  • More than 30 ‘White Student Union’ pages created on Facebook in last week

    11/23/2015 6:53:37 PM PST · by 2ndDivisionVet · 15 replies
    The College Fix ^ | November 23, 2015 | Jason Weaver, University of Michigan
    More than 30 “White Student Union” pages have recently sprung up over the last several days on Facebook, pages that affiliate themselves with various universities around the nation. The creation of an “Illini White Student Union” Facebook page that surfaced Nov. 18 in response to a “Black Student Solidarity Rally” at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign gained national attention, but apparently it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Over the last week, at least 33 other “White Student Union” pages have appeared on Facebook, according to research conducted Sunday by The College Fix. Notably, “White Student Union” Facebook pages...

    Update: Campus spokeswoman Robin Kaler said the University will continue to work with Facebook to have the Illini White Student Union page removed from the site. “It is disturbing and cowardly that someone would create an anonymous and senseless social media page specifically designed to intimidate others, including and especially our students. When we became aware of the page, we immediately contacted Facebook and requested that it be removed," Kaler said in an email. "Facebook has been responsive to our requests, but the page continues to be reposted. We are continuing to work with Facebook to address this matter. We...

    Hello FReeper friends. For the first time in several years, I've got a few bucks to spare. I'd like to finally upgrade from my old CRT television to a flat-screen TV. I'm also investigating the various options for streaming video to the TV via WiFi. I'm looking at devices like Roku and Amazon's FireTV -- especially because Amazon is having a Black Friday deal on the FireTV stick. However, the TVs that I'm looking at all are WiFi enabled. So here's my question: unless I really, really want features specific to FireTV, do I really need it (or Roku) if...

    The Hillsdale Collegian ^ | November 11, 2015 | Macaela Bennett
    When Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, made a snide comment about jour­nalists during Tuesday’s fourth Republican Pres­i­dential debate, hundreds of jour­nalists clustered in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, media filing center shared a moment. While responding to crit­icisms of Donald Trump’s firm stance against illegal immi­gration, Cruz said many people disregard immi­gration as an economic issue. He blamed this misun­der­standing partially on the main­stream media’s coverage of it. To emphasize his point, Cruz argued that the media would cover the issue differently if undoc­u­mented immi­grants entering the United States were applying for jour­nalism jobs. “I will say, the politics of it would be...

    Uh-oh. By now, everyone knows that Hillary was running a largely unsecured email server out of her New York home. We also know that hundreds of the emails that passed through that system contained classified information. Now, thanks to the Washington Free Beacon, we know that upon assuming her role as Secretary of State, Hillary signed a Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement (SCI). The document outlined her responsibilities in dealing with classified information, and made her aware of the criminal penalties associated with failing to meet them.

    Shortage of organs for transplantation has been one of the most challenging endeavor that patients, families and health care providers face today. But now, a possible novel answer to organ shortage has arrived: 3D printing of substitute organs. Numerous measures have been implemented to widen the pool of organ donors all across the U.S. Interventions to address the problem of organ shortage include national programs to heighten deceased donor donation, paired donor exchanges and split organ donation, among many others. Actions to hasten public awareness, enhance efficiency of donation mechanism and standardize donation policies have resulted in remarkable rates of...

Martha Roby in her testimony to the House Select Committee on Benghazi October 22, 2015. Amid her expert dancing around substantive answers, what emerged was culpability in the lack of action to either secure or extract the embassy team from Benghazi. Revealed facts include the 600 requests for additional security in less than a year, beginning with the previous ambassador, Gene Cretz, who was afterward posted to Ghana. The...

She denied that left-wing slime merchant and Clinton groupie Sidney Blumenthal was her advisor. She even denied having a computer on...

I was influenced by early and repeated readings of such works as 1984, The Brave New World, A Clockwork Orange, and the Iron Heel. I was also influenced by the History of the Twentieth Century and the steady...

    3D printing is proving to be a potential game changer for a wide variety of fields. One group in particular that could benefit is the medical community, thanks to a recent development by scientists that could make it easier to print organs from living tissue. How? By printing structures inside of special gel that provides support during the build process. New Scientist reports that researchers from the University of Florida in Gainesville came to the breakthrough method while searching for a way to enable the printing of items that cannot support their own weight. The technique prints objects inside a...

    This is a post from a seller who recently sold an old phone on eBay and ran in to this little kerfuffle: Seller: I sold an old broken iPhone 4 for $15. I shipped the item like I normally do and I definitely remembered to put the phone in the envelope along with my thank you for purchasing letter and packing slip. However I received a detailed message about what the buyer intended to do if he didn't receive his $15 back within 24 hours. Since I can't post a screen shot I'll copy the text of what he said....

    Ive just upgraded with a new Mac computer and new software One of my first impressions after launching Chrome and Safari browsers is that the sliders on the right hand side of the brower windows are too small for my liking. Is this a new mac standard or do I have the option of increasing the width of said sliders? Freegards

    Donald J. Trump ✔ ‎@realDonaldTrump I just wrapped up a Q&A @TwitterNYC. Thanks for all your questions! #AskTrump 12:36 PM - 21 Sep 2015 Donald Trump's spirit animal is Twitter's little blue bird. The billionaire developer, former reality TV star and putative leading candidate for the Republican presidential nomination has turned his social media accounts into one-stop shops for his thoughts and views for millions of people without having to spend a dime. And while other candidates have made concerted efforts to craft digital strategies aimed at reaching new and younger constituencies through media like Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram, none...

    Oh, and the FBI can't find two months' worth of them. A whole new batch of Hillarys e-mails were released on Wednesday by a State Department kicking and screaming, but under orders from a federal judge to follow the law. And in case youre still buying Hillarys incredible assertion that she never sent or received a single bit of classified information in four years as Secretary of State, the Washington Times has the early reviews on what was found: More than 5 percent of the latest batch of emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, released Wednesday, contain...

    Crisis Managed is not Crisis Ended If you tuned in Sunday morning to see the inevitable candidates Meet The Press interview with Chuck Todd, you likely noticed the moment of the big fail. Yes, the whole segment was another in a long line of Hillary Clintons poor performances, but one question really stood out as problematic. Check Todd acknowledged that Democrats are nervous over Hillarys seemingly endless scandals, and he offered her the chance to reassure them that there was nothing more to the email story:

    Business Insider ^ | September 24, 2015 | Rob Garver, The Fiscal Times
    Recent media coverage of Donald Trumps presidential campaign has noted that the loudmouthed billionaire currently leading the Republican field in public opinion polls has been increasingly eager to complain to his audiences about how the dishonest media is covering his campaign. Floating theories about NBC suppressing coverage of its own polls in order to report on other findings less friendly to Trump and about the heat on the stage at CNNs debate last week, the real estate mogul and former reality television star has come across as a little bit paranoid. Of course, just because youre paranoid doesnt meant they...

    Forget 3D-printed food and 3D-printed cars. A hotel owner in the Philippines is 3D-printing an entire hotel suite, and unlike other 3D-printed buildings done before, this one will be completely and entirely operational, which means, if you're thinking of vacationing in the country soon, you'll be able to book a night at the 3D-printed suite. The Lewis Grand Hotel in Angeles City, Pampanga in the Philippines will soon have the very first 3D-printed hotel suite in the world. The idea to 3D print an entire room was proposed to hotel owner Lewis Yakich, materials science engineer and home builder from...
