Sexual misconduct

One of the main reasons we cover such a broad range of topics is because the masses are being systematically brainwashed to see what they are being directed to see. You can only solve the problem if you understand the problem; if you do not, you will either never solve it or continue trending on the path of stupidity forever. To become a good investor, you need to see the full picture and not the snippets that the mass media conveniently and almost gleefully is willing to provide.  Mass psychology states that it is imperative to acknowledge the forest while looking at the tree. In other words, emotions drive the markets, and you need to focus on what emotions Mass Media is trying to stir up to spot the next significant trend. With that in mind, we think you might find the following article of interest:

Many stocks are trending upwards while key technical indicators move from the overbought to the oversold ranges. If this took place on the daily charts it could be ignored, but, these developments are taking place in the slow-moving monthly charts, and it suggests that a new trend might be about to take hold. Then you have stocks that trend endlessly in the overbought ranges with no sign of letting up, but the stock continues to trend higher and higher. If this trend takes hold, then a plethora of technical analysts will face the ultimate challenge: “Adapt or die”. Stock market Insanity Trend is Gathering Momentum

Oxfam involved in Sexual misconduct

Oxfam says it is investigating 26 new cases of sexual misconduct which had been reported since a scandal broke earlier this month over its handling of a 2011 case in Haiti.
The British charity’s chief executive Mark Goldring told a parliamentary committee in London that 16 of the cases related to its international operation.

“There are 26 cases that have come forward… They range in time frame from more recent events to long historic events where people did not report them at the time,” Goldring said.

Made public earlier in the day, Oxfam’s 2011 report into the behaviour of aid workers sent to Haiti revealed that three staff had physically threatened a witness in the prostitution investigation.
Oxfam’s 2011 report, compiled in the year after aid workers were deployed to Haiti, revealed that seven staff were accused of using prostitutes at an Oxfam-funded residence.

Four staff were fired for gross misconduct and three others, including then country director Roland Van Hauwermeiren, were allowed to quit. Read more

 

Should they be charged for Sexual misconduct

Oxfam revealed on Tuesday it was investigating 26 new cases of sexual misconduct since the crisis erupted over its handling of a 2011 prostitution scandal in Haiti, which the British charity called a “wake-up call.”

Chief executive Mark Goldring told a parliamentary committee in London that the cases varied in their seriousness, while 16 related to its international operation.

“They range in time frame from more recent events to long historic events where people did not report them at the time,” he said.

Three of Oxfam’s most senior leaders repeatedly apologised for the charity’s handling of an internal investigation into the use of prostitutes by staff in Haiti following the devastating 2010 earthquake.

Caroline Thomson, chair of trustees, said: “It’s right to admit this has been a real wake-up call.”
Oxfam had made public on Monday its 2011 report into the episode, revealing that three staff had physically threatened a witness in the prostitution investigation.

The report, compiled in the year after the workers were deployed to Haiti, found that a total of seven staff were accused of using prostitutes at an Oxfam-funded residence. Read more

More Cases Of Sexual Misconduct

figure skating coach Richard Callaghan, who led Tara Lipinski to the 1998 Olympic gold medal and Todd Eldredge to the 1996 world championship and six national titles, Wednesday was declared “permanently ineligible” by the U.S. Center for SafeSport for “sexual misconduct involving (a) minor.”

The banishment of one of the nation’s most legendary skating coaches comes 12 days after Adam Schmidt, 34, a former skating student of Callaghan’s, filed a lawsuit in San Diego alleging Callaghan repeatedly sexually abused him from 1999 to 2001, beginning when Schmidt was 14 years old. The lawsuit also names U.S. Figure Skating, the sport’s national governing body, and Onyx Ice Arena in Detroit, where Callaghan taught Schmidt.

John Manly, Schmidt’s attorney, criticized USFS for not acting sooner.

“This should have been done in the 90s when USFS first knew,” Manly said in a text message to USA TODAY Sports. “It’s good news but small comfort to those Callaghan hurt. Clearly this move is in response to the horrible press USFS received in response to Adam Schmidt’s filing. You shouldn’t have to file a lawsuit to protect kids from child molesters in Olympic sports.” Full Story
