|Holder pleased with team’s progress Cache Translate Page|
Captain Jason Holder says he is pleased with the development shown by West Indies ahead of the World Cup and hopes to use the Tri-Nations Series in Ireland to put the finishing touches on preparations for the showpiece.
Against all odds, the Windies twice came from behind to draw their five-match one-day series against world number one, England, producing several outstanding performances throughout.
West Indies will come together again in May for their next ODI series involving Ireland and Bangladesh, a period which Holder believes will be integral.
“If I look at our performances, we were pretty pleased with them but we're still down at [number nine] so we just need to improve on that,” the all-rounder said.
“There are a lot of points to be had in the World Cup. We've got a series before the World Cup in Ireland so hopefully, we can gather some momentum going into the World Cup and gather some more points in the World Cup.”
Overall, West Indies exceeded expectations against England, especially in the Test series where they stunned the visitors by massive margins in the opening two matches, to regain the Wisden Trophy with a Test to spare.
In the ODIs, the batting proved inspiring, with the hosts twice scoring in excess of 350. In the fourth match, they tallied a Windies record 389 in pursuit of 419 at the Grenada National Stadium.
West Indies have been given little chance at the World Cup, which runs from May 30 to July 14, but Holder remained upbeat about the side going forward.
“I'm pretty pleased as skipper, it's just for us to keep building as a side,” he pointed out.
“There were lots of positives throughout the entire series and lots that we can take away from the series, and a lot of learning that we can take away. I think we have all to play for in the future.”

|Gonsalves hails LIAT rescue ‘success’ Cache Translate Page|
A financial rescue for cash-strapped regional carrier LIAT appears on the horizon - along with plans for yet another restructuring - following marathon talks at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, which ended just minutes before midnight on Monday.
Speaking to Barbados TODAY immediately after the meeting, chairman of the majority shareholding governments of LIAT, Dr Ralph Gonsalves, gave the impression that the shareholders were close to securing buy-in from the airline’s unions, even though it would call for some sacrifice on their part.
The Vincentian prime minister said: “Our meeting lasted over four hours with the union leaders, the management, the shareholders and other officials and I think we made progress and we ended the meeting all holding hands and singing ‘Bind us together, Lord”.
“I think everybody is binding to an amended restructuring plan where there is burden sharing and the employees are prepared to bear some burdens.”
Prime Minister Mia Mottley and Antiguan prime minister Gaston Browne, representing two of the four majority shareholders, attended the talks.
The workers were represented by the Leeward Islands Airline Pilots’ Association (LIALPA) and the Barbados Workers’ Union, whose representatives declined to comment until they first reported to their members.
But according to Dr Gonsalves, the extent to which workers would be expected to sacrifice is still to be determined.
He said: “The extent of what is to be borne we will know in a couple of days when they [the unions] talk to their members, but we had a very positive response,” he said.
The LIAT chairman also categorically dismissed as false, social media reports of plans to replace LIAT Chief Executive Officer Julie Reifer Jones. “I have not heard of anything. I am the chairman and if that were even on the cards somebody will tell me,” he stressed.
The Barbados meeting comes as Caribbean countries are being asked to contribute a total of $10.8 million (US$5.4 million) in emergency funding needed to keep the airline in the sky. At the same time, 11 destinations have been given until Friday, March 15, to respond to the airline’s minimal revenue guarantee (MRG) proposals.
Gonsalves said that countries, including the four major shareholders – Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica and St. Vincent and the Grenadines – along with Grenada, have agreed to contribute to the emergency fund.
Barbados, which has the 116 weekly departures, the highest by LIAT, is being asked to contribute $3.2 million (US$1.614 million), while Antigua and Barbuda, with 69 weekly departures, is to contribute $1.9 million (US$960,310).
Dominica is being asked to contribute $695,876 (US$347,938) in light of its 25 weekly flights, St. Vincent and the Grenadines with 52 departures per week will contribute $1.4 million (US$723,711) while Grenada, which has 35 LIAT departures per week, is being asked to contribute $974,226 (US$487,113).
In a statement following the first round of shareholder talks, held in the Vincentian capital, Kingstown, over the weekend, Dr Gonsalves made it clear that these five countries constitute an “A Group”. He added that while no other government has come forward in the face of the crisis, the shareholder governments are targetting a further three destination governments, namely Guyana (US$292,280), St. Kitts and Nevis (US$389,691) and St. Lucia (US$584,536). email@example.com
|Sodomy Laws in the US and around the World Cache Translate Page|
A sodomy law is a law that defines certain sexual acts as crimes. The precise sexual acts meant by the term sodomy are rarely spelled out in the law, but are typically understood by courts to include any sexual act deemed to be "unnatural" or immoral. Sodomy typically includes anal sex, oral sex and bestiality. In practice, sodomy laws have rarely been enforced against heterosexual couples (Wikipedia)
Sodomy arrest sparks controversy… 34 years ago
Michael Hardwick is arrested for sodomy after a police officer observes him having sex with another man in his own bedroom in Georgia. Although the district attorney eventually dropped the charges, Hardwick decided to challenge the constitutionality of Georgia’s law.
“John and Mary Doe,” who joined in Hardwick’s suit against Michael Bowers, the attorney general of Georgia, maintained that the Georgia law “chilled and deterred” them from engaging in certain types of sex in their home. But in 1986, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Bowers v. Hardwick, ruling by a 5-4 vote that states could continue to treat certain types of consensual sex as criminal acts.
Apparently, Justice Byron White had characterized the issue not as the right to privacy in one’s own bedroom, but rather as the right to commit sodomy. Viewed in this narrow manner, it was no surprise that he was unable to find such a clause in the Constitution. Justice Lewis Powell, who also voted to uphold the law, later called his vote a mistake.
In June 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a Texas law under which two men had been arrested for having consensual sex at home. The 6-3 Lawrence v. Texas decision reversed the infamous 1986 Bowers decision and finally dealt a death blow to sodomy laws throughout the country.
In its landmark ruling Lawrence v. Texas, the Supreme Court ruled that anti-sodomy laws —sometimes referred to as “crimes against nature” laws — are unconstitutional. But 12 states continue to keep such laws on their books. Of 14 states that had anti-sodomy laws, only Montana and Virginia have repealed theirs since the Supreme Court ruling, while anti-sodomy laws remain on the books in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.
You may believe anti-sodomy laws are not harmful because they can’t be enforced. But they are an important symbol of homophobia for those who oppose LGBT rights. What’s more, the laws create ambiguity for police officers, who may not be aware they are unconstitutional.
If a policeman looks it up, he will see that sodomy is a violation of Louisiana state law, for example, according to Marjorie Esman, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana.
Sodomy Laws around the World
In the recent years, sodomy related laws have been repealed or judicially struck down in all of Europe, North America, and South America, except for Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.
There have never been Western-style sodomy related laws in the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, North Korea, South Korea, or Vietnam. Additionally, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia were part of the French colony of 'Indochine'; so if there had been any laws against male homosexual acts in those countries, they would have been dismantled by French colonial authorities, since male homosexual acts have been legal in France and throughout the French Empire since the issuing of the aforementioned French Revolutionary penal code in 1791.
This trend among Western nations has not been followed in all other regions of the world (Africa, some parts of Asia, Oceania and even western countries in the Caribbean Islands), where sodomy often remains a serious crime. For example, male homosexual acts, at least in theory, can result in life imprisonment in Barbados and Guyana.
In Africa, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Mauritania, Sudan, and some parts of Nigeria and Somalia. Male and sometimes female homosexual acts are minor to major criminal offences in many other African countries; for example, life imprisonment is a prospective penalty in Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Uganda. A notable exception is South Africa, where same-sex marriage is legal.
In Asia, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen; but anti-sodomy laws have been repealed in Israel (which recognizes but does not perform same-sex marriages), Japan, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, and Thailand. Additionally, life imprisonment is the formal penalty for male homosexual acts in Bangladesh, the Maldives, Myanmar, Pakistan, and Qatar.

|The Battle for the Future of U.S. Foreign Policy Has Begun Cache Translate Page|
Ted Galen Carpenter
There are signs of growing congressional inconsistency, if not incoherence, regarding the authority of the president in foreign affairs. The legislature seeks to interfere on issues that are the president’s responsibility while still failing to fulfill its own constitutionally mandated responsibility regarding the war power.
An incident of misplaced assertiveness took place in January when the House of Representatives passed the NATO Support Act prohibiting the executive branch from using any funds to facilitate U.S. withdrawal from the Alliance in any way. The legislation appears to bar a drawdown of U.S. troop levels in Europe and any effort to terminate U.S. membership in NATO.
Enacting the legislation seemed weirdly premature. President Donald Trump has not even taken any substantive actions that might diminish U.S. participation in NATO affairs. He has merely criticized the allies for their lack of burden-sharing in the collective defense effort and (correctly) suggested that NATO itself might be “obsolete” given how much the European and global security environments have changed since the Alliance’s birth at the dawn of the Cold War against the Soviet Union.
The constitutionality of such restrictions also is highly suspect. The Constitution makes the president the steward of foreign affairs. Presidents historically have enjoyed wide latitude regarding the interpretation, execution, and even termination of U.S. treaties. Chief executives have enjoyed even greater latitude regarding troop deployments, especially in noncombat situations, and the nature, extent, and duration of military commitments to implement treaties or other agreements. Congressional interference in the form of the NATO Support Act would be truly revolutionary-and not in a good way. It is a transparent congressional attempt to usurp the president’s rightful constitutional authority and seek to micromanage U.S. foreign policy.
The NATO issue is not the only case in which congressional efforts are underway to seize control of foreign-policy decisions from the executive. A faction in both houses is now pushing a measure that would prevent the White House from failing to honor U.S. obligations under the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty until it expires in February 2021. Unlike in the case of NATO, the president has taken tangible steps against the INF. After accusing Russia of violating its obligations under the treaty, Trump announced that the United States intended to withdraw from the INF. It should be stressed that the issue is not whether the president’s policies on NATO or the INF are wise or misguided; the relevant issue is whether the Constitution invests the executive or Congress with the authority to make those decisions.
Greater congressional assertiveness on such issues is especially odd given how readily Congress has abandoned its own explicit constitutional authority to control the war power. Even as legislators moved to restrict Trump regarding NATO and the INF, there was no effective campaign to prevent him from implementing his decision to keep at least two hundred troops in Syria, despite the continuing lack of any congressional authorization for U.S. military involvement in that combat zone.
The bipolar nature of congressional behavior is striking. Congress continues the long pattern of abdicating its responsibility when it comes to decisions about whether to involve the republic in armed conflicts. The authors of the Constitution specifically gave the war power to Congress, but that branch has habitually deferred to the president since Harry Truman’s presidential war in Korea in 1950.
Throughout the succeeding decades, occupants of the Oval Office have either bypassed Congress entirely or sought vacuous “blank check” congressional resolutions. The 1964 Gulf of Tonkin Resolution and the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) following the 9/11 terrorist attacks are examples of the latter. Lyndon Johnson’s 1965 invasion of the Dominican Republic, Ronald Reagan’s 1983 invasion of Grenada, Barack Obama’s air war in Libya, and the current U.S. military actions in Syria and Yemen are examples of the former. Bill Clinton probably deserves the award for the most brazen contempt of the congressional war power. Not only did he launch the Kosovo war without congressional approval, but he defied a House vote against giving him such authorization.
The recent vote of both houses to terminate U.S. participation in the Saudi Arabian-led war in Yemen is an encouraging step toward reviving the war power. But only time will tell if that effort is the beginning of a worthwhile trend. The successful effort of the Senate GOP leadership to prevent approval of legislation requiring an explicit AUMF for the Syria mission suggests that the Yemen vote was an outlier and that congressional abdication of the war power likely will continue in most cases.
Yet even as Congress evades its responsibilities in that most vital area, it is escalating its meddling and attempted micromanagement of other elements of foreign policy. For Congress to seek unprecedented, unconstitutional power with respect to nonmilitary aspects of foreign affairs while it continues abdicating the war power is shameful. Instead of trying to dictate policy on the INF and preserve the organizational dinosaur known as NATO against even modest reforms that the president might wish to implement, Congress needs to do a much better job of tending to its own duties and constitutional responsibilities.Ted Galen Carpenter, a senior fellow in security studies at the Cato Institute and a contributing editor at the National Interest, is the author of twelve books and more than 750 articles on foreign affairs.
