    Some residents of small-town Sardis, Miss. say they are very troubled at officials’ decision to knowingly crown a registered sex offender as “Grand Marshal” of their annual Christmas parade, according to a report from KAIT. Carolyn Whaley, who owns The Eclectic Emporium on Main Street where the Christmas parade passed by on Tuesday, says “everyone in Sardis knows that Michael Saripkin, the Grand Marshal, is a sex offender,” KAIT reports. “Everybody knows that; it’s a small town,” Whaley said. “It doesn’t bother me. He’s a very nice, friendly man. He has donated more money, helped the fire department, helped the...

    Thousands of brides are being burned alive in India despite the practice being illegal, a Christian ministry has warned. India Partners, a Christian organization that works alonside indigenous Christian grassroots agencies in India, told Mission Network News on Thursday that there are still as many as 8,000 bride burning cases a year in the Hindu-majority country. A representative with India Partners, identified only as John, said the low view of women is spread through parts of India's society. “This is true both of men and women. It’s not just of men itself. Most women see the other woman as in...

    Heather Mac Donald has written and spoken extensively about how identity politics is hampering America’s ability to maintain its dominance in STEM fields. Our main competitors, most notably China, are focused on making sure the best scientists, mathematicians, and engineers are doing the work. They care nothing about gender. And they spend virtually every dollar related to STEM on hard research and analysis. The U.S., by contrast, is preoccupied with the gender and (to a lesser extent) the race and ethnicity of who is in the lab. And we pour money into promoting identity politics in STEM. Indeed, Elizabeth Harrington...

    Ever since Justice Powell’s lone opinion in Bakke allowed the camel’s nose of “diversity” under the anti-discrimination tent, controversy has raged over preferential treatment awarded to college applicants of certain races. Just as hurricanes often change direction after landfall, the diversity movement has recently taken off in some surprising new directions that deserve public attention. Diversity Statements First came the “diversity statements,” introduced by a smattering of institutions for promotion or tenure and sometimes for all new hires. Both the prevalence and the required content of these diversity statements has expanded dramatically. UCLA’s Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, for...

    Nobel Prize winning Economist Paul Krugman (MIT, Princeton) opines on the future demographics of America: "The real craziness in America comes from, if you like, rural white Americans who feel their power is going away, that they are losing their ownership of their country, and they're right; we're becoming more diverse, more multicultural. Rural whites are not the future. In the end the power they still have will go away. But it's still very difficult until that happens. The future is Mayor Bill DeBlasio of New York, but there is still Ted Cruz out there, and he still has tremendous...

    BREAUX BRIDGE, La. — Bryson Sassau’s application would inspire any college admissions officer. A founder of T.M. Landry College Preparatory School described him as a “bright, energetic, compassionate and genuinely well-rounded” student whose alcoholic father had beaten him and his mother and had denied them money for food and shelter. His transcript “speaks for itself,” the founder, Tracey Landry, wrote, but Mr. Sassau should also be lauded for founding a community service program, the Dry House, to help the children of abusive and alcoholic parents. He took four years of honors English, the application said, was a baseball M.V.P. and...

    Returning from the NATO Trident Juncture strategic exercise, a Norwegian frigate collided with a tanker. Many are speculating that gender politics sunk the vessel. The collision with the KNM Helge Ingstad left a big enough hole in the starboard side of the frigate for the warship to take on water. The crew has been forced to abandon the vessel, The Barents Observer reported. On Tuesday morning, most of the navy ship was already under water. The warship, one of Norway’s five top modern frigates.. a mystery why the well-equipped warship couldn’t avoid colliding with the 250 meters long oil tanker...

    **SNIP** “While I was reading this letter that was kind of released today, my main concern was that there is no vision, there is no common value, there is no goal that is really articulated in this letter aside from we need to change,” she said. “I do think that we got sent to Congress [with] a mandate to change how government works, to change what government even looks like. But if we are not on the same page about changing the systems and the values and how we’re going to adapt as a party for the future, then what...

    WELL WE are at least 30 minutes into Monday morning so it's time for the first "Facebook did WHAT?" story of the week. According to a report in The Intercept, Facebook has been offering potential advertisers the chance to target their wares at groups who believe in a "White Genocide". Yes. Really. Just days after a mass-shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, the topic "white genocide consipracy theory" was used by the research team as a "detailed targeting" criterion to aim adverts at the 168,000 users who have interacted with the subject in some way.(continued at link)

    Amazon has been an aggressive advocate for diversity. That includes providing strong support for immigrants, minorities, the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, the military, women engineers and more. When the company was searching for a second headquarters, it made diversity a key issue. To achieve long-term success, Amazon said last year, the winning city must have a diverse population and a community that supports it. Does that also mean diversity in politics, geography and even home prices? Apparently not, because Amazon chose two locales — New York City and Washington — that have a lot in common with its hometown...

    Saudi Arabia has executed an Indonesian maid who killed her employer during a rape attack, sparking outrage in Jakarta. Ms Tursilawati, who was working in the city of Ta'if, was found guilty of killing her employer in June 2011.  Indonesian President President Joko Widodo called Saudi Arabia's foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir, demanding to know why Jakarta had not been informed about Monday's execution of mother-of one Tuti Tursilawati. It was the fourth time in three years that Saudi Arabia had failed to notify Jakarta before executing an Indonesian migrant worker.     'We have called Saudi Arabia's foreign minister and conveyed our protest,' Mr...

    If you live in Ohio and you're currently struggling with a bed bug issue, you're not alone. Exterminators say the state is experiencing an “epidemic” of the parasite, especially in northeastern cities. Dale Pluck, an exterminator and owner of Dale’s Pest Control, told Cleveland 19 News he's noticed a rise in cases involving the blood-suckers in Lorain, Sandusky and West Cleveland. “They’re everywhere,” he said. “Stores have them. Doctors offices have them. You can almost pick them up anywhere.” Wayne Minor, who works for Dale’s Pest Control as an exterminator, told the news station bed bugs are also a problem...

    Georgia’s registered voters became more racially diverse this year, continuing a long-term demographic trend among the electorate. White voters are still the majority in Georgia, but their collective influence is slowly waning each election year, according to voter registration data from the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office. Meanwhile, racial minorities are gradually gaining ground. The latest voting numbers released this week by the state present an updated look at how it has changed in recent years, in terms of race, gender and age. The figures were compiled after the Oct. 9 voter registration deadline and analyzed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution....

    ver the last few decades, the number of college administrators has grown far more than the numbers of students and faculty. Amid this administrative bloat, the greatest growth has been in “diversity” officials. Even community colleges have begun hiring Chief Diversity Officers (CDO). A persistent question, however, is whether having a CDO and other diversity administrators accomplishes anything of educational value. American colleges and universities are as inclusive and “welcoming” to students and faculty of all races and backgrounds as any institutions on the planet, so exactly how does a CDO make things any better? More than ten years ago,...
