Alabama Passes Bill Declaring Right to Life from Moment of Conception*

Alabama Passes Bill Declaring Right to Life from Moment of Conception*

Genuine laughterBy Lisa Bourne

The Alabama House of Representatives’ Health Committee approved a proposed constitutional amendment Wednesday declaring that life begins at conception.

The personhood bill’s sponsor, Republican Representative Ed Henry, says that the measure is not a direct attack on abortion, but it would establish that abortion conflicts with the state’s values, and its purpose was to give voters the ability to establish the position that life begins at conception.

Responding to the question of why he would introduce legislation likely to draw a court challenge Henry told, “Because I believe in life.”

The House Health Committee passed the bill on a voice vote without debate but with some opposition.

If approved by three-fifths of both the state’s House and Senate membership, the personhood amendment would then go before Alabama voters.

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) attorney Brock Boone criticized the measure at last month’s public hearing on the amendment, The Cullman Times reports, because it would affect abortion in cases of rape and incest, and because, he said, it could make some methods of contraception the “legal equivalent of homicide.”

Brock also called the amendment an “attack on women.”

Henry said Wednesday the legislation “might” affect some forms of birth control and would affect some in-vitro fertilization techniques.

A bill establishing life at the moment of implantation in the womb had passed the Alabama Senate in 2011, but failed to get a vote in the House before the session ended.

The state’s Supreme Court would establish one year later that Alabama mothers had the right to sue in cases where their unborn child wrongfully dies before viability, the court unanimously ruling, “each person has a God-given right to life.”

A committee in the Missouri House approved a personhood constitutional amendment on Tuesday this week. That amendment would establish the right to life for “unborn human children at every stage of biological development.”

Personhood legislation efforts in other states, including Colorado, North Dakota and Mississippi have fallen short in voter referendums.

Henry did recognize that a legal challenge to the amendment, if approved by voters, was likely.

But, he stated, “I believe in life and protecting it. No matter if we’re going to be sued.”

Preparing for War or a Huge Profit? Oil Supertankers Forming “World’s Biggest Traffic Jam”*

Preparing for War or a Huge Profit? Oil Supertankers Forming “World’s Biggest Traffic Jam”*

Last week we revealed what we thought was a “shocking photo” of nearly 30 oil tankers caught in a traffic jam off the Iraqi coast, an indication of just how much excess oil is currently parked offshore.

To be sure, the record offshore storage is a problem because with the front-end contango collapsing, DB warned just several weeks ago when comparing the current level of floating storage (157.3 million barrels) versus that in early February (126.6 million barrels), that there may be an additional 31 million barrels of inventory to be drawn down between now and the next inventory trough over the next several months. It calculated that “depending on the duration of drawdown (three months or six months) this could mean anywhere from 165-330 kb/d of incremental supply.”

But the photo above, meant to do DB’s thesis justice, was nothing in comparisons to what Reuters would reveal today.

Because as ports struggle to cope with a global oil glut, huge queues of supertankers have formed in some of the world’s busiest sea lanes, where some 200 million barrels of crude lies waiting to be loaded or delivered, Reuters reports today.

The vessels, filled with oil worth around $7.5 billion at current market prices, would stretch for almost 40 km (25 miles) if formed up in one straight line.

Something not quite so theoretical, and yet almost identical taking place right now, is shown in the photo below, which shows VLCC supertankers travelling between India and Southeast Asia, courtesy of Reuters.

And while the market is for now clearly ignoring the unprecedented accumulation of oil in offshore storage, a bearish indicator of just how much oil will hit markets if and when prices continue rising or when collapsing contango makes it no longer economic to hold for many it is an all too real daily existence. As Reuters reports, one captain with more than 20 years at sea said his tanker had been anchored off Qingdao in northeastern China since late March and was unlikely to dock before the end of this week, a frustrating delay of more than three weeks.

“We’ve stayed here a long time,” he said, requesting anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the press, but added that another kind of jam was helping to alleviate the boredom.

“We have a piano, drums, crew who play guitar – they are not professional but they are coming good. We have more than 1,000 DVDs so there is no need to watch the same one 20 times.”

As we first showed last week in the photo above, the worst congestion is in the Middle East, as ports struggle to cope with soaring output available for export.

It’s not just the Persian Gulf though: shocking sights can be seen in Asia, where many ports have not been upgraded in time to deal with ravenous demand as consumers take advantage of cheap fuel.

It’s the worst I’ve seen at Qingdao,” said a second tanker captain waiting to offload at the world’s seventh busiest port, adding that his crew was killing time doing maintenance work.

Ralph Leszczynski, head of research at shipbroker Banchero Costa, in Singapore, said the snarl-up was “one of the worst tanker traffic jams in recent years“.  The cause was “a perfect storm of red-hot demand from new entrant refineries in China and port infrastructure in the Middle East and Latin America that is unable to cope”, he said.

Perhaps in retrospect it is not so much “ravenous demand”, as soaring supply with no place to deliver the oil to. According to ship tracking data, 125 supertankers with the capacity to carry oil to supply energy-hungry China for three weeks, are waiting in line at ports. The combined daily cost is $6.25 million, based on current ship hire rates of around $50,000-a-day. It is also why Swiss energy trading companies such as Vitol and Trafigura have had a bumper year, one which has offset their pure-play commodity exposure losses.

“It messes up port schedules, catering schedules, crew schedules and the schedules of delivering the transported goods,” said one shipping logistics manager in Singapore.

“It also raises the cost for pretty much everyone involved.”

For dealers, a month-long delay can turn a profitable trade into a painful loss.

“If you’ve bought 100,000 barrels of crude at $40 (a barrel) that’ll cost you $4 million,” said one oil trader. “And if you’ve calculated another 1.5 million bucks for a month’s worth of shipping, but you end up paying double that because your ship is stuck in port congestion, then that can seriously mess up everything from your schedule to your arbitrage profitability.”

In other words, for every Vitol that is making a killing on the contango, someone is losing.

Here Reuters gets to the heart of the matter with the explanation why oil shipping lanes now look like parking lots:

“at the heart of the congestion is an unprecedented rise in global oil production… as soaring output has pulled down oil prices by as much as 70% since 2014. That has helped spur demand from China’s independent refiners, freed from government restrictions on imports just last year and gorging on plentiful crude, putting extra pressure on ports.”

The unprecedented number of ships at sea filled with cargo and just waiting for the signal to offload is also causing congestion between the main producer and consumer hubs.

Almost all supertankers heading to Asia pass by Singapore or adjacent facilities in southern Malaysia, the world’s fuel station for tankers and also a global refinery and ship maintenance hub.

Shipping data shows that some 50 supertankers are currently anchored in or close to Singaporean waters for refuelling, maintenance or waiting to deliver crude to refineries or be used as floating storage.

This can be seen in the following Reuters photo of oil tankers lining up on the eastern coast of Singapore.

As well as the following Marinetraffic map.

For sailors stuck onboard this “parking lot” of anchored tankers, one of the biggest problems is simply wiling away the time, Reuters adds.

“Some of the ships are well-equipped for their crews, but many aren’t,” said a Filipino sailor who left a very large crude carrier (VLCC) in March after a voyage to China.

“On my last one, we had no regular internet … only an old TV with a couple of old DVD movies. The food is terrible and while waiting to offload we did pretty hard maintenance work. The sort of stuff you can’t do when the engine is running.”

Captain Alan Loynd, who spent more than 25 years at sea and is now a marine consultant, said long port delays were rare, but could be tedious and isolating when they happened.

And unlike in previous eras, having a couple of beers to break the monotony is usually out of the question.

“The chances of getting ashore are remote,” he said.

“A lot of ships are now dry, so there’s no alcohol on board.”

Unfortunately for Capitan Loynd and so many of his peers, the dry period will last a lot longer because as even more supply is unleashed, as land-based storage fills up and as every incremental producer rushes to stash millions of barrels on whatever ships they can charter just to let them float at sea.

Unless of course, the short-end contango flips and becomes a huge cash burn for the owners of all that oil to keep all their not so precious cargo seaborne. In that case those tens of millions of barrels will promptly find their way to the market, which will then unleash an unprecedented period of wholesale dumping as the liquidation scramble to find a buyer at any price, pushes oil prices to fresh new lows.

Chicago Vets are Keeping These Students Safe in Dangerous Neighbourhoods*

Chicago Vets are Keeping These Students Safe in Dangerous Neighbourhoods*

Veterans in Chicago are keeping students safe in one of the most dangerous regions of Chicago by being present as the students walk to school. The Safe Passage Program, founded in 2011 by a non-profit organization called Leave No Veteran Behind (LNVB), has two purposes: to reduce the violence in these areas and to pay off the student debt of veterans.

Leave No Veteran Behind employs these local veterans by paying off their debt and helping them look for jobs. Their job is to look out for the 8,000 students commuting to school every day.

Since the program began, over 400 veterans have passed through. LNVB has paid back over $150,000 of their student loans through the Retroactive Scholarship Program in exchange for 100-400 hours of community service that the veterans are also paid for. The schedule allows the employees to also have the daytime to search for a job.

This isn’t just volunteerism, but actual work,” Eli Williamson, co-founder of Leave No Veteran Behind, told The Huffington Post. “It provides flexibility to go and look for alternate employment.”

Though the city of Chicago, known for its high crime-rate, has seen steadily declining murder rates since the peak in the early-1990s, some neighbourhoods remain comparatively violent. A crime gap has divided these dangerous neighbourhoods, where the murder rates can be 10 times the rest of the city. The students that walk through these neighbourhoods every day to get to school often face dangerous situations, which is where the Safe Passage Program helps.

“This has visibly decreased youth violence in these areas,” Williamson told HuffPost.

On any given day, 130 veterans are employed through the program and are dispatched to an area surrounding the corner of 35th street and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Chicago, an intersection for five high schools that have gang affiliations. The veterans also service other dangerous areas, and their presence aids in providing positive interactions free from violence.

The program doubled the number of Safe Passage workers in 2013, after dozens of schools were closed and the commute for many students increased. Violence near Safe Passage routes was also being reported at the time, which the program worked to eliminate by increasing their presence.

The Safe Passage Program works alongside the Chicago Police Department, crossing guards, as well as a number of community outreach programs that support and expand their efforts. Williamson plans to extend the reach of the organization’s positive impact by expanding their presence in the next year.

Bernard Cooks, a Safe Passage Program veteran, told NPR,

“Our intention is to be here until the last day so kids can figure out that, ‘Hey, there’s somebody that actually cares about our safety,’ and they can feel confident going up and down these streets.”

Your Iman is Not Safe in the Hands of Just Your Intellect*

Your Iman is Not Safe in the Hands of Just Your Intellect*

It is said by several esoteric sources that to “Know Thyself” is one of the most important things a person can do. Without self-knowledge, we are absent from ourselves, easily controlled by others, and lose all direction in our lives. So how do we go about actually “knowing ourselves” and reclaiming our lives?

In our head-centric society, most people take the admonition to “KNOW THYSELF” as a primarily intellectual endeavour, with endless books and thinking, all the while neglecting the deeply felt presence of our embodied experience. In our lives, we’ve polarized our intelligence to our heads, often ignoring the “gut instinct” and deeper awareness of the body. To truly “Know Thyself”, one requires a deeper Gnosis, which requires as much awareness as possible, experiencing the full presence of our psychosomatic body-mind, fully sensitive, present, and receptive to life with every sensation we experience as a form of thought.

However, as we see throughout society, our “head-centric” attempt to understand ourselves, and reality, creates an imbalanced, unhealthy confused schism between our ideologies and reality, ourselves and others, as well as our bodies and our minds. While this approach has created some convenience and novelty (at the expense of destroying much of the world), it primarily keeps us divided, hostile, clinging to a “top-down” authoritarian model of reality, and in a perpetual state of existential malaise.

Underneath all the top-down, head-centric, tough, desensitized, and divisive games we play from this cultural indoctrination, the fact is that the intellect alone will not suffice in the deepest sense of ‘Knowing Thyself”. After all, can mere words hold the full beauty of a tearful symphony? Can words substitute for the experience of falling in love? Can words give you the same feeling as the thunderously euphoric release of a rapturous orgasm? Can words adequately touch the eternal grace of nature which holds all things in ephemeral cosmic balance, with its constant cycles of birth and death? Not even close. But the fully embodied presence of Being can, in every moment.

Getting in to the body can be as simple as regularly allowing ourselves to slow down, breathe slowly and deeply in to your stomach and even deeper in to your pelvic bowl, releasing the clenched pelvic muscles, vocalizing and moving as needed, stretching our tightened bodies, and feeling your energy body expand as you breathe. Feel the breath enter in to you from all over your body. Be still and silent until you can hear your own heartbeat. Feel the tightness melt away as your armor dissolves and your dormant senses begin to rejuvenate. Be present with your breath, letting thoughts come and go, but never being attached to them. When this sort of practice becomes embodied in our daily relationship to our sacred selves, you will begin to awaken the inherent embodied wisdom of your full presence and deeper gnosis. This is only the beginning of the process with a few short suggestions, which will help you go deeper more rapidly with regular practice. These deeper layers of awareness are already in you, awaiting your conscious care to nurture them back to the foreground of your awareness.

The most intimate, real, and authentic parts of you are ecstatically invigorating and deeply ever-present, yet they are constantly dulled by culture’s loudly indoctrinated obsession to try and confine life, and ourselves, in to tiny, “clean”, labelled boxes of logical organization of thought. Our sovereign authenticity requires a willingness to surrender control of our intellectualized notions of “what should be” and allowing the vulnerable, spontaneous “messiness” of pure being to emerge. While logical constructs serve an important purpose in “DOING”, we are too often polarized towards their rigidity and we lose sight of what’s most fundamentally important- BEING.

When we integrate the two polarities, however, doing no longer requires “hustle” and “struggle”. Our “Doing” comes from our “Being”, and effort becomes effortless. We act not from the conditioned constructs of our identity, but from ourselves in the present moment in harmony with our environment and greater awareness of the world. This embodied connection, which is to be experienced as fully as possible, with all its ineffable joy, sadness, silliness, passion, fear, presence, wonder, and love, is the essence of what it means to truly “Know Thyself”.

For an even deeper look in to what it means to “Know Thyself”, please watch the following short, yet in-depth video. You’ll be glad you did!

Saudi warplanes have targeted a number of areas across Yemen for the third day since a U.N.-brokered ceasefire went into force.

Yemen’s al-Masirah television network said Saudi jets bombarded the Dhubab district of Ta’izz Province as well as the Sirwah and Jebel Hilan districts of Ma’rib Province early on Wednesday.

According to the report, Saudi-backed militants also launched mortar attacks on the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, and in the province of Jawf.

Pro-Saudi forces further carried out missile attacks in the Yemeni provinces of Shabwah, Lahij and Dhale despite the truce that took effect at midnight (2100 GMT) on Sunday.

The truce was announced by the U.N. special envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed as a step to calm the situation ahead of negotiations between the warring sides scheduled to be held in Kuwait on April 18.

The Houthi Ansarullah movement on Monday recorded 39 violations of the truce by the Saudis and their allies, including attacks in Ta’izz and the central province of Baida. They said Saudi warplanes also flew sorties over several areas of Yemen.

Saudi officials responded by describing the breaches as “minor,” accusing the Houthis of carrying out attacks on forces loyal to Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, Yemen’s resigned president who enjoys support from Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia has been waging a war on Yemen since late March 2015 in a bid to reinstate Hadi and undermine the Houthi movement, which took over state matters after Hadi resigned.

Over 9,400 Yemenis, including 4,000 women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.

Yemenis, in return, have been carrying out retaliatory attacks on the pro-Saudi forces deployed in the country as well as targets inside Saudi Arabia.

Ten Ways to Prepare for Ramadhan From Now*

Ten Ways to Prepare for Ramadhan From Now*

Thai Women Pray at Pattani MosqueBy Nour Merza

With Ramadhan just around the corner, many of us are looking for ways to make sure that this will be the year we change, writes Nour Merza. With this in mind, here are ten ways to prepare yourself for Ramadhan.

  1. Make the right intention

Beginning right now, make an intention that this Ramadhan will be a time of great spiritual effort and sincerity. To help turn that intention into reality, make checklists of both daily goals for Ramadhan (read a section of Qur’an or a beneficial lecture every day, etc.) and goals for the overall month (visit a home for the elderly, invite two non-Muslim friends for a chance to experience iftar, etc.).

  1. Prepare your body

Make sure you are up to par physically by adjusting the amount and quality of your food intake. Start by eliminating snacks and have smaller meals in the weeks leading up to Ramadhan. Also reduce your caffeine intake so that the lack of your morning coffee or afternoon tea doesn’t debilitate you in the first few days of the holy month. Of course, if you’re fasting during the month of Sha’baan, you’re halfway there.

  1. Review all medical situations before Ramadhan

Make sure to get your medical business in order before Ramadhan arrives. If you suffer from a particular illness, check with a doctor, preferably one who understands the importance of fasting, on whether fasting is a reasonable option for you. If you are taking medication, ask your doctor if you can take your doses during non-fasting hours instead of during the day. Also, check if there are options to take your medication via injection instead of orally, as in the Hanafi school injections do not break your fast.

  1. Observe voluntary fasts

Voluntary (nafl) fasts are a great way to help prepare the mind, body and soul for Ramadhan. If you can do it, follow the Prophetic sunnah and fast the month of Sha’baan, which comes just before Ramadhan. If that proves too difficult, try to implement some of these other sunnahs: fasting on Mondays and Thursdays, or fasting on the ‘white days’ of each Islamic month: the 13th, 14th and 15th.

  1. Increase Qur’an recitation

Many people aim to do a complete reading of the Qur’an at least once during Ramadhan. If you don’t have a habit of reading the Qur’an daily, take this as an opportunity to incorporate that habit into your life. This will enable you to read longer sections of the book during Ramadan. Even if doing a complete reading of the Qur’an during Ramadhan is too difficult, making a habit of reading one page or even a few verses a day will bring many blessings during the holy month and afterwards, as the Prophet (pbuh) said: “The most beloved of actions to Allah are the most consistent ones, even if in little amount.”

  1. Perform extra prayers

If you have no missed obligatory prayers to make up, start to pray voluntary sunnah prayers to prepare yourself for the extra prayers that take place in Ramadhan. If you do have missed obligatory prayers, use the time you would give to the sunnah prayers to make some of them up. Don’t feel that you are missing out on the opportunity to do voluntary sunnah, because God says in the famous Hadith Jibril, “My servant draws near to Me by nothing more beloved to Me than that which I have made obligatory on him.”

  1. Give charity

Use the weeks leading up to Ramadhan to increase your acts of charity, be that in the form of giving money to needy people or worthy causes. These could be anything from sponsoring a Syrian refugee family, to  supporting scholars and students of sacred knowledge through SeekersHub’s #SpreadLight campaign. Giving charity is a way to purify your wealth, and you can enter the month of Ramadhan in a greater state of purity. It also opens doors for great good in your life, for the Prophet (pbuh) has told us, “Allah says, ‘Spend, O son of Adam, you will also be spent on.’”

  1. Engage in service (khidma)

Spend some time before Ramadhan to find a local charity or community service opportunity to work with, whether it be in an Islamic environment or in the wider community. If you begin well before Ramadhan starts, you will adjust to the environment before you begin fasting, so that you can explain to co-workers  why you can’t join them for a coffee break or a meal.

Islam says the body through the mind!

  1. Focus on your character

Imam al-Ghazali discusses the inner dimensions of the fast in his Revival of the Religious Sciences , which you can observe before Ramadan arrives. He mentioned that one must learn to fast with all the limbs, from all that harms the heart. You can, for example, avoid certain television shows to keep the eyes from seeing nudity, leave particular conversations to keep the ears from hearing foul language, and control the ego to keep the tongue from argument or backbiting. The inner fast is among the most important aspects of fasting Ramadhan and is often more difficult than the physical fast from food, water and sexual relations, so the earlier you begin to practice this, the better.

  1. Organize your life to minimize waste, overconsumption and the ills that come with this

One of the major concerns about how Muslims practice Ramadhan today is the high level of overconsumption and waste that takes place during the holy month – a reality which is completely antithetical to the Prophetic tradition. Imam Zaid Shakir and others have spoken about ‘greening’ Ramadhan as practiced today in the Muslim community, while Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad has suggested that Muslims use Ramadhan to support ethical, fair-trade companies.

Imam Zaid’s mosque in Oakland, California offers a great model for doing this. With a little bit of extra organization and commitment, communal iftars are served on borrowed crockery and silverware (from friends, neighbors or a local Muslim restaurant) instead of their disposable variation. Washable handclothes are used instead of paper towels. The amount of trash saved by these actions – especially over the course of the month – is enormous, and embodies the Prophetic example of being, as the Qur’an describes, “a mercy to all the worlds.”
