    Wages were frozen in the last contract, which ended on Sept. 1, as the Pittsburgh-based company was suffering losses from a slump in the domestic steel prices.

The deal, which needs to be ratified by 16,000 workers across the country, comes days after U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross called steelmakers to share the profits from high steel prices with their workers.

  • In 'final column' missing writer Jamal Khashoggi says Arab states can silence media with impunity news

    Jamal Khashoggi's words could not be more powerful or more poignant. In a column published by the Washington Post on Wednesday night, the missing Saudi journalist says Arab governments have been given free rein by the international community to silence the media at an accelerating rate, in a piece that apparently foreshadowed his own fate. The writer has not been seen since entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul a fortnight ago. Turkish officials say they have obtained audio recordings that suggest he was tortured and killed although the government of Saudi Arabia insists it does not know what happened to the prominent dissident. In a note published with the column, Karen Attiah, global opinions editor at The Washington Post, said the piece  perfectly captured Khashoggi’s commitment to freedom in the Arab world: "A freedom he apparently gave his life for." Jamal Khashoggi has not been seen since entering Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago Credit: Hasan Jamali/AP She said she received it from his translator a day after he disappeared. “The Post held off publishing it because we hoped Jamal would come back to us so that he and I could edit it together,” she wrote. “Now I have to accept: That is not going to happen. This is the last piece of his I will edit for The Post.” The disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi In his piece, Khashoggi describes how the optimism of the Arab Spring in 2011 was quickly dashed, replaced by the Middle East’s version of the Iron Curtain, imposed by domestic forces as they grappled for power. The rest of the world has done little as journalists were arrested or newspapers silenced, he continues. “Instead, these actions may trigger condemnation quickly followed by silence,” he writes. “As a result, Arab governments have been given free rein to continue silencing the media at an increasing rate.” He calls for a modern form of the old transnational media – something akin to Radio Free Europe that began broadcasting during the Cold War – to provide a platform for Arab voices. “We suffer from poverty, mismanagement and poor education,” he writes. “Through the creation of an independent international forum, isolated from the influence of nationalist governments spreading hate through propaganda, ordinary people in the Arab world would be able to address the structural problems their societies face."

  • Witches plan multiple mass hexes of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh news

    The United States Senate was never really interested in holding Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh accountable after multiple women accused him of sexual assault and harassment. The witches of America are. Catland Books, an occult bookshop and community space in Brooklyn, has organized not one but two mass hexes on Kavanaugh. According to an Eventbrite page for the hex, the organizers say they plan to target the newly appointed justice as well as "all rapists and the patriarchy which emboldens, rewards and protects them." SEE ALSO: Brett Kavanaugh's use of the word 'emotional' exposes a gross double standard "We will be embracing witchcraft's true roots as the magik of the poor, the downtrodden and disenfranchised and it's[sic] history as often the only weapon, the only means of exacting justice available to those of us who have been wronged by men just like him," the organizers wrote. The first of the two events, scheduled for October 20, attracted enormous attention with more than 14,000 people expressing interest on Facebook. To accommodate more people, Catland added an additional mass hex event for November 3. The event costs $10 to attend, and 50 percent of sales for both nights will benefit Planned Parenthood, the Ali Forney Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Sylvia Rivera Law Project. "He will be the focal point, but by no means the only target, so bring your rage and and all of the axes you've got to grind. There will also be a second ritual afterward - 'The Rites of the Scorned One' which seeks to validate, affirm, uphold and support those of us who have been wronged and who refuse to be silent any longer," the Eventbrite invitation explains. Ahead of Kavanaugh's confirmation, Christine Blasey Ford accused the judge of sexually assaulting her at a gathering when they were both in high school. Though their September testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee prompted an investigation, the Senate voted to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on October 6. In the past, witches across the country have hexed President Donald Trump. None of these hexes stopped Trump from being president or Kavanaugh from becoming a Supreme Court judge, but it does seem to make their allies really, really uncomfortable. Every small bit of suffering counts. [H/T: Broadly] WATCH: Boston Dynamics 'parkour' robot took more than 20 attempts to nail it
