    Public colleges disperse hundreds of thousands of dollars in financial aid to scammers; professor says it’s abuse of taxpayer dollars and real students can’t enroll in needed courses The California Community Colleges system is being overwhelmed by thousands of fake students, or “bots,” applying and enrolling in classes to scam money from financial aid. Kim Rich, a criminal justice professor at Pierce College, first noticed the issue during the summer semester in June 2021, when she discovered multiple “students” in her online class exhibiting suspicious behavior: submitting work done by someone outside the class, registering for the same courses, and...

    Twitter has locked the account of Lin Wood, the lawyer who is representing and advocating for Kyle Rittenhouse, the Kenosha shooter who is charged with murder after shooting dead two individuals during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin. As video of the incident is widespread on social media, Lin Wood is arguing self-defense, after even the New York Times reported Rittenhouse was being pursued by those he shot. Twitter has been locking the accounts of those who have supported Rittenhouse and those saying that he acted in self-defense, even though this is his official legal defense. Twitter has now even gone...

    Astronomers just got their most detailed look yet at supersonic 'bullets' of gas piercing through dense clouds of hydrogen gas in the Orion Nebula. Each bullet [image] is about ten times the size of Pluto's orbit around the Sun and travels through the clouds at up to 250 miles (400 kilometers) per second-or about a thousand times faster than the speed of sound. The bulk of both the bullets and the surrounding gas cloud [image] consists of molecular hydrogen. The tip of each bullet is packed with iron atoms that are heated by friction and glow bright blue in the...

    Veto upheld in $2.7 million dog food prank settlement By KERRY CAVANAUGH Los Angeles Daily News LOS ANGELES — Just three weeks after its near-unanimous approval of a $2.7 million settlement, the Los Angeles City Council reversed itself Wednesday and upheld a mayoral veto of the payoff to a black firefighter whose colleagues slipped dog food into his spaghetti as a prank. The council voted 9-6 to back Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's veto of the settlement with firefighter Tennie Pierce. Although the council action does not preclude City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo from conducting further settlement talks, for now the case is...

    Turnout Expected To Be Light In Tuesday Primary CINCINNATI -- Ohioans wanting to vote in primaries for governor, Congress and other offices have until 7:30 p.m. to go to the polls. Rain seems to be dampening voter turnout in parts of the state, but one poll judge in the Cincinnati area thinks nasty campaigning in some races also has been a turn-off. Don Zaidel said as many as 40 people would be standing at the door on a good election day when he opens the polling place in suburban West Chester, but today there were just four. He said some...

It's another to be so confident of a primary victory that you use a clock that counts down to the general election. But it's beyond belief, after getting your CLOCK CLEANED (so to speak) three out of five times in ballot-based county endorsement meetings (eking out one tie and one win), to not even acknowledge that there's a Primary Election...

    (relevant text from longer Dispatch editorial) _________________ Mike DeWine, of Cedarville, comes to his third Senate campaign with a solid reputation for integrity and a track record of independence in a Republican-dominated Congress. Though consistent in declaring his support for most Bush administration policies, he has held his ground when his position differs from that of the most-conservative wing of his party. His brand of civility and professionalism, not partisanship, yields results.

    With your help, we can replace the liberal ideals, liberal philosophy, and most importantly the liberal votes which Senator DeWine has exhibited over the past eleven years with our shared conservative principles, to: Protect and Defend the Sanctity of Life. I oppose abortion in all cases with the rare exception of protecting the life of the mother when the decision must be made as to which life will be saved. I also oppose human cloning; Protect Traditional Marriage. I feel that marriage is a sacred bond between one man and one woman and that states should not be forced to...

    Background at Previous FR Post:Running Scared in Ohio (RINO DeWine Rips Rumsfeld) DeWine’s Attack of Rumsfeld was Wrong! Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH) was wrong to lash out at Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld over his management of the War on Terrorism in a Washington interview earlier this week. We must learn from the past and that includes learning from our past mistakes, but obviously Senator DeWine missed those history lessons from Vietnam. In his interview with Salon\'s Walter Shapiro, DeWine stated that “Rumsfeld has made some very serious mistakes….Very serious mistakes. I think history will judge him very harshly.” He...

The soaring price of gasoline has sent tremors through Capitol Hill, with Republicans and Democrats scurrying for the nearest TV camera to assail the petroleum giants. Sen.

By Walter Shapiro With his neatly combed brown hair, button-down white shirts, middle-aged slouch and soft-spoken manner, Mike DeWine has probably never inspired a TV booker for a Sunday morning talk show to shout excitedly, "We've got the senior Ohio Republican senator.

    When (and How) Did Hamilton County Endorse Mike DeWine? Answer: Glad you asked. In its Friday profiles of the US Senate candidates, The Cincinnati Enquirer noted that Mike DeWine has been endorsed by Hamilton County's Republican Party. Those who have only recently begun following Ohio's upcoming primary races, especially the GOP US Senate race, need to know what happened in Hamilton County. It is an object lesson in corrupt party kangaroo cronyism and Old Media ignorance. Once you know what happened in Hamilton County, you will know that the county party's so-called endorsement of Mike DeWine isn't worth diddly squat....
