  2. Pastor said he was 'sucking demons' out of men he sexually assaulted 'You don't have to be afraid anymore, I'm your protector now,' the pastor allegedly told one of his victims 19 July 2019 16:43 BST | Josh Milton A Presbyterian pastor in New Jersey accused of sexual assault has defended himself by saying he was exorcising evil, demonic spirits from the men. Three parishioners came forward and claimed that 69-year-old Reverend Dr William Weaver sexually assaulted them, according to Newsweek. When the three came for private counselling from the Reverend, he would say he needed to ‘suck’ out the demoms through their semen. Balancing acts According to impact statements the men submitted to the Presbytery of Elizabeth, which has jurisdiction over the church in Linden, Weaver would order each man to strip naked and lie down. Then he would place an ‘angel coin’ on their foreheads and have them balance stones on their hands and ankles. During this, Weavers would then perform oral sex on the men. The pastor cited Native American rituals and a verse from Ephesians telling Christians to ‘put on the full armor of God.’ One man, AJ Meeker, explained how he started visiting Weaver about family problems in 2000, when he was 20. ‘I refuse to stay silent any longer,’ he wrote in his statement. ‘I need to make sure that this never happens to anyone else ever again.’ Moreover, another man who came forward, Jared Staunton, said that after the reverend assaulted him, he allegedly ‘lifted my head up and looked into my eyes, and said: “You don’t have to be afraid anymore, I’m your protector now.”‘ After that, the pastor kissed him on the lips. Gay porn found on his church computer In June, the three men, along with a woman who claimed Weaver similarly assaulted her, filed a lawsuit in Middlesex County Superior Court. Alongside Weaver, they are suing the Linden Presbyterian Church, the Presbytery of Elizabeth and the Presbyterian Church (USA). This resulted in an investigation by the Presbytery that found evidence of ‘multiple acts of idolatry and sexual misconduct.’ Investigators also found male-on-male porn on a church-owned computer in Weaver’s office. ‘A Jekyll and Hyde’ Weaver had worked at Linden Presbyterian for around 39 years. He also served as chaplain for the local chapter of the Vietnam Veterans Association. Audrey Pereira, a representative for the chapter, described him as ‘a Jekyll and Hyde.’ ‘He did good on one hand,’ she told My Central Jersey. ‘On the other hand, he did this evil to who knows how many. It can’t just have been these guys. ‘There has to be more.’ https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/pastor-said-he-was-sucking-demons-out-of-men-he-sexually-assaulted/#gs.qa0ime

  4. Virginia Man Sues Godiva Because the Belgium Chocolates Are Not Made in Belgium The Virginia man is now seeking $74,000 in damages after purchasing what he claims were falsely-advertised chocolates By Joelle Goldstein | July 18, 2019 11:55 PM A Virginia man is taking legal action against Godiva after he claims their products were falsely-advertised. The lawsuit, which was filed on Wednesday, alleges that the chocolates purchased by the man in Washington D.C. were not actually from Belgium as they were advertised on the packaging, according to documents obtained by NBC 4’s Scott MacFarlane. The lawsuit states that “Belgian 1926” was displayed across the front of the chocolates, which would lead a “reasonable consumer” to assume that the product was made in Belgium at a “premium” price. Instead, the document reads, “all Godiva chocolates sold in the United States are created at a plant in Reading, Pennsylvania.” The man is now seeking $74,000 in damages, according to MacFarlane. Representatives at Godiva did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Godiva was founded by the Draps family in 1926 after initially starting as a small praline-making business in Brussels, Belgium, according to the company’s website. The company was initially called Chocolaterie Draps but later changed their name to Godiva (after Lady Godiva) once the family decided to open an exclusive chocolate shop. In 1966, the family crossed paths with the Campbell Soup Company, who eventually acquired a third of a stake in Godiva and went on to introduce it to the American public. Though they no longer own Godiva, Campbell’s played a major role in helping the chocolatier expand all over the world, with more than 600 stores currently in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. The soup company also bought a plant in Reading, PA during the 1960s to help with production, which has since become the spot where the company makes chocolate for the U.S. market. The Belgian plant, meanwhile, produces for the rest of the world, according to Godiva’s website. This isn’t the first time that Godiva has faced legal action over the origin of their chocolate. Earlier this year, the company was sued by two people who similarly claimed the brand was falsely-advertising their products due to the “Belgium 1926” wrapper, according to Yahoo. The plaintiffs sought $5 million in damages and demanded a jury trial, but the case was eventually dismissed the outlet reports. https://people.com/food/man-sues-godiva-belgium-chocolates-not-from-belgium/

  6. Researchers eliminated HIV from the DNA of infected mice. It's the first step toward a cure for humans, they say By Scottie Andrew and Saeed Ahmed, CNN 19 hrs ago Researchers have successfully eliminated HIV from the DNA of infected mice, a promising step toward a cure for the nearly 37 million people living with the virus. In a study published Tuesday in Nature Communications, researchers from Temple University's Lewis Katz School of Medicine and the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) coupled genome editing technology with a slow-release virus suppression drug to eliminate HIV cells entirely from some infected mice. Current HIV treatment cannot eliminate the virus entirely but does suppress its replication. Antiretroviral therapy, or ART, requires lifelong use to stall the virus' spread and, as a May study found, can potentially end the transmission of HIV between sexual partners. Testing their methods on a group of infected "humanized mice," or rodents engineered to produce human T cells susceptible to HIV, researchers administered a treatment called LASER ART, or long-acting, slow-effective release ART, to suppress HIV cells from replicating. The team modified the drug for a slow release across several weeks, targeting tissue in the spleen, bone marrow and brain where latent HIV reservoirs, or clusters of inactive HIV cells, were likely to occur. To eliminate the remaining infective cells from the subject's DNA, they employed a gene editing tool called CRISPR-Cas9. The process allowed the teams to "clean segments of the genome" and remove the HIV chromosome, co-author Kamel Khalili told CNN. By the study's end, researchers had successfully eliminated the virus from nine out of 23 mice. The results prove that HIV can be eliminated, researchers say The two labs initially began their research separately: Howard Gendelman at UNMC pursued trials with LASER ART, while Khalili at Temple University had been tampering with CRISPR technology for five years. They combined their efforts to attempt complete elimination of the virus. And their lofty goal required a unique approach. Khalili said he treated HIV as a genetic disease: Once the virus infects a subject, the viral genome enters into the chromosome and becomes a "bad gene," he said. Combination therapy was a prime way to attack HIV from both angles: Slow its spread first with LASER ART, then edit it out completely with CRISPR. To confirm they'd eradicated the virus, a process that took years, Gendelman told CNN the team examined every "nook and cranny" of the mice's tissue where infected cells may lurk. The results are proof that elimination of HIV is possible—but they're just a first step, not a leap straight to cure, he cautioned. "We're landing on the moon," he said. "It doesn't mean you made it to Mars yet." Khalili's labs have been working on a version of the study with primates, though it'll take between 9 months to one year to discern if the virus is eradicated. A paper based on the short-term results of gene editing in primates could be published within the year, he said. If their methods continue to prove successful, clinical trials could follow as soon as next summer, he said. Recent attempts to cure HIV have sparked hope Hope for a cure swelled in March when researchers announced a second person had been effectively rid of HIV after a stem cell transplant successfully eliminated any trace of the virus from his blood. Both patients, known as the London and Berlin patients, were treated with stem cell transplants from donors born with the CCR5 genetic mutation that made them resistant to the virus. The men, already infected with HIV, were diagnosed with forms of cancer when they received the treatment. The London patient had been in sustained remission for 18 months at the time the article was published, researchers said. In 2018, an HIV vaccine concept got the go-ahead for further testing after a study found it induced an immune response in humans and monkeys. Its effectiveness in protecting humans from the virus is still unknown. https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/medical/researchers-eliminated-hiv-from-the-dna-of-infected-mice-its-the-first-step-toward-a-cure-for-humans-they-say/ar-AADKOwP?fbclid=IwAR393UQQQ5Aul4W7ySJciPfYtty9s_dqV8FiXe1YN6Z2YI7hG1Duk0cKP7M

  11. U.S. Requiring Social Media Information From Visa Applicants By Sandra E. Garcia June 2, 2019 Visa applicants to the United States are required to submit any information about social media accounts they have used in the past five years under a State Department policy that started on Friday. Such account information would give the government access to photos, locations, dates of birth, dates of milestones and other personal data commonly shared on social media. “We already request certain contact information, travel history, family member information, and previous addresses from all visa applicants,” the State Department said in a statement. “We are constantly working to find mechanisms to improve our screening processes to protect U.S. citizens, while supporting legitimate travel to the United States.” In March 2017, President Trump asked the secretary of state, the attorney general, the secretary of homeland security and the director of national intelligence to put in effect “a uniform baseline for screening and vetting standards and procedures,” according to a memo published in the Federal Register. Requiring information about the social media accounts of visa applicants was part of that. The move represents a step up from a September 2017 measure in which the Homeland Security Department proposed and enacted a regulation calling for the surveillance of social media use of all immigrants, including naturalized citizens. During the Obama administration, the State Department began to ask visa applicants to voluntarily submit their social media information. “This seems to be part and parcel of the same effort to have an extraordinary broad surveillance of citizens and noncitizens,” Elora Mukherjee, director of the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic at Columbia Law School, said on Sunday of the latest development. “Given the scope of the surveillance efforts, it is hard to find a rational basis for the broad surveillance the Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security have been doing for almost two years.” The added requirement could dissuade visa applicants, who may see it as a psychological barrier to enter the United States. “This is a dangerous and problematic proposal, which does nothing to protect security concerns but raises significant privacy concerns and First Amendment issues for citizens and immigrants,” Hina Shamsi, the director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s National Security Project, said on Sunday. “Research shows that this kind of monitoring has chilling effects, meaning that people are less likely to speak freely and connect with each other in online communities that are now essential to modern life.” The social media web today is a map of our contacts, associations, habits and preferences. This kind of requirement will result in suspicion of surveillance of travelers and their networks of friends, families and business associates, Ms. Shamsi said, adding that the government had failed to explain how it would use this information. Further, the government has been unable to prove that social media can provide reliable indications that identify a security threat, she said. “In the absence of any such indicators, what we’ve seen domestically and abroad is government officials penalizing people’s speech, religious affiliation and other conduct,” she said. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/02/us/us-visa-application-social-media.html
  12. Their definition of "recycle" is to dump their trash to 3rd world countries.
  13. Malaysia to ship back tonnes of plastic waste to Canada, USA, UK & Australia By Staff The Associated Press Malaysia will send back some 3,000 metric tons of non-recyclable plastic waste to countries such as the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia in a move to avoid becoming a dumping ground for rich nations, Environment Minister Yeo Bee Yin said Tuesday. Yeo said Malaysia and many developing countries have become new targets after China banned the import of plastic waste last year.
  14. 'We are going to send this back': Malaysia returning unwanted Canadian plastic Official hopes Canadians will demand 'better tracking and monitoring' of recycling David Common · CBC News · Posted: May 28, 2019 4:30 AM ET | Last Updated: an hour ago Malaysia is denouncing Canada's "irresponsible" export of plastic waste, becoming the second Asian nation to make plans to ship Canadian trash back across the ocean. On Tuesday, Malaysian officials opened a shipping container filled with plastic bags from major Canadian chains, as well as product packaging stamped with "Made in Canada" labels from recognizable brands. "I think you need to take back your rubbish," Malaysian Environment Minister Yeo Bee Yin told a CBC News crew at Port Klang, a sprawling facility outside Kuala Lumpur. Authorities did not identify which company exported the plastic from Canada. But they said it will be returned to that exporter after it was deemed to be too contaminated and of insufficient value for legitimate recyclers in Malaysia to take it in. It's not known if the plastic in Malaysia came from a municipal recycling program, but shipping waste halfway around the world and back is not likely what Canadians think of when they drop plastic for recycling into their blue bin. "I hope this will make Canadians angry as well," the environment minister said. "This is the irresponsible export of plastic, of waste. It's household garbage, it smells bad." Philippines also returning rejected waste Malaysia's move comes amid an outcry in the Philippines over containers of fetid waste that have been stuck there for years. Dozens of containers filled with contaminated plastic and other waste are set to leave the Philippines bound for Canada this week after a diplomatic brouhaha over the rubbish, which was sent abroad by a Canadian company in 2013 and 2014. The years-old issue came to light again recently when President Rodrigo Duterte lashed out over the garbage, saying in late April that the garbage was going back to Canada — with or without help from authorities in Ottawa. The Philippines issued bombastic complaints about Ottawa delaying the return of the container, and eventually moved to recall its envoys to Canada. With the departure of the containers now imminent, Filipino Foreign Minister Teodoro Locsin Jr. had some choice words about the issue on Twitter. The story of Canada's plastic waste — first in the Philippines and now in Malaysia — has travelled across Asia. More than 100 journalists were present when Malaysian authorities opened the Canadian container, along with containers from the U.S., China, Japan and Saudi Arabia. "We are going to send this back to Canada," Malaysia's environment minister told CBC News. "We really hope the people of Canada will demand better tracking and monitoring of your waste recycling." What's in the container? CBC's team in Malaysia found plastic bags from several Canadian grocery giants, including Loblaws, No Frills, Walmart and Costco. The bin also held product packaging from bread and meat companies, like Dempster's and Schneiders. It's not known how these items ended up with the waste sent to Malaysia, which has just 50 licensed plastic recyclers. Those licensed operators are allowed to import containers full of plastic from countries like Canada, and are required to adhere to specific environmental regulations. But the government estimates there are likely hundreds of other operators — some remote and illegal, others existing under the cover of a legitimate licence holder — that are potentially operating outside the rules. While some plastic is broken down into pellets for re-use, local authorities have said those "under the radar" operators are known to dump, bury and burn less valuable plastics. Enormous piles of dust-like plastic residue is left to contaminate groundwater, and often leaves a haze over certain regions of the country. It's a long way from what many consumers in Canada likely expect when they take their blue box to the curb. Plastic recycling is a multi-billion dollar global business. Only certain higher-value plastics are in demand in North America for recycling, and the United States has much of the capacity. For years, China was the destination of choice for plastic waste, taking in virtually any consumer or industrial product for recycling. But contaminated imports, worsening air pollution and a shifting economy prompted Chinese authorities to abruptly ban imports of plastic for recycling in 2017. Brokers in the developed world, including in Canada, struggled to find new markets to send the plastic from millions of blue boxes. For many months, it was piled high in Canadian warehouses or incinerated. Then Chinese operators shifted their businesses to neighbouring countries, including Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand. They joined existing recyclers in once again welcoming the developed world's plastic. Canadians recycle just 11 per cent of all the plastics we use — much of it sent far away to be recycled, or otherwise. That has prompted some groups in Canada to call for a reduction in the use of plastics, rather than a reliance on recycling. Especially as the nations where the developed world sends some of its plastic to be recycled are increasingly closing the door. https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/take-back-your-rubbish-malaysia-returning-unwanted-canadian-plastic-1.5152274
  15. Is this how Canada preserve their nature? Philippines' Duterte loses patience, orders trash shipped back Canada May 22, 2019 / 6:39 PM / 6 days ago MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered his government to hire a private shipping company to send 69 containers of garbage back to Canada and leave them within its territorial waters if it refuses to accept the trash, his spokesman said on Wednesday. “The Philippines as an independent sovereign nation must not be treated as trash by other foreign nation,” Presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo told a media briefing. Canada says the waste, exported to the Philippines between 2013 and 2014, was a commercial transaction done without the government’s consent. Canada had already agreed to take the rubbish back and the two countries were in the process of arranging the transfer. But Canada missed a May 15 deadline set by Manila to take back the shipment, prompting the Philippines to withdraw top diplomats from Canada last week. “Obviously, Canada is not taking this issue nor our country seriously. The Filipino people are gravely insulted about Canada treating this country as a dump site,” Panelo said. On Wednesday, Canada said it had hired a company, Bollore Logistics Canada, “to safely bring the waste back to Canada as soon as possible,” according to a government statement. “The removal will be complete by the end of June, as the waste must be safely treated to meet Canadian safety and health requirements,” the statement said. The Philippines has made several diplomatic protests to Canada since a 2016 court ruling that the garbage be returned. The consignments were labeled as containing plastics to be recycled in the Philippines but were filled with a variety of rubbish including diapers, newspapers and water bottles. Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland spoke to her Filipino counterpart, Teodoro Locsin, about the garbage spat last week. “As I mentioned to their Foreign Secretary last week, we are committed to resolving this issue as quickly as possible. Today is an essential step forward in accomplishing that,” Freeland said in the statement on Wednesday. The issue is not the only one to strain ties between the two countries. Last year, Duterte ordered the military to cancel a $233 million deal to buy 16 helicopters from Canada, after Ottawa expressed concern they could be used to fight rebels. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-philippines-canada-waste/philippines-duterte-loses-patience-orders-trash-shipped-back-canada-idUSKCN1SS14D
