Melania Trump didn't graduate from college as bio claims, reports say
Post Date: 2016-07-19 16:24:08 by Willie Green
11 Comments
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The controversy over Melania Trump's speech at the Republican National Convention has sparked questions about her background. Mrs. Trump's education, in particular, is at issue. Her bio on her official website states she graduated with a degree in design and architecture from "University in Slovenia." It's a claim that's been repeated by the Trump campaign and the RNC itself, in the convention's official program. However, the Slovenian writers of her biography wrote that Trump actually dropped out from the University of Ljubljana after her freshman year. Politico's Julia Ioffe wrote the same thing in a profile of the ...

Elite K-8 school teaches white students they’re born racist

Bank Street School for Children at 610 W. 112th St. in Manhattan.An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers. Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it. A slide from the Bank School shows the different goals for white children (right) and “kids of color” (left). They complain the K-8 school of 430 kids is ...

Oklahoma schools have no money for textbooks

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO) - The Oklahoma State Department of Education recommended that schools not buy any textbooks because of lack of state funding. The department said lawmakers failed to appropriate funding for textbooks during the fiscal year beginning July 1st. State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister spoke out saying students will be forced to use "outdated and tattered school books held together by duct tape." The 13-member state textbook committee is expected to consider the recommendation of delaying textbook selection by a year at a special meeting later this month. Last fiscal year, $33 million was allocated for textbooks. Poster Comment:

Speaking at Hillsdale College’s 164th Commencement on May 14, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas evoked the important lessons about life that he learned working on a farm as a boy in Georgia where “work seemed to spring eternally.” A key lesson that he learned was: One of the constantly conveyed messages was our obligation to take care of the land and to use it to produce food for ourselves and for others.If there was to be independence, self-sufficiency, or freedom then we had to first understand, accept, and then discharge our responsibilities…. The only guarantee was that if you did not discharge your responsibilities there could be no independence, no ...

Misperceiving Bullshit as Profound Is Associated with Favorable Views of Cruz, Rubio, Trump and Conservatism

AbstractThe present research investigates the associations between holding favorable views of potential Democratic or Republican candidates for the US presidency 2016 and seeing profoundness in bullshit statements. In this contribution, bullshit is used as a technical term which is defined as communicative expression that lacks content, logic, or truth from the perspective of natural science. We used the Bullshit Receptivity scale (BSR) to measure seeing profoundness in bullshit statements. The BSR scale contains statements that have a correct syntactic structure and seem to be sound and meaningful on first reading but are actually vacuous. Participants (N = 196; obtained via Amazon ...

Portland Community College’s “Whiteness History Month” is highlighting the types of controversial conversations about race that are shaping America’s next generation of leaders. The school is hosting more than 100 planned events centered on the system of white supremacist oppression that minorities, particularly black people, are forced to endure and the conscious and unconscious “white privilege” all whites enjoy. In a video of one event posted to YouTube, PCC history and humanities professor James Harrison delivered a lecture titled “Imagine A World Without Whiteness” in which he invokes the words of John Lennon to explain why he equates peace ...

Giovanni MicheliA white student at a predominantly Hispanic and black Long Island high school says he was targeted for punishment over his race — punched, hit with a chair and repeatedly called “cracker” and “white boy” — while administrators did nothing to protect him. Lawyers for Giovanni Micheli, now 23, aim to convince a federal jury that their client was singled out as a “minority” in Brentwood High School and then told by school officials, most of them white, to either “project more self-confidence” in order to stem the beating and berating — or leave. Micheli sued the Brentwood School District in 2010, and the trial opened ...

Michigan Board of Education Releases Controversial New LGBTQ Guidelines

Michigan’s Board of Education has drafted a set of guidelines that asks schools to allow students to make their own decisions regarding which bathrooms they use, the gender by which they want to be identified, and the names by which they’d like to be called. The guidelines, which seem to explicitly remove parents and doctors from the decision-making process, have been signed by State Superintendent Brian Whiston. The Daily Caller reports that the board “quietly issued” the statement and corresponding guidance on February 23 without a press release. The public has only until April 11 to comment on the guidance before the board finalizes it on May 10. The statement ...

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Colleges and universities worldwide are incorporating into their curriculums the evolving genre of literature that focuses on the changes coming to Earth as the result of climate change – “cli-fi.”Some of the books and movies now being considered part of the genre are old classics, while others were written more recently in direct response to today’s changing climate.“It’s a very, very energized time for this where people in literature have just as much to say as people who are in hard science fields, or technology and design fields, or various social-science approaches to these things,” said Jennifer Wicke, an English professor ...

Ohio professor keeps job despite spewing anti-Semitic hate on social media

A professor at a prestigious Ohio school still has her job despite a blitz of Facebook posts blaming Israel and Jews for everything from 9/11 to the creation of ISIS. Joy Karega, an assistant professor of "rhetoric and composition" at Oberlin College, claims the Jewish state secretly planned the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris and that its national intelligence agency, the Mossad, formed the terror group. Critics acknowledge that she is free to cling to kooky theories, but question why a school that charges students $50,000 per year would subject them to the ravings of a crackpot.

Charges could prevent one teen from joining the Marines, and the other teen from attending college. Two Escondido, California, high school students—ages 16 and 18—could see their whole lives derailed because they committed the crime of keeping fishing supplies in cars they parked on school property. The elder teen, Brandon Cappelletti, had three knives in his car: the remnants of a family fishing trip. The knives were used to cut lines and filet fish. The younger teen, Sam Serrato, had a pocketknife in his glove compartment. His father had left it there. Both teens are facing expulsion. Cappelletti, a legal adult, could serve jail time if convicted of weapons charges, according to ...

Just days after an honor roll student in Dallas, Texas was suspended for potentially saving a classmate’s life by sharing her asthma inhaler, another Texas student is in hot water for helping out a fellow student in need. Anthony Ruelas, 15 was sitting in class Tuesday morning when an eighth-grade classmate began wheezing and choking. For three minutes this poor girl was in clear distress while no one did a thing. Unable to continue watching the girl suffer, Ruelas picked her up and rushed her to the nurse’s office. In doing so, Ruelas broke the school rules. “He may not follow instructions all the time, but he does have a great heart,” Ruelas’ mother, Mandy ...

Supreme Court may free teachers from forced union dues

Monday the Supreme Court hears oral arguments in a case that could bring freedom from forced union fees to teachers and other public employees across the country. In Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, Rebecca Friedrichs is asking for the right to choose whether to pay a labor union. Because California isn’t a right-to-work state, she has to pay nearly $1,000 per year in union fees in order to teach. Those mandatory fees, the legal reasoning goes, are permissible because they cover costs CTA, CTA’s local chapter, and the National Education Association incur representing nonmembers. Forced union fees cannot be spent on politics. ...

Trucker Destroys Historic Bridge Because She Didn't Know How Many Pounds Six Tons Was

The craziest part isn’t that 23-year-old Mary Lambright drove her 30-ton truck onto this tiny bridge in Paoli, Indiana built in 1880. It’s that she knew that the bridge’s weight limit was six tons. She just didn’t know how many pounds that was. Seriously, that’s what she told the police after the crash on Christmas, as they note in their report: Ms. Lambright was aware of the iron bridge stating she had driven on it several times in her personal vehicle and was also aware of the posted signage “no semis, weight limit of 6 tons”. When asked by Paoli Police why she continued through the bridge knowing the weight limit was only 6 tons she admitted to not ...

A federal appeals court says the University of Hawaii didn't violate the First Amendment when it denied a teaching certificate for a Caltech-educated aspiring high school teacher who expressed views condoning adults having sex with minors. In a ruling Tuesday, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Mark Oyama's comments were relevant in determining whether he should be allowed to work as a public school teacher. According to the ruling, Oyama made other comments his professors found concerning, such as disabled students being "fakers." Oyama's attorney, Eric Seitz, says the ruling is troubling because it allows the university to censor someone's opinions that ...

Three Florin High School students were taken to juvenile hall after a wild fight in which the school’s principal was body-slammed. The chaotic scene played out during lunchtime Monday on the south-area campus. A fight broke out, drawing a school resource police officer, a school official and Principal Don Ross. Students gathered around, at least one recording the melee on a cellphone, as officials tried to break up the fight. After trying to restrain a tall student, Ross was thrown to the floor. Undeterred, Ross got back up and tried to prevent the student from fighting again. The fight, including the efforts of Ross, who officials said was not badly hurt during the altercation, ...

We weren't better educated in the 1830sJust how much have America's schools gone down the tubes? According to Dr. Ben Carson, a lot -- and he can prove it!   The good doctor is quick to refer you to his book, America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great where, he says, he has "an example of questions in a sixth grade exit exam from the 1830s. I doubt most college graduates could even come close to passing it today." In fact, this was one of the zingers Carson shot at President Obama during his now-famous 2013 National Prayer Breakfast speech that made him an overnight sensation on Fox News.   Intrigued, I looked up Carson's book and found ...

College Football Is Stealing Your Education

We are in a college debt crisis. Almost 70 percent of college students graduate with approximately $30,000 in college debt. In 1992, it was one-third of that average. Why has the cost and burden of debt for higher education risen so dramatically in just over 20 years? One of the answers is college athletics, namely football. The new short above by Brave New Films entitled The Big Game: College Football Stealing Your Education explains just how that happens.Tuition to state universities across the nation has risen, on average, about 30 percent since 2000 alone. But an even more disturbing trend emerges when the data is looked at closely. Most states with strong college football traditions ...

A new study analyzing the grammar of comments posted on presidential candidate Facebook pages finds that Republicans tend to butcher the English language at twice the rate of Democrats. The study by the grammar-checking app Grammarly found that GOP supporters made an average of 8.7 mistakes per 100 words compared to 4.2 mistakes for Democratic supporters. The Dems also had the bigger vocabulary, with 300 unique words used on average compared to 245 for Republicans. Broken down by candidate, the trend becomes even more pronounced. The five Democratic candidates — Lincoln Chafee, Jim Webb, Bernie Sanders, Martin O'Malley and Hillary Clinton — all scored higher (in that order) ...
