'DEAR DEIDRE: I AM married but met up with a man who I used to work with – and we got so carried away we had sex in his car. He promised we would be together. Now he has blocked me on social media and I have no way of getting in touch. I cheated on my husband with a guy from work after a day out together Getty - Contributor My marriage has not been working for a long time. I am 32 and have been married for eight years. This man popped up on Facebook a month ago and I recognised him straight away. He is a handsome guy, a couple of years younger than me. We worked together for a few months before I was married. At the time he was in a serious relationship. I messaged him and he came straight back and suggested we go for a coffee to catch up. We had a lovely couple of hours that turned into going for a walk and then a drink in the evening. He said he’d always fancied me and we had mind-blowing sex Getty - Contributor I was honest with him and said I wanted to leave my husband. He said he was splitting up with his girlfriend, getting his own place soon, and I could move in. He asked if we could meet up the next day and I agreed. I was so excited as it all felt so right. We went to the coast and had a wonderful day. He had parked his car in an isolated spot and when it was time to go home, instead of driving off he pulled me towards him and we started kissing. He said he had always fancied me and how much he wanted us to have sex. My lover was quiet on the way home and it’s been a week since I’ve heard from him Getty - Contributor I was up for it too so we had sex on the back seat and it was mind-blowing. He was a bit quiet on the way home but I put it down to him being tired. He then dropped me back near to my home. The next couple of days we were messaging normally but he didn’t ask to meet again. I have heard nothing from him now for a week and found he had blocked me when I tried to contact him. I have feelings for him and I really hoped and believed he felt exactly the same as me. \t \t\t \t\t\t topic4today \t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\tAROUND one in 12 of us is into cross-dressing.\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t Many feel they have to keep it a secret until they are in a committed relationship, when it can often lead to problems.

'Ravel Morrison is looking for his ninth club in seven years after his contract with Ostersunds expired. Morrison joined the Swedish side shortly after Valentine’s Day , but the relationship failed to blossom and he will leave after the expiration of his contract on June 30. Ravel Morrison is looking for his NINTH club in seven years getty He took to Twitter to clarify his situation, saying: “My contract with Ostersunds has finished. I have not walked out so don’t listen to all the lies that come from these desperate people that will try make a story from anything. “I’ve stayed away from all this negative & bad press for years Leave me alone please.” A club representative of Ostersunds told  SVT Sport : ‘We have no contact with him anymore, he packed up his things when it was summer vacation and nothing speaks for him coming back.’ ‘He has been injured a lot, which has been difficult for the club and for himself. He couldn’t do himself justice.’ Morrison poses with the FA Youth Trophy alongside Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard getty The 26-year-old was once tipped to be the next big thing out of the Manchester United academy, but off-field indiscretions halted his rise. \t \t\t \t\t\t RAVEL MORRISON'S CV \t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t 2010–2012 Manchester United 2012–2015 West Ham 2012–2013 → Birmingham (loan) 2014 → Queens Park Rangers (loan) 2014 → Cardiff (loan) 2015–2019 Lazio 2017 → Queens Park Rangers (loan) 2017–2018 → Atlas (loan) 2019 Ostersunds \t\t \t \t A move to West Ham United in 2012 and the chance to work with Sam Allardyce came next for the midfielder, but he moved on after three years.

Accused had sexual relationship with 13-year-old before murdering her, jury told

'A 25-YEAR-OLD man with ‘an interest in under-age sex’ exploited ‘vulnerable’ schoolgirl Lucy McHugh by having a sexual relationship with her for more than a year before he murdered her, a court has heard. Carer Stephen Nicholson (pictured above), of no fixed address, is accused of repeatedly stabbing the 13-year-old in the neck and upper body in woodland at Southampton Sports Centre, before leaving her to die. The defendant, who is also a tattoo artist, is charged with murdering Lucy (below) on July 25 last year as well as three counts of rape against her when she was 12. He also faces two charges of sexual activity with a child against Lucy on multiple occasions when she was 13. Nicholson is also charged with sexual activity with a child in relation to another girl aged 14, dated June 29, 2012. William Mousley QC, prosecuting, told Winchester Crown Court that there is a ‘compelling’ case against Nicholson. He said: ‘This case concerns the vicious murder of Lucy McHugh, a 13-year-old girl, in woodland within the precincts of the outdoor Southampton Sports Centre. ‘She was repeatedly stabbed to the neck and upper body and she bled to death as a result. ‘The killer, who the prosecution alleges was Stephen Nicholson, then left her either dying or dead in a large area of woodland and made his escape. ‘It had clearly been the intention of her attacker to kill her; in other words, she had been murdered.’ Mr Mousley said the defendant ‘had an interest in under-age sexual activity’ and had a collection of knives. He said Nicholson had been a lodger at the home Lucy shared with her mother, Stacey White, her mother’s partner, Richard Elmes, and her siblings. Mr Mousley said that, for more than a year, Nicholson had exploited Lucy, who he described as vulnerable, and had a sexual relationship with her. He said: ‘It was clear to family members and visitors that there were problems between Stephen Nicholson and Lucy which led to arguments which got progressively worse in the lead-up to her death. On trial: Court artist sketch of Stephen Nicholson in the dock PICTURE: ELIZABETH COOK/PA ‘The cause was behaviour of Lucy towards Stephen Nicholson, wanting his attention by acting in various ways as if she had a crush on him and his apparent resistance to her. ‘However it emerged later, as the investigation continued, that there was another possible cause of the tension which was kept a secret from her immediate family and the authorities. ‘That concerned a sexual relationship which began in May 2017 and continued for more than a year between a 23- or 24-year-old man and a 12- to 13-year-old girl over a period the prosecution say she was vulnerable to that exploitation.’ Mr Mousley said that Nicholson, who was staying at his mother’s house at the time after being asked to leave Lucy’s home, visited his alleged victim’s house on July 23 to feed his pet reptiles. He said Nicholson ended up in an argument with Lucy, who was heard to shout at the defendant ‘This is all your fault’ and ‘I have got a hold on you anyway’. Mr Mousley added that Nicholson told a friend that Lucy had let down his bike’s tyres and stolen some money from him. He said Lucy also told Mr Elmes that she had something to tell him and her mother but, by the time Ms White returned, the schoolgirl had gone to bed. Mr Mousley said that, on the evening of July 24, Lucy created a second Facebook account and used it to communicate with the defendant that night and the following morning, the day of her death. Lucy left her home in Mansel Road East, Southampton, Hampshire, at about 9am on July 25. The jury was shown CCTV footage of Lucy walking to the sports centre where her body was found the next morning. Nicholson denies the charges and the trial continues.'

World Refugee Day: How to Make an Impact Now and In the Future

Relationships Giving Compass

[Photo: The author and her sister reunited with their mother at John F.
'[Photo: The author and her sister reunited with their mother at John F.Kennedy International Airport in Dec. 1983] I never considered myself a “refugee.” Growing up on Long Island, when I thought of a “refugee,” I thought of either the Haitian “ boat people ”– a nightly news anchor’s go-to topic back in the 90s – or of my Persian neighbors who fled Iran during that country’s revolution.It’s only been the past couple years that I’ve proudly claimed my identity as a refugee.The reasons are twofold: because of today’s historic refugee crisis and because of the Trump administration’s crackdown on immigrants entering the U.S.I’m stepping up to speak up on behalf of my fellow refugees who don’t yet have the opportunity to share their remarkable stories.And I’m speaking up to offer solutions; together, we in the philanthropic community have the power to change things.My mom fled the communist dictatorship of Romania in March 1982 in order to give my sister and I the chance at a better life; one that that didn’t involve midnight raids, informant “friends,” and arbitrary detention.I was still a toddler and my sister had just celebrated her first birthday when my mom escaped Romania.No person – let alone a devoted mother – willingly chooses to leave their kids, their home, and their country for the mere hope of a better life.But that’s what millions of people must do every single year.In fact, an unprecedented 68 million people are displaced from their homes right now.And many don’t have the inherent privileges my mom has as a white, highly-educated, able-bodied woman who came from an upper-middle class, tightly-knit family.I also know that mine is one of millions of stories (told and untold); stories of immigrants and refugees who have fled their homelands, but have built community and belonging in a new place, contributing to the economy and social fabric.Finally, I know that if it can happen to someone like my mom, it can happen to you.So, how can we ensure refugees receive the support they need to thrive?First and foremost, we can invest.The most recent Peace and Security Funding Index shows us that only eight percent of all “peace and security” dollars – or $26.3 million annually – support refugees.To put this in perspective, that’s about what the Elton John movie “Rocketman” took in on its opening weekend and what Wayne State University approved for its new basketball stadium . The tiny silver lining is that a little goes a long way: Though the median size grant reported is $26,200, even smaller amounts – channeled to high-impact nonprofits and in the form of “rapid response” support – make a big difference.The least funded strategy is probably the one that would have the greatest and fastest impact: Investing in leadership and professional development . In 2016, the latest year data is available, only two grants were awarded within this strategy.And yet, we know that nonprofit leaders that are immigrants are more frequently penalized by funders . Instead of our “wait and see” approach, let’s start proactively investing in immigrant leaders.The big silver lining is that you are not alone: You can join peer funders interested in supporting refugees in the funder affinity group Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR). Together, this group of funders pool resources, leverage investments for maximal impact, and catalyze learning.By connecting with GCIR staff or one of their 130 members (peer funders), you can learn about work in the U.S., or get more information about global efforts through the Peace and Security Funders Group . Second, we can not invest.In addition to supporting positive change, we can stop supporting bad things.Ask your investment advisors about applying socially-responsible negative screens to your investment portfolio or joining proactive campaigns like the “ Hate is Not Charitable Campaign .” This campaign brings together philanthropic leaders from nearly 100 entities – representing over $1 billion in assets – to call for donor advised funds to stop supporting hate groups.Finally, we can – and need to – speak up.In the wise words of GCIR president Daranee Petsod, “It is time for us to dream again—and dream big.We cannot afford to focus solely on resisting our present reality at the expense of designing the future we wish for.” She goes on to share four initial steps that funders can take to shift their work.At its best, silence is complacency; at its worst, it is complicity.In addition to using our money, we can use our voice as a powerful tool to change minds – through conversations at a personal level and through advocacy efforts to drive systemic change (think: your representative in Congress and her power to change existing immigration laws). The author with her sister and mother in June 2010.Today, June 20, is World Refugee Day and also the 35th anniversary of when my mom arrived in America.Take a minute or two today to think about how you will contribute to changing one life or – better yet – a system.       ____ Original contribution by Alexandra Toma, a refugee, the daughter of Rina Toma, and the Executive Director of the Peace and Security Funders Group. .

70 percent of Brits say Northern Ireland should legalise same-sex marriage

Relationships PinkNews

The ban on marriage equality is 'an embarrassing stain on the UK’s LGBT rights record,' said the director of the Rainbow Project.
'70 percent of people in Britain think same-sex marriage should be legal in Northern Ireland, according to a poll conducted by YouGov for PinkNews.Support for full marriage equality in Northern Ireland, the only part of the UK where it is illegal, has grown from 65 percent in 2018.Of people living in the region itself, 55 percent supported same-sex marriage.The figures were released ahead of the PinkNews summer reception in Belfast today (June 20), where politicians and campaigners will come together to discuss LGBT+ rights. “It is clear that across Britain, there is strong support for same-sex marriage to be legal in Northern Ireland, where there is also clear backing among the people, if not all politicians for the equality measure,” said PinkNews Chief Executive Benjamin Cohen. “Today, the UK is the only country where marriage means a different thing depending on where you live, and it is incumbent on all politicians to work together to ensure that everyone, LGBT+ or straight has an equal stake in our society.” Northern Ireland is one of few remaining parts of Western Europe without equal marriage.In Britain, there is cross-party support for equal marriage in the region, and Conservative party voter approval in particular has risen from 54 to 62 percent.Approval was much higher in women in the whole of the UK, but the disparity was greater in Northern Ireland itself with 72 percent of women supporting marriage equality compared to 40 percent of men.A vote on same-sex marriage was held and passed in the Northern Ireland Assembly (Stormont) in 2015, but it was blocked by the conservative Democratic Unionist Party (DUP). The British government insists that same-sex marriage in the region is a devolved matter , however it has not had a functioning devolved government since January 2017.The ban on marriage equality is “an embarrassing stain on the UK’s LGBT rights record” John O’Doherty, director of the Rainbow Project , said: “In the absence of a functioning Northern Ireland Assembly and Executive since January 2017, only the UK Parliament can currently remove the ban on same-sex marriage. .
