Emily Wilson, 38, was collared last week following a confrontation with her spouse Kyle over whether he was having an affair. During the argument, investigators allege, Wilson waved a handgun and fired a shot into the couple’s bed.
Wilson, a high school teacher, was subsequently arrested when police responded to a 911 call placed by her husband.
(Salem, OR) — Governor Kate Brown today took action to require Bullseye Glass Co. to cease its use of several hazardous air pollutants, including lead, following air monitoring results at a daycare near the company that showed an immediate, short-term health risk from lead levels that were four times above the 24-hour benchmark.
“Public health and safety are my highest priorities,” Governor Brown said. “This swift action and public notification will help ensure the well being of local residents who live and work in the area. Clean air is vital to the health and safety of our community.”
At the direction of the Governor, the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) ordered Bullseye to cease and desist the use of lead—as well as arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, all chromium compounds, cobalt, manganese, nickel, and selenium in any uncontrolled furnace—for the next 10 days. DEQ will continue lead and industrial air toxics monitoring, and the Governor retains the authority to impose additional orders on the company as necessary.
Katie's just upset because the company has been producing stained glass for around three decades in her Portland neighborhood with no harmful effects; she just didn't realize it until recently because, after all, she spends almost all of her time in Salem, schmoozing other career Democrat politicians.
Thanks once again to OG for sending a copy of the release that floated through his own transom.
In a move spearheaded by environmentalists, the Portland Public Schools board unanimously approved a resolution aimed at eliminating doubt of climate change and its causes in schools.
“It is unacceptable that we have textbooks in our schools that spread doubt about the human causes and urgency of the crisis,” said Lincoln High School student Gaby Lemieux in board testimony. “Climate education is not a niche or a specialization, it is the minimum requirement for my generation to be successful in our changing world.”
Growing vegetables. We know that climate changes. As to the question of whether self-important little humans can exert any relevant impact upon planetary climate - it's unacceptable to discuss that. These are the same idiots who hate GMO crops. They restrict free discussion on climate change, accusing skeptics of human-caused change of being "science deniers" - while they themselves deny the science when it comes to GMO crops. They're like anti-vaxxers.
“It shouldn’t be hard to tell a five-foot-nine-inch white guy that he’s not a six-foot-five-inch Chinese woman,” he concluded in the video. “But clearly it is. Why? What does that say about our culture? And what does that say about our ability to answer the questions that actually are difficult.”
They've been there, done that, and they don't want any more of it.
To Sundeyeva, left-wingers seem to yearn for a workers’ revolution. “I would ask them: Have you ever lived under a revolution?” she said. “Do you know what it’s like? When someone comes and takes your family member in the night?”
Of course they don't; our Lefties are total morons.
Then and now: when I finished university I had amassed $2,500 in student loan debt. By contrast, a new survey done by the research firm TNS yielded some depressing numbers:
The survey found millennials, defined as those between the ages of 18 and 35, have an average student debt of $41,286.60.
Over a third opined that they would never have gone to college had they known the extent of the costs involved. A solid majority (59%) have "no idea" as to when their loans will be paid off.
15 percent of those polled by TNS said they weren't sure what their student loan balance was, and more than a third didn't know what the interest rate is on this debt.
Those polled also had a limited understanding of the intricacies of their student debt. Almost half said they "don't understand" how privatized student loans work, and 44 percent said they don't entirely grasp the difference between federal and private student loans. About a third had never even heard of student debt refinancing.
It's almost as if the loan industries are capitalizing upon undeveloped brains. The kids certainly seem woefully under-informed; one might say ignorant, when it comes to financial issues.
"You" being in this case, Melissa Click's job. Yes the fired nutty perfesser of "Media Studies" is back, fighting for reinstatement through an opinion piece published yesterday in The Washington Post. "What would our world be like if no one ever took a chance?" she asks rhetorically. Well, probably a lot safer; she was fired from University of Missouri after - among other things - slapping at a camera and yelling that she "needed some muscle over here" to get rid of a student journalist who was filming a student protest.
Click readily admits that what she did was wrong. But she argues that she was making a snap decision and that few have “earnestly asked whether my protected right to speak out as a US citizen requires that I must be perfect while doing so.”
Well, Mizzou took a chance when they hired that dimwit as a perfesser; among their duties is to serve as a role model for the students, which she admittedly did - but not in a good way. And so, following the release of police video (and the student video), she was suspended and then fired.
But she thinks what she did can be defended. Sadly, she's also allowed to vote in the coming elections.
A new crusade has emerged among college students who insist on insulation from the real world – now left-liberal campus activists demand safe spaces from U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents who recruit at campus job fairs.
Protesters at several campuses in Southern California and Arizona have demanded administrators cut all ties with the federal agency, and some have protested agents’ presence on campus. Students say border protection representatives make students – especially students in the country illegally – feel unsafe.
At UC Santa Barbara in late January, a parade of students boisterously demonstrated against border patrol recruiters at a campus job fair, loudly chanting “f*ck your borders, f*ck your walls.” One organizer told The College Fix agents’ attendance was “triggering” for undocumented students, adding “there is no space on this campus for an organization that continues to threaten the safety of students.”
Oh, no! "Triggering"! These little snowflakes have never been taught why illegal aliens are a bad thing, and they don't even realize that America has the most permissive legal immigration system on the planet. They are truly that ignorant.
Student activists at Brown University are complaining of emotional stress and poor grades after months of protesting, and blame the school for insisting that they complete their coursework.
“There are people breaking down, dropping out of classes, and failing classes because of the activism work they are taking on,” an undergraduate student [said]. “My grades dropped dramatically. My health completely changed. I lost weight. I’m on antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills right now. Counselors called me. I had deans calling me to make sure I was okay.”
Other students reported similar problems, describing maladies ranging from emotional distraction to panic attacks that they say caused them to skip assignments, miss class, and generally lose focus on keeping their grades up.
Fortunately for us, Brown's private, so tax dollars aren't involved here. Still, theses kiddies are redefining the term, "pathetic". It'll be amusing when they get out into the real world and find out that nobody gives a rip about their "demands", their need for "trigger warnings", or even their all-important feelings. Those jerks will all be taking antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications for life. And they'll still be idiots.
