Ole Helmersen i RÆSON SØNDAG: Nu hvor fortøjningerne til EU er kappet, kan Storbritannien igen indtage den plads, det havde, dengang solen aldrig gik ned over imperiet

Ræson: Magasin om politik - Sat, 10/09/2021 - 17:30
Churchills ’tre udenrigspolitiske cirkler’ er atter blevet aktuelle: Storbritannien har under Boris Johnson vendt sig væk fra den europæiske interessesfære og over til USA og Commonwealth-landene i en række tiltag og udtalelser. Johnsons idé om et ’Global Britain’ er bygget på en historie om en glorværdig britisk fortid og en fortælling om, at intet har […]

Goldman Sachs has reached a settlement with a former intern who accused the investment banking firm of fostering a 'fraternity culture'

Businessinsider - Sat, 10/09/2021 - 17:25
  • Goldman Sachs and a former intern have settled, according to court filings from Thursday.
  • The intern accused the company of fostering a culture that promotes hazing and violence.
  • He says he suffered bleeding to the brain after an adviser punched him and headlocked him.

Goldman Sachs has reached a settlement with a former intern who accused the investment firm of fostering a "fraternity culture" that promoted hazing and violence.

Patrick Blumenthal was a Drexel University student who interned for Goldman Sachs in San Francisco beginning in September 2017.

Court filings say Blumenthal was assigned to work with a group that called itself "Team 007" and was led by wealth adviser Julius Erukhimov.

A complaint alleges that the bank "fostered a fraternity culture" complete with derogatory name-calling, physical altercations, and "rampant" drinking. It says Blumenthal was pressured to drink within his first week at Goldman despite being underage and was repeatedly warned early on that he would "take an infinite amount of shit from people." The filing says Erukhimov called the plaintiff a "pussy" for not drinking enough and even told Blumenthal to take Adderall so he could drink more.

The settlement, filed Thursday in the San Francisco Superior Court, does not reveal the specific terms of the agreement.

Perhaps the most damning incident in the lawsuit says Blumenthal was "forced to drink by his managers" during a "First Friday" bar event. The filing accuses Erukhimov of telling Blumenthal that he would "teach him how to drink" before punching him in his stomach and telling him to punch his manager back.

When Blumenthal said no, the complaint filing says, Erukhimov wrestled with him and shoved him from the bar to the outdoor patio. The adviser then allegedly choked Blumenthal for so long that he passed out and urinated on himself. Blumenthal came away from the incident with an injured head, the filing says.

He went to the emergency room days later, according to the complaint, where doctors told him he had bleeding to the brain.

Multiple Goldman employees witnessed the event, Blumenthal's lawyers say in the complaint filing. And they let Erukhimov drive Blumenthal to Erukhimov's home, where he took four pain relievers. At the adviser's apartment, Erukhimov allegedly threatened him, saying a relative would kill him if Blumenthal disclosed the events of the night to management.

Goldman Sachs did not immediately respond to a request for comment asking for the details of the settlement.

South Korea's first transgender soldier posthumously wins case against the army over her 'illegal' discharge

Businessinsider - Sat, 10/09/2021 - 16:58
Byun Hee-soo weeps during a press conference at the Center for Military Human Right Korea in Seoul, South Korea, Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020.
  • Byun Hee-soo, South Korea's first transgender soldier, was dismissed after undergoing gender confirmation surgery.
  • She was found dead in her apartment in March, and reports say she died by suicide.
  • A court has ruled that her dismissal was illegal and that the army should rescind the wrongful discharge.

South Korea's first transgender soldier has posthumously won a court case against the nation's army over her "illegal" dismissal, Pink News reported.

The Daejeon District Court ruled on Thursday that it was unlawful for the army to forcibly discharge the former staff sergeant Byun Hee-soo, who was a tank driver in the South Korean army, following her gender confirmation surgery last year.

The court also ruled that she was clearly a female by law and ordered that the army rescind the wrongful discharge, according to reports.

Byun was dismissed from the military following her decision to undergo gender confirmation surgery in Thailand last year while on leave, Reuters reported. She had expressed a desire to continue serving in the female corps following the surgery.

South Korea prohibits transgender people from joining the military and rejected her petition for reinstatement in July last year, per ABC News.

Military officials argued that her loss of male genitalia amounted to a mental and physical disability, Vice reported.

At the time, Byun protested the dismissal and vowed to "challenge the decision until the end." She launched a legal battle in August 2020, arguing that the army's treatment of her was unconstitutional.

She was found dead in her apartment, aged 23, in March 2021. Although reports have not confirmed her cause of death, it has been reported that she died by suicide. Her family took over the late soldier's case.

South Korea's army has said that it respects the decision but it has not yet decided whether it will appeal the ruling, Korea JoongAng Daily reported.

Capitol rioter suspected of stealing Nancy Pelosi's laptop is charged. Her plot to sell it to Russian spies is still being investigated, says report.

Businessinsider - Sat, 10/09/2021 - 16:24
Riley Williams is accused of stealing Nancy Pelosi's laptop during the Capitol Riot.
  • Riley Williams, 22, has been formally charged with the theft of Nancy Pelosi's laptop during the Capitol Riot.
  • Williams appeared to boast about stealing the laptop online.
  • Authorities were tipped off in part by an ex-boyfriend of Williams.

A Capitol Riot suspect accused of stealing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's laptop has been formally charged, court filings show.

Riley Williams, 22, from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, stole Nancy Pelosi's laptop on January 6 according to an indictment unsealed on Thursday, and planned to try and sell it to Russian intelligence agents,

She has been charged with eight counts, including theft of government property, obstructing an official proceeding, and assaulting or resisting police, according to the indictment.

It said Williams stole a "Hewlett-Packard laptop computer located in the offices of a member of the U.S. Congress."

Williams could face 20 years in jail and fines of $600,000 if she is convicted, The Daily Mail said.

Williams' involvement in the Capitol riot came to light partly through a tip-off from an ex-boyfriend, according to a January affidavit.

The FBI said a former romantic partner of Williams informed authorities that he had seen her in news footage.

The boyfriend claimed she had told people she intended to send Pelosi's stolen laptop to a friend in Russia, who would then sell it on to its foreign intelligence service.

Authorities reviewed videos and images taken on January 6 and identified Williams entering the Capitol, and appearing to enter and exit Pelosi's office, the affidavit says.

One video shows Williams filming herself taking the laptop.

In a series of Discord messages obtained by the FBI, a person who appears to be Williams wrote, "I STOLE SHIT FROM NANCY POLESI [sic]."


Discord messages appearing to be from Riley Williams about Nancy Pelosi's stolen laptop.

Pelosi's deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, previously said the laptop was "only used for presentations."

Prosecutors said they are still investigating the claims that she intended to send the laptop to Russia, according to CNN.

In January, Williams' attorney Lori Ulrich said that it was regrettable that her client "took the President's bait and went inside the Capitol," but denied that she was responsible for stealing the laptop.

Ulrich said that the allegations had come in part from a "former abusive boyfriend" who had "threatened" Williams.

The laptop has still not been recovered.

In January, a federal judge in Pennsylvania banned Williams from using the internet while she awaited trial and limited her to using a flip phone after she was suspected of deleting social media accounts, The Daily Mail said.

More than 660 people have been charged in connection with the Capitol riot, according to Insider's tracker.

Washington State Ferries, the country's largest ferry system, temporarily reduces trips on 70% of routes because of severe staffing shortages

Businessinsider - Sat, 10/09/2021 - 16:22
Friday was a "rough service day" for Washington State Ferries, with trips cancelled on most routes.
  • Washington State Ferries said it cut trips on 70% of its routes amid staffing shortages.
  • About 140 sailings were canceled on Friday, The Seattle Times reported.
  • The service said on Twitter that Friday had been "a rough service day due to lack of crew."

Washington State Ferries (WSF) on Friday cut the number of ferries or trips on 70% of its routes because of staffing shortages.

The agency said it was forced to reduce service and cancel about 140 trips, The Seattle Times reported. Other trips were delayed in "a rough service day due to lack of crew," WSF said on Twitter.

About 202 of almost 1,600 total WSF staff were out on vacation, family leave, and medical appointments, the Times reported, adding that another 28 people were out sick on Friday.

WSF did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

WSF said on Twitter that it expected reduced service for the next few days. It said it would be hard "to predict what weekend service will look like."

A WSF spokesperson told the Times that it's becoming increasingly difficult to find available employees to fill open shifts.

"This is due to many variables including an ageing workforce, pre-pandemic worldwide maritime industry recruitment challenges and vacancies, COVID-19 quarantines and isolation, and leave related to the anticipated departure of staff in key positions required to run the fleet," WSF said on Twitter.

WSF managers expect reduced service for the next few days.

The agency has struggled with crew shortages since the coronavirus pandemic began, the Times reported in September. At least 87 ferry workers were infected with COVID-19 and 400 have had to quarantine after potential exposure, reports said.

On Friday, WSF said routes from Seattle to Bainbridge Island and to Bremerton each dropped to one boat, half the usual number. The Point Defiance-Tahlequah route was canceled most of Friday, but planned to resume at 6.30 p.m., WSF said.

"Like other Washingtonians, I am concerned with the lack of crewing on our state ferry vessels and the subsequent missed sailings," Governor Jay Inslee said in an email to the Times.

Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
  • Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted a fundraising link for Kyle Rittenhouse.
  • Rittenhouse is accused of killing two people during a Black Lives Matter protest in August 2020.
  • He has since become a symbol for right-wing gun-rights advocates.

Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Saturday tweeted a fundraiser link for Kenosha, Wisconsin, shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, encouraging her followers to donate to his legal defense.

Rittenhouse, at 17 years old, was accused of killing two people during a Black Lives Matter protest in August 2020.

On August 25 last year, Rittenhouse, a Trump supporter from Illinois, crossed state lines to get to demonstrations over the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha. Rittenhouse, who was armed with an AR-15-style rifle, fired at people at close range, police said, killing two and injuring one. Rittenhouse has since become a symbol for right-wing gun-rights advocates.

"This is where Kyle Rittenhouse's donations should be made so this young man can afford his legal defense when jury selection starts in just a few weeks," Greene wrote in the tweet.

Public schools and colleges in California must stock restrooms with free menstrual products under new law

Businessinsider - Sat, 10/09/2021 - 15:57
California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday signed into law a bill that will require all public schools and colleges in the state to stock restrooms with free menstrual products.
  • A California law will require public schools and colleges to provide free menstrual products.
  • The law, signed Friday, builds on a 2017 law that required they be available in low-income schools.
  • "Our biology doesn't always send an advanced warning when we're about to start menstruating," the lawmaker who sponsored the bill told the Associated Press.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday signed into law a bill that will require all public schools and colleges in the state to stock restrooms with free menstrual products.

According to the Associated Press, the legislation builds on a 2017 law that required public schools in low-income areas to provide menstrual products for free.

The new law requires schools to provide free menstrual products in at least half of their restrooms, including in all women's restrooms, in all-gender restrooms, and in at least one men's restroom. The cost of the products to schools would be reimbursed by the state, according to the legislation.

"Our biology doesn't always send an advanced warning when we're about to start menstruating, which often means we need to stop whatever we're doing and deal with a period," said Cristina Garcia, the California lawmaker who introduced the legislation, per AP. "Just as toilet paper and paper towels are provided in virtually every public bathrooms, so should menstrual products."

California in early 2020 enacted legislation to eliminate sales tax on menstrual products, often called the tampon tax. According to Marie Claire, 20 states and Washington, DC, have eliminated the tax on menstrual products.

The California legislation requires free menstrual products to be provided in the bathrooms of students in grades 6 through 12, in community colleges, at California State University, and at all University of California systems beginning in the 2022-23 school year, the AP first reported.

While the law does not require private institutions to do the same, it encourages them to do so.

"California joins a growing number of states who lead the way in demonstrating that menstrual equity is a matter of human rights," the advocacy group PERIOD said in a statement, according to the AP. "No student should ever lose learning time due to their periods, period."
