Black chapter in history of democracy says Mayawati on Karnataka developments

first_imgLucknow: BSP president Mayawati on Wednesday said the manner in which the JD(S)-Congress government in Karnataka has been pulled down will go down in the history of democracy as a “black chapter”. Mayawati, who on Tuesday night expelled its lone party MLA in Karnataka hours after Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy lost the trust vote in the state assembly, said in a tweet, “The manner in which BJP kept all constitutional norms aside and used money and power to pull down Opposition-led government in Karnataka will be registered in the history of democracy as a black chapter.” Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ “Any amount of condemnation of such an act is not enough,” Mayawati said. On Tuesday, the Kumaraswamy government collapsed after losing the confidence motion, garnering 99 votes against 105 to the BJP. The coalition needed 103 votes to win the trust vote as 20 MLAs Congress-JDS (17), BSP (1), Independents (2) skipped proceedings, reducing the effective strength of the House to 205. Kumaraswamy later submitted his resignation to the Karnataka governor, capping an intense power struggle triggered by a raft of resignations by rebel MLAs. He has been asked by the governor to continues as caretaker CM until his successor takes over.

She said in a tweet that the absence of Bahujan Samaj Party legislator N Mahesh during the trust vote and he violating the directives of the party high command to support the Congress-JD(S) coalition amounts to indiscipline. “The party has taken in very seriously, and hence Mahesh has been expelled from the party with immediate effect,” she added.last_img read more

Saskatchewan takes federal carbon tax fight to Supreme Court of Canada

first_imgSASKATOON — The Saskatchewan government has filed notice that it is taking its challenge of the federal carbon tax to the Supreme Court of Canada.Justice Minister Don Morgan says the province will ask the high court to rule on whether the tax is constitutional and whether Ottawa has the jurisdiction to impose it.Saskatchewan’s Court of Appeal ruled in a split decision earlier this month that the tax is constitutional.It also said that establishing minimum national standards for a price on greenhouse gas emissions falls under federal jurisdiction.Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe, who has said the tax hurts his province economically, promised there would be an appeal.Morgan said the province has two months to file a factum to the Supreme Court.“Our government will continue to stand up for Saskatchewan people against what we believe is an unconstitutional tax on their families, communities, and businesses,” Morgan said Friday in Saskatoon.He added that if the Liberals lose the federal election in October, there may be no federal tax left to fight. The Conservatives have promised to scrap the tax.“The Supreme Court could say it’s moot, it’s not worth hearing because the government has changed the law,” said Morgan. “Or they could say, ‘No, this is a matter of import. We want to create a precedent.’”A government spokesperson said in an email that the province does not have to ask for a leave to appeal in this case.The federal tax has been imposed on provinces that have not implemented their own carbon levies: Ontario, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.Premier Jason Kenney’s government officially killed Alberta’s carbon tax on Thursday. Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said Ottawa’s tax would be imposed on the province as soon as possible.Ontario and Manitoba are also fighting the federal tax in court and Alberta has said it will join the legal battle.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Global unemployment passes 200 million in 2017 UN labour agency reports

In the new addition of its flagship report, World Employment and Social Outlook 2017: Sustainable Enterprises and Jobs, the International Labour Organization (ILO) warned that small and medium sized enterprises has “stagnated,” the impact of which is worst in developing economies, where more than one in two workers are employed in small and medium-sized firms. According to the report, private sector enterprises accounted for the bulk of global employment in 2016; they employed 2.8 billion individuals, representing 87 per cent of total employment. The sector, which also covers medium-sized firms, accounts for up to 70 per cent of all jobs in some Arab States, and well over 50 per cent in parts of sub-Saharan Africa. But ILO research revealed these companies are struggling to grow. The latest data from more than 130 countries shows that small and medium business had faster job growth than larger firms before the global financial slump in 2008. From 2009 however, job creation in the small and medium sector was simply “absent”, according to the ILO report, which calls for government intervention to reverse the trend. “To reverse the trend of employment stagnation in [small and medium enterprises], we need policies to better promote SMEs and a better business environment for all firms, including access to finance for the younger ones,” said Deborah Greenfield, ILO Deputy Director-General for Policy. The ILO research shows that full-time female permanent employees in the formal sector are more likely to be found in small and medium enterprises than in large firms. On average, and across all regions, around 30 per cent of full-time permanent employees in these businesses are women, compared with 27 per cent in large enterprises. As such, greater numbers of women in enterprises may therefore have a positive impact on growth and development, because micro-enterprises and small businesses often offer women an entry point into the formal labour market. Another aspect of the ILO’s World Employment and Social Outlook report is on how people’s working conditions can play a role in sustainable development. It says that providing training for staff can lead to 14 per cent higher wages and almost 20 per cent higher productivity. Conversely, relying on short-term contractors tends to be associated with lower wages and lower productivity.

Buckeyes strike early and often to trample Thundering Herd

From the opening kickoff Thursday night, the Ohio State Buckeyes proved they weren’t looking ahead to Miami (Fla.), easily disposing of Marshall, 45-7. A year after narrowly escaping Navy in a season-opening victory one week before a clash with USC, No. 2 OSU made easy work of the Thundering Herd. The Buckeyes and Hurricanes play Sept. 11 at Ohio Stadium. The Hurricanes weren’t looking past their opponent, either. They pounded Florida A&M 45-0 Thursday. “We have a tremendous challenge next weekend,” OSU coach Jim Tressel said. “If we’re willing to learn from this weekend and get rested and get healthy, then it could be a lot of fun.” In their first weeknight game since an Aug. 28, 1997, win against Wyoming, the Buckeyes notched their 11th consecutive season-opening victory by way of an early offensive explosion. OSU made it look effortless against an overmatched Marshall team that is installing a new offensive system under first-year coach Doc Holliday. “Marshall’s doing a transition away from the style of football they used to play,” Tressel said. “I’m not sure they were ready for our defense.” The Buckeyes scored touchdowns on three first-quarter possessions, none of which lasted more than 1 minute, 9 seconds, and took a 35-7 lead into halftime. Safety Nate Oliver recovered a fumble on the opening kickoff and OSU marched down the field for a quick score. Junior quarterback and Heisman hopeful Terrelle Pryor connected with receiver DeVier Posey on a 6-yard touchdown just 1:18 into the contest. “We stress not to put the ball on the ground … it’s unacceptable,” Holliday said. “Any time you do that and you’re playing Ohio State, you don’t have a chance.” Pryor threw for 247 yards and three touchdowns – two to Posey – before sitting out most of the fourth quarter. “Terrelle Pryor is a handful,” Holliday said. “He does some things and you just can’t get him on the ground.” After forcing Marshall into a quick punt, the Buckeyes wasted little time scoring again. Running back Brandon Saine burst through a gaping hole for a gain of 40 yards, followed immediately by a 4-yard rush to the end zone to give OSU a 14-0 lead with 10:27 remaining in the first quarter. “When he hits that gear, he can go,” Tressel said. “He picked up a little crease and (Saine) was out of there.” The Buckeyes tacked on another touchdown with 3:49 left in the first half when Saine raced past the Marshall defense for a 45-yard score and a 28-7 lead. Saine finished with 103 yards on just nine carries. Linebacker Brian Rolle’s 30-yard interception return for a touchdown capped the first half scoring. “It was such an incredible feeling to be able to score,” Rolle said. “I just turned around and I was like, ‘wow, all I see is red.’” Not everything went smoothly for OSU, however. Special teams woes that plagued the Buckeyes in their Rose Bowl victory over Oregon popped up again in the first half. The Thundering Herd blocked a field goal attempt by freshman Drew Basil and returned it 61 yards for Marshall’s only score. “We just didn’t protect the gap on the field goal,” Tressel said. “We just flat out didn’t protect. That better get fixed in one week. As far as the kickoff coverage, we sure hope it does (improve).” Marshall’s Andre Booker also returned a kickoff 63 yards in the first quarter, but the Herd couldn’t take advantage of the field position. In last season’s opener, Navy nearly erased a 29-14 Buckeye lead in the fourth quarter. Rolle picked off a two-point conversion attempt that would have tied the game with two minutes left. In the fourth quarter Thursday, the game wasn’t in doubt. Second- and third-stringers saw time on the field, including backup quarterbacks Joe Bauserman and Kenny Guiton. “It was good that we got a number of guys in,” Tressel said. Marshall last defeated a ranked opponent on Sept. 20, 2003, when it knocked off No. 6 Kansas State 27-20. Its streak of eight consecutive losses against superior competition was never in jeopardy. “It’s going to be a more difficult world next week,” Tressel said. “We have a chance to evaluate ourselves and be ready for what we know is going to be a great challenge.” Next week’s meeting will be the first between the Buckeyes and Hurricanes since the national championship game on Jan. 3, 2003, that Ohio State won in double overtime, 31-24. “Now’s the time we have to get in that Miami mode,” Rolle said. “We know we’re going to play a fast, feisty, swagger team. You get the feeling like that team thinks they’re back on the map like they were in the early 2000s.” read more

Ohio State football simulating preparing for crowd noise in first road trip

Ohio State football’s Wednesday practice consisted of noise – lots and lots of noise. After all, the Buckeyes hit the road this Saturday in their first Big Ten and away contest of the season against No. 20 Michigan State. In anticipation of what will likely be raucous Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, Mich., OSU coaches flooded the indoor practice field of the Woody Hayes Athletic Center with simulated crowd noise. Sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller said it was so loud he had trouble hearing during practice. “They put a whole bunch of stadium music on so it was loud,” Miller said. Miller wasn’t the only Buckeye affected. Redshirt senior wide receiver Jake Stoneburner said music and crowd noise was blaring inside all practice long. His ears, he said, were still ringing from the noise afterwards. “I don’t think I’ve ever heard a stadium that loud,” Stoneburner said. But for many OSU players like Miller and Stoneburner, it will be their first trip to Spartan Stadium as the Buckeyes’ last venture there ended in 45-7 victory in 2008. Buckeyes’ Big Ten opener Stoneburner said first-year coach Urban Meyer showed the team a highlight reel of things they did well after their game against UAB. “It was just our four scoring drives, just wanted to show how good our offense can be when we’re rolling downhill and everything’s clicking and he just wanted to make sure we started the Big Ten week on a good note, you know, not watching all the negatives, but watching all the positives,” he said. “You saw what he was saying, when our offense was clicking, it was almost scary how quickly we were able to go down and score and it made good sense why he wanted to do that.” Injury Update Meyer said a number of previously banged-up players would be seeing action on Saturday against the Spartans. Meyer said junior running back Carlos Hyde, who sprained his MCL in a Sept. 9 game against Central Florida, will see the field for the Buckeyes against MSU. Similarly, redshirt sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby, who sat out during last Saturday’s contest against the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a sore shoulder, will be lined up in his usual spot for OSU. There are some players, Meyer said, that are still questionable for the game against the Spartans. While defensive lineman Michael Bennett has been medically cleared and will make the trip with the team up to East Lansing, Meyer said the sophomore isn’t “up to speed” yet and isn’t sure if he’ll be used on Saturday. An appearance from junior safety C.J. Barnett, who didn’t suit up against UAB with an ankle sprain, is probable, Meyer said. All Grown Up Miller said while looking at film from last year, he noticed a distinct difference between himself then and now. “I looked at like a few clips from last year and I just looked at my body and I was like, 190 (pounds), I was skinny,” he said. “I’m just more developed into a quarterback.” Through four games, Miller, who is now listed as 220 pounds, is 60-98 for 754 yards and seven touchdowns in addition to rushing for 510 yards on 67 totes. In last season’s 10-7 loss against the Spartans, Miller struggled and was just 5 of 10 for 56 yards. “We had a couple of struggles, it was bad,” he said. “We got it together this year.” read more

North Korea billed US 2 million for imprisoned students medical care

first_img By AFP https://jrnl.ie/4607493 27 Comments Short URL 26,759 Views Thursday 25 Apr 2019, 10:30 PM NORTH KOREA DEMANDED that the United States pay a $2 million medical bill for US student Otto Warmbier, who went into a coma after being tortured in the totalitarian country, a report said today.The Washington Post quoted unidentified sources as saying that a US official was made to sign a pledge to pay an invoice for the medical costs before being allowed to fly Warmbier back home from Pyongyang in 2017.The envoy signed the pledge on instructions from President Donald Trump, according to the Post report.It was unclear whether the bill was ever paid, the report said.Warmbier, a University of Virginia student, was imprisoned after being accused of taking down a propaganda poster in his hotel during a tour trip to North Korea.He fell into a coma after apparently being tortured behind bars and died days after arriving back in the United States.White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders’ only reaction to the report was: “We do not comment on hostage negotiations, which is why they have been so successful during this administration.”Trump has made rapprochement with North Korea one of his signature policies and he has held two summits with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.At their last meeting in Hanoi in February, Trump said he accepted Kim’s claim not to have known what had happened to Warmbier in prison, despite the case being extraordinarily sensitive.“I will take him at his word,” Trump said.© AFP 2019 Image: Jon Chol Jin Share Tweet Email North Korea billed US $2 million for imprisoned student’s medical care Otto Warmbier fell into a coma after apparently being tortured behind bars and died days after arriving back in the United States.

Thionville des habitants protestent contre linstallation dantennesrelais Free

first_imgThionville : des habitants protestent contre l’installation d’antennes-relais FreeMardi, des habitants de Thionville dans la Moselle ont demandé à la ville, par l’intermédiaire d’une pétition, d’interdire l’implantation de trois antennes-relais de Free dans la commune.Alors que le 4e opérateur de téléphonie mobile vient tout juste de dévoiler ses offres révolutionnaires, Free Mobile a également fait beaucoup parler de lui à Thionville mais pour des raisons bien différentes. Les habitants de cette commune de Moselle ont en effet demandé à la ville d’interdire l’implantation de trois antennes-relais destinés aux services de téléphonie mobile de Free. Ces antennes sont censés rejoindre sur le château d’eau de la ville, douze autres appartenant aux autres opérateurs, rapporte l’AFP.À lire aussi42 : Xavier Niel présente une nouvelle formation spécialisée dans le numériquePour s’opposer à cette installation, les habitants du quartier Beauregard ont lancé une pétition qui aurait déjà recueilli plus d’une centaine de signatures. Les protestataires se réfèrent notamment à des enquêtes établissant, selon eux, que les riverains des antennes-relais de téléphonie mobile souffriraient davantage de troubles tels que des acouphènes, problèmes de sommeil ou défauts de concentration que la moyenne de la population.Face à la demande des habitants, le maire de la ville, Bertrand Mertz a néanmoins répondu que la loi ne lui donnait pas la compétence de réglementer l’implantation des antennes-relais de téléphonie mobile sur le territoire de la commune. Une situation qui s’est déjà présentée à Colmar : en août 2011, le maire de la ville, Gilbert Meyer, avait refusé à Free Mobile le droit d’installer une antenne dans le clocher d’une église. Mais en octobre, le Conseil d’Etat avait cassé cette décision, estimant que seules les autorités de l’Etat désignées par la loi étaient compétentes pour réglementer de façon générale l’implantation des antennes-relais.

Fireworks sales for Fourth of July open

first_imgFireworks that boom may lead to busts this Fourth of July.Sales in unincorporated areas of the county began today ahead of the holiday. The county and a number of cities have enacted a wide range of rules regarding sales and use to curb fire, injury and waste.Fireworks can be used on the holiday from 9 a.m. to midnight in unincorporated areas, according to a press release from Clark County. Last year, fireworks could be discharged as early as June 28 in certain areas.“This update makes the allowable time for fireworks discharge consistent for all county residents in the unincorporated area,” Clark County Fire Marshal Jon Dunaway said.People who use fireworks illegally, which includes curfew or device-type violations, are subject to a $500 fine for first-time offenders, and a $1,000 fine for subsequent infractions.The county urges caution when disposing of fireworks, which contain heavy metals and other chemicals that can cause environmental damage by washing into storm drains. To avoid violating state and county littering laws, residents are advised to sweep up and dispose of firework debris after use and not light them near waterways.last_img read more

Jeffrey Epstein facing sex trafficking charges

first_imgNEW YORK — Eleven years after letting Jeffrey Epstein off lightly with a secret deal, federal prosecutors made another run at putting the billionaire financier behind bars on sex charges, accusing him Monday of abusing dozens of underage girls as young as 14.The 66-year-old hedge fund manager who once socialized with some of the world’s most powerful people was charged in a newly unsealed indictment with sex trafficking and conspiracy and could get up to 45 years in prison.Prosecutors said the evidence included a “vast trove” of hundreds or even thousands of lewd photographs of young women or girls, discovered in a search of his New York mansion after his arrest.Epstein, who was arrested over the weekend as he arrived in the U.S. from Paris aboard his private jet, was brought into court in the afternoon in a blue jail uniform, his hair disheveled, and pleaded not guilty. His lawyers argued that the matter had been settled a decade ago with a plea agreement in Florida involving similar allegations.He was ordered jailed at least until a bail hearing Thursday, when prosecutors planned to argue that the world traveler might flee — or try to intimidate witnesses — if released.last_img read more

Time Share on Mobile Devices Expected Grow to 23 Percent in 2014

first_imgLast year, mobile usage proved to be the catalyst pushing digital media into the forefront over all traditional platforms–including TV, radio and print. According to a recent study by eMarketer, digital media–which includes online, mobile and “other”–accounted for 43.4 percent of time spent with major media. That figure is up from 38.5 percent in 2012 and is expected to reach 47.1 percent in 2014.Mobile is now neck and neck with online–with both figuring in at 19.2 percent of the 43.3 percent digital aggregate. However, mobile is expected to outpace online in 2014 and will eat up a projected 23.3 percent of time spent versus online at 18 percent. This is the first time digital media has surpassed TV as the leading media platform. Television now accounts for 36.5 percent of total consumption time–down from 39.2 percent in 2012. And print is down to a mere 4.4 percent, dropping a full point from 2012. In 2014 that figure is expected to decline nearly a full point again-down to 3.5 percent. There’s more bad news for the print medium. Since 2010, average time spent with a print product has been nearly cut in half. Respondents said in 2010 they spent an average of 50 minutes per day with a print product. Today, that is down to 32 minutes, and is expected to fall another 6 minutes in 2014. Magazines still trail newspapers in that time split, but only slightly. In 2013, newspapers tallied an average of 18 minutes a day versus 14 minutes for magazines. In 2014, both figures are expected to drop, but magazines will close the gap, with newspapers clocking in at 14 minutes and magazines at 12 minutes. The silver lining for traditional media is the overall uptick in consumption. In 2010 media consumption averaged 10:46 (in minutes) and in 2013 that time increased to 12:03. So while traditional media consumers maybe migrating to new platforms, their appetite for  content is not waning.last_img read more

Imran Khan says Pakistan intelligence led US to Osama Bin Laden

first_imgWashington: Pakistan’s main spy agency provided the US with a lead that helped them find and kill Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, Prime Minister Imran Khan said Monday. Pakistan has until now officially denied having any knowledge of the terror chief until he was shot dead in a night time raid by US special forces on May 2, 2011, an incident that was a major national embarrassment and caused ties between the two countries to plummet. Also Read – Weak European inflation bolsters case for stimulus Advertise With Us Khan, who is visiting Washington on his first official trip, made his claim in an interview with Fox News when he was asked whether his country would release a jailed doctor whose fake immunization drive helped the US track and kill bin Laden in 2011. “This is a very emotive issue, because Shakeel Afridi in Pakistan is considered a spy,” he told host Bret Baier, referring to the doctor. Also Read – Uganda: Traveling girl from Congo dies of Ebola Advertise With Us “We in Pakistan always felt that we were an ally of the US and if we had been given the information about Osama bin Laden, we should have taken him out.” Baier then asked if Khan understood the scepticism around the Inter Services Intelligence agency (ISI) for leaking key information, to which Khan replied: “And yet it was ISI that gave the information which led to the location of Osama bin Laden.If you ask CIA it was ISI which gave the initial location through the phone connection.” Advertise With Us It was not immediately clear what Khan was referring to and he did not provide more detail. ‘Governance implosion syndrome’ Though Pakistan officially denies knowing that bin Laden was living on its territory, Asad Durrani, a former spymaster, told Al Jazeera in 2015 that the ISI probably knew where he was hiding and hoped to use him as a bargaining chip before he was killed. The 9/11 mastermind was tracked down after a 10-year manhunt to Abbottabad, a garrison town north of Islamabad where Pakistan’s military academy is headquartered, sparking allegations authorities were colluding with the terror group. A leaked Pakistani government report in 2013 said bin Laden arrived in Pakistan in the spring or summer of 2002 — after the 2001 US-led invasion of Afghanistan — and settled in Abbottabad in August 2005. The report, which coined the term “governance implosion syndrome” to explain the extent of official failures to detect him, said he was once stopped for speeding and enjoyed wearing a cowboy hat. Two former senior Pakistani military officials told AFP in 2015 that a defector from Pakistani intelligence assisted the US in its hunt for bin Laden, but denied the two countries had officially worked together.last_img read more

LGBTI activist is out open and proud

first_imgTHEO PANAYIDES meets an LGBTI activist who says there is still a long way to go to promote people’s rights in Cyprus, a country that lacks a gay public figureTalking with John Zacharias Theophanous – the Paphos representative of Accept-LGBT Cyprus, among other things – we end up talking mostly about his parents. This is not so surprising. Even now, with society more accepting of LGBTI issues (maybe even especially now, when living as a gay man isn’t the nightmare it might once have been for Zacharias), coming out to one’s family and friends is perhaps the most fraught and scary part of making one’s way in the world. “Coming out is a very lonely process,” he admits, “you are going to walk the road alone”. There are no rules, except that one should never be forcibly ‘outed’. “People need to come out on their own.”We meet two days before the fifth annual Pride parade, sitting down at the Home for Co-operation in Nicosia where he once attended a pioneering conference against homophobia in 2012, in his early days with Accept. Going in, I’m a little wary. Talking to an activist isn’t always much fun; they tend to harangue you. He does a bit of that, but mostly he’s good company: chatty, lively, candid about everything, peppering his speech with charming South African-isms (“I beg yours?” for ‘I beg your pardon?’) and Cypriot village sayings. He doesn’t seem angry, I note. “I’m not,” he replies; “I’m not angry.” His Facebook page, in addition to his two names (John is what Anglophones tend to call him; Zacharias, or Zac – which he prefers overall – is what Greek-speakers do), includes a nickname, ‘Zacharoyiannos’ or ‘Sugar John’, given to him by his grandmother. The nickname says a lot about his sweet, ingratiating nature; that he’s not embarrassed to put it on Facebook says even more.He’s shaven-headed, not very tall, a few months shy of 40; his glasses have heavy black rims, his beard has stray flecks of grey. He’s a ‘ZBC’ (Zimbabwe-born Cypriot), though raised in South Africa. He speaks eight languages, and works as a software engineer. It’s quickly noticeable that his left eye wanders, as if the eyeball’s been loosened (he’s on a waiting list for a cornea transplant), a reminder of having been carjacked in Pretoria while stopped at a traffic light. “In South Africa you don’t stop at red traffic lights. You look, and if nobody’s coming you just go, you do not stop,” he explains. He made the mistake of stopping, and “they came, they threw me out of the car, they bashed me to a million pieces”; the attackers kicked him so many times, they permanently damaged his eye. ‘Why not just take the car?’ I wonder. Why all the violence? “It’s mostly – um, a retaliation against the ex-white regime. So they see every white person as an enemy, if you like”. Thuggish robbers fancying themselves as race warriors; a reminder – speaking of LGBTI rights, and rights in general – of the toxic legacy of oppression.That was in 2004 and proved to be the final straw, prompting the family to move back to Cyprus. It was just the three of them, Zacharias and his parents, both of whom have since passed away (his dad died at 60, of kidney failure; his mum at 65, of a heart attack). Mum and Dad hailed from villages in Paphos, and both worked as costume designers at the South African State Theatre – an unusually bohemian profession, and indeed it was an unusually liberal household. His parents had black and Asian friends, long before the end of apartheid, and were never homophobic – but of course there were limits. “My parents suffered from what I like to call NIMBY,” he notes wryly. “Not in My Backyard. Which means everybody’s okay to be gay, except for their own son.”Here, in a nutshell, was the situation. Zacharias went to an all-boys school, “a macho, rugby-and-cricket-playing kind of school” in the not just homophobic but “incrrrrredibly homophobic” South Africa of the early 90s. The school liked to mix the oldest and youngest boys, to promote school spirit, so it was that, in PE class, 12-year-old Zacharias found himself surrounded by 18-year-olds: “I saw a guy in a Speedo,” he recalls, “well, a couple of guys in Speedos, and I was like ‘Oh wow, cool. I like this. Whoa, what’s happening here?’.” That was his first vivid sexual feeling, and the explicit recognition of himself as gay – “as Niles Crane would say: I had an epiphany!” – but in fact he’d always known something was different. “Even in my primary school, which was co-ed, I wasn’t really interested in girls. I used to play with girls – but for some reason, maybe instinctively, they used to treat me as part of the crowd. They never used to treat me as, you know, ‘You’re one of the boys’. They were like ‘OK, come on over, let’s play”. Later, as an older boy, he’d rifle through his mum’s gossip mags and peek at the centrefolds – nothing sexual, just celebs in expensive fashions. When the picture was a woman, “I’d flip past,” but when it was a guy he’d tear out the page and put it in his drawer. “The nice ones that I liked, I used to stack them,” he recalls with a chuckle. “Hoping that my mother wouldn’t look.”On the one hand, the dawning realisation of his sexual and emotional identity; on the other, the fact that – as he earnestly puts it – “I grew up in a family”. His parents never ate without him at the table; Saturday was movie night, Sunday was family day. The three were close-knit, and very affectionate; the family dynamic was also unusual. Zacharias is very clear on the Nature vs. Nurture debate – “I was born like this,” he affirms. “I didn’t ‘become’. I am, because that’s how I was born!” – but it’s still intriguing that he grew up with a quiet, sensitive father and a strong-willed, domineering mother.“You know, I’d say the roles had been reversed,” he muses: “My mother was my father, and my father was my mother.” His dad always suspected that his son was gay – but Zacharias only came out to him on his deathbed (“He looked at me. He was, like, really ill, and he says to me [whispering]: ‘I know. It’s okay’”) just because his dad was so very sensitive, and he’d always been afraid of hurting his feelings. “I played two roles in my father’s life,” he notes astutely: “I was his son, but I was also the daughter he never had”. His dad always wanted Zacharias to hug him as he left home and give him a kiss when they met, and was deeply hurt if he didn’t; in the evenings, when they sat and watched TV, “I’d sort of cuddle into my dad’s arms, I would go into ‘daughter mode’ and he’d stroke my head and just sit there with me”.His mum, on the other hand, was tough: “I call my mother ‘Hitler’. You know? She had an iron fist,” he recalls with a laugh. “Even as a child, if anyone did anything to me I’d never say anything to my mother, because if I did she’d go after them with a machete!” Needless to say, she was tough on him too: “Discipline was first. I mean, for a while – OK, she was also very affectionate, but she was married to the slipper for a while! You know, ‘You’re gonna get it’.” It was to his mother that the young man came out, towards the end of their time in South Africa – by which time he was at university in Pretoria, doing Computer Engineering and increasingly open about who he was.It was only in his 20s that he first became sexually active; adolescence – that notoriously hormonal time – was frustratingly repressed. “I actually threw myself into my studies, that was my crutch if you like.” At school, he was bullied by the rugby-playing types (was he openly gay? “Um, no. But people could tell”), somewhat ironically since they were – and remain – precisely the type of guys he found attractive. He wasn’t beaten up, being good with his fists, but was mocked, felt up, called a “fag”. Coming out to friends was impossible (he and the other obviously-gay boys at school studiously avoided each other, so as not to attract attention); coming out to his loving, close-knit family was even more impossible. The only upside was that his sense of self-worth remained strong. “I never said to myself ‘This is wrong’. You know, never went down that road. I was like ‘Yeah okay, I like guys and that’s it’… The only difference was, I never expressed it, which came later. I never voiced it. I wasn’t the activist that I am now, if you like”.That particular turning-point is a story in itself. Zacharias’ hands are covered in white splotches, as though the skin has been burned in a fire. This is vitiligo, an auto-immune disorder that began just a few days after his mother died. Not only was her death traumatic in itself (“I went home and found her dead on the floor”), they also had “unfinished business”, as he puts it. Coming clean about his sexual orientation had been only partly successful: his mum had burst into tears right away – like his dad, she’d always suspected; “She was waiting for me to tell her” – then spent many years ignoring the subject. When they moved to Cyprus, she told him “I’ll cover for you” (meaning she wouldn’t press him to get married), “just don’t tell anybody that you’re gay, especially the close family in the village”. By this time, of course, he was open with friends and employers, so “I had a dichotomy: different at home, different in social environments… So it was very exhausting.”He was in Paphos, having moved from Nicosia when his father got sick. He and his mum were close, but bickered a lot; she pampered him, but also drove him nuts – and then she died, quite suddenly, in 2010. His skin broke out in vitiligo, the body’s way of expelling stress. One afternoon, while on bereavement leave from work, he attempted suicide: “I didn’t know what to do – because I’d had my parents, and then all of a sudden I was alone… And then I was like OK, I’m gonna end it. I don’t want to carry on anymore”. He grabbed two handfuls of pills, swallowed one handful, prepared to swallow the other – then, out of nowhere, “a very dear friend” came in through the unlocked kitchen door, having come by to check on him.She pushed him, to make him drop the pills. He fell and hit his head, “and that made me unconscious. And then I saw visions of my mum and dad. My mum was talking, my dad wasn’t – as usual!… And she says to me: ‘I know that you’re gay, and I’m okay with it now. I wasn’t when I was alive, but now I am. I want you to carry on, and I want you to make a difference in someone else’s life. Educate people. I was wrong, I should’ve accepted you’… I woke up after two days and I just decided, you know what? I’m going to pick myself up, and I’m going to move forward”. This was divine intervention, he believes (Zacharias is religious, and laments the chasm that’s opened up between religion and the LGBTI community); if that lady hadn’t arrived, he’d be dead now. Soon after, he got involved with Accept and decided to work in Paphos “because it’s a small community, and people talk, and people feel uncomfortable – and I just decided, you know what? I’m gonna make a difference”.LGBT pride parade NicosiaFor the past seven years, he’s tried to do exactly that: “I’m open. I’m loud. I’m there. I’m OK”. People have been supportive, barring one close relative who cut him off after he went public. Accept holds two “rainbow meetings” a month, aimed mostly at LGBTI youngsters (though not just youngsters; a middle-aged man came out recently) plus their allies and parents. He tries to give advice about coming out, trying to keep it realistic (he won’t push kids to tell their parents for the sake of activism; if the reaction is likely to be negative, it’s often better to wait till they leave home). He urges people – including heterosexuals – to get tested for HIV, and also answers their questions. “Are you ‘the man’ or ‘the woman’?” some want to know (“We’re both guys, we don’t always have roles,” he replies). One confused gentleman asked him “When’s the operation?”, having assumed that gay means trans. “But I’m glad they’re asking,” Zacharias adds fervently, “because the most important thing to me is education. And when people don’t ask questions, that gets to me. Ask! Learn! I will answer. As embarrassing as the questions are, just ask me.”It’s easy, chatting so convivially two days before Pride, to assume that the fight is over. In fact, he says firmly, “there’s still a long way to go”. Civil unions are certainly an achievement, but adoption rights still require lobbying, and the situation with trans people (the ‘T’ in LGBTI) remains problematic: at the moment, in Cyprus, they can only obtain new documents after a complete sex-change, which many can’t afford or may not even want (Accept wants the criterion to be merely how they identify, as in many European countries). Above all, there’s an absence of gay people in public life – no openly gay MPs, or even local councillors. It’s as though the ‘problem’ only affects a sub-category of noisy but invisible misfits, hidden away in obscure homosexual lives, Them as opposed to Us.How to make things better? Turns out there’s one final facet to John Zacharias Theophanous, this candid, voluble, sweet-natured man with the damaged eye and turbulent past. He works in Paphos but, unexpectedly, adores Nicosia, where he keeps a flat and spends every weekend; he loves its authenticity, the Levantine vibe of the old town. In fact, he has two websites: www.jztheophanous.lgbt/, where he talks about LGBTI activism – but also https://www.the-nicosian.org/, where he talks about his favourite capital! “I know it sounds like a very, very weird dream,” says Zacharias, “but I’ve got it as one of my goals: I want to be Nicosia’s first openly gay mayor.” He pauses, eyes aglow with the thought of this bold, supremely satisfying bit of public activism. “And I’ve even got my slogan,” he goes on, nodding happily: “‘A gay mayor with straight answers’!”. I wouldn’t put it past him. You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndoFinance101[Photos] Wait Till You See The Inside.
