The crew of the Sea Shepherd ship, Bob Barker, has assisted Gabonese authorities in the arrest of three illegal fishing trawlers in coastal waters off Gabon, Central West Africa. The arrests followed a three-day coordinated effort between the Marine Nationale (Gabonese Navy), the ANPA (Fisheries Enforcement Agency) and Sea Shepherd that culminated in a successful night raid on the illegal vessels in the early hours of Sunday morning. British oil giant BP should drop its plans for deepwater oil exploration drilling in the Great Australian Bight after Australiaa€™s offshore oil and gas authority, NOPSEMA, sent back its application for a second time.
The announcement formed part of a $1.54m budget for shark hazard mitigation and continues to anger conservationists and the community, which came out in their tens of thousands to oppose lethal drum lines off Western Australiaa€™s coastline.
On the 7th of December 2015, Sea Shepherd Australia Limited instructed EDO NSW to submit a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection seeking photographs and video footage of Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean in 2008. In 2008, the Australian Customs patrol vessel Oceanic Viking along with A319 aerial surveillance flights, documented the killing of whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary in Antarctica. The Sea Shepherd ship, Bob Barker, has arrived in the Republic of Gabon for the commencement of Operation Albacore, a new campaign to tackle illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fishing, under the direction of the Government of Gabon.
Throughout the 2016 tuna fishing season, Gabonese marines (Marine Nationale) and officers with the Fisheries Enforcement Agency (ANPA) will be stationed on-board the Bob Barker, working alongside Sea Shepherd crew to patrol Gabon's sovereign waters.
As BP held its annual general meeting in London on April 14, Sea Shepherd, The Wilderness Society, and the Great Australian Bight Alliance took the fight to save the Great Australian Bight to BPa€™s doorstep. Coordinated protests in Australia and the United Kingdom took place as BPa€™s shareholders met, with a mock oil spill held at the organisationa€™s head office in Melbourne, and a giant inflatable whale installed outside the AGM in London.
Protestors helped clean up a mock oil spill outside BPa€™s headquarters in Melbourne this morning to highlight the British companya€™s plans to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight. On the other side of the world later today there will also be a protest at BPa€™s annual general meeting in London. The 6 illegal fishing vessels of the FU YUAN YU fleet are now in China and the final investigation into their fisheries crimes is now in the hands of the Chinese authorities.
Sea Shepherd has offered to hand over the evidence in this case, comprising of 4 kilometres of driftnet, marking beacons, physical sightings, in addition to eye-witnesses, photographs and log-book entries, to the Chinese authorities. On March 29, 2016 at 2027 UTC, the illegal fishing vessel Fu Yuan Yu 076 entered the port of Zhuhai in Guangdong Province in position 22 Degrees 02 Minutes (North); 113 Degrees 04 Minutes (East). This is the second attempt made by the vessel in as many days to call a port after trying to enter Xincun harbour yesterday, and the first instance in which the vessel is well inside of China's jurisdictional control.
Sea Shepherda€™s Flagship, Steve Irwin, which is in pursuit of the poaching vessel, has reported the Fu Yuan Yu 076a€™s position to the Chinese government, providing authorities with an immediate opportunity to arrest and investigate the vessel.
The Queensland Fisheries Minister, Leanne Donaldson has revealed in a letter to Independent MP, Peter Wellington, that the Department has requested a permit for additional drum lines in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park for the potential future trialing of new technology such as smart drum lines.
The requested permit however, raises concerns, as there would be no need to permanently increase fishing effort within the Great Barrier Reef to trial smart drum lines and the Ministera€™s Office has advised that there are no current plans for the use of smart drum lines.
In a statement released today, the Institute for Cetacean Research (ICR), the body behind the Japanese governmenta€™s whaling program, announced the return of the Japanese whaling fleet from its Antarctic slaughter.
It is the first time that the Japanese whalers have returned to the Southern Ocean to slaughter whales since the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled its whaling program to be illegal in 2014. The statement confirmed that 333 whales, including a number of pregnant females, have been harpooned in Antarctic waters by the whalers since December. The fishing vessel Fu Yuan Yu 076, one of six vessels documented fishing illegally in the Indian Ocean by Sea Shepherd, has crossed over to South China Sea from the high seas of the Indian Ocean, through the Malacca Straits. After much anticipation, Sea Shepherd Global has today unveiled the name of its New Patrol Vessel, Ocean Warrior. The ship name was selected by a panel of representatives from Sea Shepherd and the Dutch Postcode Lottery, from over 1,400 entries in Sea Shepherda€™s Name Our New Patrol Vessel competition.
The Ministry has been working with international organizations and other authorities and has collected more than 3,000 documents to prove the illegal business structure of Vidal Armadores. BP is treating the Australian people, the Australian Senate and even Australiaa€™s offshore oil and gas authority (NOPSEMA) with contempt by resubmitting its application to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight before the Senate inquiry into BPa€™s plans has even heard submissions. The Australian Senatea€™s Environment Committee is looking into the potential environmental, social and economic impacts of BPa€™s planned exploratory oil drilling project and any future oil or gas production in the Great Australian Bight and will report back by May 12th 2016.
Sea Shepherda€™s Flagship, the Steve Irwin, has intercepted a fleet of six illegal fishing vessels, the Fu Yuan Yu fleet, in the Indian Ocean. The Sea Shepherd ship, under the command of Captain Siddharth Chakravarty, has now engaged in a pursuit of one of the ships, the Fu Yuan YU 076. The six Chinese-flagged vessels were located on the Ninety East Ridge in international waters; an area managed by the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (RFMO).
Sea Shepherda€™s Flagship, the Steve Irwin, is en route to the Indian Ocean to confront a killer in our oceans.
A fleet of fishing vessels is actively fishing on the high seas of the Indian Ocean using driftnets; a form of fishing banned by the United Nations in 1992 due to its indiscriminate and destructive impact. Taking advantage of the remoteness of the region, and in the absence of law enforcement, the fleet has demonstrated a resurgence of this out-dated, outlawed practice. Authorities in Indonesia have sunk the last of the a€?Bandit 6a€? toothfish poaching vessels, the Viking, in Pangandaran, West Java.
Sea Shepherd representatives were on the ground to film the sinking, which marks the end of over a decade of toothfish poaching in the Southern Ocean at the hands of the Bandit 6, and the conclusion of Sea Shepherda€™s 12th Southern Ocean Defense Campaign, Operation Icefish 2015-16. Site visits for a potential a€?Shark Spottersa€? program have been finalised within Western Australia, where approximately 25 specific beaches were assessed, with a focus on the South-West coast. Representatives from Shark Spotters in Cape Town, South Africa, were brought over to Australia from a crowd-funding initiative started by Sea Shepherd Australia and No Shark Cull Inc. Up to five sites, all situated in the South-West of the state were identified as having potential, with three in particular earmarked for a recommended feasibility trail. Sea Shepherd Captains Peter Hammarstedt and Siddharth Chakravarty have congratulated Spanish authorities on the arrest of six people following raids on the headquarters of known fishing crime syndicate, Vidal Armadores. Reports indicate that the six arrested, including company owner Antonio Vidal SuA?rez, are accused of illegally fishing for Antarctic and Patagonian toothfish. Last week, Director of Sea Shepherd Netherlands, Geert Vons, and Director of Sea Shepherd Asia, Gary Stokes, visited the Damen shipyard in Turkey to review progress on the construction of Sea Shepherda€™s New Patrol Vessel. The hunt for the last of six known toothfish poaching vessels has ended with the arrest of the Nigerian-flagged Viking in Indonesia. The announcement of the vessela€™s arrest was made at a press conference in Jakarta today, held by Indonesian Fisheries Minister, Susi Pudjiastuti, the Commander of the Western Naval Fleet and other high-ranking Indonesian officials. The a€?Shark Spottersa€? will be undertaking a range of site visits at popular beaches to determine if the topology lends itself to a similar program, and will be liaising with key stakeholders to discuss their findings. Rare Mobula Rays found by Sea Shepherd crew dead in Queensland Shark Nets  a€“ one with large bites! Sea Shepherd crew aligned with the Apex Harmony Campaign, have made a gruesome discovery of two rare mobula rays, which appear to be Japanese Devilrays, dead in a shark net, 100 meters from each other at Miami Beach on the Gold Coast. Japanese Devilrays have rarely been documented in Australia, with only two reported sightings throughout Australia recorded according to the Shark Red List Authority.
Antarctica is considered one of the last pristine environments in the world, yet it now faces a new threat from industrial scale krill fishing. Following a successful presence at dive shows in the United Kingdom, Germany and the Netherlands, Sea Shepherd Global is proud to announce the official launch of a new initiative, Sea Shepherd Dive. Sea Shepherd Dive has been developed to provide a a€?support and reporta€? network to enable the dive community to get involved with Sea Shepherd and its worldwide mission to stop poachers and illegal operations that are destroying our marine environment.
In the vastness of the Southern Ocean, the Japanese whaling fleet has likely been able to illegally slaughter their reduced quota of 333 Minke whales.
Because of the expanded area of operations and the fact that they were targeting only a third of their quota, the Japanese whalers were able to get away with violating the verdict of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) that Japanese whaling operations in the Southern Ocean should be shut down. The crackdown on poachers in the Southern Ocean continues with news that authorities in Senegal, West Africa, have detained the internationally wanted toothfish-poaching vessel, Kunlun. Reports allege that the Kunlun had previously falsified its registry, claiming Indonesia as its flag state. As the worlda€™s oceans face a devastating plastic crisis Sea Shepherd Australia today announced a dedicated campaign to combat the growing tide of marine debris in the worlda€™s oceans and waterways. Marine debris is a globally recognised environmental issue as marine ecosystems world-wide are increasingly affected by human-made refuse, much of which is plastic. The crew of the Sea Shepherd ship, Steve Irwin, has filmed a rare encounter with a Blue whale mother and her calf. The ship, which is currently engaged in Operation Icefish 2015-16 a€“ Sea Shepherda€™s 12th Southern Ocean Defense Campaign a€“ encountered the pair while on the search for illegal activity on the high seas.
Blue whales are the largest animals that have ever lived on this planet, growing up to 30 meters in length. Sea Shepherda€™s Flagship, the Steve Irwin, has departed Fremantle, Western Australia for the Southern Ocean. Led by returning Captain, Siddharth Chakravarty, Sea Shepherd will once again defend the pristine waters of Antarctica from poachers, with the aim to shutdown illegal activities in what is the worlda€™s last great wilderness. BP will be facing increasing opposition to its plans to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight, with many environment groups forming an alliance with Traditional elders and locals to campaign against the British companya€™s plans. The Great Australian Bight Alliance includes Sea Shepherd, Surfrider Foundation Australia, the Wilderness Society, Mirning and Kokatha elders, Oil Free Seas Kangaroo Island and Clean Bight Alliance Australia (West Coast SA).
In a Concerns Notice written to both the Daily Telegraph and News Corporation Australia on behalf of Sea Shepherd Australia, it is stated that the article titled a€?Greenies caught up in drum line sabotage scandala€? makes a number of serious and untrue allegations and false imputations against Sea Shepherd and that the article was replicated in a number of other New Corporation outlets such as The Australian, The Courier Mail, The Herald Sun and The Advertiser. As Sea Shepherd is preparing the Steve Irwin to take on the four vessels of the Japanese whale poachers and two remaining tooth fish poaching boats, the Daily Telegraph has fired a torpedo into our side.
As most of you would be aware, in September this year Sea Shepherd Global launched an SOS Emergency Patrol Appeal to raise funds to replace four of our small boats, confiscated during our direct-action campaigns in the Faroe Islands. The Spitfire, Echo and Farley, as well as the tender of the Brigitte Bardot , were seized by the Danish Navy and Faroese police in 2014 and 2015 while in the line of duty, defending the pilot whales and dolphins in the Faroe Islands.
Three Sea Shepherd crew members working on the Apex Harmony shark campaign were questioned by police this morning regarding their activities. The questioning came about as a result of New South Wales fisheries making a false accusation based on no evidence at all, that the Sea Shepherd crew had de-baited the smart drum lines in Ballina and Byron Bay. Sea Shepherd Australia is concerned that boaties are at risk due to the lack of information from the New South Walesa€™ Government regarding the placement of listening stations and smart drum lines in Ballina and Byron Bay. Without a notice to mariners regarding the location of these new technologies, boaties run the risk of running into and over smart drum lines during rough conditions and poor lighting. A national poll, commissioned by Sea Shepherd Australia and undertaken by Australian market research company Roy Morgan Research, has shown that 76.9% of Australians want the Federal Government to send a ship to oppose Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean. National Shark Campaign Coordinator for Sea Shepherd, Natalie Banks was asked to assist with the release of a€?Oliviaa€?, a Hawksbill Turtle at Julian Rocks in New South Wales today, after Australian Seabird Rescue (which also rescues turtles) heard about the number of turtles caught on drum lines within Queensland. Australian Seabird Rescue, based in Ballina in northern New South Wales, made a strategic decision to release a€?Oliviaa€? at a Marine Park where there are no drum lines in place, and held off on the release until they knew for sure that no smart drum lines were in New South Walesa€™ water.
Sea Shepherd Australia is calling on the New South Wales Government for greater transparency regarding the use of smart drum lines, stating that the public has a right to know what is being caught and when.
The smart drum lines, which have been implemented in Ballina and Coffs Harbour have been utilised without any transparency on catch data and response times to release animals caught on the hook. Yesterday, a pod of 11 pilot whales was slaughtered at the killing beach of FuglafirA°i in the Faroe Islands. CEO of Sea Shepherd Global, Captain Alex Cornelissen, has condemned Japana€™s plans to return to the Southern Ocean to slaughter whales this austral summer. Sea Shepherd has slammed the Queensland Department of Fisheriesa€™ proposal to increase drum lines in the Great Barrier Reef in a submission to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, stating that the proposal would add further pressures to the already fragile reef. The submission, written by National Shark Campaign Coordinator for Sea Shepherd, Natalie Banks specifies the lack of justification for the proposed increased of approximately 65 drum lines into the World Heritage site; stipulating that there has not been an unwanted shark encounter within the famous tourist site, for almost 30 years. Sea Shepherd Australia is disappointed that the NSW Government has ignored advice from a independent review into non-lethal options to mitigate shark encounters in the state. The disappointment comes after Premier Mike Baird, announced that smart drum lines would be used in northern New South Wales as a result of increased shark activity in the area over the past 12 months. Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is proud to be one of 30 environmental groups which have bestowed the international a€?dishonor" of being "Shark Enemy 2016a€? upon Luis Guillermo Solis Rivera, the President of Costa Rica. Sea Shepherd Global CEO, Captain Alex Cornelissen, has been served with a summons to appear in court in the Faroe Islands. Captain Cornelissen, a Dutch national, was issued with the notice by a Danish police officer outside the Danish parliament building yesterday. Captain Paul Watson files a petition against Costa Rica for violating his rights through politically motivated legal proceedings. An affidavit provided by Sea Shepherda€™s Captain Peter Hammarstedt was submitted as evidence in a contempt case against Japanese whaling company, Kyodo Senpaku Kaisha Ltd (Kyodo), in the Australian Federal Court in Sydney, Australia. In 2008, Humane Society International (HSI) successfully obtained a declaration in the Federal Court that Kyodo was breaking Australian law by killing whales in Antarctica under the guise of scientific research, and also obtained an injunction ordering the company to stop killing whales in the Australian Whale Sanctuary. Sea Shepherd Australia has engaged a fourth-year evolutionary biology student from Harvard University to assist with analysing reams of information secured as part of a Freedom of Information request regarding the catch data associated with the Queensland Shark Control Program.
Carolyn Pushaw, who is studying in Australia with the School for International Training, contacted Sea Shepherd around two months ago to indicate her interest in helping with the Apex Harmony Campaign. Sea Shepherd has long been a champion of non-violent direct action in defense of the world's oceans.
For this reason we are extremely proud to partner with 5 Gyres in combating what has been described as a€?the deadliest predator of the sea*a€? a€“ marine plastic.
Following the unprecedented success of Operation Icefish, Sea Shepherd today announced its second campaign to target illegal Patagonian and Antarctic toothfish operators in the Southern Ocean; Operation Icefish 2015-16. Led by returning Captain, Sid Chakravarty, Sea Shepherd will once again focus its attention on defending the pristine waters of Antarctica, with the aim to eliminate illegal fishing of vulnerable toothfish from the region. After months of dealing with red tape and administrative hold ups within the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, Sea Shepherd Australia is putting the Queensland Government on notice with a vote of no confidence in government authorities when it comes to shark management in the state.
Sea Shepherd Australia is beyond shocked upon learning that the Queensland Department of Fisheries is looking to increase the number of drum lines that require a permit to be used within the Great Barrier Reef from 148 to 213; an increase of 65 drum lines. The revelation comes as the Department of Fisheries released an information pack outlining their proposal, which the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority has released and made available, in order to collate public submissions.
The NSW Government recently announced a world first $16 million shark strategy which will see the trial this summer of several new technologies such as barrier nets, in-water sonar buoys and increased aerial surveillance at several locations along the NSW coast. NSW Apex Harmony Coordinator Allyson Jennings commends Premier Mike Baird and NSW DPI Minister Niall Blair for taking a proactive and considered approach. Updated catch figures for the New South Wales shark meshing program has shown that 17,131 marine animals have been caught by the program since 1950; the majority being hammerhead sharks and rays. Sea Shepherd Australia has also been looking at mortality rates of catches within the program and has found of the 4,859 Hammerhead sharks caught in the program and accounting for almost a third of the catch, 97% have died over the past 20 years, as a direct result of being caught in the nets. Officers of Scuttled Poaching Vessel, Thunder, Sentenced to Jail and Fined 15 Million Euros.
Information from the Australian Lifeguard Service and Surf Life Saving NSW regarding beach attendance, in addition to tourism information, has shown time and again, that shark encounters play no role in regards to visitor numbers to beaches or regions of New South Wales.
Natalie Banks, National Shark Campaign Coordinator states that data available from July 2009 onwards points to at least 13 examples of increases in beach attendance and tourism after a shark encounter or fatality, and states that New South Wales authorities are ignoring the empirical data available to them.
After extensive preparation and in cooperation with the National Judicial Authority of Ecuador and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Sea Shepherd Galapagos organized its first-ever capacity-building course on the landmark World Heritage Convention and its application in the Galapagos Islands. The Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (the World Heritage Convention) is a successful global instrument for the protection of cultural and natural heritage.
The Dutch-registered Sea Shepherd ships Sam Simon and Bob Barker have arrived in the port of Bremen, Germany, marking the official conclusion of Sea Shepherda€™s sixth Faroe Islands Pilot Whale Defense Campaign, Operation Sleppid Grindini. The ships join Sea Shepherda€™s Australian-registered fast trimaran, Brigitte Bardot, which returned to Bremen from the Faroe Islands in late September.
Operation Saimaa Seal was set up to protect the world's most endangered seal and one of the most endangered mammals in the world, the Saimaa ringed seal of Lake Saimaa, Finland. The Saimaa ringed seal is on the brink of extinction with experts predicting that the species will be completely wiped-out within a few decades.
One of the biggest threats to the critically endangered Seal is illegal fishnets and fish traps. Last week, while patrolling the waters of the Faroe Islands, the crew of the Sea Shepherd ship, Sam Simon, discovered the carcass of a pilot whale floating in the waters just outside KlaksvA­k in the Kalsoyar fjord in the northeast of the archipelago.

The NAACP bestows the annual Image Awards for achievement in the arts and entertainment, and the annual Spingarn Medals for outstanding positive achievement of any kind, on deserving black Americans.
The NAACP's headquarters is in Baltimore, with additional regional offices in California, New York, Michigan, Colorado, Georgia, Texas and Maryland.[6] Each regional office is responsible for coordinating the efforts of state conferences in the states included in that region.
In 1905, a group of thirty-two prominent African-American leaders met to discuss the challenges facing people of color and possible strategies and solutions.
This section may need to be rewritten entirely to comply with Wikipedia's quality standards. The Race Riot of 1908 in Abraham Lincoln's hometown of Springfield, Illinois, had highlighted the urgent need for an effective civil rights organization in the U.S.
On May 30, 1909, the Niagara Movement conference took place at New York City's Henry Street Settlement House, from which an organization of more than 40 individuals emerged, calling itself the National Negro Committee.
The conference resulted in a more influential and diverse organization, where the leadership was predominantly white and heavily Jewish American. According to Pbs.org "Over the years Jews have also expressed empathy (capability to share and understand another's emotion and feelings) with the plight of Blacks.
As a member of the Princeton chapter of the NAACP, Albert Einstein corresponded with Du Bois, and in 1946 Einstein called racism "America's worst disease".[21][22] Du Bois continued to play a pivotal role in the organization and served as editor of the association's magazine, The Crisis, which had a circulation of more than 30,000.
An African American drinks out of a segregated water cooler designated for "colored" patrons in 1939 at a streetcar terminal in Oklahoma City. In its early years, the NAACP concentrated on using the courts to overturn the Jim Crow statutes that legalized racial segregation.
The NAACP began to lead lawsuits targeting disfranchisement and racial segregation early in its history. In 1916, when the NAACP was just seven years old, chairman Joel Spingarn invited James Weldon Johnson to serve as field secretary. The NAACP devoted much of its energy during the interwar years to fighting the lynching of blacks throughout the United States by working for legislation, lobbying and educating the public. The NAACP also spent more than a decade seeking federal legislation against lynching, but Southern white Democrats voted as a block against it or used the filibuster in the Senate to block passage. In alliance with the American Federation of Labor, the NAACP led the successful fight to prevent the nomination of John Johnston Parker to the Supreme Court, based on his support for denying the vote to blacks and his anti-labor rulings. The organization also brought litigation to challenge the "white primary" system in the South. The board of directors of the NAACP created the Legal Defense Fund in 1939 specifically for tax purposes. With the rise of private corporate litigators like the NAACP to bear the expense, civil suits became the pattern in modern civil rights litigation. The NAACP's Baltimore chapter, under president Lillie Mae Carroll Jackson, challenged segregation in Maryland state professional schools by supporting the 1935 Murray v. Locals viewing the bomb-damaged home of Arthur Shores, NAACP attorney, Birmingham, Alabama, on September 5, 1963.
The campaign for desegregation culminated in a unanimous 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown v.
The State of Alabama responded by effectively barring the NAACP from operating within its borders because of its refusal to divulge a list of its members.



New organizations such as the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) rose up with different approaches to activism.
The NAACP continued to use the Supreme Court's decision in Brown to press for desegregation of schools and public facilities throughout the country. By the mid-1960s, the NAACP had regained some of its preeminence in the Civil Rights Movement by pressing for civil rights legislation. In 1993 the NAACP's Board of Directors narrowly selected Reverend Benjamin Chavis over Reverend Jesse Jackson to fill the position of Executive Director. In 1996 Congressman Kweisi Mfume, a Democratic Congressman from Maryland and former head of the Congressional Black Caucus, was named the organization's president.
In the second half of the 1990s, the organization restored its finances, permitting the NAACP National Voter Fund to launch a major get-out-the-vote offensive in the 2000 U.S. During the 2000 Presidential election, Lee Alcorn, president of the Dallas NAACP branch, criticized Al Gore's selection of Senator Joe Lieberman for his Vice-Presidential candidate because Lieberman was Jewish. Alcorn, who had been suspended three times in the previous five years for misconduct, subsequently resigned from the NAACP and started his own organization called the Coalition for the Advancement of Civil Rights. Alcorn's remarks were also condemned by the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Jewish groups and George W. The Internal Revenue Service informed the NAACP in October 2004 that it was investigating its tax-exempt status based on Julian Bond's speech at its 2004 Convention in which he criticized President George W.
As the American LGBT rights movement gained steam after the Stonewall riots of 1969, the NAACP became increasingly affected by the movement to suppress or deny rights to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. This aspect of the NAACP came into existence in 1936 and now is made of over 600 groups and totaling over 30,000 individuals.
In 2003, NAACP President and CEO, Kweisi Mfume, appointed Brandon Neal, the National Youth and College Division Director.[46] Currently, Stefanie L. Since 1978 the NAACP has sponsored the Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) program for high school youth around the United States.
When right-wing media maven Andrew Breitbart publicized a maliciously edited video of a speech at a NAACP-sponsored Georgia event by USDA worker Shirley Sherrod, the mainstream press recycled his libel without properly vetting it, and the organization itself piled on without properly checking what had happened.[48] NAACP president and CEO has since apologized. 21.Jump up ^ Fred Jerome, Rodger Taylor (2006), Einstein on Race and Racism, Rutgers University Press, 2006. 22.Jump up ^ Warren Washington (2007), Odyssey in Climate Modeling, Global Warming, and Advising Five Presidents. 30.Jump up ^ AJCongress on Statement by NAACP Chapter Director on Lieberman, American Jewish Congress (AJC), August 9, 2000. 33.Jump up ^ "President Bush addresses the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's (NAACP) national convention" (video). 37.Jump up ^ "Election Year Activities and the Prohibition on Political Campaign Intervention for Section 501(c)(3) Organizations".

In 1987, Bishop Zubik was appointed Administrative Secretary to then-Pittsburgh Bishop Anthony J. In 1995, he was named Associate General Secretary and Chancellor of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, and on January 1, 1996, became Vicar General and General Secretary—a position in which he served until his appointment to the Diocese of Green Bay.
Bishop Zubik was consecrated a bishop on April 6, 1997, at Saint Paul Cathedral and was appointed auxiliary bishop of the Diocese of Pittsburgh. Jim Melhus wanted a way to raise awareness and money for the Homeward Animal Shelter, where he works as a dog trainer.
Melhus donated a baseball signed by baseball greats Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle and Ken Hunt at Homewarda€™s annual Wags, Whiskers & Wine event Oct. Maris now stands at seventh on the list, but the three players whoa€™ve hit more than 61 homers in a season a€“ Barry Bonds, McGwire and Sosa a€“ have all been implicated for steroid use. Jim Savageau was Melhusa€™ boss at OK Tire, and he happened to be a friend of Marisa€™ from Shanley High School and was part of the golf tournamenta€™s inner circle. The tournament came to town and, as was always the case in the early days, there was much revelry among the former Yankees and their friends.
Savageau showed up at OK Tire a morning after such revelry and spotted Melhus a fair distance away performing his job as a tire installer. The signatures of Maris and Hunt have been authenticated by a sports memorabilia organization, which is very important to collectors.
Galen Heinle of Big Nicka€™s Sports Cards in West Acres Mall helped the shelter authenticate the ball and said it has great value. Homeward Animal Shelter hopes Marisa€™ popularity can help with its mission of rescuing, sheltering, protecting and finding homes for dogs and cats. ESPN's announcement will come one day after North Dakota State football fans learned the network's "College GameDay" program did not choose Fargo.
The following e-mail was sent to Minnesota State University Moorhead faculty and staff today.
MSUM President Anne Blackhurst has named Doug Peters, Director of Athletics, to serve as Interim Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs.
Blackhurst also announced interim administrative office realignments that will be reviewed during the coming months. Drew Wrigleya€™s public confession of an extramarital affair seemed more like a staged political event than a genuine mea culpa, but what should we expect from a person whose political ambition seems to be outweighed only by his audacity?
North Dakotaa€™s lieutenant governor got caught with his pants down and his answer was not to throw himself on the mercy of the court and say a€?Ia€™m sorry,a€? but to seat his wife next to him and talk about prayer and faith and the couplea€™s pastor. Yes, Drew Wrigley still really wants to be governor a€“ really, really, really wants to be governor a€“ and hea€™s doing what he can do to keep the dream alive.
This little pothole in the road opened last week when a blogger named Jim Fuglie, a former leader of the Democratic-NPL Party in North Dakota, dropped word of Wrigleya€™s messy personal life and a€?indiscretionsa€? in a post predicting state attorney general Wayne Stenehjem would replace Jack Dalrymple as governor. Wrigley responded swiftly by issuing a handful of interviews with select legitimate media, and a sycophant right-wing blogger, in an attempt (in public-relations terminology) to control the message. The lieutenant governora€™s adept handling of the nasty news, and North Dakota mediaa€™s lack of courage in insisting on more specifics or even offering tough commentary, seems to have worked. This limp reaction to Wrigleya€™s confession makes it likely hea€™s feeling confident about his ability to make a run at the Republican nomination and, in deeply red North Dakota, the governorship. See, a real human being with real humility woulda€™ve issued a statement saying, a€?My wife and I are working through this very difficult time together.
Instead, Wrigley essentially held a press conference with his wife at his side and admitted hea€™s still mulling a run for governor.
Ita€™s particularly interesting when you consider the leak about the affair is alleged to have come from Wrigleya€™s own side of the aisle.
While Wrigley steadfastly refuses to give up on his dream of being governor, a run could be particularly nasty on his wife and family. Rumor has it Wrigley was carrying on with a married woman and the affair broke up her marriage. Somebody wearing such an obvious coating of veneer deserves to have it stripped away for the world to see.
Six anglers from Indiana have been cited for taking 676 sunfish and crappies over their limit from Upper Cormorant Lake in Becker County, Minn.
Charges were filed late last week, according to Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Bill Landmark.
If convicted, the anglers could face thousands of dollars in fines and revocation of fishing privileges for three years.
BOSTON -- It took an empty-net goal by Boston University star Jack Eichel to seal North Dakota's fate Thursday night in the Frozen Four. Boston U advanced to the NCAA Division I men's hockey title game with a 5-3 victory over UND, a closer victory than anybody saw coming when the Terriers were leading 4-1 with less than 6 minutes remaining.
But the fact is the frantic finish can't hide the numbers: UND has failed to win a national championship in seven trips to the Frozen Four during coach Dave Hakstol's 11 seasons.
The first is the one most UND fans, and more importantly the school's administration, choose: Hak's doing a great job by getting his team to the national semifinals on a regular basis. The two coaches prior to Hakstol, Gino Gasparini and Dean Blais, won multiple national titles. Hakstol said he was happy about 50 minutes of UND's play, but thought his team didn't manage the puck well in the game's first eight to 10 minutes. He also lamented the lack of bounces his team got through most of the contest, until Troy Stecher used a misplay by Boston goalie Matt O'Connor to score a short-handed goal with 7:50 to cut BU's lead to 4-2. So UND fans are left talk about another one that got away, and how gritty their team was and how the officiating and bounces just didn't go their way. But Hakstol continues to underachieve with a program that is the equivalent of the Boston Red Sox in college hockey.
BOSTON -- North Dakota dropped two ugly games at the National Collegiate Hockey Conference tournament in Minneapolis in mid-March, losing to St. Such chatter was quelled in a big way at the NCAA West Regional in Fargo a couple of weeks ago. Questions for Hakstol and his players following UND's 4-1 victory over Quinnipiac in the regional semifinals naturally centered on "bouncing back" after such an awful showing in the NCHC tournament. As Grand Forks Herald beat writer Brad Schlossman pointed out Wednesday in a discussion about the Frozen Four that will air on KFGO today, Hakstol nibbled around the edges of why UND played so poorly in the NCHC tournament. The narrative has definitely changed as UND readies to play Boston University on Thursday night in the national semifinals.
Hakstol has taken his share of arrows for Frozen Four disappointments -- and much of it is deserved after UND allowed Boston College to score seemingly at will in three straight semifinals matchups from 2006-08 -- but a year ago in Philadelphia was a different story. UND seems to have put talk of the late-season flop and the season-ending injury to Mark MacMillan and everything else behind it.
It will be interesting to see how UND fans react should their team fall short of a national title again. That was the clear talking point of UND's postgame press conference: The page has been turned.
I am solidly on the left side of the political ledger, but took a very cautious approach to the story. The police report indicated a night of drinking, followed by arguing, followed by the throwing of objects and physical contact. If we learned anything from Baesler's situation it is that domestic ugliness infects even the relationships of the supposed high and mighty. We also learned, again, that situations the media try to turn into black-and-white, right-and-wrong, this-is-the-way-it-is arguments rarely are. A peek inside a domestic situation is an uncomfortable look at reality, not a partisan argument.
He'd just watched his very talented offensive team get steamrolled by a much, much better offensive team, 92-75 in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division II tournament. The Knights finished the contest shooting 61 percent from the floor (37 of 61), which is outstanding for any basketball team.
But the most impressive player on the court was Whitehead, a 5-foot-9 scat back of a point guard who dominated both ends of the court against MSUM.
Despite nearly getting run over at the end of the first half, the Dragons found themselves down just six points, 49-43, at halftime. The Knights won the Division II national title in 2011 and returned to the Elite Eight the next season. Bellarmine's coach is Scott Davenport, who served as an assistant under Denny Crum and Rick Pitino at Louisville.
Bellarmine was the subject of a lengthy New York Times article in January, focusing on their remarkable shooting and the practice drills Davenport uses. The mentality of everyone on the floor is, I may have a good shot, but theres always a chance to get a better one for someone else, junior forward George Suggs told the Times. North Dakota State football fans are familiar with the type of stadium needed for a Major League Soccer franchise.
Toyota Stadium is a 20,500-seat open-air venue that is, by today's standards, functional without being outlandish. The stadium and surrounding complex (which includes several practice fields and in total covers 145 acres) were completed in 2005 at the cost of $80 million.
I'm passing along this information because Minnesota is now embroiled in a brewing MLS soccer stadium controversy.
Because the franchise will not be awarded to the owner of the NFL's Minnesota Vikings, Zygi Wilf, the new team cannot play in the nearly $1 billion stadium being built in downtown Minneapolis.
So the owner of the MLS franchise, Bill McGuire, wants a new stadium in downtown Minneapolis.
Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins, is being paid for, in part, by a sales tax in Hennepin County (Minneapolis and western suburbs). The immediate opposition to a soccer stadium is baffling, if for no other reason than this would be the financially least painful facility to build. The new Vikings stadium will cost an estimated $975 million, of which $498 million will be state and city tax dollars. So the state isn't willing to help fund a facility for a major-league soccer team, in a state in which tens of thousands of kids play soccer? Limited photo and video evidence of the illegal killing of Minke whales was initially released to the media by Australian authorities but subsequent attempts to access the full range of evidence gathered have been denied. These patrols will provide a vehicle for law enforcement to defend, conserve and protect critical tuna habitat in Central West Africa from April through to September 2016.
The protests were held in opposition to BPa€™s plans to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight.

Over the last 3 months, Sea Shepherd has provided the authorities with undeniable proof of this fleeta€™s engagement in illegal fishing with their operations violating 11 different International regulations and Chinese law. However, the offer has been turned down by the authorities who have instead decided to undertake a private investigation. The vessel entered the Chinese Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) on March 22, 2016 at 0836 UTC, Southwest of Nansha Qundao (Spratly Island) bordering the Indonesian EEZ. Sea Shepherda€™s Flagship, the Steve Irwin, remains on the tail of the illegal vessel ensuring that its location is relayed to the relevant authorities across the world, including authorities in China.

The coalition is calling upon the President to turn Costa Rica back into a country with a "true Blue agenda,a€? a country its citizens can be proud of, as well as the marine conservation leader that the world expects it to be.
He, along with fellow Dutch nationals, Director of Sea Shepherd Netherlands, Geert Vons, and legal council for Sea Shepherd, LiesbethZegveld, had just finished a presentation on the grindadrA?p to a group of Danish parliamentarians when the incident occurred. If successful, this petition could bring an end to a lengthy battle between Captain Watson and the Costa Rican government, including potential dismissal of the Interpol Red Notice it issued in 2012 requesting his arrest and extradition. For the past three weeks, she has been conducting a research project to assist the shark campaign coordinators in understanding trends and forecasts in relation to the Queensland Shark Control Program. As the threats facing our marine ecosystems grow and become more complex, it is vital we expand the number of tools in our arsenal, form new alliances, and adopt new, innovative multi-pronged approaches to stem the tide of oceanic destruction.
Each year millions of tonnes of plastic litter enter our oceans and waterways injuring and killing more than a million birds and 100 million marine animals (including fish, turtles, whales) through entanglement, suffocation and ingestion.
Additionally, there will be further scientific research, expansion of current tagging programs plus further public education.

They were particularly concerned by the Southern states' disfranchisement of blacks starting with Mississippi's passage of a new constitution in 1890. In fact, at its founding, the NAACP had only one African American on its executive board, Du Bois himself.
In the early 20th century, Jewish newspapers drew parallels between the Black movement out of the South and the Jews' escape from Egypt, pointing out that both Blacks and Jews lived in ghettos, and calling anti-Black riots in the South "pogroms". Storey was a long-time classical liberal and Grover Cleveland Democrat who advocated laissez-faire free markets, the gold standard, and anti-imperialism. In 1913, the NAACP organized opposition to President Woodrow Wilson's introduction of racial segregation into federal government policy, offices, and hiring.
It was influential in winning the right of African Americans to serve as officers in World War I.
Because of disfranchisement, there were no black representatives from the South in Congress.
Southern states had created white-only primaries as another way of barring blacks from the political process. The NAACP's Legal department, headed by Charles Hamilton Houston and Thurgood Marshall, undertook a campaign spanning several decades to bring about the reversal of the "separate but equal" doctrine announced by the Supreme Court's decision in Plessy v.
Board of Education that held state-sponsored segregation of elementary schools was unconstitutional. These newer groups relied on direct action and mass mobilization to advance the rights of African Americans, rather than litigation and legislation. Daisy Bates, president of its Arkansas state chapter, spearheaded the campaign by the Little Rock Nine to integrate the public schools in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Johnson worked hard to persuade Congress to pass a civil rights bill aimed at ending racial discrimination in employment, education and public accommodations, and succeeded in gaining passage in July 1964.
The dismissal of two leading officials further added to the picture of an organization in deep crisis. A controversial figure, Chavis was ousted eighteen months later by the same board that had hired him. Three years later strained finances forced the organization to drastically cut its staff, from 250 in 1992 to just fifty.

Chad Markuson, Associate Athletic Director, will assume additional responsibilities during Petersa€™ interim appointment. It is hard work looking contrite, but you do what you gotta do when the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is the governora€™s mansion. Rumors of Wrigleya€™s wandering eye a€“ as well as other body parts a€“ had been swirling in political circles for some time, but Fuglie was the first to throw them out publicly. There were certain limitations put on the interviews and Wrigley would not address specific details of the affair. Whether or not I run for governor is the last thing on my mind as we work to save our marriage of 17 years.
He also said the affair did not have an effect on his current job, which he will not resign. The hot rumor is that Stenehjem supporters were calling media and bloggers to tip them off on Wrigleya€™s dalliances. If indeed Stenehjema€™s supporters were trying to take him down this early, whata€™s to say they dona€™t have more dirt on the lieutenant governor?
If Wrigley carried on with the other woman for, say, three years a€“ well, thata€™s a lot different than a one-time liaison. If true, the lieutenant governor would be what is known among the commoners as a a€?home-wrecker.a€? Ita€™s quite likely the husband (ex-husband?) of the other woman is quite aggrieved at this turn of affairs. He just wanted us all to know that he didna€™t break any governmental ethical codes and the affair didna€™t affect his job performance, so ita€™s all good. He entered Thursday's postgame press conference in his usual terse and defensive mood, and proceeded to tell the assembled media that he didn't want any questions about perspectives on the season.
North Dakota State football fans, with the resources the school puts into the program and the tradition it has, wouldn't stand for 11 years without a national title. There have been a number of memorable flops in the Frozen Four, fueling the "Fire Hak!" crowd.
Hakstol, in his usual terse manner, quelled such talk by saying his club "turned the page" after the trainwreck in the Twin Cities. Turns out, Schlossman has since learned, that UND's players and coaches were fighting a nasty bug that weekend that drained nearly everybody connected to the team, including strength coach Mark Poolman and team doctor Greg Greek. A club many counted out prior to the regionals is now again viewed as a strong contender for the national title. UND played well in a semifinal against hated Minnesota, only to see the Gophers score with 0.6 seconds left to take a 2-1 victory. Hakstol said it several times and the UND players queried by the media -- Drake Caggiula, Troy Stecher and Tucker Poolman -- repeated it, too. 15 a juicy tidbit picked up by media in Bismarck, Fargo, Grand Forks and every other major city in North Dakota.
She countered with a statement saying "an argument escalated to the point where I was concerned for my safety.
I said on my KFGO program, and wrote in a blog, that we should all just quiet down and let the process play itself out. In an interview with Forum News Service, Baesler stuck by her story that she was just trying to get out of her fiance's home. And, in the end, none of the witnesses provided much clarity other than agreeing nobody saw any of the thrown objects hit Tschosik, the alleged victim.
Perhaps that is a good lesson to remember: Domestic violence isn't the exclusive domain of the poor, the minority population, the uneducated, the hourly workers, the regular people. To read Mike Nowatzki's report for Forum Communications is to be part of that awkward, uncomfortable moment that is part alcohol, part emotion, part fatigue, part violence, part jealousy, part rage and a dozen other things. Whether it was layups from Jake Thelen (12 of 16), 3-pointers from Rusty Troutman (3 of 3) or driving bankshots from the ultra-talented Chris Whitehead (8 of 13), Bellarmine simply had too many weapons for the Dragons. He was shooting 67 percent for the season coming into the contest, and shot 74 percent last year. Whitehead was essentially unguardable with his quickness off the dribble and when he wasn't scoring an easy layup, he was zipping a pass to Thelen or Josh Derksen for an open jump shot. As MSUM's Tyler Vaughan said after the game, "If you give up 49 points in the first half, things aren't going to go well." Yet, the Dragons were still in the game. It was the most victories in a season for an MSUM and the school's first trip to the Elite Eight since moving to Division II in the mid-1990s. He also coach with former Kentucky coach Tubby Smith while Smith was at Virginia Commonwealth.
The Knights are the best shooting team in Division II at 53.4 percent and star post Jake Thelen, a 6-foot-7 senior, shoots 67 percent. They lead the nation with 372 3-pointers and have Division II's best assist-to-turnover ratio.
Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, home of FC Dallas of the MLS, is where the mighty Bison won the last four Football Championship Subdivision national title games.
It doesn't seem an unreasonable request, given the orgy of stadium-building in the Twin Cities the last decade or so. Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk, a DFLer and a huge union supporter who would seemingly love more union construction jobs, has said state money for a soccer stadium will not happen.
If the MLS franchise were to require an 18,000-seat stadium, it could be constructed for -- what?
Much of the rest of the cost of the stadium will be offset by the NFL and naming rights, which will be sold by the Wilfs.

Mary White Ovington, journalist William English Walling and Henry Moskowitz met in New York City in January 1909 and the NAACP was born.[14] Solicitations for support went out to more than 60 prominent Americans, and a meeting date was set for February 12, 1909.
It did not elect a black president until 1975, although executive directors had been African-American.

The NAACP regularly displayed a black flag stating "A Man Was Lynched Yesterday" from the window of its offices in New York to mark each lynching.
The NAACP lost most of the internecine battles with the Communist Party and International Labor Defense over the control of those cases and the strategy to be pursued in that case. Since southern states were dominated by the Democrats, the primaries were the only competitive contests.
Intimidated by the Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service, the Legal and Educational Defense Fund, Inc., became a separate legal entity in 1957, although it was clear that it was to operate in accordance with NAACP policy. He followed that with passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which provided for protection of the franchise, with a role for federal oversight and administrators in places where voter turnout was historically low.
Benjamin Hooks, a lawyer and clergyman, was elected as the NAACP's executive director in 1977, after the retirement of Roy Wilkins. They accused him of using NAACP funds for an out-of-court settlement in a sexual harassment lawsuit.[26] Following the dismissal of Chavis, Myrlie Evers-Williams narrowly defeated NAACP chairperson William Gibson for president in 1995, after Gibson was accused of overspending and mismanagement of the organization's funds.
Large amounts of money are being given to them by large corporations that I have a problem with."[27] Alcorn also said, "I cannot be bought.
Jackson said he strongly supported Lieberman's addition to the Democratic ticket, saying, "When we live our faith, we live under the law. On July 10, 2004, however, Bush's spokesperson said that Bush had declined the invitation to speak to the NAACP because of harsh statements about him by its leaders.[32] In an interview, Bush said, "I would describe my relationship with the current leadership as basically nonexistent. Most notably he boycotted the 2004 funeral services for Coretta Scott King on the grounds that the King children had chosen an anti-gay megachurch.

Melhus said Savageau told him that Mantle was a) extremely inebriated and b) perturbed Maris had already signed on the a€?sweet spota€? of the ball, so Mickey nonchalantly scribbled his signature. As a long time media jackal, I learned long ago to root for great stories and somebody as blindly ambitious and narcissistic as Wrigley shrugging off an extramarital affair to pursue political power is a heckuva tale. Faithful people can forgive a man succumbing to a weakness of the flesh, but a multiple-year affair requires planning and conscientious effort and lying. He's won three regular-season conference titles in his 11 years, and four conference playoff championships. UND continues to be one of the premier college hockey programs in the country, as it was under Gasparini and Blais. Perhaps they'll add how the team was lucky to get this far after losing leader Mark MacMillan to a horrible season-ending injury and how it bounced back so nicely after a lost weekend at the National Collegiate Hockey Conference tournament.

Jewish historian Howard Sachar writes in his book A History of Jews in America of how, "In 1914, Professor Emeritus Joel Spingarn of Columbia University became chairman of the NAACP and recruited for its board such Jewish leaders as Jacob Schiff, Jacob Billikopf, and Rabbi Stephen Wise."[19] Early Jewish-American co-founders included Julius Rosenwald, Lillian Wald, Rabbi Emil G.
