    A New Jersey first grade teacher who wrote that she was a "warden for future criminals" on Facebook says she was speaking "out of frustration to their behavior." Jennifer O'Brien defended herself Wednesday at an administration hearing that will determine whether the tenured Paterson teacher should lose her job. O'Brien told an administrative law judge she wrote the post in exasperation because six or seven unruly first-graders kept disrupting her lessons. She said one boy had recently hit her. The teacher posted her remark to 333 friends on March 28. However, it was forwarded and led critics to call her...

    And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.(Luke 22:31-32)Everywhere I turn lately I have been seeing brothers and sisters in faith undergoing intense trials in many areas of their lives. Of course we know that the christian life consists of manifold trials, for as the book of Acts tells us, “through many tribulations shall we enter into the Kingdom of heaven” .But recently it seems to me that for...

    MANDEVILLE, La. - St. Tammany Parish deputies have arrested three 15-year-olds on charges of conspiracy to commit terrorism after they say they thwarted a plan for a possible attack on Lakeshore High school Monday. Deputies said the alleged attack was to include shootings that would have coincided with the start of classes on Monday. Deputies became aware of the plan on July 17th, when school officials notified the Sheriff’s Office of the existence of a group, called “Day Zero,” members of which were all students at the school. Sheriff Strain credited school officials for helping to avert a potentially deadly...

    While Colorado’s soft on marijuana laws, were welcomed by adults-first libertarians, so-called unexpected costs are being felt. “The dark side of the issue, however, is the unintended consequences on Colorado’s young people,” reports Our Colorado News. “Since the state legalized marijuana for medical use, treatment centers are treating more teens for marijuana addiction, according to a report from Thomas Crowley, director of the Division of Substance Dependence at the University of Colorado.” The consequences are alarming: “Denver Health Medical Center reports that treatment referrals have tripled, with 83 percent of the teens that smoke marijuana daily saying they obtained it...

    It used to be you could get a job as a high school drop out. Or you could hold a job while staying in school. And you could definitely find work over the summer. Not anymore. 34.6 percent of California teens who are looking for work can't find it, according to the Employment Policy Institute. Teen unemployment is equally high in Georgia; followed by Nevada at 34.3 percent; Washington at 33.2 percent; North Carolina at 32.1 percent; Idaho at 31.8 percent; and West Virginia at 30.2%. The District of Columbia is even higher at 49% teen unemployment.
  • Minority Feelings and Violent Facts

    American Thinker ^ | John T. Bennett
    How did we reach the point where the only group whose feelings need to be consulted are minorities? Liberalism. Part of liberalism is the notion that minorities need special help, attention, and heightened sensitivity. Along with that, liberalism promotes white guilt and the peculiar desire to "help people" at any cost. The result is that the media gives credence and coverage to mere feelings when real people are being attacked. Of course, the worse the violence gets, the more sensitive we'll have to be. The flash mobs and mob attacks will require the utmost sensitivity from us, as they are...

    The suicide of a 17-year-old Hutchinson High School junior in April blindsided many people - from Chris Sullivan's grieving parents and siblings to his church family, wrestling teammates and coaches. The news caused a ripple effect, even jolting those who didn't personally know Chris. Brett Goetz was one of those people. "I didn't know Chris, but it affected my entire family," Goetz said. His younger brother Shane was one of Sullivan's best friends. A recent graduate of Kansas State University, with goals set to one day become a physician's assistant, Goetz decided to do something to help prevent such a...

    In an example of the increasingly voyeuristic behavior people are exhibiting on social media web sites, a pair of 15-year-old boys were arrested because of a video one of them allegedly posted on Facebook showing his friend beating another teenager unconscious. The 15-year old victim of the beating did not tell his parents or go to the hospital, police say. Rather, police were alerted to the beating and ultimately made the arrests acting off a tip from a witness who saw the video on Facebook. Police arrested David Wayne Howard Jr. and Anthony Vincent Faiola, both 15. They appeared before...

    Call it the pubescent pot problem. New research shows that adults who smoked marijuana before age 15 have significant problems with attention span, impulse control, and "executive function" - the ability to plan and carry out tasks. How about people who took up toking later in life? The same research showed they were much less likely to have such difficulties. For the research, scientists at the Federal University of Sao Paulo in Brazil used a stardard "card sorting" task to evaluate the cognitive ability of 104 long-term cannabis users, including 49 who had started using before age 15. On average,...

    By failing to take action against global warming, the federal government has violated its legal obligation to protect the atmosphere as a resource that belongs to everyone, according to a lawsuit filed in federal court last week. Five of the plaintiffs are teenagers, who have a "profound interest in ensuring our climate remains stable enough to ensure their right to a livable future," according to the suit filed May 4, which names a number of federal officials — from Lisa Jackson, head of the Environmental Protection Agency, to Robert Gates of the Defense Department — as defendants. The suit cites...

    Parents who let their kids drink when supervised – because they think it's safer than an outright ban on underage drinking – may want to rethink their approach due to a new study in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs. Co-authored by University of Washington professor Richard Catalano, the study (PDF) found that teens who drank with adult supervision had more drinking-related problems than teens raised with a zero-tolerance attitude. "Kids need parents to be parents and not drinking buddies," Barbara McMorris, the study's lead researcher, said in a statement. McMorris is a senior research associate at the...
