About SurfAid:

SurfAid’s core mission is to save the lives of women and children in remote areas connected to us by surfing.  We specialize in working in very isolated villages where the maternal and child mortality rate is extremely high.

Many in our communities suffer from preventable causes. SurfAid implements a “hand up, not a hand out” philosophy toward aid.  Local staff provides advice, training, and expertise, but it is up to the community to implement and embrace change. We educate communities on simple things like clean water and sanitation, basic healthcare and improved nutrition.  All of which have enormous positive impacts on the health of women and their families.

In Nias Indonesia, working with a population of 10,000, SurfAid has helped to reduce maternal deaths from 8 annually to zero for three years in a row. During the same timeframe, the mortality rate for children under five has all but disappeared with only one death reported last year. That is down from an average of 22 per year at the start of the program in 2012.

In the past 17 years, in addition to building award winning health programs, SurfAid has helped communities re-build their lives after five major natural disasters – earthquakes and tsunamis in the area.

Charlamagne Tha God’s Rape Allegation Sparks Petition Calling For His Firing

                                                 (Photo credit: Charlamagne Instagram)

As previously reported, Jessica Reid, the woman who accused Charlamagne Tha God (born Lenard Larry McKelvey) of rape in 2001 when she was 15, is seeking legal representation and wants to reopen a criminal case.

But on Thursday (July 12), South Carolina Ninth Circuit Solicitor Scarlett A. Wilson issued a statement saying the dismissed rape charge against McKelvey will not be resurrected and the law presumes him “innocent of the dismissed allegation.”

The Breakfast Club host is facing pressure over the 17-year-old rape allegation with a new petition demanding his firing from the popular iHeartMedia radio show.

As reported by Billboard, a Care2 petition launched Wednesday (July 11) had more than 1,700 supporters at time of publishing, claiming it was in support of Jessica Reid.

 

Reid was only 15 when she first brought the claims against Charlamagne– allegations he has denied. Her mother, Joslyn, told The Blast that at the time, she was trying to protect her daughter from suffering and stopped the teenager from cooperating in the prosecution. Reid now says she is looking for closure on the incident.

McKelvey ultimately pled guilty to a lesser charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and was sentenced to three years probation. According to the report, South Carolina — where the incident took place — has no statute of limitations on criminal prosecution.

Charlamagne has previously discussed the charges against him. In an interview with DJ Akademiks, he explained why they reduced the charges. Watch it via the clip above.

“We want to send a powerful message to all of the people who like to prey on innocent children that it’s not going to happen on our watch,” states the petition. “No matter how much money or influence you have, we will not allow you to hurt our children.”

Charlamagne’s new book, “Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks on Me,” is scheduled for release in October via Simon & Schuster, following his New York Times bestseller “Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It.”

Elon Musk’s Girlfriend Grimes Deletes Tweet Calling Tesla Union-Busting ‘Fake News’

Gilbert Carrasquillo/Getty

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and synthpop musician Grimes are a union, the newly minted couple announced this month. What’s not a union: workers at Tesla’s factory, where employees have accused management of union-busting.

Yet on Twitter Monday night, Grimes on Twitter called reports of union-busting “fake news.”

Employees have publicly rallied for a union since early 2017, citing injuries and burnout assembling Tesla cars. Those employees previously accused management of attempting to intimidate workers out of a union drive, and leaked emails show Musk slamming the organized labor effort.

‘The Walking Dead’ star Jeffrey Dean Morgan Is Calling For a Negan Spin-Off

With Fear the Walking Dead proving a success – it’s now on Season 4 – it’s perhaps no surprise that Walking Dead bosses are talking about expanding the universe further. One of the major characters to make a big impact on the main show has been villain Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Fans both love to hate and love to love the charismatic bad guy. So the prospect of a spin-off focused on Savior boss Negan is very alluring – and not just to fans. Jeffrey Dean Morgan would love one too.

“I would like to see Negan before the zombie apocalypse,” he told FANDOM while doing publicity for his latest film Rampage. In the movie, Morgan plays a character called Agent Russell, who bears more than a passing resemblance to the Walking Dead bad boy. So much so, in fact, that the actor also discussed the similarities between the two characters, along with the chances that Russell is Negan, and the idea that Rampage could be a prequel to The Walking Dead. You can watch him talking about this here.

More Negan Required


Negan-The-Walking-Dead
Negan was captured by Jadis — and manipulated her into releasing him by tugging on the heartstrings.

“Now, if he’s this guy, Agent Russell, I’d like to see that,” continued Morgan. “But [Walking Dead creator] Robert Kirkman has done a little bit of thought on the Negan pre-zombie apocalypse, and I would be more than happy to see that. I would like to take part in some filming of that. I think that would help explain this character a great deal. Because, unfortunately, the way things go with so many characters and storylines, we don’t see enough — and I think that that is needed, especially when you have a character like Negan.”

The main show has only revealed glimpses, up to now, of Negan’s backstory. And what we’ve learned has been very much according to Negan himself, who is not necessarily a reliable source. Especially when the moments when he’s let details slip have been during periods where he’s been vulnerable. Notably, when marooned in a hut surrounded by walkers with Father Gabriel, and also when tied up by Jadis. He’s certainly been able to manipulate both by spilling some secrets about his past in each instance. So we surely have to take what we’ve learned so far about Negan with a pinch of salt.

Backstory Reveal


The-Walking-Dead-Negan-Gabriel
Negan recounted elements of his backstory to soften Father Gabriel and bend him to his will.

But while Morgan definitely feels Negan’s story could be better explored in his own spin-off series, he did tease that there could be more Negan history revelations to come in The Walking Dead.

“[We’ve had] a little bit more this season, which is nice, but I’d like to see more. I think it’s important not only for the development of the character but I think the show. So we’ll see,” he said.

When FANDOM interviewed show boss Greg Nicotero recently, he told us that he’d love to work on a frozen zombie spin-off – which Morgan would also love to be a part of.

“Why don’t we just go up to Canada or upstate New York where I live? That’d be great,” he said. “I’m sick of shooting in Georgia in the middle of summer. That’s rough. I like the idea of shooting some frozen zombies. That would be cool as hell. Literally and figuratively.”

Rampage is in cinemas now.

SHOPPING DISCOUNT UPDATE:

Can we please stop calling maternity leave ‘time off’?

In her first Friday column, Marie Claire’s entertainment editor Lucy Pavia tackles the language of maternity leave, Nepal’s period banishment and why Cameron Diaz should demand a ‘Reese’ rider

A friend of mine has quit his job to travel the world for a year. I feel little pangs of jealousy every time one of his gorgeous Argentinian waterfall shots pops up on my Instagram feed, usually timed to the second I’ve folded myself into the final air pocket of space left on the train to work. But really, why should he not enjoy some time off after a decade of working his socks off.

I recently heard the same words – ‘time off’ – used to describe a friend who is on maternity leave right now. Her baby is going through the 4-month sleep regression. I think she would quite like to be standing by a peaceful Argentinian waterfall right now, if only for the baby-free opportunity to lie down on the cold hard rock and sleep.

Is it time to call bullshit on using ‘time off’,  ‘a break’ or – as my colleague had it put to her once, ‘your holiday’ – when we’re talking about maternity leave? Not only do the words denote relaxation and me-time, things maternity leave definitely don’t involve, there’s the underlying suggestion that we’re not all part of the same cycle.

Were the people I’ve listened to moan about the ‘disruption’ caused by their colleague ‘going off to have a baby again’ raised by a stork? Or did they simply materialise, age 25, in a suit with adult social skills and a law degree, ready to take their place in the workforce?

Perhaps they believe the business of continuing the human race has nothing to do with them, even if many of those humans will one day be adults who work in an office and pay taxes like they do, or care for them when they’re old and infirm?

A man once told me quietly that he wasn’t entirely sure he was a feminist after seeing his brother run a small business that was ‘disrupted’ (that word again) by a woman having a baby. I argued that his problem wasn’t with women but with a system that sees child rearing as a women problem in isolation.

I know it’s a cliché to bang the Scandi drum when it comes to parental leave policy, but case in point is a work meeting my husband had recently with a group of Swedish men. They told him a man in their office had been nicknamed ‘the caveman’ because he only took three months of parental leave. They’d all taken six.

With uptake of shared leave in the UK still pretty low by comparison (according to research by law firm EMW just 1% took it up between April 2016 and March 2017) we’ll need seismic cultural shifts to get to this point. But adjusting our language is a good place to start.

‘Getting to know a baby looks like doing an awful lot of nothing, and that’s what it feels like too. It’s 24-hour, frequently lonely, often dull’, my friend Jules tells me on email. ‘It’s also life-changing, rewarding and magical. But what it is not, is a holiday.’

Or, as another friend Rachel puts it, ‘you know what is time off? Getting to go back to work!’

Why Cameron Diaz should ask for a ‘Reese’ rider

Selma Blair has been forced to do some damage control after talking about her friend Cameron Diaz’s ‘retirement’ from acting. At the Vanity Fair Oscars pre-party, Blair said the pair would not be making a sequel of The Sweetest Thing because ‘Cameron’s retired from acting. She’s like “I’m done.” She doesn’t need to make any more films. She has a pretty great life, I don’t know what it would take to bring her back.’

Blair has now insisted the statement was a joke and her friend is still very much in the game. But if Diaz – whose last film Annie was released in 2014 – is privately a bit fed up with Hollywood, perhaps she could introduce a new clause.

Frances McDormand asked actors to insist on an ‘inclusion rider’ in her Oscars speech. Since some of the best and most inclusive TV and film is now being made by Reese Witherspoon under her production company Hello Sunshine (Big Little Lies with Meryl, A White Lie with Zendaya, Jennifer Aniston’s as-yet-untitled return to TV as a morning show anchor, Little Fires Everywhere with Kerry Washington) perhaps Diaz could take it one step further by demanding a Reese Rider. No Witherspoon? No deal.

The cups saving women in Nepal

Those imposing it now face jail time if caught, but the old practice of Chhaupadi – banishing women and girls to huts when they’re on their period – is still widespread in Nepal.

Chhaupadi can leave women exposed to the elements and malnourished, as they’re often also forbidden to consume fruit, vegetables and milk products. There was international outrage last year when an 18-year-old called Tulsa Shahi died after being bitten by a snake during her time in a menstruation hut.

But a wider use of menstrual cups are helping reduce the number of women isolated by their communities. ‘Because menstruation cups don’t produce any trash, they provide us with privacy’ Executive director of Nepal Communitere, Bahar Kumar, told ABC news, ‘I’ve bought all my nieces menstrual cups and implemented a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy for myself in my family, slowly encouraging them to do the same.’

The solution isn’t perfect – Deputy Director of Women LEAD Nepal, Shreya Thapa, says a change in mentality is also badly needed – but the cups provide a level of privacy for women and girls in Nepal that could save their lives.

Reason we still need feminism #100000008.

EXCLUSIVE: Model Christopher Cates Pens Letter Calling for Action Against Harassment

As the uproar continues over sexual harassment in industries stretching from entertainment to media to finance, the fashion world has remained relatively on the sidelines so far even as numerous models came forward months ago to allege they had been mistreated by photographers, designers and casting agents.
Model Cameron Russell’s Instagram account continues to grow with anonymous individuals posting stories about their mistreatment in the industry. Last October, Terry Richardson was dropped by the leading fashion magazine publishers but only after years of allegations surrounding his behavior, while model Jason Boyce filed a lawsuit against Bruce Weber in December claiming the photographer harassed him. Weber has vigorously denied the claims.
In November, 27-year-old British model Edie Campbell penned an exclusive letter for WWD to the fashion industry in which she said, “We operate within a culture that is too accepting of abuse, in all of its manifestations,” going on to admonish the mainstream media for its silence about the sexual abuse suffered by male models, which she described in her letter as “more complex.”

Calling all mom-trepreneurs! Take the GenH Challenge

by

BabyCenter Staff

posted in Life

By Alice Lin Fabiano, Johnson & Johnson

Though we might not always think of ourselves as innovators or entrepreneurs, moms are constantly discovering and designing child care “hacks,” lifting each other up, and sharing stories, tips and ideas to better care for our children. If you’ve ever thought about taking those ideas out of your inner circle and sharing them with the world, the GenH Challenge is for you!

We know what it takes to keep our families healthy – and our insights can help ensure the next generation is the healthiest generation – “GenH.”

As parents, we do our best to provide our children with the highest quality care. We read parenting books, we research pediatricians, we call our friends and family for advice on the best products and processes out there. And ultimately, we also want to support and champion a better world so that our children can grow up and benefit from it.

Though we’ve made great progress in bringing more cures and health solutions to more people, access to quality health care still remains one of the world’s greatest public health challenges. There are moms like us around the world who aren’t able to feel the comfort of safe and healthy children and of knowing that should something happen to their child, there are resources available to care for them.

Right now, more than ever, we have the opportunity to make this persistent challenge history. The ideas that will shape the future of health can come from anyone, anywhere in the world – including people like you and me, with intimate and personal knowledge of care. That’s why I’m excited about the GenH Challenge, a social venture competition that champions everyday ideas to change the trajectory of health.

So whether you’re a supermom constantly adapting to the ever-changing needs of your children, a caregiver providing necessary aid to individuals with chronic disease, a nurse testing better ways to care for your patients or anything in between, our creative platform engages bright minds like yours working on the biggest health challenges of our time, no matter how small or big they may seem. Through the spark of investment, the GenH Challenge harnesses expertise and insights from innovators like you to create sustainable health improvements worldwide.

A healthier future will take all of us – and all of our ideas – to achieve. But when we bring our ingenuity and instinct as “mom-trepreneurs,” we’ll be setting our children on a course to be the healthiest generation possible – our true GenH.

Kobe Bryant Adds to His Challenges, Calling Upon Giannis Antetokounmpo & John Wall

Kobe Bryant made waves on Twitter earlier this week after handing out a few different challenges to the likes of Richard Sherman, Kendrick Lamar, and DeMar DeRozan. From personal accolades in their respective fields to bringing change to their communities, those called upon the Black Mamba have all been quite receptive of the challenges. Now, Bryant has added two more members to the mix, calling upon Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks and John Wall of the Washington Wizards.

In the first tweet, the five-time NBA champion challenged Antetokounmpo to win this year’s Most Valuable Player award. Doing so won’t be an easy task, as the young Bucks forward will have to beat out reigning MVP Russell Westbrook, along with former award winners Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, and LeBron James.  The second tweet was in response to Wizards fan account @WizardsTalk, in which he challenged Wall to make league’s First All-Defensive Team. The closest Wall has ever come to accomplishing this was back during the 2014-2015 NBA season, where he claimed a spot on the Second All-Defensive Team finishing behind Chris Paul and Tony Allen.

Do you think John Wall and Giannis Antetokounmpo have what it takes to meet Kobe’s challenges? Let us know in the comments.

Calling all OG “That’s So Raven” fans, the spinoff is getting a throwback episode

If you haven’t been watching Raven’s Home, what have you been doing with your life?! The follow-up to Disney Channel’s hilarious That’s So Raven centers on Raven (Raven-Symoné), her two kids, and the many hijinks that they get into along with Chelsea (Anneliese van der Pol) and her son. And we just found out that there’s going to be a throwback episode of Raven’s Home that OG That’s So Raven fans will surely love.

Prepare to happy dance, like Raven herself!

Disney

That’s So Raven ended in 2007, but 10 years later — it’s back! Sorta. Raven’s Home already gives fans of That’s So Raven a taste of what they’ve been missing since the show went off the air. And in a recent interview with TVLine, Raven said there’s more to come for fans of the original.

There won’t be flashbacks, but there will be a throwback episode.

“I was talking to the writers, and I was like, ‘This is our chance to really touch on certain things and bring back characters and ideas in a different way. We can use people’s memories to make a situation better.’”

Curious as to who could be coming back for a visit? Raven has some ideas:

“You’ve got the Boyz N Motion, you have [Raven’s parents] Victor and Tanya, that crazy psychic community she met that one time, all the teachers — so many people.”

Sounds like we can expect plenty of familiar faces in the future, even if we can’t see it ourselves. Raven’s Home currently airs on Disney Channel and is the perfect cure to any bad mood. Because, more Raven in our lives — old and new — is always a good thing!

Stephen Fry Reportedly Faces Blasphemy Probe After Calling God A ‘Maniac’

English comedian Stephen Fry is reportedly under investigation for blasphemy after calling God “utterly evil” and a “maniac” during an interview with an Irish TV show two years ago.

An unidentified member of the public told the Irish Independent they had reported the outspoken atheist’s comments to authorities in western Ireland because they were doing their “civic duty by reporting a crime,” not because they were personally offended.

Individuals who publish or speak blasphemy can face a fine of up to €25,000 under the Republic of Ireland’s Defamation Act 2009, according to the BBC.

Fry, who currently stars in CBS’s “The Great Indoors,” criticized God on TV channel RTE in 2015 after being asked what he’d say to “him, her or it” if given the chance.

“I’ll say: Bone cancer in children, what’s that about? How dare you create a world where there is such misery that’s not our fault? It’s utterly, utterly evil,” he told Gay Byrne, host of program “The Meaning of Life.” “Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid god who creates a world which is so full of injustice and pain?”

“The god who created this universe, if he created this universe, is quite clearly a maniac, an utter maniac, totally selfish,” Fry added. “We have to spend our lives on our knees thanking him. What kind of god would do that?”

“Yes, the world is very splendid, but it also has in it insects whose whole life cycle is to burrow into the eyes of children and make them blind,” he said. 

The individual claiming responsibility for reporting Fry’s comments told the Independent that they traveled to the Ennis Garda station to file the report shortly after the interview aired. They’ve repeatedly followed up with police ever since.

“I told the Garda I wanted to report Fry for uttering blasphemy and RTE for publishing/broadcasting it and that I believed these were criminal offenses under the Defamation Act 2009,” the person told the news site. “I simply believed that the comments made by Fry on RTE were criminal blasphemy and that I was doing my civic duty by reporting a crime.”

Local authorities told the Independent that they are investigating the complaint but that charges are unlikely.

Other atheists have since rallied behind Fry. 

Atheist Ireland, which has called the defamation law “silly, silencing, and dangerous,” responded to news of the investigation by publishing 25 other blasphemous quotes that they released after the Irish law first went into effect.

The British Humanist Association also released a statement on Saturday defending Fry’s words and also calling for the dissolution of Ireland’s blasphemy law.

“It is ridiculous that Stephen Fry is being investigated for a possible breach of Ireland’s blasphemy laws,” BHA Chief Executive Andrew Copson said. “Not only are such laws detrimental to free speech here in Europe, but they also enable countries like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Iran to justify their own laws, which in the case of 13 states come with a death sentence.”

A spokesperson for Fry, reached by the Telegraph, declined comment, stating: “[There is] nothing for us to say while this is under investigation.”

George Clooney Blasts Donald Trump Over Calling Meryl Streep ‘Overrated’

George Clooney is weighing in on President-elect Donald Trump’s comments about Meryl Streep following her politically charged speech at the Golden Globes.

Trump lashed out at the actress via Twitter on Monday after she criticized him in her passionate Golden Globes speech about empathy Sunday night. In response, Trump called her “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood.”

Clooney, a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter and former costar of Streep’s, addressed the controversy at a reception hosted by The Clooney Foundation for Justice on Monday. The event was in support of the Netflix documentary White Helmets about the work done by heroic Syrians to help those hit by bombings in the country.

“I’ve always said that about Meryl,” Clooney told PEOPLE sarcastically. “She’s maybe the most overrated actress of all-time. She and I worked together on Fantastic Mr. Fox as husband and wife and I will tell you even as a fox, a female fox, she’s overrated,” he said with a smile. “Aren’t you supposed to be running the country?” he asked Trump rhetorically.

Asked about bringing his star power to causes, Clooney told PEOPLE, “The only reason that people who are well known should be involved in these kinds of things is when no one knows about them.”

He explained, “I remember getting involved in Darfur in 2005-ish and part of the reason was that it wasn’t being talked about. I can’t change policy, but I can make things louder. I can help them make it louder — they’re the filmmakers, the brave ones and the White Helmets are the heroes, so if I can help them out at all and people can know about it, in any way possible, then that’s a good use of celebrity, I think.”

Addressing the reception following a screening of the harrowing film in a Central London hotel, he thanked the filmmakers, director Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara. 

“The reality is that bad things happen when the lights have been turned off. That’s what the bad guys want,” Clooney said. “You have to have the lights on, and show what this really is, and show that these are human beings and not names and statistics. They are living and surviving and caring for one another. What you are doing is spectacular. Thank you for this.”

Despite the desperate situation in Syria, Clooney concluded his speech on a hopeful note. “The reality is that the vast majority of human beings are kind and want what’s best for their neighbors, for their children, for their families and also what’s best for their neighbors and people they don’t even know,” he said.

“That is the norm, that’s what’s ordinary and we forget that sometimes,” added the actor. “What is extraordinary is these people who put on White Helmets and run towards violence while everyone else is running away from it. Where there is no other structure or society, they are there to protect. And they risk their lives to do it. First and foremost they are heroes.”

Why This Mom Is Calling Miley Cyrus a Hero

2015-05-08-1431122315-6935675-Miley.jpg

Say what you will about Miley Cyrus but the girl has the ability to accumulate press. And, what I’ve always loved about her, even when her actions made me cringe, is that she didn’t seem to care what other people said or thought. That kind of self-confidence, especially in a girl that age, always blew me away.

But, now she just because my freaking hero.

Have you heard of The Happy Hippie Foundation yet? If not, I want you to finish reading this sentence and take the link to read about it. I’ll be right here when you come back.

Did you read about it? Can you understand why I am moved to tears by her work? She outlines how 40 percent of homeless youth identify as LGBT and how 1 in 3 transgender youth have been turned away from shelters. She has started an organization to directly help homeless youth, LGBT youth, and other vulnerable populations achieve positive outcomes in their lives.

And Miley isn’t just talk. She raised over $ 200,000 in 24 hours for My Friend’s Place, an organization dedicated to helping homeless youth. I can’t even read their description of homeless youth statistics without getting choked up.

Miley’s marketing for her foundation is smart. She’ll be having backyard jam sessions with huge names like Joan Jett and posting them on Facebook to help raise awareness. Um, can you get any cooler than Joan Jett??

Somewhere along the way, little Hannah Montana has grown up to be a young woman who has the world’s attention with a voice on very adult issues. Her recent interview in Out magazine painted the picture of a young woman coming into her own with a desire to use her influence to change the world for youth.

As the parent of a transgender 9-year-old girl, I was excited to share that Miley is very aware of gender issues and embraces a life free from the boxes we traditionally put people into. From the Out Magazine article:

“Miley says she already spent a lot of time struggling with traditional gender expectations–and being resentful that she was a girl. “I didn’t want to be a boy,” she clarifies. “I kind of wanted to be nothing. I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy, and I think that’s what I had to understand: Being a girl isn’t what I hate, it’s the box that I get put into.”

My daughter didn’t know who Hannah Montana was (we missed that by a few years) but she was very aware of who Miley Cyrus was. I wish I could have captured the grin that spread across her face when I shared the news with her. Though my daughter identifies strongly as a female, I have a heart for gender-fluid individuals and feel that they are desperately underrepresented and face even more barriers. I’m so happy that Miley has been open and rather candid about her wish not to be put into a binary box.

Thank you, Miley. I am truly impressed with your work and I’m thrilled that my daughter can call you a role model.

Yep, I just said that. And meant it.
