    It turns out that multiculturalists--teachers and demonstrative students alike--cannot even expound on their area of expertise accurately. "Take hoop earrings, which date to ancient Assyria," Jonathan Zimmerman, who teaches education and history at Penn, writes in The Chronicle of Higher Education. "In Nimrud, located in present-day Iraq, theres a depiction of King Ashurnasirpal II (884-859 B.C.) wearing thick hoop earrings." "The ancient Greeks and the Romans wore them, too; so did pirates in many parts of the Western world, who believed that hoop earrings contained healing powers or would protect them from drowning." "And, yes, hoop earrings were eventually adopted...

    Why is Republican nominee Donald Trump leading in two battleground states and nearly tied in another with less than two weeks before the election? Experts, analysts, and Washington, D.C. insiders lectured the American people on how this was not supposed to happen. According to a new poll, Trump maintains a healthy lead in Ohio over Hillary Clinton, 46 to 42 percentage points and in a Bloomberg Politics poll of Florida, Trump leads Clinton 45 to 43. In Pennsylvania, Trump continues to dwindle Clinton's lead where he is now within three points of the Democratic nominee. Florida and Ohio are must...

    UPDATED: Sean Penns humanitarian romance The Last Face is being savaged on Twitter after premiering Friday at the Cannes Film Festival. Commenters on social media are describing the film, which stars Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem, as the worst of the fest.

    Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn on Friday rejected Mexico's claim that his secret meeting with Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman was crucial to the drug kingpin's recapture, saying officials were trying to put him in the crosshairs of the feared cartel. Penn also told talk show host Charlie Rose that he regrets the fallout from the Rolling Stone article based on his interview with Guzman. Their meeting in a jungle hideout was the first interview anyone scored with the fugitive drug lord, and Penn said he had hoped it would spur a broader discussion on the drug war. In Penn's first major...

    Breitbart ^ | January 12, 2016 | Ildefonso Ortiz
    Mexican drug cartels continue to fascinate the minds of Americans who tend to idolize outlaw gunmen with fast cash, fancy cars, guns and women. However, few realize that Mexican drug cartels are as ruthless and sadistic as Middle Eastern terror groups like ISIS with whom they actually have many tactics in common. For most in America, the closest they have come to a drug cartel is the small-time drug peddler in the street corner, the glamorous TV shows, or the Mexican narco-ballads. However, taking a step back and looking at their entire structure, and how those drugs got from...

    By 15, he said in an interview conducted in a jungle clearing by the actor and director Sean Penn for Rolling Stone magazine, he had begun to grow marijuana and poppies because there was no other way for his impoverished family to survive. Now, unapologetically, he said: “I supply more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world. I have a fleet of submarines, airplanes, trucks and boats.” Though his fortune, estimated at $1 billion, has come with a trail of blood, he does not consider himself a violent man. “Look, all I do is defend myself,...

Tom Corbett delivered a pragmatic acceptance speech Saturday touting his fiscal management and avoiding social issues that have landed him in hot water in the past...... But the unanimous endorse masked what one dissenter described as "a Tsunami of discontent" within state GOP ranks. Montgomery County tea party activist Bob Guzzardi, who lingered outside of the main hall, is Corbett's sole challenger for the party nomination. Guzzardi acknowledged he is a dark horse in the race and even admitted he didn't expect to be included in any...

    At 11 on a weeknight earlier this year, her work finished, a slim, pretty junior at the University of Pennsylvania did what she often does when she has a little free time. She texted her regular hookup the guy she is sleeping with but not dating. What was he up to? He texted back: Come over. So she did. They watched a little TV, had sex and went to sleep. Their relationship, she noted, is not about the meeting of two souls. We dont really like each other in person, sober, she said, adding that we literally cant sit...
