John McCain Announces Opposition to Graham-Cassidy Bill

by Sarah McDarmont @ Affinity Magazine

Arizona Senator John McCain announced Friday that he will be voting against the Graham-Cassidy health care bill, likely barring its success. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal,” Sen. McCain stated. “I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried. Nor could I support it without knowing how much it would cost, how it will affect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it.” Republicans need at least 50 votes to pass their last-ditch effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, which is why McCain’s decision has been so highly anticipated. With Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) already expressing their opposition to the bill, Republicans could not afford to lose any more of their own party’s support. Many predicted McCain would oppose the bill because of his “no” vote in July that killed a previous ACA repeal attempt, while others expected his close relationship with one of the bill’s key sponsors, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), would sway him to support the bill. “I take no pleasure in announcing my opposition. Far from it,” McCain stated. “The bill’s authors are my dear friends, and I think the world of them. I know they are acting consistently with their beliefs and sense of what is best for the country. So am I.” “My friendship with John McCain is not based on how he votes but respect for how he’s lived his life and the person he is,” Graham tweeted Friday afternoon. My friendship with @SenJohnMcCain is not based on how he votes but respect for how he’s lived his life and the person he is. — Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) September 22, 2017 Arizona is one of many states that would receive less government money under the Graham-Cassidy bill than under the Affordable Care Act — likely a factor deterring McCain’s support. McCain has also previously explained that he would not support any health care legislation that has not gone through “regular order”; entailing Senate hearings, an amendment process and floor debate. Following McCain’s announcement, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer praised his decision, saying “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator. I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” President Donald Trump responded to McCain’s decision at a rally in Alabama on Friday, saying McCain’s choice to oppose the Graham-Cassidy bill is “honestly terrible.” Trump also stated he believes Sen. Rand Paul “may come around” and support the bill, despite Paul’s steadfast stance on the issue.

10 Years After Dove's 'Real Beauty' Campaign, More Brands Fight for Real Women

10 Years After Dove's 'Real Beauty' Campaign, More Brands Fight for Real Women


TakePart

It's been 10 years since Dove launched its “Campaign for Real Beauty”—a stark series of ads that were radical and simple in equal measure—featuring lovely, normal-sized women who didn’t need Photoshop to look radiant. The ads, which ran in 2004 and 2005, lacked any screed about the pressures that come with being a woman in a visual culture that’s awash in creatively lit, digitally manipulated images of dangerously thin models. The folks behind the campaign simply let us feel our own shock at seeing women with normal curves and natural faces being celebrated for their beauty in a national advertisement. Dove didn't stop there. The soap maker added rocket fuel to the conversation in 2006, when its time-lapse "Evolution" video went viral. The movement to expose marketers' use of trickery to convince us that we're failing if we don't have flawless skin and breathtaking bodies was here to stay. Significant progress has been made since Dove's campaign: The American public, the blogosphere, and the Twitterverse now routinely call out magazine publishers and marketers for digitally altering images of girls and women to shrink their bodies, smooth their faces, and otherwise morph them to fit an unrealistic, narrow ideal of beauty. The pace is quickening. In just the past few months, there's been even more progress and a few moments that drove the dialogue forward. 1. The more bare skin a campaign flaunts, the more Photoshop it typically gets. But American Eagle says its new campaign for the Aerie line of lingerie will not use any altered images of models. Instead, “real” girls and women can upload unretouched photos of themselves to a photo gallery. Sure, it’s pretty screwed up that selling underwear using real photos of gorgeous, skinny young girls (instead of digitally improved gorgeous, skinny young girls) is seen as groundbreaking. But moving away from the idealized versions of women who don't exist is a footstep Dove took, and the clothier is now following its lead. “It’s great that we’re beginning to break that down,” said Heather Arnet, executive director of the Women & Girls Foundation, of the fakeries that line the glossies. 2. Forever Yours Lingerie didn't stop working with model Elly Mayday when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last year. It featured beautiful shots of her with surgical scars unhidden and no wig or digital fakery to hide the baldness that resulted from her cancer treatment. Rather than looking like something’s missing, Mayday’s baldness comes across as strong and sexy. It’s empowering for the rest of us to see a woman outside the beauty mold we’ve been sold for so long—and to find ourselves aspiring to emulate her sexy confidence and appeal. (Forever Yours also gets points for raising money toward Mayday’s medical expenses.) 3. A new time-lapse video released by Hungarian pop star Boggie shows her singing a pop song called “Nouveau Parfum” while being Photoshopped, a fresh take on Dove's "Evolution" that's amplified by the resigned expression on her face. As the song unfolds, pieces of her disappear and are overwritten: Boggie’s eyes, like everyone else’s, aren’t exactly symmetrical. So one is deleted, then replaced by an exact copy of the other. Not a single square inch of her face or hair is left untouched. 4. Earlier last month during the Golden Globes, actor Diane Keaton took the stage to honor Woody Allen, her tousled hair and menswear-chic outfit reminding us of the trend she set when Annie Hall hit theaters in 1977. It was also clear on high-definition screens across America that at 68, she's got (oh, the horror!) lots of lines on her gorgeous face. When her speech ended, the network cut to a commercial break featuring Keaton selling L'Oréal cosmetics without a line on her digitally enhanced face, seemingly sporting the skin of a 25-year-old. Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook quickly lit up with scorn. That social media response is valuable, Arnet says, because younger women and girls are active on Instagram and Twitter and are participating in those conversations. 5. Former Cosmopolitan editor Leah Hardy drew attention for admitting that during her tenure the magazine routinely Photoshopped out the protruding bones of super skinny models to keep readers from seeing how emaciated the models really were. Since that admission surfaced, before-and-after comparisons of bone-thin models and their healthier-looking altered images have been popping up around the Web. Apparently the world’s top fashion magazines, despite the huge budgets at their disposal, cannot find a single woman on the planet who isn’t either too thin or too fat for their liking. It’s further reinforcement of the conclusion we’d love to share with every tween girl who’s just beginning to notice her appearance: The elusive “perfection” that every cosmetic company and clothing retailer is trying to sell you does not exist. 6. Mindy Kaling might not have minded, but many other people did: When Elle magazine published covers for its February 2014 issue featuring Kaling, readers and pundits immediately questioned why Kaling's cover was a black-and-white close-up rather than the full-color, full-body shots of the other (skinnier and more "conventionally" beautiful) actors. That's the key: We've begun to make a habit of questioning how women are depicted and what tools are being used to change or edit their appearance for public consumption. Yes, the visual landscape is still awash with altered images, surgically altered models, and the pressure to be thinner, younger, and closer to the narrow beauty ideal that so much marketing pushes on us. Marketers aren’t going to stop selling us

As Facebook Hands Over Russian-Linked Ads to Congress, Trump Calls Russia a Hoax and Attacks Clinton

by Lama Zaioor @ Affinity Magazine

The government has been investigating Russia’s role in the 2016 U.S. elections ever since Donald Trump became president. Facebook has now, following pressure from both Congress and the general public, decided to disclose the content of nearly 3,000 Russian-linked ads to contribute to the investigative effort. Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, despite his previous defensiveness about fake news on Facebook influencing the election results, released a statement outlining 9 measures Facebook will be working on over the next few months to minimize foreign meddling in national elections. Zuckerberg pledges to do his part “to ensure the integrity of free and fair elections around the world, but also to give everyone a voice and to be a force for good in democracy everywhere.” President Trump has denied all allegations that tie his election victory to Russian interference, so his revival of the “Russia hoax” label as a response to Facebook’s cooperation with Congress to prove Russian involvement in his campaign is no surprise. Trump took to Twitter to not only dissociate his victory from Russian investigation but also to attack his former running opponent, Hillary Clinton. The Russia hoax continues, now it’s ads on Facebook. What about the totally biased and dishonest Media coverage in favor of Crooked Hillary? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 22, 2017 The greatest influence over our election was the Fake News Media “screaming” for Crooked Hillary Clinton. Next, she was a bad candidate! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 22, 2017 Multiple advisors to the president, including Jon Huntsman, Trump’s nominee for ambassador to Russia, have agreed that there is no dissent on the question of whether the Russians interfered with the 2016 election. Trump being alone in his denial of Russian interference is only expected. Besides, why would he condemn the incident that helped put him in the White House? Photo: Gage Skidmore/ Flickr

Trump “Out of Bounds” With Sports Comments

by Marcus Cooley @ Affinity Magazine

In Donald Trump’s most recent instance of polarizing behavior, he interjects himself into yet another sphere of beloved American culture: sports. During a speech on Friday in Huntsville, Alabama, Trump scoffed at the silent protest that many National Football League players have made during the Star Spangled Banner at the beginning of games. In his speech, Trump calls for owners to “get that son of a b**** off the field” and goes on to say that “for a week [that owner would] be the most popular person in this country.” Colin Kaepernick, one of the most publicized players to kneel, hasn’t been able to sign a contract since the event in August of last year, and defended his protest by saying that he will not “stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner, responded in defense of his players Saturday morning. Goodell did not mention Trump specifically but said that “divisive comments” show “a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.” Through this statement, Goodell does well to recognize that these players are much more than players in the American social sphere. To many, they are icons and role models, and they hold much power in media through their words and actions on and off the field. Players being able to take this stand reaches demographics that might not be fully aware of racism or intolerance. New NFL statement pic.twitter.com/XHPgVvPPfH — Brian McCarthy (@NFLprguy) September 23, 2017 Trump’s attack on this expression of speech is toxic and unnecessary for a myriad of reasons. In what seems to be a recurring subject for his administration and campaign, Trump refuses to allow people who think differently retain their right to freedom of speech. He takes offense to men kneeling before the American flag but let’s slide the dangerous and arguably illegal speech of known white supremacists. Calling out the stance of Kaepernick and others is nothing but more evidence of the intolerance and one-sidedness of the Trump administration. Not only was this a show of intolerance, but this event had almost nothing to do with Trump. Let’s not forget that Kaepernick’s original kneel took place more than a year ago; why bring it up now? Trump’s decision to interject himself and exhume this conflict is confusing and almost childish. Many other athletes of color have joined Kaepernick’s stand of solidarity as well; including Stephen Curry, of the Golden State Warriors. Curry and the Warriors recently won the National Basketball Association Championship and were invited to the White House. Curry on Friday during the Warriors media day remarked, “I don’t want to go. That’s the nucleus of my belief,” regarding the invitation. Many of Curry’s teammates and even his coach, Steve Kerr, reiterated Curry’s feelings on the matter. Without fail, Trump had a response typed and tweeted out by Saturday morning; revoking his invitation because of “hesitation”.

Why Swaraj Needs Another Pair of Glasses

by Huda Z @ Affinity Magazine

Yesterday, India’s now-popular External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj stepped into the UN General Assembly podium and after a long session of praising her country for its supposed growth, she began to speak about Pakistan. Swaraj sees a lot of bad things in the country she debates against and asks, “Why is it that today India is a recognised IT superpower in the world, and Pakistan is recognised only as the pre-eminent export factory for terror?” She wants to point out the history of terrorist organizations that have risen their heads from Pakistan. She wants to talk about Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Hijbul Mujahideen and Haqqani Network. She wants to say that over the years, India has produced doctors, engineers and scientists while Pakistan has only exported terrorism. But she clearly sees too little. It’s right that many of these cursed terrorist organisations have unfortunately been born in Pakistan, but India was never out of the game. I think if Swaraj wants to see the history of Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Taiba this closely, she should also recongize Bajrang Dal and Abhinav Bharat. And yes, Kashmir; definitely Kashmir. What about the daily massacre of Muslims in the Indian occupied Kashmir and Srinagar where, just two days ago, Indian army opened fire on the civilians of Tral town just after a blast. This is not state-sponsored terrorism in the mind of Swaraj, but terrorist organisations that have no link and nothing to do with the government somehow are. Moreover, Swaraj wants to debate about the Kashmir matter being solved bilaterally, but she doesn’t (or doesn’t want to) see the continuous bloodshed, barbarism and molestation going on in Srinagar at the hands of the Indian army. She also wants to ignore India paying a deaf ear to the unanimous resolutions of the UN Security Council which mandate a UN-supervised plebiscite to enable the people of occupied Kashmir to freely decide their destiny. In all her efforts of blindly blaming Pakistan for exporting terrorism, she fails to see the efforts the country in question has made in order to get rid of it; for instance, operations like Rah-e-Nijat and Zarb-e-Azb, cleansing 96% of the terrorism from the North Waziristan area. Swaraj needs to know that during the time her country has “marched ahead consistently without pause” and made “doctors and engineers”, Pakistan hasn’t just sat there and made parathas and chai.  In all these years, Pakistan has gifted Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan, Dr Bashir A. Syed, Adeebul Hassan Rizvi, Abdul Sattar Edhi and countless others to the world.  But I won’t blame her for any of this. She just needs another pair of spectacles that enable her to see more clearly, because the existing ones aren’t good enough.

The Rampant Sexism in Scientific Fields Needs To Be Adressed

by Eva Kretsinger-Walters @ Affinity Magazine

Science has traditionally been considered a man’s field: most scientific achievements are accredited to men, and the best-known scientists are male. Physics is a particularly male-dominated field, and female physicists often experience bias, unequal opportunities and a lack of support. As female scientists become more accepted, however, their opportunities are slowly widening. But this does not mean that things will be equal between male and female scientists for a long time. The disparity in the experiences of male and female scientists is longstanding. There has always been a stigma against girls studying physics, likely in part due to the belief that women should stay home and to take care of children and do domestic work; and that, if women do, in fact, work outside the home, they are only capable of jobs less demanding than typically male professions. This social construct manifests in the many signals girls receive to the effect that science, especially physics, is more fit for boys. Girls in single-sex schools are two and a half times more likely to take physics than their co-educated counterparts. In English state co-educational schools, 49% of teachers did not send a single female student to study physics at A-level, according to a study conducted by the Institute of Physics. In addition, a study conducted by the American Institute of Physics Statistical Research Center demonstrated that women in physics comprised only 14% of the faculty and 20% of all undergraduate and graduate students. This suggests that the odds are stacked against a girl before she even contemplates pursuing physics. She has to battle her teacher’s disparaging attitudes and compete with her male counterparts to prove that she is just as worthy as they. She is practically alone in a field dominated by men. And if she does, against all odds, succeed in her field, she still has to wrestle the derogatory attitudes her equally-qualified male co-workers impose. Their sexism comes in many forms, from microaggressions to blatant trespasses. If she were to arrive at work looking put-together and sharp, especially if she were to sport makeup or jewelry, she would be accused of spending too much time of superficial matters and not dedicating enough attention to her duties as a physicist. This is simply a daily transgression that must be borne. Some infractions, however, are so severe that they threaten to diminish her entire career. For example, when women and men with equally impressive backgrounds and experiences were scored, the women generally scored lower in scientific competency. The few women who were equal in score to men had about three additional publications in prestigious scientific magazines. Harassment experienced by women in male-dominated fields (e.g., scientific ones) is a longstanding problem. According to a recent survey published by the American Astronomical Society’s Committee (AAS) that studied 426 female astronomers, the great majority of them claimed to be the victims of sexism: 82% had experienced sexists remarks, 57% had experienced verbal sexual harassment and 9% reported having been physically harassed. In response to these discouraging statistics, AAS created an anti-harassment policy for conferences in 2008, which was quickly adapted and adopted in other societies for their own meetings. Another survey published in 2004 by the Academic Field Experiences, which included 666 scientists, showed that many women felt pressure from male co-workers, usually leading to harassment and assault, mostly directed against early career women. There are many examples of sexual harassment, for example, an incident at Caltech, in which professor Christian Ott has now resigned after gender-biased harassment of two female students, as well as a situation at UC Berkeley, infi which several female students were harassed by an astronomy professor. The disparaging attitude towards women in physics is the result of many years of male domination in the field. Many men feel that women do not belong in a lab or a conference, and their resentment is amplified by a culture of turning a blind eye to sexual harassment and an overall sexist environment. Women’s unequal experience in science is also evident in the review of peer-reviewed journals, the cornerstone of scientific publishing. Peer-reviewed manuscripts are the essential currency of scientific advances due to the credibility afforded by an independent scientific review.  When researchers submit a manuscript to a journal, the journal selects independent subject matter experts to review the submission. Scientists are invited to peer review based on their scientific reputation and accomplishment.  A recent study produced by a group of scientists from all around the world (including scientists from Yale and the Max Planck Institute) found that women scientists (a small minority in science as it is) are under selected for these jobs, compared to their equally-qualified male counterparts. The phenomenon responsible for this is known as homophily. Those whom it affects experience a slight bias to those of the same sex. Because there are more males in the scientific community, there are more males producing scientific studies.The more males producing scientific studies, the more males experiencing homophily, which results in more males being given unwarranted bias. The effect of homophily is additionally more harmful when one takes into account the fact that 50% of men are likely to experience the phenomenon, compared to 10% of women. In short, it means that not only do males receive more unwarranted bias, their female counterparts are far more unlikely to receive some on their end to ‘make up’ for what the males are receiving. While the fields of physics and physical science are particularly guilty regarding sexism, in no is it way absent from social science fields. The recent publication of a senior thesis by Alice H. Wu, a student at the University of California, Berkeley, shocked the world when she investigated the difference in attitudes when male and female economists anonymously discussed other economists on the professional website Economics Job Market Rumors. In her research, she found that the words most frequently used by males when referring to fellow female economists are as follows (in order): ‘hotter’, ‘lesbian’, ‘bb’ (internet slang for ‘baby’), ‘sexism’, ‘tits’, ‘anal’, ‘marrying’, ‘feminazi’, ‘slut’, ‘hot’, ‘vagina’, ‘boobs’, ‘pregnant’, ‘pregnancy’, ‘cute’, ‘marry’, ‘levy’, ‘gorgeous’, ‘horny’, ‘crush’, ‘beautiful’, ‘secretary’, ‘dump’, ‘shopping’, ‘date’, ‘nonprofit’, ‘intentions’, ‘sexy’, ‘dated’ and ‘prostitute’. These results are especially shocking when compared to how female economists refer to men economists, as those words are neither degrading nor sexist; instead, the list includes words such as ‘mathematician,’ ‘textbooks’ and ‘pricing’. Widespread discrimination and harassment is pervasive in applied science (science, technology, engineering and mathematics [STEM]) fields as well, as demonstrated by the recent revelations by Susan Fowler regarding outright harassment, sexism and belittling treatment during her tenure as an engineer at Uber. While measures have been taken to improve the disparity between males and females in scientific fields, there is still a long way to go. Many cases of inequality and discrimination go unreported, and many occur so frequently that some do consider it commonplace. However, as more and more awareness on this issue is spread, things do tend to improve, and it is possible that at some point in the far future things will balance out and become equal. Until then, women will have to grit their teeth and bear the discrimination in order to ensure future generations of women in science a fair and equal experience. Photo Credit: U.S. Army photo

Trump on North Korea: Who Really “Won’t Be Around Much Longer”?

by Dana Chen @ Affinity Magazine

The growing issue surrounding President Trump and North Korea has just been magnified once again. On September 23rd, a 3.4 magnitude earthquake struck North Korea near its nuclear test site, causing speculative claims surrounding the possible detonation of another weapon designated to strike the United States. Even with the South Korean president stating that the “earthquake was natural and not from an explosion,” Trump has sparked more conflict with recent developments that the United States military has already flown bombers in international airspace over waters east of North Korea. According to both CNN and Fox News, “the Pentagon said B-1B bombers from Guam, along with F-15C Eagle fighter escorts from Okinawa, Japan, flew in international airspace over waters east of North Korea on Saturday.” It’s the farthest the United States has ever flown in the DMZ (demilitarized zone). Now with recent tweets such as this one, Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017 there are a lot of growing concerns about how the administration plans to counter the growing nuclear threat from Pyongyang. Not only is there an enormous threat of a nuclear attack imminent, Trump’s recent tweets, where he basically insults North Korea, are seen to be a “suicide mission.” “None other than Trump himself is on a suicide mission,” North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said in a speech at the UN General Assembly. “In case innocent lives of the US are harmed because of this suicide attack, Trump will be held totally responsible.” The conflict is sure to escalate even more: with Trump calling Kim Jung Un “Little Rocket Man” and Ri Yong Ho firing back by comparing Trump’s rhetoric to the “sound of a dog barking“; neither side is dialing down its insults. Americans are growing concerned: 62 percent of the public does not trust President Trump to act responsibly in handling the current situation. As well as that, 66 percent of the public believes the President has done more to divide the country rather unite it. Everything is up in the air: Ri has recently stated that North Korea is only a “few steps away from the final gate of completion of the state nuclear force,” which is not a really good sign for the United States. However, responding back, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White stated that the detonation of military B-1B bombers and F-15C Eagle fighters was necessary to show that “the President has many military options to defeat any threat.” Let’s hope President Trump knows what he’s doing.

Betsy DeVos Just Reversed a Policy That Could Hurt Millions of College Students

by Gabriella De Gracia @ Affinity Magazine

Every policy-making decision taken or announced by any member of the Trump regime seems to be indicative of us as a society taking 100 steps back into a dark and recessive past. A past where women were are stupid and just emotionally unbalanced by nature, where a racist is a cool thing to be, where the state of our planet doesn’t matter, and where the economy isn’t constantly on the brink of a recession Now added to the new list of ridiculous policies is a move rescinding a guideline put in place by the Obama administration that had been put in place to protect victims of sexual assault by the Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos. Her defense? It denied proper due process to those accused and ‘‘lacked basic elements of fairness.’’ Due process? The last thing we need for victims of sexual assault is further proof of a failing justice system. Where the women who experienced assault are put on trial more than the defendants themselves. Where they are interrogated and judged for how much they were drinking, the height of their hemlines, or their sexual history. As for ‘fairness’, the head of the department of education is run by a woman who has never attended a public school in her life and weaseled her way into politics by rubbing elbows with the biggest spoiled narcissist that has ever existed. She is now making policies that affect millions of students around the country. She just reversed Title IX, and in doing so, she just reversed years of progress made to combat sexual assault on college campuses.   This decision made by a bogus administration is putting the lives of thousands of young people at risk. Betsy DeVos a puppet for the president notorious for ‘grabbing women by the p*ssies’ is -like most things when it comes to this administration- disappointing but sadly, hardly surprising at all Not surprisingly, the only people coming to her defense are conservative-leaning organizations run by men. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, (I’ll admit it’s cleverly named, as it then becomes shortened to FIRE) are all for this new policy. “The campus justice system was and is broken, With the end of this destructive policy, we finally have the opportunity to get it right, ” said Robert Shibley, FIRE’s executive director. Do not be fooled, though. Several people are definitely not happy with this decision. Bernie Sanders and Kirsten Gillibrand were very vocal about their disapproval of this decision. This is a disgrace and a disservice to everyone who has worked to address sexual violence. Congress must act to undo this terrible decision. https://t.co/OcuJez0Gff — Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) September 22, 2017 “This is a disgrace and a disservice to everyone who has worked to address sexual violence. Congress must act to undo this terrible decision,” tweeted Sanders. Shameful. This decision will hurt and betray students, plain and simple. https://t.co/b2syuMM4ma — Kirsten Gillibrand (@SenGillibrand) September 22, 2017 Gillibrand, The New York Senator, also tweeted, “Shameful. This decision will hurt and betray students, plain and simple.”

Food Deserts in Atlanta, Georgia: Lack of Resources Causing a Humanitarian Crisis

by Madison Werner @ Affinity Magazine

For roughly the past three decades, debate has ensued over the validity of climate change and the extent to which humans play a role in destroying our own environment. In America specifically, moral emphasis has increasingly been placed on regulating the consumption of specific resources that contribute to our capitalist wealth, such as timber, oil and petroleum, and other resources that humans strip from the earth. While trying to minimize our use of these resources is necessary to ensure the longevity of both human and environmental health, many citizens, legislators, and environmentalist groups fail to recognize that access to healthy food is a resource that is widely unavailable to people in both urban and rural areas. I am from a rural area in northwest Georgia, and I lived in a food desert. The United States Department of Agriculture has concluded that food deserts exist in rural areas whenever a significant amount of people live more than ten miles away from the nearest fresh produce seller. Similarly, food deserts can be found in urban areas if roughly 500 people live over ½ a mile away from an adequate grocery store. Additionally, food deserts typically exist in low-income areas, where healthy fruits and vegetables are scarce, yet oftentimes foods with high sodium, sugar, and fat content can be found at a convenient store located on every block. My home was roughly twelve miles away from the nearest Kroger shopping center. Although I was easily able to go to the grocery store because my small hometown had adequate roadways, minimal traffic, and my family owned a car and could afford gas, oftentimes people are not granted the same privileges that I was given at birth. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, food deserts exist throughout the state of Georgia, with approximately “2 million Georgia residents, including about 500,000 children, liv[ing] in food deserts.” Food deserts are especially prevalent in the densely-populated Atlanta area, with over 35 food deserts existing within the Perimeter that I-285 encompasses (see USDA Food Access Research Atlas). Food deserts exist as an unfortunate byproduct of racism and classism, and Atlanta, Georgia, is a melting pot of these aforementioned negative characteristics. Therefore, the gentrified communities that scatter the inner-city southern metropolis are plagued with a more complex notion of what it means to be hungry. Aside from the social structures that have enabled the spreading and flourishing of food deserts, capitalism is a large contributor to the perpetuation of these communities’ nutritional deficiency. Large grocery store chains consider a myriad of factors when choosing their next location,and although communities that comprise food deserts would benefit the most from a store that sells fresh fruits and vegetables, large grocery store chains that are looking to maximize profit are often reluctant to start a business in what is usually a low-income area. Food deserts are typically not known in today’s society because many people fail to recognize that hunger is a legitimate problem within the United States. If Americans can begin to acknowledge that communities are suffering because of a lack of access to nutritious dietary options, then maybe steps can be taken to ensure that all humans have a right to adequate food.  

Happy 100th Birthday to Dr. Asima Chatterjee, an Indian Chemist Who Changed the Way the World Views Science

by Astha Sharma @ Affinity Magazine

Today, even Google Doodles celebrates the 100th birthday of Asima Chatterjee, an Indian organic chemist best known for her works on anti-malarial drugs. If you lived during the 1900’s-1950’s in India, you would know that not many girls even dreamed of pursuing careers in science, even girls today in India are forced by family members to just clean and get married, and studies were not important. However, Chatterjee has become a role model for many girls (and women) who want much, much more than what society tells them they’re supposed to do. Asima Chatterjee (née Mookerjee) was born on September 23, 1917, in Bengal, but grew up in Kolkata  She had received honors from the Scottish Church College and University of Calcutta. Chatterjee had done much research but was primarily focused on natural products chemistry, and created alkaloids for chemotherapy, anti-malarial, and anti-convulsants drugs. Later in life, she became the second woman (the first being Janaki Ammal) to be given a Doctorate of Science, by an Indian University and was in the Lady Brabourne College in the University of Calcutta. Organic sciences back in the 1900’s were not easy, it involved getting your hands dirty, and countless amounts of fails, and added the number of people telling her that she could never, it must have been an impossible task to conduct her experiments, but the doctor kept her head up, rightfully earning many achievements and forever changing the way world saw science. Asima was also well-known for her forty year long research on a naturally occurring compound called alkaloids, that are made of basic nitrogen atoms. Alkaloids are now often used for chemotherapy and to divide the cells in cancer patients. Other provisions to science by Chatterjee consist of the structure of ajmalicine and sarpagine, was the first person who considered stereo-configuration of sargpagine, calculated the actions of Lewis acids on coumarins, and so much more. She had also received many awards, being the first female to be awarded the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize for Science and Technology, became the first female scientist to be the General President of the Indian Science Congress Association, and was nominated by Zail Singh, the former President of India, to join the Rajya Sabha. Asima Chatterjee broke many barriers and expectations for girls in India, who had already been discouraged and led away from science, and we could never thank her enough for all her contributions — not only for science, but for people.

21 States Were Targeted By Russian Hackers During the 2016 Election

by Jade Lozada @ Affinity Magazine

On Friday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) informed 21 states that they were targeted by Russian hackers during the 2016 election. The DHS shared the news with those in “ownership” of voting systems, local offices or private vendors, in June, but chose to withhold the intelligence from state election officials. After months of uproar, in which many officials complained that they needed to know how to secure their systems for future elections, the top election official of each state was notified as to whether their election systems had been breached. Among those targeted were Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Washington, according to the Associated Press, with California, Oregon, and Wisconsin releasing the news themselves. Hackers failed to affect voting tallies in any way and infiltrated only two state systems, those of Illinois and Arizona, as of information currently available. Concerning the latter, the username and password of one Gila county official were stolen, but the system was not compromised. In Illinois, however, up to 90,000 voter records were breached in early July 2016, giving hackers access to names, dates of birth, driver’s licenses and partial Social Security numbers of 15 million people. The security protocols of the remaining states proved successful in protecting computer systems from attack. As Wisconsin Elections Commission spokesman Reid Magney put it, “What this boils down to is that someone tried the door knob and it was locked.” California Secretary of State Alex Padilla echoed the grievances of dozens of other officials when he said in a statement, “It is completely unacceptable that it has taken DHS over a year to inform our office of Russian scanning of our systems, despite our repeated requests for information.” The practice of withholding critical information from election officials is a detriment to the security of our elections and our democracy. In January, Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced that states would soon be given federal assistance in protecting their election and voter systems. This was recently followed by the preparation of a 28-member coordinating council with the purpose of sharing and receiving security intelligence and assistance. Three of the members will be from the federal government, twenty-five from the state and local level. Moreover, top election officials from each state are obtaining security clearances to receive classified information on threats to the voter system.  Photo: By Tom Arthur from Orange, CA, United States (vote for better tape) [CC BY-SA 2.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons
