    An investigation into "discriminatory and highly offensive language" is ongoing at Westfield State University after a student reported finding a racial slur on her door. A senior at Westfield State shared a photo on social media alleging someone wrote "n****** live here" on a name tag taped to her door. The alleged incident reportedly happened in New Hall, a housing complex on campus for sophomore, junior and senior students. The black student tagged the college and Westfield State President Ramon S. Torrecilha in the post and received a quick response. Torrecilha sent a message to the campus community regarding the...

    The Alameda County District Attorney filed a felony charge against Kyle Chapman yesterday for possession of a leaded stick. The charges stem from a melee between Trump supporters and anti-fascists in Berkeley on March 4. Chapman was seen carrying a long baton into several fights and was filmed cracking the weapon over the heads of a masked antifa and other counter-demonstrators.

    Hillary Clinton is being urged by a group of prominent computer scientists and election lawyers to call for a recount in three swing states won by Donald Trump...Those states are Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, whose combined 46 electoral votes are enough to swing the result... the scientists, led by University of Michigan computer scientist J. Alex Halderman, “so far have only a circumstantial case” in all three states the deadline for requesting a recount is within the next week... the theory here is that Russia hacked into the three states’ vote-counting systems and produced just enough votes for Trump (or...

    <p>Donald Trump’s campaign and top Republican Party officials plan what one person called a “come to Jesus” meeting on Friday in Orlando to discuss the Republican nominee’s struggling campaign, according to multiple sources familiar with the scheduled sit-down.</p> <p>Though a campaign source dismissed it as a "typical" gathering, others described it as a more serious meeting, with one calling it an "emergency meeting." It comes at a time of mounting tension between the campaign and the Republican National Committee, which is facing pressure to pull the plug on Trump’s campaign and redirect party funds down ballot to protect congressional majorities endangered by Trump’s candidacy.</p>

    So my colleague and I were catching up after not seeing each other for a while. She’s just accepted a new position as an administrator at the community college up the street from where I work. I wanted to welcome her to the neighborhood and her new job. We arranged to meet at a Starbucks in between our two institutions on Capitol Hill in Seattle. We talked for maybe 30 or 40 minutes. It’s the kind of innocuous catch-up talk that two college administrators do when we’re trying to figure out what we’ve been up to since we last talked....

    LOUISVILLE, KY—By a nearly unanimous vote, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) voted to overlook or explicitly endorse a number of additional sins in what is being perceived as an attempt to slow its rapid pace of membership decline. As balloons came down, the PC(USA) commissioners danced in the aisles to the Kool & The Gang 1980 party standard Celebrate and some attendees openly wept for joy as the denomination announced their official endorsement of pride, gossip, sorcery, covetousness, theft, and sexual immorality as a general category. “Finally,” sobbed self-described “open gossiper” attendee Rebecca Arnett. “I no longer...

    The Basswood Research survey of 500 likely Republican primary voters, conducted on March 19 and 20, shows the Texas senator leading Trump by 4.8 points, 36.2 to 31.4. Ohio Gov. John Kasich trails with 20.8. Cruz’s lead expands dramatically in a head-to-head contest with Trump. If Kasich were to drop out before the primary, 47.8 percent of respondents say they would back Cruz, compared to just 36.2 percent for Trump.

    Last night Kelly on her show had two guests, one a weeny gop consultant, and they badmouthed Trump for several minutes. It was AFTER this that Trump made his tweets. You won't hear about the precipitating factor from the media. In other words, Megyn didn't take him on head to head or fearlessly, as she likes to consider herself, and instead hid behind two men, and had them make the offending comments as she sat there innocently nodding in agreement and leading them on. Strong women speak for themselves, and don't need to hide behind men’s trousers. Not fair and...

    You may not believe this, but Donald Trump may have started his run as president with highly dubious claim. After bounding on stage at his headquarters, Trump Tower, the bombastic billionaire looked up at the crowd that surrounded him in awe. “Whoa,” Trump said. “That is some group of people. Thousands. There’s been no crowd like this.” However, we were there, and it seemed like there were no more than a few hundred supporters lined up to watch Trump speak. Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks told Business Insider the campaign did not have an "official tally." However, she said it would...
  • Climate Change: Mr. Obama, 97 percent of Experts is a Bogus Number

    Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: Climate change is real, man-made and dangerous. President Obama tweeted that, and it has been repeated by countless others. It is tempting for a politician to claim that 97 percent of experts agree with you. But do they? The 97 percent claim was taken from a study paper by Australian John Cook, Climate Communications Fellow for the Global change Institute at the University of Queensland, and his colleagues, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters in May, 2013. The paper says nothing about the would-be dangers of climate change and it counts the number of...

    If you’re in a panic because the Internet told you that your shiny new SSD may lose data in “just a few days” when stored in a hot room, take a chill pill—it’s apparently all a huge misunderstanding, according to the man who wrote the original presentation all the fear is based on. In a conversation with Kent Smith of Seagate and Alvin Cox, the Seagate engineer who wrote the presentation that set the Internet abuzz, PCWorld was told we’re all just reading it wrong. “People have misunderstood the data that they’re looking at,” Smith said. Cox agreed saying there’s...

So it has it's own thread.

And 5% did not know who the voted for? That right there should instantly put this poll in...
