0 Politics & Government "We must confront Islamophobia or any form of racism" wherever it is found, said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, "even in these very halls." Daily Montanan , News Partner Posted Reply Daily Montanan December 26, 2021 The U.S. House following a vitriolic debate passed a bill along party lines Tuesday night to create a State Department office that would counter Islamophobia worldwide. Democrats said a conflict much closer to home showed the need to confront anti-Muslim bigotry. The bill sponsored by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minnesota, picked up momentum after Colorado Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert suggested Omar, who is Muslim, was a terrorist. Democrats, including Colorado’s Ed Perlmutter and Joe Neguse, criticized Boebert in declaring their support for the measure. The vote, on likely the last day the House is in session this year, appears to be the only action the chamber will take for now related … [Read more...] about U.S. House Passed A Bill Along Party Lines To Create A State Department Office That Would Counter Islamophobia Worldwide
Despite nearly drowning in a pool when he was 3 or 4, the perfumer Barnabé Fillion tries to take a swim in Paris, where he’s based for part of each year, whenever he feels a headache coming on. “Water, for me, is a way to transform,” says Fillion, 41, who has synesthesia, a condition in which one’s senses are cross-wired: In Fillion’s case, he experiences images and sounds as textures. “If I’m really saturated, water will help me. There’s something about it that makes me feel light and happy and fuzzy.” His latest scent, Manta, is meant to evoke the sensation of being underwater. It’s the fourth fragrance from Arpa , the brand Fillion launched last year, its offerings recognizable by their colored glass bottles, which are handblown by the artist Jochen Holz . Unlike the line’s other scents, however, which were inspired by memorable destinations to which Fillion has traveled — the Dallol region of Ethiopia, a Belgian forest and the hot springs of … [Read more...] about For Barnabé Fillion, Fragrance Is a Multisensory Affair
A Texas woman accused of fatally shooting a rising professional cyclist after becoming enraged over the woman’s previous relationship with her live-in boyfriend has been captured in Costa Rica after 43 days on the run. Kaitlin Marie Armstrong , the amateur cyclist and yoga teacher, faces charges for the May 11 killing of 25-year-old Anna Moriah Wilson , a Vermont native who was in Austin for an upcoming race. On Wednesday, after over a month on the run, Armstrong was captured at the Santa Teresa Beach hostel in Provincia de Puntarenas, officials said. Her arrest marks the end of a coordinated, multi-agency effort to track down the 34-year-old, whom authorities say carefully orchestrated a plan to go off the grid. Armstrong will now be deported and return to the United States to face charges related to Wilson’s death. Authorities say that two days after Wilson was found shot dead in an Austin apartment, Armstrong sold her black Jeep Grand Cherokee to a CarMax … [Read more...] about Romantic Rival Accused of Killing Cycling Star Finally Captured in Costa Rica

Daily Montanan , News Partner Posted Reply Daily Montanan February 13, 0222 A small but influential group of Democratic senators is asking their colleagues for input on how best to overhaul the federal government’s cannabis laws. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden and New Jersey’s Cory Booker released a letter Thursday asking senators whose states have legalized marijuana and those who sit on committees with oversight of federal drug policy to share their thoughts as the three attempt to perfect the legislation. “Hundreds of millions of Americans live in states that have legalized cannabis in some form while it remains illegal at the federal level,” they wrote. “This discrepancy leads to confusion and uncertainty and raises significant questions around criminal … [Read more...] about Influential Group Of Democratic Senators Asking Colleagues For Input On How Best To Overhaul Federal Government’s Cannabis Laws
0 Politics & Government The legislation is expected to be signed into law by President Joe Biden following Senate passage as early as Thursday. Daily Montanan , News Partner Posted Reply Daily Montanan March 13, 2022 Vulnerable lawmakers from throughout the country are set to rake in federal cash for home-state projects after a major spending bill included the first round of earmarks in more than a decade. Members from both political parties began requesting thousands of projects last year when U.S. House and Senate leaders resurrected what’s called “member-directed spending” — resulting in billions of dollars in earmarks spread across Congress. Leaders also overhauled the process with new oversight mechanisms and guardrails to prevent the type of scandals that plagued the earmarks process — known derisively as “pork-barrel spending” — in years past. Based on the flood of celebrations, tweets and press … [Read more...] about Return Of Earmarks A Boon For Members Of Congress Facing Midterm Battles
