Movement for Black Lives and the domestic workers movement that Ive been a part of for two decades now, "I have now surpassed @cristiano Ronaldo as I told him I would in 2016.” Communications Minister Issa Tchiroma Bakary said in a statement on Monday. Bakary praised his government’s cooperation with Nigeria adding that the two countries “will never tolerate their respective territories serving as a base for activities that destabilise one or the other” Ayuk a former businessman who had lived in Nigeria is seen as a moderate voice in the separatist movement and has in the past promoted dialogue over violence In December his family home in Anglophone Cameroon was surrounded by government troops he told Reuters at the time from Nigeria “If you can kidnap someone like Ayuk who wanted meaningful dialogue who will you be able to speak to” said Cho Ayaba head of the Ambazonian Governing Council a separatist body established to create an independent state called Ambazonia “This is an intolerable act Now we have no choice but to defend our homeland” That was why many of the people were killed because they were caught up in the farms where it was very difficult for them to escape or jointly defend themselves elders “The impression must not be created that we are in a police state informed the court of his intention to file an application for a no-case submission on behalf of the accused and her intestines had been pushed into

public" he said" Mile High USA Inc a subsidiary of the Rhode Island-based Twin River Casino company that owns a racetrack and off-track betting parlor in Colorado gave more than any other ballot measure donor in the US in an unsuccessful effort to expand gaming at its Arapahoe Park racetrack near Aurora Colorado Mile High gave $198 million to a "yes" campaign which worked out to $984 per ballot cast in Colorado Mile Highs corporate clout was countered not by citizens but by a group of competing casinos in the state that together gave nearly $163 million to defeat the measure Mile High promised that much of the newfound gambling revenue would go to a state education fund: "By permitting limited gaming at Arapahoe Park 68 will provide millions to our schools each year" said one backer in an ad But voters were not swayed: 70 percent of them voted against the amendment In another expensive uphill fight Wal-Mart gave $93 million to an effort to pass a measure in North Dakota that would have let the company open pharmacies in the state a haven for small pharmacist-owned drug stores Wal-Mart also lost though its opponents raised a fraction of what the big-box retailer gave Giving big on defense Within the top 50 donors business interests fighting to defeat ballot measures were more successful in 2014 than those whose money was directed at trying to pass initiatives Companies such as MGM Resorts International and Monsanto gave heavily to fight proposals that would have hurt their profits MGM which is building an $800 million casino in Springfield Massachusetts helped pay for TV ads that warned voters the state would lose thousands of jobs if it nixed its gambling law in a November ballot question "If Question 3 passes well lose it all as simple as that" said a man dressed as a construction worker in one ad "Were asking people to vote no on 3 so we can keep the jobs" For MGM the investment of nearly $54 million to fight Question 3 paid off voters rejected the initiative That fits with what political experts know about ballot measures: Theyre easier to defeat than to pass "Its easier to defend the status quo often" said Daniel Smith a University of Florida professor who has studied ballot measures for two decades "The onus is on the proponents to articulate why a measure needs to be passed by the people People know what the status quo is and you can raise doubts about whether youre going to be better off under this proposed change" Some companies made successful "no" arguments across more than one state Agricultural giant Monsanto gave $107 million to fight ballot questions in Colorado and Oregon that would have required genetically modified foods to be specially labeled The company is the largest producer of genetically modified seeds in the world "We fully support the idea of providing information to consumers to help them make choices about foods as long as the information [on the labels] being provided to consumers is accurate science based and does not mislead" said Monsanto spokeswoman Charla Lord in an email "What we are not supportive of is a state-by-state patchwork of labeling laws" Supporters of labeling many of them natural food companies raised nearly $1 million in Colorado and nearly $65 million in Oregon but it wasnt enough Monsanto and its food-industry allies raised more than $16 million in Colorado and $20 million in Oregon winning the ballot contests with 65 percent and just over 50 percent of the vote respectively Giving money to ballot measure fights has become the norm for companies seeking to defend their profits said Justine Sarver executive director of the progressive Ballot Initiative Strategy Center "Ballot measures were originally created as a check on corporate influence in state legislatures" Sarver said "Today corporations use the process to pad their bottom line" And business groups are continuing to fight for their profits at the polls For example plastics companies in California are already gearing up for a referendum battle over the states ban on single-use plastic bags The companies have already given millions to back a referendum repealing the ban delaying its implementation and allowing the companies to continue raking in profits until the vote Billionaires and ballot questions In addition to corporate giants several wealthy individuals including former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg used their vast stores of cash in an effort to influence state and local laws Their new prominence in the ballot measure scene has surprised experts "Thats become a big issue now" Matsusaka said "It seems like theres a lot of them these days" Bloomberg and Texas billionaire John Arnold each gave more than $2 million to groups supporting electoral reform in Oregon The proposal would have reshaped the states elections into contests between the top two primary vote-getters rather than representatives from mainstream political parties (Arnold and his wife are co-founders of the Laura and John Arnold Foundation a donor to the Center for Public Integrity) But Oregon voters were skeptical of the political designs of those two outsiders because Bloomberg has also promoted gun control and Arnold has backed pension reforms Sixty-eight percent of Oregon voters rejected the idea even though the pro-reform side gave more than status-quo supporters by a nearly 5-to-1 ratio Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson a generous GOP donor gave $55 million to defeat Amendment 2 a measure that would have allowed medical marijuana in Florida Fueled by Adelsons money marijuana opponents spent an estimated $51 million on TV ads compared to supporters $21 million The pot measure lost But two individual givers managed to change laws through ballot measures California tech magnate Henry Nicholas gave nearly $43 million to pass a law in Illinois giving more rights to crime victims Nicholas a vocal advocate of crime victims rights ever since his sister Marsy was murdered in 1983 started his crusade for "Marsys law" in California and has since taken it to other states The law to provide restitution and notification about court proceedings to crime victims passed in Illinois with 78 percent of the vote and essentially no opposition Rex Sinquefield a former financial executive and now prolific political donor in Missouri gave $29 million to pass the Show-Me states Amendment 10 which gives the Republican-led legislature more control over the budget Observers viewed this as a shot at Democratic Gov Jay Nixon "Its not shocking that he would support a measure that adds to the institutional strength of a Republican-dominated legislature at the expense of a Democratic governor who hes spent tens of thousands of dollars to defeat" said Jeff Smith a Missouri politics expert at New York Citys New School Healthy-sized giving Among the top contributing business sectors one outranked them all: Health care groups gave nearly $88 million in 2014 almost entirely in California Casino companies were a close second giving nearly $60 million across the nation The Golden State is known as the Wild West of ballot initiatives with a long history of opponents and supporters spending eye-popping sums with far-reaching consequences In 2014 two initiatives attracted considerable cash Propositions 45 on insurance rate approval and 46 which would have raised the states cap on medical malpractice damages and forced doctors to be drug tested faced more than $90 million worth of opposition from insurers hospitals and doctors Anthems crusade against Proposition 45 was aided by other health industry organizations also willing to give millions Kaiser Foundation Health Plan another of Californias largest health insurance plans gave $124 million to defeat both 45 and Proposition 46 Medical malpractice insurers Norcal Mutual Insurance Company The Doctors Company and the Cooperative of American Physicians each gave more than $10 million to fight the health measures in California The Proposition 46 opponents framed the measure as the darling of trial lawyers who indeed backed it and argued that it would have protected patients by reducing preventable medical errors "Before you vote remember the risks about Prop 46" said one ad paid for by the insurers "The trial lawyers wrote it to serve themselves not the rest of us mixing three unrelated provisions together to hide what Prop 46 actually does allow the trial lawyers to make millions for more medical lawsuits and higher jury awards while Californians pay when our healthcare costs skyrocket Thats the true story" Hal Dasinger a spokesman for The Doctors Company noted the election results showed voters agreed with his companys position: "Proposition 46 was bad for patients bad for physicians bad for local and state government budgets and opposed by an unprecedented broad list of groups" Giving tens of millions of dollars to ballot measure contests was worth the investment for the health care companies according to Wendell Potter a former insurance executive-turned-whistleblower who writes an opinion column about health care for the Center for Public Integrity "These insurers have enormous amounts of money" he said "The largest companies make billions of dollars in profits every year They have the money to spend and theyre quite willing to spend it to prevent any legislation or regulation that they have reason to believe might in some way cost them money or have a negative impact on profitability" But in 2016 the health care industry along with its money will take on a harder task in California: trying to pass a measure rather than defeat one The California Hospital Association is sponsoring an initiative to make permanent a program to attract more federal dollars for low-income patients care The hospital group plans to round up allies and spend big if necessary in yet another ballot measure showdown "It could be 20 million It could be 40 million It could be more than that" said Jan Emerson-Shea the groups spokeswoman "Our decision will be based on: What do we have to do to win this measure If there is opposition we have to fight off then the price tag will be higher" Contact us at [email protected] 24 and hopes to name a superintendent by mid- to late March it’s the hesitation around family The

some sites the option of faster service could in fact benefit consumers and that the new rules allow the Federal Trade Commission to sue carriers that act anti-competitively Consumers’ daily Internet experience will be the same "next week next month and next year" industry officials promised on a conference call WednesdayThe officials also said the 2015 rules discouraged providers from making broadband faster and more reliable according to the industry USTelecom a trade group representing AT&T Verizon and others said that annual broadband infrastructure spending fell from $784 billion in 2014 before the rules took effect to $76 billion in 2016With Thursday’s decision "this country will return to a rational regulatory framework similar to the one that capably governed the Internet for decades" said AT&T in a blog post WednesdayPowell who now leads a top cable industry trade group said that the repeal of the FCC’s net neutrality rules is still consistent with the four freedoms he described nearly 14 years ago"Our belief at the time was that the Internet needed to retain a light regulatory environment to get broadband moving" said Powell "And the companion to those four freedoms was the decision to keep the Internet classified as an information service"("Information service" providers face fewer obligations under the FCC’s regulatory structure than do providers of telecom service a category that covers landline phone companies)Under Democratic FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler the net neutrality rules took the extraordinary step of reclassifying Internet providers as telecom providers giving the FCC broad powers to define new obligations for providers on everything from prices to privacy practicesAdvocates hailed the 2015 decision as a victory for consumer protection and a necessary step in light of how differently theInternet now looks compared to its earlier days when fewer massive companies dominated the space Meanwhile industry groups sought to get the regulations overturned in court They failed but have escalated the case to the Supreme Court The Court has yet to decide whether it will hear the caseSupporters of the net neutrality rules have signaled that the current FCC will face a court challenge designed to stop the policy change"If the arc of history is long we are going to bend this toward a more just outcome – in the courts in Congress wherever we need to go to ensure that net neutrality stays the law of the land" said FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel a DemocratRosenworcel also took aim at the public feedback process that led to the decision alleging major irregularities in the recordTwo million comments filed to the FCC on net neutrality were submitted under stolen identities she said Half a million came from Russian addresses and 50000 net neutrality complaints have gone "inexplicably missing"Questions about whether the policymaking process was tampered with have prompted an investigation by New York’s attorney general and numerous calls for hearings on the matter Analysts expect that such complaints could come up again in any litigation over the FCC voteSome analysts believe the uncertainty surrounding net neutrality provides an opening for congressional legislation to settle the issue once and for all Republicans on Capitol Hill are optimistic But their efforts are likely to stall unless they can courtDemocratic votes and many Democrats view litigation against the FCC as the preferable course of actionThe sharp divides on net neutrality show that what began as a bipartisan issue has hardened into two distinct sides"Tribal partisanship is dominating our public policy debates" said Marc Martin a communications lawyer at the firm PerkinsCoie "It wasn’t always this way First adopted and enforced during the Bush administration net neutrality began as a noncontroversial policy to protect consumers’ use of online platforms"The sobriety checkpoint is dedicated to the
