    Seriously, this happened...and you wouldn't want your school to get sued, would you? An Illinois school district recently received some heat from parents for allowing flyers from the Satanic Temple to be placed in the lobby of Jane Addams Elementary School. The flyers invited students between the ages of 6 and 11 to attend an "after-school Satan Club" program being offered by The Satanic Temple. Not to worry, however. Lucien Greaves, the Satanic Temple's co-founder, says the Satan Club won't try to convert children to Satanism or force them to worship the devil. Greaves told WQAD: "This actually isn't a...

    The priority deadline for Texas students to complete the Free Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) is on January 15. Texas high school students are required to submit that application to graduate... “It was a great struggle filling out the FAFSA,” Martinez said. Millions of students face the same struggle of filling out the FAFSA. Some say that the application is too complicated for some. Congressman Doggett has been working for years to make it simple.
  • Electric automaker Rivian valuation pops above GM, Ford in the biggest IPO of 2021

    The euphoria around Rivian kicked into overdrive Wednesday as it debuted as a publicly traded company, with an opening share price of $106.75. If that sticks, it would give Rivian an implied valuation of $90 billion. The opening trade was nearly 37% higher than its listed IPO price of $78. That absolute eye-popping number makes Rivian one of the largest IPOs in U.S. history and puts its market cap above GM as well as one of its backers, Ford (GM’s market cap is $86.31 billion; Ford’s is $78.2 billion).That share price continued to rise after it began trading around 1...

    Tesla CEO Elon Musk believes that electrifying personal transportation will require electricity generating capacity to double. And while ramping up output might feel daunting for anyone worried about the transition to electric vehicles, investors—and U.S. consumers turning on the lights—shouldn’t worry. “If we shift all transport to electric than electricity demand approximately doubles…this is going to create a lot of challenges with the grid,” said Musk on Wednesday at CodeCon, a conference held at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills, Calif. Now, Musk is no fool: He has built several entities worth tens or even hundreds of billions of dollars....

    As one of the most popular sports brands in the world and in Israel, the loss of those sales will weigh heavily on the businesses of hundreds of sports stores across the country. Israeli retailers are fuming after international sporting goods giant Nike on Sunday said it will stop working with them to market its products. The measure will come into effect on May 31, 2022, Nike said. As one of the most popular sports brands in the world and in Israel, the loss of those sales would weigh heavily on the businesses of hundreds of local sports stores. In...
  • Prince Charles will live in 'flat above the shop' and Buckingham Palace will be thrown open to the public in a radical overhaul of the royal estate when he becomes King

    The Monarch’s lavish living quarters at Buckingham Palace are set to be reduced to little more than “a flat above the shop” when Prince Charles becomes King. The plan is part of a radical drive to overhaul the vast Royal estate, which will involve the official London residence being thrown open to the public more than ever before. Other changes being considered under Charles’ wide-ranging plans include turning Balmoral into a museum to the Queen and moving the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge into Windsor Castle, The Mail on Sunday understands. Charles is said not to want the Berkshire residence...

    As parting shots go, it packed quite a punch. But then it had been coming for some time. In an open letter announcing his resignation from Portland State University in Oregon, assistant philosophy professor Peter Boghossian condemned his former employer as a “social justice factory, whose only inputs were race, gender and victimhood and whose only outputs were grievance and division”. What had once been a bastion of free inquiry was gripped by “a culture of offense where students are too afraid to speak openly and honestly”. His broadside echoed right across the United States.

    Rep. Matt Gaetz called the Anti-Defamation League “racist” after it again called on Fox News host Tucker Carlson to be fired for promoting the white supremacist “Great Replacement” conspiracy theory. Gaetz, the Republican congressman from Florida, also endorsed the conspiracy theory. On his popular show Wednesday, Carlson trumpeted the idea that Democrats are working to bring foreigners into the United States in order to weaken the voting power of white people. He said,”this policy is called the ‘Great Replacement,’ the replacement of legacy Americans with more obedient people from far-away countries.” The “Great Replacement” is a term used by white...
  • Biden Could Owe as Much as $500K in Back Taxes, Government Report Indicates

    New York Post ^ | September 23, 2021 | Steven Nelson
    Republicans say a new non-partisan report indicates President Joe Biden improperly avoided paying Medicare taxes before he took office — raising eyebrows and the possibility that he owes the IRS as much as $500,000 in back taxes. Biden is leading a Democratic push for a $3.5 trillion bill to subsidize childcare, education and health care by targeting tax avoidance and raising tax rates on higher incomes so the rich “pay their fair share.” A House Ways and Means Committee draft of the bill would end the accounting trick apparently exploited by Biden and boost IRS funding for audits — but...

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will tell world leaders at the United Nations that humanity has to “grow up” and tackle climate change, saying humans must stop trashing the planet like a teenager on a bender. Johnson is due to host a major United Nations climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland in six weeks’ time. He is using a trip to the U.N. General Assembly in New York to press governments for tougher emissions-cutting targets and more money to help poor countries clean up their economies. In a speech to the General Assembly on Wednesday, he’ll say...

    As a new semester begins amid a resurgence of the coronavirus, 26 of the 50 largest public university campuses in the U.S. are not mandating that students be vaccinated, according to an analysis by The Associated Press. Approaches on enforcement vary widely even among universities that do have vaccine mandates, with some offering leniency for students who opt out and others expelling those who do not comply. Administrators are emphasizing high numbers for student vaccinations as key to bringing some normalcy back to campus and keeping instruction in classrooms rather than online. Where mandates face political opposition, schools are relying...

    North Carolina judges struck down the state’s latest photo voter identification law on Friday, agreeing with minority voters that Republicans rammed through rules tainted by racial bias as a way to remain in power. Two of the three trial judges declared the December 2018 law is unconstitutional, even though it was designed to implement a photo voter ID mandate added to the North Carolina Constitution in a referendum just weeks earlier. They said the law intentionally discriminates against Black voters, violating their equal protections. The law “was motivated at least in part by an unconstitutional intent to target African American...

    How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! Isaiah 14:12 KJV I’ve noticed something strange in the conservative movement for decades now—the desire to call our enemies (those who are stripping away our rights and aiming to do us harm or worse) “stupid.” I’m not sure where this idea came from, or why exactly its been employed. I remember, for instance, fundraising letters I’d read in the Nineties that would use phrases such as “loopy liberals.” I hated that phrase even back then....

    This week we honored the 2,977 Americans who lost their lives in the most deadly attack against the United States in history. Like Pearl Harbor Day, 9/11/01 is a day that should live in infamy. But will it? Will we remember what we learned that day? On that crisp New York morning, America was attacked by those who hate freedom, hate democracy, and hate peace. For a brief moment in this fresh, young century, still filled with hope and promise, these 50 states were indeed United. We stood together with one voice and we said to the world, "We are...

    With lemon and black plumage, the Scott’s oriole flashes in the desert like a flame. But the bird’s name holds a violent history that Stephen Hampton can’t forget. He used to see the orioles often, living in California. Now that he lives outside the bird’s range, “I’m kind of relieved,” he says. Hampton is a birder and registered citizen of the Cherokee Nation. Winfield Scott, a U.S. military commander and the bird’s namesake, drove Hampton’s ancestors and other Native Americans from their land in the 1800s during a series of forced marches now known as the Trail of Tears.

    Does it make Max Boot feel big to tell a former President of the United States to "shut up?" The Washington Post columnist and Never Trumper did just that on today's Morning Joe. In his recent Washington Post column, Boot argued that neither Trump nor Mike Pompeo nor Mike Pence, have any right to criticize Biden's handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal since they set it in motion. Boot summed up his position by trumpeting: "People like Trump and Pompeo just need to find a good opportunity right now to just shut up and stop criticizing something that they set in...

    Police are painting rainbows on the side of their squad cars in a bid to beat online hate crimes and 'give confidence' to the LGBT+ community. Critics have said forces should be focusing on 'real' issues such as knife crime and that the colourful cars might seem less intimidating to the public. The cost of painting the cars, described as 'hate crime cars', is 'quite minimal' but are believed to give a 'huge impact' on the community. Deputy chief constable Julie Cooke said: 'Cars are there in the communities on normal policing patrol just to show the community that we...
