    11 APS educators notified: You're going to be firedBy Nancy Badertscher The Atlanta Journal-Constitution 6:55 p.m. Friday, March 2, 2012 Atlanta School Superintendent Erroll Davis took the first steps late Friday to fire 11 educators suspected of some of the most egregious of the school system's widespread test-cheating. **SNIP** A state investigation, completed last summer, uncovered evidence that 180 APS educators were involved in systemic cheating focused on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test, a standardized test that's been a pivotal measure of a school's achievement. The investigation concluded some APS staffers, for perhaps as long as a decade, worked in secret...

    Judge Andrew Napolitano, host of Fox's Freedom Watch was unceremoniously dumped from the network this week. Napolitano says in a Facebook posting that it was nothing out of the ordinary and to please not email Fox demanding his reinstatement. According to the Judge, these things happen all the time and are ratings inspired. Watch the two videos linked here and let us know if you think his termination was purely economic. The fact is, Judge Napolitano was calling out the powers that be. He casting light on the fact that the political parties only have their well-being at heart, not...

    NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - Republican front-runner Mitt Romney stumbled down the homestretch of the New Hampshire primary on Monday, declaring, "I like being able to fire people who provide services to me" as his rivals intensified already fierce criticism. "Gov. Romney enjoys firing people. I enjoy creating jobs," said former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who has staked his candidacy on a strong showing in Tuesday's primary and has shown signs of gaining ground in recent polls. Adding insult to any injury, Texas Gov. Rick Perry posted a ringtone to his campaign website that consisted of Romney saying, "I like being...

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — A Mexican anti-poverty official has been fired after posting a comment on social media sites suggesting that poor people smell bad. Mexico's anti-poverty agency says Carlos Talavera has been fired as director of outreach brigades in the western city of Uruapan after a Facebook posting of his was re-tweeted on social media sites. The original comment appears to describe an event attended by poor people and reads roughly "truth is this smells impressively bad, poor things."

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Two nurses in a Utah hospital's intensive care unit were fired this week for taping a patient's mouth shut and laughing about it, hospital officials said Friday. Penny Artalejo was admitted to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo on Dec. 17 with nausea and anxiety from taking medication for chronic neck pain, her daughters told KSL ( http://bit.ly/tbVNuS ). Artalejo's daughter, Brittany Bilson, told the television station that her mother's teeth were chattering and she was moaning and shaking. Bilson said the nurses told her mother to shut up, taped her mouth closed and...

    SASEBO NAVAL BASE, Japan — The commanding officer of a Navy squadron attached to the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson became the 22nd Navy skipper fired this year after Navy officials lost confidence in his ability to command, the service announced. Cmdr. Jonathan Jackson, commanding officer of Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 134, was fired Thursday by Rear Adm. Thomas Shannon, commander of Carrier Strike Group 1, after an investigation revealed Jackson had violated the Navy’s sexual harassment policy by “creating and condoning an intimidating, hostile and offensive work environment,” according to a Navy news release.

    It’s officially a reality television Republican primary now. Donald Trump is pairing up with Newsmax, the conservative magazine and news Web site, to moderate a presidential debate in Des Moines on Dec. 27. “Our readers and the grass roots really love Trump,” said Christopher Ruddy, chief executive of Newsmax Media. “They may not agree with him on everything, but they don’t see him as owned by the Washington establishment, the media establishment.” Mr. Trump’s role in the debate, which will be broadcast on the cable network Ion Television, is sure to be one of the more memorable moments in a...

    Franco Harris has been an outspoken supporter of Joe Paterno in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse allegations. So much so that Harris, a Pro Football Hall of Fame running back who played for Paterno at Penn State, was fired by The Meadows Racetrack and Casino as a spokesman, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. The racetrack is located in Washington, Pa., just outside Pittsburgh. Harris publicly expressed his displeasure over Paterno's firing last week. “I feel that the (Board of Trustees) made a bad decision in letting Joe Paterno go,” Harris said, according to the paper. “I’m very disappointed...

  • Penn State trustees fire football coach Joe Paterno and PSU president Spanier

    Penn State trustees fired football coach Joe Paterno and university president Graham Spanier (SPAN-yer) amid the growing furor over how the school handled sex abuse allegations against an assistant coach. The massive shakeup Wednesday night came hours after Paterno announced that he planned to retire at the end of his 46th season. But the outcry following the arrest of former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky on molestation charges proved too much for the board to ignore. One key question has been why Paterno and other top school officials didn't go to police in 2002 after being told a graduate assistant saw...

    For every moment Joe Paterno keeps his job as Penn State's head coach, the institution as a whole and the athletic department in particular loses a significant amount of credibility. Paterno must be fired immediately for not appropriately reporting his knowledge of the despicable, horrific, mortifying, inhumane sexual crimes Jerry Sandusky is accused of committing against young boys -- some of which happened at Penn State's athletic facilities, according to a Pennsylvania attorney general report. The problem, though, is some of the people in charge of making such a decision to fire Paterno have been equally culpable of failing to...

    Joe must go. Joe Paterno must resign or be fired before Penn State's next game. Today would be good. Remember the outrage over trinkets for tattoos, the scandal that rocked Ohio State earlier this season? That coach is gone. Why is Joe Paterno still strapping on a whistle? And where was JoPa's whistle when defenseless young boys really needed it? Paterno, his athletic director and the school's vice president all knew something horrible occurred involving former team assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, and they all let it slide. For a decade. Why? The way it smells from here: The alleged predator...

    After violating National Public Radio’s ethics code by acting as a spokeswoman for Occupy DC protesters, Lisa Simeone was fired Wednesday evening from one of the two public radio programs she hosts, the Associated Press reports. Simeone was fired from “SoundPrint,” an internationally syndicated program appearing on NPR affiliate WAMU in Washington, D.C. The official who fired Simeone reportedly did so over the phone and read NPR’s ethics code to her during the call. WAMU describes “SoundPrint” as “the aural equivalent of photojournalism” and says the Simeone-hosted program explores “news, history, and culture.” The firing comes after The Daily Caller...

    Patricia McAllister, who leapt to fame for her proud and succinctly expressed (18 second video here) Jew hatred at OWS Los Angeles, has been fired by the Los Angeles Unified School District. (snip) We can expect more from the Jew haters, to the effect that this incident proves the Jews pull the strings. But will the ACLU or other purported free speech advocates make an issue of Ms. McAllister? My guess is not.
