Students in Louisiana thought
this math symbol looked like
a gun. Police were called

Miami Herald, by Scott Berson

A discussion among students at Oberlin High School in Oberlin, La., about a mathematical symbol led to a police investigation and a search of one of the student’s homes, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office. On the afternoon of Feb. 20, detectives investigated a report of terroristic threats at the school, where they learned that a student had been completing a math problem that required drawing the square-root sign. Students in the group began commenting that the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number, looked like a gun.

The radical sign or radix used for square roots will now be removed from all schools./S

If these mushheads can´t tell the difference between a radix and a gun, no wonder they think ARs are machine guns. For that, we have American public education to thank.

So - the cops seeing the symbol (withholding
laughter here) proceeded to search the house of the enlightened kid? See what happens when you DO pay attention in school - you get "rewarded" in the most nonbeneficial way.

Sadly look how well the anti gun indoctrination and brainwashing of our kids is working. It’s like a brain eating bacterial disease. When I was a kid we played guns all the time. Cowboys and Indians, cops and robbers, army combat, you name it. It was all play. No one ever got hurt. As I got older say around 13 or so, I got into the NRA student shooting sports. We were issued a single shot .22 and were taught gun safety, and how to shoot, and we had shooting competitions. It was a lot of fun. Now days the very thought of these activities is met with horror and fear. This isn’t the America I was raised in any more.

Lots more of these symbols probably frighten them too. The ´not equal´ sign is harsh, demeaning, and encourages bullying. The pi sign looks like a Russian letter - more proof of collusion. And the multiplication X sign could be a clandestined swastika where the little hooks are just hidden.

Discrimination and Disparities

I don´t mind saying that this column represents a grossly understated review of "Discrimination and Disparities," just published by my longtime friend and colleague Dr. Thomas Sowell. In less than 200 pages, Sowell lays waste to myth after myth not only in the United States but around the globe. One of those myths is that but for the fact of discrimination, we´d all be proportionately represented in socio-economic characteristics, such as career, income, education and incarceration. The fact of business is that there is no evidence anywhere on earth, at any time in human history, that demonstrates that but for discrimination,

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blasted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday over his criticism of Israel´s resonse to the protests on the Gaza border over the weekend. "The most moral army in the world will not be lectured by someone who for years is bombing civilian populations indiscriminately," Netanyahu said in a statement. "Apparently that’s how they mark April 1 in Ankara." Erdogan said in Istanbul on Saturday that he “strongly condemns the Israeli government for its inhumane attack," referring to the killing of 15 Palestinian protesters on the Gaza border on Friday.

Whenever SpaceX launches a rocket, you can bet the views will be spectacular. After all, SpaceX has cameras up and down its Falcon 9 rockets that offer live views from space as each booster soars into (and sometimes back from) space. So it was weird today (March 30) when, 9 minutes into an otherwise routine Falcon 9 launch of 10 Iridium Next communications satellites from California´s Vandenberg Air Force Base, SpaceX cut the feed. The video blackout was intentional because of "restrictions" from a U.S. government agency known for its own live views of Earth from space. "Due to some restrictions from

Iraq reacts to Erdogan for Shengal:

Shengal was on the agenda in the meeting Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim el Caferi held with Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Ahmet Yildiz. Caferi’s office issued a written statement after the meeting that said, “Iraq will not allow the presence of any forces that carry out military operations in neighboring countries on its territory.” Caferi said the Iraqi government won’t accept the Turkish forces invading the border and demanded Turkey pull their forces in the Bashika camp. Following the massacres in Afrin, Turkish President Erdogan frequently threatens Kurds with invasions. In a statement made on Monday, he threatened they could “one night suddenly” enter

‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’ is a moving
examination of faith and courage
Washington Post, by Ann Hornaday    Original Article
Posted By: Zarin- 3/22/2018 10:32:01     Post Reply
“Paul, Apostle of Christ” comes from the Affirm label, which has produced such Christian-themed dramas as “Heaven Is for Real.” Less interested in blunt proselytizing than more open-ended explorations of faith and its challenges, Affirm films have gratifyingly avoided the kind of Sunday-school pageantry that characterizes so many movies of the genre. “Paul, Apostle of Christ” is no exception. A portrait of the titular Christian convert and leader of the early church as he faces imprisonment and martyrdom at the hands of Roman oppressors, this absorbing drama benefits from lush production values and first-rate performances from a cast of seasoned

The diversity imperative demands dissimulation and evasion. The academic-achievement gap, the behavioral differences that produce socioeconomic disparities, and the ubiquity of racial preferences must all be suppressed in public discourse, since they undercut the narrative that white racism is the driving force in American society. This dissimulation was on display last week at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, when Dean Ted Ruger announced that law professor Amy Wax would no longer teach mandatory first-year law courses at the school. In a memo announcing his decision, Ruger accused Wax of “conscious indifference” to truth. It is Ruger, however, who has

The Federal Reserve of Atlanta has had to walk back, in a big way, its headline-making forecast that the first quarter would feature eye-popping economic growth. Where back in late January the central bank district was calling for a 5.4 percent GDP gain, it released a reading Wednesday for its widely followed GDPNow tracker that slashed that projection all the way down to 1.9 percent. Had the original forecast stuck, it would have been the best quarter since the Great Recession ended in mid-2009. As it stands, the new number puts growth closer to the 2 percent or so that has been

NextGen America, Steyer´s flagship environmental advocacy firm and political action committee, has paid to sponsor Politico´s California "Playbook" morning newsletter of top headlines every day this week. Steyer is using the California Playbook sponsorship to promote a special Sacramento screening of 13th, a documentary film on racism in the criminal justice system.

South African anti-apartheid campaigner Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has died aged 81, her personal assistant says. Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was the former wife of South Africa´s first black president, Nelson Mandela. The couple - famously pictured hand-in-hand as Mr Mandela walked free from prison after 27 years - were a symbol of the anti-apartheid struggle for nearly three decades. However, in later years her reputation became tainted legally and politically. Family spokesman Victor Dlamini said Mrs Mandela "succumbed peacefully in the early hours of Monday afternoon surrounded by her family and loved ones"

Viral videos posted on social media show teenagers snorting condoms as part of a so-called "condom snorting challenge." In the videos, teens put an unwrapped condom up one of their nostrils and inhale until the condom comes out of their mouth. Like other viral challenges, the condom snorting challenge has been around for years but recently reemerged on social media. In San Antonio, Stephen Enriquez, who teaches drug and alcohol prevention to parents, has also started to teach parents about dangerous online trends like the condom snorting challenge, KABB-TV reported.

Many Marjory Stoneman Douglas students behind the #NeverAgain movement don´t support a new requirement to carry only clear backpacks. Some see it as an invasion of privacy, and some say it´s not the change that´s needed to ensure school safety. Junior Cameron Kasky tweeted a photo of his clear backpack full of tampons Tuesday as a comment on the measure. As of Tuesday morning, the photo was retweeted nearly 2,000 times. He followed up with a comment about tampon prices, also making a point to say women´s health products should be easier to access. Last month, families of the Florida

With the U.S. Census Bureau reporting yet another year of population loss for the city, it doesn’t take an investigator to determine the causes. The city’s scary record of 343 homicides in 2017 affirms the city’s well-known reputation as a dangerous place to live. Even if 2018 has fewer homicides, it doesn’t take a fortune teller to predict that this year’s homicide rate will be high. Until the city substantially reduces its homicide and other crimes rates, people will continue to view the city as dangerous and be reluctant to stay or move here.

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III informed President Trump’s attorneys last month that he is continuing to investigate the president but does not consider him a criminal target at this point, according to three people familiar with the discussions. In private negotiations in early March about a possible presidential interview, Mueller described Trump as a subject of his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Prosecutors view someone as a subject when that person has engaged in conduct that is under investigation but there is not sufficient evidence to bring charges. The special counsel also told Trump’s lawyers that he is

Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, fired back at Trump after the president´s Twitter tirade urging Congress to invoke the “nuclear option” -- requiring only a simple majority to pass legislation -- in order to pass bills for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and tough immigration reform.
