NBA Players Take On The NYPD

Thabo Sefolosha

Think Progress

The NBA Players Association is still conducting its own investigation into the incident outside a New York City club that left Atlanta Hawks guard Thabo Sefolosha under arrest. But based on video of the event, the union’s top official hasn’t seen much to persuade her that police officers’ treatment of Sefolosha, who suffered a broken leg during the arrest, was warranted.

“The best I can tell is that there’s no video at all that anybody has seen that would justify the way the police treated him,” Michele Roberts, the NBPA’s executive director, told NBA.com’s David Aldridge on Sunday. Though Roberts “didn’t want to say too much” because of the pending investigation, Aldridge reported, that is the strongest statement from Roberts or other union officials about Sefolosha’s injury and arrest.

Sefolosha and teammate Pero Antic were arrested outside 1OAK following the stabbing of another NBA player, Indiana’s Chris Copeland, inside the New York City nightclub. Both players were charged with obstructing governmental administration and disorderly conduct, and according to NYPD accounts, Sefolosha had instigated an altercation with police and resisted arrest. But other accounts, including one from a Sports Illustrated source who said police actually provoked the incident, have painted a different picture, and two videos published by TMZ show what appears to be a much different situation than NYPD officers have described.

Sefolosha and Antic were not immediately outside the nightclub, according to accounts, and the second of the two videos appears to show Sefolosha urging officers to “relax” before they tackled the 6-foot-5 NBA veteran to the pavement. The video also shows an officer striking Sefolosha with a club as onlookers yell for them to stop. Sefolosha has said in a statement that the broken leg and ligament damage that will keep him out of the NBA playoffs, which began Saturday, happened during the incident and that police were responsible.

Sefolosha’s run-in with NYPD comes at the end of a season in which NBA players were among the most outspoken athletes on police violence and abuse of black men. Derrick Rose, LeBron James, and other players wore “I Can’t Breathe” shirts before games in December to protest the death of Eric Garner, who died after an NYPD officer put him in a headlock.

Now, the attention has turned to one of their own, a point that makes it even “more personal,” Brooklyn Nets guard Jarrett Jack told Bleacher Report. And as players across the league, including Sefolosha’s Atlanta teammates, have expressed support for him since news of the injury, they have linked it to larger problems of police treatment of black men across the country.

“I think a lot of people fear black males, so it’s scary,” Jackson, Sefolosha’s former teammate, said last week, according to the Detroit Free Press. “It’s trying times right now. Everybody’s trying to bring social order back, and hopefully we can get a better world.

“I’m not gonna lie, it’s kinda unfair at times as a black male,” he continued. “Only thing that I feel protects us is probably the celebrity status and being an NBA player, but nobody’s off limits when you see what happens to a former teammate like Thabo.”

“It’s a point of concern,” Atlanta forward Al Horford told ESPN of Sefolosha’s case and the current focus on police abuse. “A light is being shed on it, and I’m sure some things are going to change. They need to for society to be better.”

The NYPD is conducting an internal review of the incident, and the NBA, like the players union, has launched its own investigation into it. NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Friday that the league’s job was to play “fact-finder” in looking into Sefolosha’s injury and that it didn’t want to pre-judge the outcome.

“He’s a player in this league, and we want to help him and assist him in any way we can. And our way of assisting him is to get the fullest understanding we can from what happened that night,” Silver said.

In a piece on Sunday The New York Times said it, The Washington Post, and Fox News had “exclusive agreements” with Schweizer to “pursue story lines in the book. In a statement to TPM, Fox denied any type of exclusive deal.

Here’s the statement from Fox News executive vice president Michael Clemente:

We have secured the television exclusive to report on the forthcoming book, Clinton Cash, as all major news outlets have done for decades with a multitude of books. There is no exclusive arrangement to ‘pursue story lines’ — we have conducted our own independent research and reporting on the contents of the book. This was the same process we used in securing an advance copy of 13 Hours and Things That Matter, which were both the subject of one-hour FOX News documentaries.

In an email to TPM, NYT Washington bureau chief Carolyn Ryan said “We had access to some material in the book, but we wanted to do our own reporting.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson: Politicians Denying Science Is ‘Beginning Of The End Of An Informed Democracy’

NG_StarTalk_104

Think Progress

What will you be doing on Monday, 4/20, at 11 p.m.?

Perhaps watching the premiere of acclaimed astrophysicist and author Neil deGrasse Tyson’s new show StarTalk. Tyson, who may be best known for hosting the reboot of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos series in 2014, will now be appearing weekly on the National Geographic Channel in what may be the first late-night science talk show. Along with a trusty cast of comedians and science-minded folks like Bill Nye, Tyson hopes the adaptation of his popular podcast to a broadcast format will make getting a regular dose of science as pain-free as possible. He thinks that by embedding it between pop culture discussions and entertaining asides, the science will go down easy, and even leave you wanting more. And he’s right.

The first episode features an interview with George Takei, who requires no introduction to any Star Trek fans: he played Hikaru Sulu, helmsman of the USS Enterprise. Takei has also become known for his activism surrounding human rights. Other guests this season include President Jimmy Carter, director Christopher Nolan, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, astronaut Chris Hadfield, and Ariana Huffington.

ThinkProgress was lucky enough to snag a few minutes of Tyson’s time to ask him about his new show, his feelings on how the media covers science, what we can do about climate change, and more.

Who is StarTalk trying to reach specifically?

We are trying to reach people who don’t know they like science, and people who know that they don’t like science. We are doing this through the use of three pillars: science, pop culture, and comedy. Who doesn’t like listening to a great comedian? Who doesn’t like occasionally, whether they’ll admit it or not, picking up an issue of People Magazine and checking out the latest stars. I think it might even be hardwired; seeking out people who get the adoring attention of others.

If you explore all the ways that science falls into that then you get people’s interest for free, because the pop culture got them there, and then they learn about the science as part of it. There is this eternal golden braid that we’re attempting to weave.

What was the reasoning for having the first episode feature George Takei?

There were other guests we had that could mislead you into thinking what future episodes would be like. For example, if we presented Richard Dawkins first, you might think StarTalk is about interviewing scientists, but we hardly ever interview scientists. We wanted a representative show that balanced science, pop culture and comedy and the Takei show did that in exactly the way we aim to do every week, whether or not we succeed. My stand-up comedian co-host is also a trekkie.

You recently spoke about who to blame for the state of the climate change debate in the U.S., the electorate or the politicians. Can you elaborate on that?

If you want to lean in a political way because that’s your politics, you should do that based on an objective truth rather than cherry-picking science before you even land at an objective truth. You can’t just cherry-pick data and choose what is true about the world and what isn’t.

So I’m not blaming the electorate in that sense. I’m blaming an educational system that is not positioned to educate an electorate such that they can make informed decisions in this, the 21st century, where informed decisions based on objective scientific truths will play a fundamental role in what kind of society we create for ourselves.

When can we expect you to run for public office?

I was asked that by the New York Times a few years ago when there was some impasse in Congress and they did a fun thing and found a set of people who were not traditionally associated with elected office and asked them what they would do if they were President. They were looking for ideas that maybe hadn’t surfaced yet and could possibly solve the problem. So I responded to that and it’s on my website. It’s pretty clear where I stand on the issue and you can quote it with abandon — provided the headline you put above it is accurate.

From Tyson’s “If I Were President” post:

When you’re scientifically literate, the world looks different to you. It’s a particular way of questioning what you see and hear. When empowered by this state of mind, objective realities matter. These are the truths of the world that exist outside of whatever your belief system tells you.

One objective reality is that our government doesn’t work, not because we have dysfunctional politicians, but because we have dysfunctional voters. As a scientist and educator, my goal, then, is not to become President and lead a dysfunctional electorate, but to enlighten the electorate so they might choose the right leaders in the first place.

The CIA’s Latest Mission: Improving Diversity

CIA Headquarters |David Burnett—Pool/Getty Images

TIME

A weapons analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency, Lisa was sorting resumes with a colleague when something shocking happened.

Lisa, who is black, was helping her white coworker find the best applicants for overseas posts, which are considered prestigious within the agency and can lead to more important jobs down the line. Lisa was midway through her own overseas posting and had already seen how it helped her career.

But looking at the resumes, her coworker casually said that she would not hire a black man.

“She told me that if there is a white man — doesn’t matter how capable the black man is — I’m picking the white man,” recalled Lisa. (At the request of the CIA, TIME agreed to withhold last names of agency employees, many of whom work undercover.) “As a minority, you know that, but to have someone tell you that? It’s telling.”

Like workplaces across the country, the CIA is striving to improve the diversity of its staff. And just like other companies, the agency nicknamed The Company has found that progress comes in fits and starts.

In interviews with more than a dozen black officers, TIME found that while the CIA has made diversity a top priority, it still struggles to recruit African-Americans and promote them to higher positions.

Diversity is not just important for its own sake. As an intelligence agency, the CIA lives and dies on its ability to interpret complex data about foreign countries. Black agents noted multiple times when their unique perspective as a minority within the United States led them to a breakthrough in understanding a foreign conflict.

The agency’s top leaders agree.

“Diversity is critical to the success of CIA’s mission. We need a workforce as diverse as the world we cover,” CIA Director John Brennan said in a statement to TIME. “CIA has come a long way in broadening the demographic of its senior ranks, but we still have significant work to do.”

To that end, Brennan launched the Diversity in Leadership Study to examine the current demographics of the agency’s senior ranks. A similar study on women, who make up 46% of the CIA workforce, was released in 2013.

A senselessly cruel policy

Monday 20th April 2015

HOW many more desperate people have to drown in the Mediterranean before the European Union and its member states rethink their callous sink-or-swim policy towards refugees?

Around 3,500 men, women and children perished last year and the weekend tragedy has pushed this year’s total up to half that already and we’re still in April.

The EU ended its Mare Nostrum rescue operation last October after some states claimed in was unaffordable.

The operation cost just under £10 million a month, deploying rescue vessels across the Mediterranean, whereas its successor Triton, run by the EU border agency Frontex, has a monthly budget of less than a third of that.

ROME — Emergency services mounted a major search and rescue operation Sunday north of Libya after a ship containing hundreds of migrants trying to reach Italy capsized in the Mediterranean.

Italy’s ANSA news agency said an estimated 700 people were aboard and only 28 people had been rescued.

Barbara Molinario, spokeswoman for the United Nations refugee agency, said the Italian Coast Guard operation is continuing and the number of victims is not known.

“It’s clear that a boat overturned and there are people missing, but on numbers (dead or alive) it’s too soon to tell,” she said.

The capsizing comes amid a wave of migrants trying to leave Libya for Italian shores. They seek to take advantage of calmer seas and warm weather to make the dangerous crossing on smugglers’ boats.

The Week

1.Hundreds of migrants feared dead in Mediterranean shipwreck 
An estimated 500 to 700 people went missing on Sunday after a boat ferrying migrants to Italy capsized north of Libya in the Mediterranean Sea. The 65-foot-long fishing boat sent a distress call overnight, but when another vessel approached the migrants huddled to the far side of the ship, causing it to capsize, according to the Italian Coast Guard. Close to 20 ships raced to rescue survivors, pulling 28 people from the water so far. Roughly 900 people are believed to have died this year trying to make the crossing.

2.FBI admits to exaggerating forensic hair evidence for two decades
Almost every examiner in the FBI’s hair analysis unit repeatedly overhyped evidence to aid prosecutors over a two-decade period ending in 2000, according to The Washington Post. The finding comes from an ongoing review of cases conducted by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Innocence Project in conjunction with the federal government. Per the review, 26 of 28 forensic hair analysts overstated evidence in 95 percent of the 268 trials examined so far. The FBI and Justice Department acknowledged the errors, saying in a statement they were “committed to ensuring that affected defendants are notified of past errors and that justice is done in every instance.”

3.Republican presidential hopefuls woo New Hampshire voters
A slew of declared and potential Republican presidential candidates trekked to New Hampshire this weekend for the two-day Republican Leadership Summit. Close to 20 prospective candidates — ranging from establishment types like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Jeb Bush, to bottom-tier hopefuls like Donald Trump and John Bolton — used their stage time to discuss policy, ding the president, and assail presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “When Hillary Clinton travels, there’s going to need to be two planes,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said. “One for her and her entourage, and one for her baggage.”

4.Poland summons U.S. ambassador over FBI head’s Holocaust remark
Poland on Sunday summoned the U.S. ambassador to protest FBI Director James Comey’s recent comment casting some blame on Poland for the Holocaust. “The murderers and accomplices of Germany, and Poland, and Hungary, and so many, many other places didn’t do something evil,” Comey said in a speech last week, which was then adapted as an opinion piece in The Washington Post. “They convinced themselves it was the right thing to do, the thing they had to do.” Poland’s ambassador to the U.S. called the comment “unacceptable” and a “falsification of history.”

5.Senior Revolutionary Guard rejects weapons inspections
A high-ranking member of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard on Saturdayinsisted weapons inspectors would be barred from visiting military sites under any final nuclear agreement. “Iran will not become a paradise for spies,” Gen. Hossein Salami said. “We will not roll out the red carpet for the enemy,” he added, saying that inspections would amount to Tehran “selling out.” Under a framework agreement reached last month between the U.S., Iran, and five world powers, international inspectors would be granted access to Iran’s nuclear facilities.

6.Putin walks back anti-U.S. rhetoric
Speaking on Russia’s state-run Rossiya channel on Saturday, President Vladimir Putin admitted that Moscow and Washington have “disagreements,” but that “there is something that unites us, that forces us to work together,” according to Reuters‘ translation of the remarks. “I mean general efforts directed at making the world economy more democratic, measured and balanced, so that the world order is more democratic,” Putin said. “We have a common agenda.” Putin’s comments came two days after he told a Russian phone-in show that the United States wants “not allies, but vassals,” and is behaving like the former Soviet Union in its overreaching foreign policy.

7.ISIS claims to kill Ethiopian Christians
The Islamic State on Sunday released a video purporting to show the execution of two groups of captured Ethiopian Christians. The 29-minute video claims to show ISIS affiliates at two separate locations in Libya beheading or shooting to death prisoners, though a death toll was not immediately clear. Though the video has yet to be authenticated, it closely resembled previous ISIS propaganda videos depicting executions.

8.California water board releases revised drought restrictions
California’s State Water Resources Control Board on Saturday released modified proposed conservation restrictions, adjusting the planned cuts based on water-saving efforts already underway. A former draft divided water suppliers into four tiers; the new framework places them into one of nine tiers — where water usage must be cut by anywhere from 8 percent to 36 percent — to “more equitably allocate” the restrictions. Water suppliers that do not meet their cuts could face fines of up to $10,000 per day. The board is expected to vote on the revised framework proposal in early May.

Sunday Talk: Small fish in a big pond

Daily Kos

This week, Marco Rubio—the thirstylittle senator from Poland Spring (by way of Cuba)—dove head-first into the kiddie pool of Republican candidates for president.

It was a risky move, given the pool’s depth (read: lack thereof).

Obviously, he was hoping to make a big splash with his announcement—and he would’ve gotten away with ittoo, if it weren’t for those meddling burritos.

Unbeknownst to Rubio, shortly before he took the stage, Hillary Clinton and her gang of corporate crime-fighters had stopped for lunch at Chipotle.

This caused a tidal wave of breathless coverage to form, and Rubio’s message quickly drowned in its wake.

But, really, that’s just the tip of the iceberg, as far as his problems go; beneath it all, he’s just not that impressive.

Meet the Press: Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R); Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D); Sen.Mike Lee (R-UT); Roundtable: Former White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod, Republican Strategist Steve Schmidt, Helene Cooper (New York Times) and Kathleen Parker (Washington Post).Face the Nation: Sen.
