California Lawmakers Want Pr0n Stars to Wear Safety Goggles
California's workplace safety guardians have proposed an amendment to a bill that would require porn stars to wear protective goggles while filming.
I was thinking of Googling a humorous cartoon or image to illustrate this post. Then I realized, I'm at work, my access is likely monitoring, and even I don't want to see the images that Google might return...
The bill, which has so far stalled in the state senate, establishes numerous mandates for the porn industry to follow with the goal of curbing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Among these mandates is the requirement that "personal protective equipment" be used to "prevent contact of an employee's eye, skin, mucous membranes, or genitals with the blood or OPIM-STI of another." (OPIM-STI includes pre-ejaculate, semen, vaginal secretions, and fecal matter.)

#2  People getting paid for participating in sex acts...isn't that kinda like, well, the oldest profession? Dunno if I can use that word on Rantburg. So are they gonna regulate the oldest profession? No, because that'd mean they'd have to legalized it and we haven't declined that far...yet. But somehow pr0n is different. Must be something to do with money and where it's going.

Africa Subsaharan
Nigeria Police Break up anti-Corruption Meet
[An Nahar] Police in Nigeria's capital on Tuesday blocked an anti-corruption meeting by sealing off the hotel conference room where activists had planned to gather, a rights group and a hotel employee said.

Crackdowns on civil society organizations, common in some African countries, have become rare in Nigeria in recent years.

The meeting scheduled at Nicon Luxury Hotel in Abuja had been partly organized by Dino Melaye, a former politician turned activist who has called for the resignation of a cabinet member accused of illegally procuring two armored vehicles worth $1.4 million (870,000 euros).

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), one of Nigeria's leading rights groups, condemned "reports that a detachment of heavily armed Nigerian coppers were today sent to seal off the Nicon Luxury Hotel" suite where the meeting had been scheduled.

An AFP news hound saw roughly a dozen officers and two police vehicles positioned outside the venue on Tuesday afternoon.

A hotel employee, who requested anonymity, said the police made clear when they arrived that they were instructed to break up the meeting.

National police front man Frank Mba and Abuja police spokeswoman Altine Daniel said they had no knowledge of the operation.

SERAP said the meeting's theme was Nigeria's freedom of information law and had scheduled speakers from Europe, the United States and Nigeria.

Melaye's Anti-Corruption Network last month staged a protest in Abuja calling for the resignation of Aviation Minister Stella Oduah, who has been accused of illegally purchasing armored vehicles with public money.

There was no indication that Tuesday's move by the police was linked to Melaye's campaign against Oduah, a close ally of President Goodluck Jonathan
... 14th President of Nigeria. He was Governor of Bayelsa State from 9 December 2005 to 28 May 2007, and was sworn in as Vice President on 29 May 2007. Jonathan is a member of the ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP). He is a lover of nifty hats, which makes him easily recognizable unless someone else in the room is wearing a neat chapeau...

DR Congo, M23 rebels fail to sign peace deal
[Pak Daily Times] Talks over a peace deal between the Democratic Republic of the Congo
...formerly the Congo Free State, Belgian Congo, Zaire, and who knows what else, not to be confused with the Brazzaville Congo aka Republic of Congo, which is much smaller and much more (for Africa) stable. DRC gave the world Patrice Lumumba and Joseph Mobutu, followed by years of tedious civil war. Its principle industry seems to be the production of corpses. With a population of about 74 million it has lots of raw material...
and defeated M23 rebels have failed, in a setback to international efforts to stabilise the African nation's conflict-prone east.

The peace negotiations failed after Kinshasa demanded changes to the agreement, officials said.

The "DRC delegation has aborted the signing of agreement with M23," Ugandan government front man Ofwono Opondo said Monday, adding that their meeting in Uganda was adjourned without a new date being scheduled.

The M23 rebels, one of many gangs operating in the mineral-rich but impoverished east of the DR Congo, have been routed by the national army, who are backed by a 3,000-strong special UN intervention brigade.

Seemingly abandoned by their sponsors due to international pressure, the M23 announced last week that their 18-month insurgency was over.

Despite the failure of the talks, DR Congo Foreign Affairs Minister Raymond Tshibanda said Kinshasa was committed to peace.

"We have been engaged in this process for several months now... We have encountered some difficulties over issues important to us, and we think that these difficulties can be removed before finalising the process," he said.

The failure to sign a deal will disappoint many, with the UN special envoy to the Great Lakes, Mary Robinson, telling AFP that signing the accord would be "a very important step for peace".

A joint statement released by Robinson and Martin Kobler, the UN Secretary-General's Special Representative in the DRC, voiced regret that Kampala Dialogue had not been concluded but noted that the parties involved "expressed no differences on substantive points within the draft document".

The statement, also signed by African Union
...a union consisting of 53 African states, most run by dictators of one flavor or another. The only all-African state not in the AU is Morocco. Established in 2002, the AU is the successor to the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), which was even less successful...
and EU officials, urged all involved to resolve their differences and " remain committed to a peaceful settlement of the conflict."

The signatories emphasised that any solution must allow the pursuit of war criminals.

Delegations from both Kinshasa's government and the rebels arrived Monday evening at Uganda's State House in Entebbe, a town close to Kampala on the shores of Lake Victoria, where the rebels had been expected to formalise the end of their rebellion in writing.

Bangladesh
Khaleda to face trial for killings
[Bangla Daily Star] Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina
...Bangla dynastic politician and current Prime Minister of Bangladesh. She has been the President of the Bangla Awami League since the Lower Paleolithic. She is the eldest of five children of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the founding father of Bangla. Her party defeated the BNP-led Four-Party Alliance in the 2008 parliamentary elections. She has once before held the office, from 1996 to 2001, when she was defeated in a landslide. She and the head of the BNP, Khaleda Zia show such blind animosity toward each other that they are known as the Battling Begums..
yesterday warned that opposition leader Khaleda Zia
Three-term PM of Bangla, widow of deceased dictator Ziaur Rahman, head of the Bangla Nationalist Party, an apparent magnet for corruption ...
would have to face trial for killing more than 20 people during hartal
... a peculiarly Bangla combination of a general strike and a riot, used by both major political groups in lieu of actual governance ...
hours.

"By the grace of Allah, the trial of those killings will be held," she said, adding that the opposition leader has to take the responsibility for the killings.

Addressing a mammoth rally at Kotalipara in Gopalganj, the premier also expressed her apprehension that the opposition leader might try again to kill her.

"She [Khaleda] wants a Hasina-free Bangladesh, she failed to kill me earlier ... she might try again to kill me," Hasina said.

The opposition leader killed more than 24 Awami League leaders and activists through grenade attacks on August 21, 2004, and she is now killing people by imposing shutdowns and setting fire to vehicles, the premier said.

"We came to power with a majority and then we amended the constitution ... We have sealed the scope of grabbing power illegally," she told the rally at Bhangarhat Talimpur Telihati High School ground.

Hasina also said the opposition leader did not want to participate in the election as she would not be able to rig polls this time. She [Khaleda] never liked free, fair and neutral elections.

Referring to her recent phone conversation with the opposition leader, the Awami League chief said she made the phone call thinking about people's welfare.

"I invited her [Khaleda], but she rejected. She enforced hartals instead and killed 20 people during the shutdowns," the premier said.

She also sought vote for the Awami League (AL) in the next election to complete the unfinished development works of her government.

Caribbean-Latin America
Colombia Accuses FARC of Plot to Kill ex-President Uribe
[An Nahar] Colombia accused the leftist FARC guerrilla group Tuesday of plotting to kill former president Alvaro Uribe, a vehement critic of peace talks with the rebels.

The accusation comes as the present Colombian government is engaged in delicate peace talks with the rebels, and it was not immediately clear what effect it would have on negotiations.

Defense Minister Juan Carlos Pinzon said he had met with Uribe "to inform him of the detection of a plan by the FARC's Teofilo Forero Mobile Column to make an attempt on his life."

Pinzon said President Juan Manuel Santos ordered authorities "to guarantee the security and integrity of the former head of state and protect him, as well as to get those responsible for these threats."

Uribe told news hounds in Bogota he would be more careful about his movements in the future, but added: "You have to stay in the fight."

Uribe, now 61, waged a fierce war against the FARC during his presidency from 2002 to 2010, reducing Colombia's largest leftist rebel group by half and confining it to remote areas of the country.

After leaving office, he split bitterly with Santos, his former defense minister and successor, for trying to make peace with the rebel group and for mending relations with neighboring Venezuela.

Details of the plot against Uribe were not disclosed and it was not immediately apparent what impact they might have on the peace talks, which mark their first anniversary on November 19.

The president of the Congress, Juan Fernando Cristo, said the news was "very serious" but reserved judgment on the fallout.

"We have to await the details, what kind of attack or plot was involved. But if it is confirmed, we have to demand that the (FARC) negotiators in Havana explain it to the country," he said.

The Teofilo Forero Column is considered one of the FARC's most active units.

The Colombian army created a special task force November 1 to go after it and capture its leader, a guerrilla known as "El Paisa" who has a $700,000 bounty on his head.

Daring to Complain About Obamacare
We will be seeing a lot of these reports in days to come as leftist pukes like this female realizes that sometimes a leftist agenda means you will pay out the nose for it, with your own money.

From the The Other Perfesser...

THE Anthem Blue Cross representative who answered my call told me that there was a silver lining in the cancellation of my individual P.P.O. policy and the $5,400 annual increase that I would have to pay for the Affordable Care Act-compliant option: now if I have Stage 4 cancer or need a sex-change operation, I'd be covered regardless of pre-existing conditions. Never mind that the new provider network would eliminate coverage for my and my son's long-term doctors and hospitals.

The Anthem rep cheerily explained that despite the company's -- I paraphrase -- draconian rates and limited network, my benefits, which also include maternity coverage (handy for a 46-year-old), would "be actually much richer."

I, of course, would be actually much poorer. And it was this aspect of the bum deal that, to my surprise, turned out to be a very unpopular thing to gripe about.

"Obamacare or Kafkacare?" I posted on Facebook as soon as I hung up with Anthem. I vented about the call and wrote that the president should be protecting the middle class, not making our lives substantially harder. For extra sympathy, I may have thrown in the fact that I'm a single mom. (O.K., I did.)

Then I sat back and waited for the love to pour in. Or at least the "like." Lots of likes. After all, I have 1,037 Facebook friends. Surely, they'd commiserate.

Except that they didn't.

India-Pakistan
US warns Maldives president after vote blocked
[Pak Daily Times] The United States stepped up its criticism of the embattled Maldives on Tuesday, warning caretaker president Mohammed Waheed that a decision to remain in office after his mandate expired was endangering democracy.

The US State Department said Waheed's move to continue to govern after his time in office lapsed at midnight Sunday was unprecedented, after the tourism-reliant Indian Ocean nation failed to hold elections for the third time in two months.

"The US government is deeply concerned by President Waheed's unprecedented decision to remain past the legal mandate of his presidency, which ended on November 10," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement issued by the US embassy in Colombo.

"This action has endangered the Maldivian people's right to elect a leader of their choice," she said.
And it's giving Champ ideas...
Waheed announced Sunday he would remain in office until a rescheduled run-off vote to elect a president is held on November 16, five days after the constitution mandates that his term should have ended.
