Cameroon summons US ambassador: official sources 23.5.2018 General News
Cameroonian authorities summoned the US ambassador in the country today, sources said, days after he accused government forces of abuses against separatists in English-speaking regions. Government and diplomatic sources told AFP that the foreign ministry had summoned Ambassador Peter Barlerin.

University of Southern California torn by scandal, 200 faculty members call for USC's top official to resign 23.5.2018 DNA: Top News
Two-hundred faculty members of the University of Southern California on Tuesday called for the USC's top official to resign over the school's handling of complaints that a campus health clinic gynecologist sexually abused his patients during pelvic exams. The demand for USC President C.L. Max Nikias to step down came in an open letter from professors to the school's Board of Trustees as USC faced a mounting tide of litigation accusing Dr. George Tyndall of misconduct and the university of complicity and negligence. Tyndall resigned from the university last year after an internal inquiry found his pelvic examination practices were beyond accepted medical standards and that he had harassed patients. More than 2,200 students, alumni and others at USC, one of the most prestigious private US institutions of higher education, signed a separate online petition calling for Nikias' ouster as the campus reeled from its third major personnel scandal since last year. The university has acknowledged failing to ...

China's war against Islam 22.5.2018 General News
There has been a sharp uptick in government-backed persecution of Christianity and other religions in China, but none are currently suffering as much as the Muslim population in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR). Some 11 million Uighurs reside in this northwest Chinese province.Of course, using the word "autonomous" to describe Xinjiang is a complete misnomer, because it has no autonomy whatsoever. Instead, thousands of Muslims are currently incarcerated in extrajudicial detention centers and reeducation camps.The exact number of victims is impossible to verify, but estimates range from several hundred thousand upwards. Human Rights Watch, for example, claims 800,000 Muslims are detained, while Uighur exile groups estimate about 1 million Uighurs. They allege that nearly every Muslim household has been affected by these arbitrary arrests. For example, in Moyu county alone, 40% of adults have disappeared, with family members often having no idea where their loved one ...

Ryan school murder: Court upholds juvenile board's ruling that accused be tried as adult 21.5.2018 DNA: Top News
A child sessions court in Gurugram upheld the judgment by the Juvenile Justice board that the main accused in the murder of a Class I student in Ryan International School last September be tried as an adult. By being tried as an adult, the accused can be subjected to stringent punishment if convicted. “We welcome the decision,” said Sushil Tekriwal, the lawyer of the victim’s family. According to The Times of India, the Gurugram sessions court rejected a plea by the accused's family. The accused's family had filed a petition contesting the board's order, claiming that the JJB had passed its order even before the CBI could complete its investigation and file a chargesheet in the case. The CBI had earlier opposed the bail plea of the 16-year-old student accused in the Ryan murder case, saying the recent Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) order to try him as an adult "speaks about his mental status and the heinous crime he committed". The agency sought dismissal of the bail plea on the ground that the JJB had ...

Transgender people in Iran face discrimination despite 21.5.2018 General News
Nahal smokes yet another cigarette on her mother's balcony overlooking Tehran, one of the few peaceful places the 19-year-old transgender woman has in Iran, where her identity can bring harassment and prying, judging eyes on the street. Nahal recalled how she had hardly started high school before being forced to leave over her classmates' insistence she dress as a man. Her manicured fingernails, painted pink, brushed away her long brown hair as she looked through old photographs of her childhood, recounting how even her own family has struggled to accept her. "I no longer see my relatives," she said. "Maybe I'm a sign that if your own children will have a similar problem later, you can accept it." It shouldn't be like this for Nahal in the Islamic Republic, which - perhaps to the surprise of those abroad - has perhaps the most open mindset in the Middle East toward transgender people. The Shiite theocracy's founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, issued a religious decree, or fatwa, 30 .

People who start smoking marijuana in the beginning of their teens are at a higher risk of having a drug abuse problem by the age of 28, a study has found. Researchers from by Universite de Montreal in Canada suggest that found that children in primary school need to be educated about the risks of starting pot smoking, especially now that the potency is much greater than it was in decades past and that public acceptance is being spurred by legalisation in many places. The study found that those who started smoking pot between the age of 15 and 17 were at 44 per cent higher risk of developing a drug abuse problem. However, the risk was higher at 68 per cent for those who started at an earlier age.

For the study published in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, researchers looked at data for 1,030 boys from some of the ...
