    Fran Itkoff, 90, has been volunteering for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for roughly six decades, helping multitudes of people who suffer from the disease that plagued her late husband. The elderly volunteer recently told Chaya Raichik of Libs of TikTok that her days with the MS Society have been unceremoniously brought to an end because she allegedly dared to question the organization's social construcivist virtue signals — the provision of gender pronouns in particular. While ostensibly an organization committed to fighting disease, the MS Society has in recent years become infected by identitarian and LGBT ideologies. In 2020, the...

    National MS Society makes a 90-year-old volunteer step down because she wasn’t “inclusive” enough. Her crime was asking what pronouns are after she was required to start using them. Fran was a volunteer for 60 years and her late husband had MS.

    After being stuffed into an airplane cabin for a long, redeye flight from overseas, you’re finally on your way home — but first, the government wants to shove a cotton swab up your nose. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is asking passengers returning from international destinations at four U.S. airports to volunteer for its Traveler-based Genomic Surveillance (TGS) program. Passengers at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport, Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C., and San Francisco International Airport can now have their nasal discharge anonymously sampled as they leave the travel hubs.

    “Why would anyone want to go, of their own free will, to a hell on earth that every prisoner wanted to escape from? Witold Pilecki was an absolute exception, but the mission that he was to perform at Auschwitz was also exceptional.” Tadeusz Marek Płużański, historian, journalist, and author of the book Rotmistrz Pilecki i jego oprawcy (“Cavalry Captain Pilecki and His Tormentors”) spoke to Piotr Włoczyk for How common was it during World War II for people to actually try to get imprisoned at Auschwitz in September 1940? History does not record any other such case. Why would...

    Teleios Research analyzed the financial and work efficiency of secular versus Christian private related relief organizations operating in the United States. The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability's online database was used for the Christian-based organizations and Charity Navigator for the secular-based organizations. The Christian list was analyzed first and matched to similar organizations on the secular list that were active in at least three states. Types of organizations included in this evaluation were family and child, medical, education, urban development, poverty alleviation, and legal services. Types of organizations from the secular-based list unable to be matched to a Christian agency...

    Seattle Times ^ | 3/18/2018 | Lt. Col. Brian Fleming
    Do our youth really understand their country’s military? By Lt. Col. Brian Fleming When in uniform and far away from a military post, I am often greeted by strangers and thanked for my service. They have paid for my meals and treated me to coffee. I truly appreciate the recognition of service to our country and the value placed on being a veteran. However, I believe most do not fully understand what that service really means. The “volunteer” in our all-volunteer force is what makes the military successful. As an officer in the U.S. Army, I meet young people in...

The Texans held a players meeting Saturday in Seattle to decide how to handle Sunday after McNair's comments surfaced, the source said. Texans left tackle Duane Brown told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Sunday morning that he anticipates that "up to 65 to 70 percent" of the team's players could kneel. He said the players would not remove the team's decals from their...

PARIS—As President Trump paid his visit to hurricane-wracked Puerto Rico on Tuesday a small army of individuals, sitting at their desks far from the spotlight and scattered around the globe, were doing their anonymous bit to put the ravaged island back together again. They are a new breed of “digital humanitarians.” Crowdsourcing the raw data of hurricane Maria’s trail of destruction, they are helping artificial intelligence experts...

On the other side of the park, hundreds of volunteers – from a young boy in a yellow soccer uniform, to a woman in...

    Working Together - Single-purpose, assistive devices have given way to more accessible – and affordable – apps. Perhaps just as valuable is the glimpse into the capable lives of people with limited vision that apps like BlindWays offer. SEPTEMBER 11, 2017 —When asked how technology might improve the lives of people with vision impairments, Joann Becker presented a deceptively simple challenge. “Well,” the tech specialist recalls saying, “I’d like to be able to find my bus stop.” Navigating Boston’s transit system can be challenging for any commuter. But for blind riders, like Ms. Becker, each bus stop and train...

    Dear Freepers, are any of you volunteering for Team Trump in your state? I did that here in California for the primaries, now I have been invited by Team Trump to volunteer for the general. I am just a bit confused as to the script or template the Team is using. If any of you are also volunteers, is it clear to you how to make the calls and what to ask the caller? It would be great to chat with another volunteer.

    When Lisa Barry went knocking on doors in support of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's presidential campaign in Iowa, she felt two shocks to her system. The first was the two-degree temperature outside. The second was the woman behind the first door Barry knocked on.When the woman answered the door, she could see liquid in Barry's eyes had already frozen, so she invited the Southeast Texan into her home.That was the experience Barry and others like her came away with, noting that while some Iowans have grown weary of presidential caucus time, many of them showed compassion for the foot soldiers.Barry,...
