Florida military bases could lose up to $177 million to Trump’s border wall

February 20, 2019

President Donald Trump will pay for his much coveted wall at the southern border in part by taking $3.6 billion from military projects across the country and the world.

The decision means Florida bases could lose up to $177 million for planned construction, more than all but eight other states, according to a list of eligible projects compiled by the House Appropriations Committee and provided to the Tampa Bay Times.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chair of the influential Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies subcommittee, said the move is an indication that Trump feels the wall “is a higher priority than these projects.” Visit www.tampabay.com to read the full article.

Stop 'whitesplaining' racism to me

February 20, 2019

Health officials issue public warnings about spikes in everything from the flu to the measles. But there is one contagion authorities are ignoring:

We're facing another outbreak of "whitesplaining.""Whitesplaining" is an affliction that's triggered when some white people hear a person of color complain about racism. They will immediately explain in a condescending tone why the person is wrong, "getting too emotional" or "seeing race in everything."

The implication: These white people know more about how racism operates than those who've struggled against it for much of their lives.

Nigeria election 2019: Who benefits from poll delay?

February 20, 2019

Nigeria is to hold a delayed presidential election this Saturday after the initial vote was rescheduled in a dramatic overnight press conference, five hours before polls were due to have opened.

The last-minute cancellation surprised the country and inconvenienced thousands of Nigerians who had travelled a long way to cast their votes. It has also cost the economy $1.5bn (£1.15bn), according to the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (Inec) has given several reasons for the delay, including attempted sabotage and logistical issues such as bad weather and problems with delivering the ballot papers.
