FROM #METOO  TO   TRIAL

Jury deliberations have begun in Harvey Weinstein’s rape trial in New York. Weinstein, 67, is charged with first-degree criminal sexual act, two counts of rape and two counts of predatory sexual assault. The charges are based on Miriam Haley’s testimony that Weinstein forced oral sex on her in 2006 and Jessica Mann’s testimony that he raped her in 2013 during what she described as an abusive relationship.

Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of sexual assault, capping a stunning downfall for the former Hollywood star and a victory for the #MeToo movement against harassment.

Weinstein, 67, was convicted in New York City of third-degree rape and first-degree criminal sexual act.

But he was cleared of the most serious count of predatory sexual assault. He faces up to 25 years in prison.

TUESDAY 13th & COMMON SUPERSTITIONS: UNLUCKY DAY?(ALL LEVELS)

Tell-Us-Your-Weirdest-Superstition-Immediately-Man-Repeller.gif

TODAY IS TUESDAY 13th 2021 .. WHAT A DAY TO COME BACK TO CLASS AFTER THE EASTER BREAK!!!

Did you know that Tuesday 13th in Spain is considered unlucky it is the equivalent of the UK´s Friday 13th, bringing with it the usual superstition and bad luck? BUT WE AREN´T SUPERSTITIOUS, ARE WE?

Read on for the lowdown on all the strangest Spanish superstitions.
If you’re the kind of superstitious soul who never walks under a ladder and is always confused about whether black cats are meant to bring bad luck or good, then you will want to know what twists of fate await you according to Spanish beliefs.

It is Tuesday the 13th that is considered unlucky in Spain, and not Friday the 13th as in Anglo-Saxon countries.

That’s because Tuesday is said to be dominated by Ares, the Greek god of war — known as Mars in Ancient Rome — who gives his name to Martes, or Tuesday, in Spanish.

There is an even old proverb that explains the superstition: “On Tuesday, don’t get married, embark on a journey, or move away (‘En martes, ni te cases, ni te embarques, ni de tu casa te apartes’)

But there are plenty of other Spanish superstitions you need to know about to make sure your time in Spain is as lucky as possible! Read on to find out more.

“THE SERPENT”, A NEW BBC “CRIME” DRAMA (B2.2)

HAVE YOU HEARD OF “THE SERPENT”?, THE NEW BBC SERIES ON NETFLIX & ORORO TV?

French-Algerian actor Tahar Rahim first learned about serial killer Charles Sobhraj as a teenager in the 1990s. He picked up the book On the Trail of the Serpent from his older brother’s nightstand, and read about a manipulative murderer who drugged, stole from and killed a series of mostly backpacking victims along South Asia’s “hippie trail” in the 1970s. Two decades later, Rahim would be cast as Sobhraj in true crime drama The Serpent, an eight part series now on Netflix. READ MORE…

READ ALL ABOUT IT

POEM

When day comes, we ask ourselves where can we find light in this never-ending shade?
The loss we carry, a sea we must wade.
We’ve braved the belly of the beast.
We’ve learned that quiet isn’t always peace,
and the norms and notions of what “just” is isn’t always justice.
And yet, the dawn is ours before we knew it.
Somehow we do it.
Somehow we’ve weathered and witnessed a nation that isn’t broken,
but simply unfinished.
We, the successors of a country and a time where a skinny Black girl descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president, only to find herself reciting for one.

And yes, we are far from polished, far from pristine,
but that doesn’t mean we are striving to form a union that is perfect.
We are striving to forge our union with purpose.
To compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters, and conditions of man.
And so we lift our gazes not to what stands between us, but what stands before us.
We close the divide because we know, to put our future first, we must first put our differences aside.
We lay down our arms so we can reach out our arms to one another.
We seek harm to none and harmony for all.
Let the globe, if nothing else, say this is true:
That even as we grieved, we grew.
That even as we hurt, we hoped.
That even as we tired, we tried.
That we’ll forever be tied together, victorious.
Not because we will never again know defeat, but because we will never again sow division.Advertisement

Scripture tells us to envision that everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree and no one shall make them afraid.
If we’re to live up to our own time, then victory won’t lie in the blade, but in all the bridges we’ve made.
That is the promise to glade, the hill we climb, if only we dare.
It’s because being American is more than a pride we inherit.
It’s the past we step into and how we repair it.
We’ve seen a force that would shatter our nation rather than share it.
Would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy.
This effort very nearly succeeded.
But while democracy can be periodically delayed,
it can never be permanently defeated.
In this truth, in this faith, we trust,
for while we have our eyes on the future, history has its eyes on us.
This is the era of just redemption.
We feared it at its inception.
We did not feel prepared to be the heirs of such a terrifying hour,
but within it, we found the power to author a new chapter, to offer hope and laughter to ourselves.
So while once we asked, ‘How could we possibly prevail over catastrophe?’ now we assert, ‘How could catastrophe possibly prevail over us?’

We will not march back to what was, but move to what shall be:
A country that is bruised but whole, benevolent but bold, fierce and free.
We will not be turned around or interrupted by intimidation because we know our inaction and inertia will be the inheritance of the next generation.
Our blunders become their burdens.
But one thing is certain:
If we merge mercy with might, and might with right, then love becomes our legacy and change, our children’s birthright.

So let us leave behind a country better than the one we were left.
With every breath from my bronze-pounded chest, we will raise this wounded world into a wondrous one.
We will rise from the golden hills of the west.
We will rise from the wind-swept north-east where our forefathers first realized revolution.
We will rise from the lake-rimmed cities of the midwestern states.
We will rise from the sun-baked south.
We will rebuild, reconcile, and recover.
In every known nook of our nation, in every corner called our country,
our people, diverse and beautiful, will emerge, battered and beautiful.
When day comes, we step out of the shade, aflame and unafraid.
The new dawn blooms as we free it.
For there is always light,
if only we’re brave enough to see it.
If only we’re brave enough to be it.

CRIME VOCABULARY IN THE NEWS (B2.2)

Pablo Hasél was taken to prison to serve a nine-month sentence for glorifying terrorism and insulting the Crown in a case that has reignited debate on freedom of expression

Catalan police on Tuesday arrested a rapper for failing to report to prison by the deadline set by a court that found him guilty of glorifying terrorism and insulting the Spanish Crown in messages on social media.

Hasél, the rapper, did not resist arrest, and as he was being led to a patrol car, he yelled out at the television cameras: “They will never silence us! Death to the fascist state!”

His case has reignited a public debate about crimes involving freedom of expression. The Spanish government on Monday announced that it is planning a reform of the criminal code that would eliminate prison terms for these kinds of crimes.

Hasél was found guilty by Spain’s central High Court over a series of Twitter messages that expressed support for terrorist organizations such as the Basque group ETA and the Marxist GRAPO. He also accused King Felipe VI and his father of several crimes, including homicide and embezzlement…… READ MORE…
