-million/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 13:22:45 +0000 https://artbydepaola.com/us-customs-seize-counterfeit-brand-watches-at-port-of-louisville-worth-22-5-million/ More than 90% of all counterfeit seizures made by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) occur in international mail and express shipping environments.

More than 90% of all counterfeit seizures made by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) occur in international mail and express shipping environments. Last week, CBP officers in Louisville seized a package containing counterfeit brand name watches that, if real, would have had a manufacturer’s retail price (MSRP) of more than $22.5 million.

The 584 counterfeit watches bore two brand logos: Rolex and Cartier. The shipment was from an individual in Hong Kong and was destined for a resident of Jamaica, New York. If these watches had been real, the MSRP would have been $22.59 million.

“Intellectual property theft threatens America’s economic vitality and funds criminal activity and organized crime,” said LaFonda D. Sutton-Burke, director, Field Operations-Chicago Field Office. “Our officers are dedicated to protecting private industry and consumers by removing these types of shipments from our commerce.”

E-commerce sales have contributed to the import of large volumes of small, low-value packages into the United States. Over the past four fiscal years, seized counterfeit watches have been worth the most according to their MSRP – last year, that total was $1.18 billion. Consumers should ensure that they buy online from reputable sources. To learn more about CBP’s e-commerce strategy, visit the CBP e-commerce website.

“Consumers are always looking for the best deal, the unfortunate thing is that criminals are also pedaling their counterfeit products online,” said Louisville Port Manager Thomas Mahn. “Our CBP officers will continue to seize counterfeit items that threaten consumer health and safety and weaken the U.S. economy.”

This seizure was just one of many seizures that occurred that night. Another package contained six counterfeit Richard Millie watches that would have been worth $755,000 if they had been genuine.

Sold in underground outlets and on third-party e-commerce websites, counterfeit products fund smugglers and organized crime members. Consumers often believe they are buying a genuine product, but quickly realize the item is substandard and potentially dangerous.

The trade in counterfeit and pirated goods threatens American innovation, the competitiveness of our businesses, the livelihoods of American workers, and in some cases the health and safety of consumers and the national security of the United States. CBP is at the forefront of intellectual property rights (IPR) enforcement, partnering with industry, other federal agencies, and foreign governments to combat the cross-border trade of harmful and dangerous illicit goods.

When rights holders register their federally registered trademarks and copyrights with CBP, the agency can enforce those rights to protect them at the border. As of September 30, 2021, CBP enforced 20,758 active registered copyrights and trademarks. In fiscal year 2021, CBP seized more than 27,000 shipments with IPR violations. If the seized products were genuine, the total MSRP of the items would have been valued at over $3.3 billion. This represents a 152% increase from FY20, when goods worth MSRP $1.31 billion were seized for IPR infringement. A return to pre-pandemic trade levels and an overall increase in the number of counterfeit product seizures by CBP account for the significant increase in MSRP.

CBP conducts operations at ports of entry across the United States and routinely screens arriving international passengers and cargo for narcotics, weapons, and other restricted or prohibited items. CBP strives to be the premier law enforcement agency improving the nation’s safety, security, and prosperity through collaboration, innovation, and integration.
