On October 26, Morocco World News conducted an online poll in which it asked whether Moroccans are for or against the decision to maintain the DST. Eighty percent (862 voters) out of 1087 people voted against the move. Only 218 people said they are in favor of the decision. The majority of news outlets conducted similar polls, which showed similar results.Moroccans also created several Facebook pages and campaigns to vent their anger against the move. Parents of Moroccan students took to social media to express their rejection of the move and their worries about the long-term effects of such a decision. Most parents expressed their concerns about the negative impact of the DST on their children health and security, especially in mornings.In response, the Ministry of Education announced a new time-table for all public and private schools, vocational training institutes, and universities. The ministry said that schools will start at 9 a.m. and end at 6 p.m.Moroccan parents, however, argue that a one-hour lunch break is not enough, especially for students who live away from their schools.“The government takes a decision without taking into account citizens’ opinions. I have my daughter studying in Mohammed V high school in Kenitra. She takes the bus to get to school. The bus takes between 20 to 30 minutes to arrive to school,” a parent told Morocco World News.He added that his daughter “cannot do that anymore when she finishes school at 1 p.m. and has to get back at 2 p.m. I cannot afford to pay her launch every day. The government should provide students with cafeterias. The situation is a total mess.”On October 27, Morocco’s National Federation of parents expressed their categorical rejection of the government decision. calling on the government to cancel its “hasty decision.” read more

See All in Privacy & Compliance » Building on a Compliant FoundationVoxbone lives at the intersection of compliance and technology. It’s taken us 15 years to build a fully-compliant footprint of enterprise-grade services in 65+ markets – providing instant, compliant, and global scale for contact centers, business telephony, conferencing platforms, and embedded communications. Our compliance-as-a-service model gives you everything you need to run compliant telecoms out of the box. Sure, from technical and financial perspectives, cloud communications plays are a breath of fresh air for businesses accustomed to working with partners in the mean old world of legacy telecoms. As-a-service models enable real-time provisioning, offloaded infrastructure management, and instant global scale. On these topics, you’ll find plenty of providers that talk a good game. Take away the compliance piece, though, and you’re sure to come unstuck. The Migraine-Inducing Effects of Non-ComplianceInstant global scale sounds great on paper, but without cast-iron guarantees of long-term service stability, it’s just another bullet point in a sales presentation. What does working with a non-compliant provider look like for enterprises? Worst-case scenario, we’re talking service disconnections without warning that affect entire markets with dreaded downtime, not to mention the possibility of lost phone numbers. Just imagine a customer dialing your number only to be told their call cannot be completed. compliance-illustration_774.png The implications for customer experience and brand advocacy are as obvious as they are terrifying. It’s no different than your website going down for every customer — actual and potential — in a particular country. You’re faced with the unwanted task of migrating to a new provider in a mad dash to minimize downtime. Enterprises just can’t afford to deal with service disconnections or lost numbers. And yet, these are not hypothetical scare stories I’m telling to keep you up at night. This is very much the reality for many of the businesses I speak with when they migrate to the cloud.

What will become of all this data? Incumbents are happy to focus on the country or region where they best know the lay of the land and buy coverage in other places like anyone else. Cloud providers typically just don’t have the legal frameworks or relationships with regulators and carriers in place to establish the requisite levels of compliance on a global scale, no matter how attractive their technical credentials. Privacy by Degree Martha Buyer September 19, 2019 Some thoughts on privacy rights in the U.S., and the implications of impending privacy legislation Building compliant communications infrastructure and services in a single market takes years of dealing with local regulators and huge legal expertise in the peculiarities of a given territory. It’s no small undertaking. Doing it across five, 10, 15, 20, 50 or more countries? That’s a headache that most providers don’t want, especially in the heavily regulated markets that tend to offer global businesses the best avenues for new growth.

A Gordian Knot of ComplianceIt’s not hard to see why cloud communications providers typically lag on compliance. Like any new industry driven by disruption, technology tends to outpace the ability of lawmakers to keep up. But regulators have a habit of getting there eventually.

Redshirt-junior cornerback Bradley Roby walks out of the tunnel in sweatpants before the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl Jan. 3 at Sun Life Stadium. OSU lost, 40-35.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorIt is somewhat ironic.Former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby, following a report that detailed his citation for operating a vehicle while impaired, tweeted he no longer trusts the media.“I have lost any respect I had left for the media. I take ownership in my part of it. But you run a story at least put out all fact…” Roby tweeted from his account, @BradRoby_1, Friday.Well, in under two weeks, NFL teams will have to make a decision as to whether or not they trust Roby enough to make him a first-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.Thus far, he hasn’t earned that trust.Formerly thought to be a potential top 10 pick, Roby’s fall through mock draft boards began last offseason in Bloomington, Ind., where he was arrested in an incident at a local bar. Charges were dropped, but nevertheless, Roby was suspended by OSU coach Urban Meyer for the first game of the season against Buffalo.With his past issues seemingly behind him, Roby was poised for redemption on the field, where he would look to earn back his reputation as one of college football’s elite talents.For one reason or another, however, that never happened. Roby struggled throughout the 2013 season, and as one final opportunity to prove himself a first-round lock came around, he missed it entirely.Roby decided that it was in his best interest — thanks to injury — to sit on the sideline and watch his team take on Clemson in the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl.A solid performance against Clemson standout wide receiver and fellow first-round prospect, Sammy Watkins, could have given Roby the boost he needed to find himself back in the top end of the draft, but it wasn’t meant to be as he watched his teammates get demolished by the speedy wideout.With his collegiate career finished, Roby turned his attention to the NFL, and after a solid performance at the combine, he again found himself in near the top of NFL draft boards. Until this most recent incident, which will likely turn some heads.While it was reported that Roby was drunk behind the wheel of a vehicle, Roby himself tweeted that was not the case, even posting a picture of the citation he received that showed his alcohol level far below the legal limit.Unfortunately for Roby, whether or not he was legally drunk was not the problem. Instead, this most recent incident is yet another red flag for NFL teams who could be thinking about taking the cornerback in the first round.It’s not so much that Roby did something egregiously wrong — as evidenced by the citation he was given — but you would think that with just two weeks until the NFL draft, which could be the biggest day of Bradley Roby’s life to this point, the embattled corner would want to stay out of any of these situations that cause trouble.Thus far, he hasn’t proven himself able to avoid these inconveniences and its going to cost him. In the past, it cost him a game and maybe an ounce of respect. Now, however, it’s going to cost him a whole lot of money.Roby might be able to overcome these little obstacles and go on to have a stellar NFL career, as he is very talented on the field. If I was an NFL general manager, however, I couldn’t spend a first-round pick on him, if only because I may have to deal with this laundry list of minor headaches and off-the-field issues.Bradley Roby is not a bad apple — that I firmly believe. He has, however, cost himself the opportunity of a lifetime to become a first-round pick and will therefore have to spend his first NFL seasons proving the many general managers and owners who pass on him during next month’s draft wrong. read more
Goldcorp has designed Borden Lake to become the world’s first all-electric underground mine when it reaches commercial production next year, an undertaking the company expects to not only help minimise community and environmental impact but also improve health and safety for employees – all while boosting Goldcorp’s bottom line.By the time Borden is in full production, there will be no diesel-powered equipment underground. A combination of tethered electric and quick-charge battery-powered equipment will comprise the entire fleet. By eliminating diesel underground and fully electrifying Borden, Goldcorp anticipates a 70% reduction in greenhouse gases and annual savings of 2 million litres of diesel fuel and 1 million litres of propane. The company also expects to save 35,000 megawatt hours of electricity yearly, due in large part to drastically reduced ventilation needs. Goldcorp senior project engineer Maarten van Koppen: “Electrification is the ultimate win-win, especially complemented by innovations like ventilation on demand and full connectivity. The main benefits that we see with going electric are certainly the elimination of fuel, reduced maintenance, reduced greenhouse gases, reduced power consumption, and of course the biggest one is the elimination of diesel particulate matter in underground environments, which is hugely beneficial to the health of the workforce. We were able to eliminate a return air raise and our intake raise, we could reduce the diameter from five metres to four metres, so there’s big cost savings to be had if you set it up right from the get-go.” Miner Randy Harrison appreciates the absence of underground emissions at Borden after working in conventional diesel mines across four continents since 1980. “This is like no other underground environment I’ve ever worked in,” Harrison says. “The air is so fresh.” He’s behind the controls of a Sandvik DD422iE, one of two identical units Goldcorp depends on to develop Borden’s access ramp. “The computer setup and the preciseness that you can get on the face, bar none, best jumbo they got around,” says Harrison, who’s operated development drills since 1989. “Sandvik has been on the cutting edge right from day one since I started operating them.”Borden project manager Luc Joncas calls the jumbo the star of the fleet. “It enables better accuracy, more control, consistency from crew to crew. For us it enables also a safer operating workplace. We start from a fresh face with virtually no bootlegs. We manage the profile better and have less overbreak. It allows us to optimise the drilling pattern. Our holes are higher quality.” The Sandvik DD422iE is connected to the grid at Borden while drilling, during which the jumbo charges the battery it uses to manoeuvre between faces. “We thought charging-while-drilling was a great concept, something that could potentially be very valuable in other equipment in the future,” Joncas says. “I was impressed that the jumbo can handle multiple voltage standards. We had a training camp at a mine with a 600-volt standard, and the jumbo works equally well on the 1,000-volt network here.” The rig’s fully integrated battery technology means no change-outs, a safety and productivity benefit, Joncas says. He also cites the regenerative braking system as a plus and says the electric driveline in Sandvik DD422iE makes it much easier to maintain than conventional jumbos.“When we purchased the fleet, one thing we were extremely attracted by was the fact that a lot of the mechanical components are removed,” Joncas says. “No more diesel engines, no more oil changes to be done.” Goldcorp bought Borden from a junior explorer for $526 million in 2015. With current gold reserves of 950,000 ounces, the operation figures to produce more than 100,000 ounces per year over at least a seven-year mine life. “We are confident that our exploration will extend that,” Joncas says. “The longer our mine life, the more cost-effective our initial capital investment in an all-electric fleet.” Ore will be trucked 160 kilometres (100 miles) to Timmins for processing at the Dome mill at Goldcorp’s Porcupine Gold Mines. “Using an existing facility that operates extremely efficiently and not having to permit and build a new mill and tailing facility minimises our cost and our environmental footprint,” Joncas says.Decline construction at Borden began in mid-2017 and a 30,000 t bulk sample is expected to be extracted and analysed by the end of this year with production expected to begin in 2019.The Sandvik DD422iE is an electric development jumbo designed to drive down production costs while reducing the environmental impacts of drilling and tunnelling. By using electric energy from an onboard battery during tramming, Sandvik DD422iE produces zero emissions while manoeuvring between headings. This improves health and safety for miners working underground. Less diesel usage in a mine thanks to diesel-free drilling can ease ventilation requirements, while also reducing associated diesel logistics and maintenance expenses. Using a mine’s existing electric infrastructure, the Sandvik driveline technology enables the battery to recharge during the drilling cycle. The battery will even recharge while Sandvik DD422iE is tramming downhill, using energy generated by the braking system.This article is an excerpt from Sandvik’s latest Minestories article, see http://minestories.com/a-quest-to-coexist/ read more
Geek Pick: Shure MV88+ Is An Excellent, On the Go Microphone KitGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls I really like the tiki bar aesthetic. It’s goofy, and fun, and with the right crowd it’s downright enjoyable to drink in an establishment that looks like Spongebob Squarepants’ secret orgy lounge. Geek-themed tikis have become a thing recently, thanks largely to ThinkGeek and the very appropriately named Geeki Tikis. Of course, that includes Star Wars.ThinkGeek’s Star Wars Geeki Tikis are a collection of 12 tiki mugs modeled after Star Wars characters and creatures, and they sent us six of them (the complete first wave) to check out. The first wave, which is still available at $12.99 each or $59.99 for all six, includes a lot of big names: Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, R2D2, Yoda, and a stormtrooper. The second wave is slightly more esoteric, with C3PO, a jawa, a tauntan, a tusken raider, a wampa, and Wicket. Well, it says Wicket. Is it speciest to say it could be any ewok, based on the Geeki Tikis’ mostly monochrome designs and the fairly universal angry shih-tsu look of the Endor forest moon dwellers?Anyway, about the mugs themselves. They’re ceramic, with a one-tone color scheme on the outside and a secondary color on the inside. They stand between 6.5 and 7.5 inches tall (Yoda is only an inch shorter than Chewbacca), with round mouths at the top measuring just over two inches. They’re pretty sturdy cups, both dishwasher and microwave safe, and can handle both hot and cold liquids. And, because they’re tiki mugs rather than conventional mugs, they don’t have handles; you need to grip the whole cylindrical body with your full hand.We’ve seen a few Geeki Tikis that can be a bit tricky to clean, like Baby Groot and Rocket Raccoon’s weird contours in the Guardians of the Galaxy set that begs for a bottle brush, but most of the Star Wars mugs are pretty simple, with large, easy-to-wash cylindrical interiors. The only exception is Yoda, whose pointy ears have pointy indentations on the inside that could easily get gunked up with hot cocoa.The interior color of each Geeki Tiki shows a nice contrast that adds a bit of an eye-catching flair to the otherwise monochrome mugs. The inside of Boba Fett’s dark green mug is bright orange, and the inside of Darth Vader’s black mug is red. It’s a small touch, but it really perks up the designs.These are fun mugs, and at $13 a pop aren’t particularly expensive. And, since there are so many Geeki Tikis out there, you can get Star Trek or Marvel or DC mugs if you don’t want Star Wars. There’s even a new Iron Giant mug, which is a better thematic portrayal of the titular robot than its appearance in Ready Player One. They’re all available now.

The Atletico Madrid coach didn’t reveal his team selection for Wednesday’s UEFA Super Cup match against Real MadridAtletico Madrid is preparing to go toe to toe against Real Madrid on Wednesday.Both teams will take part in the UEFA Super Cup match, to be played in Estonia.And Los Colchoneros’ boss knows any advantage he can get over Los Merengues is good, that’s why he’s not revealing his team selection.“Everyone who has come can play, until tomorrow afternoon they will not know who will start,” Simeone told Atletico’s official website on Tuesday.“Based on their last two matches, perhaps we can see how tomorrow’s game will go. They pressure well when they lose the ball and pressure high up the pitch to recover the ball. That is what [Julen] Lopetegui did as Spain national coach. I imagine he will follow that same line.”Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“Obviously our budgets are not the same. But in motivation, we never feel lower than anybody. In this game we will try and do everything we can to bring the game to a place we want,” he added.“The important thing is to play with excitement and emotion. That can decide the match.”? @Simeone: “A nivel emocional es como se puede resolver el partido”➡ https://t.co/FSRv03nDvj #AúpaAtleti #SuperCup #RealMadridAtleti pic.twitter.com/GMVNSpSG9e— Atlético de Madrid (@Atleti) August 14, 2018 read more

Migrants are evacuated from a blue inflatable boat by the crew of a rescue vessel Alan Kurdi about 34 miles from the Libyan coast according to Sea-eye, in this picture obtained from social media on 5 July. Photo: ReutersThe UN Security Council called Friday for a ceasefire in Libya as the death toll from a three-month offensive on Tripoli reached 1,000, including scores killed in an air strike that hit a detention centre for migrants.The council condemned the late Tuesday attack on the Tajoura detention camp east of Tripoli and “stressed the need for all parties to urgently de-escalate the situation and to commit to a ceasefire”, said a joint statement.Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar, whose forces hold eastern Libya and much of the country’s south, launched an offensive in early April to wrestle the capital from forces loyal to the UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA).Air strikes and ground fighting have since left nearly 1,000 people dead and some 5,000 wounded, the UN’s World Health Organization said.The fighting has forced more than 100,000 people to flee their homes and threatens to plunge Libya into deeper conflict.Among the dead are 53 migrants killed Tuesday night in an air raid on a detention centre in the Tripoli suburb of Tajoura, held by the GNA, which accused Haftar’s forces of carrying out the strike.A Geneva-based spokesman for the International Organization for Migration said six children were among the migrants killed.Joel Millman said that 350 migrants, including 20 women and four children, were still detained at the centre, one of five air hangars hit in the raid.World powers have been divided over how to respond to Haftar’s offensive, with the United States and Russia refusing to condemn the Libyan strongman.The British-drafted council statement condemned the attack on the migrant camp, called for a return to political talks and for full respect of the arms embargo on Libya.It followed a closed-door council meeting on Wednesday during which US diplomats said they needed more time to consult with Washington on the proposed text.The United Nations has called for an independent investigation to determine who was responsible for the strike on the centre, which housed some 600 migrants, mainly from African countries.President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey — which backs the GNA — called for an end to “unlawful attacks” by Haftar’s forces during a meeting with Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj in Istanbul on Friday, the Turkish presidency said.UN shared coordinatesUN agencies and humanitarian groups have repeatedly voiced concern over the plight of thousands of migrants and refugees held in detention centres near combat zones in the capital.Secretary-general Antonio Guterres has expressed outrage over the attack and said the United Nations had shared the coordinates of the detention centre with the warring sides to protect the civilians.The carnage in Tajoura was “a tragedy that should have never happened”, said Charlie Yaxley, spokesman for the UN’s refugee agency.Libya has become a major conduit for migrants seeking to reach Europe and remains prey to numerous militias vying for control of the country’s oil wealth.Rights groups say migrants face horrifying abuses in Libya, and their plight has worsened since Haftar launched the offensive against Tripoli.According to the UN, some 5,700 refugees and migrants are being held in detention centres in Libya, 3,300 of whom are vulnerable to fighting in and around Tripoli.Plane downedAn initial lightning assault in early April saw Haftar’s self-styled Libyan National Army steam towards the capital. But they have since been bogged down on its southern outskirts, where frontlines have been frozen for months.GNA forces launched a surprise counter-attack late last month, seizing the strategic town of Gharyan, the main supply base for Haftar’s offensive.After the setback, Haftar’s forces threatened to intensify strikes against their rivals.Both sides have launched daily air raids throughout the fighting and each lost several planes.The rival camps have remained convinced that with the help of their backers, they can win the battle.The GNA receives support from Turkey and Qatar, and Haftar is backed by the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and according to experts, to some degree by the United States. read more
Image from the LifeLine Inc. website.BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Police Department homicide unit has taken over an investigation of the death of a 10-year-old boy at a home for medically fragile children because of the possibility that abuse he suffered six years ago played a role in his death.Damaud Martin died July 2 after suffering cardiac arrest at a home run by LifeLine Inc. in Laurel, Maryland, where state inspectors had found significant problems with staffing, documents show. The state has removed the other 10 children living there, said the Maryland health secretary, Dr. Joshua Sharfstein.The Anne Arundel County police began investigating Damaud’s death, but brought in Baltimore police after determining that there had been a “prior trauma abuse incident in Baltimore city.”That incident occurred in January of 2008, when Damaud was hospitalized with severe brain trauma. Damaud’s mother, Tamekia Martin, was convicted of child abuse in May of 2009 after accepting an Alford plea, according to Damaud’s grandmother, Rosita Martin. That’s when a defendant maintains her innocence, but acknowledges that the prosecution has enough evidence to convict her.Rosita Martin said after Damaud was hospitalized, his 7-year-old sister, Sandoria, was placed in foster care.The children were first taken into state custody in 2006, then placed in Rosita Martin’s home. The Department of Social Services returned the children to Tamekia Martin in November 2007, two months before Damaud’s hospitalization.Screen shot of a news video showing the group home was operated out of the apartments by Lifeline, Inc.Baltimore Police spokesman Jeremy Silbert said Friday that the direction of the investigation into Damaud’s death will depend on the findings of the state medical examiner’s autopsy.“If they do rule the death was the result of the incident that happened in Baltimore city, this will become a homicide,” Silbert said.Rosita Martin said Friday that her daughter never abused her children.“This is the most disgusting thing I’ve ever experienced. These were two sweet, innocent children and they robbed us,” Rosita Martin said of the Department of Social Services. “They robbed us of our happiness with them.”She said the Department of Social Services notified the family Friday that Damaud had died. Brian Schleter, a spokesman for the Department of Human Resources, said the agency had been trying to contact Tamekia Martin since Damaud’s death, but could not immediately reach her.Rosita Martin on Friday said she is devastated by her grandson’s death. She had become a licensed foster care provider after the children were first taken into state custody in 2006, and said she had been fighting ever since to keep the children in her care. She said she was never told where Damaud was living, and still does not know where her granddaughter lives. Rosita Martin said she has not seen her granddaughter since 2009.“They stole them from us and wanted us to believe that they had a right to do this,” Rosita Martin said, tears streaming down her face. “I’ve been fighting diligently all day every day. Those children didn’t deserve any of this. He was such a sweet little one, a sweet little boy. And nobody got a chance to see his beauty.”Screen shot from the LifeLine Inc. website.According to the Anne Arundel County Police report, Tamekia Martin’s parental rights had been terminated at the time of Damaud’s death. The Baltimore City Department of Social Services is listed as the boy’s legal guardian. Damaud had been in LifeLine’s care since Dec. 4, 2013.Sharfstein said Damaud’s group home was inspected regularly by the state, and reviews this year indicated more significant problems than in the past. A survey by the state in February found that four of eight employees did not have documents to support the successful completion of training for the special needs of the children at the facility. A complaint was filed in May alleging neglect at the facility because of a youth’s bed sore. In June, the state noted inadequate staffing at the facility.“In 2014, they began to have more significant violations, and those included problems with the care that they were providing and that led us to No. 1, intensify our oversight, No. 2, start a process of closing them and transitioning the youth,” Sharfstein said.The facility indicated it would give up its license in September, and the remaining children were moved over the July 4 weekend.LifeLine did not immediately return messages seeking comment.The Baltimore Sun first reported the boy’s death and previous problems with the facility. read more
Ever wonder how a fashion designer comes up with themes, looks, and new combinations?

A debate was raging across social media on Monday after a former TV presenter in Cyprus, Melanie Steliou, posted photographs of herself breastfeeding her child that were taken down by Facebook after someone reported them.Steliou had initially shared the photographs on Sunday and was subjected to a barrel of bullying, she said in a later post describing her reaction to the onslaught of negative responses she had seen.Saying that Facebook’s reaction in taking down her post was probably automatic as they work with algorithms, Steliou said she messaged the social media giant to restore her post.Nevertheless, on Monday she said she wanted to re-enforce the message that there shouldn’t be any shame linked to breastfeeding a child and re-posted the same photographs.“A few years ago I did a nude photo shoot for raising awareness for (an) AIDS campaign and no one reacted negatively to the sight of a nude woman! But breastfeeding is offending? Does this offend you?”Some of the photos are from the day she delivered her new-born son and she fed him for the first time.Commentators in support of her decision to re-upload the pictures said breastfeeding is a holy and natural thing.One man however sarcastically said “we had nothing better to do than see your breasts in photos because you want to breastfeed in public. And you post it, you don’t like criticism and then you react.“There are corners and cars you can go to to breastfeed, not publicly and putting photos on Facebook. Do something else to show off, not breastfeed.”His comment however was hit back with people questioning whether when it’s time for him to eat, he goes into a corner, a car or a bathroom.Other women heralded her decision and said society in Cyprus needed to move forward and away from the close mindedness that has a hold on many of its citizens.Steliou said after her initial post, she was first a little bit shocked because she hadn’t expected the negativity “but then I felt disappointed reading some of the comments that were borderline bullying,” but was more disappointed that a lot of the comments were from women.“After I felt sad because in the society we live in, we consider it normal to stuff our babies with a bottle and leave to others to take care of. Chill, neo-Cypriots, our grandmothers used to give birth in fields and carried on working with babies on their backs that they breastfed under the trees.”Nevertheless, she said the positive messages she received encouraged her to re-post the photos “to support all those mothers that breastfed for years and had to deal with this racist society.”One of the debates under one of her posts concerned the Facebook guidelines that are against nudity to which she replied that the platform supports breastfeeding.Steliou said what sparked her decision to initially share the photos on Facebook was that about two weeks ago, she had put up a photograph on Instagram of her breastfeeding her son at the airport and that to this day she continues to receive messages about it.“I never expected to hear what I heard.”She also said that she was recently debating whether to attend a lecture as she had nowhere to leave her baby so when she went with her son and she started breastfeeding him, two women who assumed she was foreign due to her blonde hair began discussing her saying “is she not ashamed to breastfeed her child in public?
