A common fear of many smokers who want to quit is that they will lose many people in their social network, family, friends or co-workers, when they quit.In fact, the opposite is true, according to a new study published in Nicotine and Tobacco Research. Those who quit smoking tended to increase their number of meaningful friendships after quitting, and those friends were less likely to smoke.Results are based on a sample of 691 adult smokers from a smoking-cessation trial conducted in Madison and Milwaukee, Wis. by researchers at the University of Wisconsin Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention (UW-CTRI).Researchers interviewed participants who smoked about their friends and associates. They asked all participants to describe their social groups, and analyzed how that changed during the three years after quitting.Smokers who quit were more likely to transition to larger social networks, especially amongst participants who had the highest levels of exposure to other smokers before quitting. In other words, quitting was associated with an increase in the number of people, especially non-smokers, in people’s social networks.“Clinicians can use results from this study to reassure smokers that quitting tends to increase, not decrease, the size of social networks,” said lead author Dr. Megan Piper, UW-CTRI Associate Director of Research. “Many smokers tell us cigarettes are their best friend, and that doesn’t have to be the case. We found our patients who quit expanded their social networks and developed meaningful relationships after they quit smoking.”Smokers at baseline who had social networks with the highest smoking levels were those most likely to continue smoking. However, when such smokers were able to quit smoking, they tended to develop social networks that were larger, contained fewer smokers, and involved fewer close relations with smokers.Anyone in the United States can get free help to quit by calling 1-800-QUIT-NOW or visiting SmokeFree.gov.UW-CTRI is a nationally recognized research center founded in 1992 and committed to determining the nature of tobacco dependence and developing evidence-based treatments to assist smokers. UW-CTRI is part of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. For more information, visit ctri.wisc.edu.

“It’s only a cake.” Some people say that about the June 4 U.S. Supreme Court decision ruling in favor of a Christian baker who refused to make a wedding cake for two gay men.But it was no accident that the decision, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, was delivered on the first Monday in June, LGBTQ Pride Month. Delivered like a fist in the face of LGBTQ people everywhere.Some commentators are trying to minimize the blow by noting the ruling was “narrow,” based on a minor “procedural” point. Others point to how justices also solemnly affirmed the “need to protect” LGBTQ rights. For instance, Justice Anthony Kennedy said “that these disputes must be resolved with tolerance, without undue disrespect to sincere religious beliefs, and without subjecting gay persons to indignities.”Those dangerous, sanctimonious words hide the murderous violence that’s historically been done to LGBTQ people under patriarchal class society.The words whitewash the raw, brutal history of “sincere religious belief,” i.e., Christian belief, used in the U.S. alone to justify unrelenting massacres of Indigenous peoples, kidnapping of their children, theft and desecration of their lands. This Christian “sincere belief” justified the kidnapping, enslavement, torture and theft of the labor of millions of African peoples and the murderous colonization of more billions in their homelands around the globe.Within living memory, the “sincere religious belief” of Christianity made rape within marriage legal — “the duty of the wife to submit.” To this day, this “belief” is used to create barbed-wire laws to keep women from making decisions about their own bodies and reproductive lives.In 1987 an infamous SCOTUS decision re-asserted that lesbian and gay people were felons because their sexual lives were a crime — against Judeo-Christian tradition. The Supreme Court upheld “sodomy laws” that justified LGBTQ people being evicted from their homes, fired from their jobs, denied medical assistance and public accommodations, having their children taken away and being forbidden to ever see them again — and more.Historically, the use of reactionary Christianity has always been to uphold the ruling class — and 21st century U.S. is no exception.The presence of extreme right-wing Christian forces in the Trump administration is no secret. Vice President Mike Pence, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and other administration figures are linked to Christian nationalism and aligned with the billionaire Koch brothers, the Bradley Foundation and other capitalists. Their agenda is to reconfigure the U.S. as a “Christian nation,” one where their class can impose austerity and extract maximum profit from workers and oppressed people.So the recent SCOTUS “cake” case is far from trivial. It signals to right-wing forces that the highest court of the land is willing to use the fig leaf of religion to hide the crimes of the current capitalist system.Though Supreme Court decisions in 2003 and 2015 decriminalized “gay sex” and legalized same-sex marriage, these victories were no “gift.” It took massive organizing in all sectors of LGBTQ communities to force the federal government to concede the new rights.Heed the alarmThis Pride Month, let’s heed the alarm raised by the recent Supreme Court decision and redouble organizing for LGBTQ liberation at all levels. In 31 states, LGBTQ people can still be fired, evicted or denied services because of their sexuality and/or gender expression. Some states still have vicious laws targeting trans people’s access to a bathroom, a basic need. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently announced it would “more vigorously” protect “religious freedom.” These code words would allow medical providers to deny treatment to LGBTQ people and families.Right now, right-wing attacks at the federal level are not most visibly against LGBTQ people. Across the country there are outright cop murders of Black and Brown people and racist persecution of im/migrants and asylum seekers when border guards arrest them and tear children, screaming in terror, from their parents’ arms. With the pretext of “austerity,” the government has waged attacks from Wisconsin to Puerto Rico on education workers and on secular public education for a decade.This Pride Month offers a chance to strengthen solidarity and build power with all those under attack by hateful right-wing forces. Let’s use this month to build that solidarity. Let all the banners of people fighting back against right-wing oppression fly together. That would indeed be an LGBTQ liberation march to be proud of.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
News to go further Côte d’IvoireAfrica Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentFreedom of expression Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate release of two journalists with the opposition newspaper Le Quotidien, whose arrests yesterday in Abidjan on a charge of “divulging false news” violated Côte d’Ivoire’s press law. Reports RSF’s recommendations for protecting press freedom during Côte d’Ivoire’s elections October 16, 2020 Find out more Organisation August 2, 2017 Two newspaper journalists detained illegally in Côte d’Ivoire Côte d’IvoireAfrica Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentFreedom of expression October 29, 2020 Find out more November 27, 2020 Find out more News The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Help by sharing this information Ivory Coast prosecutor Adou Richard Christophe speaks during a press conference in Abidjan on March 22, 2016 © SIA KAMBOU / AFP Follow the news on Côte d’Ivoire Dan Opeli and Yves Kuyo were arrested over a report in the newspaper’s 28 July issue claiming that National Assembly speaker Guillaume Soro was the target of a judicial investigation and that his bank accounts had been frozen. They are being held at the National Gendarmerie’s department of investigations at the behest of Abidjan-Plateau district prosecutor Richard Adou, who denied the report. Soro himself has not brought any legal action or demanded the right to reply in the newspaper. The arrests of the two journalists and their continuing detention is very disturbing inasmuch as press offences were decriminalized by the 2004 press law, which is still in effect. “We call on the judicial authorities to free Dan Opeli and Yves Kuyo because the press law in effect in Côte d’Ivoire does not allow journalists to be detained, said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. Journalists cannot be jailed for what they report. If it is defamatory or mendacious, legal recourse is available.” Prosecutor Adou often takes advantage of one of the flaws in the press law’s wording in order to bring charges against journalists that are linked to the criminal code. The authorities also try to defend their actions by arguing that police custody and preventive detention do not constitute imprisonment. Under the press law, only the National Press Council, the body that regulates and manages the media, is authorized to punish journalists for any breach of the law. Prosecutor Adou has nonetheless increasingly allowed himself to take liberties with press freedom since Alassane Ouattara became president in December 2010. This is not the first time that journalists have been detained improperly for press offences. Six newspaper owners and journalists were detained for several days in February on charges of “publishing false news” and “inciting army personnel to insubordination and rebellion.” The case is still pending before the Abidjan-Plateau district court. Côte d’Ivoire is ranked 81st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Rising Los Angeles-based heavy-folk rocker Lucy Arnell burst onto the scene with her 2015 debut LP The Whole Sky Turned Red With The Rainbow, produced by Jason Abraham Roberts (Norah Jones) and featuring work from some heavy hitters like Phish‘s Jon Fishman.Today, Lucy Arnell and Live For Live Music are excited to premiere a brand new music video for the Whole Sky Turned Red With Rainbow‘s “Sans-Souci,” an upbeat instrumental 60’s-esque surf-rock jam. The video, like the song, is a quirky compilation of old and new feelings. According to Lucy, the title comes from a sign that once hung above the entrance to the late Jerry Garcia’s home. “Sans-Souci” means “no worries” in french, and the song evidently emits that sentiment. Butch Norton (Eels, Lucinda Williams) provides the percussive backbone to carry Arnell’s searingly catchy riff. Check out the new video for Lucy Arnell’s “Sans-Souci” below:Says Arnell, “Initially, I had some verses written about a flying frog king or something. It was this crazy idea that was just not working, at all. My producer suggested making it an instrumental track, and that was it. It ended up being the best decision and my favorite song on the record. Now, I can’t imagine any word would have ever been the right fit.” Work is currently underway on a follow-up to The Whole Sky Turned Red With The Rainbow. The as-of- yet unnamed album is scheduled to be released later this year.[Photo by Brian Harding]
