    A wounded veteran is sounding off on a study that found some students are exhibiting symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder following the 2016 election. The study, which was released Monday by the Journal of American College Health, evaluated 769 students at Arizona State University studying psychology in January and February 2017. About 25 percent of respondents reported symptoms of PTSD because Donald Trump won the election. “What we were interested in seeing was, did the election for some people constitute a traumatic experience? And we found that it did for 25 percent of young adults,” said lead author Melissa...

    The Student Gun Violence Summit put forward a Bill of Rights calling for a ban on the sale of “weapons that fire velocity rounds.” The Bill of Rights did not acknowledge that all bullets travel at a certain velocity. Rather, their statement was part of a larger push to ban the sale of commonly owned semiautomatic rifles in America. The Student Gun Violence Summit was sponsored by Gabby Giffords’ gun control group, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety, among others.

    A planned Student Gun Violence Summit held in Washington, D.C. over the weekend has generated a proposal geared towards extensive gun control ideas. The summit was designed to merge existing plans to reduce gun violence and merge them into a single “Students’ Bill of Rights,” after a weekend conference. The group, a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt social welfare organization, was formed by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher Melissa Falkowski, along with Jami Amo, a survivor of the Columbine shooting; and Abbey Clements, a teacher from Sandy Hook Elementary School. The summit was sponsored with the assistance of several national gun control...

    Old Glory flies triumphantly above Hayden Meadows Elementary. But, every day at the end of school, three keepers of the flag make sure she’s in safe hands. Fifth graders Naylan Tuttle, Jack LeBreck, and Casey Dolan go through the steps necessary to make sure the U.S. flag is properly folded and stored without it ever touching the ground. It’s a sign of respect, something these boys take seriously. “This is our nation's flag, this is our school's flag, it's how we represent our country,” Jack LeBreck said. Their selfless act has now gone viral; the boys were folding the flag...

    The LaGrange Daily News ^ | August 29, 2018 | Alicia B. Hill
    A group of college students is working together with lawmakers and communities to try to make the route to locations throughout the southeast a little shorter by using Interstate 14 to connect Killeen, Texas, with Columbus, Georgia. The idea started when Frank Lumpkin was in high school, taking part in Youth Leadership Columbus. While taking part in the class, he said he realized that the city needed more infrastructure to succeed, and he said he has been working on the project ever since. “From the moment I saw this robust transportation network that linked the southern military instillations, would address...

    Lawmakers in California passed a bill Friday mandating that school start times for middle- and high-school students begin at 8:30 a.m., defying the wishes of school boards in the state as well as a local teachers' union. The Sacramento Bee reported late Friday that lawmakers had passed a bill mandating that the start of classes be delayed until 8:30 a.m., with the exception of before school or "zero period" classes, which may still begin before that time. The bill came despite objections from both the California Teachers Association and the California School Boards Association, according to the news outlet. It...

  • Business students more likely to have a brain parasite spread by cats

    New Scientist ^ | Jul 25, 2018 | By New Scientist staff and Press Association
    An analysis of students in the US has found that those who have a certain type of brain parasite are more likely to be majoring in business studies. Toxoplasma gondii is a protozoan parasite carried by cats. It can infect people through contact with cat faeces, poorly cooked meat, or contaminated water, and as many as one-third of the world’s population may be infected. The parasite doesn’t make us feel sick, but it forms cysts in the brain where it can remain for the rest of a person’s life. Some studies have linked infection with the parasite to slower reaction...

    A few months back, I experienced what a friend of mine and many libertarians and conservative parents say they have experienced: My teenagers started spouting leftist platitudes. Being combative and sarcastic by nature (since all Cubans are born with a sharp tongue), we all ended up angry and frustrated. Upon subsequent calm reflection, I realized I had accomplished nothing. And so I tried another approach. To my complete surprise, there was a 180-degree turnaround in the teens’ views. I would now like to share the tactics I used and give the following advice to those who are at wit’s end.

    It seems like every week, there’s a new story of a female high school or even middle school teacher who has been arrested for engaging in relations with one of her students.The women are often young, attractive, and often (seemingly) happily married. It has been happening so frequently that it appears to be a reasonably solid trend, and yet there’s little widespread call to end it.Selwyn Duke of the New American, in his article, Female Teachers Having Affairs With Young Boys — Now a Weekly Occurrence, says that while there are many high-profile cases the media has covered recently, the...
  • Curtain Falls For Good on NBC's Extremely Liberal High School Drama 'Rise'

    “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” This famous quote attributed to Dr. Seuss applies to many things in life, but NBC’s high school drama Rise is not one of them. If anything, we should cry because it happened, and smile now that it is finally over. Unlike the show’s title Rise, every episode in this debut season continued to sink to new lows, so we can also smile over the news that the curtain has been lowered for good on the series. The show takes place at Stanton High School, where theater teacher Mr. Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor),...

    Expert panelists said at an event Tuesday that environmental degradation disproportionately affects communities of color, and that promoting racial diversity among environmental science researchers could help address the issue. The Environmentalists of Color Collective at UCLA hosted a forum on climate justice, featuring a panel of environmental justice advocates from Los Angeles. ECC aimed to raise awareness and start a dialogue about environmental racism, said Liliana Epps, a second-year gender studies student and member of ECC who helped host the event. Epps said environmental racism and injustice refer to disproportionate allocations of environmental resources. For example, pollutants tend to affect...

The college’s YDSA chapter announced its desire to ban the group from campus in a flyer presumably found on campus and posted to Twitter Friday, reported Campus Reform. “ROTC off our campus,” said the socialist students. “The rich will never die for you…don’t die for the rich.”

    The threat of security problems and “provocations” in the wake of the Skripals' poisoning means they should flee now and move to the “wild east” of Russia. A campaign aimed at bringing home young people studying in the UK and other Western countries has been launched by an official group representing former Soviet states. They are told that there are excellent opportunities in the far east of Siberia instead of London - but the plan has been mocked on social media. In recent years some of Russia’s brightest students, as well as high-flying financial and technological graduates, have gravitated to...

    Watch: Students at Paris occupation caused thousands of euros worth of damage, says university presidentProtesters caused hundreds of thousands of euros in damage during an occupation of the Pierre Mendès-France Center at Paris' Pantheon-Sorbonne University, according to its President Georges Haddad. "I have trouble describing it (the site)," Haddad told CNews on April 17. "I am dismayed by the state of the centre, a real shambles. Violence, drugs, sex itself. I've been told that and I think it's true, things are happening that are shameful." Students and activists started the occupation on March 26 and were cleared out in the...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – In the past few months, multiple teens claim they were jumped and stripped of their belongings. And today, while we were interviewing one of the victims, it happened again. “I thought I was gonna die at first ’cause they were just, like, stomping on me and kicking me for like a minute,” said a Sheldon High student. He was jumped by 12 teens as he walked home from school. “It just happened all right here,” he said. A freshman at Sheldon High who didn’t want to be identified said it happened last month as he left a...

    The City of Baltimore, Maryland has been dealing with their fair share of budget problems lately, the same as many other municipalities. In their recently completed 2018 budget negotiations, they wound up having to make cuts so deep they eliminated funding for things like new street lights and trash cans. And all of that was happening at the same time as they struggled to fund law enforcement efforts aimed at tamping down their historic murder rate.

    Baltimore’s new Mayor Catherine Pugh is sending public school students to the “March for Our Lives” event in Washington, DC. The event has been organized for the students of Parkland who have been repeatedly exploited by the left to push gun control. Pugh is charging the taxpayers of Baltimore for the trip. Philip Wegmann reports at the Washington Examiner: Baltimore mayor promises taxpayer money to high school students playing hooky and protesting gun violence To succeed in life, stay in school … unless you’re cutting class for the sake of progressive politics. That’s the message Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh delivered...
