Roger Ailes, who transformed cable news and then American politics by building Fox News into a ratings powerhouse, died Thursday. He was 77. ... Ailes was arguably the most powerful man in American media when he suddenly lost his job last summer. Gretchen Carlson, a former Fox anchor, sued him for sexual harassment, and other women came forward to support her claims. Carlson settled with 21st Century Fox, the network's parent company, for $20 million. read more

In a brief defending its ban on citizens from six Muslim-majority countries, President Donald Trump's Justice Department approvingly cited a segregation-era Supreme Court decision that allowed Jackson, Mississippi, to close public pools rather than integrate them. In the early 1960s, courts ordered Jackson to desegregate its public parks, which included five swimming pools. Instead, the city decided to close the pools. Black residents of Jackson sued. But in 1971, the Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, decided that closing the pools rather than integrating them was just fine. ... The ruling in Palmer v. Thompson didn't explicitly uphold segregation. But it did call for courts to avoid investigating the constitutionality of officials' motivations. read more

In a speech Thursday, Hillary Clinton criticized President Trump for appointing outspoken opponents of LGBT rights to the Cabinet and other top positions. "I think we have to face the fact that we may not ever be able to count on this administration to lead on LGBT issues," she said. Citing the terrible abuse of gay men in Chechnya, Clinton said the U.S. must "demand an end to the persecution of innocent people across the world." During her presidential campaign, Clinton was endorsed by several LGBTQ rights groups, including the Human Rights Campaign.

Your Brain on Politics: The Cognitive Neuroscience of Liberals and Conservatives

Can neuroscience provide evidence for a liberal and conservative thinking style?

Conservatives Big on Fear, Brain Study Finds

Peering inside the brain with MRI scans, researchers at University College London found that self-described conservative students had a larger amygdala than liberals. The amygdala is an almond-shaped structure deep in the brain that is active during states of fear and anxiety. Liberals had more gray matter at least in the anterior cingulate cortex, a region of the brain that helps people cope with complexity.

Friendly recommendation, Raystradamus:

Stop posting while intoxicated.

You're welcome.

"but let's do a little tidying up...." - #104 | Posted by afkabl2 at 2017-06-24 07:04 PM

Okay.

Let's do a little tidying up:

#18 "typing fast/double, sometimes triple tasking and fighting over a printer not working...yeah making that error tells you all about texas education. again,.,you're a punk with no clue of what you speak."...Babbles

OK, Babbles:

Lets pretend you have not spent your entire time here, since 2005, mutilating every grammar, spelling, capitalization and punctuation rule in the English language, shall we?

Now lets pretend you could have written in real 'subject, verb, object' grammar, and proof read your pearls of wisdom, and corrected the embarrassing 4th grade reading/writing level on display here every day, had you so chosen.

Now lets pretend that you could have cared enough about presenting yourself as a life long educator so that, had you wanted to, you could have put fifteen cents worth of effort into your communication and done it well.

That fantasy would hold more real truth than the content of any of the simple minded drivel that you puke out.

Don't like being called stupid?

Then stop being stupid.

Take some pride in your work.

If you don't care enough about living up to the standards of a self described professional educator, do all the other teachers in Texas a favor, and tell the world that you are a home schooled doofus who has never had the advantage of a real education. Stop bragging about Texas and admit that there is no worse example of public education failure on the Retort, than you.

Your posts are the turd in the punch bowl that other, proud, hard working teachers have dedicated their life to eliminating.

Own it.

"I'm tired of my tax dollars going to morons in government who think their power equates to wisdom and intelligence." - #100 | Posted by Raystradamus at 2017-06-24 06:30 PM

All of a sudden the idea of paying taxes is somewhat more palatable.

Hey, Raystradamus, ever figure out the whole hyperlink thingy you were having such a difficult time with last night?

:-)

Displaying your ignorance.

"I have no idea what you're raving about." - #23 | Posted by Raystradamus at 2017-06-23 09:15 PM

Comments sourced via hyperlinks too much for you?

You're welcome.

"I repeated my "plagiarized" comment..." - #23 | Posted by Raystradamus at 2017-06-23 09:15 PM

You repeated?

So you lied when you said "I only posted #16.".

Gotcha.
