  • Diversity Fail? All-Women Engineering Team Blamed for Collapse of Miami Pedestrian Bridge

    03/18/2018 6:12:54 PM PDT · by reaganaut1 · 147 replies ^ | March 18, 2018 | Sandra Rose
    The all-women engineering team that designed the ill-fated pedestrian foot bridge at Miami’s Florida International University were highly touted for their advances in a field that is typically dominated by men. But critics are pointing the finger of blame at the female engineers for design flaws that may have brought the bridge down. Investigators are still on the scene of last week’s bridge collapse that killed 6 people and injured 9 on the FIU campus in Southwest Miami. The investigation is focusing on the work done by a team of all-women engineers who were employed by one of the construction...

    Back in the 1980’s, the Army ran a series of successful commercials, with the slogan, “Be All You Can Be.” The corny ads depicted a US Army that was reborn during the Reagan administration and an Army that actually focused on killing bad guys and breaking things. Imagine that… Flash forward to the Orwellian hell of the Pentagon in 2018, where your military left is right, where men are pregnant, where women are transitioning to men, where lactation stations are now part of the military’s SOP, where the girl next door, at 5 feet nothing and weighing nothing will be...

    Uber Chief Brand Officer Bozoma Saint John has called on white men to ‘make noise’ about diversity in the workplace. CNN reports that Uber chief brand officer Bozoma Saint John has called on white men to encourage diversity in the workplace during a panel at the South by Southwest film festival. “I want white men to look around in their office and say, ‘Oh look, there’s a lot of white men here. Let’s change this,'” said Saint John. She claims that it’s not the responsibility of minorities to encourage diversity: “Why do I — as the black woman — have...

    A former recruiter for Google is suing the tech company alleging it used discriminatory hiring practices that put whites and Asians at a disadvantage to other groups — and that it fired him after he complained about it. Arne Wilberg, who filed the lawsuit in late January in California Superior Court in San Mateo County, claims that Google carried out policies for the past several years “reflected in multiple bulletins, memorandum, charts and other documents” that favored Hispanic, African-American and female job applicants and were against white and Asian men, according to his lawsuit. Wilberg, who recruited candidates for engineering...

    BRENTWOOD, N.Y. — The old minivan appeared near the school on a Tuesday morning, its Illinois plates the only thing out of place in the blue-collar suburbs of central Long Island. But as backpack-toting teenagers passed by on their way to Brentwood High, the van’s doors suddenly swung open. Out sprang members of the violent street gang MS-13, armed with baseball bats. They attacked three 16-year-old students they suspected of being rivals before driving off. When police spotted the van in the same neighborhood the following afternoon and surrounded it at gunpoint, the MS-13 members were in the midst of...

    Full title: Revealed: Police Failed to Act as 1,000 Girls Beaten, Pimped, Raped, and Even KILLED Over 40 Years in Britain’s Worst Grooming Scandal An investigation by the Sunday Mirror has revealed Britain’s worst ever grooming scandal, which saw authorities paralysed for 40 years by fears of “racism” accusations as grooming gangs victimised up to a thousand girls in Telford. The left-leaning newspaper claims its 18-month investigation found “abuse on unprecedented levels”, with three women being killed when abuser Azhar Ali Mehmood burned down their home with them inside and two others dying in connection with the scandal.

  • Hollywood Should Accept McDormand's Inclusion-rider Dare

    Go for it, Hollywood. You probably didn't watch the Academy Awards -- most people didn't -- but you might have caught a bit of Frances McDormand's acceptance speech for her Best Actress award. At the end of a stirring speech about women in post-Weinstein Hollywood, she said, "I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider." Don't feel bad if you don't know what an inclusion rider is. McDormand didn't either until recently. She told the press backstage that she had only learned about inclusion riders the previous week. So what are they? Simply put,...

    Fox News has learned that in the critical moments as first responding deputies were searching for an active shooter on the property of Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school, a commanding officer on scene apparently ordered some of the initial responders to “stage” and set up a “perimeter” outside -- instead of immediately ordering or allowing officers to rush in to neutralize the suspect, Nikolas Cruz.

    The Broward County Sheriff’s Office has identified to Fox News the captain who, according to sources, directed responding deputies and units to “stage” or form a “perimeter” outside Stoneman Douglas High School, instead of rushing immediately into the building, as the mass shooting unfolded there. Multiple law enforcement and official sources said the commands in the initial moments after Nikolas Cruz allegedly opened fire would go against all training which instructs first responders to “go, go, go” until the shooter is neutralized. As law enforcement arrived, the shooter’s identity and exact location were still unknown.
  • Ivy League College Won't Allow Freshmen to Room With Friends For This Dumb Reason (Duke)

    College is a bit of a safety net between being under your parents' roof in high school to living completely on your own as an adult. Students are on their own for the first time and learning about themselves. It's an exciting time but it's also an extremely scary time. You're fresh out of high school, you're leaving behind your family and moving to a new place. To make things even worse, one Ivy League college has decided to change how students' roommates are chosen. Beginning this fall, Duke University will no longer allow incoming freshman students to room...

    British police investigating a shop blast a week ago which killed five people in the central English city of Leicester, said on Saturday they had charged three men with manslaughter and arson with intent to endanger life. The five died when a blast ripped through a Polish convenience store and a home last Sunday, turning the building into rubble. Police said in a statement they had charged three men over the case: Aram Kurd, 33, from Leicester, Hawkar Hassan, 32, from Coventry and Arkan Ali, 37, from Oldham.

    Chuck Schumer votes against South Carolina federal judge nominee because he's white By Caitlin Byrd Mar 1, 2018 Updated 1 hr ago Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer rejected President Donald Trump's nominee for a long-vacant South Carolina federal judgeship not because of his qualifications but because of his race. The decision drew the quick ire of South Carolina's two U.S. senators and U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-Spartanburg, a former federal prosecutor. Schumer, a New York Democrat, said in a Senate floor speech Wednesday he would not support Greenville attorney Marvin Quattlebaum for a vacancy on the U.S. District Court...
  • Women in Cryptocurrencies Push Back Against ‘Blockchain Bros’

    When a cryptocurrency start-up that promised to revolutionize the fruit and vegetable industry shut down last month, it left behind one word on its website: penis. When a virtual currency company called DateCoin recently tried to entice investors for its initial coin offering, it posted a Facebook ad that featured a reclining woman in a swimsuit with text over her body that read, “Touch my I.C.O.” And after the North American Bitcoin Conference in January, which highlighted 84 male speakers and three women, the official conference party was held at a Miami strip club. Virtual currencies and blockchain, the digital...

    After all, freedom of speech is one of the pillars of “White supremacy.” Which, ironically enough, enables people like Mr Blow to publicly call the most powerful man in the world racial epithets on a daily basis. The fact is that if Mr Blow couldn’t write about “racism,” he wouldn’t have anything to write about. In reality, the rhetoric surrounding race has been hijacked and weaponized for political gain by those with an anti-White agenda. A word that has transcended its literal definition and evolved into a slur used relentlessly against non-conforming Whites as a modus operandi for character assassination....
