    NY Post ^ | 11/19/16 | Michael Kaplan and Chloe Kaplan
    Vice President-elect Mike Pence was booed Friday night at a performance of the Broadway hit “Hamilton.” Pence was walking to his seat at the Richard Rodgers Theatre when a few scattered claps turned into a thundering chorus of boos. The crowd continued to mock Pence throughout the performance, including during the song “Yorktown,” when Alexander Hamilton and Marquis de Lafayette sang “Immigrants, we get the job done.” They high-fived each other as the audience cheered. Brandon Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, addressed Pence after the curtain call, saying the diverse cast is “anxious” about his administration.

    A South Carolina elementary teacher is working to help his young students learn how to act like gentlemen, according to a report by WSMV. Raymond Nelson of Memminger Elementary in Downtown Charleston hosts 60 kids every Wednesday at the Gentleman’s Club, where the children are taught how to dress and act like gentlemen. He works with children who are at-risk children and came up with this idea to help the children. “I was thinking maybe if I have the boys dress for success,” said Nelson. “When was the last time you saw someone fighting in a tuxedo?” The club’s motto...

    A Hillary Clinton rally in Derry, New Hampshire was interrupted by a heckler Sunday, who loudly asked questions about the women who had accused her husband Bill Clinton of rape and sexual assault. Republican state representative Katherine Prudhomme O'Brien twice stood up and interrupted Clinton's stump speech. The second time, Clinton shot back saying, "You are very rude, and I'm not going to ever call on you." The exact questions were not picked up by cameras, but O'Brien told reporters afterwards that she asked about Bill's accusers. "I asked her how in the world she can say that Juanita Broaddrick...

    Full title: Don't microwave sausage rolls - it'll upset other faiths! New guidelines on communal kitchen etiquette for the workplace are suggested It may seem an innocent enough act to warm up your sausage roll in the microwave during lunch hour. But think again, because doing so could seriously upset colleagues of certain faiths, new guidelines on the etiquette of using communal kitchens at work suggest. Similarly, it would also be advisable to avoid keeping bacon rolls in a fridge shared with people whose religious beliefs prohibit them from eating pork.

  • The height of etiquette: Michelle Obama towers over Japanese emperor

    03/19/2015 8:24:12 AM PDT · by traumer · 155 replies
    Michelle Obama has had an awkward start to her visit to Japan as she was pictured towering over Emperor Akihito and stumbling as she tried to bow, shake his hand and curtsey at once. The First Lady, dressed in a florid combination of a blazer and skirt, dwarfed the Emperor in her silver stilettos, while he maintained his composure and smiled politely. She then squatted slightly while shaking his hand, seemingly trying to disguise the difference of height between them. Mrs Obama, who is 5ft 9in tall, also caused embarrassment earlier in the day when she grabbed Akie Abe, wife...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 11/10/2013 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    I was recently asked by the Archdiocese of Washington to lead a workshop for catechists that focused on the catechetical teachings implicit in the funeral rites of the Church. At first, I was somewhat surprised at the request. It didn’t strike me as the first sort of topic that one might speak about when speaking to catechists.But quickly, I warmed to the topic. I have long held that the way in which we conduct ourselves at funerals, in the manner of preaching and other visible attitudes, not only teaches poorly, but is often a countersign of biblical and Church teaching...

    So much for Women’s Lib. An eighth-grader took cues from a 1950s etiquette book touting white gloves and girdles in a quirky bid to be popular at school a couple years ago — and now, she’s laughing all the way to the bank. Teenager Maya Van Wagenen cleverly chronicled how she used tips from the decades-old “Betty Cornell’s Teen-age Popularity Guide’’ to gain an edge as a student new to Brownsville, Texas. She followed some of Cornell’s sage advice, which included the gloves, white pearls and girdles, as well as how to properly squeeze pimples, shave one’s legs for summer...

    Denver Catholic Register ^ | 12 September 2012 | Nissa LaPoint
    Mass etiquette: Obey rubrics, be charitable By Nissa LaPoint It’s likely a familiar scene to Mass-goers. Across the pew, one man strikes his breast to the words of the Penitential Act while a tardy couple with a baby apologetically stumbles past him. The majority prays on bended knees, but at the consecration, one woman slips out to answer a vibrating Blackberry. One sniffling parishioner clasps hands with another during the Lord’s Prayer. Others pray with folded hands. Many Catholic faithful have fallen victim to and grappled with such liturgical conundrums and church faux pas. As the one-year anniversary of the...

    A boozy Brooklyn man was hit with hate crime charges Sunday for pouring beer on a newlywed neighbor, calling her an "Arab terrorist" and pummeling her husband, police sources said. Following the seemingly unprovoked attack Saturday night in Mill Basin, Simchon Schwartz, 46, hid in a local synagogue and tried to fight off cops when they came to arrest him, sources said. The Hasid even kicked out a window of a police cruiser as he sat inside, whining that "the cuffs are too tight," a source said. "F---ing Arabs! F---ing terrorists!" Schwartz screamed when he grabbed his neighbor, Selda Turan,...

    How to Address Priests and Religious:Titles and Signs of Respect Marian Therese Horvat, Ph.DIn times past every Catholic used to know some of the simple rules that have been set aside from disuse. The general protocol was taught by sisters in grade school, but more often was learned as in osmosis from everyday practice. No one dreamed of calling Father O’Reilly by the nickname “Bill,” or, addressing Sister Margaret Mary as “Maggie.”Everyone knew you rose as a sign of respect when a priest or religious entered the room. Speaking before a gathering that included clergy or religious, a Catholic...

    Old Rules Flummox Young Hipsters; 'I'm Wearing an $80 Fedora!' Hector Ramirez sort of knows, from watching old movies, that men are supposed to take off their hats when indoors. But the 19-year-old Brown University student wears fedoras in class—with jeans—anyway. "If I'm wearing a hat and it's part of my look, I don't think I should have to take it off," he says. On a recent trip to New York, an usher at a church had to remind him to take off his fedora. "I was wearing it all day and I guess I kind of just forgot I...

    Less than an hour ago, while watching the NBC nitely news covering the French President's visit to our whitehouse, they had a camera angle directly between Obama and Sarkozy to three flags on stands in the distance. The AMERICAN FLAG was hanging down so low it was touching the floor so plainly that one could see the bottom 4 to 6 inches were deflected by the floor in plain sight!!! Did anyone else see or capture this disgusting display of disrespect "as seen on TV"??? I sure hope so and I hope a big huge stink is made about it....

    Can something as simple as good manners help to stem the coarsening of our culture? Yes! Cord Ivanyi, a Latin teacher at a Phoenix high school, was tired seeing the boys in his class subject the girls to vulgar words and behavior. The behavior was disrespectful, and disrupting to his classes. So Ivanyi decided to give the boys an example in chivalry. When a girl got up to go to the restroom, Ivanyi stood as a sign of respect. When she came back to class, Ivanyi held the door for her. [...] Christians need to resist the slide into vulgarity...
