Gambhir demands actions against those who attacked Muslim man

first_imgNew Delhi: Cricketer-turned-politician and the BJP’s East Delhi MP Gautam Gambhir on Monday condemned the attack on a Muslim man in Haryana’s Gurugram and demanded exemplary action against the culprits. “In Gurugram Muslim man told to remove skull cap, chant Jai Shri Ram. It is deplorable. Exemplary action needed by Gurugram authorities. We are a secular nation where where Javed Akhtar writes ‘o palan hare, nirgun aur nyare’ and Rakeysh On Mehra gave us the song ‘arziyaan’ in Delhi 6,” Gambhir said in a tweet. His remarks came after a video went viral in which a Muslim man was purportedly seen in Gurugram being asked to remove his skull cap and to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram:. The Gurugram Police has registered a case. The police has also taken the CCTV footage to identify the culprits. No one has been arrested yet.last_img read more

News media advocacy group criticizes Canada Post flyer distribution plans

first_imgOTTAWA — An advocacy group representing print and digital news media in Canada is criticizing Canada Post plans to expand its commercial flyer distribution service.News Media Canada says Canada Post’s move to distribute packaged commercial flyers would “seriously harm” a primary revenue source for most newspapers. The Canada Post strategy relies on an “unfair advantage,” namely the ability to access mail boxes in apartments and condos, the advocacy group says.The group is asking the government to restrict Canada Post from using a tool given to them by the government to directly compete with local newspapers.Newspapers have traditionally been the main delivery source for flyers that advertise products for local businesses, and the practice is a major revenue source for many media outlets.News Media Canada is arguing the move by the Crown corporation runs counter to the recent direction the government has taken in providing support for news media.“At a time when our industry is knee-deep in transition, this deliberate undercutting of one of newspapers’ foundational revenue pillars by a federal Crown Corporation is very troubling,” said John Hinds, head of News Media Canada.The Liberal government has promised almost $600 million in tax credits and incentives for some media organizations over the next five years.Outlets that meet certain qualifications will receive a 25 per cent tax credit on salaries for some newsroom employees, while media organizations will also be able to apply for charity-like status.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

AuroraCanniMed takeover battle goes before provincial regulators

first_imgTORONTO – An acrimonious takeover battle between two Canadian marijuana companies was in the regulatory spotlight Wednesday at a joint hearing involving the Saskatchewan and Ontario securities commissions.Lawyers for both provincial regulators argued that Aurora Cannabis’ request to lessen the consideration period for its all-stock offer be rejected but that CanniMed Therapeutics shareholders’ rights plan to push back against its suitor be removed.Kate McGrann, a lawyer representing staff at both the Ontario Securities Commission and the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan, also told commissioners at the joint hearing that Aurora (TSX:ACB) should be able to buy up to five per cent of CanniMed’s outstanding shares on the open market.Wednesday’s hearing in Toronto kicking off the joint proceedings comes roughly one month after Aurora launched an all-stock, unsolicited bid to acquire Saskatoon-based CanniMed, one of the first licensed marijuana producers in Canada, after both companies called on regulators to intervene.CanniMed has said that Aurora’s offer is inferior to its own proposed acquisition of the Tragically Hip-backed Newstrike Resources (TSXV:HIP), and launched a shareholders’ rights plan to push back.CanniMed has alleged that Edmonton-based Aurora worked jointly with some of its shareholders and Aurora has disputed this, while launching a dissident circular in a bid to thwart the Newstrike acquisition.last_img read more

Rhodia deal boost for Madagascar rare earths project

first_imgRhodia, a member of the Solvay Group, and Tantalus Rare Earths have announced the signing of a letter of intent relating to technical co-operation for the development of an optimal process for generating rare earth concentrates from the large near surface Tantalus rare earth project in Madagascar and the exclusive supply of these rare earth products to Rhodia. The Tantalus project is emerging as one of the largest clay hosted rare earth resources outside of China, with 130 Mt of rare earth bearing clays already identified from a small portion of the project area on the Ampasindava Peninsula in north-western Madagascar.Analysis of the Tantalus material has shown that approximately 20% of the rare earths are in the valuable “heavy” category. A definitive technical co-operation agreement and offtake agreement for up to 15,000 t/y of rare earth products from Tantalus will follow the letter of intent. Tantalus CEO Mr David Rigoll said: “After discussions with all of the major participants in the rare earths processing and supply sector, we are pleased to have agreed terms with the world’s number one producer of rare earth products Rhodia as our exclusive technical and marketing partner to assist in fast-tracking our Tantalus project to commercial production.” Fréderic Carencotte, Industrial Director for Rhodia Rare Earth Systems, added: “This agreement represents a further step in our sourcing diversification strategy. The composition and nature of this deposit, i.e. ionic clays, seems very promising for reliable and competitive access to heavy rare earths.”last_img read more

ACLU Sues Trump Administration over Decision to Exclude Most AsylumSeekers Fleeing Domestic

first_img Share Bob Daemmrich for The Texas TribuneU.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks about carrying out President Donald Trump’s immigration priorities at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Texas in Austin on Friday, Oct. 20, 2017.The American Civil Liberties Union has launched another sweeping challenge to President Donald Trump’s administration, this time in a federal lawsuit over the administration’s “gutting of asylum protections for immigrants fleeing domestic violence and gang brutality.”The case, filed Tuesday in federal court in Washington, D.C., takes aim at a June 11 decision from U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions stating that, in general, victims of gang violence and domestic abuse do not qualify for asylum in the United States.“The mere fact that a country may have problems effectively policing certain crimes — such as domestic violence or gang violence — or that certain populations are more likely to be victims of crime, cannot itself establish an asylum claim,” Sessions wrote. Immigration advocates were quick to condemn the decision, saying it upends decades of precedent. The decision is part of the Trump administration’s efforts to systematically narrow the path to refuge in the United States, experts say.Immigration attorneys working with migrants in detention facilities in Texas and across the country say the decision has had major impacts on asylum-seekers in the months since it was handed down.Katy Murdza, who works with asylum-seekers in Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention through the Dilley Pro Bono Project, told The Texas Tribune last month that far more of her clients are being denied at the first stage of the asylum process, the “credible fear” interview.In general, asylum-seekers must demonstrate that they face persecution in their home countries due to “race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.” Before Sessions’ decision, that generally included victims of gang violence or domestic abuse.In the new lawsuit, the ACLU claims that Sessions’ decision “unlawfully [changes] the credible fear standard,” making it more difficult for asylum-seekers to state their claims. Migrants who are apprehended near the U.S.-Mexico border may be placed into what’s called the “expedited removal” process, allowing immigration officials to deport them more quickly. Migrants can delay or avoid deportation by demonstrating a “credible fear” of returning to their home countries, the first step toward attaining asylum in the United States.The ACLU claims the new standards do not give migrants sufficient opportunity to argue their case and argues asylum protections have historically included “women fleeing gender-based persecution.”“This is a naked attempt by the Trump administration to eviscerate our country’s asylum protections,” said Jennifer Chang Newell, a managing attorney with the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project. “It’s clear the administration’s goal is to deny and deport as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.”“Our nation’s immigration laws provide for asylum to be granted to individuals who have been persecuted, or who have a well-founded fear of persecution, on account of their membership in a ‘particular social group,’ but most victims of personal crimes do not fit this definition — no matter how vile and reprehensible the crime perpetrated against them,” a Justice Department spokesperson said in an emailed statement Tuesday night. “The Department of Justice remains committed to reducing violence against women and enforcing laws against domestic violence, both in the United States and around the world.”last_img read more

Texas Rep Will Hurd Houses Only Black Republican Wont Seek Reelection In

first_imgEric Gay/APRep. Will Hurd, R-Texas, announced Thursday he won’t run for reelection in 2020 after only narrowly surviving last fall in a district that voted for Hillary Clinton.Texas Rep. Will Hurd, the lone black Republican in the House, announced Thursday evening he won’t run for reelection in 2020.Hurd’s surprise decision is not only a setback for a party in need of diversity, but it also means there will be one less rare member of the GOP caucus who’s willing to speak out against President Trump. The 41-year-old’s exit makes it tougher for Republicans to hold onto his swing district near year and is also an ominous sign for his party’s chances of winning back the House as retirements continue to mount.I have made the decision to not seek reelection for the 23rd Congressional District of Texas in order to pursue opportunities outside the halls of Congress to solve problems at the nexus between technology and national security. https://t.co/GeZ4Hh264f— Rep. Will Hurd (@HurdOnTheHill) August 2, 2019“I left a job I loved in the CIA as an undercover officer to meet what I believed to be a need for new leadership in Congress on intelligence and national security matters,” Hurd said in a statement. “I wanted to help the Intelligence Community in a different way by bringing my knowledge and experience to Congress. I’m leaving the House of Representatives to help our country in a different way. I want to use my knowledge and experience to focus on these generational challenges in new ways. It was never my intention to stay in Congress forever, but I will stay involved in politics to grow a Republican Party that looks like America.”First elected to Congress in 2014, Hurd represents a perpetual swing district that is one of the largest in the country, stretching from San Antonio to just outside El Paso and taking in over 800 miles of the Southern border. Hurd is also the last Republican to represent a district along the U.S.-Mexico border.But Hurd has opposed Trump’s push for a border wall, saying that “building a 30-foot-wall from sea to shining sea is the most expensive and least efficient way to do border security.” Hurd also pushed for a permanent fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.Hurd has taken vocal stances against Trump in other instances, too. Last year in a New York Times op-ed, Hurd — who had been an undercover CIA officer for almost 10 years before being elected to Congress — asserted that Trump was being manipulated by Russian President Vladimir Putin.“The president’s failure to defend the United States intelligence community’s unanimous conclusions of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and condemn Russian covert counterinfluence campaigns and his standing idle on the world stage while a Russian dictator spouted lies confused many but should concern all Americans,” Hurd wrote. “By playing into Vladimir Putin’s hands, the leader of the free world actively participated in a Russian disinformation campaign that legitimized Russian denial and weakened the credibility of the United States to both our friends and foes abroad.”Hurd was also one of just four House Republicans who voted for a resolution to condemn Trump’s racist tweets last month attacking four freshmen Democratic women of color. His positions and willingness to speak out against Trump made sense, given the political and demographic makeup of his district. The 23rd District is almost 70% Latino, and Hillary Clinton won it by about 3.5 percentage points in 2016. Last year’s midterm elections left Hurd as one of just three House Republicans to sit in a district carried by Clinton, not Trump.But Hurd only barely survived in 2018 to win reelection by just 926 votes over Democrat Gina Ortiz Jones, an Air Force veteran who had already announced she was seeking a rematch in 2020. But without Hurd, who was seen by Republicans and Democrats alike as an unusually strong GOP incumbent, the Cook Political Report moved their race racing for this seat from Toss Up to Lean Democratic.Hurd’s shocking decision also makes him the ninth Republican so far this cycle — and sixth in just over the past week — to announce his retirement, a number that is expected to grow especially as members head home for August recess. It’s far from surprising to see retirements grow for the minority party in the wake of losing the House. But the high number already coupled with decisions from some surprising lawmakers in addition to Hurd — such as Indiana Rep. Susan Brooks, who also serves as the National Republican Congressional Committee’s 2020 recruitment chair — signals that many within the GOP caucus also likely doubt Republicans can win back the House next November, where they need either 18 or 19 seats, depending on the outcome of a re-do election in North Carolina next month.Copyright 2019 NPR.

NMA Hosts Interactive Summit on AfricanAmerican Health Issues

first_imgHealth disparities among gender and races, and a review of the inaugural summit’s National Action Plan was the agenda for the National Medical Association (NMA) second Summit on African-American Health. The event was held April 17 at the Washington Hilton Hotel in D.C.NMA, the nation’s largest organization of African-American physicians, and about 20 people from diverse organizations convened to address working together in raising awareness about access to healthcare and health inequalities among the African-American population.”If we in healthcare help begin to consider and discuss how those sectors of health inequalities occur and are disproportionately affecting persons of our community, we would much likely get a better quality of outcomes and would decrease the mortality rate in our community,” said Rahn Kennedy Bailey, chair of the Summit on African-American Health and 113th president of the NMA. Bailey said there is a difference in the rate of access to health care amongst the different minority populations. African-American women and men between the age range of 25 and 75 in 2006 had the largest death rate from heart disease and stroke compared to other men and women in the same age range from other ethnic populations. From 2005 to 2008, the people with the largest prevalence of hypertension age 65 were African American. The infants of African-American women had death rates twice as large as infants of White Americans in 2006.According to Bailey these statistics are inexcusable, especially as the United States has more healthcare opportunities than other countries. “The Affordable Care Act has tremendous opportunity to address issues of disparities in our community,” said Bailey to the AFRO. “Our goal would be to get everybody insured, especially in states where there is a large Medicaid population, like the South and often in the African-American communities who may be indigent or have a job that does not provide insurance.”During the summit, Michael LeNoir, summit co-chair, said, “Our purpose is not only to get a message out, our purpose is to engage our partners to give life to what they are doing.”Summit program director Sharon Allison-Ottey echoed LeNoir’s comment and agreed that collaboration between organizations sharing the same mission and values need to come together to expand the messaging pipeline.When Allison-Ottey asked how organizations and advocacy groups can collaborate to educate the community, Reginald Ware, CEO of Blackdoctor.org, suggested that his organization could break the research down into a basic educational series. This breakdown would be shared on the Blackdoctor.org website.Ronae Neal, 20, a Biology major student from Prince George’s Community College representing the United Black Fund, said the summit provided an immense amount of information on health issues in the African-American community. “I want to grow into the health industry, so I thought this would be great for me to come and hear about all the ideas [the good things and bad things] that the group has and the way that the health system can be improved,” she said.A working group session was later formed to engage the attendees in identifying and defining the strategies and tactics for the summit’s National Action Plan objectives that were assembled last year.last_img read more

New Report Shows Rising Gas Prices Work Schedules Cramp Car Travel

first_imgBy Stacy M. Brown, NNPA Newswire Correspondent, @StacyBrownMediaSoon, the school year will be in the rear-view mirror, and families across the nation will hit the road for a good old-fashioned summer road trip—but, maybe not as many.Nearly half of American drivers say that rising gas prices are stopping them from heading out on a road trip this summer, according to results of a motorist study released by CarInsurance.com.Soon, the school year will be in the rear-view mirror, and families across the nation will hit the road for a good old-fashioned summer road trip. (Photo: iStockphoto / NNPA)To kick off the season, CarInsurance.com surveyed 1,000 drivers to find out how they feel when behind the wheel, what their family road trip experiences are like, what they do to cope with traffic and what types of mishaps they’ve had due to poor road conditions.CarInsurance.com found that 44 percent of people said that gas prices are preventing them from taking the family on a road trip. That’s an increase from 36 percent last year.Another reason drivers may skip a summer road trip is that they can’t take time off from work. Nearly one-third of respondents pointed to not being able to take off time, according to the survey.The research also revealed that the vast majority of people enjoy family road trips, despite some respondents mentioning that a family member had a meltdown before the adventure was underway.More than 90 percent say they’ve taken a family road trip over the past five years.Only 17 percent of respondents claim to prefer air travel over road trips.Most of those who favor the road say those trips are just more enjoyable than heading to an airport.While on the road, 44 percent of drivers surveyed say they feel contentment when driving. A mere 10 percent feel either stressed or “rage-y.”However, one noted headache associated with road trips is traffic.Approximately 11 percent called people who they weren’t particularly close to because they were bored.The survey also found that poor road conditions also caused 20 percent of drivers to have a one-car accident; 19 percent report getting into an accident with another car.To view the full report and methodology visit, https://www.carinsurance.com/Articles/2019-family-road-trip-reportlast_img read more

Researchers find antioxidants can dispel static electricity

first_imgCredit: Chris Darling via Wikipedia. More information: Control of Surface Charges by Radicals as a Principle of Antistatic Polymers Protecting Electronic Circuitry, Science 20 September 2013: Vol. 341 no. 6152 pp. 1368-1371 DOI: 10.1126/science.1241326AbstractEven minute quantities of electric charge accumulating on polymer surfaces can cause shocks, explosions, and multibillion-dollar losses to electronic circuitry. This paper demonstrates that to remove static electricity, it is not at all necessary to “target” the charges themselves. Instead, the way to discharge a polymer is to remove radicals from its surface. These radicals colocalize with and stabilize the charges; when they are scavenged, the surfaces discharge rapidly. This radical-charge interplay allows for controlling static electricity by doping common polymers with small amounts of radical-scavenging molecules, including the familiar vitamin E. The effectiveness of this approach is demonstrated by rendering common polymers dust-mitigating and also by using them as coatings that prevent the failure of electronic circuitry. Despite centuries of observation and work, scientists don’t really understand how static electricity works, which is a problem because our evolution has led us to a heavy reliance on electronic devices—one tiny spark can render them useless. Sparks can also set off explosions when they occur around gasses and flammable liquids, thus, research continues to find a way to stop static electricity from building up, or from being released in destructive sparks. In this new effort, the research team from Northwestern appears to have found a way to allow polymers to discharge harmlessly using nothing but antioxidant coatings.Scientists don’t really understand how it is that friction causes static electricity to build up, but one thing is clear, most have been overlooking the relationship between charge buildup and free radicals that also exist on a surface. To learn more, the researchers caused static to build up on several types of polymers then took a closer look using atomic force microscopy (a type of microscopy that can map the location of molecules). In so doing, they noticed that static charge builds up in clumps, and it’s the clumps that eventually provide a channel for the release of the charge. More importantly, they also noticed that the clumps also had free radicals mixed in with them—a phenomenon that made the researchers wonder if simply applying an antioxidant might cause the release of both the free radicals and the charge in a slow safe manner.To find out they created several batches of coatings with vitamin E and other antioxidants as a base and applied them to several types of polymers then applied a charge in two different ways: directly through contact with another material, or indirectly using an electrostatic charge. They found the coatings they developed worked to dispel static electricity buildup no matter how it got there—and were able to witness their success as the polymers no longer allowed dust to collect on their surfaces.The research team has applied for a patent on their coatings, but if their findings can be replicated by other scientists, it will mean the end of run-around solutions to static buildup and the damage that it can cause. Journal information: Science Northwestern research team turns theory of static electricity on its head (Phys.org) —A team of researchers at Northwestern University has found that applying antioxidants such as vitamin E to polymers can cause static charge buildup to disperse without an associated shock. In their paper published in the journal Science, the researchers describe their study of static electricity and how they found a previously unknown relationship between charges and free radicals.center_img Explore further Citation: Researchers find antioxidants can dispel static electricity (2013, September 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-09-antioxidants-dispel-static-electricity.html © 2013 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.

Lorraine McCune a language researcher at Rutgers University in New Brunswick New Jersey analyzes human infants’ grunts and coos to understand the acquisition of language From infancy to adulthood chimpanzees come to use grunts for communication similar to the way humans learn to communicate through grunts like “mm” or “mm-hmm” as they grow Chimpanzees’ calls are more stereotyped and less complicated than human language but McCune hopes that comparing chimpanzee infants’ sounds with those of human infants may help reveal what’s unique about human infants’ sounds “We don’t know how acoustically similar a chimpanzee infant’s grunt would be to a human infant’s grunt” McCune says “If [Plooij] has all the vocalizations and the field notes that say what was happening at the time it would be much easier for me to see how those particular grunts related to what I find in human infants” The data now reside in Cornell University’s Macaulay Library and the Dryad Digital Repository another online resourceApplying for college can be stressful for any student but Rosa Sanchez says her immigration status has made it worse As an undocumented immigrant brought to the United States as a child Sanchez has been protected from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program or DACA which faces an uncertain future amid the Trump Administration’s pledges to wind it down "I saw my classmates and they were really excited" the 18-year-old tells TIME "I felt like something was being taken away from me" DACA has shielded some 700000 undocumented immigrants allowing them to attend school and take jobs but DACA recipients are not eligible for federal student aid and their access to state- and college-based aid varies Despite being a leader in her California high school and one of the top students in her class Sanchez struggled to grapple with the idea that she may not be able to attend school because she could not afford it "I felt really hopeless and sometimes I really wanted to give up" Last week Sanchez found out she is one of 1200 students who will gain a financial boost from TheDreamUs the nations largest scholarship program for so-called Dreamers a group that includes recipients of DACA and temporary protected status a program designed for refugees TheDreamUs was launched to fulfill what the leaders thought would be a temporary need after DACA was established under the Obama Administration many believed Congress was making real progress toward immigration reform But four years later Dreamers are still in limbo leaving TheDreamUs to continue providing scholarships helping nearly 3000 during the current academic year This spring 400 of the students they awarded in 2014 will be completing their college education The past few months have brought challenges to the population of immigrants known as Dreamers Last September the Trump Administration announced that DACA would be ending and gave Congress until March 5 to come up with a long-term solution But in the time since lawmakers have not passed any legislation that would offer them permanent protections Ongoing court battles have offered some reprieve decisions early this year have allowed DACA recipients whose documents have expired to renew which was not allowed under the Trump Administration’s decision to end the program And last week a federal judge ruled that if the government could not adequately explain why the program was ended in 90 days those who have not been able to apply may be able to access the program That could include some 23000 young people the Center for American Progress estimates turned 15-years-old after Sept 5 2017 Gaby Pacheco who serves as TheDreamUss director of advocacy development and communications says that after September the organization braced for a drop in applications "We were thinking oh this is really whats going to deter people from going to school" she says "Theyre probably going to use the last two years that they have to work and save money Theyre not going to even want to go to college" Instead she says a record number of students applied for their tuition scholarships this year and as a result around 1200 students will be awarded up to $29000 to help them obtain a Bachelors Degree or $14500 if theyre seeking their associate’s degree at one of TheDreamUss 76 partner schools Nearly 200 students who live in states where they face unique challenges in getting an education states where they would have to pay out-of-state tuition or are barred from attending public schools will receive up at $80000 to help them cover tuition fees housing and food through the organization’s Opportunity Scholars program says Pacheco "In the US right now I think one of the safest places for an undocumented student is on a college campus" she says Aside from the scholarship TheDreamUs program also works to build cohorts of students on their 76 partner campuses that can support each other throughout their college experiences But Pacheco says "that means when things are not necessarily going well for one of them they all kind of feel it" The Trump Administrations approach to immigration generally and DACA specifically have tested leaders at colleges and universities across the country Losing DACA protection puts a student at risk for deportation but it also means that student is unable to work putting their financial stability in jeopardy Recently it has become more difficult for students with DACA to afford college in some areas In April the Arizona Supreme Court issued a ruling that bars public schools from offering DACA recipients in-state tuition For students at Arizona State University and Maricopa Community College that means their tuition could nearly triple Students from mixed-status families are also dealing with the prospect of their relatives facing deportation which could contribute to anxiety "What weve tried to do is make it clear to our students that we will try to do everything we can within the law to support them in any way we can" says James Milliken the Chancellor of the City University of New York a TheDreamUs partner which has one of the countrys largest university-based immigration counseling programs which is available to students and non-students Some colleges have been trying to stave off the impact of the political climate Before the president was even inaugurated many colleges came out and declared themselves "sanctuary campuses" meaning they would limit their cooperation with immigration enforcement Around 700 college and university presidents signed on to a statement led by Pomona College urging lawmakers to uphold and expand DACA last fall In December of 2017 more than two dozen college leaders launched the Presidents Alliance for Higher Education and Immigration to call for protections for Dreamers and solutions for other immigration-related issues on campus Milliken estimates that there are "thousands" of undocumented students at CUNY right now though he says he does not have exact numbers because the school does not ask applicants about their citizenship Right now about 720 TheDreamUs scholars attend CUNY schools and over 200 of this years scholars have been accepted he says "These are talented ambitious hard-working students" says Milliken "They are the kind of people that we would want to have get an education and contribute to our communities and support their families and pursue their dreams" Liam Kande 30 is another one of this years TheDreamUS scholars In high school he says he was eager to attend college and even took some pre-college courses during his junior year But when he went to fill out a federal student aid form he discovered that he was undocumented Learning that he says was discouraging " I just thought OK I guess Im just going to have to work" he tells TIME So he did and eventually he found his passion and taught himself how to code "Now its my turn to live the dream that I thought I was never going to get again" he says of the opportunity to attend CUNY "I feel like Im not afraid anymore" Sanchez is also looking ahead to the future Like students across the country she will spend May 1 making her final decision about where shell attend school and start working toward becoming a neurosurgeon It should be an exciting time and yet the realities of her life are still weighing on her as she prepares to pen the speech she will deliver to her senior class on graduation day "Im a DACA student and Im really afraid of what people might think of me if I go up to them at the stadium and say hey this is me Im your valedictorian" she says "What are they going to think you know" Write to Maya Rhodan at mayarhodan@timecom Tune in above to follow along.
