    Hundreds of Amazon employees briefly walked off the job Wednesday, calling on the company to reconsider its return-to-office mandate and curb its greenhouse gas emissions. Outside Amazon’s Seattle headquarters, standing underneath a banner that urged the company to stop its “short-term thinking,” Pamela Hayter told her colleagues she wasn’t nervous about speaking out anymore. “We’re here today because it’s the right thing to do,” the Seattle-based program manager said. “I’ve not been nervous. I’ve been fired up.” On Wednesday, nearly 2,000 Amazon employees joined the walkout, according to organizers who gathered pledges before action took place. Of those pledges, roughly...

    A Washington mom-of-three slammed her local school board for canceling music lessons for fourth graders after a school board member alleged it was rooted in 'white supremacy culture' and 'institutional violence.' Alesha Perkins blasted Olympia School District members after they voted last week to halt band and orchestra classes amid a million-dollar budget shortage. Perkins called out School Board Director Scott Clifthorne, who argued that the school district was 'entrenched in… surrounded by white supremacy culture' at a meeting of concerned parents last week. Clifthorne argued that music lessons beneficial but inequitable since students at certain schools can miss out...

    Germany will shut down its three remaining nuclear plants on Saturday, betting that it can fulfil its green ambitions without atomic power despite the energy crisis caused by the Ukraine war. The cloud of white steam that has risen since 1989 over the river in Neckarwestheim, near Stuttgart, will soon be a distant memory, as will the Isar 2 complex in Bavaria and the Emsland plant in the north. At a time when many Western countries are ramping up nuclear power in their transition to greener energy sources, Europe’s biggest economy is resolutely sticking to its plans — though not...

    Judge Kato Crews, nominee for US District Court for the District of Colorado, appeared on Capitol Hill Wednesday as part of his confirmation hearings and became the latest nominee who was unable to answer a basic legal question by Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA). Crews, who currently serves as a federal magistrate in Colorado, was unable to describe what the landmark US Supreme Court case Brady v. Maryland was about. Brady, decided in 1963, “held that withholding exculpatory evidence violates due process ‘where the evidence is material either to guilt or to punishment.'” Seems like a pretty important case (and principle)...

    Texas middle school kids asked to role-play as ‘seducing hooker’ in bizarre classroom game: mom Texas mom Laura Maria Gruber always considered herself a “woke” liberal in favor of progressive causes, even sending her young daughter to a charter school that celebrates “diversity, equity and inclusion,” according to the school’s web site. But she never thought her 13-year-old would be asked to play a “seducing hooker” in a bizarre classroom game. “I picked my daughter and her best friend up from school and my daughter said ‘We played this game at school, Mom, and you’re going to be upset,'” Gruber...

    Colin Kaepernick accuses white adoptive parents of ‘problematic’ upbringing, perpetuating racism Controversial football star Colin Kaepernick accused his white adoptive parents of perpetuating racism in a new interview. The former NFL star told CBS Chicago he struggled growing up in a “problematic” household, a throughline he details in his upcoming graphic novel, “Change the Game.” “I know my parents loved me, but there were still very problematic things that I went through,” Kaepernick said. “It was important to show that, no, this can happen in your own home, and how we move forward collectively while addressing the racism that is...

    ABC's "The View" has apparently lifted its oft-criticized audience mask mandate three years into the pandemic, as the hosts acknowledged the crowd's smiling faces Monday from the table. Audience members for the New York-based program have had to don masks since the show returned to the studio in 2021. The audience wore masks during Friday's episode of "The View" but on Monday, the hosts saw the mandate was gone. "Look at y’all sitting up here with no masks on," co-host Whoopi Goldberg said as the audience applauded. "Wait a minute now. So I’m talking and in my mind I’m going...

    Friends, family of ‘anarchist’ Oakland baker killed in robbery gone wrong don’t want jail time for thieves A woke California baker was savagely killed during a robbery this week — and her family and friends are urging authorities not to jail her assailants to align with her social justice beliefs.

    Gay and bisexual men will soon no longer have to abstain from sex in order to donate blood in the US, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said Thursday. The move comes after widespread calls from members of Congress, the American Red Cross and LGBT organizations to drop the ban put in place during the 1980s AIDS epidemic. Men who had sex with another man (MSM) in the past three months, or women who had sex with one of those men, are not allowed to donate blood under current rules. This is because those men were struck hardest by America's...

A Colorado astrophysicist who says the field is paralyzed by “systemic racism and white supremacy” and “very violent and hyper-masculine” terminology — such as “vampire star” or “cannibal star” — is speaking out about combating these issues in the classroom and beyond. “As an astrophysicist, I’m a product of institutions that are steeped in systemic racism and white supremacy,” Natalie Gosnell, PhD, an assistant professor of physics at Colorado College, said in an interview published in the school’s newspaper this month.
