Texas House passes 'bathroom bill' targeting public schools

Pharma news - May 23, 2017 - 2:21pm

The Texas House of Representatives gave formal approval on Monday to a bill that would restrict bathroom access for transgender students in public schools, a measure that critics say promotes discrimination against such children. The state's Republican-controlled legislature has been at the forefront in advancing measures seen by backers as protecting traditional values and religious liberty but criticized by civil rights groups as eroding protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, people. The Texas House gave preliminary approval on Sunday night to the bill, which requires public school students to use bathrooms, changing facilities and locker rooms that match their biological sex, not the gender with which they identify.

The only real way to stop atrocities like the Manchester attack is to end the wars which allow extremism to grow

Pharma news - May 23, 2017 - 1:05pm

President Trump leaves the Middle East today, having done his bit to make the region even more divided and mired in conflict than it was before. At the same moment that Donald Trump was condemning the suicide bomber in Manchester as “an evil loser in life”, he was adding to the chaos in which al-Qaeda and Isis have taken root and flourished. It may be a long distance between the massacre in Manchester and the wars in the Middle East, but the connection is there.

Melania Trump appears to reject Donald Trump's invitation to hold hands for second day in a row

Pharma news - May 23, 2017 - 12:42pm

When he arrived in Italy, Donald Trump might have been hoping for a little bit of La Dolce Vita. The apparent snub came a day after a similar scene at Ben Gurion International Airport in Israel, where Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, rolled out the red carpet for the US leader.
