    MLB's efforts to find out LGBT team executives. Plus, more Gus Kenworthy.

    in LGBT

    Major League Baseball is recruiting LGBT people for team front offices, and they want you. Billy Bean and MLB exec Wendy Lewis have not been quiet about their efforts to ensure opportunities for out LGBT people to find careers in baseball as they have been reaching out to the community about their upcoming Diversity Business Summit in March. Our article this week highlighted their efforts and introduced people to two current out gay MLB team execs - Orioles' Greg Bader and Nationals' Steve Reed - who have been widely accepted by their teams. How much of an impact do these efforts have? And will that translate into more opportunities?


    When Gus Kenworthy came out on the cover of ESPN The Magazine, he got tons of attention for breaking a barrier in a "bro" sport and doing it as an Olympic medalist. Yet one other pro skier didn't much like how Kenworthy came out and the seeming attention he was drawing to himself for being gay. Is there such thing as too much attention for a gay athlete? And do this other skier's comments show that some teammates might not like the attention a gay athlete receives?

    Trans-Pacific Partnership - The Death of Sovereignty with Meghan Sali

    in Politics

    Trans-Pacific Partnership


    12 nations, 11% of global population, 40% of the global economy, 25% of global imports, 30% of global exports. 800 million people bound by an agreement negotiated in secret from the citizens and almost all elected representatives. Who wrote it then? Trade representatives with multi-national corporate lobbyists and executives at the tables from start to finish.


    A 30 chapter agreement with 5 involving actual trade. Environment. Financial Services. Patents. Copyrights. Intellectual Property. Pharmaceuticals. Health Care. Investment. Labour. Market Access. Procurement. Tobacco. State Owned Enterprises. Biotechnology and GMO's. And a new iron-clad version of the infamous Investor State Dispute Settlement "mechanism" complete with secret tribunals, secret judgements and secret awards. 5,544 pages worth of regulations, schedules, indexes, timetables and LOOPHOLES to empower the most powerful corporations on earth to have veto power say over how signatory nations will live their day-to-day lives. This is the latest method for the mostly American corporate elite to bypass the WTO, exclude and isolate "unfriendly" economies, enslave "freindly" economies and laugh all the way to the bank.


    Protests have been raging in every "partner nation" for years as February 4 nears as the day for "signing" of the agreement in Auckland, New Zealand. There is no opting out of any section or provision unless stated before that signing by any nation. No renegotiation.


    We are joined by Meghan Sali, a digital rights specialist with OpenMedia,org, leading the organization's free expression campaigns. For the past two years, she has been co-ordinating the campaign to shed light on the implications of TPP as they relate to preserving our online rights and building a properous, inclusive digital future.


    Tune in and hear the facts on TPP.
