Urban areas have limited airwave availability due to the high number of commercial stations. The new rule will give urban organizations the ability to apply for LPFM stations via second-adjacent waivers.Those expected to benefit in the relaxed airwave rules are community organizations within Pasadena.The National Hispanic Media Coalition also commended the move. For years, the NHMC has been fighting for diversity in media ownership and against negative stereotypes in the media. “We joined this effort so that Latino-led and Latino-serving organizations could have a greater presence on the radio dial. We need a diversity of voices to help transform the anti-Latino and anti-immigrant discourse which dominates the radio,” said Jessica Gonzalez, NHMC’s Vice President of Policy and Legal Affairs.NHMC has been working closely with a coalition of media advocacy groups, led by Prometheus Radio Project, to call for the relaxation of the airwave rule.NHMC said it would continue working with the Prometheus Radio Project to help promote awareness of this opportunity to organizations nationwide. For more information about LPFM and the application process, call NHMC at (626) 792-6462.About NHMCThe National Hispanic Media Coalition is a non-partisan, non-profit, media advocacy and civil rights organization established in 1986 in Los Angeles, California.

The Parkway Drive-In by Pat Sides

first_imgDuring the 1950s and 1960s, drive-in restaurants reached their peak of popularity in the United States. Workers enjoyed unprecedented prosperity in the post-World War II years, and with their rising incomes, people enjoyed eating out more frequently. Drive-ins conveniently combined America’s love of food and automobiles. Evansville’s first drive-in, Austin’s, was in operation by 1945, and others soon followed, including the Dubl “R,” Biff-Burger Al’s, Leo’s Big Boy, Calico-Gal, and the Parkway Drive-In on New Harmony Road, pictured here in 1968. Large fast-food chains, with drive-through lanes, eventually led to the decline of smaller drive-ins.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img

Predator who claimed to be transgender assaults women in shelter

first_imgSexual predator jailed after claiming to be ‘transgender’ to assault women in shelterLifeSiteNews 4 March 2014A biological man claiming to be ‘transgender’ so as to gain access to and prey on women at two Toronto shelters was jailed “indefinitely” last week after being declared by a judge a “dangerous offender.”Pro-family leaders are pointing out that this is exactly the type of incident they warned of as the Ontario government passed its “gender identity” bill, dubbed the “bathroom bill,” in 2012.Christopher Hambrook, 37, leaned on the ever expanding legal “rights” offered to people who “identify” with the sex opposite their biology. Under the name “Jessica,” he was able to get into the women’s shelters, where he sexually assaulted several women in 2012, the Toronto Sun reports.Keep up with family issues in NZ. Receive our weekly emails direct to your Inbox.Court heard how one woman awoke to find Hambrook assaulting her on her bed. “Her tights had been pulled down past her bottom and her bathing suit had been pulled to the side,” court documents reveal. “She yelled at the accused, demanding to know what he was doing. He simply covered his face with his hands, said ‘Oops!’ and started giggling.”Court also heard evidence of Hambrook terrorizing a deaf woman living in the shelter. “The accused grabbed the complainant’s hand and forcibly placed it on his crotch area while his penis was erect,” court heard.The same deaf women reported that Hambrook would peer at her through a gap between the door and its frame while she showered.Justice John McMahon imposed the “indefinite” prison sentence due to Hambrook’s long history of committing sex crimes.https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/sexual-predator-jailed-after-claiming-to-be-transgender-in-order-to-assaultlast_img read more
