A look at Brexit as UK prime minister cancels the big vote

No Comments

first_imgLONDON — British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday postponed a parliamentary vote on the Brexit deal between her government and the European Union.Brexit explained:HOW DID WE GET HERE?Voters across the United Kingdom backed leaving the EU by a vote of 51.9 per cent to 48.1 per cent in a referendum that was held on June 23, 2016. Voter turnout was 72.2 per cent, the highest for any U.K. election since 1992.On March 29, 2017, Prime Minister Theresa May formally notified the EU of the U.K.’s intention to leave, starting the two-year negotiating period spelled out in the bloc’s rules. This means that U.K. is due to leave the EU on March 29, 2019.May and EU leaders have negotiated a withdrawal agreement that spells out the terms of the U.K.’s departure. The deal also outlines the future relationship between the two sides, although the details are subject to further negotiations.WHAT IS HAPPENING THIS WEEK?The House of Commons, the elected branch of Parliament, was scheduled to vote on the deal Tuesday, but the prime minister delayed the vote in the face of widespread opposition.May insists the deal “delivers for the British people,” but after three days of debate, it was clear that she didn’t have the votes needed for passage.Much of the anger is focused on provisions designed to prevent the re-implementation of physical border controls between Northern Ireland, which is part of the U.K., and the Republic of Ireland, a member of the EU. Under the so-called backstop, the U.K. would remain part of the EU customs union if the two sides couldn’t agree on another way to avoid a “hard border.”Lawmakers from all sides of the political spectrum criticized the backstop because the U.K. couldn’t leave the arrangement without the EU’s consent, giving European negotiators leverage to demand future concessions. The backstop would also treat Northern Ireland differently from the rest of the U.K., drawing the ire of politicians who zealously guard Northern Ireland’s continued union with Britain.WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?A delay will force the weakened government to try to renegotiate its departure or face two equally unpalatable choices: a “no-deal” Brexit that could bring havoc to the economy or call a second referendum, which could undermine faith in the country’s democratic institutions and lead to mass protests. Whichever option she chooses, analysts say May’s government is weakened — perhaps fatally.WHAT ARE MAY’S OPTIONS?The prime minister may ask EU leaders to accept changes to the deal when they meet Dec. 13-14 in hopes of winning support in Parliament. EU leaders insist the 585-page withdrawal agreement can’t be renegotiated, but the declaration on future relations is shorter and subject to future negotiations so amendments may be possible.But there is no agreement about what a better deal would look like.Many “Brexiteers” seek a clean break with the bloc and want to change the Irish backstop. Pro-EU lawmakers want a softer divorce — the so-called Norway option — that would keep Britain inside the EU’s single market for goods and services. The EU might be open to this idea, but it would mean accepting the continued free movement of EU citizens into the U.K., a red line for many Brexit supporters.IS MAY’S JOB IN JEOPARDY?Though she insists she has no plans to resign, May’s hold on power has been weakened by her inability to bridge differences within her Cabinet and finalize a deal on the biggest issue facing the U.K. since World War II.Pro-Brexit rebels in her Conservative Party can trigger a vote of no-confidence in May’s leadership if they win the backing of 48 members of Parliament. If May lost the vote, the party would hold an election to choose a new party leader— a process that would take several weeks.May would remain prime minister in the meantime, but without much authority as the clock ticks down to March 29, the day Britain officially is due to leave the EU.IS THERE AN ELECTION ON THE CARDS?The opposition Labour Party has threatened to call for a vote of no-confidence in the government, which could trigger a general election. But winning such a vote would require the support of some Conservatives, who may be unwilling to trigger an election that could well see them ousted from power.If May’s government lost a confidence vote, it would have two weeks to overturn the result with a new vote by lawmakers. If that failed, there would be an election, a process that takes five to six weeks.Whatever new government emerges would have little time to solve the Brexit conundrum before March 29.COULD THE U.K. CHANGE ITS MIND?Yes. The European Court of Justice ruled Monday that the U.K. can change its mind and remain in the EU without the agreement of the other 27 member nations.This provides encouragement to supporters of a so-called People’s Vote, who are seeking a second referendum now that the costs and benefits of Brexit are better understood.___See the AP’s Brexit coverage at: https://www.apnews.com/BrexitDanica Kirka And Jill Lawless, The Associated Presslast_img read more

UK Automotive on red alert as no deal threat sees manufacturing and

No Comments

UK automotive companies are today urging all politicians to do whatever it takes to avoid a ‘no deal’ Brexit as latest figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show British car production fell to its lowest level for five years in 2018. 1,519,440 new cars left UK factories, a decline of -9.1%, and the second consecutive annual fall as the sector faces multiple challenges.The news comes as SMMT also reveals that fresh inward investment in the sector plummeted in the year – down almost half (-46.5%) on 2017 to just £588.6 million, amid fears over the UK’s future trading prospects with the EU and other key global markets after 29 March.2In 2018, production for the UK fell -16.3% as regulatory changes and ongoing uncertainty over future diesel policy and taxation were exacerbated by declining consumer and business confidence. Exports were also down, with output for overseas markets dropping -7.3% as slowdowns in important European and Asian markets took effect. UK car exports to China slumped -24.5%, while EU demand fell by -9.6%, less steep than the decline at home, with registrations of British-built cars in the UK down -20.9% in the year. Overall, EU27 countries still accounted for the vast majority of UK exports (52.6%) – amounting to 650,628 cars.Elsewhere, consumers responded to increased availability of several new premium models currently built only in the UK. Exports to the US grew +5.3%, cementing the country’s position as the UK’s second biggest customer after EU and underlining the risk to output if tariffs are imposed. Meanwhile, exports to Japan rose +26.0% and South Korea also showed growth (+23.5%).Both countries, along with other key markets, including Canada and Turkey, are (or will imminently become) subject to preferential EU trade agreements, from which the UK benefits – together representing 15.7% of UK car exports.3 Time has almost run out to guarantee continuity of any of these arrangements before Brexit, and ‘no deal’ could therefore put more than two thirds of UK Automotive’s global trade under threat.Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said,With fewer than 60 days before we leave the EU and the risk of crashing out without a deal looking increasingly real, UK Automotive is on red alert. Brexit uncertainty has already done enormous damage to output, investment and jobs.Yet this is nothing compared with the permanent devastation caused by severing our frictionless trade links overnight, not just with the EU but with the many other global markets with which we currently trade freely.Given the global headwinds, the challenges to the sector are immense. Brexit is the clear and present danger and, with thousands of jobs on the line, we urge all parties to do whatever it takes to save us from ‘no deal’.The decline in UK car manufacturing in 2017 and 2018 follows seven years of unprecedented growth for the sector as it emerged from recession faster than any other major EU market, with output rising more than 70% in that time.4Today, UK Automotive is globally respected. It is Britain’s biggest exporter in goods, and one of the country’s most important economic pillars, employing 186,000 people directly in vehicle and component factories and delivering an annual £20.2 billion direct to the Treasury.Much of this success is due to our global competitiveness, drawn from economic and political stability, investment, a highly skilled workforce and beneficial trading conditions with our biggest markets. As a highly-integrated sector that has maximised the benefits of the European single market and customs union, a ‘no-deal’ Brexit is the most significant threat to the competitiveness of the UK automotive sector in a generation.Check out the news coverage this story received:Deutsche Welle Brexit slashes car industry investment by nearly 50 percentBBC News Brexit: Car investment halves as industry hits ‘red alert’Financial Times UK car plant investment slumps as production falls to 5-year lowThe Times Car production in the UK falls by a tenthThe Telegraph Plunge in car production puts industry on red alertITV News Car industry on red alert as production slumps, SMMT warnsSky News UK car industry sounds ‘red alert’ over no-deal Brexit damageThe Guardian British car production slumps to five-year lowReuters UK car output falls at fastest rate since recessionBloomberg U.K. Auto Investment Down Almost 50% as Brexit Hits SpendingMail Online UK car industry on ‘red alert’ as production falls at fastest rate since the recessionCity AM UK car industry warns on no-deal Brexit as manufacturing and investment nosediveThe Independent UK car industry pleads for Brexit deal as investment collapses by half in 2018This is Money UK car industry on ‘red alert’ as production falls at fastest rate since the recessionAutocar UK car manufacturing falls 9% as investment plummetsNotes to editors1.

ARod Suspension Over Eligible to Return to Yankees

No Comments

Alex Rodriguez, banned for a year over performance-enhancing drugs, completed his suspension with the end of the World Series, won by San Francisco in seven games over Kansas City, and is eligible to return to the Major Leagues.Rodriguez missed the entire 2014 season after being suspended following MLB’s investigation into the Biogenesis case. Rodriguez has not spoken with the media, and his public appearances have been limited to random football and baseball games.Rodriguez, 39, has no formal plans yet to speak with the media, his spokesman said Thursday morning.The New York Yankees and Rodriguez both appear as if they are trying to be conciliatory after the rancor of his suspension. Rodriguez has three years and $61 million remaining on his contract. As part of the deal negotiated after the 2007 season, Rodriguez can earn an additional $6 million by hitting just six more home runs and tying Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list with 660.Manager Joe Girardi and general manager Brian Cashman have both said they are unsure what to expect from Rodriguez on the field. Rodriguez may have a chance to retain his starting third base spot, but that will rest largely on what the Yankees do this offseason and if Rodriguez is fit enough.Rodriguez has played in only 44 games over the past two years and has had surgery on both of his hips. Girardi has talked with Rodriguez about trying to play first base as a backup. Rodriguez would also DH if he is on the team.Despite the bad blood from the lengthy and heated appeals process, the Yankees have given no indications they will release Rodriguez. If they did so, they would owe him his entire salary. Yankees officials have said that if Rodriguez can still play, they will take him back for 2015. read more

High technology products from methane AustralianIndian joint venture

No Comments

first_imgEden Energy has executed a non-binding terms sheet with Indian Oil Corp (IOCL) through which, subject to certain conditions being satisfied, the two companies will enter into a farm-in agreement to scale up a new Pyrolysis technology jointly developed by Eden and the University of Queensland, to produce hydrogen and ultra-strong solid carbon fibres and nanotubes from methane gas.The new pyrolysis technology was developed jointly by Eden and the University of Queensland with support from the Australian Research Council. Through this technology, methane (natural gas) is broken down into its atomic constituents of hydrogen gas and solid carbon, without the production of carbon dioxide, to produce carbon fibres and nanotubes that exhibit tensile strengths up to several hundred times greater than that of steel. If successfully piloted on a commercial scale, the process could have important implications for the wide commercialisation of these ultra-strong forms of carbon that can be used in composite materials for the construction, electronics, aerospace and vehicle building industries.IOCL, India’s flagship national oil company and downstream petroleum major, is the country’s largest commercial enterprise, with a sales turnover in 2008-09 of more than A$60 billion – the highest ever for an Indian company. It is also the highest ranked Indian company in the prestigious Fortune ‘Global 500’ listing, having moved up 11 places to 105th position in 2009. IOCL’s involvement in the farm-in agreement will be managed by its R&D division which operates an A$250 million worldclass R&D facility at Faridabad near Delhi.In 2005, the Indian Government designated IOCL as the core agency for developing the ‘Indian Hydrogen Roadmap’ and promoting the use of hydrogen and HCNG or Hythane®, a blend of hydrogen-enriched natural gas, for transport and electricity generation in India. In this role, IOCL in 2008 engaged Eden’s wholly owned US subsidiary, Hythane Co, to build for IOCL the first public Hythane® station in India, at Dwarka near Delhi.The New Pyrolysis TechnologyUnlike most hydrogen production technologies, this new Pyrolysis technology has the very significant advantage of not producing carbon dioxide as an unwanted by-product. Instead, this technology produces only hydrogen and solid carbon powder (Carbon Black), together with, under certain conditions, carbon fibres and multi-walled and single-walled carbon nanotubes.Carbon fibres and carbon nanotubes have enormous tensile strength, as well as being exceptional conductors of electricity, and are currently used in super-strong, ultra-light carbon composite materials that are deployed extensively in the production of the latest fuel efficient airliners (Airbus A380 and Boeing 787) and in Formula 1 racing cars. However, current production methods are expensive, which has thus far limited the widespread commercial use of these materials.The new pyrolysis process, if successfully scaled up from the existing laboratory scale to commercial production, could open up large commercial markets for these high value carbon composite materials in the structural materials markets, where they could potentially displace both steel and aluminium in many applications. Additionally, the potential Greenhouse Gas savings that would be likely to result from the widespread use of carbon composite materials in substitution for steel and aluminium could be very significant.Eden has reached a preliminary in-principle agreement with the University of Queensland (UQ) for Eden to purchase from UQ, in consideration of the issue to UQ of 3,750,000 fully paid ordinary shares in Eden, its 50% interest in the patents and intellectual property developed by this project. This acquisition will enable Eden to satisfy the provisions of the Terms Sheet with IOCL, which require Eden to transfer to IOCL a 50% interest in the new technology upon IOCL firstly funding the up-scaling of the technology by approximately 18 times, to a bench scale size of 120 litres of methane per hour, and then a further thousand-fold up-scaling to a pilot plant capable of processing 120 NM3/hour of methane, which would be enough methane to run between 15-20 natural gas fuelled buses on a continuous basis The total cost of these two phases has been estimated at approximately A$2.6-3.6 million.The Terms Sheet with IOCL contains a number of conditions precedent, including IOCL being satisfied with both a demonstration of the technology at UQ, and with Eden’s and UQ’s right to ownership of the intellectual property, and their right to commercialise it. It is estimated that this up-scaling process would take between 18-24 months to complete.Subject to completion of the preliminary matters detailed above, Eden will secure a highly capable and strategically placed major partner with which to undertake the development and commercialisation of this groundbreaking and extremely promising carbon technology, effectively leaving the hydrogen as a very cheap but valuable by-product.last_img read more

Microsoft announces limited edition Surface accessories

No Comments

first_imgAs Microsoft gears up for the launch of the Surface Pro and the release of the 64GB Surface RT, Redmond has thrown in a few extras to excite both existing and future Surface owners. A series of limited edition Surface accessories has been announced that will be available for the launch of the Surface Pro. Each accessory will work with all versions of the Surface tablets.One of the biggest problems you find with any new hardware release is the availability of accessories. When a new tablet comes out, it usually arrives with the same five cases and maybe a cover or two, and it doesn’t take long to realize that everyone’s got the same thing. The Microsoft Surface shook things up with the release of the RT product in that the touch keyboards were released in a variety of different colors. With the release of the Surface Pro, since the same accessories would worth with either tablet, Microsoft felt the need to make sure everyone knew the Pro was special.Microsoft’s limited edition touch covers feature three unique patters on the existing flat color touch covers. These patters each offer a unique look and feel to the touch cover without affecting how they function. Microsoft’s limited edition touch covers will work with any Surface tablet, and are going to be available for a short time on select online retailers and at Microsoft stores for $129.The Microsoft Wedge mouse is getting a limited edition as well. This mini Bluetooth mouse was originally speculated as being a Surface accessory, but the release before the tablet indicated that it was just another step in Microsoft’s touch enabled input line. The limited edition Surface Wedge features a gloss and color design to match the Surface, though is identical to the original wedge in every other way. The limited edition Wedge will be sold for $69.95 as an accessory to the Surface.Microsoft is hopeful that the release of the Surface Pro will be met with more fanfare and excitement than the Surface RT launch. While an impressive piece of hardware, many felt that the biggest problem with the Surface RT was that it wasn’t the Surface Pro. With these new accessories to accompany the launch, Microsoft hopes to re-ignite the excitement that was held with the original announcement of the Surface tablet PCs.last_img read more

Barcelona president Pogba move in January unlikely

first_imgBarcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu doesn’t expect Manchester United to sell Paul Pogba in January, but didn’t rule out making a move for himThe 2018 World Cup winner is understood to be considering his United future after another public spat with manager Jose Mourinho.The pair’s relationship has hit an all-time low after Mourinho stripped Pogba of the vice-captaincy and they were seen arguing with each other in a training session last week.Both Juventus and Barcelona have been linked with a move for the unsettled Pogba, but Bartomeu suggested that rumours of an impending exit for the French midfielder are unlikely.Mario Mandzukic, JuventusJuventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.“I read these rumours – not just Pogba but a lot of players. Most of the teams don’t want to sell their players. They want to grow,” Bartomeu told The Times.“When you hear from agents that a certain player is on the market – and I am not saying that about this player, but generally – I will sometimes call the CEO and say ‘Is it true you want to sell this player?’.“Usually, they say ‘No way, not for sale’ and that’s the end of it.”last_img read more

The importance of timing

No Comments

first_img‘Timing is everything’ is a well-worn cliché. Nevertheless, sometimes the importance of timing should not be underestimated. For example, where an employee is struggling to cope with a physical or mental health condition, an employer promptly approaching its group risk benefits provider can ensure that appropriate support is available as soon as possible.While early intervention can facilitate timely access to rehabilitation services, reducing absence length and associated costs, the group risk industry has also strengthened its offerings at an even earlier stage of the process by providing value-added services that take a preventative approach to workforce wellness.The additional services that are available alongside core group risk products, whether these are aimed at helping employees improve their health and wellbeing or supporting family and colleagues through bereavement, can form an invaluable part of an employer’s benefits provision.However, if both employers and employees are to make the most of group risk benefits, it is imperative that they know what services these benefits entail, how they can be accessed, the forms of support available, and the range of situations and issues they can help to address.Engagement with these benefits can be driven by an effective communications strategy that reinforces awareness and understanding, for which employers can also call on group risk providers and advisers for support. But if the benefits are to achieve the aims an organisation is hoping for, and foster a workplace culture where staff are motivated, productive and engaged, then time must be taken to consider these goals and the requirements of the workforce. And here timing steps into the spotlight again.In a roundtable discussion held in September 2015, sponsored by MetLife, participating industry experts highlighted the advantages of employers, advisers and group risk providers meeting outside of the contract renewal cycle. This allows time for greater insight into elements such as employee feedback, sickness absence trends, and workforce demographics, thereby helping employers to select the group risk products, value-added services and communications support that best suits their overall benefits strategy, organisational objectives and staff needs.Louise Fordham, deputy editor, Employee Benefitslast_img read more

first_img The US Food and Drug Administration has approved the civilian use of the XSTAT Rapid Haemostasis System, which can stop the bleeding from an open gunshot wound in 15 seconds.The device had already been in use by the military after being approved for use in the battlefield in 2014. William Maisel, MD, MPH, acting director of the Office of Device Evaluation in the FDAs Center for Devices and Radiological Health, said: It is exciting to see this technology transition to help civilian first responders control some severe, life-threatening bleeding while on the trauma scene.The XSTAT 30 is for use with patients who have life-threatening haemorrhagic shock, when emergency medical care cannot be found in minutes. The treatment uses a syringe-style applicator to puts tablet-sized cellulose sponges into the wound to absorb blood and stop the bleeding.Each XSTAT 30 syringe has 92 sponges that can each absorb a pint of blood. The dressing is effective for up to four hours, while the patient seeks further medical attention. Up to three applicators can be used on an individual patient. The sponges have radiopaque markers so an X-ray can pick up any sponges to help in the process of extraction. Closelast_img read more

Scientists suggest protocol for messaging to aliens

No Comments

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — In 1974, humans broadcast the first message targeted at extraterrestrial life using the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico. The message, which was aimed at the globular star cluster M13 located 25,000 light years away, consisted of binary digits that encoded information about our DNA, as well as graphics of a human, our Solar System, and the Arecibo telescope. Since then, humans have sent three other messages to nearby stars and planets (20-69 light-years away). These messages have become more complex and anthropocentric, with music, photographs, and drawings submitted by the public. Now a team of scientists, Dimitra Atri from the University of Kansas, Julia DeMarines from the International Space University in France, and Jacob Haqq-Misra from Pennsylvania State University, has proposed that future attempts of messaging to extraterrestrial intelligence (METI) should follow a standard protocol to maximize communication effectiveness. They think that some of the content of past METI broadcasts, which contain sights and sounds, would likely go unnoticed by extraterrestrials who do not have visual or auditory perception (like some organisms on Earth). Instead, the researchers argue that short, simple messages with minimal anthropocentrism, and which rely on simple physical or mathematical language, have the best chance of success.In their study, which will be published in a future issue of Space Policy, the researchers say that a METI protocol should provide constraints and guidelines for factors such as signal encoding, message length, information content, anthropocentrism, transmission method, and transmission periodicity. Currently, there are three antennas that have the capability of transmitting messages to planets anywhere in our galaxy; these telescopes are located in Arecibo, Puerto Rico; Goldstone, California, US; and Evpatoria, Crimea, Ukraine.The researchers acknowledge the argument of some critics that broadcasting our presence to extraterrestrials is a security risk, since an advanced civilization would likely possess the capability to destroy us. But they note that Earth has been emitting electromagnetic signals into space for nearly 100 years due to the unintended leakage from TVs, telecommunications, and aviation. As the researchers explain, any civilization capable of radio transmission that lies within a radius of 100 light-years could detect our TV and radio, and would already know we’re here.The scientists also emphasize that searching for and attempting to communicate with extraterrestrials is as much about understanding ourselves as it is about finding aliens. Once a protocol is developed, the researchers hope to test it in different human cultures throughout the world in order to minimize cultural bias and make the message as universal as possible. The researchers also plan to create an interactive website at which users can create, send, and decrypt messages to each other that follow the protocol. The researchers explain that, even if most of these messages are never sent into space, they will still allow people from different cultures to better appreciate our human diversity.“In the next few weeks, we will be collaborating with mathematicians and radio astronomers to come up with both the content and mode of communication of the message,” Atri said. “As suggested in the paper, it will not be anthropocentric like previous attempts. Once our collaboration comes up with a protocol, we will create an interactive website to test it globally. Anyone with internet access will be able to suggest his/her own message within the protocol guidelines based on scientific principles. We are also open to suggestions from both the scientific community and the general public for improvements in the protocol. It will be a community effort.” Citation: Scientists suggest protocol for messaging to aliens (2011, February 4) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-02-scientists-protocol-messaging-aliens.html Hello, Hello, Earth?

first_img August 9, 2011 – A new type of radiation therapy for early-stage breast cancer that cuts down on treatment time while sparing healthy tissue is available at Staten Island University Hospital (SIUH).When a breast cancer patient undergoes a lumpectomy to remove a cancerous tumor, it’s often followed by radiation therapy. Traditional radiation therapy can take an average of five weeks. But using the SAVI breast brachytherapy applicator allows patients to complete their radiation treatments in only five days.SIUH is the first hospital in New York State to be recognized as a Center of Excellence for the SAVI treatment.The SAVI applicator is made up of a slim bundle of soft and flexible catheters. A breast surgeon makes a small incision in a patient’s breast and places the device in the lumpectomy cavity.Once inside, the catheters are expanded to conform to the site. Each catheter individually radiates the tissue surrounding the lumpectomy cavity from the inside out.”The reason to use a multi-catheter device is that we can control the dose of radiation for each of the catheters, so the catheters that are closest to the skin can get less radiation,” said Cynara Coomer, M.D., chief of breast surgery at SIUH and director of The Comprehensive Breast Center.”The catheters that are closest to the breast tissue can get more radiation. So, the tissue that really needs to be radiated can be radiated with the highest dose and that means less exposure to the skin, the chest wall, heart and lungs,” said Coomer.The SAVI applicator stays in place throughout the week-long treatments. A portion of the end of each catheter remains accessible outside the patient’s breast and is secured with dressing and a sports bra.Treatments are delivered twice a day, six hours apart. For each session, a tiny radioactive seed is placed inside each catheter by a computer-controlled machine. The radiation source is removed after each session. On average, the treatments are complete in less than 15 minutes.For more information: www.siuh.edu Whole Versus Partial Radiotherapy for Breast CancerVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 11:16Loaded: 1.44%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -11:16 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Trayvon race and democracy in the US

No Comments

first_imgNo related posts. Facebook Comments OPINIONTrayvon Martin’s senseless death and his killer George Zimmerman’s recent acquittal have roused the U.S. nation from its perpetual slumber regarding race matters, inspiring nonviolent protests that have run the gamut from old-fashioned street demonstrations to more technologically innovative dissent through social media.It has been an impressive show of unity, the marches of last year and, more recently, the impromptu displays of grief and outrage on the streets of many U.S. cities. But although rallies are important, we can best honor Trayvon’s memory by organizing a sustained and national conversation about race and democracy in the 21st century – one that leads to substantive public-policy transformation.It’s a conversation that needs to take place in civic spaces, libraries, churches, schools and community centers, and one that needs the involvement of citizens from all segments of society. Elected officials and political leaders need to actively participate in this dialogue rather than hide behind the safety of written statements or silence.Why is this so important? Because debates about the racial symbols lurking behind this tragedy only scratch the surface of a larger conversation about race and democracy in U.S. society. Despite racism’s crucial role in forging the republic, we remain reluctant to convene a critical and intellectually informed dialogue about race matters. The paucity of a historically based dialogue on national race relations allowed for a stunning development throughout the Zimmerman trial, one wherein the deceased victim was turned into a criminal.Indeed, by scarcely mentioning race but utilizing photos in court that showed Trayvon as a budding “predator,” the prosecution tapped long-standing negative stereotypes about black men that date back to antebellum America, what the historian Khalil Gibran Muhammad calls the “condemnation of blackness” and law professor Michelle Alexander has referred to as the “New Jim Crow.” Trayvon’s transformation from a racially profiled victim into a “predator,” capable of instilling traumatic fear into his assailant, is not surprising considering this nation’s long history of cultural racism that dehumanizes black men and women as criminals. The failure to discuss this history proved to be a second death for Trayvon.I know this because as a black teenager coming of age in New York City during the 1980s, I was a potential Trayvon Martin or Michael Griffith, the young black man chased by a gang of whites in 1986 for the crime of trespassing in the predominantly white Howard Beach neighborhood in Queens, N.Y. New York’s volatile racial climate in the 1980s inspired Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” and fueled the creative and political energies of the militant rap group Public Enemy.But the racial controversies of my adolescence were situated against a larger historical narrative wherein race has shaped the contours of U.S. society. The heroic period of the civil rights movement, between 1954’s Brown Supreme Court desegregation decision and 1965’s landmark Voting Rights Act, helped to fundamentally transform U.S. democracy, marking the demise of legal segregation and laying the groundwork for black social, political and economic access in the post-civil rights era.While Martin Luther King Jr. remains the national hero of this narrative, memorialized in a holiday and through a monument in the nation’s capital, Emmett Till’s ghost continues to haunt our collective racial past. A 14-year-old black teenager visiting family in Money, Mississippi, in 1955, Emmett was lynched by a group of whites for defying racial conventions and allegedly speaking out of turn to a white woman. His disfigured body appeared on the cover of Jet magazine soon after and became a searing example of white supremacy’s impact in the postwar United States.Trayvon’s death, just like Emmett’s, can be traced back to skin color, although prosecutors purposely avoided race throughout the Zimmerman trial. The irony of our national history is that the further we move from discussing race matters, the more institutional racism festers, like a cancerous tumor, on the American body politic and our national conscience. More than one year ago, President Obama, in one eloquent stroke, humanized this tragedy through the simple acknowledgment that if he had a son, “he would look like Trayvon.”In 1963 while languishing in a jail cell in Birmingham, Alabama, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote of the civil rights movement transporting the U.S. back to “those great wells of democracy” that were dug deep by the nation’s founding fathers. But the architects of U.S. democracy peacefully co-existed alongside chattel slavery and institutional racism, a circumstance that many continue to ignore and deny and over which King’s soaring rhetoric at times glossed.Recognition that racism distorted and disfigured the nation’s democratic hopes and dreams proved fleeting, even after the Civil War and Reconstruction, only gaining substantive traction during the postwar civil rights movement. This movement proved both triumphant and tragic enough to jump-start our last national conversation about race, one that starred presidents and civil rights leaders, ex-convicts and priests, welfare mothers and literary critics.An honest and historically informed conversation about race and democracy in America requires an unflinching look at our nation’s recent history and a more complex understanding and appreciation for the achievements and shortcomings of the civil rights movement’s heroic period. That period spurred an unfinished revolution that helped integrate public schools, end Jim Crow in public accommodations and secure the vote for African-Americans.But these historic victories were countermanded by racial violence, economic insecurity and the emergence of what Ian Haney López calls “colorblind” racism, which touts an “end of racism” mythology while stubbornly ignoring widening racial inequality. The post-racial euphoria that greeted Barack Obama’s election helped promote an unearned celebration and narrative of racial progress that is upended by the ordinary reality of black life in the U.S.President Obama’s post-verdict statement asking U.S. citizens to engage in “calm reflection” fails to pass the muster of presidential leadership at this crucial moment in history. John F. Kennedy’s June 11, 1963, nationally televised “race speech” eloquently addressed the fact that individual reflection about the moral crisis of race in the U.S. required political action. Kennedy forcefully repudiated those who counseled for patience and delay, noting that a century had passed since the Emancipation Proclamation and yet the heirs to those who experienced slavery remained in bondage.Lyndon Johnson praised the Aug. 6, 1965, passage of the Voting Rights Act as having removed the last shackles of that ancient bondage that Kennedy had addressed two years earlier. Do we now live in a nation where only white presidents can offer bold and effective leadership on race matters?A half-century later, the Supreme Court has inexorably weakened the Voting Rights Act with its recent Shelby decision, and more black men populate federal, state and local prisons than during the March on Washington. President Obama’s failure to robustly address the fact that negative racial disparities have proliferated in the aftermath of his watershed election is a kind of moral cowardice that is unfitting any president, regardless of race, and made all the more tragic since he is the nation’s first African-American president.Civil rights protesters have rightfully condemned the system that allowed a young black boy to be killed because of his race, but have been too reluctant to demand justice and moral and political leadership from the single most important figure in contemporary American politics – and the symbolic and elected head of our democracy. A fitting tribute to Trayvon Martin’s legacy requires the courage and tenacity, following Martin Luther King Jr.’s heroic example, to speak truth to power, even at the cost of criticizing the sitting president, whom many blacks still regard as the culmination of King’s dream.Trayvon’s death offers definitive proof that we have not crossed over into a post-racial land less bound by race. This painful acknowledgment may be the first step on the long road toward racial justice and democracy in the 21st century.Peniel E.
