WOODLAND — Chris Becker has been in and out of jail. Not because of blatant criminality, but because Becker’s bipolar disorder triggered behaviors that brought out police. One time, he called police himself because he was getting deeply paranoid; but when the “wrong” officers showed up, he said, he protested violently and got himself tossed in the clink.Becker’s stays in county jails and at Western State Hospital, a psychiatric facility for criminals with mental illness, were nothing short of brutal, he said.“Gladiator school” is how Becker, 40, described one holding cell at Western State. “It was one of the most violent places I’ve ever seen,” he said. If you were one of the smaller, scareder guys in the mostly unsupervised room, he said, good luck. After being repeatedly assaulted by a fellow inmate, Becker told an orderly he was getting ready to unleash one knockout punch; the orderly asked Becker to wait until the next staffer’s shift because of the inevitable paperwork.Becker pulled himself together and got out of Western in one piece, but he never forgot the hapless folks whose problems were only made worse behind bars. He spent years as a state-certified peer support counselor with various Clark County social service agencies that work with the mentally ill homeless; now, he’s joined forces with friends in Woodland to launch a multifaceted nonprofit agency that reaches out to people in jail — as well as people on the street.“I have always had a heart for helping people. It’s just the right thing to do,” said Mike Rindahl, Becker’s buddy, who is president of the board of StreetReach NW.
Lack of premium mass strategy begs questions of SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace launch: analysts A stalled US$1 billion tribal casino project between Genting Malaysia and the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe in Massachusetts could soon be back on track following reports that the US House of Representatives is set to fast-track a key casino bill.The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Reservation Reaffirmation Act, a bill that would essentially end ongoing legal action that has prevented development of the proposed “First Light” casino since 2016 by reaffirming 321 acres of land, is set to be rushed to the House floor as early as next Monday, bypassing the usual committee review. RelatedPosts Genting’s Resorts World Las Vegas names five key additions to executive team Strong VIP growth sees Okada Manila GGR climb 72% in August Load More Rep. William Keating, who reintroduced the bill in January, issued a statement this week in which he expressed confidence the bill would be taken up.“I have been working with members across the aisle, with members in both parties on the committee of jurisdiction and with Democratic leaders in charge of floor action,” Keating said. “I feel very positive about the bill’s progress toward a vote.”If Keating’s confidence proves well placed, it would provide a significant boost to both the Wampanoag Tribe in Massachusetts, which is reportedly struggling financially, and Genting Malaysia which has spent the past three years propping it up.In its 3Q18 financial results issued in December, Genting Malaysia reported a net loss of MYR791.7 million (US$195 million) on its investment in the wake of a September ruling by the US Department of Interior that Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe could not develop its planned IR. Genting Malaysia had previously purchased promissory notes to the value of US$426.3 million issued by the Tribe.It has also been reported that Genting Malaysia has loaned the Tribe around US$500 million against future casino profits, however in its 2018 earnings release the company revealed that further loan payments would now cease.Genting stated in December that it was continuing to “work closely with the Tribe on options which include a legislation being introduced in the US Congress which, if passed, will entail the US Federal Government to reaffirm the land in trust for the benefit of the Tribe.“The impairment loss can be reversed when the promissory notes are assessed to be recoverable.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had last week hinted at privatization in the Indian Railways in order to improve facilities on par with that of airlines. With the Rail Budget due to be presented today, here is a look at how privatization can transform the railways, vis-à-vis the railway network in Japan that is known to be the world’s best.Japan was one of the few nations to keep its railway network open to the private sector after the Second World War, while several in the West had nationalized their railways, according to City Lab. It was in 1987 that the government had privatized the Japanese National Railway, which went on to become a profitable venture, reversing stagnation and bringing about improvement of the network.A study by professor Kenichi Shoji from Kobe University in 2001 pins the success of the Japanese transport to the fact that railway operators are privately owned, which have diversified the business to ‘not only survive but thrive’. One example it lists to illustrate the success is that private railway companies have taken up initiative of developing areas where their networks function.Here are some of the points the study highlights and how it contrasts with the situation of Indian railways –Japanese rail networks are self-supporting, which means that it generates money for its own operating and infrastructure cost. In India, the Railways is a state-owned enterprise, which makes the government run into losses to fund it.The Japanese transportation policy is based on what the users pay, which means that only market-viable services function. In countries such as India, fare revenue is not the primary means to fund the railways. The study points out that Japanese operators have a farebox ratio (the extent to which operating expenses are met by passenger fare revenue) of more than 100 percent. On the other hand, rail fare hikes in India are met with vehement protests, as was seen recently when Finance Minister Arun Jaitley hiked railway passenger fare by 14.2 percent, a move he defended saying was necessary to keep the railways alive.Another point of difference has been the objective of public transport system in Japan and in India. In India, the railway sector has a more ‘public-interest’ approach, which has led it to create large networks and offer low fares. However, the study shows that such an approach inevitably leads to inefficiencies in service and operation, which is true of the Indian Railways. Japan on the other hand has taken a ‘profitability’ approach through the private sector role. Private railways operate on a commercial basis, and such a system is said to be profitable in Japan partly because of its large traffic volumes, which is similar to India.Another point of difference where India can definitely borrow a few tips from the Japanese Railway network is that since it is privately driven there is scope for ‘long term business strategies’, which is usually not possible when political parties take power for a period of five years.With Modi aiming to bring in private companies to the Railways sector, the story may change for the Indian Railways, too. In a sign of change to come, India has already sought investment from Japan to bring in high-speed bullet trains, as reported by Outlook.
Tea trees. File PhotoTea prices in Bangladesh rose at the weekly auction for the 11th time in a row on strong demand for quality leaf and tight supplies.Bangladeshi tea fetched an average of 283.27 taka ($2.7) per kg in the port city of Chittagong on Tuesday, compared with 276.34 taka at the previous sale.There was robust demand from buyers while supplies were lower than the last sale, an official at National Brokers said.About 4.3 per cent of the 2.33 million kg offered in the auction was left unsold. At the previous auction, around 2.48 million kg was offered, of which 2.2 per cent went unsold.Bangladesh’s tea production dropped to nearly 79 million kg in 2017 from a record 85 million kg the previous year, which officials attributed to excessive rainfall.The South Asian country was the world’s fifth-largest tea exporter in the 1990s, but is now a net importer as the surge in domestic consumption is in line with economic growth.Following are the results of the latest auction (figures in Bangladesh taka per kg):BROKENSBold/Large Brokens 280-285Medium Brokens 282-287Small Brokens 282-287Plain Brokens 220-260FANNINGSBest Fannings 286-288Good Fannings 283-285Medium Fannings 280-282Plain Fannings 220-265DUSTPekoe Dust 280-280Red Dust 240-301Dust 245-301Churamoni Dust 267-317
Stay on target Google this week announced a new initiative to integrate sustainability into its consumer hardware products.The tech titan—set to turn 20 in September—jumped on the smart-device bandwagon just a few years ago.But every Pixel phone and Home Mini speaker it makes requires a lot of resources and generates even more waste.AdChoices广告So Google is going green.“It’s an ongoing endeavor that involves designing in sustainability from the start and embedding it into the entire product development process and across our operations, all while creating the products our customers want,” Anna Meegan, head of sustainability for consumer hardware, wrote in a blog post.The woke company on Monday outlined its efforts to be more environmentally friendly, starting with the short-term goal of making all shipments to and from customers carbon neutral by next year.(That’s far superior to Amazon’s hope of netting 50 percent zero carbon by 2030.)And, starting in 2022, 100 percent of Made by Google products will include recycled materials, with a drive to maximize recycled content “wherever possible,” the firm announced.Just how much of each device will comprise reclaimed parts remains unclear. Though even 1 percent is better than nothing.“These commitments build on the foundation and progress we’ve already made,” Meegan said, pointing to a 40 percent decrease in Google’s carbon emissions from 2017 to 2018.Last year, the company began publishing product environment reports, making public details about what products are made of, how they’re built, and how they get shipped.“We’re always working to do more, faster,” Meegan wrote. “But today we’re laying the foundation for what we believe will be a way of doing business that commits to building better products better.”More on Geek.com:Tokyo 2020 Unveils Olympic Medals Made From Old ElectronicsSamsung to Ditch Oil-Based Plastic for Sustainable PackagingStarbucks Will Test ‘Greener,’ Recyclable Cups in Stores Soon10 Things You Shouldn’t Be Putting In Your Recycle Bin Easily Assign Tasks With Google AssistantLGBTQ+ Video Creators Sue YouTube, Google

GAYSTARNEWS- The openly bisexual actor stood up with CEO and founder of RISE, Amanda Nguyen; RISE chief of staff Lauren Libby; and the vice president of the Rape Abuse Incest National Network (RAINN), Rebecca O’Connor.They spoke to the House Judiciary Committee as part of an effort to get the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights Act implemented in all 50 states.As of now, only nine states have adopted the legislation.During the hearing, Republican Bob Goodlatte explained how the Act works:This legislation assured that in federal cases, a victim would have the right to have their rape kit preserved for the duration of the statute of limitations or up to 20 years; a victim would not have to pay for their own forensic examination; a victim would be informed of any results of their forensic examination; would be provided with written policies on forensic testing kits; and finally, would be informed before their sexual assault examination kit was destroyed and be permitted to request further preservation.This could save a lifeWood shared her own story of abuse — and stressed the importance of this bill for survivors.‘I’m here today to use my position as an artist, survivor, mother, and advocate to bring a human voice to the population of 25 million survivors in the U.S. who are currently experiencing inequality under the law and who desperately need basic civil rights,’ she said.‘It’s a safety net that may help save someone’s life one day.’Creating herstory. | Photo: Instagram @evanrachelwood She admitted it was a ‘struggle’ to speak about this topic, but also necessary.‘If you can’t hear the whole truth you will never know true empathy, and I believe in the saying “If we have to live through it then you should have to hear it.”‘Wood, who has long been vocal about bisexuality, has spoken up about sexual assault before. Recently, she criticized Ben Affleck for saying he became a ‘serious actor’ when he kissed a man in Chasing Amy.‘I still struggle with the aftermath’Years ago, Wood said, she was in a relationship with a partner who verbally, physically, and sexually abused her. She said the partner raped her while they believed she was unconscious.‘While no one had to tell me that rape was such a worldwide epidemic, to see the flood of stories so similar to my own was both freeing and soul-crushing,’ she revealed.‘Waves of memories and details came flooding into my brain every time I read the words. I froze. I thought I was the only human who’d experienced this and I carried so much guilt and confusion about my response to the abuse.’She also said she still struggles with the aftermath.‘My relationships suffer, my partner suffers, my mental and physical health suffers. … Rape is often more than a few minutes of trauma, but a slow death.’At the end of her testifying, she spoke of her son.‘This makes me think of my son and the world that he will be raised in and the day I will have to explain to him what rape means and why it happened to his mother. … So I’m also here to advocate for men and for my son, who I hope grows up knowing he’s much more valuable than that and who I can only hope I will set an example for by continuing to fight for him and myself and for all the people affected by abuse, because that is our job as parents and as leaders.’Her comments begin around the 18:30 mark.[embedded content]Got a news tip?

As NBA 2K League holds expansion draft, MLSE looks to expand esports presence While expansion franchises Atlanta, Minnesota, Brooklyn and Los Angeles Lakers start stocking their rosters in the NBA 2K League expansion draft Wednesday, the people behind Raptors Uprising GC are looking to expand their esports presence in Toronto.Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment says the first year of the NBA esports circuit was an eye-opener.“It was learning the business of esports but also learning what we can transfer in terms of what we’ve been successful with in traditional sports to esports, but also vice-versa,” said Sumit Arora, MLSE’s senior director of strategy. “And how do we give back to traditional sports what we’re seeing as being really successful in building fan engagement in the esports world.”Knicks Gaming were crowned the inaugural NBA 2K League champions Aug. 25, defeating Heat Check Gaming 2-0 in the best-of-three final. Organizers noted it was the Knicks franchise’s first championship since 1973.Raptors Uprising finished fourth with an 8-6 record, rallying from a 1-5 start to make the playoffs where it lost 77-65 to Cavs Legion GC. The Cavs were then beaten by Knicks Gaming in the semifinal.“Overall we’re very proud of the season,” said Shane Talbot, MLSE’s esports manager. “The 1-5 start put us in quite a hole and meant that we had to execute with near perfection for the remaining 10 weeks of the season to get into the playoffs.”Raptors Uprising was honoured with the league’s 2018 Community Engagement Award.“We wanted to win and to a certain extent we did — we were proud of the fourth-place finish and clinching the playoffs (spot),” said Talbot. “We wanted to engage fans and to learn the business of esports within the confines of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment and I think we did all of those things.”The 17 original NBA 2K League teams are able to protect two players from the expansion draft, with Raptors Uprising opting for Kenneth (Kenny) Hailey and Trevion (All Hail Trey) Hendrix.“Kenny is one of those guys who is able to remain completely calm under pressure,” said Talbot. “It’s probably an overused expression but he’s got ice in his veins … He’s definitely the kind of player that rises to the occasion.”Hendrix also excels under pressure, he added.The original 102 gamers in the league, who got a salary plus room and board, were drawn from a pool of more than 72,000 who entered qualifying.Hailey, a native of Memphis, was drafted 11th overall. Hendrix, from Hot Springs, Ark., went in the fourth round, 58th overall. The 28-year-old Hailey was working for AT&T as a distribution co-ordinator until he quit his job to game professionally. Hendrix, 22, was working at a steak house.The other Raptors gamers — Toronto’s Yusuf (Yusuf_Scarbz) Abdulla and Americans Christopher (Detoxys) Doyle, Seanquai (KingQuai614) Harris and Joshua (TsJosh) McKenna — are eligible for the expansion draft.Atlanta will pick first from the pool of 68 eligible players followed by Brooklyn, Minnesota and Los Angeles. Each of the expansion teams will make two picks.Only one player from each of the original 17 teams can be selected in the expansion draft.NBA teams are looking for other ways to connect with their esports side. Orlando’s Magic Gaming, for example, has struck a partnership with the AS Monaco soccer club.“By launching this esport partnership with a club as prestigious as the Orlando Magic, AS Monaco is looking to seize the opportunity to develop its image in North America and to create innovative content and activations for our respective fans,” Jean-Philippe Dubois, Monaco’s head of digital, said in a statement. “This partnership is fully in line with the club’s digital strategy, to announce us as a pioneering and bold club.”Talbot says Raptors Uprising found its playing identity as the season wore on, pointing to a key training session with the Detroit entry, Pistons GT.“The boot camp in Detroit allowed us to experiment with a number of different rosters over a couple of days and we landed on one that just seemed to be unbeatable against Detroit and that was the one we ended up running for the remainder of the season.”The lineup they settled on was McKenna at point guard, Abdulla at shooting guard, Hailey at small forward, Hendrix at power forward and Harris at centre.The Raptors gamers lived and trained together in Toronto, commuting to New York on weekends to play virtual games in a studio before a live audience and those watching on the popular Twitch gaming channel. They play five-versus-five with each gamer controlling his own player.MLSE also has FIFA gamer Philip Balke carrying the Toronto FC colours in esports. Hockey is the next frontier.“We’re definitely interested in find a way to get hockey fans connected to esports … We working on a bunch of very cool ideas,” said Arora.The 2018 NHL Gaming World Championship Final took place June 19 at the Esports Arena Las Vegas with Finland’s Erik Tammenpaa winning the inaugural championship and US$50,000.Arora says it is just a matter of time before the NHL takes a larger step into esports.“The NHL has definitely talked to teams likes ours on how to grow that and which way to go. Right now everybody is in sort of an evaluation mode and experimentation mode which I think is great. But I think the interest is there.”Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter by Neil Davidson, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 25, 2018 10:39 am PDT Last Updated Sep 25, 2018 at 11:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email

reprehensible" Same-sex marriage opponents also argue that there is a form of reverse discrimination going onthat their views against same-sex marriage should be tolerated and protected just like the views of people who support it "Unfortunately same-sex marriage advocates have increasingly treated people who believe in traditional marriage as the legal equivalent of bigots and even racists" Frank Schubert political director for the National Organization for Marriage tells TIME in an email "They brook no disagreement with their ideology and they tolerate no dissent Therefore legislation like this in Kansas becomes necessary to assure that people are not forced to personally be part of something they cannot in good conscience support There are plenty of people willing to serve a gay marriage ceremony without having to force everyone to do so" But the implications of bill in Kansas its critics emphasize go far beyond wedding ceremonies The measure explicitly states that no individual has to treat any marriageof any orientationas valid if it "would be contrary to the sincerely held religious beliefs" and can refuse to provide services like adoption counseling or employment benefits related to the celebration of any such marriage Those individuals would be protected from civil lawsuits that might arise as a result of that denial "The language of the bill really allows discrimination in virtually every aspect of somebodys life" says Rho She says the language could potentially protect an employer who for instance chose not to promote a woman because she was not as submissive in her heterosexual marriage as his religion dictated just as much as a vendor who refused to sell wedding rings to a lesbian couple "Theyre really opening the door for all kinds of litigation" she says Sarah Warbelow state legislative director for the Human Rights Campaign a gay rights advocacy group says theyre monitoring more than a half-dozen bills related to refusal of services for same-sex couples across the country all introduced in 2014 Whether those bills in states like South Dakota and Tennessee can eventually stand as laws may be affected by upcoming Supreme Court cases she says The high court is still deciding whether it will hear an appeal from a New Mexico-based photographer who refused to take photos for a lesbian couple’s commitment ceremony And the court has agreed to hear a case involving Hobby Lobby While that case primarily concerns whether employers have to provide insurance coverage for birth control if it violates their religious beliefs Warbelow says that a ruling allowing Hobby Lobby to deny such coverage "certainly opens up the question of what other types of laws corporations can ignore simply because they have religious or moral objections" Warbelow says the freedom of speech and religion argument doesnt hold water "That isnt consistent with interpretation of civil rights law going back decades" she says "Once you open your doors to the general public you are expected to serve the general public provided that an individual can pay for the service" For now Miller says she expects Phillips will continue to refuse to make

allied warplanes have bombed targets inside Syria every day While that may seem an awful lot like war to those being pounded it hardly feels that way to most Americans When US troops are in combat on the ground they’re generally accompanied by reporters who in recent conflicts have been able to fill TV screens and the Internet with up-close scenes of the action But when the US elects to conduct an air war Americans generally witness the action from airborne targeting cameras or social-media posts from the ground Both of those of course have their own problems: footage released by the Pentagon

the ground gives a similarly incomplete and often suspect picture of what’s happening The US military’s assault against targets belonging to two groups of Islamic militants inside Syria has become almost background noise for most Americans Granted the airmen involved are at risk but the nation generally seems to focus on warand holds its breathonly when US ground troops are involved in combat

the network by a small antenna on the outside of the homeKanojia says he wants to offer an alternative to the roughly 75% of American households with no choice in their broadband provider (Many service providers enjoy local monopolies) To be sure other companies have tried to do the same including Clearwire which failed to take off and was acquired by Sprint in 2013Starry differs in that it uses high-frequency signals that may deliver better results The signals it employs have mostly been avoided by Internet providers because thick buildings and bad weather have proved confounding But experts increasingly view them as an underutilized resource that with the right technology could usher in the next wireless-communications breakthrough (Verizon and AT&T are also experimenting with the concept)Starry which has raised an undisclosed amount of first-round funding from investors including FirstMark Capital and IAC is also selling a new approach to distribute signals inside the home Its $350 router features a touchscreen interface and easy setup unlike the clunky black boxes familiar to most consumers The device which went on sale in May will work either with existing Internet service providers or with Starry’s service when it starts this summer "If there’s any group that is going to come through with a technological breakthrough here it is this team" says Amish Jani founder and managing director at FirstMarkStill Starry’s fundamental concept remains unproven says Christopher Yoo a professor at the University of Pennsylvania Law School One question is whether people will want to install new hardware outside their homes But the real challenge may be establishing a business model based on thin air Cord cutters who don’t want to pay for TV-and-Internet bundles are an obvious market–but still a small one "We have not announced pricing yet but you can imagine if you can provide similar or two times the speed at a really attractive price then it’s a good proposition for those people" says Kanojia And that’s an argument even big broadband companies may need to considerGenetically engineered crops pose no additional risks to humans and the

Parker made history on Tuesday by setting a new record for the biggest Sundance deal of all time: his film The Birth of a Nation was acquired by Fox Searchlight for $175 million well above the previous record for the festival considered to be held by Little Miss Sunshine for $10 million But that’s not the only history the film is poised to make: with its repurposed title the movie is stepping into some very big very notorious shoes Parker’s film tells the story of Nat Turner’s 1831 slave rebellion a critical event in African American history But it takes its title from another such event: DW Griffith’s iconic silent film about the Civil War a movie that both revolutionized the film industry and left a disgraceful societal legacy History Newsletter Stay on top of the history behind today’s news View Sample Sign Up Now Griffith’s 1915 film based on the Thomas Dixon Jr novel The Clansman tells the story of Northern and Southern gentlemen friends who must fight each other in the Civil War Afterward the emancipation of slaves (played here mainly by white men in blackface) changes their world in their view for the worse As the late great TIME film critic Richard Corliss wrote last year on the occasion of the film’s centennial: It is romantic chivalry Griffith insists that led to Southerners retaliations against Negroes A rapacious black man stalks a young white woman until to protect her virginity she leaps off a cliff to her death To avenge such indignities and defend the honor of white womanhood Ben Stoneman and his noble fellows give birth to the Ku Klux Klan (who in the films climax gallop to the rescue to the music of Wagners "Ride of the Valkyries") That racist realm not the restored United States is the true Nation of the films title: the land of lynchings voter suppression and second-class citizenship for Southern blacks The movie invented a whole new way of filmmaking: as TIME wrote in 1948 Griffith “rammed his camera into the middle of the action He took closeups crosscuts angle shots and dissolves His camera was alive picking off shots; then he built the shots into sequences the sequences into tense swift narrative” Movies were no longer just theater on screen but their own dynamic art form As Charlie Chaplin once said “The whole industry owes its existence to him” But the film (which made about $18 billion in today’s dollars) had repercussions outside Hollywood too Its depiction of the South as the land of white gentility and of blacks as sex-crazed savages “helped revive the dormant Ku Klux Klan which for the next few decades went on a righteous spree of killing black men” as Corliss wrote Even while black communities protested the film then-President Woodrow Wilson praised it as “like writing history with lightning” He invited Griffith to screen the film in the White House “the second film ever shown on the grounds of the White House and the first ever inside” as TIME wrote last year Despite its nasty legacy it continues to be taught as a landmark moment in film history a fact that has made some uncomfortable Spike Lee had to study the film in his first year of graduate school at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and swung back at the faculty by making a short film called The Answer It’s premise: A black filmmaker is tasked with making a big-budget studio remake of The Birth of a Nation “Resistance lives in the air in this current moment” Nate Parker told the Hollywood Reporter earlier this month “Anyone who sees this film should leave the theater and feel compelled to be a change factor with respect to relations that are taking place in this country But also they should be proud to be an American This country was built on rebellion” If Parker’s rebellious movie is as powerful as the big

childhood immunizations arent linked to autism In a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association a group led by Dr Anjali Jain of the Lewin Group a health care consulting organization found that brothers and sisters of children with autism were not at any higher risk of developing the disorder if they were vaccinated compared with brothers and sisters of those without autism The Brief Newsletter Sign up to receive the top stories you need to know right now View Sample Sign Up Now Numerous studies have found an increased risk of autism among those with older siblings with the condition and some parents who believe that their older childs autism is connected to vaccinations specifically the MMR vaccine have been reluctant to immunize their younger children Indeed Jain found that vaccination rates among siblings of autistic children were lower at about 86% at 5 years compared with 92% among those without autistic brothers or sisters But among the 95000 children with older siblings included in the study children who received the MMR and had autistic older siblings were no more likely to develop autism than children who were vaccinated and didnt have any autistic older siblings In fact the relative risk of autism among those with older autistic brothers or sisters was lower if they were vaccinated compared with those who were not vaccinated "Our study confirmed that in kids with older siblings who we know are at increased risk of developing autism themselves those kids are being vaccinated less" says Jain "But in the kids who did develop autism who were vaccinated there was no increased risk from the vaccine compared to kids who did not get the vaccine" The results she says should put to rest any concerns that parents of autistic children might have that vaccinating their younger kids will somehow increase their risk of developing autism The large size of the study and the fact that vaccination and autism information wasnt collected for purposes of a vaccines-and-autism study but as part of a larger health insurance database also reinforce the strength of the findings (The Lewin Group is an editorially independent part of Optum company which collected the data) "We may not understand what is causing autism in these kids or families" says Jain "There could be a host of both genetic and environmental factors But we are able to look at the vaccines themselves and show there is no association with autism" Read next: HPV Vaccine May Work for People Who Already Had the Virus Listen to the most important stories of

wrong I regret my comments and I sincerely apologize to anyone whom I have hurt" Alford said in a statement Monday according to the Topeka Capital-Journal Alford who has served in the state’s legislature since 2011 said on Saturday at a town hall that black people had a lower tolerance for marijuana because of the their “character makeup” and “genetics” the Garden City Telegram first reported "Basically any way you say it marijuana is an entry drug into the higher drugs" Alford said in response to a suggestion that pot legalization could raise money for the state of Kansas according to the Telegram "What you really need to do is go back in the 30s when they outlawed all types of drugs in Kansas [and] across the United States "What was the reason why they did that" he continued "One of the reasons why I hate to say it was that the African Americans they were basically users and they basically responded the worst off to those drugs just because of their character makeup their genetics and that” Several of Alford’s fellow lawmakers were stunned by the comments according to the Capital-Journal "I think that is outrageous" said Sen Oletha Faust-Goudeau a Democrat from Wichita the Capital-Journal reported "For a sitting state representative to say that I just cant believe it You cant put everybody into one category He should be more of a statesman and get facts" Prior to his apology Monday when the Telegram asked for clarification regarding his comments Alford stood by his initial stance but said that he shouldn’t have single out African-Americans "There are certain groups of people their genetics the way their makeup is the chemicals will affect them differently" Alford told the paper "Thats what I should have said was drugs affect people differently instead of being more specific" Alford did not immediately respond to TIME’s request for comment Contact us at editors@timecomDon and Maxine Simpson “and they’re probably safer now than
