- From @CEOofACT, MAITI Nepal:
MAITI Nepal was born out of a crusade to protect Nepali girls and women from crimes like domestic violence, trafficking for flesh trade, child prostitution, child labor and various forms of exploitation and torture. A group of socially committed professionals like teachers, journalists and social workers together formed Maiti Nepal in 1993 to fight against all the social evils inflicted upon our female populace. Most of all, its special focus has always been on preventing trafficking for forced prostitution, rescuing flesh trade victims and rehabilitating them. This social organisation also actively works to find justice for the victimized lot of girls and women by engaging in criminal investigation and waging legal battles against the criminals. It has highlighted the trafficking issue with its strong advocacy from the local to national and international levels.

- From Metro Weekly via @lizzwinstead, Navy Petty Officer's DADT Discharge Hearing Raises Questions About DADT's Continued Enforcement. The panel voted 3-0 to let him stay in, but still, this is not good. When does DADT get fully implemented anyway?
