    THIS is the powerful moment an Afghan women bravely stared down the barrel of a Taliban militants gun as chaos erupted on the streets on Kabul.    The defining image, which was posted online, came amid a female lead protest in the capital on Tuesday as the terror group continues to brutally clamp down on their freedoms. 8The woman bravely stares down a gunman who was aiming at her chest The Sun previously reported that the heavily armed extremists opened fire with machine guns in order to break up the march. At the time, protesters - many of whom were women - were reportedly chanting for "freedom" as hundreds of people flooded the streets waving placards and the former flag of Afghanistan. Taliban forces have continued to face opposition as they surged back to the power - even as the group claimed to have crushed the final pocket of resistance in the Panjshir Valley. Chaos erupted as the protesters chanted slogans such as "Long live the resistance" and also took aim at neighbouring Pakistan, who some Afghans have...
    Darren Agee Merager, 52, who is accused of indecent exposure at Wi Spa in LA, has a long criminal history, including burglaries and trespassing, and failing to register as a sex offender A person accused of indecent exposure by allegedly exposing their naked, half-erect penis to women at a Los Angeles spa has a long criminal record including previous sex offences, burglaries and trespass. On Monday, Los Angeles police issued an arrest warrant for Darren Agee Merager, 52. The LA District Attorney has filed five charges of indecent exposure. Merager claims they are a victim of transphobia, and said they will be turning themselves in to fight the case in court. Neighbors, associates and court records for Merager, who was born a male, paint a picture of a troubled and lawless transient, who avoids their parents’ conservative Riverside neighborhood and has a history of exposing themselves in women’s locker rooms.

    From the moment you step out of your home, the fear is palpable. On the crowded streets of Kabul people gather in huddles, just one question on their lips: ‘When will they get here?’ The answer could be all too soon: as I write, Taliban forces — the ‘they’ to which everyone refers — are just 50 miles from my home city, heading determinedly towards the capital they are resolved will be under their control within days. And they are right to be confident. One Afghan region after another — including half of the country’s 34 provincial capitals — has fallen to this violent and bloody regime and its brutal ‘laws’ with terrifying speed.

    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks stated that one of the reasons why New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) sexual misconduct continued for the length of time it did is because there was “a climate where there aren’t that many women at the top. So, it’s a male culture, and people are willing to look the other way.” Brooks stated that Cuomo’s behavior continued for as long as it did due to, “One, power of intimidation, which is really strong. Two, a climate where there aren’t that many women at the top. So, it’s a male culture, and people are willing to look the other way. Third, Albany is a little isolated. And the governor has a lot of power to intimidate a lot of people throughout the community. And so — but the lesson of — and then just what we’ve learned, since MeToo is that it — well, it went on for 4,000 years. And so, the fact that it’s still dragging on in various places shouldn’t surprise us. It was the norm in a lot...
    Shy teen Gavin Hubbard led his school boy's weightlifting team to glory long before most of his fellow female Olympic competitors were even born. Today, having gender transitioned and become Laurel Hubbard in 2012, she is hoping to claim a medal for New Zealand in the women's 87+kg event in Tokyo. She stunned the world in 2017 when she burst onto the scene after a 16-year hiatus from the sport which she said she had taken up as a boy to appear more masculine before the pressure of living as a man became too much to bear. Hubbard was born in 1978 to Diana Reader and breakfast cereals tycoon and former Mayor of Auckland Richard 'Dick' Hubbard.   Students from her 1994 graduating class remember her only as 'Gavin' - an academic and quiet student who spent most of his days training in the gym at the exclusive $22,000-a-year Saint Kentigern Boys' College.  Laurel just before she transitioned at 35 years old with her parents Diana Reader and former Mayor of Auckland Richard 'Dick' Hubbard' (centre) Hubbard (circled, as Gavin) transitioned...
    Men with long features and large eyes, and women with slim faces and small eyes are percieved as more promiscuous, a new study has revealed.  However, this perception only rings true for men, and not for women, according to the researchers. In the study, experts in Australia asked heterosexual men and women about their levels of 'sociosexuality' – the willingness to engage in sexual activity outside of a committed relationship, also known as casual sex. The participants also had their photos taken and shown to other participants of the opposite sex, so they could judge, based on looks alone, if they had an interest in sociosexuality.  Men who were open to casual sex typically had longer faces, higher foreheads, longer noses and larger eyes, the team found.   What's more, women accurately identified these male facial features as indicators of the guys' interest in casual sex.    However, men wrongly perceived smaller, more gracile female faces featuring smaller eyes and smaller lips to be an indicator of women's openness to causal sex.  So while these may be the physical traits men look for when up for...
    Naked, blindfolded and bound in her captor’s apartment, Lisa McVey had just one thing on her mind — survival.  Hours earlier, the petite 17-year-old had been snatched at gunpoint while cycling home from her job in a cafe. The man who had bundled her off her bike and into his car was Bobby Joe Long, a serial killer who had mutilated and murdered eight women in Tampa, Florida. A vast police taskforce had hunted in vain to find him — and now he had abducted the woman he intended to be victim No 9.

    Osaka didn't create the conflict between the overwhelmingly white tennis establishment and its Black women stars; she just protected herself from it. AP Photo/Lynne Sladky Naomi Osaka withdrew from the French Open after getting fined $15K for skipping a press conference. The four-time Grand Slam champ said she gets "huge waves of anxiety" before speaking to the media. A history of poor treatment towards women of color in tennis undoubtedly informed Osaka's decision. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Naomi Osaka may be at the center of the sports' latest controversy, but years of history have contributed to the mess she and the tennis world are facing. Ahead of this year's French Open, the four-time Grand Slam champion announced that she would be opting out of her media obligations because participating in press conferences harms her mental health. Then, when Osaka followed through and skipped the news conference following her first-round win at Roland Garros on Sunday, the tournament organizers fined the 23-year-old superstar $15,000.

    Robert Aaron Long, 21, killed eight people - six Asian women, a white woman and a white man - in a three-hour crime spree at three different spas on Tuesday. Georgia police have been branded racist after saying the gunman in Tuesday's shootings at three massage spas was having a 'bad day' when he killed six Asian women and two white people.   Robert Aaron Long, 21, killed eight people - six Asian women, a white woman and a white man - in a three-hour crime spree at three different spas on Tuesday. Four of the women were of Korean descent.  'He was at the end of his rope and yesterday was a really bad day for him and this is what he did,' Cherokee police Captain Jay Baker said at a press conference.   After being run off the road and taken into custody, he told police that he was not motivated by racism but that he has a sex addiction that he blames the spas for.  Police said that it was too early to entirely rule out that racism might...
    News trackers were not impressed by Atlanta police officials when they spoke about the possible motivations behind the deadly shootings at 3 massage parlors in the area. Cherokee City Sheriff Frank Reynolds held a press conference on Wednesday where he told reporters that Robert Aaron Long, the suspected gunman, had a “sexual addiction” and may have frequented the spas in the past. Reynolds said racial bias “did not appear to be” Long’s motive based on initial interviews, and at another point in the conference, Captain Jay Baker described Long as “fed up, at the end of his rope, and yesterday was a really bad day for him and this is what he did.” Among the 8 people killed in the attack, six of them were Asian women, so the shooting has raised questions about whether this is the latest in a recent surge of hate crimes against Asian Americans. With all of these factors combined, the Atlanta police force was slammed on Twitter for describing the attack as a “bad day” for Long, and for acting as stenographers by taking...
    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Prominent activist Sima Samar has been fighting for women’s rights in Afghanistan for the past 40 years. She believes her struggle is far from over — especially at a time when violence is on the rise, peace talks between rival Afghan groups are stuck and the U.S. mulls a May departure from her country. Samar, 64, worries about the future, noting that insecurity and instability in Afghanistan have reached frightening levels. “No one knows what will happen tomorrow,” she said in an interview at her home in the Afghan capital, Kabul, protected by blast walls, guards and a German shepherd, who races to his vantage point overlooking the street when a car even slows as it passes. Yet much is at stake and “a lot of sacrifices have been made in these 20 years,” she said, reflecting the anxiety among civil society leaders as the U.S. searches for the best exit from its longest war. Under a 2020 deal between the Taliban and the Trump administration, all U.S. troops are to leave Afghanistan by May 1....

    Japan’s ruling party has proposed to invite women to attend key meetings - so long as they do not speak – days after its Olympics chief was forced to resign for his sexist comments. Leaders of the Liberal Democratic Party decided to allow five female lawmakers to observe its all-male board meetings during which the women are forbidden from talking. The new proposal comes after a sexism row was sparked by Tokyo Olympics chief, Yoshiro Mori, who claimed that women prolonged meetings because they spoke too much.

    MOSCOW – Muscovite Sofia Dorofeyeva had always been drawn to the trains traveling across the vast expanses of her native Russia but until this year she and her female compatriots had been barred from occupying the driver’s seat. Russia, from Jan. 1, shortened the list of jobs it bars women from holding because of their physical demands or hazardous nature, allowing them to become metro drivers, train conductors and lorry drivers. After graduating in 2020 from a college that trains public transportation workers, Dorofeyeva eagerly awaited the start of the year to become an assistant train driver. “All of us women who wanted to get this job had been waiting for a very long time,” said the 21-year-old, who for years had been sketching anime-like illustrations of trains and female conductors, foreshadowing her profession. This combination of handout pictures created and released by the Moscow transport department on January 1, 2021 shows female train drivers posing for a picture inside the cab of a train at a depot in Moscow.

    Fans were convinced that Gareth Bale was watching the Masters instead of playing for Wales The Winery Everyone Is Talking About In Your State The economy as we knew it might be over, Fed Chairman says The Covid-19 pandemic brought the economy to a screeching halt, and while it has started its long road to recovery, the economy we knew is probably a thing of the past, said Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Thursday. © Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg/Getty Images "We're recovering, but to a different economy," Powell said during a virtual panel discussion at the European Central Bank's Forum on Central Banking. Load Error The pandemic has accelerated existing trends in the economy and society, including the increasing use of technology, telework and automation, he said. This will have lasting effects on how people live and work. While technological advances are generally positive for societies over the long term, Powell said, on a short-term basis they create disruption, and as the market adjusts to the new normal the pain isn't shared evenly. For example, it's likely that...
    Alanah Nichole Davis October 31, 2020 11:29PM (UTC) "There is no greater warrior than a mother protecting her child." — N.K. Jemisin "Mommy, I want to come with you." My oldest daughter often beckons to me with a quivering lip and puppy dog eyes when I'm headed for the door. Any parent knows how unequivocally hard it is to tell an eight-year-old "no" — or any child, for that matter. Despite how hard it may be, I do it often to both of my little girls. : I myself am no stranger to that word, being born in the Bronx, the Boogie Down — Webster Avenue and Third Avenue, to be precise.

Her tongue was sharp and her eyes were sharper. She could foil plans for my...
    (CNN)Women's health is about far more than reproductive health.That was true long before the coronavirus pandemic struck, says Maya Dusenbery, author of "Doing Harm: The Truth About How Bad Medicine and Lazy Science Leave Women Dismissed, Misdiagnosed, and Sick."Women already face many inequities in the health care system, documented in Dusenbery's 2017 book, including dismissal of symptoms and lack of gender-based research. During the pandemic, those same inequities may be exacerbating women's treatment.A chronic lack of Covid-19 testing in the United States makes it harder for women to prove their symptoms are real, and long-standing biases about women and hysteria can leave women at a loss when trying to explain the disease's "long-haul" symptoms.Here, Dusenbery explains how the current global crisis exposes how gender weighs on the health care system.

    Women are found to partake in 'risky drinking' as the age, study reveals. Researcher found that women in their 50s and 60s are consuming more alcohol than what is deemed safe for their age.  Their report, published in the journal of Sociology of Health & Illness, found that the participants were more likely than women in their 20s and 30s to drinking at levels exceeding low-risk drinking guidelines.   The subjects said they were aware of the health risks that come with drinking excessively, but are not concerned about overdoing it as long as they stay in control and do not embarrass themselves in public.  Scroll down for video   A study of women ages 50 to 69 found levels of heavy drinking higher than among younger women. 'When you get to our age, you should be able to do pretty much what you want if it doesn't hurt other people and it's not too detrimental to you,' one 57-year-old said Researchers at Edith Cowan University investigated alcohol use among 49 women between the ages of 50 and 69 in Denmark and...
