"flawed forensic hair matches might have led to possibly hundreds of wrongful convictions for rape, murder, and other violent crimes, dating back at least to the 1970s."

Mirabella - at least you know what she's really like.
 
A rare incite into the quality of the people the conservatives put forward to represent us.
We do not believe Ms Mirabella is fit to represent the people of Indi.

The home of democracy in...well...let's start that sentence again.
 
The only democracy where poems are seen as Incitement

Dareen Tatour has long dreamed of seeing her poems translated from Arabic into other languages — so that they reach people across the world. One of her poems has indeed been translated recently, but not in the way she had hoped.

A Hebrew version of “Resist, my people, resist them” was read aloud by an Israeli police officer at a Nazareth court hearing on 13 April. Tatour has been charged with incitement to violence based on the contents of that poem, the Arabic original of which is available on YouTube.

Although the poem urges resistance to Israel, it does not call for specific acts of violence. Rather, it draws attention to violent attacks on Palestinians by Israelis.

The incidents include the arson attack that killed the 18-month-old baby Ali Dawabsha and his parents in Duma, a village in the occupied West Bank, last year; the killing of 18-year-old Hadil Hashlamoun by Israeli soldiers in Hebron, also last year; and the kidnapping and murder of 16-year-old Muhammad Abu Khudair in Jerusalem during 2014.

Tatour was arrested in October last. After spending three months in prison, she was placed under house arrest in January. She is confined to an apartment in a suburb of Tel Aviv.

“It is ironic, but not surprising, that I was sent to jail for protesting the killing of my people whereas actual Israeli killers roam free,” Tatour told us.

While many Palestinians have been recently charged with incitement to violence because of statements they’ve made on the Internet, particularly on Facebook, Tatour’s case is unusual because she is being prosecuted over a poem.

I did get a 98yo to appendectomy. I was not going to discriminate against her based on her age. She did fine, made it past 100. If drought from global warming kills 90% of Midwesterners and some S Californians, evolution happens. What the heck.

This is just a strange and weird thing to write.
 
Internet justice is a swift and cruel bitch. Less than 48 hours after posting her thoughts on why Harriet Tubman should not be on US currency, Carla Bramlett, Lifestyle Coach pushing whole foods, has erased her Facebook profile, as well as her LinkedIn business page, and is probably scouring the Interwebs to expunge any other proof that she ever existed. Her post did make me wonder, however, whether Ms. Bramlett was a Christian. That would have been wonderfully ironic given that Jesus was a convicted criminal sentenced to death.

We were referred to Rita by a close friend when we had our first child. I had bad experiences with dentists as a child and we wanted our child (then later plural - children) to have a different experience. I also wanted to try to overcome my anxiety about them too. We have been going to see Rita regularly for the past 11 years, so I think this is long enough to form a strong and experience-based opinion. The clerical and dental staff are fantastic. Seriously friendly and helpful. Always willing to sort things out and work with you if you need to make appointment changes or your private health care card stops working! I've had a few emergencies over the years and the same is true. They will do whatever they can to get you in as soon as possible. Rita is gorgeous. She is sooooooo lovely. I can honestly say that I would sweat blood when I thought I had to see a dentist. I avoided them regardless of the problems I had. Rita has been instrumental in helping me to no longer find the process anxiety provoking or fear inducing. My heart no longer races at the thought of going to the dentist and I no longer avoid going. If you have any anxiety in relation to dentists, Rita she is the person to see. My wife, who has no 'dentist phobia' also sees Rita and we've been very pleased with everything she and the staff have done for us. Our three children enjoy going to the dentist for their regular check up and look forward to telling Rita and the other staff about the things that have transpired since their last visit. Here is are two specific example of our experiences: It appeared that our eldest child would likely need a dental plate to manage a problem with the growth of her upper palate. Rita told us that she'd keep track of what was happening. Finally she referred us to a specialist who didn't charge us at all - he said he wanted to wait at least a year to make sure any work was necessary! When it was determined that some intervention was necessary, the same specialist and his staff provided the level of consideration, friendliness and expertise that we experience from Rita and the staff at Balmain. Fantastic. Two years ago, I was experiencing extremely serious neuralgia. Rita referred me to a specialist who has published and presented work on the subject. In addition he was very, very friendly and supportive. In summary, it's not only that Rita and the staff at Balmain are very kind, friendly and highly competent but that if you need to be referred on, you are referred on to people who are similarly kind, very friendly and highly competent. I cannot recommend Rita and the staff at Balmain any more highly. At times I'm reluctant to refer people to her purely for selfish reasons - the more people know how good she is, the more people will see her and the harder it will be for US when we want to change our appointment times :)
