allAfrica.com: South Africa: Classifying 'Corrective' Rape As a Hate Crime

allAfrica.com: South Africa: Classifying 'Corrective' Rape As a Hate Crime | HA Regulations | Scoop.it

South Africa has proven to be one of the most progressive countries on the African continent in terms of observing tolerance and people's rights, especially the rights of minority groups.

However, although South Africa has made positive strides in equality and in guaranteeing rights, especially pertaining to sexual orientation, the country has seen a dramatic rise in brutal attacks against lesbians. This is in spite of Section 9 of the South African Constitution of 1996, which guarantees the right to equality and prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, as well as in spite of South being a signatory to the 2008 United Nations Human Rights Council Resolution on Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity.

How Usain Bolt Could Go Even Faster - Slate

How Usain Bolt Could Go Even Faster - Slate | HA Regulations | Scoop.it

After winning the 200-meter dash on Thursday, Usain Bolt, the world's fastest and most-modest man, regaled the press with tales of his own excellence. Bolt’s records are not out of line with the logistic fit to the historical data….there is nothing in Bolt’s records to suggest that the predictions made here are inaccurate or that human speeds in the 100-meter and 200-meter races are limitless.

How Fast? Usain Bolt & Human Performace Limits | HA Regulations | Scoop.it

Many will wonder if anyone can repeat Usain Bolt's feat in Berlin in 2009, when the Jamaican clocked 9.58 seconds, lopping 0.11 seconds—aeons in a sprint—off the previous world record. The end of competition is not risked by the reaching of human athletic performance.I'm hoping for a 9.47.

Is Usain Bolt The Most Dominant?

Is Usain Bolt The Most Dominant? | HA Regulations | Scoop.it

Bolt is just the second to defend his gold in the men's 100m. To put that in perspective, consider that there have only been two larger winning margins in the 12 Olympics since they started measuring times to the hundredth of a second.
