All Aboard Florida train could hire French company 'SNCF' that transported Jews to concentration camps

Holocaust survivors and their families fear the train system that would link Miami with Orlando could hire a French company that delivered tens of thousands of Jews to concentration camps during World War II.
They do not want the French national railway system SNCF making money in the United States, at least not until they say the company fully opens war time books and offers an apology and reparations.
"It makes me very angry. I'm sad," said Rosette Goldstein, 75, who lives in Boca Raton and was hidden as a child from the Germans by a French farmer. Her father was taken in an SNCF train to the German border, where he was sent to a camp and his death.
SNCF officials have consistently denied wrongdoing and say they are sorry about what happened seven decades or more ago. They were forced, they said, to transport Jews and others by the Nazis after they occupied France.
In a statement to the Orlando Sentinel, SNCF said it is not in talks with the All Aboard Florida company. But officials declined to comment about a subsidiary company called Keolis Transit America negotiating to run the train. Keolis officials did not return phone calls and emails. The company specializes in operating transit systems across the United States, including trolleys in Miami, and has been controlled by SNCF since 2010.

All Aboard Florida president Don Robinson said his Coral Gables based company has made no decisions on whether SNCF would run trains along what promises to be a 230-mile route.
"…we are evaluating all options, including operating the rail system ourselves," said Don Robinson, a former Walt Disney World executive hired by All Aboard Florida in March.
Goldstein and others have long claimed that SNCF collaborated with the Nazis during the war and have never come clean about its role in carrying 76,000 people across country in cattle cars, most to their death.
"A company like SNCF has to make good," she said. "What they did is not right."
SNCF, which stands for Societe Nationale des Chemins de fer Francaise, maintains top officials have publicly apologized for the company's role in the transport of Jews and have placed online more than 1 million documents detailing its wartime activities.  <

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

Mocking boys for doing "feminine" things leaves them ill-equipped for life, and makes America a worse place for all

The real boy crisis: 5 ways America tells boys not to be “girly” Clothing. Hair.Products.Sports.Stories.

The ability to feel what others feel has many well-documented benefits, including, for empathetic people, greater psychological and physical health. The real and socially significant positive impact of empathy, however, is the ways in which it affects behavior toward others. People who are empathetic are less aggressive and prone to denigrate others; they are predisposed to act with care and compassion; they have increased egalitarian beliefs and act with less prejudice and stereotype-based hatred. Empathetic behaviors, however, are associated with being female. And weak. The stereotypes that plague our lives teach that the characteristics of empathetic understanding are feminine: listening, sensitivity, quiet consideration and gentleness.  Empathy is feminized and boys learn quickly that what is feminized is, in a man, the source of disgust. While parents, teachers, coaches, grandp…
