Why are people declaring that they want to be a Beta tester, yet they are still using the Facebook section? Am I missing something here? Did I mention how handsome Idris Elba is?
I came for the idiocy. I stayed for the Idris Elba.
I love how African Americans make up a LARGE sector of the conservative households in the US, yet the list is crafted only to include white American conservatives. Black American households are almost intrinsically Christian in the US, yet you constantly forget (or maybe you don’t care). I guess if it doesn’t involve the LGBT community, accuracy doesn’t matter anymore. Remember that whole “other” Civil Rights movement that Americans were embroiled in not too long ago?! Remember all of the Negro spirituals that doubled as freedom songs? I took a long break from this site. Now I remember why.
This is an incredibly unfortunate event, but it does not warrant any of these school officials losing their jobs. Rather than bully the security guard in the school or blame the overworked teacher’s aides, let’s consider whether these people were ever provided with the tools they needed to complete their jobs successfully in the first place. Let’s consider that the school building in which this special education school exists also houses two additional city schools. The building has multiple exits. Why is the building only allotted one security guard in the lobby of a building with multiple exits? How on earth could this guard monitor everything at once? Furthermore, if the school building houses general education and special education students, how can each adult in the school distinguish between what student is special needs and what student is general ed? For that matter, the school aides/teacher are outnumbered by special education students who each require their own special attention. When some of the students were behaving disruptively and distracting the adults on hand, were they still not doing their jobs by trying to contain the crowd with the resources they had on hand? I understand that this mother is extremely distressed, but her demands are unreasonable. Her son has run away several times (according to news reports), yet she believes its enough to simply write this on an individual survey given out by an individual teacher? This mother should have made the entire school administration know that her son is not only special ed but often runs away from home. I do not think that this school environment was adequate for Avonte. Once Avonte began running away from home, his mother should have ensured that he was in a school that had fortified egresses, even if that school was in another location. It’s nice to have her son go to a convenient local school, but it simply wasn’t suited for his needs. Remember, Avonte was receiving a free public education. Avonte’s mother was not paying to have this school provide any extra security outside of the security allotted to the other students. I hope this mother can one day come to terms with this tragedy, but I think grief is breeding unreasonable expectations in this circumstance. And, as is the fashion, those in charge of the school system will look for someone to blame as a result.
I definitely see six black people, but no “people of color.” What a silly term. It’s like saying: white people are the only unique race and everyone else is just bunched up in this ‘and the rest’ category. Blacks are a very distinct race in this world. Acknowledge it. Also, seeing Paul Walker on that 2000 cover was a bit of a gut punch. Still sad about that.
So, this young man lies dead and NOONE has to account for his death?! Really, the “people” on this grand jury couldn’t even find it in themselves to have this young man’s death brought to a trial? So, NOONE is responsible for the death of a human being? Is anyone responsible for anything anymore, or are all acts justifiable (however heinous) as long as they can be cleverly explained away?
You are an idiot, my friend. You just seem to be looking for anything (even a ridiculously out of date example) just to cover up something wrong. India is WRONG on all accounts here. Just admit it.
And this is what Indians are rioting in the street and burning pictures of our president for? To protect what? All of the energy being put toward those riots should be channeled toward seeking out a solution for this modern-day slavery.
I knew there had to be a reason I am obsessed with this little lady. I heart Leslie Knope!
I began answering these correctly only when I began to forget the media’s representation of Pope Francis and started to remember that all popes say this type of stuff. The media’s representation of Francis is a farce. Both of these men are doctrinaire Christians and subscribe to a doctrine of nonviolence, anti-racism, loving the earth and your fellow man, as well as caring for the poor. The media is so tactile. They simply can’t see beyond those things they don’t see and touch (not unlike infants).
I’ve never witnessed such a knowledge deficit as when I seek to speak to anyone about teachers. Often I hear how lazy or overpaid teachers are. Are you kidding?! I have never seen a profession that devalues experience as I have in the new structures set up around teachers. In what other profession does a supervisor advise an experienced staff member to learn from novice workers? This is what’s happening to experienced teachers today. Experience and expertise take a backseat to novice, cheap, newcomers. Can you imagine telling an experienced doctored to learn from an intern, or an experienced police officer to take hints from a cadet? It’s ludicrous, but we (parents) just sit back and watch it happen, because some crooked politician has convinced us that teachers’ unions are evil. It’s a topsy-turvy world we live in when novelty trumps experience and gimmickry tops expertise.
How is Buzzfeed defining “success” now?
I am genuinely offended by this post because…soccer had its chance in America and it was patently rejected. Why do you always want us to care about soccer?! This is America. Learn the rules. Oh, and congratulations to those two ladies
Love love love love love love love love this show! There is no fan base on television more loyal than the fans of Hell On Wheels. If you moved HoW to 2 am on Thursday nights, the fans would follow. Just check out its chat room on AMC. It’s an insane asylum. AMC would be stupid to give up this show. It’s the only show that makes any money on Saturday nights.
This is why we really can’t get jobs in America. We get degrees in “social media,” in psychology, and in communications. While Asians and Indians get degrees in Science and Mathematics. Then, we ridicule American companies who hire Asians and Indians with real Science and Math degrees, while we flounder with degrees in USELESS nonsense. Wake up! Do not get a degree in a useless subject, then claim poverty or inequity when you can’t find a real job.
Is this even a debatable point anymore? Why is this an article? Of course, EVERYTHING Republicans do is just about Obama. Obama doesn’t have to say this. I mean, Republicans named the healthcare bill “Obamacare,” for God’s sake! Republicans (literal warmongers) came out AGAINST war because Obama was for it. Republicans (rabid Jingoist) came out in favor of foreign car companies, because Obama wanted to fund Detroit. They literally said (in front of moving cameras) that their number one priority was to make Obama a one-term president, and this was said during the 2008/9 financial crisis. It’s always been about him. Even the Bush days weren’t this bad. Not since the 1860’s has America seen this level of polarization between one party and a single man.
I’m not I favor of these constant American led skirmishes, but this makes me want to ask: what is the point of the United Nations? The leader of the UN upgrades the US president for wanting to act, but he (as the representative of the world community) just wants to do nothing? Is there nothing the UN can do? If not, what is their purpose? I hate to say this, but I’m starting to think something needs to be done in this country. These people are suffering. The UN is such a waste.
I’m sorry. I’m no Weiner fan, but do I exist in some alternate reality? When did Anthony Weiner have an affair? I thought he just took pictures of his pud and talked to chicks on Twitter.
I bet the people who are proclaiming these albums trash probably listen to classic or alternative Rock, but couldn’t really explain to you what makes “their” music so much better or “iconic.” Listen, rap is not my favorite genre, but even I can tell that this is a pretty cool collection of tunes. And, some of these covers are pretty classic. By the way, something tells me his parents don’t let him listen to the music. He probably just draws the covers.
This might apply in other cities, but the difference in mortgage/rent+train fare vs. Manhattan rent can never compare. Manhattan rent is incomprehensibly expensive. I’d rather live in a real house for a dime than live in a hovel for a quarter.
The Internet really has nothing to do with its time, right now.
Is this a joke?
Give it a rest critics. Create something already, or go home. I don’t know any Jay Z songs and still I know that he creates something, instead of criticizing those who create. Give it a rest already.
Anybody else think the term: jungle fever, is the worst thing ever? God, I hate Spike Lee for popularizing it. It’s so inherently racist. Blacks aren’t from the jungle, Spike. I hate you Spike Lee.
