Laverne Cox has always used her celebrity platform to be a voice for the transgender community, and she isn't stopping anytime soon. The actress appeared on MSNBC's Hardball on Thursday, joining Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality , and Travis Weber, a right-wing activist who argued for states' rights to determine specific rights offered to transgender people. As we're sure you can imagine given the two powerful women involved in the conversation, the dude got his ass handed to him. Host Chris Matthews asked Weber whether Cox should use the male or female bathroom, and the right-winger was lost for words. Read more...

NEW DELHI: Retirement fund body EPFO will launch a housing scheme next month for its over four crore members to enable them to make down payment and pay EMIs from their EPF accounts to buy homes. "The Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has firmed up a housing scheme for it subscribers. The scheme is likely to be launched anytime after March, 8 when voting in five poll bound states would be over," a source said. "Under the scheme, the EPFO will act as a facilitator for its subscribers to buy homes for themselves during their service period," he added. The subscribers as well as their employers would be required to form a group housing society which would further tie up with banks and builders or sellers of homes so that EPFO members can buy homes, he said. Under the scheme it is envisaged that there should be 20 members at least in the group housing society to avail the facility.

This also protects them from legal claims by people who signed up for the card, paid the annual fee and then didn't get all the benefits they were promised for the entire first year. On the other hand, grandfathering can sometimes occur when old cards are discontinued. Before the merger between American and US Airways , Barclaycard offered a US Airways Mastercard that in some cases came with a 10,000-mile bonus on every anniversary for the life of the card. After the merger, all the US Airways MasterCards were converted to AAdvantage Aviator Red cards which had new and different benefits, but existing cardholders who had applied with the 10,000-mile anniversary bonus have continued to receive it each and every year . So Jordan, you most likely have nothing to worry about anytime soon, but if you keep the card long enough, you'll probably see some changes at some point.

Unauthorized gatherings are banned. Pro-el-Sissi media consistently demonize dissidents and discourage any complaining, urging a patriotic front. Calls for protests following the initial price hikes in November fizzled and, for the moment, there appears to be little attempt at more. Kaldas said that in the view of the population, they had two uprisings that ousted two governments and quality of life has only deteriorated. “The likelihood that they would see that as a solution going forward anytime soon is, I think, pretty slim,” he said.

What this means is — for at least the next 10 weeks — you can fly in premium economy seats and get premium economy service for the cost of an economy ticket. However, depending on your elite status, you might have to pay more to choose a Main Cabin Extra seat. For those with American Airlines Platinum or Executive Platinum elite status , you can select MCE seats for free at anytime. AA Gold elites have the option of paying 50% of the standard rate up until 24 hours before departure, at which time selecting MCE seats becomes free. If you don't have status, you'll have to pay the standard rate to choose these seatsunless you can convince a gate agent to give you complimentary access. Non-elite flyers have the option to choose premium economy seats for $163-211 each way. Pricing for Main Cabin Extra generally varies based on the route. However, the premium seems to be the same across all four routes where American Airlines has premium economy products: $163-211 each way, depending on the seat.

I recommend keeping an eye on flight alternatives anytime you anticipate trouble, like if you're facing bad weather or a short connection. When you have to make quick decisions about changes to your itinerary, it helps to already have a sense of what works and what doesn't, especially if you're on a tight schedule. Ed's story is a great example of how that information can be handy even when your plans are flexible. By knowing that he could take the nonstop to Shanghai and being aware that his original flight was oversold , he was able to leverage his delay into more time at his destination. The nonstop to Shanghai gave Ed a chance to try out one of United's newer 787 aircraft. I love this story and I want to hear more like it! To thank Ed for sharing his experience (and for allowing me to post it online), I’m sending him a $200 Visa gift card to enjoy on future travels, and I’d like to do the same for you.

Some observers argue that, when it comes to accuracy, the stakes are in some ways higher for the State Department briefing because U.S. foreign policy is supposed to be non-partisan, and because journalists in other countries often turn to the U.S. for information when their governments are trying to repress data. “Facts are what it’s all about,” said Jen Psaki, a former State Department spokeswoman and communications director for the Obama White House. “It’s really an opportunity for a secretary of state or a staff who are serious policymakers to really project their message, to project U.S. policy.” At times, the secretary of state makes an appearance during the daily press briefing and takes questions as well. It’s unclear whether Tillerson is willing to put himself in that position anytime soon — the reporters assigned to State are known to be dogged questioners.

Declaring a safe zone, unlike building a border wall, does not create a physical deterrent that guards a certain area of land. Safe zones necessitate a huge military presence in order to provide protection for civilians, and there can be catastrophic consequences if those forces are unable to keep the area safe. A safe zone in northern Iraq that was briefly implemented in 1991 required 20,000 troops from a number of nations to protect. Analysts consider this safe zone a relatively successful case, but it involved a major military operation and tremendous resources, and it lasted only a few months. Syrias conflict, meanwhile, looks unlikely to end anytime soon, and presents a far more complex situation than the Iraqi case. Any plan to implement safe zones in Syria and possibly neighboring countries would need to address threats from the Syrian regime, Russian air forces and a multitude of non-state armed groups involved in the conflict.

"She certainly is entitled to make such comments on her own time and in her personal capacity, but not as a commissioner on the FEC according to this regulation. Anytime she appears on television, she is obligated to say she is appearing in her personal capacity and not as an official representative or member of the FEC. If she is not doing that, then that is a potential violation." Weintraub provided the Free Beacon with a statement that claims voter fraud falls under the jurisdiction of the FEC. "As a Commissioner on the Federal Election Commission, I am acutely aware that our democracy rests on the faith of the American people in the integrity of their elections," Weintraub says within the statement. "The President of the United States has, without providing evidence, alleged a massive conspiracy to bus thousands of voters from one state to another to cast illegal votes in the 2016 elections.
