Laborin was “carrying a plastic bag containing burritos,” according to the complaint.

Posted By Staff

Date: May 25th, 2016

cowA mad cow in Norway is being put to death for killing a woman, according to a report.

The 80-year-old woman in Rødøy Municipality in Nordland was attacked and killed last weekend as she helped the cow give birth for the first time, The Local reported.

Oberlin students want to abolish midterms and any grades below C

Posted By Staff

Date: May 25th, 2016

oberlinStudents at Oberlin College are asking the school to put academics on the back burner so they can better turn their attention to activism.

More than 1,300 students at the Midwestern liberal arts college have now signed a petition asking that the college get rid of any grade below a C for the semester, and some students are requesting alternatives to the standard written midterm examination, such as a conversation with a professor in lieu of an essay.

The students say that between their activism work and their heavy course load, finding success within the usual grading parameters is increasingly difficult.

“A lot of us worked alongside community members in Cleveland who were protesting,” Megan Bautista, a co-liaison in Oberlin’s student government, said, referring to the protests surrounding the shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice by a police officer in 2014. “But we needed to organize on campus as well — it wasn’t sustainable to keep driving 40 minutes away. A lot of us started suffering academically.”  More

voteLOS ANGELES – A comparison of records by David Goldstein, investigative reporter for CBS2/KCAL9, has revealed hundreds of so-called dead voters in Southern California, a vast majority of them in Los Angeles County.

“He took a lot of time choosing his candidates,” said Annette Givans of her father, John Cenkner.

Cenkner died in Palmdale in 2003. Despite this, records show that he somehow voted from the grave in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010.

North Carolina school board votes to stop naming valedictorians

Posted By Staff

Date: May 23rd, 2016

valApparently working your hardest to be the best you can be — and being recognized for the effort — is one lesson a North Carolina school board no longer believes is worth teaching.

Citing what it calls “unhealthy” competition among students, the Wake County school board is the latest in the country to make valedictorians and salutatorians a thing of the past, The News & Observer of Charlotte reports.

The school board unanimously gave initial approval last week to a policy that would prohibit high school principals from naming valedictorians and salutatorians – titles reserved for the two graduating seniors with the highest grade-point averages – after 2018, according to the newspaper.  More

stoneA Summerville, South Carolina, High School student was arrested and suspended after writing about killing a dinosaur with a gun.

Venezuela, where a hamburger is officially $170

Posted By Staff

Date: May 22nd, 2016

hamCaracas – If a visitor to Venezuela is unfortunate enough to pay for anything with a foreign credit card, the eye-watering cost might suggest they were in a city pricier than Tokyo or Zurich.

A hamburger sold for 1,700 Venezuelan bolivares is $170, or a 69,000-bolivar hotel room is $6,900 a night, based on the official rate of 10 bolivares for $1.

But of course no merchant is pricing at the official rate imposed under currency controls. It’s the black market rate of 1,000 bolivares per dollar that’s applied.

But for Venezuelans paid in hyperinflation-hit bolivares, and living in an economy relying on mostly imported goods or raw materials, conditions are unthinkably expensive.  More
