The study, conducted by Dr. Jeremy Berneth, involved asking almost 400 employees, aged 25.9 on average, across seven US colleges about different events that have recently gotten substantial media attention. The study notes that the events consisted of 17 items developed to assess the proclivity to be offended, eight moral outrage items, 11 microagression items and nine political correctness items. It noted that some people have a high proclivity to be offended...

    If anti-Muslim hate crimes do not exist, they must be invented. Theyre simply too politically useful to do without. And so it is that the Minnesota chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) held a press conference Monday to demand the firing of a Starbucks barista who was so Islamophobic as to write ISIS on a Muslim womans coffee cup. CAIR also announced that it had filed a discrimination complaint with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights about the incident. If you think that the world is on fire and that CAIR should find more important things to...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. Governor Tom Wolf said at a press conference Monday that mask wearing could continue until a COVID-19 vaccine is developed. Im sort of thinking this [mask wearing] is until we get a vaccine," said Gov. Wolf. "But I dont have any real formal goal there." On July 1, Governor Tom Wolf announced an order, signed by Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine, requiring masks to be worn whenever anyone leaves home when social distancing is not possible.

    Milton, a professor of environmental health at the University of Maryland who studies how viruses are transmitted, has helped lead a group of 239 scientists who wrote an open letter to appeal for better recognition of the potential airborne transmission of coronavirus. They dont want to talk about airborne transmission because that is going to make people afraid, he said. Theres also an element of worry that if people think the virus is airborne, theyll stop doing other things they need to do to prevent transmission, such as washing hands, staying apart and cleaning surfaces. There is significant potential for...
