El Gobernador Wolf da a conocer su declaración en respuesta a la propagación de información falsa y ataques a la comunidad LGBTQ

first_img Español,  Non-discrimination,  Press Release En el día de la fecha, el Gobernador Tom Wolf dio a conocer la siguiente declaración en respuesta a la última propagación de odio e información falsa por parte del Representante Russ Diamond:“Abominable, irrespetuoso, peligroso. No hay palabras que describan adecuadamente mi desdén por las payasadas que el Representante Diamond desplegó en su última misiva.“El comunicado de prensa del Representante Diamond no es más que un ataque apenas velado contra la comunidad LGBTQ y la Secretaria de Salud del Estado la Dra. Rachel Levine, una mujer transgénero y una líder respetada a nivel nacional en salud pública, cuya valentía y firmeza frente a los constantes ataques es loable.“Prácticamente ninguna persona pensante cuestiona al uso de las máscaras como un medio efectivo para detener la propagación de la COVID. Quienes ostentan con orgullo que no usan máscaras, como el Representante Diamond, no muestran su libertad, sino más bien su ignorancia y falta de respeto hacia ellos mismos, sus familias, vecinos y comunidades cuando no usan una máscara, y probablemente propaguen más este virus peligroso.“Equiparar cualquier falta de respeto hacia aquellos que no usan máscaras a las décadas de falta de respeto, amenazas y violencia contra nuestra comunidad LGBTQ va mucho más allá de las características distintivas de una sociedad decente. Que estas acciones provengan de un legislador elegido para representar de manera justa a todos sus electores es simplemente imperdonable.“Hago un llamamiento al liderazgo de los Republicanos de la Cámara de Representantes para que presente una resolución que censure al Representante de inmediato. Necesitamos que los Republicanos dejen de difundir información errónea al público en general, y necesitamos imperiosamente que sean más responsables y más receptivos a la salud y al bienestar de todos los residentes de Pennsylvania. Este comportamiento peligroso e imprudente no es bienvenido en Pennsylvania.”View this information in English.

The Name Game: 6 Different Ways of Changing Your Name After Marriage.

first_img Share 108 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! Share LifestyleRelationships The Name Game: 6 Different Ways of Changing Your Name After Marriage. by: – June 30, 2011center_img by SavvySugarAlthough marrying your true love is a romantic and happy occasion, you’ll have a lot of paperwork to catch up on after the big event. And if you’re thinking about changing your maiden name to celebrate your new change of status, there are a lot of factors you need to think about before making the switch. For example, what are you going to change your name to? Here are some examples of the choices you can pick from:Not changing your name. This is the easiest choice, because you don’t have to file a name change. It’s socially acceptable in modern societies to stick with your maiden name, and in some countries such as China, it has long been a common practice for women to keep their last names after marriage. This option works best for women who think the act of taking on the last name of their husbands is unfair, or if the change of last names will result in a less than pleasant sounding combination. Other reasons why women might want to stick to their birth surnames include sentimentality and preference. A lot of women also keep their last names not to hurt career prospects because they either have built a brand around their last name, or their name is already well known in their industry. In fact, our friends at LearnVest tallied the true cost of a name change, which is a whopping $500,000. The figure is based on a Netherlands study, which showed that women who keep maiden names earn $1,172 more per month.Dropping your maiden name. Taking on your husband’s name is a common tradition and many women see it as a way to embrace their marriage. Another reason for taking on your husbands name is just to lessen the confusion from others, especially when it comes to your children. Or it can also be that your first name sounds better with his last name, and you’ve been wanting to drop the embarrassing birth name combination for years now.Put a hyphen in it. Some might think the hyphen combination is the best of both worlds — you get to keep your last name and stick to tradition by adding on your husband’s name. Some issues with that is, depending on the length of the last names, your new name might end up being too long and confusing, and your last name might sound too similar to his last name soA mashup. If none of the previous options sound appealing, you can go the more unique route and mash up both of your names. To have a true mashup, you’ll have to take part of his name and part of your last name and line them up next to each other. In other words, you can’t just take random letters and insert them wherever you like. One warning with this is, it might be a hit or miss, the end result may sound refreshingly unique or just bizarre.Creating a new name. If you decide you want to randomly mix up the letters or parts of your last names together, you’ll be creating a new last name. Take one or a few letters from your name and play around with it until you like what it sounds like.Having him take up your name. Didn’t you hear Beyoncé say that girls run the world? This is an option that few men rarely take. The reasons for them doing it might include defying tradition, proclaiming their love, or maybe just the simple fact that your last name sounds better than his.Figuring out what name to take can be hard, and the process of changing your name after marriage will be even more taxing. With so many options to pick from, I’m wondering what type of name change appeals the most to you — what name will you stick with after you marry? Share Tweetlast_img read more

The start of a new chapter and ready to give it my all! Thank you” Ikeme tweeted.

We are waiting to hear from him,” observed the NFF source to THISDAY yesterday evening.Ikeme became Nigeria’s number one man between the sticks following Vincent Enyeama’s unceremonious departure from the Super Eagles mid 2015.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
