Celebrity Dentist, Dr. Jay Grossman, Examines How a Homeless Veteran was Fatally Stabbed in Brentwood, CA

Dr. Jay Grossman

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — A man was arrested for allegedly stabbing and killing another man who intervened in a dispute between the suspect and his girlfriend at a homeless encampment in Brentwood near the West Los Angeles Veterans Affairs Medical Center Wednesday morning. The fatal stabbing was reported at about 6:40 a.m. in the 11600 block of San Vicente Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Celebrity dentist and Navy veteran, Dr. Jay Grossman, has some strong thoughts on this matter and believes officials need to get serious about the homeless crisis. "On the same corner that Homeless Not Toothless started 10,000 days ago (28+ years), across the street from the VA hospital is West Los Angeles, we have morphed from one person with a sign saying “will work for food, please help a veteran”, to an encampment of hundreds of homeless veterans sleeping on the street in tents draped with the American Flag," states Grossman.

Deputies found the victim with at least one stab wound and transported him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. A preliminary investigation revealed the suspect was in a dispute with his girlfriend when the victim intervened and was stabbed, sheriff's officials said in a news release. The woman was not injured. L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer, who is running for mayor, held a press conference outside the homeless encampment and called on the county to house the homeless veterans. He wants the encampment to be permanently removed from the street.

Grossman continues, "Considering the US has authorized over $100 million dollars in emergency funds for Afghan refugees, the question is apparent, why are we not putting resources into those who have fought for our freedom? Not only are local business impacted by the homeless sleeping on the streets, unable to walk the sidewalk because it is literally closed off with tents, but the sanitary conditions of this block of Brentwood is abhorrent. And now, we had a man stabbed to death in the encampment."

The suspect was detained at the scene by authorities and later taken to a hospital for medical clearance so he could be booked into jail, according to the sheriff's department. No weapon was retrieved from the scene. The names of the suspect and victim have not been released.

"What will it take for us to take care of others, to be kind to others, to stop the exorbitant number of veterans with untreated PTST, and a suicide rate that is a multiple of the general population. I am thrilled with the over $7-million dollars of free dental care Homeless Not Toothless has provided over the nearly 3-decades of service to those in need, and, much more needs to be done," concludes Grossman.

As cities recover from COVID-19, trends emerge to guide urban transformation: Deloitte Global report

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new Deloitte Global report on urban transformation identifies 12 trends cities need to act on as they seek sustainability, resilience, and prosperity in a post-COVID landscape. Urban Future with a Purpose: 12 trends shaping the future of cities by 2030 identifies how cities can use these trends as a guide to build back better by leveraging technology and innovation.

Although the pandemic disrupted the very core of urban living—from social distancing and lockdowns to destabilized local economies—cities remain well-placed to respond to crisis and set the rules for restoring vibrant, humanized communities. With their human capital, infrastructure, and scalability potential, urban centers can drive the change needed to create a green, digital, and inclusive society of the future.

“These 12 trends set the stage for what a resilient and sustainable urban future looks like,” says Miguel Eiras Antunes, Deloitte’s Global Smart City, Smart Nation and Local Government Leader. “They not only can help governments develop and evolve their urban transformation strategies but also help them balance short-term pressures with longer-term needs.”

Drawing on the insights from researchers, policy makers, and city leaders, the 12 trends include:

• Green planning of public spaces. While traditionally characterized by high density of population and buildings, cities are now rethinking their structure and functions to achieve sustainable urban living.
• 15-minute city. Urban planners are aiming to design neighborhoods so that amenities are within a 15-minute walk or bicycle ride, with a range of housing, more green spaces, and designated walking and bicycle routes.
• Inclusive services and planning. Governments around the world are proactively implementing inclusion-focused solutions, with the goal of leaving no one behind.
• Smart health communities. Cities are developing health care ecosystems that not only focus on diagnosing and treating sickness but also on supporting well-being through early intervention and prevention.
• Mobility: intelligent, sustainable, and as-a-service. With more walking and cycling spaces, cities are working towards offering digital, clean, intelligent, autonomous, and intermodal mobility.
• Digital innovation ecosystem. Tending to attract talent, enable creativity, and encourage disruptive thinking, cities are promoting new sources of employment and economic growth related to technological innovation.
• Circular economy and producing locally. Cities are adopting circular models based on a healthy circulation of resources and the principles of sharing, re-use and restoration.
• Mass participation. Local governments are acting as platforms for co-creation enabled by technology and promoting mass participation—that is citizens working in a collaborative ecosystem of academia, businesses, NGOs, and the public sector.
• Cybersecurity and privacy awareness. To cope with rising cyber risks and privacy issues, cities are creating robust cybersecurity strategies and policies in response to any cyber failure, data loss, financial impact, or major service disruption.
• Smart and sustainable buildings and infrastructure. By leveraging digital technologies, cities can use data to optimize energy consumption and the use of resources in buildings and utilities, including waste, water, and energy.
• City operations through AI. Using artificial intelligence, technology-powered infrastructure can support cities in automating operations, creating efficiencies, solving problems, and delivering better services.
• Surveillance and predictive policing through AI. Cities are aiming to carefully leverage technology to ensure public safety—such as automatic contact tracing—while paying special mind to citizen concerns and governance.

While recovery from the pandemic as well as the pressure of growing populations are key factors for cities, other relevant challenges must also be addressed by urban planners in order to create sustainable cities. The report identifies some of these challenges, including such economic, social, and environmental issues as affordable housing, segregation and inequality, and climate change.

About the report’s contributors
The 12 trends were developed based on original research and interviews conducted with experts from a range of public, private, and academic organizations, including:
• Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr, Mayor of Freetown
• Kirby Brady, Chief Innovation Officer of San Diego
• Uwe Brandes, Faculty Director, Georgetown University Global Cities Initiative
• Sandy Carter, Vice-President of Amazon Web Services Worldwide Public Sector Partners and Programs
• Markus Elkatsha, Urbanist at MIT Media Lab
• Kent Larson, Director of City Science group at MIT Media Lab
• Jukka Mäkelä, Mayor of Espoo
• Carole Mancel-Blanchard, Member of Cabinet of European Commissioner for Cohesion & Reforms
• Jeff Merritt, Head of IoT and Urban Transformation at the World Economic Forum
• Maimunah Mohd Sharif, Executive Director of UN-Habitat
• Rui Moreira, Mayor of Porto
• Miguel Pinto-Luz, Deputy Mayor of Cascais
• Mohamed Ridouani, Mayor of Leuven
• Paulo Rosado, CEO of OutSystems
• Sameh Wahba, Global Director, Urban, Disaster Risk Management, Resilience and Land Global Practice at the World Bank
• Kok Yam Tan, Deputy Secretary of Singapore’s Smart Nation and Digital Government Office

National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC) announces Amazon Business as their newest corporate member.

We are excited to be working with NVBDC. Making online procurement easier for customers of all sizes and industries is among our top priorities and one we share with NVBDC.”

— Lois Rouder, Senior Business Development Manager, Amazon Business

DETROIT, MI, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC) welcomes Amazon Business as its newest Corporate Member. Amazon Business is committed to supporting the NVBDC Certified Service-Disabled and Veteran-Owned Businesses (SD/VOBs); This includes an ongoing effort to enhance outreach to secure SD/VOBs in their procurement opportunities.

Amazon Business provides business customers with the pricing, selection, and convenience of Amazon, with features and benefits designed for businesses of all sizes. Amazon Business supports hundreds of thousands of third-party sellers to sell to businesses of all sizes. A report by Censeo Consulting found that 93% of small businesses surveyed faced significant barriers to reaching public sector customers through traditional sales channels, and 85% agree that the overall public sector procurement process is difficult to participate in.

As a company, Amazon spends billions of dollars every year to help small- and medium-sized businesses around the globe succeed. In addition to infrastructure, personnel, tools, and services, the company’s investments go toward their certified seller program, highlighting those with one or more nationally recognized certifications such as small, minority, woman, veteran, and LGBT-owned businesses.

Amazon Business gives a small business seller the opportunity to showcase these certifications for organizations that want to buy from a certified supplier. Over 5 million businesses across a variety of industries purchase products they need on Amazon Business. In addition to selling on Amazon, becoming an Amazon Business Seller allows you to cater to the specific requirements of business customers by providing features optimized for business-to-business transactions, including quantity pricing and business pricing, and more.

When you start selling on Amazon, you become part of a retail destination that’s home to sellers of all kinds, from Fortune 500 organizations to artisan vendors who make handcrafted goods. Amazon Business customers in the US include over 80 Fortune 100 companies, 92 of the 100 biggest US hospital systems, and 90% of the 100 most populous local governments. They all sell on Amazon Business for a reason: to reach the millions of customers who visit Amazon to shop.

Businesses that register for a Professional Selling Account through Amazon Business will receive the benefits of the Business Seller program upon registration completion. With two selling plans (called Individual and Professional), Amazon offers the flexibility to sell one item or sell thousands. Before you begin registration, decide which plan is a better fit for your business. The Individual plan costs $0.99 per sale, while sellers using the Professional plan pay $39.99 per month, no matter how many items they sell. If you sell more than 40 items a month, the Professional option makes a lot of sense. Whichever plan you select, do not worry about making the wrong choice—you can change plans at any time.

“Amazon Business sales are an important part of our growth, and to bring attention to our customer’s satisfaction overall. The ability to identify as a successful, Veteran and Black-owned business is not only beneficial to us, but to other companies like us that might feel discouraged in a difficult business environment—our hope is we can inspire other minority-owned businesses like Aldevra to remain adaptable, think creatively, and enable each other to be successful,” said Rodney Marshall, Founder & CEO, Aldevra

Certifications attract Amazon Business customers, many of whom are tasked with meeting quality sourcing objectives and corporate social responsibility goals. Once registered as an Amazon Business Seller, you can choose from a list of accepted certifications, add details about your certification, upload a digital copy of the certificate, or provide a business identifier number (such as DUNS).

"We are excited to be working with NVBDC," said Lois Rouder, Senior Business Development Manager, Bridging Communities, at Amazon Business. "Making online procurement easier for customers of all sizes and industries is among our top priorities and one we share with NVBDC."

Certifications will be exposed to Amazon Business customers throughout the shopping experience. Additionally, a list of each seller’s certification will be displayed prominently on seller profile pages.

To start selling on Amazon, create a business profile, set up your products, and start selling. Manufacturers and distributors who are new to Amazon or are existing professional sellers now have a targeted way to reach business customers on Amazon. With a specialized suite of tools to enable B2B e-commerce, small businesses to large enterprises will find new ways to engage incremental business customers through a trusted Amazon experience. You can reach millions of business customers already shopping on Amazon.

“Access to NVBDC Corporate Members is the key to opportunities for our Certified Service-Disabled and Veteran-Owned Businesses. We are proud to announce the addition of Amazon Business to expand on our initiatives to support veteran businesses. NVBDC is always available to answer your questions on how to get certified,” said Brigadier General (ret) Dick Miller, President, NVBDC.

MA PATIENTS, ADVOCATES, HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS TO LAWMAKERS: CO-PAY ACCUMULATOR PROGRAMS PUT PATIENT HEALTH AT RISK

(S.644/H.1053) WILL PROHIBIT THE USE OF CO-PAY ACCUMULATOR PROGRAMS, WHICH ALLOW INSURERS AND PBMS TO ‘DOUBLE DIP’ ON THE COST OF NEEDED PRESCRIPTION MEDS

BOSTON, MA, USA, September 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Advocates representing thousands of patients from across Massachusetts today testified virtually in front of the Joint Committee on Financial Services to call for passage of legislation to ban the use of co-pay accumulator programs in the Commonwealth.

The legislation (S.644/H.1053) is critical to any Massachusetts resident using co-pay assistance programs to defray the out-of-pocket costs passed on to them by insurance companies.

Drug manufacturers have long offered discount programs to help patients. Until recently, insurers applied the total cost of the prescription—what the discount covered and what the patient paid out of pocket to the patient’s insurance deductible.

However, with co-pay accumulator programs, only the amount that the patient pays directly out of pocket will count towards their deductible—not what the manufacturer program puts toward the cost of the medication. This results in the patient paying more out of pocket to reach their deductible and the insurer being paid twice.

“Despite having insurance, co-pay assistance programs often make the difference in the ability for patients to afford medications critical to their health,” said Richard Pezzillo, Executive Director of the New England Hemophilia Association and Chair of Patients for Prescription Access.” “This legislation will ensure patients aren’t being forced to spend more than necessary for their live saving medications and we look forward to working with lawmakers to advance these bills this session.”

In addition to those testifying, nearly 30 patient and provider organizations signed a group letter in support of S.644/H.1053.

12 other states (AR, AZ, CT, GA, IL, KY, LA, NC, OK, TN, VA, WV) and Puerto Rico have passed similar legislation. Members of Patients for Prescription Access look forward to working with lawmakers this session to advance this important patient focused legislation.

Land Conservation Group Offers to Take Bison, Subverting Need for Park Service to Permit Imminent Hunt in Grand Canyon

Governor Jared Polis asks National Park Service to relocate the animals to Colorado prairie preserve, and not to allow hunters to shoot tame bison.

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — (Washington, D.C.) – Animal Wellness Action and partner organizations have received news that an accredited land trust organization based in Colorado is willing to take 12 bison soon set to be shot within Grand Canyon National Park, providing a solution that would preserve the park’s interest in reducing its bison population but also maintain the park’s prohibition on hunting that’s been in place since the unit was designated by Congress more than a century ago. Colorado Governor Jared Polis endorsed the plan today in an official statement.

“We would happily provide permanent refuge for those 12 bison,” said Nicole Rosmarino, Ph.D., executive director of the Southern Plains Land Trust. “Our preserve in southeast Colorado, at 25,000 acres, has a sanctuary herd of bison, and these additional animals would be welcome. We stand ready to allow a win-win solution for the park and for the bison.”

“Our American Bison are a majestic and iconic species of wildlife. It is rare for the lethal removal of Bison to be allowed on National Park Service land which is owned by all Americans. This decision should be reversed and we would welcome these 12 bison to live and roam free at the Southern Plains Land Trust in Bent County. I urge Interior and the National Park Service to consider this practical Colorado solution,” said Governor Jared Polis.

The land trust, established in 1998, has six prairie preserves covering 32,000 acres in southeastern Colorado, in three counties. Since the NPS is already translocating 88 bison within Grand Canyon National Park to tribes, translocation is eminently feasible. The proximity of the Colorado reserves to Grand Canyon would minimize transport stress for the animals.

This year, Animal Wellness Action and its partners have called for NPS to halt plans to allow trophy hunters to kill human-habituated bison in the north rim of Grand Canyon National Park, a plan that subverts a 100-year precedent of forbidding sport hunting in our national parks and monuments.

That same plea was made on Friday by Congressman Joe Neguse, D-Colorado, the chairman of the National Parks, Forests and Public Lands Subcommittee, who sent a letter to Secretary Haaland with a bipartisan group of lawmakers.

In cooperation with the Arizona Game and Fish Department, the NPS conducted a lottery to select hunters to win the opportunity to shoot the bison and to leave with the carcasses and trophies of the animals. There were 45,000 applicants, demonstrating that would-be participants believe this is a rare opportunity to shoot a bison in a national park and collect a trophy.

“The National Park Service may euphemistically call this action ‘a cull,’ but the agency has participated in a lottery to select participants, will allow the winners to enter the park with firearms, authorize them to gun down bison, and leave with the carcass and trophy,” said Wayne Pacelle, president of Animal Wellness Action. “This has every imaginable feature of a bison hunt, and that’s a pattern of behavior you just don’t see in America’s national parks.”

Neguse and four other lawmakers called out the kill as unnecessary. “We would encourage you to not move forward with the lethal removal scheduled for next week and revisit alternative methods that can be used to manage the population within the park boundaries,” wrote Congressman Neguse, along with Madeleine Dean, D-Penn., Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Penn., Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, and Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill.

The United States, except just one park given congressional authorization for hunting of a single species, has long forbidden trophy hunting of animals in national parks. The same is true for national monuments. Not even in Yellowstone National Park, where the treatment of bison by multiple state and federal agencies has come under intense scrutiny, is the NPS allowing hunters to kill bison within the boundaries of the park.

Last week, in a column in the New York Times, Arizonan and former White House senior speechwriter Matthew Scully urged Haaland to call off the hunt.

Bison species have, since the Pleistocene, ranged from Yukon and Alaska to the Valley of Mexico. The bison occupies an outsized place within the annals of the National Park Service as well, and it is prominently featured on the logo of the agency.

In recent weeks, more than 45,000 supporters of AWA attempted to contact Secretary Haaland to urge her to cancel the hunt.

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

The Center for a Humane Economy (“the Center”) is a non-profit organization that focuses on influencing the conduct of corporations to forge a humane economic order. The first organization of its kind in the animal protection movement, the Center encourages businesses to honor their social responsibilities in a culture where consumers, investors, and other key stakeholders abhor cruelty and the degradation of the environment and embrace innovation as a means of eliminating both.

The Animal Wellness Foundation (Foundation) is a Los Angeles-based private charitable organization with a mission of helping animals by making veterinary care available to everyone with a pet, regardless of economic ability. We organize rescue efforts and medical services for dogs and cats in need and help homeless pets find a loving caregiver. We are advocates for getting veterinarians to the front lines of the animal welfare movement; promoting responsible pet ownership; and vaccinating animals against infectious diseases such as distemper. We also support policies that prevent animal cruelty and that alleviate suffering. We believe helping animals helps us all.

Call on the international community to recognize the massacre of 1988 as genocide and a crime against humanity, refer this case to the UN Security Council, and hold Khamenei and Raisi accountable.”

— NCRI

PARIS, FRANCE, September 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Tuesday, September 21, 2021, simultaneous with Ebrahim Raisi’s speech at the 76th UN General Assembly, a conference was held in Stockholm, Sweden, attended by a large number of witnesses and survivors, as well as the relatives of the martyrs of the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners. They called for the international community to bring to justice the perpetrators of this genocide and crime against humanity.

Members of the Swedish Parliament including, Ingmar kihlström, Magnus Oscarsson, and Kejll Arne Ottosson, also addressed the conference, stressing the need for the perpetrators of the 1988 massacre, especially Ebrahim Raisi, to be held accountable.

In a video message to the conference Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), stated: Raisi must face justice and prosecution for the executions and torture of prisoners. But he stands at the podium to address the UN General Assembly. How can the international community accept such a disgrace and not cry out in protest?

Reminding the efforts of the clerical regime to hide the huge crime against humanity and genocide during the summer of 1988, she said: But Khomeini miscalculated the great work of the (MEK/PMOI) and the Iranian Resistance.

From the very first weeks of the massacre, Massoud [Rajavi, the Leader of the Iranian Resistance] revealed in numerous communiqués, interviews, and telegrams to the UN Secretary-General that "Khomeini issued a fatwa in his own handwriting ordering the execution of the (MEK/PMOI) political prisoners."

On December 23, 1988, he sent a list of 1,100 massacre victims to the relevant UN authorities. Ever since the (MEK/PMOI) and the Iranian Resistance have launched a large-scale global campaign to urge the international community to condemn the massacre.

The Call-for-Justice Movement enjoys the backing of 1,000 former (MEK/PMOI) political prisoners in Ashraf-3 and thousands of former political prisoners supporting the MEK in Iran and worldwide. This unique assembly of noble human beings who refuse to give up and preserve reflects the restless conscience of Iranian society. They will not give up seeking justice until the criminal regime is toppled.

Mrs. Rajavi underscored: Neither the squad of cannibals, nor the escalation of repression and incitement to war, nor the mad dash to develop a nuclear weapon will save this regime and prevent its overthrow. She added: We call on the world to condemn the clerical regime’s brutal and systematic violation of human rights in Iran.

The continuation and expansion of political and economic ties with this regime must be predicated on the improvement of the human rights situation and an end to executions and torture in Iran.

We urge the international community, particularly Sweden and the European Union, to recognize the massacre of political prisoners as genocide and a crime against humanity.

We call on them to take the necessary steps to refer this case to the UN Security Council and end the impunity for and bring to justice those responsible for this major crime, especially Ali Khamenei and Ebrahim Raisi.

Nineteen political prisoners who survived the 1988 massacre and dozens of families of the martyrs participated in the conference. Several of the witnesses shared their memories of the massacre and covered different aspects of it.

They stressed: The 1988 massacre is a clear example of genocide and crimes against humanity committed after Khomeini's fatwa, during which 30,000 political prisoners, more than 90% of them were members and supporters of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK/PMOI), were executed.

We have witnessed the execution of thousands of our friends and fellow combatants in Evin, Gohardasht, and other prisons. Most of us in Evin and Gohardasht have seen Ibrahim Raisi as a member of the "Death Committee," which hanged thousands of prisoners.

Many of our friends have witnessed the execution of many (MEK/PMOI) members and supporters by Ebrahim Raisi in Karaj and Hamedan prisons. Today is a disgraceful day for contemporary humanity because a criminal is addressing the General Assembly of the United Nations.

They also underscored: We witnessed how the Revolutionary Guards took wheelbarrows filled with ropes to warehouses turned into slaughterhouses, and then wheelbarrows filled with the sandals of our executed friends came out of those halls.

In the dark of night, we witnessed how trucks carried the bodies of our executed friends to be buried in unmarked mass graves. We saw that Raisi and his accomplices did not even have mercy on paralyzed prisoners or those suffering from severe epileptic seizures and sent them to gallows.

These days, parts of the crimes committed at Gohardasht prison have been revealed in the Stockholm court. However, no one still knows about many parts of this prison, and we do not know the names of many martyrs.

A few tens of kilometers away, the number of martyrs of the 1988 massacre in Evin was several times that of Gohardasht. Evin, after June 20, 1981, housed 10,000 to 15,000 prisoners. In other provinces, the catastrophe had even more painful dimensions. In many cities, not a single person survived, the witnesses added.

The witnesses also underlined: We witnessed how the men and women of the (MEK/PMOI) did not surrender to executioners like Raisi and insisted on their political positions and proudly welcomed death.

It was the test of a generation of Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK/PMOI), who had learned the lesson of truth and sacrifice from Massoud Rajavi (Leader of the Iranian Resistance). And they proudly passed this test. Thirty-three years since that epic resistance, we are more determined to continue their path and support the (MEK/PMOI).

We have come to tell the international community that silence and inaction are enough and that it is time to end impunity for such criminals. Inaction encourages this regime to continue these crimes. Massacres and atrocities are in the regime's DNA and continue to this day.

We call for an independent UN investigation, accountability, and trial of the perpetrators of this massacre, specifically Ebrahim Raisi, and Ali Khamenei. We will continue this campaign until justice prevails.

At the same time, as witnesses to the massacre in Sweden gathered, Iranians in New York, Paris, London, Berlin, Rome, Vancouver, The Hague, Brussels, Cologne, Geneva, Bucharest, and Gutenberg also protested against Raisi’s online address to the UN General Assembly.

Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), September 21, 2021

Full speech of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi:

Message to the meeting of witnesses of Raisi’s crimes in the 1988 massacre, UN urged to investigate
September 21, 2021

Dear friends of the Iranian Resistance,

Former political prisoners seeking justice for your comrades martyred in the massacre of 1988,

I salute you all.

I salute your gathering, which is part of the awakened conscience of contemporary humanity against the monster of reactionary mindset, tyranny, and massacre. You have risen to reject Ebrahim Raisi, a bloodthirsty mass murderer. His hands are stained with the blood of political prisoners massacred in 1988 and at least 1,500 young people and teenagers slaughtered during the November 2019 uprising.

He must face justice and prosecution for the executions and torture of prisoners. But he stands at the podium to address the UN General Assembly. How can the international community accept such a disgrace and not cry out in protest?

Thirty-three years ago, on Khomeini’s horrific decrees, 30,000 political prisoners were hanged in the dreadful darkness of those nights. Ninety percent of them were members and supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). As stated in those decrees, Khomeini sought to eradicate the (MEK/PMOI) quickly. He wanted to carry out the horrendous massacre in total silence. The plan for the killings in Tehran and dozens of other cities was designed such that no one would know about it.

They did not want anyone to know why the family visits had been stopped. They tried to conceal the catastrophe in the making inside the prisons. They sought to hide the reason for digging deep craters in the middle of the night in deserted areas on the outskirts of cities.

However, Khomeini miscalculated the great work of the (MEK/PMOI) and the Iranian Resistance. From the very first weeks of the massacre, Massoud [Rajavi, the Leader of the Iranian Resistance] revealed in numerous communiqués, interviews, and telegrams to the UN Secretary-General that “Khomeini issued a fatwa in his own handwriting ordering the execution of the (MEK/PMOI) political prisoners.” On December 23, 1988, he sent a list of 1,100 massacre victims to the relevant UN authorities.

Ever since the (MEK/PMOI) and the Iranian Resistance have launched a large-scale global campaign to urge the international community to condemn the massacre. By disclosing numerous lists of the victims’ names and informing the world, they laid the foundation for the Call-for-Justice Movement.

The Call-for-Justice Movement has, on the one hand, relentlessly discovered and revealed the details of this horrendous crime over the past three decades. On the other, it has led to a broad domestic and international campaign to prosecute and punish the regime’s leaders for genocide and crimes against humanity.

I extend my sincere greetings to the (MEK/PMOI) members and everyone who has kept alight the flames of the Call-for-Justice Movement in Iran and abroad. I also greet the families of the martyrs and political prisoners and the human rights defenders in various countries who have supported this campaign.

I thank you, the Iranian Resistance’s supporters, and all our compatriots, who have organized numerous demonstrations in recent weeks simultaneous with the trial of one of the perpetrators of the 1988 massacre in Stockholm.

The efforts and valuable disclosures of former political prisoners, a large group of whom are present in your gathering, are truly commendable. The Call-for-Justice Movement enjoys the backing of 1,000 former (MEK/PMOI) political prisoners in Ashraf-3 and thousands of former political prisoners supporting the PMOI in Iran and around the world.

This unique assembly of noble human beings who refuse to give up and persevere reflects the restless conscience of Iranian society. They will not give up seeking justice until the criminal regime is toppled.

The testimonies and statements of these witnesses at the trial of one of the perpetrators in Stockholm confirm this truth.

I salute the 30,000 heroes who walked to the gallows through the annals of Iran’s history towards freedom. They made their most conscious choice with utmost awareness and greatest determination.

They stood their ground, sang anthems, and chanted the name of Massoud Rajavi (the leader of the Iranian Resistance). By decisively rejecting Khomeini and his regime, they chose the ideal of freedom.

Now, their liberated friends remain faithful to the same oath as they continue their journey. As Massoud Rajavi said, “If Iran remains steadfast, the world will stand with us.”

The experience of the past 33 years is a testament. The future history will bear witness that the movement seeking justice for the victims of the 1988 massacre has overcome the silence and complacency of the regime’s accomplices.

Dear friends,

The clerical regime has founded the pillars of its anachronistic regime on an ocean of blood of the victims of the 1988 massacre.

This atrocity continued to embolden the regime in carrying out its fundamental policies in subsequent years, which include the ruthless massacre of the Iranian people’s children in November 2019, the catastrophic slaughter of the passengers of a Ukrainian Airliner, and the regime’s deliberate inaction in tackling the Coronavirus outbreak, sending thousands upon thousands of innocent people to their deaths. Nevertheless, they will never be able to obstruct the path of the uprisings.

By installing a squad of cannibals, among them Ebrahim Raisi, his cabinet ministers, and the heads and members of the judiciary and parliament, Khamenei displayed the obvious signs of the regime’s despondency in the face of popular uprisings. But neither the squad of cannibals, nor the escalation of repression and incitement to war, nor the mad dash to develop a nuclear weapon will save this regime and prevent its overthrow.

We call on the world to condemn the clerical regime’s brutal and systematic violation of human rights in Iran. The continuation and expansion of political and economic ties with this regime must be predicated on the improvement of the human rights situation and an end to executions and torture in Iran.

We urge the international community, particularly Sweden and the European Union, to recognize the massacre of political prisoners as genocide and a crime against humanity. We call on them to take the necessary steps to refer this case to the UN Security Council and end the impunity for and bring to justice those responsible for this major crime, especially Ali Khamenei and Ebrahim Raisi.

The international community must recognize the right of the Iranian people, the Iranian Resistance, and the Iranian protesters to overthrow the mullahs’ regime and establish a democratically elected republic based on the separation of religion and state.

We honor the martyrs who laid down their lives for freedom and salute you for seeking justice for those heroes and heroines.

Yes, this movement and this struggle will carry on until freedom, victory, and the overthrow of the ruling religious fascism in Iran.

IRI Celebrates 30th Anniversary At Annual Conference

Insured Retirement Institute logo

“Working Together, We Can Deliver on the Promises our Industry Makes”

Working together, we can deliver on the promises our industry makes to help America's workers and retirees achieve a secure and dignified retirement.”

— Wayne Chopus, President and CEO

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, September 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) opened its annual conference with a celebration of three decades of championing retirement security for America's workers and retirees.

The four-day virtual event runs this week and next with informative and thought-provoking speakers and sessions focusing on the insured retirement industry's issues and challenges.

In opening remarks, IRI President and CEO Wayne Chopus announced that IRI is celebrating thirty years since its inception as the National Association of Variable Annuities in 1991. The name change to the Insured Retirement Institute occurred in 2009.

"The new identity was a better reflection of the broader nature of our mission and our members," Chopus said. "Our members give IRI its unique value proposition — no other industry association represents the entire supply chain of the insured retirement industry. Each link in the chain is essential to our overall success, and we are a stronger, more credible organization by representing a holistic view of our industry."

Reflecting on the association's history, Chopus described five observations about the industry. "We find ourselves at a confluence of circumstances and events that, while challenging in many ways, also offer significant opportunities,” he said.

"An insured retirement matters," Chopus stated. "Nothing else in the marketplace today offers the benefits, safety, and security that annuities provide." He added that market conditions, demographics, positive changes in public policy, and technology advancements are making annuities more desirable and available.

Next, he noted that today's investing environment is among the most challenging of our lifetimes, and the complexity in generating income from a portfolio requires expert human guidance. "Financial advisors are more valuable than ever," Chopus said.

Chopus also said that advocacy strategy must be constructive, flexible, and focused. "Advocacy will continue to be a critical and major IRI asset," he said. “We are the industry's common voice to advance policies that provide solutions to the retirement issues facing our nation today.”

Technology was the focus of Chopus' fourth observation, noting that the adoption of digital solutions is accelerating. "IRI is leading the industry in a digital solution transformation that is overdue and critical to future success," he said.

Chopus added that the pandemic served as a change accelerant as companies had to adapt to a virtual world. "This first-of-its-kind initiative is vital to our industry as technological changes march forward and consumers need access to the products and services our industry delivers."

The fifth observation centered on the critical importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). "This a mission of action, not merely words," Chopus said.

He added that IRI has a critical role in driving necessary change given its unique position representing the entire supply chain of insured retirement solutions. IRI established a board-level working group and an advisory council of member company DEI professionals to guide IRI efforts to promote adoption of best practices.

"Thirty years ago, IRI was formed to help lead our industry to meet the challenges of the day," Chopus said. "Challenges remain. They always will. But IRI is your dedicated partner and advocate prepared to address those challenges. Working together, we can deliver on the promises our industry makes to help America's workers and retirees achieve a secure and dignified retirement."

The Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) is the leading association for the entire supply chain of insured retirement strategies, including life insurers, asset managers, and distributors such as broker-dealers, banks, and marketing organizations. IRI members account for 90 percent of annuity assets in the U.S., include the top ten distributors of annuities ranked by assets under management, and are represented by financial professionals serving millions of Americans.

Kilpatrick to debut a new look for his upcoming films

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, September 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Patrick Kilpatrick, following his rewarding Gubernatorial campaign ride, is in preparation for two upcoming films.

Always looking to greater embody a character, Kilpatrick is going under the knife to subtly change his appearance to portray a supremely vain character. Through the finest cosmetic surgery available, Kilpatrick will literally bring a new face to film.

‘I believe the Universe provides you with the exact equipment to manifest your ultimate purpose, provided you give it 1001%. I think of this as akin to Robert De Niro gaining 60 lbs for his seminal performance in Martin Scorsese’s ‘Raging Bull’. I’ve never accepted limitations to creativity in any film, screenwriting, teaching, financing, or distribution endeavor. We intend to get it done for our clients, our audience, and the electorate of California and the nation – just as we always have with 200+ films and hit tv shows with Steven Spielberg, Antoine Fuqua, James Cameron, Tom Cruise, Naomi Watts, and a host of other significant artists.’

This metamorphosis is for two upcoming films.

Firstly, Kilpatrick will be bringing his skills to 'GInger', a faith-based drama feature film shooting next week.

The second is the latest installment in the successful ‘Borrowed Time’ franchise directed by Alan Delabie, According to Delabie, Patrick is ‘Manifesting complete vanity and narcissism for this role’. He is joined in the cast by Costas Mandylor, Louis Mandylor, Matthias Hues, and Billy Blanks. The film is being shot on location in Belgium.

Once he is wrapped, Patrick is off with his beautiful wife on their postponed honeymoon. A journey through the heart of Europe.

Patrick will then embark on international talent agency meetings in England and a film media consultancy journey in Nigeria, with a return to America for a family wedding in Virginia.

Back in the states, Kilpatrick will be observing the 2022 Gubernatorial campaign and LAs Mayor’s race.

Kilpatrick is irrepressibly energetic.

The funding will be provided to accelerate the development and mining in the production for Uranium as well as fund analysis and feasibility for mining other critical battery metals for the clean energy economy including lithium, zirconium, gold, and copper.
Demand for nuclear fuel from domestic resources as well as global markets continues to outpace supply as countries look towards energy self-sufficiency and climate friendly solutions. UrAmerica is focused on development of uranium production via the low cost and low impact method of In-Situ Recovery (ISR) in Chubut Province. Six (6) barrels of Uranium produce the energy equivalence of two-hundred and twenty thousand (220,000) barrels of oil making it the optimal source of energy for rapidly addressing climate issues for nations globally.

Omar Adra, Executive Director, Chief Executive Officer of UrAmerica commented on the agreement, “UrAmerica is very excited to look towards this funding from Burkhan International Development Corporation, to build a world class mining platform supporting BIDC’s strategy of critical metals source thru clean energy production and infrastructure globally. UrAmerica is dedicated to make a significant global contribution to achieving the Net-Zero carbon goal that the planet needs”.

BIDC Chairman, Shahal Khan added, “BIDC is pleased to have signed this funding commitment with UrAmerica to enable a carbon free future as well as to develop what we feel are one of the largest potential strategic metals deposits in South America. This transaction is strategic to the United States for the future security of supply chain in that sector. We hope to list UrAmerica’s in the near future in the US stock market to allow it to accelerate its timing to production of uranium and exploration of key minerals such as Lithium.”

The funding will also lead to a re-structuring of the company to become a U.S. company based in Washington, DC.

Global Policy Initiatives Support Nuclear Energy, Biden’s proposed FY2022 budget includes production tax credits to support at-risk power plants ($9.7B through 2031). This is funding to procure advanced nuclear power ($3.5B through 2026). The EU indicated that nuclear energy does not cause significant harm and inclusion may help support continued and new investment in nuclear capacity in Europe, stemming early reactor closures. The U.S., Europe, China and Japan are recognizing nuclear’s vital role as a carbon-free energy source planning to produce 20% of electricity from non-fossil sources by 2030 expect nuclear power use to rise as much as 10% over the next decade, up from 5% in 2019.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, USA, September 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — EVENT: Black Lawyers for Justice news conference formally launches a Civil-Human Rights investigation into allegations of systemic bias and racism by the court system of the city of Indianapolis.

DATE: Wednesday September 22, 2021

TIME: 11:00am Eastern 10:00am Central

ZOOM ADDRESS: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87947012916?pwd=cmcxUlN5RkF4U0ZpdWJEMVJSMDJJQT09

On Wednesday September 22, 2021 a special ZOOM news conference will be held by Black Lawyers for Justice, which will formally launch a Civil-Human Rights investigation into allegations of bias and systemic racism in the Indianapolis Justice System. This investigation has been expected since the announcement was made by lead counsel Malik Z. Shabazz, Esq. on July 16, 2021 at the courthouse in Indianapolis, in connection with the murder case of Dorian Murrell by Tyler Newby last year. Outrage and objections were issued on that day about Newby being given a bond and released from home monitoring by prosecutors.

Charge Added to Dorian Murrell's Alleged Killer as Family Speaks Out – UNICORN RIOT By Niko Georgiades, Unicorn Riot July 23, 2021

Last year in the midst of outrage in Indianapolis over the issue of police brutality, on June 5, 2020 the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Indiana said the state's court system "must acknowledge and confront" its own failings regarding racial inequities and bias. Chief Justice Loretta Rush, in her “Statement on Race and Equity,” said she wants it known that Indiana "can and must do better" regarding equal treatment of all who come before the court. Cite: https://wpta21.com/2020/06/05/state-supreme-court-chief-justice-courts-can-be-complicit-in-perpetuating-bias/

On behalf of Black Lawyers for Justice, Attorney Malik Z. Shabazz says “The Indiana Chief Judge opened the door to a very important subject regarding race and justice in the state of Indiana. Over the years and presently, Indianapolis may have engaged in a pattern or practice of conduct that violates the 5th Amendment, 6th Amendment and 14th Amendment of the Constitution. Indianapolis’ harmful court and police practices are due, at least in part, to intentional discrimination, as demonstrated by direct evidence of racial bias and stereotyping about African Americans by certain Indianapolis police and municipal court officials.”

The Black Lawyers for Justice investigation will utilize the Indiana Freedom of Information Act, as well as direct written questionnaires to prosecutors and court officials. Interviews with local residents, persons affected by the justice system as well as interviews with public officials will be conducted. Community listening sessions and other methods of interaction, data collection and feedback will be used in the course of this investigation.

Such important data is expected to come forth such as, the race of prosecutors for all cases; charges filed according to race; dismissals of charges according to race; defendants granted bail sorted by race; bail amounts sorted by race; conviction rates for all defendants for misdemeanor and felony crimes sorted by race, and sentencing data sorted by race.

Joining Black Lawyers for Justice will be Laron Anderson (Black Indy Live); Pastor Denell Howard (Hovey Street Church of Christ); Gregory Meriweather (Community Civil Rights Advocate) and other activists and civil rights advocates will attend this news conference.

The initial set of document requests to the City of Indianapolis will be released before this news conference. #Justice4DorianMurrell
