Rabat – The Justice and Development Party and the Party of Progress and Socialism will join forces to face the national elections scheduled for October 7th, according to a report by Le360, a Moroccan news source.The two parties’ leaders, Abdelillah Benkirane of the PJD and Nabil Benabdallah of the PPS, will hold a joint meeting on Saturday, April 16 at the PJD headquarters Rabat, to consolidate the foundations of this alliance.“This is not to engage, in the moment, in the development of a common agenda, but to establish a cooperation which would give priority to an alliance already operational under the current government,” said Wednesday in Le360, Tej Karim, a member of the political bureau of the PPS. In addition to teaming up for the legislative elections in October, the two parties will discuss the future of government’s priorities during the last six months of Abdelilah’s term in the highest elected public office in the country.Benabdallah, who is also the minister of housing for Morocco, recently revealed his preference for an alliance with the PJD, saying his party had made the “right choice to integrate with the current coalition government,” at the last session of the Central Committee of the PPS.

Former OSU tight end Nick Vannett (81) celebrates after one of his 2 1st-half touchdowns during a game against Rutgers on Oct. 18 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Lantern File photoOhio State continued its dominance of the 2016 NFL draft, as tight end Nick Vannett became the 10th Buckeye to be selected. Overall, Vannett is the 94th player picked, after his name was called by the Seahawks.This selection sets a new record, as the Buckeyes are the first program to have 10 selections in the opening trio of rounds of the draft.The Westerville, Ohio, native was used sparingly in the OSU offense throughout his tenure, producing 55 receptions for 585 yards and six touchdowns. After redshirting his freshman year, Vannett played throughout his remaining four years, totaling 53 games played.Although the production numbers were low compared to the rest of the offensive starters for OSU, many NFL scouts valued the 6-foot-6, 260-pound tight end for his athleticism.During the 2014 championship run for the Scarlet and Gray, Vannett enjoyed his highest level of production, hauling in five touchdowns, as well as appearing in a career-high 15 games.It is worth noting that the predecessor to Vannett, former OSU tight end Jeff Heuerman, produced similar numbers (52 receptions, 792 yards, seven touchdowns) to those of Vannett and was selected by the Denver Broncos last year in the third round.Although his athleticism gives Vannett immense upside, there has been some concern over how effective he can be as a blocker, a skill tight ends in the spread offense aren’t called upon regularly to employ. With his large frame and proven strength for the position, the Seahawks will focus on developing Vannett as an establish blocker, while also benefiting from his versatility as a pass-catcher. With Jimmy Graham the primary tight end in Seattle, it seems as though it will take time before Vannett sees consistent playing time.
“Your definition of an adult is far away from the legal definition, one of your victims was just days away from his 14th birthday,” he added.“I watched you in this case, I saw no tears in your eyes. You are a disgrace as a mother and I do not hesitate to say that.”Prosecuting, Kim Peston described how the defendant had treated her home like a “party house”, where the consumption of alcohol and cannabis was freely permitted in an “easy environment”.She told the court how Tompkins had first abused two boys in February last year, adding that she had become “suggestive” and performed a “striptease” for them in her living room.The court also heard how she had attempted to “cajole” two other young boys into having sexual intercourse with her on another occasion, and had used Facebook in an attempt to pressure another into engaging sexual activity. Listening as impact statements from her victims were read to Judge Sheridan, Tompkins was seen shaking her head and rolling her eyes as the details of her crimes were laid bare.Mitigating, Peter De Feu said the “stay-at-home” mother had become lonely following the breakdown of her marriage, adding that her circumstances had created the “perfect storm” from which her crimes had manifested. “To your own children in your drunken state you were a dreadful mother, you sexually abused children while your own two youngest children were in the house.”Judge Sheridan said that Tompkins had flirted with her victims in a “predatory and highly sexualised way”, adding that her actions were “outrageous” and had a “devastating” impact on their lives. Commenting, a spokesman for the NSPCC described Tompkins as a “serial sexual predator” who “manipulated” her victims, adding that she should receive rehabilitory treatment whilst in prison to prevent her from reoffending following her release.She was jailed for seven years, placed on the Sex Offender Registry, and banned from having any contact with underage children for life. Appearing for sentencing via video link from prison, the court heard how Tompkins would invite teenagers to drink alcohol and smoke cannabis in her home before engaging in “stripteases” and sex acts – some of which were performed whilst her youngest children were at home.Passing sentence at Aylesbury Crown Court, Judge Sheridan said: “You pleaded guilty to a most dreadful catalogue of sexual offending against young boys.“You ran an open house and for that, you should read you ran a home of abuse with you as the abuser – there’s no point in ducking it, no matter how drunk you were.“You were prepared to abuse each of the boys for your own sexual gratification, you simply had a sexual drive that knew no ends. Nothing was enough. Amanda Tompkins, 39 who had sex with underage boys Credit:SWNS Putting it bluntly, madam, you are sex mad. A married mother-of-three who had sex with three underage boys has been branded a “dreadful mother” by a judge, a court heard yesterday.Sentencing Amanda Tompkins to seven years imprisonment, Judge Francis Sheridan told the 39-year-old: “putting it bluntly, madam, you are sex mad.”“As simple as that – anything goes, doesn’t matter the age, doesn’t matter what stage of sobriety you were in.”Tompkins, of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, was found guilty of 10 counts of physical and sexual abuse with six boys at her home whilst they were aged between 13 and 15 years old.After engaging in sexual intercourse and oral sex with the boys, Tompkins, who was described as being a “highly sexual woman without boundaries”, told one of them she was pregnant with his child and needed to have an abortion.

The life of a frequent flier is not an easy one. In exchange for occasional first-class upgrades, on-the-go business types have to spend literally years of their lives in the air, no doubt wrestling with headaches, stress, and of course the just-as-frequent sounds of infant tantrums. For those who struggle through those trials and tribulations on Virgin Airlines, though, there might be a silver lining.It’s no secret that Virgin is pioneering the market of commercial space flight, and although it will be some time before you can book a round-trip flight to the moon, Virgin Galactic has been the first to offer millionaires the chance to lift off within a spacecraft and experience weightlessness, if even for a short period of time.Virgin Galactic will be making its first cross-brand promotion with Virgin Airlines, as one lucky (read: very, very frequent flier) will be able to attain “Galactic” status on their frequent flier account. That is, whoever earns the most frequent flier points between now and August 7, 2013 will be declared the first ever Galactic member, and will win a flight on Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo zero-gravity flight.The cost for regular fliers is a whopping $200,000, so this is quite a perk, but it is obviously something that no one will easily be able to win. While it’s pretty likely that no one reading this will gain the coveted prize, for Virgin, this is all about reminding people that as all this talk about Mars and space ramps up, it is the company that wants to make a difference in this market for the average person.Galactic Contest via US News
Imagine scanning items before you put them in your shopping cart and then, when you head to the front of the store, all you need to do is pay. The process of loading items into your cart, then unloading them at a checkout line, and then loading them back into your cart again could be a thing of the past if Walmart‘s new pilot program manages to catch on.The retailer is testing a process where customers can scan individual items with their iPhone during their shopping trip, and when they’re ready to check out, that list of products is transferred to a self-checkout machine at the front of the store.Customers then complete the checkout process as normal – apply coupons, use gifts, cards, etc, and pay. The iPhone is not used in the payment process. It merely replaces the act of scanning the individual products at the register. The test, which was not made public, was discovered through a link on Survey Monkey.Walmart has self-checkout aisles in many of its thousands of stores throughout the country, but not all of them by any means. The company spends around $12 million in cashier salaries every second, on average.There are few things more frustrating than having a basket full of products that you are willing and ready to pay for, only to realize you just need to wait for the old lady with the checkbook in front of you, or to be stuck behind the guy who argues with the cashier over a 99-cent can of soup. Anything to speed up that process is no doubt a very welcome innovation.In some regions around the world (read: Japan and Korea), grocery stores have already entered the future. The idea of smartphone-assisted shopping is nothing foreign over there. In the US, though, quite the opposite is the case.Back in 2000, Priceline.com even tried to make a difference in the market, offering a very complicated “name your own price” option for buying groceries at your local supermarket. While it had a loyal following, that following was too small and the venture swiftly failed.Something like Walmart’s new iPhone test, though, does not need to attract a swell of people all at once. It is the kind of thing that can take years to catch on without costing the retailer a ton of money. In fact, it would probably start saving money very quickly. There will always be people who prefer that human interaction, but those who just want to pay and get out should have that option as well.via Reuters
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Following protests by Greek communities both in Greece and around the world surrounding the ‘Macedonia’ name dispute, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia’s (FYROM) prime minister Zoran Zaev has reaffirmed his country’s willingness to change its name to resolve the long-standing dispute.On Tuesday Mr Zaev also said that Skopje’s Alexander the Great airport would from now on be renamed to Skopje International Airport and that its main road route to Greece would be renamed Friendship highway.The compromises were welcomed by Athens, who said the PM’s openness to adding a geographical qualifier would be a “positive step” in distinguishing the region of Macedonia in Greece, and would also alleviate any fears of territorial claim. “This is an important development,” the Greek foreign ministry said in an official statement.“We hope that it marks the start of a new chapter in the relations between our two countries and peoples.”According to diplomats, among the new names being considered are Upper Macedonia, New Macedonia, and Northern Macedonia.While Mr Zaev been most progress than the leaders before him, with the compromises being the first since 1993, the proposed names remain unpopular among certain groups of the Greek community both in Greece and across the diaspora. Athens has been against FYROM using the name ‘Macedonia’ since 1991 when the country proclaimed its independence. In light of this standpoint, Greece has also stopped Skopje from joining NATO in 2008 and its entry into the EU.
Share Two Texas mayors from the border region talked Wednesday with Houston Matters about President Trump’s prime-time address about what he describes as an immigration crisis.Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz said Trump’s words didn’t convince him about the real existence of a crisis at the border. Saenz, who is also Chair of the Texas Border Coalition –an association of mayors and judges from El Paso to Brownsville— told host Craig Cohen he doesn’t see the crisis that the President “tried to describe.” “Maybe there’s a certain degree to that, but we don’t necessarily call that a crisis,” added Saenz.He also said the Rio Grande serves as a barrier and noted he doesn’t support so much a physical wall to divide the border but, rather, a “virtual wall” which “would entail more technology” for the Border Patrol and other federal agencies.“The people we consult with in Austin, and Washington as well, tell us that this physical wall is not necessary, at least in this portion here,” said Saenz while he added that “maybe in other areas a fence or any physical structure may be necessary but, for us here, we don’t see that as a need.”Pool Photo via APIn this image from video, President Donald Trump speaks during a televised address from the Oval Office of the White House in Washington on Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019.The Laredo Mayor also commented about the elevated cost of building a wall. “This border wall comes with a price tag and that price tag is pretty hefty and at least we feel here it’s not being fiscally responsible,” he underlined and, additionally, referred to potential environmental problems and complaints by property owners.McAllen Mayor Jim Darling said one of his takeaways from Trump’s address is that he referred to the humanitarian aspect of the situation at the border, with thousands of migrants trying to enter the United States, some of them claiming they want to be granted asylum.Darling also said he doesn’t think the partial shutdown of the federal government is a good way to force that Congress approves funding for the wall, but added it’s “a little bit ironic” that Democrats are worried about $5 billion because “Congress wastes a lot of money all the time.”
Is that summer downpour flooding your basement? Did Rover get into the garbage again? Is your 50-inch flat-panel TV still in place? Find out from anywhere by using your PC to create an affordable home surveillance system that you can access over the Internet, or even over your cell phone. A professionally installed surveillance system costs at least $2000, but you can set up an uncomplicated USB-connected Webcam such as Logitech’s QuickCam Chat for $30, a wireless camera that can be placed almost anywhere for less than $200, or a complete PC-based monitoring system for under $1000.A basic surveillance system requires three things: a camera; motion-sensing software to activate the camera and to store its video or still images; and software to send the images over the Internet. Adding a wired or wireless network expands your home-surveillance capabilities.If you’re on a tight budget or you don’t want to deal with installing remote cameras, an inexpensive Webcam can serve as a bare-bones surveillance device. Many Webcams come with motion-sensing and remote-access software, but paying extra for a full-featured program may be worthwhile, especially if you want to use several Webcams of different makes (for two software recommendations, see “Cameras With Swivel”).The biggest drawback of a Webcam, of course, is that it’s tethered by a USB cable to your PC. Powered USB hubs and USB active repeater cables allow you to double or triple USB’s 5-meter length limit. Or you can wait for the convenience of wireless USB products, which should arrive soon. In fact, Belkin’s CableFree wireless USB hub may be available by the time you read this.IP cameras, on the other hand, can be placed anywhere there’s a network connection, making them ideal for homes or offices that already have a wireless network. Since they connect directly to your router rather than through your PC, you don’t need to keep the machine on to view the camera’s image in a browser. Prices for cameras with such features as night vision, remote-control positioning (pan-and-tilt controls, for instance), and zoom lenses can quickly escalate past $1000, but less expensive wireless cameras like D-Link’s DCS-5300G (about $500 online), Linksys’s Compact Wireless G Internet Video Camera (about $100 online) and 4XEM’s WLPTG Wireless Pan/Tilt IP Network Camera (about $390 online) have many of these extra features.Cameras With SwivelThe pan-and-tilt capability of the 4XEM and D-Link units let me monitor my living room, kitchen, and yard (through a window) with one camera whose view I controlled remotely, rather than having to use two or three stationary cameras. If you have pets, attach a speaker to let them hear your voice from afar.I installed three different wireless cameras on my wireless network, and though I struggled with the setup, after 5 hours I was monitoring my dog’s water bowl, my front door, and my vegetable garden from my cousin’s house across town.Of course, your network camera will only be as useful as the surveillance software that runs it. If the software bundled with your camera is difficult to use, has too limited a set of features, or is impossible to install, you can ditch it and try one of the many third-party alternatives, such as DeskShare’s $50 WebCam Monitor or iCode’s $79 i-Catcher Sentry. I found both apps much easier to configure and more useful than the programs that came with several of the cameras I tried out.Before you buy a camera-controller app, make sure its codec works with your cameras. IP cameras typically support either the MJPEG or the MPEG-4 codec, though some newer cameras support both. MPEG-4 cameras produce smaller video files, but at lower resolutions than MJPEG.Here answers to some common questions about remote surveillance cameras.How do I power a remote camera? If you want to place a camera somewhere without easy access to an electrical outlet, look for a camera that supports Power over Ethernet (PoE). PoE cameras can draw power from the CAT5 ethernet cable used to transmit data, eliminating the need for a separate power line. Some cameras feature built-in PoE support, while others, such as D-Link’s $45 DWL-P200, require a PoE adapter.What else can I monitor? If you need more than audio or visual confirmation that your home or business is safe and sound, Digi’s Watchport Sensors monitor temperature, moisture, and motion. Each sensor connects via USB to a PC and comes with software that sends alerts via e-mail or cell phone. The sensors cost between $130 and $180 online.Alternatively, Motorola’s Homesight Wireless Easy Starter Kit HMEZ2000 monitoring system offers a turnkey home security system with modules for wireless cameras, window and door monitors, and wireless (but not Wi-Fi) temperature and moisture sensors. The starter kit costs about $250. Water, temperature, and window/door sensors cost between $40 and $80 each.Where do I go for help? Don’t waste too much time with a troublesome installation. Call tech support; 4XEM’s excellent support line made my setup a breeze, while an hour with a D-Link support tech convinced me to try WebCam Monitor instead of sticking with D-Link’s software. My most important lesson: If one quick call to tech support doesn’t solve your problem, return your camera for one from a different manufacturer.Setting up an external link to the Internet can be challenging on any camera. Check out the overview at networkcamerareviews.com and find several useful tips for installing and running an IP camera.Print, But Save GreenIf you print something every day, you probably waste a little something every day as well. The GreenPrint Home utility lets you cut down on wasted paper and ink by making it fast and easy to identify and delete unwanted pages, text, or graphics in print jobs. GreenPrint installs as a printer, so if you designate it as your default, it automatically pops up each time you print. At $35 (with a free 30-day trial), the program certainly isn’t cheap–but given the price of ink and paper, it can pay for itself pretty quickly.Send your tips and questions to email@example.com .

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Research has shown that the enterprise mobile app market is expected to grow to $63 billion by 2020. In 2016, the average number of apps created by businesses was 11, a 126 percent increase on the number created.The case for creating mobile apps for business is strong, but like anything, there are good and bad ways to go about it. We know now that 23 percent of all apps are used only once but also that 39 percent of apps are used 11 times or more. Timing and circumstance will strongly determine on which side of the statistics your apps will be.Here are six great reasons why you should launch a mobile app for your business:1. You have a business problem to solve or an optimization to make.The most successful apps aren’t created because businesses had a channel to fill, but because there was an opportunity to optimize a process.If this is your company’s first app, the key is to not overthink what it needs to do: Apps are best when they serve a single purpose. You don’t need an app that does everything or has an eternal lifespan, but instead you must identify a short- or long-term purpose and determine how best to get there.Related: A Beginner’s Guide to Starting and Marketing an AppCheck out these three examples of business problems solved by apps:The problem: The company is growing fast and we need to keep employees connected. The solution: A staff directory app with messaging.The problem: Email newsletters/blogs aren’t getting enough readership. The solution: A topic-specific app that alerts users when there’s new content relevant to them.The problem: Customers complain that you could be more innovative. The solution: A customer support app where they can access their information and get in touch with the company instantly.2. You know your audience would love an app.Does your audience look anything like this?Tech savvyCheck their phone oftenLove your content, often ask you for moreDemand seasonal offers/event invitations/time-limited/loyalty opportunitiesWant above-and-beyond customer service from youBonus: Are already using the competition’s app(s)If it does, then your audience is a perfect fit for an app.Related: How Can App Makers Improve Revenue and Keep Users Engaged?3. You know exactly what will keep your audience coming back to the app.If you have an app idea and know exactly what will keep people coming back, you’ve won half the battle. Build that app immediately.If not, be warned: Even if you have a great use case for your app, it can still fail to retain users if it’s not engaging enough. What will make your app so special and why would someone come back to it?Consider this: A large business implemented an internal communications app with news, announcements and, secondarily, the company cafeteria’s menu for the day. It turns out that the menu was the feature that kept the most people coming back. The company did the clever thing and adjusted the app to show snapshots of internal news at the bottom of the menu, which increased engagement.Related: How to Increase Mobile App Engagement With Push Notifications4. You want to be seen as innovative and cutting-edge.Very few things say “innovative” louder than companies going “mobile-first”. Using apps shows that your business is willing to innovate, rather than stick with the norm.For example, your clients would probably be impressed if you started using tablets for meetings. They might expect you to use PowerPoint or printed materials, so they would notice if you take a fresher approach.In fact, many companies use apps more for the wow factor than because they have perfect app use cases. And, there’s nothing wrong with that at all. No company can adopt a new technology and use it perfectly from the outset. Getting used to the channel is part of figuring it out and getting great at it.5. Your competition is getting ahead of you with apps.Nothing springs innovation faster than the competition adopting new technologies. The more the technology grows, the more you’re going to get questions and requests from stakeholders. It might sound obvious, but most people in large companies strongly believe that enterprise mobile apps drive competitive advantage.So, if your reason for launching apps is that “others are doing it,” we can confirm that’s a good reason indeed. No one wants to be the laggard, do they?With apps, it’s an easy win: They are no longer the cost and time sucking format that they used to be. If your competitors are doing it, chances are you can quickly replicate it using a low/no code platform.Related: The Top 5 Myths of Mobile Apps — and Why Believing Them Will Hurt Your Business6. You’re borrowing an app idea from the competition and improving on it.Following up from before, if you want to jump on the app bandwagon because your competition is all over it, and you have a great idea for differentiating your app, then you should go right ahead. You might have a zero-to-hero kind of situation in your hands.Now, here are three reasons why you shouldn’t launch an app:1. You don’t have a way of making updates to your app quickly and easily.Inevitably, you’ll have to update your mobile app after you launch it. If you are thinking of using freelance or contractor developers or a digital agency to build you app(s), ask about the costs and times involved in a few update scenarios before you appoint them.With an app building platform, you may be able to bypass this issue altogether, as you might be able to edit and update your app instantly via the platform.Related: The Dominance of Mobile Marketing Is Complete2. You think this will be your company’s first and last app.Creating your first app is great, but if you’re thinking this is the only one you’ll ever need, then you might be expecting too much from it. Apps are most effective when they focus on a specific aspect of a business and use only one or two key features at once; that’s why the average company built 10.2 apps last year.Because of that, businesses need to make arrangements for the management of multiple apps to cover a variety of business purposes and topics. You might not need this at the beginning if you’re just building your first app, but the earlier you do so, the better.3. You don’t have resource in place internally to take care of the app.If you don’t have the right resources in place to to launch and scale an app across your organiz ation then the new app may well be on a road to failure before you’ve even begun. Figuring out how to launch mobile apps across your organization can include tasks such as:Finding advocates for the new technologyDetermining whether it will integrate with existing systemsScaling app initiativesMaintaining app contentHopefully, the reasons I’ve outlined above help identify when and why you should consider create an enterprise app. Likewise, they should have highlighted when it may not be ideal to launch an app for your business.Find out more about how an online app builder is the most time and cost efficient method of creating mobile apps for your business here.

Disgraced homophobe Roy Moore faces lawsuit after smearing sex abuse accuserDoug Jones officially wins! Alabama rejects homophobe Roy Moore’s lawsuitAlabama Senate loser Roy Moore shares article about winner Doug Jones’ gay sonPINK NEWS- Moore’s own son Caleb has been arrested nine times, which Jones was decent enough to not bring up during the campaign.The Facebook post was apparently a bridge too far for some of his supporters.One wrote: “I supported you during the campaign. I defended you in discussions with friends and family. But I have to tell you, this is a cheap shot.“It is unbecoming of a senatorial candidate to attack the family of your political opponent in my opinion. Just concede and go away. The Alabama GOP will just have to nominate a better candidate for 2020.”Another added: “Judge Moore should have won, but who cares if Jones has a gay son? You can be sure God loves him as much as any of the rest of us. Let’s not be hypocritical people.”The candidate’s Facebook page continues to refer to him as “Judge Roy Moore”, a title he has no claim to as a disgraced former judge who was sacked over an illegal anti-gay marriage crusade.As Alabama’s Chief Justice Moore had abused his authority in a bid to block gay weddings in the state, issuing orders declaring the US Supreme Court ruling on equal marriage “doesn’t apply” in Alabama, and ordered probate judges to enforce a gay marriage ban.He was ejected from his role after an ethics investigation found he had abused his power.No amount of public disgrace appears to be enough to stop Moore, who blames gay people for his loss.In a defiant video he ranted that “abortion, sodomy, and materialism have taken the place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.He continued to lash out at the “murder of unborn children and re-definition of marriage” before taking.Moore continued: “We’ve even begun to recognise the right of a man to claim to be a woman and visa versa. We’ve allowed judges and justices to overrule our constitution and we’ve become slaves to their tyranny. Immorality sweeps over our land.“Even our political process has been affected with baseless and false allegations which have become more relevant than the true issues.“This election was painted by over $50 million from outside groups who want to retain power in their own corrupt ideology.”Moore has previously praised Russia’s ‘gay propaganda’ law.CNN’s K-File found that Moore’s political Facebook page had shared a 2015 article by anti-LGBT website Barbwire titled ‘Conservative Russians Give Moral Lesson to Facebook’s Homosexual Propaganda’.The article addressed Russian efforts to ban a Facebook ‘Pride’ profile picture filter in the country under the gay ‘propaganda’ law.It lavished praise on the country for its “strong stance in defense of traditional family values” by passing “what is commonly referred to as the law against gay propaganda” to jail “insolent demonstrators”.Elsewhere on his Facebook page, Moore criticised local officials for permitting Pride parades to take place, and shared posts claiming that gay people have fabricated all instances of homophobic hate crimes.GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said: “The people of Alabama have spoken and made it known that Roy Moore’s personal values around sexual assaults, racism, and anti-LGBTQ hate do not align with American values.“Tonight’s results are a victory in the ongoing fight to uplift and support survivors of sexual assault, LGBTQ people, people of color, and other marginalized communities who are sick of seeing their humanity debated.“Moore’s loss is also a strong signal that Americans want better than President Trump and elected officials like him who aim to divide and discriminate, rather than unite.”HRC President Chad Griffin added: “In rejecting avowed bigot Roy Moore, Alabama voters solidified once and for all that attacking and demonizing the LGBTQ community is a sure-fire way to get yourself beat on Election Day.“Doug Jones’ victory in Alabama is monumental, and was made possible by the overwhelming and unprecedented, grassroots resistance of ordinary Alabamians against the politics of hate and division.“From our victories in North Carolina, Virginia, and now in Alabama, Equality Voters have proven that LGBTQ people and our allies are a voting bloc to be respected, sought-after and feared by candidates on both sides of the aisle.“The American people will no longer tolerate discrimination against their family, friends and neighbors.”Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) The fire started on Tuesday morning caused no harm to Johnson or her family.But her family home and all of its contents were destroyed.“I am devastated, just devastated,” said Johnson when approached by reporters on Friday.“We have just the clothes on our backs.”Johnson was one of various women who came forward and accused Moore of sexual misconduct.Disgraced Republican Roy Moore is also facing legal action from another accuser after suggesting that a woman accusing him of child molestation is a crazed liar.Moore – who believes gay sex should be illegal – was the GOP candidate for Alabama’s US Senate seat last month, but lost to Democrat Doug Jones in a surprise upset after Moore faced allegations of child molestation.RELATED: Celebrations as Doug Jones sworn in after beating vile homophobe Roy MooreDespite losing the election by more than 20,000 votes (1.5%) Moore has continued to refuse to concede, posting a surreal video in which he appeared to blame gay people for his election defeat.Things went from bad to worse for Moore this week, after a woman who came forward to accuse Moore of sexually abusing her when she was 14 years old sued Moore and his campaign for defamation.Leigh Corfman’s lawsuit, which was filed in Alabama’s Montgomery County Circuit Court, cites smears attacking her credibility from Moore and his supporters.She is seeking a defamation judgement, a public apology, and legal costs.A statement said: “Mr Moore has repeatedly attacked Ms Corfman despite knowing that he sexually abused Ms Corfman when she was 14 years old.“At a minimum, Mr Moore made his false denials with reckless disregard of the truth.”Ms Corfman said: “The decision to sue Mr Moore and his campaign committee was difficult, but they need to be held responsible for their actions.“Mr Moore sexually abused me when I was only 14 years old. Then he and his campaign called me a liar and immoral when I publicly disclosed his misconduct.“They ignored my requests to stop attacking me and to acknowledge the truth.“Just last week, after the election, they filed a lawsuit in which they once again called me a liar.“By this lawsuit, I seek to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old—hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable.”Prior to the allegations, establishment conservatives had flocked to back Moore despite his anti-LGBT views.Moore has openly admitted that he thinks “homosexual conduct should be illegal”, and has also compared gay sex to bestiality, saying: “Just because it’s done behind closed doors, it can still be prohibited by state law.”In a sinister move last week, Moore shared an article about Senator-elect Doug Jones’ gay son on social media.Moore did not post a message alongside the link, but his supporters heard the dog whistle loud and clear – posting a string of homophobic abuse aimed at Carson Jones.One wrote: “Well the way I see it if god wanted us to be with men on men and women on women and black with white he would have put us on earth that way guess what we are not that way it was Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve so with that said don’t push it on me I get sick and tried of hearing this crap.“Just like Obama and the dem’s always trying to push it on us letting men go to girls bathroom just because one day they wake up and say o today I am a woman but to some that is ok well not by me it is not ok I don’t stand for it.”The Daily Beast points out that the disgraced candidate should probably not be one to throw stones at other people’s families. One of the women who accused failed Alabama Senate candidate and avowed homophobe Roy Moore of sexual misconduct has lost her house in a possible arson attack.Tina Johnson lost her home this week in a fire which authorities are treating as possible arson, according to reports.
