The body of a missing five-year-old girl has been found in a wooden box filled with cement that her mother was using as a bedside table. Officers discovered Milagros Nazareth Martin's body in the Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires after her concerned father contacted them because he had not seen her for months. The girl's mother, Vanesa Mansilla, has reportedly been charged with "culpable homicide". She is said to have first told the father that she had placed the child in the care of social services because of the poor living conditions in her home. When police turned up to search her house, she reportedly admitted her daughter had died but that she did not know what to do and was "scared". Fearing her other two children, aged three and seven, would be taken from her, she is said to have placed the body in a bag, which was put into a box that was filled with cement taken from a nearby building site. "She used the box with the body inside as a bedside table in her … [Read more...] about Body of girl, 5, found in concrete block used as bedside table by mother in Buenos Aires

The charity boss at the centre of the Buckingham Palace racism row and her six siblings grew up in the 1960s as the "only black family on our road. Ngozi Fulani, now 61, said her parents, who had moved to Britain from Barbados as part of the Windrush generation, "embraced everybody" and never allowed the "barriers we faced outside" to be brought into the house in Kilburn, northwest London. In an interview with Future Hackney, Ms Fulani said her father would take them to house parties because "black people were not allowed" in pubs. She was once "shooed" away by a white teacher at school, while her brothers would "come home with their faces swollen" having been bullied by their peers or attacked by the police, she added. And when her sister gave birth at the age of 17, her white social worker used a racist term to describe her baby. "We were very aware from the get-go that even though we were born here, we were not welcome," she wrote. The interview concluded with Ms … [Read more...] about Who is Ngozi Fulani – the domestic abuse charity founder subjected to racism at Buckingham Palace?

BOSTON — In its spirit, the arrival of Prince William and Princess Catherine of Wales to Boston on Tuesday landed somewhere between Kabuki and comic operetta. Disembarking from the plane that brought her here, the former Kate Middleton wore a slim pantsuit, a whopping pair of sapphire earrings and the stilettos that are her version of Crocs. For a later City Hall appearance, she would change into a tartan Burberry frock, an Alexander McQueen coat, more modest earrings by Shyla London and further spike heels. The prince was his wife’s visual foil in a two-button suit of dark navy with a single vent, a white spread collar shirt and a figured necktie. Notice from the royals’ Kensington Palace offices alerted the press that their highnesses were traveling to the United States to promote their environmental innovation initiative, the Earthshot Prize — headed by Hannah Jones, the former chief sustainability officer at Nike — and that they “won’t be distracted by other things.” Their … [Read more...] about A Royal Visit, at a Careful Distance

Moore lived with her son and two grandsons, who were first cousins, not brothers - failing the city's narrow test for which family members could live together. In Moore v. City of East Cleveland (1977), the Supreme Court struck down the ordinance, noting the line of cases back to Meyer v. Nebraska (1923) and Pierce v. Society of Sisters (1925) that point to a "private realm of family life which the state cannot enter." - - - Tofu sizzles in a pan as Yeon Sook Nam cooks dinner at home in Fairfax, Va.

Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 9 2003: The right to same-sex intimacy After responding to a false report of crime at John Geddes Lawrence's apartment, police encountered him with another man and charged them with violating Texas's law against "deviate" sex. The Court struck down the law in Lawrence v. Texas (2003), evoking an evolving understanding of liberty: "Their right to liberty under the Due Process Clause gives them the full right to engage in their conduct without intervention of the government." In our romantic lives, we express ourselves in lots of ways. Imagine, though, if the most intimate way was suddenly illegal, if sex with your partner meant breaking the law. That possibility now worries some members of the LGBTQ community. Should they move to another state? Should they love in the shadows? What else can be taken away? We spoke to LGBTQ people across the … [Read more...] about What happens if the right to same-sex intimacy disappears?
