News: Day of Silence, Bald Eagle, Simon Cowell, Colorado

road.jpg The Colorado Senate approved legislation protecting gays and lesbians from workplace discrimination on a 20-15 party-line vote Monday. This is the fifth straight year lawmakers have attempted to extend the protections: "The measure has been vetoed by former Republican Gov. Bill Owens or has died in GOP-controlled committees. This time, Democrats hope they have an ally in Democratic Gov. Bill Ritter."

Baldeagleroad.jpg Bald Eagle to be de-listed from the federal list of threatened and endangered species in June: "Environmentalists and scientists widely support the move because of the species' success since a 1972 ban on the pesticide DDT and since it was protected by the Endangered Species Act in 1978. Still, many eagle experts are worried, warning that the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, the law that will protect bald eagles after delisting, does not adequately shield the nesting trees and feeding perches eagles depend on."

road.jpg Climate change and New York City, a forecast: "It’s really the prospect of the unraveling of many things as we know them. I don’t think we’re going to know until it happens. But the point of no return is actually way before the actual event."

Shhhroad.jpg Shhh! Those voices that you don't hear are the sounds of thousands of students across America: "Please understand my reasons for not speaking today. I am participating in the Day of Silence, a national youth movement protesting the silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies in schools. My deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by harassment, prejudice, and discrimination. I believe that ending the silence is the first step toward fighting these injustices. Think about the voices you are not hearing today. What are you going to do to end the silence?"

road.jpg UK group awarded grant to produce series of films on homophobic bullying in Britain's rural areas: "We've wanted to set up this project for a long time and now we can really get going with this funding.

They are usually being bullied in school for being different because teenagers are trying their best to fit in."

The New York Daily News reports on some comments he made to Sean Hannity about Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice: "[Americans] want someone that knows how to negotiate, that knows the art of the deal. In all fairness, I see Condoleezza Rice - she goes on a plane, she gets off a plane, she waves, she goes there to meet some dictator. ... They talk, she leaves, she waves, the plane takes off. Nothing happens, it's a joke, nothing ever happens. I think she's a very nice woman, but I don't want a nice woman. I want someone that's not necessarily nice." On another note, Trump said of Hillary Clinton: "She is a very capable woman. She has done an amazing job as a senator of New York."
