Dozens of current and former New York City police officers, including famed corruption whistleblower Frank Serpico, turned out Saturday at a rally in support of getting free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick a job in the National Football League.
“The fact that this man is no longer in the NFL has nothing to do with stats on the football field, but for taking a knee and pointing out some of the flaws that have been tormenting people of color in this country for decades,” Justice League NYC co-founder Darius Gordon told the New York Daily News.
“It’s basically a diffuser panel,” he said, likening it to the way gardeners whitewash greenhouses in the summer to reduce the sun’s energy.
In Washington, the eclipse will reach its max at 2:42 p.m. and cover 82 percent of the sun, according to the Smithsonian. Perhaps the birds will stop singing, the milk will turn, and bats will pour from attics.
Laura Lynn Cross, 36, charged with sexual battery in Ohio after giving birth to her former student’s child, joins the growing number of women accused or convicted of having sex with adolescents.
Part of the trouble in getting people to recognize the very real damage done to adolescents and young teens who have sex with adult women is that males have to be sexually stimulated for intercourse to occur.
There, Bennett creates videos, writes books and comes up with ideas hoping to make kids like his daughter believe the impossible.
People don't expect you to write a children's book, or make an app, or a movie where kids can relate, and they love it, and it's really, really, really, really good," Bennett said. "The great thing about football is that gives you a platform where you can make a bigger impact to stand on," he said.
Dick Gregory, who became the first black stand-up comic to break the color barrier in major nightclubs in the early 1960s, a decade in which he satirized segregation and race relations in his act and launched his lifetime commitment to civil rights and other social justice issues, died Saturday.
“It is with enormous sadness that the Gregory family confirms that their father, comedic legend and civil rights activist Mr. Dick Gregory departed this earth tonight in Washington, DC.,” his son Christian Gregory wrote.
The NAACP called for a boycott of NFL games until Kaepernick gets an equal opportunity at making a roster for the upcoming season.
His backers say NFL team owners have blackballed Kaepernick because he staged a one-man protest last season on behalf of African-Americans and other minorities – by kneeling instead of standing for the national anthem before each week’s game. But critics have said his refusal to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” has been disrespectful to the nation and its service members.
“Nobody is suggesting that a liver transplant, cancer surgery or a cataract operation is ineffective or down to placebo,” says Andy Carr, a professor of surgery at the University of Oxford.
“Once you accept that some or all of the effect of the surgery you are doing is down to placebo, but you carry on doing it anyway, you have removed the only barrier between mainstream medicine and alternative medicine,” says Ian Harris, a professor of surgery at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. “You can no longer say, as a doctor, that homeopathy is rubbish because you’re doing the same thing.”
The remainder of England's series against West Indies will be "sad to watch", says former England captain Michael Vaughan.
"There are a lot of young players in the West Indies side and you need to give them time, but I find it difficult to think they can go on without any senior players," said Vaughan, who captained England in 51 of his 82 Tests. However, their decline from the all-conquering side of the 1980s can be traced back to the mid-1990s - they have not won a series away from home against a team other than Bangladesh and Zimbabwe since 1995.
If the Department of Education decides career-training programs don’t adequately prepare their students for employment, those programs can now dispute the agency’s findings with their own data with no baseline requirements as to the size of the sample — as long as DeVos deems them to be reliable metrics.
“We really needed this rule to be able to say, ‘At least there’s something ensuring our taxpayer dollars are being spent at programs that actually help students,’” said Jennifer Wang, the director of the D.C. office for the Institute of College Access and Success, a nonprofit that promotes college access. “We can’t be wasting taxpayer dollars on overpriced ineffective programs that don’t prepare students for employment if that’s the purpose of the program,” Wang added.
I wasn’t looking for a serious relationship after I graduated high school, so I guess you could say that what we had was nothing more than a summer fling.
I wasn’t exactly trolling for men when I attended my first Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, but I’d heard on good authority that a particular 12-step meeting near my home in Venice was the place to meet people on the Westside.

Tens of thousands of students who attended Corinthian Colleges, a now-defunct for-profit college chain, could be eligible for student loan relief.
About 41,000 students could be eligible for debt relief under the agreement, which is subject to approval by a U.S. District Court judge in Oregon, where Aequitas was based. “Tens of thousands of Corinthian students were harmed by the predatory lending scheme funded by Aequitas, turning dreams of higher education into a nightmare,” CFPB Director Richard Cordray said in a statement.
President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump will skip the Kennedy Center Honors, one of the nation's highest-profile event honoring performing artists, after some awardees threatened to boycott a pre-ceremony reception at the White House.
Past presidents have used the Kennedy Center Honors, now in its 40th year, as an opportunity to honor storied artists and entertainers with the White House reception followed by the president's attendance at a black-tie ceremony at the Kennedy Center.
It is our creation, it is our inheritance and it belongs to us.”. Founder of Identity Evropa, a white separatist group that endorses racial segregation.
“This is only the beginning, believe me - Whitey is done being pushed around by Marxist/Anarchist/Leftist anti-White scum, time for pushback!” President of League of the South, a "Southern nationalist organization that seeks the survival, well being and independence of the Southern people.". “There is a war against you, white men and white women, on the streets of our cities.”
