Reliable information about this case is hard to find because there is a publication ban on the family identity and on discussion of the child's gender change. However here is a reliable report which I am fairly certain is the same case. Even reading the parts available without paying: A B.C. father who has been a vocal critic of his transgender child’s ...

Lincoln county has published this statement: In this Directive there were several exceptions identified recognizing that not everyone could or should wear a face covering: ... People of color who have heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment due to wearing face coverings in public. So yes, they most certainly did.

No, there is currently no such requirement or exception to that requirement. For one week the health guidelines related to masks in Lincoln County, OR included an exception for people of color who were concerned about racial profiling/harassment for wearing a mask. That exception was removed in an update to the directive, and there are currently no ...

Yes. Once you dig through the censorship issues and publication bans, the actual court order says this: It is declared under the Family Law Act that: (a) AB is exclusively entitled to consent to medical treatment for gender dysphoria and to take any necessary legal proceedings in relation to such medical treatment; (b) Pursuant to para. 201(2)(b), AB is ...

Yes, the quoted claims are largely correct. Some of the Constitutional powers mentioned were less slavery-focused than the quote suggests, but they certainly could be used in the ways the quote describes. Article One, section 9 of the Constitution deals with the admission of people into the states: The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the ...

Every version of this story that I see can be traced to a single English language book, which tells it as follows. The Fish Market Gate (Baluq Khaneh Qapusi), as its name indicates, was the headquarters of the palace fishermen, who kept their fishing tackle in a rudely raftered room over the gate and whose fishing station was within watching distance from ...

[intermediate level nuclear waste] is not radiologically dangerous in any realistic way This is false to the point of being irresponsible. If you put a completely legal luminous watch in a barrel containing half a tonne of dirt, that dirt would technically be intermediate-level nuclear waste according to the regulations. If the watch used tritium at the ...

This looks, at best, to be a careless mistake if not an intentional lie. The key problem is that mW/m2 is no longer considered a meaningful standard. Here are the Australian government's current standards on exposure to non-ionizing radiation, adopted in 2002. Here is Table 4 from page 8: This may be where the 10,000 came from. But notice that the unit ...

Does New York actually have stricter voting restrictions than Georgia? Rather than trying to come up with some objective measure of voting restrictions, I'll cover the claims, the regulations, and where NY and Georgia are moving relative to themselves. The claim is a combination of cherry picking, whataboutism, and lies about election security. As we'll see,...

There is a Turkish translation in Latin script of Abdurrahman Efendi's "Topkapi Sarayi Hümayunu" available at this link I don't have time to read the whole thing... The balikhane gate was indeed the one where viziers and other statesmen who had fallen out of grace were sent either for their execution or into exile. (Istanbul Ansiklopedisi, vol. 6, ...

This is not a site for legal advice, but this is generally covered by 11 U.S. Code § 523 which says (a) A discharge under section 727, 1141, 1192, 1228(a), 1228(b), or 1328(b) of this title does not discharge an individual debtor from any debt— ... (8) unless excepting such debt from discharge under this paragraph would impose an undue hardship on the ...

There's a couple things about this claim that seem to be either lacking or completely wrong. First is the law it references. Which one? There's one for the Federal level and one for California, both in 2011-2012. There may be more, but these are the only 2 that could be relevant. The law Since this is specifically stating California, I'll break the law for ...

The Australian government links to a 2018 Dutch study for a standards comparison. Although this study doesn't cover the 5G band, the EU-Australia similarities in the 3G-4G band (right columns) suggest the claim of large differences in the 5G band is probably unreasonable in general (but see end of answer for exceptions). Australia is the 1st below the row ...

This nj.com article implies that it is a legal myth In 228 years, New Jersey's racked up 100 printed volumes of law. Unfortunately, "the bizarre laws are not all in one volume," said Laura Tharney, executive director of the New Jersey Law Revision Commission, so old ones that seem strange today linger. Even more enduring? Our legal myths. "You ...

It seems that all our comments and findings together form a more or less plausible answer to the question. Please, feel free to improve this proto-answer by filling it with your links and the respective details that each one of you found: it seem that we did a great team job together and this answer has to be something that we fill and sign together (if you ...

No. It is very difficult to prove a negative, but if it is a law, it must be written down. If it is written down, one of the hundreds of websites claiming that this is a law could easily point to either the exact law, or the interpretation of a law by a judge. No one ever has.
