- Trump tweets that transgender people can’t serve in military
Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
President Trump set off a bipartisan firestorm Wednesday morning by tweeting that the government will not allow transgender people to serve in the military “in any capacity.”In a series of early morning tweets, Trump wrote, After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.Republicans also expressed disappointment and outrage at Trump for posting policy decisions on social media.Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who also serves as the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, called Trump’s statement unclear and promised that the committee would conduct oversight on the issue of transgender people serving in the military.In a White House press briefing later that day, Sarah Huckabee, the White House press secretary, said that the announcement was “something that the Department of Defense and the White House iwll have to work together on as implementation takes place.”Rep. Scott Peters (D-San Diego) filed an amendment to the Department of Defense Appropriations bill to block Trump’s decision to ban transgender people from entering the military service.The amendment states that government funds for defense can’t be used to “implement, enforce, or observe any directive” from the president that “bars or restricts the ability of transgender persons to serve in the Armed Forces.”The order, signed by Truman on July 26, 1948, stated, “It is hereby declared to be the policy of the President that there shall be equality of treatment and opportunity for all persons in the armed services without regard to race, color, religion, or national origin.”The RAND Corporation, a nonprofit research group, found that the costs of gender-transition related to health care treatment is “relatively low.”The total cost of medical care for transgender troops would increase health care costs by between $2.4 million and $8.4 million annually, representing a 0.04- to 0.13-percent increase in health care expenditures.Transgender reassignment surgery — which not every trans person chooses to undergo — can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars per person to nearly $100,000, depending on how extensive it ias, according to Courtney D’Allaird, founding coordinator for the Genderal and Sexuality Resource Center at the University of Albany, N.Y.“Weren’t we just last year christening the Harvey Milk vessel in the Navy?” D’Allaird said, referring to the 2016 announcement that a Navy supply vessel is being named after the gay rights pioneer of San Francisco.Aaron Belkin, director of the Palm Center, a public policy think tank at UC Santa Barbara, said Trump’s announcement would cause discrimination and ultimately harms military readiness.In June 2016, former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced that transgender individuals would be able to serve in the U.S. armed forces.In June, Gen. James Mattis, Trump’s defense secretary, delayed Carter’s plan to accept transgender troops and to accommodate transgender service members’ medical needs by six months.In February, Trump rescinded federal protections that were implemented for transgender students, allowing them to use bathrooms that coincided with their gender identity.Trump’s tweeted announcement comes about a year after he pledged in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention to protect the rights LGBTQ people.

- Brady says he wants to keep any past medical issues private
By Associated Press - Friday Aug 4, 2017
Tom Brady says he prefers to keep any medical issues in his past private, including whether he had a concussion last season.In his first comments since the Patriots opened training camp, the quarterback said Friday he is “not blind” to issues such as CTE, but remains confident in how he tries to avoid injury.Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, told “CBS This Morning” in May that Brady played through a concussion on his way to a fifth Super Bowl title.The NFL said it reviewed all reports from independent neurotrauma consultants and trainers who worked at Brady’s games during the 2016 season and found no records that indicated he had a head injury or showed concussion symptoms.Brady, who turned 40 on Thursday, hasn’t missed a regular-season game because of injury since tearing a ligament in his left knee in the season opener in 2008.Dolphins coach Adam Gase said knee surgery was an option for quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who was injured in Thursday’s practice.An MRI exam on Tannehill, who missed the final four games of last season with two sprained ligaments in his knee, was inconclusive, and the team is consulting with specialists.Tomlin is 103-57 in 10 years with the Steelers, who have won one Super Bowl, been to another and earned five AFC North titles during his tenure.The Jets signed defensive lineman Devon Still, whose daughter’s inspiring battle with cancer and subsequent remission made national headlines, claimed wide receiver Bruce Ellington off waivers from the 49ers and signed defensive lineman Jeremy Faulk.New York waived injured defensive lineman Brandin Bryant and tight end Brian Parker, and placed defensive back Corey White on injured reserve. ...The Ravens signed former Raiders tackle Austin Howard to a three-year contract.
