SAN FRANCISCO — The hilltop cottage belonging to a lesbian couple who were the first same-sex partners to legally marry in San Francisco has become a city landmark. The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to give the 651 Duncan St. home of the late lesbian activists Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin landmark status. The home in the Noe Valley neighbourhood is expected to become the first lesbian landmark in the U.S. West, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. “They provided a place for lesbians who were really, really, really in the closet to hang out and dance, have holiday potlucks so they wouldn’t have to go home and hang out with their homophobic relatives,” said Shayne Watson, an architectural historian who specializes in LGBTQ heritage conservation and was active in the movement to get the home landmarked. Martin and Lyon bought the simple one-bedroom house, terraced up the hillside, as a couple in 1955, the same year they co-founded the Daughters of Bilitis, a political and social organization for lesbians. The group started as a social support organization but quickly transformed into activism and politics. “The Daughters of Bilitis didn’t have an office space, so 651 was really ground zero for the lesbian rights movement at the time. It was a place where people could be safe and reveal their sexuality," said Terry Beswick, executive director of the GLBT Historical Society. Lyon was a journalist who met her lifelong love, Martin, while working at a magazine in Seattle. The couple moved to San Francisco in 1953. Besides the political organization, they published a national monthly for lesbians and a book called Lesbian/Woman in 1972. Gov. Gavin Newsom was a newly elected mayor of San Francisco in 2004 when he decided to challenge California’s marriage laws by issuing licenses to same-sex couples. His advisers and gay rights advocates had the perfect couple in mind to be the public face of the movement. Lyon and Martin, who had been together more than 50 years by then, were secretly swept into the clerk’s office. They exchanged vows before a tiny group of city staffers and friends. Martin died in 2008, and Lyon in 2020, and the house was left to Martin’s daughter, Kendra. The property was sold in September 2020. After the sale, a loose organization called the Friends of Lyon-Martin House was formed to guard against demolition, with the GLBT Historical Society as a financial sponsor. The new owner, Meredith Jones McKeown, supports landmarking and protecting the cottage, the Chronicle reported. Within six months, the group will put forth a proposal, with a sidewalk plaque as “a bare minimum,” Beswick said. Beswick and Watson both want to preserve the interior as a student residency, public research facility and centre for LGBTQ activism and history. “No one wants to see a tour bus in front of the house,” said Watson, “but Phyllis and Del affected so many lives, including my own, and I feel strongly that the house where they did it should stay in the community.” The Associated Press
It's a claim that has surfaced and been debunked before, but Republican lawmakers in recent days have given it new voice: the notion that the clause in the Constitution counting slaves as three-fifths of a person actually was a step toward ending slavery. The most recent example came from Tennessee state Rep. Justin Lafferty as part of a debate over whether educators should be restricted in how they teach about systemic racism in American history.

Novavax Inc's COVID-19 vaccine had efficacy of 51% against infections caused by the South African variant among people who were HIV negative, and 43% in a group that included people who were HIV positive, according to a new analysis published on Wednesday. The variant, known as B.1.351, carries mutations that threaten the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines, several studies have shown. Most vaccine makers, including Novavax, are testing versions of their vaccines to protect against emerging variants.
New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram has been diagnosed with a left low ankle sprain and has been ruled out of Friday night's game in Philadelphia. The Pelicans announced Ingram's status after a scan Wednesday confirmed the preliminary diagnosis he received when the injury occurred during Tuesday night's 108-103 victory over Golden State. Ingram was hurt in the second quarter and tried to play through the pain until leaving the game for good in the latter portion of the third quarter, having scored 13 points. The club says Ingram, who has averaged 23.8 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.9 assists this season, will be day-to-day after Friday night's game against the 76ers. Ingram is New Orleans' second-leading scorer behind Zion Williamson, who averages 27 points per game. The Pelicans, who have six regular-season games remaining, entered Wednesday two games behind San Antonio for the final Western Conference play-in spot, and three games behind both Memphis and Golden State. New Orleans plays its next five games on the road before finishing the season at home against the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/hub/nba and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. — A 15-year-old has sued in federal court for the right to play in the National Women's Soccer League, which doesn't allow players under 18. The lawsuit filed Wednesday in Portland, Oregon, on behalf of Olivia Moultrie alleges the league’s age rule violates antitrust law and also hinders her career development and chances of reaching the U.S. national team. “It’s always been a dream of mine to play professionally in the U.S. I know girls my age are competing around the world and I just want to get on the field and officially compete,” Moultrie said in a statement released by the firm representing her, Miller Nash Graham & Dunn. Moultrie, who trains with the Portland Thorns but does not play in games, is asking for a preliminary injunction that would her allow to play in the league, which opens the regular season on May 15. The lawsuit also points out the gender disparity in the rules at the top tier of soccer in the United States. “The truth is that if Olivia Moultrie was male, she’d already be playing in MLS,” attorney Max Forer said in a statement. “Further, she’s already eligible to play for the U.S. Women’s National Team but can’t officially play in the league that develops and prepares talent for the National Team, that’s unfair.” Moultrie, who signed a sponsorship deal with Nike when she was 13, can't join a team overseas under FIFA rules — meaning the NWSL is the only pro league available to her. The NWSL said it is currently in negotiations with its players' union on a collective bargaining agreement, which it said is where issues regarding terms and conditions of employment should be addressed. “Age requirements are a common feature of many men’s and women’s professional leagues in the U.S. and abroad. The rules that govern league operations are in place to support players and team operators and ensure the NWSL remains the premier women’s soccer league in the world,” the league said. "We will vigorously defend our league against this litigation because it seeks to change a long-standing rule and interferes with the collective bargaining process.” Anne M. Peterson, The Associated Press
New plans unveiled for the hotly-debated roadway bike lane through Stanley Park show concrete barriers will be installed the length of Stanley Park Drive later this summer. A statement from the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation says changes will be rolled out in three phases and will provide safer and more accessible ways to bike, drive, walk and roll though Stanley Park. "The plan builds on public and stakeholder feedback and user data to ensure safer access for all park users during a period when many Vancouverites are looking for ways to stay healthy outdoors during the COVID-19 pandemic," according to the statement. Phase one coming later this month calls for traffic cones to separate the bike and vehicle lanes on Stanley Park Drive, from Pipeline Road North to Second Beach. Signs and other traffic devices will be installed to direct drivers and cyclists. The seawall is remaining open to bikes, giving cyclists the option of either route. Phase two slated for mid-June calls for staff to evaluate the section of Park Drive from the roundabout near Lost Lagoon and Pipeline Road North. Phase three in July is when the concrete barriers arrive to replace the traffic cones. They will be installed the length of Stanley Park Drive, with access gaps at intersections and crosswalks and for emergency and service vehicles. The City of Vancouver has unveiled a three-phase plan for the spring and summer of 2021 for walkers, cyclists, skaters and motorists in Stanley Park. (City of Vancouver) The statement says work on the long-term Stanley Park mobility study continues and will incorporate feedback from this spring and summer's roll out. In March, the park board voted to reinstate a bike-only lane along the two-lane Stanley Park Drive, reducing vehicle traffic to a single lane. Critics have argued the decision is unfair to park businesses and people with accessibility concerns.
Paramount Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX: POU) announces that the following eight director nominees were elected at today's annual general meeting of shareholders:
Uber saw record demand in the first quarter as its food delivery business grew and ride-hailing began to see some recovery. The San Francisco-based company said Wednesday that its bookings jumped 24% to $19.5 billion __ an all-time high __ in the January-March period. That was far ahead of the $18 billion Wall Street was anticipating, according to analysts polled by FactSet. Uber said its delivery bookings rose 166% from the same period last year. Mobility __ or ride-hailing __ bookings were down 38%, and flat compared to the fourth quarter. But ride-hailing demand improved throughout the quarter, and by March ride-hailing demand had reached its highest level in a year, the company said. Uber said ride-hailing demand improved further in April as the pace of vaccinations increased in the U.S. and lockdowns ended in the United Kingdom. In some markets, including Miami and Hong Kong, ride-hailing demand was higher than 2019 levels. Uber said demand is increasing faster than its supply of drivers. Last month, the company said it planned to spend $250 million on sign-up bonuses and other incentives to lure drivers. Rival Lyft also showed signs of post-pandemic recovery in its first-quarter earnings report Tuesday, saying demand outstripped its expectations. “We’re finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel," Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said in a conference call with investors. One big question for Uber has been whether food-delivery orders will slow down once restaurants fully reopen. So far, that hasn't happened in markets like Sydney, which fully reopened dining in February. Nelson Chai, Uber's chief financial officer, said delivery customers do keep ordering, although some less often. But Chai said it remains difficult to predict exactly what will happen to delivery demand as markets continue to reopen and customers adjust their post-pandemic routines. In the meantime, Khosrowshahi said Uber Eats continues to add restaurant partners, reaching 700,000 globally during the first quarter. He said the company's pricing also remains competitive. Last week, rival DoorDash said it would begin offering lower-cost plans to counter criticism from restaurants that delivery fees are too high. Uber's first quarter revenue fell 11% to $2.9 billion, partly due to a $600 million charge for back payment of workers in the United Kingdom. After losing a court battle in March, Uber must classify its 70,000 U.K. drivers as its own workers and pay them minimum wages, among other benefits. Without that charge, Uber reported $3.5 billion in revenue, topping Wall Street's estimate of $3.27 billion. The company reported a net loss of $108 million for the period, or 6 cents per share. Analysts had forecast a 56-cent loss. Uber's shares fell about 4% in after-hours trading. Dee-Ann Durbin, The Associated Press
