2023.06.01 13:26 princejadid BRICS: Expansion Ambitions and Challenges June 1, 2023
The #BRICS alliance, comprising Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, is intensifying efforts to emerge as a significant political and economic powerhouse. Originating as an acronym in 2001 to represent rapidly developing nations and formalized in 2009, BRICS has been unable to fully exploit its collective strength. Given the ongoing global rivalry between Beijing and Washington, coupled with international sanctions on Moscow, the bloc is now contemplating strategies to counterbalance the dominance of the US and the European Union. In a move demonstrating their collaboration, the BRICS nations have collectively pooled $100 billion as a reserve for emergencies and have established their own bank, authorizing over $30 billion in loans for various infrastructure projects since 2015. Today's meeting of the bloc's foreign ministers in Cape Town is set to discuss potential membership expansion and the establishment of a common currency, with a summit planned for late August in Johannesburg. Existing members of BRICS, representing over 42% of the world's population and contributing 23% to global GDP, have attracted the interest of nearly 19 countries looking to join, including Saudi Arabia. However, these ambitions come with inherent risks. Potential resistance from the US and its allies is anticipated, and the diverse nature of current members, with their varying governance systems and ideologies, could add complexity. While the interest from numerous nations illustrates the shifting global landscape, any expansion could also increase the difficulty of maintaining BRICS' cohesion on the international stage. #MarketUpdatesubmitted by princejadid to u/princejadid [link] [comments]

2023.06.01 13:07 rusticgorilla Florida jail officials refuse heart transplant recipient his medication, causing his death; DOJ says Louisiana officers violated law in death of autistic teen
“I am on medication,” Barry told the judge. “I just had a heart transplant, and I haven’t taken my medicine all day since I have been locked up, and I take rejection medicines for my heart so my heart won’t reject it, and I’m almost two years out.”Barry also told jail officials while in police custody; they made note of it, but never gave him the drugs.
The medical records, initially obtained by Jacksonville civil rights attorney Andrew Bonderud, show that Barry also told the jail’s healthcare providers about his medications. Barry only received his blood pressure medicine and a drug for cholesterol and his prostate, according to the medicine log.Barry died at home three days after being released, having missed at least five doses of the anti-rejection medication.
Bonderud said he believes the jail not giving Barry his anti-rejection medicine “was entirely driven by profit and a profit motive.” Bonderud, who is representing Barry’s family, explained, “Generic cholesterol medication probably isn’t that expensive. But the heart transplant medicine is very expensive.”
Dr. Maya Guglin, an Indiana cardiologist on the board at the American College of Cardiology, said organ transplant recipients have to take anti-rejection medications because their bodies view the new organ as an invasion that must be fought off.
“If you just drop those medications, everyone is eventually going to reject that organ,” she said.
Even if medication is restarted, it will be too late, Guglin said.
“Prior to arriving at the Plaintiffs’ location, Sheriff’s deputies failed to plan, choosing instead to ride in like cowboys from a John Wayne movie, defaulting to using deadly force, immediately, without attempting to deescalate the situation, in complete disregard for State law/regulation, Sheriff’s policies, and/or County ordinances,” the lawsuit states.York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson has defended the deputies’ actions, claiming that Mullinax picked up the shotgun in his truck and the officers feared for their lives. Three of the deputies who shot Mullinax are still on duty.
According to court documents, the deputies fired almost 50 rounds at Mullinax, striking him approximately nine times, including in the head. The plaintiffs’ attorneys allege this happened despite Beason being in the line of fire and Mullinax having both his arms raised.
“I tell all of my deputies that their goal is to serve the citizens of York County and then to go home safely to their families. Mr. Mullinax chose to put these men in danger by pulling a shotgun. These deputies responded appropriately to the threat as they were trained to do. Had Mr. Mullinax made different choices that day, deputies would not have been required to use force,” said Sheriff Kevin Tolson. “Our ultimate goal is to ensure the safety of the public and our deputies. Regardless of the outcome of this lawsuit, we want to reassure our residents that we will continue to provide high quality and professional law enforcement service.”Mullinax survived numerous gunshot wounds, including three to his head. After shooting him, the department charged Mullinax with allegedly pointing a gun at them.
Plaintiff Mullinax, who somehow miraculously survived the horrific shooting, has maintained his innocence of the criminal charges brought by Sheriff’s deputies. Plaintiff Mullinax denies pointing, brandishing, or presenting a firearm in any threating manner at Sheriff’s deputies, and Plaintiff Beason, who was present and standing directly beside the vehicle in plain view of Plaintiff Mullinax, maintains Plaintiff Mullinax did not point, brandish, or present a firearm in any threating manner at Sheriff’s deputies.
E.P. began to slap himself in the head, a behavior which is a common physical trait for many persons on the Severe Autistic Spectrum Disorder and is a readily observable manifestation of the person’s disability and anxiety.During this outburst, Parsa began physically struggling with his dad. The manager of the laser tag venue called the police to report there was “a man with his autistic child…in a confrontation” in the parking lot.
Along with other repetitive motions, this repetitive head slapping is sometimes referred to as type of “stimming” and can be an attempt by the person with autism to calm themselves when confronted with frustration, anxiety and/or inability to communicate. It can also be used by the individual as a self-calming or self-soothing technique to try to avert or mitigate the severity of an outburst or as self-injurious behavior. It is a visible sign that the person may be experiencing or is about to experience an outburst.
The physical restraint of E.P. in JPSO custody began with a 6’3”, very large, over 300-pound deputy taking E.P. to the ground, striking him and then sitting on E.P.’s back, holding him face down, for approximately seven minutes. Eventually there were a total of seven JPSO deputies involved, sitting on, handcuffing, shackling, holding down, or standing by E.P. as he was restrained and held face down on his stomach against the hard surface of the parking lot. The final application of excessive force against E.P. involved a deputy using his forearm to place a choke/neck hold around E.P.’s head, shoulder and neck, as he lay in a prone position, with a deputy on his back, and other deputies holding down his arms and legs, while he was handcuffed and in leg shackles.Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s deputies sat on Parsa for more than nine minutes, only releasing him after “his body had gone limp and he had urinated on himself.”
9 minutes and 6 seconds. This is how long this extremely dangerous, lifethreatening and forceful prone restraint, involving the use of the deputies’ body weight and holds, mechanical restraints, choke/neck hold, following a period of physical exertion, was applied to an unarmed, obese 16-year-old severely autistic child in the midst of a sensory outburst or meltdown.Parsa was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead. His parents filed a lawsuit against the Sheriff’s office, arguing that the deputies violated Parsa’s First, Fourth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights, as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act.
During that 9 minutes and 6 seconds, there were several clear and distinct opportunities, when E.P. was secured, was calm, was not actively resisting, when the JPSO deputies failed to de-escalate, failed to appropriately reduce the use of force against E.P., and failed to intervene to prevent the use of excessive force by other deputies.
Once E.P. was handcuffed, they did not roll him onto his side. They did not sit him up or stand him up. They did not secure him in a vehicle. They did not continuously monitor him. Instead, they continued to hold him face down, on his belly, while applying unreasonable and excessive force, resulting in his death. It wasn’t until his body had gone limp and he had urinated on himself that the deputies rolled him into “recovery position.” By then it was too late
Here, the record is replete with facts showing that several Defendants knew about E.P.'s disability before or on arrival to the scene and that others learned of his disability during the encounter…Plaintiffs have also put forth evidence that the deputies, who knew they were responding to a call for assistance with a child experiencing a behavioral health crisis, used force inappropriately to respond to a child’s known disability-related behavior…
Critically, nothing in the briefing suggests that E.P. had a weapon, that officers ever reasonably suspected he had a weapon, or that there was a threat to human life… because abundant facts show that Defendants were on notice of E.P.’s disability, a reasonable jury could conclude that Defendants should have reasonably modified their procedures in restraining E.P.

2005 - Trial Day 64
Michael goes to court with Katherine, Joe & Randy
Judge Melville gives the Jury the rules of Jury Deliberations
Michael Jackson sat quietly in court as the 12 jurors were given their instructions ahead of closing arguments from both sides.
"You've heard all of the evidence and you will hear the arguments of attorneys," Judge Rodney Melville told the jury. He told them to make their decision without "pity for or prejudice toward" the defendant.
The eight women & four men who will decide his fate will hear closing arguments today and could begin their deliberations as early as Friday (it is currently Wednesday). Jurors are expected to hammer out their decision behind closed doors for about six hours a day until they reach their verdict or announce a deadlock.
The charges against Jackson consist of four counts of molestation, four counts of giving the boy alcohol in order to abuse him, one count of conspiracy and one of attempted molestation.
Jurors were told they could consider the four alcohol counts as lesser charges of "furnishing alcohol to a minor." This would be considered a misdemeanor and means that the jury would not have to relate the alcohol to any intended molestation.
Judge Melville told jurors not to consider the four videos played in the trial for the truth of any remarks made in them, except for certain statements that prosecutors claim are admissions from Jackson. These statements will be outlined in a document to be provided by prosecutors.
The Judge also instructed the jury on how to consider the past allegations against Jackson. He said that if they determine he does have such a history, "you may but are not required to infer that the defendant had a predisposition" to commit the crimes alleged in this case.
But he added that is not sufficient in itself to prove he committed the crimes charged
He also told them not to infer anything from the fact Jackson himself had decided not to testify.
Thomas Mesereau will deliver closing arguments for the defense while Deputy District Attorney Ron Zonen is expected to deliver the prosecutions closing statements.
2005\* - Michael allows visits from fans inside his home while awaiting the verdict. They're impressed by his generosity given the circumstances.

2007\* - Michael, Grace and the kids leave their Las Vegas house and fly to Middleburg, Virginia. They check into the Goodstone Inn, a 640-acre estate of open pastures, for a summer vacation. They are welcomed by Raymone Bain.
2007\* - Michael “Brother Michael” Amir Williams is hired as Michael’s new assistant.
2008\* - Michael and producer Neff-U start working on songs at 'Thriller Villa', his 2710 Palomino Lane home, in Las Vegas. They work on a new version of “A Place With No Name”.
2008\* - Late in the month, Michael's duet with Akon, "Hold My Hand" is leaked online. Michael is devastated
Longtime recording engineer, Michael Prince, who was working with Jackson at the time “Hold My Hand” leaked, recalls:
“He was truly upset when the song he did with Akon leaked. He would just get this sad look on his face like, how could this happen? Because 20 years ago this would not have happened. And somehow everybody in the world has a copy of it. And that really upset him because he liked that song a lot.”Akon gave a detailed account of the events surrounding the leak during an appearance on Tavis Smiley’s PBS television show in January 2009:
“Me and Mike did this incredible record called Hold My Hand and the record is amazing. Phenomenal. And the concept was that this would be Mike’s first release off of his new album, and then I would stripe it on my album – on my following release. That way we could have the outlets open for everyone to be able to receive the record. You know, Mike came up with this brilliant marketing launch for the record. You know, he’s the best at launching a record.”Akon continues:
“He’d have the whole world paying attention in two minutes… And before we could get to that point, the record got leaked over the internet. And we got over 15 million downloads on the song for free. So we couldn’t [release it]. You can’t at that point. Everybody already has the record. But in a way, you gotta look at it like… that’s just a gift to the fans.”2008\* - (Late June) Michael hires Dr Thome Thome as his new manager and president of MJJ Productions.

2023.06.01 12:51 NGSpy 7 Day Ban - /u/Griffonomics
Good evening AustraliaSim,submitted by NGSpy to AustraliaSimMeta [link] [comments]
Due to events that proceeded the banning of nivea_chapstick, we have handed down a 7 day ban to Griffonomics for Vexatious Complaints, impersonating another other Members and giving false information in an investigation. This is an extremely generous ban because I am only handing down a 7 day ban for the first incidence of Vexatious Complaints.
The Code of Conduct on these matters state:
Impersonation of other Members
Also in the Discord Community Guidelines, it states:
Do not share false or misleading information (otherwise known as misinformation). Content that is false, misleading, and can lead to significant risk of physical or societal harm may not be shared on Discord. We may remove content if we reasonably believe its spread could result in damage to physical infrastructure, injury of others, obstruction of participation in civic processes, or the endangerment of public health.Evidence of this is attached here (with commentary on request of community managers and Griffonomics, quite rightly). All this evidence is in chronological order.
Context: This happened at the time where nivea_chapstick was banned permanently, and I requested that all leaders and contacts do indeed get rid of him from the server.
Here, we see Griffonomics state that Deepfriedhookers was never in his server, and calling 'you all' fools. 'You all' isn't clarified here, but is clarified later on by Griffonomics.
Here, it is clear that Griffonomics clearly meant to refer to the moderators as 'fools', calling moderators 'highly regarded', an AustraliaSim euphemism for 'highly r*tarted'. Trask attempts to clarify why the moderation team's decision is correct, and Griffonomics implies that the moderators fell for a rouse.
Which is yet again clarified here.
Griffonomics clearly finds this amusing, and calls myself and Trask, moderators of the community 'idiots'. This shows a clear motive by Griffonomics for his upcoming actions to humiliate and make fun of the moderators, highlighting the vexatious nature of his complaints, as well as the nature of his misleading evidence, and the claim of another member.
Griffonomics has reiterated that the moderators have fallen for a 'great bamboozle' which isn't clarified yet, but within context meant that we believed that the discord user 'chin chin' (attached to the nivea_chapstick account) was indeed deepfriedhookers alternate account. This would have compromised the permanent ban that we imposed on nivea_chapstick.
Griffonomics then engages in impersonation of a member, which includes 'claiming to be another member in the chat' according to the Code of Conduct. This would result in a 'Caution' for a first offence in the Code of Conduct.
Griffonomics clearly doubles down on his impersonation of a member claim, claiming that it started as an alternative account which he then gave to a friend. As having an undeclared alternative account is against the rules of AustraliaSim, the Moderation Team are obliged to investigate and gather possible evidence.
He Direct Messaged me during this period on the pretense that he was actually chin chin, and thus may be permanently banned as a member for alting, and doxing members on ModelUSGov. This would've been evidence used to determine if Griffo was indeed an alternative account of deepfriedhookers. He later on states that it is indeed not him who is nivea_chapstick, therefore satisfying the criteria of giving 'false or misleading evidence....during a Code of Conduct hearing'.
Part 2 of the above DMs.
After this direct message exchange with Griffonomics, he proceeds to be amused and glee that he has 'bamboozled' the moderators, showing that the complaint he made was not at all serious but vexatious. This means that he has made a vexatious complaint according to the Code of Conduct, and thus faces a 7 day ban for a first instance, the final sentence settled on by myself.
Another clear indicator he knew it was a vexatious complaint.
Rather than acknowledging guilt for 'wast[ing] moderator time with false bullshit' as Gredsen rightly points out, Griffonomics appears to blame the moderators for 'choosing to time waste'. This is despite the context of the situation being that Griffonomics claimed to be a member who previously doxxed and harassed members in MUSGOV, and thus any evidence in regards to this situation would be taken seriously by moderators in order to protect the AustraliaSim community.
The inappropriate vexatious nature of this impersonation, false evidence giving and complaints by Griffonomics is self-reported to be a 'meme' by him.
This evidence therefore concludes successfully that Griffonomics committed the three breaches described at the beginning of the post, and thus the 7 Day ban is appropriate.
