Baby boomers also didn't have to compete with women or people of color when it came to jobs or forging a prominent place in society. My boomer father talks often about how at the age of 18 they could get good, family supporting jobs by just walking into places off the street. I'm Gen-X with a millennial son and luckily I have parents that understand how different their reality was from the one kids are facing today.
A few years back a book was written about boomers called A Generation of Sociopaths: How the Baby Boomers Betrayed America. I heard the author interviewed and it was hard to argue some of his points.
There's a fantastic alt-history novel called River of Teeth about a misfit gang of hippo-riding cowboys hired to exterminate feral hippos in the Louisiana bayou.

Usually, female teachers grade boys more harshly than girls. But I guess if you're fucking the boys you're probably going to give them better grades.
Edit: Linked to the wrong research article, sorry! The one I wanted is by the same author, but I grabbed the wrong one. Duh. Here is the right one.

Put your pitchforks down! Or at least don't sharpen them too much, yet. There seems to be a little more to this story than the article states. Here's the complaint.
TL;DR- She wants to teach reading/language arts to students on the Extended Foreign Language ("EFL") track. She previously taught reading/language arts to students on other tracks. The principal has made up a rule that requires reading/language arts teachers to speak Spanish, but not math or science teachers for EFL students. The district's handbook lists no Spanish-speaking requirement.
This actually brings up a serious issue in Administrative law. The principal's rule may be arbitrary and capricious considering the fact that the other teachers don't have such a requirement. The arbitrary and capricious standard is extremely deferential to the defendant (the school district) but the other facts in the case may be troublesome in defending this lawsuit.
EDIT: ¡¿Oro?! ¡Dios mío! (that's Spanish, but I wouldn't ask the plaintiff to help you translate if I were you)

It's a rather robust finding in psychology that on average, men are better than women at mental rotation and other visuospatial tasks. It's not entirely unreasonable that this could lead to differences in average parking skills. Here's a paper that looked at parking skill in particular and found men were more accurate and faster. But, small sample, only about 30 participants of each sex, and I don't know if they've adjusted for experience beyond a splitting into beginner and experienced drivers (men drive much more).
It reminds me of "No dumb bastard ever won a war by going out and dying for his country. He won it by making some other dumb bastard die for his country," spoken in Patton the movie, but apparently not by Patton the man (source).
It seems like an OK motivating line before the battle when everyone is OK, but expressing the same sentiment after the fact about a guy who can't raise his arms above his head? Total dick move.

A plane ticket from Birmingham AL to Orlando FL, roundtrip, is roughly the same distance as the round-trip in the article. The ticket, per the article, cost $60 (Roughly 42GBP). A roundtrip ticket from Birmingham to Orlando is $285.
Same distance. Same travel restrictions (neither require passport or anything, because one is in the Eurozone and the other is in the same country...), yet one is $225 dollars more.

There are counties in Alabama where nearly 1 in 4 working age adults have a "disability" and are collecting large tax free benefits every month.

He claimed this before. The FBI investigated it and found that it was bullshit.
>The FBI interviewed Mateen on two occasions in 2013 related to his purported connection to the Tsarnaev brothers, the first known time Mateen drew the attention of federal law enforcement. Ultimately, bureau investigators determined that Mateen had invented the connection and did not pose a security threat.
This guy had a history of making stuff up about connections to Islamist terror, I'd suggest to seem tough to those around him, but that part is still speculation.
The turning of the cheek is to refuse being treated as an inferior, or being humiliated. The verses following it show Jesus taking the idea of fair revenge(Old Testament teaching), and teaching his followers to forget revenge all together: fair revenge or not.
The catholic teaching acknowledges the natural human reaction is one of retaliation.
When someone robes you of your clothes, he is doing you wrong and it's understandable that you want to rob him back. But "do not seek revenge."
It's important to understand that -not seek revenge- is not pretending a problem doesn't exist, or ignoring it. It's not head-in-sand syndrome.
Rather seeking other ways of solving a problem and calming the immediate situation.
edit: so let's say you're an average person during that time. You're walking back to your village and someone robs you with a knife. You could pull out your knife and get into a knife fight that might kill you, him or both of you. Jesus is saying instead diffuse the situation and deal with it later.

Out of curiosity, I decided to look up the various dictionary definitions to see whether there were any sense in which the statement wasn't just bullshit. From Merriam-Webster, "witness, <em>n</em>.: 4. one who has personal knowledge of something"
The world's population is larger today than at any previous US presidential inauguration, and modern digital & social media make the worldwide spread of information easier than for all former inaugurations with the possible exception of Obama's, so...it depends on what the meaning of 'is' is...(forthcoming drinking games based on WHPS ~~doublespea~~ statements may kill a lot of us the next few years)

He did an interview two days ago with the Australian morning show Kyle and Jackie O. It's kinda weird. Talks about killing them and them harassing his wife.
I was sleeping at the time and starting waking while the radio was interviewing this guy that was talking about killing aliens (and of course he had an American accent, made sense). I was super confused about what was going on. Anyways, I completely forgot about it until I just saw this Reddit post.

MLB is a Giant^TM dick when it comes to trademark enforcement. They went after little leagues teams that used names similar to major league teams like the Chatham A's and the Harwich Mariners.
Normally, a cease and desist letter is sufficient to protect a trademark, but MLB feels the need to use federal law enforcement to confiscate a dozen panties. You think a small business would get that kind of service with a federal agency? Yeah right. This is just another example of corporations taking control of the government for their own personal use.

In the early sixties, the author Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park, The Andromeda Strain, The Lost World, etc) was an English student at Harvard and had been getting mediocre grades. He was asked to write an essay on Gulliver's Travels and remembered an essay by on the subject by George Orwell. He retyped the essay and handed it in. It got a B-. That convinced him to switched to Anthropology but to take some pre-med courses as a fall back. (He did graduate from Harvard Medical School but soon switched to being a writer.)
I think I should point out that he dared to do this because he thought his instructor was not particularly well-read.

Instead of making a snarky and borderline useless comment about Russia, I'll just leave a book recommendation:

It's a pretty detailed read on how Russia slowly but surely conquered Siberia over a few hundred years, the horrid conditions their soldiers / conscripts had to put up with it, the merciless subjugation of the native peoples there, and so forth.
It also made me think "...Huh, we Americans marched west and killed everyone who got in our way. Russia marched east starting before we were even a fledging British colony. Man, we really are like two squabbling brothers at times, huh?"

I know that's true, in that war and every war, but I also know it wasn't universal.
I rolled my eyes during post-9/11 shocked conversations about 'torture' and insistence that actions approved by Rumsfeld or Cheney or CIA were "not torture" ... as if the US didn't have a long, known history of torture, either directly by US hands or indirectly by armies or extra-judicial death squads that the US was supporting.
(South Vietnamese soldiers and officers were reportedly engaging in torture with such brutality to the point of shocking some Americans.)
(I still recall some graphic stories I won't repeat here by members of Vietnam Veterans Against the War in a large photo-journal book I found on a table at college in 1979.)
Phoenix by Douglas Valentine was compelling and shocking, yet he stuck pretty close with what he could prove and what he thought was legit interviews, not rumors, not taking a communist advocacy PoV.
One subject I recall was a Seal or Special Ops guy who was both a badass and held his ethical oath in high regard. He refused to allow an officer to mass murder a group of Vietnamese villagers, rather than take the time and expense of driving them back to their village. He chose to stand in front of the villagers and dare the officer to shoot him.
Probably would have killed that Special Ops guy too but he was a well-known badass with connections.
From what I've heard it was the soldiers who were the most true believers in military honor and political doctrine who were the most disappointed, disillusioned, and mentally fucked up by the reality and by the mentality of some of their leaders.

I also found this interesting about the uselessness of standardized tests as a whole:
> “Put another way, Tienken et. al. have demonstrated that we do not need to actually give the Common Core-linked Big Standardized Test in order to generate the “student achievement” data, because we can generate the same data by looking at demographic information all by itself.
Tienken and his team used just three pieces of demographic data—
1) percentage of families in the community with income over $200K
2) percentage of people in the community in poverty
3) percentage of people in community with bachelor’s degrees
Using that data alone, Tienken was able to predict school district test results accurately in most cases.”

New York has a population of 8.6 million, which means only 99/233 countries in the world has a larger population.
Add to that how shootings are more common in urban areas than in rural areas and that the numbers grow as population density gets higher. And that crime rates increase exponentially as wealth inequality gets larger, which certainly is true for a city of the mega-rich like NYC. And that the US is the country with the most guns in the world.
Add it all together and it's really not as bad as it initially sounds.
Compare it to Chicago which had 3000 shootings in 2016 and 2500 in 2017 with a population of 2.7 million.
Well, psychopath, not sociopath.
Some clinical psychologists have been able to "hack" empathy in said psychopaths by basically laying out a really strong and rational argument for empathy, on the basis that said psychopath benefits from empathy (in a selfish way). It's different from the empathy most people naturally have, which (IIRC) is basically a chemical phenomenon that happens in the brain, given to us via genetics and enforced through our upbringing.
It's fascinating stuff, and this is a fairly comprehensive book on the topic, written by a very interesting authority in the respective field.

Appropriate and necessary feminine hygiene items will be provided within the supply manifest to give them everything they need to handle this normal female biological function (sound like Spock, don't I?!). Second, they may choose to take specific medications that help to suspend their cycle for a longer period of time, thereby lessening their need to deal with it."
If you'd like a more in depth look Radley Balko's book The Cadaver King and the Country Dentist: A True Story of Injustice in the American South is really good. Warning, it may cause you to lose faith in the government institutions and the American criminal justice system.
Nothing wrong about finding the "deep hidden meaning in songs". Take Wings for Marie and 10,000 days - the fact that it is about Keenan's mother's 27 years anguish in paralyzed state until death ("Ten thousand days in the fire is long enough"). Or the brilliant, hidden mathematics in Lateralus - It's amazing stuff, and adds a lot of depth to the song. It's being pretentious assholes about it that make it seem like a bad thing.
A firetruck coming out would be to prevent someone from losing their use of their property. By parking in your driveway, they've taken your use of your property.
I once called the police on the police because four cruisers came into my apartment parking lot with lights flashing. They all stopped right in the driveway blocking a half dozen cars in. They got out and went into the building across the way. An hour later and they're still there and I had no way to get my car out of my spot. I get it that there are emergencies, but they could have driven literally 50 feet and parked in the guest parking and people could have gotten in and out without bothering anyone. About five minutes after my call someone came out and moved all four cruisers.
"Empathy" and "caring" are not exactly the same thing. It's possible to care tremendously about people or other animals without empathy. Some even go so far as to argue for rational compassion rather than empathy.
Gross profit, which doesn't take into account operating expenses or taxes.

Columbus was sent abroad by King Ferdinand II and Queen Isabella of Spain. They had bankrupted the economy. They had decreed that all Jews were to be expelled, converted, or murdered. (They did this to cancel their debts to the Jewish bankers from whom they had borrowed money. They figured no one would ask questions if they simply expelled all Jews.) Columbus’ job was to create new revenue streams.
This was about genocide in Spain and in the New World. Naturally, many of Columbus’ aides and navigators were Jewish, because they didn’t really want to stay in Spain. Portugal was temporarily a safe haven for Jews, and Portuguese became a code word for Jew. Source: Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean. (No, it’s not antisemitic.

Copied and pasted from https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/H._L._Mencken :
No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.

One of my profs in grad school worked extensively in Haiti on tree-planting projects. One of them involved purchasing plots of land and hiring locals to plant tree saplings; it didn't work very well as far as getting trees to grow since the same locals would let their goats onto the plots at night to eat the saplings.
My profs innovation was to instead give the saplings away for the locals to plant on their own property and raise as essentially a cash crop; it also largely bypassed the permanent chain of corruption running from DC through the Haitian government. Since the project was very successful, resulting in millions of trees planted, it of course had the plug pulled on it after three years.
For anyone interested in Haiti, I heartily recommend these two books: <em>Travesty in Haiti</em> and <em>The Great Haiti Humanitarian Aid Swindle.</em>

> Adblock plus don't want no ads they want better nicer ads.
That you have to pay them for. 30% of the whitelist revenue, in fact. They try to justify this by saying that "90% of our partners aren't charged", ignoring the fact that the remaining 10% drive the vast majority of the ads (what percentage of ads on the internet are run by Google, you think?) and the 90% that they're "not charging" would barely give ABP any profit after the legal fees involved in the arrangement.
ABP wants to be profitable. That's it. Holding the companies up to an "Acceptable ads" standard is a way for them to avoid destroying their own userbase; their per-user revenue would go up by letting in any ad but their user count would go down as a result. They're just using public relations tactics in order to stay popular:
> We're not doing this for money, we're doing this to help you! Really!
ABP has decided to turn their software into a racket in order to sustain the development. That's their choice, just the way it's the choice of people to move to a different program.

I just wished to point out, that what you just did there... the ad hominem logical fallacy (beginning of the vid), actually does a huge disservice to yourself, and anything you stand for or believe in sufficiently to speak out about.
This is because it is usually a strong indicator that there is indeed no actual substance or logic behind your point, and that you must resort to calling people names, or in this case making derogatory racial comments.
n. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.
This is related to how in Malaysia they have state backed racial discrimination policies, where it's easier for native Malays to go to university as well as be employed compare to the Chinese and Indian communities.
Smuggled films/shows actually have been a pretty big driving force in getting North Koreans knowledgeable of reality outside of the country. Maybe to us first-worlders, we'd think that if we were in their shoes, we'd want something "more useful/informative".... But foreign films and shows are what they like and want, and it's working.
But if you don't like that idea, know that people also smuggle radios, laptops, dvd players, etc.. into the country, and there are multiple broadcast programs specifically to inform North Koreans about the outside world. And there is a South Korean TV show "Now on My Way to Meet You" that features North Korean refugees showcasing their improved lives and sharing their stories of escape, another show that also gets smuggled in.
If you have access to PBS and want to know a little more about this in North Korea, watch this: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/secret-state-of-north-korea/ , and for those without access to PBS, use Hola.
My guess is that bulb socket provides DC (probably 5V or 12V), which ironically can't be used by most LED bulbs even though the actual LEDs in the bulb do use DC. You can pretty easily check using a multimeter, but if I'm right you can use something like this:
Weight is not the only factor in stopping distance. The larger contact patch of the tires along with high quality 4-wheel anti-lock discs can make SUVs stop quite quickly. I looked this up by Consumer Reports and the Acura MDX is stopping there with an Impreza WRX. A Sequoia can stop in 128 feet. That is impressive considering it has a full frame under-neath it.
If you want to take that argument further, the Tesla Model S is in the same weight class of some SUVs and it handles quite gracefully. SUVs aren't the crappy solid axled, rear-drum brake over-heating Suburbans in the 80s and 90s anymore.

According to this article by NPR, he's been a Flat Earther "for maybe almost a year." So at least he's a credible inside source.
> Twenty-five states do not set a minimum age at which a person can get married, and eight more set it at an age lower than 16. Alaska and North Carolina, for example, set the age at 14. In New Hampshire it's 13 for girls, 14 for boys.
> In all of these states, minors who are below a certain age — it varies from state to state — must still get a judge's approval to marry.
MS has a simple tool that gives you a reasonably detailed view of what a process is up to. I recommend it for people who aren't quite as up on debugging but understand how the Windows filesystem and registry work.
Read The Millionaire Next Door. It talks a lot about how many successful people in high-income jobs don't have a lot of wealth because that illusion of wealth is more important.
Its like "dressing for the job you want, not the one you have" mentality, except its a lot more detrimental to your overall financial health.
The A-10 cannot and will not survive in a contested airspace environment. In the 1980's the USAF estimated the entire fleet of A-10's (300+ aircraft) would be gone in two weeks if the Soviets came through the fulda. Fast forward 30 years, and they just won't survive in anything but total Air supremacy.

Except, you know, rocket science, astronomy, theoretical physics, quantum physics, meterology, etc.
>Global average temperatures have been dropping for 20 years
Source? I did a search and literally every result says that they've been increasing.
^(Ah, yes, they are very similar words (and in point of fact have identical roots, which raises interesting questions about things like the perception of the economic value of women in archaic times, but that is perhaps a discussion better saved for another day)^), ^(however the verb "husbanding" can be used to mean "the act of a man marrying someone." Further reading can be found at http://www.dictionary.com/browse/husbanding.)
This is a country that kidnapped a film director so they could force him to make Godzilla knockoffs. That's not wild speculation, that's history. Given such a track record, I tend to keep an open mind. The event certainly does not prove future schenanigans but whenever I hear an alleged North Korea story my first reaction is, "Well, they've been known to do weirder things."
I just googled "standard issue swiss army underwar" and the second hit was for this product on amazon
I don't blame the women for not wanting to wear those. Looks like it could be pretty baggy in some areas.
